Blog of DOOM Daily News Update – 7th August 2021

Happy Saturday lads and lasses

Everton are playing Man United in a pre-season friendly today. Apparently some naughty Evertonians tried buying tickets in the Man United end because the game is happening at Old Traffic and United have sussed it and cancelled the tickets. I don’t think there was likely to be any issues or anything like that, but it’s probably best to err on the side of caution just in case. I’m personally not going to watch the game today, but I’ve got my season ticket and will be at Goodison for the season opener against Southampton, where we’ll probably lose. I’m sure Rafa Benitez will enjoy a friendly Everton welcoming committee for his home debut though…

Scheduled today on the Blog: Thomas Hall has a review of Smackdown up from last night. I have no idea what happened and haven’t really cared to check to be honest. Scott has a repost of a WCW Clash of the Champions review. Scott also has a WCW Saturday Night review scheduled for about 15 minutes after this goes up, along with another SummerFest countdown article. I’ve done a review of Nitro from 1997 that should be showing under this update as well.

Now some news from Cultaholic

Weren’t both Rust and Fish in a feud with one another? You have to wonder what the heck is going on with WWE now, especially as the TV deals mean they are always going to be profitable and don’t really need to be getting rid of people like this

Jordynne Grace disappointed with the lack of women who have gone through the “forbidden door”

I mean, Kamille was just on Dynamite and Melina was on Impact Wrestling recently. Maybe it’s not so much that enough women aren’t going through the forbidden door that she’s annoyed about, but more that certain women aren’t going through it (i.e. her)?

Jay White and FinnJuice won’t be in G1 Climax this year

It’ll be a shame not to have White conniving his way through the tournament once again, as that’s always a yearly highlight for me

Finn Balor would like a third run in NXT

I think if NXT paid as well as the Main Roster there would probably be quite a lot of guys on the main roster who might like to work on that brand to be honest

Like the old Pulp Fiction montages from ECW? Well then you’ll probably like this vid from the LWF!
