Happy Saturday Everyone!

I had pizza last night and it was a magical experience. Can’t beat The ‘Za!!

I’m off to Villa Park today to see if Everton can keep their good start to season going. Aston Villa is always one of my favourite away days as it’s pretty easy to get to, there’s free parking in walking distance from the ground, and Villa Park itself is one of the nicer and more historic stadiums in all of English football. I just hope The Toffees leave Birmingham with the 3 points.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Caught some of the Dark Side of the Ring “Plane Ride From Hell” episode, and all I can say is that I feel terrible for the poor flight crew that had to deal with all of that stuff going on. I know some like to romanticise the old days of how wrestlers were all wild men who got up to craziness (and indeed it does still go on today to a certain extent) but I think the Plane Ride is a great example of what happens when stuff like that is allowed to get way too out of hand. Wrestlers going to their hotel rooms to play Xbox is infinitely preferable to them getting smashed and then running around naked in my opinion, even it is more “boring” than what wrestlers used to get up to with more regularity in the “good old days”

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Found out today that I’ll finally be heading back to the office after a LONG time of working at home, so these updates might not be quite as detailed from next week regards news and whatnot, but I’ll still make sure to get a thread up every day. I’m quite relieved to be honest as the lack of human interaction was becoming a genuine bummer recently.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Pretty rubbish game last night for the most part, although I personally enjoyed the 10 minutes where Everton were good. That Townsend goal was something else and should really be in the conversation for Goal of the Month. Absolute blammo!

Won’t spoil Raw, and to be fair I haven’t watched it, but it sounds like you might want to check out Thomas’ review.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Rampage is tonight, with PAC Vs Andrade, Brian Pillman Jr Vs Max Caster and a trios match with Team D.M.D Vs Team Soho. I’m sure Smackdown will be happening as well, but I don’t really care about that. Hopefully it’s fun if you like watching it.

Continued thoughts with Triple H and his family at this difficult time. May he be back and swinging hammers in due course.

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Rampage was a super easy watch and I felt the closing angle hyped the pay per view well. Looking forward to All Out, although I’m working Monday morning so I won’t get to watch it till Monday Evening, so I may be scarce for most of Monday around here outside of the Daily Thread.

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Dynamite wasn’t the best episode this week, but I thought they did an excellent job hyping up the pay per view and I’m looking forward to seeing it at the weekend. I’m sure Scott will share the special FITE link if you want to get it via that and help out the Blog.

Pinch, Punch, Beginning of the Month!!

Was thinking of trying a new theme for the feature images this month, but I’ve still got quite a lot of Video Game box art that I haven’t gotten around to using yet, so we’ll switch to something new when I’ve finally worked my way through those.

Transfer deadline day was a big load of nothing for Everton outside of signing Rondon, and we’re still light at Right Back so I hope they wrap Coleman in cotton wool after every game this season. How did your respective teams do? Happy? Sad? Indifferent? Why not share in the comments!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you’re all well and safe, especially if you’re in anyway close to Hurricane Ida’s path.

It’s a Bank Holiday over here in England, meaning I get a day off work, which I’m currently spending watching Smosh “Try Not To Laugh” videos over on YouTube before I head out for a walk in the afternoon. I’m feeling pretty lazy, so I might order a pizza later rather than cook my own dinner. I’ll see how I feel once I’ve got the shopping in.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Been playing Quake on the Switch this week. Only ever played the borked Saturn port on consoles, so playing the game with a good framerate and controls has made me appreciate it far more than I used to. I have occasionally fallen afoul of the “run around trying to work out what you’re supposed to do” trope that sometimes happened with these older FPS’, but in general I’ve enjoyed it and will keep playing it over the weekend.

Speaking of Video Games, I also write for a VG site called Gaming Respawn and recently did an article on Dynasty Warriors 4 if you’d like to read it. Link below if you’re interested.

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Dynamite was kind of “just a show” last night, but I didn’t really mind too much. Even when a Dynamite episode is “so-so” you can usually see where everything is going story wise and I think they’re doing a good job of getting characters over whilst also hyping up the pay per view. Sometimes it’s nice just to have a wrestling show to watch, and that’s what last night was to me.

I’m off to Huddersfield tonight for some hot sexy League Cup action. The highlight of the night will be if I can make it to Huddersfield before they close the Wimpy Burger. Come On You Blues have asked me to write up a preview, which you can read HERE. I watched some brief clips of Raw on YouTube, and I’m actually somewhat interested to see what will happen with a certain wrestler challenging another wrestler for her belt. It’ll be kind of like Freddy Vs Jason, whoever wins we all lose.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Managed to catch the Edge/Tyler Black and Dragunov/WALTER matches from the weekend and they were both as great as advertised and very much worth your time. WWE Network has been playing up for me so I haven’t seen the last two matches of Takeover yet, but I can’t imagine they’ll be as good as that NXT UK Title match was. Talk about one match essentially making a show a Thumbs Up all by itself!
