Well, we’re told that tonight, fantasy warfare gets real. Got to say, my idea of fantasy warfare doesn’t start with a two hour pre-show, but I’ve got a cup of tea in my hand, so I guess that’s some sort of English fantasy right there. Personally, my idea of fantasy when it comes to wrestling involves Seth Rollins doing Charlotte Flair’s entrance, complete with splits. It’s just a thing.

This week, Sora talks to us about the Old Gods returning, the seas of blood, plagues of locusts, and all the ways in which the world ended. In WWE, however, no one noticed any of this, even when an Elder Being appeared in the ring, surprising even his wife.
Welcome to SmackDown Live! We open this week with a replay of the events of last week’s Talking Smack, with the Miz getting in Daniel Bryan’s face. It was an incredible segment, one that had everyone buzzing, so I am not at all surprised that we open on this!
After that replay, we’re backstage with Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan. Shane tells Daniel that he owes the Miz an apology, because true or not, as General Manager he can’t get in the talent’s face like that. Daniel agrees, but also notes that it’s a bit ironic given Shane’s beef with Brock Lesnar.
Well, here we are, the last Raw before the draft, and it’s up late, because I believe – unlike Vince McMahon – that sometimes sleep is more important than wrestling. Also that if I sleep through my alarm at twenty past twelve at night, I clearly need the rest. So here we are, Tuesday morning and I’m starting this recap ten hours later than usual! Is Raw ten hours now? Or does it just feel like ten hours?
Okay guys, Steph here for Raw tonight, and I apologise if I seem a little bit disappointed in the show, but you have to understand that I just watched WCPW Loaded. Which was BLOODY GOOD and had Noam Dar and Jay Lethal in it. So, after that, tonight might be a bit disappointing. Also, it’s American Day, and I’m probably too British to properly appreciate the patriotism we’re to expect tonight.
The New Day are opening us up and prepping us for the show, and the New Orleans crowd are totally up for it. I’d actually forgotten this Sunday was MitB, so now I remember this is going to be a busy week for me! Kofi gives us a run down of the match MitB, then mocks Kofi’s shoes for being for old people, saying they’re orthopaedic – please don’t let this be a teaser for splitting these glorious unicorn babies. Their chants of New Day Rocks are broken by Enzo and Big Cass arriving!
Vince McMahon, the head of WWE (the King, or God’s Chosen Emperor, if you will), is the patriarch of all he surveys. We are all his puppets, and we dance at his bidding. Nothing the WWE Universe does is done without Vince behind the scenes, pulling the strings. We boo at his command, cheer for CM Punk at his command.
Do you have burning questions? Well, we have burning answers! (Note: answers may not be burning. Unless Kane has touched them, in which case we assume no responsibility for the fire damage.)
Hello, fellow wrestling fans, it’s time for another weekly round-up of the hot and shameless romances happening right under our noses on WWE’s programming. We’ve not had to look too closely, but our dedicated research team have been hands off socks and on cocks for you to make sure you’re up to date with all… Continue reading GAYWATCH: 18th-25th March ’16
