At least to me.

    If you're comparing it to legitimate fight sports, it'll fall short, because it'll always look fake, but if you accept it for the spectacle, you can buy in, despite knowing it's "not real."

    If you think you'd like it, give it a go. WWE has like fifty shows on a week. Though they're not my cup of tea. Impact airs on Pop TV, and NJPW (pound for pound the closest to fight sports you'll find) on AXS TV.

    Yeah, then it makes much more sense.

    I've wanted to try it out for some time, but there's no way to watch it in Norway. Thats why I've only watched some on youtube. Royal Rumble is awesome lol.

    Really? No one carries any of it? That's a shame.

    Gotta say John Morrison is the shit. Loved what I saw from him in Lucha Underground. Unbelievable how the WWE couldn't get this guy over. I'm going to start DVRing impact and check it out. WWE just sucks. So much talent is being wasted on shit storylines. It's turning fans against would be talents like Lashley, Stromam, Samoa Joe and even Baron Corbin.

    Can't find AXS on optimum/cable vision.

    The problem with WWE is overabundance of wrestlers, they don’t know what to do with them

    Awesome to hear your giving Impact a shot. This Thursday is the fallout from the PPV. Should be tons of fun. Would be a great jumping off point for you.

    There is minimal coverage of any US sports here in Norway unfortunately. Zuc has raised the interest for the NHL, but beside that it's not much. I usually have to stream if I want to watch US sports.

    Wrestling fans mourn deaths of WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff, 70, and Brian Lawler, 46

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/mo...729-story.html

    Nikolai Volkoff, the former pro wrestler who played a gruff Russian villain during his 40-year career in the ring and often appeared with tag team partner the Iron Sheik, has died. He was 70.

    Also confirmed Sunday was the death of Brian Christopher Lawler, the son of 2007 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Jerry “The King” Lawler — who is probably best-known for his rivalry with comedian-turned-wrestler Andy Kaufman.

    Brian Lawler, 46, hanged himself in a Tennessee jail where he was being held on DUI on changes. His father was by his side when he was pronounced dead in a nearby hospital.

    God. It wasn't very good. The small crowds are sad.Then the horrible camera work and audio (same guy trying to get chants started right next to the mic'ed camera).

    Some of the in ring stuff was down right bad. But WWE has been just as bad. I'm shocked there aren't more serious injuries by botched or fucked up moves. Nevermind the horrible selling or over selling that happens on their screw ups. Clear misses by 12 inches... Again that's both companies..

    There was some funny back stage stuff though. I'll definitely give it another shot.

    ROH is where it’s at, only matter of time until WWE steals and ruins the talent

    What do you mean, only a matter of time? Where do you think 90% of the talent in NXT came from?

    I mean, I'm not sure what you're expecting on crowds, but anyone who isn't WWE or NJPW aren't going to bring in 20,000 people. Not ROH, not Impact, not MLW, etc.

    If I were you, I'd download Slammiversary and start there. If you're still not into it, it's not for you, and that's OK.

    I saw some rumors of a possible return to the ring for The Great One. Can any of you wrestling experts confirm?

    It randomly showed up one day in the feed at the bottom of my Google app but when I clicked the link it took me to some random dude's twitter. I tweeted the dude who runs the Wrestling on Demand Kodi add on figuring he has to be a pretty hardcore wrestling fan but he never responded. I also tweeted Dwayne himself but I never expected a response lol. Oh well.
