Ok, ok, I know its pre-determined and labelled fake but it doesn't stop me enjoying it. Instead of thinking of it as a sport, think of it along the lines of Hollyoaks and Coronation Street but with more violence and better(!) acting. Its classed as 'Sports Entertainment' so I think its best here in the Sports forum.

I'm sure there are some Pro wrestling fans on Pistonheads so I thought I'd create a thread for those of us who enjoy it and wish to discuss it. Those who don't kindly leave us to it, we've heard all the abuse before!

Anyway, let me kick off. WWE seems a bit hit and miss at the moment, the celebrity guest hosts on Raw are bit of a gimmick and I'm not enjoying them. Smackdown is the better show imo and I'm loving Chris Jericho's work.

Over in TNA, there seems to be a bit scandal surrounding Kurt Angle, Jeff Jarrett and Karen Angle. Is it real or is it a work? Oh and TNA's Victory Road is on Bravo 2 tonight at 9pm.

Lets just hope there are other Wrestling fans out there or I might look a bit silly!

Im a WWE fan but currently extremly annoyed that my sky + decided to "UPDATE" 80 mins into this weeks RAW.

I currently really enjoying the Team up of HHH and Ceena to bring down Randy Orton,

Currently debating wether or not to Pay for the night of champions PPV.

I haven't followed it since the Rock left. Any sign of a comeback? The days of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin were the best imo.

Totally agree. The Attitude era was the greatest, probably the strongest period for the WWE. Unfortunately The Rock looks unlikely to ever return, he is too successful in movies. Stone Cold makes the odd guess appearance and was inducted into the hall of fame at Wrestlemania 25. I went through a long period where I had no interest in it after The Rock, Stone Cold, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar all left but recently I'm slowly getting back into it. I've been watching more of TNA recently.

I was a big fan from 1989 to 2003. I switched of when HHH gave himself a world belt. Austin was finished, Rock was moving on, Foley was going downhill, and not even Lesnar and Angle could kep me watching. I didn't switch off completely i still tried to catch the free big shows and the Rumble and WM but eventually I realised I had completely stopped watching the weekly shows...I think because they had turned so bad. It was too HHH orientated and the stories were just the sts. I have turned on occassionally to watch some stuff and tried to watch WM, but Vince should realise he neds to let go and get some real wrestling writers back. The best thing I saw in recent years was the 'Battle of the Billionaires'.
Vince needs to admit that he is not alays right and let Cena go, and to hope HHH has an injury that keeps him out for two years, then let some new talent develop.

I have to agree. The main eventers on Raw seem to have rotated between HHH, Cena and Batista for the last few years. WWE are in desperate need for a break through star.

Shane McMahon handed in his resignation over the weekend. Not sure what's going on there. Does anyone know why?

Hulk Hogan is back!

He has offically signed yesterday for WWE's biggest rival TNA. Eric Bischoff has joined him too. His debut is this Friday on Virgin 1 at 9pm or Sat night on Bravo at 9pm if you want to watch it.

I have mixed feelings about it. TNA seemed to be heading in the right direction by starting to push the younger talent. Now I'm not sure with the signing of Hogan (56) and a very strong possibility of Ric Flair signing (106). Good business by them though I think. It'll make casual fans watch TNA over WWE.

There are also rumours that Goldberg, RVD, Mr Kennedy and Umaga are close to signing deals with TNA. We shall see.

Mr Kennedy is in TNA, and goes by the name Mr Anderson, think i read on PH somewhere Umaga is dead, RVD is in TNA, and for those who remember from waaaay back in the day, so are Scott Hall and x-pac. Its still naff beyond belief, mrs slopes and her dad insist upon watching it, then slag it off whilst doing sorolleyes
