The MSG Show

I watched the WWE Network's Live From Madison Square Garden in the early hours of yesterday morning.

I wish I hadn't.

The show was okay. Nothing special at all. It was a glorified WWE house show at best.

I was hoping there would be a title change on the night, so that's why I stuck around when I really should have waited until the following morning to watch it.

Alas, no titles changed hands.

Or waists.

I have been hyping up how great the WWE Network is. A show like the one on Saturday should be something cool but - as I was viewing it - I didn't get the feeling that I was seeing something that was worth the subscription alone.

Good job there are other things on the Network that is worth paying for!

Jets & Toilet Paper

The New York Jets landed in the UK on Thursday.

Not only did the team and its staff touch down in preparation for tomorrow afternoon's game against the Miami Dolphins, they came packed with toilet rolls.

Three hundred and fifty rolls to be exact.

According to a report I read, the organisers felt that British toilet paper isn't good enough. So, to remedy this, they made the decision to bring over their own.

Only in America, right?

At least I didn't note that it was a 'crappy idea'.

Whoops. Too late.

The FPT System went 3-5 overall in week 14.

Goodbye To September

I usually have a post in early September where I go on and on about how much it's my favourite month.

There wasn't a post like that this year. It was mainly because I kept putting it off and then - by the time I thought it was time to do something - the month was almost over.

So, instead, I'm going to say goodbye.

Adios to my favourite month.

American football is back, the trees are starting to shed leaves..

But the sun was still shining for most of it! What's up with that!?

Phoning It In

I'm phoning today's post in.

My nephew has missed Monday and Tuesday from school as he has been feeling unwell. As his parents had to go to work, I looked after him during the days.

The result - I managed to catch what he has!

Should be back to normal by tomorrow.

SummerSlam In Brooklyn For The Next Two Years

WWE announced yesterday that SummerSlam will take place from Brooklyn for the next two years.

The Barclays Center was the venue for this year's edition of the pay-per-view. It not only hosted SummerSlam but also the NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn show the night before as well as the post-SummerSlam episode of Raw.

It was a huge success for the company. It even garnered some mainstream attention via ESPN.

I hope the three show run becomes a regular part of SummerSlam weekends from now on.

Before this year, the event had been a regular of the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It moved to the east coast as WrestleMania 31 took place on the west this year.
