It’s probably safe the assume they’ll give the crowd at least one Scottish winner at Clash. Drew would be the most obvious winner, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they gave Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn the tag team belts, given what happened to Alba’s mum last month.

It would be a massively emotional moment if Alba got the pin in front of a home crowd, and WWE have a track record of cynically exploiting real life tragedy like that. It’s a triple threat match too so they wouldn’t even need to make Bianca and Jade look weak by taking the pin.

Pure capitalist greed forgetting that people have lives outside wrestling and life's expensive as it is.
Yep. I thought Clash in Cardiff was expensive, but went for one of the cheaper seats there.
Even All In, it was reasonably priced for the first one (except for the floor seats). But this year seems to be higher which is crazy. Im happy when these prices arent paid for and WWE has to drop them significantly.

What happened to the mum?
Its strange, but I have a feeling Drew might get screwed out of his title opportunity. I think it would be a mistake having Drew lose the Clash main event again though.

She died after being hit by a car last month. She was visiting Alba in Florida when it happened.

Rather than lowering prices for future international events they'll probably just do less or none of them now.

The mindset is probably "No point doing them unless we can price gouge."

Yeah its annoying. France had the biggest arena gate and it was only around 11k. THey milked the prices on that one, the one where they went to Australia and of course this Scotland one.
I can only imagine what prices would be like if they did one of the big four in London.

Called it (although Isla got the pin)

Wow what an introduction this was, amazing stuff by the production team. Can’t remember seeing a better debut to a faction as this. Great for Bo Dallas as well to carry on Bray Wyatt’s great work. Looking forward to seeing how this faction does.

I’m in two minds about this. This was a great introduction and both Joe Gacy and Nikki Cross are perfect additions to the faction given their existing gimmicks.

But I always felt that WWE underused Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family. They always seemed to lose their feuds so they became less of a threat every time they resurfaced. And Bray really should have been the one to end the Undertaker’s streak, as he was the obvious choice to be his successor.

So I’m a little sceptical about how well WWE will use a reheated version of the Wyatt family, and it just seems a bit cynical following Bray’s death. I’ll keep an open mind though.

Weird thing happened on the Raw I dowmloaded. When Drew and Pearce finished talking and Drew walked out the camera guy went back to Gorilla and a guy there said good job and shook the camera guys hand. Not sure if it was like that for everyone or not.

First time without McMahon no?

Having Goldberg squash Bray was disgusting.

Uncle Howdy was around before Bray's death with Bray. But yes you are right in terms of they need to get the storylines right for it to succeed.

The bottleneck will be Bo himself. I don't thing he has it in him to be a success as this character.

The drew angle is quite predictable. We all know when he’ll “return” and what it will be to do

Should be fun all the same though

The writing and execution has to be alsmost perfect for the new Wyatt stuff otherwise it can descend into corny very quickly.
Would say itll inevitably end up that way but we will probably get a couple of nice Wrestlemania entrances out of it at least

That horror segment got me back in a little bit, I'll definitely keep an eye on it. Loved the Bray stuff and Fiend was a favourite of mine until he faced the unbeatable force known as Goldberg... What a farce that was.

I was surprised to see the lengths they went through with the blood and everything on a PG product.

I'm sure they'll feck it up and these guys will be jobbers in no time but HHH has better creative vision than Vince did the last couple of decades so there's hope.

Can’t see it working with or without bray. It’s all too clean these days, it used to work back in the day because the lighting and camera work was darker (if that makes sense).

Think it’s just too difficult to book these days, but would love to be wrong.

Maybe they won't ever wrestle or when they wrestle, they transport their opponent to a dark underground ring or something.

The minute you see them doing clotheslines and super kicks... It'll kill the gimmick very fast :lol:

Unless they have a move set like Bray did. But no idea who these wrestlers are or their in-ring abilities.

Terrible viewership for AEW this week, not sure why it was down so much but it was. Worst thing in wrestling this week, even with that awful Wyatt scene. Takes some doing to beat that but somehow they did
