    My Little Pony…Really!?! Really?!!? Predict that next week again, it will indeed be TeleTubbies time on the 9.99’er!

  2. LP1 says:

    I’m really looking forward to this weekend. I’m gonna be at both NXT and SummerSlam. Decided not to do Raw though.

    An update on the NXT schedule for tonight. They begin taping at 7:30pm EST. They’re going to be taping a 90 minute special that will air in the regular NXT timeslot on Wednesday. Then at 9pm they air TakeOver live.

    Also has it been confirmed that the Tag Team Title match has been bumped to the Kickoff show? It seems likely that at least one match will get bumped, but I haven’t heard anything definite.

    • David says:

      I agree…looking forward to this weekend…enjoy NXT and Summerslam LIVE!

      As for the Tag Title I believe reports were it will be bumped to the Preshow, still nothing yet from WWE as they usually announce the preshow match beforehand. PPV is basically dead and is all Network now so really doesn’t matter if matches are on kickoff or main show, its the same thing, same event, same venue, same crowd…no difference.

      But i wouldn’t be surprised if there is no preshow match and just the panel kickoff hyping Summerslam. The thing I see is that Summerslam could be the “wrestling” show as there isn’t going to be any musical performance like WM, maybe couple skits with Jon Stewart, but I could see them giving all matches a good amount of time.

      • attitude.era. 4.life says:

        The Day that Cena wrestles on a pre-show,is the truly New Day where there’s No telling the difference between a pre-show-show and a man show.

    • Mark D says:

      Despite the talk of a 90 minute NXT on Wednesday it is only scheduled to be 60 minutes — at the moment at least.

      • LP1 says:

        @David, thanks man. And I agree that the pre-show and the actual PPV are pretty much the same thing since it’s all on the Network.

        @Mark D, it’s possible they haven’t updated the schedule yet to reflect the change. Or maybe they changed their mind and decided to only keep it at an hour. Although Triple H himself did say it was going to be 90 minutes during the conference call the other day. I still don’t understand why they didn’t just make TakeOver a 3 hour show tonight. It wouldn’t have hurt.
