IMPORTANT SPOILER RULE: 

Since the episodes are released on demand (1-4 this Monday, 5-8 the following week), Jmerc and I are gonna ask you guys to spoiler tag posts involving what goes on during the matches, about who advanced or stuff like that within 5 days of whatever batch of episodes (1-4, 5-8). Please include what episode/s the tag references outside the tag to encourage discussion but ensure people only see what they want to see.

 

As an example (no actual spoilers included):
EPISODE 2 SPOILERS!

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

 

 

This won't apply starting the saturday after the second batch is released and once we get to the live finals obviously since that'll be live.  :)

A weekly 1 hour women's wrestling show is gonna feel so weird. What separates them from the rest of the roster like the cruiserweights? They work on the indies?

The tournament was originally scheduled for January, but moved back when WWE prioritized a U.K. territory and proposed television show getting off the ground due to ITV airing a wrestling product.

But... but... William Regal was working on the tournament for 6 months, how can this be???

I suppose WWE are doing this now to spite other companies again? That seems to be the popular idiotic opinion on these things.

C'mon. You're on this forum and didn't read the reports?

 

The ideas were all pitched alongside the CWC. Aswell as a "Asian", "European" and "Australian" tournaments.

Whatever it may be that caused it to be moved, if it is in fact moved. I'm glad it actually not happened in January, a lot more talent seems to be available now for this tournament compared to just a few months ago.

What does that have to do with what I said? The WWE UK tournament happened when it did because of the ITV thing, I don't care if I get called an idiot for saying that, it's true.

 

It's like you people know nothing about the WWE, smh.

Suddenly it's about the timing. Beforehand it's always been about the existence of the tournament

Speaking of which, why dont we have an "International" tournaments altogether? hell, even throw in guys like Cesaro, Sheamus, Sami Zayn, Finn Balor, Aleister Black, Rusev, etc to make the whole tournament more appealing to casual fans. One could even suffer a "shocking defeat" to push other lesser known international star. The winner should become Intercontinental Champion, because imo thats what that title should represent, a "main title" for international superstars. they could later vacant the championship for a WWE championship match a la Aries.

Also it was a two day tournament and that was easier to film then a 10 to 11 week tournament. So if they are making a women's show will they bring back old Women's Tag belts back from the 80's?

I agree completely. I didn't get into the UK tournament all that much, whereas I was super excited for the CWC, and I think a big part of that was the 1 hour a week setup. It was done incredibly well and I would hope the Womens tournament follows that skeleton (which it looks like it will).

No it wasn't. I know I typed it like that, but I don't mean it that way. For this tournament, I think a 2 day is a better idea.
