#TooSweetOrDelete Set for Mania Weekend – Cageside Seats

It looks like if Thom wants to see the Broken Hardys versus the Bucks of Youth he’ll have to make that 45-minute drive from Orlando to Lakeland, Florida.  Ring of Honor announced yesterday that the match will take place at Supercard of Honor on April 1st in Lakeland, FL.  Unfortunately, it looks like the only way to see the match will be if you’re in the building. From the press release:

This dream tag team match will happen LIVE in Lakeland and will not be broadcast. The only way to see this one is to be there LIVE!

WWE UK Championship Tournament Review


For the first time in WWE history, they have crowned a WWE United Kingdom Champion!  This weekend, sixteen competitors started the tournament hoping to become the inaugural champion, but only one man was able to come away as the winner.  Building off the success of the Cruiserweight Classic championship tournament from the summer of 2016, which showcased the top independent and international superstars under 205lbs, the WWE hoped to put its stamp on another corner of the wrestling market, the thriving UK independent scene, with this 16 man bracket.  However, unlike the Cruiserweight Classic which took place over several weeks, the UK fans were treated to the whole tournament in a matter of 2 days!

Take the jump with me to hear some of my initial reactions to the tournament and find out just what went down in Blackpool.   Caution: full spoilers after the jump, so if you missed it this weekend, wait to read my thoughts until after you’ve watched the shows on demand!  It’s good to be back!
