It is great news and likely will keep him WWE for longer but I'd have seen him go ROH or/& NJPW in a similar way to Cody.

Talking of NJPW, anyone going be watching Strong Style Evolved from Long Beach this weekend?

This is the card:

Golden Lovers vs. The Young Bucks
IWGP US Championship Match Jay White (c) vs. Hangman Page
Okada and Ishii vs. Zack Sabre Jr. and Suzuki
Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Will Ospreay
Tanahashi, KUSHIDA, Dragon Lee, Taguchi vs. SANADA, Naito, BUSHI, Takahashi
Cody and Marty Scurll vs. Guerrillas of Destiny
Chuck Taylor and Toru Yano vs. Killer Elite Squad
Gedo and Goto vs. Juice Robinson and David Finlay
Roppongi 3K and Rocky Romero vs. SoCal Uncensored

Amazing news, it just felt right when he was doing those kicks again on Smackdown, I still can't help having this niggling feeling something will go wrong, here's hoping I'm wrong.

It's honestly revamped my interest in watching Smackdown again & yeah I feel the same way too about a possible re-injury (I guess you just need to trust all the specialists he's seen) plus you know WWE is just going to play on that at some point to pull you in. Naughty

Now WWE just need to get rid of this split show nonsense and I'll give Raw a watch as well.

Split show thing is a weird one as I think I said before it gives some wrestlers a higher spot on the card that might get otherwise but would I like to see AJ v Seth, Banks v Charlotte, The Bar v Usos yeah I would.

I've not been keeping up with the wrestling since I started travelling; before that, really, sine I moved home to prepare to start travelling. Even so, I saw the buzz on twitter and watched the Daniel Bryan clips. Man, that guy can bring the feels!

I went through a phase of really disliking Bryan, not because of anything he said or did but because of the way his fans would kick off if anyone else got any screentime or any kind of push, as though it were a zero sum game and only DB could have a top spot storyline.

But whenever I watch him, that all washes away. His genuine passion and emotion (and excellent wrestling) just can't be ignored.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Well, you tried to at least but Korakuen Hall's a popular venue...

Daniel Bryan is my favourite wrestler and his return promo was an absolute cracker. He's so easy to cheer for and his raw passion shines through so clearly. Like you guys, I'm now interested in checking out Smackdown again.

Mania's lining up to be one hell of a show!

Mas: What do you reckon about Strong Style Evolved? I thought the show was pretty fun from start to finish - that main event was amazing too.

The tag match between Okada and Ishii vs. Zack Sabre Jr. and Suzuki was the match on the card, Sabre is just outstanding and I'm now super excited for Sakura Genesis.

And I'm now becoming a bit of fan of Suzuki-gun, I always thought they were the worst faction but both Sabre Jr. and Suzuki have made me change my mind but I like someone in all the factions.

Yeah, they were a bit shit last year as ZSJ was barely around outside the G1 and Suzuki's NEVER title reign was full of surprisingly average matches from him, nothing to write home about.

His IC reign has been great, ZSJ is on fire and TAKA is a great fit alongside him, Taichi's fitting in nicely now and the Suzuki-gun juniors are doing well too. I'm even enjoying KES more than I normally do too lately. I think it's mostly due to the fact they've stopped interfering and causing havoc in their big matches and keep that nonsense to the multi-man tag matches.

WrestleMania's on tonight. Is anybody excited? It's looking extremely promising on paper - there's nothing that's immediately looking like a piss break.

Excited and why I'm off but I don't know how it will even come close to NXT and even what I saw of ROH.

Well, I would have really enjoyed that show had it been about 2 hours shorter. I had the preshow on as I was eating and chatting with mates, but even without that a show which runs for about 5 and a half hours is ridiculous. It totally killed the last few matches for me, which is a real shame as the show was brilliant in the first half.

Some more spoilery thoughts:
