Mantic's save labor busy sorting counl=nters
Everything else will be shipped in the second package. So there will no Enforcer Faction Boosters or Faction Booster Bundles in the first shipment. Damn it.
Also the finishing touches to the Creating DreadBall book are being done and it should be sent to all backers (as a PDF) soon.

Next is the HeroClix news. This week there was previews of: Cable from Marvel Avengers vs. X-Men; Cosmic Boy, Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad from DC Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes; and Neko Mane King from Yu-Gi-Oh Series One.

Now for the Shadows of Brimstone KickStarter news. The KickStarter ended Monday morning and the new stuff we get out of it since the last update were: A female variant of the Drifter Hero Class; three Henchmen Allies; the “Derelict Ship” Otherworld; Serpentmen Shaman; special dice as a none Mine cart add-on; a bag of Dark Stone Tokens; B.E.A.C.O.N. Drones; “No Man’s Land” Trederra Encounter Pack; three Harvestors; a Blacksmith Ally; the Hell Cannon with crew; “The Captain’s Log” Derelict Ship Encounter Pack; the Wandering Samurai Hero Class in both genders; and a Dark Stone Hydra.
Sadly the stretch goals that were not made were: Three Trun Hunters; six Trederran Mutants; six Tribal Ghost Warriors; the “Belly of the Beast” Otherworld; and the new game mode “The Impossible Hell Train.
The KickStarter made $1,341,305 when the original target was $30,000 and go 4,727 backers.

Next is the Battle Systems Sci-fi Modular Terrain. They have managed to unlock or got so far in the space of a week are: A third Well Mounted Medi display will be added to Add-On Pack 7; a Locker and Bunks add-on kit; the Battle Systems 3D Construction kit; a new add-on with bits of bobs; and the ability to convert Reactor Cells into Stasis Pods at £146k.
Stretch goal that were left as I start to post this were: An Extra Transfer Conduit, two extra V-consoles and two extra Cargo Crates added to the Stronghold pledge level ad £152k; and the Docking Bay add-on and an unknown amount. This will end by the end of the weekend so let us see what will be unlocked by then. Sadly due to a unforeseen event which is detailed later on in the news, I had to pull out of this KickStarter.

Now for the Journey: Wrath of Demons news. The KickStarter ended Monday morning and the new stuff we get out of it since the last update were: Two new map tiles were added to the “White Bone Demon” expansion pack; a plastic Bridge, a new bridge tile, a pack of five downloadable Quests and one plastic Zigi Spider Demon Warrior all added to the Boxed Game Upgrade; and the second expansion pack “Spider Demons”.
Sadly the stretch goals that were not made were: A resin door set added to Collectors Upgrade; an extra Spider Demon Warrior, an extre Zahe Spider Demon Priest and two extra Map Tiles added to the “Spider Demons” expansion pack; and a resin Ziran Spider Demon General added to the Collectors Upgrade.
The KickStarter made $425,553 when the original target was $55,000 and go 1,858 backers.

Next is the RoboTech RPG Tactics news. We got another preview of a set of cards during Friday night. The Character Cards are done and have been submitted for approval to Harmony Gold. The rulebook is also awaiting approval and is expect to be ready this week. Also the last of the sculpts is done and production is starting. On a bit of non-gaming RoboTech news, Harmony Gold is releasing a new feature length film called, Robotech: Love Live Alive in the UK in the beginning of next year. It mixes unused footage from Tatsunoko Production's 1985 OVA Mospeada: Love Live Alive with new footage to create this hybrid film that recounts the journey of Lieutenant "Lancer" Belmont, a veteran of Robotech's "New Generation" from before his first encounter with Scott Bernard up until the aftermath of Admiral Rick Hunter's expedition to liberate Earth from the mysterious Invid race.

Now for the Kingdom Death news. The Black Friday update came early with a ton of news. This was so last moment and major I am writing it on Blogger as I am posting this instead of on word to cut and past into Blogger. First off it is being pushed back to the second quarter of 2014 (originally was December 2013 than was push back to the end of the first quarter of 2014 two months ago), but this will most likely be very early in the second quarter. So early that some MIGHT get their stuff on the first quarter. 
They showed off the hard plastics of several of the Pinups as well as Beyond the Wall and several on still on sprues.
More CAD images of some of the Armour Kits this includes a new Armour kit that has been added to the game that will be in the Dung Beetle Knight expansion pack due to the extended wait.  
Another page from the Aya comic book in the rulebook. They have revealed that in was originally going to be 8 to 10 pages long but in will now be 20 page. I cannot wait to see this.
New images of the Hunt Phase Board have been revealed and now it has a flip side that organises the cards in the Showdown Phase. Very nice.
Now for the Black Friday stuff, first their is a Black Friday half price sell on all their non Black Friday only stuff on their store. With this there has been a restock of Pinup Architect, Pinup Savior, Preacher Pinup and Pinup Great Game Hunter (some have sold out as I post this). Also there is a Black Friday Grab Bag of Death has been added to the store with ever a figure that never has been released (or will be) or four miss cast or missing parts figures from past runs as a Black Friday only item. But the grab bags are not the only Black Friday only item. Due to tons of requests to yet late comes into the KickStarter, just for Black Friday three Survivor level bundles have been added to the store. Bronze is the Survivor level from KickStarter, Silver is the Survivor level from KickStarter plus all the expansions and gold is the Survivor level from KickStarter plus all the expansion plus all the plastic promos and plastic Pinups. Because of this I had to un-back Battle Systems Sci-fi Modular Terrain and bit the bullet. I have gone for bronze level. My mum will have killed me if I had of gone silver. I Also picked up a grab bag and Pinup Great Game Hunter.

Next a legend is coming back next year for its 25th anniversary and it has gone to KickStarter for funding. The Legend is Hero Quest. It started on Monday and has smashed thought the original goal with ease. Due to copyright laws it is only officially coming out is Spain as that is where Gamezone Miniatures have the right for it. Hasbro, BM and Game Workshop all still co-own the rights for it, but will not release to game or give up the rights. So postage will be expensive. The game is schedule for a December 2014 release, barely meeting to 25th anniversary of the game, however knowing most KickStarters (which Mantic and Renaissance Miniatures on the how have been good with) I dealt that the game will ship in 2014. Releases are always pushed back several months due to problems and under estimating the workload.
The Stretch goals unlocked so far are: Monster Cards (by the sound of it added to the box game); a Captive Knight; a Rolling Boulder; Black spell cards; a Female prisoner; a Sarcophagus insert; Primordial Chaos spell cards; an extra Ogre; Descending ladders; a Secret room tile; a Guillotine; a Captive Assassin; six extra equipment cards; three Colony Spiders; and two Spider Eggs.
Unlock other KickStarters, HeroQuest are not reviling future goals, just the amount until the next goal is achieved, which is $547,000 CAD. Yes it is Canadian dollars instead of US dollars. However on Thursday evening it became the subject of an intellectual property dispute. This means it’s funding and the countdown to its deadline have been stopped. If it becomes available again, the countdown will continue and the deadline will extend past the original deadline for as much time as it was unavailable. This was too much of a good thing to happen. Maybe BM and/or Game Workshop will realise now the public really waits this game back on the shelves and release it themselves or decide for their profit to team up with Gamezone Miniatures (but bring the damn date earlier). But that is wishful thinking.

Now for the Zombicide news. There is a new mission out called Storage Wars and Prison Outbreak has been officially released to the general public.

Lastly is the Privateer Press news. A preview image of Gatorman Bokor and Bog Trog Swamp Shamblers Minions unit has been revealed. No clue when it is out.



Future Events

  • On Mondays at Wargames Workshop MK is Wargaming night.
  • On Tuesdays at Wargames Workshop MK it is Card games night (or is it just Magic the Gathering).
  • On Thursdays York House in Stony Stratford is open from Wargamers and Boardgamers.
  • On Fridays at Wargames Workshop MK it is Boardgames night and Friday Night Magic.
  • On Saturday the 7th of December, Guardians of Tyr will be running a Warhammer 40,000 tournament at Wargames Workshop MK.

  • On Sunday the 15th of December, Guardians of Tyr will be running a Steam Roller Warmachine/Hoards tournament at Wargames Workshop Northampton.
  • On Saturday the 18th of January, Guardians of Tyr will be running a Star Wars X-Wing tournament at Wargames Workshop MK.

Painting and Converting

This week I have done two another Teraton Player, a Krot, an X-Guard Dwarf, C.C., a Holy Sword, two Walker Zombies, one Runner Zombie and one Fatty Zombie.

This week's figure front view
This week's figures rear view
This week's DreadBall figure
This week's 7TV Figures
This weeks Zombicide figures

Next week should be another Walker Zombie, the remaining four Daughters of the Flame and Female Survivor Aya.



Armies

This week I have the 300 rating version of the Tau Invasion Force and the 200 rating X-Guard force for 7TV. Sadly due to the fact that I am waiting for the Enforce Medic from Deadzone to use as ? for the X-Guard, and the fact is has now been pushed back until the second shipment, I am using a random unpainted Dwarf figure as a sitting for him for now. Some people might recognise the medic in the Tau Invasion Force as the medic from my Hive Organic Collective team. This will be his real team as I plan on replacing him in the Hive team in the future. With what, I have no clue at the moment.

Opps, the Medic should have a higher Rating, 5 or 6 off the top of my head.

Until next time, Armour Up.

Neoscream's Life: 18th to 24th of November

AMX-004 Qubeley
Welcome to the Neoscream's Life post. This is a weekly post of some of the things I have done last week and news on the great Geek Goddess, AJ Lee.This week's opening picture is the last of the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Mobile Suits/Armours. Next week will be the start of the Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ ones.



“Life”

I was back at work this week after the two week chaos of having a new kitchen. The buses were more of a nightmare than normal they are running more than five minutes early, not turning up or running so late it arrives a moment just before the next bus arrives. I have not arrived to work on time at all this work do to the buses and I have been trying to catch buses a bus earlier than I need. No wonder Milton Keynes bus service has been voted one of the worst bus services in the UK. Luckily I have not gotten into trouble because most of the time it was coming in earlier than I am down as the management wanted me to do stuff.

The kitchen fitter came on Monday evening to fix the fan, but sadly he did not do the shelf (I think I was misspelling it last week) or sealing under the window seal (which I forgot to talk about). He said he would come Thursday after 11AM to do it but texted on the day to say he was not coming. He will now be coming Friday evening to do it which the assistant did, however he only fitted the shelf. He said he would come Monday evening to seal the window seal as he did not have any sealant in his van. Also BnQ finally picked up the rubbish Tuesday afternoon. Was it to do with last week's blog post or they just finally got off their butts.

During the week the person who was meant to be doing the fence phoned up saying he would be coming on Sunday, but he never turned up or called. My dad had to call him. This time his excuse was that he does have his van anymore. Let’s just say we will be going with someone else now. As this job should have been done weeks ago, if not months (I have lost count).

This week I have been busy studying like mad for the chapter five exam as it was more than three times the size of previous chapters. The chapter is on Operating Systems. I manage to get 91.7% in the test. Next week will be the chapter six exam that covers Networking (another super huge chapter, and the check point exam that will cover chapters 1 to 6. So it was back to the studying again and this time in it worst.

An old friend of mine, Roxi was in Milton Keynes this week for a week. We watched both Thor: Dark World and Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor in the cinema and played a game of Super Dungeon Explore. I was playing as the console while Roxi played the three heroes in a 16-Bit game. Maybe we should have done 8-bit as Roxi got swamped with monsters.

As you might be able to tell off the bottom of this post I have seen both the cinema and TV versions of Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor. For what I was told to expect from the cinema version which sold me to going to it was that it had fifteen minutes extra and it was it 3D. The 3D was awesome but apart from a couple of minute introduction from the Doctors I could not see anything extra. In fact there was less as the cinema version did not have the trailer for the Christmas special which was on the TV version. Plus the tickets were more than a normal film. Do not get me wrong, I was great seeing it in 3D, but I do feel a bit ripped off. It might have been a good idea to start a little earlier and include the two mini episodes that goes with it before it starts. It cost the same as Thor did but we watched Thor in a more expensive cinema, with glass as we forgot them and it was a deluxe screen with beater chairs.



“AJ Lee (and WWE)

On Raw the Authority decided to place Vickie Guerrero in a match as punishment for what happened in the previous week’s Raw. Why am I talking about that here? Her opponent is the Diva who’s life she made a living hell of lost year, the Diva’s Champion and Geek Goddess AJ Lee. And this time there is no special guess ref to screw over AJ. REVENGE TIME. Vickie tried getting out of it but it lead to her being taken TO the ring on a stretcher. She tried running away and getting Tamina Snuka to hit her, but it never work. AJ led her back to the ring were AJ slapped on the Black Widow on her winning the match without any effort.

Also on Raw, Big E Langston (with a new remixed entry music) finally got his title match against Curtis Axel. He defeated Axel to become the new Intercontinental Champion. Congrats to Big E, AJ trained you well. After the match Vickie fainted. Not the destruction I was expecting, but still fun to watch.

All of the divas were out at ringside for Tamina’s match against Naomi on Main Event. Sadly I never saw it, but Tamina won an there looks like there was in big bust up between the divas.

Sadly on Smackdown, that jealous @itch Vickie who never learns from her mistakes placed AJ in a handy cap match against Cameron and Naomi. They did not even need to tag each other in. If it was a fair one on one match AJ would have kicked their butts like she has done in the past, but two on one she sadly had no chance.

Also Big E betides AJ on Smackdown by teaming up with Dolph Ziggle. They fought against Axel and Damien Sandow and won, thanks to Big E.

Like normal you all have to wait until next week for the Survivor Series results. I hoping AJ Black Widows all the Total Divas cast. However this week added a new match to the line up Intercontinental Champion Big E verses Axel.

Gaming with Neoscream: 22nd November 2013

Welcome to “Gaming with Neoscream”. This is my weekly gaming post for miniature games, non-computer RPGs and some card games.



Gaming News

First off is the Mantic news. Loka has begun shipping and I have received mine pretty quickly. The figures are a bit big compared to 28mm, especially the fifth element queen. I think I might be able to use her in Kingdom Death than 7TV like I planned. It was in total twenty-seven plastic figures and one metal figure for about £28. At first it does seem like a good deal but after checking the store you can get eighteen for £15, it is not really a saving. However it does look like I got it before general public (not including the release event at a/the Nottingham Waterstones).
Deadzone is almost ready to start shopping, just odd bits like the terrain still to arrive. They MIGHT start shipping Deadzone next week if things go well.
Also DreadBall Ultimate patches are up on Mantic's store for pre-order and they will be exclusive to the store (and maybe conventions).

Next is the HeroClix news. This week there was previews of: Iron Monger 2.0 and another Iron Man from Marvel The Invincible Iron Man; Magik from Marvel Avengers vs. X-Men; and Mystical Elf with the Graceful Dice spell and the Skull Dice trap from Yu-Gi-Oh Series One. The Marvel The Invincible Iron Man set is now out in the USA, so how long will it take for my brick to arrive?

Now for the Shadows of Brimstone KickStarter news. They have managed to unlock or got during the last seven days: Grizzly Bear add on (not a part of the Mine Crate level) another male variant for the Gunslinger; Trederran Raiders; the “Black Fang Tribe” Mission Pack; the “Fire and Brimstone” Cynder Encounter Pack; the Cowboy Hero Class add-on; the Undead Gunslinger; Trederran Field Marshal; a second female variant of the Rancher Hero Class; an Undead Outlaw Gang; “Badlands Expedition” Game Supplement; the “Burning Sands” Blasted Wastes Encounter Pack; the “Cult of the Crimson Hand” Mission Pack; Beli’Al; and the Ancient One.
Stretch goal that were left as I start to post this were: A female variant of the Drifter at $1.05m; three Henchmen Allies at $1.1m; Serpentmen Shaman at $1.15m; three Harvestors at $1.2m; the “Belly of the Beast” Otherworld at $1.5m; the new game mode “The Impossible Hell Train at $2m. This will end by the end of the weekend so let us see what will be unlocked by then.

Next is the Privateer Press news. The day I post this issue 51 of No Quarter Magazine has been release and this coming Wednesday will see the release of the Temple Flameguard Protectorate Unit, the Reciprocators Convergence Unit and the Night Troll Trollblood Light Warbeast.

Now for the Battle Systems Sci-fi Modular Terrain. They have managed to unlock or got so far in the space of a week are: An extra Command Screen, an extra V-console and three extra Cargo Crates added to Stronghold pledge level.
Stretch goal that were left as I start to post this were: A third Well Mounted Medi display will be added to Add-On Pack 7 at $125k; a Locker and Bunks add-on kit at £130k; and a Detention Cell/Air Lock as a add-on pack at unknown amount (might even be at £130k with the other one); and XXX as a add-on pack at unknown amount (again, might even be at £130k with the other one).

Next is the RoboTech RPG Tactics news. All the Squadron and Support Cards have been approved and there are examples up for them.

Now for the Journey: Wrath of Demons news. They have managed to unlock or got so far in the space of a week are: Cleaner Peng add-on; Double Nightmare Bundle as an add-on; two Boof Bullserkers, two Yataru Bone Warriors and a limited time only a plastic female version of Tripitaka were added to the Boxed Game Upgrade; two bundle deals add-ons with all the Soul Hunters and Cleansers (one with and one without Soul Hunter Captain Xi Fung); the first expansion pack called “White Bone Demons"; a Resin Scenery-Water Well added to the Collectors Upgrade; a third Yangu Bone General was added to the “White Bone Demon” expansion pack; the “White Bone Demon” bundle add-on that gives you extra daemon minions; Dragon Qinglong add-on; and all backers of $320 or more (including shipping) will get a free plastic Yagara Bone Beast on top of and resin Jiangshi.
Stretch goal that were left as I start to post this were: Two new map tiles added to the “White Bone Demon” expansion pack at $370k; a plastic Bridge added to the Boxed Game Upgrade at $385k; and resin door set added to Collectors Upgrade at 2,000 backers.
This will end tomorrow so let us see what will be unlocked by then. I have now backed this at "The Resin Sage" pledge level with the add-ons of plastics of Dragon Princess Xiao Yan, Cleanser Zhilan, Soul Hunter Captain Xi Fung and the female version of Tripitaka. The pledge level comes with a Resin version of the Money King and an art book.

Two more Elven Adventurers figures

Lastly is some other game news. Last Saturday I pick up Sedition War: Battle for Alabaster. It is another board game from Cool Mini or Not, just like Zombicide and Super Dungeon Explore.



Past Events

Last Saturday I took part of the Warmachine/Hordes Steamroller tournament. Due to no having the time to write up about this until the day I am posting this as I have been busy studying like mad, I can barely remember what happened. If memory serves me right I was up ageist Jack Penn in the first round and he was using a Cygnar force. Sadly I lost. Again if memory serves me right I was up ageist Gary Webb in the second round and he was using a Circle force. Sadly I lost. On the third round I was up ageist Benji Hanson (or have I gotten round two and three mixed up?) he was using a Khador force. Again I sadly lost. In the fourth and final round I was up against Joseph Mead and he was using a Retribution force. I lost again. So overall I lost all four games, coming last in the tournament. Well in was my first tournament and it had been quite a while since last time I played. Hopefully by the next time I will have at least a unit of Reciprocators to give me more chooses. Coming lost did mean I won a prize, a wooden spoon. My force is listed under the Armies section of the post

Homemade Rules

The way my course is going, I will be dropping this section until February as the chapters are getting bigger (this week’s was tripled the size of previous week’s) and I also have to start going over past chapters for mid course and end course exams. The painting section will be dropping in numbers too, but that will start in December. I will be doing five to seven points instead of seven to ten a week.



Until next time, Armour Up.

Neoscream's Life: 11th to 17th of November

AMX-003 Gaza C (Mobile Armour)
Welcome to the Neoscream's Life post. This is a weekly post of some of the things I have done last week and news on the great Geek Goddess, AJ Lee.



“Life”

On Monday I meanly printed and played XCOM as I had to stay down stairs because of the Kitchen fix because I was the only one in. The main fitter and the plumber arrived at about 9AM and the assistant fitter arrived at a guess about half an hour later. The main fitter did really do much apart for organising and picking up a couple of bits. The assistant only stayed until about 11PM doing bits. The plumber who is a tiler too finishes the pluming at about 1:30PM. She (yes the plumber/tiler was female) left to do a couple of things and to have lunch. She said she would be back about 2:30PM to start the tiling, but she came back at 3:30PM just a couple of minutes after my mum go back from work. The plumber/tiler stayed until 7PM. She got a large chunk of the tiling done.

On Tuesday the assistant fitter arrived about 8:45AM and the tiler arrived fifteen minutes later. The assistant fitted the oven hood and couple of other bits and then he left. The tiler finished the tiling and filling at about 4PM. As there was no word from the guy doing the flooring and the fitters said they will not put the main kitchen appliances back until the flooring is done, we decided to call Carpet Right and they said they will fit the next day however we had to remove the old stuff ourselves. About two hours later the guy we originally called up to do the flooring turned up to have a look of it. Sorry it was too late now we said as he was might to be here last Thursday to give us a quote. After dinner we all as a family removed the old laminated floor in the kitchen and hallway. The Kitchen was a much harder job than we thought as every millimeter of the laminated flooring was glued on. I did come up with the great idea of using the steamer to help which speed things up, but it did took about two and a half hours to do the tiny kitchen. The hall only took less than five minutes.

On Wednesday morning me and my mum started putting bit back into the kitchen and sweeping the floor of the kitchen and hallway. The laminated flooring fitters arrived at 1:45PM and lay it in about fifteen minutes. We phoned the fitters to say it has been done however they never turned up finish off the kitchen. In the evening I did a ton of studying.

On Thursday all the fitters (not to laminated flooring fitters ones) appeared around 10AM to finish things off. They did everything apart from the self under the kitchen sink and plugging in the cooker as they realised they need someone special to plug it in to the gas mains. They left about 3PM, by which time we had straitened the living room back to the way it was. My mum started cleaning the carpet and I went off to Collage. We did two chapter tests this and installed Windows 7 on a virtually computer. The first chapter test was on Computer Maintenance which I scored 95.5% and the second was on the IT Professional which I scored a shocking 100%. Wow.

On Friday was a busy day. First I was up early to download XCOM Enemy Within. It was a pain at I could not find a way to download it. I ended up asking Steam to verify my copy of XCOM Enemy Unknown was up to date which then made it updated itself with the Enemy Within DLC. I will still a page from Beasts of War and talk about the game in the next "Gaming with Neoscream" post. However I did not get time to play it. Me and my mum left at about went out to get stuff. We first went to Primark ro get to pick up a couple of pair of trousers as I realised while tidying my room that I did not have many non work trousers. After that we went to IKEA to get my chest of drawers and other bits. However the direct route was blocked due to something happening at the MK Dons' stadium. While finding another route, I search on line to see what as I know it could not be a football match as it was a Friday and I had a hunch as a saw a person walking away with a large Predator action figure. It was Collectamania. At IKEA decided due to time to only pick up one chest of drawers to replace the cheep one from Argos. Next we went to Asda to do some food shopping and to get a couple of bits for the Kitchen. After that my mum wanted to get back home for the guy who was sorting out the cooker, but I wanted to go to Collectamania. So she went home and I headed to Collectamania. I picked up ten new HeroClix figures which sadly I never got cards for. Also I got Sedition War: Battle for Alabaster for just £15. I headed home afterwards and finished off pasting the "Gaming with Neoscream" post. Later I got rid of the old chest of drawers, built the new one and then filled it up. Someone was meant to be to be fitting the self under the sink, but no one turned up. Also the fan for the new oven hood broke down.

The rubbish still waiting to be collected
On Saturday I went to the Warmachine/Hordes Steamroller Tournament. I walked out of it with a prize. However I will live the results of the Tournament and what the prize was until the next "Gaming with Neoscream" post. When I got home I worked on this blog as I had not gotten around doing much since Thursday. No one had turned up for the old kitchen rubbish yet or to fit the self ever. However the person who was meant to be doing the fence phoned up saying that he would be coming Sunday and we were told that the fan would be fixed on Sunday by the Kitchen fitters, so me and my mum could not go out to do stuff.

On Sunday I posted the Cosplay Deviants and tided up the bottom end of my bedroom as I needed resorting after changing over chests of draws. No one turned up during the morning which was really pissing off my mum as we needed to have everything done by Sunday as we are all back at work on Monday and will it coming up to Christmas,  none of us can get the time off. In the afternoon, the girlfriend of the person doing the fence phoned to say he has gone to the hospital due to stomach pains and then a couple of hours later the kitchen fitters phoned to say that they will not be able to come today. So yet another day wasted waiting around for them and now we do not know when we can get it done. Also BnQ still have not taken away the rubbish,, which we were told it would happen nearly a week ago. It is not just us it is effecting,  but our next door neighbour to.



“AJ Lee (and WWE)

On Raw last week AJ was supporting Tamina Snuka who was up against Nikki Bella. Tamina won the match with a little divine intervention. AJ also took out Brie Bella. Sadly the Bellas had the last laugh when Brei attacked them while celebrating.

AJ's ex bodyguard, Big E Langton, also had a match against Alberto Del Rio. This was due to Big E helping John Cena when Alberto attacked him after his match against the Real Americans. Sadly Big E had to tap to the Cross Arm Breaker.

AJ was in a title match against Natalya. Sadly I never saw it. Natalya won, but it was due to AJ being disqualified as Tamina interfered in the match while Natalya had the Sharp Shooter on AJ. After the match AJ slipped on the Black Widow on Natalya.

AJ was supporting Tamina in her match against Natalya who wanted revenge. Natalya who with the Sharp Shooter.

During a House show last week, poor AJ fainted in the middle of a match while on the edge of the ring and collapse down to the ground (for real). The WWE revealed she is OK now and it was due to dehydration. She needs to look after herself better or she needs someone to look after her.

 OK this is a last minute add on as I have been forgetting to do it. Here or the matches revealed after Raw on the 19th for the next WWE pay per view Survivor Series. As this was last moment there is no feedback about the coming matches.
WWE Champion Randy Orton verses the Big Show
World Heavyweight Champion John Cena verses Alberto Del Rio
CM Punk and Daniel Bryan verses Erick Rowan and Luke Harper
WWE Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust, The Usos and (spoiler) the returning Rey Mysterio verses The Shield and The Real Americans (Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team Match)
