  6. So I was at the run yesterday with Mandy when I complemented one of the other dog dads on his Inner Circle shirt. Guy sidled over, pulled out his phone and showed all sorts of selfies with them backstage from AEW Grand Slam... then some clips of him working out in the ring. Turns out Joey Ace (of ECWA, various sundry indies and an AEW Dark cameo) has been living in my complex the entire time. What a funny world.

  7. The kids are all about the polished video breakdowns of things now, right? We need someone to go over Eddie's five stages of grief during the finish of the match. Denial: What do you mean you got the submission on Parker? I had Jericho. I had him right here? Why did the bell ring? On top of a cage, in Kawada's move. Jericho. He's a coward! I had him. Anger: You screwed me again Claudio! Just like before! You stole my moment! You knew how much this meant to me! You Swiss asshole! Bargaining: I mean, we both did it at the same time, right? I had Jericho. I beat him this way already. Maybe this is just our win together. Maybe I can accept that. We all knew he was going to quit. Depression: Oh no, no, it's not. Who am I kidding? You did it. You came up here. You saved me from the Walls. You did it. You swung him around. My back hurts. Just, no, I don't want to get up. My back hurts and you did it and this was my moment, my chance, and now it's gone forever. Acceptance: Fine. Fine. I'll fistbump you. Fine. I hate you. You did it. I'll fistbump you. But I'm Eddie Kingston so I'm still in depression and I'm never going to really accept this bullshit.

  10. On the way to daycare dropoff today, my son and I were discussing tonight's Dynamite. Penta and Fenix are his favorite wrestlers. We were talking about the Penta/Black match tonight. He said he wants Black to win. I'm like, "What? I thought Penta was your favorite?" He says he wants him to lose because he doesn't want him to get beat up by Miro. "Miro is the toughest wrestler" according to him.

  18. This thread is why people discussing ratings for any promotion make me roll my eyes. Ratings are low? THIS IS WHY PEOPLE SHOULD DO THINGS EXACTLY THE WAY I DEMAND AND I AM RIGHT AND et cetera et cetera et cetera Ratings are high? THIS IS WHAT THE PEOPLE DEMAND AND OBVIOUSLY THEY NEED MORE OF THIS AND I AM RIGHT AND et cetera et cetera et cetera Viewing trends and outside circumstances and +7 numbers are never factored in, it's always break out the jump to conclusions mat and screech about your agendas and I'm just like "y'all it's not that serious, if you liked the show then you liked it and if you didn't you didn't".

  24. Went to my first local show in like 5 years last night. Double ring, cage, War Games seemed enough for me to do the 2hr round trip. They did an angle where the 2nd entrant for the babyface team no showed, which logically made no sense, rather than just the other 3 people on his team going in ahead of him, so rather than the logical 3 on 1 and 4 on 2 beat downs that happen. The main babyface just no sells everything and keeps running through spots. Then the guy who originally didn't come out at #2, turns up for the other team, leading to the face team having a surprise 5th guy to replace the heel turn, some guy who came into the ring with 4 ring crew guys entering the cage to hold the extension cable for the weed whacker he ended up using on his own guy. Then the main babyface injured the female entrant on the heel team by putting her through 2 tables, and even though she'd clearly busted her shoulder, they were telling her to get up and do her top of cage dive on to everyone, and hurt herself more, so while they're putting a neck brace on her in the ring, they're still doing dangerous death match spots around her, rather than selling the exhaustion of the match, or boot choking in the corner. Then half the locker room randomly emptied into one spot outside the cage to catch a guy who fell off, like 3 mins before the spot happens. It's that big a cluster fuck that the 5'6 owner of the promotion coming in second last for the face team and cleaning house against the entire heel side all with weapons doesn't even register. And of course the cage fell apart. That was enough for me, I headed for the carpark before the finish.

  25. I hope tonight's Vince segment is ludicrously tasteless. I hope he gives a coked-out, completely kayfabe promo where he yells about his penis and little else. I hope they show footage of every tasteless Attitude Era angle, every tongue-wagging sexist interaction with talent, the n-bomb, putting himself over God, the Steroid Trial, everything. An unending Who-Blew-The-Whistle? angle involving every on-screen talent. I hope he gets storyline shot by a sniper like in that Great Sasuke commercial tape and the whole night is run as a tribute show while his corpse lies in the middle of the ring and everybody has to wrestle around it. If this is truly the end of the Vince McMahon character, I want him to die as he lived. As a leviathan of entertainment, sinking to the bottom of an ocean of ignorance.

  26. I don't think it needs to be said here but Sasha Banks is an incredible worker and historically important. I think she was the first of The Four Horsewomen to really break out in-ring and make everyone realize something very special was happening. They had started to nail the character part of the equation with Summer Rae and the BFFs and Bayley. Paige and Emma were both really good. But Sasha's in-ring work was just a next level beyond what Paige and Emma were doing, along with having an awesome character as The Boss. I think a lot of us forgot just how good the match with Becky Lynch was at whatever big NXT event that was. That was the first time Becky stood out personality wise although her ring work was solid. I'll also gladly take (and even make) the argument that Sasha's two classics with Bayley were the best matches in NXT history. On top of the work being stellar, they were historically important. You don't get to women main eventing WM without those two matches happening first. There was just so much great work she's done on the main roster. I can't even remember it all. There was the iconic moment when she Eddie Guerrero'd Dana Brooks out of a match with Charlotte, beating Charlotte in a classic Last Woman Standing match via a Banks Statement through the railing, all her recent stuff with Bianca (a made woman because of Sasha), etc. And Sasha and Bayley straight-up carried the promotion during the pandemic with their awesome two-woman power trip and then eventual breakup. No matter if her getting released or still being buried is true -- Sasha Banks is a Legit Boss and on the short list of most important wrestlers of the century. That's not hyperbole.

  27. Jake Hagar is secretly great. He brings some hurty looking offense for our imperiled face to go through. He also has the largest teeth in all of pro wrestling. Jake Hagar is the Freddie Mercury of AEW- teeth-wise. This is an old school match. Hagar beats on Eddie Kingston, the crowd gets behind Kingston, Kingston fires back, Hagar cuts him off. Eddie Kingston IS Tracy Smothers. Kingston then goes all Kings Road with chops and the Kobashi chop to the side of the head. Hagar cuts off Kingston with a Released German Suplex Variation. Kingston keeps going for the Exploider but Hagar keeps countering out of it. Hagar counters Kingston's chops with punches! Jake Hagar IS Dick Murdoch. THIRD Exploider attempt. And he hits it! And then a Backdrop Driver for two. Kingston tries a Urican but Hagar counters away from it. Eddie counters a corner ten count punch with a Powerbomb and then hits TWO Uricans for the win. Jake Hagar is fucking awesome. Eddie Kingston is TOTALLY FUCKING AWESOME. Satnam Singh! Jay Lethal is in this match for some reason. Impressive cross body! Satnam does the Sycho Sid Spinning Powerbomb! They should get some other 7 foot tall Dallas Maverick and redo the Skyscrapers! Red Velvet! Versus the Big Head Girl From Outer Space! JESUS! Let's hear it for Red Velvet for taking that Powerslam onto the floor. Kris Statlander IS Big Van Vader. Velvet has Kiera Hogan hair. Actually, current Statlander reminds me of that two month period when Cornette was managing Davey Boy Smith and it looked like they were going to put THE STRAP on him. She's looking inevitable. GREAT Triple Rotation OHTANI Rotation Pwerbomb by Stat. Great Roll through to a German and a Fisherman Buster INVERTED POWERBOMB! Red Velvet, who I THINK is having the best match I've seen her in, gets in a flurry of offense before getting slaughtered by Stat's finisher. After the match, THE BADDIES ATTACK! Anna Jay gets beaten down! ATHENA RUNS TO THE RING BUT A CLOT OF REFEREES CATCH HER IN MIDAIR! YAAAY! THE BADDIES RULE! Red Velvet looked great selling the ass beating from Statlander. Statlander needs to take the belt off Thunder Rosa and wrestle Toni Storm. Ethan Page is great trying to convince himself that he isn't going to get the fuck beaten out of him by Miro. Will Os[reay DOES have hilarious hair but I dig his coat. FTR! FTR! FTR! Ooooh man, FTR vs AUSSIE OPEN are sooo going to be a good enough reason to get the PPV. They appease Cornette by doing a really cool lock up. Ooooh Man, Aussie Open are sooo fucking awesome. I await tomorrow's Internation Feed to see all the cool shit they did in Picture in Picture. Dax makes the hot tag and is a one man WRECKING CREW. Then a ZILLION THINGS HAPPEN and it is AWESOME. TRENT GETS THE PIN! That was a surprising finish. Aussie Open are fucking AWESOME. FTR are fucking AWESOME. AEW RULES THE FUCKING MOTHERFUCKING WORLD.

  29. OK, this is going to be a pretty ambitious post. It is entirely inspired by @JLowe promising to be "less of a dick" about Marina Shafir and @just drew responding that he is going to try and do the same and asking to be held accountable for it. Actual quotes: "I'm going to stop being such a dick about things, including Shafir. Life's too short and the world is already fucked enough" - JLowe "Keep me accountable. I’m gonna try that too." - just drew By coincidence, I have been re-reading The Willpower Instinct, a really excellent self-help book by Kelly McGonigal Ph.D. I was really surprised, on the re-read, to see that Dr. McGonigal lists complaining among the bad habits that people want to control (among other things like eating too many cookies, putting off what needs to be done, or cheating on their spouse). But, yeah, of course. She explains, backed by psychology, neuroscience, and practical experience, some methods of changing those behaviours that genuinely work. it's an oversimplification, but basically she identifies three kinds of willpower: The "won't" power, which enables you to stop doing things you don't want to (or shouldn't) do, the "will" power which enables you to do the useful things you tend to put off or avoid, and the "want" power which reminds you what your long-term goal is so you can keep moving toward it. focus on the "want" helps us control the "will" and "won't" stuff. Since October, I have lost 20 kilos. I was pre-diabetic, had gout, and had lots of minor health issues, aches, and pains. That's a lie. I had full blown type 2 diabetes. The kind that's caused by eating and drinking too much and not exercising enough. I was too shocked and ashamed to admit it. There were more than a few books and videos and people, including @Shartnado, who inspired, encouraged, and influenced me. Dr. McGonigal's book provided the key. My "want" was to have my doctor tell me I didn't need to take diabetes medication any more. Also, I wanted to feel better, move better, and look better. My "won't" list included buying chips and ice cream, ordering pizza and burgers for delivery, drinking sugary drinks, and so on. My "wills" included moving more (going for long walks), getting to the gym regularly, eating lots of vegetables and fruit, getting 150+ grams of protein and 25+ grams of fibre (from food) every day, and so on. And to count my calories. Every day. And I f'n did it. Doc told me on Monday I can stop taking the pills now and we'll see how my blood work holds up. It's a gross oversimplification, but the key is breathing. The prefrontal cortex enables us to control our behaviour and breath focus meditation strengthens our prefrontal cortex. There are endless videos on YouTube etc that teach basic breath focus meditation. Basically just breathe and focus on the breath and if your mind wanders just bring it back. It's the wandering and coming back into focus that is the process. Not the breathing. Personally, I have been using the Wim Hoff method for my breath work, because I enjoy it. Followed this video daily for a couple of weeks until I got it down. Now I can do it anywhere anytime. A practice like this really does strengthen your self-control. It's f'n amazing how well it works. Also, taking a few deep breaths and remembering our larger goal can be extremely useful when we feel tempted to do something we are trying not to do, whether that is eat a bag of Doritos or make a joke about Adam Cole's biceps. Not to put to fine a point on it, but my "want" is to enjoy watching and discussing wrestling (and listening to music and playing games) in my somewhat limited free time, so my "will" is to watch, discuss (play, listen to) the stuff I really enjoy (and there is a lot of it) and my "won't" is to waste too much energy bitching about all the other crap out there even though it's fun to complain sometimes. That's a legit thing I did, to help me stop being such a grouchy 'grandpa' about everything. That. And, just breathe. Obviously, there is way more to it. The whole book is easy to read and very well worth it. Here's a good summary: https://www.naveedjan.com/notes/the-willpower-instinct The Power of Habit and Atomic Habits are also well worth reading. Adding more positive habits and removing some negative habits is probably the easiest and most efficient way to change your life for the better. An interesting bit from Atomic Habits is that if you improve something by 1% a day, in a year you'll be 37 times better at it.

  31. Chris Jericho is gonna lose his hair! He is so hardcore. Jericho ALMOST does the Greg Valentine Forward Fall! Suplex of Ortiz from the apron to the floor! During picture in picture, the JAS beats on Ortiz on the floor! Yes, they are cheaters! This match is good. Santana and Wheeler Yuta come to fight at ringside! EDDIE KINGSTON HITS A URICAN! FOR TWO! WHAT THE FUCK! FUEGO DEL SOL TURNS EVIL! ORTIZ IS PINNED! IT'S SAMMY GUEVARA NOT FUEGO DEL SOL! THAT was FUN! BLOOD AND GUTS! BLOOD AND GUTS! Awesome. Wardlow channels Vince McMahon and uses Powerbombs like NDAs! COME ON, WARDLOW! HE'S GOT A NECKBRACE ON! Poor Smark Mark Sterling. DAX HARWOOD! WILL OSPREAY! St Louis is MOLTEN. DAX is sooo fucking great. He is so the new Arn Anderson. OSPREAY JUMPS INTO THE CAMERA FRAME IN A PREPOSTEROUS DROP KICK FROM 90 YARDS AWAY! Oh my God, I can't wait to see this on the INTERNATIONAL FEED tomorrow. Great counter of a hiptoss into an Octopus Hold by Ospreay! Five German Suplexes by DAX! Totally gnarley Released German Suplex! Dax misses a Cross Body Thing to get Ospreay on offense! This match is fucking great. So many great nearfalls. Great fucking Lariat by Dax! Ospreay hits a great Lyger Bomb and hits a Cutter and then hits his finisher for the win! What a great fucking match. Soooo Orange Cassidy versus Will Ospreay? Why Not? Jon Moxley is ON THE STICK! They set up two more matches! They almost got me if they would just announce Danielson vs Zack Sable Jr or Aussie Open vs FTR. Oh no! Poor Ethan Page! Page channels Larry Zbysko! Page then channels Ted DiBiase! Miro channels MIRO and starts beating the fuck out of Ethan Page! In picture in picture Lambert does SOMETHING to help PAge and then Miro chases Lambert and Page hits a Shoulder Block off the apron! This match is great Page keeps working the shoulder of Miro to keep Miro off of him. Page hits a toprope shoulder block! Ethan Page IS Road Warrior Hawk! PAge then pisses off Miro and he lands real awkward on his neck. Miro breaks Pages back! That was great! Dante Martin is now an Inhuman? Dante Martin IS Black Bolt! Toni Storm versus DMD! Storm gets posted! WE WANT BLOOD! Brittney gets in a wad of offense while we are in picture in picture. Baker look great in the tiny screen, hitting two suplexes. As the picture gets big, Toni Storm goes on offense. FLYING HIP ATTACK! Britt Baker does total heel move of faking an injury! Storm counters Bakers attempt at the Mandible Claw and hits a German and the STORM ZERO! BAKER PUTS STORM OVER CLEAN AS A SHEET! Put the belt on Storm already. Stokely Hathaway! WILMA! Jay White versus Adam Cole would be good. Jay White vs Hangman Adam Page would be good. Jay White versus NICK COMOROTO! I assume the Young Bucks get the belts. Jungle Boy channels Sammy Guevara! Matt Jackson with the Locomotion Suplexes to the ladder was great. Everybody goes through a table! The Young Bucks are so made for the main events of US wrestling programs. I love that the Young Bucks use the picture in picture to stack a few tables. More people go through tables! The four table configuration is the KEY to the match! Ah Luchasaurus crushes three of the four tables! V TRIGGER! And we have NEW CHAMPIONS! It's about time. I assume the Jungle Boy singles run begins. AS CHRISTIAN ATTACKS JUNGLE BOY IN FRONT OF HIS MOTHER AND SISTER! YES! EVIL CHRISTIAN IS THE BEST CHRISTIAN! That was some quality wrestling tonight. AEW RULES THE MOTHERFUCKING WORLD!

  33. My whistleblower dark horse; Conrad Thompson. He’s gotta still be mad about Vince cancelling Undertaker’s Starrcast appearance. CT don’t play around. Ric Flair couldn’t pay his mortgage, so Connie took possession of his daughter. I refuse to believe any other explanation of that unholy union. Vince fucked with CT’s money, so Con fired up the laptop and started sending emails sponsored by bluechew…

  34. Good Lord Dynamite is LOADED this week. Bucks vs JX ladder match, Britt vs Storm, Page vs Miro Atlantic qualifier, Dax vs Ospreay (!!!), Jericho vs Ortiz hair match, Wardlow vs 20 Plaintiffs. But that's not what we are here to talk about. We are here to talk about Konosuke Takashita's infatuation with and interest in cinnamon rolls, high end burger chains, and now fish sandwiches. I think I have some insight into this! I considered going on about it in the Navel Gazing or Food threads... But: there is a massive general cultural obsession in Japan with local special foods. It's by no means unique to Japan but I'm willing to argue that it's more advanced, developed, and widespread here than anywhere else in the world. Kind of like how if you go to Philadelphia you should probably eat a cheesesteak and if you are in Cincinnati you might as well get a plate of Skyline chili... There is a particular neighbourhood in Osaka where I go to eat kushikatsu with Kuuga and our many mutual friends. People come to Osaka specifically and entirely to eat kushikatsu, okonomiyaki,and takoyaki. I have, more than once,travelled to Nagoya just to eat tebasaki and miso katsu. There are other special foods in Nagoya, but I have not tried them because I am in Nagoya to overconsume my two favourites and eating an eel box or flat noodles in deep brown miso would interfere with that goal. Any time my wife and I discuss travel plans, the special local food and drink is the primary concern. Sightseeing and so on is to kill time between meals. That is in no way unusual here. It's part of the culture in Japan. A big, important,thoroughly enjoyable part of the culture. Meibutsu culture So, of course Takeshita wants to eat all the foods in America that you can't get in Japan. And of course if fish sandwiches are a special local food in Florida,he would like to go to Florida to eat one (or more). Thank you for coming to my Ted talk. If you'd like to derail this thread by bringing up more examples of special local food from around the world, that would be delightful.

  35. Y'all, could we maybe have more than one week's worth of shows before we write off Wardlow as a failure? I get that some expect instant gratification from our payoffs to a two year storyline but like... it's been a week's worth of shows. Maybe wait six months before you decide he's Virgil mark 2.

  36. I posted in one of the monthly threads that my great-aunt would always chastise 6 year old me and my uncle (who's really closer to being a cousin to me as he's not much older) for rooting for the "dirty men" like Ric Flair and Tully Blanchard and wondered why couldn't we just root for the clean men like Wahoo and Dusty? In this thread, we celebrate the dirty men of wrestling and their dirty deeds!

  37. Are we willing things into existence for Dynamite/Rampage this week? I'm not after much: Just a Jayme Hayter match please. I'll take a tag with Britt if I have to but Jayme just clubbering someone would be appreciated. Also more Danhausen. My wife loves this guy. We got some new pillows (those kick ass memory cushion things) and when I told her they were "very nice" she said: "Yes. Very nice... Very eeeevil... Pillowhausen." That's when I died.

  38. So I’m getting this show because fuck this week. I’m at a child’s birthday party at a black light mini golf place at 10:00 am. My wife forgot to tell me my daughter was invited to the party until 9:32 am, so as a make good she’s keeping the kids busy tonight while I veg out in front of the 75 incher. I’m very annoyed being here right now, but if I wasn’t I would have never seen this enormous piece of black light art depicting Tony Chimel doing ring intros for a match between Buddy Rogers and Ali.

  41. I feel like this review is going to either disappoint or surprise a lot of people: The Jericho/Ortiz thing was fine. There was wayyy more JAS on this show than we probably needed. I do understand that there is a lot to set up for Forbidden Door, but sending Jericho back out didn't make a lot of sense to me. The Sammy Guevara reveal makes sense, since a) his TNT Title run was a disaster and he needs a reset and 2) With Wheeler Yuta being back, it makes the sides even again. You could do "the Biggest Blood and Guts match EVER!!!" and run six per side. I'll watch Wardlow beat up goofs for weeks. Next week let him get thirty. Then forty. Shit, let him go all the way to 100. Just stop letting him say so much. He needs a vet to come in and talk for him. I'd never seen Will Ospreay wrestle before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Despite looking like the third Paul brother, I was pleasantly surprised. Jon Moxley is my wrestler of the year. He's had nothing but bangers since he cleaned up. But Dax Harwood deserves some mention, too. He is having great bouts with all types of workers and really raising his profile as a singles wrestler. Miro/Ethan Page was cool. They should do more with Ethan Page down the line. Either build a division around him in ROH or have him win the All Atlantic Title from whoever wins the four way somewhere down the line. Miro is all the goods. If you insist that Kyle O Reilly must speak on television, that's the way to do it. I'm not sure why we're all wanting Darby to break Bobby Fish's leg. He's so ridden with osteoporosis that it probably won't take much. Moxley is, with the possible exception of Eddie Kingston, the best promo in wrestling right now. He's so, so good. JAS reappearing didn't make a ton of sense, and I wonder if some of the NJPW guys couldn't make it tonight so they had to audible. Toni Storm is really, really good. I guess I hadn't noticed how fluid and polished she comes off before. I'm still a little surprised Britt did a clean job. That match with Rosa at Forbidden Door will fornicate. Adam Page was having a perfectly good promo until Adam Cole interrupted with his "eighth grader playing a grown up in the school play" voice. It was very funny to me that even Cole's best friend knows it's not a good idea to have him in a title match. I don't know much about Jay White, but I'll check that out. Now to the part that I'm sure will surprise folks; I kinda liked that main event. I know, I know. Look, I wish it was any other team on the roster that had been picked to dethrone Jurassic Express, but I get it. It sets up FTR/YB 3 for like 3 different world tag team titles. That will rule. I was pleasantly surprised by how little of the Jacksons usual self-aggrandizing bullshit was in this match. They laid their shit in, sold, and cut down on the convoluted spots. I'm man enough to give credit where it's due; that was an entertaining tag match. What will be the test for me is if the Jacksons do business at All Out and drop those titles to FTR, or if they manage to politic their way into another interminable, endless, soul-sucking reign as tag champs. But for tonight, and maybe tonight only, the Jacksons are ok in my book. The post match angle was perfect. I might've had Christian actually cost JE the match, but other than that it played exactly the way it needed to. Looking forward to seeing what's next.

I'll never forget the story Eddie told on Marty and Sarah Love Wrestling where, as a youngster, Eddie had a confrontation and bowed up to his mom, and his dad grabbed him and faced him down, yelling "REMEMBAH! SHE WAS MY WIFE BEFORE SHE WAS YOUR MUTHA!" Such an Eddie story. It's up there with the wholesome story he told where if he was good all week and didn't get in fights or suplex kids in class, his mom would get him Chinese food and let him watch All Japan tapes. His dad would be like "I'm tryna watch the news here and the kid's watchin rasslin!" and his mom would yell "LEAVE HIM ALONE HE WAS GOOD THIS WEEK!!!!" Fuck, Eddie Kingston is a treasure. Put the main belt on him for a year.

  44. We should get a vignette where Matt is wearing a suit and napping in the locker room. He is awakened by Private Party, Butcher, Blade, and Bunny, and he explains that he had the weirdest dream about the HFO being taken over by Andrade Cien Almas and then Bother Nero came back and did a bunch of dumb shit. Then he looks at the camera and winks. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.
