  1. Respect. I think Ali did the same last time as well.

  2. I think about this a lot and how it flies in the face of how WWE does things. A generational talent could get signed tomorrow and he/she would spend the next 6 months to a year sitting in developmental waiting to debut on NXT. Then the next 1-2 years in NXT waiting to get the call. If the fans take to him/her add a year so NXT has someone to headline Takeovers. When they do move up to the main roster, unless the office sees you as a top talent you're lucky to get stuck in 50/50 midcard hell. It's a process that is pointless and actually hurts the chances that the generational talent will ever become anything. Meanwhile, AEW comes out of the gate with a Darby Allin type and with a simple message; he's young, he's exciting, and you should care about him. He jumped through 3 years of b.s. and if by unlikely chance he is that generational talent he has the opportunity to get noticed as one.

  10. Gauntlet was decent fun, good win for Eddie and I'm glad Sabu still made the card. Taya/Tenille was pretty good though maybe not hitting the great I hoped for. I've loved Taya's reign so I'm glad for it to continue. I believe Tenille was only signed through this show but I hope she sticks around. RVD's turn was shocking, definitely never saw that coming but certainly something different to perhaps freshen him up, could be interesting. Though I liked RVD & Rhino a lot as a team. Elgin/Marufuji was pretty awesome, fitting super finish. Absolutely shocked that Tessa didn't win the X title, thought she was a lock to win it. Great spotfest ladder match there. Moose/Shamrock was a fun brawl, Shamrock looked awesome but the finish wasn't the best. Main event was a war. Kind of surprised Cage retained as I thought it was gonna be Sami's time but at the same time, Cage's reign feels like it barely got going because of the injury time so looking forward to where it goes. Gonna have to kill Cage to beat him after popping up from the Piledriver on tacks. I dig "Hard to Kill" as the next PPV. Eddie had that on his shirt tonight so thought maybe it'd be him and Sami again but I guess Eddie/Ace continues over the X title now. Good show overall. Full results:

  18. I want a He-Man style cartoon starring Roman Reigns. So many villains from today and yesteryear in the WWE Universe he can battle. Also, a show like Ed, Edd, and Eddy starring The New Day. All the funny characters that appear on UUDD could be kid versions of themselves. Alexa Bliss, Samoa Joe, Sasha, Ember Moon, etc.

  19. Putting aside "push the stars" and "scale back" type massive overhauls; I think the biggest thing WWE could do is just change their presentation on TV. I compare it to the difference between something like the fights in the Bourne Trilogy to what we see in stuff like Hero or Fearless with Jet Li. Heck, even the John Wick fight scenes. Pull the camera back and stop cutting the angles on every impact. Next, change up the format. I posted way back when they announced Cena v Nakamura that it was an awesome chance to do something radically different. Start that match at the end of hour one. It looks like the top of the hour "main event" before announced Women's title match and a tag match between say New Day vs Orton/Revival. They come out of the gates red hot and hit the first break as normal. During the next segment Cena misses a shoulder charge on the outside and crashes into the announce table. "We will take a break while docs check on his injury" Back and Cena has been given the all clear to keep going. Due to the length of this match the 6 man tag has been postponed until next week. 40 mins in and we hit our final break of the evening. We come back and the Women's title match has been pushed back also. We get a camera in the corner with Bayle's reaction to being pushed back to next week. Cena goes for the AA but his shoulder gives. He never hits it and Nakamura gets the win with about 10-15 mins of TV time left. Get an interviewer in the ring asking Nakamura what it means to beat a legend like Cena in their first match. Ask Cena about his shoulder and if he is going to ask for an immediate rematch. This whole thing uses about an hour of TV time, gets both guys over as super tough, and also has people ready for next week because anything can happen. Then take advantage of that. The following week opens backstage a brawl between the 6 man tag match that was meant to open the show. End it with Orton hitting a Punt on Kofi and now we have a story of New Day trying to find a replacement. People who don't like Orton could make their pitch. Ali can talk about how Kofi's run started when Ali got hurt. Now it's Ali's turn to fill that spot and get some justice. Shades of grey and a revamped format. They are way too comfortable with what they do and it's worn out a huge part of their audience.

  21. Good on him. While I totally get why guys like Bryan would refuse to go based on their personal beliefs (and I have no argument with that either), this seems a more productive way to do it.

  23. How to get back to 1998 or 1985: find a Steve Austin or Hulk Hogan. That's it, that's the whole game. When you have the guy at the top that draws new viewers, and is red hot, everything gets hot. The longer time goes, the more convinced I get that you can't book a company to a boom, you just need that guy. And WWE is specifically set up to not let anyone become bigger than the company ever again. 1999 might be the single worst booked year in WWF history, and it didn't matter because Austin and then The Rock drew people. This year is giving it a serious run for worst booked, and it matters because, I mean, Seth Rollins is no major star whether or not you like him.

  28. He's an idiot with four great creative/business ideas that he rode to a billion dollars and the opportunity to become too big to fail. I'm not trying to underrate the stuff he's done that's been creatively great, but for the most part, he's extremely lucky. He was lucky that most of his competitors were run by people who just weren't business-savvy. He's lucky that any competitors that might have become a threat were felled by outside forces (like Mid-South trying to expand right at the time the oil market exploded). He's lucky that the U.S. Attorney's Office that tried him made a number of mistakes in arguing its case and that he was able to avoid prison. Most of all, he's lucky that he's got a poor product with steadily falling ratings that has value precisely because it is a live product and the networks really want live products that can't be DVR'ed and that have built-in audiences, no matter how dwindling. But make no mistake; he's a stubborn moron. See trying to launch the XFL after it had already failed once and been branded a joke because he thought there was a market in Colin Kaepernick-hating football fans who would watch third-rate football talent play mediocre games instead of the NFL. Or see anything he's had direct control over since about 2005. This dude actually kinda sucks; it's just that putting major shows on PPV, Hogan, The Rock, and Austin vs. McMahon were really fucking genius. If he'd retired in 2002, he'd be basically the Harper Lee of pro wrestling: remembered as great for a very low number of actual great ideas/works.

  38. Incredible film. Beautifully shot and Phoenix's performance was otherworldly. Controversy was overblown. There's a problem with gun violence and mental health in this country and Joker explored those and dealt with a lot of tough issues in society. I can see why it's already off to a great start at the box office.
