  1. So many anti-Gage marks triggered by his existence, the very idea of him popping a rating, and finally him actually popping a rating.

  2. I mean if people dislike that style fine, but what bothers me is they advertised Nick Gage the week before on Dynamite with him holding a pizza cutter. The match STARTS with him using the pizza cutter. People had two “maybe this isn’t for you” moments to latch onto… and decided to watch it anywhere just to complain about it. Just don’t watch the match if it’s that offensive to you. Watching it knowing you’ll hate it is the smuggest, most pathetic entitlement I’ve seen in ages. And it’ll be an excellent part of the MJF vs Jericho promo package. Incidentally, I loved it. Right down to Gage losing to the Judas Effect, which is perfect; really puts over it as a super finisher, as Gage can take a glass table bump, light tubes etc, but Jericho’s finishing move is so damn effective it’s a match ended against anyone. Brilliant storytelling. Also, man oh man is the “lol Hangman is done” rhetoric the worst. Not that they are definitely doing the match, but AEW has so many ways they can still do it. Gauntlet match, battle royal, Hangman putting his career on the line. But ”smart” fans are angry they’re being worked, the fucking losers. The entire point of this shit IS to make the audience feel emotions. You’re meant to be annoyed that Hangman lost. Jesus Christ…

  3. The big mistake was not having the Wyatt Family take over WWE from the Authority somehow. I mean it probably would have been Steph possessed by Sister Abagail but …

  7. Tipsy so I hope I type this well. Was at a bar with my brother and I was explaining the Nick Cage-Dominos commercial situation and a guy next to us was a wrestling fan. So we said MDK a lot and talked a bit about Adam Page. Lol. Good night.

  10. Bray rules. Best gimmick of the past decade. One of the best mic-workers and one of the most creative people, too. He was in the best match the WWE has maybe ever had (Vs. The Shield), had Daniel Bryan’s best match during the YES! Movement run (Royal Rumble), was the foil Bryan’s biggest pop, was one of the first reasons anyone went out of the way to watch NXT and more. I have little interest in seeing CM Punk or Daniel Bryan or Chris Jericho in AEW. Those guys had their visions in WWE executed for long periods of time and we saw what they were able to do. But we never saw a fully actualalized version of Bray. That I want to see.

  11. I wouldn't mind Bray returning to his Cape Fear persona. Shit, stick HIM with the Butcher and the Blade and finally introduce trios titles.

  12. Bring in Brion Milonas and the Beer City Bruiser then? I always thought "Windham Rotunda" was a weird name, because those are two weird names and they're both last names as well; never liked people having two first names or two last names. Like, is his middle name his mother's maiden last name? You could pay me to go see WWE, sure. But unless you had a card with a WALTER vs. Timothy Thatcher main, Drew Gulak going broadway against somebody, a legit bloodfeast with somebody who could pull it off, brought back Lesnar to kill most of the roster, and Asuka vs. Shayna, then I wouldn't pay. Free bar included plus a limo to and from the venue.

  13. There isn't a person I would pay to see in WWE. They've ruined everyone. Plus, paying to see that one person means sitting through 2 to 4 hours of pure shit.

  16. You have to be Samoan and related to the Rock to not be released in the WWE. You can have multiple DUI's, fail some drug tests, but you will be fine. Part of me thinks they will do the same they did with Vega and try to bring him back for less $$. They have to see all the negative posts on social media. Imagine if Raw gets hijacked by "Fuck Nick Khan" or "we want bray" chants.

  19. My take re:Gage is if you didn't watch or attend scuzzy post-ECW Mid Atlantic indies then what the fuck do you even like about wrestling

  20. It was an excellent show with the top 3 matches (Utami/Maika, Momo/Mayu and Syuri/Saya) more than delivering. Everything was given enough time while at the same time, having the 20 min time limit kept the top matches from dragging too much.

  23. The people who think this release is expected only remembers Bray as the Fiend and not as well Bray But he was always made to look like nothing at WrestleMania and people stopped caring. But his FCW/NXT and first 2 or 3 years of Wyatt Family was damn good stuff

  24. Same vein as people running someone down who actually recovered from their dark period in life to continually label them a drug addict.

  27. Zverev gets the fourth Gold for Team Germany. Aline Rotter-Focken is not only a beautiful lady, she is a fantastic wrestler and will face USA's Adeline Gray in the Gold Medal Match which will be the final bout of her career. Fantastic display of skill. It's also a historic first Olympic medal in women's wrestling for Germany.

  28. I feel like in this paragraph you put in more thought about historical logic about a character than WWE "creative" has done in the past 15 years.

  30. Oh man, that would be a spectacle. No wonder the crowd chanted "Holy shit!" after The Fiend's entrance. On the subject of Bray Wyatt and John Cena, Bray Wyatt really should have gone over at WrestleMania XXX years earlier.

  31. Feel for his teammate missing out on playing for a Bronze medal. I'm no Djokovic fan as you'll gather for how he is on and off court. I can recognise Novak's accomplishments, he's one of the best to ever do it and he's tied with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on 20 Grand Slams. I wouldn't wish injury on anyone. In sport, you have your favourites and those you don't want to win.

  34. Everyone will want to fantasy book with Dark Order in mind but first we need to see where he's at mentally. One thing you can say is he knows how to move merchandise. Tony would consider him just based on that alone..

  35. It's really fucked up to see people in this industry - one that we all enjoy in some form - lose their job and some folks online have the nerve to say shit like, "I hope (insert promotion) doesn't sign them." Maybe take a second and reflect before posting that kind of shit.

  36. Anyone else rolling their eyes at the photo they used? Bray from years ago when he looked much worse physically. Just a petty shot on the way from my perspective. Man you gotta feel for the guy. Hope this is part of what he actually wanted for his own mental health well being, and not something forced upon him.

  38. Thank you, @AxB and @NikoBaltimore. It's cool seeing the respect and love Bret Hart and The Rock always have for one another. First noticed it in Bret's Hitman autobiography.

  40. That doesn't make sense when those two are more over than he is, so it was a bad idea. They had Luger, Bulldog, and Owen. Turn the former two, who are aimless, and give the latter a spot feud that Nash decisively wins. They even had Jarrett, who would have been fine as a one-or-two month guy who had no chance of winning, but who could fit in for a feud. They did run Diesel/Bulldog on IYH 4, to be fair, and Nash/Michaels vs. Yoko/Owen on IYH 3. They started to get some decent challengers for the guy right at the end of his reign. They needed to turn Bulldog way quicker than they did. That Diesel/Sid feud ran too long, over three major shows. I love Mr. Backlund, but I'd probably just run Owen/Bret one more time at Survivor Series and have Bulldog turn and help Owen screw Bret over to win the gold, then have Owen drop it to Nash at the Rumble and go into an XI feud with Bret to finally blow that feud off a year-plus after it started. Even if you argue there's just too much fatigue in that feud, it's still better than what they came up with. Owen and Yoko can always take the belts off the Gunns some other time. Then, you can run Nash/Bulldog and Nash/Luger in whichever order you choose, maybe bring Sid in for a one-off on a single PPV like you'd bring in a long reliever for a spot start every once in awhile to keep the rest of the starting pitchers on your softball team fresh. Maybe you do the Luger and Sid feuds to get to KotR, have Bulldog win the tournament, and go into Summerslam running that match. You can run Nash/Jarrett with the Roadie doing henchman work to make it seem like Jarrett might steal one. Then, you can put the gold on Bret as it happened at Survivor Series and start that Diesel heel turn. I agree with your argument that the roster is thin, but Owen/Bulldog/Luger/Jarrett/Sid (for a month) is a much better lineup of heels than King Mabel/Sid (for multiple months)/Bulldog. Also, I got Owen a two-month WWF Championship reign in the bargain, so obviously my booking is superior.
