    "Yet, thanks to my trusty safetysphere, I sublibed with only tribial brain dablage." One of my favorite Futurama lines isn't quite as funny anymore. So over the past year or so, I've been suffering from bouts of anxiety and depression, coming in and out in waves. Issues with work and home life have contributed but it was definitely something out of the norm. After urging from my wife and doctor, I visited the Amen Clinics in Bellevue this week to get treated for my ongoing ADHD issues and to get SPECT scans of my brain. What we found was far worse. What you see in this scan is multiple, cumulative TBIs (traumatic brain injuries) in my brain, clustered in the occipital and frontal lobes, but in multiple locations. Two scans were taken - this one, after I had engaged in mental activity, and one at rest. (The one at rest looks even worse.) In short, the bumps and head shots I took through my wrestling career have led to brain damage, and are the probable cause of my anxiety and depression. Most of the damage is to the back of the brain, which makes sense, as that's what would be impacted by standard bumps. There are a few in other places, and nearly all of them I can directly attribute to individual shots over the years. One was hard enough that it not only caused damage on the impact point, but on the other side as well, meaning my brain actually bounced - that was from a superkick by Scotty Mac in ECCW. (I did a promo line back then that I felt my brain actually bounce in my head. Guess I wasn't imagining it.) However, like I said on Twitter, data is beautiful and knowing is half the battle. Now that we know, I can be treated for it, and I began treatment this morning for all issues - I've started once again on Adderall to counter the ADHD symptoms, and on a low dose of Cymbalta to help with the anxiety and depression. Cymbalta also helps with issues with pain and neuropathy, which I've experienced in the past year due to possible degenerative disc issues in my neck, and a shoulder injury suffered in 2016. I will also be getting a volumetric MRI and a full spinal scan to help with those issues. But it scares me what kind of shape the brains of my friends that are/were full time wrestlers and take far stupider bumps than I ever did will be in at this point, or five/ten/twenty years from now. I was just a referee, manager and occasional wrestler, and I still ended up with noticeable, actionable damage. One thing is for sure - my wrestling career is definitely, definitively over. I may do commentary spots or appearances of that nature here and there as the itch strikes, but I will *never* take a bump of any kind ever again. This is my own decision, not the doctor's - I am medically disqualifying myself. Unlike Daniel Bryan, there will be no comeback, and honestly, I don't want one - pro wrestling in this area has changed to the point that I had already decided to walk away with my sanity, finances and health as intact as possible. This just makes it easier, in a way. But to make one thing perfectly clear: I don't blame pro wrestling for this whatsoever, in any way, shape or form. I knew what I was getting into, which is why I was careful about the bumps I did take (and the ones I *didn't*). I wouldn't change a thing and I don't regret any of it (well, maybe some of the people I associated with). You won't see me involved in a frivolous lawsuit blaming others for this. Hell, 99% of it was my idea to begin with. (I hate to pop everyone's bubble but nearly every fun angle, match and storyline I was part of was almost entirely my idea. Sadly, that includes the dumbass bumps, too.) I'd say this should serve as a cautionary tale, but it won't. The new guys never listen to those before them that tell them to take it easy, just like those that come after them won't listen to them either. But I know there's some current and aspiring wrestlers that might read this, so I'll just say - please be careful, and be smart. And if you start feeling "different", or especially if those around you notice something different, please, seek help. It's not there to judge you - it's there to help you get better. I should've gone to the Amen Clinics months ago - they have been fantastic and both the doctors and I are extremely optimistic of a significant, if not full recovery. I did more in my wrestling career than I ever would've dreamed possible. I had experiences I wouldn't trade for anything. It brought me out of my introverted shell and taught me so much, good and bad. Without it, I wouldn't have moved to Seattle, and I wouldn't have met the woman that would eventually become my wife and soulmate. I refereed a match with Kevin Nash in front of 1800 people, got punched by Ross Hart, booked guys like Christopher Daniels, Raven, Matt Borne and Fit Finlay for matches, was front and center in three fantastic stables and major angles, main evented in major matches, was carried out of a building kicking and screaming by a local women's tackle football team (Seattle Mystics represent), got to piss off more fans than I can count, main evented as a referee, a manager and a wrestler, transition for six months into a commentator, be the executive producer of a promotion and TV show in my own vision, had my own championship belts created (twice!) and even held two championships at the same time. And guess what? It was fun.

    I'm a not only a huge "fan" of the Viking Age, Viking metal, and old norse Literatur, I also picked up a Masters degree in Scandinavian Studies with my main Focus on Norse Studies. I met lots of Viking cosplayers, watched the Icelandic asatru movement closely (which is new Interpretation of the believe in Odin, Freyr, Thor etc) been to a lot of concerts and such. I can only speak for Germany and Scandinavia, but there is a big number of people with interest in Viking and norse subjects who belong to the political middle, or even left. However, until recently these groups didn't acknowledge the use of Norse imagery, Nordic Runes and such through Neo-Nazi groups and right extremists. Mostly because most of the interest was cultural and aesthetic, not political or to to claim any kind of suptemacy. It is over the last few years that said groups take a political stance against right extremism. Plus, as RAF said above, the period of 1933 - 1945 has tainted quite a lot of the imagery at least, especially runes and ornaments. I guess the point I'm trying to make - as I said, for Germany and Scandinavia at least - is that there is large "fanbase" for the Viking Age and Norse mythology aswell as literature and imagery who are just crazy geeks for a certain time period and cultural aesthetic. I don't know either Rowe or Logan as a person, but judging from the effort that was put into that Wedding, they are very serious Viking cosplayers. There is so much effort in clothing, colours etc. Not saying that rules out any possibility of them being supremacists, but the use of Viking and Norse imagery seems to be quite contextual. I apologize for the huge wall of text, but it is very rare that I encounter one of my true specialities outside of wrestling within the confines of this board. I felt the need to contribute. It angers and pains me that white supremacists, neo Nazis and crazy right wingers taint and try to take away Viking/Norse stuff. It's not the worst thing they have done and continue doing, but it still makes me mad.

    Well this is indeed exciting. How often does one turn on RAW and experience an elegant flight into the dapper world of a man for whom Ross racks do not exist. Batista, a chic loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the flashy, the fashionable, the fabulous, in a world of dungarees who operate beneath good taste, a world in which occasion-based sunglass tinting is seen as a luxury and not an absolute essential human right, only one thig can lift us above this nightmare sweatpant future, and that thing is...

    I should help out a little here with trans terminology because I think oversimplification might cause confusion. Transvestite is kind of/sort of a slur. It's really more outdated language that folks should try to avoid, similar to "transsexual". The reason for this is because of the word's link to something called "transvestic fetishism". One thing trans people get frequently accused of is using their gender/presentation as a means to trick people into having sex with them. Transvestic fetishism is the belief that someone's arousal is increased by wearing perceptibly feminine clothing. This is different from the disproven concept of autogynephilia, which is where it's believed that a trans woman transitions specifically because she's turned on by her own body. Needless to say, a significant majority of trans people aren't going to be terribly thrilled being compared to that. Hence why people have drifted away from using the word "transvestite" and have replaced it with "cross-dresser" for those who are cis men who occasionally wear feminine clothing but have no intention or desire to transition. It should also be noted that it's frequently trans women who are attacked with slurs, and people tend to forget trans men exist and are valid as well. Some words that are definite slurs for trans people (and again, most of these are related to trans women) are words like tranny, trap, ladyboy, he/she, shim, shemale, genderbender, dickgirl, and use of the pronoun "it". As you can see, a lot of those are horrifying. I wouldn't begrudge anyone for saying that transvestite is a slur when it's continued to be used against trans people who desire to transition away from their assigned gender at birth. And that's why I mentioned that gender and presentation are nuanced concepts that aren't necessarily easy to solve on a message board.

    We didn't get much Batista tonight. But when the POWER of BIG DAVE BATISTA has been invoked it doesn't take much. For you see...Dave Batista travels the highways and byways of the land on a never-ending mission: to right wrongs, to develop understanding, and to advocate for undersized narrow-cut suit coats and flat caps! In time of dire need, Big Dave has been granted the power by the Immortals to summon awesome forces at the utterance of a single phrase?

    In 1972, a crack fashion unit was sent to K-Mart by an off-the-rack court for a liesure suit they didn't wear. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security Caldor into the basement of a vintage clothing and lunchbox Emporium. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as trend-makers of fortune. If you have no sense of patterning, if the queer eye guys are on hiatus, and if you can find his office in front of that one brick wall, then maybe you can hire...

    Sid rules. Said it once, will say it again until all the motherfuckers understand. Any one of us could stab a coworker, and we'd get fired for it. Sid stabbed a coworker and got fired for it. Then they hired him back and made him world champion. Twice. While the guy he stabbed still worked for the company. All hail King Sid

    Linking out to Reddit for a special reason... My daughter is 9 now, but we've been fighting with her sensory processing disorder for years now. Since she was 2 probably. It's much better now, anyone not me or my wife would think she's normal, and while she isn't autistic or have severe challenges, it's still tough at times. Sounds, lights, and touches can feel more extreme to her than others, but having coping mechanisms and toys helps. Seeing this bag for kids like my daughter when she was younger than she is now, or for other kids with even more challenges brings a tear to my eye. This is awesome

    Just to add a few thoughts: I mostly watch WWE. I occasionally watch NJPW. I kept up with TNA/Impact in 2016 because of Broken Matt Hardy. I still follow their women's division and Killer Kross. I've peaked in on Joshi and MLW. I tried CMLL for a bit, but didn't get into it. Maybe I'll try again. I never watched WCW or ECW. I keep saying that I'm going to YT a bunch of older stuff, but haven't yet. Maybe one day. I'm not liked around here. Not with as much as I get crapped on by certain people and their friends. My being a fan is a bit weird, I think. I have a lot of gaps in what I know and would enjoy learning more from other fans. But I'm not friends with anyone away from the board. Frankly, several of you are mean and overly aggressive. Which wouldn't be so bad if the majority didn't seem to go along with the bad treatment. I don't post here as much as I did. I come back because I've been here for a while. Old habits, blah blah blah. But for a group that claims community, that's not true. It's no fun to give opinions and have those opinions mocked because some of you absolutely have called me a dumb-fuck sheep for not hating WWE. I'm not looking for sympathy. I have free will, I know when to sign out and not deal with the drama. But if you ever wonder why someone in a position like mine doesn't talk as much, there's often a good reason.

    At a sports bar watching the game. Lull in play. Guy notices my phone cover of a photo i took at Wrestlemania and starts asking me about the WWF when it was still good and what Rock and Austin were up to. Then "what about the hobo guy with the mask whod jack off into a sock and then shove the jizz sock down their throat? Is he still banned from tv?" Politely tell him that wasnt what he did, and start focusing on the tv praying the Texans make it interesting. Nope. He's brought up photos on his phone from when he first debuted of Taker foaming at the mouth after a beatdown as proof it happened back in the day but you cant do that on PG tv anymore. Its not even 11.30 in the morning here..

    A couple of weeks ago my therapist agreed that I could come off my anxiety and depression medications, and I've been weening off of them ever since. I just took the last reduced doses about an hour ago. The main reason I started taking them was because I had been trying to transition but kept hitting roadblocks. Losing jobs for being trans, being homeless for a time as a result, dealing with gatekeepers who blocked me from hormone replacement therapy because I didn't meet their exact definition of what a woman was, rejection from family and friends, all of that caused havoc to my mental state. Fortunately that all changed once I found a stable job that cared more about my work than my gender, as well as supportive friends to replace the friends and family who left my life, and was able to start HRT a few years ago. That stability and acceptance made it easier for me to reduce and eventually eliminate those medications. So, all in all, I feel pretty good. It was a bit of a journey but I'm glad about where and how I ended up.

    LWPs Super Show-Down Super Recap - 4:50pm - We arrive and make the climb to find our seats. I'm with my wife; a casual watcher who prefers Divas/Bellas, my mum; Attitude era fan who watched every week until about 2005. Eddie's death then the Beniot incident just about ended her love of this. Also my uncle; an 80's fan & Undertaker mark who stopped watching around the time of 'The American Badass' and just followed Taker's Mania streak once the Deadman returned. We are sitting in the top tier, about a 3rd of the way back just right of the hard camera. Perfect view. The ring is surprisingly big, even from this distance. 'Woo' chants echo around like monkeys in the jungle... 5pm - A 1 hour coundown clock appears on the screens around the arena. The few people already in their seats cheer. 5:02pm - The kids in the arena come up with a fun game. Every time the countown clock gets to the last 10 seconds they do a countdown and let out a huge 'Woooo'. 5:08pm - I fucking hate this game... 5:30pm - The clock is gone & some hype videos play. They run a promotion for a fan to get upgraded to front row seats & the crowd pretty quickly locks in on a guy with a foam finger in his mouth. The production people get a boo/yeah chant going as they show finger guy (yay) then someone else (boo). The crowd boo 2 kids trying to get the upgrade. Finger guy wins. 6pm - Showtime! The Bar v The New Day - As a punk rock guy from the 80's my uncle loves Sheamus' mohawk and is instantly cheering for them. The crowd goes wild for the New Day intro and stay pretty hot right through. A solid opener but nailed it big time on that finish which looked awesome. Becky v Charlotte - Yeah, no way they can save Charlotte as a face here. She is well and truly turning into the lady Roman. Pretty good match but the finish had the crowd booing for all the wrong reasons. The 'hits' with the title looked weak as anything and several people around us complained that the ref shouldn't be DQ'ing someone for that. Not sure what the post match beatdown was meant to achieve as Charlotte started it then get suplexed on the floor... Elias/KO v Lashley/Cena - House show match but the crowd didnt care. Elias was perfect before the match dropping a reference to last weeks Grand Final finish, which most of the crowd cheered. Hot tag to Cena who hit the "Five... er Six Moves of Doom". His post match speech felt very much like it was the last time we would see him in Australia. I was waiting for Lashley to spear him but no such luck. Asuka/Naomi v IIconics - We love Peyton and Billy for being Aussie but holy shit the twang they put on their accents is horrific. Wife loved the Glow entrance and mum even got into it by the time they hit the ring. Not much of a match but crowd popped for the Aussie girls. Feel bad for Murphy. Surely they wont have the Aussies sweep. AJ Styles v Samoa Joe - Comment from my uncle: "For a No DQ match it's a bit of a snooze." Crowd took a while to get into it. This was a really good technical match with some insane bumps by AJ but there was no reason to make this No DQ/Must be a winner etc. Why not make it a submission only match with Joe claiming that AJ tapped before so he will tap again? Finish looked a little botched too as AJ took a while to lock in the Calf Crusher. I expected better. 6 woman tag - It was all about Ronda & why not? She is insanely over. Probably the most over non Aussie on the card not named Undertaker. Some tension with Nikki and Ronda to start but nothing more (planting the seeds?) but the finish was great and everyone perked right back up. Alexander v Murphy - This match. Oh man this match. It was fast, hard hitting, high flying and holy fucking shitballs they made the right call on the result. Blew away all 4 of us with the pace they went with. Having not seen either guy before my mum & uncle wanted to know why more guys werent doing that kind of stuff. Place exploded when Buddy kicked out of the Lumbar Check and then again when he won. For me, the rest of the night no longer mattered. Im the same age as Buddy Murphy. We grew up in the same area, started our training at the same wrestling company (PCW in south east Melbourne) & I have basically lived through this guy since his debut. I dont regret the path I took. I have a gorgeous wife, 4 great kids & a job I love. But when that 3 count fell I admit to tearing up. I was so jealous/proud/happy... everything!!! If you had told me 15 years ago that an Australian wrestler would win a WWE championship, in front of 70,000 people at the MCG I would have laughed at you. If you had of told me again 5 years ago that wrestler would be Buddy Murphy I still would have laughed. Buddy Murphy made history last night. It might not mean a heap in the grand scheme of things but for this night and in this moment it's the best I've ever felt watching a WWE show. 6 Man Tag - Ok we need a breather. Braun is massive but Drew is right there with him. How long until we get Drew vs Roman for the title? Otherwise can we get Drew over to SDL in the post Mania shakeup to fight AJ, Joe, Almas, Bryan etc? Shield entrance was great. The face masks looked really cool. You can see why these guys have the company built around them because the whole match was laid out really well and made everyone look great. A few fans are taking the bait Dean turning tonight. The barricade spear had everyone going nuts and the timing was just perfect. Biggest takeaway from this match was how over Ambrose is. This might be another failed heel turn ala Becky if they try to have him go against Reigns. Bryan v Miz - The match my wife was looking forward to the most & I swear she has a psychic connection with Miz at times. After the first sequence & pinfall she started on a rant about how useless the early pins in a match are, we know they have to it their finishers a couple of times, how nobody believes the match is going to end on a random cover or roll up... Then that small package happened. I really don't know what to make of it. I assume the show was running long and so these guys had their time cut but I could also see it being a massive botch with Miz not hearing the count to kick out? Not sure. Was a little deflating but the Main Event was coming up. Triple H v The Undertaker - We knew it would be slow. We knew it wasnt going to be pretty but for the most part we didnt care. There were enough smoke and mirrors here to distract from how bad Taker is looking these days. HBK on the outside was pretty funny stooging for Kane as he walked around the ring. There was a scary moment when they went into the crowd. Once they got a few rows deep everyone ringside was up out of their chairs and just swarming on them. I'm pretty sure security told them to head back to the ring because there was a stretch with the two of them just holding each other and making a bee line for the time keepers area. Was crazy seeing how fast a couple thousand people moved to try and touch them or get a picture. The finish was the right one but a few people around me were pissed. I was stunned at the number of people who made a break for the aisles as soon as the 3 count happened. Why not take some time to appreciate that we will probably never see these guys again? I was waiting for the Taker retaliation but when they set off all the pyro and did the curtain call I assumed that it was done. Then the Tombstone landed, big pops as the Brothers made their way backstage and we locked in the tag match for Crown Jewel I guess. ??? - I have no idea what time it is but I'm in the bathroom taking a leak next to a guy dressed like Randy Savage. 12:20am - Dropped off my mum & uncle. Wife can drive the rest of this trip. I'm stuffed. Nothing was actively bad. The WWE title match was a bit meh given the stip and I thought the Cena tag could easily have been replaced with something involving the US title or Finn Balor (no preshow match?), but regardless of what else happened on this show Buddy Murphy won the Cruiserweight title in his home city so that instantly makes this an A+ in my book.

    Went to the Wheeling house show last night. Decent show with a Main of Elias vs. Kofi. I know he gets shit on a lot here for his work(and I'm not saying it's right or wrong) but had the chance to meet Corbin last night and he couldn't have been any nicer. There were 5 or 6 of us having some beers outside about an hour before the show adjacent to where everyone parks. Baron pulls in, gets out and spends 5-10 minutes just bullshitting with us. Joking about how we have to keep booing him inside so he can stay employed and encouraging us to give him the finger instead if anyone loses their voice. Talked video games and colleges too(one of the girls in our group brought her daughter who is graduating from high school in a couple of months). Came back out after the show and spent 10 more minutes talking with us, thanked us for the middle fingers(we all had aisle seats) and some more bullshitting before he hit the road. Couldn't possibly have been any friendlier or more down-to-earth. Charlotte also walked over and took some pics with us(she had a social media guy filming everything involving her all night. Thinking probably an upcoming Network special on her?) and Big E and Kofi came over as well. All super cool. A few pics in the spoilers.

    This is my 1,000th post on the board (since the relaunch when we all re-registered) so I would like to say that I do know who Pitbull is. Been on this board semi-regularly for, shit, 19 years or so since I was 18 and starting college, I think, and stumbled upon the DVD Reviews. Thanks to all involved for keeping this place going.

    I read the report on Wrestlingobserver.com and once I read the recap of Asuka's match, I knew I made the right choice. Not that I should have to justify myself to whoever the fuck you are. I like posting here and sharing with people that are actually cool, unlike you. I hope being a jerk off on a wrestling message board makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Give me my warning now because I know it's coming.

    My big takeaway is that Rhea Ripley is going to be a megastar. She just has it.

    Knowing Larry, he works at the PC, but he's wandering around and stalling for time before he starts.

    Must have heard that they've started using a new technique at the performance center whereby they can teach guys to be 7' tall. He knew his days were numbered.
