  1. The Orlando Colon feud with Gilbert is probably my favorite storyline in wrestling at the moment. I think Anniversario was this weekend, too. Maybe the blowoff of that feud?
  2. I’d love to see the Work Horsemen (J.D. Drake/Anthony Henry) in their tag division. Drake, in particular, has become one of my current favorites.
  3. Was Wild West Wrestling affiliated with the AWA? Watching some of their TV on youtube and there’s a match with Sherri Martel defending the AWA title versus Candi Devine. I don’t remember any association between them, but I feel like my only memory of WWW is from after Mantell merged with World Class.
  4. To continue the theme, wasn’t one of Yasuda’s biggest issues out of the ring that his wealth was indeed “shorter than a midget on his knees?”
  5. Finally watching SCI. Some guys I’m not familiar with who I’ll definitely be scoping out other matches for. Nice to see some faces I haven’t seen in ages, too. 2019 Slim J is a-ok by me. Daniel Makabe vs. Tony Deppen was incredible. Looking forward to night two.
  6. Anyone go through Al Snow’s book? I see it’s available through Hoopla (for those not in the know, a digital ebook service available through lots of libraries). Free is the right price, but is worth the time?
  7. Probably due to my anxiety as much as anything, but I’m definitely still a lurker for the most part. Have been for the better part of 20 years. Fuck, we’re all getting old.
  8. I'll second the love for this one. Just a really fun nostalgia trip up and down the undercards of old JAPW shows. It's weird to live in a world where 'cide is putting over Teddy Hart, though. I was waiting and hoping for a last second turn there. Homicide looked like he was having a blast. That cold open with him heading back to the Doghouse and talking about how his friends might be wrestling in front of 80,000 people but that this show was his Wrestlemania moment was more touching than I would have expected.
  9. Kofi, but not Prince Nana? What an affront to royalty!
  10. Pretty sure the only title switch I’ve seen in person is Mero going over Faarooq in the IC-Title tourney. That same set of TV tapings was the TV debut of fake Razor/Diesel, I believe. Way better than any title switch! Ha!
  11. Face/face: Road Warriors vs. Steiners (Starrcade ‘89), Hart vs. Piper (WM8), Hart vs. 123 Kid (Raw) The only heel/heel matches that come to mind are Savage/Roberts from SNME and I vaguely remember really liking a Vader/Austin match on Raw.
  12. Not sure what the promotion would have been at the time, but I watched a Wild Samoans run show in the food court of the Fairlane Village Mall in Pottsville, PA. This was maybe early-90s? I remember none of the lineup, but I probably still have an Afa autographed photo kicking around somewhere in my attic.
  13. I’m playing AC:Odyssey. A lot. 20+ hours over the last 3-4 days. Much like Origins, this game is a dream come true for someone (me) who likes to check boxes in video games. A billion discreet areas, all with their own clearly defined objectives? Sign me up! Also started Celeste, which seems like it might end up more punishing than I want, but I’m playing with Assist Mode off. I’d be willing to flip it on to see the story, though. The good thing is that, while I’m banging my head against some parts, it’s ultimately a super fair game. When I die, it’s because I messed up, not because the game screwed me. God help me, but KH3 is the game I’m most looking forward to. It’s going to be one of those games that causes me to drop everything else so I can focus on it.
  14. Finished Spider-Man. One trophy short of the platinum. Not even going to bother, as I’d need to bang my head against the least fun part of the game for me (the Taskmaster challenges) to get the tokens needed to unlock the final 2-3 suits. Hell of a game. My biggest complaint is likely That’s a relatively minor complaint, though, as the rest of the game had me hooked. The combat is an absolute blast and the swinging feels amazing, no pun intended.
  15. If it’s the same random event I had, it looks friggin’ brutal as well. Migraine earlier kept me from playing and now I won’t get to touch it ‘til Wednesday, probably. I am very sad.
