    Going back to the "performance art" question with Jordynne Grace...the weird thing is, even as wrestling changes to that viewpoint, we haven't seen a promotion completely steer into the skid there.

    Give every person who goes to the show a voting card, and then run the matches similarly to pairs figure skating: The two/four workers are seen as a team working their match. The matches are ranked by the crowd vote, and at the end of the show the winning "match" is announced and given the win. 

    This seems absurd- but it's the natural end of a "performance art"-based wrestling. If it's not able to go that far, it's inherently saying "the role you play does matter and being able to make people believe in your role matters."

    I have tried to watch something like DragonGate with essentially this mindset. I didn't know the factions or feuds or most of the workers' names, so I was going to just enjoy the "dance" aspect of it. 

    I got bored really fast. And I like figure skating.

    Some toys are out labeled

      Reveal hidden contents

    Sith troops

    have been spotted out there, so that can definitely be a revealed plot point. 

    Also, Mark Hamill retweeted this awesomeness 

     

    Priceless!

    I like how confident Harrison Ford is, and I also like that the three seem to have a good time together.

    IIRC, Han does not join Luke in the "Tell Them!" line, though, in the end?

    First look at Kingdom Come Superman played by Brandon Routh. 

    Great pic!  

    I read a fun fan theory that suggested he could indeed be Reeve/Routh Superman, and that it's the Donnerverse that became Kingdom Come.

    Do you guys ever look at your day-to-day illnesses like a wrestling program/angle?

    For example, I've been dealing with bronchitis the past two weeks. The initial onset is kinda like when the monster heel Pearl Harbor's the babyface from behind. The first week is just a complete beatdown. You're Ricky Morton. Finally you decide to go to the doctor who does the arm-check three times to make sure you're not dead and then gives you medicine for the hot tag/babyface comeback. The next few days you're fighting back but still struggling to knock the hoss down off his feet until you finally emerge victorious and the disease gets its comeuppance which everyone wants to see.

    These drugs are good. 

    What if you're the delusional heel who thinks he's a babyface? Does that mean you're simply getting what you deserve with this illness?
