  1. As the talk of MJF possibly going to WWE in 2024 heat up, and with people opining whether there will be a mass exodus of "Cody people" to WWE, I have to ask the important question for my sanity: Ricky Starks is not a "Cody person" is he? I consider him to have more potential than MJF and his leaving would hurt more than MJF to me.
  2. His parents had really good taste naming him after Satellite Namigation
  3. I don't think it would be a wise look or smart decision to give Sky such a short title reign. Wardlow loses by MJF shenanigans, including the introduction of his newest bodyguard: Brian Cage. I see everyone jumping Wardlow (Spears, Page, Cage, Sky) and it still just barely being enough to cost him the W. I also see Tully cutting a promo along the lines of "FTR you want to talk about family? I brought a family that wants to kick your ass." Cue the Briscoes. I saw nothing wrong with Jeff deciding to do a little dance on the way to the ring. Man was excited in the moment. I was excited in the moment to see him. I may have also danced. Happy and, more importantly, healthy Jeff Hardy is an awesome add; and that pop (and the views of his debut) should tell you that signing him was a wise decision. TK doesn't miss often. Speaking of no brainer signings, I am in the camp that could listen to Regal speak for hours and hours about practically anything. I think his addition to the roster both for an on air role and backstage will ultimately be one of the most important in AEW history.
  4. King/Jericho was my match of the night. Where people identified with Stone Cold as an everyman because they wanted to stick it to their boss, people organically identify with Eddie as an everyman because he is just fucking real. The amount of people he has inspired with this run and with his candor in interviews is awesome, and I am damn glad to see it. You know you are over when you are the person not named Punk getting a chant during the dog collar match. The Wardlow turn is off to a fire start. While we are talking about Wardlow though, whose bright idea was it to have Ricky Starks take a neck bump on a ladder? The man should be protected like he was one of the pillars, because his upside is just as promising, perhaps more. I am going to go ahead and jump on the Jade Cargill bandwagon. If she continues to learn from Danielson on in ring and psychology and Jericho on promos, I am going to go ahead and call it. With no missteps, she will be one of the biggest stars in all of professional wrestling within the next two years. There is no limit to her potential.
  5. If you're both talking about who I think you're talking about, do you think he will be a one off or permanent signing? And, will Brandi be with him? (I joke, I joke). First question was serious though.
  6. I was thinking the other day how the Dante/Team Taz angle might have gone if Dante had stayed with the group but remained a face. It got me wondering if this has ever happened: a group or faction where one member is a babyface while the rest are heels, or vice versa? If there are obvious examples that I should remember from my 40 year fandom, I apologize. I'm having memory issues and have forgotten a lot of things that I might once have known.
  7. I have Control downloaded, but haven't tried it yet. I will give it a go.
  8. After reading a bit more about Days Gone, it has definitely gone on my must buy list. Thanks!
  9. I think I will give Witcher 3 a try. Thanks.
  10. I'm not a fan of "Our settlement needs this, and this and this and this". I'm okay with having to forage for materials to upgrade weapons and whatnot, I just don't want to build whole villages. I'm not Jimmy Carter.
  11. I have a PS4, Xbox One, Switch, 3DS, and a PC that doesn't balk at most games. Ghosts of Tsushima is a game that interests me, but I game on a budget and it hasn't dropped in price enough to warrant my buying it. I do definitely want to check it out though.
  12. I haven't tried Village. I was fairly deep into RE7 and enjoying it until I hit a no ammo hiccup while battling the mother. I haven't revisited or restarted it. I agree on the other two Tomb Raider games. I especially liked Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
  13. I played through a bit of Judgement and liked it; but then it went off of PS Now, so I haven't had the chance to finish it.
  14. Here are the last 10 games I have completed. Fallout 4, GTA 5, Sleeping Dogs, Tomb Raider, RDR2, Resident Evil 4, Yakuza 0, Those Who Remain, Evil Within, Evil Within 2. I do have a couple caveats. I don't like co-op games ("I'm a rebel Dottie, a loner") and I don't like crafting or settlement building if it is a major component of the game. I welcome any recommendations based upon this list and my crotchety caveats.
  15. There are certainly flashier teams, perhaps more physical teams; but I will knife fight* anyone who says that FTR is not the best team in the world, at the moment. (*Plastic knives taped to the end of 10 foot poles...I don't know where some of you have been).
  16. Today while trying to determine if she trains regularly with anyone competent, I learned that Jade Cargill is married to one of my all-time favorite Cincinnati Reds players (no, it is not Chris Sabo).
  17. Rabid watcher of BTE...probably an apologist for a lot of the stuff on there that gets shit on. Having said that, the Nick Jackson answers unknown callers skit is easily one of the worst things I have ever had the misfortune to lay eyes on. It is not funny in the slightest. I have been wrong before, but I get an asshole vibe from Nick that I don't get from Matt. The last few minutes of the latest episode were perfection, though.
  18. Awesome PPV! My top 3 matches were MJF/Darby, Punk/Kingston, and Hangman/Omega, though every match had at least something compelling or entertaining about it. I'm not stoked about the Jay Lethal signing, but if he is being brought in to help train younger wrestlers in every aspect of pro wrestling except tight finishers, I'm good with it. I'm convinced that Tony (Schiavone) and JR have legitimate beef. Hopefully it doesn't come to an ugly head, because I know who does more for the company and who would be out of a job Sooner (see what I did there) than later.
  19. Great song...little heavy on some words that might not be conducive entertainment for all ages, though.
  20. So, it is he said, they said. Who to believe? If Keith Lee was being disingenuous, he had to know it would come to light; but by the same token, why was it notable enough for WWE to respond? They have been accused of much worse explicitly and said nothing, but Keith Lee simply says that he paid his own medical bills and suddenly WWE is all "Hold on hoss!"
  21. I say this with full love...King "sprinting" after Punk reminded me of my toddler when he picks up something he shouldn't and I call him on it.
  22. If this has been covered, apologies. Does AEW require its wrestlers to be vaccinated or simply to test negative? I think the answer to this question might play a factor in which wrestlers released by WWE are pursued by TK. I have sneaking suspicions that a few of the people that pique his curiosity are not vaccinated (Not talking about Nia Jax...TK wouldn't do that to his locker room).
  23. I would be willing to bet every cent I have that Mox's replacement is Ricky Starks. Thankfully, I'm poor as the proverbial church mouse, so not much to lose.
  24. Put me in the camp of those who would love to see Danhausen, Brody King, Rok-C, Dickinson, Amy Rose, and the Briscoes in AEW.
