  1. If you like Deadwood, I’ll throw a recommendation out there for Luck. Completely overlooked when it was on and cancelled for good reason, but Milch and Mann are two good flavours that taste great together.
  2. PWInsider is reporting that Dreamer has been indefinitely suspended from Impact.
  3. Oh, interesting. With him being interviewed I mistakenly just took it as read he was on the event.
  4. And maybe not even a first good season. Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will split Jeopardy hosting duties for the year. The producers are still searching for a permanent host.
  5. He hasn't had a match with Nakazawa yet. Let's wait and see.
  6. Haven't had time to read the whole thread and sorry if I'm repeating anyone, but do next week's shows look pretty decent?
  7. Saw the last half hour live and went back to watch some other stuff. Like the new arena set up and colours. Like them aggressively trying to introduce new talent. Always like when they use that crane deal as their main camera. The wedding was a bit of whatever for me but Indi Hartwell rules. If anything, sticking with Ciampa is too safe and too much like old NXT. Put it on RIck's kid immediately. Let's get weird.
  8. Good catch. Even italicized to make clear it was TV and not PPV, Halftime Heat didn't jump off the Wikipedia page while I was skimming.
  9. Mysterio wins the vacant belt and drops it to Cena after the Chicago MITB. If the standard is strictly not on PPV, Flair taking it off Savage and then Bret taking it off him would be the next most recent occurance. If we open the conversation up to any top men's belt, the WHC has more recent occurrences of this. Del Rio won the belt and Ziggler took off him on TV. They also did the Ziggler-Edge deal on TV. And Edge cashed in on Taker on TV, vacated, and Khali won the battle royal on SmackDown. It's been a while.
  10. Long overdue. Happy for E. Caught a few minutes after the Jays game. Omos seems to be getting over. For how long has Ali been a face and how did that come about?
  11. I'd guess it's because Punk came in from the cold and spoke his name and we're about to see a few more bites at the apple for people he has his eye on. But yeah, would have liked to see more sooner.
  12. Negotiations for what? A spot as Nia Jax's personal seamstress who has to drop his first name because they don't want him to be confused with John Cena?
  13. What's Cody need The Pinnacle for? He lost four guys from his entourage still has Lee Johnson and Brock Anderson and Dustin and the Gunns and Red Velvet and Baron Black and Fuego and Kilynn King. He's all set. I guess if Pinnacle wants to be a sub group like the Gunn Club, that could be allowed. But it needs to be made clear that Cody isn't in The Pinnacle, The Pinnacle is in the Nightmare Family. Gotta keep the hierarchy clear for everyone. Seriously though, there's probably a smart story to do about someone successfully usurping leadership role in The Pinnacle the way MJF tried with the Inner Circle, but I didn't enjoy the execution of any of that stuff so I'd rather they not. I guess Cody could have some sort of come-to-Jesus moment where he realizes the guys who turned on him were kind of right about him, but MJF really put him through the ringer. It's an interesting idea, but I think I'd probably steer clear.
  14. If I had to guess, probably a lot easier to get a show made if you can credibly pitch bringing Olyphant back in that part. Whatever. Let those people play in their version of Elmore Leonard world forever.
  15. That could be good. Wardlow's one of those guys everyone's talked about as a potential future top act for a while now and they've done so little with him. I feel like I should be more invested by now since he's in theory many things I like, but he's been on the bottom rungs of a feud with ten guys in it where his main dance partner has been Jake Hager. Those are some slim pickings and the results haven't shined. Long past time to see him get something to sink his teeth into, and anyone getting a shot at Miro right now is that sort deal. Honestly, I count it as a flaw of AEW's philosophy that we didn't get more combinations of that faction war in the ring. If Rampage had been around then, Wardlow vs Sammy could have been a nice high-profile power vs speed match and carried the hour.
  16. Yet another reason MITB should have been done away with years ago. Oh, opportunistic heel Edge found a loophole? Close the loophole, don't build a monument to it and devote several shows a year to worshipping the loophole.
  17. I dare them to bait and switch the people again. Do it.
  18. The Justified team is adapting City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit for FX. Olyphant is rumoured to reprise his role as Raylan.
