  1. I used to think Holm had a chance stylistically but I think she's going to crumble the first time Cyborg tags her.
  2. Haven't been watching much in the last few months and I'm delighted to catch up and see how over Rusev is.
  3. Haven't seen a ton of WWE TV lately but Nakamura vs Orton was terrific.
  4. Old Man Cena trying to rewrite his own history is certainly an amusing thing to watch.
  5. Jason Jordan has already hit the "let's surround him with popular people" phase of his push and we're only a few weeks in. That's incredible.
  6. He was pretty good on it. He just seems like a nice normal dude and that's the reason he probably never did a lot of interviews. Totally would have ruined the gimmick.
  7. I need to hear more about Fandango's love of Power Pro Wrestling.
  8. I don't know, it doesn't sound good. He lived as hard or harder than Dusty and Piper and he didn't take breaks like they did either.
  9. I hope RAW is hoss fighting continues until Mania. Cesaro got one hell of a match out of Dean. The tag match could be off the charts.
  10. Very in-ring heavy edition of Smackdown and it was almost all good action. If Shinsuke just squashes Jinder at SummerSlam, it may make the last few months worth it. Orton/Rusev is actually a fresh feud. Wish they had a better issue except, "hey we both don't have a feud now so let's wrestle." Chad Gable looked great. AJ and Owens are starting to have better matches but the Shane involvement feels very forced.
  11. They should focus more on the ego part and less on the jealousy, IMO. Also, Bayley's not over anymore so everyone is going to cheer when Sasha turns because heel turns of "misused" favorites are the new face turns.
  12. So clearly they're hinting at Sasha turning on Bayley because she's jealous (a classic WWE women's storyline!) which is exactly what they were doing before the shakeup. They basically just gave Alexa the same verbiage they were giving to Charlotte back then. I think that means Nia is going to go face out of all of this and they're going to do the dreaded Alexa vs Nia feud after SummerSlam.
  13. Really digging the old man stuff in the G1 more than anything else.
  14. I could see Emma being sent to Smackdown by Kurt as he becomes the overprotective father. They usually like to squash people before they switch brands. That's my hope, at least. Smackdown desperately needs another heel who can work if they're going to keep Charlotte babyface.
  15. From Main Event'ers to Main Eventers: The Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel Story
  16. That's kinda what I was getting at with saying they aren't all that committed to it. It started that way but they backed way off. Jinder is not a good a wrestler, though. I could overlook that to a point if they were doing amazing things with his character but they haven't. They've been lazy as fuck like you said. Orton in the matches has been making chicken salad out of chicken shit because that's his job but it's wasted effort if the company has nothing beyond the same foreign heel template for Jinder. If creative sucks, I'd rather just see AJ and Orton wrestle to see who is better at hitting their moves.
  17. I liked the first two matches with Jinder from Orton's perspective. He was working his ass off in those to try and make chicken salad out of chicken shit.
  18. Or they could have just given us AJ vs. Orton three times instead. I kinda humored them with the Jinder push but it's clear they aren't even all that committed to it. They barely feature him then ask someone else to drag something good out of him whenever he gets in the ring. It's a waste of my time.
  19. Tanahashi has totally stolen the tournament for me thus far. It helps that all his matches have a natural story to tell but he's completely played into it in the best ways. Elgin vs Okada was great but I'm not sure why there's some surprise online. Elgin has those type of "big matches" all the time. He just had one with Trevor Lee in CWF Mid Atlantic. He's very good at that big match style. Zack has been the most pleasant surprise of the tournament. He's gotten as gritty as someone with his frame can get and the fans really respond to his nasty submissions.
  20. Look, I'm a big WWE fan but the G1 has been aces this year. Not the year to make the Baron Corbin comparison.
  21. Fathered the fucking Road Dogg.
  22. Man, I'm sure glad Road Dogg and the Smackdown crew caved into the "ZOMG CHARLOTTE GONNA DOMINATE SMACKDOWN DIVISION EQUAL TIME FOR ALL" crowd. FFS. Fuck the whole Armstrong family.
  23. Yeah, that was good but I was very underwhelmed any time I saw him on his own in TNA. He seems like a really nice guy too in real life but he's just missing that extra gear on his own.
  24. Prepare to say "it wasn't much of a match" a lot with Mike Bennett.
  25. I'm mainly interested to see the Singh Brothers diving off of various parts of the prison into RKO's and getting murdered by Randy again. Also, it's amazing how far people have come around on Cena because imagine the backlash if Roman Reigns brought up f'n 9/11 to build up a dumb ass flag match?
