  1. Kevin Conroy will always be my Batman. Simple as that.
  2. Reminder that wrestling news writers are “journalists” the same way that mall security guards are “cops.”
  3. Someone pointed out to me how it feels like the people who have stuck with wrestling after the last boom period aren’t watching for the wrestling, but for the manifestations of the backstage drama therein, and to pick it apart and try to feel like we’re part of it. After the happenings of last night, I haven’t been able to refute it, and realized that if I spent money on that show only for the most talked-about part of it to run on a presser that runs for free on YouTube, I would be mad. In any case; what a shitshow. AEW definitely feels like it’s lost it’s magic, and who knows where this backstage mess will lead. Probably another late WCW situation.
  4. We need Vince back. Kross couldn’t even get Billy Corgan to look in his direction and now he’s back. Who wants to step up and confess they framed Vince? Take one for the team?
  5. As someone who both thinks the NFL is way too trigger-happy and inconsistent in the way it levies discipline, and wouldn’t be too upset if Goodell and co. straight up deleted Watson’s career, all I can think about is when Ray Rice got two games for being caught on tape (though he was released in the aftermath and I think never played again) and how Goodell wants to put his big boy pants on and show he’s not a punk.
  6. That main event was a trainwreck in the best way, and I also appreciate Sammy Guevara's willingness to cheat death for my entertainment. But the most important part? Orange Cassidy using "Jane" as his walkout music once again.
  7. Oklahoma City, Memphis, Austin.
  8. Exactly. Take teams to places without NFL teams, and build new bonds between cities and their teams. Places like St. Louis, Oakland, San Diego, and New York. (as I make that joke I see that they dropped the NY team and are likely putting teams in Vegas [why?], San Antonio [good call], and Orlando [also a good call]).
  9. Sad news out of the Delaware indie scene; former ECWA and Right Coast Pro manager Sebastian Night, real name Brian Recker, has passed away. He leaves behind a six-year-old daughter.
  10. It’s the classic trap; a spring league is built on the assumption that Americans can’t get enough football, only to fall face-first into the harsh reality that Americans CAN indeed get enough football.
  11. I really do think the XFL is going to be the best (and last) chance for an alternative or feeder league for the NFL to pop up. FCF has potential, but it’s tied up in crypto and NFT stuff so who knows if that survives the ongoing crash. And the USFL is the USFL. But other than that? After the AFL died and the remaining indoor leagues struggled to fill the void, I still don’t see much space for alternatives. You have college football, you have the NFL, and you have the CFL if you need summer football (they just resolved their strike!). And the XFL, if that lasts.
  12. This is why I’ve just been pretending the lockout is still going on.
  13. The USFL and XFL’s existences are something that I hope does well, but I don’t know how committed I’d be to watching. The USFL is a ghost town it seems every game, and the XFL’s network deal and Dwayne’s name/money behind it only makes me more resolute that if this iteration can’t survive, then no alternative to the NFL/spring football league can. They tried with indoor football for over 30 years until they finally gave that ghost up. Outdoor football has way more failures, and is the more mainstream version, so Rocky’s probably the best chance for an alternative, or even a feeder league, in a market with no room for one, lead by a league that has repeatedly indicated it has no interest in one.
  14. Nah, it was a Japanese match, with no ring, and the dudes were grappling on the mat surrounded by like ten people towering above them despite sitting on chairs. I think they were using a toy WWE belt for the title.
