    If I'm reading this right, they're going to pay $780M to build the stadium, but none of that will go to buying the land.  They'll pay $4M per year in rent  Well, it's not like City Football Group doesn't have the money to do it. 

    And NYCFC needs to get out of Yankee Stadium.  Having to play "home" games at RBA and in Los Angeles is a bad look for the League in general and the club in particular.

    I hope that's at least a 30 year lease.

    Is this the first time Akiyama has wrestled in the US? I don't recall him coming over in the mid-aughts when all the other Noah guys were working ROH, etc.

    He did some shows out in California a few years ago. Rev Pro, I think...

    I also want to say he did some shows with Donovan Morgan & The little guy's promotion back in the day

    The match would have been better, but unless the finish was the same (a face count-out victory), the odds are Tito's Wrestlemania record would then have been 1-8, instead of 2-7.

    This got me thinking, what would have been "a Wrestlemania-worthy" card for Wrestlemania I? What would have been the biggest and best card that the roster could have allowed at the time?

    US Express vs Nikolai Volkoff & The Iron Sheik

    Ricky Steamboat vs Greg Valentine

    Junkyard Dog vs Don Muraco

    Tito Santana vs Brutus Beefcake

    Big John Studd vs Tony Atlas

    Jimmy Snuka vs Terry Funk

    Wendi Richter w/ Cindi Lauper vs Fabulous Moolah

    20 Man Battle Royale

    Hulk Hogan w/ Mr T vs Roddy Piper

    Matt Hardy taking lessons from the Michael Rappaport School of Old Dudes Who Think They Have a Permanent Pass Because They Like New Jack Swing and A Tribe Called Quest. It’s a long name for a school but trying telling that to Rappaport. 

    I miss New Jack Swing and A Tribe Called Quest. That was my jam in 1991.

    I've watched Sammy's vlog a handful of times. This sounds like a terrible idea unless we get the really good stuff like multiple wrestlers wanting to murder Sammy.

    Maybe it could be like Jackass. Someone just always waiting around a corner to steal on Sammy or setup elaborate pranks to fuck with him.

    Sammy does have a Steve-O vibe to him.

    For the men? Absolutely.

    But I think 1-2 more 'names' in the women's division would help out for sure.

    With Britt & Jade being their own little universes, Storm (and Rosa) need more than Deeb, Hayter & Nightingale to defend against.

    Unless they are gonna elevate Ford/Bunny/Conti/Anna JAS?

    I think Ford is ready.

     Is William Regal the greatest Wrestling to go From Serious Pro Wrestler to doing comedy back serious wrestler without losing any credibility? 

    He said alot of Santinos comedy spots he did was Regals ideas. Santino on the other hand is a legit tough guy but people will always view him as a comedy wrestler

    I kinda feel like Terry Funk fits this...

    Random bit of fantasy signing/booking while I sit through yet another meeting that should've been an email: I would like to think that we're heading to Brody/Wardlow for the TNT title, but in the event they want to continue HOB as a trio (plus Julia) - what would you guys think about an all-hoss supergroup of Brody/Rowan/Damo? 

    Can we call them The Meatslappers?

    Unless I'm reading this wrong, there's never been a taped Claudio vs Miro match that went over ten minutes, and really just a handful of single matches in general over the years. Your post somehow let me know that I really need a 17 minute match between those two.

    This exists though:

    Could you imagine these two as centrebacks?

    Incidentally I'm going to a sushi place for the very first time in my life tonight as my uncle is in town and I guess he wants to spend my dad's money since that jailbird is broke as a joke. Any recommendations? Menu Selection - Kofusion

    You're best going with any roll featuring a tempura fried whatever. Scorpion / Dragon rolls are pretty ubiquitous across sushi joints and are always a crowd pleaser. 

    Unagi is delicious- but for a rookie might be too strong of flavor. 

    If you want to do raw then go with basic stuff like anything tuna related- Hamachi, ahi, otoro, etc. Pretty mild flavor with a cold steak like texture. If you want to expand try a scallop.

    That’s why it’s funny everyone is clowning United right now. Arsenal had 0 points after three games and prob should have qualified for the Champions League. They have different problems but 2 games is too small a sample size to project a season, esp with the transfer window still open. 

    Because it's United. Now is the time to be relishing in their downfall. United can't even bring in 36 year old strikers.
