  1. Couple bits from that we didn't see was Punk going and giving Mark Henry a big hug and then shaking Taz's hand and then having a bit of trouble finding his way offstage cuz AEW's dual-entranceway gimmick is difference than WWE's side-of-the-screen thing.
  2. I hate to be even a little bit negative about what was such an awesome return, (I absolutely cried and do not care who knows,) but Punk saying that he expects getting back to wrestling to be like riding a bike makes me worry he might be underestimating the difficulty of getting back into in-ring shape. I know he had stints pf time away from the ring due to injury, but he's never really done the Jericho thing of needing to come back after years away, and he's wrestling one of the fastest dudes in the business. I'm sure he's capable of getting back there, mentally and physically, (albeit he may need to adjust for the fact that he's in his 40s now,) and really the All Out crowd is gonna eat it all up regardless, but I do still wonder if there might be a ramp-up time before we can expect Punk to deliver in-ring.
  3. The rest of the show ranged from ok-but-inconsequential to...whatever in fuck that Orton/Bliss/Fiend bullshit was, but that Reigns-Bryan match was amazing.
  4. Are we not gonna take note of the fact that Daniel Bryan headbutted a Samoan?
  5. I thought you meant Carlito for a moment and I was confused.
  6. It was six-five and pick 'em which foot he was closer to..
  7. ...ish I've seen Shane McMahon punches with less distance.
  8. Co-worker in a team chat: "Reminder everyone: It's Friday! :)" Me: "You know what that means." (Literally no one in that chat but me watches wrestling but I don't care)
  9. Anna Jay could be one of the pillars of the women's division. If Abadon or whoever serves as a transitional heel champ to take the title off Shida, her winning could be one of the things to cement face Dark Order alongside Hangman.
  10. We have built a better world for our children than we ever knew ourselves.
  11. Not too much to add. Was damn near a perfect show. I'm amused that Jericho said like 4 WWE trademarked names on the night (Harper, Rowan, Big Red, Bludgeon Brothers) cuz that's where he met Brodie and Rowan and you always remember the first name you meet a guy under even if that gimmick's gone later.
  12. Ok leaving aside that Callihan is still trying to suck cheap heat out of a botch from 33 months ago, are we gonna address him actually using "roll that beautiful bean footage" in 2020 on the company's biggest show in awhile?
  13. I was with you but Second City FC is pretty great
  14. I spent most of the last week of summer without air conditioning because running the ACs, even with new filters, and an air purifier running at maximum 24/7, was giving me headaches indoors, but it was almost bearable because the smoke has been so heavy that barely any sunlight was getting through so it was only mid-80s.
  15. I believe that the stupe du jour is that they aren't really wildfires, that they're all being set by "Antifa". Which you'd think would be progress from a couple years ago when the theory was "space lasers", except actual idiots on the ground have been stopping people trying to drive away from the fires, endangering everyone around them, looking for fictional antifa arsonists.
  16. There are decades where nothing happens and weeks where decades happen.
  17. That's more Adam Pearce than I've seen in almost 20 years.
  18. That was the most Oakland A's thing ever. Baseball: Extra innings will start with a runner on second. Baseball commentariat: This is gonna make smallball and the ability to execute it critical. Oakland A's: Fuck you *walks the bases loaded and hits a walkoff grand slam*
  19. I still play sometimes, and unlike Petrol I have the DVDR crew flag on, but I'm almost always just doing my own thing for a bit before I get bored.
  20. This is a pretty little thing, but it was a kind gesture and sticks in my memory. In 2001, I went to an indy show where Christopher Daniels was wrestling in the main event, and I wore a Curry Man t-shirt. After the show, I stopped at a Denny's about a half-hour down the road. About 5 minutes after I sit down, a large group walks in, most of them wrestlers from the show, including Daniels, and they get seated in an area pretty much right next to me. I figure since this wasn't a public appearance, they're just here to eat like I am, that I'm just gonna leave them alone and sit and eat my food. I think I did a decent job not looking too much at them, though they were moderately loud and I couldn't help but overhear conversations. Turns out it's apparently Daniels' birthday, and they've got him a cake. At one point, Daniels cuts a slice of the cake and brings it over to my table, saying, "Nice shirt. Wish I had one just like it."
  21. Hold up. Is Wiggy doing any of the following things? Refusing to platform stories of abuse at CZW shows or by CZW personnel or talent Claiming that CZW is fine and has no problems? Attempting to quash or denigrate victims or witnesses who are making allegations or speaking out about abuse at CZW? Because if she is, then this is valid criticism and so be it. If she is not, then going at her because she is employed by CZW and has not experienced or witnessed abuse firsthand and has said so is bullshit.
  22. If it were on Reddit we would all assume it was made up.
