  1. I get Adam ‘s general point that the women’s division has lost a lot of ground since they took the title off Britt, but I’m skeptical Britt is going to save the division single-handedly. They need to build a core of women audiences want to see. I was surprised Dave now thinks Toni isn’t the right person to hook fans right now (I ageee. Just surprised to hear David say it). I think they put the title on Britt and run Toni-Britt, but Britt-Hayter sounds more interesting aside from both women being better as heels. WO said Rosa is working through a back injury. No timetable for her return, which makes the interim title thing particularly strange.
  2. Bullsh*t. Dude’s a 40-year-old man acting like a 14-year-old. He could have just ignored Sammy or talked it out like an adult. Instead he punched the guy (sucker-punched him, from the sound of it). Would you be saying the same thing if Sammy punched King? I’m skeptical.
  3. Like everything else, the student debt plan is going to be decisive. The idea isn’t getting many cheers where I live and work.
  4. Aside from the part when he seems weirdly enthusiastic about beating on his kids (in the ring during a match, of course). Of course, the kids seem equally willing to drop him on his head. I know it’s all storyline and all three are probably just happy the Gunn Club is getting a push, but it still seems weird to watch it play out. I expected him to be more ambivalent about teaming up with the Acclaim. i don’t think Billy Gunn ever had potential as a breakout singles guy, but he was never terrible. Terrible wrestlers don’t last 14+ year on the WWE. He was/is a very capable tag team guy. Honestly - silly gimmick aside - Billy and Chuck were rather entertaining. NAO was never my thing, but they were way over and the company a lot of money. Matches were decent.
  5. It’ll be interesting to see which podcast chooses to go on next year to talk about how terrible and stifling the AEW environment is. I assume it won’t be Jericho’s or Cabana’s. I’m kidding, of course. I think Punk will be doing the pods by Christmas.
  6. Fwiw, I’m listening to WO now and Metlzer is sure the PPV main-event is still Punk-Moxley, probably with stips. So he apparently thinks the injury is a work, The ThunderRosa interview was odd I can believe something else is going on. Just heard Meltzer say she would have been dropping the title if she had been put on ppv.
  7. Indi’s mostly looked bad lately. Granted, several of her opponents were greener then she is, but Bea doesn’t fall onto that category. Hard to see Indi getting a callup. And I really hope last night was the end of the Drxter-Indi stuff, Wonder if Dexter will be able to do his time at the Uso Penitentiary..
  8. I would call it a cash grab. But I’m not at all sure it will make money, is Killer Klowns remembered fondly by horror fans or something? I would have guessed most gamers have barely heard of it. It was fairly obscure even 20 years ago, I had low expectations for Gamescon, but was really into last night’s show, I haven’t played much - or even thought about gaming - since spring, but there seems to be a fair bit in the pipeline that will me back into it. Seems like September through November could be packed for me. Rather curious about TLoU remake and ready to dive back into that, and there seem to be a lot of AA games that seem promising. Steelrising, Requiem, Plague Tale, Scorn, Callisto Protocols, Evil West, Soulstice have my attention, at least. Seems like at least a few of them are likely to be veny good. I’ll be surprised if God of War doesn’t deliver. Less sure w out Bayonetta 3 and Gotham Knights but high hopes.
  9. Fwiw, Meltzer and Alvarez have both said multiple times that Dolin and Jane aren’t ready for the main roster. They though the tag team tourney match was bad. I think I watched the tag match, but i don.’t remember a thing about it. From what I have seen in NXT, I ‘m not really convinced TA needs called up. Mandy’s epic title run hasn’t done much for me either.
  10. Smoky Mountain had the Beat the Champion Television Championship. Once you won the belt, you defended it against opponents “picked at random”. If you made four successful title defenses, the title was vacated and the now-former champion got a $5,000 bonus.
  11. I feel like that’s something we would remember if you brought it up before now. I do hope Garcia’s babyface turn is just a fake out. Seems too early, It is hilarious that Jericho wants to confront a member of his own faction to find out where the guy’s head is at, but decided to wait a full week and do it in the ring. I guess they don.’t see each other in the locker room?
  12. Wondering if I’d enjoy Jeff Parker’s X-Men: First Class book. The all-ages tag is sort of scaring me off. I’m also not a fan of lighthearted series like Batman 66. Giffen and DeMatteis’ JL stuff are some of my least-liked comics ever, if that helps. On the other hand, I did enjoy Superior Foes of Spider-Man an awful lot. And a few of thr DC/Hanna Barbera crossover books will eventually make my reading list. Also, pretty much everyone should go back and read Parker’s Agents of Atlas run. Great run that deserved to be more widely read.
  13. Long evening at my place last night. We had several rounds of heavy rain last night and thought the animal shelter we volunteer at was going to experience major flooding. So the wife and I joined the evacuation effort and ended up bringing home 9 dogs and 4 cats for the night. Yes, that’s a lot. I feel like I’ve spent the last 15 hours walking dogs non-stop. Actually, that was what I did - in between heavy showers - in an effort to have as few accidents in the house as possible. Fortunately, it was a bit of a false alarm, Shelter took on water bur didn’t suffer major damage and was put back in order this morning, Also have one of our nieces staying on our couch. Her parents are on vacation and she’s having a mini-meltdown about her upcoming marriage. Her life plan at the moment is to graduate college in a few months, marry the boyfriend, move to the South and support him for four year while hie is in chiropractic school. Problem is, she’s not ready to move several states away from family snd maybe not come back. And, the boyfriend is the son of a chiropractor. Like a lot of chiropractor’s, his family believes most illnesses can be treated by chiropractic adjustments so they don’t believe in running to the doctor every time their child has a fever or a cough. They also don’t believe in vaccinations. The boyfriend never had his childhood vaccinations and managed to get through school because the school he attended slipped up and never actually checked his records. Boyfriend is a good guy from a good family and the niece loves him but isn’t cool with some of the more out there tenets of chiropractic medicine. And the niece is 21 but a sheltered 21. She doesn’t seem ready to move away from family and start a new life without a support network in place. Her sisters and cousins generally seemed more mature at 21. My daughters seemed a lot more independent at that age. Niece is at at our place because her parents are on vacation and apparently she doesn’t want to be on her own right now, which seems a little odd for a 21-year-old. lol, life could be worse. My sister took my 80-year-old mom to church and breakfast this morning. Over breakfast, mom mentioned she across getting some old books ready to donate to Goodwill and then casually asked if my sister would be interested in a copy of the Kama Sutra. Lol, now I have a lot of questions, but there is no way in hell I will ever ask any of them. Some mysteries are better left unsolved.
