  1. Has Money in the Bank been mentioned yet? This was a novel concept in 2005 but it's been done beyond death. All it does is devalue the belts beyond recognition because they never book the case holder as a viable threat, like ever. The viewer is always left thinking they aren't good enough to hold the belt and they don't deserve it. It was cool when Cena or RVD cashed in ahead of time because I could believe they deserved it if they won. The matches themselves are so old hat too, and hell, the concept of the ladder match needs to be reworked entirely. I miss when ladder matches told stories and didn't just serve as bump fests. They do these god damn things twice a year just for MITB and we've seen every bump there is to see. We've seen dives off the ladders, ladders getting torn in half, stacked ladders, and anything else you can think of. Just retire both concepts for at least a year and call me again.

    Thunderdome probably moving to Tropicana Field, so more screens.

    I wonder if they'll allow more fans in. I think Desantis lifted limits on occupancy at the arena owners discretion but of course, I don't expect Tropicana to allow anything close to full occupancy. But, knowing the WWE and Vince...

    Funny enough ICW is doing an iron man death match tonight?  Not sure I've ever seen one of them before and kudos in advance to both guys who will likely bleed buckets for 60 mins.  Oh and Meng is also on the card!

    Now, I want to see that more than Turning Point. Is it just Meng beating the shit out of geeks with barb wire for 60 minutes?

    Wrestlemania 12 soured me on the 60 minute iron man match forever, so yes.

    It also intrudes on/limits the rest of your card in a way that the 30 minute iron man match doesn't, so there's that to consider as well.

    You go away now for that opinion

    That match is still my favorite WWE match. I thought wrestling was still real for that show and I cried everytime Shawn was working underneath. I had a fricken' Bible out praying that he'd win during the match. That's emotion, baby.

  5. So, I was just paying attention to this show through the BOARD, and I thought I'd tune into the show at 10 to see what Underground was like, thinking it would be something different.  To no surprise, nothing looked different and the write-ups for the Underground shit sound terrible and lame.  My heart goes out to people who faithfully watch this shit every week.

  6. Why isn't Heath fighting Drew at Extreme Rules?  Honestly, as a former WWE supporter, I would consider watching the show if they had that program and just stuck to authentic storytelling.  Heath just wants one shot at the belt so that he can tell his kids he had the opportunity.  If he fails, he fails but he's proud.

  7. I asked this over at the WON boards and never got an answer.  Has there been any word as to why Shayna and Bianca Belair haven't been on the product in weeks?  Does it have to do with some sort of quarantine or are they just not being used for some idiotic reason so that a youngster like Nia Jax can have their spot?

  8. Very enjoyable and quick show with some good wrestling.  Wardlow and Lucha worked their asses off in the opener, and I didn't expect to see such a decent match.  

    After all these years, I finally remember how intense of a promo Taz is.  I do wonder if Cage's match with Mox is even going to happen though.  (I guess he might not be there, since Renee has COVID)

    FTR/SCU was pretty incredible, and FTR continue to look like stars.  They may have taken a sizable pay decrease but I bet both of them are happy since in AEW tag teams can be seen as stars, and they can wrestle matches like this one pretty regularly.  It's impossible for teams in the WWE to be stars these days since the division is such a throwaway, and it's been that way for at least the last two decades.  Hell, they might've been released anyways if they had stayed and re-signed.  FTR vs. every other team is going to be straight fire.  That tag vignette with JR was real good, too.

    Britt was good as usual, and Tony isn't a very good friend for not helping her out.

    The Shida/Ford angle was pretty decent and intense, and Kip's missing lense was funny.

    Cody's red suit was glorious, and the whole press conference angle was unique.  Hager looked decent and that's better than looking bad, and he seemed to be in his element.

    The final angle was pretty good, and I have to think that OC is going over, and he definitely should.  Jericho has nothing to lose and a win for OC will continue his momentum.  I shudder to think of how the WWE would've handled OC, or anyone on this show for that matter.

    The Hardy/Santana match wasn't much and it stinks seeing Santana lose.  Sammy not being there for the fight was disappointing, plus his karaoke for Jericho.  

    Pretty great show, overall.  Nowadays, I don't even flip to NXT on commercials, and just stick to CNN.
