  1. I've defended the company on occasion, much to my own detriment. But you can't get much more blatant than that. I don't know what's more infuriating, the shirt or WWE's apathetic response. Onto Bret's suplex, I once attended a seminar with Bret and commented on how aesthetically pleasing his suplex looked, and that it looked genuinely damaging to his opponent. He told us he would slap the mat as hard as he could on impact to create an extra ''snap''. It's the minor details. Bret was the king at that.
  2. What gives Tessa the right to jump the queue over girls like Bianca and Shayna? NXT is full to the brim with talented women, to the point where Deonna Purrazzo can't even get a match on television. Tessa could probably negotiate her way into a main roster contract, but I can't see it going over well with the women in Orlando. The last thing Tessa needs is more drama.
  3. Showerthought. Given his physiognomy and stature, the fact that Brandon Cutler isn't doing an Alex Wright tribute gimmick is a tremendous oversight.
  4. After seeing how good her English is, I feel Shida has the potential to translate really well when she makes the permanent move over. Tessa apparently signed long-term with IMPACT in July of last year, in what world is 15 months considered ''long term''? D'Amore tweeted on the announcement, saying: "Excited to have an elite athlete like Tessa Blanchard part of Impact Wrestling for years to come."
  5. Why wouldn't Jericho want the adulation and his name all over the product? it ties into his yearning for gratitude. I've read Nash's tweet a dozen times and still don't know what he's talking about.
  6. The fans with their hands on their heads was exactly my reaction at home. So well done. Call it AEW's influence or not, but I liked how they had Cathy read out the card for next week in advance. Good to see they're not resting on their laurels and playing it safe with this.
  7. So going forward, the top of the card is looking something like this - Cole/Ciampa, Gargano/Balor, Velveteen/Strong?, Dijak&Lee/UE Also they're definitely going through with Riddle/Goldberg aren't they? I can't see Riddle using the jackhammer and commentary laying the Goldberg stuff on thick without Goldberg's permission and agreement to an angle. It's one of the most out there feuds they've had in years. It really should lead to Goldberg calling out Riddle on the main roster, it would be a waste (albeit attractive ratings boost) to do it at Full Sail.
  8. Oh I agree with you there. Swagger sucks, and his sucking leaves him way more vulnerable to being sucked into the woke-lefts wrath than say, AJ Styles, who gets a free pass nowadays because his talent resists such critics. When the honeymoon period is over, we will get a far better look as to who is really over and who isn't. I do think you're overselling the amount of fans that share such a demand for inclusivity though. Nonetheless, one dip in quality and the pitchforks are ready to come out.
  9. The same crowd that were chanting ''We The People'' in unison two weeks ago?
  10. They have something special with SP if they are allowed to succeed. I didn't know Humberto was part of the Garza family - no wonder he's so good
  11. Same old from Starr to be honest. Only so many times you hear the same DSA talking points before they become gimmicky and empty, especially coming from a middle class schmuck like him.
  12. He's done pretty well with Alexa and Charlotte. Owens too. Yes Alexa is very good, don't @ me.
  13. They missed a trick not making Jericho/Darby a ladder match. Imagine Darby hopping up the ladder with his hands tied, having Jericho beat, but unable to break the tape as he tries to snag the title down with his head. Anyway, the street fight was fantastic regardless. Agree that Hager wasn't really necessary, but it is what it is. Britt's homecoming next week being advertised is interesting, perhaps a heel turn?
  14. the internet told me Sasha and Alexa had molten heat and had to be split up
  15. Maybe Bisch is doing liaison work for Fox/WWE. Vince replacing Bisch with the ultimate prowres yes-man just says it all. The inner workings of the company couldn't be more transparent.
  16. Surprised they allowed Balor to leave looking at how thin the SD roster is, unless Cain is going to be SD exclusive. Did Luke Harper get drafted or did I miss that?
  17. Charlotte & Becky being on Raw almost guarantees that we're getting the Mania rematch with Ronda sooner or later
