  1. Liked everything about Kushida's presentation but wasn't a fan of the match, actually, aside from the Ospreay matches Kushida is kinda boring to me. Velveteen continues to be the crown jewel of the show. I wonder where they're going with UE. Roddy going solo would be disastrous.
  2. I didn't realize Harper is 40 this year. If I was Hunter i'd be running Harper's contract down in NXT if Vince has no plans for him.
  3. Lio should be paid his share in royalties, and making Lashley actually watchable deserves all of the pay rises. But WWE is WWE, he hadn't been on the main roster a year and was in a managerial role similar to Spud for the most part. If he shut the fuck up and paid his dues and played the game like everyone else, he would have gotten that MF bag eventually. Toxic working environment withstanding, toxic behavior only makes things more toxic. Throwing one of your co-workers under the bus is a dumb move. Playing identity politics is cute however, we'll see how that one plays out. Ali is a perfect example of someone who represents himself in the best possible way and it's paid off ridiculously well for him. Go figure.
  4. Were The Heartthrobs also known as The Dicks? The mid to late noughties era was something else.
  5. The production values of the Ambrose video smell like Tony Khan money to me. If so, AEW need to piggy back off this momentum immediately. The tweet has 14k RT's as of now. When was the last time a WWE talent had that kind of engagement on social media? I know it's been a slow news week, but that's insane. I'm sure Niners can shed some light on this for us. I know the promo game in the indies has improved massively over the years, GCW being evidence of this, and Ambrose being at Blood Sport during Mania week could fuel those GCW rumors even further. Cody has interacted with the tweet too. Or it's a swerve. Exciting.
  6. It's a time-honored tradition, and Lio Rush didn't wanna honor that tradition.
  7. Love that Ambrose/Moxley never touched Twitter bar I think one time when WWE made him create the account, 5 minutes after his WWE deal ends he's on there promoting his return. Are we thinking AEW? Moxley/Havoc would be something.
  8. Someone needs to push the envelope even further. Harper should show up to Raw next week with a crackpipe.
  9. I don't have kids but I imagine my enjoyment in the product would increase tenfold if I could live vicariously through them.
  10. I take breaks. Following Mania I haven't watched a thing. The burnout is real. It's been proposed before but seasonal breaks would do wonders in regaining some of those disengaged fans that have tuned out over the years - absence makes the heart grow fonder etc.
  11. ''Vince'' has been following them since they were both in the company. Also I miss CM Punk
  12. Women's wrestler court? Seems complicated. Just have Randy shit in their bags.
  13. Doubtful Christian goes in on his own. Doesn't Vince hate his face?
  14. Never make showings of discontent in front of your peers. Subvert the system - including those peers. That's how the wrestling business has worked since it's inception brother. Seriously, if that tweet is true, both of them have some growing up to do.
  15. Revised mine. Batista/HHH and Walter/Dunne make my champions league places.
  16. Don't get me wrong, I don't think Sasha is the miracle worker some make her out to be. Actually, she's really quite sloppy as a face. I'll give her credit though, she has realized—being close friends with the Revival and all—that those in the machine simply cannot win by boo-boo facing (hi Niners) and tweeting cryptic tropes of disarray. The best option to represent her interests is shoving objects into the gears of the machine. It's the only thing that works. Sasha, whatever you think of her is a huge name and would be a big get for a company of AEW's stature so her leverage and bargaining power is enormous. I can't believe the Sasha that was killing it and was perhaps the best heel in wrestling in NXT hasn't had the opportunity to be a fucking heel. Turn her immediately. Heads will turn once the brass in the back realize how good she can actually be.
  17. Undertaker continues to morph into crypt keeper. That hair needs to go man. I will give him props though, he looked in great shape. Those outraged Bayley was the sacrificial lamb for Alexa must not have watched Bayley for the past two years. I am way burned out with wrestling after this weekend. The dynamic of Mania weekend is becoming a little stale. Hopefully AEW can inject something fresh into the scene. I'll plug back in for double or nothing.
  18. Hardly any chatter about Cena apparently being signed on for a match tonight. Tana is in the building..
  19. The general consensus of social media/reddit opinion re: Gargano/Cole is it was everything Meltzer says it is. Personally it wasn't my cup of tea but I'm not going to scorn anyone who did like it. I think I enjoyed the invisible man match from Spring break more, simply due to GCW ref Bryce Remsburg's masterful performance of directing traffic (seriously, go and watch it). This place generally doesn't follow a collectivist way of thinking - for the most part people like what they like without prejudice (unless you're a Randy Orton fan like me) and that's okay.
  20. if watching a million shows this weekend has taught me anything it's I absolutely loathe the ''you deserve it'' chant
