Io Shirai has done a running SSP

When did she do that? I don't recall it.

Its probably from Senjo. Its against the Kanari sisters (Dash & Sachiko). I know I have seen one or two of their matches, but I'm not sure I've seen that one since I didn't recall the running SSP.

I bitch about Cyndi not being in the hall every year.

I don't follow Chikara, but I do like the wacky teams they come up with for King of Trios. I think I just discovered my new favorite team from this year's event.

Listening to this week's E&C Pod got me thinking: What would be the best scenario to go about transitioning Spud to an in-ring role in the near future? I'd hope they wouldn't go the "heel GM opportunistically inserts himself into the title scene" route, because 1) I'm over most heel authority figures, and 2) Baron Corbin seems to be on this trajectory on Raw. 

Considering Spud is still smaller than the bulk of the 205 Live roster, I'd be keen on a shitheel taking liberties and pushing their luck for a few months before Spud finally has enough and stands up for himself. Gulak's strong personality would make him great for the role. Alternatively, Buddy Murphy would probably make Spud look like a million bucks right out of the gate.

I just know I miss that guy having more to do. 

EDIT: Didn't realize this occurred earlier in the week:

I'm more than happy to keep paying my WWE Network subscription if it means I get to see Lio Rush get a mouthful of Spud.

See last week on Impact, they had a Mexican Death Match between Pentagon Jr and Jerrito Saggscito*, and when they got to the bit of the death match where usually Abyss would bring out the bag of thumbtacks**, instead they bought out a bag full of pieces of Lego. Is that the first time Lego has been used as an international object in the Wrestling?  And if so, why did nobody think of it before now? It's relatable, everyone knows it hurts to stand on a bit of Lego so logically getting slammed on some would hurt too. 

* Sami Callihan. He's like a little Jerry Saggs. Although he looks less like him now he's bald.

** Which he would do at least twice a month for over ten years, until it meant absolutely nothing.

Legos have definitely been used on the indies before, but that’s the first time I’ve seen them used on TV. I don’t watch everything though. 

Thanks for hitting the meatball, Eddie. I knew I could count on you.

ISW has done Lego death matches for a few years. This match was from 2011. I think there may be ones earlier too.

Pretty sure the Drake Younger/Sami match from PWG's All Star Weekend 2013 had Lego involved in it.

Well, I'm getting my $39.99 back for ALL IN. I'll watch the replay on New Japan World.

and for no real reason, I got back the $13.99 I spent on Joey Janela's Lost in New York

There is actually a wrestler named Shitty. And he isn't the guy holding his phone in the right corner of that screencap. I've heard it all now...

ISW also had a Lego match in 2008. I thought there was one earlier than that one i posted before.

Fun post. I think this be the only time Finn Balor is anti LEGO.

Definetly happened in a wXw Death Match tournament in Germany between Thumbtack Jack and Adam Polak. Quite a few years back, though.

I hate to be a bad guy but WHEN THE FUCK is NJPW world putting up ALL IN?   I can watch it tonight if they put it up.  If they don't then I'll probably just read the results.
