Buddy Murphy is challenging Roman to a match on SmackDown. 

I can dig that. I was surprised at how little of a height difference there was between Murphy and Roman. Also, Jesus, standing up to Roman, Murphy looks bigger than I thought. I'm used to seeing him against other 205 dudes, but he looks jacked liked Benoit.

I might tune in for that, I've been pretty high on Buddy (and Cedric) since I saw them tear it up together on a house show last year. His potential is somewhat limited by having a cat's name, but he is legit freaking great in the ring.

Love how they build these young stars before their big chances. One is a thief who beat up a janitor, and stole his identity. The other, a toothless kangaroo riding snitch.

Wow. I guess they’re gonna keep rolling legends out to “sign off” on Seth Rollins as champ. It won’t work, because it’s Seth Rollins, but it’s funny to me that they’re gonna keep doing that.

Having flashbacks to when an unheralded Buddy Murphy took on then-NXT Champ Aleister Black on the Coconut Loop last year and tore the house down. Hopefully he and Roman get the time to do it again on a much-larger scale.

They should demote Murphy back down to NXT for not responding with "I'm not your Buddy, Guy."

Also, Rollins should be revealed as the person trying to kill Reigns.

Nearly perfect. You should just swap the Seth pic for the cross eyed goofy one and it would be *chef kiss*

That would be tremendous. I had thought about Seth being jealous of Roman sharing the WWE 2K20 cover and other PR moments with Becky. There would be nothing happening between them, but Seth's warped mind went there and his vindictive side comes out.

I'd like it to be the Usos. 

Gives Roman something to do for a while, gets the Usos away from the titles. Could run a multiple month program of Roman getting different guys to team with him. Cedric, Joe, Rikishi, if time permits - the Rock. Could even then do the Rollins turn from there if need be.

We don't need a Rikishi match in 2019.

Had a moment of clarity last night when I realized I was following results on Twitter for a show I don’t watch, by a company I haven’t supported for 12 years and fully intend to never watch again, and logged off.

What do you all do when you’re burnt out on wrestling? DIFFICULTY LEVEL: It is almost 100% of my pop culture consumption anymore, even when I’m not watching.

Is it wrestling in general you're burnt out on, or current WWE? Watching old stuff usually helps me to rediscover what I love about wrestling.

Ignore new wrestling.

Watch old wrestling.

There's new old footage popping up every week from all around the world, much of it back from an era where everything wasn't so meta, where the narrative spoke for itself and everything wasn't self-aware and winking all the time.

I stopped watching WWE in 2007 after the fake Donald Trump/fake Rosie O’Donnell March and swore they would never get a dime from me again. Since then, no PPVs, no Network, no nothing. I didn’t come back for Daniel Bryan’s finest hour, so there is nothing they can do to bring me back. And they already own most of wrestling’s past, so that’s a no go too.

You have absolutely no need to watch the wwe brand.  Get to know NJPW world as I have.  That along with AEW is more than enough wrestling.  The G1 has had more excellent bouts in less than a month than what I assume wwe has in at least a years run.

I dropped out even earlier with the Triple Haightch main event run.  Took a look in with the ecw ons ppvs and then left again after week 1 of the revival ecw tv.  I’m sure there’s been some good runs in the 15 years I missed, but there is so much more out there.  Ever taken a deep dive on All Japan Mid 90s or Mid-south in the 80s?  And those are the most obvious.  But for modern times, get into the thick of it with new japan.

That’s the problem. I can’t get hyped up for any of it. I’m basically Team AEW not because I believe the hype, but because I’m THAT anti-WWE and want these guys to win the war. I only really follow CHIKARA and it’s adjacent indies in PA/NJ, but looking outside that sphere just sounds so... tiring.
