The AEW belt has been nicked. Many jokes being had in the AEW thread. I particularly liked @Raziel’s number one suspect.

I can't remember now what was the origin of Foley's broken Winged Eagle hardcore title?  Was this the same title that Mr. Perfect took a hammer to?

Wasn't that basically Leo Krueger's gimmick in FCW?

Oh...yeah, on second thought maybe I don't want that at all.

I get the mindset behind this, but I disagree with it on a principle that it just doesn’t work in almost any match that doesn’t involve Paul London, it just makes the title seem unimportant. The funny thing is by late 2003 Xavier was one of their best undercard workers, but the booking had already given up on him.

Xavier vs. John Walters Fight without Honor from Final Battle 2003 is a seriously underrated match. 

My first ROH show happened to be when Joe won the title from Xavier. My friend had asked me if I wanted to go to this indy show in Philly because Raven was on it. Thus began my ROH fandom.

No that was an urban legend. A private collector has the Mr Perfect belt. Im almost positive I've seen it for sale in the last 10 or 11 years

Well looks like it is official now

Another WWE draft will be taking place in five weeks.

As noted in a recent Observer about some roster changes with the SmackDown move to FOX and the company wanting to go back to talent exclusivity on each brand, WWE has tentatively decided on dates for two new draft shows.

The draft will start on the SmackDown episode in Las Vegas on Friday, October 11, as a way to try and maintain the expected big audience of the FOX premiere one week earlier.

The Raw draft will then take place on Monday, October 14 in Denver.

This is part of a series of moves that will be made to freshen up both shows both with talent and in other ways during October.

SmackDown debuts on FOX on Friday, October 4. The show is taking place in Los Angeles, with the theme of it being SmackDown's 20th anniversary celebration. Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, Lita, Mick Foley, Booker T, Hulk Hogan, Trish Stratus, Goldberg, Jerry "The King" Lawler, Mark Henry, Ric Flair, and Sting are advertised for the premiere episode.

What better way to start a fresh, new era than by bringing out all your favourite stars from the past.

Well to be fair, the past is the only place there are stars.

Goodbye wildcard.

Only 24/7 title and women tags holders will still able to cross brand.

Wouldn't be surprised if the 24/7 title is exclusive to RAW, since it was a USA idea and that goofy shit doesn't really jive with the "sports" style that FOX supposedly wants.

Was wondering if they would do another draft. It feels weird again to happen so soon, but its not like the other one meant much due to the Wild Card shit. I hope the Revival or Orton get move so they can still team together.

All the concern trolling going on over Jericho's lifestyle on social media is pretty terrible.

I'd assume with NXT now being on USA and an official "third brand" that they will be involved in this new Draft. There have been guys moved from NXT to the "main rosters" in the past, but now with them on USA, I can see some RAW and SDL guys being moved to NXT this time around as well.

It's not that bad here but I'll admit to being a bit concerned about the guy.  He's lived a rock star lifestyle due to not only WWE but Fozzy and I can't say I'm terribly surprised that he does what he does.  I'm not going to demonize him because we all have our vices.  But I'm hoping that he can at least turn that reputation down a bit considering he'll be on a weekly show again.  Besides, it's not like it affects his wrestling that I can tell so it could be much worse.

I think that's all much ado about nothing. Social media isn't always an accurate description of one's life lol

At least he doesn’t appear to drive himself around I’ll give him that. But that dude is going to drink himself blind one day.

Jericho seems to want me to laugh at a walking midlife crisis. So laugh I will. 

Pretty much. His perma bloodshot and glassy eyes are a bit concerning but whatever.
