  1. I'd say, the money he commands in salary... Yes it will be brought back tenfold at least in ticket and merch sales. 

    But!  It's like jazz, sometimes you need to listen to the notes that aren't being played.  In this case, who does that $50m you're using on LBJ prevent you from signing or trading for?   

    Because if you can sign LeBron that's great.  But if you can sign LeBron AND Tobias Harris or Obi Toppin...  that's even better.

    Can you see Chyna returning to WWE had she lived? She did quietly apologize to Triple H for some of her antics at Roddy Piper's funeral.

    Was there money to be made?   Then you have your answer. 

    That said, she'd have to have proved that she was clean and sober and had put her past issues behind her.   Had she done so, I could've seen her big comeback being the Manhattan Center Raw from 7-8 years ago.   Would've been fun to have had her being a coach in NXT.

    It's almost like he feels safe, free of significant consequences if he says what's really on his mind. 

    Or that if there are consequences, he can just go get a job shooting Control Your Narrative shows (hey, is that still around?) or other shows where the owner won't care about this type of thing. 

    I thought I heard that CYN died because whoever was funding EC3 either got fleeced or pulled the rug out from everyone and made off like a bandit.

    Either way, Braun is back in WWE, so their prize pig is gone.

  4. For those who haven't seen it yet, Homelander is in Mortal Kombat 1 and all of his fatalities and brutalities are references to the show, even though they didn't get Antony Starr to voice the character:

  5. For what it's worth,  

    a) He's already said playing with his kid is no longer a priority.  Last I saw, he's not getting mocked any higher than end of the 1st round.  Some cases as far as mid-2nd.  He didn't have that great a season last year, so Lebron is certainly not going to wrap up his career playing for, I dunno, Charlotte because his kid is there. 

    b) It's insane for anyone to pay him a max deal at 40.  The Lakers appear to be the only one dumb enough to do so, but if he actually wants one more ring, he's not getting it there. Now for a team that's a piece or two away from serious contention (NY, Minnesota, I'm looking in your direction...) at the MLE, that's a horrifying problem for your opponents to deal with.

    I suspect Secret Wars will be the movie where there’s a core group + supporting group, with the former being people like Wolverine, Tobey’s Spider-Man, variants of Cap & Iron Man, etc.

    Extremely heavy emphasis on the et cetera part...

    I want Secret Wars to be a two and a half hour fight between Deadpool and Madisynn with a Y.

    Abigail Thorn of Philosophy Tube has announced she's in House the Dragon season 2, playing Sharako Lohar.

    Also, the Dunk and Egg show is definitely underway, because here is the kid playing Egg, getting ready:

    Depending on what part of London he's in, I expect him to either punch someone in a Chelsea kit... or a cop.

    I would think Leyland would go in as a Pirate. He did spend ten years there and won manager of the year twice.

    Still not rooting against McJesus

    I'm glad you enjoy making a rescue puppy like Sergei Bobruffsky sad, Mark.  

     

    Also, since it hasn't been mentioned, this is the 5th team with which Corey Perry has reached the Stanley Cup Finals.   That's a new NHL record.  

  10. You're wondering who I am (secret, secret, I've got a secret)

    Well, now that the Devil storyline got flushed down the toilet... I guess Maxie's gotta find something to do.  But who (or whom) will he call out?

    Machine or mannequin? (Secret, secret, I've got a secret)

    Who will face Takeshita for the TNT title?  We'll find out more people tonight! 

    With parts made in Japan (secret, secret, I've got a secret)

    Will some of them be NJPW and CMLL stars with no shots of winning?   Maybe!

    I am thee modern man

    Enjoy the week!
