    there's probably a good line between matches where announcers actively shitting on the match and the countless WCW Worldwide matches where the announcers just talked about Nitro angles for the entire match

    I love how it would be some random Nitro first hour and you’d get Juventud vs Malenko or whatever and the announcers would start the match by talking about the NWO but by the time the match was over Tony, Brain and/or Dusty were marking out over what was going on in the ring

    I want to see the phone call scene from The Constant, but with Randy and Kim Orton. 

    Ok an episode of Randy’s consciousness drifting back and forth between 2005 and 2022 would be the shit. Chilled-Out Dad Randy would be so, so confused.

    Wild rumor that one of the first members added to the Wyatt 6 will be.......................  Colin Delaney.   Odd choice if true. 

    The Wyatt 6 should totally be a rif on the Oceanic 6 and a band of characters from WWE continuity yore that seemingly fell off the planet because Ben Linus moved the island or whatever 

    Like it starts off with Mike Sanders or Jackson Andrews telling Blitzkreig “we have to go back!”

  4. I don’t think wrestling characters need to be relatable in order to be successful (nothing is more pro wrestling than larger than live cartoon characters) but Hangman might have the most relatable and well-developed character for his time, in a long time. 

    Anxious millennial that holds his standard of manliness to the John Wayne movies that he grew up watching with his dad. And he’s not there (because none of us are ever there) but dammit, he’s gonna keep trying.

    He just fits right in there. Like The Dude, in the early 90’s.

  5. OC has to finally win this one, right? He’s where Jungle Boy was before the tag title win…you can only lose the big one so many times, or lose to Pac a third time in a row

  6. Flip side of this, which the Good Brothers got me thinking about: how un-over do you have to be in your original run to NOT get the surprise return pop? Fans love surprises!

    Like WWE should put this to the test and have Charlie Haas come out to confront Gable, or Braden Walker as a mystery tag partner

  7. I think Bray will be fine so long as they pick a lane. Like, the Shield six man is the best thing Wyatt’s ever done, and the Firefly Fun House match is the second best thing. Choose one of those two paths - what doesn’t work is having the Fiend mixing it up between the ropes or even worse being in the world title picture.

  8. Trent is so awesome. Really the sleeper glue guy of AEW for years now.

    On the flip side, and I hate to pile on the guy, but Pillman, woof. He’s the least talented guy on this roster, right? Maybe besides Brock Anderson. He’s been through hell and seems like a great guy, but he just doesn’t have it. Not yet anyway.

    i don't know that i've ever seen her wrestle. What are some of her best matches? 

    and how long has she been out? hasn't it been a number of years? scary coming back after such a major injury and so much time away.

    vs Emma in NXT is the big one. Though, like a movie that was groundbreaking for it’s time before the methods created were later mastered, the Bayley/Sasha/Charlotte/Becky stuff blows it away so I’m not sure how hindsight will treat it.

    How bout Athena's bloody murdering diving cutter? I think I kinda sorta agree on the springing cutter hate, but I still like them all better than Dante Martin's nose dive as a finisher. I mean unless the point of it is to injure the catching arm of his opponent? 

    Athena’s blockbuster is the shit. 

    Yeah all these springboard cutters are hot garbage though

    Not undermining Regal's position, but I would actually submit Chris Jericho for consideration also. (Probably depends on how long you want to stretch the arc between comedy/serious, but I think he works.)

    Relatively straightforward young cruiserweight > Ralphus/Man of 1,004 Holds shenanigans > more "comedy" (...I guess your mileage will vary given some of the misogynistic stuff that got thrown Stephanie's way in the Attitude era) from Y2J > eventually getting back to serious, suit-wearing heel who punched HBK's wife in the face. Always in a featured role no matter what. Nowadays it's like he ping pongs every other week and is still one of the biggest names in the industry.

    We’ve been talking a lot of Jericho recently so I’ve been doing a bit of a retrospective. Man, the sheer volume of stuff. Just amazing.

    Like we haven’t even mentioned JeriShow on here and that was a tremendous bit of business between the buddy cop-vibe backstage bits, the mashup theme and Show punching dudes in the face.
