  1. WM XI is the lowest point in company history, right? What a wretched, forgettable show. Love this series @Dolfan in NYC!
  2. That main event was fun as hell. I am sure many will question a choice of a big crowd brawl in your first show with a crowd given all that's going on. I won't go there - I just enjoyed the match. Sammy made that golf cart look like Brock Lesnar on that bump. Holy shit son. Ending image was top notch.
  3. It's interesting to me seeing both WM 8 and WM 9 have twist endings (for better or worse) and it got me realizing how rare those are nowadays. Rollins at 31 is the last notable one I can think of and that was 5 years ago. And before that, I guess the Rock stuff leading to Miz winning at 27, then before that, hell, a decade earlier with Austin's turn.
  4. JR on today's TIJ. A lot of the usual stuff but Jim and Chris have good chemistry and its Jericho's first wrestling pod in a while so worth a bump.
  5. You just know it's in Vince's DNA to have "the first major attended sporting event since the outbreak". this is kind of what he does. I won't be surprised if he rents out the Citrus Bowl and tires to put 20k fans on one side of the hard cam.
  6. Just give me one segment with Yoko talking shit while Dick Togo sentons some ham and egger and its a win in my book.
  7. I can easily see Russo turning Yoko into a Yakuza boss in 1999 with Kaientai doing his bidding. That actually sounds fucking awesome
  8. I’m ready for Jerry Jones’s WWE. Unless you meant Shahid Khan showing up on a live Raw from Club La Vela. In all seriousness I can see a sell to Disney or Fox happening.
  9. Shout out to Bill Watts in the category of “promoter/booker on color commentary to help get his stories over”. He was great at that. I also will never understand the pre-internet dirt sheet crowd view of Gorilla as terrible. When I first discovered this, I thought well maybe I was a kid and it was all nostalgia and he sucked, but even watching now he’s really good. Never understoood it.
  10. Seems like they’ve legitimately given Apollo a few “brass ring, pal” spotlight opportunities dating back to the Black match but the dude’s Charlie Hass-esk personality stylings and the empty arena setting have created this tesseract of charisma-less nihilism for 30 minutes every week.
  11. I’m thinking that they’ve shot themselves into a work and have silently hired him back. If this was a work the entire time then Spud is the greatest acting wrestler alive in that Twitter video a few days ago.
  12. Jericho during the Omega match was amazing. Omega sure does give a lot of offense to jobbers, but Jericho sold it well.
  13. We are presently underselling the revelation of Miz wearing a mouth guard in favor of Bix nonsense
  14. Honestly Vince should just let him keep it for the season and have the Bucs use it as their turnover chain or whatever. More pub than that belt would get you otherwise.
  15. The Viking Raiders thing. I meant WTF. Humanizing characters is one thing, but this would be like showing Ric Flair driving an Oldsmobile in 1985 singing about how he isn't really a rich jetsetter but he sure does love that lifestyle.
  16. I thought Liv/Ruby was really snug. They were laying it in. Nia Jax has to be the worst pro wrestler on a major roster. It’s just so bad. That turnbuckle spot was a near disaster.
  17. It’s fun to try and line a power level up with a gimmick and find a decent match. Taker is The Spectre. Basically God tier when fully powered; only shows up occasionally.
  18. Probably the best Nasties non-garbage match. Best and most historically influential match overall is probably the Spring Stampede 1994 deal with Cactus and Payne.
  19. Next Mutoh match he needs to do a turnbuckle 10 punches spot with 4, 8, 15, 23, 42
  20. Man I hope somewhere all this stuff is being secretly saved and 20 years from now there’s going to be a tabletop book of concept art for 50 years of Vince’s coke fueled crazy ass ideas. Bret Hart as a hobo ex-long haul truck driver. Sid as an astronaut. Roadblock as a short order chef.
  21. They really need to book it like Cannonball Run where each competitor develops a strategy. Do you sprint? Do you camp? Does Daniel Bryan buy some PF Flyers?
