  1. I guess another one that read "and if you already did that, don't have them both go down the way!" wouldn't hurt, either? Because even that track record isn't stellar! Anyway, good matches this week, as usual. But Fuego is back to a losing record and Rush is now even 5-5. In his case, this is what happens when basically all your matches are against top level talent!
  2. Shit! That makes the end of this month the 25th Anniversary of my mother passing as well. Quarter of a F'n century ago. That's just, I don't even know what To call it, exactly. Long time ago and still just yesterday! Man! Just wow.
  3. Yeah, this only for a week or two, but that was still a bunch of generic names to familiarize in a short while with no emotional attachment to basically any of them at the time.
  4. Before I got more familar with AEW, I had big trouble distinguishing Sammy Guevara, Kip Sabian and Flip Gordon. I also got confused which was Daniel Garcia and which one was the Not Darius of Top Flight (fuck, I'm totally blanking out on his name NOW)! I mean Dante Martin, dammit!
  5. This reminds me that there was a filler track called "Rage Against The Answering Machine" on some album, I forget the artist and the track wasn't an actual song, but maybe that's the, uh, "answer"?
  6. The opening ladder match was greatly improved by Brian Cage's debut! OJ's antics were good as well. Jungle Boy vs MJF was one of the reasons I wanted to see this show in the first place. The match was spectacular! I wonder what they would come up with if they met again these days? Unfortunately, even in the promised land of 5G internet, the connection on trains is still a bit wonky, so I'll continue this later on.
  7. So they were great before they started?!? Yeah, there's been a few bands like that, I guess?
  8. At least 3. TNT, World and World Women's. Have there been more?
  9. I wonder if Chris' answer will be: "You want a match? Well, you can't have any!" Just like with the pizza?
  10. Speaking of Penelope, I just watched her title match with Shida from Fyter Fest'20 last night and she was showing signs of significant improvement even at that point!
  11. Just bought it! I'll wait until my ticket is checked before I'll begin watching it, though. I'll consider this a birthday present.
  12. Not since '93. Frequent scissoreur until then.
  13. I have a few hours long train ride coming up in two hours. Should I just watch a couple of random Dynamites or should I treat myself with something like Double or Nothing 2020?
  14. We're getting PAC vs Trent Baretta?!? I could just stop right there. Fuego Del Sol just got his record tied for wins and losses, now he's back on the losing side thanks to Moriarty. Willow had a hell of a match with Hayter. Silver vs Rush was a blast. As high impact as you'd expect. But it leads to Rush vs Hangman which is even more exciting news. The opening 3-way was a nice appreciation for AEW original tag team scene. It really does seem like a new era (which is more like the early era). I totally missed the national scissoring day prior to this. I'm not sure if we have that in Finland? I mean our household has like 4-5 pairs of scissors alone, so we might as well have! So 10 vs Andrade plays right into the rumors of Andrade wanting out? Well, this should be interesting. Oh, an Hook going through all of the undercard is good stuff. Next stop, the Trustbusters!
  15. Oh, my bad. Not familiar enough with them. But yeah Ok, attacking poor Cruise's nuts was not honorable.
  16. I thought he smacked him in da nutsack! Or are you talking about some other Scumbag?
  17. And just for the record, at 45, I'm still able to do the HBK nip-up (or kip-up) although it's probably called a Hangman Page or Jungle Boy nip/kip-up these days. But my muscle memory is starting to forget how to do it. Needs more repetition, apparently.
  18. Ok, so this week. 4 workouts 2 upper body days that both included bench. The first one was 6x8x220, plus one more set with 5 reps and the second one was 4x3x264 (plus a couple of partials at the end of each set) then 6×242 and 7×220. On the first leg day I remembered that the squat machine exists and did light but intense quad and calf workout with some light shoulder stuff between sets. This latest one was Trapbar and shrug day. Not the greatest, but started out with 5x251, 3x372, 3x405, 3x471, 1x515 and after failing 568 off the floor and off a pair of 2x4's as platforms, I went on to fail 559 off those as well. Finally, I successfully lifted 537 off the 2x4's. I wasted time by trying to get the bar on top of higher platforms, but it kept rolling off so I moved onto shrugs at that point. The heaviest set was with 328 and the next one with 295 and then lighter stuff. Tomorrow I'll go for a sports massage and plan on spending a good while in sauna later on in the evening. Also, I need to stretch my legs as they feel stiff as fuck right now. Anyway, decent week at any rate.
  19. Damn, not the time to attend AEW shows in person for the time being, huh?
  20. Now I'll be sad if it doesn't happen!
  21. Attacking poor Ian was totally uncalled for! That was not honorable! Bryan will probably make Jericho pay, but I doubt he'll walk away with the title. This means that if Jericho really wants to be true to his word, he'll have to cross paths with Samoa Joe at some point, as well! ...It has come to my attention that the person('s nuts) attacked was in fact Bobby Cruise, not Scumbag Ian. I stand corrected, but the point of this not being honorable still stands. Unlike Bobby Cruise.
  22. Wise words from @Gordlow ! I also found the recent Chris Jericho GQ-interview (it was linked in AEW discussion threads) very fascinating read. He obviously found what works for him. A huge revelation among other things was that apparently, he found out that Fozzy's raider doesn't have to include a giant bottle of Vodka, EVERY night! Well, no shit Chris! Yeah, that definitely helps! You definitely may be onto something, there! I have no room to talk about cramming too many unhealthy calories into my system in their many forms, but I have made the hard choice of having a ridiculously "active lifestyle" in order to get away with it, somewhat. Even with that in place, the psychological toll that the post-summer bloat takes on me (going from your best form of the year to close to worst within a month's time) is kinda rough. Granted, while that month is going on, I wouldn't have it any other way, because without it, I probably couldn't grind away for the other 11 months of the year the way I have for the decade and a half. Gym has been a part of it for a decade, the "active lifestyle" has already been around for nearly two. I have one more workout to go this week and I'll give an update tomorrow. It's been a decent week in the gym and a rough one at work, but I've definitely had worse weeks than this one recently. On the brighter side, even at 45, the post summer bloat seems to still subside after about a month of just grinding away at it. That's when you realize that it is indeed a marathon, not a sprint, even if you spend a part of the year sprinting.
  23. Thank you so much, man! It's been mostly working and sleeping so far, since it's night shift week, but I'll make up for it tomorrow and Saturday. I scheduled a sports massage session for Friday afternoon and I'll visit my cousin over the weekend so we can have an 80's nostalgia session with his vintage album collection. Tonight, I'll probably celebrate by watching this week's Dynamite and eating a lot of food before getting one more heavy work out in this week. Trapbar deadlift and shrugs it is, so the sports messeuse will have something to work with on Friday! For the record, during the night, I didn't feel like 45. Now that it's time to get out of bed, I think I do, actually! Damn. Wish your best friend a happy birthday from me, as well, since you told me we share the same birthday!
