  1. One workout this week, after recovering from the flu. Similar to last week's, but lighter. Really bummed out that this is taking so long to get back on track, but can't really help it. My abs have really taken a hit during these weeks, wearing a tanktop or a sleeveless hoodie covers that up nicely and I'm enjoying the mass. Well, the weight was up to 187 lbs, which isn't that high, but based on how much my six-pack suffered this past month (and a half) you'd think I'd be closer to 200.

  2. This has nothing to do with logic, it's just a "gimme" list, and not very likely at that:

    Pete Dunne

    Mustafa Ali

    Donovan Dijak

    Ricochet

    Tyler Bate

    WALTER

    No idea how to put them into the roster and do them justice, but I'd imagine some people will also jump (back) to WWE, so maybe that's how!

    I finally subscribed to the Fite AEW thing, what are some bangers from the first two-ish years of Dynamite that I should go back and check out?  I started watching regularly around the time of Blood and Guts 1, but watched a couple of times before that, like for the Pac/Omega ironman match.

    Welcome to the Fite crew! I can suggest the 3 matches between Cody and Malakai Black, Darby Allin vs Mox and vs Cody, The Five Labours of Jericho (at least some of them). I heard that there is another match between Adam Page and Brian Cage than the one at Double or Nothing 2021, so that's actually something I should try to check out myself! There's probably a metric ton of stuff that is worth watching, but I have not gotten around to it yet.

    I wonder if Bron ever uses this. I want to see it, but I also fear for anyone taking it and figure it will only happens outside of WWE.

    He must tweak it into something more safe, or he won't be able to use it until his AEW debut as Bronson (or Rex) Steiner. He has done so many other cool Steiner spots that one way or another, he's going to have to at least try it at some point!

    Few too stars are as giving as John Cena. The Rock and Mick Foley are others that come to mind.

    Well, Brian Danielson has been so giving recently, that he's pretty much in a must win situation right now. Garcia will still take one fall minimun and probably made to look like an absolute star before losing. And Garcia WINNING isn't impossible, either.

    Also, when not in a position of power, Ric Flair was very giving at times, to the point that pinning him didn't do shit for anyone, since pretty much anyone could do it.

    So…. How much younger would I have to be to know what a deep is?   20 years?  25?  More?

    From what I gather, judging from all the posts where within the word "derp" has been used, I have come to the conclusion that it is a general term in Oktopi parlance, much like the word "smurf" is in the language of the Smurfs. That's just how I interpret it, though.

    An underrated match, Kenny Omega vs. Christian Cage on the first AEW Rampage. Much better than the All Out rematch.

    Which is saying something, because the All Out match that I just saw for the first time the other day was still a damn good match.

    Swerve/Lee vs. Private Part

    Do you think the champs will get screwed on this one?

     

    Anyway, everything was entertaining. Enjoyed the Beardhausen vs Gunn Club the most. Those boys may end up taking Stokley's card yet!

    Quite the promo by Hook! It was so epic that I memorized it word for word! Let's see if I remember it, here goes: "Yup!" Hah, nailed it!

    Mixed tag and main event was very good times too. It was funny how much JR marked out for "Jane"! I mean, it's not often when he hears themes that he's actually familiar with from his young adulthood.

    I watched Herc/DiBiase to finish out the Main Event show and really, there was no need to.

    • DiBiase wins with a heel rollup to blow off their feud (which started in the Fall of '88) in a thoroughly unimpressive fashion.
    • Not a bad match at all but it's such an afterthought.  Herc apparently did JTTS singles duty after this for about another year and a half (!) before partnering with Paul Roma...as a JTTS tag team.  Again, when you only have a handful of PPVs and so little TV to fill, guys can last a long time as roleplayers. 
    • The height of Herc's WWF career for me was probably the SNME match vs Hogan on a show most famous for 1) the match being booked to look like Herc almost won the belt and 2) the THIS IS WHERE THE POWER LIES promo
    • Why did Herc have a "hand holding a lightning bolt" design on his boots?  That Zeus.

    Next up: Wrestlemania 5! as I split time between Peacock and HIGHSPOTS TV as I thoroughly enjoy BOLA 2022.  Try to guess which of these shows has a guy at ringside who probably sold state secrets to foreign powers! 

    Power and Glory were a heavily pushed heel tag team for a few months, before fizzling out by Wrestlemania VII. It was such a shocking push that Paul Roma won most improved wrestler on PWI year end awards in 1990!

    The lightning bolt thing was probably due to them not knowing their Greek Mythology properly. Which is probably why they missed out on an awesome "no Herc, I'm your FATHER!"-moment between Hercules and Zeus in '89!

    But this was in '97 and they definitely already doing this during their '94 family feud with Bret/Bulldog vs Owen/Neidhart. So that was even more advanced for the time.

    That beautiful jump to the top rope into a back flip and a hip toss spot can be seen in New Foundation vs Orient Express match from '92 Royal Rumble also! In 1992!

    Man, they didn't have those on the stand-alone Network yet when I cancelled it years ago. I would have loved to have watched like, WrestleFest '94 or Bloopers, Bleeps, and Bodyslams again for the same reason as you. There were some that I made my Dad rent so often, it probably would've been cheaper in the long run to just buy 'em.

    Unfortunately, for some weird reason the collection didn't include WrestleFest'94 at least it didn't when I had it (until end of March this year). So, no Steiners vs Harts!

    I bought a bunch of those early collections. The Shawn Michaels DVD collection was the first modern WWE compilation, as I recall. Then came the Foley comp, etc. I jumped on a lot of those early ones, especially the Bret and Savage comps.

    Most of them are on Peacock now, I think. Are any big ones missing?

    I will say that I love the Peacock collection of old Coliseum Video tapes, many of which I rented from Blockbuster or Hollywood Video as a kid. I plan on going through those at some point in the near future. 

    Until 2008 I bought quite a bunch of WWE DVD's after selling off my VHS collection back in 2003. Had a bunch of the same DVD's as you guys, but I tried getting as many compilations as I could. Eddie, Benoit, Rey, HBK, Bret, Steel Cage, Hell in a Cell, Ladder Match, Greatest Superstars of the 80's and a bunch of important PPV's.

    Funnily enough, I haven't watched pretty much anything from the Network that I own on DVD, but I haven't watched a DVD since had the Network (or FITE app now).

    I did watch stuff I used to own on VHS from the Network, but my mission was to watch as much never before seen stuff I possibly could. It was nice to fill the blank spots in my wrestling knowledge from the years '86 to present.

  14. I see which ever team wins next weeks match going to the finals against House of Black, but how that goes is up in the air. How will Malakai's back hold up? If badly, then a title reign may be out of the question. Also, Malakai has so many other things going on, that maybe HOB will not actually reach the finals, after all?

    This all makes sense and I know I may be a minority of 1 here but setting all this up for it just to be more DT vs. HOB would be a massive letdown. 

    Usually, I'd take any opportunity to see PAC vs Matthews some more, but yeah, no. That can't be the finals.

  16. Returned to work this week, got one workout in on Tuesday, started feeling crappy the same evening, getting flu symptoms on Wednesday and now staying home for another day. Not a great start. Well, at least the tests have come up negative, so it is just a common cold.

    Tuesday included upper body stuff as my legs were in full WTF mode after the biking. The biggest stuff was a few reps with 270lbs on the bench. I really didn't need to get sick right now, but on the other hand I'm not at all surprised. I would have even thought that it happened sooner than this.

    Ok, so maybe late next week at the earliest is when I'm able to get to the gym again. Not good.
