    I've always avoided that show since Bully Ray is one of the hosts and the other is Mark Henry, who also has questionable opinionz 4 u regarding how "soft" locker rooms have gotten.  Henry was also always the guy WWE trotted out to attack any black wrestler who dared suggest there may be some bullshit going on.  Neither guy has anything to say that's worth more than they oxygen they're stealing to do it.

    I agree entirely with your assessment of the grossness, but FWIW Henry was quoted as saying he 100% disagrees with Bubba on this, so at least there's that

  2. I cannot emphasize enough how great that Mox promo was. I loved the way he delivered "I'm thirsty"

    Sting continues to be one of my favorite things about the show. I can only assume he's a freak of nature at this point. It feels so good to see him killing it out there, especially in DC (which was teed up so well by Caster with the Starrcade line)

    I guess we'll be seeing The Butcher a lot more because apparently Keith Buckley went off the deep end and cut of all communication with the rest of Every Time I Die, so Andy and the others have announced a breakup. I was a huge ETID fan for a good while and still think their music rules, but I haven't followed them for the last few years. It's a huge bummer to hear the bad news about Keith, dude always seemed really intelligent and was a great frontman, but from accounts I'm seeing he's cut off not only his longtime bandmates but even his family ☹️

    Really shitty. Their new one stacks up with anything they've ever put out. Was hoping they worked it out since they played their annual Christmas show in Buffalo, but looking like it's not to be. They've had a great run.

  4. Loved the opener and the main event, women's match was decent if not overbooked slightly with the dissention stuff. Lethal vs Starks is a super interesting match to look forward to. How'd you guys feel about the Acclaimed video? We were split 50/50 here

  5. I've got tickets to a Dynamite in February that I bought pre-Omricon and I'm definitely a little sketchy on it now. I bought the ticket insurance figuring that if things were bad enough to not go, then it'd probably be postponed, but I didn't count on this weird limbo where we just go to work and go shopping and pretend everything is cool.

  6. I say this about at least one match every week but Trent/Cole could be a sneakily good one. I avoid spoilers so no one correct me if wrong, but I could totally see Trent going over, maybe via shenanigans maybe not. They've been getting their asses handed to them in most of these segments. Obviously, this isn't the blowoff, but I could see a little evening of the score.

  7. This was a good, albeit weird at times show. I loved the first two matches (particularly Punk/Wardlow because some of that reminded me of Bret/Diesel) but wish they weren't back to back, just because the stories they were telling were kind of similar. I'd have maybe put the Elite/Best Friends segment between the two of them, or Shida/Deeb.

    Speaking of Shida/Deeb... man. Was someone hurt for real here, or taking a vacation or something? I was really looking forward to that.

    Not that I minded, but I wonder if they're trying to bring in less talent to shows due to COVID or something, because I noticed we had a lot of people in multiple segments, as well as more pretapes than usual.

     

  8. I don't know if anyone caught that ad for Go Big Show where the guy is covered in flame-retardant gel solving a Rubik's cube, but I guess we know where Cody got that idea.

    I personally like that and think it's a great idea. They have enough content spread throughout YouTube that I think a topic of its own is viable.

    That's a great point that I was about to make as well - we could make it a YouTube catch all and cover Road To... and BTE there too

    I got news for ya, Kyle O'Riely would beat the absolute shit out of Sheamus in a real fight. Muy tai / jujitsu trained athletes are always gonna be able to tie weight lifters up in a pretzel. Sheamus is portrayed as this bar fighting hooligan character. But it's a character. He's a body guy that would gas out quick in a shoot fight setting. I say this as someone who agrees with you and doesn't really like watching O'Riley. I wasn't a fan of Bobby Fish either, until his AEW run. Something about the singles matches he's been working have been clicking for me in a way his matches never used to. But yeah man, Sheamus is built for show not for go. So your eye test is failing you here.

    I'm not getting involved with the rest of the ongoing conversation re: size, but I do wanna quote you here because I agree so big on Fish. He's really clicked for me too. If hes had a better singles match than the Sammy match, I'm not saying it doesn't exist, but it's nothing I've seen (though admittedly, I was never the hugest ROH guy). I think a change of scenery will be good for both of those guys in the long run.

    The international versions of things like Superstars and Action Zone went from being "Squash matches plus a TV main event" to "Squash matches plus Raw highlights" to "Raw highlights plus one JTTS match, usually featuring JTG or Tyson Kidd" to "Raw recap" pretty quickly. 

    I've said this before about house shows, but the death of the C-show is another thing from prior eras that has saddened me with it's disappearance. So many of my weekends as a kid were spent with Superstars, Worldwide, Pro, Shotgun, etc. It's nice having the Darks and (now again) the NWA to kind of fill that void a little, but it loses some charm not being syndicated on random local stations.

    building a women's tag team division would be a good way for them to get more women ring/TV time per week.

    though it will of course make me retroactively sore that they didn't bring Jessie and Cassie in to be the backbone thereof.

     

    Yeah, adding a secondary women's title instead of a women's tag made no sense to me from the jump. I guess one could argue tag divisions are inherently more expensive, but they're going to have to probably hire a bunch more women to sustain both divisions

  13. Hard agree with you @DEANand @Curt McGirtabout Dustin grabbing us early on with the acting blown up. I thought that was a really nice touch, great match. 

    edit: part of me wishes we could've gotten a Dustin win, to set up Cody/Dustin II. I don't know if they could come close to the first, but I loved that one. Sure, it wouldn't have the same "I need my brother" emotional depth, but Cody utilizing more heelish tactics this time would be an interesting enough twist on the formula to make up for it, IMO.

    Yeah, I really hope the next show is 2 hours and more clash-like. Like a named Dynamite basically. This feels pretty random now other than Riho and Britt.

    Agreed - on a side note, while i like both ladies a lot, the build to this one has me more interested in the eventual Britt vs Hayter

  15. I hate to sound ungrateful, but I really wish this were a two hour show. Starks vs Sydal has some real banger potential, hopefully Starks is comfortable with his neck and good to go. Again, I am begging for some direction with the FTW title, but glad to see it featured here

    It is KTB (Kyle the Beast)

    And yes he worked a couple of Dark matches

    I'm sure he's fine and all, but that name makes me think his gimmick is "Bad kid on a dirt bike, drinking a can of Monster, angry he's been banned from Call of Duty for using racial ephitets"
