    WrestleMania 36

    Punk was an actual match. So it's more than two but fewer than a dozen.

    That sucked.

    I hate these all-finisher Lesnar matches. He's capable of so much better.

    That was phenomenal. As with the boneyard, so many leaps past a straight match between those two.

    Even Meltzer, an Edge mark, called this a "failure of the editing process at a level I've never seen before."

    The art of brawling is lost in most of modern wrestling. They should all be forced to watch tapes of '80s Puerto Rico with their eyes pinned open.

    Edge-Orton is the drizzling shits. This show has gone straight downhill since the excellent opener.

    WrestleMania 36

    I was pretty skeptical upon seeing the initial wave of enthusiasm about the boneyard match, but that shit was a hoot. Overall show was far from a disaster. The elite workers such as Bryan and Asuka stood out even more in the empty-arena setting. The Becky-Baszler match hit the right notes. I skipped the ladder match and about half of Rollins-Owens, and I probably won't go back to those. But I left happy enough that I'll watch "live" tomorrow night. Went back to watch Cesaro-Gulak and that was terrific while it lasted. They came up with some really inventive counters while keeping things nasty.

    AEW Full Gear

    I went to the show and did not see or hear a lot of negative reaction to Omega-Moxley in our section. There was a lot of, "Oh God, what are they going to do next?" But they didn't lose the crowd, despite the length and the kickouts. Though it's not my favorite kind of wrestling, I appreciated their commitment. They envisioned a particular kind of spectacle and went all in to create it. The show as a whole was quite good. My 10-year-old went with me at the last minute (I was not expecting to give him a crash intro to death matches, but so it goes), and though he's not hugely into wrestling, he stayed engaged for the entire four hours.

    NJPW G1 Climax 2019

    Ishii-White was easily MOTN for a generally unremarkable Day 4. They're a natural match-up -- Mr. Bullshit vs. Mr. No Bullshit. I didn't mind the Moxley finish in the sense that I think he's a guy who should be able to end matches unexpectedly. But I agree he and Cobb left something on the table. I don't hate Taichi, but that match never grabbed me and never felt like a main event, despite the surprise ending. Still waiting for the breakout show or match in this tournament.

    NJPW G1 Climax 2019

    Night 3 was not as good as it looked on paper. Ospreay and Sanada didn't have much chemistry, despite their superior athleticism. Have no idea what put KENTA-Tanahashi in MOTY territory for NintendoLogic. Didn't think it carried the intensity needed for that, though it was fine. Okada-ZSJ was MOTN for me. I liked the decision to streamline their usual formula, and I always feel Sabre's style makes it harder for Okada to revert to his generic layout. I also believed either guy could win. I'm still waiting for a match to kick this G1 to the next level. So far, we're cruising along in the middle gears.

    AEW Fight For The Fallen

    That match had plenty of good stuff in it, but it was too damn long.

    Absolutely. Way more fitting, interesting than any of his late-period WWE guises.

    AEW Fight For The Fallen

    Big picture, this show has not really held my interest. Hoping the main event sends us out on a high note.

    Good combination of action and character in that six-man.
