    SRS pretty much confirms that AEW decided not to renew Swole's contract but allowed her to present it as a mutual parting to preserve her dignity. In her podcast, she said several times that she had left of her own volition when in fact she was let go. Given that she lied about the circumstances of her departure, none of what she said about AEW can be taken at face value.

    It wouldn't be the first time a wrestler went into business for himself at WK. At WK7, Low Ki dressed up as Agent 47 for his IWGP junior title match without clearing it with the company beforehand and got fired as a result.

    If you want to talk about toxic Twitter behavior, look at all the people calling Britt Baker a racist because she RTed Tony's tweet. Speaking of Britt, let's remember that Swole beat her on PPV. It obviously would have been a much better look if the POC on the roster had trumpeted the company's track record on diversity and inclusion while Tony remained silent. Still, I can't blame him for feeling burned if they reached an agreement with Swole to paint letting her go as her own decision only for her to throw the company under the bus. She had plenty of opportunities to get over and just couldn't deliver the goods.

    WWE TV 01/03 - 01/09 New year, old habits

    Let's get real, though. Brock/Lashley is guaranteed to have a cop-out finish. Most likely Roman costing Brock the match to get their program back on track.

    So Big E doesn't get an automatic rematch and has to compete in a fatal 4-way to earn a title shot. That doesn't bode well for his future main event status.

    Spears had his chance with the Cody feud. It took every bell and whistle in the book to get their match at All Out into "pretty good" territory, so that likely marked the end of any serious consideration of giving him a significant push. Midcard goon is the perfect role for him.

    It should be remembered that three of AEW's biggest homegrown stars (Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, Orange Cassidy) are guys who almost never talk. And unlike Adam Page and MJF, none of them were specifically groomed for main event stardom. Their pushes came after they got over organically. Someone like Moriarty has the potential to do likewise.

    WWE DAY ONE

    The fact that Big E was the one who ate the pin when the very nature of a multi-man match allows you to protect the champion by having someone else take it tells you everything you need to know about where he stands in the pecking order. Obviously you want to hold off on Lesnar/Lashley, but Owens and Rollins are right there. On the bright side, at least Raw has some star power now.

    That'll put some butts in seats.

    How is this a bad thing? Pro wrestling should be a field where the ones with creativity and drive rise to the top.

    I'll save everyone the trouble of clicking through a bunch of archived pages. Note that 425-401, 325-301, 275-51, and 75-51 are missing because the Wayback Machine doesn't have those pages archived.

    AEW Dynamite - December 29, 2021

    I was really impressed by Cargill's leg selling. That's not the kind of thing that comes naturally for green workers, especially ones pushed as unstoppable monsters. Hell, even most experienced wrestlers are trash at it. So her in-ring instincts are solid even if she is a work in progress.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Charlotte didn't "resort to" an inside cradle. She reversed Toni's cradle into one of her own. In fact, the opposite is closer to the truth. Toni was the one resorting to desperation pin attempts because Charlotte was kicking her ass at will. Of course, that led to Charlotte beating her at her own game. It was quite the impressive demolition of a babyface challenger. And for the record, I don't dislike Roman and would love to see him in a promotion that wasn't a sinking ship. I just don't buy into him as the undisputed top guy. If you told me a year ago that I'd be way more into Kenny Omega as a worker and performer in a year's time, I would've said you were nuts. But here we are.

    Charlotte is the female Roman. Getting her over at all costs is the goal and everyone else has to be sacrificed along the way. Toni also had the accent working against her. Kevin Dunn probably sent her to catering as soon as he heard her speak.

    AEW Rampage - Holiday Bash - December 25, 2021

    The one where he unironically cast himself as an 80s-style flag-waving patriotic babyface in a feud with an Englishman.

    There is literally nothing heelish about Cody's act except for the crowd reaction. Look at the past decade and a half of WWE to see how this sort of thing plays out. When someone the audience views as a heel is pushed as a dominant babyface, more often than not it damages if not outright kills the heat of whoever he feuds with.

    AEW Rampage - Holiday Bash - December 25, 2021

    Get it right, people. His name is HOOK. Like MF DOOM, just remember all caps when you spell the man name.
  18. Toni was in the proper position, so she can't take the blame for this one.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    The story has always been that VKM wanted Backlund to dye his hair and turn heel for a program with Hogan. He refused and was fired. In a possibly related story, Bill Eadie has claimed that he was the original choice for the Iron Sheik transitional champion role, but Backlund refused to drop the belt to him because he didn't have an amateur background. I don't know if I buy that, though.

    RIP Leatherface/Super Leather

    In the US at least, he's better known for his WWF run as Corporal Kirchner. There was a bizarre story where the WWE website reported his passing in 2006. When he notified them that he was still alive, they pulled the story but never issued a retraction.

    Have Gargano be the third judge. He can attack Hangman after the match and then stare at his hands and wonder why he's so violent.
  23. So has Veer Mahaan made it to Raw yet?
  24. The babyface tries to launch a sneak attack with a weapon and gets outsmarted by the heel. Just another day in the WWE Universe.
