    WWE TV 08/12 - 08/18 Poop every other day to stop global warming

    Who would be in the group? I wouldn't be opposed to the idea. Maybe an "Evolution" style grouping of women. Medusa, Charlotte Flair, and perhaps two women from NXT with tons of upside that are not top draws right now, but have amazing potential.

    Ring of Honor Wrestling

    I couldn't imagine anyone breaking down the doors to work with the NWA. Does the NWA bring anything to the table? Aldis, Storm, Drake, and Kay are great players to fill out the bench, not to start. If the NWA really wants to stand out they need to look completely different that everything else. Super indie with a TV deal isn't going to work in 2019 as ROH and Impact have shown.

    WWE TV 07/22 - 07/28 RAW Reunion! Candice Michelle is back!!!

    So what are the WWE reunion showisms? - A backstage segment that breaks into dancing or some other 'entertaining' hijinx that is interrupted by Ron Simmons. - Wrestlers and personalities from the past standing on stage and waving to the fans. - WWE showing the same video packages and photographs they do for all of the reunion/anniversary shows. - Stone Cold giving someone a stunner. - The Boogeyman will scare someone. - A current team/wrestler that is lukewarm (at best) or completely cold (which is most likely) will job to one or more members of the past roster. - A random Diva segment in the back where the women are talking and that is used to setup a match between two current workers. A match we have seen a million times. - Lilian Garcia will perform ring announcing duties for one or more matches while the current ring announcer enjoys Titus Catering's Monday special. Am I missing anything?

    Tony dedicated an entire WHW episode to his time in WWF. IIRC, he enjoyed and only really left due to money. There might have been some other factors, I can't remember at this time, but overall it was a positive experience for Tony.

    WWE TV 07/15 - 07/21 Flipping burgers to become Ambassador

    Rollins winning would be absolutely terrible. Big E. vs. Brock Lesnar is the only correct outcome.

    I like the approach of a little something for everyone. Doing that, starting out, will give the company a good gauge of what is and isn't working. I've enjoyed both shows thus far. My biggest complaint with AEW right now is the focus on 'having good matches'. It's the same complaint I have with WWE. The wrestling has ventured away from a struggle and more into silly choreography up and down the card. That's "fine" with me. However, I would hear the wrestler state that they want to win matches, beat people up, and cash checks. MJF did an interview backstage after FF and in that interview he mentioned that whenever the fans see him, they will see an amazing match. Not him coming out with the win or humbling his opponents. An amazing match. Keeping tracks of wins and loses is a good concept, but the wrestlers will need to care as well and that should be reflected in promos. Having one or two guys on the roster who wants to 'steal the show' is all well and good, but everyone cannot cosplay as Dolph Ziggler. Someone has to be there for championships and checks.

    WWE TV 7/1 - 7/7 The Return of the Return of Heyman and Bischoff

    We are approaching the nine o'clock hour and Raw has been a hit thus far. Drake Maverick and Ron Killings interactions, to no one's surprise, have been gold all night.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    I would love for Impact to sign 6 guys to long term contracts and really work to build the company around them. Hopefully Cross stays around for a bit.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    Salina is not my cup of tea, but I can see why some find her attractive. A bigger question, has MLW created any bonafide stars since its return? I am talking about people who can be considered originals as it doesn't seem as Martinez, Brazil, Reed, etc. have taken off in any real capacity.

    I would love to live in the ROH and WWE Wrestling Bubble for just 6 months. I want to see how the shit sausage is made. This has gone beyond 'smarks being smarks'. If you look at WWE stock, Saudi show money, and the NBC & Fox billion dollar deals-- everything is fine. I would love for Vince to do an 'undercover boss' episode with the fans. Put on makeup, etc. and go sit with regular fans for all the Raws and Smackdowns for 3-6 months. Sit in the cheap seats. Make small talk and take mental notes. I think it will change the product (for the better?).

    WWE Super Showdown 2019: Come for the Wrestling, but no stay for the executions

    As always, all the best Mr. TK! I'm surprised WWE didn't even attempt to gimmick the ring like they did for Mania 29 (?). Outside of Taker wearing his usual gimmick, I am surprised others decided wearing all black was the right call for the evening. Ziggler wearing black vinyl tights in 100 degree heat while receiving zero level of interest from the crowd is everything you need to know about 2019 Dolph Ziggler. The overall tone of the show was set once Seth finished his routine entrance only to remove his shirt and begin making ouchie faces. Putting smiles on the face of every member of the WWE Universe > selling bruised ribs that are a huge part of a world title angle. I thought the temperature would keep HHH and Orton to a snug 10 minute match. Nope! HHH is going to HHH. Almas and Balor working hard to zero reaction was a sight to see. And the main event was something else. There is no way either of those guys left the ring without some level of a concussion. A shoot headbutt into the post, a shoot brainbuster, and a shoot Tombstone. Goldberg is now crying on Twitter.

    WWE chooses Nattie and Alex out of the entire WWE women's roster? Might have come down to who was willing to go.

    Bryan, Truth, Kofi, and who else? Everyone is cold. Kofi is cooling as WWE doesn't have any real plans for him expect for him to celebrate his title April win during the month of June. It's slim pickings.

    Employees or contractors? Serious question. I'd be shocked if CFO left. JJ has already reached peak carny levels, so I highly doubt he is leaving and already has a job waiting for him in AEW. Dutt, Diavari, Abyss, Pearce, TJ, and others are pretty much locked in. Ryan Ward would be a shocker, but I can't think of anyone else.

    Jon Moxley on Talk is Jericho

    Moxley becoming a "Cancer Truther" and taking cues from Meltzer's Twitter antics would have been both amazing and completely sad to see.
