    WWE TV 3/23-3/29 Who Cares? Edition

    Was there actually a bump though? It looked to me like they showed him about to jump, then showed him on the ground. On a pre-taped show, it would be easy to fake. If it wasn't faked, shame on them, because it certainly looked that way.

    WWE TV 03/30 - 04/05 Pau no cu do Bolsonaro

    Maybe that's why it's a boneyard match. I'm not watching. Why is GOAT Mauro not on the show? No matter what you may think of the resplendent Ranallo, in no universe is the annoying, rat-like Sam Roberts an adequate substitute.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    The Viceland Roku app had the Benoit episodes accessible for free, but New Jack requires a cable login. Is it available for free, legally, anywhere else?

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    Assuming you're serious, if that doesn't make it a must-read, nothing will.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    I grabbed a free sample chapter on Kindle, and I agree that the content looks fantastic. Unfortunately, the formatting is a different story... It uses an old Kindle file format called Topaz, which basically looks like a really bad scan. On my e-ink Kindle Paperwhite, the text is very a dull, washed out, light grey - a chore to read, needless to say. I assume Calibre might be able to fix some of that, but I no longer have a PC that can run programs like that. At $2.99, it might be worth grinning and bearing anyway. If it were 99 cents, I wouldn't hesitate. I did get Mayor Kane. Even though I'm sure the political aspect of it will only annoy me, the good rasslin' stories will hopefully make up for it. (As much as everyone crows about Glenn Jacobs being a "nice guy" and great politician, the fucking boob voted for Trump. With that said, I'd still take Kane over any of the inept politicians in my state.)

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    Randomly found some Kindle deals on wrestling books... $2.99 each: Mayor Kane: My Life in Wrestling and Politics by Glenn Jacobs - I assume the political aspect won't be great, but the wrestling stories should be fun. I bought it. Beer, Blood & Cornmeal: Seven Years of Strange Wrestling by Bob Calhoun - This is about Incredibly Strange Wrestling, a promotion I'm unfamiliar with. Still, this might be wacky enough to be worth a look. I'll sleep on it. Death of the Territories by Tim Hornbaker - I read this for free through the Netgalley site, and while it is extremely informative, it's also very dry and hard to keep track of at times. It probably helps if you lived through the eras covered in the book. At this price, it's certainly worth it for any budding historian or PWO GWE type. Life Is Short and So Am I: My Life Inside, Outside, and Under the Wrestling Ring by Dylan Postl - I paid more for this only a month or two ago (and it was on sale then too), so it stings slightly that it's now even cheaper. Still, it was worth the price I paid. No regrets there. Fun read. I posted more detailed thoughts HERE. The Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame: The Storytellers (From the Terrible Turk to Twitter) by Greg Oliver and Steven Johnson - There's a whole series of these "Hall of Fame" books. I've read none of them though. BTW, J.R.'s second book comes out today. However, at $12.99, I'll be waiting. The first one dropped to $1.99 within months.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    Watched both Benoit episodes last night... Holy shit, this is most brutal, uncompromising, gut-wrenching two hours of television you'll ever see. There is nothing pleasant about it whatsoever. While last season's episodes were all obviously tragic as well, most of them had kind of a cheesy "true crime TV" vibe that made it easier for the viewer to distance themselves slightly. That's gone here. This is just pure unadulterated hopelessness and despair. Many interesting facts and perspectives are covered here. My heart breaks for poor David Benoit (Chris's son, who looks exactly like him) and Sandra Toffoloni (Nancy's sister).

    WrestleMania 36

    If it were me, I'd have Samoa Joe come in as a surprise and destroy Goldy for the belt (and I haven't always been the biggest Joe fan). Bryan or Joe are realistically their best options. Instead, we'll probably get Bray regaining it in a stinker.
  9. I don't care how it looks - I'll be binge-watching every episode.

    AEW Dynamite 25th March 2020

    Why would Jimmy Havoc grab Cody's tongue? That's a terrible idea even when we're not in the middle of a pandemic.

    WrestleMania 36

    Wrestling Inc. posted this: "WWE Superstars Dana Brooke and Rey Mysterio are currently in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio." Did Meltzer actually say this? If so, holy shit... Shouldn't everyone Rey and Dana Brooke wrestled against or interacted with also get tested? Makes no sense to me that Andrade and Garza are still on the show teaming against the Street Profits. I assume Ryan Satin won't have a word to say about any of this though.

    WrestleMania 36

    Charlotte vs. Asuka was a genuinely good match, and the best of the night up until that point, but no one gives it credit because of the shock finish.

    PWO Appreciation Thread

    What a wonderful thread! Thanks for the mention, brother. If I couldn't turn to a good wrestling match, or a movie - my other great love - as a way to take my mind off the world, I would be a lot less healthy mentally and emotionally. Escapism is really important and necessary.

    Ring of Honor Wrestling

    Silas Young apologized to "anyone I may have offended" for "perhaps" downplaying Coronavirus. Maybe he's sincere, maybe he isn't, but people really need to be taught how to write apologies, because most of them suck at it. Then again, he doesn't know the difference between "your" and "you're," so let's not get carried away expecting Shakespeare from anything he writes. "Perhaps" this was the best he could do.
  15. AEW is probably not testing, but Shad Khan is an NFL team owner, no? That would presumably give them a leg-up if they ever want to get serious about this. But it's pro rasslin', so I suspect neither major company is doing all they can and should be doing. Actually, it's more than a suspicion - their TV shows confirm it.
