    WWE TV 09/16 - 09/22 Stop pushing Seth down our throats!

    His original ring gear was pretty awful too. And the Lone Wolf wasn't as good or as well defined a character as what he is now, a guy who is a stooge for the heel authority figures. I feel like the "Lone Wolf" should have been like Bad News Brown, as in a heel he hates both the babyfaces as well as the other heels.

    From what I can see, there is no way to watch the new NXT in Canada? It's not on Sportsnet, and I am guessing since it is on USA now it is no longer on the Network.

    The Jim Cornette Experience

    Thank you. I didn't know about this. This helps to clarify a lot when listening to his podcasts. Did a similar incident to these happen with Joey Janella? Because he seems to go off on him a lot too.

    WWF TV Shows 1970s to early 1990s (pre-Raw)

    In Canada here we had Maple Leaf Wrestling and Calvacade of Wrestling in the early 90's. I would only see the Wrestling Challenge taped matches by watching I believe Calvacade of Wrestling as I don't believe any of the American stations included in our cable package showed Wrestling Challenge, only Superstars.
  5. It would be great if instead of "The Fiend" coming out, Bray Wyatt just came out in his "children's TV host" clothing. Like, as if Bray Wyatt and The Fiend were 2 split personalities, and The Fiend refused to "come out" for this match. And then Braun Strowman could just beat Wyatt bloody around the cage for like 5 minutes before pinning him. The idea being that the "Bray Wyatt" persona is just a defenseless children's entertainer now. They get bonus points if they hire a young child actor to sit in the audience somewhere and the camera can just cut to him crying his eyes out every time Wyatt gets thrown into the sides of the cage.
  6. Thinking about the figure skating analogy, I was wondering what would happen if they made a wrestling show as an America's Got Talent style show. A series of matches, and after each one, a group of judges talk review it live on camera. I don't know if traditional wrestling fans would like it, but maybe new viewers would be interested in something like that.

    WWE TV 08/19 - 08/25 The Return of the King of the Ring

    My prediction is that Shelton Benjamin will beat Chad Gable. The other first round winners I think will be Samoa Joe, Ricochet, Cedric Alexander, Baron Corbin, Kevin Owens, Buddy Murphy, and Andrade.
  8. What if it turns out the New Day were the ones that attacked Roman? That could be an interesting twist leading to a possible match between Kofi and Roman. New Day have been faces for a while now, perhaps it would be interesting to see them as heels again.

    NWF, 1983

    Hahahaha. I am sure it was.
  10. I am really enjoying this Roman Reigns attack storyline. WWE had been dismal to watch other than Fire Fly Funhouse since Mania, but I am enjoying this storyline specifically. Also, maybe it was a mistake for Kofi not to pin Randy clean in the ring at SummerSlam, but I am interested in seeing where the story goes now. This is me assuming that Kofi will pin Orton cleanly at a future PPV and this is part of the storyline, at Bryan/Orton from a few years ago.

    WWE Hidden Gems

    I wanted to watch some of the Mid Atlantic episodes leading up to Boogie Jam, but they seem to be missing the last 2 or 3 episodes directly before the show. The last episode they have up before boogie jam has a match from a tournament for the NWA TV title that was vacated after Starrcade 83, but I guess the end of the tournament is not on the network? Also I could be wrong since I don't know too much about this era of Crockett (which is why I wanted to watch some of the TV before watching Boogie Jam) but I think they are missing the episode in January where Paul Jones and the Assassins first attack Jimmy Valiant. This attack I think must be the reason they have this Boogie Jam show in the first place, but also I think this is the beginning of the whole Jimmy Valiant/Paul Jones feud? Somebody who is more familiar with this period of Crockett maybe can give some clarification on this.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    I am not really interested in his news items or his match reviews. However I do have his Tributes book and it is awesome.

    Triplemania XXVII Tonight!

    I feel asleep during the Young Bucks match but watched the last part of the main event (from the part with the hammer and afterward) and thought it was sick in an amazing wow. So much blood! I thought it was scary in the women's TLC match when Tessa threw that girl from the top turn buckle to the floor because it looked like she was supposed to land on the ladder. Anybody know if that was the case? Was she seriously hurt?

    WWE TV 07/29 - 08/04 Hey whatever this country is broken

    Actually, Jason Statham is Deckard Shaw, the brother of Owen Shaw. Luke Evans is the actor who played Owen Shaw, the villain from Fast & Furious 6. (Which makes the title of Hobbs and Shaw confusing if there are 2 characters with the last name Shaw in the franchise). It would be interesting if the actor who played Owen Shaw in FF6 was the one who attacked Roman though out of petty jealousy that Roman got to be in the new movie and his character (Owen Shaw) did not.

    I like the Becky Lynch/Nikki Cross match from Raw. It was short, but I liked how it was different from a typical Raw match building off the storyline heading into it of Nikki just wanting to get her frustrations out on Becky quickly. I also liked the post match with Alexa attacking Becky and then Natalya coming in with the sharpshooter. It does beg the question about why did Alexa fake an injury when she lost the match for no reason instead of trying to beat Becky through cheating or something. Or if she didn't want to continue the match, why not just walk away and lose by count out. It was a bit of an illogical segment, but I liked it overall because the match was wrestled differently from the normal Raw matches.
