  1. Chioda even says right in the interview that the point of the talent relations position is to take the heat. It seems like Carrano was probably put in this position for this purpose, to take the heat from the boys, so he was probably hired because he wasn't one of the boys. Chioda being mad at Carrano proves the point; not being one of the boys makes it easier for him to do his job since he feels no loyalty to the boss like JR probably did. The fact Chioda is blaming Carrano and not Vince doesnt mean to me that it's not Vince's fault Chioda was fired. I bet it was Vince's idea.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Haha this is my favourite post now. And I loved Kane so much in 97-98 when I was like 15, it's sad how the more he talks the less I like him. I imagine him becoming mute again would make local politics in Knoxville quite interesting.

    Happy New Year !

    Hi Kelly, I clicked the link but I can't seem to find a live stream on Jarvis Washington's youtube page, just all the newer Titans theater videos. Do you have a direct link to the livesteam?

    AEW Dynamite - December 23, 2020

    Thanks for reminding me about the NBA game. I rechecked the schedule on my tv and I now see it's starting 2.5 hours later than usual. My DVR wasnt even set to record it so I had to update that.

    Tommy Lister Jr. aka Zeus passes away

    I remember as a kid watching a promo for No Hold's Barred on one of the WWF weekend shows with my brother. I am sure I remember seeing Zeus punch a concrete block and breaking it and thinking "what happens if he hits Hogan in the head that hard?" I also thought because his name was Zeus that he was a step above Hercules Hernandez.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    I was watching the TJP vs Curt Hawkins match and I thought it would be funny if there has been a miscommunication in booking or management. Like if some higher up in Anthem or at AXS had said "there's going to be a lot more eyes on us because of Omega. Let's keep them wanting to watch by putting on a WWE main event match." As in, putting on a match that was the calibre of a match that would headline a WWE pay per view. But the Booker or agent misheard and thought he meant a WWE Main Event(tm) match! As in, the C show that showcases matches been WWE jobbers or 205 Live guys, and so booked Myers vs TJP.

    AEW Dynamite - December 9, 2020

    If we are suggesting new people as possible replacements on the announce team, I enjoyed the time or two that Eddie Kingston commentated on a match and would like to hear more of that.

    AEW Dynamite - December 9, 2020

    I think we are supposed to accept that some wrestlers actually have super natural powers now. I think that's the only way the show works. I thought the promos tonight were weak but I liked the main event, and I also liked the Bucks match.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    I just wanted to say I agree with this. Thank you as this argument helps me understand why I liked the out there stuff happening in Lucha Underground but not so much in Impact or AEW, since in those places when wacky stuff happens it seems out of place or just done as a joke. I think as a similar reason that is why I was okay with the Undertaker as a kid. I did like the wrestler's court trial of Johnny Swinger though on Impact. Because it seemed actually funny to my sense of humor.

    I dont tend to like a lot of comedy in wrestling, but I found the wrestler's court from last week pretty funny. I also liked finding that D'Lo's full name is apparently Dee Lorian Brown.

    AEW Dynamite 2nd December: WINTER IS HERE

    Impact shows on Game TV where I live on Saturdays, so I will be in the interesting position of watching AEW next week before I watch Impact. I wish Don Callis' van had the Impact logo on the side of it. Are they able to watch AEW online in Japan? I wonder what Japanese fans would think of Omega winning the AEW belt? Also, I wonder what AEW with Japanese commentary would sound like.
  12. Maybe the Kamala figure is an investment for Ryder. Maybe he plans to hold onto it for a few years while it increases in value then sell it for a much higher price.

    Ring of Honor Wrestling

    I enjoyed the Jay Lethal vs Josh Woods match. These pure rules matches are really enjoyable for me to watch. Also I like being able to hear what the announcers are saying. The announcing is enjoyable to me here because they are talking about the match like it's a sport and talking about the strategy and what not.

    All Elite Wrestling

    I think a good angle might be if they kicked Brodie Lee out of the Dark Order and made one of their other members the new exalted one. Maybe have a feud between Brodie and somebody else over leadership of the Dark Order. And then the DO could start being winning a lot more.

    AEW Dynamite - November 25, 2020

    Ok so now I'm thinking maybe a ref bump, mysterious attacker comes out, unmasks, and attacks Moxley, ref doesnt see, and then counts the pin for Omega, setting up Moxley for a new feud that will keep him away until the next Pope from Omega. I can totally see them doing that. People may want to pay more money to see Moxley try to win the title back in the rematch.
