  1. I like how Dexter Lumis saying "I do" makes for a bigger main event than Ciampa winning the belt.
  2. I love the idea that Kawada's kicks caused Raven's tears. Like the real reason for Raven's character was because Kawada kicked him too hard. Also, this information about the magazines and the idol culture is amazing.
  3. I think I remember from either Raw Magazine or WWF Magazine, the explanation for Mankind's knee was something like it was dislocated and he was setting it back in place. I dont have my magazines from this time period anymore or I would try to confirm.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I think Corbin would be great in the role that Cutler and Nakazawa are in right now. It would be fun seeing him interact with Omega and Callis as their lowly toad.

    WWE TV 08/30 - 09/05 Paralympic Games rock

    I am surprised Bruce Prichard is still there as I didn't think he would last this long. I can see after WWE's next big failure him being blamed and then fired. In fact maybe Triple H is biding his time, and setting up Bruce to be the scapegoat next time they need one, and taking back control.

    I really enjoyed the Allysin Kay vs Trish Adora match from this weekend's TV. It had a lot of mat wrestling, and it looked different from the women's wrestling I see on WWE. I'm curious now to watch the semifinals of this women's tournament.

    WWE TV 08/09 - 08/15 NXT is no more

    Jeff Hardy looks like he has become the Cotton Candy man with those colors.

    WWE TV 08/02 - 08/08 Olympic Wrestling is dope

    I just watched Smackdown now and Seth Rollins ripped off MJF's catchphrase. MJF says "I'm better than you and you know it," and Rollins told Edge "I'm better than you in every single way and you know it."
  9. Maybe one of Punk/Danielson would feud with Omega and the other would feud with Hangman.

    AEW Dark Megathread

    I really like Eddie Kingston on commentary on Elevation this week. He has interesting things to say and he makes it sound more like the matches are really happening. I also liked how he reacts when the entrance pyro goes off, still selling the story from the exploding ring match about PTSD or whatever from fireworks.

    WWE TV 07/26 - 08/01 The Olympic Games are a wonderful event

    Eventual Lee is not a very Hugh Morris name. I did actually like the Keith Lee match tonight though. I could feel the struggle to try to get the straight jacket on Lee. I would like it if there was a rematch.

    [1982-07-10-MACW] Roddy Piper vs Jack Brisco

    They showed this on the Canadian version of the network a couple weeks ago, because I guess they are showing 1982 Mid-Atlantic week by week in real time, so it was on the 29th anniversary. Anyway, I recorded it on my DVR and sat on it thinking it was just a random episode, then was blown away. I was surprised they just had a good match like this on free TV in 1982. I guess because of the foreign object finish, but it was an exciting match up to that point. The sleeper hold exchange section ironically woke me up and got me behind Jack. The finish was well done and would have left fans wanting to see Piper get his comeuppance.

    Danhausen on commentary for the PCO vs Sledge match on this weekend's TV was hilarious. I literally laughed out loud alone in my living room a couple times which I never do for wrestling comedy. I wonder if Danhausen might do better as a manager.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I was watching the july 12 1993 episode of Raw and there was a match between Mr Hughes and Tony Devito being used as a jobber. Anyway when Tony Devito was announced, Vince on commentary claimed Tony was first cousins with Basil Devito. I couldnt find anything about this online so I assume it was a rib, because what fans in 1993 would know who Basil Devito was? Still I found it amusing.
  15. It's funny that they are dragging each other all over the ring when the chain looks so long. It looks like if they just knocked out the other guy in the middle area of the ring they could probably reach all 4 corners with a minimum of fuss. That is kind of what AEW did with their strap match. Although having to drag the guy around the ring is a nice visual. If they really wanted a chain match on this card, they could hame made this a regular match and let Sting win, and they could have made the Yellow Dog match a dog collar match.
