  1. Indiana has gone to their full reopening phase. I think that includes fully attended live events. They should just run it as a loop for a while. And by should, I mean all of this is absurd and terrible.
  2. This has a truly exemplary Ric Flair City List: "Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Charlotte, Greensboro, St. Louis, Tokyo, Barcelona." Also: "Tag who you wanna tag, I'll tag myself, I'm Ric Flair."

    R.I.P. Kamala (James Harris)

    James Harris suffered numerous chronic health insults in his later years, including amputations on both legs related to diabetes. It's good that he's released from that. COVID is sadly brutal on the chronically ill. He developed the Kamala character with Lawler and Jarrett when he arrived in Memphis in 1982, including the "steamy jungle" vignette that followed him around the country. Andre/Kamala drew in multiple territories, including a Mid-South run that culminated in a 21,000 show at the Superdome in April '83, with Freebirds/Von Erichs and JYD/Olympia. Kamala worked around the country with Hogan in 1986-87, and of course his 1992 feud with Undertaker debuted the casket match, at least in the WWF. He was also in one of the pinnacles of wrestling schlock, the Dungeon of Doom in 1995 WCW.
  4. God bless Ric Flair and his Starrcade 95 title win, but how in the world do you not transition this finish into a Hogan/Savage face(?) vs face(?) main event the next month? It seems like a no-brainer.
  5. Duggan's grandma bears a remarkable resemblance to Dick Slater. And yes, I suspect the pub was in the far away land of County Fulton.
  6. Automatic watch. I can't wait to skip through the other 2:xx.

    AEW Fyter Fest 2020 - Night one

    Or if you really think it should have ended the match, cover them again, as though you are participating in a wrestling match and not an acting class.
  8. Perfectly good way to spend 15 minutes, especially the car horn as distraction spot. I wish they would have found a limited commercial sponsor for, say, the Styles/Bryan match.

    WWE TV 06/15 - 06/23 Liv Morgan.

    Oh, right on. Well then hand a few out to the talent!

    Oh for goodness sakes. There are already hockey boards everywhere! We all know something is out of the ordinary. And it's not like the trainee audience is making really convincing faces anyway. Every sports league is making branded masks and giving the profits to covid charities, it's a PR slam dunk. But no, not Vince...

    Backlash 2020 - The one with the GREATEST MATCH EVER

    I know everyone uses star ratings in different ways, but I just have to ask, are you saying there were two 5-star WWE matches in one weekend? How many do you go that high on in say, a year?

    [2020-06-12-WWE-Smackdown] Daniel Bryan vs A.J. Styles

    This was excellent and worth seeking out if you are a lapsed fan, but four commercial breaks was production malpractice. I'm pretty sure the extra-long TV matches they used to do in the 2000s didn't have four commercial breaks.
  13. That main event was a solid way to spend 20 minutes. Heel Bayley is already fun before the added ego boost of a 2nd belt, and she really hams it up after the win ("They're so heavy! So much gold!"). Nikki was much better (i.e. more competent) in the ring than last time I saw her. It did suffer from the "counting time/ballroom dancing" problem so inherent to modern WWE, especially tag team matches, but the build was still there and the end felt exciting.

    Outrageous real-life heeling it up

    Okay how do I insert the "stop it, get some help" gif here?
