    Greatest Career Rehabs

    Luger was clearly reinvigorated by jumping back to WCW which led to some fantastic work from 95-97. He’s a really underrated part of the whole nWo hot streak.

    I really hope they hit some home runs on the early TV because that'll set the tone for the dates following. Like you say, they're building some momentum and they just have to hit the right air pocket to keep it up.

    The obvious thing to do with Cassidy seems to be him doing his shtick and jobbing for a while until he, somehow, finds himself in a big TV main event and then shows that he can go. Similar to the match he had with David Starr a while back. Where you go from there, I don’t know but I actually have some faith that these guys are thinking long-term, to a degree.

    NXT Takeover: Toronto 2019

    I guess the highly touted September NXT class is going to have someone in it that'll unseat Shayna? Or maybe they are just stretching this as long as possible to lead into a feud with Ronda. And I thought I hated post-Jesus Shawn Michaels matches but I think i despise Shawn Michaels agenting even more.

    WWE Summerslam 2019

    I read a Youtube comment, of all things, that had the awesome idea of Bray coming out in his Mr Rodgers gear, the week after attacking Finn, to save him and doing a split personality gimmick. Now that hasn't happened, I'm way less excited about the whole thing. Also, imagine if you were in a coma for a year and you woke up to Summerslam having a random Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler match for very little reason.

    WWE TV 08/05 - 08/11 Comedy can truly help in dark times

    I kind of dig the idea of Bryan siding with a newly invigorated Bray with Rowan as the go-between, to take over the shows. I mean, in my head, they'd find a way to rationalise it and play back into past history with Wyatt, Roman and Bryan but I'll even settle for them not doing that just to see something halfway fresh.

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

    They should have just revealed it to be Joe trying to kill him tonight rather than having it be a limp reveal next week. Has there even been a rumour of what Bryan’s announcement will be? Do they run the Henry fake retirement angle but with Bryan going back after Kofi?
  8. I have the trust in Joe to heat up that feud by himself if they let him talk. And I really hope the Summerslam match is a heavyweight sprint; those two could work a great one of those.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    The Firestick App has always been solid for me and they’re a pretty useful device for other services for their price.
  10. Holy shit, they killed him. He's done.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    Some stray thoughts as I progress through the show. Hopefully Willie Mack is a guy who is going to get a push throughout the rest of the year since the dude is so enjoyable and was a clear step above the other 3 guys in the opener as far as charisma was concerned. The tag match was OK but was strange to see them follow the opener with a match following a similar formula. Injury angle worked fine and I really liked Ethan Page as the quasi-big man, kicking and throwing guys around and breaking up pins in increasingly nasty ways. The Rascalz are portrayed as weed smokers but they work like Jack Evans on speed which is something I appreciate, they move at 100mph and The North should be good bases for them going forward. They need to find a couple of new teams from somewhere though. Kross has won me around in recent months; he’s got great presence and carries himself fantastically well which makes up for some of his poorer in-ring work. As much as people may hate to hear it, he seems like a guy who Heyman would push for to get on Raw. Match with Edwards was fine and Edwards as would-be Foley, getting over by taking ridiculous punishment is the most I’ve ever enjoyed him. Will probably finish the rest tomorrow before this crazy weekend but Impact really do know how to build to these shows and deliver when they get there, even on these smaller undercard matches. Everything is super satisfying.
  12. I'm still waiting for WWEUniverse.com to finally catch on and usurp Facebook.
  13. So there’s a Women’s show featuring Steph being made for something called Quibi (?). Where the hell do they find these bizarre, unheard of, Silicon Valley start-ups to partner with?
  14. If the rumours are true, I'm intrigued to see

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    This was fucking awesome btw. So, imagine my huge disappointment when the internet came out of the show talking up Devlin/Dragunov which was good fun but nothing I haven't seen a million times already on the indies. Both guys in the main had that untouchable charisma which really elevates pro wrestling. I'm beyond lucky that I got to see Eddie Kingston in North East England on his retirement run.
