Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

Recommended Posts

All of my friends who follow indie wrestling have Allie Katch as a prime candidate for worst wrestler of the year thus far.  She just hasn't gotten any better seemingly, yet she's by far the most heavily pushed woman in GCW.

Thing is, i *want* to like her because she's one of the people who's really been front & center in the business promoting LGBTQ issues!  But god i can't think of an Allie Katch match better than "OK i guess"

There are obvious reasons if you know certain biographical details...

Do tell.

Actually i got some info mixed up so never mind, sorry!  Edited that out of the post

Also to stay on the GCW topic, they were heading for Worst Promotion territory with the Hammerstein PPV and the run of shows after, though they seem to have sorta rebounded more recently.  Still too many deathmatch randos getting a push but at least some of them are putting in effort to get better

I admit i dont follow GCW super closely, but I thought that the Hammerstein was an anomaly due to them not wanting to upset PPV providers by doing any of their usual mega violent gimmicks.

The moment I saw her pull a switchblade on someone I had enough.

That was dumb, but in context of the match it wasn't as bad as people tried to make it out to be IMO.  She's gotten herself over pretty well and seems like a nice enough person  (and as stated has been front and center promoting LGBTQ issues in wrestling) people seem to give her a pass for not really being all that great in ring.

I don't know how strongly they're rebounding. Tonight's show would be pretty meh if Mox wasn't showing up. Feels like they desperately need Gage back as a star.

It is kinda hilarious that the Jarrett/Effy storyline arc went: Jarrett comes out of retirement to attack Effy, repeatedly beats him up, beats him cleanly in their only match, then goes back into retirement with a proper office job. Really makes one of GCW's homegrown stars look bad there.

To be fair, the Jarrett/Effy match seemed to be setting up a longer program. However, considering he's done this to AAA numerous times now (including the first Triplemania XXX show in April where they teased a Jarrett/Rey Escorpion vs Latin Lover/Vampiro feud) they should have suspected something like this could happen.

Lana is battling a bad case of covid per the WO update from yesterday, so I wouldn't have much hope for that one happening.

You are correct! They have updated today with Lana removed from the card, now listing Lina Fanene vs. TBD

Nia tweeted yesterday that she won't be a part of this :-D

I'm looking forward to this odd Frankenstein's monster of a show. SDS vs Dorado will be good at least, and I'm curious about a No Way Jose vs Jody Fleisch match.

DDT has been the best JP men's promotion this year, hands down.  Their tournaments really show what an embarrassment AEW & NJPW have been in that regard as of late.  Glad Takeshita's around to give Americans some taste of the non-comedy work they have to offer, considering how often they get written off as just that.  Though on the comedic end, the gay folks in our watch group absolutely love the Pheromones...

Rosemary calling Glen Jacobs a literal piece of shit (you can guess why) is kinda cathartic. Because he is.

It's a cute line, but winky winky wrestling nerd references ain't cutting the mustard here. These motherfuckers need to be called out in the strongest terms possible.

Let me amend that a  little. Good on her for saying something. I just prefer the more straightforward approach here.

Libertarians are just Republicans who want to smoke weed. Fuck them, fuck him, and fuck the Supreme Court.

This is the funniest and yet most accurate way I've ever heard anyone explain it. Libertarians is a very foreign concept in Europe (well, in France at least it is, but I guess in most European country it's the same), so you know I'm gonna use that one over and over again as a way to explain it.

Of course, Linda McMahon is elated (I wonder how many of Vince's affairs' she had to pay for, that must have stung I guess). Maybe a comment from Mother Hen Inventor of Feminism Stephanie MacMahon-Levesque ? Yes, no ? Probably not.

Takeshita is the first Japanese wrestler in AEW that has really clicked with Cornette, too. He has a very old school vibe to him.

You know Stephanie is most likely pro-choice, but there's no way she's saying anything publicly because she doesn't actually have that power. Also, she actually was pushing for better representation in those years between Divas and the current era where the women are often the best part of the shows. Then it became clear that the audience wanted good women's wrestling as proved by NXT, run by Dusty and then HHH. Her being the "face" of it was just Vince corporate shit that dictates the female McMahon should be the "hero" who made it happen. 
She's still being a corporate coward by staying silent while her old lady is tweeting her support of the decision that contradicts her statements she made during her failed, "You fuck everything, I get to run for Congress" deals that Vince regrets more than ICO-PRO. 
Shit, I'm sure that Titans Tower and Trump Tower both have abortion clinics . If you pull the third tooth from the bottom on Vince's Dinosaur skull , the door to his opens.
