Certainly tells the whole story when Vince spends more time on a tweet for his son-in-law than his own son.

To be fair, there's probably a non zero chance that it's Hunter writing Vince's tweets.

He spent his birthday weekend fielding shareholder calls about declining ratings and the effect of AEW on their business. I hope he gets at least an episode of Raw dedicated to him for having to be Vince's shield on these calls

In other news:

So either he was severely gotten to by Pat McAfee or it was an attempt at a worked shoot that failed miserably. Also, we live in an era where heels have to apologize for being assholes.

I long for the olden days where wrestlers were more concerned about making sure they were the ones who got over and not the all important BRAND.

Adam is the geekiest man to have the Cole surname in WWE.

He's not looking good regardless of their intent. Not sure if throwing a tantrum is worse than working a shoot where the host is not only not intimidated by the wrestler, but is way bigger and treating the wrestler like a child.

I thought the McAfee/Cole thing was a work when I saw it. It didn't create any sort of buzz so on that level it failed.

The apology seems like a red herring to further a storyline that nobody gives a shit about as he never actually apologizes to McAfee - in fact, he doubles-down on McAfee "pushing his buttons" and implies he is going to "make sure something like this never happens again." The tweet could be interpreted as him being upset that instead of actually attacking McAfee, he stormed off.

But its all still a really long route to a creative dead-end. Cole is right up there with Rollins as someone who is so miscast and overpushed that I feel like I could write a college thesis about it. Maybe even more than Rollins actually. Like, yes, Rollins' selling and psychology are god awful - but Adam Cole wouldn't even be in the top weight class on a middle school wrestling team. I know they gimmick him as being 6'0 when he's really 5'10 tops, but I'm equally skeptical about him being 210 pounds. And he's booked like a legit heel tough guy more often than not.

When he appeared at the 2018 Rumble, Cole looked just slightly taller than Rey Mysterio, and I'm not even joking. Rey had wider shoulders, though.

Just watch the video and my god it was so lame. One it makes Cole look like a chump instead of a star and two the larger audience don't know who Pat McAfee is. I mean if this was on Joe Rogan's podcast now we're talking because know him not on a show of a retired football player that wouldn't pass the mom test, and I like McAfee.

Cult leaders without followers undermines the whole thing.

Yeah but there's not much they can do since Austin Theory got banished to the Phantom Zone due to covid (I assume).

Dom might be pretty good down the line.

Even so, bubba. Ministry of Darkness worked because despite they had more than 3 people around throughout most of its duration.

I realize it's way down the list of problems here, but why is Murphy dressed like he arrived at the building right after going surfing?

This is why Enzo would have been an absolute fucking legend in another era. He was all about himself, got over as himself, and was more over then than 99% of the current roster is now.

I laughed when the idiotic ROH fans bitched up a storm about that Enzo-Cass surprise appearance. It's still the most that slowly dying company has been talked about in two years. 

People will quote and @ me to tell me how wrong I am, but I'm not.

How ya doin'?!
