Who is this guy who is facing Roman Reigns next? I feel like the company has run out of opponents to pair him with and are waiting for Rhodes to recover. Was it like this for Hogan and Cena after awhile?

I heard there's already a long line of people waiting to hook up with Paige/Saraya, and that she's ready and willing. For her part, she says she's going to bust her ass and take on all comers, and that she'll take on anybody, anytime, anywhere. I predict lots and lots of 3-Way action in her future, for sure, as she's something of an expert at that.

Sometimes the jokes write themselves.

Allegedly Saraya has been cleared by actual doctors to wrestle for a while just not cleared by WWE's clown doctors back when she was still with them.

To be fair, WWE is a real company and thus the legal liability if someone gets permanently injured on their dime is far more substantial.

AEW is an indy fed with a TV deal, so I'm sure their "medical clearance to compete" is exactly the same as the places I work for. I.e., "Did you sign the waiver? Okay good LoL."

I wonder what shape Paige is really in though.

Remember for a while Daniel Bryan was also 'permanently retired' even when he was actually cleared for few years and it took forever for WWE to finally relent and bring him back.

I guess, like you said since they had a higher case of liability, would explain why the WWE took forever to bring DB back. They most likely wanted to be 110% sure he wouldn't be re-injured before letting him come back.

Luckily I don't think AEW has any noticeable botch queens like Sasha and Nia, or at least dangerous botches so Paige should be safe.

I'm pretty sure Paige can take it.

AEW has one her name is Marina Shafir she is ****ing awful she makes Jade Cargill look like a seasoned Vet. She is Nyla's tag partner. She literally dropped a girl on her neck doing her tag finisher with Nyla last week on Elevation.

Thankfully for now Tony is keeping her on Youtube so Page shouldn't worry

It's a great move, I do it all the time. ALL THE TIME.

Always, always, ALWAYS get your heat back, unless it's a piledriver or a DDT it is perfectly acceptable to kick out at 3.1, or even 3.01. Many will dispute this but that's because they're in love with their own sh*tty finisher that they think is so goddamn cool.

Meanwhile, I invented a Grapevine DDT finisher specifically so nobody could ever pull that sh*t on me, because on the indies that sh*t still matters.
Guy: "So what's your finish?"
Me: "I do like a Grapevine DDT kinda thing."
Guy: "....Can you hit me with something else? I can't kick out of a DDT, that's like no-selling a gunshot to the head..."
Me: "...I know, that's why I do a DDT, so guys can't f*cking no-sell my finish. Smart, right?!"

Piledriver or DDT, you don't kick out at all and you let someone carry you to the back after the match. Anything else, f*ck it, kick out at 3.1 and get your f*cking heat back. Yes guys whine. Just tell them "I'm sorry, a flying forearm might be enough to put me down for 3 but NOT enough to put me out cold" and let 'em f*cking deal with it.

Yet another backstage altercation has occurred in AEW, this time between twitter opponents Sammy Guevara and Andrade. Andrade was the one sent home and his crucial mask vs career match against 10 of the Dark Order on Rampage this week cancelled.

Yeah, perfect. Garbage ending to a garbage PPV.

Riddle/Seth wasn't too bad and Edge and Finn did "okay", most everything else was dogsh*t. The Rousey/Liv match was f*cking atrocious, whoever the agent was for that match needs to be fired. Nobody sold sh*t, there was no psychology, they took turns at one point giving each other a million shots with a baseball bat and neither one of them sold ANY of it, in fact at one point Liv blatantly just went "lol Nah" after taking one to the ribs and immediately did some kinda flippy-sh*t move. Then she was LAUGHING while in the submission she lost to, and then laughed MORE while Ronda was going up the ramp with the belt. Liv is f*cking useless, I'm sorry. Ronda has her ups and downs but I legit have never seen her in match that was that bad.

I noticed that Bianca also has "I ain't gotta sell sh*t" written in her contract, apparently, since she beat up three women with ease, never sold a single f*cking move, and won her match without so much as smearing her lipstick while Bayley looked like she got hit by a truck. I cannot stand Bianca, she's awful. It drives me nuts that people can't see how completely manufactured she is. Anybody can look like a f*cking superstar if your entire gimmick is "I never look weak for a second and I get to beat up multiple people at once constantly."

Riddle and Seth did alright but Matt did not work that match at ALL like he was out for Seth's blood, in fact Seth was on offense for way too much of it considering the story they spent weeks building to. Matt should have spent the entire match trying to murder Seth for all the personal sh*t he said about his wife and kids, and Seth should have spent the entire match just trying to survive. Instead, it was pretty much just Seth hitting a ton of Big Moves on Riddle and Riddle just constantly getting back up, which okay that shows you're tough but that isn't the story this match should have, though. They executed well, and the right guy won, so that was cool. The whole thing just felt "off" because the story of the match did not fit the story of the build-up.

And then, of course, the show ends with a 10-minute hype job for Spooky McFatAss. As if his entire ridiculous, stupid, nonsensical and Very Not-Good act hadn't already been beaten into the ground years ago. He's fat, he can't consistently perform at a main event level, and his "epic" promos everyone loves are just a bunch of random nonsense gibberish. He is an absolutely f*cking dogsh*t "top guy", I'm sorry. He's been thoroughly exposed by this point, it's way too late for a "do-over". His promos suck, his gimmick is sh*t, and nobody who sweats more than the Big Boss Man should even be in a wrestling ring because it's a health hazard.

This company is FULL of people who I cannot even fathom are "main event performers" on a stage like this. This entire PPV was full of people giving performances that would have gotten them bitched out at backstage at an indy show, for either being sloppy or not selling or just plain not making sense. People keep swearing that "Hunter being in charge is making everything better!", and I'll be honest, it's been actual years since I watched ANY WWE show beginning to end... but that was the worst WWE PPV I've seen in many years, so if that's "improvement", yeah, nah, I'm good.

Especially since it appears we're due for Bray Wyatt Push #957, which is as sure a sign as has ever been given that I need to just stop paying any and all attention immediately.

To my buddy's credit, he knew he'd only get me out of the house if he promised to buy me dinner at the Chinese buffet. And even he admitted the show sucked a dick.

It's just too bad that AEW has been even worse, lately. Blargh. Wrestling is just the sh*ts all over right now.

So will WWE do Bray Wyatt right this time?

Also, as the current WWE alternative implode in AEW Jon Moxley/ Dean Ambrose reupped his contract. It's good that he is putting happiness of the dollar signs, but at the same time it's not a guarantee that it will not be in the former TNA's status by that point his contract ends. Sucks for The Shield too.

Serious question: What good was the entire Seth/Riddle feud? Honestly.

Before it started, Seth's role was consistently being in and out of the Title scene, winning and losing various Championships. Riddle's role was to have entertaining matches with midcarders.

So they do this whole "blood feud", ostensibly to elevate Riddle's stock, and even though he wins the feud BOTH guys immediately go right back to the roles they already had before. Seth gets another belt, Riddle goes back to wrestling nobodies.

What was the f*cking POINT? The guy who lost didn't move down the card, the guy who won didn't move up. Everything stayed exactly the same, other than Riddle can say he was in a PPV main event and won (even if it is on one of the most notoriously sh*tty PPVs year after year; main eventing Extreme Rules is not exactly brag-worthy as the show always sucks).

I don't give a sh*t what anyone says; "Everything is much better now with Triple H in charge!" is the biggest f*cking lie since "I'm gonna pull out, I swear!" It's still all terrible, just "different" terrible. Instead of Vince's fart jokes and "LoL foreigners talk funny" nonsense, it's Hunter with his "Sh*t doesn't have to make sense, it just has to get a pop in the moment" nonsense. Equally terrible, just taking a different street to get there.

I really can't stand watching wrestling and I wish my wife hated it so I'd never have to even look at it. I can't stand seeing people get paid millions of dollars to be so unrepentantly sh*tty at their one and only job.

Hold the fort there my tribal chief. The guy is consistently over with the audience and his goof role in the Bloodline is one of the best slow-burn angles the company has, sure I don't think he'll ever beat Reigns for the belt, but he and Kevin Owens are most certainly taking the belts from the Usos at 'Mania once the turn comes.
