How many bottles of that shlt would it take to get one through an episode of RAW?

 

Depends how many bottles would it take you to even consider watching first? Then add what it'd take to get through the entire episode

Lance being held out for Covid might be the best thing that could have happened for AEW. Hopefully Tony can rethink his approach here, absolutely no reason to hotshot what can be a great program to Full Gear in November.

Gold on the mic hell yeah, but let's be real, dude looks like somebody's drunk uncle hopped the rail at a house show. Not surprised Vince wasn't interested :shrug:

Got a customer who looks like Eddie. But Eddie looks like a legit bada## where when I see Seth Rollins I think he's that idiot bully who acts like a bad### and hides behind bigger guys

Ivelisse apparently lost his house in a fire over the past month and has been dealing with some personal stuff. However says she see's the silver lining now. 

Ivelisse loses house plus other issues

Seerena Deeb is self quarantine because of someone she was around tested positive. 

Brian Cage is positve

Benjamin who wrestled Scorpio sky is positive so Scorpio is quarantine

NXT new outbreak is from a talent who hosted a party which is has the new outbreak. No one will release the perp.

I was listening to a Podcast on Thursday night with former Lucha Manager Famous B. I've heard him on some stuff before and all but the Ivelisse/Thunder Rose topic came up. Here's what his opinion was:

* Both girls are very opinionated won't pull punches on anything

* He doesn't fault either girl in the situation but did bring up that Thunder Rose was the one who started no selling 

* Ivelisse is a firecracker doesn't matter if it's 8AM or 2AM in the morning she isn't afraid

*Thunder Rosa is a very good talent and definitely not someone to get on their bad side

He believes many made too much of mountain over an Aunt hill on this. He said match looked like something that would happen on a dark match when he was in Lucha Underground. Most would brush it off. 

He made some comments praising Brian Cage and Eddie Kingston as well. 

He then went into WWE and some stuff about them. He said commented on the Retribution story line comparing it to Nexus but saying Nexus had way more momentum and rub. Retribution WWE has to build that rub for them. 

PS: During the podcast Famous' smoke detector kept going off for low battery. He said he'd have replaced it already but it was too high for him to reach and he was getting a ladder from a friend to borrow so he could reach it. So during the whole podcast every few minutes if he was on you could hear the smoke detector low battery. Crazy thing is it was in a totally different room and is mic just picks up everything

Percent of irregular finishes YTD by show.  (aka Why RAW’s ratings are explosive diarrhea.)

His next tweet shows that highest percentage of irregular finishes by individual show. 8/25 episode Smackdown had SIXTY PERCENT of matches that were irregular. 

50/50 booking, yo.

Roman Reigns sure was mean to his cousin. I'm worried his awesomeness might be going to his head. 

Shtick aside, I loved this match. The fact there were no fans there allowed us to hear RR ranting and warning his cousin. The “you’re trying to level up” line was great.  Plus, Jimmy coming down to throw in the towel and acknowledge RR as the head of the tribe gives creative the ability to either end it or keep it going.

I hear ya, and I generally tend to agree.  Don't know if you watched this one but it's an exception, and it was really, really fun.

I'm caught up on 4 out of 5 shows of the G1. Superb cards, 6 matches (counting Young Lions undercard match) in 2.5 hours, which includes a 5-minute intermission for ring cleaning, just a breeze to watch. If you have the time, add another 15-20 minutes to catch all the interviews with English subtitles. Excellent stuff.

Personally recommended matches follow.

Day 1:
Tomohiro Ishii vs Minoru Suzuki

Day 2:
Zack Sabre Jr vs EVIL
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Tetsuya Naito

Day 3:
Tomohiro Ishii vs Will Ospreay
TAICHI vs Minoru Suzuki
Kota Ibushi vs Jay White

And the entirety of Day 4 is required viewing:
SANADA vs Hirooki Goto
Toru Yano vs Hiroshi Tanahashi
Juice Robinson vs KENTA
YOSHI-HASHI vs EVIL (Seriously might be match of the tournament thus far. Like honest to god of all matches THIS ONE IS A BANGER.)
Zack Sabre Jr vs Tetsuya Naito

 

Love me some AEW but there is no question in my mind that NJPW is my favorite promotion.

Missed the PPV last night, and not really itching to watch it. Saw results on Twitter and besides the Reigns/Uso match, feels pretty skippable.

I'm caught up to day 2. Really hate waiting for the English feed to update but I'm just glad NJPW is back and we can watch it.

That one wasn't too bad. The handcuffing of Hardy and Styles to ladders were priceless spots.

I'm telling you guys, the first match (ladders) and last match (Reigns) were really really good.  The ambulance match was pretty good, if a bit long.  But you won't be disappointed checking out the bookend matches 👍

RIP Aleister Black's career

They should have worked out something financially to keep that entrance music and entrance. Was/is arguably the best in the company.

Guy looked like a Heath Slater jobber rushing to the ring for his entrance tonight.

Too bad. 

At least it looks like we'll get Bo Dallas on NXT again.

It's time to Bo-lieve

Again.

Please help me in wishing Toga Makabe a Very happy birthday. The Great Bash Heel is one entertaining and tough dude. Prince Devitt already wished him well

I’m going to need a list of all of his wrestling names, gimmicks and if he’s ever wrestled in Philadelphia before I can do that.

I haven’t liked the whole Rollins|mysterio angle. The eye thing. Not sure where the daughter/Murphy thing is going but it makes me cringe.

Well Rocky Romero liked my Tweet and Makabe retweeted with a thank you. So I say that we're on casual friends section at this point.
