It was because he missed a show.

It's apparently more then one show he missed. He went MIA like he did last year. Like I said at the time WWE was ready to release him especially after the social media stuff and gay porn stuff but weren't sure how to go about it in terms of legal ways.

I'm about to get on the road...     to Wrestlemania! I don't have exceptional seats, but I'll take a lot of pictures to share.

My 9 year said he would have liked Nakamura's intro if he didn't have that stupid violin player    but then I hit him with a Kinshasa and he piped down

Friday's Super Insane Never Going To Happen Fantasy Booking How I would run with the WWE title until WM 32: Lesnar goes over Reigns at WM by submission. Reigns looks defeated but also a bit confused.

If it wasn't settled before, it is now: I'm traveling to every AEW PPV once full buildings are allowed.

I will not be able to live knowing I missed the *coin flip* signaling Kazuchika Okada's debut.

The wedding of Kip and Penolpe was fun. First, AEW brought back Minister Sinister. I haven’t seen him in a good while. 
“It was love at first boobs.” :lmao:

Miro prevents Sinister from asking if anyone had any objections. A definite callback to his experience in the E. 
“You may now kiss the ball and chain!” :lmao:

And of course, Orange Cassidy. 👍

Kenta told Kenny to F off in a social media content video AEW posted after the show. This was after Omega runs up to him and says Brother Switchblade (Referring to Jay White) didn't mention having guests come to him in AEW. Kenta tells him to F off and he's only there for Moxley.

Cesaro got busted open pretty good in his match with DB tonight. They seem to be intent on finally pushing him as that was as clean a win as you'll see in the current WWE. 

DB is going part time after "Mania so it makes zero sense for him to be winning. Honestly Claudio Castagnoli would be a star in any other Company right now. Watched him a few times in CZW over the years early yrs he was there and ROH and he was amazing. Put him in NJPW or AEW right now he'd be pushed to he moon. Dirt Sheets have been saying for yrs (Just like the last 5 with Big E) "this is the year he's getting his big push", you see it for a few weeks then It stops in it's tracks like a car stuck in a midwest blizzard. No reason given. He really needs to leave WWE but at age 40 it might be too late.

WWE2K people were at The Royal Rumble getting wrestlers scans for the next game. 2K PR a while back took a few questions from fans and 2K said to expect a way better game and they are seriously looking at ways to upgrade the game. Teased a GM type mode and better in depth creations. A few things I suggested was adding more room and lead way to create stables. For example if you wanted to created NWO with the original 8 or DX there was only room for 5 members. Also suggested more flexibility in who in the stable could be a tag team without having to create said tag team first in the stable. Another suggestion I had was re adding Buried alive, Casket matches along with more match and show creative freedom. As for gameplay I was hoping to be able to climb on top of stage props and the stage itself for moves ALA Jeff Hardy Swanton on Randy Orton for the Swanton from one of the support seems or Shane McMahon elbow onto Steve Blackman during their hardcore match at THE SUMMERSLAM. Overall I just want more creative freedom in the game from matches, CAWs, more editing to superstars and hoping edition superstars doesn't take away a CAW slot anymore as well as adding more CAW Slots. Everyone of my universes ended up using the amount given and I still needed room for a few more here and there.

note Daniel Bryan is missing here. He has officially gotten the part timer status after Mania and will be out of action until summeslam afterwards. Most we will get is him and Edge going at it.

Wrestling Inc confirmed part of this report tonight by reporting that Edge has proposed working with Daniel Bryan

He was a transitional champion since Vince Sr. didn't want to put Bruno against Pedro.  Ethnic booking was part of Vince Sr.'s MO.  Having a Puerto Rican win the world title would satisfy that part of the audience.

Same thing we will see with Sheik 12 years later. Almost the exact length of reign between Backland and Hogan.

Favorite Wiki deep dive is the list of WWE Champions. The length of title reigns back in the old days was insane.

For most promotions it was. It's why I loved when Jericho kept the title for so long in AEW also wished Moxley had kept it. WWE has done it but Brock's 2 PPV appearances per year don't count since these guys defended the title almost on a nightly bases. There's times I feel a title should really change hands and never does and then there's times I feel today they take a title off someone too soon. I'm not a huge fan of the double title hot potato in NJPW right now but I guess I''m ok with it since NJPW I only see a few times a month. However their overall booking and future booking is what makes NJPW so great.

IIRC, there was a period during the 80s where Ric Flair was never without the NWA/WCW world title for more than 75 days.  Crockett knew a charismatic heel champion would get over like Rover...and he did.

Deonna Perrozza's Boyfriend Steve Cutler was released by WWE. Word is he had Covid and was around people like Roman Reigns who Vince promised for a better covid free atmosphere (According to Meltzer and aligns with my report earlier last year or Reigns concerns involving WWE handling Covid). Cutler was at a party of some sort with Kacy Catanzaro among others. Kacy has been ignorant throughout this whole situation and with Boyfriend Ricochet threw a NY EVE Party with no masks or social distancing. To make it worse they were also with Marty Scurill. Ricochet deleted the pics on IG when fans went after him of Scrull and posted them without it but that wasn't the biggest issue from fans as much as the party. His GF Kacy also held a big Birthday party a few months ago.

Really disappointed on the lack of a Fiend/Bliss storyline yesterday.  It's the only reason to tune in for me.  They had a good thing going prior to RR, now it feels lost.

People on Twitter are asking why dude’s account is still active and why it seems like nobody’s doing anything about it. 

After what happened to Sonya DeVille, you’d think the E would be a little more proactive. I guess doing something would take away from the Scrooge McDuck levels of cash they’re sitting on.

We can also send you a TUSHY Travel, a portable bidet, perfect for people who poop when they're out and about to have on hand in case you need it and for as long as your pain persists.

Lastly, we’d love for you to be a TUSHY brand ambassador and speak to the many features our bidet offers athletes.

Not sure if anyone else has seen these PAID for AEW advertisements on IMPACT. It has Schiovine and Khan each week telling IMPACT what is on Dynamite the next night as well as making fun of IMPACT. Khan comes off as a great Heel in terms of if you are an IMPACT person or anti AEW fan. He's incredible cocky. This week they talked about the forbidden Door and Khan thanks Kenny and Don for opening him up to new ideas. Khan eventually says I was The Forbidden door all along. Even thanks IMPACT and promises to show up in Nashville with TS again soon. 

Khan in a not so blatant way confirmed that it looks like they used working with IMPACT to smooth over relations with NJPW. I cannot wait till this travel ban from the Pandemic is over. I'm really curious where they take this whole Bullet Club thing too. Maybe AEW/NJPW will finally finish the Civil War Story line that was going on when The Elite left. I know a lot of fans were disappointed how it abruptly ended.

Pluto TV now has wrestling.  Classic matches and the independent scene are shown.  I just got through watching an episode of GLOW.  :lol:

 

Some may already know but they also have a 24/7 TNA/Impact Wrestling channel. I watch time-2-time when they have older content.

Pluto is awesome :thumbup: Best free content out there IMO.

Ernie Ladd, Afa, Sika vs Andre, Dusty Rhodes, JYD

 

Ernie Ladd was a big man.  Andre was a huge man, amazing to see all of these big men pale next to Andre.

Fun fact. Afa and Sika took in Rodney Anoa'i when he was skipping school in California. Rodney's parents didn't realize until the week before graduation he wouldn't graduate. Afa and Sika said they'd take him in and he wrestled with his cousin Rikishi and others. He ended up loving and Yokozuna was born shortly after in WWF. And as they say the rest is history.

For those wondering this story is in the Yokozuna documentary that WWE Network had right after the RR was on. If WWE still does one thing very well it's these documentary series. However I will say those on more controversial characters if and when done they tend to leave out all the facts the put them in the wrong. Not a surprise but definitely one of those take them with a grain of salt. 

However The Yokozuna was one of the best ones I've seen. I had not realized he had such terrible weight issues. It's really settling that WWE/F at the time tried to help Rodney and so did his family. Vince and Bruce Prichard did so much to get him on some sort of diet. Even Mark Henry tried helping him out but he wouldn't listen. WWE released Rodney as they didn't want to be held accountable if some health issue happened when he was in the ring. Everyone always said if Rodney got back into shape Vince would've taken him back immediately. Vince has so much respect for the family as a whole that when he promises the Samoan's something it's one of the few times he doesn't back off or break it. 

Like I said when the Documentary first aired it's public knowledge how Undertaker and Rodney were really good friends and part of the BSK crew backstage. They didn't go into a lot of detail of Mark and Rodney being friends. A lot of Rikishi and him for obvious reasons. Rikishi was suppose to Debut with the Wild Samoans but was pulled out do to an injury. This allowed Rodney to debut in WWF with the Wild Samoans at the time. Rikishi says he has no hard feelings and believes Rodney impressed Vince so much then that he believes thats how he ended up getting the Yokozuna Character eventually.

I've watched some classic Baywatch on there. Back in my younger days I had downloaded all the episodes of Baywatch and The spinoff like Hawaii and the Baywatch movie. I never finished it though. It was corny TV but it was entertaining despite how unrealistic some of it was.

And on the subject of Japanese wrestling I've been catching up on NJPW got to night one of New Beginning Big Show. I've really enjoyed El Phantasmo's commentary with Kevin Kelly. The Show after the SB I believe an elimination Over the top rope or Pin fall 10 man tag with Bullet Club and CHOAS happened. Yoshi Hashi was the last member of CHOAS and Tama hit a Gun Stun and White got a cover but pulled him up before 3 by the hair. ELP (with his Gorilla Mansoon Marty jumped out of window moment) goes "Oh my god how did he kick out?" Loa hits Ape #### and Jay has another pin and breaks out the 3 count and ELP has another OMG how did he kick out. KK is like he didn't kick out. ELP goes this is Fighting Spirit as it's best from Yoshi Hashi!!!!!! Eventually Goto throws in the towel to end the match but it was super funny. 

ELP could give some of these other color guys a run for their money. Kevin to sign off on the one show says ok time to say good night to audience EP. ELP "NO". I think he's the best Color guy they've had with Kevin since Rocky Romero and before that Calis.

The Forbidden DOOR IS OFFICIALLY OPENED!!!!!! NJPW on their site showed the full AEW Tag match with Moxley and Kenta. 

IMPACT has also announced FinnJuice next week. 

Meltzer has reported if the Pandemic ends and they want to plan an Ibushi/Omega at Tokyo Dome if both parties want it, it will happen. 

Then there's this from Meltzer. OKADA IS IN THE PLANS TO WORK WITH BOTH AEW AND IMPACT!!!!!!! No-one knows for sure where he'll show up but he's involved in this. No word on when but it all comes down to travel restrictions right now. 

Okada and others could be part of AEW/IMPACT/NJPW partnership

A few yrs ago if you told me by 2021 IMPACT and NJPW would be working together again and ROH wouldn't be near the plans I'd have called you crazy. Now it looks like ROH is on the outside looking in. This is what fans have wanted for yrs.
