  1. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    Heath might be the most over he has ever been in his career. Hard to imagine him and Congressman Rhyno winning a tournament that is a transparent excuse to do for American Alpha what the Universal Title was doing for Balor, but I hope they find a way to keep Slater around. He's clearly not actually in danger of getting released, as he's gotten more consistent TV time than anyone else in the company of late, but curious to see what they do.

    NXT is the best wrestling show on TV most weeks. Absolute bummer that, after one of the best PPV shows I've ever seen from any promotion, having their regularly scheduled episode bea glorified clip show was disappointing. I know that's normal for them, but still a bummer. The Bailey tribute was nice, at least.

    WWE confirming the Balor injury. Dislocated his shoulder on the guardrail power bomb, popped it back in and finished the match. Balor has a surgical consult this week, MRI initially showed what might be a labrum tear. If it needs surgery, he's looking at 2-3mo on the shelf. If this were an established title you could let him hold it on the shelf and just do promo work. But with a new belt that needs building up, hard to imagine they'll let the belt go uncontested at Night of Champions or whatever next month. Will be interesting to see how that uncertainty gets handled tonight. Side note: Sting and Balor, maybe it's time for WWE to outlaw power bombing people into upright structures

    Y2J is a vet and knows his shit. If they worked so hard that Jericho thought it was real, maddest of props to Orton for taking his licks like a fucking pro. Bullshit storyline progression, but fucking excellent execution.

    Even with the match being a dud, RKO gets a gold fucking star for that. You've just come back from a massive injury and extended medical leave, and how do you finish your first main event? By letting a legit UFC fighter shoot bust you open with his goddamn elbow. Out of those two dudes, Orton might just be the tougher.

    Unless this is to build to a resolution at Royal Rumble or Survivor Series or something, the wondering serves no purpose. I don't think Orton bladed, but I think it was a work. The way Brock kept jumping back in is the giveaway. There was never an honest attempt by security to stop him, and it all looked like everyone just played their part. No security, no X from the ref like we saw for Joe at Takeover, nothing. I think it must have been a work, a la Floyd breaking Big Show's nose and Rock busting Foley open.

    I haven't watched it yet, but from what I understand, Finn didn't seem out of sorts or obviously injured on GMA today (no sling either). Maybe the Demon King is hurt but normal Finn is ok The whole Sasha situation is weird. Reports are that they took the belt off her so she could deal with nagging injuries. Unless those cropped up in the last week or two, why'd they bother putting the strap on her in the first place? Orton Lesnar could not possibly have been more of a dud. Fine as a prelude to the title fights or a palate clenser between the two, but that match as a main event was more of a disappointment than the Ambrose street fight - especially after that Rusev-Reigns bollocks. Absolute clunker of a way to end a 4hr show that easily could have been 3.

    Yeah, I'm never sure with the X, especially in a spot like that. And with Graves constantly saying "Joe might have broken his jaw," it feels like it must be a work. You never know, guess we'll have to see if Joe is out for any extended period. The women's match was a bit of a letdown. I was hoping for a Sasha/Bailey level of awesomeness. The one plus was that the end totally felt like a send-off to the main roster, so hopefully we see Bailey up there sooner rather than later.

    They're worth watching, very strong matches. Nothing could match the tag match, though.

    You might say that his music is.... GLORIOUS!

    So... TNA went through the whole exercise of Lashley winning all 3 belts just to have him vacate 2 of them? What the fuck is that?! Creatively, TNA are really firing on almost all cylinders lately. But they are totally fucking lost with booking those belts. Broken Hardys vs Decay will be a magnificent feud. Hot damn.
  12. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    I marked out HARD for Vamp and Puma. Holy shit. I unfortunately got Ultima 3's Puma storyline spoiled when they were filming this summer, but I'm fascinated by how they'll get to it regardless. Hot damn. Is it next month yet?!

    Eva's husband says they'll have a statement out soon and that her suspension will cause some public outrage when people know what it's about. I'm sure Paige and ADR were some recreational drug, curious to see what Eva's excuse is.
  14. Hate to rain on the parade, but I don't see any musicians on the stage. Bands often use multitrack recordings instead of live players for soundcheck...
