    Just catching up on NXT myself and...

    Gable's a good reason, in and of himself, to resuscitate the Cruiserweight Championship. Have it exist for a few months prior to the Gable callup and have it all about flippy guys flipping out, and then Gable comes in and just out-wrestles everyone.

    Intercontinental/Cruiserweight is a better secondary belt set than Intercontinental/US, anyway.

    It's straightforward to book, too. Have the US title won by an undersized chickenshit heel on a fluke. Then have them approach the Authority to re-categorise the title.

    Only trouble is, I can't think of any good sub-200b heels who would fit. Tyler Breeze is so close....

    ... in fact, that might even be more perfect. Tyler Breeze wins the US title, and turns it into the Cruiserweight title, defining Cruiserweight as 206lbs or less. That makes him the definition of the cusp of physical perfection, gives him an opportunity to obsess about his weight to the tiniest degree, and of course it invalidates the previous holder's claim on the title as they're not eligible for it.

    That gif reminded me that Zack Ryder went for a 450 Splash during his Open Challenge match and it caught me completely by surprise.

    I still don't think labeling wrestlers as cruisers is a good idea in this day and age.

    As much as TNA rightfully gets shit on, the early days of the X Division was the right way to do it.

    It was more about the style wrestling, not weight class and let people move between the titles.

    Del Rio might miss Raw this Monday due to him being booked in AAA which they are advertising as his final appearance for the promotion.

    Oops, correction to my above post
    Alberto is still scheduled to appear in Monterrey on Sunday, which is being promoted as the last chance to see Alberto in Monterrey (with AAA). There’s still no new information on what he’ll be doing with AAA. AAA sent out an interview with Johnny Mundo pointing towards a match with Rey Mysterio, which seems to take them both out of consideration for winning the title. It’s unclear how much those interviews are on autopilot or just subject to change. Unless the WON has a big scoop, we might not know much more about what’s going on with Alberto and the Mega title until Monday in Reynosa.

    Just put Del Rio with Mundo and Rey with either two winning the title.

    They had to put midcarders' names in big bold so Caristico and his former names weren't the largest thing on the list

    I hope he keeps changing his names so eventually there has to be a whole poster to list it all

    I'm pretty sure they're co-bookers at this point, so I have to imagine any deal outside of WWE needed to include that clause.

    But that’s all off the table. Rodriguez signed a deal that multiple sources have said was for a $1,450,000 per year downside (and others who wouldn’t give a figure indicated something in that ballpark) with a reduced schedule, which is largely because WWE felt they needed an Hispanic star.

    That'll do it.

    How dare you insult Barbaro Cavernario like that, the dudes awesome, and he won the En Busca de un Idolo tournament last year and was in the Best of Super Juniors.

    There is an argument to be made that during 1997, when WCW was white hot, Hall, Nash and Hogan (and everyone else) were actually underpaid in regards to how well WCW was drawing at the time.

    This Gable/Jordan v Gargano & Ciampa match from NXT is so good.

    Edit - Way better ring gear from Nia Jax.

    I knew about that (plus PWG's near their home/family) but this is the first time in years ROH has allowed someone in a contract with them to simultaneously do PWG and I'm glad to see it

    The Bucks are really smart and that's something not seen or appreciated often in the business

    I guess wrestling Observer says Barrett and Sheamus are officially a tag team and not just a temporary thing? Assumedly Rusev would also be involved if his injury turns out to not be legit.

    I think it's a great move. The Tag Division needs more heels, and big bruisers, and the two are actually really fun together. Plus it keeps Sheamus out of the singles title scene for a while.

    I was there for that injury. It was super weird, and I don't think there is any way that was how they had the match planned to go. The match was really short and Rusev legit looked like he was hurt. I didn't see how it happened, but the way he stood there working his arm after the injury was scary. Hope he recovers ok.

  • Options
    BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Yeah I just finished Main Event and that was a super super weird finish.

    Like, it looked like a work but felt like it was legit just because of how sudden everything ended and how Neville just kinda stood there while Rusev threw a tantrum and the episode ended with him just getting into a ref's face and the whole thing seemed off

    Konnan/MLW think it's a torn bicep, Dave hasn't heard anything except it's a legit injury (which duh, why would they do an injury angle on Main Event of all places)

    And yeah they're a team now, so yay Sheamus gets something to do for at least a bit and yay it's with Barrett so I'm really happy about that

  • Options
    BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    Yeah I am super super into the idea of Barrett and Sheamus being two surly brawlers who were out drinking one night and got into a bar fight and cleaned house and went "wait...." and realized if they fight together they can punch way more people

    Yeah I'm also into Sheamus and Barrett being a tag team. Especially since it gives Sheamus something to do other than fail to cash in his briefcase.
