    I just saw a picture of Charlotte, and not having kept up with Raw outside reading reports/forums, she was unrecognizable to me.

    I was just griping that if they're going to make such a big deal about someone like Eva coming back to the roster, maybe she actually ought to climb into the ring for once instead of WWE just using her as a valet and a joke character. I mean, why not use that time to build up someone else? How much are they paying her to just show up and catch heat when they could be paying someone who's actually capable in the ring and could literally have done the same thing for the new talent they're introducing to the roster?

    I just don't get it, honestly.

    I swear this isn't a bit, but none of the released wrestlers were able to generate heat on the same level as Eva Marie does by simply existing, which is why she has a ton of value to the company. You can sell a ton of other wrestlers to the fans just by putting them in Eva Marie's general orbit.

    Yeah at some point (recently!) it's like she swapped her entire head for someone else's.

    (Apologies if that triggers a Return to Oz flashback for my fellow olds.)

    Chris Brookes vs Tetsuya Endo - King of DDT First Round Match

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZrMOAg9rHE

    Brookes may have the height advantage, but Endo has the tan advantage.

    I really enjoyed this match, my favorite of the first round. Although it was super rude of Brookes to make that cheap shot before the bell rang! Tetsuya would never do such a thing.

    And with that my tournament picks are 100% so far 8-)

    If it was all her idea to do so, that's fantastic, and good for her! But given the fact that she is in the WWE, I veeeeerrryyyy highly doubt she wasn't at least partially pressured into it.

    I will never ever forget that they originally pushed her to drop "Flair" from her ring name because she looks too much like her dad.

    Honestly she had covid so I think it was moreso losing muscle mass than surgical work

    A friend of mine who does pro-level boxing lost 3lbs of muscle mass in like a week from it, and women especially have to put more work in to get that back even at the pro athlete level

    Other news AEW is going to secure a venue to tape Dark from so I guess its going to turn into a studio show like WCW Saturday Night was

    Elevation will get shorter and be on the road with Dynamite (great for local indy talent!) and Rampage will be taped/live that way too.

    does MJF even.... have.... fans? that would care enough to buy a coin?

    you wouldn't hate-buy a crypto would you? does he know this?

    but maybe some people actually like MJF although its hard to imagine

    I have liked MJF for quite some time as I think he's one of the best heels in the business.

    I am one of those people who thinks MJF staying in heel mode is a great thing.

    Full disclosure I also hate kids so I just generally find it hilarious when he flips them off, and even more hilarious when they flip him back and he reacts and they get giggles out of it.

    This MJF crypto thing is not any of that and looks and feels super carny and grifty and boy there's just no other way to interpret it other than a scam.

    Yeah, it's really sad and surprising.

    For anyone who's not familiar with him, he was primarily a ref for Chikara but also worked for CZW and Evolve. He also had a wealth of indie wrestling knowledge and was constantly posting old and interesting matches.

    Today's TJPW main event of NEO Biishiki-gun vs Miyu Yamashita & Maki Itoh for the Princess Tag Championship was a fun watch. Mei Saint-Michelle has obviously been getting good advice from Martha.



    NEO Biishiki-gun retains! Praise Sakisama!

    Looking forward to seeing Sakisama go up against Miyu for the Princess of Princess Championship. Will Miyu's grappling and skull kicks be enough to overcome the best French bread and champagne? We'll find out.

    Yeah, using Eva Marie as a heater for Piper seems like a pretty great move.

    The entire plot line that is going to happen is right their interactions post match and when Piper turn on Eva the crowd will go wiiliiiiiiiild.

    Side note: Eva's gear look terrible. Give me All Red or give me death.

    I have a thoughtful and infrequently updated blog about games http://whatithinkaboutwhenithinkaboutgames.wordpress.com/

    I made a game, it has penguins in it. It's pay what you like on Gumroad.

    Currently Ebaying Nothing at all but I might do in the future.

    If there's anyone who's gonna end up getting shanked by a fan like the heels of old while we're in an era where everyone knows about kayfabe, it's MJF.

    And he would laugh about it.

    It sounds pretty easy to goad Nick Gage to fight if that's what you're after.
