    Man, I just can't stop thinking about how shitty the What a Maneuver "screw you guys I'm leaving social media etc etc" statement was. It's almost impressive how badly the whole thing was handled.

    I was hoping to laze around and watch indie shows this weekend, but it looks like GCW won the war last year and all the shows will be on Fite for me to pay for and nothing is on IWTV this year. I should probably use this time to catch up on older indie shows or just watch AJW instead.

    Also Reggie proposed to Dana Brook and then Tozawa proposed to Tamina and both accepted.

    I remember when Tozawa was wrestling amazing matches, I miss those times.

    Tozawa was primed to print money from merch sales for the WWE with insane crowd reactions and they decided just to do nothing at all with him instead.

    They just hate money

    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.

    There's honestly not a whole lot I'm looking forward to this weekend. The Impact show looks wild, and I have a feeling Gringo Loco's WRLD on Lucha is gonna be the sleeper hit of the Collective so I definitely plan to watch those.

    Aside from those the only things I'm really interested in seeing are Planet Death (because Jimmy Lloyd vs Sadika has the possibility of going up in flames) and Alex Colon vs John Wayne Murdoch for the GCW UltraViolent Championship (which for some odd reason ISN'T on Planet Death).

    Yeah I'm hoping I can catch the replay of Zelo Pro if they upload it on youtube since I'll be working when it airs and hopefully Zicky Dice keeps a vod of his show on twitch up so I can see Masha Slamovich wrestle a bear.

    I think the RoH show could be really good, but they tricked me into buying their 'last' show so I'll just wait until Tony announces whatever streaming plan he has for RoH and watch it then.

    The Mark Hitchcock Memorial show tonight should be good and I might get that replay to watch.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about Zicky's show because it's on Twitch! That's a must-see.

    I'm interested if Cody appears what his reaction and depiction will be, but other than that I haven't watched WWE in probably 18 months now and I really don't get that there are people legit interested in Ronda Rousey matches or Brock vs Roman main eventing Wrestlemania, again.

    Quick question, because I do want to watch wrestling this weekend but I'd really rather not watch WWE. What are the best streaming services to get the best variety of shows this weekend?

    They're isn't one, the best option is to pay FiteTV $75 to get all the GCW affiliated shows.

    Alternatively get IWTV and just watch random indie shows to get the same feeling.

    The amazing thing about that show is that it was an entirely last minute "holy crap wtf do we do" idea after NOVA Pro shut down and pulled out of the weekend. And thank god they did.

    I should sub to IWTV again just to watch it again with my wife, I think she'd love it.

    Especially that Best Friends 1 minute Iron Man match between Trent and Chuck that got restarted repeatedly because they circled around each other talking shit until the bell rang. Fucking hell I loved all the stupid ass stipulation matches. That is my wrestling.

    EDIT: Oh fuck I forgot the 7 out of 13 falls match where the two guys nut shotted each other repeatedly, giving up falls. Fucking christ.

    And I love how there's totally a serious Shinjiro Otani vs Jonathan Gresham match smack in the middle of all the bullshit because that had already been booked for the canceled show so they just kept it.

    He already has too many last names, he can't do that.

    That was also my first Jonathan Gresham match.

    My second was, as far as I can tell, in the same venue, vs. Orange Cassidy in a 2/3 match.

    Anyone having trouble hearing the commentary on the Show tonight

    It’s more or less inaudible for me

    Frequently. I usually wonder if it's not a TSN thing or something, since I can hear clips on Twitter much more clearly. Like the Will Smith jab from Max, I didn't even catch it live, though I did hear the rest.
    JR with some “great” commentary that match

    What did he say? (Asked for the above reason.)

    first of all I figured it out not sure if its what they are sending out or my receiver but its mixing the center channel down REAL LOW ill have to fix it before next week

    and I don't have the exact quote but JR mentioned Toni's hairstyle and Schiavone was audibly weirded out/confused by the comment

    I "Awesome'd" this because I was under the impression that Schiavone mistook JR saying "Toni" for "Tony" (and because there's no "laugh" reaction), but reading further, I'm wondering if I took the wrong thing away from it.

    Oh also Fightful is reporting that they are letting superstars earn third party income again. The way its worded is WWE is still taking a cut though.

    Until then, my way of life will not change. I will continue to slaughter wrestlers from tomorrow, and if anyone asks for help, I will generously lend a hand, because it will expand the territory of the empire.

    Dude protected a six year old and then protected kayfabe. Fucking legend.

    I'll believe a lot of things, but an indie show having good commentary is a step too far.
