    I think he's referring to the previous page AI generated t-shirt design discussion.

    It also doesn't really look like Kenny at all.

    $70 for 4 jars of pickles, jfc

    Almost as disappointing as the MJF crypto he started last year.

    It's actually $70 for 3 jars of pickles. Crazy enough - the company's non-MJF pickles are already $18.75/jar for that size, so he's only marked them up about $5 each if you buy the variety pack. I'm not ordering any, but I do think it's a pretty high-quality product.

    Edit: That shirt looks more like Cyber-Richard Branson.

    I love pickles, I don't fucking 20 dollar love pickles

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    It doesn't really look AI generated to me. I'm not contending they haven't done it or that it isn't shitty or that this isn't AI generated, it just doesn't look to me like it is.

    But also I really fucking hate this, because trying to figure out if art is AI or not is this new ethical responsibility put upon consumers and sure sometimes I can tell but obviously sometimes I can't.

    Easy decision here is to just boycott their shit until they publicly address the problem.

    Zoom in on (Wish) Kenny's forehead or the collar of the jacket and it's very apparent

    Same with Uno's weird ass cowl and his disjointed pecs

    Neither of them even really look like the actual people, which a real artist would probably at least attempt

    ... anyway even if I liked MJF I think I'd pay for local pickles instead of 20 American Dollars for pickles with a label I could print off, at that budget

    Okay the more I'm looking at it the more I'm seeing it. Sorry I guess I don't have a keen eye for this shit and I find the whole thing depressing as fuck because it's not just AEW I gotta worry about, going forward.

    The good thing about the craft pickle boom is that pickles are incredibly easy to make as long as you have patience and a little extra fridge space, so you can pretty much replicate any wacky flavor you see for sale! I'm totally making that honey mustard variety this season.

    Making our own pickles and pickled asparagus and pickled eggs and salsa and relish is one of the first things my wife and I started doing together when we started dating. It's an extremely rewarding hobby, especially once you get a recipe you love, as you end up making way too much for yourselves and can share with others.

    Momo Kohgo had an entire human land on her head and had to be dragged out of the ring then stretchered out of the arena this past weekend, I sure hope she's ok for this. :( (I think it was her anyway)

    Sol Ruca tore her ACL last week, making her the 8th woman on the brand currently out with an ACL tear


    The last strength+conditioning coach for NXT talent overfocused on drills that historically stressed out talent's knees making them prone to injury. Reportedly the replacement/current coach changed things up and now has them overfocusing on heavy lifting, which...also tends to stress out knees making them prone to injury

    Other NXT injuries within the last six days include Indi Hartwell and Grayson Waller

    I can only ID like 3 of the women in that tweet. EDIT: Oh I missed the part in the text that said a few hadn't had debuts yet.

    And yeah Indi caught a dive Tuesday night and her ankle folded wrong. Not sure what happened to Waller but I assume it was the same night.

    Waller injured himself doing his finisher, so they ended that match early, apparently

  • NiryaNirya Registered User regular
    It probably doesn't help that women are more likely to suffer ACL injuries than men, but yeah that's not a great trend.

    Roderick Strong’s WWE deal actually expired in November of last year. Since WWE does not announce NXT departures and it wasn’t a release but a contract ending, it flew under the radar.

    The debut was timed for after Adam Cole’s return and locally in Florida (where he lives) to prevent Strong from being spotted traveling.

    It was also noted that Roderick Strong’s NXT departure was “so under the radar, he was listed on WWE.com well after he debuted for AEW.” Roddy Strong made his AEW debut at his own pace, after he took several months off to heal after being “banged up” for the last run of his NXT career.

    The report went on to say that Roderick Strong and AEW “had been quietly talking for some time about him coming in and came to a deal.” They also kept him hidden backstage prior to his AEW debut on Dynamite.

    ZSJ will tape a pizza cutter to his calf before locking in the armbreaker.

    Roman is staying on Smackdown, meaning the new title will be a Raw title.

  • bloodyroarxxbloodyroarxx Casa GrandeRegistered User regular
    Before the draft: The new title is actually earmarked for Seth, Cody’s story with Roman isn’t done yet


    The draft: Cody and Roman on separate brands and the new title exclusively on Cody’s brand

    The reality:

    Adrenaline in my soul
    SaudiMania
    Cody Rhodes




    I reserve the right to correct this if they do a double turn and re draft Cody to SD on Monday

    Remember that Bloodsport where Gage fought Killer Kross and came out swinging punches, and after 90 seconds Kross said fuck this and made him tap out in a sleeper?

    I imagine it will be something like that except ZSJ probably won't get on the mic afterwards and call out Bautista.

    ZSJ calling out Batista would be preferable over him calling out Bryan

    Batista showing up at a GCW show would be the fucking best. I want to see Big Dave wrestling on the Atlantic City pier.

    Legitimately meat to see how happy all three were to get the call-up. Rest of the draft is...weird, because they make a big event out of it and there's no real reason for the crowd to care

    I thought they had learned to hide behind dog whistles and just have all their black talent lose their titles to Brock in deflating ways.

    In unrelated news Bianca has been RAW Women's champion for over a year, the longest WWE title reign of a black superstar since MVP's US Title run.

    Odds are good that Bianca and Rhea will trade belts after Backlash, since Bianca was drafted to SD tonight. That will probably end the "longest reign" (at least it wasn't to Brock? Or Rhonda, I guess...) but they might weasel-word their way through this.
