      1. The whole three match series is awesome. First match is the only one not on the Network I believe. It’s on youtube, mislabeled as August 1975. Great match

      1. This is the kind of crap that keeps me from getting the network. When they edit out the music, they edit out the pops too. It’s so annoying.

        1. So underutilized it’s crazy.
          The guy can go on the mic and in the ring and should be a huge babyface.
          They have Lana right there to be used as a damsel in distress that can help this big monster of a guy gain sympathy.
          Recreating a little Macho/Elizabeth magic wouldn’t hurt.

  1. Am I the only one who Is a little bummed about Eva Marie leaving? I know she sucked in the Ring but imagine her as Smackdown Womens Champion somehow and the amount of heat she would have gotten even more.

    1. I absolutely loved her gimmick of being an embarrassingly incompetent wrestler who would piss off everyone in sight with her stupidity. She worked it to perfection. I still remember that big Mania tag where she actually pulled off a move without fucking up, and she was such a douche about it that she alienated her entire team. Also Asuka’s face when she they had their match and Eva would try stepping to her, like she couldn’t actually believe that someone could be that stupid and live. Also having some tag match with Nia Jax and Nia was basically eye rolling through the whole thing that she had to carry this piece of garbage. Lots of fun stuff like that.

      I haven’t exactly missed her, but I enjoyed that they found a way to maximise her character and perception in a fun way.

  2. The weather today where I am at (Wisconsin) really got me in the mood for college football. I need more hours in the day. How am I going to fit college football in with all the baseball and wrestling I have been watching?

  3. My first clear wresting memory had to be a squash match on Wrestling Challege with Tito Santana. I remember Jesse on commentary more than the match.

  4. 8/3 Watch list:

    10/30/10 DGUSA BxB Hulk and Homicide vs. Akira Tozawa and Jon Moxley (Ambrose)

    5/27/17 CHIKARA:

    Dez Peloton vs Crummels and Defarge (c)

    Ultramantis Black, Dasher Hatfield, Mr. Zero, Icarus, and Ophidian vs. Juan Francisco de Coronado, Hallowicked, Frightmare, El Hijo de Ice Cream, and Gran

    Travis Huckabee vs. Proletariat Boar of Moldova

    10-man tag was a treat, like a greatest hits of Chikara. No spoilers, but a historical moment towards the end made an exhibition match feel way more important. Gran Akuma is still really good.

    I also have a ton of DGUSA discs coming from their clearance sale.
