    Lol Fenix talking about only a dislocation and will need a few weeks of rest. Dude is not human.

    I hate seeing limbs bent in the wrong direction, I actively avoid every sport and mma injury people talk about, but last night was right in my face multiple times. I was horrified. I'm glad this alien is ok though.

    I watched Dynamite on my phone in the airport so didn't notice the injury (actually thought Luchasaurus was hurt). Will definitely not be going back to watch the replay after hearing you guys describe it.

    I just happened to see it live before the replay. Just happened to laser focus on his arm bending backward. Fucking awful.

    Apparently Joe was offered a role backstage with NXT and turned it down I guess in the hopes to wrestle again. Given his concussion history I hope he doesn’t.

    I missed you... Got you in now.

    If anyone else sent money and isn't listed tag me. But I believe I have everyone now

    I do have a payment via PayPal from someone with R. R. initials if they want to tag me and let me know who they are.

    I have peacock premium via comcast (free of charge) and I know its on peacock plus. Don't believe it will be on Peacock Free tier. I'm sure streams will be a plenty and posted in the thread.

    Watching Okada vs. Ospreay now from NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 16 Night 2. At 5.75 by WON, going to be tough for the wrestling universe to top that the remainder of the year.

    Seems like WWE wants to merge the world titles for the men and women.

    Charlotte entering the Rumble, wins and challenges Becky to headline night one

    Roman vs Brock on night two… my guess is one or both face someone night one

    Sammy vs Dustin for the interim TNT title is kind of perfect, if Dustin wins and then we get Cody vs Dustin II to unify the titles. I’m not a Cody fan but the match those two had was incredible and it could be really fun again with Cody acting like a heel.

    Think the split will stay in place outside of the world champs. They will float.

    I don’t mind that idea with one champ. But two makes it really weird and seems like they’ve done a poor job building challengers on the respective brands. Smackdown was a lot better tonight though. Hopefully they’re kicking it into gear now that we’re in Mania season.

    According to Wikipedia, they only have 58 male wrestlers now, and about 2/3 of them are basically irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, seems like getting rid of the brand split would be reasonable.

    What titles would be getting unified? There is only one TNT title.

    In MMA when’s a champion is hurt they often make an interim belt for someone to win and defend until the champ is back, at which point the belts are unified. Since AEW is trying to sell itself as a real sport, it makes sense.

    Same, allows you to elevate the IC/US title when the other show is featuring the world champ storyline.

    I would do away with women's tag titles as well… just stupid from the start given the lack of depth they had then.

    Not sure if I would be against merging the tag title either.


    Also agreed on Smackdown. Solid show. Rumble setting up to be a good event.

    Bobby vs Brock
    Rollins vs Roman
    Both rumble matches.

    Ruby Soho does absolutely nothing for me. Hope we bring in some more women who were recently cut, the division is still way too thin. She had no business being in that tag tonight after just losing in the finals.
