We made it!
TONIGHT: the WWE conducts a Draft to re-shuffle their roster a bit! Rules are available, but I can’t be bothered to look them up.
ALSO TONIGHT: Andy PG Does Japan, Volume 2! I have compiled a playlist of 6 big matches. We’ll do the watchalong at 10PM USET, and I’ll post the link around 9:45. The list includes one match certified by Diamond Dave Meltzer as five stars… from the 80s. We’ll see if things hold. Also, some joshi tags and some NOAH.
Monday, Mike reviews Uncensored 1996 and we see if the main event was enough to break his brain. (Hint: how could it not be?)
AEW Dark on Tuesday has fourteen matches lined up, because more wrestling is MORE WRESTLING. Big things: a four-way of tag wrestlers, Griff Garrison battles Colt Cabana, Red Velvet is moving to the Winners’ Circle, and Matt Sydal battles Sonny Kiss. But all that pales to this blog’s main event: CUTLER/AVALON II — THIS TIME IT’S NOT ENDING IN A DOUBLE COUNTOUT (WE HOPE)!
Folks, I talk about character beats all the time and how much I love them, so here’s the first win for Pillman and Garrison. The fact that they celebrate it like they’ve won the titles is so awesome. I also like how Excalibur and Taz talk about it. They both have points — it’s just one win, but it could be the first of many.
All right, folks, we went over the rules in the back. I expect you to follow the mods’ instructions at all times. I want a good, clean thread. Now touch gloves, go to your keyboards, and let’s come out posting.
Enjoy the weekend!
