Friday Night Party Thread: December 11, 2020

WE MADE IT!

Tonight, the Thunderdome continues, but in St. Petersburg, Florida at Tropicana Field!  Apparently the NBA would like their court back, so Vince is heading to the Trop — and believe me, the Rays could be in the middle of their pennant-raising ceremony and there’d STILL be enough room for wrestling, given how sparse the fan attendance tends to be in Tampa Bay.  Fortunately, we’re three months away from that being an issue, so Vince has a place that’ll allow him to ride out to WrestleMania.

The big hullabaloo today is that Vince wants Keith Lee and Otis (among others) to take extra classes with Drew Gulak.  Multiple ways to look at this: one way is to say that Vince is somehow unimpressed with them and thinks they need to learn more.  Another way is that he wants them to diversify their game — after all, Gulak is one of the best at chain wrestling and a ground game, and if Lee and especially Otis can becomes great at that, they can be pushed as multi-faceted threats.  The truth may lie somewhere in between — plus, it’s not like either man has to miss much time, given the Orlando to Tampa drive can be done in a day.

A couple people said they liked the AEW/Impact show I fantasy booked, so thank you.

And now, your AEW Dark Match of the Week — the newly-minted Varsity Blondes of Brian Pillman Jr and Griff Garrison face off against Dark Order members Alex Reynolds and Colt Cabana!

All right, folks, we’ve been over the rules.  I want you to obey the mod’s instructions at all times.  I expect a good clean thread.  Now, touch gloves, go to your keyboards, and come out posting!

Enjoy the weekend!
