Friday Night Get-Down: January 15, 2021

TONIGHT! Adam Pearce reluctantly becomes #1 Contender for the WWE Title at Royal Rumble even though he has backstage authority.  The reason is that he won a match for the honor, and apparently results in the ring can’t be overturned even by the Supreme Court.  As many Abridged Series would say: “Wrestling matches are SERIOUS BUSINESS.”

Tomorrow, Impact presents Hard to Kill, and even though that’s the name, fate is trying to kill it!  Already set for an empty studio in Nashville, the main event has to be changed as Alex Shelley has been pulled due to “unavoidable circumstances” (Shelley himself hasn’t elaborated).  However, Moose said you don’t always like your football teammates, so maybe they’ll work this out.

In addition, Deonna Purrazzo faces Taya Valkyrie for the women’s title, it’s a three way for the X Division title with Manik, Raju, and Chris Bey, we’ll re-instate the women’s tag titles, and Ethan Page goes one on one with Karate Man, a bizarre alter ego of… (checks notes)… Ethan Page.  This was always the logical conclusion to cinematics, wasn’t it?

Dynamite has added a match between Cody Rhodes and Peter Avalon.  If Pretty Peter doesn’t recoil in horror at Cody’s neck tattoo, why are we even here?

A few AEW Dark match have been loaded, but Top Flight vs Chaos Project isn’t one of them.  So instead, have a look at Bear Country, one of the best teams in New England, as they get a win over Baron Black and Nick Comoroto.

Also, remember to vote in the Doomies!  Time’s almost up, and Logan is in the back counting the official votes!

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

ENJOY THE WEEKEND!
