Daily News Update – 06.12.21

Apparently Skip the Dishes imploded yesterday because their website crashed and burned and not only did I lose my money, but I never got my food either.  And it’s still not back as I’m writing this, with no explanation from the company anywhere.  Not cool.

Also, I’m kind of disappointed that GLOW didn’t blow up the blog like I thought it would.  It did good, like WWF Superstars type of response, but it felt like it should have been a bigger deal because it hit a lot of sweet spots for the fanbase here (nostalgia, cheesy 80s nonsense, terrible wrestling).  Oh well, I’m definitely carrying on regardless.

“Ninotchka’s Reign, Part One”

So last night, I’m chilling and checking my emails, and reader Chris George just casually sends me this whopper…

“Hey Scott,

 

  You want an easy show to review that’s a quick watch and get a million billion hits?  On Tubi they have 29 episodes of GLOW.”

Tonight! It’s the NWA Powerrrrrrrrrr PPV follow up show!

Plus AEW Dark!

Also NXT. Apparently there’s a Takeover this weekend. I literally didn’t even realize because they’re doing a shit job of promoting it. The main event is 17 guys in an NXT title match. Winner gets immunity at the next round of budget cuts. Loser goes to RAW.

Have a cromulent evening.

The SmarK Rant for NWA Powerrr – When Our Shadows Fall 06.06.21

The SmarK Rant for NWA Powerrr: When Our Shadows Fall (06.06.21)

Live from Atlanta, GA

Your hosts are Joe Galli & Tim Storm & Velvet Sky

There’s a circus theme for this one, which doesn’t really have anything to do with anything.  Also, they’ve replaced the fake crowd of wrestlers from the TV show with a few legit rows of fans.

If you’d like to check this show out, hit it up on FiteTV via my link below:

Correction:  TONIGHT is the Mayweather v. Paul “fight” on PPV.  Just in case you were ordering it due to having no more need for self-respect in your life.

Also, the NWA PPV is this afternoon, with Nick Aldis defending against Trevor Murdoch, and I will be reviewing that one.
