It is a shame WWE is so creatively bankrupt, Becky was a huge star coming out of Wrestlemania and now she is just like every other woman on the roster.

Shayna shouldn't leave her computer unattended when Trevor Mann comes over.

A Ziggler/Miz feud.

In 2019.
The Miz needs it. He has done a great job getting over as a babyface with the absolute dogshit they've been giving him since pairing him with, THE BEST IN THE WOOOOOORLD SHANE MCMAHON, he has been the sacrificial babyface geek more than once when they needed someone to get squashed. He has to stay strong enough to sustain his reality show and if they bury him anymore then his value in direct to video action movies goes down. Let him kill the stand-up comic to get some wins. (If he loses this feud scratch everything I said.)

Lmao at Natalya saying Lexi sucks. That’s a bit harsh, I don’t think it was just her who was terrible in that match. Can’t remember the last decent Natalya match and she’s trained by one of the greatest wrestling families ever.
Natalya's match with Ronda was one of the best matches of Ronda's run.

Nikki Cross has been damn near ruined by the teaming with Alexa. No has given a shit about Natalya in the ring for years, and Alexa Bliss was never anything special.
If the end game here is a double turn it'll be great. Give me Nikki turning on Alexa and subverting expectations and then give me Broken Alexa who learned the power of friendship but is now alone. Alexa's a great, natural talker and their current format of no wrestling during commercials can be used to mask a lot of Alexa's gaps and showcase her strength. (mic work) Double turn, TV feud with one eventual blow-off match on pay-per-view and they both come out stronger. Nikki's wild and crazy gimmick does unhinged and menacing well. It would make sense and be fun if she was a heel. Alexa has a natural babyface story with her eating disorder.

Followed! Thanks. Was super intrigued after seeing them on the AEW show. Tons of personality and potential in both performers.
If you are willing to tumble down an even further rabbit hole, Riho, from the other tag team has been wrestling in a promotion called Gatoh Move. It's great. I've been casually consuming it for awhile but have really dug in recently and of the three promotions, TJPW, Stardom and Gatoh Move I may find it the most satisfying right now. All three are GREAT.

They really do a terrible job at minimizing Bliss' weaknesses and highlighting her strengths

Shame really
This. Give me babyface Alexa.

Who the fuck is Matt Taven?
A man who wrestles well in exactly one promotion. His work everywhere else is bad. He is so hated by the three dozen people of still watching ROH that he might be emblematic of the final fall of that promotion.

I see we're at the next iteration of ooops I shouldn't have been so angry when Charlotte was getting pushed.
I think people who get mad at Charlotte pushes come in two varieties. There are the people who struggle with the overall state of the women's division and the failure to try and build people as needed. (Not having a big heel ready for Becky after Mania.) Then there are the people who buy into Charlotte's booking. Charlotte comes out and says something about being superior, being a legacy and how she is the company favorite and people just let themselves get worked not realizing that while there may be some element of truth to that at this point a significant percentage of it is a work because Vince knows it draw heat. Just like the whole 'Brock hates wrestling' thing.

Hope Ospreay neck isn't too bad and he can continue in the G1. Hopefully he can take it easy with the next couple of matches and heal up. Lets see his next opponent is............Ibushi............fuck.

She became bigger but , she doesnt become the star until the rhonda stuff
If we want to be reductive and lay Becky's ascent as the feet of one person then it probably needs to Nia Jax. Bloody Becky is the only legitimately iconic moment on Raw in years. But it wouldn't be prudent to do that as ascribing Becky's ascent to a single contributing factor is reductive and misses a whole bunch of stuff.

Akito has named Ikemen Jiro as his next challenger for the KO-D Extreme Title.

So we know who's winning that one.

(Spoiler: It's not the guy that's headed to WWE.)

I must say, Moxley stealing a Young Lion, adopting him and calling him shooter might one of the best wrestling storylines in the past 5 years.

I'm into the idea of TJPW International title but unsure how it'll actually end up working.

This is just going to prepare you for Japan where no matter when you're there cool matches happen the day before and after you arrive.

Has everyone cool finished watching Peter Pan?
Wasn't able to watch the whole show but it's been really good so far and Asuka vs Akito was fucking amazing.

Natalya is getting a Summerslam match. Ughhhhhhhhhh.

People I'd rather see in that spot: Asuka, Kairi, Ember, Sonya, Mandy, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, Nikki Cross.
