Watched that vice bruiser Brody show. Man I wish I could have been at the Budokan for a Brody main event. Crowd was wild for him.

Reading the description for the latest episode of Talk is Jericho.

An episode about the assassination of JFK? The fuck?

if anyone had any doubt that Jericho is the least cool person in the world, here's Corey Taylor to help with the angle

Can she arrest Dream to stop him from tweeting?
Mio knows the evils of structures that exist to maintain the statuesque and protect property over the vulnerable. She knows that in a just society Dream wouldn't have grew to be a sycophant to those with unimaginable capital regardless of how they made it. She knows you can only get away with cop killing by becoming a cop:

AXS TV is giving professional wrestling its own night: “New Japan Pro Wrestling” and “WOW – Women of Wrestling” are moving from Fridays to Saturdays, TheWrap has learned exclusively.

Starting July 13, those summer Saturday nights will feature an eight-week recap of “WOW” Season 1 matches. The show’s 24-episode second season premieres on Sep. 7 at 8/7c, when a stable of new and returning Superheroes — WOW’s branding for its wrestlers — will try to take the belt off of Tessa Blanchard.

Among all that other all-female action, “WOW – Women of Wrestling” Season 2 will also feature a single-elimination tournament to crown tag team champions.

“WOW” founder David McLane and Stephen Dickey will again provide the analysis and commentary for Season 2.

“WOW” will lead in to “New Japan Pro Wrestling,” which will air at 9/8c on AXS TV.

To kick off the rebranded Saturdays, AXS TV will present a special live broadcast of Night 1 of NJPW’s G1 Climax 29 Tournament. The Dallas, Texas event begins July 6 at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.

After that, every Saturday night, AXS TV will air two hours of the tourney, which will be called by Kevin Kelly. AXS TV’s same-day coverage will also feature the A Block Final on Aug. 10. Special coverage of the B Block Final will air on Aug. 17, and the Tournament Final comes to cable on Aug. 24.

Ordinarily, being scheduled on a Saturday would be a bad thing for a TV show. In this case, the move will actually allow for much faster turnaround of NJPW events, as you can get a taste of through Climax 29 coverage.


Previously, the Saturday night New Japan events would have to wait until the following Friday to air on AXS TV. Now, Saturday shows will air on cable television less than 24 hours after they take place, which ought to be music to NJPW fans’ ears.

The scheduling change also pulls New Japan Pro Wrestling away from WWE’s “SmackDown Live,” which moves to Fridays on Fox this fall. That series currently airs Tuesday nights on USA Network.

In a new interview with ComicBook.com this week, Cody Rhodes explained Pac's current status with the company, assuring fans that he isn't leaving AEW.

"It's kind of a current, ongoing situation in terms of creative differences," Rhodes said. "It's the term we use, it's not everyone's favorite term to hear. But I love Pac, he's amazing. He's done a great job post-WWE with what he's done with Dragon Gate, what he's done with Rev Pro. And really the only thing I can say about it, because it is an ongoing situation, is that Pac is still part of AEW. It's something we're actively working on and making it happen. He's a big part of AEW."

After confirming that AEW would be traveling to the UK for a future event, Rhodes hinted that a rematch between Pac and Page is being worked on for a future show.

"That match, if people were not fulfilled with getting it for free on YouTube, they definitely will probably get a chance to see that match in the future," Rhodes said. "But it's an ongoing situation."

I often wonder why exactly WWE saw fit to give Jinder Mahal the big belt and revolve the a show around him, especially considering his current position

Was it just a congrats for getting vascular?

Yes. At the time people thought it was a build-up to an Indian tour but I think that was just made up.

I guess it WAS a buildup for the tour but Jinder was such a failure as the champion they just scrapped it lol. Jinder lost the belt to AJ like a month before the tour.

Shane McMahon is the worst, the absolute worst. His striking is a fucking meme and his triangle is first day beginner level of sloppiness. He's going to have a heart attack in that ring
