Becky has been the best main roster thing in years I feel like. 

 

Read on the ol internet that Bryan proposed the heel turn himself, so hopefully he actually has ideas for it and gets to execute those ideas free of creative? Maybe?

Survivor series was better then I expected. Charlotte moment was the best and the Bryan match became intriguing even though I didn’t expect him to win.

Jeez I had no idea this footage existed.  It is Jim Cornette yelling at a Dairy Queen employee because he had ordered a large order of food and the worker thought he was joking.  Cornette loses it and gets out of the car to yell at her.
 
 
Its a 6 minute video but most of the good stuff is in the first 2 minutes.  He has a van full of Smokey Mountain wresters in the van and one of them had a camera.  Not sure who grabbed the footage, a young Chris Jericho and Lance storm are apparently in the van but not the ones filming.
 
edit, this is roughly 1994 or thereabouts.

NSFW obviously given it's John Oliver. Nothing new in this honestly for those who follow wrestling more seriously but to the more casual fans who don't follow the behind the scenes stuff this might be a bit eye opening. WWE has already responded to this saying the piece is one sided and has offered Oliver tickets to Wrestlemania. I'm pretty sure Oliver has another Last Week Tonight taping happening that Sunday afternoon so I'm pretty sure he will decline the WWE's offer.

Offering him tickets is a very WWE response to serious criticism.

I fully agree that it’s nothing new but outside pressure for them to change is never a bad thing.

Was it the longest Wrestlemania on record?  Nevertheless I liked it and hope they don't try to undo everything in the next two days.

 

P.S.: Takeover was great.

Tom Magee vs Bret Hart is going up on the network this Monday after Raw, alongside a documentary regarding it. Never thought I'd see the day.

Between this and The Last Battle of Atlanta showing up a couple of years ago, the Network is easily the best thing this company is doing right now.

It's like WWE wants me to watch AEW next week. I stopped watching after the "Superstar Shakeup" and cancelled my Network subscription.

 

Based on what I'm hearing from Money In The Bank,  I might have made a good decision.

Watching that fantastic ladder match, followed by the entire lack of logic and reason behind the finish really made me realize that I'm not bored of wrestling, just sick of WWE. I had cancelled my subscription as well.

 

Ready for AEW, I hope they kill it.

I'll be keeping the network for now for NXT plus the main roster PPVs.  I'll admit I haven't really watched Raw or Smackdown lately. 

 

NXT TV plus the takeovers is worth $10 a month in my opinion.

Takeovers are excellent standalone shows, but within the larger context of WWE they're just depressing now. I can't watch them without thinking "all of this will be ruined soon". Going back to watch previous Takeovers is legitimately a bummer.

They sure did. There were some technical difficulties here and there, but overall a fantastic show with no bad matches whatsoever.

 

And as promised, AEW had plenty of surprises.  Now if only they could bring down the $50 price tag.

WWE Network no longer works on my old Apple TV, I should have paid attention to the emails that I got from WWE.  What does everybody else use to access WWE Network?  Should I get a new Apple TV (I would use it for other things)?  Roku device?

I use a Fire TV stick. Simple and efficient, $30 right now.

Double or Nothing was such a great show. I don't remember the last time a wrestling show left me this excited for what is coming next. (Although Cody vs Dustin was a bit much for me - a great story, but I could barely watch halfway through) 

 

$50 is steep, but with them not doing monthly PPVs I'm okay with that. I feel like this show was a good value.

Was number 5080 "in-line" for tickets. All sold out by the time I made it. Bummer.

 

Oh well, still excited to have a house party for this one! And who knows, maybe some of the HUNDREDS of tickets on StubHub will still be available come time for the event for cheap.

I'm disappointed I wasn't able to get tickets, I had tons of fun at All In last year.

I have to give credit to AEW and their Youtube channels (All Elite Wrestling Wresting, Being the Elite, Nightmare Family) for releasing a video every 2-3 days. Even without a TV deal, they are doing a great job hyping their next shows.

 

 

Fyter Fest, meanwhile, will be FREE on Bleacher Report Live when it airs on June 29.

I hadn’t watched Raw in about two months but watched this week.

It....wasn’t too bad?

AEW Fight For The Fallen is this Saturday.  It's strange that they have a "Buy In" preshow for a free event.

WWE highly advertising their co-show with Evolve (more than any NXT show I've seen) that coincidentally runs the same time as an AEW benefit show. Good look
