    It was nice to finally meet you! I've been going to PCW shows for over a decade now and they never fail to entertain. Castle was really great and seemed to handle the travel issues like a pro. Speaking of being a pro, sort of a funny story from after the show. Typically I'm not the type to take a lot of selfies or line up for photos with people but after 5 hours, my girlfriend and I had consumed a few drinks and the line was moving pretty good so we figured what the hell, lets say thanks for dealing with the headaches of getting here and grab a quick photo. I had everything lined up for a quick pic but pressed the wrong button and closed the camera app instead of taking a photo. Without even hesitating, Castle grabbed the phone, said "here, I got a good angle" and snapped the photo. It wasn't until we were walking out the door that it dawned on us that being the pro he is and having probably dealt with his fair share of tipsy photo seekers, he knew damn well how to keep that line moving. No way he was waiting for my dumb ass to figure out how to take a proper pic. 👍

    It's funny to watch the AEW guys start up with partnerships right off the hop and a plan that I think will help the wrestling industry overall while the WWE continues to take the "**** you! Give us your shirt!" approach. Speaking of helping the industry, I think there could be a lot more opportunities for local guys when AEW comes through their town. They're talking about keeping the roster fairly small so they can make sure there's a plan for everyone on it. I get the feeling the roster size in conjunction with the higher emphasis on wins and losses might result in the return of the old-school jobber type. It makes way more sense to have your lower & mid card guys going over locals who can put together a decent match as opposed to trading wins and losses against each other and I think the AEW crew feels the same way.

    It's a good interview. A good look into how serious Tony Khan is about starting a wrestling promotion and what his vision is.

    It's not an effective method, that's for sure. It's drunk logic at it's finest/worst.

    Uso's actions kinda read like he thought "oh ****, she's gonna get arrested."

    The next mention of that cheeto-dicked baboon better be a video of him getting stunnered... Anyway, a red hot string of local shows starts on Friday with PCW's Top Cock w/ Dalton Castle. Should be a super fun show, I've got my tickets. They've been knocking it out of the park with their shows lately. Also grabbed tickets to WPW's Barrcade a couple weeks later with Joey Ryan. Again, should be a really fun show. Joey Ryan's booked as guest GM but that was arranged when it still looked like he'd be out with an injury right now so we'll see if that changes at all. Decided to skip out on the CWE show with Dan Severn the night after WPW. Their shows are kind of a pain in the ass to get to when you don't own a vehicle and live west of downtown. I can walk to WPW in 5 mins and it's a 15 minute bus ride to PCW. Transcona... I don't even know how the hell to take a bus out there and cabbing round trip ends up being an expensive night. Either way, get out and see some damn wrestling!

    and shockingly similar to "The Real Man's Man" Steven Regal 😮

    Jericho also uses a style that fits his age these days. It's dirty, lots of cheap shots. You can play up the angle of the crafty veteran being too wily for the younger more athletic Omega. And as far as the difference between the NJPW US tour roster and the AEW roster. Are you kidding me? That tour is the leftovers after AEW took the top North American stars from New Japan.

    alright, so our odds of Jericho/Omega in Winnipeg one day just went from 1 in 1,000,000,000 to 1 in 1,000,000

    The Gender Pay Gap

    I've avoided this thread for weeks and after popping in... Yep. It's as off the rails as I imagined. Good job! As soon as I saw Jordan Peterson used as an argument I knew this thing was completely ******.

    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    $120,000 is as high as I go on Loffler and even that doesn't sound quite right. Count me as another that likes him but is willing to see him go.

    I hope you gave them just enough of the Kenny/AJ match to start a proper bidding war for the whole tape 😎 On an unrelated note, are there physical tickets available for Top Cock or are you just doing it all online?

    It's even less like Sting in TNA. Sting went there after working old timers tours for two years. Jericho's coming in on the heels of some red hot programs in Japan. You say he didn't move the needle but I think most people would agree that he was the primary draw for last years Wrestle Kingdom which had one of the highest attendance figures in recent years as well as a huge increase in online subscriptions from North America. Not to mention his merch sales are through the roof. He's the one guy his age who has managed to keep himself relevant. Besides, the rest of the roster is already shaping up to be pretty damn good. They already have a good mix of styles and I'm sure there's a couple more big names to come. You keep on referring to indie fans and indie wrestlers but NJPW and even ROH & Impact are pretty far from the indies and that's where most of these guys will be coming in from. It's not like they're signing guys that would be wrestling in the Boogies parking lot otherwise. In recent years I've watched both Wrestlemanias and Wrestle Kingdoms with people who aren't/weren't wrestling fans. Guess which of the two turned people into fans? If AEW offers a proper alternative to the WWE and it's easy to access for viewers I really think they have a legit shot at being successful.

    Dude, Jericho has been one of the best things in wrestling the past couple of years. AEW is damn lucky to have him. Comparing him to Kurt Angle in TNA is so laughable that I'm not even going to bother with the rest of that drivel.

    I'm sure there's a price that Kenny can't refuse from WWE but without being able to see the money both WWE & AEW have on the table it's pretty tough to judge what his best option is right now.
