    Me and friend are going to a televised RAW on August 13th in Greensboro. It’s the last RAW before SummerSlam.

    Have fun. My last event was a RAW on December 6th, 2004. Lita best Trish for the title.

    What a boring taping. At least I got on TV though, we had 4th row seats on the lower concourse, end of the isle facing the main cameras. Wore my NWO shirt, black NEEF cat beanie and brought my Gold Eagle belt.

    Here is hoping for an awesome Smackdown.

    I'm gonna jump all over Space Suicide's wife and proclaim this - if booked the right way, The IIconics could end up being bigger and better heels than Alexa Bliss. They have extremely good mic skills and are practically there on in-ring skills. Give them a chance to break through into the main title picture or better, launch a women's tag title championship, and they'll be in a big WM spot next year.

    No shade!

    I rally for the IIconics. They need wins and to be bolstered up. They're my favorites behind Alexa.

    I love that they were called up but them seem like an afterthought these days. I know they need to lose and everyone can't always win but I think they've won two matches in 3 months?

    I bought the Undisputed Era shirt a few weeks ago when they had 40% off. I see they're having it again.

    Speaking of bae, she was on the latest #Cheapheat podcast!

    http://m.espn.com/general/cast?id=10116533&src=desktop

    A summary/abridged version from a post on the forum I’m a regular on:

    -Talks about guest reffing at the MSG house show this Saturday, says she has reffed a few times a before. Says you wouldn't think reffing was some intricate thing but it is Rosenberg asks if she is going to wear the legitimate ref attire or her attire with a ref shirt. She says her 1st time in NXT she wore a poofy skirt and the other it was basically a last minute thing so she just wore some yoga pants. Hints that now that she had a heads up she might put an attire together that is better than the 2 times before

    -Asked if she was having fun. Says she is having so much fun, even without the title it's a lot of fun but when you have the title you're on top of the division, you're a face of the company, it's really cool because you get to do more appearances but there is also a lot of pressure to it.

    -Talks about Larry-Steve, he weighs about 50 pounds, he's pretty stubborn

    -Rosenberg mentions how she worked him backstage at MITB when he saw her in make up after she had already won MITB telling him she had to go do an interview. She says technically she wasn't lying because she still had the interview it just got moved to after the show

    -MITB was her 2nd most memorable thing (behind her 1st title win)

    -Was nervous she wouldn't be able to reach the briefcase, mentions how she tried to grab it and still had to go up one step. Said if she was scared of heights she wouldn't have been able to do it because it is a little scary.

    -Rosenberg basically in a nice way asks about the hate she gets for her current workrate, she basically acknowledges the hate she gets for it but she's a bad guy, she doesn't think bad guys should be flashy, her job is to be hated but when she becomes a good guy you'll see a different skillset. But her job isn't to wow the crowd with in-ring ability it's to be hated and people get that much more mad when she wins a title because they say "oh she can't wrestle". She can work flashier but her job right now is to work the style she does and the fact the people are angry means she's doing her job.

    -Rosenberg talks about the irony of how she had real life body image issues and how her character has been a body image bully. She says the reason she has chosen to take it this far with it with her character is because these are real situations, these things happen and to be able to make the story as real as possible you have to commit to it She remembers speaking to Nia and they wanted to make the storyline mean something because they have both have had their body image issues and that's how she has been able to get her character to a deeper level where people look at her and say "god you're just rude". They wanted to make the storyline as real as possible to show this really happens and at the end the good guy will prevail and that's what happened at WM & Backlash. Said when she did that backstage segment with Mickie she basically method acted it and visualized the faces of girls she went to school with that body shamed. She had fun with the storyline because it was an issue she cares about.

    -Regarding social media, she's fine with people bashing the character because they are supposed to hate her but she's not ok with people disrespecting her personally because of her character she says people wouldn't go up to an actor that portrays a character they don't like on a tv show and bury them as a person, they would just say I don't like your character

    Ive been busy with work so i havent had a chance to post until now...

    Smackdown was EPIC! Part of it, as always, is sitting on the floor. This was the 5th time ive had the opportunity, we were in the middle of row six section 3, so right in front of the main camera. The last Smackdown I went to we sat ringside on the corner of the entrance ramp, that was insane being that close, but its still great being packed in like sardines anywhere on the floor! Something always snaps in my brain and I turn into a total mark. Im sure some of it has something to do with the fact that im a taper so I have to be quiet and statue-esque at concert, so wrestling gives me an outlet to get nuts.

    Man, I have more respect for her than ever. How can I hate her? She may not be the best wrestler of the division but she is good at what she does and knows what she's doing and is getting better at it. I also admire the fact that she is aware of her limitations in the ring but has managed to work around it. Plus, she can handle the criticism unlike.... Roman....

    I’m always gonna rally and champion around her at this point no matter how harsh internet critics slam her skills and say “she ruined the division with a reign of terror in 2017.”

    People can take a shit on WWE all they want but NXT really made a star for their parent company. Alexa is truly a home grown sensation with no prior wrestling skills to 2014 in NXT and this is how far she has come and people of all ages and gender adore her. There’s a lot of shade throwers and naysayers but they’re not shit.

    Speaking of awesome things, Monday’s Table for 3 is Alexa Bliss, Trish Stratus and Lita. Gonna be a fun watch.

    Anyway! Anyone hear about what happened with JR and Barnett at NJPW? Looked like a shoot. A ton of F-bombs. Some think it's a work and it's possible that it is. Haven't watched the show yet. JR sounded pissed. And, it seems like the commentary is bad like the last two times. Zero effort in trying to learn the product they're trying to call. As much as I respect JR, it might be time to call it. At least with NJPW.

    I seen the match from the other night. It was stated to have the same choreography. Alexa and Mickie look good in stripes.

    Better link for people:

    Talk about an unsafe move, huh? And he finished the match. Hopefully not too serious. After watching the Jay White part, I'm pretty convinced the stuff with JR and Barnett might be a shoot. They were legit pissed off. Started burying the company after that. How do you setup a guardrail like that. There was absolutely nothing holding it. No security?

    I saw that match with Jay White and Juice Robinson (amazing match) and I think White did do something that really did piss Barnett off. The way JR got hit was bad. I hope he's OK but man, I don't blame Barnett for getting angry. The match between Kenny and Cody was great. That ladder spot. I was like "OH MY FUCKING GOD!!!!!" It was great but what happened afterwards.... why Tongas? Why? Tama Tonga, Tonga Lao, and their father Haku basically beat the shit out of Omega, the Bucks, Cody, Hangman Page, Scurll, Chase Owens, and Yujiro Takahashi. So it's the Bullet Club vs. Firing Squad. I'm guessing that Hikuleo is part of the Firing Squad but where does Bad Luck Fale stand since he and Tama are the remaining co-founders of the Club left.

    Yeah, I'm curious about Fale. I can see him going with Tama though. Is he injured? Haven't seen him in awhile. Think he's in G1 though. Hopefully this helps Tama. I've always considered him overlooked. So crazy to see Haku being involved in anything like this in 2018.

    I think Haku is the ringleader of all of this. I think he saw what had been going on and told his sons to take control and get rid of these sub-versions of the group. I wonder what Karl Anderson and Prince Devitt thinks of all of this.

    Just watched the Hiromu match and as bad as the gif looked it looked even worse in the match. I really hope he'll be okay. He's one of my favorite New Japan wrestlers
