    AEW - Meh
    EVOLVE - Good shit!
    Extreme Rules - Black/Cesaro, Ricochet/AJ, SD Tag Titles and Mixed Tag clusterfuck are all worth it.

    Fight for the Fallen was very good. I didn’t waste any time on Evolve. It’s not ever been my thing and the fact that it was a disingenuous move by WWE to give the indies the rub (fuck with AEW) just sealed the deal.

    There were some decent matches at Extreme Rules but if you had any doubt whatsoever that Senile Vince is still calling the shots, Master Blaster should’ve made it quite clear.

    WWE has left such a bad taste in my mouth recently that I find it very, very hard to watch these days. I had Extreme Rules on my laptop- on silent. I'd glance over every now and then and eventually fell asleep. I have been enjoying AEW so far. It of course needs a lot of work in some areas, but I've been pretty impressed.

    And yet somehow, some way, I'm going to drag myself to watch Raw tonight and Smackdown tomorrow. It's tough to break from something you've been watching since 1988....although I had a good 9/10 year break starting around 2004.

    Unfortunately....it felt like classic Bray Wyatt with new clothing. I know you can't judge without ringwork and on air promos but Firefly Funhouse seemed irrelevant after watching that return.

    I'm the same, it's dreadful to watch but I just can't give up. I'm an addict. Just like being a Marilyn Manson fan in 2019.

    I was able to walk away from Manson. This one isn't so easy. Been in since 93... Doesn't help that I keep getting lured in by all the staff changes. And every time, I'm just as disappointed as before.

    I'm a Finn Balor stan and love the Demon King, but with the news of his two months off post-Summerslam after, presumably, a match with Bray Wyatt, this would be the perfect time to accomplish a few things -

    1. To make Wyatt finally realize the potential that WWE has squandered in the past, the Fiend needs to beat the Demon King at Summerslam. This would explain a two month absence and would also establish Wyatt as a credible threat to EVERYONE. He's had high profile matches with Cena, Undertaker and Randy Orton at Wrestlemanias past, and he's lost all three. A win against the undefeated (in WWE, not counting NXT) Demon King would reestablish him in a new way.

    2. The loss against Wyatt not only explains his absence, but upon his return, Finn Balor turns heel. Whether that's with joining the Club, forming a new stable, or just going out there on his own and being the Prince Devitt of old, he needs this to happen because babyface Finn has gotten stale from a storytelling perspective. This could have an adverse effect and make him into a Becky Lynch-style babyface, but give him a villainous run for a bit and let him loose on the good guys.

    I feel like Wyatt has been buried ever since that last man standing match with Cena.

    I mean, why did he even loose that WM to taker? Taker should have been the one putting HIM over.

    Agreed. That's why I'm hoping they're using this to correct those wrongs of the past.

    Wyatt was always a victim to circumstance. Not going over on Taker or Cena hurt him. It's always the booking. Cool if you want him to job. They had no plan after though. They have him a two week reign only to give it to orton in THAT match. Just bad decisions all around for him. They killed him.

    They have a second chance now. I'm worried they're going to screw it up again. He's over. Shouldn't be too hard. They always find a way to convolute and run something into the ground. Hopefully wrong.

    You assholes made me wait for this for a long time.





    The parting words make me think (hope) she's not being shelved again and will continue to be on air.

    I've decided that my break from watching WWE will extend until Sami Zayn gets a clean win. It may be a long time.

    Charlotte vs Trish doesn’t really move the needle for me.

    Is anyone else keeping tabs on Moxley in New Japan? He's their US champion and so far is undefeated in the G1 tournament. He also has some pretty great post-match interviews.

    Dean was always my favorite in WWE, and now that he's on his own and able to show off what he can really do, I feel vindicated in holding that opinion.

    I havent watched much of the WWE lately, but the match sounds random as fuck...

    Other than Balor/Wyatt im not seeing anything interesting on the Summerslam card.

    Listened to MJF on Talk Is Jericho sold me 150% on this guy. No interest in AEW changed to me tuning in actively for him now when it airs.

    So much attitude, perfect promo work and a great character. His approach is so character based that the wrestling skills come secondary. Going to be great.

    If you haven't seen this one yet, it's GOLD.


    Side note - super stoked that CVV is going to be an on-air/back stage interviewer for AEW. Such a good interviewer.

    I am shocked that Space Suicide has been quiet since Monday night in this thread.

    Prediction time! It's been too long.

    WWE Summerslam:

    Drew Gulak vs Oney Lorcan - I think Gulak holds onto this one but I legit think these two are gonna shoot on each other and I am here for it. Should be a good one.

    Trish vs Charlotte - So maybe this is Trish's retirement match and so Charlotte is gonna pick up the win. I think this match could firmly cement Charlotte's direction going forward because she's been a little lost lately.

    Goldberg vs Dolph - I mean, yeah, Goldberg is gonna win this one. Anything to wash the taste of Super ShowDown out of everyone's mouths. Please don't hit your head on the locker room door on the way out to the ring, Bill.

    Finn vs Bray - I'll do a short version of what I said earlier, but this should be a win for Bray and I kind of hope he beats Finn with Finn as the Demon just to really hammer it home how dangerous the Fiend is. That might just be me.

    KO vs Shane - I fully expect Owens to put on a grade-A ass whoopin' on Shane to send him off TV for a while.

    AJ Styles vs Ricochet - I like Ricochet for this one because I think our other big matches might not have pleasant outcomes, but he and AJ will likely put on the match of the night.

    Bayley vs Ember Moon - This one has really not had much hype, has it. I'd like Ember to win it, but I think Bayley holds on for the win.

    Becky vs Natalya - Ronda Rousey returns and costs Becky the title. That's my crazy prediction of the night. I doubt it will happen. Becky retains.

    Kofi vs Randy - I think Kofi pulls this one out but it's gonna be a brutal match to watch.

    Brock vs Seth - Brock destroys Seth and beats him within an inch of his life.
