    Saw a comment on the intertubes that Butcher and Blade's entrance theme is really good after the bit you actually hear on TV, so went and checked it out and damn it's metal as fuck after the first two minutes.

    So I just got Royal Rumble 2020 on DVD from eBay and I must admit it's sorta depressing to see how the Pro Wrestling climate has changed due to the Pandemic. (Not trying discuss C19) But Yea with a live Crowd it's just so much more entertaining to watch vs what we have going on nowdays @ the Performance center or @ the Jacksonville Jaguars stadium.

    I dunno, it was kind of nice not to hear the asinine chants from a "Raw after Wrestlemania" crowd.

    Had to post this. Asuka is such a dork IRL, but hilarious. The irony is these products are apparently supposed to help your body, but they seem to do more harm than good.

    Impact Wrestling has the TNA Heavyweight title being defended on its show...AEW has the FTW title being defended on its show.

    Shoot WWE should have the European title brought back to go against the NXT UK title lol.

    Won't spoil in case anyone is waiting for English commentary, but holy shit NJPW this weekend.

    Going to be an interesting few months ahead.

    This exactly. I’m still shocked that Rey even chose such a stimulation.

    Were you horrified by the big red x they put over Beefcake's forehead?

    Because New Japan is usually so conservative with its booking when they do do a big swerve it's an instant 'holy shit'.

    I wouldn't have predicted what happened over the weekend at all, but when you think about what's gone on before, certain results, stuff going back years, it all makes sense. And that's why Gedo's such a fantastic booker.

    In contrast to WWE over the past month or so where Gulak has a win over AJ and Black has a win over Seth - and it means absolutely nothing.

    I'm certainly not complaining like allot of people on the internet are, this opens up allot of different possibilities and the relative rarity of big shifts in the status quo make it so much better when they do happen.

    More than anything I think the reaction is due to the current circumstances, if it had happened at the same time with a full 6 months of shows behind it then people wouldn't be loosing their shit as much. I have no doubt that it was the plan all along and Gedo is just going ahead with it rather then pushing it back as is obviously the case with the big AEW angles right now.

    It'll be the same fans complaining who were furious after Wrestle Kingdom 12. Joined by those who argued Okada and Jay White weren't ready. Gedo should have earned their trust by now and as you point out it opens up fresh possibilities at a time the roster is limited in size due to the pandemic.

    I do understand fans being disappointed about
    Naito's title reigns being short, but we don't know the behind the scenes stuff with his injuries. He's given interviews this year about the state of his knees and how he's contemplated retirement, it must take tremendous mental bravery for him to just set foot in a ring, so perhaps it was best all round to shift the belts.

    The stuff about

    him working with double vision was legit scary, I was actually a bit relived at the start of lockdown that he and a few other guys were getting some time off.

    Having said all that, we know that the real travesty of the weekend was that

    Miho didn't get to witness the Holy Emperor ascend to Tag Championship glory in person.

    So they're going to make Seth wear an eyepatch and be a pirate for a few weeks/months to fill the void of Kairi leaving?
