They also look to have a working relationship with AEW if last night's Dynamite was any indication.

I remember him tag teaming with Ron Simmons as (Doom) and with Woman (Benoit’s wife) as their manager.

I ordered Hardcore Holly's memoir off Amazon. Quite a few people have said it's one of the absolute best wrestling memoirs out there. Has anyone else read it?

No but Holly is a nut job so I’m sure it’ll be entertaining at least.

After what happened with Sonya Deville, they better treat it as real.

Yeah in my uneducated opinion this guy is a sadistic troll, but they have to treat it as real.

Simon Miller has been tracking the number of DQ and Distraction finishes in WWE this year (Raw/Smackdown/PPV). We are halfway through February and they are already up to 26 distractions and iirc 13 dqs.

Last year he tracked the "the most devastating move in all of Sports Entertainment, the surprise roll-up" starting in March and hit 100 before the end of the year, at which point he retired the counter.

It’s that time once again to enjoy one of the best matches of the 2010s. I bring you, once again, Punk vs Cena on Raw. Feb. 25, 2013

Ah yes, that time when CM Punk was screwed out of yet another Wrestlemania main event. I've been going through the Manias and I just started 30 last night. I'm so thankful to finally be out of the CenaWinsLOL era.

I'd love to see those numbers vs the early days of RAW or even 10 years ago when you could compare it to a similar RAW/Smackdown/PPV schedule.

I turned on RAW very briefly Monday, just long enough to see Naitch's music hit during a match. That was enough for me and I didn't watch the rest of the night. And I still don't understand why they queue up music for an "unexpected appearance" or a run-in during a match.

Good call. It would be interesting to see if this has really gotten worse or if it has always been this way and people just looked past it because 3 seconds later Stone Cold or The Rock was doing something completely awesome.

They are going with an ancient Rick Flair is banging Lacey Evans angle in kayfabe and she is pregnant (I believe this is true, but obviously not Flair's kid). :face:

Early days of Raw numbers would be skewed due to the amount of jobber squash matches.
