Did you ask how could he EVER drop those weights on "Bullet" Bob Armstrong in 1984? HE COULD HAVE INJURED HIM FOR LIFE.

That episode of The Toys That Made Us was really a surprise. I had no idea they were going to cover every company and federations. Glad I never collected wrestling toys because it would have bankrupted me.

I've never understood how WWE odds work.

As a fan, I'd like to see Joe win the Rumble and beat Lesnar at 'Mania but I doubt that will happen.

You are usually limited on how much you can bet to limit "insider trading." A few years ago, a lot of late betting would come in and it would always be on the eventual winners, so it appeared someone in WWE was leaking the winners.

Well The Bucks of Youth showed up at The Hardy Compound

I really wasn't interested in AEW but Revolution PPV kinda won me over and I
never thought I would say it Orange Cassidy is something to behold. Last night
Jake the Snake showed up on Dynamite makes me wonder if he's gonna
manage Brodie Lee.I still don't get the Young Bucks and I think Kenny Omega
should do some kind of reset on his character but AEW at least has me
interested in wrestling which I havent been since Daniel Bryan had has first big
run.

Yeah, AEW is a little more intriguing now.  I thought Jake cut a great promo and hope he's managing Luke Harper.

AEW's long term issue is they need to be able to build a real face of the company type babyface organically.  They have Adam Page, Darby Allin and Orange Cassidy pointing in the right direction, I hope they're able to really build them up.  

Really, Moxley doesn't do much for me, he just seems to try too hard to be weird.

The biggest mistakes AEW have had so far revolve around their women's championship. First they put in on Riho, a Japanese wrestler whose finisher (and most of her moveset, from what I've seen) involves stomps, and probably weighs 90 to 100 pounds soaking wet. Then she loses it to Nyla Rose, who reminds me of Nia Jax. And that's not a good thing. It should go to Britt Baker, a wrestling dentist (and unlike Isaac Yankem, its not a gimmick!), who is a damn good wrestler.

They've got a lot of talent, but their main title should end up on Kenny Omega at some point.
