I feel that between the last few weeks of Dynamite and Revolution, AEW is becoming what I was hoping for. I still don't get Orange Cassidy and I'm not into Dark Order, Best Friends, Jimmy Havok, and Marko Stunt. Other than that I feel they do a pretty good job. Not sold on their women's division when pretty much the bottom of the WWE/NXT women's division could probably come in and get over faster than anyone they have right now.

Wrestlemania is now going to be held at the Performance Center instead of a stadium.  That should be interesting.

He should just cancel it for the year. Its become common knowledge that all
venues have an act of god clause so he's insured for the loss on WM.

I can't even imagine the state of Florida will let him do it he will be past any
type of number for a gathering unless the restrictions are lifted. Add in the
travel nightmare of say getting Brock there who lives in Canada and Border
closings are coming so yea I think he's trying save face for now and will just
cancel completely in another week.

Word is they may do a big MSG show in June or July to make up for WM being in an empty building.

One thing I took from the Benoit documentary and a few other things I've seen and read over the years - Chris Jericho seems to be the best person in the wrestling business, always going out of his way to help people who need it.  I've looked at a few indiegogo campaigns for older wrestlers and, without fail, when I scanned the donors, Jericho was one of them.  Martha Hart in her book says he tried to give her money after Owen died and in the Benoit special, Nancy's sister goes out of her way to talk about how he reached out to connect.

I don't know if I should watch this. Benoit used to be my favorite wrestler, by far.
Has anyone seen this? Should I watch it? Or will I just get really depressed?

It was interesting yet a bit depressing. (And I believe Benoit was one of
the greatest in-ring performers ever.)

I'm very worried the Owen Hart episode will wreck me.

Read the results from Wrestlemania 36 night one, and the only match that I want to see is Undertaker vs. AJ Styles (and I have a source for that), thanks to the Goldberg vs. Strowman match being so `why even bother?' short.

Night two, there are only 3 matches I don't want to see: Liv Morgan vs. Natalya, Aleister Black vs. Lashley, and Otis vs. Dolph Ziggler.
