AEW could really benefit from any female wrestlers released by the WWE. That is AEW's main weakness. Riho, who was their first champion, looks like she's 90 lbs soaking wet and uses stomps of all things as a finisher. Nyla Rose, who is their current champion, reminds me of Nia Jax, and not in a good way. 

They do have several talented female wrestlers, but could benefit from an injection of more.

I just found out The Talkin Shop podcast came back a few weeks back ....
Gallows and Anderson are two of the funniest guys besides what they did for
Southpaw wrestling they never really had their personalities come out on WWE
TV.

They talk a little about being released but spent most of the last episode
talking about Howard Finkel passing. The Fink did a lot of the early episodes of
their podcast.

Recently read The Mighty LWF: The True Story of the Renegade Chicago
Wrestling Promotion by CM Venom (2014) dwells heavily into the promotion
that CM Punk started with.

The more I learn about Punk the more I see him as a liar. The book was written
with no agenda that I can see and basically so far under the radar that I hadn't
heard of it till it was mentioned off handed in a podcast. Punk has claimed for
years that his brother stole this money from the promotion he started. (See
the Best in the World documentary and is interview on WTF w Marc Maron
)....but his brother owned up to it before being found out. CM Venom and the
LWF was willing to forgive and but not forget. Punk disowned his brother over
it.   

Punk later would be kicked out of the LWF over his tactics (splitting the locker
room running his own agenda ) and his response was to empty the bank
account steal all of the equipment and start his own promotion. LWF got the
equipment back but because he was one of many signers on the bank account
he legally hadn't broken the law. Truth be told both Brooks brothers stole from
LWF one owned up to it the other split w the money.

The book also counters Punks claims of a abusive home-life and his father
being an alcoholic. CM Venom writes that he spent more time at Punk's house
than his own. Even without the Punk stuff ( really overall he is a minor minor
part) its an interesting book that is well written about a bunch of guys who
started as backyard guys who became a legit company and all of the problems,
betrayals and the whacky fun of it.

From a lot of accounts I've read about, Punk comes off as a legit asshole. And some of those accounts do go back that far. Though most I recall reading stem from his days in Ring of Honor.

Sad to hear about Kamala, definitely one of my favorite characters from the 80's.

Joe Laurinitis, aka Road Warrior Animal, passed awat at age 60. I got into wrestling because of The Road Warriors (in 1983 when they were unstoppable.) Sad that they're both gone.
