Random wrestling thoughts

Money.  They sure like that TV money.

Also, it has been rumored for months that WWE is trying to get a 3rd hour for Smackdown.  However given the structure of FOX, it would have to go onto FS1, which is stupid.

The NWA show was super old school, and I really liked it. The AEW one had its moments, but felt kind of flat by the end.

 

The end of AEW Dark was around the 3.5-4 hour mark for the live crowd.  It was noticeable.

Did my normal Monday listen to wrestling podcasts, specifically the ones post last weeks NXT.  And I was surprised to hear so much conversation about Tomasso Ciampa beating up a pair of pants.  Or rather pants that happen to be the same color as the Mexican flag.  And thus controversy.  Apparently.  Not once did that enter into my mind watching the episode.  I don't get it.

That surprised me too, but then I heard there's some racial tension in Full Sail Arena. The crowds, apparently, have been known to start racist chants. So when Ciampa attacked Angel Garza's Mexican flag-themed pants, it had a certain look to people who were aware of the racist crap at Full Sail.

In a totally foreseen problem, travel issues have arisen and most everybody is stuck in Saudi Arabia.  And the backup plan of sending 12 wrestlers back separately has also not gone well.  So now for Smackdown, which starts in about 3.5 hours as I type this, has Daniel Bryan, The Miz, Sami Zayn and the entire women's roster.

 

Much like the snowstorm RAW or the volcano RAW, it will be interesting how/what they do.

The final segment on Raw was amazing, sold ever so perfectly by Randy's range of emotions and the screaming in the crowd. After the emotional high of Edge's Rumble return, this was as equal a low. So good.

Next week I'm hoping Randy's explanation / motivation is that he had to destroy Edge for his own good. Though it might not have been on his own terms, Edge got out nine years ago. He's had a decade of quality time with his family. Why throw that away? Why come back? If done right, Randy could ride the "I did it for your own good" train.

I liked it a lot. My only complaint is that Edge returning to feud with Randy seems like a waste when theres so many guys that Edge has never wrestled on the roster. Feels like a bone thrown to Randy to give him a Mania match.

I really hope not.  The last thing I want to see is Edge in a ladder match.  It is just not worth it.

 

I mean, he has cashed in twice and only won the match once.  There are ways around things if you want to go that route.

 

Kinda disappointed they are going the Randy route.  But, they'll have a nice, slow, safe, boring Randy Orton 2.75 star match.  I really don't need much more from Edge.

Seconded.

I'm fine with a match with Orton at WM as that writes itself. Afterwards, Edge can get into other feuds without the need for MITB. Personally I want to see Edge/Bryan, even if Bryan's only recently turned face and they'd be boneheaded to turn Edge heel anytime soon. More realistically, I'm thinking Edge/Rollins, given the Authority angle with Rollins threatening to curb stomp him into paralysis when retired.

I'm at my first local fed show (North Wrestling) which involves Cultaholic's Tom Campbell as ring announcer/commentator and Botchamania's Maffew as co-commentator. Bought an early ticket, so I've just seen Tom host a warm-up quiz before the show starts in 10 minutes.
