'White person with dreads' just kills any appeal he could have. But I definitely feel like he's about at his peak of where you could credibly out him. Hope he jobs for Moxley and heads down the card or into a tag team. That or into a hair match that he can lose.


Well, who knows, in 2013 I though Naito was beyond saving too. But it'll take a major character change like that, along with some great matches. The gritty NEVER title series against Ishii really put Naito back on the map after the disastrous title challenge as happy go lucky babyface.

That said, Shingo feels like a viable #2 in a new stable or a reconstituted LIJ, not as a #1, at least quite yet.

Moxley also has a 2 1/2 hour follow up pod with Wade Keller, the first part of which is up now...

Rumor is WWE reached out to GSP about coming in and he was down for an appearance. SummerSlam is in Canada, and I think would make sense. What would you do with him, assuming he'd only be interested in special ref or in someone's corner of whatever?

My pie in the sky would be Becky with Conor vs ??? with GSP

Reminder Takeover is tonight. So glad they've started running these on Saturdays. Haven't kept up with the build, but the card looks great, as always. Hope Breeze turns in a great performance in his match. I think Io/Bassler could be one of the better Takeover women's matches we've seen. Looking forward to that. Also, if they're running Gargano/Cole again it kinda makes me think Cole wins it this time, but do they really want Gargano having a short reign after the super long chase? Probably not.

First two matches were pretty great. The ladder match was brutal. Had to run somewhere so I'm a little behind and super excited for this Dream/Breeze match.

Cole and Gargano tied at 2 falls, through 2 matches

I think an Iron Man (60 minutes not 30) for the SummerSlam weekend NXT would make a ton of sense

Adam Cole feels like the type of talent that even Vince McMahon couldn't fuck up once he hits the main roster. Everything about him just screams star.

After Sami Zayn, Bayley and Ricochet, I have no faith in handling NXT slam dunks. I guess Cole is more his speed, by a bit, but still...

jfc, Wade Keller's pt2 of his Moxley interview has 6 and a half minutes of utterly annoying pre-roll ads before it even introduces the interview

Moxley/Juice was match of the night, maybe match of the tour?

Ospreay/Shingo was very good but not one of my top 5 matches of the tournament. Might have just been being a little burned out on the NJPW Juniors style after a long tournament but it felt kind of patterned.

My matches of the tournament were: Ospreay/Romero, SHO/Dragon Lee, Shingo/SHO, Ospreay/ELP, Scrull/Takagi

Moxley in the G1 would be rad af because I want to see him vs. Suzuki, Ishii and Okada and that seems like a plausible block.

Honestly, without there being much in the way of AEW this summer and with them struggling to sell tickets in Dallas, it'd be cool to get 2/3 of Omega, Jericho and Moxley in the G1.

Also, the Dominion show should be great:

Okada vs Jericho for the IWGP
Naito vs Ibushi for the IC
OspreayToggle Spoiler vs Dragon Lee for the Junior HW
Ishii vs Taichi for the NEVER (admittedly, this isn't the best)

And it seems like the teases were:

Liger vs Suzuki
Ropungi 3K vs El-P & Ishimori for the Junior tag
Yoshi-Hashi vs ZSJ
Villain Enterprises debut new member

Plus:
Stuff with White, Tanahashi and Moxley
