Most of the main roster guys are former NXT guys.

Of course. I’m just saying at this particular time, almost all of the top guys are all tiny. Cole and the UE, Gargano, Ciampa, Dunne. Dream is pretty averaged sized but looks big compared to them. Same with Riddle. Once these guys get called up the roster gets a little beefier.

I’m not a Vince type where size is the number one factor but it can make a biggish deal is almost everyone you match up with is bigger than you. I will say, even though they’re smaller the NXT guys have a huge advantage over most of AEW in aesthetic. At least most of the NXT guys look like athletes. So much of AEW look like backyard wrestlers so it’s hard for me to get into it much.

Yes, everyone should watch this.

I learned so much about his psychology at the beginning of his career. Fascinating to hear how much he struggled with slowing his work down and not focusing on having the best match of the card when he knew he could do so much more athletically. It would be interesting to go back and watch some of those early matches with the knowledge that the guy playing the character was so conflicted about his own motivations versus the character's. It's not surprising that he lived the gimmick for half a decade. It sounds like he had no choice.

I loved the story about Buzz Sawyer's rottweilers. :lol:

Seen a pretty cool theory about who The Fiend has fueded with. Everyone he's had a match with has changed from heel to face or face to heel. Finn turned heel after facing The Fiend. Seth is turning heel after facing The Fiend. Bryan is turning face after facing The Fiend.

In the matches, Bray listened to the "hurt" glove when he fought Finn and Seth. Bray listened to the "heal" glove when he fought Bryan.

Then you can't say you miss her then if you don't want to seek out her stuff which is EXTREMELY easy to access. ;)

I've watched a ton of her stuff. Fantastic wrestler. But she would probably struggle in a true week to week WWE environment where she has to do other things than just work and have to neuter her stuff to preserve her body (and her peers) because of the brutal WWE schedule. She was used perfectly in the MYC, and imo it is probably best if it stayed that way.

Sendai Girls will most likely end up on the network i'm guessing if there is no NXT Japan (if there is, then rip Sendai Girls, cause Big Japan + Sendai Girls forms the base of that).

I love that -- finally, some good booking!

This would be neat if it was true and we could see the evidence of it. Imagine if he used the different gloves to apply the mandible claw, resulting in the events speculated above. It's certainly cool to think about - but what is the point, and what does it say about The Fiend's motivations?

Apparently they're looking at Brock vs Cain 2 or vs Fury at Wrestlemania...
