Um.. ok.. :-X

There have been rumors/reports for years and years about Orton exhibiting similar behavior, so not surprised. Guessing nothing will come of it though.

Recently re-signed up for the WWE network. Had cancelled my sub after Wrestlemania because I rarely watch anything on it except for the live PPVs and it's been awhile since I've thought they've done a PPV that any better than anything on raw or Smackdown. This time around I've been going back around and watching some of the old ECW and WCW TV shows and PPVs from 15 plus years ago and have been amazed at how well the video quality has been- they did a great job with their upconverting.

If you still cant get too excited about the PPVs, at least check out the NXT Takeovers. They're consistantly better than the main roster shows.

Tonight I watched the "All In" indie wrestling event that Cody Rhodes put together that took place in Chicago last week (watched both the preshow that was broadcast on WGN and the PPV main show). Highly recommend it if you're a wrestling fan. Great crowd, WWE caliber production (unlike most indie wrestling events) and far better production than ROH and TNA (or whatever TNA is calling themselves these days) and far better wrestling than any WWE event in years (somewhat ironic that the Cody Rhodes match was probably the worst match on the show).

Ok-tuning into Raw right after watching "All In", the lighting at "All In" wasn't as good as WWE and the audio quality lacked at times, but it was still better than just about any other video of any other indie event I've ever seen...

It surprised me that it had such a NXT vibe to it, but I loved every match.

SummerSlam will be in Boston next year. Trying to decide if we can splurge on tickets. Most likely not because of house hunting but 🤷🏻‍♂️

Been watching AEW Dynamite on Wednesday nights. Could use a bit more talking/introductions of characters, but defintely different then WWE. Too many WWE shows seem too similar to each other from week to week with repeats of the same feuds or fueds that all hit the same notes over and over again. AEW might become similar as time goes on, but have enjoyed the first 3 shows.

Watched the first AEW PPV tonight- from back in May before they had a TV deal. Wow. Some definite indy matches that were entertaining...big matches all great- especially the Cody vs Golddust match-buckets of blood. Despite being a PPV, did a better job with videos introducing characters then the TV show has done so far. Jim Ross still the best wrestling announcer that makes even indy matches seem like a big deal. WWE network has made me reluctant to ever pay PPV money again, but watching this is making consider dumping the WWE network until Wrestlemania and using that money for the AEW PPV next month.
