I hope Summer and Dolph still happens. They were practically made for each other. Great way to end that story though, but if it means less Fandango on TV I will be very sad.

Thanks to everyone for their opinions on AJ Lee, especially to @manhattan_project: for the videos he (or she or a third gender, like, I dunno... can Rhodesdust just be considered a gender at this point?) suggested.

After watching those matches and seeing her team up with Paige last night, I am on the pro-AJ train. The skipping and cutseyness is always going to bug me, but I am also a humongous Bayley fan, so I will own up to being a complete hypocrite. It would be great if AJ and Paige teamed up to take down everyone else, but I'll be cautious in my hope. Though, am I crazy or has their been a distinct split for the women in the last few shows? It seems like the recent RAWs and MitB both focused on the two aspects of the woman's division in the WWE proper seperately: wrestling (all things AJ or Paige related) and Diva wackiness (Summer Rae is mad at the other lady! Nikki Bella is mad that her clone was totally fired for really no good reason! Cameron is mad because she is a jerk!). I know that the annoying Diva stuff will probably never truly go away, but it would be great if they just all out separated that stuff from the actual wrestling. Heck, Naomi could do both! I actually like watching her wrestle and her Diva character of "I'm a Diva who kind of hates the fact I'm a Diva" is a welcomed change of pace from loud mouthed "women be crazy" stereotypes.

Anyway though, I need to repeat that I am a huge hypocrite on urging quality over fluff, since my ideal WWE spin-off would be a CBS police procedural where Dean Ambrose and Bayley team up to solve crimes in which ever town the WWE is currently performing at. Ironically, 80% of the crimes end up being committed by Dean Ambrose.

The other 20% also end up being committed by Dean Ambrose.

You're welcome and I can confirm that I am indeed a Rhodesdust.

I've been watching on-and-off for the past few months so I'm not sure, is it acceptable for Damien Sandow to be my favorite?

Edit: Also, can I like (the?) Miz? As far as I can tell, he's pretty much Johnny Cage.

Shithead Miz can be great, face Miz on the other hand is intolerable. And yes, Sandow is fantastic. He's doing miracles with the bullshit they give him.

Soooo I just heard about/saw three seconds of that Seth Rollins/Tyler Black fetish video.... um someone hold me and tell me it will be alright.

Also saw the Dean Ambrose one... that was not as bad, more hilarious than anything else.

Has any of this been posted here? Can it be posted here? Its all on Youtube, as far as I know no nudity.

Edit: How did I make it so far into my wrestling fandom obsession without knowing fetish wrestling existed?

Man that Ronda Rousey... swoon

BTW did anyone else laugh when Hall kept fighting (and kicking) after breaking his toe? Because I did. All I could think of was fucking Sin Cara breaking his finger and freaking out at the ref to stop the match.

@djm389: Here are some matches that actually let AJ show she can wrestle. You should keep in mind that the girls on NXT have spent upwards of a year training/practicing together everyday, thats not the case when you're on Raw and Smackdown (not that they aren't talented, but it helps a lot). Also the girls on NXT are actually given time unlike the girls on RAW/Smackdown who rarely get anything past 6-8 mins.

ANOTHER ONE - This time on Main Event.

This one is from early in AJ's (and Naomi's) career during the NXT reality show. Ignore Cole playing the perfect asshole.

And here's AJ's promo on the Total Divas cast in case you haven't seen it. Its great.

As someone who fell off of wrestling after the Attitude era and only got back in at Wrestlemania this year, can someone recommend a wrestling game? The last ones I played were the N64 games. My only familiarity with the newer games is from VGCW which does not exactly paint those games in a good light ("THQuality").

The new WWE might be pretty good? The last game showed some improvements and now the new studio is involved from the start of development. We'll probably see it around Summerslam next month.

So I heard everyone's favorite wrestler and motivational coach, Bo Dallas, was great on Smackdown yesterday. Doing some heelish things, like slamming El Torito to the ground, and cut a great promo calling Daniel Bryan "Little Daniel". I feel like I should start watching Smackdown.

Naw, you should start skimming through SmackDown. Half of it is still Raw recaps/bad segments.

Second match for AJ since returning is against fucking Eva Marie!? I want you guys to know that I hate what I'm about to say, but who that fuck did Eva sleep with to make it on TV? Seriously, not even the jobbers on NXT are anywhere near this terrible. And she's been this way for over a year!

@izunadrop: Powerbombcast requires a lot more time, and they need to get Giancarlo and Jared, so scheduling is an issue. Alex is probably busy with Giant BEAST as well.

I tweeted Ryckert about it and he said next week.
