I'm not gonna lie, the latest Abarenbou Kishi Matsutarou got me a bit choked up this week. They finally pull the trigger on the face turn that everyone, myself included, thought would be impossible given the inherit unlikeable nature of the main character. I think it works even without changing anything about him. It's still not much of a sports show and the animation's not great but I've enjoyed it as a comedy.

Other than that it's all just JoJo, Haikyuu, and Space Dandy. All really great in different ways. I try to keep up with Regular Show and Teen Titans GO!, those are still real funny.

I always thought people do it socially in order to find some....muddy buddies...

Message received and understood. The lesson is if a wrestler is desperate enough to work for TNA you probably shouldn't let them design their own mask.

Great Muta looks like he's having the same problem with his entrance cowl and his in ring mask looks awful in my opinion.

That's not a TNA thing, he designed that himself.

Well then that's just a funny coincidence. Not sure of the reputation of his tailor but the bulbous look of the mask looks uncomfortable in the ring. I guess it's suppose to convey some sort of oni vibe. Perhaps it's meant to double as a head pad to reduce concussions given his age?

Am I the only one who thinks TNA are producing some of the worst masks in pro wrestling? Jeff Hardy looks like he can barely see through the Willow mask. Great Muta looks like he's having the same problem with his entrance cowl and his in ring mask looks awful in my opinion. I don't have a high opinion on the Abyss mask either but I have zero reverence for that character. Please avoid obligatory references to the Psicosis mask and the weird indie league stuff.

I watched Impact last week. I need to stop doing that. Maybe I won't have to for very long if they don't get picked up by another network. Honestly the only characters that I was even remotely enjoying were the Bro Men and that's an embarrassing statement to make because they're still awful. Say what you want about the WWE writing but TNA is close to unwatchable. That company is just fortunate to have some decent workers in the ring and a handful of recognizable veterans.

@ajamafalous: @gorillamopena: Yeah I heard about that on the Powerbombcast, perhaps you've heard it? Damn dirt sheets, always finding a way to me even without seeking them out myself. I'm going to be disappointed if every belt is just changing back to looking generically gold. I feel like bronze is kind of the perfect color for that division given the lack of excitement as of late. I want to believe that the Dustbros could bring back the glimmer that the tag division has been sorely lacking. Then and only then could I accept those belts going back to gold.

Just give them all the damn belts now.

They need to find the Cosmic Key first! Hopefully the swerve won't be that it's actually in the shape of a belt.

Pretty sure the Cosmic Key are the belts and 'They' are The Usos

Well then I can't wait to hear about what universal secrets they unlock with the key. The problem is that if you give them the tag titles then you HAVE to make the belts gold again. And I was just getting use to the bronze finish.

This was one of those rare weeks where I thought Smackdown was more entertaining than Raw. The tag match wasn't great mostly because of how tired I'm getting of Uso matches and the ending was pretty weak. At this point just give the belts to anybody else, Rybaxel, the new Kof/E team up or better yet Dust 2 Dust who are killing with these vignettes.

I continue to appreciate the decision of making Johnny Cage the IC champ. Obviously it's not meant to last but I think using it to push Ziggler is still a good idea. Dragging Bo Dallas into it is icing on the cake.

The Ambrose/ Cesaro match was awesome though I almost wanted Cesaro to forgo using any weapons and just go hardcore with his raw wrestling moves. The only bad thing about it is that it's too early to be pitting their top 2 best performers against one another. The momentum of the feud is climaxing too soon and both of these guys are so great that they shouldn't need a push off of one another. It's also getting really annoying to see Cesaro's biggest weakness is the small package pin.

The direction of the Wyatt's is running out of steam but I'm confident these guys are talented enough to turn their luck around. Maybe one day Luke Harper could become the American badass and feud with Rusev for awhile. Roman Reigns doing good in the ring but I'm still not getting his character at all from any of his promos. They lost their shot and making him the new Undertaker. If they want to sell me on the one vs all angle they need to do something like have him win a Royal Rumble or compete in a lumberjack gauntlet match.
