@retris: Yeah, that's true about Death Triangle. I forgot they flipped a few times this year. As for the arrogance thing, quiet, solemn arrogance to me is cool, it's the boisterous, flamboyant arrogance that turns me off. And actually, Black did give Brock an out with the 10 count, and told him what would happen if he didn't comply. I guess grabbing a chair after the match is pretty dickish to be fair, though.
I won't use the dreaded T word but Malakai Black is one of the very few characters I've seen that is booked like a heel but comes off like a babyface. Like, everything he does is done with this badass nonchalant swagger. Also, dude has the best entrance in forever. Have him kill Miro in like 3-5 months for the belt, I'd say.
Incredible moment. Better than I expected. Such a great example of what makes pro wrestling different from other storytelling mediums. You get the real life human story directly integrated into the show instead of just adjacent to it.
Following CM Punk’s debut, the average secondary market ticket price for All Out is currently $993.00. Not a typo.
I can't stand fake retirement angles. Reminds me of Cena 2008-2014 where he was getting booed and Vince was trying to drum up sympathy for him by having him retire/get fired like 10 times. No one believes Cody's going to retire at 35.
