Definitely didn't see Lesnar winning.... but I echo your comments, John.

Really wish Taker would retire already. Rousey performed better than I expected... looking forward to where she goes from here.

For those that miss NXT Takeover... catch it. FANTASTIC card from beginning to end. (Gargano vs. Ciampa... WOW!)

-C!

Meltzer told an interesting story about Asuka - basically when it was for sure that they were getting Rousey the agents told Asuka to use the armbar as much as possible, in every match. Then, a couple weeks ago, they told her to stop using it all together. So I guess that hints as to what the plan was for her vs. what it is.

I'm not sure what Rousey's schedule is (if she's full-time or not) but it seems like having her work with someone like Natalya on the road for a couple months would help her get better, before putting her in a big match at SummerSlam against Charlotte or Asuka.

Regarding Nia Jax, I've heard that she was brought up from NXT too early, that she works clumsy and its surprising she hasn't hurt someone yet.

If anyone needs to turn heel besides Roode, it's Reigns. The crowd is going to crap over him no matter what because he's being forced down the fans' throats, and a heel turn did work for Rocky... I mean The Rock.

But Reigns doesn't have the mic skills or charisma of The Rock, so I'm not sure what would really help get him over. If he hadn't injured Sting, I'd say Rollins deserves the push that Reigns is getting.

Glenn Jacobs is running for Knox County mayor here, and the election is May 1st. (And no, I'm not voting for him) So that battle royale could have been Kane's last PPV match.

Funny thing is, I've seen campaign signs all over the place, and there's someone whose last name actually is Kane running for county clerk. Their sign doesn't have their first name on it, so to wrestling fans, it looks like Jacobs might be running for two different jobs.

Sammartino is, of course, the foundation of the entire WWE/WWWF/WWF. Without him, who knows what wrestling in the US would look like today. A sad loss for sure.

Paul Jones was a huge deal in Mid Atlantic wrestling and was a frequent partner and adversary of my favorite wrestler The Masked Superstar. In that territory, he was a huge name and a main eventer for a long time.

Who knew that, circa early 1992, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage had taken on the Berzerker and Jake Roberts?


That Piper/Savage/Hacksaw VS Jake/Flair/Undertaker bout sounds intriguing!
