    What do you call the hurricane rana—have not googled it.

    The even-flow DDT was very smooth

    Been awhile since I watched rasslin' a lot. Maybe there are some new finishers I haven't seen or don't remember.

    It’s all so generic now. No personalities. No good “scriptwriting.” Too much gaming.

    I suppose they would rather play as characters of the past than passively watch no-name-of-the-week wrestling live.

    El Santo back in action

    How about Vince McMahon retiring as a result of said sex scandal: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...e-mcmahon-retires-amid-misconduct-allegations

    He was a great tv character back in the day, but he was also an insane, racist, old prick (and probably a rapist) Surreal to see him go though. I doubt we'll see any immediate change but in time we could see a major overhaul to WWE creative...and I might actually want to watch more than a couple of shows per year.

    Brock Lesnar walked out of Smackdown because he only deals with Vince lol: https://www.f4wonline.com/news/wwe/...-smackdown-following-vince-mcmahon-retirement

    I guess they offered him a shitload of money to return, because he was on the show.

    I would have never expected Vince to leave like this even with everything that was going down.

    Just saw that Triple H has been named head of WWE Creative. I wonder if that might be a co-role with Paul Hayman. I don't really know how the backend of WWE works, but it would be nice to see better stories, especially with the news that Raw was going back to TV 14 eventually.

    Okay, Brock Lesnar destroying the ring with a tractor was fun.

    I saw a picture of him and he seems to be having a ton of fun. I think that's the first time I've seen a giddy smile from him.
