Just for those interested in additional wrestling content.

Storytime with Dutch Mantel is another great one. I'd say Dutch is probably around as intelligent and knowledgeable as Cornette, but doesn't have the volume turned up to 10 for every opinion. So Dutch, Jim Cornette, Cafe Rene (Rene Dupree, and often Paul London), and Eric Bischoff are probably the ones I recommend. I've fallen off listening to Vince Russo as much, and I probably wouldn’t recommend him, as he changes his opinions, drastically, depending on which side of the borderline he's on (I'm 90% sure he has borderline personality disorder). Russo can go from being interested in a lot of minute details of the wrestling industry and discussing it with people one day; but, the next day calling all wrestling fans a bunch of idiot marks, and that he hates everything about the wrestling industry and its fans. Russo is profoundly cynical, and a massive drama Queen half the time… you just don’t know which Russo you’re getting when tuning in.

Dutch is a smart guy. But to me, listenting to a version of Cornette without the foaming at the mouth is like eating pizza without the cheese.

Tama Tonga needs a new finisher.

Too bad he cant use his Indies finisher (which is basically the RKO lol)

It's a weird looking version of the flatliner. Typically the person delivering the flatliner stays standing. Tonga jumps up, almost like a codebreaker kind of thing. Which probably actually would hurt more, but looks awkward. Maybe it'll just take some getting use to. Or maybe he'll have to murder Orton so he can use the RKO.

Huh. cody vs AJ Styles got 5 stars from Meltzer. I mean, it was good but 5 Stars? I dunno, seems highly sus.

Meltzer's ratings have been sus for a while. But, this is at least relatively consistent for him. Match lasted about 30 minutes, they made subtle references to other matches they've been in, used obscure moves that are popular in Japan, did a few flips, and Cody even no-sold a finishing move. Pretty much up Meltzer's alley. Probably one of his less egregious ratings.
