And just to respond to some of the NXT stuff. It’s been significantly better than the main roster for years, now. NXT is better than I remember WWE ever being at any point in its history... The only time I recall it being close to as good would be around the year 2000. Mick Foley and Triple H kicked off the year with the best match in either’s career (well, too 3 for Foley, by far the best Triple H match, though) and it just seemed everything was during right on all cylinders. The Attitude era by and large was not as great as I remembered UNTIL about 2000, 2001 was the next best year, but 2000 really was something else.

NXT kind of brought that sort of excitement back, just without the gigantic crowds and mostly everyone knowing what’s going on (since like few people watch pro-wrestling anymore, let alone NXT)

Ouch, typos! Either I wrote this on my phone while on a bumpy ride, or I was drunk =P

Anyway, I just wanted to check in to say I'm pleased Keith Lee won, that guy is beyond Mike Awesome level.

That match was the only WWE match I've cared about in months. I have pretty much entirely migrated to AEW.

I was watching AEW when it first aired, but COVID and a lack of an actual crowd just really killed my enthusiasm to the point I haven't been watching anymore.

I'm not going to comment on the WWE quality. Because I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying the crap out of NXT and some stuff that was happening.

However, I have tuned out of WWE, and am not watching any of their programming (despite continuing to follow it) because WWE has been more unethical than usual in the last year or so.

I'm a bit fan of US politician Andrew Yang right now. He's a longtime WWE fan (for decades) and has been speaking out against them recently. Now he feels like he finally has power to do something about the problems he's seen with the company for decades. He's the US politician I relate to the most, being that he's close in age, he reminds me of a lot of my friends; of all the ones in the democratic primaries I'd want to have a drink with: Yang, Booker, Castro, Ojeda, and Williamson - it's not that I dislike the others, it's that I don't think I could have a conversation with them =P

Anyone watching Wrestle Kingdom?



Just a bit of trivia.

Asuka and Charlotte have both surpassed Trish Stratus in terms of championship reigns. Trish was women's champion for 828 days, Asuka now 861 including all belts outside of the tag championships, if you include tag championships, she's somewhere around 1050. Asuka's number is going up, maybe 2 days on every 1 because she's the current RAW Women's champion and Tag champion (with Charlotte).

Charlotte Flair is about 950 days including NXT, RAW, Smackdown, and her nearly 200 days as Divas champion. She's also the current tag champion with Asuka, but their reign is fairly new.

As a note: WWE counts Fabulous Moolah as #1 with something like 10,000+ days, but that is just storyline based on the fact that WWE bought the NWA women's title off of her and backdated her reign to 1956, ignoring the belt's history and the fact it wasn't even a WWE title. Fabulous Moolah's actual WWE title reigns amount to 328 days.
