Candice Michelle was on a fucking table for 3. It was the oddest thing ever like she did something to be featured on there. I've heard some rumblings about why she got her push. She played the game.

It looks good to keep him.

Especially if you're trying to court other Japanese wrestlers.

Also helps that they want to have all the wrestlers locked up if they can, unless they are trash like Ryback and Sandow.

Given how much TNA has used WWE people with their WWE gimmicks over the years that would be hilarious.

I mean they might own the copyright or something I guess but I dont think that would stop him using that gimmick but slightly different

She was gonna be in Playboy and had a gig with Go Daddy. It makes sense. Kelly Kelly and Eve got bigger pushes and didn't have those things going on. Kelly ran the ropes as bad as AJ did.

Cesaro would never sell supplements or a book. Or do a podcast!

Ryback's post-wrestling career is already 7 decades ahead of his.

But he was entertaining and had charisma. Cesaro can't even claim that.

Again, this is in the WWE. I'm sure he was able to do a ton more in the indies, which is why it'd be better for everyone if he went back.

I mean he had a MOTY candidate worthy match last year, is consistently over and good for some good in ring entertainment pretty much every week.

Knowing him, it'll be too late or he'll retire when he's done in the company. AND he won't have anything to fall back on!

Maybe on the March 7th show? It's a big enough show that they're doing the English commentary for it. Could easily be the main event for that one.

Side note I find it kinda sad that TNA (a company that she never worked for) acknowledged Nicole Bass' death but WWE couldn't be bothered (bad blood or not). Like I don't really blame the WWE either but it's just sad yeah.

Man I hope they don't burn out Korakuen, they've had a LOT of shows there recently. Definitely Not Kota Ibushi vs Okada should be incredible though.

Someone suggested they should run Kenny vs Ospreay as a counterpoint to Okada/Ibushi and because they have crazy chemistry.

Yup, that's how it goes down. Naito is in the NJ Cup tourny, which is the next big show, so he won't be able to defend it.

Listening to Steve Austin break down the psychology, kinesiology, physics and thermodynamics of the Stunner to Kevin Owens.

I want the alternative future where Steve Austin is head of WWE creative.

EDIT: Oh my god when Austin starts describing Rock using all his wrestling achievements and KO points out that Roman has pretty much achieved all the same thing in kayfabe, yiiikeeeesss

EDIT2: This weirdo kayfabe they are using is amazing, comparing Reigns to the Rock and why the Stunner seems to be less effective on them. Is it the college football? The Samoan-ness? The wrestling pedigree?
