The funny thing about the Tessa stuff is that she tweeted about togetherness and helping everyone out which opened the floodgates of female talent saying "Yea, about that shes actually a racist B.".

As far as her winning impact Title, what do they have to lose? When Callahan is your champ you don't have much of a future. Tessa had been getting some good press and they felt why not get some more what can it hurt.
I don't know how they booked the match and lead up. And I don't know any other impact guys to challenge. Do they still have the Knockouts title? After this should they?

I don't know if she is any good, but if she is as good as everyone says she is for WWE not have even offered (which it sounds like they didn't) leads me to believe there are some personal issues involved.

Taya Valkrie is the Impact champ.

Taya Valkrie is the Impact champ.
So they still have it. Did Taya beat Tessa to win the belt and then started this intergender thing? So Taya has a legit claim at a title shot for the impact title.

I don't know the male talent impact has, but I'm assuming they have to have athletic dudes that can have good wrestling matches. Tessa and Taya for as good as they are (or any female) just don't have the athleticism to look right competing against guys.
I think I have made my disdain for Finn well known here and every female wrestler is like a less talented version of him. Women matches on their own can be great. They can tell a good story and be fun to watch, but how in the world am I to believe a 5 foot 5 130lb lb person (male or female) can win an organizations heavyweight title? Just don't work for me.

I thought buddy Murphy was fitting to get buried in obscurity after dropping three clean vs Alestair. Him joining Seth and AOP was a great way to keep him in the mix, Buddy is too good right not to get match time.

This whole heel Seth thing took a huge positive turn with the Buddy Murphy heel turn, it was done really well :D

Chris Benoit's son David Benoit is planning to get into Wrestling, here's an interview about Chris and that David idolises him so much. I feel so sorry for David, going through that.

Just saw Tessa hit two Canadian Destroyers and a DDT to win the title. Taya is the AAA & Impact womens' champ. Tessa makes a great heel.

Who doesn't do Canadian destroyers now. Scarlett his one on MCW TV champ when I was at that show and you can see how easy it is. The person getting hit with the move is the one that does all the work which makes it perfect in intergender matches for the woman to do to the man. Its impressive looking and easy to pull off. but like the super kick used way too much.

RIP Rocky "Soulman" Johnson 1944-2020, I vaguely remember Rocky making the save for his son at wrestlemania 13 in 1997 when his son the Rock was wrestling Rikishi dressed as the "Sultan" with Bob Backland and Iron Sheik managing him.

Rocky's tag teammate, Tony Atlas had the biggest guns (arms) in wrestling along with Scott Steiner.

So those 24" Pythons are NOT the biggest guns in Wrasslin'?

Scarlett Bordeaux is the TV champ?
About this time last year she won it on a Friday when I went to an MCW (Maryland Championship Wrestling) event at the MCW Arena (Old KMart now Amish Flea Market in Joppatown) lost it back to the guy the next night at some fire company.

In person she looks OK. Her body physically is appealing to look at (the face though is weird). In the ring she didn't come off as athletic, but she was wrestling a pretty ripped cruiser weight looking dude. So compared to other females maybe she wouldn't have looked so out of place. She wasn't terrible at it, but not a natural either. I would say she is as good as Becky as an in ring performer (which isn't saying much), capable of having good matches if the right person is booked opposite to carry the match.

If they do it in Australia it would work. But yea beach in US in Janurary is dumb.

Also I vaguely remember a WCW guy in the late 90s named Ice House or Ice Train. He was black dude with the bigger arms than any of them. I think he was managed by Teddy Long like what seemed like every black wrestler at one point or another.
Ice Train sounds right. Ice House is a beer and they probably wouldn't have named him after a beer.

Ice Train, baby. haha Yeah, I can remember him. He teamed with Scott Norton a bit before Scott turned on him and joined NWO/ Vicious and Delicious. Just gotta say that Vicious and Delicious is a great name.

I never had a vested interest in the Bucks of Milwaukee but I can get behind the pregame ritual they do before everygame. I don't know what is funnier, the fact that these guys are WWE wrestling before everygame or that Lopez is the perennial jobber.

I never laughed so hard at a podcast in ages. Jim Cornette and his colleague were talking about Tessa Blanchard. Then it got weird, they started talking about things wrestlers will do for their fans. Then they played some recording of this woman talking about taking a big dirty diarrhoea dump on the wrestling fan. Fetish for ya. hahaha Awww man.

Pretty lackluster RAW, new tag champs through which was cool.

Buddy Murphy loses 3 straight to Alestair turns heel and get s an important spot. Alestair is back to kicking jobbers into oblivion. I don't think they ever used a losing streak to push the loser and have the winner go back to beating tomato cans. Alestair is better than crushing jobbers (but at least he is on TV) and Buddy is higher on the ladder than ever before. Which also gives credence to Rollins' movement. What a great angle this is everyone fits in these spots perfectly. AOP are perfect enforcer types just look big and mean and don't talk, Rollins is great at being whiny and hiding behind the muscle, and they way they incoprprated Buddy is perfect. KO and Joe are perfect to pair with them, great mic guys who have always seen through the typical BS anyway. I think them with Vikings was a one off so they challenge is to find a pair of guys (or one superstar) to negate the AOP numbers advantage.

Brock kicked Richochet in the crotch and yelled that he aint scared. That made little sense. Maybe Brock really likes Richochet and Ricochet will dump him outta the rumble and set up a Fastlane match (do they still have Fastlane). I cant imagine Richochet winning the rumble and main eventing mania. Or maybe Fiend will get ME spot and Brock will open? I don't think we will get womens main event this year unless Ronda comes back and they do another triple threat with Flair.

You going?

If he keeps doing them I might eventually. Its just something I don't want to pull the trigger on solo, but I have no friends that would be interested in anything like that. SO what can I do?

Maybe I can hire an escort for the weekend and itll be a bonus if she is into wrestling and stuff :)
Nah, I'm still at home. :p

My mate would have been interested in something like this. He is a traveller. Married and all that good stuff now. If only the cruise was 5 years ago.
