According to Cody and Brandi she was hired because they saw a video of her and thought she was amazing.... which is either bullshit as she clearly isn't amazing or Cody and Brandi have low standards for what 'amazing' is.

I think having her as champion is a great idea though. Now Kong is not there she is the monster of the division and it makes the most sense.
Plus, hopefully having her work with Shida will help improve her skills.

To be fair, the last match was the best she’s ever looked by a million miles. I fear for her defences though as the division is shite and there’s only so many times she can beat up Japanese girls before it gets boring.

Right people, right time, just the wrong location.

Fucking hell who’s arsed. Let people get excited about things.

For a TV Guide photoshoot promoting a new wrestling show, this is what you want to see. Not you brothers wedding reception, like those cunts above. You're selling professional wrestling. Nothing else.

Just realised I dropped a bollock and that he was referring to Dakota that was on RAW at the back end of the 90s. I thought he was referring to another child he’d had. But yeah, didn’t know that

Step-son/daughter - he's not been clear when using gender pronouns, so not sure how they identify. 

Saw a clip of Dustin recently talking about the Piper match, and getting the lingerie at a 'she-male store', and also referring to his step-son as 'a transgender', so a bunch of this is clearly him learning. And I'm finding that kind of lovely - it sounds like his heart is in the right place, which makes it easy to forgive some old-fashioned language.

She should be the easiest champion to book. Just have her Vader/Sid her way through scrubs and put her with the likes of Shida and Riho for the big defences.

Though I've just further highlighted how weak the division is I guess.

Fuck it, just fly Aja Kong in and have them beat lumps out of each other.

Very good episode this week. Highlights for me:

 - Dustin Rhodes. As (I think) @Supremo said, he's got me excited to see him vs. Swagger. And it took him about 30 seconds of mic time to do it. He's excellent. Good match with Sammy as well.

 - Jungle Boy. I love how much JR loves him. And for all his mistakes, JR is still 10,000,000% right to keep pushing the 'Jack Perry' name. Only a matter of time before JBJP is a megastar. 

- PAC. Speaking of megastars... he's just wonderful and brilliant and to have his athleticism but also that strength of character work... there are very few that could be considered better. Judge it on AEW and nobody should be putting Omega above PAC so far, so I hope he wins the Iron Man 5-0 in a replication of that Newcastle vs Man Utd match from 1996. Surreal and very cool to see the Quayside in the vignette as well. @Devon Malcolm much as I'd have loved to see the car park, they've since torn it down.

Second the love for Dustin. What a cracking voice. The change in tone from exasperation in "Not you" to pure venom in "Jericho's BITCH". Lovely stuff. I also love him selling the setup for his drop punch. Such simple crowd work, an in joke that's actually funny and realistic. Canadian destroyers can go in the bin though - a straight piledriver from 6'5" would look murderous.

If they're doing everything with Hangman on purpose, it's utter genius. So many little touches, from Omega seemingly avoiding the tag, Page needing a breath and making bad calls, to his isolation backstage, it's subtle where it needs to be and it'll be awesome when they pull the trigger on him. I'm already willing him to believe in himself again.

Omega has turned fully into another Good In Japan. He looks in poorer shape, puffy faced, lank haired and pink skinned, that I've convinced myself is due to switching diet from (stereotypically) cleaner Japanese to American. I'm also sure the NJPW camerawork hid a lot of his flaws, being focused more on close ups and tight angles, whereas the greater use of wide shots and hard cam work shows just how theatrically he keeps flopping around, pointing at nothing, and flailing around - it looks kind of dumb with so much stillness around him.

Jungle Boy is a star and I actually trust the company not to hotshot him. This singles run of near misses can't go on too long, so Luchasaurus needs to come back so they can associate Jack with winning again.

Main wasn't all my cup of tea. Mox's blind DDT made me chuckle in a Roberts-Martel blindfold match way. Closing beat down was awkward, especially with supposedly stoic Hager mugging to camera, and Cobb could've done with being in his civvies so he fit with the Inner Circle's look.

Also, Schiavone's voice. 9 stars.

This was my favourite part of the show. They’ve done a real turnaround with Page, and the first few months of wishy-washy bollocks with him ties into it. He’s got a proper redemption story set up now and it can go either way. Great stuff! But it just further makes me think they've screwed up with Omega. He can’t just do a non-alcoholic version of the same anxiety/comeback thing, so ultimately, Kenny being a failure for the first few months wasn’t necessary.

Perhaps they’ve just pivoted and thought Hangman needs the help more. Regardless, he’s coming off as a focal and highlight of the show now.
