Yeah that's what I figured he was gonna come back for a short fued then retire. I hope this doesn't happen. A) I don't want raw to win and 2) he just needs to go.
Looks like Emil really knows his A2#s.

Just in case that's not a thing done elsewhere, I should mention that US Southerners often like to "joke" by following an A with a 2 when listing things. It used to be done with a knowing nod. I think a lot of the kids who do it these days, though, just picked it up from older generations. For all I know, these kids think that's the way it's supposed to be done.

Those names are all replacement names. They're the German versions of names for some of the characters who frequent Duckburg/the Barksian Donald Duck universe.

Missed my Lucha Underground this week and had to go looking online for it.

Thought y'all might be interested in Pentagon Dark (I know, sounds like a candy bar) facing off against a succession of sexy, leather-clad, ninja ladies.

Adam, did you see that they're going to have a WWE UK Championship? They're bringing together a bunch of indy wrestlers from the UK to compete for it on the WWE Network.

It doesn't seem like something that will be defended on RAW or Smackdown, so I'm wondering what the point of it is.

In other news, the New Day passed Demolition's record as the longest-reigning tag team champs in WWE history. Personally, I hope they drop it at Roadblock. As much as I like them and their gimmick, they've become overexposed and are holding the entire RAW tag division back. Time for them to chase the titles for a change.

I initially wrote a really long post full of Cena quotes and peppered with Cena videos, but you never responded to it. Not sure why. It's still there, in fact.

I HAVE to imagine they drop soon now that they've got the record. You're quite right. Having them chase the titles from someone (Gallows and Anderson, probably? Enzo and Cass, maybe?) would freshen up what's become easily the worst of the shows. Also, is the Cass singles push beginning already? I'm not done with him and Enzo yet! Though Enzo would be an AWESOME cruiserweight addition.

The point of the UK Championship seems obvious to me. It's a gift to the stockholders from Vince & HHH.

Speaking of the Network, I'm quite intrigued by the idea of the women's tournament they're supposedly gonna run. That should be awesome.

At an Xmas party right now and one of our PMO lads is a massive fan and is stupidly excited about this UK thing.

Strangely he is now a massive fan of Adam too and says I should be nicer to him about wrestling.

YES! I'm a fan of his as well!! And yes you totally should be nicer to Adam about wrestling! The whole world should! Ask him if he thinks Nigel McGuinness will ever actually wrestle in WWE. Who do I need to look out for in this tournament?? I know very little about the UK Indie scene.

Can I bet on the shark? Actually, if it's a cage then all the water will run out and the shark will die. I change my mind. I bet on the man.

I met Bray Wyatt yesterday. Quite possibly the coolest dude on the planet and I want to be his best friend.
