I don't know what happened with Lio, but man...they really could have run that back.


I think during a big bit of it, Lio was recovering from an injury, and they wanted to get him back in the ring.

He was! And I loved it! It reminded me of how Xavier was really early in New Day, when he just did nothing but roasted mfs every match. 

 

His (Lio's) voice isn't awful, but it's grating. You expect to be annoyed by him. And they leaned into it.

I also don't think Vince takes the smaller guys serious.

Most people know him from Cryme Tyme (which...btw...yikes), but he's well-known as a great guy and has kept in contact with most of the talent since his release. The video of him and MVP after Kofi's WM win was viral for a good minute.

 

What a shame, man.

Terrible news.    Sounds like the last thing he did was put his son first.  nothing speaks higher of a man's character than that.

I can not get the 10 year old son out of my head.  He is going to remember his Dad's last seconds painfully for the rest of his life, knowing the last thing his Dad did was to tell the guards to save him first.  Really rough.

That's really one of those "define you or destroy you" things, and I wouldn't blame him one bit if it destroyed him. I just can't imagine.

Yea, you are right.  Hopefully he remembers his Dad as someone that protected him to the last second.  I think it is a decision that most parents would make, but I am sure it will stay with the young man forever.

 

This wrestling thread just got real!

The WWE is using developmental squad people to create some atmosphere.

They were all tested and are staying at least 6 feet apart and they have plexi-glass separate them from the ramp and ring.

Evidently there is a Go Fund Me page to help the Gaspard family and someone plunked down 40 K.    It looks like it may have been John Cena.

Looks like the WWE may be trying to get the IC Belt back to the working man's championship.

Here’s a fun fact. Jim Crockett’s daughter was the baseball’s first female GM. She ran the Charlotte O’s for 12 years, during the time Charlotte was Baltimore’s AA affiliate, and when Cal was there.

This article is mainly about the scarcity of Ripken’s first ever baseball card, as many in the packs made for a promotion night were left in the stands, tossed, or lost in a fire that burned down Crockett Field.

Taking a page out of her dads book, 32 of the 72 home games would be some kind of promotional night.

I believe the Orioles offered her a job at some point years ago.  Never made the connection that she was related to Crockett.

The Io/Rhea/Charlotte match might end up a legit MOTY candidate. They work so well together. 

 

I hope Rhea is ok. Sounds like she is but that was naaaaaaaasty.
