The storytelling as always left a fair bit to be desired, but I thought it was a very entertaining show start to finish. Nothing absolutely incredible, but the majority of the matches were at least good.

WWE had a heel black wrestler arrested for bumping into a cop accidentally to attempted loud cheering, if you want to know where they're at now.

All during an angle where the black wrestler is cucking the face wrestler.

I donít know how anyone watches Raw anymore.

Taker's funny story about wrestling Bruiser Brody when he was starting out.

And this is the match.

If watching AEW every Wednesday night had taught me anything about the wrestlers is that Kenny Omega is not a top star. He's like the 10th top star on that show. I'm starting to think he was just the best western guy in NJPW. Don't get me wrong he's great in the ring but, he's awful at cutting promos. And to me that's more important than in ring work

He's perfectly capable of delivering a great promo, but his material and doesn't really work with what the other stick handlers are doing in AEW. He's their ace in the hole, anyway. They're being smart and using him to build up other guys for now, but his eventual run at the top should be pretty great.

Nah they’re using him absolutely terribly. He spends more time booking garbage joshi matches than actually wresting. He is definitely an absolute star though.

There's some kind of minor league wrestling show tonight and tomorrow.

Also here's Liger's finest moment:

Yeah. So begins the crippling of my sleep schedule. Trying to get some sleep so I can watch. Getting to do this two nights in a row is going to be fantastic :/

Day 1 was insane. Day 2 is going to be insane.

Takahashi-Ospreay, Naito-White, and Ibushi-Okada were all incredible matches.

Naito-Okada is going to be epic.

It was probably the delirium from lack of sleep, but I lost it when he called Okada a cabron.
