Welp, now according to Fightful, an experienced doctor has gone over Big E's neck injury and says it "should be career ending". So that's a fudging bummer, but no one seems to be sure at this point.

I actually turned off the stream off halfway through this Edge promo and didn't watch the rest of the show.

These types of promos of "longtime babyface turns heel and cuts a promo insulting and/or blaming it on the fans" is so f'n played out and I didn't want to sit through another one. It's been done hundreds of times before and been done better. I kinda feel the same about Eddie Edwards' recent heel turn too.

I at least appreciate that they're trying something different with Edge, even if it's not hitting home for me perfectly. It would have been very WWE (aka very easy) to just keep him the "Cinderella story" face for the rest of his career.

But that new "you think you know me" intro is corny and the song itself isn't anywhere near as memorable as his other. But I suppose that's the point, strip the heel of anything the fans would cheer for.

Definitely looks weird but could be a lot of fun. I'll give it a go, neat concept.

Tbh I'd like a pro wrestling RPG that isn't as "glamoured" up as that and treated as a legit story, and maybe without the real life legends, but whatev. I'll take what I can get.

25 years ago today, the promo that I credit as launching the Attitude Era.
This promo was one of those moments I'll never forget since the night it happened. It was so unlike the type of promo you'd expect from Bret and was one of the first moments to make me question "surely this can't be scripted, there's no way they could get permission to let him speak like that and not bleep it out". Ironically though, one of my pet peeves is when wrestlers curse in their promos just for the sake of it and with no purpose behind it. Like, I feel this promo means a heck of a lot more than majority of the ones in old ECW where it felt like they were overusing profanity just to be edgy.

Mike Johnson is saying Cody and WWE have come to an agreement.
I hope it was no more than like a 3 year deal or something. I never was a big fan of him, though I also don't dislike him or anything. If the whole AEW thing never happened he never would've made it out of their midcard, but hopefully he gets better treatment now.

Been following this Cody stuff for a few weeks now so I was expecting that. The reported plan is to have Rhodes vs. Rollins at Mania.

Been a fan of Rhodes since the Legacy days, dug the NJPW/indie run he went on, got to see him win the ROH title live in Plymouth MA, and thought his absolute best work was in AEW.

That said, I truly don't have faith that WWE will keep him "on top", or even all that relevant, but it at least gives me a reason to watch WWE (which have become few and far between). It just seems like unless you're one of the World/Universal title picture mainstays like Brock or Roman, you're likely to just be thrown around to random spots on the card with no real chance to build momentum. Most of WWE's on-air roster seem to just be going through the motions, with the common "main eventers" seeming to be the only ones who ever have any actual direction (and even then it's slight). I hope they use him correctly, but I don't expect them to for any extended period of time.

Inb4 Rhodes loses to Rollins at Mania. If they put Triple H over fudging Sting, I wouldn't be surprised whatsoever. WWE loves to "bury" the competition, even if, in Sting's case, that competition hasn't existed in 20 years.

Pretty neat find, WWF Super Slams ripped from VHS to DVD. It's a burned Region 2 (UK) DVD but I mainly snagged it due to the packaging. I used to own this VHS when I was a kid and vividly remember the box and the nice professionally-printed recreation DVD label here is a nice touch. The tape itself was a compilation of matches filmed from various different shows, which seems so strange in hindsight but I never minded it back in the day. I know they'll never re-release this as an actual DVD and it's not on Peacock's WWF Coliseum Video section, so I don't mind a burned disc given the packaging. I don't have a VHS player, but do have a means of playing Region 2 DVDs, so I figured this was worth the $9 left on a Visa gift card that it cost me.

I had a similar VHS as a kid that featured Jarrett vs. Razor in a singles match, but I can't find any evidence of its existence for the life of me. Starting to think I just made it up.

I had such a great time at Dynamite last week in San Antonio! The crowd was awesome! Wrestling is so much fun.

As far as Cody goes, the more time has went on after he left AEW, it makes sense that he's going to WWE. Legacy is a big part of his career obviously, and if AEW isn't going to pursue the all out war that he supposedly wanted, then it makes more sense for him to make even more of a history with the storied Rhodes name. No hate from me, nothing but respect for the guy, and I hope he can finally do in WWE what he probably always wanted to. As it is right now, if his career ended, his time in WWE wouldn't be all that great, so maybe he sees this as a chance to right that wrong, and has the ability/power to influence that a little bit. Best of luck to him, I hope that happens!

can't wait to watch dynamite tomorrow as i was busy last week and couldn't watch ir.

@theJaw -you called it correctly MJF interfering in the match. To be honest i had that gut feeling as well. Very rare to have a championship switch hands on consecutive nights for a major title.

I dont call the wwe 24/7 title a real title. To me its just a comedy skit booking to break the staleness of the shows.
