Too true.

Just recalled, I also dreamt recently, after Daniel Bryan's retirement, about sleeping late one day and making it just in time to see him teaching as a professor on campus. He was teaching math and environmental sciences, and everyone from the students to fellow faculty enjoyed his presence.

At that point, I wondered out loud: "Why would Daniel Bryan opt out of the remainder of his WWE contract for a part time teaching gig?" Immediately everything in sight began to fold in on itself and people dissolved as the dream world collapsed.

And then I woke up.

Had this dream last night: I met Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins at a bar in town, and they asked me if I wanted to come along with them to visit a mutual friend's house. It turned out that they wanted me to drive them to a stranger's house.

Whoever that stranger was, he posted something negative about them online, and Dean was determined to go up into the attic, retrieve a small wrestling trophy he left there years ago and make it back to the car parked outside the house in under fourteen minutes.

Why fourteen minutes? Seth and I discussed this at length while we waited for Dean, and I decided to wander into the house rather than continuing to listen to his voice.

I went through the front door, just as Dean had. After encountering a house full of neckbeards and playing some Super Smash Bros. with some of them, this guy who looked like Kevin Owens dressed in a $5000 shirt escorted me out of the building. He practically threw me down the stairs before I tumbled into Seth/Deans care and awoke.

This reminds me a of a story Kevin Steen told on a shoot he did with maybe Chris Hero? Basically Kevin was in a tag match with Joe in Canada somewhere & there was an Irish whip spot to the outside that ended up bumping into a pregnant girl & her man was fuming & screaming at Kevin until he had someone relay that it was all Joe & the fan was furious but as soon as he heard the message he looked up from his girl on the ground in pain, looked straight at Kevin & gave him a smile h thumbs up

Just wanted to mention that Powerbomb.TV has two live events this weekend. One tomorrow with the Preston City Wrestling pre-show starting at 1:40 EST (6:40 in the UK) and Beyond Wrestling on Sunday.

Powerbomb.TV is doing a free 20 day trial so if anyone is interested in showing either show, it won't cost them. I think this is also the first live stream for Beyond.

I'd assume a big a part of it is also that they get Legion Hall at Reseda for free, they pay $0 to rent that building, Legion Larry takes 100% of the bar takings, and PWG takes 100% of the door/tickets. They obvously sell a ton of booze so Larry is happy with the arrangement and I guess Dragon is too. They probably make a killing on the door and the subsequent DVD sales and are getting the better end of that deal.

>Moustache Mountain challenge Fish & O’Reilly
>As NXT continues to struggle with the destabilizing presence of Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly, two Superstars — Tyler Bate & Trent Seven — appear ready and willing to face the intruders head-on. Following the unruly outsiders’ beatdown on Wolfgang last week, Bate & Seven challenged Fish & O’Reilly to a tag team match. The duo known as “Moustache Mountain” took exception to the fact that the irreverent group would target one of “their guys.” Before setting their sights on NXT, O’Reilly & Fish built an incredible resume as a team around the globe, capturing titles in both the United States and Japan. Now that they’ve been called out by Bate & Seven, Fish & O’Reilly prepare for their first bout as a tandem inside NXT’s yellow ropes. Can Bate & Seven avenge their fellow U.K. Superstar and deal a major blow to NXT’s intruders with a victory tonight? Or will O’Reilly & Fish back up their boasts and out-of-ring attacks by triumphing against two of the U.K.’s best in official NXT competition?

>Aleister Black breaks his silence
>Since arriving on the scene in NXT, Aleister Black has let his actions speak for him. Using his head-turning Black Mass finisher to profound effect, the Dutch destroyer has laid out one Superstar after another as he’s accumulated his impressive undefeated streak over the past five months. However, the mercurial Superstar has yet to utter even a single word during that time, leaving the NXT Universe only to speculate about his motives inside the ring. Tonight, that all changes. Find out what the mysterious Black has to say when he breaks his silence.

> Right now WWE has four clear major stars that they are protecting, Cena, Strowman, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. All are on the Raw brand, so the lip service to separate but equal which was said leading into the latest brand split during the summer of 2016 is clearly out the window. Of those big four who in some form are likely to headline WrestleMania, there are now no new fresh matches. Lesnar and Reigns has been the plan since March or earlier for the 2018 WrestleMania main event, but plans change regularly and there was a time when that match was moved to SummerSlam. Then, because Samoa Joe did so well in his originally scheduled one-and-done program with Lesnar, the decision was made to change SummerSlam to a four-way.

> Kairi Sane over Toni Storm was the originally penciled in finish before the tournament started, which was switched to a semifinal when the plans were made to go all out with Sane and Baszler with the Horsewomen angle. One person close to the situation said in the end, the idea was done early in the week to make the final night about Sane and save the Horsewomen angle for later with the decision to go with Sane being made most likely on Monday.

> When it comes to the most-watched shows on the network for this past week, the tournament dominated, as the top ten were: 1. Mae Young Classic episode eight; 2. Mae Young Classic episode seven; 3. NXT for 9/6; 4. Mae Young Classic episode 5; 5. Mae Young Classic episode 6; 6. SummerSlam; 7. Mae Young Classic 4; 8. Mae Young Classic 3; 9. Mae Young Classic 1; 10. WCW Fall Brawl War Games 1998. 205 Live this past week fell to 13th place, behind a 19-year-old WCW event, so the Enzo inspired added crowd reaction and star power at least in week two doesn’t appear to have continued the rise in audience levels.

> Diamante Azul was out of action this past week after winning the CMLL Grand Prix, with the promotion saying it was because he had a family emergency in France. Aficion reported that he won’t be at the anniversary show but he is still listed in the lineup and CMLL said he will be back this weekend

> Francisco Zapata Jr., best known as El Macho as well as Sultan Gargola in a career from the mid-80s through at least 2015, passed away on 9/10 at the age of 60, reportedly due to cancer. Sultan Gargola was a regular heel here from 1991-93, and worked mostly as El Macho, or sometimes in a unit of Los Machos, where he was El Macho #1. Most remembered the name Sultan Gargola better than El Macho. He started his career as El Animal and became El Macho around 1986. He held the Mexican national cruiserweight title from November 20, 1987, through March 30, 1990

>So this is the internal story regarding the Vince McMahon/Kevin Owens head-butt. The story is that there was no blade involved nor was blood planned. Of course that is the same story with all the WrestleMania and Brock Lesnar match hardways. I suppose anything is possible with Vince and he’s not going to let hardly anyone know, but as far as those involved in setting up the angle know, there was no talk before the angle about blood or how to shoot if there was blood. I was told nobody was talking about blood beforehand and it just so happened. Of course, if Vince wanted blood, he just as easily wouldn’t have told anyone ahead of time.
>Those who are skeptical of the story note that if McMahon did it, he wouldn’t tell anyone and there was more blood than one would usually get from a head-butt.

>[Flair] can’t walk without a walker but his able to do light work on an exercise bike in trying to rebuild himself

>The 9/24 show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, with Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman for the Universal title and Roman Reigns vs. John Cena is at press time about 700 tickets short of sold out.

>Apparently there are multiple different ideas being thrown around for the Horsewomen vs. Horsewomen feud. Among the things to be worked out include how to make sense of it with Charlotte and Lynch on Smackdown and Bayley and Banks on Raw, although they can cross that over, particularly if they’re doing it in November when it’s a joint PPV. But there is at least talk of Rousey vs. Charlotte at some point in a singles match. Previously, almost everyone figured that Rousey’s first singles match would be with Stephanie

>[Canadian Impact Zone] isn’t really an arena. It’s a building that usually houses trade fairs, wine shows and senior citizen breakfasts and such. They are going to have to build something for the tapings because the building has no dressing rooms and few bathrooms. There are no bleachers with just a flat floor although they have room to put as many as 2,800 in the building.

>LUCHA UNDERGROUN Things look bleak here. The people who funded seasons two and three have not committed to a fourth season. …

I didn't even skim that figuring it was just a rundown of questions.

Only somewhat notable Network news was that they seem happier with the MYC scheduling than the 10 week CC tournament.

Why is Braun at 11.00? He's my number 1 pick, though I can definitely see them going with Roman or Cena again.

So as you might have heard, Mexico City experienced a 7.1-magnitude earthquake on Tuesday. Arena Mexico is being used as a supply center, meaning CMLL aren't going to run Mexico City shows for a while.

From Wikipedia:
>Two notable events have interrupted CMLL's Friday night shows: the 1985 Mexico City earthquake stopped the Super Viernes shows until it was determined that Arena México was structurally sound.[1] In the spring and summer of 2009 the Swine Flu pandemic shut down Arena México shows for a couple of weeks after the government urged people not to gather in large groups while the epidemic was at its worst.[3]

Cubsfan said no damage to Arena Mexico or Arena Coliseo. I hope Puebla is ok. That's a fun b-show every week.

>Fast forward to 2019. No Chance In Hell blasts on the speakers as Vince McMahon appears at the top of the entrance. But instead of hearing applause or boos or any noise, he sees no crowd. No signs. In the stand, there's one fan who looks only at the ring. McMahon and the cameras try to get a clear view of them, but can't. Without missing a beat, McMahon walks down to the ring, but the fan just keeps looking at the ring. McMahon is a little unnreved at this point, but he knows he has a show to do.

>He calls for a microphone, but no one's there to hand him one. No announcers. No timekeeper. Nobody. He gets upset and shouts profanity about the lack of professionalism in his company and the lack of respect by the WWE Universe for not attending. He finally grabs a microphone that he finds on the turnbuckle. He hits a few times to see if it still works. As he's about to speak, he looks at the fan. McMahon becomes curious and puts on his glasses to get a better view. He first notices the pale complexion on the fan. He moves closer to the ropes to get a better view. The camera zooms in closer to both their face. The fan's face is seen clearly. Shocked at what he sees, McMahon slowly begins to gasp before the camera fades.

>The fan was Owen.

>This one time, Heath Slater came out for a match on Velocity. Halfway through his match, he realized that WWF Velocity ended in 2006, and he didn't debut in WWE until 2010.

>He then realized that his opponent in the match was spiders.
