This week’s wrestling story:

When I was a kid, I lived in AWA territory. They would come to town on a monthly basis and would have special outdoor shows at John O’Donnell Stadium, home of the Single A Quad City Angels/Cubs. I do remember one special show attended by me, my dad and my grandmother. The main event was a cage match featuring Doctor X (real name, Dick Beyer) and probably The Crusher. He was a masked heel, hated by all. Because my dad knew some of the wrestlers, we were in folding chairs on the infield, on the aisle. As he is walking past us to the ring through the crowd, I see my grandmother reach into her purse out of the corner of my eye. Suddenly, she stands up and fires a ripe tomato into the back of his head! She could have pitched for the QC Angels with that arm. She had to be in her 50’s at the time. He spend the entirety of the cage match with a tomato stain on the back of his mask.

That is one fine hair sweater!

This week’s preview:

That seems to be an excessive amount of eye makeup

This is one of the downsides of the “Going Home” show. It is hard for Chris Jericho to do anything interesting with the Mimosa match looming on Saturday. For a little background, after Chris won the AEW championship, he came out with his own branded champagne, “A Little Bit of the Bubbly”. Now in a feud with Orange Cassidy, hence the Mimosa Mayhem Match. Feel free to hoist a mimosa during the PPV if you are so inclined.

Sold out!

Second odd piece of information. Nocking Point Winery (home of the above champagne) is co-owned by Stephen Amell, former star of Arrow on the CW. Hence the name of the winery. He is close friends with Cody, performing with him in the ring at WWE. It is expected that he will eventually find time to wrestle with Cody in AEW. He is currently filming his Starz wrestling series “Heels” in Atlanta.

Yes, that is a top rope Suicida to the floor by Oliver Queen. His partner is current AEW wrestler Pac. He is landing on Cody Rhodes and Wade Barrett.

Learn to read the whole contract before your client signs it, dickweed!

This will be a super-fast squash with an MJF run-in at the end. FYI, he isn’t really a lawyer. He is an indy wrestler hired on a weekly basis to be part of MJF’s posse. It is almost certain that every person you see on MJF’s campaign team is a full-time indy wrestler, man or woman.

Dude, don’t talk about my mom!

The only thing this feud is missing is Santana & Ortiz driving up in a blue spangled lowrider bouncing to the music. Maybe they can do a lowrider vs minivan tug-of-war in the parking lot. On AEW Dark this week, Santana said Sue could keep the underwear he left at her house as a souvenir.

We may be friends tonight, but Saturday, it is on, bitches!

I don’t know how two face teams sells PPV buys. SCU are faces and Private Party are heels, so that could sell.

I assume we will also get additional build up for the NWA vs AEW Women’s Championship match. Only the AEW Championship is on the line for this match. There is an agreement between NWA and AEW for NWA talent to appear in AEW. Fun fact. NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) was the original wrestling federation, founded back in the 40’s. Every regional promotion was a member of the NWA and they would have the current champion travel from region to region for matches. The different regions would negotiate who would get the next championship run. It is now owned by Billy Corrigan of Smashing Pumpkins fame (?). They don’t currently have a TV deal, so working with AEW helps them a lot. They show NWA Power on their YouTube channel weekly.

Hikaru Shida, AEW Champion

Buddy Cole's Halftime Show!

Usually when a black guy takes 7 shots to the back in Wisconsin the safe word is ‘this Jeffrey Dahmer role play is over’

Dunstan

When Buddy takes seven shots to the back, he wonders what’s taking the other five guys so long.

Buddy Cole's Halftime Show!

Crushed when I first saw Five Guys was a burger place and not a pay-as-you-go gangbang

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Dahmer was also disappointed in the burgers, but for different reasons.

Is a ninja terminator a ninja who terminates, or someone who terminates ninjas?

I got the crabs in the Philippines once, but they were the smaller Asian variety. Still quite an inconvenience, though.

Nate MacKinnon will win more Stanley Cups than Sidney Crosby, unless he has Mario Lemuiex-level injuries. The Avs are going to be unstoppable for a decade.

When did the Avs decide they wanted to win this series?

Mr. Ayo

When they heard I believed in them.

But Sir White Claw, you were just observing the autodraft like a Falwell.

I wish I could blame that roster on autodraft.

Great, like Wisconsin wasn’t having enough problems with riots already. Do NOT wear anything with black and white stripes anywhere near Milwaukee for the next, oh, two years.
