I decided the whole Rhodes family would be too much, so I will just add glossary terms this week.
Dusty Rhodes was a wrestler and booker for many territories, including the WWE and WCW. He is Dustin and Cody’s father. He was very good at creating storylines. He was very bad at booking matches that would keep the loser looking strong while losing. Remember the Brian Cage/Will Hobbs match last week? The whole match, including Taz on commentary, was booked perfectly. Brian won, but Will still looked strong enough to continue the feud. Saying they were photo negatives of each other is possibly the most clever thing I have ever said. Dusty sucked at this. So he would always book bullshit finishes in the middle of feuds. Count outs. Interference. Referee bumps. Never a clean finish that would make the loser still look strong. Hence the Dusty Finish. WWE still pulls this shit. Dusty died in 2015.
In the WWE, there is a chair that sits just inside the curtain before the wrestlers go out into the arena. This is the last chance for the booker to talk to the wrestler before he goes on stage. In the WWE, this chair was originally occupied by Gorilla Monsoon, a fantastic former wrestler and producer for the WWE. It was the last chance to update the wrestler on changes or give them a thumbs up to get them ready for the match.
AEW has the same spot in the back of their entrance area. In AEW it is referred to as the “Dusty Position”.
AEW Dynamite Preview:
To follow up on above, it is possible for Moxley to win and keep Lance strong to continue the feud.
Even Tully Blanchard is wearing eyeliner. He is 107 years old. I really like Best Friends, but I don’t see them as champions. BTW, they don’t look like best friends in this photo. They look like they are getting ready to kill a hobo.
They really needed a run-in from Shida or at least a promo last week after the match. AEW has done a poor job with the women’s division. They have great wrestlers and poor booking. Shida is also under contract and a champion in Japan. Traveling between the US and Japan is certainly a pain in the ass. It is also possible that the language barrier with Shida and Riho was an issue. An issue easily fixed with managers. I could see them putting the belt on Big Swole and moving on to the Britt Baker feud. Her husband is Cedric Alexander in the WWE.
I did try to get into a Twitter fight with Tony Dungy on Sunday. His remarks after Dak’s injury were horrific. And are nowhere to be found on the NBCSPORTS YouTube channel. I did say some very bad things about him and his son on this site. I was not that mean on Twitter because I use my real name. Not that I wouldn’t own what I said here if I had to. Here was my main issue. So he watches a bone sticking out of a man’s leg. He does not acknowledge the injury, but goes straight to “blessing in disguise” because the Cowboys will be better without him. On no planet are the Cowboys better without him than with him. Maybe the coach could make better play calls without being forced to because his starting quarterback is in surgery. But no, it is Dak’s fault because he is too good at his job. As a world-famous Christian, could we at least get a “thoughts and prayers” before you blame him for the shit play calling of the coach? Maybe Mike McCarthy could call more plays for Zeke without Dak’s foot turning backwards.
There is a HUGE difference between “The Cowboys will be okay” and “The Cowboys will be better now”. You said the latter. Even in this “apology” he is still saying the Cowboys will be better with Dak’s foot separated from his leg and blaming Dak’s talent for the shit play calling of Mike McCarthy. Notice the words he used. “Blessing in disguise”. “Cowboys season isn’t over”. “Could help the defense.” Fuck you with the saguaro I can see out my patio door.
My online persona. Animal House and Blues Brothers are two of the best movie comedies ever made. “Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?” I was in college when John Belushi died. I was in the Cal Poly Pomona Student Union when it was announced he died. I can remember the moment. I remember where I was standing. I remember what I was looking at. I was walking between the TV room and the game room to play pool. I stopped and went back into the TV room. Because of the Blues Brothers, I own 1060westaddison.com. Just so the Illinois Nazis don’t show up at my real house. Cab Calloway, James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Carrie Fisher, John Lee Hooker.
It is on Peacock. And I get my own title card at the end.
