Not sure I'm buying Dean being done. Seems kinda Pillman esque. Maybe a kind of redux of the Union of People You Oughta Respect (Shane) to capitalize on the AEW buzz?

edit: okada, not naito, in the g1.
not bad pal. not bad. im watching the match now, so lets see how it is... i liked his match with okada at wk, but more because of okada and the crowd. i still think white is kinda bland offensively, we'll see how this goes. he does have a natural heel aura on the mic though.

edit: great match. definitely the best of whites career. 4.25 seems about right to me. the gedo interference doesnt bother me that much, because it fits him and white well... red shoes' cadence annoys the fuck out of me so much. the pause between 2 and 3, every single false finish, is absolutely infuriating. witty, i think youll even enjoy this match, it wasnt a typical 100 miles an hour spot after spot after spot match. there was selling and psychology throughout. hell, white was even selling the knee work done to him in the post match. im impressed. i dont know for certain, id say the match was only about 25-28 minutes too, so it isnt a marathon watch. i dont recall hearing the 30 minute call, but i definitely heard the 20 minute call, so im guessing on the time, but it seems reasonable.

I doubt anyone's watching Fastlane, but nevertheless...


This is actually some very good booking with Kofi IMO.


But in typical WWE fashion I doubt they follow through with the payoff that would make it worth it.


They're really good at setting stuff up very awesomely but then coming up jokingly short in the follow up.

so i got to most of the show this afternoon, i skipped a couple of the matches i didnt care about (usos vs shane/miz, womens tag and i havent watched the shield yet but i might get around to it at some point). the us title, the raw tag titles and the wwe title matches were all very good. the "we want kofi" chants were real legit at the beginning of that wwe title match, if they pay this off correctly, they actually ran this version of the storyline better than the way they did it with becky. just because im sure new day are still big merch movers, id be stunned if they dont pay this off with kofi winning the title.

WM is going to be over 5 hours... so long.

Summer Slam tickets is 2000 for floor seats and 500 lower bowl, why would they charge so much
