If that doesn't work, we won't take calls because it can always take text messages, four to five seven eight zero seven five six six is the number for text messages, here today. And we've got a lot of news to get into like is you're joining us today. I want to get out of the way since everything seems to be fine, if you missed the Verano day scandal, oh show last night, there was a spot where Aerostar did a gigantic dive off of a lighting rig, or something of that sort and fell gut. Only knows how far the seem like twenty twenty five feet and he was supposed to be caught by two guys. Which, by the way, if you're gonna fall twenty twenty five feet. Don't try to be cut by two guys. It's nothing but a problem, but they cut his lower body nut is upper body. So he flipped over appear to have landed on his head. Looked like he was killed. But as it turns out the report, we got this morning is that it appears he did suffer a concussion, but no other injuries other than that he was at the hotel after the show, he was laughing about it. He was having a good time. He was apparently fine. I don't think that this is an indication that he should doing things like this. I think it's crazy. But for those of you wondering Aerostar appears to be fine outside of concussion after falling from an incredible height. That's amazing. Because if anybody saw it forget about landing at his head he looks like he lands, right on his neck and not not of his neck. When he's going over to his back on his neck when he was flipping over frontward it was terrifying. And I we have been yelling about things since Naito Tabuchi the latter match. Matches the way that has gone to a can you top the scenario. They scare me because it's going to end in somebody's fracture of something Necker arm, or something, it's going to be nasty. And I think the same thing when it comes to some of those falls, and you mentioned Kofi Kingston doing the trust fall, that move is also one of Darby, Allen's favorites, who who's going to Awa and who knows what the presentation of e and what they're going to have their guys do, but that is one of his specialties that I hope does not get take it into the into the spotlight for a for everyone to see and chair into along the lines of Kofi Kingston's, because it is a bad move that frankly, does not make any sense at all in terms of wrestling, and on top of it. If somebody does miss that person is in deep deep. Trouble already a couple of other notes here, then we'll go to the phones, and such, we've got the raw show for tonight. W E has an essay fatal. Five-way brunson. Roman ms. Ricochets sorrow and Lashley winner. We'll get a shot against Samoa Joe. It's been grounds on June twenty third, and we've also got Stroman, MS, and well it was last week. Stroman, MS and shabby Joseph's Arlen, Lashley, Rick shape into sorrow, so sorrow, by the way, totally fine. He was not injured last week when ricochet drifted south and it is six thirty unto his legs, he was apparently totally fine. But he knew it looked like he was killed. So he sold, like he broke his leg. But in fact, he didn't break his leg, and he was totally fine. So he is a professional. And also tonight, Daniel Bryan appearing on raw this wildcard thing. Like we got he'll GM's and the he'll GM's appeared to get angry. When certain people show up on the show, but at the same time, they also invite certain people to the show and story storyline depending on the week. So Dale Brian has been invited to raw. I don't know. I don't know what's going on in many ways, going to be unwrought tonight. So that's Rohan. I, I don't know if we're always invited. I only know the Daniel Bryan is invited. Well, I mean, he should be allowed to be invited because I know they've not about being allowed to be excited. I don't know if he's been invited. Maybe he hasn't been invited. I thought he was a partner, though of tag team champion by default. That makes it now if one guys wildcard the other one, you must be a brother. Apparently like the use does well, he's his brother in keeping the earth, clean. It's are you kidding me? Don't make rules here. Oh, they've also now Ziglar versus woods for smackdown on Tuesday. I mean, if this or any of the pro Russian companies Ziglar beats woods, and then beats the hell out of him and Kofi makes say, but it's W E. So who knows woods could win. And we've also got new day. Well, that was last week moment of bliss has been announced Bailey will be Alexa, bliss, guest and that shows taking place from the Toyota arena and. Ontario, california. So I guess I guess the question about raw and the pay per view, and everything else, since they are announcing a Daniel Bryan appearance is Daniel Bryan, going to be working in Tacoma because he's a he'll, and he'll be a baby face in Tacoma. Have they thought about this yet? What's going on? Tune in tonight era to find out. All right. Let's go to the phones. We got David in Missouri on the air, David. What is going on? Mentioned Daniel Bryan because that was what I was about to say, why the hell is it Daniel Bryan and a big feature mash and a pay per view, frigging, Washington state. Well, because Daniel Bryan is a heel. And if he does a show in Washington state, he will be the most over baby face on the show, and maybe they don't want that. It takes me. They went ticket till don't they tickets are struggling why not advertise large, Daniel Bryan jail. Hey tonight, they may they may announce a Daniel Bryan match tonight. We'll have to find out. They have a hot crowd. That's another thing. They need people not sitting on their hands. They wouldn't sit on their hands for Dana Brian contests, and let me call me crazy. Call me crazy. Can you imagine if they had a heel team that, you know, they can take advantage of and hey, look, Daniel Bryan could still cheat to win in his hometown. You can still have that. But you get face off against some other team. And you know, that's not heavy machinery, because you want them to be tiered. Have them face off against somebody else. You don't care about and having defend the titles. I know crazy concept. Thank you caller. I appreciate it. I want to say one thing about this, by the way, because it is WEF seen this happen before. So to me, Daniel, Brian is going to be cheered pretty much no matter what. And so there's two options, okay. If. I'm running this company option. Number one is I don't care, and I spoken match and he gets cheered and I don't care. And I go back to having booed the next week. That's option. Number one option. Number two, is he's not on the show because you're convinced that there's no way that he's going to be booed, and you don't want, you don't want him cheered it, so you just don't have on the show. Okay. So these are the two logical options. There's a third option. But I that I see as a possibility because of how Vince McMahon has done things in the past. And that is, Vince convinces himself that he can get Daniel Bryan, booed in Washington state and h rise. Okay, believe me. I think there's at least a forty percent chance of this, this option happening at, like every time he tries this he fails. But like you gotta give the guy credit that he hasn't give up his whole idea of I could get I can get Roman reigns. Cheered. I'll just have brought booed. I mean he tried that for six months in it didn't work. But God he was gonna was determined. To try. So there is that possibility that they will book Dale, Brian for a match and they will convince themselves that they can get the guy booed and you know what? Maybe they're right. I don't know. But if it were me, I would do option one, which is put him on the show. And I don't care if he gets cheered or option to just not have on the show. We'll see what they decide fulfill with option one and put them in against the team that he'll get cheered against who cares. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter at all. Well, what's he gonna do any insult to see hawks? That's any team. Near says I tried to get my ticket for all out. But scalpers did their thing and I kept waiting in the queue for over an hour. They should run a stadium at this point. Well, they would've I'm, I'm pretty confident, I know Dave's got a lot of math, and he's got a lot of I don't know what he's got. But. I, I am confident with none of that, that they would have sold out stadium for this show. I do believe that now as far as like scalpers and everything like that. I am also very confident that there was less scalper activity than a lot of people think I would say that eighty five ninety percent of the people that got tickets. Where Where'd I go? Oh, it's Mike eighty five to ninety percent of the people that got tickets were real human beings. The gut tickets for that show, probably ten to fifteen percent were scalpers. You can see it on the scalp or market. There are not a lot of tickets, there probably will be more and people see what they could get for tickets, but eighty five to ninety percent of the people that bought those tickets. And that key were real human beings Beckenham with more observer alive. Right now.

Also on my Twitter at Bryan Alvarez also on my Twitter, by the way an update on Aerostar so last night. He wasn't tell and the word was that he had suffered a concussion in his fall, but that he was having a good time, and he was laughing about it, and everything, seemed to be okay. Well are the buddy who some at the airport within the last hour, and he was in a neck brace? So that is the update on Aerostar. And if we hear more will let you know, so there you go. Couple of text messages here. If you wanna give us a text message for to five seven eight zero seven five six six this person says the last time Daniel Bryan was in Washington. It was Everett on smackdown in February. He cut he'll promo. Tried to get booed fans to not care and cheered him regardless, you were there as well in the front row. Remember that terrible show barely. I'm sure if I went back and looked at my notes out or member, but oh stop now. Seriously? I barely remember the show. I don't know. It was on a random. I don't remember. I mean, yeah, I know you got cheered. He's gonna get your no matter where he goes. But. I actually don't think he'd hearted, Marco, and the stunned family, drop you on your head a little bit too much. I'm so shows, I go to and how many Roz and smack downs I watch, I don't remember a show from ever ever. It's getting Raleigh every other week. Like, what are you talking about? They're getting raw every other week. Do you know how many shows I go to do you do? I know who you are. Yes. Do you know who I am? I don't remember what happened to the last RAF. I looked at my notes. I'd remember about the top of my head. I don't remember what was it a random raw God only knows how many months ago because it was probably the exact same show that I saw on Monday. Wouldn't live out that that's that's true. Burson says, I don't think it'd be hard to get Brian booed Washington's a smart state. They love Brian. They boo him to show their level that didn't happen the last time. So we're so you've been is you've been corrected, my friend. Oh, god. Daniel Bryan will be corbin's he'll ref this person says. Oh, no, no. I could see him doing it. I hope not. He thinks that would be. I think that would be stupid. Yeah. Person says will people from the b block beat in Dallas? I bought my ticket to see Jon Moxley. Well, you should never buy your ticket for something if something hasn't been announced. And if it's W E you're still still a crap shoot. We have some we have some lineups here for upcoming shows, July sixth is block a so the Dallas show is not blocked be. So if you bought your ticket ac-, Jon Moxley it looks like you're not going to see him, although this is just the block matches there. They're going to be some tag matches and stuff on the show. So it's possible that he will be there in those matches, but I don't know. So there is no guarantee that there is a reason to at least be happy in thinking forward about this, which is one, they desperately need to move tickets for that, Dallas show. That's number one. Number two, most of the people that appear on, you know, the get both nights of the show usually appear on that show, whether it be with. Tag matches or however it usually ends up. It's usually multiple person tag team matches. And that's probably remarks, he's going to be he's in it. So this is what you will, see if you go to Dallas, Texas for night, one of the G one on July sixth of the American Airlines arena, you will see. We'll Osprey versus Lance Archer. I'm not sure that would be my number one choice for, we'll Osprey match but it probably will still be very good. You will see evil versus bad luck. Fawley. It's a match. Hold on. Also revert back to Lance Archer is being relied on in being asked to do a lot of local promotion and things like that. And here's the one thing that you get out of that you get possibly Lance archers best matching this tournament the way things have been going with willow spray. So I actually understand that one. If I if you look at it from that point of view, it does make sense. Let's see what else we've got here. We have so NADA versus Zack sabre junior, which would be a very good match coda Bucci versus Kenta up to find out what Kent has got in him. Is he Hideo Itami? Or is he Kenta? We'll find out and in the main event of the show. If you go to Dallas, Texas, on, July six for the opening night of the G one at the American Airlines are in a you will see Okada versus ton Ashi could be good. That will be an excellent match. So there you go. The entire list of all of the block. Matches are available at wrestling, observer die comment. Elsewhere. Here's the first night of block b everybody Shingo Takagi will face. Juice Robinson should be very good match Naito will face Toru Yano a night off. Is she e will face? Jeff cobb. Had sounds incredible. Yeah. Goto will face j white and yes, in his g one climax debut Jon Moxley will be facing Taichi. Perfect. Get that damn match out of the way. I if I were Jon Moxley, I'd say, gimme Taichi, first, let's get that one over with. So there you go. Jeff cobb. And in the she either. Yeah. Samoan squad team. The slamming in each other top speed that, that is, you know, the again opening night, there is my darkhorse for match of either block on opening night. All right. Let's go to the phones. I believe Savan is on the air savant, are you there? Yes. Our ally today. What's up? Question. It always tickets took it talks, and w w tickets onto them. Well, it's eighty w really affecting to get shows for every other wrestling organization as I'm, I'm gonna even include new Japan 'cause I don't see a lot of people travelling to Dallas for new Japan. G one either you know, I know without Moxley you know on the G one even on the beginning night. I, I would think that with AB ws how hot they are. I think they did kind of drop the ball with the stadium show this year. And I just kind of want your thoughts on that. It's not only affecting WWE. But now it's affecting new Japan my friend, my friend. I wanna I wanna thank you very much for the call Savan. But let's let's, let's look at things here. Yes, I believe I believe that a w could have sold at a stadium for this all out show coming up at the end of August, but he w has nothing to do with nobody buying tickets for stomping grounds. The reason that nobody is buying tickets for stomping grounds is because this cart sucks. This card is like it's like revenge on me for running down this promotion and they're booking for the last year. Plus, that's why this show is taking place into it's so horrible. Like, I can't even believe how horrible the stomping grounds card. Is it it's inconceivable to me that this card could be this bad? But that's that's why nobody is buying tickets for Tacoma. The G one, the g one I mean new Japan. They wait forever to list a card. I mean that dude, there, the bud is ticket for Jon Moxley. I mean do we still don't even know if Jon Moxley is in a tag match on that? Chilling. How hard is it to release the entire card for the American Airlines when he we know that the block matches word the rest of the match is on this show? This is the way that new Japan does business. It is. It is fine in Japan. This is the way they've always done it, and people, they still buy their tickets. But in America, like people wanna card like if you're going to go to the G one dude, if you don't live in Dallas, you gotta you gotta buy ticket. You got a bio tell you got to buy a plane flight. We don't know a damn thing about the show, and that's why tickets are not flying off the shelves. I mean it was in close proximity to. Wouldn't it was what, what else there's another e w shots in close proximity to. But you gotta look at the fighter fest, and the other Awa shows those aren't sold out either. So it's not a w impacting ticket sales for other groups right now. They've got their fans that want to see them and they're willing to travel, or, or buy tickets and large numbers. But like if w we had a blow away show and good booking. They would have sold out to comb, immediately and summer slams. I'm not it's already sold out. Wrestlemainia was sold out like the show is just to show. It's a big show that people sees a big show. They're gonna buy tickets. And if not, they're not, and for whatever reason they don't see this opening night of the G one is big show. It's also holiday weekend. We gotta travel. There are a lot of tactical errors as you mentioned that new Japan makes and that's their biggest achilles heel in the United States, with ring a Bonner. They're not selling tickets because they're nice, cold product right now, that people don't have seemingly have a whole lot of faith in same thing goes down the line for whatever she said wanna make about whoever else. It is very simply you don't have a card, and you don't have a promotion people care about. That's why they're not buying tickets eight w has that they have a incredibly incredibly energized fan base. That is currently all in all of them are all in not just using that as a is a tease on words, but everything is still red hot for them right now. So anything that they touch is going to be my for their people. So everybody else doesn't have that right now. And one really does not have to do with the other other than to look at AWS. Go, okay. How do we get that out of the people that are buying our tickets, disperse? Says are seemed to be an assumption that whatever number of people were in the queue for all out number of people looking for tickets is double that because these people are buying tickets for other people, let's say four friends want to go together. It's quite plausible all four in the queue and on multiple devices. So how can these estimates be accurate? I'm not making my estimates are as general is can be okay. There were seventy two thousand five hundred people or seventy two thousand five hundred individuals, whatever in the queue, okay? That's it. That's all. I know for sure. Right. I also know that the number of those that were bought cetera was very low probably ten fifteen percent. So there were some sixty thousand people, whether it be four computers to computers. Whatever, like, I don't know how many people I don't know how many tickets, everybody wanted, okay? But, but clearly with sixty thousand real people there in the queue, like it was going to sell very well period. That's it. That's the end of the story back in a moment, observer live.

Begging the show, Brian Alvarez here. Wrestling, observer lab, mix them. Proverbial wrestling, observer dot com. I can't tell these people are serious or of their like sending emails so that I will, I don't know this person year says, what's what this w buzz. So what they sold at another ten thousand seat arena, literally all they have done is an average, pay per view, and made some shirts, people out there acting like they have the cure for cancer. Well, I mean, can we swing from one end of the pendulum to another, my friend? They, they sold out ten thousand seats and actually more than that, but they sold it out, because that's all the seats that were available if they had put on sale seventy thousand seats they would've sold that out. They would have done exactly or more as many tickets as wrestlemainia that is an absolute fact from the people that sell tickets. Okay, there adverage, pay per view. They did over one hundred thousand buys for that pay per view. If you if you factor in. Streaming and traditional pay per view, which is more than TNA ever did ever that's, including when they had strong television on spike TV it's almost double the best, pay per view. The teeny ever did their existence. So, and they sold more t shirts in hot, topic, they sold so many t shirts that. I think it was who was it? Anyway, point is they sold a preposterous number of t shirts. So no, they're not curing cancer, you numb skull, but you don't have to go clear the other way as well. And act like they've only sold a couple of fillings, wer sell it to penalty buildings. You can't dismiss them out of hand anymore. Because again, we have a long way to go. We don't even know what they're going to be. They don't even know what they're going to be until that TV show hits in his up and we know what it is. But you cannot deny this other stuff as much as you may want to as much as you want to blow it off. You don't have to believe in it, but she got to know that it's there doing except that this is from they have said this publicly. They said this publicly by the way, after the double or nothing show, which was a gigantic success for them. There. I don't wanna say they're worried that's the wrong word. But like they understand that this live TV thing is going to be a gigantic undertaking. They are not fully prepared for right now. I mean it just is they've never done live TV two hours weekly. I mean it is a gigantic jump, and who knows how that's going to work out. All we know is it everything that they've done so far. They have succeeded at in spite of people thinking they are going to fail. But we, we do not know nobody knows what's going to happen, when they get national television. There's a million things that could happen. It could be. It could be a here's here's to both ends of the pendulum. It could be an absolute disaster. They could be completely and totally unprepared. For two hours of live television every week, they could sell not gets to weekly television. It could be an unmitigated disaster. That is the worst case scenario. I. I don't think that's going to happen, but it could happen. The other end of the pendulum is they've got a lot of people working with them, who have done national television before. They've got people that work for w w and impact. And granted that doesn't sound great on the surface. Because both of those companies had disastrous runs as well. But these are people who have done this before. And it is possible that right out of the gate, they will do competitive numbers with the third hour of raw and smackdown on, on USA network. It that is possible. Now all I can tell you is that there's an incredible demand when they put tickets on sales for their large events, not for their small events. You gotta think about that, like fighter fest, the these smaller events, do not do the kind of business that the big events, do, and when you're doing weekly TV, those weekly TV shows, are going to be more akin to a fighter fest. Then a double or nothing. So we don't know how many tickets are going to sell on a weekly basis. We have no idea. They have no idea, nobody has any idea, but I do know that TNT is available in more homes than the USA network. They are not going on the pursuit channel. They are not going on Sinclair. They are on a national primetime broadcast network that is in more homes in the USA network. So it is possible. It is possible that they could do the numbers that Ron smackdown or doing, maybe not right out of the gate. Maybe it's gonna take a while. No, buddy knows we have to wait and see. It's a long, long long way off, but he starts started looking at, you know, if they do start picking up some traction on TV, which obviously hoped to right off the bat. You know, when it comes time to start running, how shows how all that's going to work and how that's gonna throw a wrench. Into things for some of these guys with, you know, open, ended contracts or contracts that make them available to, to work. Somebody else's promotion. There's a there are a lot of questions be answered that are going to, you know, just as one thing unfold. Something else is going to pop up as an issue in. That's the one thing we're going to see it all in real time on a really grand stage. Poor. Brad here said, they'd put my cat Lincoln down an hour ago was very peaceful now being at home without him is actually the hardest part for me. I'm listening to server lie, which is helping me thank you. Well, Brad, I understand out because nine years ago, I had to put a cat down, and it was like the worst thing that ever happened to me. It was horrible. So I feel very bad for you. Hopefully, hopefully, the show makes you feel better. We're not going to Ryan MO we are going to our next caller who I'm not even sure who it is. I believe Austin in Knoxville. Austin are you on the air? Yes. What's up? I'll ask first about the, the part timer issue. And w overuse with the with the Goldberg undertaker match going the way it did. And then with the Teesta and Kurt angle, both retiring at this mania is there any chance, we're going to start to see a gradual shift away from the over USA, part timers on these big cards and maybe some better spots for the whole time. Guys. That is, she younger part timers. Yeah. That's a good question. I want to thank you very much for the call. I mean. They're always going to try and bring names back as just the way it is. And the thing with the WBZ audience today is if someone's gone for awhile and you bring them back their like over, even if they're not somebody that was like a massive undertaker level star. So I don't think the days of bringing people back is over. I think they're always going to they're always going to bring people back, but I don't know. I mean it is a little bit. Just funny, the way things are right now. Like if you're on WBZ TV every week, you're not over in ninety eight percent of the cases. But if you disappear for awhile and comeback, you are over. So what does that tell you about the state of the television? You're moreover, not being on the TV show. Oh, but that's been that way for how long, you know, Wade Barrett or Bertrando, Rio or somebody shame as somebody we get hurt go out for a while. It's like as soon as they came back. They were the biggest thing and. You had that hope for a minute that, okay? You got another chance. Let's see. You don't screw this one up. And then they would eventually screw it up. So this has been an issue for quite some time. Now. If you're eighty WD use someone is a sight, gag in this, like, rob van dam. Do you bring somebody back to like that? Just just to do it. Or are you risking people wanting to see that person all the time, much like is the case in WWE? I don't think there's nothing. There's nothing wrong with bringing back older stars if they are not put in a position to like be the focal point of the company like if Awa wants to bring back RV D And they can find something cool to do with him and the fans love seeing him in that role than who cares do it. The problem is that, you know, put them over MJ f right away. I think a lot of people here that w is going to bring back somebody. They get really excited hoping that something cool would be done. And then they're disappointed by what w. Me does with them. I think that's part of the problem, obviously in w w when, like the old guys were headlining all of the shows and nobody was ever being elevated and the old guys just kept getting older. And having the same horrible matches like we don't see that in WB. I know that I know that people go man, you know, hundred took a spot away from somebody else by wrestling for thirty minutes at mania and it's like, no, he didn't. He did not exactly psycho, clown. He just didn't like he didn't headline the show. Yeah. The matches too long, but if he wasn't on the show, it's like somebody else would have gotten thirty it's not going to give Daniel Bryan, another thirty minutes for his match with Kofi. They don't put these guys, these old guys. Yeah. I understand that undertaker Goldberg headline Saudi Arabia, but it wasn't really a wrestlemainia. It was it was a stupid, nothing happening show in Saudi Arabia Friday afternoon. The w network sold show for sixty million dollars. They were offered sixty million a headline with the entertainment Goldberg subdued. I'd headline with undertaker versus glamour, these show. Engelbert knocked himself out of and if he had, and they didn't look bad for the first three minutes of that match. Lee knocked himself out. They could have had a good match who even knows. You can't judge on a do getting knocked out and then doing the rest of the match with a concussion for crying out loud. Now, let me ask you something. It's not like Gobert doesn't want to do some Ijaz ain't going do it. But do you think anybody works on his pride? And do you think they dried raw him back? One more time by saying. Hey, Lou Goldberg. Yeah, he wants to okay. I was going to say because I can imagine him wanting that tastes Avs mouth. And I can imagine them down the line if they need him putting kind of putting those screws to go. And hey, you wanna you know, he want to try to race that memory. We gotta do this one more time dude, listen. Let me tell you some. The how long was that match? Eight minutes. Let me go. Find out felt like forever. It wasn't that long. Let me let me see how long it was because there was a lot of rumors about that, that match, but I, I got a couple of facts that we're told me rumors that people yell at each other or this or that or not. Changes were made. So the entertainment versus Goldberg was nine minutes and thirty five seconds. That's how long it went. Okay. So all I can tell you is that however, long that match went that was roughly the amount of time that they were given. So it wasn't like they were giving four minutes. And they went nine it's not like they were given fifteen minutes and they were given nine all right. So the way that Goldberg works, especially the most successful Goldberg when he had his second run couple years ago like they were probably only gonna go about eight minutes. I think that was the time they were originally given was eight minutes. And if he hadn't gotten concussed, I mean, honest to God, I really honest to God think that that would have been a pretty good match. They, they would've had a simple match they would have done only their best spots. I mean nine minutes, eight minutes and undertaker Goldberg match. You know, a lot of that is undertaking, just walking around. So I think that if Goldberg came back and didn't knock himself out, I think he. Could come back and have one more good match just being the old Goldberg. So I think it's going to happen. We'll see. This person year says. Why do you think everyone who picks on a w is a diehard W E supporter? Isn't it possible that some people have valid criticisms of both products? Jim cornet being the perfect example. Yeah. Of course, there are some of those people like we don't have to swing on this show of this pendulum to another. Okay. Yes. That is true in some cases, but the vast majority of these, these weird pieces of feedback I get are from the hardcore w e group that don't wanna see somebody else spring up, now it is funny. It is funny when I used to hear these W, E diehards, I would think why don't you want competition to spring up only gonna make Debbie better? Well, I've changed my mind and like, if I were a W E die hard, I probably wouldn't wanna see w spring up because so far. It hasn't made me better at all. No. Person-years asking about minority Suzuki very upset that he's not in the g one this year. I forget the term that he used. But it was. Where is it something about how he'd been shunned or something like that shun? I don't think it's that bad, buddy. Somebody put missing in the corner, he's just not in the g one it is sad. It is. I mean, here's a guy who said that Lance Archer is in, in Taichi Zouqi is not. And I mean I do I do agree with that, like Taichi Suzuki isn't come on. Well, that is ridiculous Taichi can take more of a beating on multiple nights for heaven's sakes. He'd come on, look, forget about the G one isn't everyone's real main of, at this, you're going to be Leishman, Suzuki would say, only get in with each other come on.
