I've got switchblade Jay white from new Japan pro wrestling here, the end amazing match against Okada at wrestle kingdom. Thirteen watched live. I actually think it's the best matches ever had. And we actually did this interview the day after the Tokyo dome event in Japan. You're the story about the radio contests J one in New Zealand that sent him on all expenses paid vacation to wrestlemainia in Atlanta two thousand and eleven that let him get into wrestling. He's also talking about coming up with the new Japan Dogo learning to speak, some Japanese wide WB is really not on his radar. He's getting a big push. Right now, especially with the. The defections? I guess you'd say of Cody Rhodes in the box. We don't know what the future of Kenya. Maga's? We know the future of j white is is going to be in -sconsin, the new Japan made have seen for a long time. And of course, we're talking about his match against juice Robinson last November. That knocked Jim Ross out of his broadcasting chair and broke his ribs, literally all those stories and so much more. Let's get going here. Enough of my yacking right now talk is Jericho switchblade. Jay white. All right after Russell king of thirteen one of the big stars of the night. Jay white is here. And we were talking about the matches yesterday as to how you feel. Did you feel? Okay. Yeah. Well, yeah. Fisa, thanks for having me. But yet feel right? Doug done longer big matches. So your body's feeling all right in terms of that yesterday, though. Like from what I've seen in the last year that I've been that might have been might have been the best match. I've seen you in. Are they could have been like a helpless been in there with a with a guy. Like, oh, I of course, which they usually goes without needing to be said, but yeah, it was a as fun, and I think ED's that as well. As with at such a long up for it almost a year ago and more intensely over the last couple of months, so that helps to oversee just make it that much bit without new inasmuch as you know, snow thirty minutes or anything like that. It's really interesting when you see how how how how ghetto books here. Uh-huh. Because my match with NATO started at New Year's dash last year to your year ago. A year ago? And I just realized that this whole year has been Jericho feuding with my on there's been dips and doodles with other members of his team and stuff. But I like, wow, I wonder if Gaito planet it that way. And I think he does I think he does. And I think he you'll like I think he has an idea for it. But then he also reacts to stuff like if something changes, and it may be against what he originally thought. It would just go play it Boyer and change it. But yet is like I think this one of the differences, the long term stories and stuff they lost about long hair. And they definitely pay off like you guys last night in with me and Okada's well, and Kenyan and tonner even that that goes back to I think started two thousand sixteen at least when they had their when knock Murray was leaving. And then that was when Kenny came up to loss AJ, Madison Nicobar, I can't he was the guy that came up to replace them as that as that main top guy, and so and the ad that first big match was against for the boat at the time. So. Yeah. It all comes back around. And it will just makes a beautiful for the story for the show for the fans as well. I was going to talk store you mentioned the Naito match. I took a pile driver on the on the ramp and he had wanted to do that. And you're like okay powders on the floor. Never something that you wanted to think about especially when it's not on a pad, but it's the Tokyo dome. Right. And I'm like, okay. Sure. So I went out of my way to protect myself. Of course, it's spike my head even worse, and I felt like my head like burning. That's why when I saw because I didn't see last night we were just off to. So, you know, by the time, you get back to back to the room and in Komen sweat right catcher, so sore this morning. I was I had me look like you really fell and it's over his day. So then I'm in the ring during the match, and I see these strands of hair thick strands affair with little pink thing at the end of it as his knighthood hair extensions or what is this? Is it my hair and low and behold after the match I had. Big like like a little mini miniature Indian had scalped me. Oh, jeez. Right. Like a quarter sized pink spot with no hair for from the ball drill. Driver. Rip my hair out. And what I was seeing the ring we're strands of hair a little pieces of by scout. Scalp against. So there there's your inside story on that one. But I mean, there's something about the I mean last year wrestle kingdom you worked with HANA this year with Okada like that Tokyo dome. Like I've worked a lot of wrestlemainia shows in domes stadiums. But there's just something about that dome. Just special beyond sped. It is awesome. It's especially like, you said for you, Maine's and stuff you've those bigger arenas boot for us over here. You know, they started to get bigger, but the difference between the dome and the other Rina's, they do it's, you know, it's huge. It's three times as big as the other big shows we do. So you know, when it finally comes around once a year, and I think the planning on doing to Nick say, what's that Nelson? Well, so that'll be interesting. But by the time, it comes around, it is it is as very special, and you know, it is way run wicks wicks too. Because when you work in when you work in a dome the sound travels up. Yeah. Rather than traveling down. So sometimes you'll do dome show, and you're thinking this nobody's making any. Another way to it. And I see that to someone off the show is well like after the match that also the sound of the fans, it doesn't get to you until like a few seconds onto it. So like, you know, if you're doing something in trying to react to the fans, you might stop it. Because like it's not where committed on the sudden the noise comes out. Okay. What was that too? And then when you watch it back TV it's monstrously loud. Yeah. But you don't notice that as much in the ring, right? Yeah. That's like I felt it was weird. I felt I never felt like once you get kinda going into match, and you feel comfortable or confident whatever I didn't really get to that last night. I don't know if it's because of the noise of the fans was kind of weird. So it just felt different to what I was used to. What makes you comfortable? Maybe it was just kind of out failing to it. I think anything from like, the noise and how it doesn't really get to you. And you mentioned when when AJ left, and then Kenny Kenny came came around now with the future of a lot of the guys kind of we don't know if they're staying or going, right? This is a real good time for you. Because it's like you're being positioned. To be kind of the next guy that takes over from Kenya. Took over from AG that took over from from Fergal. Yeah. You know, yet all kind of gets a passed down this this. I think is is great. You new Japan is whenever the opportunity is come up. The guy's always make the most of it like year wouldn't those four guys left two and sixteen. Everyone's kinda like all hell's new Japan paying into you know, we lost knock Moore who is one of the biggest Japanese does. And then you had AJ was the biggest Farner as well. And but the guys are stepped up and business keep getting Bitta. So, you know, the the last year has been good and helping me to build up to that position as well. So just to make it that much easier. For example, I wasn't as nervous last night as it was a year ago, of course. And but for any of like the other any big matches. I wasn't as nervous as a lot of people. You know, would usually expect will think initially because of the last you do plenty of it becomes a just it's also the building startling like, for example, I've been in the business for thirty years or whatever. And I never heard the name j white, and I started working remember? So it's a another. I obviously didn't expect to mimbo listening to your podcast with the ghetto and Anjar. And I think the started doesn't fifteen I'd let you just got to the DOJ and I came in with Cody hole at the same time. Nova see, you know, is to have sculpture sue people know of him. And then I remember in that they were you ask them about the guys at the head coming up, and they'll always guy j wine also. And of course, he didn't. But yeah. So yeah, I would say it's it's been going good for the loss. And when you're building Italic last year, we'll use if you notice as funny. The last two Tokyo dome shows the top three matches are all the same six guys just in different combinations. Yeah. You in China last year me and Kenny in Naito and Okada this change. But you know, last year, I think the improvement in the in this whole year has been up lately bows? But they put you in that shot last year. Just start building you. Yeah. That's the whole maybe it was a little bit too early. But that's just start somewhere executive spread east to be an and also like coming into like the new position in terms of the new character and stuff it's not only new to me, it's new to everybody. So it is going to be received a little bit. Like they were not to show. What was yet? After now a year of doing multiple different things and people on the standing it. It makes it that much much easier and much better for them as well. Barely talk about the the six guys that are in those those top three matches very like a humbling feeling to be to be in there with those guys, you know, it'd be going to be doing this for what be actually in a few days. Probably be six six years since the started training. Really? So it's very cool to be like self yourself being. A for thirty years and the next day off the and I six guys has been doing the shortest amount of time. I think is Okada he'll probably, but he's mows up there. So it's a very very cool feeling and to be able to have those. So you basically started in new Japan I started in England. So I so obviously from New Zealand when I was nineteen I lift I don't know if you've heard this. I'm sitting like other like interviews of them before. But so in New Zealand is no like is a very very small risk scene. But especially back in is like nothing that. Yeah. It's not. It's not hard was always. No that name motor in the seventies. Like, send your tape and pictures to Steve Ricard, and maybe you can go to these Zealand, right? Yes. There's not much does the much Seattle. And so I used to watch it always younger. I think I started watching two thousand and four perceiving you still there and stuff, and and then I watched it for a few years, and then Cullum Malaysia teen years stop watching kind of grew out of it, then a finish school. And I was waking for friend's dad and a data competition on the radio to send someone to wrestlemainia in this two thousand eleven and I was like oh shit. You know, always wanted to multiple just cool it up. So I caught up and like won a competition to go into the drawer to do. And then two weeks. They got a bunch of people in the jewel ended up winning that competition won that competition. So what's the limits? So it was like a radio thing here thing. Yeah. And you had to cool up and you had to do like, the two coolers and see. Okay. You gotta do debate. They tell you if you're foreign against them to give you a random topic, and you had to do it. And then they decide who the winner of the debate was would go into the draw. The did that multiple times a day for two three weeks. So they go on the radio and like here's the big draw. And so I was being set I was on a building site. And it was kind of like it was like off like a off the road down like a long drive so's lucky to have reception because it was on and off there. But they always in the droid ADM this morning, so okay. Okay. Sit next to the radio with my phone. You hit them dialing the phone on the other end babe in goes, quiet. My phone starts vibrating. No, oh shit shit. Like, hello. And in one of the other guys he knew what was happening and he's like he's just kind of stops. What he's doing his own way getting me. And then they like, Jamie. How's it? Yeah. I was like you're going to resume. Oh shit. Couldn't believe that. Yes. Because I when I used to watch it, obviously, I wanted to be risking their watch it does. But get into that whole mindset of us not really realistic, especially more so been in New Zealand. How ever gonna get? Exactly. Yes. So so then won that competition. You know, flights tickets accommodation painful end to take a friend as well. So it's going to be with me. And what was that? That was in Atlanta saw two thousand eleven Atlanta. So we went there for four five days and did that and it was kind of that that maybe they will shit. I never thought I gotta wrestlemainia Leland winning competitions. What why not why can't white can't? I actually try this try be Orissa needed. I think around that time, and maybe around that like two thousand eleven at least it was kinda changing what you know. Smaller guys were able to kind of get into as opposed to ten years before. So funny saying yourself as a small guy, right? Yeah. I mean, you gotta be six foot three six one yet. But especially the time os LA skinnier as well. So it's been summoned to try put on weight over the years. But yes, so one that trip through semaine in that kind of reinspired may sit in for quick freer saved up money and live. Wincing and kazaa. I had no idea about any independence little like like, I said, it was elaborately news WB at the time. And so I live. My my reason for going England is looking into the states. I was looking at like Lovie w I was like seeing the training things. And I was like, well, it's going to be need to be able to work. So I don't even get a visa, but I like my grand- my Granddad was from the Netherlands. So I got a European possible. Luckily, so I well anyone that goes, you know, I feel like England's like the little brother to the states when it comes to like opportunities and making us I was like all that. Kinda sounds good. But I didn't really have any knowledge about the risk there. Also, I left and went there. I had a friend over this. They with his family on a little island could see which is between England and France for ten months, like a gap you, and then I just really yeah. I just lift it went to to Portsmouth and naming because I found information by wrestling school there and just kind of just packed up. And. Grad school. So the trade. There was a guy called Tom Jones says the kid needed a few trials and stuff. What was funny though is? So revolution pro wakes with new Japan now, and you quote, and they we trained like it was at out the back of like automotive shop, and there was like all these different units. We would in the unit next door to them. And so we would I could go competition if you want because they did shows in the similar areas well trained Nick stores at oversea did that for a year until they booked dividend. So he came over and did show his fro little company that's been Ballard yet about up. So he came over met him, and then he gave me his concert stay in touch. And when he came back to new Japan he'd talked to bed like folly being another Kiwi. He said he'd manichean in England and stuff and he going to touch and then a June two thousand fourteen nakimora folly and David were coming back over to shows rip pro so misses him an Oscar and come up and say hi again. He said, yeah. So mid those guys up there, and from there, I think finally did the work behind the scenes to buy based on. Bella. Yeah. Based on his recommendation to the work behind the scenes, and they go on the dodgers in two thousand fourteen of Niyazi going into dozen fifteen flew out and got my flight came over here and start in the dodger. So that's a lot of stuff. We just touched on. And we'll go back and break some of it down more detail. But before we hear about the DOJ, oh and imbalances role and getting you there, and what it was like for Jay living and training. But before we hear about the new Japan Joe Joe and fin Ballard's role in getting Jay there, and what it was like for him to live and train Japan.

There's a lot of guys from New Zealand now and Austrailia in the DOJ because when you go there, everybody's Japanese a couple of white guy, and like where are you from Australia, and he's in Australia best, there's a lot more guys coming from yet. That's down that's down as as hardware continue trying to get those guys the opportunity, and you know, songs guys with themselves goes, he sees you put on the work. Then you know, there's opportunities there. And I think it's just a great example, those guys that are there now when finally opened his his dough Joe in New Zealand's go to training school there. I think a lot of people kinda thought of ECOMOG no actually going to get the new Japan through it yet this guys in the DOJ now. So it's pretty crazy for like for, you know, riffing big in America in England is it's not an easy. There's a is a really good like the best a chain to get to the Doges is over. I think Tony storms from New Zealand. Yeah. I think she lives is from their straight auto. No, well, but I think she might been born then she might have gone to. She I think. Yeah. I think she was think she might have been born in the UK, but moved to new sandwiches, really young or might have been the other way here in New Zealand wrestling. I was just gonna say there is there's a lot of people that you know, such a small country, and where it's all about rugby rugby. Give rugby that. I didn't care. There's quite a lot of people who are getting out there getting up a chain of these. You know, we go go NADA hair as well. You know? Yeah. Yes. He's from New Zealand as well. Yeah. Yes. So so he's in me following in. You got Chavez bang cyber with he's with me now as well. So and then guys in the UK said that. The Bushwacker were from New Zealand to she purrs old school, boys. But I remember when I was in Germany, there's got called rip Morgan who was from New Zealand do the haka. Oh, you even as that's part of the culture any lake any risk. The from these like there was like all can the hukou. So like when we used to I used to work for Brian Dickson over and over in the UK. And you got your facts you need to wave you flags waving. Yes. It was. Yes. So but they had me at the is the Great Britain flag. Even though I like head like, museums and stuff on my gear. And then he had me come out one day with like who got the New Zealand national like the national flag, and it is one for the Mody people that they have in. It's I don't know how he found that because it's not that's you know, that's not actually L national flag like officially, but he somehow got this this flag and. And he's like, yeah. Yeah. You can come your Maui j white and I'm gonna modo like. Like, a native exactly like the native American or African American. Simone guy. A good way to compare the night of people in New Zealand than you know, usually DACA skin dining, I'm I'm just married. Yeah. And like just with his accent is well like it was like show, whatever you need. Wave this flag for twenty good noise. But yes as a fun time doing that in England. But so explain what the Hawkeye is. Right. Yeah. So it's like a like a war dance know, it's a cultural thing that's done usually. Yes. So it's a motive aunts. And then obviously, it's like a Polynesian thing as well. So, you know, the Pacific on like some tongue you will have their own one. And is a lot of different ones. Those are all so New Zealand, although the schools will have their own one as well. So night before games it'll be done before any kind of sports games. Usually, right. Be oversea with that being the main one. So that's when it's done. So yes. So anytime erasing. They're like that's kind of easy to go to because. That's you know, Aaron does not a he does as well. Because it's a very much. He him being a Modibo. So come natural thing from to go to. Yeah. If you're from New Zealand that if you eat bacon. Exactly. Yeah. Hispania throw salt or whatever exit. What was it like when you first came to Japan? Oh, Madam big culture shock. I had no idea. What I was actually coming over to do. Was when I was talking to fall, and I had little to no looking back, man. I should have really looked into the workings of new Japan. I was more looking like trying to technically risking was. Okay. Trump is good as a cabinet. What I I had no knowledge of kind of the background of the company really hilarity new new that goes like yourself in Idi and stuff had come through because that's really looked up to w e because you guys kind of stuck out above everyone else. And the thing goes had in common is that you'd been through his so I knew that. And then once admit David started watching this stuff more so but like a lot of the. Yeah. The the history so it and some of the older guys, and I don't really have much knowledge of it. So that was a big shock for me journal, obviously linen that stuff. So you didn't know like how much history Japanese, and I had no idea how the DOJ. Oh, works in terms of these young boys that do this for however long in the black like I didn't come over with black trunks and boots. I had to get them done IV because I know I did that I had no idea. No, I I was coming over to be. I didn't know what a young line young. Boy was really. Yes. I really had no information on what I was coming over to do. I might training racing. And we're getting paid I'd idea. So it kinda just came over in. That's really interesting. So I just had to kind of see came over just on his recommendation and very much yet like, and then I remember trying to get some information from folly like before I came over at. But a I didn't want it to come across like, I was questioning it. I just wanted to you know, I had a girlfriend at the time that I was going to be going away for going away from and I had no idea how long that was going to be as well. So trying to get out of the people, and it was like, I know I'm just going to Japan on everything, you know, what I'm going to be doing this. So be like I said, I didn't want it to come across them. Like, I wasn't keen on. So I I'm I came in Japan was for coming FM w and same thing I was twenty and they didn't they didn't give me a visa, and like you don't need a visa to say coming over as a tourist and like now looking back on it like you'll have a visa they'll kick out of the country ten years. One years old I didn't wanna rock the boat or just like you. I'm just going on vacation like it's one look at me like a vacation wear. Where did you have any money? But that's the stuff that you do. While you're goes up, Jimmy. So just go to do it. And, you know book at the book Mein flight as well, which is which is fine enough, Joel. Whereas I I know the guys like, I know a Katie he came when he came at the same time, and I know Finley that came over a few months later than it'd got it sorted for them. But I think that's more the the the influence of AFA Evan on my side. He brought up for the Japanese system, and like very much making sure that you know, I was put on the wig myself and wanting to do that myself and really exactly really making me stuff from the bottom to prove that I wanted to raise some guys might be like, okay. You got your in flight, and they might be like, oh, well, no to know that so. Yeah. So I think that was why really fly yourself over and you land at the airport. Is there somebody that yet? He was actually so Hirata who's in here. Now, he was over here with another guy 'cause they finally got them over to do like, the tryout, and and they were staying for risk kingdom. So I commend it was folly. And then those two Aaron who's he was at the airport as well. So and then took me to the dodge. Oh and walked in and I met Tanakahe Komatsu and showing you with with rookie. And then there was another guy there as well. And they spoke knowing at the time and now they pretty good. But they spoke none of the time and I walked in. And then see the Doug Jones finds like tells them tells them to pay me downstairs and shave my head because so yes at the time I'd like kinda like along like sort of my hope type thing gun and Ohio this long for wrestling kind of fits him with that and get into this. I go shave. So you go straight into full on DOJ. Oh rule. Exactly. As as, you know, exactly. Like a Japanese guy how they come into. And that's and the reason. He did that is because that really kind of cements your spot as she you still do the work along the way, you know, if you do the things Japanese-style, they really treat you as one wanting their own, and it really works out fee, which you know as. Very because. If I was in that position, not knowing actually I would've done the same as you. But now, you think about like shave my head for what like human because you don't know what like you said, you don't exactly I had no idea. I had no idea. Yeah. David like, the the voice Trish in this the other thing she at the time. I think there have been more leaning with the now because I realized this just not productive or efficient. But and the DOJ are they used to have to have the young boys would have to go upstairs to the rooms when the bag is would come into training and stuff because so they would they would cave the young favor. They would face the young boys the ones that hadn't debuted in. There was still training. They would say the most stuff like that. And if they go downstairs, you know, they might get beat up by one of the bad guys. But no one really explained that to us. Because like I said the other young boys didn't speak English. I just knew that for some reason the evening we always had to go upstairs. But then sometimes I'll go down and never fine because they're a little bit more leaning on the phone guys. And like I said I'd been wrestling like, I know this thing has been in two years. Whereas they really do try not they like, you know, they keep them in this bubble. Don't tell it's like old school training. He don't tell them anything. Of shoot training o mat wrestling and stuff and things that I didn't teach them. That's that's where like guys the foreigners that come in. You have that age of already if you've already done it already as well. And that you kind of see the difference in some of the Japanese boys that come up for the DOJ. You can see the difference between the ones that some of them. It's like the go that beat a dog syndrome like they're kind of like almost dissociate in a way of thinking of how they go towards a young boy, it can take them a little while to come out of that. Once they graduate the dodger. Then you get the guys that you can't see a Smuts would think for themselves more as opposed to just being told what to do and often as the guys that get the business bitter and quicker, and they they do a little bit. I think it's something that you know, to explain this to people that don't understand the Japanese culture because it really is. It's a lot like joining the army. Yes. You're you're stripped down buck private here, you go and either you rise above and become a general or you. Stay a grunt very, yes. Very much like that. Like like, I said it was. So actually, I didn't mention that before when I left school. I actually got into the New Zealand nominee to be an officer about I didn't I did like the first like month enough initial training. I lift a that was a familiar as to illustrate school wasn't gonna really wanted to do. And that was just before one that trip to go to wrestlemainia, but C is very much like that. I had no idea of really what you're going to be doing. You know, the shave you hit there as well. So that's that's another similarity had to go through that twice. But yeah. And then so it was very much learning on on on the spot for me. So when in hindsight, and you know, if anyone else listen to this is going to come over to do that, my advice would be to try and research, not just, you know, ten coercing and to that. But the background of how it will wicks there. And I think it's easy to find that information these days some of the guys we're talking about it last night. How how much more accessible? Just to watch new Japan is even back then in two thousand fourteen before he came here are starting to find stuff in you could maybe find some of the big matches on daily motion and super crappy quality but other than that. I was really hard to find someone before that tape trading. Right. Exactly. Yeah. Ever had it and watch it exactly in that is to see just how much that's advanced even since I started. I mean, it's a whole different world. But I remember I wanted to go with the DOJ. Oh, so bad. I just never like how do you like you like you said, how do I go to the Joe Joe Joe for new Japan is it's nuts. How a kind of just in one hand I very lucky and at the same time like I did also put myself in position where there's a possibility for an opportunity. You know, a lot of guys might do stuff. Like, oh oil from going to get booked over can you this wash go? Well, if you don't go there's one hundred inch tons of nothing happening. So now that that's what I that's Bris Fogel. He 'cause he I don't even know if you really sold me wrestle. He does seminar with. Us and then we did a tag match together against some other guys. But it's a new wasn't my wrist thing like ability that would have impressed me. And I know you said it was more like the work ethic. I was doing stuff like the young boys day all the extra jobs, and like run around picked people up during the ring, and this and this and that so it was more the attitude that made them recommend me to them. And then obviously follow being now is it sounds like it would fit in when you've been through the system. I remember I've I haven't thought of the story for years, but when I was started working here in like, I said, no that changed the tenders company with John Gaito coast called war wer. Actually, she was there. But and then they asked me do you want to come to the DOJ? Oh for six months because I was here every month. So instead of flying back and forth. Do you want to live in the DOJ not to shave the habit just live there? And I tracked down Chris Ben Juan called him. I didn't know him just to ask him. 'cause I knew he had trained the Dozo. And that's how we became friends. I was like I was a I'm arrested ago. And I'm just asking. Why should I go to the DOJ Japan? Is it what are you talking about? And then he thought that was really cool, and instead of taking real interest in me, probably the same as David did for you because he knows the system, and if you're willing to go to the DOJ, oh, you're not just some hack. Famous wrestler bills. You. Really, you really risking it really going to be committed to and that was the same for me. When like, you know, the opportunity was coming up at the DOJ is that was more surreal to me than doing like w trout or anything like that. Because it was you know, so prestigious to get into. And like I said the guys that I looked up to like yourself. Ben y Idi that I knew that will come through new Japan. So I was like oh, man. That sounds really don't think. But of course, not going to say no to that. So you do what you can to to get that opportunity. Let's talk about some of the things that you had to do in the DOJ on. I'm guessing that one of them is not winning a million dollars. Okay. But I know how you can win a million dollars. You can do that.

They would like said they would be naturally easier on us like wasn't as much pressure. But I tried to make sure that was no no, I want to do the same jobs as themselves. You know, you do the guys laundry after they will try and latest have loggia bosses checking in there and do that you make the food for the day, the Choco like big pot of soup and meat and stuff and and do that. And then there's always have to be one person. That's always going to be kinda on hand, and he's cool chunk. Oh, boy six he's the guy that looks up to the chunk. Yeah. So, you know, I look like the phone calls or whatever find comes through. Should that was a funny thing one day? There was a it was before it was going to Corcoran. So a lot of the rest of the train, and then they will get on the bus from this. So it was packed everyone. More people than usual there. Everyone's eating and the Japanese young boys had gone out somewhere to like, I think one of the go to the shop to get visuals. And one was on an showering or something and the phone goes like oh. I should know. No cod. Was this has funny point to it as well. As the fine guys. I'm like look at it look over in a car. Just looks at me. I'm kind of like when someone else going. I know how they want me to answer it. I don't know what the Magan understand what they're saying. And sending like gosh just keeps eating and just kind of like gives me that look like it. And so like in Japanese, I Bassi say, Hello, new Japan. Pro wrestling DOJ. Oh, this is Jamie. I don't understand Japanese and the whole room just erupted. You said that. Do you say I think I said hi Shinnyo-en brewers Stojko JD's neon. Go cutting and sit and they they went nuts. Just hope. This was like. I think ended up being tiger Moscow on the phone. So he loves as well. And then like someone came in came and spike or something. So did you ever have to start learning Japanese any they don't really know what there's no one that really pushes it on YouTube much. They kinda advise it, but I tried to. And it's with guys that was really good in the DOJ with showing yots because they would teach me Bisa Japanese, you know, the pick up the English as well they use. You'd obviously you you learn the the bad words say. Was I and yet I exactly why I came the referee said when you when you want some of these say, what's the what's good night in Japanese. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I yeah. You say marisha issued his house. No, come on come out. Kamala Mauricio, h does and you have to sit very shaky like that. That's what you say to people like when you're saying goodnight to them. So I would go on sale. Come or she does and everyone start laughing Marie? She is a famous singer like like, a lounge singer, right? Like a Frank Sinatra or something? So I'd be going up people saying good night. I'm Frank Sinatra and like looking at them, they'd be laughing. So that was their little joke. Right. He like dumb foreign guy that as I got that again. Yo he he was I think he was the main one that told me like would do stuff to me say we're like a like a sponsored in at at somewhere, and it was a lady's birthday. And he said he told me he goes say say happy birthday Kusaba is just like heavy birthday like older lady. But unlike a fun way turns out like Koussa bubbas, basically like an old lady lake. So I'm like heavy birthday Kusaba river a call. But. So I assume realize it was that bad until like later like I come into hell go brought up, and I was with ghetto and his it said somehow, I mentioned it and he's like, hey, don't say that's bad. I was like what is it just like old lady or something? He's like, no that's like going to lady. Yes, they always do that stuff to you. But sponsored dinners quick. That's something. That's very interesting over here. They it's great because you get to oversee experience the food sponsor is explained. What? Right. So they see I I don't even know if I know these days, so sometimes they're the guys that obviously pay for the show's sponsor the shows other times, they're fans that just want to go out and eat with the hang out with. They they'll take you out. Everything's paid for like unlimited food and drink in often, a really nice restaurants that you know, they just want to be around they knew in being karaoke. They just want to have fun time with these risks as difference by. So he's always a lot of drinking in. It's really is like that. That was just as much part of the the DOJ. Oh, you know lifestyle being a young boy as young you kinda con- you can't say no to anything, basically. And so again when I annoyed about any of that stuff and the first one I went out on saw it I commonly drink sock anymore because I had a terrible experience with the first time. I went out on you know, the referee. He he's all you come out to dinner time, some oh, that's nice. Oh, cool. He's taking me out for dinner little he's like his thing is what the new guys coming through. He takes them out in the them up. So I go for dinner, and it was like time. It was him. There was Shibata Goto to Gucci Homa Dorado was here. He's a guy over with w now. Yeah. I know he's over the nose the grandmother leak. Grandma. So everyone's out into social Bata was the the main one that started giving me sucky and at the time. It was just you know, his water was easy. I'm like, okay. Cool Khanna continental guys they keep they just get these drinks down me, take you end up taking whole bunch of chops and stuff, and then 'cause I'm I'm smashed by this point say they started doing it in everybody. Everybody to this day, like if like Goto son, he he says, I remember that I get respect for him. Because he's started telling everyone that Trump. Thanks, at least it works here. But I bet neither. I remember Knicks morning. Wake up to be the bus by seven and I wake up like my final goes off. I have no idea what I'm doing. I mentioned to lock my phone trying to turn the alarm off and go to the bathroom fraud. Some more manage to get my bag together. Go down to the bus, and I get on the bus sit down, and I'm like shit, go off the bus up and the snow giving the bus happens again. Luckily, we're waiting for one more person to come down, and as it's happening gutter again, he's like Jada worry about it. Just go back to your room. And then there was a one of the other buses nine like two and a half house later. He's like I'll tell them you can go net that bus. And so yeah since that day that was the ongoing drug for a couple of months after they try to force sock. You down if everyone who was the main one him in him and Yoshii she actually like anytime, they would get like gifts of bottles of sake. It shows JJ. JJ before match. I'll please the smell of it makes me want to smell it. Yeah. I had that with with dark beer as dark beer because what they would do sometimes is when you were on a tour, you'd get a call at like midnight room at ten rue wants to drink with you. And like, you said can't say, no, I think you probably can't at that stage. But it's very insulting. I young boy couldn't I specially as a young guy get that call from the boss exactly, you know, you don't say, no. And so I I went down to some bar. They took some bar, and it's just me and ten route ten speaks okay English, but he's dark beard. I hate dark beer, and it was trying to drink this dark beard, and I finally finished it, and he's like, oh you finished another and I had to keep going and then at the end of the night like you said the throwing up to this day whenever I smell a dark beer. It's just like oh crossed. Yes. Who is Philip? Everyone's. Like one type alcohol that they get it. What's the bad experience? Right. But yes, that's supposedly. So they, you know, they take you out. And like I said even for the first two years. I'm like is this person like what type of sport because they would use the word sponsor. But then like you said it's out the time. They'd just the fans that just want to take you out and stuff, and then sometimes they kind of friends of the company or the monitoring nameless faceless guy. That's a friend of a guy. That's got a lot of money. Exactly. Yeah. They used to do to is shake your hand. And you have you take a taxi home and have money in their hands would cost, you know, five thousand yen, you they give you fifty thousand. Sometimes they'll just yes, they're just give you money. So this one for such horse. Yeah. Exactly. And then other times they're like they're like organized fan of insi- think certain sponsors of fans will say to like sometimes it's groups like twenty thirty people like, hey after the show, I'm going to have these risks is coming. So everyone pays. And then that's what I was. He goes to shoot and stuff and in so often is being times with there's like five or six there and is five or six tables, and they have one where thirty one, and then you rotate talking to people, but it's all could weigh in. When if you not with any the other English speaking boys air because he's kind of sit there anyone to sit there staring at your table. What it is. And they don't want to speak to you. And they don't really say anything. Join with then then flip side, you have the nights where everyone just gets a whole lot of alcohol down the Macaire Yankee which have already had as well. So in others ones can be pretty fun. Yeah. Those are fun minutes. It's one of those things I'm very appreciate. And that's why still I mean, my first tour I was like I said just turned twenty and forty eight now, and I still love coming to Japan. I got a it's a it's a very strange country in ways, but I really appreciate the the traditions and the respect levels, and those sort of things you don't really get that in in the states and a lot of ROY. Yes, I've been had the experience there like yourself in the state so kind of know for that is over here. But it is great like, especially towards, you know, everyone loves celebrating after the end of like a tour or like a big show. But it is co is kind of like a bonding thing that's for sure. And especially with some of the Japanese guys where you know, when you cyber would have wrestling. They maybe a bit quiet said, you don't really show. And then, you know, once you will go out and stuff, it just you know, how to that's great. Enough. Some of the guys that may be quiet as everyone everyone has a few drinks and comes out of the shallow, but more as well. So everyone communicates better because you try a little harder. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. In addition to go and see just like, oh, okay. You trying to join. Do you speak Japanese now a little bit? I was I was studying it more when I went to our wage when they see me on excursion, I've Mohtarma hands, but Assad to go a little crazy just trying to do it out of a textbook, and from what hit from everyone is so much easier to learn when you actually people to talk to with it. So I kinda got a little bit lazy with it. I think but just bits bits and pieces phrases like enough phrases where like at a, you know, f- responsiveness, I know enough cynicism stuff where can say things to keep him. Happy. Get get a little pop out of the people with us. And then I pick up like they say full into some I pick up on a few words where I can actually my okay. When I was going over the match Naito and know yesterday, they were talking Japanese, and then I, you know, tumblers come back, and I totally understood after they're gonna tell me that I got that you understand. But I sat and dressing rooms for years with you know, the team was me John Ogata's and for Yuki four guys, and we were Essel for Japanese guys. They're seven guys speaking Japanese and one guy that doesn't and they're talking about the match. And then when it's your turn the Bill. Okay. You do something. If you're not falling. If you don't pick it up to not have any chance to do anything. You learn pretty quickly what they're saying. At least the concept. I and they often have different terms for different moves as well and stuff. So sometimes you got to pick up on that stuff as well. Because otherwise, you're going to be you're going to be less than this and the extra resting side of it. It's it's easy because they do use English words at the same time, you she's hand movements half the time for stuff. So it's at makes it a little international exactly remission, the excursion talk about that. Because that's a big part of the young boy. Called. Yeah. So that's that's where it really kind of assure that they treat me as a as a Japanese young boy because that's what they say the Japanese guys away, and it doesn't often happen with the low the foreigners. They sent folly away. I think Tema mardi gone he would to Mexico for a little bit. But it was no they sent me away for you and a half. Whereas which is what they really do with the Japanese boys. You know, sometimes the ROY for two three years, and what they do is when you work in the DOJ. Oh, you worked the opening matches them when they think you're ready to the next level. They send you away enjoy set in you got an experience. I think it's very important for the Japanese guy. So that way they experienced racing. Elsewhere and get that experience. I had a little bit beforehand which helped me, but obviously once I come to new Japan, you know, the different stall they went away again, you you build on even more. So it's one for you to build on stuff. And then also if people don't see for ages, then when you come back, you know, it's not because it would be weird. If I just go from being the first match every night, and then all of a sudden, you just change your country in one night. So it's it helps with that as well. So. Yeah. Went to our wage. They resorted you where did you move to? I I went to a New Jersey because they used to. I've done if you would've seamy sokai, but she so they often seen a lot of the Japanese guys I've to her and her husband, David Iran, New Jersey on started their for their house or something. Yeah. Say their place for a little bit. I stayed there for like three weeks, and I was going because originally living in England I would kinda went back and forth England a little bit both rave pro. And then a couple of times myself because in the gaps between our way, she's quite a big break sometimes side did that. And then eventually when I came back win live with Alex Shelley done in Detroit was he was over in Japan with us at one point to meet him got along. So he invited me to come down. Stay with him. So I ended up living with him from like today's hundred seventeen off from the start of the seventy two towards the end of it and then moved into apartments. So when you go to ring of honor or you call Jay white. Yeah. It is J Weijia. And then that was an do you work like in the opening matches? Or are they giving you push? They're really good to me really gets me. I always see not not to go into much about fans. But like and they're like, oh this person's wasted. His it's like, I'm not they're not going to bring me in for a year. And make me like star champion nothing league. I'm gonna come in and help. And they know deal is your only there in Japan. This people understand like why would they invest the listen to me just for me all that into me just me to go and leave? So another greats me they gave me undefeated for six months, whatever, and they put me a matches with 'cause like older talk Jay Briscoe, Jay lethal. So now, it was great and singles match at the time ballroom against all spray, which everyone enjoyed so great. Yeah. Yeah. He's a echoes a free case just of frigging night show. I never knew he he's he's he's relative. He's probably same height as me. At least six foot, and then he's got like a soda frame, and he's going to bigger recently yet he's still is just like really flipping easier like Nelson. Yeah. Yeah. It's not. So, you know, he's crazy. But someone you're over there. Do you have any idea how long it's going to be or not they often they seem to me like maybe one year and a half to two years. So they say that. But really, it's just you just kind of go to play down wait until the maybe until get it gets an idea to bring you back or whatever. So you could be longer like like, I know Hiromi Takahashi he was away for the better part of three years. I think but then he came back, and he's like one of the biggest biggest maybe faces hit the like the recent MVP. The I think enough is the Tokyo sports, or if was like a new Japan one he's been alpha half the year, but he got sick. And like just behind husky on like the foul on the favorite things. He good, man. That was so awful. Yeah. I've every time. So I was with them in our way Chesley. So like it'll be closer to them. Some of the other guys always say them was like, I know you'll do some crazy stuff. My gave be careful the I've seen him in drag. They had a couple of matches over there. And they did that moving actually heard his Nicot like some. They do it again. And he's like, but he's like every time, I San Jose. Take it easy before that San Fran mesh. I see it as like. He does like, hey, Doug, a crazy tonight be gift for what he's I seriously. It's nice. It's okay. You talked to him now on enough. Yeah. Yeah. Just house. He then. Yeah. I think he's doing everything is doing a K think he's out of the hospital as far as but. Yeah, he says he's he says he's feeling go no idea in terms of recovery time when they want to come back so you so when you're working it's it's interesting to me because your guy from New Zealand who lived in England. But then you go to Japan. Now, you go to America where you're waiting to go back to Japan. Yeah. Like those guys away. Can't wait to go home and your home is not your. Yes, exactly. It was now it's become the states. This is where I was for wall. So he cut his cO comfortable there. But that's thing with New Zealand. You know? It's not easy to get to as well. But yes, I have there for a year and a half. I think I did. Yeah. About a year and a half an in came back late two dozen seventeen to come back for the dome show for last year for so it was the win. They the same night. They they announced you'll video for Kenny was the end of that show. I came back. So that was November two thousand and sin. That was your big returns. That was the return like Tana beats Ebou she and the mentioned that came out and challenge tunnel and then earlier in the night. That's when the video. What they did great. There is because it'd been building up my videos for a while. And then when they they played it said that it was going to happen on that date. They play Joe video. They didn't say about the switch pay. But I think a lot of people's like, oh, maybe maybe that's what that was. I guess I guess that was it because they sit in an author is like a sick. And surprise. I'm not saying that this is the exact way or if it's even that show, but I call something about and like I said, this might be totally wrong. You might be able to tell me more about this at this point in time. They going to do something exactly the same with our respective angles. And at one point it was they were gonna show your video to as like you can't show to videos on the same same show. And they and they had you maybe come into it live. I think that some along those disbars I knew I never go any idea that was given to me I knew I was going to be there in person. Okay. So maybe it was another day. But there was something going on where it's like you're going to this. And then J whites news that we can't do the same. We have to mix. One of the prior shows 'cause they didn't show any teaser for you know, they right, and this they they had they wanted to do it on a night where they had one of my tease videos earlier that might have been wrestling shows under the head something into g one they had one I think than the yoga coup show, the king of pro wrestling when I think they headed against they might be wanting to do it then but. At my point at the same time are things starting yours was starting as well. Yeah. So what was what was the idea behind switchblade? The first one they came up with. He was like sit it was like raise a shop was like first thing in one fifth, straight wells. I don't have anything in the name of razor because it just thinking I feel like people go to raise their among. So what does this point you work? Your work is razor, sharp or. Yeah. He wanted to basis Gaito talking to you. Yeah. You wanted to be, you know, kind of aggressive and cutthroat type thing which is they play with these days Inova say it's kind of like change. But that was kind of the original idea he wanted to be just a really kind of aggressive guy. And you know, guys, I I kinda watch obviously always did what's been wa. But that was like like him and like done white kid that kind of snappy aggressive style was was one of the original ideas. And then it's kind of built on from there. We me and Alex Shelley kind of came up with the name switch played. Instead when we're driving home from that show because it was like a show narrow Bank came overnight the meeting with him, he gave me the idea and then conscious lifted up to ourselves to myself to Jimmy any other ideas that you didn't use. Is just which played overall. I think it was switched by. Because the first one went think, I I was thinking sling blade, and it was all hang on its thing. He's kinda know, and it was like I feel like because we were driving. I think I swear we sit at the same time. I was one hundred sling Besse move an in shape, switch plate. I'm like. Oh, yeah. That actually could work. No one's ever used that as an name before. It's pretty obvious. Right. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. It's as simple. So I think I think seven Callahan might have had something was switched by Nabet. I wasn't like his might be like a group or something years ago because I remember when they was showing the videos people like taken him, and they throw seventy and some people thought it was trim Perata coming back because he'd been out for a little while. All right. So tonight, it will kinda worked out pretty good. But they really did kind of leave it up to myself with look wise. And then what you wanna do from there under stuff to myself. And then it develops naturally wants to come back. That was when it all the more, your hair and stuff the more. You're doing is the more easy coming back with a huge push to work with Tom. Hodgson that joke, of course, a huge opportunity. So and then Kinney straight off through it as well, so eight. Yeah. Yeah. The Knicks night is when they did the book he doesn't the dash, right? Yeah. And I say no give him the move. And then we had the match at the end of the month for his about where they were beat him. So there was everyone was surprised with that one. So. Yeah. And then that's why I say a lot of people everything feels so natural because we really can't say and more or less do what we want to do we want. But you can say what have you want? You know, those backstage commonsense stuff. It's it's up to us. You can swear do whatever. So which is so funny for me because you know, WB everything. So of course, and you know, you can still improv it, but like you say, your comment and just do whatever you want stole a report is dinner yesterday as I'm taking your dinner to walk down. Whatever you want, right. Yeah. Exactly. And that's what I think. That's boy enjoy more as well. Because it's it's, you know, wrestling people love to throw around the word fake Billick. There is a lot more real than people realize. Tim's of just saying whatever I wanna do like people think, oh, he's being told to do this this like, I'm really not. I'm just saying what I want and more or less and pretty much doing exactly what I wanna do in so long as it's not clashing with what the companies. Swears trying to cut back on that. Which those it's not a huge deal. But it's at the same time. We haven't been told I haven't been told. Hey, don't swear. But I just know that it's kind of a thing that's happening. So just kind of come back a little bit Bs today. But also, I understand why they're doing that. But it's not as being to the point at the moment where they're obviously telling people, hey, you can use really hundred percent stop this or something. So how do you feel about the expansion into the States Japan six citing is very exciting time. It's cool that we get to oversee go over there. More and stuff. I know businesses keeps growing like the fans, I think there was the best like they were saying last night was the biggest etc. Wrestle kingdom kingdom. Yeah. I think the old school till you don't shows might have sold more of I think wrestle Kane. And this was the biggest all right? Yeah. That's right. And he was saying I think he said something about like, and Tim like real customers. I think in Tim's. I she like how many tickets way she like sodas the most just people being in Rio ever at. Yeah. I heard him say something like I think that's that's what I took from that. Like as opposed to like, hey, all these people get given tickets for whatever reason they in terms of actually how many people that's what I get from there. And this is after after the show is dying. They've kind of a team meeting locker room. And everyone says if you comment a little business note here and there and the they mentioned the better and the two decades next year. So yeah. So that'd be that'd be really interesting Madison Square Garden show. Oh, it's that's very excited when they when I remember I told about that before all the go to nounce, and then we got hold that. It got shut down by. I think basically from from w go. Go shutdown says, okay? And then few weeks later, I see studying posted again. So that of Asli managed to that, obviously minutes to work around it, and and make it happen. I mean as much to you like wrestling, of course, it does. But did you know of Madison Square Garden is at a worldwide thing on so I didn't know about it until Risley. Gotcha. Yeah. I didn't know anything about it. And so he has such a huge famous arenas. Yeah. But it's I guess it's famous prestigious to me because I think the other stuff because it s can be really that'd be really cool cool thing to do, you know, mania weekend to do that show very excited for it. And after the reception, I got at San Fran and LA show fully New York fans for like eighteen thousand I'm expecting them to just blew the shit out. Yes. San Fran semaine ju- Seta had a singles match those with the Jay, Josh bonnet stuff at all. Gosh. You know? It's funny. I I had juice on here. But I forgot to ask him. Let's talk about that for few minutes because we talked about amongst ourselves. So we had the match, and I remember seeing in everyone like, oh that was that was awesome. That they did that like this. Don't tell what happened. Yeah. So we I have juice. I give them a suplex against the fence. The fence moves hits the table the table slides back, and it's Jay and knocks him out of his chair. And then a real yes, that's real deal about people thinking everything's fake. Like, this was that fell containing any real wasn't trying to j I I just hit the fence table him domino effect, and he fell out of his chair. I know he I think he hit his ribs. It took took a bad full which was never meant to happen at anyway. But so I remember doing that. And I hear the reaction to ruin the move and in about two sickened or like a second later just it was weird. It was like a sick and Ted. So it and everyone was like, oh that was what was that for I kind of turn around. And look I see like, I don't think Josh. It's I don't know if Georgia quite stood up yet. But I see like security in the fans looking down at something. And I kind of really kind of see them like oh shit J. Oh, they must've knocked JR out of his seat. I was like, well, I'm gonna make the most of this since I stand up and glowed in Yellen in Josh just stands up and since start talking shit to him. And he starts coming around the fence. I'm like I'll show you stat at his stay on his reach. So he comes around the fence side get in the ring. And then I figured he was forty is going to stop this. I keep talking shit to him. And he gets his oh shit. I gotta get down and get out get out of the ring gets into the rains into the ring. A new knows who knows China stop him and stuff, and I'm I ended up moving around the ring. He's like in the ring token, and I'm the whole time just thrown Chip Beck at him and an end up gun around the ring, and he caught the comes out again and nuno's. No, no, no. And I'm sorry. I can't get him out here. And then and then as he starts walking off is actually good thing that he didn't he's going to hear it now. But getting that he didn't say actually spat at him because he was going along with everything that I was doing obviously didn't didn't get him enough thing. But I don't think he saw which is probably a probably a good thing. In hindsight. I saw that. I was like I said man, you got poised because I would have flipped out. I know he's an the guys stuff but for him to get in the ring like that. I thought that was the most unprofessional bullshit move ever, do and you don't have to say it. But on on an accident. It's wrestling shit happens. These sound like you wanted to Jaren punched him in the face. You know? And when he came in the ring like, what do you what do you expect to happen? You want to get into in a shoot here. To totally kill the match. Do you stand up? You talked to shoot you talk shit back and you back off because you're a commentator or not in the ring anyways, that was just my opinion. So I thought you handle that really appreciate that. It was like in hindsight it also ended. It was just a huge moment in matches well, which which made lots of heat for you. Of course, you know, again. It was nothing intentionally but it ended up working out like that. And what happened after once they you know, they came back with pissed off. I so I had no idea until even then I fought that was fine. And then the matches done I get back stage and someone comes up to me. I have no idea this this guy from Xs comes up on ninety here. He was at the time. It comes up with a tour in the what the hell was that? What happened? I'm like. And I'm like what you said also about. And like she just finished just go backstage. But what are you what are you talking about? And he said all the stuff John Pistole. I'm like, wait what? I know I like like what do I didn't try? We didn't try those accident is eat legacy. Okay. Like, so then I was I was worried that. Oh, it should it. Didn't actually what he's not. Then tools like well shit. I don't screw up things for excess in new Japan. Italy. This was what the hell's oh will okay? They often show. Okay. Talk to them and stuff. And then he's like, oh, no, no. No. Maybe maybe I'll I'll bring them to you just I think he's right about Josh unlike they'd think he's got like if he wants to if he wants to attack me fun. You can do that. But I don't think they're gonna just randomly. If I go up and talk to them. It's just gonna jump me. So just waited obviously there was still a couple of matches. I think those might have only been one one we'll match the main event, and then they came back and say went and happy, and they kind of just let us have it and stuff and apologize. I had no intention with no attention to do any of this. They haven't for for right thinking or for being professional for for for do it. So it was defective with fern stuff into the fence because there was for each other into the fences. So obviously, you know, the here we flying into the fence. Part of it. And you know, before the show, we go we didn't get told we couldn't. And we we double check that. These are they going to defense is going to be attached reach other. So they won't fly. All right. People are going to be holding them. Yes. And we didn't get told to not get hit into them. You know? Hey, it's just something happens. I've here so we did check that. But in the the earlier in the match me juice by furniture for the fence flying. Well, the other thing that had oh, I think they might have got taken off like their the combs Monte taking off for a bit. When it happened because ROY next it is the the sound of power. Yeah. Yeah. Because ride Knicks and we had no idea, but this, and this is idiotic that it was like this right next to like the table. There was this huge like books, which is based she basically controlling the show going out on. So if that gets up the whole shows goes on. Like, why is that right? Right. Right. Right. And so there was I throw if people go there's one of the ones I throw them in the fence one of them. And again, it's not attached. Like, we go told it was and someone's not holding it one in goes flying up kind of comes down over juice, and then that's right by them. So I think that pissed them off from the start. Why are they doing? This is Rick Lewis, and I kind of see their point of view if that, but at the same, you know, we'd take before we go told us, and we had no idea that that box was right. There were as they knew they knew it was that's why they were probably thinking that. But then as I go to grab him. I see like the league of the Finns is like waged underneath these cables going into this. I see this box. And he's like I was about to grab them fraud off. So I grabbed him and I was like. Hang on a second. I think juicer is also I call like. Out or something like quickly as opposed to just sit there. Yeah. That was when I first saw is once the fence at like flipped up. I was like what is this does it? Yeah. Probably don't wanna pull that league. I just in case grabs that. But so I think that was you know, that's why they were pissed off as that was the other big reason. And then oversee once we came back a little bit later into the super against the fence and oversee individually knocked him out of this chair that oversee topped it off as well. So told us about how is you know, stupid to be doing that at the by the tee box idea, we go we check the defense would be attached. It'd be holding them we, you know. Way understand that say from them from the end there were I think they were the happy that we came and went and talk them as well. Because it isn't that like we had no ill intent. So it says fine him with the dinner every didn't couple drink Susil smoothed over. But yeah, my my main worry consent off of that was just as I go shit hybrid and miss up freezing with excess spend we'd like you said we're trying to expand into the states and his meaning pissing on Jay. He's a legitimate bringing them in for the country and stuff. Of course, that's what he's going to get. I think he's also he's headed we're guys. We'll try to do stuff with him because he's Jay us. They try to get like a bit of heat from him. And again, I so I think he naturally felt that I was maybe doing that was a really no a no intent to involve you guys in any way whatsoever. All right last couple questions when you're talking about the states stuff. I mean, obviously, new Japan's your home. Do you ever think about working going to WB? It was the way. So before newsprint that was like always I think for anyone watching it. It's what you look look too because that's your that's what you watch. But in once you realize is so much more out there. It's really not even a thought my radar like maybe am. And it's also what they what they do the product and stuff isn't, you know, enjoy progressing same as opposed to the entertainment TV stuff over there as well. And you do have a lot of you know, the guys that lift and gone over here by the got the guys that, you know, people a lotta people unhappy there, it's a very very different. So you haven't here. Exactly. Yes. I like, you know, who knows you know, in, you know, you never say never with anything. No one even knows what's gonna happen in the future. I never thought that I would have when I was training. I wanted to go to the bit never would have thought I come here. And look the the world is changing to or before the end game is always WBZ all of us. Now with WB and new Japan and revanche, and if you're talking about all eat elite now impact there's five or six worldwide companies where you can go and make it talk. Exactly like, this was just going to say, you know, with these ghost on the new company than a w stuff. It just makes a demo smoke citing. And it's more options for everybody. So it's a it's a very cool time. We don't need to go there. New Japan keeps grinding obviously with your self. Someone of your caliber coming out hit helps it helps us out here as well to make it even bigger. So then. Yeah, it's it's easy for guys to stay here without having to examine else. Whereas, oh, and and also like people off the NAS, and they get the guys that go there though, every now and then they'll miss the, hey, if you wanna come and just let me know. And then I'm like, I'm right? Thanks, go. I don't want to you know, seventy guys sign early. And then they stay down. And the the development o in exterior would have a full for however long just as the so many people there feels like these days. Looking the same style to like this. The thing about coming here or England all these places is you're not just getting just getting life experience bringing experience but learning different ways to get over in different styles of work at all that makes you a better more valuable performer, the guys that have been overhead tend to do a little bit. If they do end up going as well, that's that's how that always always wicks out. So like any other like vs on Indies and stuff like who? I'm gonna go there like s Cohen this issue. Like a big name. You just going to be there? Nothing. I feel so you you charge is because you can't come out to places like this. And instead, but yeah. And also been how they brought me up for the DOJ. Oh, and the in Japanese stalling I'm very loyal to them. The fact that they gave me that in the gave me excursion the re gave me these changes these new Japan. Yeah. Exactly. So. Yeah. As like as far as I'm here, and that's kind of last question. And that's kind of last question for what's your favorite match. You've ever had. Famous of head for different ones for different reasons. Like if it's going to fan reception and stuff or fit small like what's like won't personally. Yes. I like the Osprey one of our awaits. That was probably at the time that was like a standout, and like made a lot of other people they ever knew your spray was not so much myself symptoms of fan reception. That was that was right up there. And that was one of the first ones like that. Then also David Findlay, actually, one of my favorite probably be against Finley at a car. Can we might have ended? So when I the US bell, we had we had a match tomato Corcoran. So that was that was really cool from any of the DOJ together. An opening Corcoran singles matches as young boys together. That's cool. So that was a very special on and in a no, so the one with juice at San Franco's again, we were in the dugout together. Yeah, he's in. And then we have that again that match a San Fran which I don't think it did a lot better than it should have in terms of. I think it was the fans felt that as well. We managed to build it up pretty good. And then we we get over there. And it kinda, you know, the reception to two of us was was more than I expected to be honest. So that was that was another big one there as well. So I think those two just from the background of it as well the story behind. Yeah. Yeah. I guess if there's one more would be back juvenile guy Agyei bra RJ brewer, I used to wrestle something else is in our wage back in the day. I think but he's he's buddies with my rookie mirror and stuff say we did the first New Zealand show in two thousand sixteen and the reason I say this was because as fist time my family got to see me say that with new Japan it was organized by folly. But it wasn't you. Yes. Japan Gaza our away skies, and it was in a building in New Zealand where I used to work at as bossed off at concerts, and my old boss was his offense. Also came to see me. So that was a cool one. Ed, my family there being in in building. So that was that was an Colin as well. Last night with Okada. Awesome. Matt probably got to do this, dude. Yeah. Me too. Yeah. Yeah. Thank you for having me on. All right. Thanks to the switchblade. Jay white. I'm glad we get to sit down and talk for left Japan after recipe and thirteen looking forward to see what's coming up next for him and thinking really big mash after he's probably gonna challenge for the heavyweight championship. Very soon currently held by by Tana Ohashi. I would like to challenge for the items you'd be heavily championship as well. Hopefully, I'll tell you what can we really soon.

The Wrestling on a Corner for 2 Nights with a Tranquilo Champ-Champ Episode

"What up everybody? Welcome to another episode Soda. The corner podcast Kell. Dan's be here with the old man. entrees hell and it is time for wrestling show wrapping up the week given you everything that happened at wrestle kingdom raw. Aws Annex T. It is a show packed full of pro roll wrestling. So we're GONNA get straight into it old man. How are you feeling so far today? and Are you ready. Recap Wrestle Kingdom. They're man a radio. What about you you sound tired right? Yeah man a running around try not to take up too much of our podcast cast time but I had to go get a rental so I can drive down. Atlantic City and the rental spot is not close. So it's up by the airport and it took me like thirty minutes to get up there thirty five and thirty five to come back. So that was kind of an unnecessary unnecessary trip for me today. And then I was rushing to come back. 'cause I had stuff to do to post so I'm Kinda really just like scrambling so it's nice to sit down and finally talk some wrestling and I could breathe for a second second. The good part is though I went up there and they gave me like an limited upgrade. So I chose two door Coupe Mustang. So I'll be doing like a hundred down Alantic city tomorrow. Well that sounds fun should enjoy. Yeah can't be too bad manned A.. And Espn they treat you right when you can just get whatever rental car you want. There were like eight. Do you want this. Nissan Rogue. Get that out of here. Give me some sporty and the dash is crazy so that should be enjoyable men but it was a it was a crazy day for me today. A lot of work your company giving me a lot of work. WHO THROWS A randomize press conference for Jake and Logan poll when the fights like at the end of the month? So I've been stacked with work because of that. Well I do that so none of my concern. I have to worry about when I when I go to Miami and a couple of weeks I suppose. Today I was actually supposed to be on shoot with a j of the cat. The Cat Jake. Paul is fighting Titan and Youtube is being youtubers they just don't give a shit so they can give me a time to come down and shoot with them so that I know the zone. We're doing the forty forty days with them so they're going to go with them me. I'm not sitting here. I'm not doing any of that shit. I'm not chasing around. Youtubers are worried about that during Super Bowl Week. which is I don't even know how get through that I got you to fight? We got the Andrey fight we got seven former in Joe Dias and then we got the Damn Super Super Bowl. That's going to be crazy so I'm trying to relax while I can't now you do other run into round Gold Atlantic city. I'm chilling are you you enjoying and Mike going to partake in the super bowl activities in Miami or you're going to be an old man. Just chilling hotel. I plead the fifth fair enough fair of alleged dive straight into wrestle kingdom because we have a lot to talk about nine one end my two were stacked. I wanted to start off with night one specifically because to me night one standalone was probably I believe the best pay per view. I've seen all year and this is including a w pay per views and expertise if we go calendar year between last wrestle kingdom and now this one was by far the best it might be one of the best reviews. I've seen shit since mid-2000s early two thousand and it was hard to top this top to back front to back because every match told the store. Yeah it was fun man. I mean we know it's expandable recipe and who comes around and for those of us who have been following us we've been you know preaching the end Japan story forever. So hopefully you guys finally caught the wave and realize I keep saying it's the best restaurant in the world is a new Japan. Like I love X T. I Love Awa Wichita about later and you know I still watch. W. W. Ray Avante. They've been in the shits but they had their run. Nothing's been better than new Japan pro wrestling so this particular night night one even the mix tags were cool but then when it ramped up towards an and that's what recipe does better than anybody else eight kind of set that you up for like the big matches down the stretch but no matches incredibly wack. There's a few things that I was like like. The Grill is destiny. Juice and David Finley match ax was whatever but I mean there's never really a bad match even Houston Thunder. That's kicked off the show. That was a fun match. They just do it right exactly and that was something. They usually get wrestle kingdoms. You don't get that like I smashed the night payoff usually. It's a bunch of guys who aren't scheduled on the card. You throw them into an eight man tag one guy actually mad or is he gets. It's a pain Hurrah Hurrah. That'll carry him to an historian line into the rest of the year. But this one was the sendoff you knew ligers Burger. They let him get his spots in. He's still looked like he can go like it's one of those things where you're like you really have to retire so so Especially after we watched Awa this week which will get into parade of old men. I think jusin thunder lighter could stick around for for a while. If that's the other people being paraded on television but I thought that Matt on night one was handled. Well and then I even enjoy the Suzuki Goon match where I didn't really C.. J. Losing but surprise surprise they did. Yeah I mean I mean yeah. You're right everything story so it was like each match had something to do. Something and using new Japan is notorious having a bunch of like eight man tag matches touches and stuff like that but using they're working towards something even when when you're watching g one it's like well Tallahassee and Sonata Wrestling Tomorrow. So the both of them be part of this makes tag. So we're going to see you. Pick the pinfall Blah Blah Blah. These were still entertaining. So yeah like Suzuki. Goon I mean. We got the big payoff on night too because everybody including myself was pissing nor Suzuki didn't have a singles match and then we found out. Why BERTA man again? It was just just anybody who has watched the Do yourself a favor notice spectrum of people that fight because I love them and they give me a free pass. Watch everything. But Sanford's Pan rose ten bucks a month and you could watch wrestle kingdom for ten bucks. Why why are you doing this? You spending like I get it. You know what I'm saying like you spend your ten dollars or twelve. Whatever the Fuck Tuck it is to get to the network but if you love wrestling why don't you ever knew Japan this need to watch? This show is mandatory watching. I can't call you a person fan if you don't watch this period. Yeah I'm pretty sure I pay like seven ninety nine for mind with semantics. It is worth the price and I got my money. My money's worth on this one. So after Suzuki and minority Suzuki who will talk about here in the second Kim we also had chaos versus bullet club a match. I didn't see bullet club Losey but here. I feel like all mar predictions were shit this past weekend. Everything we said last week on this show. It all went out the window because they did twist and turn setup setup stuff on night one for night to perfectly. I feel why the pacing are night. One was just constantly going constantly going and then all night. The two you saw that some people had ailments. It was slower methodical and it was perfect because it kept that story mind. People weren't fresh. You weren't going to get the crazy spot got night one. Your weren't GonNa get fifty minute matches. These guys were giving it their last night too and that continuity was perfect but this chaos matched we see each year was in it Goto. I'm surprised that they won. And and another thing with this. I've never going to be a fan of Yano. I get it but he had some funny spots at this usually usually. It's Super Corny. This one was like alright I get again. He's the comedic music characteristic so again you know him. Relatives of the coral taken off the thing it's like it's like Han mo who. We don't see a lot of anymore. We're trying to nail their head but it just becomes comedy because it just never happens when he does be pat for it because you had to work for their head but you missed it like thirty seven times you file land one another batch man. I'm I'm just waiting to get to the meat potatoes. This we're going through the matches. They were fine but yo- again when this joint picked up. I mean what which matches next looking at the match rundown I'm like go to gyms versus guerrillas destiny y'all first of all juices facial hair and his haircut the crazy Horrible right now. The whole aesthetic doesn't work. What is his gimmick get? I'm not a Jew Sky for for a second. You liked him when he left annex t when he first got to New Japan. You're like yo no. This is pretty good. I like what they're redoing with juice Robinson or whatever what the hell his name was before this and he has a cool finisher name like okay outside of that. I can't I can't get with it now. I think juices doing much better than when he was A. CJ PARKING ANNEX T. I'm enjoying the juice character more now but lately I haven't cared as much the US title-winning. I didn't care about the future. Jay White was good but this has left a lot to be desired. Man Him Dude Finlay as we talked about last tweet like the TAG team division. Kinda stinks the heavyweight take division New Japan is expect except now which will talk about. Is that it clearly going with CODA bushy in Tallahassee as a tag team we again this marriage I didn't see grills destiny. Losing they ended up taking the PIN and which ended up being pretty good nice like the final? Five minutes of the match was pretty good but out year juice. I don't think he's terrible. I think he's better than he wasn't annex team. But it's just some goofy shit man and it's hard for me to buy into the juice David findlay tag team as being something. I should be scared of. They don't seem like a big threat but getting snow there. Now take champions. They win which make no sense to me but there was a stat. Commentary gave out rose like six of the past seven years the tag titles have changed hands and the winner of the tag tournament. Wins it every time so whatever. That's fine with me. This has to happen. I just don't know what's next. Are they a permanent tag team when the guy goes in challenges for a title next night and he wins this belt which completely let this as the air sales the next night for me because I knew what was going to happen. He's going to be a champion. No so I didn't understand the booking for this match and I'm just not with finishes so that's obviously not where the paper picked up. I would say this problem my lease fever match the night. That's where you know what I'm not going to see like when they won. It made me wonder because I mean we talked about last week is what are they doing with Moxley. Maxi's not losing arch traffic. He'd winning but I was like well. What does this me because as soon as juice? When I kind of said the same thing I was thinking actually has to win but then in the back of your hands like canny? 'cause you know he's he w what is he going to defend this. US title we found out later. Why but I wasn't too sure? Yeah I was thinking that was like there's no way to be double champion but then you never know. And they don't really treat it. They haven't really treated the. US title like a major title And it feels like it's better and mocks hand is and juice but we'll see we'll see that's very true next up was Jon Moxley versus Lance Archer. It was nice to see moxley coming out in the jeans instead of the the low young line. Kinda trunks Yeah those are horrible so he went back to the genes it was a street fight or Texas exit death match no pinfall. You had to win by ten count. Ills fourteen minutes of of to me. Maybe my actually -tations were too high. I didn't know what Moxie would pull out. But it's not even the death match he just ran and and what a w he had a better one. I think it was on a w dark than this one. I thought this match with Archer fell short. Yeah could have been better. Arches had a pretty good run after especially after. Ge Wound surprised a lot of us and you kind of expected death Matsch will be little little more physical maybe a little bit more almost higher spots but it never feel like it. Peaked wasn't a again not a bad match. It just wasn't imagine live up to the expectations expectations. And you want more democracy in this match you wanted more of Archer and the finish was cool. I mean you know the DVD every clearly busted arch open been new Japan tables on them. She's made of but dues get hurt on those tables but the match yourself was cool it just you know it. Put us in a position to have the democracy juice rematch because Mossy never lost the title to begin with. He just couldn't make a flight so we're working towards something but the match itself we'll serviceable. It wasn't like he didn't blow the doors off anything and then to follow. That is where business picks up. So we have a Rommel coming back versus will spray I w GP junior heavyweight championship championship. And this match played out how we thought it would at least the ending it. So Takahashi comes he wins the the belt. He's now the champion can then we'll ask rate. Looks like a million box during this match some of the spots he did. Were just incredible but you know it's kind of like okay. It's time for me to go. I have bigger and better things. I'm going up to the heavyweight division. The junior heavyweight division is in better your hand and it's time for Takahashi to carry this this belt and carry this division. which was fantastic again? This was this at this point where we saw this. I would I mean listen. I was like we gotta match the candidate already because they tore the house down. The finish was fantastic. Let's ask some of the you know the bumps that they took I mean again. I said last week somebody said ASPREY was garbage on twitter and let let us say anything on twitter. Because there's no way the asper garbage like you watch how he is evolved from actually watch some older because remember but he was an Ara waits for a hot second and one of the first times. I saw a spray was in. PWG when me and Marcus went to Bola Maybe I. Five years ago I saw skirl live and I think I saw Osprey and I spray was really just the flippy guy. Now he's like terribly nuance snake. He bumps well. He sells well. He knows when a match is peaking inherent Takahashi just got fantastic chemistry. So this match was just yes. It was everything I expected to be. And then seeing is you get the title back was phenomenal. Especially you know where he was a little over almost two years ago. Taken in a bump from Dragon Leeann you know a lot of people. He may never wrestle again and he just he tore he tore it up. Those two guys tore up so for me Watson Watson match twice the funny actually a couple of these matches twice. I never really do that. But House exists dollars. Four point seven five because these two kilty from that point I was like Yo this is about to be fantastic another wrestling. I think it's easily a five star match like in the moment women I thought like Oh this is the match of the night. I don't know how anything tops this long behold new Japan proves me wrong but that doesn't mean either by opinion of this match changes. I think it was a five star match when I watched it. I was crazy into it and I think I tweeted Auction House L.. They're going to give me a heart attack and I still got two more matches to go some of the spots a guy coming back from a neck injury. I'm just like Oh you probably shouldn't do this. But they did. And it worked out perfectly and then now we see again will we'll ask for it just doesn't have bad matches. He's the opposite of garbage. Whatever that is? He's a tragic he's he's he's dressed. which actually before we go on the next can we talk about because PWS name am Cole the rest of the year and that yes they have and I'm not gonNA say suppresses Adam go ahead of a phenomenal year? I just don't think it was better than sprays and I think we discussed this last week before and I made it very clear. My rationale behind that he does this with everyone like he's made a habit out of making great matches with everyone and I'm not saying coal doesn't have great great matches with Kohl's great matches with Gargano any side really really good matches but the fact that offspring arguably five-star Max's with Okada and Shingo in the same calendar year. I don't see man. I just don't see how anybody was better than aspirin last year. That's just my opinion. I'm I'm not. I don't think it was like a robbery or anything like that. You know everybody has their own taste. Cole was tremendous. And if you put the entire pack together we undisputed era the story that was being told just the interest and everything else. Yeah I could see the we're just talking about a guy and wrestled in elevators game to an entirely different level again those well aspirin and Osprey might not have had those you know. Top of the card feuds stories but he did a lot of his work in the tournaments so going through a tournament ornament is a story in itself and he was able to do that this year. And I agree I like I said on the show last time Osprey eight to me is the number one of the year but I made a case for Adam Cole so I can see why they gave it to him and I think Adam Cole probably locked it up. During that survivor series push him versus Daniel Bryan and actually it was crazy. Yeah I mean it. And that's where he showed like I can work with people who aren't going on. I can do this that that was kind of necessary. Because if he didn't have what happened with survivor series and wargames Daniel Bryan A. And who else did he wrestled on. smackdown wrestlers somebody else can't remember who was on raw raw. Maybe wherever was he kind of proved his value. That he wasn't just it's like an inex- guy the guy can go and I again. I'm not mad at. I just like I watched the Osbournes single-match again and I was like dude. This is like the match hands down. I think he wrestles Seth Rollins by the way was so. It's for a guy who like for a minute. There was a time Adam Cole polls showed up on an xt. And I was wondering like what are you gonNA give titles. It felt like forever to put the title on them and it really didn't but then he he has this this two thousand thousand nineteen where he says turning in these ridiculous matches and again not a but the upside on will sprays I just. I don't see this this guy just continues to get better by between like the blade. Runner vest looks vicious like it. Looks like we cracks you that running backhand back elbow it looks. It looks just savage and then breakthroughs of the storm. Breakage is a great finish and then you still. We'll have the flippy shoot now. You still have the Oscar. Yo there that sequence with the tow pay into the German in the NAS pretty flips lands on his feet veep and then runs at Takahashi Takahashi throws him between the ropes on ability to belly. You that that sequence. The margin of error was so small all because all it took was an inch and would have been caught in the ropes and he flew right through. The rose rolled up on his feet and then another topa back to the outside of the top Bro. It's one of the most amazing sequences I've seen in pro wrestling period because the precision was ridiculous athletics would was ridiculous and he just kind of nailed. It like seamlessly knows a gift doesn't do it. Justice yeah the. The gift was all over twitter. It does even do adjusts his from. I'm watching it live and how fast they were going and I saw people shit on that on that sequence on that spot like Oh look how look how script it is and this isn't wrestling. That's not real. Oh He's going to sit there and wait for him. I was like you guys just hate everything I was like. That's just give up that that point I went full full. He'll bring on all the flippy Shit like I wanna see the crazy. WE'LL AAS rate stuff from heaven. Dad It was him and ricocheting a couple of years ago that was clearly scripted. I don't care make that this spot was actually super dope. Oh 'cause there was a bunch of reversals. It wasn't just for the sake of doing flippy. Shit it made sense within the match and again people judged off in such a small box so they see the gift and they're like Oh okay. Did you watch the match did you see her. Amou- hitting him with with crazy German suplexes before then and then teasing it to a German on the ramp like there are so many little things. If for a second I thought he was going to land the German and crack will ospreys whole shit against the brick so he went belly to belly. I met I thought it it was gonNA take the belly your belly and flip into neighboring. which would have been crazy and then he went through ropes and old? What's going on here? Boom I get my pay off. So it's people don't under to stand unless they watched entire met and there was so much more they flip shit. It was a great twenty five minutes. It was just like thinking about the sequences. It gives me chills because it's just like man it's like I know people say autism for like listen guys we know the wrestling scripted. Like stupid people say this. You know Russel's fake right. No Oh shit dumb ass like I didn't ask you. I know movies fake too but I enjoy that shit but when you see a sequence like that. It's kind of like floor exercises in gymnastics when you're watching. The margin of error is so small. Because you know you're gonNA crack your head if you can't finish that flip and you've got two guys doing violent ballet and you know no you gotta Guy Throwing and got through the middle. Ropes operate is like five hand. I think something like that. And the Martin like the space between those ropes is tiny like if his foot got caught in that role. I could have been terrible or we flip the wrong way but no he landed a clean goes through the ropes. And then does another toby's just that matches it's sorta standard like all right cool. Two Thousand Twenty. This is what you're going to be chasing again. 'cause feels like he's about to have another crazy year. Oh definitely and I'm writing this down as we speak because I think you just gave me a great idea with violent belly I I feel like we. We can make a really good shirt with that all right. It is in the notes so if you guys see your shirt at wrestling with stereotypes violent belly Asia you know where it came from the old man through how to Jim Right there. The Coleman event after that Naito versus Jay White this is where we start getting into the Intercontinental Championship heavyweight championship. In setting up night to NATO comes out and to me this was a very different match. Goes both dwell asprey match and the main event Naito in that knee injury played a huge factor. J White since Naito was injured. Injured was really able to play up the he'll roll during this match. They had several shenanigans. We get trying to get involved of the rest took bumps left and right. The REF was selling his ass off by the way. Can we get a crap for the House I was like Oh wrath. The REV went went to the Dojo and prepared for this bachelor like six weeks because he was taking one hell of a bomb and then by the time you know just the finishers. They weren't overdone but a good three finishers in j white hat on several times. Jay Whites pulling out new moves that you've never seen before so it was just total package. That Win Naito finally one it was like just an exile moment like shit. All right he did it. Stuff is still setup and talking about not being one hundred percent it gave you the feeling. He wasn't at fifty for night to and it was. It's just an uphill battle and it was great it will beautiful storytelling. Yeah and this was a match that I didn't think was on the tier of the asprey Takahashi gauzy match or the Okada Bucci match. But I thought it said everything up very well for the following night and it was an enjoyable. There was some people like yours. Mesh wasn't that good and I'm like what smash great storytelling. It wasn't what you just saw the mashed before but it was a really good match and Naito sowing the L.. The leg injury which is something. Listen when guys sell injuries in matches and it prevents them do moves like when he tried to do the Dt off the ropes and he. Mr Roka's gave out on him when he tried to do Destino and he couldn't nail it. I enjoy that kind of storytelling. The flip side of that which you talk about eighty w dustin roads injury in the first half of that tag match against Luce Bros and then he just was like fucking. My leg is fine midway and it took me so much out of the match I was like. Oh they will work in this league and they completely abandoned. And I'll say this I can't I can't do Max Beck. It's frustrating to me. They made me a believer like this. Injury is tough to deal idea win and night so is working through the injury and he's trying to get feeling back in his legs and he's hobbling when he redoes a big move have an Adrenalin spot. The he'll go back down to have canvas grabbing his leg. Just great storytelling. And I say it again j white. I don't know if I can call him the most improved wrestler. Because I just wasn't Ajay Fan. When he first showed up like I love the character? I think mentioned this when he first showed up. I was like this which way characters great but I don't know Jay Weixin carry it. It'd be the like the new leader of the bully club but fast forward now after his title run what he did in g one and the what he did on this and the following night against the Bucci guys like he's a guy and he's a he'll but he's learn how to fix that role and have with good matches. Jay White is not. He's not bad eh. He's actually really GAITO. Ghetto hoped. Tung Gedo has helped him the tongue. I agree with that one hundred percent but I think they've leaned into this role he's just a piece of shit and he's GonNa Cheat every match and I'm I'm for it because he's still has good matches but he's like y'all when it gets tough you comes. GAITO distracted the referee. Doing something here goes white right trying to do something and I do. Enjoy the setup for the finish area. I like the way he sets it up like I just think Jay wide is kind of coming to his own. He's he's never going to be ten Kenny Omega. And that's a lot of us would like do. You can't take Kenya Omega Spa Bullet Club. But he's managed to figure how to Bejing White and I enjoy. Yeah I agree. The only thing I dislike about Jay white is stupid facial hair. He has the worst. He'll beard in the history of he'll beards. Haired Jet Black and your beard is a Rusty Auburn and then thin patchy. It's so spiky. It's the worst the worst. He'll beard ever yes. I I think what point I said. The the main event was as good as j white beard is bad. It's like the ultimate. Sat questions that. That is how I felt about it. That beard is hunky horrendous. It is a negative ten star beard. That's how bad everything else though I like it. And you know what maybe the shitty beard makes him more just vile character to be maybe makes them a better. He'll so I believe audit fuck it. The he the he'll beard we worked up day. Why is so good? I knew he was good though when he might be a great guy in real life. Like you might just be a nice this guy but I don't even look at him that way. I get lost in the moment sometimes and really think he's a piece of shit. I forget that it's a gimmick like it's just that that natural now that I just think he's an asshole and he'd probably a great human being but there's just something that beard Combo the promos he cuts are just so asshole it's now he found his niche. He really hit his grew. But now I think it's going to be weird because some guys are such good views like everyone has turned back and forth. I don't know how he plays. A baby. Face kicked him out of bullet club and now cancel runs with the club. And now he's out. Now you gotta be a baby. It's just I don't know it's like self rollins me. Seth is so dry as a baby fees as a heel all right. We got some promise there. Dwight still better. I would think overall but I dunno seth sevens away better. He'll tell you that much so with Jay wait. I wonder if he falls into that trap. Maybe he's good at both the cutest young. He's like twenty six right like something stupid like we saw him in in our wings and he was a baby face. And you know it wasn't really much to like guys do allow their best work on the hill so in the case of g wait. He's just become this really good. He'll character and yeah and it works. I don't ever really turn a baby face. And maybe he'll just be a dick forever so you know we don't know but I just easy in Japan because yeah you always always is being guys eating your fun Americans straight up exactly. Why very easy yes? Good Eddie's he's Australia's very fucking Oh likes very fun of white people. Lean the J.. Y You know I'm saying I'm a fan I just love. That's the reason no Americans like. He's Australian fucking who cares suburg what the Beatty Vet Okada Versatile Bucci. There's points in matches. It sounds weird but Bucci. I WANNA say Bucci Shawn Michaels Kerr any yeah. Those three point in their matches and this is incredible company for him. I mean this is like the highest of honors honors. where I don't care if they get any oftens in at all midway through this match I just WanNa see Okada beat the shit out of Bush? 'cause he's so good at selling so that's his tout. It looks like he dies on every Larry on every he is so good at selling these moves that is incredible the back and forth hitting each all of that is so ooh realistic. The guy wrestled a dummy us taking bumps from an inanimate object and it looked like the object was literally going to kill it. He is just that good at what he does. One thing I while watching it was like I don't know if code blue. She is the best wrestler in the world but he is the most natural wrestler in the world. Everything he does is easy. There's nothing being difficult in the ring for. Kota Bush that German suplex off the middle rope like you know just dead lifting upon. That's still amazes me. Every time he hits it just looks incredible and he does it with ease. He is just naturally flawless as a wrestler. Here's he is my wrestling version of Kendrick Lamar where he goes. I don't know if he's the best rapper. Ever or the best rapper right now but that pitches easy for him everything easily playing a game. He'll built for this and that's how I feel about quarter. Yeah this match I mean listen you kind of going going back like watching this match. There's two things I was thinking. One It's Kinda furthest claimed like Okada's one of the best big match wrestlers. We've ever seen this guy like he those when to turn heel which he kind of does night to he knows when to turn it up. He's got to move so that we know we know the rainmaker. He's you got different variations of it. It's a man made a close on a drop kick fucking entertaining Okada's an amazing talent Koto Bucci. Here's the thing because obviously you know Qatar goes over on Bouche Helluva match nothing there's a spot where like Busey like falls on his hair trying to pay kick it just kind of POPs back up and get right back back into it's like I'm watching these to go and I saw some people say Oguchi losses the job now. We talked about this last week. There was there was a story to tell nights when Okada that he knew the finish up from two years ago. So people that were said about Kotobuki losing you miss the big picture Shahir. I'd have been upset of laws and then Okada be nights without have been different story. which will talk about a minute? But they'll working towards something. There's also I think I think there's something in play with Kota Bucci based on this match based on killer a Bucci the murderer which we we starting to see more and more of his Max's Max's go on where he just goes into this dark zone where he's like he has a gaze. That's looks like he's going to kill you and I think we're GONNA see more and more of that but I I've said this before we got kind of trust Ito's booking. It wasn't a boo. She's time this is really about this. WAS NATO show. A busey's time is coming and windy any combs. I think he's going to be the rest of the year because like you said everything he does is so easy and flawless and he's built. He's a wrestler's wrestler caller and then some great storyteller fantastic athlete. He does everything right. The facial keep going back facial expressions when the man's eyes go dead who knows fucking trouble and they just killing each other and he does this again. He does with Jay White. There's a sequence in the J. White match is a Gif of his somewhere where he is like he smirks oops before he crushes on. And it's like you know completely gets it. It's not it wasn't this time. This wasn't wrestle. Kingdom wasn't about Kota Bucci but was certain pieces of motion for win is going to be coded time which maybe next year the year after he's going to be the best in the world in everybody's GonNa why what's photo booths and it'll it'll be well earned. This wasn't it. Wasn't that moment him. Losing his fine people say he was a job like dom as he wants. One Who fucked Lucy ones is Jabber my argument all G one. The only new like if you've watched enough new Japan like I have the only Japan guy who never fulfilled the prophecy of being great and was close was a rookie. Go to go to one G. One seemed like he was on the cusp of great things. And now he's been middling link he's like the thirty thousand time never will open weight champion like he wins Shit every day. Got There and wrestle kingdom. That's goes become and everybody thought for a hot second he was going to be the next big thing abortions not that Busey just signed his long-term deal so they don't have to put the title on them immediately. He'll be here for a while. And this unfinished business when NATO so I'm sure now there's unfinished business coat with Okada. The man is going to get here in the US would about when he wrestled Nakimora in the five star match. He's overdue nights was overdue for anybody was overdue for his moment. It was excellent Ito. Not Tabuchi but this was a bushy. Wasn't even exclusive inclusive right like he wasn't exclusive in that match so they weren't GonNa put you know the rocket on his back when he could go wherever you want right so you know you gotTa let things play play out in a lot of people want instant gratification. Sometimes in the case of a lot of wrestlers put along too soon the fiend and the and once you have the titles will now would they could use a cottage. What he's done better than most is? He's been a big match wrestler wrestler as the champion for like over a half of the decade. And you still like you want to see what he's wrestling next. But he's carried that title will and and it's hard for a lot of guys to be champing once reached a peak within some guys. You get bored late. Seth rollins is a perfect example as soon as he won. The title was like all right now and I'm not saying he's not championship material. But it just doesn't feel like you don't get the feeling now that these guys like all right and Johnson was championship material. The guy was champion. You're like I'm fine with this even when you weren't but you got it boosts you'll get his moment. Just chill out but this match those fantastic incredible and then going over tonight to we had joosten thunder lighter his farewell retirement match which was cool. Haram Oh Takashi. It's kind of like their story and again like a passing of the baton so I thought that had a really good really good story to it. Pongy Three K.. One the tag titles junior heavyweight titles junior heavyweight titles L. Phantasmal is so good I I was like oh they got to come up with these titles because he needs his own run this year in super junior's you know he was about the Fantasma this people that really don't like him and I think it's because he looks like an asshole. Yeah and I and I think that's I think that's what he wants. His style lends itself to being a complete jerk and when he wrestles. And you like. I don't like him but you can't fight like the athleticism is ridiculous when he walks to corners on the ropes. Like it's akin to win. Phoenix does that walking kick on the top but he does off were and he never misses he never just like slips and falls off but then he's just Wayne he goes into like the mole where he's crushing it. You know you still annoyed with him. Because he's a jerk jerk like he smirks in between his mood he laughs he pouts he cheats. He does everything right. And showing your greatness this marriage this was a good match they are any interesting predicament with junior heavyweight and heavyweight tag divisions because they don't have a lot of guys to help like there was a time when the young bucks Red Dragon and like war machine when they were in the taxing divisions in New Japan. It was dickins weakens now. If you're trying to fill vacancies parents singles restless togethers to make this stuff like showing your attack team and it feels like it's inevitable for them to have a singles right but they can't have one to find another taxing to take their place the kind of stuff. Well they they always made it a point to you. Know when you break in your in a tag team like I think Ballard was in a tag team when I broke in for like two years before before. He got his rod in a lot of these. Like you come in. You're introducing detecting showing. You introduced the TAG team. Eventually go their own ways evil Sonata building their own characters actors now right but introduced straight out dough Joe as tag team so that's usually their bread and butter. We haven't seen new guys promoted even though they had one on the undercard or the until it was televised. I guess it was a pre show to this and they had like four L. A.. Doj Overseas Japanese. Yeah yeah so that was cool you get to see some of the up and coming guys. There was American guy from the La Doj a ton of charisma so interested in seeing what he does does as the year goes on. So there's some people coming but again a lot of those tag teams you mentioned were guys from Roi from the states. Let's go over there and work. They were kind of funding in legit tag teams who have been together forever with an x t now and e W. and H.. Struggling you know impact is really picking up. They don't they aren't getting those guys anymore. No but you gotta figure something. If you're going to have a tech visit you defy people or you got to condense the one tag division. Well that part too. But they've been they've always been adamant about this junior heavyweight division. Do Dave Dave Dave had so many great tag teams. This is the first time in a long time. We're both tag divisions because a W has all the tank teams and he's like all right well new Japan. You've got to figure something out because yeah grills they're your tactics showing when you're there you're tag team but going see grills destiny versus eagles and not have so many times we like I cool. Can we move on and same with showing you against like El Desperado. Entitled like like there's only so many combinations that you could see them face until you find a legitimate tactic so this match was cool. We got we got the ended ended. I expect it with the junior heavyweight title Champs again but I'm just curious like what do you do next with. That's all yeah I mean you honestly honest- honestly you just gotTa hope our wage folds you just get their talent like you just need the briscoes full-time or you know just guys like that and hope a ww snatch everyone or maybe get an actual working partnership with aws so you can have the Lucho Bros. versus verses guerrillas a destiny. I'm sure that they'll figure something out. This is this. This is just a minor women. It's not like yeah minors not even. Yeah the matches are still good is. She's very repetitive. Because there's like three taxes but right now they're like three taxis dusty Rhodes tournament ornament three real tags shade in two are two of them are imported from the UK. And they're already so in that quick. So yeah it's you know. Slim pickings eighty w just smashed up a ton of Greek tag teams Young ones to private party shit like that. Those guys they used to get and now there's two twenty twenty three to twenty four year old Awa learning the ropes over there. So you know it's it's going to be a building process but we'll see how it goes getting into the meat of night to Goto versus cancer. Those people that didn't like this match. I love this match because I thought it was good. I love it but I thought it was good. I mean it's five Song Max but it was. It was for for me. It was the next day we kind of needed because now that we know that Chabad is probably never going to wrestle again he never could get cleared so he had to go in this match with Goto for the never grope away title and we know those who watch Dodo knows when go to get to these matches he brings it they lay in data. I was concerned with like it's going to do is he's going to lay into these strikes and these beat the shit out of each about a third of the way through the match that really did just about to beat the hell each other Cantonese that he needed that match that he needed to match where he could prove that he's GonNa be physical because he's smaller. He's older but I enjoyed this. I thought this was a great way to setup cancer for what happens at the end because he had to drop the title but he drafted tunnel in a very physical. It's it's a massive kind of solidifies with several titles. Always been two guys is beating the piss out each other. Ah Issue Holding that title. Time kind of lends to that. But yeah even the other guys hold it. That's kind of the Mo behind it and in your completely right. It gave Ken tonette level of physicality that I feel like he's been missing for a while even is run through like g one and stuff was like lesser This might be his best new Japan match. I think so I think it who I felt like. Okay he's hitting another gear it. I didn't know if he had that Gearan. Just maybe the injuries robbed him. You know maybe the self confidence was gone after just a shitty run through an xt. But I feel like he started getting comfortable again and he started getting swag back. So we had that match that we had J. Wipe Versus Code Obuchi and this is where I think. The Co Bush's jobber talks built up because Jay White and gaito cheated throughout this whole shit and it led to co losing so you thought after he thwarted the cheating attempts like twice like quotas issue. And he's GonNa win and he hoped up at one point. Just start beating the shit out of Jay White right but then at the end. It was like nope. We're snatching his back and you know what Jay White needed this win. More than Kota Bouche vary the truth there. That's exactly exactly was gonNA say. PSA Koto giant. Listen Jay White Book Club lost all week. They just kept all week. So at a certain point they had to win a match and it wasn't Ajay White one clean so it didn't put a damper on a Busey. Really it's Jay had cheat to win. And he had cheat hard because a bluesy when he went to a dark place glazing the only part of the massive heart punts Gaito engaged like sold like he got murdered and he didn't but other than right like responsible match would just coaches go into that dark place and he was beating the hell out of Jay White but then he loses. If you like is you know. I think it's it's fine. Jay White needs this win. Like if you want bullet club to be a fashion that people care about. Somebody's got to win a match. And if you can't be Koto Bucci in the biggest match I like I don't know who you extablished. Outside of. They can't laws grows destiny loss. Everybody lost everybody. Everyone laws so they have to pick up a win here and the by any means necessary against one of the scariest guys are pro wrestling right now because again when code blue she goes dark places hard to beat so they had to pull out every trick trick in the book to do it. Not Mattis if Jay laws era we saw about who should about the bully club. Because that's what would happen. Who cares he lost a rematch? Another one so at least you have something to hang onto. Yeah and I think again long-term booking in plans everyone else loses j. wife's White's the only one that winds how long until he's like you know what I don't need you guys long teams like I. Kind of my own person you know these these little seeds of dissension. That could be used going forward. So I I like all that like I thought again. The wind gives white a lot more possibilities than it gives. Bushy collar will be fine. Kota can come out when you want again next year but I'm happy it's like perfect like like he's so over that none of these losses are going to affect no not at all again. I think he's fine. I think he's fine and I think mismatch proved it again because he just had a lot of people would say it was a five star. Batch will cover the night before and then he had a fantastic measure j white which the other the side of it is J.. White God his win back because he lost the Code Obuchi and the G one finals. Yup so they're still storytelling their stories not over out. I think I think we're GONNA see these two go at it again. So everything was fine about this. Mazes match was whack that we'd have to discuss but they were again. You get kind of trust the GAITO vision and it's worked. This match was great. It wasn't like the night the next batch was the match of the night but this was great. The next match was not matched to the night away. Match was my most disappointing. Now never mind okay. Yeah okay the the next match. Is Chris Jericho versus Tana. She two things. There's two reasons most support. I'M NOT GONNA shit all over ten Hashi and say a horrible match but it was disappointing for me. One Jericho looks about eighty years. Old makes just call a speed speed. He flexed that one point. Any heads zero muscle definition. I'm just like I don't I don't like the paint. I don't like his character in Japan. The pain maker that Shit stupid to me. I don't like to and and this was my my biggest thing the placement of this match. You place it. After j White Coat Obuchi you place place that after cancer in Goto like those are matches. That actually means something. So I'm now thinking has some actual stakes. Okay okay. Awa World Championship is here cool. Maybe this is going to give us some insight into that nope this match literally early progressed. Nothing further no storyline and wasn't very good mostly due to Chris Chair. I didn't hate the match approach. I enjoyed it as a as a match where you had. I mean this is kind of like jerk doing his bucket list now facing everybody in New Japan at least once and there. There are limitations of Chris Jericho now Chris. Jericho is not y two J. He's not the Lionheart. He's the old version of Chris Jericho. which strangely enough works perfectly? Finding W like the inner circle because it's Promo base he carries it were promos in aid. W can't do depend tries anyway. I don't like the character. He's had some matches guys. Like cody with Adam page. Hey Kenya Mega in assign Omegas. Like I don't want to say he's wrestling to his capacity on a w but as I knew Japan's like a different scale and even the match with Kenya Omega. They had ad that stipulation because straight up wrestling. Can you might drown Chris. Jericho that night wrestle kingdom but when they do the rule book out and Jerry who just do other shit you kind of hit his age and his flaws and stuff like that this being a straight up wrestling match because huskies still go clear he ogle so. Take it down a notch to wrestle on Chris. Jackal was trying to do you know the salting. I still love the walls you to the Lion Tamer. I still love that transition but when you watch tallahassee you think okay Kinda. It's like a rapper. DUMBING himself down to be on a guest spot with another performer. So he doesn't just completely blown out the water and I felt like that's that's what's on how she was doing. I didn't hate it. The placement was a little questionable because it was kind of your letdown mass. Before the main event the stakes I liked the fact introduce states. Did make the match intriguing. Because you trying to figure out where they're going with us well yes Jackal Jackal just. He can't go balls to the wall. Japan style like some of these other guys came. He's he's older he just can't do it. I still enjoy trump's Jericho I still think he's stateless. Claim one of the greatest wrestlers of all time because longevity would put him in this kind of a situation a guy who was old as well but still a million bucks in the bring the limitation show and this was like the good match. Just wasn't I can see. It was disappointing. YEA It wasn't a bad match not trying to say that it was just it was a letdown due to the placement now if it was there and Tallahassee wins. And that means we're getting a rematch in a w for the title cool. I understand the placement. Now now it all makes makes sense the way it played out I thought the ending fell flat lacklustre. It didn't live up to what it could have been so I go right whatever time for the main vet and main event didn't have to go fifty minutes. It didn't have to go sixty he didn't have to be like yours. Pass because again. Both these guys just gave it their all the night before and this was the fastest thirty five minutes. I've seen in a long time. I blinked tells Kyo is I thought it rose fourteen minute match man. This is that thirty five thirty seven it was so good in the storytelling was so good and it was again again too hard on storytelling. These guys weren't one hundred percent you weren't going to get the spots that you've got the night before and I was okay with that and they had unfinished business at teased back to that match. Two years ago NATO's new was still message so many things had to be overcome for him the win and then he wins and we'll talk about what happens after that but man has been this buildup in its overdoing. He finally gets his moment and he doesn't even get to enjoy Roy and I love that part of you. Yes so one thing I think I called this maybe in November. I was like Yo things tomatoes time remember. I said that we're going to replicate housing now big time because he had lost one I give up. I throw the fucking papers in the air where I was irate and I was like there's no. There's no inroads for him to really do anything and then Lo and behold there was. Yeah so I'm watching. Imagine them the okay. First of all what I've been talked about was Okada's entrance the night before was unbelievable. Glow in the dark robe in them. The little laser Joe was don't but it's like when knights came out with that With the same all nothing I was like. Yeah we're about to go over there and I felt comfortable. I was like he can't lose this match can't but me say that my head versus what was translating on television there were a couple neo- falls win win a win. Okada hit the rainmaker clean. I was like Yo it's over. They got me ordinary falls a few times in this match and what somebody said nights will look like. He lost his stuff the night before. No I think he played the injury. Roll Up. 'cause this was it was great and New Japan Tokyo. Don't just pee Japanese fans general. There are relatively quiet. Bunches to match goes along the peak that this matchup between the Takahashi win and this is the final stretch of Naito match. I've never heard the Tokyo Dome that crazy they were going nuts. Absolutely nuts over these two and it was a million bucks in Okada. He recognized very early that this was a night so crowd tonight so he played the Hill Rome. He was asked surpluses certain parts of match where he was doing. Hit the discus rainmaker. Then he had a couple of calls is and kept the risk control and he kind of looked out in the crowd and smirked. I was doodle cottage. He he just gets it gets way supposed to be because as a baby faced people love. Everybody wanted to win on this night. I mean this match which for me it was just a five star. Match on a different level wasn't like the it wasn't like it wasn't like the Osprey shingle match this athleticism. That are just ridiculous. The asprey talk tug icy Max. This was just like phenomenal. Storytelling two guys at the crowd was like ultra high for NFL. I felt like every move during the final stretch. Felt like it meant something but everything and then I said this before the match happened nights a lawsuit will Katha the two years ago because he got too greedy because he went for the star press which was his old finishing when he won g one loss to kind of like six years four years before they. Anyway he's still had that moving the repertoire. Yeah that was his old baby face. Finish it because if any other remembers nights was a baby faced people did like he was almost rocky. My Avia esque. In the fact that people just buying this baby face NATO and then he went to Los Uncovered Cobra Nov lays in the became. This I don't give a Shit Naito until then people fell in love with him but that wrestle kingdom he got greedy i. Am You finish Okada off. So I'M GONNA go back to the whale with the starters press. He missed it. Eight a rainmaker lost the match here. Oh another keynote Kevin. Kelly is probably the most underrated commentator impressive today. Oh you did so well with at that. He is excellent. The way he delivers. Testino is up there with. Jr's like Bob Gainey broken. Have it's just it's just so passionate. So good and there were moments and Corey graves. Kinshasa guess incredible call to the way that the Kevin Kelly was calling this match down the stretch and I ate something usually for me. There was a time like before they got. US Commentary. This tells you what's new Japan. I enjoy the Japanese commentary. 'cause you feel it does do this. I didn't mind because Kevin Kelly was so good and rocky like everybody. Competent was really Kevin. Kelly took this to another levels levels especially when Okada kicked out of that one Destino and they're doing the counting Kevin Kelly was like. Oh my God what the hell. He's like he loses. whose is like? He's caught into the moment as commentator who clearly doesn't know the finish of this match and those are the best. That's Jim Ross. Years ago he was. I used to hate if they ever told me the finish. Because then I can't give you my emotions like when I did know Kevin. Kelly played in this like he didn't know what was going to happen. And do the the final searches mattresses ultra-high when he finally hit that lasted Estino in that crowd. Popped I smile up sitting in my my house. Whatever time was three arena morning right? I thought it was gonNA make it the Russell King at night because I was tired I was wide awake. I can't go to sleep after this. This legit Oh and what. We didn't talk about sorry because we do have self about this. Oh we didn't talk about Moxie beating juice Robinson because the match was like whatever but the Moore Suzuki show up to challenged Moxley I lost my shoot. The Maj was but the pop at that point I even had to go aright fucking throw. Throw all the rules out the window. You want to see a death match. This is the only one MOXIE got to new Japan and I lost a bet so I was just distraught. This is what kept me going man. I was like what the hell with it I get. Inverse Suzuki beat the shit out of each dog. uh-huh and then we also got the Kazanina we got like because we didn't have that all weekend. Because even the Suzuki Goon Tag Zach sabres music. Oh we've been talking about Sabre Sonata which that was a phenomenal technical match. And I think it says a lot about whether or not it might be heading soon. Because he's really good but back to this. This main event was excellent excellent. Then we'll talk about it can to interrupting at the end. Some people like. Why can't I loved this because I did not see coming in the folded holded lake sitting on his face holding the belts and not giving nights? It was moment I know some people like it. I don't know I did. I joined the shit out of that. Oh I did too. I mean every now go to pull the trigger with Kenton now than win. This is big right. Like Yeah He. He needs to be matched. That you've been waiting all this time again. He's a legend over there. A legend with a history of of injuries a legend who may or may not have lost step by his character. Work seems top notch. It seems like if you learned anything from annex t his character territory has gotten pretty damn good. Yeah Yeah I mean I think we can all agree that his NFC runs sucked and it's partially because injuries. Maybe they just figure out how to book but whatever you took away from an extension. He brought here on this night as a character was excellent. Oh Yeah so just his attack back then just crossing the legs with the both belts on top of night so that that photo is going to be amazing. I haven't seen it anywhere yet wherever they publish that Shit. That's going to run for years him holding both belts and just sitting crosslegged smirking overnight. 'till just ruin his night the the mate he works so long for in. Say the hell with this loved it but the first time Naito cared about belt in like ten years by the away because he used to just shit everywhere. His disrespect of belts is one of my favorite parts of his character. So for the first time you actually shows like I wanted this bro Bell. I worked for it. I love this belt and boom someone takes it away from perfectly duck. So we've taught about recipe long enough but I do WANNA touch on one thing before we talk talk about rowing in aid of ewing and everything else so there was a tweet like Dave meltzer posted on twitter. That Okada's winstead ahead of flare. The Rock and Shawn Michaels in some people were like this is blasphemous. As soon as they saw that I initially. I I said this is ridiculous. This is a high thing then I started to think about it. Kozinski Okada what. He's accomplished this conversation to be. Hey I'm not saying I agree with it. I'm not saying he's ahead of Shawn Michaels. I'm not saying he's ahead of the Rock. I'm not saying he's ahead of flair because it's interesting because the tweet itself that was screen shot was meltzer saying that but immediately the one thing I said was like he never said he was better than Bret. Hart so I feel. It was a very specific thing I think it was a very specific layer. flair was his five Star Guy Until Okada came along like flare is was the top of the top like he champions flare steamboat to no end because it was like that was his holy grail before Okada Omega came law so it makes me wonder if Meltzer is talking about one of the greatest of all time period or big match wrestler. So I I wasn't exactly sure where he was going with it but I maybe at this point in time maybe at thirty one years old. Maybe he's on pace ahead of these guys so I started looking at this thinking ban. Okada's been doing this for a little over half if a decade and he's made of any six out of the last eight wrestle kingdom in every time he's inventive he's come away with damn near five star match every single time now that this doesn't clue what he does. Gee One is doesn't include the maximum. I loved again. Shibata in his last match is doesn't include include his matches with Suzuki doesn't include his kings of pro wrestling to who else. He's wrestled so many people that Kenny. Oh Mega four-match wasn't even at Wrestle Kingdom. No that was on was it Dominion Dominion. I believe yeah. It doesn't include any that so when we talk about Okada's place in wrestling history. It's kind of hard to do. Because he's still doing this kind of like what I say about Kendrick Lamar's like it's Kinda hard to place a guy who has had up to the fall of yet but you can kinda talk about his current run that they're on at the moment at the moment. I think you can't say he's on pace to be. You wanted these. The greatest of all time one of you know I think he he needs to be in that conversation because what he's done he's just he just never fails you. He's been checked again. Guys who are able to be champion. Hold onto the title and still deliver. Excellent matches are very far. Few human between he continues to do with different guys. He doesn't do with the same guy if you look at flair. And it's weird as a sidebar. I Bob when people talk about flare. I always wonder it's like well how many y'all really watch flaring like W W with the NWEA when flair was feuded with dusty Rhodes and we'll flay was was few with Terry funk which is one of my favorite fuse a lot of people really haven't seen we talk about flare steamboat. Yeah you can find it in the archives but how are really watchfully on the work that he put it. I don't don't think enough people want to talk about flare have really seen flare now. They see maybe the promos from that time but not the matches. So that makes the promos lived on during that time and made flare alleging and then they saw him. WWE RETURN TO WCW time But the matches kind of get lost in those amazing Promo because the reality is with flair his grades moments would never in. WWe never suffer make the savage match which should have been hogue INARI seven on the greatest royal rumble ever. Yeah but aside from that his greatest feuds to me was steamboat by by far dusty Rhodes Terry funk stink even when he feuded with lex Luger as a kid as a kid I was invested because I hated ric flair but I thought that was so cool. So how can I hate this guy. Love him at the same time. He exuded big match qualities. The Rock may not be on the technical level of any of those guys but when it comes to a big match the rock deliver because he was just a charismatic son of a bitch. And yes we all hey Hogan now but that Wrestlemainia Mashal Hogan Unbelievable Unbelievable Attrition. Because you knew what to do Okada's a guy who was figured out when it's time to turn into big MACs is no cruise control. He Kills I. I think it's fair. To have is not as blasphemous as people make it out to new Japan where news global expansion really without Okada could do without him business had Nakimora. The more was never champ. Tallahassee Tallahassee was tampered Okada and take the title off when they went to global expansion they kind of did it off the back of Okada. 'cause I don't I don't even think they knew what was about to be. They just had a guy this was on the back of Qatar. Gaffey you gotta give them manage. Flowers away could smell them. He's that good. No I agree and the biggest thing for him which is like super cool. Who is that his biggest? I guess failure if you want to call it that at TNA. Ron Is what that created who he is now because he learned that he needed the gimmick he needed more than just entering. He learned the the importance of how the crowd reacts. He was there to see the height of age as thousands of Samoa. Joe vers is you know what Perk Angle Angle. But he was there and he seeing these things and he took that back and created who he is. Now he's amazing to me that was that losses like Canoas lost whether it go into TNA taking et AL changed his entire career the best over to I mean he came back and he is who it was like. This is a lot about when promotions mismanaged talent. Because you've got to remember like ww had stone coast. Will that stunning Steve Austin Austin and. WCW had mean mark callous before he became the undertaker TNA had Okada. They just didn't know what to do with Tina had seen them punk for a hot second team. They had me which later became young bust. You've got to be in the right situation to flourish. But when Okada's showed up in new Japan in Don that rainmaker gimmick with the robe and the money like and if you look at some of his early entrances we had like the drag. You come on man. Yeah the guys next love. He's he's a Japanese avenue flare. It's like he went to donate software. was there when they were trying to parade for only shit probably sat down at three or four conversations leftovers like I can kinda. I just work with that character. Dude is really. He's he's really spectacular talent so when we talk about Okada I think it's fair to have a conversation. It's like man this dude. He keeps us it up. Yeah we can have this conversation about where he stacks up with. HP became the rest of those guys. Does these care. Most of those back may not be right now but I think he's deserving he's done consistently to be in. The Congo is amazing in itself and he's deserving irving of that Let's rain on your parade a little bit about. We're all our good sheet in new Japan. Relegate let's talk about raw why Islam Salonen Lashley still a thing because of the ratings like. I feel like Vince things. This is looking Khuda to grow. This is this is great victory. This is bad. It's it's bad it's funny because I hardly remember all like I watched watched it on Monday and I'm still thinking about recipes and I'll say this is hard to watch and Samoa Joe had some good spots The big show Mr the big thinks overview opt for the big show pop for the big show. I don't need it every week but they got me. I was not expected at his music. Was it just hit so hard though. Like once you to the well like you gotta pop one year. The like the match was a great victory. Wasn't it wasn't terrible but they've they've invested so much in the Alana Bobby last angle. But I'm just like this is stupid and then the whole Russa been on the beach thing with dome and I mean I don't know man I think on drought. He's been excellent. I just don't know how many green screen beach drive. He's been excellent excellent. I'm I don't need another mysterious match though because it kind of hit the same beats in every single match in bloom. I've seen it enough where I loved it. I like still still cool but we kind of need to move on Andreotti's really good so let's just give them some more work. I think The Viking years are you're the one of the most boring tax champions ever seen because they keep crushing people and I just don't care they don't let them have any might time time. They really don't explain the story behind. Why they're vikings? That would go go very far right like are they here to oh. I don't know pillage Vikings here to pillage. Just give me something. Give me some background to why you guys are who you are. 'cause if not that we really just get the belts off you again. Good matches on week to week but pay per view is they can bring it out. Oh good matches. But if you're not going to expand on the characters you just said hey these guys are. Vikings changed their name. Three times settled on Viking raiders and said okay. They're going to chance like okay. Why are the Vikings? I get it. They're going to stay champs until they get to go to Tampa and they're gonNA come in writing the boat or some shit or they're it's going to be in a crazy. That's the only reason they're champions. Vince wants that entrance. That's it so understand I get it but do you mind explaining cleaning. This is Paul Heyman. This is what he's supposed to do right there too small for Vince. Even care about Vincent Shit about tag teams any at all. This should be Paul's pet pet project. Let's explain why you guys are Vikings. Why are you mad you? Let's let's do something with this. So yeah that's what makes them boring. But then we have Alastair black versus Buddy Murphy which too few just keeps on giving Buddy Murphy Rectum. I love how this is going. Buddy worked Murphy may never win a match inside the ring. They're finding other ways to keep him. Strong outside of it during the feud fifty-fifty booking all the time this is how you keep interest in a few one. One guy is getting trashed in the ring every week and losing all the damn time. I love it Buddy Murphy. And then he hits the Alistair black polls on the apron not not crushes them on outside. I thought that was really well done. Yeah it's funny because I was like. Oh Shit Benjamin. He still here like you. He was in the match and I was like. Oh my gosh. Still employed employed by the company. Oh pretty good match though. Yeah I mean I've always liked shown. Benjamin he's one of the most underutilized talents and pro wrestling. He was Kofi before there was a Kofi because he was the guy always always had the spot in ladder matches and everything just could never win the big one but yeah I think I think raw is what it is. I like Seth rollins in this in this. He'll roll. I like him with authors pain. I think it's cool everything else. I'm just like whatever I like Kevin Samoa Joe Together for now announced. Try to topple these guys. I just want to figure out where it's all lean to brought laser being won the royal rumble. Leads tweet lot of questions. One being the man doesn't Russell more than fifteen minute matches. How long how long it's GonNa last in this world? Because I'm just GonNa go on and came Alaska's shows up and beats him up because I can't think anything anything else he's not GonNa Ironman this. You can't no he physically can't not because I don't want them to just don't was he brought Lizard. He just he gets paid by Bennie. Visit got enough money to tell them to stay there for our twelve. Yeah Canvas is going to come out and wreck them. Came probably comes out. What four you four or five? Give Brock a couple of people to really just crush feel good about ourselves and then canes music hits he may stay longer than that just for the switch people just people don't even recognize. His music is a blend. ooh Raymond Stereo. Sun Is coming out. You know the difference smoke. No one's GonNa pop for at this. Is Houston Houston hotbed for cave. Alaska you know what. Maybe maybe there's a ton of Mexican advancing US actually cares. Nobody nobody really cares. They've done nothing. I don't WanNa see him coming Out Yeah I don't WANNA see him coming out with Ma gloves and not doing Lucho Shit so now Mike whatever on him so that's probably the way we're going and came last who's going to get a title shot at rest mania it's going to be there marquee match like as far as like you know spectacle was and canes beat Brock and then what really thought Bobby Lashley maybe maybe bobby actually comes second in brock crushes. Bobby just because that's their down okay before talk about e w and this week and this is one of the foul. These talk shows running longer than expected. I want to say two things about smackdown. One finally pairing induce with Roman reigns smart. I really actually like that thing is long overdue to the John. Morrison Review was terrible. Why have John Moore's comeback if he's just going to show Ms. Lock say he's John Morrison and he's all right cool? He closes the door. And that's it. I should've been victim to save that. For Roy rumbles reveal something that was that was a waste of John Morrison. Oh huge waste. That's all I gotta say That's all I got. A Little Holes Magda just debut the debut him in the room. uh-huh I mean that's what they could have done cared then. Oh cool. The music comes out. He does a slow motion video inches pop for that but just kind of exiting the Mrs Locker L. Stupid and then it's like they're trying to figure out how the term is he'll now because the fiends gotten his head but a again I did like the Roman reigns being together other because it feels natural that they should be working together. I don't know necessarily know about against Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziglar but whatever. I'll take what I can get so yeah again. That's the best magnum. There's there's not much else to touch on Annexed was pretty good this week. Another another solid show and exteriors next at this point good fatal four way to end it great job by them for pushing keithly definitely. They're doing right by him. They found a way to make him a monster Bernarda. He'll it's weird dynamic. He's a monster baby face. You don't see that every day. No so that was that was really dope on the flipside aid W in my opinion taken on water the they've shown signs of struggles over the past couple of weeks and yesterday was like the culmination nations of non. There's some shit that really has to change. This was there were so period I still hold out hope for aid and I enjoy what they're attempting to do. But this show show was so disjointed and made so little sense I'm GonNa go through just a brief synopsis and things that I've really been like commentary brandy uncompensated. One is terrible to the first Max with hangman. Page and Kenny Omega Against Private Party. There's a spot in that match. Where Kenny Omega? An etampes hit their setup signature moves. Buckshot Larry Vitro on I think mark win. Jr Talks over it like nothing happened Luma. 'cause it looked really cool because like Kenny. Hits them with the GonNa Front and the back and I'm like wow jared newson he no sold like fucking Koto Bucci. I was like Oh big spot in the match. We got nothing out of NGOs had some difficulties on the Mike Commentary. Not The worst thing eh but it happens. The second thing about this match was if you guys remember. Four weeks ago pack was went to the Locker Room of Michael Nakazawa to Taunt Kenny Omega. The door closed four weeks pass. We have no idea. What the fuck capping we come to this this week? Once again pockets now choking out my Nakazawa which makes me say what has he been in the locker room and Nakazawa four weeks and now Kenya is mad it. I don't know what happened in the vacuum for the last four weeks of why they never addressed Louis but they are clearly lacking continuously in their storylines storylines from week to week. And this is why you need of writer's room just somebody who can say yeah. You did that last week and we follow that up this week. Don't Book Your Own Shit. It guys this glaring holes my other issue you have heaters heaters are big guys who show up just direction. Jake heggers heater where warlords a here. The DP angle would. EDP cuts a pro opponent. That sucks I thought. MGM tweeting during it was hilarious but it was stupid because I'm so tired of seeing old man. I'm I'll let you go from the old men in Awa Councils. I don't need to p gives a bunch of diet are Cao's makes makes Blaine and butcher. Who just showed up bad? You shouldn't have old talent going over on the new talent because you need to establish new guys DP is not going to be your for longer but blamed butch complete complete idiots taken. These died Arcos. I know it's not the diamond cutter. Doesn't feel the same warrilow stood there and did absolutely nothing as a heater. You're supposed to do you. Something wardlow should destroy. DP has not even in the six antagonized next week at Bash at the beach which has really cool graphic so I love how the graphics sleep for bashing the beach but this was pointless and just get to a point now with aws to save Yada figure this stuff out stop telling stories on social media and Youtube because everybody who was at home watching doesn't watch Being the elite they don't follow everybody on social media media. They're watching this completely but the fuck is going on. There's just no concern consistency. These things that can be fixed. These aren't things that can't can't be fixed. They are growing pains because learning how to work through weeklies but man. And then my last thing and I'll let you haven't after this cal. I'll let you talk about Moxie to which I enjoyed about. The women's match had like five minutes of interference bryce remembering the referee did absolutely nothing. Just let the match go on just blatant interference. They've been doing that for a week ago. We've ruled this was a singles match for the women's title between Stat Lander who I have no idea why care about her. If I didn't know from the indies and Rio who is really really small who just kinda shows up periodically and they have these this match and then Charlotte Anthony Springer the Brady bunch shows up to just have blatant interferes for reasons that completely unbeknownst to me. Because I'm watching this. Why are the interfering this MACs to help really? I don't get it like. Why is this happening? bryce remember referee is watching. The interference happening. It's doc he's being distracted and be like oh like doing the dumb ref stuff. It's not that it's just happening in front of his face not Q.. Just listen to match. Go and they're real with like some sneaky roller the MAC suck the interference brandy as Stephanie Mann. Suck they gotta figure this shit out you can have it kill in the brandy budge over. You know how I feel about Brandy I've given up on my my stance on brandy rose. They should be honest. She's not steph. It's okay we don't. We don't need to plug her into roles every week. Not everyone has to be on television. That's another thing like it's not necessary and there's some people like how about we let sunny kissed get on television. who was that what I forgot? Who's Eh is someone who may or may not have been on one of our panels a just a lovely person who should be on television? Nine rose I thought she was just crushing people. She's on and off again. I thought she was set up. You know she lost the first title match but DOT. We're building the something. Apparently they own built anything. Big Swollen has been who signed you. Have these signings. One thing and exte- does really really really. Well is they make all of these signings feel big time whether they pay off or not sometimes guys easy three or or Pablo Cruz. But you know what more times than not they become a big deal they they didn't make that signing become a big deal because their first two matches on a dark this you had a tough match but there's no angle kind of doing their said. Oh She's part of roster if you're going to sign people have a plan for them before debut them. The war low plants seem pretty good but then you throw them into to a feud randomly and then a bunch of old guys and I guess he. DDP Handout Yoga cutters. Yoga telling the others are the real. I'd buy here for that that that's not what I signed up for and above all else please. At every week I see the same. Dark order is not going to work. They're not part of me. Thinks that they're like they have this. Dark order as a placeholder will like these two guys. And then I think Stu Grayson weirdly in the match like he goes by the mets do grayson roles in is like Ha. I dare you guys are telling me. And then they just beat the shit out of him and I was like that was. But maybe maybe they're holding out on the dark order for Luke Harper somebody to take this shit over because they're hanging onto this for a reason and I can't fathom it's just because of those two anymore has to be somebody is gonNA come in and be like. Oh okay now this makes sense I but even then of US I do. I don't know there's one thing and I'm not sure it's necessary but one thing that will save this and they should still might flow because he doesn't need it if they go into the next pay per view and this was all a buildup and you hit Mardi skulls music. And he's the ringleader behind this. I'll give it a shot spoiler for what I've gathered from Ring Avodon because I've just talked to the ring of honor. Mardi skirl is booked for Super Card Autumn. which is Wrestlemainia? Weekend in Lakeview Florida. So probably means he's not going to be able to show it will be yeah. I don't know any contract memento. It was suppose one of the year when I talk to Joe Carter was the CEO of our wage about a year ago. He said that girl had a year left on his contract. It should be up at the end of the year but apparently he's working week to week or I don't know what's going on PTO's Champa skirl losing sendoff but they have his name on the press material. Maybe this is completely wrong. I want to say one last thing before we get out of here and you can kinda jump on it as well all all of this to say the aws in dire need of amid car title. Because they don't have a fucking mid card everybody that wrestles it's Russell in the have the record right and it's like all right cool. Well they have the record to win the title but if you have a program where it's clearly we're going Moxie Jericho. What is everybody else doing because yeah okay cody and MG F. is your other program but once whatever happens we call the Jeff wizened you go from here you got guys like Orange Cassidy Sammy Guevara? He's just known as the little guy in inner circle each pins for them. Give them something to do. There is no mid card desert. That's why we don't see Sunni kiss. We've seen showing spears of weeks because I have nothing to do because because the Russell for the heavyweight title nothing it's like only certain guys have programs but you need to give people a reason to wrestle and I'm not saying they need like thirty seven titles I don't I don't need twenty four seven title. I title your I just need something in the middle of the car that starts establishing mid card fuse. Because they've just just the other top heavy in in terms of storytelling like okay. You working towards which seems like hangman. Page breaking off from the elite. Seems like they're clearly heading in that direction right but you look at Kenya. Mega Pack Hangman page. None of them are in the title picture right now. Cody's always going to be a guy who's going to being a major program. These work for something M. F. will be the perfect television champion. Wouldn't he not and when I mean you have a litany any of young guys like Darby Al exactly a guy that you just built up for you know weeks in program with cody you. No one would be pretty good. That's why these make our titles exists exactly to give people a taste in run in a field that the working grow and learn how to be champion so by the time they are your main champion. It's familiar it's comfortable. They know how to. It's also a heat check because of like in. WB when when ultimate warrior when the icy title when Squash Hockey Tarman. Oh man and Vince saw the reaction to ultimate warrior. He was like Oh shit rocket. Pack he's going to be our next champion. Savage held the IC title a lot of guys some guys suck the hill the title is the fucking Barbie. beefcake was is a champion. Nobody gave a shit Mr Perfect he never was the main champion. Nice to champion Rick Rude. They had programs based around icy title. Like if you can't have a two hour show each week and I'm left wondering certain guys are like you mentioned Darby Allen. We have seen Jimmy havoc in weeks. These ads will have anything to do. This what are they working for. I have no idea semi Rivera's doing except for eating pins better. Storytelling is absolutely necessary. You remember just a few weeks ago. Scorpio Scorpio Sky was challenging for the title. They've done nothing essence ended. quit are they still tagged our. But it's like you need somebody body of rule is that doesn't have to be the WWe level of room writers. You need a small group of people who are dedicated to developing thing. These talents that Orange Cassidy's Darby Ellen's Shawn Spears. Jimmy Have Samuel Veras like all right code if you want to book your own Shit Find. You've done this long enough young bucks if you WANNA book the Tarantino Division fine but we're here to start establishing other guys in this company because you guys are focusing too much on Jericho. Eriko has and everybody can't wrestle Jericho each week. It just can't happen Lucia source and Jake Hager should mean a program. But you've done nothing to undeveloped at in a week to week. They're suffering heavily. Women's the visit just needs a complete. Overhaul I don't know what you're going to be the bay and listen Kenya Mega. I know he's smart and as a wrestler himself. He's great I'm not sure. Maybe he's over his head he he means well but maybe it's just not for him. Jordan was one of the best Jordan's the best basketball player of all time. Sucks General Manager. Exactly sometimes it's just is not in the cards which comes down to the biggest problem I raise. I raise your mid card title to say that they need writers. They need structure. They don't need an overwhelming Vince. But they need someone to say you know what no we have to do it. This way. A story board they need to. They need someone who's going to collect all these ideas and I'll go willy nilly and long-term plan Gaydos eight already taken need somebody. That's going to be the glue that says hey man packages choke down Nakazawa four weeks ago allegedly and we just completely dropped the story airline. Do we need to pick that one back up guys because you guys don't even think about it for four weeks they need somebody to say that. Hey guys Lack of one more know a masseuse masseuse like really loud in my no more. Canadian destroyers transitional move. Cut that shit out. I don't if the when Dustin Rhodes Canadians destroy on the ring apron. Sammy Guevara and dozen pin him after that. What the Hell's the point of US doing this move that's become like it's essentially become come the super kick which even worse has become the DT? Jake the snake ended. Everybody's life now everybody does a dvd or the poison Rana. There was a year at the two thousand sixteen whatever he was doing the poison. Iran the verse Eric Iran. It just doesn't mean anything anymore but you look at the Canadian destroyer. No matter how many ways you slice it that moves to kill you and now is the director formerly known as gold dust is doing his. CUT It out as a transition condition. If it's not a finish it don't do it. You got to protect some of these moves. Won't we angels the most protective moving pro wrestling. I'm happy about it but this Canadian destroy nonsense needs to stop. Everybody doesn't at least three times. Why is gold dust? Half gold or is Dustin Rhodes half goal does have dust. I don't know I don't get to go back to being a cowboy. Dan The natural. I'm sorry there was one more thing I need I need the old. Town's Starr stopped going over. I don't need a DP doing yoga cutters on on the new guys. I don't need Cody and Dustin beating the clean. I don't need that I don't either. I know who you you are. I need you guys to start developing this other talent DP is beat the shit out of of blatant butcher do they show up. You're using when you establish new talent late. Put them in squash. Matches established with like wardlow should be squashing. Somebody some local talent. That's may stolen great swats matches. Give me a reason. Why should care about him? I have no reason to care about this card. It's fixable thing I still watch w week to week but these are the problems now that the new Carson is off and you need to fix them because you won't last another year if you don't yeah. I mean. We watch Monday night raw week to week. We can do that then. And we watch any truth of it but man. That's our show for today. We stayed the the length of two shows. But we've talked about wrestle kingdom for an hour or so. I get mad that we want to thank you guys for sticking with us through his transition on I think blue wire for allowing us to be part of the family one week down plenty more to come. We'll be releasing news on our next wrestling with stereotypes. Show we already know so. That is the Friday of Wrestlemainia week down in Tampa. So if you guys are booking plans make sure you guys try to be out there on Friday. You could check us out out with very cool pan over here and put it together. It's going to be great Trying to partner with the for the culture show we are part. We should be rocket spoiler alert. It should be where we are talking. Aj Gray we're partnered with them since we're going directly after so yeah you guys eat. Tickets will be announced soon but light listened to kill if you can't get there Friday Thursday because while they may news Thursday night. You guys don't want to miss if you get there Thursday. Now you're GonNa see me belligerently drunk so I mean that's that's also fine. This is what's going to happen. I still young enough to get drunk. I gotTa do all. I can do it while I can't. And so maybe by the bar while while mania not drinks me because those. ESPN checks are not going to pay for it. I can't expense any of this. So it's coming out of pocket but we we can hang around each other while I get drunk. That's as much as I can promise. And My goal for twenty twenty. I forgot to say this on the last show. No stupid bets this year. I refuse to keep losing pedsed. Andres Chris I will not buy any more meals and he's still if you can't just Tampa. We will be having a steak dinner if he does not corner me before then probably happened during wilder fury week. But he has dinner with his name on it and I am Sadler only smart beds. You can run but you can't hide. I'm getting this. Thank you guys for listening to US until next week.

The 'End of a Decade Pro Wrestling Awards' Episode

"It was what everybody is that time again. Third show this week for the corner podcast. Hopefully you guys are getting used to the new format. We are loving it. We're getting great feedback on social media. So make sure you guys check AH boxing. MMA episodes if you haven't already we gave out our your endless you've done hip hop on them. You've done all decade review for album of the year ear artists. It was crazy done so much over the past two episodes but now we got around it out with pro wrestling. And on this show we're diving straight raid into pro wrestling of course by now you know I'm caldeans. We hear the old man Andrei Hell. Oh man so much wrestling to talk because of course you you. I'd say almost in a couple of hours wrestle kingdom the first time ever. It's going to be two days and we're GONNA dive into that here in a little while. Tell me a your hype about that already. I'm super how about wrestling I was. I was going to be two days when we look at the lineup. It's incredible so I'm here for it. I'm ready great. Let me rain on your parade. I then that's all I had ear because at least you know brighter. Times are coming because we're going to start off with. WWe Why why would you do this. Because we got to kick it off right and we got to kick it off with what everyone is talking about the number one ray I bid segment in. WWe Over the past six months and that is the Lana Lashley wedding disgusting. Aw going crazy on Youtube. Isn't that what you care about you care about the youtube numbers. No not at all it. It was the highest rated ron like six months like three months. But that's what I'm saying like that was trashed to I mean. You know it's like people wanted to see because they were interested in curious. That doesn't necessarily mean it was good and it wasn't good it was. It was a car like look. We all know pro wrestling. Weddings are car accidents between weddings contract. Signings something else they'll always goes haywire. When he's contracts on is those are the two main things they never work out so we knew this was going to be a car wreck from the beginning but the use of live Morgan with the the Lesbian Angle? That was corny. It was mad long and I know the people have been commending. Lana but she's been terrible to me. I just insufferable. Maybe that's what they want. But it's been bad by lasted stinks. But I love. You said we all love who said we have a super over but come on man. That was a big ask. Who didn't know he was hiding that cake? He's still super over. which is amazing? Like somehow this angle has not cooled down at all. No we expected like we want to get over. We've wanted Russo for years. And now he's in the stupid angle and I guess if that's the way he's got to get over he's got to get over but it man this was. This is something they've committed to. This is like Vince. McMahon Jack offseason. This is what I'm GONNA call it because it's clearly a breakout of him and Paul Paul Heyman using the things the attitude era. They really enjoyed which are like sex in corneas like weddings. But for me like when you watch this this entirety of raw because you had some really good matches on you buddy Murphy analysis black. I thought the. Aj Sows Randy Orton. Promo was actually really good. Good because a lot of us thought that Randy was really hurt. Oh and I think there was a decent tag match if Ralway condense it down to maybe two hours in this thirty minute. Wedding didn't made event I would. I would have been good but the commitments of bullshit is what's always going to be bring. Ww Down to me. Some people like this in founded defensible. I just did. What did you think I thought raw was really good? Like you. Just mentioned like raw itself. I thought had really good matches. That Buddy Murphy Alastair Black Mats and could stand alone on a pay per view headline pay per view in that would have been just amazing so getting that match for free was really good. I liked the Kevin Owens kind of Samoa Joe Pairing. I'd it would mystics out to me. If that's what. If those guys teamed up in India would have ruled. I'm a little curious about how it ends up on. WWe But hey they look good together. Those two guys would just destroy troy. People liked the idea of a baby faced Samoa Joe for a while because he's always threatening enough that you know he's GonNa stab APP. Somebody in the back is gonNA last forever Kevin. Oh it's too so it's like the perfect Weiner tag team and people still kind of boost. Who Says Rawlins? I'm not sure if people are buying into that I lacked the character and I like the change. I think it was something very needed for Seth rollins. I liked how they went about doubted. It still seems as though you know he has enough firepower to get over on. The calving owns Samoa. Joe Tag team. But I'm interested to see how it goes maybe we Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens Aarp at Royal Rumble. I think that'd be a pretty damn good match. I have a feeling mysterious going to be involved in this too because he. I think it'll end up like a three way because there's no way that Raleigh's is going to have a one on one. I think as Rawlinson the AARP versus Samoa. Joe Kevin was array materials what we're GONNA world rumbles as not bad. I rather set to sit out and play like you know the Godfather boss type role like y'all don't he's got to wrestle tonight. You guys go do my dirty work and then just rekkem after the match or some did play up his role more. If he's in the match I feel like it kind kind of dilutes to match a little bit. But we'll see we'll see how they go on that one I would save seth just for the rumble. You want him to write about just put them in a row. That's that's what it's there for. They don't he doesn't have to be involved in a match as well and then I think there was a match right before this. Oh Andrade thirty two and dry match versus ricocheted but that was cou being a champ winning. How show the amnesty show? It was like the how show to switch belts now so I love that aspect of it on driving. I'm so glad it doesn't look like they're breaking him in Selena Vega Up. 'CAUSE Selena Lina Vega. I think it's still great firm. Even though he's you know taking on more English in learning and cutting his own promos she still has a lot to him so I liked that the Paris air staying together for now. All of that I liked that was my main event of raw. I turned it off and I was like you know what I'll watch the rest on twitter and I'm glad I did because because the Morgan I was always a fan. Look mortgage like I I liked it. I liked issues are going to Jordan's I thought the blue tongue would super dope like Harley Quinn Gimmick Nick. I thought it worked. They just never gave it any time and the right squad. I thought kind of work ten. What happens them? Ruby riot tore like everything thing in her shoulder. I believe she's been out for surgery for nine months. Good Lord so she should be coming back soon but yet everything and when your leader undergoes everyone goes right so we. I don't know what happened to the check in that ceremony Something Sushi was they stuck obviously is on team smackdown. She did absolutely nothing osh it. Well there you go so yet. Sarah Logan's just middling and in. I'm doing nothing. She beat. Good for kickback. Down an xt. And so I don't know what they're doing with. Live Morgan coming. Because this isn't live Morgan. Right this is them telling. Live Morgan to play a character. At least before she would playing herself turned up thousand. Notches which is what usually works in pro wrestling. I think this is her playing a lesbian character. Just to throw another swerve into this Shitty shitty. The story line but how does this help live more and going forward. Is She gonNA play lesbian character for the next five years. I don't know it's so it's so it feels like on some levels. That live. Morgan was too close to the lesson list character. And that's why they've been trying to reset her like 'cause I mean. Vince loves his blondes. And you look at it and you look at the scene and you look at like you said live morning was Harley Quinn but don't you remember like Alexa. Bliss was trying to be Harley Quinn. As well so at a certain point I guess they they were trying to figure out what to do wither adventures like hot lesbian accident Great thanks a lot then tire thing as a bang. Bros rose production. I know you can't tell me the different WRESTLEMANIAS IN TAMPA L- they go to bring out the rose bus all that shit. You can't start off with like okay. This is the traditional cuck angle invincibles like you know what what makes this even hotter what. What's my search on Google? Say he went through his entire history on Google chrome was like you know what at one time I got lost in this threat of lesbian porn. So let's mix that in there too. Why not the heels like three way who doesn't like Manashe? That's that's going to be the next job somehow. Going to figure this out and she's going to have both of them and they're all going to be in. The bed is going to be super tight and it makes it even worse glasses. So corny Oranje. Oh He's a quarter super he. It's not I don't know man. I don't see how this is appealing people that like this. I don't get it I get it. It's just soccer. People like this like everything I'm sold on it at this point like Vinnie Matt can do no wrong to them or like it just to say that they like just us to be concerned. They know it's Shitty but they wanna be different wannabe edgy. And say oh you guys like the attitude era. This is what it was no. This isn't what it was. Yeah we had a couple of Venus characters. There was a dumb Shit Mark Henry gave you know had a child that was a hand and yet there is still relaxed but this this is beyond that because a lot of these wedding angles in the nineties. We're like top people to storylines at lease made sense. It progressed the story. I don't know where any of them go after. This could've rousseff food few with next. I don't know a returning turning sameness. Where's he been this Lashley do 'cause he's GonNa lose? Lana Lana. That's going to go back to Russa. It's going to be you know the Macho Man. Mammoth Elizabeth Story Angle. Because they all that way she's going to go back because going to be happily ever after recent gets his wife back and then Russa I mean then Lashley it is doing. What's nothing again? Define the shelf. Today I saw an interview. He said he wants to. You know use this momentum to have a big mattress mattress brock listener but you have no momentum. They don't understand what people are laughing at them or and people are laughing with. I mean it is. It's bad but well you know when you talk about the attitude era. A lot of the stuff was for the most part mid card stuff. It didn't main event like like it did when it was like Stephanie Aaa lacing because obviously but I mean there were I guess there was some kind of end game even like the billion chuck stuff from that is silly. Tell us that was the I don't know what the hell the point that was. Well think about it but they just don't get why this is. There's so so much talent on this roster and we're dedicating thirty minutes and we're dedicating more time to this angle than any other angle in the W VW. This is three months now. This has been going on. I just don't see the appeal and I know they're gonna go go back. We'll the ratings and I'm like yeah well I mean it doesn't mean it's is GonNa be better. It's not necessarily what we're watching and as critical as we are of like. Aws you see stuff like this. Just like I can live with whatever he ws doing. If continue doing this crap. Oh yeah now this this is bad. And a Lotta people when I said like okay. There was some good matches their like so. Just enjoy the good matches kids and ignore this story. Lot was like no because a smart company uses the mid card in the early matches to build towards their main event. When you give me this bullshit is the main event? Why did I just sit through two and a half hours? It's bad invincible. This is bad man. This is really bad it was too long it was bad it ended on basically sh- mas because nothing really happened at the end it was like oh we still came out and cake and everybody's finding living lonner fighting and then they just went off the air. Why were they fighting? I thought they were lesbian. Lovers I don't know I don't even know if they. They know what the end game is here. It's just going to keep going US post booking week by week. Convinces loving it. I secretly think Vince has got a blue true subscription they sponsor everyone. I'm pretty sure it's got sponsored on the side and this has led to this story angle Hi It's crazy man I I I can't get over but that's all we have to start our show because it did numbers for better or worse no pun unintended because it's a wedding angle but you know it's just it's something that I feel is going to lead us to more B s story lots and the opposite of what people have been clamoring for definitely like even if you like this one for some God forsaken reason you like this one angle be prepared to see six more of these in two thousand twenty. I hope you're wrong. But what you two numbers man. Youtube the two numbers. Let's talk about pro wrestling that we're actually looking forward to and that has is hype. Let's switch gears and talk about new Japan pro wrestling and it's it's one of our favorite weeks of the year wrestle kingdom week and it's so nice to end to do it twice and we are finally getting getting hopefully the coordination of my Guy Naito but we'll get to that later. Do you want to run down the card. I talk about some of the undercard stuff on night. One was doing all right so I am skipping the tag team start a match disrespect. I'm glad start getting a match but we haven't been following stardom enough to really know what's going on there so there's eight man tag majer. Okay let's start with dude. Thunder lighter in the eight man tag match. Tiger mask is in there. I feel like this is going to be a must watch just because it's the last go around for lighter. Oh definitely and Yeah No. I think he'll probably win night. One and then lose on night to hopefully gets the pin fall on that one because Houston delighted. He's been here for as long as Mosul awesome. It's been alive. I mean should be fun. Little Fun Bachelor. This stuff will be fun. It would be stupid but I just WANNA see ligers. It'd would be good to see later. IBM ULTA ultimately would ligers given us in pro wrestling is is hard to discredit what the man has done Dan. So it's like I just want to see him have a good match I wanted. I know he's probably GonNa go out on his back but it is what it is. Yeah I mean that's the way you're supposed to go out though right so that's GonNa make for a fun. Match is ton of eight man tag matches it's insane the next one allied versus Zouqi. Goon and we have wow Suzuki's in this one sabre juniors in this one Shingo Evil Bucci a lot of talent to have an earlier in the night. Eight man man-tak match. Give Me Allied J. I feel like it's a big night for them as well I already have my criticisms matches says most people who know me know affected we have Shingo. Doesn't have a singles match. Neither does in those two should be having a singles match somewhere night one night two Nada who I thought was getting a huge push. Well Sonatas time will eventually come but again there's just a lot of talent here here But I just think somebody singles and told me he are two guys who are no fraternity house down. You don't necessarily need to be a in a in a tag match on both nights so it is what it is. I think the match will be fun even as I say junior is kind of crazy. He's I think he wrestles. It was a night to yeah. He wrestles Sonata nights for the referee British title. which is great but yeah I I don't like that's my biggest? Gripe the single. When you see you don't have a singles match theirs? Feels like the easiest thing you could have put together to tear the house down. Whatever I'm going to pick right along? which and then second eight man tag match or the next one up Chaos with a Goto you she yano Yoshi Hashi versus bullet club the latest insulation which is a Kenta bad luck. Fale Chase Owens and Takahashi Kinda like the B. Team Bullet Club outside of cancer but can't ask a win this right like they have to keep him strong. It's his first wrestle kingdom back in back his first wrestle kingdom ever have like he has to be strong on night one. I expect Kenton to pick up to pinch definitely. I think it is a one to go over. Here I don't know this feels like the match that you know we didn't we don't we're not seeing Shibata and I thought we might see about wrestle kingdom based on the Anglesey they had earlier this year Shibata might show up in one of these nights and have some kind of evolving. If it's not going to be terribly physical just be good to see him so I think we'll pick up the win against chaos. That's just seems the way to go. I feel like you kinda jumped ahead of me with the Shibata prediction. But we'll save that for night. To so to be continued on that prediction next up guerrillas a destiny Tama Tonga and Tongan Loa versus versus. Shoot Finn juice juice. Robinson David findlay come on gorillas destiny where it is ridiculous. The heavyweight tag division of the normal tax evasion in new Japan really needs overall. They lost a lot talents. We thought for a second maybe the club would be going back but they read up. I don't see any any other departing. WWe Tag teams really fitting that mold. I don't know where they go for talent because we've seen them revamp kind of that that Juniors tag division and they lost the ball but they they really work that out fine SHOWING YO L A ton but I don't see where they're going to get yet another good tag team. I mean I agree with you. I'm picking guerrillas Desi as well. I mean philly juice good nice little the story but I really don't care I mean it could potentially be a good match but not necessarily looking forward to it but you're absolutely right like this. Division used used to be one of the hottest and pro wrestling period. When he talks you? Had you know I mean war-machine stopped through their like. They had a ton of tally now. Guerrillas gorillas destiny versus wherever they can piece together. So yeah I'm picking guerrillas destiny here but yeah this division need some help. I remember at one time gorilla a destiny. Red Dragon the box and In in gallows and Anderson all. They're crazy game. They haven't replenished at all. So yeah. That's that's going to be taught it and the other guys aren't big anyway right. So it's hard to read revamped as division when a lot of young lion guys aren't really big is either and we've seen even wants Nada versus guerrillas destiny to Nauseam at this point. Yeah you can't run that back again. Yes so the next match this is where business picks up Texas death match for the item you. GP United States Championship Lance Archer versus Jon Moxley Archer one because Moxie had the staph half infection. The last time couldn't compete so moxie is coming back. I mean only be one by a ten headcount knock out or is it says. Boxing does avenue submissions. So somebody's getting knocked out. I'm going to say arbiture archer wins. But it'll be interesting because I don't know how you cool down Jon Moxley. You don't match no because I think he's not going to stay with new Japan. Like how much is he going to be either. He doesn't have to be restless night to where he would probably drop the title. The juice Robson. Oh I mean juice juice to lose to girl as a destiny exactly you oh you lose the tag title match and you pick up a title against in something that was supposed to happen about five months ago. So a figure that's the route they may go but you never never know because there could be a whole thing going on here that that we have yet to talk about between aws new Japan where there is like a minor league talent share. So you never. I just don't think Max's losing Lance Archer. Just think these to kill each other on a night one but I don't think there's any way that you can have Moxie lose the match and not show up at night too whenever you see Moxley and death match in the same sentence as much watch. TV so that's going to be crazy right after that that after they clear the ring of all the debris. We're GONNA get well asprey versus Takahashi or this could be matching the night but no myself back. Maybe Kotobuki on the car do so. I can't just commit and say this is going to be matching shore. But do I think this is GonNa get the title back though then. I think it's tough. Yeah and I think it's time for will ask to be a legitimate heavyweight and makes that run Tara down in Tasha winning the title after the terrible injury will be one of the best in wrestling. Yeah that's the Raj got you Kinda gotta around don't you. Yeah you gotta go out and then I expect to show respect the handshake but yeah all that good stuff. But they're going to tear the house down. Takahashi was taken crazy custodian self on the floor. I was like my man. You just got back from a neck injury almost career ending. He didn't care. You went from zero hunting so this this is gonna be nuts. I expect it to be full sprint. The whole time and you talk to win. It's a feel good moment of night. One there so yeah let the man win. I think that's good in Australia. Like you said it's due for a jump up the ladder. And I think he's been grooming itself to that. So this is a good sign aura. Laura to the junior division for we'll aspirin in the next match Jay white versus Naito Intercontinental Championship. I won't hold you. Naito's went in the shit. They sling blade. Thanks for holding the title given give up this gold as exciting night to be one hell of a night. Yeah I agree. I think I think nights was going over here. J. White has I think he's kind of turned the corner this year his match with Busey at GE wound was phenomenal. I think these are going to turn into a hell of a performance but I think it's absolutely only time for night so you were pissed off two years ago when NATO lows the CADA. There's two stories this stories at play here. That could play out and I'll explain them on ninety I too but a access for the main event but I think no matter what NATO needs to win. You did this. For a reason I think in some ways people are not necessarily expecting this. They're they're respecting the coronation Kota Bucci and I think we're going to different way mentioning color. Bushy she many vents Okada versus a bushy ALGA. I don't even want to predict the accede to going both ways. Exactly I want want to happen is for Okada to win. I this we got to talk a feel good moment right. I don't need two of them. I don't need Bucci Chambi. NBA feel good moment. I Want Okada to prove like he's always been the top guy in the company Daggett and we'll get to that but let Okada Cada win. Liam still be this unbeatable presence at Wrestle Kingdom make this his event Mike it always is on on night one and have them go over on Bucci and set up the Okada Nigel. Rematch for nights. AG- Oh boy it's tough Eh. It's really tough for me because I I see exactly what you're saying but I'm kind of leaning towards a Busey to win this match but then you get the built in excuse again that can't be Okada nowy the hell with it. I don't want them running back next year. Either mayhem right the wrong well. Here's why here's the other thing. Thank because there's a lot more juice on a rematch with Jay White. For Okada's member Okada Lost Ajay Way last year. Yup and you put the J. Wine Okada rematch on night two has juice and then we've seen what nights busey did when they rested last time. These two damn their killing each other with Jer with dragon super lessons on the edge of April so I could see I could definitely see both ways but I do see that. There's a little bit more there in terms of that. Second match with Okada Okada Jay white than it would be a Boucher even though that's a rematch of what is almost five-star Max at g one between those two but I would go with bushy but I honestly don't care. Just give me a good match. That's all I really want. They're going to be good matches like we don't this isn't. WWe Is not main roster. Her we're going to get good matches. Wrestle Kingdom wrestle kingdom like looking at this three five star matches I don't know how people pulled judge Texas death matches but this might be the Kudarat that too so night one is going to be crazy and then we get to come back for night to which we have a bunch of people in a gauntlet match which will open up the night than you touched on it. We have Lugar in a tag team match. which is his retirement match After that and Takahashi's in that one which which is interesting. Maybe Takahashi pins lager. And that's like the the passing of the torch. Perhaps it'd be cool moment like all right. It's a good person Pinot if you if you think he's going to lose that match so that's on there and then Tag Match for the junior heavyweight typing championships which a issue Maurienne phantasmal versus show. and Yo- at you. It's going to be fun just because of the spots. Oh yeah and I could show in Yo when the belts back I think so too. A man El Fantasma. He's one of those guys that I don't WanNa say. He necessarily reminds me a Kenny Omega when he first showed up but he kind of does in the sense that he's got charisma he can wrestle. He does it all and he seems like. He's kind of biding his time as a bully club member before he just kinda takes off so I I feel like once and maybe this is the path we're going I feel like Republi three KS GonNa get back fantastic gonNA put a tremendous performance and I think super junior's is is where we really see phantasmal turn up to. I would probably pick issue Maury to win super junior's this year. If I had to over phantasmal biting he's GonNa Showa Just just he's got so much talent and it seems like I'm not saying he's been underutilized but I think they're just kind of waiting to unleash is that do and he's had some phenomenal matches already. But yeah these guys just GONNA everybody's GonNa kill each other a bunch of flippy shit everything that you like about pro wrestling and I love I love you and showing you titles back so Yeah I like that show on your show out like I said this tag. Eighteen division is fine. The Junior tag team division is good the the normal. I have my reservations about It's actually June nervous Sonata. Their Championship match junior to retain good is Sonata. Going to do with the British I relieve championship. hugos offended housing. Go over. I think this is. I don't want to say it's the coordination it's not an either because everybody's been kinda close even sabre ahead is his great times but I feel like there's nothing wrong. It's not getting this title and defending it at ref pro so I'm GonNa Take Sonata here in one great technical match. That's but the skull will be Virginia. Lose by submission. Semesters special so lose by submission like that. It's not bad. I see it going either way so again technical match. It's going to be nice after spot fest. That was the tag team championship match. It's it's cool to get a little bit back and forth United States Championship match Jews Robinson versus who you think will be Jon. Moxley is say is probably going to be archer. Sure if it's Moxley than yeah. I think juice goes over on just because they're Jews. Bt The one right like like choose over the past like four months has grown on me a little bit his run through the tournament it was good at least cut the stupid as hair. I still don't get the gimmick but the the short hair works a little better for them out. I'm not choose Robinson the guy but I could see him when the title back. Why not? I could see him winning the title back if the if there's no working relationship ship with a w a new pan if there is Moxie should win but Yeah it'll probably be juice for L. E. B. Twos and and in a strange way. It's kind of unfortunate because I don't really WANNA see juice with title. I'd rather be archer remarks linked but I don't think that's what we're absent yet. And then a couple of people from our wage sign deals to go to new Japan. Kinda like Jeff Cobb. Isn't he supposed to be their permanent not now. I don't know what's going on to be honest with you would Jeff Cobb just knows about our allegiant. General they're like they're hanging on by Pinky they really are and it really trashed yes. I don't know Jeff Cobb would be a great person to feud for United States Championship. Dan Ship going forward if they WANNA shake stuff up and then the next match Kenta versus Goto Open Weight Championship. Kent is GonNa Win Again. No reason to cool down and I think this is where we see the few take off again probably right you are probably right but Yeah I'M GONNA say the same thing that you said. It just feels like it just feels like it's time for I mean he's been going over. Goes in a weird spot. He's always been in a weird spot when he won g one like six seven years ago the guy on the planet. He's always been like the guy can't win the big one and he probably loses this one too so yeah I'm going kanter and then singles does match it's the loser's bracket of the maple four from the icy match and the heavyweight title match. I'm going to say I'll go with your theory. Okada versus white just because they have more history than a bushy versus white Either way thing Jay white loses again. Yeah somebody gotta take two hells Jay White taken to wells. It's you know it's so crazy because Gen Y.. Could win this match and I wouldn't be bothered at all like back. Toback Elza Wrestle Kingdom. Be Crazy right but I don't think it's going to happen. I thank God it's GonNa win but Jay White J. Wise improved so much over the past year like he's really improved. I wouldn't be surprised. I mean it. It was weird because he beat Tallahassee two years ago and it was like a bill early. Yeah then he wanted to tell you. Beat Okada Wrestle Kingdom and he won the title it was like all right then g one it was like Whoa okay. These having a good run came from behind got to the finals loss of phenomenal match with the Bucci and Dan. He feels like he's on the coast. Not He'll never be Kenny O.. Mega words but he feels pretty close. I just think perhaps a really great dynamic massive between those two probably right Okada revenge on J wife-beating last year but it could be another story there. It could be J. Y.. Going over and over campaign Jay White. That's another story. They could have the story like Oh Khanaqin beat someone the FBI. I for that one. And then Singles match Tana Hashi versus Jericho and. I would pick Chris Jericho to win win this. Nothing online accepts Tana High. She gets a shot at the eighty he w championship if he wins this and I think it will happen at the next eight w pay per view because as much as this thing is going in a w they really haven't pulled the trigger on Jericho defending his title against them. No No oh you're right. Yeah I love the Tana High. She in a in a w I think it'd be amazing to see him at a revolution in February worry taken on Jericho. Hopefully that's around. They go because that would really put their pay per view over in the Moxie thing it can wait. It can kinda way eh because time with that my my actually could beat the shit out of What's his face was not even wrestling and that'd be hager? Whatever his name is now we the people? He's not wrestling. I'm actually do something. Earn a paycheck and versus Moxley. In what would be his first aid. W match is a pretty good match for a paper. Yeah definitely definitely I can buy time on that no need to rush. Putting the belt on much'll either Iguana goes on fire and I think that's the other thing it's like you know it's time for Jerko lose so why not why not brinton. ICM TO LOSE have have actually go over here and then lose in the next. Why not ah I WANNA see it not make sense and then we have the heavyweight championship match? which in our fantasy booking scenario would be a Bouche Iverson nights in which I Kinda WanNa see Okada in there just because two years ago but nonetheless champion versus champion match and I think it's even sweeter because NATO's going to end the night holding both belts up? Yeah Disagreement Noguchi no coronation of Kotobuki. I think it's time to give the people what they've been asking for and people have been asking for this so it's time give to give it to me. That's what I yeah. You don't pull the trigger now. I don't know when it happens like this is the time to do do it so I mean. We have two nights packed full of wrestling feel like each night is what like five hours. I I know it might have been last year year before you suggested. They split up Wrestlemainia as well. I hate that idea. 'cause I couldn't imagine doing this for two nights H. for Wrestlemainia because the cards are not this stacked no not at all. And it's bizarre. The people I mean I always say it because it's so long honestly. wrestlemanias is just be streamlined. Just being much more to show on top of that Wrestlemainia shouldn't be like it's now. It feels like wrestlemanias not even wrestlemainia anymore. Because the Saudi shows are like Wrestlemainia. They don't even mean the same anymore. Even we'll be there we're GONNA go to Wrestlemainia. Of course it doesn't have that same feeling. And yes I suggested adjusted but yeah thinking about sitting through two nights of WW. That are like five hours long and then having to go to raw and smackdown. I can't fathom it really can't yeah yeah that's I. I'm not sure if I'm going smackdown that Friday. I'M GONNA NOT F- Friday like we'll find the indy show in. Just chill or as mania that night on Thursday. Are Studying floor shows on Friday Friday. Yup for the coaches on Friday along with our panel and think let sports Thursday night at the same time as well. That sucks I wanted to go to bloodsport but you know I. I'm down. Watch any INDIE show on Friday instead of smackdown hotel the next day And then of course NFC. And then. I'm not staying for the Monday after raw so God bless everyone who will still be there. I'll be on my way back to Hartford because as I will be missing my bed by that point own. Yes so that is how we wrapped up our Japan preview next week I kind of kick into our awards for the decade in the year to wrap up the show Where do we start? Let's see let's start with the decade start wide. Go narrow your wrestler your male wrestler of the decade twenty ten through now. Because it's it's okay is the rest of the decade. I know some people say well. What about Kenny? Now can't give is carrying after I mean look what he's done over the past decade yet Kennedy had hot two and a half years. Yeah I mean Kenny as a phenomenal wrestler. But he didn't turn it on to the second half but Okada speedy. Don't we have this argument in boxing or something already all under the shows we had this decade argument. It's the second half only when we talked about that with Amanda with Amanda Newness so when when you look at what would Okada has done in. Who's done it against? It's like dude. I mean he's the other half of those Kenya Omega matches. He was put on phenomenal wrestle. Kingdom maximums with China Hassi like he had a phenomenal mess with aspirin. This year is actually junior title run. He's just been amazing. So Yeah Gimme Okada as wrestler of the decade. I would also pick a Okada if I had to but to not be you know just status Atas quo into add some filler. To the show I am going to then pick a day styles. His run through ooh New Japan And even before he got to Japan so he's been in. What three different promotions decade? Tom Guy in three different ones. He had the best debut this decade in the WWe with Royal Rumble debut. He held the belt longer than punk and set the record for the length of time as WWe champion he was main main eventing wrestle kingdom like so much that he did all man him versus Nakimora in in New Japan his leader the bullet club. He's done so much in so many different platforms that I can give. Aj Styles even though entering Okada Outta has been better. Play if you count everything. Different promotions on the Mike Characters Gimmick. 'cause Okada is amazing thing. He had nothing as big as the bullet club. So I gotta give it to eight hundred dollars. Yeah I'm not. I see what which saying if I had to make dark again if we're picking just object. I'd probably put Okada number one but the play devil's advocate K J styles has just as good of a resume. He will see. That's the that's the hard part because thing about eighty styles is you know aside from the Comoran mentioned wrestle kingdom eight thousand other well he said if you great matches this decade was Okada when he when he beat Okada for the title. I feel like okay. Let's been at the center of every every great wrestler whose nine wwe's best matches. It's always been okay. That's true but a lot of what we mentioned his in ring in ring in ring if if you go overall. Aj styles character baby face 'em he'll AJ styles gotten over and been champion. Yeah he's done in multiple modes like there's a case to be made that if you can't overall so of Okada's a ten out to ten in ring age as what eight and a half and then you compare output of ring promos carrot. There's an ag if he's a ten on that scale six so oh God six nine. Gino helped Okada eight hundred eight thousand meter manager. I mean just recently. He didn't need a manager anymore. You gotta remember like for a long time age. It was a terrible promo. He didn't Ooh. Yeah this decade. I would say you didn't need a manager. I'm not talking like you know. Two Thousand Eight hundred thou- like Super Country Country Bumpkin this eight no-no Okada for a lot of this needed. A manage thinking Enid a manager. I think it's just like back now. I'M GONNA disagree with you again. I like what. Aj Styles is done. But I just think when we talk about a guy who is carried because he's carried new Japan on his back he is literally carry that promotion on his back in if anybody else was champion aside from him Tallahassee. Who's the other guy you could talk about wrestling a decade? It wouldn't be the same from the ring entrance to his journey to getting the title from Tallahassee. Because remember he couldn't beat on the early part of the decade. You could beat him. He's had the storylines angle I I'm with you on a lot of what ages thousands done but I think Okada storytelling. The ring has been brilliant. I can't pick anybody but Okada I can't be mad at that. I can't be mad at. He would again be my pick but there's a case to be made so I can see why people why people we'll go. Aj Styles Outside of those two though. I'm not giving anyone else who shot. The eighth is close but I think those two on a different level for this decades in terms of superstars I mean well I think I think the aces in the conversation. Yeah Yeah I mean. He's a third but he's not like a neck and neck third I would say it's an economic third. I think what he's doing overall is like I mean this is Ado. We've written off. So many times he continues can use have phenomenal matches like he's he. Is that damn good so I think he belongs in there. I'm giving Takada but I think you have a case return. Is your agency injury styles as the rest of the decade. I don't think it's that cut and dry. I would say yeah. I can't disrespect as I can't i. It's a two horse race with him a little bit behind but yeah I mean again. He beat Okada's asks for like six ten in years this decade and Okada since two thousand sixteen is too you know like that was always. The story line is that he couldn't be him. So what can I say And the guy does deserve to be in the conversation. Female Wrestler of the decade is a little tougher. It's almost impossible because females goes in even matter until recently we got we got a judge from what we have like the UFC when did females started mattering in the UFC. And we can doc ID twenty four two thousand twelve yes Ronn. I mean think about it because you still had cyborg Gina Carano. Oh like Rhonda runs runs. Started at the early two thousand ten so you you can make a case. Because they were making. Their presence felt women's wrestling was a little bit different because w. w. dominated the scene. New Japan didn't have any women. rebounders women were whatever. It's so it was really the W. W. Annex t really really bringing women to prominence so that being said I mean he had some impact had like I'm sorry women's division but it was late it was later in the decade so it was like no even before W B before Annex T. TNA gotten talent down there and their women's division I would argue it was better than wwe's earlier in the decade. Oh absolutely because a women's revolution start in really Kim. Right like gale was there. Yes Gail Oh Kim was the one who really carry the knockouts division on her back us calm. Is there briefly yet they. They had a better wrestling wrestling talent from women early in the decade. So you case to be made that there was some things but yeah it Kinda starts with an exterior twenty fourteen. So Oh with that. I guess you gotTa Go Charlotte Flare Go with the boss. I can see that a lot of love the boss. I just can't stay healthy this year in six months. She has three of the best. Five women's batches this year in six months. We're just talking about a decade. We're talking about an entire decade. She has the best. Women's is match this decade. One happened Bakili one. She's one half of the best and if I listened to ten and best women's matches this decade. I think she's in six. Maybe it's a little hard because it just feels like it's this is a weird category because it's dominated by W W Women Charlotte has been pushed to the moon Charlotte had a great match. Becky that really put Becky on the Bat. You know what I'm going to agree with. Goes Oscar banks because now now I'm thinking about it because the Bailey matches like nobody. Nobody has any better than having a match with. Sasha banks versus OSCO was wildly underrate light. But you know yeah you're making me really think about this. Sasha banks whenever she wrestle somebody like barely kind of sucks without Sasha banks thanks Charlotte. Charlotte is really good without Sasha base but her sausage took it to another level SASA in Tout Sasha in Shasha in a wooden crate wrestle anybody in damage a good match even when she has several batches because it happens was she still puts on like ineffective graddick performance. And you're right. The Brooklyn is the best one is a massive. We've had I wish ask you got here a little bit early and I got to see more in the indie scene in Japan. They did so. I can't really necessarily put it there but asked us one of the best. I didn't see enough of her either. Cancel raise a woman who was killing lead in PWG. But I don't think people saw enough of her before the wwe now she's finally getting her run an extinct so it's like it's hard. It is hard to pick a woman because everybody ups and downs with the constants have been Charlotte size banks. I'M NOT GONNA put Bailey with Becky leads in that conversation. Okay how hot becky Lynch's. She's got the Rodeo becky lynch she caught fire with the man gimmick but Nah the in ring. She's she's not the caliber those two not all not a it. Mike you said Oscar. A lot of her stuff just isn't visible. But we've heard tales of Oscar being the best women's wrestler alert for seven years. Damn near of this decade they said emission came over and she continued to dominate an annex t and then even so on the main roster. She's going this weekend to be the Grand Slam champ or excuse me not this weekend but at the rumble. Yep so that's one Helluva career career by her so she's definitely in the conversation as well so it it'll be interesting but I gotta give it to the boss there. The other category and For a decade is tag team of the decade. Because I felt like I had to separate this way from the male and female categories. I mean come Ahmad. It's the young books they rebel interest of the decade. Who's been deputy shit? I thought you were going new day at the new the new day no no tag team of the decade like who was put on more five star tag team matches in most remark which is in the yellow box. Yeah no one like you can't even Indians. This is probably the easiest award to so now. Yeah and I love doing. I think they're fantastic faxing. But we're talking about inr in you what they've done come on the. The young bucks revolutionized the Indie Seen Red Dragon would be second. Possibly Japan are wage work in the now. The damn near put on you. You know to four and a half and above matches annex t this year. Yeah I mean you have them. I mean Russo's have been amazing this year. Well not this year because D. wise is but previous years decade CRA. It's it's young bucks man and anybody who wants to argue against it you're crazy we're talking entire entire decade of excellence. We've redefined acting wrestling. Nobody gave us you about taxing wrestling until the young bucks really came around just took over monkeys. I love it. Yeah now so I I agree young Bucks Young Bucks got that I'm GonNa have to hit up a dude in a group chat. Yeah just an ivy though and ask them because he might take deluce rose. You never know. It's lleras that's a year thing like we're talking about ten years eight years. Bugs have been killing shit. Yeah now the bucks tag team of the decade match of the decade. Come on. There's always one. She's he's filling here so all time. Okada Omega four gray dispatch I've ever seen in my life. Unbelievable we agree. I know other people are going to say dumb shit. It's incredible that some people would never watch new Japan. I'm just Ezekiel which best matched they don't care like. I don't know how you choose without watching it. It's the greatest match Versi do argue and hip hop with somebody. You like. It's like argument hip hop maybe ten fifteen years ago with people who just listened to the radio. That's that's what the equivalent of arguing. Like W W 'cause it'd be like like oh no fifty cents like the greatest wraparound time. Do what like. There's so much of the music out there. There's so much pro wrestling out there. And that's why I always equate like underground hip hop the. CW is like because the best wrestlers with they're the best matches were there but a lot of people just didn't get to see him and right now we're in a day and as where like you have the opportunity to watch everything because everything is available to you and some people just choose not to and the ride with. W W 'cause that's the only thing they know because the production values amazing and this on national television but the best restless aren't being utilized properly and WBZ not that they're not in the wwe because they're they're it's like your favorite rapper. Underground rapper got signed to a major label and made a bunch of radio songs. And that's what happens. WWE Some guys get over some guys. Don't it's weird but it's amazing. People will not give New Japan this credit and I'll never understand it. I don't know but as if they sit down and watch it. I don't understand if someone wants to watch it. That's the first match put on and I know we're watching all an hour of of this year. I don't care we're not moving. No bathroom breaks. But you're gonNA watch his greatness. So yeah that's the bestmattressever seen so obviously match the decade switching gears finish off match of twenty nineteen to bring it into tighter scope. What would your match of this year? ASPIRIN SHINGO I wanted to go in and I was like I've liked Lottomatica but that match was it. Aspirin shingle is imagine the year. That's talk because I lost my shit when that match And we all know. I love battles super junior's. I don't know if that was. I'm just trying to make sure that that was matching the a year because I feel like Kenny Omega before he left New Japan had a match fucking nuts. And I can't remember Hassi match but I don't I feel like the shingle aspirin match is the best match of the year drama. Everything and you know. It's really strange. Strange what are we talking about rest of the year which will talk about in a minute Shingo head but he was he should be in the conversation but people kind of forget. He's like the other half like when people talk about Kenny Omega in Okada was the other half of that shingle was other half of the the rematch. Shingle was also the other half of g one when him and Itchy tore the house down shingles a guy who is it doesn't hold a title. He's not he's he's lumped in tag matches this weekend but when you let the guy go one on one tears a house now but he won a blue Lucio Cada mattress fucking nods. You do the job that really unreal believable and sadly the hottest like that finished the final stretch and the final stretch with Adam Colin Gargano Gargano at at New York. Where we when we were there? All Yeah Yeah don't mind. My only problem is I've said a Billion Times with Gargano Adam Cole. What was that? It was two of three falls and it took us a minute to get to that hot ass vinyl stretch so only thing that hurt that match. Maybe my hurry because we still phenomenal. Max But I think aspirin in single was there were balls to the wall from the jump and just take the guard Gano coal match. Just 'cause we were there in that feeling was just just fucking nuts like I saw you in your seat. You're losing your shit losing my fucking mind like on the near falls euro. You are just going crazy everyone. Everyone was the atmosphere was fucking nuts. I'll go with that one again. Just to play devil's advocate but man. Those are two of the best matches touches. A man noser fucking good so yeah I think those is one. Am One be so we throw that. It's a tossup let's go for it gets rustled year breakout star. Twenty nine hundred breakout star twenty. Nineteen you go first. I'm going to surprise you because he owns guys not like Super Hot. Tori hasn't done what he probably could like. Okay well whatever I am I still think in terms of just being put on the map that it and I don't know I said it. Mike Guys Pronoun but not really I think is the breakout star of the year twenty-three-year-old wrestler who was thrown and does into the main roster whipped. Everyone's asking main roster talk about her and Sasha like you know she went to being Mostert how one hell of a match came down. She got the best match out of Shane. Obeys ler possible. Symbol and Shane was still fuck in singles matches. You're right they put on a clinic and Rio Twenty three sorry I think. She's the breakout star and she. She won that award the past three months. Yes yeah it's tough. It's hard for me to put Rear Ripley ahead of Bianca. Bianca is really good. Positional breakout necessary. Well that's always going to be the problem with W W right. It's like you look at the talent you like. Why isn't this person wasn't getting over? It's not like velveteen dream. So another guy but it's like do you count them as breakout. 'cause I know you look at guys. You go like a like ricochet. He's out of breakout guy. He's been out anymore. Yeah like two years ago man. So it's gotTa look at a younger talent who's just getting you know really cutting their teeth. I would Australian that conversation either by the way. No you can't the guy's been here. Technically some people might be like Oh. His breakout account a heavyweight. Like he's left the kind of junior circuit but I still don't count you know it's like it for me. It's like I liked real ripley pick bianca then there's somebody like Darby out An Orange Cassidy. Mt Might Consideration in EMS AF is. Well well it's really hard like this breakout is really hard because it's like Windy County. It's like it's like the award shows whenever like rookie of the year. And it's like a guy's already take three albums. Yeah you know chance of rapid rookie of the year. But it's like duty asser wrapping ten days like House keithly. Keithly one breakout star by the way annex t award art beat single even like Matt Riddle is a guy who has kind of been around. So we're I I don't know breakout star of the year. That person takes that next huge. Step Yeah I mean I'm not GonNa Pick Ria just because I don't feel like I'm Gonna I'm GonNa go beyond because I just think Bianca's made such great strides and I know the I mean they didn't necessarily put her position with the girl shows out every time she shows up. I'M GONNA GIVE BIANCA IT's not bad true prophets wearing my consideration as well took a hell of a job job in terms of being attacked. CARB show on the main roster knock when they won the titles. That reaction by the crowd was Jedi so now clearly year for twenty nineteen Female I got the female wrestlers twenty. You know who it is we are not. It's not. Yeah sure I I'd love he'll ear. I love it. It's Beckley. No here's why this is why Becky Lynn was nuclear hot right Keeps us a mine. Becky Lynn was nuclear hot from September of last year survivor series when it really got hot and December and then she won the world rumble the bills from the royal rumble. Two WRESTLEMAINIA was lost a lot of steam. And you have to give Rhonda a lot a lot of credit for how that match built up and especially that car wreck thing where they were out story. Yeah but becky Lynch's injuring his kind of stunk for the second. Half of this this year he'll Sarai he'll eat. Oh It's been amazing in ring has been phenomenal so so I'm giving it personally. I'm beginning to Becky's who they strapped rocket to and she's still the champ in everything but we said it like three times we gotta talk about Becky's injury in upset and for like at least a half of this year it hasn't been up to snuff. She hasn't had great matches train. Wreck of a match with Alicia Fox after Wrestlemania Russell me. I know I'm the sailing years racket. Carry a Chris has to a great match. I'm giving feels rock even without the title. See I guess. I could have thought Shane but not Shane either. And I wasn't solicit this about saying as much as we sit here and this has turned a corner in the past six months she survivor series time. I thought that's where the likely but even before then I thought they were hiding her and multi t- matches so because the one on one match to start to stink it was the same formula and the and someone different and then survivor series. It kind of clicked in now. We are where we are and even outside of Becky. I just haven't watched it's enough but it's very easy to say that Tessa Blanchard could also be the woman of the year. You know what I didn't even think about that. She's damaged go for the main title. She competed for the main title in CNN. I didn't even really think about that. You're absolutely right I think. Yeah Yeah if you gotta give it somebody I I. It's probably should be tested blanchard. Because he's been really good. Wow just beating that drum in her semi Callahan has had some crazy matches. Yeah I'm GONNA go again. Yeah now I think about those matches he had as well as much as I. Love Riot. yeah you can give you flip me too do i. That's it I gotta give it to just entering. You shouldn't Becky Lynch so much on the in ring that it made me come to grips and say you know what you're right the characters. There's still great to me but the entering isn't there Tesla has yes. He really does so female wrestling. Tessa Blanchard Male wrestler of the year. I think I know where you're going with. This man is always said it since the beginning of the year like he has a slow down at all he had the match of the year. He's wrestling. I know a lot of people love to Pick Adam Cole mad at that but this will spray co baby fucking will. We'll ask me started off so hot though. I'm not sure Adams not hasn't cooled off yet. Yeah but Adam Cole. His tough Adam. Cole's best matches have been tied Johnny Gargano. Even though he had a great match Daniel Bryan his best matches has been tied. Johnny Gargano will asprey has had matches with Okada CIAMPA. Yeah he had a good match. But I don't think Adam Cole like Adam Cole is is too because I'll I'll take aspirin Okada an aspirin in Shingo Shingo over any coal Gargano matches Asthma Shingo. I understand Australia Okada. Cada I think Gargano in Col- ups that one I think those are the two best matches and I think those are the two best guys this year. So I think you could flip flop hovering Juan on but then I'll tell you another one aspirin a Bucci one. I loved them match. That's that's my the issue of coal. It's not even an issue with the only thing that makes because Cole had great message builder again on which means you. Kinda gotTA give Gargano to for having those great matches Cole. Oh Ashtrays is done with different people. So it's not the right dance partner. He's just that good so I'm giving and he's had a lot more time to do wrestler wrestler Chit but in the ring like G. One alone. He went through super junior's G. One it gives them so many matchups and chances to have incredible credible matches that Cole can't even compete with the sheer opportunity. So Oh as crush everything I'll give it to us right to again if I bring in stuff. Outside of inner ring it helps Kohl's case a little bit but even then I think I'll Chris Character. His grown leaps bound this year and him like implementing a heavyweight skillset. He has that Shit. Where like He? You know slices people's heads Ed la off entrance incredible his who said he's changed so now. We'll asprey wrestler of the year. We gotTA agree Sorry Adam Cole. Maybe next year here. And then that's it for our of twenty nine thousand nine list before we get out of here because we're running a little long on his show if you had to pick wrestler of the next decade who is your guests be a decade. Oh my God I think we did am boxing taxing as well But wrestler the next decade. You obviously aged come into We'll offer you think he's the guy who takes the leap in carries very possible. He's still young. I think he's only like twenty three. It's not an easy pick I. I just can't think of anybody else. WHO's that young who's doing what he's doing Yeah the the list is short. I will go again. I don't know where Osprey ends what's up. I don't know if he leaves New Japan. Five years on you know. He tries his valor. Hand goes to. WWE and exterior is hard to predict. I'm going to say I genuinely think this is a guy who becomes champion in the next five years and he's only like twenty three twenty four. I'm going you say pete done is probably my guy for the next ten years. I'm not matter. It's a weird like pro wrestling so weird because it's all about like where you end up. WHO GIVES YOU EH Lotto tough and again age? No I take that back. I love pedone. Take back Velveteen Dreams my restless in ten years. He's twenty four. Just W with that character. I understand is not the traditional additional role for black people. But he's the next one to buck that trend I think he becomes the guy or one of the guys in a wwe. Over the next extend years I can see it actually but I'm still stick with my pig as long as the only problem. We'll ask where he can't do. His style forever is going to slow him down offers he said that about. Aj Styles this true. That's that's real. A transition enough like Osprey has done. Yeah we'll see damned kills asprey does stuff like Di di again they said that about. Aj in two thousand in six hundred thousand ain't GonNa last law on hold. He's wrestling at forty one. So I agree crazy not any no one in a w made our list. No it just got here all right just letting you know. Hello Moxie could have been somewhere on here. That's why the bucks made it a decade. Yeah so so you know like as Darby guy well. He's kind of small but a lot of guys man. There's a lot of they w they just came on in October. So I'm not not too soon. They were close to the Rose in a young folks that was in the running as well as one of my favorite matches this year with a crazy Canadian. Destroy the top of the ladder Jason's But yeah we'll see what happens in our twenty twenty to pay attention to early do end. Thank you guys for listening listening. Low Bit longer show but a good way to close out the week and from here on out Lee shows every week. COUPLE CHANGES COMING TO THE CORNER PODCAST.

E165 Coaching A Coach That's Been Coached By Coaches

"I'm Ryan del host, a fifteen minutes to freedom your daily action guide to getting shit's done. I would love to hear from me what you love the podcast or hate it drumming, Email. Let me know. I like to correspond with people that listen, thanks for your time. Today's episodes entitled coaching, a coach that's been coached by coaches. Yes. In today's episode I'm going to share with you how easy it is to have your head. Fuck with your heart's desire. So we got this morning and start my day start my morning ritual morning ritual for those of you that don't know that maybe just new to the show or haven't heard this before I do something called the core four every day before I hit the door, some ready to go to war, and I look at truly the minute. I leave my house a world attacking me in some capacity. Attacking me for time. Attacking me for energy physically, attacking me. There's always something that I have to defend off. Notice someone not dissimilar from your own life. But in saying that this core consists of meditating and journaling and drinking a green smoothie and working up a sweat sending letters of appreciation to my wife and bonus daughter, and also reading a business book, and then journaling about how to implement that and sharing it with how it's going to be impactful in my day. So there's really eight action items, but each action item gives you half a point. So you get four points total. In this, I'll call warrior way of life which I have adopted and morphed into my own called unleash the king. So there's this hybrid in between if you wanna know more how I got that information, go to the kings kit dot com or wake-up word dot com. Some of those founded by gear Jay white. Something that's as global movement go to Amazon, grab a copy of be the man, the book like there's a whole bunch of things he's created. But in that I've taken that and made it my own. I've made it my own way of living. I've added some things to spice it up a little bit. So in that I'm I'm hitting my core for and in the midst of my core four wrapping up and I normally have my phone on do not disturb. And today was for some reason, it just didn't do it and round in the corner. I'm reading my book journey in what I'm going to implement in today's coaching practice. It's part of the book I was reading and my phone rings. My lead developer guy named Devon and Devon calls like seven, twenty and Devon never call seven twenty not because he respects the time I have. I don't even know if he knows that time met him up just the fact of him and I speak. It's typically closer to nine or ten o'clock in the morning. But he calls and we're having this conversation about some strategic marketing we're doing for my CBD company. Talk about site redesign song about Email marketing, you know, really getting marching orders for the week. And in that I just start to feel anxious. Like I realized the minute I pick up the phone in the conversation starts going down this path that I should have stopped it, not because I don't respect evident has time, but because respect my time more and until like from at four thirty in the morning, really till eight thirty, those four hours. Those are my hours. I spend time in the gym. I box I hit my core four, I lift weights like really how I put myself in wac hall, personal power. I feel massively productive when I do that. And when I let it drag on or don't get it done in a timely manner, I feel really self defeated. Now, it's not that I don't complete the work because that's not an option. Like these aren't choices. These are lifestyle things now and sure everything in life so choice. And we can debate that back and forth. But this is new operating system that is now a year and a half in the making in my personal life. Almost two years. And it's not going anywhere. It's only gonna get better and stronger. So it's a non negotiable from him. So in that I'm having this conversation with Devon, I can feel my internal animosity, boiling up. Our conversation remains impactful and meaningful and lasts for thirty five or forty minutes. Yeah, let's thirty five or forty minutes and I can't get back to knock me out of my flow. My rhythm, my cadence for my core four. So I hang up with Devon. I get back into the core for a knockout. The rest of I do then I get ready for the gym is he on Monday? Although I've been boxing five days a week. My trainer is also from a divorced household. You know, he has an ex wife or a mother of his children. Have you want to say it? So he has to drive them from one side of town to the other and can't train me in boxing at seven o'clock in the morning on Mondays. So I know I get to kind of take foot off the gas a little bit and don't have to be to the gym till eight thirty to make my day. You know, synchronous Lee continue on. So songs them out of the house by eight thirty. I'm good. Get my stuff done pack, my gym bag. Have something small to eat. I'm out the door and drawn to the gym, and I'm just frustrated. I'm fresher, they'll at my day, get away from me. I'm frustrated that I didn't see things right away. I'm frustrated. I answered the call like there's some real shit. Like I'm pissed when driving to the gym and pissing. Nobody other than myself like this is nobody's fault. I chose to of the phone. Then I chose into conversation versus on my own time and space. So Linden, I walk, you know, we don't drive together. We drive Sabir because I'm coming the office afterwards. And we pulled into lifetime fitness, pull in the parking lot. One of the guys that I coach inside of a marketing group that I run reaches out to me and just looking for some assistant, hey, man, can we have a quick phone call and I'm looking at this message and my fuck like, no, I don't want to. They know part of me wants have this phone conversation like I've already not honored my own time and commitment. And I'm so much of a people pleaser, I'm so much of doing things for other people that I, it takes conscious work to hold space and time for myself. And I've already broken that down this morning. I've already fucked us up. And so I'm looking at my phone and there's a text message, three tax messages in a row as a cry for help is not an urgent thing is like, hey, basically, brother. Can you give me shot? Here's a social media thing. I wanna do got some questions. Could you give me coffee of a second. And also this message came in at seven, forty five in the morning. Now it's give or take eight forty, five. And I'm looking and it's everything in my power just to not answer. But can't help myself because I've, I feel not only obligated, but I feel connected to this individual who also happens to be a coach. Can. So this man is a phenomenal coach coaches at a very high level has had many of the same mentors and coaches that I have had and is a kick ass guy like world class. So my man, I got a call this guy. Some tells me that you know the voice intuition, God, whatever you believe in fucking unicorn, telling me to call him. So I put on my bluetooth headset. I'm sitting in my car in the pouring down rain outside of lifetime fitness at eight forty five in the morning, and I call him. And he goes into like, man, this marketing suffer a little bit different. I thought it was. I thought this was a little bit maybe more simple. I've already had some successful events and I realize the now maybe I'm just not. I'm not. I'm not at the level. I thought I was at. And he starts going down this pit of despair. This rabbit hole of doubt. About is he qualified to lead in coach other men? He saying this from a position that he has already been doing this, but he's exposed to new stimuli which is me. And as I'm sharing with them how to internet market on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, having a podcast like, how do you brand? How do you message? What level of consistency and frequency in hashtags in running funnels name something were covering it over a twelve week course super deep dive stuff. This is not high level like, oh, here's what Instagram does this tactical deployment stuff. These are things to grow seven-figure coaching business. Again, the way the we live inside of wake-up warrior or inside unleash the king are inside any of these men's coaching practices. They're all coaches in their own right. None of us are playing small. None of us want to play at one hundred thousand dollar level and there's nothing wrong. If that's the level you're at. Like I'm not disparaging. There's a process. We all go through. There's a process to have. You can stabilize one hundred thousand dollars a year in income. You're not ready to handle million dollars until you've coached one person. You're not really ready to coach ten in your certainly not ready to coach fifty. But he has already done this. He's already experienced success. And so we're going through this. He's saying like, look, I think I need to recalibrate. I think you need to pause my coaching. I think you need to jump back into an push the gas puddle of the floor on my on my main business. Wait till that levels itself up. Wait till it gets higher and higher. Wait till, you know what? I'm making a million dollars a year there, and then I can come back and recalibrate and focus on my coaching. And I get it like literally tell him, I understand exactly where you're coming from. 'cause that doubt that little man in our head, the one that we have to tell to go fuck off quite often is always present. Stagnation and comfort is something that is prevalent and president. All of our lives like it is not comfortable to get outside of your box. And as we dive deeper into this marketing world, it's outside of his box. And so I'm sharing like I get where you're coming from. Like I've been there. Like I'm not ashamed to say it. I'm I'm not a multimillionaire. I don't know that I've ever made a million dollars a year before, but I've also never claimed to. What I have claimed. And what I do share is my absolute truth every day. My truth can change from day to day. My truth as of Sunday was a fact I post on social media because I'm looking for interaction engagement. I'm also looking to impact a million people's lives. Maybe one day I'll get to the point where I truly never look back and see if someone like my photo. Maybe that day will come, but that day is not happening right now. Right now it's still matters. Then I share very openly. It matters for handful of reasons matters because when I post something on Instagram, if more people like it in a short period of time, it reaches more people. Instagram's algorithm gives you a digital wait. If more people comment on that post more people see it, why does more people seeing a matter what matters because of more people see it than I can spread my reach out and I can eventually impact million people's lives in a more. Strategic manner. And then the third reason is because of ego. Like I want to know the message I'm putting the marketplace matters. I wonder if that resonates with people. I wanna see my engagement about five percent. There's some things I want to see because of who I am and how I am wired. That was my truth from Sunday. Today. I wake up on my truce a little bit different. I don't care about social media today. I literally put a block on my iphone now there's something called screen time on a new iphone. It's frigging mind-blowing, I can separators I can use my my social media for thirty five minutes a day. I'm you can set if whatever time you want to. But I pick thirty five minutes maybe thirty seven minutes. So I said at this morning and I was shocked at how quick I burn through thirty seven minutes. So in that a Michael shit, I guess social media doesn't matter today. It's time to double down on work and laughed about it and shook it off. And here I am because I have to be more protective of my time. But in that I'm sharing this message with this with this coach who's been coached by phenomenal coaches who is deepen the coaching game, who has helped tens if not hundreds of people level up their game. And he's doubting where he's at right now and he's calling upon me for guidance. And it's coming from the fact of a marketing standpoint, but it trickles itself into everything else because I will say over and over again how you do one thing is ultimately how you do everything. And if you have doubt in your personal life or doubt in your business life, it transfers through all four areas of aforementioned lifestyle. And so we sharing this with me sharing this Dalek. I'm going to build this up. I'm going to do all the stuff. Then I'll come back to this. I have to hit him right between the eyes. I to believe in sugar coating suffered, especially once you invited me into this coaching relationship, it's a lie like you're telling yourself ally. I'm telling this gentleman, he's lying to himself. That if we really look at it, the majority of us like me right now, I don't care where you're at, you listening you yourself right now. The fact that I can condense time get more done in twelve weeks. Most people get done in a year, do more in on hour to four hours in the morning. The most people do all week. Definitely just Coughlin the microphone. Apologies for that. The fact that I can do all that has impact the fact that I saw lying the fact that I have date nights, the fact that I truly focus on a four dimensional lifestyle filled with expansion matters. I don't have to make a million dollars to have a b that you listen to me. That's ego that shame that's guilt. That's an old story. That's an operating system that someone has instilled upon that you think you need that for validation the marketplace. Well, you need that of your approaching the world and saying, look, I'm a multimillionaire and I'm gonna teach you how to do the same. Then you to 'em. Right? You better make a million dollars. But if you're just saying, hey, look, I used to be x. number dollars in debt. And now I'm not in debt, and I used to not have occasion homes now, advocation homes, and I used to be someone that drank, and I used to be some of the cheetan I used to be someone that lied, but I don't do those things anymore. And it's been months if not years since I've done them and let me share with you how I stopped doing them and create a life I have today. There's a lot of people that are currently in that pit of despair that you used to be in. That exists for hundreds if not millions of people in the US hundreds of thousands of not millions where you said, data way, problems by drinking Friday and Saturday and Sunday, where you lie to your partner, your spouse about where you're going because you don't really feel fulfilled or committed, but also mentally stems from you're not happy with yourself. Where over and now to shape because of this nation that you're choosing to do because you're drinking, you're eating bad food, you're not sleeping, you're not caring about your body, you're not weaponising it. So you're off kilter and that then spirals into every other aspect of your life will your business are Souflias under because you're is not on the ball because you don't feel strong and powerful in the morning. All this stuff. All connects to one another every time. And so I'm literally rattling this guy's cages. I'm inside lifetime, not unlock room saving this little lobby area, bluetooth headset on, and I'm just shaking him opposite, not in person, but taking him over the phone. And I take a pause and I check and see if you still with me, could you never know? But this is a pre scripted, like there's no, there's no coaching booklet for this, and I'm like, wait, hold on. Let me go to chapter seven page one twenty. This after all comes from the heart. And there's a shift that happens. And I can energetically feel I can hear it in my ears that he goes from this self-defeating. I don't know if I can do this to reimposed reinvigorated monster of a coach. Who then reaches out to my buddy about writing a book who then is active in our in our workplace chat who goes all in again and recommit to himself. See, this is important, and this is impactful not because of an eagle play for me, but because the best people with the best trainers and the best mentors that have a proven track record, sometimes wake up and don't know what the fuck is going on. They wake up and they wanna throw in the towel. They wake up and need to be talked off the ledge. They might seem like the have it all together from the outside. But inside there some days where some things just don't go the right way. And instead of internalizing it, instead of retreating and sort of backpedaling and said of blowing it all up like he would have used to have done, he stopped and sought counsel. He saw council from someone that's free of judgment. I don't give a shit. I've been there before and mentally walk into the gym. I was there when I called him. They can fuck all this stuff. I don't want to do this. I want my day back. I don't want to call this guy. I don't wanna talk to Devon. I don't have the twelve phone call got scheduled today. How much easier would it be? Just a retreat and on a little business on the side that just talked a handful of people just focus on marketing. Have a podcast, forget all the other stuff. It'd be way easier. It's not what I'm called to do. It's not what speaks to me. It's not what fulfills me just like he doesn't fulfil him. And so when the recalibration. He hangs up at will eventually says, thank you. I feel on fire, I feel ablaze now things are like rocking inside of me. I get it now. Thanks for the shift. You alter my perception. I'm grateful for you. That's what this is all about. That's what coaching is all about. That's what making an impact is all about. When I say I want to touch a million people's lives. That's what the fuck. I am talking about. Some you hear that you just don't get it like you can't even conceptualize what at what that feeling is like to know that my words made an impact that could alter or will alter that man's day-to-day. No matter what else happens today. Today's been a win. But to win because I put myself on night, allowed it to be a win, then hang up with him, and there's another guy that's in the gym. That knows I'm in the coaching space that's also had some of the same mentors and proteges. I've had. Who wants to have another conversation about coaching. No wants to go nother direction. The decimate question about how I've structured my business and how things are going and why, and how and wear. There's another thirty minutes against consumed and all of a sudden my David normally starts by ten o'clock, like at the office by ten. I'm not even going up on the gym floor until ten o'clock because been phone, call her phone call after phone call about people seeking some sort of council or face to face. Now I say this one place a love. Like I love this stuff. Go upstairs, get my workout, done hop on a phone call and of having a couple incredibly impactful conversations with some of the individuals that were interested in the one seven program and just feel these shifts coming like, no, they're just greatness inside of so many people. They just need to tap into like, you can hear it as having a forty five minute or hour long conversation. I can hear the power that is just dormant, and I remember how it used to be when I was there when I was in their spot when I felt like they felt when I feel like they feel. But you listen to this podcast new consume the continent, man, this guy's got it. All right. Like you hear this stuff in its man, the lessons or the the stories, they're great. They're all truthful. Maybe I need to have a couple more episodes where I tell you like how fucked up my head is sometimes. When on Saturday I'm ready to pull my hair because I don't get any work done because I'm spending time with the family and I'm concerned. I'm not gonna be able to play catchup all week because I know there's more stuff I have to do. And if I want to increase my capacity, I have to work harder and smarter than I've ever done it before. Because again, coaching ten people was great. Coaching, fifties, fun. Coaching thousand takes a lot of damn work. It takes systems, processes, procedures, automation. It takes the the stuff I normally do podcasts and social media posting plus a whole back end. That until you're in the program, you don't really have a concept of how it all works as his doubt the creeps in and it's there. And it's consistent. It's gonna be able to do all this stuff can really pull this off. Can I make an impact. And then today happens because what I'm seeking is also seeking me and the validation I needed from the marketplace presented itself three times this morning. It presented itself because I was willing to receive it just as my buddy the most impactful phone call the one that his whole episodes about was willing to receive the kick in the dictum that I gave him. To me, that's what this whole coaching mentorship relationship ends up being about. Do you find someone that you can trust enough that when they kick you in the dick, you're willing to receive it? And yes, that's a crass way. That's a pattern interrupt I call it. I need a break through the noise of you. Listen to this episode. At some point, we all need somebody. I will encourage you to find somebody to accelerate your growth. To the place of getting you from where you're at to where you ultimately want to arrive to. You can't get there without someone elevating your thought process. You can't solve a problem from the same place. You created it. There's no way to increase your capacity, less someone else impresses something upon you or you find it yourself. So in that have that relationship with someone that you trust enough, that when they punch you in the face, you can take it and you realize it was out of love, and because they see the game different than you're able to see it. Which ultimately the phone call today and the meetings today. Is having a different vantage point from different things. I've been through different experiences. I've had different failures. I've created. That allows me to guide people from the position that I'm in now. So it alternately begs the question in your life right now. Where are you not asking for help when you know it would serve you. Is in a relationship like you had a great relationship is on fire that was filled with passionate excitement, maybe even some sex intimacy, and it's just died out and you're not sure if you want to scrap the relationship or you want to recalibrate it, you don't know who to turn to where or who could you talk to for relationship advice to either find a partner or make your current relationship better? Maybe it's in your body, maybe? No, you've, you're overweight. No, you are like you. You stop lying yourself. You drop the towel out of the shower in the morning. You look yourself in the mirror and you're just not happy with what you see. So you start beating yourself up and instead of asking somebody for help asking for a trainer, interviewing people to better your position, you just keep beating yourself up for how you look. What you lack the expansion, the capacity to make a change because you don't know what you don't know. Maybe it's the same things in your business, maybe an entrepreneur, or you even work for yourself an entrepreneur. And you know there's something greater just on the other side of this wall that's built inside your business, but you can't see it because you don't know how to access the key. You don't know where the key is for the door. So here you are knowing that something greater, you don't know how to get to it. Instead of beating your head against the wall and hopefully getting through it, just ask somebody where the hell the keys at. A mentor coach, someone will show you the key to open that door. Someone has done it before and we'll give you the shortcut. What I found time after time day after day when you ask for help when you actually need instead of delaying it. You're able to get shit done.

Living in Minnesota in Minnesota went to college. My wife is from. Yeah. From northern Minnesota. So I started young a while. I was in college. I was still nineteen. I wrote a letter to editor of dressing magazine and told them what I could do. I kind of wasn't sure. But I lived in Minnesota I can go to all the AWS shows. I can do the photos. I can be good for ringside photographer. And I was like in writes stories, I wasn't sure. But yeah, it was so funny 'cause I grew up in Winnipeg. Yeah. Probably watching the same same stuff shows. You watch him. You talked about it earlier because I became I started watching wrestling the seventies. But yeah, eighty one was when they would come to Winnipeg every month. Yeah. On you're still working mad dog version. My favorite Adrian dish event. Third Swiss connection should team. Then there's a lot of great performances move. We were talking about Nick buckling color earlier. Obviously like HOGAN was there right before he kind of blew up. Yep. No. So so when did you start working in Japan was with because these funny? Because there's gong magazine. Yes. Yeah. He's magazine was actually the name of arresting magazine, the parent company, baseball magazine and the pro wrestling weekly division, then. Yeah, they had we baseball magazine like a forty different magazines, volleyball magazine, the bowling magazine, baseball magazine, of course, sumo, wrestling, basketball, and just name anything. Everything have forty different magazines and throw wrestling and sumo, mount magazine and sucker magazine and baseball magazine was a four, you know, big ones. But and I remember like coming in the nineties, it was very popular the to to those magazines Tokyo sports newspapers because wrestling in Japan when there's a card the next day, you could find the results in the newspaper. Yeah. Just like it was a football game or something. That's the time of the match is definitely sports fans are more reeling oriented, and you find those newsstand basically tabloid, but the those spoil space supposed to become. Pretty much every day. The people pick up at the train stations, right, right? And things change. You don't see when you get on the jeopardy subways? You don't see many people reading those magazines anymore newspapers anymore. It changed to your your phone iphone. Yeah. That's the same everywhere around the world. I guess, but let me ask you this. Like if you go to Europe, for example, rock magazines, still big metal hammer and Karang are Japanese wrestling magazines, still important in Japan. Now, data also changed back in two thousand six who we to have to talk about the doubt gauge Japanese resting, but on the two thousand six weekly gone and weekly fight. They both went out of business pretty much together. Not at the December of two thousand five six. Wow. We weekly fight went out of business. I in six months later, we went out of business completely and baseball magazines. We could progressing wasn't selling that. Well, but. But the changed format little bit. We've changed hundred sixty magazine based magazine two hundred ten based magazine, then the price stay the same. Actually, the price went up, then they banned us from using color slide in us negatives. And no more. Dench ties everything I have to use digital camera. You have to use your computer to write your story, and he's put it in the folder and send it to your printer. And it comes right back and all the methods of producing magazines change to reduce the cost Roger. And then each and every freelance writers and photographers are called in. You have to we have to have a meeting and actually that was some of two thousand seven that our, you know, price of each column all those things just went for what you're making too, right? So is that because the people were more into the internet or was it because the business was bad in Japan. Both communites. Yeah. It wasn't transitioned all the print media and the newsstand tabloid magazines all going to internet era, and we were entering resting stock age era to oh, we struggled very much of the actual the promotions themselves as far as the quality or the stars. Or lot of resin company went out of business around that time that was the peak era Opio, pride and k on 'em and also transition period from your great mood. I in show those Misawa era into your Atanas era you needed a five-year Doug as period. Yeah. That's a retirement. It's almost like Saturday Night Live where they have they build up. All these great cast members in a will Ferrell's gone and Adam sandlers gone. You know, shero terrier Kristen Wigan that you have this cast that nobody knows. Trying. But this the ratings go down and they have to build a new star. I guess yeah. He was like that. Because that's where we're at now when you're talking about new Japan, maybe I don't know if it's bigger than it's ever been. But it's it's so popular right now on fire because of the Tana she Okada Naito Kenya. Mega those four guys. Kind of got the built built around the company on them in the new audience to news the whole new generation body is so where did the new audience come from? Oh FM in era. But the stop our two he's was WWE now, but she can knock him, and he was stunned Haji. Those two are like new era. Big huge superstar starting. Okay. We'll have to. We gotta talk about that. Wrestle kingdom thirteenth today. We'll, but we can talk about thirteen me at the wrestle kingdom. Started back in two thousand seven Dow was the end of the dark era. Until then the ACA five year period. Well, they still trying to do Tokyo dome shows. Yeah. Injury about ten thousand people. Wow. Yeah joke. You can hold sixty seventies. Yes. If I glory days, I mean, the first time I wrestled took dome as a super lighter was saying five thousand ninety seven. Yeah. Five thousand a year. It was amazing because then they can scale it down. I'm even last year. I think they had forty thousand but they'd scaled it down. So it was a soul sold out show much. But that's that's a huge building. So to put ten thousand people in there would look like. Saying that they they turn the lights off at the few that. Yeah. Yeah. So we're these guys that you're talking about like Shinsegei and Tallahassee with the Joe guys jazz. Yeah. So they finally just got their chance and started making waves and to be themselves. Yeah, they needed all star be con-. No and actually, Casey moved or Jono Hashimoto died, and yeah, Dow was where data and really have the real manufacturing. And you have to you pretty much had to wait quite a few years for kinda hush knock him out or to become their own star. Yeah. And it. Yeah. It was also a peak period of pride and the on the lotto wrestling fan, even the serious racing fan moved, you know, from your traditional pro wrestling to your to the mixed martial arts. I guess so. Yeah. So so when you're talking about this, and you mentioned like there was a turnaround because he you know key. Antonio Inoki was obviously started new Japan and seventy two then I think he became kind of a figurehead. But then he actually was it two thousand five or whatever base. Just sold his right, but yeah, yeah. Same logo same name, new Japan. But he actually slowed the whole company UK's. Yeah. The game company. That's like a game like a video game company. Yep. Yep. And then you sold it to bushy road. Right. Another big game company and bushy wrote his kind of where the resurgence came where they started. I don't know putting big money. You do. Yeah. And also the try different formula for advertising putting advertising on your trains and other things. And yeah. And it worked when we talked about when you were had Tana, and you had knuckle and then suddenly Okada's of the ranks of NATO. And then you have this great collection of foreign guys that started with prince Devitt dollar went to AJ styles as the top guy went to Kenny Omegas, dry guy. But then you had all these other gal's Anderson, and you know, now, you've got the young buck and right? A holding you crew that? Yeah. Which is so important too, especially with, but you're to recognize the gap between Scott Norton to your prince Devitt right nothing in between, man. Nothing was working as the foreign guys. Then. Who's even there? I know there was some. You you talking baiter Scott Norton. Yeah. That is stars. Yeah. Well, I guess not was a car Anderson in. Yeah. Gallows I know they had some some affiliation with impact I think with a little bit. But those guys in that regular when you gonna be a star in Japan, you have to work pretty much fulltime like stance and bruiser Brody Vader. You know, the funks right? Yeah. So didn't have any of them. How hard was it in your opinion? When Dobie kinda did the raid back in two thousand fifteen I think when they got gals Anderson. Yeah. J and nakimora Owen wanting Japanese talent in also the American talented will work in Japan at the time thought it was their opportunity. Yeah. To go up. Yeah. What happened to? Yeah. I think so you need an audience really accept that. Because he always wear you for new star. You know? So when you mentioned a whole new audience, and we talked a lot of kids, and there's a lot of he's and it's all. A lot of emails. Yeah. What's spearheading? That is that because there's a lot of good Japanese new hot talent. Or is there different advertising going out there or what is it? Let's combination of things pretty much news Japan audience is much WWE universe. See these new Japan fans only follow unusual pan. We still have this traditional wrestling fans, though, you know, who follow all the groups different groups, you have actually over hundred wrestling companies just out of Tokyo one hundred now, whomever was anybody one point to another. They all have their own off. I thought Ricky Fuji still working. Yeah. Still. He's still works every weekend for Dhaka meets, no Kaz group. Okay. Yeah. Fisher house. He's office. Ricky Jochen house these office was you are a house zone though. Joe is crazy. But that's how it is out of Tokyo, the one that has address and phone number and the website, I'm counting just over one hundred fifteen women's group. Yeah. Crazy every Saturday and Sunday, you look up know internet in the resting schedule. You have ten to fifteen shows in town every Saturday Sunday is that Mexico City, but it's not like authen- thousand people you have the three hundred. Yeah. Hundred people here. Right. Right. Fifty people in a bar. Okay. Whole became you a mic like a huge actually only holds seventeen hundred. Yeah. Yeah. But it's like a big deal. Yeah. To be able to run corker hall. You can sell cork hall. It's kind of the first step to. Major right. That's a news dependent roundabout fifty shows last year, though, fifty Corcoran shows. Yeah. Well, they just did too. And they're doing another one after the Tokyo dome. Right. It's kind of like running for your Monday night, raw after I was talking to new Japan officials, and there was like you have to if you 'cause they said that the demand for New Year's dash, which is the show right after Tokyo like a raw was like seven thousand requests for seventeen hundred. I said you now have to do with WB does do your dome show and then book real Goku sumo arena? Eight thousand ten thousand thousand you would you would sell that out or at least have a lot more people than Corrigan. I think so so many people come from around the world. They would stay for the next night Monday night, raw, right? The after exactly and then the season premiere. Yeah. The news all the conclusion of all the drama come through. And that's right. Your though. Yeah. They you need the season premiere. Yeah. I think they should run the real Golkar because that's something that's going on. Now, too is there's so many people coming from around the world because of new housing thousand NASA new Japan now has a penetration around the world. There's more specifically in North America over the last few years with the new Japan world streaming service and access TV. It's like selling out Madison Square Garden and all these different right? That's a big deal. Yeah. Dhabi unusual. It's just about the only company that can do worldwide, you know, second through O w. Of course. Yes. Lords wide base. But now that the new Japan ward has English commentary on the navy episodes. And that would open up the, you know, Mark WBZ's watching. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Anytime you have a company that can come into WBZ's backyard, right and sell up Madison Square Garden, and you can spend it any way you want to it's wrestlemainia weekend. It doesn't matter. They did something that Debbie has not done in years, which is sell out Madison. Also, they have politically stopped any group or you have C O and you've from coming to actually coming to Madison Square Garden, right and run the show. Yeah. Exactly. They were blocking full for fifty years. I think they tried to block this show, and it didn't work out. But and that's and that's my point. So when you're talking about a company that has, you know, it's nationwide TV on access TV it's not, you know, NBC or or USA network. I wrote it still funded by billionaire Mark Cuban there's money there w doesn't never takes anything like that lightly. We'll so live era live certainly streaming. Exactly. Like, we send early you can watch these shows as they happen. It's like watching Monday night, raw if you have new Japan world tunnel that expensive to get you know, we saw that last year when we had you know, when I worked with Kenny and suddenly the subscriptions in North America went up forty percent twenty thousand subscriber in one day or something. Yes. Yeah. And that was the like I said the bridge Russ you getting these people to check out the company, and suddenly now, you have all these people that might have tuned in just to see Jericho and omega that are staying to watch pretty much everybody else. Not all that expensive. It's just like your w nine ninety nine hundred eighty nine. Yeah. Like one thousand people think as thousand yen. That's ten bucks. Yeah. Right. It's not a lot. Okay.

Getting the best physical and mental shape of your life and go do it. Now. So we talked about last year with with Russell kingdom twelve. It was a huge success. We're heading into wrestle kingdom thirteen and I know that ticket sales right now a few days before the show a couple of weeks for the show are way ahead of where they were last year at this time and the may floor at the baseball stadium may fluids completely sold out. And that's only stand quicker than last year. So as well moist. Yeah. A buzz, and I think discard might be one of the best cards in in new Japan history. As far as from the first mass to the last match every-, everyone could be a show stealer. Yeah. I guess. So I was just thinking notes. Wow. Yes lineup. It's crazy. Right. Able to the point where we'll start going there and he'll be four. The result is the new Japan rumble. Right. Not happening this year gauntlet match, and it was a sick like a trios gauntlet match. Yes. Something like that. Yeah. You got a twenty seven thirty guys that not on the main card, right? Kind of like you're under the giant memorial battle. But but but look at but look at this though, when you're talking about who's in that I. Suzuki notices, Akiva, he could be a main event mardi mardi skirl. Right. You Lance Archer debut was even with right? Do you have other guys though, she could Jima ten zone could Chima Nakanishi, you know, down. Jeff is going to be just the whole is. Oh, the guy who's not on the card. Okay. So yours who's not on the car that might be in this in this column matched lighter tiger mask mardi girl. Who was in a huge match last year to mcabe Suzuki. He knows his not almost go this show. The last of soccer show that I had Goto Zucca Taichi. Michael elegant, Jeff Cobb Archer, David Wyss junior. Chase Owens hangman page. There's another one none of those guys on owning Nakanishi Kojima tens on Dave Finlay junior. Check ET breath. Rocky Romero this goes on the main cargo, right? And then they'll always have like a Gino Gambino or like a king hawk coup or someone will write much in. Yeah. But I mean when you're talking about this this level of talent for the dark match. Basically that's telling you what kind of a roster. Japan has to be more and more like wrestlemainia. Exactly, exactly. So we know that the has to be a trio. But if you had to pick, I guess, we don't even know what the trio's are. It's going to be hard to pick a winner. I'm gonna say whoever Suzuki's team is I think that's who's going to win. Right. He's guys sukey and or somebody like lines Archer debut boy Smith and with minnows. Oh, that'd be good. Just beating the crap out of everybody could be a good one. And so but the official opening match is against. Taibu we'll Osprey. Now this match is just completely insane. To me. Like, I think both these guys are maybe the two best agile. Hi. Hi, fly is also beyond your imagination. You're appear to me with style with twenty twenty. Yeah. You know, I watched the match last night that they had in cork. And it was a tag match of Bucci can't Iverson. Aw. Diving Franklin Steiner he spins land. Did you see that best spots of ever seen? If you haven't seen any great camera. The very underrated. Sometimes the camera crew, but they caught this shot. So what it was Osprey was standing on the top rope. Bucci did a springboard into a top rope standing super Frankenstein owner. And when he came through Osprey did a front flip and landed on his feet smile. Smile Tyler on that was amazing. And then they had this angle is focusing Bucci. Yeah. Turning around slowly in looking at aspirin. Yeah. Bush's in the foreground raised kind of in the background, and it was such an amazing spot. Spot. Just a taste of what we're going to see with these two guys. Which is interesting to me because there was a big controversy a few years ago. Yes osborne. Ricochet right. Yeah. Like somebody that late Vader Vader. No, no. It's looks way too choreographed. It ain't wrestling and to me. Yes, it is wrestling. And that's the best thing about restaurants. There's so many different types evolves. And like really variety show. You can have technical match. You can have a brutal brawl you can have a championship match or you can have this amazing display f- athleticism, and timing and chemistry, and I feel that Osprey Bouche you're going to have that same vibe that that he had with ricochet. Yeah. This is a perfect the is two guys. And I also think when I first came here last year when I did the running on Kenny in Osaka. The first appeared I couldn't believe how big Osprey was. Oh, he's tall, right? Is actually pretty tall taller than I am animal. Wait Huby heavyweight. That's what I'm thinking. I think he has a chance. Become to become the next fin que J canny spray. If you're going for that, Linda jigsaw. I wasn't sure when this controversy. You just talked about Osprey against wrinkle share that looks like two guys memorized the whole dance with some bright. But the nobody can do else can do it. Right. Yeah. The way things I had steamboat on my podcast, go and talk to you about the great wrestlemainia three match versus any savage savage that whole match was choreographed from spot one to spot done where they had it written down. They would that savage style. Yes. They would quiz each other. Gimme moves number thirty five to fifty two or gimme stealth by and see Rogers, everything buddy Rogers used to do that really, buddy Rogers. And he's buddy. Mind, but they had. Shoulder block to duck onto the jump over to international heavy. That's that's twenty four. Thirty two twenty four twenty two twenty one. But that's that doesn't bother me when you get guys that can do it like you said that no one else can do athletic athleticism. I mean, incredible stuff. And I think that's what's called these are soul special machine. Osprey both of them very special. But Bush's not a easy in new Japan guy or no years now, he is he and Kenya. Mingas almost isolated case. They started was independent company called DDT. They were discovered by new Japan and got signed away. Some when you go to new independent shows, you will find one or two guys that are already kind of special, and you kind of new Japan when discovers consign them away. Do you do that? Sometimes you mentioned if there's so many shows in Tokyo. Independent show. You go to rock concert or live house show or a movie that a not so good. You find one or two things that are special in right, right? So where did you go to the bench show, you find one or two guys? Oh my gosh. It's this guy can be something special. So do you. Do you tell somebody this detail somebody new Japan or on the not the newspaper? We've talked about have you seen this guy. Yeah. Word gets around. Then some people notice same guy. Is there a guy right now in Tokyo that you're thinking? And there's so many also what whatsoever. Special aspirin as that news generation independent wrestlers already starting emulating him. You know, what Oscar does. Yeah. Like the night after you see this guy do certain things next week you see in. You'll say moves in put they're pushing it to the next step. You know what I mean? Yeah. There's got regular guy who's athletic enough can copy the move through. What makes difference you'd be more creative? Right. Yeah. Ospreys crave. If wishes creative. I remember the first time I came to Japan FM w ninety one these Aki who I was. He did a moon salt. Yeah. And nobody at the time. And so when he did the moon so you had to make the save because it was such a tremendous move. Gosh, she's beautiful in the in the match. And that's what I said to today. Meltzer. We're talking with dynamite kid, whereas in one thousand nine hundred eighty three when Metallica came out. Okay. They were playing so fast and heavy you'd never heard anything like it really now in two thousand eighteen everyone plays faster and heavier Metallica. Just seems like. Oh, yeah. Metallica. But at the time they were pioneers revolution. That's what dynamite kid was like that is what is accurate with this moon Cy right, everything special and something about him. You know, the bottom. Yes, exactly new disguise going to be a big. He's going to be a big deal someday. Yeah. Yeah. And that's the we have. So this is for the never open weight championship, right? Bouch match opening like gosh, I'd hate to follow this thing a couple of years ago, and Kevin Owens were at rest of Asia wrestlemainia. No, Kevin Owens in the opening match was AJ versus Shane McMahon. So forget it. You can't follow that. But I'm going to say never open weight Obuchi just beat Taichi for it takes. You will go go go to okay. Wow. I'm going to say. Let your special. Yeah. Yeah. He's I won't me over you know, 'cause. Right. When Vader talked about Osprey ricochet match. I was with Vader's op- opinion. Right. That way to choreograph to be believable. But over and over as how Oscar is, of course, talented, but creative. Yeah. Keep coming back with something near you know, he gained more confident. Yes. Over the years. This guy's special big guy. And I think now we don't know the future of right Busta, Kenny, Cody they need to build. Australian. I think like I said he could be the next big foreign Stover so style twenty twenty for sure. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So second matches the I w GP junior tag team titles. The three way Canada. Maroon desperado showing yo which is three K Takagi in Bucci who are from Los ignore ablaze. I'll go shit bushy in the thing is here. Here's the thing. And I it seems like almost every match on this show is for a title. I think we'll be much British every wait die team US, titled junior title O'Connor. Jay, white is the only match on this car. That's title shift. Right. Are we getting into a position with us too many titles in new Japan nuke style way? Yeah. Because he almost don't need never. British title and right junior tag team. I guess you could do that. But I mean, like what's the difference between the young bucks, and you know, bushy into Kagi those young boxer in the heavyweight tag team, but they can work junior heavier style too. But that's, but that's the way that the business is now the Fumi when you look at okay. Like, let's go to WBZ where you're talking about two five live, right, right? And he got these guys that are doing kind of the quote, unquote, cruiserweight style remote in the main event. It's it's Seth Rollins. Know who can do all of that stuff in his pretty much? Thank you for Murphy is the same size as as Seth Rollins. This dual five what's the difference? Right. So I'm gonna lose that like that. Yeah. And there's a lot of guys AJ's in there, and you know, those type of guys very similar so you annual Brian Daniel, Bryan, similar those guys. You know, if this was ten years ago would be in the ws away cruiserweight. Yeah. I was a cruiserweight. Eddie as a cruiserweight. You know, you talk talking two hundred ten two hundred twenty pound guys. Right. But as a star of the show that, but they force out there who wanted to hold you guys, Dauth course, and also to that was the transition time like we mentioned when when size was still an issue shoe Cogan. There was still that time. Now, it's not an issue 'cause all the guys are pretty much. You got a few guys that are bigger, but everyone's pretty much the same size. Yeah. I guess so now so yeah. So you talk. Okay. I like Bucci showing your a good team to though. Yeah. Total baby face. That's one of those guys that weren't doing anything put them together. And they got a cool name because I don't know even know what their full names are in also this special Japanese wrestling formula, you have to leave Nagorno foreign country for about a year. They come back with the long hair or neutering name or new finish. Is that what they did? Yeah. Where do they? They go into independent in America. Okay. Tempera boys. Oh, really? Yeah. Just working independence though. I think so. Yes. Emperor boys kind of cliche. Maybe today was name. The ten per boys. You throw in salt in your opponents is kinda almost American shares. But they came back like somebody. Yeah. You know, what is their names showing you do, you know Dato would is showing us real name full name Tanaka show. And what? Yes. Show tanaka. I'll give us the Merced. I ames. The first names. Okay. Another tanaka. So who's the champions? Now is it? I'm not even sure who's a junior tag team champions to tell you this for auto. Okay. So I'm gonna say you're going with the bushy and Takagi I'm gonna go with showing you, okay? Go with that. So that's I junior heavyweight champion Takagi and bushy. Both got hit in the head by chairs last night. Yes. My crazy Canadian whose name will not be mentioned me. Okay. So then with the British heavyweight title of this one here, very interesting as itchy versus Zack sabre junior. Yup. That's funny. Older two different. Once again when I first came into new Japan I saw. She in the dressing room. And he said, do you remember me, and I was like who is this guy? And I realized he was a young boy in general in on during beg carrying back. It looked almost exactly the same. Just now his bald head has gray bits of hair before it was just black Carrington. Mr. was right. But he he's just recently over the last year got all the next live right survival. Yeah. Like, he's he's a guy that has a great match every night pretty much, right? Not technically sound. I mean, they Mundi doesn't have this fancy rookie moves, right? No top is. Yeah. No dropkick nothing. Maybe he does dropping every now and then but just being tough guy. Yeah. Believable, tough guy beating the ship him Suzuki. All rap each other. Yeah. At power struggle. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's something. I noticed new Japan style is somehow. Elbow forum to the face. Yeah. I'm like that man. She does he know this. We specialize that. Yeah. Not anybody's bushy, you know, not everybody's aspirin. No one wants the NHL righty show. But here's everybody's getting you'll mega. So she like we talked about more of a tough kind of a bruiser against Zack sabre junior. Who's one of the best technically, I think so. Yeah. Which is so funny because when you see him he's so thin and just all looks like a little kid. But then he gets in there. And he's one of those guys that just knows every Karl Gotch Billy Robinson Setis fans. Traditionally always liked the style. Yeah. But and also to like, we talked about he's so good at it the that it puts them in a completely different level because he makes it look so easy. And if you try and come on him like. Guys like, Johnny saints. These people try and copy Johnny Saint and no one can do not quite the same. Right, right. I find this like that was October junior. Yeah. He's very special very interesting. Evolution stuff guy image against tax savings juniors. This European total catches gets Jen. Submission core. Got speedy Robinson things it'll be very interesting when you work with a guy like legs ES j you just have to hold on. And let him do do things. You know, like, I am not a technical wrestling. I really never was. But when you get in there with the galley that's like working with Milenko or eagle as long as you're kind of holding on you'll get put in and out of stuff. Like, oh, yeah. How did they do that? Puzzle. Yeah. Yeah. Just just his his style is so unique and flowing. Yup. Just it'd be Gumby or somebody. So I would assume that Zach is probably the British champion champion is she's a champion seizes champion right now. So maybe this is the time Zack say Virginia. We'll get the title and bring that back to Europe. It's. And I don't know. I know like in Debbie, they always keep an eye on how many titles which is. There are. Whereas last year. Yeah, I know in wrestle kingdom. I think there was like six times. Care. You have to watch it. Yeah. So I'm going to say keep it on. She just because I'm sure there's going to be awesome, other switches. Sure, that's my prediction. What's yours? The I'll go with these. She. Okay. Yeah. Then you got kind of the new era bullet club, Tama Tonga and Tango versus the young bucks versus evil Tanada for the idea. BGP tag Hijaz another three way. Yeah. This is just too many guys on Ross. Because I junior tag team title match this either GP tact him tighter, much, both triple threat. Yeah. And that's reminds me of wrestlemainia yet through just guys. Right. So many multi person matches too many guys where you just you want to get everybody on the show. Yeah. Word we just talk about this via the doc match. Thirty guys look at all the guys in there. I mean, and so it's kind of the same with. I think the young bucks were kinda the the odd bucks out support him in there for the three way. You know? I it's a good mix of styles. Yeah. This one, you know, and it's interesting to me when you're talking about Tama, Tonga, Tanga low and and kind of this new bullet club. I'm wondering is it time to change the name? Do we do we I would say it's time station. I think so like bullet club has been through so many different phases and guys and his so synonymous over the last couple of years with the box canyon, Cody. And now that they're gone. It seems like they want to change it to something else. You know, the whatever the yeah. But the I guess the companies still have to sell March. Now the bullet. I guess it's to bind it. Yeah. End up not shirt stuff like that and still going. So I mean that that's GM concept. Yeah. But the evils another Bambi. Yeah. You know? And this is nothing. You know, if you go online and read how the young bucks talking about how they're you know, they're done with ring of honor. And there's new things happening. I mean, they might it seems to me that this might be one of the last times we see box, and Cody, and and maybe even canny, which we'll talk about later. But if the bucks are gone, they won't be winning so. Yeah. Evil and sonata. I think is your best bet. You know, it's gonna be weird though. Because I mean, the the box every match to have is so good. But you know, I mean, I even sonata they'll take them, right? You yvonne. And now here's another thing to these guys have to go on after the other three way junior tag team. It's almost like the same style of match right again. Right with three teams six people in the ring, and as a wrestler, it's hard to do that. When you have. It's like having two cage matches in one night. Once you see won back to back. Yeah. If I was the the bucks an evil, and Tom I would wanna go on before guys. You know, the other guys. Yeah. Then we got the US title. Cody, don't call them roads versus juice Robinson for the idea BGP US Thailand. And here's the interesting, and you can tell me about this. How is it? I mean Kenny in Jericho notwithstanding. Can you get the the heat as to foreigners in a match like this juice Robinson is considered new Japan wrestler? He went through DOJ. Oh system. Yeah. And yeah. Before he went to WB after. Was was Florida championship wrestling developmental in also part of the inex- t-. Yeah. And I think he was part of the performance Senate too. But he decided to pack up and left the country, and he came to Japan is start living in DOJ. Oh, oh, yeah. So he did to those your style. Oh, it's just know that. Okay. So he studied with new Japan. The first match guy awhile. No this him and with about Jay white later. But yes, Finley too, right? Yeah. Interesting. So so the Japan fans will get behind juice, juice Robbins and little baby face easier for coda to be healed in. Oh, I think so I think so I think juice Robinson will be more popular than Cody. Great matches juice had a great Macha. Was it was it with Kenny or who had a great match with somebody recently or juice juice lobbies against on hashish single masters cocaine last year was pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. I think he's another guy that the company is going to build up as another possible. Yeah. You know? Yeah. Four wants to stay here. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Right. I mean, if you can take Osprey, and you mentioned, we'll talk about j widened juice. That's a pretty good, you know, new era, if we lose the box, and Cody and Kenny, but so yeah, I think once again by their own admission of these guys talking about how they're going somewhere else or starting their own company. Whatever it is. I think it's juice. It's going to be the winner. Probably for sure on that one. Yeah. In japan. Yeah. Yeah. And also he has something about him is total Babyface. Yeah. Total likable guy. Right. And almost kind that. I like Roman reigns style. In the swamp punch much thing. He has that's okay. Like once again like we talked about. Earlier all you need is one to one or two or three few c- insure moves. And when you can get those over, that's all you need. And then you just figure out ways to weave in and out of it and to fool people. Yeah. And you're all set it right now. Juice Robinson hasn't had much push yet. I've been watching this guy. So I like him and he's to- something about him. It's total Babyface. And that's smart, you the new Japan system or any system, but you build a guy like you said I match and then he wins. And then he goes the second match only for him to be the US champion movie costume. Yeah. And everything. So all right. So we're in agreement on juice getting that then we've got idea GP junior heavyweight championship because she versus issue Maury. It's more. Oh, another total game computer game. Video guys more is like that. Right. I think so. Oh, yeah. Oh god. Because he just came to Japan recently. He was working in impact. I think right before that he was with progressing, nor it's more. Yeah. Okay. And originally from autumn it's ragged school. So as Okada which I did not know, right, right? I had no idea before new Japan. Right. Yeah. So you the outcome. That was one of those guys who was working basically, independent discovered by new Japan and got signed away. Really not come to the does so much WWE. Right. Yeah. Fine. It's good in the developing your new guy at home on Senator Dole Joe system. But when you find somebody special independent city, you kind of scout him in just signed the way. That's what happened with Takagi. She dragon gate. He looks to talking about Takagi. He he looks like somebody always somebody when he came in Osaka. Power struggle has who is that guy. But that's the best. Yeah. He was a style with dragon gate, so you can find these guys and bring him in. So that's what they've done with this. She Maury and cheetah's is now she does also Jewish student. Originally. I okay he went to Canada in debut the independent in Canada, then discovered by new Japan. You got signed aware that quite a few. No, just a mention quickly. He's if there's any update on Hiromu who had a neck he's out little longer than we, you know, we all regionally thought. Oh, okay. But he's still maybe can come out. Yeah. I think so good still out months. Jarrell terrible looking bump during the matinee. And if he finished the match, you know, it's amazing to me. I was watching last night in the Bucci Osprey, Kenny and Tana, and as I get older in the business neck, bumps guys, it it really bothers me. It scares me. And Osprey took a bump like he takes crazy bumps as it is he's he's calmed down a little bit. But he took a bump off a clothesline right on the back of his head. And just watching it. It's like oh. And seeing that injury that that he had it. You know, go Franken Steiner complicated something echina- through might on his head. And then it's funny because people say Japanese style is. No, it's not. It's it looks risky. But you do a safe. You have to be saying, you know, what I'm saying? It's up to you ex. Yeah. It's really spectacular Kim bump, but you do it safe. Yeah. You have to make sure that you protect yourself and understand your opponent with the move is. Yeah and worked together. But like, you said, this is going to be another amazing high spot extravaganza wrote, I haven, which is the the great lineage, you know, for so many years of of like when I was here in the nineties with laggard and Sam Orion Otani. Oh, yeah. Account Emoto and all these tremendous tremendous workers. So I don't know. I like you. She more. I don't know if they'll give it to him the championship. He looks great. And he works great. So he speaks English to. Yup. Which is always a plus. So I'm going to say issue more. He's yeah. I say either way I think she initially Maury should have match. Knicks five years. It doesn't matter. These two should have like a dozen dozens of matches. Yeah. Good chemistry there. Now. I think so. And then I'm size. Yeah. And same style too. So as move into very important three matches very kind of the final three triple main events sort of thing, the the one mash that does not have a title at stake, and from a guy that was the main of it last year of time what Okada because each has its scope disco Kaba. Yeah. And j white who is another guy who came out of Joe, right? Yep. And Jay's it's interesting to me that they found him. He's from New Zealand. He's a big guy. And I can't believe that. No one has tried to steal him because of his size. And you're looking guy looking guy. And you know, I think last year he worked against Tana Hashi at the Tokyo dome, which was a little bit who's soon soon. So what you think? Yeah. Yeah. I don't know you probably think differently. But no, no. I agree. Gee, I think so I think he has it though, he has it. But the little too soon for a match of style, which is out high up, which is funny because if you go to last year's triple main event. Yeah, it's the same six guys pretty much. Yes. It is. It was Cada and Kenny Kenny and Jericho Okada NATO j white and Tallahassee. Exactly. Same six years. Sakata J Jericho NATO Kenny end Thomas say six guys. So yeah, exactly. It's your six cashier building around. But. Oh god. He's so good. Like, maybe just from watching. I've never been in the ring with him. But maybe the best maybe the best. Former baby, you know, just watching him very smooth, very smart athletic athletic grade, drop kicks. And being the champion for such a long time. Is it strange for you to see him in match seven line? This is find all seven eight nine these three matches all main event knowing the mission. Just you've got to sit home, right? You can sit tight and watch all these three. Yes. The the moneymakers. Guys. Yeah. Interesting and switchblade, I think he's the leader of this new book club with Tomasson to. Yeah. This is bad luck Fale and all these other guys. So, you know, I think Tana beat J white last year the Tokyo dome. I believe. I don't know who do you think you'll cutter? Qatar God that should still be Jay white. Yeah. You think so I could see a white can challenge, you know, this tunnel. She or Kenya. May go night doors somebody little bit more famous and has more longer career. Jay white has been around only four years altogether. Yeah. Something like that. Yeah. So you think and this is what I love about Japanese pro wrestling is that there's a certain believability. So you think it's not the right time for JD beat Okada just from experience stamp, some Orissa became, you know, become more popular by losing. You know, they love underdogs. You know, what I'm saying the fighting spirit. Yeah. Yeah. Challenging one more time. This really is the country, and it's like this in the states, but more so here where you can get over just as much by losing by winning dynamite. Kid tiger mass. He never won the max against. Yeah. Tiga masking still reasonable dynamite. Kid talking about. He's not the only seven matches single matches every single matches. Then Mikey last. But one some really, but he was just as popular. Wow. You know, what you see in the match, and then you get. So carried away. You get so involved, you know, and people secretly loved dynamite. Kid just as much as they love Tiga masoleum the match. Yeah. Let me and John CENA wrestled twenty times. I don't think I ever one. But I don't think so. But every time was a great match. And I think that's that's like you said you can you can get over more in a lot of ways by losing. Then you can buy winning. It's interesting too. I can tell you that story talking about Tom of Tonga entangle their father Hakuna hukou. A one of the first great matches in my opinion that I had here in Japan was was in ninety four against king Haku, really. I can't remember where it was. It was some country town. Yeah. Or something and it was a single match. So you match and we had this amazing match where he sold for me. And obviously, he's a killer. Kick the shit out of me by fighting back back, and he gave me the finally at the end is finished was power bomb, and he gave me the big power bomb. And he told me to kick out one to kick out. Okay. Kick out huge pop big reaction. And then all he did was just picked me up and give me another one one finish. After I got a standing ovation kicked out of the one power bomb, though is a killer. He made me he made me by having me kick out his finish. And then just no transition will more fancy shit just picked me up and give it to me again. And it was a great learning. Like, okay. I just got over way more. Losing losing than if I would have given him a small package or somebody wants to three. Yeah. Right. You know? And I think I think this is same way the same thing though. Yeah. Okay. Say white can lose then be over. Okay. I will say I think it's gonna win. Okay. Only be something creative though. I'm just trying to think of where they might want to go. And and once again, there's this big hole in the foreign size. Oh, yeah. I have a feeling that they have planned for their white. Yeah. Either way either way you'll be a future BGP heavyweight champion at some point. Yeah. I'm pretty sure. And then we move onto my match of Jerico versus NATO and the continental title. Yep. You know, once again, I I really think that night to is probably the best promo bist Rommel from the new Japan guys right now, you know. Yeah. I if if if we had a like an app where you could just hold it up and everything he said Japanese was coming out in English. Yeah. Those promos would fit in the United States right now. Okay. His attitude his vibe, they'll tell me a little bit about the story of NATO about how anti-establishment. Yeah. But wasn't he supposed to be in the Tokyo domain event at one point? And then something went the has some kind of a vote to see what was going to happen. Did you hear about this the well, why was that do you know what the state though, at one point we come over here? You're going gonna get your talk is Jericho debut because I think what had happened was. He was supposed to be in the main event of a joke. You'll dome do you know the story. Do you do, you know the story? So tell the story this is Taito from new Japan. I. You know, that time Naito one Jiwan crime mocks, but funds are not automated him so boat. Was happened. Dame fans voted to night, Tallahassee versus Nakamura didn't much the main event. Supposed to be Nakamoto versus NATO Nakamura versus Tallahassee for intercontinental championship will be semifinal much. Then Okada versus Naito will be. I wish you behavior ambition for the main event, but. Ripta lizard of the boat. The much older is changed. That was it. So so the match stayed the same. But instead of Okada NATO going on last they went on before Tana and Nakamura because the fans didn't believe Naito was ready for this position. So there you go. Serious gave him a real. Thank you, title, gave him a real chip on his shoulder, which I think have attitude. Yes. And I think after that is when he went to Mexico for the loss ego. Now, rob lays on and came back with this added just last year, though, you'll match against Kenya make out or and he was very as match, Dan. This is who goes last is very important here. He was very angry about that last year that he was even considered to be a double main event because he's like, no, it's not a double main event. It's it's it's it's Naito and Okada is the main event, right? And that's what that's why I attacked him at cork in halls and the day after. Yeah. But I think that put a real chip on his shoulder which gave him the kicking his asked to come back to create this whole new thing where now he's one of the most popular guys real on the roster popular, you know, in the faction leader. Yeah. You know? And like I said, you know, I'm going to end Naito's career at the Tokyo dome. Okay. And the reasoning for this is because. When you're on a card with all of these matches. What can I do to make our match standouts? It's different from eight other championship matches auspice. I've met. I want to. So we want to have a more of a. Brutal violent type of a match that that is me focusing on ending his career. So, you know. You know, what my prediction is that I'm gonna win. Right. There you go. I'll go with you Christine. All right. Thank you. Thank you very much. Give you twenty years later. Either way. Like, I said, I'm very divided. The match headed dominion. This year was was a lot of fun. And he's good, man. Once again, you've got a lot of great guys saw this type of match that. Like, I said earlier news Japan. Wrestling fans are much lot like w universe. They watch new Japan. Only therefore, they know these all these characters and all these wrestlers in and Christine was matches pretty different from everybody else, you audience have to sit and think say you set up the table, right? The be the match then people watch that right? Then you don't use that day before it's kind of something happens at the beginning of the movie, and the he leave it Nance, you know, you gone for ten fifteen minutes, then you come back to their, you know, the spot where you used a table when they're not expecting. You throwing two cheers, you know. And the one will be used, but the 'nother share will be like us little bit yet to come into play. So those new audience they have to really bay attention to. The movie, you know, and that's and that's where you can like you said use the tricks that you learned from twenty eight years experience. Yes. So yeah, I'm excited. It's going to be something new or something ever seen something different from from the rest, which is what you want. And then this the main event the other half of the triple main event or double main event, whatever which is the best belt machine of Kenya. Mega versus Tomahawk. She for the idea BGP title. Kenny won the title from Okada at dominion this year in June. Once again, I mean is this KENNY'S last match in new Japan. I don't know. I don't know. But either way and also this might be it's been announced at the might be here Tallahassee is the last opportunity to challenge for title. Really? Yeah. Wow. Okay. He's forty one now and small Bah. I don't use any example. But the Shawn Michaels, you know, that you can still be minivan. But this might be his last optionally do headline card last chance. Right. Yeah. Yeah. So I want to go for her. She, you know, isn't there is there a little bit of animosity between tunnel Hashi and omega style bresson's when Kenya maga- an embassy and Cody had triple threat back in October kind of hush in after the press conferences, that's not wrestling. What I think of wrestling. Why would we three guys friends breaking table on each other doesn't doesn't make any sense? You know, if they say today's style, right? Today's star. But this isn't a wrestling. I learned. Very good, though, the, wow, so nothing. Good though. Yeah. It's like a subtle subtle problem sort issue. Yeah. I mean been believable because down the high. She does what she does and pretty much old school wrestling, you know, high fly floor like your frog splash this only when she uses, you know, his stick with it. He's very much a Bret Hart style. Yeah. Everything he does looks good. It's not like he's doing a bunch of flashy moon. Put it all makes sense. Like like last night in that match with a Bucci Osprey, Kenny and Tana, I didn't see Tana like not quote unquote, keeping up with the rest won't do. I mean, I it's like when I worked with Kenny last year and people are like house, Jared, we're going to keep up with Canis. I don't have to keep up with anybody. A good matches a good match keeping up. It's just working together with putting over each other's strengths. Yeah. Or you don't have to do the same thing. They do. Right. You keep a different, you know. I'm really looking forward to this. Because I mean, Kenny, it's interesting when you have confidence in this business, you you're on firemen you you can work with anybody's guys special. Like, you can't you can't. He's just got the confidence that he's got lots of little like great mood, a nine hundred eighty eight little moves and Dick's that. He does. And he's just really fun to watch all across the board. And I've never seen. I'm sure he's had single matches the Tana. But I haven't seen one since I've been here and I'm excited to see it. You know, actually, can you turn the single match was Kenya. Minhas one of the first match was new Japan two years back. Yeah. At the climax, all k- single Matt's. Sure. It was. So can you make it two years ago in the Kenya? Omega today. Two different person. Right. Yeah. So can you make a real confident? And I'm still hoping that this is done hashes night. Yeah. But you were saying that you don't want candy to to leave new Japan. I want to be honest with you. I won't. Can you got to stay here? And headline Tokyo McCartin extend years, be king Japan. It's interesting because now with with all of the international penetration. That new Japan is getting, you know, more influencing the United States. You have to wonder like if Kenny stays he'll be kind of the face of the company and way to lead worldwide. You know, you need English-speaking occasion gallon guy. So sort of for war worldwide market. I think Kenya. Mega international much can headline Madison Square. You know, people would love it. You know, because that's the thing with new Japan eagerly sold out Madison Square Garden, you still have to put on a great show because if not you'll never sell it out again if you put on a great show that's the beginning. You put on a show that ratio. Yes. The end. Yeah. Right. Well, that's the thing. Plus, you know, Kenny speaks perfect Japanese various special if as a Japanese does he speak fluent, no accent, no accent. Oh, oxen ninety accidental bit. But that's a charm. No. But she not a wars or just a phrase. He just speaks Japanese. Yeah. How did he learn that? It's been you ten years. Yeah. That'd be somebody must have thought properly. Yeah. Grandma's, correct. Wow. You know, then pronunciations pretty perfect because there's nothing worse than when you try and learn how to speak a foreign language, and you finally get him hers to try and people just stare at you. That happened try to speak Japanese so many times, and you go like hotcakes Khuda aside like. I'll take. Pancakes. Okay. So he speaks perfect Japanese. So so who is your prediction on this? I'm hoping this is done hashes night. Okay. I I'm going to say to go home. I'm going to say KENNY'S gonna keep it. Yeah. And and stay in new Japan. That's my prediction. Oh win and stay was news as Japan. Okay. Overall, which match do you think is going to be the best match in the last two different ways. Circle though and omega Tallahassee and I'm going to do different things. I'm gonna throw bushy and Osprey in there as well. Right. There is gonna to match far away. But it's going to be hard to follow that one day. Those are so special sauce special as as we wind down your you've seen. Every Tokyo dome show pretty much attended every talk show. What are you? What are the best matches? You've ever seen it until I saw a high. Seattle. I always get asked to who's the biggest American superstar in Japan or something like that. Oh, that's a hard one Ireland. But is there is there a certain matches that stand out for you that you saw the took doing well dog, and nobody could talk at a pretty, you know, new Japan against w five huge one. Right. And that was that was legit told. You them sell sell sixty five thousand right dog is nobody could talk and UW for it's going to be like, you're gonna change the world. You're gonna change wrestling. You're gonna make it a legitimate sports. And all that, and we'll talk came back in be tuck out. I was figuring for LEGO real traditionalist almost like the first invasion angle, right? Yeah. Right. If we wasn't for that, you know, you against new Japan thing. None of those interviews things that have happened. You know, somebody studied it. I think Bischoff actually study that. Yeah. Yeah. At the time. Oh, ended up promotion day believe right? Yeah. So that was the big one any other steno for you. A lot of those you know, 'cause even all Japan when you're talking about the. Against colorado. So many Bashi to all so many good ones. There can happens every year. And then at one point use your ban us thrown what three three oh two or three tokens home shows that year. Oh, really? Yeah. Two or three one in January one in summer. Yeah. Oh, wow. Yeah. So all all in Tokyo. Were they trying other state like if go? Yeah, I think one year they had like a three Tokyo them shows a year. Yeah. January April in summer or something like that. Gotcha. Yeah. The great boat that I saw was I I met Kenny in Christmas time two years ago, which should be two thousand sixteen. Okay. And so January fourth two thousand seventeen was was Kenny in Kolkata. Fifty seven. It's crazy dragons suplex for the top rope, which I yelled at him for backdrop into the table. And there was the first Kenyan mega match ever saw. Oh that was. Yeah. And it was just an amazing match. So, but very exciting kingdom. This. This is a good one good show. Good card, and like we said it's going to be a full house and. If you guys want to watch it, and you're not going to be in Tokyo, you can go to new Japan world, and you can you can sign up sign up English commentary with Kevin Kelly, and Don Callus, which is amazing stuff or you can watch the Japanese commentary, which is always fun to especially if you're an American just hearing, the guy's not knowing what they're saying it just brings up so many goods Elijah and macabre and probably to.

Although recently, the the it's called out of the closet resale place on I did drop some shit over there that if you had walked in on the right day. Fuck you might have you might have wondered what happened, but my point being that Saturday, April six in in New York City. I want to add to your t-shirt. I gotta get an update on the count. But I, but I know there are few left Saturday six for our live show at the pit theater right by Madison Square gardens. We're gonna kick it off at three and everybody out and plenty of time and this small venue. I I'm you know, we haven't been in New York at a minute. And it's mania weekend's good. It's good. It's good. Things are happening to good people. The only thing that, you know, in the moment, I'm not as excited about but I'll get excited for well. Again. I I don't know this. I I'm all over the place. But there's so much to talk about Tana Hashi is not going to be the man with the Ida GP belt around his waist. Come New York City. Jay white will be. But Jay white is facing. The winner of the new Japan Cup match will be we don't know who's in the Cup yet. So who knows maybe I will get my Tallahassee title match just won't be with him coming in as a champ. I mean, there's there's good assumptions. To be made of who's going to be in the Cup. I just hope I get probably two singles match. But even if it's not not for the for that belt or those needs those names come on man at the garden. It's the held halls. It's so I mean, it's it's one of the things we like gosh. Put it this way had all elite been announced and started putting together its roster before the garden show had been announcing what kind of difference. Would it have made? Do you think that show still would've sold out? Maybe but not as quickly maybe not as quickly, right? I think because I mean, you know, the box and Kenny and well if it's funny. It's it's it's yeah. All those things. Yeah. Odi? Yeah. I mean newsman has not run the east coast. And so it really depends on how it was positioned. I think you know, it definitely ring ring of honor show. I mean, I guess it's a split show. But yet because that's the funny thing is I completely. I was like you're going to get Titus. You know, I mean, that's just the part and parcel to it better. You had to keep reminding tied as yellow. Oh, Christ almighty. Well, you know what? Because I've been bouncing around on the honor club because we did the right thing. Yep. And so I've been keeping up at the TV as of this year. The, you know, I'm keeping some New Year's resolutions ring, Varner television, and exte- television fried chicken before every game even try, you know, I I'm trying to do my best to to get into an XT UK. It's it's not for lack of want. Just hey, man. It's up to you kids to make this our main source of income. So that we can watch wrestling all day for you for you kids. Not doing it for me. You think I wanna sit around and what pro wrestling all day? Oh my God. It's arduous kidding me. Oh god. Even last night. I attempted to watch to five live and was just like, no, it's not happening. It was on. I had it on mute. Lajos part comes out for a big Seguin promo. And I'm like, oh, yeah. The all action show. Gets good Lucia house party out. There have them do a skit. I did see the the Gulick riddle match from last week's extol e shit, right? Really? Cool. Holy shit. Yeah. Yeah. Did you watch that whole show? I did. Yep. Who's what was what what's the guy's name Bander snatch or? Beautifully. You're getting field. You're gonna again gonna not not my Cup. So far too. I understand he showed up to the performance center in the lex suet. Can you do? And he's I wa I can go. Basically, they got the lead singer from Mana war to wrestle, but a something, but my recommendation is if you're gonna watch that episode of annex t don't do it in your office, which is conveniently located next year three year old son bedroom. I'm like fucking dude you need to stop doing that. I I keep the the volume button close at hand. Yeah. Unrelated to confusion view. Hey, I think what I wrote. I thought it was the sweetest chefs kid. I mean generation muppet. I did like the abdominal stretch. She did. And he starts playing air guitar on gulags ribcage. I was like, okay. You know at this has potential. Yeah. Oh, saying is as my first encounter. I I wasn't sold. But you know, it's funny too is his tights. You know, he's supposed to look like a hair metal guy. But it's it just speaks of the era of the eighties at self. I'm like, oh, yeah. He's just wearing rock-n-roll expressed types like it such wrestling tights. Yeah. Those that's what those are. Right. But in that context, I'm like, oh, right. I get it Hubin. Bloodhound blood haven. I did latte. So last week's ring of honor. Does a throwback Thursday where they put up a match. That's what I was gonna say. I realized okay, you can go back and watch the old TV's. But then it has that throwback thing. So lended at this la- last week's was this fucking awesome. Like twenty three minute match from twenty two thousand nine. Okay. It was Kenta and Tyler black. Oh, I saw Larry's. Yeah. And the Nakajima who's like in Noah, okay? Dude. What a we there for that. No. I don't think. So I was trying to figure out where it was. I was like, yeah. I didn't. I did not see that match. I may have seen another match that weekend. But but anyway. First of all what a what a reminder that that a lot of us didn't need that Kanta is is fucking so good. Well, it's funny because I was talking to somebody who was there at WWE, and they were just like how because I was like wow fucking day. Oh got his released New England. I sucked. And I was like, wow. Really, you know. But then here in melted talk about it. I forgot I remember this at the time. But it was like he was so Kenta Hideo. Tom is so worried about being labeled as stiff that he over compensated for a softer just before after he exploded Austin Aries orbital bone. I think it was probably around that time. He's like, oh, we're going to do something about this. Because Aries is also on the other side of that is Austin Aries, right? It was Aries in in Nakajima versus Kenta in. Tyler black riot Aries was. I mean, he was so good in this match. But in general, and I'm not saying that he isn't anymore. But it's just like he, you know, he's popped up. Here's popped up there. I don't you know, but Pete in this particular match if you if you see it he is he is just the best worst shitty. He'll. Over the top. Really, I'll watch. Yeah. It's it's it's one of those like. As long as a half hour sitcom, and it's over before it started because you're right. And and you're like, you know, sometimes you'll you'll be anticipating something like a match. Yeah. And then when it starts you're just like, I don't even want this at me people say fight forever. But you're going to watch this all day. Right. You know? Right. Like, there's no like all right. Like, let's let's go home here. You're just going like, okay. Let's just keep doing it. I remember sitting in gorilla. I don't even remember what. Not in guerrilla outside a guerilla. God what pay per view? It was or if it was a raw fuels Gareau. But it was it was they were doing punk versus Brian. And I was watching it on the monitor Scott Armstrong was just sitting there. And he just turns to me to nobody just says it out loud. He's like I watch these to wrestle all day. And I was like. Yeah. Man. That tag match on raw was fucking pretty dope. Oh, the revival. You know? It's hilarious is when they do that entrance Gable? In rude. Have they first of all let me jump back for so. Yeah. Have they slap them with a stupid mash up name yet? Like everybody else. You know what? I mean, how it's you know, I I this what I'll say not that I'm aware of but I related to that volume button thing. I got one figure on them you and I got one finger on a fast forward. That's that's my style. Well, if I'm gonna jump. I'll jump back another step again. I am I'm watching some shit. Good and want to have to text. You don't text me? Don't text me. I'm taking a page out of meltzer's book. I'm not. I'm not book of thousand words, he writes each week thirty thousand words each week. Everybody fucking really would be your friend. It you don't reading your friend, Brian. He's been on such since since the injury. He's just sitting on Twitter just being like fucking dumb. I don't know who's who's more frustrated with I think Charlotte, it's a work yet. She's just leaning into it. And she likes being a hill. Whereas Meltzer like truly as like fucking idiot. But at any rate, I'm not sitting here with my dumbbells doing curls and squats and not that page now that page when I got three hours of raw going on Monday. I have it. I'm like, I I check my mute and then pull up on my computer. I watched semantic sees some ring von or some. And there you go, you know. Yeah. Making a Monday happen. I'm on the high spots wrestling network. I'm more spots. Thank you. Hi spots. Thank you every day. I'm more than halfway through volume. One of wrestling at the chase. Okay. Holy shit, dude. Yeah. Right. Fuck it. We just had the anniversary of David von Eric's passing. Okay. He was twenty five when he died. Do not do fucking kidding me. Fucked up that's real fucked up because it's one of those things where you like you can't say, well, what would have happened. But it's like. Because here's the thing. Perfect and David obviously, but a decade in half between their deaths, but I think they both died on the same day. Oh, really we're somewhere around there. All right. And it's like look at curt Henning, and you're like, yeah. You know, like take take Awa Kurt heading, right? There's no way you could predict the Mr. perfect run, right? Sure. There's no way you could look at stunning Steve Austin and predict the stone cold Steve Austin, run, you know, there's no way you could look at a lot of different guys. I mean, hindsight's twenty twenty everybody's like, well, you know, he's a hell of a hand. He's got. But it's like David von Erich. You look at he was just getting into the height of it. Yeah. You know, for sure he had no physique. It's crazy. The natural. Bob. Body on David von Erich. But I mean like, I'm watching it and all the shit. I've seen of him. I'm like, oh, he's my fucking favorite von Erich. Yeah. Carries a meathead Ono, Hugh. David was David was the fucking man -solutely. There's no question. So it's like you put some mass on him. And I'm not the fucking body Mark of all. But even if like so looking at Tyler black in two thousand south around whatever in two thousand nine right now, or or I mean, Brian has sort of come back with Daniel, Bryan. It's like it's just sometimes you're only twenty five like, you're still look no further than like hangman page. It's like anybody can fucking figure it out. Yeah. David had a few to figure out New York. That's what I'm saying. That's what I'm saying. PSA's was always anytime. It would come up, you know, he'd be like David von Erich lived all be working for him right now. And I would always take that like well Michaels got a very unique much different experience and perspective that I do. But at the same time, I'm like, but you don't know. Nobody knows knows that fucking the world class was so fucking hot my brothers. I've said it before my brother's best friend growing up. John Baker loved the von Eric's, they're on fucking ESPN. And then it's like David died in what eighty four that's crazy. Yeah. I mean, I mean, I I mean, you're Brian. Yeah. No brody. It's like he would have had that fucking run with HOGAN and the garden if if if it hadn't gone down the way had gone down where he was going to come and try to break his arm. Menu one. Who was it? What's for only? What was the rumor who I who wanted to pay him to try to fuck that thing up? I don't remember. Now. My my brain is saying it was Bill watts but Paul Bosch. Lots to was to professional like, that's it. Sounds like an only Anderson move. It sounds. I can't remember who who's who? Anyway that the story. I'm sure everybody knows is just that someone wanted to pay bruiser Brody to to get a ticket to be and jumped the rail at wrestlemainia one in break Hogan's arm, and so that there champ would be looked like a pussy. Brodie's crazy. But tell me if you remember a lot of beef in that ring, you're gonna try to jump in piper. Fucking. Tease Nali Lee there. It'd be let's be honest. Muhammad Ali was there have you Pat. Patterson puts a cigarette on them. I can Rene Goulet was was. Do you remember? So I was watching the that. I watched a lot of shit the UN that unreleased eighty five ninety four whatever remember that DVD. It's like a three disc or I think ironically, I think I have three copies of. Okay. So I was there. It is right on the. Yeah. Eighty six to ninety five. Okay. So I was like I have one. And then I got was given to other ones. I was watching the some of that and earth earthquake Evans when earthquake was just wearing street clothes. All right. Like, a cowboy shirt and jeans? He was a factor in the front row. That's they did the hillbilly Jimmy that was so that was his beginning. Because I was right. I didn't remember earthquake Evans it was it was a weekend. It was the the introduction of him. Was somebody was like you you fat guy. Once you come in here and try to. He did. I mean, this is this is this is where my mind is jumping to. I'm not saying this is correct. It's almost it doesn't make sense. But I feel it was something like Dino. Bravo, the world's strongest man, he could do ups with anybody on his back, and they picked or quake or something. And then they became friends or some shit like that. I don't remember. But I totally remember him in street. Clothes just the fact on the front, and like, you know, people were like pick this guy because I mean, I guess for me 'cause he was just Hewitt. It was just a match. She was having a match wasn't like he just got out there. Like it's like the next week. And he's still just well at my gear isn't done. I'm going to have to wrestle in this cowboy shirt. Wow. That's Baird Gordon's gimmick that he says the guy in black clothes. He's Johnny cash. You're going to be. No bravo. I I love that. Was it a centers main event where he was doing the the the bench press and Ventura's there, and he and he clearly doesn't do it. Oh, inventory helped him. Yeah. I remember that. Awesome. I remember that with Frenchy Martin God. You could just speak the other language besides English. And it was heat. Oh my God. She's my God. Well, too bad the guy in charge still thinks it is. But I suppose that's the same thing of like when the he'll whispers into the heels ear, it's just like, I don't know. I don't know what you're talking about. Right. And it makes me mad. I used to work with a woman who like there were couple Mexican actually they weren't even mixing that reporter Rican, but they would speak to and Spanish sometimes, and it would make her crazy because well, clearly they're talking about me. And it's like, Honey that's on you. Nobody gives a fuck about you know, about you thinking about. Thinking about about you mill nascar's. I was I heard Jay white was on Jericho, and this is like from a few weeks ago. But I was happy to hear when the the incident in Long Beach came up with or was that the cow palace wherever JR got knocked over cow match the match of the night and Jericho's like, you know, you have to say anything he's like fucking. That's that's bullshit by Barnette to fucking come in there. He's gonna come in the ring and try to fucking ruin the match and fucking scoop in your unprofessional, and he's just like running him down. Yeah. He's just telling you what you don't say anything. I'll say fuck him. Well, I mean, it was so over the top that we're like, oh, wow. We're going to get a j white Josh Barnett programs here because like you stand up and Utah, and then you back down because you're a fucking announcer. You're not writing you don't like he he got all the way in the ring that night like Jay white had to leave the red to run away cheese. Here's a fucking beg off. It's like, oh, the only logical conclusion is we're going to a program. Oh, no. That's a psycho. Oh, I will say I will consider that. I don't think I'm speaking out of school, but our friend of the show and friend in life. Danny Kuna said he just had a nice conversation with Josh Burnett at the meat counter. Danny's butcher came by Bernie came by for some. He didn't say what he was getting all. That's my question. What's is cut? I feel like he did takes stake in eggs. He did give he gave me. I wanna say pork chops able Graefin or one of the bad religion guys their order around Christmas Eve. He he rallied it off for me. That's incredible. Yeah. That's incredible. Anyway, so Barnard, I guess can be polite in public at times. He was very polite with me when he sat down to fast PWG barrel over them. Again, we were both at fault, but mostly him. Well, what are your feelings on Jay, wiping, the international wrestling grand prix champion? I guess I didn't realize how quickly this was going to happen. They pull the fucking trigger on that guy thought from day one. I got my Jay white t shirt I saw from day. No. I I've always liked Jay white. And I do like Jay white. And I think that. Because I have so much trust in that company engaged. Oh, I'm like, okay. Let's let's see what happens. You know? It's like it feels a little early. But, but because you know, they have my trust. I'm right. Okay. Well, then it'll work new Japan is make it work. Yeah. Japan is a company where you can say. Well, let's wait and see. And you're not gonna get bird. It was thought out. It was you know, right? It's it's like when I watched raw ants when I watch WWE main roster. Right. I just have to enjoy myself if something is happening that I like, I'm as happy as a clam at high tide. If something is happening that makes no sense to me. I just have to laugh because you know, like, Vince coming out at the end of raw and just arbitrarily, you know, who've instrument is he's he's remember that lady who like tried to restore that painting of Jesus herself. Oh, yeah. Bins money just comes paper. She's like, well, they might forgive me. But I don't forgive you. You you're not the man, I'm the man I thought you were to say he reminds you of more Ganda the kissing bandit. But. And also too. There's no this is not me saying, oh like. Nothing everything always works in new Japan. It's in I'm just saying that because of how things go there, if it doesn't work, it will will get out of it in a way that doesn't make me feel stupid, or you know, that's all I mean to say not that like, oh, of course, it's gonna work because everything works. That's not what I'm saying. I'm just saying sure sure when something happens, and you're like, okay. And it's not like because sometimes you're supposed to sit there with rod be like, well, I have to bend for the Dow to see where the story goes. It's like, well there's been too many times. Right. So that's all I mean to say, I I mean, I have faith. The fact is ghetto books new Japan two years out. Okay. Vince can't even do it two weeks out how how long ago was the you're the authority. We're going to have new faces. There's going to be changed your the thorny. He's out there his mouth. He says that the fans you are the thority last Monday. He walks out and says. You're not the man, I'm the man, and it is one of those things where I'm like, I think it's hilarious. I went back. I was on Aaron Foley's a sports show sports without balls. Right. And she really knows. Next zilch about pro wrestling, and she's very interested women's wrestling. So I was laying down the history of the sport the history of the art and has given us some some key names in wrestling today. And and I was like as far as WWE goes. I mean, my favorite wrestlers, Becky Lynch, so she's Ahrends very interested. I gave some names. She's like I want to have some women wrestles on the show. And like, I got great news for you. You live in southern California. There is a glut of fantastic female wrestling, including February twenty four th at the I hat Ella urban fight pro wrestling Helo, poor tuna broker ankle. She's out. I know other Monroe is in though, I mean talk about but tuna is going to be in the Bill does she will be there? What are you trying to say? She has confirmed that she is going to be there in the. Hi, how are you? Are you suggesting that she may insert herself in that match? Somehow fucking kidding me sicker broken foot out. And she's got a broken ankle or something. She's in a boot. Well, Heather Munroe will need no assistance. But the regardless. You've got jungle boy on that car. Jake. Atlas Darby Alan Darby. Alan, obviously Priscilla is also in the Kelly the in the main hells favourite harlot favorite it, also the the rock Nass making their suburban fight debut. I am all about it's gonna be. It's gonna be a good show. So you may have missed the fifteen dollar tickets, but don't fuck up and miss tickets altogether. So be there don't fucking square. Don't fuck up watch some shit. I love that. Those are the three you know, like it's perfect. That Heather is wrestling Priscilla Kelly. You know, because it was tune in Priscilla than before that it was tuna and Heather. Yeah. Love this. But so my point being Becky Lynch. So I'm like looking through some old shit of like that the night after. Summer slam, you know, when Becky made her big turn on Charlotte. And then she explains herself on on smackdown. I don't know when the last time probably you haven't seen it since it happened. I would imagine that promo. But it's like she's trying. A Russian every night before I go to bed. Well, god. Damn. I was I was miss informed. It's one of those things where it's like what she was the hill. And they're doing their best to make the heel. And every step of the way, the crowd is like, no we fucking love you, and she so bad ass. And then I reached the the cutting edge where she's like, you're right edge. I don't like myself love myself now get outta my ring. Try not to hurt your neck while you're climbing through the ropes, you know, her attacking Charlotte at the photo session. Her invading raw getting the bloodiest knows you've ever seen like wiping it off on her hands to the point where you like did she punched through a glass window like Goldberg her hands or so blood and then walk into the crowd. Then you go Monday. She's like am. I going to apologize. Am. I not gone. Woah, Paula joys. It's like the theme of the night. And I'm like, I just have to laugh I have to laugh because I'm like, it is preposterous because I in my mind, I think of well, she's the closest thing I've ever seen too. John cold Steve Austin since the heyday twenty years ago, if they had done the thread, the whole night of like stole gold, you need to apologize. Do you think what it's been? It's because it's been McMahon because visit man's mind. He's like there's nothing worse than saying. You're sorry right week. I got it guys. I know people are going to be beside themselves is Becky Lynn, she's going to fucking Pala, John. It's like it's like in that Andre dock where he's like. He basically is going like. It started to make me sad. So I fucking. Yeah. Put that away. Right. That wasn't going to happen. That's right. God I've a way of not feeling things. I deal with those special web own special way of dealing with things that make me upset berry berry berry it alive. But even before the the the apology the three hour apology show. I feel like it was already like the chip had already been removed from her shoulder a little bit like, oh, look no further than the night that she walked by an Otis making his milkshake and she stops to take. I'm like, she should've taken the fucking thing and hit him over the head with it been like at the focal out of my way. I'm going to miring, you know. Yeah. When when Roddy piper would turn baby face when Rick flair returned baby face when Stowe cold turn baby face when the rock turned baby face. They were still the same guy. You know with Becky, it's it's like, well, she's got this whole fits is obsessed with people smiling there is so smiling and so much laughing. When like they did the little insert of Bailey and Sasha. I'm like, why are they laughing then they had the insert with the someone's. To me. And I and I'm just like why is nihil at like, they keep laughing like, it's just this bizarre. You're gonna be smiling. B's argued it's it's, but it's not bazaar because it makes sense. Vince McMahon is sitting up there, and he's just like all right? Baby faces maybe smile. Being a bizarre. Did you see there was like a graphic that they had? So that you could understand how the the women's tag chamber would work. So it was like oh my God. So it's like there's like the two people in the pods. Right. The the teams in the ring while I love the pictures of them standing there with their dead arms next to their. Well, it was almost like, you know, when you get your pictures done. They like do they the? Yeah. And then they just like, but the whole thing was so weird and crappy and the idea that you wouldn't be able to be like, so how is the chamber for the tag in the work? When in fact, they have done it before. I mean, obviously to me. But yeah, I mean, I don't fucking remember. I'm sure I watched it, of course. But I mean, it's just weird to be like. The picture. You gotta show them a picture. There's doctors and lawyers in the crowd watching. But. Got to know and understand your writing for yourself. You not writing to the fans. I'm like that's ironic that you're telling me that, sir. Okay. Jay, white L. Find of course. That's the point. No. I mean, I think he. Yeah. I'm Andrzej Salat. So here's not not an aside. Like, oh, they're so you like what he's been doing on? No all night. I'm Tana guy. You know that? Where were you when Tana Hashi needed you when his knees, he has no knees left? You got you got on your good knee. That's your goodness. You got zero to no cartilage you've got chronic to. And then Tashi like let me ask you something. We're not shy bail to get around comfortably for the rest of my life and his doctor new Japan leg. This should give you crippling debilitating pain. You shouldn't be able to get around. Now. That being said, I mean, obviously Tana she's knees are shit but him. Selling them. And even just in the beginning of the match the way he would run and stuff. He's running like, he's got a dumping his pants. It's just like, it's brilliant. I don't know how how hard he has to try to sell the pain that he's actually in. So you think that that's the factor? It's not that he was spending too much time at the salon getting the haired. And not concentrating and Jay white the attention that he needed. He's down there. He's spending half the he should be in the gym clang bang and he's done there at the air guitar center. You know, trying on new new axes? As soon as he saw baragan Carrigan. He was like, no. Oh. Bergen Qurban kurban magin of curb another. Did you ever see they used to show it on VH one? Sometimes when Mana war broke the Guinness Book of world records for the loudest band, ever know, they had footage of like the guy from Guinness with all their equipment at like the studio with them. And it's like they're playing. They're seeing. And then at the very end the guy from Guinness. He goes, no one has ever played that loud ever. What about man mountain rock the ever what about it ever break any records like that? Did man mountain rock ever got interrupted with a severance package when he was trying to rock rock a silly. I mean, I it was two five started. And I was like, oh, this is going to be the second Lucia house party fucking segment. I'm going to endure I don't think. So. And it's it he's got a laugh three of some of the most talented wrestlers. You could imagine. It's like give them a fucking pin yada. Make sure they explained to the crowd. We're here to entertain you stand up until the room would opinion. Put inside of opinion. What does that translate to in English? Oh, candy puppet. Candy week. I feel opinion with steak getting tickets to double or nothing was no easy task Moley. Thirty still in that waiting room. I am a patient. Boy, I Wade and Wade and Wade and wait I gotta give shout nNcholas Ross for Monday. Was it Monday. Yeah. When was the pre-sale Monday. Yeah. He was 'cause I 'cause Vince like all right?

None of an and I'm like, and I'm sitting there like the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. I do sin ticket purchasing, though, we we have found brother. But sometimes you gotta just keep beating your head against because here's the thing. Here's the thing. I tried split seats. None of it came up. I try clicking on individual sections, nothing come up. But every time I would hit next, and it would refresh. I noticed that some sections would disappear. So am I all right? People are so I'm like people are buying tickets. There are still tickets there. But I'm not getting access to them just going to keep hitting next. And I kept hitting next until it gave me two seats and section two to up there with Bob euchre with the nose bleeds. I think that what it is. Because p people who are getting through some people are then being like, I don't want those seats or they're not finishing their purchase. It's like you're still in the game. Right. But you don't know for how long until it's like, you're fucked. Well, here's the thing is is as you're sitting in the waiting room hate in life. They keep sending you updated messages access does. And one of them is don't refresh. Don't don't leave the page. Yeah. You know, you have your spot line. Then it tells me I'm going to be put in a random pool. So I'm like, so why do I have a spot in line? If it's going to be random, how the fuck does that make sense? And then everyone. I only saw it. Once every time. It was like, please be patient. You you your time is coming soon. Don't worry. We got you covered. Once in a while the only time I saw it was once once popped up. It says just because you're in the waiting room doesn't mean you're gonna get a ticket. Refresh motherfucker. We're in the building. But then I can always kind of Vince it's like that that the hand of God the hand of Mick Foley comes down from heaven. And it's VN's you need to get some good seeks. I was like I got to leave for Matt's house. But what I gotta do. I is put my ass back in this waiting room. And I'm telling you when it when it first came and was like, here's what's laughed like they didn't leave a whole lot after the presell. So it was it was a lottery lottery win like corner sections in the lower. I don't even know if there's anything else, but we we are now in the lower bowl. So those first two seats, you know, we'll figure out so maybe maybe we run a little contest you're on a show or patriot or somewhere, we'll figure something out is that in fact with the community is that ethical. Sorted out. But we'll be there. And thank you to the people who've reached out to star cast to remind them that we should also be involved in star cast, in some way, shape or form. Yeah. Yeah. Kids if you're listening on your Twitter and let the people at star cast Conrad where it is you wanna get ahold. Forgot about dre. You got you got to remind him. Either way. We'll be in Vegas. Oh, I'm sorry. I don't have a Netflix special on right now. Meet us at the you know. Tropicana, and we'll be playing craps learn how to play craps. Oh, oh, absolutely. But for for the rest of y'all land suck my dick form to the right? And you know, and so now the next the next day anxiety is around getting tickets for that new Japan show in Dallas. But we'll cross that bridge when we get there. Oh, boy, the another fun. Hopefully, that's TicketMaster Jesus Christ. It's not it's gonna be fucking access. Probably I well, you know, it's building building who the dealing with. Yeah. Definitely. It just depends on what the who the permit. Dallas isn't that fucking? What's fucked from? So here's any any live nation building. Yeah. Is going to be is almost going to always be TicketMaster. So like Vegas is probably MGM's not going to be. So that's why that was access I'm guessing. So I think hopefully, it'll be a TicketMaster show. But I mean, not that not that Eddie veteran wrong about those mother fuckers. Do they hold back seats? Don't don't get me going on tickets. Now what what the whale back backseats? And then they then they put them up his premium Vince, don't get up, and it's like, okay fucking everybody. She's everybody's. Everybody is on Sunday, man. Can you believe it our canning, it's the chamber again? You know, what I didn't realize until Monday was rand man. Oh my God. Randy went again smackdown. Went off the air. And I just started howling laughing owes. I here's the change. You want? Ordonez gonna win this fucking gauntlet at. So it was it was perfect. It was perfect like Kofi Kingston once again workhorse. Everybody loves them, they're all behind him. And then, you know, it's been fourteen years fight me. And according to Meltzer, they did a a subtle tribute to Pedro Morales with the finish of Samoa, Joe and Kofi Kingston their thing. I guess that's how. Pedro won the belts. Okay. I guess against. Cole off. Okay. I was unaware. I thought they were gonna do a subtle NADA. When Kofi was the boom, right? Randy in the garden rice. Nope. It was too perfect. I mean Kofi it's just he's one of those guys where you're just like he needs to turn heel. They broke up the fucking the shield is fast as they could, you know, whereas new day, it's still just like. Yeah. Co-financed Turnhill on the new day and just become one of like top guy. Yeah. I mean, for God's sakes deans headed you. You think dean's? He's gonna go work for dragon gate or what what's what's next for teen? Ambra you think he's headed back for combat zone. He's like I just got to do one more king of the death match. And then I'll look at my options. Are he's got to be going. All right. I mean, so it makes sense you'd have to think unless he's just like Renee, I'm going to be in Japan for a while. Because that's really the only it's either new pan or Elliot's not going to ring her in less Sinclair's just like while. They busted up the checkbook. Yeah. But it does seem like just sitting here you have to be saying like it feels like all lied is. The is the only. Is the most logical answer. But I can't if I was on that roster. I would wanna get the fuck as soon as they showed that Kevin Owens promo at the bowling alley. I was like oh this poor. Fuck he needs to get the fuck out of there and go straight to fuck. And you know, so because his contractor out there Gabino fucking ninety day. So he can he could be at double or nothing. Really? Yeah. Because I if it's if it's just your contract isn't being renewed that they don't have any fucking. You gotta sit home there's no non compete there. But when they renew it know what I'm saying. Oh, if he's he's already said, it's not about money. I'm not resigning and his current contract. Runs out at some point in April Steen. No ambrose. Oh ambrose. All right. Well, you know whose contract was also up in April. The flom. No one really, oh, really really fair. An Mr. add styles. He's got a little market value. Yeah. Oh, ooh. I dunno. He saw a lot of fucking gloves and t shirts and WWE. We'll see what he wants to do. The gay community. God damn I watched so much wrestling. I watched some Shia I love it. You gotta get into that Saint Louis the chase. All right. I've watched some of it in the past. But I'll I will ris up. What's funny because it's one of those things where you hear about you know, that they were just the way they booked it was just logical and. And you can see. I mean, I could see it just all right there. They had I wrote it down who's very sophisticated sophisticated. I mean, just like the the, you know, it was in the hotel at the chase in Saint Louis. Right. Right. And it and the so that sort of even at the time, right? The stigma of the smoke filled armory or whatever it was like it was already the clientele felt a little more upscale air. You. Did you look at anybody? Of course. I mean, everybody in the car. I mean, what happened to the old ladies where are the old ladies at wrestling shows anymore? I don't understand how run off they say did they are are you in an off teed. I just refuse to believe that elderly women don't still enjoy watching pro wrestling. It was not a phenomenon of the well here here's one option where these where these people that were still hanging on from watching in the fifties bay may they may very well still be watching it on a fixed income a wrestling ticket. That's what it is. You're right. If they are there they got to be up in the in section two two with us. These women were ringside every fucking week. Yeah. I think it's just misses Krieger, I mean, all of them. I think there's been obviously, some changes the product. But also, the financials don't match up. Yeah. Yeah. You're right. Because this would have been like five bucks for front row. Probably. Yeah. Who knows? Stalk stinks. It's funny too. Watching the chase because it feels like studio wrestling. Yeah. Because it because it's not an arena, right? But then it's like. Thinking back of you know. In receipt. A. That was about the size of a studio wrestling crowd. You know? Oh, I think that's that's bigger than a lot of the studio wrestling. I think is you know, was that row of seats. You saw was that. Yeah. It might you might only like in Memphis. It might not even been two hundred people in there. Well, what's interesting is? James wrestling from Hollywood, which we ride my consider going back to right and some years. They've they've they've turned over. We're always allowed to go. We need to go some some new town over there. But Lucia underground that was a studio restaurant show. And that was very like especially that first weekend, we went it was like it was they it was straight up like a TV show like TV people. And I think that's the difference though. Is that you got some of that. But but they tried to present it like, they weren't right? Wasn't a studio. Whereas when you talk about a studio wrestling show, it didn't matter. It didn't take anything away from it. It was just like now we're down at you know, KTLA or whatever the writing and and the wrestling shows happening in here today. But I mean, like the one that I always think of obviously is W WCW Saturday night like the old like not the not six oh five with fucking Chevonne. And then they throw. Up fat boy, and he'd go over what the flags in the backdrop. That's yeah. But at any rate. Where the old ladies? I don't know. Here's the old ladies gone, Dave Eric versus Jean Stevens at one point during the match you could hear it because it's it's such a small crowd. You can pick out individual voices. Sometimes one guy he just kept shouting. He's just like kick him in the face. Loved. Here's what it was Billy star, and Brian Saint John versus Bob sweet hand and bruiser Brody sweet hand tried to interfere like it's tacky match. Yeah. He jumps the ropes tries to double team. Right. A fucking second referee that was outside the ring that I didn't even know as there he jumps in and stops sweeten from fucking interfering. And I'm like, oh, this is a level of like we are not going to salt your intelligence why. Because there there were moments on this on this tape where it was like, oh, the referee didn't see something and people were bullshit about it like when dick Murdoch won the Missouri state championship. Yeah. From dick the bruiser. It which in and of itself. I was like, oh, wow. He's putting the belt on the line. And then when state Larry Madison's like, it's the Missouri state championship. I'm like that just brought it down a little bit. Like, he's a state champion like a high school kid. So it's not like on not not exactly a world championship. Sure. But it's also not exactly like on smackdown on the women's tag. When one of the teams just went in and kicked. Oh, say it kicked a. What the fuck is the word. I'm looking for a Tim my brain anyway right in front of Mike iota. One person comes in the writing breaks up some shit drags the other person the corner and just going. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's a Larry. She broke up a pin kicked fucking Bailey. Pose the other one over. Yeah. While Saint Louis like a second ref comes in and be like, no, no you stay in your corner. Rules is rules is rules. It was incredible. So that I was like, okay. I can see this Saint Louis thing of like, we're presenting it very lot of bruiser Brody couple of he insisted on saying wrassling. No matter. How many words he was going to pronounce correctly? He always said wrassling. It's fucking thing of beauty like needs to be said. But I mean, it's like fucking bruiser Brody on the my in the ring the look the size the fucking the Mike work insane. This the fate you hold a package before the total package. I shiver little packets king gong Brody bruiser, Brody, whatever you wanna call him. Frank goodish, the total you could. Here's here's the test. You can watch bruiser Brody promo on mute and still be fucking entertained. That's that's a level of of sophistication. What else did I see? Dick Murdoch versus Brian Saint John. This was great because then dick the bursar walks down. He's just like no fuck this. I'm like he he tries to take Saint John's place in the match because he's got a problem with dick Murdoch and San Mushek comes out the promoter. Yeah. Right. And it is it's one of those other things where they're like why why for years years and WWF did Vince half to insist on pretending that he wasn't in charge of the promotion. Yeah. This thing, you know. It's it's it's it's still the way the guy's brain operates is like you can't say wrestler. You have to say superstar. It's like it's so wrestling show. You can't say wrestling just doesn't sane? You just have to laugh at them. Yeah. Any right mush it comes out. And then dick the bruisers like I'll put my belt on the line. And then he's like Murdoch you want to go for the like, all right? We'll go for the so so. Mushek makes the fucking match right? So was it either before that are after this. But Murdoch doesn't an interview afterwards. Because then you see his first and dick the bruisers voice. Oh my God. Nineteen seventy-nine. I'm sure it was never. I mean, it sounded like wet sand paper. I don't know that. That's exactly how home I I mean, he ended up on the radio in Detroit shut the fuck up. He used to be on one of the like AM zoo crew, so older than this. Oh, yeah. For I mean, I can remember right? But his voice was always insane. Oh my God. Yeah. Like like unnatural like what what is caused this? It's it's like it's like, dude. Have you gotten checked by a dog? Was this your voice in the third grade? Can I ask you? I mean my God in heaven. So then. I I don't know that I've ever I've heard the name Pat O'Connor, but I've certainly never watched dick Murdoch defend his belt against paddle clan. And Pat O'Connor, then it'd be at the tail in fall right nineteen seventy nine and he was an old, man. Then I was gonna say I have enjoyed some sweeten in the past. I didn't know sweets, Bob sweet. I just love the fact that his name his name is sweet town Sweden. It's like no sweet tan. Ryan. Yes. So fucking Billy. Who else? Oh so much. Nick does a this was amazing. This was amazing K. This is this is clever book. These are the two last points wanna make on Saint Louis. Murdochs in there with Pat O'Connor. Murdoch. And it's and it's one of those things too. I'm like God pedal. Connors fucking great mansion what he was like when he was twenty five. Yeah. He gets busted open. I forget what Murdoch. Did I think it might have just been into the turnbuckle, honestly? And it was a hell of a fucking not like because now because I'm picturing, you know. Monday night with ruby riot NICKY cross. Right. And I love I love I love fucking ruby riot. I got a lot of things to say about that too. Because I didn't even realize she was challenging Ronda Rousey on Sunday until they right? Among the oh, by the way, ruby riot's gonna be in the W B dubs. You know, the main storyline tonight is about the mania main event with row rounder wrote rose about but rubies gotta shot. Ruse gotta show. He's got a show. What could go wrong, but she got she got one of those, you know. Scissor leg boom into the corner. Loved it. Nikki crosses unbelie. I love they matches on annex t. But here's the. Pat O'Connor gets busted open, right? Dick, the bruiser as we've already established. You got a real fucking problem with dick Murdoch k to Dix. Yea to see dick dick violence. Can't we all just get along can't all the Dick's just get along? So bruiser comes down and he interferes in the match, and he starts chasing around Murdoch. And he just beat the shit out of them immediately. Because you're like. Pat, O'Connor's fucking legend. He's getting a shot at this belts. Yeah. Immediately Madison gets on the stick. You know, he's doing the player play. He's like whether Murdoch is a member of the clan or not it has nothing to do with this match tonight. These these are things that have been rumored in the world. Madison is very quick to point out that dick the bruiser inserted himself into the match. Once Pat O'Connor started bleeding because dick the bruiser couldn't stand idly by and let dick Murdoch beat the shit out of a bleeding and battered legend, Pat O'Connor did what the referee wouldn't do what a stop to the thing that is. So because he's because I interference. I'm like, you know, I'm getting that Faye? And reaction of like why the fuck like I'm starting to get pissed off with bruiser, right matters. Like is very quick to point out. No, no. He's still a good guy. He was still good motivations. And he saved Pat O'Connor. And I was like oh, right. He wasn't in their costing pedal. Connor the match. He was saving Pat O'Connor's life. Yeah. It's fucking brilliant. And then the other thing was Murdoch than gets on appointing. The head pointing at the head. Murdoch does an interview. And it's one of those things where I was like. Because I'm already thinking about when they finally pulled the trigger on acknowledging Vince was in charge of WWF. And then how it's changed now where that is the fixation and the focal point is like, well, who's in charge is is the most important thing on the show, clearly who's ever running everything is paramount to everything. You watch this interview took Murdoch, and I forgot I was like. Oh, yeah. That's right. It was the heels that used to complain about the promoter saying that the promoter had screwed them. And it's this hilarious bizarro world where it's like now, it's the promoters screwing baby faces. Yeah. And there is the strange implication of will the baby faces can't do anything about it. Because there's nowhere else to go. Just fucking amazing. Boy dog, but to our earlier earlier point, I love when they did the the glorious with the probably rude, and Chad Gable entrance. Yeah. They do that entrance with the robe and then turning around. And when they were done. I was like oh my God. Chad gable? Now does it better than Bobby rude? Careful now care careful on on one of those on released DVD's there's a couple of matches from the night after wrestlemainia five like how show looks like doesn't. Oh, right. Yeah. Dude. Yeah. It's like Andrei is so so miserable and just going like don't why are they getting tight on the face here. Like, there's just no way to read this other than he is ready to die. And there was like a quick moment when they pull out here comes fucking big John stud that he he says something to Andrei as he's leaving the ring and Andre starts laughing. And I was like thank fuck. I mean, he's he has ability. And then the other the other thing that and then, you know, him just moving around just it's just horrible. Yeah. And then the other thing another. Another match was warrior in macho and and warrior looked horrible moon around the ring because he was horrible. Oh fuck God. Come on. Let me get an ultimate warrior blast in here. Man. We gotta gum balls this week, man. Yeah. We gotta dumb, brother. Hey, guys. Hey vents. What's up guys are terrible taking care of their health?

Can Kenyan right something like that Kenyon? Or is that I'm thinking of the we better not go into this right now. No. Hey, hey, it's not just pro wrestlers. I'm guilty of it myself, Vince is guilty of Vince you ever sustained an injury and say to yourself. Oh, no. I mean, there's been I'm fine. I've had several times where I was hurt and or sick. And I was just like let me just ride this out, right? Rather than take care of it. We're going to wait and see. Yeah. It's not the way to do things.

This guy is talent relations. I think the doctors you all that, you know, but I will say as far as like going having need to go to the store or go to the doctor or something you don't want to. I think the original the O G asking for a friend was my brother, and I had gotten headlights from from baseball helmets. And there's remember going into the Arbor drugs with my mom, and my mom being like, hey, where's the the lice shampoo? It's for a friend of mine like even as a little like no one believes that too little crawl. Say my head shaved my head. Take my hair take my life. Remember, the Tommy Djerma promo w. Yeah. Man, whatever I gotta do to get to you raven. What about raven take my hair take my life while I love that on Monday when triple h was like, Becky fears. Rhonda, I'm like, Sabbath fears, TASR SEB affair says Vince fears Bischoff, I was like this is a throwback starting to get excited by who we're gonna see a wrestle com. We'll probably see a Sabah running through their nose with. What's what's her name the genie? Yeah. I can't think of the genie's name is she's got just such a regular name. It's like genie, Sarah or something. Bethany, right. Oh god. Hell, yeah. Clearly people at Roman have no idea.

Kyrie's sane goddamn e o Shirai, dude. You know, it's you know, that NFC shows can be red hot. But always is the takeover. So this point. Yeah. Arpey on reproach guy. We don't have to choose to invent you. Thank you book you buy. But for this Sunday. What are you looking forward to anything or any specifics here? Here's what I needed to get off my chest about ruby riot. And when I was watching didn't go, man. No, oh, share it. And let it go. Nope. No. I'm watching it. And I don't I don't DVR. I don't have DVR. It's I used to. And I'm like, no. I'm never watched anything. I'm just accruing designer stuff going back. No. I wish I could learn and never go back. This is this is the thing. Right. So I'm watching it. And I I'm almost positive. I heard Michael Cole say what I thought Michael Cole said so the next day on the Hulu cut. I'm looking forward, of course, the ruby right matches in there. So now, I go on YouTube, and of course, YouTube it's chopped up on like, so I finally tracked down the full unedited match. Because I'm sitting there, and I'm like because they keep pushing this fact of like, you know, ruby riot. She might win on Sunday. You know, I know that there's all this talk about an it's just it's so it's like, yeah. This is why you don't. This is my new Japan doesn't announce what, you know, three months from now fucking, you know, even next week's card is going to be right. So we get through this week's card type of thing the show sold out. It's not like they need to. Yeah. Yep. Show sold out other than those premium seats, they've got on TicketMaster. Don't get. So and I'm like, wait, a second did Michael Cole just say, you know. What I heard? I was like I have to go back and check this. What I heard was coal being like does anybody actually think ruby right is going to win on Sunday, not many people? But still there's the and I'm like, wait. There's no way he said that it this. This is what he said. All right. This is what he said I like my coffee by the poom ready to hear this hopefully kids, can you know, this at home. Shape paper, you that? Because movie is extremely dangerous is anybody give it the chance. Can't the way he says it now has anybody given Rubia chance not many people. I'm just like, right? But we're still pretending. It's insane. It's insane. It's also ruby riots better than that, ruby riots shouldn't be some. I mean, it's it makes sense because it's like we'll put her in there with ruby rubies a hell of a hand. She'll give her a great match go out there and let let let the kids. See what does you see girl can do for fifty minutes? Go go, let them with his German kit can do ruby. Ryan ryan. Well, I mean, maybe they if you couldn't hear that I'm playing that. It's out in my head. Right. Yeah. Not many people many people take my coffee by the pool. Maybe they, you know. No. I don't know. It's it's such. It's it's bizarre world. So while we're talking about the riot squad. I go you're going after Logan again, Maddie. I mean, here's here's now. I'm used to just bother me. Now, I'm angry. 'cause I was gonna make the point of like, you know, why does say are Logan dress like she is a member of the war raiders. She's a member of the riot squad. Yes. When they came together there were three different individuals K live Morgan she basically should dress like Carmella. Okay. That was her gimmick in an XT chooses. Kind of. Will we already have come rela? Why do we have lived Morgan? She changed it up. You know, she's got the the pastel hair the fucking the kind of Scott pants the fucking the tongue yelling. Yeah. Live Sarah Logan is wearing she's just like he now she's a warrior by blood not relation. His what makes me insane. First of all Sarah Logan is twenty five. So that's that's the eight because when they showed that that interview with live Morgan and Sarah Logan, you know, up close interview with all of this in there. And I'm looking earlier like oh my God. She she looks so young. She does look very young. She's like looks like a baby I was amazed. She was that old. But then I was old as they've on Eric when he died, this is the other thing, I'm like how the fuck was Dave on air twenty five when he died dude look at an old yearbook. There's just something about the way people age that's crazed or something. That's pure speculation crazy too. So but at any rate the God damn. The point. I was gonna make was imagine. If the war raiders had a third member who is a guy with purple hair who like renamed t shirt, right? It would it just it doesn't compute. So then I'm like, well, maybe she's just always done this thing. And I'm like, I don't even know who Sarah Logan is where she came from our even a hold shifts. That's where there was set me on the young. I'm gonna Google Sarah Logan. She this. What made me nuts? She used to do a crazy girl gimmick and she used to dress. So I'm like oh. So it's not difficult for you to dress for a gimmick. Right. You know, because there's there's this one thing of like, you know, because I saw pictures from their wedding. And like, they you know, it looked like it was Braveheart and they had their little blown a horn. You know? Yeah. There you do your reenactment in the woods with your foam, bats, or whatever. Yeah. I get it. I get it fine. But I mean, it's like not on TV. I understand. Oh, well, that's who. I am. It's like, well, it's pro wrestling so dressed like a fucking more. Or the flipside is you've got. Ruby and live and live. And it's like this is the riot squad. We are we know that were weird. And and we're we're open, and and we've found this Viking woman. And and we're okay with the fact that you are like, but but just you have to dress that you have to be like, here's the story made all the more obvious by the fact that live has shifted her look to match with ruby. You know, doesn't dress totally like ruby. But is in that realm. Yeah. Like, I've said it before they come across to me as mean girls in high school who did acid would make fun of you while they're were triggered this is just I mean, that's mean-spirited when you're shipping, and you're making fun of people. That's mean spirited, you know, when you're disagreeable, and like we're going to do acid. Fuck you. That's their gimmick to me. And then you got the fucking Jeff throw toes. Fucking oldest daughter just being like well songs from the woods. It's just it's, but, but if you look at pictures of Sarah Logan on the indie scene tonight, even write down what her name was. It was like mad Mary one of our trainers was mad man Pondo. So that gives you a lot. This is what I'm saying. What this is what I'm saying. This is what I'm saying has she ever taken a weed whip to the face. Probably there's pictures of her like just. Here's a crazy girl. That's pretty crazy. Hold on. Let me pull it up. Because now now holding I feel like you don't believe me the kids at home. Don't believe me. Everybody thinks I'm full. She it. Sarah Logan, was known as crazy Mary. Dobson. Okay. I somehow heard that name and she was not dressing like a God damn. Invite crazy, Mary Dobson let me pull up pictures of Mike Dobbin Dobbins. Yeah. Dobson. Okay.

But again, it's this outfit is fits in more with the fucking riot squad. Okay. Then she does. Now that she's a member of the riot squad. Okay. With the lick the skull and the stuff. Yeah. Well, that's before she even this thing with the with the kooky little became a north woman. She's a nurse woman. She's dressing like the beserk Haas Haas. Just obviously, obviously, I'm the one with the problem. Not a lot of time for warlord or the beserk for me personally. But oh, the boulevard four, oh, you're such a warlord mar object of art form. Look at her with her stupid with with the barb wire bad and the fucking mass. Yeah. Mattie, you're gonna need let this one go, brother.

No, this is not your hill to die on Matthew. Ring of honor. Let me tell you about some some fucking ring of honor Powell, okay? They ended last week show with a juice Robinson promo. First of all they had Nick all this PJ black for the NWF title. Hell fuck it match. Also got me thinking if we hadn't. Gotten our tickets for all leap, I was seriously going to consider science Hume. Well, Vince, maybe we make our way over to the Crockett Cup. It's not impossible. When is it? It's it's the end of. This month vamp. Yep. Well, here's the deal, right? At the end of the ring of honor show. Juice Robinson comes down for promo. Okay. And he starts talking about. And it was and it was a great promo segment. He starts talking about when I said, you're going to be seeing a lot more juicier than ring of honor. I meant not once in a while not just for global wars not just for you know, in new Japan is in town. I wanna be here and be a part of ring of honor. And. The lights hit and the lights come back up. And he's in the ring with him. What's her name ama-? Oh, yeah. What's her name? Tailored deville. What is it whatever? Yeah. Amazon there. David Finley Mark Haskins. Tracy Williams and Bandido all the recent you know, in Bandidos a big get for ring of honor. And he him and Haskins had a fuck hell of a man. Oh my God. You know? And again, it's one of those things you're sitting there watching it. I'm sitting there watching them. Like, man, we we knew how good we had PWG. But it's at the same time. You just like you can't appreciate how great you had it. Right. You know? And now with all leap pop up and ring of honor spending, some money and WWE having more money than fucking God. It's just indie towns can be scoop scoop scoop scoop scoop scoop scoop in Pedo ever going to be the same. But there's always room at the top for the next top guys to come up. You know, but I'm like that was so much better than the way. They've been sprinkling out the new phases on Ron smacked. I mean, it's just like. It's it's just a Larry even hearing. So the other thing when Jericho nj where we're talking and Jericho like there's like a show where they were going like people weren't even sure who it was when they were doing my videos at I remember like the switchblade videos like there's and jerk was like, yeah. I remember there was one show where they're like we're going to run your video the billion this. He's like, no, no, you can't you don't do don't do to do either do me or do him. But don't like, right and heaven forbid, don't put fucking six people altogether. Here's all these hot new people that you should be excited about one two three lar- solvent. Where are you throw or five, right? So brother. Was interesting too is watching. Not even necessarily ring of honor because the ring of honor. There's it's it's some superstar on superstar matches. There is a certain level of squash match like they had villain. What are they villain internet enterprises? That's a mouthful the just villains Inc. And prizes was tough villains. Ville billons Ville. Philipsburg? I mean, Martin Brody. It's great. Oh, yeah. PC oh comes down. Just like what the fucking doing that face. He makes where he he just goes wide eyed, and he acts like he has dentures in or something maybe he does need to turn on him run him out of the promotions. I mean, I'm just like stop mugging, please. Well, that's I mean, that's, you know, that's his hair flip. That's that's one of his right that he doesn't fuck up. Right. He eats electric city and dines on shops goes wide eyed fun. So they kind of had a squash match with. I don't I don't know who they were wrestling. Yeah. No, the three men. But on annex, t here's the thing that it dawned on me, why annex t works for me. And and and it is very similar for new Japan. Because the there is a certain if you wanna look at it as a suave match. There's a squash match because one of the things I like about watching annex tease. I'm gonna see people. I don't know. Yeah. Right. And on a certain level. You could be like all right? You know, gulag versus you know, Bander snatch was Bearden Gary Bergen Coggin gulag versus beer garden was I'm like, okay. Well, this is a squash match. And then gulag says I want a real challenge. You have you have chosen wisely, bro? Bro. Kicking off the sin. I loved the handshake at the end of their match beautiful. Fucking riddle dune. Oh my God. Oh, I can't always think he's off the cheap. Man. I can't wait for big MandA fuck that. They saw the they saw all league coming. They said, you know, what we're going to discount. Your pot tack. You could smoke all the Patty. Absolutely. But you know, what it is where it's it's not a squash match on annex t or new Japan to I'll get an Japan in a second. But it's not with an exte- because the person who you you have a pretty good idea. Who's going to win the match. Yeah. Okay. But it's not because the other person is a loser. Like on the main roster. There are people that you're like, oh, this guy's a loser. And then they get into the word fifty fifty booking. And you're like, oh, no one's a winner. Nobody's a winner. You know, if everybody's over. Nobody gets over within exte-. It's not this isn't Duane Gill. Berg Gilbert out the wrestling. I'm like this kid's not a loser. He's just new. He's on his way up. Yeah. So I can accept the fact that this kid is going to lose the match. But not because I'm like, well, he's a fucking loser. I don't care about him. Like, he's on the ascent, you know, with new Japan. They had the same thing with the young lions like they don't have a gimmick. They just had the black trunks. I'm like, they're not losers. They're young. They're on the ascent. Right. New japan. Also has the interesting aspect of the older veteran who's on their way down Sherm. Not a loser. Yuji nagata. What is not a loser? But also not expecting him to win all of his matches. He might. That's right. You know, he might get stuck in a program with itchy and fucking break. My heart that I don't get to see it live. Oh, oh, maybe it'll be guard Darden that'd be great. They need that match at the garden. That would be great. They've got some depth. If they've got some depths that. Talk. We and I can't talk. But that's the weird thing of like. Man. Oh, man. Oh, man. Here's thing. Kenny what Kenny omega his deal with a w he's allowed to work for new Japan. If he wants to when he wants to shut up him and Jericho have that in their deal. So. He's got to be at the garden. Dude. The bucks should be at the garden. Fucking Cody all of them. It is funny watching mardi skirl walkout on ring of honor's that even more so than fucking Steen. I'm like, man. This guy's got to be like why the fuck did. I sign this deal. Stay. The course Marty course, Martin just counting. He's like win is. He's like PC. Oh, broady guys. Great. I gotta get the book out. I love that my mardi skirl as a southern accent. He's like the villain. I gotta get out of your guys. Let me just let me just make a slash through this date on my calendar. Real quick here. He so got him. Good Jesus Christ. Crest. Let me just see if there's anything else. I want to talk about I mean. And exceeds is fucking great. Though is Johnny Gargano so tan he got into Drake's Tanner. He looks like a Klingon like it looks like you got into Drake's Tanner looks real fucking fake. Vince is VERA restless my favorite wrestler is Austin Aries, go out of your way to watch that TBT from last week on ring of honor. Okay. Reminded me of of all the good shit that that Aries had done perhaps. He'll pop up somewhere again cooking, some vegan food or something. But yeah, he just like areas was fucking legit, man. And and yeah, I was also reminded of the lifts that he always had like you team Simmons boots on you know. Hey, double. Yeah. Man. Who's your favorite ler? Well. My favorite wrestler was was going to be. Well, I guess I can be whatever I want right, right. Well, it's the sky pirates. Okay. It's e oh, and and kyri they just fucking fantastic. You know, and they had a great. Six woman, tag them and Bianco Blair air. Blair versus the three horsewoman, you know. Yeah. So what is rod his wife is that now her gimmick. Or did she break her nose? They've never addressed. So I assume it's an injury that they're pretending. They're okay. But it it's weird. It's very weird the face mass. Yeah. If you haven't watched as what we're talking about. But I loved the. I love the not-so-subtle subtleties. Well, what's what's her name? I don't mean to call her Rodney's wife, and this is marina. Yeah. Sure. Schiff here arena. Fear fear. Pardon me, rotties her husband. That's right. That's right. He belongs to her. That's right. And there's some Troy there you go. There Troy's parents a threat. So Troy's mom is up there with. I just love them. And and it's again, it's I never watched stardom. You know, still haven't I've I've I've blend some shit here and there, but that's that's gonna be my next rabbit hole. But I'm going to go down. Yeah. But that being said, I am torn because Pedro Morales passed away. So you gotta get in. There. Gotta get in there. I'm looking forward to my Pedro Morales collection that will soon be hopefully, we'll be on the WWE network soon. I gotta thank you. Imagine getting where you fit in. I've been why I did watch when you came over. I was in the middle of watching from nineteen Seventy-three Madison Square Garden Pedro Morales versus George the animal Steele. And anytime, I see he'll George steel and always makes me think of some random shoot interview King Kong Bundy where he was complaining about the business of as he's want to do. But where he's like making George steel into a baby face. Does that make any sense to you? I'm like, yeah. Actually, it does it does. He was lovable. Did a great job did an amazing job with it probably better than being fucking. He'll yeah. But the only other thing I was I was you know, on the network, I'm looking at my collection where is my black history month collection. The skipped it this year. That that that's one of my favorite things that they would do on the network every year always getting some fucking real solid Bobo Brazil footage.

To Meena or like visiting, you know, the m okay right museum, or I have it on mute because I'm looking out on like, wait a second this for mass year. Also, there's plenty of other wrestlers could feature because they used to do the like, you know, big cat Ernie Ladd like they would do. They would do things about the wrestlers.

E147 Ryan & Lindsay - Having A Baby

"I'm Ryan idol host of fifteen minutes to freedom your daily action guide to getting shit done. If you do me a favor and leave me review a five star review or comment wherever you're consuming this content, it'd be immensely appreciated. The more reviews I get the higher my ranking ultimately becomes with that high ranking comes more listenership and that's what this is all about getting the message out to more people. Today's episode is my favorite day of the week, right? The day of the week. We're have my wife in the studio, the beautiful now. Lindsey Neidl sits across from me and we cover some important stuff, important stuff where I don't know what we're doing today. You'd never do. No, really. I mean, unless I'll let you pick the episodes and then they get all jacked up. We figure out anyways. So today's episode talking about today is having a baby. Oh, yeah. That's right. That's right. So. My as many of you know that listen to the show consistent. I love what I call challenge based lifestyle. And the challenge as lifestyle isn't some that I came up with. It's something that is part of the wake of where your group, it's part of the the social structure that gear Jay white has come up with fury's about that. Go to a wake-up warrior dot com or kings kit DACA de kings dot com to get more information about them. There is warrior women as well, so you can go to, I think wake-up or your women are warrior. Women go to Google and type it in. I don't know what it is. I'm not a woman. I haven't looked, but in that. This challenge base lifestyles away that we look quarter-by-quarter at the year and come up with challenge outcomes for body being bouncing business, the core of our life. And so my challenge outcome for my body is to have you know, my first and probably only boxing fight, professional, whatever you wanna call it like a sanction fighting weather, temperature professionals, someone material. But that's my challenge. Come in that associated with that has to be two hundred sixty pounds with a defined six pack which a heavier than to sixty and have that already. So like I've already knocked that part off. The next part is being and that's the the being side of things from you is meditation. So I'm gonna, meditate for an hour using something called the muse. It's actually choose muse dot com. And have it be during that our time here that I say, one hundred percent in the calm zone, which for those of you that haven't meditated or have used a device like that's a pretty monumental overcome. Like that's a hard thing to do for sure, but that that just expands the capacity. So all of this, this challenge base lifestyles to come up with some. That's going to the current version. Of you couldn't achieve that. You'd have to become a better version of yourself in order to knock these check marks off. That we get to the being quite earned the yeah, balanced quadrant, which is about family in life, and my balance quadrants was too, or is too confused convince or negotiate Lindsey into being able to potentially consider gone on the path of having a kid. It's like to get to the first step. It's not to necessarily make her become pregnant or have you want to say that the right way? It just know that now it's like all bets are off where some of the protective measures that couples might use. Why go to the wayside like no birth control, we should probably put a disclaimer on this so that my family doesn't freak the hell out when they see the title of having a baby. I am not currently pregnant and we are not currently trying to have a baby. You don't know what we're gonna title. I know you well enough to, they'll have phone calls because Italians have no patience and although see is the title and then forty five people call me how you pregnant. No, I'm not pregnant. So that. So that you just tipped off with the next episode is going to be about. So if you listen to this next episode is I'm married interim Italian. That's that's the next one coming. And so that's a challenge base outcome, the desired outcome from you this quarter for my family, and then I in business, it's hit certain thresholds for you know, unleash the kings, which you know is my my own training group, my own version of really massaging the body being bounced business quadrant for a handful of individuals going down the rabbit hole and marketing and body. Really some of the two quadrants that I'm really really strong and and so the clearing out all this nonsense, we're going to bring this all back to the race lifestyle based around having a baby with Lindsay. And as she sitting there with as I would call in our family, we call it the grumble pajamas face the because I had no idea what we're talking about as we sit down on this table and you're like having a baby. Yeah, but nobody's like any. Yes, I have even when I come and sit on the studio, like I don't know what the hell Montauk about. I just spit stuff out. There's never notes. It's it always scripted. Yeah, but I like how you refer to having a baby as part of a challenge. It's definitely a challenge, but it's. It's not like a challenge that you hit and that goal just goes away like it's there for life. It's not just like, oh, I hit the goal today. Is to get you to even consider it like to come off earth control to just make sure like that's that we're both healthy that has an available possibility. Vet isn't challenge right now, and that's that's what this episode about like. So I, as I said, the challenge base outcomes for myself that you know this quarter of the year, I said our Lindsey and I covered with her. Like part of this is not just doing it than saying quiet about it, like I to talk to the people that are involved in it when came to the business stuff. I talked to the guys inside the office, talk to them. I when I came up with the boxing side of things, I talked to my trainer like none of this is by chance. I can't pull off any this by myself. Obvious again, have a baby myself by yourself. I could practice, but that's not very much fun. And so in this like shirt with and there's just. And there's just she's coughing the studio. If Jesus what is this? Are you? This is what we do know a tickle in my throat. You ever took a new throat. Knock this off. My eyes are watering it up. Uh-huh. So as as we go down this path and I'm covering with her, what I really want to do, there's an admitted look of trepidation and this isn't new to her, and I like the competition of having a baby. This is something that we covered in some capacity prior to getting engaged prior to getting married like this is not like throwing the hail Mary in the fourth quarter with two minutes left a baby. No, no, no. And then all of a sudden, as you're doing your quarterly challenges, look at me and say, oh, hey, guess what? I'd like you to go off the pill by the end of the year and you know, let's have a baby. This was not out of left field. We've been talking about this on and off for a long time for sure. And in these conversations, it always loosely started out the same way like it just it just did and and mid, there's a shift that I went through this week, we're, we're, we're going to get to so understand that the story takes a couple of twists and turns, but I'm a negotiator and a closer by the nature of who I am. Yes. So it could be that Lindsay could say anything like, we'll take the kids off the team. For a second. Let's talk about a vacation, don't care. We'll make up a magic vacation destination. Say, we wanna go Atlanta's and Wendy's mind works in such a way of like, you know, do we have the money to have the time? What about the dogs? What about the kids like she goes through this whole laundry list of what if we've already established in pass podcast that I'm the planner in our family and you just kind of wing it and see where it the shit's gonna stick. With that being said. What is this? No, what ends up happening is I go ahead and we'll start instantly turning into all the salesmanship things I have to do to create this magic environment for her to stop thinking about the what, if and get mentally committed to the beauty of what would be Atlanta's. Yeah. And I know you do that to me and I let you do it. I mean, you've been doing it for years. I love that. You say you let me do it, but I know I know how your mind works and I've seen you try to close people for still close people. You now how I tried to click close piece of people. Sorry, one, but he goes fragile, very insecure, but you know your faces real upset with you. Go ahead. You're not. But you, you know, high if I want something just like it did I want it. But if I am on the fence about something or I don't want something you're not going to close me on, like I am not that person. Uh-huh. So really that flippant like I hear you is how I've viewed the entire child thing. 'cause like Lindsey has had this experience before. I mean, obviously I'm very blessed where we together have what I would call a daughter. It's Lindsay's daughter from a previous marriage. I definitely at her as Oshii is mine when she's with us. She has a great father who's actively involved in her life who spends wonderful quality time with her. So she gets really the best of both worlds. But in that I had previously looked at it like I got to miss out on the tough part by met Jonah when she was four. So I didn't absolutely was knighted changing diapers. I didn't have any of those chaining. All that crazy stuff. Yeah, Jewish pretty self sufficient from the time I came into your life and to her life. Yes, she's phenomenal. Amazing. And so I had looked at it for a long time that I didn't get to do any of the tough stuff that have only got the funds. I'd I'm sure there's a lot of truth to that. Like if you're listening and you have kids, you understand what this is a capacity that I can't currently fathom like I've never been involved with in a relationship with anybody with a toddler. Baby ages RAF toddler, ages rough. When they get to the four to five ish window where they cognitively can understand a whole bunch. They can reiterate to you what you've said and parrot things back, but then also have their own opinions, and then they can also understand what's going on in verbalize what they want and what they need. It makes life so much easier than the toddler who knows what they want, but can't tell you. To me. And in that get into experience, that part, it has never really been in any of our conversations up until somewhat recently. It's always been one of those things of. Know probably somewhere deep in my soul. I have the requirement necessity yearning to have my own child in the middle. Hopefully my own son, I'm not. I don't see there's any reason have any bias towards that. Abu blessing fortunate to have a daughter. I think it's every guy's dream is to have a son to for me to coach football and do guys with like that. Sounds fun to me. Yeah, for sure. But in that I'm only able to hear during any of our conversations my own viewpoint, which is strange for me to say aloud, because I'm typically a really open person and you never have change your version of the story. Like I say, story as this comes up the way that I would view it is Lindsay having gone through a pregnancy before and having obviously the the requirement of keeping another human alive inside of her and then giving birth to that child. Like there's a different weight and responsibility like I get to experience the fun part on the front side, right? I don't have to give birth, and then I get to kind of like, hang like, the child needs me for some sort of protection, but the, you know, I think babies want their moms so I get I get even in the less than fund baby and toddler stages. I still get in my mind only the fun stuff. Yeah. And that's, I mean, that's your. We're milk trucks and were the the go-to all the time for. Babies, newborns, really rely on their mothers more so than their fathers. It's not a knock against dad's. That's just kind of how each or is. Yeah, of course. And so you know, I brought this up consistent in before it was one of those things like, I don't really know if I care like I'm at this weird selfish place where Jonah is now eight come December. She'll be nine. And so nine years from now when she's eighteen our requirements to stay in Columbus, no longer exist, right. She's going off to college and she's in adult and yeah, and then she'll be actively in, you know, it's not like we. Well, we're not just checking out of parenthood when she's eighteen, but she's going to have now for her own forming of life and the next step of her her life. And so she doesn't. She's not going to need her parents every day, like an eight year old does of course. And by the nature of that calling or what it is, we will no longer be contractually obligated saying certain distance from your ex-husband. Right? That's part of this equation for our family. And so the selfish side of me has always said, like, all right, I don't really know if I want to go on this path because nine years from now, our ten years now or whatever the time periods of been, we're in our early forties and we had to get in college. I'll be forty three, having you know successes that we've experienced and you know, upward mobility, we can literally go and where we want to travel and where we want see the world. And as long as we're home kind of somewhere in the summer, that Johnny could come home to call her house and know whatever that looks like we're free. And that was always one side of the coin and the side of the coin. That selfishly feels very exciting. Yeah. And I agree with you then the other side of that coin from me has always been, but I don't know what it's like to have my own kid. It's weird. It's not so much with me. One of the carry on my family name and saw that everything wrong, my family name, but that's never really played into it. Like I remember sitting on my father and talking to him. He's like, you know, if you don't have a boy, our names. Shops, like an idol named goes away. There is no yet and thinking about that because of a sister and she, she has a daughter, but again, different last names until the it stops that way. And there's. Boys on my. On -chools on girls in that. Yeah, right. Yeah. Just different part of the family tree, you know, not not my father, right? And so I would love to say that play a role into it, but it hasn't yet again, nothing wrong with my name, nothing anything to do with that. It just that wasn't part of the checks and balances for me. The checks and balances are I now know that I'm a really good father. Great dad. Yeah. And I know that I have there are some things occasionally that Lindsey and I do not see eye to eye on with parenting, which I think is completely normal for any parents. I agree birth child or not brute child like boneless, daughter, whatever any parenting. 'cause you weren't raised the same way by the same people, and so you're going to have different viewpoints on how you raise your children for sure. In our situation, there's a third viewpoint, which is your ex husband and he has way more weight and way more than I do as he shouldn't. I mean, it's his daughter, Sarah, but we don't really. I mean, to be honest, we don't really take into account any of the things that he. He does or says within his household because we have our own set of rules within our household. No, we have basic standards for Jonah that she lives by every household. You know, both mine and my ex husbands, and that's normal normal life stuff. But as far as bad times than chores and structure, we definitely have more of that in our house. Some of that I think is again natural based off of, like you said, upbringing and things are important, and just the structure and the way that we live our life. I the way that other people live. I mean, we live pretty regimented life, but that's because that's what we like by. That's right. Are adulthood lends itself to that sort of mindset methodology? The things that we don't agree on our more things of. Jonah happens to be a very intelligent young lady. And I say that not based off of a, I think every parent says, our kids are intelligent, but John is in the third grade and his tested out of like spelling and reading and just about tyrod of math, very smart. And she comes from again, great, great parents who've done great things. You Netflix as well as with her like, she's she's got good influences that allow her to be intelligent and encourage her to be intelligent. But in that I would envision and would like to see like almost a tutor or someone that helps accelerate Jonah's learning. More net can travel with us as like, I'm emission this incredible world where we studied the pyramids and like Jonah's learning about the pyramids for two or three weeks here in Columbus right now. And then we go to Egypt and we spent a week seeing the pyramids unless she gets to learn real time about all these different things either geographically or mathematically, or you know, whatever could be like, I think that is such an impactful way to teach children versus this. Everybody has willing to give or take the same speed and there's these bullshit. You know, state ran school state, ran tests and like you're kind of watering down things. So the mid level and we're very fortunate being a great school system. One of the top, you know, two or three schools, no Hieaux as far as the public school system goes, but they still have to test and optimize towards the middle. Like you're not. You're not always raising the bar and so call the challenge race, lifestyle again that I live. But I think there's just this way to maximize what your child's output really can be and sure then the counter side of that is always the what. What about the social growth that she would stunt like? She wouldn't see the social side of things why I truly believe they're still club sports do and she's involved gymnastics, and there's all these other things that she could still go have. The relationships with children. That would propel her into the next couple of life in the, you know, intercommunication skills with other individuals. That's just one of the things we just don't necessarily see eye to eye on because you are more traditional in the mindset of like not wanna, take her out of school and not, you know, and obviously I assume an Gordon again, we've never had the conversation with him, but I wouldn't assume that her father would be supercooled like you guys go have a good time in Egypt for ten days like no. I mean, if it weren't coming from you, maybe he would even consider hearing it, but anything that comes from you is an instant, no. Doesn't matter what it is. I would like to give you a million dollars. No less than two. No. You know, and that's a you probably topic for another another podcast another day, but there's just, you know, those are the things that I think about us having a child. If we had a child. Let's say the next year, you know, after just Asian period and all that stuff, where Jonah then at that point is nine, almost ten cent mean she graduates high school in eight years. So the child that we have when she graduates ended up being the aids Jonah is right now which is third grade, which to me is the right time start traveling so like we could still do that just not tenure evolution in the future. Right? Which it would be things that you and I decide and discover together that I have ten years. So slowly wear you down and close you because you're not gonna instantaneously change, but like I get ten years, it's like, what is it that it's not waterboarding, but we're, you drop water droplets on someone's head consistently. Whatever's gold. The same dot in the middle, your Ford at all the time that it hit the water hit you eventually it gets a whole like that will be what I'll have to do to Lindsey over the next ten years to make that happen. But I'm convinced it's a possibility. And so I've always went back and forth between these two things. You know, be selfish side of things and the side of things of like, I'm a good father, and I want to know what it's like to raise our own or my own child. Again, it's I, I only say that because I don't know any parents if your parent or loved here in from you, I don't any parents say like they'll just a worse decision I ever made. Sorry I shouldn't have had, you know, like everybody says that, say I regret not having kids. Yeah, for sure. And you have people, of course like fucking hate it when they're young. I don't want this stuff like they're expensive. Like I get the the high level what it is to have a kid at the best level that I can cause you didn't experience all the the hard stuff. So to speak, all steps of parenting have their major challenges so far as I'm learning. Right. I, I've not had a teenager yet, so that's coming for us. But the, the newborn and the toddler and like the net transitional school age is tough stuff. Yeah, super tough stuff. One Jonah loves loves the living daylights out of me like the best that she can, but the love that she has for you and your ex husband is different by the nature of you know you genetically encoded with one another. And so there's part of me that doesn't wanna miss out on what that feels like. And so the entire time that I have ever brought any of these items, those of always been my stances, like it's always in a conversation with a b with Lindsay or another individual, like those are the two things I bring up and I've always waffled back and forth haven't ever had that fifty down the middle with you. Yeah, I wanna have one today. No, I'm we're good. Yeah, absolutely. But that would ask Lindsey, these questions I now can see this, but I couldn't up until this past week where her instant response was more on a negative twinge and not negative on the fact of like aggressively unhappy. But more of like my body's going to change, I can't ride horses anymore. It's expensive. It's uncomfortable. There's this a lot more. Like you said earlier, you get to have the fun part and then the other fun part when the baby actually gets here, but that whole ten months in between is majorly difficult on me in my body. Absolutely. And that's those initial parts have always been the first things come out of your mouth. Eventually the second things that come on your mouth really more like the third and fourth things just being honest with a now, are the upside like it'd be great advocate with you like to see what our you know, our our DNA makes together hard. No, it's like yes, I would love to have a baby with you. Yes, it would be great. Like obviously they'd be super cute. Yeah, but I mean, we're, I would sound fifty fifty now that I can look at it more objectively. You probably been sixty forty or even seventy thirty more towards annot. I just didn't hear that. And so what is happening is like part of this. And again, this is not to throw dispersions on anybody. But Lindsay having had a child with another person. She can only be. Our relationship can only be relative towards what she's already experienced. Meaning the I envisioned a thing where I go to every, I'll call the MAs appointment. I'm making up suffering suffering. This up is like I go to the but like the burden classes and I go to the doctor's appointments and I, I'm, I'm excited just like I'm excited. Not like I'm excited to be a part of Jonah's life. And I do not as much as I could. I'm sure there's still more I could do, but I do a lot of stuff like super involved. I love every part of it so much that you leave this week and I get to be with Jonah from Wednesday until Friday, like by myself. Yeah. So it's super fantastic for me. But in that your experience was different than that your first go round? I didn't have a good experience at all, and I will. I mean, and again, I not dispersions anyways, just facts of how it was for me. Yeah, you again, I think this is this is important. This is stuff to get out because I know that we're not the only ones going through stuff like this. Yeah. And so now that I put the disclaimer that is not attacking it, but in all this stuff like your your ex husband was is, was a great producer is a great guy like there's things that are our benefits, but in that as so common with, you know, men that I coach or people that I hope we get literally focused on. The one measure that we feel is important, which is success of art action, a production and business, and everything else kinda falls in a different to quench your order after business. Right. And so by the nature of that, you know, as your pregnant as your going through that period, I can only assume that added pressure of like, okay, we have another mouth to feed. Have another. You know that our lives are changing together that increased anx for production. Has that become more of the focus even than it was prior and there isn't as much bonding over this experience. Is that a fair way to say it? Yeah, but I, I even think that's a nice way to say it. I mean, I trying to attack anybody like this. This is your story to just send the frame for you. So yeah, I, I mean, my ex husband is probably the worst type of person to be matched with my type of person as far as communication goes. That's not to say like he's bad or I am bad. It's just our styles of communication in life, and our love languages didn't mesh at all, and I was twenty two when I met him. So I didn't understand in the stuff. And. And how old were you? Got pregnant, not when you had John holder, you Honey? Six. And we're living in Columbus or down in Florida? Yeah, we're living in Columbus. But you were in the process of moving to Florida? Yeah. So I was probably somewhere between three. And five months pregnant when we actually moved down to Florida, we found out before actually, no. We've found out that I was pregnant after we had signed the contract to go to Florida. Okay. 'cause you and him left a veterinary practice here in Columbus to go down and start a new part of veterinary practice in Palm Beach, Florida, cracked. And so you then are leaving your life. I mean, you born and raised in Columbus, Ohio? Yeah, my family's here my parents. I mean, if you know anything about Italian families, like everybody's in everybody's business all the time. We're very close knit. Everything's about family, I and he didn't have any family, but that being said the note if here here yes, so he didn't have any family here in Columbus, but that being said, when the contract was up at our veterans hospital here in Columbus, we both talked about it and said, you know, this is the perfect time to. We didn't know where you're pregnant, that went this perfect time to move like we can always come back. We can do something we can grow a business and sell it off. Like there's opportunity here and we just got. Married know probably eighteen months before that, and it's like, okay, let's let's do change. We're not. So we did in I found out I was pregnant now we had planned on having Jonah. It was a conscious decision to go off the pill and try to get pregnant. It was more something that I brought up. And I think that been rope like this pregnancy of horse happened from immaculate conception. I'm obviously like one time just one time he looks at you really hard for a long time and it just, it just happened the seed transferred in like, that's how this works. It's wanna make sure I'm clear on my side and things how this actually. How this actually, no. But it started off as a the experience of paying on the stick finding out. I was pregnant. We had a very modest house when we first got married, it was a little three bedroom, one bathroom house. You know, cute. But small, just a new normal starter home. So we had one bathroom and he was in the shower, getting ready for work. And of course, our bathroom was like the standard hall bathroom just the sink toilet, the shower. So there was no like privacy. So I'm peeing on the stick is he's in the shower and I'm waiting there and he's still in the shower, and I see the little positive come up and I'm like, super excited. Oh my gosh, it happen because it happened fast. It was the first month that I've been off the pills. I was not expecting to be pregnant. I opened the shower curtain and I'm like, we're pregnant. Oh my God, look at the test, and he deadpanned me and goes, okay, I gotta get ready for work and closed the shower door. And so I need to make sure that you the listener understands the way that I view your ex husband. He is incredibly intelligent and. Emotions and the way that he shows emotions, like what I found in most individuals, if you're if you're incredibly intelligent, if you're true, like the pinnacle of your career in your individual field, the likelihood that you have other strong abilities like emotional Bility's or you know, I thought abilities that you kind of go all in on something. And so again, this is not to attack him, but like he's incredibly intelligent. And then by the nature of that is just not emotion, incapacity act like a and I, I will say that since Jonah has obviously been born in, he's raised her with me. He does a very good job of showing her love and emotion, which I think is the only thing besides animals that he is able to show love and affection to on a on a level that someone else would be able to feel it. But yes, you're you're right. He's extremely intelligent to the point where I think that he doesn't compute on a normal emotional level. It just parts. On important to develop developed in so many other ways, which is not relevant. Right? So that was my first day, one of experience pregnancy and I'm like, oh my God, like I got punched in the gut. I didn't know what to say. And then I, you know, he comes out of the shower and I'm of course crying like you didn't care and you just shut the the shower door in my face and what the hell I got. I can't help it wounds. He again, I want to make sure that you understand has listener is full bred. They know that Tien now I know. But like it's like this wife to put myself not only in your husband like me being your husband right now shoes, but also by being your husband understand how you're really wired where like I'm thinking, okay, there's two sides of the story. There's a side of like, you're super excited to slide open the curtain. You tell him and he's kind of in the back of his mind like, oh, shit, I don't really care includes the curtain. Like that's one version. Then there's the other version of like, okay, I'm in the shower. And for some reason I'm ten minutes later than I wanna be in your telling me something. I don't know how to compute. So I closed the curtain because I have to truly ready for work because now it's like if I don't actually show up at work on time, it's already clicking my brain that I can't afford to pay for this kid that's coming. Oh shit. And so you just like you just close a curtain and go. And so he comes out and your emotional nece. This is not even because hormones this is because you're Tien because of who you are. I can just to see you sitting there like crying, pissed off, confused, hurt, frustrated, like all all across the board. And it doesn't have to necessarily be that this guy was emotionless I'm, I don't know what it's like to have that shock. Now. I know what it's like to see you as an emotional person when sometimes there's just no damn reason to get emotional like your woman. So that's part of this no offense, women that are listening, it's truthful. Women have a higher motion oil like fucking balance, and we do as we deal and I and I'm reactionary, and I have emotional responses pretty much everything in life, and but I will say like as a twenty six year old woman way better now as a thirty six year old woman because at twenty six, I had no tools to control my shit. None all this is almost unfair for him. If you're that much better now, like you're putting yourself on the back for who you are today. Messed up like her for the vein on her forehead popping out. Like she wants to tell me to go, fuck myself is okay. It's probably because I need my talks touched up. It could be. Go ahead. Go ahead. So he gets out of the shower, so yes, and you know, it's just like that's the bad start to the happens. He gets out of the shower and comes to you in like, it just goes. Sorry, you know? Yeah, that that's exciting. But honestly, he goes, well, what did you think it was going to happen? Lindsey, we, you know, we said, we're going to try to have a baby and you went off the pill. That's what he said on. I went for over. It is very him. I said, okay, and then I had to then get ready for work. And so that's just what happened. But also I'd have to assume like one positive pianist test does not necessarily guarantee the factor actually pray right now. Then I had to call my doctor that day and I had to go in for blood tests and the whole nine yards. Yeah, so and he did come to that. And for the most part, he tried to come to appointments with me, but it was, I had to track him down and call the hospital and make sure that he remembered and you know whatever. And so he made it to most of them, but not all of them. I know the important ones he showed up for most of the part. I did all of it on my own. Then it became like, okay, we have to get a baby's room ready because we moved to Florida. I was. Eight or nine weeks pregnant. I had just gotten the confirmation from the doctor via blood test, but hadn't had an ultrasound yet to confirm that there was a heartbeat and we're flying down to Florida to buy a house. We had. We were down there for a week and we had to find a house in a week. And so we bought this house in, we have to get a baby's room ready and all this stuff, and he's going well, you know, I don't really know if we need a crib in a in a paint, the room in a dresser and all. What time during this? Like how far along the pregnancy are you as you're having? Are you having this while you're shopping at eight or nine weeks now? I mean, we we moved down there removed, moved in the house. I had my first alter sound confirmed that Jonah was healthy, happy growing pregnancy. He moved down a couple of months before I did and lived in like an extended stay because he owns, yeah. You know he went, it was probably two months and I went back and forth twice to get the house ready because our house, the people that we bought it from needed, I don't know sixty days or something. So he had to start work and I had to start how stuff. And then I had to start work shortly after I moved down there too, because we were a team. Okay. So you're so he's, he went point four months? Yeah, almost. I was almost four months pregnant by the time I got down to Florida. Okay. Make for ten months total, but they say nine months. But so it was July when I moved down to Florida, and John was born in December. So we started to get the house ready and all that stuff. And it was fall time, of course, is not fall in Florida. It was ninety five degrees out, and I was so September. So I was seven months pregnant and okay. Could we used to get ready. I'm playing devil's advocate like, I don't know if we've ever went this deep down and I've had the consciousness of presence of mind to be able to play the devil's advocate like I'm your husband, so I always support everything you say. But now as I'm sitting here, thinking through this for whatever reason in this exact moment way more objectively, I've just bantering back and forth about the fact of like, all right, if you and I and we move and your two months pregnant, you wanna get a room ready because you're the ultra planner. And I'm like. The house is what room was going to be Hearst. I didn't even know. I knew pretty early what we were having because we worked in a veterans hospital and I have an ultrasound machine, so I'll sound in myself and figured out what sex she was. And so I knew pretty early, I was having a girl in, you know, wanted to get things ready. Now, of course, I'm a planner, so I was already planning stuff, but the only thing I did was pick out which room was going to be her room. It's August September, it's August-September, and there's things like the baby registry, and you have to buy criven a dresser and a changing table and diapers and diaper genies and bassinet, and swings in Moby wraps and all kinds. I mean, there's just endless amounts of crap with baby. Now, admittedly, understood two of those words crib croup. I guess addressing, I don't even care about a dresser. So my mom's down because she's going to help me get the room ready and she goes, okay, where's the the crib? And the dresser on, I said, well, he doesn't think we need one. And so he's given me a really hard time about going out and picking one out with me and she was like, you've gotta be kidding me? What. And I had the shelves that I bought for the room and he wouldn't hang the shelves and just just stuff just just it was combative at every point. So I'm crying because I'm like, oh my God, we're not getting a dresser and like this is ridiculous and I'm gonna. I'm gonna put baby clothes on the floor. Just nothing about it was simple and easy. It should've just like in my mind, you're laughing at me. I know. But in my mind is I'm I'm thinking about having a kid. I'm thinking of all these things that I'm going to do with my then husband and go and pick out baby stuff and strollers and car seats. And you know, cute, and it's fun and excited together and haven't put together the crib and the dresser, and it'll be so cute in like, none of this stuff was happening. It was all forced in very awkward and just combative and it was miserable. So I'm laughing because I know envision you with a pretty decent sized baby bump. I imagine you being in the hot Florida sun. I imagine you frustrated in Italian and the motion from having a. Baby inside of you just being frustrated. Everything's changing. And so the the heightened emotions, coupled with the fact of him not responding the way that you want. But as you're telling the story lamps in their thinking, all right, how would I act? And I'm like, I like to shop and I'm could be super excited advocate. Oh, you're gonna. You're gonna get. If we decide to do this, we're gonna go into like the bye bye. Baby store or whatever it is with that gun for registry or to register your, go buy stuff. You're going to get caught up in every marketing gimmick look, look, this need this for sure. We need this. I understand this boat I'm saying is like in this moment you sent. All right. Let's go shopping. That doesn't sound fun to me either. Like I don't wanna go buy a car seat like the requirement. Of course you have to have a crab and a mattress in like it. I'm just saying when you're saying this out loud to me in this moment, like taking all the BS aside, I'm not like, yes, I can't wait to do this shopping shit for stuff that we're going to have for like a year and the none of us going to work anymore. It's all expensive. And. Women, of course, get super into it because you want the cute ones and the color matching, and you know the fancy things to help out doesn't help. Combative doesn't want to abort. I'm cutting off because like I'm not even good on this path right now. Yeah, he doesn't. It's fine muscle with you. Go ahead. I mean, that's just what it is fast forward to the end of the pregnancy and things are about the same. I worked up until the last four weeks smucker wanted to take four weeks off because at the nine month, Mark by hipster started to move and I don't. I don't think I've ever shared this. I have really horrible hips, and I've had multiple injuries to them from riding horses. And I've also had surgeries so she'll horses are not only expensive to own operate and keep. They also tear down your body so horses are really like triple benefit. Like if you can, if you have money that you want to literally throw away like you have two options, really three, you can put on trash candle and on fire. You can go to the bathroom number to wipe yourself and then throw it down the toilet, or you can get a horse, like those are the three wife super happy, three options. Yes, as we're now my soul Cup everyone. Now on the precipice of meeting yet another hip surgery for the one, she hasn't had a surgery on yet because she complains about how bad it hurts from riding the horse that she rides all the time. Yeah, but I always knew that I was going to have to have my other. One fixed just fixed the worst of the two I, but anyway, as my hip start to move, I like, you know, the tiny little. We had a big walk in shower, and there was like this tiny little half inch step where like the tile moved up. So the water didn't get out. I could not physically pick up my foot to put it in there, like my hips were so out of whack in out of line. And Jonah was sitting on the my Saddik Nursia was terrible. So I've been working some some, you know, spray and spray that do Dan to slip yourself into Lander back and slide across the threshold really bad. So I stopped working for weeks before she was born. And then I went into labor for almost four solid days and they sent me home three times and longtime. Yep, three time, you know, I I was not progressing like they wanted me to progress. I just kept having contractions every lakes, three to seven minutes that were really intense. Like I can't just take my hands when then have to like push, not if you want to get cut. Dow, like just take my hand on if you're breast bone and just pushed down, that's not going to help now that will not. Okay. My mind that just seemed like a normal thing to do just like push them down. So I did like I did the walking and the I had some really fantastic neighbors in Wellington and they were from Pittsburgh. So they were mid west people, and they were all younger than my parents, but old enough to be my parents and they adopted me. So I would go on walks with Kim and do all kinds of stuff in it was like, had it not been for those people? I probably would have not survived that whole deal because my ex husband at that point was not ever. Homey was always at the hospital. So a couple of phone calls to him saying, you have to come to the hospital for him to say, no, you know, I'm sure like let me know if they met you. To then finally being induced, and John is born told off. Kind of the, you'll even on a crucial part of that story. Which which part. Epidurals? Oh, yeah. Yep. So I had been in labor for almost four days and by the time that I went in on a Sunday, I call my doctor Saturday night and said, look like, you have to do something. These people keep sending me home. I can't take this anymore. I'm lose my mind. They checked me Sunday morning. I was finally progressing and they said, okay, we'll induce you. So then here comes. My body is not had any sleeper rest for now the fourth day, and they give me Potosi in and the contractions get a thousand times worse. And I didn't want to have a natural birth by any means like there's drugs for reason. I did a lot of research I already had so much pain and then contraction pain in them, Potosi pain. I was over it until I got about, oh, I don't know six or seven almost eight centimeters and said, please call the geologist. I would really like an epic d'oro like I can't physically take anymore, and my body is beyond exhausted and I'm afraid that I'm not going to be able to push her out. I just can't focus. And so I got. Liberal and then the the birth was pretty quick and easy after that. I felt fabulous. And you know she was healthy and happy and continued on with normal after care stuff. I stayed in the hospital for about a day and a half and then went home. And then it kind of started again where he was, you know, happy in supportive for as much as he can be. And then I started to try to breastfeed her and that didn't really go as planned either. So I didn't produce enough milk. I had a very hard time. I got mastitis. I went to lactation consultants and did this for weeks and she got what she needed to for the most purpose. She was still hungry. So then it starts with my other bad experience now is twofold. So my ex-husband and said, you know, you've really didn't. It really wasn't that hard to have a baby. I mean, you had the federal so it couldn't be that bad because I had a natural birth until that point, but I had a vaginal delivery. And so that recovery is really rough for those women that have had vaginal deliveries. It's it's really a a long healing process for that mean you, that's an eight pound baby. So it was, I'm sorry, but I don't think you really did that great of a job you had an patrol so it couldn't be that bad. I mean, you know what? What's the big deal. Everyb- everybody has babies and gets up roles. You didn't do anything that special like, oh, okay. Thank you for bringing this child into to the world and working so hard and having four days of labor in being exhausted or anything that a normal person would say, have prior conversation about wanting to go natural the entire way. No. I said from the beginning, like I will have an patrol. I will go as long as I can, but I will have an girl because I, I just that's my choice. I know my pain tolerance, and that's this far is I'm gonna get. That's what I'm doing. And I would do it again. I would not have a natural childbirth in. I know that there are a lot of reasons to do it, not to do it and blah, blah, blah. But my choice in my plan for myself is that I going to get the drugs because it's for me. So as my natural milk production slowed down even more despite lactation consultant since specialists in all the stuff in pumping and blah, blah, blah. I just realized that I was going to have to supplement with formula and she was not going to survive on just my breast milk alone. It wasn't going to work, and I felt really horrible about that. Any mom that's listening, whether you're able to breastfeed or not, whether you choose to breastfeed or not, it's something that you are told over and over again that it's a, it's a natural thing, and it's a thing for mothers to do, and there's so much judgment in stigma and all that between women and men of whether or not you breastfeed your child, it's just a personal choice. I would've loved to my body just did not produce enough to sustain her. And so then my job is a mother is to make sure that she has life so formula it was, and you know, my ex husband said formulas. Expensive and. You would not have survived as a mother and Jonah wouldn't have survived as a baby had she been born in nineteen? Oh, nine versus two thousand nine because there was not formula then. So you would have failed as a woman and a mother and that shattered me big time because then I felt I already felt like a failure because I couldn't produce enough milk for her. And then to have my husband not support me as I'm solving that, I that as lactation consultant says, you're going to have to do formula. So then having him say, well, you, you know, you would have been stone in a village. Nobody would've wanted you because you can't. You can't produce babies and you can't produce milk to to keep them alive who says that you're in the middle of knowing him. I think you have shared this with me. There was a look on his face and a certain amount of humor that he was trying to get out during that time period. Maybe I wasn't hearing it and I wasn't wasn't registering with me as any kind of joke. And I'm sure that if you ask him, he would say it was a joke and he was just trying to lighten the mood. But even that a aspect like he'd try slide in the mood at that point, but then there's, he re reiterates that on multiple different occasions in multiple different settings. Right. So even if there was that, you know that initial thing of the shock and we're all dealing with our own way to process like, what does this really mean the continuation after knowing that there's some things that make you uncomfortable of that conversation. 'cause you're not exactly a quiet person. I'm sure you didn't like hop in the car and be like. That was so funny. Thanks for sharing that. I don't imagine that's really how that process shit on multiple levels, but also because like on top of me being who I am, then you've got the giant hormone crash that comes after you have baby, that's legitimate hell. I'm sure. I mean, you you, you're body's used to run and on, you know, twice as much and major highest premium octane fuel for awhile, and all of a sudden it's it's gone. And so that crashes is major. And so I, you know, the whole thing just doesn't have a positive light for me. Yes. Yes, there's all these things and I appreciate you sharing some of that vulnerability. Obviously, this is something that you and I have spoken about multiple times but is different win. You being the listener get to experience it and take it all in. And so Lindsey had shared these pieces and parts with me throughout this process like these weren't new things. But in this past week, as we are is I'm rounding down this quarter of the year because my quarters not counter quarters like it's based off when I started warrior. So like I'm looking at starting to push forward with stuff in the competition getting more serious now, like it's no longer one of the things like, you know, let's talk about eventually. It's like, what's the deal here? Kind of what's our plan? And she's just negative. And like it's. It's dawning on me that admittedly that we have something in wake of were called the stack and the stack ends up taking a situation that we're not so happy with, and it can be were mad, angry, sad, upset name, whatever it is and it allows you to look at this situation objectively from four different sides. Figure out which version you want to adopt. You know, isn't me as the opposite version is desired version. You know, how does this Loker the original version and then apply that to life. And I'm realizing that in this as mad as I am at Lynch, like we can't really call it a full-blown fight, but like I'm pissed at her, I don't even remember what day of the week. It was doesn't really matter sometime last week I'll I'll make a Dan, say Wednesday. Yeah, you're really upset because like she's Tommy all this negative stuff. And I'm like, man, I just want to hear something positive. And so on, piss it her, we go to bed and I'm mad when we go to bed, we still talk. But I'm I know inside like, I'm just not happy. Get up in the morning. I stack it and I kind of go all the way around. And I realize the fact that it's not Lindsay who has changed like her story has been static. It's my understanding that has changed. So although I go to bed piss at her, although I'm mad about the conversation, we had over dinner mad about the conversation than the continues on into the evening, a wake up in the Morton. It's like minute. There's just no part of this at her fault the she can only experience life through what she's already jounalists current day for what are the experienced. And so she eventually come to find out she can. She can share that. Meditates and comes up with her own version of what's going on. But she realizes that she shared the story with me and with you. Like she realizes that all these old stories are stories that were not created by our relationship because I'm admittedly pissing her because like you're holding over my head. Like that's like saying right now we shouldn't have gotten married because you had one marriage didn't work out, right? Like on not your ex husband, I might have some same character traits or might be some similarity somewhere along the line. But across the board on my own person. They can only be me and I can only be president our relationship to the best of my ability. So that's not only relegated to our communication. That's every part of a relationship which includes but is not limited to having a baby like until you process that all the way through. And we have additional conversation where at this moment, like after our. Mutual processing. I come to the such stark realization that she's had the same story for three and a half years. I've just never heard it because I wanted to closer. And she comes the realization that. Her pass story shouldn't divine. Her current reality. And I'm like, I just for not like the baby conversation is off the table. Like I just don't even wanna talk about it and not like pack up my ball and go home like spoiled child. Just look when I really think about it for three and a half years, you haven't ever said. I really just want to have a kid that's always come on the backside. It hasn't been the first thing out of your mouth. And so it's this weird thing at this moment of just understanding. Like while we've, we've really went full circle in the past seven days on the way that we view this up topic, and there isn't a current resolution. We still are just kind of hanging out with it. We, we, I really until there's a time at this point where you switch and you come to me and say, I want to have a child with you and that comes out of your mouth. I and you truly mean it and there's multiple conversations with that tone put on it. The child is off the table to me. I, I'm not going to try to overcome pass things at, had nothing to do with me. I'm not gonna try to convert your mindset into something different. I'm not gonna. Have you feel guilty based off my negative emotion associated with it? It has to be that was time passes. If it's something you want to do that you bring up until like I'm ready to get down. I know. And we talked about that too, and I, I had to dissect my own story about what that looked like because I was bringing that experience into our marriage even though it had nothing to do with you. It's the only experience that I have had and it wasn't a good one. So every time that I think about that, it's, it creates majoring diety because I felt alone and not supported, and you know, it just wasn't this happy joyful and it not to say that it's always happy enjoy field. It's very hard to have a newborn in a in a toddler and like they're just major life changes. It's not just like, oh, you know, we'll go with the flow. It every single thing about your life. As you know, it changes. He mmediately we miss the intimacy from the outside, like knowing you now your ex husband's life didn't change? Yeah. During that time, period of just didn't really change like he sold got up, went to work. Did the piece in parts. I mean, I'm sure he contributed in some capacity which would not bash session on him. This is my version of of what happened to me in that part of my life. It has nothing to do on. There were good things that he did, of course, and showing. I'm sure he is a very good dad to Jonah, and he helped his best as he was able to help for who he is. So this episode of I want to have a baby or However I phrase at the start with. Is this unique thing of understanding how difficult it can be if you're not willing to be any part of your life, if you're not willing to adjust and dissect the stories that create your present reality from your past, your little almost doomed to repeat them like if Linda, if we don't have these conversations and if I don't push hard and I don't like really show Lindsey frustration is the first time I've been mad at her for something like like actually pissed off. They can pass conversation just kind of flip it was in passing, but now it's getting serious. And so I've pushed the seriousness and there's this negative feedback, and that causes me to analyze what I've done for the past three and a half or four years. Then it also causes her to analyze what she's really done now for the past McCall nine years because these stories are things that she's carried around with her since Jonah was still inside of her by these are limiting factors that go into everything that happens in current life. These are frustrations that she has with someone that's. Longer actively involved in her life other than the father to your child. Like there's all these things that go into this that. Just a venture to push on Easter rug because they don't feel important, but they are important. 'cause there's things that change when you start to really like lift on under the rug lift up the rug. And he was underneath there. And so as we wrap up the episode, it's like wearing your life right now. Are you letting old stories define who you are today? He's a potential in your business where things that went wrong or you've gotten fired from a job before for lack of performance wherever could be. And based off that you're waiting yet again to get fired. And so in that your performance is starting to slip, and you're trying to do things that aren't relevant towards that particular job because that's all you know, that's all you've experienced or could be something like Linda just shared about a relationship like shoot, if she did that to me, I'd be screwed like I was the person that cheated in wasn't a good guy and had that been the story that like she decided to hold onto about me or that I decided to hold on to myself like I would just have continued down that path that just would have been our reality or my reality. Same thing is for me, can apply in my body as well. Like I had this story that I had to use steroids just I was going to be a bodybuilder liking without Sarah's. I wouldn't be anything that I am. I can't. I let that story to find who I was or who I am today. I wouldn't have a perfect blood panel back wouldn't be, you know, I don't know. Just I'm healthy now, so. Nice. I love to see that. Yeah, I don't know about. I mean, it just I stopped letting those old stories to find me and maybe you're doing the same thing, get many of you. It's a process like you're not just going to flip the switch and have it be okay. I change my mind. It is a process to have the realization that that's a story. You've been telling yourself and then to dissect those walls down so that you can actually see the the story, the reality of what truly that situation was and what the root cause of your anxiety. Fear, you know, whatever the feelings are, where that we're the root causes and for me, like that's been the process of the last week to ten days of just really what that story is for me. Absolutely. And so all these things when you start to really get real in the moment with the things that one on your pass and you're wrong with, how makes you feel them then you decide to dissect in maneuver. Through those versus where you want to go in the future. When do that consistently enough, you'll find out that day over day you're able to get shit done.

Reset with Jenn White

Neighbors, City Say Company Causing Dangerous Pollution

"Hi I'm Jen. White and this is reset coming up in just a bit. A metal recycling company on the city's north side has been causing problems for residents for years is mere lifeless. Finally doing something about it. But first president trump's new budget proposal is on the table and if he gets his way we you could see major cuts to the social safety net. The president wants to boost spending for the Pentagon and Homeland Security while cutting social security and health care programs. In trump's proposed budget includes about one trillion dollars in cuts to Medicaid and the affordable. Care Act over a decade analysts said Roger. Krishnamurti is the congressman for Illinois's eighth district that covers the northwest suburbs like elk Grove Village Schaumburg in Elgin Anti joins me now with a democratic response to the president's proposal congressman. Thanks for joining us. Glad to be here. Thank you so much so this budget would slash snap benefits also known as food stamps. I understand this was a program that your family relied on when you were a child so it must must be very personal for you. What terms proposed snap cuts? Look like what would it mean for people who use these services. It basically amounts to tightening eligibility requirements requirements We actually conducted a hearing Just the other day Regarding this particular issue and you know essentially what it does is it makes it harder for for indigent or poor people especially in high cost areas such as Chicago or other metropolitan areas from being being able to access us these benefits and it also puts a lot of children out of reach of these benefits and it. It disqualifies them even for school lunches so it takes food OUTTA their mouths not only at home but at school and this is this is appalling and how how does it reduce the eligibility of some people folks who who are above one hundred thirty percent of the poverty line can be eligible for snap benefits if After you deduct the cost of housing and transportation and other certain Staple portions of their budget They are then Eh. Below one hundred thirty percent of the poverty line they can then qualify for snap. Well what president trump is proposing. Is that they no longer or have those deductions made and that one hundred thirty percent of the poverty line be the kind of absolute threshold all around the country regardless artless of where you live which makes no sense because it obviously costs a lot more to live in Chicago for instance than it does in a rural area or some other replace in the United States so it defies logic and it's also wrong well Medicare and Medicaid under the proposal would also be caught. What sorts of cuts what we see there well? The president is proposing six hundred billion dollars in cuts for Medicare He's proposing nine hundred billion dollars in cuts in Medicaid Medicaid. He's also proposing to cut other agencies including up to twenty seven percent of EPA's budget and he's also proposing the cut a ten percent of the education department's budget among other things. This is a budget that is dead on arrival because almost all members of our caucus in in a lot of members of the other side are going to pose them. So this is Something that I believe is not realistic. And it. Also points the way forward a to to A Place Americans. Don't WanNa go well as you say. This is the president's initial budget proposal. It would be very unlikely for all of it to stay intact but looking at the big picture. What concerns you most about the plan? It points to a three percent growth rate in the economy which we've never achieved and it also still projects a budget deficit of a trillion dollars even in a year when the budget is enacted it basically Refuses refuses to make cuts in certain areas that Should face certain cuts so for instance the Defense Department but it proposes large cuts in other areas. Where where you know vulnerable and others including our children by the way Rely for very important resources And so I don't think that this is really a realistic budget. And it points to values that as I said Americans don't subscribe to well as you mentioned and defense spending would increase by zero point three percent in this budget proposal. The United States currently spends more on its military budget than the next seven countries combined combined. What I heard you say there was that you think this is a place where we could actually cut is accurate? Yeah I mean one thing which Your listeners probably already you know is that Congress has a has a habit of actually spending more money on the military then even the commanders of the military want and the the reason is very simple. Basically members of Congress ask for resources for their pet military boondoggles and a lot of parts of the the country so that they can get more military spending in their congressional districts or their states and You know we need to have a strong defense we need to be prepared. militarily to deal with variety of challenges but when the commanders and the generals aren't asking for that money we shouldn't be spending it there on on the other hand you know cutting hhs by ten percent including the CDC at a time when we're dealing with the corona virus makes absolutely no sense. It's absolutely the wrong wrong direction We should be going well during his State of the Union address last week. President trump focused on the strength of the economy. Let's listen jobs are booming. You Incomes Asari. Poverty is plummeting. Crime is falling confidences surging and our the country is thriving and highly respected again. The budget plan as it exists right now would extend the individual income tax cuts that were originally scheduled to expire in twenty fifteen to your mind. Is that the right move. The individual no income. Tax cuts are problematic if it means that for instance you know we're going to have state and local tax caps at ten thousand dollars per a family which is a big problem in the Chicago area? I think it's a big problem if it means that corporations are going to pay Zero dollars in taxes. In a lot of instances when small businesses are paying the full corporate tax rate. So there are a lot of problems with the twenty seven tax bill and this budget only compounds compounds them and it's a missed opportunity for us to plan an economic future for this country that means more prosperity for everyone. So where is that opportunity to your mind and I think what we have to talk about is an economic vision where you know folks who Access our public schools can get a better quality education. Not a future. Where they're seeing ten percent cuts in the Department of Education I think it's a future where we actually combat combat manmade climate change. Not a place where we see the department the EPA seeing a twenty six point five percent cut and it also as a future where we we see Our Fiscal House put in order. Not One where we see you know rosy projections of three percent and four percent economic growth growth that will never materialize and that leave our children and grandchildren with saddled with enormous debt For Generations to come so this is This is a missed opportunity that I'm talking about. Are there specific policy moves. You think you would encourage your your colleagues to push on on on whether there are additional tax cuts or places to cut outside of the military. What what's your priority right now? How do we make sure that the federal government isn't paying out the nose for prescription drug cost? Why aren't we talking about the the Medicare Part D program actually being being able to negotiate the price of prescription drugs which is by the way gobbling up our Medicare budget? We should also be talking about you know. So how do we make sure that we Put Social Security on a proper footing and that also means You know making sure that the cap right now. Which is one hundred thirty thousand four hundred dollars? doesn't end up meaning that a disproportionate share of the burden of social security defaulting on people. Who are you know? Basically poor and middle class you know we should be talking about that. We shall be talking about modernizing our defense budget and in other programs such as CR- technical education which is Passion of my office. And how do we improve Education funding for those skills-based and vocational education programs which are so crucial for the two thirds of Americans who don't have a four year college degree and are intending to get one. Well this is we wrap up here. It's not likely that a budget will really take shape until after the presidential election. So how does that affect the way. Congress works between now and November. Okay okay so it's an interesting Process of making sausage here basically He puts this budget proposal forward. But then the various committees committee's come up with their own plans and then submitted to the appropriators Who will then decide how much money gets allocated? And then it will require negotiation between the White House as well as Congress on what the final appropriated amounts are appropriation. There's just a fancy way around here of saying how much we're actually going to spend And that will then become law for The fiscal year ahead. And so. That's that's really where the rubber meets the road. And so far we've been able to protect a lot of programs against the most draconian cuts by the administration. That's Democratic Congressman Roger Krishnamurthy from Illinois's eighth district in suburban Chicago. Giving his reaction to president. Trump's budget proposal released yesterday congressman. Thanks for making time for us. Hey thank you so much. Let's turn to an environmental story. You've heard US talk recently about everything from lake levels to single use plastic forks. Today we want you to know about General Iron Industries. They're scrap metal recycler on the city's north north side. When you google them? Their headline says quote committed to being a good neighbor but complaints about industrial pollution have been coming into city hall for years. Ears health inspectors only site at them once during Mayor Emanuel's administration but Mayor Lightfoot Health Department has taken the company five times in the last two months ons Chicago Tribune reporter. Michael Hawthorne has been following the story and talk about a company. That's been in the area around goose island since the early nineteen hundreds at that time it was tanneries of steel mills. You know just a little bit farther up the river the Vienna be factory. There's still a tannery that makes all the NFL football leather and leather for Major League baseball gloves. But it's changed quite a bit in the last twenty thirty years and gentrification of Lincoln Park of Buck town those north side neighborhoods has increasingly squeezed this Scrap Yard General Iron and now. It's surrounded rounded by a collection of now vacant industrial properties that because the steel mills all left tanneries. All shut down or move somewhere else and end of. It's going to be redeveloped for this Lincoln yards development. That's been in the news a lot and so the scrap shredder sticks out. It used to just kind of blend in in with all the other industries in the neighborhood it stands out and when people call to complain. There's no one else to complain about. Who's left so you can't blame it on the steel mill? The finkel steel mill which is now on the far south side or one of these other operations and It's really when when you when you see it. It looks like something out of one of those Mad Max movies. It's all kinds of just like piles of smashed cars or flattened cars and and and used appliances rebar and whatnot stacked up coming in on barges on the Chicago River and When they shred this material Essentially comes into you know they shove a car into one of these shredders and it comes out like in in shredded metal. You know like kind of a the little chunks. The size of a coffee can what were some of the complaints. Well especially it's the. It's the metallic odors and noise but the metallic odors there's of researcher at you I see a very limited study found that there were higher levels of lung damaging particularly matter down wind from the facility ability on days when the wind was blowing toward the monitors that she set up she was enlisted by a of a member of the community lives near the scrap yard who was frustrated that the city wasn't taking him seriously enough and this is one of these operations where the US EPA the federal EPA here in Chicago. Crackdown on this company. Three times Since the nineteen nineties. That's usually something that's only reserved for the big heavy polluters like say like US steel steal the other steel mills in Northwest Indiana. But you can't count on the feds to be watching every day or every week or month of facility like this It takes a long time to build one of those cases at the federal level But even the most recent case was last year that they settle General Liron. The company agreed to install this device. That was supposed to burn off their emissions but In these tickets that an inspector from the Chicago Department of Public Health has written in the last couple couple of months. It confirms what people in the neighborhood have been talking about for years and we should mention here as we said you know previous inspections largely archly absolved general irons if any wrongdoing somehow by the time the inspector showed up the problems were magically gone and now under the lightfoot administration. Several several inspections have happened. What has this most recent inspection founder? These most recent insult the thing that really stands out to me is very clear language in these inspections. There's no no beating around the Bush the inspector says I smell the sweet The sweets smell of of metal that Burns my nostrils. She sees emissions escaping escaping from the shredders. Those emissions are supposed to be going through a device that Burns off the noxious pollution. That's not happening. According to the inspector time and time again every time she shows up she sees that she also sees shreds of what they call it auto fluff but it's basically like bits of shredded cars and and appliances littering the sidewalk outside the facility. And if you talk to people in the neighborhood they sweep off their porches and they're dax of this material and a very routine basis there's a business on clyborn avenue just a little bit east of the facility that has shown me The air filters from the fact that they have to change every month. Or sometimes you know when the facilities really operating a lot of almost weekly and it's it's black with soot This is something that people see with their own eyes. They smell with their own noses and until recently the city of Chicago. Somehow I didn't see it all so one citation for general iron during former mayor. RAHM Emanuel's eight years office. The same city department has taken it. The North side scrap yard five times what's changed other than the lightfoot administration I I asked the mayor's office about at that and they gave kind of a you know one of the General Mayor Answers about well. We're taking the seriously. And this is part of our overall effort to clean up the city. But it's clear that the old way of doing business at least with this facility has changed under lightfoot when rahm Emanuel was mayor this company spread a lot of money Monte around two local politicians including the mayor the former mayor and a half a million dollars. Greg hines from from cranes was the first person to notice this because because the company that owns a general lab con family has a history of suing each other and making all these pretty tawdry allegations against one another and various various of bits of information have come out in those lawsuits for example one of the more recent lawsuits than in defense document where the mother and one of the brothers counter sues. The other brother. It's revealed that the two brothers had collected sixty four million dollars peace over the past decade eight from this scrap shredder operation. That's a considerable amount of money. Now lightfoot got them to agree to move to the southeast side on a site where uh of steel mills use digs list as well though steel mills have been gone for a very long time. There are a lot of other polluting industries down there that have come to the attention. Attention of of the city have come to the attention of the federal and state governments and especially neighborhood groups and those neighborhood groups are now asking Mayor Mayor Lightfoot and her administration why would you allow this facility to relocate from an area where who found repeated problems and then come to an area where there is well documented proof of just environmental malady after malady. This is the part of the city where these huge mounds of petroleum I am. Coke were blowing a gritty dust into neighborhoods that you know forced the cancellation of little league games. It's where of operations that store manganese for the steel industry blowing this toxic brain damaging meddle into neighborhoods leading. To what now is happening is a major cleanup of yards in that in that neighborhood. Why would did you want another dirty industry so General Iron spokesman gave statement in part not only are the city citations in consistent with the result of the recent tests performed for the state and federal. EPA's but they came after at least two years have regular weekly city inspections without any violations. UNPACK that for us a little bit Well we don't know about the tests so what happened was This federal agreement that I mentioned a couple of minutes ago require the installation of this equipment at the north side Saipa. The company has promised to move that same equipment to its new site. They also have promised that the the new site will be way better than the one on the north side will be completely lately enclosed in the emissions will all be properly controlled. You know once again just a few months. After that that particular settlement with the federal the government was brokered. Here's the lightfoot administration coming in and saying look you've still got problems and while the spokesman's you know free to make the comment that You know we've done this testing for the companies on this testing for the state and federal. EPA's and found nothing wrong. The federal government at least says they're still reviewing the results so we don't really know at this point and unlike I think it's an important point to make and If you're not looking for for this stuff not not just here but anywhere in the city. You're not gonNA find it. I mean it's kind of a simple calculation. The reason why eventually the pet had coke operations on the southeast side while the manganese operations were either forced to leave the city or significantly improve their operations to prevent the the pollution one of the main reasons our main tools that the city and other governments use to get them to clean up their act was they require twenty four seven air monitoring around the facilities. That's never been required at general iron and so it's essentially every now and then when they get in trouble they have a very Well the plan test under optimal conditions and then they usually get a essentially like a vote of clean health and continue operating and then every a few years later or months later people in the neighborhood find. They're more problems so really quickly. We have about a minute laughed this move to the southeast side. That's its plan. For General Iron You said community members. They are pushing back. Is there a possibility that that move won't actually happen That's a good question. I mean I think that's up for the mayor's office related to decide the state of Illinois was what was kind of running clear on to to give them the necessary permits although the state also found out at the related operations generally is now mostly owned by a company out of Cleveland. That company operates for other facilities already on this site the former republic steel site on the calcium at river. They've been operating without the proper permits for the last four years and then also In September of this past year the city cited them for excessive commissions of their own. So there there are questions about this new site and also up just where these scrap shredder should be located. Minneapolis says forced the Some of these companies to move out of the city California has considered designating these facilities as hazardous waste sites and so so is the city of Chicago is the federal and state government. Are they taking this seriously. Enough people in these neighborhoods would say that Chicago Tribune reporter. Michael Hawthorne Orne Michael. Thanks so much for speaking with US extra heavy. And that's Today's reset if you like what you hear we'd love your feed-back hit us up on twitter at WBZ reset. And I met Jay White pop radio. I'm genuine thanks for listening. Let's talk again soon

E259 Ryan & Lindsay - Date Night Architect

"This is fifteen minutes of freedom. I'm your host Ryan del and today is the best day of the week. It's right. Hi, everyone. It's just that was soom someone's feeling confident cocky. For you. Good for you. So today, I wanna share a little bit about our dating life, and it might confuse you for a moment. Dating. And it's no secret Linden are married. We've been married since may nineteen two thousand eighteen. Rounding the corner by times episode airs were like closer to a one year anniversary than we are doing. We first got married that I feel -ccomplish. She didn't yet which means come. We'll be together for five years. Yes. Yeah. Correct. I think Jeff five years I'll go with her one. But one of the I'll say secrets, and this is a listener requests episode. I put out a poll on Instagram does asking for ideas. Right. What do you wanna hear a speak about? Let's like how do you keep dating your wife? How do you guys? Keep dating and anatomy that you might not realize even though we've been married we still consciously data other. That's important. I don't know if we've talked about that before I don't think. So I mean, we've dated each other even while we were quote, unquote, dating dating engaged all these labels that we put on ourselves like it's all ridiculous to me. Right. Just because you're getting gauge you're married does not mean, you have to stop courting your significant other, of course, and with that courting level brings us into a nice segue of what I personally do like share my side to start with. There's something that I do that shared before that was brought into my world from wake-up warrior. The men's groups are by gear Jay white. There's no longer kings Kip. But there is wake up where you dot com. If you wanna check it out. Where there's something that we do called the generals tent, and I've adopted that I have my own methodology little different than what he trained on what he taught me. But I turn my clients incomparable, essentially what you do on a Sunday for me personally. He's a little bit of time planning out your week. But you also take a moment he looked back at your past week and talk about your successes and failures and just we want itemize which wanna change. One of the core components in that is taking some time on that day to plan an actual date with your significant other granted wake up warriors specifically designed for men that are married. I didn't. But this applies to if you're dating this applies. If you're on the rocks like this is Lewisham that will work for you. Don't care where you're at your relationship. And if you're not one right now, listen take note, it will make your next relationship so much better. Because I sit out on a Sunday. I think what would Lindsey want to do this week. Not. What does Ryan wanna do? Not. What is convenient for me? Like, what does Lindsay wanna do? But I don't ask her, right? I'm not like this is not a conversation like Lindsey what you wanna do this week. And we certainly have those days like make no mistake, we get. We're very fortunate to have a beautiful daughter that of course is not with us one hundred percent of the time because she's with her biological father. It's divorce perks is what we call those. Absolutely. We don't have to hire a sitter. We have a couple of nights where we are just by yourselves. We can just be us. And so I come up with some ideas of things that I think she might like, and one example that comes to mind sharing this episode is I know that she actually enjoys cooking like she enjoys kitchens, she enjoys and physically design element of a kitchen and fillers. Like, it's it's her filler. I'm happy girl. So okay. What can I do around that? I think about it. And it's like, okay. Well, we turn the cook a home cooked meal. Right. I could. Lay out our kitchen and make it as fancies. I can I can't remodel the whole thing right now. But I can go to the store and buy food surprise. And I've certainly done that before. That's an easy. I'll say low cost way to do things. So also these date nights, I refer to you don't have to multimillionaire doesn't have to be so lavish something that I've shared on other episodes love plus funny connection. So, you know, okay, done the cooking at home thing. We can spice it up or do it together. We could do naked cooking name something. That doesn't really hit home. There's something here in Columbus called. I think it's Searle table. And if you don't have one in your city Searle table, essentially, you have to book a reservation, and you go, and there's professional chefs there, and they have all the supplies and all the ingredients and all the everything you need to cook. And they teach you how to cook this very nice meal super fancy, and we had never been there at least not together. I don't care if she's been. There was somebody else that was before me nine never been wonderful either at I. But we've pass it. Right. It's it's at a place. It's at a local shopping center called eastern town center where we literally pass it. Every time we go there. That's what pops in my brain. And maybe pops in my heart. Like, I believe a lot of this comes from a higher power. Right. It's not just my brain that saying that. So that's why I'm gonna do. And so to start with before I bring up to her. I look in the calendar. Right. I see what's available. See the days and times because you have to make a reservation. This is not something you just get to wing. And so I see there's one or two options. And so I don't tell her what's going on essays. Like, what are you going on this week? Well, I've got this at the other all the things she does right horseriding kids girl time things we all things. And because we both don't have John on Monday. Typically, Monday nights are good night's for date nights. Shay. I don't have anything on Monday. I'm gonna ride my horse, but I can move that around and do whatever. Beautiful. So I see go back into my office and up being sneaky right him to sit in my office, Matt rotator YES question, and knowing me, I could've little like yelled out from inside the office just bellowed out like it's not as seductive as might sound at this moment. But actually gives me that feedback. Cheers, me that information. I'm able to look and see. Okay. Well, there's a points of able at five and at seven, and let's say at nine so I know we can make the seven can make that happen. So I confirmed that I pay for the seven o'clock appointment, I don't tell her. It's not should not looking forward the mail confirmation comes to me. And so then I saw planning on my head. Okay. What do I have to pull this off? Well, it's a thirty five minute drive from our house to there. And I might as well say forty five minutes just to be safe. And our let me I gotta leave work earlier because I gotta get home to pick her up and do some things that way that's aren't going backwards. I wanna be there by six forty five. So magically took I gotta leave work by five they to do all these things. I gotta tell her to be ready at our house ready dressed by six. And then my inevitable question is what should I wear? What are we doing? So that I know appropriate style. And I never answer that question. Never my feedback to her is I'll be wearing and I share with. Her what I'll have on. And sometimes there's a time where else I look you can't wear open. Toed shoes, you can't wear a skirt address. Right. But if it's not that specific decided what I'm gonna be wearing into said just be ready by this time. And look you wanna look and shows together. Well, right. So it's not a thing of is she made up enough or not. And so that I simply execute on that plan, I go I'm home pick her up. We have conversation the whole in the car. It's not about anything heavy, but it's also not about anything light. It's just wherever the conversation. Takes it self. We park we get out. I hold her hand as were walking down this. You know, it's an outdoor is an outdoor shopping shopping center a mall, but it's, but it's outside, and it's all lit up in stores and stuff, and then we park it normal spots where normally park, and we just happened to walk right in the surly table and she super excited because it's it's new, but we stop as we get there. And we turn around we take a picture with our phones like commemorating the experience with a selfie like holding our hand way out and like see surly table behind us like the sign, and then we go inside and were present right now, there's things with kids and phone can't always be away in these this. Off. But like while were there other than taking some pictures, and I love my wife. She's posting on Instagram and all this stuff of where she's at because she's excited. Right. So there's double edged sword on my side of being present. And like wanting her to be enjoying the moment. Also, like all Anoc this bottle the park because she's so happy, she's taking pictures time and hosting it. Right. So she's posting it I probably post one or two that she does it. And then it's pretty much phones away. And we're sitting there, and we're conversant with other people and we're cooking new meals and we end up buying stuff. We don't need for inside the kitchen. The one thing you little us like a dish rag holder. It was not supposed to be and the little the little tablespoon measuring thing and the scraper whatever. The coolest kitchen gadgets side note, which is great. So we buy and then we like, we're we're done by nine thirty maybe maybe nine then we have a great time and hold her hand. And I go to the car, and I opened the car door, and she gets in, and we have another conversation the way home, and then we're home right in. I won't speak for how that makes you feel. But for how it makes me feel as a man is accomplished. I came up with a plan. I actually the plan. It was one that I didn't need feedback from somebody else that also establishes me this'll piss off some of you, ladies, but only because you're not being honest with yourself. Women like men, the take control it doesn't mean controlling. There's something I believe genetically coded door DNA where women want a strong powerful, man. That does not mean you get to go that. It's not me maniacal that does not mean that to be super big and muscular like people that are going to view it that way are going to spin it. However, they want to sure, but I want to frame it up the right way. Right. Like if you're in a relationship as a man right now, and you're struggling, right? There's something that's not quite going the right way, this should chance you just need to show back up as the man that takes control, you think about when you first started dating I guarantee when you I wanted to ask the girl that you asked out you asked her out. She said, yes, then you came up with a plan. And then you picked her up at a time. You probably surprise unless you ask where she might wanna eat because you wanna make sure should have allergies or some dumb shit like that. A real stupid every place that we would ever go to if you had algae's for shellfish. Yeah. Even the the most base level seafood restaurants have chicken. I thought the counts right, especially as you start. And the thought that counts never goes away. Because that's the date night is it's not the fact that you spent a hundred dollars on dinner. It's not the fact that you took somebody the fantas restaurant or you bought the nicest flowers, it's at you as a man stopped the business of your day and made a woman in your life feel important important that you planned out a whole series of events, and then showed up and were president of to pull them off. And then we're present on the way home. Now men were pretty myopic. Right. We were kind of like single tracked individuals we care about being fed. And we care about another effort kind of the past that we go down paid. Yeah. We do care about being paid as well. But some of us, right? That could even pushed the side as long as we're having enough sex. And so, of course, we got fed right? We went we went to certain table. We had a nice meal we made it for our selves, we ate at tasted. Good, and I will leave up to interpretation. The fact if the other f- actually happened, but I can guarantee you that there's a much higher likelihood in that evening than most other evenings to have that be something that happens. Right. Not that. I don't believe we should ever do something for personal gain. Like good things come to those that weight. Let's be real you put in the work. You do things right way. You might get laid in the end. How did all that stuff? Make you feel sweetheart. Well, I mean, you you pretty much just answered it. Right. It it it made me feel that you were being thoughtful considerate. And you looked at the date is something I would wanna do for my point of view. So that made me feel important. Maybe feel like you were, you know, truly thinking about what I would enjoy and not I don't know anything that you would enjoy that. I wouldn't enjoy typically we like to do the same things, but say, I am, you know, you wanna go Alliot or wrestling. And maybe that's just not my deal. What wall stop like, I think it's preposterous to pay to go somewhere to cook your own food steak stone ridiculous table ridiculous now melting pot. I paid a bunch of money to show up somewhere for somebody. Give me raw food. So I can cook myself, and then eat it what the fuck is that that makes no sense to me melting pot once for one of our my plan date nights. And he was like, I don't get this. I don't get this at all because I'm sitting here, and we're paying a bunch of money to sit and cook our own food, and it's taking forever to cook on top of that. And you know, I don't get it. Well, it was the experience it was the experience, but that was a date night. Not that was failed. Right because there's an effort. Yeah. But Ben you hadn't been Lindsey might have. Dance on the wrong side of the line was she as she's planning the date nights. She didn't stop and think like what are things of my husband or fiance. Remember, probably say that point what are the things that he would really like to do because running through that filter. I as you plan a date makes it so we're not cooking shit in cheese. For a lot of money when I don't like cheese that much and I don't want to cook my own food. It was still an experience. I'm glad we got to go. It was more experienced than the the food thing. But yeah. So back back to the original question. I it made me feel important like you were really thinking about me and putting in the effort. And then of course, you did all the right things by opening my door, and you know, holding my hand, which to be honest as we get busy in life. You don't always do it. I think I'm the first woman that you've ever held hands with and open doors for because I asked that if you are probably open doors for other people not as a consistent, not not like doors doors into buildings because you always do that even car doors. Sometimes right. Like, it's I have no problem saying I get self consumed in this game of life that we play is not a game of perfection. Like, I'm I'm consistent a work in progress. Like, I don't ever wanna come off as you. Listen to this that I have all this stuff figured out that I'm perfect Huzzah. And are perfect boss or co worker or coach like there's some things, and I don't always open your door. Yeah. No now feel like you are perfectly capable when. It's raining. We don't have an umbrella. Very functional hands legs work like. Yeah. You got got it. Yes. I so those things than leading up to what we've talked about about intimacy before on on a podcast when you pay attention to a woman, and she feels important and she feels beautiful and she feels like she is being put first than those things are emotional keys for her to then feel open for intimacy men, you can purely just be physical. It doesn't matter. You just not all of us. Right. Not all of you. But majority majority it's just a physical aspect of a means to an end, but women need more of a motion connection. I not all women, but majority. That's fair. I've been right now. Screw it. We covered an appreciable. We just told us occurred all in the stuff like the the physical side of how my body is working right now. Like, I'm back to this. It may be time of year. Right. Because it was December of last year. All of a sudden, I looked down. And as I have a beautiful wife that is now my wife who I love honor respect. Appreciate I go on date nights. I do all types of stuff. I come home. I've left done a great job believe my phone away. Like, I'm fully present in the moment. I don't give shit. And then we go to bed, and it's not that late and I looked down. And I'm like man, my my my Twiggy Google berries are just not up for upper actions out. There's nothing. We I wanna work into it. And it's just he does does he has no sex drive. No. It's crazy right now. Yeah. I don't get it. Right. Like, I got last year complete lack of Tassara, and there's all your anabolics. Yeah. But here we are year removed and grant I've had prescriptions all those things for very low doses. And even then there's been sporadic use. Really, I can't even say use right? Like, it's super sporadic. And what I typically do is. It's like a band aid at that moment. It's like, okay. Sexual has been down. Mike. I can Gill jumpstart. What's crazy? So when I get jump started. Like when when when you jump starving like, I'm ready, the actions there, right? Yeah. My my you're just not the initiator ever. No. I'm not running to the be. I'm not running eight-plus level. I'm not a plus game in this. But I'm certainly a range. I'm not maybe a minus sometime certainly a solid. A plus is a rarity last weekend wasn't eight-plus brought any plus game. You did very eight-plus game surprising. I don't even know why I got off on the tangent. This is not this is not the subject on me, though. But it happens, right? Like this the other side of life are our relationship is different because we're secure enough. And how we communicate that what had could happen for some people all of a sudden we had three years of heightened intimacy right in granted. I had some extra stimulation being anabolics. Right. External gas on the fire. Have you wanna say it also had a smoking hot girlfriend fiance now wife, right? That helps a lot. But when that dies off it's not because we're married. It's not because I don't love you. It's not because I'm not attracted to not because I'm cheating on you. It's not because there's somebody else. A hundred percent is not because I'm masturbating like we can go down this list of things as you're sitting there thinking like it's one of these other things. Now, it's just not I know, and I know you so I don't even like those things don't even cross my mind, but it's because of the security and the the amount that we communicate right, right? Like, there's there's no secret. Like, I would have no problem telling you if I'm a flogging the dolphin every once in a while the dolphins dead swimming is not going anywhere is not jumping out of the water. I know it will come. Yes, it will come back. And I mean, we've talked about this before like you've run yourself so hard with your clients, and and work and all that in your days are extremely long, and there's just a thousand things going on all the time that when you finally get to this safe space of home with the security of your family and just the it's just the safe place the quiet zone your body. Finally is like, okay. And you're out you're out it just I mean. Well, yes. But I wanna make sure like Al I'll definitely had myself up here at home at seven forty five. I'm not asleep by eight. No, no, no, I have dinner on presently play games. Gee, we watch them. You know, not even mindless TV like that doesn't happen. Typically till g goes to bed return on something to decompress, but we're still having conversation than the couch. What happens is the minute. We go to our bedroom, and I lay down. Yeah. He's done over. Even like over on the couch, though. Yeah. To appoint when you sit down. Like, maybe that's the solution. Maybe it is. You know, we go to bed at nine thirty. We'll get tough. We have kid kids kid. We have a kid. They can't the when she goes to bed at nine. It's super tough to like we need more sound deadening far. I know because she didn't like now that she's older she pays attention to what goes on. And she's not she can be upstairs at nine, but she's not asleep though. That's what happens is we wait to go to bed, and we watch TV or do whatever we do for that period of time talk. And I certainly know by ten o'clock. I I want to be in bed like I'm exhausted. And so we go to bed, and it is ten o'clock at that point. Then you brush your teeth and wash your face and do the stuff that you do. And I do stuff that I do. And it's. It's over more times than that you get in bed, and I've already been drooling. Yes. Which crazy? Yeah. Just it's what it is right now. Honey, what that I know I want to I want to be it off items of clothing and having to replace them because I rip them. But that's just not currently the reality of the situation. I suppose from the way that I teach people the way I believe because I made a conscious awareness that I can choose to act differently either some physiological responses just aren't happening, right. And. For those of you that are more medical based people that are listening. Like, I'm not storing additional body fat right now than typical right? I wouldn't say my body comes changed my scale weights almost identical. The amount of muscle carrying almost identical. My sleep patterns are super consistent. My Rhames leap is consistent dietary things might not be all where the should be Dafur. The fact of eating junk food like bad food eating enough. Yeah. Like, I burn give or take seven to eight thousand calories a day if I'm lucky I'm probably eating three thousand. So I think the calorie deficit could be part of it. But there's something going on inside that it's just like, I'm thirty four almost thirty five. I should be like you've is you're listening. If you haven't seen my wife, go to go to her Instagram Lindsey or watch this on my page or go to YouTube and type in fifteen minutes to freedom. Like, you'll see? I'm I got a fool deck of cards that are stacked in my favor. That's right profit the table. Thank you. You're welcome. So it's been all that around from the fact of intimacy from date night. Yeah. I'm in. That's typically, right? When people go out on dates, especially when your parents, and you have that connection time that's not an identifying or not a police where you just identify as being apparent. We're basically who you were as a couple before kids existed because that gets lost right? It gets lost real quick. Because all you're talking about is the kids and what they've got going on. And like remember what it was to be a couple and find that space before you identifies parents identify as husband wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, whatever your status may be. And then that typically leads to intimacy at the end of the night because that's what the date night is four. It's four holding space for each other reconnecting, and when you reconnect with your spouse, then physically want to reconnect, absolutely. Blouson wanna share a slightly different perspective because there's a chance as you're listening. You're relationship is not as. Coherent as Lindsay Nuys. Yeah. Had plenty clients that are currently married that when I met them that part of their life. If we look at the four quadrants of a four dimensional reality. I believe we can live that was a quadrant. That was on life support doctor if they're gonna stay married natural is going to happen zero intimacy zero connection. He gets the part of like, okay, we're coaching. Let's talk about date nights like this gas like what is that? I can't do that you'd understand. Right. We don't even talk is possible. No, it is possible. Like, the absolute reasons to why this should happen is because you don't currently talk. Right. You have to make a choice to do it. Yeah. And set aside time to make that person feel important. I don't care if you're woman that's listening or man, right? I've got clients on both sides of that fence have went through their own process of progress in the recalibrate or what it means to be in a relationship effective, literally leaning in and just owning it, right? Like, I still love you. I realized that we have not communicated the right way. I realized I have not shared with you what I'm thinking feeling. I have some things planned now. Can we go start over or not all these things that we think we need to say like you're not starting over from anything like magical? You can't say can we start over and it just forgives? The fact you've been an asshole for two or three years six years ten years you have to start somewhere, but you start at the fact of just courting again, right? You don't have to you're not going to dinner to solve the world's issues. You're not gonna fix which you messed up in one dinner. You're not going to magically come home and have passionate sex. If you haven't had sex in months like that's not what this is. It's a fact of realigning yourself will what actually caused the relationship to start? Why did it get? Why was it? Good because you didn't get married or you're not with somebody for three or four years because it wasn't good. Right. Like it had to be good at one point then to lean into that stuff. Right. And keep the conversation not light. But you're not there to argue like you're not going on a date night to talk about really heavy stuff. Try to have some kind of physical touch. I'm not talking about intimate touch. But like holding hands walking into a restaurant holding hands are touching legs at the table, something that gives you that physical connection to that person. Because that when you love someone sparks an emotional response. That's like a physical need. I will expand upon that just one step further. So I love where you're coming from. But let's say and this is not to throw anyone in the bus. You had been married before. And there's a point near relationship where you knew the relationship was on life support if not even flat lines, right? You need some charging paddles. Fair. If at that point, your ex husband had tried to take you out on a date and tried to hold your hand and tried to play footsie under the table. There's a chance I don't didn't know you then I certainly don't know your name as of all the part of your relationship. But there's a chance that there's been so much separation that point that has actually too far. I can't answer that question because I'm a personalized physical touch. I was neglected for so fucking long that. A little bit of something. What made a huge difference for me? What I grew with that. I'm sharing this. Because to me is a man if you open door for woman, you're opening the door. So she walks into an establishment before you. It's a perfect time to kind of guide her in gently touch a small of her back like engage, right? If you'll know from the way that you feel from the way that she looks at you from the way, she doesn't two way she walks quicker to get in front of you. You'll know where that balancing points at in that moment, the handhold can be a lot right? That can be especially if you've had no touch at all he reach for hand. There's a chance that could be like what is this guy doing which is so sad and strange coming from husband to wife or vice versa? But this relationships there, we've all been there. Right. I've had failed relationships that certainly have pulled away from done all that stuff. It's not a thing of the passage. The fact of wanna share with you as a man that's listening like I because I'm I have dealt with this now with multiple clients. You just start with what feels natural right? It's going to feel a little natural, right? As part of this because you haven't won a date, and you haven't made time and the kids have gotten the way and all this stuff has happened where you forgot to date your wife until feels really strange to start with. So maybe you can't physically the house. You don't have the money for babysitter. Had that happened before we clydes. There's all types of things she works. You work. That's tough to find time. A date night can literally be making sure the kids are all in bed by nine or in their bedrooms. And you say the couch or you go outside, and you just have one on one time where you just talk and just be do something that makes her feel special, especially if you're a man. And to see where it takes you warm up to the point that three weeks from now your goal is in your mind, you to rub her feet on the couch and have received and not wanna kick your fucking John because men as you're listening. There are plenty of us that are so hell bent on. The fact that money is going to make our family's happy. And that's the litmus test for success that we lose sight of what really matters. And I've been there before. All that stuff will go wave actually go because you die at a guy because you spend it go because you lose it go his never had it doesn't ever go as like actual love. Real honest. Love doesn't go way. We do everything we can to burn it to the ground. But never really leave. I can assure you real love to my wife. I give her every reason in the world to have a go way. It didn't go away at the same point in time. I had a bunch of money. I gave it every chance to leave. And it went balls out. It was gone bags packed. It's out the door. Same time in life. So it is important to start. Right. You don't have to have what's important said over and over again, you don't have to have a bunch of money. I do anything fancy either. It's not a big. It's it's just the thought and the effort not the experience like the place. The thing. The president is not a it's it's a it's a thought. It's a saying over and over again love. Plus funny was connection the experience that you get to have with your stigma pick and other. And just be. Yeah. And this another thing that was just pops in my head before we wrap this up. Many of my clients had lost sight of what their significant other boyfriend girlfriend husband wife like to do for fun. Thank you become so disconnected so self consume that you forgot to ask what your partner wants to do for fun because it's super easy to plan a date night. If you remember the last time, they laughed in your presence. And what were you doing then create a comparable experience there RIA reinitiate some of those in a positive response feedback. Loops. What I ask you what your wife like to do? I don't remember. I don't know somebody asked you that what you say. Hang on kitchens. Good. There's things experience new restaurants. You know? I'll say like shopping for like homegoods stuff to shop for how stuff doesn't be big expensive stuff. There's there's a list of things that are that way. I would say new experiences that are things to better your body in the way that you feel flow, tanks Krajine chambers. Right. Like, we've got we've got things that we do that you enjoy. So if those are the six things, and I can ride down like, okay, what are all the off off shoots of that? Okay. Maybe, you know, your wife's ride horses, but you don't have the money to physically own lease buy a horse on the table. I guarantee there's like a horse riding apparel store there. I don't even know those places are called. Right. Yeah. Tax store does attacks or somewhere. You can drive to plan a date around going to the tax door, and like asking her what she likes and why these things are important 'cause I knew nothing about it. Right. I've been tax torn out twice. Those even date is just I went either. 'cause I was forced to because I was curious problem while I was forced to didn't know you've ever been to the tax door. We went there together which one the one that is off of. Seventy one no players. All right by the overpass where Brown's boxing gym used to be the conversations over to the left. Yeah. I didn't realize you've ever been there. I've been in there. So many times that I forget who's been in there and who's not been bed when you do things out of love. There's a chance that your wife is just not going to remember you went there. Now, I really can't recall this I feel like we talked about it. And I showed you where it was. But I know you've been in there. It's okay. I believe you. We went in the back section where there's no longer. It's not all fancy and nicer little linoleum pads or whatever just how rack okay? Yeah. Now, remember, certainly. Been they're awesome. Memorable. Remember, also listening. Don't do things for extra validation. You know, if you gotta do it for yourself, which I the people will let you down at least fifty percent of the time. Well, you did it for me. 'cause you know, I like to do that stuff. But I'm in there so often that I didn't remember do that for me. Thank you, Honey. Super impactful. Yeah. I appreciate it. I think any of these tips if you can apply them to your dating life your relationship. Life will help you lead more fulfilled existence with your partner. Like, it just we make things so complicated. And what loses most people, especially as I work with them. As I can't be this easy. It just can't be this easy. Like, what do you mean? This all you all I have to do just trust the process is dead serious doing it. Is that easy though? Yeah. It's like show up be present plan. Stay countable. Do the right thing. Panton chen. Tell somebody you love them when you love them create some healthy habits around making sure you Ida my time for yourself and your partner you gotta put yourself first. The life gets better. And religious get better. And I'm certainly hoping after tonight's episode. That we get a little raising the flag tonight. You're trying to get fresh. I would I would love to my mind. Are at home. We are. We are going there. We are visiting town pound town how other people can mad bad choice. Yeah. Wrap it up sister. Take us home. Really hate when you do that to me why. So so easy. It's just take the lessons that we talked today. Take some of the things have worked for Linden. I if you plan to your life every day there after you'll be able to shit done.

Today was not a slow weekend for professional wrestling going in fact yesterday was probably the biggest day of the year for rustling in terms of shows. We had a new japan one show in the morning three hours. We add a a six hour summer slam in the afternoon and then we had another three hour g one in the evening so if you watched just everything you watch twelve hours of professional wrestling just yesterday alone and there was a lot of wrestling to talk about yesterday okay. We had all sorts of things happening. There is a new g. One champion coda bushy won this year's g. one over jay white in and outstanding main main event in the finals of the g. One on sunday night we had great matches with tallahassee. Nakada versus sabin manure suzuki manure suzuki pinned okada. He is presumably the number one contender for the g. p. title after not even being in the g one. We had the return for one night. At least of kency already chabad to set up the he'll turn of kenta candidate roy them left them laying and sat on his chest in the ultimate sign of disrespect. I don't think that shibata is returning to wrestling. They did a lot more within physically than i thought they would but they turn kim to heal feel. That was the big angle on sunday night. We have a new w._b._z. Champions seth rollins beat brooklyn with a curb stomp. It's wrestlemainia all all over again. Everybody we add some good matches on this show. Some bad matches on the show. Good crowd bad crowd all in the same evening.

The show brian elber is here wrestling observer lab mix reveal so wrestling observer. That pretty much ran over all of the biggest news in the opening segment dan throughout the numbers. If you want to contact us here today eight four four four eleven five for eleven is the phone number at is toll free eight four four four eleven five four eleven and i want to start with this right here here. In case you guys didn't here because it wasn't even mentioned on observer radio last night. This person wants to know what is more surprising edge spearing elias or worship getting physical with the bullet club well the answer to be a fair man is they're both shocking and the reality two years as awesome is that shibata angle was with kanta and it was awesome. It's one of the greatest angles you'll ever see the reality he is this guy shibata nearly died it bleeding on the brain at a very very serious knee injury and at the time time he was told he was never going to wrestle again and i don't know what's going on. They kept this a super big secret last night from everybody. They're like nobody. Nobody knew that he was going to be there but as of the end of last night the belief was he's actually not going to be wrestling. He's not coming back for a match with kenta now. I suppose they could do that. They could try to keep him safe. They were very careful last night to try to stay as far away from his head. It's possible there was a p._k. Which was mostly to the shoulder but be careful and with edge. I mean it's really the same story edges. His neck was so bad the they wouldn't even allow him to do a retirement match of any sort whatsoever not like edge and christian and a tag and he does like one spot and wins. They wouldn't let him do anything. In the ring and yesterday he showed up and delivered a spear so it was a very interesting day allowing guys at one point. We're told you can never do anything physical in this ring again. Both of them ended up out there doing physical things one had way more impact than the other. I can tell you ed much wouldn't even talk about last night and dave called the chabad angle one of the greatest singles he'd seen in like twenty five years so very very different usages of guys who should never be in the ring again. We'll see what happens with shibata but the reality is one way the other whether the guy ever wrestles again and everybody wants to have that match with kenta whether he ever russell's again his usage in that angle helped propel kenta from a guy who in the g one a couple of days ago according to dave people wanted to retire because he botched a spot twelve being the hottest. He'll in all of new japan probably the hottest he'll. They've had hadn't forever because of what he did to shibata. It was a tremendous angle. It was awesome. How does he'll since maybe jay white joining the bullet club right. You know it's an here's the bullet club concept. It's dead. It's buried. I have heard that now going back to finn valor. They're gonna they're gonna ruin everything <hes> with this and and somehow they keep it going somehow some way when you are sick of it they they find a way to keep the damn thing going in it is it is really quite impressive and and even if he never steps foot in the ring again that was an all time rangel no matter how you want to cut it that was a classic amazing angle that had the had the most important thing the realism because everybody knew what happened with with shibata and everybody knows why he couldn't come back so to see him. Go in and get physical of course nobody expected it. It's absolutely amazing and will he have somebody at his employees that he goes out there and now feuds is with kenta with is this about goto at first and then maybe a bill to somebody at the dome. You know who knows. Maybe it'll be him at the dome laugh to see. I kinda be honest honest. I kind of hope that doesn't happen. <hes> as much as i'd love to see shibata come back for one match. The reality is i would much rather see him be safe to so i had enough good memories category shibata. I don't need to see him. Come back so we'll have to see what happens there edge you know. I don't know how this is any different than maybe something on an acting etc something like that. I i don't know how this is justified in anybody's minds to but you know grown man. He knows his body <hes> yeah. I don't even know what to say if he thought but he can pull it off safe and he wanted to do it just that one more time than i guess okay and what do you do you have them sign a <hes> a no fault all before he gets in there and do you have his agent do it his lawyer look at it. I mean i don't know exactly what the details are behind that you know but again you know the fact he was able to do what happened awesome and that's probably all we're gonna have receive it again but it's kinda to bad in edges case. It's getting overshadowed so much with whatever happened on the show and then what took place all weekend long worldwide all right very very quickly here. If you didn't watch anything yesterday you wanna know what to watch. Natty versus becky lynch submission match was pretty good. Ziglar and goldberg was exactly what you would expect goldberg destroyed. Him came back destroyed him again. Came back destroyed him a third time ricochet versus a._j. A._j. for the u._s. title was a very good match that no buddy cared about at all. Do you like close. We'll get to that same with ember ember moon and bailey although that was not nearly as good as a rickshaw match kevin owens shane mcmahon shane mcmahon is absolutely wretched in the ring but the fans love this match catch and so if you wanna see match with great he watched that one charlotte and trish i thought was a good match. All things considered not a great match. They worked their asses off trish stratus last match so if you want to see history watch that one or inverse kofi for the u._s. title was an average match with an awful finish awful finish just just a lame count out. We can talk about that later. Fiend destroyed fin valor quickly because valor either now or after rod tonight is taking time off to finish it should have been the gimmick is great. The fans loved the gimmick. It's totally different thumbs up and the summer slam made event was as i thought outstanding. I thought they just had a great match. They turned seth rollins from a guy who got booed coming out to a guy who was cheered eared like crazy. After the match he beat brock lesser with a curb stomp. He overcame all the odds. He took a wild beating and one in the end. I thought that was fantastic. Any thousands summer slam much about nothing when he came to sets reaction wondering what was going to be last night you know he was booed well yeah. He was a different. This might not work out for him but it was such a great match turned the people can it's that it's that brock listener x factor that he just you know nobody else is going to pick up seth rollins by his his rib tape and swim around and such a cartoonish fashions awesome. That's when wrestling amine again at the reality of the shibata in the unexpected of something so simple it can be done so well. I mean the same exact exactly with with brock and seth rollins with that story and you know it's too bad the whole build up for this show sucked so bad in so many cases whether it be ember and bailey or whether it even be you know the lead up to this. I thought was was not very well very well done but yeah. They certainly saved the day with that the main event last night for for sure. I've gotten a lot of messages by the way before we go to the g. one matches. You should watch that the new w._b. Network there were relied complaints about it. There are a lot of glitches. I talked about this a couple of days ago. They're aware of them. They are trying to fix them but one thing that apparently is it's a thing on the new network. You cannot watch on multiple devices. You cannot share your password. I've gotten messages all day today. From people who they were sharing with a friend and one of them could not watch it this. I was watching the living room he went to make snacks turn on his tablet and the network work in the living room shut off saying the maximum number of devices had been reached which was one so four when he did launched. It hasn't fourteen fourteen for five years. Now i've heard about people sharing their password with multiple people and i always ask y like understand one or two because maybe you're watching upstairs and downstairs or whatever but i mean i had people saying i share with like eight friends or whatever now it is set to one which is probably that's excessive. Okay i go in the other room and watch it. That's excessive well. I think you also might want to refresh fresher your stuff as well too because it happened to me <hes> but then i refresh now it was on my phone and my computer and it was fine so there seems to be two or maybe it's also could be a case of i._p. Or something like that too but i didn't have a problem with too but that's good. I mean they should have done that. I mean from a business point of view is is incredibly stupid to have so many people out there bragging so much of how they're taking money out of your pocket now with that said there's some other aspects of it that desperately need to be pretty test back in a moment observer live now the no napa auto parts stores of napa auto care centers.

You're listening to wrestling observer live with bryan alvarez and mike simple v on the sports byline broadcasting network begging the show brian alvarez here wrestling observer live mexican wrestling observer dot com last night. I tweeted listener lifting an airplane spinning rollins around by his rib tape is better than anything that she one command me boy oh boy. You can't say anything on twitter. I'll come at you. The the fire in vitriol that this wacky goofy tweet led to was completely insane but to be fair. I did watch that before. I watched both of gene shows last night and i will say that there were in fact better things on the g. One then listener spinning around by his ripped tape and one of those was. Let's just start from the beginning. The b-block finals yon overseas jeff cobb was all right ishi ishi versus taichi taichi of all people had the greatest match. There was nobody s there was no gimmicks wchs there was no interference taichi went out. There attacked him from the opening bell. Beat the hell out of them. They fought back and forth like crazy. People and finally finally taichi hit the black mephisto for the pin so he's obviously the number one contender for the never title this match. Everybody was so good. If you hate taichi watch this match and you will see how good tai chi is capable of being when he's not doing all of the b._s. That match was it was great. Jews robinson jon moxley was fine. Goto and shingo had an absolutely incredible match which by the way if you wanna know a spot that was better than brock leser spinning seth rollins run by his rib team. They did this spot where they both hit the ropes at the same sometime and i'm not talking like this lame rope eating you see today. This is like undertaker shawn michaels in their prime hit the ropes they hit these rope so hard and they ran at each other and shingo hit him in mid run with pumping bomber and goto flipped like ten times in the air and crashed on the ground and sweat was flying it was i swear to god. I don't care all you people. Tell me that stan hansen would disagree that right. There was the single greatest leary spot what i've ever seen in my life and i'm not even being hyperbolic or whatever hyper-baric. I'm not in an oxygen chamber. I put this up on my twitter at bryan alvarez. Go watch this spot. I watched it fifty times over over again. My god that was awesome. I told him jay white was great but it wasn't as good as goto shingo and then a night to another tremendous night coat obuchi j. widen g one finals. I hear people talking about <hes>. Jay white sucked not understanding understanding. What a he'll is because they're so concerned about entering grappling. This guy was the best he'll ever co. Two bucci was the best baby face ever all. Oh you idiot to talk about oh baby face heels. Don't matter get outta here. It's twenty nineteen. We're the best baby face he'll dynamic. I've seen in years. They had a blow away away. Match and j white lost after kicking out by the way of the camaguey the first time he aided the second time and got opin with no kneepads. This match was outstanding and the ton hasha cut his ex abor junior. Monosso zouqi match was great. Rest of the show was a bunch of tag egg matches but my god would great main event. Go watch these matches everybody and quit complaining about everything. Enjoy your wrestling enjoy eddie like <hes>. I'm sure there's somebody that is. I can't believe these guys are going off on new japan. Look if you love your style of wrestling more and you just think it's the best. Is this in the whole wide world great. This is what i can tell you <hes> from somebody. That's watched a lotta progressing been around a long time. Nobody does pro wrestling better than new japan pro wrestling. Nobody they as far as what the traditions of of progressing are supposed to be though the rooted in sport you you know and <hes> again. They're not perfect. The referee abuse their tag division. There's a lot of things you can criticize new japan for but they get the big do things right and they get a lot of in fact most of the little things the details they also get right and because of that. It's a coherent product. It's an easy product doc to follow. Everything makes sense even even if you have to give them the benefit of the doubt because something really doesn't make any sense on the surface. Let's just say say for example sonata defeating okada looking like he may have gotten himself another title match for the fall or maybe a copper box then he loses to file a whole lot. Everything is perfect. Hold on that doesn't make any sense mace comp- no sense sense whatsoever and then you see what you saw last night which was a little bit of breath bring breathe breathe back into the bullet club and that's to lesser extent stat but the bigger thing is you've now removed sonata in his claim for the title out of the way because minoru suzuki who defeated okada last night very very clearly now has the easy path to get to and what's most likely going to be the copper box in london but could possibly be king of pro wrestling in october so even that served a purpose to clean it again. You didn't have to do it but it does give you the story line excuse to clear him out of the way and considering that storyline excuses excuses used to be a very important thing in pro wrestling because you know there are rules here and there are stories that need to be followed it plays into everything perfectly so again again you always have to give ghetto the benefit of the doubt not everything is perfect but you see how they keep recycling things and keep everything going and he has had a run now that it has been as impressive as almost anyone's over the years as far as consistency on top of being able to crank out a really impressive product listen. I a love minoru suzuki. You can do whatever you want but if i'm the book her after that sonata okada match the twenty nine minute and forty eight second match or whatever not a wins at the end the places just unglued lasting. I'm thinking is i need to find a way to move this guy out of the way for a while. I look i don't i don't disagree because of how that match went but if that's if that's the reason and that's certainly could possibly be the reason than you know there you go because again again. You have to have minoru. Suzuki necessarily beat okada clean. You know you necessarily need to have to do that to a title match with either. It's just very easy to do it that way and you give yourself the excuse go to the phones. You're on the air what's going on. Hey brian it's b._j. For mayors yup hey <hes> i i i've been able to call and just wanted to congratulate you on the new baby in the book. Oh thank you of course <hes>. I did want to ask you but the next angsty takeover being war games. I was trying to think of you know what they could possibly do. The only thing i could come up with was undisputed era versus imperium from exte- okay eh but that would mean you know colin defend the title at that point. He'd be in this sure that they're doing the war games. Is that like they're doing with me where every defaults wargames whether it needs to be four games or not. I'm pretty sure it was confirmed on one hundred percent but i think it was if they do do it. Is there any idea ideas you have of like were. They may go with it if it's not undisputed verse imperium 'cause like it's gonna be an unbelievable match but at the same time if that's the case obviously coal can't defend the title and then they have to do something else with that but i was just wondering your thoughts on it. I have absolutely no idea what they're gonna do for war games. I wanna thank you very much for the call. I mean here's what here's i don't know. I don't like having to wargames because it's september. I hate that like if it's time to do wargames if you've got a feud no one should ever call this show goin' well. Wargames is coming up. Do we have anything for war games. What well that's a huge problem. Now isn't it if you have something that logically leads to a war games match then do wargames otherwise. Don't do it just for the sake of doing it. I mean shouldn't we have learned that lesson from the main roster and helen his cell and all the times things got screwed up because they had to do certain pay per view to certain time instead of what it meant something something so yeah i don't <hes> i hope that's not next but i guess i'm sure someone will text me at any moment. Tell me whether that's actually next. It's one of those ones where they used is to make fun of t._n._a. Lockdown why matching the cage because we're having show of all cage matches like this doesn't make any sense. It doesn't know what it's very weird it. That's it's one of those things where it doesn't make any sense but for some reason it always was one of their biggest pay per view of the year because fans heard all cage matches inches and they were like oh my god we gotta by the show from a creative point of view. It doesn't sell well. I mean it doesn't help anything at all in. It's like you said if you have a reason to our to to a war games and go ahead and do that but you know a way you can do and still have called defended. The title is we've in other people to the story. I mean you could have the street prophets team with somebody because they're still into it with you know with undisputed era and there's ways you can kind of tie it all together but you're going to have to tie it all together. I don't know if that's really again. I don't know if it's really worth doing just do something else. You can still do a theme for pay per view without having to do the gimmick match. You can still sell the toy with the next replica ring at walmart at christmas time without actually having to do the match. I mean i just again again. I think we're past that. I understand it from a marketing point of you understand why they do these things but like you can still sell that nonsense and have something different for the match itself versus wargames as next. It's been confirmed for chicago and by the way i'm sure they do a lot of things for marketing but this one of those things where i look at the financials goals every quarter like fit to do stupid booking to sell like a literal one drop in the ocean and as far as like merchandise for some of the stuff. It's like get your priorities straight people. I mean come on but that's what they do. I mean maybe the look if it is chicago too so you you know i'm sure they want to do it. Can you top this chicago. Oh here's here's another one by the way so yes. It is confirmed as chicago. It is november so here's something that we gotta. I figure out over the next few months like they gotta take a bunch of shows and they may or may not be going to f s one for two hours coming up in october. There's nothing confirmed but it's certainly the rumor. So how is that going to change taping. How's that going to change booking. How's that gonna change anything. Who's going to be in charge of. It's vince taken over once they get one question. I can a moment rely in l._a. <music> napa know napa auto parts stores of napa auto care centers. Get a twenty five dollars prepaid visa card.

You can just call here today. Eight four four or eleven five four eleven text messages forty five seven eight zero seven five six six. Let's get into some of these right now. This person says it's been hard to catch up with all of this wrestling. Any can't miss matches from this past weekend takeover. Thank you cancel radio shirai. Actually that was it's the best match on the show slightly better than the gargano match with adam cole which by the way we didn't talk about it last night but then he absolutely loved the the main event i felt the main event was the weakest of their three matches doesn't mean it was a bad by any stretch of the imagination but i thought they did too much. I thought it went a little too long. I thought the johnny gargano character was kind of an idiot getting himself purposely disqualified in the first fall of three fall match which by the way when the match was over he was certainly an idiot kost himself match right there but you're shrine kenneth ray was the best w. e. women's match like i can't even remember a better one. It was so good and it's gonna be a long time probably before you see another one that good so those are two matches to check out from the takeover show. They got got to cute with the main event. You know it was just it was a game of kanye top this and they did have you know when the over under bar is set at five stars. You know it's they. They were gonna to try to go all out but they you know they. It was just it was the weapons and just the whole the whole production of it in the double double fall off at the end it just didn't i can understand why people loved especially vinnie. I'm journalism watch weekly or anything like that so it was probably a hell of a spectacle for him but eight just when you see where again and this is all a preference so it's definitely my preference so anybody out there choose how they want to look at it but you know whereas whereas new japan does the game of can you top this and sometimes physically they stay shouldn't do some moves it that some of these guys do but like okada o'connor complete. Can you top this and he doesn't really put himself or his opponent in any real risk. That's kind of what i would have liked more out of gargano. Call i get that this is a blood feud and everything but it's kinda gotten on to the point where it was like with gargano and tomasso i got it because of of how the rivalry in the you know the the legitimate blood feud you'd friendship and all that stuff with this it's like i don't know it's gotten to the point where some of these things where doing stuff again. It's kind of just to do it and it's just not. It's not resonating with me the same way i guess it is for some others but i just the the double fall off in the weapons on the top it just i don't wanna say hokey because that would be insulting to him and i don't wanna insult really anybody because again i get i get what they were trying to do but it just didn't work for me that the to go on a little bit. More of a sporting direction probably would have been better for me. Just that's just me go. Get one of these people. This is the entire text message. Your take hake on annex t takeover is awful. You absolutely know better we talking about. How about you specify a little bit. More by take was absolutely completely fair. You sharai bye and kansas was absolutely awesome and gargano cole was not as good as their first two matches which i believe got five stars and five and a half stars by dave. What's the problem buddy process. Brian thought you might find interesting e._s._p._n. Is now doing their own. Star ratings well well. They're welcome to anybody can do star ratings. He wants point. I mean yeah yeah. I mean it's like everybody's a son of david who was a son of coronado george shadow cameraman remember who came up with the star norm kaizer the hell it was with the stars but like i mean if you think about it what's five stars in a what would four be a be. I mean you can look at it that way. You know excellent very good average good. Would i mean who cares. Everybody's gonna rate something anyway and at this point. Does it really matter who it was as long as you like it you like it. If if you are that insulted the dave meltzer rated a match in a certain way and didn't rank another one that you may have liked who cares. How does that like ruin your entertainment value okay. I got a couple of things person year says it astounds me. There are people out there who hate baraki so great at making everything does look believable as offensive selling his kick council great it could watch him main event every pay per view and that leads me to this same guy correction. Both of your takes were terrible u._n. Kansas weren't the best match and coal gorgon was the best of their matches. See people like this and people that don't get brock where it's like. There's two options here. I'm sure you're a nice nice fell in real life but you're the ignorant or your immediate probably ideal with these people every single day people who are either ignorant or they're idiots every time something gets posted on youtube. I always have to like if you go through the comments. You'll always hear the people this is read it. This is youtube. This is twitter. They they will say brian hates everything. Why does he keep watching like you have to be so stupid to make a comment like like that. I keep watching because i've been doing this for twenty four years and it's my career if i don't like it. I'm going to tell you if i do like it. I'm gonna tell oh yeah. It's my opinion. If you think that my opinion is wrong then quite frankly you're stupid. Everybody has an opinion. You have one. I have one now this whole. Here's the thing when you see stuff on the internet that i say when you see these as video clips okay ninety percent of the time people love to post my rants rarely. Do they bother posting hosting when i rave about something so if you're somebody that goes oh my gosh. Brian hates everything well. You're ignorant or you're. You're stupid. You should pay more attention. You should listen to the things that i say before you rant and rave about me or you should not even bother. I don't believe i cannot believe leave that. I have to explain this to people but i deal with this every day so yes. I am going to call some people stupid and i'm going to call people ignorant because they deserve it. If if they don't want to be called ignorant or stupid they need smarten up or they need to pay attention period next heartache here dummies as someone who was in toronto the last weekend i can confirm that i did not hear a single person arguing over whether becky or in italia had the superior submission move goods well. I would be very worried about that. That's what they claim. Last night as i in here says i've been subscriber for four years now. You always seem to be pretty honest just about what's good and bad. I also love the main event last night. Yes i'm going to try to be as fair as i can. I'm going to try to be as fair as i can. That's it if you happen to be. Somebody who loves won promotion over another and you cannot bear to hear that something in your favorite promotion. I didn't didn't like then. There's plenty of podcasts on the internet. There's plenty of places to go to hear. People talk about wrestling. You probably should go somewhere else. I'm going to give you <unk> honest feedback. Every single time goes for u. A. w. people to quit being ditches just because somebody doesn't like something or somebody critique something about the brand new product doesn't mean anybody wants to fail doesn't mean that they're w._w._e. Stands or that they're too old or they. Don't get it or anything else. Just very simple people are giving their opinion on something new and if they don't hear those things then how will they actually ever know as long as you're being fair about what you're saying and being honest and being troll about got it then you know what mortgage actually ask for so i just please my buddy sky was super china buffet yesterday says i wonder if brent is still sitting sitting at the restaurant counting his gift cards well. I was told by brent that he had visitors coming at ten pm so i'm pretty sure that he went home. I don't know how he got there but he went home. Spurs near says just like you and everybody else brian zero expectations going into rollins versus brock but then made have been of summer slam really turned out to be. I'd you say zero expectations for the match. I thought the match was going to be very good because it's brooke lizard seth rollins but i was flabbergasted by the way that they a book seth rollins. I said they made him look like an absolute geek and i predicted that he was going to be booed and brock is going to be cheered which by the way led to another person unlisted idiots who said this is the dumbest prediction brian has ever had which by the way twenty four years the dumbest prediction sean. I've ever made plenty worse. I was gonna say there have been a thousand words predictions and that one was dead on with that one. This dude came out and he was booed. They looked at him like he was a geek. They cheered brock listener and yes. He turned them at the end because they had as i predicted by by the way a great match. You're never wrong bus. I am wrong. Sometimes i wasn't wrong about that. That's another one every time spent on this show. I was wrong long. I say it all the time. Everybody ignores that usually they only concentrate on when i point out when i was right because they wanna be outraged about something i understand. The internet don't think that guy don't for says more needs to be said about the fiends entrance. It looked amazing. The new version of his themes awesome bray whitehead was the lantern l._e._a._p. Shows up on rosman pickets victim and only russell's them in the big shows. I i know your guys riding high with this. I <music> i. I'm not as bullish as you guys. I liked the new look everything about this is fine. Is this all it's going to be you know. Are we going to have to still have the skits every week. You know it's the bizarre piper's pit. You know i just i everything is i don't know i don't know i don't know how much which i don't trust w._w._e. To keep this thing going for that long. I know it looks fantastic. We'll see if he added anything to his repertoire inside the ring but like you know that was one of the problems with bray wyatt matches after they about five or six minutes. It's like we've. We've kind of seen everything. We know how this is going to go so i don't know i just i really wanna see this play <music> out. It's great to be fired up about something but i don't. I don't trust the same <hes> credit. I give to ghetto as far as getting into the benefit of the doubt. It's hard to give them about about anything. I says brian ashamed people. Don't talk about your rave reviews because a lot of them are actually great like she naito match from last year. Speaking of g wanting one is vegan review. A few matches go versus e._s. goto and shingo. I need to show vinnie. He you want to see a guy getting excited about wrestling. How nobody nobody mentions last night. That vinnie was so excited during the main event of rock leser versus seth rollins when brock spun around by his rib tape that he leaped to his feet. He leaped to his feet. Everybody and he began marching around the house with his arms in the air screaming. Yes he was so excited. Nobody mentions that they only say often. He complains about everything. All he does is complain. Play yes because the internet focus on the negative unless you're subscriber and you you listen everything and then you get to hear the positives and the negatives he made the santino late the the trump that trumpet yes he actually did the marching trumpet was crazy. <hes> yes got was gonna say now. Good s- person says i think the m._v._p. Of summer slam weekend was yoshahara but the title under now l. let her have barn burner matches takeover instead of the concentrated or shayna matches well. I would actually say that. The breakout star of takeover was kansas laurey because everybody knows that lloc rice great and he has been out there being great for a while now but kansas as she said herself. I finally got to be kansas laurey. She was always always gargano girlfriend. She would get mad about things she would show up. At ringside there would be a brawl here there. She actually got to go in with a great wrestler and have a great wrestling match and i thought they stole the show so this was her weakened by us her picture for the saturday night observer radio she deserved it was nicer. Whoa wow with honor skit. It's going to be on her on her tombstone there but like yeah i mean that's the one thing with her is like that's the reason you signed her. In the first place is the fact that she's good and finally got a chance to see it. I know everybody man. She should go up to maine roster. No leave her where she is everybody where they are. They're fine. They're versus. I appreciate your honest. Reviews helps me pick and choose which matches to watch and focus on is it's hard with kids and full-time jobs. Tell me about it. This weekend was tough. No one here said that gorgon coal sucked. I said the other two matches were better. That doesn't mean this was bad. Did the two greatest mansion the history of w me how is saying that this one was the worst of the three like this major burial of takeover and gargano and colts not bunch of buddy murphy's in this world moment observer never live which the the you're listening to wrestling observer live with bryan alvarez and mike separate vivey on the sports sports byline broadcasting network again the show brian alvarez here wrestling observer live mexican wrestling observer dot com. This person says subscriber three years years. I feel like you definitely speak on your mind but i feel sometimes you contradict yourself to prove your point. It makes you come off as disingenuous but it's okay i get it. I've said things they were wrong to try and prove a point as well l. well. This isn't that one listen name name one example like. I don't want you to tell me that i do and i want you. Tell me which one i did. I no one that people people are thinking today. Why does brian get mad at we'll osprey for not selling his knee enough but they don't get mad that seth is doing splashes with busted ribs. Well yes if you look at it on the surface. It seems like i'm not being fair but if you actually think which it's tough on the internet i know filthy tom lawlor. I can ask him on wednesday filthy. Tom lawlor said busted ribs for real and he's headed busted knee for real okay. When you blow out your knee it is one of two points of bipedal locomotion okay. Hey when you don't have a leg you can't walk. You can't run. You can't jump anybody who has ever blown out there nique and tell you this piano locomotion when you pop your rib out what yet hurts like hell but it's not like he can't do anything. It just hurts to do everything so if you're fighting for your life with a bruised or broken rim you can do it okay. If you get your knee destroyed you can't run. You can't jump you can't do space flying tiger drops. It's impossible so in fact it's not the same thing seth rollins having injured ribs and we'll all torn out which by the way i didn't even mention this but we'll osprey less than twenty four hours after he got his knee torn out in that match with tana. He was one hundred percent fine on the show last night. He didn't sell a finger anyway time. What a thank you for listening. Mike is always callers who listeners we'll talk again next time.

E381 I Am Not Good Enough | Are You In Your Feelings Or The Facts?

"This is fifteen minutes of freedom. I'm your host rhinestone. Today's episode is I am not good enough. To them wanna share with you. Some that's come into my awareness over the past few days that. I just feel compelled to share. So it's really really interesting from the seat that I sit in. Right at I'm I'm a big facts guy. I take most clients through somebody learn from Gary j white at wake-up warrior don't off he created or not. But nonetheless as work him to my awareness out of facts, feelings, focus and then fruit. We talk about so much in our household that our daughter Jonah will rattled off all the time when we get in our feelings because thing about it. The majority of us, I know me, specifically potentially Vanu we get focused on how we feel about something. And then we neglect to go back and really look at the facts. And so the feelings that we have determine where we focus our attention to which then alters the fruit or the ultimate gift on the backside. We don't we just don't have that thing. And so when we stop, and we can take a step back to feeling very hurt and feeling very frustrated. I'm feeling these things time out what are the facts about the situation. What I found over and over again with clients and my own life and inside of our household. Is it alters the path of the decisions dribble to make now? This is not an a gate the feelings that I have or that. You would have it's not let the feelings emotional driver for the decision. That's all to me what we desire. I share all this because the facts of my life are so far. We've had I don't I would have to pull it up. But let's say three point four to three point five million downloads on this podcast. That's a factual statement. A factual statement from last year is this podcast with your help has was one of IT tunes. Top new podcast for two thousand eighteen. They put out a release on it whole bunch stuff. Like, it's factual happened. Now, the fact is the number of client hours I've had so far coaching right? If I go back and look inside zoom, and I can't them all up, and I see I'm somewhere in the fourteen hundred fifteen hundred range depending on. This week's calls. The facts are I'm a really phenomenal coach. The facts are every client I've ever worked with his head such massive change in transformations that their life as they exit. Our time together becomes unrecognizable to the person. They once were these are factual. They're facts because I have testimonials and reviews and could hop on the phone with them right now and interview them, and they would share that same sediment. But those never feel like the facts to me. Another fact is I read incessantly. Right. I my wife and daughter laughingly joke out and other Amazon box more books for Ryan I have piles and piles and piles of books and not because books make me better than something or worse than something. Because I am generally curious about the knowledge that is out there. And then applying it to what it is that I do for a living. I don't remember a week that has passed that. I have not read at least two books. All of last year. I made a commitment to read at least one book. So that would be fifty two here. We are the middle of of April. One does call this four months into the year to make it simple. That'd be sixteen weeks. We'll probably another thirty to forty book so far. Maybe hundred books sound like much, but to me it's his phenomenal amount of knowledge. I get to consistently consume. I also have went through trainings and coaching in creditors. And have all these things that I have done. All these things together are factual. But yet I question. In my feelings. If I am actually good enough. Am I good enough to take the next big step into what I would call the big boy league of coaching? And I don't even know who else is in this imaginary big boy league. He's I'm not really comparing myself to someone else would by the nature of the fact that I don't know if I belong somewhere that isn't even identified it limits. My growth, it makes it very uncomfortable. It's like well would why would I do here? Even when a client tells me, like thank you so much for helping me like you've had such an instrumental role in in what we've done together. I resist that I push that back. That's another. No, no. I. I simply was one with my hand on your shoulders we walk through the dark room together. Crawling around on the floor searching for your light. Sure, I might have guided you into this room. I might have had my hat on shoulder. So knew that you were safe at you found the flashlight or the candle or whatever lighting device you feel so inclined to mentally imagine. You found it on the floor. Even when it was scary. You picked it up. You turn it on or you let the match we did what you had to do. Then you found the door the door to that room ends up being when you open it that's your new life, and we found that door, and that I put you through it you did it all I didn't. That's what I say. And I believe that. But what I also believe. Is the fact that all the books all the training and all the wraps and all the time under tension and all the everything else that I pour into this. I can know inside my soul. The actually had a had a role to play in this. But I instantly talk myself down as oh, I played a minor part. I share this because. You might be feeling sometimes like you're not enough. You might question. Why you were doing what you were doing? Mike question like I wanted. Why is my partner wise my wife still with me? Do I really deserve the things that I have. And that feedback loop that vicious cycle that we get an of questioning are worth only limits the growth that we're able to experience and the growth that we're able to then experience with others. I made mention Ida lunch meeting earlier this week with a incredible man here in Columbus, Ohio. John robinson. And John is someone that I have fought on social media for more times than I can count probably two two and a half. Maybe even three years. I had no idea. He lived in Columbus. I had no idea he was had ever read anything from gear Jay white or new Ryan McClure or had done any of the things that he had done. I know this now after having a meal with him. A while back. He said, hey love to get together for with you for a bite for lunch. I'm like what? Sure. But how in Columbus and my mind. No one is in Columbus was. Yeah. I'm over in Westerville. That's a suburb much like the suburb. I live in that's about twenty miles from where I'm at. We go back and forth falls off the radar have to schedule. An reschedule. There's some things that come up in my life. Then we finally have lunch. We're just getting to know each other. This thing I'm not selling him anything and he's not selling anything. It's literally just two men getting gathered have a bite and just talk. And eventually the container gets opened where he feels comfortable or compelled to share with me. Some truth about how he views my life. Now, admittedly, I had asked him for some help. He's got some hypnotherapy degrees and some advanced psychology studying, so we we had some very interesting and powerful conversations. But. I set up framework because he comes into this conversation. Shares of me look like you don't really know how to be happy. You're still not really getting into your heart that much. You're still not owning how great you really are. And it's based off the fact of being afraid to be a little polarizing because people don't know how to handle that. And he shares that with me somewhat unsolicited, but very very welcomed. And it is like a dagger right into my stomach. But the type of dagger that when it peers your skin at hurts for a moment, and then feels warm and good like there's pain associated in the moment of like, how dare he how this hurts into. You know, what he's exactly right? So what do we do about it? I presents me with some some different things. One of which is what I'm essentially going through right now in this moment. Understanding in saying and pronouncing backed by facts, I am fucking elite at coaching. What I know about the human body biohacking psychology. Neuro plasticity neural linguistics marketing sales direct response, Email campaigns, business automation. Relationships. And a plethora of other things are second to none. I have not met someone else yet. That is as well versed across all of those platforms. As I am combined. I say that because I care about it and more than I care about anything else. The books. I read the courses, right? These all stack up on top of each other that put me in a position to know that I am elite knowing that I'm not resting on my laurels and still expanding my capacity on a daily basis. That's the first little side note. That conversation was Monday. I have been conscientiously not being on my cell phone on the way into the office or the way home. Other than to tell my wife. I'm on my way, I've been using that time to decompress and to dial back into what makes me who. I am which inevitably has been having me question over and over again, who am I really? I have found that my consistent need to hop on phone calls had still yet been to sedate away from answering my own questions about who am I really in. What is my greatness and doing this for the right reasons? Right. I I was filling those voids with some noise. I know that based off now being in silence for while. And so I have a conversation on the way home just last evening with my good friend, Bryce, Bryce Prescott. You've heard me. Mention name many times has got to great podcasts drop the mic. And the daily rule. Both incredible podcast incurred you listen to if you're not already prices, an amazing, man. But we're talking we're going back and forth. General catch up. It's been five six seven days, maybe even longer and eventually get to the point of me looking for new office space. We're to the point our evolution as an organization where it's time to change locations somewhat off time-saving someone off general location, something new needs and requirements. Something the fact of I want my own fitness center associated with the office space. I can't really explain why. But has been something that's called me for so long. It just gonna bring me joy. So I I want it. I'm sharing this with Bryce said, you know, there's spot number one. We're looking at and it's fifteen hundred bucks a month. Spot number two were looking at it's to Reynold. Oh, man. That's nice as upgrades downgrade. Right. The normal questions. You might even be asking. Right. Alec. Why? Where what's the difference? More space less base. This is really. All bets are off. There's one place that's very scenic. Overlooks a pretty good size river in body of water here in Columbus. It Jetsons out over over this body of water to glass office. It's multi-tiered. It's beautiful. But it's like thirty five hundred bucks a month. Just probably gonna get the twelve hundred month one. And he listens as a good friend would. And he stops and says. Would you be open to considering something I said web -solutely? If you're really compelled to get the more expensive one wouldn't you just then show up and be happier inside that workspace, and then probably produce at a level that higher than the difference in rent. What are you going to give yourself permission are living the life like you're producing it? Prices words, not mine. Which then spins into him saying, look, I don't get jealous about many things. He does I can't really say that. I'm jealous per se. What I can say is I'm incredibly proud and honored to see just how much you have grown at hope rapid the podcast grown, and how incredibly scaled your businesses become how many clients you're helping and serving he was nothing. Short of miraculous. You're doing things that no one else I've ever seen be able to do. His words. And he saying this to me as I'm sitting outside of the twenty five hundred dollar months base waiting for the rotated to come. So I can look at it. And it's hitting me. He's like look, right. You want to emulate you want to be the Tony Robbins? Right. That's that's the gold standard for me. That's the man that I'm chasing. He goes at what point did Tony Robbins? But he traveled decide to stay in the thousand dollar room versus three hundred dollar room. Just for the experience. And what is that experience? Open up inside of you when you realize you can do it nothing goes differently in your life. Because I've had nothing before because I have truly been completely flat fucking broke. Because my truck out repossessed from outside the building I was in front of because I had an almost negative Bank account balance because I've experienced this. I just don't spend money on myself. Which ultimately comes down to conversation of lack? Then peel that back even more than comes back to a conversation of not being good enough and pull that back even more and haven't come down new conversation of. Would if nobody likes me. What if I can't get another client would if I went six months, and we didn't generate any income at all. Now, those are my feelings as I pull back to the facts that could not happen. Got a waiting list of people that are asking to work with me, which is a blessed place to be in so much that I've created a group training. We're doing all types of different softer facilitate more people and to create automated systems and processes so that value can be added without just being a hour by hour conversation. It's not possible. And even if it is possible, like the spiritual side of me knows there's a lesson that I needed to learn in that moment. So I should as ride that wave. Any essentially says the end of the phone call like when you gonna realize just how good you really are. Men. Ship. That would just that. It was like that that secondary punch that same wound that John opened up just four days earlier. Like, well, if someone that knows me incredibly wellish sharing this me and someone that's watch me from afar, but. Apparently knows me very well as saying this to me. It's probably time. I just start owning it. And so I have to start owning it. And I know in owning it it's a polarizing conversation for me to say on a leak coaches. How could he say that? Right. That's that's the old version of me how how could someone be so egotistical say that? Well, it's not egotistical factual. I produce ended a ridiculously high level and no more about more things than most people ever will. And I'm nowhere close to learning. All the things I'm going to. Never gonna stop beating that exact because that is who I am. And there's a chance. The you to have that same genius in you. And that genius something you push away that you just don't talk about that you downplay yourself, you don't let anybody know really what you are. I don't care if it's video games. I don't care if it's making craft beer. I don't care if it's growing flowers. You have something that when you look you are blessed beyond belief and people look into how did you do that? I could never do that. How did you pull that off? It's okay to own that. It's not only. Okay. If I listened to the men that are close to me, it's expected. If I listened to myself in the way that I coach my clients that's expected. So the fact of the conversation your head or in my head right on even a project this on you the conversation. My head of I am not good enough. This is all going to break one day. These things are going to come to fruition. I'm never going to have everything that I want is all garbage. Because I one hundred and fifty percent will. I know this because John in hypnotherapy setting in session asked me to recall times in my life in which I failed. And I sat there and scratch my head. I was projecting. These thoughts onto this virtual movie screen right him. My current version is sitting in a chair and movie theater seeing his own life on screen while another version of me is looking down at me in the movie theater from up on the balcony. And I'm seeing this from what is at the third or fourth perspective, right? All my mind's eye, and he's instructed me to see when things have went badly on that screen. And the screen is Blake. Like the screen has no images. I miss manage money, which was a failure which was bad, but it was only momentary failure. Because it taught me how to manage money now. And so I went to worry about that again. So it was nothing. The things that happened in the past of businesses and x y and z shortcomings, those weren't failures those were lessons. But I have let part of those still ingrain deep enough into my subconscious to determine how good I think, I am and how worthy I think. I am going forward. Do not allow myself to experience a full abundance in front of me every day. And so today. That has the stop. And it must stop here. And it must stop now. And that stopped by me signing off on the podcast with a new handle. So that I can in grain into my subconscious and into my operating system what I actually believe myself to be. Saw end things with. I'm gonna have to figure this out. Right. I don't have any notes written down. But something along the lines of. This is Ryan idell the elite optimization coach encouraging you to go out and get shit done.

What up! Everybody welcome to another episode of the corner. PODCAST Kell, dance, be here with the old man. entrees hail back for another week. And kicking it off with some pro wrestling, talk guys you. We went on Thursday. Plenty to talk about. Today's going to be jam packed. We're talking news pan impact which we rarely talk about, but got to give it its Sean Talking Aid W. The last night fighter fast annex tease last night of great American Bash and previewing extreme rules horror show. Oh, on this one episode, so you guys are in for a lot of wrestling, but first. dray. We didn't talk about this the other day, because made it a point to hold off until Jada, did her little bringing herself to the table, read table talk. And, I'm glad we didn't touch on because now. We have this whole idea of what happened. I will start by saying this. August are seen in the wrong. Yes That's it loose lips sink ships I don't I can't cosign that. I can't do it. yeah, I guess where we can start. Cracked Claw area. Things interesting one because. Of what Jada said it was his mental issue now, obviously those listening to this show. I'm sure you've heard about this August I'll see in this, but we angelie own, so she had a release it. We Jada Pinkett Smith with Wilson's blessing and should went haywire so Jada Pinkett finally did table talk with yourself and brought along for the ride In one of the. It was uncomfortable to watch I'll say that because. I couldn't decipher who was comfortable. More comfortable talking and it looks like will was really having a hard time with this. Even though he was wearing the face, it was like yeah do. You WanNA revisit. To keep from crying, yes, so the August Alsina thing. I mean. You can he was in the wrong, but the other side of this is. Jay The kind of preyed upon this man. In a way with the mental health issues that seems like she acknowledges he had. And, if you're aware of this, and you decide to be entangled, which is they? They've murdered this word like twenty four hours entanglement. Which is I mean? It was a weasley way for for Zeta to address shit to say like. fucking right? Like just say you were in a relationship while you were separated. Whatever entanglement not? Fair, he could have been in a relationship in she not in that same relationship. I've seen that happen. It doesn't matter. Entanglement is ridiculous, but you know some people think that relationship they are not but the point. The point I'm making is like she was. Entangled? In she was in her cougar face because August a young dude. And if he has mental health issues and you. Had this release it to get your rocks off ordeal. Wanted or whatever it was that you need it. And you can't be all that surprised. He said something right at a certain point, because maybe like you were just kind of alluding to. Maybe he really wasn't a relationship, maybe being who he was where he was at in life. With somebody probably grew up watching on TV. And was like Oh shit. I'm a relationship. Jane is like No. You're not I'm just trying to get my rocks off so hurt and he went to Angela he and I mean to me there was the problem is is. I don't know you handle public. What do you expect this is going to happen? But I don't think he thought about it that far. It was something that he's been holding onto for. The last few years and he just decided to speak on it. I don't think it had anything at first I was like. He's got album coming out. Maybe he's doing the yet, maybe like a marketing plan, but I don't think that these here. Something to get off his chest and he decided to do it on a public form which I frown upon I wouldn't have done it, but then also. Mess Jay too old for this shit I mean he's a young do with mental health issues. It feels like like imagine if the roles were reversed, and this will Smith doing this a twenty five year, old girl, who supposedly has mental health issues and she went in announced his. We will be looking at this situation all different completely different. It. Especially when she said we welcomed in our home like our family him, you know the the kids befriended him. I guess a little weird. Because yeah, we'll would have done this to. Twenty probably one year old at the time. Friend that was in their home in. Entrusted them. It looked like he was a predator. Imagine if this was summer Walker Ari Lennox they will. Smith was doing this to. Lennox. Who's always on instagram? Saying some wild shit she'd like comes out and says something we'd be looking at will. He was the worst human being the world. It is a weird double standard on how men and women. Like, we look at these situations because. A lot of people made fun of Will Smith. And but if it was Jada Pinkett. Feel, sorry for. And, there's nothing make fun of will about like. The original comment was will gave me his blessing. And people took that ran with it. I think one thing that came of the Red Table. Talk was one. We were separated as someone like myself. WHO's been separated before getting divorced separated for three years? So I understand like how an a separation works, many people don't have adult relationships to understand these things. No, it. It's a whole different long. Ask Talk about how marriage works and how a failing marriage works. So, that's a whole different thing that people can't comprehend so maybe August I am. Putting puzzle pieces together here, but it seems as though August may felt uncomfortable at a point in time broached the subject with will. And it was like we are separated. She do ever fuck she wants to do. That is not giving me his blessing. That is is not a my damn business. Two very different things can be interpreted into very different ways. So, he's like Oh. Oh, well you know me and J., Hook. Okay cool congrats like we're separated. Doing wants. Also Matte No I. Don't give a fuck what she's doing. Oh we'll give me his blessed. No, I just told you go foot what she's doing. Who knows what what was doing? Who knows and that's the real crazy part about this is yes. You gotta be have a certain level of maturity to have these conversations because I like I'm watching people just saying the wilder stuff on social media. I can tell you having been married, or if you have been married, you have very long like. This situation. Is Complicated because if they were indeed separated, Light Jada and will have said on this table. Talk and Jada chose to do whatever she wanted to, and well was doing whatever it is, he wanted to do which we don't know what that is. I. Mean the bigger. The big issue is like I mean I. Don't know it's hard to say because for me. It's like why we care so much like the the level of caring about this, but it's hard because this liberties, and that's why people care you and they've done a good job of wearing the facade of a good healthy relationship for so long, so this first sign of of a mess comes up. And now everybody's scrambling trying to figure it out all. They have an open marriage so that everybody's trying to put these pieces together. The thing that I feel like. Jada. I say that she did wrong. If there was anything if you were trying to keep people out of your business as posting on August, I've seen all over social media. Like the take pictures with him in public. Well, that's easy to say. After the fact again. When you are separated. There's very long periods of time. Were you think you're not going to get back together? No, I, agree but. I'm saying in the sense of if the goal was to keep people out of your business. Taking pictures with somebody that you're boning when people don't know that you're separated, is going to eventually come back around, but that's the last thing on your mind that well like when you're a celebrity is different. It's almost. Like I say if it's about nature I'm just saying each. Being your business if you care if you don't care, do whatever you want but if Yo- if she saw, will if if she saw well, what a bad one! Issue just like. Not. Fuck we'll just next bad one on instagram where she thinks he's tapping something. Oh word. So, my quiet little secret is about to be flaunted. 'cause I'm hitting. Youngsters twenty years younger than me. And he's armed based on. Your Ego comes into play that, but that's what I'm sure. She regrets it now. Someone's moment she gets the past like a mostly like when you are celebrities, celebrity is a business in itself, and it's feel like they treated. That way is the reason why nobody knew they were separated because they don't want anybody in their business, they want anybody not be separated. Their business was as happy marriage with these two kids. God knows with those to have thought about with this whole situation, but that's the facade the put forth. If you don't want people in Your Business, you have to move silently and his heart. Will your celebrity to do that? It's almost impossible. But. If you if you don't care and he's heavy, he's got Kinda Shrug your shoulders, but they care to a degree which is widely table talk, which is almost like a PR moment in itself the try to clean this up. Because it's messy. It's messy and there's nothing they can really do about it now because look if we'll. Did anything guess what we don't know about it. We, don't we have no idea if he did anything, we don't have a clue. He didn't have loosened she did. August going to be in a loose end is the it is. The is the most. It's on par with twenty twenty 'cause. Usually it'd be the do that. Has the Lou centers like oh? Shit here? She Com. No, it was a dude who's art. dodos another celebrity. You like Sea Level D. level, but he was still guy in the public eye. That shit was gonNA. Come back around somehow some way, but if again if we'll did anything if we'll had any extracurricular relationships are anything. We knew nothing about it. We didn't even see pictures with other women. There is nothing. Don't you have to have an NDA or something like adapt point if you're that level of slur, not really because if you're in like if you're in public data, was taking pictures at events with Augustine. Wrestle I'm saying it wasn't like they were just like hanging out at some restaurant. Do they were at events in the public and people didn't really think nothing of it all because celebrities are coups, people that just happens, but now when you put it all together like Damn, you guys are hiding in in public you hiding in plain sight. But he was a loosened. Off Associated Loosen that she did not tie and I guarantee you that. However they split was not on good terms. No that should never ends on good terms. Like she can say whatever she wants. There's there's no way they split that. and Go back to your husband without some feelings there. Because, there's I mean August hinters e enter. He loved her with everything. Is what he said. Which means. He thought he was enough for her. He was in deep. Yeah, and then he found out. You know. Life hit them fast that he wasn't will Smith. Like he's just like Yeah, don't we have something? Else for my wife the other day about issues like he probably thought like you know she's GonNa leave the family for him. But. No, when he came down to like no, we still have a chance to be a family that we're. We're good. We're Rockin but I'm not leaving. My family for you. And a lot of people have that. I don't WanNa. Say It's a misconception. Because maybe when you're in the thick of it, it seems like a reality. But Shit James's. And you know three two years of phase. And Yvonne gated fling isn't seventeen twenty years of marriage. So yeah, he came out and. Again that is the crux of separation. People it's there's casualties of war. Sometimes, it's separations. Now separated from my first wife I shit I remember again I moved out and a whole nother girlfriend. When my first wife sabotage that. Just exquisitely by the way. That she went up in flames, and then I had no one, and then my ex wife decide to tell me. While still separated by Gary while I'm hooking up with this guy who was working with the whole time. For like years, and this is not even other guy she up with some other guy at her job. And I was like. What are you telling me this for? Now I was like okay. We're separated. I was tight for like two days. We're separating it will want. And then I had a year remember. But none of that when he came to the end of it if we decided to get back together I, think we hit my point like two years after that world like are we getting back together or getting divorced like shit? Get off the pot. And we decided to get a divorce, and it was like perfect cool, but it's like that guy, but now may espn that guy going and be Oh and I'm not even will Smith fucking famous at all, but was like that guy. Telling people around town might go you. Oh, Look Chaldean UPN. I slept with his wife. I like what kind of stupid she would that be like yet? Technically, she was my wife, but we weren't fucking with each other like that. We were separated. Like I don't know what it lends itself to August Ossete. Granted maybe some form of therapy, and to get off his chest like you said, but what is this boosting? What Kudos to be like high slept with? Wife I stopped with Jada. And he's complaining. 'cause it cost him opportunities. This is going to gain him any opportunities. I don't know it's council. Motherfucker, do Mike. Like again like working in the industry for as long as I have, and still have friends in the industry, and still have like I have friends that were stranded up becoming super famous as friends, and ended up becoming not so famous and fell off, and they were popping at one time. And the watch how people manage their egos through all of this? Like somebody like August al-Sina, you couldn't told him when he had I love it. That the end was near. You couldn't have told him that you us all like that's it buddy? It's a wrap this is it? This is your moment. Suck it up. They don't know it. Thought. He was going to be Chris. Brown Trey Songz yet. They're still running and he's. Doubt he's out. You'll say Jay holiday. Remember Jay holiday. Had Been. Figured out the dream rolling was like. This ain't you is him. We're out in August. I've is one of those act like he's an individual who? Like. Had A a hit and I'm sure. He thought it could've took off for him, but he didn't. So now it's like you waddling between these two worlds a world where you need to go drive uber in a world where you think you might be one hit away from making. It's tough place I've seen celebrities deal with this. It's a tough place to be because it's so hard to tell them. You. It's over. It's so hard to tell him that. The people that make it are the ones that you are going to make it, so he looks. Like he's been, and that's the worst part. Celebrities who are I'm not gonNA say broke pro because there are some that are really broke some that are. Struggling with is still at events with select other celebrities so now they're sizing each other up to figure out how successful they are, so August is in a situation. Where got hit song he's. He feels like he's on the cusp. He makes a relationship with Jada Pinkett Smith. And, he in his mind is probably I'm coming back. I'm going to be back. His whole world has been taken out from under him. Now, he doesn't have Jada Pinkett Smith. He has no songs. He has nothing. So, I'm sure whatever it was rocketing his head. He was going to get this off my chest. I don't think he was rethinking their heart, because he still has relationships in the industry, which leads him to Angelie was I feel like in this off my chest and he tells me and it's like. Every we're all wondering. Why, but I'm sure it was complicated in his head. He was just like you're gotta say this I. Don't know what it's going to mean. Lead to I want people to know my story and what's going on wherever I've been? And what was? But the last. The sharing all do non forum. I mean I'd be surprised if he had another hit song. Yeah me too like. I. Can add the hit song without voicing this, but like you said if he had to get off his chest. I believe that's what therapy and therapist or for. Doing this a public forum says something very different to me. It is not like his platform because I got a lot of wild shit on this podcast. But, it's my podcast like I'm not going anywhere and like asking someone for me to be on their platform to voice my opinion. Or to say I, slept like what? It's very weird to me and it seems like almost to the point where he blames her and them for his failures. At absolute there, it is you kind of mentioned right the reason why he wanted to get this off his chest because. He has nowhere else to go. And he's still like semi famous and. People he thinks like I mean you never know like I? Say this all the time. I don't know people listening shit like you never really know how many people check for you care for you. look for you. Don't know, so. He felt like. Whatever? Your situation was wasn't entirely his fault that he got wrapped up in some shit. and. It's really hard when you're doing that. the spongebob where you're like staring out the window and Jaden. Willard running around having fun and you're sitting there like what the fuck? You know maybe I. Don't know if he necessarily wanted you know everybody always says yeah. I still got love for them. It's usually means like I. Really don't, but I'm just saying this to save face, and that might have been what it was like He. Did it. I hate that bitch. That's probably what he was thinking because it kind of ruined him because he was really. In deep with her, and she really was not. She. Really was not so. He felt like he had to say this to get it off his chest so. I can see where this is. Why I say it was raw from to do on a public forum because I don't know what he was trying to gain out of it, if anything, but if it was just kind of this thing where he felt like I gotta get this off, my chest consoles to motherfuckers Iras clean as you think they are. That's what it felt like to me. Yeah that's. That's a whole different level despite, but then he just in. Actuality propagate her. The highest rated episode cheese ever had. Yeah, but I mean the bringing down that couple I mean. That strategy again. It's one of those situations where you really don't know the outcome. He just wanted to light the fuse. Because he felt like he was hurt. He's hurt duties hurt. Men's swimming. Hurt. You think irrational. You do irrational she. When you think you're being rational, you look like some dumb shit i. just that's probably what he's doing like. Why did I do this too late now? Camp Toothpaste back in the two is out. and. They know more. You're out. No, no, no, no, so. blackballed before. If, they really wanted to put the pressure on, but now it's like. If you were dwindling. There's no reason for someone to fuck with you anyway. So it's, it's weird I. don't see the benefits for him at all. And then you look at it though and you you touched on him. Like why do people care so much? I'm not sure I don't I don't know why people were shot. By this cause much like pro wrestling industry, which we're GONNA talk about here in a second and pro wrestling in general. A lot people sleep with a lot of people. Married, non married engaged couples. I mean we its paging, Xavier Woods like. That Shit's the music industry. People are smashing. Other people's married, asked husbands and wives. The the circle is so small. Like all these video vixen from back in the day, they dated eight of these guys. So I'm not surprised. There's like. Jada hooked up with August years lower proximity. US Hot for the moment. They saw each other yet access she had access to. She's not a guarantee. She's not the only wife smashing somebody. No! I want to correct you know one thing. It's not even entertaining business. That's life. That's true. To be. Call centers all the time. It's it's life like. I've said I've been in this industry for a long time. Amid a lot of people, you know been around a lot of things and I know people who grew up where I grew up. That are smashing more women than celebrities. Might, not be the same quality. But they're out there doing it happens. I know. Relentlessly cheat on their wives and husbands. I know people that do this all the time. Entertainment is a bigger. A bigger fish bowl everybody to look at whereas in your little city. It's like you know the law proximity. What's on your block? And there's people there, and if you choose to do so, people are going to dabble. That's why when when I see this like. You know people I mean. Yes. The industry is hard. I'll be the first one saying I'm married now. I've been in this business for a long time, and it's hard. It does put a strain traveling. You know, play evinced. You gotta be at the people you may. It's difficult. The Shit is not easy, but I've seen like marriages. Get ruined for this. Oh Yeah, over a dice game like the Shit is real. Things fall apart so when this happened. You know I wasn't shot. It's the people that have this idea that that marriage is never failed. Willing Jada. Never believe everything you see on TV. We'll look at them all time and I always do this is me. I'm not the person that goes out of their marriage fucked up I'll do that. I just go I. Don't know I honestly don't know, and I'm cool. We're not known and I. Don't want to pass judgment on what I think. It is unless I know something intimately, but if I don't I. Don't know you know what I don't know I don't. So. Came, when I was like okay? And then as the days progress, y'all talking about this shit, all right I guess. At some point. Pushing for as long as possible because we were just. Like, okay, let's get a whole story, so we could talk about this because he had the speculation of it, it doesn't. It doesn't surprise you. You say that Shit though later, not shocked I'm just something. I'm never surprised. I'm appalled. There you go! That's exactly what this one is just like. You're not surprised when these things come out like. Oh, so a celebrity was smashing another celebrity while married. shed. Like you your year bt in New York. I'm sorry you seem way craziest. Men. And that's. That's when you're really. When you're in the culture, and you gotta go out for work every night in your around and Oh. If people traveled on the road with the WWE for three months the shit that they would see. Is Mind Bogg-. Like when you're immersed in any Colton like you said I win, it's even the smallest small my wife to this day. Her cousins always call her or assistance. Call and be like guess was happening. A Henderson Henderson the people. Listening is like the suburb of Las Vegas where my wife grew up. But no one ever leaves there. That's a bubble. So you live in Henderson. You Board Henderson Henderson Diners. None of my wife's family is ever moved from Henderson which is crazy or mom lives in Germany now. So I think everyone else is like Las Vegas entry, so they still have like. fucking crazy. Just. Dow Novella style stories going on in Anders Flight Twenty, years where it's like Yo- I cheat on my husband with this guy. Then we both had children with you know within our marriages in our children are dating and talking to him again on the low, but then his wife is smashing this to like that. She's crazy I sit back. I'm like yo shade his Wi-. Like that small town, just proximity everywhere has this. Is more interesting when celebrities avid I guess. I. You know who they are. That's all yet that. Is is horb putting celebrities on a pedestal. Because I meant too many of them. Tutsi Stan just how flawed they are as people. And not in a bad way. But I mean Ito. You just see that everyone is flawed, but you see that like. I'm not putting anyone pedestal because I've seen the highest of highs of celebrities and know how fucked up there on a day to day. So everyone is fucked up. The switchgear pro wrestling, no, before we take our break and talking about a pedestal. We had to start or pro wrestling. Talk with this. I am guilty dray of pudding. New Japan pro wrestling on that pedestal. HOW PEOPLE SAY Bay goals or couple goals, and all this shit about what Sierra Russell Wilson will and Jada. Of the fuck else they say about that was new Japan me. and Pro Wrestling High said you know what I criticize. An exterior criticize wwe. Criticize Aws, but new Japan Never Fox. I've said this for so long. They're the constant. dray! They have fallen off the pedestal. And it's the first time. First Time I can't see a defense for something. They get booked and when I say this. Hopefully, you guys watched it. New Japan Dominion happened over the weekend New Japan Cup finished. Dominion went straight into that we talked about a lot of stuff. New Japan Cup last wrestling episode, but we left short of the semi finals so. To wrap this up real quick. Synopsis and you can fill in the holes right after I'm done. semifinals. Evil Nada was going to win evil wins. He was going to lose. Even go to the finals. It's him versus. In the finals okay. Okada's GonNa Win Duh rematch wrestle kingdom. Get his back, or you know just champs for title game. NOPE We get evil beating Okada. then. Okay, that gives them. Automatic title shot against eight don't Naito comes out. Goes for the Lbj fist-bump. Evil gives him the two suites. Evil joins bullet. Club beats our Naito. Okay, send up dominion. Many comes no way that this means maybe we a false finish, which barely ever happens new Japan. But maybe there's shenanigans. He just joined bullet club. They'll beat up NATO setting up something for the summer. All Right? We're going into this. And then the worst worst booking decisions I can think of. Evil! Offsets Naito, who never had a successful title defense right? Oh. Can you have one before the pen Tommy? Kenneth! Yes so, you had what he be cancer, but loses to evil. For both titles, not one. I would have been okay if this was an intercontinental match or maybe he just kept that one. No lost both belts. To Evil. And Evil Rides out is the top of the bullet club. I don't get it. Yeah, we'll run down the rest of the show because this was a good show until this match. First things first. Evil versus Naito sought. As! Good as a match, it was not a good match, and I can't figure out who to blame him. Okada wasn't greeting. Well. A lot of the blame in my opinion goes to how nights or handled his character in this match. I was. Stumped as to somebody that you brought into allied. Jay gave him the name evil. That's your dog. Right turns on you and joins bully. Club twenty four hours. Forty eight hours earlier. Right. And now he's challenging you for both of your titles like the seeds were planted well, who was doing? He'll shit the entire way even to his own party. Like the Sonata should. I was like. I think about it. I think joint bullet club. It never crossed my mind. I just thought they were maybe be some kind of conflict. Where even goes too far? Didn't think he would just join a bullet club, but fast forward to this match, and this is Matt Sucks there was no emotion from NATO in this match. For, somebody who just turned on you after all these years of Jay, and you've just won the title and he now. He's challenging you your shit that you work this hard to get. And did this underhand way. There was no fire Naito. He wrestled this like a using wrestler Tranquil Mitch and I just didn't understand how he can wrestle like that. After being turned on, so that bothered me, there was no fire in this match. There was like segments where it was like it was heating up well for the most part this was. Don't match then Mondays. Thing is I'm wondering how the injuries are mounting up on HBO. Some matches you completely gets off. He's amazing like the Okada Imagine Wrestle Kingdom. This batch just felt like slow. And I can't even one hundred percent evil, because had some really good matches. So the match sucked like this match was not good, and the crazy part is like you look at this. Look this card on paper like I'm new. Shingo, show, we're GONNA. Tear it down. The tag match on the other hand I was like. Tight Jeans Junior. This could be all right. That was a really good tag match with a really good finish, even though the like the when they call it, the golden aces bottles I love how they torture ton high. She got the. They made the sexy between your little piece, and we're back in the spot now. Where I was like well, what did he do that? Because we keep asking ourselves this question every few months, but then we get to the main event and I'm like well. You can't just take tiles NATO already. But he did. And Dick Togo is now the club. Yes, legendary Dick. Togo was fifty years old, he he can still go wrestle snuggie stiff as hell, and now he's in the club. So. If anybody's keeping track. The book club was created to be a Guishan faction, which was non-japanese. Wrestlers. But because of the travel restrictions, none of those guys are here. So they now they have to. Kind of book the Bullet Club with like this new facts, so here's my opinion of what. I think. Because of the travel restrictions Gaito was like well what there was a plant probably have either turn a NATO at some point. But I feel like the head to Russia because there's no juice for the bullet club right now. There's NO J. White. There's no G. D. Like we can't. No Bad luck folly! There's nobody they had the bullet club's nothing. Except for issue, Maury and he schwartz junior heavyweight, but he's Buffet Shit. But Now, he's too small. He's still sure it's tiny, but he's. Super Bowl. It's weird. It's weird, both but so I feel like it was like all right cool. We're GONNA. pull the trigger on this, but the other issue with this is. This was like that home. Roman reigns residual or the Charlie flair residual where they had to protect at all costs couldn't have Okada lose again tonight. Oh I. Think that's where this all really started. There was like Oh. We're going to do this final. We can't do Okada and night so again nights already beaten medium cleaning the sheet. It'll hurt him because he's our. He's top dog. He can't lose twice clean, so we're GONNA put this position and going to run this angle because the bullet club needs members, and we're going to run this thing that we're going to do and now eagles in the bullet club with Dick. Togo and yeah. But no, this makes no sense. Way Him winning the next night it was. It was bad like this was bad. It was bad because this was another like I think we say this every week. The Room! We've been waiting for you to get this tiling finally got it. And even in his crowning moment you got jumped. By kanter. And, but then he still beat cancer, and then he drops the tile both titles immediately. At hasn't even been. It's been seven months, and you can't say seven months because for four months. Nothing was happening. So nights is now titles to his former stablemate, and just kind of rolls out the ring, and then Takahashi has all the fire that NATO didn't have when he calls out evil. Takashi runs down. Make same as yelling being crazy Takahashi. Any challenges evil and I'm like why did I so? I like that he's got. beat up the losses. Goddamn tons. This was this was booking hell. This is one of those things where it was a byproduct of the quarantine. I mean the Corona virus. Like why this happened, but this was just the wrong decision that they found another way to do this. They really could have. This was bad. Disrespect for a night, so there's. If you don't have a deep roster right now. Because the coronavirus virus because it travel restrictions. Why not keep belt on a guy practical? You're trying to establish. As a main guy took him seven years to get it. He dropped the belt and what amounts to three months. The makes no sense. The only thing that could be remotely defensible and it's not. This was bad booking. This is like W E bag. This was bad. It's like Jack Swagger win title. Someone said so. It was like you know. This is the equivalent of Otis cashing money in the bank winning like this. then. The response to that was no. This is like. Tucker cashing in and win now's like could Sonata. Was The guy supposed to get pushed? Yeah, yes, this was Sonata. I agree evil yet it's I. Don't know man like evils, a good wrestler and he's had some really good matches, but I can't seem as leader of anything. and. There was like really no bill. The other thing because it's like he turned on him. Two nights ago. We rolled right into the tunnel. Mentioned just takes title off. So the only the all the excuse that I could give them as if they were to have nights ago. Like allstone cold shit in the better. Bet at the chase, even then because g one client well since he wants me pushback, but Even then you're looking at this like. God Damn. You might as well just I mean. He's a double town. But he made history and dropped the bills immediately, which means she's a blip on the radar and I've seen people like they wouldn't treated like then. Wb Yeah that that's neither here, nor there is that Gaito just made a terrible booking decision with NATO like this was bad and why keep brought up the match itself? Has, materials like if there are lingering injuries when Naito. Then waited too long to pull the trigger. Because maybe he can't be what he wants was. Like, he was hot for a couple of years so hot and it's. Got The title, and now it's like obviously krona, virus, monkey, wrench, and thing but man. It could have found a better way to do this evil in the bullet club like look, I know they want to keep the bully club alive, but this is going to be really strange. Travel restrictions are lifted. Jay White comes back and Thomas Gun talk lower. Come back ballot. Folly comes back and they're like, and now they look like the n w all with like when had got down? And Jerry. S Too much I don't know man. Data's painted himself into a corner and I have to see how he gets himself out of this is this was not good? Because we're so used to them booking. and making sense of things a year down the road two years down the road right. This is the first time I think I can see them book for the moment. And just say we need something now. And I. I don't know I don't. I don't see. I don't see how this plays out in the benefit of anyone, even evil right like Jay White winning the title I didn't like that. Very much either, but I got it and it panned out. I don't think evil. Is that guy? No. I mean I. Don't I again? I don't know how they can make this work. Because eventually travel restrictions, GonNa and aspect is going to be back. All the towns eventually gonNA come back. And they're gonNA come back to this issue. which is like confusing? Yeah, the the roster is depleted, but this was not the move to make as the rest of the show like I said Shingling Show Oh, my God Those sweat a hell of a match. I think you know like a Lotta great things that pro wrestling happen by accident. And now the JOE was hurt for a year. They're gonNA have to drop those junior heavyweight titles, but if you look at show, he no longer really looks like a junior heavyweight. Anyway like he's getting bigger, he looks like he's going to be a heavyweight and him single tearing house down, and and I said it before as soon as I saw show before yoghurt out there about to push him on a singles. Run the haircut. The look like he looks like he's ready for singles run. That match was great like they are grooming certain talent that I'm looking at. This is good, but. It sucks because the top of the cars now stinks. I can't figure this one out Zack Sabre Junior. Taichi women tag titles. I was surprised. But I also feel like. They need somebody to go after evil as well so maybe. Koto, boo she's GonNa make that run. And title off of them as a team I just have irises missed this whole thing up I just evil. Turning and there's no. I like the Matt the gift. The match was good. Maybe I could say are not probably not, but there was no heat because the match was in good. Even when Togo ran in with the bushy gear on. Aid in like it. It was so belabored in long until the attack NATO and try to choke him out I said fuck is going on. Not Good. Jay does long walk. To the Ray Nishi he coming out of there and hit nights it took. Took them a month to get to the ring? I mean. We always got a problem with referees new, Japan. Ray Richardson. He's just in the weather focus going on. Always, there's just office just oblivious to the rule. Just like do what I love Richard I think he's greatest referees. Fun To Watch, but man. It's like the liberal use of the rules in tag matches, and like this particular match God, Damn so yeah. Dominion was a good solid show. Two matches were really good stuck out to me I just mentioned. That main event. Like. This is what we're going into the summer with. Wolf. Back Good No at a time when you rosters limited. To me. You're only as good as your top guy. You're you're champion? Carries you through these moments. and. This isn't the guy I would pick for. You had the guy for that. Well, that's the other thing. They have no heels. They have no top heels and that was the guy that they decided to elevate. So, weird because look yes tallahassee! Baby face. Bucci baby face Okada face NATO. He's baby face. But, then you look at the heels. Menora Suzuki seems like yes, Corona virus. He's GonNa. Be Out and he's old, so hopefully pulls through. by L. desperadoes, the next person's can be challenging. Shingo for the. Title it's like El Desperado, but he's good. He's had a good run for the past year, but then you start thinking about exact same Virginia and tight you and now the champion's. WHO's the next? Head nobody. No no one I mean. Shit, Nah! They literally have no like this like they. This hit them at the wrong time because they have no hills, no top heels. were. Of been predicated on being the guy's Jean right like usually the heels. The top guys lot of the time are foreigners. And then you had a guy like nights. He'll, but as soon as he wanted. The reaction was so different 'cause you made him earn it so much. that it pushed him into being a babyface. They! Like they literally have. No heels, no top use. The have heels I-IT-IT's. He'll and Desaparecidos. He'll Suzuki. Goon is a stable, missed a heel stable, but all the baby faces chaos bully club. You look at them as a heel. Fact is hard like you look at bullet club before all this happened. Who's your top guy? Should more. Yet at this point. No guerrillas destiny. Like there's is strangely enough. This will be the perfect time for Thomas to have to have a push. This would have been the perfect time perfect to push him into singles. They do the same angle with Tonga. Great! Great Jay White. Coulda pulled this off again, great hip evil, and like the whole turn on Ilaje I would've took Sonata. I could accept it, but again the thing is is like the shoehorned into having to have a top heel running bully club during all this. And even if it was Tanada I wouldn't WanNa Sonata and Bully Club. They. I don't want anybody like bully. Club is a gay gene faction. That's what was built upon. You know guys being there now. They're all Japanese wrestlers. They should've just cooled down bullet cook. Yes, exactly so much merchandise. He thought well. This isn't that was an, but that's a WWe liked decis. Yeah, when you make decisions based on Merch because book, Club is still popular, but even again even if Sonatas Sonata might have been a better choice, but. I would preferred Sonata. Turn Heel or evil. Just turn heel. The book club affiliation doesn't give him a boost. And now like they got Dick Togo back to toews fifty, it'll be fun to watch him and she go at it. But. Yeah I. I don't know I. Don't know where this is heading. I don't like. I don't know either. There's no good way like this j white comeback when restrictions are lifted, and then now there's a inner turmoil and bullet club. Good they've done this before. They did it with cody and Kenny. In the ball. Yeah, I guess so so they could do it briefly briefly, but again to foreigners. Get exactly this is. This is going to be extremely complicated to make sense out because they are in a tough spot like I. Say Joe is out for your somebody. Else's heard for a year camber. Who? So like. They have to push forward with shows, but they need to establish stars. Or top heels and top guys like in baby. They're loaded on babies. Load loaded. Know Top. US and again with Suzuki beane out. You don't even have him to rely. Yeah maybe Naito goes back and uses this AMMO. Fuel to be more, he'll again. It's just he didn't need to drop the titles. Knuckle in the bully club in whack match. If you, talk about like someone earning a title shot or having momentum. None of that outside of this tournament. It just had I was shocked every time he advanced. Well, so yeah, crazy Let's touch on slumber for Serie and leave the back half to be like a normal back half where he talk aws and main roster, so listen up slammed version before we take our break. We haven't talked much impact if any at all. But you know we've given Kudos. About the little stuff we've seen, but I'm very interested in Islamic versus seems like the bill is good. They've used their time during this pandemic to build stars and build well. We'll see stuff goes with Tessa being gone. I mean she had vacate the bill, they the belt. Moose has been running around with the TNA championship which is hilarious. But still, Moose in like a weird spot to me. They always keep Moose and we're spots me so. We'll see what plays out with Moose but This I'm interested in because of the people who may or may not debut. Lot of rumor WWe names. Unfortunately, there was a report today that. ROUSSEFF has come down with Kobe. So rousseff battling the roanoke hopefully pulls through I feel bad for lot like three people in her family. Have it her mother, Russa believe her father was reported at one point so hopefully everyone pulls through there, but that kinda takes have often the table. They might get some people they've had before back. So, Maybe he three maybe. Eric Young there. There's people out there. The good brothers have been rumored. To be going there, and that's cool because that might open up for new Japan, if those reports are correct, so I'm interested to see who shows up as much as I'm interested in seeing the matches. Yeah impact is in this strange predicament and I think we talked about this maybe a couple of weeks ago, the whole thing was supposed to be this huge moment in pro wrestling. She's got the rapid use of the end where they had like coo, the whole idea got cooled off. Now you're heading slam Versi Mrs, pandemic, but the pandemic didn't. Impact. It's people being crepes like. Sure that that's ruined like Elgin's Gone Mike Eleven's gone. semi-colon anywhere new car. Yes, he is, he's on the low tar, but. Now tests has gone, and it's like you have to retool everything. Because now you have the main event with Ace Austin. Idiot words trae Michaela. Who's this mystery opponent? And That's a good spot to bring someone in a good spot, but then the next thing is. Like they say the gals and Anderson have signed with impact and they're able to. Japan, once the board is open. which this is going to be really interesting because they go back to Japan and they're like. All the bullock. Columbia. What what the fuck is this like? What? What about miss? Austin powers see right here. It's completely different, but. They've gallows Anderson. You look at Eric Young maybe later. there's been so many teases EC two decades, wasn't he? Just on WWe ain't got kicked to the moon by drew McIntyre but yeah yeah. It looks like he got buff like look bigger to. Swap put in work get. Working the ring, but you look at all this talent that impact is teasing and it makes me wonder like well. How many of them here? Just for slam versus versus how are you going to be here to work in impact? And I don't know the answer to that. Yeah, I know they prerecorded like a month at a time. Right, so it's not like. They. Do like their four weekly shows. Every month. because I see Chris. Bury talking about it when he goes for recording. WHO's also on this card so I? Mean it frees them up move pretty freely. Now, like you have a weekly television obligation. Yeah I. Don't know Man I'm watching. I'M GONNA. Watch this car because you mentioned it. Chris Pavers William. Action be amazing. Like right off the Rim I look at that match and I'm like Oh. This imagine the night. There's no there's nothing else they can. They can beat this match. No wrestling with stereotypes loans. Yeah, we got a good. We have a good like roster on wrestling with stereotypes. You ever look at that Shit sometimes. He'd like Y'all we've had some good fucking wrestlers on with. We're not done. We'll talk eight W in a second, but I private party was just prominently each yeah. It's been a good run. We are now Rosa, much other people, but like looking at this car. Yes, Mac Bay match stands out again I. Don't know I have no idea who's going to win. The impact Title I'm leaning towards Eddie Edwards. But I do absolutely clueless. How because I don't think they know I think I mean now. There's recording I'm sure but I feel like up to the match itself they I. Don't think they had a clue what to do. I think you give it to the new guy. Do if if it's easy three. You give it to him to gate CC three. I can see that. Easy You throw him right in there. If he slater probably not Eric Young I'm not popping for. It feels a surprise guy like you gotTa Rousseff. Oh rousseff would have been great. I mean so I mean it's pre-tape, so no, yeah, so that match on interested in join the Peraza match like damn man the Peraza. Felt like. I always feel like be missed the bus on that one before she got out and was able to Rehab, and now she's in a title match well. They missed it twice in annex. T right. They had her Carter brought. Her back missed it again. No, she. She's good I don't know. She brought anything different to their roster. Just and that's why she's gone. which which is cool? Yeah, if you don't if you don't fit, go. Man Sometimes, it's just sometimes. It's just a great fit like I. Don't think EC three was bad i. just think it wasn't a great fit at that time. He got lost in the sauce. So now he goes, it's like they held onto him to like I, said, hoarding talent, eventually godless own them. Go just let them go. Grab Fly Exactly, so I think you mentioned the matches I'm looking forward to I don't know much about this gauntlet match. Women's garment match. I don't know how long that's going to go carol. Hogan someone. I WANNA tab on a podcast eventually. She's going to be on Russell stairs on the. Yes, she was her anti. On. The women's panel. That we were going to have. That is postponed. I refuse to say no. But that going probably build tired win, but we shall see. Matter bad way to go and then yeah I don't know. Why can't shamrock semi Callahan are thing. But they're going for attack championship on north and losing titles anytime soon, so no I think the north, and then we see a good brothers. Stare off and and the other thing before we move on I don't know much about like month-to-month impact booking. But booking moose like randy or in legend killer gimmick. For the past two years is much. Yeah, like he's just always facing. Old People Shamrock slowed down now. We got Tommy Dreamer. I think he wrestled old guy before like come on. Yeah I like Moosehead a money gimmick about a year ago, and had the robes and the gear, and he was like this heal and is entangled in these old folks. Matches is retirement home, matches and I'm like. Yeah. He's better than that. Yeah, he is, he is but. He. You know the other side of Moose is like. Hasn't made like a great account of himself social media lately. And I. Don't know if it's being in character just being Dick. Can't figure out what. But he complains ally like he takes to the wrong set of a Lotta arguments and it's just like you doing. All this promise Moose a ton of problems. We use a ring on her. People go to WWe. He ends up in impact. Put Ceylon them. And then like he has his great, he'll turn analysis I. DUNNo. Moose. Moose. I! Felt like the hand side. Win it though Moose. He was so over. We saw wrestlemainia weekend. Chose them, for a second yeah! Yeah, he wrestled. Those barroom joints ricochet was wrestling and Keith leadership was stacked by the way now looking back in Dallas but most wrestled in the Moose and sign. Over to the moon. So, yeah, I'm interested to see what happens at this pay per view. shut up to Justin Ivan Group Chat. We'll all be watching along with them. One of the few times we can probably say that. Maybe they can make me a believer. Who knows we'll see? That's a quick break. When we come back, we'll break out. Break down the rest of pro wrestling and exte- eighty w and the horror show you guys.

Just that quick, we are back diamond right back in a pro wrestling. We have to start off with a W and drink before we get into the final night of Fire Fest Tony Concept to twitter. And made sure people knew listen, he is happy with the ratings. He's happy how things are going. They were number seven in the target demo. And that's what matters to him and most people television, so he's happy celebrating and he's not worried that they have lost annex. T I believe three straight weeks and ratings. Overall because they're winning target demo. Are We seen cracks in the foundation. Yeah what why even do this? I don't even like aws been winning for me for several weeks multiple weeks months. And the first sign that tees successully. Count programmed you in one. ignored. That I mean publicly internally, you could be like Shit. We gotta figure out what we gotta do. Probably you don't have to address that. because. You are the underdog to begin with. No matter what no matter! How much family has no matter, the time slot? You're the underdog. So when you're winning win. Be Quiet in win. When you lose, lose, be quiet. Lose put on a better show. Between on and Jericho like coming out and having talked about like the demographic listen man. I like I does on. You Save as well fuck. The ratings doesn't matter I just like both shows. Wednesday night's nice pro wrestling. Correct what? I have never seen such an emphasis on target demo before. Like wild true. Eight, like if you're going to break down the nitty gritty, for whatever reason, which is completely unnecessary, but we're GONNA do it anyway. If you're GONNA, say that's the target demo and W W. Beach when an older demographic because www legacy brand and older people are going to stick with what they know, right? They're not going to go. The new shiny thing doesn't always mind you they. They also beat them in the demographic. That does not show TV ratings because these people do not own televisions, but they beat them in the young demographic five to thirteen. Because that's why wwe still a PG product. So if you want to include those people, I'd say it's pretty damn near even, but they don't consider those people because they don't. Push advertising dollars necessarily towards them, which is false because pro wrestling kids make parents by ship. But Either way as like. Guys lost a couple of weeks. So, the fuck what? You eat that it's cool. It happens just keep putting on a good show. Don't live like you're desperate and you need. To you have to prove anything to anybody. In that in that sense, 'cause we don't care I don't care. Like their fan base doesn't get stuck. I didn't care. Your Fan. Base is much hard courts foot. Do they care about ratings? I didn't care when he w is winning. I didn't care I was like okay good. Which one do I like better because they're all based? On what people are watching like? I didn't watch empire because everybody was watching this shit I didn't watch bad TV show, so it's like if I'm watching wrestling on Wednesday nights and I watched them both. As long as one isn't getting slammed like it's not a million viewers to a hundred thousand. Everything's fine like this were splitting. Here's here's a couple of ten twenty thousand people thirty. One way or the other usually like. Shit like this is dumb. I I hate it. He didn't I. Hear that Tony Conduct. Necessary. And for someone who's been at news stations were past couple years. The reason why you keep hearing more about target demos is because less people are watching television in general. So. These networks now believe the way to gauge success is to attack that devil and keep them from longer. Before he was just overall, because everyone's going to watch TV's give. It never had to try to keep someone now it's. Can we target this demo and compete with? Those watching stuff online streaming and digitally and take them from that and plug them into the television demo. Which is why that demo matters more than everything else because that means, you can steal from the youtube from the instagram's from the facebooks. Everything else it'd means that you're keeping more people away from that than anyone else. which is what advertisers want to see because not advertisers just going to take their money to those mediums, so they say you can keep people away from that. I will give you money. That's why that target demo matters. Of. Why have those just inside inside? TV DOT but. Yeah I mean it means money so cool. That means they're making money. Are they making more money an extreme right. It's twenty thousand people it doesn't. It doesn't matter like I think I mentioned this maybe a week or so ago when I was talking about like bt in the problem with bt, and how bt continues to neglect, the audience is still has cable, which is a crowd. This over thirty and I was like this is really easy of this library of content. Give me video soul I watch that Shit Gimme figuring the basement. Because if I still have direct TV wherever it is, because like who live which I have doesn't have. Any Viacom Nickelodeon. So those aren't watching that stuff. But the target do not catering to your demographic so with a W. If you have the audience you want. And your network is happy with the numbers of sure pulling in. Why are you trying to clarify social media the difference? Ten thousand viewers, Nope, nobody gives a shit until you make them give issue, and that's what Tony Kahn. Now like the W W we're to be paying. Close attention to those ratings boys on either side GonNa come out is I. Look fifteen thousand in the end. The twelve eight shut the fuck up man. Just watch wrestling. Yup reminds me a lot of conde and fifty set. Were that changed not how the music industry viewed it because they always. Ready looking at soundscan billboard and all this shit, but he changed how fans started determining what was the success? What were your first week? Numbers of birds yet like? That's what they're going to do they. He put a spotlight on it and sooner or later that takes away from your quality. Because if that's the measure you want, go by. WWE IS GONNA. Kick you an ASS by saying we're double them. So our product is double them, which isn't true. Main Russell was not true. So it, it's a tough thing to key in on Let's go down the card real quick for the week. Can You? Mega Adam page kept the belts against private party. I thought it was one of private parties. Better match, it was. Less clunky. But again it's a mega and Adam paid is still really good. OMEGAS still top three in the world so I think this is going to shorten the learning curve for private party shot outside a cassidy who just turned twenty three two days ago crazy? Bananas so they? They're going to be here for a long time and be very good. But I think they're putting them in with these really good tactics every week. Because it does shortens, you're learning curve it helps it helps you learn what you're doing like. You can't wrestle bombs all the time. You have to put over talent like you gotta make them look good. Private parties been in there with some of the best teams in the road already they'll only get better so good match. Yeah, You, know obviously we. Don't have mutating champions so. Everything is still kind of in the mix. It seems like onto maybe a triple threat. Kind of thing with the bucks. A who knows a has another brandon. Show this week which I forgot. What show this is It's five for the fall. From fallen another brandon show, which is probably going to deliver the best match of the week. It's his FDR versus Lubos. Yeah that's GonNa? Be fucking nuts. It's GonNa be a good one. So. We'll we'll see what comes out of that one. Then had Lance Archer Verses Joey Genoa. Doesn't do it for me like he doesn't look scary. I get easy, Eli. Mazda doesn't look scary. The hairs weird. The two braids and a beard is weird, and they do these close up shots and made him look seventy years old. I don't like Oh. I can't get behind them as their monster monster he'll. Go would I can't get behind. Isn't that with the trying to make his how this match was booked? Gina Gun a ton of offense over gathered sued over as a monster. And Sunny. As Sunny enjoyed, you know they should have got murdered in this match together. Lay should simultaneous listen. If, that's what you're trying to push. You're trying to push lance archer to be this Mazda. He'll then make up a monster hill so I have no idea what they're doing with Lance. Glances, I think is good on these great. I guess. I thought he would have been the first team champion, but I was going that direction. They put it on code either GONNA put somebody else over. But. Yes, especially. Whatever. What is whatever? Whatever Match probably of the week butcher Blade Lucia Bros. FDR, tr young boxes. Was Only sixteen minutes, but it was action packed entire. This. WHO's to spot after spot after spot at the spot? and. It was one of the best matches I've seen in quarantine. It was as advertise. Your butchering blade can go. View Them Abacus. Yeah I mean I still don't get the new gimmicks. But fuck it. They could go. So I thought it was really good. Great Lucho Bros. back, and I was genuinely shocked by the result. Not. The butcher and the blade were only to pick up. Food, this was. A great a tremendously booked match, because even in the end when you thought the end was going to be US obvious, was GONNA win. No. You had a great match in that that destroyer the to the outside Phoenix. Did all my? Phoenix's just bananas like this. I love this match. Was Great on all accounts. Everybody got this shit in. We got yard ring psychology. We got the Lubos do their thing. And Butcher and blade got good time and the ring, and did some great spots they it wasn't a complete spots I them stories being told, but you know obviously the plant, the seeds to get to the young bucks in Fdr at some point, we just don't know when it is this going to Sasha and Bailey. We know it's going to happen just a matter of win. But this marriage was excellent. Excellent Yeah Donald Trump. Yeah, I really good, so that was probably my mash of the week. That was fun nylon. Rose Squash match. Give her a couple of these like this. how You keep her afloat I'm not mad at. was two minutes it no sweat off my back. then. Get a please explain to me. Coca, Abana. And Brodie Lee being inappropriate. They pick up the win over so cal censored. And then still grayson randomly pops up to by the way. But I don't get it. What brody was in the title picture. And then you go to a program with Coca Ben and no stakes I feel like they built his ass backwards into the should have been the first navy before the title match. Exactly it's like the fiend. Like you understand is hot. But you put them in the title picture. Way Too soon Mike. You always say there's only one way to go. This was so. It makes this look less than like the story itself is okay. They Cochabamba Goofy Guy, and you know you're trying to give them an edge in putting with a dark order. We don't really know this play out. We yeah they worked this whole program backwards. The match was when it was. Cochabamba picks up the win. I just don't know where this is going. The interesting thing is as I'm looking at the dark water still Grayson's pretty damn good wrestler. and. I. Don't know they got to figure out what they gotta do with. These guys make them interesting. But. This some talent. There is just not being utilized properly. And I don't know how we get there. Coca band is going to be the one to like. Shit dark orders coming, so I don't know. I don't know this match was what it was. It was another mason. It was cool. But yeah, it was trying to serve as a story, but I didn't care about the state. Okay yeah me either like I. I would was not asking for those two to be in a program together Coca Ben and a year twenty twenty, just my book. But DJ's on. Minivan Chris Jerk overs Orange Cassidy. I liked it a lot orange. Cassie I think is Great Chris is a perfect person. Put him over. They feel like it has another gear though and they might be blowing it off. Yeah I don't know how the songs GonNa End I. Like this match to I think you know it was? It was wiser jerk of over. You need orange to win. It yet have the old veteran outsmart the young whippersnapper. Now was the way that this was handled. That was well done. What I still have some legs on it so hopefully they're not done with like. They've been done with us to feel like they start to bubble and they disappear which everything does. Exactly. That's what I hope I hope. It doesn't end here because I really liked it, but I feel like there's there's more there's definitely more. There's more juice for the squeeze here. They just got to do and I. Don't know if they're gonNA. We'll see, but it was a good match I. I liked the match. Dude Orange Cassie is one hell of a Superman Punch on why she looks so clean, but it does. Way Bit enrollments note not to disrespect row each. Is it just different when he comes from a guy that size any moves so fast? Yeah, the burst of energy is what makes it. Look so great. I think 'cause he's. He's figure that out. He's like Yo I'm. Agile kind of flying type of wrestler. But I can make it feel so much more special because I'm slowing myself down and other times. So it gives them like that. Weird Superhero Quality. I've also been watching a lot of my hero academia so. I mean that's also fresh in my mind, but arch cassidy. Has that feel to me? Next we're talking about exte- great American Bash night to after. PULL IT UP I believe. It kicked off with canvas. There you go. which I thought was a really good match. It was weird because it was like I liked the ending lot to the ending, it was a weird match because. It was like. To Count Program the second night great. American Bass clearly didn't have plans for the second night and they're like Oh shit. The slapstick things together to counter. Fighter fees and put the patch on, and I'm like well. This is a good match. You could use a proper built or at least a tease from last week. To tell us that this mattress happening. It was a streetfight. He was teasing I. Don't remember being teased Y- fought back last week, but they didn't announce the match though until this week, okay. Yeah My. They announced it the day after on social media, but it was the same time Johnny slapped Isaiah Scott. Swerve, so they did, they did a whole. T's just removing keithly from the picture. Yeah! So? Yeah I thought the match was good I. Mean Put an end to their feud. I don't know what that means though. For either. I. Don't know where everybody everybody's going. And that's not a bad thing. I. Just I just don't know 'cause tiki noxious, obviously the next title shot, and then I feel like well, then what? Type of shots this week here, so it's not like it's a pay per view. Type is in a program. I don't think so. Meetings to tell you on because if this happens and. Then nobody's in a few and it's kind of like a reset, but. Yeah I mean it's the midway point now they build towards summer slam weekend, so maybe Kansas the rate off of a win comes out and starts antagonizing. US Right I just wanted to win some more matches. You GotTa start somewhere. I know and starting with a street fight with I finish finished probably a good good starting point, and then we had Bronson read versus Tony Niece. Go without that. I tuned out I was watching. Hey, W at that point and then journey gone over is swerve. I like this match. I think this is good. We didn't have to win, but it's a good way to start prying him away from the cruiserweight division. I thought this match was okay. I thought this mentioned another gear that it didn't get to. And there is an issue that I'm starting to see swerve. I can't figure out is. Like I watch him wrestling. I know he can wrestle, but I can't figure out the character. Like I'll watch them and I seem cut his promos on my easy. The cool guy is like what is he? Air something missing is crazy. 'cause to me him and Chris Bay have the same character. Chris in a month at impact, has been month, and a half has been able to translate that to television immediately. And you know that he's the cocky cool asshole. Swerve has not know it's so weird because I'm like you WanNa roof from like damn, but I don't have. There's nothing to sink my teeth into when I'm watching swerve. I'm like what am I watching. I. Don't Know Is. He's the guy who has probably turn you to really get the character over, and then earn his way back to because I remember like I've watched them in the indies I remember his kill shot in Lucianne background, and when the other mass graves like this is. Ricocheting wear masks and they work, but here like a watching this match. I can't figure out like what he is. And the match was fine and I'm like this is a much better in here, but there there is no character right now. I'm watching a black creator. Do some really cool shit but I have no attachment to it. So they got to figure something out. It's worse too good and not do anything and I. Don't know if this fault. Can't figure that out you. Know He needs more time to tell those stories yeah! But, but he's on TV. Thoroughly impressed with promos all right. He's here. He's got. I I don't think he should play the underdog role. And if this is setting up to be that underdog, I don't like that I. Think he's Cocky. that's who he should be. That's that should be the character, so we'll see where they go with that Then, we have the LLEGADO delphine thousand miles. I liked him as I was so. I was so I would. I would like watching this match and it was like yeah, android Maverick. They kept them away from Fantasma foot well. They kept him away for a and they finally got into it and you know resigned. Cool, but just watching the faction worked together I was like Oh this works. Yeah. They have to find a way to make wild among Mendoza. A legit tag team and not just part of the crucial. It's right. That's the only thing and they've got to do this today. But sooner or later with how the next tanking picture as It makes no sense to not have these guys in it. Just because the leader of the faction as a cruiserweight. They are still tag team. They should be in the mix in the tag team scene as well when they grow into the role. So I like that. I thought that was cool. Match Mercedes Martinez squashes guard. Or are nowhere Martinez it's maybe that's an eel sheriff you'd. Just waiting to happen, just because will get a really good match. Shirai sometime down the road. Maybe I don't carry. Yet. Carry Yet main event Keith Lever Sam, coal. Spoiler Alert Adam Cole loses keithly as a double champ. Start there cool. Talk about the actual match. I, really like this before very weird reason. We see these big guy. Little Guy Matches all the time. And I thought it was going to play out. How it always does, and the little guys trying to take down big guy, you gotTa Work Lame Little Guy. Regardless of your heel of face usually is the underdog. Trying to battle through some adversity chop down the big guy. This wasn't that. This was the traditional he'll versus face match told between a really big, I in a row small guy, but had no play on or bearing on the storytelling. Because Adam Cole had most of the offense Keith Lee had to prove himself regardless. How big you was! Co was sharpen his ASS now. WOOP! Him constantly feeder him finishers, and it made keithly seemed bigger because he was taking all of that. And I like that. Dynamic between big are small. Rather, than always bigeye had top Dell small guy or skinny small guy shops, big guy. He overcomes Hans like it didn't fit this narrative, don't they played it really well for this narrative. Yes I. Mean I like this match. I. Feel like they have a better match. And that's a that's actually a compliment. I don't think like I feel like this was a really good match. And just it was like a takeover. It would be even then. This was not the either of their best matches, but it was still really good. His match goes off if it has fans. I think look differently too crazy, but. Like, I'm saying, this is a compliment because keithly. Adam Colon really good, and they've managed to have a really good match, and I feel like there's still another level to how good a match with could be which. is how I feel about Keith Lee overall right now and this again. His his ceiling is higher than most. His floor is also hire the most, but I still I feel like right now. I'm seeing him closer to his four than his ceiling. And this something we'll look at this and say. This is saying that he's not doing well. No, he is. But I feel like there's even more to it like the Gargano match I felt like there could have been more to it. This coal master could have been more to it, but it was still good like this Nitra still really good. I hope. Mike. It's not even a concern. I hope the league. It's a lengthy run to give us a takeover style match that we're used to for the title, so he can show people that not that he's just really do with a ton of potential. That he could be one of the best in the world. I mean he's done. Five Star matches physical saying POW. House one in the yeah, that's what I'm saying. Watching with cold. I'm like Oh you guys when you when people want to Dodge Kovic is really goes like you didn't see. The PWG mashes wall. Actually like you haven't seen keithly like, go go. You haven't seen it yet. You've seen what's better than what you've seen that a lot of other wrestlers, but the ceilings higher I one complain about this match one. That happened on TV. At Regular S Steve. Wasn't a regular asset. This is I. DON'T GIVE this regular Steve. I'm just telling you when it's a regular sst with a name on it do fighter is a Raillard itemize show with the name on it. You can't tell me that feels like I'm watching. This was not like a takeover quality show. No. It didn't have that big takeover night. Vis with or without this so that that's my only complaint I love seeing Keith League. In the celebration I loved all of that I. Just wish this would have been summer slammed weekend. And I feel like I love. I love the tease at the end to carry and cross just looking down from the rafters yet while this celebration is going like over the shoulders. See perf this. This is what I didn't like. Because, as much as like Karen Cross keithly just got the title. He's going to drop one. Be Champion for like. He's dropping North American before we gotta make sense. Okay, so like why would carry across? Go after the north? American in. Title? No it now becomes what keithly allows him to challenge. See I don't know about that. Keith. Lee saying you haven't been here long enough. Really going to say that you know that shitting this annex t this is WWe programming. He's just going to. I'd like my what I'm saying is I don't want to keep the pin fall so soon. He's just winning the title. I don't want him to lose a match this quick. and carry across can't lose this quick. You see what I'm saying. No, the only way to pull it off his fifty-fifty booking with cross beating in for the North, American and then keep Lee coming back after and somehow. You know fighting back to actually give caring crosses. I Pin and win in retain his main. Just. Keep them apart for awhile. I mean at this point they've. They've jumped ship unless unless he wasn't stalking. Keithly at all. And he is in fact stocking. Adam, Cole. Because Adam Cole gave Keith Lead Adapter Hug afterwards. I think Cole might be going on baby face on if he doesn't go. Out Do I feel like undisputed nearest time's up over. I think this, was it. There's nothing left from to do. As a fax to move up. The facts and they're done like what else is there? I mean not on top I think they can just show for a second. I don't think they'll go I. Don't think immediately I. Don't think you bring them up until you have a crowd I mean. See. I don't know how long you can wait because we really don't know we're GonNa have a crowd, then you let them chill. I think they show up on smackdown like Friday I. Feel like it should happen around Summer Slam. Maybe if this is what you're gonNA do because honestly I'm looking at this unforced. Still left a feud on the table. We Ballard and Cole I feel like the the just left on the tape. Greet but whatever Kohl's run was amazing. Undisputed run was amazing. This really nothing else for them to do. They've all been losing all their feuds. And now the KOHLS, you're up the title. There's nothing left for them. So they gotta go to raw. Then it'd be disappointing. I need them to smackdown. At this point that both run with the same person via smackdown has a different perception. Yeah, I mean backed out. She needs to be a wrestler show. It's do. Every week I try to figure out which was worse which lead us into extreme rules to hor show I. Watch raw like this is bad. And, then I'll watch a w watch next feels like. Oh, my spirit's becker, then smackdown fuck! It's McDonald's over show on television. It was so bad this week. The cameras cool because drew. Mac does his thing. You have read your promos orange doing well, then you have Kevin owns coming back Apollo I like as he was sharing Paulo Careers Mta. MVP. And all that Bobby Lashley still rosner now bad if they just fixed the dumb ass tag division. They'd be cool. Rose not horrible. It's long as fuck. No, it's it's not bad. It's not horrible sight. They changed positions. Because, it was A. Really bad and now it's not. It's watchable. You're as good as your top guy. You know what's funny. Seth, rollins is great on RAW. There's a lot of good shape loan missions that weird. Which Poe the Horsham the the weird thing is, I can't figure out who's on what show occasionally, like Bailey showing up with the smackdown every week on raw, I know that the tag champions right and I know these they're allowed to be both shows, but it's so weird, but Bailey Sasha. Be The best thing in the company of women are the Yes Bailey Sasha and Oscar, and we carve saying coming back like just watching them. It's entertaining. And I was not sold on you guys listen to show. I was not sold on his Bailey he'll. She and I thought it was almost time to give it up preparing her with Sasha was the best possible thing to do. And hopefully like it's to the point now than Malian Sasha are going to turn on each other and save shoot wrestlemainia. Yeah, I wouldn't. It's going to sound stupid and it's might piss you off because horsewoman rule all. I wouldn't mind Sasha Oscar this week. pissed me off. I wouldn't mind and her. Having the raw chevy's Bailey having the smackdown and having the tag titles. 'cause they are the best thing in the company. Those to. It okay I'm not ignoring the fact that Bailey is pretty much just. Female Chris Jericho. Right. She's doing stupid idiots at the chief Chris Jericho. Right now like that school. Though that's she's running with it, it works for her. Sasha's being Sasha. They fallen into a groove, but there's a reason why they're on every show, not just the main Ross. Want there on Annex T TERRY SHUTDOWN They got beef everywhere and carrying shows everywhere. There's something special there. So give him the belts. And I don't mind Oscar chasing again. I. Don't want that, but see what I want. And we are top of the vapor core. Show well I want is is for us going to retain. And, then which is, this is not going to happen. Guys, but hey remember be. SHEENA baseler. Oche like those are people that ask wrestle. Like. I don't need like if Sasha has title and Bailey has a title now they're going to be a both your burden. The candle at both ends again just like you do Charlotte. Like, you don't have to do that. You don't have to you. HAVE BIANCA BEL? Air You have Shannon. Bazeley and they've just completely given up on her. I was appointed her running roughshod over elimination chamber. He's the Ne Test WanNa. Match on TV since. I'm not sure she's been on TV since Maine. Like Ruby right east pitfalls every week, why? I Dunno, she's still so good though I. Don't know why she unless you're building are up for like a cool run. I. Don't get what they're not. They're not cool enough. What were they do live Morgan and what happened to that. They have a karaoke contest. On smackdown. So the women's division isn't the best thing on Ron's back. No, you're right Balian Sasha. An Oscar or the best things on smack. Oh, it is bad, and then they had a good thing with a maybe. That's feels like. What happened to what I tell you. What's going to have some good track? Audience, his disappeared. What did I tell you? Though Vince runs a shit into the ground and gets tired of cool. I'm done, but now this guy has a briefcase. Now. What? I told you I told you. This was gonNA happen oldest. Eugene all over again you burn it and then Vince is like I'm tired of dishes. Move on! Seth rollins would have been so much better with every kiss anybody Kevin Owens anyway. Let's talk about this this horses we get. All right so apollo cruisers MVP. US Championship match old belt. I knew belt. I think Apollo crews wins setting. Him Lashley up for bigger feud as summer. Slam and Apollo crews guess to carrying around the new belt. which I think is really cool. I'm not sold on the new belt, but the dip set belt. Still but love that everyone's calling it, but I think yeah, cruise super here. MVP show still has in hopefully at least to him having more work. Because, he's a great manager. Like pieces really good. If period, he's really good so hopefully. These guys have a great match and Apollo your set shine, and he just I rub, and he ends a few with. All black thing. I mean to be honest. I wanted to bring back the beatdown. Click, but that's not. It's not. It's not too late for crews to join. In swerve, everyone And they bring the tag team with them to fuck all black Yvonne role. We all adhere together. Then thanks match Ramos says Rawlins I for. An eye focuses their rumors of this being. Another cinematic match with CGI an actual removal I i. hope that's just rumors. I don't know. Civilizations has to win before Rainy Stereo winning for. Lose an eye. He hasn't been Ashby. Only probably we'll have mysteriously. Set those doesn't are really needed. Seth gotTa wear I packed like DC. That's where the problem becomes like what like after this ends then what somebody's been mysterious has? Just has it's working mask like Spiderman were the. One I blackout to black the other. On the mask seven how to run around like a pirate. This is a dumb ass Max. Like when I saw stipulation, I was like so stupid. You're ruining something. That could be really good. I don't need this to be all cartoony. Where's awesome theory by the way? It's a good question. I. Don't know where the hell people are the Rona. We'll get tell me something. When I see, Wesley, Blake show up, and I see seth rollins and I'm like all right. There's a third one and then competitions. Damn just Sese, hurt. Home the MRS flight. You say something because awesome theory got hotshot into the main roster and he's been to stables already. Yeah, Hey got to figure it out with him. His kids me and the kids twenty one. You've got plenty of time some. Yeah, you. Can you don't have that much time to ruin him? That's also true. I can't no not at all stroman versus. Why it's slot fights. Strom is winning this trough so yeah. Is Not title. Maybe you'll just be a non though Cedar. Really didn't have like a real I mean no. This Brana win the swamp fight, and then we know where we're going to somebody to tell me. who was in the room and it was like hey events. You know we should call this the horror show. And nobody was like the Halloween. Why is this the Horse? There's no reason for this that we call the horror show. None maybe maybe because someone's getting higher moved. There's creepy added all this stuff. It feels like because that's the W works. They brand these views, and then they shoe more matches into the pay per view so like. Oh, the horror show with this swamp fight and there was like well. How about rain set have an eye for an eye man like this dome? Kansas is be extreme rules, because as a isn't extreme rules enough. You would think. You would think. They leave versus Mickey Cross delaying the inevitable here. We Know Bailey's going over. Yeah like good job by Nicki, though I like to see Nikki TV's so whatever Q. Collecting Checks Nagy. And then Oscar versus Shasha banks. You know my prediction. Yeah, boss all day I mean I'm picking. Say might not happen, but like was picking. Somebody got lose title. It feels like well. It feels like they're gonna add a match based on what happened. smackdown with a Nakimora are on the new day. New Day feels like having arrested on pay per view since Wrestlemainia. Thinks so and if it's added, it'll be pre show. Yeah, but I feel like they're going to have to add that magically plume through a table at the end, so I was like Oh. Tables match. So Yeah! That makes sense, even figure extreme rules of course. some was having a chairs match no. Not See a chair, the other unless I duNno, I lost track of it fucking final. Then main event drew McIntyre versus. Be The main event, I. ASSUME GONNA close with Wyatt and strong. Okay. Well. Title? But nobody cares about this match. It didn't have enough of a bill just because Dolf. Should it be in this position, but I think they're going to give a good match. There's no threat for drew McIntyre to lose the belt. Because often work his way into. It makes no sense to take the built, so we know the we know drew's going to claim more kicking on. The move onto whatever fuse next which I'm really trying to figure out who is next. Asked to be Randy Randy has to come out and Arcadio. Drew Out of knowing you gotTA. Start to be they have they alluded to Randy doing anything on the show with pick show. Why is it happening? No, he's feuding with the big show I. Why is this happening? I. Don't know what years this. That's why they're just killing time on weekly 'cause he was so hot that you just keep on television until the attached through like okay as an aside before we close this out the disrespect that the men's tag-team visits getting both shows is absurd. Because smackdown like do like I said has defended tag titles on pay per view sins wrestlemainia. And St. Profits are not definitive here. They had that bullshit ass match with the Viking raiders at the last and money money back. No, what was? Backlash of The headed bullshit a backlash. Within this. Like the TAG team division is an absolute shambles. Like, why aren't you probably doing anything like? Why are the Viking raiders just taking beat up by? Not Montana's but boy that needs to go on a diet doctors out of Aviano. Yes so paternity leave same reason Diet Dan. O'Brien isn't there some reason. Why does appear for a second? People are really taking this paternity leave I mean like no fuck you. I'm chilling at home for six weeks. I mean I have a baby used Rona figure it out, but I'm just saying like street provinces, attack champions, and they haven't really done anything. Now Viking raiders are in a few you. They tagged with the big show. Yeah, but they're going against someone else right. So attack t o Garzon on driving. Yeah, which is like they're not even like a real taxing. All we're doing is waiting from the break-up. Pretty much whatever. I feel I can draw going to be the I band out I. Don't I don't like the I feel like that's a good stable chemo together. Keep saying. Never listening. No. ADS cousin. Guards aren't doing shit and Umberto. Career should be tagged, and which guards still break out of that because he's probably the most improved during the for wwe. Andreotti's great. Aunt drought as amazing to boombox.

Behind The Scenes Of Day 2 At 10X Growth Con

"Hey, everyone is Russell Brunson. Welcome back to the Mark and seekers podcast yesterday. I gave you guys behind the scenes of day number one of the ten x growth con convention event would happen. How did on sales? Hopefully, enjoy kind of hear it a little behind scenes day number two because I had a chance to speak to days event. It's a walk. He has been seeing what happened there later on. My second presentation didn't share with you as well. So the big question is this how we're entrepreneurs like us. He didn't cheat and take on venture capital for spending money for own pockets. How do we market in a way the lets us get our products and our services and the things that he believe in out to the world and yet still remain profitable. That is the question in this podcast will give you the answer. My name is also Brunson and welcomed the marketing secrets. All right. So I woke up the number two. And once again, I was nervous. And so I will go up. I got on my slides her working on my slides and getting fixed. This new presentation. I never done before. And stressing out thinking how in the world am I going to do a presentation there's echo, nobody can hear me. And I did the best thing. Everything ready, and then I headed over to the venue, the venue saw Dave Woodward, and Dave had been helping a ton. Dave is just amazing amazing human when the hardest workers you'll ever meet someone who's amazing getting stuff done. So Greenwich team was pulled on day. And like what should you do? How do we fix this? And so they went and got pipe and drape in wrapped the whole upper concourse in the event hoping to block sound the opened up the top of the dome except grandpar- shooting, and they closed it, and it was super human hot. In fact, I was on stage. Just pouring sweat I faced with so humid, we they captured all humidity. So they broke it back open. Just like. I don't know ten percent open. So that this echo kid could get out the change the microphones. And they did they remove some microphones bunch of things to try to clean up the sound. And it was better still was not amazing. But it was better. And so I got there and one thing they said it's said Russell, you can't speak as fast as you do if you do when you speak this fast. Everything bounces off the walls. If you can just presentation you have to speak in soundbites, you say something hits the wall comes back to the next thing hits. Something comes back and everything's spoken. Sound I was like oh crap. Like, I have a big a two hundred slide presentation, I can't do that ninety minutes with without someone in and deleted like pike fifty slides to someone. Just one of my favorite parts. Some news presentation. What you see? Because like, I literally do the presentation than in the presentation. I show you what it did you in the presentation. It's so cool, but I delete all that. Because it just wasn't going to I couldn't get fitted in there. So I believe a whole bunch of stuff. And then one of the big ideas, I had his presentation I was going to bring some other speakers on stage people who've gone through our training, and and let them Asians tell their stories which I was really excited for so my second presentations called headaches secrets mastery, and then it was how. Mike how they can learn how to speak from stage, and I was really excited for this. Because you know, it lasts three point two million this when we send to really the four I was gonna show. My look how had to make a million dollars to how to make sell to the masses like the like most of the people in the room are salesman and Mike. So you want to one is one thing was when I met he's completely different skills that you have to learn and master, and I want to show you how to do this. And so we did and presentation so. So what happened? This is really cool. So I think all of us were kind of film bummed out. And and you know, sad from the day before she hadn't hit our goals. And so we can lift our wounds and in all people who were going to bring on stage. I had them meet me in the green room to kind of go over the presentations. I show him what's going to happen. And we can talk about it. So I brought him in showed my presentation. Now. Couple of highlights presentation, I found footage of the very first time I ever spoke from stage, and it was so bad. If I showed him that those clips nicer walking through. My presentation in the presentation, I take two big jabs. Gary Vader check, which was really fun because Gary called me out on podcast recently. And so I thought, you know, the Mike and setting front of thirty five thousand people, I definitely make fun of Garavito check. And so I did it was amazing. It was it was cool because it talked about it. There's two ways become a speaker was famous and get paid to speak. I show how people like Tony Robbins Schwarzenegger Oprah Bill Clinton Ellen Richard Branson, Cuban how much they charge for Keita which like two hundred thousand or something I think is up. It's one point four million dollars guys. It'd be a public speakers buy like ten x last year. I sold three point two million might take home with one point six million. So it's like you could either become famous and make two hundred grand or or learn how to sell for sage make way more than I shows fishermen Gary checks to pass and Gary chills different when the me geared wants to become famous Gary charges under five thousand dollars for speech. And then I saw the slide. Whereas like, you know, I made three point two million dollars ninety minutes. They went home with my kids, my family, and I said, you know, be keynote scared to give to be able to to make what I did ninety minutes as give twenty two. So that's one week. That's twenty two weeks. I said, you know, and I show pitcher Kim's looking super tired. I said, look if you can go, and you can hustle be tired. If you already can fame. Or you can just learn how to sell and make the same out in one one presentation, and that was Jabber one I made Jap later on. But it was fun. So for those who love Gary sorry, but he talked trash so I got my I got the last word, which was amazing. If people were laughing super hard, which was great anyway, then went down I show them where they're going to come in. So some of the people that were coming into parts of the presentation the first one is geared. Jay white. He came in. He was going to talk about his results taking this framework that we had Brad give and his partner Ryan Lee who they've done. They basically used to sell financial services across the kitchen table, and they took this methodology of so into the masses and a webinar attention. They'd twelve hundred people on a webinar last week now, and they actually just passed to combo Quebec's the the over ten million dollars funnel for Sommese then Jimmy cross Houston. Same presentation to sell soap and her oils and things like that. And I'd Stacy Paul Martino came up and talked about how they're using this to save mayor. Ages. There had let's see who the other people in your make sure if anybody then we had. Now Hodson came up shocked out of it and her experience as you fat of it and formed Slater made it over a million dollars telling her. Thirty seven dollars e book was amazing that I had any grace talk mouth. She. Uses to help people to quit drinking, and then she used this to make a bunch of money her vent. And then it had Myron golden who's been come up and do his magic as he is man with the most amazing humans. I have ever had a chance to meet in this world and Myron we're gonna bring him up Intel some historians and do Myron does best which is the audience to buy. And so we all excited, and I was still kind of nervous because because how that had been the day before. And it's funny because I kind of walk them off in the presentation show at word there was excited and this razzle what's the goal Hamburg can sell and honestly one hundred I'll be happy in Byron's like one hundred thousand and never was kind of all over the place and. And it was pretty cool. And then. As record this. It was funny because Dan. Sure whose runs. Click on the studio in Toronto. And he's amazing Viagra for Hughes. He wanted to capture this thing or having Garrett kinda come and pretend like he was the coach we're supposed to be this. Like this joke thing so Garrett they might them up. And then he came over starting this joke thing for probably minute. And then he just like he's like, screw it all these screw gear. He swears of that. But and then he just switched over into this like. He was like a coach in a locker room, my coaching all of us through the callings. We had and how this was a platform to share his callings, and it was like five or six minutes long. And man by the time, it was done drown all the speakers. And they were all crying so bad because Anne was back there and her make was all smeared in to guarantee he's telling this to me directly to me. He's got tears streaming on his face. And I'm sitting I start crying and like all this sitting here in this room. Just bawling her eyes out crying GARRETT'S talking about our missions and how they all tied together. And anyway, what's cool is because we'd put on the Mike for this thing that we were trying to capture we captured this whole mazing speech that was not planned and brought me in so many people in my team to tears and so actually wanted to share with you. I got the recording of it. I want plug it in right here. So you can hear what Garrett said because I think it meant a lot to me, and they're like those who are here, and and hopefully gives you guys kind of a glimpse of. Of your business in my role in your businesses. Right. Like. When I was your. Over the last couple of years. I've had times where Mike what am I doing this for it? What's the purpose? I can hope you will grow businesses. Why that matter in the grand scheme of things, and it's interesting because one of my one of my mentors and friends rooms tear Williams territory me, I should say your if you look at your your mission shaky really think it's it's a couple fold one is like there's there's people that have so much financial strain that they can't do it the old face to figuring how to get a financial strain. You come in you give people the tools, they need to free themselves from the captivity of debt or money in the freedom spills that then they can look outward and start serving and helping other people and what she said I was like oh my gosh. Maybe that is my thing. 'cause like who cares? If you guys make a million bucks ten million bucks. It doesn't matter right matters. If I can get the stress the pressure of you have to make money off your back, then you can start looking outward are serving other people. Right. And that's why our community always people all people to run stays. They're all people who are. Who who had a vision at a message? They couldn't get it out. And so they came somebody they bumped into to us or doing, and we have what help facilitate to get them into spot where they could take the pressures of money off their backs. They could folks on serving the people in everyone who is speaking there have now served thousands, and tens of thousands of people, you know, Stacy and Paul Martino of saved over ten thousand marriages. Eddie Grace's helped thousands of people beat the chains of alcohol addiction on and on and on. And so I think that's why I was so emotional for so I'm going to actually plug in that clip right here. So you can hear the speech the Garrett gave in the locker room. Do you know why I'm here? I'm here because I believe in you. Truly. I was already gone for six days. There's a longest have been gone for my family in five years. I'm here because he. You're called to do what you do. I was not called to do what you do without you. I can't do what I was called to do. Like, I'm not here for promotion. That's great. It'll be great for me. I'm here because I'm in your military force. I'm on your team. I'm in your unit. You're the general I run a unit. My men listen to what I say. In the way, I'm called. I follow you because you're called like we say, here's I I listen to your story like every single one of us have the same thing. I know I know the backstory, I know what the story is yet example is cell so but the end of the day, you're sending a message to women like this is serious for me when I shared with you earlier, the peace. They're not getting today, and they haven't gotten so far they haven't gotten the reason why follow you sustain that the sting. That's bigger than you. It's bigger than me. Like, dude. I love you. I respect the head of you. Today. I'll go to war with you. But for something that you have seen long before I could see it. It's not flowery speech for me to talk about how click funnels did something for me. Hey, what can I get from this without click funnels? There is no movement of warrior without the frames. There is no conversion to men to learn to live and marriages and families die in my world. People follow you. Because of who you are. And what comes through you? The software is the weapon the frame is the game. But your the reason? And I love the reluctant hero. I do. I love it. But there's a piece in YouTube. It's ready to click. This is the piece that you've got an army just waiting for that little clique afire, and it's game over there's no one that will stand on this stage that can harness the power, including me that you have access to right now because you built an army, and you what the Nys them. And you believe in God. And I believe in God. And I know they're all of us. Here are doing something bigger than we actually understand. And so out there was a circus yesterday. And it happened on purpose and it set up what's about to happen. From the beginning when you walk onto the begin when Marlin you finish it up every single one of his Alvin important role to play which is get into the state. That's required. The when you start speaking the thing that comes through him comes through you. So that this is seen not as a Russell show or Aguirre show or any bus. It is not even the click funnel show. It is a movement of people been called to lead movements all centralized on one thing which way compete. I see you man. I've seen you for a long time. And I know you see me because in that we see the same thing. And when I get to spend time with you guys that I haven't got to spend time with I see the same thing in you guys. So all the frames. So the side the frames. Everybody knows him. Thirty five thousand people doesn't matter that means that on the other side of a game. We cannot see. There are numbers. We cannot contemplate. That are currently standing waiting for you simply to get out of the way and speak and they're sitting in the ears of everyone in their seats whispering. So I'm here because of you. My wife's life was changed because you. It sounds funny that she was reading your book. But you're the only one that could have got into. So I'm honored to be here. Honored to support you and you're calling and I'm honored to meet all of you and be here with you. And some of you, I know better than others. And this was supposed to be a locker room speech of a different kind of be funny and the truth is I don't really know how to do that on cue. So anything funny I ever say it's not on purpose? It just mapping. But this right here. This is why I'm here, and I needed what you had to be able to take this that I feel and take it too. Literally, hundreds of thousands and soon millions. Thank you. All right. And I don't know about you. But again in the room it had all this crying. And I'm just so grateful for Garrett because he gave us kind of regroup doesn't give some motivation like, okay, Scott that we're going to change we're going to change all these people's lives. And so we got done that hadn't slides off to Jake team Jay credit to their guy. And I was like, okay. I can't touch the size again. Here we go. And so that's happened. All right. So fast forward three or four hours later. I was going to be the last speaker before the end of the day in the very very they didn't have had a some DJ or some Dougie fresh out of something like that in some wrap thing after me, but everything ran late. So everything's like an hour and a half beyond. We're supposed to be. But they're like, you know, what the last things like this rapper should just do your thing. And this is how we're making the big money. If you think about this like again from choreographing of the event. This could have and should have been where this event made his money. Like, it should have been the big the big payday and everything should've been coordinated to that. You know, but unfortunately, things happen. So I got back prepared to do my thing and a couple things happened number one. Is right forgotten stage, snakes logical sense. And it's like the like the backwards choreography, but grant was on stage. And he told everyone said, hey, everyone, we're two for one t-shirts right now be in the next hour, otherwise they're gone. They're gone and literally like thirty percent of the audience stands up and runs out right for like, right? When he's announcing me runs out to go and like, go, buy t shirts, make a ten dollar offer. Like you're blocking at twenty five thousand dollar off. With a ten dollar offers every running out of the stadium to go buy t shirts. There were two. Every speaker has been announced behind the stage where the thing lifts up, and you walk out, and this is big thing. Right. And some back behind stays about to be announced that way, and then grant messages his guy and says, I don't want Russell to be brought out from underneath the this the screen again, how about from side of the curtain as like dude, you're supposed to be positioning me to be doing the big sale, and then you diminished, my my positioning by having me come up from the size of under the just insane that he would do that and take anyway, whatever. So I lost the positioning which hurts me twenty thousand offer and then a fourth or through the audience was running out of the stadium to go by ten dollars t shirts. And then I was nnounced and I came out. So that was anyway, interesting choreography out there, I start speaking. And then an alarm goes off literally there's an alarm someone like set the alarm for. I probably tennis. I speed certain alarm blaring through the hallways of this whole thing, which is crazy and then one section of the stadium. Bayside start doing the waves. Everyone's up there doing the way I hear yelling and shouting and hear the alarm going off. And I'm up there on my way in the world is happening. This is like chaos. I know what to do. It's crazy, but I stepped on stage. I saw started presentation, and I started slow when I say the line deliver line. We've about back next line deliver it to balance back deliver it and like I could feel it like. There's something about his presentation that was different was magical. Like, I just it was so good. Delivering this the thing. And then I bring my guests on stage gear, white come and do his thing. Then have each person comes share their part is just beautifully orchestrated effort success stories and testimonials weaved imperfectly. And it was like the perfect admiring comes on stage. He does his clothes doing his thing. And it's just it was it was magical. In fact, Myron lead over to me one point you sit. Well, one of the I think I think it was Natalie or maybe it was. Andy was giving their testimonial. And he's just like he's looking at the audience. I looked like everyone. So engaged is like he's like the worst case scenario. You get a thousand people are saying, oh my gosh. That's twenty five million dollars. Right. I'm freaking out in. So we go through the thing we finish the thing. And we're going through the stack in the closing with one more closed left and grants him. I guess it was like the DJ's speed up right now. And he goes day. Like, you have your sloughs days day comes over. And he has miss look like you have to end this. Now would one more important close. The tire thing we had left. It was Byron's like the the best one. And I go to Myron might cut software to stop it. So we didn't get the last close, which is the most important close of the entire freaking thing. So we missed that one. I do last hour called action. I drive every little Florida people pay eight ten thousand dollars. There's a cell sable here on four over here. Twenty one thousand dollars there's sales table here. And we've got a table he was jumping up and running and upstairs told restart running. And like it was so perfectly executed ends plus stage. And I'm like film on top of the world, make oh my gosh. That the presentation was perfect deliveries. Perfect people running the like, everything was amazing. I go back to the green room kind of hanging out and relaxing. Oh. And then all the people came on stage. They were over at the sales tables. I to go close sales, and I told him I said, look all the people. He met up states say are over the tables come over and talk, and they're going to tell you their stories if you have any questions housework for you and say, that's what happens we'll go things. I go back to the Gruden relaxing like waiting for the numbers waves numbers and probably chemists. They're get white comes in. He's like dude, you got screwed Mike. What do you mean? He's like they blocked off sell stables. He's like I was by the cell sable and all these people trying to get to me and they completely blocked off. They wouldn't let us come back. He's I was trying to close those I can't even talk to single person. And I'm like what the came in. We got kicked out and then Dade comes the later days. Like, yeah. The fire marshal closed off one of the sales tables because there's too many people supposedly on the floor so fire Marsh close off one. I'll all right the table if I Russia block them, and then the DJ. Who was who was prepared for the thing? He bought his team blocked off. Either sells it was. So both sales tables on the floor for with all the three thousand people will pay ten grand pieces sit down there. The best buyers in the room, the two cells tables where he was supposed to get money completely blocked block to sell stables. There's no way for people to give the money. It was insane. So the world had finally what ends up about to leave day comes to me. Like, I mean, how do we do have? We do like I'm seeing I'm thinking like if we bombed we one hundred right? If based on the presentation in the Philly, the is that people running everything worst-case air, we did one hundred which is two one five million, which is now will be whatever almost five. I'm like that's halfway to our goal was because of me, and he's pissed like so mad these the only want to tell you. But I'll tell you what he's fourteen fourteen. He said yesterday block will sell only fourteen people who ran we've found us and other spots. I Hugh kitty me like there's no way. He's like. Yep. And now this out because there's a d there's a rappers going to wrap who will make them zero dollars event. And it's just like oh my gosh. So that's kind of how that would end it which was just like so frustrated like we execute our side everything perfectly. So that night we took our team all forty who'd kill themselves rented a yacht. We went on a three hour yacht thing night had dinner with him and dance and have fun. And it was a good time. And then the next morning we'll up and all of our team went back, and they started closing deals in our team closed another. They got thirty more people who they found the hallways to sign up. So we ended up with. What's that twenty seven or souls? I think we have six hundred seventy five thousand dollars and sales from ten x it's an all said and done from the for me. I think it was two point seven million. We ended which again is not bad. It's great. But it's tough when you're expecting tend to make you know about three. Anyway. So that was kind of how it all went. And then next day we just about the rest of the vacation. 'cause it was crazy all of our Phillies from the ten x launch as well. As people who spoke on stage. We put them on. The we rented yachts, and we send them to the HAMAs. So they they went out that morning and on this mastermind Diaz masterminding while they were on the up, and then my wife, and I had to go shopping for live close. So we shop til we dropped in. We jumped in a private inner plane private planes. The see play though. So it's like sitting the water that takes off from the water and flies you over to the HAMAs. We land the Bahamas, and then we hung out all night that night masterminding with all those people, which was really cool. I just amazing Sebastian mind with everybody, which is awesome. Next one. We'll go up in then jump back on the the odds in back to to Miami. And that's a whole story in a self. We had they. They smuggled somebody onto our yacht. Who got close jumped off and swam off they wouldn't let us a couple of minutes or flights 'cause they weren't lifts off. Because of passport issues. It was it was just nuts. The somehow visually at the airport, but often I flew home. And and the whole trip ended it so that was the text experience is kind of funny as we were talking about everything that could have gone wrong, literally went wrong on this trip. But same time like we had such an amazing experience grants team. Like, I love those guys they work so hard, you know, so many things outside of their control the echoing the different things had to get thirty five thousand people into a stadium. Like so things like that. And they did an amazing job with event. I mean think the smashing success for everybody. And I was frustrated with some of the choreography of the event, you know, that's not their strong suit. And it's something that maybe next time work them a little closer on. But anyone can put thirty five thousand people in the room. Is is amazing. Like, I don't even know how it's possible. But somehow they did it. And it was amazing the bureau the pitchers like, I'm sure you will see for next year and every ad of mind. You'll see pictures videos, and all that they mazing this because we got captured some cool stuff. So worst case scenario, we got the bureau, and it was it was really great experience. So. Thankful for for granted for Jared for allowing us to come and partake in that and be part of it. And they keep everyone who was there. And even though lobbyist couldn't hear me. I hope that you heard my message and the love that we have for all of you guys. We honestly want nothing more in this life into to change your lives. That's why we're here. And why we were doing this whole craziness on because I tell you what I made two point seven billion dollars sitting home not doing anything but wanted to come in and have a chance to share our message. Click funnels with with you with everybody who was there. And also because it's been interesting. You know, this whole internet marketing all of us are are doing is not mainstream yet, right? It's funny because I feel like I got starting this fifteen years ago. It was like it was like this this weird thing and people thought we were weird. And and you know, one of the things I've been trying to do over the last four or five years is really make this a mainstream thing make funnels a mainstream thing I want someday who are people talk about websites anymore. Talk about funnels. And I'm doing my best. I think this is such a huge platform for us to be able to share that with so many people. And and for all of you guys are businesses you're in, you know, I'm trying to lead the way by making when I do mainstream and hopefully yesterday the same thing with your businesses as well. So that said I'm going to wrap this up. My voice is almost gone. Let me get home plate by kids. Thanks so much for listening to everybody and follow hockey live is now we can have a way I cannot wait to see a bunch. He has there. I have five or six presentations. I'm doing now to get ready for live. It's going to be amazing, and I feel like for like lives, our family, and so sad to go that event and just fill it home with people. People get being us in excited to to share that with all of you. And without said appreciate y'all and talk to you algen city.

Always everything Man Ray. Now, the we watch wrestling podcast. We watch wrestling every Wednesday three sixty AM. I mean, it's it's it's no different than all elite wrestling right now, we're watching the wire because we're going to be in New York in April. And we're we're we're going to have some news. It's just a matter of getting that finalized just like we don't know where he's going to go where we're going to be. But we'll be somewhere. You know? We're not going to be sitting at the TGI Fridays all on our lonesome like mardi. Now. I tell you this is in this is me, this is my problem. But they they didn't Omar to the final of cheers in that being the elite. Okay, and mardi got the line. Just slightly wrong. Oh, Sam alone says. Why tell you? I'm the luckiest son of a bitch on earth. Mardi said, I'm the luckiest son of a bitch on the planet. And oh, you know, maybe a copyright thing. That's probably stay out of may. We, you know, maybe. Yemen. It's I'm going to double check I'm going to double check. Because that that's that's the links. I'm going to go to it's a new year. And so much is up in the air Kushida. I was looking for him. Stirs our main. Orlando. I may need to start looking in Florida. That's the word. I mean, I think we'll know we'll know more by the time. This is how because the right because the rallies happen rallies happening, but after we're recording. Maybe they'll there will get a little. Kenya? Mega action down there. I Kenney still under contract to new Japan. So I don't think he can show up to that rally. No. But I I think they could tip it feel. They may have tipped it with the being the elite because he said he lost his phone. And then you see his phone at the end near the job Fridays. Where Marty was all right. But also, I mean, if we go back to the end of all in right? They said, where's Marty? We're staying together. Right. Marty was the only one that wasn't there. So it seems like that's probably the move. I mean, if you know where a story is going it's not hard to tell a story. Well, and then for the viewer or reader or whatever to be able to look back and go, oh, man. They knew what they were doing all along. And it's always better that way. Yes. Always. Yeah. Yeah. Are they doing another star cast? I think they might be. I gotta get I gotta get Conrad on the horn who. Who's the porthole that we got blow to get on this Jericho cruise? This is it. I'm lucky son of a pitch honor. Thank you. Fuck. You buy already knew man. I knew already know I knew subconscious for the work, man. Yemen. Well. I just shit. My. If I call you man. Well, the wrestle kingdom has transpired dude. We saw what happened. We had us a little party. So much has happened. And my man Tana took it, man. Oh, man in a major way forty five minutes it took him. And and you watch news. Dash right? I did I don't wanna get ahead of ourselves. But going from the dome to dash and dash is a hot show, they build up a lot of angles young. But it was apparent how? Empty that roster is now and not that there's not a lot of talent in new Japan. Pro wrestling, right? Don't don't don't get me wrong. Talking star power over there. Kevin ninety talking star power. But it's just. The people that are gone. It's it was a parent. Yeah. I mean, the, you know, the there's one of those things I learned this very quickly WWE the idea of trying to bring somebody up, but you can also bring somebody else down, and the fact that they're going to Tonci tie and night. Oh, it brings night down Naito is already been on the. Yeah. Kind of the forgotten man. But it this new reality in new Japan perecent can only benefit Naito, but it's also going to benefit Taichi. Yeah. Well, they had a hell of a match before will see sure. But at any rate, I I wanna jump back into the dome Yemen. Holy fucking shit. If you haven't seen it if you haven't been convinced yet by the we watch wrestling podcast that new Japan pro wrestling is where it's at and you need to be watching it. Go out of your way, go out of your way. Yeah. And and you know, if for some reason. You struggle with the translation tool on your computer. So you're having problems getting the new world you can watch the dome on fight. If you just gonna wanna kick down thirty bucks, an not after worry about figuring out each man world. Although it's it's definitely to your benefit figure it out. It's not that. Art, Bing, bang, boom. Mehboob? I have so much stuff. Tabbed kinda cute up on my computer and my Google Chrome from new Japan world of English contents. You know? Yeah. I wanna I really wanna dig into the the little docs. They did of you know, the history of chaos the history of the bullet club all that good stuff. But they also have classic content. Sure. Anguish well image at some of it. I was like oh damn have gone back. And yeah. Or at least some of it had was just you know, 'cause 'cause they had a very like a long time ago. It was new Japan and WWF, you know, right now, it's new Japan and ring of honor at one point in the in the very recent past it was new Japan and jersey all pro, you know, the world let's forget maybe forget, maybe by the end of the month. It'll be new Japan and all elite you you don't know. No. But it does seem like 'cause 'cause we're even. Seeing cards now for the ring of honor sort of road to Madison Square Garden, and it still with new Japan. So rather they going to work with both. I don't know. But it seems like ring of honor and new Japan will continue to be the working relationship. Cording to pop Dave. Messed up enough Nelson. Was he was he in Cruz? What was he wearing when he was in Hawaii at fourteen hour layover? I got a fourteen hour. Layover Dave's flights. Come see me. They've call me. I can I can get you better route. I guarantee it man hour layover and Hawaii. I got the time. That's how that's how flare up you pass on the beach in his old ladies waiting for to pay him up. You know, you got to be careful with those Hawaiian layovers Dave said things are changing by the minute. Every minute. Listen. So I love Meltzer. Hey to quote, Vince McMahon, granddaddy events show me the stone. I was nothing is set in stone. I wish no ill upon anyone. But it it was for my benefit that Michael was unable to make the dome because that meant Yuji Nagata was in there in in that match. I love blue Justice. He also him an ec- shit. Dash they're saying was hot belts assay. And that program is for the state's. Oh, yeah. If that winds up the globe. I will they're going to who knows maybe maybe wind up at the garden who knows, but they are saying kids, listen to the sound of my voice in the words that are coming out. They say they're going to be releasing more tickets for the globe theatre for new Japan. Pro wrestling. When that happens. Tweet at me nonstop advance. Just when you hear something tell me, okay. If somebody's got a ticket for me can't believe him refunding gone. You don't have to do anything. Vince. You don't have to go anywhere. But I'm going to be gone for PWG, hopefully, it gets to the garden stamp tickets. And all of a sudden, I look at my counted put it in. I'm going to try to celebrate you while I'm there, you know, that I appreciate lift you up man, your absence, man, this is this is why we're, you know, whittled down to the two of us that really is it really does feel like flair and Arn Michael and -tarian, and and especially like the Dudley's the the amount of Dudley the Dudley brothers that there were than it. Just you know. Like, we're we're Lanny puff o said. Like Lenny Paphos said Benjamin Franklin said. Time will tell and shit will smell but water will always find balance. I think together we are Kevin von Erich. You're the right foot on the left foot. That the opener Bucci versus off spray. What any thoughts on the pre show? That was good. And like I say I was glad that Nakata was in there. Big time was match could match that fucking arkie. Oh, yeah. Losing his mind. They need to start doing you two videos of best. The best friends are fine. I'm going to be very upset. I'm going to have to burn my Greg in Dustin forever shirt. Didn't they already break up and get back together? Oh, you say in there. The new Sasha and Bailey. Not hardly Osprey and a Bucci, which you know, Osprey the whole thing that I heard the wrestler of twenty nineteen. Well, I mean, he's I'm back with spray, you know. And I like the one guy on commentaries like Osprey says he's no longer going to be the flippy dippy guy. Yeah. Interesting because he and this is a line that said more than once he goes people wanna meet to work style that wouldn't take years off my career. So I'm going to work a style that takes years off other people's that's how I'm into it. Yeah. And that was that match like they start really quick. And then it was just a fucking knock down drag out. I was awesome. What a fucking shot to the back of the head several times in that match. I set out loud. Oh, you can't do that. Man. Yeah. It was great. That was really good. I'm sure coda Bucci. I don't know. I don't know if his name is on the dotted line anywhere. But at probably never will be that guy hates contracts. He's allergic to him. Yeah. It's like an MCI. The is the MCI. He didn't wanna do it. Yeah. Man that was that was a standout match to me. The opener of the show was was such a great man and set the tone for the night and it set the bar. I don't mean Antonio and sees are knows we are the bar. Goddamn, though that fucking KOTA Bucci. What can he not do? This is hide from apparently write his name on a. He's got to be showing up all the at some point think he doesn't give a shit KOTA Bucci. He don't give a fuck. No Koto bushy gives a fuck. Give out. Oh, oh, I. Bushwick is KOTA pushy. Don't give a book. Well, Osprey every title, change dance. That was not expected. I don't know if I'm that's one of those things KOTA bushy lost and new Japan isn't necessarily losing him because they never had him sister. He's the he's the greatest free agent and professional wrestling since macho man, Randy savage. It's right. You know since. Lar- sullivan. Oh, God is so big. Issue. Chase owens. You know, I heard him on the dash say new year new chase. I'm saying will then please do something brother change something full the charter. Hey, something anybody can find their way. That's for sure. That is the one thing professional wrestling has taught me and taught you definitely. Since last. We spoke the suburban fight. Wow. Did that shit? Go viral. Hey kids do do do do do. Do. You heard it here. I k- man. Lotta of people upset a lot of people are very good good. Art should get a deep reaction from people. That's right. No light tubes were used. I mean, give me a fucking break. Oh, a tampon is too far. Now gimme a comma. It's a fi- people have been hit over the head with fuck and frying pans. Mick Foley, stick a sock and people's fucking marrow's. Yeah. The business is what the business is in the fact that that shit went viral speaks to the speaks to the truth that it was a great spot. It got people talking and buck in she's already Priscilla cell fucking merge. You know, you know, I mean, I'm paraphrasing. But I also saw that the guy who does know ring matches in New York was like I just want. Everyone to not not be confused at this happened on one of my original, the original, no rain and Madison suburban it was like nine confused or not. Gimme a fuck and break the bit. You wanna know you wanna know when the business was altered forever. It's when toots Mont stood him up and said run around. Okay. All right kids. Fucking grow up grow up shoot him into the ropes. Fuck in the second. Some mother fucker ran into the ropes and ran back to a man who was just standing there. In a simulated fight gorgeous, George used to have a man servant with a can of Florida air that he would spray because fucking gorgeous, George couldn't stand the way that your shitty town smelt. Okay. And guess what? People bought television sets in the nineteen forties to watch him. Do it. Grow up. Let me ask him in. This is the business that we're all in Yoshi how she looked a little grey to me. He didn't look. Well, he did look gray. I don't know maybe part of the rehab or whatever you can get out in the sun at all. I loved I love not saying about a guy not having tan either. I'm just saying looked great. This look. Unwell while his hair. Certainly was great. Yeah. But that was purposeful. He looked. He didn't look psyched to be back. He almost looked frightened. I love that. They announced the card that it's a mystery to everyone and then the ring announcer runs down the card in Japanese. And I don't know totally what he saying. But I can hear names that I recognize and that cork and halls reaction to the name Yoshihashi. I was like oh fuck. Oh, wow. No Kevin Kelly killing it on the fucking play by play on the ones and the twos. Definitely always. And you know is dirty John callous out leaving with Kenny. He's in Orlando make an edgier sexier TNA. I mean, what are you gonna do? Total nonstop action. Yeah. Over there, the trivial pursuit channel. I mean. God bless them. I'm sure they're I'm sure they're gonna put on a great show. I already are. I it's like it is one of those things I can't watch everything. And if if it was a little bit easier, I would do it. And that's not an excuse. Or is an excuse. I guess, but it's now I don't have enough you love impact if impacts great. Yeah. I'll get there. Hopefully, but I'm not trying to should on nothing. You know? Hey, man. Matt hardy broke himself got broken. And guess what? We sat down and watched fucking impact Ulli as it. Aired. Yeah. So at eight hard. Give me something I want, you know, Larry, Madison. Yeah. If they didn't tune in if they didn't show up you can have a whole list of fucking reasons why. But the only reason that it is you didn't do anything the fans wanted to see k making sexier make it fucking edgier. I don't give a fuck. I've seen sexy. I've seen edgy is. This a lead into raw. Boy, let me tell you something, dude. I see them like, hey, what's going on Jeanne? Why haven't you? Call me back to well. Also his. What a beautiful video. Yeah. They gotta be putting together a mean Jean collection on the the network. I gotta assume, but it just it felt like, oh, here's an opportunity that it might be hard for people to like get to upset about to put Terry back on TV short because he wasn't needed. Now. The video was a standalone piece, very well done. And then at the end when he decides to like do in a HOGAN Prague and promo. I had my hand over my face like looking through my fingers. I was I felt so embarrassed it was consoling name. A couldn't believe it. Yeah. Well, I mean, I could believe it. But I was just like what are you doing? I love what he's like, you know, I came out here and character because that's the way that gene would've wanted it, dude, he loved nothing more than entertaining. And like he likes go to the bar takes the glasses off. And it's just like this is just a oh, man. Fucking where did he start crying? Or where his is already wet Mufid is. I mean that dude is HOGAN that dude is. So entertaining and fascinating. Yeah. Probably for all the wrong reasons. But I mean just him role in just the lime machine this is. And this is pre and word Gawker HOGAN that brought it to a whole new depth of just God this fucking guy wearing the same wig as the chick from the fan. It's unbelievable. I really. Would she to Janice? I believe Janice. You know, something Zoot can you can you hook me up with your hair person? Can you picture that brother? Yeah. Rory Alice shining up Dallas, can you imagine if if he somehow becomes like the authority figure he's like on every? Let me explain to you do. I mean, it's just at some point. He's they're gonna wind up in a town with him on TV and people are going to turn on it. You know, they're like, Terry. Do you want? We can we can have any shirt, you want ready for is like, I got it brother. And then he just rolls up in that iron on letter fucking shirt. That's a Gino mania. You know, what that's a reference to is. But in Everett segment of all time, man, which is awesome. But I don't know, man. I maybe I'm looking for reasons to get after all the hard. You don't have to look hard. Have to look very hard. You don't even have to look. It's right there in front of your face all of h h all of h never buried anybody in my life, dude. Forty five minutes Tana Ashi back on top. Where he belongs. I love the Kushida 's last match is going to be against Tonga Hashi non-title. Oh is that happening? That's at. I think it's new beginning. Oh, yeah. But also more than one show. I think okay, but on one, but I think whatever that is it's doing like Tana Ohashi and J Y. Yeah. I think it's like she does. But Kushida last night. I think is that. That's how does that question will the little kid in the freaky Kushida mask could be there? That was Durbin. Wow. That was way too realistic looking dude that was like that move that horror movie FX was horror movie action. Yeah fantasy but it did you see the press conflict. Listen to Matt McCarthy's podcast justifying my movie collection where I watched FX last week. You're not even know that. And not know that that's a riot. And here I am trying to get you over. I watched FX last week Ryan Brown Brian the Bryan brothers to tune in. And find out what we're talking about Brian with Bri. Did you see the press conference with Shida talking about leaving? And then Hashi asks a question. He's like standing there and shot and fuck, and it was like it was some question about like, you know, what what will you remember most something like that? Because she started to cry like answering. Oh, I got to watch the. Where at the end of the dome. I don't know if it was before the dome and the Dr maybe the next day 'cause they're like they're both in suits. So it's not like that's interesting all I saw maybe it was the pre dome, but all I all I saw was at the end of dash when j white does his little press conference thing. And then the picture though, I don't know if it was on the video, but there's this picture of like Tana she kinda smiling. Almost like he purposely tried to get him to like break in a while. Oh, I love it. You know, a little kid looked like at the dome. The video game MBA jam where like the heads would be the body. Yeah. Yeah. It was freaky. That was disturbed truly like like, I don't give it fuck about Priscilla Kelly and fucking tuna. And they're fucking tampons the little kid with the fucking head that that that's killing the business. Okay. You you sort of come out of a slumber about three in the morning and. I mean that's running around your bed. Oh my God. Dude. It's like the little kid from pet cemetery. I'm just like fuck off. Fuck off. Put you down the the are DASS ity of you know. You off. Where are we in this match? Could you off? I'm back on this. Again, the audacity of, you know, first of all it's hilarious to be like, I think this spot is disgusting. And here's the video of it. You know, make sure everyone's. At about. Let me give this is much exposure as I can. That's hilarious. Okay. You know? It's it's it's the you go back a couple of years the Roman reigns thing. It's like we hate him so much we're going to boost letters. We can't. It's like, no that's not how you sit there and do nothing. Right. That's death. And pro wrestling, no reaction in art is death. But do you think that a match that took place any match that ever took place at the hi hat is the reason that w w can't put butts right? It's cackle did is on their TV. Audacity to be like, this is the reason people think wrestling as joke, and it's like no mother thought girl on Monday on Monday, and I'll fucking give you eighteen fuckin- reasons. Okay. Yeah. And that's the first hour. I mean, give me a goddamn break. You're gonna fucking blame them these girls work in their azoff these women working there azoff. But it's okay for you not to to like it or not now that's not for me. But to sit there and killing the business, right? That's that's say two point of finger and say, this is the reason it's like, no, I'm pretty sure the reason is sitting in a room with a fucking dinosaur's skull and Stanford Connecticut. Okay. Wait a second. That's on like a reference to my booking committee room, goddamn, pal. We can rehab. Anybody? Can we have you seen lower SEL? You saw. I watched portions. I mean, it's it's three hours. Not a lot of I was like thinking back. No, of course, not I was thinking back even on fucking in Brooklyn. We we would be sitting down and watching rod shit. What happened? I'd be like wait when the fuck did that happened on the show. Also, maybe due to all the weed wet. You know? Life is washing your little different live session. A little different. But I am. But I ask that because. Were they actively trying to make Braun look like a fucking idiot. He's not cleared. So that was what they came. But I mean that he didn't go after Bronco that that they told him to cut a promo. But the way they did it where they sort of just left him. And it was almost like he will his he had run out of his script. And so then he couldn't do anything but sit there, and then Paul is still just making fun of him. You know, Vince McMahon refers to that as the guy just standing out there holding his unit. Well, and yes and looked it was so uncomfortable, and it did no favor. No for anyone including fucking Brock or Paul Heyman. Even though at the time, it's like, oh, ha ha they're getting over on the sky, but it doesn't do any fucking favors for weather. Alternate goal is. No, unfortunately, the ultimate God. And I guess the ultimate goal is to make me want to watch that match. But all it comes down to is. I wanna watch fucking Yuji Nagata. Fucking Tomohiro Ishii first name. Yeah. Tomohiro? Right. And that's the thing that like pro wrestling is it can be so simple. Look at the dash and look at the number of programs. They just started rice simply doesn't have to be like, no point, dude. Itchy and believe me. I get a kick out of this stuff sometimes. But like, no pointed Ishi kidnap Eugenia, God is son Barry area, the desert break into his house and burn his Christmas tree down and fucking smash all his plates over his head and fuck and put him inside a refrigerator and tipped I it's just it. And it's so much more effective when you're not insulting me. And and honestly, I mean, and of course, you know, we're we're over here touting the I'm celebrating touting our love of of beloved progress. Let too I love all of it. I love WWE WWE for what it is. Which is the people who get angrier the ones who want it to be something other than WWE. Yeah. Hey, it is what it is a best of luck. Hey, there's there's plenty of walls around fee to bash your head into, but I certainly love the promo as a thing that happens in the in the press. Conference and very rarely happens in the ring. And when it does it's it's meaningful. Because right. This fucking stand in the ring shit, which was proven most. Specifically that Braun strowman thing on Monday was just dog shit that being said, I always I'm always up for the rumble rumble is when I eat. Now. Are you talking about the Royal rumble event for you talking about the Royal rumble man inherently I'm talking about the event see because I love the match. I can't follow you just say Royal rumble. And I can't understand what you're saying. Do you mean the event? Yeah. Or me in the match, and which match do you mean the men's Royal rumble match at the Royal rumble event or you mean, the women's Royal rumble match at the Royal rumble event. Sure. I'm so confused. There's doctors and lawyers in the audience, but nobody can understand the difference. I'll just make sure that I'm in front of my TV by about one o'clock on that Sunday. So that I don't miss. God. I mean, I was there when that happened when Vince was like, oh, God, you gotta you gotta specify if it's the roar of a match of the rubble event. And then when like Paul Heyman is running down fucking Strom and nothing takes me out of it more than and at the Royal rumble, pay per view of vent. It's just like, oh, my God, the word pay per view orient plies event word Royal rumble is the name it's called the show the Royal rumble event than instead of the Royal rumble match the match is also an event. It's just it's it's so simple. It's so simple. I'll see you at Royal rumble. Got it. He means the pay per view. I'll see you in the Royal rumble got it. He means the fucking match. Yeah. It's so insane. It's it's this is all coming from the same. Diseased mind that's there's what's not a belt. It's a championship. They're not wrestlers. They're superstars it's not the. Audience. It's your. Vinnie MAC, I love you to death. I am going to miss you. When you're gone, we're going to look back on these years and laugh and be like, can you even believe what has happened remembered? You'll leave. Oh, could you believe in Okada? Jay white. That was also a good match. Jay, wait. I like Jay white. I don't know that he's had the star making performance yet. He's he's he's glimmer. Yeah. He's I know he's got it in them. Yes. He he's he's on the verge of finding it. Yeah. And everyone that has been put in that position has found it. Yeah. Devitt he's in the right place. He's in the right place to have it. And I mean specifically as the leader of the Bullock club. Yeah. And and as leader of book club, it was made all the more apparent at New Year's dash of the depth problems in new Japan pro wrestling when when bullet club came together, and I was like, oh my God. God this is bullet club. Now, you know. And don't get me wrong. Bullet club is fine. Bullet club is fine. But there is there is a, you know, is it time for something else. I don't have the answers. I'm very curious to see where it goes do they need new members? Do they need at what they need do they need? But the point is prince Devitt. AJ styles. Fucking look no further than the former Lord ten Cy giant Bernard. You know, Albert Albert formerly Albert then John Bernard then Lord ten Cy. It's fucking like when we went to those new Japan shows eight years ago nine years ago now coming up, I was like I can't believe that's the same guy. I love that. He fucking founded. Right. You know? Yeah. I think, you know, a little more about superheroes and things than I do even even fucking Luke gallows. Sure, you know. No. I mean, Galveston Anderson. I I only want more of those guys on my TV at this point. You gotta watch the all right? The don't tried it just it doesn't have that Matthew charm doesn't. I mean, I like those guys that just I was like, okay. This is like I can't I don't wanna watch bunch of trip and falls in this format. But. Those masks that Tammy tongue in them are wearing our those like unique masters at like an iron man helmet. What is that? I guess those are unique. I've okay, they're weird. But you didn't recognize them as coming now from? I mean, it does it look similar to iron, man. It's got a guess more of a skull thing to it. And I love that. He can turn the is on. But so then it's interesting to me like where do you get something like that? I gotta figure that's custom-made wherever jerick got his lighter than where you get it. Yeah. Where do you get a main? I don't know where do where do you buy a ring ring gear? How do how do you dot com? Fucking hot spots dot com. Goddamn wrestling network over there, you need a ring spots y'all need a ring got a call them on the fucker at empire. Wrestling federation. You get your fucking Ranjit. Get Jack started now man now he's already running the ropes Glenis. It's a wrestling ring. It's in the backyard, don't worry about Glenis a lot of people got their start in the backyard. The Hardy's the punks come on the Foley's backup. Now, Jack, let's work on moon salts backup. He's not good at the moon, Saul yet, he is he is gonna fall on his head. He's giving gimme a hundred more squats Fabi. Maybe he's three years old his bump card. It doesn't have a punch in it. Let the kid work. We got a Callus in cautions. Don't even count till you're. Ten or twelve his brain isn't totally developed. What what will it can get a concussion to come on? We gotta work up. Call that flat back. We gotta strengthen on his back. What was that kid? Hercules, remember that on Howard Stern little Hercules. Oh, God that was disturbing. I was so upset. Yeah. I bet there's some fucking modern day picks of little hurt. See we ended up probably had of stunted growth. Maybe he's the Kushner kid, maybe he's got like a man sized head with a little tiny baby moved moved to Japan to get a little privacy. And I think at one point during the Tokyo dome. I said e she looks like a potato with four toothpicks stuck in him. You she let's see if there's a little Hercules Becker. Yeah. Canny and fucking Taha. She tore it up and left it all in the ring modern day little hurt. He looks like a regular, dude. All worked out for him. He looks like chase Owens, actually. No, no, hold on. He looks like chase Owens delete delete our lis lis our leave. Yeah. Man that and you know, the other thing I'll say about a to the observer go up yet. I think melts gave it more than five stars. He had to he's he's hinting at that. No. I don't think. So. But you know, however, long that show was had to be at least five hours. Right. I think it was less really. But. No like didn't feel now. It's like no intermission either. Yeah. There is no drag man such a great great show. I mean, Cody juice. They they they had a great match. It's yes. Like an felt like a little bit of an afterthought it celebrities. It's tough to compete. Well, a lot of a lot of the undercard didn't get a lot of time. And and I will say to that the the J white juice match that we saw San Francisco's one of my favorite matches leaned tire year. Yeah. Yeah. I like juice whatever whoever that Jay white was he had founded that night. Yeah. You know, and not even having to fuck in boot J JR over on his ass. Right. Either. You know, but I mean, just just a pure despise -able. He'll is despise -able. A word was that in display. San Francisco was at the pyramid. Anyway, I was at the cow palace. Yeah. That was the new Japan show because JR and when he couldn't punch him, right? Right. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. He had the he had the the cast was what like old school, simple brilliant, storytelling a fucking great booking of the match. And then finally gets what he has come into him. It was beautiful thing of beauty. Yeah. I mean, what's fuck got got his ass. Probably fired over it. What's JR and oh Abba, Meghan Barnett? Yeah. That played out. So well, I was like man that was smart of them to book that by some time. And then was like, oh, no he went into business or himself and ghettos furious or whoever enough it's too bad. She and actually junior. Would it be hilarious? If it turns up cornet loves the fucking spot from suburban fight. Well, we already know that he doesn't at least publicly, you know. God damn I gotta say that was fucking brilliant. In the context of that whole match though, there was some it. It didn't come from out of nowhere. There was cheered aurea stablishment. Like, I'm going to go down down my pants. I'm gonna slap you, and then it was like, you know, we call the action, and I was like she's really digging around in there then journey off. It was horrifying. Yeah. The other thing of it is I, you know, I'm willing to go out on a limb and say, I don't know that it was at actually, oh, I don't think I think it was to work. I think it might have been a work. It'll work. Which is fine too. You know, what you don't want watching that ton Ohashi Kenya? Mega. I don't think they were really wrestling each other. They may have had some discussions backstage link. I don't know just passed between the two triple h climbed into a coffin and had sex with a mannequin. Okay. I mean, let's all fucking relax. Can we not split the hairs of? I mean. If you don't like the chocolate ice cream vanilla you know, relaxed thing man, there's just there's so we're living in such a wonderful time of more pro wrestling than you can possibly consume. That they got everyone everyone's eyes on that product. It isn't that all what it's all about. Yeah. Did we when we went into that night? We were ready to have a great night at suburban fight pro wrestling, and we did and we fucking did. They did the best fucking show that they've done yet and shit went viral. What are you gonna do? Yeah. What are you gonna do you better? Get your tickets. Yeah. Quicker next time. Let's say let's see how many people show up to the I hat next time. If tumbleweed blows through the writing they were in the wrong, if people are standing outside with fucking, you know, sandwich boards and fucking, you know, protesting. Yeah. Then well, then that's still might not be an issue. But if people don't buy tickets, then it'll be and I don't think that's going to be how about the, you know, I can't believe Priscilla Kelly and tuna caused WWE to not be able to sell out Madison Square Garden the day after Christmas. You know? It's just they're killing the business the yeah. The the the tickets for the the baseball park in Arizona for the row rumba or not tracking. Like, they should you know. Well, you know, Darby talked your old lady. Okay. Got a la- pro wrestling. I really do. It's so fucking good. But so it's great to me. You know? So the dash such a fun show. It's just a bunch of Suzuki just fucking dismantling ally. Jay says Zouqi back that chair. Oh, my God that opening chair shot. He broke the fuck and chair with night head. God. You can't do that. No. Let's shouldn't wasn't. It's the guy who drinks half a bottle of whisky on the way to the ring to Maru. Yeah. I think he was the one who fucking waffle with it. I mean, he fucking waffle them with it. And we we haven't even mentioned night on fucking Jericho at the dope. Oh, right. Forget about it to that fucking DDT on that table. Was one of the most incredible things. I have yet seen unreliable upside down on the top of his head quickly vertical. And we're looking at right down just that one hand on the guardrail and that made the fucking match. I was a hell of a match. Yup. I just love this. You know version of Jericho the brawler the brawler the fucking the the the Alice Cooper face brawler. You know? Yeah. It's great. Yeah. So we'll I mean, I guess that's another question. Mark. What's up Jericho Jericho was out? What's up with Jericho Jericho? Is to her in the new year. They're just playing with iron maiden down here at the soccer stadium in LA. And that's the only show only what case it corbin's favourite Fozzard sowing as case get at us, man. Casey. Let us know. What's your favorite song? He was kind enough to purchase in the mail off a fuzzy shirt for gnarly Zach. Yes. Oh, and thank you for my VHS copy of hitman Hart wrestling with shadows big direct from Canada. What if it'll work in my VCR also so much has happened since I've been to the PO box. But I don't remember if I gave a shout out to whoever sent me those magazines with the the Cyndi Lauper and the the Broussais Martino megs, but shoot me a message. So I can give you proper shot out shot out your name. But I mean. It's it's the cover of like Bruno San Martino he had his neck broken by STAN Hanson, traction traction. And then the next month is Bruno's back three comeback in sports history. Like legit broke his neck guys legit. And then he's back like. Yeah. Muscles fucking muscles hard work and oatmeal. I kick myself daily for not buying that shirt. When it was on Bruno Sammartino dot com. I thought you were gonna say I kick myself daily for not having to hide in the mountains from the Nazis for a period of time to touch me. But. I mean, watching siblings die in a mountain while your mom's sneaks down to the village to steal food for you. Yup. Maybe maybe Bruno and apparently Bruno visit he went to his mother's house and visited with her every day of her life. Fuck name in mama's boy, and he still making towns sly him a proud this. This this ready Cyrus the slime this this. Where's the GPO? Where's the hot to approve little mustard on? My favorite part of that. If you really watch that when Bruno turns on, savage savage for second deal you talk about. Right before jokes. What is your brother like excuse me, sir? Melter said so that ghetto is the only one who knows his booking works. Totally alone. Writes, everything himself uses a note book, nothing is on a computer specifically so cannot be hacked or leaked or anything. He books two years out. Wow. Keeps it in like a Samsonite that's handcuffed to his wrist. I mean. Fucking mcmahon. Can't even book two days out. That's impressive man, two years out. And then something happens. Somebody leaves somebody gets hurt. Yeah. He figures it out fucking. Amen. That's huge. Jerry Lawler used to book at that morning. She would show up a half hour before Memphis TV and just be like, okay, we could do this too. I mean, whatever works whatever works who who do you who do you think is going to win the Royal rumble? And who who would you like to see win? The doesn't matter. I wanna see Becky Lynch when the women's rumble. The men's rumble. 'cause we gotta figure what is it mean a shot at Leser or Braun excuse me. Yeah. It might be Braun. Matt it could be Braun. He home. Better. Get ready for a big spoonful stroganoff my man, who who do I expect to win it. Roman reigns. For all we know. He could be back to Laura role raids. Scott Scott on sweet. Bob. Might be Rawlins. That's one thing. It might be Rollins. I would love if it was Finn. You came out of like a bat outta hell on Monday dollar, no doubt. But I mean, he's I don't trust them with him as far as I could throw fit ballor. You know, what I mean, I feel like odds-on for me is it's Rollins or McIntyre very well might be lar- solo. You know? You know, I think LARs in the spot is going to come in like throw twenty people out or whatever. And then I mean, it's it'll take the last ten to throw him out or whatever the fact of the matter is this it's going to change forty eight times before January twenty so that when the rumble is, and then it may change after that's right. Not mad. We have Ramos stereo win. The sing we gotta get out of this. We gotta get this on Randy. Yeah. The ram, man. He's a bit of an afterthought. He's in the night. Oh spot. Yeah. But it's like. Yep. Totally. But I mean at the same time does ran to give shit. We'll know. But brandy. I don't think rainy would care if he was like, I don't think Randy would care if he was fired. He would he would fuck and throw a party. Oh, you mean, I can get unemployment. Finally spent some time flying drone I got for Christmas. Popa Greenwich Village was that the new Beverly this weekend? Can you fucking believe that man Popa Greenwich Village and Donnie Brasco, I'm just waiting fucking cop. TMZ we've got Randy Orton come on the Beverly. Rainy, rainy what? What's going on? The focus Goran. The fuck do you want? He's the he when they talked to him before the Saudi Arabia show. He was like doing the whole me. I don't know how you FEC change from. This you go in what fucking loaded didn't even let women live in the country. And so we came the first. Before WWE ran in Saudi Arabia. They used to just, you know, eat babies, and you couldn't vape there till the last time I want, you know, I should over the vape pen in the crown prince's Fook is that where was like take a hit of this fucking thing. He took a poll and he's like, oh my God. It's called up mobile hookah, my friends, it's a it's like a hookah and a computer my who computer. Http euchre the fuck out of my face. The fuck out my face, you're the fucking crown prince communal where a crowd he didn't know what the fuck to do with that. I can't wait to go back.

Nobody fucked with me. Walked around. My ring gear. Can you imagine Jesus? Nobody tried to stone me. Fogging? I was in my ring gear. I was in my my I had a hookah computer around my neck. Kicking a soccer ball kicking to Saad said shit shit to me fucking. I didn't see rob van dam there. He was probably the most stone person I've ever met. Fuck you. Produce. None of that. We'd should just wipe produce. And then cut to like Brooklyn brawler just being like, all right? Randy can we go again, he's just doing pre tapes. But he's just like. This is what he's saying in in the fun to go back and look at like when Randy would get in trouble for smoking weed in the building. Oh my God. When he liked destroyed the hotel room and got sent home and when he was just like a fucking problem child. And then he just transfers like what if I don't don't just don't give a fuck. Maybe I can just do it that way. It's I I mean, what what I don't. It'll never. I mean, he's tall. He's good looking and he can fuck and go, but I mean, who cares? You know, the they have protected that fucking guy and the in the shit that like you just said that he used the poll it's just like God. It's just it makes me think of life of Brian when the guy in the in the hanging from shackles just like all they must think the sun shines out of your as and he may or may not have, you know, pulled a stick out in front of new writers and handled it and then demand Akshay. We don't know to do was not my experience. That's for fucking sure. The point being Randy is a very important being on plex. Randy's can't use his punt kick. Yes. You know? And it's been a point of contention for some time. Now, you know, you try so so you so you tell me that bronze Stroman can flip over an ambulance. Brechin? Use my punt kick. Ran. Where's Randy at manual? I mean, I mean honest to God. It's Randy Orton. It's just fucking filler, dude. It's just filler. Yeah. He there's so much what the thing that I've said it before like, it's it's like him seena. There are those guys who got made initially in the way that that a guy can maybe should get made right core. Now, he's he just has he's bulletproof. Yeah. And he can and he can get rehabbed at a moment's notice because it's not gonna take much. But in the meantime, he's straight mid card. Oh, yeah. Carrying the mid card. I don't know. I mean, maybe they'll just keep going with this. Jeff hardy, Ramos stereo nakimora. Like, you know, I don't know. Let's just put all four of them in there. Right. You know who knows? Knows man Stroman. Fuck it less ner bay. Maybe it's maybe they just, you know, bring Kenny right in Kenny AJ, that's one match at mania then. And then. That's right. You heard it here. Do do do. I. What if it's it's they're still out a match Kenny vs AJ. I fucking ballor about that. I drink your milkshake. I remember when they pulled the trigger for no reason. Like, I forget somebody got hurt or at the leave or something. Somebody got sick. And they just threw together AJ versus Finn ballor with no build. No, nothing that he liked. They flew him. Was that the one where they don't back from somewhere? I remember the circumstance out. I mean, it was just first time ever ever ever anywhere. Googlers just throw together who gives a fucking shit too little guys when it just happens to sell more Merck's than the other rights what these two guys that can't draw are neck and neck, selling merch Gaza.

He's got those big is Bobby Lashley, and I looked into his big beautiful eyes. I said, Bobby. God, you're fucking huge. I think it's going to be Bobby Lashley vs. Lars Sullivan, the main event wrestlemainia forty eight minute match. How long was Kenny and Tana hushing forty seven minutes. We're going to do forty eight minutes. Oh god. Promo baron, something too tall. Something tells me doesn't refer to it as Kenny and Tana she but.

Oh, Kenny O mega while we're gonna do that. But better here versus there should have been there should both be bald. Well, the ratings suck looks like I have to come out of the mothballs fucking save everything. Is the mania where Lashley Numata? Yeah. That's still the the the biggest buyer eight or whatever it was like held some record. Yeah. It was some record because I'm sure he's. I was hemming Trump you. Yeah. But I'm sure he's going. Well, Bobby main of ended the. Yeah. It was all Bobby. Everybody knows all Bobby. I mean, he was he was the draw. Boy was that Twenty-three wanna say sounds, right? That was in Ford field Detroit. I flew back from New York for it. The only mania you know, what I think it was just leading up to it. I mean that was a that mania itself was big. But like one of the Roz leading up to it was like the highest rated rar something because then they they did like the angle they did the gimmick where Trump paid for all the commercials. So it was a commercial free, raw or something. I mean, whatever it was. It was like. I mean that was a mania. I like, I didn't even watch. I didn't even watch that Manian. That was the first mania that I didn't watch like in my life. Oh, you know. I mean, my recollection is that match was was fun, especially the outcome. Austin them. But then there was there was another. There was two matched on the show that I liked I think they did cactus Jack. And yes, but I'm thinking it was Shawn Michaels and. But stone or was it? Shawn Michaels, and maybe or seen it. One of those Sean Sean omit was seen. It was at sina and MS. Let's go to the tape here now seen it. No, no, no CNN, MS was twenty seven. But I also remember from the went whatever, Sean and sina was I watched that mania alone in queens. That's that's that's also the first weekend where they did. Like, I remember ring of honor had shows, and they also did a hall of fame. That's like when I think Lawler went in because once you get into twenty four then you've got Sean taker. Ooh, collie and cane that was a biggie. Boy, Ben WADA's MVP. Oh boy. Oh, undertaker Batista that that one was good. And then they had it was seen as sina Michaels. And I just remember then I did then I take it back. I did watch that man. Someone someone hit the ring like right before the match started. So I remember like Michael's just pulled up on the ropes in the corner was just like I'm not fucking doing anything until everyone fucking chills. Back a fan. Yeah. Fan, right. Yeah. All that's right. And then you got to see old Sean being like like fuck you fuck in pieces shit. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Like, I. What's the maniac didn't want was it? Was it the SkyDome one? That was kind of a SkyDome was one was twenty two would have been was it big time. Big big, Tom. I'll mama way. Because. Yeah. Yeah. Because twenty was back in the garden Twenty-one was goes Hollywood. So twenty two big time. I don't think I watched the only two that was at the Rosemont said that was the one with that might have been the one with which which would had edge in and cactus. That one. Yeah. And foley. And and and it speaks to like it look at it. Look at it for what it is. They were at the fuck in Rosemont horizon for wrestlemainia, and I didn't give a shit my favorite wrestler. Maybe even of all time. This was. Boogeyman Facebook t on that one. And it was seen a triple h right? Michaels mcmahon. Oh my God. Dude, stereo Randy Kurt sina triple h on. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I could not have given less of a ship. I remember being at the best buy and having that DVD in my hand and going am I really just going to buy this just because I always buy wrestlemainia on DVD? And then being like, I feel like a fraud for having this because I didn't I didn't even watch it. I don't care about this one. But I have to have it because otherwise, my wrestlemainia collection will have all the charm of smile. Missing tooth. Yeah. You know? And then then I pulled because even the the Trump mania I watched a loan and was just like not interested in the week to week product at all, right? But was like well fuck you. I I'm ordering this paper when I'm watching it in the living room of this house that I'm living in and if you guys don't wanna watch mania, then too bad, but seen a Michael's was really my main interest. But then by twenty four we rock and roll rolling. We were on the Rhone. I mean that that was twenty four would have been twenty four was edge and undertaker. That's what that one was. I think okay. Oh, twenty four was Sean and Rick probably. Right. Tricky. Rick. Yeah. Because then twenty five was was Sean taker and then twenty six was Sean taker. God. And then once we're in and then then once we're often running twenty-seven sina, MS rock comes back. They build that up for a year twenty eight I worked there twenty nine punk. And and take her thirty New Orleans Daniel, Bryan thirty one where their the house thirty two snow in April when we're over there all night, very well might be packs more close man might be. I might have to bring to sweat shirts. It's it's mania season. The road. Terresa mania begins at the Tokyo. Yeah. They better bring back Mike Tyson or something. I mean what rating it's it's one of those things where it's just like they have booked themselves into a corner where it's just an and what the fuck today care. They they they made this insane deal with FOX they keep grabbing all the short term money. The they got a couple of streams of revenue, you know, they don't give a fuck. It's not like it's not like Vince is sending those like Email blue mountain greeting cards to Austin. You know, being like love to have you. Steve, right. I don't know what the hell. They're going to be able to do at this mania. But somehow McMahon always manages to do something. I bet does Batista comeback. Do they finally pull the trigger on Batista hunter? I thought that the issue with that might just be that triple h peck might not be fully operational. That's a fair point. I don't know. I think that's haven't Connor hasn't called me back. Hunter has called me. Hi, it's Matt again, just wondering. Boop. Hey, what's going on? I know that you're expecting it to be Terry. But it it it is Matt I got the edible arrangements. Thank you. But I would really love to talk to you. I would just love to know how you're feeling and do you need me to run a couple jokes by see if they're funny? You know, let me know if you know, I just want you to know that I don't think it's funny. I don't think it's funny enough to be on raw. Yeah. No. But within a month or two, I'm sure I'll be sitting here going like, oh man this mania card. I can't wait for this. I can't wait for that. Because that's just too. I am. For all we know Kenny Omegas in the main event, you know, I it it. It seems in the words of gorilla monsoon highly unlikely. Yeah. But stranger things have happened in professional wrestling. The fact that AJ styles and fuckin-. Nakimora somehow end the club for that matter those guys somewhere around a poolside area in Greenwich. So tell me what omega. So the fucks going on with your hair. I'm not even sure what colored is I don't want this to be video game thing. I mean, even even Kenny omega like people forget. But when he suddenly was you know, AJ's out KENNY'S the leader Bullock club. It was like all right. Let's see how this plays out. And if that's not the way, you remember it. I'm sorry. You are wrong. You are miss remembering history. Okay. And and j white let's see where it goes. Yeah. Okay. Chase owens. Let's see where it goes. Okay. You love him. Anybody can figure it out. Yeah. Well, let's also hangman fucking page in thinking about a year ago at this time where we talk about white where's hangman page. You're gonna go. We're talking about the scale of his body russert talked about how he had the body that sort of looked like a little person's body. Or was that just me? But in thinking about mania to we have to remember that imminent mania to Bundy. The LA sports arena to Kogyo Long Island. Imminent returns of Kevin Owens, and Sam uses AIn who else is coming back off the shelf in all these new people that they just keep jamming together with one big. That's right. Video pack Lacey. Not lacy Peterson shoes the one that was murdered. Right. Some ways grab your wife Lacey Evans. Yeah. You know, what's what's your name from sanity? She's awesome. Yup. Cross naked cross.

The the war hammer the war the hammer Justice will strike you down. Yeah. Whatever it's it's it's again, it just it's like, Mr. blaster. Everybody's great. But it's like, look, I know we know Vince McMahon we know what he response to. And so we know why certain people are well. Does he even know that Johnny Gargano works for him? You know, if he's Saul if he's saw Adam Cole in the hallway of his arena, he'd be like toe that low local indie guy that I want him to. Why is he not dressed like a security guard? Yeah. Can we get can we get some of these guys back over to the studio there should be cutting videos? I don't know what. I mean, if he's the fucking what are they called the the legacy?

I told you the the toilet. That's clogged is in that Japanese guys hotel room is she? He's also short can't draw these guys they can't draw. I do like the fact that they have this Yuji Nagata guy. He's old. So clearly, you gotta bring him out of the moth balls. I heard he was on nitro. You know, Ted Turner. So you can suck my dick. You know? I don't care if Ted has dementia.

You know, we don't test for Decca here Terry, we can come on into my office. We'll we'll we'll do each other. I mean in the office will just for there's nothing in the syringes. We'll just jam each other's asses. Just for a laugh tear come on rip them, we can talk. However, we wanna talk in here. Let's let's run through a first draft of no-holds-barred to what do you say what where is rip in twenty nineteen? You know, that's what that's what all the people have been asking you're going to be sick. You're gonna throw up. There's a video camera in the corner. Don't have sex with my wife, you think Jimmy was with him last night, Jimmy Hart. Absolutely. Yeah. She ran Feigen the nasty boys. -absolutely? Hey, hulk, should I come up there too? We we always something to eat after this. Let's go to repair steakhouse. Wait where are the state's halt? We'll see at the cream puff out. The great buffalo. It's an Irish bar knobs and sags which one of I I'm not even sure. Just no I don't like to stand up. Stand up dad. The protas. Patch it up. I'm sorry. Hey, what's going on, Vince? Okay. Here's a list of demands. Terrier? Oh, garbage. Can oh what do you do the dumpster drowsy put put Jimmy and knobs in a motel six adjacent to wherever? I'm staying. I mean, they probably videotaped it. You know, you know, oh, Terry's big return. I'm sure it's going to be on the fucking network is, you know, the speech he gave to the fuck and boys about careful about social media, which really was that ever the issue. Yeah. And then him in Vince having their one on one. Maybe they need to reshoot that he can just say don't say fucked up shit. No matter what. Whether anyone's listening reading or not just don't say fucked up shit. Yeah. How about examined the person that you are on the inside? And may be examined. Why you feel a certain one step back? Don't think fucked up shit. Yeah. Don't be fucking prick. And if you cannot be a racist one on top of it super-duper super-duper pooper-scooper, miss you. Bubba miss you everyday. Oh my God. Punt all the love sponge. The first time. I, oh, there's there's this guy in the road named Bubba. The love sponge like, you know, he's going to ruin everything somehow some way or another not just DJ names. Who doggy? Didn't get smacked on this week many apologies. You know? I mean there was. All elite rally happening literally next door. Where's Julie Jacobson all this? He's working for callous at impact. James now, they gotta bring him in. What's going to happen? I mean, there is an it. Believe me, this is not the same thing. Because ring, Yvonne, or new Japan all elite are in a much better position than in the late eighties early nineties whenever it was when when those guys tried to all come together to to deal with Vince with the US W A or whatever that was supposed to be the right? The crumbs that were left from world class and Memphis or whoever else. I mean, the fact of the matter is they also they weren't just dealing with. Vince, they were dealing with Turner. Sure. No. Well, and I think also you've got new Japan operating a little differently with their new management because they're doing multiyear contracts. Now, they're finally fucking wise and up like we can't have guys leaving every year after the dome. Right. An and so it, yeah. It's gonna down to like who. Who can all eat fill the roster out with because what does that look like they need bad guys? Then he guys they need guys. But they also they need a top heel. Yeah. You know? I mean, what's what's Chuck and Trent's deal? Are they they must be signed with new Japan. Certainly Trent has been. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I've said it before I'll say it again, Alaska PWG. Thank you. Fuck. You by Chuck, I have often said it, and it seems like they're headed down the road of Chuck being, you know, finally turning on Trent being a monster heel. I've often said it Chuck Taylors your top he'll build it around him. Have like he's got his group of guys that he highs behind. He so answer so good at being a piece of shit tough like that Bobby Heenan thing of talking so much shit. And then when the when the chickens come home to roost running and hide it, you know, no doubt. I mean, so fucking good. Chuck people. It's been so long since you've gotten to see some fresh. He'll Chuck Taylor ship mode out because that that piece of shit comedy stuff too of like because you can be funny and still be a piece of shit that I ate. Yeah. I mean, it's incredible. It's incredible. Where's Trevor Lee? Did he sign with somebody? I don't know. 'cause he left impact. The I don't know. I mean will cause that's somebody else. You can be you know, your fucking WGN. Thank you. Bye. I gotta get word with all these guys and find out what's going on. I mean alternately the thing that, you know, if people aren't going to be allowed to fuck in wrestle anywhere else in the states. It's just going to be more opportunity for people to be seeing PWG. But then at the same time, it's like talk about I mean, how like was Keithly even there for fucking year. Right. And then gone Walter's gone. Yeah. I mean Bandido gone. Well, there's you build them up the gone fresh talent coming. There's always that's there's always that's where the cream rises because there's always room. There's always room. Hell, yeah. Every day. Let find an let me know how it goes over there. The globe can't believe I won't be there. Maybe I'll be there. The following week watching them Eugene gotta an e she on that happened on. Oh, no, no. No, no. I think all of a sudden they announced that card Vince is like I got a sore throat. I thought I think I can make this trim to sit this one out. I would be that he used a anyway, you know, what? Oh, my arm smell all of a sudden you throw yourself down the staircase. I got beat up by some guys. That was that tag batch. The three on three. Yeah. That whole that whole fucking match was just stellar. Yeah. Oh my God. Super good. Yeah. Enjoyed all his matches on. But that one was the puzzle stand out for that wouldn't particular crowd was fucking up for that shit. Dude. What's he got kicked in the big? Oh, my God that when he kicked in the back of the head that that that was it was on like Donkey Kong. Holy shit issue should the cow abound. Was like, oh, no, oh my God. That was like and again, he didn't need to fuck and run him over with a car. Need to kidnap his daughter. He didn't need to fuck and set his house on fire put him in the back of ambulance and running off a cliff. He kicked him in the fucking head. Yeah. Fucking dope. Did. Tell you. I don't know, ma'am.

It's on the list we got into the dome. The run on the dome two nights in a row. Fucking dallas. The first night of the g one climax tournament ongoing. Oh, no fucking. You're not allowed me son of a bitch. We're going fucking von Erich country. I'm not going to be their son of a bitch. Bit ugly. Bit cost me out me out. Cuss? You out double cheese, double meat you? Get it. Wrong to kill. Something was your favorite wrestler? My favorite wrestler. So much has happened. You know? Greg the hammer Valentine seems like a safe fat. Always perennially. I mean, I could easily say Tana she again, just because I love Tana. And I love the match, and I'm happy that he's got the strap again. But I think I am going to go with Nagata just because I really enjoyed him being in that opening match and then his his shit on on dash. And of course, I always love I always love you got the blue Justice shirt. You know, what I have queued up that I'm gonna watch before next week is like from a decade ago. Totta Hashi in gotta who. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. If you go through that, you know, there was the special issue of the observer where they put in the whole like all burnt his own dome. Yeah. I know Mike villa was like peeling back through that. And like watching particular matches and can't tell me about him the gotta match. I don't remember who he was wrestling. But yeah, I'm into it. Well, you know, what I wanna find is? And I don't think it's. A new Japan world is that from ten or twelve years ago, Taha she and Suzuki. Which I guess was at the dome. Maybe I don't know. Yemen. Who's your favorite wrestler may Hiroshi Tana Hasha? I went for ace one hundred go ace. I mean, you're right. You're right. That that I mean, the story they told the whole year starting from last New Year's from Suzuki fucking, you know, destroying him the building back up the G one into the fuckin- dome. Yeah. It was awesome. I mean, the paid it off. And now when they paid off with one of the best matches that's ever happened. Now. Now, we see, but that dude is a mother fucking pro wrestler of the highest order, and I'm into it. And sure enough. I mean, I'm saying here's a guy who didn't even think he had enough left in the tank to do one of his amazing tar solos after and he fucking pulled it out he collapsed, but he was able to shred for everybody for at least a couple of moments after that. It was a beautiful thing. It was a beautiful thing. He's got the strap, you know, and I love, you know, in, you know, it was pointed out, we were I think we were already aware, but as pointed out on commentary that his entrance his ring attire. There's a whole missing that. It is the outfit is designed for that belt. And when he walks out there is a hole in him. It is missing he needs that. He's mad. It is it he won in the same grace. And this is a situation to where it doesn't feel like I mean, granted they half that card from the dome is now gone gone. I hope but it doesn't feel like a situation where they're just going back to the well of like, well, we're gonna dust off sina we need help right now. They're there to certain extent. There is a well they're going back to China Hashi. But it's like, but it built over a year. Right. And it wasn't just oh he's just back because they got nothing out. Yeah. I just hope we get to see a legitimate straight up. I w GP heavyweight title match at Madison Square Garden that would be fucking don't. They haven't choice that match is is. There's so much riding on that show is so important. Yeah. It's it's sold the fuck out. Yeah.

Ep. 124: The Jeremy Bearimy timeline of wrestling

"Combines and. Pau. Is no perfect. Wrestling. This is. Ties. Dies. Fruity. Oh, rooty tutti fruity. Oh rooty. That's my gene tribute. And I'm not so one fucking shirt. Welcome to tighten fights the show that discusses wrestling with sincerity and hilarity that it deserves. I'm Halley jelly birthday. Boy, how Loveland today is my day. Which is your birthday, you suck. Why didn't you tell me when I came in and didn't say happy birthday. I'm not the person. Who's like, hey, it's my birthday. Hey, everybody. It's my birthday. I just expect you to know today all about me. That's how deep the ego runs people. And I'm joined today by my fellow members of the nation of conversation. The notorious D A N yell Radford. React furred. Hi, Danielle reentered. How Lizzy calc out it to wait? What what kick out at two. Oh, I see. I see Lindsay Kelco is the I missed it. I missed it. I didn't realize realize what it was. I'm sorry. Gees special guest host of the I can talk K Fe podcast. It's dusk before Sean Merrick. Welcome to tights and fights on. Thank you for having me guys. It's really excited to be here. And I I was I'm pleased to get a Jillian nickname that. They're really makes me happy. Now. I'm just learning. Their other wrestling podcasts than yours is one. So a little bit about your wrestling fandom. When did you start? What are you watching? Now who do you love who who's not your Cup of tea? So I have been a wrestling fan for very long time. I remember watching WWF when I was a boy of six meal HOGAN turned on by Paul orndorff and getting wrestlemainia three on pay per view. And wrestling's always been a part of my mate might just me for forever. I'm always I'm like, the wrestling guy yell when people are like, hey, Sean, who's, you know, who's still alive whose do who's wrestling. Who's this is that I'm the guy they ask about that's just my bible. But I love watching stuff on YouTube. Yeah. I like to find weird obscure matches from stuff in the eighties nineties. I'm just my aesthetic is just like a lot of like random, wrestlers and stuff. So I'm just I'm very very Alva place when it comes to that perfect. You're gonna fit right in. I like it. We have a lot of fun stuff to get into. But let's go ahead and address the red and yellow elephant in the room. Fuck this. I hate to we have to talk about this. I I know we do. So here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna say what happened and then be quiet and then a half hour later when Danielle's done. For the rest of the podcast. WWE brought HOGAN back to pay tribute to mean, Jean Oakland and sell a bunch of his t shirts in setting. They didn't expect him to be booed in. Sorry. I'm just clearing my throat. I I watched a huge. I'm just kidding. My favorite thing. Yeah. Also, very frustrating. For me is watching watching my friends bang their heads against brick walls. Like, I was watching you. You know, you made a very sensible statement about how ridiculous it is that they were like sale on red and yellow shirts. And then some dude who was a wrestler somewhere who I presume listen to the podcast had the Joe retweeted into his time line. Yeah. He tweeted by some folks. Yeah. It was like oh WW like, the they did you watch it completely took up a different point. Just drove me crazy. There was one dude who I guess he was like I hate to have to school someone I'm a fan of and I was. Oh, it's not something. You actually really I will pay money to watch the showdown take place if he would like to arrange that for him. What does that white man say? Just the same. Like, he apologized several tend to hinted Visita, you know, it's the same. That everyone always says what more does he have to give what more does he have to do? It was a racially charged private moment for. I mean, obviously PD pie saying the word while playing a game is trash, but for people to compare a like minutes long diatribe about how much he doesn't want. Black skin touching his white daughter. While also saying the N word and also saying I am racist. And people were like you took it out of context how the taking. I am racist fucking niggers out of context. And then when I show them the context, they're like well. No. But it's true. I had some similar conversations with some delightful people on the internet due to some re tweeting of other people, I think, and it's like honestly got more respect for the people. Like, I just don't care. I love him. Then the people that try and apologize out of it. Make the people who have an issue with it. The asshole just say I got so many messages from people say like you shitting me, gene. You're missing incredible tribute to a great, man. I'm like, yeah. No. I am not lost on me. I'm sad about that. But I'm not. No. And it's like exactly Lindsey just say that you don't care. I don't care whether or not you care, but don't yell at me for fucking caring. I don't care that. You don't care because I don't know you, and there was one dude who was like, I'm black, and I don't care it. I'm like, I don't care and he's like well Booker T wants him back. Why are you addressing that Booker T doesn't speak for all black people might dude? And you would think a black person who's arguing that you should be allowed to have your own opinion that you would understand that if he was even black I did not bother to Google image. Search the the thing see if it was one of those like stolen pictures that they use for folks when they want to pretend to be black on the internet. Ed Norton's character from American history x did mortar repairs image and and to make a tone from what he told her what he did then. And I think it's this is not blame on WWE. But if that's my company, I lay out a very clear like if you ever want to come back here is the path the biggest missed opportunity that everybody has is. Become a lesson. Admit that your lesson learned the lesson. And then each other people exactly and not only that he was like you can put out the apology all day. But if you're spending the rest of your time when you when you're not putting out apologies. Re tweeting people who are calling it stupid retweeting people who are defending you and saying I don't care. I don't care. I still love I still love Hoke like an only focusing on those things and not actually properly addressing what happened. It's not a real apology. How am I supposed to take that seriously? When you spend the rest of your twenty three seven actively going out and making sure that your posting about how much everyone loves you. And how this is stupid, and we should all move on first of all Terry stinks, Tarrant stinks. I call I call him Terrence because hulk HOGAN terrier nicknames and nicknamed her friends and HOGAN is no friend of mine that I just it really frustrates me that we're gonna age of like nobody wanted to be accountable for anything. And I think he should've went ahead and been more countable and been more public about his accountability. And it feels like WWE and the Okocha himself. Don't see it that way. And they kind of put this thing where you know here. He is the tribute, gene. And we want him to we kind of want you guys to remember the good times. But you know, he said these things, and it's just I don't know how they just fresh during or at least not making more of an effort to make him more countable like as yeah. Yeah. House. You said there's a path that should be taken. Yeah. I'll say one last thing before I'm done with the yelling. And this is I think kind of at the heart of it. And why those of us who are so upset are so upset exactly what you said, John. We he was like I was also a HOGAN fan. You guys HOGAN was also a part of my childhood. He was a part of everyone's childhood whether you actively watching wrestling at that time or not all of us were sad. And you know, as as God fucking as the intersection of being a black fan of WWE woman fan of WWE acquire fan of WWE. It's like this isn't me just being angry because I want to be angry. This is like heartbreak, this is this is this thing that has come to represent one of the most beautiful dumb. Awesome ridiculous things that I love in my life. And they are the ones who represent it and time, and again, they are making it clear that they really don't give a fuck about fans like me, and that sucks it breaks, my heart, and that's really at at the end of it. And I it sucks that something that should have been so beautiful and so poor and just like a sendoff for someone who did such a great job in this business had to be overshadowed, by such absolute rash. Why why is it that they had to have him come out to do this when they already had a beautiful video package ready to go? Like, I mean, there's people there's wrestlers that left us, and they didn't do didn't have you know, other legends and people come out to those people did not provide a pathway to sneak that motherfucker back onto Oskar you right? Exactly. I just don't believe there's any other reason for other than that like they just WWE relied upon the grace of the people who would too good of a human to shit on something for me, gene to sneak this Falko back on TV, you know. It's also kind of bogus as the ratings went up. Apparently course they went up. The national championship game. So now, you know that that who knows what that's good proof. Now, that's all they need. He'll be back. That's it. He's back. Now. That's what they needed. They needed an excuse. And that was the excuse. All right. Let's let's let's move on. We all lose our minds. WWE could move on. Let's talk about some things from new Japan. Live in the Tokyo dome. Meltzer, gave what I just said twelve stars the night also appeared to be the swansong for the golden elite slash bullet club in Japan. As the story of the night was them losing their titles. Presumably on the way out see the young bucks losing, the I w g p tag titles who watched I watched you. I watched I got a new Japan world subscription specifically for this. Ninety nine because it's a fable on Amazon fire stick. So I was like it's something that it's been a long time. And I was like hot damn I got my fraternity to to impress my favorite show and talk about this. That's that's a shoot. Yeah. But I'm disappointed to to talk about this. Because I don't want item. Not I have a cursory knowledge of new Japan. I find no the names. I know who people are. But I've never I don't actually get a chance to watch this stuff. So this was a unique experience. Oh, what did you think is your first time watching it? Yeah. As far as I've seen do Japan matches before. But I haven't watched a full show like this like the full eight hundred our show, so. God of wrestling. It's a lot of wrestling. I think we ask a lot of ourselves to watch us patristic sometimes, but it was interesting and the audience just the presentation was great. They have really good camerawork. I think there was some good announcing particularly matches that was it was really good the English announcing. And I don't know if it's stuff that's really like if you took that in place in adobe e that'd be like immediately over, but it something like to see worth being tried. You know, I don't know. I just thought it was fine Lindsay what you think I really enjoyed it. I'd made some snacks. And settled in because it is long. She also ditched out on meet. No, she hurt herself. I did I. Old lady to the gym. 'cause I want to Jack Julian, and I was lifting heavy things. See there on your first mistake. No one's Jack leader. I should've just called Julian amid like, bro. What do you lift all try a quarter on messed up? I messed up put my back out likely old lady the 'em. So yeah, I watch the comfort of the floor of my living room. I couldn't even sit on the couch its muscle relaxant. They would delicious. Which I hope many of the people from the vessel kingdom was saying the following day is she? I really loved it. The Bucci owes fray match was I loved it so much until the end then I was just like please can Bucci leave one much with his Hetata shoulders at love. I was like that was awful. It was because he was out. He was gone, and it was just like. I don't like it. I thought the show was really interesting. I think it was good is going to be such an interesting transition as hell mentioned, it looks like it's the end of well now, we know more, but the end of the elite at least being in new Japan, and then making these huge moves into the US. But so much of the success hair has been based on them having US guys. They've announced all these shows here. And I think this was a great jumping off point for them. But I am fascinated to see how that develops. 'cause if they're going to be without Kenny without Cody without the bucks, it's gonna be a really interesting ride for them. So this kind of felt like that end of an era of the beginning of new one yet. I think it's great that they did take the time to put over like newer talent. Or or other talent hasn't shown as much next. We have on the thing to talk about the juice versus Cody match. And I think that that's again, it's them. I mean, you know, the drill. Sad. But they're looking at I think they struggled because Cody was obviously working injured which I think it was a much needed to be really good. And they were so hampered with what they could achieve physically that. I don't think it was the best match on the card which kind of made me sad because we've moved so far from three stock hokey, and none it was like guest. Choice. Like he's injured. He can't do his expose nice to know that even like an injured, Cody is still at least three star coding. Yeah. Question though, because I this is the first time probably watching Cody match is he do we like him as much as a wrestler or do we like him more as a enterprising individual in wrestling? It is a package to me. I think he is all of it one on its own isn't enough. So I love being the elite Cody I love in ring, Cody as he has gotten so much better. I feel it works with Kenny and working with the bucks lifted his game immeasurably. But I do think he needs all of it to be what he is right now. Yeah. It's kind of I wouldn't necessarily say like jack-of-all-trades master of none. Because like he is really really good at so many different parts of the business. But yeah, I don't think that I agree with Lindsey like it's definitely like you have to have all of that together. Like, he's you know, man, this is going to be terrible comparison, but he's like bread. You know, like you can't just have like the Kansas have the wheat off the chef you can't just eat shit tennis hall. It's you can't just have the eggs if there are eggs and your bread like you need the whole. Together. And then it makes like, you know, a beautiful marbled love of some kind. I don't know how it works. I will say that that dashing Cody Rhodes wasn't a household name. Now in in the wrestling world, he has he has taken on his branding, and and work to sort of push the business in a new direction, at least stateside in a way that very few people can this. What even think they could? Yeah. Team dream that you could do the things that he does just the hook. And also just. Japan was insane. Yeah. That's why I was gonna say the same amount of time. The the amount of time he's been in new Japan. What he is chief is own Cas. How do you go from when he first showed up and people will like hunt, Cody, new Japan. And then like oh goat. He's leaving new Japan is like, oh my gosh. This is my first time seeing juice Robertson do his thing outside of being CJ Parker. And you know, I'm actually glad he doesn't do that buffalo Bill from the sounds of the lambs dance anymore. X t because he's an interesting character. You know, he's he's got great look, and he's just I I don't know if his wrestling is the best. But I mean, he's he's definitely changed. You know? And I'm glad that he's going to be sticking around there. Because apparently he'd just resigned with them. And he's yeah. Hopefully, he'll be more. He'll take over that. You know, some of those spots that are that are open now. Hopefully, they've got some what to do that because they spent the entire summer and the Taiji one burying him like he lost to everyone. And then as soon as he defended his belt he lost that too. So I think they do have some work to do putting him back together. To know, I he has so much potential. I've just wanted to know whether going I'm so interested as to what comes next after all these much great thing when the house clears out a little bit in a bunch of people leave is now it's now it's next person up and you have to build stars you build stars. And even if you're bringing somebody from somewhere else you have to build them. Up in your promotion. I think that that's something that that new Japan has certainly shown the ability to do over the years. It's not like they just put themselves on the map with the young bucks him. Kenny omega Cody Rhodes, they were a good thing too. They have guys like Tanya, she and Okada that are, you know, and Naidoo who are just, you know, topped here workers, you know, that, you know, dick Yetlis. Yeah. You know? So they're there, and they're, you know, I mean, those guys I mean, you, you know, some of these newer talents with these with these guys as thorough. Learn they're gonna get better. That's what show with Cody, you know, and you know, juice, but yeah. Yeah. I mean, obviously, putting it all on Jay white, which is is a big statement to have him. Go over Okada was like I was very surprised where do you think they go from there? I mean, he wanna get it news. Dash the next day in the tag much, like it's like really pretty definitive way. Yeah. He's getting the the big old push. He's he's been rocket strapped to speak in the parts of another podcast that doesn't but. Yeah, it's it's I don't know. I thought it was really interesting. I would love to have a lovely chat with Gedo. And be like what's that all about? I don't know. I'm not the biggest Jay white found. So I'm being I'm being petty. But I see the potential. Yeah. They did a good job with the during this match putting over the story about why he you know, about why Gaito and Jay were aligned how what this meant for Okada and yelling match, and I I don't know if necessarily I'm feeling Jay white. This is my first experience actually watching matches. So I think he's a interesting experiment for some reason. I wrote down sexy. Billy Kidman and leather as a description of him. Man, never going to unseat it. Exactly what his character is. But the same time, you know. I mean, he's he's he's an interest. You know, it's to be interesting to see him on the on the come up. Yeah. They did a good job of of telling a story as to why Okada might be at his full speed. But while still making Jay look strong announces did a lot of legwork on this won't even though it was a great match. I enjoyed what I was really excited. See rain Mako caught a back 'cause much as I've loved crazy 'cause they love the no pants. People need parents. I I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the match. I'm just like, I don't wanna watch Jay white take the place of full my vessel. But that's on me. And I will work through it. Like, you say, I still have China how she on Okada Naito to enjoy so this'll wrestle friends who may no longer be new Japan. Kenya? Mega drops the GP heavyweight title to Hiroshi Tallahassee. We touched briefly. How do you feel? This would rank if if this is indeed his last match part of me feels like maybe he will resign probably not. But it just feels like when when all the reports are definitively say well that was his last match. I always automatically trained as a fan to go. No way. Was this a good swansong for him in that promotion, if this was his last match, which I'm also not super convinced it is, but we'll see because I feel like every time after a wrestle kingdom. They're always like can use leaving soon. Kenny's leaving soon. Guineas leaving soon if this was. His last match. I think it was. I think it was a great match. I think it was a perfectly good way for him to leave. But I mean at any point until he decides to stop wrestling when Kenny leaves anywhere, you're always going to feel like he had more to give Kenny our expectations for him are very very high. Yeah. Because he is so amazing. I guess is what I'm saying. Yeah. It was hard for me to enjoy it as much as last is not because it wasn't a good match and not because ton Ashi is an incredible because it was amazing to see him. And again, I come and tasted such a good job of of putting this much together and selling it to the story of it. But because I was so invested in the Kenya. Who caught a storyline for like a year for more than a year that had they gave you so much more. Because this is what I Japan does better than anyone else. They tell these long long long term stories, and I invested in that so long whereas I've been invested in this for such a short time in compa-. Harrison. I mean compared to WWE storyline. It was like, you know, fucking were pace. But I just didn't feel as involved, and I was so surprised to see Kenny lose his belt so quickly. But yeah, that's still so many stories to tell I I am. It's a first time in a very long time. Like was he go to go? Just tell me. 'cause he still has story here. He could have Sirri it a W could have sorry in w e by all accounts, they've made him very generous offer. We'll see the only problem go into all elite fit him for me is like what's he gonna do? The is what he's gonna do. WWE's already rustled everybody feels like AWS. Yeah. I mean, they're gonna have to pull someone new out of the hat. Right. Like, I feel like that's what they would have to do. But I mean, this is an exciting time to be wrestling to not only not know what's happening in WWE to not know what's happening across multiple promotions. Exciting is that how great is that fraud right now feels like the nineties when like you didn't know what's going to happen? You know, people are jumping ship and do different things. Like, I don't know. I just I kind of like uncertainty in my wrestling. Sometimes the. Anymore? Right. Yeah. It's great. It's going to be so weird. When Cody introduces lex Luger. Thoughts on the things we've talked about so far Facebook dot com slash group slash tights fights at fights on Twitter and Instagram. And when we come back, we'll take a look at the reason that the elite are leaving new Japan. You're listening to tights and fights. Friendly fire is a war movie podcast. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to it. Boy, I'll say, you know, a lot of people Ben Adam might not initially watch a war movie podcast. What's in it? For me. They say, yeah, I'll tell you. What's in it for you for you is biting socio, political commentary, scattered dick and fart jokes. A lotta history. Like, there's the depicted wars. But also the history of the time period that these films were made and released their very telling download friendly fire every Friday from your favorite pod catcher or maximum fund dot org. Dies. Welcome back to tighten fights. I'm how Lebanon I'm today by Danielle advert and Lindsey Cal, and Sean Merrick last week was the confirmation that all elite wrestling was real and would be launching sometime this year and after the rally from the new company this week. We know a lot more about it. Cody Rhodes has announced equal pay for men and women a new show coming up in may and the involvement of stars like pock hangman page writ Baker and this man. I'm Chris Jericho. I am. If all or. Fine. I'll fuck and watch your show. Jesus. I get it. I get it. You're courting of me has worked. I will go watch Chris Jericho wrestle in your promotion for goodness sakes. That's right. Fresh off of losing the intercontinental title to sue you Naito. Chris Jericho was officially signed with an American company. That's not WWE the one thing he told us. He would never do. I can't believe a wrestler said they wouldn't do something. And then they didn't. I mean crazy crazy to here. Look this guy. This motherfucker is forty eight years old still turn out all time matches chew story keeps changing his character. And getting so weird. It's great. I I would argue that he is making a case and building a career that when you look back on it, even if he doesn't have sixteen world titles, or whatever that I personally believe will be the maybe the greatest wrestling career all time. Maybe maybe we don't know. He's not done yet. That's what's crazy. Forty eight years old still doing great work and changing his character. Chase those diverse. Yeah. Look I love RIC flair. But the Rick flair from nine hundred seventy seven was the Rick flair from two thousand seven will be the RIC flair in twenty thirty seven just a great. That's a great all-time character. Yeah. Jericho's the Madonna where he's like when it's time for me to switch it maybe a new. He's happy. Well, I mean, I could do without the hat. If I was being don't want the hat, right? He's kind of going through this. You know, dad figure it out his sons Goth phase trying to. I can wear paint too. Okay. Let's see, you know, raised in black or something. Let's go check it out. But. Raise the black Jesus. I got to be a little bit of a Downer here. I just had this feelings like, oh, Jerry was gonna show up. Everybody's thinking. It's a big surprise that he signed with the company, you know, that is a of e and that it's all Volve with everything he's been doing with as in the in the past year with new Japan, and Cody and all those guys. So it doesn't really shock me that this is happening. I hate feely skeptical about a promotion like this. I really wanna I I to be so excited for it. But then it just party. Also feels like we're thinking about, you know, impact again, and you know, they're panda energy phase. And you know, and then try to do Monday nights. And do we feel that pro wrestling is enough in design Geist today that this is going to be that Awa w is going to be as big as successful as we hope it's going to be the I I think it will. We don't really know what to expect yet. They haven't told us what? Effect. Right. So we know getting a couple of shows. But they haven't said we're going to be a weekly TV show. We're going to be two hours long. We're gonna do this. We can do that. So I think that's why I'm withholding expectations. And why I'm so excited about it? Because I don't really know what they are yet. And I just think everyone involved is too good at what they do to fuck up that by doing it, the right way, you know, they started I feel like laying the groundwork to let people know that they know how to tell stories with being the elite and then starting with that. I I don't see this being one of those things where they come in hit everything hard trying to like be WWE day one, and then flame out or lose money, or whatever I feel like they're going to do this the right way where they slowly build, you know, they haven't announced exactly what it's going to be yet. But even if it's just like one show a month that travels, I think that it can work. I do not feel like Cody is going to rush to try to do a weekly show beyond TV. Or any of those things and till the groundwork has been laid here's here's the issue. I have but the issue I see when you do show like all in or double or nothing, which is the next one. You have years worth of storylines in dream matches. You can put out there, and people will automatically fill in everything that happened between the last time they saw this performer, which probably pretty recently and seeing them at this show, if you're doing a monthly show, I think from a storytelling perspective, you're going to run out of dream matches pretty quick how many I don't wanna watch one night only the elite happens every week. So if you're looking to get hot up on eight off they have something that people are already watching that will get you caught up on these storylines with for. Yeah. I don't think it's that lives in dies Andre much as I think it lives in dies on storytelling. An I know they can do that. I'm not worried I'm excited. I'm really excited. And I mean, they've got the Neville. They have puck that's going to be interesting. I'm curious to see who else shows who else they ended up doing deals with Georgia de LA is there too. Yeah. Yeah. So I feel I feel really good about it. I may or may not have already booked a hotel room, and they that is the week of birthday. And I am I already told my wife says I think I need to do this. I just I want to I want to go. There's maybe star cast event, I'm fairly setting. They'll be a fuzzy show. So. I'm not saying we should go to it. I'm just saying there's going to be one I booked hotel room my brother's coming over Danielle he would very much like to attend. But yeah, we're like the kids are all in on this like to quote a popey previous show. I'm really excited the Kelt crew for the great. I certainly wish him all the luck. I'm more than willing to watch it this just more concerned than anything, but it has been addressed. So we shall see. What happens there, we do have a few things for WWE? We're gonna get into first of all let's go to smackdown. We're not gonna talk about Rodney Moore. We did we did that enough. We gave them enough airtime. Daniel Bryan opened up smackdown cutting this from oh, this what you people call a concession stand. But the only sessions. To your health. Look at the people next are you amick Mike away from that crowd? You eat this to the why because Phillies because it's delicious, Chris you're live are so empty and back. He was that you just shove chandy popcorn down your throat. And that is why you cheer a chain. Yeah. That's true. But also, it's my birthday. Can I have popcorn and candy? And don't put a hot dog that hot dog is check off gun. Don't put that hot. Dug out. The first thing somebody eating it in the third act. Can you have somebody back there just chewing on it chew on that witness? Hey that guy sold that hot dog. So well, although, although I'm surprised you just eating a plane ass dog a maniac. On it. There was must've got mustard on. That's right. He gotta muster later. Yeah. He was very upset about the mustard on his shirt. But yeah. Oh, man. That was good stuff. I love that promo. And I'm not gonna lie hearing them yell divall just made me think of the good place and anything that makes me think of the good. Yeah. I know we all agreed that next time we're show with Daniel Bryan will throwing chicken tenders to like I just wanna get that agreed now because I'm also feel like I've just going to walk around the streets of New York late today screaming fickle in people's face. Because that might be my favorite of his new. That's a that's a good one. Oh, he's so good. He's such an angry vegan. Yeah. He's he's doing prima work. I love this version of his character. I also love the attack by our truth because it it shows a linear memory of things that happened the week before unlike the another good place reference, Jeremy Barron me time line of raw where things sort of dash in and out of our memory. I smack downs. Be doing a very good job part of the reason I certainly in ring product spectacular. But there are good matches on Roswell. I think what smackdown nails is is having a long memory where things connect you can logically. See why matches are happening up and down the card. Can we say this? If WWE really really pisses us up enough, can we devote their segment of time to the good place on podcasts. Yes. Yes. I think role can be the dot above the I. Only talking about Jeremy Barbie. It's not done. I I think that's entirely. Hundred percent also on the show on dry almost and Samoa. Joe finally got a win over Mustafa. Ali and Ramos Ramos didn't talk about Ray mysterious tights. Yes. He's wearing a bleach Baywatch Mallya. I think of that over pants. It was it's the least favorite thing I've ever seen him where I assumed it was a bet. I love it. I it was so stupid. Did. He know did he check Amirah was he very drunk draft. Was it just like fuck it? This is what I've got. Let's do Kabuga. I think it's those context. We about the Canadian destroyer though. But by all means, I mean, I Lord sad. Matt, oh, just hook it up to my veins. Becky Lynch, first of all, I think the the sort of the secret MVP of that of that three way match was Carmella. I thought she was fantastic. Oh, man. Great people sleep on her. They do I think it's one of those things where it's like when you see someone, and you watch a lot of their progress because she started really pop it in annexed t- during a period would everyone was agreeing that an he was like the best show, whereas like, you know, with Sasha and with Becky really like Sasha and Bailey and those ladies when they started it was really during a period where like people were watching annex t but not as many as we're watching it by the time Carmella did. And so, you know, what's that thing of when you watch someone kind of go through it improve. You know, if you're like, I'm a stand up comic. I do all the things I do out here. I do the good shows. I do the, blah, blah, because I've been doing this for eighty million years, I go back home, and I still have to like ask for stuff. Because they don't take me seriously back home because I started there. And I think that's what we did Carmelo. I think like it feels like we watched her do all the open mics, and we watched all the flubs and all the mess ups, and it can be hard sometimes to really take in like. Wow. Look at the improvement. Look at how good the work is it feels like WW doesn't want us to take take seriously. Most of the time, you know, it was like she was champion. And then ten seconds later. She's doing seven second down Sprague. They want you to forget that she's capable. She can't help. But to not get better because she works with people like Charlotte. She works with people like Becky Oscar, and she's just you know, in there with superior talent. And she I mean, she's let's be fair because there are people who've been working for WWE for like years when worked with a lot of top talents who you're right. What you put it very busy know pretty high level position. You know? I think she's shown that she can handle being in a top osition. And what was the that roll up to Carmel doing the code of silence? I was like, man. She's just slick she's getting slick, and I like, yeah. I was beautiful. She's been doing that for for. I think almost a year there. There've been a couple times where you're like. Oh, wow. That was a really great transition into her finish. She gets. She has sort of a natural flow to to to house. She works, and I would say, yeah. That she you when you put her in a big match, she rises to the occasion sheet Nobel tarring her. Nope. She's she's getting in there and doing the work, and there are people who who wrestle top matches who we all like a lot. I don't think are at that level of work, and you sort of go. All right. They've hit there. They seem to have hit their ceiling in terms of what they are able to do in the ring. And that is totally fine. And totally good. She. It feels like someone who could keep going in in more and more directions. Like, she has that that Afghan to continue to evolve her in ring ability. And that's that I think is rare that is a rare. And I mean, I think that it also helps that she just has wrestling to focus on she's not like doing total divas. She's not doing any of that other stuff. So in her time off she can really be training and getting the work done. Yeah. If you have any thoughts on what we've discussed here. Let us know about it at Facebook dot com slash group slash tights fights at tights fights on Twitter and Instagram when we come back, we've got four things from Wesleyan that we wanna share with you that's up next on tights and fights.

And how Lublin I'm joined today by Radford. And and Sean Merrick this week we are ending the show by sharing of the joy of pro wrestling with you, this is the three slash four count. Sean around here, the guests go first, what would you like to put over hot damn? So I want to put over the major wrestling figure podcast is hosted by Matt Cardona and Brian Myers, aka Zack Ryder and curt Hawkins, they talk. Specifically about wrestling action figures collecting wrestling action figures, so my aesthetic in general is just a box of loose action figures at a convention. That's just my static in general. And they kinda do that sort of thing. It's like it's like if you ever seen deadspin to have less. Remember, some guys that's pretty much like this podcast of them being like, well, I remember this Eljay figure. Oh, what about this has row wrestling figure, but it's awesome. Because it's just that sort of Manusha that they sorta they get into it. I don't think a lot of people know about this podcast. So you need to check it out and scratch that figure it and get into it. It's it's a lot of fun. All right Lindsey. I have. Very respectful unserious video to ova everyone to enjoy to something that was sent to me by friend. At its Japanese game show.

But ultimately coach Bucci appearing on Japanese game show, which I'm sure we all know that they're all bonkers. Right.

Fix It 101: Working On Your Home (From Home)

"This is an MP think radio podcast from MPV think radio. This is fix. It went to one home improvement. Show to help you do it yourself. I'm Jason Klein here with Pam Inspector at inspect it like a girl and licensed contractor. Jeff Simmons from house works the Corona virus continues to impact our daily lives and man. Has It changed things? It's just unbelievable. I never thought I'd see these things you know. You can join the conversation with this morning by calling eight seven seven in pb ring. That's eight seven seven six seven two seven four six four or send an email to fix it one oh one. Mp BE ONLINE DOT ORG. How are you guys doing this morning? Pretty good there. We go Pam Jeff. I'll I'm doing great the And we're building right now all right well just so that you know. We're all doing our social distancing. I'm going to tell you. One of our experts today is in an F. One fifty and one is in a rocking chair home. I'm going to let you decide which one it is as we go further into today. I can't even pull myself into a one fifty so we know that's okay okay. I also learned that Jeff had to find the nearest nine year old to figure out hook him up online today and get them hooked up. But he's he's with us. You're good Jeff Man. I love this. This is this is not a bad way to do. A radio. Show is not It's not so. With all the weirdness of Cova nineteen out there. How are you guys doing business? Well it's a little different and what we're doing on a on on as far as mockup in a We have one trade at a time in our new construction and ending. You know if the trim carpenters are in there. We don't let anyone else come in other than those two trim carpenters. And they and they do their six foot distancing on their own a little easier to control and then as far as our remodels. We are only doing Houses that are vacant. Wait outside go good okay. So outside stuff like a siding roofing you know anything we can do out pride and and we there was a house caught on fire a couple of weeks ago. So we're that obviously it's Bacon House right. That's that's our that's our baseline. How about you PAM How are you handling this well? We decided as a company That we would only inspect Empty Properties or commercial properties. Right now now when you say empty does that mean no one lives there or no one is currently there well. We decided that it would be best if no one was living there Just because of all the unknowns around how this thing is spread and also we don't know where the people who are in the house have been right right and then we're had. I been driveway for me. I may need them right. Jeff is out there. Arkin his point in doing traffic while he's while he's on the show live. This is how it works folks. So what are Pam? Are you trying to work on anything at home? You've been closed up for a while now. Are you doing anything in particular? Yeah and this is something that our listeners can do as well if if you moved into property and had a home inspection done I would encourage you to pull that report out and just tackle the items that may not have gotten repaired. We do. We give a pretty extensive general maintenance because what we WANNA do is help. The consumer no had a live in their home to do to keep it up so I pulled. The report had Haley. One of mine inspectors inspect my house last year. I try to do that every couple of years from my property. So I've called that report and I've started tackling Things that were on that report things like putting Electric junction boxes or junctions. That because Paul Paul built my shop right so I'm going in and putting junction boxes around those that wiring. Just because it's a safety issue and then I've I've been doing a lot. I can tell you know what someone is. GonNa Call Me Popol. One day they're gonNA see like my work at workshop or something APP Pablo wired. This one does a lie your busy. I can't wait to be well okay. I've got a couple of things I want to run over this week. I I've been able to to to work on a couple of things that crack in a wall that you know better no better time than now to work on that. So I was able to Outputs joint compound on and paint over it and everything else. That looks like it was never there now. So that was that was interesting another one that I took some reclaimed wood. I was I had torn down a thing in the backyard and I use that reclaimed wood to make a new fence for my garden because we have dogs in their favorite thing to do is to pull up. Whatever we planet so put an fence out there and it's a good way to use your time. Now want to talk about this using your time thing folks a Toll Java this morning when I came in that we've we've got to have a serious talk with our listeners this morning and that serious talk is I went by a home store a been by there. I think twice since this whole big thing started and it is if it's unbelievable folks every body is there everybody. They are slam packed all day. Long as long as they're open and people were parked up all the way into the back of the part like parking. Lots like it's the day after day before Thanksgiving or something like that is unbelievable and then you go inside. I did go inside and it was interesting. There were so many people there now. People were excuse me trying to social distance and so that would be one person at the register their would-be another person. Six feet back. It'd be another person's six foot back from that but then there are twenty customers behind them. That had no marker standing right next to each other and a bunch trying to get to the register so so this is what I gotta say. I know that you're home. You're bored. There's not much else to do but work on the house and it's kind of funny if you look around your neighborhoods might noticed. Nobody's yard needs to be mowed. Everybody's yours perfect. You know I mean everybody. Everybody's yard is. It's amazing. I drive down neighborhood. And there's gorgeous flowers everywhere and yards or mode there's people out with blowers everywhere at all times of the day on a Wednesday so people are outside. Yes ma'am can. I mentioned something you know. You talk about all the ARD spin mode what what folks could do in their neighborhoods is noticed what yours are not mode because it's probably a senior or someone who is could be affected by the US and cut their yard forum. That's a very good point. That's a very good point. Thank you so much pam. That's fantastic. I did want to say the reason why I mentioned all that. Is it folks? I know your board. I know you need things to do. But jamming twenty people on top of each other and throwing a thousand people at a single homebuilding store is not working for the whole social distancing thing if you drive up and there's thirty thousand people in the parking lot think about maybe another time you can come back or can you order it or can you. There's a lot of different things but once you're there remembered trying to keep your social distance it really is important all right it is and I tell you something they can do to maybe find a project at home. That doesn't require going to the store. That's interesting you know. I was thinking about that this morning. Pam Trying to figure out what is it that we can do in our homes that does not require us to go buy anything and I thought well. A lot of folks have like a little tool kit in their home Some folks do not have a tool kit and I thought well what does everybody have and I thought well spent my life watching. My Mom. Put things together with a butter knife. Everybody's got one of those another thing too that that unless you did it last weekend Ed needs to be done The storage room and the garage clean out. What other time. You're going to get better than this. It's so funny my wife and I were sitting there laughing at each other for procrastinating. We're like what for why. Why are we going to do this? Let's do it so I mean you really think about so anyway. I hope things are going well for you guys. And if you're out there working on your home and you really want some advice or if you've got a problem with something that's happened during this time. Please give us a call. Eight seven seven empty ring. That's eight seven seven six seven two seven four six four you can also send an email to fix it one time for us to take our first break for the hour and today we're taking a look at inside your home with many people staying in your home. This is the perfect opportunity to fix that wobbly toilet finals studs to hang a shelf for. Organiz your toolbox where we return. We'll talk about the difference between cleaning disinfecting and sanitizing. No really. They're different. If you have a question for our guest or any other home improvement questions join the conversation and give us a call. Eight seven seven in. Pb Ring Eight seven seven six seven two seven four six four or send an email to fix it one. Oh one at N. P. B. Online dot. We'll be right back. I'm Alison Walker. The lady auto mechanic host of autocorrect. If you're enjoying this podcast. Try My podcast. Autocorrect we help. Steer you in the right direction with your car problems family any podcast platform or at autocorrect dot. Mpv ONLINE DOT ORG COM. You're listening to fix it one to one on. M. P. B. Think radio. I'm Jason. Climb here Pam Piedras us as she certified inspector inspector like a girl and licensed contractor. Jeff Salmon's from housework. She can join the conversation this morning by calling eight seven seven M pb ring. That's eight seven seven six seven two seven four six four or send an email to fix it one. Oh one at M. P. B. Online dot. Org Okay so we mentioned before we got into the break that I was GonNa tell you the difference between cleaning sanitizing and disinfecting. We're hearing all terms all over everywhere and now this is not a medical show. But there's so many things around you and as I said if everybody's going out and getting stuff to work on in the home you're still going to get stuff. So here we go the term cleaning you ready for this removes germs dirt and impurities from surfaces or objects that just the standard term of cleaning. Then we moved sanitizing now that lowers the number of germs on the surface itself to a safe level. That's what sanitizing does as judged by public health standards and requirements. This process worked by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection. Okay now that that is sanitizing. Now there's a whole different level disinfecting. Now this worked by using chemicals to kill the germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean the dirty surfaces or remove any germs just zaps the just APPs the germs that kills them. So they can't they can't go and so basically cleaning removes. Germs sanitizing lowers the number of germs and disinfecting kills the germs. So you've got three different kind of categories of which are doing there all right so we're going to go to the phone lines. Now it's open and Lorne on the line and notches what's GonNa learnt. Good Morning Good Morning. I'd like to tell you the downside to all this wonderful cleaning and all that I decided I needed to get my house in order to contact. Got It and died. Didn't people think I live the way my house look like the dirty underwear thing. Yeah so I've got to clean and including some big stuff stuff. That's going thrift store. And all that Kinda stuff. I landed up in the hall. Guess what Rish is closed because of the of the store is closed. Now my house is. I got a little pathway that I can walk to look. I'm not I'm not. I'm not laughing at her. I can just imagine there's A. I'm trying to clear out my house now. I've got everything cleaned out. Thrift stores not open. What do I do with all this stuff now? Wow that's a really good point. You know what you're going to have to find a storage place until somebody opens back up. I would think dump it all our you know no good enough. I don't need it anymore. Whatever right you know what you can do. Let me let me say this. You know what you can do. There are still people in the world who would love to have it. And I've done this at my house. You can put her own. Let go or craigslist or facebook marketplace or something like just take a picture and it says free curbside alert. Come get it and you'll you'll find that people will know a true story. We were doing the same thing we're cleaning virgin and cutting grass and all that stuff so we put some stuff out on the curb Day before yesterday I think and He was going in about thirty minutes right. So that may be an option. Lauren but until then find a nice corner and room. You don't use all that stuff up all right. Let's keep moving. Go Onto Robert in Memphis going on Robert. Hey what can I do for you okay? My wife recently purchased And I notice in the master shower. There is no exhaust fan cooled exhaust fan in the in the shout. Okay Jeff Pam Pam. Let you go first. I've got an opinion Well how old is the House about twenty years old okay? Well you know what the what that Tan is for is to remove the moisture that is Generated by using water in the house. And so the fan would pull that out. If you can't get that install but we've recommended is coming in with a ceiling fan or something because if you don't dry that air moisture on the interior of your home can lead to other problems I we see an older houses where they may not be there and so we try to give folks you know options about what you can do. It's not too terribly difficult to put one in. But it's going to ask you if you can retrofit something you can. I mean it just depends on you know. Sometimes I had a house one time where there was a second floor and right above where that bathroom was so the only option would have been to prevent fan in the wall. That would have taken the air outside and I just told the client. I said what you're trying to do is dry the air after you used that shower that whirlpool or that tub and so a ceiling fan would accomplish that. It's not the best solution but sometimes you just have to do a around in these older houses. Jeff what what what you got. Yeah no the Sudafed is a great idea. It's a great alternative There is a company that manufacturers a retro fit. It's called whisper quiet it's made by Panasonic yeah it's a it's a great alternative If you like. If it's a single story you can get in the attic and things of that nature and relatively easy to install So let me ask you. Jeff Robert. Did you hear about that one? The the the Panasonic whisper flow quite required. And now Jeff just top of your head you know about what one of those units runs. Yeah it's They are not cheap. You're going to. You're going to spend two fifty three hundred bucks on that fade and and let me say. Robert as you do that When you go into the store and start looking at the at the bathroom Fangio GonNa find that they make some really cheap models It's because those are really cheap models you don't necessarily want So so make sure and take care of all right Robert. We appreciate it. I've got one more question. Go for it. What can you tell me about what it would cost to have? Someone installed that for me. Yeah probably another three hundred dollars a year five to six. You're five to six hundred with the fan installed. Okay thanks you WANNA make sure to Robert. Be Sure that we've seen this coming in behind install. Make sure that they're following the manufacturer's specifications on putting that in because if you put the fan and don't have an extension in the attic. You're not doing anything you're just turning on a motor and you're not pulling anything out because it's covered with insulation in the attic. It's good point so normally a what those fans have is some type of them that's attached to it And just make sure whatever that manufacturers suggest that that's being followed on the end stall event would have gone through the roof. It would depend Europe in Memphis so Hit might need to go Out The roofs. The reason you know here in our Area I. I don't really recommend that they go out the roof because our do point is so high on our attic. Anyway but in Memphis you. Temperatures are so much cooler. And if you run that vent in your attic in the wintertime you're going to have a lot of condensation on the decking in your attic. So I don't know Jeff you do some stuff. It's A. It's a great point and I'll put it perspective Madison County. We convince them in the attic. Madison the city. We have to venom outside sales. Yeah Bob personal belief do never vent those events outside. Vit- those in your attic Pity visiting them outside simply creates A moisture problem that have just described. Plus you have a penetration in your roof which is another potential all right. Thank you Robert. I hope that helps out So you're looking at around six. You know six to seven getting four. Yeah Okay thanks a lot Robert. We appreciate it. Let's go to Raymond and Lewisville. And Ramon what's going on? Good morning how are you good? Or y'all sheltering in place all right so what's going on. Does the newspaper. I you know you see advertising on TV where you can spray the roof to preserve it for a while. Does that work Pam and Jeff. You know the stuff that I'm assuming you're talking about to get that stuff off the roof from you know I think it's called roof refurbish It's been advertised on TV. It would you know it's going to happen for new shingles on you can spray this on or how. Denver spray it on in order to preserve the roof. Ceo had to buy shingles right now I have no. I have not heard of this product at all. No I've never I've been in this business. Twenty two plus years At going to numerous trade shows and deal with with roofing and roofing products for the last twenty some odd years When you heard the phrase it sounds too good to be true of eastbound sue good to be true and I don't want to be Debbie Downer but There there there would not be manufacturer manufacturing shingles if the product truly was worth anything. Good way thinking that all right well and you know part of the show here Ramon is is making sure that people here all the truths that need to be heard so all right. Thanks a lot and good luck in make sure do the right thing on your roof fits the one thing that you do on your home. That could ruin the rest of the home all right. Let's go to bill and Greenwood. What's going on bill. Yeah see these manufactured homes Like right out of Maybe Cedar Wood or something. It kinda pretty. Don't really have any pain on them but I was wondering Expensive KINDA A MR regular carpenter Pity build me a home like that and save a little bit of money on a regular well before any the the pros answers. I can tell you that someone was always willing to work with you to build a home promise. Here's somebody wants to help you. You guys want to handle this. I'm not sure I understand the question. Well he saw he saw a newer modular mobile home. That look real nice because they use cedar siding on it right. Yeah Oh a storage shed. Yeah and he was wondering at this can be done. You know retro to to a home and and I would think the answer is yes jeff. Yeah you know if the House has siding on it now sure we could. We could put. We could put you know other siding on it and my recommendation If you have masonite or cedar or something along those lines and wanted to switch it out I would use a hardie. Board like product meaning a concrete impregnated product. If I was going to Redo the siding on my house is there one? That does look like would look. Yeah yeah they they they make one that is similar as wood grain on it and and what I like about the concrete product is it's virtually maintenance free you do at one time. He carries a fifty year. Warranty You do at one time in you. You painted every ten to twelve years using a good quality pay or stain or well. Yeah your concrete product. You're not going to really stay out of fatal product of you know. Think about think about what what we're doing. Let's let's start with the roof. Your your roof can get a hundred plus degrees easy in the summertime. Then the sun shining on that citing. We've got you know ninety five degree plus on our citing and it's every single day it lives outside. It's in the element we when we're building houses or remodeling houses. We've got to take a long-term what is the best product? I can put out here. This go to last the longest amount of time and in my opinion that's going to be a concrete product. Well And I will say and bill. I've seen these homes that you're talking about and and I believe honestly that you can do it. You know the the way if you honestly wanted to do this my opinion would be go to a lumber mill and deal with it that way. I'm not sure you WANNA get that much lumber from your local home store but if you WanNa do that you can but I kind of tend to go with Jeff Pam. Do you have a thought on this? Well I think jeff is right and something that people don't think about houses and the products that we use specifically those on the outside they expand and contract expand and contract and so the the wood will do that. And if you've used fasteners then right around where those fasteners are. The Wood is expanding and contracting and expanding contracting and after a while it will It will create like a a whole or way for the water to get in and the biggest enemy of a house is water so these concrete products are so good. Because if they're installed correctly and I will say yet again manufacturer specifications because if they're not flashed right and installed right and can use the correct The connectors correctly. Then you've just created a huge problem down the road and what it looks like the day it was installed may not look that way in five years. If you didn't follow the instructions so finding someone who is I think Jeff could correct me on this on some of these sidings their certifications for putting those up and then you're just roll here installed correctly pam is crazy see. I'm telling you this guy to go to the lumber mill and start hammer N- and you're like no hire somebody. Well well okay. Let's look here's a couple things You can go on and hardy board's website they will walk you step by step exactly how to install hardie board. It's very simple but there are a couple of of Oh Man. I wish I would've done that. Then if you don't do it that way. You may be jeopardy avoiding your warranty so good. I go on the website. Do that so as far as going straight to the lumber yard and getting your product. They're probably not going to sell it to you. Because they've got an agreement with their contractors and distributors. I mean you you could go to your bona fide. And I'M NOT GONNA say big box stores lumber dealer and get your options on citing. Okay all right thank you very much. I appreciate it let's Let's take another time for a break. We're still putting the focus in these home projects. That should have been done awhile ago but you know you got all the time in the world. Now there's no time to keep putting them off here to help also when we return we'll let you know how to make any space a Home Office so stay. I'm Alison Walker.

You can always listen backed by podcast using any PODCAST APP or or public media so we were talking before the break about. You know. There's no way around this corona virus thing the way the way that has shut down America and more you know the world. Actually many people are working from home but not everyone has a Home Office however You can set up a Home Office. I was talking to someone this morning. Who said I said so? How's Your Home Office? And she said well I have a chair and I thought okay well. That's the dining room table thing so instead set up a Home Office. And here's some neat ideas that that that we've pulled. You can set up an office. If you've got a stair landing that was a really good idea if you've got a stair landing but you can put an awkward landing space to use at the turn of a stairwell or top of staircase to work by situating a desk there just select a slim setup so that the office is narrow enough has not in the way for anybody trying to pass by but there is a place in in home that's not typically used. It might be used for an office a kitchen command center. This is what I typically see happening. A lot of our home's kitchen office utilizes uh dead. Space across the fridge provides plenty of room to spread out. You know. I've seen these in my own house. If I if I go home and look at the dining room table you can tell excuse me.

It was hard but the we'll do a whole show on that one day but funny story When you do a reality. Tv Show On these remodel things. There's so many things that I would do differently. And one of them was that they sent a crew of people to pack up my kitchen and I mean there must have been ten people just grabbing things out of the pantry out of the refrigerator dumping everything in a box and I put it in my shop. Well it was August. It was around. Hoti wise Michael and also when you do reality TV show in the south. They don't let you turn on the air condition so yeah and so Hit got to be September and I thought you know things are filmed in Canada Yeah exactly exactly so I think that crew from La learned a lot about our heat but y started unpacking those boxes.

I'm Jason Klein here with Pam Pipes as she certified inspector inspect it like a girl and licensed contract. Jeff Simmons from housework so I wanted to make sure to mention before we got off the radio again today that we mentioned the first of the our folks we know your board and we know you need stuff to do and a lot of. You're doing it outside and in your homes and working around and we encourage that that that is a fantastic way to spend this time while we've got nothing to do however when you're going to the the the home stores your local hardware store everything else. Remember everybody in there trying not to get sick and keep your social distance and if it looks like there's forty thousand people at the store you're going into maybe that's not the time to walk in so anyway. I just wanted to bring that up all right. We've got somebody on the line real quick. Gloria is on the line and BA luxy. What's going on Gloria? I have a question I have a stucco outside on the house and it needs to be pressure washed. My husband thinks if I press your wash stucco it's GonNa fall off kind of don't think so but anyway put that at rush for me and like any risk of damaging or looseness Deco. Good pressure wash on it. Well it depends. If it's real stucco you shouldn't have a problem. But if it's exterior insulated finishing system if it's a synthetic stuff you're gonNA rip Taus concrete house and the STUCCO was here right to the concrete. It's nothing between it. And the concrete is there bric brick by brick home right now no concrete. Okay Okay Okay. Co Concrete Walls. Ed Ed and they did the real stucco not the synthetic correct. This is much pressure Washer. If I'm going to use a pressure Washer I am going to use a wide spray I am. He's very gentle pressure and I'm going to use a bucket and a brush. I'm GONNA bucket a brush it before. I'm going to pressure wash it if I end up having if I end up and there's no other way to clean it other than a little bit of pressure. I'm going to use a little bit of pressure but I'm GONNA use a wide spray. You know in another thing jeff to think about if that top code has a lot of cracks in it you can remember concrete's porous so I'm driving water into that into that product I'm not a believer in pressure. Washing there are applications for a pressure. Washer I e sidewalks driveways patios exterior of home. Be Very very careful. Use more brush elbow grease less pressure Washer. Sounds like Nice? Thank you Gloria. We appreciate it. I've got an email here. That did want to get to that pertain to this show so can send an email from south haven. He said he was talking about these bathroom. Fans he said. In general bathroom fans are installed by builders and bathrooms without a window. The ideas that the window serves the purpose without the need for a fan and short. If you have a window install a fan only if you really want one thought that was interesting when you guys think of that well. It's Kinda hot outside. I don't really WANNA raise another north. I disagree with that because most permeated areas. We require ventilation fan really. Okay stay all but most all of them that we work in require ventilation fan really. Okay yeah new. Construction is going to end Jason. LemMe mentioned something. Because I've been thinking about this since you talked about it in the beginning. Go for it if you're an ACA. Jeff if you ever seen an outlet on a stair landing held little mystere lead so if I'M GONNA put my office on a stair landing how am I gonNa Plug my computer research it okay. Think a pretty sure. We've we've we've done that before just for a simple fact. You could have a little little bitty quarter table there or something. But but I think she's picking on you. Jason certain toward children running down the stairs. Listen Jason didn't say it was ideal. He said it was an alternative. Yes absolutely get about falling down the stairs. That's true now. Another option set up under the stairs. Unless you have some sort of fear of that somehow actually. That's a great idea kinds it. I'll tell you where I'll tell you where not to have one where do not do not think you're going in your bedroom. You'RE GONNA watch a little bit of Dave. Am to do. You're not going to do that on the bed. And that's how answering one is a production of Mississippi public broadcasting. Think Radio and it's funded by the generous contributions from our listeners.

Mr. Vince a working to get it looks like you left your manscaping tool out here in the living room, dude, awkward. Yeah, yeah. When I when I man scape, I have really fine sort of grayish Brown pews. Yeah, that come out and a mustache didn't know. Yeah, people don't know what you're talking about. So it's just perma. Nater is out here and there was a previous the firm Nater the foam Nate's. Did you ever hear forget who he was playing with jello Biafra, like updated updated version of California paralysis and it's all about sports Negga. Oh, really? Funny. Name bucking a bro. The shoe. Going. Sip sip is so anxious for it to be autumn. You know, I thought he was going to chastise the remember around this time. Last year I showed up in shorts and a t-shirt, and he's like holding on to summer. He's like ready to snuggle up beside the fire. I'm only wearing jeans because all my shorts were dirty with cinnamon, stick in his mouth and fuck in get on with it. Was that. Man just gotta get. Maybe maybe when you're maybe get up at five, twenty five, ten jumping jacks. Cardio, no car. I don't wanna lose mass. Can't lose any mass. God, I lost ten pounds the go-to mass, your resting heart rates. Big week in wrestling. I hear re Bella almost killed a guy. Yeah, that's exactly what happened because I didn't see. I didn't watch any raw yet. Well, what happens? She almost kills you. Yes, kicking her and then just fucking dropped. One hundred face. Okay, I've watched it a bunch of times at this poll. Really. I think she kicked her once in the head that made hurt because the way things are in the head. I dunno one time two times three times enough time enough time. Dress up out. One of the kids got her in the head and kind of made her woozy. And so she was leaning a bit too far into the kicks, and then she just completely outed you know, not. Apron and then she disappeared. And Michael was like, lives been taken to the back. I just wanted to be known that I am so much suffers at like those the the news just broke. I could do ninety minutes of Bill Cosby doing prison talk. Well, that's what they've come to expect. Thia me down in. Let me know what's going on in the fifty four forty six was my number. I watch raw on you. Cosby. Does talk about bowel Cosma head. I watch Monday night raw. He never wrestlemainia. Oh God, three plus hours of my head ought, but I was doing such a watch destruction album. Did you says okay? No. Oh man. No, Okada China, hoc- tailored again, man really another classic off. And then what and then what j. fucking white man comes down and fuck and takes advantage of Tanah when he's weak. Snatches that briefcase where was Okada laid out because Hashi at fucking laid them out, then ghetto comes down. Oh, well, hold on. First of all. First of all, after j. white lays out on how she goes to get a cherry pushes. Rocky Romero out of here gets chair Yoshi Hashi, full speed Fook and eat shit like Titus. Self backup, bloodied himself, and then and then Jay white hits the chair. What I already feel bad for Yoshiaki because he's always sort of like an afterthought a little bit. You know, we, we see bloodied himself. You mean he is four. In the fall. He he, he got to cut somewhere. Oh, he literally got he didn't cut himself. He didn't know none of that. I think was intentional. I think he was intending to run down to try to save the day, nevertheless, then ghetto comes out. Okay. And fuck. In gives Okada the fuck in one, two buckle my shoe turns on him. Shut the fuck up. You gotta be fucking shifts, briefcase j, white and says, ton Ashi. You're gonna, fuck it. Fight him for the briefcase. Next you can't just I just hand off the briefly. I mean, I think he was just he was sort of symbolically saying like, oh, because it feels like once you have that briefcase your matches, like title can be for it, not not like the WB. We're occasionally they make it that, but like regular. Yeah, it's a regular stip in the match. I think I like that because I feel like the match with Okada was maybe even four it potentially. But anyway, so now j. white is is going to get a get a shot, but not before this Sunday. That may actually even make more sense. Why? What happened? Sunday? Well, this coming, we're going to see Jay white and ghetto dude versus fuck in Kushida and Tana Ashi we have to be looking for Kushida. 'cause already fragging be the full card is out and I don't care what any neck beard says about it. I'm jammed fucking happy. I'm excited for it. I I, I'm so excited jammed Soren. I'm for. Oh, got fares coming, breathing down your neck. Also. We're not getting a special new Japan. Show these house allots to start sorts sorta. How show. Is it we're going to new Japan, a house show. We're going to. We're going to new Japan on Sunday, Long Beach. Now, I know that I didn't know as a house show. No, that's when people get upset about the cards that they have put on over here. People are like it's just a glorified. How shows not even like a, you know, that's the complaint. And you know what I say that those people who have that complaint then stay in your house. Well, some people have this time because it's about half the last. Hook people because of the car because the car didn't come out to last night. That's right. As Kenny omega gonna be there? Yes, j white. Is he going to be there. Just saying, yes, yeah. All right. We're good. We're good. Oh, it's it's going to be great. Did you got juice versus Cody?

He doesn't even know that difference threat Takahashi on. Takahashi and and not really old guy anyone's sick, and you know, pause because of me, you barking up the wrong. All I want a at this point. I want this show to be so mega mega mega ultra successful just so we started -tracting people who don't like the show and just are just in raged by you. Oh yeah.

We've got Kenny omega and his partner coda Bucci. Taking on. 'cause Okada and his partner told a hero itchy. I really thought you think Jap the tag on top. Maybe the toilet Plugger himself is in the main. We've got juice Robinson versus Cody now. Now I believe that Omegas facing ECI at the next show. Right. Is that maybe 'cause I all these matches. Obviously, you know, there's a reason for the season. It's always yes. The next thing you know who I got no juice for juice. Robinson. We're the he, he's never heals shit. He's never where the fuck where you there. Yeah, but that was he got me all juiced up, not because of him, but because Jay way truth. Oh, fuck you use does nothing for me the fucking wrapped up.

They'll always be able to make sure they're in the same location if you catch my continental Frankie because they are in and Christopher Christopher Daniels of SCU. Right. Taking on chase Owens and the hangman. Oh, great. This whole STI. I don't. I don't know what that's all about that. Doing the fucking Yano.

Well, I imagine it just means at Rockies going to be restaurant doesn't say rocky, but put it assume that's what he's a member of the stable at bar wrestling when when marrow came out to the Republican vice. Aw, I was standing next time I started Dan. There was room in the venue. I hate that I was dancing. I was flailing my arms around Tom. Do you didn't say what I thought you're going to say, what rocky Romero must have walked from the stage to bag and just turned around. He was gone by the time he walked out of out of the ring back. He was almost immediately in front of us really bag. We saw in his street clothes with his hat and his Rowley bag before. The next match was even been worried about his car, quite Frank. He also might needed to get to the airport, man. He might have been headed back to reporting repelling rip bar wrestling show, pay enough to also in from Japan. Well, I mean he lives out in LA. Okay. He lives in the same apartment building Taylor, William. Yeah, yeah, but let's not speculate as to how much people are being paid by arresting because obviously they do have people who've airing go very go. But also friend of the show Mark Zecca made his commentary debut at destruction. He was in the Don calloused chair shot on the English commentary. I had no idea because when I saw him.

He's we're friends with this gentleman. Yeah. And a commentator comedian comes at all podcasts. Does he have his own podcast? I don't know. I don't think so, but I'm not saying he should have won started podcast with Chuck and Trent. I don't know. But what I'm saying right now, Kevin, Kelly. Don callous. Uh-huh. Shutting down. Very early. Normally this later he's eating playing cake doughnuts already. Oh man. I might need more coffee ready. Here's down. Let's go down Saturday night.

And then we'll hit the beach for a little while and be outside of the building about one thirty, but tends to show start five, no. Tours are three thirty. It's always a mess. Kitten in there. A mess getting. We gotta get to that merch line though. Dude, do you remember the last time was at the pyramid you weren't there? He's never been to the pyramid the convention center? No, we're going to the pier what that is the Walter paramedics it's in Long Beach. It's a bigger venue. It's like Modrica seating. It's an arena. Yes. Oh, wow. How our seats good can't be beat where our seats a couple rows into the into the lower debt, sorta like where we've been sitting recently at Irish. Oh, go to favorite seats? Yeah. Just a couple off the floor dead on what's that called it. A hockey game, like the center ice, the dentists seats mezzanine the, oh, sometimes it's. It's like the lows. Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. I was about to say, Latrobe. I remember when I went and saw this is going back nine inch nails at the Boston Garden and other Trent in nineteen ninety three. And he four ninety three God. I feel like we've talked about this was dancing and Marilyn Manson with them. Marilyn Manson was there and the Jim rose circus. Okay. Then you were looking for the lows, but that that my parents kept trying to explain to me, you know how good the seats were your parents were with, you know, me and my brother. Can you imagine mon- God. Grabbed me by my ear that was ninety four because I saw Pearl Jam ninety three in the description, though in trying to tell you they were like all those are considered the best seats like at a hockey and like, you know, it's like what. Were they good seats? There were great seats, but it's just, you know, when people don't listen, they keep trying to explain it. Like my parents or my father tried to explain things like sports terms and I'm just like, I don't. You know, I don't watch snow or how many times you say this word. If I don't know what it is, I know going further. It's like when they try to explain to me like Budweiser commercials like, oh, have you seen this commercial? I'm like, no, I, they're like, oh God. It's on all the time like you have because you watch football. I don't. I don't know what a spots McKenzie. I don't. I've never seen the guy say yes, I am. It's like this. It's like the fucking Russians here. Let me tell you. Do you remember that series of bud commercials. That was the guys catch. He was. He was one of the guys in. I think he was like one of the computer nerds in ocean's eleven. He was in a series of Budweiser commercials where just whatever the situation was, he would just go, yes, I am vaguely, I don't remember that vaguely June. There was one where was like, is the one that they loved was he gets off of an airplane and some, you know, like the limo driver has the sign of like, you know, Mr. Wazzan hausky or whatever it is like your doctor while announcing. He's like, yes, I am. And then he's riding around the limb Onis you know, pressing all the buttons and the windows and the sunroof and the TV and they're like, is this your first time in a limousine? Doctor wasn't now skis and he's like first time in one, this small. Steve wiser. That's what it was is because there was Budweiser's in the limo. So he's like, yes, he's trying to get those buds. Allusive bud, man. It's so hard to get your hands on a bud sip. Did you watch any of raw other than this Pickard round the face? I watched on it. You saw the whole hall three hours now, at any point where you concerned for what that your hero dean Ambrose could be compromised and that Ziglar and McIntyre would get inside of his head and convince him to turn on the shield where they plan mine, here's all show. They were trying to get with them and say, look at doodoo. You don't need these guys. Let me ask you, you know what's going to have everybody stop time. It's going to happen. I was doll's hair. Well, dolph dolph always looks at it. He's got Thailand. It's crazy, you know crazy how good like it enhances his character to the nth. His neck is huge now to like a side. No, I heard and working neck like sometimes he goes Jimmy only works knack next day. Neck. Bear off God. Okay, dean, I love gene. Everyone knows that. Duck neck day when you're scratching your nut prior is facial hair perhaps getting a bit too manicured. Yeah, it is. It is someone tell that maybe come from above like children and he's got a clean up that maybe from Rene. AB I bought you. The raise are happy. Wife had a what's confirming Nader. Using your firm Enator every time he shaves. He like reaches into a garbage bag, takes out an old coke bottle that they don't even make any more breaks it, and then just starts like dry. Same shaving right there. Dude. He's like, I'm shaving, Dave. Did you see how could Brock speared looks? Why don't you? You should clean it up a little bit. Brock can have a manicured beard and it just adds to it where Saudi Arabia gonna happen. All right. Is that does that in the south Rena is that in Wessler the south is Saudi Arabia's western hope we get to play soccer again. Oh, is it like the Aladdin movie. Dean is going to turn on the shield. It was going on, dude, heard some big news, the Princess, a big fan to. I'll take you to mecca and back to do the job dude among brother brother. Awesome. LEGO. We are referring to the Saudi prince who who is in charge of bringing the WWE in tweeting a photo or an Instagram of hulk HOGAN, leading speculation that HOGAN his on camera return in Saudi Arabia, Saudi prince tweeted that didn't you? Oh, I forgot. It was a text anyway. No, I know. I know he's going. I I've heard, but I didn't, but he didn't see what I wrote to use specifically, just let's let's not take all the tech stuff personally, what it is. All right. Dean is going to turn on the shield and everywhere, and then he's going to go over to dolphin and drew, okay. They're gonna put out their hands desire, anything. He's gonna, turn on them double swerve. And then dean is gonna be the fucking lone survivor won't along one hot dog. Vince Roussin zone. Is this going to happen to Saudi Arabia or is it gonna do kinda thing Australia's? Is that match where it's where it's the shield versus are they advertising Saudi Arabia's stuff? No. I mean, so this Australian show is next weekend, and then I imagined coming out of that because the Saudi show is pretty quickly after that they'll have will no, no Australia than the women's pay per view. Then Saudi Arabia, right then. Probably like survivor series immediately after that. Sure. The WWE Saudi Arabia for oil paper when is when we're going to survivor series. Right. We're going to annex t answer by receivers. When is that? That is like the weekend before thanksgiving. I want to say the seventeenth. Sounds right. That's November yet. And then Tom is agreed for the good show to also go to Ron smackdown that week, but we don't have to go Tom's going to go. Are they in town air? That'd be a lot. I know you've said that you wanted to really put your heart into it. You feel like that's what's gonna make the show really take off. That doesn't sound like something I'd say. Wait a seventeen. That's a Saturday. The high is survivor series. Got, I believe. One of those shows we're going to have Casey Corbin with us. I think it's the annex t show. Ooh, he's gonna be in town or games. The war games owns ring and dude, phone's ringing. Did they still have landlines here? Yeah, but I think teens gonna turn on everybody and then just go it alone. He can't join up with fucking dolphin drew. That would be what. These just going to jump from one stable to another. What about bra? Unstable? He's one of the the salty dogs. That's right. What about the beef? The old beef stroganoff. He's just by nece time before he turns on everybody. Hasn't he already kind of turned and every doing it man, he's, he's, he's. Elitist is Bronx from in the top heel. I was thinking about this the other day over the weekend. I was like, who's the top? He'll he'll goodguys bag guys be MS. Well, that's a different brand. That's. Oh, no, he's on smackdown. Yeah, raw. Are they? I can't even find within no. Bre- was idle fucking baby. Baby Bells are the one the bells are allowed on both shows.

Fin Ballard's going to be wrestling, wrestling, resonating, resonating dollars. It'd be wrestling defy, oh, I inner gender match. There's so many cards I can't even came.

It just messes up the composition when I was driving around the block, looking for a parking spot at bar, wrestling downtown at one point. I had to stop in the intersection because Brian and Melissa were crossing the street and they were talking about something and yet his roller bag. And I was just thinking to myself, man, nobody's going to fuck with this guy while he's walking around some people have a hair shirt. I've heard Brian cage has Herr tights. That's what I'm saying. Are you serious? You've heard that now. Try and get beat up, come on, Tom. Do you want to do?

The main event is triple h versus undertaker with John Michael, with Shawn Michaels in his corner and with Kane in his corner, a sitting mayor going to Saudi Arabia to support his fake brother, Australia, Australia, but that the the rumor is they announced it yet. The rumor is it's going to be the tag in Saudi Arabia? Yes. So I think Shawn's on TV next week it seems like it's, it's all but official that Shawn Michaels will return to the ring. It's crazy.

That Georgia's husband had a really cool wrestling podcast words out there. Man. The word is out dude. Yeah, it's only been half a decade and then he's into it into the show. We've inspired him as as well of countless other. I mean, really we're responsible for the revolution in women women's revolution, the revolution and independence wrestling.

We need to get you some new blades heard heard your plates dole dole out that quickly. I used it and why, and you get a hold of us and let us know what times doing wrong here. If the blade goal after two shirts, how could how could that be? That was so sharp and as dealing as. As I've used twice. The only thing that I can say is that the fabrics of those shirts are thicker than the shirts. I used it on, but I don't think that could be it. Speaking of murdering Ohs in Charlotte, the other night I bring the microphone out for the end of the show, and occasionally they'll, they'll ask me a question or want me to say something.

I know she was a long time ago. They all look the same. I mean that use me me. I am going to excuse myself. Excuse me. We'll see you later. This guy thinks three time WWE babe of the air looks like all the rest of them. Right hall of fame edges, wife, I saw getting duct it the decade. This is the woman. Oh, man. I wish you'd been watching wrestling when Linda McMahon was running for office because this is the clip they used to show all the time. Of Vince made her bark like a dog in the ring, get down on all fours and bark like a dog. And so the Democrats would show this on TV and be like is this is this who want running cut Attica. And now she's what in charge of small businesses pretty good. Tichy Trish used to have didn't win. No, no, no, no. That's why she and an hubby donated a million trillion bazillion dollars to Trump. And now she's got a cabinet position. She got what she wanted. Gosh, I forgot about the last time. Vince McMahon and Linda McMahon spoke. To each other? Yeah. Would you say they took that family picture in the Oval Office? Right after Trump was inaugurated. So around, then probably around then. The whole family was together. Just can't believe. Here it is here it is. I I wanted to find her in her trademark cowboy hat cowboy hat all the time. Cool. She when she came in to the WWE I feel like the first assigned assignment. The first thing she did was she managed. Test attack the tag team of test and Albert. And so then they were referred to as t a. Haven't they walked out with board Trish. Fitness model from Canada. Some of these pictures from the attitude era vary inappropriate. No kidding. Have to delete my history. Anyway, she's fighting, Alexa bliss. What are you gonna do about it? What are you gonna do about it. Hey, chunk face what you going to do about a all right, good stuff. We really need Vincent here because now just gonna start googling myself, your yourself? No, not myself. It'd be pretty funny. I'm not opposed to googling myself Mr.. Steve Austin, let me explain them to you. I pulled up pictures at Trish Stratus to to try to jog Tom's a memory, and then it took everything I had to give it some to keep his pants on. I did have someone asked me if we got any samples blue, I don't believe we have absolutely one hundred. So tomor chewed him. I just put him in my coffee. He puts a little a little between the cheek and the gun. Wow. What I don't like that while one bit. All right, everyone. Let's let's let's get still talking about Trish. Let's get back tax. Hey, Tom, love it already. What is it? You love, brushing your teeth. Don't you? I do. I do it several times if the right way to. That's right. So many people are brushing their teeth wrong. Did you know that? I did not long enough. They forget to change the brush on time and you know whose fault it is because these big brands big, big brush. They're always brushed for oil. Most brands, they focus on selling flashy gimmicks rather than better brushing, not quip. No quick is really good. What makes quips oh, different. Tom. Teaches you how to brush teaches you how to brush correctly. Yeah, they know how long you're supposed to do it in every. You know going along buzz. Okay. Flip the script. That's right. Coming back the other way. That's right. And I'll tell you straight up. My dentist has noticed, and that's noble shit. My dentists has noticed. And did you a mess before? Did you tell Mike, hey, quit. I said, ma'am, I cannot share with you my secrets, but I appreciate the vote of confidence. Hey, everybody loves quip Oprah was on the list that time.

Have you heard about this? Is that going to be streaming. I think you can watch it's. Yeah, it's going to be available somewhere on fight or something. But they pulled him in. And I guess he, he feels like he can call that match, and there won't be any chicanery in the ways that he doesn't enjoy. Nothing's going to be made a joke of and he'll be able to call it and you know hope for the best there. That will be interesting if they do things that he does not approve of, and he just needs to shut us fact trap. Yep, Jimmy's back. Great. Is it going to be him and somebody else? I wonder? Well, I think shivani was already announced shut up to those to get along. I don't know why wireless things where you just you hit Jim cornet you're like, I just assume he hates when I sometimes I'll listen to his drive through show just questions. Right. And a lot of times it's just like, what about this guy? What about this guy? Like? What about Ron Simmons? Don callous, busy. Good loves Don callous. Yeah, I like that. Well, he would have been there during what he still have been. During the jackal. Right. Definitely. You know what's so funny is I like it's like one of those things where all of a sudden I just got like a flash in my head. I was like, oh, right. It was like he's started the whole. The what were they? The truth commission? Was it called. Nannette now I can't remember. I had a flash and now it's gone. Well, he he did the promos every week where he was like, right saying shit about WW is that's for sure. Darn kala. Yeah, always interesting. When when Cornick it's pulled back into. Into service. The older I get the more I like people like cornet just someone with strong point of view that doesn't really give a shit what other people are going to think. Even if it's an unpopular opinion, staunch liberal that always helps to do you like it when it's a person. It's like super right wing point of view. No. But if they actually truly believe in what they're saying, I do find it interesting to listen to them as opposed to like someone that's just saying, 'cause that's why you are given the card carrying member of the Rush Limbaugh in club. Oh, absolutely rush. You know what's so he was addicted to pill, so he banged nanny, you know what about Lille rush hour. You flying brave man. His hair is so on point. I never even imagined him with like that. Like really close fate or whatever. They took the gauges out of his ears, and I think they may even gotten the surgery. But he's doing great, and it was a fun little bit with the boosters. I don't know. I try to get them down there, man. Yeah, but that kinda got you would've tried to package piledriver. They had like a little booster seat like like they used to have Pizza Hut. You know how like booster seats used to just be like this piece of plastic. That was just the case talking to a guy that's us. Those things right to see this little thing. Yeah. I imagine downtown Bruno going around Denver yesterday, trying to find ones. It cannot take this borrow this. That's what it was. Yeah, he, he was the leader of the truck truth commission, but I was thinking of he was like the original leader of the auditees. Yes, yes, like, yeah, because he was because curb was in the the truth commission thing because that was like that weird like they were from like. South Africa or some shut. Remember Corrigan was wearing like Jerry fatigues and shit. Yes, free South Africa, you some bitch. Okay. And then, but that's for like a second. It reminds me of the powers of pain because for a second, the acolytes when they came together where managed by Don callous. Okay. And then he then, I guess he went to w. but the powers of pain when they first came out fucking baron von Raschke manage them. And then you remember that he wore, oh, he used to wear a hood neck not a mask like running up big. That kind of sounds familiar. Yeah. And then again, vanished very quickly. I think that might even be like the only time he was in WWF, which is crazy. Wait what there was something that that was dropping last night on the network after raw that I was like, oh, that that I was like, I gotta check that out with the fuck. Was it. What the fuck was, what the fuck was it tell me what the fuck it was. One of my favorite shows probably that they have on there. Look, here's a picture of von rescue with the hood on. I remember when I was a kid. I remember thinking that was so cool. Oh, you know what it was is photo shoot with Scott hall shot up. Yeah, that's I'm going home to watch that. I like that show. I do like it too, or they just sit there and look at pictures. Cornets was gripe cornets was go. That was funny when they showed them. We villainy Louisville, Charlotte, right? Louisville, Kentucky. I know it anywhere. You know what they should do a photo shoot with Kevin Nash because I, I was thinking about this too. The other day when when Nash talks about like people like, yeah, you remember that you remember that store you were there and I don't fuck. Remember. He's like guys talk about things. They're like, you were there for those. Remember. Because he was not a guy who took a lot of. Drugs? Well, I was gonna say, you know, chair shots to the fuck and head take an inordinate amount of Soma. I'm kicking if you bring a bottle of whisky to my house, I'm dumping it down the fucking drain, but that wasn't always the case, I'm guessing. Oh, fuck and take or making me gargle shots, Jack, fuck you. Take. Do this other at man. Sibley Burbank into the mind for those. So fucking wonderful. There are still folks out there who get us mixed up. Let the record show. I have never get. Into the microphone. There's all you to mixed up. I'm just saying there.

Like back in, you know, eighteen years ago whenever it was remember me and my buddies in college, but really, we should buy WWF stock. Putting Tom through college effort through college right now and post graduate. Now there's Robin Hood, and there's another stock just like that that we can. Yeah, yeah. And now we have a way to do that without having to, you know, be, you know, financial investment up Deloitte and Touche. Yes, right. There's no. I mean, there's no commission fees this.

No, we commended the next WWE. So it's like a, there was no Stocker condition. I simply mentioned a point at which it would have been good. Right? But I did not say there would have been easier we had. No. So for the next thing, Mike that you can use. Robinhood to do that. Cousins, the corn syrup company is the stock. Yeah.

I can't believe it finally happened. That is wild. Yeah. I mean, we're sitting here joking about it, but I didn't know. No, no, it's like that's my I, my impulses to. I gotta make joke because I'm uncomfortable can just raise lower Trump in the cell next door. It's coming. No, what I appreciate about someone like Bill Cosby going down like this is that it's it's such a thorough destruction just to show that that kind of awful awful act will ruin everything not just the victims lives, but your entire legacy is now gone because of what you did. Well, he's lucky. He's not locked up down at Cobb County. He been doing hard time. If big Bubba was live, if you ever get a chance go to Cobb County Georgia, you doing you be serving haunt. I, my one regret from all in weaken as we didn't get a chance to see the Jim Johnson like unplugged. Yeah, whatever it was that would have been cool. What do you think gyms up United? Probably writing a concept record something. I hope saved his money. I hope he he, he has to get royalties. Right? Because his name is as credit as right, like he hasn't writing? Yeah, because I mean, that's like with like songs and shit. It's like, but I mean, you could also see where it would be like you were morass what is, but it you see his name, right? So I think he must be getting some some. He wrote the song. I mean that's with songs such a fuck in lucrative thing. He writes the songs that leads the world to the ranch, right? He writes the songs he writes songs, I remember seeing a clip of like a Cohen writer way back in the day talking about like he's like, have you ever saw me in a sketch led some point? My character would sing a song. He's like, because if you wrote a song you got like a separate check. Shoehorn. Like as soon as he found that he was like, fuck it. Oh.

Mine is the midnight express with Jim cornet Jim corn at you? I was this is where I had that now. Honestly, I just it's the simple pleasures of life because I've got just this piece of shit TV that I bought for five bucks. Yeah, in the garage. That's a great story. Fuck in tube. I haven't told the story on the. I think you have just the reiterate quickly. I walk into a yard sale at church and the guy just goes, you wanna buy that TV. What that? He's like, five bucks. Mike, that TV he's like, I'll throw in the TV stand and a DVD player. Okay. Yeah, I'll give you Fynske for that needed to other guys to help me carry the fucking TV into the truck. But yeah.

Bobby, I go in and I'm like, because I've moved all of the. Wrestling DVD's DVD's are in the garage for now. We'll see. We'll see if DVD's wind up in the house Glenis. I'd like to put my DVD. All the DVD's like movies and shit. I got like sixteen boxes of fuckin-, believe it.

But all the wrestling DVD's were up and stuff. And I and I saw there was a stack of like small jewel cases and I knew just seeing them from across the garage. I knew those of the gym cornet and midnight express. Yeah, DVD's. So I'm like, here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna pop in disc. One going to start playing. I'm gonna walk the dog. And then when I come back, just there's, I don't know why there's something comforting in the idea that I'm going to come back and the midnight express is going to be wrestling on that TV when I come back and watch, you know, a few minutes of and the fact that it's an old tube set. Yeah. The DVD's looked better than they do on a flat screen. Fuck. Yeah. So I walk in and they're wrestling Mr. wrestling and magnum TA. And wrestling to arrest XI's wrestling. Okay.

Chicagoans Gather To Heal Wounds Of Racism

"Hi I'm Jen. White and this is reset in honor of the Reverend Dr Martin Luther King Junior residents residents from the Greater Chicago area are coming together this week to do the work of healing the wounds of racism a local initiative truth racial healing and transformation greater. The Chicago has planned racial healing events across the city to help residencial from the trauma of racism. This Tuesday January twenty first the National Day of racial. Oh healing kicked off with three days of events with us now to discuss the week at its purpose is Jose Rico director of the truth racial healing and transformation greater Chicago or T. RH TI Greater Chicago. Also with US peeler Dane read associate director of the organization. Welcome to you both. Thank you thank you so much so I tell us what's planned for the week week. So what we're planning this week is part of a national effort to be able to start to have some really hard conversations and necessary conversations here in a Chicago to recognize how racism has really damaged our humanity here in the city and so we have over thirty groups nonprofit organizations nations government entities and neighborhood groups that decided to come together in gather to be able to basically share our stories and be able to reclaim our humanity from the false narratives that racism puts out there and start to repair those relationships. We could see what transformed Chicago. Look like. You say these are difficult conversations. Why are they difficult? Well most of the reasons is because when we meet somebody that seems different than us. We have a lot of assumptions about who they are what their life is and what possibly their dreams and aspirations are and so when we have circles a lot of times we uncover that we have very similar similar dreams and aspirations and our own internal biases are the ones they give me this filter distort who I think you are and sometimes are the big barriers for us to be able to accomplish what we WANNA accomplish. The better Chicago for all of us are Jose mentioned circles. Talk about exactly what this circle is so circles are safe spaces very necessary safe spaces where people from all walks all pres come together and share from the heart share honestly. Our issues are triumphs. Our goals our aspirations the things that we want to see happen in our lives. And then the city they're circles circles are facilitated by two truth racial healing and transformation facilitators and. It's an amazing exchange of people where we can just see our similarities. See the things that bring us together. As opposed to the things that separate us the events are already underway. How's it going so far so the feedback that we've been receiving has been incredible? Many have an assumption that we're GonNa go to these circles and automatically talk about racism and one of the realizations that people must get. Is that you know. Racism is not necessarily a bad individual that we want to talk about or the circles are not places where people could say I am not a racist but it's really uncovering how. Racism is in everything everywhere that we are and we just need to be very intentional about dismantling racism at particularly anti blackness in the city of Chicago and especially now anti immigrant sentiment. That's here in the city zhivago sorted uncovers a lot of those biases and will we found you know in the organizations that are doing this. is they see this as an important step for many of them that are trying to implement racial equity agendas to be able to actually get to know their employees in the workplace in much very different lights than on what their title is what. The role is starting to again form. Those common bonds in those relationships that I think are going to help advance the work that they want to do in their organizations nations. We've seen also to that within these circles is that a lot of the micro aggressions that take place are not always malicious. They can be a cultural friends or just a difference in upbringing difference. And so we want to actually Utilize these spaces so that we can become more culturally sensitive to one another another especially in the workplace. Let's talk a little bit more about the National Day of racial healing and the roots of the day. Yes so this is the fourth annual it was started by the Kellogg Foundation. Listen here in Chicago. It is hosted by the woods. Fun of Chicago. We have an incredible group of partners here in Chicago the united way of Metra Chicago's hosting circles rickles and is also a big sponsor feel foundation. We have the American Indian Center a whole bunch of organizations that brought it here to Chicago to really start having those conversations at the community level that oftentimes do not happen and one of the really interesting aspects of what we're doing this year is that we aren't tension Lee building circles in black and brown communities in neighborhoods where invest southwest are at to make sure that residents from those communities are able to build those relationships nations ships because in order for us to transform those neighborhoods we need to transform those relationships so you mentioned invest south last and this is something from the lightfoot administration does explain a little bit more about that plan. So you know what the city's doing in the lightfoot administration is doing is you're marking or directing close to seven hundred and fifty million dollars of Public funds in ten neighborhoods in the city of Chicago to spur economic development those neighborhoods great opportunity to really invest needed resources in those communities and so now community advisory boards are being organized to direct. cuddles funds are happening. What's we're doing is we are asking in some of those groups some of those members in those communities to come together and racial healing circles manipulate when we talk about what happens in the racial healing circles? Also how do you help. People who participate move this very intimate experience out into their work in community and in their organizations we we provide them with stories like anyone cohort you have people who are sharing their experiences and sharing their ways of survival basically if you will into to the city and so what we do. We provide a space where people can see themselves and their situations and other people's situations and learn from that and then we also provide them resources sources where they can after the circle they can follow up and then they can go into their communities into their workspaces and implement some of these things that they've learned while I want to hear from one of the racial healing circle practitioners. Here's terrence sharing. Why he thinks Chicago and should participate? What I like to remind people is that the racism is not the shark is actually the water right? It's everywhere it's all around us and so it's not that the healing is situation that sparked just by racist moment the the healing happens because we all endured a system that's built on racism and we all need to hugh so my encouragement to the people in Chicago is that none of us is without need of being better. None of us is without the need to heal and hearing each other connected with each other ultimately will not only make better together and make a better place to live but boy it makes you better make sure the best version of yourself or whatever endeavors. You're part of so that's interesting tearing says. Racism is not the shark. It's the water an in Jose. I mean put that into some context worse when we're talking about the history of segregation in Chicago. What part of that? What is the water with part of that is the shark so you know when we look at the outcomes of Chicago and whether we talk about the twenty year Beth gap between African Americans and European Americans in the city or what we talk about the dislocation of four billion dollars of wealth from black families in the south and west side when we talk about how Labor from immigrant and families is just taken and the dignity is also taken? All of those things do not happen in a vacuum all of those things come with very explicit policies and practices says many of those that are sanctioned by corporations by government by the way things are done and we need to shine a light on those policies and practices says and say. Hey what we think is business as usual and what we think we're doing is the right thing to do is actually contributing to the debt gap to the dislocation of well to the ability for people to be vilified alienated. And so what we want to be able to do is shine a light within the organizations to see what is it that they're doing this perpetuating racist policies and practices but also at the policy level. This is why it's exciting. Government is also involved in. This is for them to actually look at. What are the outcomes we WANNA get? And what do we need to do differently to bracingly reverse. What's happening and reverse engineer with what we want to be able but accomplish and what are the policies and practices that we need to change? I want to bring in another voice Taylor lay. She's a first time participant interracial healing circle. Taylor welcome to the program. Hello so why did you choose to take part in this. I've actually been working with a program called the Fellowship Initiative now since two thousand sixteen and it's made up of of about fifty five young black and Brown youth there now seniors in high school and I've worked with them in the passage of being a tutor and a writing coach and and to my surprise racial healing circles. Were taking place so I had no prior knowledge And had done no research beforehand. So that was how I came to know that it was was happening that particular day. And what was your experience like. Yeah so what's very interesting is that I've known these particular fellows for about three years is now I started with the last cohort. And then the new cohort happen of students. I mean and they've known each other for three years. They've known me for three years and yet yet the experience was still transformative and so what happened during that circle was deep questions were asked and fellows have participated and many any team building exercises before. They've gone to Costa Rica. They've gone on long hiking trip and yet this bill was very different so the questions got at talk about time when there was a false narrative that you challenged about your identity. Talk about an experience where you had to you. Talk to someone who is different from you and how that connected you to a higher sense of self and purpose and your community and so my experience again was very in powering and transformative and getting to know another side of the fellows and them getting to know another side of each other and me. It was very moving and and surprising because again we've known each other for so long unless still change. These are very young. People who participated in in this cohort. Why would you tell other young people all to participate in these conversations because I think unfortunately oftentimes people think this is the work of adults? And I'm quoting here but you know the grownups but tell us about the importance of the youth boys sure so I am committed to serving communities of color and I work with students as young as three and at the collegiate that level and so I think that when you participate in a racial healing circle you are working on yourself. You're working with others in your community and sometimes encountering things that are on the subconscious level. You don't even know they're there and so I need to work on that and I need to better understand myself and my neighbor Uber and so I think that's really important for youth one for them to recognize. They're not in anything alone and then too because as you heal you are inspired to do for others and the world you know who say. We've seen a big push from young people In activist circles. And this is a different kind work. Why is it important to start this practice of racial healing with the young folks in our city? Yeah one of the reasons why this work is really important to me personally. Donnelly is because I think that as an older activist I feel. It's our responsibility to create the spaces for younger activists to be Able Bul to learn or practice. That's going to help in their own self development within a community of people that love and care for them and so for me the and for many of us we have right now close to one hundred racial healing practitioners from all walks of life. Our target audience are people like Taylor and others because we WANNA GONNA be able to provide them with some of the tools some of the wisdom and the support for them to do what they think is best but for them to know that they could always come back to tool community of Whether or not going to be judged where we're not going to try to fix them well we WANNA be able to support them and that's one of the most important aspects of this circle work. Nope Eli what I hear. Jose talking about there is really planting seeds using these racial healing circles as a way to give people tools that they can then carry out regardless right listen age regardless of their position. Is that how you view the work as well absolutely and I just wanted to say that I really really really Love and see much much value in the millennial Gen X. The gen Z.. Populations I think they're widely misunderstood. They have a kind of fire. That's extremely unique in. So Rico an I just have a great time finding ways to really utilize their talents in the seat planting because they are the future they are our future and they're on fire and we need to let them do their thing with guidance. We WanNa be guides and just shell with them and help them carry on his work with us. That's Pilar Ordain read Associate Director of Truth Racial Healing and transformation Greater Chicago.

SNAP Changes Plus This Weeks See Hear Eat

"Hi I'm Jen. White and this is reset coming up a new colleague from our sister station vocal. Oh drops by to to give you some tips on things to see here and eat this weekend. You know it's a place you can take your kids out to. It's a place you can take your friends to. It's new to the city so oh is not just a site for tourists aside for everyone here for all residents but I the trump administration just tightened up the rules for who can get snap benefits or food stamps. The changes only applied to able bodied adults under age. Fifty with no kids or other dependents. But that's still could affect tens of thousands of people here in Illinois. WBZ's Odette Yussef explains the rationale behind the changes. So I think it's really telling to look at the Headline guests that was on the release that the US Department of Agriculture. Our culture put out yesterday announcing the rule change the headline was USD a restores original intent of snap a second chance not a way of life so as this is alluding to this work requirement has actually been in effect since the mid nineties. This was part of the welfare reform. Act that Bill Clinton signed when he was president was interesting. Then I went back and I watched the old youtube video of when The signing ceremony took place and former President Clinton kept talk referring to people as being quote trapped on welfare trapped on welfare. Okay so the idea at that time was that people were perhaps taking advantage wantage of benefits like snap. They were not working when perhaps they could have been. And so what this rule change does. Is it really sort of hearkens back to the reasoning of that time which is that There are people out there that could and should be working self sufficient but instead they're taking the advantage of the system and they're relying on these benefits. You spoke with folks over at the Greater Chicago food. Depository where goal is to end hunger in our area. What did they have to say? Yeah the person I spoke with Sofi Milem. She's the senior director of public policy at the Greater Chicago food depository and I just straight up astor. Sure are we going to see more people go hungry in Illinois. I think we will definitely be seeing more people struggling to put food on the table. You know this is definitely a program that for this particular population of able bodied adults. They don't qualify for a lot of Assistance Program snap is one of the few assistance programs available to them. And so now the you know the reality is that were taking away their food assistance. That's not going to help them find work. It just means it now. They're struggling to find work and they're struggling to put food on the table. So there is a work requirement for some snap benefit recipients but in past years many states received waivers. How does that work yeah I an Illinois has for a long time been one of those states? The way it works is that every year states can submit a waiver application to the federal government government. Saying look you know. We've got several counties or several areas. Where there just aren't enough jobs or where the unemployment rate is really high And so oh you can't reasonably expect these folks to find jobs and so for a long time. The whole state of Illinois actually had a waiver due to this work requirement but we started to see that change in two thousand eighteen because that year for the first time in about a decade Illinois head into exclude one of its counties from that waiver That was dupage county because the unemployment rate was too low there and so in order to maximize the amount of the state that did get the waiver it had to exclude dupage county. Well the last time you and I spoke about this gen which was just last week. We learned that that for Twenty Twenty Cook County. The most populous county in the state was also not going to be included in the waiver. And so everybody was sort of gearing up for this huge change. That's supposed to take effect on January. First which is to figure out how fifty thousand people who are going to be affected by this in Cook County alone are going to be able to Either get work or retain their food stamps or get exempted to this work. Requirement will now with this new rule. Change we're talking about as many as a hundred and forty thousand people service by Illinois Department of Human Services Offices all over the state potentially needing to fulfil this work requirement as well as as soon as April first that's WBZ's debt Yousaf and we're talking about a new trump administration ruled that could cause nearly seven hundred thousand people across the country to lose their snap snap benefits also known as food stamps. The rule would touch people in all corners of Illinois and it goes into effect soon April first coming up in about ten minutes on the show. We continue our series series closing the gap today to medical professionals on the front lines of contraceptive care. Tell us about some of the barriers women face in accessing contraceptives. And what's being done about it in the Chicago area stay tuned for that Oh Illinois Democratic Governor Jay Pritzker had some strong words after this role was announced in a statement he said quote president. Trump trump is now resorting to the ugliest possible tactics to distract the American people from his impeachment and support from the far right denying food to the most vulnerable people in our society. This is cruel and my administration has fought him at every turn but it would also have to say you know. I feel like that's really the thrust of what the governor had to say. We got more information really early from the Illinois Department of Human Services which is tasked with actually enforcing this rule and one thing that they have been. Noting is that while the federal government in is making these changes to tighten the work requirement. It's not providing additional funding to help people meet the work requirement. And so you know something that could look like. Mike is more federal funding for so called. Snap employment and training programs. These are programs that are geared to help people be workforce ready you know. There's no funding funding for services such as transportation coming with this which could be quite critical in particularly rural areas of the state where public transportation may be lacking in and people may not actually have the physical means to get two jobs that has been a big issue for the state when it comes to enforcing this it's going to be a huge bureaucratic eurocratic lift and there's no extra money to enforce it. You also spoke with an expert on state and federal issues related to the snap program and he highlighted another aspect of the rule change they actually relates to how state economies will be affected. Let's take a listen. Snap is always been very responsive to economic trends when lots of people lose their jobs and lose their income they need temporary assistance putting food on the table and snaps there to help them. This rule eliminates that option and so- snapple apple not be responsive to recessions and recessions will hurt more for low income. People losing jobs because they won't be eligible for more than three months of snap benefits under this rule So Jen that was Ed Bolan. He's the senior policy analyst at the Center on Budget and policy priorities which is a non-partisan Sort of group that helps states figure out how apply for waivers and what he's talking to is another aspect of this rule. Change hasn't been widely discussed. which is that? It's GonNa Really Change. How states are able to to respond to recessions in the past when a recession has hit? And there's been a sudden spike in unemployment states have been able to use those quick turns in unemployment numbers to apply for a waiver from these work exemptions. That has gone away so states are going to have to wait for a much longer periods of time Before they have the data that they can use to demonstrate that they need this waiver from the work requirement which means that the recessions are going to be felt for much longer longer period of time in states before they get the help. So what's next. Do we expect any legal challenges to the rule. I am not aware of legal challenges and the experts I spoke with didn't say say that they had any knowledge of any. I think many of them are hopeful that there will be but in the immediate future. We're looking at Sort of a battery of frontline line service organizations such as healthcare providers mental health care providers. Food Pantries all of these agencies that interface with the people that are going to be affected by this are going to have to learn how to properly screen people to figure out if they are going to be exempted from this work requirement. Perhaps they actually are disabled which it turns out that a high proportion portion of these so-called able bodied individuals actually are not able bodied. They're going to find out if perhaps they even have children and so we're GONNA see a huge effort to try hi to get as many people exempted as possible and for the rest of them. Get them into work training programs or volunteer opportunities educational opportunities that will meet the requirement that Oh that USA from WBZ's race class and communities DASCOMB at.
