Ryan Cabrera and WWE Star Alexa Bliss Are Engaged

"I think that social media is a reality in this world In the world that we live in in the world of sports entertainment. And i think that we have to learn how to live with it and i think we can actually use it as a tool for example recording this on sunday and today yesterday at the time this podcast comes out. It was everywhere. Alexa bliss announces that she's engaged A lot of alexa bliss fans are so happy for her lot of alexa. Bliss fans are very sad. Because i guess they thought that alexa bliss was going to marry them until she got engaged. It was so you're saying there's a chance. I saw on the not sam wrestling discord room. Where all are not. Sam shells that are signed up to patriot. Dot com slash. Sam wrestling. That we all get to chat There were a couple of them. That were upset. That alexa was engaged because they thought that that was going to be them. Unfortunately it's not but don't worry you still got the patriot community. You still got us. Not sam shells that are there for you. it's not. it's not all bad news but it was everywhere. She posted this video of of ryan. Cabrera popstar cabrera who she's been very publicly dating Proposing tour beautiful thing. You love is a wonderful thing and seeing join in holy matrimony and become even happier is wonderful. It's one of the happiest things if you are with the right person. The day the night the evening the afternoon that you get engaged one of the happiest times ever just such an expression of joy. It's beautiful. I love it but everybody's talking about it. I mean alexa. Bliss is a huge star. You know you've got. Wwe tweeting about it. And i probably should be. It's it's a little bit absurd to ignore it. You know not only is one of the biggest stars really realistically alexa. Bliss is one of the biggest stars in. wwe male or female. She's one of the most famous people in. Wwe so you know. And this is big. Wwe is big time. Now you got sasha banks over here on the mandalorian which you see. Sasha banks one of the big another one of the biggest stars in wwe and probably the biggest tv show. that's on the air right now. You see that happening which weird. The wwe isn't making a bigger deal out of that. Like if i were. Www shouting it from the rooftops. But you've got that going on at the same time you got to cherry public engagement. You know i mean. I feel like we should let's angle for a reality show. Let's get on the phone. I was watching total balas over the weekend. And i was like you know what i miss. When they would go to wrestlemainia. I was just sitting there waiting for them to go to wrestling. Like oh wait. There is no more wrestling. And that's when. I realized that i was watching total bells for the wrestling parts. They still got daniel bryan on the show. Obviously no more john cena. They're not going to wrestling shows anymore. So it's like oh. I like the balanced. But i'm still you know living in brima to seven but they're not gonna wrestling shows anymore so yes so let's get alexa. Bliss rang cabrera. Let's get blissfully something or other. You know you got bliss already in there you you got it. But here's what. I think needs to happen now that we've acknowledged. Wwe is acknowledged it's all over wwe social media platforms. I think that you gotta lean into it. And i think that you should use it. I think that this can be a lot of fun. Especially because ryan cabrera is also a public person. Here's the way. I think this needs to go. You had this segment on raw last week. Where nikki cross is talking to alexa. And there's this acknowledgement that they used to be friends. Which i think is great. We're not pretending that the election nikki partnership never happened is a big part of. Wwe at the time you know. We're still acknowledging it and alexis doing that. Weird phony friendly like almost like i'm in a trance. Peewee herman thing and nikki cross tells her alexa you gotta pick mere the fiend and alexa. As if it doesn't bother it all goes. Oh okay. I pick him. And walks away and nikki crosses befuddled by the whole thing befuddled. I love this. I think we need to keep this going. You know i look. This is the type of stuff. I want for alexa bliss and the this is why i say. Keep the fiend away from the universal championship. Keep the fiend away from the wwe championship because these are the types of stories. You can tell you know. I think that we should go back and look at who are friends. Were in annex t the start telling those stories and have somebody come out. Go like lexi. What are you doing things. You're you're not the same person what what's happening. I pick him and you know over. The course of a couple of weeks have her abandoning oliver. All friends and then finally ryan cabrera comes out on raw and it's like real life now it's like is this alexa. Bliss is this. What's her name lexi kaufman in real life. I don't know. I only know people by their wrestling names. But is this the real alexa. Bliss from real life. is the character alexa bliss now. We're mixing everything up. Which is what we should all be doing. That's the way wrestling is at. Its best mix everything up. And you've ryan cabrera out on raw and he's like alexa. I love you and she's like i love you. Do you know like yeah. Of course it you love me. I love you. We're we're doing great and he's like well. You're not the same person i thought. When we got engaged it would shake you out of this transfer inches. I'm not in a trance. I'm just seeing things for what they are for. The first time ryan cabrera goes lexi. I need you need you to pick you. Pick me or the fiend. She's kind of taken aback. She's like i didn't realize he felt that way. Ryan that's how i feel and she's like well net case i pick him. He's like what and then you hear bumble bumble bumble and the lights go out. Eat whatever those sounds are and tom phillips going. Oh no not here that's alexa. Bliss fiance pop sensation ryan cabrera and the red lights come on and the fiend is behind ryan cabrera and ryan cabrera's looking around and he's looking at alexa bliss. I what are you doing here. Like this is our real life and then he realized he gets his goosebumps. You realize the fiend is right behind him so he turns around and the phoenix cox's head and sticks his tongue out of his mask grabs ryan cabrera vice skull dips him over gives him a kiss on the forehead and he sister abigail ryan cabrera. Alexa bliss is real life. Fiance get sister abigail an alexa bliss just standing over him smiling. I love it man. I mean i i think that why not why not. I feel like it would be good for everybody involved. Like let's let's blur the lines here guys. Let's not pretend there's two separate entities as it's happening eventually we can tell the story of how like. Oh this is so wild in my personal and blah blah blah but while it's happening muster blending these lines with blurred altogether be like. That's a real fiancee right. Yup like the best is when you're trying to explain to a non wrestling fan. What storyline and what's not storyline. And they get confused because you're a little bit confused because you're not one hundred percent sure where the lines are and who's getting worked by what maybe. wwe tweeting about this was part of the storyline. All along are they even really engaged. I don't even know anymore. I don't know anything anymore. I guess i'm just going to sit here and watch monday night. Ron finds out. Find out what happens next. Because that's the way we should be watching anyway. Just let it play out and see what happens. I would love that if that happened. I would love it if that happened. Socket in our discord room. Says i love that. Sam has cabrera taking bumps like the fiend doesn't use the middle claw. He hit the mandible claw. After maybe alexa bliss puts the mandible claw him or something like that but is taking sister abigail. I mean we are laying out ryan cabrera. 'cause i want e. news. I want entertainment tonight. I want whatever extra whatever. Entertainment shows are left on television. I want people magazine. People dot com. I want everybody posting videos of being like popstar ryan cabrera. Remember him. Well i remember. I remember will now. He's getting laid out by the fiend on monday night raw. Because here's what happens. If you have a pop star that you grew up idolizing and he's getting laid out. Here's the way that works. You get the people who don't watch wrestling to not only get a glimpse of monday night raw but they get a glimpse of the theme. The is one the most unique properties the wwe has. The fiend is the type of visual. That went a non wrestling fan watches. They go what the hell is that. I'm going to have to tune in and see what that's all about. That's one of the strengths of the fiend. And if you got footage of ryan cabrera eating a sister. Abigail and his real life fiance alexa. Bliss is looking on happily in that weird fien state. You got money bro. you got money. I hope they're already thinking in that direction. If not. i'm in text. Bruce richard because somebody has to tell them get ryan cabrera on that show and lay that out. I think it'd be great. I think it'd be great. Congratulations to the two of them. But i have to believe that ryan cabrera. Whatever time of his life. I know i would if my fiance was a wrestler and she was like hey would you mind coming to raw and having the fiend. Give you sister abigail. I'd be like number one. That's awesome number two. After the show me. I get a picture of him in full gimmick. I really wish i could do that. I really wish i mean. I wish. I wish that. I could have one of the shows that i was at the fiend was at too. I wish i could just go like hey bro. Can we take a picture with you. Still in your gimmick and not. Be a weirdo. That doesn't deserve to be backstage. Because man do. I want that picture a really really. Do

"This week, we are continuing with our watch of the second season of Veronica Mars with one episode from the Second Season The sixteenth but I dancing with the stars we entered this season of. Dancing with the stars with a fair amount of trepidation because fairly recently during the ramp up for this season Tom Bergeron did not I guess did not have his contract extended I think it's not like he was fired, but they just declined to pick him up again and along with that Erin Andrews also leaving Erin Andrews. I liked perfectly fine had nothing against her she wouldn't be a dealbreaker but Tov. Tom Is dancing with the stars? Yes. So there was a certain feeling amongst all the fan pages that I read. And myself and you Katherine. That will. That's it. We're done with dancing with stars. We're not going to watch it without him solidarity you know. But of course, it spangling charms Laura in. To see just exactly what kind of hot mess living. And when they announced the stars, Justina. Machado, who we've enjoyed on data time is on it and I don't know if there's anybody else was all that curious about. But I wanted to watch it for her to see how she did and just you know check in watch one episode of it, and if we hate it, we never have to watch it again or we can hate watch right which is certainly what most of the chat pages I was Leonardo. So here we come to episode one of Season Twenty, nine hosted now, as well as executive produced I believe. By, tyra banks, whom I don't have a whole lot history with I. Haven't watched any of her shows other than there was a Disney movie she did where she was adult who came to life. That's about all my daughter knows of her and that's pretty much about all over to but. There was a fear that she would not be a good host for this show over and above the fact that she's replacing somebody who was excellent host for the show..

My in my city Vince McMahon was at that absolutely tore the house down. You know Adrian Neville and been valor that follow and could not follow that match which is amazing because those two are the best wrestlers in the world right now but the crowd was so hyper for the Charlotte.

WWE's Sasha Banks makes long-awaited return, destroys Natalya and Becky Lynch For The Win

"Feels like a lot a new beginnings when you look at monday night raw. What was the newest beginning for you to me. It's sasha mbeki to me with sasha mbeki way way that played out and there's a lot of different layers to sasha and becky after what we saw last night i think sasha and becky the last night was done very very well. There people were invested. They were involved. They were a little little odd at times which toronto ten be especially with the way they treated natty. I was shocked to hear some of the response that there was but as far as physicality point of view from an intent point of view from a wow. This is where we're going to be going and we're excited from from my point of view. Sasha and becky got the job done and it was amazing. I sent out a tweet last night about sasha and and becky and the war has already begun. I don't know about you. Dave my social media was inundated with sasha and becky aki. Fans and man is split down the middle and man or they vocal and passionate about who they liked better. You know i'm glad you brought brought up that toronto crowd. We talked a lot about the crowd in toronto leading up the summer slam and how they're like a different type of crowd in toronto onta they could take over to show and we see that a lot of major cities but you don't know who they're going to boo and who they're going to cheer at summer slam. They seem to kind of follow their role. I it didn't feel like your typical. Toronto crowd completely different last night. Can you buy into the reaction that we heard in toronto when it came to sasha and becky last night yes absolutely and you know what even if i couldn't buy into the reaction on the television set i bought into the reaction the action myself. I'm not one of those guys that listens to the fans and reacts the way they do. I make my own decisions on what i seen seeing what i hear but there are a lot of people out there who will watch how the fans respond. They'll go in that direction. When i saw last night came off really well i mean i wasn't there a time. I don't know how far was back. Where where becky told natty that you you needed me yeah right. Did it becky lynn's til ninety nine hard. You need me now for your career yup well. I think that becky not needs sasha right. Now and last night was a great first step. Sasha hasn't been around a long time. I'm not quite sure why sasha hasn't hasn't been around in a long time. A lot of people on social media who are becky lynch fans seem to be burying sasha talking about how she went took her bat and her a ball and she went home and she's been bitching and moaning and crying. I don't get into all that stuff. All that i know is that she's been gone for a long time. She came back last night. She made an impact. Let me ask you this dave. Did you know from the minute. Her music hit that you were getting turn. Yes i did how outage because the reason why is because of becky like when when you look at becky right now and what she went through this past weekend whitney talia i got she got more support into toronto than i thought she would get and then you heard that crowd last night and you know this from social media becky's loved loved whether it's blind love or complete support. We've been dealing with it for months and months it's there. It's hard core so when sasha was gonna come out i i i had a feeling that this was going to be the few that they would go with you. Mentioned it has she had that right opponents since you won those titles at wrestlemania thirty eighty five i think the answer is no. Sasha is the perfect person for becky right now for me. It was the mimic the music hit. I knew the turn was coming and it wasn't because of anything that you had to say what point of the promo was natty at when sasha's music a kit when she was talking about her father. She's talking about the one year anniversary about jim the anvil neidhart dying passing away and all all of a sudden. That's when sasha decides to look at the music guy and go hit my music. Wow if that doesn't have he'll written all over it. I don't know what does so. I saw this coming from a mile away but it didn't matter. I was still into it. I thought the execution was great. Man the physicality we can analyze is the physicality between the chair shots the smack in the face i would i would not be shocked if some words were exchanged backstage and if there had to be a legitimate pull apart between those women wants. This was all said and done last night well. Let's get into that because i think it's it's worth getting into because there's a lot of me to that bone of what you just said bully and you talked about the physicality outside the ring when the attack attack happened. I let's go with the chair shots. A lot of people have been posting gifts of the chair shots at sasha's given becky. One looks like really nailed her in the back of the head. What did you think of those chair shots from sasha last night. Let's forget about what i thought i. What did you think i because you're the fan as is the fan. What did you think of those cheshire. I gotta be honest. I liked it. I it was hard hitting. It was physical. I didn't really notice about like now. You're looking at it up close and her getting nailed in the back of the head. There was some there was some real hatred behind. Those chair shots bully you know this. The chair has become a prop that you see almost all the time in the w._w._e. Correct yes saucy use as a tool that really told the story and had some angst so when i saw it last night i love what sasha dead. I think the angstrom there. I think the animosity was there. I i thought she used the chair appropriately. What we've seen so many other people use the chair but last night there was just something about that look on sasha's arches face that made those chair shots mean even more things got a little wonky because of positioning and the first two chair shots that sasha hit becky wit were clean and they were good. The third one was just okay okay because if you noticed by the third one sasha is now standing in front of becky and she's at the top of becky's head. You never wanna swing winging that angle. It's a really really bad angle and you're not able to properly swing that chair your most effective manner and then the fourth one came down and cry now <laughter>. It's cracked becky in the back of the head. Now it didn't full on cracker in the back of the head but the bottom of the chair kind of like where your thighs would rest on a chair. The chair was opening. You were sitting down that part. Hearted chair hit becky in the back of the head and that's when you see becky grab for the back of the head now. She didn't get caught with a lip. She got court with a smooth bottom. That's why we did not see her. Get busted open and then if you notice the minute she gets hit in the back of the head she she grabs the back of the head and she instinctually turns over to her side and goes into the fetal position. That's one of the body's defense mechanisms resumes the minute you feel like you're getting your ass kicked too hard you cover up and you go fetal in the animal kingdom. A lot of animals do that also as mammals we do that. You want to cover up. She goes into the fus fetal position but sasha wax her again in the arm and let me tell you from firsthand experience. When you get a hit in the arm in the shoulder it flat out sucks because you got a bone at the top of your shoulder that kind of sticks out and man when that metal comes comes slamming down into that bone it hurts and then you see becky flop right back over the good of the physicality was awesome. The intent the passion the thanks the anger the look on sasha's face told so much of a story like basically she was saying bitch. I'm coming back act takeover. Because i know superior wrestler. The negative was it could have been a little safer hope they go back and realize is that and make sure that they're great. Physicality is as safe as it can be now you mentioned like the chair shots and then that slap to the face and almost felt like like becky. Aki was kinda. Retaliating with the kicks you know do you get into that mode as as a competitor and as an athlete or just as a performer where yeah i that's. That's an instinct like right away. You get you get stung in the face. You're going to kind of come back with like a she gave up. I gave the push and then the kick. I mean is that retaliation. There is that instinct like what happened there with becky lynch i love the smack to the face and it made me chuckle because whenever whenever i would wrestle tommy dreamer it would always take him a while to get going in the match he would always be a bit lethargic when the bell rang and i would normally back them up to the corner and smack him as hard as i could in the face and that would wake him up and then he would just start throwing haymakers last night when i saw asada smack becky in the face i knew damn well that they were going outside of the box if i had the better dollar nobody. Nobody knew that that that was coming. Sasha didn't think to herself backstage. I'm gonna do this and not tell becky and i'm sure becky didn't know it was coming that smack woke becky up and then she says where's your balls at when you shaw becky kick back that was an instinctual she will kick that was getting my ass kicked and i have to defend myself and that little moment in time right there made made things very very real when sasha walks away. If you look at the smile on her face you saw a woman out out to prove something. You're only going to get one shot at this right there. Yep sasha's only gonna get one shot at returning and making an impact act and catching the lightning in a bottle so you can't go out there and sugarcoat anything you gotta go balls to the wall if anything goes wrong if deal with it backstage but it's all about catching that lightning in a bottle so i ask you did. They catch lightning last night. Yes they absolutely did. I said this to alex before the show like that. I i take it for that like <hes> you you you name the price i wanna see that because we've talked about becky and we talked about becky loyal fans that she has and what has she done and as she'd been booked and you know how it got watered down as we got closer to wrestlemainia thirty thirty five if you're putting her in the ring with sasha banks all that stuff gets completely thrown out the window just like last night how sasha i guess got got caught in the moment when she came out there us as fans yes. That's lightning in the bottle for us bully because i think this is the opponent that we've wanted to see becky go against all and why is this the perfect opponent for becky. Do you know why well bully you. Always say about getting in the ring with somebody. That's gonna rise to that next level. You always talk about you know. Hey you got you. Can't you can't fight your level or lower. You gotta get that person. That's a step up above saucers. That person that step above <hes> sasha is a better wrestler than becky becky is a is an over performer and at the top of the food chain right now becky can benefit from working with sasha because in being a better wrestler it gives becky an opportunity be to work up to the next level. Did you think that becky and natty was a good match. I thought it was a good match. There you go it was ah good because natty has been wrestling for a long long time and it made becky workup to nazis level and sasha being he probably in the top three women their saucers really good wrestler. I've put sasha over from day one on this show because survey in ring wrestling you video ability. I don't get caught up in that all that social media stuff with fans i looked at it strictly from the wrestling point of view and i know that this is going to bring out the best aston becky and if you don't believe me just go back and watch the stuff that they did an annex t like four or five years ago and again like what did we see when we saw charlotte charlotte and sasha we saw some of the best matches that we've seen in the women's division for a long time you put the dynamic of becky sasha especially with the fans and the interaction action. We're going to get for them. This is gonna take it to a completely different level in my opinion and the fan thing is the most interesting part last night like i said a sent out that tweet and then all of a sudden man it was like two waves hitting my twitter machine at the same time the becky fans and the shar and the and the sasha fans and and i could not believe the amount of sasha fans that actually were being vocal enough to they were saying she deserves it. I hope she's really hurt like. I couldn't believe that fans were hoping that becky was really hurt. I'll look at this from two points of view. Wow you're a real scumbag. If you're a fan who hopes that becky's really hurt and wow these girls did such a great job bob that these fans poured into it. It's a really good dynamic because i hear what you're saying. One point is like how could you say you hope. Somebody gets hurt but that you're that passionate it into it that you're actually going to post that tells you a story unto

"But this is a whole different kettle of fish, the state the last kicker anymore. This is the man I would love to go total the man versus the boss to prove who is the top dog right now. So she didn't really call her out. She called her out K five K Fe. But I mean right before that she goes cut fight me Sasha at one time Sasha banks the top dog. She was the boss, but Sasha's fallen from grace seems like she can't hack it. So she definitely got close to that line blurred that line out. Call a K fehb. But. Sasha banks is still been MIA. So that doesn't seem to be a match with gonna get for a while if ever. No, it certainly does not that does not sound promising. I don't know what the deal is was Sasha banks. Listen, I don't know who am I to talk. I haven't appeared on WW television in eight months. I am Sasha banks, and it's offensive all around. I mean with you Sasha banks they need to get it together. This is set at one time w has the greatest collection of talent across wrestling. I said talent not just restless to think about the nounce to the people backstage that they have what they do. It's all talent they do have the best collection on any promotion. But if you're not using the right? Then you might as well, not have anybody. Some some of the not using it all. Yeah. Very very interesting to see how this all plays out because I'll tell you what if Sasha banks becomes a free agent. All of a sudden this person who has ended up kind of way below her skis in WWE ends up being one of the biggest free agents in professional wrestling. Absolutely. But Sasha's problem though. And I said this on the mass may show last week. She really doesn't have any equals outside of WWE. 'cause what you when you think Sasha banks, you think of Charlotte flare, you think Becky Lynch, you think some of the best of women's wrestlers in the business and WW has basically all of them, you know, who's out there for Sasha banks to wrestle. That's not other w banner. Kim's retired. You got censured. But. Outside of that. There aren't that many women who? Who are equals in terms of skill and popularity and drawing power everybody who is is in the WWE. So she'd be one of the biggest free agents. But what do you do with her? When you when you get her. You know, what I mean like the she run roughshod over your whole, visit do you take the top to build somebody up to her level? Can you even do that? That would be very very interesting. But I know right now, it's a different time. There are people willing to spend money. I'm sure Sasha banks could get a raise leaving the WWF. Oh, absolutely. Lutely. We'll say anything else outside their yesterday. No. That was it. That's all I have outside. The ray. Inside the ring. Did you enjoy the Daniel Bryan Kofi Kingston random rematch from Monday? I did I did. Yeah. It was it was as good as their mania match. Still odd to me that they made events in raw to smackdown superstars for the top championship on smackdown. But ios while Khad Monday. What else what else would they do? That's the one way to solidify anything can happen to the World Federation is to have two people from that on that show made event that show give us a Phya match for the championship. What a strange time we live in. But yeah, they're they're always great together. There was no surprise there. Got to be honest. I did not watch Roman reigns. And drew McIntyre flipped over to basketball. How is then? I'm be as honest as you are. I did not watch rated you McIntyre, either don't even know on the batch..

"The thing. He wants to do or they're like we need to drive this home. How it's not call. It's it's it's it's it's it's someone else. It's boss time. We it's boss time Sasha banks. There are times when they've screamed it's boss time, and you could hear a needle drop in the area. Here's the here's the thing. We are not now because Boston hug is a better moment for them that has happened. Are all well aware that it is all about marketing, and it's all about Merck shells, and it's all about this. And of course, we all are in businesses. We all get, but it's it's to it like it. Now, I it's it's absurd at this point for two to the to the mildest observer, you want it to be I'll tell you one thing should they somehow, and I don't think it will happen. But should they somehow end up in a real competition with eight w that stuff's going to have to change? They're going to have to start letting it feel a little organic and rogue again, we're going to have to well, they're saying. It is hoping they do that wants to unpaid g it up a little bit. I it it can't be candy land. Like we have to. It's candy land right now. That's a very good way of putting it feels it just feels like a kid show almost all the time. You know? I it's almost like, you know, this is insane. I can't even say this. I say this you guys know him the number one proponent of the women's pollution. Revolution revolution. And the and the and the pay per view named after it women's Evelyn. Yes, I but the on the biggest proponent of the women's revolution. And. I have I've been a supporter of women's wrestlers before that you have. But I almost say. Hear me out in full. I miss the days of bra and panty matches. Not because those should be happening. And I want them to happen. And that's not where we should actually go. But in the sense that you are willing to have some sort of edged that like it's late and kids shouldn't be watching this. So I know that's not what should happen. I don't want that to happen. But there needs to be unequivocal into that. It doesn't have to be sex-related. But in terms of themes of a story line something with some sort of edge issue. Even like, you say edge and edging Lita had the. Yes. And like don't get me wrong. That was a lot right? It's you're not the ease will ease back into it. It's gonna take forever. The I mean, I mean, and by the way, I don't wanna get close to any of those things too far. No. But like can we get somewhere? You know? What if what if out of I'm sorry? No. Well, what if someone said something political that was surprising? A character took on a political role. Just get the wrestlers out of the ring and Atta the get them into like like like, Matt hardy like Matt hardy and Bray Wyatt. Get them out of the ring and into the wilderness and into the thing that or or or when they would have the APA have a bar fight. Right. Yeah. Romo. That's not in the ring. Let's see a promo that's outside in the world. It could be Austin tossing the belt off the bridge. And guess anything all of the everything is just to do three through through through through and the segment. I mean, it's like you. There's no sporadic ideas. It's I I couldn't have no sporadic isn't the right word. Now. I meant off the cuff. I mean. Yeah, there's nothing that seems like whoa. What just happened? Right. Yeah. You know, now never I hate to bring up number one on T O S. But that's one of the last times. You remember being like, whoa. What the F O C M punk. Yes. And by the way, that didn't even require going somewhere else. All all the did was sit down on the ramp. And you're like, wow. I haven't seen that before. I can't I I'm not gonna go.

"I had this. I have this is my hopeful pick as the best match of the weekend. And that's not to say, I don't want all these others. We talked about to contend. But this I hope reaches its potential, and if it does it's a chance for Oscar to really show what she can do and Becky really show what she can do. I think this does have a chance a good chance to be the best match of a really good weekend of top matches yen that Askin needs to have that moment. Asking to find people. How good she is. And why we were also excited about her being an annex t and coming to the main roster, and and all that. And I think Becky is in the exact right position to allow that opportunity to Oscar and then Ronda Rousey, Sasha banks. The last couple of weeks, especially the last segment on raw, it's too bad. So so few people side, there's a drop off of seven hundred thousand viewers from the first of the third hour they missed out at the end. Maybe there was a surge at the end because I only saw the hour the average but mad. They get me excited about Raanan Sasha Rana's Sasha's pushing buttons getting under Rhonda's skin rod is being held back. I sort of believe there's Rhonda's kind of like not losing track of whether it's a worker not like a little bit which makes which adds a little edge to things because she's so believably agitated I really liked the build up to this. And I'm really looking forward to how they I don't want to just go in and beat Sasha with an arm bar in two minutes because they're short on time stops, it was just a placeholder. I once I should have one way or the other come out of the stronger, even if she doesn't win and I don't expect her to. Yeah. I don't expect you're either. But I think the real value is that we're starting. It said not that dissimilar from Oscars that we're seeing elements of the original legit boss character, the he'll sash. His because that he'll Sasha banks in tea is really what made Sasha banks that version of Sasha banks the one that we saw at the first takeover Brooklyn show and have that amazing match with Bailey that for the first time since she's been on the main roster. That's the character that I feel like we've been seeing over the past couple of weeks. And I think that she's she's coming across. Fearlessly young. And you know, sometimes Sasha banks hasn't sometime Sasha banks has come across as I dunno. Does. She really know what she's doing. And I feel like now she's just found this confidence. And maybe it seeing Becky prosper. She's going like, oh, wait. There is possibility for us here. Like, we can if we can perform at that level, we can perform at that level. And and I think that that she is. And I hope that this is the introduction of of that version of Sasha banks, and this is Rhonda's best chance to have purpose match. Yeah. Casaus that good. Yeah. I agree. The bar MS and Shane what do you expect on this one? Well, like, I said, I mean, I'm not so averse to them is jumping in and winning the Royal rumble. You know, I kind of am thinking that with all the bad guys..

"And he was the first universal champion. And as soon as he got to the main roster. He was a main event guy and he went out with an injury. And when he is not Ben cemented as. A main event guy sense. He came back with the injury all those months ago. Now, he's got the opportunity to do just that if if if he is successful in pulling off a great match with Brock listener. Then he has the opportunity to be to be elevated. So I don't even think I don't even think the question is when will Finn Ballard win or lose. I think the question is what will thin valor? Look like coming off of this. Now, I read an interview I don't remember who did it. I wish I could give credit because you know, I've no problem giving people credit, but Finn valor. I think said that we will not see him as the demon at the Royal rumble that this is something Finn valley needs to do. And actually think that that's a smart thing. You know, I think that. The demon needs to come out when all other options are exhausted. And we've never seen like the demon would come out for the second or third fin valor vs Brock Leser match. But we need to see what fin Ballard without the demon is really capable of. And that's what this is going to be a test of at the Royal rumble. The other big match that I think the build up has been tremendous for is Sasha banks versus Ronda Rousey now. This the reason I'm so excited about the build up for this match is because this is the Sasha banks that I have been waiting for since she came over from annex t. Embrace embrace the internet. Rumors embrace the fact that she thinks that she's better than everybody else. Let her think she's better than everybody else. Let her go out and prove that she's better than everybody else, and let her not be shy about that. Let the legit boss be the legit, boss. Being the boss means that you're in charge. The boss doesn't look at everybody under him. His peers the boss considers him or herself the number one. And that's who saw shebang should be. Now. The question is what does that mean for her in Bailey, and what the tag team division in the in in the women's division looks like going forward? And I think it's actually makes him Bailey can still be tag team. You know, I think that we can be in this for the long haul. But I think Bailey needs to start getting more and more reluctant over the course of the next few months and Sasha banks needs to start being more and more unapologetic and egotistical over the course of the next few months if we've learned anything. During the Sasha banks, Ronda Rousey, build up. It's that Sasha banks works in this space that Sasha banks works in the egotistical unapologetic space. Sasha banks with no respect for Ronda Rousey is the Sasha banks that I wanna see fight Ronda Rousey, and quite frankly, fight anybody else on the WWE roster. It's good to see the boss back. That's the headline this week between Sasha banks and Ronda Rousey, and that's the state of wrestling this week on not Sam wrestling. Don't forget Phoenix Friday night show up seven thirty pm.

"What's it shouldn't be possible? I it's last horrifying to watch. It's like a box. And we would have people people kind of come in the car, whether it was Lance or the hurricanes over the years, and they would just sit looking at him dumbfounded like fast, but he liked it's a trough in front of him. And just. Houses stuff, it's kind of grotesque to watch. But other than that, we're we're very much on the same schedule. So it worked. But it's nice to know at least a against peeking from experience that you got your buddy there to be able to just even if it's just then too because there is a lot of venting with this drop. It is I feel like. You know, I mean Baylor like best friends, but Don extent, we didn't travel together I had a whole different car. So it's really when she got called up to the main roster, we came even closer. And I really think it's due to our matched on NFC takeover. Where was just like there's so much magic where I'm like. Wow. This girl's supposed to be in my life or for a purpose. And we really found out like how much were pretty much like twins. But opposite traveling on the road and learning so much about each other because we have just the same dream in the same goal, and it is amazing to be able to talk to her about our dreams and chasing them. And that's why I think for this year. I think women's wrestling is just going to be even more special because all of last year, I felt like our career kind of was like outta standpoint where we weren't really doing much or we were told one thing. And the next thing was something else. Or we thought we were gonna be facing each other than they stopped that. So we're like, okay, if they're gonna make this us tag team must become the best. Acting possibly be where we're training together. We're watching taped together we're getting matching gear and just to be told that they weren't going to have the titles and the next thing, you know, then address the title. So just like there's there's so many goals, and so many dreams that you know, we stay up late on the road just talking about how we're going to achieve to them all and it's cool to see talk about it. But now actually living it and seeing things happen. It's Warren credible. Second amid. Yeah. Tag team titles because we've been. We talked earlier about you being part of a lot of I send. They said the. The women's tax titles. That's huge and traveling talk, and it was very much like when Ottoman I grown up as well. We've known each other since the sixth grade to sit around in the in the backyard and talk about one day, and we're going to be w tag team champions. And we'd we have the whole thing mapped out. We had drawings of us in in different outfits. What our gear was gonna look like and all these sorts of things. And remember the moment that it happened. We won the first ones it was like holy shit. Like, we did it, you know, after meant more because I was with him a guy that I talked about with dreamed about it with. It's got to be the same type of feeling for you barely if if you were in fact have a chance to to wrestle for those titles, right? I'm smiling ear to ear just thinking about it. It's. Yeah. Crazy. Yeah. I don't I don't even I can't even think about way to get its seeing titles me and Bailey snuck and grill just look at them. I into touch them, Mike. This is this is real. I just can't believe like things are real it's its own edible. And I'm happy that they're actually cool looking because. Aren't that? Great looking and those ones I saw them like hall, man. I would love to win those. Ready? Dress up. Yeah. I tell you what would be able to take all your moves that much. I know that we can..

"Five hours, and you get no sleep, and you had to be very independent. I think that's the biggest thing that I've learned in some getting called up on the main roster. But just also doing TV live every single week that things can change legit five minutes before you go out or time. We'll get cut, and then you have to adapt that quickly were down in annex t everything's kinda like set in stone. You don't really lose time because taping they can. Cut in edit, whatever they want. So I think that's the biggest difference for me, which is like the independence of it. More being on the main roster. That's a huge challenge too. Because you become basically your own manager in a way you. You know, the way I would always do. It was get home from smackdown on Wednesday throw in my bag straight into the laundry than start mapping out rental cars and hotels for the next loop get the laundry back out put them right back in the bag. And then they were ready, and then I had like a day to recalibrate. I think that's one of the things that that can be shocking. You know is the fact that there's this grind. And then the actual fun part the part that you didn't need to pay us to do. You know, you still have to perform after that, you know, twenty three hours of grind. And I think that is still something that that is shocking to some people even when I talked to people outside of the industry that goes, so how's it work? And then you explain it and they're just dumbfounded. They don't get it. Like, wait whites. You have to drive yourself like jet. With your logo on the side. I think maybe rocky has that. How long it take you to like to adapt to to that new kind of world as far as, you know, getting rental cars and hotels and finding the into work out because you know, obviously keeping. That that's part of it as well. Right. Part of the job is getting to the gym and eating properly and all those sorts of things like kind of judgment period was that for I feel like I'm still learning. How to do it the right way? To the north more. And not know where I'm going. I can the my ID. They're like where are you going? Like, I don't know here. Just tell me where I'm going. I don't know and like the day of all get a rental car. But for me what I've learned the most is like bringing your own food on the road. So you don't have to stop anywhere. When I first got on the road. It was hard for me to get rental cars because I was too young thing at the age of twenty three when you can rent, and I got called up on the main roster think when I was twenty two or twenty three or something like that. So just everything I'm learning still like getting into the gym on time and making sure I get the ring on time. So I can still get in the ring and any healthy on the road. It's very hard, especially when there's the drives just can be so crazy sometimes where it's either two hours one night next night. It's five hours and do you wanna go half? Where do you wanna go full away? And you know, how it's been hotels can be sometimes it's it's not. Easy. The hardest part is is the traveling. What we get to do in. The ring is the fun part in what we look forward to. And that's only legit ten minutes. We get to do that in the traveling's everything else. There's a lot of time management of for. Sure. So it's got to be. I mean when Bailey gets called up is that a relief. Like, you finally have somebody that you can do all of this width and spitball all of these things with the s she makes my life so much easier. But the thing is I'm a morning person. And she's a night person. So our schedules don't mash up when we wake up in the morning. I'm like get off. Our? We working on. It would. That's where Jane I got lucky we had each other. But we always pretty much worked on the same schedule, and we also eight like feral wolves. So. Seriously. We would go to like I dunno Cracker Barrel, and Jay has somehow developed this system that he can eat a pancake in one bite..

"It's all I wanted to do a time training. I did a frog. Splash over the crash pad and landed straight on my face bus today, bleeding everywhere. And then I was terrified to do a frog splash until until I got to the main roster. I have to do it for wrestlemainia, but I was terrified ever since that to to do a frog splash. But I really didn't feel like I found my way of what I was doing until I got down to an extent I started working with dusty Rhodes in. Training with the likes of joy mercury. Norman smiley. I feel like those two really helped me with knowing who I wanted to be as a wrestler, but just teaching me just this little things that kind of click for me, even more. It's beginning. I mean. Sore Jay, but I just think back to like get I getting in and just being a black hole of charisma just like knowing with your hands. Just it's it's a weird concept you grow up watching it. And you think ok well, this is it, but it is a hard thing to get used to. And it's I think we've heard from pretty much all of the guests on the show that at some point dusty has put his fingerprints on them to to help them kind of discover what it is or regal or dreamer. Those seem to be the three names that always pop up. So it's nice to hear Norman and mercury get there due to. Yeah. It's it's pretty crazy mean when I first got started. I was just more just so thankful and happy that I got signed by the the I I was just I felt like I was too nervous to even try to stand out because I'll just trying to be myself of just as happy go lucky girl, just like.

"What what what's the first thing that causes you to want to do this with your life? Been crazy. I guess. We really think we are. You can't really be all the way there to do this. But in the semi do to be able to stay to do this crazy on different. Yeah. I started watching playing a fully when I was ten years old because there's really nothing on TV. And I was just click into the channels and the first wrestler. I saw was Eddie grow, and I instantly became hooked. And I knew from the very second any other dream that ever jumped up as a kid just kind of went out the window. And I knew I wanted to be part of WBZ. So from the age of ten that's all I ever thought about at the age of twelve I emailed every wrestling school in the whole world and all told me, no you had to be sixteen or eighteen. So then there was one day. I watched Rb d a DVD, and he was doing a may. So I I did a may to try to get me ready for wrestling age of thirteen and the age of eighteen I found a wrestling school and signed up started to train to Russell venue about time. You've gone to the wrestlemainia Orlando. I was doing a may and the rest of Orlando was sixteen years old. And I started. Join a wrestling school at the age of eighteen. So when you went to the to the show on Orlando is it like, okay, this this is definite. I'm doing this already knew by the age time. This is what I wanted to do. I think displaying backstage I was more of really just opened my eyes of how big wrestling is. And just how much more I wanted to be a part of it. When a snoop was doing rehearsals that day doing his entrance. All I can think about is like when I grow up, and I get to walk down the stage by myself that was all I could imagine just like freaking out inside seeing all my favorite wrestler, just being like, can you be cool become because maybe one day you're going to be here. I I just never been just so overwhelming. I was there. Just like, oh my gosh. It was legit. A dream. Come true. How many sixteen year olds can say they're back stage at wrestlemainia. At that sixteen if I had been back there. I would've went my pants. I mean. I I don't know Sears. I don't even know high react like what do you do it sixteen like, I wouldn't have been quipped to to handle that. I know, you know, women mature much more quickly than men, but still like, I mean talk about mind-blowing and. So where did you start where did you train and you start at eighteen, but who was it with? So I started training at chaotic wrestling. It's called the New England wrestling academy right now is in north Andover. North Andover in Massachusetts. And my changes were brand fury frame aloneness in at the time hands Johnny who is now. One of his name is warp here. An annex t he's inkers just kinda crazy. So those were through that taught me, but I learned a lot from Brian fury. He really lay down the foundation of what it was. And what it took to be professional wrestler. Will. Yeah. Because I think for anyone when they first start. I know you know, when I first started training. It was Shawn Michaels. And Bret Hart were my guys. So actually, I was like, okay. You know, how do I be like them? And then you start to realize, oh, I got to do my own thing you can implement yourself into what some of the things you're doing. Did you find that with that? Like, I did you just wanna do frogs Bosh all day? Of course..

"And also, you know, seeing the way that you care self and the pride that you take him what you doing here. What you just said. I mean, you're just you're not happy with being I've always said kind of getting to WWE in staying there and going places are two different things. You're not happy being a passenger. You wanna be driving the? Car. You know what I mean? And I mean, that's. I think that all the greats have that mentality or that that inter thing where they're just complacency is is never there. It's never enough. And I really get a sense of that for us as something that you've kind of cared with you your entire career. Like from the moment you started training last lately. I never wanted to be second best. I feel like if you with anything to do in life. You should strive to be number one. You should strive to be the best like, I don't get help people can be here and just sit around and wait for their turn. You know, what I mean like our Bill K with like having a match one week in the next week off for two and then come issues, I just I don't know how you would do that. When the Straub is so hard as is. And you know, I feel like you just have to work your ass off to get where you wanna be in after knock down those doors. If you're not happy to let them know. You know, don't just tell me that you're happy. You have to show me. I have to out to show them every single week that I'm here to be the best. When I go out there every Monday night within my matches. I wanna make sure that I'm stealing the show or adding the best match of the night. So that's what drives me to be a better because I just can't be complacent. That attitude you need that. But sometimes that can rub people the wrong way. You know, we. But yeah. But it's it's true. You got to rub people the wrong way, sometimes because of a belief in yourself, and we've I know I think with Jericho we we've talked about it. It's kind of the asshole rule at some point. You have to be an asshole in order to. And it doesn't mean be mean, it doesn't mean be a bully. It truly means that you don't wanna be second best. You wanna be pulling the card, and you wanna be the one that is spearheading this thing. There's nothing wrong with that. But we you you talked about, you know, right from the get go. From training that you you felt this kind of drive and everything, but let's go back like even further to to win. It is that you decided this is what you wanna do. I think I already know the answer to this one. But who it was that influenced you because if I remember correctly, I think I met you at wrestlemainia twenty four e n were there, and I was getting ready for my match with taker. And all I remember is smelling barbecue and. I'm like what what's going on? And then I read a corner, and there's new p- and like a full on barbecue happening. You were there. I was that. It's so crazy my gosh. So snip was there for rest may twenty four. And when I found out that he was gonna be a part of it. I called him every single day saying, can you please bring me with you. I'm the biggest wrestling fan. So he brought me with him and my birth data. He's a he's a cook. So stupid him with him. And there was legit. Just as barbecue outside of his tour bus and every wrestler came into the bus saying Hello snoop, and you know, eating some ribs. With ribs. And I was so I hadn't eaten. This close to the match. And I'm thinking my first wrestlemainia main event, I'm like bright. This is big. This is big and all I can smell his ribs. And I was. Hungry. Gry insane. So anyway, so you love wrestling by this point, you go to wrestlemainia does that further cemented for you. And like I said who's the influences?.

"So now that I'm ready for my role in the resonant with my wife food. I I guess is probably time to to talk to Sasha. Now get to get to the the legit Bossio. Real. I three stubbed toes. I had to deal with real quickly. We got the boss, and so let's just straight to the chase. Pretty crazy right now. Like, you're finally. Getting to main event at a Royal rumble against Rousey. So does it feel like things have changed because we're talking about Ballard getting shot? Resona? You're getting to work with Rousey like it feels like something might be happening. It's kinda crazy. It was really unexpected to when I found out I was going to be facing her. I was just really out of the blue. I found out the day before Rana just like, wait. Of course, it's how you always works. You never know what you're going to be doing. They tell you one thing next thing, you know, something's different. But it's honestly really cool because last year having the first ever women's Romo match. I got to open that match and be part of that match for fifty four minutes. So now going into this year's rumble actually part of the title pitcher. It's kind of crazy full circle. Life is going to do both. You're gonna have the match with with Rhonda NBN, the rumble. That is correct. No, I won't be in the rumble because I'll be wondering title. I don't need to be true. Four what you do. Title and win the rumble. And then nobody. You don't you can pick your neck shoulder. With fair to the other girls. It's never fair. I'm just worried that you're gonna kick us off our own podcast. Like, you did the edge and Christian show. I feel bad about that going back gifts of meat dressing up as Donald Trump, just like what the hell was I dealing? Especially now. God we knew it's all right. It's kind of. And at least we're making fun of him. But so you talk about like because we've talked about I on this show and h- you've been involved in a lot of I in terms of of women wrestling, whether it's, you know, Helen, sell all of these different things at what point. I guess what? I'm trying to say is what's keeping you hungry. What keeps them Hungary's is always striving for more? I feel like it's cool having the first time ever. But it's never enough for me. A for me, I want consistency. I want consistency with the, you know, long story lines consistency of having longer matches on raw sea of, you know, striving to always continue to the best in never settling for less. It's always amazing being part of first time ever. But I wanna be at a time where it's considered something normal. And I feel like we're really getting there right now with you know, you see on Monday night, Ron smacked online that the women are getting tomato vent, you know, the TV's now, and it's just like nothing, that's not specially more. But it's it's really cool that it's becoming something that is normal and even seeing are live events and seeing that the women are closing out live events, which I never thought it'd be possible. It's so insane. And then just announcing the tactic women's titles like. There's always going to be something more to strive for. And that's what keeps me going. I want to be the best, and I wanna do this as long as I can't wellbeing absolutely happy. Because I love wrestling with all my heart that I know and love, so that's what drives me. I just I feel like I just have to continue to show the world Y woman. Wrestling can do within this company, and I know that we can take over and just keep on striving for more. And hopefully soon we can also man of wrestlemainia one day, but just to see how far we've come since a while ago to now it's been incredible. We've talked about the very real possibility of women's made event this year wrestlemainia, and I think it would be perfectly fitting and sense from you from from talking with you in the past..

"That you you've never believed in me. Like, I don't know how true that is. But I mean, if that is the perception than sometimes, it's reality from the fans perspective. Right. So I think just to put that out there, and then, you know, in Vince basis, and you're the smallest guy here. You know? I don't know if you can if you have what it takes to be in here with these guys a little monster Brock listener and for him to then having to go through gender to get into the to that match. And then when it all I thought it was I thought I thought it was really well done without it was good night for him. And and well deserved. And like I said he has that connection. Very few have with the fans. That brings me to. To the rumors circulating that the revival have asked for their release from a really WWE. Yeah. I didn't hear that. Yeah. Why breaking I just saw to my phone before we got on here. Here's the thing. I we've obviously, you know, touted those guys we I don't me personally, I think they're phenomenal. I think given the chance quite possibly, you know, them who sows neck and neck as to who the top team. At least in my you know, perspective is in the industry. And man, if it's true, I get it in a way, you know. It's it's it's got to be frustrating. You know to like we talked about a six minute match. What kind of story, can you? Tell us X minute match. It's hard. And then you start ringing, which is party rules, and all of these things, I think the danger sometimes is is people think all right in the show now WWE here, we go, and it can be disillusioning. Sometimes right. Because you know, I remember we had to go out and have a handicap magic and Steve Blackman in two minutes. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, but I mean. It you work through it and hope that things change around through hard work. But maybe taking the bull by the horns and. Just asking for your release. Whether it's true or not is is shows that you're willing to really do something in order to Detroit. 'cause I think for them. It's it's just wanting a shot to show what they can do after proving. They can do it in annexed t right? Yeah. I mean, and it's one of those things to where it's a fine line. Right. Because you work so hard to get to that point. And you know, it is a hard thing to walk away from you know, it really is. And like you said, I've always been of the the state of mind that you can't talent won't stay down forever. If you have talent eventually you'll kick that door open to run. So, you know, but every person is is has their own agenda has their own thoughts and their own feelings. And if you don't. You can't if that's how they feel then you can't stop them. But. It will end to be honest. I don't know how much vents will ever focus on him wrestling because I don't think he sees minute. There can be we've proven there can be and you know, the rock nor expresses proven. There can be in the Hardee's and the Dudley's and the road warriors. And there's a lot of instances that has proven that tag team wrestling, and I know Steve Austin, we'd be the first one to to throw his hat in this ring tagging wrestling can be the best match on the show bar. None. And for sure we've talked about that before as well. I know I know and it especially when it's done right by two guys like that. And they have the right opponents. I it can be a magical magical thing within this this industry. You can tell the different type of story than you can with two people. And I just don't know Vince is ever looked at it that way, I think anytime that tagged him wrestling has made any kind of headway on the show. It's. It's happened almost by accident or without anybody realizing that attack. Nick. Yeah. I mean when we when we were in our heyday as far as Christian goes with the delays in Hardy's. It was lightning a bottle with those through three teams. Just the chemistry couldn't be denied there..

"I liked that it was different than what we'd seen them do before you could tell that. They're like there was no feeling out process. They started hot. And it was the parts of it were ugly in a good way. Where it was you got the real like they're really in a fight in a struggle type thing, and I appreciated that about that match. I do wanna go back to mustache mountain for a second the British BULLDOGS tribute. Yeah. Those greater. That was. In the flying head. But after the power, slam all good stuff. Yeah. Especially when you're opening the show to come out and do that it was that was a perfect little bow tie think on the on the the whole thing. And how about our good buzz, buddy, buddy? Gabbard? I just signed jazzy in buddy. So she's nowhere fuzzy buzzy jazzy Gabbard. In the crowd. I don't know if instructions the yeah. I don't know if she's on the roster. I certainly hope so especially with you know, kind of her road and we've talked about it. People can go back, and listen, you know, the hose go back and listen to that sodas, a really good episode with jazzy get where she kind of talked her entire history and everything that she's in countered, even after the may young classic where she really, you know, put a stamp on the wrestling map and then had neck issue. So here's hoping shut the jazzy and open. She's good to go. And that means something. I don't know. I dunno Berga. Yeah. And I thought it was also a good good little surprised that been ballor KOMO match. Yeah. We and and and we could talk about Mr. Ballard, which is a nice little segway. Even though he didn't know you didn't mean it that way because you have no preparation whatsoever. But this week on Roth and Ballard became the challenger for one listener at the Rome. How about that? I like it. Yeah. I like to because. I really like I really like him. I do as a person outside of the ring. Just really really good guy got his head on straight. He's got a good attitude. Good outlook on life. And so it's nice to see a guy who. The audience wants him in that position. He he's one of those guys that when he comes out that entire audience does his thing and they're invested in. It's it's like a Jeff hardy and that there's just there's an intangible there. So it's nice to see him get this showcase, and I just hold an Brock has his work and boots on, you know, I think that you know, what I like was was the promo segment, and you know, like said a little while ago that there were there were going to listen more to the fans and things we're going to change and people are getting opportunities, and we often become the first ever universal champion. And then of course injury. He had to step aside and never had chance to have any sort of run with it and kind of working his way back to this point ever since. And I think I think whenever you can put nuggets of truth into promos. Like, he did where you know, what he was saying there's no secret to Mr...

"Why would you leave him on the floor that just didn't make much sense to me? And that's said that doesn't take away from the match me. But it to me it adds something like if you rolling in desperately trying to cover any kicks out and try to cover again, he kicks out if there's that real intent to try to win this title. And then you know, obviously his hands are big weapon. At one point Pete done did a double stomp on his on his hands, and they went up and they went right into something where he hit the ropes and went for the punch. I can't remember recall if he hit it or not I think they went into something else then had Alaria, but. To me. It's like the double time you stop them. At least register those hands at something just happened to shake it off or do something. And then try to go into using them. You know, it's just a little little little things like that that that's all comes of experiences stuff at that too. But I mean, we said the stuff that I mean, there was a far more things that that I that I really liked about this match like even when they were they were they were throwing punches back and forth and staggering other. And then you know, he'll got the bigger Pete got the bigger guy. Really? And he was stumbling all over like into the second ropes and coming back up like all that stuff was really really great. And then at one point peaches punched himself out, and they're both kind of laying on top of each other on the ropes. I that's why I said like a rocky movie felt like yeah. Cre- credence. Delong kinda thrown haymakers kind of thing and the results really cool little subtle moment to where coffee stood up, and they got a nice nice visual Dunn's reaction. It was really subtly done reaction. But he he did it. Well. Yeah. I mean, but to your point. I thought there facials it's a lot of times you can tell a story better with body language with facials than you can with any move. I thought throughout both those guys did that really well of their would, you know, really really telling the story with with their emotions what I think to your point about that the hands and the fingers because they're so instrumental on every wrestling move. I think that's why people forget to sell them. Right. But it's almost a gift to me. If if he's working the fingers, I'm selling those fingers on every time, I try and grip. Whether it's a headlong every branch I throw every closed on I throw from that point on I'm going to register those fingers. One point little bit later as a match he did there was a double down reaching for the top rope to pull himself up, and he was like nothing not able to grip the top rope. So I thought that was really well done. It was was a little bit. After the double hand stop where they went into a couple of things so them did do it too. Like, I said there is former things over all those things will take away from the match me little things that will help deal. What you're saying workers will veterans, and we we just like to get. Yeah. Yeah. We're not gonna try minutes. And we're we're talking. Yeah. I'm not taking away from anything. They did. I thought that was honestly my favorite match on the show. And it's also because I'm such a big fan of done. But. I thought it was really the pacing woods was really well done. And it was the cool thing was it was the main event they had a ton of time, and it was different than any other match on the show. Yeah. It was it was it was completely different. And all the matches were that was cool. What was cool about it? Mastiff against Eddie. Dennis no Deke match, those two guys just look completely different than everybody. So that makes it different right out of the gate to. And you know, there's a few things, Drake and Gibson. You know, I think in terms of tank team work, it's like a couple little things again like who could do this here do that they're tweak that they're, but they're onto something, you know? Tony storm re-really. I was actually surprised that storm won the title was too. But I, you know, kind of echoing what we just talked about with the Pedone Joe coffee match..

"But here's here's what stuck in my mind. And I'm going to sound like the result old frumpy veteran. Yeah. I they go to ringside and see them fighting at ringside, and I see these inaugural tag team championships that these guys are doing these amazing things for and they're sitting on the ground and the feet of the ring announcer. Yeah. And I thought they don't seem out important, then if they're just sitting on the ground, I it's a small thing. But if if these championships I mean, something then they should be on like some kind of velvet covered podium or something. And it's the first time somebody's winning these things, and you just see them sitting at you know. Somebody's feet, you know, by their by their sketchers, you know, and how no doesn't mean unless that was a shot. They weren't supposed to get. But yeah, I mean, if you wanna you're absolutely right. Like, if you wanna paint that picture of of this. These titles the first time ever both. These teams are putting it on the line for. Yeah. Them presented there in the in the background things bird. But those little things they add up. Those little things means do. All right. Yeah. I agree with you thought it was a fun match. You know, the thing I liked about this card was that it all matches had time. Yeah. You know? They didn't didn't just throw a bunch of matches on just to see how many they get in. There is a there is enough matches that the that each match had enough time to to tell whatever story was they were trying to tell what and also too. I don't know if the roster is is big enough at this point to rent to have you know, a bunch of matches. So it's a great time to be on it to to get your time time into show what you can do because you know, as as a person in this industry, you want that time on a pay per view to be what it is that you can do. Yeah. Time is always the enemy, right? You're always fighting for more fighting for more time. And you know, it's like I've always said before I was much better at twenty twenty five thirty minutes than I was at six or seven minutes. Like, I really didn't know what to do with six or seven minutes. It's hard. It's hard short story. It's a haiku. It's you're just starting to get your groove. You're just starting to feel the crowd of five or six minutes. And you know, when you're asked to do a match in that time, you know, you'll have people say, oh, how there I don't know. It's just. Is tough with that amount of time. So your point it was good. They all they all had some time to tell their stories, and I think that was most evident in the the the main event with Joe coffee and with with Pete done. Yeah. It wasn't pretty. But I like that wasn't pretty Joe coffee is not going to be your fluid. Dean milenko. Guy. And that's okay. It was different. Yeah. Different bras. Ugly and nam if it looks to rehearse I mean, his his stuff does not look rehearsed. You know what I mean? And I mean that Nagoya way I thought it was a fun. I was almost like a movie almost like a rocky movie where they had this moments where they'd come back and just face off and biz fun. Good little movie told all call it. Yeah. I mean, I like I like it a lot too. I mean, we've talked about before being, you know, stickler for for details and stuff there's a couple of things from. Here's what really help like when they were both on the floor and Pedone was down and Joe coffee rolled the rain Wade from to come back in like that if you're desperate if you're desperate contender trying to win this coveted title guys had over six hundred days, and you have them hurt..

"It comes across as cocky, and it comes across as not only does she think she's the best. But she clearly thinks she's better than you. And not in a way of like. Yep. I just work really hard. And I'm at my best. It's no I'm a ten in Europe seven, I'm better than you. This doesn't just mean. I'm good. It means your bad. You know? That's the way Sasha comes across. And I think that's the way she should come across. I think that's the way she comes across naturally when she does that. It's believable. It's interesting. And I think going forward that we should have Sasha banks and Bailey, if we've left them together this long, they should be going towards those women's taking championships. But I think what we should end up with is this relationship where Sasha is clearly in charge and is treating Bailey like crap I think Sasha needs to take this all the way this needs to go well beyond the Rhonda match because you know, Sasha banks wins loses wins loses wins loses. And all of a sudden when she gets rude when she gets rude to Ronda Rousey, she gets really interesting. And I loved that. That's what I'm looking for all of a sudden I cared deeply about the Sasha banks, Ronda Rousey match, the idea that Rhonda's like, yeah. I think this'll be good. And and would just be good sports about it. And blah, blah, blah, and Sasha turns around and goes, no, I'm not here to be a good sport. I'm here to tap. You out you're gonna lose. It's great. It's awesome. I think that attitude needs to continue the whole time the whole time this is going on. I think that that that Sasha. And when I say this is going on. I mean going forward I think that that that Sasha needs to be this person Sasha needs to have Bailey needs to be the reluctant partner to Sasha banks. Bailing, you sit there and go like, I don't know Sasha. This doesn't seem right. Shut up Bailey. Let's go. And put the tag titles on them and have Sasha hold up both tag titles. You know and have Bailey. No, no, it's okay. It's okay. Sasha's? Right. This is what Sasha likes this is. You know, she's really she's brought us here in baba. Eventually you can finally have that build up and blow off between Bailey and Sasha. But I think if we've learned anything from what Sasha has done on raw this week. And in all the lead up with the Ronda Rousey stuff, it's that Sasha belongs being a bad guy. So I should best work was still probably as that at the very end of her next career when she Delage it boss Sasha's ratchet. No, she's not I've talked about it all the time. You know, I used to come on here every week and talk about Sasha banks to my favorite wrestler, because I believed the character Sasha banks can pull off that character better than most people can pull off most characters. And I think now is the time. Time to dip back into that world. You know? I I I'm I'm I'm very high on it. And I think that not only does it make the Rondo match interesting, but it will make the tag team title situation the women's tag team title situation. Very interesting. And it'll it'll create that tension between her and Bailey. I I just think it'll be great moving onto story. Number two. I don't even know where this is coming from. I've been trying to look like why this was written this way. But there was an article in Forbes, and I read the snippet of it, and it's.
