Scott- with Reigns now effectively a loser, what do they do with him now? He’ll probably beat Joe and is scheduled with Mahal in June but Vince can’t keep thinking of him as the top guy or can he? And who takes the belt off Brock now? I’d think happy fun hands Braun but that ... Read more

Infinity War – Wrestling parallels

Hey Scott, Like you, I thought the movie was incredible. But as I’m reading a bunch of the comments on your post as well as the earlier ‘spoiler’ post I couldn’t help but notice the similarity in gripes between the movie and wrestling. That is to say, IW leaves us with a seemingly obvious direction ... Read more
