Dustin’s car problems

Is Jake Hager the “Cruncher” now? I loved that whole contract signing on Dynamite. Reminded me of an event almost 28 years ago to the day. When Larry Zbyszko attacked Dustin and Barry Windham, breaking Windham’s hand in the car door! Best episode thus far, as they are incorporating more angles and short promos for ... Read more

Cheap Heat Acts

This is mostly regarding your dislike of Peter Avalon. The man is getting booed. If it gets boos and leads to a good match, what's wrong with a Buh-Buh-Bubba Ray or Thugonomics John Cena type of promo to get the crowd to care? Nothing, but the crowd DOESN'T care.  And the whole gimmick is going ... Read more

FS1 replays of Smackdown

I've noticed that FS1 is replaying Smackdown several times during the week.  Do you think that it is eventually going to stop, as it will basically encourage viewers not to watch the show live?   I think the show they're putting on is doing a good enough job of that.
