I agree with Naito, Draught is way better than VB.
He's clearly trying to learn the ancient martial teachings of Drunkicho so he can get his Intercontinental title back.
We export that horse piss and drink the good stuff ourselves.
Kevin Owens is the hero we need.
I just got home from TakeOver. I was sitting second row behind the announcers. There was a gentleman in front of us who was one of those fans.
He was chanting “Patrick” at Velveteen Dream, referring to the Young Bucks as the “Young Deer,” etc... I’m all for enjoying yourself, but he was obnoxious and irritating.
Before the women’s title match, Kevin Owens and Mark Henry were brought out to the front row. As KO is watching Ciampa and Gargano in a sleeper hold spot, the annoying dude yells across the row to Kevin, “YOU’RE THE CHINLOCK MASTER, KEVIN! NOT HIM!”
Kevin Owens continues to watch the match and just yells, “Good because that’s a sleeper hold, idiot.” Shut him down for the remainder of the show.
God bless you, Kevin Owens.
Normally when they show celebrities or WWE stars on camera they usually leave and head to the back after the vignettes. However, Kevin and Mark Henry stayed for the entire women’s match and afterwards Kevin watched the entire main event. The man truly loves wrestling.
Seeing them together made me realize we need a Mark Henry/KO buddy cop movie. Let's go, WWE Studios.
KO's the chickenshit non-cop/agent or desk jockey tagging along. Mark gets injured somehow, maybe a gunshot, maybe a grueling fight. KO's suggesting they leave and come back later or just forget about it but Mark says "I GOT A LOT LEFT IN THE TANK" and pushes on.
He was the one that really wanted to use his SMALL time off from the main roster to go to Orlando to be on NXT to further the Johny Gargano/Tommaso Ciampa. Never happened though for some reason.
He left out the part where after that he blasted her with a crutch and then showed her what a real knee injury was.
After listening to his Art of Wrestling interview years ago about his heavy drug use and luckily failing a suicide attempt, I'm so happy at the success he's having now and how much he cares for others when their down.
The total opposite of what his current character is.
Next thing you're gonna tell me is that he and Johnny don't actually hate each other.
Triple H just revealed Tommaso Ciampa is actually a nice guy who was one of the first people icing Tegan Nox's knee after she first got injured at the Mae Young Classic. 🤫🤫
I hate these wrestling fans who are insane with their fandom, and treat their favorite promotion like it's their hometown sports team.
You can enjoy Kenny Omega elsewhere, and NXT.
You can even do it without spinning absurd fantasy booking scenarios in your head.
True class. It doesn't matter where you're doing it, as long as you're doing it.
I feel like he's talking to a lot of you here.
Fucking lol. Should have been Mickie.
I'm selling popcorn for the post-match thread when bliss inevitably wins, who wants some?
Well she kinda has too, what is accomplished if Trish wins ?

Ciampa came back to reunite with the end-of-show graphic ❤
Let us give our customary condolences to the main roster tomorrow.
It's an amazing story. Johnny's quest for killing this man is ultimately his downfall to championship gold.
"It had to end like this"
What a fucking ending, Johnny shows no mercy, goes too far, loses anyway, and now hurt himself in the same way Ciampa did. He's no better than the person he despises most in this world.
Post NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV Match Discussion: NXT World Championship Last Man Standing Match - Johnny Gargano Vs. Tommaso Ciampa
Tommaso Ciampa wins after rolling off the stage to his feet after Gargano hits a knee and flies off the stage; injuring himself in the process.
People here always complaint about how WWE doesn't have good storytelling
But when Johnny Gargano loses all of his matches because his pride and wrath always gets in the way it's a 'shitty ending'
I feel like the people saying the finish sucked because Johnny was being stupid are the same people complaining about Star-Lord punching Thanos in Infinity War. The whole point was that Johnny was so consumed with rage and hell-bent on taking out Ciampa that he wasn't thinking straight.
Overheard in the NXT locker room after Gargano-Ciampa
“He got me,” Gargano said of Ciampa's trickery over him. "That f***ing Ciampa boomed me."
Gargano added, “He’s so good,” repeating it four times.
Gargano then said he wanted to add Ciampa to the list of wrestlers he kicks the shit out of this fall.
To all of you that don’t get basic storytelling
Johnny was above Ciampa because he was sympathetic and caring and the ultimate babyface.
MATCH ONE: Johnny wins by showing mercy to Ciampa and outsmarting him
MATCH TWO AND THREE: Johnny continues to lose to Ciampa and become worse and more bitter as he loses his way and falls into Ciampas trap and sinks to his level. Losing Johnny all of his matches.
NEXT: Johnny regains his way and finally becomes Johnny Wrestling again and defeats Ciampa the right way
DONT ASK FOR STORY ARCS IF YOU DONT HAVE THE PATIENCE TO SEE ONE THROUGH
Post NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV Match Discussion: NXT Women's Championship Match - Kairi Sane Vs. Shayna Baszler (c)
Kairi Sane wins via rolling through the Kirifuda Clutch
Shout out to Percy for his "no, no no!" when Shayna got the choke. He's not the best commentator yet but he's got great passion.
That finish was phenomenal. People need to stop sleeping on shayna
Sane's leg getting twisted up looked fucking brutal. It's like Pete Dunn's finger spot but with the entire god damn limb.
Sane and Baszler have great chemistry. Betting Ronda wins tomorrow and Shayna moves up to cause some kind of trouble on Raw after SummerSlam
Post NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV Match Discussion: NXT North American Championship Match - Ricochet Vs. Adam Cole (c)
Ricochet wins with the 630
Best super kick ever
I think we can safely say that the old Best Superkick Ever has been replaced by Adam Cole kicking Ricochet straight in the fucking neck during a moonsault.
The height on that backflip Ricochet got superkicked on proves that someone in the arena can indeed get higher than Matt Riddle
This is it chief
