I can imagine that wrestling can be quite a horrendous job if you're not enjoying it, so I can't see many people seeing just sticking it out as an option.

I noticed this week's 83 weeks was a best of.

Since coming back all the gossip seems to be to slate him and that he's done nothing. Going by his podcast and moving to Connecticut he did seem to be in it for the long haul though.

He was a scapegoat, a name investors would recognise when Vince delivered them a boatload of bad news.

I find Mike Bennett an absolute attention seeking pain in the arse. He's the worst example of someone who cleans himself up (good for him btw) but then just becomes a preachy, whiny, look at me douchebag. Constant attention craving is boring. He's also much more mediocre in the ring than he thinks he is.

Bischoff to aew?

 

hope not!

Can't see it.  The accusation labelled by many from his time in WCW and this run in WWE is that he is a bit lazy at times.  

I enjoy his podcasts a little bit but probably my least favourite of all the Conrad podcasts.  Bischoff takes himself a bit too seriously.

I don't see AEW going for Bischoff either. At least not in any major creative role.

Mike Bennett... a solid hand and no more than that. He wasn't any more than that in ROH either, and will be no more than that the next place he goes either. I reckon if you stick him with a good partner, he'd make a real good addition to the NJPW tag division.

He's second to Prichard for me. JR is alright, but there's something off putting with the voice of my childhood suddenly becoming very outspoken when he's toed the company line for pretty much the majority of my lifetime.

None of the topics that have been covered by Arn are of any interest as of yet and by and large, I associate him to a larger degree with 80s wrestling which I'm not as interested in.

Finally, TS seems to have a focus on watch a longs.

Only follow WWE now through WON/F4W now, drove me off years ago and kinda killed the love I had for wrestling since I was a kid. Recently getting back into it, started off with watching bits of Impact, and now am watching AEW and NWA Powerrr (which is great and free on YouTube, a real throwback to classic wrestling).

The “blockbuster” trade announced on WWE Backstage today was Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross moving to SmackDown.

Okay. So... the blockbuster trade was... *checks notes* ...RAW chucking away two draft picks, that they STUPIDLY picked as two picks instead of one as a tag team?

Man, between that, the panel, the leaked draft and the war rooms, this whole thing went fucking great.

How long until Fox realise they've made a terrible error?

I think JR is getting too old, he repeats a lot of stuff on his podcast and goes off on tangents. I actually think Conrad doesn’t enjoy doing the JR podcast and I don’t think it will last as long.

It’ll be on FS1 before Valentine’s Day IMO.

 

I wouldn't be surprised. Once they start churning out weekly dreck and viewers tumble Fox will surely take notice.
