AEW Dynamite 6/18/2021 Review

Another day, another review. The big thing about this Dynamite episode is that it’s the last crowdless taped show. And next Saturday will show a live airing at Daily’s Place, which is weird considering that their ratings have steadily dropped since moving to Friday. Not sure if the Saturday move will help much but I guess they’ll take what they can get.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Patch 2.7.1 Haedrig Gift Set Thoughts

So this might seem like a little bit of clickbait considering that Blizzard has yet to release Season 24’s Haedrig Gift sets. However, based on a chart of past seasons, I believe we can almost accurately predict which sets will be part of Haedrig’s Gift. So from that, I want to review which classes look like good starters based on that chart as well as what we know about patch 2.7.1.

Diablo 3: Inna’s Mantra Build for Patch 2.7.1 (PTR)

With the PTR coming out on Friday for patch 2.7.1, I decided to do some theory crafting for the monk as it’s seeing a major change to the Inna’s set and a few supporting items and skills. Right now, the build is looking like a minion build focused on the Fire Ally rune from Mystic Ally based on the massive boost of damage to the bracers.

AEW Dynamite 6/12/2021 Review

Another Friday night, another AEW Dynamite review. Thought this show was stronger than last week’s but I did feel it still needs a lot of work.

AEW Dynamite 6/4/2021 Review

Again, I’m not going to do a play-by-play of every match. I only saw a sampling of the program so I can’t provide a specific context. Also, I think that would just take too much time and mental energy to make it worth my while. So I’m going to focus on key points for each segment.

More WWE Releases Today

Yesterday, there was a rumor that hit the net about more WWE releases and today it actually happened. When I checked the names out, I wasn’t entirely surprised but decided that with my recent writings on wrestling again (the Dark Sides, AEW review, WWE’s future), I felt another blog would be great to put my thoughts in order for the people who got the axe.

AEW Double Or Nothing PPV 2021 Review

I caught the AEW Double or Nothing 2021 PPV and had been mulling it over for a few days and decided to finally write up a review. My review isn’t going to be a play-by-play type of review just an overall summary of each match and a conclusion of the PPV.

Dark Side of the Ring: Nick Gage Review

After hearing Jim Cornette rant about garbage wrestling, I wasn’t too keen on this episode. Matter of fact, I never heard of Nick Gage up until this episode, which had it more a novelty than something I was passionately interested in (compared to say the Benoit, Hart or Pillman ones). That said, garbage/hardcore style wrestling never really had been my thing and this one looked to be quite violent and graphic.

Dark Side of the Ring: Brian Pillman Review/Thoughts

It’s been a week since the 2nd part of the Brian Pillman Dark Side of the Ring premiered and while I’ve already gone through the latest round (with Nick Gage), I wanted to finally put my thoughts about the whole Brian Pillman show on a blog post.

The Future Of The WWE In A Post-Pandemic Digital World

For a while now, I have concluded that the WWE has not been a pro-wrestling company for some time. Instead, I describe them as a marketing company, specializing in a specific vertical. The problem with the WWE’s vertical has been shrinking for some time and the COVID-19 pandemic has inflicted some hefty punishment that puts a light on some of the key weaknesses of the WWE that should be examined as the company looks towards their future.
