It’s been another week of wrestling, which means another episode of Bollywood Wrestling. This week we’ve got a lot of matches from around the world, and a few that are just winners.
If you’ve read my blog before, you know that I’m a huge wrestling fan. I’ve done nearly everything that’s been written about the sport, from reading about the pioneers who started the industry to watching it as a spectator, to writing about it on the computer and watching it on the television. This week I decided to pull out the old wrestling magazines and watch the matches again, with the aim of writing a blog post about the first 21 years of the business. I did it on a schedule and with no particular event in mind, but the result was a trip down memory lane and the re-watch of some of my favorite matches from my childhood.
Another Wrestling Week #7 (June 21, 2023)
Thanks for coming! In addition to bringing you This Is Not Wrestling every Thursday and raving about PPVs on YouTube, I’ll also be giving my thoughts on other wrestling events that catch my attention on Monday. I’m Danny Schade, I write for Geeks + Gamers, and it’s another week of struggle!
<Previous issue Another wrestling week!
WWE’sHell in a Cell aired last night. Overall it was interesting, despite the usual WWE nonsense with more ads than matches and the visual disruption that is the WWE Thunderdome. If you want additional commentary on the PPV, read my own PUTTING IT BLUNTLY : WWE Hell in a Cell 2023 video (review) to see what I had to say about each match.
WWE gave it on live television last Friday night. …. Hell in a Cell, that is. One of the matches for the JPA had been postponed two days earlier when Roman Raines defeated Rey Mysterio in Hell in a Cell. I’ve said in the past that I’m all for not overloading the concept of a game over three hours, but ruining the state/PPV atmosphere just so Michael Cole can scream as much as possible for the FIRST time on network TV was very short-sighted in my opinion.
As for the WWE Thunderbird, we’ve finally reached the end of one of his journeys. Last night was the last PPV at the Thunderdome, as WWE will be taking to the road again soon. It’s time to stop this digital crap factory and get back to public reading and listening.
I said at the beginning of this year-long mess that I enjoyed trying something new, but in practice it didn’t work. The fewer giant 3D CGI objects flying around the arena, the better. The same goes for the obvious noise from the audience and the sitcom-like soundtrack. There is absolutely no emotion involved, and it will not generate the same interest as a real human connection. I mean, Vince, that’s not gonna put a smile on your face, buddy!
Maybe I’ll break from my AEW-only format for That’s Not Wrestling soon and do a Thunderdome story before it’s permanently retired. It seems to be on everyone’s lips this week, and I think it’s best to voice our reservations now, lest anyone think it’s a good idea to bring it up again in the future.
Even Tony Han made the right decision last year (probably) when he decided not to give AEW a WWE Thunderdome-like setup. Personally, I feel like Thunderdome is giving something back to the company, just like some other behaviors, but in a very different way. It is the atmosphere in the company that suffers the most, not just the general perception of the company. Tony partly agrees; he recently spoke to UPI.com.
It was a great idea, and the WWE did it, but it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I respect that, it’s good and economical, but I wanted to keep looking for a way to do a show every week for the fans. And the fans of Daily’s Place supported us. We’re built like a wrestling area with a weekly audience. I’m very proud of that. – Tony Khan
Ignoring the comment that he thinks he owns the wrestling grounds, even a blind squirrel finds a nut, and eventually Tony Han stumbles upon something positive. I mean, there may have been a financial element behind that decision, or Tony may have played the reverse fairy tale for a change. Who knows? Historically, nonsense has flowed from the orifices of all EPPs and senior officials at one time or another.
I think it was one of the best moments of our company and I was very happy to come back and do the first big 100% safe wrestling show. -Tony Han.
Absolutely sure? Ahahaha! Oh, is he serious? Ahahahaha! Tell that to the long list of employees who have been injured in your father’s two years in business. Talk about mistakes.
What I am most proud of is the fact that I have no equipment when I host these live events. We’ve had fan shows since August, and we haven’t had any yet. -Tony Han.
That’s about the only part that didn’t turn out to be unpleasant. That’s why you’re so proud of it, clown.
And finally, good news for everyone! Samoa Joe returned to the WWE this week. Well, technically, he’s back in NXT. Apparently Triple H wasn’t too happy with Vince McMahon’s decision to get rid of the Samoan Performance Machine, and Joe was re-contracted and returned to NXT TV this week. At this time, there are no indications that he will ever be back in the ring, but his immediate plans are to work as an enforcer, at least for the foreseeable future.
I’ve been a fan of Samoa Joe since his days in TNA and ROH and I hated to see him used on WWE’s main roster. Joe has long been a crowd pleaser, astounding audiences with his explosive work and incredible combination of styles and skills. It’s like someone in WWE didn’t want him to work anywhere else, but they also didn’t want him to overshadow any of the toys they had on staff ….. Especially another Samoan named Joe.
That’s it for this week. Evaluate and discuss! Don’t forget to follow the This Is Not Wrestling show published every Thursday on GeeksandGamers.com. Keep it up, and I’ll see you next Monday to discuss #AnotherWeekOfWrestling!
