From the WOW to the WTF; Tiffany breaks out all of her thoughts regarding WWE and AEW!

WWE

For all my thoughts on the constant WTF of WWE

  • So, Kevin Owens is injured in his Mania match and Seth gets blamed, even though no one is quite sure where in the match Owens hurt his ankle.
  • Jimmy Uso being out for injury SUCKS!
  • I find it odd that with all the ‘Best of WWE’ stuff, there’s nothing on The Rock or Undertaker. It can’t be just that it’s the ‘Best of the Past Decade’ when they’ve got Austin, Triple H, and Shawn Michaels in there.
  • If you haven’t had the chance to see Carmella’s Superstar impersonations, I HIGHLY recommend them.
  • The series about the Undertaker looks REALLY good.
  • Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae vs Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch is something I could go for.
  • Disney buying any part of WWE would be a ‘Turner buys WCW’ level disaster.
  • I’m still not big on them doing two MitB matches at once.
  • WWE edits Roman out of the Seth Rollins cash-in to make Seth look strong by implying that he pinned Lesnar, but then feature that match in the ‘Best of Roman Reigns’ where it’ll be revealed as a lie.
  • I don’t think Seth Rollins is so much a problematic person as he is someone people almost wait on to say something so they can complain about what a whiny person he is.
  • Last Ride is SUCH a good show.

 

Raw

  • MVP is always nice to see.
  • A VIP Lounge with Asuka, Baszler, and Jax is enough to make me change the channel. Or click Fast Forward.
  • Okay, Baszler and Asuka taking out Jax was cool. Still don’t like any of them.
  • I’m really disappointed that Shelton Benjamin didn’t get to advance in the Gauntlet match.
  • WWE really wants us to like Humberto Carrillo, but he has no grab. He’s got the skills, says the right things, but there’s nothing interesting about him.
  • Okay, so all that build for Lashley to get DQ’d?
  • Styles was resurrected with a mean streak.
  • Styles being in the MitB is a good idea.
  • Styles not accepting defeat possibly keeps the feud with Taker open.
  • Nope, still hate this gimmick.
  • MVP as a manager is interesting.
  • We’re getting more Edge vs Orton.
  • I’m not thrilled Alexander and Ricochet were beaten. Hopefully, it won’t hurt them long term.
  • Viking Raiders vs Street Profits was REALLY good. I’m a little surprised that it wasn’t for the title.
  • Liv Morgan vs Charlotte Flair? I’m down.
  • Charlotte wins, the Women’s Division loses.

NXT

  • If all Kross and Bordeaux have to offer is the entrance, they’re not going to last long.
  • Flair vs Shirai – No shock. Ripley wanting her rematch – no shock.
  • Cole retaining due to UE interference – no shock.
  • Gargano as a heel is annoying. Candice needs to stand on her own.
  • Green vs Li was really good.

SmackDown

  • Mandy needs to find someone to do her roots.
  • Kudos to Mandy for selling the injury that is supposedly fake.
  • Mandy vs Sonya was REALLY good.
  • I’m intrigued by Jeff Hardy vs Sheamus
  • Boss-Hug vs Tamina/Evans was REALLY good.
  • If the Hacker isn’t Mustafa Ali, I’m going to be pissed.

Money in the Bank 2020

  • Jeff Hardy, no matter how many times he messes up, will always be great and be my inner teenager’s crush.
  • Hardy vs Cesaro was REALLY good!
  • Not a fan of New Day still being tag champs. We need the Usos.
  • Lashley vs Truth stunk. Why was this on the main card, but Hardy vs Cesaro was the kickoff show match?
  • Bayley vs Tamina was really good. I like that Bayley won sneaky.
  • Well, that Strowman/Wyatt match gave me a headache.
  • McIntyre vs Rollins was good, but there’s no path forward for Rollins now.
  • They should’ve found a way for Sasha Banks to enter the Women’s Money in the Bank. Not here for more overrated Asuka nonsense.
  • They aren’t serious, right? They aren’t really going to have Otis win a Heavyweight championship, right?

AEW

Here are my AEW musings, especially since they’ll be LIVE this week!

  • Cody continuing to swear that he won’t challenge for the AEW Title doesn’t make sense.
  • If the TNT Championship isn’t a TV Title, then what is it?
  • The Dynamite card is: Cody Rhodes vs Joey Janela, Kenny Omega and Matt Hardy teaming up against the Inner Circle, and Jon Moxley vs Frankie Kazarian. Good card.
  • Fuck Chris Cruise. AEW now has to pay $10k over the Moxley/Omega match because he decided to complain to the Maryland State Athletic Commission. Fuck that guy.
  • I’m intrigued by the AEW Casino Ladder match.
  • Darby Allin as the first entrant isn’t a surprise. I want him vs Mox II
  • Jericho’s assertion that he’s the Best in the World is both on brand for his character and the God’s honest truth.

Dark

  • Ryan Pyles vs Random Dark Order Goon. I could’ve sworn it was supposed to be Kip Sabian.
  • Okay, the Twitter tells me that RDOG is Preston Vance. Good to know.
  • Haven’t seen anyone win off a spinebuster for a long time.
  • Shawn Dean vs Sammy Guevara.
  • Guevara has improved so much.
  • Guevara vs Dean was REALLY good. Hope Dean sticks around after things get back to normal.
  • Kip Sabian vs Colt Cabana. Yawn.
  • Colt Cabana is a goof. And I don’t mean that in a nice way.
  • Good match, glad Sabian won, by hook or crook.

Dynamite

  • Rhodes vs Allin was magnificent.
  • Give me AEW’s ‘Wrestlers in the crowd’ over the empty Performance Center.
  • Janela’s hair is a choice. Not a good one, but a choice.
  • Not sure who the guy in the suit in the crowd was, but he’s awesome!
  • Janela is SUCH a great talent who should be used more.
  • Why does Nyla lick her hand? That grosses me out.
  • Nyla might be the champ, but Britt Baker is the STAR of the AEW Women’s Division.
  • MJF and Spears are so full of BS.
  • Not a fan of Mox being on early as champ, but I’m guessing the big tag match is going to go long.
  • Mox and Kazarian needs to happen every week. Thanks
  • Brandi Rhodes is my hero. Get him, girl!
  • I think the only reason the snake spot didn’t freak me out is that I’ve watched Roberts do that for thirty years and am confident that it wouldn’t have been cleared if he hadn’t promised to keep Brandi safe. Plus, it was a small python.
  • Tag Team Street fight was FANTASTIC!
  • Kenny Omega getting to do Poetry in Motion with Matt must’ve been a big fanboy moment.
  • This shit is fucking WILD! Love Hardcore Wrestling.
  • Matt Hardy went through all his personalities in this match, plus a clothes change in an ice cooler.
  • Le Sex Gods pinned Omega.
  • Next Week’s Card: Jungle Express vs Best Friends, Women’s Match, Jericho in action, Brodie Lee vs Chris Daniels, Lance Archer and Jake Roberts. Looks good!

Misc.

These are my thoughts and opinions that don’t fit in any other category

  •  People who hate on a wrestler’s spouse just because they are with the wrestler, are assholes.
  • The Twitter wrestling community is either really toxic or really wonderful, there seems to be no in-between.
  • The ‘comedian’ who called wrestling fans a very insensitive name, is a fucking fool.
  • Alberto Del Rio is a piece of shit. End of discussion.

AJ’s Thoughts: Five Potential Returns

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

Published

With Trips in charge and already starting to bring back some people that didn’t work in Vince’s picture, AJ got an idea. Who else could we see on the horizon radar?

With everything going on with WWE, the one thing we have all been hyped about are all of these returns. Dakota Kai made her return at SummerSlam alongside Io and Bayley and now on last SmackDown, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their returns in a big way against Drew McIntyre and showed the Hourglass to The Bloodline.

With all of that, there have been things in the pipeline saying Triple H’s foot isn’t off the pedal so these are 5 returns from either NXT, main roster or even Try-Outs that I would love to see happen with the new regime.

1. Johnny Gargano

Now this is a name that people have been saying, “Maybe Impact or MLW” but, what about a return? Gargano didn’t renew his contract, most likely to be with his family which is a valid and amazing reason, will never disrespect that. If he were to return, there would be a handful of great reasons. Maybe a singles run with the Intercontinental or United States but with Ciampa getting limelight in the main roster from RAW, what if we get a tag team reunion?

WWE is hurting for Tag Teams and what better than to scare off The Bloodline, loosen  the stranglehold of championships with some Do It Yourself action. DIY reunion could be amazing, especially with newer faces showing up to get championship aspirations like Kross and Ciampa. Want to break the hierarchy? Do It Yourself.

2. James Storm

This one is a little bit weird and off. On one hand, who doesn’t love the Tennessee Cowboy, Jimmy James Storm? On the other, he is 45 and getting some nagging injuries as of late. So why would I say Triple H should bring James Storm back and give him something for the main roster? One of the things I said for Gargano, we have a lack of something and The Usos might need to watch two things in the rearview.

Watch your Money and your Alcohol.

Beer Money showing up in WWE would be amazing in my personal opinion. The Bloodline jump Roode, someone in a hoodie or jacket comes up and jumps them to even the fight and as soon as one Uso remained in the ring, the figure goes down and the old stomping goes off and we hear “BEER…” and Roode looks around and gets hyped up and shouts, “…MONEY!”

3. Big Cass



Since his departure from WWE, he has done something I have said since they split him off from Enzo. Take him through the Kevin Nash School of How To Big Man. ROH and Impact are great examples that he actually cleaned up and worked on what he has to do to be good in the ring. He can work the microphone, he can work the ring so we got a new big boy to take on the WWE once again.

Now I could have said Enzo and Cass to rejoin but, I’m sure the antics of Enzo will get Cass in deep water along with the fact that I already made two tag team predictions, we don’t need another. Cass brings a lot to the table and was kind of unproven in WWE because he was just the big enforcer to the more charismatic Enzo. Give this man about six months in the ring and you have your next MASSIVE problem in the IC or US Championship scene or even more.

4. Bronson Reed



The big man from down under is a former NXT North American Champion. He looked to have a good push going with that championship but he got release. If you wonder where he went… he actually made a pit stop in Impact Wrestling as JONAH with the most fire theme song in recent history I swear… I will link the theme song and Trips… please. Get rights to this theme song. I will be a bigger Bronson Reed fan.

Bronson to me is the weird man in all of this but, I think with Triple H involved, he could get something going for him with a good singles champion run or a big threat to go through like a gatekeeper of sorts. Big boy with a great amount of athleticism? Can’t really hate on that considering the last time we saw athletic bigger people were Keith Lee and… what was that one guy? Sherman Tank with a Ferrari Engine…?

5. Bray Wyatt

And the last one is the obvious one in all of this. Yes… we have Judgment Day as the somewhat supernatural dark group but we know the true successor of the supernatural and that is “The Eater of Worlds”, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt. This time around, I don’t think we will get the Jekyl and Hyde, Mister Rogers gimmick. I believe this time around we get full darkness and mayhem. We get the darkness and the theory of reverting back to your prime.

To make a refresher… Miz went back to being the cocky narcissist after fighting The Fiend. Finn turned back to the Prince and much more. With guys like Edge returning, maybe we see the return of the Heel Ultimate Opportunist, maybe a Fiend fight with AJ Styles to get the TN-AJ perhaps. Possibilities are endless and with a great mind like Wyatt for character and execution, I think Hunter will pick up the phone and Let Him In.

– There are clearly others that I could say, or maybe even didn’t think about, but hey, that’s the Chairshot way of Always Using Your Head. Those are just five returns that could happen and hopefully you read this before RAW or SmackDown and who knows if I get any of these right, maybe I missed an obvious one or maybe we get a giant signing that nobody thought possible. Let me and all of Chairshot know!

King’s Greatest Hits Of Jeff Hardy

As he battles his demons, Chris King looks at some more positive moments in Jeff Hardy’s career!

Published

on

Jeff Hardy WWE Smackdown

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the disturbing news that former WWE superstar and recent AEW signee Jeff Hardy, was arrested again for multiple charges including a DUI.  Hardy has had a hard and tragic road of recovery throughout the years in multiple wrestling promotions.

Not too long ago, Hardy walked out on WWE after they were rumored to have offered the former world champion to go to treatment for his substance abuse issues. Hardy refused and said that he was better but, as we saw the demons are still lurking and got the best of him again.

I have seen some nasty comments and even some distasteful memes about the AEW superstar and felt compelled to go against the grain. Instead of kicking a man when he’s down, I’m going to put together a greatest hits for the “Charismatic Enigma.”

Jeff Hardy & The TLC Match

Everyone can say that Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon helped innovate the iconic ladder match and you are right, but Jeff Hardy and his death-defying stunts changed the concept of the match forever. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian and their iconic TLC match should have their wing in the Hall of Fame. The risks all six superstars took for the adoration of the crowd could have ended all of their illustrious careers. In the words of Vince McMahon, It’s such good shit!

Jeff Hardy Earns The Undertaker’s Respect

On the July 1st, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw, Hardy delivered the performance of a lifetime nearly winning the WWE Undisputed Championship from The Undertaker in an incredible ladder match. The young up-and-comer was faced with his greatest task yet, challenging for the most prestigious title in sports entertainment. Hardy showed that without a shadow of a doubt he deserved to be in the main event scene, but came within minutes of defeating Taker. At the time of the match, Hardy was still finding his footing as a singles competitor and earned the respect of the champion and legend.

Swanton Bomb From The Heavens

When I think of the daredevil Jeff Hardy, I can’t help but think of this one crazy-as-hell stunt. At WWE One Night Stand 2008, Hardy faced off against the juggernaut Umaga in a falls count anywhere match. This match was so insane as both superstars fought into the parking lot. Hardy is one of the craziest and bravest superstars, hit a Swanton Bomb off a damn stage truck onto Umaga. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.

Hardy Wins The WWE Championship 

In 2008, Hardy finally made his way to the main event title picture alongside partner Triple H. HHH was Hardy’s mentor in some sort of way which led to the daredevil achieving his lifelong dream of becoming WWE champion. At the 2008 Armageddon pay-per-view, Hardy would face HHH and longtime rival Edge in a triple-threat match for the title. In what was a great match between all three superstars, Hardy delivered a Swanton Bomb to Edge to win the illustrious championship.

Straight Edge Problems For Hardy

The following year, Hardy found himself in the way of young-up-and-comer CM Punk who is looking to make an example out of him. Punk had won the Money in the Bank briefcase for the second year in a row and took advantage of Hardy to win the world title. What started as mutual respect between both superstars changed drastically, when Punk started throwing jabs at Hardy for his drug and substance abuse real-life issues. Punk would form his infamous stable known as the Straight Edge Society. This is a very underrated feud and you should go back and watch it in its entirety. The promos are gold.

The Hardy Boyz Return To WWE

Both Matt and Jeff Hardy found success in multiple other wrestling promotions including Ring of Honor, and TNA during their time away from WWE. Both brothers were struggling with their vices and made poor life choices but straightened up their act over the years. In 2017, the Hardy Boyz would face longtime rivals The Young Bucks in ROH. The following night the adored tag team would make their incredible return to WWE at WrestleMania 33. Matt and Jeff would be named the final team in the Fatal 4-way ladder match for the Raw Tag Team Championships. The pop these two received was insane and very much deserved. They would go on to win the match and win the titles to capitalize on their momentum.

Jeffery Nero Hardy Makes AEW Debut

From 2017-to 2022 Jeff Hardy would find himself pigeonholed in the mid-card title picture. He would have feuds with a plethora of superstars including Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton. Orton and Hardy had a nasty Hell in a Cell match back in 2018. Earlier this year, Hardy was seen running around after the 24/7 Championship, which was disappointing to see. After being genuinely unhappy in WWE, Hardy would make his AEW debut on the March 9th episode of AEW Dynamite. Hardy would come to the aid of his brother and longtime partner.

This week news broke that Hardy had been arrested for multiple charges including a DUI. While it’s easy to beat a man while he’s down, how about we uplift and try to encourage him to get the help he needs.

As a longtime wrestling fan, I have the utmost respect for Hardy and wish him the best of luck in his battle with addiction.
