Another week. another breakdown of Tiffany’s takes! Are you intrigued by the same topics she is?

Jon Moxley

Have I mentioned how much I love this Jon Moxley/Eddie Kingston feud? Cuz, I do! I love this story of a spurned friendship and it not being just business for Mox or Kingston. I cannot wait for Full Gear in November.  I do find it a little frustrating that Kingston and Mox aren’t having more confrontations, but I guess it’s to whet the appetite for Full Gear.

Roman Reigns

This family saga is getting Corleone levels of ugly. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving every minute of this shit. This is WWE at its soap opera best, but man is this getting ugly. Even turning Rikishi against Jey is some deep levels of ugly. I’m waiting for Jey to point out that Roman didn’t beat him clean either time, Jimmy gave up for Jey at the Clash and Roman basically blackmailed Jey into giving up at Hell in a Cell. Never mind, Jey seems to have thrown in with Roman.

Seth Rollins

Okay, since I was in a fog last week, it looks like Romeo has turned on the Montagues and the Capulets ain’t having it. However, I like that Angie, at least in in Aalyah’s corner. Once again, heel!Seth is the best Seth, but Aalyah choosing Murphy over her family is straight up out of Shakespeare. So, Romeo is out of the Montagues and Juliet is out of the Capulets, now what?

Women’s Wrestling

Good god, how long are we going to be stuck with Baszler and Jax as tag champs? Also, why is Lana getting pushed over actually talented women? All the talent in that division and we’re stilling getting Lana.

I cannot abide Bianca Belair. She is not all WWE and her fans think she is. Also, that triple threat was weird and awkward. I like Billie Kay, but she always seems so awkward in the ring. Nattie…Nattie is good, but she doesn’t have enough personality to get beyond the mid-card (I promise I’m not going to spend the whole night tearing down the women’s division). I like Carmella’s new gimmick, but I’m also puzzled by it. I want Sasha’s outfit like NOW, though I hate to think how strict of a diet I’d have to be on to fit into it. I seriously hope Sasha wins next week, I’m over her losing her rematches. GIVE SASHA A LONG TITLE REIGN!

I love that the AEW women get more matches on AEW Dark, but there should be more time for them made on Dynamite. C’mon, put the women on Dynamite, give the women who are starting to outnumber the dudes in terms of viewing numbers a sign you’re paying attention! Anna Jay continues to be one of my faves on Dark. I love that her feud with Brandi Rhodes is continuing.

I appreciate AEW showcasing the NWA Women’s Championship, and helping out the NWA, but I’m a little perturbed that an outsider promotion gets time on the company flagship show and most of AEW’s signed female talent not only doesn’t get a shot at the NWA title, but also is relegated to Dark. At least we got something for the AEW Women’s Title: Hikaru Shida vs Nyla Rose II.

Retribution

Okay, I loved the look back at Retribution and why they’re here. Seriously good stuff. Not thrilled about Retribution losing AGAIN, but it was by DQ instead of pinfall. Still, wishing Retribution was getting more. Also, love Mia Yim in this match, kinda wish her and Martinez were competing too.

WWE Third Party Situation

Can WWE ever try to not take the fun out of things? Apparently, WWE has…insisted that the superstars with 3rd party accounts (Cameo, Twitch, etc) suspend those accounts or has seized control of those account until a meeting sometime next week, and apparently this crackdown includes people like Paige, who is under contract, but can’t wrestle and isn’t being used for anything. Like, they’re keeping fans engaged by doing this stuff and the fans who engage in this KNOW THAT WRESTLING IS STAGED, so there’s no reason to worry about KAYFABE. If this is about money, there has to be a way for both sides to meet in the middle that won’t end with taking all the fun out of the 3rd party accounts.

Karl Anderson Situation

In case you didn’t hear about it, Karl Anderson of the Good Brothers/Bullet Club/The Club was called out for cheating by his ‘hot Asian’ wife on Saturday, to which he responded by calling her a slut. Yeesh. I’m not about to try and dive into this or take sides, but history has shown that going public with your marital issues tends to go badly for the person who went public, but Anderson’s response was unacceptable in every respect of the world. If your marriage is imploding, don’t take it onto social media.

Election 2020

Yes, I know you guys are REALLY sick of this, and I promise it’ll be the last one. Election Day is November 3, which will be TOMORROW when this article is published. PLEASE, exercise your hard fought right to vote. I won’t say who to vote for, that’s between you and your conscience, but there is too much at stake to just sit on your hands because you don’t like either candidate.

Personal Note

I want to apologize for the poor quality of my takes last week. Unfortunately, I was going through a personal crisis and wasn’t really paying attention to what was going on with much of anything. Long story short:  My 15 year old cat became very sick last week and had to be rushed to the vet. He is doing better, but I got some news that upset me greatly and I was trying to deal with that. I give you my word that I will do everything I can to give you guys the best takes I can and I again apologize for last week.

NXT Minus 6: Let’s Make History!

Bradley Jay makes history in this week’s edition of the NXT Minus 6. What kind of history is he making? Well, that’s for you to read and see!

Published

WWE NXT Undisputed Era Breezango

Bradley Jay makes history in this week’s edition of the NXT Minus 6. What kind of history is he making? Well, that’s for you to read and see!

This will be the most historic column in the history of history!

Less than half of Americans know that alcohol is a carcinogen. Big Booze wants to keep it that way.

6. Did you notice how many people want to make history? It’s all anybody talked about this week. I turned it into a drinking game. Every time someone said they wanted to make history, I took a shot. After 10 minutes, I died from alcohol poisoning. So much history.

NXT's Shotzi Blackheart Reveals Ember Moon as Women's Dusty Classic Partner

5. Shotzi Blackheart will make history as the first person with green hair to win a Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament. Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro will become the first tag team in history to win a DRTTC whose collective weight would qualify for 205 Live. Ember Moon will make history as the first person to leave NXT, return and win a tournament that didn’t exist the first time she was there. BTW, the tag team I want to see is Kayden Carter & Ember Moon.  

MSK Revealed After Debut on Tonight's WWE NXT

4. Johnny Gargano and Austin Theory will make history as the first mentor/mentee team to win the DRTTC. KUSHIDA will make history as the first wrestler to win in all caps! MSK will make history as having the most God-awful name of any team to win. Unless it’s a shout out to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, then the name is doo doo on a stick.

Killian Dain | WWE3. Grizzled Young Veterans are sssssooooooon to make history as the first team to lose in the finals and win it the next year. Killian Dain by himself will be the hairiest team ever to win the DRTTC. Bollywood Boyz will make history as the first…I can’t finish that sentence. Those gomers aren’t winning Jack Squat. 

WWE NXT Releases the 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Bracket

2. Overall, it was a good start to the tournament. Every match was 3.5 stars. Nothing memorable, nothing horrible. Breezango versus Undisputed Era was the best of the bunch. It would have been better without the horribly overbooked end. I’m not sure the point of it all if Breezango couldn’t use it to pick up a victory.   

Video: Wade Barrett sits down with Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher before NXT Fight Pit on WWE NXT - Wrestling Inc.

1. “You look like a man who is questioning if he’s still got it.” It was a filler line, but that’s the story! I’m slightly excited for Tommaso Ciampa versus Timothy Thatcher, primarily because of the Fight Pit. Right now, it’s two tough guys wanting to beat each other up. I want to see Ciampa fighting to prove he’s still got it. I want to see Thatcher fighting to crush the soul of the locker room leader. That’s the story.

Cook: Breaking Down The 2021 NFL Divisional Round

Steve Cook breaks down the NFL Divisional Round Playoffs, getting you ready for one of the best football weekends of the year!

NFL Divisional Round Playoffs Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

Steve Cook breaks down the NFL Divisional Round Playoffs, getting you ready for one of the best football weekends of the year!

Many experts say that the Divisional Round is the best weekend of the NFL season, and I agree with them. The Wild Card Weekend gets rid of all the riff-raff, and we’re left with teams that deserve to be there. A bitter pill to swallow for me as a Cincinnati Bengals fan whose team can never win one playoff game when they get there, due to the Bo Jackson Curse. I still have to swallow it because it is what it is. The cream rises to the top, and any team that manages to win one playoff game has earned their position on the stage.

I know everybody out there is wondering who will win these games. Fortunately, I’m here to break it down for you, and let you know what’s going to happen. After all, I did win 3 out of the 3 fantasy leagues I was in this season. Just saying, I know what these folks are capable of statistically. Ask anybody here on The Chairshot. I broke them all down and made them humble at some point during the fantasy season. Laid waste to all these folks, who all are intelligent in their own right. No disrespect to anybody I was up against. Their arms were just too short to box with God.

Saturday, 4:35 PM: LA Rams at Green Bay Packers

You know it’s a stacked weekend of action when this is the curtain-jerker. We got the best defense in the NFL going against Aaron Rodgers, on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. Where there will be 6,000 ticketed fans, along with first responders. Not enough to make a difference like a typical Packers home game.

As good as that Rams defense is, you don’t like them nearly as much when Aaron Donald is off the field. Donald says he’s ready to do, so does Jared Goff, so the Rams are heading into Green Bay with all hands on deck. I went with the Rams at +6.5, largely because they’re looking as healthy as possible heading into this one, and you have to be impressed with what they did in Seattle. That being said, the Packers represent much stiffer competition. And I don’t care if Aaron Rodgers has only won one Super Bowl, I’m still picking his team to win in Green Bay. They don’t have to leave Wisconsin until the Super Bowl, though they might want to leave before then.

Yeah, I know. Kentucky guy talking state smack.

Cook’s Pick: Green Bay Packers

Saturday, 8:15 PM: Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills

Lamar Jackson finally got that monkey off of his back and won a playoff game. I was in a tough spot seeing Lamar compared to Andy Dalton, a perfectly competent Bengals QB that couldn’t win a postseason game. This is the closest line right now, because Vegas and everybody knows this: Once you let Lamar Jackson out of his cage, he’ll pile the bodies to the sky. One of the most fun athletes to watch of my, or anybody else’s, lifetime. I mean, if you don’t like Lamar, what do you like?

I’m a big fan of the Bills’ story, and I’d like for them to go a long way. Josh Allen is a talented SOB and fun to watch. I’m not sure he’s as fun as Lamar Jackson, but then I’ve seen many more Lamar Jackson games. This will be a big game for the future of both men, and might not be the last time we see them face off in the playoffs. I picked Baltimore at +2.5 largely because of my Lamar Jackson fandom, and the fact that the Ravens are just one of those franchises that excel in the playoffs. You always see them making a deep run. Buffalo? Well, they had four pretty deep runs, and you don’t mention any of those in Buffalo if you want to get out alive.

Cook’s Pick: Baltimore Ravens

Sunday, 3:05 PM: Cleveland Browns at Kansas City Chiefs

One of those games that will be closer than it should be for most of the game. Imagine the Browns going into an overly loud Arrowhead Stadium against Patrick Mahomes. It would be ugly. The fact that this stadium won’t be crowded as usual kind of gives Cleveland a chance. The spread is -10. I’d typically take Cleveland on those odds in this environment. Except…man, that offense is pretty awesome and I bet KC wants to put on a show. Pittsburgh couldn’t do it because they’re awful, but Kansas City definitely can.

Browns fans are hoping that the Chiefs overlook them, and the team itself is trying to use Chiefs quotes as bulletin board material, but I just don’t see Kansas City overlooking these guys. The “NOBODY RESPECTS US!” motivational tactic is as old as time and more often than not is based off of nothing. Listen, if you’ve made it to this point of the NFL season, there is somebody out there that respects you. This is the best Browns team since the days of Bernie Kosar. Just don’t ask Cleveland fans of a certain age what happened when they played an AFC West team in the playoffs. Still a touchy subject.

I’m kind of hoping the Browns go away for one simple reason: It’s awkward being a Bengals fan and seeing everybody in love with these guys. Not to be “NOBODY RESPECTS US!” guy, but I sure don’t remember the Bengals getting the same type of good vibes from the people when they were good. What’s up with that?

Cook’s Pick: Kansas City Chiefs

Sunday, 6:40 PM: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints

We got Tom Brady & Drew Brees up past their bedtime. Nah, we need to get past the old people jokes, as honestly I’m pretty happy to see a game with two quarterbacks older than me playing in it. Makes me feel not quite as old. They still got skill too, both men were in the top 10 QBR rankings for the 2020 regular season. I’m pretty sure QBR gives Brady & Brees 50 points just based off of being Brady & Brees, but they still had impressive seasons. We’re talking about their buddy Ben Roethlisberger possibly retiring, but nobody’s really talking about either of these guys doing it. Unless they just want to go out on top, which with Brees is definitely a possibility.

The Saints won the first two meetings, and we all know the old saying about teams that meet three times. We also know that it’s dang near impossible to beat a Tom Brady-quarterbacked team in the postseason. Dude’s won more postseason games than some teams have won games over the past twenty years. OK, a little exaggeration, but would you be surprised if it’s true? Betting against Tom Brady in the postseason is like betting against Undertaker at WrestleMania. You just don’t do it.

Unless it’s in New Orleans.

Wrestling Fans

See what I did there? I like the Saints because I like their skill position players better. Alvin Kamara looks good and recovered from the rona. Michael Thomas is back in the mix, which can only be a good thing for the Saints’ passing game. They also have a slightly better defense, and we all know that as much as we talk about the shiny quarterbacks, defense wins championships. Saints in a barn burner to end the weekend on a good note.

Cook’s Pick: New Orleans Saints

Thanks for reading! Fun to do the ol’ sports again, maybe I’ll do more of it in the future…
