Hi all,

Sorry the link doesn't go to the preview proper for the show, as at the moment, it just redirects to a list of WWE programs. Anyhow, if you didn't see the news, Black Thursday hit and here are the victims:

Samoa Joe, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Tucker, Kalisto, Mojo Rawley, Bo Dallas and Wesley Blake.

Tucky had the best take on things, with this under the caption "making lemonade":

Wonder if he use RVD-branded papers for that. Also, rumor is they aren't done axing people with more cuts (mainly down in NXT) on the 16th. So let the speculation begin!

It just shows how bloated the WWE roster actually is.  Samoa Joe was good on commentary, but if he he was getting paid more for being a in ring talent I can see it.  Hes injury prone, but i hope he finds a good place.

The iconics blows my mind.  They were over as a tag team, but were broken up just to be put into other random tag teams, and somehow  Tamina Lana, and Natalia still have jobs

Same goes with Chelsea Green.  Shes injury prone, and ive heard (rumors) she starts a lot of drama.

Mickie, I still love you, call me, well set up a play date.

The rest I cant remember them doing anything for well over a year.  As far as NXT goes, until they start doing the lice crowd loops theres not a lot of place for talent on Tuesdays

To me the Iconics were the biggest surprise, specifically Billie Kay. I'm not a fan of hers or anything, but they went out of their way to put her on TV literally every week and even made sure to book her for Wrestlemania... that's some quality long term planning right there.

Kalisto was ridiculously underused. I guess this puts a rest to any "maybe Bo Dallas will get involved with The Fiend" ideas too.

Typically the NXT cuts end up being folks who haven't carved out any TV time so I'm not really seeing any big shocks coming there. I guess we shall see...

"Word" was Bo was wrestling some test matches for the equipment used at WM and then out of the company. I could see people that hadn't been used for a while but some of those cut had just been on TV this past week or in WM.

(guess my going last SD "Hey, Kalisto got on-screen this week" was a bit too close to the mark for things.)

I went to McDonald's Drive-thru after work, pulled up to the window and Samoa Joe was there to take my money. He asked me if there were any 180 pound guys that could bump off of him so he could look good again.

I can't believe AEW's next champ, but it's going to be interesting to see what they do with The Friend as the world champ.

So shot one is in the books, no pain other than the arm, but whew, so, so tired. Just napped about two hours, hopefully can stay awake through this, then it's probably bedtime.

Have we seen a post-WM picture of Sasha Bank's welt?  As an amateur horror makeup enthusiast, I would LOVE to see how that injury has progressed.

Hey, remember the late 90's/early 00's when a bunch of white kids started up boy bands and tried to sound "urban" and cool? That was Roman during that promo.

Wouldn't he just spin him around at the top of the ramp & when he built up enough force, let go & hope he lands in the ring?

With the list of Wrestlers released, its seems Jericho has his next 3 months of Podcasts ready to go.  Every other show is disgruntled ex Wwe talent bashing WWE.

same with AEW .  I 100% see Joe in AEW or ROH, cutting a promo bashing his former employer.  Followed soon by him getting hurt and sidelined for another 5 months

All-time is HBK, Angle, Dreamer, Savage a close 4th, Kane probably rounds out top 5.

Current, SHeamus, Cesaro, Drew. Riddle and Lashley are really close

Or at least a visual pin/tap by Roman, so they can further this along.

Annnd, if you all get bored, check out Allie's latest YouTube video where she tastes Oreos. She has a special guest and a first time moment in it too.

(also, since AEW drops more easter eggs and plot points than Marvel, it might be planting the seeds for a later angle down the road)

ROH could use him a lot more at the moment than AEW. But judging by this week's viewer numbers, IMPACT might get the first pick on that one as they really need the help. That and their parent Anthem just bought Invicta, so they have cash to spend.
