If you understand a little bit about the kind of performance wrestling is and the stories that are told in the ring, NXT is full of invested crowds and top notch wrestlers.

    The main WWE show is spread thin and it's a lot less consistent, although it has some wrestlers I like, especially in the women's division. Ric Flair's daughter is champ right now.
    I loved the shit out of NXT. I always kind of get sad when a guy like Neville gets called up to job, when the wrestling in the "developmental" brand is just so much better.

    That number is what the wrestling business calls a "work." Apparently it was still around 94000 though.

    I have a lot of hope for HHH's vision going forward. There are a few hopeful signs. Apparently Kevin Owens spoke up and got a major booking change for himself, Aj Styles and Dean Ambrose in the Royal Rumble. The last guys to pull that kind of thing off were Stone Cold, HBK, etc.

    My fantasy booking has Sami Zayn losing a retirement match and returning as Generico.

    Yeah I think WWE is ostensibly better than its been in a long long time, but all the injuries have made it hard to watch. CM Punk quit, Seth Rollins got hurt, Daniel Bryan being forced to retire pretty much broke my heart.

    I hadn't even realized Sami was even in Wrestlemania because he had had a handful of back to back injuries when I had last been paying attention, and I wasn't sure if he was going to be able to stay healthy. I love him and Owens getting to play out their ROH/NXT rivalry at Wrestlemania, I especially loved that Zack Ryder somehow got the IC title out of it.

    When I lived in Vegas I went to a Monday Night Raw event with my son for his birthday. Not a huge wrestling fan, but I knew enough...lots of people made their way there...lots of people were unannounced, like the Rock and a few other big names. I think our tickets were 80 bucks for both of them and for just the spectacle and show, I feel like I got off cheap. It was 4 hours long and they had all kinds of shit going on, so there were not any lulls. Well worth it.

    Yup. I've known the family for years. She grew up in Latvia in a missionary family of American parents.
