    Looks like this Jericho-Omega II storyline might be a Jericho "I'm the star" ego-based story. Puts the "Change the Universe" line from Jericho at the first rally in perspective, since Omega and the Golden Elite's line was "Change the World". Also fits the newly-crowned McMahon hierarchy of everything 'Universal' being greater than anything 'World' (since Jericho is a WWE fella).

    As a result, the angle does not deserve the overly critical concerns about Kayfabe (after Jericho and Omega did a podcast, cruise, etc after their Wrestle Kingdom match). Also, those who listen to "Killing the Town" would've heard Don Callis tell the stories of Jericho being a nice bloke but turning into an animal once something pissed him off.

    All in all, I like it because it makes sense. It should be a good year of wrestling stories. The rest of the year looks like NXT, NJPW and AEW are the ones to watch. Looking forward to the Okada-Jay White-Tanahashi and Ciampa-Gargano stories playing out throughout the year. Hopefully Omega does a deal with NJPW and does a run of good matches at the G1.
    I found AEW's unveiling in Jacksonville to be hilarious, literally across the street from where Smackdown Live was happening. heard WWE people didn't allow AEW shirts inside that night.

    I'm starting to enjoy the Kevin Kelly and Rocky Romero commentary partnership on NJPW. Both seem very invested in current story-lines and Rocky adds some depth, as since he's still around the roster behind the scenes day-to-day, he incorporates real things that happened that day of the tour into the story-line.

    On a story-line front, Ospreay looks like he'll be in the Omega position in a year or so and Okada's resurgence continues.
    Awaiting the start of our youth project.

    It was pretty fucked up, however watching Travis Browne punch the guys lights out afterwards was a joy to behold.

    Wrestler Silver King dies during Camden Roundhouse bout

    "A professional wrestler and actor has died after collapsing during a bout in London.

    Cesar Barron, known as Silver King, was a star in his native Mexico and appeared alongside the comic actor Jack Black in the 2005 film Nacho Libre.

    The 51-year-old was performing at the Roundhouse in Camden when he reportedly fell to the canvas".
    My username has nothing to do with the player of liverpool fc, it is a reference to an Italian novel.

    Loved it. The main event matches were excellent. A lot of different styles on display, and the different styles will probably be what we get out of the company on the regular.

    Ospreay is on a hell of a run.

    Picking an Ospreay-Naito final in the G1, with Naito going over.

    Ibushi will have his time but they haven't told the story yet.
