Greg Oliver's books are all great. My favourite is the one on Tag-Teams. :)

Also can't recommend Blood Red Turns Dollar Green enough. As far as works of literature go, probably not going to top ten any "Greatest of"-lists. But as far as fictional novels about pro wrestling, it's definitely #1. It follows the story of a promoter and his driver through a turbulent decade of business that was the 70s. And when it gets to the end and you start to piece together just what the promoter is doing? It's a whole other level of awesome.

Anybody else watching RAW tonight? I have been on and off and I just saw Cody Rhodes lose a match to Orton and then HHH came out and fired Cody :smt102 I am sure that it is total angle driven firing but is there some reason why Cody would need to be taking time off right now? Seemed like he was on the cusp of having a really nice face run and with Cena and Sheamus on the shelf Punk and Bryan seem to be the only other faces getting any time right now.

seems weird unless they are giving him time off for the honeymoom, but I got a bad feeling he is coming back as a goldust variant or something, hope not

On another note, I understand Big Show has been around a while, and there is only so much to do with him, but this 6 months of angry i don't give a crap monster followed by 6 months of crying spineless idiot that have him doing all the time is getting old, at least keep him in character (whatever character longer than 6 months)

Cody's getting married to his incredibly hot wife IRL and is taking a few weeks of for the honeymoon

His post firing promo was money. I'd love a Rhodes vs McMahons storyline

Agreed, everything he has been doing has been awful this past couple weeks and it doesn't make sense . Escpecially considering how much he hated Daniel Bryan for taking this title from him in 45 seconds. I kept expecting that to play into everything last night and have Show obliterate Bryan and give that reason as to why.

Seems like taking him out with an injury angle would have been better than firing him. I mean if he is only gonna be gone for a couple weeks who is going to bring him back into the company? There is anyone else with the power to to so right now with all the McMahons united like this. I would love to see Dusty and Dustin come back to join Cody against the McMahons, that could be awesome.

The only McMahon not accounted for is Shane who is out of the company of course, I don't think Linda will do anything with her political aspirations

The only thing I can see is the board naming someone (Ric Flair or even better Stone Cold)

Or like I said earlier Cody coming back in a disguise

His dad did the come-back-in-a-mask gimmick at least once, that could be fun. Of course, Cody's physique is pretty unique, so it wouldn't work at all, not that it stopped Andre or Hulk. Just sayin'.

Previously on ROH on SBG: Team ROH bested SCUM in Steel Cage Warfare, ending their reign of terror for good. However it wasn't without consequences, as Jay Briscoe was injured and put out of action forcing Nigel McGuinness to vacated the ROH World Championship for the first time in its existence.

Brian Fury vs. Todd Hansen vs. Kongo vs. Vinny Marsiglia - ROH TV Championship Proving Grounds Match. Winner gets a shot at Matt Taven. Hansen and Kongo are immediately interesting and provide stark contrasts to what you normally get in ROH. Hansen is of the Bruiser Brody/Stan Hansen-variety while Kongo brings to mind Abdullah the Butcher or Kimala. I would even say pair them up as a team and let them run roughshod for a couple of years over the tag division. Anyway, decent match here. I pegged Vinny for the win, but it's Fury who ends up taking the bout. He'll fight Matt Taven next week. Rating: **

C&C Wrestling Factory (Cedric Alexander/Caprice Coleman) vs. #PartyBoyz (Mike Sydal/Zizou Middoux). I like the Party Boyz as the jobber team. Kevin Kelly makes a big deal about how C&C just need one, true pure championship match with no distractions to win the titles. Literally no clue what that means, but they've been beaten by just about every champion team in the promotion for the past year or so. Another decent match with the Factory going over. Rating: **

Inside ROH, Steve Corino shows up. He says he wants to get back to commentary as he is contracted to do. Well there's go the importance of that stipulation. The C&C Wrestling Factory say the same stuff Kevin Kelly did on commentary earlier about wanting a true, pure title match. What the hell does that even mean? Finally, Adam Cole assures everyone that he is on the up and up with honor and stuff. I can't wait until he wins the ROH Championship.

Sonjay Dutt vs. Jay Lethal - ROH World Championship Tournament Match. These two have a storied history elsewhere. It's interesting because these are two guys who actually benefitted and grew, character-wise, in TNA and have now taken multiple steps backwards. Battle of the NO PERSONALITIES. Regardless, they're good workers and that benefits this match immensely. The beginning and middle portions are slower, building to quite the crescendo for the finish. Not surprisingly, Jay Lethal wins to advance with the Lethal Injection. Rating: ***

Match of the Show: Sonjay Dutt vs. Jay Lethal

Regarding Ratings:
0 - Horrible and avoid.
* - Not good.
** - Decent.
*** - Good.
**** - Really good.
***** - Amazing.

I don't do quarter or half stars.


#PartyBoyz must be sooo cool! Being totally fictitious but they could be someone I’d love to hate. :-D
