The biggest wrestling event of the summer is coming up quick, and WWE has done an effective job of promoting exactly two matches. Not bad! Its a good thing they decided to leave Sting off the show, because you dont want to make SummerSlam seem like a more important show than Battleground. So what did we learn this week in wrestling? Well, we saw that a guy from moderately popular comic book show can easily take down a trained wrestler. Ric Flair told us he'd be thrilled if John Cena broke his record for most title reigns...which makes exactly one person who would be thrilled. And Global Force Wrestling declared war on TNA wrestling. That's like a cousin you've never heard of showing up at your family reunion, and threatening to beat up your dead grandpa. In this weeks edition of Why Do the Announcers Still Have Their Jobs? Byron Saxton, Michael Cole and JBL all failed to mention at any point that Mark Henry vs. Rusev was a direct re-match from last week. They also feigned disgust that Summer Rae attacked Lana from behindkind of how like Lana did that exact same multiple times to Summer already. But lets not waste anymore time. We've got a lot to get through, so let's call up Shawn and Marty and Rocker Drop our way through WWE and TNA's worst of the week!
As Rust Cohle from True Detective said "Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you're good at."
Sadly, I can't solve a murder like Rust...or change a tire, or even tie a tie. But I do know all the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme song and can easily name every Natural Born Thriller from the dying days of WCW. I was once ranked 21st in the United States in Tetris...on the Playstation 3 version...for about a week.
