    Pats won 18 in a row to lose in the final game? You hate to see it. Photo via USA Today FTW It's Twitter Request Line time, everyone! I take to Twitter to get questions about issues in wrestling, past and present, and answer them on here because 280 characters can't restrain me, fool! If you don't know already, follow me @tholzerman, and wait for the call on Wednesday to ask your questions. Hash-tag your questions #TweetBag, and look for the bag to drop Thursday afternoon (most of the time). Without further ado, here are your questions and my answers: What are your top five most impressive win streaks across any sport? — BIG CRAIG SCOOPZ (@CraigWatchesHD) March 11, 20201. New England Patriots 18-game winning streak: The Dolphins went 17-0 when half the league consisted of milkmen and garbage collectors. Even though they didn't win that illustrious 19th game, thanks to a miraculous, non-repeatable catch after a dropped pick six, winning 18 games in a row in the modern NFL is HARD. 2. Oklahoma Sooners 47-game winning streak: Sure, this streak ended up happening when most football players in college were future mailmen and truck drivers, but 47 games spanning five seasons is, in a word, insane. How many teams can go back-to-back undefeated in any era? Oklahoma didn't lose for four seasons. That's nuts. 3. Philadelphia Flyers 35-game unbeaten streak: Now, in hockey before they added the shootout, ties were prevalent. A tie isn't a win, but it's also not a loss. There's so much variance in hockey that going 35 games without a loss is goddamn impressive, no matter how many ties were scattered in there. 4. Los Angeles Lakers 33-game winning streak: In basketball, it's a lot easier to create a superteam, and when the Lakers amassed a roster that made everyone else's look like a piece of shit, it was no wonder they'd be the best team in the league. But 33 games? That's a lot. 5. Michael Phelps' 10-year winning streak in the butterfly - There have been some dominant Olympic athletes over the years. Aleksandr Karelin in wrestling, Usain Bolt and Jackie Joyner-Kersee in running, but not losing a match for an entire DECADE, even when you've got a tireless work ethic with the appetite to match like Phelps, is inhuman. Hi Andrew Rosin Forever, first time long time. What are the odds that Vince and WWE turn the coronavirus into some gimmick in the lead-up to Mania? I'll hand up and listen, God bless. — The REAL hotsprotstakes.com (@HotSprots) March 11, 2020If it were 1998, McMahon, with the aid of his even dumber consigliere Vince Russo, would have already given Beaver Cleavage a reboot into Patient Zero. Now? His basest desires have been reined in by stockholders. I'm not sure if that means there won't be a coronavirus angle, especially if Mania gets postponed. I'm just saying it's no longer the slam dunk it would've been in the pre-corporate era. how will we break the backs of the ruling class such that the workers can control the country — #1 james tiberius kirk fan (@philatticus) March 11, 2020I got two words for ya, and they ain't "suck it." Direct action. Unless somehow voter suppression disappears into the aether and Bernie Sanders gets all the votes that were intended to him, the country is headed for a milquetoast centrist who has barely shown any will to move to the left taking on the racist game show host. I feel like the only way to prevent it is for the workers of the country to unite and grind society to a halt. That won't happen easily because of how many workers are brainwashed to believe right wing talking points. That being said, if the people can rise up in Libya and Chile and France, they can rise up here. Favorite song written in the 50s or earlier? — Thomas SinCara (@beenthrifty) March 11, 2020 Book an empty arena Wrestlemania. #Tweetbag — boxwatcher (@boxwatcher) March 11, 2020The matches would all probably be the same, to be honest. That being said, with all the studio space available and no live fans there needing to see the action, I would take the opportunity to send action all around the arena: bathrooms, luxury boxes, boiler rooms. Anywhere fit for human occupancy in the arena would be game. Maybe the Brock Lesnar and Bill Goldberg matches would stay in the ring area because of how short they're going to be. However, wouldn't it make sense for Edge to want to take a pound of flesh from Randy Orton somewhere other than the ring or for The Fiend to want to make John Cena fight him on his terms in his comfort zones? The possibilities would be endless. which wrestling promotion will be the first to include Coronavirus in a storyline. — Onlyfans.com/Covid19 (@RickNashtag) March 11, 2020I for one am SHOCKED that Game Changer Wrestling hasn't incorporated it yet into someone's character. It feels like they have the right combination of intentional tone-deafness as well as the people who could pull it off so that you forget it's tone deaf. Other than them, maybe Dramatic Dream Team does it, because nothing's off limits there and they treat all the things they make fun of with care. One thing's for certain; like above, I doubt WWE or All Elite Wrestling do it. Maybe WWE would be more likely than AEW, but still, I doubt the shareholders go for it. if you could go to one of the innumerable indie shows surrounding WM weekend, which would it be? (ie. EFFY's Big Gay Brunch, WRESTLEVANIA, Grey Sweatpants Battle Royal, etc etc etc) — n dot reed (@ndotreed) March 11, 2020Of the shows that have existed before, obviously Bloodsport is the choice. While neither of the Josh Barnett shows have come close to matching the juice level of the Matt Riddle one, and while the slavish devotion to telling you who their influences are is boring, honestly, there are at least two lights-out matches that scratch a different itch than most other wrestling. The one that hasn't existed before that I'm looking forward to is WrestleVania. Honestly, I just wanna see someone get sacrificed to Satan. Which toys from your youth do you wish you still had? — Archbishop of Bacon (@cursethedark) March 11, 2020He-Man toys were cool because there were a whole lot of unique designs with a buttload of weapons. I'd love for my son to have them too, but my mom got rid of them when we all got holder. Sometimes, when you have a cartoon that is just there to sell toys, the toys were incredibly on point. It's not the same today. Then again, I'll take a show like Steven Universe that exists to tell a story but that doesn't have the best toys, y'know? Randy Orton told Beth Phoenix he loves Edge more than she ever could, and he even thinks he and Edge would do a better job raising children together than she and Edge have. Where does this rank in the majestic pantheon of wrestlers-who-love-each-other feuds? — Rowan Fresh (@RowanFresh) March 11, 2020In theory, that sounds badass, but it's Randy Orton. He's the most disingenuous person to live. Do you really think he meant that, or was he just trying to troll Phoenix and Edge? Rated RKO didn't even last that long! It doesn't come close to the Golden Lovers, and even they're probably not in the upper echelon given how little Kota Ibushi seems to care about them. I just bought some Rold Gold mini pretzel twists with cheddar dust. The kids vote no. What are the best and worst hybrid snack innovations of the last 25 years? #TweetBag — Star of Savage (@StarOfSavage) March 11, 2020 The worst snack ideas always come from Japan, where the desire to make things like Mountain Dew-flavored Doritos or Sweet Potato and Green Tea Kit Kats overrides the responsibility of whether or not they should make them. The best snack combos are those snack packs where there's some dried fruit, nuts, and cheese all in the same pack. They're a little bit healthier than the normal snack, but they're a good taste combo. Would you rather see WrestleMania continue with no one in the crowd or just be scrapped altogether due to COVID19 concerns? — Panther! (@DestiGeddon) March 11, 2020 Protected user @earthdog asks: Should the WWE cancel WM or hold it in an empty arena?These two are kinda the same question. Roman Reigns, one-half of one of the prohibitive main events of the show, is a year removed from his cancer going into remission. When you have cancer, you're already immunocompromised, whether or not you take chemotherapy. Of course it's worse after taking chemo, but there's always the chance that even a year after, his leukemia might make enough of a comeback that if he catches something as aggressive as the coronavirus, he could die. Honestly, while preventable deaths have never stopped Vince McMahon from continuing his planned events, maybe they should. I'm not sure I'd want Joseph Anoa'i's life on my hands when I've already got Owen Hart's blood on them without being able to scrub it off. Postpone the show. Have it when the pandemic cools down. No one is gonna care, at least no one whose opinion is worth a damn will. You get to give one sports franchise a cosmetic makeover (unis, colors, etc.) What do you do? — Matt Spaulding (@MattSpaulding22) March 11, 2020The Landover Racial Slurs have been affront to sports since their inception. While it's not surprising that a team originally based out of Boston would have a racist-as-hell team name, that should have changed maybe when they moved to the capital. All Native American imagery is racist as hell, but the Cleveland and Atlanta baseball teams and the Chicago hockey team don't use the Native equivalent to the n-word as their nicknames. You don't need to change the color scheme. You just need to change the nickname and the mascot. The Washington Red Tails would pay tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen who helped win the last just war the world has ever seen. That name would go from racist to actively celebrating another group of historically downtrodden American people. The Washington Red Pandas would have internet meme cred from jump, and who wouldn't want a red panda as a mascot. Those are two exccellent choices to scrub the stain that the current nickname is leaving on the league and the country. Any food Network tournament of champions thoughts? — muppetviolenceconection (@baollisque) March 12, 2020I haven't watched much Food Network lately, and honestly, a Tournament of Champions featuring the current slate of stars on Chopped and other shows feels... unappealing. Guy Fieri really is the only person on that network who is worth a damn, and he's the host. Granted, all of them make really good looking food, but it's like, do I really want to watch a show where I have to choose between Geoffrey Zakarian, Scott Conant, or Alex Guarnaschelli to win? Not a chance. What will Charlotte Flair look like in 5 years? — 95Sports (@95Sports) March 12, 2020In five years? She'll look the same. Now, in ten or 15 years, she might start to turn from your hot aunt to your aunt who should've hung it up a few years prior. Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you. Missy Hyatt turned into the latter and she's still pretty good looking and besides any aesthetic point, still pretty sharp when it comes to the biz. Flair will be fine.

    It's not so nice when it's done to you now, is it? Screenshot from AEW YouTube Novel COVID-19 virus has, in the last 15 hours, caused the National Basketball Association, Formula One racing, the National Hockey League, and several collegiate leagues to suspend operations. All Elite Wrestling has already postponed next week's episode of Dynamite until June. The state of Florida has called for a ban on large gatherings for 30 days, putting WrestleMania and all the satellite events around it in danger of being cancelled. There's a good chance last night's episode of Dynamite could be the last live wrestling event for a few weeks. Savor it with this review. Don't Turn Your Back on the Wolfpack - Jon Moxley is not in The Elite, and neither is Darby Allin. Even though there was MASS CHAOS last week between the Inner Circle and The Elite, it felt like Mox and Allin were the two focal points. As it turns out, the audience was supposed to focus on the brawl before the main event, as on Saturday, AEW announced the Inner Circle would be taking on The Elite in WarGames The Match Beyond Blood and Guts. It felt odd to pull the trigger on announcing it the way it did, but also, if coronavirus doesn't cancel the show, it's happening in fewer than a fortnight. As it turns out, putting a detente on the festivities between the two major factions in the company to focus more on Allin and Moxley through Revolution and last week might have been a mistake in planning. No matter what, the true animus in the match probably won't be between the Circle and the Elite, even though the founders and vice presidents will have big receipts to give to Chris Jericho and his goons. The growing tension between Hangman Page and Matt Jackson probably will boil over inside the SOLID STEEL CAGE. Last week, Page made the save for Jackson and flipped him off afterwards. Their relationship had been deteriorating for awhile, one of the best stories going in the company. That animus may have been created when Matt and Nick both lorded their influence getting Page his spot over him. True or not, I'm not sure it's something you bring up without expecting resentment. Page's hurt feelings spilled over when it came time to choose his partner for his main event tag match last night. It's strange that he rejected Matt outright and gave feelers to Nick, but again, it was Matt he spit at during their match at Revolution. Matt has always been the testier Buck, even going back to their feud with the Golden Lovers in New Japan. The end-of-show brawl showed that Matt could be the bigger man. In a slight repeat of last week's brawl, where everyone came out in staggered intervals to get wiped out by the Inner Circle until Page turned the tide, several wrestlers who weren't supposed to be there because they accompanied Nick to the hospital after the IC dropped a garage door on him filed out from the back to get mowed down. This time, the Circle was about to Shield Bomb Page off the stage like they did Mox last week, Matt came out to save the day, all while returning the middle-fingered favor to Page from last week. You might think that one good turn deserves another and that they're cool now. They cared enough about each other to make the save for each other. I don't think the other shoe has dropped yet. I don't think the Civil War will affect the entire group. Omega, Cody, and Dustin Rhodes don't seem to be caught up in the fighting. Omega is trying to please two masters right now, sure, but he's for peace. There seems like there will be casualties here, and the first strike will be inside the cage. As for the matches, the opener between Cody and Ortiz was, in a word, hilarious, but not like a good Kikutaro or Orange Cassidy match. Selling a body part is not a mandatory part of a good wrestling match, but when you commit to the bit and then abandon it when you make your comeback. Cody's come a long way in the ring since his dire initial run on the indies, but a misplaced worship of his father's work with Will Ospreay's understanding of how long-term selling works feels like a bad combination. Ortiz's outsized personality saved the match. Also, Jake Roberts' client was revealed as Lance Archer during this match, and I thought though muted in actual introduction, the groundwork was laid well. Archer is in his 40s, so getting as much out of him as you can right off the bat is a good move, and putting him with Roberts combines the former's raw sadistic strength with the latter's devious cunning. The main event was much better, which is what happens when you have four guys in the ring who are, y'know, good. A lot of people have Page pegged as AEW's Roman Reigns with Mox as the Steve Austin, but the more I think about it, Page is more Austin than anything, while Mox is just, well, Mox, or the promise of Dean Ambrose's potential when he came out of Florida Championship Wrestling. Page is cantankerous, loves to drink beer, and is in better position to smash authority than Mox, who's just fighting the top heel. Page going rogue against The Elite would be more analogous to fighting the people in charge anyway. I'm not sure that's the route they go, but it's certainly tantalizing. Starting to Think Kenny Doesn't Know What He's Doing - The women's division has been an Achilles heel for AEW since its beginning, and there's only so much of it you can blame on Kylie Rae's departure from the company. Case in point, the tag match pitting Kris Statlander and Hikaru Shida against Nyla Rose and Bea Priestley. Shida is the number one contender, and to wit, she has a boss Tron where she looks like someone out of a Daft Punk video and carries a sword to the ring. I don't really know anything about her character though. What does she do other than wrestle? Where's the hook? She doesn't even get to talk or at least have a second to talk for her. And even worse, she ate the pin in the match, which at worst is antithetical to why you have contenders facing off against their champions in a tag match and at best showing you don't know what the fuck your ranking system is for. Ideally, Priestley, who's rarely ever around and really doesn't have a whole lot of juice in the company, would've taken the pin. Statlander would've been good too if you really wanted to put Rose over since her star was dimmed after Revolution. Having Rose pin Shida clean in a non-title match though throws into question what kind of vision Omega has for the division. From putting the title on Riho when she wasn't going to be around and didn't even have the cache of other part-time titleholders in other companies, his decision-making has been questionable overall at best. Why do the men have good stories to lean on and women are just sideshows that feel tacked on for equity points? If you can't at least try to outdo what WWE does with its women's division, you're defeating your own purpose for existence. Of course, after the match, Priestley, who I imagine has protection because she's a big deal in STARDOM, laid out Rose. It all feels so "I have to be the coolest and smartest person in the room" the way Ospreay is booked at all times, and it doesn't feel natural. But then again... The Dark Order Sucks - AEW was going to reveal the Exalted One next week before the show was postponed, and if I wasn't so sure that they threw a bunch of money at Matt Hardy, the Christopher Daniels would be a prime candidate for the swerve under a "methinks he doth protest too much" corollary. So what if he beat up a bunch of goons at Revolution? The Exalted One doesn't seem like a person who wouldn't lay hands on his subordinates to keep them in line. That being said, I guess the audience will have to wait until COVID-19 blows over to find out the identity. Daniels feels like he'd be Vince McMahon-as-the-Higher Power levels of disappointing anyway, and I doubt Hardy's no-compete is up so soon. I wonder if Brodie Lee is the leader of the Dark Order... MJF the Coward - MJF is one of the best heels going today, but not for the reasons people think he is. His promos, while delivered well, all kinda suck given that he can't stop mining cheap heat or replying to people line-by-line like he's an e-fedder. The evidence why he's so effective can be found in his matches. Take for example the trios match with him and Butcher and the Blade going up against the Jurassic Express. Things like his facial expressions, how he corners guys like Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt, and the way he begs off Luchasaurus show that he's probably more ahead in-ring on how to get heat than he is where people praise him. The match overall was solid but none of the hot tags were all that hot. Honestly, only Hangman Page and Joey Janela have had good fire behind their tag-in comebacks, and for a company that is behind pushing the tag team division, they should probably fix that. They've already had the Rock n Roll Express on the show. Let them run a seminar. MY HUSBAND DRIVES A DODGE STRATUS - Honestly, I didn't expect Big Swole to make Cedric Alexander an accidental Wife Guy, but AEW is always full of surprises. The Britt Baker, Sarcastic Dentist experiment drew out Swole after Baker ran down everything but Rudy Gobert becoming the NBA's coronavirus Patient Zero. I'm sure if that news broke before her segment, she would have. However many heels use cheap heat on the roster is too much. Maybe I'm just jaded because MJF absolutely doesn't have to when he does. I don't know. Still, Baker's rapport with Tony Schiavone is becoming one of the best parts of the show, probably because he's so hapless in their encounters yet he doesn't stoop to the level of simping for her. Either way, I am skeptical that the payoff match between the two will be good because nothing Baker has touched in the ring has been good yet, and I'm also not entirely sure making the feud a proxy Adam Cole vs. Cedric Alexander one in another company is a good idea either. That being said, watching Swole tee off on Baker on the mic was a spectacle, and I do love me a good spectacle. Death Triangle Stranding - The trios match between the Death Triangle and the makeshift team of Janela and Private Party was, as one might expect, a good time. It had everything: Rey Feníx doing Rey Feníx things, Janela going nuts on hot tags, the visually impressive double team moves of Private Party, PAC being a miserable bastard, Pentagón being himself. The match highlights AEW's roster building problem. They signed Janela off the fame of him being a gonzo entrepreneurial type, and his reward was a milquetoast feud with Shawn Spears and a short spat with his ex-girlfriend's companion. Private Party beat the Young Bucks and went nowhere, which honestly calls into question what a win over the Bucks really means. It's true AEW only has two hours a week to get shit moving, and I'm not sure putting Death Triangle against the Librarians and Brandon Cutler would have the same effect. That being said, you go to great lengths to have these guys on your roster, right? Why not have a deeper midcard jobber-to-the-stars bench? You gotta have that to move forward so you don't waste the star power of your talented roster. Maybe the brass only sees those three wrestlers in that role, which would then call into question their talent evaluation acumen.

    Was Nemeth right not to name names? Perhaps. Photo via @HotYoungBriley Wrestling has had a problem with creeps for as long as it's been around. It's what happens when you run a business based on attracting the most toxically masculine personalities to preen for the affections of the crowd. Whether or not those creeps have kept fans away from the arena has only come up when wrestlers' transgressions have come to light, and they haven't started to come to light until at the latest the Attitude Era. Still, when Steve Austin was arrested for abusing his then-spouse, WWE did jack and shit to deal with it. Nowadays, WWE doesn't seem to have that kind of problematic wrestler on the roster. I think it's just they're much much better at hiding those kinds of things. I mean, Randy Orton is still on the roster despite numerous stories of backstage malfeasance being written on him, but none have anything to corroborate outside of him deserting the army. Honestly, that's the most badass thing about him, but I digress. Indie wrestling has no such structure to keep the stories from leaking. While the promoters who book problematic wrestlers have a sort of omerta regarding the accusations, they can't keep things like Teddy Hart's girlfriend going mysteriously missing in the middle of several other charges of human trafficking and animal abuse from coming to light. Wrestlers like Hart, Michael Elgin, Rich Swann, and Thomas Latimer keep facing these accusations. They're not enough to keep them from getting bookings, as Elgin and Swann are both in Impact under the direction of another accused abuser in Sami Callihan, and no one seems to care that Latimer keeps working for NWA Power. Of course, just because they're not outed doesn't mean other wrestlers aren't also abusers and/or rapists and/or Nazis (can't forget SHLAK). There have been whispers of wrestlers being scum that only float to the surface when people make vague threats like this from Ryan Nemeth, known as Briley Pierce in NXT before his release: Happy #InternationalWomensDay to piece of shit rapey indie wrestler dudes who pretend to be woke feminist heroes and the idiots who still buy their merch / work with them — Ryan Nemeth (@HotYoungBriley) March 8, 2020Two different reaction to these tweets are common. The first is people urging him to "name names" in the replies. The second is shadowy replies from self-proclaimed wrestling insiders saying they know who people like Nemeth were talking about and that it would shock people to know who and yadda yadda. I'm not concerned with the second group. The first group, however, seems to have a point on the surface. When there are abusers in an industry that has a sizable fanbase, you would want to know who they are. How am I supposed to know with whom I'm not supposed to work if the names are never named? The cloak of secrecy is frustrating, and I can only imagine how bad it is for people who are in the target demographic for abuse, or who have been abused and don't want to give money to people who might trigger flashbacks. You would think that holding the names back is a narcissistic play for clout. However, there's a good reason not to name names. If the victims of abuse or rape have not escaped the orbit of their attackers, they are in more danger for retaliatory action. The mind of the abuser tends towards defensive withdrawing, blaming the victim for the heat put upon them. To out them without knowing if the victim is in a safe place away from their abuser would be, in a word, irresponsible. How does one know when the victim is in the clear? They'd probably have to be close to them, and knowing that is tricky if you're on the outside. So is Nemeth doing it for the clout, or is he close to a victim and is just asking fans to look more closely at wrestlers' presences online and at shows? It's up to him to say, I suppose. Either way, it's not entirely bad practice to let people know that there are abusers in the community. It's not like there aren't warning signs. Go to someone you trust who might be able to do something. Don't go to the police; their track record in mitigating situations involving rape and abuse is abysmal for the most part. But if you feel uneasy taking action to take care of the abuser, you might as well be better off not saying anything while taking measures to protect the abused. If you do want to take action, see if you can shelter the victim in your home or any other secure place you have disposal of. The victim's safety is of utmost importance. Maybe it's not on Nemeth to name names in that light, or anyone else. How society treats victims, especially female, trans, and otherwise vulnerable victims, is lacking to the point where publicly pointing out transgressors might cause more damage than good. I'm not saying don't do anything; just be smart and sensitive about it.
