    The GOAT game show and host Photo Credit: Jeopardy.com 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 five favorite game shows of all time and why? Don’t worry about what’s objectively the best, just what you personally enjoy. #TweetBag — Star of Savage (@StarOfSavage) September 18, 20191. Jeopardy - I was smart, and Jeopardy was a show where smart people were the contestants. What else could you want? (Get well soon, Alex Trebek) 2. Double Dare - Kinda like Jeopardy but with a lot more slime. Plus, Harvey the PA guy was a DJ on WMGK in Philly. 3. Wheel of Fortune - It's fun to yell at people overthinking solving a puzzle, way more fun than you'd think. 4. Guy's Grocery Games - It's got the edge over Chopped because Guy Fieri is affable and the judges aren't throbbing penises, and that's even with overlap between the shows! 5. American Gladiators - It was enough like pro wrestling for me to like it and just different enough to have a hook. Any thoughts on the SNL fiasco happening right now? Obviously Gillis shouldn't have said what he did, but what do you think SNL's culpability is for either not vetting or vetting and making a choice to court a different audience only to have it blow up and then try to back away? — John Rosenberger (@JohnJohnPhenom) September 18, 2019Saturday Night Live saying they wanted to cater to a "conservative audience" is pretty rich given the show had Donald Trump host in the midst of his primary campaign for the Republican nomination to be President and they caved HARD when Dan Crenshaw whined and cried about them lampooning him on the show. But pretending those things didn't happen, I'm not sure why SNL should've been in the market for anyone but whom they've been hiring over the years. Comedy done in service of conservatism is only funny if you like seeing the powerful punch down at marginalized folks. Asian people already have it rough enough over here without dude pretending to be one and badly. What this Shane Gillis thing shows is that SNL doesn't give a fuck. Just because they haven't had to vet their cast before now doesn't mean they shouldn't have done it for everyone from Chevy Chase and Bill Murray down to all the way down to Gillis. It's not only morally right, but unfortunately, the biggest reason to do it is so you don't lose sponsorship money. If you're going to push the boundaries, why not hire a leftist comedian? I guess Barack Obama wouldn't return their calls in that case, but hey, you can't win 'em all. Extended feelings/thoughts on tanking in football — AD (João Félix fan act

    Did Suzuki make a mistake by removing Liger's mask? Photo Credit: NJPW1972.com Minoru Suzuki is one of the most feared men in wrestling, not just New Japan Pro Wrestling, but all of the industry. He acts like his reputation allows, attacking his targets at will, bending the rules, assaulting referees, intentionally disqualifying himself to make a point. Whether he's in the right or the wrong morally, he knows that in what he can get away with, he's untouchable because might equals right in the lawless jungle that is pro wrestling. While he doesn't conquer every challenge put in front of him, like his failed IWGP World Championship attempt at Kazuchika Okada in England, nothing in his path is something he necessarily feels the need to fear. However, should he act like he has impunity? He may have no reason to fear his latest feud partner, fellow old man wrestler Jushin "Thunder" Liger in his normal form. However, at Monday's Destruction in Kagoshima show, Suzuki may have bitten off more than he could chew. In an eight-man tag match where he teamed with fellow Suzuki-gun members Zack Sabre, Jr, DOUKI, and Yoshinobu Kanemaru against Liger, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Togi Makabe, and Tomoaki Honma, he tempted fate. He removed Liger's mask. While it seemed like he had the last laugh, sitting besmirked with Liger's iconic mask in his hand while the soon-to-be-retired legend of the ring crawled away, flanked by Young Lions and towel over his head, he might have sealed his own destruction. Liger has a rarely-appearing alter-ego that comes out when his mask or hair are damaged or removed. Kishin Liger, with a face painted like he was a member of a black metal band and armed with the poison mist of the first person who dared cross him, Keiji Mutoh, is a far more violent incarnation of the legendary wrestler. You would think that Suzuki would have learned, because the last time Kishin came out, it was at the goading from members of his stable, Taichi and TAKA Michinoku to be specific. Taichi is still around. Michinoku hasn't left as much as he's nursing an injury. You'd think they'd have strenuously urged their boss not to cross Liger with extreme measures. Yet here they are, ready for a hellish demon to come for them. The action ensures that the eventual match between Liger and Suzuki will be violent, potentially bloody, and most likely cathartic. Whether it happens at King of Pro Wrestling in October or if they delay it out to the Tokyo Dome on January 4 and 5, it will not be for the faint of heart. To be honest though, it should happen sooner rather than at WrestleKingdom. I don't think Liger wants to go out as Kishin. Jushin is how he should retire against someone on friendlier terms, meaning the bloodbath might happen at King of Pro Wrestling, the same show that'll also have Okada defending the title against SANADA. All in all, New Japan is fixing to have a hot end of the year.

    Banks should be able to wrestle without someone touching her, but the problem is deeper than wrestling Photo Credit: WWE.com In case you missed it, and judging by the declining number of subs for the WWE Network, you may have, Sasha Banks was accosted, or at least attempted to be accosted by a fan at Clash of Champions. As she and Becky Lynch brawled in the crowd, Lynch threw her back into the ringside area over the barricade. As Banks flew over the guard barrier, a male fan reached over and attempted to touch her butt. Content warning, I'm going to post the video, so if you have bad memories of people trying to touch or successfully touching you, I wouldn't play it: Every couple of months, you have to remind the fans at-large that they're not supposed to touch the wrestlers or verbally abuse them. It happened in Mexico with Scarlett Bordeaux getting unwantedly hugged by an overzealous AAA fan, and it almost happened again here. The common thread was that in both cases, it was a dude trying to get sexual thrills by violating a female wrestler's personal space and body autonomy. Women, people in general, only want to be touched in a sexual manner when they consent to it. They can't consent to a fan putting their grubby hands on them in the heat of the moment when they, the wrestler, have their attention placed on the match they're trying to work. The attitude is not limited to wrestling fans. Ask a woman, any woman, and odds are they've been on the receiving end of an unwanted grope, someone touching their body that took the woman by surprise and without her consent. It happens in schools, locker rooms, transit systems, even out in the open. People who don't respect boundaries are everywhere, and it's ingrained in their minds that they're in the right. They're not assaulting someone. They're taught that it's just them "shooting their shot." The best example of something in popular culture condoning this behavior is in Billy Madison. The kids dare Billy, played by Adam Sandler, to touch Veronica Vaughn's boobs (Vaughn played by Bridgette Wilson). He first remarks "That's assault, brotha" before agreeing to do it if he was "double-dog dared." He followed through, and Vaughn seemed to play it off with no real repercussions to Billy (the two ended up together at the end of the movie). So, if everyone says it's okay to sexually harass a person minding their own business or doing their job, why should anyone, the person in the video or otherwise, do anything else? Whether you believe it or not, the established code of conduct rewards creeps under the guise of being bold or "shooting their shot." If they can do so to a random woman on the street, the next level up is to try it with a celebrity to see if it works. Thus you have the fan in Mexico trying to take Bordeaux home with her and the guy from Sunday trying to touch Banks' behind. It can seem futile to shout #MeToo to the wrestling industry when people seem not to want to address it in real life. For example, supposed opposition leaders who theoretically care for women are opposed to making someone accused of sexual misconduct face some kind of consequence for it. No one with power cares about people, and the only way to change that is to fight to get people in power who do. Until then, the best thing to do is to keep ostracizing creeps like the guy from Sunday night. He shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a live wrestling show, and Banks is apparently going to sue him. It's not much in this world where the underdogs are marginalized people and their opponents are favored by a billion points. But it's a start.

    MDK BABY Graphics via ChikaraPro.com The sixteenth team for King of Trios has been announced. I speculated that it might be the Proteus Wheel or a Whisper-led counter-Crucible team, and hoped that it might be the Minnesota Wrecking Zoo. The trio that was announced, however, was so much different, and to be honest, so, so, SO much better. Nick Gage will make his King of Trios debut, leading his Nerder Death Kill tag partner Thomas Santell and fellow Beyond Wrestling Uncharted Territory stalwart Kris Statlander into battle. Santell is no stranger to Chikara, competing under his prior alias, Antonio "The Promise" Thomas. He drank some Ovaltine, found a sweater, and is now wholesome and also more technically grounded. Statlander has become one of the hottest properties in indie wrestling in addition to being perhaps the best unsigned wrestler out there. One can question how long she will remain unsigned at this rate, but the longer the big companies hold out, the better it is for indie fans. Gage, however, is the main event. He's not a stranger to Chikara at all, which is a hilarious thing to say. His dalliances had been confined to wrestling for Beyond Wrestling's partisans during the two promotions' feud last year. He left with unfinished business, as at Cibernetico last year, he cut the tail off the Proletariat Boar of Moldova. That business will probably stay unfinished, since Boar has been estranged from Chikara over the last year. Pity, I loved the Boar. Anyway, regardless of how shocking it is or not, it's still an incredible pairing. Gage has lost little of his steam since coming back from his second stint in jail (which was for bullshit, by the way), which is pretty rare. One more bit of news, last week, I mentioned that Boomer Hatfield would be pulling double duty at Trios. That statement was factually incorrect. When Boomer entered Trios with father Dasher and cousin Molly McCoy, he forfeited his slot in Rey de Voladores. That takes a little more drama out of his weekend, but Chikara does what Chikara does, and it'll probably turn out okay. Alex Zayne and Cajun Crawdad, however, will still compete in the eight-wrestler mini-tournament that will take place over the second and third nights of action. The third night of the tournament also has a ten-team tag team gauntlet, and the first two pairs have been announced, and neither are surprising. The first two in are Los Ice Creams. The Chikara staples will look to win their second tag gauntlet; they won at the infamous English Trios in 2017. The second team are former Campeones de Parejas, the Closers. Rick Roland and Sloan Caprice will look to get on the fast track to getting those titles back by winning the gauntlet and taking the points at stake. Each win is worth a point, so theoretically, a team that starts out can get nine points if they run the table. Team MDK completes the slate for Trios this year. The other 15 teams can be found right here: Team Pump (Scott Steiner, Jordynne Grace, Petey Williams) The Ancient Order of Nations (Mick Moretti, Adam Hoffman, Jack Bonza) The Carnies (Kerry Awful, Nick Iggy, Tripp Cassidy) The Embassy (Prince Nana, Jimmy Rave, Sal Rinauro) The VeloCities (Mat Diamond, Jude London, Paris DeSilva) Team FIST (Icarus, Tony Deppen, Travis Huckabee) The Crucible (Ophidian, Kimber Lee, Lance Steel) The Creatures of the Deep (Oceanea, Merlok, Hermit Crab) The Colony (Fire Ant, Green Ant, Thief Ant) The Crucible II (Matt Makowski, Devantes, EM DeMorest) Three Queens (Solo Darling, Willow Nightingale, Freddie Mercurio) The Quack Pack (Mike Quackenbush, Rob Killjoy, Lance Lude) The Nightmare Warriors (Hallowicked, Frightmare, Kobald) The Fightin' Hatfield Family (Dasher Hatfield, Boomer Hatfield, Molly McCoy) Team Juke Joint (Lucas Calhoun, Stray Kat, Missile Assault Man) King of Trios takes place in Reading, PA at the Goodwill Beneficial Association October 4-6. October 4, you will see all eight first round matches, a show packed wall-to-wall with trios action. October 5 is the big day, and a big day needs a big breakfast (not Baron Corbin). That's why King of Brunches will start first in the morning. Seating is limited, so inquire now. Later in the afternoon is Fan Conclave where you can play games and hang out with your favorite Chikara wrestlers. Then, the evening holds the second card, with four quarterfinal matches, two exciting four-way Rey de Voladores eliminators, and a battle between master and student, as BLANK battles the Young Lions Cup holder, Still Life with Apricots and Pears. Then, on October 6, you get the semifinal and final matches of Trios, the final match of Rey de Voladores, the tag gauntlet, and a few more tasty treats for your viewing pleasure.

    Banks refuted a bad dirtsheet report that you should've sniffed out as phony from the get-go Photo Credit: WWE.com Sasha Banks returned from her what is now known as a self-imposed hiatus from WWE the night after SummerSlam. While she was gone, people went on rumors and whispers thinking she was unhappy with the company. It turns out that wasn't the case, for better or worse. Even I bought the rumors to an extent. However, one of the more pernicious whispers said that she left in a hissy-fit after carrying on along with Bayley on the locker room and hotel room floors because they were booked to lose the Women's Tag Team Championships at WrestleMania. The two proponents of that report were Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin and self-styled wrestling scoopster at-large, Brad Shepard. Banks made no overtures to confirm or deny those reports until an episode of Chronicle aired on WWE Network Saturday night for the first time. Banks spoke on the supposed incident and asked for the people who reported on it to produce video or audio proof. It was an emphatic denial. Satin at the time claimed that "a few sources" told him. If I had to guess, it was Lana and Alexa Bliss who gave that info, but that's only as speculative as the reports about Banks and Bayley after their Mania loss. Now, the converse of the issue isn't that maybe Satin and Shepard were right, but that this is another case of a person with more power and influence punching down at people who aren't worth the time of day, much like when Peyton Royce rallied the troops to dump on Dave Meltzer when he said WWE pushed her to "be hotter" before she made the main roster and then commented on the change in look. Honestly, I don't see it as similar to that situation, although Meltzer's lack of awareness was bound to get him in trouble sooner rather than later. It's just a shame it was in that situation and not from when he along with Jim Ross callously accused Tomoaki Honma's partner of making up abuse allegations. In this case, Satin and ESPECIALLY Shepard have track records of targeting POC and female wrestlers for no other reason than bigotry. Satin's coverage of WWE is way more access-based than anyone except perhaps another stooge in Justin Barrasso. Also, he was one of the cavalry coming to the defense of Michael Elgin when the person he abused and that one of his students raped came looking for justice. Shepard, on the other hand, is way out of pocket on his bullshit. As far back as 2016, he went in on Kofi Kingston celebrating a milestone because he thought Kingston was playing "the race card." In recent history, he's come down hard on women's wrestling, criticizing WWE's push of it, not for reasons like "they're not serious about it" and "it feels like tokenism," but "women are inferior and boring." And what does he have to hang his hat on? Breaking the return of the XFL? A football league? He's got a worse track record than literally anyone who self-styles as a reporter. But what is the value of a wrestling report? A certain sect of Wrestling Twitter gives so much respect and credence to reporting that is only accurate when reporting on things the companies give as press releases, and better preference is given to having it first rather than having it right. It's how Shepard can use getting one non-wrestling piece of news concerning a wrestling personality to catapult himself to being a newsman who basically only uses his bully pulpit to spew grotesque sexism. Is that really what should really have value? If Shepard were right more than once every never, would his ghastly opinions be more valid? This is a question some people have to ask themselves. That's the biggest reason why Banks potentially punching down in this case might not be the worst thing. Then again, she didn't mention the people by name. Even if she did, would a dogpile on a gross misogynist like Shepard, who doubled down on bashing Banks in his response and slammed Satin for issuing an apology, be such a bad thing? The worst thing would be Banks using the media arm of a company that has done things a billion times worse than even Shepard has done, and I get that. I also like seeing gross people get what's coming to them. Maybe it's for the best that Banks didn't mention him by name. Maybe Shepard will catch a ban from Twitter or something else that he deserves. The reality is that the people running news sites and reporting on wrestling don't do a good enough job to be as transparently awful as people, but then again, how much do you have to get right to warrant the levels of putridity that someone like Shepard displays on a regular basis? How many stories do you have to break in order to get a pass for enabling an abuser and the rapist he's protecting like Satin? The real answer is nothing excuses that, but sadly, if you tell people what they want to hear in terms of "backstage gossip," those levels of accuracy can fall way lower than 100 percent. Still, the fact that they'd bite on an obviously phony-sounding story about two POC female wrestlers shows their asses a lot, and it shows the asses of everyone who bought it without question as a smear of either one of those two wrestlers.

    CazXL needs more help than he let on Photo Credit: WWE.com So yesterday, I let y'all know that CazXL/Big Cass was combative backstage at the WrestlePro show this past weekend, not just with Joey Janela, but also with Pat Buck. As it turns out, there's more to the story. Apparently, after getting knocked to the ground by Buck, Cass asked him why Buck had hit him, and it wasn't a statement of disbelief. According to reports, he didn't remember much about the incidents the next day. The short-term memory loss can be explained away with two reasons, neither of them good. Either it's a symptom of head trauma or he was under the influence. Both are likely, given that the former is a consequence of his profession, and the latter is something he admitted to needing to get under control. Either way, it shows he needs to stay away from the business for a long enough time to get his life back under his own control, ESPECIALLY if it's substance abuse. It's at that point where instead of talking to him to come back to NXT that Paul Levesque and Vince McMahon should maybe be looking into putting Cass in rehab. The more and more that comes out about Cass, the more readily apparent it is that the dude is not well. At this point, promoters and bookers who take him on their card are complicit in his downward spiral. He's gotta get out of the wrestling business, at least temporarily, and he shouldn't return until he's well. If that's in a month, a year, or never, well, that's up to him. But he has to get right. Whatever's in his envelope isn't worth the early grave. Look, I know he's not the most popular guy in wrestling, but that doesn't mean he deserves to die early. He's gotta get help, and honestly, if McMahon and Levesque don't get it to him, it's at least partially on them.

    Smoke a whole carton for a legend Photo Credit: Mike Coppola/Getty Images Welcome to a feature I like to call "Best in the World" rankings. They're not traditional power rankings per se, but they're rankings to see who is really the best in the world, a term bandied about like it's bottled water or something else really common. They're rankings decided by me, and don't you dare call them arbitrary lest I smack the taste out of your mouth. Without further ado, here's this week's list: 1. Ric Ocasek (Last Week: Not Ranked) - The Cars' frontman died last night at the age of 75. In addition to fronting one of the most iconic rock acts ever and writing a good bit of the band's songs, Ocasek was an accomplished producer. Do you like Weezer when they were good? Yeah, Ocasek produced their debut album. His band's songs were the soundtrack to many people's lives, and they still resonate today. Rest in peace to an utter titan of music. 2. Cain Velasquez (Last Week: Not Ranked) - Most MMA guys coming into wrestling play up their background. It's a satisfying style, sure, but it's Rookie Mode. Cain Velasquez? He's going All-Madden mode. He continued the path he forged from TripleMania at the AAA New York Invasion event last night by doing all kinds of lucha. The kicker is the guy who made hay as a heavyweight in the UFC is flying around the ring like El Hijo del Vikingo and doing a pretty good job at it. Now that's impressive. 3. Carson Wentz (Last Week: Not Ranked) - Okay, so the Eagles lost last night, and part of that reason is because Wentz was, in a word, shitty in the first half. That being said, after all his receivers got hurt and he had to climb out of a double-digit deficit in the second half, he led the team with amazing throws, Houdini-esque escapes from pressure, and stunning leadership. You learn things in defeat, and aside from learning that Isaac Seumalo is a sieve and that the defense having to blitz to get pressure is not good, that Wentz is THAT guy. 4. Maki Itoh (Last Week: 4) - Hey, she's in Spain this week. Maybe she'll learn a new word like tapas or caca. 5. Brazilian Steakhouse (Last Week: Not Ranked) OFFICIAL HOLZERMAN HUNGERS SPONSORED RANKING - It is, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the pinnacle of eating. People come to your table with sizzling hot meat on swords, and you can go get as much exquisite appetizers you want at the salad bar. What is there not to love about this? Unless you're vegan, then I understand. But then again, they have rodizio-style pineapple too. Just sayin'. 6. Orange Cassidy (Last Week: 2) - Pfft, whatever, man. 7. Garrett Shrader (Last Week: Not Ranked) - If football doesn't pan out for this guy, he has a place in the wrestling business the way he bumped off this tackle. 8. Patrick Mahomes (Last Week: Not Ranked) - Not many players in any sport but basketball can have a singular impact in a short amount of time. Mahomes is one of them. His Kansas City team was down 10-0 to the Raiders after one quarter of play. At halftime? Kansas City was up 28-10, which would end up as the final score. In the second quarter, Mahomes had four touchdown passes, the shortest of which was 27 yards. In addition, he threw for 289 yards in that short timeframe. More than a few QBs can't do that in a single game. Holy shit. 9. Killer Kross (Last Week: Not Ranked) - Look, it takes brass ones to call out Batista on a relatively small indie show compared to the gigs he's getting nowadays. Hell, I'm not even talking WWE. Batista is a full-fledged movie star who has a recurring role in the biggest thing in movies nowadays. If he pulls it off and gets him for a match? Well, he'd be the most successfully bold guy in wrestling history. 10. Oney Lorcan (Last Week: 10) - Oney Lorcan is here for porkin', even if Ken Shamrock isn't.

    Thatcher was in the best match at this Bloodsport as he was in the first two Photo Credit: Scott Finkelstein This past Saturday night, the Josh Barnett iteration of Bloodsport had its second show, notable because it was the first of the three shows not to be held at Mania weekend and the first one not to have Minoru Suzuki in the main event slot. Like the prior two shows, however, it was an entertaining display of shoot-style pro wrestling in a landscape where that kind of wrestling isn't found a whole heck of a lot. At best, you get a rougher, rawer version of pro wrestling that has the best counters and unique striking. At worst, well, it's people misunderstanding what shoot-style is and trying to do worked MMA. I feel like the latter has a higher floor though. I'd rather watch Allysin Kay and Nicole Savoy do 80 percent of the match in side control than Randy Orton do anything, to be honest. I'd rather talk about the good matches though, the ones that showed the range of what shoot-style can provide, starting with the Timothy Thatcher/Minowaman match, which I thought was the best on the show by a mile. No one explores Bloodsport's studio space quite like Thatcher, maybe because he, more than anyone who has worked MMA and pro wrestling in their careers, embodies the spirit of the event. His style is the rawest version of British grappling possible, but it's a style that is still professional wrestling, and he knows it. So the way he approaches a match in Bloodsport isn't to make it look like a MMA fight, it's the way he approaches every match. His style is one that fits so snugly into the whole aesthetic. If you look at his arc through the three Bloodsport events, it's hard to think of anyone else as the MVP so far. All three of his opponents were cut from different cloth. At first Bloodsport, he took on Nick Gage, who is the furthest thing from a shoot-style wrestler. What kind of match was it? It was Thatcher riding out the storm of Gage throwing so much violence at him, a maelstrom of fists and detritus. At the first Barnett Bloodsport, he wrestled Hideki Suzuki, who is as much of if not more of a grappler than Thatcher. That match was just straight up locking and countering. And here, vs. the Japanese hybrid wrestler/fighter, Thatcher went out and did his thing. Minowaman did his thing. It was, like the Gage match on that show and the Suzuki match on that show, the best complete bout on the card. It wasn't the only good match though, and the other ones that were satisfying were the ones that didn't try to pretend that they weren't wrestling matches. The opener, Zachary Wentz vs. Anthony Henry, was a blistering strikefest that finished hot. Davey Boy Smith, Jr. vs. Filthy Tom Lawlor was probably the platonic ideal of how you do a "worked MMA" fight in the template of a wrestling match. It had the heavy submissions and a little bit of stalling, but they went through the beats of a wrestling match with the requisite big spots that popped off the screen, like Smith's homage to his father with the running powerslam or Lawlor's sliding D that took him and Smith out of the ring. Nick Gage vs. Killer Kross was a goddamn hoot even if it was only under four minutes. Then again, four minutes is just enough time not just for a shoot-style match, but for a regular match. Like, too many matches go long for the sake of going long (like both Barnett matches at either of these shows with his name!). All this match needed was a Gage headbutt and the chokehold where the ref called for the bell prematurely. Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Kross calling out Batista after the match. Part of me wants to believe Game Changer Wrestling mogul Brett Lauderdale wouldn't have signed off on it if he didn't have reasonable belief Big Dave would accept and make Bloodsport 4 3, by far, the biggest show of Mania weekend. On the other, he had Gage invade a Combat Zone Wrestling show to try and jumpstart an angle without letting CZW know, so talking that shit is on his resume. Either way, you gotta shoot your shot, right? I doubt that Bloodsport's tenor will change too much going forward. They're always going to go for names, hence bringing in Frank Mir to face off against Dan Severn at Mania weekend. You'll have the matches like Kay/Savoy or Erik Hammer/JR Kratos, and again, there's always the chance that even if those matches are way too by-the-book worked MMA bouts, they might have an exciting moment you otherwise wouldn't see in some standard wrestling match featuring dudes trying to get their shit in. But this show, much like its two predecessors, had some unique matches that you have to go out of your way to watch. It's only $20 on FITE TV for the replay, and you can watch it as many times as you want.

    Cass needs more help Photo Credit: WWE.com When CazXL, the former Colin "Big Cass" Cassady, was last in the news, he was posting a heartfelt plea for everyone to root for him because he was battling depression. It was a noble plea, to be honest, and no one should have to suffer from depression. I know, I suffer from it. That being said, some folks were ready to use it as a clean-slate for him for shit he's done in the past. Honestly, depressed or not, it doesn't cause nor excuse behavior like stalking an ex-girlfriend the way he did Carmella in his final days in WWE. It's the same thing as CTE. You can use it to explain away a lot of things, but CTE didn't make Chris Benoit kill his family. Benoit did. CTE just made it easier for him to act on it. It's the same with depression. You can feel its heel crushing you, but at the end of the day, if you lash out at people who don't deserve it, well, depression didn't make you do it. So it's both not surprising but disheartening to see that CazXL had a whole episode at this weekend's WrestlePro show. It makes sense that CazXL would have residual bad feelings with fellow WP bookee Joey Janela, given the Bad Boy got into it with the former Cass' boy. According to this report from WrestleZone, Cass not only confronted Janela, but he went into the locker room of outgoing WP booker and incoming WWE producer Pat Buck and started accusing him and SoCal Uncensored of stealing his things. Buck, who isn't just a body guy, apparently, knocked CazXL out. Upon arrival to the scene, the police saw him and had an ambulance take him to the hospital. It's not good to see that Cass hasn't really learned anything even after stepping away for a frightfully short amount of time he took off to take care of his mental health issues. It's clear he hasn't rehabbed or else he wouldn't have picked a fight with Janela or accused someone of stealing things without any proof. He was taken to the right place even if I question whether the cops had the right to do it. Then again, if Cass were black, I wonder if he'd still be alive right now. But I digress. Being as combative as he is in a business where you have to be cooperative isn't something you can excuse completely. The depression may have been lubrication for him to act out, but he's also got to reconcile with himself that he has issues to work out with interpersonal relationships. You don't go around at your bookings and just start shit with everyone you can find. At the very least, you'll end up instigating yourself out of bookings, period. He needs help, yes, but he needs to be serious about taking that help. He can't just yes his way through therapy and plot which asshole has a slap to the face coming to him at the next show. I don't want to seem cold, but it's hard to look at what he's doing with the goodwill he borrowed back and think his tragedy isn't partially self-caused. I hope he gets better, mind you. I just hope that he is the one who wants to get better. Maybe he should start by not hanging around with nZo anymore.

    The Guy Photo Credit: WWE.com 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: Is Roman Reigns The Guy? — South Atlanta Wrestling Dot Com/Sponsor Of ACTION (@S_ATL_Wrestling) September 11, 2019As someone who has sworn off watching WWE, my answer might not mean much, but inasmuch as Reigns is an ambassador and a prohibitive ace for the company, I would say yes, he is The Guy, at least in WWE. He's a good wrestler, which is more than you can say for Seth Rollins. He's also a bit more diplomatic about things, even if he believes things that I don't agree with. You have to figure that if he hadn't had Vince McMahon scripting him dumb promos and pushing him too hard upon his comeback from a hernia, he might have won people over sooner, especially given that his match with Brock Lesnar at Mania 31 was solid, at least up to the Rollins cash-in. But there are worse people to have in front of the fans as the top dude than Reigns. Like Seth Rollins. Our 40-pound, super social puppy is on crate rest for a minimum of two weeks. It sucks. What’s the longest you’ve been out of your normal routine and how did you cope? #TweetBag — Star of Savage (@StarOfSavage) September 11, 2019I would say technically, the longest I've been out of sorts was when I went on cruises, but those are positive things I enjoyed. I'd say the longest I've been out of a routine was when my daughter was born. She was six weeks premature, and we were back and forth to the NICU, well I was. My wife, who got an emergency C-section, kinda had to stay at the hospital to recover. Anyway, it was brutal. My daughter was so small, but she eventually was okay enough that we could take her home. I don't know how I coped with it. I guess Twitter helped. Getting to take off from work was a silver lining as well. I don't know. It was a total reverse from when my son was born, where everything went mostly well. The end result was the important part, having a healthy daughter to complete the human portion of our family. Protected user @earthdog asks: How is the Greater Delaware Valley reacting to the first Eagles game? How should I react to the Eagles first half slow start and second half comeback? I have insulated myself from anyone whom I don't follow on Twitter. That being said, the reaction was generally positive starting with the second half-opening drive. In retrospect, the Slurs' defense was a strength last year, and I don't think any of the starters played a snap in the preseason. I don't think anyone expected Case Keenum to carve the team up, but at the same time, a few inches change in tackler position and Vernon Davis doesn't score the first touchdown. Who knows how their luck might've changed there. The second half team is more of what the real deal is, I think. I could be wrong, because losses jump out at you from nowhere in the NFL. The Pats lost to five teams last year, none of which made the playoffs. The Falcons could jump out against the defense this Sunday night if the pass rush doesn't get home, but you'd think that game isn't worrisome, right? I would slot the Eagles as a 10-6 team at least, with better records possible with some luck. I'm not an Iggles fan, and they've fucked up the pack a bunch of times in my life. But I love DeSean Jackson. Where does Jax fit on your all time eagle WR list? — Tony, Just Tony (@LeftoverCruz) September 11, 2019I want to put him at number one if just for how important he was to so many great Eagles' teams, especially this year's, but Harold Carmichael was a game changer. He might be the most overlooked receiver in history, but he was the first of the kind of hybrid speed/height guys you have today, like Randy Moss or Alshon Jeffery. I think it's pretty easy to slot the first two. After Jackson though, it gets harder. You have all-time great guys who haven't logged as many seasons like Terrell Owens and Jeffery (although by the time his career is over, Jeffery might be a solid number three), and then you have guys who played here forever but were a step below like Fred Barnett or Jeremy Maclin. However, Jackson is definitely slotted behind Carmichael for a solid one-two punch. You can draft the last Trio for KoT, but it has to have one WWE and one AEW roster member on it. Go. — Chaotic Scotsman (@E_McDevitt) September 11, 2019How about if I have two AEW roster members? Give me Chuck Taylor, Orange Cassidy, and Drew Gulak, the Gentleman's Club, for one last run. They have name cache and are Chikara homegrown guys. What's not to love? In all seriousness, while that trio would be amazing, I get the feeling that there are three valid choices for the final slot. The first is probably the most obvious, the Proteus Wheel. It's strange they haven't been announced yet, unless one of them left Chikara on the sly. The next most likely is The Whisper recruiting Joshua Wells and another Crucible guy as an act of defiance against Ophidian for dropping him from his team. The final least likely but enjoyable team nonetheless would be the Minnesota Wrecking Zoo of The Estonian Thunderfrog, Wildcat, and Airwolf. Either way, I'm awaiting that Trios announcement with bated breath. Who are your 5 least favorite NFL teams in order? Please give quick reasoning! #tweetbag — Nick Christakos (@nick36c) September 11, 20195. New York Giants - Normally they'd be higher, but they're so pathetic that I can't hate them with the same tenacity. I also really like Saquon Barkley. 4. New Orleans Saints - I don't think I'll hate them forever like the Giants or other two divisional rivals, but the incessant whining from not only their fans but the TEAM itself is irritating. I've never seen someone carry so much venom for a team his owned last year than I do Alvin Kamara for the Eagles. Also, Sean Payton fuckin' sucks. 3. New England Patriots - They win all the time and are joyless fuckbags about it. Also, they skirt the salary cap by underpaying their starting QB because said QB has a boutique nutrition business he makes money from and my team doesn't. 2. Landover Racial Slurs - All owners are bad, but Daniel Snyder might be the worst. Also, the team name is racist. 1. Dallas Cowboys - Jerry Jones may be worse than Snyder. Their dynasty in the '90s was boring. Also, they've won three playoff games in two decades and are still on at 4 PM or later on Sunday every week. FUUUUCK. What does fatherhood mean to you? — AKD (@DrameTV2) September 11, 2019Everything. Like, it's different when you have kids because now you gotta take care of them. Too many dads don't realize it, so they're deadbeats or they leave home. Like, I have two more reasons to stay alive and keep chugging along, because if I can't help my kids have a better life than me, what kind of selfish dickhead am I? Who’s your favorite King of the Ring winner? — Bloody Beer Baron (@BeerBaron4life) September 11, 2019My favorite wrestler ever to win King of the Ring is Randy Savage, but my favorite reign as King has to be Owen Hart. I mean, at the time I hated him, but that was because he was an excellent heel. No one made being the King a part of their character like Hart did. He went all in, much like he did with the Slammy Awards, and that's why he was the quintessential King of the Ring. Why is Corbin continuously pushed to the moon — Brett (@brettr527) September 11, 2019People boo him. Vince McMahon will listen to crowd reactions over anything else, even ignoring the fact that every metric that defines a successful business has suffered in the last two years. Maybe some of that is pushing his failson Shane as a top heel despite being loose as fuck and not good at anything but glowing in the dark. Maybe some of it is the fact that RAW and Smackdown felt like they were in reruns (at least up to I stopped watching, which is all I can speak on). But I mean, if a live audience is booing Corbin, McMahon will push him. 5 games you like that everyone dislikes. — Summer Islander (@RainInLava1) September 11, 20191-2. Super Mario Bros. 2 and Zelda 2: The Adventures of Link - The two sequels to Nintendo's wildly successful anchor franchises disappointed a lot of people. However, as a veteran of both of those games, I can tell you that they're good. 3. Final Fantasy VIII - I see a lot of people saying they liked this game all along, but even back in the message board days, people dumped on this game. It's better than VII, I'll tell you. 4. Castlevania II: Simon's Quest - Another NES sequel that people seem to like to hate on nowadays, I thought it was a fun riff on the franchise. The stuff that the Angry Video Game Nerd harped on didn't really bother me either. 5. Nightshade - I have no idea if this game is hated or not, but the fact that I'm the only one I know who seems to have played it is, well, maybe a condemnation? Dislike through apathy is a thing. #tweetbag The latest Scooby-Doo show is focused on special guests each episode. What five famous people would you like to see team up with Mystery Inc? — David (@chudleycannons) September 11, 2019I don't really have reasons for them, but Daniel Bryan, Terry Crews, Aubrey Plaza, Laverne Cox, and Danny DeVito would all be a hoot to watch team up with the gang, especially DeVito, who has experience with his own gang. Maybe he'll bond with Scooby and get an apartment with him. #TweetBag Why does everyone think Riho is the 9 year old Kenny wrestled, she’s not. Also why does everyone think it was a DDT match? It wasn’t https://t.co/bsfISsOIEl —

    If someone asks you for their personal information, and you say no, they should respect it A certain wrestling promotion melted down on Twitter when two female wrestlers decided not to honor the promoter's request for personal information. A friend of the blog, who wishes to remain anonymous, has a commentary on it, and here at The Wrestling Blog, their request will be honored. Please read below: It has been zero days since wrestling was nonsense. What with wrestling consistently being either a garbage fire or a shitshow, and sometimes both at once, you’d be forgiven for missing the latest bullshit in wrestling. A promoter asked two ladies booked on his show for their personal numbers (in case of emergency, even though both people suggested other reliable methods of contact) and both declined. The promoter kept pushing it, and both women posted their encounters on social media. The promotion was named by another wrestler, and things escalated. By escalated, what I mean is “The promoter got defensive and started making “sexual assault is probably deserved” and “Let me make fun of cancer and suicide” jokes*”, and talent started to take notice and pull out of the show. The theater where the show is booked has been informed, is passing the information along to their governing body, and it looks like the show may not go on after all. Now, before you hop onto your soapbox and start yelling about how SJWs are ruining wrestling – and I know some of you are about halfway there – have you ever stopped to consider that maybe, just maybe, the reprehensible behavior of the promoter when told no probably had more to do with this situation than anyone calling them out on social media did? It would’ve been much easier to say, hey yeah, we know this isn’t acceptable, thanks for explaining, in the future we won’t ask for this. Instead, once called out, they decided to double down and get horrifically defensive. What a lot of people seem to forget is that no means no, in every situation. If someone says no, they don’t want you to have their private phone number, respect it. If a talent says no, I’m not comfortable with any aspect of a situation, acknowledge that and work to repair it. Wrestling is still very much a closed-doors brother brother work environment. It doesn’t have to be. In cases like this, it definitely helps that for once, it wasn’t. * - "Jokes" is asterisked because they weren’t funny. At all.

    The reluctant trio is in Graphics via ChikaraPro.com So when last the King of Trios updates were, uh, well updated, the field was at a lucky 13 teams with an offer hanging in the balance for a 14th. In that time, the offer was accepted, an existing team was shaken up, and perhaps the most fun team in the tournament, well, second most-fun after the Quack Pack, was announced. Also, another wrestler was announced for Rey de Voladores, and a cult leader used his one Golden Opportunity to try to become head trainer, failed, and won another one. That's a lot of info to take in. Come and dive in with me. So, Dasher Hatfield and Molly McCoy had a standing offer to Boomer Hatfield, who is already entered in Rey de Voladores, to compete in Trios with them as a family. The story with that family is that dad got corrupted by the power of holding the Grand Championship in an interim capacity. He rebuffed his brother-in-law, Mark Angelosetti, and then legitimized his reign in a ladder match WrestleMania weekend. Over the time between last season's finale, when he first turned to the rudo side, and then, Dasher became colder and meaner towards Boomer, who also was opposed to dad's cheating. So son challenged dad for his mask at Aniversario in Chicago and won, and Cousin Molly said she'd never forgive Boomer for the act of aggression, even though it was Dasher clearly in the wrong. One could maybe not blame Boomer if he didn't want to accept the offer, but he did so, possibly at the behest of whatever family member he was speaking to on the phone in this video (his mother?). Now, the raw talent on this team is unquestioned. Dasher is still the Grand Champion, Boomer is an up-and-coming future Chikara ace, and McCoy, well, she's a wild card but also a Broad Street Bully. However, one cannot discount the dysfunction. Also, if this team wins night one, and Boomer has to pull double duty night two, well, you might see things really get testy. Trio number 15 is a lot less steeped in drama and much more trained in the art of ROCK N ROLL, BABY. Stray Kat (Allie Kat elsewhere) and "That Ol' Juke Joint" Lucas Calhoun will shake their hips and bring cat scratch fever to Trios with the straitlaced bruiser, Missile Assault Man. While the Kat and the Juke Joint were unsuccessful in their attempt at Los Campeonatos de Parejas, they will look to forge ahead with the former member of Colony: Xtreme Force. Missile Assault Man has had quite the career trajectory, but he's found a niche as a no-nonsense tecnico brawler lately. The chip on his shoulder should pair well as a foil to the other two's carefree, rocking party attitude. Another already-announced team decided it would make a change on the fly. The Crucible's A-team contained the group's leader Ophidian, its consigliere Whisper, and stalwart member Lance Steel. Well, at Chikarasaurus Rex, Ophidian made a substitution on the fly, replacing Whisper with former Grand Champion Kimber Lee. While the reasons for the substitution are unknown, Whisper is not taking it lightly. Pretty convenient for you that no sooner is this information released you slither your way across an ocean — The Whisper (@The__Whisper) September 11, 2019Yeah, sounds like someone taken by surprise. With one team left, could Whisper slink his way back into the tournament with Joshua Wells and perhaps another disgraced Crucible exile? Or will he just screw with Ophidian's team and ensure that they won't win? It should also be noted that Lee and Whisper held the CdP as and odd couple tandem after being rivals. I wonder if she had some dirt on him. Time will tell. Ophidian was busy outside of Trios stuff too, as an aside. For those who don't know, he won Chikara's answer to the Royal Rumble, the Infinite Gauntlet, earning him a Golden Opportunity, i.e., three points in service of a title shot that could not be lost the way points normally are. However, instead of choosing Dasher's Grand Championship or Team FIST's CdP, he made a quite unorthodox challenge to Chikara patriarch and head trainer Mike Quackenbush for his latter position this past Friday. He lost the match, but he made up for it by winning the Johnny Kidd Invitational at C-Rex, getting that Golden Opportunity back. Does this have ramifications for Trios? Perhaps, as if he has another shot in his back pocket, perhaps that telegraphs his Crucible team may not win the whole thing. Will he use that Golden Opportunity on Quack for the trainer title again, or will he upend the Grand Champion, whoever that is when he challenges? Time will tell. Finally, while his master Oceanea and cohorts Merlok and Hermit Crab will look to take home Trios glory, Cajun Crawdad will enter his name into the Rey de Voladores tournament. He is the third announced competitor, along with the aforementioned Boomer and Kentucky's former best kept secret Alex Zayne. I don't expect the entire field to be announced in advance of the tournament given it will certainly contain some night one losers, but so far, it's a strong field. The other 13 teams for the tournament have been announced already and are as follows: Team Pump (Scott Steiner, Jordynne Grace, Petey Williams) The Ancient Order of Nations (Mick Moretti, Adam Hoffman, Jack Bonza) The Carnies (Kerry Awful, Nick Iggy, Tripp Cassidy) The Embassy (Prince Nana, Jimmy Rave, Sal Rinauro) The VeloCities (Mat Diamond, Jude London, Paris DeSilva) Team FIST (Icarus, Tony Deppen, Travis Huckabee) The Crucible (Ophidian, Kimber Lee, Lance Steel) The Creatures of the Deep (Oceanea, Merlok, Hermit Crab) The Colony (Fire Ant, Green Ant, Thief Ant) The Crucible II (Matt Makowski, Devantes, EM DeMorest) Three Queens (Solo Darling, Willow Nightingale, Freddie Mercurio) The Quack Pack (Mike Quackenbush, Rob Killjoy, Lance Lude) The Nightmare Warriors (Hallowicked, Frightmare, Kobald) With one more team left to announce, Trios this year looks like an amazingly stacked bracket with several winners and even more potential crowd pleasers. You can catch the action October 4-6 at the Goodwill Beneficial Association in Reading, PA. All information and ticket sales can be found at ChikaraPro.com. Night one will have all the first round matches. The middle day, Saturday, starts with King of Brunches, then later on Fan Conclave, and finally with the second show, featuring the four quarterfinal Trios matches, two Rey de Voladores four-way qualifiers, and just announced, master and student colliding with BLANK taking on Still Life with Apricots and Pears. Night three will contain the semifinal and final matches of Trios, the Rey de Voladores final, and the always crowd-pleasing Ten Tag Team Gauntlet. Get your tickets now.

    Jaccpot Photo Credit: Bill Streicher/USA Today Sports Welcome to a feature I like to call "Best in the World" rankings. They're not traditional power rankings per se, but they're rankings to see who is really the best in the world, a term bandied about like it's bottled water or something else really common. They're rankings decided by me, and don't you dare call them arbitrary lest I smack the taste out of your mouth. Without further ado, here's this week's list: 1. DeSean Jackson (Last Poll: Not Ranked) - Jackson returned to the Eagles yesterday to catch two 50+ yard touchdown passes, torching both his former team, the Landover Racial Slurs, and also, albeit indirectly, the coach who cut him for racist reasons, Chip Kelly. Sure, Kelly may have scurried to California to coach college ball (terribly, I might add), but that doesn't mean this wasn't even more egg on his face seeing Jackson after four years away come back and catch tuddies like he didn't miss a beat in midnight green. It is great to have him back. 2. Orange Cassidy (Last Poll: 3) - So, he like showed up at All Out and became the third Best Friend. So what, like, that could have happened at any time, okay. 3. Nyla Rose (Last Poll: Not Ranked) - Rose became the first All Elite Women's Champion at All Out, thus owning all the transphobes who say that trans women aren't women. They are! And they can be fierce and fearsome wrestlers too, dorks. 4. Maki Itoh (Last Poll: 5) - What a beautiful master of language, even after getting bloodied in war against a literal demon. 5. Jason Peters (Last Poll: Not Ranked) - At 37 years old, Peters played all 75 offensive snaps in the Eagles' win yesterday at one of the most demanding positions on the field. Like Mark Henry in his salmon suit, he's still got a lot in the tank, and the Slurs' defensive front were all a bunch of puppets. 6. Crabcakes (Last Poll: Not Ranked) OFFICIAL HOLZERMAN HUNGERS SPONSORED ENTRY - Nothing beats a good crabcake, like the one I had for dinner last night, which was golden fried and creamy but not fishy-tasting. It's a good thing to live near Maryland and thus have their crabcake prowess waft north and east. 7. Ophidian (Last Poll: Not Ranked) - The leader of the Crucible won the Johnny Kidd Invitational, and although he couldn't wrest the title of head trainer from Mike Quackenbush, he might just win that Grand Championship and secure victory for his cult! Hooray cults! 8. Antonio Brown (Last Poll: Not Ranked) - Look, he might have descended into madness and signed with one of the most evil franchises in sports, but he called Mike Mayock a cracker in the process. I stan a King. It should also be mentioned that Brown didn't start acting up until noted accused rapist Ben Roethlisberger started feuding with him in Pittsburgh, because nothing is ever that lummox's fault. Anyway, the Patriots, Brown's new team, shitkicked the Steelers last night, 33-3 (even though he wasn't allowed to play), which might be the only time I was somewhat satisfied to see the Pats win a game. 9. Toru Yano (Last Poll: 4) - The fourth DLC character for Super Smash Bros.: Ultimate was announced as Terry Bogard from the SNK fighting games, which can only mean since they're trending obscure and Japanese that Yano is the fifth and final character to be announced. Huzzah! 10. Oney Lorcan (Last Poll: Here for Porkin') - Sorry, I ran out of Otis Dozovic gifs, so allow me to go back to a classic, okay?

    Bodom should be ostracized but he's not the only one Photo via Internet Wrestling Database For a sport-slash-art that is entirely based on feigned violence, pro wrestling requires an impeccable sense of protecting not just yourself, but the people with whom you're working. In the old days, when the wrestlers were convinced that maintaining kayfabe meant pretending it was real to anyone who asked, they had a code of honor that made sure they would protect their opponents (as long as a double-cross wasn't in the works). Bret Hart, for example, has famously said that he's proudest that he's never hurt someone during his career. I shouldn't say that that ethos has dissolved over time, and in fact I think it might have grown stronger. That being said, there are always exceptions to the rule. Take for example the incident in Defy Wrestling earlier this year when Los Parks assaulted a referee after the match. While the incident could be blamed on more than the aggressors in this situation, it was still a black mark. Labor Day weekend, Revolution Pro Wrestling held one of its Summer Sizzler events, where the Tag Champions, Sha Samuels and Josh Bodom, assaulted referee Aaren Wilde after he mistakenly counted a pin that was supposed to be a kickout. Samuels bodyslammed Wilde, who was unprepared to take the move. After that, Bodom started legitimately wailing on Wilde, as seen in the video below. Warning, it's disconcerting: pic.twitter.com/KRQy4PDTwH — Alex Dellanzo (@ADellanzo1) September 8, 2019Needless to say, Bodom was fired from RevPro, and Samuels was put on probation. I would've maybe sat the latter down a show or two, but the company bought his apology. Regardless of whether he meant it as a shoot or not, Samuels did a move to someone who wasn't expecting it, which is the definition of a shoot, no matter how much he claimed to be "protecting" his target. Bodom's actions, however, are inexcusable, and what he's done in the aftermath - blaming Wilde, retiring from wrestling, deleting his Twitter - suggests that any account of the events coming from his mouth are probably bullshit. Granted, the video doesn't show how the beatdown started, so Bodom has plausible deniability in his claim that Wilde tried to take him down. However, Bodom's petulance in his reaction and the fact that Wilde just took an unexpected bump means that maybe if he did "lunge" at Bodom, it was a spasm or an attempt to try to get to his feet. Wilde has had to retire from wrestling as a referee. He now loses out on dates not only for RevPro, but for other prominent British indies. Obviously, booking Bodom from this point out (and possibly Samuels too) shows a lack of concern for safety for anyone on the same show as him/them. There has been outcry already, just the same as there was when Sexy Star or Yoshiko shot on their opponents. Those wrestlers are safety risks anymore, but is in-ring safety the only thing you need to worry about as someone in the industry or as a fan at a show? What about people like Aaron Epic and Sami Callihan, who have domestic violence accusations levied against them? Or SHLAK, who has Nazi ties and has a violent personality? What about Chasyn Rance, who was convicted of going across state lines to commit statutory rape, or Brad Stutts, whose timeout from wrestling after it came out he was a serial creep and predator lasted maybe 20 minutes before people started using him backstage again? Do these people not make wrestling shows unsafe for women, Jewish folk, and other marginalized people who might be at the very least triggered with bad memories seeing someone they know is abusive? The flipside to this argument is that wrestling, even though it is pantomime, is still a violent thing that attracts people predisposed to using violence to solve problems. People bemoan wrestling's turn to "art school kids," a ridiculous complaint if I ever heard one, but for every Johnny Gargano who asks in character why he's so violent, there are 20 other guys whom you wouldn't want to cross. It's the same thing with other contact sports. It shouldn't be surprising that the National Football League, for example, attracts so many domestic abusers and rapists, because it is a sport where 22 men crash into each other in ten second increments 150 times a game. The same goes for wrestling where the bumps are multiplied, condensed, and made more frequent. Just because it attracts the violently intimidating though doesn't mean promotions and self-policing locker rooms shouldn't try to keep the predators out of the biz. Protecting your peers is more than just making sure that you don't intentionally hurt them in and around the ring, even if that's still a huge part of the supposed code. But the outcry against Bodom, Sexy Star, and Yoshiko should be directed towards the friends of otherwise well-meaning people in locker rooms who hit people as a fear tactic or who have been photographed with skinheads without remorse or a legit apology (when you say you hate antifa too when saying you hate Nazis, you're telling on yourself). I mean, if someone has no qualms hitting their spouse or partner or child, they're not gonna have any qualms about shooting on someone whom they feel has screwed up in a match setting, right? No matter what, a safe space should not be derided or mocked. More and more, the establishment, whether government or "subversive" media or even your parents keep telling you that life is hard and you should deal with it, but the world is getting richer and richer and more and more ways to keep people safe are being developed everyday. Why should the people who shit themselves if someone identifies as a gender outside of the binary tell you that you have to sacrifice safety because some piece of shit doesn't want to face consequences for battering a supposed loved one? Everyone should demand an attempt at a safe place to be entertained or to live their lives. Wrestling is no different. So when you raise your pitchforks against Josh Bodom, make sure you keep that same energy the next time one of your "favorites" is accused of rape, domestic battery, or has photographs of them with known Nazis, okay?

    Robinson, as Kansas City's WR3, could be a better pick than most teams' RB1 Photo Credit: Denny Medley/USA Today Sports 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 would be your fantasy football strategy for a 12 team draft? — AKD (@DrameTV2) September 4, 2019Fantasy football, how jocks partake in nerdy endeavors. I've been playing for over 20 years, and trends have changed drastically in that time. Right now, for a 12-team draft, you're going to want to find players who can score touchdowns, since the yard-aggregators will be spread a bit thinner than they would be in 10-team leagues. While running backs are still very much valuable players (moreso in fantasy than in real life, as you've seen with the shift in drafting and paying backs in the league). You're going to want to target the guys like Saquon Barkley and Alvin Kamara early. However, what will put you over the top are touchdowns from skill position players. The truth is that the NFL has become a passing league, and I don't see it shifting back ever. So that means that if you're drafting later in the first round, you should probably target a wide receiver. If you're lucky enough to get a bellcow back, you should target receivers in the second and third round. If you prioritize running back, you're going to end up reaching for someone like, say, Jordan Howard. Meanwhile, someone like Demarcus Robinson or Mecole Hardman, the third and fourth wide receivers for the Chiefs, may end up outscoring all but the top tier of running backs with the way that they like to throw the ball. Get running backs, but be choosy and pick them in spots. Your roster should always be WR heavy, because the probability for a receiving touchdown is going to be a lot larger than a rushing touchdown going forward. Protected user @earthdog asks: What are the five best things about Back To School season?1. Football Season Returns - I like all sports, and obviously wrestling is year round, but there's nothing that beats plunking down for eight hours on a Sunday and watching the big boys put that ball into the end zone. Of course, the NFL is more my speed, but college football on Saturdays is enjoyable too. 2. Fall Flavors - People bag on "basic White girls" for liking pumpkin spice, but have you ever considered that it's good? Pumpkin pie rules, pumpkin beers rule. In addition, fall marks the unofficial beginning of chili season. Chili is one of the finest innovations in American cuisine. Plus, apples are back in season. Everyone loves apples! 3. Peace and Quiet Around the House - Kids are back in school, so they're not around to bug you. Plus, when they get home, they have to do homework, so they're out of your hair for other things. Of course, helping with homework can be hard, but at least it's a focused task rather than the nebulous finding something for them to do. 4. Playoff Baseball - The stretch run of the season and the playoffs are some of the best baseball that you'll see. So many exciting baseball games are on television, and you can always look forward to the annual tradition of the Atlanta baseball team choking badly, most likely in the Divisional Series. 5. It's No Longer Hot As Balls Out, Well, Theoretically - Autumn used to have the best weather, but climate change wrecked that. You do get like two weeks between sweltering late summer and early slush-bomb storms, and those are nice. What’s the Philadelphia equivalent of AEW being in “Chicago” when the Sears Centre is really 35 miles from downtown? #TweetBag — Star of Savage (@StarOfSavage) September 4, 2019The closest I can think of is the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ. It's where Combat Zone Wrestling and Women's Superstars Uncensored held events. I'm not sure if they're still active there, because Game Changer Wrestling's prominence has made me not even want to follow CZW. That being said, every "Philly" arena is in Philly: the ECW/2300 Arena, the Liacouras Center, obviously the Wells Fargo Center, Chikara Wrestle Factory, even that armory in the Far Northeast is within Philly's borders. Chicagoland and the Delaware Valley are two different beasts. Where would be the best place to lose your world championship days after winning it — Ryan Czachorski (@czach1r) September 4, 2019Similarly to losing it at Longhorn Steakhouse (I've been so busy at my day job that I'm so pissed I haven't had the chance to blog about this in earnest), it would be at a restaurant. But I'm thinking more up to speed of wrestling. I don't even know who is the target audience for Longhorn. It's not for the salt of the earth, but rich people go to like Morton's or Ruth's Chris. Longhorn feels like the kinda place you go to so you can spend your per diem on company travel on a nice meal within your limits. You know where wrestlers would feel at home at? Waffle House. Losing the title at the Waffle House and then a cook posing for pictures with the belt on while smothering and covering those hash browns? Yeah, that's so appropriate it hurts. What does "25 or 6 to 4" mean, as said in the Chicago song of the same name? — Trey (@TreyIrby) September 4, 2019It's gotta have a real meaning, but I've always taken it that the songwriter was bored and was counting down the minutes to when they could leave work. 25 or 6 to 4... o'clock. If I looked it up online, it would be cheating, and I'm nothing if not a cheater. Okay, I cheat when I can, but hey. That if WWE were smart they should have first punished her for her insubordination. As someone who has worked, how would you guess the work morale was affected, and is this unnamed podcaster making any sense? (2/2) —
