I believe it was the folks in gorilla who thought Mixkie was out, and told the ref to call it

Which, that's the key as to why Asuka's the one exception Vince has to pushing anyone non-white or non-native English speaking. He thinks she's a shooter.

If he can drop another 50-100 he's gonna look like a fuckin killer. Good for him.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

Hisame's translations really add to following NOAH, both on Twitter & her website where she translates interviews & articles from Japanese sites & magazines. Like this line from a Kiyomiya interview, about Go Shiozaki.

""I think he's the greatest enemy. In January he stole my belt, and is still the champion. I will win the league and return the GHC to its proper place."

Majestic level of confidence from young Kaito. Looking forward to him living up to his word.

Itís a wwe promo pic from last year posted with an unrelated/made up headline. Itís a weird fake news Facebook post thing youíd expect to see on a wine mom meme page.

Itís just weird they used a pic of Lynch instead of a stock photo, whoever made it probably google imageíd mugshots and picked the image not knowing she was famous.

I kinda figured as much but with WWE you never really know since it's a cult and as much as I want to think Becky is above a lot of that...........*looks at who she's engaged to*

bix so now that deadspin is basically not really a relevant thing anymore, can you talk us through why articles about the All In event and early developments of AEW in the beginning of 2020 were scarce on the site? like it felt like it was just deliberately not being covered despite its mere existence being big news. was it just a decision made by higher up to not run anything on it?

You mean the beginning of 2019 I take it?

First, more broadly: I was always a freelancer, even if there were times it didn't look that way on the surface because they had various feature writers who wrote less than me. (Though there was a time I had close to carte blanche for topic selection...I forget exactly when, but it was at some point after Roth transitioned to being my usual editor.) Either way though, my arrangement went to being 2x/week in October 2017 then back to 1x/week (plus other potential pitches) in June 2018 as Boston Consulting or whatever they were called cut the freelance budget, and...I don't remember why exactly we didn't do more? The thing is that you have to remember that I wasn't gonna get drafted to do a basic news hit and McQuade's non-writing duties expanded, so if Luis wasn't able to get on something, it probably wasn't gonna hit the site.

I'm trying to remember if there's anything it felt like we skipped, though? We couldn't really do a story on the trademarks, but I did articles on the ROH farewell, the first press conference...remember, not much news was being parceled out for a while. And then they did feel that the launch was a big enough story to pay my way to Vegas for Double or Nothing.

Really, a lot of it was probably just timing as far as my coverage, when in the week was stuff happening, when were we earmarking my piece for, etc. Like you weren't gonna get "they did another presser and Omega was there because his NJPW contract had to expire first."

yeah, 2019 was what i meant. that does make sense, it was pretty staggered how often any concrete stuff came out. i guess it just felt frustrating because this was a site that was usually on the ball with this stuff and until DoN it felt like from a reader perspective it was just getting ignored or looked over.
