I sure hope the Sasha/Charlotte match ends in the title not changing hands, because that's going to go over quite awfully

Unless sasha is one of the rumored wellness policy violators, in which case

Also Finn winning is cool, and Dolph not winning is even cooler. Congrats, Foochs, my "I still like dean" post-trainwreck vs. Jericho has nothing on you

I saw some completely unsourced remark somewhere that it was Charlotte who popped in which case there's no way that belt is changing hands unless they want to contrive Bayley/Sasha while keeping it as a face/face match via a vacated title.

I bet it's something like Charlotte pins Sasha through some Dana fuckery, but then Mick comes out and says she's banned so orders the match restarted, and then Sasha wins.

My phrasing was poor.

I made a post saying "I still like Dean" after the asylum match, which had turned a whole lot of people against him, but my tepid enjoyment of the guy is/was nothing compared to your frankly incredible love of Dean.

So in lieu of congratulating dean, I'm congratulating you.

Bets only apply to the final result, so if the did a restart they would still count as a Sasha win.

If you follow it, the Vegas underdogs will commonly become heavy favorites within the last hour or so before a show when all the "smart" money comes in. This is also the reason that they put a limit on how much you can bet.

Any notes on the ROH tapings from Saturday as they build to ASE?

MagicCube

http://www.pwponderings.com/2016/08...sults-spoilers/

Check out ROH's youtube for the post-event breakdown where it looks like the main of ASE will be Elgin/Cole for the title. Also looking like there may be a Naito/Lethal match at some point which should be really good. Looking forward to a bunch of Fish/Shibata matches as well, but the next challenger is Dijak from the DBD 4 way.

STOP DOING HEROIN

NXT tapings ongoing right now

quote:

- Tom Phillips and Corey Graves are still the commentary team.

- Daria def. Billie Kay with a triangle. This was a dark match.

- Tye Dillinger def. Buddy Murphy.

- There was a backstage interview with Tommaso Chiampa that led to a brawl when The Revival beat him down out into the ring.

- Steve Cutler def. Kenneth Crawford.

- No Way Jose def. Angelo Dawkins.

- Liv Morgan def. Aliyah, though there was nothing but criticism for her finish. Aliyah was rocking some new gear and had different entrance music.

- Shinsuke Nakamura showed up to cut a promo saying he was still hurting from his match with Samoa Joe at Takeover: Brooklyn II but he's champion now and the era of Strong Style has begun.

- Asuka squashed Danielle Kamela in the latter's debut. By squashed I mean she had the Asuka Lock and tap within the first 10 seconds.

- TM 61 def. Tony Nese & Daivari.

- Ember Moon def. Leah Vaughn.

- Shinsuke Nakamura def. Steve Cutler. Samoa Joe was on commentary for this and he bailed in a huff after the match.

- Austin Aries def. Andrade Almas in a long match. No suspenders, though!

- Oney Lorcan def. Tino Sabbatelli with a half crab.

- Samoa Joe showed up to cut a promo. He called out Shinsuke Nakamura and said he wanted his rematch. The champ agreed. Then Joe beat him down. They threw up the "X" and Nakamura did a stretcher job, with William Regal and Corey Graves out to check on him while he was being loaded up.

- Liv Morgan def. Rachael Ellering and cut a promo after calling out Asuka.

- Hideo Itami def. Drew Gulak with, yes, the GTS.

- Authors of Pain def. Local athletes in a squash.

- Bobby Roode def. No Way Jose. They gave him another big entrance, this time with a platform.

Happy to see Leah Vaughan the former Leah Von Dutch show up on the radar again. I thought she was transition out of Wrestling about a year ago. But since then she went back to Wrestling training and essentially got retrained, went on a long tour with STARDOM and is about tour Europe.

Surprised there was no Dusty Classic.

I saw her squash Crazy Mary Dobson at a Ring of Honor show at the end of last October. It was a decent enough match. Glad she's not dead.

This isn't a SPOILER more what I've been told by reliable people. I don't want spoil anyone's fun in the NXT thread. But I've been told that Sanity is Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe and Sawyer Fulton.



So no Tommy End, Big Damo or Crazy Mary Dobson.

Sanity was a faction originally planned for Solomon before he quit apparently.

Perhaps they want some breathing room with the CWC still going on? That and hope they can get the Bucks when their contracts run out in December?

I am completely blanking on who Sawyer Fulton is or what he looks like. I know he's one of the performance center job crew, but every time I think I've got a handle on what we might look like, I realize it's someone else. Has he had any notable squashes or attempted pushes?
