It still amuses me that in wrestling, despite all the writers and the spot memorizers, there are still dudes that can naturally make an rear end of themselves so completely that it makes all the meticulous planning look hackneyed.

yeah, that's why I'm glad Ace Romero got the Callihan stink off of him and was able to get an AEW looksee spot. He's very cool.

I really hope Callihan et al get their poo poo sorted because the Sami I met was funny and cool but the Sami you keep hearing about is a terrible human.

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.


I randomly saw a bit of one of those Santino/Atout things the other day and he was basically saying how he makes racist jokes in his training and you should just take them because its his house and he's just joking. He seems pretty toxic and he doesn't seem to have much of a filter on that Twitch thing.

He also seems to randomly sway between "kayfabe" and "shoot". And get routinely distracted by his phone. He just doesn't seem like he knows there's a camera or something.

edit: I listened and weirdly he does mention wrestling women in WWE and says its cool when its Beth Phoenix beating him or Awesome Kong or Nia Jax but that he hurt Maria. He also randomly mentioned that Tessa Blanchard vs Joey Ryan is a good matchup in the middle of lots of rambling about biotruths, transgenderism vs feminism, and how racism is statistically insignificant.

Santino posted:

“If there’s a girl out there that says ‘this guy’s giving us attitude, I’m gonna step in and fight this guy because I saw that women can fight men because of intergender wrestling.’ And she goes out there and lips off and this guy’s a mental case and he just cracks her with his fist and shatters an orbital and busts her lip … and she wouldn’t have done it — perhaps — beforehand, because she didn’t get this inflated sense of confidence because of intergender wrestling.”

I can't even figure out if he's a full blown chud or what because he doesn't seem opposed to the "transgender movement" or "gender equality". He says they're "good causes." But he also basically seems to be forming all his opinions on the grounds of spending his life thinking "don't hit girls" and how he can't figure out of that would make him sexist now.

He's definitely a confused old man at a changing world. That's for sure.

That quote is really loving awful and Santino can go and get hosed for it.

Like, just apply the quote to boys and see how hollow it is, it's basically just saying that women should not have aggressive role models because there could always be a guy who bashes their faces in, what the gently caress.

Yeah, no, don't get me wrong. He's hosed up and wrong. I was just saying that like listening to his overall rambling its all over the place rather than some clear Right drive or something. I'm definitely not defending him and I can't begin to figure out what his overall philosophy is beyond just some archaic ideas of gender rules and a confused dickish stubbornness at the idea of changing them.

edit: And like even to make it worse, I actually think that quote is kind of incomplete of the context, just because Santino's rambling was all over the place. If I remember right that was following up on him talking about how he thinks women's self defense classes are bad because they give women a false sense of confidence. Or something. It was backwards and stupid and misogynistic but also just kind of incoherrent nonsense.

And again, the weirdest part of it is that he came away saying Tessa Blanchard vs Joey Ryan was good because Tess is "a beast" and Ryan's style plays well to it. So he was just rambling offensive poo poo for nothing.

If a dude is mad rambling, and his ramblings include mad sexist statements, the fact that he is mad rambling does not excuse the sexist stuff.
