Total fuckin' silence.

Someone in the Kanyon episode will claim that having him dress up as Boy George and sing Do You Really Want to Hurt Me before getting beaten the poo poo out of him was in no way intended as a comment on his actual homosexuality and that WWE employs people of all backgrounds.

i'm reminded of the randy/liz episode where somebody points out that randy may have pushed her around and yelled at her but he never actually mistreated her. i assume he didn't want to say "punched her" instead. it was a discussion of their kayfabe characters, not irl, but still very awkward to see somebody say and believe that. lots of awkward stuff in that series

Not as bad as the woman who said Moolah got her to sleep with men for money but Moolah wasn't a pimp because then she'd be a whore

Gotta say. I liked Emi well enough during her (hopefully first) run in AEW but watching her occasional stream since she returned to Japan and then her work in the tourney since, I've come around on the fact that she's awesome.

I kinda like her theme. It's like bad video game music played in reverse. It's not good in any real way but it's incredibly memorable and I like it?

Which was all to build to a promo where he declared he wasn't turning heel and was staying a face and acknowledged that the audience wanted it. But, denying the audience a thing they want and acknowledging it is a heel move. That promo was his heel turn, sorry Rarity.

Emi's theme is dissonant in a way that implies it wasn't intentional, just poorly constructed and looping just slightly out of time enough to really create visceral feelings of unease. It could be quite effective music if used in a horror film.

Huski Chocolate is a lifestyle, not only a product. It's about adventure & expedition. Living life to the fullest. It's a perfect recovery drink after training, because of the healthy carbohydrate and protein content, easy to digest and perfect for replenishing tired muscles.

I remember pointing out that they were very much dancing around the notion that he was physically abusive to Liz when the episode aired, and someone (probably correctly) suggested that that was a condition of getting Lanny to participate.
