In the news: Nick Aldis and if either WWE or AEW is a better fit if either wants to sign him this time around. Then THE LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM: ICE COLD TAKES on Crown Jewel; promos from Iyo/Asuka, Xavier and MJF to the Saraya/Britt promo that did more harm than good. The ridiculous lack of telling a story in the Seth Rollins/Bobby Lashley/Austin Theory angle, the lack of planning for Full Gear. PLUS: Chris tells a Gallagher story.
