“The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new”–Socrates

My phone has been exploding all day about the bloodletting of talent and agents in “other places”. Everyone wants to know if any of the newly freed talent will head to AEW. I wish I knew.

I was feeling a bit homesick for my 22 years of living in the desert. To help with that, I made a trip to our local gardening/hardware store and now my desk is decorated with “Foley”, my little Cactus. Smile.

This night is going to be awesome. We started with a video promo from Jake Roberts about the TNT Championship. Roberts cuts some of the best promos in the business. Jake made it clear that they had their sights set of Cody. Colt Cabana is just a sacrificial lamb for Archer’s goal. Jake said Lance is “p*ssed off” that he HAD to go to Japan to make a living.

Sweet. Chris Jericho and Tony Schiavone were at the announce desk. They are so good together. Tony ran down the night’s card.

We got a video package about Colt Cabana.

Lance then moves on to the next round. I’m betting we see Lance vs Cody in the finals.

Dr. Britt Baker cut a promo from her dental office. She went off on Shida for the bloody face that she got from a wild knee tothe face. Baker has a broken nose.

We got predictions from various “experts” about the Jake Hager vs Jon Moxley match. I can’t imagine that Moxley will let go of he belt, so soon.

Taz did an analysis of Jake Hager’s move set. This was so cool. Reminds me of the days at the old school.

Cassandra Golden vs Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D.

Dang, Cassandra is gorgeous. Shida was watching from ringside.  Pineapple Pete was back to cheer on the talent. I like the guy. Team him with No Way Jose, now that Jose is a free agent.

Baker frinned at her foe and hit a Superkick. Britt sat on the apron and taunted her opponent. Britt then choked Cass on the middle rope and then the bottom rope. Lockjaw!

Your WInner (By Submission): Dr. Britt Baker

Sammy asked for the microphone. Sammy bragged about how great he is and how well he is going to do in the tournament. Sammy said he would beat the “S**t” out of Darby Allin. I hate this profanity. It is a cheap way to draw hat. Sammy went to attack Suge, again, and Darby made the save.

Before we get into the big match, I want to take a second to say my personal “Thank You” to the great men and women who work their tails off at the various grocery stores to keep the shelves stocked. This is a tough time but these “honest heroes” are the glue that is keeping us together.  I tip my baseball cap to you all with much love and respect.
