He's wrong about the NFL Starting Line Up toys being good. They were just for display, you couldn't move them. That's why people just played Madden on Sega.

We got some soccer ones over here where they were on a green molded base which look very similar to the Starting Line Ups. I assume its the same company who made them. I forget their name but I do vaguely recall they were officially licensed and there was the England team and a few others.

As it relates to wrestling, the biggest news of the week by far is that Kevin Reilly, who greenlit AEW as one of his pet projects and actually was one of the keys in the creation of the organization, is out at WarnerMedia. Reilly and Bob Greenblatt were announced as being out today and Casey Bloys and Ann Sarnoff have been promoted to oversee content. Bloys was the President of HBO Programming and will now oversee HBO Max, TNT, TBS and truTV. Bloys, by coincidence, went to Freedom High in Bethlehem, PA at the same time as Dwayne Johnson and greenlit "Ballers," although he and Johnson were not friends in high school.

It is far too early to know what this means for AEW going forward. It may not be bad news, but it is most definitely not good news in the sense Reilly was strongly behind AEW. In fact, the entire idea of AEW came from a conversation Tony Khan ad Reilly had in the spring of 2018 when Reilly told Khan how much money WWE programming rights were going for and Khan had seen the business and interest level of the Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho match at the Tokyo Dome and knew both were free agents, and that a lot of key contracts would be expiring at the end of 2018 in wrestling. The stuff with Cody Rhodes and me with the tweet before that time did lead to All In, and the success of All In was definitely a huge part of the equation as well as Khan talking about the success of that show, and his ability to sign the key people, was a key factor in Reilly agreeing to take the chance on giving them a prime time show on TNT. But Khan thinking of getting into wrestling was prior to All In.

Going back to the corporate changes at WarnerMedia I would think that unless an executive doesn't want wrestling on TNT (like Jamie Kellner did back in 2001) they should be fine. They have consistently rated highly in the 18-34 demo and their early success got Dynamite renewed til 2023.

If ratings were tanking and they were doing say 500,000 or less viewers then yes I think there would be a big issue. But they drew 901,000 on Wednesday & if they get on a run their fan base could grow where they are doing 1m or so weekly. So unless the bottom falls out ratings wise I don't see any negative change(s) regarding AEW on TNT.

The new guy went to high school with Dwayne Johnson, so he should respect wrestling.

Good PPV. Kenny Omega is compelling as hell and I loved the main event. MJF is a money prospect with a few more years of seasoning - reminds me of Ric Flair in 1977/78.

Just saw Anna Jay's last match on Youtube. She officially has *IT* and could be THE draw for AEW with a few more years of hard work. The improvement she's shown in just a few months is nothing short of astounding.
