Gunner Miller v Fred Yehi Announced For ACTION Wrestling Show 2 (Friday, June 29, 2018 Tyrone, GA)

ACTION Wrestling's second show is coming up on Friday, June 29th in Tyrone, GA, and they announced an absolute banger last night as Gunner Miller will take on Fred Yehi.

ACTION went on to say that this fantastic match is NOT the main event. If you saw what the environment was like on Powerbomb TV for the first show, you know this will be special.

All ACTION Wrestling shows are benefit shows, and this one is no different. Directly from their Twitter feed (@WrestleACTION1)...
All proceeds from the show will benefit Advo-Kids CASA, which is the voice for children in the juvenile court system!
If you cannot make the trip to Tyrone, GA on June 29th then you have the option of checking this one out LIVE on Powerbomb TV.

Friday The 13th: The Game May 2018 Patch Notes

The big patch/engine update we've been waiting for drops tomorrow.

Here are the patch notes.

Andrade "Cien" Almas In A Tremendous Squash Match

Really enjoyed this match last night. The local competitor's hope spot, and being violently put down after that was superb.

I think I have a soft spot for this type of match because a) it's a change of pace post-Monday Night War Era, and b) it's a throwback to the days when I first fell in love with professional wrestling in the early to mid-1980s.

Almas and Vega are absolute money, and the sky is the limit for the duo.

Roman Reigns Got A New Shirt

Now you, yes you, can Unleash The Big Dog. Roman Reigns "Unleash The Big Dog" Authentic T-Shirt

I don't know if I'll get this one, but I like the way the dog looks on it. I am definitely OK with more merch with that logo on it. Maybe he should include it on his vest at some point.

It's also kind of surprising that they didn't include It's My Yard on it somewhere.

Ember Moon Gets An Unfortunate Shirt

This has got to be one of the worst shirts WWE has produced in recent memory. Woof.

My WWE 2K19 Wish List

With WWE 2K19 officially being announced for a fall 2018 release, it got me to thinking about what I want from this year's game.

I am pretty easy to please so I am not in the camp that wants the game completely overhauled or it to become a non-annual release.

My wish list is simple:
  • An easier way to sort and manage rosters

  • The ability to import/export date back and forth between Exhibition and Universe Mode

  • Fix Roman's championship entrance, I actually assign him Orton's instead for now
Those are the main things. Really having a shiny new roster every year is good enough for me, but that plus those three things make it a success for me.

Strange Former Wrestler Story

All I know about Magee is I believe he had some "next big thing" hype based on his look, and athleticism. He didn't really pan out. I've seen him discussed in a variety of places before, but mainly WCMB.

After a strenuous 2 seconds of Googling, I found you a match between Magee and Arn Anderson from 1998.

WWE 2K19 Officially Announced

Magnum P.I. Coming To CBS

This article is referring to it as a reboot so it's not a sequel or continuation of the original series starring Tom Selleck. I will give this a shot as I enjoyed Magnum P.I. as a kid. I hope they remix the original theme as it is fantastic.

I own a Detroit Tigers hat because I like the logo. I told my wife if anyone ever asked me if I was a Tigers fan I'd tell them, "No, I'm a Magnum P.I. fan." I never got to use that line, but SHE DID. Stole my joke right out from under me as we passed a couple from Detroit and they asked her about my hat. I'm still furious about this.

Brock Lesnar To Reign Until WrestleMania 35?

There was a rumor floating around on Twitter this weekend that WWE intends to have Brock Lesnar hold the Universal Title until WrestleMania 35.

My first reaction to this was: WHY?!?!?!? My second of course was, "Where did this 'report' come from?" and all that.

Let's focus on that first reaction though as we know a lot of stuff that gets floated on social media is nonsense and/or wishful thinking.

I legitimately do not see any benefit in dragging this title reign out any further. Lesnar as champion worked for me when I thought the end game was Roman Reigns toppling him at WrestleMania 34. Once that was off the table, and it didn't end at Greatest Royal Rumble I have almost completely lost interest in it.

As we kicked this around on Wrestling Twitter the question came up, "Who should even beat Lesnar at this point?"

My response was: BRAUN, Seth Rollins, or Daniel Bryan.
