First Look At The Rock's Titan Games

This looks positively wild. The Rock claims in the video that all the competitions are inspired by workouts he does too.

It's coming to NBC in January. I will definitely check this out.

Who Should Take The Universal Title From Brock Lesnar?

Due to my dissatisfaction with Brock v BRAUN at Crown Jewel I did not do a piece on Brock Lesnar winning the Universal Title. The reason I didn't was it was absolutely going to come off like the whiny trash I don't want to read.

If you are curious what I do not like about Brock Lesnar as a top champion, the piece I wrote about why I wanted Brock over BRAUN before Crown Jewel explains it pretty well. 

That said, Brock is champion now so it did get me to thinking about a satisfying way to end that reign at some point.  I settled on what I want, and WWE has already started to lay the groundwork for it.

Before I reveal who that is I need to get one little piece of business out of the way and it relates to Roman Reigns.  Roman is obviously my favorite wrestler, but he's also had to step away from the business for the time-being due to the return of his leukemia.

Due to this indefinite leave from the ring, I do not and will not include Roman in any ideas I share here. My stance is that he's gone and will remain gone until a) we see an announced return or b) he suddenly returns.  Until we have one of those two scenarios you will not see me mentioning him as it relates to him wrestling or being involved in storylines.

With that little bit of housekeeping out of the way I will tell you exactly who I want to see win the Universal Title, and when I want to see it.

Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35

Now I do not love the idea of a Brock Lesnar title reign that lasts until Mania 35 for a lot of reasons I have already covered, but looking at where we are post-Crown Jewel I think this would be the right call.  To be completely clear, I would have gone with BRAUN as champion at Crown Jewel, but I am just looking at where we are right now today.

Right now Seth Rollins is absolutely the man that should put The Beast down, and there's no better place than Mania 35.  Pushing it until then lets you wrap up Seth v Dean Ambrose first, and then gives you the big feelgood moment on the biggest show of the year.

Billy Buck's Opponent Has Been Named For ACTION Wrestling 5 (Friday, December 7, 2018 Tyrone, GA)

I was out and about doing fatherly things last night so I missed the tease to this announcement, but when I saw the announcement itself it completely POPPED me.

Courtesy of ACTION Wrestling's brand new YouTube is Billy Buck's opponent for ACTION Wrestling 5 in Tyrone, GA on Friday, December 7, 2018. It's a historic announcement too...

Why is this historic? It's the first time that ACTION has brought in someone who is NOT HUMAN, PCO (@PCOQuebecer)!

The reactions from South ATL Wrestling were pretty similar. Norko (@TheBottomLine) said, "Oh my word. It's on now!" I was a little more pointed with, "LMAO. Enjoy that one Billy Butt!"

UPDATE: Billy Buck (@BillyBuck28) has weighed-in on our comments, "I still want to punch you in the mouth!"

My 11 year old son saw the video and was glad to see that Billy "Butt" was getting the treatment he deserved from the ACTION office. He also really liked the style of the video and I did too.

This show will be a banger because remember we will also have the inaugural ACTION Wrestling Champion named that night (AC Mack v Cain Justice v Ike Cross v Slim J).

If you haven't started following ACTION on all social media accounts you need to get on that and ALL those links are available after the jump.

Tickets are not on sale yet for ACTION Wrestling 5 on December 7, 2018 in Tyrone, GA. Keep an eye here and on for those though. You won't want to miss that show as it will be historic.

ACTION Wrestling 5 is a benefit for Toys For Tots which is an organization close to The CEO's heart as he served in the USMC.

Shoots Fired Episode 5 Featuring Yours Truly

It was my pleasure to be asked to join T.O. Myron Fancher on his Shoots Fired Podcast (part of the Tapped Out Wrestling Podcast network).

Honestly, I only knew him a little bit before this show, but found out he's a really chill dude who has a similar relationship and appreciation for pro-wrestling that I do.

I would also like to apologize for how I shot this, that weekend was very busy and I did not get my setup done the way I'd like. You may enjoy this more if you just listen to the audio.

We talked about a variety of things such as ACTION Wrestling, our relationship with independent wrestling, and even the joys and camaraderie of being a wrestling fan.

Hope you enjoy...

Linked above, but here's the official site for the Tapped Out Wrestling Podcast network again. Give them your support!

Coach Mike Leach Walks Almost 4 Miles To Work Every Day

Mike Leach walks to work because of course he does. This man is a national treasure.

I thought Tennessee hit a homer when it was rumored that he was going to be their next coach. I think Jeremy Pruitt will do a fine job though.

Anyhow, here's Coach Leach...

AS A's my favorite Mike Leach thing on YouTube. He gives dating advice.

A Geoffrey's Toy Box Has Been Spotted

A Geoffrey's Toy Box has been spotted, and it's at a...Kroger.

That's something. We will have to wait and see where this goes I suppose.

Charting The Territories: An Al Getz Project

Al Getz (@AlGetzWrestling) unveiled a new project he's been working on  yesterday.

It's called "Charting The Territories," and in simplest terms it's an effort to bring analytics to professional-wrestling.

One aspect I really like is the look of the data itself. Instead of just listing the decimals for SPOT, he adds a couple of extra rows to show where gaps between wrestlers are. It gives it more of a tiered approach that enhances the data a bit.

Partial Amarillo 1966 Part 2

Anyhow, if you're into analytics in other sports, and love pro-wrestling, I think you'll get a kick out of this site.  If nothing else, Al would like you to see it and as we all know...."What Al wants, Al GETZ!"

Charting the Territories is also on Facebook!

Announcements From ACTION Wrestling 4

Two big announcements came out of ACTION Wrestling 4 on Friday, October 26th.

The first is that the field is set for the match that will determine the inaugural ACTION Wrestling Champion. This match will take place on December 7, 2018 at the Roger Spencer Community Center in Tyrone, GA.

The men competing in the match are as follows:
  1. AC Mack

  2. Cain Justice

  3. Ike Cross

  4. Slim J
Match should be a real treat, and the crowd in Tyrone will be happy with two of those options and REALLY dissatisfied with the other two. Let's hope Slim or Ike prevail!

The next BIG announcement is really incredible. ACTION Wrestling had it's very first show on Friday, April 27, 2018. Despite this short run they have been given a HUGE opportunity and will be a part of Powerbomb.TV Family Reunion on Thursday, April 4th at 12 PM in Jersey City, NJ.

This date and location is important if you don't already know because that means ACTION Wrestling is going to be part of the huge slate of independent wrestling shows that run in the area of WrestleMania during WrestleMania Week!

Here is ACTION CEO, Matt Griffin, informing the crowd in Tyrone, GA of this HUGE development!

Tickets are not on sale yet for ACTION Wrestling 5 on December 7, 2018 in Tyrone, GA. Keep an eye here and on for those though. You won't want to miss that show as it will be historic.

ACTION Wrestling 5 is a benefit for Toys For Tots which is an organization close to The CEO's heart as he served in the USMC.

Other news of note is that ACTION Wrestling has announced the following shows as well:

  • ACTION Wrestling 6 - Friday, February 8, 2019 - Roger Spencer Community Center

  • ACTION Wrestling 7 - Friday, March 22, 2019 - Sandy Creek High School (Mine and Norko's alma mater!)
