All that said, Jericho has been bringing it lately sort of. What I mean by "sort of" is that I still have just about zero interest in seeing him wrestle, but his character work has been absolutely on point.
His pairing with Kevin Owens has been entertaining and always makes me think of this. The "Stupid Idiot," "The List, " and "IT" stuff has been hilarious as well.
So I say all of this to praise Chris Jericho since I've been hard on him in the past, to acknowledge there is still a gulf between his character and in-ring work, and basically to show you that I'm not completely inflexible as it relates to my opinions on things.

- Roman Reigns can't wrestle
- Nikki Bella is not an asset to the SmackDown women's division
Here's a new one that is aggravating me...
AJ can't cut a promo is as tired and wrong as Roman can't wrestle.— FreebirdSTF (@S_ATL_Wrestling) September 17, 2016
...and A1 and SAW's Norko agrees.
Cannot agree more! He's proven time and time again that isn't the case https://t.co/2mEoMsrx93— TheBottomLine (@TheBottomLine) September 17, 2016
@S_ATL_Wrestling It's an argument I am so sick and tired of, just bc he has a southern accent It's believed he can't cut a promo. Not true— TheBottomLine (@TheBottomLine) September 17, 2016

I've got enough (too many probably) Reigns figures, but I cannot pass that one up. Will probably pass on Elite 45 though.— FreebirdSTF (@S_ATL_Wrestling) September 16, 2016

Not a great job on the box on this one. Hopefully the second one is pristine so I can open this one. #toyspotting pic.twitter.com/5jWfuwLLid— FreebirdSTF (@S_ATL_Wrestling) September 13, 2016
UPDATE: This is now a tribute to Willie B. If you don't know about Willie B., he was Atlanta's beloved gorilla from Zoo Atlanta. He has long-since passed, but he has a statue there now.
Some of the card has been announced and we've got Odinson v Jimmy Rave and Zack Sabre, Jr. v Martin Stone.
Not sure if I will be able to make this due to my anniversary being that weekend, but I am hoping I can. Either way it is quite the return from hiatus for AWE.
I neglected to mention that this card is being referred to as The First Battle of New Atlanta.

At some point during the first three main show matches they did a backstage angle where Bray Wyatt was found standing over an injured Randy Orton. Reportedly, Orton is not cleared to wrestle and that's how they are avoiding that match tonight.
- Dean Ambrose (c) v AJ Styles for the WWE World Title--I cannot connect to WWE Network along with some other odd network related things so it may be a while before I get to watch this and share any thoughts. Hang tight...
Finally got back on. Remember when I said that Nakamura beating Samoa Joe for the NXT Title was a great moment, but the match was good? That's kind of what I thought of tonight.

As a matter of fact I will probably only get that Seth Rollins in the white gear. I am passing on Roman Reigns because I want that TRU Exclusive WrestleMania 32 Roman Reigns with the gold accented gear. I also have two Roman Elites already and a Basic that I got out of the package.

I want to believe that Andy Kaufman successfully faked his death. What I could never figure out was why that was. It finally dawned on me as a I drove to the office one day and this song came on the radio.

The party line appears to be that it was poorly labeled on a reel titled "Omni Live Events". Others have insinuated that Paul Ellering had the footage and finally turned it over to WWE, possibly in exchange for favors as it related to his daughter's (Rachael Ellering) promising wrestling career.
Honestly, it doesn't matter to me about the hows and whys, although it adds a layer of intrigue to this story, I am just glad I finally got to lay eyes on this thing. At this point I guess I should share that The Last Battle of Atlanta was a cage match with Tommy "Wildfire" Rich taking on "Mad Dog" Buzz Sawyer. The cage was a bit unique in that it had a ceiling. Sawyer's manager, Paul Ellering, was in a cage hanging from the ceiling to keep him out of the match as well. The other stipulation was that Ole Anderson (a face at that time) got a match with Ellering in the cage if Rich won. That's the setting for this match.
All that said, I watched it yesterday with my son when I got home. Did it live up to the hype? Of course not. Given it's legendary status there was absolutely no way it could. Was it one heck of a fun, bloody brawl? Absolutely.

Looking forward to getting back there and supporting this top flight promotion.
