    ROH Manhattan Mayhem was a good show.

    Match of the night was Jay Lethal and Ultimo Guerrero vs Dalton Castle and Volador Jr. You guys should really check it out if you can. He's fat, he's in his mid 40s, and he has a ridiculous mullet but god damn can Ultimo Guerrero still go. He had the crowd eating out of his hands and he displays a high degree of athleticism for a man his age and size.

    Two more championships coming to WWE: Cruiserweight Tag Team and NXT North American.

    So now they have

    Universal Championship
    WWE Championship
    NXT Championship
    Intercontinental Championship
    United States Championship
    Cruiserweight Championship
    UK Championship
    NXT North American Championship
    Raw Tag Team Championship
    Smackdown Tag Team Championship
    Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship
    NXT Tag Team Championship
    Raw Women's Championship
    Smackdown Women's Championship
    NXT Women's Championship

    15 titles is a shitload of titles.

    CMLL has countless titles too, but that's because they do boxing style weight classes and title changes are very rare. But even still, way too many.

    NJPW has too many:
    IWGP Heavyweight
    IWGP Junior Heavyweight
    IWGP Intercontinental
    IWGP United States
    NEVER Openweight
    IWGP Tag Team
    IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team
    NEVER Openweight Six Man

    They should drop the weight classes. Unify the IWGP Heavyweight, Jr Heavyweight, and NEVER Openweight belts. Unify the IWGP and IWGP Jr Heavyweight tag belts.

    ROH is right where they should be:
    World Championship
    World Television Championship
    World Tag Team Championship
    World Six Man Tag Team Championship
    Women of Honor Championship

    I might like to see them bring back the Pure Championship, especially if they get Bryan Danielson later this year, but no more titles after that.

    They should.

    You're telling me you don't think Kushida and Tanahashi could have an amazing match? Okada and Dragon Lee? Naito and Will Ospreay? Kenny Omega and Hiromu Takahashi? Liger and Nagata? Ishii and Jon Gresham? Flip Gordon and Trent Barretta? Toru Yano and Rysuke Taguchi?

    The Jr Heavyweight title is treated as a lesser accomplishment than the Heavyweight title, putting an artificial ceiling on what some of the most talented guys on the roster can do.

    You're suggesting fewer belts, but the same amount of mouths to feed. Think Okada is losing that belt any time soon? Probably not. So what does it do for Kushida, Liger, or an Ospreay to climb up the ladder, and have no hardware to show for it? Narrow the road to success, and you'll either get a hot potato situation or a tired, predictable promotion. When you have different avenues for different types of wrestlers, each champion can shine in their own way.

    How do they justify that?

    I don't follow boxing anymore but that seems strange.

    They have to weigh in before the fight. If one guy doesn't make weight, they either cancel the fight or compensate the other fighter monetarily. But either way, the champ has to defend his belt and if someone who isn't in that weight class beats him, the belt becomes vacant until someone else wins it in a fight between the #1 and #2 contenders.

    To the utter shock of absolutely no one, Jeff Hardy drove drunk and wrecked his car over the weekend.

    Rumor is he'll be edited out of "Ultimate Deletion," and judging from the recent promo, I think he will be.

    I'm digging the Mixed Match Challenge.

    I love that it's just house show shenanigans. I feel that the regular WWE product is lacking in this kind of fun.

    Very much agreed. A house show is a different experience, for any fans who haven't gone to one. A better one, I feel.

    Mixed tag matches where the men and women don't fight each other are dumb and have no tension.

    Why?

    It's all fake anyway. Is Gail Kim beating Rockstar Spud less believable than Rey Mysterio beating Big Show?

    Either keep the men and women separate entirely or let them fight each other. Stupid half measures never work.

    Your rational viewpoint on fake fighting will not protect it from the tragic misunderstanding of social media and public perception. TNA and Lucha Underground can get away with it because they are niche. They are not mainstream, publicly traded companies like WWE.

    We do not live in rational times. We live in times where a heel can't be portrayed as a racist without the writers being criticized for writing a bad guy to be an asshole.

    WWE puts real life woman beaters in their fucking hall of fame. They don't give a shit about perception.

    They just named a tournament after The Fabulous Moolah, who sexually abused, robbed, and pimped out female wrestling prospects to secure bookings for herself for decades.

    So they conveniently ignore things to highlight what they want people to believe. So they manipulate their own promotions and leave out the ugly parts and don't talk about them.

    You are in the minority of people who remember this stuff because this organization can throw anything down the memory hole that they want.

    "After further consideration, we believe it's best to proceed with the name 'WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal.' What remains most important is that this historic match is part of WWE's unwavering commitment to the Women's Division."

    They're so committed to the women's division that the biggest women's match at Wrestlemania is a sideshow attraction mixed gender tag match featuring an authority figure vs a washed up MMA fighter.

    Glad they changed the name. Who seriously thought naming it after Moolah was a good idea, or that it'd fly in this climate?

    Maybe the same guy who named the Warrior Award?

    Or the guy who put Donald Trump, Mike Tyson, Abdullah the Butcher, and Jimmy Snuka in his Hall of Fame?

    The guy who covered up Steve Austin's serial woman beating?
