Battleground 2017

Calling this show a hot mess would drastically overestimate the temperature of the mess.

Preacher: "On The Road", "Mumbai Sky Tower", "Damsels"

Three in one, just like this post!
I'm massively behind on Season 2 of Preacher, but I have finally gotten the first three episodes knocked off. The good news is that after delivering a proof-of-concept prequel in Season 1, they're hewing much closer to the pace and tone of the comic in Season 2. The bad news is sorta the same.

PREDICTIONS: Battleground 2017

Battleground! Another PPV! Pretend to give a shit!

Motherfuckin' Lucha Underground! "Fade To Black"

Fun fact: GLOW also had "Dare" and "Wolf" in it.
Round 2 continues, with a surprise that messes with my predictions but makes me happy.

NXT (7/19)

And punch punch punch...
The first half hour of this week's NXT featured some of the best wrestling WWE's had in months. Then it went downhill.

205 Live (7/17)

Fun fact: The WWE's cruiserweight merch still consists of one TJ Perkins shirt.
It's always fun to see a match win the stagnant, uncaring 205 LIve crowd over. Shame it was the first match on the card.

Smackdown Live (7/18)

The romantic tension is off the charts.
The Battleground go-home show continues Smackdown's recent trend of simultaneously having the best talent and also being the most xenophobic, jingoistic show WWE has to offer.
