After some downtime in between tournaments, I’m back and ready to write another weekly wrap-up. This one’s a bit different from the others, since I don’t have a full set of data to work with. I can’t just write about the matches I went to, because there were only three of them: 1. @Dent (L) vs. @Tobias (W) – Though Tobias’ sprite’s animation is still a bit all over the place, he’s still the better wrestler of the two. However, @Dent appeared to get the better of the majority of their contests, and it even looked like he won their last match, which Tobias was furious to see. 2. @Tobias (L

#14 of Another Week of Wrestling (16th August 2021)
Thank you for coming along with me! I’ll be mouthing off on a Monday about other wrestling events that grab my attention, in addition to giving you That’s Not Wrestling every Thursday and raving about PPVs on YouTube. This is Another Week of Wrestling, and I’m Danny Damage, writing for Geeks + Gamers.
<—Last week’s installment of Another Week of Wrestling!
John Cena vs. Roman Reigns
John Cena and Roman Reigns are gearing up for their SummerSlam match this Saturday, and they had a heated exchange on Smackdown last Friday. Nikki Bella and Dean Ambrose were addressed, and Cena even hinted at CM Punk by blowing a kiss to the camera. However, not everything went as planned, as Cena’s comeback has exposed some flaws in Roman’s armor.
Roman Reigns isn’t exactly in danger yet, but the more he speaks and tries to be like The Rock, the closer he comes to becoming a “suffering succotash.” On Smackdown, Cena, in my view, ran circles over Reigns, with Roman waffling towards the finish. I’m curious to see where this one goes, mostly since Cena has a chance to surpass Ric Flair’s championship reign record now that he won’t have to look him in the eyes when it occurs. I’m still undecided on how I feel about the Taiwan situation. Regardless, I’m certain they’ll put up a fantastic performance.
Vince McMahon vs. Triple H
According to Dave Meltzer, Triple H is being blamed by individuals backstage for “NXT losing the Wednesday Night War versus AEW.” Sorry, I should have begun that sentence with “Dave Meltzer said,” so you’d know how much salt to put in with the rumor. It’s been said that Triple H was unaware of the company’s most recent round of releases, which I can believe.
First and foremost, NXT is WWE’s third-largest program, having traded “victories” with AEW until WWE relocated it to a Tuesday night slot. Nobody “won” anything, in my opinion. Despite both programs failing to retain a million viewers, I guess the shift to Tuesday was enough for AEW to proclaim themselves the victor. Second, I would never dispute that there has been, is, and will very certainly always be friction within the McMahon family, but something doesn’t add up here, and it isn’t the McMahons.
What makes me suspect is AEW’s spinster putting this out there when there have been rumblings for a long now – murmurs that things aren’t quite what the AEW EVPs were expecting. Keep an eye on things, but I wouldn’t be shocked if this is just Uncle Dave’s projection.
Max Caster vs. Mr. McKhan
“Platinum” Max Caster was one of the best things on AEW; on some weeks, he was the only thing that kept me watching entire episodes of AEW Dark/Dark Elevation. With his most recent pre-match smack talk session, the rookie wrestling rapper has gotten himself into some serious water. Caster’s contentious rap was first deleted from the show and reuploaded to YouTube; even professional manchild Tony Khan joined in and overreacted to Peacock. Caster was banned for two months and ordered to “sensitivity training” as a result of his efforts.
Caster has been quiet on social media since then (which is unusual for him) and has just revealed that he is auctioning off parts of his AEW ring that he no longer wears. Hopefully, it’s only a term, or he’s already discovered something better. He’s a gifted young man, and I wish him the best of luck. Anyway, that’s the news out of the way; now it’s my turn to speak plainly about the issue…
I get that the joke wasn’t his greatest and that it wasn’t to everyone’s liking, but he’s cramming words and allusions into a freestyle about his opponent in under a minute. He’s also attempting to persuade the audience to scream “oooooohhhh” and suck air through their teeth without having to backflip and fall on his head. How are individuals expected to go over AS FUCKING HEELS if they aren’t willing to push the boundaries and receive fire from the audience? So far, Caster has been used to generate heat and get beaten on television… well, on YouTube.
That’s not the only thing: the program was recorded!!! It would be on Caster to behave/control himself and properly utilize the trust he’s been granted if it were broadcast live, but that isn’t the case here. When the Kabuki Theatre of Fake Outrage appeared on social media, someone in the back watched it, agreed that it was OK to broadcast it, and then left.
I’m having memories of the NWA kicking Jim Cornette off the program because of a joke that was laughed at and then left in the show; then they threw Jim under the bus because two blue-haired land-whales had meltdowns and complained. Did we already forgotten what happened with the NWA’s former vice president and sidekick? I have a feeling something similar is going on here, and fuck Tony Khan for dumping this on his talent in this way. Tony’s song would be drastically different if the only response he got was, “OMG, it’s the new attitude period, fuck yes.”
Tony and AEW are big on optics – you know, the whole “worrying about what other people think of you” thing. Because of the Domino’s issue, I believe Tony still feels like a jerk… Maybe it’s his history of hiring criminals, or maybe it’s the fact that new unpleasant accusations about some of his employees are circulating. Whatever it is, he’s proving (at least to me) that he’s completely insane with power and a lack of limits, and he’s making it up as he goes.
Tony The Twerp said that he would personally approve Caster’s freestyle before he entered the arena. This time, Tony was too preoccupied to do so, and as a result, everything went apart. *no expression*
“Max Caster’s rap on Dark last night was awful. I wasn’t there at the time he did it, and it wasn’t during Dynamite. When Max said this rap, I was out back. To be honest, I hadn’t heard it till last night. That should have been detected throughout the editing phase. We re-aired the program with that cut out, but it shouldn’t have aired in the first place. I place such strict controls on Dynamite that anything like this would never have occurred there since I constantly go through Max’s raps with him. And, to be honest, I don’t script or write wrestler promos for Dynamite other for the bullet points I provide. So that shouldn’t have occurred in this instance. And further forward, I’ll be handling the editing of Dark and Elevation on my own. I was already working on Dynamite and Rampage, and I’m a busy guy.” On Busted Open Radio, Tony Khan
Tony believes he is so important to the television side of the company that if he isn’t there to keep problems at bay and rescue the day, everything would fall apart. I realize that he is a major gear in the system, but you could replace him with anybody other whose father owns a swimming pool full of cash and the equation would stay the same. Tony is being exploited for his money, and I’m sure he realizes it. More than likely, he’s simply put all of that aside for the time being while cosplaying as the offspring of Vince McMahon and Herb Abrams.
You pampered little idiot, get over yourself. You’re a spaced-out, dumb-looking moron. I stated before that I’d dealt with and seen the “boss’s son” attitude in the past. At the very least, many of those bellends had done some physical work and had gone through some character development. Tiny Tony still behaves as if he’s still nursing and is simply fast-tracking a clone of the WWE’s model… but with him in charge. Everyone around Tony is clearly protecting their own interests by praising him how wonderful of a job he’s doing, with some even proclaiming him Booker of the Year!
AEW has done pretty much everything Tony claimed they wouldn’t do, including his promises of never appearing on TV! I know what you’re thinking: “But it was on YouTube; that doesn’t count!” and other such thoughts. Look what occurred on the first episode of AEW Rampage, and part of me accepted it for a few minutes simply to give it time. Tony was unable to restrain himself. Not only did he have to come out and appear on TV after Luchabama Man was awarded a participation reward contract for losing his bout, but he also had to come out and appear on TV himself.
Accident & Emergency Wrestling further proves that “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know!”
That concludes this week’s activities. Think about it and talk about it! Remember to keep an eye out for “That’s Not Wrestling!” every Thursday on GeeksandGamers.com. Take care, and I’ll see you on Monday to talk about #AnotherWeekOfWrestling!

Today I went to the gym. It was a slow day for me. I don’t go to the gym as often as I should, but I do try to keep up with it. I just have a busy schedule. I had to run an errand after I got to the gym. I got my nails done. I don’t go to the nail salon as often as I should either. I have a busy schedule. I left the nail salon and headed to my post office box to drop off some paperwork. It was another slow day. I sat down at a table in the food court to eat my late lunch. I had a sandwich, and I ate it with a fork, because I didn’t want to deal with the mess of. Read more about professional wrestling and let us know what you think.
