Another Week of Wrestling #4 (31st May 2021)

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for my second weekly wrestling column. This week, I’ll be looking at the top ten “Wrestler of the Year” candidates for the upcoming event. I’ve read a lot of recaps and previews this week, but I feel like I haven’t seen many great matches yet. I’ll be looking at the classic matches, the shocking upsets, and the dark horse candidates that may have slipped through the cracks. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

This week on Battle of Banners, we had a full house with a variety of matches, including a few title defenses! At the top of the card, we saw the defending champion Kazuya Sorano defend against the surprising Hirohiko Toyohashi! The second title match saw the “Mad Scientist” of the Ring, Kintaro Kanemura face off against the “King of the Lightweights”, Daichi Hashimoto! And as always, we closed the show with the spectacular “King of the Trios” match: the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, the Bullet Club stand-ins, Young Bucks, face off against the 619 Alliance!

This is the last of the four weekly wrestling matches in the story I’m writing. That means I’ll be posting another one sometime in the future. If you’ve been following along, and you’ve enjoyed this story you can come back and read this one a few months later. I’ve posted the first three so far. Which ones do you want to read?

One more week of wrestling No 4 (31 May 2021)


word-image-16210 Thanks for coming! In addition to bringing you This Is Not Wrestling every Thursday and raving about PPVs on YouTube, I’ll also be giving my thoughts on other wrestling events that catch my attention on Monday. I’m Danny Schade, I write for Geeks + Gamers, and it’s another week of struggle! <Previous issue Another wrestling week! It was a busy week and weekend in the wrestling world. An American hero faces an international crisis. AEW announces AEW Rampage, the fourth weekly program to air in the near future. AEW had Friday and Sunday night shows this week. Again, I question the point of staying up until 5:00.


The annual spring cleaning continues, and this year is no different when it comes to pissing people off and blaming them for walking out the door. Tom Phillips has left the WWE, but he hasn’t been forgotten. During his nine years with the company, he has done nothing but work hard and achieve great results. It has also gone through a lot of turbulence. word-image-16211 Whether it was splitting during backstage interviews (so the talent wouldn’t look too small) or jumping on the announcement tables of the various brands, Phillips dodged and danced around everything WWE threw at him. I got Tom at the table. It was clear that it had been put on Michael Cole’s operating system, but it retained much of its own personality. This became very clear when Tom worked with Corey Graves and/or Byron Saxton.

Cody Focus group

At one point, Cody Rhodes explains that he had a diverse focus group that enjoyed his I’ve got a half-black baby coming, so I’m going to fight a half-black man because I want my dad’s old nickname from last week. The next time he dismisses them as mere ideas exchanged between a few yes-men. I’ve said before that he’s all about it, and he’s a novice who will change his mind and his story if he has to. Shame on him for using his unborn child as anything other than the blessing of life it should have been. Some people have bad luck with that too. There is no reason to use your child to gain influence in this way. If you must, flood social media with pictures; that’s what everyone does who wants their kids to sue them when they grow up! Extra points deducted because you keep talking about race and ethnicity, Cody. Nobody had a problem until you started a fire that you could put out yourself in front of a crowd. It’s a shame Anthony Ogogo missed the chance to get lost in all the crowds.

Sloppy Joey

Joey Gianella is still a chubby piece of shit taking over for someone who could have done a much better job. Despite fighting too hard against Adam Page at this week’s Dynamite, both of Janella’s untrained left feet landed in Page’s face. It made Paige look like she was putting up a much harder fight than necessary for a PPV match against the monstrous Bryan Cage. word-image-16213 I know it was an accident, but many such accidents happen when untrained or poorly trained midshipmen are let go. It wouldn’t be hard to have a group of high schoolers showcase the team’s real talent every week, instead of having plebeians with below-average looks win it from your best people. In the long run, it helps no one.

Geographical adjustment

Minutes after I congratulated him last week for his contribution to WWE and deservedly breaking Ric Flair’s record for longest WWE title defense, John Cena went and got in trouble with just about everyone in the world! word-image-16214 As good as he seemed to be, Sina was still the man of the company and was clearly kept on a short leash. He still has it around his neck, but another man is holding it, and his name is now John Xina. As always, you have to be patient to see how this story unfolds. There will be more when Sina is home.

I’m a veteran, get me out of here!

From one person being a hostage to another, Jim Ross is getting some criticism from people on his own team, aka AEW. And this time, it’s not just about the fans. Both Matt Hardy and Chris Jericho have made fun of old-timers that are no longer in the game, but last night on AEW Double or Nothing, JR casually praised Kenny Omega on the air, proclaiming I’M HAVING A GOOD TIME! and statements to that effect. word-image-16215 I mean, I know he was sitting next to Excalibur, but of course he’s used to the noise now. I wrote a bit about this in my article Expressing Yourself: AEW Double or Nothing Review, and in a future edition of That’s Not Wrestling, we’ll show in detail how the ungrateful bastards of Amatuer Everything Wrestling behave towards people they could learn a lot from! I just hope it doesn’t corrode as badly as it looks. Take a look at this… That’s it for this week. Evaluate and discuss! Don’t forget to follow the This Is Not Wrestling show published every Thursday on Keep it up, and I’ll see you next Monday to discuss #AnotherWeekOfWrestling!
