    It's been awhile since any updates have been posted - looks like January is the month of engagement announcements though - first Charlotte Flair and Andrade, then Tessa Blanchard and Daga, and now Nikki Bella and her former Dancing With the Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev.

    There has been an interesting development regarding Lars Sullivan. I don't want to violate site rules so I'll post the part that I can:

    Several months ago a bunch of his old social media posts were dug up, showing some generally racist/sexist/homophobic posts. Last week his past doing gay porn was revealed.

    Well.... now that is one of the weirdest turn of events of all time. As always - i say let's just be careful with how deep we go into conversation on it. But I was seriously just wondering what the hell happened to the guy.

    He got hurt in a match back in June with Lucha House Party and would be out for 6 to 9 months with a knee injury. I imagine *if* he comes back, it wouldn't be until after Mania.

    Maybe they will bring him back and let him be gay. I do wonder if something like that would even work because it would be so hard to pull off without offending people. It would bring ratings that is for sure.

    I think we'll soon be wondering what "Dick Sully" is doing in the Impact Zone.

    I gave up watching NJPW. There is great wrestling everywhere. Storytelling means the most to me. But i've been following along.

    What's your take on it? Good? People said it dragged.

    And i've been a fan of using Wrestlemania as a 2 night extravaganza. Similar to how a festival works. It'd be like a wrestling festival.

    But the sound of it - it doesn't work as well.

    They're going to do it. It will completely bury all the indy promotions that leech off of them, which will of course be more important to Vince than putting together 2 good shows.

    Great shows. Naito's win over Okada was fantastic from an athletic perspective and a storytelling perspective. NJPW storytelling is so superior to what RAW and Smackdown offer up. NJPW storytelling feels real while WWE storytelling, outside of NXT, feels like something coming from a writing team that was rejected by Nickelodeon.

    Lots of people raving about that long story telling moment. Im proud of NJPW. Wish down the road their USA front is part of working with AEW. Just to make some mad money and also get some American play.

    Alex Shelley is with NXT and will be tagging with Kushida starting next week. Despite seeming being around forever, Shelley is only 36. Good signing for NXT.

    I assume we all know that wasn’t Motor City Machine Guns, right?

    Would be totally insane to think Kushida was in MCMG huhuhuhuh

    There was a blip from Meltzer that Io Shirai was feeling a little bit homesick; I didn't know she was engaged to Evil. Meltzer also said that he'd heard that Stardom might pony up big bucks to get Io and Kairi Sane back to Japan.
