Thoughts:

If you're wondering why I never seem to cover NWA in these, there is actually a good reason. I don't watch Powerrr, which somehow doesn't have a pirate bodybuilder theme, 

This week's Ring of Honor saw the next chapter in one of my favorite ongoing rivalries as Demonic Flamita and Rey Horus went to battle in a no disqualifications match. They worked hard and delivered on the gimmick and the expectations for sure, and the entire thing was fantastic. After his big victory, Flamita seemed to tease a shot at Bandido, as enforced by the commentary team.

On IMPACT this week, we had some fun shit.

Sabin and Callihan was good shit. A very fun match to kick a show off with and a fun little feud.

Bey and Finlay was good. I LOVE Bey in the Bullet Club. LOVE it. But yeah, this was pretty good even with the cheap finish.

Christian and Ace Austin shared a moment after Dreamer put over the new champ. I loved Captain Charisma telling a fan he was wrong about Ace. Oh, and can we cut the WHAT shouts? I love that these two are going to have a match and honestly I'm really enjoying IMPACT a lot this year.

Swann and Mack took on Anderson and Gallows in a pretty basic main. The Good Brothers are a good team in the right situations and a terrible one in others.
