Another interesting thing: Templario and Soberano Jr were in a no time limit single fall match. That's an unusual format for CMLL, who mostly run 2-out-of-3 falls matches. When they do single fall matches, they're generally relámpago (lightning) matches with a 10 minute time limit.
I'm catching up on last night's CMLL show (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6mPew0s3wE). One interesting thing to note: Okumura was on the show. I don't know if that means anything for the NJPW/CMLL relationship, which he apparently is in charge of, but it's interesting to note nonetheless.
And #CMLL is just a blast, IMO. The crowd always love it, and they generally put on a pretty good show. For me, it's low stakes fun that I can tune into for free at the same time every week, which is perfect.
(Incidentally, almost all of their shows go up on their YouTube almost immediately, here's last night's show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6mPew0s3wE which I'm catching up on as I pontificate.)
I always enjoy #tjpw when I watch it live, but it's not in "catch up afterwards" territory for me yet. Part of that is because I don't have a great handle on who is who yet, so watching with the Splania Discord folks who are properly into TJPW makes it a lot easier to follow along. (Plus watching with those folks is always a blast!)
All you need to grow your own vitamin-packed sprouts at home is a jar or plastic cup, preferably clear, and a cloth to cover it, and some way to keep the cloth fastened on, like a rubber band or hairtie.
Do you have those things? Want to try growing sprouts? DM me an address and next Monday I'll post you an envelope containing heirloom-y, non-GMO, open-source seeds that you can use to try it out, at no cost to you.

My original plan for covering the dueling pro wrestling buzz factories of AEW Dynamite and WWE NXT was to compare the shows and definitively state who won the war that week. Here’s the thing though: it’s dishonest. That’s not how it works. Many things can be objectively true, but such and such wrestling show won against other wrestling show isn’t really one of them. I’m too dedicated to things like nuance and indecisiveness to pull off a gimmick like that. So instead, I’m going to write both the “NXT won” and the “AEW won” articles. (It’s libra season, duh!) Smooth Sailing: The case for NXT If you’re grading the war (and …
Problematic himbo Jake Hager was last night’s surprise debut, appearing at the end of AEW Dynamite to aid Chris Jericho, Santana, Ortiz, and Sammy Guevara in beating up The Young Bucks and Cody and Dustin Rhodes. Like when Shawn Spears appeared at Fight For the Fallen and whacked Cody upside the head with a chair, AEW is treating this like a big deal. Is it, though? Let’s look at who he is and what he brings to the table to figure that out. Who is Jake Hager? In a former life, Hager was WWE Superstar Jack Swagger. A product of the University of Oklahoma, Hager signed with the company in …
You may or may not know this, but AEW and NXT are going head to head tonight, and it’s kind of a big deal. Maybe you’ve chosen a side. Maybe you’re one of those wrestling fans who just wants everybody to do well. Maybe you’ve been mashing F5 in your web browser for the past two weeks hoping to be the first to know if CM Punk will be wrestling for a company he hates or just talking about it on FOX Sports 1. Things are kinda hush hush today, but given that NXT’s card is Takeover level and AEW is coming in hot, you know that someone is gonna …
