Ruminations on TV Shows, Comics, And Music
The creative doldrums of the last few seasons start to slowly fade as the current crop of AEW and WWE stars ascend to the top of Ring Of Honor, we get our second Summer Of Punk, as well as The Pipebomb, and Impact gives some spotlight time to some looked over WWE veterans while also continuing their excellent X-Division.
This is an era I was totally tuned out for. I wasn't watching any wrestling at all, and nobody I was talking to ever mentioned it. (I didn't even hear anyone elude to the pipebomb until 2014.) So it was fun to go back and see some of these matches, and realize that the mediocrity that turned me away from sports entertainment didn't last very long.
