There are reports that Jeff Hardy is out of action with a concussion
He took a botched move from Sammy Gurrera during a taping of Rampage, that result in Sammy hitting Jeff in the face and legitimately knocking him out

I haven’t commented here in a little bit because I was sick. Here are some quick thoughts I have about some wrestling stuff.
I was in attendance for the Smackdown following the WrestleMania press conference. That was pretty cool. The most over people there were Cody Rhodes, R-Truth, Bianca Belair, and Randy Orton. Also, seeing that Triple H segment live was pretty cool.
I finally got around to watching Will Ospreay’s farewell match in NJPW. That was pretty wild. I think it will end up as probably a top 10 match of the year. It was in my opinion the best War Games type match since the 1992 War Games, which is quite the hell of the compliment.
Really a big fan of The Rock heel turn and the way that’s being done. The thing I’m wondering is does it end with The Rock turning on Roman? Personally, if The Rock were to turn on his cousin, I feel like you have to do it after Cody beats Roman for the titles at Mania, like Roman loses to Cody and then after the match Roman blames the loss on The Rock. Having The Rock turn on Roman during the middle of Roman’s match with Cody would make Cody look weak.
Lastly, I’m going to be attending Revolution next week and I have to say that I think the card is looking pretty lackluster at the moment. FTR Vs the BCC, Ospreay Vs Takeshita, and Samoa Joe Vs Hangman Vs Swerve will no doubt be awesome, but other than that there’s nothing that really excited me other than the women’s title match, which has the potential to be really good and Toni Storm has my favorite gimmick in all of wrestling, and Sting’s final match.
I mean, I get it to a certain extent. You want to build the entire show around Sting and his farewell. I know that’s why I’ll be there, and I assume 95% of people will be there for that reason alone. But if you remove Sting’s retirement from the equation, this has to be AEW’s weakest card on paper since All Out last year. Then again, that show turned out to be pretty awesome, so who’s to say the show doesn’t overdeliver?
As for what I think is going to happen in Sting’s final match, I saw Solomonster talk about this idea and I agree I think this is what is going to happen where it’ll be similar to The Great Muta’s retirement match where Sting and Darby take on The Young Bucks and then afterwards, Sting challenges Ric Flair to an impromptu match where Sting beats him in two minutes. I think having Sting beat Flair in his final match would be pretty cool and it would also give Flair one last match that he’s been desperately wanting since what was supposed to be his last match didn’t turn out so well.

Some thoughts of mine.
I’m surprised Samoa Joe didn’t finish high for best on interviews. I thought he would have at least made the top 3.
This is the first time WWE has won promotion of the year since I believe 2000.
Surprised Mistico beat out Vikingo
I’m stunned that SANADA beated Roman Reigns for most overrated. Overrated means overpushed in these awards anyway, and who is more overpushed than Reigns?
Kevin Patrick should’ve won worst announcer
Happy Triple H won best booker
Really surprised Bray Wyatt won worst match
I don’t agree with Crown Jewel winning worst PPV of the year. I would probably go with Fastlane for that.

I don’t get why these pro wrestling newsletter also covers some MMA related events when their topic is all about pro wrestling.
But still, I respectfully agree with their MMA rankings especially with my brather Islam Makhachdv being their best fighter and his first fight with Volk being the FOTY.

I’m concerned about the AEW World Tag Team championship.
If Revolution is Sting’s last match, what will happen to Darby? Will he relinquish both titled, even if it’s just as too soon as Damage Control imploding? (THANKS A LOT NIA JAX!!!)?
Or will Darby find another partner to hold the other belt?

I thought Elimination Chamber was a very good show. Both chamber matches delivered and that was the best Nia Jax match I’ve ever seen. Rhea Ripley is such a star.

I’m still concerned.
If Sting and Darby win, Darby will be the only person to hold 2 belts once Sting retires. And it wouldn’t make sense for one person to be a tag team.
If the Young Bucks win, people will cry short-lived or squashed when Darby and Sting won WEEKS AGO. (Just like Kofi Kingston losing the title to [REDACTED])
Honestly, Sting’s final match shouldn’t be a title match tbh. It’s gonna make his title run short-lived and without any defense. Not for Darby but to me it wouldn’t make sense to have ONE person as a tag team. And the worst part, Darby will relinquish the tag titles unless someone else works with Darby.
Unfortunately, Nick Wayne turned heel instead of standing with Darby. THANKS A FUCKING LOT, CHASTITY CAGE OF PATRICIDE!!!
