    Thank you, Kofi.

    His title win at Wrestlemania was one of the few moments in wrestling where I teared up, knowing how monumental and relatable it was seeing a black man win the top title in the company, and then be booked solidly while the champ, and given a months long title reign. I'm grateful for having witnessed the journey.

    In my opinion, Kofi have one of the best run as WWE Champion in a long time.

    In Hindsight, the match was worthy of the Main Event. That was a pure 5 star match for me and everything about the program leading up to it was great as well.(I'm talking about Kofi vs Bryan at Mania, btw) I haven't been a fan of Kofi's reign, but it was no worse than AJ's year long reign as a babyface. It may have been a little better, in fact. I feel like listing out my favorite title reigns from recent years.

    U.S. Title:
    Cena's U.S. Championship reign is one of the best title reigns ever, so that's my number one title reign of any championship in at least the past 10 years.

    WWE and Universal:
    Dean Ambrose's only one.
    AJ's first
    Seth Rollins' first is the kind that will really get better with age. He had great matches with Cena, a great fatal 4 way match, and a great match with Orton. The Sting and Kane matches weren't great, but you gotta have some clunkers.
    Daniel Bryan's heel reign was pretty great.
    KO's reign as Universal Champion may not have drew, but I thought he was a consistently entertaining champion, especially with Jericho next to him. I miss that guy.

    Tag Team:
    New Day's first was it's best, but the second one was good for a while too. Just hard to be consistently entertaining after more than 400 days.
    The Shield's first reign was excellent and their work as a tag team remains super underrated to this day, when people talk about how good Seth and Roman are.
    Uso's first reign on Smackdown was amazing and legitimized them as great, in my eyes. They were so boring before they decided to show their personalities.
    The Bar had a great reign, but weren't quite my style. Always felt like they couldn't deliver on the story aspect, to me.
    The Revival's reign is young, but I like basically everything they do and think they're the best tag team i've ever seen. (Not as good as the Express, either of them, but I wasn't alive to watch those guys)

    Intercontinental:
    None. It's been a shit belt for a while.

    Women's Champion:
    Ronda was top tier for me. She was booked like she was supposed to and put on great matches.
    Everything else for the last 4-5 years has been them trying too hard to get Charlotte over. Not a fan of Becky's matches, but she's been entertaining and her feud with Sasha in the last few months has been pretty great.

    Women's Tag Team:
    Only Sasha and Bayley are good. I was reminded how good they are at being a tag team last night, when I saw how bad Charlotte and Becky were at it. Never been a fan of Bayley as a singles wrestler, but she's a great tag worker. Sasha's great overall.

    USA isn't a major network though. And unless that jump is going to enable NXT to make more money than it has over it's entire lifetime it's kind of a moot point.

    To be fair though the women's tag division is pretty much a mess the apparent end result when you kill the tag titles you originally had. Then spend the next few years having the women bounce between feuding one with another as singles while occasionally having them team up for no logical reason.

    NXT has been a money drain since day 1 and has only cost WWE money. This will actually be the first time they're making money and that the wrestlers have the chance to draw it.

    True, but that's part of why I was so impressed with how good Sasha and Bayley are. They really shouldn't be that solid already. I didn't want to ignore the title so I had to bring them up.

    Oh boy, everyone is mad about the ending of that match. Even through I like most of Bray vs. Rollins, I thought the ending it with a DQ was stupid.

    Nice they FINALLY let Kairi & Asuka win the tag titles. Stupid they had Sasha get Nakamura'ed. And then of course the dumb as hell finish.

    WWE once again shot themselves in the foot. It was obvious what the outcome of the main event should've been, but now, the mystique of The Fiend has all but disappeared, and Rollins is the most hated top guy since Roman. Both came out of this fuck finish looking much worse.

    I don't really agree with this. He still effectively no-sold everything, and might be able to make it up with a good promo.

    As for the PPV, I care more about Sasha and Bayley losing than the main event. Charlotte with 10 championships in 4 or 5 years is just absurd and Sasha's only not as over as Becky because of booking, in my opinion. Fans have been wanting to embrace her as the top Woman since they all came to WWE, but booking has never put her in that spot, even once. She's the only one of the three who hasn't got a Mania win yet, and has never won a title on a PPV. Pisses me off.

    Damn. NWA Powerrr is great. I could watch just it every week and that'd be more than enough wrestling for me.

    I think I have officialy became a fan of Darby Allin with how he came for the save at the end of tonight's episode of AEW on a skateboard and then begin attacking Jericho with it.

    Send Gable back to NXT so he won't be called Shorty for fucks sake.

    Honestly that's not the part about what's happening to Gable that bugs me it's the fact they have him feuding with Corbin. Apparently fucking over Finn Balor wasn't enough let's fuck over this guy who we've been consistently fucking over the last 3 years and are still fucking over even after he changed his look.

    Smackdown was a okay show tonight. I will say I like Bayley's new look. She's doing a great job of being a heel, her promo at the end of Smackdown was great.
