This column is now officially a Scorpio Sky stan account. After his Tuesday night victory on Dark, he moves to 7-0 for the year, a record that would seem to qualify him for a spot in the top 5, yet he remains unranked. I will not rest until he is champion.
I am excited about both the MJF segment and the Jericho-Cassidy debate. I know that it turns some people off, but, for me, the comedy stuff translates better without a crowd than the in-ring product. Especially when one of the in-ring segments is an overloaded 12-man tag match. I’m also looking forward to Moxley vs. Darby Allin, and a little surprised that they are doing this match on TV and not saving it for a PPV. Both guys are prone to pushing the envelope and should put on a wild spectacle.
