If you’ve been keeping up with the blog, you know I’m on the cusp of another week of wrestling for season #6 of the Netflix show “GLOW”, based on the real-life Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. We’re getting close to the final 2-3 episodes of the season; it’s exciting! But, I thought I’d give you a little backstory on how I got started as a wrestling fan, since I’ve mentioned it in a few of the posts. I first saw the show thanks to the Netflix “Watch it now” button that I found on my Roku. (I probably won’t need to use that feature anymore, but I thought I’d mention it.) As luck would have it, I was in
It’s time to watch a new episode of “Another Week of Wrestling #6 (14th June 2021)”. The week has been traditionally a rerun of the previous week’s episode, but this week, it’s a brand new episode, so you have to watch it and bring your own commentary on what you just saw. You might be curious to know who’s in it, and what happened the week before.
One of the things I love about being a reviewer is that I get to have a great deal of creative freedom in choosing the title of each new article. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a huge fan of wrestling, or it’s because I’m just trying to be slightly different from everyone else, but the title of this one is, simply, “Another Week of Wrestling #6”.
Another wrestling week #6 (June 14, 2021)
Thanks for coming! In addition to bringing you This Is Not Wrestling every Thursday and raving about PPVs on YouTube, I’ll also be giving my thoughts on other wrestling events that catch my attention on Monday. I’m Danny Schade, I write for Geeks + Gamers, and it’s another week of struggle!

Unexpected news: Leo Rush has retired from professional wrestling. He recently returned to action in the AEW Double or Nothing Casino Battle Royale tournament. Rush suffered a torn shoulder during his brief appearance and then hastily issued a statement saying he would no longer wrestle. Too bad no one mentioned injuries and talent development more than once.
Tony Khan came out of his father’s money-filled pool to say that he had spoken with Rush and was honored to work with him for such a short time. I wonder if Rush got a clown impression from Tony Khan when he dealt with him. Anyway, so much for giving up Rush management; his My Man management joke was so good to get the heat. This would be ideal for Miro’s purposes (in the long run), as the Bulgarian’s micromanaging game is not as impressive as his skills in the ring.
Mark Henry only joined the AEW team a few weeks ago and has already managed to take his place (if only mentally) in the corner of Jim Ross and Jim Cornett. He spoke about AEW talent’s work in the ring and how the company can help people. It didn’t take him long to notice AEW and assume they were fan-friendly because they dealt with pre-approved, pre-selected people on social media.
In addition to deciding to get away from the internet and do more for the communities in the areas where AEW holds events, Henry talked about the product on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast.
In terms of wrestling, I want less ….. I want everyone to watch the games before they do because replay exists. Someone will make a top, and the next game will have two tops, and the next game will have three. Stop trying to do better than what you’ve already seen and find something else to do. Repetition is my favorite topic, and I feel like if you’re doing something and someone else is doing the same thing, you’re not following the product. I love the way the Bucs do the superkicks. Why are there three matches on the card where someone does a superkick before they do it? If it were me, I’d be upset. -Mark Henry
As you can see from the examples above, one or two screamers will complain that the veteran won’t allow them to stay up later than the prescribed time or snack before dinner. I’m sure it could be part of a general change. There are more and more veterans with their heads on straight at AEW; my fingers are crossed that the overall direction, tone and success of the company will begin to improve.
Mickie James appeared on NWA to announce that she will be producing a PPV for women for the company, NWA Enpowerrr, in the near future. James has spent the last few years wondering what was going on with his place in the company. She was held on standby and released by WWE, her gear was sent up relentlessly, and she also changed wrestling targets several times.
The fear is that this has little chance of success, as the WWE and their marketing muscle failed in this endeavor a few years ago. I honestly think if done with the right people and not too often, it should be great. Early indications are that James won’t be on the show, but I hope that changes. Regardless of what WWE has been able to offer her with their promotions, she is still a fantastic arm in the ring.
Talk about wrestling women: Triple H managed to ruffle a few feathers at the NXT Takeover press conference last week. To be honest, he didn’t have to try very hard. I’ve noticed that there are a few people who say they don’t care what Triple H does. But those same people spend too much time listening and watching everything he does just to react to it.
In my opinion, the best female performers in the world are in the WWE, and if they aren’t, they want to be. -Three H.
That’s a fair statement, especially when it comes to presenting your product to a large audience. But Dustin Rhodes loves the smell of his own fart almost as much as his younger brother Cody and couldn’t resist.
Dude, with the injury list this year, this is not the time or topic to puff up your chest and let us play against them.
Focusing on fewer injuries is probably a good place to start.

Dustin also tried to deflect and get a few pats on the back for his recent rope fight against Nick Komoroto. He asked fans on Twitter what they thought of the Main Event and quickly received responses he didn’t like. When you ask for praise, some people refuse to give you what you want, simply because
It was unnecessary, and you should have lost. You have a combination of Billy Jack Haynes and a muscular Brody, and you beat him in a match he was supposed to dominate. If you were as passionate as you claim to be, you should put him in his place. ….

That’s also a good point in my opinion. If you’re a well-known or public figure and you ask for feedback, if you get it in the form of constructive criticism, there are better ways to deal with what you don’t want to hear than this…..
He became a better wrestler after being in the ring. So, your specific opinion is irrelevant. Your mother wants you to go back to the basement. #BasementDweller
Pay attention to the product.
He really won. He was at the game. Everyone who works with me gets better. -Dustin Rhodes
The last of these quotes is from a tweet that is still pending; the other two tweets have been deleted. Dustin again seems to be someone who thinks AEW should get all the awards just because they are an alternative to the WWE. I conclude that it is not only the child of the Rhodes family who should buy thicker leather.
Seriously, guys. You were both much more fun and lighthearted as Goldust and Stardust; maybe that’s why WWE put you in full-body suits!
That’s it for this week. Evaluate and discuss! Don’t forget to follow the This Is Not Wrestling show published every Thursday on GeeksandGamers.com. Keep it up, and I’ll see you next Monday to discuss #AnotherWeekOfWrestling!
