So I've really enjoyed The Last Ride documentary on WWE Network. Part 1 was substantially better than Part 2, but both have been very enjoyable watches so far, and I'm looking forward to see what remains. I've gotta imagine you're loving it Andrew.

I'm a bit behind on it (as I am with The Last Dance, funnily enough), but I've definitely enjoyed what I've seen so far. Given how protective he's been of kayfabe and his character over the years, it's awesome to see him pull back the curtain like this.

Dark Side of the Ring finale is tomorrow night featuring Martha Hart talking about Owen. He is one of my favorites, so I'll definitely be tuning in. Much like the Benoit story, there was a lot of stuff kept from the media so it would be interesting to hear what went on behind the scenes

I think it's going to make for one of the more interesting episodes.

The Owen episode, like the Benoit episode, should be a tough but fascinating watch.

Meanwhile, there goes WWE teasing an IIconics split, something that absolutely doesn't need to happen. I mean, they have chemistry as opponents because they were constant adversaries in PWA, but they do not need to split them up. They're a great double act, they're already doing a "former friends turned bitter rivals" angle with Sonya and Mandy on Smackdown, and the women's tag division shouldn't lose its only real team. Aside from being pretty depressing to see, it's just not a good move at all.

(Which is why WWE Creative are probably strongly considering it.)

Just got done watching the Owen episode and man, that was hard to watch. I remember I wasn't really watching regularly at the time, so I don't ever recall really seeing the Blue Blazer gimmick at all. It made me really sad to think about his career when Jericho said that there was no one in the company that could keep up with him at the time and named off all the people that would come shortly after. I am happy that the complete story got pieced together but I wish that we had learned more about Owen, the kind of person that he was, and the life that he lived. I love when people tell stories of him ribbing people. It seems like everyone that knew him had a story and no one had a bad thing to say about him.

I understand the two sides of the controversy now where Bret and the wrestling community want to honor and remember him but Martha doesn't want WWE profiting off of him.

Apparently there are some deleted scenes that talk about his reputation as a ribber.

That's more like it. Some of that old viciousness is back.

It looks like they retconned the tease of the breakup last week. Also, are those NXT talents in the background? I thought I saw Shotzi Blackheart and Jessamin Duke in there.

Yeah, they've started using wrestlers as a crowd as AEW has been doing.

If there's an upside to the thinner roster during the pandemic, it's that some underused people are getting a chance to shine.
