2023.03.31 18:22 Additional_Brain_205 Enterprise Value of Real Estate Wholesaling: ???

I own a house wholesaling business, we currently have 9 employees members (3 domestic, 6 International) and I'm looking to put a COO in place to oversee the day-to-day operations so that I can step into the owner role.
Our marketing consists of direct mail, cold calling, email, SMS, and email drip campaigns for acquisition. Our deposition side consists of our in-house team doing due diligence and creating marketing material which we then partner with local real estate agents to sell the deals. Our average deal is $7,688 with a net profit of $6,312 per deal. Net margins of 82%. Average monthly revenue ranges between 150-180k at the moment with a monthly growth rate of averages about 3-5% per month this is a high growth rate since we are still relatively small this will most likely be too slow as we increase in size and operational drag. We have no debt and about mid 6 figure in cash reserves. The company is 2.5 years old at the moment.
I feel confident with the systems and structure that with a solid COO to oversee the company we can continue to scale without me there.
I'm wondering about positioning the company for a sale in the future once I can prove a track record that it is no longer a founder-driven company and that it can also be self-sustaining.
What could I sell this business for if sold to private equity, would they even be interested, how should I best position the company for a sale?
Thanks for your help!

Specific Question:
How can I lower overall cholesterol and triglycerides without lowering HDL? Ideally while reducing sugar as well.
Looking for general nutrition or diet recommendations. Specific dishes would be a nice to have bonus.
39M, somewhat sedentary lifestyle (I do exercise, but both work and hobbies are at a desk), somewhat overweight but not excessively so.
I recently had a fairly severe bout of covid, and during the recovery got blood-work that indicated:
In my case, sugar is pretty easy to severely reduce from my diet, and I am taking steps already. On the Cholesterol side, though, I'm currently lowering overall cholesterol but I haven't found much information on how to lower cholesterol without also lowering LDL, which I want to maintain or increase slighly.

2023.03.31 18:20 LocationOk1668 How to Check if a Domain is Available: A Comprehensive Guide

If you are planning to create a website or launch an online business, one of the first things you need to do is to check if your desired domain name is available. A domain name is your website's address, and it is essential to have a unique and memorable one to attract visitors and build a strong online presence.
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to check if a domain is available:
Step 1: Choose a Domain Registrar
A domain registrar is a company that manages the registration of domain names. There are many domain registrars available, such as GoDaddy, Namecheap, and Google Domains. Choose a registrar that suits your needs and budget.
Step 2: Use the Registrar's Domain Search Tool
Once you have chosen a registrar, go to their website and use their domain search tool. Enter your desired domain name in the search box and click on the search button. The tool will show you if the domain name is available or not. If the domain name is taken, the tool will suggest alternative domain names.
Step 3: Check the Domain Name's Availability on Different TLDs
TLDs (Top-Level Domains) are the suffixes that come after the domain name, such as .com, .net, .org, .edu, etc. If your desired domain name is not available with your preferred TLD, try checking it with other TLDs. This will increase your chances of finding an available domain name that suits your needs.
Step 4: Check the Domain Name's Availability on Social Media Platforms
Once you have found an available domain name, it's a good idea to check if it's available on social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Having the same username on social media platforms as your domain name can help you build brand recognition and make it easier for people to find you online.
In conclusion, checking if a domain name is available is an essential step in creating a website or launching an online business. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can find an available domain name that suits your needs and build a strong online presence.

[Get] Dan Koe – Digital Economics Masters Degree Full Course Download
Get the course here: Dan Koe – Digital Economics Masters Degree
What You Get Phase 0) Digital Economics 101 The Digital Economics 101 module will open 1 week prior to the cohort start date.This is an onboarding module that will get you up to speed so we can get straight into the material.This will be required to finish before the start date.
  • Gain a deep understanding of all of the pieces in the digital economy.
  • Learn about the future of media and code — the front-end and backend of the internet — so you can focus your efforts.
  • Understand digital leverage, distribution, no-code tools, and digital assets so you can take part in the mental & financial wealth transfer.
Phase 1) Creating A Meaningful Niche Every day I hear people going on and on about trying to find their niche.I also hear people talking about how they don’t know how to combine what they love talking about with *what will sell.*You already have the answer. You just don’t have the clarity.
  • Develop a long-term strategy to create your own niche — meaning you don’t have to worry about your “competition” playing status games.
  • Discover your life’s work, curiosities, and obsessions. I see too many people that are uncertain about this for years.
  • Cultivate and turn your vision, goals, and values into a brand that attracts an audience you love interacting with (and that will buy from you, and only you).
Phase 2) Content Strategy There is one thing that separates those who make it in the digital economy and those who don’t.It’s the quality, articulation, and perceived originality of their content.The content you post has to make sense to the people you attract.Everyone has a different voice and tone that they resonate with. **That they are congruent with and trust.**It has to change their thought patterns or behavior — that’s what makes you memorable.That’s what separates you from the sea of people posting surface-level copy-cat style posts.Example and putting my money where my mouth is:
  • Become an expert-level speaker or writer on the topics you care about.
  • Never run out of content ideas for your posts or promotions (without using content templates — that’s how you stay a commodity).
  • Create posts, blogs, tweets, images, and videos that resonate with other’s on a deep level. People will actually ask you how you got so good at what you do.
  • Separate yourself from the ocean of B-tier creators that struggle to sell their products, services, andhave their ideas stick in the head of their audience.
  • Implement our Epistemic Research Method — which is just a fancy way of saying scientific research method… but it’s for researching your mind to craft brilliant content and product ideas.
Phase 3) Crafting Your Offer Most people are sitting on a goldmine of skills, experience, and knowledge (that they can use to help people 1-2 steps behind them).That is what people pay for.Considering 95% of the market are beginners… if you are good at something, you can help them get to your level (no matter how “basic” you think the information is).Do you not watch basic content all day anyway? People don’t want new information, they want to be reminded of what works.
  • Use our Minimum Viable Offer strategy to start monetizing immediately (and have something to improve over time, rather than procrastinating until it’s perfect).
  • Have a strategy for reducing the time you spend working over time (as you build leverage and improve your offer).
  • Know how to create your own customers from the audience you are building, instead of “finding” the right customer for your offer.
  • Take the guesswork out of building coaching, consulting, or digital product offers.
Phase 4) Marketing Strategy You aren’t making money because you aren’t promoting yourself or your offer.That is literally the only way to make money. Have something desirable and consistently put it in front of peoples’ faces.In Phase 4, I will show you how to systemize, automate, and be consistent with simple will be able to make money without having the chance of forgetting to do it (or letting fear of failure get in the way).
  • Learn to sell on social media, in your writing, and across different platforms.
  • Have consistent sales coming in while focusing on your meaningful message (no need to sound salesy all the time).
  • Learn advanced automation strategies that you can implement at your own pace, especially once you validate your offer.
Bonus) The Creator Command Center The Creator Command Center is a Notion template that houses all of the systems.This is how you will manage your brand, content, offer creation, marketing strategy, and systemized promotions for consistent sales. Bonus) Live Product Build & Launch In the first Digital Economics Cohort, I built out my course The 2 Hour Writer.I have videos showing how I build it with the strategies in phase 3 and 4.There is a bonus module that shows how I had an $85,000 launch that resulted in my first $100K month.I did this to prove the strategies inside Digital Economics work if you stick to the plan.***And, this past Black Friday, I blew my that monthly high out of the water in 4 days.***That’s the power of these strategies if you stay consistent with your life’s work.

2023.03.31 18:20 SparklezSagaOfficial Another question for tier list makers (research for larger project)

Pop-offs are pretty cool, especially when someone you expected to bottom frag is the catalyst for a team making dodgebolt, or when a player you worried was beginning to fall off storms back to form emphatically. However, because of the small total sample size of canon MCCs, it can be difficult to confirm the difference between consecutive pop-offs and a trend toward reaching a new "tier."
So I ask you, how consistently does a player have to perform at the level of the next tier up or down to be that tier?
If you want, explain your reasoning in the comments.

2023.03.31 18:17 dyinginsect I've taken action on a load of problems so why do I feel so much worse now?

TLDR: asked for appropriate housing for my challenging oldest son, have taken action on problem debts, made a self referral for mental health support which has been accepted, all things I really needed, but I feel like I have failed despite knowing that these things are necessary action on problems that were tipping me over the edge and I don't understand why I feel so much worse and not any better.
There has been a fair bit going on for me over the past few years and for ages I have just tried to get the fuck on with it and hope for better times. In the last couple of weeks, though, I've come as close to collapse as I have done in a long, long time, and realised how much I need help for some things, and have tried to get it.
My eldest is nearly 17, diagnosed with ADHD for which he refuses medication, other diagnoses queried but he won't engage for them to be confirmed, no longer in any form of education, currently on a Youth Referral Order after being convicted of street knifepoint robberies last September, awaiting court for a burglary that took place last July, with previous convictions already. He steals from me, his dad, his younger brothers, every chance he gets. He won't accept any of the help I have screamed and crawled and negotiated to get offered to him. He has a social worker who is as much use as a chocolate teapot and regularly goes weeks ignoring contact. He goes missing regularly enough that the police referred him to a charity aimed at supporting street based kids who are regularly found on the railways. He uses drugs and alcohol and commits acts in the community that make me want to vomit if I hear about them. In the past month he has had 4 missing episodes, stolen over £250 from me, breached his current youth referral order, brought people into the house overnight, been brought home by police twice and engaged in such conflict in the community that last weekend my living room and kitchen windows were smashed with bricks by people he is warring with. As is usual the searches of his room that I have to do have turned up plenty of items of concern. To give you an idea of how we live, everything sharp in our house is kept in a coded lockbox and searching his room is part of an agreed safety plan. Items I have removed and handed to police in the past include weapons, drugs and stolen goods, none of this is your normal teenage misbehaviour. I have tried to manage this for so long but the impact on my younger children, who are 8 and 14, is huge (they are fucking terrified to put it mildly) and I finally reached my breaking point, reported his thefts from me to the police and asked social services to find semi independent accomodation for him.
I have been the sole earner in our house for a few years, my husband was made redundant during covid, he has had health issues since (heart and thyroid stuff that got quite serious for a while and he had to have an op and various treatments) and he is trying to get self employment going but it isn't going well. I managed to get a job with a much better salary but every extra penny has been swallowed up by the cost of living increases (my gas and electric bill has risen by 195% over the past year and a half, my rent increased 30%, council tax and water and transport and food internet and, well, EVERYTHING has risen). We had credit card debt, it was manageable, my credit rating is fairly good, all was OK. Suddenly the 0% offers are ending and I am unable to get any new ones, the debt is about to become unpayable, I have been frantic. I contacted a debt company today, have arranged a debt management plan. This is a good thing. I feel like a fucking failure, a useless pathetic excuse for an adult who can't even handle money.
I can't sleep, I cry at the most ridiculous times, I find myself being unable to offer emotional support and to care about things other people tell me, I am comfort eating and drinking, I have started to fantasise about getting an illness or being in an accident so I could get away from all of this (because suicide is obviously not an option, I have children and in any case I don't want to kill myself), I feel like shit basically. So I self referred to mental health talking services via the NHS and they have accepted the referral and sent me a message to say so. And I feel REALLY FUCKING PATHETIC about that, because I never thought I would need to get mental health help ever again.
I don't know what I am asking for here. Reassurance probably. I just... people talk about a weight lifting when they acknowledge what is wrong and do things to fix it. So why do I feel worse? Why can't I get past the feeling that the help I have sought means I am a terrible shit excuse for a mum, a stupid inadequate financially incompetent adult, and an time wasting person who is using a mental health resource someone else needs more?

2023.03.31 18:16 FireCatMagic Are instance uniforms more optimized?

I’m just wondering if it’s worth converting my shaders to use instance uniforms for the purpose of speed. My game can utilize thousands of duplicated materials, and this would reduce it to a single material. I just wonder how this actually functions on the backend and if it’s faster to convert my already working materials to use this.

2023.03.31 18:16 NoBelligerence A pretty simple way to deal with colonial utopias: dominions shouldn't be part of your market.

All of this really depends on a robust foreign investment mechanic, but that feels inevitable at some point anyway. Also, wages in colonial regions of any sort still need to be way lower. In game mechanics terms, plantation workers in the Dutch East Indies were paid less than peasants, and a lot of creative and really evil techniques were used to move them away from subsistence farms. The game just doesn't go far enough suppressing wages in colonial regions. And finally, the player really needs to be able to release custom dominions with whatever arbitrary states they want.
A lot of people have talked about the tendency for the game to create high SoL colonies in Africa, and pretty much everyone agrees that it's both bad for gameplay and also just distasteful - an accidental whitewashing of a pretty dark thing. The game currently tries to handle it through modifiers, but it feels a bit clumsy, and it's questionably effective. A lot of people have pointed out that the problem fundamentally is that things like transportation costs aren't modeled, so these colonies have equal access to all the goods of the market. But a lot of the proposed solutions are pretty convoluted, both from a mechanics and performance point of view.
But the game already has a way to model all this. So here's a really simple thing: Dominions inside a strategic region should all share a market. And instead of dominions directly paying a tax on income, invisible two-way trade routes should form automatically for each good, with the overlord collecting tariffs. This neatly solves a number of problems:
One, it makes the relationship more extractive. Pops inside dominions still buy shit from the overlord's market, but at reduced quantities and higher prices.
Two, it kind of abstractly models something that currently feels a little weird: shipping iron from your colonies to your homelands to make into steel just shouldn't be quite as efficient as making steel on site.
Three, adding everyone in the world directly to your market feels kinda weird and probably isn't great for gameplay. Customs unions feel like they shouldn't span the entire world. If instead it was more about adding countries to a dominion's market, that mitigates that somewhat, and imo makes for more interesting gameplay. It also advantages local users of resources, which I think is a good thing.
Four, it gives a reason to actually use dominions as dominions instead of an infamy discount for conquest.
Five, it makes that mess in the Dutch East Indies actually make sense. Right now, it's just ugly border gore you know you're going to have to clean up eventually. You can't do anything with all those little subjects of subjects. With this system, they'd be fine as-is. Maybe it would be slightly better to bring them directly under the more oppressive colonial government you've got there to further suppress wages, but it still works. Making gameplay have interesting choices and tradeoffs and incentivizing players to act historically is good.
There are some pretty obvious objections:
What incentive would the player ever have to directly control territory?
Honestly, I don't think there'd really be one in most cases, and I think that's fine. I think for a game in this era, the player should have to carefully consider not just what territory they want, but how they're going to exploit it. And exploitation through directly holding it should really be an exception rather than the rule. This whole setup would create a tradeoff: If you create a dominion, you don't get taxes (directly or indirectly with the income payments gone,) and you get slightly less efficient access to the resources. If you puppet them, you get better access because they'd be in your customs union, and you'd get a cut of taxes. If you directly hold territory, you have to deal with turmoil, you still get no taxes, you get better market access, and you get to directly recruit troops. Probably not worth it, but up to the player in the end. And I think that's okay. In all cases, you'd still get returns for your investment pool provided you're capitalist, because we're presuming a good foreign investment mechanic.
But what if the dominion just builds industry there?
A problem if nothing else changes because they'd have better access to the raw resources. But again, there's a pretty simple solution: make qualifications matter more. It should be hard to use modern PMs, especially for factories, without good literacy and universities. And the player should have more control over the subect's politics and overall strategy. If the subject is autocratic, the player should be able to direct them to not worry about literacy and go full extraction. You wouldn't be able to do this to eg Canada without making it more autocratic, which would provoke turmoil and rebellions, but you could if you wanted to - though then you'd be stuck with a pretty low population region that nobody has any incentive to migrate to. And by taking this approach, you also neatly sidestep another objection, which is that dominions like Canada and the Dutch East Indies fundamentally were not the same and didn't function the same way.
On top of that, this approach makes unrecognized gameplay more interesting: although the game doesn't directly forbid it, you can't just immediately industrialize in the same way you could in Sweden or the Netherlands. You've gotta do small scale industrialization with obsolete PMs and slowly strategically provide jobs for more literate pops as you solve that situation. And it also gives states in the region a strong incentive to stay independent: there's no hope for modernization under the thumb of an overlord.
tl;dr, game right now is still too much of a map painter and is ahistoric in ways that are bad for gameplay and that have some unpleasant implications. This can be fixed through foreign investment mechanics, disincentivizing direct conquest, further suppressing wages in colonies, and decoupling dominions from their overlord's market.

2023.03.31 18:16 moodyDipole Struggling to use XYZ method or include quantifiable metrics because of the nature of my work

I find a lot of advice online saying things like "use quantifiable metrics" to describe what you've achieved. I find this so difficult to do because of the nature of my work. Let me give an example, here is a short description of a project I did that I'd like to include:
I find it very difficult to compress this down into a quantifiable metric or achievement. I worked with a ton of other engineers in R&D, so a lot of the job was just making small improvements/bugfixes on large, complex problems and contributing to the overall knowledge base. There are no projects where I can say I improve x by 10% or whatever. Its all more like... hey we needed to know this thing and I figured it out for them by building an experiment and doing data analysis or hey we need this functionality so I built the functionality.
Anyway, my best attempt at boiling this down into a bullet point is:
Does anyone have any advice on how I could improve this?
I know this is a very wordy post. I'd be very appreciative of feedback of any kind.

2023.03.31 18:14 Kasshoko Should I get my belly pierced?

Hey peeps!
I'm after some advice on wether to get my navel pierced or not. I know, I know, it's not something someone else can tell you to do or not do, but still.
So I'm pretty sure that I have the right anatomy for it, but I'm a little on the chubbier side so I'm scared that it just won't look good :/ I do plan on losing weight, but we all know how easy that is /s
I also tend to wear a fair amount of high waisted stuff to help shape my waist and have read that that's not the best idea when you have your belly button pierced.
Also, I'm 30, so... Am I a bit old for this sort of thing? Is that something silly to worry about?
I know most of the answers will probably just say "Well lose weight then!" (yes, very helpful, thank you -_-) but I guess I'm just asking for y'all thoughts?
Thanks folks xx

2023.03.31 18:13 allyoucandoisbitch AITA here? How do I not stay pissed about this?

AITA here? How do I not stay pissed about this?
I found this list of complaints my brother wrote about me today. I'll type it out since his handwriting is awful:
  1. Complained about shed being crowded last year, my stuff thrown out for trash pickup
  2. Had to move my stuff from hall closet because of his complaining
  3. Can't open windows or curtains in hall
  4. Can never park my car in garage EVER
  5. Have to store Pat's (our aunt in a nursing home) stuff in my room now because he doesn't want it in the kitchen
So let me explain these things.
  1. A couple years ago, I was helping my dad put away the lawn stuff before winter came. As I was putting it into the shed, I noticed that it was a mess and started straightening it up. My parents got involved and decided to put some stuff by the curb to throw it away. None of the stuff was mine, I was just straightening it up. I have no idea if his stuff got thrown out and if it did, he should have said something at that time.
  2. Our rooms are upstairs and there is a big closet in that hall. He used to keep his vacuum in it. He would use this vacuum and then just throw it back in the closet in the middle of the floor. Basically, making it someone else's problem to move. I just mentioned how it's a basic manner we're taught in grade school to put things back how we found them and he decided that meant he can't keep it in there any longer. I clean that closet and he doesn't so I expect it to at least be maintained since I put the work into it.
  3. Don't know why he thinks this. All I expect is that if he opens the curtains, they need to be closed when it's dark so people can't see in. That is literally the only issue is that he'll open them but not close them. So fine, if you can't close them, don't open them.
  4. My parents have always had me park in the garage. I go to work at 2am and work 40+ hours to his 15 hours a week. My parents have also justified my parking in the garage because I have the smaller bedroom while his is about double the size of mine and has a closet. I would kill for a closet. Last year, I bought and assembled a large 3 sided car awning for him to park under. It's basically like a garage, just no door. I mean he's welcome to move out if he has such an issue with it.
  5. This is extremely stupid. Our aunt is in a nursing home and pays my brother back to buy things like bags of chips or cookies for her. He would buy them and leave them in bags on the kitchen floor for us to trip on. I asked one day last year why we can't find a better place to keep them other than on the floor. And apparently that is just ludicrous to put things in a place that isn't in the way.
Honestly, I'm just livid to know that he even took the time to compile a list of reasons why he doesn't like me. It feels like, basically, he doesn't want to ever be told no or corrected on things? I'm only a couple months away from buying a house so it's not like it's a long term problem or anything but I'm still pissed. Other than the parking in the garage, which isn't necessarily my fault, I feel like this list is just him overreacting to being told "no, you can't be a slob". Or am I being an asshole?

Hi my Apartment living room is roughly 20 x 18. I have Yamaha AVR, I bought Kef Q150 for $ 400 some days back. Now I am getting deal for Q350 for $550. Should I keep Q150 or return them and get q350?

2023.03.31 18:13 OhSoTaL Back Ordered Case - Looking for Replacement

I am building my first PC and I have all the parts coming in with the final ones dated by next week to come in. The only issue is I recently learned the case I had ordered became a back order and would ship once stock was available. Not sure how this usually goes or if inventory might come by quickly, but I was hoping to get some help in finding a similar case to this one (linked below). I am looking for similar sizing and no RGB/LED lighting. I appreciate any help!

Mental health is an incredibly important part of our overall well being
When we are struggling with our mental health, it can affect how we think, how we feel, and how we behave. Mental health awareness is a critical part of self-care, and taking the time to focus on improving our mental health can have a lasting and positive impact on our lives. In this blog post, we will be discussing some tips for improving your mental health and promoting mental health awareness.
Get enough sleep
Getting enough sleep is an essential part of personal development and lifelong learning. It can help improve your mental health, reduce stress, and boost your productivity. For most people, the recommended amount of sleep is seven to eight hours each night. To make sure you get enough rest, set up a regular bedtime routine that you stick to each night. You can also take steps such as turning off screens at least an hour before you plan to sleep and setting up a quiet and comfortable sleeping environment. If you have trouble falling asleep, there are many techniques from personal development school that can help such as relaxation exercises, keeping a gratitude journal, or deep breathing. Taking the time to get enough sleep will benefit your overall well-being. Not only will it improve your mental health, but it can also provide energy and focus for personal development activities like lifelong learning. If getting enough sleep has become a struggle for you, consider taking personal development classes offered through personal development schools. Many classes offer instruction on how to relax and fall asleep quicker, incorporate healthy habits into your lifestyle, and cultivate better self-care routines. Through personal development schools, you can also find classes that address any underlying issues causing insomnia so you can start getting better quality sleep. The classes offered through personal development schools can be extremely helpful in building skills necessary to achieve better mental health and overall wellbeing.
Eat a healthy diet
Eating a healthy diet is one of the best ways to take care of your mental health and improve your overall well being. Eating a balanced diet can help improve your mood and give you more energy. It can also help you make healthier lifestyle choices. Eating foods that are high in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can help promote lifelong learning and mental clarity.
Some good choices for a balanced diet include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. Eating breakfast every day is also important for maintaining focus throughout the day. Try to avoid processed foods, sugary drinks, and refined carbs as these can lead to fatigue and other issues.
Drinking plenty of water is essential for keeping your body hydrated and your mind sharp. Staying hydrated helps your brain process information faster and improves your cognitive function. Incorporating superfoods into your diet such as blueberries, nuts, salmon, avocado, and dark leafy greens can also help boost your mood and nourish your brain.
In addition to eating a healthy diet, it’s important to practice mindful eating by being aware of what and how much you’re consuming. Eating with intention will help you make better food choices and prevent overeating. Eating healthy can provide many benefits, including improved mental health, increased energy levels, and enhanced lifelong learning. Click Here

2023.03.31 18:11 autotldr Kolkata (India) Man Infected By Killer Plant Fungus In World's First Case

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 44%. (I'm a bot)
The patient's CT scan revealed that a right paratracheal abscess existed.
The first person to be diagnosed with a fungal disease that typically affects plants is a plant mycologist in Kolkata.
This, according to the researchers, shows how plant infections can spread to humans when in close contact with plant fungi.
"He had no history of diabetes, HIV infection, renal disease, any chronic disease, immunosuppressive drug intake, or trauma. The patient, a plant mycologist by profession, had been working with decaying material, mushrooms, and various plant fungi for a long time as part of his research activities."
The researchers, Dr. Soma Dutta and Dr. Ujjwayini Ray of the Consultant Apollo Multispecialty Hospitals, Kolkata, further explained in the report that "Chondrostereum purpureum is a plant fungus that causes silver leaf disease in plants, particularly those in the rose family. This is the first instance of a plant fungus causing disease in a human. Conventional techniques failed to identify the fungus."
"Only through sequencing could the identity of this unusual pathogen be revealed. This case highlights the potential of environmental plant fungi to cause disease in humans and stresses the importance of molecular techniques to identify the causative fungal species."

2023.03.31 18:11 ProjectRAD The Haters' Guide to Wrestlemania 39

Yes, this is the 5th year in a row I'm doing a Wrestlemania Haters' Guide. Why? Because the subject of pro wrestling hasn't been banned from the subrebbit, so loopholes ahoy, baby!
Anywho, this year's event is at SoFi Stadium in California. The last Wrestlemania in the state of California? Wrestlemania 31. A mostly well regarded PPV with one of the most shocking main event outcomes in Wrestlemania history. Remember when Wrestlemania shows had SEVEN matches on the main card? Apparently, since everyone needs their Wrestlemania payday, and two nights pay better than one, that is a reality that can no longer exist. Nowadays, Wrestlemania weekend means that for four consecutive days from Friday Night SmackDown to the Monday Night RAW the night after, your eyes are to be glued to the squared circle with zero deviation. With that in mind, and considering how batshit crazy WWE's behind the scenes drama and shift in power balance has been over the past year, we actually made it to Wrestlemania 39. Let's see the 13 matches vying for ultimate immortality.

Brock Lesnar vs. Omos (with MVP)
Try to act surprised when I tell you that this matchup is rumored to be a Vince concept. It seems HHH has given Vince the one match to book, and thankfully nothing more.
That being said...guys...we need to take this time to particularly talk about Omos. This dude isn't getting over. He's fallen off ever since he lost the tag titles, and ended his feud with his former tag partner, AJ Styles. What's he been doing since? Mostly matches with Bobby Lashley again. Yes, Lashley vs Omos was a match at last year's Wrestlemania, and that loss has proven to only hurt Omos' relevance, and especially his TV time. Over the past year, his matchups have pretty much been exclusive to house shows. Either squashing much smaller men, or jobbing to Lashley in order to make The Almighty look better. The one time WWE actually chose to use him in any meaningful situation was a matchup against Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel. Which of course he lost that match.
Bottom line, He's just not that much of a presence anymore. I know that WWE under the HHH regime has seen the end of mass talent layoffs, but this guy is a waste of a matchup. He's got to go. His career is going absolutely nowhere, even with MVP at his side. Who in their right mind believes he can hang with Brock Lesnar?
Granted, Brock's the perfect opponent for him. A typical Omos match does not exceed 10 minutes, which is perfect for Brock's aggressive, fast-forward style. Furthermore, in terms of overall size, Omos is outside Brock's normal range of opponent. It's gonna be a Wrestlemania moment on its own when Brock lifts Omos up for the F-5, but after that... you're left with Omos getting tossed back into the toy chest until the next house show rolls around. Take the hint, WWE. Give Omos another loss, and send him back to his home in Nigeria. He misses his family dearly, and I think his fellow Omo-sapiens will understand how homesick this man is. (It's really bad when The Great Khali has done your act better).

Seth "Freakin" Rollins vs. Logan Paul
Ok, you also get ONE celebrity based match, too, but that's it.
In all honesty, Logan Paul has lived above expectations as far as his in-ring performances are concerned. He's not the most compelling and relatable character, but he's able to put on matches that are at least good (vs Roman) to above average (vs Miz). I like to think of him as the male equivalent to Ronda Rousey, where WWE is just using his name for brand recognition. Although unlike Ronda, his name is not exactly lighting up the mainstream media, just social media. And it's not translating well to ratings and awareness that he's living in WWE City. I know that WWE saw how well Logan adapted to the sports entertainment scene. That's just what the Paul brothers tend to do. But here's the kicker. People don't want to see a Paul brother succeed. They want a Paul brother to get knocked on their ass via a huge crushing piston called "reality". Here's an example. When Jake Paul won a boxing match, it was whatever. When he lost to Tommy Fury just recently, now THAT is where the entertainment value was. And Jake did say to judge him by his losses, not his wins. We are prepared to do the same to Logan. Because all he has done so far in WWE is lose. Match quality aside, he has put the "L" in Logan. Let's see if this showdown with Seth gives him his Wrestlemania triumph.
Speaking of which, there's so little to say about Seth Rollins in this equation. At least he knows who his opponent is this year. At least he had the spectacular Cody Rhodes feud before the wrestling gods gave Cody time off (and a hell of a match to go out on). He did kinda get stuck trying to put Matt Riddle over before Riddle succumbed to his own vices, but this is the most over Seth Rollins has been. Most of it is the fancy new "sing me to the ring, and never stop singing" entrance, but it's the little things that make you a big star around these parts. And really, I can't picture anyone else in this scenario. The Visionary vs The Influencer. This should be a fun contest, and bragging rights for weeks to come if Rollins walks out the loser. However, if it means more of Logan Paul appearing in WWE... honestly, every wrestling fan loses. I know Logan says his contract is up after Wrestlemania, but somehow, I'm not a believer WWE will let him slip away that easily.

Trish Stratus, Lita, and Becky Lynch vs. Damage CTRL (Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky)
Let's take you back to Summerslam 2022. Bianca Belair standing tall over an obsessed Becky Lynch, and then out comes Bayley. Away from the WWE for over a year to rehab a freak accident during training for the return to live events. But the twist no one was expecting is that Bayley didn't return alone. She brought back two women to form a stable that would be ever present across RAW ever since. Dakota Kai, previously handed her pink slip a few months prior, was given a second chance at her WWE life by Bayley. As well as Iyo Sky, who already had one foot out the door while living in NXT limbo. Thus, they formed the group Damage CTRL, and while neither member was successful in capturing singles gold (Especially Bayley.), the Women's Tag Team Championships... that was a different story. Aside from one week being without the titles, Kai/Sky have held them for 5 months. It's only recently that Becky Lynch and a returning Lita have come into possession of said titles, with a little help from Trish Stratus, who much like Lita, is never REALLY retired.
And now we have an interesting 6-woman tag contest that's been put together as a result. Becky Lynch and two Hall of Fame legends combat a group that needs a decisive Wrestlemania victory as a trio. Becky's been fighting Damage CTRL longer than anyone else, so it is safe to assume this will be the beginning of the end of this neverending war. Especially if Damage CTRL can finally walk away from their battles against Becky with heads held high... hopefully.

Rey Mysterio vs. Dominik Mysterio
Yeah, this match was pretty much a foregone conclusion. I feel like they could have done this match at any Wrestlemania possible, but first we need someone to be heel in this contest, and it's sure as hell not gonna be Rey Mysterio.
So... Dominik... I'm a bit mixed on his career trajectory. Because right now, across the board, he's just good, but not great. He's trying to be on the same level as his father, sometimes even emulating him either for heat or grasping the Mysterio name for some miniscule level of credibility... but at this point, it's been more than a minute since his career started, and the excuses are running out. Hell, that promo where he declared he's the next Eddie Guerrero... yeah, that definitely ruffled a few feathers online. btw, still using Eddie's name as a vehicle in your Wrestlemania matchup build in 2023... come on, guys. And yes, Eddie came a long way as shown by his WCW work, and the level of promo that Guerrero was cutting at the time. So maybe it's better we get this shit version of Dominik out of the way now, so he can eventually become WWE Superstar Dominik Mysterio, with a celebrated World Championship reign of... 2 months.
What is actually happening here is that Rey Mysterio is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, so his career clock is running out. So this match is immediately happening before Rey's knees collapse into themselves, and thankfully, the way this match was booked ensures that Wrestlemania will be the point where this feud has absolutely peaked. God, the pop on Rey finally striking his son. I haven't seen him get that much pleasure out of beating his kids since he got his copy of WWE '13.

Hell in a Cell Match
Edge vs "The Demon" Finn Balor
Ladies and gentlemen, your neverending feud. It wasn't too long ago that Edge formed The Judgment Day, a heel stable dedicated to taking the younger generation under Edge's wing. First, it was Damian Priest, a lost soul looking for guidance, looking to escape his never ending punishment. Then, it was Rhea Ripley, a individual whose presence in the group took on a life of its own (more on that later). And somewhere along the way, they even added Rey Mysterio's son, Dominik, into the fray, which he sorely needed. But none of those additions compared to their last member... Finn Balor, who immediately led a coup overthrowing Edge as their leader. It could be because Edge opposed the direction that The Judgment Day was going, but don't let rumors and heresay dissaude you from the fact that the preceding battle of Finn Balor leading The Judgment Day in a crusade to make Edge's life a living hell has been happening for a couple months too long. Even Edge's own wife had to pay the price for her troubles, and because Edge taught them too well. It feels like we've gone just about everywhere these two can go together... except Hell in a Cell. Oh, and Finn Balor's "Demon" persona is listed as the opponent, but hey, 3-4 hours in the makeup chair will absolutely be worth it to bring back a character he said he discarded in his second NXT run. Of course, wrestlers say a lot of things, but Finn's such a professional, we figured that declaration would stick.
At least this way, these two can guarantee a great Wrestlemania match... for about 15 minutes until Damian gets involved in some way. Plus it's probably Edge's match to lose. Unless he makes another agreement, this is his last year on his WWE contract. And of course The Judgment Day has nowhere to go but up. Even though it could possibly be a splintered group if Rhea gets the job done at Wrestlemania (again, more on that later.)

Men's Wrestlemania Showcase
Braun Strowman and Ricochet vs. The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford) vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable and Otis) vs. The Viking Raiders (Erik and Ivar)
Since the Tag Team title match later on is a 2 team affair, we need to show the world that, yes, we do indeed have other teams in reserve, and no, our tag team division is NOT dead why would you even say that!
These are, admittedly, the usual suspects. The Viking Raiders have been a "pushed one week, not pushed the next" team over the past couple years. More importantly, they haven't been consistently healthy. Finally getting their chance to make their mark, and a new face among them in Valhalla who's career is probably gonna last longer than theirs, perhaps they get a credible win this time around?
The Street Profits... still exist. WWE, in their endless quest to not pull the trigger on a Montez Ford push, has him continued to be weighed down by Angelo Dawkins, a guy who is good, but not AS good. Even if they win, let's be real. It's not going to improve their standing as a tag team.
Alpha Academy... is also still here. Despite WWE not knowing exactly what they are going to do with Otis, and Chad Gable continuing to be another jobber to the stars, we still have a team, miraculously. It feels like nowadays these two would be better off apart, which is weird to say considering they were mostly on top around this time last year.
The underdog in this scenario is the makeshift team with no name... Braun and Ricochet. Braun has seen success in the past, but Ricochet... the mountain he climbed wasn't nearly as tall. You look at this team, and you look at a duo that just doesn't belong. Individual success in singles, cannon fodder in a tag match. If anything, they might be the team to surprise everyone, and secure a victory here. It all depends on what their future holds, as well as the future of the tag division, considering what lies ahead.

Women's Wrestlemania Showcase
Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez vs. Natalya and Shotzi vs. Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler vs. Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville
Supposedly, Becky Lynch & Lita were supposed to defend their Women's Tag Team Championship at Wrestlemania on top of the 6-woman clash with Damage CTRL. Now that is crazy. And clearly, WWE wasn't crazy enough to have Lita wrestle 2 nights in a row. So we have a Women's Tag Team showcase. And what a tag team showcase it is. Including tag teams that... aren't really tag teams. I could give you writeups on where each of these women are in their career prior to this tag team extravaganza, but let's cut to the chase. Ronda Rousey is in this match. Considering all the other women in this mix, Ronda Rousey is not walking away with an L at Wrestlemania (forget Wrestlemania 35, one of the most celebrated wins in women's wrestling). Her and Shayna Baszler would have more than likely become Women's Tag Team Champions had things been a little different, and I believe they will be by the end of the year, so if anyone needs this win for bragging rights and for the rocket to propel them towards the gold, it's Ronda and Shayna. Any other win is a waste of time. I will say I am surprised to see Chelsea Green at Wrestlemania. I feel like I just saw her in Impact Wrestling 6 months ago. She was absolutely gonna team with Carmella, but it appears the wrestling gods aren't done bringing maximum misfortune upon Carmella, so Sonya Deville, you're here. You're not doing anything. The rest of you... one of you is more than likely eating the pin. Natalya, thank you for your 15 year long service to WWE, and your service will continue with a Ronda exclamation point. You understand, of course...

Still, what would Wrestlemania be without title defences? A legit question I hope that WWE never answers.
WWE United States Championship
Austin Theory (c) vs. John Cena
John Cena has not wrestled at Wrestlemania in 3 years. And hasn't wrestled at a live Wrestlemania in 5 years. And it was an Undertaker match that wasn't even properly advertised (Is a 2 minute match at Wrestlemania even a REAL match?)! It's so weird to see the hero of the Ruthless Aggression era absent from Wrestlemania. Not even talking about a match, just... not even a cameo? But it's fine. John Cena has his noteworthy career in Hollywood, and has to stop being Peacemaker to become WWE Superstar for one night only. His opponent?

Austin Theory. Austin Theory is absolutely living up to his potential, at last. Over the past year, he has become a superstar that you can slot into pretty much any situation. Get your cheek bashed in by Tyson Fury? Done. Keep the US Championship relevant? Oh yeah. Main event for RAW? Done and dusted. While Roman is mostly King of SmackDown, it's RAW that is lacking in a World Title to call its own, and it feels like Austin Theory has done his damndest to take up the mantle. It's a shame that he has yet to receive that one victory to cement his place on the upper card. That match could very well be pinning John Cena at Wrestlemania, which is more than likely going to happen because Cena has so few Wrestlemania matches left in him, and the torch needs to be passed. Not that such a torch passing achievement is a sure thing, because Kurt Angle passed the torch to Baron Corbin in 2019, and... yeah. Should be a better match than people are thinking considering I don't think Cena has lost a single step post-Hollywood, and Austin Theory will no doubt be not only pulling out all the stops, but ripping them out, to boot. I assume there's a lot of certainty behind this stop ripping, because it's going to be the opening match of Wrestlemania on Saturday. Best of luck, Theory. Admittedly, this isn't the Austin vs Cena match I wanted, but we haven't fully invented time travel yet.

WWE Intercontinental Championship
Gunther (c) vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre
Damn. Just... damn. If there was a singles match with any combination of these 3 men at Wrestlemania, you are guaranteed ****1/2 star minimum. The evidence speaks loudly. Drew and Sheamus wallop each other, and it's 4 stars. Gunther and Sheamus take lumps of flesh out of one another at Cardiff, it's considered a match of the year candidate. I feel for the human bodies in this war. Through Gunther's own impatience, what would have been a competitive 1v1 brawl turns into a Triple Threat clusterfuck, said in the nicest terms. There's only so much unique text I can type being envious of everyone in this match. It's not THE main event, but it's my main event.
Sheamus has spent the past year or two putting the heavy in heavyweight, being the hard hitting bruiser he always knew he could be. Teaming with The Brawling Brutes and being an overall menace in the 6-man division (Ha! You thought there was a Trios division in WWE, didn't you?).
Drew has been all over the card. World Title shot one month, feuding with Karrion Kross the previous months, and now he's got his chance at gold he can realistically carry for at least a couple months. If only said gold wasn't held by Gunther.
Gunther... the walking weapon of WWE (get well soon, Josh Alexander). I petition this man should absolutely get his name changed to Midas, because everything he touches is gold. All I have to do is point directly at his NXT matches with Ilya Dragunov, and say that such excessive violence is the peak of WWE content. And his match quality has stood strong even when he leapt up to the main roster. It's been that way for the past 9 months ever since he won the IC title. Body after body falling before his presence. The best IC Champion in a long time. If he loses this match, it's because WWE looked back at his... well, it's less of a true one-on-one match, and more of a "last two guys in the Royal Rumble" match against Cody, and realized that Gunther is that guy. And hopefully, he does not fall between the cracks in the process. This match has potential to be match of the year. Watch out, grab a bucket of popcorn, and hold it tight.

RAW Women's Championship
Bianca Belair (c) vs. Asuka
Bianca, congratulations on your year long success. I'm all for you breaking down barriers, and making history (herstory's too cheesy, and I don't want to devalue her accomplishments), but what awaits you at this Wrestlemania is a challenger to your title unlike any other before her.
Asuka has transformed into a figure better representing her previous life as KANA. This is an Asuka not hindered by wacky dancing and horrendously awkward promos, this is an Asuka that plays with your head. Make you fear NOT what is coming, but why it hasn't already appeared. We've seen so little of this Asuka in WWE, and we've seen very little of these two in a one-on-one setting. Maybe a match here and there on RAW, but this pairing have yet to see a long term rivalry. At last, WWE have realized to, as the Fighting Game Community used to say, save that shit for nationals. Well, Wrestlemania is your nationals.
Asuka is a dangerous customer all her own. If she hasn't knocked your head off with precise kicks, or ripped you limb from limb in one of her many submissions, then beware what awaits you if she opens her mouth. And heaven knows how this new persona has affected her typical approach.
Bianca, you also know the score with her. Stamina to spare, and power for miles. She's been holding that RAW Women's Championship ever since last year's Wrestlemania, and has worn that title to the fullest, decimating any and all competitors who think they can hang with her. Including against Asuka at Hell in a Cell, with a little help from Becky. Now Bianca and Asuka need only focus on each other. This is a fresh new Asuka against a Bianca who is prepared to weather this tsunami threatening to take her title. Another classic Wrestlemania encounter awaits.
As for who will walk away with the cherry championship, I feel like Asuka wins, just because Bianca isn't ready for Asuka. Not to seem cliche, or desperate to squeeze in a catchphrase or two, but I feel like one of Asuka's newest unknown tricks is going to be the deciding factor. And it's also definitely not going to be the last time these two square off with a championship at stake. Here's hoping.

SmackDown Women's Championship
Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Rhea Ripley
You know, when this match took place 3 years ago, I hoped Rhea would win. A rising star straight out of NXT with the boost she needed to be at the top of the mountain. But that's not what happened. Charlotte outperformed her. Back then, I figured Rhea winning was a must. The momentum of WCW Lex Luger after his world title win over Hollywood Hogan, and with a loss, it would be turned into WWF Lex Luger with no title to his own. That's also not what happend. Rhea climbed her way back up, scratched and clawed for every achievement. For a while, she was at the top of RAW's Women's Division. It's clear now she didn't need the boost, she just needed to plant her feet above ground level, and the business would work for her from there. And then something happened. She became a part of The Judgement Day. She got the kudos, she got the tutelage, and she got herself a Royal Rumble win. And a ticket to a championship opportunity. The roles are reversed. Now it's not Rhea insisting Charlotte use her Rumble win to challenge her for the NXT Championship, now it's Rhea using her prize as a chance to correct history, and become SmackDown Women's Champion.
There is debate on whether or not this match is worthy of a Wrestlemania main event slot. Considering how white hot the storylines are in the last two matches being covered, and the potential of just having women main event a Wrestlemania night for PR backpatting, it's definitely a match with a case to state. A Royal Rumble winner being in the last match of the show isn't a sure thing, and the build might not make the match seem as hype as others, but if these two think they are worthy of closing the show... then I hope they tear the roof off SoFi.
These two are top of the line. Charlotte can turn her offensive focus on a dime, Rhea is prepared to play dirty to realize her dream, and Rhea is facing the daughter of the dirtiest player in the game. This isn't gonna be a pretty contest. A heated, brutal slugfest is a much better descriptor. I believe Rhea will leave behind any shred of doubt that she is on Charlotte's level. But Charlotte's not just gonna lie down, and let her title slip away. Look forward to this match being talked about for the next few months afterward.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship
The Usos (Jey Uso and Jimmy Uso) (c) vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
The year is 2023. The Usos continue their eternal stranglehold on the WWE Tag Team division. It's been due to The Bloodline's dissention being one of the most compelling storylines in recent WWE memory, and at the center of that discourse is Sami Zayn. We've been watching him over the past year align with Roman, damn near become the second-in-command of The Bloodline, fight against his best friend Kevin Owens (which to be fair, is neither the first nor the last time that's happened), and then have Sami reach his boiling point with a payoff betrayal of Roman Reigns being a deafening roar of heroism, to Sami getting squashed underneath Roman's boot. But now Sami knows his true target; The Usos. But he can't do it alone. He needs help from his former best friend, Kevin Owens. Owens wants no part of Sami's personal war, considering that Sami joined in on any and all Bloodline beatdowns of Kevin Owens. However, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, so friends turned rivals turned friends again believe they have the best chance of finally overcoming The Usos and their umpteenth day reign as Tag Team champions.
And the bond of The Usos is stronger than it's been. Jey Uso, with a small drop of uncertainty, spent a whole month absent from WWE itself, uncertain if the direction of The Bloodline was one he was willing to follow. In the end, blood was thicker than water. And rather than Sami and Jey be the duo to get it done, Jey kicked those dreams away, picking family over personal glory. Just be glad the titles haven't been given the proper Freebird rule, because there was a house show or two where the part of Jey Uso was played by Solo Sikoa. Ah yes, Solo is finally a part of WWE's main roster proper. Spent the first 6 months of his career undefeated (just had his first loss to Cody on Monday. Still looked strong). If the Usos start to, in any capacity, show signs of losing, expect this enforcer to interject.
In reality, you know how strong The Usos are as a unit. Slick teamwork, lethal attacks and combinations to double up their mighty blows... they've been holding on to those titles legit, even without interference. Will this reunited twosome of Kevin and Sami be any different? I don't think so. Sami's been on the inside until recently, and Kevin's been fighting them longer than anyone. In my mind, they might just be the force to catch The Usos slipping, and become the new Tag Team Champions. Of course, that depends on if the wrestling gods have grown tired of seeing The Usos hog the tag titles for over a year plus. I think most of us are.

With the dirty dozen of Wrestlemania clashes chronicled, we now come to the final contest; The Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. You know the first name, but the second one is a name seeking glory that his generation could never grasp. Let's get the obvious one out of the way first.

Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns wanted his Head of the Table gimmick realized, or he would walk out on WWE. The fans believed in their Tribal Chief becoming the face of WWE. Over the past 900+ days, that's what happened. The fans got their reward..... their eternal reward. Roman has stood on top for far longer than any human being in the Wrestlemania generation. Male or Female. Singles or Tag Team. In fact, walking into this match, this is the 3rd straight year that Roman is defending his world championship. No one else can make such a claim. Not even Hulk Hogan, who felt like his time at the top of the mountain lasted far longer.
It's not hard to see why Roman is breaking as many records as he is. It's because of how far he has come. You look back at his time even 5-10 years ago, a time where the crowd wanted absolutely none of Vince's personal project. His promo material was awful, his matches were against people who were either leagues above him in wrestling ability, or they were far too immobile to be of any help. Roman Reigns was everything except over with the crowd. You can throw him in as many main events as you want, he will never be acknowledged. The fans despised him because of the simple fact that he was "The Guy". The guy in the big Wrestlemania matches, the second man ever to have defeated The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, the guy who got chance after chance at the spotlight when many other favored sons received diddly-squat in comparison.
With that, Roman worked smarter. Seeking his family entourage to grant them guaranteed success, his wise council in Paul Heyman being the Don King to his Mike Tyson, his general improvement and diversity in his offense beyond just spears and superman punches, as well as limiting when and where his title matches take place to make them the big deal that they deserve to be. Roman has been used in a significantly smaller capacity over the past year, to the point of some considering him a part-timer, which is a dangerous role around these parts. The continuous rumors over Roman taking time off were constant, and everpresent. They felt more like a tease that the oppressive era of The Bloodline was coming to an end. In actuality, it meant that the other members of The Bloodline got their chance to shine on equal terms.
Roman has been at the center of damn near every major storyline going on in WWE. Whenever Roman appears, whether making his way to RAW, or defending his title at a Premium Live Event, it is a big deal. A must see for any and all eyes on the product. He is what he, and the people who believed in him all those years ago, wanted him to become. The face of WWE. His actions as of recent have made him anything BUT face. Him destroying Sami Zayn at Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber have secured his place as the top heel of the company for the near future, and it has been reflected in how he achieves his Ws. One way or another, he has pulled win after win out of his ass, either through capitalizing on chaos, or outpeforming the opposition. But there is one man he has never been able to defeat in a meaningful encounter. That is Roman's Wrestlemania opponent. A man, who as of 4 years ago, was All Elite.

"The American Nightmare" Cody Rhodes

This really is the embodiment of never say never. Cody Rhodes left the WWE in a huff, shamed and embarrassed at his personal exit. But he didn't linger for long. He went back on the grind.
So.. what do you wanna talk about? Well, let's talk about Cody's post-WWE life.
You name a wrestling promotion in the United States, the likes of the NWA, the likes of Ring of Honor, he has swam to the top of it. Creating and forging his own legacy and identity. Not afraid to speak his own mind, not afraid to step above his station, and especially not afraid to fight his ass off, and put on matches well above his own average. As a result, a special thing happened in 2017. Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer felt that Ring of Honor would not sell out a 10,000 seat arena any time soon. Cody took him up on that declaration. In an event known as "The Bet", such a PPV exceeding that crowd capacity was called All In, and it planted the seeds for what is now the #2 wrestling promotion in the United States. It's crazy to think way back when that THAT Cody Rhodes would be partially responsible for helping to create the first promotion to take a sizable chunk out of WWE's audience since the WCW days; All Elite Wrestling.
But what no one else was expecting in the early days of AEW was Cody's career trajectory. The first to challenge for the AEW World Title held by Chris Jericho under the condition that if Cody can't beat Jericho, he will never challenge for that title again. It would be Cody's one, and only, shot at that title. He failed. From then on, Cody would obtain a title worth fighting for; the TNT Championship. Challenger after challenger vanquished every single week for as long as Cody held that title. With the exception of getting mauled into submission by the late Brodie Lee, Cody would stay the course. The only thing that would stop him... was discourse. Among the AEW fans. They felt that Cody only had his success because it was his company. And it was that stigma that eventually caused the fans to turn on him. Through a combination of that bitterness, as well as clashing with his fellow EVPs, Cody felt the time was right to leave AEW to its own devices. Unthinkable at the time, but by January 2022, it became reality. Cody was a free man once again.
From there, it was a matter of days. The day... was Wrestlemania last year. Speculation on Seth Rollins' mystery opponent had the rumor mill swirling. Perhaps Gable Steveson, maybe Shane McMahon? But Cody Rhodes? Come on, there's no way. And then the lights went black come match time.. to the tune of "Kingdom". And a crowd reaction that broke the sound barrier. My god... it actually happened. Cody Rhodes returned to WWE.
It must have come with a hex on Cody's body, because a couple months later, Cody tore a pectoral muscle meaning his WWE return would be short lived... if this were a man of logic and discretion, perhaps. Cody wrestled a classic Hell in a Cell encounter despite his pec looking incredibly sore against Seth Rollins to cap off that rivalry. And then the recuperation began.
Not a peep on Cody's return until the Royal Rumble. After putting on another clinic with Gunther to fight over the Wrestlemania main event, Cody stood tall. And thus, the match was set in stone. It's Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes. WWE's golden boy, vs AEW's exiled founding father. Cody Rhodes attempting to realize a dream that his father, The American Dream, was never able to make reality. A matchup that didn't even seem possible 2 years ago is now suddenly the main event of Wrestlemania. Wrestling is a special thing, sometimes.
In short, this matchup is indeed main event worthy. It's an even bout from top to bottom. Roman's power and authority vs Cody's acumen and knowhow. A godlike force vs a man seeking wrestling immortality. It's either going to be jaded WWE fans swearing to never watch again as long as Roman's still the champ, or AEW fans seething and coping that Cody is standing tall in enemy territory. A main event for the ages that one man has to lose. A duel of the fates that will be spoken of in documentaries and future montages to come. The quest to decide the undisputed WWE Champion.
Who will it be?
All things considered, I think this match is a lot closer than people think it is. Cody has been fighting to no end, and he's confident that he has Roman's number. He has a reason to be champion other than just being the top guy in the company, but to Roman, that is his only reason. And that is his driving motivator. And such an obsession will be his undoing. All it will take is one mistake, one spear off the mark, and Cody will strike with an unforeseen fury and desire. This is Cody Rhodes' night. He will raise both titles, and discard both physical championships to bring back the golden World Heavyweight Championship that his father once wore proudly. Don't deny me this moment, WWE. Don't deny your fans someone new at the top for fucking once. And please keep away from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund. The morality of your fanbase depends on it. Not like morality has stopped any of your poor decision making in the past. Speaking of poor decisions, enjoy your weekend of bodyslams and crossbody splashes to the outside. Ring the bell, fuckers!

Thanks for reading. Have fun with Nick Khan saying the quiet part out loud.
Nick Khan: Just one note on that, I don’t run the WWE. There’s only one person who actually runs the WWE, Vince McMahon. A lot of folks help me to help run the WWE.

2023.03.31 18:10 BlazeDrag Random Idea for a small Martial combat change

So I was watching various things like the D&D movie and other action stuff with cool fights like Princess Bride and whatnot, and afterwards I was trying to pick apart what made those action scenes cool while martial combat in D&D was boring.
Obviously a big part of it is that an epic duel between a pair of fighters ultimately just boils down to them rolling d20s against each other since it's hard to represent the intense skill of two experts clashing blades when it really just boils down to them constantly attacking each other in terms of game mechanics. But I was trying to think of something that those have that D&D combat doesn't. And then I thought of something.
What if by default, hitting someone with any martial attack caused your target to be pushed away from you? This is almost always how fight scenes tend to go in lots of movies. You have people going at it with each other and as one side is winning, they tend to push the other side back, and it can be tense when there's obstacles like a cliff or lava or whatever that one side is being pushed towards.
It would also help alleviate how stationary D&D combat can get sometimes, since often once the two sides of a conflict meet, there's little reason to actually move around a whole lot except for cleanup. But this can let martial characters physically smack someone away from their party members without having to give up an attack to shove people. And then keep them away by continually smacking and chasing down their target to keep pushing them back.
There'd have to be some limits of course. I imagine you'd have to throw on the standard "No more than 1 size larger" limit so that halflings aren't pushing around Ogres with every attack. And maybe it can offer a Saving throw if you were to push someone into either an occupied or otherwise directly hostile space. But I feel like this is probably the smallest change I can think of that might have a fairly dramatic effect on how Martial combat works to make it more interesting to play. Obviously I'd want to see more than just this in 6e in an ideal world, but I think that this could be a good general change to combat to improve things even before talking about specific class changes or weapon buffs and whatnot.

Pico8 Error: No carts found!
Pico8 worked for me in the past, now it doesn't. I installed the latest OnionOS and threw the old data from my memory card. So a new fresh start. So far I have only downloaded the Pico Games and moved them over, as before. But now I can't customize the size of the display under select. With the old OnionOS it worked. I have clicked through the menu and eventually found a way to re-size the screen. However, I can no longer get out of the menu and it appears: no carts found. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this?
Thank you so much!!
