Attendance: 10,355

Results of Tonight's Show

Match Stipulation Winner
Austin Theory vs. Sheamus US Championship Title Match Austin Theory
Raquel Rodriguez & Shotzi vs. Damage CTRL Tag Team Match Raquel Rodriguez & Shotzi
Ashante "Thee" Adonis vs. Cameron Grimes Singles Match Cameron Grimes
LA Knight vs. Rick Boogs Singles Match LA Knight
AJ Styles vs. Karrion Kross Singles Match AJ Styles


  • We kick off the episode headed straight into FIGHT NIGHT!
  • Backstage with the Bloodline. Paul Heyman notes the Usos aren't going to Night of Champions, but they're invited next week to the 1000th day championship celebration. Roman says, especially Jey. Jimmy gets an attitude about Roman's attitude and is going to leave but Roman tells him to sit down. Roman calls him out for trying to big league him and asks Jimmy to go ahead, come at him. Roman whooped him then, Roman will whoop him now - Jimmy will respect and acknowledge him.
  • Lots of video packages tonight recapping the lead-up to matches at Night of Champions.
  • After Cameron Grimes' win, Baron Corbin ambushed Grimes from behind on the ramp.
  • Bianca Belair heads to the ring to talk to the crowd. She's ready to defend her championship against Asuka. But this Asuka isn't the Asuka she used to respect. If she wanted a rematch, all she had to do was ask, but instead she had to mist her during her championship celebration in her hometown. And her hand is still green from getting misted again last week. Now she's not just getting a rematch, she's getting a fight. Asuka's music hits, and then attacks Bianca from behind. She tries locking in an armbar until they're broken up by officials. They break free and Bianca hits Asuka with a KOD although caught by one of the officials.
  • Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn are backstage chatting ahead of the KO Show later tonight.
  • After winning his match, LA Knight grabs a mic to yell at Street Profits for talking smack about him on commentary. He says their time is coming. They're not gonna get the smoke, they're gonna get smoked.
  • Karrion Kross notes that when a man only sees a singular goal, he fails to see everything else. Like AJ Styles preparing to wrestle Seth Rollins at Night of Champions, he should be asking himself what kind of condition he's going to be in after tonight's match.
  • We get an Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre vignette, noting they're bringing their NXT Tag Team Championships to all three brands.
  • Kayla Braxton stops AJ Styles as he heads backstage after his match, asking him about being ready for Seth Rollins tomorrow at Night of Champions. AJ notes Seth is a lot of things, but he isn't phenomenal.
  • MITB qualifying matches next week: Zelina Vega vs. Lacey Evans, Montez Ford vs. LA Knight.
  • It's the KO - no, the Kevin & Sami Show. Tomorrow they defend their tag team titles against Solo Sikoa & Roman Reigns, but for now they're tonight's guests. Paul Heyman arrives to say the Tribal Chief doesn't come out when they want the Tribal Chief to come out. The Usos music hits and they march to the ring, saying do they think they're going to forget what was done to them last week? Roman & Solo are the least of their problems. Kevin says they're the ones he wants to talk to anyway. He says Sami still keeps saying they deserve better and he's kinda tired of it but either way, they need to acknowledge Sami has been right about Roman the entire time. KO says Roman is narcissistic & delusional, the "head of the table," but The Usos are the heart of the table. But Roman treats them like they're the appendix of the table. But yet they won't do anything Roman doesn't tell them to do. They went from being the greatest tag team in the history of the WWE to being nothing more than Roman's little errand boys. Jimmy gets on the mic to say damn right they're the greatest, they're the ones, and he's the Tribal Chief. Roman's music hits...
  • Roman immediately gets in Jey's face, and Jey dodges eye contact, with Roman knocking the mic out of his hand. He gets in Jimmy's face, and Jimmy too averts his eyes as his mic is knocked out of his hand as well. Sami says, Roman, you know it's over, right? The Bloodline is collapsing and it's all Roman's fault. Roman knocks Sami's mic out of his and and goes to stare him down when Owens hits him with a stunner. It devolves into a melee and Solo Sikoa joins them. Roman spears Sami Zayn as the punctuation mark. The Usos grab the tag team titles; Jey hands his to Solo, but Jimmy hesitates. Jey pulls him aside and goes to take the belts, but Jimmy momentarily won't let go. He eventually does though and Jey hands the set of belts to Roman. The show ends with Roman taking all four belts and holding them in the air, Jey & Solo throwing up the 1s, but Jimmy stews in the corner...

Next week's Smackdown will be live from Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Blockmole Is Coming
Hello Cudonians, can you recall our last blog where we spoke about CUDOS Markets? Well, Blockmole will be issuing the first NFT Collection launched on the CUDOS Markets.

What Is Blockmole?

Blockmole is a socially responsible crypto mining company that provides sustainable Bitcoin mining services. It utilizes renewable energy sources that are stuck and wouldn't be completely functional without crypto mining. Henceforth, building out sustainable infrastructure and bringing positive change to the crypto mining.

How Sustainable Is Blockmole?

The goal at Blockmole was to establish a mining company that was truly sustainable. Although it uses 100% renewable energy, implying that every part of the journey was beneficial to the environment from reusing the heat produced to warm homes, dry wood, and heat salmon hatcheries. As a result, their mining activities produce no carbon emissions and are good for the environment and local communities.

Blockmole Infrastructure

Blockmole uses the latest ASIC mining equipment with cutting-edge computer management systems, even down to the level of a single chip, They are able to track and regulate the operation's performance effectively.

Blockmole Local Partners

Blockmole has local partners in both Norway and Paraguay In Norway, the local partner is InfraNorway. They are extending towards Norway's northern areas in order to release renewable energy that has been captured. For instance, many of the hydro potential in the north are found in places with little demand for electricity, employment, or infrastructure.
In Paraguay, the local partner is Penguin Digital. They are contributing to the development of a cutting-edge campus project that unites high performance computing data centers with a technology college to educate the upcoming generation of hardware and software engineers.

Artist Behind The Blockmole Collectibles

Do you want to guess who the popular artist behind the Blockmole Collectibles is? If you said Delux3 AKA RickBakas(on twitter) then you are 100% correct!!!
Delux3 is a contemporary American digital artist with roots in the street art movement. He is a self-taught artist who worked as a designer at NIKE for 8 years creating graphics for professional sports teams, Nike Apparel, Nike Basketball and marquee footwear including graphics for the Jason Kidd Air Zoom and Air Turbulence. In the late 1990s, he started painting on public property in the Pacific Northwest before switching to canvas. He transitioned to digital art in the latter half of 2021, developing his own distinctive digital brushes with vivid colors, paint splatters, and natural textures that mimic the style of street art. The Delux3 art style can best be described as ‘refined street art’ thoughtfully composed with unexpected color combinations that have deep tonal layers. Check out the most recent works of the digital art pieces.

Blockmole Collectibles

Blockmole mining is changing the narrative of crypto mining making it green and sustainable by launching the world’s first sustainable mining Hashrate Collectibles in partnership with CUDOS Markets. The Collectibles are NFT in their own right, each NFT will have a certain amount of attached hash rate that corresponds to the NFT's price. Each collection will have 5 tiers of NFT’s with different hashrate attached to it. The tiers include Blue Diamond, Diamond, Emerald, Ruby and Opal Respectively. Blue Diamond having the highest hashrate and Opal having the lowest hashrate. By owing the NFT, you will earn the associated mining rewards over the next 4 years (After cost) and it also provides a systematic way to accumulate Bitcoin.


In Conclusion, Blockmole Mining will only use energy sources that are truly sustainable, carbon-free, and beneficial to the local community. Hashrate collectibles will be an innovative approach to make crypto mining green and sustainable. The Blockmole Collectibles is expected to drop in Q2 of 2023 I am looking forward to Redefining the Crypto mining model with Blockmole and CUDOS Markets.

"the larger behavioral health centers that we've talked to arn't interested in going and trying to figure this all out but they do want to partner with somebody who can come in and set up in a couple of rooms and so our licensing infrastructure allows for anything from a full purpose built even to just being able to license all the operational infrastructure so that someone can convert a room in their clinic to be able to offer MDMA therapy"

"Their (MAPS) big conference that they've got next month, Rick just told me this morning that they're anticipating about 10,000 people for that conference and to give you a sense, you know we were talking about what's the appetite for practitioners - that's a conference that's primarily geared towards practitioners of which they've got 10,000 people expected and the cost of that conference is about $1,700 for the practitioner section, so gives you a strong indication of what the size of the appetite is at the moment"

"So a part of that, the two therapist model proposed by MAPS, a part of the big intention is the second participant could potentially be able to be a trainee and that will allow for the scaling of training and the building out of the service network and also should be able to contribute to bringing some of the cost down as well. If one person is a trainee and one person is a therapist obviously you don't have to pay for the trainee's time"

"When I formed Numinus 5 years ago, it was from a conversation that I had with Rick around how do we support MAPS the best and most significantly and that was the whole ethos for building Numinus was the recognition that there's going to be a pivotal moment where clinical trials are complete and we now need to shift gears very quickly to build a provider network, so we've obviously worked very closely with MAPS for a number of years, now with the completion of their phase 3 clinical trials and with focus directing towards commercialization, I can't get into too much detail but I think there's going to be significant efforts towards forging relationships that speed up the path towards commercialization"

"We're going to provide some more information and guidance on this shortly but I think as we look at scale as we think about the training of practitioners and the setting up of rooms. Just in our own infrastructure and we've put out a little bit of information today around extending the burn rate which I know has been a concern for everybody but with that we haven't included anything in regards to MDMA and if you just talked about training, training is for the virtual component about $2,500 and then when you include supervision and the experiential component it's about another $2,500 so even just on training itself over the next year as we set up the infrastructure, there's really significant revenue opportunities and the majority of that revenue is going to be very high margin because the majority of that service is virtual"

Q) Speaking of guidance, the Numinus Network, you haven't provided any guidance in terms of the splits of the revenue or income generated will go to the therapists verse the company. Is that something you're going to provide at a future date?
"Yea, absolutely, you'll see all of that shortly and it'll be posted on our website as we kind of launch we've had a bit of a backlog of people that are interested in becoming network providers so we haven't needed to put out too much information yet but there will be a lot of information that goes up on our website and kind of a dedicated resource to what does this financially mean for the practitioner and all that's provided in the licensing model as well"

Both President Joe Biden and House speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) have stated publicly that the U.S. will not default. They are negotiating over the budget. For my part, I’ve started to wonder if the whole debt ceiling crisis isn’t about Republicans’ determination to cut taxes for the wealthy at all costs.
When Ronald Reagan called for tax cuts in 1980, he argued that tax cuts would concentrate money in private hands, enabling investors flush with cash to build the economy. That growth would keep tax revenues stable even with the lower rates. That was the argument, but it never came to pass. In fact, a 2022 study by political economists David Hope and Julian Limberg shows that “tax cuts for the rich…do not have any significant effect on economic growth or unemployment,” but they do “lead to higher income inequality in both the short- and medium-term.”
Indeed, Estelle Sommeiller and Mark Price of the Economic Policy Institute, an independent, nonprofit think tank, noted in 2018 that 1% of all families in the U.S. take home 21% of all the income in the U.S., making 26.3 times more than the bottom 99%, whose average income is slightly more than $50,000 a year. On average in the U.S., someone would need an annual income of slightly more than $420,000 to be a member of that top 1%. In 2020, annual wages for the top 1% grew by 7.3% while those in the bottom 90% grew just 1.7%.
A 2020 study by Carter C. Price and Kathryn A. Edwards of the RAND Corporation showed that the changing economic distribution systems of the past forty years have moved a staggering $50 trillion upward, out of the hands of the bottom 90% of Americans. (The national debt is currently about $31.5 trillion.)
Nonetheless, today’s Republicans continue to insist that cutting taxes promotes growth. Today, Representative Bob Good (R-VA) talked over journalist Katy Tur to defend his support for extending the Trump tax cuts, which are due to expire in 2025 and which the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates will add $3.5 trillion to the debt. Good insisted that tax cuts are “incentivizing the right things.”
Leaving the White House today, McCarthy told reporters that he would not entertain rolling back the 2017 Trump tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations. “[T]he problem is not revenue,” he insisted. “The problem is spending.”
But the Trump tax cuts and Trump's increased spending even before the pandemic ultimately added $7.8 trillion to the national debt, about $23,500 for every person in the country. The increase in the annual deficit under Trump was the third-biggest increase of any administration, relative to the size of the economy. He was beaten out only by George W. Bush and Abraham Lincoln. Bush, of course, led the U.S. into two foreign conflicts that were financed almost entirely through debt (in the past, the U.S. paid for war through taxes and war bonds), after Congress cut taxes by about 8% for the wealthiest Americans. Lincoln fought the Civil War.
“It’s not that Americans are taxed too little, it’s that Washington spends too much,” Russ Vought, Trump’s acting budget director, wrote in 2019. He was defending Trump’s 5% budget cuts to nondefense discretionary spending.
President Biden’s 2024 budget proposes to reduce the federal deficit by $3 trillion over the next decade by raising taxes on those who make more than $400,000 a year. His budget would effectively repeal the Trump tax cuts for the wealthy, restoring the top tax rate to 39.6% rather than the 37% the 2017 cuts established. It would also raise corporate taxes from 21%, to which the 2017 tax cuts dropped them, to 28%, lower than the high of 35% before the Trump tax cuts.
Biden’s budget also calls for taxing capital gains at about the same rate as income for those making more than $1 million, and it calls for a new tax on unrealized capital gains. It also seeks to close loopholes that enable high earners to avoid taxes. Funding for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that was passed in the Inflation Reduction Act will enable the IRS to go after tax cheats who make more than $400,000 a year, netting an estimated $204 billion through 2031.
But the Republicans say they will not agree to any tax hikes of any sort, and the right-wing extremists in the Freedom Caucus have said they would not agree to anything but the bill McCarthy muscled through the House by promising it would never become law. That bill, called Limit, Save, Grow, would cut discretionary government programs by at least 18%—more if Social Security, Medicare, and veterans’ benefits aren’t included. “My conservative colleagues for the most part support Limit, Save, Grow, and they don’t feel like we should negotiate with our hostage,” said right-wing Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
As Catherine Rampell of the Washington Post pointed out last week, the bill also forces Congress to approve every “major” regulation proposed by a government agency, with the recognition that Congress is unlikely to agree to any such regulation, thus unraveling the federal government.
Senator Rick Scott (R-FL), who before the 2022 election called for sunsetting all laws every five years, forcing Congress to repass all discretionary spending, today fell back on the idea that Democrats calling for addressing the deficit through taxation are socialists. Poking fun at the recent travel advisories by LGBTQ, immigrant, and Black rights organizations warning against visiting Florida, he issued a “formal travel advisory” for “socialists” “in direct response to the Biden Administration attempts to erase capitalism and the system that has brought prosperity to Florida and the entire United States.”
And yet it was the Republican Party that originally established the pattern of turning to increasing revenue to enable the government to meet its financial obligations, a pattern members of both parties relied on until 1981. Faced in 1861 with funding the Civil War, members of the Republican Party invented the U.S. income tax and graduated it to make sure that “the burdens will be more equalized on all classes of the community, more especially on those who are able to bear them,” as Senator William Pitt Fessenden (R-ME) put it.
Justin Smith Morrill (R-VT) agreed. “The weight [of] taxation must be distributed equally,” he said, “Not upon each man an equal amount, but a tax proportionate to his ability to pay.” The government had a right to “demand” 99 percent of a man’s property for an urgent necessity, Morrill said. When the public required it, “the property of the people…belongs to the Government.”
Far from objecting to taxes, Americans asked their congressmen to raise them, out of concern about the growing national debt. In 1864, Senator John P. Hale (R-NH) said: “The condition of the country is singular…I venture to say it is an anomaly in the history of the world. What do the people of the United States ask of this Congress? To take off taxes? No, sir, they ask you to put them on. The universal cry of this people is to be taxed.”
Those taxes helped to pay for the war and, after it, to repay the debt. And in 1866, when Confederate-sympathizing Democrats tried to undermine support for the government by changing the terms of that debt to make it less valuable, Republicans wrote into the Constitution that “the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.”

2023.05.23 08:38 Vomit_Entrepreneur Anyone know anything about a Hollywood assault case TrueAnon was researching a couple years ago?

I have been occupying myself by combing through a bunch of LAPD records requests and came across something that Liz was researching at one point. All the info available is that there was a police report #180814652 for a 911 call reporting an incident of "assault/forcible rape" on the 10400 block of Bellagio Road in Bel Air at 1am on August 13, 2018.
I'm generally decent at research but I cannot find anything on this incident besides the requests for the police report itself. I've looked into a bunch of high profile assault cases and none of them quite line up.
The records requests to the LAPD:
All of the requests were denied on the grounds that the records are part of a current investigation. Based on the location of the call and the interest from the media, I assume this involves someone high-profile. Maybe I'm stupid and one of you will immediately know what this is about, but I have tried reading an awful lot of stories, random gossip blogs, twitter rumor mills, etc. and can't find anything.
This neighborhood has long been a Hollywood power center, with residents ranging from Hitchcock to Beyonce and Jay-Z, to the Getty family guy caught with over 1,000 guns. On the 10400 Bellagio block itself there's only 8 houses but it's always a who's who of Hollywood elite. It's the location of Brian Wilson's home and recording studio in the '60s during the Manson stuff, Lori Laughlin/Mossimo Giannulli were living there before the admissions scandal, Former CEO of Warner Bros. and Yahoo lived there before allegedly becoming a victim of elder abuse by his wife, Meghan Markle's entertainment attorney Rick Genow, the woman who tried to buy the Weinstein Company in 2017, Ross Perot Jr, etc. The list goes on.

  • Capturing Pandora – James Cameron’s approach to performance capture has the cast performing in a volume rigged with infrared cameras to capture their movement, and head rig cameras to capture emotion on their faces with only the boundaries of imagination to limit them.
  • The Undersea World of Pandora – Co-production designer Dylan Cole and his team conceive of the marine creatures required for Avatar: The Way of Water while James Cameron and his stunt team devise extraordinary means to bring those creatures to life in a performance capture tank.
  • The Challenges of Pandora's Waters – James Cameron tackles the “non-trivial challenge” of performance capture above and below the water’s surface, utilizing a wave machine and current generator to reproduce ocean conditions, and underwater vehicles to replicate creature movement.

  • Pandora’s Next Generation – Meet the talented young newcomers who have been cast as the next generation of Na’vi and follow them through the adventure of making Avatar: The Way of Water.
  • Spider's Web – James Cameron introduced the human character of Spider into the fabric of Pandora – thus creating a host of technological challenges on set…and an incredible journey for the young actor, Jack Champion.
  • Becoming Na’vi – The Avatar cast is immersed in the culture of the indigenous Na’vi, living off the land in the Hawaiian rainforest and training in a multitude of disciplines in preparation for their roles.
  • The Reef People of Pandora – In true James Cameron-style, the Metkayina reef clan has been developed with great attention to detail, bearing unique evolutionary traits and a culture – with new dwellings, new clothes and different way of life – all a result of living off the ocean.
  • Bringing Pandora to Life – Once James Cameron completes his virtual production process, every sequence is turned over to Wētā FX to bring Pandora to life – with unprecedented advancements in facial performance, environments and making CG water look real.

  • The New Characters of Pandora – Meet the important new characters of the Avatar saga played by Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Edie Falco, Brendan Cowell and Jemaine Clement.
  • The Sounds of Pandora – Hear how James Cameron worked with composer Simon Franglen to create the distinctive music of The Way of Water while building on James Horner’s brilliant score for Avatar, and learn how Chris Boyes created the immersive sounds of Pandora.
  • New Zealand – Pandora’s Home – The production of the Avatar sequels is so thoroughly ensconced in New Zealand that James Cameron considers The Way of Water a “New Zealand film.” Hear reflections from the cast and crew, including the remarkable New Zealand crew, on making the film.

2023.05.20 04:45 Fickle-Exchange2017 Season 2, Ep 51, Recap


Beaks nearly destroyed our party and there isn't really an explanation for it. I've listened to the episode over and over and I cannot tell for the life of me why they were itchy for the Griffin beak. They just wanted it badly. \shrugs** Back outside the entrance to the volcano, our Party was left in the open to defend themselves from the remaining bird-lions. Knowing that this is a fight they might wanna avoid, we grow a brain and realize that we don't have to fight them! We can just run into the cave! One by one, they each dash into the cave after a short encounter with the Griffins and we suddenly outnumber the kings guards who had retreated inside themselves. Fritz entangles the two remaining guards in his natures vines and well... Capt Bran clearly sees that he's outnumbered and outmatched. Thankfully he complies to the groups set of questions and we find out that the king is indeed heading to the last magic font. Delving deeper into these caves we come to a fork in the road. Heading left, we approach a small opening. Not a room, but a wide crevice that's as big as a room....and there's a dead body lumped against the stone wall. It looks like a prune. It's been here so long that it's dried up and looking mummied. On the walls are strange symbols, like runes and that's when we notice that the breach is actually something more. It's as if it's missing something, like another side to it? Hmmmmm

Party roll to beat = 2 Steven 11 Cory NAT 1 Matt 15 Dusty 8 Vanessa 18 It was a low threshold to party. Dive bar, biker tits and cold beers.

Back to the Party!

They have just gotten into a large opening where we then are in a fairly large crevice where the body was. They continue away from this but still on the path, without backtracking. Going further down it begins to get dark...really dark...but we can make out to our left, a very large opening, to the right, is kinda of a narrow corridor that looks like it leads into a larger area. We stick left. At the very end of it, we see a figure. It's very large and clade in plate mail standing pretty still. Oooouff....okay lets head back and avoid that potential mess, so we do! Towards the narrow corridor we go, to the right edge of the room, there is an opening, on the left corner tho, we see something on the wall...IT'S ANOTHER RUNE! WITH ANOTHER DEAD BODY UNDER IT. Crispy body again, looks almost dead similar to the last guy. (see what I did there?) We inspect the room and it looks like another rune piece, which they charcoal rub to get an etching. A picture starts to form when they add their previous etching that I didn't mention in that last recap. Now, we see the corridor and towards the end, a bight red glow protrudes...
Fumbles, roll stealth up to see what's up NAT 20! He sees the red tunnel, it dips down, with goatish intuition, it's highly presumed that it leads to magma. BUT he also sees a faint shimmering just ahead of his goat eyes...
Fumbles, roll stealth up to see what's up with that faint shimmering 3 Approaches the shimmering effect and notices that he can't advance any further.
Oh but what's this?! There was another room we could of entered?! We backtrack and go to it. It's a wild open area, a sprier in the middle, connect from the floor to the ceiling... To the right, another opening. So we head there and it's more cave! We see.....another symbol and a rune above it. Etch a sketch that bish and when placed together, make....A TRIANGLE symbol.
That's when he notice on 'Huskers', the dead body that Fumbles is willingly carrying around, has a burn spot on the palm of his hand. Jedwyn confirms that the other corpse also has a faint burn mark with a rune etched in their palm.
Based on the ramblings of Jedwyn, it's presumed that the Shimmering Fumbles encountered might be linked to these here Runes. And the rune burns in these corpse hands suggest they might have to place the hands, on the runes, to get through the shimmering force wall.
Back to the party

So we gather the third corpse that has the rune burn in and head towards the shimmering force wall room. Our party tries placing the corpse hands together, to placing them on the shimmering wall and all that really gets accomplished is a "Weekend at Bernie's" moment. Seems like we have to head back and face that armor plated figure. AYE YAH YAH.
Once again, we dabble back left and into the room to see the figure, which has shifted now, sitting, with the back against the wall. Carl 7 approaches him.
Carl 7 approaches him, the figures raises his head. Carl 7 sees that he is very large, charcoal colour skin, bright red hair, he looks up...

Seeing that he appears friendly, our party engages in talks with this giant. They ask if he's seen a bad man, goes by Talantis....Seems like this jolly giant HAS heard of him and felt like that guy was full of himself. His name is WILLIAM, or Willy Plates. They ask Willy how to get pass the shimmering force wall and the Giant explains that it will be tricky. William also lets out that the King paid him in gold, to give out these little amulets to his guards and then to retireve them from their corpses. Mess up eh?! Back to the shimmering wall force preventing them from entering the room... The Giant explains that they gotta take the amulet, head to the respected areas and hold them up at the same time.
Being the most astute of them us all, Jedwyn asks if he has any more of these amulets. Of course William the giant does. But he wants a trade. Carl 7 has the broken head of the skeleton key that he offers up, but it doesn't tickle William's fancy. That's when Fritz hands over his metal can without an opening, that he got way back when they first arrived at the island in the Inn by the grifter. William shakes it and is smitten by it. But he wants more. Jedwyn tosses his bag of gold, 1000pc's and Fumbles plays green sleeves on his bag pipes.
Roll for Persuasion
Carl Seven 10 Fumbles 13 Jedwyn 17 Fritz 17
Willy the Giant looks at the boons given to him, he is overwhelmed by the music and the trinkets and collects himself. He turns around to a pile behind him and finds the amulets, which Fritz takes. They ask him to come along to help, but he declines. Fritz divvy's out the amulets; they come up with a genius plan of placing the amulets back into the corpse hands and using them again for this ritual. Just one problem. They have 2 corpses' and 3 amulets...someone is gunna have to be the 3rd.... Fritz takes the honors.
The devise a shroud but workable plan, where arrows will be driven into the corpses hands to stick to the wall, while the amulet it placed between it and its corresponding symbol.
Carl 7, Roll Strength to jam arrow into the wall 15 Yeah, that's good enough

The hand of the corpses starts to blacken when the amulet touches the symbol and starts to smoke. Jedwyn places his hand with the amulet on the symbol and he starts to feel a burning sensation. So much for Fritz. Fumbles runs to the force field, sees it shimmering, but it looks like its weakening. The group realizes a few things...whoever is holding the 3rd amulet is either going to take lots of damage or not be able to go through. There is a lot of talk as to what to do, even using the guards they entangled up at the entrance for this puzzle. But there is another way.... We can always ask Willy the Giant for help. But he's gunna want more boons.
Okay, it gets a little overly complex here. I think from what I hear, the plan stays the same and Carl 7 with his scabbard of heat protection, runs to the 3rd location with the amulet. His hands starts to glow, takes damage, then seperatly, some party memebers run to the other locations? and hold the amulet up. I dunno what the hell is going on, but people are taking small damage. But a loud sound is finally made and the force field is finally down.

Roman asks them to acknowledge him, drop off his titles & go. KO throws his belt and his mic. Roman says his only regret is wasting his life on Sami, and Sami says his only regret is not blasting him with the chair sooner. Sami says they won't get his titles because he's not as good as they are, and in fact they're not as good as the Usos either. Roman starts going on about having given him every opportunity and the Usos ambush from behind. Roman then yells at the Usos saying he didn't ask them to help and leaves the ring.
  • Backstage Roman yells at the Usos reminding them who is in charge. He had something he wanted to say and he didn't get to say it because they did what they wanted to do, not what's been working for them and kept them at the top of the mountain. HE makes the choices. He then kicks the Usos out.
  • Zelina Vega is interviewed by Kayla Braxton backstage. She realizes after her time in Puerto Rico that she belongs, and Asuka will see that she is ready.

  • It's time for the first episode of The Grayson Waller Effect on SmackDown, with guest AJ Styles! Grayson asks, what will his match vs Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship mean to him? AJ talks about his injury and how much he's trained since to get back, and now he has this opportunity that he wants more than the air he breathes, and he is ready. Waller says he's looking forward to the ending, "and NEWWWWW World Heavyweight Chamion, Seth Freakin' Rollins!" AJ gets in his face.
  • Backstage with the LWO. Rey Mysterio notes that The Usos are best in the world, but tonight they'll learn what happens when you mess with the LWO.

  • Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez relinquished the Women's Tag Team Championship due to Liv's injury. Talking with Kayla Braxton, Bayley & IYO SKY interrupt to note that Dakota was also injured and they blame her. They ask her to find her a partner for a rematch.
  • Austin Theory enters the ring to speak to the crowd. He expected he'd get more respect coming to SmackDown last week, not being ganged up on by two former champions. And Sheamus was world champion when he was, what, 13? Sheamus then comes to the ring. Theory asks if he's got something to say, Sheamus hits him with a brogue kick, then drops his mic.
  • Paul Heyman runs into the Usos backstage and tells them that the Tribal Chief forgives them. They ask, so he's gonna be out there tonight? Heyman says no, he's got a lot going on, but it's just the LWO, so no big deal right? The Usos aren't happy, begrudgingly agree, with Jimmy saying "yee" with a stonkface.
