I'm disappointed Ramza didn't do a bit better. I actually gave him some saves (and likely sacrificed Seph for him) which is just not really something to be expected from me.

But I can't be disappointed in Gaffgarion as the last one standing. Outside of Algus he is the best FFT character after all.

Like to continue on the tangent of the spaghetti I would consider the default for spaghetti to use the tomato based sauce.

But if someone gives me some fried up spaghetti with olive oil and parmesan, no sauce, it's still spaghetti.

Well, I don't think anyone is arguing that the sandwich is not the default, just whether it can be acceptable to call just the sauce in a bowl sloppy joe. I'm certainly not at least.

AEW's roster is super top and bottom heavy and it needs more fleshing out in the mid level right now. Shuttling more guys into the main event scene immediately seems like a poor use of resources-- putting relatively more unknown guys in there temporarily to give them some baseline of credibility and interest, then revolving them out for the next guy, seems smarter to me.

I think the goal ideally was to make Darby be a guy you're always thinking has a chance to win a high stakes match, but not necessarily the guy who is going to reliably win that match, if that makes sense.

Like Darby's already had the resource of "competitive draw with Cody" and "pushed the champion to the limit" spent on him-- you can't do that with every guy you want to elevate otherwise it starts to lose meaning, and the top rung doesn't really need more people right now. It makes more sense to use him to help build Hager who then is used as a trick to get another lower card guy who needs some credibility over at the right time.

As a build up to lose to Darby Allin? I don't know. Midcarder with credibility seems like a good place to have him and is where he currently is. Darby to help build Hager who then loses to someone who actually needs a win seems more useful long term.

Hager is here to put people over


You can't have him debut on his back after all this hype for the guy. Otherwise he gets a stigma of a guy that isn't really made to be taken seriously and is actually just there to put people over. That's not to say he can't ultimately be for that but that can't be the perception, especially considering his WWE history.

It's the same reason no one ever gets anything out of beating returning legends in the WWE. Hager needs to feel like an actual roster member, not some jobber that only is there because he has some base amount of name value.

Like I'm not saying he needs to win every match, but putting Darby, who frankly is as high on the totem pole as he currently needs to be, over him, just seems like a poor move.

I'll concede it's typically in sandwich form but because it's a specific sauce used for that dish I would argue it doesn't need to be to be identifiable as a sloppy joe

Like if someone is blinded, given a spoonful of the Sloppy Joe sauce they'll identify it as Sloppy Joe. That's enough to make the distinctive element the sauce not the sandwich nature. Like bologna is typically served on sandwiches too but you'd never argue bologna must be served on a sandwich to be bologna

I'm saying the defining characteristic of the Sloppy Joe is the specific type of meat sauce used in it. The bun is just a typical delivery method.

A sandwich is a sandwich because of the structure, specifically. It's like a pie. You can have a ton of types of pies, not all needing the same kind of crust or filling, but they all need to be in the same kind of overall structure.

Sloppy Joe is not structure based naming convention so the bun is not important. It's more like spaghetti, a dish which is named after the noodle. As long as you have that noodle as your overwhelmingly primary ingredient you can call it spaghetti no matter what sauce or cheese or whatever you cover or garnish it with. Similarly Sloppy Joe is the specific sauce which is not tomato sauce nor chili sauce like people in the topic have been dumbing it down to, but its own thing.

Like the reason a BLT tossed in a bowl is no longer a BLT but a salad is because BLT is shorthand for Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich.

If you had some idiots on like epic meal time or something replace the bread with solid sheets of bacon and it held structure it'd still rightly be called a BLT.

This is of course at odds with my thoughts on pizzas earlier but I was just saying I think pizzas have been abused and we've got some wacky things passing for pizzas these days. I do understand what the definition of a pizza is and why you can't just throw crust meat sauce and cheese mixed in a bowl and call it a day, but I'd call that casserole closer to the soul of a pizza than some of these things let me tell ya.

Anyway

A sandwich is not longer a sandwich if you remove the bread.


A sandwich is defined by the fact that it's an edible container that has more edible ingredients stuffed in it, not the bread specifically.

Sandwich can be a sandwich without bread if you preserve the overall structure with other ingredients. Case in point an Ice Cream sandwich.

In fact really the bread in that spaghetti analogy is actually the meat sauce when you think about it, despite intuition being "duh meat sauce: meat sauce"

Spaghetti is the noodle and is the defining characteristic of spaghetti as a dish. You can have it without a sauce of any sort. It's still spaghetti. It being traditionally served with a tomato based sauce of some sort doesn't mean you can't have it without.

Similarly the defining characteristic of a Sloppy Joe is the topping which you won't find anywhere else. If you're saying "it's just chili" I suspect the Sloppy Joes you typically eat are bootleg because it's definitely distinct from any type of canned chili you'll find-- it's got a slight sweetness to it, mostly, but yeah it's distinctive in a few ways that I haven't seen in canned chili that doesn't specifically market itself as Sloppy Joe mix.

Which is to say... *removes shirt to reveal another shirt that has a bun with an x over it*

These analogies are poor because a Sloppy Joe is prepared with a specific type and seasoning of meat sauce that can exist without bread and is distinctly only used in Sloppy Joes.

Spaghetti is literally the noodle type so saying it's like Spaghetti without Spaghetti is strange to say the least.

Which is a good enough story to make me accept that said opponent lasted 20 minutes and gave him difficulty even after his hands were tied behind his back

Hager interference is just a bit too far beyond the pale for me.

I also think interference finishes in general just lead to a lot of plot holes so they should not be done except in the most rare circumstances but even putting that aside it just makes the champion and by extension title look bad

I really don't care about distraction nut shots as much as Iceman-- the stereo nut shot into Jack Evans's wacky pin was a great finish I thought

But why does Chris Jericho need interference to beat Darby Allin of all people especially when he's already immobilized his hands. That really upset me. Like I really hate outside interference. There is some art to cheating but just calling in help is so dumb anyone can do it.

And yeah the hype package for a show 3 weeks ahead that in theory wasn't set in stone didn't help either.

Like I said I think it's a combination of the factors I mentioned earlier.

Even when he was in the Shield he had distracting elements in Ambrose and Reigns to conceal missing pieces of his game. J&J did that as a heel singles guy.

Mostly I'm thinking his move set lacks impact and he doesn't have a very strong character to show. And these have both gotten worse over time because WWE encourages you to add this stuff and he's added bad stuff, and he's just not as convincing as a face and is a more natural as a heel.

But yeah now he has neither a manager nor tag partners and the wrong alignment so it's more glaring

Rollins added a lot to that match and it'd be dishonest to imply he was carried there.

Heck I'd find it closer to the truth to say J&J carried him more than Brock or Cena did because I do think they added a lot and part of me feels like say Miz with The B-Team could have done something similar there. Like how much was Rollins and how much was it generic scummy heel with two crash test dummy managers for Brock and Cena to demolish.

But still. Whatever the cause Rollins had a lot of good matches around that time.

Neither of them are very compelling performers.


Eh. Feels like revisionist history. 2016 Rollins was pretty compelling I thought. He had an amazing Rumble match against Lesnar and Cena and his match with Orton at that Mania was great too. He was on a roll around then.

Some combination of
heel Rollins > face Rollins
J&J Security adding a lot to the act and him not having enough depth without a manager
Rollins being corrupted by complacently working in WWE too long (he's added a lot of bad signature moves and mannerisms and such over the years which has made his character and matches worse) or just plain aging out of his skill

Ruined him. He used to be legit fun though. Roman on the other hand hasn't fallen off a cliff and probably is slightly better than 2016, and I'd call him the better of the two nowadays

Neither one is really face of the company level but 2016 Rollins was a lot closer than either one at least
