How can any promoter justify having a human being use a razor blade to slice their head in 2021, when everyone watching knows what the wrestler is doing?  If someone we care about cuts themselves we get the help. Why do we accept it when wrestlers do it?

I am probably not the one to ask that because I hate whenever someone does it, for a few reasons.  One, it’s barbaric.  Two, it could lead to infections, or worse.  Three, in the old days many, if not most, fans had no idea that a wrestlers was intentionally slicing themselves to bleed in a match.  Now?  We all know that is exactly what they are doing so I just don’t think it has any place in the business in 2021.  I get that some people like watching others slice themselves and bleed, but for me, it turns me off to the match immediately.  If someone legitimately gets busted open, I don’t like it but if it’s not intentional it happens.  To knowingly choose to cut yourself?  I just don’t understand why it’s still done.

What was your take of Thunder Rosa vs. Britt Baker?

I thought they worked super hard and I would have loved the match if they hadn’t bladed.  Once Britt started gushing, it totally took me out of the match.  As I said above, I hate blading so that hurt the match a lot for me.  And the fact that someone with a medical background would do that to herself is really surprising to me.  With that said, it was the best women’s match I have seen in AEW.  I just wish they didn’t use the blood.  If I believed in the ridiculous star rating system, the blood would have cost the match one star, at least, from me.

How do you compare it to Kay Lee Ray vs. Meiko Satomura?

You really want the AEW fans to get ticked at me again don’t you?  Well, you asked, I will answer.  I liked Ray vs. Satomura better.  It is probably the best match of 2021 so far.  We all like what we like.

I saw someone say that there is no woman who is a bigger star in NXT or WWE than Britt Baker. What is your take?

As I said above, we all have a right to our opinions.  I would disagree, big time.  Off of the top of my head, Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair, Rhea Ripley, Kay Lee Ray, they are all bigger stars to me.  And three of them are on shows that draw a larger audience and demo number than AEW.

Tony Khan made his debut as a character on AEW on Monday when he he chastised Kenny Omega for a minor offense.  Where was the character on Dynamite when Omega was committing a serious felony?

In the back I guess.  That is the problem with debuting a character on TV, like Khan did on Monday.  It tells the fans that when things get out of hand, you will see him.  Then, on Wednesday, when Omega commits a much bigger offense than he did on Monday, Khan is missing.  It shows a lack of consistency.
