Lately, it can feel like we’re just going from one dogpile argument to the next. And since it’s Thanksgiving for a few more hours, I’m getting in my list of what I’m thankful for in pro wrestling, right under the wire.
A is for AEW, which provides competition to a company that pretends to wage internal wars
B is for Becky Lynch, who is still The Man, despite that dumb apology to Vince before Mania.
C is for Ciampa who is healthy enough to wrestle again and tell us “daddy’s home”
D is for Dave Bautista, Dana Brooke and their DMs — we might be getting worked, who cares? It beats Raw’s cuckoldry.
E is for Eddie Kingston — a king who’s willing to talk about mental health

F is for the Firefly Funhouse and the Fiend who lives there
G is for Gable, the only part of Chad Gable’s current gimmick I’ll say out loud
H is for Hiromu Takahashi, who’s back and hopefully stays healthy
I is for IPWF, the throwback promotion that Impact should make a semi-regular thing
J is for Josh Briggs, who’s one of the best guys on the indies today
K is for Kris Statlander, because it’s great to see the The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien getting on TV
L is for the Limitless Keith Lee, join the Leegion
M is for MOX, because wow that reveal video was fantastic
N is for Nov. 1, the Night NXT announced its presence with authority
O is for Orange Cassidy I guess
P is for Phil Brooks, star of Girl on the Third Floor ... aka CM Punk who is back (with FOX, not WWE, I know)
Q is for the Queen Charlotte Flair
R is for REEEGAL! who shouts “WARGAMES!” with proper anger
S is for Schadenfreude and Friends - Britwres ain’t dead, dummies
T is for Timothy Thatcher Just look at him:
U is for Uncharted Territory where Beyond is making stars
V is for Virgil, wait, I mean Soultrain Jones
W is for the Workhorsemen, Anthony Henry and JD Drake, who are going places
X is for Xavier Woods -- get well soon, Creed!
Y is for YES! chants, being brought back in a feud that ties back to Bryan and Wyatt’s history
Z is for Zaxbys for opening their eyes to the true influencer Malcolm Bivens
Please stop asking me about my whereabouts. I did not attack or pay someone to attack Mia Yim. I am at a Zaxby’s Leadership Conference in Portland, Oregon.— Malcolm Bivens (@Malcolmvelli) November 24, 2019
