    A big thing John didn't mention while talking about WWE is that they taped live shows in Florida even before the Governor said that Wrestling was an essential service, and while doing so they fire and furlough 40 % of their staff, not because they struggling financially, but to make sure that made the high profits that they promised their investors. Not to mention while WWE had said their would be no punishment for wrestlers not showing up due to health worries, this hasn't been true, for explain, the Wrestler Sami Zayn was strip of his Title belt for choosing to stay home. Now compared to WWE, other Wrestling companies have been handling this pandemic with much more care. AEW for one choice to do pre -taped show until for roughly two month until the city of Jacksonville allowed them to do live show there, and even then a large amount of their stars and staff have been allow to choice if they wish to stay at home or not. But however in this Pandemic many smaller independent Wrestling have not been able to put on shows at all, and many independent wrestlers have been struggling during this time. So if you're are a fan of independent wrestling, do try to support them by buying one of their t-shirts to help them out.

    I'm leaving to watch inanimate objects rolling down preconfigured tracks. Anything is better than watching this guy who looks like a parrot working at a bank. Except the bank is deserted because of COVID then the parrot gets depression and wants to jump off a bridge but he can't because he's a parrot and parrots can fly.

    Oh, come on John. Citing that wrestling is an essential service is a stroke of genius. There is no better, no other way than that to keep the millions of stupid Floridians content and at home. It's not like they'll ever run out of plot twists for "Days of our Wrestling". Hell. If we ran 24/7 premium wrestling and Monster truck rallies across America for the next six months, the Democrats would win by a landslide.

    huh i totally forgot about the olympics but yeah makes sense that they moved it but wow that must be one hell of a nightmare for the organizers like most of the other leagues it just involves not using the venues and maybe some refunds and date shuffling but the olympics are not just about the sports but the spectacle as well.

    I would really love to see an episode about how many children have killed people with unsecured guns in the US. As a Canadian journalist, it's been severely frustrating to learn that they don't keep statistics about that. They do, of course, keep statistics about men who have shot themselves in the penis, for which I am eternally grateful. (It's an average of two per year, if you're curious.) Edit: And what the hell happened to episodes 4 and 5 for COVID-19??

Our Family and friends keep getting caught up in scams like this and the level of brainwashing involved is phenomenally disastrous for millions of victims around the world... its particularly bad here in South Africa. #johnvsdimaryp

    Hearthstone is easily the best sport to watch during this time: exciting, same strong fanbase, same sports feel, and no human contact needed. Maybe Esports in general (DOTA 2 would work as well) - but Hearthstone is the most fun to watch.
