    Kylie Rae is wrestling tonight for freelance wrestling. Smoke continues to build around her AEW release, but very glad to see she hasn't turned her back on wrestling as she's a great talent.

    From the looks of it, that's basically what she is.

    Good to see her back, but it makes why she quit all the more interesting.

    It's rumoured that she had a breakdown as a result of bullying/confrontations with Cody and Brandi. Explains why Meltzer is acting like he doesn't know anything and nothing's getting out. Don't know who is right or wrong in the situation.

    With Cody and Brandi? I've heard it might be something to do with a higher management problem but I never heard anything about those two being involved

    The word is she was upset after the 4th July photoshoot about something and shit went down.

    Just rumours obviously but would explain why Meltzer isn't sharing much. Gotta keep shilling.

    Might just be an extremely private issue also but given her return, I feel there was a schism backstage in AEW that caused her departure.

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Bloodsport II thoughts:

    - Carelli was totally badass. Shame he has retired full-time because he looked like he could potentially be awesome doing this on a regular basis. Carelli vs Thatcher on the next Bloodsport, book it

    - Thatcher vs Minowaman was fine. Minowa has only worked a few matches so far and it kinda showed but the effort was there. Didn't feel like they really clicked but Thatcher sold the victory big time.

    - DBS Jr vs Filthy Tom was good, final minutes in particular were pretty great and the crowd lost their shit for it

    - Barnett vs Dickinson was real good and delivered what you want. Dug how the older Barnett was clearly overwhelmed by his younger opponent most of the match but had the grit to last it out. Probably my favourite Chris Dickinson match I can remember

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    Do we still talk about EVOLVE in this thread? WALTER vs Ohno was pretty good, but the finish was super abrupt and jarring. Not sure what was up with that. Everything before was a good, hard-hitting heavyweight throwdown. They do the "WALTER hits hand on post" trope, which is played out, but Ohno is one of the best at working over a body part and joint manipulation, and he does one sick spot with the tuckbuckle rigging. Still that finish was very WTF.

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    haha pretty much replied with the same problems on the finish in the video thread. They do the cool moment with the hand twisted in the turnbuckle spike spot, and Ohno looks like he's gonna be on top for a bit but strangely Ohno climbs the top rope for whatever reason and it costs him. Stopped it from being something great for me.

    The JD Drake match the night before is really good too.

    yea briggs is lame

    just watched WALTER vs drake and thought it was really good, but again, a weird abrupt finish. WALTER really needs to work on his finishes, but he's still my clear WOTY.

    I know it's not really a promo, but God damn he's still the best talker in the business by a long way. Glad he's sticking around.

    Yeah I heard about this first via a highspots video interview with Ethan Page, but great news he's staying around. Hope he gets his big break soon.

    It seems I was the only one who remembered that Eddie said unless something big happens, he'll retire. I guess there is something big. Glad he is sticking around.
