Gonna brush the tumbleweeds aside to mention that yesterday was my birthday *and* yesterday CM Punk returned to pro wrestling with AEW. Coincidence or an extra special present from AEW to me? I prefer to think its the latter. You're welcome.

So I'm not trying to write some diatribe or anything and it's more curiosity at this point, but is this still active or what's going on here? Just feels like for the past 18 months or so there's been constant talk about how ways to improve and speed up the process and make it a more efficiently run e-fed before it inevitably peters out and we're back to averaging one show every three months. It's reached the point where I have to legitimately ask who, if anyone, is still here or is it just me and I'm the dude from that Twilight Zone episode who finally has time to read all his books*?
*I was torn between that or a Will Smith from I Am Legend reference but I dunno, I think I made the right choice.
I've got to echo that sentiment though. Have the wheels fallen off? Seems like there's no one here posting, and seems like Thunder doesn't have the time IRL to run the place with any kind of regularity. That's not a dig at him, but if it is the case then I'd at least like us to address and maybe rectify it.
I do want to apologize for this delay. I will get the new show sign up now, which I’d been meaning to do.
The problem we’re in now is there’s a vicious cycle between lateness and lack of activity. Mesh was a better owner than me, and she did want to make improvements to this place and talked about it often. What happened what she got burned out and disillusioned when she felt like work was put in and engagement didn’t increase. I don’t like how she left, but I ultimately wasn’t surprised. She told me many times about how it was hard to put the work in if it felt like there wouldn’t be much reaction to it.
And honestly, it does become hard to be motivated as owner now. We only had one match on the last show, but the results turned out pretty well because we had a lot of strong segments that interconnected with each other. One person replied to it. Is anyone even reading this stuff?
I bear responsibility for the lateness and lack of engagement, which I know makes it hard for more people to get invested in this place. At the same time, it becomes hard to get up to do the work when it feels like it’s just going out into the void. And then the cycle repeats.
