Tyrus of GFW (fka Brodus Clay) is unhappy with creatives direction for him

Tyrus of GFW/Impact Wrestling & formerly Brodus Clay in WWE, Said today in an Instagram post that he’s upset with how GFW creative has used him over the past 4-5 tapings (Spoiler not much at all). He did it with dignity and class though & was just standing his ground.

   I’m gonna quote what he said word for word (Cause reporters don’t like to do that shit LOL) So here we go THIS is what Tyrus said verbatim in the IG video…….. “Wrestling fans, Impact fans. This is Tyrus here, My mentor Dusty Rhodes once told me the Wrestling business is like a canvas and I’m the Wrestler I gotta paint that Canvas, and at the end of the day it’s my canvas. Well I’ve been with Impact for more than 3 years now and 99% of it has been mostly positive and I’ve enjoyed my time here, But the last 4-5 tapings for me and my fans have been terrible, we’ve been handcuffed and treated like a 2nd class citizen creatively and we’ve worked too hard to become a cross over star to be treated like we’re not. Soooo I’m not happy creatively with the way Impact’s been treating me, Been playing phone tag all day with em (Management?) And I don’t got time for it. You don’t wanna use me the way I think I’ve earned the right to be used that’s cool! I’m about to get my Kaepernick on and I’m taking a knee, So I will not be at TNA tapings this week cause I’m on hold out status and if your good with that cool if not whatever it is, I’m not gonna be there till I’m treated rigbt, Nuff said”

   Though I will say Impact can’t just cater to Tyrus, they do need to at least give him something worthy of his talents. Not main event stuff but mid card stuff & being in a tag team would be great…… Like my friend BQ_KOTM on Twitter said I would hate being a body guard type character for so long especially with his cross over appeal and the stuff he has done with Fox & GLOW on Netflix. I just learned that Tyrus has landed a role on the new AMC show Preacher. I didn’t wanna say this but it’s looking like Impact has dropped the ball with Tyrus now just like WWE did all those years ago.

So It looks like Tyrus will not be at Impact till he is treated the way he rightfully should be. I say good on him for taking a stand and holding his ground on being treated well with Impact creatively, He’s too good to be sitting at home for months & months.

Preacher “Puzzle Piece” Review

   Let me start off by saying that Herr Starr is an awesome bad guy! The way the episode starts off with him spying on Jessie and not really seeing what’s so special about him seems cold and callous. Especially how he so nonchalantly called for him to kill him as it was a waste of his time. Sending out a hit squad that played out like a scene from a a Call of Duty Zombie mode (except with vampires). Jessie easily made short work of them. Then he literally called up a clean up crew for himself much to the surprise of Tulip as she awakened. This clean up crew also consisted of a police force to guard the house.

   While this was going on Herr Starr was on a date in which he had a woman do some funny stuff with butter.  The character is fascinating because comes off as a person without compassion, but it’s almost cartoonish. As he casually asks one of his workers to get him a rape fantasy. Note this is what his said casually as he was about to kill both of his agents in question but the gun jammed. It was also amusing that his agent just kept upping the ante with his sexual fetish till it’s climax (Pun Intended) It’s very surprising the amount of stuff Preacher is able to get away with without any controversy behind it.  It is refreshing that the show is giving such free range.


   Cassidy and Dennis relationship seems to be better after his transformation.  Dennis seems to be taken to his transformation a little too well if anything. It clearly was a surprise to Jessie via the way he found out too.  While it did seem like the right thing to do for his son I wonder if it will backfire. In the other relationship on the show it seems like more and more it’s becoming apparent that Jessie is using his power on Tulip in an unhealthy manner. It’s clearly uncomfortable that at any point he can just make her do what he wants. Even with his good intentions it seems he maybe addicted to it.

  The big surprise of the episode was Brad. At first it seemed that Brad maybe some else sent in to combat Jessie. Someone that Jessie was prepared for. What Jessie wasn’t prepared for is that Brad is actually B.RA.D which stands for Battle Ready Aerial Drone. On paper this sounds like the perfect way to handle Jessie. Unfortunately that plan went awry as the missile went off course. While that moment was kind of a whimper the ending with Jessie meeting Herr Starr makes up for it.

Overall a good episode of Preacher

Game of Thrones. “Eastwatch” Review

   After the thrilling conclusion of last week’s Game of Thrones it was great that we start off the episode right we’re we left.  It was also good that the show wasted no time letting you know that Bronn and Jamie was not dead.  The show also gave us a glimpse of  how even the good’s acts in the show are questionable as the last of the Tarley’s met there fate. It seems that Danaerys while her words maybe pure she still is ruling with fear instead of respect.  How many of those Lannister soldiers will be loyal if the fear is removed.  The conversation between Varys and Tyrion was very interesting indeed as Varys tells the story’s on how vile was Daenerys father.

  The conversation between Jamie and Cersei was also an interesting one indeed. As  Jamie tells her that they have no chance of winning without the dragons no less with the dragons. She knows they are gonna lose but they are in a lose lose situation as she explained. Her brother murdered Danaerys father and even if they surrendered she would most certainly sentenced them to death.

  The news of the White Walkers heading toward Eastwatch is most certainly troubling news.  Troubling enough to to have them come up with the crazy plan of Tyrion and Jamie meeting up. Even more tense was the meeting between Jamie and Cersei after that. Not only did she already know about the meeting but she wants Bronn to be punished for it. Also she so everly hinted that she will have Jamie killed at any sign of disloyalty. But an even bigger moment was the return of Gendry!!! They even made a very funny reference to his rowing. Apparently he was there the whole time as a blacksmith. It’s a passable excuse that was made good by the fact that he is pretty good with a hammer. Also the moment with him as Jon Snow was very amusing.

   Two great moments that may have been overlooked were Ayra’s conversation with Sansa and Arya spying on LittleFinger. It was a great move to have Arya call Sansa on her Bs and flat out say that she wants Jon’s spot. It’s almost to the point that she maybe as dangerous to Jon as Cersei. But it seems like it maybe a ruse setup by LittleFinger to turn the sisters against each other. He seems to be back in the drivers seat as he is one step ahead of Arya. It will be interesting to see watch comes of this. 

  The final moments of the episode are the most interesting as we are getting the teamup we never knew we wanted. We got the Hound, Jon Snow, Jor Mormont, Tormund and Davos to find a Whitewalker to bring to Cersei. Overall a slower pace episode this week that seems like this is gonna lead to an epic next episode that should be very exciting to watch.

Game of Thrones “The Spoils Of War” Review


   Let me start off by saying this is the best episode of the season! It’s very unfortunate that it had to be mired in so much controversy ( the episode leaked a week early).  The episode had so many big moments one at least being the gathering of the Stark kids.  It’s a great moment seeing all of them together and seeing how much they changed. Bran is no longer the bright upbeat child of the first season, Arya is not some tomboy but a very capable assassin and Sansa is now Lady of the North. It’s one  of the things this show has done so well by is giving you a plot point and tying them up neatly.

  

  The conversation between Jon and Daenerys seemed forced as Jon so happens to be looking for Dragon Glass and finds a cave painting with all of there ancestors working together against the White Walkers. Even more so the fact that even after he showed it to her she was like well you gotta bend the knee. No realization that they may all die and this is something that could be discussed after the immediate threat. On the other side of things it seems fitting that she is pissed with Tyrion because they were outsmarted and it costed them their allies. It was great to see Jon give insight that made him seem knowledgeable as a leader rather than someone who is desperate for help.

  On a side note how badass is Arya!!! Not only taking on Brianne of Tarth and winning but having the confidence to even challenge her.  More and more the show is giving us a reason to believe the Starks are the ones Cersei should worry about. Even with the North not being concerned with her at the time why is she not worrying about the fact that Jon Snow not only has an army but just defeated your biggest ally.

     

   Speaking about the Lannister’s not only was it great seeing Jaime in action but seeing Bronn again is always a treat. What followed their short lived victory that wasn’t even seen was an incredible battle that was Battle of the Bastards worthy!  This especially was a treat as it was the first battle between the Lannister and Targaryen armies. Also Daenerys is riding a freaking dragon!!!! The Targaryen fighting like savages seemed to be too much for the Lannister’s even without the Dragon. Also I hope the Lannister’s didn’t pay much for that so called Dragon Killer because it was trash.

All and all an awesome episode that will make you realize how great this show is. In a battle where I should clearly be rooting for the good guys a part of you wants to cheer for Jaime and Bronn. We’ve watched these characters growth for so long and much like Tyrion we are nothing but bystanders watching this battle go on. 

Score 9.5 out of 10
