    We'll find out today, when Becky Lynch from Ireland faces Kairi Sane from the Empire of Japan on the USA Network.

    Lynch has a 5 inch height advantage and 20 lbs weight advantage over the Japanese broad. But it the Pirate Princess can deliver her patented Insane Elbow, anything can happen in the WWE.

    Anything CAN happen in the WWE.

    Except reality.

    I'll go with UFC.

    How any self-respecting adult can watch that fake wrestling nonsense I’ll never know.

    I've been a student of the game since the 1960's. My grandmother was a big fan of Bruno Sammartino.

    The thing about other sports, is sometimes you get a real stinker of a match. Klitschko vs Fury was a real bore to me in boxing. I don't know what will happen with the Fury vs Strowman this week at Crown Jewels in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. But I bet its pretty interesting.

    And the fight tonite, Lynch v Sane will be pretty interesting too. Saudi Arabia doesn't permit women's wrestling, so tonite is their time to shine

    Fake wrestling is not a sport.

    Wrestling is diverse though. You can be from one ethnic/cultural group and play a character from another ethnic/cultural group.

    That's what they say. I was told that Gorilla Monsoon, the Manchurian giant, wasn't from Manchuria at all.

    Lynch won, Sane couldn't get in position to deliver the Insane Elbow.

    But the most interesting part of the evening was that Sane's tag team partner, Asuka, blew Asian Mist in the face of their own manager , Paige before the match started. Asian Mist is a tactic used since the 70's by some Japanese wrestlers, the Great Kabuki was the first to use it, it really seems questionable to me.
