1. Republican Debate - Sure, I would like to see these debates in another format. However, all in all, I thought this week's Republican Debate was a success. At the very least it was entertaining, but really, I think it gave a platform for the candidates to battle it out and separate themselves - for better or worse.
2. RSV Vaccine - Offering a vaccine for expectant women and new babies from suffering from RSV. -easy win, right?
3. Pro Wrestling - Pro Wrestling is on fire right now, and this weekend produced an insane amount of hours of television and events between multiple companies. An emotional weekend in many ways.
3a. Terry Funk and Bray Wyatt - Pro Wrestling lost some good individuals this week. We said goodbye to legend and hall of famer, Terry Funk, and endured the sudden passing of one of the most creative minds the business has ever seen, in Windham Rotundo, known as Bray Wyatt.
3c - AEW All In - Finally, AEW set a new record for the highest attendance for a paying crowd at 81,035 fans in Wembley Stadium in London, England.
Again, a tremendous week for pro wrestling.
1. Trump Indictment - I'm not sure I've fully wrapped my mind around the idea that a former President is enduring things we've never seen before, like being indicted. Then again, it is President Trump. What's crazy is how this has fueled interest in him as a candidate, and how some are willing to look past these charges and yet still in favor of "law and order".
Make it make sense.
1a. Trump Mug Shot - You absolutely knew his mug shot would be a cultural catalyst for his fan base. And yup, it is.
2. Jacksonville Shooting - This story is incredibly sad on so many levels. I think about the victims and their families and what they must endure tonight because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time - and yes, bore the wrong skin color. And then there is the suspect who released a manifesto prior to the attack. We're in a crazy place in America.
3. Rudy Guliani - The former Mayor gets the "down" this week as it's fascinating how he went from "America's Mayor" and Time Person of the Year to well...what he has become.
Republican presidential candidate Florida Governor Ron DeSantis gets his makeup touched up during a commercial break at the first Republican candidates' debate of the 2024 U.S. presidential campaign in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on August 23.
