Okay, I wanted to like Renee Young on commentary (I don't watch Raw, so she may be fantastic there) but she needs to learn what the big words mean before she uses them.

"at this conjecture"
"trained under the guise of"

It's like watching The Sopranos. Unless this is her gimmick, because I never noticed it before, then I'm fine with it.

I've never really noticed that from Renee.  Unless there are a lot of other examples you can cite, I'm going to chalk this up to her being a little nervous and trying to get her stuff in without thinking it through (which is what she's struggling the most with in these horrible 3-man booths).  She's always come across as well-spoken to me.  Compared to Booker T., she's a Rhodes Scholar.

PWInsider reporting that Mia Yim is now under WWE contract and is training at the PC.

So far it's been better looking women, worse commentary.
Actually, I'll walk back the second part - Cole has been far better than Ross last year.  Lita at her best last year was better than Phoenix and Young have been so far by a hair.  
I know they'd never do it (gotta ensure smiles go on faces) but I wanna see a honest to goodness heel win one of these tournaments one year.  Take the trophy, call out whomever's holding a belt and go right to town on them.

I could make a drinking game out of "Girl hits her finisher then shows a big look of shock when the other girl kicks out at 2" 14 of the 16 first round matches had that spot. Just once in this tournament I'd like to see someone go right back on the offense after someone kicks out of their big move. I'd also like to see a sore loser or 2 in these things and attack the winner after a match.

Better action now that most of the scrubs were taken out in round 1.

Well we'd better hope she majored in Cody and not Dusty because if it's the latter we will never see her improve on her vocabulary.  Unless of course she drops a "clubberin" in which case she would pop me.

Renee as a female Dusty would be perversely entertaining. They'd have to bring back the claw though when they do instant replays.

She apparently hurt her knee or leg and the ref flashed the "X" and trainers came out to look at it. She begged them to let her continue and actually talked them into re-starting the match. But after a minute or two she couldn't go on and the ref stopped it. Curious that they never went for an improvised finish even after the re-start.  It will be interesting to see how/if they edit that together for TV. I'm not sure if she was supposed to win the match or not, but I can imagine her frustration getting hurt during her big opportunity. She was supposedly very upset.
The Tegan Nox match finally aired last night.  The injury came on the very first move of the match.  She definitely has balls.  I can't believe she convinced the trainer to let the match continue when she could barely stand.  I guess they care more about head injuries than leg injuries, but in 2018 I never thought that would still happen.  They went another couple of minutes and then Nox actually ran the ropes and got nailed with a dropkick and that's when she started screaming in pain and threw up the X herself.  They showed all of it unedited and it was some powerful TV. 

Rhea Ripley was phenomenal in keeping her cool and continuing to sneer at Nox through all this.  Some great facial expression to show that she didn't give a shit if someone was hurt, she was just glad to advance.  She really did a great job in making sure the whole match didn't fall apart.  I think they said she was 21 and she did a better job than a lot of veterans in keeping it together and never breaking character.

Just watched the semi finals and so far the one who has impressed me most was Meiko Satomura, whom I've never really seen before. I really hope the WWE signs her, she impressed the hell out of me in her matches

Certainly I should win something for predicting the finals.  The odds of me getting this right were pretty slim.
