Welcome to the links list for this week, where I give you the best writing on wrestling and other things from the last seven days for you to savor. SAVOR. This week's slate is chock full of goodies, so without further ado...

Hey, Rip Rogers opened his big dumb mouth again, this time yammering about how indie matches all have the same formula. I wrote a rebuttal. [The Wrestling Blog]

Hey, did you stay up or get up early to watch Best of the Super Juniors? Get the scoop on the rest of the tourney plus some words about Kenny Omega vs. Tomohiro Ishii from Elliot! [The Wrestling Blog]

Who's the only man who can stop The Rock from becoming the next President of the United States? Marc Normandin says it's JOHN CENA, obviously. [Cageside Seats]

I'm not the only person who appreciates Braun Strowman in Leftist Wrestling Twitter. Ian Williams writes about how Strowman, despite his injury, is the best thing WWE has going right now. [VICE Sports Bruiseday]

Hey! Josh Gad, whose voice you know from Disney's megahit Frozen, is writing a movie about legendary pro wrestling heel Gorgeous George, and he has an update about it. [With Spandex]

Christopher Daniels sat down for a Q and A sesh about War of the Worlds and so much more. [Wrestledelphia]

A primer on how knowing these insider terms and how they're used can help change one's perception about pro wrestling completely. [Cracked]

Izzac lays out five wrestlers who will end up being the standardbearers for puroresu going into the next generation. [Wrestling with Words]

NON-WRESTLING #1: Whenever Michael Tunison lays into Peter King, it's a must read. This piece deals with King's useful idiocy pertaining to the NFL's transparent blackballing of Colin Kaepernick. [Yardbarker]

NON-WRESTLING #2: Jetta Rae has found an unlikely anarchist ally in... Guy Fieri? Read about how Flavortown embodies the leftist ethos. [Fry Havoc]

Also, if you're considering giving money to The Wrestling Blog, I advise otherwise as I do this out of love/as a hobby/not for my primary source of income. However, I will ask that you support some other great people who DO write/produce content to get by. This week's honor roll:

Butch Rosser (TWB/Championship Vinyl)
Trevor Strunk (No Cartridge/Video Drone)
Jetta Rae (Fry Havoc)
