So to answer the pertinent questions early on in this show:
There has not been a Firefly Fun House since the debut of Wobbly Walrus, so that monstrosity may still be seen again. Or maybe not, given the perceived change in direction for both Reigns and the Fiend.
My overall schedule allows me to catch live New Japan shows, as long as I wake up for them. So I’ve been able to catch most of the G1 Climax live and still watch the weekly U.S. based wrestling shows on TV. There were a couple shows this year (before and during the G1) that started around 1 or 2 AM ET that I tried staying up for but couldn’t, so I had to catch them after the fact. I’ve had a dog for five months now, so if I’m up for a show that starts between 4:00 and 5:30, it will finish at an appropriate time for me to let him out in the morning and feed him. Today’s show starting at 6 AM means it would have ended later than usual, which wouldn’t have been fair to my dog, so I slept in a little, took care of him, and watched the show later in the morning after walking him.
