2023.02.03 04:48 Edge-The-Fiend A Week-By-Week Analysis on How I Would Book AJ Lee If She Never Retired, Part One: Assistant AJ

Raw, April 13, 2015: AJ Lee is at the commentary desk for the Divas Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal, which was won by Paige. However, Naomi, who was the last person Paige eliminated, attacks her. This leads to AJ helping Paige, fighting her off.
Raw, April 20, 2015: Stephanie McMahon makes an announcement that she wants to make a full commitment to WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. With the continued chaos throughout the weeks between Paige, Naomi, AJ Lee, The Bella Twins, Natalya, Alicia Fox, and Cameron, she would need to look for an assistant to the Chief Brand Officer of WWE. Throughout this episode of Raw, as well as this week’s SmackDown, people like Rosa Mendes, Lana, and even Layla tell Stephanie that they would be perfectly qualified for the job. Later in the night, Naomi defeats AJ Lee before The Bella Twins attack the both of them. At Extreme Rules, Nikki Bella will defend the Divas Championship against Naomi because Paige is unable to compete.
Raw, April 27, 2015: After Naomi is unable to beat Nikki for the title at Extreme Rules, she is successful in defeating her sister Brie. Stephanie McMahon comes out to introduce the official ‘Assistant to the Chief Brand Officer’, AJ Lee! AJ skips down to the ring to Naomi. She tells her that if she wants another shot at Nikki Bella, she has to defeat both of The Bella Twins in a Handicap Match on SmackDown. That is her first order of business in this position.
SmackDown, April 30, 2015: Twin Magic helps Brie pin Naomi while Nikki is the legal woman. Naomi calls bullshit, but AJ will allow it. It’s clear by this point that AJ is using The Authority Abuse of Power card on Naomi whenever she can.
Raw, May 4, 2015: Naomi takes the mic to display her displeasure of AJ’s corporate bullshit. The Assistant arrives to make this match for Payback: The Bella Twins vs Naomi and a partner of her choosing.
Raw, May 11, 2015: With a distraction by Naomi, Tamina defeats Brie Bella. Nikki goes face to face with Naomi, but Tamina sneak attacks her. When AJ comes to break the fight up, Naomi announces that AJ’s former bodyguard is her partner for Payback. This leaves AJ confused, flummoxed, perplexed, and dumbfounded that her former partner is aiding the enemy.
Payback 2015: Assistant AJ is on commentary for the tag team match between Naomi and Tamina and The Bella Twins. The ending is this: Naomi tackles Brie out of the ring, allowing Tamina and Nikki to be alone. When Nikki begs for mercy, Tamina headbutts her before hitting a Superfly Splash for the win. AJ Lee comes to the ring to shake Tamina and Naomi’s hand. She hesitates for Naomi, but still extends her hand. Naomi smiles and walks away. Later on, AJ is in The Authority’s area with Stephanie. The McMahon daughter lets her know that after every Divas PPV match, the winner or winners must shake AJ Lee’s hand. Because of Naomi’s unsportsmanlike act, as well as Tamina pinning the Divas Champion, it will be Nikki Bella vs Tamina for the title tomorrow night on Raw.
Raw, May 18, 2015: Backstage, AJ Lee walks up to Naomi and Tamina and tells them what Stephanie told her last night. She also adds the rule that if Naomi interferes in the match, then Nikki retains. If Brie interferes, then Tamina will win the championship. In the match, Tamina is just dominating NB. After a headbutt and two superkicks, Tamina climbs the top rope. The crowd stands up in anticipation as the Snuka daughter prepares for her big moment! Cue a damn fox! Alicia Fox climbs up the ring apron and stares Tamina down. Tamina’s confused, but still jumps for the Superfly Splash that put Nikki away last night… SPLAT! Nikki just moves out the way, still dazed, but it buys her some time to collect herself. She picks Tamina up and hits the Rack Attack for the three count. AJ Lee races down the ring to restart the match, but Stephanie tells her that technically neither Brie or Naomi interfered in the match, so the win is sanctioned.
Raw, May 25, 2015: Stephanie is walking down the corridor when AJ comes up to her. AJ tells her that she’s been thinking for the past seven days about how the WWE can #GiveDivasAChance. She whispers in Stephanie’s ear and McMahon smiles and immediately points and gives a clear ‘YES’. We don’t hear what AJ said until she comes down to the ring to make the announcement. “For the past few months, the WWE Universe have been blowing up Twitter with the hashtag #GiveDivasAChance. And as Assistant to the Chief Brand Officer, it is my duty to inform you all here tonight, that I’ve heard you. I’ve seen the tweets, the signs every single week, everything that you have done, I have acknowledged you! And after the debacle that happened last week here on Raw, I believe that it’s about time that the divas get the same opportunity as the male superstars. Which brings me to my point. As many of you know, there is a pay-per-view coming up called Money in the Bank.” She slows down those last 24 words to build up excitement. Once she said ‘Money in the Bank’, the crowd knew what the deal was. “There is also a specific match entitled ‘the Money in the Bank Ladder Match’.” Absolute pop. “The only issue with that is that it’s only available to men. Not anymore. I spoke with Stephanie McMahon and the match is official! Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for the inaugural Divas Money in the Bank Ladder Match!” The crowd gives a standing ovation for Assistant AJ. The qualifying matches start this week on SmackDown.
SmackDown, May 28, 2015: The schedule is set for the qualifying matches: tonight will feature Tamina vs Alicia Fox. The next Raw will have Cameron vs Naomi and Brie Bella vs Natalya. Abuse of power gives Paige the first spot in the match. AJ will be on commentary for all of the matches. For tonight, Tamina. Whoops. Alicia’s. Butt. As revenge, Tamina dominates her to qualify for the match.
Raw, June 1, 2015: For the next two qualifying matches, Naomi and Brie Bella win, making the current lineup Paige, Tamina, Naomi, and Brie Bella. That’s too little for a MITB match, isn’t it? As a solution, AJ has created another slot because she’s found a fifth person… “Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the fifth diva!” AJ says as she points to the titantron. Her music plays and she takes off her business jacket and heels to reveal her wrestling shirt! Smirking, the Assistant is now part of the lineup. The sixth diva will be determined in a battle royal on NXT.
NXT, June 3, 2015: The battle royal is won by the newly-turned heel Alexa Bliss. AJ Lee extends her hand, but Alexa walks off. Not taking this disrespect from a rookie, Lee stops her in her tracks, demanding a handshake. Bliss slowly shakes her hand and walks off.
Raw, June 8, 2015: The six competitors sit down at Miz TV to tell the world why they will win the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. This historic contest will put every single diva in the history books, but especially the winner. This will be AJ’s first match since becoming the Assistant to the Chief Brand Officer. Stephanie will surely be watching.
Money in the Bank 2015: It is now time to make history! Naomi vs Brie Bella vs Tamina vs Alexa Bliss vs Paige vs AJ Lee is officially on! I will now give every diva a beneficial spot.
  1. Brie Bella is about to get powerbombed by Tamina from an outside ladder to the announce table, but is able to get out of her grasp after she picks her up. She then tosses Tamina behind her back, leading to Tamina falling through the table.
  2. Paige is able to fight off Naomi in the middle of the ring. She grabs a ladder and dumps it on her. She grabs Naomi’s arms through that ladder and puts her in a PTO while the only thing between them is that ladder! Great pain is given to naomi!
  3. After a while Paige, Brie Bella, and AJ Lee are fighting on the outside of the ring where the ramp is. It gives enough time for rookie Alexa Bliss to hit the Twisted Bliss off a ladder onto the three.
  4. Naomi tries to grab the briefcase, which is extra work thanks to the PTO. Paige catches up to her and attempts to push her down. Naomi, however, highkicks her in the face and gets her off the ladder. Paige pushes the ladder down, but Naomi grabs on to the cable holding the briefcase. After a minute, Naomi is able to drop down into a hurricanrana to Paige.
  5. Being an Assistant comes with perks, and AJ used it before the doors even opened. While the crew were setting up the ring, AJ put a pair of handcuffs under it. In the match, she gets it and handcuffs Naomi to a ring post so she couldn’t move.
  6. Just after this spot happens, AJ is met with a superkick from Tamina. She leans the ladder on the ropes and lays AJ down on it. She climbs to the top rope and hits a Superfly Splash on the Assistant.
With all the damage done, the ones left standing in the last few minutes are Tamina, Brie Bella, and Alexa Bliss. They all climb the same ladder to grab the briefcase. Tamina has a plan: suplex both Brie and Alexa off the ladder and then win the match. This backfires, however, as Tamina only suplexes Alexa off the ladder. Brie was able to keep hold of it and grab the Money in the Bank Contract! Brie Bella has made history tonight!
Raw, June 15, 2015: The Bella Twins and Alicia Fox come out, now using the name ‘Team Bella’. Nikki tells the WWE Universe that she is proud of her sister for winning the first ever female Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Brie says that she was the absolute best scenario for winning, because she’s never cashing in that briefcase! The only way that she will cash in is if Nikki loses the Divas Championship. To the three, there’s no point in cashing in. Nikki officially starts The BellaTron (the amount of days she has left to break the record for longest reigning champion). She is at 204 days, meaning there are 92 days left. This prompts AJ Lee to make sure that Nikki doesn’t break HER record. She puts Nikki in a match against Tamina for the title tonight. If anybody interferes on Nikki’s behalf, Tamina will win the title. Nikki Bella then successfully retains the championship without any help.

2023.02.03 02:43 Tough_Independent107 First experience with dating, as an asexual (Middle School)

Hi guys, long-time lurker first-time poster. I found this subreddit about two years ago, and it has been quite the ride since then. The stories I found here helped me understand myself, and I wanted to add one of my own.
I (M24) got my first “Girlfriend” in the 7th grade. “Zoe” had moved from across the country, and had just started at my school. I don’t think I noticed her until she approached me. One day she came up to me and just asked me out. She said I seemed nice and that she was looking for a boyfriend. I said that I wasn’t interested and she should find someone else. She told me that the other boys she had tried to date were too aggressive. One of them tried to grab her ass on the first date. I remained firm that I had no interest in dating.
I had never been attracted to women, and I had no interest in sex. It bothered me that my friends felt the exact opposite, but it was what it was. I just brushed off their jokes, and probing questions.
A firm denial didn’t stop her advances. She took every opportunity to convince me to try dating.
“Have you ever had a girlfriend”
“No”
“How do you know you won’t like it”
“I just don’t want to”
“Just try it”
We had that exchange about 15 times before she changed tactics. She began rubbing my arms, and assuring me that it would be fun. That I had to try it at least once. I didn’t have the confidence or self-awareness to set boundaries. To be honest I was in no position to turn down people who wanted to spend time with me anyway. So to get her to stop I agreed.
I have always been attracted to the idea of a partnership. A companion for life, who you can be there for, and they for you. I love songs that skip over the sex stuff and get right to that aspect of a relationship. So I thought I could just get the parts I wanted with ‘Zoe”.
She started calling me every day after school. I didn’t mind, I had been previously filling that time slot with video games anyways. The problem came when the conversation shifted to taking the “next step”. She wanted to start kissing and hugging more frequently. It became 70% of our conversions. I tried talking about some offputting subject matter to scare her off. (Death, lack of afterlife, war, E.T.C.) Those topics made her uncomfortable, but she kept calling me.
We talked so much that my parents bought me a landline.
I remember talking to some girls from drama class about the relationship.
“How is it going with ‘Zoe”
“It’s alright, she wants to do stuff I don’t want to do though.”
“Like what”
“Kiss and stuff”
‘If you don’t want to do that stuff, then why are you dating?”
“I like the idea of a relationship”
“Whoa I didn’t think you were that kind of guy” (Shallow)
They thought I liked the prestige of “being in a relationship”. I didn’t understand how to explain, or even how to put into words what I wanted.
I remember inviting “Zoe” to my house twice. The first time we sat at my desk and played cards, and connect four. Then I shared my favorite song with her, then she shared hers. She played “Lucky” by Jason Mraz. I have never felt more uncomfortable than listening to this song with her sitting across from me. She was already way too aggressive, and it felt like she was professing her deep love for me. I still can’t listen to the song without feeling deeply uncomfortable.
The second time she came over we were watching the greatest movie of all time, The Game Plan starring Dwayne the Rock Johnson. I remember sitting on top of my bed watching it from my computer. Then we were under the covers, just leaning against each other. I was enjoying just having her lean against me. I wouldn’t call it cuddling, I was just enjoying the company of another person. My mom walked in and shut that down. She said that she wasn’t ok with us being under the covers. I had no idea why that would be an issue. It took me a long time to see that situation from her perspective.
Toward the end of the school year, she started getting really aggressive. She would pass me notes in every class we had together. She was desperate for my attention. Trying to appease her was affecting my grades. I think I got her to tone it down because our relationship lasted until the end of the school year. She had to move back home, and I could not have been happier about that.
As I got older I started thinking about “Zoe”. It was obviously a horrible first relationship for an asexual. I learned that if you don’t want to engage physically then you can’t make a relationship work. I later came to think that she probably had been taught a bad lesson too. I think she learned from those around her that the best friendships are relationships, and the physical side holds those relationships together. I think we were both wrong. That doesn’t have to be the case for either side. It took me a long time to un-learn that lesson, and have this subreddit to thank for that.
If people are interested I can share other stories. I have just been thinking about this one a lot lately.
Thank you,
-Connor

Unopened Boxes
Hey guys,
Been awhile since I've dug into the ole' collection. I was looking through some of it and found these boxes/packs unopened. Wasn't even sure where to check for value or selling, so I'm hoping for some insight. Any help would be appreciated...I've got a ton of cards to go through.
Any ideas on a decent sized Jordan collection? I know the industry has taken a hit, so are most of the cards needing to be PSA graded?

2023.02.03 00:59 Muddy_Dawg5 Every 2 weeks I see a post of some variation of "Help I have extreme performance anxiety." There are real, evidence-based solutions to this problem. I busted out my typewriter and penned this summary of strategies. I will post it on every relevant post.

It brings me pain when I see these stage fright posts because there are solutions available that people just don't know about. There's a smart neuroscientist and musician who has great insight on this problem. I have attempted to summarize his video. Citation at bottom.
Performance anxiety is the fear of screwing up in front of others. This fear has a profound impact on our brain and therefore the rest of our body. Our brain doesn't differentiate between a bear that is trying to eat us and the painful scorn of an audience. We think “oh fuck” and then the fight or flight section of the brain takes over. Both situations are equally life threatening according to our brain, and our brain hijacks the rest of the body until the threat is resolved. When then brain goes into fight or flight mode, it affects the body in plenty of ways: blood is diverted away from a variety of internal organs and goes toward your muscles, your bloodstream is flooded with adrenaline, your heart rate goes up to pump more blood to your muscles, faster breathing, pupils dilate, skin gets clammy, pain perception is blunted, you can get nauseous, and all your attention gets focused on the threat. The threat in this case is other people watching you play. Unfortunately, you signed up for this threat, so you can't solve it with normal fight or flight actions. The only way to resolve this threat is by playing well, but that can't happen when you are in fight or flight mode. I'm no cucumber scientist, but that's a pickle.
Remember, you have to know your piece first. These strategies will not make your magically good if you haven't practiced. But if you notice that you can play well by yourself then struggle when playing for other people, try bossing your brain around with these strategies.
Here are 5 evidence-based actions you can take to solve the problem. All these actions are additive, so they all work to help you and don't detract from each other. Numbers 4 and 5 are my favorites.
1) Dissociation: it's an idea from psychology that talks about the feeling that things aren't happening to you or even that your self no longer exists. Of course this can be bad, but it can also be helpful. If you can turn the focus away from yourself, that helps relieve performance anxiety. Yes you want people to see your skill, but the focus on how your audience perceives you is fundamentally driving the problem of stage fright. Instead, turn the focus to the music rather than yourself. You are playing because this music is beautiful and should be shared. It's not about you anymore. It's about the beautiful phrasing the composer wrote. It's the powerful chords that pierce the soul. It's not about your greatness; it's about the greatness of the music.
2) Desensitization: Humans are pretty cool because we acclimate to things that we experience frequently. Trauma nurses aren't phased by blood anymore because they are around it so much. If we want to get to that level of not caring about something that normally distresses people, we don't want to start with the most extreme cases. We want to start small and work our way up. Instead of blood, we are dealing with feelings of scorn from an audience. Who are the least and the most judgmental of audiences? Stuffed animal, cat, old folks' home (they will all love you always), strangers on the street, friends, family, personal recording, teacher, judges. You know you will have extreme anxiety when playing for your teacher or judges. Perform for more forgiving audiences first. Work your way up to the more intimidating audiences. Recording yourself is a great desensitization practice that can be done privately.
3) Visualization: Research shows that our expectations can impact the results. This is most evident with the placebo effect. When we expect a pill will help us sleep, and even empty pills will get the job done. So imagine your fingers playing nimbly. Imagine your bow having smooth string crossings. Your shifting is smooth and timely. It turns out imagining things can have a positive effect.
4) Imitation: This is 'fake it til you make it.' You may not be the best musician, but you can pretend you are. You can pretend you are Ling Ling. You drink your Ling Ling juice and now you have temporary powers of musical greatness. A cape even appears behind you, but it's invisible to the rest of the world. So go out and be Ling Ling. Nothing can stop Ling Ling. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is naturally shy, but created The Rock persona to help him be a compelling performer. Pretend to be someone you aren't. It's a remarkably effective strategy.
5) Relaxation: Your body has 2 nervous systems: Sympathetic and Parasympathetic. The sympathetic nervous system is active when your fight or flight responses kick in. The parasympathetic nervous system is the 'rest and digest' primary mode. They oppose each other and cannot both be highlighted at the same time. Rapid, shallow breathing brings the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) to the forefront. But the opposite, slow and deep breathing, suppresses the sympathetic nervous system. The fight or flight symptoms can't keep existing in an environment with slow, deep breathing and the parasympathetic nervous system can come back to the forefront. Inhale slowly through your nose to the count of 4. Then exhale to the count of 6. Begin playing at the end of an exhale when you are ready. Trust that you are creating an environment unsuitable for the fight or flight system.
I hope this helps you understand what is going on in your brain and helps you perform in front of others.
This information is from Dr. Josh Turknett, a cognitive and behavioral neuroscientist who is also a musician. He has many videos, and his 5 Ways to Crush Stage Fright video was my source for this information.
Happy playing!
