Well, this is frustrating. I really, REALLY thought I was gonna have this page finished and loaded before midnight last night. I already had everything inked and scanned a day ahead of time, and I was already starting to color the thin in as early as 8. A done deal, right? Well, that whole "human need to sleep" kicked in, and if you've been keeping track of my various delays over the course of the past year, you know a LOT of them are because I don't really have any middle ground between "wide awake" and "already unconscious" anymore. Once I start getting groggy, I'm just OUT. That, plus some unexpected layout problems that I really shouldn't have been trying to fix while only half-awake, torpedoed any chance of this page getting done ahead of time. Oh well.

Anyway, this is my little "tribute" to all the weird gimmick matches where winning involves pretty much anything other than "pin the other guy" or "throw the other guy over the top rope." Not a huge fan, in case you couldn't tell. And we've got some more new character designs for me to ramble on about, too! Rumiko's basically a shout out to the Red Rooster, the TERRIBLE gimmick that Terry Taylor was saddled with during his initial run in WWF. I'm not making up that faux-hawk, kiddies. That was an actual thing. As for Vashti, she's Shinsuke Nakamura. Hey, if they character's already a rock star, why not dress her up as a wrestler who's basically a rock star himself? Granted, I could have had her be a Honky Tonk Man reference for the same reason, and actually that might have been a little bit funnier. But these references have leaned VERY heavily towards the 80s/90s side of things, and I wanted to squeeze in SOMETHING a bit more current.

Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge that, after two plus weeks of trying to think up stupid Christmas-themed wrestling jokes, Real Life just went and outdid all of it. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Macaulay Culkin using "Home Alone Tactics" to interfere in a wrestling match.

Are those angles all right? They look rather acute.

...I SHOULD be thinking about how to re-do the text in that panel without screwing up the background... but all I can do is imagine a photoshoped version version where the angels are replaced with multiple pictures of Kurt Angle.
