2023.06.03 09:36 pineapple_juice234 Are they ever genuine?

So, my mom has a lot of traits of covert narcissism and traumatised me and my brother to the point he was diagnosed with BPD and I'm with a depressive disorder. Shit went down about 2/3 years ago and our family fell apart. My brother was often emotionally hostile towards my mom, because of her toxic behavior, and she would then give him the silent treatment, guilt trip him and be hella passive agressive after those emotional outbursts, doesn't matter how many times he apologised or cried his eyes out over it. She left our family to live in a trailer, divorced my dad and me brother went NC with her(I believe she is literally scared of him because he screamed the truth in her face). Ever since she has been "too" nice to me. She buys me presents a lot. She also used to do that right before she left our family. She would buy me something and have this sneaky grin on her face while saying "Your mum sure is good for you, huh?". It gave me serious icks. She and I used to fight a lot and she always pulled the victim card. Whenever I did something she didn't like she made sure of it that I felt her resentment towards me. Always complaining, looking angry at me, being super passive agressive, refusing help to later just complain about us and how we make her life miserable. But over the past 2 years since she left, she has been acting like this innocent mother being super sweet to her daughter. Texting me multiple times a day (I live with my dad), buying me stuff at least once a month, complimenting me and saying how great I am and whatnot. I don't know whether this is genuine or that she just needs me as this validation object for her role as "good mother". Or does she want me to realise she is better than my dad so I will decide to live with her(I'm 19)? Maybe some of you see similarities in your own story and can maybe give me some insight on her behavior. Thanks a lot for reading :)

2023.06.03 09:36 Shimii_GER Always i try to enter my first map, i get teleportet to another

Hi guys, im new, and im trying my best to make a nice game.
Im have an issue where my player cant use doors witch lead to my starting zone, because he get not portet where he used to be.
Instead he get always portet on a different spot. Its always the same map/location he get portet.
It doesnt matter if i use another door, or if i make new door events.
The funny thing is: This happens ,@ all my doors and its always the first door after starting debug menu and play my game.

Do anyone know how to fix this?
If you can describe it step by step for a noob like me would be great.
I spend already several days on my game and this issue steals all my motivation.

EDIT: Its effect just outdoor-doors. And even if im start debugmenu with a startpoint on a outsidemap i get portet to the spot i told you before.

2023.06.03 09:34 Competitive_Text1914 Hells Kitchen 6th Place Season: Episode 7

Chef Gordon Ramsay welcomed back his 12 remaining Chefs and said he wanted them all to forget about last nights train wreck of a service as much as he had as it was a disaster. Sabrina was ecstatic to survive last night and said it was time to prove everyone wrong that she didn’t belong here and Van said he needed to get out of Hells Kitchen after being stuck here since the 1st challenge. Chef Ramsay announced that the next challenge would be the pasta challenge where each Chef would create a pasta dish from each team and be marked out of 5 by Ramsay and a guest judge. Giovanni said as an Italian he had to bring it home for the blue team and Nikki said she had been the challenge queen so far and was optimistic for a great challenge today. First up was Giovanni and Elizabeth and Giovanni’s dish was a strong effort scoring 8/10 but Elizabeth’s over complicated dish only scored 4/10 and Elizabeth was furious with herself for over complicating a pasta dish. The blue teams strong start continued with Ed scoring 9 but Van scored a perfect TEN to keep the red team in the competition and Van said killing it in challenges had to see him rewarded eventually. Tara served overcooked pasta to only score 4 and Nikki’s solid score of 7 levelled the scores up at 21 a piece with 3 dishes left. The blue team retook the lead when Sabrina scored 7/10 and Sabrina said she had proven herself yet again and Kashia only scoring 3 saw the red blue team take the lead again. Antonio continued the blue teams momentum with a score of 8 and despite Dannie beating him with 9, the blue team led by 3 going into the last dishes. Kanae though served a very bland dish and only scored 3 and Santos scored 8 to secure a win for the red team! Santos was ecstatic to win the challenge for the red team and Kanae said she was going to have to forget about this whole day. Ramsay congratulated the red team but when he asked if Ed wanted to use his punishment pass, Ed chose to use it and picked Van to take the punishment instead of him which infuriated Van as he had been stuck in Hell Kitchen for over a week. Ed said he’d done it as he viewed Van as his biggest competition and wanted to test him by making him do another punishment.
Ed returned and was pumped for the blue team to finally win a dinner service and told Antonio that they were going to have a perfect night on the meat station. Tara and Kanae on appetisers got off to a strong start initially with Tara’s risottos accepted by Ramsay but Kanae served a bland capellini but quickly fought back to complete the ticket. Giovanni did get off to a good start on the fish station but halfway through appetisers he started to fall behind Tara and Kanae and served a raw lobster tail and Kanae was worried about the oldest Chef running the fish station solo. Giovanni then served scallops badly seared and Ramsay asked Giovanni if his age was catching up to him and Giovanni said no and fought back, saying the old guy could still burn in the kitchen. Appetisers finished strongly and Sabrina on the garnish station said she was going to be calling out the tickets and counting down every 10 seconds to make sure Ramsay hears her as the leader of the team after the disaster of last service. Despite Sabrina annoying Ed by over communicating, Ed served perfect lamb while Antonio served perfect wellingtons to get the blue team off to a great start on entrees. Giovanni was determined to have a better time on entrees after struggling with appetisers and he fought back serving perfect salmon and turbot as the blue team were getting close to finishing their best service yet. Sabrina ended up working well with Antonio, Ed and Giovanni and as the final tickets of seabass, chicken and wellingtons flew out, Ramsay praised the performance of the blue team and said that Antonio and Ed had a perfect night on the meat station as well as praising Giovanni for his fightback with Sabrina feeling short changed on the credit having had a great service herself.
The red team wanted a strong start as well and Nikki on appetisers with Elizabeth said she had to prove that her last service was a fluke and she got off to a great start with carbonaras and Elizabeth’s capellinis came out perfect as well, and both of them worked well together on appetisers to get the first half off to a strong start. Van said he was determined after having issues on the fish station before on Hells Kitchen but his cooking of scallops was praised by Ramsay as Van, Elizabeth and Nikki finished appetisers in great time and Ramsay said this was the best start yet and for the red team to keep it up. Kashia said the key to having a great service on garnish was not getting flustrated and despite Dannie and Santos on meat being confused what Kashia was calling out early on, she slowed down as the first entrees flew out as Van continued to have a great service, serving perfect seabass while Santos first steaks flew out. The meat station did start to struggle halfway through entrees as Dannie dragged on an order of 2 chicken and got annoyed by Kashia saying she needed her to bring it up with Dannie saying she’d rather take an extra 2 minutes than serve raw chicken. Santos said it was time to lead the station but Santos got behind with Van continuing to have a great service and Santos ended up serving a raw steak and Ramsay said he was the weak link so far which annoyed Santos as he felt he was the strongest in the kitchen. Santos then dragged on an order of 2 veal because he was worried about serving raw veal and then had to get Elizabeth to help him bring his wellingtons to the pass but Ramsay was happy he took the extra minutes and the rest of the entrees came out with Ramsay saying it was their best service yet, praising the performance of Van as his best yet in Hells Kitchen.
Ramsay was delighted with the performances of both teams and said he couldn’t name a losing team but said the process must continue and for each team to name 2 chefs for elimination. Despite Sabrina claiming she had the best service, Kanae felt they had to go overall and said Sabrina would be her 1st nominee and Tara her 2nd which Sabrina refuted and said that Kanae and Giovanni should go up for making mistakes in service and that her improvement meant she shouldn’t go up which Kanae angrily said she had made 1 mistake the whole time where as Sabrina had made several. Tara agreed with Sabrina but felt that Giovanni should go up due to his problems early on and Antonio agreed that Giovanni was behind everyone else. Giovanni accepted his nomination and said that hopefully Ramsay would realise he still had the fire of a younger Chef and Ed told Giovanni he thought Sabrina was going anyway so he should be fine. Santos quickly decided for the red team that Kashia and Dannie were the weakest chefs overall but Kashia said that had Dannie and Santos not struggled on the meat station, they would have won service outright. Nikki did agree that Santos should go up for having the worst service overall and this was agreed by Van who said that Santos should be able to hold down a meat station with another person on it. Santos was livid at being nominated and said that the other services and challenges clearly counted for nothing if he was going up. Ramsay agreed with the 4 nominees but after hearing from all 4 he said no one was going home to due to the best service yet but warned the Chefs that he wouldn’t be so generous next time. Tara felt Sabrina should have gone and was annoyed to be working with her again tomorrow and Dannie felt she was on borrowed time as the team were going to nominate her no matter how well she did.
As they got the 6 most votes to eliminate, the 6 Chefs doing Cook for your Life will be Dannie, Sabrina, Kashia, Santos, Giovanni and Antonio with 1 of them going on the next poll.

2023.06.03 09:34 Time_Lawfulness_2618 Is my chin botched

After having chin fillers for two years, I wanted to have the chin implant I so long waited for to add permanent projection to my profile and to get rid of the fat pad under my chin, but now, 3 weeks in, I totally regret it.
There's two major thing that concern me.
  1. I really think my chin implant is misplaced. I feel my implant way lower on my right side and from the side it is also bigger. During the surgery it also felt wrong on that side since it hurt me and the surgeon had to inject me again to numb the area. Despite feeling part of the implant under my jaw bone (the other side is fine) my surgeon gaslighted me saying everything was fine and pratically said I was delulu about the expected results.
  2. I feel like my chin implant is quite big for my face. I think it's too long and maybe too large. I really want some opinion other than mine and my surgeon !!!
Am I being delusional? I feel like I look like rumpelstiltskin from shrek 😫
Before pictures are me with fillers. I'll try sharing more pictures.

2023.06.03 09:34 Fair_Push_2780 Coming to terms with the fact that my experience actually was COCSA

tws for sexual abuse obviously
Anyways, my entire life I have brushed off what happened to me as a 'toxic friendship' or just 'me being a pushover'. But the truth is that I was manipulated and assaulted by my only friend growing up for several years. The biggest reasons why it's really hard for me to accept that it's not my fault is because she was a year younger than me and I never outright refused.
When I was a child I was very shy and withdrawn. I always had very few friends, especially during my younger elementary years. When I was 8 years old I rode the schoolbus and we had assigned seats. Halfway through the year the bus driver switched up our seats and I ended up next to a girl in the grade below me who we'll call M. For context, I'm also a girl. She was extroverted, kind, and the only person who had succeeded in getting me out of my shell. We had the same bus stop, so we lived close to eachother, and became fast friends. That first year was fine from what I remembered. Most of my freetime was spent riding my bike to her house and spending time there, or biking together to the creek. One thing though that I'll always regret is that I lied about her being my cousin to my classmates and teacher. Sometimes she'd follow me to class but I was embarrassed about my only friend being younger than me, so I said she was my cousin. I promise this detail is relevant later.
Looking back she was definitely groomed / abused by someone else either irl or online. M was a very normal friend until about a year after we met. She started acting off. More childish (like, toddler level tantrums if things didn't go her way) and more secretive. I don't really remember how it started, but at some point she started showing me porn. She said she really liked watching it and wanted me to see too. I didn't really like it, but at the time I genuinely didn't see the harm in it. Thing's escalated into her touching herself while watching it near me which I really didn't like and would protest against, but she'd have a fit over it and threatened that she'd tell her mom I was the one showing her those videos.
I don't know when exactly she started touching me. I do remember that she told me 'having sex will increase your lifespan by ten years everytime you do it' and that she wanted us to 'be immortal together'. I was extremely sheltered and impressionable, so at nine years old I believed her.
When we got a little older I entered middle school a year before her and had a really great year. I made a close friend that wasn't M who was actually good for me. M hated this and was extremely jealous and upset that she'd been left behind in elementary. I tried to make my two friends get along because I wanted us all to be happy together, but instead M caused a huge rift between us all. She said that if I didn't stop being friends with the new girl she'd tell everyone about what we do together.
So I cut the new friend off. Things got really bad when M entered middle school with me, 12-14 were some of the worst years of my life. M had always bragged about using Omegle and talking to guys on Kik, but I always shut down the idea. In middle school I was having a hard time at home (financial troubles, druggie parents). So I was rather affection starved, and when M started trying to persuade me to go on Omegle with her I finally gave in.
I don't want to go into details about this part for obvious reasons. We'd go on Omegle together and seek out pedophiles (we were very young and looked it), shoddily lie about being '18' (they knew), and then do whatever these freaks wanted on cam. M was willing to do anything, but most stuff made me uncomfortable. This was when M started threatening more serious stuff. Like that she'd stop being my friend, or show everyone nudes she'd forced me to take, or even off herself if I didn't do the things she wanted. It was mostly just stripping, but sometimes they wanted us to do stuff with eachother which was the absolute worst.
My breaking point was when these men were no longer anonymous, and instead M was encouraging them to give us their Kik. That started a horrible year of everything being an unspoken competition of who could be more well-liked by the pedos we were appeasing. M stopped doing sexual things with me at this point other than for the pleasure of these men. The attention I recieved simultaneously was fulfilling and made me feel sickeningly disgusting and guilty. M became genuinely insufferable in the way she was always trying to make herself seem cuter, dedicating all her time to chatting with and sending pics to these men, and always emphasizing that she was younger than me. I was 14 when I found out I'd be moving several counties away. At the time M was my only friend, so I decided I just wouldn't tell anybody about the move and never have to deal with her again. So that's exactly what I did. I moved away and ignored all her dms and desperate attempts to find out what happened to me (like messaging my mom on facebook over and over.)
For a long time I lived in a constant state of paranoia that she'd leak innapropriate pictures / videos of me as revenge, or that she'd come forward with this story but twist it around to blame me. Now, here is the cousin part coming back around; All that time growing up a big part of why I told nobody is because it would mean admitting I lied about us being cousins, and I thought if people knew I lied about that they'd think I was untrustworthy and not believe my story.
This has effected me in many, many ways to this day. I'm bisexual but cannot fathom being in a sexual relationship with a woman. I have desires to be a streamer, but I've never gone after them because I'm terrified that CP of me is out there and somehow someone will recognize my face and link it to me now. I feel immense guilt around sex, pleasure, and porn. The mere mention of Omegle and Kik makes me very nervous, especially in the context of "LOL everyone in gen z was groomed on Kik as a kid xD." I've never tried to figure out where she is now, I don't care. I hope she got the help she needed to become a better person but I don't wanna hear about it. I've never told anyone this, ever. My friends vaguely know that some stuff happened to me online as a kid, but they have no idea about M. I feel an immense amount of shame around this that it was all caused by me being a timid pushover as a kid. Anyways. . . . 5 billion words of trauma dumping later, I'm going to post this and then go to sleep to ignore my anxious nausea.

2023.06.03 09:32 Ganbare_Goemon Am I just a big dumb idiot when it comes to Candy Crush?

Never played candy crush saga before but have a soft spot for simple match 3 games, had an absolute blast with the first 150 levels or so, a few tough levels here and there but nothing extreme, but now it seems like the difficulty has completely skyrocketed, I'm getting stuck on level after level for days, even when using some of the free items they occasionally give you, am I just terrible at the game or is this difficulty spike intentional?

2023.06.03 09:31 edwardmetalwing My ex-best friend (25F) does not want to hang out with me (28M) anymore but are still accepting expensive gifts

My ex-best friend does not want to hang with me anymore but are still accepting expensive gifts
So I'm just confused really and it kinda hurts. I had a bit of a crisis sometime ago which resulted in a significant fallout. That fallout caused my then best friend not wanting to be my best friend anymore. Subsequently they have been significantly nasty towards me after my crisis. I tried reviving the relationship but they have but very consistent with their response that they don't want me in their life anymore. It was hard to accept at first but at this point I am over it. A few months before I told them that I was going to get them a very expensive gift for their birthday. As I promised them earlier and to show that I was honest in my wishes to revive our friendship I still got that very expensive item for them (right now I have basically no money as a result). They have subsequently accepted the gift but still it's the same really. Their responses are still filled with anger. I honestly just don't get it. It kinda stings to spend that much cash on a person who I'm not gonna maybe talk with ever again but I'll be fine. What I don't get is why would they accept something even if it's valuable from someone they don't like anymore? I put a lot of effort into that and they didn't even say a thank you so it hurts.

2023.06.03 09:31 PsychologicalFee6606 Diarrhea for 36h

Hi everyone. We are struggling with severe diarrhea for almost 3 days. It is all fluid and explosive. He has been on an off diarrhea for a long time almost every time he eats something else than dry food but never been like this. Dewormed 2 weeks ago and chemically castrated 4 days ago with Deslorelin. He is allergic to chicken, and before diarrhea he stole chicken from neighbors and 3 days after the stealing this started. I told my vet this and asked if she can run poop and blood tests but she recommended Canikur tablets and said wait for a day or two it should resolve. It didn’t resolve a single bit and know I can not reach to my vet because it is not weekday and emergency service is sayin they are full and not available they are booking us to Tuesday! I am going to loose my mind.
We are going out every 3-4h. He is having an explosive fluid stool coming out 2-3 times, trying to squeeze his butt. Other than that he is eating less (can’t give him bland diet or anything else because he is refusing) but drinking water normal. He is normal outside sniffing around, but at home I think he is a bit more less active. I just need some advices until Monday. It is killing me that he suffers and vet just said wait and ignored my demand.

2023.06.03 09:30 amnotroboto I'd like to be realistic for a sec

I'm banking exclusively on meds to fix me.
So far I've had pretty disappointing results, however (luckily) buspirone has helped my severe anxiety quite a bit. ADHD is hard to pin down if it's being helped, and depression/anhedonia hasn't gotten even slightly better through I think 6 different meds now, over the course of ~7 years of trying to get better. No idea what else, if anything, is wrong with me, I'd have to be able to actually tell what I'm thinking/feeling for that.
I tried therapy a number of times, online, in person, at inpatient after a suicide attempt, but it's never going to work for me. All of my problems are caused by my chemically broken brain and real things that happen in my life. There's nothing a therapist can get me to "think about differently" or "learn to accept", everything is just how it is.
I don't "think I'm worthless", I'm shown it every day when the people whose lives I try to be a part of actively want nothing to do with me (unless they want something from me). Or when I'm unable to make myself happy, because my brain doesn't work correctly.
I don't "have low self esteem", I'm realistic about my limitations and features. I know I could be smart if my brain worked correctly, but it doesn't. I know I can be funny and nice to be around, if given the opportunity (which I'm not frequently). I know I'm not very ugly, but also not very attractive, and I could look okay if I put in more effort (but, I never cared enough/had the opportunity to find a style I like, nor do I have anyone to impress, so I don't)
Everything that could be considered self-harmful behavior, was a means to an end in my attempts to make my life better. I cut myself because not feeling anything is more painful to me. I tried to kill myself because the chances of me ever getting better are extremely slim. I did DXM weekly for a couple years because it allowed me to experience feelings I otherwise never do (and I only stopped because of my anxiety.)
I started actively "trying to get better" again about 6 months ago and I'm already losing the will to continue. It's the same pattern over and over again of try a new med for a few weeks, realize it does literally nothing to me, rinse and repeat. I don't know how much more wasted, painful effort I can realistically rationalize before giving up and killing myself.

2023.06.03 09:28 BrownTown427 Booking Asuka's Current Raw Women's Title Reign

At Royal Rumble 2023, Asuka returned after a brief hiatus, sporting a deranged look reminiscent of her days as Kana. And since that point, the Empress of Tomorrow has solidified her powerful aura, winning the Elimination Chamber match and avenging her disappointing loss to Bianca at WrestleMania 39 by dethroning the EST at Night Of Champions. And while Asuka has been Raw Women’s Champion before, this time feels…different…
Monday Night Raw (5/29/23):
Following Night of Champions with the crowning of Asuka, it would appear the landscape of the women’s division has changed. While some individuals are surely eager to go after singles gold, this isn’t initially the case for the Way. In a backstage interview with Byron Saxton, Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell express their desire to go after the Women’s Tag Team Titles, only to be interrupted by the lunatic duo of Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville. Deville tries to get under the skin of the pairing, particularly LeRae, mocking her struggles to get victories as of late. However, Candice retorts that Sonya and Chelsea haven’t done anything either, their only actual success as a duo being making Adam Pearce question his own sanity. After a few more moments of bickering, Green tries to slap LeRae, but Hartwell blocks it for her, shoving Chelsea to the ground. Sonya shoves Indi back, and Candice in-turn attacks Deville, forcing several officials to have to separate things.
This results in a singles match later in the evening between Deville and LeRae, with Sonya trying to make an example out of the “Poison Pixie”. It’s a fairly back-and-forth encounter, with LeRae starting the match off hot, but Sonya is able to adapt, using her MMA background to her advantage with increasingly strong shots. However, as Sonya gains control, her emotions also start to fluctuate a bit. Rather than just go for the win at points, she decides to inflict further damage, regularly targeting the right arm in particular with a combination of stomps and armbars. However, the turning point of the match comes when Deville kneels down, once again looking to apply some type of submission hold…only for LeRae to transition it into the Garga-No Escape! While Sonya doesn’t submit, it gives her enough breathing room to mount a comeback, eventually hitting her signature springboard moonsault to finish things.
Candice LeRae def. Sonya Deville via pinfall
After the match, Candice and Indi take a moment to celebrate the win…BUT HERE COMES ASUKA! The Raw Women’s Champion is in the building, and she looks as maniacal as ever. She makes her way towards LeRae…and offers a handshake? Candice is definitely hesitant to accept, and for good reason, as when she starts moving her hand out…ASUKA HITS HER WITH A ROUNDHOUSE KICK! Indi tries to avenge her downed partner, but Asuka takes her out with a spinning backfist. The Empress moves back towards LeRae, staring at the injured right arm…AND SHE APPLIES A VICIOUS ARMBAR, SNAPPING IT IN THE PROCESS! Asuka eventually lets go, with Johnny Gargano and a medical official coming out to tend to LeRae while Adam Pearce wants to know what’s wrong with Asuka…to which she merely replies with a sinister smile…
Monday Night Raw (6/5/23):
About half-way through the show, Johnny Gargano comes to the ring, ready to give an update on his wife Candice LeRae. He says that while LeRae is unable to compete, it’s only for a short period of time, and the fracture to her arm was small enough as to where she won’t require surgery. However, Gargano also says that LeRae wanted him to pass along a message…which is why he’s calling out Asuka to the ring! On cue, the Empress comes out, looking at Johnny Wrestling with a curious look. Gargano says that once upon a time, he and his wife both had respect for Asuka’s accomplishments, especially her record-setting run in NXT. However, with the actions of last week, they no longer have those sentiments, and when LeRae returns from this set-back, she’s challenging you for that Raw Women’s Title! As Gargano says this, Asuka just begins giving a deranged laugh. No one in the arena knows what to make of this…until Asuka picks up a mic…to simply say…bye bye…
As Asuka makes her way to the ring apron, Gargano is left staring in confusion at what transpired…but suddenly, the lights go out! When they turn back on…a trio of masked men are destroying Johnny Wrestling! He tries to fight back, but he’s just overpowered, and left to be stomped on as Asuka just watches on from ringside, enjoying the carnage. The biggest of the three hits Gargano with a top rope splash, before what appears to be the leader hits…a wheelbarrow neckbreaker. As the individual hits this, Asuka comes back into the ring, standing alongside the figures. She whispers something to them, and they move their hand to the top of the masks, pulling them off to reveal…IT’S SAnitY! Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, and Killian Dain are all back in WWE, and it appears they’ve aligned themselves with the Empress of Tomorrow. But the question left to be answered… Where is Nikki Cross in all of this?
Monday Night Raw (6/12/23):
In a backstage segment early in the show, the camera shows Nikki Cross backstage, alone and looking down, drowning in her own crazed thoughts…until Eric Young enters the shot. Cross raises her head, looking expressionless while a smile slowly creeps across the face of Young. He asks her…
“Won’t you join us?”
However, before Nikki can answer…HERE COMES JOHNNY GARGANO! He dives at Eric, looking to get revenge on one of the men who decimated him the week prior. He’s successful initially, but soon enough, Wolfe and Dain rush in, prying Johnny off Young and starting to beat him down. Luckily for Gargano, he came prepared, as he too has backup in the form of Dexter Lumis! SAnitY backs off as Dexter comes in with a steel chair, but not before Young mouths the words…This isn’t over…
Monday Night Raw (6/19/23): Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis vs. Eric Young and Killian Dain
With the tensions continuing to rise between the Way and SAnitY, it was inevitable they’d have to square off at some point, and Adam Pearce decides to see if a tag match can resolve this. The match starts off with Gargano and Young, Johnny Wrestling anxious to annihilate him while Young is more amused than scared. Johnny is able to get the upper hand initially, a superkick giving him the brief opportunity to then apply a Garga-No Escape. However, Killian Dain breaks up the hold by just hitting a Senton on Gargano’s back, a tactical maneuver to give Young the chance to gain control. However, Lumis enters the ring as well, grabbing Dain and trying to set him up for a side slam. However, Killian avoids it, and the pair move to the outside of the ring to brawl. By the end of the match, Gargano is weakened, but he’s still got the power of adrenaline on his side. He’s able to tag in for Lumis, getting in a flurry of offense against the big man Dain, including a pair of superkicks to knock him off his feet. However, as he goes for the One Final Beat, Young grabs his foot by the ring apron, preventing him from springboarding into the ring. Gargano’s able to kick him away, but when Johnny does go for the maneuver, Dain catches him, planting him in the center of the ring. He follows up on it with a splash from the top rope, with Young tagging in as he does so. And with Killian shoving Lumis off the apron, Young is able to hit the Wheelbarrow Neckbreaker to finish the match.
SAnitY def. Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis
After the match, Asuka makes her way to the ring, standing alongside SAnitY once again. She looks at the downed Gargano, now with a disgusted look on her face rather than an evil grin. She turns to Young, who nods and motions for Dain and Wolfe to pick Johnny up. But right before Asuka can seemingly hit him with the Mist…Here comes Nikki Cross! She rushes to the ring, sliding in and looking right at Asuka as she does so. Young walks up to her, asking her the question…
“Are you with us, Nikki?”
Cross stares at Young for a moment…then to Wolfe…then to Dain…then to Asuka. It’s to the Raw Women’s Champion that she gives the longest stare, Nikki’s eyes slowly growing wider and her expression becoming more intense. And with that, she mutters just a few words…
“You hurt my friends…she hurt my best friend… now she will pay.”
And with that, Cross dives onto Asuka, unleashing a flurry of strikes and catching everyone in the ring by surprise. However, Young pries Nikki off of the Empress, to which Cross responds by starting to attack him! However, it’s short lived, as Asuka runs up behind Nikki and drops her with a roundhouse kick. She quickly gets her locked in a crossface chickenwing as well, Nikki unable to escape and ultimately passing out. Before she fades, she’s left to only see the disappointed looks on the face of the SAnitY members…”You made the wrong choice Nikki”. But the attention soon shifts back to Gargano and Lumis now. They’ve slowly risen to their feet, and Gargano, looking directly at Young, demands another fight! Young sighs, seemingly bored at the prospect of SAnitY having to dismantle those two again…but it shall be done. However, before they can move in for the kill, we suddenly hear crashes echo throughout the arena. They happen for a few seconds, before the lights dim slightly. An unfamiliar melodic theme starts playing, sounding slightly reminiscent of that of a final boss, but as the lights turn back on, it changes back into the more recognizable song…
NO ONE WILL SURVIVE! IT’S TOMMASO CIAMPA! After being on the shelf for months, he’s finally back, and as he gets into the ring, he looks at Johnny Gargano…there’s no shortage of history here. And while there’s a momentary tension as to what he’s gonna do, he sides with his former DIY partner, making it a more fair fight! Unfortunately, he doesn’t get the chance to lay into any of SAnitY, as they decide to make their exit, already having made a statement with the victory and assault on Asuka, nothing more needed to be done…tonight, at least.
Monday Night Raw (6/26/23): Indi Hartwell vs. Asuka - Non-Title Match
In her first match since beating Bianca at Night of Champions, Asuka looks to prove why she’s the champion. She starts off the match well, not letting Indi get any momentum by just rocking her with a series of kicks to the chest. After dragging Hartwell to the outside, Asuka begins going after the arm, slamming it several times into the ring post before deciding to inflict some pain to the skull with a tiger suplex. This momentarily causes the ref to check on her, potentially looking to end the match…but Asuka isn’t willing to let that happen. She gets Indi back in the ring, lining her up for a running hip attack…BUT HARTWELL TRANSITIONS IT INTO A GERMAN SUPLEX! Despite having just been on the ropes, Indi managed to use what she had left in the tank to take down Asuka, and as she gets to her feet, she feels the crowd surging behind her. She starts taking it to the Empress, getting her backed into the corner and landing a few solid chops. However, she gets a bit overzealous, trying to get Asuka on the top rope for a potential suplex attempt, only for the former Kana to kick her away and land a knee directly to the back of Indi’s neck. And with that, Asuka remains in the power position, eventually locking on the same Armbar that injured Candice LeRae and forcing Hartwell to tap or get snapped.
Asuka def. Indi Hartwell via submission
But before Asuka really has a chance to even get up…HERE COMES NIKKI CROSS! She runs out with a kendo stick, furious as to what transpired the week prior, and gets in a few shots on Asuka before Alexander Wolfe attempts to pry the weapon away. In response, Nikki shoves it into his gut, before hitting him with a swinging neckbreaker and sending a message to Asuka that she’s just as much of a force to be reckoned with. And it’s later announced that this match has been declared official for Money In the Bank: let’s see if these two dangerous competitors can live up to their classic from NXT…
Money In The Bank (7/1/23): Nikki Cross vs. Asuka (c) - Raw Women’s Championship
Despite not having a stipulation like their Last Woman Standing Match in 2017, the match is still intense from start-to-finish. Cross runs at Asuka immediately, getting in some shots with the elbow to the side of the face. Asuka is forced to a sitting position, allowing Nikki to gather some steam from running along the ropes before landing a kick to Asuka’s jaw! Unfortunately for Cross, her frenzied nature ends up backfiring, as when the action shifts to the outside, Asuka dodges a running attack and sends Nikki nearly head first into the barricade! With Nikki instinctively grabbing her head after the missed maneuver, Asuka sees what to target, dragging Cross to the ring apron and repeatedly crushing her skull into the ring post. And as the action shifts back into the ring, it’s just more of the same, Asuka being momentarily hit by mini-bursts of offense, but the damage inflicted on the skull clearly affecting her. This is evidenced when Cross has Asuka lined up for the swinging neckbreaker, potentially able to get her the win…only to collapse before she can properly hit it. With that, Asuka is able to apply the Asuka Lock, and as happened a couple of weeks ago, Cross passes out in the hold.
Asuka def. Nikki Cross via submission pass-out to retain the Raw Women’s Championship
On the Raw after Money in the Bank, Candice LeRae would make her return from injury, calling out Asuka for a match…only to learn she isn’t in the building. But she decides to still issue a challenge, saying that while she wanted the Raw Women’s Title initially…now it’s about more than that. Asuka took out Candice’s friends and family, and left her away from the ring for too long…now, she wants to beat Asuka for vengeance first, gold later. And later on, it’s confirmed that the match will be taking place when Asuka returns…except it’ll be for the title as well! Pearce claims that the decision is due to Asuka’s recent actions, as after all, letting someone try to break someone’s limb after a match with no repercussions is a pretty bad look. But while this choice of action would normally upset some superstars…it might just put a smile on Asuka’s face…
Monday Night Raw (7/10/23): Candice LeRae vs. Asuka
Before making her entrance, Candice LeRae gets herself prepared with the rest of the Way, with Nikki Cross sitting in a corner nearby as well. Indi tells her to be cautious…Asuka’s a very dangerous competitor. LeRae of course knows this, but she’s caught off-guard by some words of wisdom from Nikki several feet away:
“Destroy her.”
Candice looks at Nikki, who’s staring back at her with something in her eyes…A look of needing something… wanting Candice to kill the Empress. LeRae nods, and she heads out to the ring, more confident than ever…And she truly gives it her all. LeRae’s strategy is simple: prevent Asuka from using her signature kicks. And for most of the match, she executes on her plan, moving herself back whenever she senses a roundhouse coming and catching Asuka off-balance. However, this was never going to last, and once Asuka lands a kick to the gut, she’s able to gather steam. And while this doesn’t finish LeRae, the “Poison Pixie” even managing to hit a springboard moonsault AND lock in a Garga-No Escape at various points, Asuka eventually locks in an Armbar on the previously-injured limb that Candice can’t overcome.
Asuka def. Candice LeRae via submission to retain the Raw Women’s Championship
After the match, the rest of the Way comes out, helping Candice to her feet. As they do so, Asuka stares at them, and then begins…counting them? The Way and the commentary team are confused, but as Asuka only counts four people…a maniacal expression overtakes her. She starts walking quickly to the back, and a few moments later, it becomes clear what her intentions were…
As the Way walks backstage, they’re horrified to discover a brutalized Nikki Cross! They rush over to her, asking who did this…and to no one’s surprise, she says it was Asuka. However, it soon becomes clear to Gargano…Ciampa might be next! While Indi and Candice stay with Nikki, Johnny (and Dexter to a lesser extent) start rushing through the halls, trying to get to the right locker room…but it’s too late, as SAnitY and Asuka are seen moving away from it! While Lumis stands guard, Gargano rushes inside, and finds Ciampa not just taken out…but also sprayed by Asuka’s mist! Johnny rushes over, giving Tommaso a towel, but as Tommaso wipes the mist off his face…there appears to be a dark look in his eyes, something not seen in him since when he destroyed DIY…
Remaining Build To SummerSlam:
While Ciampa, Gargano, and Lumis keep their attention towards SAnitY for a bit, Asuka shifts away from LeRae, Hartwell, and Cross, having beaten all three after all. With an open mic, she begins giving one of her standard energetic promos, seemingly wanting to know who her next challenger is gonna be…even though no one is ready for Asuka. It’s not long before someone interrupts though…and it’s someone who Asuka has grown familiar with in 2023…It’s Bianca Belair! The EST remained off television for several weeks following Night of Champions, but now, she’s back and angrier than ever. Bianca grabs the mic straight out of Asuka’s hand, and cuts a quick promo:
“Asuka… you say no one’s ready for you. But you’re wrong… because I’ve ALWAYS been ready for you. I proved that at WrestleMania 39, when I beat you clean in the center of this ring. And what did you do? You had to use that mist, that cursed, blinding mist. And you know what? Congratulations, it got you the title, but not for long. Because I say we have ONE MORE MATCH. But I think it’s time to have a match where no excuses can be made, and there are no rules to be broken. Asuka… At SummerSlam…I challenge you to HELL… IN A CELL!”
The crowd are clearly in favor of this stipulation…And it appears Asuka is too! She starts nodding repeatedly, and Bianca just stares on with a prepared look, perhaps fazed in the past by Asuka’s personality traits but now just ready to finally vanquish her and get the Raw Women’s Title back in her possession. In the remaining weeks, Bianca competes multiple times, getting the ring rust off with multiple victories, while Asuka is content with sitting at ringside for both contests…studying her competition…
SummerSlam (8/5/23): Bianca Belair vs. Asuka (c) - Hell in a Cell Match for the Raw Women’s Championship
We’ve finally made it to the Biggest Party of the Summer, and what better of a place to host it than in Detroit at Ford Field (definitely no bias as a Lions fan)! Once both Asuka and Belair are locked in the cage, the match starts at a feverish place, Bianca hitting a strong shoulder tackle only for Asuka to respond with a spinning backfist a few moments later! As the dust settles on the first fifteen seconds, the competitors look at each other, giving a momentary smirk and scoff apiece before continuing with the action. Bianca showcases her power, getting the Empress lifted in the Gorilla Press position and just hurling her at the cell wall! The several-foot fall to the floor certainly adds to the blow, and Bianca continues the assault outside the ring, slamming Asuka’s head repeatedly into the cage! However, she decides to look under the ring for a weapon, a table quickly catching her eye. She pushes it into the ring, but makes the mistake of turning her back to Asuka while doing so, the former Kana grabbing her from behind and hitting a Tiger Suplex onto the floor!
With Asuka now the lone woman standing, she follows up Bianca’s decision to look under the ring, pulling out a kendo stick. She feels it around in her grasp, getting a good feel for the damage she’s about to inflict. Once Bianca groggily gets to her feet, Asuka just decimates her back, hitting the stick ten times in immediate succession! However, Bianca’s able to dodge an eleventh shot targeted towards the throat, pulling the kendo stick to her and snapping it in half! Asuka looks briefly stunned, but not before she gives a condescending set of claps. In response, Belair grabs her, picking her up for a powerbomb and sending Asuka’s back to connect with the ring apron! Bianca then drags Asuka into the ring, proceeding to set up a table and initially primed to hit a K.O.D. through it. However, Asuka grabs Bianca’s hair, weakening her grip momentarily and presenting an opportunity to escape. Upon doing so, Asuka roundhouse kicks Belair, before getting her positioned on the table, climbing to the top rope…AND HITS A SPLASH ON BIANCA RIGHT THROUGH IT! 1-2-KICKOUT!
Despite the table spot being unable to put away Bianca, Asuka appears unfazed. She exits the ring, bringing a pair of steel steps back into the squared circle. Asuka picks Belair up, seemingly trying to hit a brainbuster on it…But Belair dodges, landing backwards on the steps before turning around and hitting a mini-elevated Spear! This leaves both women down for a few moments, but Bianca rises to her feet first. She gets in some of her signature offense, including a spinebuster on the steel steps! However, her attempt at a K.O.D. on the steps doesn’t work in her favor, with Asuka once again avoiding it. And unfortunately for Belair, Asuka is able to hit her with a suplex on the steps, this being the key factor for the rest of the match-up. With Bianca’s power lessened a bit AND Asuka’s submission hold targeting the back, she faces a tall task, and is ultimately unable to overcome it, the Asuka Lock resulting in a pass-out.
Asuka def. Bianca Belair via submission pass-out to retain the Raw Women’s Championship
After an impressive victory at SummerSlam, Asuka has definitely proven that she’s going to be difficult to beat. But soon enough, she finds herself confronted by a potentially harmful numbers game…
Monday Night Raw (8/7/23): Damage CTRL Promo
Despite recent events not going so well for Damage CTRL, with Dakota Kai tearing her ACL and neither Iyo Sky nor Bayley able to capture the Money in the Bank briefcase, they’re still determined to get momentum back on their side. Bayley makes the bold decision to call out Asuka, saying that if she were actually a fighting champion, she’d consider accepting a match for the title. Asuka comes out, grinning at Bayley trying to goad her into a title opportunity. Asuka looks at Bayley as just another poor soul to be destroyed, but Iyo…Iyo has potential. Asuka even tells Sky…”Bayley isn’t your friend…but I am…”
This seems to get in Iyo’s head, as she begins looking questioningly at Bayley, who attempts to diffuse the situation by just pointing out Asuka being a freak who gets in people’s heads. In response, Asuka kicks Bayley square in the gut, and when Iyo instinctively goes to fight, Asuka shakes her head…I don’t want to fight you… You don’t need to be part of this…
Remaining Build To Extreme Rules:
Over the coming weeks, Bayley becomes a little more sympathetic, her intentions appearing less out of pure arrogance and more about striving to win championship gold back and improve her honor. She goes on a winning streak, but when confronting Adam Pearce about getting a confirmed title shot, he says there’s one more person she has to beat…Iyo Sky.
At this same time, Iyo looks perturbed whenever she’s on television, still at Bayley’s side but signs pointing to her being less convinced than when Damage CTRL began. And after Bayley does defeat Iyo to earn the #1 Contendership, Sky is just left sitting in the ring, staring down at the mat whilst utterly disappointed. Bayley offers her a handshake, but Asuka stands at ringside, motioning her to come roll out of the ring and stand tall with her. In response, Iyo moves in neither woman’s direction, rolling out to the entrance ramp and walking away alone, uncertain of what her future holds.
But with Extreme Rules approaching, there must also be a stipulation, and after a set of assaults from Asuka leave Bayley staring at the lights, Bayley decides it’s in both of their best interest to settle on…A Last Woman Standing Match! Asuka can try to keep putting her down, but she’s gotten back up each time, and come the PPV…The reign of the Empress will be history.
Extreme Rules: Bayley vs. Asuka (c) - Last Woman Standing Match for the Raw Women’s Championship
In a rematch of their TakeOver: Dallas encounter, the feel of the match is similar to what it was several years ago. Bayley, despite having been around in WWE longer, is the underdog, looking to prove herself against a terrorizing monster who we’re unsure can truly be beaten. The action quickly spills out of the ring, with Bayley even managing to hit a quick Bayley-To-Belly Suplex. Unfortunately, Asuka gets up before even a count of 5, disturbing Bayley. The action spills into the crowd for a while, with Asuka suplexing Bayley on the staircase and the former “Hugger” sent tumbling down for a solid five seconds. But eventually, Bayley recaptures the momentum, finding a trash can with weapons and using a kendo stick to start wailing on Asuka. And as the action approaches a set-up table, Bayley is able to not just prop her up on it, but successfully hit an Elbow Drop from a ledge through it as well! Bayley gets up at a count of three, and while Asuka is left stunned by the move, she recovers at a count of 8, continuing the match-up.
From there, the match spills back closer to the ring, with Bayley putting Asuka in the ring before grabbing a table. She sets it up, but Asuka manages to recover in time to avoid a Bayley-To-Belly through it, instead tossing Bayley to the side momentarily before going at her with a running hip attack. Asuka keeps control for a bit, but as she looks to put Bayley through the table…Here comes Iyo Sky! She slowly walks to the ring, not attacking Asuka initially, but giving Bayley enough time to send Asuka off the top rope and to the floor. However, with the action back on the outside, Asuka looks to be a bit desperate, using her signature Mist to blind Bayley! After this happens, Iyo rushes over to Bayley to try and help…But Bayley shoves her down hard to the floor, thinking it was Asuka! Meanwhile, the real Asuka appears behind Bayley, dragging her back into the ring. Asuka decides to lock on the crossface chickenwing, attempting to pass out Bayley, but this seems to only increase the fire in her spirit, Bayley able to back her into a corner to break the hold. Bayley rubs her eyes, improving her vision, and she drags Asuka to the table, seemingly able to hit the Bayley-To-Belly through the table this time…
BUT IYO HITS BAYLEY IN THE BACK WITH A STEEL CHAIR FROM OUT OF NOWHERE! Bayley falls to her knees, slowly turning around with a look of heartbreak and pain on her face. Iyo returns the look with an icy cold stare, before Asuka pops-up behind Bayley, applying the Asuka Lock to pass the former “Role Model” out. But given this requires a ten count for Bayley to be down, and Asuka wanting to see what Iyo can do…she motions to the table. Iyo nods, getting Bayley set-up, climbing to the top rope, and hitting a Moonsault, crushing Bayley’s ribs, her friendship, and her hopes of winning the match in one fell swoop.
Asuka def. Bayley via KO to retain the Raw Women’s Championship
After the match, Sky raises Asuka’s hand, signifying the start of an absolutely lethal new duo in WWE…
With Iyo Sky now having made her allegiance clear, Asuka would appear set-up to remain dominating moving forward. However, the enemies she’s made over the past several months aren’t so quick to forget what transpired, which could potentially create problems…
Build To Survivor Series:
Despite having already made an impact to this point, Asuka and Iyo Sky aren’t just going to put away challengers…it’s time to take out everyone. After a singles win on Raw, Becky Lynch would be blindsided by Iyo, being laid out with several shots of the Steel Chair before a Moonsault to cap things off. The following week, Bayley expresses her dismay at being left alone, to which Asuka and Iyo interrupt, immediately kickstarting a brawl that would seem to favor them once again…Until out comes Becky Lynch! Despite having been bitter rivals earlier in the year, Becky makes the save for Bayley, the pair nodding at each other afterwards to signify a slight respect…We don’t have to like each other… but there’s a bigger threat to be stopped…
But soon enough, this action spills past just being a two-on-two situation. Zoey Stark, the former tag team partner of Iyo Sky in NXT, decides that Becky didn’t suffer enough during their rivalry after helping Trish at Night of Champions, and that it’s worth it for these veterans like her and Bayley to be ousted. Along with that, Asuka’s power and general craziness draws the interest of the Unholy Union known as Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn, the pair pledging loyalty to The Empress and perfectly willing to destroy Becky and Bayley. However, there are several other competitors backstage sick of seeing Asuka gaining an army, with Bianca Belair and the Way coming to the save to help even the odds. And of course, after a brawl featuring all of these competitors, William Regal comes out briefly to make his patented announcement:
To determine which team gets the advantage leading into Survivor Series, we get ourselves a strong match in Iyo Sky vs. Becky Lynch, really the catalyst of what’s led into a two-on-one situation into an upcoming 5v5 match inside a destructive steel structure. Becky more than holds their own, but Iyo Sky shines even brighter, a cheap shot by Stark eventually allowing Iyo to hit the Moonsault and give the “heels” the advantage.
Survivor Series: Bianca Belair, Bayley, Becky Lynch, Nikki Cross, and Candice LeRae vs. Asuka, Iyo Sky, Zoey Stark, Alba Fyre, and Isla Dawn - War Games Match
Kicking off the match is Zoey Stark and Becky Lynch, with Becky initially successful in getting Zoey downed, but Isla Dawn coming in presents a problem. She’s initially able to hold her off, but a chop block by Zoey Stark and a subsequent attack of the leg leaves Becky in a rough spot. She’s able to get some assistance, with Nikki Cross coming in with a trash can lid and just whacking Zoey and Isla around with ease. However, Alba Fyre is next to come out, and upon seeing Cross staring her down from inside the cage, she grabs a kendo stick, ready to defend herself. While Nikki initially gets the advantage, Stark and Dawn are able to pull Nikki back, sending her into the steel cage repeatedly. Bianca coming in next is a game changer however, the EST taking control of the match-up and getting a slight breather while awaiting the fourth competitor…which is Asuka!
But as the rest of the field comes in, with Asuka being the last entrant for her team and Bayley for the opposite side, the action starts to get more and more intense. With all of the competitors brawling in one ring, Iyo sees the chance to hit a Moonsault from the top of the cage, wiping out everybody (including herself)! However, a table being brought into the mix benefits the bayfaces, Bayley hitting Fyre with a Bayley-To-Belly through it (she finally got to hit it… just not on Asuka). However, the ending sequence comes down to Asuka and Iyo on their feet against Bayley and Becky, back where it essentially first started…AND IT ENDS WITH IO HITTING A MOONSAULT ON BAYLEY! 1-2-3!
Team Asuka def. Team Becky via pinfall
Just like that, Iyo Sky has once again proved her worth, defeating her former stablemate to win the match for her team and cementing herself as a force to be moving forward. And though a fairly small shot, we can see Asuka glance over at Iyo, a slight frown on her face for a moment before moving back to stand with the rest of her team. What could that mean…
Build To Royal Rumble:
Despite the result of the War Games Match, Becky Lynch isn’t through with either Asuka nor Iyo by a long shot. She fights off both of them over the coming weeks, along with picking up several singles victory, establishing herself as the next #1 Contender. And as Lynch points out, she and Asuka have history at Royal Rumble. Asuka beat her in singles action in 2019…before Lynch went on to win the Royal Rumble and headline Mania. But this isn’t about the Rumble match now…it’s time to put away the Empress.
As for Iyo, she also has a run of singles success, carrying a lot of momentum heading into the Royal Rumble Match. And soon, we learn that she requested training from one of the most respected female competitors in the locker room, a former NXT UK Champion…Meiko Satomura! While Satomura doesn’t intend to compete right away, she’s more than willing to help Iyo, with vignettes being shown of them together and Satomura even being at ringside for her matches. However, as this keeps happening, Asuka’s looks towards Iyo become more and more strained. Sky is abandoning me… after all I did for her… something’s going to change soon enough…
Royal Rumble: Becky Lynch vs. Asuka (c) - Raw Women’s Championship
Earlier in the night, Iyo Sky does indeed win the Royal Rumble match, punching her ticket to WrestleMania. This doesn’t seem to affect Asuka’s thoughts however, the Empress looking as ruthless and as calculated as ever en route to using an Armbar to submit Becky after a pretty back-and-forth encounter. And while Asuka proved herself the master of the Armbar between the pairing, Iyo Sky coming out with Meiko Satomura to acknowledge the title win seems to aggravate something in Asuka. Her grin has become a definite frown, and she stares an icy dagger through the pairing. Something isn’t right here…
Asuka def. Becky Lynch via submission to retain the Raw Women’s Title
Build To WrestleMania:
In a conversation between Meiko Satomura and Iyo Sky on an episode of Raw, Satomura asks if Sky would be willing to use her Rumble Victory position to challenge Asuka. Sky doesn’t look too convinced about doing that, which Satomura says is fine, but it’s advisable to weigh all her options. However, in the background, Asuka can be seen, carefully listening to the conversation.
A week later, Satomura addresses the WWE Universe. She’s made the announcement that she wants to have one last run before she retires, and wants to face some of the best names this women’s division has to offer…which is why she’s challenging Asuka for Elimination Chamber! Asuka comes out, her face paint being more red than usual…but while it looks like she’s having to contain herself, she shakes Satomura’s hand, seemingly paying respect to a legend.
Elimination Chamber: Meiko Satomura vs. Asuka (c) - Raw Women’s Championship
Unfortunately for Satomura, this retirement run of sorts looked to hit the ground before it could even get going. While she catches the Empress off guard at the beginning of the encounter, as time moves on, Asuka appears to be getting more and more angry. This comes to a boiling point when after one Tiger Suplex, Asuka hits another…then another…then another…then another! The ref pleads for Asuka to quit the assault, which she does…only to pull a Bryan Danielson and just start repeatedly kicking Satomura in the face! This goes on for disturbingly long, and when it’s become clear that Satomura is passed out, the ref calls for the bell, him having made the discretion for the match to end.
Asuka def. Meiko Satomura via ref stoppage
After the match, Iyo Sky rushes to the ring, checking on the woman who’s helped her out tremendously over the past couple of months. Asuka looks down at Iyo, a look of disgust on her face, before demanding to know who Sky is facing at WrestleMania. And it better be a specific answer…
The crowd roar in approval, Asuka somehow shocked initially…until a smile comes across her face. I’m not surprised you made that choice…but unfortunately, it’s the wrong’s a shame this has to happen Iyo…so much potential…
WrestleMania 40: Iyo Sky vs. Asuka (c) - Raw Women’s Championship
Despite that inner monologue running through Asuka’s head at Elimination Chamber, Sky proves why she’s not to be taken lightly. On the Grandest Stage of them All, Iyo just looks…better. Having been around Asuka for several months, she knows the mechanics of her offense, doing a good job at avoiding those signature kicks while also having the speed advantage. And at the end of the match, Sky proves herself superior over The Empress of Tomorrow, hitting the second Moonsault of the match to pin Asuka, and end a spectacular title run while opening a new chapter for another one.

2023.06.03 09:28 Kristine_ale1 91-year-old female patient with encephalopathy mystery.

My grandma is a 91-year-old patient that has type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and cirrhosis. She was diagnosed with cirrhosis 5 years ago but was left untreated because doctors said it wouldn't advance due to her age. On Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14th she fell and broke her left femur. She was taken into surgery Monday morning and was given a total of 3 pints of blood. She was lucid and conscious before and after surgery. She was tired because she couldn't sleep the day she broke her leg, Monday night, or Tuesday night due to her being uncomfortable. On Tuesday, she was given cetirizine which usually helps with her allergies and makes her sleepy. It didn't work because as mentioned above, she was unable to sleep Tuesday night. She fell asleep until Wednesday around 5 am. This day was the start of an unusual behavior. She remained unconscious for the following week. She started saying incoherent sentences, wouldn't eat or open her eyes, she didn't respond but would make complaining noises at night. Doctors believed it was a type of hypoactive delirium and she needed time, she was then also given Escilatropam and Rivotril. Wednesday night (exactly a week since her last normal day) she started bleeding through her feces and lost a lot of blood (6.8 hemoglobin), she was transfused 3 pints of blood. Turned out she had an ulcer. Ammonia levels were high and it was believed she was encephalopathic and that her liver was altered for some reason. Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis was diagnosed and this was supposedly the reason for her unconsciousness. After the bleeding, she went back to normal and was lucid again eating and talking, this lasted for two days. Suddenly she went back to her unconsciousness for three days, with no talking no opening of eyes no reacting. Then, for the second time, she came back to normalcy again eating and being who she is, this lasted for two days again. Today she went back to unconsciousness and doctors have no explanation. Ammonia levels are good, electrolytes are good, the round of antibiotics was completed, 2 more pints of blood were given and now all her labs are perfect, and a CT scan of the brain is normal. What could be the cause of these sudden ups and downs?

2023.06.03 09:28 torgian Durango or Denver ?? Moving to colorado

Hey guys.
I used to live near Denver about ten years ago before life took me in another direction. Now I"m coming back after securing a remote job (which happens to be in Durango). But,I can basically live anywhere in Colorado.
I had never been to Durango before, so I'm wondering if moving there would be a good idea or not. For context, personally, I really like road and mountain biking, as well as other outdoors activities, but cycling takes the top.
My wife is Chinese and in finance; not sure if Durango is a good place for her regarding career prospects, but we both have expressed interest in at least considering it as a place to live for the next few years. I'm guessing prospects would be better in Boulder / Denver area.
She's not as outdoorsy as me, but does play badminton and likes going on hikes.

2023.06.03 09:28 throoowawaaay07 Iniisip ko [27M] kung dapat na ba kaming magbreak ni SO [26F] due to our unresolved issues in our relationship

Hi AdultingPH. New to reddit. I just want to gather some insights about my long-term relationship.
Background of our relationship. I'm 27M and my SO is 26F. We were college friends that turned lovers. We've been together for 3 years. It took me almost 3 years itago yung feelings ko sa kanya before formally courting her in our adult years. So let's say na antagal kong hinantay at pinagdasal na magkachance kami to be lovers despite feeling na baka hindi niya ako gusto. I still waited for years to tell her how I feel.
Then, here comes the first year at naging kami. Sobrang saya ko. Everything is so perfect ang saya namin. You know, the chase part. Naginsist din ako ipakilala niya ko sa parents niya agad kasi ganun ka-clear intentions ko sa kanya. Sobrang mahal ko siya. All those years I waited feels worth it. Sobrang masaya lang na halos araw araw we shower each other with love. You get it. She's the girl of my dreams kumbaga. Dream come true. Answered prayer.
Here's where ugly things started. Before we celebrated our first year. I found out that she lied to me about being a virgin. She came from a long-term relationship so somehow inexpect ko naman na hindi. But I just found out na she lied to me about it at of course, being from a past relationship din na full of lies, na-off ako. Being lied to, parang ung memories namin became stale na hindi genuine at kasinungalingan lang. I felt so hurt. But napagusapan namin somehow napatawad ko naman siya agad. I almost told her na I wanted to break up but she begged for me. Lumuhod pa siya sa harap ko habang umiiyak. Ayon tinuloy lang namin at nagkapatawaran. Then, another away before our first anniversary. I got female friends sa new job ko. Batchmates ko sila so naging friends ko na din. Magkaaway kami one night then nalaman niya nakikipaglaro ako ng online games sa said female friends and accused me of cheating on her. Ayon. Basta then nabasa pa niya chat namin nung friend ko na yun where I told na galit na siya kakalaro ko. She felt upset dun. Although di ko naman intensyon and friends ko lang talaga mga yun. I almost had to cut of these friends para lang di na siya maparanoid. That's the end of our honeymoon stage ika nga nagkalamat na.
Just another background lang din. We both came from long term relationship with cheating partners. At meron din akong history ng cheating na alam niya which is naisip ko din baka maging factor for her to not like me pero di naman.
Then, 2nd-3rd year of relationship. I summarise ko na lang. (1) She started to be, i don't want to say "controlling" pero parang ganun. She gets upset when I spend time with my friends. Dumating sa part na tinanong ko siya na gusto ba niyang mawalan ako ng kaibigan. It's ugly. Ilang beses namin napagawayan. I always play online games with friends na halos matigil just because nagupset siya most of the time. Btw, she's introvert and on wfh kaya halos wala siya social life compared to me. (2) Mahilig siyang magsilent treatment na bigla na lang niya akong hindi papansinin buong araw or half of the day then manghuhula na lang ako why. Kumbaga parang I'm walking on egg shells na. Hindi naman ako manghuhula pero ayon. Parang kulang kami sa communication talaga. when I ask her why usually di sinasahot hanggang sa maging okay kami. Then the issue will be swept under the rug na lang. Nagaccumulate na lang yan hanggang sa andami na namin di nagpaguusapan. Pag okay naman kami masaya naman. We spend time together, we laugh together, my happy times kami marami. It's just that nagpile up yung unresolved issues.
Here's what happened recently. For a month yata yun, she stopped telling me "i love you" then ginaya ko na after a week. Although we talk na parang okay lahat pero wala nang iloveyou. We Still spend time, have sex ganyan. Turns out na andami niyang hinanakit na recently lang niya nilabas lahat. Eto yung unresolved issues na nga niya. I mentioned she's not good communicator kaya sa chat lang niya nasabi mga hinanakit niya. Gaya ng hindi na kami sweet, we don't talk about our future, yung mga pinagseselosan niya, dami. The way I act around her. Yung mga bagay na kung sana napagusapan namin nang maaga di sana naipon. Pero tao lang kasi ako. Hindi ko alam irereact. Parang main na trigger niya is hindi na ako kasing sweet ng dati. I told her na ever since our first fight before ng first anniversary namin and add pa yung mga naging issues namin sa ibang bagay nafed up na ako at nasanay sa ganito lang. Mahal ko siya eh. Pero parang nakakapagod siyang mahalin.
To add lang, nagkaroon ako ng condition that caused me to have long employment gaps so depressing kaya nakadagdag din siguro sa challenges namin. But okay naman she's still supported. At recenly nagkaroon na ulit ako ng maayus na trabaho. I'm happy and meet new people. Kaya lang recent issue namin, iniinvite ako sa outing at she said na di siya comfortable. Eto eh habang nagchat siya sakin ng lahat ng unresolved issues sa relasyon namin. After few weeks from that okay naman kami. Ang sweet namin sa isat isa until naisip ko na pumayag na sa gusto niya na wag na ko sumama pero I asked here how about sa mga susunod na invites na marereceive ko. Pero sabi niya, sumama na daw ako kasi iyun yung tama. Wag ko na daw kunsintihin pagtoxic niya. Ok naman kami somehow.
Current stage namin is we're testing the waters kung itutuloy pa namin relationship namin after all these issues. Sabi ko sa kanya okay lang sakin if ituloy or not. Maiintindihan ko. Mahal ko naman siya. At legal kami both sides nakoconsider ko din. We're generally happy naman it's just that these recurring issues at considering our future na lang din. Naninimbang din naman siya kung itutuloy pa ba given na baka magrelapse lang mga away namin which is parang di niya sure.
Ang haba sorry. I may have left some details pa pero ayan na lahat naisip ko while typing these.
TL;DR Unresolved issues is taking a toll in our relationship. GF has toxic behaviours towards me spending time with friends. Can this be worked out? Is it worth it?

2023.06.03 09:27 REQ52767 What if the MCU was the Marvel Extended Cinematic Universe (MECU)? Or, what if the Marvel Cinematic Universe had been structured like the DC Extended Universe?

I got the idea from this post. It is an interesting thought experiment about an alternate world where Marvel’s cinematic endeavors were messy. Thank goodness Marvel didn’t follow DC’s path. Let me know what changes you would make to my hypothetical:
  1. Captain America Winter Solider - This version starts with a 30 minute prologue during the war (aka the Man of Steel Krypton sequence). This sequence introduces Bucky and is a truncated version of First Avenger. A revised version of Winter Soldier plays out.
  2. Captain America v. Ironman: Avengers Assemble - After their work on Winter Soldier, the Russo Brothers are given this film to launch the Marvel Extended Cinematic Universe (MECU). Tony seeks to keep Cap in check after being at the final battle in Winter Soldier and seeing the destruction (the battle was over New York in this version). This leads to a one on one fight that is prodded by Justin Hammer. Thor is a presence throughout the movie and interacts with Stark. Justin Hammer creates Ultron using some of his tech and stolen Stark tech. Ultron is the third act villain to unite the heroes. Thor arrives to help Cap and Tony. Before landing the killing blow, Cap is seemingly vaporized. Tony and Thor how to use Hammer’s hero files to assemble the Avengers to be prepared to defend earth.
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy - Originally a gothic and dour version of the film directed by David Ayer, studio melding has caused a tonal monstrosity.
  4. Thor - Prequel film set 100+ years in the past that has Thor defend humanity from his brother Loki. Thor’s love for humanity grows through his attachment to Jane Foster who seemingly dies in a third act sacrifice.
  5. The Avengers - Loki, who Thor thought dead, returns to threaten the earth. The Avengers are assembled to combat his threat. This version of the team includes Ironman, Black Widow, Hulk, Antman, and Black Panther. At some point, The Avengers learn Captain America wasn’t vaporized by Ultron, but instead teleported to another planet. They bring him home since Tony doesn’t think the team can be led without him. This film feels like a tonal mess since the original directors, The Russo Brothers, were fired and replaced by Joss Whedon halfway through production.
  6. Black Panther - A stand-alone solo film set after The Avengers and exploring the world of Wakanda.
  7. Spider-Man Homecoming - This version is a mostly standalone film (aka no Stark) with little connection to the MECU. Captain America has a headless cameo at the end.
  8. The Nova Corps (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Nebula) - A spin-off of Guardians of the Galaxy focusing on Nebula leaving behind her life of abuse at the hands of Thanos. Richard Rider, Sam Alexander, and the Nova Corps characters from the first Guardians are major players.
  9. Thor Love and Thunder - Thor combats The Universal Church of Truth and their promise. The promise allows him to encounter his departed Jane Foster again, but he must accept letting her go.
  10. The Russo Brother’s Avengers - After much fan prodding and pleading, the definitive 4 hour Russo Brothers version of The Avengers is released. One major change is that the Avengers see Thanos through the wormhole right after defeating Loki. Thanos vows to go to earth to retrieve “his great prize”, the Infinity Stones. This will never be paid off.
  11. The Guardians of the Galaxy - James Gunn is brought in to liven up the team and give his rendition of the Guardians.
  12. Venom- Tom Hardy had a big ego and refused to crossover with Spider-Man so this is a stand-alone film about Venom. The post credits scene sets up a fight with Captain America, which will never be paid off.
  13. Spider-Man Far From Home - Partially reworked standalone version (aka no Stark references). Thor is the deus ex-machina at the end of the film.
  14. Antman - Scott Lang, The Antman, decides to use the Quantum Realm to time travel and undo the mistake that landed him in jail originally. He wants the time he missed with his daughter back. However, in the new timeline, there is no Captain America to stop the Winter Soldier and Hydra. Scott must team up with an alternate self, Captain Carter, and Tom Cruise’s Ironman to save the world. Robert Downey Jr. agreed to return in the opening sequence to give his character closure.
  15. Ms. Marvel - No one is sure if this is in the current universe or the impending reboot’s universe.
  16. Black Panther Wakanda Forever - As is.
Bonus- Legendary Star-Lord - While filming The Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn was enamored by Chris Pratt’s performance and wrote an 8 episode Disney+ series for him. This came out shorty after the movie.
Then, a reboot occurs. Only James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and potentially Ms. Marvel move over to the new universe. Everyone else is recast.

2023.06.03 09:27 Expensive_Thought_40 AITA for ruining vacation because my cat suddenly died?

(English Is my secondary language and I am not from the US)
Me [27F], my Boyfriend [34M] and two of our friends [27 F and 32 M] went on a couples vacation about 2 hours away from our hometown. It was supposed to be a week long stay, from Saturday to saturday.
On Wednesday, so right after 3 days, by BF recieved a tearful call from his mom, my cat sitter, that she found one of my cats dead on the floor. She seemed absolutely healthy and happy the night before and was excited to recieve visitors. We were absolutely devastated, I loved her so much.
Regardless to say, the vacation was over for me. Even if I couldn't do anything to help her live anymore, I couldn't leave her in my apartment for the next days. I called my parents to arrange her funeral.
Now, we told our friends, who were right there when I received the news, that they have two options: they could stay or come with us. The problem is, that I was the only one with a car and we booked a residence at a rather remote location, with the next town being 15 minutes away by car and the bus arriving every two hours. That is also what they said so they started packing. They were not happy.
On the ride home (my BF insisted on driving, so I could process my grief), 27F complained about her lost vacation. My BF answered something neutral but I could hear he was pissed at her complaining.
Now that my cat was buried and a few days have passed I recall the last days. And I want to know, if I was the AH for ruining our vacation? I am still grieving and unhappy with our friends lack of empathy, but I guess it was just a cat for them, which is fine. But I am reconsidering my friendship with them. But maybe they were right to be angry, I don't know anymore.

2023.06.03 09:26 urtypicalgameaddict How am I suppose to feel about my BF (30M) taking a roadtrip and his ex(30F) volunteered herself to go?

My boyfriend (30M) and I (25F) have been together for about a year and a half. My boyfriend has a child with the woman(30F) from his previous relationship. They both try to maintain a healthy and good co-parenting relationship with one another and they accomplish this by spending holidays together at family gatherings, attending school and extra currical activies together as well as keeping an open door policy with their daughter: which means they allow her to choose who's house she wants to go to for the night or when she wants to go. I try not to involve myself too much or give my opinions on his parenting style or decisions or his relationship with the mother of their child as I feel that is not my place to do so. I'll be honest and say that it can be extremely difficult to have a relationship with someone who has a pre-established family, especially since I'm someone who does not have kids. Of course, every relationship comes with their own obstacles and this is definitely one for us because alot of the times I don't understand his decisions or what he goes through in his situation.
Recently, he informed me that his parents would like to have his daughter for the summer and they could meet up halfway to exchange her. This would be approximately a six hour drive to the meet up point and a six hour drive back. After telling him that I'm sorry he has to drive back alone, he informed me that his ex told him that she would be joining them on their drive. I feel extremely uncomfortable with this as they would be sharing a six hour drive alone back together. He tried to understand why I felt uncomfortable with this and reassure me that they are only doing this for their daughter and that her reasoning was to spend more time with her before their daughter is gone for a week or two but I still cannot help but feel uneasy about it. He had offered to tell her that she couldn't come but even that felt weird because I feel like that would make me appear controlling or insecure. At the same time, it bothers me that this wasn't something he asked me about prior to agreeing to her coming to make sure I was okay with it. It feels like there aren't boundaries there. Another part of me is slightly jealous because this feels like a family road trip for them. Now I cannot go because of work, distance, time commitment etc but it might also be awkward that the ex extremely dislikes me.
I don't know how I'm suppose to feel or how to work through my emotions on this. I don't know if how I'm feeling is even valid. Any advice?

2023.06.03 09:26 corricarlh I was Mistaken for an escort and I didn’t mind.

Last night I went alone to a wine bar that was connected to a hotel. My boyfriend was working late and I was just trying to wind down, so I try to put myself together a bit even though it was just a Tuesday night. I sat down, looked around and was reading the wine list when someone sent me a drink.
A little later, an older gentleman walked over and introduced himself as Gerald. He asked me if I would like to join him and his friends and gestured to a table of four older gentlemen. At this point, I still thought it was just drinks, they probably saw me alone and wanted some female company, so I accepted. I sat down with them, flirted a bit, then they lowered their voice and asked me what my rate was. I was confused, then shocked and didn't really know what to say. It wasn't my best look so it felt so flattering an a turn on that they thought I was out looking for clients.
Without thinking it through and possibly because I was a little wine drunk, I stammered, "A h....hundred?" They were surprised and Gerald replied, "For an hour with the five of us?" Uncertain if that was too high or too low, I just said "yeah.." They were confused but quite happy to hear that, so we went up to one of their rooms and one of them handed me an envelope that had $400 inside.
As they took their clothes off, two of them took some pills that I figured was for erections. One guy said, to them, "you sure going over your dose is a good idea?" He then turned to me and joked "If these two get a heart attack, the rest of us will tell the cops you had nothing to do with it" I giggled and gave him a kiss. We walked over to the bed and they felt me up while stripping me naked. It started with a blowbang, then they put on condoms and took turns with my pussy. It felt good, they were aggressive and knew exactly how they wanted to fuck me, so I directed my attention to jerking and sucking the other guys while one guy hammers away at my pussy.
It took quite a while for them to cum because they were taking turns and resting in between but one by one, they eventually all finished. Most decided to paint my face or have me swallow and I got a few body shots too. As they sat down to recover, I wiped the cum into my mouth, then started helping by sucking them. It took a while and some got hard before the others, so I fucked those ones first.
The guys wanted my ass for the second round, so we did DP but everyone would get to fuck my ass. They were okay with the intimacy of DP and it seemed like they do this pretty often as the positioning was no problem for them. They fucked me hard but it took them much longer to cum this time round. Meanwhile, I was at the edge orgasm throughout the fuck, with them taking me over that edge several times.
The night concluded with them all cumming on my face. We had like 45min left but they were done, so I took the time to clean up then hugged and snuggled a bit with them. I left after four hours and got home before my boyfriend did. Turns out I my rate was far too low but oh well, it was fun and this isn't actually my profession.

2023.06.03 09:25 Allamalaaquamala Zenfone 9 camera not working before and after security patch

EU user here, anyone else having the same problem, that suddenly the gimbal started moving when starting the camera app, then the camera gets all laggy and then goes black? I updated yesterday and it's still the same! You just can't move the mobile around anymore but have to focus on the frame you wanna picture, otherwise the gimbal gets laggy and camera pic goes black! (Did wipe all cache and the app settings)
