So many things are not my job

In the wake of Bill O’Brien’s now famous utterance of “It’s not my job” (and make no mistake about it, this will never leave him, it will always be part of his resume, quite possibly the first thing we think of when we refer to him) I’ve put together a list of jobs people don’t have.

Serena Williams: It’s not my job to not totally lose my mind and create a non-gender issue into one

Baltimore Orioles: It’s not my job to not suck as badly as any team ever.

Nathan Peterman: It’s not my job to be able to play well to last more than a half in a football game

Cleveland Browns: It’s not our job to win the turnover battle by 5 and win the football game.

Cam Newton: It’s not my job to listen to females talkin’ ‘bout routes

Matt Ryan: It’s not my job to throw a touchdown pass to Julio Jones

Jamie Lannister: It’s not my job to not smash my sister

Urban Meyer: It’s not my job to be a decent human being

Nick Saban: (See Urban Meyer)

Ed Orgeron: It’s not my job to speak English

Tom Herman: It’s not my job to beat mediocre programs like Maryland

Alex Bregman: It’s not my job to make an out

Raheel Ramzanali: It’s not my job to dress like a heterosexual male

Del Olaleye: It’s not my job to like people

Joel Blank: It’s not my job to like AJ Hoffman

AJ Hoffman: It’s not my job to keep any thought I have about anyone to myself

John Granato: It’s not my job to stay sober

Another week has come and gone in the world of wrestling and there was a lot of changes and waves made this week.

In Raw, Braun Stroman was stripped of his title match for making a rather formidable display of strength by flipping a limousine over onto its side. It was incredibly impressive, even as a bit as Braun has been recovering from elbow surgery and this sort of proves physically he is back and that is bad news for whomever gets in front of him. Rising out of the ashes of that now dead match was a fatal four way where the haircut-needing walking myth himself John Cena passed the torch to one Finn Balor, the first ever WWE Universal Champion who relinquished his title due to injury. The intercontinental title passing to Bobby Lashley was an odd turn considering all three men - Lashley, Rollins and Ambrose - involved in that match now have held the title in the last month. There were still some corny bits, some scripted almost nudity from still injured Alexa Bliss resulting in the best eye roll in history from Renee Young, but they were balanced by the announcement of a women's tag team division, finally.

On Smackdown, the ship keeps feeling like it's listing, like the show is moving in the wrong direction somehow. The opening with Becky Lynch was amazing, the building of her character into this massive star has been incredible and more of this is what Smackdown needs. She opened her match with a massive throat punch that shows a kind of cocky dominance Smackdown as a whole is lacking, a feeling that some of these guys are truly legendary badasses. The Mandy Rose wants to ruin a marriage storyline continues for some reason and yet again Naomi and Mandy came to blows with no resolution. When will it end? The show overall was flat but it did end with a Shane McMahon coast to coast, leaping cake in the face on Shamus.

The WWE has started the process of introducing some new talent, with Nicki Cross involved in a three on three women's tag team match on Raw and with Heavy Machinery -a tag team- playing comic relief and Lacey Evans standing around sipping tea, not an exaggeration at all. Hopefully these three can do more than reorganize the deck chairs on what is starting to feel like The USS Smackdown post iceberg, but only time will tell.
