The jawbreaker is one of my favourite sleeper hold counters, if it’s sold well. That’s pretty much a guarantee when the guy you’re putting the hold on is wearing a metal helmet. Relatedly, the sound effect of Dos spitting out his tooth is my favourite joke on this page. Naturally, it wasn’t part of the script and was added in on the spot while I was drawing. The robot teeth joke was part of the script, and was one of the lines I carried over from the first version of this match (which was much, much longer).

In other news, I’m thinking about designing some HEAT t-shirts or something else merchandise-y. Not really sure what would sell reasonably well, though.

On Saturday: Hot tag? More like lukewarm.
