    WWE2K19.

    I like the Towers mode. Did the IIconics/Absolution one earlier as Kairi Sane, and the final match was a bitch. I had been winning all of them with around 12 minutes to spare - the submission match with Paige was frustrating and in the end I had about 3 minutes left. Her legs were in the grey condition and it still took about 4 tries with Kairi’s submission finisher to get Paige to tap out. It was really fun, though. Career mode is fun this year, but I still hate constantly updating your moveset and stuff. I don’t even know if I’ll complete it, much like the previous years installments. I started a Universe mode - simmed to Survivor Series, got all the rosters and alignments synced to current day WWE, edited the card to reflect the actual card on Sunday... and had a banger of an opening match between AoP/The Bar. 5 stars, lasted at least 20 or 25 minutes. Started Nakamura/Rollins and then my power went out. I’ve been playing for like 6 hours at this point, so it’s probsbly time to get some sleep anyway. So far, the Towers mode alone makes this year’s version far superior to the previous years.

    2018 RING OF HONOR THREAD

    I think if Hangman stuck with Bucks/Kenny/Kota he'd end up the job guy, which is too good for him- so he prob should stay in ROH. (not seeing Chase joining the Elite in freelancing, def not seeing Yujiro)- and Marty's stuck for a few months no matter what.
  4. Today
  5. Predictions: Undisputed Era beat Dunne/Ricochet/War Raiders. Ciampa retains the NXT Championship versus Velveteen Dream. Gargano defeats Black. Baszler defends the NXT Women's Championship defeating Sane. Most difficult match to call.

    Impact Wrestling Spoilers for 11/15/18

    A return to form for Impact this week after an average few weeks, they seem to have a bit of focus again. Tessa / Taya is a great feud at the moment, I'm all in on Tessa, her match with Ray Lyn was really great. The overhead press spot was all kinds of awesome. Cage v Callihan was good, not great, but good. Think the feud is done and eye can move Sami onto something else. Bourne v Morrison was the same, just an enjoyable little match. Moose killed it in his segments. Moose fashion watch needs to be a thing. His orange shirt / braces / bow tie combo was a thing of beauty. Eddie being taken away by the orderlies better lead to a return of Dr Stevie! The Kross promo was super weird but in a good way. I don't know if they went "well he's from Vegas so might get cheered so we can muddy the waters for a few weeks" but it totally worked, you wouldn't trust Kross, Morrison clearly doesn't trust him and it's an interesting sideline to the World Title picture. The line about Morrison's dog had me worried though. Kross is 100% crazy enough to go full Bossman / Fuji. The Racalz promo was pretty out there but a great re-introduction to them. I also loved Ortiz and Santana in their promo, they are so likeable as faces, particularly Ortiz. I'd love to see them in the mix on SD tag scene with the Usos and New Day, seems like they would fit right in. Eli v Dreamer seems like a weird feud for Eli, I've had the feeling they want to redo Rock v Mankind with Eli and Abyss, certainly feels like the direction it's been going. Looking forward to next week. Especially the Turkey Bowl
  7. Shame Trevor has left, he was always enjoyable in Impact. Says a lot about his character that even when he was jobbed out he was still entertaining and putting on good matches. I noticed the Rascalz on this weeks show so will assume they will fill the Trevor Lee spot to an extent.

    I never thought I'd say this but props to Nick Gage for being calm and professional when Arquette shot on him in a panic. He put him down and pinned him and let him walk away. Maybe chokey DOES change a man?

    My brain is still trying to process what I just watched. Nick Gage, David Arquette, lighttubes, Arquette a bloody mess. It's like waking up after having the craziest dream and asking yourself if that really happened.

    That finish to Gage vs. Arquette, wow, I don't know. Looked like Arquette got cut on the neck, left the ring holding his neck, then kind of realized the match needed a finish... then went back in and some kind of scuffle happened, Gage pinned him, Arquette immediately got up and left. Lots of credit to Arquette for all the stuff he did with tubes leading up to that, though.

    NOVEMBER 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    Sunday I was putting on my socks and I notice the toe next to my big toe. It looks like there is a peanut growing on it. Upon closer inspection, the toe nail had grown back really thick. So thick, the nail clips could not get around it. I have had to cut around the edges and whittle it down.

    2018 INDIE WRESTLING THREAD

    According to Janela's twitter he did hurt his leg on the finish but it isn't serious. David Arquette's has indie wrestler level tatoos so he is getting there Arquette deserves a light tube shot given how awful that top attempt was. God bless him he is taking a ton of abuse and bleeding pretty badly It sure as hell looked like Arquette shot on Nick Gage in a complete panic from all the blood loss. He was ending this match any way possible. That was definitely something.
  20. I caught some of the LFA show tonight. For whatever reason, I'm not entirely sold on Sabina Mazo. She has some potential. She never really has a lull when she fights. However, she was in there with someone who was there to get mopped up inside the distance. She busted this random Brazilian chick up early, but never really got out of first gear. In addition, I don't think Mazo has a frame to fighting more athletic fighters who offer more than being a someone to get head kicked. The closest approximation body wise would be Irene Aldana, but Aldana has more power to her shots. Mazo has to kill you with activity if she isn't scoring highlight reel knockouts. I think the reason why she isn't in the UFC is because there is a strong possibility she might flame out fast. If the UFC does have some interest, it would probably be best to sit out on her and wait until the summer rolls around so she can be on the Tuesday Night Contender Series. She's only twenty one and now with Kings MMA, but I need some more concrete evidence that she is a real prospect.

    I'm legitimately scared for Marko Stunt everytime I see him wrestle. I think I saw him walking on his own through the crowd.

    Random Boxing Thoughts/News v. 6

    Saw two really impressive performance tonight. Now that Regis Prograis has graduated, Jaron Ennis with his dismantling of Raymond Serrano is now among the best of the class of ShoBox. His older brothers Farah and Pooh were classic Philly fighters, but they never really got past being the opponent. Jaron Ennis showed real, real potential. He clowned Serrano from both southpaw and orthodox and took him apart. Mo Hooker showed a ton of poise tonight in retaining his belt against Alex Saucedo. I picked Hooker to win simply because how much stock can you put into Saucedo beating Lenny Z. Not only that, but having an all out war with him. Hooker is on a different and it started to showed after the first three rounds when Saucedo could no longer hold Hooker on the ropes. Hooker just started to break him down and that's something you're not going to get fighting a spent veteran like Saucedo has fought coming through the ranks like a Lenny Z. They teased Hooker vs. Ramirez in a title unification bout at 140. And it's going to be interesting because it asks if Top Rank really wants to let an outside fighter like Hooker beat another in house fighter let alone a top priority fighter like Jose Ramirez. Saucedo is good for being a local draw. Ramirez is not only a local draw but someone Top Rank is really investing in. Morever, Hooker is co promoted by Eddie Hearn who happened to be lurking around the ring after Hooker beat Saucedo in front of Saucedo's hometown. Does Top Rank let Hooker beat Saucedo and potentially upset Ramirez (who looked as vulnerable against Amir Imam) and then go to DAZN to do Hearn's bidding? That's a huge risk and never been Top Rank's M.O. Usually if Top Rank brings in someone to fight a Top Rank guy, they make sure it's someone who is gonna put over a Top Rank fighters. You have an exception like Isaac Dogboe who many picked to win going into enemy territory, but they also signed Dogboe when he beat the brakes off Jesse Magdaleno. They can't do that here with Hooker. Top Rank needs ratings so at some point they have to take a chance.

    MLB HOF 2019 Ballot

    Welp, let's break those 3 down a bit. Lance Berkman was one of the best hitters and players of the 2000-2009 decade. Like, full stop. In the decade he was 6th among all position players in both fWAR (Behind only Rodriguez, Pujols, Bonds, Jones, and Carlos Beltran. All 5 of so, to me, are easy HOF's, and he's just behind Jones and Beltran) and wRC+ (behind Bonds, Pujols, Ramirez, Rodriguez, and Jason Giambi, 4 of which are easy hall picks were as Giambi doesn't get there for me). That's pretty darn impressive. He also had 6 6 WAR seasons in 8 years. Which is... very very good. Also, a big stat for me in evaluating a player is I always give a big bonus if a guy has a career 400 OBP. Berkman hits that mark with a 406, the 10th highest career OBP in the last 50 years. He also by Baseball Reference Hall of Fame tracker shows Berkman as the 20th best Left Fielder in baseball ever, and there have been 20 Hall of Famers inducted into the Hall of Fame as Left Fielders. And he is the first name that appears after the solid list ahead of existing Hall of Famers. He's basically a solid bet for that borderline pick. He might get in, but he certainly deserves a deeper look then 1 ballot and out. Ian Kinsler is ranked by Baseball Reference as having the 18th best case for the Hall of all 2nd Basemen ever, but the 2nd Basemen list is weird. Bobby Grich not being in the Hall in spite of being one of the top 10 Second Basemen ever, Both Cano and Utley are top 11 and not eligible yet, Whitaker is 13th and should be in but isn't. The only other player ahead of Kinsler not in the Hall is Willie Randolph, who I do think should be in, and there's a bunch of okay guys that are in after that were not as good as Kinsler. As for why Kinsler should be considered, he just been consistently good to great for over a decade, plugging away, constantly above average. He's had had too few truely elite seasons to get in for me (Only one season over 6 WAR, 2011 with 7.2), but he's been a damn good player. As for Zobrist, his case is weird and hard to find much for historic match for. He's such a fun player to look at. Zobrist didn't make the bigs until 20056when he was 25, and going into 2009 when he was 28 he was worth negative WAR. And then he absolutely exploded. In 2009 Ben Zobrist was the best position player in baseball by fWAR, posting a 8.6, with a 152 wRC+ and playing big plus defense carrying over 6 positions. And while he hasn't reached that level since, he has been a damn good player, averaging 4.4 fWAR a season over his age 28-37 seasons. If he can he has a couple more 3-4 seasons in him, which I'm not expecting, but I wasn't expecting him to put up a 4 WAR season this last year either, he probably puts himself into the top 20 2nd basemen of all time, and he also gets the benefit of being the World Series MVP in the series the Cubs broke there streak. I don't think he gets in, but he is a fucking fascinating case if he finishes his career strong.

    MLB HOF 2019 Ballot

    From Dragon's list I'd say yes to Mauer, Cano, Utley, Edmonds, Lofton, Beltran, Jones, Sheffield, and Wagner as well as Mussina, Rolen, and Rivera who are no-brainers in my opinion. The only other that I'd consider is Posey but he probably needs another 5 years or so with at least three of them behind the plate still and above average production.
