    SDL Es La Sombra de Rey Mysterio - 1/15/2019

    Rey/Almas was good, but holy fuck I hate that Canadian Destroyer spot they are doing. It just totally kills whatever suspension of disbelief I have. There is nothing for Rey to build momentum from to make that work. Like, I hate Canadian Destroyers in general, but that one is way less plausible than even a normal one. Beyond that, good match. This Mandy/Jimmy/Naomi angle is just the fucking worst.

    SDL Es La Sombra de Rey Mysterio - 1/15/2019

    Loved the star with Becky drinking Heavy Machinery's concoction. Becky/Peyton started off fine, then for some reason they had a longer and far more competitive match than necessary. Asuka murdering Billie shortly afterward was nice. I enjoyed the Mandy/Naomi brawl and hope they get a decent stip match in the future. Mystertio/Almas was awesome and easily MOTY so far for me. Glad Almas finally got a bit singles victory.
  4. . Alas, the theory was wrong. Kisenosato retires effective immediately. There will be a huge celebration later in 2019, probably in the Ryōgoku Kokugikan. His career achievement shouldn't be marred by his unlucky tenure at Sumo's highest rank. He was able to shake up the Mongolian dominance for a bit. He had an incredibly succesful Ozeki run. As a new Yokozuna, he won his second career Yusho with what turned out to be a career-ending injury and basically one arm. He constantly pushed the top rankers and seemed always in hot pursuit as an Ozeki. He even sports a good record against Hakuho, who is easily the best Rikishi of all time. 16 wins, all of them won against Hakuho at his peak. It will be interesting to see what this will mean in regards to the newly resurging popularity of the sport. To many, Kisenosato seemed to be the hometown hero to bring back some of the glory to a sport that had been dominated by foreigners and scandals over the last 10-15 years. There are promising Japanese talents this time around at least. Kisenosato will stay in Sumo as a stablemaster. Maybe he will have a hand in grooming a future Ozeki or Yokozuna?
  5. They did not really have many options beyond Jarrett. A lot of the roster was very young and could not really be the face of the company. I think giving the title to AJ Styles in 03 was a mistake. I think the one time he should have dropped it was to Raven in 03. That was the biggest buyrate the weekly PPVs ever got. If they had done a strong finish with Raven winning, would have changed the companies future. Once Sting and Kurt Angle arrived, Jarrett was never near the World title again.

    Double J had a lot of great moments and stretches in TNA. The problem is that only accounts for maybe 25% of his time there.

    I think the weight lifting angle and actually hurting Animal did a lot for them. If they had actually done those scaffold matches, I think would have been literally crushed. I know Dusty really wanted to make the 88 Bashes a success, but surely they could have done anything else. I know the Midnites and Fantastics ended up doing them, which makes more sense. The PoP were the only time a Road Warriors power vs power feud worked. Minus maybe the Disasters feud. I don't think the Russians feuded with them long. Sorry I am way off topic.

    A lot of what you guys are saying about Baltimore sounds like Detroit. There's a very nice, totally revitalized downtown stadium district with fantastic restaurants, bars, (obviously) the stadiums and arena, hotels, casinos, etc. Go one block too far and it's crumbling, dirty, and quite possibly dangerous. Go a few more blocks, and it's either scary as fuck or looks bombed out, depending on which way you went.

    I feel like the Express were already incredibly over. PoP did leave before they got crushed, so it might be true for them. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the Road Warriors, they were over as fuck and drew money. I just don't think they ever really helped anyone else out much, at least on screen.

    As an unabashed Finn Balor mark, I dug all this show. Hell, even bought into Cena at the end when he said there was one more person who believed in Finn. This is the kind of stuff, on the other hand, that can drive you insane about this company. In two nights(figuring in the surprise appearance at UK Takeover), they managed to make Finn look like more of a star then they have in months. They have the ability to do this kind of stuff anytime they want, but seem to focus more on silly shit that just shine a light on the weaknesses of the talent. I know in my heart it will all end with BROCK SMASH, but at least for now I'm just going to enjoy seeing my boy get the spotlight

    2019 Q1 TV GENERAL DISCUSSION

    I've been on a UK Comedy kick after falling in love with Derry Girls. I was tipped off to two great ones. PEOPLE JUST DO NOTHING. This is a mockumentary about a crew of idiots who live in a Brentford housing estate and have a pirate radio show dedicated to garage, an outdated form of dance music. It's really brilliant in just the low-level sleaze of some of the characters that is combined with the fake tough-guy routines of a few others. I have never been to England. But I did hang out with some dipshits when I was in high school and in college and they are so true to these characters. Apparently, it's based off of a documentary about the pirate radio community of British public housing. They're also making a US version here based off of the shenanigans of Vegas EDM idiots. A+. Netflix. THIS COUNTRY. I am just starting this now. It won some major UK TV awards this year. It's another mockumentary. In this one, a camera crew follows along "typical young people" who are in a disaffected rural part of the country. It's a pair of cousins (played by real life siblings) who have nothing to do in a town with nothing going for it. The main woman lead thinks she's tough as hell and has compared her rivalry with another local tough to Kane vs. Undertaker and how they're both "The Brothers of Destruction." I am 1.5 episodes into this and it is also an A+. BORDERLINE. Another Office-style show, but this one is about the UK equivalent of TSA agents in a smaller area. Loved the first episode. My wife said it was the funniest episode of TV she has seen in years. I also heard great things about The Detectorists but it isn't on Netflix anymore.

    God, I hate when they do this. It almost always sounds stupid, with the exception of Rusev.

    Arn & Tully survived. They got in a ton of offense on Hawk too. Typical Dusty finish shit.
