  1. $5 wrestling and the Freight Train exploitation comedy is really one of the worst things

  4. Nothing is more markish than "workers" having some unwritten code of how to act like a "real worker" and sitting around judging whether someone is conforming to it or not. Except, maybe injecting who knows what into your body so your pecs pop better when the lights hit you because otherwise some 70 year old perv won't notice you and tell his daughter and her husband what a fucking stud you are. Fucking marks, man. BURN IT TO THE GROUND, AJ....OLD MEN, ROID JUNKIES, AND MARKS!!!! BURN BURN BURN!!!!!!

  5. It's about the context of the story, not whether it's realistic or logical. If two wrestler's decide to tell me a story about one guy trying to break another guy's leg throughout the match and the guy with the nearly broken leg starts doing springboard dropkicks with no ill effects, that takes me out of the story. It doesn't have to be like a real life fight, it just has to have a continuity to what they're trying to tell. I've seen several matches where a guy gets his arm worked on and his finish is a lariat. And that guy tries to use that arm for the lariat and it fails him. And the smarter guys(from a character standpoint) decide to switch arms. It's a cool bit of psychology, that makes a match that much more engaging. It's not about being more realistic, it's more about the creating a story that connects with the audience through context.. You can do that with any style of match. There was a HUSTLE match in which a guy was shooting lasers. Psychology in that match was brilliant.

  6. I measure my age in Cusacks. I've always been two or three years younger than whatever age John Cusack is playing at any given moment. (He always plays a few years younger than he is, since he's actually 40 fucking 7 now!). Which worked out, because I would then see his movies on video a year or so after they came out and we would match up prefectly and he could be my template for what the next part of my life was supposed to represent. It worked out marvelously. So, when he was playing a nerdy freshman in SIXTEEN CANDLES, I was in Jr. High. When he was playing a directionless 20-year-old in SAY ANYTHING, I was a senior in High School. When he was getting ready to deal with his 10 year high school reunion in GROSSE POINTE BLANK I was just a couple of years shy of my 10 year reunion, too. By the time I saw HIGH FIDELITY, I, too, was in my early surly thirties. And when he looked back at it all with regret as a 40 year old in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE, I was 39. (and by the time I saw that on cable I was there). The one that hurts is GROSSE POINTE BLANK. I saw it in like 1999 when I was right there...one year to my 10 year reunion. I seriously related to that movie...it really hit...then the next time I saw it was in, like 2008 and I wasn't sure how I was supposed to react to it. Martin Blank was still 28. He was still headed to his ten year reunion. And here I was coming up on my 20th and pushing 40. I wanted to relate to the movie the same way I had...and I could remember those feelings. But that moment, and all it represents was gone. That whole thing about clearing out the mess of your twenties and starting over as an actual adult...I'd been through it and past it. I so wanted to be Martin Blank again...not whatever the guy's name was in HOT TUB TIME MACHINE. Close enough to 20 to still be able to horse around in your old girlfriend's parent's house one last time and be quoting The Specials and expect the people around you to remember something about their life when they hear it. But close enough to 30 that you don't feel threatened by anything back there in that past and are, in the end, heading off in a completely new direction that will end up defining your life more than any of that previous decade will. But, shit, now I've crossed two years into the 40s and Cusack is a fucking mess now and I don't know who I'm supposed to check in with on Starz anymore. I feel more Paul Giamatti than John Cusack right now and that's not the place to be. Fucking Giamatti.

  15. A Torneo Ci-Bear-netico??? Sorry, I'll show myself out. I think with Cesaro's giant swing from last week we might see a return of spinny moves on the indies. Davey Richards will probably do a 17 minute 38000 revolution Airplane Spin.

  29. It's much less tacky than it could be. Oh, and the short answer is that everyone in wrestling is a mark with the sole exception of Kevin Nash, and even he can be bought with a well-cut sports jacket.

  30. This thread and people talking about which NFL guys they went to High School with prompted me to downloard a copy of my senior yearbook. I don't have one because I didn't actually buy one. It was really weird. I remember almost no one...like maybe five guys. I appear in the book once. Under my picture where they put little blurbs about each person it says "Attended for four years." In the back of the book it talks about Tiananmen Square and New Kids on the Block. The pictures look ancient. Like, if you told me this was my dad's yearbook from 1960 I would belive you. Here is a picture of one of our computer classes: That's an Aplle IIe. I'd also forgotten how religious the place was. I guess I just tuned that all out. This is the very first page: Like how many priests were shuffling around that place? And then there was this dude. I can't take credit for being him or remembering who he was. But he has a floppy disc in his hand and those huge Kent Tekulve glasses...and I'd like to think a poster of "The Killing Joke" in his locker:

  37. I love how boxing always manages to find a way to make people shake their heads by the end of the night. As an aside, with everyone writing Alvarez instead of Canelo, I keep picturing Floyd beating the shit out of Bryan Alvarez.

  38. Thank you. CJ Ross who scored Mayweather Jr. vs. Canelo a draw, was one of the two judges who scored Bradley vs. Pacquiao last year for Bradley. I remember watching that fight live and couldn't believe that verdict.

  42. are ramblings of a mad man. You're right, fast action hack n slash games where you have to click on the screen to move is clearly a brilliant design decision Never let it be said that I'm afraid to express a minority opinion, that's for sure. And thanks for the love, bro. Right back at ya.

  43. When The Miz turns heel he needs to bring back the old Stunning Steve Stun Gun as his finish. It's a slick, out-of-nowhere finish for a midcard heel. Much better than that facebuster he used to do.

  44. I like how they're now incorporating NXT stuff into the big picture angle. It also looks like Dusty's going to be somehow involved on Raw that will lead to his ouster as NXT Commissioner. I think JBL was born to play evil corporate overlord. He kind of actually is one. I also like JBL siding with Bo Dallas -- maybe the whole "He'd be perfect as the young face of the Corporation" idea has actually been flown up a flagpole. That dude would be a great heel with his current gimmick. His dumb grin, awful Steve Martin with a vest suits and non-stop shilling of his popularity would be terrific since he's such a dumbass. I also think his iffy execution (his finisher is terrible) helps him because absolutely no one respects him. I also love the idea that Sami Zayn is NXT's Daniel Bryan as the uncrowned champion beloved by all. He's actually a really great person to do the "individual trapped in corporate America" story. He's terrific in the ring but not in the WWE's typical way. He also doesn't fit into their platonic ideal as a body type. He's also a really nice guy who has decent taste in music. He's the exact type of person who gets screwed over when it comes to getting a promotion at work.

  45. When I was twelve I tried to make a Macho Man Randy Savage costume. My guess is it looked like shit. But it was a lot of fun making it. I hunted down some big ugly red belt with a giant buckle. I cut a tee shirts sleeves up and frayed the bottom. Found a cowboy hat and tied pieces of cut up shirt around it. Then painted on a beard. I was recognized as the Macho Man once and Hank Williams .Jr twice.

  47. Championships are acknowledgements of a person's effort. If someone received an employee of the month and got the perks that went with it, I bet they'd be just as overjoyed as she is. Half the people on this board would kill for having the recognition of being a fictional champion in a wrestling promotion. Oh good grief, you are misguided with that thought process. You think effort is rewarded with championships...in other words, the hardest workers get the titles? Not even close.
