  1. As an amusing anecdote, Mr. Nick Bockwinkel will walk into the general lockerroom, even if he has his own dressing room, and not only shake everyone's hand, he introduces himself to each and every individual and asks their (often) gobsmacked names. The man is a super class act, and defines not only the honorific of "world champion" but he IS his gimmick. I have seen him treat the lowliest of indy scum workers (myself included) as you would think he would treat a seasoned veteran of ring and road. honored, RAF

  2. Abeyance! Someone got a new word of the day desk calendar. Gonna be so many new hobos wandering the streets after next Monday: - D-Brine, the smelly little shrimp. - Zig Zag, zigging and zagging through traffic to get to cars to wash their windshields with his pink rags. - Coffee Can Kingston just standing on the corner shaking his coffee can for spare change. - "Unhappy Cause He's Nappy" D-Young - "Will Trade Redemption Points For A Hot Meal" Titus O'Neil - Zack Ryder

  3. This could easily go in the sports forum but I think it belongs here instead. Thanks to the magic of Ebay, and a good friend looking out for me, I have acquired the actual game jersey that my brother-in-law wore for his brief time with the Durham Bulls (yes, the team from the movie) in 1990. Players don't usually get to keep their stuff so to have this back in our family 23 years later is just awesome!

  4. By far the best race photo I've ever been in. My first marathon win also, which certainly endears the picture to me further.

  5. This was the first RAW that I have watched since god knows when and the thing I noticed the most was the lack of Jim Ross and how there was weird silent seconds of non commentary. Which seems strange with a 3 man booth nonetheless. How long has JR been gone? What's the deal with Dolph Ziggler? I think I know his face from one the Spirit Squad kids but can't name him at all, he's cool though, looks like an 80's guy all orange with bleached blond hair and bumps like a motherfucker. Dean Ambrose, on the other hand did, nothing for me. Kinda weird having a face lose a title match on the PPV and then have a non-title rematch the day after and giving him the win. BTW double arm suplex from the 2nd rope? Wow. Ron Killings I know, Fandango too because The Natural kept posting gifs of him in the various Pictures Threads and I had to investigate the hype. And the song oh my god the song. Him and the girl can't dance for shit though, so when they turn face I guess they'll have dance lessons? Dusty's so slim!, good for him. lol fuckers "WHATing" Dusty, man fuck everything. See, big ass segments with wrestling acting aka bad acting is definitely not my thing, but eh fuck it it was alright I guess. The best thing about this was that getting punched by Big Show is being sold like being elbowed by Misawa and kicked by Kawada at the same time. Dusty was dead. So many divas?! And they're not all blonde white girls! Holy McMahon! Actually none of them are blond apart from the chick commentating. AJ is the only one I know, again because of pictures and gifs and The Natural, she was awesome at the booth. The match was short but way better than I expected. Cool. I LOVE Sandow, he looks so evil and I loved that video of him going to SD Comic-Con (again I thank The Natural). This match was pretty bad though . Apparently Sandow is Mr. Money in the Bank so why is he losing meaningless matches against RVD? BTW why does RVD have his own personal hispanic announcer? LOL Apex Predator. Who the fuck comes up with these names? Randy gets a pretty meh reaction considering he's the top heel. I like Miz though, I briefly remember watching back in 06 or something, cool kid. His parents are glorious. Crazy psycho Randy is the best Randy though, but again the crowd response was lukewarm at best. Scratch that, Heyman is the top heel. Holy shit Ryback can't talk for shit, the only thing I know about this guy is that FSW loves him and everyone else not so much. Heyman made this, the kiss was funny yet bizarre. Ugh bullfighting gimmick. Man I hate bullfighting, that shit is still legal over here and I fucking hate it. Thankfully killing bulls in the arena was ruled illegal awhile ago, still sucks and fuck everything about it. Tag match was good, I'm kinda unsure who was heel and face though. Only guys I knew were GIANT BERNARDO and Claudio, but I'm gonna go on a limb and say the Samoans are Anoa'I kids. Claudio's giant swing makes everymatch 5 stars. Who's that survivalist looking guy? He kinda looks like Dutch Mantell. Bayou looking dude was fun. Who's this? Is reigns an Anoa'I kid too? Dudes looks kinda samoan. Unless they're having Danielson doing dark matches I'll love everything he's in, the crowd popping huge for him makes me super happy. Man, 5 or 6 years apart from wrestling and I'm already kinda bored with Orton and I was never a big Randy hater. A little more interference during the match from Tyler Black and Ambrose would have been cool, btw where's Jimmy Jacobs?, seems like he's the only ROH guy that was not invited to the E party. Black still bumps like bonkers, jesus h. christ. The faces' run-in, Dragon's celebration on the dude's shoulders and all the YES! chants almost brought a tear to my eye. IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMMIT! This post is longer that Lex Steele, I'm sorry.

  6. NXT pops up on Hulu sometimes on Wednesday night/Thursday morning.As of now, here is a list of the main people on the roster. BO DALLAS -- Bo's the current NXT Champion. He's a long-haired goof. They originally cast him as a Cena-like hero for all. However, everyone crapped on him because he was so terrible. They just tweaked him where he's essentially the same persona, but with a tinge of sanctimony and self-obsession, and he's now this really good heel.SAMI ZAYN -- Sami's formerly known as El Generico. He's a very nice person who is into pop-punk and ska. That's his gimmick. He's a good person. He's really courteous (and a bit flirtations) with Renee Young, who does backstage interviews on both Raw and NXT. Sami recently had a killer series of matches with the We The People group. His match with Cesaro got legit Match Of The Year hype (not as good as the SummerSlam matches but still REALLY good) and his match with Jack Swagger was great as well. He's currently stepping up against Bo Dallas. Bo claims to be Sami's "mentor" and is totally delusional about their relationship. ADRIAN NEVILLE/COREY GRAVES -- Neville was previously known as Pac. They're a forced tag team that currently have the belts. I kind of hate them both. Neville has a lot of great moves but is sort of a snooze. Corey Graves is a punk rock type who is a total snooze.THE ASCENSION -- Rik VIctor and Conor O'Brien. They have some vague, undefined supernatural gimmick. They have some big power moves but are largely UGH.TYLER BREEZE -- A fashion model character who takes selfie pictures of himself on his cell phone non-stop. He's awesome. AIDEN ENGLISH -- NXT jobber who just started getting a push. The only real artiste in professional wrestling who sings showtunes on his way to the ring. CJ PARKER -- Goofy 60s relic hippie. XAVIER WOODS -- 90s obsessed black dude who is also getting a PhD and has two master's degrees. Sort of a really confusing character. LEO KRUGER -- South African hunter of men. He wrestles really well as his character. THE LEGIONAIIRES -- Sylvester LaFort is their manager. He's a scumbag French guy obsessed with MAKING ZE MONEY. His first charge is Scott Dawson, a redneck trailer trash guy. The latest addition to his stable is Alexander Rusev, aka The Bulgarian Beast. Rusev is on his path to being awesome.PAIGE -- Current NXT Diva's champ. She's "The Anti-Diva." She's pale-skinned with dark hair and a bunch of piercings. She's fierce and rough and a total star on the rise. EMMA -- Goofy Australian who is beyond over with the crowd because of her amazingly dumb dancing. She's also pretty good in the ring, too. Really fun character. BAILEY -- Nerdy, awe-struck diva who has an offense based around hugging her opponents. Very funny character. CHARLOTTE -- Ric Flair's hyper-athletic daughter. SUMMER RAE -- She's Fandango's dance partner. She's a total mean girl. SASHA BANKS -- Newly turned heel diva noted for her terrible acting. There's also some NXT alumni you should familiarize yourself with:THE WYATT FAMILY -- These are the bayou looking dudes who showed up on Raw. They're led by Bray Wyatt, who is a backwoods cult leader who has hinted that he is the Messiah and we have entered into the end of days. His flunkies are Luke Harper (the dude with the black beard who is awesome) and Erik Rowan (the dude in the sheep mask who is still pretty raw). They just got the big promotion to Raw a few weeks before SummerSlam. Until then, they just wreaked havoc and chaos throughout the promotion. Bray's one of the best promo guys in wrestling right now. They're my favorite stable. BIG E. LANGSTON -- He was last scene on the main roster as AJ's best friend/enforcer. He was a face in NXT known for making refs count to 5 after his finish. He has a really interesting, unique charisma and sense of humor.

  10. It will be interesting to read Dave's first-hand comments instead of his second-hand reinterpreting what Carlos or Dr Lucha or Kris sent him. Meltzer's comment on Sombra/Volador Jr's spotfest was stupid. He's seen insane spotfest just on Dragon Gate and various indy shows and raved about them, yet this one didn't suit what he likes in wrestling. His rant on these guys doing spotfests and possibly getting hurt makes Dave sound like fucking Zbyszko nowadays. Injuries can happen with anyone at anytime. Look at La Sombra, he's done crazier spots (that dormilona into a somersault plancha on Tama Tonga) and doesn't get hurt, but he jumps over stupid Taichi and sprains his ankle. Didn't Orton break his arm or something punching the mat in the past? I thought he was way off on Blue Panther (spending more time pointing out he's old) and he doesn't get Rush. Also, by the way, that one guy who sent feedback and said Blue Panther looked old and looked like his grandpa...FUCK YOU...You wish your grandpa could tap young motherfuckers out with the nudo lagunero & teach you the proper way of maintaining your lazy ass in shape. See now y'all made me angry...I'm gonna go watch TV...

  15. For the stat people, Richardson was fifth in RB elusiveness last year and leads the league this year in elusiveness according to Pro Football Focus. I know, shocking that teams stacked the line and committed to stopping Richardson and let Brandon Weeden attempt to beat them. Playing with a respected quarterback will do wonders for him, and I think he has a Shaun Alexander type of career for the Colts.

My girlfriend, who has never seen a GTA game before, has been watching me play and often chides me for being so boring. So I end up saying things like "I will go kill those guys when this goddamn Bob Seger song is over" a lot more than I ever thought I would.

  25. I'm late to the party here but I wanted to echo the praise Roman Reigns is getting this week. He looked fantastic and it wasn't all just Bryan doing magic tricks. His moves looked great, his trash talk was top-notch and, yeah, he killed Kofi on the way out. Bryan has been amazing but I hope the Shield continue to get some sugar too because they've been a HUGE part of Bryan's ascent as of late. Oh, and might I add, Heyman and Dusty should have jobs waiting for them at the WWE "Sports Entertainment University" teaching promo 101. They were both awesome for different spectacular reasons. I am sorta fat and sorta ugly but I own my house and have had some sex.

  38. Hercules was the slave, people. The Mexican not the black guy. Virgil was a bodyguard that dressed like wrapping paper and was also an incompetent buffoon and DiBiase treated him accordingly. Meng and Bubba Rogers were also bodyguards. They dressed like professionals and did their jobs well and got along delightfully with their employers as a result.

  41. The fact that you understood what I intended, even though American Football is not international, sort of makes my point. MLB, not Baseball in general, but MLB Specifically has this huge development path, but you rarely hear about the colleges or the minor league grooming that players have received. You will here nationalities, and occasionally if its a local player coming home even if hes on the opposing team, you will hear about it. But NFL broadcasts ALWAYS talk about "such and such player from This here school" Which is what I meant when I said the WWE should treat the guys they are getting from the Indy's like the NFL treats is players, talk about how they came up, what they managed to accomplish. It would make the Wrestling World seem bigger, and make making it to the WWE a bigger deal to those who might not be aware of anything outside that bubble.
