  1. Mistico's is just an epic horror story. They hyped him perfectly, acknowledging where he came from and making him seem like a future main event player. Then once they turned those stupid fucking lights on for his matches it all went to hell. I feel like there will be whole shoot videos of people who witnessed the whole mess first hand, telling the horrible tale from their perspective like a Wrestling Rashomon. And the host of those shoot videos will ask every guest how big Mistico's dong is.

  2. I've been in both rings, and this is 100% true. I had been in hundreds of indy rings of various quality, but when I worked in an old WCW ring I was blown away by how short the ropes were, and it threw me off just running ropes and stuff. Also, WCW rings (and from what I see on television, most lucha rings) have cable ropes - where the rope is a steel cable run thru a garden-hose type of cover. WWE rings use a regular rope with a latex/acrylic type of coating. The difference in tension between the two is immense. Cables are much tighter, and have a spring-like quality, while ropes have a lot more elasticity and "wobble" more. Another difference is that WWE rings are 20x20... and most other rings are not. WCW rings were 18x18, I believe ECW were 16x16. Most indy rings are 16x16... although I have worked in 14x14 many times, as well as some rings that had ridiculously tall/short aprons.

  8. 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

  13. Sabin could be mildly entertaining if they had him get all egotistical and Al Bundy-esque. He has to take up a job as a shoe salesman to make ends meet and Velvet Sky ends up really Peggy Bundyish. "Yup, I was world champion once, they all chanted Hail Sabin back then."

  19. Mistico's is the bigger disaster. But Ultimo's was more disappointing for me as a fan because I love him, and there were some interesting dudes for him to wrestle with at the time. Mistico, I didn't really watch before hand other than a handful of match so I didn't have that emotional connection.

  26. 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.

  38. THAT was an epic three hour block of wrestling right there. Super tight and 90% of everything ties into the bigger picture angle. They're on fire right now. Great start to the show that sends the next part of the case into action. I love HHH dropping general counsel words like "abeyance." I loved that the angle got explained but not spelled out -- trusting the audience to understand that HHH ordered Scott to do a fast count in case Bryan was going to win, then have Scott throw Bryan under the bus. And then HHH had to fire Scott to cover his tracks but gives him a generous severance package. That is straight-up Enron sleaze right there when a boss makes an underling participate in a crime and then fires him but pays him hush money on the way out the door. I'm surprised we didn't get a segment on the app where Brad Maddox had Armstrong sign non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements. I also loved Steph and HHH "remotivating" Orton, too. Dolph/Dean was so friggin' good. The crowd was super hot for Ziggler. I loved the little explanation of Dolph's losing streak -- HHH got into his head. Dolph gets a huge win to get the monkey off his back and expose the first chink in The Shield's armor. The Dusty segment was on the short list of my favorite segments of all-time. It was PERFECT. Dusty went Hard Times on us, talked up the importance of family, and wasn't going to take any crap from Steph. Steph is absolutely incredible right now as the corporate HR monster from hell. I loved the Sophie's Choice and Dusty attempting to walk away when he got trapped. Steph making Show do her bidding was brilliant. Dusty wants to do what's best for his family and wants to walk away. Show wants to do what's best for his family and that's get paid since he's broke because of his poor financial planning. He does. But the ultimate benefactor, of course, is the McMahon family -- the rich get richer. Miz/Orton was a spirited brawl that became absolutely grotesque brutality. Steph/HHH's plot worked as Randy Orton reverted to previous form and tried to end the career of a man in front of his parents in his hometown. Put dickery. Heyman's wheelchair gloating was THE best "I told you so" segment I can ever remember. Ryback "hating bullies" is great hypocrisy. He's such an awesome meathead. Heyman kissing Ryback on the cheek was the ultimate in pathetic heel trolling. I didn't think there would be a segment better than Dusty's tonight. There wasn't but, damn it, Heyman tried his absolute best to steal the show. Again. That triple threat tag match was a really fun sprint. The Tensai suplex spot was ridiculous. I loved that Cesaro's swing is now a teaser to buy the app. Great end sequence. Usos vs. Real Americans is just quality between a bunch of really good workers. And that main event -- man oh man oh man. That match is one of my favorite matches all year. It will probably get slept on when we look back at the best spots but we saw Roman Reigns emerge as a guy who can go on his own and not just in tags. I mean, Bryan's at Flair/Eddie levels now of making EVERYONE look good but Reigns is a beast. He's going to be the Batista of this angle. So many great spots. I love all the trash talk.Then that end. Enough is enough. It's time for a change. YES! YES! YES!Fandango/R-Truth was mindless fun that I mostly checked e-mail during. The divas didn't advance anything except to further prove AJ rules. I walked my dog during Sandow/RVD -- I don't mind either of those guys but I didn't give her much of a walk tonight.
