  1. I find the idea that you have to have good matches with bad wrestlers to be good stupid.

  2. Goldberg was and will always be awesome: Goldberg: WCW World Heavyweight Champion *Click Here to Enlarge* Speaking of Goldberg, I got him and Stone Cold Steve Austin to start talking shit to each other today by tweeting out an old cover of Cracked magazine: "WWF vs WCW" - Cracked Magazine #334 [May 1999] *Click Here to Enlarge* Their response? If you told teenage me that I could use the computer fifteen years down the line to talk to my favorite wrestlers, I'd think you were nuts.

  7. Flash was a great comic for something like ten years straight. I like Wally more than most people but I'm more of a Dick Grayson fan. I kind of miss DC sometimes.

  8. TNA brings in Amy Dumas, sets her up as Wiseau's new girlfriend only to have her cheat on him with his best friend, Mark Mero. Tommy finds out and cries "You're tearing me apart, Lita!"

  13. If anything, I think Dean Malenko is underrated. He's never mentioned a lot in "Best of..." or "Favorite..." discussions. He should be, though!

  15. dDean was my man from when he came up to his WCW days. I think he's super underrated when it comes to introducing cruiser wrestling to the US. This is because he wrestled like Tully Blanchard or those dudes but against the aerialists. The only aerial move he did was the nasty stomach buster from the top rope, and that doesn't really count. He wrestled a style people who grew up on wrestling -- especially southern wrestling -- were used to seeing. I think a lot of that stuff would have been cast as a total novelty act if it wasn't for him making it look like aerial moves could beat a really high-end technical master. I don't think we have Eddie Guerrero: WWE Champion if it wasn't for his stuff with Dean. Also, I know it's a mark mag, but Dean was PWI's #1 in their Top 500 ranking at one point. Think about that -- the ultimate mark mag listing that dude as the best wrestler in the world. He was over.Also, how many bad wrestlers did Deano actually face? WCW was absolutely loaded with dudes during his run. He was at the end of his career in his WWE heyday but even then he was in a lot of good matches. He had a LOT of time in that awesome Raw 10 man and the match against Scotty Taylor was so friggin' great, too. I know everyone hates on what the Eddie/Dean in ECW stuff spawned but at the time it was mindblowing and everyone who was in some form of the IWC called those matches the new Steamboat/Flair. They might not last the test of time but in an era of when we were suffering through Isaac Yankem or Hulk Hogan's crapfest in WCW, those matches were amazing and really changed the game. Dean ruled.

  21. Canaan is headed to the D-League. Rockets like to send their rookies there anyway; also, he's not getting any playing time barring an injury to Lin or Beverley. Harden can play PG if necessary, so it's likely a three guard rotation between Lin/Bev/Beard. Brooks may or may not make the team; while he can score in a hurry off the bench, he is an absolute defensive liability. If Canaan can show some instant offense and not crater too horrifically on defense, he'll probably take Brooks's spot on the team. And then spend the season down in the D-League.

  22. Well here are some players who have their numbers retired... Rolando Blackman Michael Jordan...in Miami Buck Williams...he may have told them to retire his number, and you don't say no to Buck Williams Dan Majerle Tom Chambers Vlade Divac Jeff Hornacek Mark Eaton Larry Nance Don't get me wrong, he is being an idiot, but are trying to tell me that Dwight wasn't better in Orlando than anyone on that list. And Eaton is the best center in the history of the Jazz and in the top three all time in blocks too. . .

  24. i think this nails it right on the head. Without Deano bridging the gap, WCW's burgeoning cruiserweight division would've been DOA. Perhaps this is why WWE was never successful with their own division. you had "real wrestling" and then you had "flippy wrestling". Dean wrested the "real" style in the "flippy" world, which made it work. I always thought the big problem with the WWE's cruiser division was that, much like their women's division and at various times the tag division, nobody existed within the division except a champion and a top contender. Taka vs. Brian Christopher....then the next month BC stops being on tv and it's Taka vs. Scott Taylor...then the next month Scott Taylor joins Christopher in the "where are they now" file and someone else shows up to fight Taka. The division failed because there was no division. In WCW you had a whole group of guys fighting and having matches away from the belt. It made it seem like the belt was something worth fighting for and not just a merry-go-round of random challengers.

  26. Two of my best friends back home in Jersey, Bobby and Erin, who've been together forever and got married a few years back, just had their first child two weeks back.. She's an adorable little thing named Cassidy. She was premature, and just got home from the hospital. Bobby had her room waiting for her.

  30. just started reading New Teen Titans again. i'm up to 1980-81 on my Batman project, so it felt like a good time to give this a go. MY GOD. so much collectively happens in the first 10 issues or so it is amazing. All the characters (even the new ones) are amazingly fleshed out. You can tell their emotions, motivations, personalities, everything. There's been more character development in these 10 issues than the last 10 years (1970-1980) of Batman comics, and this has been the best decade for that in the Bat universe. amazing. edited to add: this also makes me miss Donna Troy more than ever. Flash/Wally not so much, but he hasn't had too much of a presence yet in NTT. i'm sure that will change before too long.

  32. Harlem Heat theme wasn't even a WCW creation, it was part of one of those licensed music packages that TV stations buy. It was always really distracting hearing it pop up in random places, like hotel menu screens or a Kids in the Hall sketch.

  34. It's funny because the NXT arena looks much better than that IRL. It's all out of proportion there, looks pretty bad. ETA: I was going to joke that it would be funny if you could customize the NXT area to be the old TNA arena, but then I started noticing all the similarities between the two and wondered if the entire thing was one long rib by WWE.

  35. God, I am in love with you right now. I hate that movie too. The message to me seems to be "Be dumb. Be simple. Dumb = Honest. Everything will just happen! You don't need to understand or know anything about who or what is running your world! Book learning is for witches." It's like if the Aliens from THEY LIVE! got together with the Tea Party leadership to write a movie...complete with SUPER EVIL HIPPIES!!!!! that look like something out of an anti-reefer film real made by the Missouri State Highway Patrol in 1975 and still being shown to teenagers in traffic school in 1988 (let's just say I know this somehow).

  36. THIS. For anyone thinking about buying TNA they have to decide if the name, history and contracts, those that would transfer since I'm guessing if Sting's deal is being partly paid by Spike than it might not be part of any deal and who knows about Hogan's deal or any of the other bigger names, are worth what you're going to pay or if you are that interested in having a wrestling company would it be better to start from scratch now or buy a smaller fed and build it up or wait until TNA folds and buy up some of their talent. I think that TNA has so much stink on it that you would have to do a lot of work to make it a company that has a chance at growing.

  37. I would love a Greatest Rivalries: Austin vs. The Hart Foundation. Especially if it included all of Austin's matches against Bret, Owen, the tag with HBK against Bulldog/Owen, and the Canadian Stampede. That would easily be my desert island wrestling disc having my favorite angle, feud, matches, and wrestler. It was nice to get a Randy Savage collection but no documentary was a bummer. I'd also like to get more familiar with the work and stories of Harley Race, Nick Bockwinkel, and Andre.
