  1. So I was in Potbelly's (sandwich shop) and I sat down next to a WWE the Magazine. I was browsing it a little and then the owner came over and grabbed his stuff from the area I was sitting. I guess he had already sat his stuff down. So he walks away and sits down somewhere else and starts eating. I finish my foot and I go ask him, "Wrestling fan huh." He says yea. Then we started talking. He was around 60 years old, black dude. Kinda country. dialect. He started out saying how he was a fan of Snuka, Superstar Billy Graham, Ken Patera, Bruno and a bunch of the other stars of WWF from that era. He also started talking about steriods and how people foolishly believe they weren't used heavily back in the day. He said he didn't really care for Hulk Hogan but it was a big moment when he beat Andre because nobody had really seen him dominated before that point in time. He didn't care for Andre either. He RAVED about Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. He talked about how far they came. He even referenced them coming from ROH without me having to assist him. He said he would have never imagined those dudes coming from where they came from becoming the stars that they are now. He didn't really talk much about Cena but he doesn't care much about him. He really talked a lot about Superstar Jimmy Graham and how he influenced so many wrestlers. We spent a little time talking about Benoit and how roid-rage was probably the cause of what happened with him. He brought up Vicki Guerrero getting a sweet deal after Eddie died. He also talked about how unbelievable of a World Champion Eddie and Rey were. He says that they had no business winning a World title. He talked about the Rock painting himself in Green last year and posing as the Incredible Hawk. He raved about HBK. He called HBK the Iron Man. He specifically called him a "Marathon Wrestler." He says Bret and Shawn remind him of Daniel and Punk. Little dudes that look legit. He talked about all of the talent that came out of the state of Minnesota. The Hennigs, Rude. He also talked about how much he liked Piper and he was amazed that I knew about the Snuka/Piper Coconut spot. He was like, "Damn you remember that. You probably weren't even born." He spent like 5 mins talking about how he hates the state of women's wrestling. He says all of the girls look the same now and Vince McMahon should be embarrassed of himself to put those girls in the ring as bad as they are. He brought up Fabolous Moolah and SHeri Martel and talked about how they were actual WRESTLERS. He talked about how cool of a white boy Dusty Rhodes was. He spent like 5 mins talking about the Von Erich family and how they were all messed up. How tragic of a family story that was. He knew who Liger was! Of course I brought it up. He liked Liger, Tiger Mask, Strong Kobayashi, and Kawada. He brought up those names! He talked about the Snuka/Backlund match and how Snuka had him beat but he went back up to the top of the cage. We talked about Snuka supposedly killing that girl. He said Bob Backlund was the man back in the day. A Legit dude. He talked about how good Kurt Angle was but how he was on that stuff. So I was essentially just throwing names out there just to get an opinion. We were browsing the magazine together and there is a picture of The Shield and he says, "Those are some bad dudes. I have never seen somebody come in like that. They didn't come in scared, they put their foot down." He then went on to talk about how they could have made it in any era. There was probably more but I can't remember anything else right now. We talked for like 1.5 hours. Really enjoyed that talk.

  5. Kozlov no matter his position came across as the real deal. My favorite bit with him was the tea party with Sheamus, Santino is acting scared and Kozlov does not give a fuck. He had no fear of Sheamus and was daring him to do something. Kozlov got this grin on his face and tipped his hat to him. They had a good TV match the next week, because you believed he could take Sheamus. Down the road they started jobbing him to every one. Leading to him losing to Jinder Mahal which looked like some bullshit,

  14. Chavo Jr had great matches with Rey and Evan Bourne. I know, everyone has great matches with Rey but at GAB 2004 he was about as game an opponent as Rey has had in WWE outside of Eddy, Jamie Noble, or Finlay. He actually had interesting matches with Kane and got decent stuff out of CM Punk during his questionable early years in WWE.

  20. I haven't had much of a chance to see a ton of the set so far. Life's just been really busy. I've done basically one write up and then moved on to watch a few more matches with the listening party. That said, I've seen this match three times now, the first when I was wondering if I wanted to get the set or not in a pretty choppy, cut-filled, dark version on youtube, the second when some of the reviews started to come in and the third with the Wrestling Party podcast. Most of the matches on the set I've only been through once, with the Party so I haven't been able to do my usual absurd write ups. I don't even know if I have to with this match. You people are nuts. You're tasteless vampires who wouldn't know a good, meaningful narrative if it bit you... No, I'm shitting you. The first time I saw this match I could barely figure out which guy was which, missed the second fall, and didn't understand why they kept cutting to an old woman. I still thought it was violent and striking. What I didn't realize was that: Major things: 1. It has one of the best heat segments I've ever seen. 2. It has one of the best moments of transition I've ever seen. 3. It has some of the best late-match selling I've ever seen. When I say "one of" or "some of", I can't really think of any examples off the top of my head I'd absolutely consider better. Other things that aren't quite as pressing but still matter: 1. It has some of the best punches I've ever seen and so meaningfully placed. It also has some of the best, meanest stomps, the crazy ring apron usage, and at least one killer knee. There's also that really great butterfly suplex into a submission. 2. The transition means so much because of the heat segment and the heat segment means even more because of the fact it's done in front of Chicana's family. The selling at the end, in turn, makes everything that comes before it more meaningful. 3. I love the parallel structure of the missed top rope splash at the end. 4. There are three great dives, one being the most insane frigging bump. 5. The blood is really visceral, sure, and the stretch muffler at the end is really nasty. 6. MS-1 is such a cocky bastard during the first fall, from even before the ambush. Chicana is super aggressive on the floor right after the second fall. I think Phil said this was one of the best matches of the 80s and Kris said it was of the best of all time. I'll agree that it was one of the best matches I've seen from the 80s. It's this minimalist masterpiece with brilliant execution. I'd be glad if it's NOT my #1 because that would mean there's something else even better and that would be a god damn treat. It might also be a minor miracle. Also, I am honestly sorry I can't be a contrarian bastard on this match, since I'm sure that'd be more fun for everyone.

  21. My favorite part of those playoffs was Charles Barkley killing my hopes for a Cavs title when he (rightly) brought up, "Who on this Cavs team is going to guard Hedo and Rashard?" Then I just stared at the ceiling for a while afterward, and realized he was completely right.

  22. Does anyone know what this goo is? I just bought this at Dollar General store for...well $1 and it is pretty awesome looking. But it opens, and the goo inside is really stretchy and gooey and so temptingly purple. It is some kind of edible taffy or something? There is literally no information on this guy: It indicates that the little skeleton guy is a choking hazard...but doesn't say "DON'T EAT THIS PURPLE GOO YOU FUCKING FOOL!!!!" As a general rule, I assume everything at dollar general is edible unless it says otherwise...and yet...I wanna know before I eat it...but I do wanna eat it. The barcode yields nothing. The company is just a shell of DOLlar GENeral corp.

  29. Again, have not read the whole thing (who has time to read on the internet?), but as a grainy ECW tape collecting dude at the time, I thought it was kind of bullshit that Heyman sat on the World Title that long. As an outsider, I knew Shane was "The Franchise", but it wouldn't have mattered to me who Taz won the belt from. He was The Guy, have him beat JT Smith for crissakes. Another note, watching ECW on WWE's DVDs still looks weird as shit to me, like it's not even the same product. Where are the fucking tracking and dub lines? That's ECW.

  31. The last 10 minutes of the third period and everything else after that was fucking awesome. The Jets giving away two goals in the first and the Trouba getting hurt in the second sucked with great force. If the Jets had lost, they should have fired Noel for sending out fucking Peluso in the shootout. Guy does shit all game, and his shootout effort was pathetic. My seat ended up being four rows from the top of the building at the end where the Jets scored all their goals tonight. Good times had by all!

  39. What, pray tell, is wrong with a title changing hands? I get the other ones, even though I think they're pretty stupid, but this one completely eludes me. "The Championship Opportunity has been successfully completed!" The amorous congress that just took place between those two warriors will not soon be forgotten by my eyes!

  42. After paying seventy-five bucks a pop for tickets to see Mr. and Mrs. Reznor's side project How To Destroy Angels this past spring, I broke that record by shelling out two C-notes (plus LiveNation vig) so me and my date could stand on the floor of Brooklyn's new Barclays Center to witness Nine Inch Nails proper. I did not regret either purchase. If you have ANY interest in NIN past or present, the current stage production and touring band will shear the top of your head clean off.

  46. Because he was the World Champion and should have at least won one or two confrontations. Because it was putting the spotlight on him in a time he needed to recover from injury. Instead it emphasizes his weakness and makes him look like a paper champion. It is shitting on the belt and that is all on Paul Heyman. The same guy who thought letting his champion and top contender get beat by the WWF champion was a great idea.Douglas argued to lose the belt to Al Snow at the May Pay Per View and was vetoed. But focusing on January 1999, both Shane and the title needed to be rehabilitated.
