  2. 9:55 someone expresses excitement for an upcoming event...11:22 someone pisses on their parade. The internet at its most basic.

  3. I'm pretty sure that match and Ventura's commentary is still to this day the reason I am morally offended whenever a champion comes out first for a title match.

  4. You know TNA would have died multiple times if it was run as anything other than a tax write-off, right? They're not some sort of plucky underdog scraping by - they're an absolute failure on every level.

  6. Well lemme tell ya something, Mean Gene. They say one bad apple spoils the bunch, dude...but what about three-dozen? Rotten to the core, brother. Sometimes, man, ya gotta do what'cha gotta do! Every morning, before a big match, brother, I asked the big dude upstairs what he wanted from the Hulkster...and he never told me to love thy neighbor, man, or to turn the other cheek, dude. He gave me the strength and the fortitude to become his vessel, brother, by any means necessary, to overcome the obstacles placed before the Hulkster, brother, for all the little Hulkamaniacs watching around the world. All the training, all the prayers, all the vitamins were for this point in my life, man. When Vince McMahon came to me, offering me this position in the World Wrestling Federation, brother, I saw the lightning flash. I heard the thunder roll, man. I fell down on my knees and I cried, my God why has thou forsaken me, dude? And the Lord said, Hulkster, you know damn good, more than you realize, you're no earthly good at all unless you take this opportunity, brother, and do whatever you have to. And he didn't say Hulkster be polite. Do whatever you have to, man, to transform and transmogrify the World Wrestling Federation into a special place. Where the hearts, souls and minds of the Hulkamaniacs can blossom. And I gave my word to God, brother. And that's why I took those heinous dudes out by any means necessary, brother.

  10. Maxwell David came into the world Tuesday night. He's our first. 8 lbs 14 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. Healthy baby, mom had a tough delivery (baby decided he wanted his left arm to come out with his head) but she's recovering nicely. My emotions over the last few days, after being fairly calm all during the pregnancy, went on quite the ride. Probably had something to do with me and his Mom being awake from 10 PM Monday until 1:30 AM this morning. Things have calmed and mellowed. The breastfeeding is going lots better, which is taking lots of the stress off. We're getting used to his ways and him to ours. Long journey ahead but we're lucky to have a great support system (4 excited grandparents and 2 thrilled aunties) in place. I'll be checking in here to get some much needed advice from those of you who have gone through all this stuff.

  12. Maybe I shouldn't be, but I'm surprised at how nit picky some of you are. The game is really, really good. It may be the best wrestling game to come out in at least 10 years. Some of you make it seem like one tiny detail, like the absence of a move, makes the game completely broken, and those pain points take up something like 1 second of play time.

  14. OKay so I'm watching Hogan/Savage WMV, so I can join in. What really cracked me up was this exchange between Gorilla and Ventura that sounds like a precursor to the Wrestler vs. Sports Entertainer concept we deal with today. Jesse (on Savage): To me, the most talented wrestler in the world. Gorilla: If you're carrying that world title, you clearly are the most talented wrestler in the world. Hogan enters. Gorilla: In my book the greatest professional athlete on the planet! So here's what's great about Jesse in this match: He sets up his playing field early. First he denounces Elizabeth as a gold digger. She'll be in the neutral corner and when it's all over she'll go with whoever is the winner. Gorilla doesn't defend her honor, but incidentally reinforces the slight as a possibility by saying: "Sounds like a smart move to me!" This accomplishes two things: One, it sets up a possibility that Liz could turn heel and side with Macho Man. Two, it gives Ventura a ton of leverage as a heel, talking shit. He might be right. So when Hogan comes out second, and Ventura calls bullshit on it and Gorilla AGAIN backs him up by saying it's against normal procedure - you start to maybe side with Jesse when he builds his case that Hogan is playing mind games with Savage with the entrance and with Liz. Maybe he is the Luster. By the time Savage jumps out of the ring and hides behind Liz, Ventura doesn't seem so crazy because he's been given so much room. You can't call him out on supporting a coward because you've allowed the possibility that he's might be right on too much stuff. This is what's tough about Ventura - he's so fucking good at debating you that you really have to have an equal mind across from him to tangle with. Besides all that Ventura is great at calling the action. I'm a huge supporter of treating wrestling matches like tactical battles, not just dances. I LOVE GAMEPLAN WRESTLING. Ventura works from that angle. Hogan's bigger, he has that for sure. But Ventura lets us know that Savage makes up for size with speed and aerial tactics. He also takes a real world concept - amateur wrestling and the points system - and says the pros can't just ride it out for points, you gotta win. So no one can play it safe. I love it when Savage busts out the back suplex on Hogan, because Ventura can be amazed, and since we thought we'd conceded the power game to Hogan, it looks like it may not be such a huge difference. Hogan could be in real trouble. Ventura settles into being a normal heel after the first third - he supports Macho cheating but not Hogan cheating.He does it so much that you feel stupid for thinking he might be right earlier....but then Elizabeth blocks Hogan from crushing Savage's face into ring post. SO CONFUSED. WHO DO I TRUST?! Clearly Jesse Ventura is Satan and he's testing your faith in Hogan Christ. Gorilla(in reference to Hogan after the match): Thanking the man upstairs who made it all possible! I wonder if Ventura was the reason I hated Hogan as a kid? Or if it was Hogan using World title GOLD to support his piety. Hogan can cheat as much as he wants, but if he wins the gold then he is spiritually righteous. Anyway, it's a great call - and it exemplifies all the stuff that makes Ventura one of the greatest to call a match. He fucks with you, but in the end you know he's still wrong. But other than that, he's adding to the storytelling of the match by using actual descriptions of events as opposed to just meaningless exclamations.

  28. And both his parents are professors. The poor poor schlub. Boy did he pick the wrong career. 90% of the NFL is comprised of punks, criminals, illiterates, and anti-social deviants. Football players are easily the worst people character wise on average of the four major sports. You drop a well-educated guy from a nice stable background into that snakepit and no wonder he had a nervous breakdown. I do enjoy the fact being educated and coming from a nice family is evidently Chris Carter's criteria for being mentally weak.

  29. Jesse was quite possibly the best heel color man ever (which to my mind is like being the world's tallest dwarf, but I digress). But he got really REALLY bad in WCW. How many times did we have to hear "Texicans! HA!" during a Dustin Rhodes match? I don't know what the hell you're talking about? Jesse was just as awesome in WCW. Now if you want to talk about commentators who couldn't make the transition, then Bobby Heenan is your guy. Regardless, my favourite Heenan commentary moment was not the Royal Rumble, but rather some random Jim Duggan match in WCW. Before the match, Schiavone told Heenan that Duggan had a university degree. Heenan started laughing and kept laughing throughout the entire match and aftermath. It was glorious.

  37. Great stuff with Roode and Angle. Glad to see the Mafia over even if it was done in a really clunky manner. So so so sad to see the Aces go since it felt like they had somewhere to go with them ending and having Taz as the mouthpiece for Knux and Garett instead of WOOHOO SWERVE. The tourney was a complete clusterfuck with all the random brawls, and they didn't really do much to set up a time table for it until the very end of the show with Angle-Aries being announced for next week. I guess they'll have the finals at Turning Point. Sabin-Hardy was a video game match, but at least had a spectacular finish. http://jayreviewsthings.blogspot.com/2013/11/tna-impact-11-7-13.html Screens - http://www.imagebam.com/gallery/vb7h3of2hdw32x1hw9m6vdi2sibouxkq
