  1. I know it's not a popular opinion to have on-line but this is pretty much exactly how I feel. If Rick Rude wasn't good enough to be on top, then I don't see it in Daniel Bryan. I don't care how many people in the crowd chant "Yes!" I loved Mr. Perfect. He did fine in the midcard. Is it really some big catastrophe if Daniel Bryan isn't WWE Champion & carrying the banner of the company? Ricky Steamboat was never WWE Champion. Jake Roberts wasn't either. Different times, different eras, I know...but there's a lot more to it than just workrate. I mean, compared to like The Miz? Yeah, Daniel Bryan would be a good fit. Daniel Bryan is a helluva worker. No one when they were watching him back in Ring of Honor in 2005ish thought that one day he'd be in the main event of a WWE Summerslam, wrestling for the WWE title in a Hell in a Cell match that featured both Shawn Michaels & Triple H. That's insane. Now people are complaining that he's not the top dog in the biggest wrestling company in the world when he's like 5'7", 180lbs? C'mon, man. He's more famous that he has ever been, he's making bank & he marrying a Bella twin. He's doing pretty fucking OK. We'll never really know if Bryan could have been that guy because they blew it so horribly. He was getting crowd reactions that over the last 15 years are rivaled by only Steve Austin and Jeff Hardy (who could have been THE GUY if he wasn't such a fuck up) but they booked him to look like a complete dumbshit week after week. And week after week this thread was filled with "just wait and see where it goes" posts. Well where it's gone is he's back in the mid-card "where he belongs" and you're now being asked to spend $50 for a BIG SHOW VS. RANDY ORTON main event. Maybe everything the WWE reportedly believes is right and Bryan isn't big enough to be a top guy, but maybe they screwed the pooch with every single thing they did after Summerslam and shot themselves in the foot before they ever got to find out what star potential Bryan really has.

  2. Well who the fuck am I supposed to shit on then? Can't shit on Davey for wrestling shitty because it's for the fans. Can't shit on the fans for supporting shitty wrestling because that's just like their opinion maaaan. What am I supposed to do just ignore it and let people be free to live their shitty lives and enjoy stupid things? This isn't what the internet was made for. I have so much shit inside me. I have to let it out.

  4. And two things:1) Did Bryan not winning the belt have a happy ending? No. Did a really good story get told? Yes. The dude never got a fair shot and couldn't pull the trigger with the odds against him. The story's also not over, mind you -- he can get that shot back right away. The Big Show's involvement ties into the story. So do Dustin/Cody. There has been a ton of great stuff. 2) I don't care about the ratings. But the ratings might have tanked because the story is more of the same -- evil authority figures rig the system. It's been well-executed but I could totally buy no one wanting to see HHH and Steph anymore. And, naturally, no one in the company can or would really say that to them.

  5. Random factoid. "Chris Hero" is the google search term that brings the most traffic to my blog by a large margin. And despite me having maybe one post out of a couple hundred that even mentions his name. Top 3 1. Chris Hero - 1745 2. Antonio Inoki - 565 3. man balls - 113

  10. What proof do you have that La Parka isn't a ghost? I used to do this. I would bail after the baby got his shine, and then walk about halfway around the ring. When the ref started to count, I would make a "T" with my hands and call a time out. When the ref denied me the TO and the fans started to give me shit for asking, I would then look at the ref and tap my shoulders, and say "I only need a 20"... Which really seemed to piss folks off.Kudos. Also, please tell me that after pulling off a clever move on a face, that you used to tap your head to show how smart you were. I always got a kick out of that.Hell yes I did that. And I would look at a fan and go "smaaaaaaaaaart" while doing so.

  12. Also, Hogan was TOTALLY macking on Savage's woman. I thought so when I was five, and I still think so now. He was way out of line. If Hulk wanted Liz, he would have taken her. Now Bill Apter put across the theory that Hogan was using Liz to provoke Savage into attacking him. So when Hogan took his title back, he could claim self defense. Even worse if Apter was right, then! I could forgive Hogan for having a lapse in moral judgment because he was mesmerized by Miss Elizabeth's wholesome beauty. However, driving a wedge between a couple just to make it look like he isn't the aggressor and so that he can get a shot at the belt? For shame if that is true! This sounds like the type of thing that a man who showed poor sportsmanship at the end of the 1992 Royal Rumble and that joined the Outsiders to rip apart WCW would do, however. You would think that Hogan would at least just ask Savage for a shot at the belt straight up since they were friends, but then again, we see how he reacted when Andre the Giant did the same thing to him. Shameful.

  16. Yeah. Even if it was a smart thing for Wade to do, the guy tossed a line drive at the top of the backboard. At least aim for the rim

  17. It was more Wade line driving the ball off the backboard on purpose on the second one that really did it. That and whoever did one of the worst boxing out jobs I've ever seen on the rebound, didn't catch who it was but it was probably Bosh. Still though, no fucking idea what Wade was thinking or what the person who told him to do that was thinking, I think every Heat fan knew they were losing after that one. One thing I can say about Miami; when they give no fucks about a game they really give no fucks about a game.

  20. All of what I said about WWE not needing Hero set aside, though, TNA should absolutely be burning up his phone today trying to sign him. Bring him in and have him go to war with Samoa Joe as Chris Hero. It might inspire Joe and if nothing else Hero will gain instant credibility of being able to go toe-to-toe with him.

  22. I think Titus could have a decent run. There was that pop when he and Roman Reigns stared each other down on that Low Carders vs. Shield match on Raw. I just hope they don't split the PTP, just have Darren Young cheering him on, maybe going for the US belt. O'Neil has some charisma to him and size, which will help. Can someone please tell Vince no one tunes in to see Great Khali? The big tall guy mystique to him is not really there anymore. Although a feud between the Punjabi Playboy and Tyson Kidd for Natalya's hand would of been funny for a five minute segment every now and then. The potential card for Wrestlemania seems really bland to me, have to see how it all goes down. Another Cena/Orton match, Ryback vs either Big Show or Goldberg, and Brock/Taker... I hope we get that HBK/Bryan match and Taker/Sting instead. I cannot fathom them asking $60-70 for the current card they seem headed towards. Goldust/Cody could be intriguing. I just wish the WWE Creative could craft one storyline that doesn't flicker out, but they dropped the ball with The Nexus, with Summer of Punk and this Authority angle is not really doing anything for me. I don't really hate it, I just don't find myself caring about the next show for it. I know it is hard to balance out the egos and churn out a good show every week but they always seem to miss chances to make moments. Sandow's mitb shenanigans with Cody could of been done better, it went nowhere.

  23. Any of you Lakers fans catch that game last night? Poor Pau. I have Davis in one of my money leagues this year and it feels so good. He is making the leap. It's going to be a big leap. http://youtu.be/cmIZ9AD53JE

  24. I should know this. Citizen Kane is used for clapping but is there a standard internet gif for spittakes?Hey now, I watched the Summer of Punk even though it was brutally boring, and eventually I got my pay off with the People's Elbow and the reaction on here. If I'd given up on it early on, I wouldn't have had the satisfaction of seeing grown men openly weep because their favourite fake fighter job to the WORST. MOVE. EVER.

  25. I was a "see how it goes" guy I guess. You know why I'm not upset? Because I haven't been holding on to unrealistic expectations for months. Is it so bad that Punk and Bryan take a few months to help the Wyatt family get over? It's not really a downgrade when they are both clearly tentpoles of WWE programming at this point. It would be like calling Cena's current position a downgrade because he is mucking around with Del Rio and the Real Americans.

  26. MoS2 is sounding like one giant shitfest the more I hear about it, and I'm not even upset over Affman. What the hell is the logic behind skipping over Robin and jumping right to Nightwing? There's a good proportion of the general audience that doesn't read comics that has no idea who Nightwing is. If they wanted to include him in MoS3 or some other eventual sequel, after establishing the Robin character, fine. But skipping over the first part just screams "we'll throw some shit at the wall and see what sticks." Not going to comment on the Wonder Woman rumors since there's a good probability it's not her they're casting, but like hell I'd know who the character is supposed to be.

  32. Mah two favorite promos of the last few years: You watch 4:00 on with anyone who isn't some jaded prick, they are going to be screaming for Cena to hit Barrett back to England. I watched it with my grandma before she died and she was all like "I would've kicked his ass! No job is worth taking that stuff!" And fuck you, some little kid screaming "NEVER GIVE UP!" and Cena's response is pro wrestling to me. (Sorry Wrestling Bear) It was also the last Piper's Pit to feel organic and special. idk But Piper probably wasn't hammered before this promo.

  34. What?! Mickie is awesome. She was great as a psycho heel and got over and then as a face she always received the most reaction of anyone. I loved her in tag matches, she'd get the hot tag, come in like a house of fire and the audience actually gave a crap.. I hope they sign her back.

  35. It's going to be so disappointing if it turns out Mycroft really is just an innocent restauranteur who just wants to mend his relationship with Sherlock. He has to be aligned with someone or something sinister. Why does he want Sherlock out of New York? Besides, he friendzoned Lucy Lui! There has to be something up with the guy.

  36. My point here is that the hate directed at Davey and Eddie is way overboard and I'll explain why. You know what part of the reason is for their matches being so terrible? Because of the fans who watch them. Because of twenty years of MOVEZ and dropping people on their head being the shit. I fully believe that Davey and Eddie are simply putting on a show that they know the people there want to see. Blame Benoit. Blame Japan. Blame the ROHbots. They are all part of the problem. You ask some members of this board about Davey/Eddie in WWE and their reply is like these two would actually go out there and try to recreate one of their ROH matches. I don't believe that. They would go out there and they would do what they are told.

  37. This is your second time in two pages reacting to the Briscoes using the confederate flag like it's something new. You do realize they've been using it for like 7 years, right?

  38. Oh so you are just suppose to wait for a guy to try to maim you. "Oh hey Bobby Heenan, I know you had a big fat guy break my ribs. Turned my friend/mentor against me and would do even worse given a chance. But I'm just gonna turn my back and wait for you to attack me again." The Stinger would have asked him to be his tag partner against the Brainbusters.

  40. Congrats offspring...if you need help - or even emotional support, use here as a sounding board. 13 month inoculations yesterday - pneumonia, hep-c & meningitis, then the mmr jab. C was a fucking trooper, only crying a wee bit and back to her normal bubbly self within a quarter hour. Mrs Red and I were shitting it - mainly because of her family history and autism. Yeah, I know the Lancet 98 article was debunked and the doctor who wrote it was struck off the register, but the seeds of doubt were there. Not having the injection was not an option. However, we had a choice of paying £300 for three separate injections at Harley St, or getting all three done in one for free on the NHS. I'm sure C will turn out fine, but its caused me a fuckton of sleepless nights recently.
