  4. It's pretty obvious that the correct vote is entire world. It's the choice that will most fulfill the true spirit of March Madness: "Wait, what is the true meaning of March Madness, Mark Henry?" "Lights please! The true spirit of March Madness is to do whatever it takes to somehow get Jaedmc's hopes up that this year might be different. That this year people might actually see all his hard work as a chance to expand their horizons rather than just to be the same assholes who are going to say and do the same dumb shit they did last year." "And then, Mark Henry? What then?" [sigh]"Here, since you dumb sad fools can't quite grasp this, let me show you in a language you understand, crude photoshop" "And that, my sad dumb message board, is the true meaning of March Madness. Lights please."

  5. I liked Man of Steel, but I knew that it wasn't "my" Superman. The movie was made the way it was because memes get reinvented for new audiences and that's how they survive. You can get mad about it and resort to posts in ALL CAPS or you can acknowledge that the mythos is changing and adapting to what modern audiences want to see. The movie made almost a billion dollars. The Action Comics and Superman comics make around $419,000 a month selling around 140,000 copies combined. The people have spoken. Find something you do enjoy and relax. It's all good. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go rage about the Sam Raimi Spider-Man flicks. Toby fucking McGuire crybaby horseshit.

  8. Bring in Prince Nana and pair him w/ Kofi Nahaje Kingston. They're both from Ghana. Then you'd have the beginnings of the WWE version of the Embassy. Next, I'd add a tag team that requires a mouthpiece. One that's not good enough to be Paul Heyman guys. I think Ryback and Curtis Axel would fit perfectly in the mid-card level new Embassy. Now comes the best part. Since Hunico has resumed the role of Sin Cara; Camacho should get called up, but drop the faux Mexican act. He needs to embrace his Tongan heritage and embrace that he is the son of motherfucking HAKU!!

  12. Were any of you guys here reading WCW Magazine near the end of its life? They used to have a feature called "Uncensored" that was a pretty amazing sitdown one-on-one interview with a guy that's as close to being a shoot as it possibly can. I went through and transcribed the entirety of Sting's interview and was pretty surprised at the stuff that was discussed: "Q: When you were pitted against Vampiro during the New Blood vs Millionaires Club angle, there were some who suggested the two of you didn’t work well together. Your thoughts? I have nothing personal against Vampiro. He and I have talked about it and I’ve been straight up with him. I told him there just wasn’t chemistry there. It wasn’t his fault, it wasn’t my fault; I’m not pointing the finger at anybody. For whatever reason, it just didn’t work. I tried everything I could do — we did videos and vignettes. At the end, I finally said, if the bookers or writers are trying to make a new Sting, sensing that Sting has lost his drive or whatever, and they want to capitalize on another painted face around here and they want to make Vampiro that guy, then fine. But let him go off and do his thing by himself. He probably stands a better chance without me involved. Originally, they had Vampiro as a babyface aligned with me, and I think that would have been good if they had continued that storyline. That story could have been something that people could sink their teeth into. Instead, he was slapped up on me, just as Kidman was slapped up onto Hogan, and so on. They wanted to make stars overnight, I guess. But you had guys with very high “Q” ratings and guys with very low “Q” ratings. They were trying to give guys the rub and bring them up, but what happens is that it brings the guys on top down.” The entire interview with Sting is on my site and is too lengthy to post here -- real neat to read since Sting is a seemingly private individual. Other guys that were interviewed were Vince Russo, Goldberg, Bret Hart (AFTER his career ending injuries), and even Buff Bagwell. I'll need to get around to getting all of these online...

  13. Final Fantasy VIII has a plot riddled with crater-sized plot holes, paper thin, annoying characters, a magic/junction system that can see you be unbeatable 5 hours in by simply abusing the fun but paper thin card game, annoying sidequests that you couldn't POSSIBLY solve without use of an FAQ, that annoying ass mission in the fucking desert dungeon when you're running round and round like a Scooby Doo episode, a really bad translation and completely drops everything that is the slightest bit interesting for time-jumping, convoluted sorceress, weepy bullshit. But, since I played it non-stop as a child, every single bit of it is ingrained onto my very being and I could sit down now, load up a save from any point in the game and pick right up with an encyclopedic knowledge of what cards to refine, what magic to junction and where to go next. Some people know how to save lives, I know how to get unlimited energy crystals from monsters in Esthar. Jesus Christ.

  17. Batista turning on HHH on RAW before WrestleMania was so amazing. Then they banished him to SmackDown and I rarely got to see him save for that RAW/SmackDown Survivor Series parking lot showdown - when the RAW team looked like a bunch of goofs, and the SmackDown crew was all swanked out.

  21. Mark Henry as Marcellus Wallace I like Mark Henry as the Kingpin with Big E as his Rhino and 3MB as those goons The Enforcers. Have a plucky babyface (Sami Zayn?) battle through Henry's underlings while Henry hangs back in a suit and smokes cigars. That's a year-long program right there.

  24. You're infringing on my gimmick. I hope FSW is laughing suitably hard. Bull, FSW stole my gimmick. In fact before FSW was anti-Punk I was anti-Rey Mysterio. There's really nothing earnest about you at all, is there? It's just all gimmick all the time. I mean with FSW, you can see what he really digs. He's got a slant on things, but some of that is just because of where he's from and his relative youth. When I'm an ass, it's usually some heightened version of what I'm feeling or I'm just getting into things here. You're just the living embodiment of insubstantial internet ooze. Anyway, screw the vote, Jae. I'm convinced. Pepper in some international guys. If they get trounced, then that's part of the character of the place. People have criticisms of Tanahashi or whoever here that they have less elsewhere and they're no less valid than any other criticisms I see. It'll get me to watch some Rush matches which I haven't done yet.

  25. The first Terminator does a great job of using Arnold's then extremely limited range. But in the second movie? The man gives a god damn great performance of slowly letting in more humanity. If a more respected dramatic actor had the role and turned in the exact same performance that man would have gotten serious Oscar nomination buzz.

  34. Punk was using a chair on Brock. It's not like he was out there whipping Lesnar's ass straight up. Lesnar pretty much beat the hell out of him at the beginning of the match before Punk changed his strategy. Also, it should take a lot to beat Punk. He survived two pedigrees from Triple H and Cena has always had to use multiple AA's to beat him.

  37. I usually challenge the other guy to throw a baseball at my chest. And then I talk at him and get inside his head and he starts to get nervous cause everyone has gathered around to watch. He usually misses and then we get to know each other and work it out. And then we take turns with Max Patkin banging Susan Sarandon. It's worked for me like three times. By the way, Susan Sarandon is pretty slutty it turns out. And Max Patkin is a goddamn stallion.

  38. I don't know how I would order everything after it, but my favorite WWE match of the year is the Cena/Henry title match. I'm going to do a little writeup to explore why I feel that way just off the top of my head. To be honest, I also need to watch it again because when I first saw it, I was far too busy rooting for Mark Henry and reacting like it was an actual fight: "Watch out for the trip into the STF! WATCH THE TRIP!" I have problems, I guess is what I'm admitting. John Cena © vs. Mark Henry, WWE Championship Match, Money in the Bank 2013 First of all, it feels weird that a former whipping boy like Mark Henry got such a pop coming out first. I know that it is in large part because Henry has improved into being one of the best superheavyweight workers ever and in large part because of the anti-Cena part of the crowd, but it's still weird. Anyway, Henry comes down looking utterly pissed off and focused, which is only second to Henry coming down smiling because he is going to ruin someone's life in a few seconds. Cena coming out with his arms spread and sarcastically remarking "The City of Brotherly Love!" to the camera was genuinely funny too. Then, Cena gets in the ring and Mark Henry talks shit before being backed off by the ref while Cena stares with what could be described as moderate uncertainty, high motivation. So, I already love this match before the bell because everyone looks like they're ready to kill to be champion. Cena wants to keep the pace up, stick and move, and Henry wants to slow it down, something emphasized by Cena trying to start the match running and getting planted with a knee and a headbutt. Cole helpfully points out this idea on commentary. Cena is bumping and selling like a pro as Henry does basic, cool superheavyweight offense with big headbutts and a running splash in the corner. They go outside kinda early, but Henry front suplexes Cena across the stairs, which was a great spot, so it's okay. Cole trying to sell Henry wanting to destroy Cena early and put this thing away helped put the move outside in context. It also helps that Henry is going for pins off of the more hard-hitting spots. Anyway, I could watch Henry in control against a good bumper and seller all day. Running splash against the ropes got another audible gasp from the crowd, and Henry again goes for a pin off of it. Cole again emphasizes that Henry knows that Cena will come back on you if you let him in response to Henry cursing once Cena kicks out. I guess they are moving through some of this stuff pretty quickly, but it all fits together on commentary and in what Henry is doing during his control period here to start the match. Henry fends off the first Cena flurry of the night and hits a giant swing, and the crowd stops with the "Cena Sucks!" chant to chant for Mark Henry because Mark Henry is basically awesomeness personified. Giant swing against the barricade is a sweet spot, though Cesaro has done it better. Cena tries another flurry but gets reversed on a slam where Henry just falls on him. Cena finally gets through by using his speed and agility rather than just relying on strength, and he nicely gets rewarded for doing so by knocking Henry off his feet, but when he goes back to trying pure strength, Henry reverses the AA. I like that the story of this match is "Cena always overpowers other people, but he cannot play the strength game he normally does here, or he will lose." Cena tries brute strength and gets clubbed down. Cena uses speed to counter and then attack (such as off the shoulderblock after ducking a clothesline and turning Henry around or off a tornado DDT counter) and gets rewarded. Cena finally gets Henry down long enough for an AA which is rightfully treated as amazing, but pure strength is not beating Henry, as has been established, and Henry kicks out at two. Cena overacts a smidge as he looks confused, then hopeful that maybe the ref fucked up and it was actually a three count, but it's awesome because here is where Cena really gets it, story-wise, that strength won't get him through this match and he has to use speed, agility, and brains to tie Henry up somehow. Right after this, he goes up top for a crossbody and gets countered into a WSS, but he's still John Cena, dammit! and he has the resiliency to kick out at two. Even if his strength game isn't working tonight, Cena still has heart; you can't club that out of him. Henry, meanwhile, is losing composure here. With each two count earlier in the match, he got visibly and audibly frustrated, and after only getting two on a WSS, he loses it and rips the cover off of a turnbuckle. Then he decides that this won't be enough and he needs a couple of chairs as well. This distracts the ref, who tosses the chairs out. Meanwhile, Henry rips off another cover in the corner, but Cena drives his head into the corner, having had time to regroup since Henry lost focus, and follows up with a quick STF attempt. Again, this is an awesome sequence to me precisely because Henry's inability to put Cena away takes Henry off his game. He was focused before, stalking Cena and stuffing Cena's attempts to get any offense going for the most part by staying on top of him. At this point, however, his patience has eroded, giving Cena an opening. Cena, for his part, moves with speed and purpose whenever he gets an opening, really driving home that he needs to be purposeful and stay on top of Mark Henry to win this thing. Also, as a nice note, good guy Cena won't break and takes most of the five count to let go of the STF - even Cena isn't above bending the rules to beat a monster like this. The ending run, I remember not being as big on, but it makes more sense watching it again. At this point, Henry has abandoned his "kill him with power" gameplan and has decided that cheating is the best method. A low blow doesn't work, but it gives Henry a chance to try for another WSS, and Cena uses speed and agility, not power, to counter and get the winning STF. Cena came into this match and wrestled it like a dude that had to find something to rely on other than his typical power game, eventually figuring out what he needed to do over the course of the match to survive. Henry came into this match as a guy with a plan to use his awesome power to win, but he simply did not account for Cena's heart, and that caused him to deviate from a gameplan that was working and give Cena enough openings to finally beat him. Awesome story here where you could see the strategy for both guys and how it evolved over the match just like a real fight. Plus this match was mostly Henry in control on offense, which meant a) Henry with his awesome strong man offense, shit talking, and stalking of Cena like a lion stalking an antelope and B) Cena selling and bumping quite awesomely. I would not call it perfect, and I'm sure people might pick nits about Cena not fully hitting the DDT counter or his STF or what-have-you, but as a story and a match with a bunch of awesome spots, this thing works so well. Definitely, I would say it is the best WWE match this year in my view. It also makes me want to see a Cesaro/Henry feud where they do crazy strongman spots to one another all the time. EDIT: This was ridiculously long. Sorry about that. I need an editor.
