  1. As I said the last time we were fantasy booking the WWE Network, they need to hop on the poker bandwagon. Join us for DEAD MAN'S HAND, featuring the Undertaker and assorted WWE legends playing cards and shooting the shit for an hour.

  2. That ending was fucking bone chilling awesome. I want Daniel Bryan to take me to a national park ask me to marry him soooo bad.

  4. I thought it was the hipsters that fawn over TLOU and it was the casual gamer that cannot fathom the praise laid at the feet of a game whose gameplay really is pretty lackluster? Too bad that the tension of the story does not transfer to the gameplay. Death holds no real sting because the frequent checkpoints make the game feel like a warm blanket when compared to a game like GTA where death happens rather suddenly. You learn to respect guns very quicklly in GTA5. Speaking of guns, if it's the end of the world, then why not emphasize trap setting and makeshift weapons and keep guns scarce? The new Tomb Raider has more of a gritty survival feel than this game, at least when compared to the TLOU's Normal Mode.... which most gamers will play in preference to Survival Mode. Survival Mode is IMO is how TLOU was designed to be played, but then you have the RPG diffusion players who want the gameplay to compliment the storyline and not visa versa. If all I wanted to do was experience a good story, I'd read a book or watch a movie. If TLOU succeeds in telling a great story but does not succeed in having great gameplay, then it is an interactive novel; it isn't a game..

  7. I had chills from that ending and started to get that special feeling you get as a kid when Sid turned on HBK or Austin refused to tap out kind of shit... That was fucking amazing. Bray is just on another level from everybody else in terms of promos and acting, and he did his fair share on that one too. Who fucking cares what the motivation was behind what we just saw, we saw it just the same. And thank Christ we did. The commentators shutting the hell up and giving the moment some room to breathe made it even more special. Also, Dutch looking at the titantron with Show behind him was money.

  9. Seriously, Daniel, Muir Woods National Park is perfect. I'll make you so happy. I'll always have your tights cleaned and pressed. I'll always have a birthday present ready for Stephanie and HHH's stupid fucking kids, grandkids, for Vince...all that. And I'll do all the stuff you like...butt stuff, mouth stuff...whatever. I'm ready, Daniel. I'm ready to take this step and go on this journey with you. Andrew Molera State Park is nice too. Whatever.

  10. I like to think the Boogeyman goes everywhere like that; to pick up dry cleaning, to buy cat food, go to the bank, etc. 'I'm the Boogeyman and I'm comin' to get my oil changed!"

  11. "Sir, I have to tell you, this situation is hopeless. Your wife has been in a coma for 16 years. She's shown no signs of improvement. It might be time to consider pulling the plug..." *Kurt Angle breaks through the wall, in his wrestling gear* "Get your lazy ass up! If I won a gold medal with a broken frikking neck, you can wake up from that coma!" *woman's eyes fly open and she sits up*

  17. Whether the angle was aborted or not doesn't matter. This was always going to be the conclusion with Bryan waiting to get Bray alone and then beat the SHIT out of him. HOLY crap was that awesome. I have it on DVR. I think I'll be saving this one. YES.

  18. With that reaction, any booking that *doesn't* involve Bryan winning the Runble and finally dethroning Orton at Mania is fucking retarded.

  19. I'm a little confused by the anti-wait-and-seers jubilation at the truncation of this angle. Doesn't this prove that WWE is actually THINKING about things now, and is willing to change upon further examination? That can't be anything but positive.

  20. It's really easy to be cynical. We just got the payoff to a bunch of stuff. Now there's going to be Bray vs. Bryan somehow at Royal Rumble. Imagine if there's a Bray/Harper/Rowan vs. Bryan in the ring at the same time segment? That's going to be insane. Give credit where credit is due than the "they aborted the angle" thing. All anyone does is gripe about stories not getting endings. Guess what? The story that unfolded is this: Daniel Bryan played into Bray Wyatt's ego and earned his trust to finally get a shot against him one-on-one. He knew Bray was full of it with the "Down With The Machine" stuff and instead wanted to get revenge for all of the 3-on-1 beating he took for a few weeks. He got his chance -- perhaps with the aid of Kane, but we'll see, good cliffhanger -- and took it. Bryan got his revenge. Now I'm sure The Wyatts will do X to get back at him and at Y we'll have some sort of Bryan/Wyatt interactions.

  30. For a moment there, I forgot this lovely thread of death existed, so I'll bring this over from the TV thread... And to follow up: It really must be said for the 10000000000th time: If you want to make a Batman show, then just MAKE A BATMAN SHOW. The viewing public is smart enough to differentiate between the Batman on TV and the Batman in the movies. And of all the major superheroes, he's the one who most easily lends himself to the small screen, because there are virtually no outlandish superpowers to deal with among his core cast. Even the more "out there" characters in his rogues gallery (i.e. Croc, Ivy) could be easily rejiggered to work on a TV budget. Unlike a Superman or X-Men show, you wouldn't have to sacrifice anything that people like about Batman's world to make him fit on the small screen. In some ways, I think Batman is an even better fit for TV than the movies, because the longform storytelling would allow you to delve deeper into his supporting cast, not just of villains but the Bat Family as well, and utilize characters who'll never see the dark of a movie theatre because by the time any film series gets to the point where they would be brought in....boom, time for the reboot. I mean, you're never going to see Barbara Gordon or Tim Drake or Stephanie Brown, and on and on, in a movie. Never. So just make a motherfucking Batman show.

  35. My dream block would be if they took a night each week to run the weekly syndicated shows of multiple promotions from the same time. For example, 8:00 show the World Class weekly show from January 5, 1984, then at 9:00 the WWF Championship Wrestling episode that aired that same week, and then at 10:00 the Crockett show from the same week. Have an in studio host to discuss the events happening in each promotion that week (and other stuff in the news) and I would watch it every week. Personally, having the On Demand section is awesome and I will be using it quite a bit, but at heart I'm still a put something on and make me watch it type of guy so I really hope the old fashioned network portion of the service is top notch. ETA: I figure this is what Monday Night War is all about, but having it for an earlier time frame would be cool, too. Just fantasy booking the Network.

  37. So I'm an uncle now. I'm keeping it on here and not on the Facebook because I'm still waiting for my brother and sister-in-law to take the reins there, but she was born Friday evening and after some oxygen issues that she powered through like a champ, there's a healthy baby girl that has been added to our family. Couldn't be happier!

  40. No, it won't. Any video can be ripped or at worst screen recorded.I'm going to make it my personal mission to report any and all pirated videos after the network launches. If this fails because a bunch if cheap mingebag wrestling fans won't stump up $10 a month I'll be so mad. Man that is some weak ass tattle tale shit. The WWE is a near billion dollar company, that is some sad sorry garbage that you are all fired up to spend your spare time dry snitching for them. I am a man of honor. Righting wrongs as I see them. Hoping each time that the next leap..... will be the leap home.

  41. i don't share a lot about me but in my experience someone else has to know for something to become a reality in my life and the rest of my posse's asleep The shortest possible version of my story is that I buried my father at the start of high school, badly hurt my knee in high school, let myself stay in a shit relationship for five years, and then buried my closest uncle (bought my first guitar) at the end of that relationship and the start of college. Skip ahead a few years and I'm a 360+ pound ex-binge drinker who knows how to write songs. Last year was the first year things have started looking up, with getting into SDSU and finding a group of very intense and creative friends. NOW THE GOOD NEWS: I made two a-few-days-after-new-year's resolutions: play my first show, and get good at yoga. I ordered the DDPYoga set because I guess I'm still a mark, and I'm writing this after doing it the first time. I can do this.

  46. Nope. Lesnar busting Hogan open and wiping the blood across his chest was a huge moment and I'd also argue that JBL wouldn't have gotten as over as he did without the Eddie and Cena bloodbaths. Hell, my all time favorite image of Ric Flair is this - Now im not saying that we should see guys like Bo Dallas blading on NXT or even Ziggler and Sandow blading in a spotfest on RAW, but at shows like TLC, Emlination Chamber and Hell in a Cell? Yeah, I think some crimson in a couple of matches could add to the drama and perception of danger. Most of the 'Best of UFC' fights are the ones where both guys end up busted open so it's definately something that people are ok with seeing. In the kid friendly world of WWE it doesn't make sense to have people bleeding buckets but I think one could argue that the occasional blade job would remind those kids that this stuff is dangerous and people do get hurt. On the provision that it's used sparingly and done safely (HIV/AIDS and Hep checks for everyone on the roster) then Im more than ok with 'blading' making a return.
