  1. How in the hell did Marc Mero become a "famous" inspirational speaker? Who in the hell wants to take life advice from MARC MERO? Counterpoints: 1) he made more money than I'll ever see in my life 2) he got to smash Sable for a bunch of years 3) he's as pretty as a picture 4) he looks just like Little Richard I'll listen to pretty much anything that dude has to say

  5. I really don't think another brand split would fix anything. That was part of the problem that got things off the rails in the first place, in my opinion. Two shows, two world titles, two champions, one show always being the "B" show, one title always being the "B" title, half the PPVs being "B" PPVs & then trying to act like it was a big deal when two mid-card jobbers faced against each other, one from RAW & one from Smackdown. Then the shows feature replays of the other shows & both start with opening diatribes and it just didn't do anything for me. How would that help anything? That just means that instead of watching a 3-hour RAW, which most agree is too long, you would need to tune-in to Smackdown & it's 2-hours instead of just ignoring that it exists. "Bring back the brand split!" is up there with "re-hire Vince Russo!" for me. Just something that I will never be on board with. That's not the problem. You would still have the same creative teams just spread EVEN MORE thin and trying to write for two more hours every week.

  7. I don't get people acting like The Ascension being used this way is some type of disaster. They're shit. They were shit in NXT and they're shit now. They've been in NXT for-fucking-ever, Conor signed in 2005 FFS and it was very much now or never so WWE might as well put them on the big show and see what happens because they need tag teams. I don't get the indignation for this one they're garbage and should be treated accordingly until they prove they aren't. I don't think this has anything to do with whatever feud people are talking about between NXT and the main roster and has everything to do with the fact that, simply, The Ascension are fucking awful.

  11. Even taking the Lana-snogging out of the equation. It's still pretty good: Drive somewhere. Eat everything there. Crush some fucker. Drive somewhere. Eat everything there. Crush some fucker. Adding the "make out with the tallest blondest woman on earth" back in, and substitute "drive" for "sail" and he's basically a Viking if Vikings had instagram.

  16. Funny how letting someone just run into a group of bad guys and start fighting them without fear has that effect. It's almost like an easy and obvious formula that should be un-fuckup-able.

  22. WCW in the early "Monday Night Wars" (ugh) had an excellent three hour formula. First hour was high flyer porn, second hour started with the NWO destroying whatever two masked guys were still left in the ring and setting up the top of the card with the big promo and maybe a scuffle. Then we'd get mid-card/upper mid-card action to build to the last hour. Though certainly, the cliffhanger endings were a bit much. But the show, at its height, always felt like it was on a clear trajectory with a beginning, middle and climactic end. It had distinct acts. Which is ironic, considering how much of a clusterfuck the show was backstage. Of course, WCW had unreal depth, so they could keep it fresh more easily than WWE could now.

  24. You echo my feelings with WWE right now. I've stopped watching the TV shows in the new year because I found myself far more annoyed than entertained when watching them. I'll still go to my bud's house for PPVs but that's about it. I've canceled my Network subscription and will watch NXT with friends once a week. I want to get behind Bryan's comeback but it's so hard knowing they're just going to play the same old fucking games and it's already started.

  29. You lose, jerks. Over on Rural t.v. they are celebrating the 300th episode of QUILT IN A DAY with a special three-part "to be continued" style cliffhanger titled "Nine-patch and stripe Quilts" in which Eleanor will be making TWO QUILTS at once with nine-patches AND stripes!!!! Are you fucking kidding me???? Some have complained in the forums that a three-parter technically means that you can't make the quilt "In a day." WeftWarper1346 wrote "What part of "Quilt IN A DAY" do they not understand? It's not the quilt part, I saw quilts. It must be the "in a day part" because the day is over and the QUILTS ARE NOT!!!!" But others, like TheCaftanAndChenille pointed out that the BluRay will have an option to play all three parts without a break. You can't please everyone. Some trolls in the "IQC" complained over New Year's during the QUILT IN A DAY marathon that technically 144 quilts over a long weekend is "NOT ANYWHERE IN THE VICINITY OF A QUILT IN A DAY!!!!!!!" They paid a hefty FCC fine for that fiasco. So... FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKDISH HAS ME IN AN ANKKLE LOCK RIGHT NOW ANI CANNT MAKE THEO RPES!!!!!

  34. There is just so much dead weight on Raw. It's 3 hours and always runs over by about 15 minutes, but half of it seems like recaps, tedious, needlessly long promos, and other superfluous bullshit. It's amazing that NXT and ROH's weekly shows can have 3 solid matches, a few promos and vignettes that get across whatever they need to all within an hour.

  35. The reason for the brand split is largely about Cena. I get why WWE keeps Cena as the face of the promotion. He brings in tons of dough and is a great ambassador. That's being said, he panders to children and a large percentage of the fans are sick of him and want something different. Why not give it to them? Treat Smackdown as an A-show for adults.

  36. If it was just one of their 36 balls, I'd have to figure malfunction, not cheating. But if it was several... Why when they were just going to run the ball down Indy's throat anyway?

  38. OK, thanks. I have most of the older WWF PPV's on either VHS and/or DVD (the Silvervision tagged classics), some of which are edited down to 2 hours though like WrestleMania 1 & 2 for example, so it would be interesting to see the original broadcasts. I don't know what the original broadcast version of WrestleMania 1 would be like as I think that was closed circuit. I'm not familiar with closed circuit, so would the first Mania have originally aired live in like theater(s)/cinema(s) and it be essentially like watching wrestling at a movie theater on the big screen?. Also from what I remember reading when WWE bought WCW and their tape library, some of the tapes were unlabeled and some in a bad condition and it could be that they haven't come across the masters for the events yet. Or it could be they were just poorly stored, which would have caused them to degrade in quality and that's why they are using the home video versions. I have some of the WCW PPVs on VHS too and ones like for example Superbrawl I is edited down to 2 hours, I think Future Shock '89 is edited down to like 110 minutes, so it would be better if they did maybe clean up the masters if possible, or find them and put them on there instead. Was wondering, are they going to add the old Coliseum videos like the Best of the WWF etc? as I think there might be some matches on them that I'd assume are not on the Network currently. Closed circuit is exactly as you imagine. Around here in the US, there are still some theaters that do that for UFC events. Not sure if any still do it for wrestling. Yeah, WCW didn't store their footage as meticulously as WWE. I think on Great American Bash 89, there's a part where a disclaimer pops up and just says, "we cannot show this part in full due to quality issues" or something along those lines. Still, better than the VHS tape. It seems like WWE tried to go with the original PPV broadcasts as much as they could, but a few events are still the edited home video versions (I think Halloween Havoc 90 is an example).

  39. My question: Where has this been for the last year or so for the main Fox shows? If people don't watch the show, let it be because they just don't want to watch the show. Not because you had no advertising for it or the lack of trying to promote it.

  42. Like most beer snobs who grew up in Texas, I went through a phase of adoring everything Shiner makes, then outgrowing them as I discovered just how broad a category 'craft beer' is. (Still, back in the 90s it was pretty awesome to live in a place where every gas station was guaranteed to have something other than fizzy horse urine.) As their prices have consistently risen in the past 10 years, I find myself drinking less and less of their stuff and almost none of their signature bock, but without them I would probably still be saying "Beer? GROSS." Anyway. Their annual 'birthday beer' for 2015 is a chocolate stout and, like much of their output, it's best described as "tasty but unexceptional." But it's 12-packs of chocolate stout for $13, and at that price it's pretty unbeatable.
