    Tunsil literally just hit his dream job and found out that someone is actually out to destroy his life in a supervillain one of way in the same day. I hope he lasts fifteen years and becomes a hall of famer. Cause fuck whoever is after him like this.

    In the end, all of them made bad choices. Chyna had emotional issues from the beginning, and she likely would have been in therapy/on medication no matter who she was with or what she chose as a career. Being that her career at the time was pro wrestling, it accelerated her problems. That the other woman involved was the boss' daughter and she had no recourse only made things worse in Chyna's fragile psyche. In about one year, she went from being a pretty big-time celebrity with a loving live-in boyfriend to said boyfriend dumping her for a rich girl and losing her career over it. Again, that's likely how Chyna felt regardless of what actually happened. Perception equals reality. If she believed it, it was true. And so the two things that meant the most to her were gone. She felt like she was left with nothing when everyone else lived happily ever after. And all those feelings of being the so-called ugly duckling resurfaced tenfold. The issue isn't that Hunter decided to be with Stephanie. I can certainly appreciate Chyna's hurt over that, but that choice is made every day by lots of people. The problem is that it's pretty clear Hunter hadn't formally ended things with Chyna, meaning that he was essentially cheating on her. Now, Hunter may not see it that way. He may feel that he had emotionally detached himself from that relationship. Maybe he even told Chyna in so many words that they were over. But communication broke down somewhere along the way. Hunter had to have known what Chyna's mindset would be over this. He wasn't responsible for her mental health, but I wonder how clear and firm he was in letting Chyna know everything. There was simply no way for Chyna to stay with WWF/WWE after the breakup. Not with her issues, not with her probably feeling stupid about the whole situation. Not with seemingly everyone else knowing about Trips/Steph before her. The environment was too toxic, and she would have to leave sooner rather than later, though it could have been on better terms. And none of this factors in Stephanie's possible behavior during this time. I'm not accusing her of anything, but we just don't know how she handled all this. She was fairly young at the time, so it wouldn't be a surprise if she was something of a brat about it--but even saying that with qualifiers is unfair to her. I don't think any of the three handled the situation just right. But only two had the psychological resources to deal with the pressure. And the one who didn't had no one who knew how to truly help her navigate those choppy waters. Even if HHH wanted to help her, Chyna accused him of some nasty stuff, none of which can be proven and only came from a long-suffering ex looking to lash out. Bridges were burned and now have no chance to be rebuilt. Chyna is a classic example of someone who didn't start herself out on the wrong road, but also didn't take the best detour to stop her descent. I think she did try to move forward, to be happy. But her psyche was so damaged at that point. Only long-term hospitalization would have likely helped, and that didn't seem to ever be an option for her or anyone close to her. A lovely person couldn't get past her demons and lost the war of life. That's all that really matters. And it's very sad that she couldn't see herself as the wonderful woman she clearly was.

    Also, claiming Brian Burke is a totally neutral observer is the most blatant attempt at trolling me anyone has made in 2016 so far, and I salute you for the effort. You're a good fellow.

    The dude is a genius. He parlayed a babysitting gig with the greatest team ever in to a head coaching job for multiple years. He will literally never be a hotter commodity. This is like when the 9th man on an NBA champion leaves to sign with the Bucks for 3/31m. Sure, he's going to be terrible and he won't win any games, but you gotta take the cash when you can get it. People don't offer to pay you millions of dollars every day.

    CANADIAN David Onyemata goes to the New Orleans Saints in the fourth round. A rare CIS pick and the first ever Manitoba Bison selected in the NFL draft. Nobody cares about this but me probably but there you go.

    Thank you so much! I haven't seen Garvin at the Von Erich Ranch in almost 20 years and I forgot how golden it was. Jimmy was just fantsstic... And man, those Von Erich's were dicks.

    This talk made me go back to the Von Erich's ranch segment, which is still funny, and I proceeded to the Sunshine vs. Precious feud which Sunshine just slays. She gets on the mic and blows everyone out of the water (and btw, she is about ten times hotter than Jimmy's actual wife). You gotta love her talking about "the tapes", "the medical records", "I did things for you that I wouldn't have ever done"; makes Garvin look super sleazy because your gears start turning about what the tapes and the things are -- likely of a sexual nature. EDIT: Oh yeah, this stuff also aired on a Christian network! The '80s were a different time...

    I've re-watched it six times now just to try and get it in perspective (one tends to over-rate the most recently viewed stuff just because the details are freshest in one's mind); thing is, this holds up. Probably in my top-five all-time. Just improvable, sure one might have wished for a deeper backstory and feud, but for what it was, the farewell match of a beloved babyface and the introduction of a soon-to-be equally beloved champion, it was perfect. Zayn looked super strong in defeat and Nakamura won over the crowd as only he can. The crowd certainly helped. but you could have had this match in an empty arena and it still would have hit *****; both guys were just so perfectly in their respective grooves that you would think that they had a history of working with each for years ala Sami and KO. I'll keep my rating to "top five", but the truth is I've got a feeling that in one year, three years, five years, etc. I'll still feel equally strongly about this match. Just about as close to perfect on all levels as you can get. When you factor in the lack of experience working together it's just fucking amazing. I used to marvel at the those matches that traveling champs Harley Race and Ric Flair could pull off with guys in different territories that they had maybe worked with a handful of times or not at all, and this trumped anything that I've seen previously. Just amazing.

    Listen. Snow zombies resurrecting the dead and massacring frontier settlements is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses; not from some horrible icy genocide. You can't expect to wield supreme power just ‘cause some popsicle with arms tried to tear your head off. I mean, if I went around saying I was a king just because some frostbitten weirdo had lobbed a snowball at me, they'd put me away!

    Since the EPSN Poll is hilariously one-sided. 70/30%. I figured I would do the same poll here. Own your vote. I barely watch the NBA now, but I watched it a lot more in Jordan's era and I'd still choose Golden State because they just seem to be a way better overall team. Once you get past Jordan, and a 2nd tier Pippen you just have a lot of random pieces that all clicked. Golden State seems to have a lot better overall actual team as well as starting lineup. Now, their defense is another story.

    I can shed some light on the Sunshine press conference insinuations. It wasn't as sleazy as you think... "The tapes" refer to Garvin's entrance to World Class, his gimmick was initially where he would come to ringside during other matches and would tape them with a home movie camera. He also initially refused to wrestle on TV because he did not want his opponents to have the same advantage he did: able to study and find weaknesses.

    It's a shame too because I like Ciara Renee but some of the material...ooft. in general the whole cast is great so it's frustrating when some of them get bogged down by bad/tropey writing. Also I hated the way they dragged shit out. Like. It's Hawkman. Just kill him and the next one will be fine. Jesus.

    I was always a big fan of the Jimmy Garvin/Precious pairing whether he was a heel or face. As a heel, he kind of had that Miz thing going where he called himself Gorgeous when he clearly wasn't but he had a hot (for the 80's anyway) wife that you couldn't have. As a face, he was the loving husband fending off sleazeballs like Flair who insulted his wife.

    I highly recommend the book Crazy '08, by Cait Murphy, it follows the whole season and pretty much makes the case for it being the best season of baseball ever. The AL race was tight as well, with the Tigers winning by half a game over Cleveland and 1 and a half over the White Sox. The Pirates only finished a game out of the NL too.

    What's strange about Rusev and Lana now is that a year ago the crowd (men anyway) wanted Lana to turn face and Rusev to stay heel. Now I'd say they would accept Rusev as a face, but not Lana who is now firmly a heel. Rusev's whole run up to Cena was sublime and I weep for the days where I thought he could have a 25 minute main event match with Brock in his future. Instead he got a 5 minute squash on a house show. I hope he bought a nice house like Shannon Moore.

    Not sure how she could have slowed down more than being at a complete stop, which is what she had to do. It's not her fault she trained for years with people that don't have to think about how they're gonna run across the ring. It's not Eva Marie's fault that WWE continues to put her in a position where the only outcome is her failure, but I'm not gonna throw heaps of blame on Asuka for that either.

    Melbourne, Aus. I will say this. If the goal was to make you want to see the new Spiderman film, they smash it out the park ten times over. One of the best cameos ever. New Black Panther film? Ehh, not so much.
