  1. I have zero faith in WWE storytelling. I'm just watching matches by guys I like, and they are producing some great matches. As far as long term stories or planning....i gave up. There isn;t even anything I'm dying to see, but at least I know AJ styles will have awesome matches on the network. Anyway, I'm all for Goldberg vs Lesnar. Seriously....who cares who goes over, or how it helps build anyone....those days are over. I'm down for a freakshow, big hoss match where there is some mystery about how Goldberg will perform.

  11. Meltzer had an anecdote on the last show about how Vince didn't make a play for Sting earlier because he just didn't think Sting was a big deal. The point was the Vince simply could not comprehend that anyone (and this also relates to Goldberg) could be that over without ever being in WWE. Can you imagine the sheer level of self-delusion necessary for that kind of mindset? Like it just did not compute in Vince's head that, if someone was not in WWE/F, he could still be huge and popular with the fans. It's amazing. I always thought it was just a line when Vince said WCW beat them for so long only because they hired ex WWE guys. But holy shit, Vince really believes that. Damn.

  16. I'll concede that WCW maybe doesn't start topping RAW and winning the Monday Night Wars (for awhile) without the WWF defectors. But my personal viewpoint is that WCW was sorta ruined by the arrival of Hogan, Nash, Hall, Russo (oh, god, Russo), etc. I tend to think of WCW as "before Hogan" and "after Hogan". WCW was really damn good in '92 and '93. and got bad really quickly after Hogan arrived As a fan, there's no question in my mind that WCW was better overall before Hogan, the nWo, and Russo. Granted, that's just my opinion. And that's not to say that WCW wasn't watchable after... well, '96, anyway. From a business perspective, Hogan's arrival may have saved the company for awhile. It's entirely possible that, if Hogan and Russo don't come in, the product is better from '95 on. but doesn't catch on and folds even sooner.

  17. I thought it was "The 9th Mayor" of Suplex City at first, so I wondered who the prior 8 were. I mean probably Taz was in there someplace. Iron Sheik had a sweet side salto suplex back in the day, so maybe. I hear Jeff Cobb may give him a run for the 10th mayor spot in '17. Does Gordon Solie call it Suplay City?

  19. I'm not getting that "jump the shark" feeling yet seeing this. I'm still highly entertained by it all. I'll admit the wrestling part of the Great War dragged, but I'd be down with them doing matches solely outside the ring (as it should be) As far as not having much material, I'm not so sure about that. In-ring, sure you can make a case. But we all know the wacky videos they film are where the good stuff is. And if they're looking at a feature film then there's gold to be found there. So I'm not worrying much about this.

  20. Nothing much to add, other than this funny glitch. I was doing MC work but had to wait for someone. So to kill time, I decided to play some darts in my clubhouse and I ended up playing...myself?

  21. I saw Melraz was on playing GTA by himself this morning. While I was waiting for my coffee to brew, I invited him to a party and shot the shit with him until I took a sip...A SIP of coffee...then I had to go shoot the shit with the toilet (poop joke #1, don't worry, there will be a dick joke somewhere in this mess). Nate being the good guy that he is, tells me about all the stuff that just dropped for GTA 5 the other day. I had no idea. This is the second time I've been to the board since my third heart attack at the beginning of September. I've been trying to lay off the video games so much, but I've played a bit of Destiny since the new expansion came out (the new raid is super easy, Iron Banner is happening this week too, spoiler alert, Efrideet is running all things IB now). I've been exercising (went for a hike today, it's southern WV during autumn...absolutely beautiful outside), trying to eat healthier (for instance banana for breakfast, tuna (in water) for lunch, organic pasta sauce over vegetables for dinner), and I quit smoking cigarettes 5 weeks ago today (which was the day I had the heart attack). Pud tugging is over (told you there'd be a dick joke), I can get on with the GTA story. So Nate is tellling me about this update, and I find my disc. I'm helping him get supplies for his counterfeit operation and he lets me know you can have a weed business. I still have over $12 million in the bank after buying the yacht, not to mention all the Adders on my 2nd character on here so I say fuckit, whynot right? I go balls deep & buy a clubhouse with upgrades about two blocks down from Trevor. I only had 5 bikes for my clubhouse, and that simply wouldn't do. I had to buy 5 more bikes, and upgrade those sumbitches...go big or go home right? Around this time I notice for some reason there is a large geriatric group congregating outside my clubhouse...I don't know why. I've blown them up multiple times, Damien has killed them all with a hatchet, fuckers keep coming back. I buy into the weed business, upgrade that, then I'm off to get supplies. Just like that I'm sucked back in. Talked to Robert for a bit. I probably should have listened to Nate and sold my product a little early while he was still on. We kept getting shit canned lobbies where it would wipe everbody out so you could get some work done (the MC missions pay decent, but theres a lot of "drive here, do X, drive way the fuck off" involved with them and the supply runs). I wanted to see how much I COULD earn if I waited until my stock was full before I tried to sell. It should have been over $250k, but...it spawned three choppers for Damien and me to make deliveries. When I started the "sell" portion, there were only 3 people in the lobby counting Damien and myself, that changed VERY quickly. By the time I got to the choppers Damien had already gotten killed once by another player, and the lobby was about half full. I hadn't really fucked with anyone besides NPC's all day. I gave everyone a wide birth to do their thing while I ran supplies, did club missions and fucked off on motor cycles. I deliver 1/3 of the product, coming back around to pick up chopper #3 (damien was finally working on #2 at this point), and this happens: for perspective on the 2nd rpg kill, since it's from Damien's activity feed and this is my first attempt at this sort of thing with youtube I couldn't splice this video into the longer video above....plus it's 5am and I've been up for 22.5 hours at this point. I still made right at $200k on that, and the plants still grow even while I'm not there, or logged into the game. I just need to keep supplies up. Ended the night in a lobby with a mic-less RUkered, he was able to see the grow operation. I clipped a bunch of stuff today, I could have probably made a longer video, and may still. TL;DR I sent $4.5 mil in game today, made $300k back...and just beat the breaks off BlitheredCow or whatever his name was. P.S. The mugger got him fwiw, but he didn't have any money ;'(

  22. Matt Hardy is in "Season 5 of a popular sitcom" mode right now. He hasn't jumped the shark yet but a lot of the novelty has worn off and now he's enjoying the height of his popularity, but if he's not careful things might start to get stale or comfortable.

  24. My mother-in-law was hit by a van last Friday. She came to town for a visit. We took her immediately from the airport to her favorite place to eat in Philly. I have no idea what happened but I heard a loud van and then my wife scream. I ran across the street. The only feeling worse than "I'm going to see my mother-in-law die" is "my wife is going to watch her mom die." Thankfully, that didn't happen. But she was banged up real bad. She somehow stayed conscious but her leg was Paul George/Kevin Ware/Joe Theismann bad. She's a tough lady and is totally herself. But she's stuck in the hospital for a few weeks. She's already had one surgery on her leg and is going to need at least another. And she broke some vertebrae in her back. There's no threat of paralysis but it's really painful. And there are also some broken ribs. We have no idea how long she'll be in the hospital. Her house is also pretty much on a direct collision course for Matthew. So we had to scramble up here and make sure someone took the precautionary measures. It's maybe a blessing she's up here and doesn't have to ride out the storm. But it's still really rough knowing your house might be destroyed. Count your blessings and always know that your life can really change at any given second without any hint of a warning. And also get a list (or make sure your parents have a list on them at all times) of prescriptions you may take regularly. We had to scramble for that, but that's something doctors need to know because of interactions.

  25. Three of us were on this afternoon playing Welcome Wagon - someone would come.into the room and we'd be there to greet them. Then they'd leave. Dunno why. We also researched a new sticky bomb delivery service involving getting an airplane to balance on the roof of an SUV. More research is needed.

  34. It really shouldn't be this hard to acquire bullpen help but it's been two years in a row with brutal depth out there. I hope Liriano is okay because he's the only reliever out there I kind of trust and he can eat up innings while bridging to Osuna. Cleveland has such a great team even with the key injuries. They were being sold short big time by prognosticators going into this match-up. I fucking hate their nickname and the half-measures they've taken on that front though.

  35. How is Dolph a victim of 50/50 booking? He's not a guy good enough to anchor a show or promotion. He's good enough to have some really special moments -- the Survivor Series match, his title win and his fun pairing with AJ and Big E come to mind. He's not good enough to be a guy in a string of main events. He's also a good guy to put other people over. He's essentially the definitive "solid hand" of his generation. There's nothing wrong with that role at all. He probably doesn't like it, but what quasi-athlete wants to be told that? He's exactly the type of person should be in 50/50 booking. He gets some big wins. He gets some big losses. But he's consistent in his effort. I get why some people don't like him but I think he's a fun worker and he's really brought some emotion lately.
