  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

  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...

  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 vide

  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 hospi

  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.

  36. Re: UFC 206 You can probably expect an announcement from GSP sometime next week on his status. Sounds like we have quite a contract conundrum as it relates to sponsorship.

  37. Didn't think we'd see Edwards as champ and not get destroyed by Lashley. Assuming TNA goes on for a little while I'm liking this direction. Always liked Eddie and the times I met him he was a awesome guy so good for him.

  38. From what I remember reading, they were going to have him be their dealer but Grimes got injured/fired/whatever before they could get the angle going. Droz and Albert were doing their forced piercing/tattoo gimmick at the time. Also,Russo wanted to reveal that it was Droz who was supplying Hawk with drugs during the "Hawk is an addict" storyline that culminated with Droz "pushing" Hawk off the Titantron. IIRC, Hawk would've gone to (storyline) rehab and then reveal that Droz was a pusher in more ways than one. See, he pushed Hawk off the Titantron and was also pushing drugs on him. Get it? God

  40. Old rasslin card from Kansas, KS on this date in 1978. Who no sold more? Brody or Bruiser? Also would you ever see a show with three guys with the same character name on it in this day and age? . Also on this date in Lexington, KY. Spoilered for size. How the hell did Lou Thesz find himself working these southern cards?

  41. OCTOBER 1 001. Cujo: I had somehow never seen this, and it was about to roll off Netflix Streaming, so I went the Stephen King adaptation as my first entry for October 2016. It's pretty standard, with the dog and Danny Pintauro being the best actors in the film. Gotta say, Dee Wallace Stone is on my shit list for being one of the worst movie parents I've ever seen. She cheats on her husband with his longtime friend who turns out to be an obsessive asshole. She treats her kid like a bag of potatoes, as is she can't really be bothered to actually care about him. She screams at poor Tad
