  1. I don’t buy this whole “Bock was gonna be Mr. Perfect “ bullshit. Bock was done then. And if any of you dum dums are actually shitting on Nick Mother Fucking Bockwinkel...Wow. I blame Trump. Because only the sub intelligent population who spend their precious moments away from their sad and depressing lives at the Wrestling Matches, would be booing a man like Nick Bockwinkel. A man who is clearly the better of all other men. These Ham and Eggers, as Bobby is prone to say, are so blinded by their preconceived notions and the utter flim flamery of Verne Gagne and the flawed opinions of the rest

  7. I can understand if people aren't thrilled with the Luke characterization, but I think what people need to realize is that his story in TLJ is Johnson trying to make chicken salad out of the chicken shit Luke that Abrams dreamed up in TFA. HE'S the one who decided Luke would turn coward and flee to the far reaches of the galaxy while the Republic went to shit. JJ dropped that turd in Johnson's lap and left it up to him to explain that bullshit and resolve it in a dramatically satisfying way. And that's the key thing: Once you've made an extreme character decision like that, you can't j

  8. I’d rather watch the roster play weekly 2-on-2 foosball. Make it TV-MA and let Gallows and Anderson host it while getting tanked, doing running commentary like on Talkin’ Shop/Jericho and Austin’s podcasts.

  9. I loved this movie. THIS is what I wanted out of Star Wars when they decided to let new filmmakers play in Lucas's sandbox. Don't just feed me the same shit in slightly different form. Let someone with a fresh perspective come in, tell a story in their unique voice, and maybe even subvert or change our expectations of what a SW movie is. And, you know, if that takes us down a planet's hairy butthole for a trippy mirror sequence of indeterminate purpose or on a wild goose chase through a lost sequence from the Prequel Trilogy, so be it, because the sum is infinitely greater than it's p

  14. i read the article linked earlier. It states that fans want less rules, more hard hits, etc, etc. and the NFL isn't delivering to fans what they want. The current WWE is more focused on safety and concussions and stuff of that nature than ever before. Also, the WWE routinely does not give the fans what they want. why do people think that a Vince Football League will do what he's never been able to do- deliver what other people want to see, NOT what HE wants to see?

  19. Yeah but if Vince did a football version of 205 Live he would book Johnny Manziel as the Tom Brady of the league Somewhere Triple H is trying to figure out the easier way to poison Vince without getting caught. I mean between losing on the millions on the XFL and losing billions in TWO failed Linda campaigns, and try another football league, they might need a piggy bank

  23. Interesting to see how mixed the reaction is. The pro-TFA, anti-TLJ crowd clearly wanted remakes instead of sequels. TFA was a fine introduction to the new characters, but man they just copy and pasted so much from the orginals. This film took some risks and actually passed the torch to these new characters. Is it really just that people didn't like how they handled Luke?

  24. I wouldn't say he was reckless, as much as he's inexperienced and taking a big step up in competition. Ponzinibio seems to be better coached and has a much better grasp of how to set his opponent up. Ponzinibio had a really smart strategy and still got tagged a lot. This was a close competitive fight that Ponzinibio's experience and strategy won, but Perry never looked like he didn't belong and was competitive throughout. Perry is probably ahead of schedule for a 26-year-old who started fighting 3 years ago. He's a hell of a talent, but Ponzinibio is a really good fighter who is really pu

  31. Oh, I can totally see that -- and I am actually listening to him sing right now. I have a close friend who is a total metalhead and yet cannot stand him at all. It's all personal aesthetics, and I like some pretty weird singers, as noted above. But you HAVE to give him all the other things noted: longevity, variety of style, etc. And then I write that and Broken Lamp comes in and crushes it Damn, dude. No fair. We just trying to have fun here...

  32. I'd be fine with this, but I don't think he would be. Especially with the way he's playing now. 5 in a row after last night. You ask him to be the backup and he's asking to be traded. Him and Portis fighting for starting minutes(while Markannen is dealing with his back) may be the best thing to happen to this team. Read a stat that said over the last 3 games the team is +46 when Portis and Nwaba are on the floor together.

  34. Finished it up a couple of hours ago and absolutely loved it. Thought it was the best film since the original trilogy. Loved the twists they did and how they handled Rey and Kylo's characters. I thought this did a much better job of introducing/using the new generation of characters. Its not perfect with a few holes, but nothing for me that was truly big enough to really hurt it. I am left wondering though how they handle things now with Fisher's passing. Feels like it was only just the beginning of the torch passing with her and Poe.

  35. He might be an asshole but he was one of the most knowledgeable radio hosts out there and he had been around forever. Always told interesting stories. His show with his miserable attitude and the dumbass callers made it a highly entertaining listen. WFAN is going to tank without him.

  36. At that time, Vince was giving out shots for lots of big names who were past their prime to make some big money in the hottest thing going. Harley Race is the best example. Bock did one Legends Battle Royal at the Meadowlands and that was it. I’m sure Vince would’ve loved to have him as a performer at one point, but by the time he got there Bock was old. It’s not inconceivable that Vince ran by his ideas about characters at various guys until the right performers came along, and that’s where the rumors come from.

  37. Yeah I think we can close the book on the objective side of best vocalist as far as male singers go. Orbison is probably the only other argument and Freddie would probably step down himself in the face of that one. Subjective thinking though is nuts. For example: Guitar players. Do you really think I'm not gonna pick Tony Iommi, Pig Champion, or Dave Chandler over Alvin Lee? (sorry John)

  38. POWER STRUGGLE 2017 PART TWO Well I would have loved to see the Suzuki/Yano bullrope match just for shits and grins. Don't think I've ever seen Yoh and Sho. The Bucks come out and make fun of the challenge thing then still do it anyway. One of the Jacksons has a case of acne apparently. Anyway! TANAHASHI/IBUSHI (INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE): Today and this week have been pretty fucking garbage so I'm looking forward to seeing Ibushi dumping himself on his head along with hopefully having an awesome professional wrestling match. And boy those tights are tiny, with the cameraman getting an

  40. This is one of the reasons that we moved to the Southwest. I usually wake up to a text from my father, who is still in NY, talking about the low temperatures and the snow. I get to reply that it's sunny and the high is in the 60's. I do the same thing to the sister in Florida. I tell her that it was so cold today that I ALMOST put on pants!

  41. I actually like that. Hereditary blood magic is a limiting and problematic trope, and opening the Force up to anyone is better. And I liked killing Snoke too, frankly. It lets Kylo do something Vader never did, which makes him more compelling and not just a cosplayer. My point isn't that those things are bad, just that they were happy to hint at a lot of deeper things regarding both--and then swerve the other way--so I don't think there's reason to look too deep at that character in particular. It seems more consistent with how the film is written to assume he's just who he is.

  43. Really good action packed episode tonight. Loved the womens four way match. KC Spinelli continues to be one of my favorites every time she's on, Madison has been at her best since returning, plus Sienna and Allie are always top notch. Fun X tag and six man tag with a chaotic ending. Kongo dumping Petey in the crowd ruled. Laurel/Rosemary was pretty good stuff with a big match feel being the main event. Awesome closing seg with Callihan and Konnan as well. Sadly that's it for the year as the next two weeks will be Best of 2017 episodes, so Impact returns on Jan 4 2018 with what looks like

  46. I think a lot of us totally recognize how amazing NJPW has been this year but are just kind of burned out from the hype they're getting everywhere else. The stuff AJPW does is, for me, way more emotional and nourishing just because it's operating on a smaller level but with maximum spirit, and just seems much more in tune with the history of the company than the current bombastic NJPW stuff is. If that sounds like I'm chastising NJPW for being innovative, I'm not---they've had like 50 phenomenal matches this year, but their product is crisp to the point of being manufactured at times. It's the

  47. This whole thing illustrates a recurring coda in Stallone's career: he orchestrates a comeback by reminding audiences that he has a certain charm and DIY outsider artist quality. Then he uses the rebuilt equity to remind everyone that he also has terrible instincts and loves easy paychecks.

  48. Cody sucks, the ROH Bullet Club sucks, the ROH booker sucks, Chris Sabin has sucked for years, and poor Alex Shelley deserves better than being stuck with that chump. Ian Riccobani, overly sympathetic to the babyfaces announcer sucks. Heel Briscoes rule, Dalton Castle fucking rules, Silas Young rules, Cody's fur coat rules. There's your ROH weekly television recap.
