    This is me going way too school teacher on everyone but feel like saying it. Sorry in advance. I read Pure Dynamite and everyone else should even though it makes you feel pretty shitty a lot of the time. Good wrestling stories too but that's not what I pulled out of it. It kind of shows how just being miserable as a personality trait just fucking destroys you. We all get kind of shitty sometimes but you gotta get yourself out of it before it defines you. Almost every post here is about how shitty a person Tom was. Don't let that be all everyone says about you. Get help, do what you gotta do, but don't remain miserable and shut out everyone who cares.

    I don't know if it is because wrestling companies can't do basic story telling now. But watching 94/95 WCW and I am really enjoying it. Stories that make sense within their own world, clearly defined characters and decent action. I suppose the Dungeon Of Doom is silly, but compared to Lucha Underground and other indies, it is UWFI. Going out and aggressively signing talent like Malenko, Benoit and Eddy along with the luchadors was a great move. Kevin Sullivan knew what the the company needed and how to satisfy various egos. That WCW went to hell after getting rid of him in creative says a lot. I think he could have righted things in 2000, since he was not trying to fix things over night.

    I am so into the Iconics shtick. I love everything they do. They are such fucking assholes, and I love watching them get beat up after running their mouths. I hope they never turn. I want them to be total shitheads forever.

    I read Pure Dynamite about nine years ago. I've known people worse than Dynamite with none of the pluses. To his credit he owned up to bad things he did, probably too much. Without the anger and pain, we would not know who he is and maybe he would be happy. Or maybe he would still be miserable. But that is life isn't it, we live with the choices we make. Whatever the case, Dynamite paid for every bad thing he did. But good or bad we end up in the grave. As a talent you can't really deny him. Every undersized wrestler owes him a debt. He had a good mind for wrestling. Unlike a lot of talent, he did not only care about carbon copies of himself. He could see the value in every type of wrestler. I'm disappointed the turn this thread took. I don't think we needed a crash course in the bad things he did.

    Daniel Bryan, radical ecologist, is one of those jokes that lands best because it lands really, really close for me. Graves needs to start quoting Earth Crisis.

    It's easy to look and back and say that Dynamite should've toned it down in the ring. But in most fields of sports and entertainment, being afraid to go too far often means you won't go far enough. I mean, let's be honest. How many people would pay to see a guy who's 5'8 do nothing but stomps and headlocks? It would seem that the only reliable means of getting over without taking significant risks in the ring are to possess freakish size/strength or a physique that's impossible to maintain year-round through natural means. And going either of those routes will most likely lead to your body turning on you eventually. Bottom line, if you want to make it in wrestling, you're going to have to pay the piper one way or another. Hiroshi Tanahashi said it best: people won't buy into wrestlers who want to have a long and healthy life.

    Dynamite is kind of pro wrestling in the form of a person, isn’t he? All the good and bad that that entails in human form.

    Really enjoyed Dakota vs Shayna. Dakota sold me on the fact that she'd had enough of Shayna's shit and wasn't dealing with it anymore.

    Smash Brothers is about as fun of a game as you'll ever play, but it's appeal is kind of inexplicable. It is a 4-player fighting game where you try to knock your opponents off the edge of the stage. It is super simple, so a complete novice feels like they can compete, but the gameplay is so tight and responsive that you can get really good at it. Four friends, a couple of drinks, and Smash Brothers is guaranteed hours of fun.

    Probably because I'm a person with many, many interests I find the single-minded overachiever to be a fascinating subject, my favorite baseball players include well-known pricks like Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, and Steve Carlton. Three more unpleasant people you'd have a hard time finding; you'd also have a hard time finding three people better at what they chose to do. Wrestling, yeah, DK, Misawa, and Jumbo are my Holy Trinity. One died in the ring and one busted himself up so badly that he was in a wheelchair while I was out playing softball. (Yeah, I'm a year older than DK, but I didn't turn my bones into jelly trying entertain a bunch of marks.) Had DK not been so driven, (and I first got to see him live in Portland), wrestling would still be just lumbering oafs doing punch-punch, kick-kick, go for the absurd finish.

    Hey, I don't know about you guys, but I can't review a post-92 Misawa match without using the word "excess" 6 times.

    School is going well and I still have no idea what I am going to do with it. Mickey Mantle once said if he knew he would live so long, he would have taken care of himself. When I was nineteen I thought I had no future. No matter what I was just trying to run the clock out. I took care of my family and friends, but I did not care if I died. Even my writing was/is a hobby to give me a creative output. Some numb nut on here thought I was doing it to make money. Yeah I am living large on that thirty eight cents I got last month. But now I have a support system and people who think I am worth something. So I am trying to plan a future late in the game. I have created a savings account and have a plan to put a decent amount of money away. I now have good credit, so I might be able to buy a house. I can have something tangible to leave my family one day.

    Punishnent Martinez rules. That is one of the best ridiculous wrestling names ever. “Hey! I’m Punishment, it’s nice to meet you.” His theme music sounds like a Suicide b-Side. I also went to a random Puerto Rican hardcore show when I was in college and Punishment looked like all those dudes. All in on a maniacal post-punk fan of Puerto Rican heritage with striking abilities.

    You're going to get honesty one way or another when people pass away, Vic, it's just the nature of how these things are. If people weren't honest about how they felt about him, this thread would be pretty empty and full of meaningless platitudes. No one wants to actively bash the dead, but if that's how they view the person, they have every right to express it in a public forum if they so choose. That's how I feel anyway. Take the good with the bad if there's a lot of it.

I respect the hell outta Buddy Murphy, Drew Gulak... these guys... but someone needs to sit down with fuckin' Mustafa Ali and tell him to calm the fuck down because only 7 of the 17 people watchin' the show give a fuck!"

    Holy shit yeah good times. If y'all want to piss off a whole lot of NPC go to Braithwaite manor and have fun. Robert and I spent most of the night just farting around. It was good times. I think next time we're gonna try to derail the train. Yeah I don't know 1 eminem song. It was actually 2 names. I'm with Robert, I pictured an old married couple sitting side by side with matching shirts, greasy ass unshampooed hair, Cheetos covering their face and hands and giving each other a kiss when they killed somebody and a smack when they got killed. I guess the reason I pictured this is, it's what I long for.

    I'm in danger of not seeing a wrestling show all calendar year for the first time since *crunches numbers* Jesus, 1991? This might save the streak.

    Spaghetti and meatballs? Given how we are with player names, I'm gonna assume y'all fought people named Spartacus and Metropolis. And Robert, you have no idea how much I want to see what your character looks like. I laugh every time I read "Reba meth addict." Be prepared for me to sing Fancy the first time we get to play together. Either that or "That's the night that the lights went out in Saint Denis."

    God, I hope everyone makes weight and doesn't get hurt. These two main events are totally fucking sick. I can't wait for the card. Two guys at the top of their game going at it and two ladies that are bona fide killers in the ring about to kick the living shit out of each other.

    Kelvin Torve, bench player, wore 24 in 1990 for the Mets before Rickey did, so yeah, I don't get what people are bitching about Cano wearing 24 on a team that hasn't retired 24.

    My biggest hope is UCF beats LSU and continues to mega-troll college football and the NCAA. Because you can already make the case that whatever the NCAA playoff system is, it doesn't involve them, no matter what anyone says to the contrary.

    They've spent too much time building Bianca for her to be brushed aside. Not to mention she's been wrestling for only 2.5 years and brings a lot to the table already.

    Dio Magica II & III Dio released Magica in 2000, and it was the best studio album featuring Ronnie James Dio since 1992's Black Sabbath Dehumanizer. It was the best Dio album since at least Sacred Heart in 85 if not The Last in Line in 84. It was a concept album, and almost immediately Ronnie started talking about the sequels. Then in 2002, the solid but unspectacular Killing the Dragon. More talk of the sequels, in 2004 the solid but unspectacular Master of the Moon was released. Big tour, Holy Diver live album, but no Magica follow up. In 2007 he re-reunited with Black Sabbath as Heaven & Hell for three new tracks on a greatest hits collection and a tour. Magica sequels after the tour. During the tour, him and Tony decided to do an album together. Now, 2009's The Devil You Know got my first place vote on our best of the 00's ballot, so I'm not complaining. He announced he'd begin serious work on II & III after the tour, but stomach cancer got him. He was writing for the albums right up until just before his death. One track came out from Magica II, on the now out of print Magica deluxe edition. His wife says she has at least three unreleased songs, but I don't think she ever said if they are from II or just random tracks. This one will, obviously, never be finished but it'll always break my heart.
