  4. @bobholly138. Congratulations to your son who can skip ninth grade so if he chooses. @RazorbladeKiss87. I'm very sorry for your loss. Glad the gentlemen from the funeral home was a pro, that's what you need at the saddest of times. @BrianS81177. Sorry about your Granddad's Parkinson's. A horrible thing to have and to see what it does. My Grandad had it longer than anyone where I live, 27 years. Conggratulations, @Stefanie the Human. @Eivion, hope your Dad's feeling better. I find it a dilemma whether to tell people how I'm doing or not because I've good and bad experiences

  5. I think the long and the short of it is the most of WWE mainstream programming is just bad TV. The only people left watching it are those that love wrestling, and the cool stuff wrestlers do is it. If there was a show on tv with as many terrible story lines and fake characters with horribly scripted lines as Raw that wasn't pro wrestling it would be cancelled in two minutes because nobody would watch it.

  6. I find this to be overblown. The final season was an overwhelming drop in quality and people were dissatisfied, but the criticisms to the criticism are probably just as bad. It is OK to say something sucks, when it sucks, especially when you've invested years into that product. There are people who went overboard, but the vast majority of the criticisms of the final season of Game of Thrones are more than valid. They started their home run trot before the ball went of the fence and it showed. Onto @Burgundy LaRue's point. Caring about something either brings you great joy or great

  7. I wanna bring this back because ponytail Flair used to be my avatar. Then I was saying he could be the secret last boss on King of Fighters. Then I believe Bix had it as an avatar for a while. I mostly believe that ponytail Flair is awesome.

  9. The "Nacho Libre" thing aside, there was a genuinely awesome plug during the USC game on FS1, as during a replay where they were discussing whether a tackle was actually an illegal slam, that announcer spontaneously transitioned with "and to find out what IS a legal slam, tune into WWE Smackdown on FOX, debuting Friday night October 4th!" It was delivered in a way where even his fellow announcer afterwards said "wow, that was good."

  11. Killing kayfabe killed real heels. Why am I going to boo Alexa Bliss after hearing about her eating disorder? Why would I boo Corbin for not coming from the indy scene? Daniel Bryan nailed being a heel because he ramped his personality up to 11 but even then, a massive chunk of the fan base agreed with his points about the environment and wealth distribution and sustainability. Why am I booing the guy that wants to leave a better world for his kids?

  13. I'm fine with someone not enjoying the same things as me. I don't think WWE is perfect. The problem is when I or others present another side, one that could be part of a wider discussion. It's dismissed because so many are jaded about the topic. It stops being fun talking about it. Why ask for another viewpoint, then brush off that POV when given? I can sometimes tell if someone and I aren't far off in our takes. We're just coming from different perspectives. But something gets lost during the conversation. Then we both end up angry. FYI to some folks: it doesn't help throwing

  15. I'd rather pyro just be used on PPVs or the big 4 or 5 PPV shows. For as much as it sounded like the pyro cost every week, I'd rather that money be used for paying the wrestlers more or at least covering their transportation and room and board expenses.

  18. Honestly dude, enough. Every post is just "blah blah blah eeeeeeeeevil smarks blah blah blah." Did a smark run over your dog or something? You legit blame some mythical strawman version of smart fans -- which you have completely made up in your mind -- for all that's wrong with wrestling today. You generalize the thoughts, motivations, wants, etc of a whole group of fans, and treat it as some monolithic entity that is somehow ruining the business. Nothing personal, man, but god damn. It gets so tiresome when every argument of yours boils down to "these people (whom I've never met and hav

  21. In truth, I'm having a bit of a lark, and of course one major problem is WWE booking over the last, oh, fifteen(?), years. That said, I also think excess and escalation (especially as it pertains to choreography) are issues, sure. But I'm not totally facetious here. There are genres in this world that get broken by history or developments. I really like ERB's John Carter of Mars pulps, but part of what made them operate was scientific ignorance and what we've learned since prevents new iterations of that sort of Sci Fi. I'm not going to 100% say that it was 100% "hard" sci fi in 1912, bu

  22. It's really quite sad. If you had told me 5 years ago that there would be a promotion that had Ricochet, Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, Shinsuke Nakamura, Cedric Alexander, Rey Mistero, Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens and Cesaro all in it and that I would be completely bored with and uninterested in it I would have told you that you were nuts because how could anyone not put on a red hot show with that much talent. But here we are.

  24. I'd say season 8 is worse by far, but the show started down a terrible path when they got further than the books. The entire Dorne plot, Barriston Selmy, and the Sansa/Ramsay marriage were all signs of things to come.

  25. Oh man, way too much King Reina going on there. This is a good thing. Other image of her also in pink camo in a spoiler tag due to size. Still waiting on Reina to do pro wrestling. Hana's match with Momo was good but I'm not as high on Momo as most seem to be. I'm glad they pulled the trigger on pushing Hana now that she's under a proper contract though.

  26. You do realize that the blamelessness and sense of justification is a human being thing, rather than a wrestling fan thing, right? Thieves don't steal because they're evil, they steal because it's not fair that other people get to gave things. Thugs don't hit people because they're violent by nature, they hit people who provoke them and therefore deserve a beating. Et cetera.

  27. Sid was a legend. A great character actor, a star in blaxploitation films, television (he played 8 different villains on Mission Impossible!), Roger Corman movies, and even a Bond movie. He was a favorite of both Tarantino and Rob Zombie (Sid once said he would sign on for any movie either of them did, without even asking what the role was) He was one of the all-time great heavies in film and tv. A large man with a booming voice, dripping with charisma, able to switch from genial to menacing instantly, sometimes in the middle of a line. I knew this was coming from what I heard

  28. Now we know who has Craig H blocked. I switched cable providers in July. The channel that airs Raw and Smackdown is no longer part of my package, and they wanted an extra 10 dollars a month for it. The channel shows pretty nothing else worth watching, so I took a pass. I haven't watched Raw or Smackdown in over two months. I catch clips of stuff I want to see on WWE's youtube page. If you don't like a show, it's very easy to just not watch it.

  29. I'm digging the Villain Enterprises vs LifeBlood feud- just because it gets guys like Mark Haskins in fun tag matches as opposed to indie dream matches and I can dig his offense against really good rudos. Haskins and Bandido is waay more fun than they ever ought to be, and one can thank Scurll and King.

  31. Sounds like they got the mix right first time out, that's terrific! I was going to say be very careful as there's a commonly prescribed blood pressure drug that has a really nasty side effect if the subject has any sort of kidney problems; basically it causes full-on renal shut-down. Been there, done that, saw the movie, was not fun... It's funny that one of the main indicators that you aren't getting enough serotonin in your system is physical pain, but at least that's hard to ignore. Energy is a very useful indicator of where you're at, I'm not saying that you need to be bouncing off the wa

  33. So I’m on the meds now. They include some stuff to treat my kidneys and blood pressure, a vitamin D supplement, and a higher dose of the Zoloft I was taking that wasn’t cutting it. (Did you know they can find your serotonin levels in bloodwork? I didn’t until a few weeks ago.) The Zoloft seems to be working. I’m not constantly aching and depressed anymore, and I actually have the energy to do stuff now. It’s weird. I’ve actually started doing some much-needed cleaning around the house and car, and soon I’ll probably be doing UberEats deliveries again for extra spending money/to pay down m
