  4. My grandfather tested positive last night. 81 years old with over a half dozen heart attacks under his belt. They sent him home to wait it out - tough old fucker's already had it for about a week apparently. Talked to him on Monday and his update was simply "Ahh, just got a touch of something, kid." If you're religious say your prayers, if you're not, send your vibes. Thanks all.

  6. Spring Stampede 1994 is probably the best PPV in WCW history top to bottom. Even the Muta/Austin match which Meltzer shitted on in the Observer is a pretty good. IMO it (along with Flair/Steamboat and Regal/Pillman) was a nice change of pace considering all the insanity (the infamous Chicago Street Fight, Sting/Rude, Dustin/Bunkhouse Buck, & Vader/The Boss) on most of the card. Vader vs. The Boss is one of the hossiest hoss matches of all time. They beat the tar out of each other and Vader ends up bleeding. Dustin bled for the sake of humanity. Sting vs. Rude had a ton of heat (based on wh

  11. All I know is now the idea of Roman in AEW and out from under Vince’s thumb is in my head, and that impossible dream has me horny for wrestling. Really, is there a bigger indictment of McMahon booking than him so badly mismanaging the top guy he’s most committed to? It’s bananas.

  18. Here's an excerpt from an interview I did with Bad News back in 2004: One other thing I’ve always wondered, how did your family react to Roddy Piper painting himself half black? My family didn’t like it, I didn’t like it, but him and Vince thought it was a great idea. I figured that if he was going to do that he was taking his life into his own hands, plus I didn’t like Piper anyway, he was a racist, so I figured if he got beat up for it or whatever, he deserved it. What were they going for there? I have no idea. I don’t know if it was just to make fun of us, I don’t know w

  20. After his blind Twitter defense of WWE after Dean Ambrose left, if Seth Rollins ever gets fired from WWE, I always imagined he would be outside the arena, watching glumly as his bag and gear are tossed out of the dressing room onto the street, and standing behind him is the nerd from Robot Chicken: Nerd: "This is awesome! Now you're finally free to go full time with AEW and New Japan! I can't wait to watch Jon Moxley suplex you into a barbed wire spider web, or for you to work 40-minutes night in, night out against Sanada, Okada, and Tanahashi during the G1 Climax!!!"

  21. Is this about Roman? Because that dude would get a fat AEW contract, cut loose and look more like a star than he ever did in WWE. He'd never need to think about MLW or Impact. Also, Roman Reigns working an Osprey-Red style match would be dumb as dirt. Him not working like that is a feature, not a bug.

  22. Keep in mind, Vince co-wrote a movie where a morally bankrupt wrestling promoter kidnapped the girlfriend of America's biggest wrestling star AND had the guy's younger brother crippled and put into a wheelchair in order to pressure him into working a match. If I'm Roman, I'm sending my daughter to live with distant relatives in Samoa until all this blows over.

  24. I think you could convert a few people who are about moves. But that movement probably isn’t enough to justify it. A lot of Roman’s usefulness comes from the company man and product of the system stink he has on him. That makes for good conflicts with talents who don’t have that reputation. I don’t want “workrate fanatics” to like Roman more — I want the opposite, because it makes for more interesting crowd reactions and matches.

  26. I doubt this is the case. The Punk interview and how they've booked him killed him. Plus he's just a fine/pretty good promo and an uninteresting character for the most part. He looks cool and is good in the ring.

  27. Finished up the day 16 with two more matches. The Barbarian making his solo debut, I believe, Heenan as his manager. And he's here to squash Tito, or, I believed this was squash until I actually rewatched it. I literally could count the number of offensive moves the Barbarian made on one hand. Seriously, this was 90% Santana, he makes a mistake, and Barbarian basically flukes into a win. Also of note is a NASTY flying clothesline that Barbie uses to win the match. I winced when I saw it, and on the replay, it clearly shows Barb saying "shit" right after and looked like he was apologiz

  30. Well yeah, it's pretty obvious they don't want to face stockholders due to that revelation, the fact that they continue to hold shows despite how bad it makes the company look, and probably a bunch of other things (like facing tough questions about the company's profitability moving forward?). But to hide behind coronavrus is fucking shameful and disgustingly transparent. This is the company who took pride in running a show days after 9/11, and now they won't do a conference call because of coronavirus? Please. And filing for XFL bankruptcy a few weeks in like this is like the scene in

  31. Bad News had really bad knees so the chances of someone like Smash jacking one of them up during a take down is plausible. Also the super jacked guys like Muraco, Herc and Reed would be so gassed after 30 seconds whoever they fought could use the Homer Simpson method and push them over for the KO win.

  33. There's some really fantastic music work in this game, especially the way things blend into one another, like when area music kicks into a harder arrangement for battles. And like: The Boss fights are NOT fucking around. The combat system is really good once you get used to it and learn how to pop around, switch between characters, and figure out the way to deal with everything. I'm finding a distinct lack of grinding. I don't know if it's that I just need to go further away to respawn the mobs, and so far I'm not falling behind any enemies (although here in Chapt

  36. Why is Jerry Lawler even on TV right now? Besides the controversy over the moonsault line, dude's 70 years old. Had a heart attack, he shouldn't even be near the announcing desk during a global pandemic.

  37. So, as a Kentucky boy and a long time USWA mark it pains me to say this, but never put Lawler on commentary ever again. He’s not funny, he adds nothing and it’s just not a good look for the old white guy to be making jokes like “Raman noodle moonsault”. He shouldn’t be traveling right now anyway but we got to use him, talking head on network or something.

  38. Thinking about something leads me to a question for hopefully fun discussion: What was your biggest "I was such a mark" thing? For me, it was Yellow Dog. In my defense, they didn't run cable down my road until 1994, so my only access to WCW was the official magazine, the other Apter mags, and, if I could manage to stay awake until I think 2 am Saturday night, Worldwide. So I saw a match where somebody (probably Windham?) was wrestling Yellow Dog, and Brian Pillman came out to ringside (my first guess is that it was probably Brad Armstrong under the hood in retrospect, since he was si

  41. I believe the only thing getting in Roman's way is Vince McMahon's booking of him, he has everything you need in a top guy. He can go in the ring. He's got a great personality and can talk. He's a great babyface and probably a way better heel.

  46. Bumping this because this season has been fucking awesome so far. I feel like they did a full assessment of what was and wasn't working and along with the Westworld set burning down they have no more crutches and they're sticking with everything that works. The reveal last night for the pearls was pretty awesome, I didn't see that coming, and it ultimately makes sense. It's also scary as fuck. I'm also torn. In a sense, I think what Dolores is trying to do should be done, but I also agree with Sarac that humans are by and large pieces of shit unless you can wrangle them all in and then yo
