  2. I've been watching a bit of 88-89 WWF last few days. Strike Force was my favorite tag team as a kid - and Tito vs Martel was such a great simmering feud when they split. You just loved seeing Tito get his licks in against Rick whenever that scenario could happen... and damn was Rick Martel good. Demolition was a far better tag team than The Road Warriors. I never really understood the comparison other than they both had a Mad Max look... Demolition could actually work. Greg Valentine vs Ronnie Garvin. They pulled zero punches. It's pretty damn awesome watching those two go at i

  8. Glacier was literally Sub-Zero. And that's why they don't do those angles. Because they fucking sucked. And people who pitch Mortal Kombat angles don't realize, they DID. And they failed miserably. The problem too is, Glacier beats Wrath and Mortiis...then what? Mortis feuds with Hacksaw Jim Duggan? The heels are done.

  10. Im preserving this for posterity for 2 reasons. 1: the early reports is this was a reprimand for misusing the bullpen phone in order to try to get extra information on challenging a play. Not even close to the smoking gun Astros fans and players (!!!) tried to portray it as. Shout out to the POS Bregman for posting a reaction the deleting it btw. 2. Even if that report is false, and it turns out to be something much bigger: it’s not like it exonerates the Astros in any way. Your still fucking cheats from the top all the way down. Your justification attempts just make you

  11. I've been doing the same. No matter what I think of WWE now, I will always love 88-89. The Mega-Powers build up through their split is one of the most perfect angles WWE has done. All of the ppv's back then are breeze to get through and is a great way to kill time. Martel and Slick was a great pairing. I wish they weren't split so soon. Demolition has my undying loyalty over the Road Warriors. They were such better workers and always made their opponents look good. Looking back, I love the Garvin/Valentine feud. They didn't hold anything back against each other. I also love

  12. That's a weird brag. I'm the reason a bunch of dorks on the indies rock kickpads. I wouldn't want that to be my legacy.

  13. Please keep Sabian and Havoc away from Death Triangle. Personally, I like them as a trio and I think they work well together because they carry the same intensity in their work. Adding anyone who doesn't look like they're trying to end someone's career in every match would dilute that. Archer would fit the bill and Jake managing someone like Pac would also be very interesting but it wouldn't be much of a triangle and I want my Death Triangle t-shirt to still be relevant in addition to being cool as all get out.

  17. Who is this “you” you are talking about? If it’s Cubs fans, there has been no evidence we did anything as of now. If it’s the Cards because you mistakingly think I’m a Cardinals fan cause I live in St. Louis, if anything they look justified now in worrying that the Astros were stealing there info, which is the story they’ve always had, because your organization is clearly not above cheating to win.

  24. I just 100%'d Life Is Strange, and I need more Max and Chloe. I have no desire to play the sequel knowing that it focuses on a new set of characters (although there are references to the original game in it, that I've already read on the LiS wiki). I'm aware that the developers consider the Arcadia Bay story "finished" but fuck that. I'm emotionally connected to these characters now and I want more of them. I saw the swerve coming a mile away, but I appreciate that they made it hard for you to pinpoint exactly who was doing stuff in the Dark Room. They gave you a plethora of people that c

  30. In defense, though, that is a bigger problem than just "A Mortal Kombat angle would be terrible." Yes, Blood Runs Cold was terrible as a Mortal Kombat-inspired storyline in 1996-97 and had all those problems. What other time did we get a Mortal Kombat-inspired pro wrestling promotion? Lucha Underground. And Lucha Underground was one of the most acclaimed promotions of the last decade. The issue is more a "how do you make it work in the kayfabe of the promotion?", not just "A Mortal Kombat angle would suck". Lucha Underground made it work because the whole kayfabe of the promotion

  32. Bobby waits until the red light turns off to say "Hey Gordon, come out back, I got some Johnnie Walker in the trunk. And I didn't tell his family he's for ransom!" Gordon laughs and says "Ah Bobby, you're a card." Bobby says "Cards? I got those too." Then they go and drink whiskey and play cribbage until they wander off back to their hotel rooms at 3 AM, to fight off the hangover and drive to another town on the circuit in the morrow. It's almost romantic.

  33. I am kind of fucking around. But honestly if the only choice for say a company like IMPACT was to have Josh Matthews, or no commentary, I’d choose the later option in a heart beat.

  34. The worst thing that can happen now is they have a 25 minute "WWE Style" main event. This needs to either be Okada/Omega or a Samurai Cop/The Room style piece of shit we can all laugh at.

  36. I am 100% positive if we'd had the internet in the late 70's and early 80's there'd be grumpy old timers from the 50's and 40's shitting on the Rock and Roll Express for using too many dropkicks.

  37. The diving headbutt also gives us an anecdote demonstrating how far back "killing the business" critiques go. From a Karl Gotch 1990 interview in the WON: WON: One of the things Larry Malenko told me and I don't mean necessarily Billington or Satoru Sayama is that a lot of wrestlers nowadays look like a trampoline act. KG: That's it. Nowhere could you ever see a guy crawl up on the turnbuckles. It's just like the Empire State building. Just stand there and wait for someone to push you off. Where is it ever logical to put a guy on the turnbuckle while you stand on the second rope?

  39. I can see sorta where Setsuna is coming from. CTHD definitely feels like a turning point in Yeoh's career where she transitions from badass nubile asskicker to no-bullshit elder stateswoman of martial arts. The fight between her and Zhang Ziyi has the feel of a passing of the torch between the two actresses. Heroic Trio / Wing Chun wasn't the end of Yeoh's career as a head cracker but she was an artist in mid-transformation. Has Maggie Cheung been in a movie where she wasn't completely adorable?

  41. And again, this all is proof of how fucking dumb Wall Street is for always panicking about Vince not owning WWE or being part of it. Vince needs to no longer be owner of the company and should be forced out if that was even possible. He's killing the company. The guy fucked around with XFL, went out of his way to try to sign everybody to big money deals just so they couldn't work elsewhere, fired corporate execs when they disagreed with that tactic, had no replacement for those execs lined up, pissed away PPV money with the WWE Network, would then say they would sign a PPV deal ahead of WM whe

  42. I'm more inclined to call bullshit because Kenny hasn't had a match close to that good before or since. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Okada has a magch template that can make almost anyone look like a star and Kenny just worked his stuff into it and it all clicked.

He must lurk this board and saw my post about that dinette set at Rooms To Go. And yep. My mom almost tossed her Stimulus Debit Card thinking it was yet another bullshit credit card lure from One Main Financial.
