  2. update from December 1981 Florida: JJ Dillon looking like he talks to the customers so that the engineers don't have to. I thought JJ was slumming it a tad in JCP before he dropped all his randos and went in with the Horsemen. But it's possible that JJ has like a 5 year progression where he went from looking like a dumpy office worker who steals from his employer to looking like a corrupt elected official. In other words, that mustache.. I'm hoping that was merely a short-term thing.

  3. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled, was convincing the world her mildly critical tweet doesn't exist.

  6. Early this morning TK tweeted a 2 hour, 46 minute video recapping the entire Athena-Billie Starkz angle. (Fully out of the loop on ROH, but I'm going to try to watch it!) Anyway, due to the length of the video, I just saw someone refer to it as "Killers of the Ember Moon"

  7. See, every time I think of Flair’s suits I think, “What can I say about that suit that hasn’t already been said about Afghanistan? It looks bombed out and depleted.”

  14. My wife fell back in January, breaking her knee and rupturing a tendon in her knee. So with that, two leg surgeries, and some other related health problems I've basically been doing caretaking all year since she's been laid up. Needless to say it's been a stressful as all hell. But! My wife is finally recovered enough that I get to take lil' road trip on my own this weekend to go watch some wrasslin. I get to see Masaaki Mochizuki and then starfish myself in the middle of a king sized hotel bed and I cannot fuckin' wait.

  16. Killer Kelly rules. Her and Jody Threat had a great match that was built around Kelly trying to kiss Jody, between which they had a wild brawl around ringside. Finish came when Jody caught Kelly off-guard by kissing her and then hitting her finisher. That was the main event of the WPW show. Honestly one of their better cards ever. Match of the night was the tag team championship between champion Sammy Peppers of Red Hot Summer and Moses the Deliverer (filling in for Sammy's sick partner) against Fresh Air. I've never seen Fresh Air or even heard of them before, but they were fun as fuck. Have an 80s B-Boy gimmick with lots of fun tandem moves. Hope they get booked again. The other big stand out match was Warhorse beating Kevin O'Doyle and Charlie Hubley. Didn't expect much out of it but all three meshed really well and the crowd went banana over it. Other matches: WPW Men's Champion Tyler Colton d. Mo Jabari by DQ (former champ Bobby Schink kept running in and attacking Tyler) Vanna Black d. Tootie Lynn Rahim de la Suede d. Chad Daniels AJ Sanchez d. a dude who's name I can never remember (who's doing a rich boy gimmick) Josh Holiday d. Michael Allen Richard Clark James Roth d. Shaun Moore

  20. This was a damn good two hours of wrestling. Brody/Claudio were two guys whaling on eachother and making it seem like they were both actually struggling with eachother. Abbadon shows up and actually wins, plus there's an indication of a Julia Hart Program which should be great. The Iron Savages are there too and I would have much rather have heard them do one of their tribute promos to coked up 80s hosses than Roddy's attempts at comedy. The HOB match was your average JTTS match, but the setup of a program with FTR is all kinds of awesome. Toni Storm is still awesome. I thought Garcia might get an upset victory here, but nah. Match was fine though. Danielson and Eddie predictably beat the piss out of eachother for all our enjoyment. If he turns but Wheeler doesn't, does he rebrand the team as FTR, Inc?

  22. As a kid I thought it was fairly bold of Lex Luger to be around mirrors so much considering how Marty Jannetty whacked Sensational Sherri with one, but then I figured Luger would just shove the referee in the way or something.

  23. HIS NAME IS JEROME! Also, didn't we have like two back-to-back mirror related gimmicks with early Heartbreak Kid Shawn and Sherri and then the Narcissist? I am guessing they had an overstock of mirrors in Stamford.

  25. Good call, I like the idea of having their CC match on the PPV - I think having a tourney match with AEW main show/title implications would be a great way to build interest for the ROH show. With their match at Grand Slam having been so great too, I could see them picking up a handful of extra last minute buys based on the match being a "proven commodity" to the AEW TV audience.

  31. Bader vs. Ngannou is probably the biggest fight PFL could do at the moment Warrior Spirit (2021) - UFC Champ Nicco Montano Documentary - Official Teaser - YouTube just watched this on TUBI , really worth a watch goes into her disastrous weight cut and extreme weight cutting in general

  32. Butch/Lashley was good. Lashley dominated like one would expect, but Dunne got a pretty nice showcase with him caught Lashley off guard various time and showing passion. Santos/Wilde was a solid showcase for Wilde. Logan Paul's segment was solid and served as a good lead into KO/Waller which was another solid match. The tournament to decide who challenge Paul first should be good. Very curious to see what NXT name shows up. If they hadn't built the idea of KO/Logan so strongly I would say this would be the perfect spot for Hayes or Bron to show up and win. Bianca/Kairi was a bit off at times but still came together well enough by the end to be something pretty decent. The story of the night was mostly on Bayley clearly not being on the same wavelength of the rest of the group. Kind of surprised they didn't pull the DC murders Bayley trigger here. Audience was good enough that it probably would have went over rather well. Skipped around the final segment until Heyman showed up. Dug those parts, especially with Knight making the save when Kimmy and solo attacked. Solid show with enjoyable matches and segments. The no. 1 contender's tournament for the US title should provide some good matches for the rest of the month. Its also good to see Roman's next big feud set up. I'm curious if they wait till the Rumble for Orton/Roman or do it as a big Smackdown episode. Damage Ctrl still feel sliek a decent threat, but that is going to end fast if they don't start getting some regular victories. That was kind of how HHH screwed the group before. Hopefully he isn't making the same mistake though the focus on doing Bianca/Io again and how to get there makes me think otherwise.

  33. re: AEW's Triple Crown i like that it is made up of titles from three companies (albeit two of those owned by the same man), but i kinda wish they could have appropriated a belt from AAA or CMLL to make it from the big three wrestling countries as well (sorry Canada).

  34. Man, reading Flair's tweet 75% of it is noise to me but I kind of like his self awareness at the end. If it was legit anybody else I would almost feel sorry for somebody who's in a generation that's very different than the one that he thrived in. But it's Flair and he frankly should only have been there for a couple appearances at most where he's reined in. He is right in wanting to be there for Sting's retirement and he should. But this is what happens when you have a multi year contract and have to use him somehow. Since he's contracted I still think he's best doing backstage promos where they can edit out whatever. But if he goes out there I hope they now know he needs to be on a short leash with a live mic. Oh, and I don't post much in the AEW section anymore because of folks like Vileone. And it saddens me to see Gordlow not as interested as he was before. But I still love AEW to pieces and keep up on the news items on here. I just prefer to watch the shows without looking as much on here before and after. Plus with Dean gone the level of positivity he brought to the threads is very much missed. When people are talking shit it can be a bummer as it's not as well balanced out by his lovely wall of text. I'm not saying it's related to what any one person says about AEW (aside from Vile) It's more just a general vibe more than anything.

  35. To be totally clear, it's the bell-to-bell that turns me off on those, nothing graphically - I kinda dig the vintage look, really. My 'timing' is just absolutely horrendous, the control scheme is just too much of a shift for me from the grapple-based system that's been used basically from the WCW games up to 2K19. It sure is. Why the hell am I getting a history of the cheesesteak?! Let me go fight a guy in the dressing room or something. The Smackdown/SVR games might have been a better inspiration here than the older stuff - even the goofy bullshit was really fun. I remember one from high school where Undertaker uses his powers to turn your male character into a lady in order to fight for the women's title - I mean, cmon. That's awesome outside the box type stuff. This story mode sucks so bad that when I started reading @Logw's post, I legitimately thought at first when describing cashing in the wellness credits, that it was part of the story I missed. Like yeah, I've already gotta go out to eat and to the gym, why wouldn't I get points for my doctor visits, workouts, checkups...

  41. I recall picking up bootleg copy of the FMW 5 5 1996 tape at an IWA MS show and my friends and watched it after we drove back late into the wee hours. They were doubtful about how good a women's death match would be. Those doubts were erased very quickly.

  42. Oh god, don't get me started. I'll buy records, let them sit there for days, play them once, and shuffle them back into the stacks. But the only time I'll listen to them is drunk. I just got four tapes in the mail (shout out to Headsplit Records) listened to two of them once, and the other two are just sitting there. I went to the library, got three books, already returned one because I just couldn't read about Duterte's murder spree in the Phillipines (I picked it up because the sleeve basically said it would disturb anybody, and I took that as a challenge. It won. Seriously, it opened with detailing the murder of this kid's parents and then just had a huge list of dead people), and used the drives as an excuse to get booze. Other two books haven't been touched. Today was rough but I didn't out myself by throwing up a half dozen times, and managed to at least eat. EDIT: Also, thank you very much Brynn! You're great.

  44. That 12/10/83 Mid-South having Ross and Lawler on PBP/color is quite the look into the future. A bad future, mind you, as Lawler is actually decent on commentary in MSW rather than always shrieking or shrilly talking about "puppies" as from the Attitude Era on.

  47. Never gotten the love for Donna. I thought she was the most annoying companion by far(I've only watched NU WHO), though a few later ones have come close. She was much better in this ep, I agree. Too bad they didn't do Martha Jones instead. .

  48. I'll always find it impossible not to like Punk for the secret best bit of meta weirdness in internet history. I just love the idea of him researching the history of Liverpool FC and spending hours posting in the footballsoccer thread just so he can go undercover as an Englishman living in Canada to troll himself on a wrestling forum for months on end. If Tony Khan was a real DVDVR guy he'd pay Rafa Benitez to unveil himself as The Devil and cost himself millions driving away confused fans just for the sake of the world's greatest possible, multi layered in-joke.
