  5. Tying a game's average length to completion into it's worth is such a strange thing to me, because it doesn't factor in whether you want to replay it or not. If a game can be beaten in five hours, but it's fun and I want to replay it multiple times, isn't that worth it to me? Much more so than a thirty hour game that I beat once and never want to touch again? Personal value is definitely subjective, and if you're not the kind of person who replays your games, fair enough, but even if you play it just once, isn't a five hour enjoyable time better than a thirty hour slog?

  12. Drew/Cody was good as expected. Dug the Bloodline interference and the clear mixed feelings Drew had with it despite taking advantage. The women's battle royal was surprisingly solid and did a good job of putting a returning Raquel over all the way to the win. Glad to see Raquel back. This felt like the first time she was booked right in a long time. The Truth interview was wonderfully dumb as I hoped for. That man is a treasure. The Truth/Miz/DIY vs. Judgement Day tag that came a little later was solid. Truth looked great in that finishing stretch against Priest. Becky's promo was going fine until the typical everyone interrupts part happened. This is one thing they really need to leave behind as it just bloats talking segments and rarely leaves anyone coming across all too well by the end. Skipped around to the brawling. I kind of love and hate nia coming out and so soundly destroying everyone. Doesn't leave the EC participants looking great, but Nia arguably needs stuff like these for the extra heat and cred. Its also speaks to the mistake of everyone but Raquel overlooking her for Rhea or their own glory. Chad/Ivar was pretty solid though the crowd response could have been better. Jey/Gunther was damn good as expected. The early massacre of Jey was great, and they did a fine job of having Jey build up momentum while Gunther still presented as a beast. The Jimmy interference was expected but worked well into the finish. Dug all the matches a good deal and the segments were mostly solid. Pretty solid show, especially for Jey/Gunther.

  13. Caught way more of this than usual. Them using the telestrator now is ridiculous (and it's just because it's McAfee of course). They missed a big opportunity to really WWE it up and slo-mo Solo's spike moving towards the throat, and then just like their usual replays hitting the play button and letting the actual impact speed by so fast you can't catch it. Seth stole a blind guy's shades? Jelly Roll, FUCK OFF. It was pretty cool that they let a team actually support each other without turning on each other through an entire battle royale. Amazing, really. I'd like to know who was the agent for that match. The main was good except for Jey's complete lack of a moveset. I mean, he doesn't need to be Davey Richards out there, but when all you have is 1. Samoan drop 2. Superkick 3. Splash 4. Spear and the rest is just punch-kick, you are really working with... nothing. And you aren't Dusty or Hogan either so lets not compare apples to oranges. Your sucky spear being used five times in a row shouldn't be able to crack GUNTHER, sorry. Oh, and god isn't Truth a national treasure? All the dated references, the staring at the heart-hands and following them like it's a tracking device, this stuff belongs on a comp somewhere.

  16. Cube's son seems to be a big wrestling fan, but partial to WWE. I don't follow him on any socials, but I occasionally see his Xweets in my feed that someone else re-xweeted, and he generally seems to be a tribalistic WWE stan. With that said, the clip going around is him criticizing AEW for announcing matches between "unknowns" and not doing UFCesque video packages to let you know who the wrestlers are before the match. I don't really watch UFC anymore, but when I did, they typically only do those packages for their headliners, and not prelim fights. And, although AEW does do packages like that on occasion, they do announce matches sometimes, like say Danielson vs Akayama, without giving the viewer any reason to know what that is a big match, or who Akayama is. Which is a fair criticism, but without seeing the full interview, I'm assuming it is being made in bad faith.

  17. Sunday was Legs, and it was kind of a shitty workout. I mean, it's Leg Day, they all suck, but mine lately have been special sorts of suck. Whatever lingering lung issues I have are still a limiting factor, particularly for that. I managed some hack squats with 4 plates a side, then switched to barbell squats with only 135, and that was frankly enough. There was a recent RP vid about doing this exact thing to try to prioritize quads on barbell squats and, yeah, it does work fairly well. I probably gave my posterior chain short shrift in the process, though my whole setup is intended to be 8-day cycles so that 1 Leg Day is quads and the other is Posterior, so I guess this was the Quad-focused day. Yesterday was Push and wasn't terrible. Did bench 5x5 with 165 for the first 2 sets and 160 for the last 3; slightly less volume than when I did 160 for the whole thing and got more reps at the end, but I'm at least headed in the right direction with it. Flys fucking shredded me (Mr. Stork Arms over here can literally touch the floor with the weights while on a regular bench), then more Smith military, shoulders, and some tricep stuff I saw in a Eugene Teo short that actually felt good on my elbows.

  21. They are trying really, really hard to make Jey Uso, Singles Superstar, a thing. It's just a shame he's proven to be completely average whenever given the opportunity to show something. Some people are just better suited to being in a tag team. Michael Cole's "OK" during Michael Chandler's promo killed me

  24. Hot damn that was quality tonight. Opening match was fantastic and peak TV wrestling — a perfect length right before the interference came. Drew and Cody are going to bring the house down at a PPV main event sooner than later. Truthline was the funniest I have ever intentionally laughed while watching wrestling. Plenty of times I have laughed at things I was not supposed to laugh at. But this was just absurdity at its great. Not sure what I liked better — the This Is Us reference or the “Pony” shout-out, The 4 on 4 sprint after was fun. They have done such an awesome job with those quick little segments. The New Day one tonight really stood out to me — made those guys look deadly serious and badass in setting up the No DQ match. I missed Gable vs. Ivar but sounds like that tore the house down. That main event was fucking bananas good. Gunther’s the best TV worker in the world right now. As much as I love OC, Gunther just has everything right now. I was wondering when we were going to get to Jey/Jimmy for WM and here we are. I loved the finish of this so much, good fake-outs to make us think Jey still had a shot.

  25. One thing I like about the Bucks new character is the good cop/bad cop thing they’re doing with Nick/Matt (I’m a Matthew who prefers going by Matt, so suck it!). Nick is the “hothead” bad cop who jumps straight to punishment while Matt is the “calmer” good cop that’s still a dick but tries to project being nicer.

  26. You left out the person at a house show taking a picture of the intermission displayed on the tron and passing it off to Dave as a new PPV being announced. That was GOLD I tell ya. Dave may have lost a step or two and his sources are damn near non existent compared to the past but he’s still more reliable then people like Hausman/Bix/Scherer and all the other wannabe TMZ style wrestling “journalists” out there. I personally blame whoever made him clean his office.

  27. Speaking of the You have your x We got ours shirts,maybe 6 years ago saw a younger guy wearing one locally. Looked and it looked brand new. Haven't seen one in decades so did some shitkicker find a palette of old "New" stock redneck fashion wear? Was it packed along with a pile of Nascar and Gone with the Wind Shirts?

  31. Maxx Payne had a friend who ran a clothing business, I think they made his entrance jackets, as well as his shirts. He decided to sneakily promote that business on telly without telling WCW he was doing it, so he had the Fashion Victim Maxx Payne shirts made. The company was called Fashion Victim clothing.

  34. I thought about this on my last watch too. I’m pretty sure Paulie compromised with the Lucchesi family so it’d be one of his for one of theirs. They wanted satisfaction and were reasonably sure it was someone from Paulie’s outfit. Of the three, Tommy is clearly the easiest one to point the finger at for Batts, plus he’s the biggest liability. Jimmy is an earner and Henry hadn’t become unreliable yet.

  40. The Dominator was the best move nobody ever uses (along with the shoulderbreaker [Edge did it though recently!] and Scott Steiner's backflip fallaway slam) so this ties back into wrestling, neato If you follow the Dinosaur Dracula page on Facebook you will see so many goddamn forgotten foods of the '80s and '90s. I think the dude collects McDonald's styrofoam containers and Chef Boyardee cans, ffs.

  41. SMW is the perfect example of Cornette's booking philosophy - "well by golly, it used to work, give it to 'em again!" This is the same guy that thought running Rock 'n' Roll vs Midnights for six years straight was a great concept, and his new great concept was running Rock 'n' Roll vs Midnight with a new coat of paint. We're asking for a bit much to ask for variance.

  42. I think it was one of those cases where we cannot have you wrestling on the house shows and being on tours internationally while telling folks you're hurt. So he got paid to sit at home. Good work if you can get it. There is also a point, but it's very brief, where Mabel raps himself to the ring and we don't see Oscar for weeks. Then, he magically shows back up. It's all very weird. Mabel rapping is terrible, but Oscar's raps don't even really pop the crowds anymore until he gets to the Whoomp There is It part. It's intriguing as a black person watching the ascent of Men on a Mission, Harlem Heat, AND the Gangstas at real time after there being ZERO tag teams that are black of consequence outside of Doom. It's also HILARIOUS watching Booker and Stevie Ray talk about being New Jacks when there is literally a guy named New Jack acting like someone in the film New Jack City. However, I would say if Bruce saw Booker and Stevie Ray in Global and didn't try to get them in WWF, he guessed wrong cause they clearly have improved since 1993. This goes especially that they spent the back quarter of 1994 trying out these crazy ass tag team moves looking for a finisher. All of them MASSACRE these enhancement talent guys giving poor Bobby Heenan a heart attack every time. If someone started doing that now, it would be considered nuts. I am at the week when they finally settle on and introduce Booker doing the Harlem Hangover. They still need help having good matches but at least you can say they have one solid worker in Booker T whereas M.O.M has two guys who need to be carried. I also would estimate they've had a dozen good TV matches once they started to get a push and looked serviceable in the rest. M.O.M has been around for almost two years and giving them credit for two good matches may be being generous. The Gangstas ain't super workers at all, but they are over as a big time heels and New Jack every week is hilarious. The other week when he's making fun of the Armstrong kids was spectacular. You can see in the WWF cartoony world that Men on a Mission is so one dimensional and even that one dimension isn't good once Oscar's creativity with raps stopped (this may or may not run parallel to certain present day acts). Mabel shows a tiny bit of promise, but if they're looking for a new Yoko, they probably should have realized that Yoko was around two years and they had to send him somewhere to go get his weight under control. Mabel started out being too big. These two things are happening at the exact same time. Nash ain't great, but he could be hidden with the right talent across the ring and still was very mobile. I can't say that with Mabel because the trial run as a singles didn't work cause he had ZERO important or halfway notable matches. Same when the tag team came back together. They had him do a two man Rumble match (yeah I know) on Raw with Bundy after they both were in the Rumble match and did nothing, and that was hideously bad. He's batting well below the Mendoza line on things he can actually do. I dunno how you can look at any of that and say "title challenger" for one of the major PPVs. They're already at the point where each PPV is doing worse year over year, and we're not talking difference between 1990 and 1992. We're talking last year was low and this year is somehow is even lower. Things look extremely bleak.

  43. I'm not sure, but I have to admit, while I'm not a Bucks fan by any means(despite enjoying their matches for the most part), the vitriol directed at them is borderline fanatical and concerning.

  44. It was never specifically mentioned that Travis was Rust’s dad. You can just put 2 and 2 together with them having the same last name and Rust mentioning that his dad was in Alaska in season one (I didn’t remember that, saw it pointed out elsewhere). Rust may have also mentioned that his dad had Leukemia at some point, too, but I’m not sure. Also, the Tuttle name that comes up as the company that owns the research lab, etc. is the same name as the villainous rich family in season one. I don’t think these things are anything more than Easter eggs for fans. It’s not going to lead to Rust showing up in the last episode to save someone and then they join forces to battle the Tuttles once and for all or any shit like that. I think it’s just sprinkling in some little things for fun.

  45. Tony for some reason pronounces Sonjay's last name like DOOT and my mind (and Excalibur's) immediately went to Narduwar's signature sign-off. He briefly mentions the name, and Tony and Daddy Magic unsurprisingly have no clue (nor would I expect them to). Moments like that are why I cherish the fact that AEW exists.

  46. No, he was "big mad" that the entire interview/segment was completely stupid and counterproductive as it: A) Presented the rantings of idiots like Corny as the babyface position B) Was centered around promoting the guy headlining your competitor's biggest show of the year C) After getting destroyed in a super heavy angle the week before Darby comes out like he was totally fine.
