    JUNE 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    One of the accounts that went around was that Cass told Mella he had no interest in getting married. Mella wasn't having it.

    You know what? I stand corrected, as far as bitching = relevance.

    At what? Wrestling? Sure. But going around whining about being slighted is only going to pay the bills so long...

    I gotta consider the source here. Gotch has been bitching incessantly about Enzo since he (Gotch) got fired before Enzo did. Gotch is, by all accounts, no saint himself when it comes to backstage behavior.

    JUNE 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    That's another thing that's a mystery to me. Their model of doing business where only the stars they want to get over are allowed to. If Grape Fanta or Coke Zero starts selling more product than Coca Cola, the company doesn't stop making grape Fanta or Coke Zero so Coca Cola can get it's sales back up. So dumb...

    Damn. The sad thing is, together, there was money to be made with the two of them. They were guys who could've overcome sloppy work with Enzo's promo and Cass's size. They were WHITE HOT the last year they were in nxt and the first few months they were on Raw. For the life of me I can't understand the decision to split them up. Been downhill since then...

    MITB 2018 POST SHOW THREAD

    So, I've gone back and watched a few random women's matches from the last couple years, and one thing I've noticed is that both Bayley and Sasha have completely lost their footwork. As someone who teaches unarmed self defense, you can throw a punch as hard as you want and be as strong as Strowman, but without a good base, you're lost. They look uncoordinated and clumsy, and that wasn't the case in nxt. Becky's coordination has diminished to some degree, too, but nowhere near as badly as Sasha and Bayley. I think for Bayley, it would be as easy a fix as getting her onto smackdown where she can get a fresh start with some new opponents. Get hr confidence back. She's a good bumper. Alexa is largely, imo, a victim of being called up too soon. She has a serious athletic background, and you can see it in how she moves in the ring, but she almost seems afraid to commit totally to bumps. That's a failure of both herself and the people that put her on tv without her having had enough training.

    MITB 2018 POST SHOW THREAD

    Before she got the title she was doing this. Go back and watch her interactions with Asuka at the Women's Rumble or the MMC. She clearly wanted no part of Asuka in an actual fight. It was fun character work. That all changed when she got the title. As for Alexa's mystery overpush, whenever she's on TV that isn't wrestling content, like her "my kid is a WWE Superstar" or the Sheamus workout thing, the word "driven" keeps being used to describe her. Sheamus mentioned repeatedly how "Driven" she is. And I wonder if, in a company run by people who consider themselves to be "driven," if that trait stands out to the front office to the degree that they see her as more than she is. It was one of the things Vince kept saying about John Cena. How internally motivated and driven he is. I like Alexa. I think her character work is top shelf, and most of the things she does in the ring make sense in terms of her persona, but the bumping thing is an issue, and for whatever reason, the girl with what are probably the smallest closed fists in the entire company throwing as many punches as she does just drives me absolutely insane...

    MITB 2018 POST SHOW THREAD

    This is amongst the least accurate things I've ever read here. This new idea that Alexa isn't REALLY good at everything pertaining to this business other than in-ring work is as asinine as the one that went around this board that The New Age Outlaws were never really any good. And there's 40 years of evidence that in ring ability matters less to Vince mcMahon than any other factor a worker is judged on. In fact, there's probably just as much evidence that being a good in ring worker is as likely to hurt you as it is to help you. Alexa's a fantastic heel with really, really good facial expressions. You not liking it doesn't make it less true.

    I personally attribute Murphy's overnight ascent to "Cruiserweight savant" being due to his fear of being the next Marc Mero...

    I get what they see in Alexa. I do. Her mannerisms and character work is/are off the charts. She's gotta get better at bumping before she blows an ankle. Or knee. Nia has come a million miles. I really thought she handled her end of that match far better than could be expected. Asuka is DOA at this point. Becky too. Makes me sad. She's over as hell and is gonna end up washing out. Men's MITB was fun as hell. Braun running through that ladder was impressive. I would've thought Miz would win, but Braun makes sense.

    TV doesn't really do her justice, does it? She's actually quite stunning...

    [MOVIE] 2018 UPCOMING MOVIE THREAD

    I broke my ass working on this movie. Probably the only show I've worked on that I feel personally invested in. I hope it turns out good. Trailer looks awesome.

    MLB 2018 - MAY

    Hey, they have probably the two most exciting players in the NL at the top of their order...and then Freddie Freeman, who’s as dangerous as it gets. AND, rumor is 3B uberprospect Austin Riley might be up sooner than later. This team is oozing w talent right now, and if they can avoid injury....
