  1. I have no idea how or why WWE has turned arsonist murderer necrophiliac rapist stalker Kane into a babyface so many times.
  2. Gargano looks so short next to Regal. So, so... terribly short.
  3. Stopping after one wouldn't have been a terrible idea.
  4. I don't even want to think about how Vince would ruin Goku's gimmick.
  5. I thought it was a decent performance from Carmella, but, yeah, some of her kicks.... The sorta-kick right before the sorta-flatliner looked terrible.
  6. They booed Charlotte's entrance and cheered Becky running in to beat on the exhausted babyface. It's always funny when WWE fails to read the room and insists on plowing ahead anyway. On the plus side, Becky's getting better babyface reactions now than she's ever gotten on the main roster.
  7. I'm a big fan of Johns and thought the run was one of his best books.
  8. Yeah, I've been an USO fan for an awful long time and I still can't tell you who is who. 5 min ago, I had no idea which one was married to Naomi.
  9. To me, that was probably the most impressive bit of writing this season. Loved this season. I really hope this show only goes a few more seasons though. I really want to see how they wrap the show up before they either get canceled prematurely or hang on too long and the writing goes downhill (or someone crucial leaves the cast). I kinda wonder how long Dominic Cooper (or more likely, a stylist who works for the studio) has to spend to keep his hair looking like that. Lol, even being put in a coffin and sunk to the bottom of a swamp, then escaping by blowing up the coffin and swimming to the surface of said swamp, couldn't damage Jesse's hair. God damn!
  10. I realized over the weekend that 2.5D fighters are probably my favorite thing in gaming. 2D fighters are probably runner-up. I'm not even much of a fighting game fan, but Capcom and SNK really churned out a lot of fun franchises.
  11. Y'all made me google Trish Stratus to find out how old she is. I'm trying to not think about what truly useful bit of information I've had to forget so I can remember Trish is 42. Heels making fun of Trish's age would sit better with me if I didn't remember Meltzer's comment (5-10 years back) that Vince thought 35-year-old women were too old to be on TV.
  12. That's not far off. It was pretty obvious the filmmakers thought it was 1980-something and the idea of foul-mouthed puppets would get a rise out of people.
  13. Lol, if they had released the PS4 game alongside the PC, Sony could probably have sold me a PS4. That window has closed. The game hasn't grabbed me like Fire Pro Returns did. I like the PC version well enough, but I hardly played FPR. I enjoyed creating real-life edits and doing some simming. I was never a fast edit maker, but I managed to create quite a few over the course of a decade or so. I just can't imagine spending that sort of time on World.
  14. Honestly, I didn't check out the link, so I have no idea if it's a goof or not. It could be a goof, though I feel like that is probably wishful thinking.
  15. Geez, Red Skull really wanted the rest of them to see that bird off in the distance
  16. If I have to pick my stalker, I'm going to pick creepy guy who hangs around an airport at 2 AM waiting to approach me over dude who thinks taking pictures of a Shoney's is nearly a religious experience.
  17. I actually thought the finale would be more nuts, but it was still damn enjoyable.
  18. The execution is worse than the concept. It wasn't as bad as I thought it might be, but it's not even really worth a free rental from the public library. The review that called it "a witless comedy that blindly pushes buttons instead of attempting to tell a good story" was spot-on.
  19. Didn't know that. Didn't they do the same thing with Rey at one point? I have no idea how that is legal. I mean, I guess it's written into the contract? Or at least the contract language is so vague, WWE feels like it would hold up?
  20. If his contract literally did expire, I'd assume the 90-day clause is also null and void. I mean, if the contract "expired" and there's still a 90 day no-complete clause in effect, then the contract is still in effect and really hasn't expired (legally). Once a contract is truly (and legally) expired or terminated, there's no legal way to enforce any of its elements on the other party. I've always assumed the no-compete clause is effectively severance pay. The wrestler agrees not to work for any competing company and in return gets paid x amount for the next three months. It depends how the clause is worded, of course, but I've always assumed wrestlers could decline the option and go work elsewhere immediately by declining to be paid for the 90 days following severance. Honestly, it's sort of dumb to sign a contract which doesn't give you some sort of out in the event the company fires you, but I can see guys not caring about the fine print at the time. And... Vince would probably have a clause inserted that bars the wrestler from ever working for anyone except the WWE if he thought he could get wrestlers to sign
  21. If the caption hadn't given it away, I probably would have thought that was late 90's Edge wearing Undertaker's gear.
  22. I don't have a problem with her opinion (though I don't agree and am not giving up football any time in the foreseeable future), but i did wonder how her bosses would react to her thanking football for freeing up her weekends on air. I actually like Beadle so I'm not one of the people calling her out for various things, but she and Greenberg have negative chemistry together. I actually think Katie Nolan would play off Greenie well, but the whole show seems a badly thought out trainwreck, so Nolan is probably right that the failure would have gotten hung on her. What are the ratings like for Golic's radio show? I like Golic well enough, find Trey Wingo to be mostly dull.
  23. This is so true. I didn't really dig seasons 1 or 2 but I kept watching it off and on for several seasons afterward.
  24. Rare Ltd. for N64? Donkey Kong 64, Goldeneye 007, Diddy Kong Racing, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie & Banjo Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day. They also did developed Blast Corps and Jet Force Gemini, which didn't sell as well but were very good games. Other than that, I'd go with the suspects already mentioned. Capcom for PS2, Capcom for Saturn, Capcom for Dreamcast, SquareSoft, Sega for GC. PS1's fighting library would have been awesome if almost every game didn't have a simultaneous release on Saturn that was generally a little better since Saturn was a RAM beast (most of the PS1 fighters had frames of animation removed from the PS1 versions. Sometimes whole gameplay modes). And I really enjoyed the GameCube Sonic Adventures ports, which y'all are leaving out of your recommendations. For shame.
