  1. So, how come we don't see more botches like this in NXT, where there are a ton of green workers? I can only think of the time Eva Marie kicked the holy hell out of Carmella's head. I think generally speaking, they try to do even more difficult stuff in NXT and tend to pull it off. Is it good editing?

    They took off Roman's vest in one of the Evolution 6 mans to hit him with the kendo stick to the back while he was kneeling on the steps. Roman put it back on before he had to stand up. I'm guessing he's got Samoan boobs.

    Hell In A Cell X - 9/16/2018

    Why did Brock F5 Roman onto Brock if that wasn't the finish? And what happened to Dean and Drew after Seth and Dolph repeat of the Dean and Seth bump from their hell in a cell match? I'm kinda done with Miz and Bryan for a while. Kinda done with Ronda and Alexa. I should be done with Seth and Dean vs. Dolph and Drew, but that match was great. I'm also kinda done with them teasing breaking up Rusev Day. I like Aiden, and this feels like his last chance. I like Rusev too, but until they commit to an alignment he's stuck in limbo. Seems like a face to me, but what the hell do I know. I liked Becky and Charlotte, but all that arm and shoulder work really went nowhere with that flash pin. You can't break out the Pentagon arm break spot and not have it come back and affect Charlotte later on. Was there even a spot where she tried to use the worked over arm? AJ and Joe was a really good match, and I liked AJ being unsure about how he won and whether he won. Joe better win a match with that muscle buster at some point, because there's no point in teasing it after not using it for years. I thought Hardy and Orton was good. I didn't think the finish was the finish of the match. I legit thought it was an excuse to raise the cell, get Randy and Hardy to the outside, and then some woken magic would put the cell down, and we'd get our fabled Swanton off the cell. Actually, probably a good thing that didn't happen. I had no problem with Randy moving early -- Hardy was in no man's land and he was gonna fall regardless. Might have been fun if he fell into an RKO, but I don't know how you do that without killing one or the other. But yeah, they need split PPVs again. Do one a month, alternate and combine for the big ones. I know their booking cycle can only work for four weeks, so on the off month for a show, do a "special" or "themed" show like Smackdown does from time to time. Special Smackdown from Las Vegas! Have a Universal title shot on Raw. You can do that now! But yeah, the amount of talent not at these shows dwarfs the the amount of talent at these shows. And that doesn't feel right.

    The pace is glacial, there's no real plot or plot development, there's not a ton of dialogue, and there's plenty of that strobe lights in a padded cell for 70 minutes tedious type bullshit. And Nic Cage was apparently never told no in regards to an acting choice. So, yeah, if that's gonna bother you, it's gonna bother you. It's definitely not for everyone. The Graveyard Shift showing at the Alamo Drafthouse was very divided on it. About half loved it, a quarter had no idea what just happened, and another quarter was not impressed at all.

    2018 NFL: WEEK TWO

    The Houston Texans are the worst coached team in the NFL. Let me rephrase that. The Houston Texans are the worst team in the NFL.

    And check out Beyond the Black Rainbow, Panos Cosmatos's other batshit insane movie.

    You don't even know. It's dreamy, it's batshit, it's the Nic Cage-iest movie ever made, but in a good way. If that makes sense. And the soundtrack is amazing. And it's gorgeous to look at. I can't stop thinking about it.

    Mandy is beautiful, deranged, amazing.

    What if they do the Hart / Austin spot and have Becky bleeding and passing out to the Figure 8? Does it work gender-flipped?

    So is a War Games match going to be in the game?

    I was expecting a PG-13 Stranger Things vibe but that ending veered into hard R territory and really brought the room down. I liked it but yeah, that one part really sucked.

    The Really Swell News Thread

    I got a Not Guilty By Reason of Insanity this week. It was the first Not Guilty By Reason of Insanity since 2007 in this particular county. Client was found competent to stand trial, but was found to be insane at the time of the offense. Client was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia, and was absolutely convinced he was acting in self-defense. It was clear, however, that he was operating under very severe paranoid delusions. He was facing life in prison. Instead, he's heading to the state hospital for 30 days to assess his dangerousness. After that, we'll review with the court whether to release him once a year. He would have died in prison within six months. These things are so rare, I'm gonna enjoy this one.

    Ryan Anderson and DeAnthony Melton traded to PHX for Brandon Knight and Marquese Chriss. Not sure what to say, but it’s impressive that Morey was able to trade away Ryno’s 20 mil per year contract without throwing in a first round pick. It’ll be interesting if Ryno can ever get it together again or if his shot is shot. Knight will be the 4th PG behind Harden, Paul and Gordon and probably only play when Paul is hurt. Unless they play Michael Carter-Williams over him. I don’t know who Chriss is, but as long as he can pick and roll he should be fine. i’m guessing one or the other gets traded by the deadline for the 3 and D guy the Rockets need for the playoffs.

    I really enjoyed the show. I'm perfectly fine with the Johnny / Ciampa feud. Obviously, it sucks they had to do this instead of the triple threat with Black, but for what it was, it was great. Ciampa definitively winning the feud is the right call, and Johnny's injury (kayfabe or not) is probably pretty good for him. We can get vignettes of him training and refocusing (kinda like they did with Bayley when she had a leg injury), supporting Candice, and, probably most importantly, moving on with his life. Then he can start at the bottom again, Ciampa won't even mention his name, or allow anyone else to, and Johnny can organically rise back to the top for the blow-off, which doesn't necessarily need to be for the belt. Loved the tag team match. Roderick was flying around for everyone. Tyler Bate is great. I'd be tempted to give it the full five, but I was annoyed at KOR kicking out of the kill move finisher. At least have Roddy break it up. Velveteen's Biggie tribute was amazing, and I loved the "Call Me Up Vince" on his ass. Yes, the roles were backwards for this one -- Not sure how they don't realize that no matter what Dream does he's a fan favorite. They don't have to change too much about him, but allow his in-ring work to show just how much the crowd wants to cheer him. EC3 -- not sure what to do with him in NXT, but I think he could actually work better on the main roster. Was not into Ricohet / Cole until that superkick spot. That was cool. So was the wild rana. Other than that, it was kinda there. Also, Kairi and Shayna put on both of their's best matches in NXT to date. Loved it. Both of them are really, really good. Not sure how well treated Shayna will be on the main roster, but as a big fish in a small pond in NXT she's golden. Real curious who challenges Kairi next, but it'll be pretty cool, I think. I have no real complaints about the show. It was great.
