  1. I like how the poster lined up the three sacrificial lamb matches. We're getting three glorious murders here and I can't decide which one I'm the most giddy about.
  2. Here is the full card because I am a helper! OC & KStat vs Baker & Cole in a match where four good workers try to make chicken salad out of the chicken shit that is mixed tag rules. CM Punk vs Shawn "Cokedick Ronnie" Spears Two Grown Men and They Goin' Through a Goth Phase vs The Acclaimed Mox returns! That's great. Serena Deeb vs (and is leaving with) Sky Blue ('s leg) The House of Black/The Kings of the Black Throne vs The Varsity Blonds w/Julia Hart who will hopefully turn on this dead act soon Brock Anderson teams with Big Shotty to try to earn his dad's love vs FTR Cody returns to make worky shooty comments to rile up us dumb marks because he's carny and lame.
  3. Listening to Observer Radio the other day, Dave made a joke about how preposterous the idea was that Flair and Mulligan tried to run a territory. Now look, I know Flair was bad with finances, but I can tell you Blackjack absolutely knew how to make money.
  4. Good point but he has RDR2 in there and that has crafting. Luckily, it’s not necessary at all. I beat that game twice and never crafted a damn thing! My daughter plays Minecraft and I’m like, “this sucks. Imagine GTA but you first have to build your guns and make your own ammo.”
  5. Or one or two specific gifs for an hour. You know the ones.
  6. In my headcanon, Vince is suffering from dementia and thinks it's 1984. He absolutely walked into the room and said to Ali, "here are some friends of mine that are going to get you over like nobody's business, pal!" And proceeded to hand him a keffiyeh and some pointy boots.
  7. It's like he never saw Hassan and Daivari, who worked a similar nuanced gimmick for a little while before being turned into full blown terrorists.
  8. I thought about Star Wars when I wrote that, but there is a difference. I don't feel like explaining it because your post is more about snarky gotcha bullshit than it is about discussing a point, so it's not worth getting into. You have hoisted me upon my petard and win the internet points for the day, I guess.
  9. Sure, but the way I read it, Dave just meant that AEW's standpoint is that they want Danielson to make his "post WWE" debut for AEW, not an indy, in this mystery market. But it's Dave, and he's pretty fucking nebulous, so who knows what he means?
  10. Not "first match in that area ever," just first AEW show in that area. Best guesses are Defy (Seattle area) or PWG (Los Angeles). Better odds are on it being Defy as AEW would want Danielson's first big hometown pop to happen on one of their shows.
  11. I might rank this below Iron Man 2 & 3. Definitely below Thor 2. What the hell was this supposed to be? We were dozing off on it Saturday and had to finish it Sunday. It was really over-ambitious. When you need an opening crawl and numerous exposition-heavy data dumps, you're trying to do too much. This is a movie that had to teach us all about Celestials, Deviants, and Eternals, their whole background, and then try to make me care about a whole group of superheroes I knew nothing about. Just too much stuff crammed into one movie. Having taken years to bring the Avengers together, you'd think the Marvel folks would understand this is not the way to do it. Jesus what a mess. I agreed with posters who said: Sersi and Ikarus had no chemistry. I don't even know who the guy who played Ikarus was but I agree he looked too much like Bucky. And it's fitting the best role I ever saw Gemma Chan in was playing a robot. "Stare puzzled into middle distance" is her one gear. WTF with Kingo just walking out? Did Kamil quit on the DL? Just fucking show BLADE on film if that's what it was supposed to be. Just ooooof.
  12. Word. I've been watching since 1985 and the rule has always been "if it happens outside, it's legal." Is it somewhat stupid and egregious? Sure, but that's how it's going to be unless you get a promotion that has a real hard on for booking it purely like a real sport.
  13. "Kill a woman and get away with it with Vince's help" was pretty dark for a boss fight.
  14. As you may have already figured, Meltzer says there's most likely nothing to the Cody story. I really just want to watch my simply booked, old school flavored rasslin in peace without this Russo-ass worked shoot bullshit. Cody is maybe two months away from burning an Observer on PPV, right?
  15. “Bunny bled far less than Jamal Khashoggi and you had no problem with that!”
  16. Vince was squeamish about UFC having women fighting. That’s what this is about. Pure misogyny. Fuck him and his pearl clutching concern trolling.
  17. Curb Your Enthusiasm, Silicon Valley, mother fucking BANSHEE.
  18. Spears’ cut this fucking never ending promo! Seriously, after the first point he made, I was like, “nice one!”. But then he kept going. Every time I thought he was finished, he started a new paragraph. But you can’t expect a guy with 16 gimmicks to understand that less is more. I loved that diss track and video. I still have “two grown men and they goin’ through a goth phase” stuck in my head. Loved the Jackass style intro. Should have gone a step further and sampled the Jackass theme but I understand how that wouldn’t be cost effective. That spider crab was disgustingly excellent.
  19. I've only seen one or two recent matches of his but yeah, he's working a "little guy who thinks he's big" gimmick. Everett is up there with Dalton Castle as an indy guy who was poised to hit it big but got sidetracked and never really got back to where he was going to be. I remember a three way in PWG in 2014 featuring the aforementioned Trevor Lee, and Cedric Alexander. Yes, they just bought a package match from North Carolina Anyway, it was a great match that spotlighted Everett's high flying and flippydoos and it was really obvious this was meant to be his coming out party and that he'd be booked more. Then Everett got injured, sort of stopped being a high flyer, and I never saw much out of him since then until I heard he'd been doing some shots for Impact. Meanwhile Trevor Lee became the guy who kept getting booked by PWG after that match, really learned his character and how to get over, and now works for WWE.
  20. Late to the party with random-ass comments: Really tied of looong Go Big Show (AKA Hillbilly AGT) promos. I guess this is the price AEW must pay but it sucks. Loving the ReDRagon/Young Bucks conflict. KINGS OF THE BLACK THRONE MOTHERFUCKERS. I know there are reasons and exceptions for the way things are, but it's funny how WWE pretty much has always treated wrestling like it doesn't exist outside them while AEW treats wrestling like an expansive, living ecosystem. WWE hires the PWG tag champs and they have to change their names and vacate their titles. AEW hires the PWG tag champs and references their team name on TV. AEW's approach is far better and less intelligence-insulting. I too noticed and was not onboard with the booking decision to have two David and Goliath matches back to back. Both ended essentially with rollups as well. Also not sure I love the booking of Punk/Wardlow, which I agree devalues the Punk/MJF match. Also, it was really obvious MJF would throw Spears against Punk next. Shida/Deeb was also very meh. I hate when I expect a good match and just get a shitty angle instead. FTR is going to murder Johnson and Anderson in an effort to get Arn's love. Speaking of Arn, I didn't like Fuego running from him last week. A fit young athlete running from an old guy, who we've seen fall on his ass twice, because he pretended to pull out a gun with his good hand was really dumb. Hobbs looks good with a beard. Hangman/Murderhawk has real WWE Champion Benoit vs Kane at Backlash vibes and that's not a good thing. Between asking "who ees thees keed working for Steeng?" and this promo with Hardy, I love Andrade. FFWD'd through Hardy/Penta. Also FFWD'd through Rappers vs Bears after the intros. Sounds like I made a good choice. Is PAC going to be working a blind wrestler gimmick? Garcia/Sammy was good but god damn am I tired of Jericho. Cody RETURNS next week. Doing an interim title when 1) AEW has never established a mandatory defenses rule and 2) Cody was only out for two weeks was really stupid. If they needed a match for Battle of the Belts, they had options to plug Hangman or Jurassic Express in there. When the babyfaces were beating up Malachai Black, was Julia yelling "THAT'S NOT ENOUGH" or "THAT'S ENOUGH?" Either is fine for a heel turn, just curious though. As Alvarez said, Julia taking off the patch to reveal a diseased eye is the easiest pop. Kind of a meh episode. As many others here have mentioned, too much of the same stuff, weird layout, not too exciting outside of Brody King showing up. Dark Order vs JE should be really fun. I totally agree with @Craig H and @Jiji that AEW really needs to get back to more clean wins. All these screwy finishes are starting to make matches meaningless. TK needs another "why are these shitty creepers beating up our stars with bad punches while everyone shits on it?" moment of clarity.
  21. I know they're focusing on the three main titles, so what does this mean? (from the Terminus card) Are they just doing whatever until the actual reboot?
  22. Playing online after a long layoff. Randos are still hit or miss, mission-wise. They're either experienced and really great OR fucking sociopaths who crash their Shark Card-bought supercar 15 times on the way to the mission and proceed to play like morons. I was just trying to grind on and off for a few days to afford an Agency and do the Franklin stuff. The good news is that Agencies are 25% off this week, so I'm set. Last week I played a lot of Power Play mode since it was 3x cash & RP. It's a fun mode overall but Adversary stuff is also such a shitty mixed bag. My team was getting schooled in a fair fight so most of them quit. Even in losing, the payouts were still good, so I hung with it for two more rounds of 6 on 1, 40 kills wins. It sucked. There's also a really shitty glitch where if you've played the last Dr. Dre mission (which I joined at random by picking "Contact Mission" on the phone), then the LSIA hangar (used in the mission with a wall over the front, forcing you to sneak in the back) has a transparent wall blocking the front of it for any other mission that uses that hangar. That REALLY fucked up my ability to quickly beat Dispatch II. Instead of driving up, bazooking the plane, and driving off, we have to sit and wait for the plane to try to leave, as it hilariously glitches through the wall, then hit it with 2-3 missiles as it takes off. So yeah, putting a wall on the hangar for one mission caused the wall to be there for every other mission. WTF Rockstar?
  23. I just saw newz that Elimination Chamber is scheduled to be the February Saudi event. The good news is WWE can save on shipping, as the Saudi government has a few elimination chambers they can choose from already.
  24. A lot like @cwoy2jI grew up in the mid atlantic (Baltimore) and had similar wrestling experiences. I didn't get cable until I was maybe 14 or 15. I started watching WWF in 85 in the ramp-up to Mania 1, so I would have been 10. I got into JCP shortly after that, like maybe a year later, because a friend of mine and his mom loved it. He had a plastic mug with Magnum TA on it and I had no idea who he was. Thus my Southern rasslin' education began! So TV-wise, without cable, I watched Superstars Saturdays at 11:30pm on channel 11, which was Baltimore's CBS affiliate at the time, and Challenge Saturdays at 4 on UHF channel 45, which is now the Fox affiliate and owned by Sinclair! Crockett was on in syndication Saturdays and Sundays, on the same station, independent UHF channel 54 which I think is also Sinclair now, at noon. At some point, at least for a little while, Watts' UWF aired at 3pm on Saturdays on the same station as Challenge. Always looked forward to Saturday Night's Main Event. I probably liked Crockett a little more then WWF. It was grittier and more realistic. I remember wishing we had front row seats at The Bunkhouse Stampede but my mark friend retorted, "Well what if someone gets it with a 2x4 and flies into our laps?!?!" Amazing. I, too grew up on the Apter mags and, in a pinch, the second tier stuff like Main Event and Wrestling Eye. So yeah, to summarize: I'm old, grew up on the big 2 in syndication in Baltimore, like Crockett slightly more.
