  1. Cody named his daughter "Liberty," has a MURICA neck tattoo, drives a big pickup truck despite doing zero manual labor, and sort of intimated that he thinks racism is dead.  I'd say he's Infowars' target demo and is just trying to throw us off the scent.  😄  Seriously, if Cody tweeted about Sandy Hook being a false flag, half of us wouldn't bat an eye and half of us would applaud him for continuing whatever Andy Kaufman-esque 4D chess work we suspect him of carrying out.

  2. I'll be so glad when election season is over.  I live in the far-flung DC exurbs so I get the DC/NoVa local news, and the Virginia gubernatorial candidates have been running ads shitting on each other since early Summer.  No shit, they started so early I assumed there was some special election that was happening in August or something.  Nope, just 4ish months of attack ads for a November election.  I'm getting a good laugh out of the Republican candidate's recorded endorsement from the evil orange man who shall go nameless here, though.  It's so generic that it's obvious evil orange man's handlers have pre-written endorsement copy that they just put different names on.  They might as well have gone full-on Kamp Krusty "Mr. Black," as generic and phony as it sounded.

    Begs the question - if the entrance tunnels dictate face/heel, what is Malakai Black?

    By the angle they're going with, he's Clubber Lang, about to invite Brandi back to his apartment to show her what a real man is like.

    HEY WOMAN!  HEY WOMAN!

  4. Cody’s big angle is so nuanced that, to the untrained eye, it looks like it hasn’t gone anywhere in a year and a half.  
     

    I’m joking around but seriously, if they’re doing the Rocky 3 gimmick where Arn is fed up with Cody’s extracurricular bullshit and he’s lost the Eye of the Tiger, that’s literally where they were starting to go during Cody’s first TNT title run and then they abandoned it.

    My big takeaway from the angle so far is that the Cody character hangs around the house after dark dressed to the nines like a real douchebag.

    Except with Paul, he portrayed himself and ECW as underdogs.  Coach Tony doesn't really have to do that.

    And thank god for that, because that shit is tiresome.  I read a recap of this weekend's GCW show and Lauderdale came out and cut at least one, maybe two promos about how NOBODY BELIEVED IN US~! and then they also ran a promo package for the Hammerstein show essentially saying that everyone thinks all their wrestlers are shit for one reason or another BUT WE MADE IT TO THE HAMMERSTEIN~!  Like at some point you need to tell me why your company is worthwhile instead of telling me that you're all a bunch of losers like me and that if I give you my money we can fight the man together.

    WWE stuff

    WWE filed to trademark a new nickname for Roman Reigns,  “The Suplex-orcist” and “The Suplexorcist”. Something Heyman has made up, about banishing Brock Lesnar

     

    That sounds like the nickname I had for that Latino Paranormal Activity movie, "The Mexorcist."

    And calling Roman "The Suplexorcist" is bullshit.  That name needs to go with a gimmick of a wrestling priest who throws heels until the evil leaves them and they become babyfaces.

    Love how people (mostly WWE fan boys) complaining that Danielson vs Suzuki is just some hot shot attempt for attention and has no story behind to care.   I mean the story is pretty obvious to me.  you have this Japanese legend who is on an American trip looking for the best competition.  

     

    Seriously.  I guess, in 2021, it's a crazy idea that this fake sport is being booked like an actual sport and they don't need them fighting over shampoo commercials, haunted dolls, motorcycles, etc.

    I'm more curious of how they'll write out T'challa.  I'm assuming a death offscreen situation?

    Gina Carano had freedom of speech, and for all I care, Wright can join her in the “fired by Disney” club. I think Wright’s situation is more dangerous and harmful, too.

    Honestly, whatever way they decide to kill off T'Challa, just throw Shuri in there too.

    There is no better tradition in our great sport than kneepads over jeans in a street fight.

    Fuck yes.  Cowboy boots, jeans, kneepads over the jeans, and a t-shirt.  Preferably a country music related shirt that the wearer got for free.  Crockett style all day.

    Why yes, I never missed a Bunkhouse Stampede. How did you guess?

    I was going to bring up Mike Graham, but I thought it was Mike kinda haphazardly telling Sullivan he (Mike) would kill Benoit if he was in Kevin's shoes for Chris stealing his wife. I didn't hear about him wanting to stab anyone.

    I thought the story was Graham threatened all four with stabbing because they were considering leaving.  

    Ah, I Googled it and this is apparently from the Nitro book, which is on my to-read list:

    Quote

    "...Benoit led a band of disgruntled workers in asking for their release. Subsequently, Mike Graham - the son of Sullivan’s mentor, Eddie, and a WCW road agent with deep loyalties to the booker - reportedly pulled a knife on the group before Nitro. As a result, and fearing a lawsuit, Bill Busch agreed to offer complete releases to Benoit, Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero and Perry Saturn, and just like that, the heart of WCW’s midcard was gone.”

     

  11. @A_K

    The flip side of that is Goldberg.  Great look, not that good in the ring, and once the streak was over, nobody gave a shit.  This is what you get when a green person gets a winning streak gimmick.  The whole thing is paper thin and two dimensional.  You need some sort of plan for where that person is going to go and who they'll be after they do lose.  As @RunningFromAmerica said, essentially, if someone is dead in the water as soon as they lose, you're doing it wrong.

    People can win and lose.  It's supposed to look like a sport.  One of the worst things about how WWE has evolved over the years into whatever the fuck it is now is the booking approach that says, "how do we get out of this match?" 

    AEW should build Jade like they've built Wardlow.  She can lose to a star and it's fine, because everybody knows she's not there yet.  Nobody thinks Wardlow's not a threat just because he lost to Cody and dropped a very close match to Hager.

    I think I might have mentioned on here before, but my parents recently dropped off all of my old LJN WWF figures for my son (4).

     

    OH SHIT tell him to be really careful with the Bundy.  Drop that fucker on your foot and you're going to the ER.

    IIRC, Benoit didn’t trust Sullivan as Booker due to the situation with Nancy, so he wanted to leave, being champion or not. 

    Also, Mike Graham threatened to stab him and the rest of the Radicals.

    Rocky III > Suburban Commando > Mr. Nanny > No Holds Barred

    Sure, but how many of those films list Hogan, McMahon, and Cocaine as co-writers?

    Didn't this kinda come up in the old school questions thread and the answer was Colonel DeBeers?

    YES.  Not even trying to do an accent despite being from someplace that definitely has an accent is probably worse than doing a fake one.  I don't think too many Dutch South Africans sound like your Polish uncle from Green Bay.

    To continue mixing threads,, I guess it's better than schools getting loans from Conrad. 

    What if the Trump University got loans from Conrad?  WHEN CARNIES COLLIDE!

    Britt is good, but she's not ready to carry Jade and Jade isn't ready to be carried by Britt. And if they do Jade vs Britt, then I assume Jade is winning because having your version of Brock or Sid in the women's division lose this soon seems not smart.

    Oof.  And then it's a question of how soon does the Jade backlash start?  Putting a belt on a green but attractive and jacked worker is not supposed to be AEW's thing.

    The only reason I even thought of that was because I remember one of the Apter mags ran a cover story on Taras Bulba beating Kerry with the clawhold and how that was signifying the downfall of the Von Erich dynasty. I remembered that guy being kinda fat and thinking that didn't jive with Johnny K-9's body type.

    I saw it happen on TV!  Living in Baltimore, we could get a DC independent UHF station (channel 50) that, in 1989, ran wrestling every weekday at 6pm.  World Class, Global, AWA, GLOW.  I still remember it and it was such a cool, simple way of getting a new monster over.

    When you pump out a ton of podcasts with lazy hosting and lazy content that all wind up sounding the same, you're going to eventually drive those listeners away not only from your own podcasts

    Yeah, it seems like all of his podcasts start off really good and go downhill from there once they devolve into schtick.

    Exactly.  I stopped listening A) when it was obvious Prichard was just a lying carny trying to stay in Vince's good graces and B) when Schiavone's show just became schtick devoted to selling show catchphrase-related t-shirts.

    He wasn't the more "famous" Taras Bulba from World Class though.

    Thanks for that!  I was really confused and thought I had some Mandela Effect shit going on because I swore the guy I saw beat Kerry wasn't K-9.

    Can somebody explain the whole "scrape his lungs" thing?  Also, remember, his biker pal figured he got a hot shot/hot dose from someone who wanted to kill him.

    And then the actual boxing match is fucking hilarious because they both just block shots with their face like under CCCP rules you're not allowed to block punches or something.

     

    LOL That's every Rocky movie!  More unprotected shots to the head in one fight than in the entire run of the original ECW. 

    I just hope, somewhere in those additional 40 minutes, they put the decades-old debate to bed by once and for all answering the burning question, "is it east versus west or man against man?"

    WHAT THE FUUUUCK!!! YEEEEESSSSSSS!!!

    Rocky 4 - Recut and with new scenes

    I hope they add 3-4 more montages!  😄

    I love this movie but watching it after listening to the Rewatchables episode about it just ruins the film because the podcast really called attention to the overuse of montages in the movie and then you can't unsee it.  Holy shit, I just Googled "how many montages" and Google automatically filled in "in Rocky 4"  LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL.  I just saw this on IMDB:

    Quote

    It has been calculated that Rocky IV is 31.9% montages, nearly a third of the film. During the second half of the film, or the last 50 minutes, it is approximately 50% montage.

    Honestly, there's a spot in the film where they do a montage, about a minute of actual stuff, then another montage.
