  1. I can still remember the day I bought Power Move Pro Wrestling.  There were ZERO good PS1 wrestling games at the time and the game came out of nowhere...I remember reading its name in the "coming soon" binder at Electronics Boutique.  I picked it up at the mall on day 1 and had to work that night, so I had to tide myself over by reading the manual in the car before work.  😄

  2. Spent the morning gathering hidden packages in Portland.  I will say the implementation of rain in this games is godawful.  Just the fucking dirt worst.  Apparently, the rain is not a 3D object but rather a 2D overlay over the whole screen.  Regardless, raindrops are not supposed to be thick white rectangles that fall in a perfect pattern and make it impossible to see anything.

  3. It cannot be stated enough what a miserable, soul crushing place that must be to work for.

    Kiss Vince's ass, but not too much, or he'll lose respect for you.

    Fight for yourself, GRAB THAT BRASS RING PAL~!  and gain Vince's respect, but not too much, or you'll be deemed "difficult."

    Petty, schoolyard bullshit and humiliations to keep you in your place.

    Get hired by people who know exactly who you are and what you bring to the table, only to be told to change all that.

    Do everything right, sell lots of merch, get fired anyway.

    We're hearing about mental health from people at AEW.  Can you imagine what personal hell WWE workers are going through?

    You may remember the "Cannon" guest star megamix on YT a while back, but how about taking it to 11 and doing a 46 1/2 minute montage of every guest star who boarded "The Love Boat" ...

     

     

    I need one of these but for Miami Vice because the list of guest stars/people who became something later is incredible.

    As you can imagine, that wasn’t viewed well, wanting to talk to Vince over the result of a match on Main Event that almost nobody would ever see outside of Canada.

    Calling a wrestler petty for refusing to do a meaningless job...

    .....after specifically assigning that meaningless job as punishment.

    Vince: "Go ahead and eat this pile of shit!  It's punishment!" 

    Dorado: "No way!  I'm not eating a pile of shit!"

    Vince: "Why are you so uncooperative?"

    Motherfucker is so petty, no wonder their viewership is free falling.

    Messing around with the Pro-Wrestling 2 on PS1.

    Simple-1500-Series-Vol-052-The-Wrestler-

    Is the the one that’s a Japanese budget version of one of the Yukes WWF PS1 games?

    Listening to Norton on Jericho’s pod has me itching to fire up Power Move Pro Wrestling (King Ogg!) or Toukon Retsuden 3 on my modded PS Classic.

    Listened to this this morning and loved it. James and Jimmie are awesome. All of their wrestling episodes are amazing. Buff Bagwell went on Cameo and cut a promo on them because they made fun of his top hat during this episode.LOLZ.

    Speaking of Buff on Cameo, on the latest We Watch Wrestling, Vince Averill bought a Buff Cameo for cohost Matt McCarthy’s birthday and it was insane.  Buff gave out his phone number and dropped such gems as, “ I’d do anything to my fans” (not “for,” “to”) and “ glow in the bask of Buff!”  He was clearly not in control of his faculties for the Cameo and 3/4 of it was Buff wrapping up.  It went on and on.

    He must have said “party your ass off!!  (And be safe)” 18 times.

  8. Working from home the rest of this week...combo of running/walking yesterday (my legs are killing me as I try to get back into this) and today was freeweight and bodyweight stuff in the basement.  The injury and operation layoff apparently did kill off a lot of my strength, as I could only muster ONE pushup!  I did the knees-on-the-floor style instead 😄

    So the partner Omega could never live up to was Chuck Taylor, right?

    He kept feeling really insecure, worried his moral fiber wasn't low enough.

    My wife is the best and knows that I love watching AEW on wednesday nights.  She's always great about taking care of the kid stuff if it pushes into that time.

     

    Same here!!!

    Also, relationship advice shamelessly stolen from Reddit: "Find someone who talks about you the way JR talks about Wardlow."

    JR low key shitting on the "four pillars" branding because Wardlow isn't one of them is certainly a thing.

    I agree with what you're saying but is it possible to at least the censor the F word?  Even in quotes that's not something that should spelled out.

    That is the entire point of why I wrote exactly what I did. 

    If "twinkletoes" doesn't bother people, maybe seeing the other word written out will make them uncomfortable enough to think twice about what they're supporting.

    Fuego 2 is going to be Cody's way to a world title shot.

    Brilliant!!

    OHHHH SHIIIIIIT that's the 4D chess we're always talking about.  He makes you think he's working a throwaway C show comedy deal, but really he's 2021 Midnight Rider.  Just when you think you've got the answers, Cody changes the questions.

    Where was the logic behind even bringing back Eva Marie putting her back in the ring and re-signing her as a wrestler again?

    Vince is getting up there in age.  I have good money on "he forgot they'd had her on the roster before and nobody had the balls to tell him."

    We're seriously 3-5 years from Vince demanding they raid that Hogan kid from Verne.

    I guess it's just more trying to figure out people here, where they draw the line. To me, it's absolutely bonkers that anybody still listens to a word that dude says despite him being a real piece of shit human. At what point do you say, "okay his insights are great but I gotta stop supporting this dude's work"?

    This is exactly what gets me.  I like everyone here despite some disagreements and heated exchanges from time to time.  I have decent opinions of most of you.  So I'm kind of boggled by the "take the good with the bad" approach to Cornette that I can't see decent people taking.  How much is too much?  If he outright called Kenny a "faggot" instead of slyly saying "twinkletoes," would that be enough for you?  If he tossed out the N word for Jade and called her a tranny or shemale instead of saying the oh so clever "looks like Shelton Benjamin in drag," would that be enough?  He's mixing up his Japanese women and saying "it doesn't matter!"  Ostensibly because all those nip slant bitches look alike and are just fetish toys for yellow fever weeaboos, right bros? 

    I mean Jesus fucking Christ, how much hate speech is enough for you to say, "I don't care about this guy's good content, I can't tacitly support hate anymore?"  Y'all just denying it and looking the other way because he's being 1% more covert about it than the racist uncle you try to avoid on Thanksgiving.

  14. @ShartnadoSome kind of weird connective tissue injury?  If it's still bad in a week, get it checked out!  I once severely fucked up the tendons in my wrist doing dumbbell bench presses.  60 in each hand and instead of keeping the weights stable, my wrist decided to bend to the outside with the weight in my hand.  All that torque fucked my shit up.  Had to wear a brace 24/7 for a month.

    Still not my worst workout injury.  That award goes to herniating a disc in my neck doing lat pulldowns.

  15. Did some lifting today!  10 exercises, three sets each, 8-12 reps.  Essentially, the old time lifting method of "shoot for 8-12 reps in your first set and if you can do more than 12, you need to up the weight."  Did a combination of machines and dumbbells.  I'm stronger than I thought I'd be so that's good.  What's helping is that I'm back in the office a few days a week and we have a really good gym.  It'll be tougher on my days at home because it's light free weights, bodyweight exercises, and running on our treadmill or outside in the cold.  Doing my best, though.

  16. As I mentioned in the other thread, Eddie is more Dusty the character than either of Dusty's own kids.  Chubby, charismatic working man, won't win them all (or even most), but will damn sure always be in the fight.  Always real.  You could definitely see him in the alley eating pork and beans.

    I need to read the article but one of the funniest Eddie stories was one he told on a podcast.  It's better if you hear it in Eddie's voice...he was young and he stepped to his mom.  His dad grabbed him with the quickness and yelled JUST REMEMBAH!  SHE WAS MY WIFE BEFORE SHE WAS YOUR MUTHA!

    So y'all are just cool with Corny's not-so-casual racism and he and his wife sexually harassing/assaulting talent? 

    Cool, cool cool cool. 

     

    Don't forget the not so casual homophobia and transphobia as well.  And whatever the Venn diagram between all his bullshit is (for example, when he says Jade Cargill looks like Shelton Benjamin in drag, does that fall in the racist bucket or the transphobic bucket?).  I'd love to hear a non-defensive answer to this question.
