    Best American and Canadian technical wrestler of all time

    My favorite part of this whole thing is the idea that there’s a shortage of Bob Backlund footage.
  2. They have their own dates coming up in some minor league baseball stadiums the first weekend of August. They could easily condense some of the stuff from the tapings for the next couple weeks of TV and then run those three shows as the tournament and show them. It doesn't solve keeping LAX off TV all that time, or the fact that they spent a bunch of money on taping things that would never air, but it would get them out of the immediate mess.

    2017 US INDY/INDIE DISCUSSION THREAD

    For anyone in southern NY/northeast PA, Xcite Wrestling is running a show at NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton at 2:00 this afternoon. The main is Greg Excellent vs Sean Carr for the Xcite title with Ricky Steamboat as special enforcer, and Joe Gacy is wrestling Colin Delaney.

    Wrestling What Ifs

    I think Magnum and Flair trade the belt a couple times and it eventually settles with Magnum. Flair then takes off for New York with Arn and Tully and they have a Horseman run there. Since Flair was a face for a good portion of 1989 anyway, Magnum easily gets plugged into those spots, like feuding with Funk. The Steamboat series doesn't happen, but maybe they run Magnum/Luger for a little while instead. Flair comes back with Arn and Tully, wins the belt back from Magnum, and then things progress mostly the same as they actually did moving on to Sting. Magnum then does the upper card gatekeeper thing for the majority of the rest of his career. Also, Flair in 1988-89 WWF would have been fun. Maybe there's no Megapowers split, and they pick up a third guy to work with Flair, Arn and Tully for a while after the Megabucks angle wraps up. The belt winds up on Flair for sure here, which Hogan then wins back in late 1989 before Flair goes back.

    Fastlane III

    I could see Brock costing Goldberg the match to anger Goldberg into a rematch at Mania. Goldberg can later say that he was done with Brock, but after costing him the belt, he wants one more match with him. Disregard if the match is already announced for Mania, as I don't watch Raw or Smackdown at all.

    No Mercy XII

    They probably have something lined up with Orton and Wyatt where something wacky happens to the ring so that has to go last.

    2016 Non-Festival Concert Thread

    Way late to the party here, but I saw The Pietasters for the first time in ages back in May - they used to come to Wilkes-Barre once a year, but that stopped like 4-5 years ago. They were just as fun as they had been in years past. Also, just got tickets for Blink 182 last night through the Ticketmaster settlement gimmick. Yay to pretending to be 19 again!

    WWE BRAND SPLIT 2.0

    Well he IS a drifter - it wouldn't make sense for him to stay in one place. It also doesn't make sense that he has an announced hometown, but that's besides the point.

    MARCH 2016 - WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    From what I've heard, when one of the supporters clubs did the Ice Bucket Challenge in the stadium, the team's front office was paranoid about the ice water getting on the field because of how strict they are about field maintenance. Even though the place would be well-suited for a PPV, you'll never see it there.

    FEBRUARY 2016 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    The League of Nations needs some reserves right now... I'd love to see this, simply to see if they would bother to try to explain why Hunico is being unmasked as Sin Cara a second time when the inevitable Mask vs. Mask match happens.

    Best Live Sporting Event You Have Been To

    I'm sure this list will increase as I think of more, but three right off the top of my head: 1) July 31, 2015 - Mets vs. Nationals - This was the game with the Wilmer Flores walk-off after nearly being traded earlier that week and crying on the field. Also, Bryce Harper throws a temper tantrum after striking out in the 11th and gets thrown out of the game. 2) 2004 - Bruins vs. Sabres - This was my first live NHL game. After getting lost trying to find someplace to park and missing the entire first period (which taught us to never drive in Boston again), the Bruins score with under 3 seconds in overtime to win the game. 3) 2011 - Bruins vs. Devils - This wasn't a spectacular game by any means, but it's memorable because of the Nordique Nation - over 2000 people from Quebec that came by bus and went to games through the NY metro area over the weekend to show the league they wanted their Nordiques back. They had all sorts of wacky chants that went on throughout the game, and would cheer every time there was 16 minutes left in the period, since it had been 16 years since the Nordiques had moved to Colorado.

    NXT UNSTOPPABLE

    This was a great show. Zayn/Owens was the hate-filled brawl it needed to be, all while working smartly around Zayn's injury - IIRC, the apron bump was the only one he took (and even then he was really watching to make sure he didn't land how and where he shouldn't). The Joe stuff was great, and wasn't even necessary after the Regal stuff, which made it even more awesome. Hopefully he gets new entrance music soon though, as what he came out to last night sounds like the generic stuff they use to dub over music they can't play on the Network. I don't think I can add anything else that hasn't been said about the women's match. How many more times do the girls have to steal the show before they get to be the main on one of these things? Also, announcing MVP goes to Corey Graves for making a joke about Emma teaching Bayley how to commit a misdemeanor, and production MVP goes to whoever runs the Twitter scroll at the bottom of the screen for reminding us that Sylvester LeFort is in fact still alive by putting his tweet on there.

    FEBRUARY 2015 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I almost wonder if this would have been smart to do when they did the "Shield has all the belts" thing - rather than making Ambrose the US Champ, maybe they should have made Reigns the US Champ and gave Ambrose and Rollins the tag belts. That would have forced Reigns to get that singles experience and made him more prepared in-ring for the push he's getting right now.

    Royal Rumble 2015

    Sure, it wasn't a great show, but we got that awesomely ridiculous drunken Rock promo after the event, plus Bubba did the WHAZZUP spot with the guy whose entire gimmick is that he says What's Up. Not a complete loss if you ask me.
