  1. My hope for the Firefly Funhouse match was that they'd try a Freddy Krueger dream battle and that was pretty close. I loved it, and I'm not a Fiend fan prior to this. Rhea/Charlotte was also great.
  2. Brodie Lee may be spoofing VKM but when he sat down and asked the yawning guy, "Are you having trouble at home?" I had immediate flashbacks to the terrible boss I had. So while the specifics may be niche to wrestling nerds, it probably does translate to a general audience. Of course, my boss wasn't over six feet with a big beard and a top knot, that's closer to a cult leader look. I think they have to strike the right balance between the two if it's going to work. I personally don't care for taking shots at the competition (if they backfire, it's far more embarrassing than if you said nothing), but I'm happy to watch someone else exorcise their demons.
  3. At least now I know Big E and I have the same requests for our funeral arrangements.
  4. You got me! I forgot about the women's title. Out of sight, out of mind, I suppose.
  5. I know, I'm saying 2 out of 3 inaugural champs were heels so maybe make this one a face to balance it out.
  6. The inaugural champs so far have been Jericho, MJF, and SCU, feels time for a babyface win. Darby is a good call, but he's almost at that world title level now. I'd give it to Jungleboy. Get Jurassic Express some more momentum plus you start setting the table for Jack as future big name.
  7. Watch alongs would be a great way to fill TV time. You can have people with decent audio setups host from their homes and give some commentary and behind the scenes tidbits. Austin presenting Mania 13 with Bret and/or Taker calling in for a story or two would be great, even if the people on this board would know all the good stories already. I almost suggested Austin and Prichard doing commentary but that would most likely be awful.
  8. Same here. I think it’s the purity of Flair/Steamboat going into the wildness of Flair/Funk that does it for me, the clash in styles highlights how good both matches are. Three of the absolute best at their best.
  9. It's definitely a bummer watching the Miz potentially spreading the virus before our eyes on TV.
  10. Are they? I'm pretty sure it's just those guys having fun.
  11. I would give anything for a program that features Gulak/Nakamura and Bryan/Zayn under normal circumstances (and with Nak giving any kind of shit but that's another matter). Including Cesaro, these are 5 of my favorite wrestlers and all world class talents. I hope we get to see some of it with a crowd eventually.
  12. I've also seen some athletes who got sick say it totally ruins your conditioning so wrestlers should be especially wary. This sounds like a total disaster but it's probably the closest we'll get to a DDT version of Wrestlemania. I hope they shoot pyro at each other and wrestle into a lake.
  13. Not showing was the smartest thing Dolph's ever done.
  14. Whoa, that's the same guy? I had no idea, I thought they just had similar names. Since the dig on Storm was that he lacked charisma, hopefully pretty high. That said, I don't see it with Theory yet. He seems very generic still. Stoked for Dexter and Killer Kross, both guys I've been waiting to see for a while. Not the best time, of course, and it was odd showing two similar vignettes like that but both guys have great presentations. Lumis was also on the NWA pop-up show they just released on YouTube if anyone wants a preview.
  15. As a DS9 mark and someone watching the series now with his girlfriend who's never seen it, that conversation made my week. I'm hoping for a Picard-like revival.
  16. Shawn Spears’ sign: approved or taking advantage of live TV?
  17. LU may have been the peak of Fenix and Pentagon as singles guys, especially the Fenix/Mil Muertes matches, but as a team they had a good feud with Santana and Ortiz in Impact and some stuff in MLW too that's worth checking out. A lot of it is free on YouTube.
  18. Always great to see someone fan out on some wrestling, regardless of the promotion.
  19. Abby has always been a bit of blind spot for me, now's the time to rectify that. He did All Japan, Puerto Rico, and WCW mostly, right? Him vs Brody and Baba are the ones to watch?
  20. Has there ever been an instance of one wrestler blading another that went well? It always seems like they hit a gusher that that’s a little too far. I still remember Dick Togo trying to take the top part of Gran Naniwa’s head home with him in a Michinoku Pro 8-man and it was gruesome.
  21. My weed-fueled conspiracy theory is they're taping all this stuff ahead of time because they already knew they'd been exposed and they're trying to get the content before the whole locker room is too sick.
  22. 32 is pretty bad. League of Nations, Lesnar/Ambrose, and HHH/Reigns as the main event are all terrible. Jericho/Styles was okay but not near the level it could have been. It does have Charlotte/Sasha/Becky for the new title, that one was rad, and Zack Ryder's moment if that's your thing. Odd choice but hey, content is content.
  23. I remember when this went down. My fandom waned after the Invasion angle but when I would check in every now and then and see stuff like this I knew I'd made the right decision, even if that meant missing out on some incredible matches. Wouldn't come back until Daniel Bryan joined NXT.
  24. Leave it to Vince to not consider putting the other wrestlers in the audience. Because in WWE kayfabe all the wrestlers hate each other and fans are the dummies that give him money.
