  1. I've been trying to get my friends into NXT. And the the thing that finally did it? Enzo and Cass. They barely even cared about how they wrestled, they just wanted to see them win. The pre-match schpiel is infectious. Maybe being the new New Age Outlaws isn't so bad a gig. Update!: Since we're Canucks, they were also in to Owens and his vaguely French Canadian accent.
  2. Oh Dave Mastif. Will you ever hit that somersault into the corner? You scamp.
  3. Battle of What's Worse: Rebound Lariat vs Stupid Predator Dreadlock Wig.
  4. Big Show line of the week: STOP CHANTING THAT DUMB STUFF. Not as good as I DID MY MOVE but I still laughed.
  5. I just had a random thought and I hate to armchair book but they would've been clever to book Miz and Mizdow in program with the Dust Bros, turn Cody at Mania and then have Mizdow save Goldie from the ensuing beatdown to cement that break up too. That would've been rad. Anyway...
  6. Future is bright for both these young studs. I think this feud will cement them in WWE's legacy.
  7. Somebody post that deadlift German Neville did on Owens. Oh! And that apron superplex Cesaro did on Cena. This won't help anyone decide but they sure were awesome.
  8. Josh Ingram looks up from his copy of PWI and regards the ring cooly. "My word," he says. "This giant, beast of a man who can hit Shooting Star Presses like it's nothing might just make it in the big leagues." The universe applauds his wisdom.
  9. Neville has improved leaps and bounds this year whereas Cesaro had some serious backsliding before finding his feet again teaming with Kidd. Some of that was the booking, yes, and his in ring work was never in question, but some of it was on him. Of course, it's hard to show a lot growth when you're booked to lose for months on end...
  10. That was actually the first match that came to my mind too but I felt like that weird German from the apron was too awkward and contrived. I know, I know, one move doesn't make the match but I still feel it was a flaw in an otherwise amazing match.
  11. Since both guys had so much time off, I decided to judge them by the moments they had. Daniel had 2 great moments, both at Mania. Brock had 2 great moments, Mania and Summerslam, plus that final stretch at the Rumble from when he rushes the ring like a rabid bear to the final counter into the F5. I'm giving Lesnar the edge this year but just barely.
  12. Nah. People were speculating on that match and Miz/Mizdow but when is the last time something that low on the card got featured at Wrestlemania? If anything the Dusts being in the ladder match is a big step up from being battle royal filler.29 had Miz/Barrett, Ryback/Mark Henry, and Jericho/Fandango, all of which had less story behind them than the Dust Bros feud.
  13. I'd have to watch it again (for the 100th time) but Hart/Austin at WM13 seemed to work perfectly, especially for such a tricky concept.
  14. Oriskany, NY, must be a section of Boston.
  15. Isn't he generally regarded as one of the better trainers going these days? I mean, he's no Kevin Dunn, but that's something.
  16. Would you care to elaborate? What did he do on the indies that made you think "this guy will never succeed in the WWE?"I just didn't get it. I checked out a bunch of his matches when people were hyping him up and I didn't see anything in him. It doesn't help that I think he has a terrible look and that's 90% of getting over in WWE. (At least in their minds)But in the spirit of March Madness, I'm more than willing to watch some recommendations. And trust me, I'd love to be proven wrong. Did you watch the series he did with Fit Finlay? i would start there, I think that's when the conversation started to shift from "Good deathmatch worker who can hold his own" to "This guy can have matches that other people can't". I'll definitely track those down. I saw the mini-documentary about one of their matches on YouTube and it certainly looked harrowing.

  18. These guys are very even in my brain. They're both on the downswing of great runs at the top. They both have really annoying affectations (Tana's air guitar and Cena's salute or more recently the Never Give Up hanky). They both have really hit or miss offense. My instinct is to go with Cena because he's gotten me more engaged in his matches, but those have mostly been with opponents I was more into than him. On the other hand, I really don't like Doc Gallows and I watched that whole match from the first post and didn't hate it. I might need another day to watch you guys argue before I can decide.
  19. I knew a very flamboyant club kid who had a pair back in the day. He had no idea they were wrestling related and was really bored when I told him about it.
  20. That is actually exactly how I thought Crowe's debut would go. I've never really been a fan.
  21. Wrong thread. But while I'm here, does anyone else think the Dust Brothers might have been slated for a blow off/retirement match of some sort but blew it at Fastlane so they got shoved into the Ladder Match of a 1000 Participants?
  22. Hechicero is going to be the victim of stylistic preference. I like him, I can tell he's a great at what he does, but as somebody who's tried and struggled to get into lucha I just prefer watching Sami. Can't be helped.
  23. This is so disappointing. Jericho use to my favourite guy but between this and the shape his mid-life crisis is taking my respect for him has dropped so much,
  24. So does Rusev/Cena have a stip? And if so, which one? Submission match? I Quit? Flag match? Dog collar match? Is it dog collar match? IS IT?!
