  1. Watching the '96 KOTR. Everyone only remembers Austin's speech but there was an awesome, underrated main event with Shawn and Davey. Great pacing - good mixture of technical work and high spots. Everything in the match has a purpose and means something. This feels kind of like what Bret/Shawn at WM should have been structure wise. One big goof where Davey goes to the top rope for no reason and basically trips and falls, and the finish with 2 refs is wonky, but I'd say it's the 3rd best WWF match of 1996 behind Bret/Austin and Shawn/Foley.
  2. Honestly a bit surprised they released this piece of shit. Realize 2K only cares about money but even delaying the release would have at least given the impression of pretending to care.
  3. Looks like a PS2 game. Why didn't they just keep the graphics from last year? Was Yukes that important? Really, really hope this game bombs.
  4. It's amazing how unappealing the current product is. Nothing else to say, really.
  5. Didn't watch, just caught the main event today. Seth Rollins is really bad at selling.
  6. It's not WWE until a pretty girl plays a slut. Thanks, Vince.
  7. So AJ and Seth are in the same storyline? Drew should win the Rumble. It's amusing that Dean actually wrestles wearing a gold chain. I'd like to see a few full matches still wearing the pimp jacket.
  8. Is AJ taking time off? Is he injured? Either of those would really suck. I want him on my tv every Tuesday. We can debate whether or not the title switch should have happened now, but DB is CLEARLY better as a heel, so I like the move. Gonna be uber pissed if Brock injures him though. Assuming he's not injured, AJ has to win the Rumble now, right?
  9. No way I would have Becky lose on Sunday. They probably will, but it's stupid. I'd even accept a screwy finish under these circumstances. Lesnar just bores me at this point. Heyman is still amazing, obviously. Totally down for a Balor/Drew match at TLC.
  10. I would be fine with Drew being the guy to beat Lesnar for the belt, honestly. Put the IC strap on Elias. He's actually pretty hot right now and Seth is stale, plus he's gotta build the program with Dean. Finn needs to be on Smackdown. His talent is going to waste. Could have some good work with Nakamura, Styles, Bryan, etc.
  11. He's a Republican in TN. Pretty sure he could eat a baby and still win.
  12. I almost wish Roman hadn't done the speech last week, just turned in the belt and announced it on twitter or something. You'd know these bastards would do this. Man does Shawn move slow. It's what you would expect, but still. That match is going to be painful.
  13. The turn was done brilliantly. I genuinely feel sorry for Joe Anoa'i. Nothing more to add.
  14. Of course they're protecting Ronda, she's the biggest star in the company with a legit fighting background. She shouldn't ever lose. MAYBE to Asuka or Charlotte at Wrestlemania by shenanigans. Fuck DX. Man, I loved their stuff in 1997. I was a 12-year-old kid doing the crotch chop behind the teacher's back in middle school. But now in 2018? Shawn just has to pull a Michael Jordan and screw up the perfect finish to a career. Have fun, peanut head. Finn Balor and Bayley together - how perfect. Both workers who came in with great potential and hype, only to be poorly booked into permanent mid-card status. I might be the only one who doesn't care about the Shield. Don't care for them as a tag team or singles wrestlers.
  15. We've kind of said it jokingly back and forth for years, and perhaps there were elements of truth, but now it's not at all hyperbole to say that Vince has completely lost touch.
  16. I'm also just really exhausted by the WWE "big match" style. Love Rock/Austin and Taker/Shawn, but it's just boring at this point. Honestly think a lot of the fatigue is Cena doing that in all his big matches, but maybe that's just me.
  17. Wrestlemania has become it's own worst enemy, it's just an overbooked spectacle, it's not wrestling. As already mentioned, everyone gets booked. Gone are the days where HBK and Razor can say fuck the other guys, we're putting on a classic. And when you finally have an opportunity (AJ/Nak) they book it as being "OMG greatest match eva!!!" for two months and put it in hour 6 when the crowd is long gone and it can't possibly deliver. If the show was 3 hours long again, we would be talking about it in a more positive fashion. I did enjoy Charlotte vs. Asuka.
  18. So I've only been watching Raw casually lately, but thank God Seth got rid of those flame pants. Yikes. Eddie Guerrero did it right. But he was definitely the MVP last night.
  19. Is Brock legit hurt? It's 2017 and HHH and Shane McMahon end a PPV...yay...
  20. There's nothing more tired in all of pro wrestling than Stephanie. Nobody EVER gets one over on her.
  21. I wouldn't blame any wrestler that works for that company for protesting the shitty booking. Sami shouldn't be losing right now, he just made the turn and he's one of the most interesting parts of the show. This just happens way too often now, the matches don't really mean anything. AJ Styles, the new champion, was pinned clean by Baron Corbin just weeks ago...for what? Jinder Mahal has a long feud with Randy Orton, wins the PPV matches, comes out on top...turns right around and jobs to Orton clean on a random Smackdown. And how is anyone expected to take Balor seriously knowing he could be beaten in minutes by old man Kane? It's fucking stupid and unnecessary.
  22. Watching some random '96-'97 Raws. Observation: HBK heel promos - A, Babyface promos - C. Holy shit is Sid OVER.
  23. All playable characters (Angle, RVD, Batista, 2X Cena) come day one with the Deluxe versions, not just the Collector's Edition. Won't use those guys much outside of Angle, but I'm glad I don't have to wait like I did with the NXT roster last year.
  24. Is Road Dogg to blame for this shit?
