  1. That time Andy Warhol took Dusty Rhodes to a dance club after a WWWF show at MSG
  2. All I see when Jericho does the Painmaker gimmick is Glen Osbourne. I want to see him work Silvermane on the midcard of a PCW show.
  3. My biggest beef with AEW in general is them taking things that are fine used sparingly and to serve a specific purpose (swearing, ref distraction spots, CM Punk's entrance) and wildly overuse them.
  4. Ms Marvel is apparently done filming but it sounds like they might hold that til closer to The Marvels.
  5. Gotta say I really like Starks on commentary, mostly because he doesn't try to do too much. Picks his spots and tries to add a wrestler's point of view or some kind of insight when he does talk.
  6. Damn, I had never heard of Frank Andersson but he looks awesome. All kings of cool suplexes and amateur wrestling shit, plus super agile.
  7. Further adventures of introducing wrestling to my wife, Malakai Black/Dante Martin edition: "Oh, I really like this. It seems more like what I think of wrestling in my head instead of just one guy doing his moves and waiting for the other guy to do his moves." If I don't screw this up I'm pretty sure I can get my wife to watch Battlarts with me.
  8. It's changed even in the year and a half since I last looked. Shit is crazy now. The good news is the tight labor market means everybody is hiring, so long as you can sort through the chaff.
  9. Is it cash or open bar? That's how you tell if it's hell or just purgatory.
  10. I finally got to watch Suzuki/Danielson and goddamn that was as good as everybody said. I'm not a huge fan of the I-hit-you-you-hit-me strike exchanges but they sort of worked in this case with Suzuki getting overconfident and eating some hard shots that let Danielson start to build an advantage. The matwork was amazing and I wish there was more of it; both of these guys are really great at realistically feeding limbs and transitioning into counters in a way that doesn't look too cooperative. That elbow from Suzuki that opened a cut on Danielson's jaw? Effin' beautiful, and a great sell from Danielson.
  11. Sure, Texas will have lost in humiliating fashion to both Oklahoma teams in back-to-back weeks, but all of their players will stand up for I've Been Working On The Railroad so who are the real winners here?
  12. Simple: 1)Trash Simmons publicly and privately, alienating him from the team and hurting his trade value 2)Ask for a return on a trade that would have been laughable even before you did step 1 3)Process! 4)Ringzzzz, baybeee I cannot believe the Sixers have made me sympathetic to Ben Simmons but here we are.
  13. I'ma guess that "current" is doing some insanely heavy lifting in that headline.
  14. Did the cameras miss something in the six-man? The crowd was chanting holy shit right before JDS got put through the table.
  15. I found some unmarked DVDs while cleaning that turned out to be wrestling, including a Schneider Comp that had this on it; Strong Kobayashi vs Andre The Giant from 72 As the kids would say, this match fucks. Andre is still young and spry and Kobayashi is an amazing prick dragging him to the mat with all kinds of nasty headscissors and armlocks, throwing nasty punches to the face and body while he has him in the holds and stomping him every chance he gets. And while Andre isn't going to make you forget Billy Robinson he hangs with Kobayashi on the mat just fine It goes on a little long but goddamn this rules.
  16. I really didn't think they could make job hunting shittier, but the absolutely non-stop calls, e-mails and texts from incredibly scammy 'recruiters,' most of which are pushing jobs that are either clearly not in my skillset or are $15/hr customer service jobs halfway across the country from me, have managed to do it. Hats off.
  17. When it comes to the children, RVD is for the children. He teaches the children.
  18. Zion is still out with a foot injury and is getting re-evaluated in two weeks. The most that the Pels will commit to is that they expect him back "sometime in the regular season," which doesn't sound great. He's also put back on a fair bit of weight based on his preseason photo. To be expected since he's been injured for the offseason but it does mean that when he does come back he'll have to play his way back into shape. Seems like the Pelicans are gonna be going through it again this year.
  19. Alex Lasry is already running ads for his Senate campaign here so I think I have to stop being a Bucks fan.
  20. This is very cute E: Also I was playing Guacamelee last night and had never realized that Player Uno appears on some of the billboards in the game, so that was neat.
  21. Lot of ass-showing going on today: "I'm not a journalist, here's how journalism works"
  22. Dibiase. Favre hasn't faced any charges so far, just a civil demand.
  23. We finally have a measuring stick for how deep the shit Ted Dibiase & sons are in: The tweet is slightly incorrect: Ted Sr owes about $775k, Ted Jr the $4.6M. Brett has already pled out to charges and turned state's witness.
