  1. Portland has got to finally blow it up in the off-season. They can't keep dragging this out.
  2. Thibodeau would run that poor boy's ankles into dust by the all-star break.
  3. I watched Bullet Train yesterday, and while I wouldn't even necessarily say that I liked it, as soon as it was over I kinda wanted to start it again.
  4. One of the benefits of having a villain with infinite variants is how easy he is to recast.
  5. My top 3 in no particular order are Hayter/Sakura from Rampage, Mox/Hangman from Revolution, and either Danielson/MJF or Danielson/Bandido
  6. He's still digging. Also, "breast nipples"?
  7. Nah, Blitzkrieg's career was perfect. Came out of nowhere, gave us 25 TV matches of some of the wackiest flips you've ever seen, and then disappeared as suddenly as his came because he could make more money at his IT job and still have his knees work. A proper wrestling legend.
  8. On the one hand I think Punk is pretty full of shit, but on the other he is right about Jericho. Much to consider...
  9. Oh yeah, absolutely a team that I didn't appreciate at the time but love going back to now. I feel like the Gunns are doing a great job as the modern successors to the PG-13/Too Much Shitass Heel Tag Team throne.
  10. Honestly the biggest reason I wouldn't want them to go this route is heel Yuta as Pure champ just being dickish and stretching people. It also occurred to me last night that we might finally be getting the Stop The Moxley angle you predicted.
  11. I have also been wondering this! My guess would be that Claudio (and maybe Yuta) lose their title(s) next week and this becomes an all-AEW deal. Before the Elite got involved I would have given it 50/50 odds but this seems to be the main event angle that they're going with since MJF doesn't have a defined program right now.
  12. Feels like the obvious endgame is for the BCC's continuing degeneracy to be the thing that finally pulls Danielson back to AEW to either redeem them or, barring that, kick their fucking heads in.
  13. Punk cannot join the BCC, Dynamite is not long enough for Wild Thing and Cult of Personality every single time they come out.
  14. Another one from a Schneider comp that didn't seem to be on the internet anywhere: Crusher Blackwell vs Butch Reed from Central States. A pretty simple match: Blackwell is gigantic and more experienced, Butch Reed is fired up and strong as hell. Blackwell is a pretty agile fat guy and really gets up for his stuff and Reed really oozes charisma and times all his comebacks well.
  15. Also that guy is right his hedges look like shit.
  16. We already had a reimagining of Day of the Jackal where Jack Black got his arm blown off by a cannon so I don't know how they'll improve on that.
  17. This was on a Schneider comp back when and I've always dug it. Goto cuts off Tenryu's boot so he can pound on his ankle, and Tenryu counters by kicking Goto in the face with his bare foot. Lots of semi-unprofessional punches and lariats are thrown, so it's got a real "two old guys fighting at the sake bar" vibe in parts.
  18. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ivN1d8Bl60 I will keep pimping this match until it is no longer a hidden gem: Terry Funk, Dustin Rhodes, JBL vs Jerry Lawler & Too Much from Shotgun in 98. 10 minutes of near-perfect tv wrestling.
  19. Bro you gotta share Destiny Harden's post-game interview, too:
  20. Having the house shows set up angles for TV is not a use case that I'd anticipated.
  21. Anderson has coached for 21 seasons without a losing record or a major scandal that I can recall. In a just world he would be one of those dudes that spends his entire career at one mid-major and they, like, rename the town for him when he retires.
  22. Fucking over Mike Anderson, who is supposed to be one of the nicest guys in college ball, to hire a famous scumbag is a little on-the-nose with the villainy.
  23. Because we are living life on hard mode we found out on Friday that when my wife broke her leg she also ruptured her patellar tendon. So I guess we'll deal with that whenever her bone heals.
  24. Nope, that was the first thing I checked.
  25. Is a Barbarian close enough to a Viking?
