  1. I can’t believe that story has survived so long on life support. The story about Sting being out of shape is nothing but something Hogan came up with, that Eric has stuck with over the years because of course his biggest fear is not being Hogan’s 4th in line when he wants somebody to suck his d*^%. Say Sting looking like crap is true...ok...lies are often fabricated from the truth of another matter. Gaslighting, leaving 1 or 2 things off the table. That doesn’t make the lie being told into the truth. It just didn’t matter. Sting had to win. Hogan didn’t want him to and that’s that. And like I said in the Montreal thread...if I could mash a button and bet on a race around the building between Sting and Hogan that night in 1997 I’m betting all the money in my pocket on Sting. And if anybody wanted to give me a loan I wouldn’t need to be persuaded much to bet on Hogan needing an ambulance halfway through the race. It’s not like that had ever been a standard for being champion anyway. Maybe it should have been, but that’s another discussion. The last champion who was both in shape and physically attractive was actually Sting...7 years ago. Jeeze we’d seen people wearing that belt who looked like they were about to die like Flair when he was sick in 1991, a man suffering from a disease (The Giant), Vader who was...Vader. Now hold on...I love those guys and I’m not judging them. I’m just showing how incredibly stupid that story is that Hogan came up with. And Hogan. Yeah Hogan was also champion on days where he could barely walk to the ring with his knee.
  2. Hot dang that was great. I liked 3 points that he made the most. Muta was “effortlessly cool.” His moves had an “athletic snap.” That describes Muta’s exclusive way he did moves in a nutshell. There was just something neat about it. And of course Gary Hart in general. He was a part of it that had to be there even if he was never the centerpiece. Without him it probably doesn’t work initially. What was the deal at Halloween Havoc 89 seriously? Was the fire at the beginning rigged? Dumb question perhaps but if it was rigged it was random and I’ve never heard anybody take credit for the idea. That’s 1 of those ideas that a million people would take credit for over the years it seems like, similar to The Gladiators. Of course if it wasn’t rigged it’s a miracle a bunch of other things didn’t happen.
  3. Trying to hard. Fans popped for Hogan the night he came back as the Hulkster to but...you know
  4. Sting winning like planned would have avoided the same fate, especially if we’re assuming that everybody would have just got along and none of this had anything to do with anything but bare bones booking. Ok forget the Raven match. That still leaves 3. Scott Hall because he won WW3, Flair because that was the plan for his return originally, and Hart which had been a dream match for people for forever. Everybody knew what was going on in that building come on.
  5. Whew I don’t know what show you were watching. That finish was a heartbreak and an insult even. You could say it killed Sting after I guess...the night after when they did a rematch that was 1 of the worst Monday main events of all time. The crowd was dead silent the whole time. Sting never actually had Hogan beat like Mankind had The Rock beat before he was hit with the chair. That’s why that win was acceptable.
  6. I don’t know why you’re hung up what the next draw would have been. They had the 3 good enough matches already that I already said. 4 if you count Raven. When I used him as an example of another match earlier it was because the dirt sheets were saying he was going to feud with Sting for a whole second. Those matches were out there by design to headline a secondary ppv or 2 until they came up with the next big plan. They didn’t even need to have an immediate plan. They needed to finish the plan they had that they built up for 2 years. To halfway justify them not doing that because there was no giant 2 year plan up next is just dumb. Also about the crap rest of Starrcade. Yeah it definitely was that but that was Hogan’s fault to. He wussed out, so then Nash wussed out, so then Raven wussed out. We were out 3 matches that were supposed to be on the biggest show in the company’s history. Dean Malenko tried to wuss out to if you remember and Eric Bischoff’s explanation there is the biggest joke...had to put his foot down he said. Yeah that really showed everybody not getting 4 times. Only 3. Anyway that was all Hogan’s fault because none of those other guys will admit it, but they were all in with WCW back then. They had their suspicions yeah but they were all in until Hogan did what he did. That’s when they said fuck this in their hearts even though they didn’t say with their mouths right yet.
  7. I’m so behind on everything. I just learned about Muta’s last match. I wouldn’t have guessed that they would have went all the way back to Sting and Kabuki but it’s cool as heck that they did. I don’t know how the work rate measured up but I wouldn’t doubt that it was 5 stars in the farewell payoff department. I wish we could get some kind of shoot or something with Muta and Sting. They wrestled each other in their 1989 feud more than they did Flair, who is the one everybody associates with their beginning. They really never quit feuding kind of like Sting and Flair. Whenever one of them showed up in the other one’s town it was to wrestle him.
  8. It would be a Jerry Jones or Mike McCarthy move to watch last weeks game and be so narrow minded to then decide that they need to work on kicking all week...and nothing else. 49ers might win 33-9 while Maher is 3/3.
  9. I didn’t see the play but I’ve been saying for a long time what I think Brian is saying, in addition to what he already said, if that makes any sense (as much sense as the rules right). They usually call things correctly by rule, especially catches and incompletions, but the rules are written so that they cancel out common sense.
  10. We’ve seen the real SB in the CCG before, but we might have 2 SBs this year with 1 being in the DG. Bills/Bengals. I respect the Chiefs but they’re catching a real break getting the winner of that game IMO. I just don’t know how many bullets those 2 teams can take. If 1 of them wins the SB it will be a historic run. And the Eagles/49ers needs no explanation. That game is going to be straight out of the 90s IMO.
  11. The 1 time McCarthy smiled was when that kicker made that last kick. That was a Pee Wee game on an NFL field. The kicker missed all but 1 kick, then when he made 1 it was the pop of the night. They ran the option and they played hard until the end no matter what the score was. It was great lol!
  12. This is the same Nash who faked a heart attack to get out of doing a job, then came up with a secondary story that was the wonderful improvement that he ate a whole pan full of buzz brownies. He’s done nothing but pout and cry about something or another for the longest time now. When he manages to dry up, he gets right back on the Hogan sized lies that he sticks to just like Hogan does. I’m sorry about his boy, but without touching that subject I got a long ass way to go before I’ve kicked Nash as many times as he kicked Ricky Morton when he was down. What did Ricky Morton do to him anyway? I don’t want Nash to do the worst here, but I don’t want to pretend that he was ever some great person either. I think some things that he sent around have came back around. It will happen to everybody including us.
  13. When’s the last time before Rodgers a quarterback’s lost to the Lions 3 times in a row? I can’t find it anywhere.
  14. He didn’t try the Hailmary and he keeps throwing 4 YD dirt balls under pressure. I think he’s really just trying not to have his last pass be an INT like it was in NE, like Rodger’s was if he retires, Brees, etc.
  15. Well I’ve learned again not to judge by the first drive. But still...is this that much different than the Colts game? The Bucs aren’t really a playoff team. They’re just a playoff team. In any case that touchdown Dak threw to the TE in the back of the endzone was straight out of 90s Favre. It was a rope running opposite his arm strength to a receiver in that same direction. The kicker is being paid to miss and the feds need to investigate.
  16. McCarthy is the worst coach I swear. The Cowboys have clear strengths and weaknesses on offense. They’ve lost to the Bucs twice in a row trying to force their weaknesses. So what does he do on the first series? Call 3 plays in a row that are their weakness. Now he’s standing there studying his little sheets as if something else is the problem so he can do it again the next series.
  17. I’m surprised he didn’t start every sentence with “I feel like”
  18. Another thing about the 3 peats. The team that sweeps usually gets some kind of break. The 49ers got an upgrade at quarterback. The fact that it wasn’t an upgrade from old Montana to young Steve Young doesn’t matter. It was still an upgrade in their case at this time.
  20. Yeah they employ Cris Collinsworth. All you need to know about NBC’s judgement on men.
  21. The Eagles and 49ers are going to do things to these other teams that we can’t comprehend IMO.
  22. The Bills have been a takin care a bidness team all season. They had more mistakes than usual today but anybody whose ever done any bidness has done that. So onto wherever they play next will be the end result as usual IMO. Herbert is being judged unfairly I agree. Doug Pedersen is the GOATest coach you don’t know about tbh. He would have 2 rings if Jeffries didn’t drop that pass against the Saints IMO. Now in the 2nd half of the season in Jacksonville, he’s turned them not into a contender, but a winning team. They have been a winning team since they rebuilt and they did what winning teams do - find a way to win. To wrap this back around to the Bills, say they don’t put this away in the next few minutes. That blows up the whole takin care a bidness thing. The game is still theirs though. They will find a way to win because that’s what they’ve always done.
  23. I read through everything and of all things to quote, I chose this because it’s true. It sounds insane but it’s true. I didn’t see the game but this is probably the worst I’ve seen this forum have to eat crow after a comeback or a meltdown. Everybody here has seen enough games not to call them early but everybody here did. So it must have been really freaking bad. No judgement...I’ve done it lol!
