  1. I can't wait for the cinematic match where someone is thrown to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Of course, they'll be off tv for less than 24 hrs,. then appear on Raw the next night with a small bandage on their forehead to sell the 6,000 foot drop. Realism!
  2. Meltzer says that AEW still has big plans for Jungle Boy, but is holding off pulling the trigger until crowds return. That seems to be the AEW mentality in general: holding pattern in the hopes that they can resume shows with crowds soon. I dunno. Pushing a 45-year-old Jungle Boy doesn't seem that exciting to me.
  3. So many botches. I’m dying every time I watch this. Vince would have a stroke if this was on his show. They botch a spot pretty much every time they touch the briefcase. I do wonder if Sherri was supposed to clock Mongo, or if he was going to no-sell the shot anyway.
  4. Got a question. I was browsing the Nintendo eshop for old-school Nintendo games and I noticed that a lot of classic Nintendo exclusives appear to be available on the Wii U eshop, but not the Switch's. I'm talking about the Rare Donkey Kong Country trilogy, a lot of the older Metroid games (Metroid, Super, the DS games), Sin an Punishment, Super Mario 64 (?!) as well as the NES and SNES Super Mario titles, and most of the older Legend of Zelda games, including Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Have these seriously not been ported to the Switch eShop or am I missing something? Is there
  5. Not gonna lie. I'm kinda disappointed the snowman broke kayfabe and didn't wear his mask.
  6. Sony's said contradictory things about backwards compatibility. Based on their latest cryptic rumblings, it seems like most/all PS4 games should work on the PS5, but a few people I've talked to thing Sony will whitelist games so that only games Sony's staff has had time to test will work on PS5. Last thing I remember them specifically promising was that the 100 most popular PS4 titles will be backwards compatible at launch. They inferred the number would be much higher than that, didn't specifically say that. My physical Sony library is heavy on imports and indie games from Limite
  7. Giving some thought to watching Darwin's Game? Opinions?
  8. That makes more sense. Looking at her Wikipedia entry, it looks like she's gotten a decent bit of work the past few years, albeit not in shows that were likely to make her a bigger star or land her a steady paycheck. She's apparently landing some smaller supporting roles in films and was cast in a couple shows on channels I don't follow (Starz, History Channel specifically).
  9. This seems odd to me. Or unexpected, at least. I guess her tv/film career hasn't taken off?
  10. What's the sudden objection to Dream about? From a couple of the comments above. I'm assuming that he was mentioned in the sleaze thread that was pinned a month or so back, but I skipped that thread entirely.
  11. I’m kinda impressed that they managed to make a game that looks even less entertaining than 2k20.
  12. At this point, I feel like buying a new console any time soon is a little silly. Game developers are kinda talking in hushed tones about how release dates are going to be affected at least through the end of 2021 and beyond. I don't have a lot of confidence that the game library for the PS5 or Xbox Series X after 12 or 24 months is going to stack up to the PS4 or Xbox One libraries after the same amount of time on the market. There may still be a game or sale that gets me to buy a next gen console soon after launch, but at this point, I feel like it would tale a lot. That said, it was
  13. So I guess Vince just saw Romy and Michele's High School Reunion?
  14. Eh, Eccleston returning to Dr. Who isn't even going to make the top 20 signs of the apocalypse in 2020. Does Big Finish pay that well or is Eccleston wanting to buy a boat while his movie projects are in limbo? The little I've read about him over the years made it sound like he wanted nothing to do with Dr. Who.
  15. I guess I''m the only person who hoped the Dominic beatdown was Seth's face turn. Dom hasn't shown me anything yet that makes me want to watch. Imo, he lacks a good look and the "it" factor his dad has. Can't comment on his ringwork. yet. First full show I've watched since Feb or early March. Thought it was kinda poor despite a few good segments. Shane's fight club doesn't do it for me and it seems like the sort of thing Vince will lose interest in quickly. RETRIBUTION is already a channel changer. Not sure what to make of the ninjas. I guess I missed a Natayla heel turn that
  16. Lol, like there's going to be a 2021.... It's probably just as well that I'm not too excited by the Triple A release schedule for the rest of the year. There are a number of games I'll pick up, but I'm not too excited for AC: Valhalla, Avengers, Cyberpunk, etc. There's a good chance I don't pick Avengers or Cyberpunk until next year or later. I'm sure there will be a lot of good games, but I don't see a lot on the release schedule that's a week one must-buy. I'm probably most excite for... uh.... Spelunky 2? I laugh when I see 2021 release dates. You might as well promise
  17. Not really news, per se, but DC Universe laid off almost all of it's staff yesterday. Forbes' article said the original shows are expected to continue, but will find a new home, presumably HBO Max. Not at all surprising. Stargirl was already announced as jumping to the CW. Harley Quinn and Doom Patrol were co-streamed on Max. Titans and the new season of Young Justice was already rumored to be heading that way. On another note, is Titans worth watching? I never subscribed to DC Universe, so I've never seen it. Thought I saw it on Netflix the other day and thought I might
  18. Time for another reboot! And a new crisis! DC's mot popular heroes united to.... uh..... breach the fourth wall to help laid off staffers polish resumes and take meeting with corporate recruiters. At this point, it really does feel like it's only a matter of time until DC either moves to a digital-only model or simply shuts down all together and Warner just retains the rights to characters for licensing purposes. Probably the latter
  19. It really is the apocalypse when Fozzy is one of the best concerts of the summer.
  20. To me, Retribution seems more like a z-grade retread of SAni†Y than Nexus. I guess it depends who's under the masks. They do look kinda tiny. The WWE's statement (before the debuted) about the angle not being a political statement makes me think they'll ham-fistedly try to inject some sort of pseudo-BLM relevance into the angle and enrage nearly everyone. I'm already kinda bored by them, to be honest. Not really the sort of thing that's going to get me to watch a crowdless show. It is amusing that apparently WWE only employs security at arena shows with crowds. Good to know.
  21. This week in WCW, Mortis goes towards the light:
  22. Here's the video. Sony started late. The actual presentation doesn't start until the 10:00 mark with Crash Bandicoot footage. (lol, this version edits out most of the dead air edited. I think the actual livestream started at 4:40 EST instead of 4:00). Basically, Hitman VR, the new Crash game and a number of indie games. Last ten minutes or so are an extended look at Godfall. Several games were just announced for PS5. At least one of the indie games apparently will be released for PS4 and PS5. A couple release dates announced. Spelunky 2 and one or two others. The
