  1. Or not. Schedule is updated. There is a marathon of Westworld S3 on HBO2 starting at 1230 EST on Sunday and lasting until the debut of the premier on HBO.
  2. I think it depends on what is being discussed. I think nearly everyone here believes similarly, but the odd flame war over certain topics proves we are hardly monolithic. But we don't have to be as long as we are respectful.
  3. Processing the events of today will be hard enough as it is. Reflect on your own. Resist the urge to vent something stupid. Do not engage in debate if it is not earnest and civilized. If you want to talk, feel free to shoot me a PM but if you want me to give you my opinion, I will. Be warned. If you offend easily, discuss the issue with those of a like mind. That way you won't be disappointed by what you hear.
  4. Every day should be Piledriver Day, but I digress. Let us celebrate the most dreaded of finishers!
  5. I am trying to go in cold so that I will mark extensively. I have high expectations for Fenix vs. Andrade. Shafir vs. Storm was chock full of hardway potatoes and deadlift suplexes. I was happy with the outcome but it could have been a little more polished. If Marina and Toni aren't in concussion protocol right now, they oughta be. They both suffered for my amusement. And I got my ladies mixed up. It was Savanna Stone who had the great Germans in that CWFH match. How Delilah Doom was able to make the tag after getting smershed I have no idea. She should've been dead. I am not sure why, but there is something that bothers me about a woman working babyface, having colorful ring attire, and having a ring name like Delilah Doom. That is a name for a heel, right? Savanna Stone looked more like a Delilah Doom that Delilah Doom did.
  6. As much as I would like to vote for MYLO since she is from Virginia and Delilah Doom's German Suplexes, I think I have to go with Black vs. PENTA. I am a mark for PENTA dropping people on their heads from altitude and Black's Ernesto Hoost-esque kickboxing transitions to offense. Mads and Jacob Fatu was indeed an excellent garbage match consisting of big men beating the living dogshit out of each other and one guy was nearly kayfabe set on fire.
  7. ClanDestine came out in the 90's. Is it really that deep of a cut? The U-Foes showing up on an episode of Disney's The Avengers was a deeper cut. They are a decade older than ClanDestine and only have a handful of appearances in the comics. ClanDestine had their own limited run.
  8. Milan Ray (The Wonder Years, Modern Love) has been added to the cast of Blade along with Delroy Lindo. There is no character information, but overanalyzing geeks assume that Ray will play Fallon Grey, the estranged daughter of Eric Brooks / Blade. There is currently no release date for Blade. Stacy Osei-Kuffour (HBO's Watchmen mini-series) will write the script and Bassam Tariq (Mogul Mowgli) will direct.
  9. Barbarian Written and directed by Zach Cregger. Starring Georgina Campbell, Bill Skarsgård, Justin Long, Matthew Patrick Davis, Richard Brake, Kurt Braunohler and Jaymes Butler. In theaters on August 31st!
  10. So, Abandoned is Certified Rotten (19% on the Freshmeter), but has an RT audience rating of 75% which means it's probably really good.
  11. I am glad that they said that ZSJ's opponent would be handpicked by Bryant so no fucking Johnny Mundo / Impact / Elite.
  12. I also messed something up. The only way to get salmon roe (other than building a kitchen for one of your holds and raiding the supplies) is to catch a salmon that is swimming upstream. There are a couple of places where you can see salmon swimming up the falls. I usually get my salmon roe at the falls near Riverwood along the river near Anais's Cabin. It is hard to catch a salmon while it is jumping, but it is doable.
  13. I love how Jay White annunciates the word "catalyst" in his promos as if he expects everyone in the crowd to know what a catalyst does. JAY WHITE, THE CATTLE LIST OF PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING~!
  14. I am actually praying for Cole to hit the Boom on the guy that Okada hits with the Rainmaker and steal the win. My preferred victim is Jay White. Twitter will be consumed by smark rage. Sonny Kiss as a Baddie is now the thing I need to happen that I did not know that I wanted to happen.
  15. You obviously only watch prime time wrestling. Marina's most bestest dangerous pump-handle suplex run in Championship Wrestling from Atlanta was a glorious thing to behold. She is not someone I'd put an AEW title on, but she serves a role as eternal challenger / gateway worker.
  16. SOMETHING~! SOMETHING~! YAAAAA~!! YAAAAHHHH~!! What he said. The four-way is a compromise and stinks of politics, but it gives the fans the appearances they expect to see on a PPV card like Forbidden Door. Cole will be the sacrificial lamb so that Hangman, White, and Okada can remain strong. Cole can afford the job since he was already booked strong in the Owen Hart tournament and has a vanity title to carry around. He'll be an AEW World Championship contender regardless of what happens in this match.
  17. I hate HBOs regular television schedule. Someone thought it was a good idea to run a marathon of The Time Traveler's Wife before the debut of Westworld. If you want to get caught up on last season, you're going to have to binge it on HBO Max.... which was probably the plan all along.
  18. The official line is "no" but it could be a conspiracy, right?
  19. I support AEW poaching TJP for the weekend and putting him in the ring against ZSJ in a battle of which man is having the best year so far. Both guys are pretty much the supporting cast aces of their respective federations right now. TJP is quietly carrying the MLW upper card on his shoulders and dragging epics out of Davey Richards and all of the visiting technicos from AAA and he doesn't even hold a belt. TJP can also eat the loss and still return triumphant to MLW and kill Myron Reed for the Middleweight title at some point in the future. Plus how can you miss with the booking of workers who both refer to themselves by their initials? ZSJ VS TJP~!
  20. Mercy does indeed defeat an enemy. Mercy is stronger than ruthlessness. In order to spare a life, one must be in a position to take it away and then choose not to.
  21. What a great go home show! I miss the days of the WCW A and B shows that fed into the WCW vs New Japan Supershow where just about anything could happen and usually did. This episode of Dynamite felt really big! The only thing missing from the lead-up to Forbidden Door was something like House of Torture coming to America and publicly assassinating Larry Lazard, Terry Yaki, & Jay Lucas on AEW Dark. Kinda like when Mr. Saito and Kensuke Sasaki murdered the Southern Posse on live television during an episode of WCW Worldwide right before Starrcade '95. Lots and lots of great wrestling last night and Storm vs. Shafir was the violent bag of potatoes that I expected it to be. Even Nyla's cheating spots were super stiff. OKADA~! TANAHASHI~! SUZUKI~! HOLY FUCK~! I am bummed that Danielson is not clear to wrestle a classic against ZSJ. I wish they would just pull the trigger and announce Claudio's involvement or have ZSJ work Naito since Naito is conspicuously not working the PPV. Milwaukee is a hot wrestling city. Richmond and the rest of the cities in Horseman Country need to step the fuck up and represent. We should be ashamed of ourselves.
  22. Hey, the creepy trailer attached to Top Gun: Maverick found its way to the YouTubes!
  23. I am dumb. If Feige sticks to the comics, Nakia cannot become the new Black Panther as she eventually betrays the throne and becomes Malice / The Once Beloved One and she would make for excellent final boss materiel in BP3 should Marvel powers-that-be decide to put the mask on shitty Letitia Wright / Shuri. I think it would be interesting if Lupita Nyong'o played another heavy. I am hoping that they go with Nekra if there ever is a BP3. Just Nekra, thanks. We will try our best to forget that her known associates, The Mandrill, The racist Grim Reaper, and ridiculous voodoo villain, The Black Talon, ever existed.
  24. There was a lot of stuff to like and some stuff not to like in the finale. Writing was off the chain. I love how Deborah Chow took the dumbest dialogue sequence in the franchise aka Ben's "certain point of view" lie about Vader killing Luke's father and made it a self-fulfilling prophesy with Vader's final soliloquy. "You didn't kill Anakin Skywalker. I did." And you know that Ben has finally given up on trying to save Anakin's soul because he calls him "Darth." FUCK, YEAH~!!! Vader and Ben's saber fight sooooo sets up the ill-fated duel on the Death Star. "I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner. Now I am the master." "Only a master of evil, Darth." Again, FUCK YEAH~! Reva's redemption was garbage. She was perfectly willing to put hot needles in Leia's eyes, but somehow she can't bring herself to kill Luke? I call bullshit. Reva is far more interesting as a villain / anti-hero than she is a redeemed Sith do-gooder. It is annoying that this series with so much to offer the SW canon ultimately is little more than a vehicle to launch Reva into her own series. Fucking Disney and their marketing. Bravo, Deborah Chow, you love the materiel and it showed. She and Jon Favreau seem to be the only SW directors that "get it." If she is not doing full length SW movies sometime soon, it will be a lost opportunity.
