  1. I'm pretty sure Monta's pitch was nothing more than "dude, we'll pay you".
  2. But one that he'd likely believe.
  3. Yep, they were definitely pushing that Robin Hood series, and used Nitro to try to grab more viewers for it.
  4. Fuck you, that was amazing Dwight was a fool
  5. I hope to be kept abreast of any developments in this angle.
  6. On the whole indy draw thing, pretty much anytime you book a local guy who "made it", you're going to get a nice bump. We've booked Hurricane a few times around here, and it always turns out well. Same for some of the other local groups that book the Hardys. Lawler is going to draw in TN, where he may not draw as much elsewhere, and so on. Also, Nikita was spot on when he said that you get local guys as consistent draws, and the big gimmicks will usually draw a very strong crowd.
  7. RVD in ECW was Davey Richards before Davey Richards was Davey Richards. Just replace stiff strikes and headdrops with backflips and cartwheels. At least RVD had something resembling a personality, and knew how to engage his audience.
  8. I've always thought that when they have Raw Roulette, they should have a well-groomed heel end up in a hair vs hair match with a someone who has a shaved head. They haven't done that, have they? Toryumon/DragonGate did a "Loser has to grow their hair out" between two Arai and Yagi. Both had a shaved heads, the pay off was they both had to grow out their hair and the winner got to go back to being shaved. Too bad Genki Horiguchi wasn't in that
  9. I personally would have brought back Slick.
  10. When the board was down, there was a website that lasted about 2 days (then they pussied out) called exvegans.com that was designed to public ally shame vegans who went back to eating meat. Bryan was on it. Pretty damn hilarious. http://youtu.be/viUon8EY0Rs Also, I don't care how scraggly it looks, look at my avatar and tell me that isn't a GD MAN.
  11. I think the idea is the Punk comes across as "different" and "cool" compare to a Cena, Sheamus or Orton. I'm not getting into whether that is true or not, but I can definitely see the perception. People who were big fans in the Attitude era would probably love his shooty promos.
  12. Dallas about to acquire Dejuan Blair. I think this is a hell of a bargain signing. Paying him vet minimum, and will get get good production. Also, looks like Bucks and Pistons working out a deal for Brandon Knight and Brandon Jennings. Possibly taking place in Brandon, MS(it's not).
  13. I think he meant about the in-ring product. It wasn't as chaotic and dangerous as WWE and ECW were most of the time.
  14. So I was seeing on Twitter that Jeff Jarrett and Keiji Mutoh were having meetings about talent exchanges for TNA. A) I had no idea Jarrett still had clout in TNA, and 2) Who the fuck can Mutoh exchange since he's not president of AJPW anymore?
  15. For me, it's the feeling that you are wasting your time if you invest in a wrestler you like. No one is going to move into an elite spot unless the company has already decided they are going to. There are rare exceptions like Punk and Bryan, but that's because their work is phenomenal, and the company was unable to kill their heat. Some like Ziggler gets a "push" that consists of him losing every match. Also, as others have stated, nothing is different than it was 10 years ago. There is a major feeling with everything of "been there, done that". The booking is designed in a way that no o
  16. Sorry for the double post. Somehow, Berto looked better after the shoulder injury, but the fight pretty much showed he's not an elite level guy. Showed heart, but got stopped by a "lesser" fighter.
  17. I'm downloading that card right now Edit: Sweet blazing ballsacks!! Watch this fight NOW!!
  18. TNA shows are always fun. Borash will even tell you guys they'll come to town for Impact or a ppv in the future
  19. I was mostly just curious if Scola would be willing to take such a reduced role off the bench. But with that said, he'll still get 20 min a game.
  20. I know its only another month and half to two months away, but damn is the wait hard, especially now that I've seen a trailer. Wow, this looks incredibly non-intelligence insulting for something on Nick. I may have to go out of my way for this. Also, I've gone back and started going through Justice League again on Netflix. The "Maid of Honor" episodes from Season 2 is shockingly grown up in tone. More so than any other episode I can think of in the series.
  21. So Indiana is trying to get Scola from Phoenix. I'm not sure what I'd give up if I'm Indy, or where Scola even fits into the offense.
