    R.I.P. VADER

    RIP Vader. his biggest moments were always opposite of what i was watching but his presence was undeniable. the more i watch of Vader, the more i love it.

    Raw 6/11/01 @ Richmond, VA dark match: Chilly Willy vs Pat "Q-Sic" Cusick. i didn't know this ever happened. Chilly Willy gets a big crowd reaction and the pin after a bad looking Falcon Arrow. King of the Ring Qualifier: Kane vs Christian. total squash match by Kane until Albert runs in and hits the Baldo Bomb, allowing Christian to advance King of the Ring Qualifier: Perry Saturn (w/Terri) vs Steve Blackman (w/Trish). Saturn gets the surprising upset win. Steel Cage Match: Chris Benoit vs Kurt Angle Six Man Tag: Dudleyz vs Hollys. match is pretty mediocre, but it does deliver the first kiss between Spike Dudley and Molly Holly that they've been teasing all night. Since it happens in-ring, it gets a big pop from the crowd. very good match. Austin on commentary is a lot of fun. match features Kurt Angle missing a moonsault from the top of the cage as well as Benoit connecting with a headbutt from all the way up. Angle wins after a bit of Austin interference. Post match, Austin beats down Benoit with a steel chair. SmackDown! 6/14/01 @ Baltimore, MD Tag Team Titles: Edge & Christian vs Chris Benoit & Chris Jericho (c) excellent match that gets about 15 uninterrupted minutes. lots of tried-and-true heel tag staples (blind tag, isolating one opponent, etc.) Big pop when Jericho gets the hot tag. Jericho pins Edge after the lionsault. Post-match, Edge and Christian argue to the back. King of the Ring Qualifier: Big Show vs Raven. Show makes up for a week of jobbing by chokeslamming his way into the tournament. Hardcore Title: Test vs Rhyno (c) decent enough match. test has a prone Rhyno after elbow dropping him through a table. WCW logo on the tron. crowd pops. Shane comes out with Stacy Keibler, who distracts Rhyno for Test to Big Kick him and win the Hardcore 24/7 title. King of the Ring Qualifier: Crash Holly vs Tajiri this is Tajiri's in-ring WWF debut, and a damn fine one at that. Crowd eats up all of the big kicks and the Tarantula. Regal's facial expressions continue to impress. a smattering of ECW chants. Tajiri advances after the Buzzsaw Kick. the main event is Spike Dudley vs Steve Austin, and while a one sided ass whooping, it was a lot of fun and the crowd was completely into it. Jakked/Metal 6/16/01 in a tag match that is WCW levels of WTF, Haku & Ivory (still in RTC gear) face K-Kwik & Jacquelyn. Jackie powerbombs Ivory for the pin. also, a boss Jerry Lynn vs Taka Michinoku match happens that's worth checking out.

    DC Comics omnibus thread

    was never a fan of the Burnside costume/concept, so i am happy to see that go. the new costume isn't perfect (too much uncovered cranium) but i like the callback to Batgirl Year One. this will probably get me to pick up the series again.

    HeAT 6/3: Test pinned the Big Show, clean. either they're REALLY pushing Test, or they're creatively bankrupt on what to do with Big Show. no way should this have happened on Heat. Raw 6/4/01 @ Minneapolis, MN InterContinental Title: Kane (c) vs Christian w/Edge: Edge tries to interfere and gets a chokeslam for his effort. WCW's Hugh Morrus runs in, hits the No Laughing Matter Moonsault, and gets outta Dodge. Kane chokeslams Christian to retain. Mick Foley announces Austin vs Jericho for tonight. Vince balks, but Foley brings out Gov. Jesse Ventura to sponsor it. neat segment. King of the Ring Qualifier: Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy. 4 minutes of nonstop action. Matt goes for the Twist of Fate but Jeff reverses it into a backslide Chris Benoit makes the Big Show tap out. how long will the depush continue? King of the Ring Qualifier: Rhyno vs Tazz. 3 1/2 minutes. Rhyno wins with the GORE! decent match, but Heyman's commentary made it seem like a bigger deal than it otherwise would've. WWF World Title: Steve Austin (c) vs Chris Jericho good match. Austin is really firing on all cylinders lately. He even takes a top rope hurracanrana! typical overbooked finish: ref bump, Foley (the outside enforcer) in, Regal interferes, Foley accidentally hits Jericho with a chair, Stone Cold Stunner for the win. SmackDown! 6/7/01 @ Grand Forks, ND King of the Ring Qualifier: Kurt Angle vs Hardcore Holly. solid match and given some time, a bit over 6 minutes. Angle advances after the Olympic Slam. Light Heavyweight Title: Jerry Lynn (c) vs Jeff Hardy. good fast paced match. Jeff Hardy wins. questionable booking. JL has only been with the company a month and a half. he barely gets mentioned as is, taking his one accomplishment away will likely leave him without anything happening. King of the Ring Qualifier: Edge (w/Christian) vs Test. they're teasing dissention between E&C, with both men looking for singles success. solid match, Test has it fully in hand before Christian interferes, eating a Big Kick but allowing Edge to land the Implant DDT to move on in the tournament. Tag Team Titles: Chris Benoit & Chris Jericho (c) vs Steve Austin & Vince McMahon but first, Jericho & Benoit have to beat the Acolytes in a non-title match. which they do, with a Lionsault to Faarooq. and then, they must face Big Show & Rhyno. again they do, but DQ when Rhyno smashes Jericho with a weapon. this match was OK. Austin delivered a top rope superplex. Jericho eats a Stunner, but Benoit rolls Austin up (holding the tights) to retain.
  6. the only offensive thing Colby said IMO is that Chicago-style deep dish pizza sucks. the whole "local sports team sucks" thing is cheap heat 101 and he found that the pro-Trump supporting thing seems to be working, so whatever.
  7. as far as Claudia-Carla, i guess it was more obvious on tv. live it definitely seemed like Carla had rds 1 and 3, but oh well.
  8. that Punk fight was an absolute embarrassment. his striking was worse than rudimentary, his takedowns were horrendous, and whatever jiu jitsu he learned didn't show. and Mike Jackson, while clearly superior, showed exactly nothing. chalk that up as a loss on every level.
  9. wow, definitely seems like a robbery for Esparza. couldn't hear a word Claudia said over all the boos
  10. i gave it to Benavidez from the stands. Pettis seemed to land the bigger shots but Benavidez landed more and controlled better. tough call either way. that knee to Rashad tho. damn!
  11. a bit out of practice on this, but here we go: EVENT #47 POINT TOTAL: 0 UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero II (6/9/2018) - Chicago, IL (United Center)Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero - Whittaker, TKO, R4 Rafael dos Anjos vs. Colby Covington - dos Anjos, TKO, R3Holly Holm vs. Megan Anderson - Holm, DECAndrei Arlovski vs. Tai Tuivasa - Arlovski, DECPhil Brooks vs. Mike Jackson - CM Punk, Sub, R2Alistair Overeem vs. Curtis Blaydes - Blaydes, TKO, R2Cláudia Gadelha vs. Carla Esparza - Gadelha, DECRicardo Lamas vs. Mirsad Bektić - Lamas, DECRashad Coulter vs. Chris de la Rocha - Coulter, TKO, R1Rashad Evans vs. Anthony Smith - Smith, TKO, R2Joseph Benavidez vs. Sergio Pettis - Benavidez, DECClay Guida vs. Charles Oliveira - Oliveira, Sub, R3Mike Santiago vs. Dan Ige - Ige, TKO, R1

    so, seeing Dibiase, Slaughter, and Rude on that list got me thinking. best 80s WWF wrestler that hasn't had a career dvd? edit: Greg Valentine is the dvd set that i'd be most interested in. it would have to include NWA of course. Jimmy Snuka is the name i'm most surprised hasn't had one yet. ditto Cowboy Bob Orton.
