  1. 83 weeks has improved greatly due to Eric actually taking notes and doing research. His first few shows were full of I don't recalls and mistruths that were on the fly. Like the fact that Bret Hart's book was ghost written... which it was not. He still bitches about Meltzer way too much but I enjoy it. Ultimately Bruce is nearing the end because they're going to run out of material. Jim Ross has been great so far because he has a great memory and doesn't tell the story from just one side.
  2. Honestly, the most interesting story with the Von Erichs has always been Kevin. Sole survivor living in Hawaii with the love of his life and still giving his sons the blessing to be wrestlers even after all he's been through. It's the least expected story of all time.
  3. I genuinely think that Torrie Wilson is challenging Koko B. Ware and the Godfather for worst inductee ever.
  4. At this point they haven't named their deceased candidate... so it could be Jim Neidhart. But it could be Vader or Bam Bam Bigelow as well. I'm more interested in seeing if they do a Heritage Class this year. My candidates would be Sam Muchnick, Paul Boesch, Dick the Bruiser, Don Leo Jonathan, El Solitario, Jumbo Tsuruta, Jack Claybourne and Vivian Vachon.
  5. It's a great day to be a Broncos fan... Champ was a no brainer and Mr. Bowlen has been one of the best owner in sports since he bought the team. For a team that's gone to 8 Super Bowls there has been a lack of representation that's almost criminal.
  6. 2002 remains as one of my favorite Rumbles because the bulk of it was Austin, Angle, Hennig and Triple H just beating the piss out of each other.
  7. Other than the repetitiveness of New England... what's the worst case scenario possible? Minnesota? Pittsburgh? Cincinnati?
  8. No, old Olbermann joke... but add Goldberg and it's the wrestling equivalent of the Shady Pines nursing home...
  9. So the average age of the first four signees to AEW is 206...
  10. Okay, so... where are they going to get talent? Jericho is good for them... but most people wouldn't be able to pick the Bucks and Omega out of a police line up. So Joey Janela and Joey Ryan? I'm honestly confused because the WWE has a huge amount of talent under wraps and every one else has signed a multi-year deal some where else. Where are the horses coming from?
  11. My thought is that one of the biggest stars of all time is pretty much obscured but Paul Roma and Bagwell are plain as day.
  12. I'd imagine that the tier refers to classic WWF announcers because historically and ability wise it doesn't make sense.
  13. In my mind the best way to put Gene Okerlund in perspective is this. We have constant discussions about who the best play-by-play guy is whether it's Jim Ross, Gordon Solie, Lance Russell, Joey Styles or a motivated Tony Schiavone. You have discussions about the best color commentator is: Heenan, Ventura, Dave Brown or Heyman. There is no argument about who the best interviewer in the history of professional wrestling is. Gene Okerlund. RIP to the best.
  14. I'm so happy that Vance Joseph is gone. But the blame isn't his alone... John Elway should get some more than he does for not drafting particularly well until the last draft.
  15. Please let it be Reno... as a Broncos fan it would be delicious for the evil empire to play in front of dozens of people in a small city.
  16. So, Screaming A. Smith said that the key to the Chiefs and Chargers game was the matchup between Hunter Henry and Derrick Johnson. Henry has been out for the year and Johnson no longer plays for the Chiefs... Dude is literaly a line from a Shakespeare play... "Full of sound and fury yet signifying nothing."
  17. Peterman to the Racialslurs would be delicious, especially as Kaepernick would look bad if he took the job for a team that's name is insensitive by nature.
  18. To be fair though, AJ is wearing his own merch...
  19. Peterman should be blackballed because if someone brings him in the NFL might as well just give Kaepernick his settlement.
  20. Yeah, the Dunne being locked in was completely stupid. Went nowhere. Velveteen Dream has charisma but not much else. He sells like he's having an asthma attack and that figure four on the outside was a great idea but it was executed like The Rock doing a sharpshooter. The women's match was good except for the schmozz and Black vs. Gargano was very good, but this was in my mind the most mediocre Takeover ever. No buzz coming out of it and no continuation or beginning of storylines. Hopefully they clear the deck and make way for some of the talent, because this card was just there.
  21. So apparently being called soft by John Elway got stuck in Von Miller's proverbial craw..
  22. The nominating committee seems to love just having one "hard rock/heavy metal" act at a time, so I'd blame Def Leppard more than anything. I can get that Radiohead isn't your thing, but they have sold a bunch of albums and have been a high grossing touring band for over 20 years. I can't stand Aerosmith, but I understand why they're in there. Hopefully Judas Priest and Iron Maiden can get in sooner rather than later, but as Alice Cooper said it's easier to get elected than nominated. As for this class, I'd go with Radiohead, RATM, Prine (not very commercial, but easily on the level of Tom Waits and Laura Nyro ability wise), Devo and Janet Jackson.
  23. After watching a Hidden Gem, I think I have the answer... Rene Goulet.
