    The middle of a forest somewhere. It's cold and rainy and depressing. Don't move here, trust me.

  1. The easiest heat you can garner in Seattle. Second easiest is saying something about how dumb it is to throw the ball when you're on the one-yard-line and you have an elite running back.
  2. It's never a good day when the Sonics lose. Also, it's never a good day when the Sonics can't lose because they don't exist. Basically, life is misery.
  3. The Apter mags made Yoshi fucking Kwan look like a bloodletting killer, man. They were these incredible hype machines for me as a kid.
  4. I watched WWF as a kid, but my southern grandma was into JCP/WCW and had cable, so I watched that with her. I loved both of them, so there was no issue there for me. They were different, but I enjoyed the difference, I think. I was more into thinking about all the dream matchups between the wrestlers that I liked in both companies (which was exacerbated by my discovery of PWI and their consistent "dream match" articles). To follow up on what @cwoy2jand @Shanesaid about the Apter mags, I am in that boat as well. I didn't see Lawler wrestle until his WWF run and didn't see him wrestle in Memphis until the Andy Kaufman Comedy Central doc, but I knew all about him from PWI. Same with Bill Dundee. If you had asked me as a kid who Lawler's greatest rivals were, I would have told you they were Bret Hart and Bill Dundee even though I had never seen any Memphis.
  5. I still think this company could have had their own little version of the All Japan women of the '80s (in the sense of drawing young women and girls to the product) based around Charlotte/Becky/Sasha/Bayley and other key pieces like Asuka. To me, that is the biggest missed opportunity of NXT.
  6. Tom was competent enough to overthrow his wife and align with her father. Hunter is definitely not Tom. Though the idea of Hunter having his own "Greg" is great and they should have had a wrestler fill that role when they were doing all that Authority stuff.
  7. Trips being Kendall Roy to Vince's Logan Roy is almost as compelling as Succession is.
  8. This would be a better angle than literally any angle in pro wrestling in years.
  9. Most of what USA absorbed is morning/afternoon sports now that NBC/Comcast doesn't have NHL rights. The PL, the Tour de France/Vuelta de Espana, and various tennis tournaments are not going to really go into those primetime hours (or will be heavily edited on cable into one- or two-hour packages while the whole event will be available via Peacock, like they do with the Tour de France). WWE really lucked out with NBC's strategy there because I was sure that they'd try to retain NHL rights and that they'd put those games on USA and pre-empt RAW a whole lot, but nope. (Then again, NBC is willing to use CNBC for sporting events when necessary, so it's possible that RAW would have been moved to CNBC on some nights as a worst-case scenario.)
  10. I would love to hear a Walton/Dusty commentary team. Does Walton no-sell Dusty's crazy or lean into it in an understated way? Now I'm disappointed that it will never happen.
  11. It's a very "American commentator" thing. One of the things that I like about European football is that sometimes, the commentators chill the fuck out and let things happen without blathering on at an all-too-high volume about nonsense. To overlay that onto pro wrestling, it's why I really enjoy Kent Walton as a PBP man.
  12. Her gimmick did suck, but in the ring, she's easy to root for. She's a natural face. Lots of in-ring charisma. Nese is mechanically quite good. That's it.
  13. Ember Moon has physical charisma that Tony Nese wishes he had, IMO.
