    OCTOBER 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I would be utterly shocked that a person who grew up in Ric Flair's household was racist. You can't see it, but I definitely have my shocked face on right now.

    Blake Bortles loses a Loser Leaves Town match to Kenny Omega, comes back under a mask as Jake Jortles.

    Ryan Sessegnon vs Cody in a "Future Legends" match? Cody's about to win when, wait a minute, that's Clint Dempsey's music! Clint Dempsey has come back to Fulham! What's he doing here? We thought that he retired! (Then Dempsey hits Cody with a Diamond Cutter, obvs.) No, wait, instead of a "Future Legends match," it will be in a "Craven Cottage match!" Fulham plays at the stadium with the best "also sounds like it could be a special match type" name.

    I haven't really watched much new WoS, but yeah, I should have clarified that I'm talking about '70s WoS, which I actually think is my favorite thing about wrestling aside from '70s and '80s Portland and '80s NWA. And '97 Bret Hart.

    I think that WoS is the loveliest, most aesthetically pleasing form of wrestling. The best workers of that style know how to make rolling through a counter to an armbar look like magic.

    2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    I'm pretty much glued to Konami's Pixel Puzzle Collection. The puzzles aren't hard, but the music, the deep dives into Konami history, and the satisfaction of autofilling the rest of a line with X-marks when you properly color in the right squares is just. So. GOOOOOOD.

    Jeremy Parrish was absolutely damned right when he ranked Donkey Kong Jungle Beat the second-best DK game ever. It almost makes up for him claiming that the decent-but-not-spectacular NSMBU is the best Mario platformer ever instead of the, true, objective, scientifically-proven, real winner, which of course is Super Mario Bros. 3 (Odyssey and 64 are also acceptable answers because science is a tricky bitch).

    I'm sort of in a holding pattern until Red Dead Redemption 2 comes out, playing FIFA and finally finishing Kiwami and Picross S2, but I did just get Overcooked! Looking forward to trying that with my wife.

    Yeah, I'm thinking more like the loser had to actually leave the promotion for another one for at least some amount of time. This match holds up exceptionally well years later even after the concept of a hardcore match in the U.S. has been taken far beyond what they did in this match. I'm actually okay with Michaels popping up after the powerbomb because he was trying to embody that superhero face that just doesn't sell sometimes in the WWF/E mold. I don't think I've seen a Flair/Hennig match that I really enjoyed very much, which is not to say that I necessarily think your pick is crazy. Much like Hennig and Michaels, I always expected more from their matches than I ended up getting. I think Bret Hart is Hennig's best non-Portland opponent by miles. This was pretty good.

    So, here's a weird question for thought: If you were going to put together a playlist of the best matches including someone who was clearly about to leave the territory or company and would be putting over their opponent on their way out, what would that playlist include? And is the Jeff Jarrett/Chyna Good Housekeeping Match a) a good match in general and b) good enough to make your playlist? I haven't seen it in years, but I thought the last time that I saw it that it was a fantastic match in the context of the feud and the characters.

    Raw is Save Our Sonics - 10/1/2018

    Yeah. Maybe not talk about Chris Cornell because that would have bordered on bad taste considering that he pretty recently took his own life, but saying that as soon as Dave Grohl could, he left Nirvana and Seattle because they both sucked would have been great! (Well, not "great," fuck that, Seattle is the best, but it would have gotten great heat. "What do the Sonics, Marshawn Lynch, and Dave Grohl all have in common? They got out of Seattle as quickly as possible.")

    Raw is Save Our Sonics - 10/1/2018

    I had to pop in here because even though I don't follow the shows anymore, I had family and friends attend it. They actually sent me phone-cam video of the Elias promo and the booing, and it's a) insanely loud and b) pretty much standard if you make a dig at our sports teams here. Seattle sports fans are a sensitive bunch. The Key Arena knockdown is happening precisely because the NHL wants a team here so badly. They re-opened the expansion application process just for Jerry Bruckheimer and Jeremy Bonderman and the Seattle area specifically, so that's happening. The NBA coming back, I don't know. They don't seem in a hurry to expand (even though they OWE US, those fucks). But yeah, the Sonics are very much still a part of the Seattle cultural fabric, even with all these transplants coming up here and bringing their team gear. I do think that it's funny that the last two events before the Key Arena is knocked down and re-built are: a) a Monday Night Raw where Elias shits on the city losing the Sonics and b) a Kings-Warriors NBA pre-season game. That's the type of poetry that is rare in real life. @hammerva: We LOVE Kevin Durant, so that would have gotten a pop. He still reps Sonics gear and talks about how much he loves the city. He could have pulled the Jim McIlvane jab or talked about how we never appreciated Robert Swift or about how we drove both Shawn Kemp and Vin Baker to drink because our weather is SOOOOOO depressing. Or talk about passing on the one-yard-line, like someone else mentioned, but then the crowd would have been as dangerous to him as a grandma with a knife is to Ole Anderson.

    Sounds like they won't even finish Clem's story, which is just AWFUL.

    Telltale dying and TWAU 2 getting canceled is the worst fucking video game news that I've heard in a long time. TWAU was this amazing game about marginalized communities and policing and it deserves all the sequels. SHIT.
