    If Bortles ends up anywhere near this thing, I'll protest outside every show with God Hates Jags signs

    It sounds cool, but let's wait and see how much money this guy is willing to lose the first couple years. Everyone thinks it sounds great because the guys a billionaire, but we've heard this story before with Panda Energy, Sinclair, etc. Plus who knows if this is even true??

    I'm glad Owens will get a little time off to come back fresh. As great as his stuff with Elias has been, I'd really like to see him go to SD and work with AJ, Bryan, Joe, Miz etc. but who knows what the landscape will even look like eight months from now

    You know the scene with Kevin Pollack at City Hall in Wayne's World 2 where Wayne says "Cross the Ts and dot the... Lowercase J's.."? That's totally how I read your sentence "Wrestlers with enormous... Championship belts..."

    WWE2K19.

    Just started the career mode last night and it's been pretty awesome so far but I haven't had time to do much else. One thing: they took the ECW TV title and it's parts out of the game! Small nitpick though.

    I mean, I agree with you both. You're right, context completely matters. But she may be right too.. theyre not NOT a wrestling crowd. But on the other hand, more to your point, a modern wrestling crowd these days i think probably has just as much crossover with Comicon or a Marvel movie, and skews a little younger. Its got a little bit of that "nerd culture" appeal now. I'd say the rally crowds probably have more in common with old school crowds-- they're just marks of a different kind. Like I could totally see some of those folks throwing batteries and shit at like Don Kernodle 40 years ago. But there's no doubt in my mind that a lot of what makes our president so popular with certain folks is probably the same sentiment that made Steve Austin a star in the late 90s: "He's a straight shooter! Tells it like it is!" It's an interesting conversation for sure.

    My favorite year ever in wrestling. I've read that Lorne Michaels always says that people think the best SNL cast is whichever one was on while they were in high school, and I think the same might be true for wrestling and childhood. I mean, sure, I've seen plenty of incredible things in wrestling in the 21 years since, but there still isn't anything quite like seeimg everything you listed for the first time

    Apparently. I, as you know, celebrate the entire catalog.

    Shreddit is what they call /r/metal and it's almost as bad as the wrestling one. The hip thing now is to pretend Master of Puppets "wasn't that good." FOH..

    Now I'm a little embarrassed I said that here myself. I just felt like it exceeded my extremely low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised I enjoyed it. I think in context it was pretty good for what it was. It's like going to Burger King or something and being really excited they didn't fuck up your order. I never expected a steak house.

    I have a feeling I might be in the minority, but I actually thought HHH vs Taker was kinda fun (Though some of that chair stuff reeeeeallly dragged). It was just junk comfort food. I have basically the same opinion I had about the HHH/Sting match. Its the equivalent of eating a dish of cereal and watching the price is right on a snow day. Yeah, it sucks Taker didn't actually retire after Mania because the send off was so pitch-perfect, but whatever. It's a work anyway who gives a shit. Flair had the greatest send off ever and turned around and worked at TNA til he was 90 and bled every single night and worked in a pair of slacks. The only people who should outright hate this match are people who somehow idiotically thought they were getting something on par with their Mania matches 10 years later or whatever. Or also I guess people who were pissed about the length of Miz/Bryan too, but that's it.

    That's a really great match but for me personally, Nash's best has got to be the Bret match from Survivor Series. Ill give the NHB a rewatch this weekend though because honestly, I've only seen it one other time since it aired and that was like three or four years ago already, so you could be totally right

    Yeah same with me, I thought it was wack but then I came around on it when I thought about the casts of things like Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones getting them. It's no different, really.

    I'm actually pretty excited about it. I go out drinking Friday nights and don't usually get home til about 4 anyway, so this is gonna be kinda cool. Im gonna have a night cap, fix a big ass breakfast, and probably enjoy myself wayyyy more than the average sunday night PPV.
