  1. How come nobody gave love for the classics - monkey flip and bulldog? Whenever I bust out a game with create-a-wrestler, I always wind up trying to give one wrestler nothing but animal-named moves. They usually wind up with a horrifically inconsistent moveset as a result, but it's easier to pull of than the "only uses moves named after geographic locations" gimmick.
  2. You can't pay for locker rooms in hot dogs and handshakes.
  3. My first reading was some sort of Logan's Run age-based cancellation. I'll be honest, if every skeezy person in wrestling is cancelled, we'll probably be down to an hour a week total.
  4. Isn't that the crash that was inches away from knocking out the power to the arena?
  5. I am amazed that this board has an entire thread devoted to WCW C-show memories, but so many people don't see the value in Shawn Spears. They may have tried to push him too high up the card out of the gate, but I think he's one of the MVPs of Dark. I'm also invested in the Peter Avalon/Brandon Cutler "Worst of AEW" feud.
  6. Even if you don't count TNA or WWA, Jarrett won the WCW World Title 4 times.
  7. Curt Hennig only start wrestling a year after Hogan, didn't he? He was good-looking, had charisma, wasn't Southern...
  8. I think there was a similar (lack of) care when one of the Villanos suffered a neck injury in a tag match with Raven and Kanyon. Raven was pretty much the only one caring for the guy IIRC.
  9. Okay, I'm not sure I can parse the grammar in all of this, but I have to pull up short here. Are you saying that anyone who wrestles for a World Title at Mania is a first-ballot Hall of Famer? Guys like Alberto del Rio? The Miz? JBL? Jack Swagger? What about guys like Slaughter or Sid? I'm not arguing for or against Harper's relative merits, but the idea that wrestling for the world title at Mania has this much weight behind it just blows my mind.
  10. I'm confused by the argument that AEW shouldn't hire someone because Vince didn't want him enough to keep him. By that logic, they couldn't hire anyone, because anyone who qualified would be under contract. I understand the concern of AEW turning into "WWE cast-off land". That's part of what did TNA in, both in the short term and the long. But I think AEW is in a much better place, both creatively and popularity-wise, than TNA ever was. Should they hire everyone who gets released? No. Should they hire anyone right this minute, when everything is in flux? Maybe not. But I would argue "Guy who was working extended programme with Daniel Bryan this week" is no worse than "Guy who was being cuckolded by Bobby Lashley", "Guys who couldn't get on TV", or even "Guys who haven't been on TV since February."
  11. Sign both Gulak and Ryder. Give them a programme together. Watch the $$$ roll in.
  12. Two posts earlier: There you go. I guess the argument could be that Hardy is an unproven property at this stage in the game? Not every match has to be based around a feud, even on PPV. I'd say that mindset is an overall negative, since it really reduces the options and results in stale match-ups as people wrestle the same match week after week. I also don't see why the MITB being pretaped means no cash in tonight. I could see the MITB going on last, which obviously would preclude a cash-in, but being pretaped doesn't mean anything in and of itself.
  13. "Lethal Lothario" should've been a Jay Lethal/Jose Lothario pairing. There's no other excuse for that phrase.
  14. I just want to apologize to everyone I let down. My friends, my family, and especially the fans.
  15. Is Jinder Mahal still with the company? I haven't seen him mentioned in a dog's age. Not that I'm complaining.
