  1. Of course Bronn also eyeballed that flaming arrow to hit the Wildfire boat at night time. Poor poor Edmure couldn't hit a moving canoe in broad daylight.
  2. This was a really great show. My job has me up very early in the morning so I can't stay up for shows like Raw and SmackDown. Having tomorrow off and staying up to watch tonight really paid off. My take on the head drop is that Cena really doesn't know Nakamuras moveset. I think he didn't rotate over enough because he assumed he was taking a suplex. Oops. However, getting up after that is very manly and worthy of a hoot or two.
  3. Bischoff's one liner about the corvette slayed me.
  4. The Leftovers is fucking bonkers. Love it. The actress that plays Nora is top notch.
  5. One has to wonder if the lack of faith in WWE booking made people back off of buying that SummerSlam. It was impossible to imagine them putting Bryan over Cena. At least that why *I* didn't buy the show.
  6. I had it in mind to rewatch the LT/Bigelow match for the last week or so. Just got done watching it and you're right. It's a damn miracle on par with the Stephanie/Trish match from 01. LT sticks with what you might expect from a football guy. Whatever he does, he starts in a full to semi 3 point stance. Bigelow accents this by taking those Misawa elbows like a real man and bumping like he got hit by a train. Nit picks go to the heat segment as I think Bammer should of stuck with the Boston Crab idea as that leg move was kind of weak. As was the moonsault. LT sold the shit out of the finish (or maybe he didn't have to sell) and more than earned his money and respect. It's basically the worst Wrestlemania. The only other thing I remember about the show was Kid killing Jarrett with a spin kick. I don't really remember much about this era. So it begs the question for a rebooking. What else do you do?
  7. If push comes to shove... they can always whoopee up a back up plan angle where Bryan trades Orton or something. But in exchange for the cruiser weights going non-exclusive. As a bonus it's a narrative sub-plot in the growing rivalry between the brands.
  8. Corbin just cut a shitty promo and 1 GUY clapped!
  9. Bonkers is the right fucking word. Good times this show is. I was iffy at first but I'm now really glad I hung in there for the sweet pay off.
  10. Random High Thoughts with your Host… Brandon Bones. I would like The Outcasts to keep challenging dudes every week until they do something fucked up and go serious. In an age where titles fail to have much prestige. Would it be too much to ask that MAYBE Kalisto/Neville be the Main Event? It was the ONLY title match on the fucking show. If anything 2006 ROH taught me its that there is nothing wrong with having The Briscoes, Nigel, and Bryan rotating in and out of the Main Event. That brand of promoting would do nothing but good for Kalisto and Neville on a perception level. Natty has every reason to bitch about her placement in the pecking order when its more than satisfactory just being included. She made Charlotte look really good. Give her more next time. Get well Nikki. I'm down with The Golden Truth. I'm going to go massage MY groin. These two statements are entirely unrelated. Ok, I'm back. Post.
  11. Honma is a BEAST even as an underdog
  12. How well do any of you think the game performs as a simulator? 13 and 14 were maddening when the COM vs COM would start a match with a finisher or a top rope superplex to the floor.
  13. This like those pics of pools and bedrooms that hang unsupported over great heights. Fuck no!
  14. Just thinking out loud. A NJPW/WWE show? Could this even work? Would a Tanahashi/Cena match make the world implode? We're getting more Liger right?
  15. The Women's match was some good action that gave Sasha some much needed "get to know you" ring time without her eating a fall. I'd assume this might rotate around a bit until the big matches emerge and the pecking order is clear. Hopefully by the time she does her first job it'll mean something. I'm looking forward to Sasha's obvious and eventual betrayal even if they aren't really projecting that just yet. THEN they can start pushing into the waters they dipped their toe into on NXT. Meaning that the EPICS will come once confidence on the bigger stage is built. Until then… courage.
  16. Did CHICAGO give John Cena a standing ovation? That match was fucking amazeballs!
  17. I thought remaking Battlestar Galactica was a lousy idea. Mostly because remakes blow and the old show was novel but too cheesy. I even blew it off for the first 2 seasons until the Pegasus episodes showed up on demand. Hooked!
  18. And Steamboat just keeps wooing... only very carefully.
  19. Best show ever? I guess if it worked that well for you. Great! Still I've never seen a show overachieve to the degree this show did. All nit picks aside you got to hand them that much.
  20. Barnett wasn't that great this week either. I'm guessing doing several episodes of commentary over a couple days leaves one likely to run out of shit to say.
