  1. They just need to do what they do with every other directionless but still popular, midcarder. Tag team with Sheamus. Have him hit his head and decide he's now Rick O'Shea, and doing a Brad Pitt in Snatch gimmick.
  2. I think they do the Sid/Hogan vs Taker/Flair match that they did on SNME. I would have liked to see either a Sid/Hogan vs Flair/Savage dynamic (similar to the Taker/Batista vs Shawn/Cena dynamic), or even the Mega Powers reuniting to take on Sid and Flair. Hogan and Savage's dynamic post 1991 was weird.
  3. I hope MJF makes good on his word and joins the Wolfpac, which is just him, Dialysis Konnan, Wardlow in red and black face paint and a Fubu jersey, and Kevin Nash via Zoom.
  4. Didn't Bret Hart of all people powerbomb him during the World Title tournament in 99?
  5. Fangio with some terrible clock management there.
  6. I wonder if the monthly PPV model comes early, then you fast track the multi man/team matches that didn't really turn up until mid to late 96 in the WWF. That Shawn/Bret/Taker dark match that did the loop on RAW would have been pretty cool. (and yes there were monthly PPVs by then)
  7. In fairness to Houston, when was the last time a player was just so clearly mentally shot like Westbrook was this series? Like I'm going back to Muggsy Bogues' jump shot post "Shoot it you fucking midget". His free throws were hard to watch. Like, I thought, one more miss and you'd see a nervous breakdown play out on court, and perhaps if Rondo's brother wasn't dealt with so quickly, it may have eventuated.
  8. I hope they trade Harden for Giannis. Austin/Bret level double turn
  9. wasnt there a concerted effort by him to get OJ in to wrestle a PPV?
  10. Late 94 you probably get Bret vs Anvil and Bret/Davey Boy vs Owen/Anvil
  11. If WWF went to monthly PPVs from the get go, what sort of PPV cards did we miss out on between 85 to 94?
  12. someone mentioned the Johnny Polo/Marty Jannetty match from RAW 1994 a few weeks ago. Watched it last night and wow, its amazing. Both for it being such a good match ahead of its time, but also having the absolute worst match for the story being told. Polo's debut match as a manager and then goes out and does a huge amount of high spots and dives in a sprint with Jannetty. And you can tell Vince is pissed on commentary. Any other matches like this come to mind? HHH/Orton's blood feud resulting in a rest hold filled borefest at Mania another.
  13. I'd play possum taking the better part of an hour to exaggeratedly climb one rung of the ladder. Then I'd kick the other guy in the dick. ??? Profit.
  14. I wonder how much it is and is perceived to be a flow on from the NBA playoffs
  15. I felt like that promo was setting up Kingston, Butcher and Blade vs the Lucha Bros and their little British friend at some point when possible
  16. Gordon and Tucker just completely AWOL. A lot left to Harden...and Covington before he got his nose rearranged.
  17. They've just separated church and state this week. It's an exciting time to get on their bandwagon I guess?
  18. Yeah, as an outsider to the US health system, it's mind boggling to consider in the context of the average office job, let alone wrestlers doing high risk shit in roles that have little to no job security.
  19. Can anyone clarify the employment status of AEW roster members? Contractors also? Seems massively hypocritical for AEW to be taking shots at WWE over it, if their situation is not much better. I mean, yeah, they let them do their own third party deals, but probably wouldn't need to if they were provided health care benefits..

    I thought it was worse that he offered it to the TD, opponent and the umpire given the need for social distancing. It looked like he extended his hand and either realised the optics of it, or the umpire refused it?
  21. I think as good as his 2000 was in its isolated context, its set this ridiculous precedent for how much of the match the heel should take, irrespective of whether they're going over or not. I really can't remember a HHH match, heel or face where he didn't take 50% of the match at a minimum. Regardless of the result. There was never a match from his first title win onwards where he didn't just get absolutely dominated. Even his against the odds matches with Khali and Kozlov had some fairly elaborate comeback sessions. And now, like you say, its the standard for every young heel with a
