  1. I hate your national anthem, but Jon Batiste just nailed it. He deserves better than being treated like shit by Stephen Colbert each night
  2. Would Cardona joining the Dark Order work?
  3. Evil Uno has X-Pac heat with me. Dude never shows ass for a guy in his position on the card either in terms of how much he takes bumps during a match, or post match always seems to avoid comeuppance when the baby faces make the save. Instead of wanting to see that change, it's just "go away child molester gimmick in ill fitting suit jacket". Stu Grayson on the other hand is a big plus every week. Guy takes some crazy bumps and barely gets noticed. Fuck up JR with your dated shitty "don't call me Dick" line. Omega and Page is the conclusion to Sting and Luger we never got, and it's really enjoyable and worth investing time into. I think theres something in a Cardona/Cabana tag team down the line. He's perfectly fine as likeable yet obnoxious show opener guy. I suspect they'll try to flesh him out as a serious underutilised guy instead though. That much I'm less confident on. That MJF promo did no one any favours. Buries Moxley with his shitty Shane Douglas tribute act. Is there any truth to what he's saying? A little, maybe. Enough where people come to the conclusion "hey yeah, he IS a Stone Cold cos player!"...why would I want to see him wrestle that guy then, if he's an inferior rip off thats only in that position because of backstage politics? I really liked the callback to the last time Darby and Mox tagged, and the fakeout coffin drop on the ramp. That was a nice start to things. Enjoyable TV main event. Ricky looks indyrific with the presentation but a nice promo and he's clearly trying his ass off to stay on TV. First time I've seen Warhorse. Didn't really enjoy it. Think he blew up a little (or was that part of the Warrior tribute?). Agree with the earlier comments that it felt like it hurt Cody giving him so much. At some point we're going to need a quick Cody two minute win, either through lucky flash pin or dominant showing, just to add credence to him being able to continue to do the challenge week in week out without any toll taken on him.
  4. Don't get me wrong, love a good sci-fi futuristic set in space film. Anything involving NASA, astronauts, explorations, re-enactment of real life blah. Nope. Can't get into it. "Will they get sucked into space/survive it?" - Probably. Maybe an unimportant lower cast member dies. "Will the ship be able to land?" - Yeah, probably. If not, there's a heroic sacrificial moment. The end.
  5. I always confuse Interstellar and Gravity. Space exploration films do nothing for me at all.
  6. I see most production companies agreeing to lower timeframe between movie release to digital from 42 days down to 17. Not great news for existence of cinema.
  7. Uh oh. Now you've gone and upset people......
  8. It'll be a 4 hour long mini movie. The boat hits an iceberg. The roster rush for the lifeboats. People pulling Billy Zane style heel turns all over the place. Vince goes down with the ship eating a steak wrap.
  9. I'd really like to conduct a seance and try and reach Randy Savage to ask him about this, but feel like I'd get him after having done some pure ghost cocaine, and I'd end up with carpal tunnel in my wrist trying to keep up with the Ouija board responses
  10. That hat is pretty cool, and a definite upgrade on the ode to Times New Roman in everything else
  11. This scenario is better if she prefaces this statement by putting Baker St on a record player.
  12. I don't have an MLB team - I really want to support them for this excellent display. On the other hand, I went to their online store and their merchandise is the worst I've ever seen from a sporting franchise. .....Anyone else doing similarly well?
  13. You think Biden will beat him in November though?
  14. Agree with what you're saying from the pay-windah perspective. Don't necessarily believe that they need to move up the card or down or whatever (although noting that Hager and Jungle Boy were already doing those things before their shots), but for a life changing title shot, there should be some sort of effect on their character/storyline, etc. "How has losing this match impacted them as a character the week after?" sort of thing. It's the same thing WWE gets criticised for in having smiley just happy to be here, fun loving babyfaces. These guys come out the week after and barely acknowledge the loss. And when that happens with guys losing in the main event at Wrestlemania, that will take some time to adjust, but I don't like that no-one so far has taken that loss and used it to develop their character or storyline, even just for a few weeks. From a pure sports perspective, yes, those matches will do exactly as you say, and build them as credible contenders ongoing, but for the time being, not enough seems to be doing done to draw interest to those matches down the line, but that could also just be me not really wanting to see Cody beat a different guy every week for the sake of it either.
  15. I think that's something that would make sense long-term if they build on it - sort of like the Prizefighter gimmick Kevin Owens had when he first joined NXT. I just hope they build a story on to it, that the loss meant something, why he sacrificed it by tapping, etc. The Ricky Starks program didn't really do it, he just had a few matches on Dark and then randomly ended up in a pairing with Brian Cage instead. In fact, all of the matches to date haven't really amounted to anything. How do they continue to promote this opportunity of a shot against Cody Rhodes as such a prestigious career changing experience, when to date, nothing has changed for any of the 6 for better or worse? Jungle Boy is still in the same spot. Marq Quen in the same, lesser spot, probably Sonny Kiss too. By the same token, Hager should be pissed about dropping a controversial fall to Cody rather than carrying on with routine Inner Circle stuff. Archer should want a rematch. MJF has beaten Cody before and is undefeated, why wouldn't he want to take his title?
  16. I enjoyed the opener. But I'll point this out. The finish sucked. Not the first time we've had a match where some guy talks up having the shot of a life time, one chance, etc and then loses to Cody in fairly meagre fashion for someone who's just talked up the importance of the match. It didn't put the figure four over as a death finish. Didn't work in the context of a self preservation finish either when Cage/Taz did it the week earlier and beat us over the head with it. Dude's laying there surrounded by thumbtacks. At least throw them at him mid-hold? Pass out in the hold? Maybe a reversal, only for Cody to then reverse it back and lead to the tap out. Having the guy come out, cut the most fire promo in ages, about how bad he is, and nothing like he's ever faced before, only to job to his opponent's third string finisher without barely a yelp...yeesh.
  17. With JR as the Smee to his Captain Hook? That'd have been tremendous.
  18. Cena appearing on Oliver was interesting, especially as he still identified himself as being from WWE.
  19. This Cody group with FTR. Is it better to have Hangman Page in the group or against them? Hangman challenging Cody for the TNT title, only for FTR to turn on him, and the group gets established by them breaking Hangman's leg (can we get a cage involved) would be something. - sets up Hangman's chase of Cody for the title - Hangman find a new partner to take on FTR (assuming they drop the belts) - or having to convince Omega to team with him again - Omega stands up for Page and feuds with Cody while Hangman recovers, or Kenny joins the above group instead. Bucks then have to put their differences aside with Page to back him up instead
  20. Ha I remember that segment. Also bands I picked up off here: Husker Du and Echo & The Bunnymen.
  21. I joined in 2001 as the guy I bought tapes off posted here. .... https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/founder-city-watch-website-jailed-15874693 I take advice from terrible sources
