  1. I just want to see all the red herrings show up and be all obnoxious about knocking back such a group of losers, and kinda incredulous to think they'd even consider it in the first place.

    Then there's confusion as to what they actually said, and the Egg-salted One, turns out to be Hector Guerrero as The Eggman.

    Or just basically end up being The Trio from Buffy.

    Speaking of Gunpowder, Kit Harrington was in a few more shitburger movies.  Pompeii, Silent Hill: Homecoming, and the Death and Life of John F. Donovan.

    IIRC, he's going to play Dane Whitman in the upcoming Marvel joint, The Eternals, so a Black Knight spin-off may be in the works if Eternals doesn't tank.

     

    Ha - Pompeii is looming on my to watch list. I'm not sure I can stomach it.

    7 Days In Hell was pretty fucking funny also.


  3. Has anyone from Game of Thrones gone on to be in anything thats been good?

    Emilia Clarke...pretty much universally awful stuff since.

    Gunpowder was boring.

    Sophie Turner with X-Men films no good. Star Wars haven't fared much better.

    The Hot Zone with Davos entertaining but not good.

    Richard Madden in the Elton John bio pic probably the best of the lot. Klondike was passable.

    Charles Dance made Project Gallipoli that wasn't awful but still a snooze. Ser Friendzone made Cleverman which was really good too.

    I probably liked Fighting With My Family more than most...

    Oh...wait. Peter Dinklage with cameo in Avengers and of course 3 Billboards.

    Anyway...the strike rate has not been gold.


  4. I think they dropped the ball a little with the presentation of Wardlow.

    They've built him up as this unstoppable, stoic monster.....only to bring him out doing Steve Bradley cosplay in his tights and undercut. I felt he showed too much emotion at times too. Him coming out in gear similar to say, Mr. Hughes/Big Bubba would have been far more on point for what they were trying to get across.

    But credit where credit is due - great swanton.

  5. Yeah, fair enough. Terrible idea and sorry to bring it up. Apologies if anyone took offence, it wasn't intentional.

    Terrible execution aside, I think the point I'm trying to make is that by refusing to mention that she's trans on TV, it becomes like every other real life thing that needs to be mentioned, in the same way Edge/Lita/Matt was.

    Only a matter of time before it gets mentioned for cheap heat by some carney going into business for themselves (as Sean Morley is now), and once you do that, for mine anyway, you lose any opportunity to do something good with it. 

    What that good is, clearly I have no idea.

  6. I got to watch up to the Street Fight this morning.

    That opener....what story were they telling?

    And I get that the in-ring guys have the "Just two big guys throwing bombs" excuse.

    The commentary was horrible in that regard. Just guys trying to get their shit in. Mauro's dumb loud catch phrases. Nigel getting his preprepared talking points in with no real structure or timing to anything. And Beth just wanting to be heard...and she's absolutely terrible when she can't bring it back to talking about herself. Oh yep, you didn't have a match in Ohio Valley with either of these two way back when? 

    It was a poorly structured match in the context of a great spectacle.

  7. Could they run a Caster Semenya angle with Nyla and Britt trying to push the fictitious board of directors to put her through ridiculous standards and testing to ensure she's meeting the necessary testosterone angles to remain the champ?

    I feel like if its done with the appropriate respect shown, it puts huge heat on Britt and sympathy for Nyla. On the other hand, one transphobic audience cheering for Britt and it's super messed up.

  8. Common's raps were terrible. Unless he was going for a "MIchael Scott at the Dundies" vibe.

    Would have been a good year to do US vs The World format. Especially with how Giannis drafted.

    Giannis/Doncic/Embiid/Simmons/Pascal/Sabonis/Jokic/Gobert would have taken some beating.

    Even in one of Mid-South's primary markets, they use the WWF nickname. No respect for Watts.

    Also, good luck getting 12 jurors in Mississippi who didn't watch pro wrestling any time between the early 80s and mid 90s. Assuming that you'll be disqualified from the Dibiase jury if you mention how much you wanna throw Ted in jail for what he did to the JYD in 82

    I really want a live telecast of the jury selection, with all of them being brought off by the Million Dollar Man to do degrading/humiliating things instead.

  10. I feel like they booked themselves in to a corner with Brandi coming out last week to support Cody and this week on commentary during MJF's match.

    Surely if Cody can't touch him and he's doing everything he can to get Cody to stop the match, he goes after her?

    Had a dream about wrestling (kind of) just there, after watching Dynamite.  My band got offered a gig playing as a backing band for Darby Allin.  

    We didn’t practice or listen to any of his songs but when we went on stage he said “just wing it, all the songs are just C and D chords”.  And also, I was naked on stage.

    Gotta love a good anxiety / wrestling dream.

    Blues riff in B, watch him for the changes and try to keep up?

  12. Well, I guess now that everyone else loves Britt Baker, we're going back to:

    The guy can work as a great heel or face and has an amazing Swanton. In all seriousness the guy should be a huge star by years end.

    When you see hisswanton it is an absolute thing of beauty. The guy is also one of the most humble people you will ever meet. He is someone that will be a huge star by the end of 2020. 

    He is one of the most level headed wrestlers you will meet and does an amazingswanton. He will turn heads in AEW I'm just surprised he didn't debut in Pittsburgh as it is his home base

    You'd think, if the idea was for Seth and Roman to be the biggest stars and carrying the company, they would both have Mania wins over at least two of Cena, Orton, Batista, Taker, Triple H or Lesnar. But where is Cena anyway? He did the Rock feud with the whole "I'm not going anywhere" promo, and he's been disappeared for ages. He was attempting to give the rub to younger talent towards the end there, but the two guys he really put over were Punk and Bryan, which didn't do much for the company long term.

    Reigns beat Taker and Triple H at Mania. Rollins beat Triple H and Lesnar?
