  1. So he would have had more success in a different era? Not too far a stretch given the success of his father.
  2. Bobby Duncum Jnr was the least interesting babyface possible in 1998..
  3. Agreed. This show is just awful viewing now. It's Dexter-like in that I've invested far too much time into it and need closure to justify it. Prediction is that Jax ends up getting locked up for a while, end episode is a flash forward to fifteen or so years later when he gets out, and one of the kids starts reading the letters/diaries of JT and then also Ja and the cycle continues.....
  4. My thoughts on Jax are similar to popular internet opinion re: HHH in 2003. No-one ever gets over on him. Never gives anyone any offence during fight scenes or makes anyone look like a threat, and always has to be the smartest guy there. And then theres the sex with the hot women and being cool with ethnic people. Next episode, he meant for the clubhouse to blow up...
  5. They knew what they were getting into when they walked that aisle. A REAL MAN PAYS THE PRICE AND LOVES HIS WOMAN 365 NIGHTS A YEAR! WHOOO! NO HAIR, NO FLAIR!
  6. A Scott Hall/Razor doco in the Jake Roberts mould would be pretty good. The AWA tag with Curt, brief NWA run as Gator Scott Hall, the Survivor Series tag match, the 1-2-3 Kid match, the two ladder matches, the Action Zone tag match, Jarrett at the Rumble (underrated solid match), the Curtain Call, the BATB 6 man, the drunk Scott Hall vignettes from Nitro, him showing up in the nut home with Flair.
  7. Wasn't there some promo where Hogan's in the ring doing a promo and then spots The Wall watching him from like 5 miles away in a hotel room, and even with the benefit of the camera zooming in, can barely make him out?
  8. I'd like to see TNA combine that demographic that want to see matches stemming from counterfeit jeans rackets gone bad, illegal card games, or miscellanous maritime chicanery, with that pre-teen/twink demographic that like Glee. Guys need to start singing their own entrance music, give it a real West End Story meets Rent vibe, with rival gangs marching to the ring to settle differences with their fists that ultimately get resolved with harmonious words, and maybe a kick line on PPV. Evil Linda Ronstadt, GM would fit in nicely. Have them tackle eating disorders, guys coming out of the closet, maybe even a wrestler with AIDS. I'd like to see wrestling have a Kevin Cooper-like narration over the top of backstage vignettes. "I knew I shouldn't trust Ric Flair, hell, he'd burned me COUNTLESS times, but this time, maybe he had seen the light and needed the Stinger as a partner to tackle The Young Bucks....boy was I in for it later tonight..." Have matches that don't mean shit be sponsored by companies. That British guy and Matt Morgan can fight for the Wendys Xplosion Trophy valued at least $8000. Sponsors, prestige, glamour, guys fighing for something other than whats right. Get rid of titles and replace them with a revolving door of corporate sponsored trophys, cups, ceremonial maces and crowns. The Susan G Komen Trophy holder could come around once a year, you could get mileage out of a heel that pledges to use this trophy, exposure and opportunity to ensure they're all hit by cancer somehow...only to be stopped by a cancer preventing babyface. Pre-tape particular matches that are held in bizarre yet ultimately exotic locations. Blow off feuds on top of volcanos, or a pirate ship, or a spooky video store. Blue screen has not adequately been used in this industry and there is a golden opportunity. Make use of the Sharknado demographic who want to see a real life leper referee a Brazillian street fight. How did TNA fuck this up?
  9. Yeah but you can't have two Shane's. That's just confusing.
  10. That last season of TMNT where it was just snarky breaking of the fourth wall the whole time had its moments, and kinda cool throwbacks to past seasons. But otherwise, yeah, odd.
  11. Cena-Big Show monster truck match?
  12. When Eddy had the LWO in late 98, who was his bodyguard? :S
  13. Has there ever really been a top line promotion built around a tag team? Maybe the Dudleys for a brief time in 99, or the Impact Players, but really can't think of many others.
  14. Easily the best character to pick in the early Smackdown games.
  15. Makes sense in theory to set up a three way match. In practice, don't think it suits the HIAC PPV, especially without a decent co-main event. My prediction is that they ape the Spring Stampede 97 finish and use it as a reason to keep the title vacant.
  16. I think he's around. Maybe even closer than you think. Maybe.
  17. What's everyone's best Big Show match? Don't think there's many better than the Lesnar match at the Rumble. Guy bumps huge for Brock and they get a ton of shit in in such a short time.
  18. 850 foot and a half? That half seems a little redundant.
  19. Mark Henry would go 1000-0
  20. I think it would work as how many of the key WCW players at the time were only defacto faces (Horsemen, DOD), or had spent a large amount of time as a heel (Luger, Giant, DDP). Eventually you have da numbers game turn against the NWO, and bring up how many of the lower card guys only joined the NWO as they were threatened into doing so, and see them jump ship at the first sign of the tide turning, and being real cowardly heels. You could even do the NWO split based on the true believers of the "for life" mantra vs. those who jumped ship. From there, you essentially do the Flair abuse of power angle from a year later, but without as many top guys on the injured list. I reckon it'd be kinda cool to continue the dynamic of Sting appearing from the rafters or under the ring and attacking guys as a heel, I don't think it's ever really been done before during the time of Monday nights to see the show end with this Jaws-like scene where the faces have no idea where this heel threat is going to come from. Of course, it'd be difficult to build up guys like Goldberg and Booker T as they did, but as heels, I'm sure they'd manage.
  21. The double turn would have made sense, given how en vogue it was at the time, how popular the NWO was, and hindsight showing that most of the key players end up turning within 12 months after any way. Keep the slightly screwy finish, have Sting win, but then go "too far" in taking out his frustrations on Hogan post-match, putting him out, before Bret puts a halt to it. The dynamic of whose side is Bret on is probably better with a face NWO, and a WCW who may not be perfect, but to begin with at least, had their hand forced by the actions of the NWO over the past few years, which ends up being a slow build toward Sting vs. Bret at Starrcade the next year.
  22. A tournament for the best Missile Dropkick may not turn a profit though..
  23. The forklift stretcher job was awesome. Reminiscent of the mumu Simpsons episode and the garbage bag full of popcorn scene.
