  1. Bill Watts would fire Jimmy Havoc for not defeating Excalibur in that fight
  2. Jimmy shows up on the wrong day in the WWE and his gimmick is either "less scary version of Ozzy Osbourne" or "Paige's brother from Fighting With My Family"
  3. watched the 3 seasons in under a week.. Joyce sorta went in the "Lois from Malcolm in the Middle" direction at times during S3. Neither Byers son really did much with their season 3. Season 3 sorta had a Spiderman 3 sort of thing where they were trying to do two simultaneous storylines where it got sort of implausible that either could be overcome. Also it kinda got to the point where it felt like the writers put things in such a corner that they went with "just have Eleven show up and do stuff" to get out of danger. Aside from when they went to "just have Dustin show up and somehow save Steve/Robin" Leaving aside the argument about "Russians in Indiana in the mid-80s" since this is a show where there's a monster controlling people and all. The base under the mall aspect may have not been very subtle in a few ways. The Flayer's plan to get Eleven was sorta flawed. Okay, you have Billy, and his stepsister is a friend of the people you want to get, and the plan to lure them in involves having Billy go for a lifeguard and her newspaper editor father. Like the Flayer was more concerned about making sure he stayed out of the newspapers than actually getting into the loop of the friends. Then again, I guess the plan to lock Billy in a sauna until something.. or "I should lock myself in a room to get away from this liquid monster" plans weren't smart either, so.. Nancy having mid-80s Madonna hair for an entire season was neat. Getting outside of Hawkins means what.. a season where Eleven/Will/Jon/Joyce are one of the clusters having to deal with things. Will the long burn of Episode 7 of S2 lead to having some of those characters showing up again.
  4. Obviously the attendance in Charlotte would have been better if not for (checks yesterday's sports score) people staying home to watch UNC basketball on the ACC Network?
  5. yeah, the whole "one show is in commercial while the other is in commercial" thing is either somebody not being good at counterprogramming or somebody being good at it.. from what i've seen so far, I think the NXT matches are probably better on average, but the AEW matches are longer, so it's possible to watch a match for awhile on AEW and miss multiple NXT matches live. I've sorta taken the "change the channel at a break" approach to the simultaneous programs (similar to my approach with radio presets while driving). So this week was a good week for the stature of HHH in the future scheme of things, since his guys essentially had to step up due to certain "difficulties" on Friday and there's at least a short-term boost.
  6. gotta give a big thank you to the people at the Riyadh International Airport for their help in the Survivor Series storyline and in helping NXT's 11/6 rating
  7. The gap has moved from 518k on October 2nd to 9k on November 6th.
  8. 822k for AEW and 813k for NXT. AEW is up 63k. NXT is up 233k. Excited for the possibility of comparing quarter hours to draw conclusions about what draws and what doesn’t.
  9. Jungle Boy Joey Janela and Bad Boy Jack Perry... that will make JR happy
  10. well, Matt Riddle might be feeling that dive later tonight.
  11. I did kinda like how the Dawsons coming out was pretty much the equivalent to a Mid South TV standby match
  12. it's all fun and games until Chris Jericho is working nights hosting the Coast to Coast radio show on half of the clear channel ~~station~~ AM stations
  13. one of you will have to check to see if the topic of UFO's came up.. yes, that's a TIJ episode description.. not even a Halloween week one (like the Bigfoot episode)
  14. I just checked the Florida voter registration records, and Jericho is registered No Party Affiliation. So, he's telling the truth about himself (technically, people who do volunteering might be a bit more cynical about self proclaimed independents who always vote for the same party). NPA is not to be confused with "the independent party" which was where people on Florida ended up registered if they wrote Independent on their registration, Macho Man Randy Savage was registered into that "party", for example.
  15. To be honest, Seth Rollins going at Dave Meltzer is one of the most entertaining things that Rollins has done lately. But the situation just smells like we should get a 4 vs 4 vs 4 Survivor Series match where Rollins walks out on his team.
  16. the bulimia theory has been mentioned recently... also I suspect the wisdom shifted from "if his brothers had drug problems, why wouldn't he?" to "his brothers weren't very good at hiding their drug problems so how would he have hidden them" gonna note that the main flight back was a 747 with a few hundred people in it (and whatever else they were hauling to Riyadh and back) so they had a limited window to really get them back before Friday night (and they couldn't even get the flight of 20 back in time, although they may have realized this mid-flight, diverted to Newark, and called the NXT guys, who also came in late). So in a limited window, do you go all-out to try and get people back on late Friday night instead of Saturday morning when it means nothing to Smackdown anyways, or do you let things playout to get them back on Saturday morning. So maybe they should get it in writing to save themselves from batshit crazy 80s scheduling or something...
  17. So this story could swing like how the “conventional wisdom” on the David Von Erich death swung from “it was drugs” to “maybe it wasn’t actually drugs and he had an eating disorder”
  18. wonder if Paul Heyman offered any advice on how to talk to an unhappy roster that feels like they were deprived of something they were owed. But yeah, wrestlers as an industry had a lot of old school people who think the NFL is worked. So, it wouldn't surprise me if this was actually benign and it wouldn't surprise me if there was an international clampdown on allowing WWE guys out of Riyadh (aside from Vince's plane, Lesnar's plane, Flair/Hogan's plane, and a plane with 20 of the 'most valuable' people from leaving). Maybe the excuse is actually legit and they got fucked in a bureaucratic mess because of the usual bullshit, along with the complexities of doing business in Saudi Arabia on a Friday.
  19. Keith is shaped in a way that makes his little guy stuff look like it should squish people. As opposed to little guy stuff where the guy doing the move looks like he should hurt more than the person taking the move. and that's how you end up with a move where Carolina rubs her butt over the face of an opponent in the corner
  20. I get the sense that Natalya and Lacey Evans will get a few extra Ws purely as a thank you for going over to Riyadh.
  21. in before Brock shows up on Smackdown and acts like he never left.
  22. also, whenever Velasquez comes back, he should be the Superfriend who makes saves for imperiled babyfaces because he's looking at it from the real world POV and not the WWE POV where nobody ever tries to save faces.
