  1. That whole fucking Universal title lineage is horrible.  Finn and Goldberg were pretty short.  Owens was the usual weak WWE heel because heaven forbid we have strong WWE heels.  And, Brock looked strong but never wrestled.  It's up to Roman to seize the day and make this belt a man's belt.

  2. I had a pleasure to meet him twice and he was a very friendly and kind man.  I was a WWF fan growing up in the 90's and I was obsessed with the WWE title.  Since he was champ before I was born and he held it so long, he came across as a god and still kinda does, to me.  He was the definition of a WWF/E babyface and a man with seemingly infinite integrity.

  3. I just now discovered the GWN app was on the Xbox, so I signed up for the free trial.  The app has a long ways to go to catch up to the Network but it's workable.  No chapter stops is no fun and the fast forwarding and pausing is bad too.  They still have some decent amount of content for $7.99 a month.

    I caught the first TNA show ever and it was more low rent than I remembered.  The crowd was kinda dead and it was sad to see how far wrestling had fallen since 2001.  When WCW died, it was semi-enjoyable and pretty non-wacky but TNA went in the opposite direction creeping towards 2000 WCW levels but with the X-Division.  I might just end up skipping around and watching more current stuff since I'm pretty out of the loop on the product.  I also wish they had a compendium of the Broken Matt stuff so I could just watch that stuff.

  4. I got through that last episode pretty smoothly, and I hope this is a look at things to come.  I just want the CWC every week and I'll be happy.  Give me a unique take on the WWE, not the same re-hashed Cruiserweight division that we have gotten in one form or another since 1997.  Both matches were pretty damn awesome, in their own ways.  I totally got into the story of Kalisto and Lince both wanting to go to Mania and neither accepting a loss easily.  Itami/Strong was pretty nice too and it really built up as the match went on. 

    BTW, I never actually realized how Itami was not a star until now, at least in the WWE.  When he first came in, I really thought he had a good shot in the company but now, a couple years later, I fully understand his placement on the roster.  He can work his ass off and be a star in Japan, don't get me wrong.  Also, does he ever use the GTS anymore or has it been completely phased out?

  5. I got past the first round of Russo Nitros and survived.  I'm up to maybe 3 shows after Souled Out and the shows seem significantly better.  That's not to say that they are good or anything but they are less chaotic and less overbooked, and you actually get some matches and clean finishes sometimes.  I guess I'd probably dislike them more if I wasn't just watching months of Russo crap.  It's pallet cleansing, to be honest.

    One thing I am amazed at is Russo seemingly didn't start the Booker T/Stevie Ray/Ahmed program fighting over the letter T.  Ahmed sticks out like the sore thumb but so far, I'm entertained by the program, I have to admit.  You got Stevie Ray calling people cracker jack fruit booties, Ahmed doing a wind-up/jack-in-the-box middle finger to the crowd, and Clarence Mason, what's not to enjoy a little bit.

    Jarrett's schtick got old back in November, btw.  He's like a polished Paul Roma.

    We need a clip of Sid from Oct 5, 1999 Nitro freaking out because Goldberg has put his car in a crusher machine and then returned it to Sid's parking space. 

    Sid was maybe the worst actor to ever get multiple chances at top of the card. 

    I actually don't remember that.  I must've fast-forwarded too much.  During that period, they really had a ton of small segments that when you fast-forward, you might end up missing stuff.
