  1. FEBRUARY 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    Just bouncing up and down on his trampoline for the rest of eternity, waiting for the phone call...
  2. The Grindhouse Report

    Saturday afternoon Amazon Prime movie watch: BLOOD BEAT (1983) So there's this lady, every time she has an orgasm, a Samurai spirit kills a hunter in Wisconsin. Or, every time a Samurai spirit kills a hunter in Wisconsin, this lady has an orgasm. I never quite figured out the cause-and-effect on that. They also never adequately explained why a Samurai spirit was in Wisconsin to begin with. One of those early 80s flicks where it's slow going at the start but then at minute forty the "WHAAT" moments kick in, and the ending is an nonsensical and insane as one would hope from a movie like this. Unsettling soundtrack that bounces between haunting drone-synth and public domain classical music adds to my theory that the filmmaker was trying to do an Argento flick but didn't have the chops or the actors to truly pull it off. My review: 2.5 stars.

    But Ronda hasn't officially "signed" her Raw contract. Plenty of time for them to pull a swerve and have Shane swoop in with a better offer like he did for WCW. Though that would also be predicated on them making all this hype over Ronda to then use her to try to boost Smackdown's ratings over Raw.
  4. Your 2018 INTERNET MATCHES Thread

    Checked out a few matches from the new MLW show. It's stunning how quickly Tony Schiavone got back into a groove of being a pretty good announcer. And yes, Darby Allin vs Sami Callihan was as insane as anyone could hope for, though the finish was a little bit of a wet blanket.
  5. The XFL Reboot Starts Today

    One of my favorite WWF Superstars "city tourism" openings ever is when Vince proudly proclaimed that the city they were in were home to the champions of the 6-foot-five-and-under World Basketball League. The league folded by 1992, and one of its owners ended up serving 11 years in prison for embezzling 10 million dollars from the pharmacy chain he ran to help fund the league.
  6. One of my favorite Ring of Honor shows ever is the one where they were supposed to run in the National Guard Armory but a military exercise took it over last minute, so ROH had to setup a tent in the parking lot. The overall vibe of the show was fun from start to finish, and it had the added bonus of the Generation Next formation to boot.

    I also wouldn't be surprised if the release was with a "you and Su need to get professional help and work through your shit, and we'll check back in a couple years" spin as well.
  8. FEBRUARY 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    I have actually been digging the dynamic the last few weeks of the in-ring story they are telling where Bray Wyatt is starting to get thrown off and disturbed that his mind games tactics aren't working on Broken Matt. I popped big this week for Bray doing his corner stance only to have Matt scream "WONDERFUL!" and start clapping in approval. If the in-ring aspect of this feud ends up just being bullshit like this for the remainder I am fine with what they are doing.
  9. 2018 INDIE WRESTLING THREAD

    I'm really underwhelmed by the idea of this being on the Spring Break show. I am a fan of both performers and if this was the main event of a Sunday afternoon Chikara show I would be all-in, but goddamn I am not into the idea of watching Quackenbush and David Starr trade holds at 1AM.
  10. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    Vince cracking up and pointing and laughing at Sky Low Low is easily the most human Vince has ever looked on WWF/WWE television, even if it was because he was laughing at a little person with a pie on his head. He also seems genuinely perturbed at how legit drunk Albano was.
  11. NJPW The New Beginning 2018

    Don Callis made a shitty joke about how Goto has a "tremendous set of balls." Kevin Kelly didn't acknowledge the joke, so Callis said it again, it was like the time Bischoff repeated the "scissors" reference on that Nitro while shouting to Sid. Kevin Kelly then started mumbling something about the necklace being Buddhism ritual wear, then Don Callis started obnoxiously yelling that Kelly just looked it on Google while Kelly sounded legitimately pissed that Callis was yelling about that. I actually like Kelly/Callis as a team more than most people, but that seriously may be an all-time contender for worst 30 seconds of wrestling commentary.
  12. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    I know they have Savage vs Michaels on the UK Invasion show and another match from five days later in Munich on the World Tour tape. Has anyone watched both matches yet? Just trying to figure out if they are both worth watching or if they are mostly the same house show tour match.
  13. 2018 INDIE WRESTLING THREAD

    Darby Allin is coming to L.A. to work one of those "bar fight" style shows with no ring later this month against Jeff Cobb. He may actually die that night.
  14. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    As someone that has binged through the entirety of TNT on the Network, I am now 100 percent convinced that the entire existence of Tuesday Night Titans was just a giant "long con" rib on Lord Alfred Hayes.
  15. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    That's been one of my favorite segments to show random folks since I came across it in the '90s. Vince gleefully chomping away at "Python Pills" while Hogan dumps piles of "Python Powder" into the blender. Though I am sad that Bloopers and Bleeps cut out the part where Hulk drops a banana in the blender and casually says "and we'll put a banana in there, FOR THE GIRL IN YOU."
