  1. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

  2. SDL is The Tragic Death of The Ascension - 11/28/2017

    Does anyone know what won Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic in the Observer that year? It must have been something incredibly morbid if showing four straight minutes of graphic injury replays presented with Faces of Death-style voiceover and narration didn't win it.
  3. NOV 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    Given the success of the Bullet Club shirts in Hot Topic, I wouldn't be surprised if Cody and the Bucks try to use that to leverage Hot Topic into sponsoring and being a promotional partner for the show. They have been presenting sponsors of rock and Metal tours from bands that are hot sellers for them so it wouldn't be too far out of the realm of possibility.
  4. 2017 ROH DISCUSSION THREAD

    Just saw the pic Christopher Daniels posted of his burnt back after the match. I gotta admit, he is definitely not someone I ever saw doing such a spot, and it is extremely odd that it was on a house show and not a PPV. And goddamn, that was a LOT of fire. I am numb to this sort of spot being on deathmatch shows and sleazy indie lucha, but on an untelevised show with Christopher Daniels and Cody Rhodes, I am part of the crowd asking, "WHY?"
  5. [MOVIE] 2017 UPCOMING MOVIE DISCUSSION

    I caught The Disaster Artist last night. It really is an insane film. The reaction of "What the fuck did I just watch?" I had after the credits rolled was almost the same level as when I saw The Room for the first time, but this time it was also partially because I saw a genuinely great movie. It really is scary just how much James Franco disappears into portraying Tommy Wiseau, it was a similar vibe to Jim Carrey disappearing into Andy Kaufman in Man On The Moon. The friend I watched with described it as "Ed Wood meets Rocky" and it really is an appropriate description. They also made the movie in a way where I think it will be entertaining even if you have never seen the inspiration behind it, though they made sure to sneak plenty of Easter eggs into it for those in the know.
  6. As someone who as recently as six weeks ago was making fun of Tim Storm, these videos actually did a fantastic job of rehabbing him for the audience they are shooting for and I was pleasantly surprised to see him retain the title. I am actually now of the mindset that instead of having him do defenses every weekend on any Indy that will book him, they should just have him do 1-2 strategically booked defenses per month for the next few months against hot indy names like Janela and Gunner Murphy and build those defenses up with similar YouTube videos, until he finally gets beaten by a name that is big enough to get some recognition - like a James Storm or an Austin Aries - perhaps at Wrestlecon Supershow over Mania weekend.
  7. Joshi Puroresu Discussion Thread

    I feel like a fish out of water comedy about American wrestling nerds getting into wacky adventures wandering through downtown Tokyo at 1 in the morning to find the secret women's wrestling show would be a huge hit at Sundance. It's also a good thing this was 1992 Sean Waltman. I imagine this quest ending way more horrifically if it was 2002 Sean Waltman.
  8. RIC FLAIR 30 FOR 30

    I actually wouldn't be surprised if he picked that headline, Bix has been apoplectic about those segments since the doc aired, basically accusing them of treating Flair exposing himself as "well that's just good old Ric!" Of course, nevermind that every animated sequence depicting those events showed every character in the animation with embarrassed looks on their faces at what they are seeing and all of those stories were framed in the overall narrative context of people speculating why Ric felt the need to pull such antics to begin with. Ric himself in his interviews may have been laughing it off, but I felt overall the doc presented such antics as that of a pathetic figure that was attention-starved and couldn't stand to have a moment alone with his own thoughts. Saying his behavior was "glorified" by the doc is very extreme at least, especially compared to shoot interviews with other wrestlers addressing the same stories, and at most a straight-up misrepresentation of how that was presented in the documentary.
  9. OCT 2017 WRESTLING JIBBER JABBER

    LOL also at Lio Rush going all caps on the word ENTERTAINMENT and putting quotes around "controversial tweet" like a celebrity or political commentator that said something racist or sexist. And then mentioning his family in a total "Please don't fire me over this!" gesture is the icing on the cake. I actually love watching Lio in the ring and hope that someday this is something that can be looked on as youthful arrogance, but yeah, I am okay with him getting buried for a while.
  10. OCT 2017 WRESTLING JIBBER JABBER

    I feel like releasing Lio Rush over that tweet would make him a martyr to indie fans and give him a chance to cash in on this, but I would be more than okay with a punishment of not doing TV and not leaving the Florida house show circuit for the next year and making him be the first to start putting up the ring and the last to tear it down at those shows. I am also thinking he is going to be doing a shitload of bump and chop drills on Monday morning.
  11. OCT 2017 ANIMATED WRESTLING GIF THREAD

    Apparently a friend of the Twitter poster came into possession of footage from Bobby Heenan's archives after his death. This is from Heenan's tape of the Wrestlemania 9 broadcast.
  12. OCT 2017 WRESTLING PHOTO THREAD

    I am genuinely looking forward to seeing which stoner-metal band is going to be the first to trace over this photo for their next album cover.
  13. The really sad part here is that if Sunny really wanted to self-fund her own rehab there are probably still enough Attitude Era/ECW mutant fans left that would pay her money to fart on THEM.
  14. A Rick & Morty Thread

    Not a bad sitcom week for Stone Cold Steve Austin between this and being namedropped on The Good Place later in the week.
