  1. 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.
  2. OCT 2017 ANIMATED WRESTLING GIF THREAD

    See also: every attempt at a top-rope maneuver on an opponent prone laying on the mat that is countered by raising a boot.
  3. FLOSLAM/WWN HAS OFFICIALLY HIT TIRE FIRE THREAD STATUS

    I am 50% on-guard that this is another shitty Gabe-produced "worked-shoot". I could totally see him using the recent mess to try to work everyone into buying the shows being advertised as "The End" and have it end with a crappy takeover/rebranding angle, led by the "hottest free agent in wrestling" Ethan Page.
  4. Lance Russell Has Died

    I also loved that being the moral compass of the show, Lance would also express disappointment when the faces lowered themselves to some of the same tactics in combating the heels. I like to imagine that at the Pearly Gates, St. Peter was on minute ten of listing Lance's accomplishments and good deeds in life, when Lance calmly and politely interrupted him to say "Aw, c'mon now St. Peter, I have a show to run here." And then St. Peter smiled and opened the gates.
  5. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    Eh, that's nowhere near as bad as the episode of TNT I just watched where Roddy Piper talked about how it was just MLK Day but isn't it weird that "Mr. T and Junkyard Dog woke up the day after MLK Day and decided to walk around with chains around their necks". He then said he would fight Mr. T "anytime,anywhere...and I PLAY SUN CITY, MAAAAAAN!"
  6. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    As touring NWA Champion he also went to Japan multiple times per year. Since according to Hulk Hogan, if you cross the international date line enough times it's possible to live 400 days in a single year, I am sure that is skewing Flair's number somewhat.
  7. Raw is Worth Zero Dimes - 9/25/2017

    I was actually on guard for the payoff to the "no touch clause" being that Kurt Angle just signed a random slip of paper that had no language addressing that and gave it to Enzo because (a) Enzo is annoying and Kurt wanted him to go away and (b) he knew Enzo was a dumbass, would see the signature, and not bother to read the rest of the paper to see if it actually said anything of substance. Hell I am still not ruling that out as a plot resolution.
  8. FLOSLAM/WWN HAS OFFICIALLY HIT TIRE FIRE THREAD STATUS

    Wow. Given the latest episode if the Between The Sheets podcast going into a deep dive on the 1997 USWA sale/lawsuit/closure, I will laugh my ass off if this ends up being a digital age version of that. And I saw something referencing Gabe sharing data with WWE, I will also laugh my ass off if WWE gets named as a defendant and this results in Gabe getting his WWE connections turfed.
  9. FLOSLAM/WWN HAS OFFICIALLY HIT TIRE FIRE THREAD STATUS

    What happened? Did Olu Oluwami pull his Nigerian investment funds from FloSlam now too?
  10. That seems like...a misrepresentation that WWE could sue them for, especially with tossing in "The Glorious One" in the commentary notes.
  11. R.I.P., Bobby Heenan

    Now this is a match i am sad was never broadcasted. And on those MSG shows the crowd was ready to cheer Heenan on in kicking Fuji's ass too. And Heenan cut a "FIIIIIRRRRED Up!" level ass-kicking face promo on Fuji afterward too.
  12. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING PHOTOS THREAD

    Tim Storm makes sense as NWA Champ if your logic is "this guy is 52 years old, Vince likely isn't going to sign him away from us."
  13. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING PHOTOS THREAD

    Jerry looks to me like he is just seeing Tim Storm for the first time and wondering "Who the fuck is THIS guy?"
  14. R.I.P., Bobby Heenan

    A personal favorite Heenan performance of mine that isn't super well-known: Survivor Series Showdown 1990. Bobby is INSANE on this one. What would otherwise be a throw-away show of non-important matches to build to the Survivor Series PPV becomes one of the most entertaining watches ever thanks to Bobby channeling early'80s coked-up Robin Williams and just going on a rapid-fire one-liner tear throughout the whole show that is actually a little exhausting when all is said and done.
  15. R.I.P., Bobby Heenan

    This one hits hard. Had oddly enough been seeing a lot of Bobby this past week in random viewing. Had gotten back this past week into throwing on the Network and having TNT on in the background. Currently at the build for Wrestlemania 2 and Heenan has been on fire in appearances building up Hogan/Bundy. And just today - prior to reading the news - I watched Disc One of the new WWE Unreleased 86-95 DVD set and was marveling and laughing at Heenan having some awesome stooge moments and getting his comeuppance in early matches on that set, with a big smile on my face the whole time. Thank you to the first heel manager that both made me angry and made me laugh my ass off at the same time.
