  1. What in the fuck was that ending? Why isn't their more discussion on this? Is the apathy so strong that people simply don't care anymore.. it was totally bizarre, strangest thing I've seen since the anal bleeding call on Raw. Does Vince have a fascination with peoples assholes?
  2. Nothing like my habits back in the mid 00's that's for sure, I would download hundreds of hours worth of wrestling every week. I'll watch Raw, NXT, all the pay per views and pick and choose anything else when I'm bored (I much prefer gaming whilst catching up on the latest podcasts I follow) That being said I've been slowly working my way through Smackdown 2002 at the rate of an episode a week which has been fun. You do sort of outgrow the habits of watching every single thing out there, but never fully.
  3. C'mon, man. Can you at least qualify that with "in WWE history." There are like six guys in All Japan back in the day that are in a different stratosphere than John Cena. From a WWE perspective of course, I should have been more specific. I can't think of a wrestler (from the modern era, anyway) that has consistently had so many great matches on top of the card.
  4. Cena is the best big match wrestler of all time. I can't believe the fact he took a Piledriver or two, or that he's earned someones respect through longevity alone (and thus ignoring the countless classic matches he's had) sways someones opinion in 2015. This is DVDVR, not wrestlingforum.
  5. I've seen big Dave wrestle live this year and I was so impressed, seemed to have an aura about him that you can't teach. Cole/Mastiff is a match everyone should try and seek out to see how agile and intelligent of a wrestler he's becoming, hell I'd put that match ahead of anything Rollins has done from a singles perspective in the past year. The Bastard wins this one for me.
  6. To be fair to the guy he hasn't really had a fair crack of the whip. He was brought in as this prestigious Heyman guy but he really wasn't was he? He was a hurdle for Punk to jump over and to hand out beatings to for months on end until Punk inevitably got his hands on Heyman. Any redeeming qualities Axel had left from his re-debut onwards evaporated and pretty much killed him. Hell, Axel has had it way worse than 90% of the guys we all moan about, fair play to him for running with something that's working and getting over, I have no doubt it's probably his idea, too.
  7. #sayyesmadonna #sayyesdvdvr Grado is the closest thing to Big Daddy the UK has produced in two decades. TNA were bananas not to piggy back off of the exposure he garnered through the #sayyesMadonna campaign, but.. TNA. That being said I can't see his gimmick getting over with the North American audience, regardless of his recent bookings. But from a UK perspective he's been a revelation.
  8. Oh yeah I agree with you. I would argue against the Rollins/Orton feud being a ''nothing'' feud, though. The booking since Orton's comeback (bar Fastlane) has been totally overly complicated bullshit. Orton should have been all guns blazing last Monday, my interest is waning. But in the eyes of the casual, Orton's inevitable turn will be pretty huge.
  9. I got my haircut at the barbershop today by this pretty cute girl and we were exchanging the usual media influenced bullshit small talk topics and then we got onto the topic of my hair, my hair was pretty long as a teenager due to wanting to be Shawn Michaels, well I brought that up not thinking she would know he is or anything. Well turns out this chick is a massive wrestling fan, but wasn't satisfied with the current storylines and the treatment of Cena (she also hates Daniel Bryan, because of his hair) but she was stoked that Randy was back and couldn't wait for him to put Rollins in his place at 'Mania. So yeah, Orton/Rollins isn't a nothing feud, it's actually been built for months and in the eye of the casual it's maybe a big deal?
  10. Yeah this is wrong, it was cool as fuck, as was his Goldberg clear out of everybody following. His promo opening the show on the other hand, the drizzles. I don't want to get locked into the whole ''Reigns isn't ready'' debate, but the fucker isn't ready. Keeping the stick away from him would be a good start. I've watched thousands of hours worth of promos, I'd put Heyman's up there in the top 5, fuck it, top 3. Even the microphone shutting off actually added to the intensity. It's bizarre that they're so adamant on Reigns talking. Far too much Rollins on this show, was sick of him by the Stewart segment. Wasn't sure whether Stewart calling Rollins on his inability to read was improvised or not (I don't think it was) but it was great on Stewart's part, he totally owned that whole segment. and yeah Vince fucking hates Bryan, it's obvious now. Having Harper toss him around like Mike Bell was fucking silly, but now he's booked in a throw away ladder match too.. insanity, I'd rather have him win the Andre thing, just for my own peace of mind.
  11. White and Gold initially, but keeps flipping to Royal Blue and Black.
  12. Yeah I gather the gif is old but from the look of his arms recently, I can't imagine him looking like the Usos under that vest. I don't know what spawned the Roman is flabby shit to begin with.
  13. Stoked he's growing his hair out again and for someone who supposedly couldn't walk properly (because the internet said so) that's a bunch of weight he's squatting.
  14. Poor Wade is going to have to get his title fumigated when he gets it back, that's if, Ambrose doesn't pawn it off to pay off a drug debt or something.
  15. I read that as Sting porno. But yeah, I feel sorry for the Sasha Banks' of the world having to endure that every week.
  16. Imagine Sami Zayn coming back after the beating he received by Kevin Owens, putting him out of action, only to be buddies again after Regal mediates the showdown between the two. The Orton stuff is absolute fucking garbage, I really liked Orton's return and the START of his promo, he showed fire and intensity and I could really get behind him.. until, around 3 minutes in when the Authority came out and supposedly manipulated him back into negotiations to rejoin them. Rollins nowhere to be seen. Ok, fair enough. I'm sure it's just a ploy until Orton eventually can get him alone in the ring later on in the show... but, the next thing they're all backstage, Orton and Rollins looking like goofballs standing next to each other, they shake hands, just cringe worthy. That's before all the shenanigans later on during the tag match. The crowd didn't know what to do when Orton was on the offense in the tag match. Orton looked like such a goof all night long. This was a real opportunity to put the rocket pack (cheers, Steve) on him and really build some serious momentum to a potential title challenge down the line for a heel Reigns or something. I understand what they're trying to do, Gregg, but it doesn't work with me, fuck all this subtle shit, Orton should have been destroying everyone in his path to get to Rollins.
  17. Fuck WWE/Reddit guy Fuck his spoilers And fuck anyone posting them without spoiler tags Word, I couldn't get into either main events after reading those earlier, fuck that dude.
  18. I've met Colt, years ago, he was a cool guy, he's definitely not in the Mick Foley/Punk bracket of treating his fans like shit. The only thing that annoys me about him is how he comes across as this sympathetic figure because he didn't get a fair crack of the whip when he was Scotty Goldman, you can't listen to one podcast of his without it being brought up, the dudes a millionaire, he's probably done more for himself being out of that company than he ever could have in it.
  19. Interesting that this is on their website of all places, as you say, it could easily be laying under the waist band of his trunks and thus being compressed and hidden from plain view, I actually went back and watched that Rumble match to find out myself if I could see anything (yeah, I'm a loser) and saw nothing. But, I remember Kane also having a huge growth http://www.pwmania.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/kane-bump.jpg on his back in late November last year which was before Punk's podcast and conveniently sometime shortly after the podcast aired the lump had been removed. It's all pretty sketchy, I think Punk shitting himself in the ring is testament to the fact he was being fed all sorts from the doc to make him cope with it.
  20. I'd say Neville is way ahead of those guys (and everyone else in wrestling history) in terms of just flying moves. His combination of elevation, quickness, cleanliness, and degree of difficulty just blows away everyone I've ever seen. The amount of times he can rotate his body in a small space is amazing like doing a phoenix splash off the middle rope, the 450 from the apron to the floor, standing corkscrew moonsaults, etc. The red arrow is one of the most beautiful moves in wrestling, and he hits it, and everything else, dead on every time. He looks like he could be an olympic gymnast or diver, just so far beyond what you'd expect from even an elite wrestling flyer. The other thing I've noticed about Neville is that crowds are usually lukewarm when he comes out and often favor his opponent if it's someone of similar rank, but by the end of the match, he always gets a ton of heat. I've always been a fan of Neville, and I'm glad other people are coming around on him, even if the accompanying narrative that he became good in just the last couple of months is inaccurate. He's just been working with Zayn and Owens instead of Bo Dallas and Titus O'Neill. I think Neville and Ricochet are this eras Messi and Ronaldo when it comes to flying wrestlers, Ricochet is as, if not more impressive in ability. But you're right, everything Neville does is clean and crisp, you never get the knots in your stomach that you did when you saw Kidman going for the Shooting Star or Punk spring boarding off the ropes with Neville, he hits everything with such precision. He's not one dimensional either, his strikes look good, he can brawl with the best and he's come on leaps and bounds with his promo work, he's an incredible talent.
