  1. If only Foley hadn't objected to "Mason the Mutilator"! I can just hear Vince's pronounciation in my head: "MEWWWWWW-tee-lay-TORRRRRRRRR"
  2. I always thought the Apollo Crews name was the laziest. It always felt like "He's kinda got an Apollo Creed feel or maybe Terry Crews...Terry Creed!" "Wait, hear me out, Apollo Crews!" "Brilliant!"
  3. That wedding (and last week's bachelor/bachelorette parties) is probably the best bits of WWE comedy written in years. So stupid, but silly enough that it was highly entertaining. I think my favourite part was when they said cut to the chase and Andre Chase said "Did someone say Andre Chase" and Gargano loudly said "No one said that!" I would like to see Gargano re-sign in NXT, because I think he and Ciampa could basically be the vets who mentor and feud with the younger talent. I do like the shocking Mandy Rose return was that she no longer has blonde hair.
  4. Did not realize that Von Wagner was Wayne Bloom's kid but now I can't unsee it.
  5. I do NOT like the look on that chicken's face!
  6. Interesting choice, as Tony DeAngelo (as he goes by now) is a racist shit-stirring hockey player so disliked by his last team that he got into a fistfight with the goalie and was sat out for the rest of the season so the Rangers could pay him to go away. He's the only player I've seen in my lifetime who was suspended by the league (in juniors) for verbal abuse of a TEAMMATE!
  7. NXT/NWO/DX/Nexus invasion angle that wraps up in 2-3 weeks without them winning any matches
  8. This was a weird show in that the moments delivered but the wrestling was off. Soho-Hayter was dreadful and even dangerous at times, listening to the announcers go into overdrive trying to explain botched moves was painful ("I think that was a flatliner...maybe...what do you think?"). At times it almost looked like Nia-Charlotte from a couple weeks back with a couple wrestlers who maybe weren't cooperating, maybe that's a little too harsh but what I saw looked bad. Mox-Suzuki was clearly short on time but it also looked off. There were a couple times where they clearly hit each other with something and then no-sold it not in a Strong-style way but in a "Wait, was that supposed to be a hit or a miss way?" like when Suzuki kicked Moxley clearly connected on the kick but Moxley held onto it as the announcers tried to sell a block or when Moxley hit a clothesline and Suzuki just kind of stood there and put him in a waistlock. But the Danielson debut was good. The Cole debut was very good (Such a good way of turning the crowd who had popped for his return against him: go after beloved Tony Schiavone!). The Punk segment was good (I'm a little meh on him feuding with Team Taz). Even the Top Team stuff seemed to hit pretty well. But I actually really loved the announcing tonight. Taz planting seeds for his outburst against Punk with his questioning of Schiavone about Punk earlier in the show. Schiavone delivering maybe the line of the night when Taz asked how he could hate MJF ("Because he suuucks") only for Taz to maybe outdo him by telling JR that he was his grandma's favourite referee (Did he also ask afterwards if the refs wore shirts back in those days? I rewound it twice but couldn't quite hear). Even JR was super into everything and even if his references are super dated ("He's moving kinda slow...at the junction!") a more dialed-in JR is way more fun. Also, super bummed The Butcher wasn't on tonight!
  9. One of the announcers used to talk about how the stairs weighed anywhere from 150-250 lbs and I used to laugh because of how easily some guys carried them around...but maybe it wasn’t hyperbole?
  10. The closest might be Dalton Castle who was never presented out and out as "gay" but came to the ring with two scantily-clad men whom he referred to as his "boys", often used them as furniture to sit on when doing interviews. IIRC, he was briefly a heel, but the crowd quickly turned him face, he feuded with Silas Young over his "lifestyle" but ended up defeating him and eventually becoming World Champion (Unfortunately, he was so physically decimated by this point that his reign was rather short and lackluster). Now I don't know if Castle is LGBT himself or just playing it up, and the character wasn't out and out LGBT but I'd say he's the LGBT-ish wrestling character that was handled the best.
  11. Wait...I'm not the only one who thought that?! https://frinkiac.com/meme/S06E24/1011660/m/IFNPLCBUSElTIElTIFdIQVQgSVQgRkVFTFMKIExJS0UgV0hFTiBET1ZFUyBDUlku
  12. For GiGi (Gigi?), I'm not sure what was worse: her blatant Marilyn Manson rip-off riff theme that never gets going, or her doing the Bronco Buster. It's the latter, no one needs to see that move come back. Then again, that theme is TERRIBLE. Like I thought it was bad when Impact lost the Marilyn Manson Decay theme and replaced it with something vaguely simliar. But this is just blatant.
  13. Wait, he did that in MLW, too?! I remember him doing it in TNA. Did not know that this was his third company! I actually thought she looked genuinely dangerous tonight...but not in a good way. That standing moonsault where she landed on her own head and they seemed to rush the ending out of it was scary. Then when Hayter lariated her, I honestly thought she was unconscious from the aforementioned moonsault...
  14. I always remember in his book, Chris Kanyon pitched the idea of coming back as a normal wrestler who just happened to be gay and between that pitch and his eventual return, it was rewritten to him coming out wearing makeup and singing Boy George. So, no, WWE probably should leave the LGBT characters alone, since many of the same people are still somehow involved in creative all these years later.
  15. Don’t tease me with a Billy Jack gimmick and not deliver: “I just go berserk!”
