  1. I thought Nese vs Cassidy smoked Eddie vs Takeshita, and I loved that match. But the evolution of Cassidy is my favorite thing in wrestling right now.
  2. As a prodigious enthusiast of scromiting, don't knock it til ya try it.
  3. Will bring a giant grown man with that haircut was insane.
  4. I'm so happy I decided to get this show. I'm getting over covid so I figured, "Fuck it. I'll order the show and watch some wrestling here sitting in my recliner." That show blew me away. Off the recliner! Out of nowhere that became one of my favorite shows in a long time.
  5. They did release a dvd with some of them.
  6. The best way to ID the racists and misogynists in online Trek Fandom on Twitter is the Sybok test. If someone is fine with Sybok as a shocking new sibling of Spock but hates that Burnham is a shocking new sibling of Spock is a bit of a tell.
  7. Dead and Co this weekend in Boulder were awesome, especially Saturday night.
  8. It wasn't exactly a hero's welcome. The crowd shots showed a lot of folks who weren't popping for the old leaf crushing maniac, and I heard a lot of boos amongst the cheers. I'm also pretty sure a lot of those folks have no idea about what's been happening and were just popping for " No Chance" as a living version of Waylon Flowers' Madam puppet croaked some shit into a mic.
  9. I asked Dory about this on an old Observer call in show back around 2005. He told me that "Hoss" was his actual nickname and that's why he didn't mind it.
  10. You have to actually leave to be fired. Lou just showed up every time he was fired and they didn't care. Until Vince Sr. died. Then It stuck more often than not.
  11. I'm a fan of O'Riley who hated him in ROH. He put it together in NXT and became one of my favs. The only thing I think he sucks at are strike exchanges. You know, The bullshit spots where two guys just take turns hitting each other in the ring or on the apron like a bad Popeye cartoon from the early 60's. His forearms there look soft which just adds to how dumb and contrived the spot is. Besides that, and the dumb rebound lariat, KOR is great AFAIK.
  12. Statlander vs. Red Velvet was fucking fire. Statlander dropping the stupid alien gimmick is the right call. She came off as a STAR on Rampage. And so did Velvet and The Baddies. The main event women's division stuff has been kinda boring while Jade, the Baddies, Stokely, and Statlander are stealing the show.
  13. As a fanatical DS9 fan, I loved the Section 31 stuff and I love MU Phillippa. She's fun.
  14. Today is my birthday and we had over some friends and the kids across the street over for the show and some grilling. The boys, my nephew included were in and out of the show. They loved the Women's title match, but when Cody revealed that bruise? All three of these 11-12 year old boys were transfixed. They know what wrestling is. I've taken them to house shows and a RAW. This was the first time they were captivated by the idea that " Oh shit. That guy is hurt for real and is still doing this crazy shit, and WON!" They were wincing every time Cody took a shot. And by the end Cody became one of their new favs. edit: Oh, when I explained to the kids what the polka dots were about, they started talking about how Cody is fighting through the injury because it's messed up to make fun of his Dad.
  15. I saw someone call him " Percody" and I guffawed.
  16. Holy shit, I LOVED the new SNW. Give me a shore leave/ diplomatic mission/ wacky accident Ep any day of the week. They knocked it out of the park.
  17. For this they canceled Legends?
  18. I love Letterkenny, but I had my doubts about "Shorsey". Holy shit. It's fucking amazing. I love it and the soundtrack is awesome. I'm finishing it tonight in one binge. Great stuff. Edit: I just finished it. "Shorsey" is one of the best shows out there and might be a candidate for best first season of a show in forever. It's just fantastic.
  19. I saw Top Gun in the theater when it came out with my late cousin Brian Scott, who was an Air Force pilot. He spent the whole movie making fun of and shitting on it. It's one of my favorite memories.
  20. Yeah, the Klingon stuff in S1 is rough. The new makeup looks a lot better in S2 when they let them have hair and beards, it's wild how much it helps.
  21. The reason the spore drive is never again mentioned is revealed at the end of Season 2.
  22. I'm not so sure they're breaking up RK-Bro just yet. They sell a TON of merchandise. I don't think they're gonna have Orton turn on Riddle and have them feud. Not yet.
  23. Anson Mount could carry a show on his shoulders and haircut, and it's so great that he doesn't have to. I love the supporting characters already after one episode. It does looks a little like there might be some ST Discovery "Here's the bridge crew who have no stories or developed characters " problems, but I'm ready to be proved wrong on that. Cause the first episode was really great. That's wild, since first episodes of Star Trek shows have never been great.
  24. Anson Mount's hair alone deserves an Emmy.
  25. Man, I cried tears during the Picard finale and the first ep of SNW. Honestly, I don't care about continuity in Star Trek because Star Trek has never cared about continuity in Star Trek. Trills had lumpy heads at first. Dates of future events can be changed. Ferengis were once "a threat" with energy whips. Did Quark and Rom ever once have an energy whip? Klingons used to be white guys in brown face and Romulans could only travel at impulse speeds. Picard this season hand waves away "ol' mama Picard" from that shitty TNG S1 ep where they're hallucinating by Picard saying he used to like to remember her as an old woman offering him tea. No one ever told Worf he stunk as Head of Security and can't open doors. There's not a set of sliding locked doors Worf can open, but he always tries. And they never once said, "Data keeps getting taken over by outside forces and he takes over the ship a lot. " How many chances does he get? Why does Jellico have a kid who still draws pics with crayons? Did Mrs. Jellico have a miracle baby or is Jellico on his third marriage with a problematically younger wife? Who cares? And how can you not have cried at the conclusion of the Q/ Picard story? It was clear since "Tapestry" that Q actually loved Picard, and this wrapped that up. Allison Pill leaving the show with the Borg babyface turn was tremendous. I loved it. I assume Rios is gone from next season as well and I'll miss them both. Star Trek evolves. Not being enslaved to minor continuity is why Trek continues to evolve. The new Trek show that really plays with continuity and a shared universe is Lower Decks. It's not only fucking hilarious and totally Trek, it scratches all the nostalgia itches without seeming like fan service. The deep references are so much fun and when it gets to serious adventure, it kills.
