  1. JANUARY 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I'll tackle this to see if my "the Rumble hasn't been any good in YEARS" theory holds true. 2017-No 2016-Eh, I lean towards yes because all their real plans were in the shitter. On the brightside, I saved $300 on a ticket for a show I would have hated. 2015-Um, Daniel Bryan. NO. 2014-Um, Daniel Bryan. NO. 2013-Cena was clearly winning, but Ryback potentially throwing a wrench in helped. Yes. 2012-No. Jericho. Feel like Jericho lost only because he said so assuredly that he was going to win. And he got the main event title shot anyway. And Sheamus got possibly one of the worst WM "main event" wins of all time as a result. 2011-No. The one year they could have booked a jobber to win it and they blew it. That place was ready to ERUPT and....no. The Royal Rumble would be a bigger deal if one year ANYBODY else won it. And that was their best chance. 2010-Yes. That's how you book a surprise return. 2009-Absolutely don't remember anything aside from Santino setting the record. I default. 2008-I stand corrected. THIS is how you book a surprise return. Even his haters couldn't help but either cheer him or stay silent. 2007-Yes 2006-Yes, but that was a FUCKING HORRIBLE WAY to do it. 2005-Yes, but it didn't matter. Both guys were getting title shots and winning. It was a moot point. And Vince tore both his quads over it. I go 7-5-1 surprisingly. Even then, it would take effort for me to show any emotion over three of those. And absolutely ZERO of those got me excited over WrestleMania. And it's a super weak 1-3 getting ready for this year's. Yet here I am, waiting for the damn show like shit is gonna change...

    I'm actually fine with it being off. I think the story was that Vince was certain this was the angle that was going to pop a big number. And it only did like a small tick upwards. And Nitro still killed them. And then USA got pissed over the whole thing so they ended up backpedaling. Probably the same reason Nexus wasn't on. Pissed off the people paying the bills.

    The one angle not the list that should have been was the Nexus invasion. Probably the last WWE moment that felt truly dangerous and off the rails. Of course, then the sponsors had to go and get pissed off over its non-PG-ness.
  4. 2017-18 NBA: FIRST HALF

    Thank you Poppovich to making this a "eh, who gives a shit" game. Lakers win a game they had no business winning and are suddenly on a 3 game win streak.
  5. 2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    Been laid up since Friday and took advantage of the PS sale and bought Firewatch and The Witness. I was warned Firewatch was pretty short, but since I have no since of direction and got lost way too much even with a map, I feel l got my money's worth. It was weird how honest and real the female dialogue was and how phony and fake the male's sounded. I really felt like I was hearing from an actual person through some of it. Would not have been worth full price, but definitely worth the $8. I bought The Witness Sunday and I have had a love-hate with it. It's fun at times and fucking frustrating as shit at times to the point where I've said "fuck this" at least once a day. I've been about ready to give up on it because I was stuck for hours looking for a missing piece of the puzzle....and the answer was there in my face the whole damn time. And that was my breakthrough. And I totally get it. Now I LOVE this game. It's $10 I think for another week. Absolute no brainer.

    I'm not sure I follow this. Shouldn't Rusev be demanding that Lana not take any bumps at all? He should be encouraging an asskicker, not telling someone what to do while they are getting their ass kicked...
  7. WWE NETWORK GENERAL DISCUSSION THREAD

    Ha, I've been going through 82 this weekend and noticed the same thing. Watts: "It's pronounced DUH-gan, and if you don't say it right, he'll LET YOU KNOW!" Watts proceeds to then call him DOO-gan for the next three years. What blew my mind in this was listening to Watts talk about various amateur college wrestlers and at one point he brought up what a star he thought a guy named John Tenta would someday be. IN 1982!

    "Keith Lee took a bump so hard, I swear I felt the earth SHAKE!"

    "It may have felt like a 5.0 to others, but it was more like a 6.0 to me."
  10. JANUARY 2018 WRESTLING PHOTO THREAD

    I think Richard Dawson did it.
  11. JANUARY 2018 WRESTLING PHOTO THREAD

    I swear, I stared at that picture for a good minute wondering why they stuck a cutout of Fake Diesel in there before I realized that was the real one.
  12. DVDVR 2 OFF: Royal Rumble 1999

    Foley took some swipes at Rock on the Mat DVD commentary too so he clearly wasn't happy at the time. I don't buy the "Rock lost control" excuse at all. As much as this match is vilified (and rightfully so), Foley was once handcuffed and took 11 chair shots to the head against Shane Douglas in ECW at CyberSlam 96. This angle was clearly a copy of it and I think Mick wanted to top it. Foley would have been pissed if the match ended after a fifth chair shot. Him saying that was the plan feels like revisionist history.
  13. [NXT] DECEMBER 2017 DISCUSSION

    That frog splash would have made Art Barr say "Goddamn!" Loved the four way. I knew who won, but had no idea how it happened, which made the finish that much more dramatic since I assumed someone else was taking the pin. I think Killian's career would have been made if he had six more inches on his leap. That was an amazing table spot though.
  14. DECEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I think the charm of Elizabeth was that she was so uncomfortable doing anything that that made her even more attractive. Your average guy at a show would see how Savage treated her and would think they had a chance to make her happy. Guys look at Lana, know she's with Rusev, and hesitate to even dream about her in fear Rusev would randomly kill them in the middle of it.
  15. DECEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    Oh give me a break. Nobody's jumping on this bandwagon. This is pretty much like Coca-Cola deciding "Hey, people aren't drinking soda as much, let's get rid of the old Coke and try New Coke again!" On the bright side, if Vince is too busy failing with football again, maybe RAWs and Smackdowns will get better.
