  1. I mean, is it? He was the cult WWE Internet Champion 10 years ago. And the chants for him ruined the Rock's comeback. He was like THE WWE guy to get over with an indy gimmick. GCW at least realized they should go with it.
  2. I read an article with Norman Lear with him saying they purposely picked lighthearted episodes because the "world has enough problems." They would have never done the Bicycle Man show anyway, it was a two-parter. It was pretty obvious which Strokes episode it would be with Hart's Super Arnold costume. I thought the Facts of Life was okay. The surprise cameos were the only fun part about it, and even then it took me WAY too long to figure out who the last surprise was. Strokes did a lot more with what they had. Lithgow carrying Hart across the kitchen like he was an actual child was a highlight.
  3. Harden scored five points tonight. FIVE. On 1-10 shooting. I'll be honest, watching the Bucks destroy the Nets in the first half, I've watched the NBA long enough to know...Bucks were losing.
  4. I think my issue with Charlotte/Asuka matches is that one has earned her wins and the other gets hers handed to them. But hey, who wins more?
  5. Maybe if that's your proposed finish, come up with something better? If Jericho isn't going full Foley, maybe not book a Foley finish? It was a deflater of a finish, and it made the Inner Circle look like idiots. "NO! Don't throw Chris onto a mattress!!" AEW books better and feels more legit than WWE. They don't get passes when they are worse. Chris himself should have known how bad that was going to look.
  6. ECIII is in the hospital possibly for something serious...and the next two posts are random dick jokes... Come on, assholes...pay attention.
  7. I don't disagree with anything you say, but that's a shitty place to work at if your job ends because Vince just has a sudden change of heart. Random people were fired where I worked at last month because it was "required." Vince didn't look at any of the people who were let go today and really thought about it. It was just "Okay." And they were fired. That's not WWE either, that's life.
  8. "This is Awesome" ruins any good match and takes down a notch any great ones.
  9. I'm on the fence with you. I'm either dropping $10 for their four month special (with ads) or just saying F it and dropping it altogether. Which shows you how valuable WWE PPVs have gotten and how valueless streaming services are becoming, when even $2.50 a month (with a ton of non-wrestling stuff for free) doesn't seem like that great of a deal.
  10. Buff Bagwell in a Clinton mask. Because it was WCW.
  11. Says the woman who couldn't sell a serious bump for more than three seconds without adjusting her outfit.
  12. Collateral is one of the great movies that turned into the Hollywood happy ending at the end. The nightclub scene is one of the most intense action sequences ever with a shock payoff. And I've usually stopped watching the movie five minutes later because that's a more accurate ending there than the last thirty minutes.
  13. Pretty sure the follow-up to the MGK angle was telling him to fuck off since he no-sold the table-break and ran off. I do love how WWE pretty much fell into getting one of the hottest acts right now when you guys shit on Vince for being decades out of touch. Then he gets someone big that a lot of you have never heard of. And now you don't know what to do.
  14. Heenan joined WWF in 1984, Haku came in a year later and ironically had his first feud with Heenan's Big John Studd after he (as King Tonga) slammed Studd. He turned heel and joined Bobby in 1987.
  15. That and the electricity may or may not be on the entire game... OKC rightfully threw a shitfit when they were told to limit their electricity use and the Thunder got all systems go for a shit game...that THEY LOST. I'm told to use as little electricity as possible. But lighting up Chesapeake Arena for your team to get their ass kicked...that's PRIORITY.
  16. The "#1 Grossly Overbooked Moment" (and it's a cheat since I was there) was Jim Ross coming out on RAW in OKC announcing he was traded to Smackdown and saying goodbye. That leads to Edge coming out as the new RAW champ, announcing he will never defend the title on RAW and then gets the Edge-Heads to escort JR out. Then Batista comes out and murders Edge. Then CM Punk cashes in the briefcase on dead Edge and wins the title.
  17. Considering the WWE Network won't exist in the US next month, in your world, it would be the "Peacock" belt. And picturing R-Truth with a plume of feathers...that seems pretty likely.
  18. In retrospect, Scott Brooks deserves to go into the Hall of Fame for somehow getting Durant, Westbrook, and Harden all into the Finals at the same time. Any random two of those now I'm like "no chance." He somehow got three of the biggest pains-in-the-ass on the same page.
  19. Pretty sure since Slaughter came back to WWE with the GI Joe deal over since that's why he left in the first place. GI Joe took the WWF route...that person never existed...
  20. You'd think it'd almost have to at this point. It doesn't make any sense otherwise. Goldberg gets pivoted to Drew for no reason whatsoever, Bryan loses tonight so that Pearce gets the Rumble match because Roman has to wrestle SOMEBODY... It feels like Roman/Bryan is being saved. But yeah, watch it get blown off on the Feb show...
  21. In fairness, what's the last Mania season that had ANY real effort put into it? Rock/Cena?
  22. Says a lot when you'd trade someone who was one of the biggest talents in the game (stats only) for someone who hasn't been close to healthy for nearly four years. Also says a lot that OKC traded one franchise-crippling contract for another last season... If he ever gets a ring, he'll have to Dwight Howard himself.
  23. I'm cooking Thanksgiving by myself for the first time. I also learned Mashed Potato Bombs exist. Which I will make, and you should Google that, because if done right that sounds like the greatest goddamn thing ever...
  24. Russell Westbrook cares about one person...Russell Westbrook. His pad statting during his later OKC years tells you all you need to know. He wanted those triple double numbers more than any championship.
  25. I want to say yes. The Demo/Busters title change was really weird in that WWF took FOREVER to air it. It happened on October 2, and they sat on it until November 4 (Tully had already been fired by the time it aired.) There was an out where Demolition pinned the wrong man that the Apter mags made note of, but it was edited out of the actual match. I think if they got Tully & Arn to stay, the decision would have been reversed or not aired at all. Once Tully was axed, Andre & Haku did one TV taping as a team and then won the titles immediately after.
