  1. I mean, that final year or so of Austin's career probably burnt the final two to three years of his career away so... perhaps have him talk to someone else. I don't need Bryan taking 10 straight german suplexes in a tv match.
  2. My initial reaction was "Booker over HHH easy" but, with the benefit of hindsight... HBK shoulda won the title at Wrestlemania XX.
  3. Raw Is Empowering Women - 3/12/2018

    All of you are thinking too hard as to who else they could use if not Moolah. It should be named after Stephanie McMahon. It is totally something she would kayfabe do and either a heel would get easy heat thanking trophy Steph all the time, or a face would get great heat smashing the darn thing.
  4. RAW - 3/5/2018 - Sing Us A Song, You're The Piano Man

    I'm not much of a Nia fan either, but I think it is the time to pull the trigger on her as it feels like a legit "now or never" deal. She's this big beast yet hasn't won the belt and seems to always lose the big match, at some point you either take your shot with her or risk her being damaged in a Bray kinda way. Timing it for Mania is... unfortunate, and I don't think it is ultimately gonna work, but it's probably the right move to make.
  5. What are you reading?

    I finished up A Voyage to Arcturus earlier today and yeah, it's definitely good stuff. It really leans heavier and heavier towards its philosophical notions as it goes on but they are so fascinatingly constructed that it feels like doing anything else would have been an error. I'd say more than of a particular genre (I mean, it is clearly sci-fi/fantasy) it is a novel of ideas, the kind that aren't thrown your way all that often. I'll definitely chuck Devil's Tor onto my to-read list, which probably means I'll get to it around 2025 or so >_>
  6. Game Deals and Subscriptions 2017

    You know... if we go from 6 free games a month to 2 they'd better adjust the price or something >_>

    That kind of Challengers show likely wouldn't draw much on its own, but if it allows the ppvs and "normal" FS1 cards to be a bit more packed in terms of legit fighters and known names it would likely be a fair trade. It also allows another level to better separate the wheat from the chaff, giving them a better idea who to invest in and who is less likely to pan out. The thing you'd lose from TUF is hyping up the eventual coaches battle, but I think that has lost much of its effectiveness by now regardless.

    This is a very salient point. Back when UFC started its hot streak with TUF those cards were relatively stacked due to their being so much less of them. It gave them a better opportunity to sell a number of fighters at the same time as long as they had at least one marketable fight already in play. I'm pretty sure that Liddell/Couture II ppv that piggybacked off of TUF 1 was many peoples introduction to GSP, there was a second title fight on the card that ended up being a rather memorable one for Hughes, etc. Of course now I don't think you could pay me enough to sit through an entire season of TUF...
  9. What are you reading?

    I've been picking away at A Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay after some people elsewhere were talking it up as a personal favorite of theirs. It is a very unusual book, technically it would be sci-fi yet at the halfway point I'd say it is primarily concerned with various philosophical examinations and viewpoints. As it is from 1920 the science bits lean towards the fantastic, really the whole thing is very creative and fantastical when it comes to the planet and various creatures that inhabit it. Also if there is body horror then this would be its more curious cousin.
  10. 2018 Non-Event General MMA Talk Thread

    I would say less try harder and just try something, anything different. The approach they've taken for the last few years really hasn't produced anything and like... they've got over 200 fighters under contract I believe. Even by dumb luck a few of those should connect but it seems like since TUF has gone cold they are kinda frozen and unsure what to actually do other that heavily focus on pretty people and hey, that produced interest and moderate results! It being hard doesn't mean you should just shrug your shoulders and hope something falls into your lap, if success is unlikely you put as many eggs in as many different baskets as possible.

    UFC can't just snap their fingers and make someone a star, but I think it is safe to say that they could be trying a lot more than they are and have been for years now to do so. For a company with shows on broadcast tv, worth a few billion, run now by a talent agency and with several shows in recent years that drew tons of attention due to Conor and Rousey you really could not have gotten less in terms of star making out of the whole thing if you tried. Part of it is due to the fact that it ain't scripted and people lose but hell, that ain't an excuse to not even try and there is little evidence that they are. I'm pretty sure Dana has trashed more champs in recent years than he's propped up...


    Oh no @ Jarek 1:20 getting a WWE tryout. He seems to be a solid magician but as a wrestler he's... a solid magician.

    I feel kinda bad for Gulak, he sure seems to be stuck working a lot harder for a much smaller reaction.
  15. So Rockhold is saying that he may be moving up a weight class in the immediate future, and Romero has to lose three and a half pounds within a couple hours or else I assume even if he wins the fight he can't win the interim interim title (I know it's not really the interim x2 title). Perhaps middleweight just is destined to not have a champion.
