  1. MJF reminds me of a create-a-wrestler. Great talker, fine in the ring. How does one even begin to care about Joey Janela? Box him up and send him and Jericho's $750,000 car to New Japan for Tomohiro Ishii. Then business will pick up. And Janela looks like he was put on Earth to team with Juice Robinson. "How dare (generic blonde #3,152) cheat on (curtain jerker no one cares about) with (heel curtain jerker no one cares about)!"
  2. Hasn't Big Swole been a heel so far in the ring? Then they do a promo video on Dark where she comes off like a gigantic babyface.
  3. I found it crazy that I've car bombed a million cars, but as soon as someone starts doing it to me, I get pissy about it. I should've gotten up high and cut off his crap, but it was really tough - is he coming from the left, right, behind or is he coming from the front, knowing I can't counter him.
  4. Nah. I hate first-person shooters, and can't stand the way I'd wander around for 3 hours trying to find the exit of the mission in BL:2. Then I'd fall off the map and lose 200 million credits. When everyone said "Borderlands 3 is a lot like Borderlands 2," I decided to take a pass on it.
  5. ROH changes name of next PPV to "Tire Fire"
  6. Problem is, none of you know how really fucked up Mauro is. I don't. But if you watch that documentary on him, he basically looks like he's getting ready to come unglued at any moment, Whatever is wrong with him (I assume bipolar type 1) is tough to control even with medication. Meltzer says Mauro had hit a rough patch before the thing with Graves. He's spent months in psychiatric hospitals before. This isn't just a case of being "overly sensitive. This guy's got significant issues that he deals with on a daily basis and didn't need the spotlight of Graves' remarks put on him at a time where he's struggling in the first place.
  7. I got a guy on my friends list who still plays a lot of Anthem. Of course I picked him up through ME: Andromeda. Hard to imagine a BioWare fan boy after all this.
  8. I haven't watched NXT in ages, but I managed this week. That Angel/Lio match was very, very good. I had no idea who either were, but that was some restaurant-quality wrestling. Wouldn't look out of place in the middle of a NJPW card. God, that ladder bump was absolutely scary and kinda pointless. Seems like they could've gotten to the same conclusion without that suicidal drop. Jeff Hardy's watching on his cell phone while he drives drunk yelling "you go girl!"
  9. You're right. But the show has to have some kind of "teeth" to it to get anyone to watch. If that means Punk launches a tiny turd in the punchbowl, so be it, but it needs to appear not so tethered to the mothership. I gotta admit I don't care enough to have ever watched it, but is the UFC show on ESPN this rah-rah, or does it have some bite to it?
  10. So, the show is hilariously rah-rah, with the criticism muted (the worst reaction to Lana-Rusev-Lashley was "I don't like it"). Even insider boy Ryan Satin had two signings and nothing about Sin Cara asking for his release. Obviously everything is being filtered through WWE even if they say it isn't. It's bad awkward to have WWE employees (Renee Young, Booker T, Paige) run a show that's supposed to be independently covering its subject. So let's say Punk comes in and pipe bombs the place into pieces. Does WWE withdraw their cooperation and their employees' cooperation?
  11. Did the microwave turn its back on him when he really badly needed to heat up a Hot Pocket?
  12. They have this hardcore match that Meltzer just shits on, but this is professional wrestling, after all - what was real and what was fake? These guys are pros, they're bound to know some stunt guy who could make the match safer - I'm not saying they used stunt doubles, that's stupid, but maybe told them how to do the barbed wire spots with some kind of faked-up wire. I haven't seen many barbed wire matches (Funk-Sabu when Sabu tore his bicep off, practically) and every time someone went into the wire, there'd be a gang of people who'd cut them out with wire cutters. The AEW folk just kinda lifted the two out of that barbed wire net. If the doctor hadn't came down and stopped that nasty cut on Cody, there would've been much, much more blood in that match than an anything-goes hardcore lights-out match. It doesn't add up, and I wonder if Meltzer's taking of the whole thing as real isn't some weird work with AEW or some circle-the-wagons work on Meltzer..
  13. The next ROH live event is 12-13. which means she's making $2,000 to not do a dang thing, technically. If she worked a WWE schedule for $25,000 a year, that'd be a travesty. As it stands, she's overpaid. I'm watching this week's TV now (I guess) and I'm a whopping 51 and have been watching wrestling since I was 6-7. That ref bump in the match highlights between Kelly Klein and Angelina Love was positively the silliest thing I can recall seeing in a wrestling ring. You have to have enough pride as an organization for the ref to stand back up and say "OK, let's try it again." Please don't take this as sexist, honestly, but if those are two of the best you can snag,. would'nt it be better to have no women's wrestling at all? Or have we gotten to the place in pro wrestling where if you have pro wrestling, you have to have women's pro wrestling no matter how awful the women's wrestling is?
