  1. https://www.thewatchcartoononline.tv/anime/muscleman-english-subbed Fan-subs of the first 86 episodes. I always wondered how Mattel would've edited it to get it to make sense to an American audience cause the main toy-line villain doesn't show up for quite a while. Also, cause it's weird as shit and maybe not all that appropriate for children in the 80s. The sequel series Ultimate Muscle was officially dubbed into English. The voice work and dialogue is awful though.
  2. Jake Roberts is right there if you really want a mouthpiece for Abadon. I don't know if she's tall enough to help him put his jacket on though. Big Swole's problem is all the posturing. I think it throws both her and her opponent's timing off. You don't have to pose and dance after every strike. Baker's so much better post-injury cause she seems to be keeping the match in a box so she looks more effective than when she would slowly run the ropes with no urgency.
  3. Callihan doing Callis' dirty work wouldn't make any kind of sense though. I really don't think this IMPACT crossover is going to be all that extensive. It seems like its more about getting Callis over as a heel more than IMPACT as invaders. It's probably just an Omega appearance for use of IMPACT's Sting footage.
  4. You can get the direct MP3 off their RSS feeds. The Conrad podcasts and Jericho are on MegaPhone. Mooney's on Spreaker. So Google 'MegaPhone Arn RSS' and it should come up.
  5. I don't remember Jake Roberts being part of this crew.
  6. Cody Rhodes hasn't changed at all since day 1 of AEW. He used his wife and a low blow to beat his own brother who was already bleeding half to death. The lack of a live crowd treating him like a god has just exposed his heelish manner. People always complain about Brandi Rhodes' character when Allie's right there not making any kind of sense since her entire heel turn was said to be based on being sick of Cody being the face of the place and now she's in their entourage and Cody hasn't even acknowledged her presence. Is Scorpio Sky kicking doors down and telling people to reach for the sky a BTE thing? Like a robber bit? Chioda's almost as fat as Arn Anderson. Brodie Lee should've worn his Repo Man outfit when he stole the old TNT belt. Evil Uno slapped his thigh making a tag. Dork Odor looking like complete dorks losing with a 2 on 1 advantage and then with a 5 on 2 advantage they just let the Bucks sit on stage bragging to the camera instead of jumping on them. FTR's entire knee injury ruse was about jumping a 60-year old man who just had a bout with Bell's Palsy? And everyone was so upset with them that they let FTR walk away real slow. Page couldn't even bother to put his drink down to help a potentially crippled Ricky Morton. They've had Tully Blanchard just sitting in the stands looking like he's going to hand a bank teller a note for months instead of having him spit fire promos. Why don't they let people talk in this company? Shida got out one line before they threw to Archer abusing his elder. Tag Team Appreciation Night sucked. I wanted to know who TH2, Lucha Bros, and The Nightmare Sisters favorite tag teams were. Was Hardy fined for assaulting a referee? When Guevara came out later Hardy didn't go after him. Also, Posey's wearing a leather jacket in August in Florida. Does he have the cold chills? It might be the 'rona. The finish of Cassidy/Jericho was overbooked but the rest was what I expected. Jericho's best work is as a brawler. He's never been as athletic as he or internet nerds think he is.
  7. Also, the 90s happened. In the 80s they were running like 2-4 separate crews on any given week. The World Champ would lead the A-crew, the IC the B, the Tag Champs the C, and then some high school could buy a fundraiser and get a Killer Bees/Bolsheviks main. The 90s come around and syndication dies, PPV is the big revenue source and business is down so they've got just one crew usually running in the Northeast with the occasional Euro tour and they're letting guys do indies cause they don't have enough work for them.
  8. Cardona showed absolutely nothing. Same ol' WWE B-show filler Zack Ryder. Beaver Boys looked real good though. I think that's the first time I've seen them since they became DO-boys. With the mask, Silver looks like Reynolds' mini. He also looks like one of those Remco-style figures Cardona sells. Maybe he needs some long tights. Could live without the lame political segments. The MJF stuff feels like a warmed over EC3 gimmick from a few years ago. Also, why is Lee Johnson seemingly reluctantly working for MJF? Was Guevara covered in blood when he came out before the debate? Should've aired the Hardy thing after the debate to cover for why Guevara was under the ring since he just disappears out of the commercial break. Skeeavone no-selling Taz when he was trying to feed him comparing the Hardy/Guevara situation being the same as Taz/Allin. Matt Hardy deserved that ass-whipping. I think Sue stole that van. No plates. Also, that camera in the backseat. Main was good. I liked Allin mocking Mox by wearing the mask from when Moxley could still grow bangs.
  9. Pretty sure all of Retribution are women. This is like Vince just saw Spring Breakers cause Prichard mentioned Double J was in a movie. "This is great, pal. Put some girls in masks and let them wreck shit." "People will think it's a political thing like Antifa." "Auntie who?"
  10. That's not a vintage Cheetara. It's a new MOTU-style by Funko. Toy Biz made a lot of good WCW figures. They did not make a lot of good Bret Hart WCW figures. The ones with sunglasses look like Howard Stern. Bash At The Beach series probably the best one. He comes with a giant water cannon gimmick as you'd expect Bret Hart to have.
  11. I hope everybody trolls Okada and picks TNA stips. Okada: "Ladder match!" Wrestler #2: "I also want a ladder match but ladders are illegal and you have to climb the wires the belt is attached to in order to retrieve it." Wrestler #3: "I too want a ladder match but you have to hang the belt up in order to win and you first have to pin one of the other competitors in order to qualify to hang the belt and the man gets pinned will have to sit in a penalty box for like 90 seconds." Wrestler #4: "Man, fuck a ladder match. I want a battle royal but we all start on the floor and the last man in is eliminated then we have a regular over the top rope battle royal then the last two men have a regular one on one match."
  12. Jake Roberts turning towards Acher during War Whore's intro made me laugh. Following Kingston didn't do him any favors. Cardona didn't look any bigger to me than he did in WWE. It was called the land of the giants for a reason. Evil Uno mask teeth were straightened out. That Dork Order dental plan at work. Moxley saying he doesn't start fights when his first night in, he started two. The Lethal Lottery might mean something if random-ass tag matches weren't already the norm with the women. Is it taking place on FTR tag team appreciation night?
  13. I think the problem with Bret Hart figures is they give him too much hair.
  14. Ross is officially AEW's 'Senior Advisor' or something of that nature. AEW's supposed to be the "real sports" wrestling promotion but you've got some of the EVPs that want to ignore the rules so they can get their shit in. If the refs don't want to be criticized on the air then they should quit looking like morons on the air. If the wrestlers don't like being criticized on the air then they should quit blowing the old man off and explain to him why they're doing the things he's criticizing. Ross' biggest problem is he's too cognizant of his critics and he's too in his own head on the air. If the yak big, the yak big. Suckas gots to know. Also, it's fun how people go on about diversity but then when the ratings come up, it's all about the core demos.
  15. Alisha Edwards popped up backstage pre-pandemic. She wanted on Grace's Lethal Lockdown team and Grace said of course cause Alisha was a freak and then Alisha sang. It was...something. I do not want the return of the Aces or Eights. I want Gallows and Anderson to brother it up with the Swingman, daddy! They can back the Pack, jack! I hope the mystery man is Road Warrior Animal. EC3 is probably most likely though. I don't think there's been any tease but Chris Hero could be good. I hope Eddie Edwards turns heel though. They screwed him over by making him do a best of 5 series when he already won the trophy. Then they showed him getting booed and cheated in Qatar. Now he has to compete in a 4-way with a mystery man.
  16. Aldis can probably figure out some video editing software. He probably can't do any worse than the Homer with the star wipe quality production they already had.
  17. He's in IWGP United States Championship Match IV: The Voyage Home.
  18. IWGP United States Championship Match: The Motion Picture presented by New Japan Pro Wrestling A screenplay by BEN! Open wide with an establishing shot of a desert. An Ennio Morricone-style soundtrack plays throughout. A black SUV drives into the scene. Two black-suited dark shades-wearing men of Asian descent exit. "Get out gaijin dog!" one orders as he opens the back door. In the back sits the IWGP US Champion Jon Moxley blindfolded. The other suited man removes the blindfold and barks, "Time to fight!" "Bout time," Moxley coldly mutters as he headbutts the suited man. A NJPW ref arrives from seemingly out of nowhere and intervenes screaming "No no! Opponent over there!" Moxley's opponent [____] enters the scene. The two fight for about 15 minutes in the desert wasteland before Moxley hits the Death Rider, cause this is absolutely not taking place in the US where it would be called the Paradigm Shift, and gets the pin and retains the IWGP US Championship. He then attacks the other suited man and leaves him laying. Moxley enters the SUV and drives off. Same wide shot as open but now with the SUV driving off into the desert night kicking up dust. Roll credits.
  19. Kate Kane isn't even the most important character in the show. Batman's clothes rank higher than her. Why do you need Kryptonite to kill her since she's gotten clunked upside the head and knocked out and captured several times? Just hit her in the head some more. Or shoot her in the mouth. Or drown her. Or throw her off a great height. They should have Alice kill her off and take over her bar and turn it into a diner and when bootleg Tommy Lee Jones comes to arrest her, she tells him to kiss her grits. These TV people got some real temerity to keep pitching Batman shows that don't have Batman doing Batman stuff.
  20. Stadium Stampede was not cinematic. It was like a bunch of barely stitched together WWF Hardcore Title matches. My cinematic sports entertainment power rankings: 1. Scott Steiner/Josh Mathews vs. Joseph Park/Jeremy Borash 2. The Sting/Cheatum trilogy 3. The Final Deletion The Hardy stuff only works with Jeff, the guy everyone knows is shoot crazy, playing the straight man during all the madness. I haven't gotten around to WrestleMania or MITB.
  21. I'm so far behind there's still people in the crowd but I looked at the Slammiversary card and the selling point for the main event being someone recently fired from WWE debuting is the real "old school rules" match. Instead of saddling Moose with Dreamer they should just put him in the main and make it a KOTM match cause he's actually got a belt. Should probably put Mack in there too cause he's the only guy on the roster that knows the KOTM rules.
  22. The interview with the The Hulkster, The Warrior, and The Arriba Man is the best part. How could anyone hope to contend with the combined might of Warrior Wildness, Hulkamania, and Arriba Derci! Seriously, the best part of any Survivor Series are the crazy coked-up group pre-match interviews.
  23. It's too bad Tenta didn't get a uniform but it's fun that he looks like he's wearing an Earthquake-colored Tugboat outfit.
  24. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EbMXowHWAAEXhB8?format=jpg It was hand-sized.
  25. Bull Of The Woods Championship. Instead of a title belt they get a hilariously oversized cowboy boot and maybe a cowboy hat too. Like the TV title with 1 fall, 10-minute time limit matches but with each victory Tony Khan shoves a wad of money into the boot. Champion can cash out and take the money and run or choose to keep the title and let it ride for double the bonus money with the next defense and the bonus money continues to double with each defense. Champ retains on a draw but receives no cash bonus. If the champ loses then they lose the entire pot to the challenger as well.
