  1. Who here has a Wall Street Journal subscription so we can all read about Vince paying a paralegal to cover up their affair?
  2. It was time for a new thread. I am sure at some point then new version of the Network won't suck but I am also stupid
  3. The road to WrestleMania continues with the Elimination Chamber. I think one of the Elimination Chamber matches will decide who challenges the Fiend for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania XXXVI. For the past two years, the Men's Elimination Chamber participants wrestle a Gauntlet match with Seth Rollins going an hour in 2018 and Kofi Kingston last year. I REALLY REALLY want Daniel Bryan to be the third. 60+ minutes of Daniel Bryan please and thank you.
  4. Since I don't wanna have to wade through the old thread. This will open maybe when the show ends. Maybe Goldberg will be done walking to the ring by then.
  5. Batista and the original NWO (Hogan, Hall and Nash) have been announced as this year’s headliners EDIT - okay they are including Waltman with the group too
  6. I am petty sure the show won't be over at midnight but I know I wont be awake and honestly none of the rest of you should be either.
  7. Spyware reports The (original) Hart Foundation is going in. Which would make Bret and Jimmy the second and third two time inductees.

  9. Yeah - considering the other thread is like 14 pages long already this will be the post show discussion. And yet again I am being optimistic that the show is over by 11 pm EDIT Yup - considering the men's match clearly isn't starting till 10:30 at the earliest, I am pushing this back
  10. Hey - the WWE actually has 4 weeks to promote a show! TLC - December 16 - San Jose, CA Braun Strowman vs. Baron Corbin - TLC Match - If Braun wins, he faces Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble and Corbin will "lose all his power" Ladder Match for the IC Title: Seth Rollins (C) vs. Dean Ambrose RAW Women's Title: Ronda Rousey (C) vs. Nia Jax Finals of Mixed Match Challenge - Winners get #30 in the Rumble - Carmella/R Truth vs. Alicia Fox/Jinder Mahal WWE Championship: The New Daniel Bryan (C) vs. AJ Styles Triple Threat TLC Match for the Smackdown Women's Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte vs. Asuka Triple Threat Tag Match for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship: The Bar (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Usos For the WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Buddy Murphy (C) vs. Cedric Alexander Chairs Match: Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio Tables Match: Ruby Riott vs. Natalya Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre Ladder/Guitar Match: Bobby Lashley vs. Elias
  11. So, my new project is to watch all the 'B'-level pay-per-views, starting with the first In Your House. I'm not gonna do long match reviews or anything, but will share my thoughts as I go along, and I invite others to do the same. I had the first In Your House on video when I was a kid, and watched (and loved) the shit out of it. This is the first time I'd watched it in years though, so I was interested to see how it held up. Bret Hart Vs Hakushi: This had always been one of my favourite matches, and I always thought of it as a real classic. Unfortunately, upon rewatching it, it seems I was overrating it a whole lot. It's still a good match, but isn't really anything special. There are a couple of awkward moments between the two in the early going, and Shinzaki seemed to have a bit of a Muta-thing going on, where he could appear to just be going through the motions for stretches, punctuated by bursts of exciting offence. The finishing stretch is nice though. Razor Ramon Vs Jeff Jarrett and The Roadie: This was the debut of Savio Vega. It always made me sad how Aldo Montoya rushes down to help Razor at the end, but is just beaten down and forgotten about. The match itself is a solid, logical handicap match. Jarrett and Roadie were a good act, I thought. Mabel Vs Adam Bomb: KOTR qualifier, and just a squash really, though Bomb shows some decent agility. Owen Hart and Yokozuna Vs The Smoking Gunns: Decent for a short match. Jerry Lawler Vs Bret Hart: I think Bret and Lawler had good chemistry, but never really got the chance to work a great match with each other, mostly because Lawler was never portrayed as being on Hart's level, or a real physical threat to him. For instance, Bret pops right up from a Lawler piledriver here like he's Road Warrior Hawk. Hakushi gets involved, and the ref surely sees him interfere. Bad timing there. This was good for what it was. Diesel Vs Sid: The much-maligned Sid/Diesel feud. This wasn't terrible actually. Just boring, but not really offensive. DQ to set up the lumberjack match at the next ppv (and also the KOTR main event). Diesel cuts a decent promo before the match about his mother passing away (the show was on mother's day), which actually makes him sympathetic for a minute. Match of the night: Bret/Hakushi, which I'd have at about 3 1/4 stars. Show rating: 3 stars. Nothing outright sucked, but there was really nothing memorable about the show at all. To be fair, most shows they put on these days smoke this for in-ring action (though not booking!). Not sure why I loved this so much at the time. Probably because as a kid I didn't get to see all that many ppvs, and this, as a new concept, at least felt fresh at the time.

  13. I am being told that Brock Lesnar is leaving the WWE for UFC again, which means that's a good time for Lashley to step in and take the reigns.
  14. Since the other thread is already like 18 pages - new thread for after the show. Of course - I am sure the show will go to like midnight now
  15. Man even though it seems soon, it is still 6 months away. Anyway Announced so far Brock Lesnar vs. Kane vs. Braun Strowman - Universal Title Men's Royal Rumble Match - Elias is 1st person officially entered Women's Royal Rumble Match - Naomi is 1st SDL women in* * - the WWE website reads weird since they made sure to say 1st Smackdown woman... but there is no one else listed who would officially be in it from RAW
  16. This is will the after show thread since the other thread is already 10 pages deep. Hopefully the board won't dick me over.
  17. The two cell matches are now official Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon
  18. PTBN is doing a top one hundred WWE wrestlers list and they are taking nominations. Who would be your snap top five were you putting together a list for this?
  19. So this story has been blowing up this weekend. You have the AMA by Justin Roberts. You have the cryptic tweets by Mauro Ranallo. Dave Meltzer saying JBL is tight with Vince and Vince basically approves and encourages JBL's behavior to weed out guys who can't take the humiliation, something Roberts corroborates, unless you hate Roberts. And you have JBL attempting to defend himself with his own tweets, saying he never stole Roberts' passport but then claimed Roberts is an idiot and that the whole crew hated him. JBL's history of being a terror behind the scenes is pretty well documented at this point. So now that WWE is promoting the whole Be a Star thing...when does this no longer become tolerated? And doesn't Vince McMahon's complicity make him equally at fault? I don't think you can be partially intolerant toward this behavior. I have no idea if this is true, but Jonathan Coachman just quit his WWE coverage gig with ESPN. He's come out in defense of WWE, but is it merely just a coincidence that he's stopped this when all this is blowing up? But then again, doesn't ESPN have a habit of soft-balling certain sports they cover like this when stories like this blow up? EDIT: Here's Coach's tweet from earlier today.
  20. Figured I'd start this since I've been trying to watch stuff from both of these shows. Chime in with what you've seen! Superstars usually goes up pretty quick on the Network while Main Event is a few weeks behind but is easy to find elsewhere... WWE Main Event 12/29 #170 Jack Swagger vs. Stardust Swagger had some nice offense before the commercial break. The big spot when they come back is Swagger missing a corner charge and taking a massive bump over the top rope to the floor. Immediately made me sit up and pay closer attention. Stardust hits a clothesline on the floor and massive superplex. There's some nice payback for Swagger when he hits a clothesline on the floor. Finishing sequence was really well done to the point that the crowd totally bought a Swagger Bomb as the finish and started chanting his name. Swagger won with the Patriot Lock after about 10 minutes + the break. Loved this match. Probably the best Stardust match I've seen in ages and they really managed to hook the crowd in. Would be interested in seeing what other people thought. WWE Superstars 1/1 #351 Jack Swagger and Mark Henry vs. The Ascension This is the debut as a team for Swagger and Henry. Swagger literally worked the entire match until the hot tag. Mark Henry cleaned house for about a minute and won with the World's Strongest Slam in 7 minutes. Main Event 1/6 #171 The Usos vs Social Outcasts (Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas) Shockingly fun little match here. Usos are over and they did a cool spot where they cut off the Outcasts victory lap with a double dive. Jimmy hit a dab showing that at least one person in WWE is aware of pop culture. They did a distraction roll up finish but it was countered and the Usos won. Superstars 1/8 #352 Jack Swagger vs Tyler Breeze They had a 10 minute match in about 3 minutes. Swagger posted himself and Breeze hit the Unprettier for the pin. It was good but too short. Main Event 1/13 #172 Jack Swagger & Mark Henry vs The Ascension They ran an angle to start the show where Mark Henry was cutting a promo about winning the Royal Rumble but the Ascension came out and attacked him. Swagger made the save to set up the tag match. This was an extended version of their previous encounter where Mark Henry actually got in the match before the finish. Pretty basic stuff by the Ascension getting the heat on Swagger. Henry got the hot tag, slammed some guys, Jack hit the Swagger Bomb and Henry hit the World’s Strongest Slam for the pin. The Ascension are just bland but the formula works because Swagger sold well and Henry kicked some ass. Superstars 1/15 #353 Jack Swagger vs Tyler Breeze Rematch from the previous week and they get more time. Nice little sequence at the start where Breeze does his pose on the ropes and shakes his foot at Swagger in disdain. Swagger beats him up, clotheslines him out and does Breeze's pose on the ropes to mock him. Basic story of the match is Breeze working Swagger's knee. Good near fall with Swagger countering the Unprettier but his knee gives out and Breeze hits his kick for two. Swagger Bomb and the Patriot Lock gets Swagger the win in 7 minutes + the break. Simple, fun, easy to watch match.
  21. Announced card so far Elimination Chamber for World Title: John Cena (C) vs. AJ Styles vs. Miz vs. Bray Wyatt vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dean Ambrose SDL Women's Title Match: Alexa Bliss (C) vs. Naomi Tag Team Turmoil for SDL Tag Titles: American Alpha (C) vs. The Ascension vs. Heath Slater/Rhyno vs. The Vaudevillains vs. Breezango vs. The Usos Natalya vs. Nikki Bella One would assume that the following is going to be added Dolph Ziggler vs. Apollo Crews Becky Lynch vs. Mickie James
  22. Hey man I can't believe that happened! Stupid predictable WWE! Fuck Randy Orton!
  23. This era of TV matches is something that doesn’t get talked about much so I tried to come up with a fun way to revisit some ‘classics’ and find some hidden gems on the Network. To start, I’m watching one match from each year of 2000-2007. To help narrow down the choices, I’m taking one person from the match and trying to find a match of theirs from the following year. I figured the easiest place to start was the Main Event of the first RAW of 2000… WWF RAW #345 - January 3rd, 2000 DX (X-Pac, Road Dogg & Mr. Ass) vs. The Rock - 3-on -1 You’re Fired Match The first RAW of 2000 is in Miami and The Rock is upset with how Foley was fired last week. He wants HHH but instead HHH puts Rock in a handicap match against DX. The Rock will be fired if he loses and if anyone interferes, they’re also fired. During the show, Triple H beats Big Show for the WWF Title. Triple H and Stephanie come out drinking champagne and sit on the stage to watch. He makes the match No Countout and No DQ just to stack the deck even more. The Rock gets off to a hot start before running into a big clothesline from Mr. Ass. The triple teaming begins on the outside. An ‘X-Pac Sucks!’ chants break out and Rock satisfies his people by crotching him against the ringpost. Most of this match plays out the same way as DX triple team Rock, he’ll make a brief comeback and immediately get cut off. Eventually Rock strings together a DDT, samoan drop and spinebuster on the three members of DX to take them all out. The crowd is going crazy as he drops the People’s Elbow! Billy Gunn pulls the referee out to break up the pin. Gunn hits a Jackhammer and they hold Rock down in the corner so X-Pac can hit the Bronco Buster on him. Road Dogg goes out to get a chair and gets attacked by Mick Foley out of the crowd. Foley hits everyone with chairshots, including Triple H, and quickly exits through the crowd. That leaves Mr. Ass to eat a Rock Bottom and get pinned in 9:16. RATING: B-. Perfectly fine ‘feel good’ Attitude-era style match with Rock being over huge in his hometown and Foley making a surprise return. Rock’s comebacks were all fiery. X-Pac was good on his side but the Outlaws added very little to the match. They should have been beating the hell out of The Rock but they were pretty weak. WWF RAW #441 - November 5th, 2001 The Rock vs. Chris Jericho (c) - WCW World Heavyweight Title Rock and Jericho are both on Team WWF heading into Survivor Series but they’ve been having all sorts of issues. Mr. McMahon wants them to beat the hell out of each other tonight and put their differences aside before Survivor Series. Jericho smacks Rock pretty damn hard in the face early on. The crowd seems to be split. They tease their finishers early on and there’s quite a bit of back and forth action. Jericho’s utilizing a lot of chops and Rock even does a couple of his own. Rock acts a bit heelish arguing with the ref and going to Jericho’s eyes. Jericho soon hits a DDT and strings together some offense to build momentum until Rock counters him. Jericho goes to the eyes but Rock comes back and gets Jericho in the Sharpshooter. Jericho fights his way to the ropes and it feels like we’re going into the finish. Rock hits the spinebuster and it’s time for the People’s Elbow. Everyone rises to their feet and … Jericho moves! He surprises Rock with a Rock Bottom of his own for a nearfall. The crowd is fully behind Rocky now and Jericho is starting to lose his cool. He throws Rock to the outside and puts him through the announce table with the Breakdown. Rock comes up bloody while Jericho goes back inside to remove the turnbuckle pad. He smashes Rock’s head on the exposed turnbuckle and punches the cut with some short shots. It wasn’t the best bladejob by Rock so maybe Jericho was trying to open it more? Jericho puts him in the Walls of Jericho which gives us the visual of a bloody Rock fighting his way to the ropes. He finally makes it and Jericho goes for the Walls again but gets cradled for the pin. Rock wins the WCW Title in 15:07. Jericho snaps after the match and nails Rock with the title belt and a couple chairshots. RATING: B+. Not quite a PPV level encounter between these two but they were working hard and it got pretty good as it went along. I certainly wasn’t expecting the blood. The crowd didn’t seem to commit to cheering either guy until Jericho denied them the satisfaction of seeing the People’s Elbow. The Rock sure loves his offense off reversals or irish whips! WWF Smackdown #141 - May 2nd, 2002 Chris Jericho vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan (c) - WWF Undisputed Title No DQ Match Mr. McMahon has stated that if Triple H will be fired if he lays a hand on Jericho in this match. The Undertaker cannot get involved due to an agreement between RAW and Smackdown that talent cannot appear on the opposition’s show. The Pittsburgh crowd is going nuts for Hogan from the start. Hogan overpowers Jericho in the opening moments of the match with Jericho bumping big for him. Jericho kicks the announce table in frustration and sells his foot! Hogan continues to roll until Jericho goes to eyes. In a great spot he grabs Hogan’s bandana and wipes his pits with it! Jericho is fantastic here as he’ll work over Hogan a bit, get cocky, allow Hogan to fire back and then cheat again to regain control. At one point he even pays tribute to Flair by getting slammed off the top and begging off in the corner. Jericho gets dirtier by choking Hogan with his wrist tape. The crowd is super behind Hogan and they tease the Hulk Up but Hogan just fires up normally. He hits a pair of elbow drops but misses a third big one. Jericho gets the bulldog and a lionsault. Does he get the pin? Of course not as Triple H comes out to distract him. Hogan fires back once again but Jericho ducks the big boot and hits a DDT for a great nearfall. Now Hogan finally hulks up and the crowd is going nuts. Big Boot! Legdrop? NO! Jericho counters it into the Walls of Jericho in another great sequence. Hogan fights to the ropes and Jericho flips his lid. He grabs a chair and nails Hogan in the back with it. Now Undertaker’s music hits, he doesn’t come out, but Jericho is distracted anyway and gets rolled up by Hogan at 10:19. RATING: A. This felt like an all-time great performance by Jericho given Hogan’s obvious limitations. He managed to bump and sell for him without looking like a clown. His taunting and cheating made him seem arrogant and not weak. The only negative with the match is the distraction finish. I also felt like Hogan stepped it up as much as he could once the match got going and he could sense how good it was. Share any memories of these matches or watch them on the Network and let me know what you think…
