What kind of insane daddy issues must a woman have to date Jerry Lawler?

The only guy JBL puts over is Barrett. Cole says what they tell him to say. And I don't know what Lawler fucking does.

The most notable things Lawler had done in the last 10 years:

1. Match against Cole at WM.

2. Heart attack on Raw.

3. Anal bleeding.

Give credit where credit is due: the amazing TLC match with Miz.

Or insane financial issues. I get the feeling that dating Jerry Lawler is a good way to alleviate all of your financial worries.

Well, in that case, you think he'd be interested in me?

Konnor at least fits the part reasonably. Viktor looks like he's cosplaying or something, though. Totally inauthentic.

If their work was good, they could overcome it, though. Bill Eadie looked only somewhat less goofy in his costume than Tobias Fünke did in his "Discipline Daddy" getup, but his work was so good that it didn't matter in the end.

I've said it before, but the Ascension's problem is no Bram/Kenneth (and to a certain extent no Shaul Guerrero). They would have been better shoehorning Adrian Neville into the gimmick than Rick Victor.

I've only seen bits and pieces of the Ascension w/ Bram but with him the act had a big time feel.

In the 80s big bad asses in war paint was a archetype that showed up in b-movies/tv. That was a long time ago. The current incarnation of the Ascension only makes sense as an 80s homage but I've never seen anything about them that you would call tongue in cheek.

4. Never getting his pizza despite Domino's having a pizza tracker app.

Which might be a good thing considering the only good thing at Domino's these days are the Parmesan bites.

I like to think that was the result of Ryback/Henry/Show noticing him ordering on the backstage monitor, entering Lawler's # in the tracker and just intercepting the order at the door.

Is this a new repackaging for Wade Barrett?

He could stand to eat a few extra carbs, I'd give you that.

I feel bad saying this, but...

 

The Ascension need to go to CHIKARA where they belong. I don't think I've seen anything so bush-league, self-reverential, and goofy in a long time. For their sake, I hope they can make it work, but this shit doesn't play.

They already have that team there.

 

 

I didn't understand what you were saying until I just turned on the last Botchamania... I think I like these guys better.

The manager looks like he stepped out of the Sabotage video.

Do you mean Andy Kaufman persona Tony Clifton?

If so, yes

Don't you dare insult the Devastation Corporation. And CHIKARA definitely isn't "bush league", so The Ascension don't belong there. TNA, sure. CHIKARA? No.

Random thought.  The in-ring career of Shawn Michaels is the greatest character arc in the history of wrestling.

 

Young up-and-comer who betrays his friend for individual glory.  A selfish jerk who sees the light of being a do-gooder and in doing so achieves his boyhood dream.  Once at the top of the heap, becomes paranoid and reckless before being forced into retirement.  The big comeback from exile.  Holding off younger challengers who studied his blueprint.  Eventually makes peace with the man he betrayed at the very beginning.  Finally killed off by one of his greatest foes.

 

Its positively Dickensian (it even has a rival mocking him for the loss of his fortune.)  Its the Great American Novel of pro wrestling.

Well, considering Pip was Old English slang for an unwashed penis, I think it stands

I may or may not be making that up

Is Super Dragon permanently retired? I saw on profightdb that he hasn't had a match in nearly 2 years. He was one of my favorites back in the day and the ROH project made me think about him.

Pretty much. Seems like he always wants to return but is very injury prone. We could see him back for a few more matches but I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't.

PWG should book SD vs. Ahmed Johnson vs. Kevin Nash with the winner being the last one uninjured.
