I like that the Daniel Bryan chick was a knock off Kate Micucci.

Watch it, man! She's a scientist!

That cast list is insane. Adam Rifkin, Seth Green, it also says Christopher Daniels, Kazarian, JTG, and Shad are in it, though I didn't see them.

 

Daniels and Kaz are surrounding Josh Peck (of Drake and Josh fame) during the "We fucking hate Triple H!" scene.

Dustin/Ricky vs. The Enforcers is pretty much the best. Zbysco and Arn screaming "HE'S JUST A MAN!" during their panic attack at the beginning of the match is one of my favorite things in wrestling history.

Was Larry Zybysko ever actually any good?  All I've seen of his work are a few highly unimpressive matches here and there on old WCW shows.

 

He was good enough for you to choose one of his catchphrases for your screen name apparently...

When I met Larry at Fan Axxes during WM 30 I shook his hand and said, "the human game of chess". He laughed and then repeated it in his gimmick voice. So awesome. I also asked him to sign the HOF section of the program, to which he looked for Bret Hart class and signed over it. Was there heat between Bret and Larry?

Kevin Nash is wrestling in Toronto (well, Mississauga) this Sunday for Destiny Wrestling at Don Kolov Arena (at Santino's Battlearts Gym) He teaming with Randy Reign (who just had an NXT tryout at the Arnold Classic show) against Cody Deaner & RJ City...should be fun, The whole show actually looks pretty great.

He still needs a lot of seasoning. He'll probably finish out the year in New Japan and then he could and should sign with NXT. He's so lanky and a bit awkward physically. I think working in an extremely physical style such as New Japan's is going to do him a lot of good.

Just a little piece I wrote elsewhere re: Wrestling Isn't Wrestling

 

The message is so appropriate right now

The story always goes on. Even if we don’t like the story right now in this moment, it’s gonna go on. It will eventually get better because that’s how this pro-wrestling thing works. Sure they’ll stick with shit that doesn’t work (Triple H 2000-2010) but there’s other shit that does work and once they’re done with the shit that doesn’t work, odds are they’ll be more good shit. Using Triple H’s career as a whole there are a ton of entertaining years of his career and there are a few really bad years. Some of the stuff that looks bad, looks a little better now that we know the ending of the story arc. In the end some of us may not like the idea of Roman Reigns Main Eventer and some of us do, but guess what the story’s gonna go on. Roman Reigns story will end way before our ability to watch WWE and/or pro-wrestling will. No one is bigger and lasts longer than wrestling. Not Vince McMahon, not Bonnie Hammer, not Ted Turner, not Paul Heyman, not Daniel Bryan, not Roman Reigns, not CM Punk, not me, not you, no one. Wrestling will go on long after we’re all dead and buried because it is so real it’s not real.

Warning to anyone who was looking forward to reading the C.M. Punk-written story in tomorrow's Strange Sports Stories #1: It's not in this issue. DC pulled a bait and switch.

I loved that Regal feud.  

 

Not sure which one was better Regal-Zybisco or the Cody-Booker T one from a few years back.

As of November, when i last spoke to him, Cody's interest in WWE is tepid at best. I think there are some serious reservations about what that lifestyle did to his dad...

HHH had a "ton of entertaining years"? That's news to me. Two or three tops.

If you've got a job in New Japan, why would you ever want to work the schedule WWE has, aside from homesickness? I understand why Albert came back with his wife having a kid and all. I get why KENTA would leave, because NOAH wasn't doing shit and it's a chance to go to a new country. Devitt... I don't get that at all. If Cody has a chance to be the next 'Murican Hoss in Japan he should run with it.

Yeah, but Devitt could probably just go back to New Japan if his run with the WWE doesn't work out. And I'd guess he's happy being in a place where he can clearly communicate with most people.

 

I'm watching the NJ Cup Finals and just finished watching Cody Hall's match. I was pleasantly surprised. He looked lost in between some spots, and maybe he should stop doing a pose before every big move he's gonna hit, but it was fun. Loved the announcers going bonkers for the rolling lariat. Credit to Honma also, for being awesome and selling it like a champ.

That's better than the God awful listing posted last week. I would've liked to see one of the Dutch matches and certainly something with Bock make the cut but you've got the Bret stuff, some Memphis, and his venture into mutant territory. Too WWE centric but what were we to expect?

Yeah, but goddamn... Jerry vs. Jim Powers, and Al Jackson? How many other high-profile legends get jobber matches on their discs?

I'm guessing/hoping those are "Lawler does commentary while wrestling" matches.

Jackson's offense consists of punches and a missile dropkick.  Jobber or not, that ought to earn him a slot in March Madness.

There have been a lot of jobber matches included lately, especially on Warrior's. The newer sets are more about rarities than actual best-of's.

I like Cody Hall for the same reason I like Baron Corbin: they're big guys who might be green but have big futures if they play their cards right. Hall vs Corbin at Wrestlemania 37! Book it!

Cody has a LONG way to go, I respect Scott for wanting an old school touring of the continents education for Cody rather than giving him straight up to NXT. Corbin on the other hand has a crazy presence on NXT and massive potential, one of my favorites to watch currently.

 

 

oh and this -

Well that only makes sense in his case. 

 

EDIT: That trailer, with all the fake names... had to watch it twice.

 

"EL CAPONE"

"FAT MISTERIO, JR."

"HIJO DEL JOHN CENA"

"MISSING PERSON FROM 14 YEARS AGO"

 

They should have shown Ivelisse when they did "COMPETENT DIVA" though.
