DECEMBER 2015 WRESTLING - Try 2

Recommended Posts

TBS was on channel 17 for most American cable systems, as the original WTBS was on Channel 17 in Atlanta, and most cable companies followed that suit.

For me TBS was on 17, TNT was in the 15-18 range (but obviously not 17)and USA was on the 20-22 range if I remember correctly. Then TBS and TNT went to 38 and 39 respectively and USA went to 40.

Actually come to think of it TNT I think was on like Channel 5 in my area for some reason.

USA 24, TBS 41, TNT 42. Been that way at least since 1990 in my area even with different companies coming through.

Is this the new hivemind, that Seth Rollins sucks now?  I missed that memo, apparently.

 

I don't know about that, there's a couple people out there who think he's overrated or whatever but I completely disagree. He's one of the best five workers on the entire roster. Cena is a great wrestler but he was horrendous in a couple of those matches with Rollins and Seth carried the load. The pace and execution..  it was like watching a figure skater kill it at the Olympics.

 

Maybe some people hate his brand of offense but nobody does it better. He's a machine.

TBS has always been 19 here, for whatever reason.

I looked through the last few pages and didn't see this linked.  NYT article on wrestlers moving into acting, focusing on Cena in Sisters.

 

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/27/movies/pro-wrestlers-put-a-headlock-on-hollywood.html?ref=movies&_r=1

 

Money quote from Tina Fey: “Wrestling was always campy, but I definitely think that Dwayne Johnson broke out of that, and no one really thinks of him as just a wrestler anymore. John is on the same path if he wants to be.”  Although Cena says in the next paragraph that he'd never want to leave wrestling.

EDIT: Well I tried to help Ryan out but Dailymotion is being insufferable so

 

Now something horribly depressing yet awesome that I thought of watching Smackdown en Espanol with the sound off just now... you know what the best tag team that never was is?

 

Eddy and Owen

 

THINK OF THE POSSIBILITIES. Probably the best rudo team ever. 

 

EDIT II: If that thought makes you sad, watch Ryan's video. Japan, never stop being awesome.

Thanks. I used to just be sad that the Eddie/Jericho team didn't last longer. Now I'm sad Eddie and Owen never teamed up, too.

Wings was Owen and Pillman.

 

(Who despite teaming in WCW a total of four times were ranked #2 in the PWI Weekly tag team rankings.  Seriously!)

 

Oh, and it was '91.   Benoit didn't come in to WCW until '92.

Is there a reason you/someone wants to find information on a now adult fan that attended multiple PPVs and was on-screen in the 90s? Without context this is pretty odd.

If there's a better way than saving ones sanity from holiday boredom than either singing Bob Dylan songs in the key of Dusty or Dusty promos in the key of Dylan I don't know it.

How did he, a teenager, afford multiple shows across multiple states? That's an interesting question.

Only reason I care is because I remember seeing him on tv back in the day and it was always a "hey didn't I see that kid before" thing.

That article was either written by a 6th grader or by someone with a 6th grade education. I knew I was in for it once the writer tried to imply that political correctness was ruining wrestling.

Yeah I remember seeing him on one of the WCW shows CLEARLY mugging/turning it up for the camera. Good seats all the time.

If anything, I'm tired of the segment of wrestling fans who seem intent on "running off" anyone with a different viewpoint.

 

In that regard, those fans have been very successful.

That's pretty much our whole culture at this point though.

It's insular geek culture. The audience's shift from rednecks to nerds is the real overarching story of modern pro wrestling.
