I was only joking the other day when I brought up Halftime Heat coming back. That's awesome.

See how Michael Cole calls Seth Rollins' Enzuigiri a step-up Enzuigiri? That's wrong, isn't it? Rollins does a leaping Enzuigiri. A Step-up one is where you plant a foot on the hip like Eddy, or off the back of a leg catch like Pillman.

"Sometimes to convince Vince, you have to con Vince" - Jake Hager. Odd that they made a big deal of Swagger training at Bautista's gym, but Big Dave wasn't at the Bellator show. Especially since Chris Pratt was there, cornering the guy who's the trainer for that Veterans charity thing. Would have been nice to get a GotG cast reunion in the circular circle*.

*nb: The Cage in Bellator MMA is round, not Octagonal. But old school boxing writers loved to call the Boxing ring 'The squared circle'. Hence Bellator's cage is called the circular circle. By me and nobody else (so far).

Alcohol is a hell of a drug?

He can't hear you, he's trapped in a turned over port-a-john out behind his house. Don't ask.

Nobody on that roster drinks according to Meltzer so it can’t be that.

Not sure Jericho is the best guy to be telling someone to "lose the gut"

The "Kill Em All" tramp stamp already killed the mystique for me.

Yeah, I was meaning to ask what the hell was up with that. My guess is it's just kayfabe (as that is the default), or if Brock is just being a grumpy asshole (because that is also a default).

It was likely the setup to the "Brock doesn't want to stay and doesn't really care" angle that went on for a bit.

Most folks at the time (since it was reported on shortly after Mania) that it was Brock being Brock

So folks claimed it was because something happened in the match that Brock got pissy about

I think it ceases to be a tramp stamp when it says Kill 'Em All. It's not like Brock has a butterfly, a rose or some stupid tribal design above his ass.

Hahaha. He actually did the Oklahoma bit in WWF on Sunday Night Heat and nobody said a word until it happened in WCW. 

No, it was shat on then as well.

Eh I don’t recall as much outrage. JR himself certainly didn’t say a word about it.

The amount of outrage the WCW stuff got was way disproportionate to WWE who mercilessly mocked JR for a decades.

I don't think it's kayfabe because we're only getting this footage nearly a year later when it was all rumors at the time, probably leaked by Heyman if I had to guess who did the leaking. Brock being a grumpy asshole because Vince fucked up the booking and because the crowd shit on the match wouldn't surprise me at all.

Vince's "HEY ASSHOLE!" made me laugh though.

You know how back in the day, the PPV providers held all the power, and if your show went over the three hour window they'd either cut it off (WCW) or charge the company a huge fee to not cut it (UFC)? What did the PPV carriers have to say about RR19 going five hours? Other than 'thank god some people are still willing to pay us quadruple the price of a month of WWE network just to see one show once'.
