Could you not figure out a way to get the corona on a pole Mr. Russo? 

Corona inside a Corona on a pole

and no, it's not inside a steel Davey Richards

Apparently Vince is representing the XFL. I’m not sure how that’s major.

That Zoom conference where he spends the entirety of it doing absurd weights in the gym at Titan Towers and refusing to blink for the webcam is going to be something.

I currently own two. My eldest that passed away in 2016 made it to 19. They're not jerks. That's just hearsay.

Are you a cat? Because that's exactly what a cat would say.

I think early 20s.  Of course, if I had access to DVDVR when I was younger, I probably wouldn't have also disliked Fit Finlay, either!  Somehow I never realized just how violent his matches were early on.  I remember being so bummed when he came back with the blonde hair, because I never liked him when he was first there.  I will blame WCW TV for that one, because their announcers, even on the weekend shows, tended to talk about everything else that was going on during the squash matches, and Dusty (And I love Dusty's commentary) just kind of laughed and enjoyed them stiffing the hell out of each other, and no one really put over how violent it was.  I think JR -as much as I came to dislike his WWE over-the-top style over time- might have been more effective at getting over just how much Finlay and Regal were beating the hell out of each other.  I dunno.

 

I must be the outlier because I was digging the hell out of Finlay/Regal/Bunkhouse during that mid 90's time and I was in my pre-teens. Those Worldwide/Pro/Saturday Night matches were great. And Finlay was my guy in WCW/nWo Revenge. I also used to read this board (and CRZ's) as a teenager so I guess it makes sense.

Question: How many people actually subscribe to the WWE Network?  Isn't is one million or so?

Just curious.  Mark Henry predicted 200 million people would watch WM 36 and it'll become the most watched sporting event of all time.  Errr......

He said 200 Million people 'could' watch Wrestlemania. He didn't say it was likely.

The only thing I can see happening is people starved for something new. Outside of the NFL draft sports are a dead topic. Long live sports entertainment. 

I really want to hear that conference call, I predicted to my wife last night Vince would end up on it.

If it’s anything like the call with the governors he did in front of the press, it’ll be pretty dull. Go one by one, feign interest in their concerns, agree to get them everything they need, onto the next one.

Hahahaha, now I'm picturing that gif of Richards and Edwards with the superplex off the top into a suplex over the top rope to the outside only it's Davey vs Rona in my head. Good shit pal.

I assume the CDC hasn't cleared the use of Hayabusa masks as a public mouth covering during this disease season?

I was thinking of buying a Caristico mask. All the white cops would stand down if they saw a giant gold cross on my mask.

Davey is a EMT/Paramedic right? The perfect guy to work a match vs Pam Demic.

you can only wear a Sin Cara mask in public if you bring the mini trampoline along.

Who’s the best mask seller currently today anyway? I’ve never bought one before, but I’d always be tempted to buy one from Highspots. Never pulled the trigger because I was never going to convince my parents to buy a 100+ dollar mask I’d have no real use for.

Other CMLL guys that I can think of who have closed mouth masks: Templario, Volcano, Kraneo. Although it's possible that you'd need to go to Mexico (not easy at the moment) or know somebody in Mexico to pull off some of those mask purchases.

It's possible that the more obscure you get with a mask purchase, the better the odds of some random Hispanic family thinking you're actually Volcano walking through their town because CMLL is shut down. Especially if you're fat and wearing a Lucha mask.

Not sure if the Psycho Circus masks are closed mouth... also guessing Murder Clown is not a good mask to wear around casually right now.

I’d definitely go with the Templario mask. I’d get some suspiciously approving nods from heads of state.😉

Henry is just living up to his name, while staying in WWE's good graces.

Pandemico seems like the name of somebody who's gonna be working in Mexico next year. (Yes, I know that's not the top result for translating Pandemic into Spanish on Google Translate)

At the very least, Pandemico's mask that looks like a coronavirus cell should be a test of "too soon?"

Edit: and Pandemico's finisher is a submission move where he makes you touch your face.

Why buy one, when you can just make your own?

It's the DVDVR connection! Years later I ordered a Phil Schneider comp tape and was like "Why is Fit Finlay on this?", watched it after reading his write-up and was BLOWN away by it.  Sometimes you just need a nudge from DVDVR in the right direction!
