  1. Past hour
  2. Matt Riddle tweeted he has been pulled from this weekend's shows due to a mild arm infection
  3. Per Michael Silver (so take what you want from it) - the Cardinals are down to deciding between three players: Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams This does not rule out them trading the pick - especially when Gruden goes crazy
  4. People chanting "we want Flair" before and throughout the show. Booing like crazy for the "we called Ric and tried to make a deal but he wouldn't come" announcement. The attempt to put heat on Flair did not work at all with the Baltimore crowd, who was always pro Flair. Pretty much a "fuck this company" and "why are we at this awful show" vibe for the whole thing. Windham was barely a midcarder at the time so nobody bought him in the main event fighting over the world title. Everybody knew they were just putting the belt on Luger. Race running in to direct Luger to piledrive Windham got zero reaction from the puzzled crowd. Nobody gave a single fuck that Luger was apparently turning heel. The the second half of the main event shitshow, a mixed tag, went two minutes because man/woman physicality was not allowed by the state athletic commission. Overall, the feeling was that nothing they booked would have gotten any type of positive reaction because the company was such a massive heel that night that it cast a shadow over everything. Still, they did nothing to even try. You start the show with a "capture the flag" scaffold match and end with the shit sandwich I just described, you're lucky the people didn't burn the building down. They should have rebooked the card and had at least a four-man tournament, maybe putting Sting over to send the crowd home a little happier. But putting suddenly heel Luger over JTTS Barry Windham went over like a fart in church.
  5. Apparently, the split is less than amicable (at least on the Sanchez). According to Abel, despite Golovkin's potentially 100 million dollar with DAZN, Golovkin's team wanted him to be paid less and gave Sanchez a new training schedule. As for the search for Big Baby's replacement, the current leading candidates are Michael Hunter (who is really the only viable American heavyweight in Hearn's stable at the moment) and PBC fighter and former title challenger Andy Ruiz who just made his PBC debut this past Saturday stopping Alexander Dimitrenko.
  6. It is and it isn't. Whilst she was pretty much more attractive as "Everyone's Favourite Girlfriend" Jessie McKay, the first rule of Wrestling is Do something to differentiate yourself. And on that basis, her Iconic WWE look is arguably more valuable than the cute brunette #4/ Girl next door of your wildest dreams concept.
  7. Roger Craig isn't in the Hall of Fame so y'all can be quiet now
  8. The Devil You Know (or Devil You Know) with Jennifer Lawrence. It was shot in 2005 but released on demand in the summer of 2013. However, she isn't a lead really. If they waited until 2015, they would have had Lawrence and Rosamund Pike post-Gone Girl.
  9. But now we can have accessories, Like Goldust's wig and Elias' guitar
  10. I watched day 14 (April 23) of the CC. Thoughts: I haven't been watching the undercards, for the most part, but I wanted to see if Lee/Iwamoto vs Suwama/Okada built on the previous show's Lee/Suwama match. And it didn't. It was also super short, so I'm guessing they're still pretty beat up. I did get to see Iwamoto judo-flip Suwama, though. Yoshitatsu vs Hashimoto is actually a pretty good match. Maybe even a quite good match, but it’s really hard to get emotionally invested in either guy. They start with a lot of pretty good mat/chain wrestling, like they’re worried Redman is watching them and going to go back to England and be all like “lads they don’t know how to wrestle there, it’s all chops and clotheslines and very few drop toe holds or spinning wristlock escapes!” No one fucks up at all and Hash doesn’t look lost, so a real win in everyone’s books, even though the ending seems quite abrupt. Aoki vs Valetta: thanks to lostintube, I now know that when the wrestlers are brawling outside the ring, the announcer is saying “oki o tsuke kudasaI” or “watch your butts, fans!” So it’s delightful to realize that they say the same thing when Valetta is just coming to the ring. Like, “watch out, this mediocre Bruiser Brody clone is too crazy for us to control!” What if AJ didn’t make Valetta a Bruiser Brody clone but a Tiger Jeet Singh clone? I think I’d be down with him waving a sabre and spitting fire at people. Fuck yeah. Side note (to that side note): A chain is actually a pretty shitty wrestling weapon, because it doesn’t look like it hurts, but I bet it probably hurts. Though admittedly this chain seems very light and jingles a lot, like it’s made of tin or something. Or some other light metal. Fuck it, I’m not a metallurgist. This is … also pretty good? Valetta is perhaps learning how to grow into this very limited role he’s been given. Absolute best-case scenario is that he improves enough to kind of make room within the role for his own stuff, like how Doering is meant to be Hansen and still does a lot of Hansen stuff but has definitely become his own guy. But I’m not saying he’s there or even close to getting there. He is doing the right stuff in this role, though, like kicking at young boys and threatening the ref with a heavy chair beating, etc. He also shakes Aoki’s hand at the start, and looks over his shoulder to give the camera a greasy smile, which was a nice touch. Honestly, I think this was Aoki’s chance to do something, like take the chain himself and shit kick Valetta with it. Instead he just wrestling him, what a waste. Sai vs Okabayashi: Sai keeps threatening to superplex people out of the ring, and I gotta say that, on top of the fact that no one is going to take that bump (maybe PCO), shouldn’t it like actually be illegal? If hitting people with a chair is bad, why would I be allowed to throw them off the turnbuckle and into the audience? Anyway, this gets off to a quick start, and other than some very standard weird Sai posturing on the top rope, mostly stays brisk. Good match, but there’s not enough weight to it to be anything memorable. James vs Ishikawa: actually kinda similar to the previous match, in that it was good but they didn’t really put enough into it to make it next-level. Ishikawa is having a great CC, though. I think better than last year’s. It’d be hard not to just slap the triple crown on Ishikawa. He’s always good and he’s incredibly convincing as an unstoppable monster. Dylan James is only 27! If this dude sticks around he’ll be TC champ in a few years for sure. He’s the ideal foreigner: big, beefy, and capable of going 30 minutes if necessary. Though he was looking pretty beat up from that Okabayashi match. Whole show was solid without being great. Complete and Objective Match Rankings: [Ishikawa/Okabayashi might be overrated at this point. It was the first top-tier match of the tournament. I'm probably not going to go back and revisit them anytime soon, though]
  11. Now that I'm thinking about it, I think the correct answer is Priest Holmes. He was the best player in all of football for about 3 years.
  12. Not sure which video you're referring to, but the one from the South of Heaven video looks like a BC Rich Wave.
  13. If someone looks over my shoulder at shit they deserve to see a bug lady puking in someone's mouth and a giant bug exploding from their body and the boner I got from watching it
  14. Interesting snapshot of the first round through the player efficiency lens: Top 5 in PER: 1. Embiid - 39.4 2. Giannis - 31.6 3. Durant - 29.7 4. Kawhi - 28.9 5. Bledsoe - 28.7 Tells me two things. 1. The Nets going super small wasn’t a great idea. 2. Embiid doing this on a bum knee should terrify the rest of the East. If his knee continues to improve I think they can pull it off in round 2.
  15. I'll be there in GA someplace. Gotta get there early to make sure I get an actual seat. Can't say I'm excited for anything besides the tag match, but Slammiversary was so good last year that they deserve repeat customers.
  16. 21 Bridges Chadwick Boseman, JK Simmons, Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch and most importantly Keith David
  17. Would Kenny be better off as a heel world champion that the faces chase after? I was thinking that after thinking about Kenny chasing Jericho for the belt, but then realizing having Kenny as the heel champ that not all mainstream fans know about would be a fresher angle to sell to them.
  18. Only way it could have been worse for NBC was if the Canadian teams all advanced. Sportsnet is going to take a bath (again) up north with all of the Canadian teams being eliminated.
  19. Please tell me more about being there for that. Even watching on tape that show was cringe inducing
  20. Eventually it looks like battered spouse syndrome.
  21. The best and, at the same time, worst part of the whole Eliminators saga is how it gave us the expression "shoot retarded."
  22. Today
  23. I think I would feel about as uncomfortable playing MK on the bus as I do watching something like Berserk
  24. How nice of them to give older fans a reason to stop buying single issues a week after Universe's comic library becomes worthwhile.
  25. If the Warriors lose in the first round, if anyone but the Clips win it all, all the media will be like “but they didn’t beat the Warriors!”
  26. Well again - the thing people pointed out (at least based on Page's initial tweet) was that Game Changer Wrestling (which is bigger and just as local as AAW) wasn't name so it came across as AAW punching down. (Basically knowing people will pick GCW over AAW)
