  5. Not to shortchange your post, but the points that you make aren't really an issue with NXT. They're an issue with how the company promotes wrestlers coming up from NXT. The presentation of the cruisers is a Vince McMahon issue, not a NXT or CWC issue. Guys like Kevin Owens got over on NXT TV beyond just being known for his ROH or PWG work because he was presented effectively. On the other hand, he came up and was being 50/50d after beating Cena. Zayn's gotten it worse. The presentation is there on NXT beyond just relying on name value. Nakamura comes off as a stud, Joe comes off as a killer, because of how they are booked and presented, and that goes beyond name recognition. All the problems that you point out can go right in the pile with the rest of the problems with how shitty main roster WWE is. Holy shit, no one is arguing that fans like Gregg are shitty because they don't follow every aspect of every indie or Japanese wrestler's career. Your rants are pushing a false premise that is contra to the discussion that NXT is specifically catered for indie fans by the company itself to draw those fans in and away from New Japan or ROH or whoever else might otherwise take their entertainment dollars. We get it, you hate wrestling nerd fans. Odd, since you're on a board full of wrestling nerd fans, but hey, you do you.

  12. ASMR is based on certain sounds/experiences causing tingling sensations that start at the scalp, move to the neck, and all the way down the spine. Ear massage can be a trigger from some who are sensitive enough for ASMR. ************************************** I'll go now.

  14. I really want this company to go out of business. Not because I have any stake or investment in it - I've maybe watched a grand total of 30 hours of TNA programming since it's inception. Not because I want the people involved with it to lose their jobs. Not because I want WWE to have a monopoly. But because I want somebody to take the ashes of what used to be TNA and run it properly and make it what it could/should have been years ago. The few times I tuned in to TNA was because I know/knew they had a supremely talented roster. They had their own guys like AJ and Joe and Roode and a good mix of ex-WWE guys like Christian and Angle and Booker T, all guys I knew who could get it done in the ring. But after watching for a week or two, I could see that there was no direction at all. It was aimless and the guys were just collecting a paycheck. If Vince McMahon is a millionaire who should be a billionaire, what does that make Dixie Carter? She had some of the most talented in-ring performers at her disposal, but then brought in the most inept people to handle them behind the scenes. Image what this company could have been if Dixie Carter was not involved. If TNA finally goes under and Billy Corgan - or ANYBODY - is able to scoop up the remnants and re-build/re-brand the company, I would certainly begin watching again and see where it goes. But while Dixie is still involved, I just cannot make the time investment in what I know is a company about to implode. The company finally dying on the vine is "what's best for business".

  15. The saddest thing about listening to Jesse Sorensen talking about her. He's not even that angry. Like you or me would be. He doesn't realize that she was manipulating him and his family from the get go. She didn't want to get sued. He got played. You know he got fired a month after the statute of limitations that he could sue them ran out. (He had a year per Tennessee work laws to take proper legal action but chose not to because "Well, TNA and Dixie have been so nice!") Do not tell me that is a mere coincidence. This woman is simply not a good person. She's a horror.

  16. Long story short - Dixie has conned Fight Network. Dixie and Fight Network are trying to buy Corgan's silence. Corgan is refusing to do so... yet

  17. He said he was six and he sounded six. Some other guy on the game chat was like "dude, no way this guy's six, he's trolling you." Me: "Don't care." (Explodes dot for 100th time)

  19. In the immortal words of our great mayor, "fuck 'em." I've kicked a 6-year-old's ass after he pissed me off in the game chat. He kept saying "why are you kiwwing me?" It was totes adorbs. You're never too young to learn valuable life lessons.

  20. At this point that is kind of more on you. Who Aries is and what his motivations are have been explained. If you don't give a crap about Aries at this point, its probably more that you just don't like him.

  21. When you're trying to be a major league promotion, you shouldn't be doing bush league shit like not paying for people who get hurt in your ring. There're no excuses for that shit.

  29. It's not that they're bringing in indie/Japan stars that I have a problem with. They should bring in those people, just as they should develop their own people But it's so easy to present them to a new audience. Take Eric Young for instance. He showed up randomly a few months ago and gave a forgettable challenge promo and then had a match for the title. What's in it for someone who doesn't know who this guy is? But him leading a team of maniacal anarchists? THAT is great. I can get behind that. Imagine if Sanity was his debut? Or Bobby Roode flipping the "NXT is the place to be!" promo on his head and trying to replace the NXT crowd with captains of industry? Yes, please. That's great. But binging in Roddy Strong as a mystery partner and having the fans explode is the new "YOUR TEAM SUCKS!" Like... bring these people in, but do so in at least a little bit of a creative manner. People who follow Japan/indies/etc. will still pop, but now you're giving people who don't follow those things a hook as well.

  32. Goddammit. It's hard to describe how out of left field his standup was when his HBO special hit out of nowhere (I guess for those of us not in L.A.) in 1986. He was like this corny but somehow also sarcastic maniac.

  35. I had a 13 year old beg me not to shoot him while he came up the stairs to see where I was hiding. So, the second time he came up the stairs, he was in passive. He then went off radar and begged me not to shoot him while he left passive, then shot me in the back while I killed his friend for the fifteenth time. The worst part is, he then gloated about it. Eventually they ran, so I chased them. They begged me to stop killing them, so I said "Give me five good reasons I should." They wanted to know what happened to One good reason. I asked if they had one good reason. Silence. So I said "Well, I still need five, I'm a Deathmatch legend". And then they left the game, after I blew their car up again.

  37. BTW, I'm completely surprised at them using Van Ness as a heel after seeing her live (using the name Chelsea Green( a couple weeks ago. Like, she's a solid heel, but she's such a great face that there was a 5-6 year-old-girl who was walking around the place crying and pouting and her Mom explained to people "she's upset because Chelsea lost". Our seats were right next to the merch table, and I've never seen a line of creepier dudes lining up to take photos with her and she was so sweet and friendly to every one of them. She also got to console the girl who was crying, but it didn't help. She just seemed like a real, naturally friendly and cheeful person that I'd bet it would come across on TV.
