  1. I don't know if it is because wrestling companies can't do basic story telling now. But watching 94/95 WCW and I am really enjoying it. Stories that make sense within their own world, clearly defined characters and decent action. I suppose the Dungeon Of Doom is silly, but compared to Lucha Underground and other indies, it is UWFI. Going out and aggressively signing talent like Malenko, Benoit and Eddy along with the luchadors was a great move. Kevin Sullivan knew what the the company needed and how to satisfy various egos. That WCW went to hell after getting rid of him in creative says a

  2. I am so into the Iconics shtick. I love everything they do. They are such fucking assholes, and I love watching them get beat up after running their mouths. I hope they never turn. I want them to be total shitheads forever.

  4. Probably because I'm a person with many, many interests I find the single-minded overachiever to be a fascinating subject, my favorite baseball players include well-known pricks like Ty Cobb, Rogers Hornsby, and Steve Carlton. Three more unpleasant people you'd have a hard time finding; you'd also have a hard time finding three people better at what they chose to do. Wrestling, yeah, DK, Misawa, and Jumbo are my Holy Trinity. One died in the ring and one busted himself up so badly that he was in a wheelchair while I was out playing softball. (Yeah, I'm a year older than DK, but I didn't turn m

  5. I read Pure Dynamite about nine years ago. I've known people worse than Dynamite with none of the pluses. To his credit he owned up to bad things he did, probably too much. Without the anger and pain, we would not know who he is and maybe he would be happy. Or maybe he would still be miserable. But that is life isn't it, we live with the choices we make. Whatever the case, Dynamite paid for every bad thing he did. But good or bad we end up in the grave. As a talent you can't really deny him. Every undersized wrestler owes him a debt. He had a good mind for wrestling. Unlike a lot of t

  6. It's easy to look and back and say that Dynamite should've toned it down in the ring. But in most fields of sports and entertainment, being afraid to go too far often means you won't go far enough. I mean, let's be honest. How many people would pay to see a guy who's 5'8 do nothing but stomps and headlocks? It would seem that the only reliable means of getting over without taking significant risks in the ring are to possess freakish size/strength or a physique that's impossible to maintain year-round through natural means. And going either of those routes will most likely lead to your body tur

  8. I know that "Ever Fallen In Love?" is THE most basic Buzzcocks pick, but it's such an A-1 perfect song, and such a perfect gateway into a band I probably wouldn't have explored without hearing that gateway drug, that I have to share it:

  11. Holy shit yeah good times. If y'all want to piss off a whole lot of NPC go to Braithwaite manor and have fun. Robert and I spent most of the night just farting around. It was good times. I think next time we're gonna try to derail the train. Yeah I don't know 1 eminem song. It was actually 2 names. I'm with Robert, I pictured an old married couple sitting side by side with matching shirts, greasy ass unshampooed hair, Cheetos covering their face and hands and giving each other a kiss when they killed somebody and a smack when they got killed. I guess the reason I pictured this is,

  15. Smash Brothers is about as fun of a game as you'll ever play, but it's appeal is kind of inexplicable. It is a 4-player fighting game where you try to knock your opponents off the edge of the stage. It is super simple, so a complete novice feels like they can compete, but the gameplay is so tight and responsive that you can get really good at it. Four friends, a couple of drinks, and Smash Brothers is guaranteed hours of fun.

  17. I'm gonna be disappointed if y'all tell me those were from Eminem lyrics. I was really picturing them as a middle aged couple that things wearing cheesy matching sweaters is endearing. I've heard one Eminem song in my lifetime. Two if Forgot about Dre counts. I have heard melraz do a pretty good Nate Dogg, though. Reba's lookin rough. Looks like she's down to about 90 pounds, despite eating about 10000 calories of meat per day. Getting her head bashed into the side of a post last night probably didn't help. I've worked out a pretty good system of shooting alligators in the head

  20. School is going well and I still have no idea what I am going to do with it. Mickey Mantle once said if he knew he would live so long, he would have taken care of himself. When I was nineteen I thought I had no future. No matter what I was just trying to run the clock out. I took care of my family and friends, but I did not care if I died. Even my writing was/is a hobby to give me a creative output. Some numb nut on here thought I was doing it to make money. Yeah I am living large on that thirty eight cents I got last month. But now I have a support system and people who think I am worth

  21. Punishnent Martinez rules. That is one of the best ridiculous wrestling names ever. “Hey! I’m Punishment, it’s nice to meet you.” His theme music sounds like a Suicide b-Side. I also went to a random Puerto Rican hardcore show when I was in college and Punishment looked like all those dudes. All in on a maniacal post-punk fan of Puerto Rican heritage with striking abilities.

  24. This is me going way too school teacher on everyone but feel like saying it. Sorry in advance. I read Pure Dynamite and everyone else should even though it makes you feel pretty shitty a lot of the time. Good wrestling stories too but that's not what I pulled out of it. It kind of shows how just being miserable as a personality trait just fucking destroys you. We all get kind of shitty sometimes but you gotta get yourself out of it before it defines you. Almost every post here is about how shitty a person Tom was. Don't let that be all everyone says about you. Get help, do

  25. I'm a little bitter that I probably won't get to play it til Monday (won't be home between leaving for work tomorrow and late Sat night, and my leasing office is closed Sunday), but I'm stupidly excited. I've probably sunk more time into Smash than any other short-session game series in the last 15 years.

  29. That Dakota/Shayna match was a keeper. Dakota is an awesome babyface. Shayna is the best. She does such a great job as someone who acts like this dominant monster but always finds a way to escape with a victory. Her henchwomen rule, too. They make such great jerk jock snob faces.

  30. I'm interested to see how the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer is going to work out, since everyone who follows these movies presumably watched Infinity War and knows that Spider-Man is "dead". Unless it's set before Infinity War but after Homecoming and they make that clear, I don't understand anything about the promotional process for this movie. Saturday will be interesting.

  31. You're going to get honesty one way or another when people pass away, Vic, it's just the nature of how these things are. If people weren't honest about how they felt about him, this thread would be pretty empty and full of meaningless platitudes. No one wants to actively bash the dead, but if that's how they view the person, they have every right to express it in a public forum if they so choose. That's how I feel anyway. Take the good with the bad if there's a lot of it.

  36. That Luka stepback last night. WHEW! https://streamable.com/uo5ar Bill Simmons has been hyping up a potential Dallas trade where they unload Wes Matthews expiring contract to add another piece. I love that idea. They don't have their pick for next year so why not get Luka in the playoffs so he can get some reps. Dallas has played a really easy schedule so far, but they do have some quality wins this year. Last night might be their best win yet. Playoffs are definitely in the picture. I'm sure Random Act is hyped at this point.
