  1. So at what point do you feel the Nation of Domination jumped the shark?

  2. Hollywood Observer: A lot of Oscar buzz surrounding James Franco putting on over 100 pounds to play White Pootie Tang. Some groups protest “do we need a white pootie tang?” Sony exec. Claps back “did we need a black one?” Director Lars von Trier insists “it will be culturally sensitive to the original material of which I am a huge fan.” Developing...

  4. I feel like, once the crisis has passed and if NJPW and AEW start working together, Orange Cassidy and Juice Robinson should form a tag team. They could call themselves "Cassidy & Robinson."

  5. This reminds me of the scene in every James Bond movie where the head of the evil people group is like “anyone who disagrees with this plan feel free to speak up now” and then that person is eaten by an octopus.

  8. Come on now. Vince can't even complete the sentence "sports entertainers are completely safe and are welcome to go to HR with any issues without fear of reprisal" without laughing uncontrollably. Meltzer had a great point a week ago when discussing how WWE and AEW both told wrestlers they were free to stay home, and how absolutely mind boggling it was that, after both companies made that edict, AEW is working with a skeleton crew while WWE still has a mostly full roster. So weird, that. No idea what could cause that, really.

  9. The Mountie would be a little more sinister these days with a bald Jacques Rougeau. Edit: Just realized that Jacques now has sort of a Baron Von Raschke look. Or in other words.. "I'm the Da Baron, I'm handsome, I'm brave, I'm strong. I'm Da Baron, and I apply the claw"

  15. I can’t believe they booked Woody Harrelson to play the Mountie in that episode, seems a needless expense! I really enjoyed that episode. Really shone a light on the benefits of getting on Vince’s good side while in the WWF and having a plan B for when you leave.

  19. Most recent NBA obsession: Wizards Jordan. He was way better in a Washington than people remember. Before getting hurt, when he was starting the first year he was 24/5/6 on 42% shooting (his numbers dropped because he came off the bench for seven games with a bum knee before shutting it down for the season. Before the injury, he was a legit borderline mvp candidate. He wasn't as good in 02-03, but he was also 40 and coming off knee surgery, and still put up a 20-6-4 on 45% while playing 37 minutes a night and had 3 40 point games after turning 40. If he had taken the urging from Phil to come to L.A. as a mentor in 99-00, and only played say 25 minutes a night, that already great Lakes team could've steamrolled the league.

  23. This was from Justin Roberts a few years back (around 2014), explaining who Scott Dunlap was and how he got the chance to work as an announcer for WCW. To be honest, I presumed he was the son of a Turner Broadcasting employee or something similar. Meet Scott. He has spastic cerebral palsy in all four limbs. He LOVES professional wrestling. He has since he was a child. He told me that “people with disabilities look at their heroes get beat down and love to see them come back up” and how motivating that is. He loves to see the wrestlers fight through their personal issues as well. He didn’t have a social life in high school, but found happiness in professional wrestling. These days, he turns to professional wrestling for an escape. Scott had wanted to be a wrestling announcer. Through a counselor in high school and then the Starlight Foundation, Scott received the opportunity from Eric Bischoff and the now defunct World Championship Wrestling to be an announcer on two shows interviewing Davey Boy Smith and Ric Flair. Scott was thrilled when that happened and just as thrilled recently when they reunited a couple of weeks ago in Dallas.

  25. @Curt McGirt @DEAN @Matt D @thee Reverend Axl Future Matt, I have not seen Blackwell vs Mulligan nor have I seen Ratchke vs Weaver before. In fact, It is probable that catching up on this thread over the last couple of days marks the first time I have ever seen Johnny Weaver or Killer Kowalski in action. I don't think I've ever seen the Dustin vs Vader match that Curt posted. Surely I would have remembered that sick clothesline on the floor and the terrific flip bump Dustin took off of it. Vader has to be one of the all time kings of clubbering. His big inside forearm shots are literally the perfect example of clubbing blows. That being said, the more Blackwell I watch, the closer he gets to Tenta and Vader on top of my personal rankling of masculine behemoth pro wrestlers. I love this call in the Blackwell match: "The big fat man is using his weight to his advantage." "Yes, he is." I loved Blackwell vs Blackjack, and I enjoyed seeing Raschke, too. I think the most impressive thing in that entire video was Gene Mean's astounding curly toupee. My head almost exploded when I realized who that was. I remember Terry Funk telling the story of how Raschke would line up an opponent in the corner and lunge in with the claw, only for the opponent to dodge and Raschke's claw hand to get stuck on the turnbuckle with him unable to break his grip. Imagine getting something like that completely over with the crowd! Has anyone even tried something remotely similar since, I guess, the MasterLock challenge? It was a damned interesting thing to have two claw-centric matches on one TV show. I agree with Curt that the sound on that Kowalski vs Rikidozan match was amazing. Those strikes! They didn't have the sharp crack that we are too used to hearing in the kickpads/leg slap era. It's the dull fleshy thud of bone slamming into muscle. I wonder how they mic'd up that ring. I wish someone could figure it out and copy it. Imagine that sound paired with the sweat-flying visual impact captured by modern lighting and high-def cameras! Then those two Joshi matches that DEAN posted: The first part of Kudo vs Toyoda was like Black Terry vs Wotan without the gravel. It didn't feel like a pro wrestling match fought by pro wrestlers wearing street clothes. It felt like an actual street fight. It was almost disappointing when they got back in the ring and started doing more pro wrestlingy type stuff. If Megumi vs Combat was like two rival gang members throwing down, Kansia vs Hotta was like the two toughest ladies from rival kyokushin dojos settling a grudge. It was like a combination of Tenryu vs Hash with Shibata vs Shinsuke. What amazes me here is that, even if we narrow our focus to something as specific as "90s Joshi brawls" there is still a depth and richness to what we might find. It's also pretty amazing that (unless I'm mistaken) that the second of those matches is from the same card as The Greatest Joshi Singles Match of All Time. Pro wrestling, man... Speaking of which:

  27. I honestly think I need to watch this episode again, because there is so much to digest here. I've reached a tipping point where Nacho's story is stressing me out. I just need that dude to find a way out, but I get the feeling that Lalo is going to find him in season 6 and make his life hell. I'm so disappointed in Kim This might be a weird observation, but they kinda tipped their hand that she was making a turn with her letting her hair down. I saw someone notice a while back that her hair is always up, but her hair was down for most of this episode. The writers of this show don't waste any movements.

  28. Yeah, very good show. The mystery partner for Dreamer and Rhyno was a pleasant surprise (I won't say who it was just in case anyone hasn't seen the show yet) and Shamrock/Callihan was great. Willie Mack is something else. A guy that fat should not be so damn athletic. Looking forward to next week's show.

  29. That's totally worth ten bucks. It's on my wish list but I can't pull the trigger because I got enough to play as it is. By the way, my first crack at Streets of Rage 2 in over 20 years and I made it to stage 7(out of 8 ) with my five year old. Not as good the second time around with my 12 year old, who felt like he'd brought the family great dishonor by not achieving more with the old man. So a great night for ME.

  30. Honestly, I think it would be better if the doc ends with Schultz saying something with meaning or with regret and suddenly Stossel runs in, smacks him in the face and yells "Payback's a bitch, bitch!" and then runs the fuck out of there. And it cuts to black.

  36. size is a virtue in wrestling. Yoko had like 6 moves and 5 of them could've been a top-tier finisher if he'd wanted them to be. (legrdop, corner reverse splash, belly to belly, uranage, and the banzai drop that actually was). like how even Andre's hiptoss looked devastating. Love the disrespect of the face palm pin cover too. But I could go on all day [and have] about Yoko as an all time Squash Match great.

  42. You picture makes me think of Lalo and Nacho pulling up to the compound, the guard walking up, the window rolls down, and Lalo has the most ridiculous face. He's a piece of shit villain and I hope he does, but I fucking love him. One of the best villains on TV.
