  1. If there's one finish you change through the entire run of Manias, this is number one with a GD bullet. Like nothing else is even remotely close.

  3. Wrestlers should periodically trip over their own tongue in promos for the same reason they should struggle to put on a hold in the ring. It feels more organic, more realistic. In the latter case, it masks the cooperation and contrivance of a spot under "competitive" struggle that gets exposed when everyone does every thing clean the first time [and worse yet exposes botches more badly because those are the only time anyone "misses" something.] Similarly, when they recite their written material clean and perfectly reproduce what's on the page, it just makes it more obvious everyone's perfor

  4. I wish there'd been some sort of follow up to the 94 Rumble, with 14 odd guys trying to look each other in the eye and carry on with their lives, knowing they willingly murdered a guy and buried him on live TV. None of this Leslie Nielsen stuff. Focus on the drama between Kwang and Headshrinker Samu, who has remorse, who doesn't. Then maybe segue into an I Know What You Did Last Summer sort of thing, despite it not being made for another 2 years, with Taker coming back, and then murdering them all, and clearing out the awful midcard at that point.

  5. Mid 90’s WWE felt incredibly like a big budget Memphis with the wacky gimmicks and characters, King coming in, Cornette being all over TV, the NWA being featured. It was a weird time.

  6. I'm skipping over the catfight, because, no. Growing up as a gay man and a wrestling fan, I've tended to develop a thick skin about some things. (Others, nope!) There's a disquieting level of misogyny, racism, xenophobia, homophobia, and transphobia, (among many other things... WEAR A MASK) that you sort of learn to tune out if you want any enjoyment of the product. So, Booker T being told "world champions don't look like you" raises a few red flags. HHH was in his "I'm like Harley Race" phase of his career, and WWE was still in the dying throes of the Attitude Era. So the dog wh

  8. Lance Archer fucking rules. Janela still struggles to not look silly doing anything athletic but Archer coming out with Sonny and using him as a weapon as part of his entrance is great. He's such a mean bastard. Jake looking pretty rough again. Moving very gingerly and sweating through his shirt. Brother needs that DDP Yoga back in his life. Tag title match was one of the better Private Party outings and significantly better than last week. Champs leaned into their strikes, really pouring it on against PP. Smart bit of psychology for them to use their size and striking prowess against the

  9. It’s 12:48am and I’m laying in bed, awake thinking about ice cream. I know my wife has a tub of vanilla in the freezer and we have Oreos on top of the cupboard. I could smash those up in a bowl with ice cream. But I know I won’t sleep again tonight. I think about food too much. Pre-married pre-COVID world me would have probably an hour ago went out for wings and beer. Buffalo wings and a big cold mug of Summit EPA. I do have beer in the fridge. A few wrongly poured growlers I got from my brother for free. Also some Rolling Rocks. I might even have a Hopslam left. Next to the ham. Which if I do

  12. Speaking of LGBTQ+ allies, Nick Gage is on Kameo now. And the first one he did, he said trans rights are human rights and he'll fight anyone who disagrees. Then tweeted that even though he was paid to say that on cameo, he would have said it for free because it's what he legit believes.

  13. Meaning what? That young folks are becoming more aware of the world's injustices and are doing their part to not contribute to them? Goddamn, I hope so. I struggle everyday with how to be to a more positive force in life in order to set the example for my boys for those kinds of things. I don't want my generation's missteps to continue to fuck things up for everyone.

  15. My friend and I were talking about Raven earlier, and about how perfect his look and character were for the mid-90's. That got me thinking, what are some of the most zeitgeist-defining looks or gimmicks in wrestling history. I suppose you'd have to mention Hogan in the 80's. When two of the biggest stars in Hollywood were Schwarzenegger and Stallone, the WWF had their very own version with Hulk. Nowadays, even though the gimmick is at least 6 years old at this point, I don't think anyone has a more contemporary look than Sasha Banks.

  17. Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by how good Archer/Janela was, considering I don’t like Janela at all. But he did a good job of throwing himself at Archer, and Archer is just so tuned into his character, it’s scary. He always knows where to find the camera, and the camera loves him. I also really liked that the big table spot on the outside was the finish. I feel like you don’t see that a lot.

  18. Thought the tag title match was pretty great, but it's starting to feel like diminishing returns on Hangman and Omega. If I were an actual, legitimate wrestler, I'd have to be talked into selling for Joey Janela even a little bit. This should've been a glorified squash. I have no idea why guys like Moxley and Archer give him so much. Loved the 8 man. All four of those teams would be the best team on any WWE brand, and one actually was. The AEW tag division is truly an embarrassment of riches. Nyla was fine-ish. I get the feeling something didn't go through that was supposed to

  20. Yes. Also, the newer generations not only have access to learning via the Internet that we didn't have but are using it positively... unlike their predecessors. Dumping children into a no-hope warzone is gonna make them smarter and warier in all fashions, anyway. You gotta grow up fast.

  21. It was all about the house shows back then. That's what's so maddening about listening to Alvarez review SNME episodes. They talk about them in modern terms and can't understand the booking, not realizing that, most of the time, matches were booked for SNME only after they'd exhausted their ability to draw on house shows.

  22. Hogan could've used a front facelock against Slaughter. It worked before, when he beat that big, stinky Richard Belzer. But really, he couldve gotten him with the camel clutch after knocking Sarge out cold, leaving the ref no choice but to call it after doing the three arm drops.

  24. I would pay so much money for Dusty Rhodes to commentate the section with the kendo sticks, particularly when she beats the referee's ass with one. I was looking up when Grizzly retired ('93) because she's not really lumped in with a lot of the women from that golden generation and saw this on her pro wrestling wiki profile (VERY OFFICIAL): Yeah. I can see why. They really beat the shit out of each other, even for a joshi match, and brought extra emotion (mostly hatred and rage).

  25. I watched this week first time since April. I liked the women’s tag match. I like Kylie and Susie as a team I like Susie as a character the stuff between Susie and Rosemary at the beginning was pretty fun. They may have teased a John E Bravo face turn with him checking on Rosemary leaving Taya open for the school girl from Kylie and getting pinned. Whatever they are setting up between Susie and Rosemary I feel bad for the inevitable beating Kylie is gonna take when Susie transforms back to Su Yung. The 4 way tag was cool. They have a very versatile tag division, versatile Knockouts D

  27. Sasha in general for the times. Bayley right now with her I'd like to speak to the manager beats. Orange Cassidy and Adam Page are both kinda on point. The new day as a whole right now have been on point with pop culture. This one is gonna sound strange. John Cena was perfect for his big time up top. He represented a throw back attempt to get the kids. When he was on top the #1 video game system was the wii and all the "hardcore" gamers were pissed off. It didn't really work business wise but the idea was solid in my opinion.

  29. I think this pretty much is an indicator that television (both linear and OTT) is basically a content mill now (shit, look at the beating Quibi is taking right now). You would have a shorter amount of time naming who doesn't have a television show in some shape or form. As much as I'm not a fan of the "intersectional/being black is not a monolith" crowd, I can say confidently as an African-American that the black spectrum now on television is vast compared to the 90s when Living Single was a breakthough for black television. A show like Pose for example on FX wouldn't exist even twenty years o

  32. I loved Watch Dogs 2. The exchange between Marcus and Horatio during the Nudle (Google) mission is the best. "But with two of us (ie black men) here at the same place, they're gonna think we're plottin'." "WE ARE PLOTTIN'~!" It was refreshing to see Ubi use the game as a platform to cast barbs at institutional racism in the form of Marcus & Horatio's joke telling contest on the bus ride up to the Nudle campus. "What do you call a black man in front of twelve people? The defendant! What do you call a black man in front of a thousand people? THE PRESIDENT~!" Yo

It's kind of impossible to explain without giving away important plot points, but it deals with a family with a history of mental illness that's left reeling after the passing of one of its members. Toni Collette was robbed of an Oscar nomination. There were so many great creepy things going on in the background that I wonder if I may have missed some. The Babadook: This might have eve
