  1. Just seeing this now. OSJ was a good guy. I always liked interacting with him. Great sense of humor. I'll definitely miss seeing his name pop up on here.
  2. That said, I have never watched AEW live and I am planning on watching this tonight.
  3. Am I alone in thinking the Blood and Guts match is rushed? Like really really really rushed? Didn’t MJF pull the wool over The Inner Circle’s eyes six weeks ago or so? I love that The Pinnacle gelled together so quickly that Dax is willing to die for MJF, whom he has only really associated with for all of three paychecks (if AEW has direct deposit.)
  4. I just started catching up on a bunch of AEW. I really liked the segment where MJF revealed The Pinnacle and got one over on The Inner Circle. But man, JR and Tony S. were pretty terrible in that segment and a bunch of the other things I've watched. It that a widely held belief or is it just me? But they serve the same exact purpose -- opinionated play-by-play, and each of them has the same opinions. And JR putting over Wardlow in the way he did -- he's the moneymaker in this organization, he'll be introduced first one day, etc. The whole focus of the segment should have been putting MJF over
  5. Gargano’s arc as a performer out of the ring is just insane. DIY’s initial face run was terrible in terms of promos. I think that maybe their first promo was them coming to the ring together ripping on AOP or someone like that and it was terrible — like the worst college improv you could ever watch in your life. It was so bad considering these guys were indie legends or whatever already, so I assume had experience doing that stuff, but it was maybe the worst promo in NXT history (a promotion that has largely had great promos.) None of their stuff was good, unless it was something pre-tape
  6. I have no idea how Johnny Gargano could go from the most insufferable babyface ever to one of the most enjoyable comedy heels of all-time. Candace and The Kids are also fantastic. The Way rules.
  7. Ja just tried to win a game at the end of OT against the Nuggets with a T-Mac off-the-backboard dunk at the buzzer and it ALMOST f'n worked. That dude's collection of missed highlights are the greatest ever.
  8. Money promo from Charlotte. That had a fantastic motivation for her appearance and later actions. It was nowhere on the same page as The Rock’s legendary promo in Toronto (maybe my favorite promo of all-time), but it was very strong in informing the audience of why she returned in this form, made excuses for not being on WrestleMania, references the smark criticisms of her “stealing opportunities” and announced she was the best, and then attacked when her rivals were spent from their match and vulnerable. Perfect heeling. I will never understand at all why people hate on Charlotte. She ru
  9. Great way to bookend the weekend with both world champs leaving in the hands of the bad guys. I did not see every match since having a toddler means I just randomly have to fall asleep during key matches. I also was on protest from watching WWE for reasons but I am a weak man like all of us so did not know much of the backstories aside from the Reigns match and Sasha/Bianca and the hysterical Sami/Owens feud. But everything I watched was really fun. Sasha/Bianca was my favorite match. I love the Novak/Federer/Rafa style match between the Four Horsewomen as to who has the crown as th
  10. I get that but it is really easy to picture Suggs putting up 32 points in Game 6 of a conference finals and I am not sure I have thought that about any college player since Anthony Davis.
  11. Man, how is Suggs not going to be the number one pick in the draft? That kid is the truth.
  12. I wish things were a lot different because I would love to see The Hurt Business against The Wyatts or The Shield. Hurt Business against a reformed New Day at some point would also be super fun.
  13. I have stayed away from the WWE because reasons. But I did catch up on this. When I saw Miz was going all chickenshit heel, I thought they were going to try and do a redo of a few recent Mania chases where the face keeps getting the legs pulled out from him before getting the big win at Mania. I am glad they did not do that because Lashley is way better as just an overwhelming force. And the whole thing with The Hurt Business engineering it so Miz won the title makes them look like really cunning strategists — a really great cool heel stable. (If they are heels, since I have no idea, but
  14. I came here for the "Sweet" Stan Lane is Lauren Boehbert's secret father discussion. There's also a YouTube post floating around where Lauren herself writes a YouTube comment on I believe a video about professional powerboat racing that The Fabulous One hosted after his wrestling career ended. Everything about this is perfect pro wrestling. I've been really fascinated by Lauren Boehbert since she came to fame as she a historic lunatic. Of course an 80s wrestling legend being tied into this would happen. A+ booking and I absolutely need this to be true.
  15. Sorry if this breaks the no politics rule so feel to take this down. But Linda McMahon’s PAC contributed to putting together Trump’s event on Wednesday. I will never click on one thing related to the WWE ever again. https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2021/01/09/pro-trump-dark-money-groups-organized-the-rally-that-led-to-deadly-capitol-hill-riot.html?__twitter_impression=true
  16. Other stuff I love:
  17. Done with the whole season. So many awesome moments. Do not read the spoiler tag until you have watched the entire season.
  18. Masterpiece of a TV season.
  19. 2.5 episodes in. As good as expected — and now with the addition of an evil car dealership owner.
  20. I get why it looks bad. I work in PR and have also worked a little in Investor Relations. The WWE is a publicly traded corporation and anything they put out on social media is going to be parsed and scrutinized by all sorts of investors, potential investors, people looking to short their stock and any number of lawyers looking for the slightest reason to file a shareholder’s suit against the company. They have to be as buttoned-up as possible on those sorts of announcements. It is cold but that is the nature of corporate America. You have to make this announcement but have to be as f
  21. This is one of my all-time favorite moments in NXT. It's right after The Wyatts made their debut on Raw and return home as conquering heroes to say goodbye. They absolutely destroy their opponents (pre-push Aiden English) and then Bray cuts an all-time banger of a promo. But what I really love about it is Brodie's reaction in the background -- a "Wow" that just sort of looks like he's recognizing that The Wyatt Family has finished its NXT masterpiece and they're now going to places they could not have ever expected. I've watched Wyatts vs. Shield so many f'n times. They teased the feud at
  22. Wyatts vs. Shield is my favorite match of all-time. This really sucks. What a talented guy. I also know a few people who have had involvement with Chikara over the years and they all said he was just an absolute gem of a person.
  23. Release date is now Jan. 1! Bring it to me
  24. Good for Giannis and good for Milwaukee. That's one of my favorite cities in the country and it's awesome that the MVP of the league wants to stay there for good.
  25. I know I am a year late on this but Booksmart is an instant classic. What a funny and smart take on high school movies. It completely flipped the script on the genre. And it also was not afraid to still do gross-out humor and get into the awkwardness of early sex. But, mostly, the theme of “Wow, actually high school was not bad, and the people who were supposedly the popular kids were really not that bad and maybe I was not the dork I thought I was.” I had my 20th reunion a few years ago and it was one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I was picked on and bullied a ton when
