  1. Jimmy Butler tried to fight through injury, but his elbow is massively fucked right now. He's out at least 2-3 weeks. So... um..... how bout them Panthers?
  2. I hate that I read this to the tune of "Caribbean Queen".
  3. Yes, it's being billed as "Winner Take All" and not "Unification" because Tony gets a tax write off for the more belts he has out there.
  4. 100%. And yet, when "Sierra... Hotel.... " played, I was convinced for .1 seconds that Hunter had pulled off the coup of a lifetime and somehow called Dean Ambrose home.
  5. Well, someone found out he was about to get reassigned to cover JV in Fort Wayne and Terre Haute...
  6. This all said, I'll guarantee you, there are some 13th & 14th members of rosters around the Association who desperately want this story to go away.
  7. Philly get New York Miami hosts Chicago Atlanta gets the boot Tyler Herro tried his damnedest to get it done, but the Heat came up *just short*. You could hear Philly's butts unclench when the clock finally hit 0.0.
  8. The final Arizona Coyotes game was a 5-3 win vs Ottawa. NHL approved the move to Utah a couple of days ago, so that's it.
  9. Aaron Rodgers opened his mouth again. It's about HIV/AIDS and Dr. Fauci and "plandemics" and FUCK him.
  10. Miami picked up the options for Jaylen Waddle and Jaelen Phillips for next season. Waddle's may convert to a regular contract extension soon, per reports. Also, to quash that little rumor, the Dolphins have no plans to take a QB in the first round. Negotiations with Tua are ongoing.
  11. "He avoided the tag." lol stfu Michael
  12. We're almost ready for Dynasty! Hopefully the only footage they'll show this week is that of the new IWGP World Heavyweight Champion:
  13. Speaking of choking... the Bruins lost in Ottawa! Florida's about 10 minutes from grabbing the division title and facing Tampa instead of Toronto.
  14. Here's a sentence I never thought I'd type... The writers of Sesame Street have voted unanimously to go on strike. Picketing could begin as soon as tomorrow.
  15. MON DIEU! La WWE arrive en France! C'est la merde? Une façon de le savoir! LA PROGAMMATION~! POUR LE CHAMPIONNAT INCONTESTÉ - Le Chauchemar Américain Cody Rhodes (c) contre Les Phénoménal AJ Styles OU LA Chevalier POUR LE CHAMPIONNAT DU MOND - Damien Prêtre (c) contre Événement Principal Jey Uso
  16. Since Hunter took over ... damn almost 20 months ago now... is Rhea the first truly story altering major injury he's had to deal with? Cause I can't imagine she was going to lose the title to Liv almost immediately after her triumphant Mania match. Now I can't see anyone else winning it, barring someone huge returning. Also, supposedly Becky hasn't signed her extension. Which makes me think that Mania match could have been a soft farewell while she goes to AEW or Japan for a while for a *much* needed freshening up. But then again, she may just re-sign now that Rhea's sidelined for however long.
  17. When I tell you how much I hate the Knicks...
  18. Y'all remember that laughing horse from the Pink Panther cartoon? Cause that's the exact sounds I made when I read Bauer's line.
  19. I think this is at the key to the production changes. Vince/Dunn hit gold when they, I guess, watched Natural Born Killers, and thought that's how they should present their product from then on. Zero attention span theater... quick cuts, shaky cam, impact zooms, etc. And for a long while there, it worked and made them seem very hip and edgy, which is something I'm positive Vince obsessed about (wanting very much to get past the era of smoke filled VFW Halls). The latest example of which is the AR stuff that no one asked for. TV has evolved so much since then, that the new minds Levesque brought in have clearly been wanting to change how the whole thing feels for a while now. The long, sweeping shots. The return of steady cam. The very recent dumping of the AR stuff too. Along with the change of booking, it's made the product feel completely renewed in a way that's different from where it was AND feel different from what AEW is doing. They want you to feel that WWE is the big leagues, and they can pour money into things like 8K cameras (see Bayley's entrance on Friday) to make themselves seem cinematic and much less dated than even a year ago.
  20. Per Woj, the Bucks are "planning to be without Giannis" for at least the start of the Pacers series. They hope he'll be back in a couple of weeks. @Zimbra can be heard weeping as we speak.
  21. Also... this is going to be a thing. QR code during the tag match. Puzzles on the web. etc. The Twitterati think it's Alexa Bliss. But the symbol they showed was a indicating a duo as it was the symbol for noted binary planetoid Pluto & Charon. (Unless it's something like Alexa and Nikki Cross, but... eh.)
  22. While the trope of an outside attack will probably never die, I'd like to point out what an incredibly pleasant surprise it was for Jey to find Sami outside. I was 100% convinced he was going to walk out to a thumb to the throat and a Tama Tonga beatdown. And as Gregg put it, there's definitely a few boys and girls in the crowd that will love this thing forever. Hell, I fully expect 10-15 years from now hearing some new wrestler say how they were there when Sami came through the crowd. Triple H Forever!
  23. We're officially 100 days away from Paris. The biggest issue right now is the organizers are going to need to figure out something for the Triathalon. Original plan was to do the swimming portion in the Seine. However, as anyone who has ever been to Paris probably could have told you... clean up isn't going well and the locals are getting really pissed about it. As it is right now the river is NOT fit for swimming. Unclear how they'd modify it if the river isn't ready for July.
  24. And only 15 years past when he should have. I'm so happy for Phil, Eddie, and basically anyone in the NYC metro area that's ever had to listen to John Sterling call a baseball game. (Except you Suzyn Waldman.)
