  1. It's awesome how some people were speculating a Jarrett screwjob (either fucking over Hangman or swerving Danielson) and some kind of screwjob in the women's final, and the finishes were for the most part clean.   And now people are wondering how they're going to "get out of" MJF/Okada.  Almost three decades of WWE booking has really ruined the way some folks think about wrestling.

    Saw some things on the Twitter saying this whole Toni Storm and Mariah May story arc is a play on the 1950 movie 'All About Eve'.   Fascinating stuff.  

    Our own @Greggulator called it when the angle started.

    Anyway, excellent show.  AEW is cooking.  

    I absolutely love Swerve’s at the time inconsequential announcement of being on Team AEW eventually leading to Hangman joining Team Elite.  Perfect.

    Funny you should mention that because the movie has been undergoing a ton of reshoots because Sabra is a really big part of this and well........

    (for those unfamiliar, Google her)

    Ooooooof.  Jeez.

    When I first read your post, I thought the plot involved poisoned hummus.  Somehow this is worse.

    Man, that would have been career killer as much as the stable needed someone like that. The Million Dollar Corporation was just vortex of suck. Sid being in the stable diminishes him, and he is suppose to be feuding with Diesel before Mabel ultimately challenges Diesel. It also doesn't help they book Sid as this coward when he is suppose to be psychotic. 

    When your stable starts off with a WAAAAAAAY past his prime Nikolai Volkoff working a "down on my luck" gimmick, you're off to a horrible start.  Somehow they decided adding unmotivated Bam Bam Bigelow, damn near heatless Tatanka, and also washed up Bundy who hadn't been hot in a decade was the way to go.  Fucking New Generation era, man.

    Liked seeing Bucky and Falcon back together. Best thing about it. Liked U.S. Agent and Isaiah Bradley. Thought everything else sucked especially the baddies.

    Apparently there were a lot of late reshoots and a ton of editing to salvage it, as the original plot revolved around something bad being put into a vaccine, which had to be changed for obvious reasons.

    AEW it's supposed to be for the sickos, right? Go all in (heh) and just release a huge DLC for Fire Pro World. Christ, put the entire roster on there with a shit ton of new moves and parts that I will pay 70 damn dollars. 

    I was just about to post, "just pay Spike Chunsoft to update and reskin Fire Pro World."  But yeah, just do it with a DLC and that'd be good enough for me.

    According to Shane Douglas, there was an incident where Erik didn't sell something right or at least in the eyes of Cowboy. Once Erik came backstage, Bill went up to him and I believe slapped the everloving shit out of him causing Erik to look bewildered his dad would have the temerity to do that. Bill then said, "Now that's how you sell a punch."

    God damn.  Add that to the "Bill Watts is a piece of shit" list.  Really, "any grown man who insists you call him 'the cowboy' is probably garbage" needs to be in your hard and fast rules of life.

    Watching the Morishima tryout matches

    1) I'm feeling the "Brock Lesnar reacting to seeing Keith Lee" gif when I see how huge Morishima was at this time

    2) Imagine the world where Morishima is 1/3rd of the 3 Man Band group. For all the comparisons to Stan Hansen, he's really more of a Terry Gordy

    I heard Michael Hayes torpedoed Morishima's chances because he was salty at all the Gordy comparisons.  But I also read someplace that Vince was in a bad mood that day, saw Morishima, and ranted about "why are we giving this fat Japanese girl a tryout?!"  So I'm not sure which is true.

    WWF @ Johnstown, PA – Cambria County War Memorial – June 7, 1995: WWF Tag Team Champion Owen Hart pinned Chris Benoit at 10:14 after blocking Benoit’s victory roll attempt
    (this was a Wrestling Challenge taping, so footage likely exists)

     

    Benoit was led to the ring by DiBiase, either just for heat or because they were considering putting him in DiBiase's stable.

    The door is now open to them posting all sorts of dark matches on the WWE Vault. Except for Owen vs Kurt Angle.

    Now that Punk is back in their good graces, they could post the Basketball Shorts Punk and Guy I Forget vs the Road Warriors dark match from a 2003 Smackdown show I went to.

  9. I met Bill Sanderson, just the nicest guy, thanked me for remembering he was in Blade Runner.

    Met Ric Flair at an autograph signing, asked to shake his hand.  He did, but he looked at me like I had turds coming out of my ears.  He was probably still drunk from the night before.

    I met Kevin Steen before a ROH taping but he wouldn’t take a pic with me unless I paid him, and I had no cash.

    Axl Rotten lived in my neighborhood and worked at my local video store.

    I met NFL defensive lineman Tony Siragusa a few times, nice guy.  

    I met Don Ho.  He was cool but so old and with so much plastic surgery he looked like a wax figure of Don Ho.
     

    Saw but didn’t meet: Ned Beatty at a food court, Yaphet Kotto at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Eric Estrada at LAX.

    I’m probably forgetting some.

    I think my biggest wrestling dream match right now that can't happen is Bryan Danielson vs. Gunther. Bryan Danielson's chest goes red quick when chopped by Roderick Strong and Eddie Kingston, it would be something else vs. Gunther.

    Mount Rushmore choppers: Kenta Kobashi, Gunther, Ric Flair and Roderick Strong.

    Holy shit Gunther vs Danielson would be grotesque.

    Don’t have a link to the post but Riho apparently broke her arm in that match.

    Yeah, looks like it was on the dive to the floor where she came up short and Frost didn’t make up the space in time to catch her.  The whole match was a disjointed mess before that, as well.  I hope Frost doesn’t get punished for it because she’s been pretty good up until now.

    Reports are that a sequel to The Devil Wears Prada is in the works with Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt returning. 

    It will follow Miranda who's magazine and career are now in decline, and Emily as a powerful ad exec who Miranda now needs to keep afloat.  

     

     

    I hate this movie on a visceral level.  Just powerful people being god awful to powerless people, a “worship the job creators” anti-labor narrative where the big lesson is “Andi should learn to love to eat shit,” all wrapped in a fake feel good veneer with a tacked on lesson at the end.

    I'm pretty sure that the movie would be OK if they didn't recycle the character names from the first movie/comic.  

    I said the same in the Comic Movies thread...if this was just a Crow movie, that would be fine.  As the Crow movie, it's ridiculous.

    I saw a short trailer on Instagram, of all places, and is that the dude from the first XMen movie playing Sabretooth?

    It is.

    You guys better put some respect on the name of former WCW superstar Tyler Mane!

    If they're doing a multiverse thing, I'd laugh if they brought back Liev Schreiber as the X Men Origins Sabretooth.

    Appears Marko is now a youth pastor at a church in Olive Branch, MS. Hopefully he comes back again with the Christian storyline

    I had to re-read that a few times before I realized you were talking about Christian Cage and not advocating Marko should come back with a preacher gimmick.

    There continue to be some weird bookings. Like Rush essentially having a prolonged squash against Komander, while Fletcher and Takeshita struggle with Private Party.

     

    I'm assuming Rush just refuses to go 60/40 in JTTS matches.
