  1. I learned of his death this morning not from here, the news, or anywhere else, but while reading the GTA Online subreddit. Rest in peace to one of the greats. Aside from all the well known roles we've already talked about, his turn in Unlawful Entry is so good. Ray at his creepy, menacing best.
  2. Thanks @Blue Dragon for the old time game covers and ads. I love them in a "game cover vs the game itself," "what they advertised vs what we got" way, like it's the wrestling version of Yar's Revenge. Ricky Fighters vs Strong Bads was that generation's Midnight Express vs Rock n Roll Express.
  3. I only remember three things about Lundgren's Punisher: They didn't use the skull logo but they sort of cut Dolph's stubble so his face resembled one. There was a cheesy, cheap montage where he just shoots his gun left and right against a green screen while scenes play out. I think Lou Gossett was in it. It's funny I remember so little, because my high school friend and drinking buddy worked at a Blockbuster and brought that fucker for hangouts like every other weekend so I've seen it in full or in part a lot.
  4. Maybe they can have some crossover with Discovery's other shows. You know Dr. Pimple Popper would love to take a crack at Demonic Flamita's back.
  5. Really the only iteration of The Punisher that captured his psychotic "I am going to murder every bad guy I do not give a fuck" energy.
  6. Yep. They also said Rampage would not be the B show. I like Rampage a lot. It's an easy to digest, fun to watch hour. But it's totally the B show.
  7. Might want to spoiler that. It's SFW for me because I'm WFH but may be NSFW for others.
  8. You could post gotcha bullshit on one wrestler per day and be able to keep a clickbait trash site in business for years. Now if you excuse me, I'm going to download the sleaze thread and put in my resignation.
  9. I'm starting to feel like unless it's rape or murder or something at that level, maybe we just come up with an agreed-upon statute of limitations for people doing dumb shit. "Scour the web, videotapes, etc for regrettable dirt on people to stoke the outrage machine and get clicks" should not be a valid full time career.
  10. Of course! First Irishman you see in the springtime.
  11. Between O'Khan and O'Reilly, I haven't seen such wonderful Irish representation on a show since the days of O'Kada vs O'Mega.
  12. That cage match was note perfect. Simply booked and exactly what you'd expect. Pro wrestling is not hard. LOL @ MJF's Burberry ref stripes and Shawn Michaels tribute grape smuggling shorts. Spears wearing the same facemask as half the edgelord tryhards on GTA Online. JR shitting on WWF cage match stips of "run away to win" was great. LOOOOL at Wardlow yeeting that one dude into the netherworld abyss. The Page Punk promo segment was weird. Good emotion but the content was so incredibly non-specific and I have no idea what's supposed to be the point. When the announcers are working harder to tell your program's story than you are, that's an issue. Like others have said, Page is defending AEW from Punk why? We needed a lot more here. Just fucking weird. Jungle Boy needs to wear that belt on his shoulder. Around his waist we get a ROH Showdown in Motown situation and we don't need that. I popped for Jeff Cobb coming in. That was unexpected. When you never do DQ run ins, you can do effective DQ run ins. The Great O'Khan was not so great. Is his gimmick that he can hypnotize guys into putting themselves through tables? Because there was no contact between his hand on FTR #2 on that face claw. I hope Kingston stays with that gear. It looked cool. Marq Quen's dyed beard makes him look 65. Caprice! That's awesome. No makeup AND shoot names being uttered. Oh shit Deeb gonna die. Statlander going from unbooked to going all the way? Yes please! I'm a little tired of Ruby already even if she just had her best match so far vs Riho. And Soho vs Baker again would just be meh. I'd be cool with Page beating Punk and then losing it to Wardlow because that guy is hot as fuck right now. This Week in Alternative Medicine: Tony and Excalibur explain cupping!
  13. Looking it up online, it was night 2 of BOLA 2012. Their one night joke team name was "Team Statutory" and holy fuck 2012 was a different time and that did not age well. Oh and Drake Younger was on the other team and now I'm wondering what the record is for total number of "guys who turned out to be garbage human beings" in one match is. Did Michael Elgin ever team with Marty Scurll and Jerry Lawler on a fairgrounds show anywhere?
  14. The best part was when the American Wolves split up and one of them teamed with Strong and the other teamed with O'Reilly and in 2022 I can't, with any degree of certainty, tell you who teamed with who because that's how aggressively bland the whole deal was. Speaking of bland white guy traits, I've seen Davey wrestle more during his recent return -- he got his massive tribal tattoo lasered off and I'd love to know the story behind that reasoning.
  15. Seriously. Now I look at a burrito and the heartburn starts. :(
  16. God damn, what a show. It's crazy how they play with tropes and expectations (here and on BB). What I mean is, they're pulling off this clever plan and years and years of TV and movies have taught us to think "YEAH, that is badass! I'm rooting for them!" But there's this nagging feeling in the back of your head where you realize they're ruining the life of a decent guy. Howard confronting them with "why?" and throwing their petty motivations in their faces was a reckoning. And what came after drove the gravity of what they did home. This was not two downtrodden people pulling off a slick heist to stick it to the man. This was two very petty criminals ruining a man's life to a tragic end. The whole thing is very Breaking Bad-esque where you think you're supposed to root for this person because they're the main character, the audience's POV, and ostensibly the protagonist. And then they slowly turn into awful people whose motivations are less than pure. Saul and Kim are exactly like Walter White in that all had the opportunity to move on in life and get back on the right path, but petty moral failings caused them to keep on breaking bad. On a side note: what was that brief black and white part at the end? A short bit of the Gene story?
  17. I remember in 2012 when Kyle and Davey were teaming as very serious generic scientific wrestlers and then they did a one-night gimmick in PWG teaming with Joey Ryan where they both acted like slimy scumbags, complete with Kyle dousing himself in baby oil and doing the Rick Rude swivel as the fans chanted "SLEAZY KYLE!" It was wild seeing the dude show that much personality. A few years later, a match was booked featuring Cole & The Bucks vs Dalton Castle and The Boys. It sounded like an awful mismatch until "The Boys" that accompanied Castle that night turned out to be O'Reilly and Fish, wrestling the whole match in glittery masks, barefoot, in sarongs. So yeah, he's got great personality and charisma...it just took a while to come out over the course of like 10 years!
  18. LOOOOOL I actually had no idea Cinnabon sells "just the center." This means that my idea for Popeye's to sell just the fried chicken skin as a main dish is probably viable!
  19. I will never not recognize the Baltimore Arena 1) because it's my hometown building and the first place I ever saw live wrestling and 2) because of its weird-ass ceiling. It's apparently closed for renovations and I honestly can't believe it's still around, since it was built in 1961. I'm guessing not having a major league tenant means there hasn't been anyone to demand the city and the taxpayers build something new.
  20. Aw man, "special" shows that just looked like any other Superstars episode are so depressing. I was watching the first Royal Rumble (I know it wasn't a PPV) and there's nothing different at all about the setup. It just looks like any other show with the light blue banners with the yellow logo on them. Nothing says "this show is nothing special" like making a big event look just like a TV taping. Some people are into title histories; I'm into arena presentation.
  21. LOOOOL That reminds me...I was watching Wrestlemania 1 over the course of the past few days and noticed most, if not all, of Mean Gene's "pre-match" promos were obviously taped sometime before the show, most likely at a different TV taping. So many guys are wearing different gear than when you see them in the ring seconds later. The worst offender was Windham and Rotundo, who cut both cut dull, seemingly a quaaludes inspired promos that BOTH end with a variation on "we're going to the ring right now." But both were wearing their street clothes. My guess of these being taped at an earlier TV was because Bruno was literally wearing his announcer getup, complete with WWF logo blazer, but was wearing a sweater to the ring right after that. Need to check @Dolfan in NYC's excellent Mania review thread to see if he caught that,
  22. Yep, very Attitude era-esque with the babyface destroying the heel's belt. It's stupid because this promotion is at least somewhat booked more like it's actually a sport. But if this were a real sport, that's the promotion's belt and they wouldn't take too kindly to jizzing on it and smashing it with a sledgehammer IRL. We also had that dumb skit where Sammy and Tay destroyed Lambert's SUV with sledgehammers and that, too, felt about 25 years past its sell by date. A few weeks before that, they also had a blink-and-you-miss-it vignette with her wiping off the alien makeup and removing her contact.
  23. Loooool so the same plan they had for the women — job the tag champs to the individual titleholder(s). Who says creative has no more good ideas? These ticket prices, man. I saw Sting win his first world title for probably $20. Unless you got something better then that, fuck outta here with that shit.
