  1. It's also pretty amazing how our concept of what a "big guy" and a "small guy" is has changed. Growing up in the 80s, guys like Hennig, Hart & Michaels were considered "small" wrestlers. But I watch them now and those dudes were pretty fucking big. Hennig was a beast.
  2. He generated that mass during his stint in Dragon Gate. I remember him showing up to wrestle Steen in PWG and fans were chanting "you got huge" and "PAC Lesnar." It's also a match I specifically recall for "THIS IS WRESTLING, YOU FUCKFACE!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdWEpbBjJ4g
  3. Anybody listen the the newest one yet? The guest is Vader but he wasn't great on Austin's podcast so I'm hesitant.
  4. Please. Most of the guys in that list got roided up in order to qualify for a world title push. One of them was so roided up he died. Get out of here with this disingenuous bullshit. There's a difference between using steroids and having a roid frame. That's what I meant. None of them looked like The Ultimate Warrior or Hogan or Diesel or Taker or Kane. There are plenty of smaller framed guys/shorter guys who had big runs. Your point was Benoit, Eddie, Rey, blah blah "prove" that Vince likes more than just muscle guys. My point is that Vince wouldn't have pushed any of them if they hadn't become muscle guys. Fuuuuuuck. You are the most willfully obtuse person here.

  6. Don't sleep on Finkel's White Guy Lip Bite. The dude is seriously into this shit.
  7. That was the second best part of that podcast. The first: Dave has a friend who knows Putin. That friend can vouch for the fact that Putin is really smart. AND REALLY EVIL. I fucking died.
  8. Well, big 4 TV execs don't know shit, creatively-speaking. They are extremely risk-averse and just go for what's proven, what's safe, and what appeals to the lowest common denominator. Why push the envelope when every iteration of CSI/NCIS/L&O draws eyeballs? And they wonder why we flock to AMC, HBO, Showtime, etc.
  9. LOL @ taker turning into every crossfit and pseudo crossfit bro you see at the gym with his beanie hat and tights/knee socks strategically covering his deer legs. I wonder if he did kipping pullups or perhaps moved a big tire later.
  10. The best villains think they are doing what's right. (Doom, Ra's al Ghul,...) Why did it take this long for someone in this thread to say this?
  11. From what I recall, Baltimore's Sinclair-owned Fox affiliate -- the flagship station of their company -- was (still is?) the only non-union station in the area. Not because of their political leanings -- though I'm sure that helps -- but because being non-union means they can have salaried employees work 60 hour weeks with impunity and allow interns to do technical work that paid staff should be doing. Is it any wonder that ROH was turned down when they asked execs for more money? I'm surprised Sinclair doesn't just ask Delirious to train their interns to wrestle.
  12. Sinclair is awful and I don't really see much of a future for ROH. Everyone I've known who has worked for them (I used to work in broadcasting in Maryland) has told me nothing but bad things, especially regarding how cheap they are. I'm seriously surprised they shelled out the cash to switch to HD. They probably got a barter deal. I just Googled "sinclair broadcasting cheap" and found this awesome thread.
  13. When he wore the brown tights and the not-short-but-not-long ("shlong?") hair, that was the worst. End thread.
  14. Highly unlikely. The doctor is not suing UFC, he's suing a UFC independent contractor. The is no way UFC would want to get involved with this.
  15. Slaughter refused to tell Bush where the WMDs were hidden despite intelligence gathered during his time as an Iraqi sympathizer.
  16. Holy shit. I need to hire Jimmy Hart to jump around behind me at work, maybe in a meeting, cheering me on via the megaphone. "YOU GOT EM BABY!!! HAHAHAHAHA!"
  17. I remember the old green board where you didn't even need a login and how it was ruined by Feinstein spam one night. *wipes away single tear*
  18. I figured we'd get a look at Mike's past when he said he was from Philadelphia and then, later, wistfully said something like, "nobody wants to leave home." I got the impression he was talking about not just the Kettlemans and the bookie, but himself as well. I think he was forced to leave Philly and we'll get to see how. On a side note, I saw a very young Mike in Gremlins and Beverly Hills Cop in the course of a few days a few weeks back.
  19. Closet racist limousine liberals who throw a bone to minorities once in a while so they can pat themselves on the back and be all self-congratulatory about how progressive they are? "I can't be a racist, I gave an Oscar to that fat black girl in Precious!" I definitely believe that. But then, why not Selma? Why wasn't Selma their "black friend" this year? That's where the other explanations come in.
  20. Please explain "the problem" as it relates to Selma Minorities are nominated some years and win, some years not. You can't fall back on the lazy argument that the whole academy is all old racist white men unless minorities are consistently left out every year. Hollywood is supposed to be a bastion of liberalism EXCEPT during Oscar season, when it turns back into an old white men network? You can't have it both ways. I prefer the following explanations: 1. The academy simply didn't like Selma as much as the competing films. 2. The academy members thought the other members would vote for Selma en masse so they were free to vote for other films and actors. Enough academy members did this and it effectively split the vote ("I thought you were voting for Selma. Oh shit.") 3. The producers of Selma either didn't campaign enough or campaigned too late. Personally, I saw what the subject matter was and noticed that Oprah was involved and I said, "fuck this shameless Oscar grab bullshit" but that's just me.
  21. That's like a crackhead running a...uh...place that sells crack or whatever.
  22. I thought this episode was kind of weak. Outside of the Mike involvement and the final discovery of the family mystery, I thought it was a little slow and tedious, like it was a half hour of content stretched to a one-hour show. I hoped this would be the end of the Kettleman family storyline so I was bummed by the preview of next week's show. I loved Breaking Bad so maybe my expectations are just too high. There's also the problem endemic to all prequels where we all know how it ends up and we're getting impatient to get there. Who wants to see Darth Vader as a kid, after all? I remain cautiously optimistic but there's no way they stretch out the transformation to Saul Goodman beyond season 1, right?
