  1. All this talk about IT and brass rings and, especially, hair, makes me realize that when Vince and company use a worker's "conditioning" as criteria, they mean this:
  2. Sorry but I need to see the hoodie's hair before I can commit to its ability to grab the brass ring.
  3. Good point. Also, that and many of the other silly Bond tropes were mercilessly parodied in Austin Powers so you probably can't come back from that.
  4. I'm really disappointed that the women don't have sexual double entendre names but that's what you get with Serious and Grim Bond.
  5. The whole "independent contractor" thing is a joke and it's a testament to WWE's power, the fact that wrestlers are too job-scared to fight it, and the fact that nobody cares about pro wrestling, that they can still classify their employees as such.
  6. That's a cool concept, playing with the timeline. Ah, why the hell not? But I liked T3 & T4 so don't listen to me. Also, Jai Courtney is a bobo Sam Worthington and that's saying something.
  7. Oh man, when Vince says their competition is everything else on TV that is just the worst kind of bullshit. Motherfucker the producers of Mad Men, Game of Thrones or, fuck it, even the most derivative Big 4 network hackery aren't sweating your fake fighting bullshit.
  8. I'd like to see Punk work a few indy shots just for fun. Punk in PWG, even for just one show, would be very cool.
  9. I remember working for Suncoast at a mall in Baltimore County in the late 90s and having to explain letterbox vs pan and scan CONSTANTLY. Nobody got it. Making sure kids didn't con their parents into buying the dirty anime and trying to explain to customers why we were more expensive than Best Buy. Good times.
  10. I thought the "16" was the number of current lawsuits, alimony proceedings and coronary bypasses he's up to.
  11. Back in the day, that was an amazing highspot and a perfectly acceptable finish. Those fans are marking out like crazed howler monkeys.
  12. Exactly. That was some marketing person bullshit bingo right there. If she'd discussed WWE's "ecosystem of content and brand initiatives," I would have won.
  13. At least when booking limos, WWE's travel department uses wrestlers' real names. My brother worked for a car service that frequently did business with WWE. He knew nothing about wrestling since the 80s so he didn't know about the wrestlers he had to pick up outside of the huge names like Rock. Once day he called me and said, "I had to pick up some guy named Oscar Gutierrez. Is he a wrestler? He's really short!"
  14. Reigns wasn't necessarily getting all of that when the Shield debuted. Ambrose was presented as the leader at first, but Reigns over time seemed to win the crowd over more. If what Punk said about the formation of The Shield is true, Reigns was the only non-negotiable member. From that you can gather that The Shield was always intended as the vehicle to get him over.
  15. That's why it's so disingenuous. "It" means is that you fit into their preconceived notions of what a star looks like and should receive a push. So Luger had "it," right? Or is "it" one of those after-the-fact deals? Like they thought Luger had "it" but since he flopped, I guess it turned out he didn't. Interview Vince at the height of the Lex Express and he'd say that Luger had "it." Interview him after Luger shit the bed and he'd claim Luger never had "it." It's purely subjective and absolutely fake. Or now we can go back and pretend Daniel Bryan always had "it" because he got over. Or is Bryan not over, just his chant? And if we only understand "it" in hindsight, why even use it as a barometer? Christ, I have a headache now.
  16. That's what I meant when I said they can make anybody a star. Reigns didn't "grab a brass ring" or have "it." Reigns was a guy they saw as a star due to his looks, hair and physique so they did their best to make him a star. He got the star push and the star booking. That's what's so maddening and phony about this "brass ring" talk. Put anyone in that same spot and -- let's do a conservative estimate -- I'd guess half would do just as well as him, probably more.
  17. I listened to the Vince interview after reading recaps and comments. It was boring as fuck,
  18. So the motel was so cheap they had a toilet but no bathroom sink?
  19. So half of the new shows on Destination America are from......outside the U.S. That's so TNA.
  20. I never heard that story about The Conjuring. That's amazing and also an indictment of the all-to subjective and easily corrupted ratings system. I haven't seen Joy ride in forever but it was definitely great.
  21. LOL HDTGM is the reason I watched that movie! Amazing episode and I second that recommendation for anyone who hasn't listened to it.
  22. No self awareness, born on third and tells everybody he hit a triple. Zero concept of what privilege is.
  23. Punisher: War Zone. There's a douchy gang of parkour guys and you think it's being built to a huge confrontation. That that happens. Now I can never see parkour anywhere without hoping one of them takes an RPG to the sternum. I felt bad for Morrison because he's a little gimpy on the 2-3 moves he did after that spot. You know his knees were like, "dude, WTF, we're 35 now."
