  1. Have they ever said "no DLC"? I still say XBone and PS4 gets some sooner or later - too much money to leave on the table - but they won't fool with 360/PS3 because that'll be more incentive for people to make the switch and buy what is practically the same game twice.

     

    There is the matter of wanting to get moving on other titles, but they could just hire more staff, I'd think.

     

    I have a 360 and probably no plans to go next gen for quite some time :(

  2. Someone on PWG's forum mentioned that he talked to Cedric & Ciampa after this past weekend's show and they told him Fish, O'Reilly, Cole, and Elgin are done with PWG.  So there may be something to the "ROH is going to start locking guys down" stories.  Or it might just be guys talking out their asses.

  3.  

    I still think it looks like he bladed. As I said, he would not have done it without approval. Gigging the bridge of the nose is done to achieve such an effect. If he did, more power to him. If not, it was some sloppy punching.

    Rev, I've watched a lot of your work from your ring days for Carmine in Milwaukee, I've read some of your writings in your old Clawhold mag, and I respect your opinion... But you are wrong here. Owens was busted open hardway. CJ Parker even posted a nasty photo of his hand on Twitter mentioning it was split open to the bone.

     

     

    The alleged deep cut into Parker's palm that he posted a pic of online was clearly a work.  He painted a speck of green on his palm and they did the rest with computers.

  4. @TheRock: @FightOwensFight Congrats on a helluva debut. Very happy for you homeboy. Stay humble and hungry.. and see ya at the top! #SunsetFlips4Life

    Have Rock or Steen/Owens ever explained where they got to know each other at? I can't imagine Rock ordering PWG DVD's. It's one of the weirdest friendships in wrestling to me.

     

    No idea but I recall someone telling a story of the Rock saying (before he completely understood who Steen was), "I really like this Killsteen guy."

  5.  

    The crazy thing is that this is basically the same exact thing that happened with Darren Sharper a couple of years ago.  He was accused of drugging and raping a woman, and the more they investigated the more women they found.  Sharper was even drugging and raping women, who admitted that they would have had sex with him otherwise.  This is seemingly something some people are really into...even when women are ready and willing they would rather drug and rape them.

     

    What he said.  In the 60's and 70's, Cos was already an icon and he could probably attract women on rep alone even though he was a pretty handsome guy..  Why resort to roofies when you probably had women of all creeds and colors that would probably sleep with you on demand? 

     

    The use of a modus operandi screams "serial predator."  The Playboy Mansion was a hunting ground.  He got to groom his victims.

     

     

    This is the really disturbing thought I keep coming back to as well.  Just as you say, he was rich, famous, not bad looking.  The guy would have no trouble getting his pick of women.  Which means drugging and raping women is just something he's REALLY into. 

     

    I'll say it again for emphasis:

     

    Bill Cosby's particular fetish, the thing that really gets him off, is drugging women and then raping them. 

     

    Holy shit that's not too many steps from "it places the lotion in the basket" territory.

  6. Does anybody know what the story is with Drake Younger?  Did he just not fit what they wanted but he took a job as a ref for some stability?

     

    You know NXT is awesome when the opening match referee is better than a good chunk of the wrestlers on the main roster.

  7. If USA wants them to do 3 hours on Monday, is it too much to ask for them to run 1 hour of NXT and then 2 hours of Raw? 

     

    That's an amazing idea, except Vince would fuck up NXT because it's not sports entertainment enough for USA in his mind.

     

    Incredible show and I have to echo the sentiments of others who are dreading any of these guys being called up.  How the hell can the same company that produces three hours of hot garbage that I could not give two shits about on Mondays make something this awesome?  There is serious need for an overhaul of the main product because the "minor league" is outdoing them in every way.

  8. They need to wear brighter colors for some contrast.  Puma stands out fine but so many other guys are wearing dark colors that it just looks muddy.  Cholo getting slammed off the top rope looks like that time your local zany weather guy wore a green suit for Halloween.  All I see is arms and a head.

     

    That arena is so dark and dingy Buffalo Bill put down his lotion, poked his head out of his torture dungeon and said "god damn that place is dark and dingy."

  9. Thinking about it just now, I think the problem is Wrestlemania is during the first third of the year. In traditional wrestling, you always built up your long feuds for the end of the year.

     

    "In traditional wrestling...."   

     

    This is the 31st annual edition of this event.  What's your definition of "traditional wrestling?"

  10. Are we following this Sony Pictures disaster? Some hilarious PowerPoints out there. By hilarious..I mean funny but also sad. These are supposed to be hundred million dollar movies not a fucking C- high school presentation.

     

    Aside from the truly awful PowerPoints is the confirmation of what we already knew but didn't want to admit:  that movies, which people love and revere as art and can be a huge part of our lives, are just another investment to be focus-grouped, merchandised and micromanaged until they become nothing but lowest-common-denominator revenue generators, no different from Big Macs or 4-ply toilet paper. .  Sure we all knew it was true but god damn, reading some of those slides and analyses was just disheartening.  "Film" and "art" don't mean shit to these guys.  It's all about how we can make our most risk-averse investment and still separate the marks from their money. 

     

    Some gems:

     

    Calculating the "risks" of the "Annie" remake, they actually list "casting apprehension."  OH SHIT THE NEW ANNIE IS BLACK.  HOW IS THAT GOING TO PLAY IN GREEN BAY???

     

    Stressing the need to keep focus off America-centric topics while promoting "White House Down."  White.  House.  Down.

     

    Urging the people making commercials for Elysium to downplay the sociopolitical subtext.  The guy's previous film was a sci-fi retelling of Apartheid.  I think we all knew what we were getting.

  11. They need to turn the MITB ladder match into the "BRASS RING" ladder match. Dudes can fight over precious and he who possesses it can pull the brass ring from their trunks and wallop dudes to victory.

     

    Replacing the briefcase with a HUGE brass ring would be fucking amazing and if WWE doesn't do it, some other company should rip off that idea.
