  1. I can absolutely understand VInce wanting to change Hayes' look. When it's the mid-90s and you're still walking around looking like the bass player for Runnin' with the Devil: A Loving Tribute to Van Halen, you need to switch that shit up.
  2. Throw in GIna Carano and you can relaunch WWE Films as one of those kind of studios.
  3. Keep in mind, after Vince's first ouster for improper hush money payments to women he used his power to coerce into sex he raped, Cena was photographed going out on double dates with Vince.
  4. Even Madame Tussaud’s wouldn’t have enough wax for that.
  5. I thought the story was he asked them not to re-up, but they did it anyway.
  6. Stolen from reddit in case you don't feel like listening to five minutes of Cena's monotone Wonderbread bullshit. Honestly, a nebulous wall of text is the perfect personification of this goof. Sorry for the delayed reaction, but I legit spaced out listening to it due to his delivery, and only really comprehended it when reading this. Just telling someone you love them, it’s a hill to climb, and we’ll see what happens Sweet zombie Jesus tapdancing Christ. His boss raped and trafficked multiple women, and this fucking human equivalent of cream colored paint on an apartment wall, this walking talking plain chicken breast made with no spices on an ungreased Foreman grill, is talking in terms of what a challenge this is going to be for his friend who he loves.
  7. Normally, a respectable tattoo artist won't go above the neck or maybe below the wrists so as not to hurt anyone's future employment prospects, social standing, etc. Darby walks in and the tattoo guy is like, "yeah, no problem."
  8. Seriously. Cena comes off like he's studied fervently at the Rock's feet to learn the secrets of becoming an absolute milquetoast brandbot.
  9. I had no idea The Gangstas used "Can't Truss It" in SMW. That's awesome. "Hazy Shade of Criminal" would have been better but that might have gone maybe a little too hard.
  10. Man, what a rough show this was. The Horsemen had just breathed their last gasp (for the time being) with JJ leaving after Tully & Arn had left a few months prior, so they'd morphed into The Yamasaki Corporation, which was a complete popcorn fart. Barry is on his way out (thanks for the reminder!). MX vs MX gets a blowoff match that includes one guy who was never in the feud to begin with because Condrey left before the show. The Michael Hayes singles push, which was trash, as he wrestles a masked Dave Sheldon. Sting trying to find his footing as a singles wrestler and getting no favors being asked to go 20 vs Reed. Road Warriors vs Varsity Club B team of Sullivan and Williams. Woof.
  11. Flair and Windham got 23 minutes, which is a decent length for my own tastes. I'll have to go rewatch the others but I seem to recall feeling like both guys were getting a little repetitive and dragging out the proceedings. Maybe I'll watch all three and write something about them in the WWE Network thread. Looking at the card on Wikipedia, holy fuck yeah we absolutely didn't need 15 minutes of Hayes/Assassin and 20 of Sting/Reed. Sweet Jesus. I would have given Lex and Barry at least 5 more. 10 for those two feels criminal.
  12. Maybe I was just kinda tired when watching it but I found the Flair-Steamboat series decreased in quality in chronological order. 1 was really good, the 2/3 falls one was overlong and booked weirdly, and the third felt played out.
  13. Thanks, guys! Yeah, my key issue is that the lower the squat gets, the more I bend and transfer the load from my quads to my lower back. Like half the exercise is really a back extension. I’ll research all these suggestions. Re: running, I do have a big front porch but not as big as it used to be! I’m 6’2”, low 260s right now but I was like 310ish last year at this time. My cardio is pretty great despite my build. The only thing that stopped me from going 10 miles yesterday was my legs getting sore after maybe 6. But I’m really happy with it as I was over 5 mph the whole time, even on one section that was mostly uphill.
  14. Hey guys, quick question. I absolutely hate barbell squats. I don't know if it's my build, but doing them really deep (like I guess I'm supposed) to just murders my lower back. As a dude who had a horrific disk injury a few years back, anything that strains that area is a strict no no. So I still do barbell squats, but with less ROM -- maybe 50 - 60 degrees at the knee, trying to stay as straight as possible without bending too much. Is this okay or would I be better served going with the hack squat machine instead? I could do leg press but (not humble bragging, really) I seriously don't feel like putting all those plates on. I feel like I'm not squatting "correctly" if I'm not going lower. Maybe I'm just in my own head. Let me know. Thanks! Also, after some holiday slacking and trying unsuccessfully to figure out outdoor running in the cold before getting the hang of it, I got more disciplined a month ago, dropped 6 pounds, and managed to run 8 miles yesterday, which is great.
  15. LOOOOOL I totally completed Power Wash Simulator while my actual pressure washer sat unused and my deck sat in desperate need of washing.
  16. Not sure about the theory of Prior putting the tongue there. Annie K was murdered long before episode 1. That's a long time for a tongue to sit there on the floor. Quick question for everyone who watched:
  17. That's like Marty & Shawn explaining to Verne that they wanted to be called the Midnight Rockers, and Verne thinking it was a rocking chair reference. That reminds me of Chuck Taylor's "whitemeat southern babyface who also happens to be antisemitic" idea. He's doing a post-match promo like, "I love y'all! Thank ya for supporting me! I fight for all y'all and I love y'all except the Jews thank ya'll goodnight!" All I can think about is the ignorant-ass T shirts in the early 90s when the Malcolm X hats were hot...the shirts with the confederate flag that said "you have your X and I have mine." "Star (of David) Wars" was right there!
  18. If you mean my post, it's not really a spoiler, just a cool thing that was pointed out by uber TD nerds when the ghost's wife mentioned his full name. He was only featured in an early episode and his identity hasn't had any bearing on any important plot points for the season. A far worse spoiler was perpetuated by Max themselves, starting an episode with a suicide trigger warning when there's only one character on the show that was really likely to take their own life. It didn't ruin the ep and I understand the need for such things, but still.
  19. Annnnnnd it's not just the whole "a guy with some issues is a guy who is probably going to shoot the place up" stereotype. It's everything else, too. All the toxic horseshit that society puts on you as a man. Now, disclaimer, society puts an equal, if not greater, amount of shit on women, too. But talking about guys right now...a man is supposed to not be vulnerable, to be able to take care of shit, to not complain, to not talk about feeling awful, or lonely, or anything like that. A man is supposed to provide and never complain about being needed all the time. I'm not supposed to be a self-loathing mess who is amazed I got through the day and somehow have a half decent life that I'm not so sure I deserve. I'm really happy men's mental health is gradually something people discuss seriously and without stigma. In general, I just hope we can evolve as a human society to understand that men don't need to be some certain way. And women don't need to be some certain way. We're all humans and we're all different, and expectations and comparisons rob us of joy and make life horrible. Anyway, thanks for writing what you wrote, and thank you to all you lunatics for being bros. I'm right here with you.
  20. He'll tear your soul apart! (if you put the laundry in the wrong hamper)
  21. All that was missing was Adam Cole burning a copy of the Observer.
