  1. At the NEW show in Rostraver (Pittsburgh) Enzo and Cass had a consistently long line of people to meet them paying $40 for an auto or $60 for Auto and picture. The line always had a good ammt of people waiting to meet them and I'm sure they made a good ammt of $$. Stroman could do this and maybe power slam a local indy guy every 2 weeks and make some bank if AEW or NJPW don't want him. Why go back to WWE? I questioned Hero, I question Zelina,. Why go back to a place that didn't want you the first time? Especially when it's only been 2 months. Companies don't suddenly admit "oh we fucked up come back to us" And even if they did why would you want to go back?
  2. Kingston apologized but I think he was forced to. Could be wrong. I love Norm Connors and it wasn't his fault or responsibility. It was all on Eddie. There are better ways to get heat. I know a lot of people root for him as if he's the underdog but I lost a shit ton of respect for Kingston that night.
  3. The Hero- Kingston beef definitely started with Marciano. Claudio and Hero are like brothers so it's natural that he would have Hero's back. I remember Hero saying that his whole life is wrestling and questioned Kingston's commitment. This was back in 04 or 05. My wife used to enjoy wrestling. Not a huge fan but would watch it with me, knew enough of it to know who was who. I took her to a show that had AJ vs Punk, Southern Comfort vs Midnight Express, Sabin vs SJK, just a stacked card. Our own @Gormanwas on commentary I believe. Well long story short Kingston fell outside the ring and landed by my wife's feet. She backed up and he said "you should stay in the kitchen" no big deal. Well a few mins later he spat and it hit her. She was furious. To this day she refuses to go to a show. Fucking killed wrestling for her. Hero on the other hand is a different breed. I'd venture many of us spent time chatting with Chris back in the AOL messenger days. He was always polite and if he saw you at shows he always had time for pics or to chat. He could come off as a dick at times but all humans can. I was a huge fan of his early IWA-MS work and always wanted to see him get a good WWE or NJPW run. He and Claudio could have easily won tag league and been huge together in NJPW. WWE not bringing up Hero and tagging Shemus with him instead will always be a head scratcher to me.
  4. I have Xbox game pass and PS Now and feel i won't have to purchase as many newer games as both seem to cover a lot of ground. Xbox has all the Yakuza games including the newest like a dragon, they also have a deal with EA Access so you get all of the sports games. They just added the newest UFC. Between Game Pass and PSNow I feel set. The only game missing that i'd want right now is the newest RE.
  5. I bought the Ennis Omnibus books 3 of them and I instantly wanted to read more Punisher. The writing, the art, I was hooked. Ebay is a good place to find them. I bought all 3 for roughly $180 total. Also feel free to DM me as I have another option you may be interested in.
  6. Brian Myers vs Omega? That will put the asses in the seats. Does anyone possibly think Myers has a snowballs chance in hell of winning this?
  7. So for all the positive feedback coming out of MITB Raw just killed it all. My timeline was littered with Raw hate. I'd venture to say 90% of the fanbase thought Becky would close out the show with a stare down with Charlotte. Nope. The ending was just weird. How many weeks until Karrion Kross becomes "Kross" maybe that's why Nikki Cross had the name change. Vince must have saw Jeff Hardy trending Sunday and figured the fans wanted to see him pushed. Only way to explain his win. Keith Lee coming back in his home state to lose a non title match is pure WWE. Think about this guys and gals, WWE is promoting their biggest summer show on a 60+ yr old man and a less than part timer. This is what happens when you refuse to make new stars. How jealous must Pritchard and Dunn be of HHH. They kill everything he creates. Kross, Lee, half of the women, Andrade, Black, they split American Alpha prior to the injury. it's the reverse Rumplestiltzkin effect. Everything HHH turns to gold they turn to shit. How do you end Summerslam to send the crowd home happy? Cena isn't beating Roman, Goldberg winning would be a huge mistake unless Big E cashes in on him which is really the only viable option that would make sense. I can't possibly see the women main eventing a show that has Cena-Reigns on the card.
  8. Get A DUI get rewarded. Sounds about par for the course. I guess they stopped catering to the stockholders.
  9. I was at the Juice/NZO match and it wasn't too bad. Before the show you could meet Sgt. Slaughter, Carlito, Lex Luger, Sam Adonis, NZO, Cass, and a few others. Poor juice had 0 line at all. Was the modern day Virgil.
  10. This was exactly my thought as well. Flip lost but gets a title shot at the next show? Makes zero sense. If he couldn't win this match why would anyone think he could beat Bandido? They have done this all the way back to Gabe and it's head scratching to me. Otherwise it wasn't a bad show. Taven and Vincent in a cage to main event a show? Not sure how well that well draw. They should have had that match in the Boston area.
  11. A couple more to add would be Rick Rude, and Mr. Perfect. Rude had decent matches with Warrior. Some could argue some of Warrior's best work. His work with Sting was great, his work with Steamboat was great, hell the Jake feud wasn't bad either. Mr. Perfect had excellent matches with Bret, Shawn, Warrior, and Hogan. Almost a WWF version to Flair where he could make whoever he was in the ring with look better. Dare I also add one of my favorite's as a kid and say Ted Dibiase. Million Dollar Man could go. Was one of the great in ring WWF Heels, but his pre-WWF work is stuff of legend as well.
  12. I was lucky enough to meet Paul. Was a nice guy to me. The crowd heckled him because his in ring promo took awhile too long and it was sad to see. I was also at Fall Brawl 2000 when he was injured Always a fan of his and he had one of if not the best piledrivers in the business. RIP Paul.
  13. I remember Mark was on Days of Our Lives for a while and then did pretty good on Boston Legal but other than that he was the kiss of death. Poor guy had horrible luck.
  14. I liked when this was an action show on FOX. Was cancelled way too soon.
  15. I think Brian gets a pass. He was in a horrible wreck that crushed his ankle. For a high flyer that is the worst possible thing that could have happened. His promo work was still head and shoulder above any one else in the WWF at the time not named Steve Austin.
  16. July 1st and still no classic footage announced. Not liking the looks of this.
  17. I think the Jay Lethal stuff was forgotten. Didn't he hit on Kelly and another girl? The one from House of Truth (why can't I remember he name, smoke show) Have to wonder if Dalton Castle wasn't with ROH would he be in the Orange Cassidy spot?? A Dalton-Orange feud would be fun.
  18. Wasn't Quantam Leap on after Prime Time? And USA Tuesday Night Fights for Boxing fans
  19. Trae Young is the biggest fraud. Guy fucking leans in on every shot to draw a foul. Pussy move if there ever was one. Guys in the 90's would shit all over his style. He needs to toughen up like John Starks. John Starks shot the 3 with pride and dignity. Never once heard anyone call John Starks a fraud. Hell remember the cartoon WayanHead? Who did they idolize?? John Starks, that's who.
  20. the one night I decide to grab wings and beer with friends and they do this. UGH, DVR'ing it I guess.
  21. LMAO Batman is trending on Twitter, but you all owe it to yourselves to see why.
  22. So IWC has an annual show where the champions face random opponents selected by a reset button. The show is happening now on Fite Tv and Bill Collier is facing Mance Warner, and Matthew Justice. Wild to see it as I was just reading this post when both guys were selected. Mance has never been in IWC and Matthew Justice has been gone for 5 years at least. Also the reset button had Bushwhacker Luke in a tag title match. The guy is in his 70's and still had the crowd going nuts. Henry Godwin also was in a battle royal. Not a bad show. Brit Baker showed up to make a save as well. Talked to her earlier in the day as she was at a comic con here. She said the Saturday AEW show with Omega-Jungle Boy will be "can't miss"
