  1. I think the biggest crime of the Netflix shows going by the way side is the loss of Daredevil, specifically D'Onofrio and Cox. They were both so, so good and it sucks that two such amazing portrayals aren't going to interact with all the other characters established in the MCU. I can understand that you can't bring everyone back, but if there is a way to work those two into a future project, PLEASE make it happen, Mr. Mouse
  2. So...is Gronk still champ or what?
  3. See, the thing with Edge and his "people just want to complain" is that almost everyone who has talked about this show is universally praising the effort of the wrestlers involved given these weird ass circumstances we are in. Let's be honest, would anyone REALLY fault them if they wanted to dial it down a notch or 3 when there is no crowd? I sure wouldn't. But everyone involved did the best they could. And everything Randy and Edge did leading up to the match was off the charts great. I am bored to tears by Orton but I will admit this has been some of the best work he's ever done. All that being said, there was a really good 12-15 match contained within this just ok 35 minute match. When there is no crowd and a lot of dead space to fill, less is more. Now if you take this exact same match, put it in a stadium setting with people losing their shit for it, I guarantee it comes off better. As it was in this environment, it was too long.
  4. (1)I love your list, @The Natural and just want to add to 24. Antonio Cesaro vs. William Regal. NXT TV, 25th December 2013 , is the incredible interview Regal gives to hype the match where he basically admits he's fucked. Cesaro is too good, Regal has too many miles on him and he knows how this is about to go. But because Regal is a FUCKING MAN, he's still going to walk straight into battle and even if he goes down, he's still going to go out a god damn warrior. One of my favorite things Regal ever did and I wish we could have seen more of him wrestling in NXT. (2)Those DIY vs Revival tag team matches are just modern tag team perfection and I can only hope Revival find a way to hit those highs again wherever they go. (3)While my brain knows the Sasha/Bayley 30 minute match is technically the better match, the shameless Bayley mark in me will always prefer the match where she won the belt for the sheer emotion where she finally won the big one. Such a fucking amazing match and I know Sasha and Bayley both are chasing the dragon of trying to repeat this feud, but I don't think it can be done. (4)Shield vs Wyatts at Elimination Chamber would be my personal #1 but there is nothing wrong with your list. Just beautiful chaos from start to finish and one of the great simple builds to a match that I've ever seen. Tremendous work by all six. Were this a DVD, I would so throw all the money at you, Mr. Natural. Great list.
  5. Malcolm/Stokely is a national treasure and must be protected at all costs
  6. So, as someone who has never seen Scarlett and has only seen Kross as The White Rabbit in Lucha Underground(that was him, right?) can anybody recommend some "Good shit" of theirs to check out?
  7. The Sons would have more potential if somebody involved could talk and explain what exactly the gimmick is, what they stand for and such. I have really vague memories of them doing one vignette on NXT time but i'll be damned if I could tell you one thing they said. Cutler and Blake work well together, and Ryker is...there, but put about ten minutes of thought into them and they could be a decent way to kill some time since WE MUST BE LIVE EVERY WEEK, PAL
  8. @J.T. Re: that spoiler tag on Underwater, that's really a thing? Cause now you made me want to go watch this movie again
  9. has there been an announcement as to when the full thing starts?
  10. I don't think it's as much of an issue that you can't connect Brodie to Uno and Grayson, it's that it feels like a completely different gimmick now. Everything with Uno, the creepers and the build up to Brodie's reveal was more of a cult. Now that we know who the exhaulted one is, it feel like a mafia gimmick almost. Which to me is fine. One of the things most universally panned in the entire run of AEW has been the dark order. And we can say what we want about this company, they are more willing then Mr McBoss and friends to change things up when something isn't working. Brodie is clearly working the kinks of this character out. AEW shows that it's ok to have faith in them to at least try and change a story for the better
  11. If there was ever a guy who had the chance to fill the giant shoes Jesse Ventura left behind, it is Chris Jericho
  12. I'm not opposed to Ronda coming back. As much of a god damn weirdo as she is in real life, she's arguably one of the best rookies to come down the pike in a long time. And there's still money to be made with her having unfinished business with Becky and such(if I had my way, rip off the Rocky movies. Becky=Rocky, Shayna=Clubber Lang, Ronda=Creed). But for FUCK'S SAKE, I am so tired of the Russo esque "all of this other bullshit is fake, I'm real" that keeps finding it's way back into wrestling. You can promote that the MMA crew have more street cred(like in Becky's promo where she talked about how "people like me don't beat trained killers like you")then your average wrestler but I don't give a fuck about who could beat who in a real fight. When I want to see real fights, I watch UFC. I'm just a jabroni mark without a life, but all I want is emotional investment in the two people fighting and a story that makes just a small bit of sense as to why they are fighting. People didn't like the boneyard match thinking Undertaker could legit beat Styles, they liked it because everyone involved embraced the over the top stupid of the entire concept and ran with it. It was different, and it used the "real" aspects in a way that made sense ("How old am I? What's my wife's name?") Go film another movie trailer about some giant tables with Dvon Dudley and shut up, Ronda
  13. As a Kentuckian who lives 15 minutes from the Ohio River, I can vouch for this
  14. I just want to second this. Phoenix elevates the movie through force of will, and the music and the look of the movie are top shelf. I understand that without the Joker/Batman references this movie probably doesn't get made, but I still think those were the weakest parts of the movie. I would have just rather see a movie about this guy and his descent into his own mental abyss and how that reflects on the world around him. He can still think he comes from rich stock, just don't make it Thomas Wayne. I will say, as much as I would rather see this movie sans comic references, I really like the idea of a DIFFERENT kind of comic book movie that they went for here. Its not your standard superhero(ok, villain) origin story, it's a different spin and I like the outside the box thinking.
  15. As you are a wise man who knows things, I must check this movie out
  16. Just out of curiosity, what did you see her in?
  17. (1)the whole "young enough" to carry the company line is dumb on their part because there is a difference between chronological age and TV age. Yeah, AJ is in his 40s but there's a good percentage of WWE fans who had never seen him before. He was fresh and new and more could have been done with him. Clearly no one learned anything from the Hogan/Savage/Hall/Nash etc jumps of the mid 90s and see how well the old men boosted the other side's business. (2)it's also so mind bogglingly stupid that it feels like no one there can see the point @joseph2112 brought up. You want Roman as your top guy, push the shit out of him. Fans boo him, turn him. WHAT THE HELL DO THEY THINK HAPPENED TO THE ROCK? We all booed the hell out of him, we got it out of our systems and realized Rock was awesome and everyone made stupid $$$. Is Roman going to be the next Rock? Hell, probably not, but why not see if he COULD be?
  18. I mean, my god this show is just two hours of nothing. Whether or not we like it or not(and I'm firmly in the not camp)I guess the samoans vs the king feud MUST CONTINUE. But y tho? Even if you were part of the contingent that booed the hell out of Roman, can we all admit he deserves better then this? Can we not find anything better for The Usos to do then throwing dog food? Can Baron Corbin just take a breather from TV for a while? I mean, this feud and all things about it are just DEATH. Otis/Mandy is entertaining but it feels like Otis loses IQ points and clothing by the week. Is he going to be able to form words by the time this date with Mandy happens? Bayley vs Naomi is at least a fresh matchup and finally gives Naomi something to do. That helmet she wore was so ridiculous it crossed over into awesome. I honestly cant remember the rest of the show.
  19. I think one of my favorite things about Walter is that his stuff doesn't look "pretty". Walter is not out there to steal the show, have a moment or put smiles on anyone's face. He's a monster who wants to hurt anyone who dares step up and challenge him. Nothing fancy, nothing over the top, just beating a man down because he wants to WIN. And as much as I love Tyler Bate, let him go visit Pete Dunne in USA NXT or stay here, but keep this man far, far away from the main roster. He's just so damn great and a top notch underdog babyface, but in a Shorty G world(hey,can you imagine THAT match?)he ain't amounting to anything on the main shows
  20. This is the thing that drives me crazy about Brock Lesnar. There are MULTIPLE interesting options and outcomes that one could go with for him being in the Rumble. But the powers that be have shown that when faced with an interesting option to go to for Brock, they immediately go in the opposite direction. We can all throw out stuff like "lolromanwinz" but "Brock Lesnar wins because FUCK YOU THAT"S WHY" has been Vince's go to answer for years now. I would love to be wrong and something new and exciting come out of this Rumble. I like Brock. I like having Brock around. But I don't care about WWE Champion Brock. I don't care about "the reigning, defending, UNDISPUTED...." interviews. I don't care about the spoilers from Heyman. Give me something new. Give me something I haven't see 500 times over the past few years.
  21. Already got my tickets for Louder then Life here in Louisville. Last year's Guns N Roses debacle aside, this festival has always been a blast to attend and can't wait to see Metallica both night.
  22. It's 3:30 in the morning and I'm trying desperately not to laugh as hard as I want to at this so I don't wake up the 20+ angry psych patients at work but this is all *****. Thank you
  23. "Don't FUCK with Querns" is quoted around my house much to the annoyance of my wife far too much.
  24. Late to the party but when you not only give us Tim Olyphantastic but he's in full Justified mode you officially have crossed the threshold into ultimate greatness. I love this show so damn much The "coup" that almost turned into the dance battle from West Side Story and Janet singing "It's simply the test' while Michael is playing the piano had me HOWLING. Can't wait to see where he go from here.
