  1. For the record, I think Tessa is awesome in the ring and comes off like a legit star at all times. She's consistently one of the highlights of anytime I catch Impact. But, I just don't get where do we go from here with her as the world champion. Why do you even have a women's championship if your biggest star is challenging for the men's title? If her first feud is against Taya, what happens with the Knockout belt? I'm not against the idea of intergender wrestling on VERY rare occasions as a special attraction but when we get to title matches and world championships you just paint yourself into a corner. (Yes, I don't think Chyna should have ever been intercontinental champion). Asuka and Io Shirai are two of my favorite wrestlers right now but I don't want to see Asuka vs Brock or Io vs Bray. Her winning the belt(all the dumpster fire real like stuff removed)might be a great "in the moment" story but it just feels problematic as to where you go from here
  2. Wait, what? This is a thing? Has Sandman talked about this before because this sounds AMAZING
  3. Honestly I am stunned she would be involved with anything wrestling related. This episode and the Benoit episode are going to be must watches for me. Wonder who will be featured on the Benoit show
  4. Sweet Jesus, who did Swerve piss off to get such a crappy shirt? It's amazing the same people who make an awesome shirt like that Becky shirt The Natural posted can come up with...that.
  5. I don't think any of us are asking for him to be in a headlining spot, but god damn,if Liger isn't in the hall of fame then what the hell are we doing? How many guys on NXT, RAW, and Smackdown have been posting well deserved #thankyouliger moments on the social media machines? These damn kids today can't really wrap their heads around how important he is or how revolutionary he was but I know the first time I saw Jushin Liger vs Brian Pillman in WCW, eleven year old me was all "I NEED MORE OF THIS RIGHT THE HELL NOW" He's a no brainer to me and I can see Regal pushing for it. And he deserves it. Thank you, Liger
  6. So not only is there a shoe that is called My Feet are Killing Me, there is actually something called The Toe Bro? We are in the darkest of timelines
  7. Is it the best match ever? No. Is it mick's best match? No. But to a 19 year old punk college kid who looked up to and idolized mick foley since he attacked sting in wcw it was the most emotional match i had ever seen and one of my ultimate feel good moments in wrestling. And for all the shit i have given Michael Cole over the years, "hes been known as cactus jack, dude love and mankind. But tonight and forever mick foley will simply be known as wwf champion" was one of his best calls ever.
  8. Screw total divas. You stumbled on the next great reality show. Total Cena. John lectures the elderly about the hamper? It’s GOLD
  9. I think my favorite thing about the Cena-Nikki break up was when Cena announced that in order to get over Nikki and not feel as sad, he went out for scheduled social interaction with strangers every day for one hour. I think he even gave a specific time he did this. He's a strange lad, that John Cena
  10. I think the IIconics are great at their roles. They are not supposed to put on 5 star matches. They are perfect at the arrogant asshole characters they are supposed to be. Could their matches be better? Well yeah, but not every match needs to be wrestlemania main event worthy. Sometimes you need a couple of midcard assholes that the babyfaces can beat up to look good. Peyton and Billy fill those roles.
  11. I didn't know how much I needed this until right now. All the likes and then some for @J.T.
  12. As...distracting as they are, I give the man credit for going ALL IN on being a totally ridiculous looking douchebag(but don't you tell him that)that is 100% unlikeable and HOW DARE any of us lowly fans mock him. Man commits, got to give him credit
  13. Godfather's face when he told the story of Shango being dropped killed me. "What, I ain't Papa Shango no more?" I really wish these shows were longer.
  14. Oney Lorcan(and Danny Burch, for that matter)quietly became kings of the short but great tv matches where going in you really don't expect much of anything, but then Lorcan just goes into THROW EM UP mode and packs all kinds of fire and violence into a 5 or 6 minute sprint. Burch/Lorcan vs Barthel/Eichner is one of the more underrated matches you can find out there from the past year.
  15. @The Natural I just want to echo the love for WALTER vs Bate from the UK show. Bate just threw everything he had at that big ox and came SO CLOSE but in the end, WALTER was just too much. I, a grown ass man, was screaming at my tv for Bate to pull off the win, and felt for him when he just couldn't do it. Trent and Pete coming out to help him up after the match was a nice coda. Great, great pro wrestling.
  16. It's not peak level King but it's a good read. It has a lot of ties to the Mr Mercedes series of books so I get the feeling they may have to change some things around for the middle portion of the story.
  17. Honestly I wouldn't want Rhea to leave NXT. This woman is $$$ and I have no faith in Raw or Smackdown not to send that straight to hell. I think my favorite small moment of that match was when the ref went to check Rhea's arm during the clutch and Rhea grabbed him and shot him the mother of all dirty looks. It's just so rare and so refreshing to see the right person dethrone the champion(even though it was long overdue)in a great match for a feel good moment. Kudos to all involved and hats off to what was probably the best NXT episode since the network move
  18. This is just top level heeling and I love it! That's just a great "what a bitch" moment to rub that in that kid's face. *****
  19. Is Tarver checking out Miz's ass in that top picture?
  20. hey, wwe, gonna do you a favor. Sit this one out and let Dana and big Dave handle the twitter machine. You try to get in on the joke and you ruin it. You remember when “fandangoing” was a thing?
  21. I just want to say that the Muscle Man dance remix with Huskus the P.I.G. was fucking incredible. And the one thing I remember about this show
  22. @MoeCristyV.1.6 I just want to say that the Randy Orton gif in your signature really is the gift that keeps giving. Say what you will about Randy Bo Banders as a wrestler, but dude is a gif machine!
  23. He really does not get enough credit for the no way out call. You could tell it was a legit emotional moment for him. And the excitement was real when he’s cheering for Eddie as he goes up for the frog splash. I have so many issues with him, but dude does have his moments
  24. you can almost see the thought bubble above taker's head where he's deciding he's too old for this shit
