  1. I'm all in on The Hurt Business and Lashley is finally looking like a world beater. Bonus for finally finding Shelton something to do. Who the hell would have thought MVP randomly showing up at the Royal Rumble would lead to him being one of the highlights of Raw? And the underrated moment of the night had to be Lashley choking Ricochet and Alexander only for Ali to come barreling over the top rope and knock the shit out of Lashley. Great six mand and give me more of this. And please never break up heel Sasha and Bayley. They are awesome together and as much as I like them both we will never hit the highs of the Takeover matches again. This is gold. Keep it up
  2. great episode of How Did This Get Made.
  3. Was this when he was trying to get the world shittiest arm submission over? I remember him having a move called the Barely Legal which the announcers sold like he was going to tear some poor son of a bitch's arm off but it just looked like he was bending the arm ever so gently. This always used to make me laugh my ass off but I can't remember what point in time this happened
  4. This. This is why I love Big Dave. Anyone else(and I include me)wears that outfit and you are officially a thundering douchebag. Big Dave ROCKS that shit and dares you to say otherwise. Ill bet my house he's wearing skinny jeans and wingtips and looks better then I ever will on my best day. hats off to you, super duper dave batista!
  5. Man, Alexa is brave as hell for doing this. The wave of creepers asking to see her feet or some other bizarre shit is going to be off the charts. And something tells me the "Face Fuck me, Finn" lady is counting out the dollars for Mr. Reigns.
  6. @For Great Justice has a great point. I don't know how you can shake up where we are right now. Because the show itself was not bad. If you took this exact show and had it in front of a real audience I think it would be better received. A large part of the problem is that these empty arena shows just feel weird no matter what they do. Sasha and Bayley are working their asses off. Drew is coming off like a god damn BOSS and is making the most of what he's been given. Bobby Lashley needs to be giving MVP half his check, cause Montel is dragging him kicking and screaming towards finally being interesting. You can't really tell what's working and what's not since there isn't a real crowd. Plus you have the senile old nutjob with the attention span of a fruit fly changing things at will. And this senile old fool relies on a guy pushing 60 who has lived through multiple heart attacks. I don't know who this person is or where they are but WWE badly needs a fresh mindset and new ideas in creative. There is 100% a place for Bruce but I don't think head of everything is it. Say what you will about the AEW boys but they are at least younger and more open to fresh ideas. No, they aren't always good ones but they are DIFFERENT. We need different.
  7. Is this the most useless "run" anyone has ever had? Dude comes in for a two minute tapout and never seen again. I know he was hurt and all but WOW
  8. Could someone send me in the direction of that video? Just because I'm curious how that would even work?
  9. Batman Forever did give us the all time great real life Tommy Lee Jones quote that he "Could not sanction your buffoonery" to Carrey. I can't stop laughing just thinking of that conversation
  10. I loved the hell out of that Wardlow squash. Dude just mauled that poor bastard from the word go and looked like a damn beast the entire time. He's another Hager esque dude that doesn't need to be wrestling 30 minutes a shot. Just kill fuckers dead for 3-5 minutes and we all win
  11. So, the Viking Raiders thing......What the hell was the point? Are we supposed to laugh at these goofs driving around with a huge leg of meat and helmets? Did they reach into the box of gimmicks and get the comedy gimmick Revival was going to be saddled with? I'm not saying they have to be badasses and win every match. But I just can't fathom how that was filmed, everyone involved looked back at what they shot and said "yep, this is gold. Put this on television ASAP!" Such good shit, indeed
  12. (1)so do we know the legit reason Finn missed the show? (2)The whole Drake thing is weird. I get using real life situation into a story when dude has sympathy and all, but is there really a point unless he ends up winning? I know we are talking about a company who loves to kick people while they are down, but "Yeah, you're fired. But you still get to compete in this tournament. What? You lost again? Fuck, that blows, brah. Best of luck in your future endevors!" is some bad story telling
  13. All I have to say after watching these videos is that this woman is a treasure that must be protected at all costs
  14. So, as a Kentucky boy and a long time USWA mark it pains me to say this, but never put Lawler on commentary ever again. He’s not funny, he adds nothing and it’s just not a good look for the old white guy to be making jokes like “Raman noodle moonsault”. He shouldn’t be traveling right now anyway but we got to use him, talking head on network or something.
  15. 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
  16. So...is Gronk still champ or what?
  17. 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.
  18. (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.
  19. Malcolm/Stokely is a national treasure and must be protected at all costs
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  22. @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
  23. has there been an announcement as to when the full thing starts?
