  1. F1rst Wrestling does a pretty good job making an event a fun experience. Especially their Wrestlepalooza or other bigger shows. They’ll usually break the wrestling matches up with two different burlesque dancers and then either a band or rapper for the intermission. It really fits the scene here. Very fun.
  2. Holy shit. Double decker? I might manufacture this. There was a place in St Paul that had The Miracle On Slice. It was a deli sandwich with pizza as the bread. Their Philly Cheesesteak was so good that I usually went with that though.
  3. Applebee’s is an existential treat of the beauty of the mundane. If a culinarily casually fried Andy Warhol and a dollar bottomless Norman Rockwell had a baby that grew up to be in your local highschool sports teams as an important bench player, but still beloved. It is not simply an American restaurant, but the American experience is ingrained in the fibers of not just the concept, but the foot and physical structure of the building. Is the idea of Applebee’s a lie we tell ourselves so we can keep living? Maybe. But it’s one that still brings a tear to my eye. Thank you, Applebee’s. Bless you and your $5 Blue Bahama Mama.
  4. I can’t really find the data to support how many matches or if it was in multiple companies (I know of more that Cagematch doesn’t list at least), but I thought of Jerry Lynn vs Lightning Kid/ Sean Waltman.
  5. Chris Hero vs Eddie Kingston is another one I thought of. Rivalry spanning across IWA:MS, CHIKARA, CZW, IWC, PWG, ROH, and AIW.
  6. What are some great touring Indy matches? Opponents that matched up in multiple companies. Like American Dragon vs Low Ki in the early 2000’s.
  7. lil Octopus has SuctionCup Tentacle & Beak Disease. Poor guy had a very tough night where his mouth hurt and was struggle to sleep. So the two of us stayed up laying on the couch (then I was smart enough to bring his mattress to the living room) and we watch Zootopia and Finding Nemo on repeat all night. Last year he had bad Stridor and needed to be in the ER overnight. Father’s Day is cursed. My beautiful wife, Gazelle, is making pork chops though. So I’m tired but about to eat good.
  8. The modern Andre The Giant vs Stan Hansen
  9. Are you telling me we could get a Doctor Woods, phd gimmick?!
  10. My two brothers were much bigger than I was. The middle brother would be Kane and I’d be XPac and as he chokeslamed the gorilla stuffed animals I’d do the suck it cross chops.
  11. Does WWE own UUDD? EDIT: I missed @CraigH’s post where he said they did. My bad. also googled This.
  12. Next time you’re near one of the 1,536 locations, you should try one. Tell ‘em Octopus sent ya!
  13. Trust me. I wouldn’t lie. And if push comes to shove and I was under oath, I’d truthfully plead the fifth.
  14. Love me some Favorites vs GOATs lists. The one I did last night was more GOATy. I shall ramble a Favorites List I heat up a Jack’s Pizza. 1. Mick Foley’s personalities - especially the other personalities. There was something magic about them. The three faces each hit something in me that makes me so happy. 2. Ultramantis Black - I still go back and watch Neo Solar Temple promos. What a funny yet universe fitting character. 3. old man Kenta Kobashi - chop chop chop 4. Super Dragon - aura. I’d watch fan made YouTube MV’s of him repeatedly. 5. Samoa Joe - cool, dominant, mean. 6. Andre the Giant - He was just perfect to me. Such a figure, it’s hard not to love him. 7. Eddie Kingston - Before even really watching his matches I’d deep dive his CHIKARA (and other indy promos). I really fell in love with his character rising up AEW. I showed people at a bonfire his AEW debut promo. Lol, I rarely talk wrestling with non-fans but he got me to! 8. Eddie Kingston’s best friend, Penta - the epitome of fantastical. I just want to watch him be him. On paper, I’d likely not like what he does, but he does it so perfectly that he transcends everything you’ve ever known or believed in. It’s like the end of a Hallmark movie when you realize the lumberjack who loves hot coco and volunteers at the Christmas orphanage is a better boyfriend material than the cold lawyer for the Guillotine factory. 9. Bryan Danielson - the GOAT. I truly think he’s the greatest. I also find him teasing Ryback to be relatable and funny. This ten spot is tough. As a kid, alongside Mankind, my favorites were Ken Shamrock and The Rock. As a teen getting more into Indy wrestling I’d say Low Ki or Mike Quackenbush. As a man I want to include Terry Funk. Each one has made me very happy over the years. But I’m gonna round this off with… 10. William Regal, the podcaster - lol, I loved that. He was such a tough person to answer straight questions, but just let him ramble endlessly and you’ll have a great time.
  15. Wrong thread. The questions go elsewhere, but that’s fine. I was literally talking about appearing more comfortable as a character. I always thought he was awkward in WWE and he has a groove to him in AEW. Not about card placement.
  16. I need to get John Peyton on the phone STAT!
  17. I can confidently state that I do not have the class or talent to be a part of the Applebees employment team. But I can say that with each visit, when I am there, I feel like family.
  18. I had all sort of upbeat punk trumpets going off when I bit into those delicious Applebees Mozzarella Sticks.
  19. I’m pretty sure Olive Garden’s slogan is: ”Olive Garden - come for the bread sticks, stay due to the debilitating diarrhea.”
  20. Ba da Ba Ba Ba I’m lovin’ that I had Applebees yesterday
  21. If my main man @Matt D can be brave enough to derp it out I’ll ramble it. (Btw, WOAH Tenryu raised for you!!! If I recall, Fujiwara too!)!!!!! Going off the dome. I was doing GWE and making notes but switched over to my personal GME. So I need to derp out a more solid wrestler list. But here goes: (not checking notes. Going by heart 4 beers in , started adding olives to the beers) 1. Bryan Danielson 2. Terry Funk 3. Negro Casas 4. Kenta Kobashi 5. Mitsuhara Misawa 6. El Satanico 7. Nick Bockwinkel 8. Andre the Giant 9. Akira Hokuto (will likely be higher for me but I need to see more) 10. El Hijo Del Santo hmmmmmm. I’ll post this
  22. I started typing a list and shamefully deleted it twice
