  1. Mike Bennett and Tom Lawlor have the exact same voice.
  2. I made a Twitter account for these. I've got a bunch ready to post there so I won't spam the thread myself every time I think of new ones, but here's a few i'm especially proud of: Stephanie McMahon = Champions Methane Hunter Hearst Helmsley = Halt Her Ruthless Enemy All Elite Wrestling = I Sell Elegant Twirl Wrestling Observer Live = Loving Terrible Swerves AEW Ratings = Teasing Raw
  3. If you were in a shoot ladder match, what would your strategy be?

  5. Talking of Sting-adjacent angles... it only recently struck me how strongly he resembles (physically and in promos) Max Headroom. It makes me wonder if he waited 20 years too late to mimic a wacky pop culture star in the Joker when he could've gone heel in the early 90s (let's say if WCW put Lex on top as a babyface). He could've stuck with his same irreverent, vaguely nonsensical promos that made him too cheesy a face and instead been an overly slick sycophant satire of Hogan - call it a dayglo nWo. Has anyone ever done anything remotely Headroom-esque in the world of faux-fisticuffs?
  6. I think it's important to draw a distinction between near-falls (finisher < kickout) and 'wear-down' pinfalls (a la Flair/Steamboat). I don't want to sound too Al Snow here, but Terry Taylor be damned: the goal of a wrestling match is to win, usually by pinning the other guy. You can only pin him on the ground. So if you ever knock a guy down, and don't go for a pinfall, you're not trying to win. I always go a little crazy when i see someone knock the other guy down, then pick them up, knock them down again, and again, and again... This isn't a video game. Wrestlers don't have HP. You can quickly, at any time, with the 'right' pin (leverage, blah blah blah).
  7. I'm glad this rankled someone else too. I get that the Bucks are as modern as modern can be, and kayfabe has changed, but to say something that basically translates to 'real life brothers, because they're not fake brothers, because this is all fake, remember?' in a promo is pretty jarring. Maybe there's something to be said for all the Being The Elite filming making it harder for them to switch in and out of kayfabe, so it all becomes one big hodgepodge.
