  1. I’ve never understood the “Andrade needs a manager” angle that both WWE and AEW have saddled him with. He’s flat out one of the coolest looking wrestlers on either promotions roster. Just subtitle his promos or let him be a silent badass, he’s already got that cool movie villain intensity. On Charlotte’s possible AEW name, I vote for ‘Lady Spartacus’. She would require to cut her hair obviously.
  2. The only person who liked that era was Kurt Sutter who I’m fairly sure based Sons of Anarchy on that whole period. I once won my efeds US title because the other guy didn’t turn in his roleplay in time. Led to an epic 3 day meltdown on the fed messageboard and numerous AOL chat summits. It eventually led to the promotion splitting in two. Good times.
  3. I tell my wife all the time. A horror flick can have as much blood and guts and I don’t flinch. (See the Evil Dead series). Much like wrestling I’m kinda numb to seeing people bleed. That said, the Saw / Hostel generation took that to a new level and the horror “flinch” was born in our house. We realised a zombie bite pissing blood means nothing but a weird Achilles heel cut is fucking brutal
  4. Thoroughly enjoyed Brock and Adam Pearce recreating Clarence Boddiker and Robocop’s “it’s Dick Jones” scene. If he had invoked Brocks secret prime directive then Brock would have left him alone. ”it wasn’t my fault Brock, I had no choice, it was Paul Heyman! Your a Brock!” ”yes, I am a Brock”
  5. If AEW ever did bring in Brawn Strowman Id only be happy if he was used as “Mega John Silver”. Like Johnny Hungy goes under the ring with a giant mushroom, out pops Brawn for 30 seconds, destroys everything and goes back under the ring only for regular Silver to reappear.
  6. Jesse Ventura rocking a Curryman t shirt would be something!
  7. 31.26 - that one I got at the end was “unmasked after lost to steiners”. Can’t believe it took me that long to get it.
  8. The Pentagon of Love (would watch) between Tony, Britt, The Budge and The Beaver Boys is really heating up.
  9. Now normally I’m not the kind of guy to backtrack on something I said 5 minutes ago, but check out this pirouette… I always believed TK was right.
  10. someone tell TK to step away from his keyboard. I get he’s all excited the Jags finally won a game, I am too, but this is just ridiculous.
  11. Glen Osbourne’s name always amused me. Ozzy Danzig was the way to go with that one.
  12. Even his podcast career was done before the main wrestling podcast wave. I’m amazed Onnit.com/Steve haven’t thrown megabucks at him to do another series.
  13. While it was an enjoyable fight, and I like Roberts, the judge that scored that 30-27 Roberts is next level bonkers!
  14. SD is still the best sports entertainment show on TV. The Lesnar / Heyman / Roman stuff is developing well. The Edge / Rollins stuff is generally all very good. Sasha and Becky were great. The whole run in the middle of the show, from Moss and Corbin’s lame dad joke act, to Boogs and Nakamura, Pat McAfee “no one cares about your stupid birthday Cole”, to Boogs playing the Street Profits entrance and then the excellent Profits / USO’s match, was amongst the most fun half hours of undercard I’ve ever seen on any show.
  15. This is a pretty interesting conversation. My sports viewing habits kind of mirror my wrestling viewing. Regular season I only really try to watch Florida and Jaguars (yes - I’m a sadist) games live, but I try to catch other matches if I can. I suppose that’s how I am presently with AEW which I’ll always try to watch live and the rest of the league is like the other promotions, where I’ll try to catch something if someone messages me saying “you see this game?” or catch up later if I hear good things. The playoffs are like wrestlemania season though, in that I’ll watch mostly everything, whether it’s good for me or not. With soccer, basketball, hockey and most other sports I’m quite happy to catch clipped highlights, similar to how I first watched a lot of Puro. Taking all that into account, I think I watch quite a lot of live televised sport but nowhere near the amount that I potentially could watch. I’ve got other stuff to do!
  16. It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta get down *with watching way too much wrestling* on Friday. - Rebecca Black, 2011
  17. Aubrey alluded to similar during this weeks Unrestricted podcast with 2.0
  18. Yeah I don’t think judging people by their wrestling viewing habits is a particularly healthy take. Especially since this week I have been watching some old 2001-02 IWA:MS and catching up on DDT I’ve missed over the last few years!
  19. It councils me, it understands, it talks to me… sorry, I couldn’t read that in any other way than Ortons theme! Also “welcome back, welcome back” to Chucky. Out of the wrestling game since 1998 but back and ready to go.
  20. He’s going to be an OG of the ICU if he carries on with that kind of behaviour for much longer!
  21. The Rock with the cursing. Oy vey. I prefer “it doesn’t matter” with Wyclef!
  22. I was an avid WCW viewer at the time, right through to April 2000. I distinctly remember the weird recap episode they had with Tony and Mark Madden around that time, (before the ‘reset’). Just them sitting in an empty arena. It was super weird. That’s burned in my mind as my departure point for Nitro. I had my last summer before college beginning around then and never went back to watching Nitro regularly, I would catch Raw 99% of the time from then on. I would read the 1wrestling Nitro write ups to see if there was anything worth trying to catch and think “yep, still sounds god awful’. As bad as RAW has been over the last couple of years it doesn’t come close to those Nitros in 2000-01.
  23. I’ve had the same story with all Conrad’s podcasts, listen for the first 3-4 months then give up when he he has to review a random Nitro or Raw episode. Ive ditched Tony, JR, Pritchard, Bischoff. Currently sticking with Jarrett as it’s covering a lot of ground that isn’t Raw / Nitro. Some insights into how TNA became so TNA-ish. Obviously none of it was double J’s fault.
  24. Walter always reminds me of Otho from Beetlejuice. I hope Vince doesn’t ever see that resemblance.
