  1. With the repeated mention of How Did This Get Made, might I suggest another podcast? "With Gourley And Rust" recently did a loose, two-part 237-minute covering of Sleepaway Camp. If you haven't previously listened to Matt Gourley and Paul Rust talk about horror movies, it's as cozy, comfy, and easy-listening as a horror podcast could ever wish to be.
  2. A buddy of mine is Richard McGonagle's nephew. I've never met the man who originally voiced Sully, but I've camped at the 30-acre property his family owns in Maine along the Saco River. I also LOVE the Uncharted games and have a huge crush on Tom Holland... but yeah that movie looks shitty to me so I'll just use the excuse to semi name-drop
  3. I didn't see it mentioned here yet, but according to a posting on Reddit, BAD BOY Hido has passed away.
  4. I want an OC upset over Mox in the tournament to give us Cassidy vs Dragon for a final.
  5. Danielson is the greatest alive. Fucking GREAT Hangman promo. Schiavone was gold during the MJF segment.
  6. This is exactly why law enforcement/anybody using any sort of "facial recognition" software is intensely flawed and dangerous.
  7. I'm assuming the sloppy typing is to fully get into character, right?
  8. Good wrestling show!!! Also, really loving the different venue choices. It's nice when shit isn't overproduced and cartoonish.
  9. Conti vs Garrett also on the Buy In, apparently?
  10. I mean aside from a few that were Asian, nearly every example posted in this thread is European white looking folk, so I think you're on to something...
  11. Excalibur is the guest on this week's Doughboys podcast, the third AEW talent to appear on the podcast about chain restaurants. If you've never listened, it's one of my favorites.
  12. Bryan Fucking Danielson was one of WWE's biggest stars for years and we are worried about the casual viewer knowing who such and such opponents are?!?!
  13. Simply put, if you don't want to bear any responsibility or face repercussions for private opinions, then keep them fucking private. There's no reason Gina Carano couldn't have kept her hateful bullshit to herself or maybe her tiny little circle of like-minded friends. Same goes for anybody with opinions that might offend or even harm another person or group of people. Keep it to yourself, it costs absolutely nothing.
  14. See this is how I feel about M'Baku! I'd rather him remain a bit of an outsider with his own agenda and not so beholden to the throne. They are both great characters who hopefully get fleshed out more and more.
  15. I don't think that was the point of bringing up death moves and kick outs... Think about it this way: we used to think the DDT was a death move, and realistically? Dropping somebody in real life with that could absolutely cause massive harm. Same with a piledriver. Somehow, as the years passed and people kicked out of THOSE moves, other even more dangerous-looking moves were adopted and eventually treated the same way. It's not that anybody is calling, say, a Canadian Destroyer realistic - it's that you seemingly can't actually have realistic ends to matches even with somebody being dropped in a way that would actually leave them hooked up on life support. If that doesn't clarify it, or I'm misunderstanding the original point, I apologize.
  16. Great post, @supremebveand I can only add one little thing: you mention how head drops for 2-counts are meant to bring realism to wrestling (unlike, say, a Stunner) but in real life that shit should kill or at least permanently injure a human. It's infuriating that they've gone far past realism into what is frankly superhero bullshit.
  17. I think you could also go with Danai Gurira, who's always a total badass. Shuri is so deeply involved with the technology of Wakanda, you could easily use that for the reason to keep her away from the Black Panther title.
  18. Somebody ugly-fied somebody else's idea... my wife randomly got this for me a few years back (in green):
  19. Is it bad that while I enjoyed Punk/Garcia a LOT, in the end I just wanted to fast-forward to see Danielson/Garcia? That shit is going to be SO good.
  20. Absolutely agreed with Tony, and yeah some of the older people are doing whatever they want with their appearances but that's just it, it's not micromanaged by the company or at least doesn't seem to be. I don't want to dig too hard into WWE because I generally prefer to talk about stuff I like, but with AEW it just all looks more natural and real. From the appearance of the talents to the lighting and sets and all of that, to me one show looks like wrestling and the other show looks like a cartoon. And hey, cartoons are fine if that's what you want
  21. It's probably been mentioned a bunch here and there, but I really love that AEW allows people to have gray hairs if they so choose. Punk and Henry immediately jump to mind. It's refreshing to see compared to like Drew McIntyre's ridiculously dark-dyed hair AND beard. Add in more regular body hair, women who have a variety of different make-up and hair styles, wrestlers not constantly being in gear... It's almost like they're actually human beings and not just products to support a brand!
  22. Hey while the more liberal people on this board are currently paying attention, I'm listening to news and politics podcast The Daily Zeitgeist at the moment and the guest today is comedian Joey Clift who is talking NJPW during the opening segment where they get to know their guests. So check that out if you are so inclined.
  23. ...he says, while having an "anon online internet persona where you presumptuously throw shade."
