  1. I think hate is a strong word, but I have a strong distaste for everyone in the Kliq, outside of Nash's time with Alex Shelley in TNA.
  2. Whatever is wrong with Kylie, I'm glad she's acknowledging it and hopefully she can get whatever help she needs. I know firsthand how hard things can be, especially in the current environment.
  3. Punk is one of my favourite wrestlers of all time. I don't doubt that he was probably a pain to work with at times, but he was a great heel, was over like rover as a face, and just generally ticked all the boxes I look for as a fan. I'm glad he got out when he did, though. I bet he's a lot happier now than he would ever have been if he'd stuck around.
  4. I absolutely misread this and thought they were relocating the Thunderdome to Thailand.
  5. Johnny Curtis from NXT, with Melina and the current EC3, was excellent. "Why do you have chloroform?" "Why don't you have chloroform?"
  6. That's it exactly! He comes across as a guy performing a role, which is deadly for pro wrestling. Also, re: the cleanshaven picture - with his current facial hair he looks like Al Snow.
  7. Dolph/E/AJ was a great grouping. And you know, thinking about it, that 18 second debacle from the year before is still having ripples today. Remember, the fans were very unhappy when Batista came back and was being slotted into the world title scene instead of Bryan - so when it became obvious that he was going to win the Rumble in 2014, the fans became heavily invested that he not win it, and got seriously behind the other man in left at the end of the match... Roman Reigns. Even though it was obvious he was the intended breakout star of the Shield, I really think that the ending st
  8. I feel like Impact might be handling the crowdless wrestling the best by treating the Impact Zone as a pocket dimension, much like Wrestle House and the Undead Realm.
  9. Lance Hoyt Archer showed up on Dark this week, and I still don't get what people see in him. He doesn't carry himself like a scary monster (hell, Nick Comoroto did that better and he was the enhancement talent in the subsequent match), he has a crummy looking weave/ponytail haircut, and "The Murderhawk" is the sort of try-hard nickname Michael Scott would have given himself on the Office.
  10. Don't worry, in ten years Ali will get to have the MVP spot of leaving the company for years, then coming back to lead a stable of other forgotten pushes from the past.
  11. In 2009, Avatar was a smash hit beyond all expectations. Sam Worthington followed that up with Clash of the Titans - but then Wrath of the Titans basically fizzled, and that was the end of his career as leading man in blockbuster action films. If you were a Hollywood producer and kept shoehorning Sam Worthington into these big budget movies, you'd be a laughing stock. But in wrestling, you're Vince McMahon.
  12. I'm gonna catch hell for this, but he's not, he is, and they don't. When he started on the main roster, he wasn't all that over except through the inherent jingoism of American audiences. Over time he got over and was entertaining, but a lot of that was through the chemistry he had with his seconds, neither of whom came with him to AEW. And don't pretend that the whole Rusev Day push wasn't goofy. Sure, the fans loved it and latched onto it, but it was a comedy gimmick. He seems like a really cool guy, what with offering to pay people while they were furloughed, and he definitely deserved
  13. Any time I see "Worker was scheduled for a title match, didn't show up, no further details" I start assuming the worst.
  14. As far as merch goes, is it also possible that some people are buying non-AEW merch for the stars in question? Since a lot of the wrestlers had established merch before signing, and some still have their own PWTees stores that sell stuff not available from the AEW shop.
  15. Yeah, I don't know why they're putting him out on commentary constantly, it's not like he's spectacular at it. Especially to have him doing it for multiple matches - it just overexposes him. I'm glad they were smart enough to book him as a heel right from the jump, though. In Powerr he seemed miscast as a babyface.
  16. Isn't Sasha injury prone? If so, I could see why they would be reluctant to put a belt on her for an extended period.
  17. I wish they'd do more with Ricky Starks on Dynamite. Because I only get to watch Dark regularly, and he's on there too much.
  18. I think you answered your own question there - if Sting's not involved, and Hogan's not the third man, he's the one getting all the rubs fighting the nWo.
  19. When you think you're an underutilized, overlooked performer, and then the WWE bookers give you the gimmick of "complains about being underutilized and overlooked", it's not to push you, it's to prove that they were right. Because if they were going to push you, they would have. Either that, or they are still massively overcorrecting from having seen how overextended the nWo invasion was in WCW.
  20. Using a time machine, I feel like 1998 Mankind vs 2002 Lesnar would have been something to see.
  21. How come nobody gave love for the classics - monkey flip and bulldog? Whenever I bust out a game with create-a-wrestler, I always wind up trying to give one wrestler nothing but animal-named moves. They usually wind up with a horrifically inconsistent moveset as a result, but it's easier to pull of than the "only uses moves named after geographic locations" gimmick.
  22. You can't pay for locker rooms in hot dogs and handshakes.
