  1. Was there some Owen rib where he was like excessively friendly to some random fan, gave him a lift to that night's show, let him come backstage and then randomly left him stranded there at the end?
  2. Goddamn I thought Spivey was scary looking in the 90s but he's nightmare fuel now
  3. I was there that night! I went to get a dang beer when Jericho unmasked! Shingo is so fucking good, well done to him imo
  4. I think Page and Sky were meant to be disingenuously blowing smoke up Sting's ass so they could play up the idea that Darby only won because he relied on a legendary tag partner to get the pinfall after he got splatted. They're moving the goalposts "Now wrestle us with a different tag partner because we said so" isn't necessarily the most logical direction to go, but yeah maybe 62 year old Sting being Darby's invincible dad that stops him getting beat up is an idea they need to get past eventually
  5. Nyla's "D-M-[middle finger] " gesture at Britt was magnificent, just dripping with contempt Best thing about Miro shouting out God and his hot wife was the completely straight face, like he's some alpha male project manager with no self awareness trying to hype up his direct reports. He should cut a promo every week if he's not wrestling
  6. Schiavone: we are proud to once again have Autism-friendly sensory isolation rooms and support staff at this pay per view! Up next, we have Nyla Rose in action! Strowman: [is fired mid-sentence]
  7. One more for the bingo card [Bryan heaps praise on a match, typically by saying "I. Thought. This. Match. Was... AWESOME" [silence] [Dave says "...it was a good match!", with little apparent enthusiasm]
  8. There was also a brief shot of Nakano in full gimmick having to smile pleasantly and give flowers to a child or whatever which was lol I didn't realise the apparent full extent of Scorpio's plan to murder Hawk with chopsticks, I thought him feeling the need to repeatedly emphasise that he was tougher than a guy who's been dead for 17 years was a bit of an eye-roller tbh. I'm sure Hawk was often a nightmare to deal with, but he almost came out of it looking better than Scorpio from Scorpio's own account
  9. In an industry that sometimes feels like it's been taken over by the people who think Shawn Michaels is the GOAT, I'm glad Serena Deeb is flying the Bret flag Is anyone else doing that kind of detail-heavy, technical with a vicious streak thing at the moment? There's definitely a shortage of it in AEW
  10. Is there a confirmed list of who they've interviewed for the Collision in Korea episode? Kind of praying for Steiner but equally he seems like might be like a Zandig-level pain in the ass to arrange and coexist with
  11. Ooof, downgrading that diss to "too much, man" after actually watching the dang episode of dark side of the ring
  12. Yeah I think my tolerance for OTT daft Booker T-style commentary is higher than most but I always enjoyed Mongo overall. An ex-football player with a huge personality, eccentric charisma and clumsily violent ring work seemed like a logical fit for that kind of wrestling company at that time, as part of a larger cast of characters obviously. He was into the bit and was committed to it all in. I think he was a genuinely decent promo in a kind of (lesser) Piper-ish deranged, ad-libbed intensity sort of way. Like say what you want but you were never bored! Wonder if I can find the extremely c
  13. Just seen about Mongo, that fucking sucks. I was curious about how he was doing last year and stumbled across a 2019 interview/history of his importance to the 1985 Chicago Bears, and he'd lost a ton of weight and looked fairly unrecognisable even then, but he was doing seemingly well. The magnitude of his personality and the seemingly godlike esteem he was held in by his ex-colleagues and fans was a hell of a thing. It's an unbelievably cruel reversal for him to be staring down the barrel of such a brutal deterioration Edit: this was the piece https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports
  14. QT Marshall is going to turn heel imo. And he's going to keep turning heel until somebody notices, damn it! I am getting into Alex Abrahantes increasingly far-gone polite boy fallen in with the bad kids/radicalised by insane luchador vibe Fair play, "it means the world to be the first black woman in the Rhodes family" is one of the most deranged things I've ever heard
  15. If you wash your glasses in soapy water before you go out it'll lessen the fogginess a bit
  16. The original attitude era version of the Big Show theme was the best one imo. It sounded like he was unexpectedly kicking your door/house down all like "guess what motherfuckers!!", whereas the later one sounded like him slowly waking up to listlessly shout at some kids for being near his lawn
  17. That line always bugged me. Will I know or not? Make your dang mind up!!
  18. Paul Wight d Marko Stunt in 0:13 via Stunt flying into the horizon and doing the Smash Brothers glint thing
  19. Yeah all these poor low card people having to constantly pretend it is and has always been their favourite song of all time is so tiresome Agree with the earlier posts re: what an interesting fit ZSJ would be for AEW. Their in-ring for me is really missing pure technical grapplers in that Bryan/Bret vein
  20. "settle down Chipernetico" me if you want, but Dakota Kai's Buss It challenge video is incredible. Really just seeing her in a whole new light
  21. It's an Owen-level one isn't it? Damn it. It will still be possible to get randomly bummed out about this in 20 years It's just really hard to get your head around it when the conception you had of him in your head up right up to the point where he died was that he was a guy who was physically dominant, skilled in the ring and, as of 2020, professionally happier than ever. His big AEW run had only just got started. The universe doesn't care, but my brain is like "he's not the kind of guy who can be dead!". It thinks he's still gonna be out there clotheslining heads off and screaming at un
  22. Oh god those last ten minutes. In bits It was nice/weird/sad seeing Bray, E, Becky, Seth et al popping up in the photos, feel bad for those guys being in a different company when this all happened and not being able to just show up to the tribute like Rowan did What a mad few days it's been, it still doesn't feel real
