  1. I know that Heenan apparently did stuff like this because he figured that by being an asshole, he was getting the babyface over, but Goddamn, that was racist. Stares at you in Mick Foley
  2. True, but they're making movies, pal. They're not a wrestling promotion anymore. Now that they're just a content farm for NBCUniversal and Fox, there's really nothing keeping them from trying to figure out a way to do a permanent Thunderdome situation year-round. They don't need to be on the road each week anymore. They simply don't need to sell tickets to survive. They could save a shitload of money by filming from a fixed location each week, either by building their own studio/arena setup, or figuring out ways of doing a few residencies in different places.
  3. You can throw out all the excuses you want, but if less people are watching a TV show than they were previously, then that's a pretty decent indication it's not as popular as it used to be.
  4. How many people are actually watching? Raw is hovering around 2 million viewers a week. It's hard to argue that they're popular when no one is watching.
  5. I'm not saying that they've never been this unpopular, just that it's closer to the nadir than the zenith.
  6. Yeah, but they're a television company. They know how ratings work.
  7. Their popularity is at historically low numbers, and yet they're still able to talk people who should know better into giving them astronomical amounts of money. It's astonishing. I ain't even mad, I'm impressed. This never would have happened under Jack Donaghy's watch, though.
  8. Does Tommy Dreamer not own any mirrors or what? Who told him his hair looks good? Do those t-shirts he wears come in a larger size? I have so many questions.
  9. Uh, I don't think Luna's taking any bookings these days.
  10. Lacey Evans could rip Cardi B's arms off and beat her to death with them.
  11. Would Lawler count in the discussion, or is he disqualified because he never worked an athletic style to begin with?
  12. Actually, when he debuted in the gimmick, the announcers pretended like they'd never seen him before.
  13. And everyone of them was justified in doing so. Hogan couldn't even be bothered to learn how to pronounce Orndorff's last name correctly.
  14. Well, yeah, but I wasn't trying to defend what happened. But I think it's a fair point to mention.
  15. Does everyone know that Lita and Edge never actually slept together? She put the brakes on everything before it got that far. I feel like this is a part of the story that never gets talked about.
  16. You've never actually seen an inferno match, have you? Ain't no one going to get excited for that shit.
  17. Goldberg vs Mongo on the first Thunder is pretty good for a short match.
  18. Wasn't there also a completely different guy named Nightmare Freddy in the 80s, who had nothing to do with a Krueger gimmick? I wanna say he popped up briefly in Continental with Eddie Gilbert?
