    There’s a dump by my house that actually serves pretty good food at reasonable prices. SHOCKING!

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      Is your house in the dead center of Manhattan? lol

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        No, but I do live in Chicago(land(-ish))

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          I was eating sushi today for $3 a plate and it was some of the best shit I’ve seen in awhile. I feel you on trying to eat cheap. In Manhattan though…just go for it. Treat yourself to all the Sbarro you can.

          • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

            I worked in Downtown Chicago for awhile and it was a nightmare. So much McDonalds, LOL.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Sbarro is a proud sponsor of BoD 2k17

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            I feel like if a sponsorship is ever offered I really should be first on that list. No one lives Sbarro like The Shitman

          • Brian_Bayless

            I can make an alternate Sbarro attire. You can feud with Peyton and his Papa John attire in the Battle of Wonderful Pizza

            Since I’m off tomorrow and getting snowed in, I’m going all out with the Sbarro Arena

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Thad was saying he now has access to all those characters now, and they show up randomly in his career mode. That’s nuts

          • Brian_Bayless

            LOL, thats awesome.

            Imagine Hoss or Dwarn attacking you backstage

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            It makes me want to buy 2K17 honestly, seems stupidly fun

          • Brian_Bayless

            Lord knows what kind of characters I’ll have now since I downloaded Dwarn

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    Watching Owen/Dude from the Raw after SumSla 97, Austin sort of stumbles out and distracts Bret on commentary then hits Owen with his own Slammy to give Dude the win.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      He was still pretty f-ed up at that point, IIRC. Probably shouldn’t have been walking around at all.

    Here we gooooooooo

  • Phrederic

    Punisher has an absolutely bonkers kill-rate in this show.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      That dude elevates the character. Punisher was always cool, Bernthal makes him even fucking cooler

      • Phrederic

        Punisher isn’t ALWAYS cool. But this is one of my favorite versions of him.

        It helps that he doesn’t have the dopey costume for much of it.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    So basically, if your favorite restaurant ends up on Food Network or Travel Channel, you’re screwed because it’s either going to become an overpriced tourist trap or close because the owners aren’t prepared to expand.

    Ric Flair’s Pro Wrestling Tees store has closed. Flair’s podcast with MLW Radio has also ended. Flair is expected to work more with WWE after recently inking a new deal. Flair’s co-host Conrad Thompson wrote on Twitter that Flair is “great! Healthy, in love, happy, and as busy as ever.” He also mentioned that the show isn’t coming back.

    • Comdukakis

      in love? Flair can’t afford anymore ex wives

      • jobber123

        He got engaged to the Fifi chick from a Flair for the Gold

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Good to see that big retirement and farewell 9 years ago is sticking.

    • Scott

      And he’s back on the Ico-Pro if those weightlifting stories are any indication.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    This Raw starts with Shawn sewing the seeds of the heel turn but telling the crowd they can be with him or against him, it’s all good to him. He says a lot of stuff about how the people that run the company don’t have the balls to solve the problem then he points at Vince.

    It’s crazy people (including me) were shocked by Vince “coming out” as the owner because Bret and Shawn’s feud draws him out in public as early as February 1997.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Speaking of coming out, can’t wait for those DX segments!

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        What are you implying, sir?!?

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          There are at least three moments in 1997 where Vince begins rubbing Shawn in ways that can only be described as loving lol

    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      Vince had been “out” as an owner since Nash’s promo on him after Survivor Series ’95. And then further a year later with JR’s heel turn along with Austin shit talking him following the gun angle.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    At some point in this interview Shawn says, “Alright, let’s move on to the next topic. Scroll, scroll, scroll.”

    That…that is crazy and weird coming from anyone in middle 1997, particularly a jock that we know isn’t very technically savvy based on what he’s said on podcasts and stuff.

    Elektra is just a completely dud character.

    She’s never interesting.

    She doesn’t serve as the “romantic id/levity” that Black Cat does for Spider-Man. And she doesn’t work as the “hey, you’re actually a criminal” thing Catwoman does for Batman.

    She’s just “hey, she’s a ninja.”

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      What she lacks in plot device she makes up in stunning beauty. I like when she says Matthew. Every time.

      • Phrederic

        There’s plenty of hot women in the show.

        She’s a complete drag on the plot. Just total dead-time.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          None as hot as her. Ok except Rosario good god. But still. Elektra is fucking sexy.

          • Phrederic

            Jessica Jones is hotter.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Kyle’s cousin Kari, who’s a 3-pt specialist for the UCLA women (and their whole family have K first names, weirdos), is odd, because she’s cute but she also looks like Kyle with long blonde hair

      • Bruce Chung

        Remember last year everybody said he was a terrible player?

  • Brian_Bayless

    Bulls reportedly shopping Butler again.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      They might as well blow the whole thing up if that’s the case. The Rondo and Wade signings are still headscratching to me.

      • chicagodem79

        Unless it’s for a top 3 pick, they’re insane. He’s still a useful player that wants to be there and that’s something. Rondo’s signing is inexplicable, Wade, I get it because he still has a little left in the tank, and he’s a good recruiter to get other potential free agents in the future.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          He’s a franchise-level player, to shop him with two years of club control after this year (with a player option after that), they have to get a top pick and a very good player.

    • WWF1987

      That would be crazy of them. He’s a player they should build around. Are they looking for picks?

      • Brian_Bayless

        I think they are going to rebuild.

      • Bruce Chung

        Not that crazy. Unless they bottom out, they’re not gonna get top picks to rebuild.

  • johntcole

    Huh, I guess a bunch of matches at the last Full Sail tapings are going to remain unseen.

    • Comdukakis

      Why?

      • johntcole

        Because of what’s being taped tonight. Could have sworn the next FS tapings weren’t till next week.

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    Lost in all the firsts.

    Kenny is the first foreigner (third man) to ever kick out of a rainmaker.
    AJ never did that.

    • Rick Poehling

      The other two…..I’m guessing Tanahashi & Ishii?

      • Nakamura definitely kicked out of one in the G1 final in 2014.

        • Or maybe not. I could have sworn he did.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            People made a BIG DEAL about Naito being the second guy to ever kick out, which was also my memory of it. I’d be real surprised if everyone just forgot about Nakamura doing it

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Looks like he hit Nak with three consecutive rainmakers, but only attempted the Pin after the third, so no kickout.

          • See, I remembered it as he hit 3 because he’d kicked out of one earlier, but I just skimmed through a highlight video of that match and he didn’t, do I’ll hold my hands up on that one.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Having him just go for three without a kickout earlier screams of compromise.

            Nak wasn’t willing to lay down for just one, NJPW wasn’t willing to let him kickout of the first one.

            So there’s your compromised finish.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        Earlier this year Naito became only the second man ever to kick out of the rain maker

        • Rick Poehling

          Ah. Naito would have been on the short list. I’m assuming Tanahashi is the other one.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Yeah. Tana kicked out a bunch. Not in their first few matches but by the 8th or 9th time you kind of HAVE to go to that well to keep escalating.

          • Rick Poehling

            Da Meltz agreed with you on the greatness of Okada/Omega.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            I think Tanahashi kicked out of two in one match once.

  • chicagodem79

    Zach Lowe had a good column on espn.com today about the spike in NBA scoring and if it’s good for the league. I said the other night that it seems like the defense in the NBA is at its worst since the 80s, and I’m not sure how good of a thing it is. Ton of 3’s too. Some nights, Houston takes more 3 point shots than 2 point shots which is really weird. I don’t know, I’m gonna have to think about this more.

    • Comdukakis

      Defense is light years better than years past. They’ve sped up the pace, more threes, more sophisticated offense, and less clutching and grabbing allowed

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        It’s a lot of threes, but they’re also quality shots. A lot of it is the catch-and-shoot variety and getting open looks from good ol fashioned ball movement and picks, as opposed to early-00s guards iso-dribbling and chucking with wanton abandon.

        • chicagodem79

          All of this is true no doubt, and I wasn’t old enough in the 80s to really watch the NBA critically back then, but it’s just weird to see so many ridiculously high scoring games.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            Yeah, it’s crazy that we’re barely a decade removed from those 82-78 Spurs/Pistons slugfests, and even less from Thibs’ Bulls keeping everyone under 90.

          • Comdukakis

            It was even more high scoring in the 60s

        • Comdukakis

          And in the 80s and before, they let guys have uncontested fifteen footers all day. Then after that it wasn’t great d, it was overly physical play being allowed

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I’m glad teams and coaches are wisening up that it’s worth for a player to take a step or two back and go for the extra point instead chucking late 90s-early 00s style 19-footers. I’m a big fan of Houston’s 3s-and-layups mindset. It was a neat article, and it was interesting to hear coaches resign themselves that floor-spreading shooting is so widespread that you have to go small or have fun covering stretch 4s.

      • I dunno, something feels kinda weird when you’re at a point where there’s really no reason to D anybody up between the three-point line and five feet from the basket.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          At the same time, it’s a fun chess match watching teams switch constantly, trying to make sure that even centers are bodied up away from the rim. I love the great ball movement around the league, esp. from the tippy-top teams.

          • It’s a bit better in the NBA because of the athleticism, but go down to college and watch a team like Virginia, who purposely only defends the three and right next to the basket, and that can be some muddy-ass boring basketball because that defense works and very few teams have the horses to work around it.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            Oh yeah, but I think that’s a given with college hoops to begin with, the lack of midrange games.

          • That’s what worries me, it’s similar to there being a lot of shitty QB’s coming into the NFL now because a lot of them work in gimmicky offenses that don’t require them to make read progressions or even have a playbook (HI JOHNNY MANZIEL!), and I worry that’s gonna leak into the NBA, where guys coming in from college are gonna be raised on 3’s and layups and not know what the hell they’re doing in that 5-20 foot black hole.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            I think that’s well underway since the rise of AAU and kids who grew up on Iverson who dribbled out the shot clock from 25 feet out.

          • I’m also a believer in the notion that AAU ball is squeezing all the fun shit-talk rivalry kind of hate out of the league because guys have been hanging out and playing together since junior high school.

          • Comdukakis

            This is true

    • Mikey

      I like it. I prefer this to the NBA from 1998-2002 outside of personal nostalgia

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Yeah, the league is crazy loaded. Giannis is in Milwaukee exile and he’s gonna be fucking phenomenal.

    • WWF1987

      I bet they consider moving the 3 point line back.

      • chicagodem79

        Yeah I’ve thought about that too, many 3’s are way behind the line anyway these days, although that still doesn’t take away the most deadly shot, the corner 3 pointer unless they make the floor bigger.

        • Bruce Chung

          Uneven 3’s are a bit exploitative.

      One of the Austin attacks on Vince. Probably the hospital room

    • chicagodem79

      NEXUS roster beatdown.

    • Sammartino choking Savage over the Steamboat incident.

    • WWF1987

      Horsemen breaking Dusty’s arm.

    • Bruce Chung

      The WWE vs. Undertaker at Royal Rumble 94.

      I never saw it, but I heard it was good.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      It’s pretty incredible we got so many different answers from this question.

      • And none of them were the Horsemen on Dusty.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Someone has WWF1987 blocked…

        • Comdukakis

          Make it good!

  • SpiralTap

    Snowfall is expected tonight (only like 2 inches or so), so the hotel at which I work offered free rooms for the employees. I decided to take them up on the offer, since we had like 1/4 of an inch one morning last week, and it was frightening see how poorly everyone else’s driving skills are. Not trying to get killed because some asshole has never seen snow before.

    • Andrew Champagne

      That’s a pretty sweet benefit to have.

    • Mikey

      Do you live in the South?

      • SpiralTap

        Southwest Virginia.

        We don’t get as much snow as up north, but we get more than enough for it to be ridiculous how some people here can’t even drive in fucking rain.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Do you get dibs on the mini fridge shit too?

      • SpiralTap

        lmao mini fridge

        It’s a Hampton Inn, brudda

        We didn’t even have mini fridges at the Inn at Virginia Tech

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          I spend 23 hours a day cooped up in a bedroom. I don’t know what other rooms look like.

          • SpiralTap

            Understandable.

  • jobber123

    Am I crazy or has Tanahashi kicked out of the rainmaker a couple times?

    • Thebraziliankid

      Only once!

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        This has to be wrong.

    • cultstatus

      I could have sworn he did it last year at WK.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      A few times. He did it at both WK 9 and 10, off the top of my head.

    • WWF1987

      Many times.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        He’s thew only guy to do it multiple times, but it was expected by the WK 10 match.

        He did it at Invasion Attack once too.

  • Bruce Chung

    4-0 Caps. The streak has to be over.

  • Mikey

    Kinda cool that Dantoni is having a bit of a Rennaissance as a coach. He looked like a hack as soon as he left Phoenix.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I still don’t think he wins anything meaningful as a head coach, but he is a certified offensive genius. And the Knicks were constructed poorly; you’re not winning with Chris Duhon and Fat Ray Felton as your PGs.

  • Comdukakis

    This new arena for the wings and Pistons doesn’t have me excited but pissed off. Pissed at the drive, the public money, the out of state non union labor, etc

    • Mikey

      Isn’t it Downtown now?

      • Comdukakis

        It will be. They both move in next year. Wings were already downtown.

        • Mikey

          Should have specified, I was aware of the Joe.

      • Bruce Chung

        The Palace is somewhat far from Detroit proper I believe.

        • Comdukakis

          Yes a good 25 minutes north without traffic. Perfect for those who don’t want to deal with Detroit

  • cultstatus

    The heat for this is incredible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxS5oyV_xqk

  • Biff ♥ You

    You know what I appreciate about New Japan’s presentation? They don’t mess around. From the shows I’ve watched this week and the archives I’ve started to explore, it seems as though New Japan rattles off matches, one right after the other, with a bare minimum of fluff. When something does go down though, it looks and feels like a big deal. Contrast that with RAW, where you can go thirty-forty minutes without a match some weeks because of the interview and talking segments that mean zilch.

    • Thebraziliankid

      They’re shows are 3/4 matches, then intermission, then the main events.

    • They don’t have 3 hours of weekly TV. In fact their television presence is pretty minimal from what I remember. Their one show is an hour long, isn’t live, and is buried in some late night graveyard slot. It may have changed lately but that’s how it was in the low point of the 2000s.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Tickets for USC-Stanford going for $30-$40 online two hours before the game. This is absurd. It’s great that college basketball in LA seems to be back, but it makes it REALLY hard to go to games now!

  • SpiralTap

    I was about to head out for dinner, but then I realized that there was still some pizza in the fridge in the break room, leftover from the pizza party we had during lunch.

    Rifftrax of Force Awakens thanks to Rifftrax credit? Why yes I will thank you.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Nice! I should get that one.

      • JosephM

        I somehow got like 20 dollars in credit from them, not sure how it happened but I’ll happily take it.

  • Thebraziliankid

    Favorite action movie actors?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Rocky, Keanu

    • CHARLES FUCKING BRONSON.

    • I disapproved of action movies as a kid, and I’ve not seen many as an adult.

    • The Silver Fox

      Arnold Schwarzenegger

  • Comdukakis

    Pistons might actually win tonight against a team not missing its biggest stars

  • chicagodem79

    I’m normally not a meat head like this, but part of me misses the overly physical bruising 90s, because you really had to put up and overcome some real shit to advance. Michael Jordan got his ass kicked in the late 80s and 1990 but it made him a much tougher and resilient player. There has to be some happy medium between 127-124 and 79-75.

    • Comdukakis

      Made him a fucking whiner post baseball. Guy cried and berated refs for phantom calls

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      True, but I’m also glad the game has passed by goons. You have to be able contribute on both ends to stick beyond grabbing rebounds and tossing elbows.

      • Miko363

        I really don’t need to see Heat-Knicks playoff games ending 65-58 because the strategy was to just tackle the guy with the ball.

        • chicagodem79

          I fully admit, I’m still a mark for that kind of basketball at times. It brings a grin to my face thinking about those slugfests lol, but I get why it’s not a good look today.

    • Comdukakis

      The history of the league is far more 127-124 than 79-75

      • chicagodem79

        This is true, I guess I’m just not a fan of 127-124 games when it comes down to it.

        • Comdukakis

          I love every era for their uniqueness, but right now combines great offense, big time players, and great d effort

          • chicagodem79

            I liked it at first, but it feels like it’s getting a little repetitive now (and the effort on defense seems to be very lacking on some nights).

          • Comdukakis

            Naah watch the rotation, the scrambling, offense is just good. Pick and roll is just hard to defend when you space the floor with shooters

          • chicagodem79

            It’s hard to give the effort needed to play defense to cover all that space these days. The teams that can do it have the athletes and willingness to do it, a lot of teams don’t, and it’s ugly to watch.

    • Mikey

      I think we’re at where we’re at, my man. Unless the defensive schemes can catch up to the offense.

      Still, it’s better than the NFL game changing because of rules on QBs. The NBA is based on strategy

      • Bruce Chung

        Because the NBA hasn’t nerfed big men steadily from the 50’s? Let’s not pretend the NBA hasn’t changed rules to promote scoring and a more fun style of play.

        Let’s remove goal tending, get rid of the lane and the three second rule on both sides, and we’ll see big men increase in value in an instant. Or how about NCAA banning the dunk because Lew Alcindor was too dominant?

        I would prefer slightly less scoring and more of a balance. We don’t need rules rolled so far back that 7 foots can easily dominate.

    • I’m just happy Rick Barry’s grandson is keeping hope alive and utilizing the underhand free throw.

    • Bruce Chung

      I’m not a huge fan of this style of play. The 80’s was better, but it’s because nobody played defense with intensity.

  • jobber123

    I know Tanahashi kicked out of one at the show where Balor turned heel but I could have sworn he kicked out of one in a more recent match? And it was still because he beat the fuck out of Okadas arm and Okada couldn’t make the cover for a delayed stretch of time. So it was still protected imo.

      • Bones

        I don’t remember the clash one specifically, I do recall it was a hell of a tag match.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Oh damn, we’re just a month out from John Wick 2. Fucking A.

    • JosephM

      I…I still need to see the first one…

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Such a kickass movie.

    • Phrederic

      That’s cute.

      I guess it’ll tide me over until an actually decent movie comes out.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Now I know why everyone’s blocking you!

  • jobber123

    Oh and how fucking total dog shit is Tanahashis new music? Why would they change his awesome old theme to this new awful one. IT SUCKS.

    • cultstatus

      When Kevin Kelly is making jokes about your music, you know you fucked up.

    • Bones

      Rollins is getting a new theme lol

    • WWF1987

      His new music is atrocious.

    • We think it’s got a storyline purpose. He’s trying to convince himself he’s still the Ace even though he’s obviously not any more with stuff like his new tights (that are the same as the old ones basically) and this new music yelling GO ACE every 5 seconds. It might be laying the groundwork for an eventual heel turn.

  • Jackson Smith

    Everyone under the D-coordinator and special teams coach gets shitcanned in New Orleans.

    • Thebraziliankid

      Payton should get shitcanned.

      • Andrew Champagne

        Disagree, and here’s why. If the NFL made it legal to trade coach-for-coach, and Cincinnati called offering Marvin Lewis for Sean Payton, the Saints would hang up and not even listen. Lewis is staying, so Payton stays, too.

      • Jackson Smith

        I don’t know. No telling how good any replacement would be, you piss off Drew mightily, and this year they’re out of the playoffs from 3 blocked kicks.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Who will lead the way into giving up a weekly 40 at the Silverdome, brother?!

      • Jackson Smith

        I knew 30 was going to be great just from that starting off, lol.

  • Rick Poehling

    I brought this up during the show a few days ago, but the few people that have kicked out of the Rainmaker got me to thinking about the fact that Gedo did a great job of protecting Omega’s finisher in the main. They kept saying it was over if Omega hit the Angel, it was over, and if you’re in the WWE, that’s just setting up to be kicked out of, but instead he never hit it and keeps it being the badass finisher that kills.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    While I type on this here keyboard, I realize that I dont remember really how to type or spell anymore. This makes me a sad tomato.

  • TomaxAndXamot

    Hornswoggle on Impact. Or is that Davy Richards?

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    I started watching Nitro 198, from the Georgia Dome. I think there’s a Rap is Crap performance, Bret Hart speaking for the first time since Owen died, and Megadeth performing someone’s theme. Will that person show up? Tune in to find out!

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Ah yes, I remeber when Megadeth did Norman Smiley’s theme for a month or two.

      • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

        Exactly. Sometimes these pairings are so obvious.

  • Jeremy Rinehart

    Worst NBA Finals team from the 90s?

    1990 Blazers

    • Jackson Smith

      ’99 Knicks

      • chicagodem79

        Gotta be the Knicks. Houston made the finals with a 47-35 record, but they won it all so they can’t really count.

        • Bruce Chung

          It got worse for the Knicks when Ewing got injured. The lockout overall made that a toss-up year, but nobody ever brings that up to the Spurs.

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          Plus they won back-to-back titles, so they get a pass

    • Bones

      The 2000s is easy. Whatever year the Nets were there.

      • Jackson Smith

        Two years back to back

      • The ’01 Allen Iverson and 11 Other Jabronis would like a word.

        • Comdukakis

          Eric snow says “that’s cold man”

        • Bones

          They had AI at least. The Nets had what? Kerry Kittles and Van Horn? Wasn’t Kidd there then?

          • Bruce Chung

            Kidds galvanized them to back to back Finals.

        • chicagodem79

          What year was that San Antonio destroyed the Cleveland Lebrons when it was Lebron and 11 other jobbers.

          • To be fair, that’s like losing a Super Bowl to the Patriots. No shame in losing to the best.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            You are scum.

          • Bruce Chung

            07.

      • What about that year the Magic made it and got made fools of?

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          They were a pretty good team. Nick Anderson choked away Game 1 and the Magic couldn’t recover

      • Bruce Chung

        2000 was Sixers. 01-02 was Nets.

    • Bruce Chung

      99 Knicks, but it’s not fair because it was the lockout year.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Knickerbockers

    • Andrew Champagne

      They actually took a game or two from the Pistons that year.

      • Jeremy Rinehart

        Should have won two, maybe three games in that series. Went out in 5

    • razor172

      91 Lakers,all their star players were old as shit and had no answer for Jordan.

      • Jeremy Rinehart

        They were old and should have been swept

      • chicagodem79

        I think the Lakers had 58 wins that year so they weren’t THAT terrible. The Bulls were just that much better than everyone else.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Dude! its -4 outside!? No wonder I cant feel my ears.

  • Jackson Smith

    Eli Drake starting to look like a divorced dad in a Lifetime movie with that stubble and brown leather jacket.

    Worst NBA Finals team of the 10’s? This feels a little soon.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Btw it was the 2019 Memphis Grizzlies. No clue how they made it.

    • Probably those clowns from the Bay Area that gakked up a 3-1 lead in the Finals.

      CHOKERS, AMIRITE?

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Nothing good has ever come from the Bay. A useless place!

        You might call them jobbers

      2011–12 Thunder. That roster gets super thin real quick past the big three.

      • Any team that relies on Kevin Durant gets what they have coming to them.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Daequan Cook(!) started 22 games for that Western Conference champion

    • Bruce Chung

      11 Mavs.

  • Phrederic

    Why do half the women still get shitty FruityLoops generic hip-hop beats as themes?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      In WWE? Because I think a lot of the NXT-era-and-beyond chicks have good themes, and the ones that don’t are from the bygone relics of Diva Era, or in the case of Eva, fits their character.

      • Phrederic

        I just listened to Peyton and Billie’s theme and they blow.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        That game didn’t happen.

      • Bruce Chung

        Starting center forgot to take his meds, took a long walk, o-line in disarray.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Kind of hard to say, because it’s usually not a good game to begin with. For me it was Ravens-Niners.

      • Thebraziliankid

        Aren’t you a bills or Niners fan?

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Yeah. But the Niners lost on some infuriating playcalling at the end.

      • That was in the 2012 season.

        • Thebraziliankid

          It counts too.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Yeah. It’s still the 2000s.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Steelers vs. Seahawks. We’ve had some quality Super Bowls this millennium. Off the top of my head Colts/Bears, Ravens/Giants, and Broncos/Seahawks were the only weak ones. I liked last year’s. The Von Miller show was a sight to behold.

      • Thebraziliankid

        That was Big Ben’s first ring.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Turd of a game though.

      • chicagodem79

        Colts/Bears was awful. It’s like we knew Rex Grossman was going to do something stupid and it was inevitable.

    • Bones

      What Dave and Bayless said

    • The Silver Fox

      Seahawks-Broncos

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        On pure quality that’s my pick. That became a blowout on the very first play.

    • Mikey

      Ravens-Giants as stated before. My group of friends ended up just playing MLB showdown the whole night instead of watching

    • Bones

      To be different, the Steelers/Seattle SB sucked shit.

      I loved the result, but the game sucked.

      • Brian_Bayless

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Agreed, they wouldn’t have an answer for Olajuwon. The Admiral couldn’t contain him, let alone the dreaded combo of Longley, Perdue & Wennington

    • Jackson Smith

      ’94 was the better Rockets team

      • Bruce Chung

        Yeah I agree. Dexler was past his prime at that point, but the league was weak enough that it didn’t matter.

        People actually kind of ignore how the league kind of sucked in the 90 as all the 80’s stars got old, but all the 90’s stars got paid too early and were headcases.

    • PeteF3

      Worst Super Bowl: Chargers-49ers or Broncos-Falcons.

      The Falcons getting into the SB felt like robbery. No one outside of Georgia wanted to see them in that game, not when you had the defending champ Broncos who teased an undefeated run almost going against the 15-1 Vikings.

      • Judging by their attendance, nobody in Georgia cared either.

        I think that’s the most overrated one. Boring as all hell until the last 10 minutes.

        • PeteF3

          Agreed. Plus it was a game between two teams that had moved in the previous 8 or so years. That hurt the atmosphere and the build quite a lot, and that matters in discussions like this.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            That didn’t help. Titans/Rams? Who gives a shit?

          • PeteF3

            Yeah, it was like two expansion teams facing each other. Imagine the confusion if we’d gotten Panthers vs. Jags in ’96.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            It’s 2 teams that hardly even have a fanbase. Like the anti Cowboys/Steelers.

          • Thebraziliankid

            I have feeling that’s gonna be this years SB.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’m saying Falcons/Patriots. Call it a hunch.

    • The Silver Fox

      Steelers-Cardinals or Packers-Steelers

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Pack-Steelers is an underrated one.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Pats/Rams

  • Mikey

    Favorite NBA Finals of the 10s: Cavs-Warriors

    Least Favorite: Lakers-Celtics

    • Mikey

      Cavs-Warriors 2016

      • Bruce Chung

        That is going to overshadow the entire decade. People already forgot all the other years. The decade of GS vs. CLE especially if they have a rubber match.

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      Heat/Spurs 2013

    • Bruce Chung

      Spurs at Heat 13. Ray Allen shot.

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      Spurs-Heat 2014. Fuck Ray Allen and his stupid shot.

      DISCLAIMER: I’m a dirty homer.

  • Thebraziliankid

    I have a friend who is Kurt Warner mark, was he that good?

    • Andrew Champagne

      Look at Larry Fitzgerald’s numbers after Warner left. There’s your answer.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Best deep-ball thrower I’ve ever seen. He’d chucked that thing halfway down the field and plop it right in Torry Holt’s or Isaac Bruce’s hands in stride.

    • Mikey

      Absolutely. He was amazing.

  • Bones

    Best SB of the 2000s?

    NE/Carolina? Giants/NE? Steelers/Cardinals? NE/STL? STL/Tennessee?

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      STL/TEN

    • Jackson Smith

      Biased for ’09 (well, actually February ’10)

    • The Silver Fox

      Steelers-Cardinals

    • PeteF3

      Giants/NE I.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Steelers Cards was great throughout. That one, although Giants/NE had the most incredible result.

    • NY/NE

    • Bruce Chung

      NE vs. StL was really good.

      I liked PIT vs. ARI a lot too.

    • Pats-Rams with that scrappy little underdog Tom Brady beating The Greatest Show on Turf.

      • Thebraziliankid

        Before he turned into the Antichrist.

  • I’m not comfortable with 2010 onward counting as the 2000s. That’s like saying 1900-1999 is “The 1900s”.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      The New Tens, which is different from The Aughts (00-09)

    • Mikey

      I think we’re just thinking 2010 til now. I think we’re at the point the 00s were quite distinct.

      The difference between the year 2000 and the year 2017 is scary.

  • Phrederic

    So did Daredevil’s accident give him super physical attributes too?

    Or was Stick just that good of a trainer?

    Cause he’s beating the piss out of these Hand goons.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Lifelong training and work.

      • Phrederic

        Yeah, but wouldn’t the Hand ninjas have that too?

        White boi powers too strong I guess.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Oh but he has good on his side so that gives him the edge.

          • Phrederic

            Oh, right, he’s Catholic.

            God’s coming in for the assist.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            You’re learning.

          • The Rabid One

            You must teach this young Padawan on the power of plot and the strength of deus ex machina

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Roids

      • Phrederic

        Fatburners maybe, but he doesn’t look roided.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      His powers are kind of whatever they need to be.

      • Phrederic

        Sure, sure.

        But like, their training is limiting the advantages of his super senses. So how the fuck can he just backflip kick the fuck out of these guys.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Because he’s without fear.

          • Phrederic

            …I don’t have a response to that.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            Good because I had nowhere to go from there. It was a Hail Mary.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          Because plot.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Fuck, that avatar is awful!

    • Everyone in Hell’s Kitchen is a top shelf kung fu fighter.

      • Phrederic

        I do appreciate works that are like.

        “Ah, it is time to fight, everybody spread out, we don’t want to get in each others way when we do a hurricane kick.”

        In Daredevil, spinning head kicks are the absolutely most effective move in the world.

    • Buster Abbott

      Since you figure the Defenders will have to involve the obligatory “misunderstanding leads to a fight scene” between the four of them, Daredevil has no chance against either Jessica or Luke on paper.

  • Bones

    It’s the STEAMER!!!!

    • The Silver Fox

      Too bad it’s missing Sirius.

  • chicagodem79

    Since we’re doing favorites, favorite NBA Playoff individual game:

    Mine is Game 5 of the ’93 Eastern Conference Finals Bulls at Knicks. Yes it was the infamous Charles Smith rejection game, but that game had to be the most intense playoff game of all time. I will still watch it randomly from time to time because it’s fun to watch.

    • Whatever playoff game where Vlade Divac played the best. That one.

      That one was great.

      • Bruce Chung

        I’m still upset that he was traded for Kobe.

    • Mikey

      I really like Game 7 from the 92 Eastern Second Round.

      “Who’s Game is it? ITS MICHAEL JORDANS GAME!”

    • The Silver Fox

      Game 7 of the 1988 finals.

    • Mikey

      But definitely Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

  • Bones

    Tag action with Steamboat/Gilbert vs. Flair and Windham. This should be good.

    • Starscreamlive

      Maybe not 6 stars, but sounds entertaining for sure. Can’t go wrong with those four together.

  • Phrederic

    So does Marvel throw all their stars on some crazy exercise/diet regimen?

    Cause everyone is fucking shredded.

    • There aren’t really a lot of tubby super heroes..

      • Starscreamlive

        Blue Beetle was fat.

        • Phrederic

          And they didn’t allow him in the show.

          • PeteF3

            I’m not the comic expert others here are but I know Blue Beetle isn’t a Marvel guy.

          • Phrederic

            Arrow.

            Originally Ray Palmer’s role was gonna be Ted Kord.

            But Blue Beetle was held up in rights issues. So they went with Atom instead.

          • Starscreamlive

            Nothing wrong with The Atom, but Ted Kord is such a better character. That would have been great to see him on a series.

          • Phrederic

            Blue Beetle/Booster Gold is one of my favorite B-pairings in comics.

          • Starscreamlive

            Mine too

      • Phrederic

        True.

        But getting stage actors to bulk the fuck up might take some work.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Apparently Chris Hemsworth hates having such a low body fat %. Says it makes him feel uncomfortable.

      • Phrederic

        Yeah, well, despite what some Speakers of the House might say, anything less than 15% for walking around weight is absolutely bonkers.

        Humans aren’t supposed to be there. It’s bad for your brain, your heart, a whole bunch of other shit.

      • Starscreamlive

        It’s not natural. Humans were made to store fat to survive ti.es where food was not readily available.

    • Starscreamlive

      Actors get paid to prepare for their roles. They dont go to a 9-5, so they can dedicate 40 hrs a week to working out and diet.

      • Phrederic

        Right, but I just wonder if Marvel also has an elite cadre of personal trainers.

      • Bruce Chung

        The personal trainers make it much easier.

  • Mikey

    No one really talks about the “10s” as it relates to the 1900s.

    Once we get to 2020, it’s going to get odd because the “20s” get referenced so much

    • SpiralTap

      That’s why I always say “the roaring 20s, and not the Jimmy Cagney film.”

    • Bruce Chung

      Not much happened in 10’s other than WW1.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        russian revolution,end of qing dynasty.

        • The Rabid One

          Don’t you hate it how boxers rebel against MMA fighters.

      • djowalsen: Known Hater

        There was that crazy Triple Threat Election between Taft, Roosevelt and Wilson.

  • Bruce Chung

    5-0 Caps. Streak done. Bob getting pulled finally.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Wilbon called that one.

      • PeteF3

        God, has he turned into an anti-intellectual irritant lately. Did he just predict a CBJ loss or was he trashing them because THEY’RE NOT THE BLACKHAWKS, YO?

        • Bruce Chung

          He’s been annoying for years.

          I’m pretty much done with Kornheiser too. Probably gonna unsub from his pod soon.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          He didn’t mention the Blackhawks. They’re not even in the same conference anymore.

          • PeteF3

            Would Wilbon be aware of that fact, though?

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    This Brian Williams (I don’t know) vs Scott Putski match solely exists as something to be happening in the arena while we watch Brian Pillman change into a dress backstage on Goldust’s secret black and white back stage camera…

    • ’97 RAWs were great with that. They knew the lower card was garbage, so they always used those matches as a placeholder while some more important angle would happen on the split screen.

  • Bones

    Wow the 2000s really did have some great SBs.

    The 1990s…not so much. Giants/Bills, Denver/GB was okay.

    • PeteF3

      Denver/GB was great. The best Super Bowl ever to that point.

      • Bruce Chung

        That’s how I remember it too. It was shocking how GB was doing since DEN was like 14-0 before losing a game or something like that.

        • PeteF3

          No, that was next year. No one thought the Broncos had a prayer against GB, because that’s just how the Super Bowl went. Hell, I had no cognizant memory of any AFC team ever winning and only two even coming close going into that game.

          Edit: I’ll say two and a half. The Patriots played the Packers much tougher than the final score indicated.

          • Bruce Chung

            Oh fuck, I mis-remembered.

            Memory is getting worse and worse. It’s probably time to call it.

    • The Silver Fox

      80’s weren’t much better.

    • Bruce Chung

      Parity. Before it kind of became a science and some owners got even stupider somehow.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Yeah, the rest were all blowouts, pretty much.

      • The Silver Fox

        There weren’t too many good Super Bowls between 1984 and 1997.

  • I’m getting Andy Kauffman in Memphis type heat on r/SquaredCircle right now. It’s sort of amazing.

  • The Silver Fox

    Favorite World Series game: 1975 game 6.

    • Mikey

      2001 Game 7

      • PeteF3

        I don’t think anything can top Game 6, but that’s a contender. As are 1991 Game 7, 1986 Game 6, and maybe the most underrated Game 6 in a flurry of great ones: 1992.

        • Mikey

          Wasn’t born yet in 86. 91 and 92 I remember but only in the sense that I remember my Dad watching them. I would have been four and five for those years. I do remember 1993 with Carter

    • PeteF3

      Hard to argue with that one.

    • chicagodem79

      2016 Game 7 of course lol

    • Game 6, 1996

      • PeteF3

        That’s not even the best game of that Series.

        • It’s not for the action, it’s because I didn’t expect the Yankees to win that series. 16-year-old me was so happy.

          • Mikey

            Yeah doesn’t matter how good a game is to be honest if the team you root for wins the title. You’ll remember that way more than a great game

          • PeteF3

            Good thing I’m an Indians fan and can view these Series with stone-cold objectivity, then.

    • Bones

      In my lifetime 2001 game 7, 2016 game 7, the Royals/Giants game, Cardinals/Rangers game.

      Ever 1960 game 7.

      • The Silver Fox

        Agree on game 7 of 1960 as best ever.

        • Bones

          The sweet thing about that is they thought the whole game was lost but some guy found the full game on a reel in his attic a few years ago.

          • The Silver Fox

            Love stories like that.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    It’s so great Slaughter is so bad he can’t even read his promo on backstage cam. Outside of the DX stuff he could be the worst commissioner ever.

  • PeteF3

    It’s not in the discussion of all-time great WS for good reason, but 2005 might be the greatest possible Series that ended in a 4-game sweep. Every single game was a down-to-the-wire nailbiter. It and 1992 are probably the two most underrated Series of our lifetime.

  • WWF1987

    In the current Warriors/Cavs rivalry, which team do those that aren’t fans of either see as the heel? Warriors, right?

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I’d think the Cavs. I gotta think Steph is more well liked than LeBron.

      • Phrederic

        People hate LeBron.

        Steph is pretty popular. They want to see him fail, but LeBron is the bigger star, and more hated.

        • PeteF3

          LeBron isn’t seriously still hated now that he’s back in Cleveland, is he?

          • Phrederic

            He started getting political.

            So he’s getting heat for that.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            That’s probably the coolest thing he’s ever done. I wish more athletes would take a stand even if I disagree with them.

          • PeteF3

            On the other hand…Curt Schilling.

          • Phrederic

            Agreed.

            But even still. America doesn’t like the black man speaking about their situation.

          • Bruce Chung

            Even when he was hated…he wasn’t THAT hated. His jersey was still number 1 seller down in Miami.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Yeah, he was just hated in Cleveland.

      • Mikey

        Don’t get it. Steph is a lil douche

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      I rooted for the Cavs.

    • Thebraziliankid

      GSW are heels.

    • chicagodem79

      They’re both heels to me lol.

    • Bruce Chung

      I cheered for the Warriors grudgingly in 15, and again in 16. Didn’t really like them. They are definitely more of a heel now than in 15.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    The Pillman/Goldust angle is pretty gun, Goldust constantly screwing with Pillman in his matches to force DQ’s and Countouts so he has to keep wearing a dress is hilarious

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      Freudian slip there.

      • Sexy Miz

        Freud was a.cross dresser?

        • djowalsen: Known Hater

          Hmmm, note to self, trademark “Freudian Slips: comfortable women’s undergarments for men.”

    • Bones

      Pretty gun? That was Pillman/Austin.

      • Sexy Miz

        That was Paul Roma/Billy Gunn

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Too bad we never got a payoff to that. Not because I’ve ever gave a shit about anything involving Goldust, but, you know…

    • PeteF3

      But boy, does it go to shit with the XXX Files stuff.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        they were onto something with whored up Marlena.

  • Sexy Miz

    In two weeks, Vince McMahon will be able to trade DMs with the POTUS.

    • What’s a DM?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Direct message on social media. So instead of a Tweet everyone can see, its a private convo

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    “Stone Cold may be home licking his wounds but he’s asked his main man to tell you he’ll be back here real soon to kick some major major…ask me another question because the Dude is on a roll!”

    Foley’s awful lol

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    This is the only place I discuss wrestling. Seems like it’s safer that way.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Would you say it’s a…….safe space?

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      And even then I really only pay attention to what like five people have to say lol

    • Brian_Bayless

      “Wrestling Twitter” is the absolute worst.

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    Nene is still in the NBA? I thought he was long retired.

    • Thebraziliankid

      He started Vasco’s basketball team in Brazil. Back when we had tons of sports in the Club.

    • Bruce Chung

      Obviously not. He had some good years in DC, was bad last year, and joined Houston this year obviously.

      • Mikey

        Don’t think MMA follows NBA that much. I can see how a casual fan would forget about him after Denver

        • Bruce Chung

          I’m not following the NBA as much as I used to. I’m sure I’ll turn it on soon enough.

  • Night

    Do regular dogs see police dogs and say, “oh shit! A cop!”?

    • No.

      • Sexy Miz

        Correct. They say “BARK! BARK!”

        • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

          Mine used to say ‘woof woof’ but I think she was from Canada.

          • Sexy Miz

            Did she ever see a police dog? Pretty sure they change to bark bark on that occasion.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      Well, now I’m never getting to sleep. Thanks for nothing!

      • Night

        I know. It’s ruff…

          Son of a bitch!

    • *applause*

  • WWF1987

    TNA has a live PPV tomorrow night lol?

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Yep! Should be awesome!

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      Had zero idea.

    • Mikey

      Amazing how no one cares either.

      Man, even when I started posting here a few years ago, TNA was still considered the clear number two after WWE. Now they’re a joke

      • Sexy Miz

        Is there a clear number two?

        • Rick Poehling

          Based on actually turning a profit as a wrestling company? Probably ROH.

          • Sexy Miz

            Better than New Japan?

          • Rick Poehling

            Thought you were only talking about North American companies. No, I’d assume that NJPW would be a stronger choice if we’re going worldwide, then. I’m genuinely curious on how the British indies like Rev Pro and Progress do, though; considering all the talent coming from those countries these days, there has to be at least a decent scene there, I wonder who the top company is.

    • Is it Genesis?

      • Sexy Miz

        They could only get Mike And The Mechanics.

    • Rick Poehling

      Aren’t they taping TV today? How are they going to have a live PPV after…..oh, who gives a shit.

    • Sexy Miz

      The NEW AND IMPROVED TNA!

    • Stan Ford

      Oh, cool!

      I hope the champion retains. It’s too soon to take the belt off… EC3, I think? Eddie Edwards? Lashley? Galloway! No?

  • Mikey

    I don’t see how the Cavs are heels when one guy on the Warriors actual gimmick is kicking guys in the nuts

    • Sounds like a Vince McMahon babyface to me!

    • Bruce Chung

      With all the pussies in the world, getting low blowed isn’t a heel move anymore lol

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        Spoken like a dude that can’t deal with words on the internet =D

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      Because secretly everyone knows Lebron is better than what’s her name

  • chicagodem79

    Watching random old Bulls/Knicks games from the 90s

    Real talk: Watching games from MSG when the Knicks were good is a joy. The crowd energy is amazing unlike anything you see today.

    • Mikey

      You have me tempted to bust out my Jordan collection this weekend! It has some of MJs high profiled games with the Bulls and then those “Michael Jordan’s Playground” and “Michael Jordan: Airtime”
      Profiles

  • Sexy Miz

    Big Ten should be banned from major bowl games, unless it’s just to show a mid-major team its place.

  • Edward M

    I’m trying to find logic in storylines. What does Orton (a guy who has won basically every title known to man 500 times) get out of being an underling to a glorified jobber Bray Wyatt?

    • Bray silences the voices in his head.

    • Bruce Chung

      The way it happened almost seemed Orton got tired of fighting Wyatt and his mind games. So he joined them just to solve that problem.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      Sister Abigail is the only chick in the fed he hasn’t made feel uncomfortable yet

  • What up folks?

    • Sexy Miz

      Depends what you mean by “up”.

  • Sexy Miz

    Prediction: PPAP will be even bigger in 2017 than it was in 2016.

  • WWF1987

    The Tyrod Taylor surgery story is hilarious.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Has anyone ever traveled to see the northern lights? I was told this was the last really good year until 2025.

    • Bones

      They’ve said a few times they could be seen as far south as I am but they’re full of shit.

    • I’ve never traveled for that purpose. I saw them really well from near Calgary once though, and you can sometimes see little flashes even in my area once you are outside the city. That’s a bit rare, but it happens.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      I can see them from my house sometimes.

    • PeteF3

      Don’t need to. Saw ’em at this time of year, at this time of day, in this part of the country, localized entirely within my kitchen.

      • djowalsen: Known Hater

        Nice.

      • It’s odd that they smelled like steamed hams.

      • Buster Abbott

        ….can I see them?

    • Mikey

      My best friend lived in Alaska til he was six and said it was one of the greatest things he’s ever seen. I just don’t wanna travel to Alaska to see them

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      I showed them to my GF a few months ago, driving back from a trip to see her family. Her reaction was the same as if I’d pulled out a rope and lassoed the moon.

  • Bones

    Easy **** tag match 1/21/89 NWA.

  • PeteF3

    Since we’re talking great old games, one that I watched the other day that was absolutely terrific and captivating: Mets-Dodgers, 1988 NLCS Game 4. Just a shit-ton of crazy stuff happening during and even before that game started. No emotional investment in either team, but it was compelling baseball with the classic Michaels/Palmer/McCarver announce team.

  • PeteF3

    Also, no spoilers, but the NXT tapings look like ass. There’s, like, no reason to watch anything until Takeover, except maybe one particular match.

    • Mikey

      The roster isn’t very deep right now.

    • WWF1987

      So it’s NXT then?

      • PeteF3

        I might have to write a treatise on the Fallacy of Great Matches. Generally, give me a 4-hour comp of classic Memphis TV or any territorial TV over a 4-hour comp of ****+ matches. Give me something to emotionally invest in. NXT isn’t doing that for me at the moment. It hurts that I don’t really follow the indy scene much and now everyone who comes in is an established indy guy who’s “the hottest free agent in sports entertainment.”

        Honestly, if WWE want to completely make over O’Reilly, Rowe, and Cole with new names and everything, I’d be for it.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I love the indie scene, but everyone needs to have an established character. I also hate how NXT is just the exact same guys from the indies but with a new name and no direction.

          • PeteF3

            I’m hoping Hero can be a shot in the arm, if he doesn’t go straight to the main roster. Yeah, he’s fat, but he’s one guy who comes off as a real asskicker and not a guy out to be a Workrate Machine.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            He goes all out every match. That guy was the best wrestler of the year last year.

          • PeteF3

            That’s the thing. Be believable and be true to yourself and let the great matches come. They will.

    • Sexy Miz

      Nakamura probably isn’t regretting his decision to jump, but he’s probably not thinking it was the slam dunk right thing to do either.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        He doesn’t care as long as the checks cash.

        • Sexy Miz

          But are the checks better enough to compensate the NXT Nomad Life?

          • Kenny_Reigns

            That’s the big question. But it does seem to be his retirement plan and an excuse to live in the US for a while.

          • maskedcabana

            He’s with his wife and kid. Doesn’t seem too bad.

      • Why would he regret it? He’s a smart dude, so he probably got the money he wanted. He was treated like the biggest signing ever and he’s the champ there and looks like he’s having fun. Eventually, he’ll get called up and get a HUGE WrestleMania entrance.

        I don’t see what there is to regret.

    • Brian_Bayless

      NXT has been bland since Takeover Dallas

    • maskedcabana

      They’re building to the Takeover show so they’re not going to give away anything good till then.

      • PeteF3

        I’m fine with that, it’s just that the build doesn’t seem very compelling.

        OK, I don’t think I’m spoiling much with this: there’s a Roode/Nakamura contract signing segment, and the spoilers just sound lame as hell. I don’t need a cliched beatdown angle, but it was just the two guys trading cutesy insults for like ten minutes.

  • Bruce Chung

    Holtby gets the shutout. Streak is over. Bob gave up five for all you fantasy players.

    • Night

      Yay I had Holtby.

  • Andrew Champagne

    My favorite great, forgotten game was a college basketball contest between Texas and Oklahoma State in 2007. They went to triple-OT, Kevin Durant scored an absurd amount of points, and this ridiculous shot happened: https://youtu.be/mDJobMCCKCo?t=35s

    • Mikey

      I became a KD fan after that game. Shame there’s close to a zero percent chance he won’t become one of the NBAs all time greats

      • Andrew Champagne

        Unlike a lot of people, I LOVED him going to the Warriors. He risked becoming his generation’s Patrick Ewing, a fantastic player who ran into better teams at the peaks of their powers year after year.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I’m cool with it, too. The league is different now. Superstars load up on one team now.

          • Mikey

            Yeah but he’s a bitch and isn’t LeBron and isn’t coming back to OKC to win one for them.

          • TomaxAndXamot

            I don’t like Durant, either, but a franchise that can’t win a title with KD/Westbrook/Harden/Ibaka probably doesn’t deserve one.

  • White Thunder

    I have to recommend Bruce Prichard’s podcast. Just an absolute treasure trove of insider info / stories and Bruce clearing up a lot of long standing rumors.

    • TomaxAndXamot

      Starting recapping it for the Blog, so I don’t have to listen to it.

      • White Thunder

        1. No, 2. It’s really worth the listen, no guests just Bruce and the dude that was on Flair’s podcast picking a topic and diving into it. Some of them are over 3 hours long.

        • Mikey

          Conrads hillbilly voice bothered me for a while but I’ve gotten used to it and I like that he isn’t afraid to trash Bruce for the bad shit they tried to get over

          • White Thunder

            It’s refreshing that he doesn’t kiss his ass the whole show and will call him out on some shit. Bruce calling him out on some of the long standing smart mark rumors is equally entertaining.

          • Mikey

            “FUCK MELTZER”

      • White Thunder

        Scott couldn’t afford me.

    • Mikey

      It’s a great listen. I generally listen to them before going to bed over a several day period.

    • Starscreamlive

      Something to Wrestle With? Making sure before I hit the subscribe button.

      • White Thunder

        Yes that’s the one, best Wrestling podcast by a country mile right now.

        • Thanks for the suggestion. I was just lamenting that I need a new podcast now that fantasy football season is over.

        • Bones

          Thanks. Austin’s just bee shitty Teddy Fowler, Cornette’s is good when he sticks to wrestling, Jericho’s is hit or miss.

          • White Thunder

            Ryback’s is also surprisingly really good.

          • Starscreamlive

            Ryback has a podcast?

          • White Thunder

            Yeah it’s just him and his friend wrestler Pat Buck.

          • Starscreamlive

            I love Cornette when he’s discussing wrestling. But he wants to talk politics for most of the show and I can’t tolerate that crap.

          • White Thunder

            Cornette is too hyper and annoying and just not reasonable.

          • Bones

            Current stuff yeah, he can’t seem to grasp that Pandora’s Box has been opened and 1985 isn’t coming back anytime soon.

        • Starscreamlive

          Thanks. I’ll give it a chance.

          Better tha Colt Cabana’s? I thought Austin, JR, and Jericho beat out Cabana for a while, but I’ve grown tired of all of those. I’ve never grown tired of Colt’s podcast.

          • White Thunder

            I’m not really a fan of Colt.

          • Starscreamlive

            Fair enough

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Colt’s is really, really good.

    • Mikey

      What’s your opinion on how much he hates Meltzer?

      • White Thunder

        Most guys who actually worked in the office did hate Meltzer so it’s understandable.

    • Jesus CHRIST, each episode is 3 hours long!

      • White Thunder

        Several are, most are over 2 hours, they go deep into the topics.

        • Do they do a new one every week?

          • White Thunder

            I think so, I just discovered and I’ve been pouring through them this week.

  • Napoleon Blownapart
  • johntcole
    • maskedcabana

      That tron graphic.

    • speaking of tubby fit….

    • PeteF3

      Surprised they brought his old name back.

      • johntcole

        I’m guessing he didn’t want to give up the trademark and personal use.

        • PeteF3

          Possibly, but I’d have expected them to come up with something new entirely before going back to Ohno, if only because a company as brand-conscious as WWE would tend not to go for two “KO” guys. Now I really wonder if O’Reilly keeps his name even if he doesn’t really have a knockout gimmick.

          • johntcole

            They’d just not call him KO?

          • maskedcabana

            2 fat guys named KO would be too confusing.

          • PeteF3

            Well, they both have or had knockout gimmicks too, is the thing.

    • Biff ♥ You

      He went back to his old name? Oh, no!

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Chris Hero v a motivated Nakamura is a DREAM match!!!

      • johntcole

        Guessing it’s for Orlando. Maybe Hero loses some weight beforehand.

        • Biff ♥ You

          That would be my guess. I don’t think Bobby Roode stays in developmental long, already being at his age.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          He doesn’t need to lose any weight. He kicks ass as a big fat guy.

  • Why are all the sweaters on amazon slim fit? WHere are the tubby fit sweaters?

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I’ve gotten in great shape this past year, but slim fit still sucks. They’re not made for guys with big chests.

      • Mikey

        Im fairly thin and still stray away from slim fit tops. I only wear slim fit jeans and get poked fun at that they are skinny jeans.

  • Bones

    But yeah my wrasslin podcast list is Austin, Cornette, JR, Jericho, RBR and Solomonster.

    I usually pick and choose since I only listen at work and when I’m not on the helpline phone.

    Like I don’t care when Jericho has shitty/washed up rockers, Austin having Fowler on there or when Cornette talks politics.

    • White Thunder

      I actually like when Jericho has metal guys or paranormal guests on.

  • It’s not hyperbole when I say I care more about the upcoming BoD Royal Rumble than I do about the World Junior Hockey Championships.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Might even see a triple Marvspin on that show

      • Bones

        You do need to add more “spin” moves to Marv’s arsenal.

        • Brian_Bayless

          A Marvspin to set up the Double Marvspin

    • cabspaintedyellow

      Holy shit.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I care more about it that the actual Royal Rumble…

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    I’m trying to convince Edna that she should take the last vacation days she has left and we pack up and drive to the Grand Canyon. So far my argument consists of, “I don’t know, it just feels right.”

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Always trust a gut feeling!

    • Dude, you JUST got back to your own bed like a week ago.

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        Right, but the Grand Canyon is great. I’ve never seen it in winter.

        • It’s slipperier. My wife fell down at one of the outlooks. (Note: she didn’t fall *over* one of the outlooks.)

  • Bones

    The podcast market is definitely flooded. I only have X amount of time and there’s SO many.

    • PeteF3

      Wrestling podcasts have become the British comedy panel shows of the audio medium. Or something.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      I ran into the same problem, I skip all the wrestling stuff because I figure anything good will get repeated here.

    • White Thunder

      I do, Jericho, Jamey Jasta, Fightbox, occasionally Austin, Flair, Higherside, and now Prichard.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      Man, then you’re gonna HATE the Marvcast, The Bayless Initiative, and The CabsPainted Fellows.

      • Bones

        No Bones About It. Coming March 2017

    • Mikey

      I listen to P2B Nation Clotheslinss and Headlines and Main Event, a few on MLW including Prichard, and then on Observer I listen to WOR and Bryan and Vinny

  • cabspaintedyellow

    It’s time for the percolator.

  • Brian_Bayless
    • cabspaintedyellow

      HHH looks so dissatisfied with the size of the man whose hand he’s shaking.

    • Rick Poehling

      Well. That’s a thing.

      Man, they really are taking everyone, aren’t they?

    • They won’t let him be Chris Hero? Oh….. no.

      • Catering budget is gonna take a hit.

        It’s actually good he’s not Chris Hero. When he gets to the main roster Vince would probably make Chris Hero, the Sandwhich man.

        • “I’m the Sandwhich man, Byron! The question is… WHICH sandWICH… am I going to eat?! Mwuahaha!”

    • Curtis Williams

      Trips looks excited

      • maskedcabana

        “Welp, time to increase the catering budget.”

        • “Hey man, it’s Paul… yeah, we’re gonna need to increase the orders… um, well… do you remember when Kevin Owens was here?…. yeah, those kinds of numbers.”

  • Every time that I hear Dr Death talk, I understand where the template for Eugene came from.

    • I remember his voiceover from WWF Attitude (PS1) was so atrocious that I actually thought it was an intern dubbing his voice as a rib.

  • Brooks

    Someone reported Shane was backstage at the nxt tapings. Wonder why. Trying to remain friendly with hhh?

  • Curtis Williams

    Why does WWE hate the Chris Hero name

    • WWF1987

      Hero might not want WWE to own the rights.

      • Mikey

        Do they own “Samoa Joe” though? I thought they laxed on that shit?

      • But NXT has that loophole now where guys get to keep ownership of their names in exchange for sync rights for merch licensing. Like Samoa Joe.

      • Stan Ford

        Or because it sounds indie and low rent as shit.

        • Because Kassius Ohno is a bonafide Wrestlemania main eventer.

        • JimbobJones

          Really? And “The Rock” sounds cooler? Or what about “Hulk Hogan”?

          • Stan Ford

            They do. They sound like superheroes.

            Chris Hero sounds like something a dude named Chris came up with 5 minutes before his match and they said “eh, whatever. Sure.”

  • My cousin’s wife’s Facebook is still blowing up over Netflix and chill.

    • This is great

      • There’s probably 30 comments from people who had either never heard the term, or have heard it, and know there’s something to it, but their teenagers won’t explain it to them.

    • Netflix and chill is for losers. That’s cheap. I’m going for Netflix and THRILL.

      • Who needs a code to get laid? Just send em a dick pic like a grown up.

    • JimbobJones

      Now here’s my problem with it… doesn’t what you WATCH on Netflix influence the “Chill”?

      I mean, if you’re watching Shameless, and parts make you want to Chill, I’ll understand.

      If you’re watching The Angry Birds movie, that’s another story.

  • P.K.

    Great game between the Rockets and Thunder…Westbrook has 49 points…

  • Curtis Williams

    This OKC/Houston game is getting good

  • P.K.

    Damn Ariza..That shit was WIDE open

  • P.K.

    So many bricks..

  • Mikey

    I love that Meltzer treats himself like an actual sports journalist and then just makes something up that never existed before and expects people to take him seriously. Treat your system seriously and like an analyst or treat yourself like a joke and be a comedy guy. Don’t try to be both

    • Seriously. The 6 star thing is such a geeky fanboy thing to do. I’m honestly shocked he would do something so stupid. He essentially whipped out his dick and pissed on 30 years of equity as a credible journalist.

      • Night

        Come on. That’s a little hyperbolic. He’s covering pro wrestling, for Christ’s sake.

        • Granted, but the 6 star thing is just…. really lame. I don’t know.

        • Meltzer takes his ratings less seriously than pretty much EVERYONE else.

          • Comdukakis

            he should. They’ve been overinflated for a couple years now. I mean I enjoy WWE more than most here but Damn he’s gone soft with some of these ratings on these throwaway ppvs

      • Did he legitimately review the match and give it ******, or did he throw that out there as hyperbole?

        • Rick Poehling

          No idea how he meant it, probably to troll people, but he did indeed give it ****** without comment at the end of his review in the Observer this week.

          • When I used to subscribe, the end of each section was a row of *******. It’d be hilarious if everyone were freaking out over a typo.

        • He gave it the first ever ****** rating, because it was the best match he has ever seen.

    • The 6 star thing is pretty lame.

    • It’s his system, which he says isn’t meant to be anything but his system. If he wants to add a star, I think he’s allowed.

    • JimbobJones

      Scott once had a hot pokers up the ass ratings system

      I think an extra star isn’t the end of the world.

      • RudoWakening

        Thanks, Robb Black!

        • JimbobJones

          I’m missing the reference…

          • RudoWakening

            I think he came up with that system when reviewing an XPW show, which was owned by Mr Black

      • Mikey

        Scott is a reviewer of shows. Meltzer covers shows and sees himself as a pro wrestler journalist

        • JimbobJones

          You’re right! We take our fake fighting SERIOUSLY around these parts!

    • Night

      But is grading matches part of being a sports journalist? Or is it just scoops and explaining news?

  • Brian_Bayless
    • P.K.

      Meltzer is clearly out of touch with reality…

    • At least he is embracing the absurdity of this whole thing.

    • Rick Poehling

      Dude, this morning, he was just wrecking fools after the show. He clearly had zero fucks to give today.

  • RudoWakening

    Had to clean out behind the paint counter at work and now I can’t breathe. Thanks, allergies!

  • Brian_Bayless
    • P.K.

      PPW is officially better than ROH, TNA, and NJPW

    • The Rabid One

      Big Fish, Small puddle

    • Is this the same PPW as the old PS1 video game? Lol

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    So much anger over the ****** match rating…

    You guys should mount an appeal to the Global Catch-As-Catch-Can Council in Luxembourg.

    • Everyone knows the GCACCC are all paid-off lackeys!

    • RudoWakening

      I thought their headquarters was in Vienna?

      • You’re thinking of the WCW International Championship Committee.

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        It moves every 7 years. It used to be in Vienna: before that Oslo, Grenoble, Sapporo, Louisville…

    • I don’t really care. I never look at Meltzer’s ratings anyhow.

      But I’m a stickler for systems in general and I don’t like to see established systems altered. A little OCD maybe, I dunno.

  • Bones

    1989 NWA is starting off aces.

  • Brian_Bayless
    • RudoWakening

      HA!

    • I think it was ******* personally

      • If you’re not going to take your rating system seriously how am I supposed to take you seriously?

        • Brian_Bayless

          He said it was the best match he ever saw so he gave it the highest match rating he ever did.

        • The answer is – don’t.

        • You should take Meltzer’s rating system as seriously as he does.

          In other words, take the stick our of your ass.

          (Not yours, in particular. Really, just in general)

  • Night

    I think this six star thing is the funniest shit ever.

    • Comdukakis

      Fuck Cena.

      Figured I’d get that in somewhere

    • maskedcabana

      How dare you make a mockery of rating pretend fighting.

    • As in a pentagram? Used by SATANISTS??? We’re promoting fucking witchcraft and shit now???? WHAT THE FUCK???

      :: thinks ::

      Oh, wait. That’s a five pointed star. Six points is the Star of David.

      Oy vey.

  • The Professor

    http://www.wrestlecrap.com/inductions/2016gookervoting/

    Looking at the choices and I am having a hard time picking one

    • Comdukakis

      Global Gold. At least the otheres aren’t actually a criminal pyramid scheme

      • Kenny_Reigns

        That is a good answer.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Rebel vs Shelly was a thing of beauty

      • The Professor

        was that the “my vag” match?

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          yeah.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Meltzer dissing Isenberg is a good time

    https://twitter.com/davemeltzerWON/status/817069845627838464

    • Mikey

      You know Isenberg is one of Labars minions right? Dbag

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Isenberg seems like an idiot.

      • Mikey

        I’ve met him and I was 23 and asked to get a pic of him and he used it to mock me that I took a pic of him.

    • Bones

      Lol at “Dirty Jose’s” tweet below that one.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Now that is a ****** tweet

        • Bones

          Calling out WZ for just reprinting Meltz’s stuff

          • Brian_Bayless

            When Meltzer retires, its gonna be a rough day for wrestling scoops

  • P.K.

    Rockets win…Westbrook couldn’t get 50…He tried like a motherfucker tho

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    Negotiations are heavy, I’m trying to find alternative destinations and I keep running into winter.

    • What the hell are you babbling about now?

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        I want to go to the Grand Canyon tomorrow and I am told this is madness so I am tempering my desires down to, say, the beach or something but it is pouring rain there. The Grand Canyon is almost 60 degrees on Saturday mind you. This should be simple.

        • The Professor

          I was there yesterday; very beautiful

        • Who doesn’t want to go to the Grand Canyon? This is madness.

          • The Professor

            hoss

          • It’s a big fucking hole in the ground. I fail to see the attraction.

            Maybe if Evel Knievel tries to jump it. But he ded.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            The fact that I refuse to fly is slowing this process down considerably.

          • If you convince them to go, can you find one particular park ranger for me and say hi to her?

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Probably not.

          • Awww. That would freak my friend out.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            It’s a rather big park.

          • It’s a rather big hole.

          • You’re a smart boy, you can figure it out…

            Well… you’re wife can figure it out.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Six Stars or whatever is fine but you can’t tell me with a straight face that match was better than hart/austin at wrestlemania.

    • P.K.

      Amen.. Or Reigns vs Triple H either…

    • :: with a straight face ::

      That match was better than hart/austin at wrestlemania.

  • TomaxAndXamot

    Thunder drawing up their last play for Kanter is a good way to lose.

    • Bones

      Billy Donovan can go fuck himself, then, now and forever for when his Florida team choked against UCONN and cost me $500.

      I hope he slips and falls from the grease in his hair.

  • This six star match, will it be on AXS this week or next?

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      its on youtube.

    • P.K.

      I heard it was streaming on a site called wrestlingforgeeks or something like that

  • That’s why I never give anything top marks in any sort of rating system. Whether it’s wrestling matches or rating a tourist attraction.

    For your system to work, you need a ceiling, and if you award 5 stars – essentially perfection – and then you come across something that you like better, the integrity of the entire system is compromised.

    I’ve never given a match 5 stars, and I’ve never given a hotel room 5 stars. Because there could always be something better.

    • Brian_Bayless

      This is a ****** comment

      • On a **************** system?

          On a ************ system

          • JimbobJones

            You make things complicated.

            My post is *^18

    • Something is always the best. At least until something is better, then IT is the best.

      And so on.

      etc.

    • Rating something on a scale of 1 to 5 sort of implies that even something that is five stars isn’t going to be absolute apex perfection, as opposed to rating something on a scale of 1 to 100.

      Which is why all those 1/4 star ratings bug the shit out of me.

  • Curtis Williams

    This six stars debacle is why shit like that WWE Network shows that shits on smarks exists

  • Night

    Meltzer should double down. Next time a great match happens, he should say there aren’t enough stars in the night sky to fully rate it.

  • Rick Poehling

    I wrote this in the other thread, but now I’m thinking that the top of the ***** scale should be Emmy Rossum in Shameless. Thoughts?

    New possible rating system: nude scenes.

    On one end of the scale, Kathy Bates from Sideways = DUD, while Alexandra Daddario from True Detective = *****.

    “When it comes to Omega/Okada, I give it 4 and 1/4 Anne Hathaways from Love and Other Drugs.”

    • I’m watching Shameless now with my girlfriend. I forgot how fucking sexy Emmy Rossum is.

  • P.K.

    I think Soulja Boy vs Chris Brown is gonna be a ****** boxing match…

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Roger Ebert always used to get crap about star ratings, which he hated. He always advised readers not to go so much by the stars as the content of the reviews.

    • The Professor

      I always liked the thumbs up system

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        When they added “way up” and “way down” to it, it was a very useful system.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      As a reviewer, I was always happy my boss didn’t make me implement a grade system of some kind.

      It forces people to actually read the damn review, and not dismiss your opinion out of hand just because it doesn’t conform to some arbitrary grade.

  • TomaxAndXamot

    From Harden vs Westbrook to… these teams…

  • Wrestling matches I don’t really care, I’ve literally never even looked up a Meltzer rating, but something like hotels or resorts, I am actually interested in a critical opinion of them before I spend my money, and if you’re loose with your stars, then you’re just fucking around.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      The problem with those ratings systems is how arbitrary they can be.

      “This place didn’t leave a mint on my pillow?! ONE STAR.”

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        You should surely deduct at least one half star for such an insult.

      • I fucking HATE that on casino hotel reviews. “We didn’t win anything. One star.”

      • Yeah, you have to weed out a lot of shit. I’ve seen people review resorts that were quite frankly shit, but give 5 stars and a comment about how others are just complainers.

    • The Professor

      I always look at the star ratings for restaurants and hotels and tours. Usually it is a good measure if a place is good/great/bad.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        In a lot of instances the only people leaving reviews are those who had bad experiences, but it definitely helps you stay away when you see a ton of bad reviews.

        • The Professor

          I will usually try to do some for recent trips like for restaurants or tours or shows.

  • Now that Meltzer has changed his rating system, I’m curious what other classic matches you guys think deserve 6-star consideration?

    • cabspaintedyellow

      He didn’t really change it though. This is just a one-off match, and he figured the best possible way to communicate how good he thought it was would be to give it some impossible star rating. But I don’t think he’s judging everything on a six star scale.

      • Buffalo Hopscotch

        The amount of talk and angst one man adding a * to his rating of a wrestling match is amazing.

        • cabspaintedyellow

          I wish I could care as much about anything as people care about Meltzer’s star ratings.

          Seriously, who the fuck cares? Agree or don’t agree, but the man is well within his rights to rate a match seven oranges, if he wants.

          • Buffalo Hopscotch

            It reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons where Homer becomes a food critic.

            “This gets my lowest rating ever. 7 thumbs up”

  • Curtis Williams

    Lakers vs Blazers….this is a game alright

  • The Professor

    Occasionally I read reviews for places like Disneyland. “I have been going there for 25 years and always loved it. However today, it is was too crowded and lines were too long. 1 star”

  • Brian_Bayless

    LOL at everyone shitting on a WrestleZone guy for the site ripping off Meltzer’s news

  • cabspaintedyellow

    “I went to the BoD. I found the posters churlish and redundant. If it had been a real place, I imagine there would have been a smell. One star.”

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Did you copy that from Mecca?

      • cabspaintedyellow

        I guarantee you no one at TNAMecca knows what the word churlish means.

        • I doubt half the people HERE know what churlish means.

          • cabspaintedyellow

            Google to the rescue!

            adj. rude in a mean-spirited and surly way.

            “it seems churlish to complain”

            synonyms: rude, ill-mannered, ill-bred, discourteous, impolite, unmannerly, uncivil, unchivalrous; More

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            Only a churl would take such a low view of the BoD.

          • Comdukakis

            I’m not churlish but I am a curmudgeon

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          See. That should have been a dead give away.

  • Gnight BoD.

    • Night, champ

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Gnight Hoss!

    • cabspaintedyellow

      “Hoss went to bed before midnight. One star.”

      (Goodnight!)

  • Now I’m fired up raging mad about ranking systems. I just wanted to have a couple of laughs before I went to sleep. Instead I’m going to be up for the next three hours complaining about how if a C is average then why is the average grade a B-.

  • Curtis Williams

    Something that doesn’t get talked about enough is that Orton and Cena are on the same show and nobody has complained. I guess it helps that seems that they’re virtually in 2 different universes.

    • Comdukakis

      thanks for reminding me. My head may explode now.

      But Orton isn’t too terrible now. Doesn’t dominate the show. Still don’t care for him, but he’s a small part of SD. Cena on the other hand…

  • The Professor

    One thing I do like to read in reviews is little tips about the place. Example: at a hotels, get the south side room to get a good view of X OR don’t get a room on level 3 because that is just above the club.

  • Mikey

    If six star matches exist now, then Shawn-Taker from 25 gets my vote. I didn’t even watch the WHC triple threat til after the fact because I was so shocked and Chainsmokin cigs because I was so floored. I think there is a zero percent chance that Omega-Okada is better than that match because HBK

  • Bruce Chung

    Watching a bit of Lakers at Blazers. The Lakers are on the path to the Blazers unless they can get more pieces. Blazers aren’t gonna improve unless they hit a home run in the draft or somehow land a huge FA.

    • Comdukakis

      Lillard and CJ are good enough as a big two. They need a third star.

      • P.K.

        Agreed…They need a third star, preferably a great PF/C

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        More like six stars amirite

  • So wrestling twitter is clearly worse than us.

    • I knew there had to be somebody!

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      ” twitter is clearly worse than us.”

      ftfy

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Yes, but even Vince won’t use the word “twitter” on Bring it to the Table because then he couldn’t boast about his social media numbers.

  • Apparently this is not the first time Meltzer has given a six star rating. Unless he is just trolling everybody.

    • maskedcabana

      By the reaction he’s gotten, you know he’s totally trolling.

      • No apparently he gave Misawa vs. Kawada 6 stars in 1994. He posted that on Twitter in response to someone asking, and he seems serious unless I’m missing some really obscure in-joke about that match.

      • The more people get bent out of shape about it, the more he’s gonna troll.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Exactly. And the tweets coming his way are from crazy people

  • Experienced Monster

    Basically the Meltzer thing is this:

  • Brian_Bayless

    Here is this Isenberg fellow’s profile on WZ:

    “Josh Isenberg has worked for Wrestlezonesince 2009. He currently writes reaction articles to WWE Raw, WWE Smackdown, WWE NXT and all Pay-Per-View events. Josh is also the Co-Creator of Chair Shot Reality, which reaches between 75-100,000 views per weekend.

    Josh controls most of the creative writing and ideas for the show on a weekly basis, as well as an on-air talent.

    Aside from working with WrestleZone, Isenberg began his career in Broadcast Journalism interning at ESPN and worked with CBS Radio for three years. He has also had the opportunity to interview some of the best athletes and performers alive, including Andrew McCutchen, Ben Roethlisberger, Chris Jericho, Billy Gunn, Karl Anderson, Matt Hardy, Steven Strasburg and others.

    Currently, Josh Isenberg works for Major League Baseball in their Advanced Media Productions. He grew up in Pittsburgh and went to Point Park University, which is where Chair Shot Reality is filmed each week.

    His life outside of his obsession with wrestling include being a savant for Seinfeld, NFL, NBA, MLB and many television shows. He also has an undying love for musicals, which includes many shows he was a part of in high school. Some of his favorite wrestling moments can be linked to such superstars as Edge, The Rock, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and The Great Khali.”

    • I want to lock this guy and Tim Kail in a room together and toss in a flash bang, just blind them both, and then walk in and beat them about the head with a chair.

      • PeteF3

        Can we throw David Shoemaker and Joe Babinsack in there as well?

        • I’ll allow it.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Is Babinsack still around?

          • PeteF3

            I haven’t heard anything from him in probably 3 years, but since I haven’t heard any news of his death, we should probably play it safe and get him in there.

    • Bones

      Madden and now this guy…thanks Pittsburgh!

    WTF? Kyle Korver was traded to the Cavs?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Millsap seems to be next to go from Atlanta

      • P.K.

        Yup…They don’t wanna let him walk like Horford did and get nothing in return

    • Jackson Smith

      Every team needs a white boy 3 point shooter.

      • P.K.

        Well the Cavs upgraded their white boy 3 point shooter from Dunleavy to Korver

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        They definitely need threes with JR Smith out.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        More like they need cap room.

    • P.K.

      Under the current framework of the trade, the Cavs will send Mo Williams, Mike Dunleavy and a protected 2019 first-round pick to Atlanta for Korver, sources said.

      The teams are still in discussions about moving Dunleavy to a third team, the sources said.

      In a separate deal, the Cavs have agreed to send their 2017 first-round pick to Portland in exchange for their 2018 first-round pick, which the Trail Blazers already own, a source said. This would enable the Cavs to use their 2019 pick to make the deal with Atlanta

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I’m sad to see Mo Williams go! He was a staple of the team…

        • P.K.

          Yeah, I thought they’d keep him too…I don’t think he’s played much this year tho..

      • Why would Portland trade to get the 2017 pick instead of 2018? The Cavs are more or less guaranteed to draft 29th or 30th this year. Wouldn’t you rather risk a chance for a big injury or something and hold on the 2018 pick?

        • P.K.

          It’s not going to be in the top 20 unless LeBron and Kyrie both get injured, which is highly unlikely…Everyone keeps saying it’s a deep draft this year too..

  • Ok, I’m watching Civil War. I’ll advise of my rating later on.

      You stole RVD’s finisher?

      • Nick Demola

        Yeah. It was a horrible character. I wasn’t kinda being sarcastic.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        You mean he stole Eddie Guerrero’s finisher.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Who stole Art Barr’s finisher.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Huh, I didn’t know that. I’ve never seen him wrestle.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Yeah, Art Barr used to do it and when he died Eddie started using it to honor his former tag partner.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Did he ever work anywhere besides AAA? Don’t think he was ever in WCW or WWF.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Nope. Art Barr wasn’t allowed in the US, really. He was a pederast.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    So I placed the cans in some hot water, to wash the soda blood of their fallen comrade off of them, they are less solid now and I feel like the chances of explosion are now smaller.

  • Bones

    Lol in high school, we had our trampoline/backyard wrestling league.

    I was flashy heel Smooth Operator with devastating moves like the Smooth Move, Moonlight Driver and Sexyplex.

  • Andrew Champagne

    So Sid tosses Hogan out clean in an “every man for himself” match, Hogan whines at ringside, and then Hogan helps Flair win the title…and SID is the heel???

  • Andrew Champagne

    And, finally, “PUT THAT CIGARETTE OUT!!!”

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    I found the perfect mix. Take a melatonin with a shot of whiskey, wait 30 minutes and start smoking weed. Blast off.

    • Bones

      Melantonin never did shit for me, it would knock me out for 3-4 hours with fucked up dreams and I would be wide awake.

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        That’s what it normally does to me. Which is excellent when you live life on routine of 3-4 hours of sleep. The whiskey is the catalyst. It turns the sleepiness into slightly altered perception.

        • Bones

          Whiskey is always the catalyst. What’s your poison tonight?

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Wild Turkey, I had some in the bathtub while reading a book about the 1972 presidential election. Now I am going to drink a few Sessions’

          • Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail?

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Boys on the Bus, it is quite good

          • Ah, yes it is.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            But the Campaign Trail book is also one of my favorites, it gets reread every two or three years at least.

          • Bones

            I have a nice scar from the base of my thumb to my wrist from Turk 101

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            I have a slight scar on my eye from drinking too much Turkey during a softball game a few years ago and sliding into third on my face. I was safe by the way.

          • Bones

            I punched out a window while stumbling home somewhere drunk in college for reasons I never knew why.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            I had to cover a college commencement ceremony after all that. Well, not cover but be present and snap some filler pictures. I recall walking around taking photos of excited young people while half my face was rubbed off like I’d just finished a match with a Rotten brother.

          • NO LADIES, PAY NO NEVERMIND TO HARVEY DENT WITH THE BIG CAMERA HERE.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Seriously. Like these cute white girls were accepting their honors and down in front of the staging area a twisted monster with scabs on his eyelid was just snapping away

          • I gotta say, I was half-expecting a “and that’s where I met Edna” swerve.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            I met here somewhere between my worst nightmare and defeat.

        • Huh, melatonin puts my ass TO SLEEP.

          The dreams can be fucky, but I damn sure wake up 8-10 hours later uninterrupted.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Decided to jump to 2008 when Cena came back to win the Rumble. Michael Buffer will never not be cool.

  • Andrew Champagne

    LOL at Santino coming in at #3 and getting superkicked by HBK.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    Starting up 1997 again, this Raw is taking an inordinate amount of time to get through.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Tommy Dreamer got a world-class hometown pop in the 2008 Rumble.

  • Bones

    My favorite scar and dumbest one.

    I have one in the middle of my palm from trying to stab a Hacksaw Jim Duggan wrestling figure with a broken cordless phone antenna and it stuck in my palm when I was about 5.

    I hated that useless dickhead even back then.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      Every scar I have comes from something related to overconsumption lol

      • Bones

        Ditto, probably 80% of them come from that other 15% sports and 5% or less from trying to stab a Duggan toy.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          I think my only non-drunk scarring is the one I have on my arm when I was upset with my parents and decided I was going to leave the house. I went to push through the screen door and it latched and I just sort of tumbled through the plate glass haha. Got up and shook myself off and kept yelling at my dad until my mom noticed the blood pooling around my feet.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            “Haha! Fuck you people! I’m 13 and I know what the fuck I’m OH GOD MOMMY I’M BLEEDING!”

          • Bones

            You get your forearm then?

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Right behind my elbow, it was a decent gash, took like six stitches or so. I was very proud to show my friends.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    Just watched all of Okada/Omega. Wowsers.

    Now watching Total Nonstop Deletion. That’s a good one too, right?

    • Rick Poehling

      Man, that’s…..man. I mean, that’s pretty much 2 complete opposites right there. You’re a brave man.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Son of a bitch! A Fresca has exploded in the garage!

    • Bones

      Dude I like the winter because I can keep canned beer outside, but if it gets below 25 the shit freezes solid.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I got frozen Cherry Cokes, Frescas are blowing up! My Old Style is fine but I am tired of cleaning up fucking soda ice!

        • Bones

          How cold is it where you’re at?

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            -8.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s eight below but it feels like eighteen below.

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            My -19 laughs at your -8.

          • Bones

            Holy fuck where are you guys at?

            It’s 12 here.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            It’s 30 here I’m in a pair of long johns, no shirt and smoking a cigarette out the window lol

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            Bemidji, Minnesota.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Sounds like a fun place for a Mania.

          • Bones

            Well that explains it

          • Aw geez! Real good then!

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Suburban Minnesota.

          • OHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO COLD.

        • I had a bottle of Aftershock explode on me. My pants smelled like diabetes for a week.

          • Bones

            Well if you would drink real booze that’s 80 proof or more the shit wouldn’t freeze.

            Man up. Coach O would wrestle you down and make you eat dirt.

          • DACOACHOKNOWYOUGOTTAGETDASUTHUNCOMFERT.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    I was roped into buying a bunch of clothes today so now I will try to keep them sitting out in the living room in the shopping bags they came in for as long as possible as a silent protest.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      I don’t really understand it. The clothes I had before weren’t tattered yet.

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      So it wasn’t a trick to drop you off on a county road?

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        It may as well have been.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Fuck it! Rezzie!

  • Bones

    Any of you alcs ever have a bad experience with booze to the point you can’t smell or drink the shit again?

    Mine is SoCo. I drank a fifth of it first night sophomore year in college and woke up in basketball shorts on a pile of garbage bags outside the next morning with barf everywhere.

    • HI THUNDERBIRD!

      • Bones

        I don’t think they sell classics like Thunderbird or Night Train in PA, but we do have MAD DOG.

        Which I drank two bottles of that then went out then watched Xavier Bethia Finkle a kick against Miami then put a hole in my wall.

        • Mad Dog is actually fine to me. I did get ripped on New Amsterdam to get ready for the 2011 BCS NATIONAL FUCKING TITLE GAME THAT WENT SO FUCKING WELL FOR ME so you can imagine how fun that whole experience was.

          • Bones

            The hell is New Amsterdam?

          • Mediocre gin.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      I don’t drink Tequila anymore but not because of the smell, it just generally leads to regrettable foolishness that I can’t even defend because I don’t remember any of it the next day. The closest is jaeger after drinking close to a fifth one Christmas, eating a bag of flaming hot cheetos, vomiting it all up outside and then falling directly into it hahaha. That was only like five or six years ago, I came back inside and Edna immediately ordered me to strip and sent me to the shower.

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        I remember it clear as day. Vomiting and looking to the sky with watery eyes, then putting my hand out to brace myself against the wall and just…slowly…sliding downward…lol

      • This gets the rare “upvote, un-vote, re-upvote” treatment.

        7 and 3/8th metric stars.

      • Bones

        I can’t upvote this enough

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          It was that kind of shitty mess where she couldn’t even be mad. Everyone just laughed at me in the living room while I stripped naked in the front doorway.

      • Curtis Williams

        I’m picturing you doing a Flair flop into that mess

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          LOL, very similar actually

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      SoCo led me into a relationship with some random chick. I only agreed to date her because they told me she liked it in the ass. It was an awful relationship. I wanna say it did other damage but damned if I can remember. I used to be able to handle the 100 proof. Shit tastes like bubblegum, fear and a hint of sorghum.

      • Bones

        I seriously get fucking queasy when I smell the shit.

        And never date a girl solely because she likes it up the dumper.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          I really don’t understand the appeal of anal. Call me old fashioned but I like a good simple vagina. It really does the trick.

          • Bones

            I’ve been with a fair amount and probably too many women and never got one up the poopshoot.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          She apparently thought I was hot shit. I just saw a Diet Pepsi with a hand connected to it and was like, “Yo. Lemmie have a pull of your soda.”

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      Jack Daniels. A bunch of us in high school got ripped on JD, wound up wandering around town on foot at 3 AM. Staggered into a grocery store when it opened, drank some grape soda & ate a croissant, spewed it up in the parking lot. 28 years later I still get nauseous at the smell of JD.

    • JimbobJones

      Mine is tequila.

      My last time was in Tijuana. I was there on a “work thing” with this other alcy, and I drank so much that, when we were driving back up, I leaned out the window and puked on the side of the company van. I sure hope the guy behind us wasn’t in a convertible.

      Nothing like waking up the next morning, still dry-heaving, to take the bus 20 miles and wash off the company van at 5:30 am

      Since then, I can’t even smell Ta-kill-ya without feeling nauseous.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Oh god. Snuka’s in this Rumble too.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Geez, even Carlito got a pop in this thing.

  • It is tremendous that Chris Berman’s best moment of commentary is when he shut up and let the crowd carry the show when Baseball Jesus broke Gehrig’s record.

  • Bones

    Another fun drunk story. In college I got drunk as hell and decided to cook chicken nuggets.

    Problem was I passed out on the couch while they were in the oven. My roommates were kind enough to put nuked nuggets on a plate with a bottle of hot sauce on table by me when I woke up.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    When we were young we’d shoplift constantly, generally alcohol and cigarettes, the things we couldn’t just go buy no matter how much money we scrounged together. I remember this girl that I was kind of with/kind of not had this entire system for stealing giant bottles of Fuzzy Navel. She’s walk into the store, shove two bottles into her pants, tighter up her belt then pull her shirt away from her body (so you couldn’t see the outline of the bottles) and walk out of the store SCREAMING about how it was a brand new shirt and she just got a stain on it. Like somehow causing a scene made her less suspicious. She was a fucking party.

    • And kids these days can shoplift weed! What a country!

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        That would be rather difficult. They’re on you like hawks to see ID when you get to the door. A lot of the stores have waiting rooms.

        • Booooo…that would be the greatest broke stoner story ever, to be the guy who shoplifted weed.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I used to steal it from my dad. That’s kinda close. Never stole from dealers though. I ain’t slick like that.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    What the hell just fucking fell down behind me!? I swear to god, Paul Stanley! If your arm just fell off again I will set you on fire!!

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      It was a random hotel key card I found at work. On the front it’s a picture of a lamb with the caption “Don’t be baaaaaaashful” underneath.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    I think if you add up the stars for all the matches on Total Nonstop Deletion it’ll be less than Okada/Omega.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    I really can’t understand straightedge people. I mean look at these stories. This is fun as hell. Straightedge people are like, “Well once I drank a Pepsi after 6 p.m. and couldn’t get to bed until 11?”

    • Bones

      Shit you only live once. Do you want to live until you’re 90 and shit yourself and not be able to take care of yourself? Or do you want to enjoy life?

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        Oh I can’t fucking wait to be shitting in my own pants. Paaaaaayback.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Shitting in other people’s pants sounds more fun. Harder but more satisfying.

          I’m crocked. Don’t mind me.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            I’m trying to catch up.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      A Pepsi after 6 PM is my nightmare!

  • Bones

    Not really a drunk story but a funny one.

    When we were in our mid 20s, there’s this event each summer when you build your own raft and float down the majestic Allegheny River. My one friend who’s raft it was took girls the one year and all they did was bitch so he said no more women.

    One year another friend, who was dating this girl for two weeks, bitched and moaned that she couldn’t go so he wouldn’t go. Made a stink and got all our girlfriends pissed at us at the time.

    On the raft trip, we buried him worse than DDP got buried in the WWE and two weeks later she stole $300 from him.

    The end.

    • Curtis Williams

      So is the moral of story that you and your friends need to pick better girlfriends?

      • Bones

        Don’t ditch your friends for some broad you met two weeks ago on a raft trip/bonding/booze time.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      I understand this situation but I never got dudes that wanted to do “dudes only” stuff. I had so many friends in high school/college that wanted to go “guys only” and it was always weird. “Let’s go camping for four days, just the guys man! No bitches!” I don’t really want to go out into the woods for four days without a girl. I don’t really want to go anywhere for four days without a girl lol

      • Bones

        Women would be fine, but women don’t like being on a small raft a few assholes built on an eight-mile, 6-10 hour trip down the river.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          Ah see Edna would be all in on that. She loves the outdoors especially if she gets to drink.

          • Bones

            You have a keeper then. We’d get drunk do dumb shit on the raft. We broke it one year when someone Goldberg’d someone else off the raft. Broke the support beam on the left side and the raft breaker had to sit on the corresponding 55 gallon drum so we wouldn’t sink.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            LOL All the floats we’ve done were on very lazy rivers. You just needed a few inner tubes tied together and one tube to hold the cooler with beer. We try to go every summer because it’s a nice way to get a tan in one weekend

          • Me and my ex went kayaking once. ONCE.

            I lost a shoe and an LSU hat and probably any chance of getting some by panicking like a toddler the first time I fell out, even despite having a fucking life jacket on.

          • Bones

            Don’t get Marv started on kayaking

          • Bones

            If it didn’t rain, it would be a motherfucker to make the trip. There were spots on the river that if you didn’t paddle, you would actually go in reverse if the wind was blowing.

      • JimbobJones

        If my wife was into the same stupidity I am, she’d be allowed on my “guy trip”, but she isn’t, and wouldn’t have any fun.

  • Andrew Champagne

    This is strange. 2008’s Rumble had all these great future prospects, guys like Punk, Morrison, Kennedy, Carlito, and Cody Rhodes. Who’s the one prospect from that Rumble still on the WWE roster? The Miz.

  • I can’t imagine Mrs. C had a fun day at work the day after her birthday lol.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      She was wrecked?

      • That was one of those “I’mma leave a Gatorade and a bucket next to the bed and keep the door cracked” kind of night for her.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          Those are the best. I had that on New Years. The last hour or so I basically had to carry the wife everywhere. She was shiiiiiiitfaced

      It helps that Bones and I actually went to college to pursue degrees in acute alcoholism.

      I also have none that involve me drinking. My friends got us into all sorts of trouble, though.

    • JimbobJones

      I have a friend whose first time getting massively drunk was at a sushi place with me and some friends when he was 33.

      He blew all of the capillaries around his irises throwing up. He had blood-red rings around his eyes for like a week.

      It was a friggin’ HILARIOUS story, which I’ll need to tell in a bit.

      • Gwen Crestfani – #5

        Hahaha, that’s fantastic

        • JimbobJones

          It’s one of those times where I was happy to be a seasoned drunk. One part of doing this shit early on is that you learn your limits while your body can still rebound.

  • Gwen Crestfani – #5

    It’s amazing we survived New Years honestly. It’s been a long time since I’ve been that wasted in public. And the wife and I were both wearing exceedingly nice clothing and managed to not screw it up at all.

  • Bones

    Looking back on it, from about 23-29 I was basically Hank Chinaski.

    • Gwen Crestfani – #5

      I think I was Country Mac from about 17-34. Like it’s crazy there is not a single photo of me from that period where I don’t have a beer in my hand.

      • Bones

        I’ve had to delete those off Facebook…

        18-23 I was just a drunk that gave little fucks. I started to decline or improve starting at 25.

        • Gwen Crestfani – #5

          Thankfully social media like that didn’t come around until I was deep into my 20s. Oh that would’ve been a mess. I absolutely would have been one of those mopey cunts sitting at home on a Friday making posts like “It’s nice to see people having fun when hearts are broken.” Bleeeeeh, oh boooo, I hate theoretical me lol

          • Bones

            Facebook became prevalent in my last year of college 2005.

            I said I wouldn’t join so my roommate made me a fake profile saying I was gay and enjoyed various things up my ass, so I caved and joined so he’d delete that one.

            He even photoshopped a People magazine cover with Lance Bass with the words “I’m gay” with my picture on it.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Hahaha, classic. These powers are dangerous in the wrong hands.

          • Bones

            I used to be somewhat decent at photoshop, I’ve lost my touch over the past couple of years.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            I think my favorite thing I ever did was a scrapbook for my nephew the year he spent almost entirely in the hospital with leukemia. I shopped him into a bunch of pictures all over the world, like “Sorry you’re stuck in here, but check it out here’s you at Easter Island, and here’s you at the Eiffell Tower.” Like that. I got HUGE points with that gift.

          • Bones

            That’s really thoughtful and nice Marv.

          • Gwen Crestfani – #5

            Up until 16 months ago he was my favorite person on earth. (He still kind of is, this kid of mine is a toss up at the moment lol)

      I managed to whittle my depravity down to two nights this year, the night in New York where I literally spilled a drink into my own lap in front of the BoD and then New Years.

    My last crazy drunk escapade was my birthday, April of 2001. 10 bars — 10 free birthday drinks. My handlers (a couple I worked with) & I ended up at a gay guy’s house looking at his Wizard of Oz collectibles (I swear to god). We left my male coworker to his fate, and I took his GF and made out with her in the woods.

    • Bones

      I was getting ready to graduate high school then lol

  • Bones, you seen what’s happening with Minnesota football and that shitstorm?

    • Bones

      A little bit, but not that much. Is it that bad?

      • It’s starting to look like the coach they just fired and the one he replaced are SUPER pissed at the administration. Players aren’t happy either.

        • Bones

          Something has to be up then. Usually there isn’t this much of a shitstorm.

          • Leidner (the QB) and another player basically came out and said “I don’t know why anyone would want to come play for this university right now.”

            That’s…less than ideal.

          • Bones

            Wow…usually the players don’t take that sort of stand when something goes down.

            Who in their right mind would take that job right now?

          • Hopefully P.J. Fleck. Not that I want Minnesota to get good or anything, but I’ve seen some people throw Dave Aranda’s name around for that and FUCK NO I WANT DAVE ARANDA TO STAY RIGHT WHERE HE IS.

          • Bones

            Sure it’s a major conference but no self-respecting coach would step in that dogshit.

            Fleck should hold out for a better job.

            Now major conference coaches, like Dan Mullen, shouldn’t wait.

          • LES MILES 4 MINNESOTA HC.

          • Bones

            Les can do much better than that.

          • He’s 63 and nobody seemed to want him in the last round of Coach Roulette. That’s kinda telling.

          • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

            The players don’t have much high ground to stand on. Do they just expect the school to pull a Baylor and pretend nothing happened?

    • Curtis Williams

      WTF even happened there?

      • It appears that a number of football players probably did some nasty shit to a girl that I don’t want to detail here, and weren’t charged. Now, there’s enough smoke to make me think there’s some fire there, and the players got suspended.

        A handful of players thought this was bullshit and boycotted, the coach stuck up for them, and got fired. And now, the previous coach is sticking up for the players and the current coach, so it looks like the football team has circled the wagons against what seemed like a reasonable move by the administration.

        • Phrederic

          Ugh, football players always gotta act like garbage, don’t they?

          • I think the good guy/bad guy ratio is actually WAY in favor of good guys. But the bad guy shit is both generally terrible and gets a lot of press, so it seems worse than it is.

          • Phrederic

            Good guys are all too willing to shut the fuck up when it comes to bad guys though.

            Have you ever heard of a player that’s outed one of their teammates for bad behavior?

          • Not while they’re in the locker room together. But players’ post-career biographies tend to be heavy on calling out teammates and coaches.

          • Phrederic

            After they’ve had the chance to do something.

            I dunno.

            If they want the benefit of the doubt. They gotta police themselves better.

          • I generally agree, don’t get me wrong. I wish cops and government employees did the same thing. But if I’m a receiver with an asshole quarterback, who does have some measure of control over how well I do, and that translates into me keeping my career, I might not be the first one to pipe up that he smacks women or something like that.

          • Phrederic

            Lotta money on the line. That does change shit.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    Tag Team Apocalypto was voted Match of the year, right?

  • Phrederic

    So, it really does seem that whomever was in charge of Jessica Jones and whomever is in charge of Luke Cage…were not communicating.

    A fairly essential plot point in Jessica Jones is that Luke Cage isn’t good at finding people, so he hires Jessica to do it for him.

    But then in Luke Cage we find out that he’s an ex-cop and perfectly capable of detective work?

    Plus if he’s so entrenched in Harlem…why was he chilling in Hell’s Kitchen with a bar?

    Maybe this shit will get explained but it seems a little wack so far.

            Autocorrect changes it sometimes haha

          • Phrederic

            My autocorrect goes to some weird directions.

            Like apparently whenever I write “Asian” it follows it up with woman’s and body.

            I DON’T EVEN WRITE THAT OFTEN!

          • I don’t use autocorrect on principle. I like the English language. I’d rather honor it by just misspelling words instead of letting an algorithm decide what I said.

          • Phrederic

            I’m pretty lazy so I’ll use it.

            But I will correct it if it’s wrong.

            Disqus is wrong ALL the time.

          • RedStorm

            Usually “I forgot” misspelled will autocorrect to “I faggot” and I don’t know if my phone is saying it’s gay, or calling me gay. I should probably ask Siri.

          • See? Autocorrect is a dangerous thing.

          • RedStorm

            It sneaks up on you and insults you.

          • It insults you and wouldn’t mind getting you fired for a laugh.

            Wait, shit, Autocorrect might be your bro.

          • RedStorm

            My district manager sent an email saying she will need to “edit all manager’s shits” and then followed it up not by saying “oops typo” but sending a profession email that said “sorry, fucking autocorrect”

        I’m in retail. I said that to a customer today and she went ballistic lmao.

        • The hottest I’ve ever had a customer get at me was when I got fed up with a guy who asked how much everything was every fucking time he came in and I finally told him “Y’know what, here’s a good rule of thumb, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.”

    • Phrederic

    So, the drinking story that ended up with a 33-year-old with demon eyes.

    From early 2010 to late 2012, there was a sushi place in my town that I found by accident that became my “Cheers”. I, and some of my friends, became friends with the owner (in the only time I’ve ever driven drunk before or since, but that’s a story for a different day). Me and my friends even had a shelf over the sushi bar dedicated to our “dead soldiers” — bottles of sake we’d finished with the sushi chef.

    Anyway, one night me and three of my friends head over there for a “guys night out” (our kids were all a good deal smaller back then and, as anyone with small children would tell you, if you get the chance to get away from them for a night, you do)

    We started drinking. Everyone else there was a veteran, except for “M” (he wasn’t a non-drinker. He’d just never been significantly drunk)

    So, I have a couple beers and a bunch of sake shots, and he’s matching me drink-for-drink. I have no idea why, since neither I, nor our other friends, were prodding him (we’re not that kind of assholes, more interested in having fun than seeing someone wasted).

    By the end of the night, I’d had at least 3-4 large Sapporo’s (the 20-oz bottles) and in the neighborhood of 15 shots of sake. And, there M was, still matching me, to the point where, when I ordered my last beer, I asked him “are you sure?” He was sure. (I should probably mention that M, who had been matching my drinks, underweighed me by about 60 pounds in addition to his lack of experience)

    By the time I finished drinking, I was on the verge of puking. Any old-time drinker knows when you hit that limit, where you _might_ go over the edge, but are fairly confident you won’t. I didn’t. But I had to pee like a racehorse. This was a relatively small restaurant, with only 1 bathroom for each gender, and M disappeared into the men’s room.

    So, after a while, he comes back. Our friend “R” asks “are you ok?” to which M replies “no” and lays his head on the sushi bar.

    At this point, my eyeballs are floating, so I head around the corner to the bathroom, just for my friend “K” to go running past me into the bathroom. (He WAS being an asshole) I wait, doing the pee-pee dance, and he comes out a minute later, grinning, and I call him an asshole. So I go into the bathroom and have one of those pisses that may just be better than sex.

    When i get out of the bathroom, I find “M” sitting on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant, R and K are laughing their asses off, while the poor sushi chef and waitress are busy cleaning up the sushi bar. Apparently, when I was in the bathroom, M let loose all over his end of the sushi bar, into one of those tiny little bowls where you put your soy sauce (which basically just made a tidal wave effect from the vomit)

    Thankfully, it was pretty much closing time, and there were only 4 other people in the restaurant. I felt bad, and bought each group a small bottle of sake (though I don’t know if they wanted to drink after the show)

    So, we’re in front of the restaurant, our sushi chef friend is looking at M, who is still puking on the sidewalk, and says “there’s no blood. he’ll be fine” while giving him some tea mixture. (Our friend is Korean)

    Of course, since the damage is done, we’re out there being asses. R says “while he’s down there, we should fuck him in the ass” to which M replies in a voice which I can only call “drunkpressed”: “Please don’t”

    They leave it to me to call his (M’s) wife. Of course, I’m drunk off my ass. And she sounds pissed. Which makes me laugh even harder (remember, I was pretty well plowed at this point. I was only spared puking by body mass and experience)

    A few minutes later, our friend M2 pulls up. He was supposed to meet us, but got held up, so he figured he’d hang out with us after sushi. Seeing the situation, he takes M home, who is apparently throwing up in a bag the whole way home. The funny thing is, when M2 gets him to the door, M’s wife gets mad at M2 who WASN’T EVEN THERE AT THE SUSHI PLACE. The funnier thing is that M2 forgot about the bag of puke in his car until the next day.

    Anyway, M’s wife banned him from drinking for a year. He had demon eyes for a week after. And I ended up with an awesome story.

    • Phrederic

      I once started drinking at a Sushi place at 5:30.

      We stopped drinking at 2 in the morning.

      I went into my brother’s restaurant were apparently I was LOUD AS FUCK.

      Didn’t vomit though.

    • Bones

      So you never knew what possessed him to try to match you?

      • JimbobJones

        Still no idea.

        They were moving across country for a few years a month or two after this (they’re back in CA now), so maybe he just wanted a big blowout.

        For his going away gift, I got an empty sake box, but put inside it a couple bottles of water (for weight and feel) and an amazon gift card. It was funny as hell seeing his eyes when he unwrapped the box, though.

    • Sake is the goddamn devil. Nobody should imbibe such horror.

      • Bones

        I can count on one hand the times I’ve had Sake, but it never ruined my shit.

        • It’s not the result, it’s the taste. I can handle bottom-shelf wine and gin and Aristocrat, but something about the taste of sake alerts my body to immediately reject that shit.

          • JimbobJones

            You aren’t drinking the right ones. Like wine, there are a LOT of different sakes.

          • This is probably true to at least some degree.

          • JimbobJones

            I honestly didn’t know it until I went to a sushi place that had a “flight” of a half dozen sakes. Before that, I felt like you do — like there’s only “hot” and “cold” sake, and both of them suck.

          • I went to a very good Italian place back in Baltimore once that offered grappa.

            I am very glad I was not driving that night. Me and the others I was with ended up walking back to my cousin’s apartment, which wasn’t far, but the walk required us to pass by a projects in between. Thankfully, nobody felt a need to mess with us, and we all made it back, damn near falling down drunk.

      • JimbobJones

        I love sake, but it’s dangerous. You’ll have a nice buzz, but then out of the blue, you’ll suddenly get very drunk all at once. I call it the “sake wall” (and it’s the reason I was driving drunk that one time)

  • Anyone else get like really aggravated when you’re trying to put out half a cigarette so you can smoke the other half later and there’s one little leaf of tobacco that won’t give way and keeps the cherry hanging on despite damn near jamming the thing into the ashtray?

          Like fuck it, you might as well mix and match, right?

          • P.K.

            Cigs help because coke and tobacco are both stimulants but yeah ive mix and matched a lot…I will tell you from experience tho, that coke doesn’t go well with shrooms and/or acid….

    So now that I am just fluffy to appreciate such things, I am going to watch this greatest match of all the times.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I made it about two minutes in before I got bored and jumped back to Charlie Manson interviews. This one is all about music. He is clearly out of his ken. Just rambling about nothing.

      • HEY NOW! HEY NOW!

      • Bones

        Sounds like Kevin Sullivan.

        Mildly unpopular opinion, he sucks shit.

        • Manson or Sullivan?

          • Bones

            Both

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          I find him amusing. Oh dude…He’s doing his “every time I leave jail and go into the world, the beat of the music keeps changing and getting more frantic” bit. He’s been using this since the Snyder interview. It’s like KISS or old wrestling matches. I am calling Charlie’s spots before he does ’em.

          • I hear he’s been sick recently. I find it ironic he’s managed to hang on this long despite being old as shit and the Great Purge of 2016.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Yeah, Uncle Charlie ain’t gonna make it. It’s for the better. I think after him the original wave of serial killers are all done. Is Son of Sam still around?

          • Indeed, David Berkowitz is still alive, last I checked. Oddly enough, I actually kinda think he might be legitimately contrite for his crimes, and yet, he still refuses to even attempt to visit the parole board.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I don’t see what the harm is attempting parole would be. That dog has to be long dead by now so he shouldn’t worry about that.

          • He’s basically said prison is where he belongs, good, bad, or indifferent. I also felt similarly about Mark David Chapman. He already clipped John Lennon. I think he’s done killing by now.

            Amazingly enough, there is one true old-school New York mafia boss still alive in prison.and one Philly mob boss in the same boat.

  • Yeah, great flick. Good times had by all. I want that Black Panther movie for sure.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I won’t lie. I am very fucking tired of listening to him explain these fucking murders.

    • Well, I’ve not seen a lot of Manson interviews, but I feel like if he’s being interviewed, the murders will come up.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I know but the account is annoying. His explanation is still pretty good (as in entertaining) but the whole “who did what and why” part is dull.

    • Y’ever seen the NBC interview of Dahmer and his father talking to Stone Phillips?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I was gonna watch that one. Found a Bundy one too but they don’t have the same zazz as Manson. Charlie’s scattershot, tangent filled answers to things remind me of….well…me

      If he brains the winner of Hero/Nakamura at the end of NXT Mania, don’t say I didn’t call it.

    Rewatched Tana/Naito and Omega/Okada and bumped the latter’s rating up. Didn’t feel the length at all on rewatch.

      Did you bump it up to six stars though?

    The guy on the right is apparently Haku’s third son. That sound you hear is Vince popping a boner: https://twitter.com/voiceswrestling/status/817337638550142976

    NJPW/CMLL Fantastica Mania cards: http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/791459-njpw-announces-match-cards-for-2017-fantastica-mania-tour-feat-mistico-atlantis-dragon-lee-more-from-cmll

    Some great stuff in there. Ospreay’s on the tour. Dragon Lee & Titan vs. Hiromu Takahashi & Bushi and Volador Jr. vs. Ultimo Guerrero on the final night. No Dragon Lee/Hiromu, which suggests that will be on one of the New Beginning cards after all.

      Do they show the co-promotion shows on NJPW World?

        It’s a five date tour, with the last three dates – the ones listed in the link – all live on World.
