• JimbobJones

    Why are my posts on approval?

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Because you didn’t say boner first.

      • JimbobJones

        I actually did. That’s the post that’s awaiting approval.

    • Marvy J. Blige – #6

      If any use of boner makes a post go to a mod first I am officially the happiest boy in history

  • johntcole

    Hope Danny Burch/Martin Stone does well in the Network UK tourney next week.

    Guy has been killing it on the indies.

    • JimbobJones

      I had hopes until I heard their petty-ass reason for not allowing Sabre to be in

      • johntcole

        ZSJ not being in the tourney far from ruins it.

        • JimbobJones

          It doesn’t ruin it. It’s just a really stupid reason not to let him in.

          • Thebraziliankid

            He doesn’t want to sign a contract, that’s why.

          • JimbobJones

            I know why. Which is reasoning I think is pretty crappy. (And yes, I know they can do what they want, but it doesn’t make it any less shady)

          • jobber123

            I had only heard they low balled him on money. What was the other reason?

          • JimbobJones

            Because he refused to sign with them after the CWC.

            Basically, if you refuse to sign, apparently you’ll never be in another one of their “best of X” types of tournaments (which means the “best of” is a load of crap, since it only means “best of people who weren’t brave enough to refuse us”)

          • jobber123

            That is SO LAME, since he refused to sign because the deal was shit! So take our crappy contract offer immediately or we will blackball you. What a great company.

          • JimbobJones

            That’s what bugs me about it. It’s some mafia-level shit they’re pulling.

  • JimbobJones

    Da Boner

  • jobber123

    So they made a EWR app for mobile devices if anyone is interested. I downloaded it but it’s a bit much to start right now I think.

  • jobber123

    That Ole shoot is something else. Ric Flair was the drizzling shits!

    • jobber123

      Vernes training was totally easy by the way!

      • Thebraziliankid

        Some njpw dojo stories are legit crazy.

        • jobber123

          Vernes old training camps are the closest we probably ever came in the US to that. And it got similar results to be honest.

          • Thebraziliankid

            Some guys like Choshu made the rookies their boy slaves. Nagata is a example of old guy actually being nice to them, he let Goto live in his house for months until he had a place to of his own.

          • jobber123

            Yeah but did they learn where the hard camera was???

          • The Silver Fox

            Steamboat, Flair, Backlund, The Andersons, Paterson, Mulligan, The Iron Sheik, Baron von Raschke. But also Jimmy Valiant.

          • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

            Impossible. Verne’s responsible for the Boogie Woogie Man?!?

          • The Silver Fox

            Sad, but true.

          • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

            Poor Verne must had nightmares about that one.

    • Brian_Bayless

      His Old School shoot on the Highspots Network is even more intense.

      He just rips on everyone

    • Brian_Bayless

      I do a wwe superstar template for everyone for half of the stuff.

  • Listen. LISTEN.

    Do you hear that?

  • chicagodem79

    Well, I’m watching the infamous 6 star match. That missle dropkick to the back of Okada’s head was NASTY.

    • JimbobJones

      Wait until you see his throat at Dash. I’m guessing that dropkick is what did it.

      • jobber123

        Okada really is a total maniac. I never personally give that guy enough love and just take his absolute awesomeness for granted too often.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    Movie You Should See: The Catered Affair. You wouldn’t think a movie where Ernest Borgnine and Bette Davis play husband and wife would be anything but cheesy, but somehow it works. It airs on TCM from time to time.

    Naito/Tanahashi ****1/2
    Okada/Omega *****

    • jobber123

      I wonder if Cody will do anything else there. His ring work is not up to snuff but I do think he is a good enough character worker that he could be a fun bullet club heel.

      • WWF1987

        Cody was weirdly over. I’m thinking he replaces Omega in the BC when they kick him out.

    • jobber123

      Am I crazy for thinking Shibata vs Goto is better than Ishii vs Shibata last year?

      • WWF1987

        Both were great. A lot of Shibata matches just blend together for me.

        I liked the back story more for Goto vs Shibata.

  • Aaron

    I guess I’ll watch Tana – Okada.

    • Ioan Morris

      Was interested to see your ratings. Hell of a show, right?

  • cultstatus

    Apparently the green Chinese kid they signed dropped Tozawa on his head in a match tonight. Hope he is ok.

  • So because I’m terrible with song names I had to look up the title of “Fox on the Run” from the Guardians trailer and it turns out it went number one on iTunes after the trailer dropped.

  • I can’t believe no one else here went ****** for the WK main event.

    You guys don’t know wrestling.

    • Nick Demola

      It was no better than *****3/4 IMO

  • chicagodem79

    Good GOD these dudes are fucking crazy lol.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Once Omega got backdropped through the table, that match kicked into overdrive.

      • WWF1987

        He got awesome hangtime.

        • Brian_Bayless

          On the moonsault over the railing too

          • jobber123

            That was jaw dropping IMO

  • jobber123

    My Wk 11 ratings
    Tiger Mask match 2.5 stars
    Roppongi Vice vs the bucks 3.25 (extra quarter for that finish and selling me on Rocky Romero)

      World Title: 6*

  • jobber123

    So basically everyone is exactly the same minus or plus a quarter star here or there.

  • chicagodem79

    Ya know I wonder, with the buzz of “The Best Match Ever”, I wonder if WWE will book a “workrate” match to try and top it at Wrestlemania?

    • WWF1987

      That’s the rumor.

    • jobber123

      Just give Rollins vs Reigns 45 minutes!

      • WWF1987

        They did at MITB.

        • jobber123

          I forget what happened. Did they hit 6 stars?

          • Brian_Bayless

            Rollins won then Dean cashed in

    • jobber123

      It will be like when they ripped off Matts deletion stuff with that Wyatt compound match.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Good god that was pathetic

        • Nick Demola

          ******************xinfinity

      • RudoWakening

        They actually have guys that are capable of just going out and working their balls off and hitting *******

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Did you just put 7 stars? Lol

          • RudoWakening

            Damn right I did!

          • Kenny_Reigns

            That was an ******** comment!

  • Brian_Bayless

    I doubt any show this year tops WK 11.

    • WWF1987

      WM could if they wanted it to.

      • Brian_Bayless

        HHH vs. Rollins isnt anything I’m looking forward too

        • WWF1987

          Agreed. I’m just saying they have a stellar roster, but the booking is a mess.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      No show will. But the Evolve shows will probably be fun and Final Battle is always great.

  • jobber123

    The problem WWE would have trying to match NJPW for work rate is they only have one AJ Styles, while NJPW has like 3 or 4 depending on where you are at on Naito. And they don’t over agent the matches either.

    • jobber123

      I forgot the jr’s, so they have like 6 or 7 AJ’s actually.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Ricochet alone is better than anyone else in the world. Too bad he’s stuck in the Jrs.

        • Thebraziliankid

          Blame him for being a midget.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            5’10” isn’t exactly a midget.

          • Thebraziliankid

            He’s a Jr, thus inferior to a HW forever. Sadly that’s how Japan workds.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Yeah…it sucks. The guy has all-time charisma and is the best worker in the world.

          • Thebraziliankid

            You spelled AJ Styles wrong.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Ricochet is better than AJ.

        • jobber123

          Rico, KUSHIDA, the Bucks (who NJPW does not feature like this but still they are that good), Kamaitachi are as good as AJ and Okada, Tanahashi, and Omega too. And Probably Naito. Then guys like Ishii and just a cut below and still fucking amazing. Like Ishii would be a top 5 talent in WWE based on ring skills.

          • Thebraziliankid

            2014 Ishii was the in ring MVP that year, he just ran the ball having great matches even with Yujiro.

          • jobber123

            He is awesome, and maybe my personal favorite. But I don’t know if he has the skills of the tippy top guys in the world. But he definitely is better than a Seth Rollins or Kevin Owens by a wide margin.

          • Thebraziliankid

            He’s the perfect upper midcard guy.

  • jobber123

    Could WWE do a show with 4 **** plus matches on it? I went live to one that had 2 5 star matches and it was awesome, but the rest of the show blew and half the guys in those two 5 star matches are done in WWE.

    • Andrew Champagne

      What show did you go to?

      • jobber123

        Summerslam 2013 with Brock vs Punk and Cena vs Bryan

        • Andrew Champagne

          Yep, that’d do it.

          To answer your question, I’d probably bet against four **** matches on a WWE show. Drop it to four ***1/2 matches on a WWE show, and my answer probably changes.

          • jobber123

            Live I thought Cena vs Bryan was the better match, but after rewatching the show several times I like Punk vs Lesnar more.

    • cultstatus

      I think a Takeover had 4 **** star matches.

      • jobber123

        I could see that.

        • cultstatus

          Takeover Dallas definitely did it. AA/Revival, Bayley/Asuka, Nakamura/Zayn, and Joe/Balor.

          • Andrew Champagne

            I didn’t see Bayley/Asuka as being THAT good. I saw it more in the ***1/4-***1/2 range.

    • WWF1987

      Styles/Cena
      Owens/Zayn
      Rollins/Lesnar (book it similar to Punk vs. Lesnar)
      Nakamura/Balor
      Ziggler/Miz

      Hmm. Joe vs. someone.

      • jobber123

        Miz vs Ziggler…it worked once but hasn’t that ship sailed?

      • RudoWakening

        Joe v Cesaro

  • Facts

    • jobber123

      Is that supposed to be a bird? Lol what the fuck

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Oh…..oh, that’s fucking bad.

  • jobber123

    Booking aside, what is the best match workrate wise WWE could offer? Cesaro vs AJ?

    • chicagodem79

      Rollins/AJ?

      • AnInternetToughGuy

        Nope.
        Rollins sucks.

    • RudoWakening

      AJ/Cesaro
      AJ/Sami
      AJ/Joe
      AJ/Nakamura
      AJ/KO

      There is a theme here

    • Andrew Champagne

      If you consider workrate also bringing the crowd into it, doesn’t it have to be AJ/Cena?

      • jobber123

        Very possible.

      • jobber123

        And Cena is like a super version of Sting, where if he is motivated (which unlike Sting so far he always has been) and in shape (he always is) he can do whatever the other guy controlling the match needs. Cena vs a worldclass worker is always great.

  • Dwayne

    I’m repeating this from a few minutes ago because it’s a new thead. I love the move that some women do when they push their cheek out to have you kiss it but they don’t kiss you back, they just make a smooching sound lol.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      That is a great move! It always works for me!

      • Dwayne

        Lol you do it? I might start

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      TBF, I probably don’t want a kiss from the women who do that anyhow.

      • Dwayne

        That’s true too. It’s usually someone you don’t really want to kiss on the cheek

        • JimbobJones

          Normally it’s because they need a shave.

    The Mr.Freeze boss battle in Arkham City is one of the most clever moments I’ve played in my life. I love the atmosphere of the battle.

      • Starscreamlive

        Same here

  • chicagodem79

    Ok I just saw the dragon superplex……like seriously why isn’t that the finish? Personal pet peeve of mine is MDK moves that don’t get pins.

    • jobber123

      I’ve never seen a more MDK move that didn’t involve a dive fall off something stupid crazy. Okada took it on his head. Just insane.

    • jobber123

      Even fucking Benoit never did that.

    We’re getting a full-blown comic event for Captain America: Agent of HYDRA.

    http://comicbook.com/2017/01/06/marvel-secret-empire-2017-event-teaser/

    I still find it amazing that at a time when Cap’s popularity as a character has never been higher, someone thought it was a good idea to turn him into Marvel’s biggest villain. I haven’t seen a more ill-advised heel turn since Steve Austin at Wrestlemania X-7.

    • Eh, it’s like when people complained about Iron Man possibly having trouble selling after Marvel spent so much time turning him into an asshole during the Civil War comics.

    • johntcole

      It’s actually a good story though.

      • Vintage

        It’s a fine story. The timing of it is just strange.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Marvel is totally lost right now. They’re just trying to sell shocking events.

    • The movies aren’t bringing in new readers, though, so Marvel continues to write stories for their audience instead of those mythical fans attracted by what’s in the theaters.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Their ever shrinking audience.

        • johntcole

          Marvel doesn’t have to rely on comic readers now.

      • jobber123

        This sounds somewhat familiar….

        • It’s been happening since Superman: The Movie.

        • johntcole

          Yeah I’d rather WWE not attract a large mainstream crowd again given what the Attitude Era wrought.

          I’m perfectly fine with what’s on now.

      • Dwayne

        Yeah, but to be real, most comic book movie watchers aren’t actually going to start reading comic books. Not if they weren’t already into it.

        • johntcole

          Grant Morrison made a pretty sobering statement awhile ago saying that a child can have Spider-Man blankets, t-shirts, films, posters, and so on but never have read an actual SM comic.

          • Dwayne

            Yup. Many only know the movie or cartoon versions of the character.

          • johntcole

            I sell comics at conventions and a month ago someone was shocked to see an actual Green Arrow book.

          • Dwayne

            Yeah. Many have never heard of him

        • Well, that’s what I mean. The Cap movies don’t mean anything to the comics because the people who love the character in the movies aren’t buying the comics.

  • jobber123

    I’d say Gran Metallik might be the second best worker under full time contract to WWE.

    • Vintage

      Now if only they’d actually put him on their shows.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Are we counting Towaza or no?

      • jobber123

        Yup he’s there to. I was just about to type that my top 4 guys in WWE in ring are probably AJ, GM, Towaza and Cesaro in some order. For 5 its hard, it should be Nakamura but he hasn’t been the same there. Maybe Zayn?

        • jobber123

          Balor!

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Nakamura is in retirement mode. I think working Roode we’re going to see a new level of lazy from him we haven’t seen before.

        • RudoWakening

          Joe

          • jobber123

            I don’t know if I would say Joe is as good as those guys bell to bell but overall as a total package he is the best performer after AJ (or maybe even above) in WWE. Best combo of mic skills, character work and ring work.

  • johntcole

    The Cult of Chucky teaser doesn’t even show footage of the new film

      Now that’s a tease!

      Bone spurs in the neck are definitely possible.

      I had it at about 5.75 stars myself.

      • JimbobJones

        Why the hell did you low-ball it?

        Standard IWC Nerd, bitching about everything!!!

        • Nick Demola

          If Miz was in the match, it’d have hit the full Monty of 8 stars, but only if there are at least 8 MDK kickouts in the match. One star per.

          • JimbobJones

            Sorry, 8 stars cannot exist in this reality.

    • JimbobJones

      I want to rewatch it tonight, when it ISN’T 4 in the morning, and with the understanding that it’s going to be a long match. I think I’ll appreciate it more for what they were going for.

  • Aaron

    I hope the new season of NJPW on AXS features better translations.

    • jobber123

      I don’t know if you caught the last new one they ran but it was from the PPV where Naito defended the belt against Ishii. Naitos interview before the show was so great. And the translation finally did it justice.

      • Aaron

        I watched that match last week. I wasn’t used to Ishii working holds like that. Naito was hilarious as ever saying he had total control the whole time.

  • cultstatus

    Anyone know of any deals going on if you sign up for a year of the network in advance?

  • jobber123

    Naito was so funny. He was perplexed that Ishii could just walk out and challenge for the belt after he won it. “So the guy who just comes out of the locker room first after a match is the next challenger?”

    His money line at the end was “Was this IWGP title I had dreamed of for so long always so accessible? I thought no, so I declined. But they still made the match.”

    • Thebraziliankid

      Naito now is the King of Swag in NJPW.

    Ole on Ric Flair and grilling Feinstein

    • riraho

      He just loves having 0.000 respect for Flair.

  • JimbobJones

    Man, every time I start thinking “they’re doing well with AJ. I wish they’d had him in 2007”, I remember how they likely would have treated him in 2007.

    • Brian_Bayless

      He’d have been putting over Mike Knox on ECW

    • Mikey

      Johnny Ace would have made sure he was buried. Worst talent development in wwe history post class of 02

    • Thebraziliankid

      AJ came to the WWE at the right time, after the indy influx.

  • jobber123

    Ric Flair and Johhny Weaver were the shits in the ring, and the ONLY reason Ric Flair won a world title is because OLE wanted him out of GA. Oh and Dusty Rhodes didn’t know SHIT about wrestling. Nothing at all.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I tried to watch the six star mega match. It..it didn’t go well.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      But it is The greatest wrestling match in the history of professional wrestling.
      I heard Bret Hart watched itand wept tears of envy and enlightenment.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I quit before the opening bell from boredom.

    • JimbobJones

      Three guys in Minnesota watched it, and it cured them of baldness.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I am from Minnesota and I have a glorious mane. I am good.

        • JimbobJones

          It just worked on you in advance.

          Such is the power of the 6-star match

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Oh well, whatever. Last night it lost out to Charlie Manson for this viewer.

          • JimbobJones

            That’s the glory of a 6-star match. You don’t even need to know about it, much less watch it, to improve your life.

  • jobber123

    And the only reason that Ole isn’t still drawing 16k people a week in Atlanta right now is because Vince had some guys stab him in the back 33 years ago. Bayless that trailer was hysterical.

  • jobber123

    It’s crazy how there were never any good wrestlers or matches in the whole history of pro wrestling.

    • JimbobJones

      Holy crap! Are you telling me I’ve been wasting my time?

      • jobber123

        Ole Anderson would definitely tell us that lol.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Told ya.

  • JimbobJones

    Time to roll out of here. Seeing my kids in a play.

  • I accidentally stopped biting my nails on New Year’s Day and now I’m just noticing it. The temptation returns.

    Everyone in wrestling is the shits and cannot draw money according to Ole.

    • The Silver Fox

      Not even Ole and Gene?

    • jobber123

      I like he just takes total credit for the Rock and Roll express.

    • I mean, he’s not wrong per say. Have you seen Hulk Hogan’s artwork? He’s not even in Jerry Lawler’s league.

    • Nick Demola

      The drizzling shits

  • jobber123

    Oles take on the RnRx was interesting to me. He knows that he can’t say they were total shit because that was a major money feud for him, so instead of burying them, or giving them any credit he just says he liked them because they could sell and they did everything he told them no questions asked lol. So basically they were all his idea and he made them and they just sold for Ole.

    • Thebraziliankid

      Ole is always full of himself, Tully was always for me The guy with Arn.

    • Aaron

      Ole and the R&R get along well to this day. I’ve read other interviews where he said they outperformed his expectations by miles.

  • chicagodem79

    Want to spend $45 on nachos? Barclays Center premiered their Macho Nachos this season. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It feeds four people, and they sell about 3-4 per game.

    That sounds absurd, who would spend $45 on some damn nachos? lol

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Idiots.

    • To feed 4 people at an arena? $45 is a fucking steal.

      • chicagodem79

        I wonder do they “really” feed 4 people? That’s gotta be like cafeteria tray size big for that.

          • chicagodem79

            LOL, that thing is a hot mess.

          • Probably doesn’t feed 4, either.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Looks like you could make it at home for $12

          • Now, see, here’s the problem. That is a massive pile of guac on top of the whole thing. There’s no way you’re going to get through that pile without SEVERE nacho chip attrition, so you’re gonna get halfway through the pile and have zero nachos left to scoop up the rest of this beast. I see no conceivable way to get a correct chip/toppings ratio that doesn’t leave you with either leftover bland chips or leftover goop you probably shouldn’t eat with your hands.

          • chicagodem79

            That is some solid analysis Dave, well done lol.

          • You best believe that for $45 dollars, I’mma do my homework first.

          • Nick Demola

            ****** analysis

          • jobber123

            They need to layer it better but that still isn’t the worst deal I’ve seen at ball game if you are there with a family or some buddies.

    • jobber123

      I think that is cool because you could get it for a family or a group of people to snack on during the game.

      • chicagodem79

        For people like in a suite or something, I think it’s a pretty good idea (and they are probably more likely to afford something like this). Just regular folks out in the stadium, more difficult to share with a group of peeps.

        • jobber123

          I’m thinking regular seats. If they had a big cardboard platter to put on 4 people could kind of hover around it in their seats. You might have to do a little passing though. I wonder if they are all hooked up too? Because if they are just the yellow cheese and jalapeno bag that is kind of dumb and you should just get 4 individual nachos. ( That would be probably be in the 30’s)

    • SuckaFreeSince83

      It better come with a side of pussy for that price.

    • Curtis Williams

      It’s New York. 45 bucks is NBD to them.

  • Alec Baldwin posted a photo of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

    Except that the letters are Cyrillic. AWESOME.

    • Thebraziliankid

      This Baldwin gets it.

  • jobber123

    Don’t get me wrong, he is an awesome wrestler. Great promo, rotten fucking heel. Tons of awesome feuds and matches. And he was not a bad booker either.

    • The Silver Fox

      I think I’ve said it before, but Gene & Ole have always been my favorite tag team.

  • Mikey

    With Cena being part time and Orton basically being one also, I would have loved to see a 2017 product if Johnny Ace still ran talent relations.

    • No, you wouldn’t.

      WWE would be a wasteland.

      • Mikey

        It would be perversely hilarious

    • Brian_Bayless

      WWE Smackdown Live Champion Titus O’Neill

      • RudoWakening

        Sounds about right.

      • Mikey

        That’s a good call. Titus would definitely be pushed to the moon. Ryback sure as hell would have been a multiple time world champion also

        • Brian_Bayless

          Bull Dempsey and Mojo would have a Mania match

          • Mikey

            Wasn’t Mojo a big deal in NXT at one point? I didn’t start watching til the Network and I remember hearing his name a lot

          • Brian_Bayless

            He was getting a mild push but took far too long to show improvement and fell behind.

    • jobber123

      Otunga would have a title.

      • Mikey

        Another good call.

  • https://www.instagram.com/p/BO7fk7XlC-5/

      …people who watched him be great is 2007…and 2008, and 2009, and…

      He was in a great TV show in 2013.

  • jobber123

    Corbin would have already been in a semi main event feud with Undertaker by now for sure too Mikey lol.

    • chicagodem79

      I’m one of the few who likes Corbin and the direction his character is taking. He still has some work to do to improve in the ring, but character wise, he’s on fire right now.

      • jobber123

        I think Corbin is fine, but he is just that big ugly stiff that Undertaker always had to feud with for awhile.

    • Mikey

      Oh hell yeah. Would have really gotten over buy kicking out of a last ride one time while losing all the matches

      • jobber123

        Worked great for all the other dudes in the mid 00’s on Smackdown too.

  • jobber123

    Corbin vs Undertaker just so reminds of something Smackdown would do for months on end too.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Johnny Ace’s WM 33

    Corbin vs. Taker
    HHH vs. Strowman
    Titus vs. Konnor
    Gallows & Anderson vs. Rowan & Wyatt
    Mojo vs. Swagger
    Rollins & Ambrose vs. Authors of Pain
    Big Show vs. Kane

    • jobber123

      lmao

    • Needs more Roman Reigns.

      Reigns would be all over this show.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Reigns would beat Samoa Joe

    • Phrederic

      Y’know, some of that doesn’t sound so bad.

  • jobber123

    Was there a good reason that JR got replaced as VP of talent relations? He was incredible. There really is no saying how bad Ace fucked that company up in his time there.

    • Vince being Vince.

    • White Thunder

      Did he even want to keep doing it?

    • Phrederic

      Burnt out, right?

      And JR is a REAL asshole from everything I’ve heard.

      • jobber123

        He was probably the best VP of talent relations as far as hiring the very best talent though.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Hmm…There seems to be no new episode of Continue Quest. That’s some stone cold bullshit.

    • riraho

      Agree….might go under in the Miami game.

    • chicagodem79

      36.5 on that OAK/HOU game LOL….I think that’s probably too high unless there are defensive TDs.

      • Nick Demola

        There will be. Pick Sixes and fumbles for all!

    • Matt Moore leading a South Florida team into single-digit cold Pittsburgh.

      …I think I’m leaning Pittsburgh there.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Yeah, Pittsburgh seems like smart money. Seattle, too.

        • Yeehaw

          Pittsburgh always always ends up losing the games they’re supposed to dominate. I’d take the under.

    • Curtis Williams

      There’s definitely going to be an upset this weekend.

      • I’m hoping it’s Detroit because Lions fans would be so happy just for a little morsel of playoff success.

        • chicagodem79

          I strongly dislike Seattle so I’m hoping Detroit wins…..although they don’t have a good track record in the playoffs so I’m not expecting it….

      Take a deep breath when you step outside

  • cabspaintedyellow

    So I’ve been watching old Raws from 1994 on the Network, and I’m discovering how obnoxious WWE was with branding even then. Every episode, I would be continually frustrated by Vince referring to Tatanka only as “The Native American Tatanka”. So I decided to keep tab in my head over the course of a four-minute squash match.

    SEVENTEEN TIMES. He said “Native American Tatanka” seventeen fuck-mothering times. Technically, seventeen and a half, since he started to say it but got interrupted to call the two-count. It was madness.

    We get it! He’s Native American!

    • WWF1987

      No. He’s The Native American Tatanka.

  • riraho

    I feel like playoff gambling is easier than regular season gambling.

  • maskedcabana

    So Sandow’s new TNA gimmick is pretty much Liberace with Rockstar Spud as his man servent/driver.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      With every TNA segment I see him in, the more I sympathize with WWE for not going with him.

      • Phrederic

        He got fat.

      • Mikey

        Terrible wrestler and a lower card comedy gimmick.

    • Phrederic

      So they decided to end the “serious, shoot badass” gimmick?

      Thank Christ.

      Hammy is the way to use him.

  • Phrederic

    Luke Cage is not as good as Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

    And Daredevil season 2 was not as good as Daredevil season 1.

    Iron Fist MIGHT suck.

    But The Defenders are looking pretty great.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Goddamn you went through those shows nearly as fast as I did.

      Okay, you weren’t nearly as quick going through them as me.

      • Phrederic

        I have to sleep goddamnit.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          When it comes to Daredevil, I don’t. I watched all of Season 2 in one night, immediately after they uploaded. I have issues, why do you ask?

          • Phrederic

            I watched the Punisher arc and I was like…this Elektra shit ain’t worth staying up for.

            Dueces.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            I loved the Elektra arc. Thought she was fantastic.

          • Phrederic

            I never dug the character.

            And the Chaste vs. the Hand and Stick never were as interesting as the grimy crime shit.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            The Hand and ninja stuff has always been my least favorite aspect of the character because I have never really been into kung fu and its mythology. But I thought they worked well enough and were buoyed by Stick and Elektra. The Punisher arc and gritty crime are definitely much more my taste.

          • Phrederic

            I like kung fu shit. But the Hand are such Ninja Turtle level villains that whenever they get brought up I remember that Daredevil was a c-level hero.

            It’s straight corny.

          • Dwayne

            Ninja Turtles took a lot from Daredevil in the first place

          • Phrederic

            That’s not a compliment.

          • Dwayne

            Not to you but I have no issue with either even though I’m not really into TMNT like I was back in the day

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            Daredevil is my favorite comic character so legally and honorally I’m not allowed to besmirch anything about the character.

          • Dwayne

            I think DD is absolutely one of the best superhero characters ever created

          • Phrederic

            Growing up people made all those jokes about Aquaman?

            I made jokes about Daredevil.

            I remember he had a line about being trained by ninjas and samurai and I made a jerkoff motion so hard I think I threw out my wrist.

          • Dwayne

            That’s so cool, dude

          • Phrederic

            Okay, he’s better than Moon Knight.

            Moon Knight is a straight bitch.

          • Dwayne

            Wrong again, but I already know we won’t see eye to eye on this shit

          • Phrederic

            Moon Knight is a bootleg version of Batman and everybody knows it.

            He has fucking Moonarangs.

          • Dwayne

            Lol. He uses them to stab people and carve their faces off. I’m not going get into a comic argument though. I know way too much. More than I want to admit lol

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            He overcame some humble beginnings and became an amazing character. The Bendis and Miller runs are top shelf work.

          • Dwayne

            Honestly, some the early Lee stuff wasn’t that bad either

          • Phrederic

            …his costume might have been the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

          • Dwayne

            The one he had for 5 or 6 issues? Yeah. They changed it for a reason

          • Phrederic

            It kind of burns into your mind.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            The first issue was a classic. It started good but Lee ran out of ideas for the character pretty fast.

          • Dwayne

            The Submariner issue was fun

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            I loved the crazy convoluted plots(even by comic standards) they would have. One issue Foggy went to the Gladiator and had him make a duplicate Daredevil costume so he could impress Karen and ended up being attacked by The Gladiator, knocked out and saved by the real DD.

          • Dwayne

            Lol yeah. The fake twin brother shit is when Lee clearly ran out of ideas. But it was funny in a cheesy way

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            MIKE MURDOCK! I can’t tell if that was so shitty it was amazing or just plain amazing.

          • Phrederic

            Lee ran out of ideas? Perish the thought.

            You ever read the OG Hulk run?

            Or OG Fantastic Four?

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            No, never have. I have trouble reading that era of comics. Daredevil and Batman are the only ones I’ve gone that far back for.

          • Phrederic

            I had the compilations.

            I think by the third edition of Hulk he was fighting Mongolian warlords.

            And 50% of the villains were Communists disguised as aliens.

          • Phrederic

            Daredevil?

            Really?

            That…seems so strange.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            Absolutely. I could not read any comics ever besides Bendis’ DD run and be completely happy. I was a Batman mark my whole life. Once I read the comics DD overtook him.

          • Phrederic

            Huh…

            Weird.

            To me he always seemed like a budget Batman combined with a budget Spider-Man.

            Honestly, it’s a credit to the TV show, cause I actually now like him.

          • Dwayne

            I liked the Hand/Electra stuff in Miller’s original comic run. That’s one of the things that made the character popular in the early 80s

        I’ve seen that picture of Chloe Bennett.

      I enjoyed parts of the first season. The post Winter Soldier run was its strongest. Then it faltered after that and I gave up.

      • Phrederic

        The Inhumans shit?

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          I never even got to that TBH. I bailed pretty early into Season 2.

            It just looks like…an ABC show.

            *truthful.

          • Phrederic

            Their ABC TV work has been the one black mark on the MCU.

            Agent Carter and Agents of SHIELD are both flops in their own way.

      • The Professor

        same

  • Yeehaw

    Corbin and Taker would actually be a good match. Corbin works well with bigger guys. His best matches were with Rhyno and Joe.

    • Phrederic

      Big hosses that he can get good End of Days on or little dudes who are really agile.

      • Yeehaw

        His match with Kalisto at TLC was real good too.

        • Phrederic

          His segments with Chad Gable are really good.

          • Yeehaw

            And that one pre show match with Crews was.. pretty good too.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      I really was impressed by his match with Crews at NXT London.

      • Phrederic

        GO BACK TO RING OF HONOR!

    • It’s even better if you got the Sling TV ad in the middle of it and it looks like Danny Trejo had an inexplicable Raw Women’s title reign.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Sasha is a 3x champ with zero successful title defenses

      • cabspaintedyellow

        I’m not entirely certain it wouldn’t have been better for her to have never won the title at all, and to have had a longer chase.

        • Mikey

          She’s Mick Foley.

    Fucking hell, the new Impact Wrestling logo is atrocious.

    https://twitter.com/MrJacobCohen/status/817519806207455233

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Is that a giant metal X in the middle?

      • cabspaintedyellow

        Looks like some kind of bird.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          Maybe an owl. Which has absolutely nothing to do with impact or wrestling.

          • cabspaintedyellow

            “Watch the stars of Impact Wrestling on Pop!”

            “Who?”

          • PeteF3

            Anthem’s logo is an owl. CROSS-BRANDING BAYBAY.

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            Wouldn’t you usually find a discreet way of including it? Like maybe a tiny logo at the bottom that says An Anthem Brand or something?

          • PeteF3

            How about a big “ANTHEM” at the bottom of the logo as well as the owl? Come to think of it, I’m not sure what owls have to do with fighting, television networks, or anthems either.

        • jobber123

          So will they have a new bird mascot to try and brand to kids?

      • jobber123

        I thought it was a bird.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          At first glance it looked like a giant metal X with a face.

          • jobber123

            Honestly it would make way more sense to be a giant metal X than a bird, so maybe that actually is one but damn if that doesn’t look a bird to me.

          • Phrederic

            It’s a fucking bird.

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            I’m pretty sure it’s a bird. It’s placement in the logo is so baffling I figured I must not be seeing it correctly.

          • jobber123

            WHY IS THERE A BIRD IN THE MIDDLE OF TNAS LOGO????

        • Phrederic

    Interesting statistic from reddit:

    Roman Reigns has had 18 matches on RAW since the brand split… 14 have been between Kevin Owens and Jericho.

    • jobber123

      Are those two dudes seriously not big enough stars, and do they not have enough talent on the roster to keep them separate outside PPV main events? Would raws ratings have adjusted one viewer if you swapped those TV matches around with other people?

    • The Professor

      did he go like 13-1 in those matches?

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Mecca does not seem to be talking about their new bird logo.

  • jobber123

    So is the TNA name dead dead? Oh and is there a PPV on now?

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      There might be. Mecca seems preoccupied.

  • Mikey

    The Nets play hard but man is that team fucking garbage.

    • Dwayne

      They literally have no one. Brook Lopez is actually fine but your next best player is Jeremy fucking Lin and then…

      • Mikey

        Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who probably wouldn’t crack the rotation on a good team.

        • Dwayne

          They actually should trade Lopez for picks or something

          • Mikey

            Probably the best bet. The Pierce and Garnett trade absolutely destroyed their future. By the time they get even close to being good, Lopez is going to be retired.

          • AnInternetToughGuy

            Dude almost always miss a huge chunk of the season anyway due to injury I don’t think any team will be willing to give up a lot for him

    The TNA ppv isn;t on any streaming site I use and I can’t be bothered to see if it;s on my TV because obvi I ain’t buying it.

      • Mikey

        I think guys will wanna play for Kidd

        • Dwayne

          That’s what can help. Kidd is a player’s coach

    • P.K.

      Who starts at PG for them? Delly?

      • WWF1987

        Antetokounmpo, Brogdon, Snell, Delly, it’s all over the place.

        Guessing by what she looks like, I could see why she’s still with him. Her friend on the other hand is real cute but she has a boyfriend too and he’s been known to pull a gun on fuckers. So ill just hit on her.

    • chicagodem79

      Ummmm…I guess it’s better than slashing her?

    • cabspaintedyellow

      There’s so much to unpack in that statement. Is her boyfriend also her brother, as in “my boyfriend/brother”, did her brother team up with her boyfriend to destroy her car? Are the brother and boyfriend fucking? If so, how are slashed tires the only problem that comes up?

      • Yeehaw

        Perfectly acceptable questions. Eh, I’d still bang her with enough alcohol.

    In a all time hysterical moment in WCW history after the crazy hardcore brawl between the Nastys and Foley and Sullivan they immediately cut to Mean Gene about to interview Lou Thesz and Verne Gagne! The look on their faces was priceless. This is at Slamboree 1994.

    They both have to comment on the match, Gagne just puts over Bockwinkle saying that he wrestled like that and now he is letting his wrestlers get too violent and he needs to reign it in before it gets out of control!

    And Thesz just goes “Well in my day we used wrestling holds but now they use sharp objects….but I guess that’s the way it is now.”

    • Dwayne

      That show was one of my favorites from WCW. It kinda has an ECW feel but it was in Philly

      • jobber123

        I started watching it last night because it is one of my all time favorite wrestling crowds. They were great, and the show was wild. The best Slamboree WCW did for sure, because the legend matches were great. Larry Z coming back and shutting up Regal was awesome and Funk vs Tully was just a crazy ECW match. You get Flair vs Windham, Sting vs Vader and Austin vs Mero too. And the crowd is an A plus

        • Dwayne

          Without a doubt. I bought that and Spring Stampede on tape back in the day and I watched both shows many times

    Was Vader was supposed to beat Rude here?

        • Dwayne

          Oh yeah. I remember that story too. He had the belt in the trunk and a gun next to it or something

          • Dwayne

            The best thing he did was imitate Miz

            True

          • Mikey

            That was funny but led to nothing and they blew it off on the pre show ARMBAR. And they weren’t even wrong to blow it off there

          • Dwayne

            Not really much more you could do with that. It’s not like he could actually beat Miz and become him lol

          • Mikey

            Exactly lol

    • Brian_Bayless

      Since no one will watch, I dont think anyone will get spoiled

      • P.K.

        lol..True…I only watch the Hardy TNA stuff on YT

      • Dwayne

        You’ll watch almost anything and I don’t think even you bother with that company lol

  • cabspaintedyellow

    If rumors of Kyle O’Reilly going to NXT are true, and WWE offers a shit-zillion dollars to get Kenny Omega, and then top it off by somehow getting Kazuchika Okada on the roster, they could team them with Kevin Owens and Kassius Ohno to form an entire stable of internet darlings with KO initials.

    • Vintage

      They’ll have 10 world class workers on the roster and STILL push Strowman over all of them.

      • cabspaintedyellow

        Fitting that his initials are B.S.

        • Yeehaw

          Ah cmon. Strowman is alright. They’re doing a job with him, and this is coming from the guy that sat through Strowman/Zayn at road block live.

          • cabspaintedyellow

            He’s fine, and the rare talent they’re booking well. But he’s not anywhere near ready, from an in-ring perspective, for the level of push he’s getting.

          • Yeehaw

            He may not be ready but I think this is clearly all you’re going to get with him. The fact that he has been booked well makes me want him to be pushed. KO, Rollins, etc are superior wrestlers and I couldn’t care less watching them in the ring because of how they’ve been booked.

    • P.K.

      Then have Reigns or Stroman destroy them all

    The best/easiest jump shot animation in NBA 2k17 (IMO) is Rudy Gay’s jump shot…Been using that shit since 2k15 and I’m shooting 50% in My Park this year using that shot…

    • Dwayne

      I use the Kings sometimes for that reason

      • P.K.

        Rudy is pretty damn good but he gets no media attention (besides trade rumors)because of who he plays with…His 2k jump shot is crisp as fuck tho..

        • Dwayne

          Yeah. He was good on Memphis too but was hurt for a while.

          • P.K.

            Got traded to Toronto, then Sacramento, and he’s been stuck there since…He’s a FA this Summer and I think he could be a great addition to a contending team…I bet his time in Sacramento will make him appreciate being apart of a good organization..

          • Curtis Williams

            Rudy is fucking crap and overrated

          • P.K.

            He ain’t a top 10-20 player but he’s solid…Best crunch time shooter(late 4th quarter/game winning shots) in the NBA last year, behind Steph Curry…Dudes grown up a lot and he is a pretty good small ball PF…

          • Dwayne

    Watching the 2009 Royal Rumble. Forgot how great the first few minutes are, with Rey, JoMo, and Carlito all going nuts to get the crowd fired up.

    • Mikey

      That was a hot start but the booking for that match was known for weeks so it was kinda boring. And I loved psycho Orton

  • jobber123

    Is it really fair to have Sting in the HoF before Ultimo Guerrero?

    • P.K.

      Octagon, La Parka, and Cibernetico are all future Hall of Famers…

    • Mikey

      Probably not…Sting is just a weird choice and I can see the reasoning on both sides.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Rey, JoMo, Carlito, and even MVP all bringing the energy…and then out walks Khali. Crap.

    • P.K.

      Khali is another guy who could headline a HOF class

    I can only laugh at the horns they blow. If I was a wrestler you did this every night I would want to kill people lol

  • Andrew Champagne

    Khali, and then Kozlov. BOY, this went from awesome to awful REALLY fast.

    • Mikey

      Crazy that Kozlov almost came in between the Lightning in a Bottle that they had with Jeff so that he could feud with HHH. Thankfully that got nixed

      • I still remember the Cyber Sunday that year where the voting for Triple H’s opponent was:

        A) Kozlov
        B) Kovloz and Jeff Hardy
        C) Jeff Hardy

        C wins practically in a landslide and they still went with Kozlov the next month at Survivor Series.

  • jobber123

    Valiente just did a golden triangle type moonsault, it was crazy. And then they cut to 2 white people in the crowd calmly having a nice time.

  • I can’t see John Cena winning the title at the Rumble. But then again, Cena has lost to AJ in every PPV match they’ve had outside of the six man tag.

          • We’re far enough south to where we got no snow today, but BOY HOWDY IT RAINED A LOT. And it’s 25 degrees outside.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Oh, that is the shit you DEFINITELY don’t want to drive in. And you guys don’t even have salt trucks.

            At that temperature your beer will be fine.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I should have bought beer but I spent a hundo on pot so… yeah.

      • I think you made the right call for you.

      • P.K.

        I spent 80 on weed yesterday, got 20 Xanax for 60 today, bought 100 of coke, and an 18 pack of beer

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Yeah. The weed is good enough.

          • P.K.

            lol..Yup, weed is my first love..I only take a half a pill to sleep so they should last me a month or two..The coke and beer are for tomorrow…Just trying to enjoy my time off before school starts up again in 10 days…Gonna go hard to finish up my computer science and accounting degrees once school starts…

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’ll take the 18 pack too. The rest is for the birds.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Oh yeah. Beer would be good too.

      If I did that I’d smack my head on one of my end tables.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I usually spring to action out of bed pretty well. If somebody opens my door when I am asleep I pop up like The Undertaker with my fists drawn. Kinda pointless because I don’t have my glasses on or anything. Just swinging at nothing.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          I don’t sleep well, but when I get to sleep I’m out cold.

  • And A Diddly New Year

    Watching the first Nitro of 1998 and John Nord is in a match (against Barbarian). What even.

    • And A Diddly New Year

      And John Nord WINS?!?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Does Nord deliver his resolutions for the new year like he did in the AWA?

      Resolution one: Read the Bible.
      Resolution two: Read the Bible.
      Resolution three: Stay away from bad people.

      • And A Diddly New Year

        Nope, but he wears a shirt that says “IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME (see back)” and then the back says “THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU”

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Wow. It’s like that one Weezer shirt that says “If it’s too loud….Turn it down”. I still want that shirt.

          • rxchrisg

        Those are awful resolutions.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Well, he had just quit being a barbarian by help of missionaries.

    • cultstatus

      The funniest part is Tenay hyping it as some big signing too.

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    Vince Carter should wrestle Kane at WM. Their careers started at the same time. Like, within a few days of each other.

  • Okay, I never stick up for Kevin Durant ever, but Dark Nowitzki got fucked over on that goaltend call. That was a hellacious block.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I have nothing against him, but Westbrook put up 49 last night and still lost.

      • KD is my irrational hate guy. For some reason, he strikes me as a complete and utter pussy that even Drake would call soft.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Joakim Noah is mine. But that shit with Westbrook reminded me of Drew Brees, where he’s kicking ass every week and they still go 5-11 every year because calling their D a dumpster fire is insulting to dumpsters. And fires. Both of those are at least useful.

          • The Saints and their fans owe Breesus a HUGE debt of gratitude for continuing to agree to have to put up insane numbers every year just to get to .500.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            In a way, they kinda should want him out of town. I’d be happy if the Bills and Browns switched records this year because then the Bills would have the #1 pick and I think 1-15 would have been enough to get Whaley and Brandon shitcanned. In the NFL, being mediocre is worse than being terrible.

          • In a vacuum, maybe, but I imagine there’s also a underlying sense of “nobody wants to be the guy who runs Drew Brees, who chose to stay here post-Katrina and did a lot of the city of New Orleans, out of town”.

          • wnyxmcneal

            He signed post-Katrina.

          • Even worse, nobody wants to be the guy who runs off the guy who chose to GO there post-Katrina.

          • wnyxmcneal

            He was all set to go to Miami, but Saban was a dick to him while Loomis and Payton said: shitty shoulder? Come on down!

          • If you want to have some fun at Alabama fans’ expense, remind them of Saban picking Daunte Culpepper ahead of Brees when they tell you how great an evaluator of talent Saban is.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            That’s even better. I’d be like “fuck that, half your city is underwater.

            And IIRC he was traded there pre-Katrina. So he did re-sign afterwards.

          • wnyxmcneal

            No, he wasn’t. He got injured in Week 17 and his shoulder was fucked.

            New Orleans wanted him, but he wanted to go to Miami. Saban was skeptical about his shoulder, so Brees decided to go to New Orleans and give it a chance.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            He was definitely traded to NO for a 2nd round pick. That I’m sure of.

          • wnyxmcneal

            He was drafted in the 2nd rd. Not traded. He was a FA, signed a 6 year, 60 mil deal.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            No shit… Well, facts are facts, I can admit when I’m wrong.

          • wnyxmcneal

            No worries. Fun fact: I was against both Payton and Brees.

            I was wrong.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I thought they drafted Rivers and traded Brees to the highest bidder because of his shoulder and because he’s so short.

            I never said Peyton was going to be a great QB, but I KNEW Leaf was gonna suck. And boy, did he ever.

          • I knew JaMarcus wasn’t gonna be a good NFL QB.

            I didn’t think he’d be the gold standard of suck, but I figured he wouldn’t be good.

          • wnyxmcneal

            After the season, the Chargers offered Brees a 5-year, $50 million contract that paid $2 million in base salary the first year and the rest heavily based on performance incentives. Brees evaluated the incentive-based offer as a sign of no confidence by the Chargers and promptly demanded the salary a top 5 “franchise” quarterback would receive.[citation needed]

            New Orleans Saints (2006–present)[edit]
            After the Chargers refused to increase their offer, Brees met with other teams. The New Orleans Saints and the Miami Dolphins were interested. New Orleans made an offer that included $10 million in guaranteed money the first year and a $12 million option the second year. Miami was unsure if Brees’s shoulder was completely healed and doctors suggested the team not sign him because of the injury.[55] The Dolphins ended negotiations and traded for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper instead. Brees signed a 6-year, $60 million deal with the Saints on March 14, 2006.[56]

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Oh, I can agree with that. The guy has shown loyalty to the team and you as a fan, so the fans and the team should show it back, that just falls under not being an asshole. But business is business. If I run him out of town and we win a Super Bowl thanks to all the draft picks I got by sucking ass I think everyone will forgive me.

            Sometimes you just gotta tank. Or as sportswriters call it, “enter a rebuilding phase”.

          • wnyxmcneal

            It’s kinda hard to tank in football. You have a guy like Brees, run him until he’s done and then you cut him. He’s still good!

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            It’s more of a thing in the NBA, probably because it works as long as you draft the right guys. There’s 5 positions in the NBA and what… 12 in the NFL depending on what you consider separate positions. The flip side is though, in the NFL you can grab a guy you are pretty sure will be good in the 3rd or 4th round. The NBA doesn’t have a 3rd or 4th round.

          • wnyxmcneal

            NHL is also easier to tank, you have to be smart about your later rounds.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            No, you have to get lucky with your later rounds. Something like 80% of all players drafted in the 4th or later never even see playing time in an NHL game. And the MLB draft is just a waste of time.

          • I’m gonna hate it in like five years when 44-year-old Tom Brady is still starting in New England and we’re having the “it might be time to convince Tom to hang it up” phase.

          • wnyxmcneal

            Trade him to Minnesota or the Jets

          • As First World Problems as it sounds, I’d prefer to have Brady just retire as a Patriot even if it means we get some shitty play at the very end. Very, VERY few guys at that level play for one team for an entire career.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            It’s Belechick. If Brady can’t hack it anymore and someone is dumb enough to offer way above what he’s worth, he’s gone.

            But I’m convinced that if they win another Super Bowl (and I would not bet against that happening) they both retire. They will be the first QB and HC ever to have 5, what’s left to prove?

          • wnyxmcneal

            They don’t want him because QBs don’t grow on trees. If you have a good QB, you keep him until he can’t play anymore.

            Sean Payton on the other hand….

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Don’t want who?

          • wnyxmcneal

            I mean they don’t want to run him out of town.

            Sean Payton- I’m getting sick of his shit.

          • wnyxmcneal

            The Saints D was much improved this year. They only lost two games by more than one possession- a lot of bad luck

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            The last couple seasons before that they were the worst D. Not at the time, I mean in NFL history.

          • wnyxmcneal

            Yea, the D was ass in 2012, 2014 and 2015. But it was improved this year. They kept the Saints in games- we had three weird losses.

  • Matt_Indeed.

    Just watched Okada/Omega. I can understand the hype. That match was silly tits.

  • rxchrisg

    How long was wrestle kingdom? I’m watching it tomorrow

    • Buffalo Hopscotch

      Over 5 hours I think.

      • rxchrisg

        Wait really? We’re going to have to start earlier than planned

        • Buffalo Hopscotch

          You can probably skip the start stuff with the rumble and the Tiger Mask matches to save time. Not missing much there. It took me 3 viewings to get through it all.

          • rxchrisg

            I don’t know,I’m only a couple eps into the Tiger Mask anime but I’m liking it.

  • Buffalo Hopscotch

    GF wants to go to Mexico, which I’m reluctant to do, but the pamphlet says you can go see lucha libre, which has made me slightly more interested.

    • Andrew Champagne

      Good luck getting the average girlfriend to go to wrestling with you on vacation.

      • Buffalo Hopscotch

        She’d go if we were on vacation. I went along to all her boring ass museums last time, so we have a bit of a give and take on doing things.

      • My wife would go to wrestling. Especially if I took her someplace that she suggested.

        • P.K.

          Mine hates watching it on TV but enjoys live events…Although we both agree that the live events we went to between 2003-2009 were way better than any of the more recent live events…

            I figured you would have hated 2007 because Big Show was gone

          • P.K.

            I did…lol…House shows back then were stacked with big stars that my girl liked too..I remember seeing Benoit (Champ) wrestle Triple H in a 30 minute match back in 04 and Benoit went over…We had great seats and we were some the last ones there cheering Benoit on after the match and he gave us a wave…We bought his shirts and everything…

          • Mine has been to a few WWE and TNA events. She used to watch on TV but won’t anymore. She’d probably go to a main roster show, but she shut me down on NXT.

          • P.K.

            Mine hates NXT too…She’s smart

    Well, if AXS is going to show Tanahashi/Okada from Wrestling’s 10 Kingdoms, I’m going to have to watch it.

  • So…….I leave work go home to change and go to the gym…. flat tire on way to gym. call for company I lease from to send a tow truck… I get a text 90 minutes till they arrive.. I go work out 90 minutes comes and goes and no truck. I call the actual tow company and they are like..yeah we have no record of this.. they finally send a tow truck..i keep kinda working out and waiting and then I see some flashing lights so I go outside…my car is gone!
    they took it without letting me know I was there or getting my key!

    • …um…so, they stole your car? Because that sounds like stealing a car to me.

      • I pray it’s at the dealership in the morning

        • March in that bitch tomorrow morning and inform them if they don’t have your car ready for you lickety-split, you will shoot an anti-commercial for them where you tell everyone how much they suck.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        I mean, both guys HAULED ASS and took insane bumps and told a neat story, but I can’t put it up there with stuff like Wargames or HBK/UT I or even some of the older Japan stuff I’ve seen.

    • Jackson Smith

    • I don’t know about that… I have a hard time seeing someone not enjoy it. Its a very good match. Seltzer just put it on a level that’s hard not to be over hyped

    • Aaron

        I like Clean My Wounds.

        But the rest of their shit sounds like a bad Alice In Chains cover.

        • RudoWakening

          COC was around WAY before Alice In Chains.

          • Phrederic

            Perhaps, but their sound got straight up jacked by a better band.

            And…they didn’t really have a response.

          • RudoWakening

            ‘Deliverance’ was a GREAT album, and ‘Wiseblood’ got them a Grammy. Then Pepper wanted them to go the “Southern rock” route for a couple albums that were meh.

          • Phrederic

            Their stoner stuff is a lot better than their thrash stuff (listening to their early shit and it is shit).

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Well yeah, it was prolly recorded in a basement in exchange for beer. Most music from the time is like that.

          • Phrederic

            You think they got beer?

            Man, they were rich.

          • RudoWakening

            That’s because Pepper Keenan wasn’t with them yet. He rounded out their sound

          • Phrederic

            He seems like a pretty talented dude.

            Enough to elevate c-level talent into a b-level band.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      They’re neither. Just OK. A fine opening act for bands that are good, basically.

      • Phrederic

        Hrm. That take seems reasonable.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          I’ll admit, I’ve only seen them live, never heard one of their albums. They aren’t good enough where I’d pay to see them, but decent enough that I’d show up early enough to catch them, like I wouldn’t blow them off and show up late.

          • Phrederic

            I almost always try to see openers.

            Like, you pay for the whole act, might as well catch as much music as possible.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            If it’s someone I don’t know I’ll watch them. If it’s someone I know sucks I’m not. I went to one show where Puddle of Mudd was the opener and showed and hour late. I’m not wasting my time with that shit.

          • Phrederic

            …what show did YOU go to that Puddle of Mudd opened for?

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I don’t ever remember. It wasn’t NIN/APC, that was at The Arena and this was outside. Maybe Papa Roach and someone? I remember the show not being really very good and wishing I’d stayed home, but everyone was saying “But we’re all going!” and I said “fine, fuck it, but I’m not watching Puddle of Mudd.”

            Come to think of it, POD was one of them. They’re pretty good live. Papa Roach was as always terrible, which is why I didn’t want to go.

          • Phrederic

            Wow, that…does not seem like a show you’d want to go to.

            It sounds like garbage. Sorry man.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I actually really like Papa Roach, but they are TERRIBLE in concert. I don’t mind POD. Trying to remember who else played that show.

          • Phrederic

            That just seems like the crowd would be full of douchebags.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Oh, it was. Though most concerts are. Like APC/NIN

            “Maynard is a musical genius, the greatest singer ever, all these other bands are shit.”
            “Yeah, Tool is my favorite band. Now piss off, what is this, a fucking wrestling show?”

      • Jonathan Meisner

        That was like years ago when friends and I went to Montreal to see Ministry, Slayer, Pantera, Morbid Angel and…Corrosion of Conformity on the same bill.

    • Phrederic

      Have you heard Tom Morello’s early hair metal output?

      Their album was called Something Bitching This Way Comes.

      • RudoWakening

        Oh man, I haven’t thought about that in forever

        • Phrederic

          It’s terrible.

          Hilariously so.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Wow! Good find!

        • Phrederic

    • Aaron

      Everyone thank Hüsker Dü, Helmet and Frank Black for killing that genre.

      • RudoWakening

        Hair metal was still YUUUUUGE when the Hüskers broke up. But I credit you for ignoring Nirvana and that makes me happy

        • Aaron

          They were more influencers than outright killers, true.

          • RudoWakening

            Soundgarden’s weirdness helped influence a bunch as well

  • I went to get my beer out of the car and had a mini-panic when I tried to open the passenger door, couldn’t, unlocked it, tried to open it again, and realized it was frozen shut.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Did you get it open?

      • Had to open the rear passenger door and then climb in and reach over the front seat for it, but yes. Beer obtained.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          I good trick I leaned is to get a pitcher of lukewarm (not steaming hot, that will probably shatter the window) water and pour it around the seams of the door. That has never not worked for me. Bring a rag with you to with wipe down any excess water or it will freeze right back up.

          • There’s a big puddle between my deck and my car, so I had the foresight to grab a rock off the porch and toss it at the puddle to see whether it was water or ice. It was still water, so I wasn’t expecting the door to be stuck.

        Hahaha. Just as something to put in the collection so people can go “Hey, you got that?” just like when I bought the Paris Hilton DVD. It’s owning a piece of history.

  • Mikey

    Okada-Omega from a few days ago is nowhere near as great of a match as Taker-Shawn 25 or Austin-Bret 13

    • I triple dog dare you to post that on Reddit.

      • Mikey

        No thanks.

      • Phrederic

        Do it or no balls.

    • Aaron

      Better than Taker – Shawn, equal to Bret – Austin WM13, not quite Bret – Austin SS96.

      • Mikey

        I don’t agree. Shawn is just so much better than Omega or Okada.

        • Aaron

          I’m in the minority, but Shawn didn’t hit for me.

          • Mikey

            Shawn from 05-10 is the greatest thing I’ve seen.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Maybe because I’m older (or maybe not, I have no idea how old you are) but I liked 90s HBK a lot more that 2000s HBK.

          • Mikey

            I’m 29. I got into wrestling in 97 when I was 10. I love Shawn in 96 but it’s from when I rented all the 96 tapes at Blockbuster in 99 or so. I fell in love with the New Gen era though

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            See, I started in 95 and jumped to WCW with the nWo thing and hated the AE, mostly because of Russo. But yeah, I borrowed all of 94 and most of 93 from my buddy who taped every PPVs. So I feel ya.

            I think that HBK 2000 was a better worker overall (helped that he wasn’t fucking wasted 24/7) but I just liked the guys he was feuding with in the 90s a lot better. Total nostalgia for sure and he had some classics in the 2000s, but that’s when I just started to get away from wrestling.

          • Ray Rosini Jr.

            Dynamite Kid from 79-86 is even better than that.

          • Mikey

            Haven’t seen anything before 82

          • Ray Rosini Jr.

            On YouTube watch Dynamite Kid vs Tiger Mask…. blue print for junior heavyweights.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Better than Taker/Shawn, IMO

      • Mikey

        I don’t think so. Shawn in that match was just so much better than those two guys.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Omega put on an all-time individual performance in that match.

          • Mikey

            He was great but I think HBK was the most perfect that you can be in a match. I just don’t think he was as good.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      That’s not even the best Shawn-Taker match.

      Having not seen the NJPW match I can’t offer an opinion on that though.

      • Mikey

        I prefer 25 to Bad Blood 97

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Oddly, I think most people prefer 26 to 25.

          HITC is one of the 3 matches I will give ***** to though.

          • Jonathan Meisner

            Bad Blood, 25 and 26 is my order. Then Ground Zero and Rumble 98.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I… just don’t like 25 or 26. They are not bad matches at all, very good matches, but the commentary and presentation kills them.

            Rumble 98 kind of has to get a pass, Shawn broke his back about 5 minutes in.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      The Taker/Shawn trilogy are my three favorite matches ever so I would be inclined to agree. Cannot fully claim this until I see Okada/Omega.

  • Phrederic

    Worst show you’ve ever been to?

    Mine has to be either the Sevendust (I went for Lacuna Coil but Coal Chamber was kind of fun) or the AWOLnation show (I went for Meg Meyers).

    Sevendust was really, really boring. But AWOLnation was actually disgusting to listen to.

    Lacuna Coil put on a great show and got a ton of respect from the crowd. But the shitty crowd before AWOL shat all over Meg Meyers and were like “WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU?” to an opener.

    Irontom was another fun opener. So…two good openers to a terrible main-event. Or one good opener. One okay opener. And a boring main-event.

    • Brian_Bayless

      I saw Pantera and Coal Chamber opened and they were the fucking worst.

      • Phrederic

        I’m surprised I enjoyed them.

        They’re a really bad band. But I think I retroactively graded them higher cause Sevendust was just so goddamn boring.

        I literally think I started reading a book during their boring, boring show.

      • rxchrisg

        I saw Coal Chamber open for Megadeth and I liked them

    • Headstones. It was in a pool hall and there were basically no women.

    • Aaron

      Hard to say. A lot of the time I go to shows to see opening acts and stupidly stick around for the main act. I’ve watched a few crappy hippie jam bands.

      • Phrederic

        Phish?

        Or worse?

        • Aaron

          So much worse. Phish are at least talented musicians.

          • Phrederic

            Oh…

            That sounds awful.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      P.O.D. Not because of the show though. I don’t remember the show. I was bleeding from the head. I had split my head open moments before the show in some stunt gone sideways. After I had retrieved my druthers and the blood had stopped or coagulated enough, we got in and a time was had. I don’t remember much. Hed PE was there, I think. After the show I went home, then to the urgent care for stitches, then Taco Bell, then home again.

    • Curtis Williams

      Kanye

      • Phrederic

        He just didn’t perform?

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      When I saw Sevendust I passed a blunt to the lead singer. True story.

      Worst show I ever went to was Vanilla Ice when he was trying to be in a hardcore band, but I expected that to be bad, that was the point. Show I had the least fun at? The one I talked about below.

    Watching Happy Days. Mrs. C could get it.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      WHOA!

  • RudoWakening

    I have never seen The Melvins live and that is disappointing

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    The Kwang gimmick was supposed to be Taz with the mask but he turned it down and we got craptacular Savio Vega in that role!!!!

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      Sounds legit.

    • Aaron

      Are we sure Vince didn’t see Ninja Turtles and try to hire Taz as Krang?

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        Was Tax IRS’s little brother?

        • Jonathan Meisner

          If so I hope his finisher was Chapter 11.

      • rxchrisg

        Taz is too small. Big Show would have to play the robot body.

  • Mikey

    Best WWE PPV I’ve been to is WM 30.

    Worst is probably 32. I wanted to say TLC 2014 but at least that was two and a half hours. Mania 32 was far longer and honestly Ziggler-Harper was better than anything on the 32 card

    • Brian_Bayless

      Watching at home, WM 32 slowly killed my enjoyment of the show and once the Rock fucked around with a blow torch I was done.

      • Mikey

        It was terrible man. I wanted to boo Reigns but I was just so worn down.

        At 30 my brother and I pre gamed and drank through the show and hand a good time and we’re all nice and drunk at the end of the show. At 32 I pre gamed with P2B and I had to stop boozing because I’d either black out or pass out because of the length of the show.

        • Brian_Bayless

          No lie, I’d legit have left 15 minutes into the main event as it stunk and everyone knew the outcome.

          • Mikey

            Chris and I were tempted

      • Ray Rosini Jr.

        Bayless, I fell asleep during the main event, to much filler, seemed to never end,like a nightmare.

      • Biff ♥ You

        It’s amazing how bad Creative can skew peoples’ opinions on the quality of that show. The worst match quality wise on the whole card was only around *1/2 (main event), but it was so long and backwards booking-wise that people hated it.

        • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

          It’s 18 hours long and they threw the crowd very few bones.

        • Aaron

          When the booking was designed to bum out and bore the crowd into submission, there’s a problem.

    • Aaron

      32 was abysmal. The fun part was laughing at Reigns being diarrheaed on.

      • Mikey

        it was atrocious

        • Aaron

          I’m surprised you didn’t get hearing damage from the fireworks. They didn’t cover up the booing.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    *Takes a hit and then floats off as Bob Dylan’s “The Man In Me” starts to play.*

    • Jonathan Meisner

      He’s a good man and thorough.

  • Best concert I ever went to (though VERY small sample size): Hot Hot Heat. I am reasonably sure I was the only heterosexual male at that show of their own volition. Every other guy was either gay or got dragged there by their lady. On the whole, Hot Hot Heat is much more fun than the other HHH.

    • Jonathan Meisner

      Tying into Money On The Table’s Big Lebowski reference below, Kenny Rogers a few years back was rad. He performed Just Dropped In as well.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Worst match you’ve ever seen live?

    Saw Tito Santana vs. Warlord at an Independent show in 93 and it was an embarrassment.

    • Mikey

      Big Show Erick Rowan at TLCStairs.

      Big Show tried to let Rowan get some work in but he’s just too awful.

      • Brian_Bayless

        LOL, that match was pathetic

        • Mikey

          I think I’ve told you this before but my friend I went with is a wwe mark no matter what and he started falling asleep

    • Curtis Williams

      Either Melina vs Michelle McCool or Dolph Ziggler vs Khali. Ironically both happened at the same event.

    • Aaron

      Of the big shows, Gorgeous George vs. Little Naitch.

      Of all time, last year I went to an indy show and a guy called the Landlord was in a hardcore match. He’s the only one I remember because of his awesome “rent’s due!” catchphrase. On the way out some fat dump who was in the match asked if I knew he was the good guy. I laughed at him.

      • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

        He’s the landlord! How could he be the good guy, unless he’s facing Roman Reigns

        • Aaron

          “Rent’s due! B’lee dat!”

          #megaface

          • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

            Landlord Reigns comes to get your rent and then passes out on the couch. You have to wait 20 minutes while he naps before he takes the check

    • Ray Rosini Jr.

      B Brian Blair vs Tommy Dreamer summer of 91 both were phoning it in.Good ole IWCCW for ya!!!!!

    • I went to many late-80s and early-90s WWF house shows. There were many, many, MANY clunkers.

    • Jonathan Meisner

      Probably cause it didn’t have Piper’s thinly veiled racist commentary from Summerslam ’90 over the top of it.

      • Aaron

        Yeah, he sure hated guys from Minnesota.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          It’s a weird thing. Minnesotans dont much care for the Scottish.

    • Goldberg and Sid vs Brian Adams and Bryan Clarke.

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    My favorite PPV ever: WM III. 3rd grade class was hyped for it, saw it on closed circuit tv,the fans were buzzed with excitement that night they popped for the opening match like it was like a world title match. Great atmosphere and great memories.

    • Jonathan Meisner

      Can-Ams/Muraco and Orton was a fun opener.

  • Curtis Williams

    While we’re on the topic of shows: What’s an act of fully expected to suck and they act ended up putting on a good show? Korn is my pick.

      I ran into Harley Race at a gas station in Nowhere, Missouri. Nice guy.

        • Jonathan Meisner

          Even in a wheelchair, I wouldn’t take any chances with Harley.

        • Aaron

          I had some practice with celebrity-ish people as legendary Cards’ broadcaster and legendary drunk Mike Shannon lived right outside my town. I just said “good morning, Mr. Race” and we chatted a second. He told me Flair is a nice guy who can’t hold his liquor, which was amusing to me at 20.

            I feel ya…I’d react the same way if someone came at me acting like a queer…I had a friend in HS that smoked weed and grabbed my other friends ass at my house…The guy was really suspect, so I straight up told him WTF is your problem and said I’d kick his and ass if he did that again..I called him a queer and he started crying…I told him it’s cool if he’s gay but DO NOT pull that shit on anyone from the crew….He never did…His dad was a piece of shit(queèr looking), I always thought he got molested by him but who knows

      Met a lot at meet and greets over the years and before shows at arenas when I was a teenager. Sasha Banks was one of the most genuinely nice. Met her at Axxess in San Jose back when she was in nxt. Her line moved slow as hell because she had a full conversation with everyone.

      Hands down nicest though I’d say was Rico (Billy and Chuck’s stylist) Just a super upbeat guy, happy to talk to everyone. Shame he’s having health problems.

      My friend and I met Bret Hart when I was 11 at an autograph signing and asked him somewhere around 25 questions once the line died down and he was very patient and nice with us.

        I don’t hate on you guys’ thing with comic books, but I just don’t get it.

        • P.K.

          I hate it…X Men cartoons were cool but do we really need 50 new super hero movies/shows every year?

          • rxchrisg

            I guess if people will pay to watch that many they should probably make that many.

          • P.K.

            I prefer shit based on true stories or just creative shit…I get that kids love that hero crap and parents of the kids get off on it too but it’s turned the movie business into a repetitive shithole….Can’t make any Hell Or High Water toys either, huh…lol

          • rxchrisg

            I don’t know if you meant that as a joke or not,but if I was head of a studio I’m sure as hell not green lighting something they can’t make a funko pop out of. What’s the point? Warner Bros isn’t a charity.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I think it’s one of those things where if you have to ask you aren’t gonna get it.

          • I still believe it’s a bubble that’s eventually going to burst and burst HARD.

            I am reasonably confident when the superhero bubble pops, it’s dragging a MAJOR studio down with it.

          • Jonathan Meisner

            Which reminds me I still need to see The Rocketeer.

          • rxchrisg

            It’s a bubble that started 16 years ago. That’s not really a flash in the pan fad. Not to mention comics were popular since like the 30s,and we’ve only just now got the technology to transfer them to the screen in a non-campy way.

          • It’s not the subject matter or anything, it’s the economics.

            When we’re at a point where a movie like Batman vs. Superman can make $850 million and still be considered a disappointment, that’s not a good sign.

            If you need to basically be one of the highest-grossing movies of all time to clear a decent profit margin, that can’t be sustainable. There’s no way that industry can rely on near billion-dollar grosses every time and keep succeeding.

          • rxchrisg

            They can get more like Punisher where it’s less crazy CGI and more guns and fists.

          • That would be fine, actually, and that should be the direction they at least think about. The first time a studio spends $600 million on a movie and only gets back $400 million, that’s gonna be eye-opening.

            The film industry is literally dependent on disposable income. It’s not like food or fuel, nobody needs movies to get by, and I think the heads of these studios forget that sometimes and just assume people will spend sixteen bucks to go see their movies no matter what their other circumstances.

          • rxchrisg

            Also everyone just steals movies. I always find it ironic when people read comics or watch movies online. I think they might be missing the message of Batman.

          • Ah, I miss the good ol’ days of bootleg movies where you could see theatre-goers getting up and walking to the aisles during the movie.

        • rxchrisg

          You like wrestling right? It’s literally exactly the same thing but with better writing. (Usually)

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I used to like wrestling.

        • P.K.

          My movie of the year was Hell Or High Water…No super hero, special effects bs…Just a good story with good acting

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Have not seen any movie this year.

          • P.K.

            See that one, it’s good..I watched it at home

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I have Cell on my laptop, just haven’t watched it yet.

          • rxchrisg

            No wonder I’ve never heard of it. How are they supposed to get merch money or blu Ray sales?

      • Phrederic

        I disagree completely.

        Jessica Jones and Daredevil are great.

    • rxchrisg

      Most of the Cap/Avengers villians are shitty.

      • Phrederic

        I think honestly the list of good Marvel villains is pretty damn short, and most of them are either X-Men or Spider-Man villains. They have some deep rosters.

        Okay, Doom is great.

        But every other cat has maybe 1 or 2 good villains and a whole lot of jokes.

        That’s why they needed to do these team-ups.

        Does Thor have a franchise worth of villains? Or Ant-Man? Does Black Widow even have her own villain?

        • rxchrisg

          The only Black Widow “villian” I can think of is the blonde replacement black widow.

          You’re right though,Thor’s main villian is Loki,who’s OK,but then it’s…..Enchantress? That’s a hell of a drop. Iron Man’s villian is booze (who I haven’t been able to defeat either),Ant Man’s villian is spousal abuse,Hulk’s villian is an evil Hulk or another evil Hulk.

          Spidey and the X-Men are the only Marvel guys who have Batman style “rogues galleries” you’d actually care about.

          • Phrederic

            Hulk has hilariously bad villains.

            Honestly, Marvel is eating through good villains really quickly.

            Especially if it looks like they’re planning on running these films for as long as they can (cause…why wouldn’t they, they’re a cash machine).

            What are the Avengers going to face post-Thanos? Doom? Do they ever have the rights for him?

            Galactus? Does Galactus have any cachet after those shitty F4 movies?

            Ultron was a bust.

            So what’s left? Kang the Conqueror? M.O.D.O.K.? Annihilus? Beyonder? Supreme Intelligence? Are we just getting doofy space shit from here on out?

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    A box wrench?

    I’ll admit, I’m not good at this.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Yeah. It be a wrench.

      • Jonathan Meisner

        ‘Tis a fine barn English, but ’tis no pool.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Oooh, “The Tinkler”.

          • Jonathan Meisner

            D’oeth!

  • Aaron

    This was a great dinner, Marge. I know I haven’t eaten that well since I was in the Army.

    • Jonathan Meisner

      Or that noisily.

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    Anybody know what’s with Marvel Studios and The Punisher? Never really had a good movie out 3, The 1 with Dolph Lundgren was WTF but it ok compared to the last shit bomb they did with the IP,anybody know what the deal is?

    • dirtyearsbill

      They’re making the Netflix Punisher show after he was in season 2 of Daredevil but I haven’t heard anything about a movie.

      • Ray Rosini Jr.

        Thanks man, just seems weird that in any of the other Marvel Universe movies with all the comic book characters he would have been in it also. Would love Capt. America Vs Punisher.

        • rxchrisg

          I’d like one where they have to team but cap hates punisher’s methods

  • Jonathan Meisner

    You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson here is, never try.

    • Stranger In the Alps

      Hello, Mr… Kurns. I bad want… money now. Me sick.

      • Jonathan Meisner

        Ooh, him card read good.

        • Stranger In the Alps

          It’s KURNS, stupid!

          • Jonathan Meisner

            Lisa! Quit getting in the way of your wealthy brothers peas!

  • cultstatus

    I was kinda joking about Omega showing up in WWE soon last night, but it does kinda feel like it has a legit shot of happening.

    • dirtyearsbill

      I would have mixed emotions if he wound up in wwe so soon. It’d be great to see him on U.S. TV but I honestly feel he’s better suited for New Japan. Plus I want him and Ibushi to have another match. Their match in 2012 was legit one of my favorite matches ever.

      • Ray Rosini Jr.

        Osprey better than Omega?

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    Giant Baba was a freak of nature.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Yes.

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    Hogan in Japan didn’t do the cartoon shit like in WWF, he would of been better that way in America.

  • cultstatus
    • Ray Rosini Jr.

      I thought HHH had heat with him because he didn’t know WWE style and was fired?

    • Jackson Smith

      HE’S FAT

      • Jonathan Meisner

        Skinny fat.

        • rxchrisg

          Fat fat.

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    One thing about nerdom, it applies to just about everything. I mean, is my sports nerdom where I mention stats off the fly and we can remember who won every Super Bowl any different? Or any wrestling fan? Or any hardcore music fan regardless of genre. Retro video games? Is that really different from any comic book or Star Wars or even Star Trek fan? No, not really. We make fun of each other of it, but it’s all the same basic brain chemistry, you like something so you remember shit about it. We’re all equals. We should be called “marks”, not “nerds”. Nerd indicates you can’t get no tail, these days any sort of guy can find a chick that’s into whatever you’re into somewhere, even exotic cars and shit.

    And with that, I’m gonna go get beer and smoke a bowl. This will take a while, so stay safe.

    • rxchrisg

      I never got the girls don’t like Star Wars thing. I went to the rogue one premier and it was full of girls. Girls like video games too. What girls usually don’t like is spaces they’re made to feel unwelcome in.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        I think in this case they feel uncomfortable in places were they’re TOO welcome. Like 10 dorky virgins staring at her. THAT is a nerd.

        • rxchrisg

          I was thinking more like gamer gate. But yeah,the reason girls aren’t at your buddies basement isn’t because they don’t like superheroes-because girls LOVE Deadpool and Harley Quinn-it’s because you’re friends basement is filthy and you wont stop staring at their tits while you explain to them why Kristen Wiig can’t be a ghostbuster.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Hey, my buddy’s basement is really nice. Totally furnished, has a pool table and a framed Jeter jersey (can’t say I approve of that, but it does add some class), it’s your classic man-cave.

            Like me, he has no clue who Harley Quinn is and doesn’t care.

          • rxchrisg

            Not you specifically,the people who think comics/sports/games/whatever are something girls won’t sit through. In my experience it’s usually that the guys around them are being creepers,not that the movie is Star Wars.

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    Whatever happened to Low Ki? be great for the cruisers

  • Ray Rosini Jr.

    Any fans of The Crow comic/movie here?

    • Jonathan Meisner

      The first movie was good. Watched it recently, hasn’t aged well with me. Got better once he killed Funboy.

      • Ray Rosini Jr.

        I love the part where there making out and Darla says “There’s a big fuckin bird over there” and Funboy is laughing and bang Eric runs and scares and classic Funboy says: “You almost gave a fuckin heart attack!!!

        • Jonathan Meisner

          The Jesus joke was fun too. I still enjoy the soundtrack too.

          • Ray Rosini Jr.

            “Don’t you fucking die”? Eric: “Put me up tonight? I love when he says “You got me dead bang”

        • Jonathan Meisner

          Didn’t realize until I watched it again last year that Tony Todd was in the film.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      I dug them a great deal as a youth. I still enjoy the first movie. The book, ehh. I did like um…Shit… Dead…Time? The one where the Billy Jack dude comes back and takes out the gang of bikers whose souls were those of the Confederate army soldiers that killed his ma and pa.

      • Ray Rosini Jr.

        Did you ever hear about the Skull Cowboy? I heard audio from somewhere on the web that Michael Berryman recorded scary as shit!!!

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          I know not of this Skull Cowboy.

          • Ray Rosini Jr.

            In the original cut before they took it out for time constraints there was supposed to be a character named the Skull Cowboy along with the crow was supposed to guide Eric to who wronged him, get his revenge and go back Into the spirit wold forever, he Eric was not supposed to contact any living people when he came back from the dead only the people who murdered him, i.e. No contact with Albert,Sarah etc. They filmed SkullCowboy in the movie, on the Crow Deluxe Edtion in the deleted scenes you can watch where the SkullCowboy is as the Crow looks at him

          • rxchrisg

            I don’t remember that from the comic.

    • rxchrisg

      Original comic was fantastic,movie was OK

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd
    • Ray Rosini Jr.

      What did you say? Finally people trolling him.

    • God bless Meltzer. The guy is THE wrestling journalist, which means he is the guy every jabroni with a SCALDING HOT TAEK goes to sound off to, and that shit has to suck sometimes all the time.

    • Rick Poehling

      I dunno, earlier he unleashed this scorcher which was also pretty awesome: https://twitter.com/davemeltzerWON/status/817549934459133953

  • Rick Poehling

    The amount of people who think that Omega is going to show up at the Rumble or something because of his tweet about taking time off from New Japan is astounding.

    • rxchrisg

      I just assumed he wanted to stay fresh so when he makes his next title attempt he hasn’t been jobbed out left and right.

    • cultstatus

      More to do with his contract expiring on January 31st and WWE probably getting ready to give him a monster offer than anything he tweets.

      • Rick Poehling

        Sure, but is it going to be more than he’s going to make in New Japan main eventing against Okada when he comes back? I truly doubt it.

        I mean, anything is possible, but I can’t believe he’d jump now. Another year or two in Japan, and he’s even hotter as a free agent.

  • Cow farts!

    • Mr. Money On The Table

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Late night Match Game, bitches!

  • It might be time for some Victoria II.

    Also, Jesus Christ, the wind is whipping outside. It’s like a blizzard minus the actual snow. It’s cold as shit and windy as fuck.

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    Beer run went to plan. Fuck is it cold out there, fuck this, I’m cracking the window and smoking inside.

    • Fuck it, I’m taking the loss and not cracking a window. I don’t give a shit if this room smells like cigarette smoke tomorrow.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        No, I mean weed smoke.

        • I don’t like my shit smelling like cigarette smoke. I blow mine out the window like you guys do with weed smoke.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I should, but I always smoke too much weed to think about it. Also, it’s 7 degrees outside. If it was nice out I’d go outside.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        My window is frozen shut. Had to hot box the room.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Yeah, had to…

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I am not going to stand out in -8 weather in order to get high. Fuck it. Just light up inside and blow the smoke real low.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’m just saying, why wouldn’t you hotbox the room anyway? I can’t do that, but you can.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s just good sportsmanship to not make your room smell like Snoop’s tour bus.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            The sell plenty of things just so it doesn’t.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          The plan is to grift some beans from a hobo. Not like a can but a whole pot. The goal is to do it in a way where he won’t feel humiliated that he just lost a few months worth of sustenance. It’s not a great mission but it gets us out on the open rails.

  • Marvy J. Blige – #6

    I realized this afternoon that everything happening in 2017 is a repeat of everything that happened in 1968. We’re right here again with an electorate racked with too much nervous energy, too much fear at of the pendulum swing of the basic American nature. We’ve gotten too bipolar now. The ride makes for too much motion sickness. Trump is the only way we can come back from an Obama. The highs and lows only get higher and lower.

    • Marvy J. Blige – #6

      Also I’m fairly certain that on some kind of deeper subconscious level Trump actually speaks to the dark angry person inside every American. That guy that wonders why we vote for these assholes and why not a single one of them is exemplary compared to a Japanese kid on youtube that can play all the parts to the Ecstacy of Gold on a violin and a loop pedal

            It’s a weird year man. I get to watch the nation lose its mind and do it because of the media industry that, in real terms, could be the darkest and least moral industry that ever existed.

            At least lawyers know they’re liars. Reporters pretend they’re heroes.
