• TraitorAlex

    I am not ready for football. This was an awful wild card weekend.

    • Jay Thomas

      Agreed. Boring, horrible games before this one.

  • Hey guys?

    Bonerz.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Wild Card Weekend Sucks

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Eli needs to absolutely deck Beckham right between the eyes should the Giants lose this game

  • JM85

    Well 1 game was good at least.

  • JDW

    Guess I’m watching the Golden Globes tonight

  • Watching an IGN video on Switch predictions, and one feature the one guy stated was “all Virtual Console purchases from Wii, Wii U, and 3DS roll over to the Switch free of charge”. That would be a HUGE selling point for a lot of customers.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Anyone that bought a Wii U is going to buy any product Nintendo puts out anyway.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      As someone who has a bunch oif VC stuff on Wii and 3DS, it would make me want to buy one that much more.

      • They had the right idea with the Wii U, where anything you bought on the Wii was offered to you at a discount, but fuck that, let everyone who got burned with the Wii U get it for free. Or at least entice a lot of early adopters with it.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          If I buy it once, I should own it across all compatible platforms.

    • That’s a win for me.

  • I’m starting to think there isn’t going to be a Manning in the Super Bowl

  • Bruce Chung

    If Roger Goodell really cared about the INTEGRITY OF THE GAME, he’d be personally measuring every ball for their pressure

  • BTW Not my Brothers Keeper

  • ProjectBlue

    Now you use beckham on returns? Assholes

  • ProjectBlue

    Ereck fucking Flowers sucks

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    lol Come on by now you should grab that ball until a whistle is heard!

  • WHAT THE FUCK

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Playoff Eli Manning was undone by Playoff Odell Beckham

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    New Sherlock tonight! I’m excited for the new series to start tonight.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      It was just OK.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Dammit you were supposed to say it’s an amazing return to form

  • ProjectBlue

    Really awesome decision to go all in on FLowers and tell every tackle they tried to sign “we’re good at left, wanna be right tackle?”

  • I had Randall Cobb during the season and he did dick on my fantasy team.

    • Dwayne

      I had him too. I dropped him

  • ProjectBlue

    I like McAdoo but he needs to back away from playcalling next year too.

  • ****1/2 Shovel Knight race, but I’m not sure how I feel about Undertale being the last game of the week. Feels too short for that role.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    https://instagram.com/p/BPAs06sjWsx/

    cena to njpw confirmed.

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    Ripkowski is a heck of a football name.

    • Jay Thomas

      You couldn’t get more of a Packer player than this guy.

    • Bruce Chung

      Too bad he couldn’t be a safety.

  • Jeremy Rinehart

    If you’re Dallas, would you rather play New York or Green Bay in the Divisional round?

    • Dwayne

      I’d rather play the Jets

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      NY. That offense would get squelched by Dallas’s D and GB has been playing really well the last month and change.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      They lost to the Giants twice. I’d rather play just about anyone else.

  • Phrederic

    Rusev’s Roman Reigns persona on UUDD is absolutely brilliant.

  • So I can safely assume Gummo Manning will not be derailing the Brady Train this year, yes?

  • The latest is that the price point for the Switch would be around $250, which is pretty damn tempting and competes with the eventual dropping of price for the XBox One and PS4.

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      The Switch is going to be amazing*

      *I’m a Nintendo fan boy

      • No lie, I’m insanely hyped for this, and yes, I’m a fanboy. Zelda games overtake any other video game I may be playing at the moment, including Elder Scrolls, Fallout, and Grand Theft Auto.

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          The new Zelda looks awesome. Im really intrigued by the new Mario and the MK8 remake(?)

      • Aaron

        I haven’t bought a new system since PS1, but the Switch does look cool.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I hope it’s awesome, and I like the idea that they’ll consolidate stuff like Zelda and Mario to one platform, as opposed to console-exclusive and handheld-exclusive stuff for those properties.

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          I wish they would have kept the NX name

          • Switch rolls off the tongue easier to be honest.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            Switch is an appropriate name that presents what it is right away, I like it.

    • $250? meh. Pass.

      • You sarcastic bum!

        You’re being sarcastic right?

        • Unless something changes, money’s gonna be tight in 2017. Probably won’t be making that kind of investment… unless Nintendo decides to send me a Switch to review on the Geekery, then I’ll play the shit out of it.

  • Bruce Chung

    Hand off to Ripkowski I bet.

  • Bruce Chung

    Ripkowski says rest in peace.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    SOMEBODY STOP THE DAMN MATCH! I MEAN IT, ENOUGH’S ENOUGH

  • ProjectBlue

    Ugh, figured 35-10 would be worst case score

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Watched the 2009 rumble yesterday. I forgot how insanely shredded Orton was back then.

  • Bruce Chung

    Aaron Rodgers has a lot of property damage in commercials.

  • Aaron

    I’ve learned from John Cena’s IG that he’s definitely a right-winger, and also really weird.

    • Dwayne

      I rather look at Emma’s

      • Aaron

        Well yeah but you have to warm up.

    • Bruce Chung

      I learned from Total Divas he want to put dogs down in an instant.

    • He also posted a Kenny Omega photo. Remember what happened when he posted an AJ Styles photo?

      • Aaron

        The marks are in an uproar. It’s funny.

    • The Professor

      Right wing how?

      • Aaron

        Typical rich guy Republican – rah rah Reagan/Arnold, Gadsden Flag, that sort of thing. He’s not a reactionary hill person or anything.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Not many of those in massachusetts.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        At least now Curt Schilling has someone to hang out with there.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Not completely shocking given the amount of military-related stuff he does.

      • Aaron

        That is a weird delineation: non-military who do a lot of that sort of thing are generally right of center while military and Vets themselves are more diverse.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          It’s funny how that shakes out, esp. to me, since I have a lot of family — Mexican — who have military backgrounds.

          • Aaron

            I work for the VA. It’s a pretty diverse set of opinions, but it does lean right more due to location than anything.

  • RedStorm

    Joe Buck is just savaging Odell. Imagine if he scores a TD and does the Moss pants drop. Buck may die.

    • …YEAH GET ONE TO ENZO BECKHAM! GO DEEP!

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Sounds like a guy who grew up around the St. Louis Cardinals to me!

      • Aaron

        What’s weird is that his dad wasn’t like this. Jack understood he just described games on TV.

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          Joe, unlike Jack, thinks he’s a star

    • Vintage

      Fuck him and his couch.

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      “A DISGUSTING act…”

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    ‘Member Tiki Barber???

    • Dwayne

      Quit right before the team won a championship

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        They won because he and his fumblitis quit.

      • ProjectBlue

        Left his pregnant wife for a college chick

    • I remember Ronde!

      • Dwayne

        The one with a ring

    • Facts

      He has a twin bed

  • Facts

    Well the Giants wont be going far this year.

    • Dwayne

      It’s early. Spring training didn’t even start yet!

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    #ManningFace

  • Jeremy Rinehart

    With Rogers’ Packers, I expect them to win in the playoffs. With Favre’s Packers, I expected him to throw a crushing interception at the worst possible moment.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I love the viking radio guys freaking out on air when he threw that pick against the Saints.

      • Jeremy Rinehart

        Favre giveth, Favre taketh away

      • I’m pretty sure I heard Drew Magary cursing all the way down here that day.

  • Facts

    Looking forward to the games next week. Except the Pats slaughtering the Texans.

    • Night

      Whew that game is gonna get OOGLY.

      • Facts

        Might need to call a priest.

      • CHOO. CHOO.

      • Aaron

        Especially the masked assailant coming down from the commissioner’s box to hit Brady with a lead pipe.

  • maskedcabana

    Always enjoyable seeing the last Eli face of season.

  • juvydriver

    So, what are the chances we see HHH on Raw tomorrow night? 105% ?

    • maskedcabana

      College championship game tomorrow. Gotta wait one more week.

      • Comdukakis

        he learned from the master Double H.

      • juvydriver

        Oh yeah, I forgot about that. 1 more week then he can save the company.

  • Bobby
    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Bobby is breathing a little easier right now.

  • Comdukakis

    fuck Cena. That is all

    • Cuck Fena.

    • Night

      You’re preaching to the choir.

      • Dwayne

        I don’t sing

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          I don’t dance son.

      • Comdukakis

        you just totally know Cena is a patriots fan too.

        • Aaron

          At least he’s not all bad.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      “Nikki should be the leader of the division, do it or I go get my own sitcom on FOX full-time! BRRRRRRRRRRABADOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

  • Mikey

    Cena is the Man.

    • Comdukakis

      blocked!!!

      • Mikey

        :/

      • Jeremy Rinehart

        You won’t be able to see him

    • Aaron

      Hi, Vince!

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      “How about instead of putting over the Nexus, I just shake off that DDT on the concrete and I win 2-on-1 in the last 60 seconds. RISE ABOVE HEAD DAMAGE BRRRRRRRABADOOOOOOOOOOO”

      • Mikey

        The nexus sucked anyway.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Wade was really good when his character was getting solid pushes, either as Nexus leader or BRB.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        I know he admitted in hindsight that was a badcall but I feel like foresight should have caught that one.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          That’s like when refs admit they blew a call or the league says as much. It’s a nice gesture to admit such a thing, but it doesn’t actually change anything.

      • Comdukakis

        “How about I win the belt at WM even though I only work 12 shows a year now? RISE ABOVE PART TIMEISM BRRRRRABADOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!”

        • Man, it’s gonna be weird as shit in a few years when we get part-timer Roman Reigns going over Kenny Omega clean as a sheet at ‘Mania.

  • Facts

    Cena never drew like Austin

    • Mikey

      That is true

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      Few did

      • Aaron

        Few = one. Exactly one.

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          Didn’t Rock pass Austin thanks to his last two WrestleMania matches?

          • Mikey

            No one had as high of a peak as Austin.

          • Jeremy Rinehart

            With all the PPVs, Austin had an advantage Hogan didn’t have

    • Comdukakis

      only guy who drew like Austin is Hogan

  • Aaron

    Have the Rolling Stones killed.

  • Vintage

    Awesome Games Done Quick update:

    Mega Man 4-way race is underway.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    John Cena is overrated

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Benjamin Lowe is poopy.

  • John Cena is a pro wrestler, actor and former World champion.

  • Facts

    John Cena is from Massachusetts

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Yep. I’ve seen his Best Buy membership account when I worked there. He actually does live in West Newbury.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Even bundled up in warm layers, Erin Andrews still is a hottie.

    • Bobby

      Overrated.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Bobby is overrated.

        • Bobby

          False. I’m barely rated in the first place.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        She can properly rate herself sitting on my face.

    • Curtis Williams

      I never watched her vidya.

  • Bobby

    John Cena is a man almost in his forties who still wears baseball caps and jean shorts.

    • Curtis Williams

      Nice to have fuck you money

    • Dwayne

      Baseball caps are cool. I’m not down with the jean shorts though

  • Jackson Smith

    Ha HAAAAAA they’re coming off as gay

    I thought those jokes were in the 80s, man.

  • Jeremy Rinehart

    In 3 weeks, John Cena will win his 16th world championship

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Facts

    Mark Wahlberg on HGH turns into John Cena.

  • Comdukakis

    John Cena is a guy who cheats on his wife, buries talent, and acts like a general asshole. But in his defense he is smart enough to pretend to like kids by doing PR visits for make a wish that any other WWE superstar would do in his position.

    • Jackson Smith

      Niiiiiiiice

    • Bobby

      Don’t they all do the make-a-wish stuff anyway?

      • Jackson Smith

        Punk raised that issue in the Colt podcasts, I believe

      • Comdukakis

        yes. but only Cena gets a PR blowjob for it

    • “Paging Mr. Hogan. Mr. Hulk Hogan. Someone stole your gimmick. You can’t see him, though.”

      • Comdukakis

        for all of HOgan’s faults (and I hated the guy big time. his return in 2002 helped sour me for years on wrestling) he did make a wish before Vince realized it made WWF look good

  • Curtis Williams

    Why are we talking about Potato Salad?

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      One of my most vivid memories of potato salad was watching Tony Atlas make some on one of the MTV Real Life shows.

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    This reminds me, I need to grab myself a pair of Jean shorts.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    John Cena should’ve defeated the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30 then turned heel after the match it would’ve rejuvenated his character

    • Bobby

      I’d be on board for this if it also meant Undertaker got sent out to pasture in the process.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    the only time Cena didn’t look like a Vanilla Ice goof was when he used to wear the retro jerseys; rival cities as a heel, city they were in when a face.

  • Bobby

    Now that football is over, anyone down to watch something on the Network?

    • WWF1987

      Sure

      • Bobby

        What do you wanna watch?

    • Night

      December to Dismember!

      • Bobby

        Is this the really, really bad ppv?

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          No, it’s a pretty underrated PPV. You’re thinking of November to Remember which ironically you’ve forgotten.

          • Bobby

            I don’t remember the names, I just know ECW had one really awesome ppv and one really bad ppv during their Heyman run.

          • Comdukakis

            december to dismember was an abortion. And not the good, fun kind that KB hates so much

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            I’m just fooling, December to Dismember is the legendary bad PPV from the 2006 ECW Revival.

          • Bobby

            I realized you were about a half second after I hit post.

            Shit is just flying over my head here lately and my reflexes aren’t fast enough to catch it.

  • Jackson Smith

    Casey Affleck looking grizzly as fuck

    • Comdukakis

      who? that’s the nobody that somehow got his management to pay SNL a ton of money to let his sorry ass host SNL

      • Macklin Man Without Password

    Since it’s Rumble season, anybody up for watching a Rumble PPV?

    • Jackson Smith

      Benoit Rumble NOW

      • Bobby

        I’m down. The whole thing or just the match?

        • Jackson Smith

          I’d just go for the match

  • SpiralTap

    Turned on the Network live stream, and was looking at my laptop when I heard the opening of Royal Rumble 1990.

    I instantly thought “why the fuck are they playing an early 90s WCW PPV on the live stream?”

  • ProjectBlue

    Huh, Kickass is british

    • Vintage

      He played a good John Lennon.

      • Curtis Williams

        And Spider-Man plays Paul McCartney

  • Benjamin Lowe

    2007 Royal Rumble was a fun show

    • SpiralTap

      That’s the one with the killer Cena/Umaga match, right?

      God, I love that match.

    • Benjamin Lowe

      2014 Royal Rumble with an absolutely phenomenal Match between Orton and Cena and a unforgettable Rumble match

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    The fuck is the Global Wrestling Federation?

    • Jeff Jarrett’s Little Promotion That Couldn’t/Nazi Gold Laundering Promotion.

      • djowalsen: Known Hater

    • Aaron

      Global ran out of Dallas and was on ESPN.

  • Bruce Chung

    Let me know when we’re a go on the 2004 Rumble Match.

    • Jackson Smith

      Paused at Benoit’s theme starting.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I’m ready when everyone else is.

    • Bobby

      I was about to post that question.

      We’re doing the 2004 Rumble, folks. If you wanna join in.

  • Comdukakis

    if you ever want to depress yourself and reassess all those “good people” who voted for Trump, make the mistake of reading the comments sections on shootings in a troubled city such as Flint, Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, etc. The racism, lack of caring, utter glee in what occurs is sickening.

    • Aaron

      But also why doesn’t anyone do anything?

      • Comdukakis

        shooting in Flint (what’s new) and posters are talking about how important it is to make the victims pay for their own medical care and end the ACA because only criminals use it anyway.

        • Jackson Smith

          I personally had no idea I was a criminal, particularly when using the ACA to get my glaucoma eyedrops.

          • Comdukakis

            I made a rare foray into actually commenting and pointed out the biggest users of the ACA are whites in southern and midwestern states.

        • Aaron

          Especially Flint, where the people have been poisoned and all.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      My cousin was born and raised in Oakland,where violent crime has reduced significantly. Its possible to fix it.

      • Comdukakis

        Oakland has good jobs within driving distance and public transportation. Flint has neither.

        • Comdukakis

          the key is jobs and education. Flint has neither. All the people left are too poor to get out or criminals. It’s sad.

      • Yeah, Baltimore today is still waaaaaaaaay better than it was in the late ’80s.

    • Benjamin Lowe

      Welcome to 21st century America dude

      • Comdukakis

        I know it just is troubling to be reminded now and then that a large part of the white right really doesnt give two fucks if the poor or minorities all die.

  • Jackson Smith

    3….

    • Jackson Smith

      2…..

      • Jackson Smith

        1….

  • Jackson Smith

    Anddddddddd go!

  • Jackson Smith

    Already I’m sad this dude wrecked “Whatever” from ever being played in concert again.

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      Yeah, such a great song.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Yeah, such an awesome pump-up song. I used to listen to it before baseball games (when I played in HS) to get amped.

  • Bobby

    It took them fucking forever to number the entrants as they came out. Seemed like something fundamental they’d have from the start.

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      Yeah, to think that they didn’t start that until 2004!

    • Comdukakis

      it used to be funny hearing Gorilla try and remember what number someone was. He’d get it wrong

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s wife is 23 years older than him (and a good director who slummed it with 50 Shades). TGGI

      Good for Aaron that he’s able to indulge his favorite taboo, clearly.

  • Jackson Smith

    Orton Wyatt!….no, just Orton. With hair, fratboy Orton.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      And only a couple of tribal tattoos.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    I miss the Evo theme. Couldnt stand the stable, but loved the theme

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      Evolution is a mystery….

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Evolution is a mystery

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Orton sporting the awesome blue trunks

    • Bobby

      Sweet powder blues.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Powder Blue is never not legendary.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Orton was really,really good in 2004 before the face turn.

    • Jackson Smith

      What a DUMB idea, just genuinely.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        We joke about guys turning into Cena but turning him from a ruthless heel to Randy Maivia was crazy.

        • It also didn’t help that he didn’t get his own theme song until AFTER he got kicked out of Evolution.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      The Legend Killer stuff and the IC run was aces. That feels like the last time the IC title boosted someone to legitimacy.

    92 and 01 after this one?

    • Jackson Smith

      92, 01, and 10 just to go through my personal top 4, lol. I’m down.

      • Bobby

        I’m off tomorrow so I’m down for as many as we can. What’s #5?

        • Jackson Smith

          A combo platter of the Rumble Rebellions

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    HOLLA HOLLA IT’S MY THUGGIN N BUGGIN HEAVY, PLAYA! THE WORLD’S STRONGEST MAN, MARK HENRY, AND NOW THIS RUMBLE MATCH IS A TAG TEAM MATCH PLAYA

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Flint should suffer the same fate as Arkham City

    • Aaron

      Already happening.

  • SpiralTap

    Fun fact: the highlight of the 2001 Rumble is King marking out for his cousin and singing along to the theme.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Fun fact: the highlight of the 2001 Rumble is the whole thing.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Drew Carey fucking sucked.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          He tried to bribe Kane and he creeped on Trish. Drew Carey ruled.

          • Comdukakis

            I liked the Drew Carey stuff

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            Me too. Thought it was fun.

        • Jackson Smith

          The Drew Carey bit was great!

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    So, I know it’s late, but I saw Moana last week, and outside of a few pacing issues, I thought it was pretty great. The visuals were amazing, the Rock was really good in it, and I thought it was much better than Frozen.

    • Comdukakis

      ehh. it was decent but not anywhere near one of my favorite disney movies or a classic.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        What’s your favorite?

        • Comdukakis

          hmm. maybe Hercules for humor. Cinderella is a gem but of course not as ripe with humor for adults. Love Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Mulan also. Tangled was pretty fucking funny.

          • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

            Tangled is the only one I haven’t seen yet. Hunchback is my favorite, could have been one of the best Disney movies ever if the middle didn’t become so light hearted because they remembered kids were watching.

          • Comdukakis

            yeah Hunchback is dark in much of the movie with maybe the nastiest Disney Villain of all time (Scar?)

          • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

            Frodo.

          • Comdukakis

            no I meant Scar might be the nastiest along with Frollo (I think it’s Frollo not Frodo, Frodo is Lord of the Rings)

          • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

            Ah, ok. And thanks for the correction. Maleficent or Jafar would have to be my picks. Chernabog could have been (he is the embodiment of evil) but he’s just so bland.

  • Jackson Smith

    “The biggest man in the Rumble most often wins it.” I love Needing to Forget History wrestling commentary.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Awesome sequence with Benoit and Tajiri

  • Bruce Chung

    CCCCCombo-Breaker.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    2001 Royal Rumble is the Antithesis of the Rumbles of the last 5 years

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Mark actually looks in great shape here.

  • Bobby

    APA was still a thing in 2004? Jesus fuck.

  • Aaron

    Top Rumble Youngsters

  • Jackson Smith

    JBL looks so weird as JBL in APA/Acolyte gear.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      He looked weird with the blonde short cut while still doing the APA thing. It fit once he became JBL

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    LOL five months from World Champion Bradshaw. A guy so irrelevant at this point he wasn’t even in the WWE game while he was champion.

    • Bobby

      And he’s the first one eliminated here.

    • Which game was out? Here Comes the Pain?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        He wasnt in HCTP that was out nor the first SD v RAW later in 2004 despite being world champion at the time, since they locked up the roster around April or so at the time.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Chris Benoit is here and he’s really mad Chris Benoit is here and he’s really ANGRY

    • Jackson Smith

      Loved that bit, still sing that to myself sometimes seeing old matches

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    I really enjoy Black.ish, glad the actress who plays the mom won an award for it.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      She and Anthony Anderson are really good on that show.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        They have great chemistry together.

      • HITMAN7204

        Anderson is an underrated actor. Liked him in me myself and Irene and really liked him in the Departed,

  • Jackson Smith

    Future world champion JBL dumped in a minute, lulz

  • Bobby

    Tarantula in a Rumble match. Not a very smart move, Tajiri.

    • Comdukakis

      the tarantula was always worthless in WWE. you have to break after 4 seconds

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Like guys who go up top, DONT GO TO THE ROPES IN A RUMBLE

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Of all the guys in the Rumble right now, I would not guess Rhyno to still be competing 12 years later.

    • SpiralTap

      Yeah, whatever happened to Benoit, anyway?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        He’s not in heaven, Rey….HE’S IN HELL!

  • Bruce Chung

    Well Atlanta won something.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Good! Easily the best show on TV.

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      Glad that Donald Glover is getting some accomplishments this late in his career. I remember first hearing of him through his Comedy Central standup special in 2011, and he’s been a favorite of mine ever since.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Have you ever seen the Derreck sketches on YouTube? He and his old friends were hysterical.

        • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

          I saw the Opposite Day one, that alone was phenomenal.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            That’s one of the best! There’s a few others I love, too. Their movie, Mystery Team, is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in my life.

      • Ioan Morris

        Late? He’s early 30s, right? His trajectory has seemed fairly steady to me.

  • Bobby

    No Matt Facts yet?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Retired it at this point, it was mainly an 03 thing. Then they turnedhis Tron into a MS-DOS kind of deal.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Imagine if the WWE still listened to their fanbase like they did during the 2004 Rumble

  • Jackson Smith

    Matt before the nonsense

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    DELETE DELETE DELETE

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Remember when Matt wasn’t fat?

    • Jackson Smith

      Matt Hardy before MATT HARDY WILL NOT DIET jokes just doesn’t count.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Back when he was less successful? I mean, really, Matt Hardy’s career is just astounding.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        He should really write a book when it’s all said and done. I’d read it.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I would definitely read that!

  • Bobby

    HOLLA IF YOU HEAR ME!

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Of all the guys in the ring who was most relevant in 2016, I would not guess it would be Matt Hardy, in TNA no less

    • Kenny_Reigns

      And now ROH!

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Where’s Brother Nero

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Drugged out of his mind.

  • Jackson Smith

    Steiner’s theme was still fun

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Neat! In a nice little Shyamalan twist now my tablet disconnects itself from the Verizon Network at random. I hate this fucking thing so god damned much.

  • Aaron

    Curly, straight! Curly, straight! Curly, straight!

  • Jackson Smith

    Steiner taking the field to Suplex City, hopefully doesn’t gas out again like at last year’s Rumble

  • Benjamin Lowe

    To bad this match has been DELETED from WWE history

  • Jackson Smith

    Heh….Future WrestleMania Main Eventer Matt Morgan.

    Sorry, Corny.

  • You could tell Farooq was done when he not only was taken out of the Survivor Series match in 2003, but he didn’t make either Royal Rumble that happened in 2004.

  • Bobby

    Fuck it, I liked the Hurricane gimmick, but it’s another instance of something I’m surprised is still a thing in 2004.

  • Benjamin Lowe

    Did WWE not have a better backup plan after Lesnar left the company because turning Bradshaw into JBL seemed like a real spur of the moment situation

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      If edge wasn’t injured,he might have been pushed sooner.

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      Vince really loved the JBL character so much.

    • Vintage

      They had been trying to push Bradshaw as a main event guy for years.

      • johntcole

        Huh? He was always a tag guy before. Well, except for 96 through 98 but he wasn’t pushed as a main guy.

      • Yeah, they made him the second face on Raw behind Austin in 2002.

    • johntcole

      Sadly the gimmick was 5 years too early.

    • Booker T as the top heel guy who “didn’t want to be there” was a perfect gimmick.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      The roster was super thin; Angle was hurt, Brock left, Benoit and Edge went to Raw. Booker and RVD were guys they werent super high on considering the jobs to HHH.

  • Jackson Smith

    Shane Helms when he actually counted

  • LScisco

    I hate blackout restrictions when you can’t even watch the game in your local area.

    • Comdukakis

      yeah that’s BS

      • LScisco

        Was looking forward to Jazz-Grizzles on NBA TV and I’m blacked out but I don’t get FSN-SE which is based in Memphis because I live like 6 hours from Memphis.

        • Comdukakis

          baseball is the worst. games on MLBTV are crazy. I have like 6 different teams they black out that are FAR from Michigan

  • RedStorm

    So these Odell/Trey Songs rumors…never change internet

  • Jackson Smith

    Ewww, Booker’s remixed theme

    • Bobby

      Yeah, you don’t mess with perfection.

    • CAN YOU DIG IT?

  • Jackson Smith

    Rumble already a third over.

  • Ioan Morris

    Eww, the comments on Cena’s Instagram.

    • Comdukakis

      I hope most are “Fuck Cena”

    • RedStorm

      A lot of “choke me daddy’s”?

  • Bruce Chung

    Spoilers Vaughn!

  • Bruce Chung

    Kidman towers over Reese.

  • ProjectBlue

    Kidman’s getting weird looking

  • Jackson Smith

    “Let me get one more.” Same thing the dude said at the time.

  • Bobby

    So not a fan of unmasked Kane.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Went into my bosses office to grab a file and theres a big book on the desk called the 2017 Mobile Sports Production Yearbook

    The cover? WWE production trucks

  • WWF1987

    What the heck is going on with Steiner and Orton? lol

  • Jackson Smith

    Future World Champion Kane.

    You know it’s true.

  • LScisco

    Unmasking Kane was just bad all around. That’s when the dude no longer mattered to me.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I like how his burned face was basically an Ash Wednesday mark

      • LScisco

        Yeah, for years of hyping up his injuries and deformities it was just awful. They tried to play it off as “psychological scars” but I didn’t buy it at all.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          At least his hairline was better than Sasha’s

    • wnyxmcneal

      I was at that RAW!

  • wnyxmcneal

    I went to the Nets game today. The Nets are a national disgrace.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      The lost to the 76ers. Time to rebuild!

      • wnyxmcneal

        The 76ers fans chanted Trust The Process.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          That was hilarious!

        • RedStorm

          They chanted that after their first game then lost like 10straight haha

      • Miko363

        The best part is the Celtics have their first round picks the next two drafts so they can’t even rebuild through the draft.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I was making a mean joke! Lol

          • Miko363

            Haha I thought it was 50/50 whether you were serious or not, but I never miss a chance to brag about Danny Ainge totally fleecing the Nets and destroying them for an entire half-decade.

          • wnyxmcneal

            Occasionally I can kinda defend the trade at the time. It’s just the stupidity of having Kidd coach the team and then jettisoning Truth because that’s when they decided the luxury tax was icky

          • Miko363

            It was so strange, like when they didn’t immediately win a title, Prokhorov got bored and decided he didn’t really want to own a team anymore.

          • wnyxmcneal

            Yea, that’s what set me over the edge. I get the logic that the team as constructed wasn’t going anywhere and had just quit against a depleted Bulls team at home so they had to do something but ugh.

            I mean, getting rid of Crash and Hump in the same trade was enough for me to want to kiss Billy King on the mouth

          • RedStorm

            Ainge fleeced the Nets just enough so he could make the Celtics just good enough to be competitive in the first round.

          • Miko363

            Oh this is definitely a trade where hindsight makes the Celtics look better. But if you make a trade where you move your highest paid aging stars, and a team is willing to hand you all their picks in years you know they’ll be trying to rebuild too, you do it in a heartbeat.

          • RedStorm

            Oh hell yea. It was a genius move, he’s just not using the picks to get pieces they need.

    • RedStorm

      They should just put everyone on 10 day contracts.

      • wnyxmcneal

        And trade Brook Lopez to Golden State or San Antonio or Cleveland.

        • RedStorm

          He’s a bad basketball player. Just big and can occasionally shoot.

          • wnyxmcneal

            He’s the one good player we have since Jeremy Lin is a part time player.

          • RedStorm

            I liked Brook when they got him but his foot injury basically turned him into the Great Khali.

          • wnyxmcneal

            He shoots threes now. It’s awesome

          • RedStorm

            I saw a concert at Barclays and on the way out people were hassling me to buy Nets tickets. I was dying laughing. I told them I’ll make the trip out if they wear the Chris Gatling-era throwbacks.

          • wnyxmcneal

            They’ve tried to scrub the New Jersey era out which makes me sad.

          • RedStorm

            That’s absurd. I can understand the Devils never agknowledging the Colorado Rockies-era, but the Nets became a respectable team in NJ.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I’ve only heard of them because of Jay-Z.

      • wnyxmcneal

        He owned 1/18th of one percent

  • Bruce Chung

    “I think OJ did it.”

  • Jackson Smith

    O.J. Simpson show keeps sweeping.

  • johntcole

    I’ve got no idea what this new FIP is supposed to be.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Is that tonight or was it last night?

      • johntcole

        Last night was Style Battle, which got mostly good reviews

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I *really* want to see that. I might buy FloSlam this week.

  • Jackson Smith

    Oh yeah, this is the I KILLED YEWWWWWW phase.

  • Jackson Smith

    How sweet of Spike that he was willing to wait for an Undertaker tease. Bad reward for it.

    • *Backstage, Spike Dudley gets ready to come out*

      Taker: “Hey Spike, wait a minute, I’m going to make the sound guy play that GONG noise to scare my idiot brother. Then you can go out.”
      Spike: “WHOA HOLY SHIT YOU’RE ALIVE???”

      • Jackson Smith

        Exactly, hahaha

  • Jackson Smith

    Marcia Clark suuuuuuuuucks, sorry lady

  • Bruce Chung

    OJ! OJ! OJ!

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    So, I guess that Spike Dudley is still in the 2004 Rumble match to this day?

    • Jackson Smith

      What an endurance record!

  • Bruce Chung

    I don’t love any of these award shows, but I’m not sure which one is more BS, Oscars or Golden Globes.

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    OJ has been killing it tonight.

    • RedStorm

      Killing the whites since 1994

    • We talking the Rumble or the Golden Globes?

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        Yes.

  • Bobby

    I have no fucking clue who this Rene Dupree guy is.

    • maskedcabana

      The French Tickler!

  • Jackson Smith

    Hey, Jeff Toobin got an invite, lol.

    • Bruce Chung

      I mean it’s based off of his book mostly.

      • Jackson Smith

        I know, it’s just unusual the author gets to go.

        • Bruce Chung

          They couldn’t get OJ to come.

  • Bruce Chung

    Please say “we couldn’t have done this without OJ!”

  • Jackson Smith

    “We want to thank O.J. for killing his ex-wife and a waiter, without which my price tag wouldn’t be this high…”

  • Bruce Chung

    People would have been confused in 1990 if we told them “OJ was a terrible person…but a great TV show.”

  • LScisco

    Blue Jackets win again, this time in OT over the Flyers

    • RedStorm

      That Rangers game was awesome.

  • Jackson Smith

    If only Dupree could end the “broken brilliance” and do the French tickler dance afterward nowadays…

  • Miko363

    Renee Young was an answer in the Boston Globe Sunday Crossword today.

  • razor172

    This might be an unpopular opinion, but I am disturbed by Sarah Paulson being in a romantic relationship with a 75 year old woman.

    • Jackson Smith

      Between her and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, parent/offspring roleplays in bed ARE SO HOT RIGHT NOW

    • Bruce Chung

      She’s an actor. They do weird things.

    • Mikey

      It is a bit weird. She looks like she belongs in a nursing home.

    • Comdukakis

      if both parties are consenting and 18 or over, who cares?

      • Mikey

        It doesn’t but Paulson is pretty and her s/o is not

        • Comdukakis

          and? that’s disturbing? I guess I have different definitions of disturbing

          • Mikey

            I don’t think it’s disturbing. It is surprising

          • Comdukakis

            there’s the word. Kinda like Lyle Lovett and Julia Roberts

          • Dwayne

            I’d be disturbed by sleeping with an old woman but i dont care if someone else does

    • There’s worse, Courtney Stodden is 22 and she’s married to a guy that’s almost 60, Doug Hutchinson.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      those damn hollywood liberals.

  • I always wanted to buy OJ’s “If I Did It” book that he had the balls to release in bookstores.

    • Jackson Smith

      I have a copy from some leak site.

  • Jackson Smith

    Shelton Benjamin, a year away from one of the best superkick spots ever.

  • Bruce Chung

    50 Shades Darker needs to have 50% more nude Johnson.

    • Comdukakis

      needs to be released unrated. with unsimulated sex

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “Shave your back” A-train.

  • johntcole

    In the 45 minutes since this new FIP started there’s been about 5 minutes of actual wrestling.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Seriously? Ugh…I had high hopes, too.

      • johntcole

        They’ve been setting up characters and feuds which is fine but still, yeesh.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Damn…hopefully they right the ship soon. I really loved the old FIP under Gabe. The Heartbreakers were GREAT heels.

          • johntcole

            The big angle they’re setting up is a mega heel stable with Sami Callahan, AR Fox, and Darby Allen.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I like that as an idea! All 3 are spot machines and kind of nuts.

  • Jackson Smith

    Ernest Miller’s Ricardo!

  • Mike Mears

    What the fuck is FIP?

    • Bruce Chung

      Fucking in prison.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      It was a sister promotion of ROH a decade or so ago. I’m surprised they’re still around

      • Kenny_Reigns

        They’re a Florida promotion owned by one of Gabe’s best friends.

  • Bobby

    Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit from that last year’s Rumble is probably in my top 5.

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      One of the best matches I’ve ever seen.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    On a lark I applied for WrestleMania press credentials under the name of the Seattle PI, which is mostly my own inside joke because I’m pretty sure I’m living in an era post intelligence.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      How do you apply for these? I’m down for trying. I filled out paperwork to be in the NBA draft one year.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        Send them a heavily doctored press pass request. The world thing that could ever happen would be if they actually gave it to me.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I’m going to have to look into this. I love doing goofy stuff like this.

  • Bruce Chung

    So the Fanning sisters’ acting talent might be inversely proportional to their ages.

  • Jackson Smith

    A preview of this year’s return pop

    • Bobby

      Is he confirmed?

      • Jackson Smith

        Just guessing

  • Jackson Smith

    Dr. House defeats TWO O.J. people

  • Jackson Smith

    “To some Republicans, even the word ‘association’ is sketchy.”

  • Bruce Chung

    Laurie brings class to Balding Vampires everywhere.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Who are you talking to?

      • Dwayne

        Me

  • Bruce Chung

    Sophia Vagara and anal. Sure.

    • Bobby

      What’s this now?

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      That was definitely a botch, I’m sure.
      :mouths “no it wasn’t”:

      • Bruce Chung

        Yeah no way. But the world anal should be okay.

  • Bobby

    “ALRIGHT, NOW YOU’RE #21! GET YOUR ASS TO THE RING!”

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    Speaking of great matches, I saw Okada vs Kenny Omega yesterday and I loved it. I don’t know if it should be given 6 stars, but it was still a great match with some of the craziest low key moves to the neck I’ve ever seen (the top rope drop kick to Okada’s neck is something that stood out to me). Also, the last 15 minutes were really insane.

  • “The Hollywood Foreign Press have an anal tradition”

    Live TV folks…

    • RedStorm

      Roman Polanski knows a thing or 2 about that.

  • Jackson Smith

    Sofia has them thangs strapped

  • Bruce Chung

    The Stallone sisters weights combined are probably less than Strowman.

  • Jackson Smith

    Sheriff Austin is on the case!

  • Mikey

    Outside of being barely clothed, what else has Emily Ratajkowski ever done?

    • Bruce Chung

      She’s extremely hot when she doesn’t talk.

      • Dwayne

        I’ve only seen her. Never heard her speak

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Nothing. That’s her job, show them titties, in movies or music videos or modeling. A very nice gig, but that’s all she’ll ever contribute

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      To her credit, she does being barely clothed pretty well.

      • Mikey

        Oh for sure. Gorgeous

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        It was funny when she said she hates being only associated with Blurred Lines, like she wants to be known for more than staight up tittying.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Well she did Gone Girl. That was an acclaimed movie. Where she had two lines and showed her tits. Whoops.

    What is this generic ass rock shit for Christian’s theme? Where’s the opera one?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Doesn’t get it till later in the year.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I thought you meant Waterproof Blonde. He ditched At Last when he got the IC title in the previous summer

  • LScisco

    Someone should apply for WrestleMania credentials for Scott’s Blog

      Bayless doesn’t want to be tortured.

      But he he’s willing to shake hands and kiss asses, he can get a show on the Network too.

    • DONE!

  • Bruce Chung

    Globes are moving at a brisk pace.

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      Much better than the Oscars.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Definitely a WM issue where they should cut all the dead time and trim the show by 30-60 minutes. The only non-award interludes should be Best Original Song performances and the In Memoriam segment.

        • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

          Yeah, they have WAAAY too many non award segments.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            We don’t need 15-minute sub-SNL sketches for the hosts. they get the opening segment/monologue, then random joke cracking for the rest of the night as they introduce the award announcement hosts.

  • Jackson Smith

    Eh, no one cares about Nunzio’s shot getting spoiled

    Coolest part about requesting credentials from the WWE, it has to be done by fax.

    • Jackson Smith

      “Who doesn’t use fax, pal?!”

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        I seriously had no idea my printer even had the option of sending faxes until I got the hair up my ass that caused today’s madness.

        • Mike Mears

          The fuck did you do now?

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Submitted a request for a press pass to Mania for the lulz

          • Mike Mears

            What if you get one?

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            God, right? That would be a nightmare indeed.

          • Mike Mears

            For real though, would you use it?

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            If they want to let me into the building for free I suppose I’d have to.

          • Mike Mears

            Do you have to tell them what publication/outlet you’re from? I’d assume so, right?

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Yep, I picked the PI because that webzine is perfectly representative of the garbage dumpster this whole idea sprang from anyway.

          • Mike Mears

            Now I want to submit one. It’s been a few years but I guess I could call myself a Blogofdoom.com writer.

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Even if they don’t give it to me I kind of want to go to Orlando anyway and interview girls off backpage about their experience with wrestling fans.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            I wouldn’t be surprised if they accept you. An extra body they can count for their attendance.

          • I’ve been turned down for credentials for a Raw, and I actually had a press application that was endorsed by an editor.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            They couldn’t confirm your identity. Because of the lucha mask.

          • Shut up, mini-Meekin.

        • Jackson Smith

          Ha, I also took a long time to discover my printer actually does that too

      Hmmm, I have one at work, but it might be awkward when they reply…

    • Macklin Man Without Password

    Wow Gabe, a forced prostitution angle.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Ugh. He has serious women issues.

      • Mikey

        Gabe Sapolsky?

        • johntcole

          Yep

        • Kenny_Reigns

          He sometimes writes angles with women that are awful. Not always, but enough where it’s concerning.

          • Mikey

            That’s really weird. Doesn’t he have a family too?

          • Kenny_Reigns

            He does. It’s very odd. And he’s involved with Shine, which is excellent women’s wrestling, but every once in a while he has an angle involving women where it just shouldn’t be done.

          • Mikey

            He shouldn’t do that!

      • johntcole

        It could have been done worse honestly, she hasn’t gone through with it(yet). But it’s still super skeevy.

      The Adam Sandler movie??

        No, the Russell/Hawn flick. You’re thinking of “Going Overboard”

        • RedStorm

          Ah alright. I remember that being a fun little jaunt as well.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        Marley and Me broke me for 20 minutes, and that was before the dog dies when Owen Wilson was telling the vet reasons why he didn’t think that Marley would die.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Try Shattered Dreams instead.

  • Bobby

    Man, imagine if they bothered to use Goldberg correctly instead of just feeding him to Triple H and Rock.

    • Rock put Goldberg over, which was definitely the correct call.

      • Bobby

        Huh. I remember Rock being criticized for something involving Goldberg.

        • Vintage

          Rock put him over, but made Goldberg look like a goof the entire way by showing him up. Even Scott turned on him for that match.

        • I wasn’t a great match, but I don’t think it was atrocious.

          I remember Goldberg should have powered out of the sharpshooter but did a rope break instead. Also Rock sold the spears like he’d been shot, so that was good.

          • Bobby

            Rock is an A+ seller when he wants to be.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          He insulted him in a promo maybe? Idk, I remember people complaining about Rock trash talking Goldberg in a promo. That’s what Rock does.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Sadly, it was in a negative star match instead of a dream match that could’ve been awesome. We talk about Brockberg being a stallfest, but I think they hit two moves in the first 10 minutes of Rockberg.

    Scott on the original Rock vs. Goldberg match:

    “Very long stall session to start and Goldberg overpowers Rock with the LOCKUP OF DEATH. You know, just because Hulk Hogan got that over 15 YEARS AGO doesn’t mean we still need it today. Another one and Rock bails. Back in, they exchange shots and Goldberg overpowers him again and dumps him. Rock takes a long count to waste more time. WCW was at least smart enough to limit Goldberg to 5 minutes or less. More stalling as Rock waits around outside, and then he catches him with a necksnap and a lariat. Crowd eats that up. Rock slugs away, but gets hit with Goldberg’s version of the Rock Bottom. That’s the first wrestling move from Goldberg in this match. Rock sells it FOREVER and Goldberg tries a spear, but misses and lands on the floor. Yeah, take an indestructible superman character and make him SELL, great plan. Rock gets the Scorpion King Deathlock and holds it for a long time, thus making Goldberg look even weaker, but he makes the ropes. Lawler correctly points out that he took the coward’s way out. There’s no excuse for silly mistakes like that – Goldberg should have powered out. Rock goes low, but Goldberg gets a fluke spear (move #2 on the match) and both guys are out. Goldberg makes the comeback and powerslams him (move #3) and gets two. Goldberg no-sells a couple of clotheslines, but Rock hits him with a spinebuster and kips up, thus turning himself babyface by making Goldberg look like a chump. Rock Bottom gets two. I love Rock like the son I never intend to have, but this is so manipulative on his part that he’s going to kill Goldberg out of the chute. Goldberg clotheslines him to cut off the spit-punch (drawing boos), but Rock hits him with a People’s Elbow for two. That spot is just BEGGING for Goldberg to pop up and spear him. Both guys crawl around as the match drags on, and Goldberg spears him. The crowd now totally turns on Goldberg, chanting “Goldberg sucks” while Rock slowly climbs to his feet and gets speared again. Jackhammer (move #4) finishes at 13:04. The only way this could have been ANY worse was if Rock had gone over, and for a minute there I was thinking they might do that, too. This just totally exposed Goldberg as a shitty worker with a limited moveset who’s out there for the paycheque and nothing more. Not that it’s a huge shock, but you can forget him carrying the company over the summer now. 1/2*”

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      1/2* is generous, that’s easily -** for me. It’s just as bad as Brockberg.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      13 minutes?
      Didn’t feel a second shorter than 45 minutes.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      It was a mistake to sign Goldberg. Old- time WWE fans were never going to warm up to a WCW star.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I dunno, he was really fucking over. The heat for him at SummerSlam was off the charts, so of course an injured HHH retained in the Chamber.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          With a taped up crotch and bike shorts. Like a roidbellied cyclist.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

        Backlash 03. Make sure to watch the super-coked-up Rock promo. He’s going so fast even Dusty and Backlund would tell him to take a breath.

    And now Benoit has to do by himself what a half-dozen guys couldn’t. Incredible booking.

  • So Baldwin’s hat actually said “Make America Awesome/Groovy Again” in Russian. If anything, that makes it funnier.

  • Jackson Smith

    Down to Benoit vs. Big Show and here comes my favorite final elimination in a Rumble evvvvvvver.

    • riraho

      Piper Flair was better

      • Jackson Smith

        Flair/Piper wasn’t the final elimination of ’92.

        • riraho

          Oh final sequence. Hbk Bulldog 95?

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Oh wow…. Blair Witch is already out on DVD. Totally forgot about that movie.

  • Jackson Smith

    Skill, not strength. Smarts, not size.

    Easy mark for it. Love that final Benoit elimination so much.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      JR is amazing on the call too. Almost as good as the Mania call a few months later.

      • Jackson Smith

        Oh yeah. JR’s perfect on it.

  • Bobby

    So fucking sad this shit might as well not exist anymore.

    This and WrestleMania were incredible moments.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Perfect booking from WWE too.

      Make me wonder who he hated the most of all of the ones he had to push.

    • White Thunder

      Bruce Prichard shed some light on this situation recently on his podcast. Highly recommended podcast.

      • Mikey

        I missed that. What did he say?

        • White Thunder

          He said Vince was positive about him winning and thought why not give it a shot. Prichard is cool because he doesn’t have an axe to grind.

          • Mikey

            I like him and he’s very fair. He really hates Meltzer though

          • White Thunder

            His podcast i great, it’s basically a smart mark trying to fact check shit with a dude who was there for everything.

      • Jackson Smith

        Really, cool, what’d he say?

  • Bobby

    So 1992 now or what?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Sure. I’ll miss that one with my commute home, but I’ll be down if you guys do 2001 after 92.

    Bought some wrestling books today. Bought Titan Sinking + two books about Memphis wrestling from Jim Cornette + Bret Hart’s old WWF DVD (which was just $5 on Amazon). Figure it’ll keep me company if I get anymore snow days.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      I forgot about Titan Sinking. Might seek it out on my kindle.

      • LScisco

        Yeah, I don’t have one so I bought the paperback. I see that he’s got 2 other books out about 1996 and 1997 that I’ll have to read eventually.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Iiiiiiiiiinteresting. Will keep my eyes peeled for them as well.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Oh and get a kindle. They’re amazing. I have spent more on books in a month than I have my entire life pre-kindle.

          • Daniel O’Reilly

            Kindles are the greatest thing to happen to reading ever. Plus, I love the feeling of pounding a nail in the print industry’s coffin every time I buy an ebook.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          They decline in quality somewhat, but still both are worth reading.

  • Jackson Smith

    Okay, 1992. My pick, and of course a lot of people, for GOAT status.

    Starting at 9:25 eastern.

    • Biff ♥ You

      I’ve seen the 1992 Rumble about 721 times.

      722 won’t hurt. ONWARD!

    • White Thunder

      92 is the best. The best wrestler ever in one of his greatest performances, plus a stacked star studded Rumble, and one of the greatest color commentary performances ever.

  • Jackson Smith

    Eh, make it 9:30. Get your beverages of choice!

  • Biff ♥ You

    The Bullet Club is kind of unique to me; even though it’s declined from what it once was, each of the three successive leaders of the stable (Prince Devitt, AJ Styles, Kenny Omega) all managed to use that position to springboard into bigger and better things. Devitt became a massive international star and used it as a springboard to the WWE. AJ resurrected his career in New Japan, becoming the best wrestler in the world en route to the WWE himself. And Omega has turned into one of the hottest acts in pro wrestling right now, and looks to be a megastar in the making. That’s not bad, really.

    • WWF1987

      Hoping Cody won’t be the next leader.

      • Biff ♥ You

        Whether or not Omega leaves (I doubt he will), I think 2017 probably sees the end of the Bullet Club in New Japan. Someone on here pitched the idea of having it become an ROH stable, but to me that’s just kicking a dead horse.

        • maskedcabana

          If anything, the Elite splits away from the BC.

          • Biff ♥ You

            Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks should be married forever. That’s one act that will never not be awesome to me.

        • WWF1987

          Omega has one year left on his deal. To me, the BC died once it started adding ROH guys. LIJ replace them as the best heel group and now Suzuki-Gun is back, too.

            This. It’s overkill to have three major heel factions. Minoru Suzuki and Tetsuya Naito are more than capable of holding court on the heel faction front while CHAOS does whatever it is that CHAOS does.

    • Jackson Smith

      Nash – “Yeah, but…” *hair flip* “I look impressive in an airport, mark. The big 3 of the nWo is way better!”

  • Bruce Chung

    lol, good skit.

  • Mikey

    LAW/TSN have their “Worst of 2016” tonight at 11. Should be fun.

    • That’s gonna be a long ass show.

  • From the ESPN app: “Odell Beckham Jr. punched hole in wall and banged head against door after loss — Sal Paolantonio.”

    Get that kid some help.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      I hate that guy.

    • Bobby

      He’s become one of the biggest sore losers in sports. Fuck that guy.

    • WWF1987

      He’ll be partying on a boat tomorrow.

  • Do you prefer Rumbles where they played the entrance music for each entrance, or Rumbles where they didn’t play it, like in the early ones?

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Entrance Music.

    • Bobby

      With music. Definitely.

    • Jackson Smith

      With music for sure

    • Mikey

      Entrance. Had trouble with 88-95 with the lack of it.

    • I’m just happy when the Rumble isn’t six guys laying around “selling” while two guys trade spots.

      So basically I stop rewatching the Rumbles after 2010.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        2010 was the last good one.

    • WWF1987

      With music.

  • Bruce Chung

    RIP 2016.

    And more specifically, Fisher and Reynolds.

  • Jackson Smith

    And away….we….go, immediately post-speech by On The Take Tunney

  • Bobby

    Starting the Rumble.

  • Jackson Smith

    Mmmm, that Winged Eagle looks extra good at this event. Even on Tunney’s arm.

  • Bobby

    “I bet Flair’s got either 1 or 2.”

    Pretty close, Gorilla.

  • Jackson Smith

    “RIC FLAIR! – no.”

    “Stop!”

  • Jackson Smith

    “BOY, LOOK AT THEM!”

    My dad said something similar, at which point my mom smacked his arm as I was only 7 at the time.

  • Bobby

    One of my favorite calls in this match is when Gorilla ominously tells Heenan that Haku doesn’t like Flair.

    • Comdukakis

      I thought that was barbarian

      • Biff ♥ You

        It was.

    • Jackson Smith

      “Barbarian doesn’t like Flair…”

      • Bobby

        Oh, Barbarian. My bad.

    • Biff ♥ You

      “I never thought I’d say this; it’s not a skirt, it’s a kilt!”

      “Why you no good, double crossing… it’s a skirt, not a kilt!”

    • White Thunder

      Haku drops a sick piledriver early on.

  • Jackson Smith

    That is one loud crowd, great atmosphere. It’s only DiBiase in ’92, but they’re batshit.

  • Jackson Smith

    “NO! DAMN IT! OHHHHH, DAMN IT!”

  • Bobby

    Sherri looking hot as fuck, gotdamn!

  • Jackson Smith

    Rick Martel’s longevity record, that was a nice feather in the cap.

    • LScisco

      Too bad it only lasted a year. I wish he could’ve made the final 2 of that Rumble. Heat would’ve been off the charts versus Hogan because the crowd in Miami HATED Martel.

  • Mikey

    2016 was just an average Rumble but felt great after the 2015 and 2014 train wrecks.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      You liked the booking with Roman sleeping backstage?

      • Mikey

        Roman was of course terrible but the actual match was kept together well.

    • Biff ♥ You

      It was almost ruined by the Roman Reigns return, to be honest. The crowd was very close to turning on the match before Triple H saved it.

  • Bobby

    “NO!”

    “YES! It’s Ric Flair! You can kiss it goodbye, Brain.”

  • Biff ♥ You

    “DAMN IT!”

  • Jackson Smith

    Look at those classic wrestling grannies in the front row. They take their wrestling seriously!

  • PeteF3

    Man, I don’t even have to fire up the Network for this live-watch. I’ve got the damn Rumble practically memorized.

    • Jackson Smith

      No kidding, lol, fans of a certain age right?

    • Biff ♥ You

      Same. I can still hear the commentary in my head going on 25 years (TWENTY-FIVE FUCKING YEARS) later.

  • Curtis Williams

    Do the Warriors not have away jerseys anymore?

  • Jackson Smith

    Love how neither Flair nor Perfect are worried at all. High five, ready to go.

  • PeteF3

    “I’m going to have to apologize to the people. I don’t think I can really be objective.” “WHEN HAVE YOU *EVER* BEEN OBJECTIVE?!”

  • Jackson Smith

    “Did you hear what I just said, Brain?”

    “No, what’d you say?”

    “No one, EVER, has drawn numbers 1 through 5 and been there at the end!”

    “AWWWW SHUT UP!”

  • Biff ♥ You

    My God, the 1992 Royal Rumble turns TWENTY-FIVE this year. A quarter-century old!

  • Jackson Smith

    “So sad, the financial managers who would lose their job just because of the luck of the draw…”

  • Bobby

    Sitting there talking trash on the apron, what an idiot.

  • LScisco

    Looking back, the WWF should’ve had someone win one of the early Rumbles at #30 to really put over the whole “luck of the draw” deal. Weird how there were more winners at the #1 and #2 spots than #30 for a long time.

    • Comdukakis

      Yep undertaker was the first

      • LScisco

        Best time to do it was DiBiase in 1989 but they just had to put Big John Studd over.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          I think a giant did need to win one early too to put over the big man in rumbles threat.

        • White Thunder

          Studd quit after Andre was shooting on him night after night during house shows.

          • LScisco

            Well, in fairness Studd couldn’t really “go” in the ring anymore either.

    • maskedcabana

      Always wanted to see the last 2 eliminated before #30 comes out, making them the automatic winner.

  • Mikey

    The Knickerbocker Arena was a great name

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      That word in general is just great.

      • Dwayne

        I dig the word Arena too

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          You and Ferrari and Kenny are my knickers

  • Bobby

    And the network just randomly fast forwarded. Chico Santana and Shawn are in the ring now.

    • SpiralTap

      I fucking DESPISE the random fast fowarding and rewinding.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        PS4? I never had the problem on my XBox or laptop but holy hell the PS4 app I’m pretty sure was designed by the Chinese

        • Bobby

          PS3 for me.

        • SpiralTap

          It rarely happens on PS4, but I keep my PS3 in the living room, and it happens all the damn time on PS3.

    • PeteF3

      Has Shawn made guacamole out of El Matador yet?

  • Jackson Smith

    Haku, the man of a thousand shoot stories

    • LScisco

      Who now repairs Toyotas! I can just visualize him putting an engine in the Tongan Death Grip

      • PeteF3

        Also he has a kid who has to be near 7 feet tall who’s going into the NJPW dojo, and whom Vince will probably blow his load over if he sees.

        • Jackson Smith

          And the advantage against not getting the Roman treatment is fans will be too intimidated to do so if Haku ever looks at them funny.

      • Bobby

        Haku just looks at the engines and they go back to working because they fucking know better.

  • Jackson Smith

    “Back off, Flair, let Haku do the dirty – uhhh, do the kicking.”

    • SpiralTap

      A man at the top of his game.

  • Jackson Smith

    Shawn Michaels, fresh from being disgraced by Marty Jannetty’s disgusting act of cowardism.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    It’s possible to get an ulcer from television? This Sherlock episode tonight has my stomach in knots and I just sneezed blood.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Napoleon Blownapart said it was just okay. That has not assuaged my worries.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Might have made them worse. OKAY ISNT ENOUGH.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        Probably not enough Donald Trump.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Too scared to look up legit reviews. Not that I need to. I don’t care if other people like it. I need to like it!

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Yeah I almost went to reddit a few seconds ago then remembered I’m subscribed to /r/sherlock and it would no doubt have some terrible top post like “CAN YOU BELIEVE MARY WAS WATSON ALL ALONG?!” or something equally awful

    • Curtis Williams

      In a good or bad way?

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        There are good ulcers?!

  • Jackson Smith

    “It does matter, some people hate Flair more than others.”

    • PeteF3

      “They’re JEALOUS is what it is. There’s no way you could hate that man.”

  • LScisco

    It’s funny how Heenan was a mark for HBK in 1992. Loved the little bits of “Shawn Michaels has left the building!” which were ways to be subtle about putting over new talent.

    • Pete Labozetta

      Agreed. Always got a kick out of those little tidbits.

  • Dwayne

    The Memphis Grizzlies are pretty good

  • Jackson Smith

    Bobby’s constant need for something with a kick is wonderful.

  • Jackson Smith

    Ah, El Matador in 1992, the greatest what if year of his life, lol.

    • LScisco

      I remember an awful Coliseum Video exclusive where Tito “fought” bulls.

      • Jackson Smith

        i definitely remember that, fuck

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    *sadly stares at his tablet*

    • SpiralTap

      Mr. Money On The Tablet

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I fuckin’ hate it. It’s got shitty WiFi issues. I returned it for a new one yesterday and the new one has the same issues. Plus this one spontaneously drops the 4G network too.

        • Bobby

          Is it a Samsung or an Apple? Might as well just go with a Samsung or an Apple.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s neither. It’s some jackass Verizon tablet. The whole thing makes me very punchy.

          • Might as well take it back and say “gimme back my money bitches.”

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Hopefully I can resist the urge to smash it over some poor Verizon idiots head like a 21st century Paul E. Dangerously.

          • Yeah, I’d avoid that.

            Unless they try to hide ice cream from you. Then all fucking bets are off.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            It’s my knee jerk Neanderthal reaction to junk technology. I just wanna smash the fuck out of it and move on.

      • . . .

        DAMN IT.

        How did I not make this joke last night?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It sickens me how many upvotes this has.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Why do you keep buying tablets? They’re terrible.

  • Jackson Smith

    *off Flair’s giant lowblow to the Bulldog*

    “I’d do that to my grandmother if I had to!”

  • Eric Von Erich

    I’ve seen the 92 rumble too many times. I’m going with the 90 rumble currently on the live feed of the network. Those quick promos from all the guys before the rumble were gold. No scripting, just some cocaine and 30 seconds.

  • Bobby

    “Barbarian doesn’t like Flair…”

    Fuck and yes.

    • Scott

      “He’s not a hair-dresser on his day off, you know!!”

  • “I’ll be able to say I won this at the last-ever Golden Globes. I don’t mean to be gloomy, it’s just that it has the words ‘Hollywood,’ ‘Foreign’ and ‘Press’ in the title.”

    Hugh Laurie is awesome.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      So, if I’m getting this right, tonight is Hollywood’s chance to publicly moan about not getting their way?

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        What happened now? You’re my news source.

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          Every other actor on the Golden Globes is making a super edgy statement about how badly they don’t like losing national elections (despite their very own hubris being one of the reasons the left lost but, ya know…)

          • RudoWakening

            “Hi! We’re cunts and going to whine now!”

          • Kenny_Reigns

            The irony there is delicious. It’s like – keep talking, assholes, you might lose us the next election, too!

      • Yeah, because in the HISTORY of America, no one ever made fun of a President or President elect before.

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          Remember when they wore hats denouncing Obama?

          Me either.

          But those hats man, eddddggggyyyyyyy

          • Obama was a pretty chill guy who didn’t get his panties in a bunch when Fred Armisen did an impression of him on SNL.

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            He did, however, order more deportations than any president in history but that hardly matters when the right letter is next to his name.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            And murdered a ton of people through drone strikes. I’m like the biggest Obama fanboy ever, but he has his flaws.

            Hillary tried to kill Julian Assaunge with a drone which is why Assaunge was leaking her e-mails with such glee. But why let facts get in the way of anything?

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            It’s almost like what a President does doesn’t actually matter.

          • The Professor

            If trump gave democrats everything they wanted, they still wouldn’t like him

    • I loved House up until the season ender for the 2nd to last season. Totally jumped the shark for me. His new show on Hulu is pretty good.

      • The Professor

        Same

  • LScisco

    Part of me wished Tito got the belt in 1992 as a classic “wtf” moment.

  • Jackson Smith

    “….Barbarian doesn’t like Flair….”

    “Barbarian doesn’t like anybody! He barely liked me when I managed him! They don’t call him The Barbarian ’cause he’s a hairdresser on his day off, you know!”

  • SpiralTap

    The other night, holed up at my hotel, I was chatting with this really pretty girl working the front desk. She was definitely picking up what I was putting down, and she mentioned having a chihuahua named Chalupa Batman. I was like “oh my god, that is the best dog name I’ve ever heard.” She said it’s a reference to The League. I said I hadn’t seen it, but I’ll be sure to check it out.

    Finally got home tonight, and I find out from my best friend that The League is about fantasy football. Oy, I don’t even like reality football.

    She’s pretty enough that I’ll have to feign interest in the show for the next time she works. Or maybe I’ll somehow enjoy it? Who knows.

    • Pete Labozetta

      I loved the show and know multiple people who really liked it and don’t watch football. My ex g.f. really liked it (she watched it before I even knew her) and she pretty much loathed all sports.

      • RudoWakening

        That’s how my wife is. She hates every sport but loves The League

      • SpiralTap

        This is excellent news.

    • RudoWakening

      I fucking hate fantasy football with a passion but HOLY FUCK that show is so good. The first real classic episode is “The White Knuckler.”

      Plus, it’s got Jon LaJoie and he’s hilarious.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Yes to ALL of the above! I’m a HUGE Mark Duplass mark, though.

    • Curtis Williams

      It’s not centered around fantasy football but it’s definitely a thing in the show if that makes sense.

      I’d wife her immediately, but I’m not you.

      • SpiralTap

        Oh yeah, I’m already planning the marriage and reception.

        I was stuck and couldn’t go out to eat, so I had to buy a frozen dinner from the Suite Shop. I don’t know shit about frozen dinners, but I bought (actually was free since I’m an employee staying overnight) some kinda Stouffer’s southwest chicken panini or something. Told her I was gonna go back to my room and eat dinner real quick. She said “have a good night” and I turned to say “oh no, I’ll be back.” She replied “sweet!”

        Anyway, the meal was awful, and when I returned, she asked how my room was. I said “I came back so soon because the meal was awful, and it’s making my room smell like buttsweat.” She went back into the office and brought me a slice of chicken breast with garlic parm on top that she made herself. It was absolutely fucking delicious.

        You’re all invited.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Great show.

  • Bruce Chung

    Jake Gyllenhaal seemed uncomfortable describing the synopsis of Deadpool.

  • Jackson Smith

    Fuck it, Repo Man was hysterical

    • Dwayne

      Darsow knocked that character out of the park

    • I always thought the character was stupid, but it came at a time when I wasn’t watching much, if at all.

    • LScisco

      That character was better than it had any right to be.

  • Looked at the scores for this weekend’s games. Seemed odd. Usually the first round is pretty close.

  • Bobby

    Having watched Darsow go from Smash to Repo Man must have been jarring in real time.

    • It was odd realizing the guy was previously in Demolition,and later on, understanding he played a Russian.

    • Eric Von Erich

      I remember recognizing the tattoo on his arm and realizing they were the same person.

  • The Professor

    So I’m at the ucla basketball game. I’m surrounded by a bunch of kids under 10. Only 1 is watching the game. The rest are screaming and yelling about anything but the game. The only thing they care about is free gummies if the opposing misses 2 free throws. gawd I hate them

    • Bruce Chung

      I thought about chokeslamming a kid today for getting my way at the grocery store repeatedly because he was busy spinning.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        I’ve done it.

    • LScisco

      Sounds like students at my local high school basketball games that are all on their phones and not paying any attention to the game.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      If pro games had free gummies after free throw misses, I’d also be screaming and yelling about them like a child under 10.

    • If it was free ice cream…

      …well, you know.

  • Jackson Smith

    Even Babyface Greg Valentine gets cheers. This crowd is hot.

  • Bruce Chung

    Best drama…

  • Bruce Chung

    The Crown.

  • Jackson Smith

    “WILL YOU SHUT UP! SHUT UP!”

    Bobby’s throat must’ve been killing him the next day.

  • The Silver Fox

    Favorite moments of the 1992 Rumble: watching Roddy Piper, Kerry Von Erich and then Greg Valentine go after Ric Flair, even though their histories with Flair weren’t acknowledged.

    • Everybody hates Flair.

      Except Sting, about 50% of the time.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Has anyone on the Golden Globes said Fox News is biased yet? lol

    • LScisco

      People wonder why ratings are down and the answer is that no one wants to hear politics at an awards show. It’s why I quit watching the Oscars.

  • Jackson Smith

    “A dark horse, a long shot could actually go all the way and win the big one!”

  • The Professor

    One kid is crying because he is not getting the free gummies

    • Growl and then say “shuttup or I’ll give you something to cry about!”

  • TIL that only cool hipsters don’t like the prequel trilogy. Could have fooled me.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      What prequel trilogy? Star Wars? Because the prequels are terrible *unless* Sith Jar Jar is a thing.

      • There are moments worth watching. Darth Maul makes up roughly half of them.

      • Right, I forgot the Hobbit is one now.

        They both suck.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Well then call me Miles Davis because I thought those movies fucking sucked from jump street.

  • RawisStoned

    As a Giants fan I am honestly not that bummed. I had a feeling they weren’t winning against a hot Packers team. The D is really good and they can focus on improving the offense in the off season.

  • Jackson Smith

    Hercules in his Power & Glory gear. That just makes me sad we won’t see a PowerPlex.

    • That was a great finisher.

      • Jackson Smith

        The PowerPlex was the truth!

    • LScisco

      It’s really a shame the WWF decided to push the Nasty Boys instead. Awful decision.

      • Miko363

        I’m stunned Paul Roma didn’t move to Tampa to try to buddy up to Hulk.

  • Jackson Smith

    Boss Man with his patented crazy man flying out routine. Nimble as fuck for a fat dude.

    • RawisStoned

      What show are you watching?

      • Jackson Smith

        ’92 Rumble

    • I loved when in 1998, they were selling the FUCK out of the match between him and Austin at the Deadly Games Tournament.

    • I dug Boss Man a lot.

    • Mikey

      He got in damn good shape in 91-92

      • Jackson Smith

        1991 Boss Man, at WrestleMania VII? He was downright lanky.

        • Mikey

          He was. By the time he left in 1993 he started putting the pounds back on

  • Bobby

    I hate Hacksaw, I’ll just go ahead and say it. Dude was a goober and I can never unsee him with snot all over his face.

    • RawisStoned

      The snot incident is difficult to unsee

      • Curtis Williams

        Explain?

        • RawisStoned

          After his match with Bad News Brown at WM V he was walking around the ring with snot hanging out of his nose, (Jesse, naturally, was quick to point out how disgusting it was)

    • Jackson Smith

      Hacksaw was a groundbreaking character, gotta be fair.

      • RawisStoned

        Explain?

        • Jackson Smith

          Hacksaw was the first mentally retarded character in WWF history, it’s historic.

          • RawisStoned

            Ouch

          • Jaysus.

            That’s a bit harsh.

          • One of my favorite jokes from the old thewrestlingfan .com site was that one of them referred to Duggan as “I Am (Uncle) Sam”.

      • *board breaking

    • Who he was pre WWF is completely fucking different, but I’m with you.

    • LScisco

      I was never a fan of Duggan. Just thought he was inferior to other workers, but to his credit he was really over.

  • The Trumbo movie with Bryan Cranston is really good so far.

    • The Professor

      Movie was ok. Cranston was good

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I liked it a lot, but I’m a sucker for movies about writers.

      • I loved his smack talk at John Wayne.

        • . . .

          I will be avoiding this film.

          • John Wayne fan?

          • Yup.

            But, I like Cranston. So, I’ll probably end up watching. It’s just a movie.

          • It’s the story of the Hollywood Ten.

          • Eh. It’s not purported to be a documentary, is it?

          • No, it’s a drama based on the events.

          • Which means fiction based on stuff that happened. So, what is portrayed is likely not all that accurate – and I mean the whole film, not just whatever was said to John Wayne. Doesn’t mean it ain’t worth watching.

    • I mean, he’s a good actor, but I don’t know if he could bulk up enough to play a believable home run hitting machine.

  • Jackson Smith

    This crowd was molten for Roddy. Went insane for his IC title win earlier, huge chants now.

    • LScisco

      I sort of wish they had Piper win that Rumble. The whole “winning 2 titles in one night” would’ve been a really fun historical moment.

      • RawisStoned

        Although he lasted about a half hour. Between that, winning the IC title, and the crowd popping for him all night is was probably his best night ever in pro wrestling

      • Jackson Smith

        Yeah, that would’ve been cool. Crowd would’ve loved it.

  • Jackson Smith

    “See, he’s jogging. He’s wasting time, he’s wasting energy.”

    “He’s not wasting time or energy.”

    “I don’t even know what I’m saying right now!”

    • SpiralTap

      People livewatch RR92 pretty often, and they’re never not the most entertaining posts of the night.

      • I may have to watch this in bed while I fall asleep tonight.

  • Jackson Smith

    Speak of the devil, it’s the trailblazer! Seriously, his entire run improves infinitely when you realize he was handicapped.

  • Jackson Smith

    See – Hacksaw, blessed by his simple mind, was the first one to realize he should grab IRS by the tie. The theory works! lol

  • LScisco

    I also remember how bad Bushwhackers-Beverly Brothers was on that RR92 show. So bad even Monsoon and Heenan just ignored it.

    • Jackson Smith

      If the Beverlys weren’t nearly murdering jobbers with the Shaker Heights Spike, they kinda sucked

    • SpiralTap

      I honestly love that match just because of how Brain is so fucking cruel to Jameson on commentary.

  • Bruce Chung

    Meryl Streep just said MMA and football are not art. Heh.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      I’d like to see her face off with Amanda Nunes.

  • Jackson Smith

    Oh, Trust Me Jake. So good.

    Also so good – SO MANY potential believable winners in this Rumble. Had some big arguments with friends on the playground before this event, lol.

    • JimbobJones

      Hey, I’m having arguments on the playground with my friends regarding this year’s Rumble.

      It’s a little creepy, I’ll admit. Especially since my kids don’t go to that school.

      • Bobby

        Here, have an upvote.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    Piper vs Savage really should have happened at WM6. Dusty and Bad News can fight each other instead. Dusty can paint himself half black if he must. But Hot Rod vs Macho is a match that Wrestlemania deserved. I’m sure no one jobs, but even a wild brawl with a DQ finish works

    • RawisStoned

      The promo’s would have been epic

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        Hell yes. So much coke

  • Bruce Chung

    And she’s definitely delivering a political statement.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Of course she is. *sigh*

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Isn’t she a huge hillary fangirl?

      • Bruce Chung

        I don’t know. Maybe.

    • The Professor

      Who is she

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Quote: “Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah”

  • Jackson Smith

    Savage gives another example of not really being able to think through his actions in a Rumble. But at least it fits the wildman character.

    • LScisco

      Ha, Savage had three straight dumb Rumble moments. He no showed in 1991, jumped over the top rope in 1992, and then tried to cover a dude in 1993. However, you can justify ’91 (running from Warrior trying to kill him) and ’93 (being so beat to hell by Yoko that he made a dumb decision).

      • Bobby

        Actually, I think 92 is more justified than 93. He was bloodthirsty to get at Jake in 92, 93 was just dumb.

    • Bobby

      I like how the rules change year-to-year to fit the booking.

      Savage should be gone.

  • LScisco

    I think of my highlights of writing reviews is when Kenny Bolin, a big heel manager in OVW, e-mailed me a pissed off rant for one of my OVW reviews (many years ago when CM Punk, The Miz, Elijah Burke, etc. were in the territory) because I misspelled his name. I was kinda flattered someone in the business bothered to read my stuff.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      OVW was dope back then!

      • LScisco

        There was a dude down there named Seth Skyfire that I thought was pretty good but he never made the main roster.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I remember him! Oh wow…haven’t thought of him in years…

          • LScisco

            Yeah, I lost track of him after OVW. He was TV champ there, I remember that.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      CM Punk v The Spirit Squad was actually a great feud!

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Safeguard the truth. Okay, Meryl.

    • Jackson Smith

      Eh, when a key member of the Fourth Estate is telling us “we can’t say lie, that has implications of maliciousness,” I can’t blame someone for calling bullshit. That is absolute horseshit and it’s a key problem with the media today – all about access.

  • Miko363

    I just finished Sully. It’s totally fine and Tom Hanks is good as usual. But it’s strange to see a movie loaded up with big names and Eastwood directing be so pointless. It wasn’t even 90 minutes and it felt like they had to pad things out just to get to that.

    • Bruce Chung

      I haven’t seen it. But marketers and film makers do different things.

    • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

      It’s an interesting 30 min TV special. Not a hollywood movie

      • Miko363

        Exactly. I’d probably find a PBS or NatGeo documentary about it captivating. Sully on the phone with his wife for half the movie? Not so much.

  • Robert

    I’m watching the live Royal Rumble 1990 on the Network, and dammit, here’s Dino Bravo to add a whole lot of suck to the Rumble

    • RawisStoned

      Rumor has it he’s the worst

    • SpiralTap

      I’m watching that, too.

      It’s a shame he wasn’t assassinated on the way to the ring.

  • Transferring music to my new phone. Between the ROM and the memory card, I’ll fit my whole collection on there.

    And to think, my first computer had 4 megs of RAM and a 170 mb hard drive.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    Political bullshit from actors/musicians is one of the biggest reasons why I have no interest in awards shows

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      You’d think they’d have learned the lesson this year that their prattling on and talking down to the electorate actually chases people away but, no. No, apparently not.

      • The Professor

        Plus people besides liberals go to the movies, watch tv, listen to music, etc.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          This is NOT POSSIBLE!

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        Yeah. Their elitist bullshit is exactly what people hate hearing. You’re entertainers, not philosophers

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      It used to not be so bad when you didn’t have to read them spewing it on twitter every single day.

    • LScisco

      Yeah. I mean, I respect people’s opinions but when I watch an entertainment show I don’t want a political rally. If I wanted that I’d turn on cable news, C-SPAN, etc. I get that the entertainment industry is liberal and they hate Trump and stuff, but I’d rather not think about that when watching these shows.

    • Welcome to Hollywood since… forever.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I’m a super liberal and I’m tired of people preaching to me about what to believe. I can’t even imagine what it’s like for the half of the country who’s conservative.

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        Exactly. It’s precisely what makes so many regular people dismiss the perceived “liberal agenda” out of hand.

      • Napoleon Blownapart
        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          And if there’s one thing we’ve learned in 2016, it’s to definitely trust polling

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Ok, but the Republicans control the House, Senate, and White House, so…

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            Sure because conservatives vote at a much higher rate.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            So, we should still preach condescendingly to them because it encourages liberals to stay home?

  • Mikey

    Woof these award shows are garbage

  • Robert

    Earthquake!!

  • Jackson Smith

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind it, but why is Death Becomes Her like the #5 trending topic, lol. Vastly underrated movie.

  • Robert

    Ok, fuck you Earthquake for eliminating Dusty.

  • SpiralTap

    Award shows are garbage.

    You know what three letters are in “award?”

    Raw.

    Coincidence?

    Hell no.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      You know what other three letters are in “award?” WAR. WHICH IS WHAT TRUMP IS GONNA DO IF WE DON’T STOP HIM BY CRYING ON TELEVISIOOOOOOOOOON

      • It’s not like Obama said he’s really good at killing people.

      • YOU KNOW WHAT OTHER LETTERS ARE IN AWARD? Penis. That’s right. Penis. Look it up.

        • SpiralTap

          I love looking up penises.

          Penii?

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          When did I hijack your account?

          • It’s that tag team synergy at work.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            10-4 Kemosabe!

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        And Bravo.

    • The Professor

      You know what three letters are also in award? Waa so shut up

      • SpiralTap

        Sorry about your abusive relationship and your autism.

        • The Professor

          I wasn’t saying it to you. I was saying it about to these award shows

          • SpiralTap

            Oh, mah b.

            Thought you were a Raw-watcher for a second.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Bravo.

  • Bobby

    Holy fuck Undertaker was damned lucky to be so different in the early 90s cause he is just absolutely shitty here with all the choking and punching and nothing else.

  • The Professor

    Didn’t Michael Jordan say that he is not political because republicans buy shoes too?

    • YUP! And judging by his bank account, his observation appears to be 100% accurate.

    • Those gambling debts ain’t gonna pay themselves.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I’m fairly sure they won’t boycott his shoes in protest.

    • Jackson Smith

      He insists he never said it and points to his political donations as proof, but others have said so.

    • RawisStoned

      Jordan was a smart business man

    • Kenny_Reigns

      That’s why I think it’s cool LeBron endorsed Hillary. You know what else he did that was awesome? He didn’t preach condescendingly and has been pretty quiet since then.

  • Robert

    How long was Dibiase in this Rumble? Dude looks exhausted.

    • SpiralTap

      I don’t think he was eliminated until 2016.

    • Which Rumble?

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    Of the 96 minutes played I think Liverpool had possession for 94 minutes. Got shutout too even after bringing the heavy hitters in.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Against my better judgement I am watching last weeks episode of Sherlock. I do like the stuff with Lestrade and Watson talking about how Watson must be used to taking care of a crying baby that was up all hours of the night while Sherlock watched, confused. Edna got a lot of this same shit when she was pregnant and I never got it either.

  • Robert

    Dino Bravo even sucked at getting eliminated from the Rumble.

    • SpiralTap

      HEH

    • LScisco

      Dino Bravo always moved like 1 mph to me. His “match” with Bret to start the 1991 Rumble is so awkward

  • Jackson Smith

    Still with the Iraq stuff. Goddamn, Vince! Mustafa and Adnan in ’92?

  • Bobby

    Retarded OCD shit: I hate how Flair wears his knee pads on his ankles.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    …Sherlock receives a premonition involving an aquarium as he looks at a shrine dedicated to Margarete Thatcher…

    So he has visions now, that’s cool.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      From the 7 Deities?

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Wait, that happened? I do need to rewatch the episode lol.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        When he goes to that house to solve that terrible fake car seat mystery, and he sees the table of Thatcher stuff with the missing bust, he gets a vision of the scene in the aquarium with Lady Who Cares

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          About that car seat mystery: how did he know he had a seizure? It’s not something you can determine by logic

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            It’s all so bad dude, so bad. New episode coming in 90 minutes though, it can’t be any worse (don’t saaaaaaaay anything)

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I noticed it right away and thought it was bullshit. I thought that was the part you guys were upset over and then all the Mary stuff happened…

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          I’m so upset about that episode that I’m still finding new things to harp on a week later lol

          Garbage. Just dreck.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I hated almost all of it.

  • Eric Von Erich

    What were they thinking turning One Man Gang into Akeem?

    • The Professor

      Making fun of dusty

      • Eric Von Erich

        I could see creating a comedy character to make fun of Dusty, but One Man Gang was huge, was decent, and had a great look and character already. Why do that to him?

        • Clearly, you don’t understand the business, pal.

          – VKM

    • Jackson Smith

      I’d love to see Vince try to get that video on TV these days, ewwww

    • maskedcabana

      Wasn’t it a rib on Dusty?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Akeem was, Virgil was, Sapphire was, somehow the Gobbledy Gooker as well and elements of Saba Simba.

    • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

      Boss Man & One Man Gang would have been terrifying as a team. Akeem made them seem like a joke

    • RawisStoned

      A corrupt cop teaming with a gang would have been so fitting too

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Re: Hollywood, it’s amusing to me that the liberals worst enemy is a famous liberal

  • LScisco

    Ha, the Suns are only trailing the Cavs by 1 point in the 4th

  • Robert

    It’s amazing that there’s any oxygen left in the arena as hard as Warrior is sucking wind.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    The Twin Towers could have had a cool back story too. Boss Man meets One Man Gang when Gang is doing a stretch in prison. Boss Man was the corrupt prison guard who meets OMG as an inmate. The Towers form due to mutual hatred for Hulk Hogan and vow to take him down

    • LScisco

      Nah, PAL, he needs a DANCING WHITE AFRICAN as a partner!

      • SpiralTap

        Honestly, this is way more fun.

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    I watched Naito vs. Keiji Mutoh from Wrestle Kingdom 2012 the other day. I wanted to come on here and talk shit about how boring it was but I fell asleep and forgot the match existed. Seriously, that match was terrible. All Mutoh had was Shining Wizards and Dragon Screws. He was like someone on a wrestling game spamming the same two moves over and over.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      new japan was still coming out of it’s dark period in the mid-00s

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Naito wasn’t very good before going to CMLL. He came back an entirely different guy.

      • WWF1987

        He was good before the knee injuries. It took him awhile to readjust when he returned.

  • Bobby

    Sid in dem powder blues. That’s the second one tonight.

  • The Professor

    Speaking of award shows: did we ever get the 2016 slammys?

    • LScisco

      Are you really complaining about missing them?

      • The Professor

        No. just curious.

  • Whatever your political beliefs, we can all agree: Chocolate Milk is great.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Word!

    • Chocolate Almond Milk, EVEN BETTER!

    • Bobby

      Yeah but I feel like such a baby when I walk up to the counter with it.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        I buy Yoo-hoo by the carton with my chest puffed out proudly.

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          Bro those are called bitch tits.

          Pfft.

      It was, until the liberals forced homogenization on us.

    • I don’t love it.

  • I Love You, Man doesn’t get enough love anymore.

    • Mikey

      I love that movie! A lot of those Apatow movies get blended together

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      I rewatched it a few months ago after buying the Blu Ray. It was funnier than I remembered(and I loved it when it first came out) It is insanely funny.

      • I remember trying to figure out what Sydney’s game was, thinking that he was some kind of con artist. Turns out he was just a semi-lonely guy who’s friends kind of moved on.

        The billboard reveals remains one of my favorite scenes in that movie.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          The scene where he asked for money was a great fake out. Rudd’s terrible nicknames still get use from me today. Jobit in particular is genius.

          • Yeah, that’s the part where you’re thinking “oh shit, he’s a conman”.

            But the dialogue immediately after is GREAT:

            Doug: I just wish I could take back that kiss…
            Sydney Fife: Woah!
            [Looks at Peter]
            Doug: …because now I know it was the taste of betrayal.
            Peter Klaven: It wasn’t the taste of betrayal!
            Doug: It was the taste of betrayal.
            Peter Klaven: It wasn’t the ta…
            Doug: It was the taste of betrayal… you fucking whore!
            Peter Klaven: [to Sydney] I can actually explain that.
            Sydney Fife: I would looove to hear that!

    Lactic acid!

  • SpiralTap

    Oh man, the crowd is fucking MOLTEN for the Warrior/Hogan showdown.

    Even people in wheelchairs are on their feet.

      • SpiralTap

  • Bobby

    Hogan was a fucking crybaby here, he was eliminated fair and square.

    • Jackson Smith

      As a cut and dry Hulkamaniac, that was actually the first time I questioned my hero, lol. I was very disappointed when he didn’t apologize on the next Superstars.

    • maskedcabana

      Hogan was really the worst face. Screwing over his friends or crying when he loses.

      • Truly.

      • WWF1987

        And he was a homewrecker..

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      Hulk was my guy, but I thought that was a pretty shitty thing to do

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    I bet Hugh Laurie is one of those guys that’s going to move out of the country because of Trump winning.

    • The Professor

      He should go back to Britain

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      That’s the joke, btw, before I get “duh he’s from England” response. Yes, that’s the joke

      • The Professor

        Oops

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I was confused. I figured you knew, but I didn’t know how to pay it off.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      He’s also British, so maybe he just goes back home?

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        no he should be sent to australia for punishment like in the good old days.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      duh he’s from England.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        What ever I did to deserve you must have been fiercely immoral

  • Robert

    Wait, if Warrior was eliminated, how did Warrior end up with the title shot anyway?

    • Jackson Smith

      1993 was the first year of the stipulation

      • You and your logic have no place here!

    • Jeremy Rinehart

      Warrior was viewed as being the #1 contender by the honorable Jack Tunney

      • WWF1987

        And Hogan wanted to know which force was the strongest in the WWF!

        • Jeremy Rinehart

          He had to know if Hulkamania would live forever

    • RawisStoned

      He was the IC champ. Logical really.

  • Jackson Smith

    Great pop for Hulk getting tossed too. Right down the memory hole on the reedits, IIRC.

    • SpiralTap

      Like I said earlier, when RR90 started on the live stream, I wasn’t looking at my TV, so I heard Skee-a-vone and Ventura’s voices, and I thought “why the fuck are they showing an early 90s WCW PPV?”

    Crazy WWF never did Hogan vs Perfect or Rude feuds.

    • Jeremy Rinehart

    • Hogan vs. Perfect did a round or two on the house shows and drew flies.

      • The Professor

        Didn’t they fight on snme?

    • RawisStoned

      Umm…what?

      • SpiralTap

        Think you two need to switch usernames on this one.

        • RawisStoned

          Nah I would just tend to watch Raw stoned and giggle uncontrollably at the wacky antics of Patterson and Brisco

    • You’re so not Streets Ahead.

      Whatchu watchin’? 2001?

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        I think everyone is watching that right now, yeah? Or did I miss something in all my jabbering about Hugh Laurie?

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          I dunno. I am watching British shit again. I dunno what’s going on.

        • RawisStoned

          Did you see Chance? It’s not as good as House

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            No, I hate foreigners.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I knew it.

  • Jackson Smith

    B-Squared!

  • Bruce Chung

    Brad Pitt with a big face pop.

  • SpiralTap

    IT’S JEFF HARDY

    • maskedcabana

      15 years later and his only weirder.

  • Jackson Smith

    The Rainbow Warrior. Oh, should’ve left that nickname with Hawaii’s college sports teams.

  • I don’t care much for chocolate milk. I had my last taste of white milk at 10 years old, and I drank chocolate for a few years after that, but it’s been at least 20 years since I had any.

    • I don’t drink chocolate milk because I refuse to support the communist-based ideas of the Ontario Milk Board.

      Also I’m lactose intolerant.

  • johntcole

    WWNLive talent Austin Theory really could pass as a John Cena lookalike.

  • Jackson Smith

    Hardys take the rules seriously and fight with each other. They ARE from bumfuck NC, damn. That is dumb.

    • SpiralTap

      Demolition fought each other and they weren’t inbred.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    I really hope this Hardy battle ends with them being so frustrated that they take their shirts off.

  • Decided against DDP yoga because there’s a bunch of weight loss yoga programs included on Amazon Prime video, so I thought I’d give them a chance first. Since they’re already paid for.

  • “I love you, Broseph Goebbels.”

    Well, thanks IMDB for finally telling me what he said during that scene!

  • Jackson Smith

    Least Faarooq got to be in this one.

  • johntcole

    Got into the ROH Atlanta tapings for free as a press member, sorta. It’s actually becoming a hot ticket and is almost sold out.

  • Jackson Smith

    Jeff feeling the effects of some weed he scored outside The Herb on Canal Street in the Quarter, fucks up a simple jump off Matt’s back.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    SHIRTS ARE OFF SHIT IS REAL

  • SpiralTap

    Faarooq loves beating up inbred crackers.

  • Jackson Smith

    WWE Hall of Famer Drew Carey!

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Ugh…One day I will use my PS3 for games again.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    I love that Jeff ties his shirt around his waist like, “Well what if I get cold later though?”

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    That dropkick into Matt’s back is the highlight of this Rumble.

  • SpiralTap

    Love how bitches lose their minds when Jeff takes off his shirt.

    Matt totally kills the screams.

  • Jackson Smith

    The Hardys pissing away a chance to go far in the Rumble to fight and eliminate each other for this Drew Carey spot really do look dumb, lol.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Drew begging them to get back in the ring is great lol

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    This is probably the best use of a celebrity ever. Drew Carrey at Rumble 2001 is pretty much perfect.

    • Jackson Smith

      It really is, classic stuff.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        The only one that comes close is Pete Rose.

    • That marvatar is perfect.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        I really thought it would get more over today than it did, I think the Simpsons nerds were busy being angry at the footballs.

        • FXX had a nice run of Japan-inspired Simpons eps today, but I thought it was criminal they skipped the episode where Homer thinks he’s gonna die from the sushi.

          • Tasty fish, tasty fish … OH NO!

      • The Professor

        agreed

  • SpiralTap

    JR’s preparing to read Drew’s eulogy is the best.

  • P.K.

    Mike Tyson responds to Soulja Boy confirming he will be training Chris Brown for their boxing match and also takes a shot at Floyd Mayweather saying “I’m gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out because I’m not gonna teach him how to run”

    https://youtu.be/gD-rPVJZ8pI

    • Chris Brown is boxing someone?

      • P.K.

        Yup…He’s supposedly fighting Soulja Boy (who is being trained by Floyd Mayweather)on ppv in March..

        This is Soulja Boy.. LMAO

        https://youtu.be/MVmkqeIhwcw

  • Jackson Smith

    “Drew Carey’s a big ol’ porkchop!”

  • SpiralTap

    “What do you think his blood type is, Ragu?”

  • Jackson Smith

    Trying to bribe Kane, LOL

  • Jackson Smith

    “Who the fuck rehired Johnny Polo?”

    • That is how I like to believe that quote was said.

      • Jackson Smith

        Me too, I forget who it was who said it actually was “Johnny Polo,” but it gives me hope Vince really didn’t have any idea how the guy totally reinvented himself and for a brief time became red hot. Was always just Johnny Polo to him, lol.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Prolly still calls X-Pac “Kid” when he sees him as well.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Drew almost falling over himself to get out of the ring hahaha, that was great stuff. Now on to the real meat of the best Rumble of all time

    • You not watching 1992 or 2004.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        1992 is fine but I don’t really care for Flair so it’s nothing special to me. 2004 was pretty good until the guy that won murdered a child.

        • Yeah I try not to think about that when I’m watching it.

          are you going to have a new marvatar for every day of the year?

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            That’s the plan, I’m keeping track too

  • Jackson Smith

    And there goes Drew. Funny, didn’t show up anyone, back to “reality.” Great stuff.

  • While you’re geeking out over old Rumbles, I’ve been geeking out over a Billy Joel concert on AXS.

  • SpiralTap

    I love the hardcore portion of the Rumble.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Was just going to say, I really love how this rumble has defined segments.

  • Jackson Smith

    Raven being sober enough to appear at a New Orleans PPV in 2001 was quite an achievement.

  • Jackson Smith

    Some people hate the bowling ball spot, but it’s hilarious to me. it’s a ball, in the nuts. “It’s funny because it’s true!”

    • Almost as funny as a football in the groin.

      • Jackson Smith

        Precisely, lol

  • Jackson Smith

    “Looks like a hurricane blew through here, more apropos.” Too soon, JR, even if it was 4 years early!

  • SpiralTap

    I forever love OSW Review for pointing out how ridiculously Kane takes bumps.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      What was the bit about the Pedigree again?

      Okay, you you’re gonna take this bump on your face–
      The fuck I am!!

  • maskedcabana

    Saturn looks juiced to the gills.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Three guys to get Kane down, I always liked that they gave him this rumble performance. It was a cool thing to do for a dude that was always crazy reliable but knew was never really going to sniff a real main event ever again.

    • Jackson Smith

      Speaking of Piper’s best day in wrestling ever being the ’92 Rumble, is the 2001 Rumble Kane’s best day ever? Just might be.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        As far as getting to look awesome? Yeah it’s gotta be. He runs this whole rumble.

        • Jackson Smith

          Yeah.

  • Bobby

    This Rumble must have occurred after Whose Line ran its course as they’re plugging the after-the-fact live performances. That was another late 90s-early 00s favorite of mine.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      It looks like both Whose Line and his regular show on ABC were both running during this. I think he really just liked wrestling.

      • I enjoyed the episodes of The Drew Carey Show where the whole episode was a 30-minute “Guess What’s Wrong With This Picture” puzzle.

  • Jackson Smith

    JR gets to pronounce “Grandmaster Sexay,” that’s always lovely.

    • RedStorm

      He always emphasizes the “Ay” part.

  • SpiralTap

    Fucking LOVE Blackman’s elimination.

  • Bones

    Well that was fun today. Steelers kicked ass and went to the Pens game for the first time and they kicked ass as well.

    • Enzo Beckham punched a wall.

      • Bones

        Did he break a hand like a waste of $100 million Kevin Brown?

        • Might as well have because he couldn’t catch shit today.

          • Bones

            I didn’t see that game, it looks like the Packers pushed their shit in.

          • Blown red zone opportunities early for New York, and then Rodgers ended the first half with a “sorry, guys, it’s just not your day” Hail Mary.

  • Jackson Smith

    Lawler’s son, then Lawler’s cousin!

  • SpiralTap

    THE HONKY DONKEY MAN CAMEO

    THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT IN RUMBLE HISTORY

    SING IT, KING

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “Hollywood is crawling w/ foreigners, so if you kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football & mixed martial arts”

    ummmmmmmmmmmmmm

    • RedStorm

      That..that’s..what now?

      • Napoleon Blownapart
        • RedStorm

          The replies are either “she’s my hero” or “what an idiot MMA was created by foreigners”. I love when celebrities are stupid and let everyone know how stupid they are.

    • Bones

      I don’t think she knows a lot about MMA

    • LScisco

      There are lots of foreigners in MMA…..

    • Well, we’re not just gonna toss out the foreigners who beat the shit out of each other for our amusement now are we?

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      “AY SOUNDS GOOD! WHERE’S MY MOONEY?! I’LL TAKE HALF! THREE PEOPLE DIED MAKING THIS WATCH!”

  • Jackson Smith

    No way Honky ever needs a reminder on the words of “Cool, Cocky, Bad.”

  • cabspaintedyellow

    So I’m watching the Golden Globes, and they showed a commercial for their Taken adaptation.

    Turns out, it’s not about different members of his family getting kidnapped each week, or even about tracking down one stolen family member per season.

    It’s the dude getting recruited by special ops after foiling a terror attack on a bus, and rescuing other people’s stolen family members.

    At the very least, it makes more sense as a TV series than the other premise, and it looks like it’s supposed to be a prequel to the movie. I still don’t expect it to do any kind of numbers.

  • SpiralTap

    lmao Lawler

  • Jackson Smith

    That was a picture perfect guitar shot too. BLAM.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    The crazy thing is that Honky is presented as a complete throwback here and FOUR YEARS earlier he was on Raw as a legit character trying to find his protégé

    Also fucking LOL at Kane with the guitar, classic

  • LScisco

    So are the Academy Awards shaping up as a clash between Manchester by the Sea and La La Land?

    • Jackson Smith

      Did Manchester win BP – Drama?

      • LScisco

        Not yet but it’s gotten the acting awards and such La La Land did

  • Jackson Smith

    SAINTS NEED KANE sign. 2017, that’s still true. Awwwww…

  • Bobby

    I’m at Goodfather entering. How far behind/ahead am I? I lost track of time and have been drinking and started late and tried to fast forward to compensate.

    • SpiralTap

      That’s where I am.

  • LScisco

    Just saw that Fathom Events is gonna show the Godfather in theatres in June. That’s awesome.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I want to jump in on this rumble bullshit but it’s lead to an internal struggle. I got internal dead lock.

  • Jackson Smith

    When Moonlight wins Best Picture – Drama and nothing else, it’s hard to turn back the “only because of #OscarsSoWhite” comments.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      Viola Davis won Best Supporting Actress.

      • cabspaintedyellow

        Also, to be perfectly fair, the only award Moonlight should have won that it didn’t was Best Screenplay. Every other award competing with Moonlight, I feel like the right movie won.

        • Jackson Smith

          Still, if they pull that at the Oscars nobody’s gonna be happy – liberals will call it a token and conservatives will scoff that it’s obviously just because it’s a “black film.”

          • cabspaintedyellow

            Those types will never be happy, because they keep moving the goalposts.

            “Oh, the only black movies that have won BP this decade won because Brad Pitt was a producer!”

            “Oh, well Viola only won because they campaigned her supporting, because they didn’t think she was good enough to win against the white women in lead!”

            “Oh, well La La Land only won awards because its tribute to jazz co-opted black culture!”

            The arguments probably won’t be so incrementally ludicrous, but I could imagine something along these lines, no matter what happens.

    • The Professor

      i wouldn’t be surprised if hidden figures gets some buzz

  • Bones

    All these wild card games were shitkickings.

    NFL better book a better Divisional round.

    • You’re getting at least one shit-kicking next weekend.

      • The Professor

        there are 3 matchups where I have no clue on the winner and the other oneis the LOLpatriotswin

        • If Atlanta would send Seattle home, that’d be really cool of them.

      • Bones

        What’s New England going to open at? 14-16?

        • They opened at -16.

          • Bones

            Jesus you barely see that in the regular season let along the divisional round

          • Dome team. From Texas. On the road. In Foxboro. Against Bradychick. In January.

            Granted these things are never certain, but there’s a LOT of ingredients for Patriots 42, Texans 10 there.

          • The Professor

            also you have brock as qb

    • RedStorm

      Atlanta 30 Seattle 20
      Pitt 28 KC 24
      Houston 24 NE 21
      Dallas ? GB ?

      • Bones

        Wait…

        • RedStorm

          I said it before I’ll say it again. Brady throws a pick 6 and Slater fumbles a kickoff. Same recipe for the Jets game in 2010.

          • Bones

            Ehhhh I can’t see it with this one

          • RedStorm

            I respect that. I feel like Brady is due for a trip and Belicheck is going to try and be too cute with O’Brien.

  • maskedcabana

    Short night for Tazz.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Did it get super duper quiet there for everyone else or are my ears failing as I succumb to this Sherlock ulcer?

  • Bobby

    My stream did a weird thing where it went black for a second, then no commentary and audio appeared out of sync, then went back to right after Tazz was eliminated.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Mine farted as well, though a bit differently. The Network is having a good night apparently lol

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Kane’s sell of Albert’s big boot was bad ass, he looked like he got shot with a cannon

  • Jackson Smith

    Oh no, Road Dogg’s unfortunate massive drug addict with K-Kwik run!

  • maskedcabana

    Surprising good amount of people still with the company in the ring right now.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      …Jesus I just realized this is 16 years ago now

      This Rumble match is going to have it’s drivers license soon. Fuuuuuck

  • RedStorm

    Look I’m by no means a “Trump supporter” but can these celebrities be any more tone deaf? The election’s over. Trump won. You campaigned against him, he won. You petitioned the electors, he won. This whining and complaining is the attitude that people were sick of. The excuse for the complaining of 20-somethings is they were never told no, and they’re part of the complain until you get your way generation. What the hell is the excuse for these old ass celebrities?

    • Jackson Smith

      It was the same during Bush and we still got 8 years of Obama afterward, however celebrities chose to act at awards shows. It’s not important.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      No one is ready to face the real question which isn’t “How did he win?” but “How did we lose to him?”

      What is so broken in the party that people could pick that over what we’re saying? It’s not a fun thing to face. Hollywood I don’t think is ever going to do it.

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        Because they weren’t “saying” anything. She was so sure it was her turn that she forgot to run a campaign

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Why do people care so much about what celebrities have to say about politics?

      • Jackson Smith

        Seriously. And to feed into the “he won solely because of mean ol’ liberals talking down to people” talking point, ugh.

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

          If those people were shifted the other way by, like, a welcoming message…he does not win so…

          • Jackson Smith

            We have to throw down the memory hole a ton of ugly Trump behavior and ugly behavior by some of his supporters to support the idea that poor ol’ Trump voters were just scared about their jobs and being ignored. That is bogus and the “liberal” media forcefeeding it to us because they’re scared of losing access is pathetic.

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            I’m not talking about his supporters. I’m talking about that vital center group of people that can be swayed either way. We told them if they dared consider the other side they were retards

          • Jackson Smith

            And conservatives told them they were amoral scumbags to ever consider voting for Satan in a pantsuit. So? The only difference is they won so that gets forgotten about.

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            They offered the people something more than that. Trump said a lot of insane things, and those insane things were able to appeal to the right people.

            We offered nothing. I’m sorry but this one is always going to go down to the stupidity of the DNC not some genius plot hatched by Donald Trump that was impossible to defeat. We fucked this up

          • The Professor

            If it was any other candidate other than hillary, then they would have won

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            I don’t know that’s certain but the odds are definitely in the 99+ percent range lol

          • There’s more than a bit of truth to this. Granted, the GOP could probably have picked Bernie apart to a degree, but the “it’s MY turn” candidate is not going to generate a lot of goodwill.

          • The bench wasn’t all that deep and most of the people in the Dem primary wouldn’t have excited anyone. Bernie MAYBE could have won, but I don’t think that’s a sure thing either.

          • Hey! I was 100% all-in with Governor O’Malley, thank you very much!

          • Aaron

            Even O’Malley wasn’t all in.

          • I half-joke when I say him getting his shit pushed in in the primaries was a good thing because ain’t none of the blood of the Democrats in this election is on his hands now.

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            Biden.

          • The Professor

            True their bench is week but a lot of dems didn’t run because they knew hillary would win and would look bad to prevent the first female president.

          • I think Bernie would have won easily. His performance at the debates would have been a little rougher and Trump would have probably spent a lot of time being a dick, but he would have won.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Any other candidate than Hillary wouldn’t have acted like they deserved to win and anyone who didn’t want to vote for them was “deplorable.”

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            That she actually used that fucking word is deserving of a first ballot entry into the Idiotic Blunder HoF.

            But sure, the campaign was totally welcoming and stuff

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Also insulting former Bernie supporters wasn’t smart…

          • Aaron

            As ridiculous as it is, doing the county fairs and shooting rifles actually matters.

          • The Professor

            plus go to michigan and wisconsin; she didn’t even go to wisconsin once

          • Jackson Smith

            Oh sure, they offered the Rust Belt factories that will never reopen and ugliness to those that appeals to, to name a couple things. What Hillary could’ve said to appeal to the people who fell for – and yes, “fell for” is the appropriate language, due to the lunacy of the premise – the idea that Donald Trump is going to bring steel mills back to Pennsylvania and auto plants back to Michigan is beyond me.

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Because it sounds nice. Obama ran on a platform of getting rid of jails (didn’t) ending bombing (more drones) and inclusion (more deportations than anyone)

            And guess what, we all voted for him because GODDAMN that shit *sounds* nice!

          • Jackson Smith

            To be clear, I backed Bernie and in a year where populism was the appealing tactic of the year, it would’ve been a Hell of a lot better to run OUR OWN populist who appeals to those white working class voters, I’m no huge fan of Hillary either. I just don’t know how to sway people who think “well, he’s a billionaire and I saw him on the TV for 30 years for being a big businessman, so MAYBE he can make deals to somehow make that happen?” is a viable voting reason.

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            Her lack of authenticity and charisma were always here biggest issues. Even more so than the email scandal.

          • Aaron

            The 1990s-style HRC campaign didn’t understand that you can support the rights of minorities *and* work to improve the lot of people deserted by globalization.

          • Bones

            Sure those things aren’t coming back to PA, but what solutions did Hillary offer up?

          • Aaron

            Blah blah retraining, the same things I had to sell people who were laid off and they didn’t want. It’s a tough go.

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            It wouldn’t have mattered. the election wasn’t really about policies anyway.

          • Aaron

            DING DING DING

          • Kenny_Reigns

            It was about name calling and Trump is better at that. Hillary did a ton of name calling and offered nothing substantial, but Trump is better at that game.

          • Aaron

            He also mocked the right people.

          • Hillary went crazy with the name calling, to the point where she went with the “basket of deplorables” line and even mentioned Bernie supporters “living in their parents’ basement” (taken out of context which the media jumped all over).

            Trump said A LOT of awful shit and insulted A LOT of people, and still does. But he didn’t insult any of Hillary’s supporters or those that could potentially jump to his side.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Hillary was supposed to take the high road. Everyone knew what Trump was. Crazy guy said something awful? *shrug* Smart, classy woman said something awful? That sticks…

          • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

            She forgot to campaign at all. Her entire “platform” was “it’s her turn”.

            It wasn’t.

          • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

            Forgotten about? Nobody has shut up about it since it happened

          • Won’t somebody think of the poor coal, steel, and milkman jobs???

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I like you, but no, this is condescending and dense. I grew up in an area literally destroyed by the loss of manufacturing jobs. There has been literally nothing to replace them. But Hillary and stupid, overly priviledged liberals were saying the economy was great and Trump was the only one even paying lip service to people who live in economically destroyed areas.

          • Hillary offered alternatives, she was just REALLY bad at spelling them out.

            Hillary: “Tough shit, coal ain’t coming back, but look at these nice alternatives!”
            People: “Uh… thanks?”

          • Kenny_Reigns

            No, she didn’t. All she said, when she actually campaigned and that was almost never, was, “check out my website for policies.”

            And maybe try to figure out a way to do something about the manufacturing jobs when your fucking husband lost them all with NAFTA?

          • Like I said, REALLY bad at spelling them out. Ain’t nobody got time for websites.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Exactly. Every time she said that, I would get so angry. She was so much smarter than him and never used that to her advantage.

          • The worst parts of the debate: “if you got to my website…”

            STOP WITH THE WEBSITE!!!

          • Kenny_Reigns

            YES!!!

            That’s what shames me the most.

            “Yeah.”

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Didn’t matter. At least Trump said something about it.

          • Aaron

            It was a feelings election. I’m still ashamed and embarrassed.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            It was a very ugly feelings election all about hate and blaming. First time ever in our history…

          • Ehh, I’d argue 1860 was a “hate and blaming” election too.

            Now, granted, I hope the next four years turn out a bit better than that, but still.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            1860 wasn’t this bad. They at least had some ideas and very real concerns about the economy they directly addressed.

          • Aaron

            WELLLLLLLL

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Meaning something less than a general national understanding that if you weren’t voting for Hillary you were both a retarded person and probably dangerous to the country

        • cabspaintedyellow

          People arguing that Trump won because voters didn’t like being condescended to by liberals are just as guilty as the celebrities, because it presumes to know why Trump voters voted the way they did, and that their minds could be changed with a “Hey, but how was your day, really?”

          • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

            All kinds of people presume to know why others voted for Trump. It usually involves assumptions about racism, fascism. Etc etc

        • And even if they were being talked down to, it was basically saying “this man is a con artist and a liar, and he will screw you like he’s SCREWED EVERYONE!”

          And behold, he’s already reneged on EVERY promise he’s made and he hasn’t been sworn in yet. Drain the swamp? Nah, let’s put the alligators in charge. Lock her up? Eh, it was fun to hear people chant that. Mexico is paying for wall? You’ll pay for it instead and maybe Mexico will pay us back!

          • Jackson Smith

            Indeed. And I just read a WaPo article where they interviewed Trump voters who just pull a “yeah, so?” in response to the Russia news. I REALLY don’t think people who think this way were just horribly offended by liberals being snooty – they were on board the Trump train for many more reasons than just that.

          • He’s a celebrity that told them what they wanted to hear. That’s it. Which makes it all the more hilarious when people like that complain about “celebrities being political”.

          • Jackson Smith

            But we could’ve swayed them by being nicer, I mean…if you’re going to fall for Donald Trump’s promises to turn the manufacturing base of America back to 1955, well. Maybe Bernie could’ve reached them but I don’t know. I know he came out of nowhere to beat Hillary in Michigan when polls had him down 20 points ON ELECTION DAY, lol, which turned out to be a bad warning.

          • Aaron

            Mr. Trump provided a scapegoat and a chance for revenge. When people feel powerless, they find ways to lash out.

          • A scapegoat? Now where have I heard that from dictators before?

          • Aaron

            Every single time. What’s sad is I am convinced Mr. Trump just wants to make some speeches and some money. All the actual running the Executive Branch isn’t his thing.

          • When one of his kids said all Trump wants to do is hold rallies I could do nothing but shake my head.

          • Marvtin Prince – #8

            Oh dear lol

      • RedStorm

        Because people are dumb enough to listen to them and form their political views based off what they say. I never understood why people cared who a celebrity or musician voted for. Just entertain people and shut up. That’s why you’re here.

      I think Meryl Streep was on something.

        Also, it’s denial. She was in denial.

      • LScisco

        Evidently all foreigners are illegal immigrants to her. Oh well, not to soon to be doing a “dumb things said in 2017” list (and I’m sure we’ll have a ton by the end of the year from notable people).

    • cabspaintedyellow

      It really bugs me, because I see it get championed in the media as some triumphant moment, when I can’t help but cringe every time something like this happens.

      Like, this is why people hate us, Meryl, and why we’re not going to win any new converts. Especially when major figures for the other side don’t bitch or moan nearly to this degree.

    C’mon, New Orleans, that face pop for a Big Show Rumble run directly led to the next 5 years of Big Show main event pushes, you know it did.

  • Aaaaaaaah. My WrestleMania Top Ten columns have been compiled into one file! Just needs some copy editing, some formatting and maybe a new entry here and there and I’ll be ready for the big time!

  • Bobby

    Rock-Show shenanigans in two straight Rumbles.

    Fuck, I was just never a fan of Show. I kinda wish he just stayed in WCW until it folded.

    • LScisco

      The problem with someone like Big Show is that he’s good for a short run but it’s just not believable that tons of people will beat him, which would inevitable happen as he moved down the card.

      • And A Diddly New Year

  • Facts

    Speaking of Royal Rumble 01 I never cared for the HHH vs Angle WWF Title match. They always had mediocre matches together.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      They’re two people who should have had chemistry, but could never get above three snowflakes, at best.

      When HHH came back all roided up and inflated, and then had the post-Rumble program, it was even rougher.

      • The Professor

        when angle was “with” stephanie, HHH should have been whipping his ass like a government mule (to quote jr).

        • Night

          He was probably afraid of angering Kurt so he’d shoot on him!

        • cabspaintedyellow

          What is it with HHH and doing a normal match during a blood feud?

          Angle, Reigns. Hell, his match with Orton at WM25 should have been a whacked out, blood-soaked brawl, but they put in that asinine stipulation about how a DQ would cause Hunter to lose the title, essentially doing the opposite of infusing drama into the match by instead letting everyone know there would be no wild brawl.

    • Night

      I never realized that but it’s true. It’s really odd because Angle was so versatile. He could have classics with anyone.

      I remember that Angle vs hhh match to be very long.

  • cabspaintedyellow

    “Home Alone is the story of my life. I was Macaulay and the wrestling biz was The old man with a shovel.”

    That makes no fucking sense, Virgil.

    • Jackson Smith

      ….the wrestling business was your salvation when a tiny Italian robber was about to bite off your fingers?

      • cabspaintedyellow

        The only possible way the analogy can work is if he’s talking about how he felt like Macaulay did at the start of the movie, that he was scared of the old man due to misconceptions.

        But even then, what does any of that have to do with how Virgil feels about the business now?

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      Virgil taught the wrestling business how to love its children again?

  • The Professor

    The one thing that bugs me about a lot of these politicians is when they say “college for everyone.”

    A lot of my students are not college material. They will never write a decent essay. They will never use trigonometry or calculus. A lot of them come from blue collar families and just want a decent wage as a plumber, electrician, fireman or factory worker. Trump appealed to a lot of those people.

    • cabspaintedyellow
    • LScisco

      Yeah, same. This is a growing problem in our economy, though, because low skilled jobs and such will be turned over to robotics. I don’t know how lots of these kids will make a living in the future.

      • Jackson Smith

        But don’t TELL them that or else they’ll be insulted.

        First and foremost, people in many parts of this country will need to move.

        • LScisco

          Move where?

          • Aaron

            That’s the hard part. Mobility is going to be a prerequisite. If the work is in the Dakotas, off you go.

      • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

        Bingo, you can sell them a line of shit but those jobs aren’t coming back. They’d have a better chance if they learned to make lattes.

        • chicagodem79

          Until the robots learn how to make lattes….

        • Aaron

          There also needs to be some serious getting over what a “real job” is. Hospitals could use some strong men in nursing and other support positions.

          • I remember thinking about being a doctor once. Then I dated a few and said “nevermind”.

          • Aaron

            They’re crazy.

    • Aaron

      Trade school is also college.

      • The Professor

        I wish we played up trade school more. I wish we had autoshop and metalshop in school.
        When I first started teaching, we had cooking and sewing. Now those kids take an extra math or english class.

        • The Professor

          or computers

          • In hindsight, I should’ve nutted up and taken some of the more hands-on classes our high school offered. Especially cosmetology. Hair grows, even in a shitty economy.

          • The Professor

            I took cooking. Taught me some of the basics.
            Same with computers.

          • Night

            This is basic home economics!!!

          • Aaron

            YOU CAN’T SEW ME!

          • No, see, that doesn’t work, because we’re trying to get people to DO jobs.

        • Aaron

          You don’t? Weird. We’ve got a cooperative in the county where kids can go to vocational school half the day.

          • The Professor

            nclb and common core basically got rid of those.

          • Aaron

            Oh good. Why would we need people to fix plumbing? Everyone can be a banker.

          • chicagodem79

            Seriously, I don’t even want to get started on the disincentives for smart people to go into fields that aren’t finance related…..

          • Aaron

            Excellent. I want our nation’s best minds figuring out new ways to worm out of paying taxes.

          • chicagodem79

            Or creating financial instruments that no one else understands trading the wealth of millions of hard working people on nothing more than elaborate bets.

          • Aaron

            Oh and let’s turn over the only retirement savings tens of millions of Americans have to said instruments.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            The hot new thing in engineering is to get all of us to work for finance firms to figure out complex math to screw people out of money and write programs to implement it. It even has a cute name, “financial engineering.”

    • Jackson Smith

      “Free college for everyone” is not “everyone should go to college.” It’s opening the possibility for all if they want to.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      the thing with all the focus on “millenials” in the election: most of those profiled had or are working on a 4 year degree,which is the case for very few 18-30 year olds.

    • Night

      Maybe it’s more that the opportunity for college should be for everyone. Whether you go or not, it’s up to you.

      • LScisco

        Depends on how we define that opportunity. I think you need to show that you have some skill/gumption to do college work to get any type of guaranteed assistance. Too many people are going to college without the necessary skills and are just wasting their time + federal financial assistance.

        • Night

          Sure. But if you have the mind for it but can’t because of personal circumstances, then college should be an opportunity.

          I took my university time VERY seriously and hated being around assholes who took their opportunity for granted.

          • LScisco

            I would agree with that. For those kids who are capable but can’t afford it, then I say give them the $$$. I also think any “college for all’ should really encourage people to do jobs that are in demand and as much as I hate to say this as a history major, we should sort of prioritize STEM that way versus liberal arts.

          • Aaron

            The idea of free community college was a decent one. There are plenty of trade certificates and two-year degrees like radiology. My mother got one after she had me (pink collar household here).

          • Aaron

            Nerd.

      • Jackson Smith

        Exactly. I also missed where Trump said much about that at all. Must’ve been hidden among all the blaming Mexicans talk that we’ve all now forgotten about and appealed to absolutely nobody, apparently.

      • Aaron

        Offering incentives based on major or aptitude is a good idea.

        • This is part of what I hate about our current setup: regardless of what you major in, you have to take a lot of classes that have nothing to do with it. Now, I get that you want people to have a more well-rounded education, but I’m also being charged the same rate for shit like geology that I’m being charged for what I need.

          • Aaron

            Colleges were set up as finishing schools for the well-off. We never changed that. A year or so total of distribution and such would be okay, as 18 year-old kids have no idea what they want to do by and large. Cut off a year.

    “You see how ruthless Mary is. Which is great”

    You and me have very different definitions of great Mary.

  • Jackson Smith

    Austin winning by chopping down the monster with repeated head shots from a chair is great.

      It’s a great little hint at how he’s going to win the Mania match.

        You, sir, have blown my mind.

        • Marvtin Prince – #8

        • chicagodem79

          It’s funny, it’s pretty obvious on hindsight, but at the time, you had no idea, it was awesome.

      • Jackson Smith

        Very true

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    I don’t like how the actress playing Mary keeps talking about focusing on the rest of the series. YOURE GONE LEAVE.

  • cabspaintedyellow

    Holy shit, Mass Effect: Andromeda comes out in MARCH?! How the hell did that sneak up on me?

    Okay, sure, the ending to ME3 was hot frothing garbage, but the individual character stories meant so much more to me than the overarching Reapers plot, and those smaller stories all got satisfying payoffs in my playthrough, so as long as Andromeda has moments like those, I don’t care about how it ends.

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      You can preorder on Amazon for $48 right now. Love Mass Effect.

    • Bones

      Didn’t they say Andromeda will have nothing to do with any of the previous 3?

      • cabspaintedyellow

        Absolutely nothing. Takes place 600 years in the future. Of course, Asari live for well over a thousand years, but this is in an entirely different galaxy. Which makes me wonder, did the Reapers only have jurisdiction over the Milky Way? Do they just skip over Andromeda and everywhere else?

        • Bones

          If I recall everywhere in the last one was in the Milky Way right?

          I really did like the Mass Effect games.

          • cabspaintedyellow

            Yup, the last ones were Milky Way.

          • Bones

            I’m glad they aren’t playing off the previous three. It should be good.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    I fucking hate this behind the scenes special, they’re just talking about how fun it was to film all the very worst scenes lol

    • Night

      I liked the Mary of the Robert Downey Jr movies. She knew her place.

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Idea: Start of episode 2 Sherlock is in a room with a bunch of shady government types and they show him a video how they changed the footage and Mary got shot by a sniper on S3:E1

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Idea: Previous episode(besides Mary exiting) was a practical joke and the real episode is coming.

      • Marvtin Prince – #8

        There is a theory going around that the whole episode is actually Sherlock telling the police his version of the events and faked Mary’s death in the story to protect her and John and the baby

        Fucking kill me if that’s true, nevermind this ulcer will explode and my pores will leak the dark red blood you only get in a liver stabbing

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Oh deary making the entire episode a “dream sequence” would be icing on the cake.

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    The fight between the Sherlock and the assassin was actually filmed really well, water faucet aside. Also putting aside Sherlock versus master Assassin.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Internet….Make up my mind!

    Continue BioShock 2, start Uncharted 2 or fiddle about with Rumble Roses?

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Uncharted 2.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      Bioshock 2. It’s better than its reputation.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s a fine game. It’s just where I am I gotta go Big Daddy hunting and that’s really stressful. Plus watching the girl while she harvests Eve is a chore. Gotta be on a swivel.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Bioshock 2 is a bust. Hell, I thought the first one was overrated.

      Sweet.

    • Marvtin Prince – #8

      I’m sticking with Lady Who Cares

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        I liked the psychology behind her name. I have never read the story Gattis referenced.

  • cabspaintedyellow

    One last Virgil for the road…

    “I’ll be live tweeting the ppv from an Olive Garden parking lot definitely using someone else’s wi fi like a certified G #WWERoadblock”

  • Marvtin Prince – #8

    Ok, be back in 90 minutes to be either really happy or in a mood more foul than Art’s general appearance

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      Same. The quality of the episode won’t have any bearing on the number of words we write. It will dictate if they’re happy words though.

  • jobber123

    My DVR actually taped ROH tv this week! It’s been preempted by different shit for a couple months in a row now, and I think they changed time slots and my dvr didn;t know for awhile.

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    “I’m really pleased Mary left”

    ME TOO!

    • I read this as “I’m really pleased Marv left” and I began to wonder how fucking meta this show was.

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        I’m even more pleased at him leaving.

  • cabspaintedyellow

    “Ah, excuse me, neighbor. I couldn’t help but notice you picked pretty much all of my flowers.”
    “Can’t make a float without flowers!”
    “Oh, sure enough, but…did you have to salt the earth so nothing would ever grow again?”
    “Hehehe…yeah.”

    • Aaron

      I invented a program that downloads porn off the internet one million times faster.

      • cabspaintedyellow

        “Does anybody need that much porno?”
        “Ohhh, one million times.”

        • Aaron

          Is he killing that guitar, daddy?

          Yes, son.

  • jobber123

    So is it weird every time I watch BJ Whitmer wrestle I feel kind of guilty. I just picture him sleeping in his car, with that broken neck, making crappy towns for awful money doing crazy bumps and shit.

    • Aaron

      Also he’s boring.

      • jobber123

        He’s got Kevin Sullivan managing him now and he spikes people!

        • jobber123

          Still just a jobber though.

          • Aaron

            At least now there will be better promos. He’s just too vanilla.

          • jobber123

            Way better promos because from what I saw Sullivan did all the talking.

    • cabspaintedyellow

      Unlike music or trying to be an actor, or even being a stand-up comedian, pro wrestling is the one dream you can have that will actually hate you right back if you don’t make it.

      • jobber123

        I just feel kind of heartbroken for a guy in a way who gave 20 years and really kind of toiled hard doing a super dangerous job that had to physically take a serious toll.

        • cabspaintedyellow

          Oh, I absolutely feel heartbroken for the guys who don’t make it in the business. Hell, I feel heartbroken for a lot of the guys that do, because you have to reach an insane Cena level of success to actually be able to walk away from it without continuing to work well past the point your body can take it.

          Even comfortably successful guys who saved money, like Tito Santana, still do spot shows and signings.

          • jobber123

            Ricky Morton still wrestles a full time indy schedule!

  • jobber123

    Am I crazy or are the Briscoes super underrated now? It seems like they never really come up in any conversations these days. Jay is putting on a show in this match.

    • Night

      I think people just hate them based on their views that they ignore them.

  • Night

    I think there are too many crossface based finishers nowadays.

    • Aaron

      What hath thou wrought, Mister Backlund?

    • Gargano Escape
      Asuka Lock

      That’s all I got.

  • jobber123

    Jay Lethal doing ads for a hosptial bed maker that sponsors the show is hysterical. Also one of the best parts of this show is they do a few breaks of the old WWF style house show listings Hayes voiced over on the syndies that is pretty throwback and cool.

    • Jackson Smith

      The Hospital Alert ads make ROH look sooooooo indieriffic, lol.

      • jobber123

        Every time I start the show I think for a second I accidentally taped a infomerical.

    • Aaron

      He moved on from the pain relieving knee brace?

      • Kenny_Reigns

        He does both now! It’s…um…it’s something.

        • Aaron

          Is Jay Lethal dying?

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Legit lol

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I liked when Mandy Leon did the house show break things. She’s purdy.

  • Jackson Smith

    Honestly the only part of Streep’s speech I disliked was the football/MMA line, because that’s the giant opening Fox and the rest will walk straight through in the morning to continue their “snobbery” rhetoric. And then they’ll go right to extolling the virtue of Real Americans Living in Real America as though that insults and looks down on no one.

    • Aaron

      I’m from a town of 950 people in the middle of the country and have never hunted in my life. I’m not religious and was raised as such. I’m pretty sure I’m not what they mean.

      On the other hand, church dinners are delicious, bonfires are fun and beer is better from a can.

      • chicagodem79

        I got some leftovers from my mom’s church dinner tonight! Those old ladies cook their asses off lol.

        • Aaron

          You can’t go wrong! My town has the Parish chicken dinner in July and the UCC church does the sausage dinner in November. I like the chicken dinner better because there’s beer and bingo.

      • Jackson Smith

        That type of shit just infuriates me and ever since the talking point of Trump’s election about liberals looking down on people, it just does so more. You know what I feel insulted by? “Real America.” “Real Americans.” “New York Values.” You remember that. Republicans cannot get ENOUGH of letting us know they represent “REAL Americans.” What the fuck is that if not looking down on people for not having the right “values?” That’s that horrible “elitism” right there, only pointed in the opposite direction. Plenty of conservatives just looooove looking down on and insulting those who don’t agree with them, but since their guy won, we’re all gonna pretend it’s some disease only one group of people have? Fuck that.

        Just…infuriating, lol.

        • chicagodem79

          Well, unfortunately we seem to be at a point where the two “sides” have irreconcilable differences so it will take a major catastrophe of some sort to get people to realize, they’re not that different from each other and to stop the nonsense. I just fear what the catastrophe will be…

          • We’re gonna have to rate it on a 9/11 Scale like we use the Muta Scale.

          • Aaron

            There’s still a squishy middle. This was just a nasty fight between two people most of the country despises. Mr. Trump doesn’t really have a mandate.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            If anyone likeable was in this election, they would have waltzed to the White House…through the RNC, anyway.

          • Jackson Smith

            If only we could’ve run Obama again.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Or Biden! His biggest weakness is saying stupid stuff, but he would have run against Trump. It was literally a perfect situation!

          • Jackson Smith

            Biden’s gonna regret not running every day until he dies.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Me too!

          • Jackson Smith

            Likable Joe Biden who takes the Amtrak to the Senate every day and appeals hugely to blue collar whites, nooooooooooo…wouldn’t have wanted THAT guy.

          • Jackson Smith

            Lord, a 9/11 during Trump’s term….please God no, A) because 9/11s are horrible acts of mass murder and B) I fear what Trump’s response would’ve been to 9/11 and C) it becoming near illegal to criticize Trump during his 90% approval rating phase.

          • chicagodem79

            Who the hell knows, maybe that’s really his end game…

            Ok, I’m turning off my conspiracy theory part of my brain lol.

          • B: Probably similar to George W. Bush, an overwhelming sense of “ah, shit, I thought this was gonna be fun and it’s not fun anymore”.

          • chicagodem79

            And if he didn’t name a cabinet full of insane people, I’d be ok with that, but over half the people in his cabinet, I wouldn’t want anywhere near power if a catastrophe hits.

          • This is your reminder Dick Cheney was a rogue pretzel away from The Button.

          • Aaron

            I miss Cheney. Pence is all Cheney’s crummy tendencies with a super lame religious conservative slant.

          • Aaron

            If the Democratic Party doesn’t brutalize this group, there’s no hope.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            You’re more optimistic than me…

          • Aaron

            It’s the boards of Exxon and Goldman Sachs. I really think the people who are so happy Mr. Trump won will be less happy when their benefits are slashed.

          • Jackson Smith

            My best friend voted for Trump. I called out the “drain the swamp” garbage when he started appointing Exxon and Goldman Sachs execs for everything and what was his response, after months of telling me how Trump would shake things up and be beholden to no one and blah blah blah?

            “Well, now he has to be pragmatic…”

            I wanted to puke like Warrior after getting cursed by Papa Shango, lol.

          • Aaron

            So you want the non-politician to be political?

            The best thing the Democratic Party can do in the short term is blast this guy on his every lie.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Yeah. That’s going to be quite the dumpster fire. The other great thing is most people are in favor of the expanded Medicare options and Trump wants to defund that quickly.

        • Aaron

          Real America is code, just like Heartland, New York, etc.

          • Jackson Smith

            Of course it is. And it’s insulting and it’s snobbery and it looks down on people, but Trump won so we’re just gonna ignore it? So gross.

        • jobber123

          Everyone loves looking down on people and insulting anyone that disagrees with them though. Think about how mad people were over the six star thing.

    • RudoWakening

      The sooner everyone realizes that ALL Americans, no matter where they dwell, are terrible, the happier everyone will be.

      • Aaron

        Quiet, commie.

        See I get to say that because I’m in Real America and you’re in Caliqueero.

        • RudoWakening

          The People’s Gaypublic of Drugafornia*

  • Bones

    Right up to the Clash before the Chi Town Rumble.

    I think that Clash sucks copious amounts of ass and I can’t do that tonight.

    • Aaron

      That card was depressing outside of JYD’s Dixieland band.

      • Bones

        The St. Valentine’s Massacre? I think it sucked, not 100% sure.

        • Aaron

          Wasn’t it the Superdome show that was before Chi Town Rumble?

          • Bones

            I think it was in Cleveland

          • Aaron

            Yeah, it was the previous Clash. Why on Earth would they put Tenryu in a main event six man?

          • Bones

            They made a big deal about him leading up, but no one knew who the hell he was

          • Aaron

            That move doesn’t work when you can’t get him to wrestle a few times on TV.

      • jobber123

        One of my favorite entrances of all time.

  • So apparently we’re still getting a third Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes movie and a third Shanghai movie with Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson.

    • Speaking of people who’ve put in decades of service into dangerous, body-destroying jobs, HOW THE FUCK IS JACKIE CHAN STILL MOBILE?

      • Ancient Chinese secret.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          He soaks in Calgon?

      • RudoWakening

        Jackie Chan is the baddest ass motherfucker walking today.

      • He’s iron tough, despite the goofy persona.

  • They’re playing an interview segment on SportsCenter with Dabo Swinney and Nick Saban together, and it’s hilarious to watch Dabo ramble on while Saban side-eyes him with that “I’mma rip your dick off and feed it to your kids tomorrow night” face.

    • Bones

      Has Cutty Sark stayed on the wagon?

      • We’ll know tomorrow if he starts the game with two flea-flickers and a double reverse!

  • jobber123

    Wrestling could definitely use a few more Beer City Bruiser types.

    • Aaron

      He’s more agile than he looks.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    At the time, I was sure that the HHH-Austin finish at No Way Out 2001 was setting up a Rock-Austin-HHH triple threat at Wrestlemania

    • SpiralTap

      Thank god that didn’t happen.

      • chicagodem79

        LOL, man, that’s an ultimate what-if. You had the 3 best in the biz in the money match at Wrestlemania. That would’ve had to try REALLY hard to suck.

        • SpiralTap

          I don’t know, man, the backstage promo with Austin saying “I NEED to beat you, Rock” is so damn money.

          • chicagodem79

            Yeah I mean by default a one on one match is probably better than a triple threat, but it’s an interesting what-if. And if it happened to be an elimination match, it might’ve even been more epic.

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        For sure. I thought the HHH win just meant he was taking the Austin pin in a triple threat.

        Taker/Kane vs Haku/Rikishi seemed set as well.

        • I actually felt bad for Rikishi. Ill advised heel turn or not, he worked his ass off with all the main event guys and then gets left off Mania completely.

          • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

            Damn, I don’t think I ever realized that he was left off the card completely lol

  • jobber123

    I’ve seen 5th graders bigger than Jon Silver. I don’t like this teams changes against Bruiser and Silas Young.

  • Jackson Smith

    Yep, Meghan McCain’s already started what I said – “”This Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won. And if people in Hollywood don’t start recognizing why and how – you will help him get re-elected.” Just act like Meryl insulted and looked down on football and ignore the rest.

    Not to mention a charter member of the Lucky Sperm Club like Meghan McCain acting like Jus’ Folks is ridiculous beyond belief.

    • Upvoted for “Lucky Sperm Club”. That’s a money line.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Her dad kissing trump’s ass after being humiliated publicly is a bigger reason why he won.

      • Bones

        That was Ted Cruz

        • How the hell do you support someone after he said that your father might have helped kill JFK?

          Ted Cruz is a spineless pussy.

          • Bones

            Cosigned…show some guts/self respect.

          • And A Diddly New Year

            Trump shamed Cruz’s entire family: dad, wife, etc.

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          Nope,McCain endorsed him as well. Before Cruz.

          • That’s right. Anyone else disrespects a war hero and they’d get run out of the country. Trump does it and it’s just “LOL that’s Trump!”

    • Yeah, let’s ignore the part where Streep talked about how the press is now being vilified and pretty much shut out now.

  • jobber123

    I love the fat ref in ROH. He is actually pretty good and is he just a good funny looking guy. Wrestling needs more “weird” for lack of a better work looking people. Not the he looks weird, just funny but same idea. And like I said he’s legit good.

    • Aaron

      Todd Sinclair. Love the inside joke.

    • And A Diddly New Year

      When they come to San Antonio he’s the most over guy on the roster. It’s bizarre

      • jobber123

        He has a look. It is better than just being a bland pretty boy.

  • jobber123

    This ref is reminding me of when Vince would bury the fat refs on commentary in the late 80’s. That is absolute gold. VKM would be all over this dude.

    • Aaron

      I love that both English teams for New Japan get on the refs, especially Red Shoes.

      • jobber123

        I don’t have a whole lot about NJPW to bitch about but the wwe mid card belts have more credibility than those refs now. They are kind of burying them too much.

        • Aaron
