Kayfabe Commentaries Releases Newest Installment of the YouShoot Series

YouShoot with Mr. Anderson is being released today and you can view the trailer by clicking on the link below

  • Steph’s tits!

  • Bruce Chung

    That looks more like DDP wearing the Anderson shirt.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Huh. I thought it was him at first.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    *Grumble grumble wrestling grumble grumble.*

  • Morning all. Was I drunk last night (probably a little) or was everything with the HBK segment awesome?

    • It wasn’t probably the one part of Raw worth watching.

      I about threw something at my tv when Steph decided she had to put down the Boss.

      • Yeah her running down Sasha and Bayley was terrible.

        How they can’t see the difference between heel authority abusing babyface and bitch putting herself over the talent.. is beyond me

    • Diddly

      Bruh you did the coin toss for the National Championship! How were you able to watch Raw?

  • Daniel Swinney

    Did gladiator movies become considered gay just because of shirtless muscular dudes or was it actually a prominent genre of gay porn?

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      I assumed they just had a large gay audience.

    • Death Rollins

      Daniel, do you like movies about gladiators?

  • I remember Dave Crist at a local indy show a couple years ago…..nice to see him on a bigger stage, both in PWG and FiP

  • The Polish Hammer

    Rusev “congratulating” Jericho:
    https://twitter.com/RusevBUL/status/818683482738225153

    • Hayden

      That is fantastic.

    • Rusev is being so underused

      • Is he even doing anything right now? Is he still stuck teaming with Jinder Mahal and feuding with Enzo? Lol

        • seems that way. I like that he is way over even though he isn’t given anything to work with so they saddle him with a DOA guy who needs rub.

          Blanche however is very smitten with Mr. Mahal

    • DAJackson7

      Hahaha. They really should let him say whatever he wants

  • Brian_Bayless

    Both PWG and the NJPW lineups look good

    • Ioan Morris

      Some fantastic matches over the two TNB shows. Smart idea to remove Bullet Club from the cards entirely.

    • you not doing Raw reviews anymore

      • Brian_Bayless

        I’ll be back next week.

        Yesterday was my birthday and I forgot to DVR

    • Ioan Morris

      Oh, and just noticed Jay White in there! His first PWG show?

      • Brian_Bayless

        yes

      • cultstatus

        Yeah.

  • Comdukakis

    so I think we established now that Reigns is winning the title at RR

    • If that wasn’t already painfully obvious from the get go.

    • Duke Bangore

      On the plus side, we will not have to see the NBC Universal Nakimura Pants CHAMPIONSHIP for a while, as it will be slung over Roman’s back.

  • It’s only Tuesday? God damn.

    • Bruce Chung

      It’s the best wrestling day of the week.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    Continuing the discussion du jour: you’ll never have the JYD/Hogan/Dusty types again because the system that created those guys no longer exists and WWE either weeds those personalities out or systematically breaks them down so they become compliant. When you truly believe you would be living in a cardboard box if not for the benevolence of the McMahon family, how likely are you to stand up for yourself and demand better treatment?

    They absolutely would have broken Piper and Savage within months in this current environment. Dusty would have been laughed out of the office, and Hogan would have been cool-daddied to death within a year.

    • Wade

      It’s not the personality behind the scenes that’s needed; it’s the larger than life cartoon character charisma aspect that is needed.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        But the behind-the-scenes personality drives that. You can’t take a cardboard cut-out and make them a charismatic star (hello, Roman!) if there’s nothing backing it up.

        • And they are too afraid to hire loose cannon types anymore because of the corporate environment. You can’t take outrageous people and gas them up with cocaine and send them out there to do crazy shit anymore. Guys like Piper and Flair would be seen as liabilities in today’s world.

      • Death Rollins

        Agreed, but can you have the one without the other?

        • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

          I don’t think so. WWE takes guys who come in a bit wild and tames all the personality out of them. Then they give them a Corporate-Approved Persona and when that fails they blame the talent for not getting over. Compliant, meek talent might make for a peaceful lockerroom, but it makes the shows boring as hell.

          • Death Rollins

            Yeah, I mean, these guys aren’t professional actors for the most part. That’s why wrestling’s always been about reacting and improvising. (But in this environment, the ones who actually have a bit of acting experience have come across better on TV for it.)

    • I agree. Part of what made guys like Piper and Savage and Austin and whoever else so dynamic on screen is that they were “wild card” type personalities in real life. That’s what made them larger than life. You really got the sense that these guys, even with the volume turned down, would have a hard time existing in real society, because they were so colorful and outrageous and didn’t take any shit from anybody (the McMahon family included). I have no problem picturing Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens getting berated by some regional office manager type at Walmart, because they seem like normal geeks who do normal shit. Essentially, being in the WWE these days IS an office job. It’s all so corporate and sterile now.

  • Wade

    Last Friday’s CMLL show in playlist form, for anybody looking for a possible Lucha alternative to WWE. I usually skip the women, but the rest was great!

    https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYyNnOBGWP7TSqXD6dZMiAW-muNvY4Ily

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      “I usually skip the women…”

      Dude, you can’t give these miscreants a setup like that!

    • Ioan Morris

      Btw doesn’t look like Yoshi Tatsu’s going to CMLL after all.

      • Wade

        Aww.

        • Ioan Morris

          I mean, something might happen during Fantastica Mania to change that. I hope for your sake that it does!

  • went to bed before the main event last night just watching it now.
    Roman still carrying the belt like a douche I see

  • Bones

    So Raw broke Bayless, Danimal and we broke AndyPG so who’s next?!?!

    • Brian_Bayless

      I’ll be back next week.

      • Six Star TatR!

        It’s okay man, we won’t force you to do it

      • Bones

        You aren’t Tommy Hall. You don’t have to do this to yourself.

        • Bruce Chung

          If he wants two houses like Scherer has he does!

        • Brian_Bayless

          In all honesty, the show doesnt bother me.

          However, after celebrating my birthday, I really didnt care to review a three hour TV show.

          • Bruce Chung

            Are you a man yet?

    • Diddly

      My Christmas was ruined since I couldn’t buy Danimal’s “Raw Reviews and Recipes” e-book

    • I don’t know how anyone could review a three hour show every week like that.

      I used to do two hours Raws from 97-99, and that broke me. And that was when the shows were GOOD.

    • The best Andy is still here.

  • Why was he never called out for carrying the belt like that
    “Hey Roman.. you know…carrying the belt like that…. we only ever see it when you are running away”

  • cultstatus

    Watched Fully Loaded 98 this morning, it’s a really fun show. Scott’s rant on it is waaaay too harsh.

    • Wade

      I like that Rock-HHH match.

      • cultstatus

        I had it at ****, it was perfect example of overbooking done right. I was shocked to see Scott give it **.

        • Wade

          Agreed.

          It was good Russo in that the overbooking continued and enhanced the story.

          • It was such an obvious draw from the get-go, I think that hurt it a lot.

    • Six Star TatR!

      WWF was on a run of awesomeness though, it was a bit flat compared to much of what was going on

  • Diddly

    Shocked that PWG’s show isn’t called “Carrie and Debbie”

  • Daniel Swinney

    Jericho might have the bossest assortment of different national-level North American titles anyone has won. Just off the top of my head, he’s now won the WWE, WCW, IC, US, Euro, Hardcore, TV, Cruiserweight and multiple lineages of tag titles. And if “World” title is a third thing from the WWE and WCW titles then he won that too.

    • Wade

      ECW Television too!

    • cultstatus

      I think Edge still has that record.

      • Daniel Swinney

        Edge’s might be about number of reigns. He obviously never won the cruiserweight or TV titles. He does have WWE and “World” but not WCW. And I don’t think he won any sets of tag titles that Jericho didn’t. Has WWE had a title that Jericho was eligible for that he didn’t win?

        • DAJackson7

          Well he never won the WWE Cruiserweight title, but that lineage did include WCW before so maybe he has

          • Daniel Swinney

            Yeah, true, or the LHW title. But I’m not sure what the weight limit was on that. I know he’s not eligible for the new CW title.

  • What was the results from BoD raw? I fell asleep after the first match… those load times are brutal to stay awake through when you have to be up at 6

    • Bayless won his debut. Rudo Awakening went over in his debut also. Rudo looks like a star. There were a few tag matches. Curtzerker qualified for the Rumble. Hoss beat Dwarn in the Cell. I think Dwarn might be done, the novelty has worn off… I dunno. Solid episode but nothing you really had to see. That Rudo match was unreal though. ****** squash.

      • Death Rollins

        Dwarn is like Jet Jaguar? He came in, destroyed everything, and was never heard from again.

        • I compared him to Eugene last night. Came in, immediately became the most over act on the show, and then the novelty wore off hard and fast and everybody turned on him.

      • Six Star TatR!

        How many stars was my match?

        • Brian_Bayless

          ***

          • Six Star TatR!

            So everyone else put on a -*** performance to drag me down from ******? Jesus christ people.

          • Brian_Bayless

            It was sad they all tried to drag you down.

          • Six Star TatR!

            This also happens in daily threads often I feel

        • You guys had a really solid tag match. **1/2-***. I think you and Vinson could be a great babyface team with a better push.

          • Six Star TatR!

            I am a great babyface for sure

      • What about me… what about Peyton?

        • You were not booked. NationWide I believe has a 6-man tag match on BoD Smackdown though.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Big six-man tomorrow night. Nationwide vs. Hoss & Daily Bagel

  • cultstatus

    WWE are really missing out on Rusev being this generation’s Kurt Angle.

    • If Kurt does come back he should come back during a Rusev promo…and much like the Bishoff McMahon segment.. Hug mid ring

    • Ioan Morris

      He and Big E feels like a natural fit for the top of the card.

      • cultstatus

        I need a Rusev/Big E Super Powers team right meow.

        • Miko363

          I desperately want a Rusev/KO feud that is 90% Twitter-based.

          • DAJackson7

            At least the writing monkeys in the back wouldn’t screw it up

        • Wouldn’t that make Rusev this generation’s Nikita Koloff?

        • Stan Ford

          Yes, but then Big E will be wearing Mark Henry’s old US flag singlet, they’ll stick Rusev in an Andre style one-strapper with a hammer and sickle on it and there’ll be Trump references out the ass and Vince will guffaw and you’ll hate it.

  • Blanche wants you guys to find good pictures of Jinder Mahal in a suit for her because she was pretty taken with his looks last night and wasn’t finding any good suit pictures. She didn’t like how veiny he was

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      Racist!

    • Dwayne

      That’s some weird shit.

  • Six Star TatR!

    I saw a picture on twitter of what seemed to be Steph berating Foley. I bet that was an enjoyable segment

    • segment? that was half the show

    • Mikey

      Not sure if that was more brutal or if her berating Sasha and Bayley was more enjoyable

    • Brian_Bayless

      The New Day/Titus stuff is really awful

  • Mikey

    Foley looked great

    • being run down by Steph & Taker?
      or were you talking about the hair?

      • Mikey

        Hair and look. He never should have long hair again.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      Relative term.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    I feel the same way about Rusev that some here used to feel about Wade Barrett: every time I see him, I think “is this seriously the best they can do with this guy? Why isn’t he being used better?”

    It’s gotta be the Lana thing, even after all this time.

    • yet she is great out there and always adds even in the background

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        I think Vince is STILL pissed that they got married and ruined his storyline for them, and thus whenever the idea of a bigger push for Rusev comes up it gets shot down.

    • Death Rollins

      It might also be how reliable he is. You can always heat Rusev up because he’s got a monster look, works really well, and has a heat magnet manager. You can forget about him for a while and then send him out there to ambush Roman or something and it’s instantly credible.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        I don’t know, I’m always wary of the “he can be reheated” argument because eventually the fans figure out the game and they stop caring once they realize you’re going nowhere. Rusev might have better luck as a heel, though.

        • Devin Harris

          That’s the worst rep one can possess in wwe

          • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

            I mean, look no further than Ziggler.

        • Death Rollins

          No, I think it has a bad endgame. I just think that’s how they see him.

        • Stan Ford

          You can reheat a tupperware of leftovers countless times, but after a certain point, it turns into disgusting, putrid slop.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      does she still have NUCLEAR HEAT?!

      • maskedcabana

        They’ve put her in movies and Total Divas so probably not.

        • AnInternetToughGuy

          NUCLEAR HEAT!

  • cultstatus

    In my TEW game set in 91, I finally rose to national level as WCW on the back of my version of the Dangerous Alliance angle and I’m now the number one promotion in the world. WWF meanwhile has fallen to cult size due to the steroid scandal and running shit shows. Case in point, this was their SummerSlam 91 card:

    Warrior vs Earthquake for the WWF title
    Slaughter vs Saba Simba
    Perfect vs Knobbs for the IC title
    Valentine and Duggan vs Demolition
    King Kong Bundy vs Bushwacker Luke for the European title
    Koko B. Ware and Jim Powers vs Orient Express
    Bam Bam Bigelow vs Sam Houston
    Nikolai Volkoff vs Bushwacker Butch
    Virgil vs Bob Bradley
    Sid Justice vs Jerry Sags

    • That card is so terrible I think it gave me cancer!

      • Fuck you! Koko B Ware and Jim Powers vs the Orient Express is a main event in any arena across the country!

        But upvoted for the Calculon reference.

        • Dwayne

          So is Virgil vs Bob Bradley

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        Two Bushwacker singles match is a violation of the Geneva Convention.

    • Bones

      I think they’d play that card in the third circle of hell

    • Six Star TatR!

      Good on Jim Powers and Sid for evading getting steroid busted

    • I can’t stop laughing at the idea of Bundy vs. Bushwhacker Luke for the European Title. LOL

    • mike

      Too much bushwacker involvement, but watching Bam Bam murder Sam Houston would be fun.

    • Death Rollins

      Man, that’s terrible. But you could probably rearrange it to something watchable. Nasties vs. Demolition, Bam Bam squashing Slaughter to be the next challenger for Warrior, maybe Sid destroys a couple jobbers in a handicap match?

      • cultstatus

        Sid weirdly doesn’t get pushed at all by WWF in this game.

        • Death Rollins

          Yeah, it’s weird seeing him down there under Virgil and the Bushwackers and Volkoff. Can’t even get a Euro Title shot?!

          • cultstatus

            I just looked at his record, he is 11-11-4.

          • Death Rollins

            50-50 BOOKING MAGGLE

          • AnInternetToughGuy

            Well, 45/45/10 Booking.

          • Death Rollins

            Well just split hairs then, Brother Brutus!

          • AnInternetToughGuy

            *cues Billy Gunn’s Ass Man Theme*

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      MY EYES!

    • Stan Ford

      LOL at the Bushwhackers and Nasty Boys as not only singles wrestlers, but title contenders.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        “Shit, even I wouldn’t do that!” — Herb Abrams, Hell.

      • cultstatus

        Nasty Boys are also their tag champs.

        • Stan Ford

          Oh, good GOD.

  • “No Way Jose” Gomez

    Saw this show on ABC called Superfan, a game show type where 3 fans are quizzed to see who knows facts about the celebrity. It’s actually pretty fun

    • Bruce Chung

      Not creepy at all.

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        The one with Aaron Rodgers was a little much, I would say

    • Bones

      Hollywoods way of finding creepy stalkers?

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        Yeah, now that I think about it

      • Bruce Chung

        Winner of this show gets a free trip to jail.

  • mike

    I loved how Danimal’s review where he quit still had a picture of his dinner. That’s living the gimmick.

    • Yeah what ever happened to that guy? I haven’t seen MervCrasto around either… I guess he’s really done now?

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      That sounds like the equivalent of Rock being stretchered out but still holding up the IC belt at WM 14

      • mike

        Legit lol

    • Diddly

      Join Snapchat and we’ll add you to the BoD group and you can still get snaps of his dinner!

      • Devin Harris

        I’m on it and I want to join

        • Diddly

          What’s your Snap name?

          • Devin Harris

            Jthomas399

          • Diddly

            Cool, added you on Snapchat and to the BoD group!

          • Devin Harris

            Ok good deal

          • Diddly

            (I’m tbanks531 obviously)

      • mike

        I already spend too much time here.

      • Bones

        And the fat fuck commandos!!! But I think they’re gone now 🙁

        And you’ll see what we look like

      • I’d like to see his dinners, but I don’t have data on my phone. Perhaps in the future.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      Boy and a gimmick it sure all was lol

  • slapdabass

    Cobb/Riddle vs Elgin/Cage is gonna set some type of suplex record. It should be amazing.

  • Mikey

    Lana also looked great.

    • Dwayne

      Water also was wet

      • Devin Harris

        But was Lana?

        • Dwayne

          Maybe

      • Mikey

        She looked especially great

  • Bones

    Diddly, who’s the newest member of our snap group?

    • Down Under Aussie (in Aus)

      Hi!

    • Diddly

      Down Under Aussie, I think Kenny added him on Saturday

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Chris is awesome!

      I don’t know who the Tommy is, though…

  • Hayden

    Just before Taker’s gong hit, Mick beginning his rebuttal, “Stephanie, please, I’m so sorry….” was really pathetic.

    • Stan Ford

      Mick in general has been pathetic since he came back.

      • Hayden

        I watched the Edge/Christian/Foley ‘Table for 3’ last night, and they included a bunch of clips of the three of them interacting when Mick was commissioner in 2000, and it was all so great. Like night and day compared to today.

        • Death Rollins

          Mick used to be a funny, self-deprecating smartass. Now he’s just self-deprecating.

        • Stan Ford

          I never much cared for Commissioner Foley (was never really a Foley fan period), but I’ll give him this: he always used to TRY. He used to CARE.

          This new GM Foley is like a guy doing an impression of a guy doing an impression of a guy doing an impression of Commissioner Foley without ever having actually WATCHED Commissioner Foley.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        That’s the writing. Foley is the kind of guy who wil do whatever they tell him to.

  • Death Rollins
    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      He’s been burying talent for over 25 years now.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Nice one!

  • Bones

    If you’re annoyed now, just wait until Big Show beats Cesaro to heat him up for Shaq

    • Dwayne

      He should

    • Bruce Chung

      I’m surprised they haven’t been feeding jobbers or low carders to Big Show to promote the Mania match.

      • Death Rollins

        It would be a perfectly fine use of Ellsworth to get thrown around by Show repeatedly and then Shaq to step in and defend him.

    • Brian_Bayless

      I sense a Big Show/Mark Henry feud

    • Buster Abbott

      Should we be wondering if Shaq will be in the Royal Rumble? Makes sense if he’s a surprise entrant and eliminates Big Show

  • Bones

    And I hear the ice pellets hitting the house…

  • Chris B

    Foley looks great … I’m glad he’s put in the work to lose weight, he’s saving his own life.

    • Dwayne

      If you’re going to be brain damaged, at least be brain damaged and fit

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      How much nicer must exercising be if you don’t have to remember it five minutes after you’re done?

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        Plus, I’m sure he’s used to his body hurting all the time anyway.

      • Dwayne

        That’s how it works. You forget you exercised already so you do it again

        • Devin Harris

          But that would go for eating too

      • Is he working out or forgetting to eat?

    • Hayden

      So much pressure off his joints with that 100 pounds dropped.

      • Chris B

        I’ve lost about 40 pounds over the last 8 months and everything is better, so I can’t even imagine the relief he must feel with all of his other physical problems.

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    My wife goes back to work tomorrow. She’s been an absolute fucking mess.

  • Mr.Snrub

    Hey AJ, can you move a bit farther back, we need to get the real stars in the shot PAL!

    • Death Rollins

      Wow! He’s slightly further up than Miz!

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      The most prestigious champion of wrestling…

    • Death Rollins

      Also, I know Charlotte is Women’s Champion and all, but SHE WILL NEVER DRAW MONEY GIVE IT UP GUYS.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      I’m stunned by how far back Orton is. Stunned and pleased.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      R-Truth appears closer to the foreground. Hard times.

    • Mick

      3 part time guys and Cena are the main focus. lol

      • DAJackson7

        So four part time guys

    • Ok, Taker is legendary, been around forever, yadda yadda blah blah blah.

      Enough already. Retire before you fucking injure yourself severely.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    OMG! That next PWG show looks AMAZING!!!

  • Brian_Bayless

    What shoot interview recap do you guys want for this week? The Mr. Anderson YouShoot or Kenny Omega’s shoot interview?

      Lol, this will be an easy one. That brand new hip wrestler that needs to be in WWE so everyone can watch him without having to like…try

      • Death Rollins

        These torrent sites are lies!

    • Wade

      Anderson!!!!!!!

      …Anderson!

    • The Anderson one looks more interesting than Kenny’s

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      I think you gotta give the people what they want… Kenny by the barrel full.

    • Dwayne

      Anderson

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Kenny!

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        You would

      • Dwayne

        Ken-ny Anderson?

        • Kenny_Reigns

          He’s great, too!

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Kennys are ALWAYS better than Kens!!

    • Hayden

      Omega.

    • zahidf

      Omega for sure, Timely!

  • Devin Harris

    Deshaun Watson going pro and he’s not even going to be a first round pick. Guess he figured it’s better than spending another year getting beat up and criticized

    • Bones

      He’ll be a first rounder just watch

      • Devin Harris

        I don’t see it

        • Bones

          Have you seen QB play in the NFL

          He’ll have a good workout and someone will fall in love.

          • Devin Harris

            Good point

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Huge body, super athletic…NFL people fall in love with that stuff.

        • Too many teams need QBs and He’s A Winner!(TM)

      • Brian_Bayless

        The consensus is 3-5 round pick from what I’ve heard

  • Six Star TatR!

    I was trying to catch up on some 2016 stuff recently and I watched the draft show on Smackdown live. That might have been one of Steph’s worst ever. The incessant sniping, her screechy renditions of everyones catchphrases, and for the whooooole show.

    • Miko363

      I’ll always remember her doing Sasha’s pose/dance at the podium while she leeched off the little heat anyone still had. She was extra insufferable that show.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      I like when she chirps New Day’s stuff because New Day needs to go away and Steph liing them is a surefire way to turn the internet against them

    • Ripner Cabbit

      Well Smackdown starting the week after became the show of 2016, just make sure to watch the Talking Smack that goes with each episode after each episode.

  • cultstatus

    This is my next planned PPV card as WCW:

    Sting/Flair/Savage/Steamboat/Windham vs Dangerous Alliance(Rude/Luger/Arn/Eaton/Austin) in WarGames
    Bulldog vs Muta
    Pillman and Owen vs Bret and Razor
    Jarrett/Lawler vs Steiners for the tag titles
    Harlem Heat vs Rockers for the US tag titles
    Malenko vs Liger for the Cruiserweight title
    Larry Z vs Vader
    Cactus Jack vs Sullivan
    Nikita Koloff vs Regal
    Rhodes vs Martel
    2 Cold and Simmons vs DDP and Flamingo.

    My roster is staaaaaaaaaaaaaacked.

    • That card is so awesome I think it gave me the opposite of cancer!

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        Shmancer?

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      I’d pay to see that.

      Larry Z vs. Vader would either be awesome or a trainwreck, though.

      • Death Rollins

        Stall Stall DESTRUCTION

      • AnInternetToughGuy

        Vader would murder him and it would be glorious. The stall would make the impending squash so enjoyable.

      • cultstatus

        Just gonna be a quick squash for Vader. I’m letting Larry Z go after the match.

    • brocore

      TEW?

      • cultstatus

        Wrestling booking sim game called Total Extreme Warfare.

        • To answer brocore’s question, yes.

          • cultstatus

            haha, I thought he was responding to my other post.

  • Disqus seems to be working again…yay

  • Robinson Tilapia

    Has anyone gone from “hey, this guy’s cool,” to not being so quicker than Jack Gallagher? That was painful last night.

    • Wade

      Sandow?

      • Robinson Tilapia

        At least he had months of being cool as second fiddle, then he thought IMITATIONS would get him over.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      Not trying to be “that guy” but I didn’t even like him in CWC.
      I felt it was too novel and would wear thin fast.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        I think even a second-tier guy wrestling so different a style is cool but, in typical WWE fashion, it’s both being played for comedy and we are being hit with the Sledgehammer of Plot as to his being British.

        I think he could tell, about halfway through that promo last night, that he was becoming Santino.

    • Mick Foley every time he comes back from an extended time off?

    • I liked him in CWC but I’ve always thought that his schtick would be best used sparingly. He’ll get exposed pretty quick if he’s out there every week.

    • zahidf

      He’s not there yet, but a) he needs to move away from Divari asap b) needs to wrestle longer.

  • “No Way Jose” Gomez

    I still don’t understand Snapchat. I’m good with the Instagrams and Bookface

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      It’s for young people.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      Yeah it’s very messy. I’d join anyway but I don’t think there’s a way to block people from a group

    • I understand Instagram inasmuch as it’s something my wife uses and involved photographs.
      I’ve never heard of bookface.

    • Bruce Chung

      It deletes the history. So it “can’t” be traced or leave evidence.

  • cultstatus

    This Raw I’m watching is historical as fuck. First appearance of Godfather’s hoes. The start of the Hawk is drunk angle. Bart Gunn knocking out Dr. Death and JR having a nervous breakdown over it. The start of the choppy choppy pee pee angle.

    And there is still a half hour left in the show!

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    What’s the realistic lifecycle of the Women’s division? Are we really going to have the same 8 women wrestling each other for the next five years? They did 3 years worth of Charlotte/Banks in about 4 months.

    • Death Rollins

      Well, they’ve been hiring indie-tested women for NXT at a pretty rapid pace, so I’m guessing in a year’s time there’s gonna be a lot of cycling around the two women’s rosters.

    • Miko363

      They might be able to let Dana Brooke work a match again by like June.

      • Bones

        Is she hurt?

        • Death Rollins

          Her opponents are.

        • Miko363

          Sprained talent.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Cole, Young Bucks, Scurll, and Ricochet all on the PWG card, and Chuck Taylor gets a main event spot? That’s…odd.

  • Marvkie Post – #10

    I feel like this avatar is going to get Bonzai to finally admit something some of us already suspect anyway lol

    • Ok, now you’ve gone too fucking far with this avatar bullshit.

    • Wade

      I’m not sure who that’s supposed to be.

      • Marvkie Post – #10

        It’s uh…it’s pretty obvious in the name…

        • Dwayne

          He doesn’t know who Marvkie Post is.

        • Wade

          A google search tells me she was on something called “Night Court!”

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            How in the blue hell did you miss Night Court coming up?!

          • Wade

            It ended when I was six?

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            Yeah but it was on reruns for like…forever

            That’s like missing Cheers.

          • Wade

            I recently discovered there was a bartender pre-Woody on that show

          • DAJackson7

            The Coach!

          • Dwayne

            I remember that show vaguely when I was a kid but I never went back to watch the reruns

          • Dwayne

            Cheers not Night Court

          • Dwayne

            He’s barely 30

          • Dwayne

            It was a good show. You were a bit young when it was out. It actually started when i was really young too but I remember it.

      • Dwayne

        You ever saw Night Court?

        • Marvkie Post – #10

          This is not an obscure reference I thought lol

    • Today is the day that he finally lets slip that his girlfriend’s name is Gary?

      • Dwayne

        Instead of Maude it’s Maury

  • Miko363

    I just got an email about a new Network Collection called Destruction of the Shield.

    I think it’s really cool they’re gonna let us watch Creative meetings on the Network like that.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      “50/50 Booking: The Collection.”

      • Miko363

        Hosted by Dolph Ziggler and Kofi Kingston.

    • Daniel Swinney

      So it’ll be the one segment where the Shield got destroyed, followed by Roman shrugging about it.

      • Miko363

        That was the best. They booked Ambrose to be out for revenge the entire summer, while Roman just kinda hung out backstage.

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    Chick in the auto shop keeps getting up to stretch. She’s got that side of her head shaved look. Single, three kids. I’m married as fuck.

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      *sad trombone*

    • Death Rollins

  • There is absolutely no way Jinder Mahal isn’t juicing right?

    • It’s a healthy way to eat. I tried it for awhile; couldn’t stick with it. Cause no ice cream.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        You can juice ice cream! Or just let it melt.

        • The only way I juice ice cream is to make a shake.

          Let it melt? Fuck off.

    • Hayden

      Nope.

      • I understand the pressure because this is your second shot and you are coming in as a low card guy as it is but.. it boggles my mind if that look does help him in Vince’s eyes.. there is getting a little bigger to please Vince and then there is veins ready to pop Pre-Benoit disaster era which you think even Vince would be…dude… knock it off.. my company isn’t going to be tanked by Jinder Mahal

    • Bones

      Don’t hinder Jinder!

      Or his cycle.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      He doesn’t look, “well.”

    • Miko363

      There’s zero incentive for him not to.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      Most of those guys are probably on at least test.
      To be on the road that often, constantly wearing down your body, and maintaining a physically impressive physique is very improbable without assistance.

      • Hayden

        This. It’s kinda funny that the constant boasting of the “very few people could handle the schedule we have/the time we spend on the road” variety that the E likes is an implicit admittance to the rampant use of performance enhancers, because on the one hand the guys openly admit they don’t have the time to properly train and recover, yet their physiques remain sublime.

      • But Jinder is in the first half of the 00’s level of burst out of his skin

        • AnInternetToughGuy

          I saw a video earlier of him lifting with Big E, Strowman and CT Fletcher.
          He didn’t look super big, but really veiny and ripped (super-low body fat).
          But yeah, I’m sure he is on Something.
          Whether that’s just test or stronger stuff (tren, dbol, etc) is speculation.

    • Night

      He’s friggin massive. And guys like Neville and Ryder weren’t looking too natural, either.

    • maskedcabana

      It’s usually way cheaper than buying it at the store.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      Gotta juice man or the fans won’t find you sexy enough

    • nintydayfiance

      It’s that Flat Tummy Tea

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    So after trying Raw last week and taking 2 (!) naps during the show, I avoided it like the plague last night. Were the cruiser matches any good? Have there been any non-CWC cruiser matches that stand out?

    • Daniel Swinney

      205 Live has had good (not great) main events.

      • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

        It’s just so vexing how they’ve taken something that was good and different in the CWC, and WWE-ized it. And really, it’s kind of pointless, since they give them three minutes to work, give them stupid storylines and main-roster gimmicks (like pervert Noam Dar), and guys like Neville and Kendrick are working more methodically as heels. Yet another wasted opportunity.

  • Bobby

    A coworker just bet me $20 that the Texans would beat the Patriots. That’s easy money son.

    • Bones

      He doesn’t even want the 16 points?

      • Bobby

        He just said beat them straight up. Even 16 points is pretty safe I’d say.

        • AnInternetToughGuy

          He shouldn’t bet on things.

          • Bobby

            It’s his team, apparently. Ain’t my fault he’s betting with his heart instead of his head tho.

          • AnInternetToughGuy

            That’s still dumb.
            I’m a Steelers fan, and even I wouldn’t bet on Pitt to beat New England straight-up on the road.
            But good for you, lol.
            Easy money.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    I think Big E should shave his head. I’ve never liked his haircut.

    • Wade

      I feel the same about Owens.

      • AnInternetToughGuy

        And his pube beard.

    • The only haircut that should seriously be changed is AJ Styles’.

      • DAJackson7

        I love AJ’s hair, he looked like nobody with the short hair. And the Mrs’ cousin actually is the one who does his hair so i’m biased

        • I don’t normally judge men’s appearance, but that’s what I’d call a hair don’t.

  • Robert

    Did anything good or interesting happen on Raw? Because that football game was fantastic.

  • More likely to be boring in 2026? The three-day Wrestemania 42 weekend headlined by Today Show host John Cena vs Shane McMahon, or the 48-team World Cup?

    • DAJackson7

      Eh, they need more Asia and African teams, UEFA wants 16 European teams, it’ll be fine

      • One top-four finish (4th) by an Asian or African team in Cup history, and that’s when a host country made it. The tournament isn’t helped by adding more teams.

        • DAJackson7

          Well True it’s always going to be Brasil, Germany, Uruguay, and some combination of France, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal but this puts more eyes on it.

    • Six Star TatR!

      The World Cup should be a lot of fun.

      The now incredibly pointless qualifying stages of the World Cup should now be horrendous. They’re bad enough already when you have to get through 10 games when it’s pretty much guaranteed who qualifies anyway.

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    She’s sitting there in a zip hoodie and shop cap, but still hot. Hot chick name, hot chick voice.

    • Jaysus. Either go whack off or get a room with her already.

      Stalker boy.

      😉

    • Dwayne

      Just get her number already

    • Just yell IM MARRIED and run away from her

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        I think we’re both having fun with this a bit. We’re the only two people in the shop.

    • I think everyone’s had that auto shop bathroom quickie.

  • So is this forever? is Disqus never going to get back to it’s normal shitty but functional status again?

    • Like your career, nothing is forever, Peyton.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      From their website it appears they weren’t aware there was ever a problem. Maybe it’s just this site? I don’t know

    • It’s working for me….maybe you should unretire

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      This is life now.

    • Robert

      Still sucks for me too

  • Wade

    I’ve never seen Night Court.

    I remember Friends, The Simpsons and Seinfeld from when I was little though!

    • Six Star TatR!

      I remember the Simpsons!

      • AnInternetToughGuy

        Member?

      • Diddly

        Sometimes I feel like it’s still on the air!

    • Dwayne

      Out of those 3 I know Night Court the best. I did watch the Simpsons until about 98 or so.

    • Bobby

      What’s Seinfeld?

    • Night court was fun. It was never really in re-runs so it’s not a show that I’ve seen every ep 20 times, but it was good.

      • It was in daytime syndication pretty heavy in the early 90’s. I remember watching it as a kid on sick days.

  • Miko363

    The Network’s New Collection: “Remember when we were gonna push this guy?”

    Kofi Kingston: Pinning Punk and Orton clean at Survivor Series, followed by Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

    Dolph Ziggler: Winning at Survivor Series, then getting berated and fired by Steph so John Cena could get over.

    Zack Ryder: The Rock promo where he got interrupted by Zack Ryder chants, Ryder winning the US Title, followed by Kane pushing him off the stage while Cena kisses his girlfriend.

    • Bones

      There would be many collections

      • Miko363

        Oh there’s gonna be a 20 minute talking head deal about the InCenarater and how much everyone respects the Undertaker.

        • AnInternetToughGuy

          Don’t anyone dare call him Taker.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      (Still image of Mordecai before they quickly realized he sucked)

  • Wade

    I remember really liking the X-Files when I was like seven or eight.

    • Miko363

      The X-Files was legendary back in the day, that was my show all through middle school. Seasons 2 through 4 are still excellent.

      Of course, as all networks did at the time, they dragged the show out way past its expiration date.

      • Bobby

        And then Mulder left and I’m like why is this still going?

    • Six Star TatR!

      What a disaster that show became. And people wanted to bring it back! The fools! I tried to warn them. I tried to warn them that it wouldn’t be Early X-Files that returned, it’d be weak-ass later era X-Files. They didn’t listen. They neeeeeeeeever do.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        Never got into it.

        I’m worried about the 24 reboot, though.

    • brocore

      I went back and rewatched most of it a few months ago. After they wrap up the main storyline in season five it begins to lose steam, but it really goes off the rails once they tried to replace Skinner.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        Never seen the X Files, but just how many seasons did that show go through to turn bad?

        • ProjectBlue

          It lost something right around when they switched filming from Vancouver to la to try to keep duchovny happy. Season 5

          • brocore

            I’d say it’s even fun into season six. But that’s clearly the season where there’s the largest jumps in quality from episode to episode.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    So there’s history/beef between Lana and Big E?

  • cultstatus

    The main event of this Raw is Austin and Taker vs The Outlaws for the tag titles. Should be awesome.

    • Mick

      Hey! That just happened two years ago.

  • Ioan Morris

    What did Gallagher do on Raw?

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      Smashed a watermelon, the guts got on Steph and she slapped him into obscurity.

    • From what I gathered, he’s demanding a peace treaty with Davari

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      He did what he always does, acted like a true gentleman.

  • Nice to see that PWG is booking their tag team champions like the WWE booked Nikki Bella in her last Divas reign

  • Devin Harris

    Now I have the night court theme in my head. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing

  • Duck, dude, wanna form an off-BoD clique of people who don’t know about popular entertainment?
    I don’t have snapchat but we could fax or something.

    • Six Star TatR!

      You could communicate through personal ads in the local newspaper

      • Night

        Legit lol.

      • Andrew Champagne

        I think someone wrote a song about that at some point.

  • I liked Due South. At least until the original Ray left and they recast him and did the most moronic handwave ever to explain it. I also liked Full House. I DIDN’T like Family Ties. Especially not the littlest kid in it, fuck him.

    • Alex P. Keaton was awesome! Everyone else was just kind of there.

      I’m Canadian, and I think the only Due South episode I’ve seen is the one with Leslie Neilsen.

      • Night

        It’s actually funny how little Canadians watch Canadian TV.

        • What’s funny is how funny Canadians are, and how unfunny Canadian TV is.

    • Ioan Morris

      Early evening BBC2 was the best.

    • The one where The Mountie gets shot was super sad 🙁

  • Robert

    Single mom with three kids? She probably hasn’t gotten it good in a while. Make your move, chief.

    • Bobby

      Yeah, except three kids means she’s fertile as fuck. Better be careful.

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        … and I got super sperm. I’m afraid to even flirt, she might end up pregnant just from that.

        • “No Way Jose” Gomez

          *blankly looks at you*
          Shut the fuck dude!

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      As long as it’s a one-time thing. You don’t want to become new dad to those kids if you don’t want to.

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        Oh come on. That’s awful.

        • Robert

          Why? Sleeping with mommy doesn’t have to lead to raising somebody else’s kids

  • Ioan Morris

    Northern Exposure is great if anyone has 90s nostalgia.

    • Every Alaskan thinks the show was based on their home town.

      • Ioan Morris

        I wonder how many people ill-advisedly tried to move there in the wake of the show.

        • Thought: “It’s so liberal and quirky!”
          Reality: “This is the state that elected Sarah Palin governor.”

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    Top Gear is done. Watching Border Patrol now… she gets pretty excited about this.

  • Robert

    Is this auto shop thing gonna go down like a bad porno movie?

    • Dwayne

      Is a bad one where the guy doesn’t get laid?

      • Robert

        Nah, where there’s too much talking before you get to the action. Yours is correct too. He’s already done too much thinking.

        • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

          So you’re saying he should whip it out in the middle of the shop?!?

          • Robert

            Stop lollygagging and see if she’s down.

          • The Polish Hammer

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      In that I won’t be watching it, yes probably

  • Diddly

    Something that bothers me about that AT&T commercial with all the TV and movie characters, besides the fact that it’s AT&T, is the kids that are fake laughing at Sesame Street, followed by the mom patting the kids on the head for some reason.

    This random post has been brought to you by Tuesday.

    • The Polish Hammer

      I do not like Sesame Street characters being used to shill AT&T. It feels dirty.

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    I didn’t say this in last nights thread, but glad they finally put the US title on Jericho. He’s been doing great lately and it’s the one of the few titles that he hasn’t held onto yet. It’s a good win for him, even if it telegraphs what’s going to happen next between Reigns and Owens.
    Also, never expected to see 2010 NXT to appear on WWE TV like that again.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      Wait, he won the belt?

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        Yep.

    • Starscreamlive

      Jericho and Big Show are the only WCW guys left, aren’t they? Fitting that they give him the last of the WCW titles.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Good news: Someone finally got to stand up to Stephanie.

    Bad news: It was a guy who wrestles 1-2 matches a year.

    • Taker got to beat her sibling too despite Shane being an uncrowned UFC champion.

    • Didn’t Sasha also “stand up” to Steph last night?

      • Andrew Champagne

        All I made an effort to seek out was Taker’s segment.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      One of the little things i liked last night, actually, was Sasha not backing down either.

    The Chevy commercials bug the shit out of me. “This is mind blowing!” “I’m speechless”. Nobody says that shit about Chevrolets.

      The fact that they’re ok calling them Chevys is the most alarming to me. GMC spent a LOT of time and money to shake that moniker.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        Why? Chevy Chase?

        • PATRICKisLEGEND

          GMC saw the name ‘Chevy’ as the truck that was parked on the yard. They were selling ‘Chevrolet’ which was a classy brand.

    • Six Star TatR!

      Man United are sponsored by Chevrolet. Every time I see a Chevrolet logo on a car I go “ooh a Chevrolet”. True story.

      • My first two vehicles were Chevys:

        1996 S-10 (Feb 97-May 02), lost in an accident that was lucky for me and unlucky for the truck.
        2002 Cavalier (Jun 02-Jul 14), honorably retired and replaced with my current vehicle.

      In that case, Cena’s social media game is strong if he’s trolling everyone with his Instagram posts.

    Play “Where’s Waldo” with the WWE World Champion on the Royal Rumble 2017 poster!
    https://i.redd.it/zld9ibjvgw8y.jpg

    • Poor AJ 🙁

    • Night

      Good thing they could stick in Royal Rumble contender R-Truth on that poster.

    • Diddly

      Is that supposed to be the Alamo in the back?

    • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

      So Truth, Neville, Kalisto, and Swann get to be in the poster, but not Braun, Baron, Bliss, or Becky?

      • flamingtoilet

        I’d say drop Bayley and Banks and put Braun and Baron. Cause right now it looks like Bayley and Banks are actually in the Rumble.

        • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

          But would you still keep Charlotte on the poster?

          • flamingtoilet

            No, but her name doesn’t have a B in it so it didn’t work with the bit.

            Also, I forgot she was on there somehow. Move AJ up there at least, for Pete’s sake. Put James Ellsworth in AJ’s spot cause you know he’s going to be in the Rumble.

    • Is Taker in the Rumble?

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        Yes. He announced that last night

        • Didn’t watch the end 😛 this is probably one of the most star studded Rumbles in awhile.

    • Six Star TatR!

      The Undertaker. Eww.

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        That photo of the Undertaker is at least 5 years old

    • also Kevin Owens clearly just farted based on Ambrose

    • The Polish Hammer

      Why would they have Brock & Goldberg standing next to each other? They should be on opposite sides of the poster.

  • I used to watch Northern Exposure.

  • tannerfamilyfun92

    We’re going to get World Champions of John Cena and Roman Reigns at Royal Rumble 2017.

    If someone awesome doesn’t win the Rumble, expect another year of the crowd booing the ending of the match

    • Night

      It’s either Taker or Goldberg.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        Of course I’m hoping for a surprise return by Finn.

        • tannerfamilyfun92

          “WHO? OH, THAT INJURY PRONE MIDGET THAT HUNTER IS ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT? NOT A CHANCE, PAL!”

        • Night

          There’s no way Finn’s taking the Rumble over a guy who is tall or a guy who is muscular.

      • cabspaintedyellow

        Despite the Strowman tease last night, I just don’t see how Taker doesn’t win the Rumble and go on to face Cena at Mania. They’re retarded — as in literally, differently abled — if they don’t run that match this year.

        • tannerfamilyfun92

          And at least the crowd will cheer for Taker, because crowds like Taker

        • Night

          The thing is, they don’t need to have Taker win the Rumble for that match to happen. The Rumble should be to elevate someone.

          But I’m past caring now. We’ve been hoping for things to turn the corner creatively for years and they get worse. Fuck it.

          Someone tell me about this Okada guy.

          • cabspaintedyellow

            The Rumble is very rarely about elevating someone these days. Three out of the last five Rumbles were won by John Cena, Batista, and Triple H.

          • DAJackson7

            I agree, if they run Taker-Cena for the title zero fucks will be given by me and it will end Smackdown only watching i do now.

          • AnInternetToughGuy

  • Andrew Champagne

    Since we’re talking about subpar TV shows we used to watch: I watched a show called Hang Time for a little while. It was about a high school basketball team that, for three seasons, was coached by…Dick Butkus? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hang_Time_(TV_series)

    • Starscreamlive

      I remember that show. It was one of those shows that tried to fill the void on Saturday morning NBC that was left when Saved by the Bell ended.

  • I’ve never seen Due South. The only Canadian shows that I’ve watched much of as an adult are Corner Gas and Murdoch Mysteries.

    • And Trailer Park Boys!

      • Due South was awesome. It was like a PG version of Dexter.

      • I’ve seen that. Not for a while though. I also saw half an episode of Little Mosque On The Prairie, which was bad so we turned it off.

      • Six Star TatR!

        I watched a few of those. High concept stuff, a comedy with no jokes.

    • I don’t know if Corner Gas ever had a funnier episode than its first one. Although their cameos were almost always fantastic.

  • The Polish Hammer

    Y’know, seeing Steph smile as the Undertaker walked to the ring really makes me want to see a Steph face turn. She’d be so much more tolerable to watch.

    • It would never stick.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        She would give off a lot of “cool mom” vibes if she did that.

    • She was smiling at her ex husband.

    • flamingtoilet

      Would she?

    • Six Star TatR!

      I don’t think she would. We’d just watch her dance more and be expected to clap along. I’d rather die

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      No you don’t. “Cool Mom Stephanie” is almost as bad as “Authority Stephanie”

      • Andrew Champagne

        So you’re saying it’s an improvement?

    • She’s not really playing a heel or a face any more, though. She’s playing a hard-ass boss who isn’t very likable. Probably not much of a stretch. She’s seen as a heel because of how the Authority played out, but nothing she’s done as part of the new brand split screams “EVIL HEEL AUTHORITY FIGURE.”

      She’s tried to be a neutral figure, it’s just tough to see her that way because of her previous role and no real established turning point (which fans would have shit on anyway).

  • Good to know The WWE World Champion and Swann are on the same level in the eyes of the promotional team

    • Andrew Champagne

      Do we think the WWE World Champion can handle this?

  • Where does Rob Morrow leaving Northern Exposure rank on the “Actors who mistakenly thought they were too big a star for TV” scale? Somewhere between David Caruso and McLean Stevenson?

    • Robert

      I was just about to say David Caruso

      • The Polish Hammer

        Definitely on par with Caruso, no more than a half step below.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      My vote is a weird one, it goes to Brian Dunkleman who left American Idol after the first season. He was a was more likeable Seacrest and he basically never worked again.

    • Andrew Champagne

      Shelley Long leaving Cheers?

    • Ioan Morris

      The sixth series drops off a cliff once he leaves. It’s only another ten or so episodes, but it’s so noticeable.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      1. Shelley Long
      2. David Caruso
      3. McLean Stevenson
      4. Chevy Chase
      5. Rob Lowe

      He’s not top five, maybe top ten.

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        I thought Chase left because he had beef with Bill Murray

        • Does he mean SNL or Community?

          • “No Way Jose” Gomez

            I would say SNL. But then again he was hated by everyone he probably wouldn’t have lasted by the 5th season anyway

          • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

            SNL.

  • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

    It’s just sad that Mania use to be about pushing new stars and now it’s about pushing old stars. I know this has been a thing for years now, but it still bugs the heck out of me.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      On one hand, you got to go with the matches that will draw the most money and interest.

      On the other hand, the reason the regulars don’t draw the most money and interest is because fans have been trained to see the regulars as chumps who can’t stand against the AWESOME POWER OF A STAR FROM YESTERYEAR WORKING PART TIME.

      • “Yep Mode” Abeyance Brown ©

        Perfect explanation here. It’s a lose/lose situation.

        • tannerfamilyfun92

          They painted themselves into a corner. Except for maybe Angle, Goldberg is literally the last star they could pull out of the mothballs whose nostalgia run hasn’t been used up already.

          Elgin had a nice look but his jacket’s sleeves were wayyyy too long.

          • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

            Yeah. It was his first G1. I doubt he really wears suits often–when i met him i got more of a Canadian redneck vibe then a metropolitan Toronto one. For something ill fitting it works though.

            Hopefully his suits upgrade like his robe did when he went to NJPW fulltime and he got a check in the bank.

    • Death Rollins

      Has the ‘E stolen this idea yet? This seems up their corporate alley, and I mean that in the best possible way. If you’re gonna push BRANDING you better be STYLIN’, dammit.

      • And Toru Yano attempting fanciness was adorable

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          Yano going out of his way to get a super fancy suit and still look like shit because his hair is bright orange is the most Yano thing ever.

  • Been listening to some of these “Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard. Conrad here comes off as such an obnoxious smark and Prichard seems to hate everyone. I’ve listened to 3 or 4 shows at this point and I enjoy them, but I also wanna punch everyone involved.

    • Punching is a sure sign of enjoyment. It got me in trouble with my first couple of girlfriends, but I’ve mostly got that under control now.

      • It’s a really weird dichotomy. I like the info I get and some of Prichard’s stories are fun, but they can also both come off as really unlikable.

    • jobber123

      Yeah I just started checking that out too. I was ready for conrad from flairs show. Prichard is so full of shit about so much stuff it makes me want to turn it off at times but on the other hand there is some good info I’ve never heard. The Montreal show is total bullshit though. Skip that.

      I am curious to hear the tna shows though.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    This Angel Soft commercial with the single dad teaching his daughter how to shave her legs was supposed to be touching, I’m sure, but…she doesn’t have an aunt? An older female cousin? And if there was really no one else around, that brings up a lot of other uncomfortable questions.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      My uncle is a single father raising two girls after his wife died. My mother (their aunt) was always the go-to for the more difficult, um, lady questions that came up

    • That sounds very uncomfortable.

    The whole interview felt like a sales pitch in itself. He even compared the process to dating. The first part was a speed date: a quick, 2-minute get-to-know-you thing. If he liked me, I get upgraded to the 1-hour sales pitch (which I was blessed enough to get that). Then they’ll contact me again for another interview. The guy was fast talking, loud, talking about how much money the company
    makes, how much money I’d make, the great places they have conferences.

    Yeah, no thanks. That’s just not my gig.

    • Wade

      Sales is incredibly aggravating.

      Have you looked into like office temping?

    • Six Star TatR!

      I did sales once. I quit after the training week. Fuck that.

      • I remember a similar job interview years ago for selling vacuum cleaners.

        This whole shindig felt like the EXACT same thing, only more upscale.

        • Six Star TatR!

          My interview, they handed out like random items and you had 5 minutes to go away and do a sales pitch. I was given a balloon. I can’t remember what I said but I’m sure it was terrible

      • Robert

        Same here.

    • I once got hired for a sales job when I applied to what I thought was a communications job. I spent a whole day riding around with a little turd who would trade his soul for a halfway decent pair of shoes. Whole thing happened faster than I realized what was going on.

            The problem with excursions to the US is that the guys never get used.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Teddy Hart actually had a great point, if you are willing to tough it out work in Mexico because at the very least you get the opportunity to work in front of large crowds.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    I hate how it apparently makes me a bad fan to question why the Undertaker came on RAW to announce he’d be in the Royal Rumble. He’s a SmackDown guy, and will presumably challenge their brand champion… so why not have him announce on SmackDown during an AJ/Cena confrontation? It’s so nakedly about propping up RAW’s sagging ratings — which has been part of the actual on-screen storylines lately! The stink of desperation permeates everything they do right now.

    • jobber123

      How does that make you a bad fan though?

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        Because I’m either supposed to ignore such things, or stop watching.

      • Yeah, I don’t get that either, but I will say it’s a bit of a nit pick. So, WWE wants to boost Raw’s ratings and decided to get Taker to do it, and he last appeared on SmackDown. it’s… who cares? Why get worked up over something so obviously meaningless?

        • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

          If they don’t care about the separation/rivalry of their brands then why should I?

          • jobber123

            You shouldn’t, the whole split was just to prop up smackdowns ratingsm

          • If you KNOW it’s a ratings grab – something EVERY TV show does from time to time, seriously, what’s the point in getting worked up and annoyed about it? I’m not telling you to stop watching and I’m not saying you shouldn’t point it out, but it just seems silly to harp on it – and it’s not just you, I’ve seen a lot of it this morning.

            I haven’t watched Raw or SmackDown in a couple of months because I stopped caring about the product they’re putting out, so I don’t know how it was handled, but I can’t imagine it was so bad as to cause everyone to lose their shit about it.

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            It gets under one’s skin because it’s such a simple thing to do. Two guys are going to battle for the title, and suddenly they learn the winner potentially has the Undertaker waiting in the wings. It’s called TELLING A STORY and they fumbled the start of it.

          • And this is different than your normal opinion of their storytelling how?

    • Stan Ford

      Also, shouldn’t Shane and Bryan want to threaten a lawsuit over that?

      • Ah yes, because lawsuits and backroom deals are all any fan REALLY cares about.

        • Stan Ford

          Listen, if you’re gonna create a universe, you have to live in it and it has to be consistent.

          • zzzzzzzzzzzzz

            Oh, what? Huh? What’s… Sorry, I fell asleep thinking about another round of potential, “I’M GONNA SUE YOU!” angles.

          • Stan Ford

            You’ll notice that I never said to turn it into a huge angle.

            Heyman once threatened to sue Bischoff when Austin (I think) appeared on Bischoff’s show. It didn’t become a huge thing. There were no courtroom skits. It never went beyond one segment.

            Yet I remember it for reasons my own, one of which I believe to be that this is a realistic way for actual humans to behave.

            If a Raw GM can have a SD talent appear on Raw and the SD leadership is fine with that, then why not AJ on Raw? Cena on Raw? Why not Roman on SD? Why even HAVE a brand split?

          • Was Undertaker drafted last summer?

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            He was on SmackDown in November warning their Survivor Series team that they better win or there’d be hell to pay.

          • Was he drafted last summer?

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            Beats me. I don’t watch WWE.

          • He wasn’t, which means he’s a free agent. He was brought in to SmackDown before Survivor Series to pump the team up, the way Ric Flair does for football and basketball teams.

          • Stan Ford

            I don’t think he was, but he made it clear before SurSer that he was a SD talent.

          • In his heart? Maybe? By a contract? Not so much.

        • Roman Reigns Winky Face

          Vince loves inserting stupid shit like that into the show.

  • RudoWakening

    Best Canadian musician: Neil Young

    • Robert

      As long as his voice isn’t considered an instrument.

    • Death Rollins

      It’s not a long list.

      • RudoWakening

        Him, Rush, Bryan Adams, Devin Townsend, Billy Talent, and all the way at the bottom of the list is Triumph.

    • Wade

      You spelled Bryan Adams wrong.

      • Death Rollins

        I GOT MY FIRST REAL SIX-STRING

    • Andrew Champagne

      I like Neil, but I’m probably in the minority that prefers CSN to CSNY.

    • I’ll take The Band, they were 4/5 Canadian and we claim them. Young is good too though.

  • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    The “sassy maid/butler” trope always bothers me. Like, why wouldn’t you just fire Hazel?

    • Night

      Because she keeps it real, bitch!

    • Dwayne

      Because they like her sassy attitude. Also don’t they usually help raise the kids?

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        I guess. But fuck it, if I want a big piece of pie I’m gonna have pie.

    • They’re part of the family!

    • Death Rollins

      Geoffrey was a damn fine role model for the Banks kids.

  • jobber123

    I totally forgot I was supposed to have the day off for a mandatory audit so I got the rest of the day off. I work right across from the a mall with a movie theater that has limited 9am matinees. I’m at Assassins creed, I have very low expectations. But it was either this or rouge one that I’ve seen twice. Anyways I’m literally the only person in this theater. I don’t think I’ve seen a movie that didn’t have at least two or 3 other people in the theater. Even at these 9am matinees. Not a strong sign for the franchise.

  • Wade

    It’s really interesting looking up YL excursions, just to see who went where and when.

    Kurosawa from Nitro was Nakanishi on his excursion!

  • Six Star TatR!

    Crash Test Dummies were a very underrated Canadian band. They had lots of very nice songs

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      Mmhmm

  • Death Rollins

    Canada’s greatest export: Phil Hartman.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      Worst: Beiber.

      • Death Rollins

        There’s probably someone worse, but it’s hard to find one. I’m usually a pop music nerd and even I can’t take most of his stuff.

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      Also about half of the SNL cast during the mid 80s-mid 90s

      • Death Rollins

        Canada produces damn fine comedians, I’ll give them that.

    • Aaron

      I remember him from such shows as Saturday Night Live and Newsradio.

  • Ioan Morris

    I liked that all the guys in the UK tourney presser wore suits. Felt right.

  • Death Rollins

    Canada also gave us one of the best MST3K episodes, at least: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abNGJLSzWGI

  • My friend and I recorded a podcast a couple nights ago talking about 2016, Christmas and what 2017 holds for us. That and I talk about Wrestle Kingdom 11 starting about 30 minutes in. And while coughing a lot…..ENJOY!

    • Night

      *My friend and I…

      • …..grrrrrrrrrr, fine I’ll edit it

        • Night

          I think we would all appreciate it if you did so promptly.

  • Six Star TatR!

    Here’s a really great Crash Test Dummies song. It’s only two minutes so you have no excuse not to listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcsI0Xcaak4

  • Wade

    Akira Maeda on WoS wasn’t an excursion was it?

  • Diddly

    According to Bryan Alvarez, it has been 23 straight Raws since the return of Glacierlina videos began airing.

    • Ioan Morris

      It’s a cruel rib.

    • Death Rollins

      I’m genuinely wondering about the holdup. Are they trying to do an Eva Marie thing? Because Emma performing actually has more value than Emma not performing.

    • Night

      Seems reminiscent of the Brodus Clay era.

      Hmm…could we see the debut of a She-Funkasaurus?

    • Emmalina….blood runs cold! Except in my penis, that runs white hot

  • Death Rollins

    Really struggling to think of some Canadian bands I like now. They had some okay punk bands, I guess. They’re not the U.S. or U.K. or Australia in music output, that’s for damn sure.

    • AnInternetToughGuy

      Nickelba—hahahahahahaha.
      nope, couldn’t finish that.

    • Other than AC/DC and the guys that did Down Under, who are some Aussie bands?

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      There’s a disproportionate love for Canadian acts in Canada, only because our broadcast laws force the Radio to have X% of their programming be Canadian.

      I have no idea which ones are actually huge in the states, other than knowing that Rush definenetly is and Trooper super fucking isn’t in spite of having hits up here in multiple decades.

      • Death Rollins

        Our Lady Peace had some hits in the U.S. spread out over a few albums. And obviously Nickelback somehow got huge here.

        …That’s all I got.

        • OLP is my vote for favorite Canadian band.

          I’ll say it… Bare Naked Ladies comes in at 2.

          • Death Rollins

            D’oh! Forgot about BNL. Despite how gimmicky they can get, I dig a lot of their stuff. I’ll Be That Girl is such a great song that people never talk about.

  • Diddly

    Holy shit Stephanie really buried Bayley AND Sasha last night?

    • Wait what?

      • Diddly

        There was a segment where Steph dressed down Bayley and Sasha, saying Sasha isn’t a legit boss and she’s just a gimmick, then said Bayley should never call her “Steph” and they were both threatened with firings unless they got the HELL out of her office.

        • Of COURSE she did.

    • maskedcabana

      Not really.

  • Robert

    Canada did give us Alanis Morrissette. She got rather fine as she got older.

  • Facts

    Was at the eye doctor this morning and tried contacts for the 1st time. Yeah I am just going to stick with glasses.

  • I finished reading Volume 1 of Mark Waid’s run on Flash last night. Definitely looking forward to Volume 2 with The Return of Barry Allen. Most of it was pretty good.

    Except for the last issue, The Flash Annual #5, involving the big Eclipso event that took place in all the annuals that year. And it was awful, especially compared to the stuff before it. The dialogue felt stilted and forced. The story only nominally made sense. The art was atrocious and didn’t help make the story make any sense. It was co-written with someone else, which partly explains why it was terrible. I wonder if an editor got someone else to re-write the script after Waid handed it in.

    • God, why would they include that in a collection like that? Seems like a stupid thing to throw in a completely unrelated Annual event comic like that…

      • I would assume for completionist reasons, since it was during Waid’s run. No doubt they’ll include his Bloodlines annual in a later volume. Though to be fair there, Argus shows up a few times during his run.

        • Sometimes, you’ve just gotta lose issues here and there.

          • You’ll get no argument from me on that. It also included Annual #4, the Armaggedon annuals event. That one wasn’t as bad. Kind of touching, actually.

    • Dwayne

      I heard things about this run but haven’t read it. I liked Mark’s Marvel stuff like Fantastic 4, Captain America and Daredevil

      • You can definitely tell his writing has improved since then, but it’s still a lot of fun. There was a two-issue story in this with Aquaman that was surprisingly fun.

      • Death Rollins

        It’s a good run, although his Marvel stuff outshines it.

        • He has some good DC stuff, too. Kingdom Come, Superman Birthright, JLA: Year One. Even his JLA run after Morrison wasn’t bad, though it doesn’t end on a high note.

          • Wait, what was bad about his JLA run? I don’t remember his run ending poorly… although I also can’t remember what the last story was…

          • Oh, don’t get me wrong. It was good for the most part. The Batman traitor one, Queen of Fables, Divided We Fall (where they split; one of my favourite JLA stories ever).

            But it ended with the White Martian invasion, which started out well enough, but it got really shit by the end. Didn’t help that Hitch stopped doing the art at the end.

          • Ah, that was Waid? I assumed that was the guy who came after.

          • Nope, that was the tail end of his run.

          • Death Rollins

            Ooh, forgot about Year One. That’s a fun book. I’m not a KC fan, though. Birthright was decent, if I remember.

          • Wait.. you’re NOT a KC fan? What the hell is wrong with you?!?!?

          • ^This guy gets it.

          • Death Rollins

            Bias alert: I hate Alex Ross’s cadaver art.

            But aside from that I think it’s a dreary slog without any interesting character beats that’s way too reverent and…sane, I guess. Like, Alan Moore’s Twilight of the Superheroes would’ve probably been bad, but there was some really crazy shit in there that would’ve at least been interesting to explore. Real texture to its nonsense. KC’s an old man rant.

          • The crazy shit in Twilight is what would have made it bad, I think.

          • Death Rollins

            Possibly. Some of it might have been very off-putting or too weird to function. But I honestly think that would’ve been truer to the spirit of the DC Universe than anything. It’s not like Marvel where most of the best-known characters and concepts were created by a small group. DC’s all over the place. KC feeling so sanded down was an issue for me (although I just didn’t like the story in general. A lot of the backstory just didn’t work, and characters acting fairly out of character).

          • Not a KC fan? How come?

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            Get a rope…

    • Johnny Clever

      Man, there were years where the DC annuals were just ass. Whatever they were running the year they had the four Supermen post-Doomsday was the worst. Some shit vampire/monster thing. They’re included in the Reign of Superman TPB that was put out recently and the art and writing are just terrible.

      • Dude, that was Bloodlines, which is very much a guilty pleasure for me. TOTALLY 90s and I sure as hell won’t defend it, but I dug the hell out of it back in the day.

        I was a stupid teenager. =p

        • Johnny Clever

          Yes, Bloodlines, thank you. And yeah, in the 90s I probably dug the hell out of it, because it read like something 14 year old me scribbled onto the back of an Algebra handout.

          • I mean, don’t get me wrong, looking back, almost all the characters they created (one for each Annual) was terrible. The ONLY saving grace from Bloodlines is we got Hitman out of it.

            Though I did dig the year the Annuals did the Elseworlds gimmick. Again, really hit and miss, but there were some fun ones in that. I LOVED a post-apocalyptic one that ran through I think Action Comics Annual and Superboy Annual.

          • Johnny Clever

            That year was amazing. Some killer ideas that could really have sustained further development:

            Green Lanten in WW2 Germany and the Nazis use the ring to conquer Ameican and John Stewart becomes the new GL and fights Nazi Guy Gardner.

            Superman comes to earth during Colonial American times, helps the British put down the rebellion, and then his great-great-grandson has to kill him.

            The post-apocalyptic one you mentioned, where they killed like everyone off practically, and Superboy became the new Superman.

            And so so many more great stories.

            I was also a big fan of the Year One year.

          • I look at those Annuals (and other Elseworlds) and wonder why people go so crazy for Superman: Red Son. It’s just another Elseworld where he crashed somewhere else on Earth. It’s been done before.

            Yeah, Year One was fun, too! Then they kind of got bad, like a…Scorched Earth theme? Like where everything takes places hundreds or thousands of years later? I don’t remember a single good issue from that. And they had a Pulp theme another year. Most of those were pretty bad, too.

          • Johnny Clever

            Yeah, the scorched earth thing was so boring. Like, why do I care about the Flash of three thousand years from now?

          • Um… Really with Red Son? As far as the story, it’s probably the best-written, with a nice little twist.

          • Johnny Clever

            I feel like DC got into a rut, and are maybe still in it, where they’re like obsessed with killing Superman and/or making Superman evil or at least a bad guy.

          • I don’t think they’re in that rut any more, actually.

          • Johnny Clever

            Yeah, hopefully with the death of N52 Superman (who still might come back…it’s what Superman does, after all) they seem to have re-discovered the joy of Pure Good Guy Superman.

          • Sorry I didn’t see this sooner. Haven’t checked Disqus.

            Anyway, Red Son’s fine. It’s good. But it’s severely overrated.

        • Death Rollins

          Bloodlines gave us Hitman! Top THAT, Eclipso and Armageddon 2001!

          • Hey now, Armaggedon gave us MONARCH! Yeah!

            (Who I had to google to remember his name)

          • Death Rollins

            WHO’S TOTALLY NOT CAPTAIN ATOM YOU WERE WRONG CHATROOM GUYS

  • Wade

    Who was even running Central States in 1988 when Chono got sent there?

    • Geigel, I’d think…

      • Yeah, apparently other than a few months under Crockett (mid 86-early 87), it was Geigel’s territory from 1958 to 1988.

      • Aaron

        He was awful.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Didnt Crockett own it by that point?

  • jobber123

    Hollywood has turned the knights Templar more times than Vince has turned big show!

        I’ve seen so many movies where they are bad guys or good guys. It seems to switch everytime to.

        • Death Rollins

          Tombs of the Blind Dead, baybee!

    • Facts

      I will find that vast treasure of theirs.

  • A Wrestling god

    Random thought: would it have saved Brian Pillman’s life if they’d have kept him out of the ring like Rick Rude or Mr Perfect?

    • Night

      Those guys died, too.

      • Six Star TatR!

        Oh shit. How about if they dressed Pillman up as the Blue Blazer and had him rappel from the ceiling?

    • Aaron

      Maybe. Pillman’s dad died early of heart problems also as I recall. Brian didn’t help himself, though.

      • A Wrestling god

        I wonder if a lot of his pain killer addiction was from trying to wrestle though? He had more value as a corner man or on commentary.

  • In my graduating year, two different students chose “Life is a highway. I want to ride it all night long” as their yearbook quote.

    I wonder if anyone else has used it in the 25 years since?

    • I bet they were the cool kids.

    • Night

      I use it, bro. Every morning when I look myself in the mirror, bro.

    • I don’t think anybody remembers that song, both the original or the Rascal Flatts version

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        I got in a fight with my GF over it.

    • Diddly

      We didn’t have yearbook quotes. They just threw your picture in alphabetical order and did stupid gimmicks for the book.

      • That’s horrible! I spent weeks agonizing over what to use for mine. Then I ended up misquoting the author.

      • DAJackson7

        Same here, but it was a small school. My Graduating class was 18

    • I liked that Mad Mad World album. A few good tracks.

  • jobber123

    It’s gotten awful reviews but 10 minutes in this movie is a good popcorn flick. Although I’ve never played the games so I have no preconceived notions on how it should go.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    Received probably the best compliment I’ve ever been given, when a co-worker said for months she wondered who Nick Miller from New Girl reminded her of. Yesterday it hit her. Yours truly.

    For the fucking win.

    • Johnny Clever

      When I had a random friend who said she totally hit on who I reminded her of and realized it was Nick Miller, it was one of the proudest moments of my life.

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        Yeah, well, I’m like a buff Nick Miller. You should see the workout I did on New Year’s Eve bro.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    It’s Monday, and that can mean only one thing: It’s time to put the wife in the kitchen, grab some titties, drink until you’re offensive, and enjoy the latest Man Movie Encyclopedia entry.

    • Andrew Champagne

      It’s Tuesday.

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        What

  • Robert

    Our high school “senior song” was “End of the Road”. To this day I despise that song. I had to have heard it 7,623 times that year.

    • Boyz II Men is a bit sappy for me about 98% of the time.

    • Bones

      I have no clue what mine was and I don’t talk regularly to anyone I graduated with.

    • We did the theme from Friends, over my strenuous objections (I was on the committee to choose the song).

      • Death Rollins

        Oh man, my condolences there.

        • I was so annoyed.

          • Death Rollins

            Hell, I’d be annoyed if my class selected that as “Best Theme Song from the TV Show ‘Friends'”

    • Death Rollins

      We didn’t have a senior song, but I think the year I graduated the big “Shit’s ending, yo” song was either that Vitamin C graduation song, or Eve 6’s “Here’s to the Night,” which shamelessly ripped off John Waite’s “Missing You”.

    • End of the Road was truly Bottom-of-the-Barrell Boyz II Men.

      If you had to choose one, and I’m guessing this was before 1995, then you guys needed to pick It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday. Or Uhhhh Ahhh

      • Robert

        It made them ALL the money, but yeah, it’s definitely not their best, artistically.

        • Yeah, and to think, after 13 weeks at number one, it got overshadowed by three bigger hits.

          Though if I’ll Make Love to You existed when you graduated you really should’ve pushed for that

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Ours was the theme song from Cheers as a joke suggestion we ran all the way with. Our senior class president was a guy who dropped out of school as another joke we ran all the way with. We took all our jokes a bit far.

    • DAJackson7

      Fun fact: Ours was the DX theme!

    • The Silver Fox

      I think ours was Don’t You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds.

    My yearbook quote probably would have been a horrible, embarrassing wrestling quote.

      Mine was from Waiting for Godot, so it could be worse: you could’ve been really, really pretentious.

      Spelt wrong by some shitty editor. “…and that’s the bottom lane!”

      Are you in bed making a kissyface? Maybe with your dog at your feet?

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        Nah, it’s usually in the car. Today’s was, “The dream is free. The hustle is sold separately.”

    • Devin Harris

      You are interneting the way God intended

  • It’s funny. During that job interview sales pitch today, I grew more and more cynical about it as the guy kept talking for the whole hour. I didn’t even try hiding it. And I think he knew by the way he kept looking back at me. I wasn’t giving a stink-eye, just a “I really don’t trust any of this and shouldn’t even be here” face.

  • Bones

    My senior quote was:

    “In heaven all the interesting people are missing.”

  • I think I appeared in one high school yearbook. I had a terrible haircut and was wearing a weed leaf necklace.

    • Roman Reigns Winky Face

      That was allowed in Canada?

      • You ever been to Canada, bro?

        • Roman Reigns Winky Face

          It’s a place I’d like to visit one day.

      • Six Star TatR!

        they all have terrible haircuts in Canada

        • It’s true. I had a mullet in high school (’96-’97 is). Short on the top, long in the back. When I slicked my hair back and wore a leather jacket, my friend said I looked like Venezuelan drug lord.

        • Roman Reigns Winky Face

          Canadians are genetically superior to Americans, thus they cannot possibly have bad haircuts.

        • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

          You motherCanucker.

  • Robert

    Heh, we all thought we were so clever and smart and savvy as high school seniors. I imagine it was insufferable for parents and teachers.

  • Devin Harris

    I dropped out of school in 11th grade. it’s always awkward when anyone asks me what year did I graduate

    • Me too.

      1999, I don’t remember either. I remember taking senior pictures but I don’t know if I ever got them into the yearbook, and I worked on the yearbook

      Even while it was happening I understood that high school meant nothing.

    • juvydriver

      I went to high school in a backwater town (450 total students in 9-12th grade) and I didn’t even realize yearbook quotes were a thing. I just signed my name. Graduated in 1994.

  • Wade

    Shinya Hashimoto having his excursion in Stampede is the opposite of surprising.

    • Death Rollins

      I love that Japanese wrestlers go on foreign excursions before settling down, like they’re Amish kids or something.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    I once attended some stupid church function that was out in the woods and got a ride back with a middle-aged couple and their sons who were a few years older than me. I asked them what school they went to and they were both dropouts. Their parents seemed weirdly okay with it. They didn’t have jobs and they both lived at home.

  • Robert

    It’s interesting watching my 13-year old stepson walk around like he’s got all these new ways to get over on us, like we didn’t do the same shit. Kids are funny.

    • Roman Reigns Winky Face

      Tell him his mom is a real groaner and ask if he ever hears it.

    • Every generation thinks that they’re the first to do everything, and that they alone “get it.”

  • Class of 2004…and I don’t think we had quotes or a song!

  • Diddly

    We did have a vote on a Class Song! I think it was either Air Force Ones or Fergalicious.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    It’s a bit of a secret, but I love me some action films….

    So, I thought I’d try out Fast & Furious 7.

    Are you FUCKING kidding me?!

    Like, how can they really make these movies and be so deadpan serious the whole time? They’re so over-the-top and stupid, but never in a “winkwink” like most action movies. It’s so insane the world these assholes live in, because it’s suppose to be reality, but I’m expecting fucking Thor to show up. And Jesus….when he says “I’m more of a Corona man” and then Kurt Russell breaks out a Corona ice bucket with Coronas in it. I mean, I would have rather them ran a 30 second ad than have such embarrassingly ridiculous product placement.

    Boo, boo to these films.

    • That movie appears to be about car racing, and so I can’t imagine why anyone would watch it, but evidently they did. I recently learned that there have been sequels.

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        Sounds like you don’t even watch Man Movies bro!

      • DAJackson7

        They aren’t car racing anymore, now it’s a heist franchise

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Found a really swank Punisher: War Journal collection on the Marvel app but they want $25 for it. I feel weird paying so much for something for an app. Should I just nut up or am I justified in feeling this way.?

    • jobber123

      Is it the whole run?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s the first nineteen issues in one graphic novel. Then there is another one with the first eight issues for fifteen.

        • jobber123

          25 bucks feels high but that was a cool comic.

    • I’ve never paid for an app.

    • Death Rollins

      I suppose you could always READ that COMIC somewhere ONLINE if you’re hesitant .TO pay for the app collection.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Ah hahaha…I know what your shooting at. Could I transfer these pilfered comics to my tablet?

        • Death Rollins

          I’m not sure – I think there’s just a reader embedded in the site.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            Oh. Yeah. That’s not the same.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

    Honestly, if you gave me a vote for WWE MVP of 2016, I’d give it to Ryan Ward.

    If you take him out of the equation, there is no compelling, regularly watchable WWE programming available other than Network archives.

  • Robert

    I won’t lie – sometimes I am glad to see the boy fail. Not because I wish ill on him, but because sometimes he thinks he’s so fucking smart and doesn’t want to listen. So watching him fail and more importantly, LEARN, is good for him.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      Watching my son fall, literally fall down, is one of my favorite things ever.

          Oh I’ll be dead from lung cancer long before then.

  • Class of 2003. My quotes were awesome. I actually decided not to list any of my high school activities or accomplishments in the yearbook just so I could have extra room for quotes. I was also the most quoted by other people.

  • Dear God. So I had to google Monarch’s name because I couldn’t remember the villain’s name from Armaggedon 2001.

    Anyway, the Wikipedia page about it also mentions Geoff John’s JSA run, which included stuff with Hawk & Dove, trying to “fix” the continuity. Me, I remember what a mess he made of that and Dr. Fate to the point that it didn’t make any sense at all.

    Then I read this paragraph, which is so convoluted, it gives me a headache:

    “A storyline in JSA would later reveal that the ending of Armageddon 2001 had been faked by Mordru. He had created an illusion of Dove being murdered by a future Hawk/Monarch in order to drive the current Hawk insane. He then took control of Hawk and used him to impregnate Dove so she would give birth to a child that would inherit all the powers of the Lords of Chaos and Order. Mordru cast a spell on Dove that kept her in a comatose state for years. She did give birth to a child but before Mordru could possess the child’s body it was instead inhabited by a reincarnated Hector Hall who aged the body to adulthood and became the new Doctor Fate. Much later while searching for his wife Lyta, Hector would discover Dove and bring her out of Mordru’s spell revealing the truth of these events. She would then discover that her sister had inherited the Hawk powers after the death of Hank Hall.”

    Class of 2003

    Our class song was Green Day and I won class Clown.

    Unfortunately there were not many pictures of me in the yearbook. They ran Yearbook at the same period as Honors English at my school, so none of the smart, popular kids had any say in putting the Yearbook together.

    It was run entirely by the dumb, poor dirt kids and had a ridiculous amount of pictures of scum kids hanging out on the back stairs of the school and on the train tracks.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      So…it had pictures of the actual cool kids, gotcha.

      • Wade

        They were all there the next year too!

        • Marvkie Post – #10

          I like that you still have all this pent-up judgement on people from high school lol

      • Dwayne

        Right? The kids he described ARE the cool kids everywhere else

    • Death Rollins

      Our yearbook was run by the group of girls who were desperately trying to make our school into a popularity contest. They won a prize no one else was competing for.

      There were not many pictures of Death Rollins in that yearbook.

    • There were kids in my high school that took part in things. I never got that.

    • DAJackson7

      Our whole school K-12 was maybe 300 people. Everyone was in the yearbook.

    • Bones
      • DAJackson7

        I’m willing to bet he tried to get that through as “cums” first

    • Diddly

      Our yearbook and morning announcements video program were run by the same people, so the same girls were featured in everything.

      1992 here, Damn I can relate. Kids these days. They don’t let you live, they don’t let you eat.

  • Andrew Champagne

    Class of 2006 here. I was voted second-tallest in my class because I was 6’5″. The guy who won was 6’8″ and went into the Marines. They didn’t do quotes for us; our class was the group that paid for the stuff everyone else did. We didn’t get a quotes section, we didn’t get proms in cool locations (the ONLY place they’d allow was the cafeteria of the local community college because every other place had a hotel), and we had a ton of restrictions placed on us that other classes didn’t have to deal with.

    • I’m not sure that “tallest” is a title that requires a vote.

      • Death Rollins

        Biased judges, geographically specific measuring systems, extraplanar geometry…Lots of things could influence the competition.

      • Andrew Champagne

        We had many very weird categories.

      I’m class of 06 to and my only Class of 06 memory is the black girls in the hallway going “Oh Six!! Oh Six!!”

        My high school experience wasn’t bad. I did a lot of the student media stuff; TV station, newspaper, PA announcing the sports teams for some money, etc. Being visible wasn’t a bad thing.

  • Facts

    I don’t miss high school.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      I don’t even remember it, who gives a shit about four easy years before you can even do anything? The only people that let it be their formative years were the people that peaked during them.

        Oh my God that avatar. I was actually watching Night Court last night. And your statement is 100% accurate.

    • Dwayne

      I don’t see why anyone should. If that was your peak, then it’s kinda sad.

    • Bones

      The only thing I miss is reduced responsibility

    • I miss hanging out with my friends, playing video games, reading comics, and the tabletop wrestling RPG we all played.

    • Wade

      I enjoyed it, but I happily moved on.

      • Brian_Bayless

        I smoked a ton of pot and went to a lot of parties in high school.

        Got it out of my system early.

        People who “peaked” in high school is some sad shit though.

        • Facts

          My wife did the same and I was the exact opposite.

          We didn’t hang around the same circles in high school.

          • Brian_Bayless

            20 people went to out 15 year reunion apparently.

            My friends wife, who is from NY, said all the girls my friend said were hot in high school were all ugly.

          • Facts

            Yeah they gain 100 pounds and end up with 5 kids from 4 different men.

        • Wade

          Yup. Partied a lot like that but happily became an adult.

    High school was a thing that happened. My major regret is staying home for college. Also now.

      such a serious place

    • ONITA100

      A lot of people have that regret iv noticed. I joined the Army so it kind of takes that role of leaving home

    • Bones

      Going away or to a big college wouldn’t have been good for me because I would have partied myself out

    • DAJackson7

      I was the first person in over ten years to not go to the local university or community college. Good choice

    • The Silver Fox

      Despite having a well regarded college (William & Mary) right in our backyard, neither myself nor my three sisters went there.

      I’m surprised they’re already having Okada and Suzuki wrestle.

      • Ioan Morris

        For the most part, because there are only so many slots for an IWGP match in the year, they don’t hold anything back, save for whatever’s going to be at WK.

        • Aaron

          It does make for an interesting setup, as Suzuki could win it.

          • Ioan Morris

            Absolutely. And then Omega and Okada would both be gunning to win the New Japan Cup.

    • ONITA100

      I like that main event

      That’s only one of the two cards. The second one is even better.

    • I did. Dunno if I’d say I “enjoyed” myself. It was fine.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    In my day we listened to music recorded on magnetic tapes, which you played on a box that you hung on your waist. Each tape was only 90 minutes long, so you’d have to carry spares in your pocket or a backpack. The tape player was powered by disposable batteries that you’d replace every few hours; or rechargable ones that you’d have to recharge at home (the charger being too big to carry around with you).

    We had a game in high school. It was called “Steal My Buddy’s Bookbag and Throw it on Top of low overhang of the School.”

    He’d have to shimmy up a pole to get it. There’s some good childhood memories in the various distractions we’d create to get the bookbag away.

  • Brian_Bayless

    The best was I was at Panera Bread last year and a girl I went to HS there was pregnant and had two kids with her husband there. She was a total bitch in HS and thought she was hot. She’s ugly now and when he food was ready, her husband had the buzzer and told her to get it and she did with the most miserable look on her face.

    She peaked in HS

    • Some people do.

    • Did you think she was hot in HS?

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Provide pictures if you have them.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Not particulary, no. She had a weird face and built like a bean pole.

        Total bitch too.

    • Miko363

      Spoiler alert to the youngsters out there:

      The “average to decent” girls in high school generally end up being the best looking in 10 years. The hot ones peak in high school and come back to the middle of the pack. They’re still good looking but not head and shoulders above the rest.

      Be nice to the decent ones.

      • Brian_Bayless

        The hottest ones now are the ones who no one paid attention to much at all.

      • Philippe Tca

        Or you know. Be nice to everyone and after five years, everyone calms the hell down.

        Although it was weird. At my 15 year reunion, I had no idea who ANY of the people were. I had a small group of friends, but after I went to college, everyone just sort of dropped out of my sphere. But EVERYONE knew who I was and everyone, including some formerly hot bitchy girls, seemed excited to see me.

  • jobber123

    I would enjoy going to my high school reunions but I live on the other side of the country so it’s just too expensive and inconvenient.

    • ONITA100

      We just had our 10 year which I didn’t attend. Judging from the Facebook photos I’m glad I didn’t. Like 40 people showed and not one person I had any inclination to talk with

      I’m across the country as well. No chance I’m going to buy plane tickets to see people I tolerated 10 years ago.

    Also, has social media made reunions kinda obsolete? I can just look on Facebook when I want to see what my classmates are up to. (Spoiler alert: It’s children.) None of that is interesting when I’m already wasting my time, it’s not gonna be more interesting in person.

    • Adam Moore

      Pretty much, yeah.

    H.S. was fine. I played sports and knew different groups. I got along with people but I didn’t really like a lot of them that much. I felt like I had to dumb down to their level since I was used to hanging around adults. I had a different mentality.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      My best friend and I very much had a mentality of, like, just keep your head down and get through it. We were 100% focused on just getting to college so we could get laid. And then the bastard came out and ruined a lot of strategies I had been devising for those years.

      Some of the games were fun. Story convoluted though

      • jobber123

        Is the apple in the game or is this a movie exclusive plot?

        • Rowlf

          The apple is a big part of the game. Bones is right, the games are really fun, but the overarching story is whacko.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      Story gets so convoluted they literally abandon it.

      The games also become the derivative of themselves thing they usually do when they have yearly release cycle.

      I wouldn’t jump in now.

        Ha, funny, me too. She was goddamn gorgeous.

    • You should make her work her way to get an A.

    • ONITA100

      I have memories of my 10th/11th and 12th grade English teachers.

      My 10th/11th grade English teacher was decent looking and my friend (who was black) kept saying he was going to fuck her and put a baby in her….wellllllll… she gets pregnant and when she returned the next year after maternity leave, puts her new family photo on the desk. And motherfucker, that baby was half black. Her white husband I guess didn’t notice? My friend didn’t nail her , some other black guy did, just the fucking irony on the whole thing.

      My 12th grade English teacher never wore panties and showed her pussy off to the boys routinely thru the year.

      • Death Rollins

        Holy fuck did you go to school in the Hot for Teacher video?

        • ONITA100

          Hahaha. She was a total skank. Gap tooth, slutty outfits, touching the boys shoulders. I knew a guy who said she laid her boobs on his arm while talking to him, etc

            High school boys have done more work for less.

    • Dwayne

      I’m not gonna lie man, when I see some of these 15 year old boys who sleep with their teachers most of the time the teacher is hot. I can’t help but think about teachers I wish would have done that with me back in the day.

  • Theberzerker #HUSStag

    Aside from Seth majorly cooling off as a face, they really need to do more work on this HHH/Rollins feud if the match really is set in stone for Mania. It’s completely unrelatable. Oh, you’re upset b/c management handpicked someone else other than you to be golden boy? Boo fucking hoo. That’s a match that could be really damn good but as of right now I give zero fucks about it.

    • Is HHH going over? That’s all he cares about.

    • Rollins should be in the Andre Battle Royal this year, considering his level of overness right now. Who could possibly give a fuck about HHH/Rollins? Triple H has only ever been as over as the guy he’s wrestling, and Rollins is a DUD. I’m actually shocked Triple H hasn’t politically maneuvered his way out of this match already. It’s dead on arrival.

      • Theberzerker #HUSStag

        Yeah but Sheamus wasn’t very over in 2010 either. The match will probably happen, this just means HHH wins.

        • Sheamus in 2010 was in a much better position than Seth Rollins in 2017.

  • Wade

    We only had like 60 kids a grade in a rural community in my school.

      Did you pull it off?

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      That you went to a tiny school makes a ton of sense.

    • DAJackson7

      dude we had a third of that in our grades

      • The Silver Fox

        And I had something like 600 in my graduating class.

        • DAJackson7

          There wasn’t that many in our whole district

    • I don’t think that we had that many at my school. We usually had 2 classes per grade and they were always around 20 kids or so per class.

      • Oh, for some reason I read that as grade school. If you’re talking high school than we had way more. Around 400 I think.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      So what you’re saying is you ate alone.

      I had a few that I might have considered, but outright hot? Not really.

    • RedStorm

      3 in HS 1 in college.

    • There were a couple that I found attractive but I have low standards. The TA’s on the other hand…woo

    • The Rabid One

      One really hot teacher and two medium rare teachers in High school.
      The hot was cool, she had no issues.
      The two medium rare
      One left because she uncovered an affair between two teachers and one was married. Those teachers had seniority and the male teacher was in charge of something, cannot remember.
      The other left because of rumors she slept with students
      This was an all boy school during the late 80s and early 90s

    • ONITA100

      I took Japanese in college for a semester, Christ I wanted to pound my teacher into oblivion

    Not a partier at all. Not necessarily a loner, but never minded being alone if that makes sense. Had one or two good friends and a couple of acquaintances and that was enough. Nowadays, I keep more to myself because I’m just worn out and who needs other people’s drama and shit?

  • RedStorm

    The faces that Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn made during Streep’s speech looked like 2 guys who thought they were out for drinks and didn’t realize it was a presentation for a time share opportunity.

    • PhilStubington

      Mel would have been happier if Streep had spent the time complaining about the Jews.

      • RedStorm

        That’s The Jews, thank you very much.

    • Jackson Smith

      The picture being shared on social media? Vince looks pissed, Mel just looks like he’s keeping an eye out for the waitress as he needs a 12th refill.

      • RedStorm

        Yea that one lol

    • Is Vaughn a Trump supporter or something?

      • Macklin Man Without Password

        Probably just an actor who thought he was going to be at a light and breezy Awards show.

        • Eh, nothing is light and breezy anymore. Nor should it be. Football games have become venues for political protest now. It’s just a necessity of the times we are facing.

          • Macklin Man Without Password

            I think an escape is more a necessity than another venue in which to predict the end of the world. There’s Twitter, 90 different talk shows, Twitter, Facebook, twitter, is that not enough to where forms of escape have to be tainted by the tears of the fallen?

          • I hear what you’re saying, but we still have so many people who are refusing to get involved and participate in the democratic process, burying their heads in the sand. Just badger them endlessly in every possible medium until they agree to play their part and follow through on their civic duty, I say. Nobody should be allowed to escape what’s happening right now.

          • And this is how the Democrat Party will die. Pissing off everyone they need to push them over the top in key states because a few people want EVERYONE to be as miserable and shitty as they are.

          • The Democratic Party died in 2010. I hear your point, but we’re through the looking glass with respect to angry/miserable liberals in this country (I am one of them). I don’t think it’s a matter of people wanting others to be miserable, but more so wanting people to start paying attention and giving a shit about what’s happening right now politically. I can’t tell you how many people I work with don’t even follow politics because they’re too busy talking about reality TV and fantasy football. I hate them.

          • And eventually, those people will start REALLY making you angry by going vote… FOR THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU WANT. Just to piss you off even more.

          • I mean that’s essentially what we just saw. Trump won the Presidency thanks to stupid, uninformed people voting out of spite. Doesn’t mean you stop trying to have the conversation because it inconveniences Jethro’s football game.

          • jobber123

            She came off like a total idiot trashing football and mma though.

          • What did she say about Football and MMA? I actually haven’t seen the speech yet.

      • RedStorm

        I don’t think so. He just seemed really uncomfortable. There’s been a shit ton of Hollywood backlash to what she said once the dust settled.

        • Well, respectfully, fuck all of those people. Their opinions are wrong.

      • jobber123

        They looked like I do if raw comes on my tv.

      • Death Rollins

        Possibly. He’s apparently more conservative. Although he might just have been seeing the Twitterstorm in his head and dreading it all.

        • The hell does he care what people say about Meryl Streep?

          • Death Rollins

            I was thinking more “tired of the insanity.” But that’s assuming he’s a relatively reasonable breed of conservative, which might not be the case. I would still bank more on him being sane than, say, Gibson.

    • Bruce Chung

  • The Polish Hammer

    I wasn’t around for the live discussion, but was anyone else bothered by Strowman backing away and wincing every time Rollins swung a chair at him? At this point, Strowman shouldn’t be booked to sell or show fear to anyone. He should, after some higher profile wins, challenge for the Universal title and only lose by being knocked the fuck out.

    • Just reading about it bothered me. Strowman should’ve killed him

    • Death Rollins

      I know they’re stuck reinventing their own wheel, but holy shit a beast like that should not be afraid of SETH (freakin’!) ROLLINS.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    My school & hometown sat out much of the 80’s in terms of fashions and trends. Our movie theater burned down in ’79, and cable TV didn’t come til about ’85, so it was like we were stuck in the seventies for an extra half-decade. Oddly enough people embraced the 1950’s nostalgia that hit in the 80’s, so we looked like The Town That Time Forgot, until about 1988, when we slipped back into the timestream of the approaching 90’s.

    Driving through there a few months ago it still looks pretty much the same, almost 30 years later.

    • We had a fair cohort of Asians, not many blacks. Most of them all hung around together at the front of the school looking tough.

      • ONITA100

        That’s what our blacks did . They had the front of the library on lockdown. Couldn’t even walk by it without getting harassed but luckily I was “in” with a good portion of them so I was always fine

    • For the longest time we had one black kid…then during our senior year we had 5!

    • The Polish Hammer

    • ONITA100

      We were probably 80/20.

      We used to be exclusively white but they opened the school up so other city kids could join

      Our sports teams DID improve though

    • Wade

      We had one black kid and one Asian girl. But her parents owned the Chinese restaurant.

    • Death Rollins

      A few black kids, a few Puerto Rican kids whose families probably trickled over from Amsterdam, and then a whole bunch of redneck white kids.

    • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

      My high school was probably 70/30 in terms of diversity, and twenty years later that number has definitely flipped.

    • RedStorm

      Majority white with the rest evenly split between Spanish and black. A few Asian kids. My school topped out at 450 kids

      • The Silver Fox

        Much like my school, except there were 2,500 students at my high school.

    • Bruce Chung

      I think I saw like 10 black kids in schools from LA surbs to Boulder, CO to Albuquerque, NM.

      Then when I moved to Atlanta, there was like 10 black kids per class.

    • Up until high school, we had the “average” mix of black/white for the school’s area. Catholic high school, senior class of 186:

      Three Black, one Asian, couple Hispanic IIRC.

      I’d really need to look back through the yearbook to finalize those numbers, they’re the ones O remember.

        I believe he gave it “*****+”

    • Ioan Morris

      4/3/89 Observer: 3/18 Landover, MD – Capital Centre

      “Steamboat pinned Flair in 32 minutes of a match which blew the top off the five star scale. This match was significantly better than their Chicago match and deserved something like 5½ to 6 stars as a fair grade. Those in the know were amazed at how good this match was, particularly when they realized they had another match later that night in Philadelphia (which wasn’t as good, but was still a fantastic match)”

      • ONITA100

        Awesome

    In reality the speech that Streep gave was not really that brave, she simply regurgitated the Hollywood line that they incessantly believe in. She just added the insult to football and MMA because reasons.

            But there are times when I just wanna see some shit being kicked.

          • The Rabid One

            Agreed but there are numerous foreigners there, so Anderson Silva should say hello to her.

        • Bruce Chung

          She has a green card right to my heart. And penis.

    • People can’t complain about “celebrities talking politics” after someone like Donald Trump did just that and pretty much used it to launch himself to the Presidency. Remember, this is the guy who stayed in the public eye by somehow convincing a bunch of people that Barack Obama was a Muslim Kenyan Socialist Communist Nazi out to take our guns and kill us.

      • Aaron

        It’s easy to convince people of things when they want to be convinced.

        • Marvkie Post – #10

          Or when they spend their entire adult life studying media and politics, whatevs lol

      • Marvkie Post – #10

        Please continue being the prime example of why we lost lol

        • Is any of what I said wrong? No.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            Sure it is, Trump said stuff people wanted to hear there’s a very key difference

          • People wanted to hear that Barack Obama was a Kenyan?

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            Yes. They also wanted to hear “Hillary is a liar” because the whole country knew it already. They also wanted to hear anything, litereally ANYTHING focused on working Americans and not an entitled elite that calls people with a differing opinion retards, rapists and racists.

          • I’m not talking about Hillary. Try and stay on subject here.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            I am, I’m talking about Donald. You understand that he was competing against another person right? Or in the hyperliberal assumption that all was going to go according to plan really that deeply delusional?

          • I’m not talking about the election. I’m talking about people bitching about “celebrities talking politics” when everyone gravitated towards a guy who said in 2011, without any inkling of proof or reason otherwise, that the first black President of the United States was born in Kenya.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            The reason he got play for doing that is because he was one of the few celebrities willing to go against the herd. Being a hyperliberal idiot is not a rebellious position in media. What Trump did was, in the minds of enough Americans to allow him to bitchsmack the same President that spent all summer making jokes at his expense.

            Of course the gravitated toward him, he was loudly saying things people never have the balls (or in this case foresight) to say because they’d like to keep working in Hollywood

          • So he had the balls to lie? Ballsy.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            More than that, he had the balls to laugh off a national media force that couldn’t handle a guy that simply waved them off. He played the shit out of national media and it was glorious to watch. He won because he ran a batter campaign.

          • Roman Reigns Winky Face

            Are you into S&M by any chance?

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            Just a liberal deeply embarrassed by his own party.

          • Roman Reigns Winky Face

            Ah. I don’t buy it, but okay.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            LOL, I canvassed my own state so we could be the first people that voted for gay marriage by majority rather than senate ruling.

            But okey-doke. Honestly I liked this bit better when mar came right out and said I couldn’t possibly have any black friends if I disagreed with him haha, he at least went for it

          • Roman Reigns Winky Face

            It’s weird how you continue to absolve the entire right-wing of their role in name-calling.

            Also, name-calling has very little effect on the electorate.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            The difference is that the right’s name calling worked. They were smart enough not to chase off potential voters with their own entitled attitude. Literally the woman made it a campaign issue if her opponent was going to graciously lose when she took her rightful place at the throne.

            There are a variety of factors but to discount a nationwide entertainment apparatus repeatedly blasting anyone that disagrees for A YEAR is a bit silly. People voted from the gut this time around and a lot of what liberals had to say made them sick.

          • Roman Reigns Winky Face

            So if the left calls the right-wing retards in 2020, that’s cool because it worked?

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            It wouldn’t work. We know it doesn’t because they did the same thing in 2004. And now gain in 2016.

          • The Rabid One

            Well duh, it fits into the perspective and the liberals are sneaky and will subvert the Constitution in any way possible

        • It’s fun, isn’t it?

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            It’s pretty great. No one is ever at fault except those dastardly people that disagree.

            Oh also Trump IS HITLER!!!! HITLER!!!! HITLERRRRRRR!~~~~~~~~~~

            (I can’t believe he called Obama a Muslim)

          • Matt_Indeed.

            There are many reasons why we lost. And it was our fault.

          • Aaron

            It was Democratic Party leadership’s fault, not private citizens speaking.

          • Death Rollins

            I’m gonna be disappointed if Barry doesn’t wear a turban to his last day on the job.

        • Matt_Indeed.

          That’s just an easy excuse. “Liberal smarminess” is not why we lost. We lost for many reasons. The biggest was middle voters don’t like Hillary personally, so they voted for the other guy.

          • Marvkie Post – #10

            You’re a retard for thinking that. Now why won’t you see things my way again? lmao

          • Roman Reigns Winky Face

            Yeah, he won the three most crucial states by a half point. But liberals need to be more self-loathing. That’s what conservatives do.

            Oh wait.

          • Aaron

            Who chose Hillary? It’s a disconnect from the top.

          • The people that voted for her over Bernie.

          • Aaron

            They can thank the front-loaded, corrupt primary process for their candidate.

      • The Rabid One

        Give me back my guns……

      • Death Rollins

        The same people who complain about celebrities being political think Reagan was among our greatest Presidents.

        • DING DING DING!

          Let’s not forget that before Trump started his racist campaign against Obama, Republicans in office were actually thinking of rewriting the American born requirement because they wanted Arnold to run.

          • Death Rollins

            And now he seems to be veering hard left on the environment.

      • Isn’t trump a good example of what bad things can happen when celebs talk politics?

        • Absolutely, but don’t sit in the glass house and throw stones at the other glass house.

    • RedStorm

      She also said that “foreigners and Hollywood celebrities” are marginalized. I don’t even know where to go with that one.

      • Aaron

        Don’t. It was what it was. The people who are riled up about it already dislike what they view as Hollywood.

        • RedStorm

          Piers Morgan shit all over her and the people applauding her. But I hate Piers Morgan so I’m indifferent.

          • Aaron

            It’s just opinion. She was going to say what she was going to say. The Democratic Party if they want to get ahead will just have to let things like that go and organize.

  • Adam Wright

    Last night Chris Jericho became the first man in Wrestling history to complete the full WWE Grand Slam. WWE title, World Title, both tag titles, IC Title, US Title, Euro Title & Hardcore Title

    • Fester

      How can it be a true grand slam when he never won either cruiserweight title? The first one didn’t have an actual enforced weight limit (at least not on Smackdown)

      • Adam Wright

        The original WWE Cruiserweight tile was a continuation of the WCW title, which Jericho did win.

        • Fester

          Fair enough. Does light heavyweight title count? Or universal title?

    • Edward M

      That pretty much proves Chris Jericho can work any position on the card.

    Bill O’reilly hit with another sexual harrassment lawsuit. Are there any old men in Fox news who aren’t creepy old bastards?

    • If I had money and power, I’d hit on every legal, attractive female that stirred my loins.

      • AnInternetToughGuy

        Me too!
        But there’s a definite line between hit on and harassment.

        • Not in the modern workplace.

          • Eh. I think you can politely ask someone out without it crossing over into harassment. Of course, I’ve been married for almost 13 years.

          • Dwayne

            People flirt and stuff all the time in the workplace and dating is common. The problem usually comes up when a boss is being disrespectful or a co-worker is being too pushy.

        • Dwayne

          Yeah, I don’t like using my fists.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Why do you think they named the station “Fox”? “Skank” would have been a wee too obvious.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      You’re asking if there are any old republicans who aren’t creepy?

      ….No.

      • I’m pretty sure McCain’s not creepy.

      • Death Rollins

        That’s why they mega-push any relatively attractive blonde woman who shares their beliefs. How many old Republicans have you seen that aren’t some unearthly version of wizened, fat, dumpy, skeletal, or leering? McCain? Reagan? It’s a short list.

        • Matt_Indeed.

        The main thing is that there’s nothing the Democratic Party can do about what celebrities say. They’ll have to reach out and just live with their supporters, or maybe find some shitty country musicians.

  • Wade

    When I was a senior in high school, a good female friend got busted drinking underage and was kicked out of graduation. She’s literally never had a drop of alcohol before. During the SATs, the entire graduating class left the test and went out to protest the unfairness of her dismissal. Another friend was scared, because he needed to get a good score to get into Berkeley like he’d always dreamed. Our protest went all day and entailed a lot of chanting, but the authorities respected our conviction and reinstated our friend!

    • Dwayne

      Did you also have a loser nerd friend that shot himself at his birthday party?

      • Wade

    • Andrew Champagne

      Never once saw the “it” factor in him. He was OK on the microphone, but once the match started, he was just another guy.

      • Wrestling has always been the least important part about wrestling. He was a star.

        • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

          Nah. He messed up simple stuff and was dangerous. You don’t have to be Misawa, but you need to be safe in the ring.

          • Seth Rollins ended a legend’s career, broke John Cena’s nose, and put a budding star on the shelf at the worst possible time. And people continually mention his name when discussing the company’s best workers. Be consistent, at least.

        • He had no “it” factor whatsoever. That showed when he went to TNA and did the exact same schtick there.

          • Nobody has “it” in TNA. They made Kurt Angle look like an indy geek. TNA is death to anybody trying to project a big time image.

      At least Reigns has the look and is carryable.

    • Not at all. He exuded star quality more so than anybody else they brought in during that era. Injuries and politics got in the way, but he was a star among geeks.

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        Injuries and politics got in the way.

        Also, his awfulness.

        • WWE’s problem is that they have too many Sami Zayns and not enough Ken Kennedys.

          • That’s a good problem to have.

          • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

            If you have too many Zayns, the product is just bland and boring.

    As far as I know, My graduating class has 1 killed in a party, 2 dead early in life and most are doing okay, although the Asian ones are currently making bank.

    • One of the kids from my year got sent to prison last year for molesting the neighbour kids he used to babysit.

    • Aaron

      Are they hiring? My new boss is a real joy.

    • Roman Reigns Winky Face

      I bet the Asians have people who serve them greek yogurt.

      • The Rabid One

        With fruit mixed in.

        • Roman Reigns Winky Face

          That’s some high falutin’ shit. If they put granola in it, too, I’ll know they are my type of people.

  • Edward M

    I wonder if Strowman wins the Rumble, and Cena and Reigns win the titles, will the audience turn on the show like they did for 2014 and 2015?

    • I think the breaking point is Tye Dillinger coming out at #10. If he doesn’t, then the crowd will turn

      • Grampa Mongolian Stomper X

        I’d have him come out at #11 just to annoy everyone, but I’m pretty terrible.

    • Robert

      They’re voluntarily paying money for a product that they know is shit. If that’s what they get, then they have no one to blame.

      • People have been paying good money to boo the shows for over 3 years now.

    • I’m only aware of 1 suicide and 2 up on pedo type charges. But I’ve not kept in touch. There are many general fall down losers.

      • Annd I replied to the wrong thread.

        • PhilStubington

          Actually it seemed quite appropriate, at least the suicide bit. .

      • Death Rollins

        Is Grizzly Smith one of the latter 2?

      • The Polish Hammer

        Clearly a reply to the wrong message, but I love it being here.

    • Vintage

      I think Undertaker winning ensures they don’t turn on the show, because those title changes are going to be a 1-2 punch of bullshit.

      • Robert

        Yeah, but I think they’re back at a point where they’re going to put their titles (and the Rumble) on the biggest names they have and then see what happens. Going with the lesser names hasn’t done anything for business.

  • You’re the one saying you need “reasons” and “realism” with this, and I’m giving you that. If you’d rather bitch about WWE because they don’t match what YOU want them to be, fine, but don’t act like there aren’t ways to explain away what they did. You just don’t want to accept the explanation.

  • The Polish Hammer

    I was recently on Facebook – one of my two annual visits per year – and got a friend request from someone I knew in high school. In a moment of weakness, I accepted, then suddenly sound myself invited to a group to plan our 30-year high school reunion. I politely said “fuck that shit” and have not been on Facebook since.

  • RudoWakening

    I keep in touch with one person from high school (as in, we actually hang out). She’s a cookbook author now and has been on Food Network.

    • RedStorm

      Is she the one wth the big tits or annoying voice? Or…any of the other women?

      • RudoWakening

        She is not. She was a judge on Cupcake Wars and was also on Kelsey Nixon’s show. Also, she came up with the idea for Punk to use straight edge as a gimmick.

        • RedStorm

          She sounds like a solid person. Is she a 6 star person??

        • Kenny_Reigns

          That was a genius idea.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    If you don’t eat imported greek yogurt, you’re an inbred racist. There. I said it. And I’m the only one with the balls to call you people out for it.

    • I eat domestically produced Greek-style yogourt for breakfast every day.

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      I don’t like Greek yogurt. Taking jobs away from good AMERICAN dairy workers. Why are they trying to take our jobs? They already have plenty of jobs over there in Greece, right?

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        Ugh, if you’re eating Dannon or Yoplait I have nothing to say to you.

    • Marvkie Post – #10
      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        Huh?

    • The Rabid One

      I eat Greek-American made Greek yogurt.

      • Aaron

        I’d hate to have to strain out all the hair.

  • Rowlf

    I like that Neville’s using the Rings Of Saturn as a finisher. Always thought that was a cool hold.

    • PhilStubington

      What happened to the Red Arrow?

      • Rowlf

        Not using it now he’s a heel.

        • mike

          I support that.

        • Daniel Swinney

          He used it on 205 Live.

          • The Polish Hammer

            He’s a heel-in-progress.

      • I think he no longer wants to kill himself doing that move everytime.

  • Edward M

    Rollins’ biggest problem is he comes accross as a unlikeable douchbag, perfect for a heel. However, his moveset is ultra flippy, perfect for a babyface. Is there a way for him to fix this and “fit in?”

    • He should slap Steph!

    • Robert

      Nope. It’s like trying to make Rick Rude a face. Some guys just don’t have the personality for it.

    • Daniel Swinney

      I think to be face he’d need to be a cool sleazebag like Rated R Superstar Edge, except without the part about making fun of the audience to get heat. Problem: can’t be rated R any more.

    • The Polish Hammer

      I approve of the turn since he no longer does the awful forced heel laugh.

  • The Rabid One

    If you watch Telemundo, here this Spanish Channel is 52, they have show that shows all the craziest videos from around the world. But unlike the English counterparts, there is no censorship. So last night they showed the video of the guy messing up his own suicide. He shot up onto his jaw but missed the skull, he just shot the bottom of his jaw off. Good job and all shown uncensored along with an Indian guy getting run over by a bus, all shown clear as day

    • The Polish Hammer

      And then a guy in a bumblebee costume ran around yelling “AY YI YI!!!!!”

      • The Rabid One

        Fuck you for making me laugh. LMAO!!!

    • No wonder Mexicans are fucked up.

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      Mexicans aren’t as shy about that. I remember when Abismo Negro died, the newspapers showed his dead body lying in the street on the front page..

  • mike

    I don’t like some stuff.

    I do like other things.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Rebel.

    • There are a few things that I like.
      But generally I don’t care for stuff.

      • mike

        Contrarian.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        We know.

        • One day on here I listed a few things that I like. Probably at least 4 or 5 things before I couldn’t think of any more.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            I’m shocked you got to 4.

    • Roman Reigns Winky Face

      Likes: arugula, dijon mustard, butter churned by real Amish people, fair trade coffee beans

      Dislikes: NASCAR, people who go to church, Sean Hannity, Breitbart

      • I like Dijon mustard too.

        • Roman Reigns Winky Face

          I laugh at the poor people who use yellow mustard, as they are ruining my country.

          • As a kid I always thought that I hated mustard, but it turns out that I just hate that gross yellow mustard. Many other mustards are great.

          • djowalsen: Known Hater

            I like all the mustards, they all have a place.

  • Robert

    I can play the guitar like a motherfucking riot

    • You can play a million guitars, but can you draw a dime?

    • juvydriver

      So, the question is, do you take all of your guitar money and give it all to charity?

  • Macklin Man Without Password

    I would like to see a vignette where Tye Dillinger draws his number for the rumble and gets #30 and then desperately tries to find whoever got #10 and trades with them.

    • I would happily go on a spree promoting Raw and SmackDown if Tye WASN’T in the Rumble.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I miss Rumble number shenanigans.

      • The last great one was Eddie pickpocketing Flair and switching their numbers.

  • Robert

    Shouldn’t Dillinger try to win all his matches by countout?

    • juvydriver

      Maybe steal Bundy’s gimmick and demand a 10 count instead of a 3 count?

  • jobber123

    The ending is quite weak though, like pretty bad. Otherwise assassin’s creed is a fine little action flick.

    • WITW

      The virtual reality aspect looked really awful in the trailer. Was that not too bad?

      • jobber123

        50-50. The full on flashbacks were the best part of the movie. Him bouncing around on the machine was awful.

    • Edward M

      Is the story as incoherent as the games?

      • jobber123

        It’s not coherent per se, but for a video game movie it’s got a story they worked.

  • WITW

    So I haven’t even checked any results or recaps the last few months, since this place was pretty much my only connection to current WWE at this point. Sooo…. is it awesome now? Is Reigns super duper over? Owens and Rollins tearing it up? Women’s revolution still revolutionizing?

    And what embarrassing bullshit has Ambrose gotten himself into???

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      Hey, you’re back!

      • WITW

        Goddamn right!

        • Night

          How is this happening?!

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      The last two months in a nutshell: Everything still sucks but Kenny Omega is going to come to WWE and fix everything via three minute TV matches.

      • WITW

        HAHAHAHAHA. Well hey, that’s exactly what Styles and Nakamura did right???? They totally brought in a new boom period.

        • Marvkie Post – #10

          Nakamura is still the Most Bestest though, until NXT hires someone new again

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I love how Kenny Omega is the new savior after one match but the Young Bucks are still the biggest heels on here. I’m sure if anyone saw the 4th guy’s work, Adam Cole, they’d hate him, too. But when he signs with NXT, he’ll be the new savior.

        I hate this place with wrestling.

        • Aaron

          Yeah and everyone’s haircuts are totally November 2016.

        • Macklin Man Without Password

          Kenny Omega isn’t the new savior. He’s Mr. Sex.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I was going to use that term, but I didn’t want to steal your thunder.

          • Aaron

            Also the Bucks are awful.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            At least you’re consistent. I honestly think if they signed with the WWE, most people would immediately worship them.

        • WITW

          I think Omega’s had more than one good match in his career, right?

          • Kenny_Reigns

            He has, but I’m exaggerating how he went from someone or only Ioan, Marv, and me talked about to being the hottest free agent in the market.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            You liked him more when he was underground.

          • WITW

            Oh totally. Is he really that hot of a free agent though? I mean, is WWE gonna bring him in as anything other than an NXT guy or a guy who jobs to everyone like Styles did when he came in? They’re not gonna break the bank for him when he’s basically just gonna be cannon fodder for Reigns anyway.

          • André Stenzel

            Yeah right, Only you Three….

      • Vintage

        Kenny Omega just sold out the Tokyo Dome and is a god in Japan right now. Unless Vince backs a dump truck of money to his house, he’s not leaving that to go do the Wrestlemania pre-show.

    • djowalsen: Known Hater

      Ambrose became buddies with a chinless hillbilly who backstabbed him during a title match to get his own title shot, only to lose in like 30 seconds to AJ Styles. Ambrose forgave the chinless hillbilly and never got revenge, by the way.

    • I hate everyone.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Reigns is God and has beaten John Cena cleanly every week despite them being on different shows. Owens went on Atkins and, in a fit of starvation, ate Jericho. Rollins has switched to a Bob Ross gimmick where he paints happy little trees on opponents’ faces after he pins them. And Ambrose is your current Women’s champion.

      • Andrew Champagne

        Rollins as Bob Ross would be the greatest thing he could ever do.

    • Night

      You mean intercontinental champion Dean Ambrose?

      • WITW

        Oh shit! Dude’s on his way up.

  • Robert

    Ax and Smash should start off this year’s Rumble, just because.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Awkward: While Facebook-chatting with Maude, one of my exes who’s engaged to a shithead starting chatting with me about how awful he treats her and that she should’ve never left me.

    WOMP WOMP

    • DAJackson7

      Threesome time!

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I wouldnt say no but I think Maude would have reservations.

        • DAJackson7

          Give her plenty of alcohol!

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Ok.

    • Dwayne

      Have sex with her.

      • Facts

        Like Dan Fielding!

        • Dwayne

          They never left Dan, he left them!

    • Cool story bro.

    • Marvkie Post – #10

      Lots of internet women, you need to get one in Canada too

    • Miko363

      TIL that people use Facebook chat.

  • Man, Wheel of Fortune is nothing like it was when I was a kid. I wonder if Chuck Woolery ever regrets walking away from the show.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I used to be addicted to that show but now its too gimmicked up. It might as well be RAW Roulette

      • I watched it for the first time in years recently. Yeah, the wheel is dolled up like a two-bit Vegas whore.

    • The Polish Hammer

      You mean the days of “I’ll take the toaster oven, the porcelain statue of a dalmatian, and the rest on a gift card”?

      • Yeah. I always wanted somebody to put their remaining money on account.

  • Edward M

    I can’t get a job interview right. I always get fucking nervous and start accidently telling the truth. I just had a job interview and accidently when asked why I want to leave my current position, I told the truth and said “Because the union is threatening a strike.” That’s the true reason, but god dammit, I got nervous and couldn’t think of an acceptable lie. I hate job interviews, I’m not a good enough liar for them.

    • juvydriver

      I had the same issue. I would get nervous and just couldn’t think of good, thought out answers. I would suggest finding someone you can practice with. So many interview questions are the same or variations on a theme. Get some repetition.

      • Edward M

        I have some mild autism, and all the practice in the world just can’t prepare me for them. I’ve read books on them, done mock interviews, but I always fumble them. I even had an “acceptable lie” memorized for that question, because I knew it was coming, but I still choked under the pressure. It feels like job interviews are 30 minutes of lying, and I just don’t have the skillset for it.

    • The Polish Hammer

      I solved that by forcing myself to count to two in my head before I answered any question. It’s just a long enough pause to show the interviewer that I’m seriously considering the question but not so long that I come across as dim-witted, and it’s stopped me from blurting out the first thing that came to mind.

      • Edward M

        My problem was I froze for about 20 seconds before answering, and forgot my memorized lie. I had to say something.

    • The Rabid One

      I hate crossing the Border, I keep getting certain question wrong.
      Do you have any explosives or firearms in the car?
      I have to say no, but I keep on saying YES!….

  • Miko363

    I’m still close with a lot of my high school friends and live in the town where I grew up.

    As for college? I stay in touch with two of them. That’s it.

  • Facts
    • The Polish Hammer

      ebaumsworld is still a thing?

  • Robert

    The Rumble should be the one match every year that is impossible to screw up. You have so many feuds and storylines that you can weave into it. But the last two have been awful.

    • DAJackson7

      Jamie Knoble cannot book a Rumble at all. Last years was marginally better cause Jericho called all the shots.,

      • He knows how to book Roman as the biggest heel in the company!

      • Edward M

        Jericho probably wont be in it this year and have a US title match instead, so we are fucked.

        • DAJackson7

          I really think i will take a break if the Cena-Undertaker rumor of title vs career is going to happen and Reigns -Strowman. I haven’t ever quit cold turkey before but those things will bring me no joy. I only watch Tuesdays as it is

    • Kenny_Reigns

      The problem is the WWE needs to give a shit about their own feuds for it to work.

    • I thought they did a good job last years using Owens to eliminate Styles and Zayn to eliminate Owens. Of course that was all overshadowed by the 25 minute nap.

      • Robert

        Last year’s Rumble might have been better if there wasn’t a giant flashing neon sign saying “Wait til HHH shows up at Number 30!!!!!!”

    • Edward M

      This year’s way of ruining it will be having Braun Strowman eliminating the Undertaker before he even finishes the entrance.
