• Sexy Miz

    Donald Trump challenged Vince McMahon to a fight at Wrestlemania 30. Whatever came of that?

  • Sexy Miz

    Trump walked into his WWE HoF Induction to boos and left to a standing ovation. Incredible!

  • Katsuyori Shibata’s (alleged) side chick is airing him out on twitter. I suspect the NJPW office will take a dim view of this. They probably won’t suspend him like they did with Taichi, but I doubt he’s getting any kind of serious push any time soon.

    • Sexy Miz

      Yeah, all those allegations by Honma’s GF were so devastating to his career.

    • Ioan Morris

      Did Rollins ever get any punishment for his stuff? I remember the woman got fired afterwards.

      • Sexy Miz

        He gives a whole new meaning to working stiff.

        • Ioan Morris

          HeyOh!

      • Not as far as I know. And I think she got fired more for the racist stuff than for the nudes (which were posted by the woman he was cheating on with her).

  • Ioan Morris

    I’d like to try and watch last night’s AXS show if anyone knows of a source.

  • Sexy Miz

    My God, the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2013 is incredible. I don’t think any other class is even worthy of being called #2.

  • PhilStubington
  • JosephM

    This coming Thursday (January 19) marks 25 years since the 1992 Royal Rumble. I propose a Live Watch.

  • Six Star TatR!

    PREMIERSHIP IS BACK WOOHOO

    • Thebraziliankid

      LIVERPOOL!

  • Sexy Miz

    Watching 1996 WWE Hall of Fame review show, hosted by Renee Young and Gene Okerlund.

    Poor Gene must be having serious neck problems. Every time he tried to look Renee in the eyes, his eyes ended up drifting about 18 inches lower.

    • JosephM

      Did they put that back up? I remember they had 3 for 94, 95 and 96 and the 96 one disappeared (I imagine it was because of Snuka).

      • Sexy Miz

        Snuka was there giving his speech.

        • JosephM

          I figured the reason they took it down at the time was because of the Snuka trial. One thing to have him in matches, another to have a program celebrating and honoring him.

          • Six Star TatR!

            also there’s an awkward moment where he admits killing the girl and Vince is seen laughing

    • Six Star TatR!

      There is a LOT of neck in that top

  • PhilStubington

    Apparently we’re back to full strength for the Barnsley game. The Board announcing they’d swallow the loan fee and leave Martin to fester in the reserves for the rest of his season long loan has concentrated his mind.

    • Six Star TatR!

      To the playoffs!

      I’m very interested in Brum vs Forest today in the Championship. Looks like our plucky local teams takeover has failed, and I’m interested in seeing if Zola crashes and burns at the in-laws team

      • PhilStubington

        Going to be a chilly afternoon in the Riverstand stand.

        • Six Star TatR!

          Aye. Fuuuck. Don’t envy that!

      • Got a mate who’s Forest, said yesterday he’s not going until Al-Hasawi is out. It’s a real shame, they’re a team that really ought to be in the Premier League.

        • Six Star TatR!

          yeah he’s apparently the worst. And the Birmingham fans are just as unhappy

      • Ioan Morris

        Yet another terrible owner bringing a club to the brink of ruin.

  • Ioan Morris

    About to embark on part one of my journey to Blackpool. Takes this bus 1hr 45m to go 48miles.

    • PhilStubington

      You going for both nights then?

      • Ioan Morris

        No, just tomorrow. Staying the night in my hometown then driving up to Blackpool with my friend.

        • PhilStubington

          Enjoy. Tonight’s probably going to be lots of ten minute matches anyway since its the early rounds.

          • Ioan Morris

            That’s what I assumed. A showcase for the guys going through. I thought they might have time limits, but nothing announced yet.

  • Six Star TatR!

    Right, well. Looks like Spurs have 2nd locked up for the day.

  • As I said yesterday I’m going to watch all of 2016 NJPW and started with WK10… I know it had only been a few months since I saw it on AXS but Damn that Shibata Ishii match is something

    • You should watch their match from the 2013 G1. It’s only 10 minutes but has just as much intensity and brutality as any Dome match either of them have had. It was the match that got me following puro again after a few years away since the decline of NOAH.

  • Devin Harris

    My fiance snuck in a group night on me last night. Went to a Japanese place and then went to see some movie with Jamie Foxx. Turns out it was a cop movie. I hate cop movies because they all have Vince Russo disease where everyone has to turn heel/face 34 fucking times.

    • Six Star TatR!

      That is true. It turns out he was a bad guy all along but wait he was actually a double agent oh shit!

      • Devin Harris

        You never saw it coming, bro! Cause you were too busy expecting this shit to make sense.

    • Sexy Miz

      And they all have buddies that get killed two weeks before retirement.

      • Devin Harris

        Thankfully, they left that trope out; however, it did have T.I. gunning for a Razzie! That is what those things are called, right? What I’m saying is T.I is a shitty actor

        • Kenny_Reigns

          When TI shows up in a movie, I get insanely happy exactly for that reason. He’s beyond awful!

          • Devin Harris

            My fiancé said it out loud in his first scene

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Did you see the Kevin Hart/Rock cop movie? It was like that, but it was so over the top, it didn’t matter.

      • Devin Harris

        Yeah I liked that one cause rock and Kevin hart were going to make you like it

    • RedStorm

      Let’s Be Cops was pretty good. Well, bad but not on that formula.

  • Six Star TatR!

    First half stats from White Hart Lane

    Possession: 78-22
    Shots 10-0

    Seems tight

  • Devin Harris

    It’s laundry day and I need to get going before people start showing up. I should be posting on here while I’m doing that instead of neglecting it so I can post

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Well get busy man!

  • Ioan Morris

    Just reading about the Diego Costa situation. Clubs must hate Jorge Mendes.

    • Six Star TatR!

      Thumbs up for turmoil and possible collapse to Chelsea season

      • Ioan Morris

        Wouldn’t mind a couple of dropped points here and there.

    • Thebraziliankid

      What’s the deal with Costa?

      • RedStorm

        He got a huge offer from a Chinese team and shit hit the fan. He was removed from Chelsea and the new said the trainers weren’t properly caring for him.

        • Thebraziliankid

          He reminds me of Edmundo, great talent, but a nutcase to deal with.

          • RedStorm

            Edmundo without the arrests.

          • Thebraziliankid

            Edmundo had a star chance in Fiorentina with Batistuta and Rui Costa, blew due his temper.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    For tomorrow’s game: if Henderson is out this match will be over before it even starts. Personally I don’t rate him but his presence in that liverpool team is undeniably huge, they look spineless and toothless without him. If he doesn’t start it’ll be a lot less cagey affair.

    An ideal scenario is a Can and Lucas midfield, which we would absolutely obliterate but I highly doubt Klopp will start it after the Southampton game. This game well and truly decides our season.

    I’m excited but nervous as hell,haven’t felt like this before a Liverpool game since Fergie.

    • Ioan Morris

      You don’t rate Henderson? That’s ridiculous.

      • Thebraziliankid

        He’s the anointed one for the gerrard spot.

        • Ioan Morris

          I’m not going to go that far, but highest number of completed passes this season. Second in tackling.

    • Adam Wright

      I think Mane being off due to the Africa Cup of Nations, will have a big impact on Liverpool.

      • Thebraziliankid

        Coutinho is still isn’t 100%.

  • Adam Wright

    Bad News: I fell off a ladder this morning.
    Good News: I landed on my feet perfectly.

    I am part Cat!

    • RedStorm

      Now that’s damn impressive.

    • Miko363

      The real question is where the fuck was Vickie??

  • Kenny_Reigns

    I’m never up this early, but I’m learning early morning BoD talk is all football talk!

    Sorry, boys, it’s a fine sport, but I know nothing about it. I have a soft spot for Austin Villa fans because the owner is awful.

    • Thebraziliankid

      I know about bad owners/presidents, my team suffers this plague since 2008. 3 relegations in less than 10 years.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Who is your team?

        • Thebraziliankid

          In Brazil, Vasco da Gama. We went for the first time ever the Second division in 2009,we became champions in that year and came back. We had a rebirth year in 2011 being Brazilian cup champions and Runner-ups in the Série A. But in 2012, Dinamite, who was the president at the time sold the whole roster and we got fucked, relegated in 2013, than we got relegated in 2015 again. We’re back to first division after almost missing the spot in the last round, funny thing was that we had 13 points in the lead in the first turn of league.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Ouch. That hurts. That’s even worse than being a Browns fan where we just expect the worst.

          • Thebraziliankid

            We used to fucking dominate Brazil in 1996-2001. That’s the sad part.

    • Six Star TatR!

      Pretty much all the owners are awful

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Yeah, but Austin Villa has the former Cleveland Browns owner. That’s a special kind of Hell.

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          Aston Villa.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Ah! Sorry! I just know their owner’s work.

          • Thebraziliankid

            There’s a David Bradley interview, the guy is a die hard Aston Villa fan, he said “we used to dominate Europe, now we’re laughing stock of PL”.

            I feel your pain, Dave.

  • Adam Wright

    Resubscribed to the Network and back to my Attitude rewatch. Night after St Valentines Day Massacre Raw first up. I’m about to hit Russos worst period in WWE.

    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      December ’98 to June ’99 is absolutely brutal television.

  • Wade

    The TNA tapings continue to, on paper at least, look very interesting.

    • Thebraziliankid

      I LOVE YOU CORPORATE DUCK!

    • Six Star TatR!

      Just change your name to Owl you TNA stooge

    • Kenny_Reigns

      They do look interesting. Eddie Edwards is always good, Lashley got good, and hopefully Galloway keeps being good on his way out.

    • WWF1987

      Looks like more of the same stuff.

  • RedStorm

    I was playing NBA 2K16 last night and fell asleep up 39-23. I woke up and found out I lost 80-39. How in the world does a system not realize no one is playing?

    • Six Star TatR!

      You must be really bad to not even score by accident while asleep

      • Comdukakis

        nope. the userhas to press the shoot button and to pass the ball inbounds. So he got 5 second violations for the rest of the game while playing 4 on 5 defense as the player he was controlling became a traffic cone.

        • Six Star TatR!

          See this is where I go wrong, I never press the buttons even while awake

      • RedStorm

        I had 46 turnovers haha

  • Thebraziliankid

    How the fuck Chinese Clubs get all of that money?

    • Adam Wright

      China is as economically corrupt now as Russia was 20-30 years ago

    • Big D Wangston

      Cause orange chicken is DA SHIT!!

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Government and corporate investment mostly.

      • Thebraziliankid

        Because offering Ronaldo 100 million per year is something not even Real is capable of pulling.

  • Big D Wangston

    I love how the Steelers reinstating Joey Porter to make sure he’s at the game today only gets a bottom line scroll, but if a Patriots ANYTHING went through the same thing there would be outrage, investigations, and multiple draft pics vacated.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      You’re not wrong.

    • Comdukakis

      that’s what happens when you have a history of getting caught cheating.

      • Big D Wangston

        Just like the coach trying to trip a kick returner right on camera

  • Adam Wright

    Paul Wight’s Raw debut and he’s wearing a plain black outfit with “No gimmick needed” written on it. It honestly amused me.

    • Six Star TatR!

      A year later he wrestled a PPV match dressed as Hulk Hogan!

      • Adam Wright

        I loved the Impersonation gimmick of Big Shows. I know lots of wrestlers have done it before and since but he seemed to really get it.

        • Six Star TatR!

          That was a lot of fun. I only remember that match. Pretty good show, that Backlash 2000!

          • Six Star TatR!

            Even though it was on Channel 4

          • Adam Wright

            Channel 4 had some amazing PPVs in 2000. Rumble, Backlash & Fully Loaded.

          • nebb28- Aaron Judge Hype Train

            that was prob my favorite PPV in 2000. and there were a lot of good ones to pick from.

  • zahidf

    Good month to have the network. This weekends tournament, NXT Special and the Rumble

  • WWF1987

    NFL picks:

    Atlanta (-4.5) over Seattle
    New England (-16) over Houston
    Green Bay (+5) over Dallas
    Pittsburgh (+1) over Kansas City

    • Kenny_Reigns

      The New England/Houston line can’t get high enough to be a bad deal.

  • Adam Wright

    Chelsea manage to find new ways to screw up. They’re flying high and are near unbeatable. So they sell Oscar and are either going to sell Costa or he’ll be frozen out of the team.
    Even City aren’t this incompetent.

    • Thebraziliankid

      Fuck Chelsea, they ain’t got no history.

    • Ioan Morris

      Was Oscar even playing?

      • Adam Wright

        Not regularly but if Costa goes he would have been the 1st choice.

        • Ioan Morris

          Am I imagining that it’s mostly south American players going to China so far?

          • zahidf

            Not in your head, its two things why. a) a lot of them come really poor favera backgrounds so money is very important and b) as shown with Hulk, most south american FAs will stick pick you for the national team if you are not in an elite league, unlike say Spain or England

          • Thebraziliankid

            Hulk is not on the national team anymore.

          • zahidf

            He was until recently, while he played for Russia!

        • zahidf

          No he wouldnt, Oscar isnt a striker!

      • Thebraziliankid

        Oscar needs to be burying like that little shit David Luiz, he’s not a true center back.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Nice to see them getting a taste of their own medicine.

    • zahidf

      Oscar has barely featured and they got 60 million for him, and 4 better players in his position. Good deal!

      • Thebraziliankid

        William, Pedro, Hazard and Kanté?

        • zahidf

          and fabergas

    • Six Star TatR!

      As long as they lose their next two then beat Liverpool I’m happy

      • Adam Wright

        I want games involving the rest of the top0 6 to all end in draws. It’s that tight at the top we still have a chance of the title yet.

        • Six Star TatR!

          I wonder if there’s ever been a time when a team in 6th like us could win 6 in a row and not move up the table at all

        • Six Star TatR!

          Also: Always Liverpool lose. Never a draw with Liverpool. Liverpool must lose.

          • Adam Wright

            Nearly got in a bar brawl last night over Liverpool. Drunk idiot in the pub was talking about the game Saying how he wanted Liverpool to lose. Not talking to anybody just announcing it across the pub. Everyone just kind of ignored him. He started about how he hated scousers. Everybody still ignored him. He then said he was happy Hillsborough happened. If The Landlady hadn’t told him to fuck off then and there and he went, he would have ended up with his head kicked in, as a dozen people suddenly were paying attention to him and nobody was happy.

          • Six Star TatR!

            Ugh. Football fans who take it too far. I can’t stand Liverpool FC but I don’t exactly wish their fans dead.

          • Thebraziliankid

            Like I don’t wish Manchester or Flamengo players to be dead.

          • Adam Wright

            It’s like Munich chants. 99.99% of fans aren’t assholes but it’s the ones that are that get remembered.

  • Six Star TatR!

    oh shit Spurs just banged in two more in quick succession

  • Thebraziliankid

    HBK’s overselling Hogan made that match, don’t understand why people complain it.

    • Night

      Because it was way too cartoony. The bump off the big boot is horrible.

      • Thebraziliankid

        It’s hilarious.

        • Comdukakis

          it was unprofessional and awful. I loved the buildup with HBK selling the match and taking the piss out of Hogan. But the match? Not good.

          • nebb28- Aaron Judge Hype Train

            for all the talk that Shawn had “changed” in his second stint, that match sure made it look like some part of 97 HBK was still around – making it very clear when he was unhappy for not getting his way, even at the expense of the product

          • Comdukakis

            jeebus doesn’t make you a better person. Shawn just learned how to hid “Shawn” better.

  • Thebraziliankid

    God, HBK knew how to draw heat in Canada.

  • Adam Wright

    Shane McMahon went from being practically unwatchable in October 98 to totally getting it and being able to hold his own on the mic with the likes of Austin/HHH by Feb99.
    It’s amazing how quickly he improved.

    • Devin Harris

      He wasn’t a good baby face

  • Six Star TatR!

    Oooh Spurs play Man City next week nice

  • Matt Johnson

    Been watching Total Divas all morning. I want to look away but can’t.

    • Comdukakis

      so my question with that show is how Vince and WWE thinks presenting their talent as all pretty much petty, awfu people should somehow equate to me cheering some of them (looking at you Belas, Cena, etc.)?

      • Matt Johnson

        I think Nikki is fairly likeable in the show. She’s kinda vapid and overly competitive but she seems nice. Brie seems really bitchy. Renee seems cool. Rusev is the MVP of the show though. He’s fucking hilarious.

  • Devin Harris

    The laundromat is the most casual place on earth. Everyone shows up in whatever they slept in

    • SodaPop

      Hey, laundry day.

    • juvydriver

      I see more and more people actually out at places wearing pajama pants. Those aren’t actually pants, people!

      • Devin Harris

        If it’s Walmart I let it slide. There is no decorum in that establishment

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    http://www.nola.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2017/01/wwe_chairman_vince_mcmahon_dis.html

    Posted it before , but an interesting interview with Vince.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Do you miss being on TV?

      “God, no. That was a chore. I enjoyed it, but it just ate up so much time personally, and I couldn’t produce and direct, which is what I love to do. I love to help create new stars and tweak this and help them grow here. I can’t do that as a talent because you have to have your head wrapped around that. I’ve done both in the past, but it’s not what I prefer to do. It takes an extraordinary amount of energy to be able to do that. Trying to both is difficult. It really is.”

      Kinda makes you wish he was back on TV.

      • SodaPop

        Kinda?

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    ” Old-time promoters tried to legitimize the sport, and I came along, and my point of view was one of, ‘Wait a minute. This is entertainment, and our audience knows it’s entertainment.’ The only people that are **** themselves are the owners of the territories, thinking we’re presenting this as a sport. I looked at it in terms of entertainment.”

    • Comdukakis

      or he wanted to not pay fees to state commissions. But hey his BS explanation is good too

      • Dwayne

        He pretty much took wrestling in a different direction from the time he took WWF over though. I think the commission stuff came in the late 80s

        • Comdukakis

          yes and no. he was already fighting the commissions early on as he went with more glitz in the mid 80s. It only became publicized in the late 80s

          • Devin Harris

            But he had a point doe

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “How did you grow your audience?

    It was the lowest common denominator in terms of who those promoters were trying to appeal to. It goes all the way back to make sure your big events happen on the 15th and beginning of every month because that’s when the ‘welfare’ checks came out. So that was their point of view. I’m going, that is really stupid. Why not appeal to a much broader spectrum across American and increase the potential of the audience, so that’s why I went more in terms of the entertainment sectors.”

  • Six Star TatR!

    Battleground has a 15 minute Randy Orton promo. Holy crap what a terrible thing to put on a special

  • ProjectBlue

    “You listen to the audience and if the audience is catching on to this or
    you think they may gravitate to that, that’s where you go.”………fuck you, Vince

  • Six Star TatR!

    Commentators talking about how amazing it was that all three members of the Shield held the most prestigious title in the same night. Buddy, if three people can hold a title in one night, it ain’t that prestigious

  • Devin Harris

    I believe Vince when he says he doesn’t look back. I don’t buy the I outworked them bullshit though. He was just better at the game

  • SodaPop

    Did I ever mention my mother is a fucking saint? I was at work yesterday morning when I found out about pre-orders becoming available for the Nintendo Switch. I knew waiting until lunch hour or after work to hunt a spot down would be iffy (buying it while at work wouldn’t be wise), so I called up home to see if by any chance in the world she was able to head to a store to grab one. I made sure to emphasize this wasn’t important enough to screw up your schedule or make you go out of your way to do it, but she insisted she was more than willing to hop in the car and make it happen, no problem.

    I have no idea if any pre-orders are still available as of this morning, but that’s besides the point. Some people may not see this as a big deal and simply assume family does stuff like this for each other, no questions asked and no need to be grateful for such a “little thing.” Fuck that. I’m a pretty lucky asshole.

  • Adam Wright

    Ryan Shamrock is such a awful actress. She can’t even walk with a limp for 20 seconds. She forgot to limp half the steps then remembers and limps, then forgets again.
    Was she someone’s real life girlfriend or was she sleeping with someone, because I do not understand why she was hired.

    • Comdukakis

      Dunn found her in a strip club?

    • SodaPop

      “Slap me.”

    • Wade

      I believe she was sleeping with Shamrock.

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        Correct.

      • SodaPop

        I remember reading the same thing. Never knew if it was confirmed or not. I probably didn’t want to know.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    Watching Total Divas and hoping Paige uses the time off from her neck injury to finally take that shower.

    • Dwayne

      She needs to stop being mean to Eva

      • Roman Reigns Winky Face

        She needs to fall into a vat of body wash.

  • I posted this last night, but none of the other British guys were about. However I’ve just been reminded of it again as they were just talking about West Ham on the TV.

    Dimitri Payet transfer: Triple H tells wantaway West Ham star to ‘buckle down’ at the London Stadium

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/2609787/dimitri-payet-transfer-triple-h-tells-wantaway-west-ham-star-to-buckle-down-at-the-london-stadium/

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Since when did hhh become a west ham fan?

      • Thebraziliankid

        He was celebrating lat year West Ham had a Europa League spot.

      • It’s probably the Iron Maiden connection. I’ve noticed a lot of Americans seem to pick West Ham because Bruce Dickinson supports them.

    • Adam Wright

      That seems a very random thing for Triple H to comment on.

  • zahidf
    • Adam Wright

      It’s fine. He was elected as a racist sexist fuckhole. So what do you expect?

    • ProjectBlue

      8 more years!

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    Total Divas should be an hour of following around Lana.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      She’s surprisingly annoying without her accent. Not that you mind as much if you mute it.

  • Devin Harris

    Americans bandwagoning English soccer teams is very tacky and very American

    • ProjectBlue

      It’s going to be the next big thing here. Annnnnnny generation now

      • juvydriver

        As soon as it’s the big thing, I’m jumping off and moving to cricket or something. I can’t be a fan of something that is popular. #hipster

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          The true gentleman’s game.

        • Devin Harris

          I remember back during the World Cup NBA players at the game going ” I’M SUCH A BIG FAN “. Please

      • Devin Harris

        I set my alarm back in ’94 and I’m still waiting for it to go off

      • Dwayne

        I think it has become more popular but still won’t ever be as big as it is in other countries

        • Adam Wright

          It helps that it’s a relatively simple game to watch. Unlike American Football or cricket. You can watch a game and immediately know who is winning and how the game is played.

        • It’s an odd idiosyncracy that it’s the most popular sport in the world by far, except for in most of the biggest countries (USA, China, India, Australia).

          • Adam Wright

            Whats the most popular sport in China?

          • Basketball I think. Football is becoming more popular, but there’s not the same level that there is in most places.

          • Napoleon Blownapart

            Cricket, not football was the most common sport played by British Raj officials,and Indians later adopted it.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Any kind of bandwagoning is tacky.

    • Bones

      I gave it a fair shot but I just cannot watch soccer

      • Devin Harris

        Same here

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Probably more action in golf than your average soccer match.

        • Bones

          The flopping really drives me nuts too

  • Adam Wright

    Bart Gunn returns on Raw 6 months after the original Brawl For All.
    Absolutely no crowd reaction if they even recognised him. The really needed to do something ANYTHING with him after Brawl For All.

    • Devin Harris

      They never had any intention of pushing him

      • Matt Johnson

        This. He threw a major monkeywrench in their plans by winning. After he won, they couldn’t push Dr. Death and they really couldn’t push him all that much b/c he was a jobber. Hardcore Holly talked about it a lot in his book. He said the match with Butterbean was set-up so that Bart could fail. They called it Brawl for All but Butterbean’s camp wouldn’t take the match unless it was actually boxing. That’s why Bart never went for takedowns in the short-time he had. Had it been under BFA rules, he might’ve had a chance but there was no way he could stand in there and trade punches.

  • Devin Harris

    Kevin Garnett is making inside the NBA unwatchable.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Yes! I thought it was just me. It took me a while to adjust to both Chuck and Shack when they started.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Shaq ended up integrating really well. KG hasn’t worked at all so far.

        • Devin Harris

          Shaq used to try too hard in the beginning. Now he doesn’t try to hijack every segment so it works

      • Devin Harris

        I keep giving him chances but he’s grating on my nerves. Plus, they have too many people trying to talk

    • Dwayne

      He’s stupid

    • Dwayne

      He can’t stop cursing on air lol

  • Facts

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    ” It’s usually something done behind closed doors – but how would you feel about someone watching porn in public? The BBC’s Siobhann Tighe describes a troubling experience on a London bus. ”

    I guess you ignore it and pretend nothing happened? Or look for another seat if possible.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Someone was having sex on a bus or what?

    • Depends on what type of porn.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “Although I didn’t mean to or want to, I found myself looking over towards his mobile a few times and then it suddenly occurred to me what was going on. The man beside mewas watching porn.”

    You didn’t mean to. Ok.

    • Devin Harris

      If I made pr0n I’d produce it like a boxing match. Get locker room interviews beforehand. Get interviews immediately after and have commentators

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Hahahaha! I’d watch the Hell out of that!

      • Ultimate Surrender pretty much does that, actually.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    ” Once I realised, although I genuinely didn’t mean to, my eyes kept on being pulled back to it. I couldn’t quite believe it. First he was watching animated porn, with the two naked characters in lurid colours repeating their movements over and over again. Then he started watching a film, which seemed to begin in a petrol station with a large woman in a low-cut yellow top and blonde hair peering into the driver’s window. “

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    ” As a journalist, I also looked at it from his point of view, even though he made me feel uncomfortable. I asked myself: is he within his rights to look at porn on his private device wherever he is? Do civil liberties in oursociety grant him that freedom?

    “But in my heart, I was offended.”

    So offended you kept looking over his phone.

    • Filling the spank bank overrides his offended senses.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Her.

        • Her senses, then.

          … and what do women call it, exactly?

      • Adam Wright

        I never understand this. Have they never watched football before? Sunderland can still come back and they’d end up missing an incredible game.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I have Barcelona vs Las Palmas on TV

      • Thebraziliankid

        Boateng jobber brother is in there.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I have literally never heard of this team.

    • Adam Wright

      I fully expect Sunderland. Hull & one of Watford, Middleborough or Burnley to go down.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Not Swansea?

        • Adam Wright

          No. I expect Swansea will be safely out of the relegation battle by Easter.

  • Watching Smackdown for the first time in almost a year… do they really need 4 commentators?

    • Matt Johnson

      Not even the fact that they have 4 commentators but that 2 of them basically do the same job. Phillips and Mauro are both supposed to be the straight-laced commentator guys. JBL and Otunga are the color guys but I sorta get what they’re going for with that b/c JBL does it from a more heel perspective while Otunga does it from the face perspective.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        You can tell Otunga is a face because mostly everything he says sounds stupid.

      • Another question, why is Otunga still collecting a paycheck? I mean is Jennifer Hudson still even a name? Dreamgirls was 10 years ago.

    • slapdabass

      Phillips isn’t really a commentator. He’s basically a host. He introduces the segments then mostly just shuts up and sits there like a pud.

        It seems like a fair assumption.

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          Not to Bonzai, who assumed Will would be playing the crows.

          He’s not very bright, that young man.

    Raiders filed paperwork to move to Vegas.

    Once again, how many people in Vegas actually are from there and aren’t tourists?

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Well over half the people attending the games each week will be tourists.

      • Stan Ford

        So 12?

        It’s amazing how this relocation fiasco has laid bare the ugly priorities of NFL teams. There’s no disguising it. The Rams, Raiders and Chargers all left loyal fanbases to play in cities that do not give a FUCK about them.

        • Devin Harris

          I think it’s always been evident, but the problem now is no one is falling for the act anymore. There used to always be some sucker city ready to pucker up and kiss the NFLs ring.

        • It’s disgusting. Especially when the public is financing a good chunk of the stadium and getting nothing in return.

          • Bones

            Cities are wising up to this farce

          • The ones taking the teams aren’t.

        • Dwayne

          The NFL should put up money for these new stadiums

    • Devin Harris

      It’s always weird to find out someone grew up in Vegas. You just don’t think of it as an actual real city with people and stuff.

      • Did you ever see the movie “Pay it forward?” The characters in that live in Vegas.

        • Devin Harris

          Not the entire thing. Seen bits and pieces while channel surfing

          • It’s a good movie you should watch it. Also read the book.

            The book is better.

          • Devin Harris

            I think I will.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      I assume they have a significant number of residents because someone has to run the place.

      Now getting enough of those residents to support a team might be problematic, but I assume the Raiders would be something of a tourist draw, too.

  • Dwayne

    My 4 year old loves Teen Titans Go!

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      I watched one episode of that and hated it. But then, I’m a little outside of the target demographic.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        It’s an acquired taste, and much like some foods you have to be in the mood for it.

      • Dwayne

        Yeah. The first TT cartoon was more mature

    • Night

      If you ever want to break the child’s spirit, show them Camp WWE.

  • Bones

    And the Raiders didn’t keep their offensive coordinator despite the work he did with Carr and now he’s the Broncos QB coach.

  • Devin Harris

    I tried to catch the bus to the airport in Vegas. Got on the wrong bus and ended up riding into the ‘hood. It wasn’t really scary but outside of the tourist area it’s really run down.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Vegas has a really ugly racial history, so that’s not surprising.

    • Jay Thomas

      I think that’s the case for any city that has a huge casino presence.

    • Bones

      Atlantic City is a total dump once you get off the main casino drag

      • There is also a really nice song area, but yeah it’s a dump part all the tourist attractions. Thanks Trump.

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    I guess it could have been worse, she could have called him Dolph.

  • Devin Harris

    Are there any more legitimate places in the US to put a football team? I can’t think of one. Portland? Anchorage?

    • Dwayne

      San Antonio

      • Stan Ford

        Texas already ignores the Texans in favor of the Cowboys as is.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Honolulu?

      • Devin Harris

        they shouldn’t have any problem getting free agents to sign

    • slapdabass

      Seems like st Louis and San Diego would be good places for nfl teams. They should look into that.

  • Marvx Weinberg – #14

    I have my nephew this weekend, which has been equal parts super fun and super exhausting. We went to Gameworks last night and I go outside to smoke and end up get bothered by two guys trying to sell CDs. I asked one of the guys how this lame gimmick still works and he told me “not to clown on their game.” I said I wasn’t shitting on their strategy I was just surprised that anyone on earth still fell for it. They immediately stopped trying to sell me and we just ended up bullshitting for a few minutes, they were very very funny guys. When they got set to go one of them said, “Did you know black people invented the moon because we were tired of the weather?” I thanked him for the tides and then he said, “Yeah but they never teach that shit in school, they only teach Thomas Jefferson or whatever.” I let him know that Thomas Jefferson wasn’t black and he responded, “Yeah well whatever, some other black dude then.”

    They were fucking hilarious, I could bullshit with those derps for hours.

    • You shoulda bought some CDs, just to be nice.

      • Marvx Weinberg – #14

        Crazy enough they’ve moved from a cash enterprise to now scanning cards over the phone. He showed me his list of scans from yesterday and he had like 25+ at least that had let him run their card. People are fucking crazy. He also told me they were rich from this game and drank $100 bottles of water so I’m not sure what to believe anymore

        • Six Star TatR!

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            I’m not the easily offended type, but between your story and that comment, I feel like I should be indignant.

          • Marvx Weinberg – #14

            What’s wrong with my story? That’s what happened last night, those guys were funny as hell we were all laughing

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            White people laughing at uneducated, poor, criminally-minded Black dudes is Hollywood trope that has always bugged me. Not your fault and you’re just telling a story, but you know.

          • Six Star TatR!

            Be thankful the end of the story wasn’t Marv turning their lives around and getting them on the straight and narrow

            They weren’t uneducated at all, the guy was joking. And they weren’t poor either one of the dudes showed me a picture of his iPad on his phone lol, he called it his “poodle” for some reason

        • Ah, that’s fucking nuts.

  • Devin Harris

    I read that this whole San Diego thing was over the other owners ribbing Spanos about not maximizing his profits. The guy left San Diego cause the other owners made fun of him. That’s hilarious.

  • Devin Harris

    You know you black when you don’t want to trade in your car cause it has a half tank of gas in it.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Gas is expensive.

    • Aaron

      Tell ’em to knock $20 off the price.

    • Bones

      Gas is 2.70 a gallon because we have the worst gas taxes in the USA

      • Aaron

        Cue every other country laughing.

        • The Silver Fox

          At least Western European countries and Canada.

        • I just did a quick calculation and I most recently paid about 4.23/gallon.

          • Aaron

            Canada’s got the worst end of it because there are as many fuel efficient choices as in Europe due to being so close to the US and its big truck market.

      • Aaron

        That means she does. The English are reserved.

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          She probably only knows him as Lord TatR.

          • WWF1987

            Yep. I wonder how they’ll handle Shibata. Suspension and fine maybe? I can’t see them de-pushing him.

          • Thebraziliankid

            Vince would’ve pushed him for that.

          • maskedcabana

        I have an iphone 4s which does everything I need it to but people look at me like I’m driving a 1995 Honda.

  • Six Star TatR!

    In 2017 my vices have been taken on. Only THREE drinking nights this year, only TWO monster energy drinks all year and wait for it…. zero cheese and onion sandwiches from the corner shop by work

    • Bones

      Three drinking nights and we are two weeks in

      • Aaron

        Not bad!

      • Six Star TatR!

        To have only drank 3 times this year is a big deal for me. This time last year would have been like 13 minimum probably. Last year was a bad year for creeping alcoholism

        • Bones

          If you aren’t careful it can get you. When I was on 2nd shift for about five years I drank way too much.

          • Six Star TatR!

            A little to round off the evening became a little with every meal, became getting tipsy every night became drinking the best part of a wine bottle a night. It was a shitty year and I definitely went to drink. Christmas was the peak. Since then I’ve cut right back and feel a lot better. And feel MUCH worse after drinking the few times I have. Tolerance dropped very quickly

          • Bones

            I don’t know how quick tolerance drops off I can still get down a fair amount but good on you for recognizing it before it became a real problem

          • Six Star TatR!

            Yeah thanks. It only took six months of nagging from Mrs TatR

          • Marvx Weinberg – #14

            That shift is fertile ground for young budding alcoholics. Getting off at midnight with all that energy but no one is awake? Yeah…drinking alone in a dark room is like the only option available.

          • Bones

            Yup worked that shift in my mid 20s and I was amped up from having to meet deadline so it was either the bar or I went home and played Xbox while downing a sixer. Like you said everyone else is in bed and everything else is closed.

          • Aaron

            All of our 24 hour bars are within 15 minutes’ drive of the steel mills for a reason.

          • Bones

            There’s 24 hour bars? Ours have to shut down at 2 and can open at 7

          • Aaron

            Illinois has no laws about opening hours, so each municipality sets its own hours.

          • Bones

            PA’s liquor laws are about the most archaic in the USA

          • Aaron

            It’s crazy for a state with two good-sized cities, especially one built on shift work.

            Terrible. I was annoyed when I lived in a nearby town that didn’t start selling until noon on Sunday. Hello, kickoff is at noon!

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            Poor, poor alkies.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            That said, that Sunday law is the bunk. Jesus drank wine! And don’t Catholics still use it in communion?

          • Aaron

            No grape juice there. We liquor enthusiasts wouldn’t be okay with such things.

            Disclaimer: I am not religious.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            We liquor enthusiasts wouldn’t be okay with such things.

            Why? Would that drive up the price?

        It’s really hard to get a picture of them that isn’t blurry tho because they so rarely stay still long enough

          A horse tranquilizer should do the trick.

  • Miko363

    I can’t wait for Raiders players to bitch about lack of fan support when ownership is clearly relying on road fans using a Raiders game as an excuse to hit Vegas for a weekend to fill the stadium.

    • Aaron

      They can drown their sorrows in porn stars.

  • Bones

    Hmmm I wonder how much of this Duke/Louisville game I can watch before Bonita II returns from shopping…

    • Aaron

      Ha Louisville could lose their accreditation.

      • Bones

        They had accreditation?

        • Aaron

          I’m surprised too, but apparently since the governor of Kentucky changed the process for selecting the University board, the agency that handles their accreditation voiced concerns about independence.

          • Bones

            Independence?

          • Aaron

            The new system is deemed too politically influenced as ten of the thirteen seats would be appointed by the governor.

    • Miko363

      Has Grayson Allen “accidentally” hit an opposing player with a folding chair yet?

    It feels like Trump would legalize murder if Obama was opposed to it.

    The NXT Takeover card appears to be bad

    • Six Star TatR!

      hey pal thats 2017’s promotion of the year you’re talking about there

        It’s only been two weeks!

    The boos each time Allen touches the ball is comical

    • Aaron

      I am on tenterhooks waiting for that kid to join the Association.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Too bad guys like Anthony Mason were not still in the league. I’d love to see what happened if he tried that shit with Mason on the court.

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      I have a vague recollection of having seen that one when it originally aired. It was a couple months before I left home for college.

  • Facts

    Nothing like a puppy chewing on your finger at 3 am to get your morning started.

    • RedStorm

      Better than a puppy chewing on your penis at 3 am

  • Thebraziliankid

    I haven’t drinked in 3 months.

  • The Silver Fox

    Spent most of the morning getting grades ready for the end of the 2nd term (hardly seems possible that the school year is already half over) and listening to a mix of Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash, Carlene Carter and The Carter Family.

  • WWF1987

    I might watch the UK tournament before the playoff games.

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    At the risk of a banning, The Big Bang Theory‘s theme song is pretty annoying.

    • That is my ring tone.

    • Six Star TatR!

      I thought we banned everyone who liked that show

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        You can’t ban El Jefe.

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      It’s mildly clever hearing it once or twice, but after that it’s as annoying as the show itself.

    • The Silver Fox

      How about this?

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        Eh, I got used to it. The remake during the last year or so was pretty bad.

  • Thebraziliankid

    I’m not drinking I’m not in the mood really, but I usually drink one or two beers tops.

  • johntcole

    From a recent Bobby Fulton interview

    “I know Vince and them are big time, over-the-top, and this-and-that, but I guarantee you one thing right now, if I had his billions, I’d be a lot further down the road than where he’s at, and a lot more people would be watching my TV program on Monday Nights.”

    Said every old time has been wrestler ever. Not that I’m defending Vince but come on dude.

    • He should keep his bitching about how he would do a better job than Vince to a message board like the rest of us.

      • johntcole

        I mean even if you think he doesn’t have what it takes anymore today he was the head of two massive boom periods from 84 to 89 and 98 to 2001.

    • Aaron

      If I had Vince’s money I wouldn’t work.

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      I bet he could do a better *wrestling promotion*. Unfortunately Vince runs a billion dollar corporation. The real criticism is that WWE should probably be worth at least twice what Vince has built it to.

      • Aaron

        Where Bobby would have the advantage is in not wasting money on crappy movies. On the other hand, Vince just *gets* licensing and merch.

        • Brian_Bayless

          George Steele said it best. Vince is a terrible booker but a great promoter.

          Vince is incredible when it comes to selling merchandise and stuff like that.

      • johntcole

        But that’s just guessing, who knows what it’d be if he followed “our” advice since 2001.

        • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

          I’m talking from a pure business standpoint. People outside the wrestling world looking in have been baffled by the way Vince does stuff for years.

  • Just emptied The Boy’s piggy bank and there’s like $700 in there. This was a productive year for 4 year olds.

    • Aaron

      Put in a fund with a decent return rate, that’s his first car.

      • College fund.

        • Aaron

          Also a good move.

        • That’ll probably buy his textbooks then.

          For a semester.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        He’s gonna bust Daddy’s kneecaps for invading his stash.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Hmm. This sounds like the beginning of Goodfellas.

      • JosephM

        Are you suggesting Mahn beats his kid with a belt?

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          A visit from his son’s new friends would solve that problem.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Seriously, I think your son might be in the mob, dude.

      • Aaron

        On the plus side, Dad didn’t see the pictures.

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          Or the gun hidden in the teddy bear.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    Reading about some of the petty, nonsensical shit Trump & his team are doing for the Inauguration. Why the hell are they relieving the head of the DC National Guard of his duty during the swearing-in? They replaced the veteran Inauguration Parade announcer. They’re forcing all ambassadors to resign before the inauguration instead of after as has been the standard courtesy for years.

    Trump’s just waving his dick around and pissing on every little thing that most people barely pay attention to.

    • Aaron

      Going off on John Lewis over MLK weekend was not a good PR move. Yes, Lewis said his piece but maybe you let it go.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        Trump, letting things go?

        LOL

        • The Dems may have stumbled onto the best philosophy to keep Trump from getting things done — have a Dem insult him in an interview every few days, Trump responds on twitter and nothing gets done. Lather rinse repeat.

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            No joke — somebody is going to do this! He’s going to go in for an important foreign conference and spend the entire tine complaining about an article in the Washington Post.

          • Aaron

            Dick Durbin, you’re up! Mr. Trump will be sure to go all caps on “Dick”.

      • Edward M

        Trump got elected 2 weeks after being caught on tape talking about how he likes to grope women’s pussies without consent. I don’t think there is such a thing as bad PR for Trump.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          He’s just an average American telling it like it is!

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      This sounds like the stuff dictators do right before they seize power.

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        Seriously, the stuff involving the National Guard, other security measures, looks like the first 20 minutes of a Die Hard movie. Like, there’s going to be a distraction explosion, while Trump steals the Declaration of Independence…

        • RudoWakening

          Or somebody that has been following the whole will shoot him

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            Fake shooting, while someone yells “look out — Hillary has a gun!” Puzzled “what?” look on her face…

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Jeez, it’s almost like he was a business huckster who ran for President just for the dick swinging power!

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        Thing is, this stuff is being done by people who have worked in Washington and in theory should know better. Yeah, he’s the boss but their job is to say “well sir, maybe we shouldn’t do that” and they clearly can’t or won’t.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Pats/Texans is like the Brock vs Bob Holly for the WWE Championship in terms of prestige

    • Edward M

      I liked how on the Now Way Out PPV following it, Brock acted like he was scared of Bob Holly, despite the fact he destroyed Holly in a squash match the previous month.

      • If you’re gonna go to the trouble of booking the match, you’ve gotta at least make it good. Show Holly belongs in the ring with Brock and maybe you can do something with Bob after.

        • Edward M

          It was supposed to be a 15 minute match, but then they cut it to 6 minutes to give more time to HHH-HBK at the last minute. But then HBK-HHH ended up being a boring slog, so it was a lose-lose all around. Benoit saved that PPV

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Normally Id agree….but it’s Bob Holly. It went the way it should have

          • If you’re investing FOUR MONTHS OF TV into the story, the match shouldn’t be a six minute squash.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            Never felt that way to me. It always felt like “We need to kill time for Brock until Eddie, who can we use?” and they remembered Holly breaking his neck from sandbagging and threw him in there.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      *HHH/Taka

      • Edward M

        Taka was about 16 years too early coming to WWE.

      • That was a throwaway match on TV, not 4 months of TV build.

  • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    It’s crazy how wonderfully the table was set for President Schwarzenegger and sad how quickly it went to shit.

    • That need for a constitutional amendment really fucked him over

    • He can’t be presdient, he wasn’t born in this country.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        The GOP would have passed that amendment quick, fast and in a hurry. “We’re doing it for The Dreamers!”

  • PhilStubington

    Well that was a very satisfactory afternoon. Nice easy 2-0 win and we move up two places in the league.

  • Is this Europe tourney going to be worth watching?

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    The Dark Knight had the perfect summation of the election, esp when you read the tweets of professed Trump voters who are begging him to start acting Presidential

    https://i.imgflip.com/zvuaf.jpg

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Trump voters realizing they fucked up?

  • Republicans, Democrats, independents can all agree on one thing:

    the 1999 Rumble is objectively the goddamn worst.

    • Bones

      Ehhhh 2014 and 2015 say hello

      • Aaron

        I can’t hear them over the boos.

      • The individual matches maybe. But for whole shows, 1999 is awful. 2014 has a good Bryan/Bray match and 2015 has an awesome triple threat.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak
    • Edward M

      Can’t say that when there have Rumbles in the past few years that ended with the crowd chanting “refund.” The 1999 at least had the crowd’s support.

  • Aaron

    I wish they threw in a random UK old-timer for variety. Dave Taylor can probably still go.

    And Rosanne’s version is pretty damn good as well:

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    So was that Nintendo Switch event as bad/underwhelming as people are making it out to be? I hear Nintendo’s stock is taking a beating.

    • Edward M

      3 Hours of Battery life, 32 GB of memory, 300 bucks (more expensive than the lower model PS4 and Xbox one), no real third party support, and now having to pay for Nintendo’s lackluster online doesn’t make for a good showing.

      • Why does it need a battery? Don’t you plug it in?

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Its a portable console

        • Edward M

          Its supposed to be portable, in essence its supposed to be a fixed version of the Wii U, (AKA a tablet controller you can plug into the TV and play there or play on the go). 3 hours of battery life kind of ruins that.

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        Isn’t there also a huge performance drop when you undock it? 40% resolution drop or something like that?

        It’s an overpriced portable device, yet also a weak console… who is this system for?

        • Edward M

          The tablet can only do 720p, so that’s probably the reason they think the performance drop in portable mode doesn’t matter. To be fair, 720p should still look pretty good on a screen that size.

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            It’s all tech stuff over my head, I just heard a few weeks back people saying the whole portable mode is only worth it if the price is low, which we now know won’t be.

      • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

        I can’t see that doing well in an Xbox/Playstation world.

        • Edward M

          I’m a Nintendo fanboy, so I will definately get it for the Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Smash Bros, etc games. But god dammit, there’s no need for the system. I wish Nintendo just went third party and released these games on the Xbox and Playstation instead, so I didn’t need to buy a useless console just to play Nintendo games. But I’ll still buy it, because that Mario game looks damn good.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Super Mario and Zelda looked amazing, but the price and battery life makes me leery. It absolutely needs to be less than the big boys, shouldve been $249

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      It’s gonna cost like $650 Canadian to get the console, an extra controller, and a game.

      Fuck off, you’re most of the way to buying a PC at that point.

    • wnyxmcneal

      1999 has two things that make me pee my pants laughing. 2014 I won money at so we’re cool.

        2015 was blatant trolling, agree 100%.

          “Shattered Dreams” can’t have been a coincidence.

            Even little things like having Bubba come out…crowd chants for D-Von, no R-Truth will play the role of black guy who gets tables.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    I know the PS4 is three years in and can afford a price drop, but my folks just got me a PS4 bundled with Uncharted 4 for $249. A Switch that doesnt sound like it will be bundled with anything substantial (so tack on another $60+ for a game you will play) for $299 feels like its “PS3 will retail for 599 US Dollars” moment.

    • WWF1987

      Plus the game library is very small.

    • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

      My fuckin’ Target had PS4s on an endcap with that sale for like a month, taunting me. With my discount I’d knock it down to about $200. Ultimately I was able to resist, for now.

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    So, Shibata cheats on his wife and everyone wonders if he’ll get suspended from NJPW/shave his head/lose all his title matches in penance for this, and thats all fine speculation aice that all has, in real life, happened to Japenese wrestlers for this,

    but the comments on the article are claiming something I’ve never heard for the wrestling indusrty–that Okada might have a “no girlfriend” clause? Legit I think that’s absurd because how could that effect drawing as a wrestler and why would he agree to that…but I know Japanese musicians have to sign those deals so I’d buy it if anyone had actual proof.

    • WWF1987

      Rumor is that Goto is involved, too. This could be a big mess.

      • Aaron

        Goto can’t win.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          Goto must suffer

          • Aaron

            HHH will sympathize.

    • Aaron

      Okada would have beaten up Gedo for a shoot by now. I’m sure he’s just asked to keep it quiet. Tana is married with kids.

    • Wavy Gravy

      If this happened Stateside, Vince would probably push him to the moon.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        Literally already did.

        Edge.

        • Wavy Gravy

          Cena, too.

          As an aside, I HATED Edge when that shit went down.Then he turned out to be awesome and became my favorite guy on the roster in those years..

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      Didn’t WWE kill the Wyatt-stalks-Roman’s-family angle because they were afraid highlighting that Reigns was married would hurt his merch sales amongst women?

    • Thebraziliankid

      I can definitely see a “No girlfriend” clause for Okada, J-pop groups do that with girls, they must be forever “single”.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    I assume there’ll be a massive undersupply of Switch consoles at launch as well. An entire case full of games, a rack full of accessories… and 4 console units per retailer.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I doubt there’ll be any on the shelves this holiday when Mario drops

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        The first year of the Wii you couldn’t get one at my Walmart. A whole year. Scalpers snapped them up every week.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Yeah it took a long time before you finally saw a steady stock of them

    • WWF1987

      There’s been a bunch popping up on retailer’s sites. I can’t imagine why anyone would want one at launch outside of playing the new Zelda.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Scalpers, Nintendo marks, and people who just want to have one.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Zelda and Mario Kart in the first two months will make it sell out. I know a couple of folks who pre-ordered as soon as they were available post-conference

  • RedStorm

    St. John’s has about 15 freshman on their roster. This team could be good in a few years.

    • Devin Harris

      Or they could have 15 freshmen on their roster again next year

      • RedStorm

        Nah Lavin is gone so they won’t have all one and dones. Mullin can actually cultivate an offense and people can grow.

        • Devin Harris

          We’ll see. It’s just hard building long-term continuity with kids that really don’t want to be in school.

          • Aaron

            I don’t know if those are the kids St. John’s would recruit. They’re not big enough.

          • Devin Harris

            To keep pace in the Big East you need at least some one and dones. I’d say have a mix of four year guys and big recruits, if possible.

          • RedStorm

            Oh no I agree with that. But Lavin used to just recruit the best talent and throw them out on the floor and hope for the best. None of these guys for St. John’s are next level guys but they’re good team and system guys. Hopefully they all stick.

    Ways to ruin the Royal Rumble
    1. Kenny Omega debuts but is instantly eliminated by Sheamus
    2. Kurt Angle Debuts, but collapses in a seizure in the middle of the ring
    3.Cena and Reigns both lose their matches, and enter the Rumble as a result, and are the final two.
    4. HHH wins again.
    5. Braun Strowman wins and breaks the record for eliminations

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        Vince: Cut ’em a check, pal, I’ve got bigger problems to deal with!

        HHH: …Seinfeld?
        Vince: Yeah, that’s the one! HAHAHAHAHA! Kramer!

    • Brian_Bayless

      Kenny is under contract with NJPW until 1/31.

      • Edward M

        Cena has been posting the same vague crap about Omega that he did about AJ Styles before last year’s rumble. Maybe something got worked out.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          Not for the rumble it didn’t.

          Kidani is talking western expansion and war on Vince.

          NJPW isn’t letting him go a minute before the deal is up if he is going.

    Vince is smart?

    – As previously reported, The Wrestling Observer reported that WWE looking into booking a match between John Cena and The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33. However, Vince McMahon is said to have instead changed his mind about the match and pulled it from the card. The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer later followed-up on the news on his Twitter account in response to a fan question. According to Meltzer, McMahon has a different vision of the show and is thinking more of the WWE’s future in the long term

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Roman will wrestle in every match. Then people will like him.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Vince thinking long term? That’s clearly just a rumor.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Unfortunately, that future is Roman Reigns.

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        YUP.

    • I don’t see either Undertaker or Cena putting a newcomer over though.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Unless it’s Finn?

    • Edward M

      If your main show is gonna be loaded with part timers, you might as well book it to draw as much as possible. Not doing Cena vs Taker is throwing away money.

      • WWF1987

        What money? It’s going to sellout no matter what. Plus, most of the PPV orders will come from Network subscriptions which I’m sure will sell anyways.

        • Edward M

          If they have Cena vs Taker, Big Show vs Shaq, and Goldberg vs Lesnar all on the same card, that’s the way to get the most casual or lapsed fans to subscribe. These are all big names they recognize. Doing Cena vs Samoa Joe and Taker vs AJ won’t do that (if that’s their plan for example).

    • Rowlf

      I bet they’ll have Taker put Reigns over. Cena may face Joe, and beat him, of course…don’t want Joe getting a big head.

      • Edward M

        Taker putting over Reigns is only good if it comes with a heel turn for Reigns, because he will get booed out of the building. Of course it won’t, so its a terrible plan.

  • Ken Shamrock stands around for two minutes, injured Billy Gunn comes to the ring without a shoe, and still-in-the-match Mr. McMahon is on commentary.

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    Apperently Shibata might be shit talking individual fans in his exchanges with this woman. That’s not great.

  • Devin Harris

    If I were going to push Roman as a face I would tell the announcers and wrestlers to stop selling the boos. Just pretend he’s the biggest face that ever faced.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Kind of hard to ignore them.

      • Devin Harris

        Not really. It’s easy. Ignore it

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          Then they’ll just do stuff like turning their backs on the ring or throwing trash and stuff.

          WWE created this monster, now they have to figure out how to control it.

          • Devin Harris

            they are not going to throw trash. They’ve been showing up and booing for two years. This monster is under complete control.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      You’d basically have to stop doing live shows.

      • Devin Harris

        You don’t have to acknowledge it. Just pretend it isn’t happening.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          It just makes everyone involved look bad.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          People shit all over then for that too. That’s what they tried first and people just booed him more.

          It’s insulting to the audiences intelligence.

          • Devin Harris

            He’s still being pushed as a face so there really isn’t a difference.

        • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

          They can barely cut promos and stuff now without getting “What?” chants. This just sounds like asking for trouble.

          • Devin Harris

            I hear ya. This has been going on for two years. It’s not making much difference anyway so they basically have been ignoring it

      • Rowlf

    • Aaron

      If I were going to push Roman as a face I’d have him act like one.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Too bad no one knows how to write for faces anymore.

      • Devin Harris

        Never thought of that, but it’s irrelevant at this point. He’s not that bad now but people have already made their minds up on him

      • Brian_Bayless

        The WWE has a major problem in that it can create heels but has no clue what makes a babyface today.

    • Wavy Gravy

      ‘They’re not booing, they’re chanting Roman!’
      ‘It sounds like booing.’
      ‘I’ve had a cold.’
      ‘…So you hear B’s as R’s?’
      ‘Yes.’

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        So how do you know they’re not chanting for Rusev?

    • slapdabass

      They should book him like 911 and just have him run in during Titus and Curtis axel matches.

    • Edward M

      Ignoring the fans is a terrible business strategy. The only reason WWE gets away with it is they have no competition. If they ignored fans in 1997 in regards to Austin, WWE would have been toast.

      • Devin Harris

        I’m not saying it’s smart. I’m saying if this is what they are going to do then fully commit to it.

            Holy shit I remember that game. That was awful how bad the refs jobbed them out.

      I don’t think I’ve met a certain type of wrestling fan who isn’t a complete dick in some way. The smugness of anti-WWE fans gets to me as well.

      Most annoying WWE fans I’ve met aren’t as hateful, IMO.

      • Devin Harris

        I’m not anti-WWE. I’m a WWE fan that will only watch what interest me. I don’t understand showing up to arenas just to throw a temper tantrum. That’s not how you get someone’s attention.

        • Brian_Bayless

          WWE live crowds are not passionate today at all though. They boo Reigns when he comes out then pretty much stay quiet for his match.

          Uninvested fans are the worst thing you can have if performing in front of a live crowd.

          Sure, they can make money but as far as creating a product you can get invested in, they are not doing that.

          • Devin Harris

            WWE crowds are basically large live studio audiences. It really doesn’t matter to WWE why you are there or what you do when you get there.

          • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

            I think it matters to Vince because of ego. If not, they would just do the WCW Disney tapings approach.

          • Devin Harris

            As long as it’s paid attendance I really don’t think they care.

          • Brian_Bayless

            WWE has an advantage as wrestling is down overall and they pretty much have a monopoly in the US. No one else with money is going to try and compete.

            They can do what they want and if you want to see live wrestling, its the only option for many fans.

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

    This was its own topic last week but I think Cena vs Miz at Mania 33 is a great idea. The circumstances are totally different from Mania 27 and I believe both characters are in a better place for it to work. Miz needs to win again though, assuming Cena is gone again after it.

        They’ll likely never fix that.

        • Clark O’Brien

          Doubt they can afford the software.

    • PhilStubington

      It was showing me local times earlier when I looked at the schedule.

      What’s bugging me at the moment is that the live feed is just showing totally random shit, not what’s advertised.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Guess I’ll watch some of the UK Tourney today.

    • PhilStubington

      starts in 20.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Just put on the live stream.

        Really interested to see who will win. Dunne, Andrews, Bate, and Seven have to be the favorites.

    • Mikey

      When does that start?

    • Aaron

      Sounds like it’ll be full of Limeys.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Nice, they are showing Savage’s “Cream of the Crop” promo on the Network live stream

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Totally forgot to eat yesterday. I should get Burger King today..

    • Grampa Bensouda Stomper X

      Maybe you’re overdoing the drugs.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Nah. I don’t think you can smoke enough pot that you forget to eat. Pot and eating kinda go hand and hand.

  • Aaron

    Mississippi State’s baseline says Stark Vegas. Way to not get the joke.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Is Ioan going to today’s show?

    • PhilStubington

      No tomorrow’s.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Is he writing a recap of today’s show?

        • PhilStubington

          Not sure, but I got the impression not since he said he was traveling up there to meet a friend today.

          • Brian_Bayless

            I might do a recap but not sure yet.

  • RawisStoned

    So the girlfriend confirmed what I already kind of pretty much knew. She’s a virgin. Going to have to proceed gently with this.

  • Aaron

    The UK show needs a heel like “The Eastern European Handyman”.

    • Adam Wright

      Or “The American”

      • Brian_Bayless

        Billy Joe Trump

        • Aaron

          Jervis is ready

      • Aaron

        Too generic. Gotta tap into the Zeitgeist.

    • Brian_Bayless

      The Turkish Dentist, Yusuf Yankem

  • Brian_Bayless

    The PROGRESS ring is so tiny

  • Be. Are. See.

    They need to turn subtitles on when most of these guys are talking.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Pete Dunne is awesome.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Danny Burch was a former WWE Developmental wrestler.

  • Brian_Bayless

    The last guy shown as the Regal facial expressions down pat.

  • Aaron

    “I am Wladimir. I was called by council here for making of toilet bowl vork.”

    “BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”

  • Brian_Bayless

    Roddy was coked out of his mine there.

    • Be. Are. See.

      That could describe most of the eighties for Piper, though.

      • RawisStoned

        I was gonna say when was Roddy NOT coked out of his mind

        • Adam Wright

          Occasionally he did other drugs instead.

          • RawisStoned

            I can’t see him as much of a heroin user. Meth maybe

    • Most of the UK fans they’re showing here seem coked out of their minds…

  • RedStorm

    Zebras are handing UNC this game once FSU came back. Time to find something else to watch.

  • Adam Wright

    I love the coverage the UK fans & their chanting is getting in this preview.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Ah, back when Dynamite had his teeth and you could understand him better.

    • RawisStoned

      There was a time you could understand the Dynamite Kid?

    • Adam Wright

      Once a twat, always a twat.

      • PhilStubington
        • RawisStoned

          I loved how he courted Bret’s Wife’s sister. “I’d shag that.”

          • Adam Wright

            Normal English pick-up line.

          • PhilStubington

            Sounds about right for a council estate lad from Wigan.

          • RawisStoned

            It was direct and to the point

      • RawisStoned

        To his credit he owned it.

  • Mikey
  • Brian_Bayless

    Looking forward to see Nigel on commentary.

    • Be. Are. See.

      Not looking forward to Cole doing the show with him, though.

      • Brian_Bayless

        If they do not overproduce Cole, he is fine.

        When he’s overproduced, you can hear the life being sucked out of him.

        • PhilStubington

          Hopefully we get the Cole from the Tokyo show.

      • Cole can be REALLY good, especially when Vince isn’t in his ear, like during the Japan show.

      • Adam Wright

        Cole can be really good, when he’s not having to shoehorn dozens of catchphrases and brandings into every sentence.

    • maskedcabana

      10 years too late, but it’s good to see he made it to the WWE.

      • Brian_Bayless

        He failed medical testing then went to TNA. Wonder how he would have fared.

        • maskedcabana

          He did really well in TNA but got held back when the Hogan regime came in. He could have been a star for them.

  • Adam Wright

    The fact that they used footage of Jordan Devlin pinning the first World Of Sport champion Dave Mastiff amused me. It’s lucky that they randomly picked that footage to show.

  • RedStorm

    Oh the Vietnam War in color. I know what I’m doing this afternoon.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Too bad Nigel’s career was cut short. I liked him a lot

    • PhilStubington

      Anyone who decides to bust themselves open hard-way by head-butting the ring post multiple times is asking to have their career fucked.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Hepatitis B is a career killer

        • PhilStubington

          Hep B. Concussions, all sorts of other shit as well.

  • wnyxmcneal

    Jennifer Holliday has canceled her appearance at Donald Trump’s inauguration event next week, calling her decision to perform a “lapse of judgement.”
    In an open letter, provided exclusively to TheWrap, the “Dreamgirls” star apologized to the LGBT community, saying she was “uneducated on the issues that affect every American at this crucial time in history and for causing such dismay and heartbreak to my fans.”

    The GOP is not the most gay friendly party??? OMG WTF???

    • Adam Wright

      How can Trump being anti-LGBT be something you weren’t previously aware of?

      • wnyxmcneal

        I actually don’t think Trump is really that anti-LGBT. The guy grew up in New York City.

        Mike Pence on the other hand….

        • He’s much more LGBT-friendly than the rest of his adopted party, but he’s allowing a lot of anti-gay rights people to run amok within the federal government, which is going to be the bigger problem. Trump will be off doing whatever the fuck he wants while these assholes are trying to burn the place down.

          • wnyxmcneal

            Yea, Trump personally I think could give a fuck if two dudes get married but he’s not doing anything to help the two dudes get married

          • RawisStoned

            Of course Trump isn’t anti gay. My guess is he made a lot of money from rich gays renting/buying his NYC apartments

      • RedStorm

        Trump isn’t, it’s the Republican Party and Pence. Trump has openly said nothing will change with gay rights.

      • PhilStubington

        well Jackie Evancho doesn’t seem to have got the bloody memo yet.

    • Way to admit you’re never paying attention to what’s happening in the world.

      • wnyxmcneal

        She performed at a WWF PPV.

      • Brian_Bayless

        This reeks of “my agent is telling me to do this because my career will be effected and I personally do not give two shits.”

  • JAWAS ♥ SMOAK

    This thread wasn’t showing up on my phone; I only noticed it once I opened my laptop. Discus strikes again!

    • Brian_Bayless

      The mobile doesnt update new posts and does not keep pinned posts at the top of the page.

      Its awful

  • Be. Are. See.

    ALL HHHAIL!

  • RawisStoned

    Why doesn’t Trump just get Ted Nugent to perform at the inauguration? Seriously

  • Brian_Bayless

    Hot crowd.

    • Adam Wright

      Always going to be.

  • maskedcabana

    It’s that dastardly heel HHH. Is he going to reveal why he screwed over Rollins?!?

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Never! Muhahahahaha!

    • RawisStoned

      “He couldn’t do anything without my help so he doesn’t deserve my help anymore.”

      It’s that simple really.

      • AnInternetToughGuy

        Yes. It is.
        And yet…. Still hasn’t been uttered on air (to my knowledge)

  • Adam Wright

    Now that’s a venue!

  • Be. Are. See.

    That’s one hell of a place for a wrestling event.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Too bad Michael Cole has to be there.

    • Adam Wright

      Legitimate listed building. Held everything from Prime Minsters addresses to Darts tournaments.

      • itwastyped

        Bobby Roode would be pleased

      • Aaron

        ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY!

        • Adam Wright

          Can’t beat a bit of Bully.

  • maskedcabana

    Grapple fans? That’s some new branding.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Loving the energy and look of the arena.

  • PhilStubington

    Love the Empress Ballroom. Amazing building.

  • itwastyped

    Blackpool is a bit of a shit hole, surprised they didn’t do this in London. Great venue though

    • PhilStubington

      Long wrestling tradition and plenty of indie fans in the area (RoH run a lot of shows in the North West). They knew they’d easily sell it out.

    • Adam Wright

      the North West is a real hotbed for wrestling. Plus this gives it a unique venue and a unique look.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Smart move to have Burch paired with the guy Balor trained.

  • wnyxmcneal

    Ted Cruz turned down a SCOTUS appointment

    • Brian_Bayless

      Good for us.

    • Who the fuck would put Ted fucking Cruz on SCOTUS? Jesus.

      • Aaron

        Who else?

    • Kenny_Reigns

      That might be the best news I’ve ever heard in my life.

  • Roman Reigns Winky Face

    Inspired by the TV theme post, I went through and listened to all the Raw themes. Nobody listens to nu fucking metal anymore and it hasn’t been viable since 2002, but this company will keep these bands in business for the next 20 years.

  • PhilStubington

    Plus they ran the Empress Ballroom on the last but one NXT tour so they know the set-up and that it would work.

  • Adam Wright

    Remember World Of Sport started their “Revival” with an awful match between Dave Mastiff & Grado.
    Contrast & Compare.

    • PhilStubington

      Professionals vs a bunch of fucking amateurs.

  • Be. Are. See.

    I know Dyer has absolutely no chance here, but I kinda like his look.

    • PhilStubington

      Danger it gets a bit too RoH – too many guys in generic black trunks.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Smart move to put Seven in the opening match

  • I’m from Cambridge (which isn’t in the East Midlands) and I’ve never heard of HC Dyer. Then again it might be like Marty Scurll where he’s from a nearby town and is just billed from here.

  • Adam Wright

    that chop into the post sounded brutal.

  • How long is this show supposed to go today?

    • Be. Are. See.

      Network schedule shows two hours.

      • PhilStubington

        Eight first round matches at average of 15 minutes (including intros and some hype videos) each makes two hours.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Dyer is impressing me

  • maskedcabana

    Cole and Nigel working pretty well together.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Fun opening match

  • Driving to Madison. Wife getting piercings. May get a new TV.

    ‘murica.

    Later BoD.

    • Aaron

      Fun town.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Good match so far.

  • Adam Wright

    I’m really enjoying the commentary here.

    • PhilStubington

      Nigel’s a pro.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Nigel is announcing? Now I have to watch…dammit.

        • I figured you’d be all over this weekend.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I am now. I don’t enjoy the WWE presentation style, but I enjoy Nigel a lot.

          • These shows are always presented differently than what is on the USA Network and the monthly PPVs. It’s like they actually try. It’s weird.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I’m loving this so far. I did not enjoy the presentation of the CWC. There were too many graphics, too many interview packages recreated over and over, and the crowds were anemic. This show is awesome so far!

          • Getting out of Full Sail and not using students who are studying TV production probably also helps this show…

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Vince must not be in Cole’s ear.

      • Adam Wright

        Is he even in the UK?

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          I’m thinking not.

          • I assume he’s getting ready for A) Raw and SmackDown and B) his buddy’s inauguration next Friday.

    • Aaron

      Cole is fine on his own.

  • Be. Are. See.

    I’d be perfectly fine with Dyer getting an NXT run.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Get Dyer in NXT asap. That kid has something.

  • Brian_Bayless

    **1/2. Fun opener.

    • PhilStubington

      Looks about right. Hard to give it more given the running time constraints they are under for the first round.

    • Adam Wright

      You don’t want anything shocking or amazing for your opening match in this kind of show. Something decent to introduce the style/presentation.

      • Brian_Bayless

        It served its purpose and the crowd was invested.

  • PhilStubington

    Good opener – they gave Dyer plenty of offense so he’ll be credible if they use him in future.

  • maskedcabana

    I like the Seven Nation Army ripoff theme they’re using.

  • Adam Wright

    Jordan Devlin is my pick for winner.

    • Brian_Bayless

      He’s definitely gonna get a push. And smart move putting him in with a veteran in the 1st round.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Either Dunne or Bate for me.

    • PhilStubington

      Pretty sure Pete Dunne will get a decent run – they’ll need some good heels in the later rounds.

      • Adam Wright

        it’s not a storyline based tournament though. They could have all faces in the Quarters and it wouldn’t matter.

        • PhilStubington

          In theory yes – but I think seven face vs face matches on day two would be very hard to book.

    • Be. Are. See.

      I was thinking Andrews, but I really have no idea.

  • Be. Are. See.

    Is it just me or is Devlin’s head too large for his body?

    • Aaron

      It’s in the genes.

    • Adam Wright

      The neck is too long.

    • itwastyped

      He looks like a CAW that’s not quite finished

  • Aaron

    Prince Devlin.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Devlin seems REALLY nervous

    • Brian_Bayless

      Burch has worked a lot around the Southern Indies lately as Martin Stone. He’s a good talent.

  • Aaron

    I like how they’re quickly defining faces and heels. Having never seen Devlin I can still tell Burch is the heel.

    • maskedcabana

      Seems like Burch is playing face here.

    • Adam Wright

      Devlin is meant to be heel.

      • Aaron

        Whoops. I’m an idiot.

  • Adam Wright

    It’ll be interesting to watch the video intro for Mark Andrews. Think they’ll mention his TNA run?

    • Be. Are. See.

      I highly doubt it. They tend to ignore TNA at all costs, just like most fans.

  • Oliver Grey still uses his NXT Twitter handle even though he uses a different name on the indies lol.

  • The Rabid One

    The Philosophy of Darth Vader. I like it

  • Brian_Bayless

    Devlin kinda sucks, IMO

    • Be. Are. See.

      At least he’s getting good heat.

    • Adam Wright

      he’s normally a lot better.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Pretty sharp drop off from the first match.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Chinlock city here

  • itwastyped

    Did Cole just call them the WWE fans instead of the WWE universe

    • PhilStubington

      Yes twice.

    • The Rabid One

      I think they are transitioning from universe to fans

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    So many restholds.

  • Adam Wright

    I don’t understand why you would use restholds in this kind of match. Show off what you can do!

    • PhilStubington

      Unless they were told to slow it down to avoid all the matches have the same pacing.

    • Oprah Brokeamnesia

      Reminds me of WCW:

      “30 seconds left!”
      Goes to chinlock.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Burch is carrying this match

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Butch seems like he would have been a better heel here.

    • PhilStubington

      Yeah I thought that was the way they were going to go.

  • maskedcabana

    Ugly looking cut.

  • Adam Wright

    Ugly sequence here. I’m disappointed with Devlin to be honest.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Wow

  • Aaron

    Oh, bad luck there.

  • Be. Are. See.

    Yikes. How’d he get cut?

  • Clark O’Brien

    Weird that Burch is wrestling a living Pop vinyl figure of Balor.

  • Mikey

    Go Falcons. Go Pats

  • What the fuck happened there?

    • Aaron

      Blood, it appears.

  • The Rabid One

    Come on, Eddie Guerrero survived through worse. Thank you England for the Bull Shit chant

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    He got his shoulder up, but the stoppage is obvious.

  • Brian_Bayless

    That’s a gash on the back of his head. Burch did all he could but Devlin is not ready for prime time. *1/2.

    • Adam Wright

      He was screwing up stuff he normally hits smooth. Really showing his nerves here.

  • TASBot: Wrecking your childhood memories since 2014.

  • The Rabid One

    You Brits, keep being you and tell it like it is.

  • Aaron

    I doubt Birch Bics his head ever again.

  • Be. Are. See.

    I appreciate the heelin’, Mr. Devlin.

  • maskedcabana

    That’s a good heeling.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    That was nice, anyway.

  • PhilStubington

    So did that kick open him up hardway?

    • Adam Wright

      Yeah.

    • Aaron

      It looks like he hit a razor bump and bled out.

    • Oprah Brokeamnesia

      Yep. Hardway.

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia

    Not too good on the second match… *1/2

    Botched finish too…

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Is this the robot? Not looking like a robot?

  • Brian_Bayless

    This Devlin kid can heel it up at least but still stinks in the ring.

    • Clark O’Brien

      He’s normally less sloppy. I’d say his confidence is his biggest flaw to be honest.

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia

    Devlin has a punchable face, and I mean that in a good way.

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia

    Saxon worked for us in Edmo/Calgary with PWA.

    Lance Storm student, so I’m pulling for him as a dark horse.

  • Aaron

    Nothing like a motto right over the penis.

  • Adam Wright

    One criticism, so far everyone has had very dull generic ring attire. They are introducing themselves to a brand new audience, I’d expect some of them to have unique and memorable looks.

    • PhilStubington

      I said the same thing down thread. Too many black trunks.

      • Oprah Brokeamnesia

        Black trunks and black boots will never get over – Eric Bischoff

    • Brian_Bayless

      Mustache Mountain!

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Pretty much all black so far.

    • Oprah Brokeamnesia

      Possibly do it tomorrow with the semis and finals? I’d dig it.

    • The bald guy in there now has decent gear.

  • The Rabid One

    Somebody better dress up as King Arthur and call his manager Lady Lake

  • The Rabid One

    Huxley should have been dressed like Robin Hood

  • Aaron

    “I’m the Muscle Cat because I’m smart!”

  • Adam Wright

    WWE doing something on social media, that sound interesting.
    What world is this?

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      A world without Vince.

    • PhilStubington

      Don’t mind it if its something like that – a Q&A straight after the event.

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia
  • Edward M

    HHH will be live following the event. Have Rollins surprise attack him. They should have been doing this for months. If HHH refuses to show on Raw, Rolling should be following HHH to his events. Its better than being a pussy who does nothing for 5 months after being betrayed. Just a terrible feud all around.

    • Oprah Brokeamnesia

      You’ve put far too much thought into it.

      (Well far more than creative.)

      • Edward M

        I just remember everything Austin did to McMahon. HHH vs Rollins is like the exact opposite.

        • Oprah Brokeamnesia

          At least HHH will show some ass, Invincible Steph has turned me off Raw completely.

          • Edward M

            And Steph didn’t used to be this way. I remember in 2000-2001, She took the finishing move from nearly every main eventer and got called every name in the book from Y2J and The Rock. I dont know what happened to her in the past decade and a half. She used to know how to be a heel.

          • Hayden

            Insecurity.

  • Be. Are. See.

    So…much…singing…that….I…can’t….understand.

    • Adam Wright

      Lets go Jesus. Jesus sucks.

      • Be. Are. See.

        Oh no, I got that one.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      I’m glad I’m not the only one.

  • Adam Wright

    Big rumour is that either tonight or in tomorrows show they’ll announce Regal for the Hall of Fame.

    • P.K.

      What a joke…Regal is nothing but a drug addicted kiss ass that is only around because he sucks HHH’s dick…

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia

    Let’s go Jesus!
    Jesus sucks!

    I love, love the UK fans.

  • The Rabid One

    Jesus….. Christ…….

  • Aaron

    Is this Ring of Glory?

  • slapdabass

    Watching NJPW on AXS and saw an ad for farmersonly.com, which is a dating site for “country men and women.” I don’t think they know their audience very well.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Hillbillies love wrestling.

    • Aaron

      A lot of other AXS programing is classic rock and bad MMA. It’s definitely a white people’s station.

      • slapdabass

        It also featured the least attractive people I’ve ever seen in a dating site ad. “use farmers only and you, too, can find a moderately attractive Toby Keith fan.”

        • Aaron

          You city folks (wink wink) just don’t understand.

  • Adam Wright

    I’m sat here giggling away at the songs. This is Brilliant.

    • PhilStubington

      They’re treading a fine line between being amusing and going into business for themselves.

      • Oprah Brokeamnesia

        Put the fans over enough on TV, and they believe their own hype.

        At least we’re not getting the Dunn cutaways to bored kids…

        • Adam Wright

          Fans are invested and vocal. They are creating a different atmosphere from the normal US shows. This is what you want.

      • Aaron

        It’s still concentrated on the match.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        The English are soccer obsessed and do this shit at games.

        It’s how they watch sports, and it’ll happen if they’re invested or not.

  • Aaron

    Ah, the butterfly suplex.

  • Did I miss anything intersting in the first 40 minutes of the UK show?

    • maskedcabana

      Jesus is over in Blackpool.

      • He did have nice abs.

        • maskedcabana

          He also kicks out at 3.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Jesus songs

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia

    Hey hey Jesus… will you be my WHAT?

      It sounds like things aren’t trending the right way aftrr the opener?

  • P.K.

    NFL Pregame Show > 3rd World UK Wrestling

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    Why is the crowd singing about Jesus?

    • Aaron

      Huxley

    • PhilStubington

      Because the wrestlers have lost them.

    • Edward M

      Jesus would be a lousy wrestler. He doesn’t know how to sell. He even no sold being murdered by crucifixion.

      • Aaron

        Hell of a promo though.

  • Oprah Brokeamnesia

    Lifters… lifters everywhere!

  • Did everyone else’s feed just fast-foward to the finish?

  • Brian_Bayless

    Not much of a match. Neither guy impressed and they appeared to have bad chemistry.

  • The Rabid One

    Jesus is crucified again.

  • Be. Are. See.

    ‘Thank you Jesus’ chant at at WWE event. And I thought I saw it all.

  • Bald guy is going to get Benoit’d/Dynamite’d with that flying headbutt 🙁

  • MillstreamPigworker

    The crowd is becoming a problem.

    • Adam Wright

      They’re amazing. They’re making it unique.

    • PhilStubington

      Its just a typical British sporting crowd. Visiting fans at football matches can keep that up for an hour and half easy.

  • PhilStubington

    Yeah that didn’t quite hang together.

  • Adam Wright

    Not a fan of Diving Headbutts anymore. They should be banned.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Dave Taylor!

  • Aaron

    Dave Taylor!

  • Why’d they fly an annoying NXT crowd to England?

    • Adam Wright

      You go to England. You get an English crowd. You want the normal Raw atmosphere instead?

      • I guess I’m just tired of these indy crowds putting themselves over.

        • maskedcabana

          British sports fans in general are about annoying chanting.

        • PhilStubington

          Its NOT an indy crowd – its a British sporting crowd.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Can’t say I’ve seen much at that at the indie shows I’ve gone to.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Pete Dunne is awesome.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Pete Dunne is great!! Very excited for this!

      • PhilStubington

        I’ll be amazed if he doesn’t get at least to the semis.

  • P.K.

    Howie Long looks cool as fuck with the suit and basketball shoes on..

  • Aaron

    Dunne looks like Rik Mayall on steroids.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    Wavy is kind of old lingo.

    • Aaron

      Go get another $200 haircut, hipster.

  • Adam Wright

    Don’t know Roy Johnson but everything about him screams Brixton to me.

  • P.K.

    No doubt in my mind that 9 year old Evnika Saadvakass could knock Ronda Rousey out

  • Real wavy guys don’t enunciate their T’s like that.

    • Or have man buns. You aren’t about them ones there.

  • My live feed is shit.

  • Aaron

    Very King Kong Brody ring jacket there, Pete.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    Progress represent!

  • Kenny_Reigns

    They acknowledged Bryan’s and Nigel’s rivalry!!

  • PhilStubington

    Good that they are calling out the belts they hold.

  • The Rabid One

    nice suplex

  • Aaron

    I now want to see Johnson and Michel Elgin go.

  • Edward M

    That crowd is one of the biggest sausage fests since ECW. Do women not watch wrestling in the UK?

    • Adam Wright

      Apart from the women you can clearly see in the crowd you mean?

      • Edward M

        There’s about as many as black people at a Trump rally.

    • The Rabid One

      I’ve seen 2 chicks in the 3rd row

    • PhilStubington

      Frankly not seeing the women from Blackpool is no great loss.

    • maskedcabana

      Ugly British women usually look like men. It’s easy to get confused.

    • In Blackpool the ladies look like dudes.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Smart strategy. Work the arms of the power lifter

  • The Rabid One

    Got your nose

  • PhilStubington

    Nice change of style here.

  • Adam Wright

    Something always seems missing with Dunn. He’s good but he doesn’t have IT.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      He’s never been very charismatic. Great wrestler, though.

      • Adam Wright

        He seems like he’d be a great tag team guy.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          That’s a strong point.

          Have you seen him in Progress at all?

          • Adam Wright

            Never watched Progress.

    • I’m sure he has IT. Everyone has computers these days.

    • PhilStubington

      Think he needs to go through so they can do some submissions stuff in the later rounds.

  • Be. Are. See.

    *sigh* Come on Johnson, sell the hand.

  • Edward M

    Bad analogy Cole to talk about how something is oozing out of Johnson.

    • The Rabid One

      We’re not doing phrasing anymore??

  • He does Big E’s finisher better than E does.

  • Adam Wright

    Sleeper match. Far better than I expected.

    • The Rabid One

      It certainly flowed a lot better

  • The Rabid One

    Pump handle is not a pump handle if it’s not preceded by a little hip movement.

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Ya always have to have a little bumming with the pump handle.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Johnson’s selling was spotty and he’s still really green. **1/4

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Yeah…he was a bad partner for Dunne.

  • Adam Wright

    most of the guys tonight are working hella stiff. Normal for the UK.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      UK style is awesome! I love Progress and Rev Pro!

  • Some things about Dunne are very good (his chain wrestling, his mean streak). Some things need changing ASAP (His awful awful gear, his finisher – a flatliner is still dumb even if you get into it in a clever way). He’s got a lot of potential though.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      He usually makes people tap out. I don’t think I’ve seen him use a flatliner before.

  • PhilStubington

    I’d be surprised if we break *** in the first round given the short matches.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    So what we got here? British pro graps?

  • Edward M

    I watched the Okada vs Omega match last night. Pretty tremendous, but there were about 4-5 spots that would have been the finish any where else. Is this common for Japanese wrestling? Haven’t watched much of it.

  • maskedcabana

    We need some subtitles for this T-Bone guy.

  • Adam Wright

    Even I can barely understand this guy. God knows how the Americans are coping.

    • Cuppa tea for the big fella!

    • Be. Are. See.

      I just shake my head and ignore them.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    Progress shout out!!!! Woooo!!!

  • johntcole

    So Snatch wasn’t lying with that Brad Pitt accent huh

    • Adam Wright

      They downplayed Gyppos.

  • I have been saying for YEARS that Wrestling needed to steal the “Angry gypsy who makes youtube videos challenging people to fight” gimmick. Obviously they can’t go all the way with it, but this is fine.

  • PhilStubington

    Not sure who is going through on this match.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Cole & Nigel have been fantastic so far

    • Kenny_Reigns

      They really have been. Nigel’s always great, though. Hopefully he can avoid having Vince and HHH in his ear.

    • I’ve been impressed with Nigel. I don’t watch much ROH, but never been impressed with his ROH commentary from what I’ve seen.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Really? I always thought he was great in ROH.

        • I remember watching one show where guys were taking unprotected chairshots and Nigel started getting pretty whiny about it.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Well, yeah…he had a ton of concussions. It’s something he’s passionate about.

    • Cole has always been much better than he gets credit for.

      • Brian_Bayless

        HE’s good when not on RAW or PPV. When he gets freedom, he can do his job well.

        • JosephM

          I still love his sarcasm in response to something Vince is telling him in his headpiece, and then he quietly says ‘yes sir’. During one of those off satallite recording during a Smackdown commercial break.

  • Hulk Hogan namedrop!

  • johntcole

    Holy crap that’s not a good match Wolfgang

    • Adam Wright

      IYH:Degeneration X.
      Also featured a great Rock/Austin match just before either became huge.

      • JosephM

        That match was about 5 minutes, a fun piece of business, hardly a great match though.

        • That’s the match Sting and Hogan should have had at Starrcade given their limitations.

  • Hulk Hogan mentioned on live WWE TV.

    • He’ll be hosting WrestleMania, brother.

      • JosephM

        It’s great to be back at the SuperDome brothers! CitrusBowl, I meant Citrus bowl, dammit!

    • Edward M

      I’m expecting him to be a surprise at Wrestlemania. He’s out of the news, and racism is popular again because of Trump.

    • Vintage

      Sure, have the first mention of him on WWE TV since the incident be on MLK Day weekend, because of course.

  • Daniel O’Reilly

    Hulk Hogan tattoo.

  • Vintage

    What’s this I keep hearing about Jesus? Is this the sequel to the “Vince vs. God” feud?

    • Edward M

      Jesus is his father but really isn’t his father, which means he kind of impregnated his mom to create himself. Are we sure Russo didn’t write the Bible?

  • Be. Are. See.

    Enough of this wrestling shit, let’s fight.

  • Adam Wright

    That’s how you make the heel obvious.

  • PhilStubington

    And we finally get a shout out for ICW.

  • P.K.

    This might be the worst day in BOD History….All I see is lame comments about some shitty 3rd World tournament with ZERO stars in it…SMH…At least that New Jersey Pro Wrestling show in China had Billy Gunn…This is just sad…I will be back when the game starts because all this Eurotrash wrestling talk is making me nauseous…

    • Devin Harris

      Sad goes at the end of the rant

  • Kenny_Reigns

    I’ve never seen ICW, but it’s supposed to be some hard hitting stuff.

    • PhilStubington

      Scottish version of ECW is a lazy way of describing it – but not too far out.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I feel like I should watch it just to see it.

        • Well worth a look 🙂

  • johntcole

    I like Wolfgang

  • Brian_Bayless

    Wolfgang is impressive.

    • Clark O’Brien

      Plus he looks like a shorter, chubbier Kevin Nash.

  • JosephM

    So Wolfgang got a call from mid-ninties “born-again sober” Jake and THAT made him want to be a wrestler, heh.

  • Pikey guy should be the third Bushwhacker.

  • Be. Are. See.

    This is perfect card placement, too.

  • johntcole

    A British fan on my wrestling forum is calling major bullshit on Tyson’s accent

    • Adam Wright

      Sounds real to me for a Gyppo.

      • johntcole

        He claims he’s not an actual Gyppo, here’s what he said

        “Get fucked with that accent T-Bone, you’re from Malvern mate the only time you’ve seen a caravan was on family holidays to the Lake District.”

    • maskedcabana

      Are you telling me wrestling’s not on the up and up?!?

      • Be. Are. See.

        Say it ain’t so!

  • Kenny_Reigns

    I really enjoyed that match. I’m surprised

  • Brian_Bayless

    Good match. **3/4.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I’d go a full ***

  • JosephM

    I’m guessing these matches have 15 minute time limits.

    • Edward M

      They said they do.

  • Clark O’Brien

    Is Tyson T-Bone putting that accent on? I’ve got a whole family of Irish people and I cannot place what part that’s supposed to be from.

    • Adam Wright

      He’s not Irish, he’s Gypsy.

      • Clark O’Brien

        Ah right. Not that familiar with him. Really odd accent.

  • PhilStubington

    Good choice to go through. With him and Pete Dunne in there they have a good mix of styles. Will avoid the quarters becoming too cookie cutter.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    I’m excited for the Mark Andrews match. He can really wrestle outside of TNA.

  • PhilStubington

    That was a lot of fun.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Cole needs to stop talking to Wolfgang like he can hear him.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    This will be a dope match!

  • JosephM

    If Vince (and to a lesser extant HHH) weren’t so body image crazy, this Wolfgang guy might have got a look years earlier, an agile big guy is always worth a look.

  • johntcole

    Wolfgang probably earned himself a regular WWE deal.

    • PhilStubington

      He’d be a great addition to NXT – would bring a different look and style to it. ICW is a promo and story line heavy promotion so he should be able to adapt to the WWE.

  • I have a man bun a and a chunk of my ear missing so I have no idea who to root for here.

  • johntcole

    Pete Dunne is basically Finlay crossed with Marty Scurll.

  • PhilStubington

    Cole bigging this one up like mad.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Because they’re both awesome! They would hit **** easy if they had 20+ minutes!

      • PhilStubington

        Shame its a first rounder.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I was surprised by that when I saw it. I assumed they would make it the main.

  • I don’t get why the feed is being so shitty for me today. Two years ago it had no issue with the NXT takeover from London.

  • johntcole

    Part of this crowd is very committed to getting that “He’s got his own face on his arse” chant going, but I don’t think the rest are going to go for it.

  • I don’t get the psychology of attacking the missing ear. Unless it was cut off yesterday it probably doesn’t hurt there.

  • Devin Harris

    This NFL bandwagon fan skit on Fox was pretty funny.

    Jill (still with her): I assumed she would win cause she’s the most popular. Which team best suits me?

    • Macklin Man Without Password

      I liked that a lot. Well done Fox.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Good back-and-forth match. ***.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I kinda want to jump on eBay and hunt down old WWF magazines.

    • Adam Wright

      they’ll all be online in scanned form somewhere

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s not the same.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    Huh. I thought Drake would advance, but Conners is good, too.

  • ProjectBlue

    Lynch is up to the second tier announce team? Never minded Moose

  • Curtis Williams

    Just found out one of my good friends hasn’t been seen or heard from in almost 20 hours. To make matters worse, it’s b-day of another friend who died two years ago.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      That’s really harsh. I’m sorry!

  • Devin Harris

    The Falcons and Seahawks are both blah teams. At least you could watch Patriots games hoping to see Brady obliterate his knee or see how many ways Osweiler can be terrible.

    • RedStorm

      Brady throws a pick and get blind sided on the return. “Bad gets worse for Brady and the Pats.”

      • Devin Harris

        It’s just no fun rooting for or against Ryan or Russell.

        • RedStorm

          Well Russell is a personality-less shill. So it’s easy to root against him. He also made that awful graduation speech where he fabricated a bunch of stuff.

          • Devin Harris

            I guess he can be the heel today, but he’s just too boring to make the hatred last all game.

          • RedStorm

            He’s like the Spike Dudley of the playoff QBs. He’s little, he’s scrappy, he’s good not great, ho won’t lose the game for you, but he can’t win it on his own.

    • Curtis Williams

      Says a lot this is the best game of the day

      • Devin Harris

        but it’s on in the death slot for a reason. No one really wants to watch this

        • Curtis Williams

          As opposed to the Texans?!

          • Devin Harris

            Watching them suck is going to be perversely entertaining. Plus, the Pats are like Flair in the 80s. You’ll be cheering for Texas before you know it.

          • P.K.

            The Texans are America’s Team

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I don’t think the math checks out there, Lou.

    • ProjectBlue

      Usually try to latch onto a team once the Giants are done for the year but the remaining teams are pretty bla.

    • P.K.

      Osweiler is gonna prove all the haters wrong tonight

      • RedStorm

        24-21 Texans.

        • P.K.

          Agreed…O’Brien and Vrabel find a way to stop the Pats offense

          • RedStorm

            Well that sums up all Texans fans lol O’Brien*

          • P.K.

            I blame spell check

          • RedStorm

            I’ll allow it.

      • Devin Harris

        Yes

  • Adam Wright

    Theres no way they brought Andrews in for him to go out first round.

    • Be. Are. See.

      He’s my pick to win, so he better not lose in Round 1.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Andrews will bump around to make Moloney look good but I still think he wins.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    What does everyone think of the tournament so far?

    • Adam Wright

      Good show. Unique atmosphere and it’ll only get better with the longer matches in the later rounds.

      • Kelly Goosecock

        How long is the show?

        • Adam Wright

          2 hours today.

    • Better than WoS.

    • No six star matches yet.

    • PhilStubington

      Great looking venue. Good commentary. Three or four decent matches so far I’d say.

  • RedStorm

    This is how the national anthem should always be. No singing, sax or trumpet. Always sounds amazing.

  • Curtis Williams

    I get the NFL wanted to get the blah games out of the way first, but they could at put the Steelers on today to at least keep me somewhat interested

  • P.K.

    USA USA USA USA USA

  • They booked a 19 year old?

  • P.K.

    I got the Falcons going over in a squash

    • Devin Harris

      You may not be that far off. The Seahawks D is getting old and it’s definitely a step slower. They miss Earl Thomas

      • Falcons win but I don’t see it being lopsided. It’s not like the seahawks don’t have an offense.

        • Devin Harris

          It’s been smoke and mirrors this year. They’ve found ways to win but they aren’t that good anymore.

      • P.K.

        Yup…Earl is fucking great…If the Falcons are smart they’ll focus on exploiting his absence

  • Zach Sabre thinks this Andrews character missed too many meals.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    So I guess the plan is to have a champion in UK, Japan, Mexico, etc.

    • And a championship in Mars, Jupiter, Uranus etc so they can set up the first ever Universe championship!

      • Kelly Goosecock

        You’re lame.

    • Adam Wright

      They’re looking at doing a weekly UK show.

  • TomaxAndXamot

    Observation: the NFL has had only African American artists perform the National Anthem on national TV games since at least Thanksgiving.

  • Devin Harris

    This just in….sideline interviews are still a waste of time

  • Brian_Bayless

    Moloney is out of position a lot

  • This Andrews is better than the guys they have on 205 Live!

    • maskedcabana

      Wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up there sometime this year.

  • Devin Harris

    what’s Devon Lister doing in the Georgia Dome Zone?

  • Kelly Goosecock

    I remember reading about 10 years ago that Vince’s plan was to have a brand in every major international region. Funny how were finally starting to see that happening from his son in law.

    • PhilStubington

      I thought it was Shane’s grand plan.

      • Kelly Goosecock

        Maybe that’s who it was.

  • Be. Are. See.

    Andrews was fun, as always.

    • Brian_Bayless

      He was.

      Moloney was out of position for a lot of his stuff though.

  • ProjectBlue

    They’re making kickoffs boring enough that people won’t complain much when they finally get rid of them

    • RedStorm

      Penalty on EVERY SINGLE KICKOFF

    • The Professor

      They should do it the xfl way where 2 guys run to get the ball first

      • ProjectBlue

        That’d be fun. Probably just start ever drive other than punts on the 25 though because

  • RedStorm

    I hate Doug Baldwin. He has such a punchable face and hateable personality.

  • WWF1987

    How’s the UK show been?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Fun atmosphere but a bit underwhelming in the ring.

      • I think the first show is about character development rather than showing great matches. The matches tomorrow should be better.

      • Adam Wright

        You’re not going to break *** in 10 minute first round matches.

        • Brian_Bayless

          More about a few guys here had no business being in the tournament than anything else.

      • Be. Are. See.

        It should pick up in Round 2, hopefully.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        They need more time in the ring.

    • maskedcabana

      Solid but not spectacular.

    • PhilStubington

      Great looking venue. Good commentary. Four or five decent matches so far I’d say. But nothing over **1/2 or *** yet, partly due to the time constraints.

  • Devin Harris

    You can’t celebrate a hit if it comes after a 7 yard run

  • Kelly Goosecock

    God I hope NFL isn’t a thing anymore in 20 years.

    • RedStorm

      In 20 years the NFL will be less popular in the US and more popular around the world.

    • The Professor

      But they own a day of the week

    • P.K.

      Keep dreaming ‘Kelly’…lol

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I really hope so. It’s just too dangerous.

  • Adam Wright

    Take half the guys from here. Hopefully add Drew Galloway & Davey Boy Smith Jnr. You have a hell of a roster for the UK show plus they can bring in a load of local talent on short term deals.

    • PhilStubington

      Move Jack Gallagher over.

  • PhilStubington

    Andrews. Wolfgang. Trent Seven. Some decent potential for tomorrow.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I wish the WWE would unearth Craig DeGeorge when they do their little nostalgia episodes.

    • The Silver Fox

      Ken Resnick

  • Adam Wright

    Dudley/Wolverhampton is the dullest accent in the UK.

  • Holy shit the 19 year old looks like in his mid 40s.

  • PhilStubington

    Shout out for Mark Dallas. ICW represent.

    • looked amazingly sober too. Minor miracle there 😀

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    God dammit..It’s a Moondog. Wait….He’s taking on Snake Roberts. I’ll allow this.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    I enjoyed the U.K. show way more than I thought I would. Thanks for talking me into it, guys!

    • PhilStubington

      Tomorrow should be better. The matches will run longer and the better talent will be wrestling.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I was afraid they’d calm them down too much and the mismatches would be as bad as the CWC.

  • I do not like the phrase “passes defensed”.

    • RedStorm

      Passes defended. Works so much better.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    NFL ratings have been in the absolute toilet this year.

    • The Professor

      Except for cowboys games

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        35m for the Turkey Day game, goddamn

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Shit play + CTE awareness + endless ads + Trump’s America hating those colored folks kneeling

      • Curtis Williams

        I’m admitted more interested in what the Super Bowl rating is going to look like for these reasons

      • The Professor

        If pats make it to the super bowl, I bet there will be a lot of stuff about how Brady and belicheck support trump

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Oh you bet. And Tom Brady will duck it all like hes in the pocket. Its pretty hilarious that hes pro-Trump and his wife is very much not

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    20 minutes until the wings are done. AWWW YEAH

  • The Professor

    So what does the winner of the U.K. Tourney get?

    • Adam Wright

      a title belt & a job.

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        And a hat.

    • PhilStubington

      The belt is by the top of the ramp. Looks good.

  • PhilStubington

    Are there any Irish wrestlers NOT trained by Finn??

    • Adam Wright

      Fit Finlay.

      • PhilStubington

        I meant of the up and coming generation. My bad.

        • Adam Wright

          I know what you meant. I was being facetious

    • The Professor

      Hornswoggle?

    • maskedcabana

      Hornswoggle.

    • MillstreamPigworker

      Tag team called the Gaelics. Michael Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzmichael.

  • Devin Harris

    Falcons defense been pretty shitty so far

    • RedStorm

      Can’t stop the run for shit.

      • Devin Harris

        Not sure why the Seahawks bothered with that WR screen. Just go right at them.

        • RedStorm

          Just run it every play.

  • You know how he….

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Get in those international tourneys now before Der Fuhrer calls in to his friend Vinnie Mac and threatens him YUGE taxes unless he brings those tournaments back to MURICA

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Oh noes! It’s the last Piper’s Pit ever. At least according to 1987 Roddy Piper.

    • The Rabid One

      1987 Piper had yet to meet 1990s Vince and 2K Vince

  • Kelly Goosecock

    Is the champion crowned tomorrow?

    • PhilStubington

      Quarters, Semis and final tomorrow I think.

  • johntcole

    Tyler Bate has some damn massive thighs

    • WWF1987

      So he’s winning the title then?

      • johntcole

        Well I like him so I hope so!

        • Clark O’Brien

          I’d like to see him win it. Out of everyone here he’s got the most promise, coupled with some damn fine skills at a very young age.

  • Sadly, Youtube does not have a supercut of Bomani Jones shitting on the Falcons.

  • Hayden

    I’m liking these two guys so far.

  • These British wrestlers don’t know how to play the game. I’d be telling Michael Cole that I first got into wrestling when I saw HHH drive his tank to WCW HQ! I’d be an instant UK champion for the next 3 years!

  • johntcole

    Tucker is busting his ass here

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Surgical drive there

  • PhilStubington

    Some nice selling there.

  • Devin Harris

    This entire drive was just too easy.

    • Jimmy Graham returns to haunt Atlanta.

      • Devin Harris

        The entire offense haunted Atlanta.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    #22 got frozen like Disney

  • RedStorm

    Captain CTE John Lynch.

    • He’s no Jason Sehorn, that’s for sure.

  • Adam Wright

    This is everything the World of Sport special wasn’t.

    • PhilStubington

      That’s the difference between the Progress style and All Star.

      • I once took my friend to All Star. I kept apologizing to him all night.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I’ve never heard of All-Star, but it sounds awful.

          • PhilStubington

            They mainly do shows at holiday camps. They are designed for a walk in audience with lots of kids and people who are non-fans.

          • Aaron

            There’s a place for that style when done right.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Progress is awesome!

    • maskedcabana

      I don’t know, this show needs some multiple Grado matches.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    So if they do a weekly show taped in the UK, will it be a separate TV crew or are they going to force the one TV crew to do everything?

    • Adam Wright

      It’d have to be a separate tv crew. NXT use a different crew to Raw who use a separate crew to Smackdown.

    • Aaron

      It would almost have to be considered visas and whatnot.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Mary Hart was kinda 80’s hot in a way…kinda.

  • itwastyped

    That was a terrible bump off the top rope, I think he was meant to roll

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    Always with the fucking Nirvana during Seahawks games. We get it

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      They could at least play some Mudhoney.

      • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

        !!!

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          *hides in a heating duct*

  • johntcole
  • Kelly Goosecock

    Wow I thought it was one production crew that does all 3 brands.

    • PhilStubington

      Part of the deal with Full Sail is a tie-in with some courses they run on TV production and filming. So the NXT TV crew are also developmental.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    More ads! Keep those millennials glued!

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    Fuck this coverage. So many commercials

    • Kelly Goosecock

      Probably the reason why most people don’t have cable anymore?

  • johntcole

    Bate literally looks like a tall midget.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I wish I had a Junkyard Dog shirt.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Nice! “Equilibrium” on Encore as NFL ad break entertainment

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    When it’s not my team playing, a lot of these NFL games are as much of a struggle as modern WWE to get through. So many ads and horrible announcing

    • The Professor

      That’s why I usually do some grading during the games

  • maskedcabana

    That was definitely the best match of the night.

  • Be. Are. See.

    That was a fun two hours of professional wrestling.

  • Michael Cole was marking out, bro!

  • johntcole

    Good show, nothing spectacular but it did its job.

    • It’s a show what it should have been. A show to introduce characters and get their moves over.

  • Adam Wright

    Great wrestling show. Good in-ring action. Great commentary and unique crowd/atmosphere. I expect great things tomorrow.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    What a first round!!!

  • PhilStubington

    That was *** I think.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    I hope Atlanta can knock off Seattle. I’m good on Seahawks playoff appearances for a while

  • MillstreamPigworker

    The 19 year old made Michael Cole come on his seat!

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Lol not a great execution on that pass

  • johntcole

    Guy in front row does not like Tyler Bate

  • The Professor

    Best British wrestler ever: William regal

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Dynamite Kid.

    • The Silver Fox

      Adrian Street

    • PhilStubington

      Not even close. Mick McManus, Rollerball Rocco.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Good final match. Bate is impressive.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    So the winner will have to wrestle 3 matches tomorrow?

    • The Professor

      Unless there’s a bye

    • PhilStubington

      Unless they do an injury angle or something and give someone a bye.

  • Adam Wright

    Nigel McGuiness heading to the ring for a presentation: Regal’s HOF announcement?

    • PhilStubington

      My assumption.

    • Cbenson5

      What did it turn out to be?

  • Brian_Bayless

    Thought Andrews came off as the biggest star here.

    • Adam Wright

      Easily the best known guy in the tournament.

    • Aaron

      Burch helped himself a lot.

      • Brian_Bayless

        The guy he wrestled was not good at all.

        • Clark O’Brien

          Poor Big-Head Balor.

      • Clark O’Brien

        There was a point he was the go to guy for a UK indy heavyweight champion.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      He was completely wasted in TNA. Big surprise.

    • Clark O’Brien

      He definitely is. With ZSJ and Osprey being unavailable he’s the biggest name they could get.

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        Don’t forget Scurll for that unavailable list.

  • PhilStubington

    They’ve booked themselves a good mix of styles tomorrow.

  • WWE makes history every day!

  • RedStorm

    Grayson Allen locked in an armbar Chris Jericho would be proud of and then tried to sell that he the one getting fouled. Punk. Ass.

    • TomaxAndXamot

      One of his trips last year was against Louisville, too. Wish someone would send in the goon like the good ol’ days.

      • RedStorm

        Where’s John Chaney when you need him. The kid for Louisville gave him a nice little slap too.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Austin Hooper, from STANFORD

    Pac-12!

    • Kelly Goosecock

      Football is gay.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        PK?

        • P.K.

          Nah, I’m a real man and I love football…Don’t know what kind queèr calls himself Kelly, hates football, but seems to love goose cock. .

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Just got in and will check out the UK show on replay.

    Good show?

    • Stranger In the Alps

      I meant “good”obviously.

      • PhilStubington

        Don’t expect anything better than *** due to the match length limits. But the venue looks great, the commentary was excellent and it whizzed along nicely.

        • Stranger In the Alps

          As far as UK stars go, was this good representation?

          • more representative of the UK scene than WOS, for sure. Way better show. Still tons of guys missing that work in the UK. Add The Coffeys, Rampage, Joe Hendry, Mastiff, Moss, Kenny Williams, Ligero to that tourney with the guys that are in the quarter finals and that’s a cracking world class tourney.

            I’d have put Burch through ahead of Devlin too, being honest

    • Adam Wright

      Yes. Definitely worth a look.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    It’s weird seeing ads for Wrestlemania III and they show you all the different cable companies that have ppv capabilities and it’s weird seeing like, four different cable companies and not just a conglomerate.

  • Be. Are. See.

    Bwahhahahha, Pete Dunne is awesome. And so is Regal.

  • Pete Dunne is a loose cannon! Someone take away his badge and gun!

  • RedStorm

    “Prior to the pass, HOLDING on the entire Seattle secondary”

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    For all the griping we do, they seem to be doing some good with SD, NXT, the CWC, and the UK thing now. Now if they could only fix the flagship show…

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Anything Vince has little and less to do with.

  • Adam Wright

    Great ending to the show.
    “Don’t mess this up”

  • Be. Are. See.

    To follow up a fun professional wrestling show…Holy Foley! *turns off Network*

    • Adam Wright

      Follow it with something appropriate the British themed Table for Three, for example.

      • PhilStubington

        Yeah a Regal / Fit / Dave Taylor Table for Three would be ace.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    That was a shoot by Dunne guys.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    Noelle Foley is not attractive.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      This gimmick is bad and you should feel bad

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        It’s is a dumb gimmick but her face is kinda long.

        • RedStorm

          What face?

    • RedStorm

      You want the NFL to die and don’t think Noelle is attractive? Have you even looked at her from the neck down?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        BIG AMERICAN TITTIES COUSIN

      • Stranger In the Alps

        In his defense, I dislike the NFL also and would not miss it if it died.

  • Brian_Bayless

    I took notes but unsure if I will write a review of that.

  • *Vince McMahon watches the show*

    “Why aren’t the Indian wrestlers evil terrorists, PAL?!”

  • Brian_Bayless

    Did Noelle already give up on her wrestling dream?

    • Orton must have shit in her bag 🙁

      • Clark O’Brien

        That’s just him flirting.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    A football quarter played in under a half hour? In the playoffs? What sorcery is this ?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Get ready for a 1.5 hour 4th

  • P.K.

    TD FALCONS!

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Fun game to start, both offenses wheelin and dealin

  • The Silver Fox
    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Holy smokes!

    • maskedcabana

      We had the old manual dial cable box.

      • The Silver Fox

        That was the second one we had.

    • IT’S EVEN GOT “OLD” IN THE TITLE!

  • Clark O’Brien

    Its quite nice to hear Cole sound like he genuinely enjoyed himself.

    • He did a good job getting guys and matches over.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    And now for a bit of history as we witness Bruno Sammartino’s final WWF appearance.

  • Aaron

    “Exercisin’ is fer cucks. Buy a truck!”

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    I love how superheroes are a very American thing, yet movie Spiderman? Two Brits in a row. DCU Superman? British. Previous Batman? Welsh. Wonder Woman? Israeli

    • Trump will change that!

    • PhilStubington

      Dr Strange.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Magic of globalisation.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    In his defense, lol. Stranger in the Alps

    • Stranger In the Alps

      Yeah, but just this one time.

      • Kelly Goosecock

        Her defense.

        • Stranger In the Alps

          Mmmmkay.

  • See, Seattle, it IS possible to properly execute a slant at the goal line!

  • P.K.

    I can’t wait to watch Toby Keith’s amazing Inauguration Day performance…

    • Aaron

      Just imagine if he and Nugent do a duet of Wang Dang Sweet Pootang! Oh man that’d be so awesome.

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    “Those close to Fish have remarked that he has studied the winning game plan his partner employed to capture the gold in the Big Apple at Final Battle. And those close to Fish believe Champion Adam Cole is worn down from his international schedule and recent grueling battles, dually driven by his desire to be World Champion and to avenge his partner’s loss, creating the perfect opportunity for Fish.”

    Really going out of your way not to say Kyle O’Reilly aren’t you ROH

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Has he been Benoit’ed?

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        I don’t know, it’s justhe very odd not to include his name in the article unless that’s the case.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      It’s so clear he won Survival of the fittest just to do the reDRagon vs reDRagon match. If they weren’t committed to giving Bobby a shot from that match result I can’t imagine he’d Even be in the main event without Kyle around

  • RedStorm

    All that running and he’s only 10 yards further than if he took a knee.

  • What a well-written Superman in this week’s Titans!

          Though he has stated that had there not been blood relations betwixt the two he would rip and tear her up.

          • P.K.

  • Kelly Goosecock

    I thought that was Mick’s daughters?? That’s his sons? I honestly can’t tell.

    • He has three sons, one daughter, doesn’t he?

      • Kelly Goosecock

        Holy shit. If they are girls God love them.

      • Yes. Dewey, Michael, and Hughie are all boys.

        • Michael really should’ve been Louie. Foley fail.

          • Wonder if Collette overrode him on that one.

          • THAT’s a conversation on Holy Foley that would have gotten me to watch, as Foley breaks out into the Duck Tales theme.

      • RedStorm

        Correct

  • ProjectBlue

    Huh, Thrones hasn’t been officially renewed for season 8 because Benioff and Weiss are still contemplating how many episodes to make. Hopefully they back off 6 episodes

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Wasn’t this supposed to be the final season?

      • maskedcabana

        It’s split over 2 years, 7 episodes each.

        • It seems like they need two separate season for the final two story arcs: one when someone finally claims the throne, and one where the whitewalkers are finally defeated.

      Up until 1990,my country (India ) had just one tv channel.

    • Jay Thomas

      I only left the house to go to work for a couple weeks when cable first hit my area in 1989. Channels 2-99 were pretty much filled but there were some of out of state channels the FCC wouldn’t allow today. Channel 38 out of Boston was included. A PBS station out of Pennsylvania showed old sitcoms commercial free.

    Okay, their defense was pretty good there.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      They can send Russ over to Cleveland. NO PROBLEM.

  • P.K.

      There’s no better play in football.

  • So… There a football game on or something?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Yessir Big Hoss Man

      • Just checked the score. Close game.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    Good Christ! The Hogan/Andre feud lasted FIVE matches!?

    • The Silver Fox

      That include the matches from 1980?

        Main Event
        WM4
        SS 88
        WrestleFest 88

        I think that’s the six match feud.

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Jesus! I forgot about Summerslam

          • Ha! I figured you forgot about WrestleFest. I almost listed everything but the Main Event match. That would’ve been embarrassing.

          • Mr. Money On The Table

            I remember WrestleFest because it was a cage match and I used to rent the video a lot. Don’t remember the card at all minus that match.

    • Brian_Bayless

  • Brian_Bayless

    For a $1, McCafe coffee is totally worth it

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Give me $1 McGriddles and Ill be all over that

      (im FAT!)

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    3 people with one tiny Wal-Mart pizza? That would barely feed me (Im FAT)

    • Brian_Bayless

      If I have friends over, we are ordering delivery

    • The Silver Fox

      I’m not overweight and that would barely feed me.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I love those anti-delivery DiGiorno ads where a party of four is all jazzed about the $5 oven pizza that will ensure a maximum of one slice per person. PARTYYYYYYYY

        • ARRRRGH THE BARBARIAN

          Also the delivery moron’s brother is probably working at the pizza factory and putting pubes in every 4th pizza

  • Thebraziliankid

    Biggest douche: Belichick or Carroll?

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Carroll. 9/11 truthers can get fucked.

  • It’s a bit cold today.

    • P.K.

      80 degrees here..lol

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I thought it was always cold there.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Nice throw and catch

  • Aaron

    The Falcons are matriculating down the field.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    How is Seattle making Matt Ryan look good? That’s impossible to do!

    • Aaron

      Except that he’s pretty good.

      • Cbenson5

        Yes Ryan is good.

    • Dwayne

      Have you seen him play before?

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Yes. Lots. He’s awful once he gets any kind of pressure.

    • Brian_Bayless

      He’s been excellent this year.

    • Mikey

      He’s damn good.

  • Brian_Bayless

    Seattle shit the bed that drive

    • Kenny_Reigns

      They really did. Just pass rush Ryan and he’ll make tons of mistakes.

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    I just realized that The Kid never turned on the open sign. He’s learning.

    • Waltman?

      • Mr. Money On The Table

        Um….Yeah. He’s hit another rough patch. I am trying not to ask him about Chyna.

        • Try to avoid talking about torn assholes.

          • Starscreamlive

            I wonder how bad that hurt, and did he ever do another Bronco Buster after that incident?

  • Mikey

    Season Six of Gilmore Girls. Rory Gilmore is the worst

    • Seriously.

      • Mikey

        I’m having trouble with this season. the show sucks right now. I forgot how awful this show gets

        • The last two seasons are very frustrating, because the characters just get worse and worse and make terrible decisions just for the sake of drama that could have easily been avoided.

          There are very few bright spots in the last two seasons.

          • Mikey

            Is “A Year in the Life” any better?

          • A complete reversal from the crap that was the last two seasons. I think the second episode was a bit weak, but overall, I think it was a fantastic way to cap the show off. And I PRAY TO THE TV GODS that they don’t do any more.

          • Mikey

            It got a ton of viewers. I bet they do more lol

          • They ended the Netflix version the way the show creators wanted to end the series originally. Netflix may want more, but I’m willing to bet the cast and crew are content to let it lie as it is.

          • Also, you can read all about it at The Geekery!

          • Brian_Bayless

            Much.

          • Brian_Bayless

            The last two seasons were really bad.

            The Lorelai/Luke stuff got too convoluted and Rory’s “Journalism” career was laughable.

          • Rory as an aspiring “journalist” was SOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying. She was seriously the worst aspiring journalist I’d ever seen, and I was happy to see how badly she always performed at it.

            Seriously, Rory is the worst character on the show.

            And yeah, Lorelai and Luke’s whole arc in seasons 6-7 almost made me drop the show entirely.

          • Brian_Bayless

            The actress who plays her is also very weak at acting.

            Its the same limited range of emotion for each situation.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Shes annoying but if she ever wants to keep her complexion, I’ll help her with the whiteface

  • Starscreamlive

    Who’s Kelly Goose cock?

    • Adam Wright

      bad gimmick poster.

    • P.K.

      A geeky queèr…..lol
