  • Mikey

    YES! New Arrow tonight.

    • Dwayne

      I like Arrow

      • Mikey

        It’s a good show. Not many are fans of it here within the DCCW universe.

        • Dwayne

          Flash is good too. I tried Supergirl but it’s not as good as those 2.

          • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

            I find flash to be the least of the three, though I’ve just started with Flash this season, which seems like a bad one.

        • “No Way Jose” Gomez

          I was under the impression a lot of people here like the show

          • Matt_Indeed.

            Most do. Another thing that is generally done around here is hyperbole.

          • Dwayne

            I know. I’m tired of everyone around here doing that.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            TGGI, and so does EVERYONE ELSE EVER.

  • Matt_Indeed.

    Why not just have Emma do her cooking show on the WWE network and have her wrestle someone in her kitchen every week in barely any clothing?
    Geez, think outside the box, WWE.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Hot bacon grease is no fun when you’re scantily clad.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        She can walk it off.

  • mike

    Brock Lesnar officially notified the UFC of his retirement from MMA.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Well, if they’re gonna make him take piss tests, forget that!

      • mike

        From what i read he was about halfway through his compliance with his suspension. If he unretires he has to serve out the rest, with the testing that comes with it.

        Wondering if he retired so he could juice up for WM.

  • “Sources tell us Emmalina was intended to be a throwback to characters like Sable and The Kat — however, delays were caused after officials felt like she wasn’t committing enough to the role and ultimately they decided to just let Emma be evil again.”

    Imagine someone not being committed to a character that was blown off, postponed, and treated like a joke for the better part of 4 months. I mean, the nerve, right?

  • TatR!

    “Sources tell us Emmalina was intended to be a throwback to characters like Sable and The Kat”

    I don’t know what this means. I don’t remember what these peoples characters actually were beyond a bit of tits-outtery

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Emmalina was going to get in catfights where her boobs would nearly pop out, and she would shoot t-shirts from a gun. The end.

    • Night

      If she was to be a throwback like that, uh, wouldn’t it be better if she was a valet to someone?

    • mike

      Thats basically what the divas were.

    • The irony of course is that they already had someone playing this “character” in Eva Marie, but they tried pushing her as a legitimate wrestler while they had a legitimate wrestler pretending to be useless eye candy. “Millionaire who should be a billionaire.”

    • Diddly

      So Emma was going to go topless on a Network Special?!?!? :((((((

  • johntcole

    This theory proposed for SDL sounds about right

    “Styles wins the Battle Royal

    Randy reveals his true colors and turns on Bray down the road, re-establishing their match

    Shane decides to reinstate the match, dropping Styles from the picture which makes him furious and advances their feud.”

    Still hope Luke Harper somehow finds his way into the title match. His inclusion would make it a lot more exciting and I know the SDL writing team believes that as well.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      My theory is that Harper wins, and Orton ends up in the match to “protect” Bray from Harper. Or something.

      • johntcole

        They’ve got to build to Styles vs Shane somehow though

        • tannerfamilyfun92

          They just have to do some bullshit about secret agreements and lockboxes or whatever. It worked last year

        • Bervda

          AJ doesn’t get his one on one rematch. That’s reason enough.

    • DAJackson7

      That sounds about right and it does the stupid Shane match no one wants by setting it up and having AJ look good and not like a goof

      • johntcole

        Well it’s at least a guaranteed Mania win for Styles

        • DAJackson7

          Time to test the theory he can get a good match out of anyone. I can’t even believe JBL said that last night

        • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

          Haha, so you think.

    • zahidf

      That’s a bit too much of a heel move by Shane. AJ won it fair and square and should at least me In as a three way match?
      I assume its because Shane won’t give him a one on one title rematch.

  • Facts

    AMC Theaters To Allow Nixing Of The Emmalina Character During Movies In Effort To Appeal To Vince McMahon.

    • Diddly

      Jeff Fisher looks like the kind of guy who would hate the Emmalina character and nix it after the rehearsals failed to impress

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    I’ve always been puzzled by this song. If you were American,would your last words be in French?

  • Night

    I like Bray Wyatt as champ.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      THIS GUY HAS BEEN BRAINWASHED, EVERYONE!

    • Dwayne

      He’s more legit to me than Owens

      • Night

        If it was the Owens who faced up to Cena when he came in, I would be cool with him. But they seriously neutered him.

        • Dwayne

          I will say they are getting back on track with what Owens should be now that the friendship angle is over.

          • Night

            I hope so. But the odds aren’t strong that he looks good against Goldberg. I expect Goldberg to run right through him.

          • Bruce Chung

            And Goldberg should. Not just because of the part-timer thing. Goldberg has almost always been booked as a monster. Owens just isn’t on that level.

          • JimbobJones

            If they hadn’t been booking him like a doof since he won the belt, he could have been.

            He wouldn’t have been tough enough to beat Goldberg head-on, but I’ve always seen Steen/early Owens as a “Jake the Snake” type of “sneaky/smart” wrestler that would have been able to hold his own against a Goldberg (just through more backhanded means)

  • cultstatus

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C4tb98WVMAYdzGg.jpg

    Vomit. Although I kinda get the impression Shane’s kids are going to grow up and endlessly annoy the shit out of Uncle Triple H.

    • Diddly

      How many people in that photo have taken a Stone Cold Stunner?

    • Night

      So many future world champions in that pic.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      We are doomed.

    • Facts

      None of Triple H’s kids have big noses.

      • Night

        Don’t worry. They’ll grow them out.

    • The Polish Hammer

      HHH blinked. Jesus Christ, he can’t even sell for a photo.

  • johntcole

    If this HHH thing with Joe and Owens turns out to be true then we’re for sure getting our official Shield reunion this year after the draft.

    • cultstatus

      The main event of Mania this year should be HHH/Joe/KO vs Shield.

      • johntcole

        Probably next year.

      • Brian_Bayless

        SummerSlam

        • johntcole

          Nah, Shield officially reunites at Survivor Series as the 5 year anniversary of their debut.

    • Night

      HHH/Joe/Owens vs. The Shield?

      I like it.

    • Wild Wing

      Finn/Joe/Owens vs Shield

      • johntcole

        They’re not turning Finn yet

        • Wild Wing

          Having the guy most synonymous with NXT not be part of the NXT stable of Paul Levesque guys seems like a glaringly loose end.

          • Night

            Finn could be the guy who’s unsure of the alliance. Start out with them and then turn babyface because he’s a good guy.

          • johntcole

            He just doesn’t want to be part of it?

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    “Emmalina Character Nixed After Rehearsals Failed to Impress Backstage Officials”

    Fake newz.

    • Brian_Bayless

      I mean they literally killed off the character on-air Monday night in its debut.

      • Why wouldn’t they determine if Emma could play the character first BEFORE you film and run 17 weeks worth of vignettes?

        • Brian_Bayless

          The company is run by a lunatic who changes his mind by the minute. If he hates something he’ll kill it off instantly.

          • chicagodem79

            I honestly wonder if it was “that” bad lol, it doesn’t seem like it’s a particularly difficult character to play.

          • “What is that fucking accent she’s doing?!”
            “She’s Australian, Vince.”
            “Well why didn’t any of you motherfuckers tell me that?! Get her away from me! Get me the fuck out of here!”
            (Vince storms off)
            Emma: What happens now?
            Ryan Ward: We’ll just have you go back to what you were doing before. There was really never a reason to change it to begin with.
            Emma: Well, that makes sense.

          • PATRICKisLEGEND

            Get her back with Dana Brooke.

          • Brian_Bayless

            Vince hates accents.

          • Including himself.

            kinda.

        • PATRICKisLEGEND

          I mean, if after 17 weeks, that’s the kind of promo she can cut…

          • chicagodem79

            Eh, it’s not like Sable cut amazing promos at any point of her WWF career lol.

          • PATRICKisLEGEND

            Sable was getting the second biggest pops in the company.

          • chicagodem79

            Oh no doubt, and we all know why she got some of the biggest pops in the company at the time….lol.

          • Dwayne

            Which shows that despite the “revolution” whats really over with wrestling fans is hot chicks.

          • DAJackson7

            No, some people like Sasha

          • Dwayne

            She’ll never get as over as Sable was.

          • Right? Mrs. Hoss happened to be watching with me, and said something along these lines:

            “Oh, that’s horrible. I could do better.”

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        I’m sure she’ll cover it in her 2018 shoot.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Very conflicted as to which Champions League match to watch tonight.

  • cultstatus

    Someone should photoshop all the kayfab Russians from the 80s in that Trump/McMahon pic.

    • DAJackson7

      YAAAAEEEESSSSSSSS. Volkoff, Zuchov, Koloff……

  • Mikey

    What an EVIL day!

  • Facts

    Happy Discounted Valentine’s Day Candy everyone!

  • TatR!

    Coherent Booking Nixed After Rehearsals Failed to Impress Backstage Officials

    and so on, many things can be nixed, a recurring statement ala AMC Theaters

  • cultstatus

    It needs to be revealed that Lana has secretly been influencing the Authority all these years.

    • cultstatus

      Then you do Rusev vs HHH at Mania.

  • The Polish Hammer

    Possible new gimmicks for Emma:
    The Emmataker

      So can I watch a movie at AMC or not?

      • Facts

        Yes in undisturbed theater #7.

        • Matt_Indeed.

          Score.

  • mike

    Wonder how much longer until WWE jumps on the reboot bandwagon of hollywood and just straight up has rebooted Hulk, Randy, Andre, etc.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    What’s your favorite music video? the quality of the song doesn’t matter.

    • DAJackson7

      That one by The Darkness were they went straight up 80’s with the Grand Canyon and everything

      • I Believe in a Thing Called Love?

        • DAJackson7

          I think the video i”m thinking of was More Than A Feeling, but i was drunk in a hostel in Munich when i saw it

    • TatR!

      Julian Lennon’s Saltwater maybe, with cheese and sadness

    • Wild Wing

      Everlong

    • Napoleon Blownapart

    • Night

      I always liked 2pac’s Do For Love because I loved the animation.

    • Facts

    • chicagodem79

      Music video? That’s SO 1988 lol.

    • DAJackson7

      Epic by Faith No More always wins in a serious vote

    • Estate – Write to Make (Gigamesh Remix)
      You’ve never heard of it, but it’s pretty sick and definitely worth checking out.

        Yeah that’s great, can’t argue with that

        • Matt_Indeed.

          1 – I love Beauty and the Beast
          2- If you’re going to spend money on a music video, go all out with the theatrics.
          3 – The song is perfect for a music video.

          • TatR!

            I remember his Objects In The Rear View Mirror from that album being really good too. Vague memories though.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            That whole album is just a decadent masterpiece to me. So over the top, but so good.

          • TatR!

            Yeah it’s so good. Life Is A Lemon was always my favourite track after the title track

          • TatR!

            It’s a never ending attack
            Everything’s a lie, and that’s a fact
            Life is a lemon and I want my money back!

        Nice. I somehow knew you would come up with a good one.

        • The Silver Fox

          Some of Peter Gabriel’s videos would be up there as well.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            Absolutely

          • The Silver Fox

            Shock the Monkey, Big Time, Sledgehammer and Steam are all top 40 videos for me.

  • WWE Creative discussion about Emmalina:

    Writer: Man, this character just isn’t working.

    VKM: Right? This bitch just ain’t making it work.

    Writer: uh…that’s not exactly what I said.

    VKM: What do we do about it, pal?

    Writer: Well, we could let her go back to her old gimmick or come up with something new. Maybe let her work something out herself?

    VKM: Great idea pal! We’ll figure something else out, and in the meantime, we’ll send her out on live TV to say the gimmick isn’t working and make her look like an idiot!

    Writer: . . .

  • The extra shot at the end is something Jack Bauer would do http://i.imgur.com/LsR7tsj.gif

    • Haven’t watched the most recent episode yet. Probably will tonight.

      • Black Bauer no sells a hit and run!

        • Black Bauer.

          Goddammit.

          First, I laughed. Then I thought, “oh, no. No no no.”

  • Andrew Champagne

    Where do people who schedule meetings from 5-6 p.m. rank in terms of “circle of hell” potential? Discuss.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Depends on if they pull that shit on Fridays.

    • TatR!

      Damn, that is hell

    • Kill them. Kill them all.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Whoever scheduled it should be shunned for eternity.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      My last job would do 7-8 PM meetings. At AT&T, everyone is expected to be available 24/7, so sometimes meetings would take place 3-4 AM.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        this is pretty much the case at my company as well..

        • Andrew Champagne

          That sometimes happens here because we’ve got branches in Europe. That sometimes means our developers and their teams have to meet people at 6 a.m.

    • chicagodem79

      Well, if it’s a senior person on executive, there ain’t nothing you can do about it lol, if it’s just a middle management jobber, then that’s another story lol.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      All of our partner meetings are 5-6, it’s the time where most everyone is free. Plus, we buy them food.

    • Mrh610

      I have a few west coast clients who try to pull that BS. I used to accommodate them when I was new, but now I either decline the meeting invite or no-sell the invite altogether.

  • Bruce Chung

    So Shane has 4 kids and Steph has 2?

    • HartKiller_09

      I think she has 3.

    • They each have 3

      • Bruce Chung

        I bet Triple H Pedigreed Shane’s kids just to establish dominance.

  • cultstatus

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C4thSS3WEAEpoYQ.jpg

    This pic is even better. Shane’s kid ain’t buying this bullshit.

  • DAJackson7

    Not a good music video, but the Shania Twain one were her nipples were all poking out sure me me a happy guy in my teens

    • TatR!

      Oh that reminds me. The best video of all time is obviously Stay by Lisa Loeb.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        How does that remind you of Stay? lol

        • TatR!

          he was being pervy and lisa loeb is <3

    • Well, in terms of hot chicks, I fucking hated Duran Duran, but the adult version of “Girls on Film” is nice. I believe it includes a girl icing a nipple.

    • …..which video?

      • DAJackson7

        I think it’s Any Man of Mine

  • maskedcabana

    So funny to see Bryan turn into a total prick when Bliss messed up and thought the Patriots lost.

  • I hate “mandatory” company social functions. I spend 1/3 of my weekdays with you people. That’s more than enough. Fuck off.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      Mandatory generally means they pay you to be there.

      • Yes. But I’m not actually working.

        Thankfully, my current company doesn’t do this. They have a company meeting once a year, but it’s during a lunch hour, and they bring in pizza. THey have a holiday party, but it’s not mandatory.

    • chicagodem79

      Where’s FriendshipIsBest when you need him? lol

    • Dwayne

      I don’t have mandatory ones but I don’t mind attending a few. I don’t see my co-workers all the time and usually the bosses pay for everything.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      I missed my work Christmas party because my wife had a gig booked the same night. I didn’t mind it because my co-workers often act like children after 2 drinks.

      I’m friendly with the people I work with, but I don’t make friends with them. Some people find that odd about me.

      • Dwayne

        I work in IT, so there aren’t that many people on my team that I would actually hang out with outside of work. Quite a few of them are weird or awkward.

        • DAJackson7

          Same

        • tannerfamilyfun92

          The people I work with aren’t necessarily weird, but I try to maintain a work/life balance. Then again, I work mostly with women so they spend the first 20 or so minutes of their days bitching about their husbands and/or kids

          • Dwayne

            That’s another thing I don’t care for. We are going out after work so I rather not think or talk about work since i’m off. But some people want to still bitch about work the whole time. Or their personal issues.

          • Devin Harris

            This! This! And more this!

          • JimbobJones

            I work in Silicon Valley. After work, people end up talking about work, or stock, or companies… I’m like “don’t you people have hobbies?!”

        • Kenny_Reigns

          IT co-workers are the worst!

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        I have the task of coordinating these things for the office. We did a brewery tour in the summer, and I set up an empty floor in our building for trivia night with Geeks Who Drink around the holidays.

      • Makes sense.

  • Ioan Morris

    Got confirmation that I’m tabling at ELCAF and Thought Bubble comic cons later this year. Woo!

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    i watched the PSG-Barca replay. By far the worst display from Barcelona I’ve seen in a decade.

    • TatR!

      Angel Di Maria’s happy face fills me with unpleasantly bitter feelings

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Ehh,he had his one performance that justifies his contract. Now he’ll be lazy and selfish as usual.

    • itwastyped

      Gives me a glimmer of hope for Arsenal tonight… gulp

    • zahidf

      Barca will be looking for a new manager, since they seem unlikely to win La Liga…

  • The Silver Fox

    Guilty pleasure videos from the 80’s:
    The Warrior by Scandal
    Strut and The Lover in Me by Sheena Easton
    Open Your Heart by Madonna

    • DAJackson7

      I liked early Madonna, but everything after like 88 sucks to me

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        It’s pretty sad that even harcore Madonna fans are hard-pressed to name three decent songs she’s released since the mid-90s.

        I guess you could say that about most “classic” artists though

        • I can name 3 since the mid-90’s:

          Frozen
          The Power of Goodbye
          Don’t Tell Me.

          Now after 2000 is where things get dicey…though Hung up and Jump aren’t bad

        • Dwayne

          Bedtime Stories was a good album. It came out in 94 I think? The last time I liked her work.

      • The Silver Fox

        Vogue is really the last Madonna song I like.

    • Dwayne

      80s Madonna was cool

    • Heidenreich

      The warrior is terrific and the video is absurd

    • Andrew Champagne
  • Ioan Morris

    Listened to the recent Jericho/Owens podcast this morning. Very good.

    • Was this recorded before or after the Festival of Friendship?

      • ProjectBlue

        Unless it was the last day or so, was recorded before survivor series live

      • Ioan Morris

        Afternoon of Survivor Series

  • Wild Wing

    I’m pretty excited for Yoshi Tatsu in CMLL.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      I think that’s the first time anyone said they were excited for Yoshi Tatsu in his entire career. Of course it came from Duck.

      • Wild Wing

        The Ongoing Ritual Humiliation of Yoshi Tatsu has been exciting for all.

  • Matt_Indeed.

    TatR made me laugh out loud at work.
    When you think about it, the British are just the worst.

    • TatR!

      I would have thought this kind of thing happens often

  • mike

    Favorite video: Talking Heads “Burning Down the House”

  • The Silver Fox

    Another guilty pleasure video:
    Flashdance…What a Feeling by Irene Cara

  • Devin Harris

    I’m having to eat out this whole week for lunch because of time constraints. It’s always a battle between cheap garbage and expensive stuff that won’t put me down for the rest of the day

    • Andrew Champagne

      I know the feeling. The plaza across the street from work changed ownership and closed down a number of quality lunch options (Subway, a pizza place, Johnny Rockets, and a Mexican place all closed). There are still SOME options, but the place is pretty depressing now.

    • Dwayne

      I hear ya. I never bring lunch from home though. I either get something from outside. or don’t eat at all.

      • Devin Harris

        I usually bring it but just didn’t have time this week.

        • Andrew Champagne

          I’m the same way. I’ll allot myself one or two paid lunches a week that allow me to sleep five extra minutes each day. Usually, one of them is on Saturday since I work 7-5 those days.

          • Devin Harris

            I’m up early to workout so sleep isn’t a big issue. I’m just trying to be more money and health conscious. Eating out every now and again is no big deal, but I can’t afford to do it everyday now.

          • Andrew Champagne

            Yep, pretty much my situation. I’m excited when a local sports team wins and Papa John’s offers a half-off deal for a large pizza. That’s dinner one night and lunch the next day!

          • Devin Harris

            We had Marco’s pizza last night. The plan was to bring some in for lunch, but wouldn’t you know it’s all gone!

    • mike

      I live close enough to work to go home for lunch.

      • Devin Harris

        I used to. For as much as I hated the old place, it was a 10 minute walk

      • DAJackson7

        I could do that, but i just bring leftovers from home, warm them up, have a ten minute lunch total and get back to work so i can leave earlier

    Best music video of all time is without a doubt Trapped in the Closet by R. Kelly….there is no other valid answer lol.

    • Dwayne

      Ron Isley was the best

    • American Dad’s parody was better!

    • Devin Harris

      Not sure if it fits the criteria but my favorite is Murder Was the Case. That was more of a mini-movie though

    • Bruce Chung

      I think I saw like 1 1/2 of them. I was completely confused and semi-entertained by it.

    • Basscase

      Nice how you spelled “Smooth Criminal” that way.

  • cultstatus

    This is from Foley, Vince is ridiculous:

    “I was about to go out there a couple weeks ago, and I heard Braun Strowman say, I want a title shot. Mr. McMahon’s behind the curtain, at the board watching the monitor, and he goes, oh god, it’s not a title shot. I was thinking to myself, then what is it? That’s exactly what I would go to call it when I would go out there. You want a title shot? He’s like, it’s a title match. It’s a match! So if you ever wonder what it’s like to see a six-foot-eight, three hundred pound behemoth get chewed out, you should’ve been there.”

    • maskedcabana

      “Championship opportunity!”

    • No lube for you, I’m going in dry, PAL!

    • mike

      Foley is a good dad to put up with that shit to get his kids in with the company.

    • Bruce Chung

      Vince McMahon needs to die.

    • Hayden

      Vince is so weird with his insistence on certain words and phrases at the exclusion of others. For a while there the announcers had to say “a match with championship implications” instead of “#1 contender’s match”.

    • JimbobJones

      I’m really starting to think that Vince is trying to destroy his own company before he dies.

      That, or he’s just trying to do as many ludicrous things as possible “because he can”

  • chicagodem79

    So I missed Smackdown last night because of…..Valentine’s Day lol, how was the show?

    • Andrew Champagne

      Pretty good!

    • Mikey

      Really good triple threat title match; Mickie and Becky was good; rest of the show was okay.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Daft Punk had some weird videos back in the day.

  • Bruce Chung

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Randy Orton = Carmelo Anthony in similarity. Great in their own ways, but not the greatest. Loved by casuals, hated on by experts or people who know about their professions.

    • Dwayne

      The backlash on Melo has gotten to the point where he is kinda underrated.

      • Bruce Chung

        It happens a lot of players getting close to past-prime.

        I think all the negativity and chaos has affected him. His rebounding and scoring just aren’t the same as in previous years. As he’s lost a step, he’s jab-stepping into jumpers more and more unless he’s switched to a bigger man.

      • Brian_Bayless

        I saw him play the C’s twice and he is easily frustrated and clearly lost a step or two. Seems to struggle switching his game

        • juvydriver

          He needs to be a #2 option on a team now. He would be a killer guy in the role. He just has to accept that it’s who he is now.

    • Wild Wing

      I don’t think I’ve seen an interview with a wrestler asked about Orton that doesn’t call him an all time great worker.

      It’s usually the “Pretend Experts” who hate him.

      • Comdukakis

        true. I despise Orton but he is pretty universally praised by other wrestlers as a great worker. Now as a person….

      • JimbobJones

        You can be a great worker without being an entertaining worker…

      • Hayden

        Was just about to say this. His peers hold him in high regard and love working with him.

    • Andrew Champagne

      Kevin Love is probably a better comp. A vital piece in a few big spots (UCLA/Cleveland for Love, Evolution and a few other good angles for Orton), and a heck of a player in the right situation, but not someone you’d necessarily want as your #1 guy.

      • Bruce Chung

        Melo is much closer to being done than Love, although the latest injury doesn’t help.

        • Andrew Champagne

          Orton’s got several years left. He’s only 36.

          • Bruce Chung

            Melo only has a couple left too before being nigh-useless. And for a scorer like him, not being able to score means he can’t play in the NBA. Vince Carter changed his play styles years before he got old. Melo really hasn’t.

  • mike

    Talking Heads second album, “More Songs About Buildings and Food,” was named as a joke about rock bands’ tendency to have a second record slump, as second records are often full of songs that were hastily written or leftover from the first record.

  • Diddly

    Marissa Mazzola can still get it

    • Dwayne

      Haven’t seen her in a long time but I remember when she was on WWF tv in the late 90s and she looked good.

      • Diddly

        She’s in the pic with the McMahons and Trump posted below

  • The Silver Fox

    Favorite Talking Heads songs:
    Psycho Killer
    Once in a Lifetime
    Burning Down the House
    Take Me to the River
    Life During Wartime

    Albums:
    Remain in Light
    Speaking in Tongues
    Talking Heads ’77

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Psycho killer’s the only song from them I’ve ever heard.

    • mike

      I think my favorite is the rerelease of Stop Making Sense.

    • TatR!

      I’d thrown Heaven and Air in place of Burning Down The House and Take Me To The River

    • Wild Wing

      “Thank You For Sending Me An Angel” is phenomenal.

    • Ioan Morris

      Prefer the version of Take me to the River from Stop Making Sense.

      • mike

        My friend got that album not knowing it was live and got really pissed.

        I saw the Demme film in college, they rereleased it in 1999 or 2000. Top 5 movie experience for me.

        • Ioan Morris

          Pissed off? It might be the greatest live album ever.

  • Robinson Tilapia

    It was the wrong gimmick for Emma to begin with. I actually hope she can get back to capitalizing on the momentum she had pre-injury now.

    • There’s nothing wrong with Emma showing her bewbs!

      • Robinson Tilapia

        Zach Ryder might even job to you.

    • WWF1987

      Pairing her back up with Dana Brooke is a simple fix.

      • Comdukakis

        or better yet replacing Dana Brooke with her and firing Brooke who has shown zero ability in ring (decent character though)

        • Robinson Tilapia

          Or bring up the Aussies and create the Aussie Triad.

  • WWF1987

    I watched Creed earlier today. It was a fine film.

    • I didn’t like the training scene. Rocky is all about producing awesome fights and training montages, but the traiining montage was bad.

      • WWF1987

        The movie felt like 30 minutes was clipped.

    • Mikey

      Thought it was awesome. Hope they make another

    According to mmafighting.com, former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is on the verge of signing a new multi-fight contract with the UFC. The site reports that after months of on-and-off negotiations, both sides have agreed to terms on a new deal. A return in the third quarter of 2017 is currently being targeted. The new deal will put an end to a three-year saga between the UFC and St-Pierre. New UFC owners, WME|IMG, face considerable loan payments each year, and with Ronda Rousey & Conor McGregor’s futures up in the air as far as their next fights go, bringing back another PPV draw in Georges St-Pierre shouldn’t come as a surprise.

  • The Silver Fox

    Tina Weymouth, Bootsy Collins, Larry Graham, Berry Oakley and Donald “Duck” Dunn would be my favorite bass players.

    • mike

      Ive heard Tina is kinda nuts

    • Wild Wing

      John Entwistle

    • Ioan Morris

      Too many to mention.

    • Bruce Chung

      My answer on most music would be the Who.

    • Robert

      Prince was pretty insane on the bass too.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Geddy Lee.

    • Basscase

      Mine would be:
      Bootsy
      Paul Denman (plays bass for Sade, tighter pockets are rarely played)
      Wooten
      Abraham Laboriel
      Wayman Tisdale (dig his upbeat style)

      Nathan East is really growing on me.

      • Ioan Morris

        Good choices.

        • Basscase

          Wooten would go higher because the UWF sampled his song for their intro.

          • Ioan Morris

            These days I’m digging Jamareo Artis who plays with Bruno Mars and Joe Dart of Vulfpeck, who you should check out.

          • Basscase

            Cool, thanks for the recommendation.

    • mike

      Geddy Lee and Billy Gould.

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      Don’t forget Jaco Pastorius

  • Comdukakis

    Now that we’ve had a couple days to enjoy Bayley’s title win (and I did love it) let me tell you why it was a huge mistake. As much as Charlotte is great (good worker, good promo, seems like a star), she isn’t really a draw. She’s part of an ensemble that makes WWE entertaining. Bayley on the other hand has the ability to move numbers long term. She makes people feel good and she appeals to a demographic that WWE struggles with, young girls and females in general). She sells a ton of merchandise, which Charlotte does not. Heck my wife had a great suggestion about Bayley even putting out an exercise/fitness program for aimed at young girls. She simply has the potential to make the WWE a lot more money than Charlotte, regardless of whether Charlotte is at this time a better worker, promo, etc.
    Charlotte to me seems like a HHH pet project. I have nothing to go on this from but my own two eyes (meaning no backstage rumors) but look at your heels since HHH in 02-05 was the “smart heel” who was simply smarter and better than the faces. Since then pretty much all WWE heels have been cowards, goofballs, or monsters (usually briefly such as Khali, Umaga, etc.) I can’t really think of any heels that month after month beat people by being more intelligent and better like HHH used to….until Charlotte. So you get this ppv streak. The issue is, on one cares. People care that Charlotte is good. People care that she is solid on the mic. People care that she is a great character. But the ppv streak? People don’t give a damn, especially since she has now lost the belt on Raw 3 or 4 times. So because of this ppv streak that no one actually cares about, no matter how much Michael Cole shills it, Bayley loses her big moment at WM and instead gets that first tile on Raw. Again I was thrilled but it simply wasn’t the same. Now Bayley will lose at Fast Lane (or a double countout or something) and lose in a 4 way at WM, all so Charlotte can keep a meaningless ppv streak alive at the expense of a much better long term money making prospect. I think it was very short sighted by the WWE.

    • Wild Wing

      Charlotte is a lot like Triple H.

      Like him, she’s an amazing worker snd character that isn’t so much a star as she is a mountain or foil.

    • chicagodem79

      I do think the PPV win streak is really stupid, but I also don’t mind Bayley getting a win to make her more of a threat to win in a big match situation. I know her character is the ultimate underdog face, but you walk that fine line of the fans losing faith in her because she never wins the big one. I’d be more ok with it if it wasn’t for the rumor that they want to emphasize this PPV win streak.

      • Comdukakis

        you don’t do the Raw thing. You wait until WM. she gets the big win. Then immediately Asuka attacks her. Asuka takes the belt quickly. Bayley is right back to being a great underdog, Asuka has a built in storyline that doesn’t require english, and Bayley get’s her “moment” that WWE loves so much

        • chicagodem79

          That would definitely work, although a bit telegraphed (because no one “really” cares about the PPV win streak). If they’re intent on this stupid ass win streak, I’m ok with Bayley getting a win now so that she’s a real contender.

          • Comdukakis

            but my problem is since there is now no WM moment, Bayley ain’t winning at WM. You watch. The streak will continue, Charlotte will drop the belt on Raw a couple more times in the next six months and maybe….just maybe someone beats her at WM in new Orleans, long after the chance to make Bayley the female Cena is gone.

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          Eh,Bret Hart’s 1st title win wasn’t at WM 10 yet it’s still a fond memory and a “wrestlemania moment”

          • Dwayne

            There really aren’t that many iconic WM moments of winning the title for the first time if you think about it.

          • “No Way Jose” Gomez

            Warrior and Austin come to mind

          • Comdukakis

            again, Bayley aint’ winning at WM. Especially in a 4 way

    • Andrew Champagne

      I have absolutely no problem with any of it. They’re churning out several ***1/2 matches a month with that division, one that, as recently as five years ago, was spotlighting models who couldn’t work. I’m not going to get outraged by the booking when that kind of progress has been made.

      • Comdukakis

        but i’m not complaining about match quality or even Charlotte per se, I’m talking about the “money being left on the table” part here. And since WWE loves their “moments” losing out on a giant WM moment to keep up a streak that literally ZERO people care about.

  • JimbobJones

    So they see the light on the Emmalina thing and cancel it after a couple of months.

    But 3 years in, and they’re STILL going with the Roman Reigns experiment.

    Vince 2017 is the most hilarious Vince.

  • WWF1987

    Is Luke Harper going to win the #1 contenders battle royal on Smackdown to make the title match at Mania a triple threat? Or will Luke seemingly win the battle royal only to have Orton eliminate him to win it?

    • Comdukakis

      so I assume this battle royale happened on Talking Smack? What was the storlyine? Replacement for Orton at WM since he won’t wrestle Waytt?

      • WWF1987

        Yep. Bryan announced it on Talking Smack.

    • itwastyped

      They will be massively jumping the gun with Harper if he’s wrestling for the world title at Mania. Guy needs a gimmick/attire/music change ASAP. Not to mention establishing himself as a singles star – like maybe having one memorable match

    • zahidf

      But why would they have Orton in the Battle Royal at all? And that would be a dick heel move by Orton…

      • WWF1987

        Have Orton come out , by Wyatt’s orders, once Luke is the last man left so that it prevents Luke from facing Bray.

  • Johnny Clever

    So the undertaker matches at wrestle mania post lesnar have been useless.

    Proposed solution: give Undertaker the Streak back.

    Precedent: in real world athletics victories get voided out all the time. Just say it’s been determined that Lesnar was on the juice at that Mania and therefore his win is voided from history. Voila, Streak lives again.

    • Bruce Chung

      I really thought WWE would just ignore the loss and proceed as if it didn’t happen.

      • Basscase

        They ignored Taker’s first match with HHH at WM (which was considerably better than the next 2).

    • Night

      Or the old fuckhead can gracefully retire while he’s still able to walk.

    • chicagodem79

      In 1991 WWF, I think that works, in 2017 WWE, people would see right through that, it would be a disaster (plus I think Taker is DONE in the ring).

    • The Rabid One

      The man needs a new Hip, he’s done. Let him limp away into the sunset

  • The Rabid One

    So again the question must be asked, what was the point of Emmalina? Is it to see if Vince can fuck something up faster than WCW did with Glacier?

    • Bruce Chung

      Vince got a laugh.

    • Night

      At least Kizarny got a match!

      • Mikey

        This is somewhere in between Kizarny and that Vade Hansen dude.

        • maskedcabana

          Emmalina is more Dustin Rhodes/Seven without the shoot promo.

    • Dwayne

      At least they followed through with Glacier and he was around for a while.

      • maskedcabana

        The best is when he sold off parts of his gimmick to other wrestlers.

      • Bruce Chung

        I listened to that pod with Tony Schivone last week. They actually think Glacier was overhyped and couldn’t live up to expectations.

        In retrospect, they are right. There’s no way the way it was promoted that it wouldn’t have been seen as a cheesy Sub-Zero rip off.

        • Comdukakis

          and yet the angle came up with two workers who were vastly better (Wrath and Mortis) and included a great character in Ernest Miller.

          • The Rabid One

            Right at least through symbiosis we had better wrestlers come out of the Glacier fiasco. But this Emmalina stuff was simply a waste of money, time and film so Vince can have a chuckle

  • mike

    In 2008 David Byrne and Brian Eno collaborated on “Everything that Happens will Happen Today.” Besides being a really good record, it’s one of the best mixed I’ve ever heard. A ripped mp3 of that sounds better than most bands cd quality.

    Favorite bass song:

  • DAJackson7

    I just bought tickets to a Smackdown house show….and i don’t feel bad about it

    • Bruce Chung

      “Ryan Ward is no longer with the WWE”

    • chicagodem79

      The GF bought tickets to a Road to Wrestlemania show for my birthday on March 5th, I believe it’s a Smackdown show too, so I’m excited for that.

      • Bruce Chung

        If she likes you, it’s Smackdown.

        If she hates you, it’s Raw.

      • DAJackson7

        Oh yeah, to be honest if it was Raw i wouldn’t even bother.

    • Comdukakis

      you shouldn’t. i had a blast at the one I went to recently

  • Austin saying Chyna was lucky that he was in such a good after he stunned her is funnier in hindsight.

    • Hayden

      What’s the context?

      • After No Way Out (of Texas) and Austin calls Chyna dumb for getting involved in his bidness.

        • Hayden

          Ah.

  • Mikey

    Taker should have retired after the streak. If he was such a mark for himself that he needed a UFC guy to end the streak instead of new talent, he should have retired.

    • Bruce Chung

      It almost seems like he built a new house that he keeps wanting new additions for, so he keeps working.

      Or he bought a boat.

    • Night

      I think he comes back not only for the money but the fact he might have nothing else to keep himself occupied. Rock went to Hollywood, Austin has his reality game shows and podcast, Shawn Michaels has his church, hunting shows and is now dabbling in acting. But what does Taker have beyond wrestling?

      • Mikey

        Michelle McCool, I guess?

      • mike

        Beer and motorcycles. And a wife much younger than him.

      • Bruce Chung

        As long as he can still go, I don’t have a huge problem with it. Doing nothing = death.

        • chicagodem79

          The problem is he can’t go anymore, and it’s pretty obvious lol. Far be it for me to tell someone not to do something they love, but it’s borderline sad now.

          • Bruce Chung

            He definitely can’t really go anymore. I was never a huge fan of his, so it’s worse now that he can’t even wrestle once a year.

          • Night

            Seeing him stand up to Goldberg, Brock and even Roman at the Rumble with that big gut and looking like a dog-chewed loafer was sad.

      • Hayden

        Ritual sacrifices!

      • Death Rollins

        I’m surprised they haven’t used him as at least a heavy or old mentor or something in a WWE Studios film.

      • Matt Johnson

        Taker’s pretty big into real estate from what I understand. I’m sure that keeps him plenty busy. Maybe wrestling is just his “fun” thing to do.

        • Death Rollins

          So now my life goals just expanded to buying a car from Haku and a house from Taker.

  • The Rabid One

    Well the printer on my side of the office just died. No mailing out today. woo hoo.

  • Wild Wing

    Is Brock’s best match ever against Undertaker?

    • Dwayne

      CM Punk

    • Brian_Bayless

      Cena at Extreme Rules and Punk at SummerSlam are my top two

      • Wild Wing

        No Hell in a Cell in 2002?

        • Dwayne

          That was one of the best cell matches but I still liked the Punk match more.

        • Brian_Bayless

          That’s third.

    • Hayden

      Punk.

      Edit: strong case could be made for the Eddie match at No Way Out ’04, too.

    • Andrew Champagne

      What about Brock/Rock at SummerSlam?

      vs. Rock – No Mercy ’00

      All tied for me.

      • Wild Wing

        That Anderson match was awesome.

      • Hayden

        I’ve actually never seen an Angle TNA match, haha. From what I’ve read it sounds like he had some really good ones with a variety of guys, though.

    • chicagodem79

      Shane at KOR 2001.

      • Dwayne

        I loved the brutality of that match

    • Brian_Bayless

      His best was against Benoit at the Rumble

    • Daniel Swinney

      Benoit/Angle vs Rey/Edge

  • WWF1987

    -WOR after RAW: Dave Meltzer believes that RAW will average below 2.5 million viewers before the end of the year

    That’ll be depressing because that would mean Smackdown would be dipping near under 2 million.

    • mike

      As long as USA is happy with it…

    • Robert

      It’s okay, because people are watching on DVR, the mobile app, and a zillion other ways that aren’t reflected in the ratings!

      • itwastyped

        Plus they rack up insane views on YouTube, which is serious $$$, and who knows what else

      • TatR!

        you’ve gotta take into account homes with more than two television sets, and other things of that nature

    • Dwayne

      More ratings = more money but WWE is clearly making money in other ways.

    • maskedcabana

      Ratings are trending downwards across the board so it’s not too surprising.

  • Night

    I wonder who Vince loves more: HHH or the Undertaker…

    • Hayden

      “Don’t make me choose, PAL!”

    • Bruce Chung

      Taker.

      Triple H gave him grand daughters.

      • Randy Savage would have given Vince grandsons!

    • Dwayne

      Shawn

      • mike

        JBL

      • Bruce Chung

        Hogan is never far behind either.

        • Robert

          After all the dough Hogan made Vince, he should never have a bad word to say about Hulk. Ever.

          • Bruce Chung

            Didn’t we come up with a silly theory that Vince and Hogan chats with each other on a daily basis? And that’s why both are semi-insane, because they just boast and recycle ideas.

    • chicagodem79

      Roman Reigns

  • Wild Wing

    What’s your favorite Triple H match: and

    • vs. Daniel Bryan – WM 30

      • Robert

        You know, I don’t think I’ve ever gone back and rewatched this one.

    • Robert

      3 Stages of Hell at No Way Out

      • Hayden

        That’s my vote, too.

      • Dwayne

        Yep

    • vs WCW!

    • chicagodem79

      Cactus Jack at RR 2000, with Shawn at Summerslam ’02 at close second.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      triple threat at wm 20
      vs austin at nwo 2001
      vs hbk on Raw 2003
      vs foley at RR 2000

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      I love them all equally!

    • Backlash 2000.

      • Actually, scratch that. I think I like the Jericho LMS match a little more.

      • Mikey

        NO!!!

    • Mikey

      Backlash 2000

    • TatR!

      Wrestlemania 12

    • zahidf

      Cactus Jack, Rumble

    • jobber123

      Vs Warrior at mania 12

  • The Rabid One

    Carlos Santana stated that Beyoncé is not a singer. He “walked back” the comment today by stating she was a talented artist and person. He stated they took him out of context.

    However, I would point out that walk back, sort to speak, never referred to her being a talented singer.

    Ha, crazy old Santana. He’s always good for a laugh.

    • Robert

      The Beyhive must have gotten to him

      • The Rabid One

        They buzz and swarm all over Twitter.

    • chicagodem79

      Factually it’s incorrect lol. I know the “in” thing to do is to slam Beyonce these days, she’s not a bad singer at all, and she’s clearly going into the DGAF territory (good for her lol). It’s just her absurdly over the top fans make it difficult to take.

      • Night

        Meh. It’s not any less annoying as Madonna fans used to be.

        • Robert

          Madonna fans didn’t have Twitter though to launch attacks from

          • Night

            If you’re annoyed by what a bunch of people on Twitter are saying about a singer, then you’re the one with problems, son.

          • Dwayne

            Agreed. Fuck what people say on twitter.

          • Robert

            I’ve never seen anything like it. They organize attacks. It’s wild.

      • Dwayne

        She sings fine and from what i’ve seen of her, she puts on good shows. Not sure what people hate so much. I’m not a big pop music guy, but I get why she has fans.

        • Robert

          It’s not Beyonce herself. Her loyal subjects are such sheep that they literally go after anyone who has anything remotely critical to say about her. They will attack anyone on Twitter that they think is “hating”

          • Dwayne

            Ok she has crazy fans. Those fans suck. It’s not like Bey is telling them to do that dumb shit.

          • Robert

            Right. That’s why I don’t think anyone really hates Beyonce herself.

      • Brian_Bayless

        She’s a decent singer.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      He got ridiculed for not saying Beyonce is the greatest human in the history of humanity

      • The Rabid One

        Even Kanye woke from his stupor to attack Santana.

    • Death Rollins

      I wonder if he’d say that if she agreed to do one of the collaborations that kept him briefly relevant like 15 years ago.

  • Bruce Chung

    There’s a 42 footer fishing boat called the Undertaker.

    I wouldn’t ever get on that thing.

  • johntcole

    Early botch aside, Gran Metalik vs Drew Gulak was pretty good

    • Don’t buy it, Drew Gulak’s involved.

      • johntcole

        He’s fine as a second rate Dean Malenko.

      • Wild Wing

        Drew Gulak gets a little bit worse for every person in the crowd above fifty people.

        • johntcole

          What’s weird is how good he was playing Soldier Ant.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          He’s pretty dope at Evolve shows and those usually have over 500 people.

          • And he’s not very good there either

          • Kenny_Reigns

            The Hell you talking about? He’s always ***+ in Evolve.

          • Him leading Catch Point is always ***+ but in the ring I don’t think I ever gotten that high in his work in EVOLVE. I think when he won the tag belts may be the closest.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            He had a ****1/2 match against ZSJ in March of 2016. He’s always good in Evolve outside of Thatcher matches.

          • Brian_Bayless

            His work against Thatcher in the match where they had no ropes was brutal. Easily ****

          • I have not seen that yet. At the very least, the match is intriguing

          • Kenny_Reigns

            That match was great.

  • So how will the Brock vs Goldberg match go? Brock has the match won, but nWo walk briskly down the ring and attack Brock. Goldberg has the match won, but Rock, Austin and Shawn come out to make the save. Brock looks like he has the match won, but Goldberg kicks out. Then HHH comes out in his tank and fires a shot at Goldberg as Brock covers for the win. Post-match, everyone shakes hands as Michael Cole tells us that WWE has finally won the war, for realsies this time!

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Brock suplexes Goldberg once and he explodes into 1,000 little tiny Goldbergs that keep attacking him and eventually drag him down like that scene in Gulliver’s Travels

    • Bruce Chung

      Goldberg beats Lesnar in 3 minutes. Spear, spear, Jackhammer.

    • WWF1987

      Spear. Jackhammer. 1…2..3… hopefully.

    • chicagodem79

      I honestly don’t have much hope for it. Goldberg still hasn’t shown he can do a regular wrestling match, so it will probably be quick one way or the other.

    • zahidf

      Brock blocks the Spear with a knee, three suplex’s, F5

    • Eric Von Erich

      Don’t forget HHH giving everyone a pat on the cheek to let them know he thinks they’re worthy of his recognition.

  • “No Way Jose” Gomez

    Speaking of bass players, the bassist for Kittie passed away like a day or so ago

    • Dwayne

      I guess he didn’t have 9 lives?

    • TatR!

      I saw that earlier. She apparently wasn’t the bassist during like 2001 which is the only time I was aware of them

  • Bruce Chung

    Mr Burns is Vince.

  • Wild Wing

    It’s kind of cool that Bryan’s best match in WWE was against Cena. Big Match John boosts everybody he faces to another level.

    • I thought he was Part Time John now.

      • The Polish Hammer

        Part Time Private Jet John, according to Styles

    • chicagodem79

      Interesting….I’d have to seriously think about that….the HHH match, the Punk series, or Cena…or somebody else I’m not even thinking of….

    • zahidf

      I’d go with Cena as well actually.

    • Ioan Morris

      Feel like Punk and Triple H were better myself.

  • johntcole

    I think WWE should hire all of the Colony from Chikara for 205 Live just so Drew Gulak can go back to playing his much better persona of Soldier Ant.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      That was Drew? I didn’t know that!

      I’ve always loved The Colony. They’re all good workers and the gimmick is great!

  • zahidf

    Best Bret Hart match ever?
    Mine would be the Austin Wrestlemania one.

    • Wild Wing

      WM10 against Owen

    • Austin at Survivor Series.

    • vs. Austin at WM13 and it’s not even close

    • Mikey

      Austin at 17.

    • Not his bestest match, but my personal favorite was his match with 1-2-3 Kid where Bret could go out and make anyone look like a main event threat.

    • chicagodem79

      Top 5
      1)Austin Wrestlemania 13
      2)Perfect KOR ’93
      3)Diesel Survivor Series 95
      4)Austin Survivor Series 96
      5)Piper Wrestlemania VIII

    • Andrew Champagne

      Bret-Austin is #1. Unfortunately, Bret-Benoit may be #2.

    • The Rabid One

      Bret v Austin my favorite
      Hidden Gem

      Bret v Randy Savage SNME

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Best Jericho match?

    • Andrew Champagne

      Take your pick of the HBK trilogy in 2008.

    • Daniel Swinney

      Jericho/Benoit vs Austin/HHH

    • Wild Wing

      No Mercy 2008

    • zahidf

      Last Man standing with HHH or Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Probably with Shawn, Jericho’s one of those guys that only wrestles to the level of his opponent. I can’t remember a single time where I thought “Wow Jericho really pulled that guy up to something amazing.”

    • Eric Von Erich

      I’d say the Jericho/Benoit vs. Austin/HHH tag match from Raw where HHH blows out his quad.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Best Orton singles match?

    • Daniel Swinney

      No idea but my favorite is the submissions match vs D-Bry where he tapped with a kendo stick across his face.

    • Wild Wing

      No Mercy 2007

      Although the street fight with Bryan was great too.

      • Wild Wing

        HBK at SS07 was awesome too.

        Both Backlash 07 and 08 deserve praise but probably don’t count since they are multi-man ones.

    • maskedcabana

      Foley Backlash 04.

    • chicagodem79

      Orton’s street fight with Cactus Jack maybe?

      • Eric Von Erich

        It’s the only Orton match I’ve ever wanted to watch more than once.

    • zahidf

      The Cactus Jack one

    • Undertaker at Mania 21 or Foley at Backlash.

    • What’s in the box?!

      Either backlash 2004 or Summerslam v Christian

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Best Miz singles match?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Ziggler at TLC

    • zahidf

      John Morrison fall counts anywhere.

    • Andrew Champagne

      Ziggler at No Mercy, probably. Technically, it wasn’t great, but the emotions/selling brought it up a long way.

    • Wild Wing

      Ziggler a couple months ago.

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Sure!

  • The Polish Hammer

    Best Barry Horowitz match?

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      Skip

    • Death Rollins

      When he beat Candido!

      • Death Rollins

        Although if we’re going beyond singles matches, the ’95 Survivor Series match was awesome.

    • w/1-2-3 Kid vs the Quebecers!

    • zahidf

      Skip at Summerslam

    • Daniel Swinney

      vs Poffo at the Spectrum

    • Brian_Bayless

      Against the Blue Blazer at the LA Sports Arena in 1988

  • HartKiller_09

    The United Nations have been very, very unfair to Israel. Fake United Nations!

    • zahidf

      SAD! MAGA

    • The Polish Hammer

      Someone should build a wall around them.

      • The Rabid One

        I say we defund the beast. Defund the Beast!!!

      • Comdukakis

        they should. Maybe the fuckers would stop building settlements that way designed to provoke the palestinians then pleading “victim”

    • Comdukakis

      I’m always perplexed by so many conservatives who love Israel and believe they can do no wrong but actualy aren’t real fond of jews. Its a strange dichotomy

      • Daniel Swinney

        Maybe they want a Jewish homeland because they’re hoping all the Jewish people will move there.

        …Or they want ethnic nation-states to be seen as a good thing so they can push for a white nation-state.

  • Ioan Morris

    I saw some commentary a few weeks ago suggesting that the Foley/Triple H match from NWO was better than RR. Keen to go back and reassess.

    • chicagodem79

      Eh, I don’t agree with that, the Rumble match had more emotion and physicality to me.

    • Comdukakis

      both had pluses but the RR match wins by a hair.

  • Death Rollins

    So what the hell was the Emmalina gimmick even supposed to be? Are they working the sheets, brutha?

    • She was gonna be a hot chick and do hot chick things

      • The Polish Hammer

        She probably bailed once Playboy announced they’re bringing nudity back.

    • She would walk around topless.

    • Eric Von Erich

      That report says that she was supposed to be a character like Sable or The Kat, but she wasn’t getting it or committing to it.

      They have someone who actually plays “evil” relatively well and they wanted her to drop that to be generic eye candy.

      • Death Rollins

        I really don’t get that at all. She’s a great bitter, mean heel, and they’re way beyond the days when “Generic Hot Chick” was a gimmick.

        I’m still hoping against hope that this is part of the angle. I want to see a scathing Emma promo about how they’re trying to make her into useless eye candy.

      • Comdukakis

        sounds like this would be a backstage battle between Vince and the new guard like Stephanie over outdated stereotypes and doing stuff that displeases sponsors.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    Best Dalton Castle match?

    • Wild Wing

      Hasn’t happened yet. Someday though.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Sure it has. Even if a guy only has one match, he’s had a best match!

    • Not a match but I loved that time he ate an Okada-buck

    • Probably the Silas match that was the climax of their feud that then continued for several more months.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        That feud was death.

        • It was fine during the actual period where it made sense. It was the next part that was bad.

          • Diddly

            But Delirious is a BOOKING GENIUS

    • zahidf

      Okada.

    • Ripner Cabbit

      Vs. Archibald Peck when he was still Smooth Sailing.

  • Wild Wing

    Best Sheamus match:

    • Wild Wing

      JoMo

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Bryan,ER 2012

      • Ioan Morris

        That was great.

    • Death Rollins

      It’s kind of sad that the most important match of his career is probably going to be 18 seconds over Bryan.

    • Comdukakis

      the cesaro one that ended in a draw and started their tag team, despite the non finish it was 4 stars and I loved it

    • zahidf

      Probably Bryan 2 out 3 Extreme Rules.

    • What’s in the box?!

      I love the one where he dropped the belt to Big Show

    • riraho

      If anyone has a catalog of Sheamus matches in their head that they can sort through and pick a best match….you have watched too much wrestling in your life.

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      the ladder match with Morrison is the most I’ve ever enjoyed a Sheamus match by a lot

  • Ioan Morris

    Best Yoshi Tatsu match?

    • vs Sheamus, catering 2014.

      • Ioan Morris

        Ha, forgot about that.

  • The Polish Hammer

    I suspect that WWE will try to put on something resembling a wrestling match between Goldberg and Owens at Fastlane before the required shmozz interference from Jericho and Lesnar. I think they want a litmus test to see what Goldberg can do so they know how to book Mania, and what better way than to do it on a PPV that nobody’s watching?

  • Ioan Morris

    Good football anecdote here specifically for Liverpool/Man Utd fans. https://twitter.com/GNev2/status/831883595379798016

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Best IC singles title match of the 2010s?

    • Wild Wing

      Ambrose-Owens

      • Death Rollins

        Bonus points for them selling the effects in the Rumble later.

    • I liked Owens v Ambrose at the Rumble.

  • HartKiller_09

    Oh here we go. The “fake media” has been very unfair to Michael Flynn.

  • HartKiller_09

    Documents can’t simultaneously be leaked “illegally” and not exist, idiot.

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      Stop hating Middle America. We have a lot of economic anxiety over the colored fellow.

      • Comdukakis

        yeah it was funny. friend of a friend on FB posted this article telling us why we liberals should read it to understand why Trump not only got elected but still has all his idiot supporters who ignore facts. Bunch of intellectual words that boiled down to “the world is changing and I find it scary so I prefer someone who will blow up the system so everyone can feel scared.”

        • Biscuit Done Died!

          The people who voted for the Kremlin wanted to punish people they blame for their problems. People can indict the media and “elites” all they want, but what happened was nothing more than a tantrum.

          • Comdukakis

            but the scary thing is the system really broke. We went from one side being skeptical of the media and being all in on Foxnews to being skepitcal of fox news, believing anything that contradicts their worldview is fake, and being all in on shit like Brietbart and infowars. I don’t know how you put the genie back in the bottle when so many people literally dismiss anything negative about their guy or party as “fake news”

          • Biscuit Done Died!

            Sadly, you have to give the baby his bottle. It has to be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that electing a Russian dupe is a bad idea and show exactly why. Thankfully it’s super easy.

  • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

    “Mick Foley says Vince McMahon yelled at Braun Strowman for saying he wanted a title shot instead of a title match”

    What a fucking dork

    • Robert

      Good thing he didn’t say ‘belt’

    • WWF1987

      The word “shot” might be assumed too violent or something by Mattel.

      • Comdukakis

        yet spending 13 weeks hyping a “hot chick” character is fine? Vince is an odd, odd man.

      • TatR!

        Mattel sells Suicide Squad action figures

        • Death Rollins

          They’re collectibles!

        • Comdukakis

          personally I like a PG WWE due to my kid and other people’s kids. But it’s important to note that WWE goes far beyond “PG” with stuff like violent words and even blood. I don’t think it’s as much Mattels’ fault as WWE being OVERLy cautious

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        THE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND ELIMINATION CHAMBER PLAY SET :NOW WITH BREAKABLE GLASS PODS

        • Those pods are bullet-proof, knife-proof and laser-proof! Still not Dolph Ziggler-proof

    • Death Rollins

      I don’t wish ill on Vince, but when his dementia takes its full course I can’t wait to see what his new preferred verbiage is.

      • The Polish Hammer

        “You’ll say ‘championship opportunity’ and like it, PAL!”

        • Death Rollins

          “CHAMPIONSHIP WHATTAMANUEVER, PAL!”

    • The Rabid One

      Vince has gone full douche

    • Dwayne

      That’s weird to me. What’s the fucking difference?

      • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

        This is a man who believes sneezing is a sign of weakness.

        Who knows what counts as a justification in his mind.

        It’s just another example of why everything on their product sounds robotic and inauthentic, if their policing phrases that mean the same damn thing.

      • Comdukakis

        two things. One: Vince periodically has to show he’s in charge. Two: Foley is due for his normal fallout with Vince. Since Foley is scheduled to leave soon Vince has to quicken the pace. Now he can yell at Foley for spreaing backstage stuff about him.

    • Vintage

      What a surprise.

      He didn’t demand he say “championship opportunity.”

  • Wild Wing

    Sami should be the IC champ or US champ.

    • Comdukakis

      he will be soon

    • He’s probably going to be US champion at Fastlane.

      Jericho has to be bailing soon to do Fozzy stuff

      • Comdukakis

        yep after WM. got festivals and then a full tour

  • PEYTONLINA IS COMING!

  • What’s Up Jerks?

    • Diddly

      In short, they are going very well. Saleucami has fallen, and Master Vos has moved his troops to Boz Pity.

  • WWF1987

    I want to watch some pre-1985 Jim Crockett Promotions. Is there one single weekly TV show that I should seek out or am I stuck watching World Wide, GCW, MACW, and World Championship Wrestling?

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      Mid Atlantic was the A show.

      • WWF1987

        Sucks that it’s hard to find episodes of it.

  • I love they wanted a new sable so they pluck Emma out of a character that was really working and try and force her into that character meanwhile…..lana is standing in the corner going….really… you guys don’t think maybe I’m.. ok cool you guys know best I’m sure

    • Night

      They tried making Lana the new Sable. It REALLY didn’t work.

    • Death Rollins

      Also, they have plenty of useless women on the roster. Emma’s good in the ring and a killer heel.

    • And Lana actually showed her boobs in some movie once!

      • RedStorm

        She has nice nipples

      • DAJackson7

        To the google!!!!!!!!

    • chicagodem79

      I don’t get why the need to make a Sable period lol.

      • Dwayne

        Because Sable was a draw

        • Death Rollins

          It’s such a different era now, though. Different audience with different requirements.

          • Dwayne

            A much smaller one too

        • Night

          But what made her a draw are things that they can’t/won’t do on TV anymore, like accentuate big tits or have her doing “the grind”. Beyond that, was there anything more to Sable?

    • Death Rollins

      Also, why wouldn’t they just call up Mandy Rose if they really wanted that? She’s already better than Dana or Eva, so she’s not too embarrassing in the ring.

    • Eva Marie was right there.

  • WWF1987

    Kinda weird that ROH is doing Cole/Daniels on their PPV and Cole/Castle on their non-televised Mania show. I would’ve thought they would put Castle’s title shot on PPV.

    GSP is officially back in ufc! They fucking needed him so bad. I’d have him fight Bisping right away and get that belt.

    • maskedcabana

      UFC is like WWE, depending on the old part timers as draws.

    • WWF1987

      GSP is my favorite fighter of all-time. I’m glad to see him fight again.

    • The Rabid One

      I would agree. They need another big PPV pay day as the UFC parent company is in a lot of debt.

  • jobber123

    I wonder if GSP will be allowed to get his own sponsors or if reebok just ponied up some serious cheese.

    • Night

      Whatever the case, you know he’s getting PAID to come back.

    • The Rabid One

      Reebok probably signed an independent deal with GSP. No cheesy 35k for him

        Excuse me. I went to the DeVry Institute!

        • The Rabid One

          At least it wasn’t ITT Tech, those jobbers.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          AT&T literally considers that the best education institution in the world. I was often demeaned for not having gone to DeVry and so was any other engineer with a degree from an actual university.

  • jobber123

    You buy ufc for 4 B’s. Ronda retires, lesnar and jones get suspended for steroids effectively ending Brocks career, jones did weasel out of the 2 year thing but he’s definitely looking bad, and Connor goes full retard. They had no choice but to bring in gsp. At least with him and Jones back at the end of june they have 2 star acts.

    • chicagodem79

      Which goes to show Dana is the smartest man in the room for selling high.

      • Comdukakis

        analysts said the price was too high. He sold at just he right moment to capitalize

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Except he didn’t sell. His bosses did.

        • chicagodem79

          I mean yeah technically his bosses did, but I haven’t seen anywhere that said that Dana resisted it or thought it was a bad idea.

          • maskedcabana

            He didn’t really have a say in the matter, but he got paid in the sale so I doubt he’s was going to object.

          • jobber123

            At thst price really how could anyone refuse. Ufc is obviously a super valuable company but 4 billion is insanity.

      • jobber123

        Yup, those guys bailed at the peak time

      • maskedcabana

        Zuffa owned it, not Dana. They’re the smart ones. Dana’s left holding the bag.

        • jobber123

          Dana got about 300 million for his little piece and kept his old job so he did ok. Frank and Lorenzo hit a 900 foot home run though.

        • The Rabid One

          Dana sold his 10%. He is high on cash

          • jobber123

            And he kept his old gig (although right now he might wish he hadn’t) so he did great.

    • Night

      The best thing they can do is not panic and go full Bellator. Just keep on putting out cards and let the stars develop.

    • I’m guessing they are looking at Dana like WTF
      Dana: bro….bro I didn’t fuckin know ::snicker snicker::

    • Diddly

      Also, tons of money/budget problems due to the insane TV costs

  • As well as his 2 finishers (The Leap Of Faith and the Van Terminator Coast to Coast) Shane’s wikipedia has 12 listed signature moves. Can you name them?

    • Death Rollins

      12?! How many are “Getting Suplexed Into Shit By Kurt Angle”?

    • Miko363

      Left jab
      Right jab
      Center jab
      Foot shuffle taunt
      Look at opponent

      I got 5 of them so far.

      • Those in fact only combine for one of them. The Shane-O-Shuffle.

    • riraho

      Pulling monitors off the announce table

    • He did the X-Factor a few times to X-Pac. I think he also had his own version of the Stunner.

    • Dr. Bob (Rowlf)

      He sometimes does a shitty version of Rock’s Floatover DDT, I think.

      • That is listed! We’re at 2/12 so far.

    • riraho

      Top rope elbow onto the announce table….is that considered Leap of Faith?

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      No

    • Hayden

      That jumping back elbow he does to an opponent who was Irish whipped into the ropes?

  • Robert

    It’s a fake Hall of Fame based on arbitrary criteria, Vince. Do the right thing and induct Big Van Vader while he’s still alive to see it.

  • jobber123

    Is there more $ in GSP vs Woodley or GSP vs Bisping? The woodley fight is the better match, but imo bisping is the opponent for gsp

    • Death Rollins

      The big money is in GSP vs. Shane O’Mac!

    • maskedcabana

      Bisping is a bigger draw with the European audience.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      GSP could beat Bisping, so it will be Bisping.

    • Bones

      Bisping is a much better opponent for GSP and would draw more money.

      I wouldn’t see GSP beating Woodley.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        He wouldn’t.

        • Bones

          Plus with the layoff and aged a bit could he even get down to 170? He usually cut what about 20 lbs for the fight?

    • Night

      Bisping. He can sell the fight with his mouth. Everyone hates Bisping and wants him to get destroyed.

    • WWF1987

      GSP vs Bisping by far. It would get a ton of UK and Canadian buys.

  • Mikey

    Seems like a wild day on the BoD!

  • At the risk of appearing terribly callous, Vader has already carnied his impending death once in the past year. While I’m sure he is sick, talking about “entering his final days” could just be him milking his last 2 years for sympathy.

    • Probably…I just want to know if he curses Ospreay with his final breath

    • Ioan Morris

      It’s really sad that he was still having to wrestle up to last year.

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      “Hey guys I’m dying!”

        Omg this one is excellent too!

    • Wild Wing

      I didn’t want to be that guy, but that was my exact thought on it. He’s exactly the kind of guy who would “work the marks” for a WWE payday.

      • Robert

        Wrestling fans never believe anything lol

        • Wild Wing

          Vader has historically been full of shit to an almost Hogan level for ten years.

  • The full list of Shane’s signature moves:

    Boston crab
    Bronco buster – parodied from X-Pac
    Double underhook suplex
    Camel clutch
    Elbow drop
    Float-over DDT
    Inverted facelock neckbreaker
    Low blow
    Multiple Kendo stick shots
    Shane O Shuffle (Three left-handed jabs followed by a right-handed punch, with theatrics)[1] – parodied from Rocky Johnson
    Sharpshooter
    Shooting star press, sometimes to a chair or garbage can on an opponent’s body or chest

    • chicagodem79

      His float over DDT always looked horrible lol.

    • Bones

      You didn’t mention the punches that whiff

    • Hayden

      They’re really being generous calling smacking someone with a kendo stick a “move”.

    • The Rabid One

      The low blow is a move set. interesting

    • Basscase

      You forgot “landing on his head”.

      Seriously, they should just allow Kurt Angle to wrestle Shane at WM. ALL THE BUYZ

    • Night

      They’re literally going medieval on our asses!

    • Well, here’s an easy solution… legalize marijuana.

      • I think all recreational drugs should be legal. But, I don’t expect it to happen on a federal level. Too much money and too many careers tied up in law enforcement.

        • Agreed. The only reason we perpetuate this is to keep the prisons filled, which essentially gives the government a slave labor workforce. Slavery never ended, it has just been rebranded over the years. First as “sharecropping,” now as “Federal Prison Industries.”

  • HartKiller_09

    Why did Vader wear his singlet backwards sometimes?

    • What are you gonna do about it? Tell him it’s backwards?

    • Yeah. The most infamous time I can recall was that angle where he attacks Gorilla Monsoon on RAW. His singlet was clearly on backwards lol

    • “Because fuck you. I’m Vader. That’s why.”

    • WWF1987

      To show that he could turn back time.

  • Stuart_Chartock

    About Emmalina: Good.

    If they’re just looking for a “pretty face” that can’t wrestle or talk, there are plenty of others that could have been given the role. Hell, that’s already Eva Marie’s entire character. Emma is good in the ring and was doing a GREAT job with the “Evil Emma” character, why they would want to change that… well, Vince is gonna Vince.

    That said, I do hope that all of the hype and last night’s segment are actually incorporated into her character. It’d be easy to turn it into an act of rebellion, of her saying that the company wanted her to “know her place” but then deciding to stick up for herself. And to keep her from turning face off of it, she could become more bitter and angry.

      • WITW

        What was the sign?

    • Robert

      I think Ambrose is still the IC champ. That should cheer you up.

    • Cena took a 2 foot fall backwards onto a giant bean bag where he basically landed on his feet and the announcers sold it like Foley being thrown off the roof of the Cell.

      • WITW

        Hahahahah really?

        • I’m not exaggerating in the least.

          • WITW

            Hahahaha, oh well, he’s still the best thing that shit company has. But that sounds awful.

        • Then he was laying on the ground selling for about 15 minutes, to the point where even the announcers were openly questioning why nobody was trying to pin him. It was a disaster.

    Interesting bit from the Jericho/Owens podcast was the former saying Jimmy Hart always told him that a sign in the crowd was a surefire way to tell if a gimmick/catchphrase was over. And now WWE tries to control that too.

  • ProjectBlue

    It’d take some maneuvering but if they insist on Goldberg for the title, have Lesnar jump Owens during a ref bump to get his match a title match, Vince gets a dickhead face when Goldberg pins to take advantage, Owens gets Lesnar at SummerSlam…. But more HHH shit and authority wackiness is great too, I guess

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    You can sense the collective groan from the GOP establishment today with Trump accusing all his woes on Fake Media. You either go to Washington to get shit done, which is pretty tough when your President goes full retard; or you’re purely a political creature that wants to win power, in which case you need that same Fake Media to make it look like you’re actually doing something.

    • Miko363

      • Biscuit Done Died!

        Whatever, elitist. I’m clearly not projecting.

      • I can’t wait until Trump is impeached and/or the Democrats regain control the White House/Congress. I am going to *torment* these shitheads about “YOU LOST, GET OVER IT!” and call them all RepubTard ConserviCuck snowflakes.

          Cuck.

        • Miko363

          If they want to actually discuss the issues and why they feel a certain way, I’m all for it. I’d just like to see someone explain their support for Trump without 1) deflecting or 2) painting the person asking them as a huge crybaby who can’t accept the election results and needs a safe space.

          • Biscuit Done Died!

            Libtard.

          • Same. I have tried over and over again to engage trump supporters in a reasonable discourse, but every single time it breaks down into comments about “Obummer” and whatever other horseshit. There is no intelligent defense for his man, it seems.

          • Biscuit Done Died!

            “Boo hoo Black President” is about it.

          • Seriously. It always comes back to what perceived mistakes Obama made, without ever directly answering my questions about Trump or his behavior. The entire conservative playbook is built on smoke and mirrors.

        • Miko363

          To be clear, I’m not a big fan of the hardcore SJW liberals who are outraged 24/7 either. They’re too fringe for me, too. I prefer to live in reality.

          • I’m probably one of those fringe lunatic liberals, if we’re being honest. I identify as a Socialist.

    • I swear to pink fucking monkey jeebus. The older I get, the more I want a cabin somewhere that will allow me to tell the world to fuck off. Total survivalist thing, well stocked, guns & shit…

      …but I clearly don’t have the cash.

      Feel free to assume that if I ever vanish from all forms of social media, I’ve either died or acquired a shitload of cash.

            2. “Survivalist” was a slight overstatement. More like isolated, but with conveniences, like stores within an hour’s drive, max.

          • I said cabin, and well stocked. This means I don’t need to fucking camp, or hunt, or whatever. I would have the funds to restock as necessary.

        Summertime was the best song he did. That had to be like 92 or so

        • Basscase

          And that was a sample of KatG’s “Summer Madness”.

          At least most of his stuff pre-87 was somewhat original.

    • Mordecai Jones

      Or you can listen to the absolutely soul-melting mood-uplifting pieces of art that the samples were taken from. That is real, beautiful music that someone made. No talking over a sample of what someone else created.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Nah.

        • Mordecai Jones

          Each his own. But don’t tell me the leftovers cobbled from the garbage in the back of a denny’s is a “good” meal

      • So do you have an issue with sampling itself as an artform?

        • Mordecai Jones

          No. I’m a big of electronic music/house music and a former DJ so that wouldn’t be very reasonable. I am ok with “vaporwave” which is basically a handful of people listening to someone slowing down or speeding up Sister Sledge and obscure Japanese funk. But I’m not into careers built on lazy sampling. That’s all

    • Robert

      No

  • tannerfamilyfun92

    Brother of a girl I know in Connecticut has been “dating” a girl from Texas for the past six years. They have only met in person twice.

    I’d say “too each his own,” but that’s a long time to go without sex.

    • Robert

      Not trying to be mean, but is this guy “right” in the head?

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        He’s normal, but very dorky. I get the feeling that he thinks this is the best that he can do.

        I don’t know the situation well enough, but it sucks if he thinks it’s a relationship and isn’t seeing other people and the girl doesn’t think it’s that and is chasing dick six ways from Sunday.

    Good idea:

    The ability to vote should depend on your tax returns.

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      I agree, but because I believe people under 18 should be allowed to vote if they work.

      • Wild Wing

        Under $30,000! No vote!

          • Hayden

            Yep, attaching a person’s value solely to their income is a pretty horrible idea.

    • mike
    • Ioan Morris

      They both paid the original artists, right? Unlike Kanye.

    • Wild Wing

      Puffy never wrote anything on the level of Getting Jiggy With It.

      • RedStorm

        But he did a mean Harlem Shake (the original one).

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Puffy rules, who else could come up with a killer lyric like “Mariah, Mofiah?”

      No one. That’s who. Absolutely fucking no one.

      • mike

        Damn son.

        Not arguing.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      That’s nothing compared to Vanilla Ice claiming that the bassline in Ice Ice Baby isn’t ripped off Under Pressure AND not giving credit to the original writer of Play That Funky Music.

      • The bassline was different. The Iceman had that little ting in there!

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    • RedStorm

      That sounds like women’s county college level basketball.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        It’s Virginia tech vs pittsburgh. The fatty plays for pittsburgh.

        • RedStorm

          Well, she must be local then.

  • Wild Wing

    Real reason people prefer Will to Puffy:

    Will stole from black artists. Puffy ripped off Zeppelin and The Police.

    America prefers to turn its back on Black on Black White Collar Crime.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Elvis ripped off black artists as well.

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        To be fair, a lot of the black musicians whose work Elvis covered later thanked him for making their tunes popular enough that they could live off them.

        Of course, Elvis made much more money off them than they did. Well, to be more accurate, Colonel Tom did…

    • Ioan Morris

      Yeah, but Zeppelin and the Police in turn ripped off black artists!

      • It’s music, everybody is ripping off somebody to some degree.

        • RedStorm

          They’re either ripping off someone’s music or someone style. It goes both ways between genres.

        • Ioan Morris

          I agree. I did a music degree and remember an extraordinarily uncomfortable lecture in which the concept of the Blues as a music form was taken apart by the lecturer.

          • Ioan Morris

            (It was uncomfortable because that assertion didn’t sit well with the one black guy who attended that class.)

        • Roseanne Marrv – #46

          If you’re not getting ripped off, your shit sucks.

    • Robert

    Are we talking Will vs Puffy? Is this 1997? LOL

    (Back in the day, we always though Will was fake as hell, and while Puffy was goofy, he was more believeable). Will was the MUCH better rapper though.

    • RedStorm

      Will, Puffy, Jay Z. All clowns. All business men.

      • Robert

        Hold on now. Jay has had some NICE albums.

        • RedStorm

          Agreed, but not since Best of Both Worlds, MAYBE Black Album. In 2003.

          • Robert

            I really liked American Gangster

          • Dwayne

            Yes! Totally slept on.

          • RedStorm

            I wasn’t a fan but music is in the eye of the listener so I can’t fight you on that. He’s just phony, but he’s a genius when it comes to business. When he realized he wasn’t doing great he makes calabo albums, he bought the nets, started his own sports management agency, and tried to make a profit off of Occupy Wall St.

        • He had one nice album, before anybody was really listening to him. Then he became all about making a buck. He admits this himself on “Moment of Clarity.”

          • Roronoa FunkDoc

            He still had a pretty strong run of albums. Blueprint, Black Album, and American Gangster are all in the ****1/2-***** range. Vol. 2 and Dynasty are solid.

          • I guess. it’s easier to break off and do arthouse projects though when your millions are made and your career is bulletproof.

          • Roronoa FunkDoc

            Jay-Z was always about making a buck. Reasonable Doubt, he was riding the mafioso wave that Biggie, Nas, and Wu-Tang started. It’s just he was unknown so it didn’t hit the mainstream.

          • Yeah but his lyrical/rhyme scheme approach was totally different. His next album he was noticeably slowing things down and using less intricate techniques to appeal more to the mass audience.

          • I’m not knocking it, I’m just saying. He certainly deserves to be labeled a business man over an artist. he would tell you so himself.

      • Dwayne

        Jay does not belong in the same category as the other 2

        • RedStorm

          Agreed. There are levels and he’s not with them but he’s close enough he can smell their farts.

      • Jay’s not a businessman, he’s a business…MAN!

      • Roseanne Marrv – #46

        Found someone whiter than me, yes!

          • RedStorm

    • Puffy’s “You don’t like me because I tell it how it is and you tell it how it might be” is better than anything Will Smith ever said.

      • chicagodem79

        When it comes to impact on the biz, Puffy wins by far (and yes that is a badass line, I have that song in my rotation on my music player today, hope it comes up when I go home today lol)

  • Robert

    “American rapper Vanilla Ice later released a song featuring an interpretation of “Play That Funky Music”. Songwriter Robert Parissi was not credited. Parissi was later awarded $500,000 in a copyright infringement lawsuit.”

    Like, who was the moron who thought that Ice could cover a song and not even acknowledge that it was a cover song?

    • maskedcabana

      How much did he have to pay Queen for “Ice Ice Baby”?

      • I think they were fine with being credited and getting songwriter royalties. I don’t think The Iceman had to pay Queen on the front-end

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        Well, Queen and the estate of David Bowie are still getting paid for that one through royalties

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Seeing how it was originally an underground hip-hop album that was bought wholesale by a huge record company, I’d put more of the blame on the record company for not clearing the sample.

      • tannerfamilyfun92

        It’s not really a sample though, it’s basically a cover of the original song with rapping over it. The title is even the same.

        But yeah, dumb record company move.

  • Ok what’s going on why are we talking about stealing from artists?

    • Vanilla Ice.

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      That’s right, that’s right

    • Jackson Smith

      Uh huh – yeah

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      Because you steal titles.

  • P.K.

    Lunch time in prison

    https://youtu.be/drxLRxpDUUA

  • Wild Wing

    I think I count as a coastal person!

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    Jay-Z has a pretty strong discog. Only two genuine duds – Blueprint 2 and Kingdom Come. And I guess Magna Carta Holy Grail but that’s like docking Ric Flair for the post-2002 years lol.

    • Wild Wing

      I liked “Empire State of Mind.”

    • Dwayne

      Yeah. For 2 decades of work, he has some really good output. More good albums than bad for sure.

    • Robert

      Blueprint 2 had “Meet The Parents”, so I’ll forgive him for the rest of that album

      • ONITA100

        Watcher 2 as well

    • ONITA100

      For as strong as it is, I can only point to Blueprint as his top to bottom classic

      • chicagodem79

        When I think of Jay Z the first album I always think of is the Blueprint

        • ONITA100

          It’s impeccable with like one weak song

  • Facts

    It really saddens me that Kevin Costner stole the idea for Dances With Wolves from the amazing and super talented James Cameron.

    • I’m curious who he “samples” for the next 5 avatar movies

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I thought the South Park episode making fun of it was spot on.

      • Roseanne Marrv – #46

        Me!

      • Facts

        Threes Company

    • Diddly

      Just like that no talent hack George Lucas stole Star Wars from Cameron!

  • Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park = Spectacle main eventers
    American Dad = Workrate main eventer
    Cleveland Show, King of the Hill, Bob’s Burgers = well regarde upper midcarders.

    • Wild Wing

      Futurama is another workrate guy.

      • Ioan Morris

        I never got into that. Worth revisiting, I take it?

        • Wild Wing

          First season is super shaky, but Season 5 is better than the best of he Simpsons.

          • Biscuit Done Died!

            Nah. Futurama was great start to finish, but lets not go crazy.

          • Ioan Morris

            Trying to find out if it’s on any streaming services.

          • Wild Wing

            Netflix.

        • Dr. Bob (Rowlf)

          Yeah, Futurama is fantastic.

        • ONITA100

          Great great show

      • Yes! I shouldn’t have forgotten them.

    • ONITA100

      I’d switch King of the Hill and American Dad

      • Night

        I’d switch KOTH and Family Guy.

    • Night

      Wait…where’s Camp WWE?!!

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      Bob’s Burgers = Puerto Rico territory job guy

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      Sorry, King of the Hill is a workrate main eventer.

      Family Guy is more like the Attitude Era star that was huge years ago and still sticks around and gets courtesy pops. Like Kane.

      • King Of The Hill is Ted DiBiase. Never quite got a world title run, but always gave a good match.

        • tannerfamilyfun92

          Yeah, that works.

        • Diddly

          Could also be considered a Scott Hall if you ignore the booze and drugs

  • Diddly

    Rickyyyyyyy Spanishhhhhhhh

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    Man, remember when the the football season would end and RAW’s ratings would steadily climb til Mania…

  • Dwayne

    As much fun as it is to make fun of Vanilla Ice today, no one was really laughing at him in 1990. Even in the hood they were playing his shit.

    • Dwayne

      Until the In Living Color skit came out.

      • Was that before or after Suge hung him out of the window?

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Way after.

        • Way before. The Suge thing happened in the mid 90’s, long after Color was over

    • Robert

      My cousin got me his tape for Christmas that year. I wanted to kick his ass.

    • Night

      Hammer and Vanilla Ice should tour together.

      • Robert

        With 3rd Bass as the opening act lol

        • Night

          No.

          C+C Music Factory.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          3rd Bass was legit, though. Search is why the world knows Nas and MF DOOM.

      • That’s a thing that probably had to happen some time?

      • DAJackson7

        Fun fact, watched an MLB network doc on the 70’s A’s last night and Hammer narrated it

        • Dwayne

          He was a bat boy for them

          • DAJackson7

            He was also snitch for Charley Finley and actually was called Vice President for being such a deceitful bastard

          • Finley ended up being a distributor for MC Hammer in Europe, IIRC.

          • DAJackson7

            Hahaha, that’s starting to sound like a Patterson Push

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      I was. With that fucking Miami Hurricanes sweater and shit… Fucking dork.

    • Scottyflamingo

      It is amazing that it ever got over when you go back and look at the guy. But then Hammer looked like a fool too. Ice Ice Baby is a damn strong song though.

  • Wild Wing

    The dog and bee episodes and the Robot Devils Hands episode of Futurama are better than anything The Simpsons did.

    • DAJackson7

      “The Devils Hands are Idle Playthings” and the one with the intestinal worms are my favorites

      • Night

        I like the one where Fry becomes an emperor.

        “Gasp! You DRANK our emperor!!!”

        • Diddly

          The Roswell episode where Fry discovers he is his own grandfather is good too

          • DAJackson7

            The bit with the appliance salesman telling Leela that the stove could give her a place to soak her feet gets brought up in my house more than it should

    • Night

      Futurama is great but nothing they did ever topped the Hank Scorpio episode.

      • DAJackson7

        “Awe the Denver Broncos….” killed me since i was Broncos fan even then

        • Night

          And they won the Super Bowl the next year! I firmly believe that bit motivated them not to be a joke anymore!

    • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

      Futurama’s first run is probably my pick for best of the adult cartoons.

      Or it was before Rick and Morty burst on the scene.

  • Facts

    I like The Critic.

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Duckman is better than any cartoon mentioned here today.

      • Night

        Yeah, okay, Marv.

      • … get off Marv’s account, Duck.

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      That was a great show.

      • Diddly

        IT STINKS, IT STINKS, IT STINKS!

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Should I watch Madrid vs Napoli or Bayern vs Arsenal?

    • Ioan Morris

      I’d watch Bayern/Arsenal. But then, I kinda wanna see how Bale does if he plays.

    • TatR!

      Seeing Arsenal get a beating is always fun but Madrid/Napoli should be a great game. I’m gonna keep an eye on both

      • TatR!

        such a non-answer I shouldn’t really have even bothered commenting

  • chicagodem79

    Was MC Hammer ever not lame? Even as a kid I thought he sucked lol.

    • ONITA100

      Can’t Touch This is still legendary I think

      • chicagodem79

        I was probably strongly influenced by my brother, he “really” hated MC Hammer.

      • Scottyflamingo

        It really isn’t. It is basically Superfreak with average rapping over it. It was the beginning of using more than just a small sample from a song.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          No, it wasn’t. People had been using samples as entire songs since the very beginning.

      • Robert

        I have hated that song since the first time I heard it. Kids today still think it’s funny to say “can’t touch this” and then do a shitty rendition of the music

    • Napoleon Blownapart
    • Biscuit Done Died!

      They do what they wanna do
      Say what they wanna say
      Live how they wanna live
      Play how they wanna play

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      I was exactly as into him as any sheltered white kid should have been. Meaning I *loved* him woooah-ooh-oooh—ooooh, woh! woh! woh!

    • Robert

      His first album was pretty good. Then he went 100% pop and it was downhill from there.

    • Bones

      Did black people look at him and think what in the ever loving fuck is this cornball shit?

      • Robert

        Yes. Shucking, jiving, and cheesing for the white folks.

        • Biscuit Done Died!

          (puts on BKs and shuffles)

      • chicagodem79

        That was my brother’s thoughts exactly lol.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      His first 2 albums were dope. (Feel My Power and Let’s Get It Started)

      • Robert

        Never heard Feel My Power, but I liked Let’s Get It Started

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Feel My Power is fun.

      • Biscuit Done Died!

        Nerd.

    • Basscase

      Hammer was great for his time. Then he tried “2 Legit 2 Quit” and “Hammerman!” and, well…

      • Roseanne Marrv – #46

        In grade school we tried to rhyme other words with his songs, I remember specifically the line “2 legit-imate, 2 legit-imate to quit-ament, junior mints, light bulbs have filaments”

        • Basscase

          That’s so dumb it gets a +1.

          Hey, that rhymed.

          • Roseanne Marrv – #46

            We were in like fourth grade lol

      • Hammer was decent enough to voice Hammerman himself!

    • Hammer always sucked. He was good for energy and dance moves but his songs got boring 45 seconds in.

    • Remember when they repackaged him?

  • Biscuit Done Died!

    I’ve got a brother named Billy
    And my teeth look silly, get down y’all

    • Diddly

      Coming up: Was the dream really over?

      Yes it was.

      Or was it?

  • Robert

    You stole somebody’s record and you looped it, you looped it

  • Facts

    Also like Rockos Modern Life. So many hidden adult things on that program.

    • ONITA100

      Sooo many. Rocko going to a carnival and a slug working at the carnival reading PlaySlug magazine. Rocko working for a sex hotline. Heffer going to Hell.

      I haven’t even gotten started I’m sure

  • TatR!

    What are everyones Top 5 Vanilla Ice songs?

    • Basscase

      The ones that aren’t played.

      • Scottyflamingo

        *Tips Fedora*

    • Hayden

      You want us to narrow it down that much?!?

    • Ice Ice Baby
      Play that Funky Music
      Too Cold
      uhhhhh….I Love You
      …..Ice Ice Baby again

      • TatR!

        This is an amazing effort, well done.

    • Napoleon Blownapart
    • Dwayne

      I can’t name that many

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      He had 5 songs?

    • Night

      Ninja Rap and then all the rest.

    • chicagodem79

      I honestly couldn’t name more than 2 Vanilla Ice songs

  • Ioan Morris

    Why is it so hard to find out which shows are on which streaming services?

    • Miko363

      It’s a trick to get you to sign up for 50 different services.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      The streaming services don’t want you to know what they don’t have. They want you to watch what they do have.

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      On the Roku there’s a search function that does that. It’s even clickable to take you directly to it, or prompt you to install the service that does.

  • Miko363

    I believe in my CD collection I still have a copy of Hard to Swallow, Vanilla Ice’s late 90s foray into rap-metal.

    • DAJackson7

      Is it better than Macho Man’s rap album?

      • Miko363

        There was more gratuitous cursing. But it didn’t have “The Perfect Friend.” Tough call.

        • DAJackson7

          We should really do a live listen of the Macho Man’s album one day just for fun

    • TatR!

      He made loads of albums I think

  • Facts

    Go Ninja Go Ninja Go!

    • Basscase

      That, along with “Yo Baby Yo Baby Yo!”, is considered a felony in 18 states.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        He’s FAT!

  • Wild Wing

    I think we all lost sight of what’s really important here:

    Getting Jiggy With It is a great song.

    • Ioan Morris

      Big Willy always fills the dance floor.

    • chicagodem79

      Stop it lol

      • chicagodem79

        Edit, I will say, it’s a fun song for kids, so it has some redeeming value.

    • Diddly

      In college I had to write a paper about Hills Like White Elephants and titled it “Getting Jig-gy With It”

  • jobber123

    I’ve been watching a ton of old 80’s and 90’s cartoons lately and you know what? The Gummi bears is a 99/100. Best Disney cartoon series ever. It’s legit funny, and well written, and has interesting stories. I was thinking I’d check out a few and move on but it’s awesome and i watched all six seasons.

    • Dwayne

      Darkwing Duck

      • Night

        Let’s Get Dangerous!

    • Ioan Morris

      Rugrats is still enjoyable. Mostly nostalgia I’m sure.

    • Basscase

      Plus it has Peter Venkman/Gardfield’s voice.

      Real Ghostbusters is still a classic, btw – at least the ones before Dave Colier.

      • Scottyflamingo

        Even as a kid I couldn’t get past none of them looking like the real guys. And them being friends with Slimer.

        • Basscase

          You should check out IDW’s run – the RGB meet up with the movie Ghostbusters. It’s surprisingly well-written.

          • Scottyflamingo

            IDW does some interesting stuff

          • Basscase

            Their Transformers line is great.

    • Scottyflamingo

      Gummi Bears is damn good and I am really surprised they have not gone to it for the live action treatment. It is basically LOTR geared towards a younger audience.

  • jobber123

    Also Mr. T mysteries is way better than you’d expect.

    • Basscase

      Do a crossover with Mike Tyson Mysteries.

      SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

    It really doesn’t, CNN

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      It begins with i

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      Most innovation results from necessity.

  • Robert

    Remember when Hammer became a thug and released Pumps and a Bump and It’s All Good?

    • Dwayne

      Yup. He was going at Redman and Def Squad too.

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      I enjoyed the videos.

      • Robert

        So did the ladies, especially Pumps and a Bump with Hammer in the Speedo.

    • Without Hammer, It’s All Good wouldn’t be in our lexicon!

      It’s hard to believe that Hammer had 3 consecutive albums that had an immortal phrase still used today:

      Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Them: Stop! Hammertime!
      Too Legit To Quit: Too Legit to quit
      The Funky Headhunter: It’s All Good

    • Dwayne

      What’s funny is Hammer is really well respected in Oakland. Like you can’t shit on him and go out there with no problems.

  • Kenny_Reigns

    Sooooo many bad hip-hop takes….wow.

    • Dwayne

      Come on, like that’s really surprising. You know what kinda people post here?

      • Kenny_Reigns

        I know, right? It’s just funny to see so many misconceptions and bad opinions in one place.

        • Glenn_Frogington_The_3rd

          Really?

          We see them about wrestling everyday! 😀

      • Biscuit Done Died!

        White people. Very, very white people.

        • DAJackson7

          True, i have never owned a rap or hip hop album in my life

    • Night

      I know! No one’s even mentioned the lyrical stylings of Skee-Lo!

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      motherfuckers is corny

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      Yeah, you’ve had plenty.

    • Robert

      Such as?

    • Scottyflamingo

      Shut up Kenny. We can’t all be writers for Vibe.

    • P.K.
    • Wild Wing

      I know, right?

  • Regular Lays: Bleh.

    Lightly Salted Lays: Surprisingly good.

    Closing on my first house today!! Another step in the most hectic process I have ever experienced.

    Now to get the place painted…moving truck….fix up the place….get cable in….

    Never ending….

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Then after all that you have to keep people off your lawn. It’s endless.

      • ONITA100

        Neighbors on both sides with a thousand kids. Can’t wait

    • Scottyflamingo

      Dude! I closed on mine yesterday!

      • ONITA100

        Really!? Sweet

        • Scottyflamingo

          Yeah. Only thing I ever got out of Valentine’s Day.

          • ONITA100

            Pretty major though

          • Scottyflamingo

            True true

    • chicagodem79

      As someone who just helped in that process, my greatest advice is to be ready for stuff to fuck up despite best laid plans lol.

      • ONITA100

        Yea that is going to be a rude awakening. No more landlord to fall on and take the hit when my garage breaks or fridge dies

        • chicagodem79

          I had a friend who just bought a house….not more than 2 weeks in, she finds out the dishwasher leaks, and couldn’t be fixed for a reasonable price, so she had to buy a new one.

          • DAJackson7

            She should know if she was leaking before she washed dishes….Amiright!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      Buy the warranty.

  • Once upon a time, I had a video series talking about forgotten top 40 songs and an overview of the artist. I talked both Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer at one point.

    Sadly, the site that hosted those videos went down and I never bothered to re-upload them….

  • Facts

    I like listening to Eminem, 2-Pac and N.W.A.

  • Biscuit Done Died!

    “Cool As Ice” was a bad film.

    • Basscase

      That’s like saying the Atlantic Ocean is kinda wet.

    Favourite 5 Futurama episodes:

    War Is The H Word
    Parasites Lost
    Where No Fan Has Gone Before
    Fry And The Slurm Factory

    • Wild Wing

      Devils Hands!

    • DAJackson7

      The last two i’m not big fans of. Would replace them with both Robot Devil episodes

    • JosephM

      I see no “Jurassic Bark”, but I can understand why that episode would not be a ‘favourite’.

      That poor poor dog.

    • ONITA100

      I LOVE ‘Luck of the Fryish’. I’d throw that in mine. That ending.

    How is everyone doing in a post-JeriKO world. It feels like I’m in a daze. Am I dreaming? Was I ever really awake.

  • The Rabid One

    Couple of funny notes of news

    Trump went off on the media abusing poor Flynn Facts. He was treated so unfairly.

    In turn the Democrats, Pelosi, went off on Flynn’s tweets, calling himself a scape goat. This tweet was reported by the Pulitzer winning NY Times. However, they found out that the tweets came from a parody account.

    Then American Airlines 5320 hit a deer while taking off from Charlotte Airport.

    Top it all off Lindsey Lohan is telling us to support Donald Trump.

    We’re all screwed.

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      That poor deer.

      • Scottyflamingo

        It happens. Wide open space. In ATL they hire game officers to come in the middle of then night to take out some dear or it would happen all the time.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      “In turn the Democrats, Pelosi, went off on Flynn’s tweets, calling
      himself a scape goat. This tweet was reported by the Pulitzer winning NY

      And again, people wonder why there are huge sections of the country that don’t trust traditional media.

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    Reasonable Doubt – *****
    In My Lifetime – ***1/4. This album’s all over the place. Jay was having an identity crisis so it has some of his best songs ever along with his absolute worst.
    Hard Knock Life – ***3/4. I don’t really like the late 90s NY sound in general but this is definitely the best execution of it behind It’s Dark & Hell is Hot. So if somebody wants to declare it a classic, I won’t argue too much.
    Vol. 3 – ***1/2
    Dynasty – ***1/2
    Blueprint – *****
    BP2 – **1/2
    Black Album – ****1/2
    Kingdom Come – **1/2
    American Gangster – ****1/4
    BP3 – ***1/2. The Timbaland tracks really drag this down.
    MCHG – **

    • Dwayne

      I can’t argue too much at all. I think your taste is pretty similar to mine.

      • Robert

        Same here

    • You’re right, Jay’s catalog speaks for itself. I’m just a hater because he annoys me on a personal level.

    • Also the Collision Course deal with Linkin Park was, in and of itself, a great album.

    Everyone talks about Jurassic Bark, but I found Luck of the Fry-rish to be the better “sad” Futurama episode.

    • DAJackson7

      Agreed

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      I liked the Globetrotter episode.

    • Diddly

      Wisconsin won the Rose Bowl, 17-9!

    • Bruce Chung

      Luck of the Fry-ish is probably my favorite episode.

      Parasites Lost is probably my second favorite.

      So that’s where Jeff is. I guess there’s a new drug grab bag codename than “ordered extra biscuits” now.

    • Good marketing! There is probably a decent amount of crossover business between Domino’s customers and pill junkies.

    So didn’t get laid last night. My girlfriend thinking she could take NyQuil at 8pm and NOT fall asleep immediately was a highlight…sigh…

      You’re STROKIN!

      • ONITA100

        You’re correct

    Ran into my cousin yesterday. Not the one I’d shoot on site, his sister.

    “That’s your cousin?”
    “Yep. Same last name and everything.”
    “She’s pretty hot.”
    “I guess. Never really thought of it that way, with the exception of my mother and my niece I got no fucking use for chicks I can’t dick down.”
    “So I can get her number? Like, if I hit her off we ain’t gonna have no beef?”
    “Nah, go for it man, I don’t give a fuck.”

    • TatR!

      Is this you and the cousin talking? Is it just you talking? I’m confused.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        As long as they’re not blood cousins, it’s in bounds.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          We are.

          Kind of a shame, she’s really pretty.

            I’m from Buffalo, not Kentucky, I don’t roll like that.

          I remember my family went to Mexico for the holidays. Me and my cousin were chillin outside and a pair of fine looking ladies walked down the street…..only for our uncle to step in and say they’re actually our cousins 4 times removed or something.
          I don’t care how much removed they are, that’s still icky

    Another highlight from Valentines Day. Taking a physical for a new job and the doctor telling me I pissed hot for Meth. That’s nice.

    Second piss showed I’m clean and his system is fucked. But fucking seriously. He goes “I mean…you don’t LOOK LIKE A METH HEAD…”

    • chicagodem79

      So I wonder how many other people got screwed because this guy’s system is fucked….

      • ONITA100

      You were probably the first guy that did not look like a Meth head and he’s damn let me double check this piece of shit.

    ESPN fires tennis commentator Doug Adler for using the term “guerilla” in describing the play of Venus Williams.

    Social justice warriors claim another victim. Watch what you say when people are only half-listening.

    • Biscuit Done Died!

      You’re on thin ice, foreigner.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      It is an interesting case, because I understand ESPN and people watching thinking he said “gorilla” (and the Williams sisters still get their fair share of racism in tennis circles) but on the other hand, he’s provided some examples of “guerilla” being used as a tennis term. It’ll be interesting to see how that lawsuit he just filed plays out.

      • RedStorm

        No one was even outraged. It was ONE guy on twitter who even admitted he knew what he meant, but didn’t like the guy. He kept persisting and made it a story.

        • chicagodem79

          Yeah, I mean if the guy had a history saying racist stuff, I’d be less tolerant of it, but it doesn’t sound like it at all, I think the guy being fired was too much.

          • RedStorm

            He had been doing it on ESPN since 2008 and had never had an incident before that.

          • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

            Yeah, and I know racism is pretty persistent these days in MAGA America, but that would be bold by anyone’s standards to go that way on TV in a sports broadcast. It wasn’t like he said “she’s powerful like a gorilla” or called her a silverback, I can see “guerilla” being used as a term for aggressive tactics in tennis, that makes sense.

          • RedStorm

            If only we had the closed captioning on. Then we could truly find out which spelling he meant.

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from conseq….hahaha, I couldn’t get through it

    • ONITA100

      God….

    • RedStorm

      Most of the people complaining about it or defending ESPN probably just want to drink the Williams’ sisters piss anyway. I’m reading the comments on Deadspin and they’re hilarious.
      “He didn’t mean guerilla, that’s cowardly warfare. Running and hiding. He meant gorilla, like aggressive and gorilla is a racist term for black people.”

    I went online to get tickets to bring the family to Paw Patrol Live in March. Paw Patrol is the current Nick Jr. show all the kids love and the toys cost a fortune. 4 seats way back in the balcony, middle of the row: $220.

    • tannerfamilyfun92

      The funny part is that there’s no indication that Kid Rock is even remotely interested. It’s just like, “Sure, let’s find a right-leaning celebrity in Michigan to run. Hey, how about Kid Rock?”

    • ONITA100

      Kid Rock is a treasure in Michigan

      • Biscuit Done Died!

        That’s a very mean thing to say about Michigan.

      When I worked at Cisco in the late 90s, I had the chance to meet Nancy Cartwright. I was a huge Simpsons fan at the time, but didn’t end up meeting her because it would have wigged me out too much hearing Bart’s voice coming out of her head.

          • ONITA100

            Yea and they get with her as if she’s a prize, when she’s always been the least attractive sister

          • Dwayne

            By far. She has a manly face.

          • chicagodem79

            Any NBA dude that gets with her totally deserves anything negative that happens in their career. They KNOW this to be the case, but yet she still keeps pulling them off one by one lol.

          • Robert

            Same goes for Kim, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, etc. Everybody’s heard the stories. They know these women are crazy and can’t stay still for long. But they still go after them, and end up in the same place every other dude who fucked with them ended up.

      • chicagodem79

        Eh, the problem is you know she would talk about it on social media, and then you’re harrassed forever lol.

  • If these 2 minutes from The Lego Batman Movie don’t convince you to go see it immediately, then WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?

    (Bit spoilery, but it’s early into the movie. AND IT’S AWESOME.)

    • RedStorm

      Best movie I’ve seen in years.

      • It’ll take a few more rewatches, but I honestly think it’s my favourite Bat-film of all time. The Dark Knight is great, don’t get me wrong, but goddamn this is so much FUN.

        • RedStorm

          It’s definitely my favorite “kids movie”. It leapt over Up and Toy Story 2.

          • Oh man, I don’t know if it tops my kids movies. So many great ones already on that list. Iron Giant and Incredibles alone probably go over it. Lot of great competition.

          • RedStorm

            I was actually blown away at how many good to great movies Disney put out between 1988 and like 1998. They were on a damn roll.

          • God, yes. That was unquestionably their golden age.

    • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

      It was good. ****

      • I’d probably squeeze it up to a ****1/2. My only criticism is I kinda wish the villains later on were also from the DCU and not mixed from other properties and IPs. Fun as hell to see them interact with Batman (never thought I’d want to see him punch a you-know-what, but goddamn it was awesome). But why make a big deal mentioning Zod and then not use him? Kinda hoped we would’ve seen some of Superman’s biggest threats, because that would’ve been fun.

        • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

          I’ll be honest: the final act felt unfocused to me. I liked the villains but felt they didn’t really do anything with them. I think it’d have been funnier if they unleashed them, then revealed who some of them were. As it was the movie was starting to feel long before the end. A few surprises would have gone a long way there.

          The first half, though, was just amazing for its Batman fan service and sense of humor. It’s that last half hour that kept the movie from being GOAT for me.

          • Yeah, I’d agree with that. Still a LOT of fun and it holds up as a whole, but the final fight didn’t even come close to those 2 minutes I posted.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      Maybe because I don’t remotely give a shit about anything involving comic books?

      • In other words, you don’t like fun.

        • Matthew Maynard Adams

          Oh fuck you man. This is the same thing people say when I shit on the Young Bucks.

          I will see it at some point, but it’s not a priority at the moment.

          • I just don’t get why you’re so EMPHATICALLY against comic book stuff.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I’m not. More EMPHATICALLY totally apathetic.

            I don’t HATE comic stuff, I just don’t fucking remotely care.

          • I’m not sure if you can be emphatically apathetic. =p

      That’s a good list. Mos Def had me on that first album but he kinda went on some other shit after that.

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        I’ve never heard an Eric B and Rakim song.

        Right now I’m listening to NOFX.

        • RedStorm

          They’re actually pretty close. Just about the same.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            I somehow doubt that very much.

          • RedStorm

            Haha alright you got me there

          Rakim’s flow is pretty timeless.

      That is solid. What do you think of Kendrick Lamar? I wouldn’t put him on that list but you’ve got some damn good taste.

      • ONITA100

        Me personally I stopped caring about him after his last album.

        • RedStorm

          It was….different haha

      • “No Way Jose” Gomez

        Honestly I’m coming around. Dude could spit fire.

        • RedStorm

          He really can. A lot of his stuff is a weird fusion. Like his album is all over. From spoken word to straight rap to dance music. It’s a weird mix.

    • Dwayne

      That should be fun.

      • I’m curious to hear his newer stuff, too. When I saw him in 2004, he wasn’t too far removed from his big hits, so he was basically playing all of the stuff I knew. Haven’t kept up with him the past 10 years or so, hopefully I’m in for a treat.

        • Dwayne

          Yeah. I’m sure he’s done a bunch of new stuff since but I wouldn’t know it.

      He’s dope. Simon Says is going to ROCK live…

    I find that any hip hop I like generally doesn’t have mainstream appeal. A Tribe Called Quest was/is the GOAT. Gang Starr….Black Sheep. Alt hip hop….stuff that has jazz roots.

    • Dwayne

      I was heavy into underground stuff since the 90s but alot of that stuff became mainstream too. Now the underground is where most of the stuff I care about comes from.

      NOT BATMAN!!!

      Probably my favorite DC-related movie of all time now

  • Since we have a lot of the BoD hip hop heads here right now, I would love some feedback/criticism on this political track I put out recently: http://www.shawnmicskills.com Be brutally honest, I can take it.

    • Dwayne

      I’ll try it later since i’m at work.

    • RedStorm

      You should change the thumbnail image to a woman with a firebreathing dragon coming out of her vagina. Also, I’ll listen to it when I get out of work

      • LOL, duly noted.

        • RedStorm

          Glad I could assist your artistic journey.

    • ONITA100

      I like it. Gives me kind of Immortal Technique feels

      • Thanks man. Yeah I love Immortal tech. I heard him doing spoken word recently on this political podcast my girlfriend listens to. I was happy to see he is still active. I had a big phase with him in college and then didn’t really keep up with him.

    • P.K.

      What’s this?

    • I like the beat and I like your flow. The lyrics don’t really move me though, It kind of reminds me of Immortal Technique, and I’ve never been able to get into him for much that reason. Have you heard of Akala? I feel like you might like him.

      • No but I’ll check him out. I’m always looking for new music, thanks.

    • P.K.

      Good beat but I would’ve preferred more positive lyrics about President Trumo

      • Hey, I never addressed him by name…. but if the shoe fits… haha

  • The Rabid One

    They have a picture of the assassin that killed Kim Jung Un’s half brother. She wore a shirt that says, LOL. Which is basically 2017 in a nut shell.

  • Wild Wing

    I had no idea Mike Posner wrote “Sugar.”

    That’s a legit great song!

    • Posner writes a lot of stuff. He’s more successful as a writer than a singer

      • Brian_Bayless

        His voice is terrible.

        • My buddy hates his voice, too. Girls love it, because he has that whispy/raspy deal going.

      • He wrote “Boyfriend” for Justin Bieber, too. Which was actually not a bad song.

    • “Sugar” by whom?

  • Robert

    I bet Duck loves Sugar Ray’s “Fly”

    • Wild Wing

      That’s a good song, but “Every Morning” is better.

      • Roseanne Marrv – #46

        Yep.

        Shut the door baby, don’t say a word.

    • Stranger In the Alps

      I find that his comment was meant to disparage a good-time song.

    • Matthew Maynard Adams

      If he wasn’t a complete moron he’d love “Ten Seconds Down”.

  • Andrew Champagne

    “The Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground is a great song.

    • ONITA100

      Ladies love it

      • Andrew Champagne

        I saw a guy even whiter than me do karaoke of that song in Vegas on my first trip there. It was special.

  • ONITA100

    What’s the status on Danimal? I haven’t seen him post since I think mid November and it’s looks like his site is down.

    I asked this yesterday, but don’t feel like digging try disqus comments

    • Wild Wing

      He retreated from public life and only is available through the Snapchat medium now.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        So he hasn’t retreated from public life?

    • Those RAW reviews broke him.

      • Diddly

      • chicagodem79

        I don’t know how Bayless continues to do it lol.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      It’s all Marv’s fault, like most things.

    • Diddly

      He posts at NPP

      • ONITA100

        Of course.

      • P.K.

        I don’t blame him for going over there to get away from the skinny annoying queèr

        • Matt_Indeed.

          That’s mean. You’re mean.

          • P.K.

            Danimal didn’t leave because of me….So I ain’t the mean/queèr one

      Seemed like the stress of reviewing Raw and being a new father (that was him, right?) was really weighing on him.

    • Dwayne

      He’s good. Doing what he does.

    • P.K.

      Danimal was cool

  • Roseanne Marrv – #46

    I think it was only, three minutes or so into Lego Batman when I knew I was in love with the movie, “Like the two boats?”

    • “And what about the parade with the Prince song.”

      I cracked up so hard at that one. I bet there were tons of references and fan service that I missed because good lord, they came hard and fast.

      • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

        Realizing it was set in a universe where all 78 years of Batman history was somehow canon & acknowledged made me grin like a Cheshire Cat.

        • I’m REALLY surprised they didn’t find a way to squeeze in Ace the Bathound and Mogo the Bat-Ape.

    • Big D Wangston

      I love the little jokes too. Like the pilot that needs to check the back of the plane. “Well, im a loser at home and a loser at work.”

  • Matthew Maynard Adams

    Just to be clear, I don’t hate comics. I hate TNA, and republicans, and mustard.

    Comics? Meh…

    • Think we had this conversation before, but we just gotta find you some comics that would interest you. Just like every other entertainment medium, there’s plenty of variety.

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      I read this in Dee Reynolds’ voice

    • Diddly

      Don’t you also hate your job? And people at your job? And cockblockers?

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        I don’t hate the people at my job, in fact I really like them, which is a big reason WHY I’m about to go all CM Punk and split.

        And yeah, I hate cockblockers, but doesn’t everyone?

    • Robert

      Mustard? You beast.

    • Hayden

      And Miz!

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        Yep. The Hardys and Cena too.

    • ONITA100

      Replace republicans with Liberals and we are a mirror image. Are we brothers!?

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        Bro, you’re 5-0. We are not brothers.

        • ONITA100

          5-0 isn’t the enemy, BROTHER

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            From my experience, yeah, you are. Very much so.

        • Wild Wing

          lmao

        • Roseanne Marrv – #46

          Hey! I know what this means from The Wire!

          • ONITA100

            The Wire? Iv never seen it.

          • Roseanne Marrv – #46

            I think you’d dig it, maybe for all the wrong reasons Serpico hahaha

    • Just to be clear, I’m not bothered that you don’t like comics. I think it’s just the way your approach to the subject. Almost everyone here talks about sports, but I don’t make it sound like I’m trying to shut down the conversation. I’ll make jokes like “GO SPORTS TEAM!” or something, but that’s it.

      • Ugh, I worded that harsher than I intended.

      • Dwayne

        I get very offended when you say “GO SPORTS TEAM!”

      • Matthew Maynard Adams

        I also like to rile people up.

        I never meant to offend anyone (Besides the NNP clowns) personally, I just like to talk shit.

        BTW, fuck the Red Wings.

        • I get that. Just kinda wish you wouldn’t make your opinions so dismissively, you know?

          Also, FUCK SPORTS TEAMS.

          • Matthew Maynard Adams

            Well, the whole point of talking shit is to be an ass, ya know?

          • Never been of fan of being like that, myself. Not intentionally, anyway. Too much history dealing with bullies and assholes myself, I guess.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    I miss Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Saw Maggie’s Plan last night with sweet sweet Greta Gerwig. It was very good

    • Diddly

      *googles Greta Gerwig*

      Hello!

      • TatR!

        You didn’t know Greta!

  • ONITA100

    Very pleased to see John Wick 2 getting good ratings. If only my girlfriend wasent such a douchebag that only watched rom-coms…

    • I saw it last night. It was fucking awesome, right on par with the first one. Hell, even better because they used practical blood spatter effects this time instead of CG blood.

      Whenever you see it, though, you will hate the ending because you’ll be frothing at the mouth for a sequel.

      • ONITA100

        Ahhhhhhhhhh Why am I not watching it right now…

    • Andrew Champagne

      My ex was the same way. I sat through 10 minutes of “Twilight,” yelled, “THEY CAN’T ACT!,” and that got me out of ever seeing such a movie with her ever again. Unsurprisingly, we also broke up a few months later.

  • Robert

    This place has been great today

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Truly just some HoF posts from all angles

  • ONITA100

    I need an outside opinion. Is it…odd, that my girlfriend has kind of an issue that I’m hanging out and becoming friends with another girl? Who happens to be a butch lesbian? Shouldn’t that just make it okay?

    • chicagodem79

      Really shouldn’t be an issue, whether she’s a Butch Lesbian or not.

      • ONITA100

        Well if I was hanging out with a girl who was into men, I could understand her issue

        • chicagodem79

          Well, if you’re hanging out with her and not telling her or including her at times, then I could see it.

    • It’s a bit odd that she’d feel threatened by that. Have you made it blatantly clear that the gal is a butch lesbian? Or has your gal met her?

      Some women be weird, yo.

      • ONITA100

        She hasent met her. There is zero sexual attraction with us, I don’t understand her issue.

        • Nor should there be if she’s a full 100% lesbian. Bi, that’s a different story.

          • ONITA100

            Exactly

    • Roseanne Marrv – #46

      Women don’t trust women, ever.

      • Mick

        Yup. Doesn’t matter how platonic, don’t be friends with another woman while dating or married. Can’t happen

        • Roseanne Marrv – #46

          And really who wants to? Yeah come over platonic chick friend, let’s talk…baseball? Bleh

      • Bones

        Oh god yes. It was like that for any one of the long line of Bonitas. They only friends that are female that they MIGHT be cool with are their female friends and if they’re married.

        • Roseanne Marrv – #46

          And even the ones they are friends with there’s always one of them that all the rest are currently talking shit about. It goes in a circle lol

      • chicagodem79

        Yeah that is true, and is a potential fly in the ointment lol. You just have to hope your woman is cool enough not to let it be an issue (but she’ll never completely trust them though)

      • DAJackson7

        My woman doesn’t like the chicks i’m friends with, and she was friends with them before she met me!

        • Roseanne Marrv – #46

          Jesus, that’s inception shit lol

      • Robert

        Women can have 200 gay male friends and we aren’t supposed to say shit about it.

        • Roseanne Marrv – #46

          Those are the people to make friends with though. They’ll tell you the shit going on behind your back, the other women will not.

          • Robert

            This is true.

        • ONITA100

          THIS!!! My girlfriend is tight with a super fruity gay guy and I have absolutely no problem with them hanging out and I really like him

    • Robert

      Let your woman meet this new friend. That should help smooth it out.

      • ONITA100

        I need to do that

      • Mick

        Nope. That doesn’t work either. Only women you can know and be friends with are your girlfriend/wife’s friends.

        • ONITA100

          Lol true

    • Dwayne

      Just introduce them.

    • P.K.

      I sense a 3some in the works…

      • ONITA100

        Never

    • TatR!

      is your girlfriend also a butch lesbian, are you a butch lesbian

      • ONITA100

        No and no. I mean she’s really pretty, and my girlfriend has seen pictures of her, which might be the issue

        • TatR!

          these are, i presume, naked pictures of this girl that are on your phone?

          I am such a great detective I get to the meat of matters

          • Night

            I think this whole thing became a farce when Onita claimed to have a girlfriend.

          • ONITA100

            Yes it’s impossible for a good looking, tall, built white guy to find a compatible mate in this America

          • Night

            Please. You’re a smark on a wrestling blog. The only time someone calls you good-looking, tall and well-built is when it comes from your mom when she goes to the mall with you to buy corduroy trousers.

          • ONITA100

            I forgot we are all in one big giant room talking face to face and not on an anonymous wrestling blog. Thanks for bringing me down to reality

          • Night

            You’re welcome, son.

        • Robert

          Has this butch lesbian ever taken a dick, to your knowledge? If so, your woman will be able to sniff that out.

          • ONITA100

            Yes

      • P.K.

        His avatar kinda looks like a butch lesbian
