Highspots Releases Newest Installment of the Old School Series

Hosted by Steve Corino, he welcomes guests Ivan Koloff, Kevin Sullivan, and Baby Doll as they discuss Dusty Rhodes. You can view the trailer below:

  • Ioan Morris

    Just read the news about TNA officials talking to ITV about being involved with World of Sport. Interesting times.

    • Ooh, please put all the “Needs to be Old Yellered” promotions in one place. Easier to ignore that way.

      • Ioan Morris

        Supposedly they’re talking to Konnan’s new promotion too.

        • Wild Wing

          Hardys already won their tag titles.

  • Facts

    Yes Kurt Angle!

  • “The plan now is that Angle will at least be doing some wrestling for the WWE. He will have to pass a physical first…”

    So in other words, he WON’T be wrestling.

    • Brian_Bayless

      I bet they hide him in six man matches or he wrestles someone like AJ who will do 95% of the work. He is wrestling overseas now anyway

      • I just don’t see him passing a WWE physical, unless it’s a ‘worked’ physical to some extent.

        • Brian_Bayless

          He wrestled Cody Rhodes this past Fall and he really doesnt work a tough style anymore. Its pretty basic and if he does that he’ll be fine.

          Meltzer seems like he does not want to see him wrestle at all, really. I kinda agree but if he’s against Ziggler or someone else who works really light he should be fine.

          • Stan Ford

            I don’t see them wasting Kurt Angle on perennial nobody and forever midcard Dolph Ziggler.

            Then again, I don’t see him wrestling for the WWE again period. This smells off.

          • I just don’t want to see Angle ruined by the current WWE machine. He could maybe work as RAW GM with Stephanie, but even then I feel like the overly scripted nature would kill him. I’d rather just remember Kurt for being awesome than learning to hate him like Foley, Flair, Bret, etc.

          • Wild Wing

            He’s openly stated that all of his best work was off of scripts and that he is not a fan of improv promos.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            There’s nothing wrong with good scripts. The Rock mostly worked off good scripts and he was great!

          • Wild Wing

            He worked to learn how to deliver lines.

            That’s a much better skill than improving promos.

        • itwastyped

          If Goldberg can pass his physical and keeps tripping over/getting blown up, Angle has a chance

  • zahidf

    So, I assume Kurt vs Seth Rollins?

    • Ioan Morris

      Or noted injurer of opponents Samoa Joe.

  • WWF1987

    Which brand is the better fit for Angle?

    RAW

    Matches vs. Rusev, Rollins, Owens, , Joe, Reigns, Cesaro, Zayn, Strowman, Goldberg, Lesnar, Jericho

    SmackDown

    Matches vs. Wyatt, Styles, Orton, Cena, Harper, Ziggler, Miz, Ambrose, Corbin, American Alpha

    I’d say RAW has the edge by a small margin, but I’d personally rather see him on Smackdown.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Angle vs. Ziggler could work. Ziggler works light.

      • Ioan Morris

        Lawler: No he doesn’t

        • Night

          That’s because Lawler was hitting on Dolph’s nine-year-old niece when she was visiting backstage.

          • Doctor Funkopolis

            That’s fucking offensive.

            No way Lawler hits on some nine year old, he isn’t a grave robbing granny chaser.

          • zahidf

            Hey. She said she was 15

  • Facts

    On this day in 1923, in Thebes, Egypt, English archaeologist Howard Carter enters the
    sealed burial chamber of the ancient Egyptian ruler King Tutankhamen.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Now that’s a Fact!

    • Diddly

      FAKE NEWS

    • Do You Care: On this day in 1804, Stephen Decatur led a raid to burn the captured USS Philadelphia in Tripoli. The act was hailed by none other than Lord Horatio Nelson, who called it “the most bold and daring act of the Age”.

      • You Might Care: On this day in 1933, the Blaine Act was passed, paving the way for the 21st Amendment which ended Prohibition.

        • You Probably Will or Won’t Care: On this day in 2006, the last Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is decommissioned by the U.S. Army. On a related note, M*A*S*H is still the record holder for most watched non-Super Bowl broadcast ever, and the only non-Super Bowl show even in the all-time Top 20.

    • The Polish Hammer

      Ha ha, history is old.

  • Matt_Indeed.

    I love Kurt Angle, but I really don’t need to see him in the ring again.

    • WWF1987

      He could replace Foley as GM once Mick leaves for hip surgery.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Sure, that would be perfect.

      • I’ve been lobbying for Angle as RAW GM since the brand split was announced. He has past experience as GM, so he is qualified in kayfabe, and he has chemistry/history with Stephanie that would create a fun on-screen dynamic.

  • For those of you who miss JeriKO, start tuning in to the BoD promotion! Peyton and Shawn Micskills are picking up right where Jericho and Owens left off with the “disingenuous heels who will inevitably turn on one another” dynamic. It’s really great TV!

  • The Polish Hammer

    Conspiracy theory:Kurt Angle paid off Samoa Joe to take out Seth Rollins so that Rollins wouldn’t be around to injure him in one of his first matches back in WWE.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      But then Joe is still there to injure him, soooo….

  • The champ is here….sorry THE CHAMPS ::looks over at his best friend Shawn::are here!

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Tom Brady is here?

    • Biscuit!

      Poor Nick the Brick.

      • Piers has a good spot. He’s part of the top heel stable in BoD and is likely getting a tag title shot/victory at BoD Fastlane. He’s consistently in the mix at least. I feel bad for the guys who aren’t getting booked at all. Might be time for a brand split soon.

    • TatR!

      I hope your best friend Shawn throws you through a window

    • You know, it feels great to be the first ever two time Million Dollar BoD Champion… but it feels even better to call Peyton my best friend!

  • Devin Harris

    YOU STUPID LITTLE MAN…..

  • Wild Wing

    I don’t understand still hating TNA now that Dixie is out of the picture.

    Shouldn’t we be rooting for competition so that there are places for frustrated guys to jump?

    • WWF1987

      I might watch tonight’s episode with Lashley vs. Barnett.

      • Wild Wing

        That looks really interesting.

    • TatR!

      let’s wait until they fire Josh Matthews

      • Wild Wing

        This is fair.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Dixie was a piece of shit who was cancerous to wrestling.

      • Wild Wing

        Absolutely. But she’s finally gone now.

      • The Polish Hammer

        But I would still bang that cancerous piece of shit.

        • TatR!

          you old honeydripper

          • The Polish Hammer

            I can’t help it. I have a cancerous piece of shit fetish.

      • Night

        That garbage where she hid Russo from Spike was fucking awful.

    • Nope. I’ll happily cheer for any other company, but her stench has forever tainted the company.

  • DAJackson7

    Yay! Cena is leaving!
    Boo-when he gets back he’ll demand a title shot and get it for no reason

    • WWF1987

      He’s earned it.

  • Bones

    So Cena and Jericho are taking off after Mania?

    • TatR!

      Cena’s home planet needs him

      • Night

        Hopefully it blows up like Krypton.

        • DAJackson7

          He’s survive in the Phantom Zone though

          • Night

            He’ll never work in TNA, dude.

      • Mikey

        He will be back to give the Cenation it’s 17th world championship.

        • Bones

          You know it’s happening but when?

          • Brian_Bayless

            WM 34?

          • Bones

            That was my guess to when he’d be done as a full time guy.

            He’s 3/4 time now

          • Knowing Vince they’ll use it to prop up an otherwise meaningless B-show like Backlash.

          • The Polish Hammer

            I’d like to see him win the belt at Mania and pull a Summer of Punk and disappear with it. Except for the part where he comes back after being gone for just a week.

  • Check it out the sideplates for my BoD World title have arrived

    Side Plate 2: http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a40/thejyav/sideplatepapa_1.jpg

  • Matt_Indeed.

    I like Kate Upton’s…uh…..swimsuit?

    • I like her tits.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        So you like her swimsuit too.

        • … not as much. Covers up more than it should.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            Her hands are literally her swimsuit.

          • … you didn’t say that before now. Then yes, her “swimsuit” is fine. Would still be better if they were down by her sides, but you take what you get.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            TGGI.

          • The Polish Hammer

            She brings her own floaties!

    • Mikey

      She’s very controversial on the BoD. Some love her, some do not.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        I love her. I enjoy curvy women.

        • Roronoa FunkDoc

          “curvy”

        • Kenny_Reigns

          I do, too!

      • Roronoa FunkDoc

        Great tits but the rest of her body is awful

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        How can you be not into that?

        • Kenny_Reigns

          It’s the BoD! Bad takes are everywhere!

          • PATRICKisLEGEND

            Man, even Kenny’s into it and he’s known for liking awful stuff!

          • Wild Wing

            Some people here don’t respect Will Smith’s music!

          • Matt_Indeed.

            That’s wicky-wicky-wild!

          • PATRICKisLEGEND

            I can’t stand this fucking place sometimes.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I need a lot of breaks from it.

      • She’s fine. Huge tits, cute face, a little thick. Definitely my style. Don’t understand the gaga for her though. She’s not as hot as people seem to make her out to be.

        • PATRICKisLEGEND

          I’m surprised she got the cover this year. She was definitely the “it girl” of ’11 – ’14 but kind of dropped off the radar.

    • I enjoy large breasts

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Amen brother.

  • How amazing would it be if they finally pulled the trigger on Kurt/Steph
    All these years of her being a monster was covering up the hole in her heart for picking Hunter over Kurt

    • Revisiting the Steph/Angle/Hunter triangle, now 15 years later with Hunter & Stephanie being married with 3 children, would be an awesome dynamic.

    • TatR!

      Hi it’s me Kurt i’m just here to see Aurora yes IT’S TRUE IT’S and so on

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    Recommend me some Netflix movies

    • Wild Wing

      Trainspotting

    • The Polish Hammer

      Not a movie, but watch Joe Rogan’s latest stand-up special. I was literally ROTFLMFAO at times.

      • Devin Harris

        His podcast with Leno was surprisingly interesting

        • The Polish Hammer

          The guy is amazing when he’s not preaching about mind-altering substances.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    The Champions. Is. HERE! *

    *minus all the times he’s on award shows, daytime shows and movie shoots

  • Chris

    So the idea for that shoot is everyone is going to talk about Dusty? May as well just watch Crockett promos from 1988.

  • Bobby

    Who’s the tag team champs? Because The ComBo’s undefeated and coming right for ya!

    • Strike Force atm. Brick Skills and Curtzerker are facing off on RAW this Monday for the #1 contender’s spot. ComBo is a definite threat though. I’m a little worried about you guys, all bullshit aside.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        I’m a tag champ? I had no idea.

  • Meltzer went 5 stars on Naito/Elgin from New Beginning Osaka.

  • Mikey

    Peak era Tyra Banks is probably my favorite SI Covergirl.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Tyra…great curves. A+

    • Brian_Bayless

      I liked Kathy Ireland a lot too.

      • Mikey

        She’s still looking good IIRC

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    BoD: Pizza and blowjobs? Meh. Not my thing.

    • The Polish Hammer

      It’ll burn the roof of your mouth. And the pizza will be pretty hot too.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      No to pizzas yes to blowjobs

    • Yes to both, as long as the second comes from a nice-looking female.

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    BoD: Cold beer and hot blondes? Pass.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I prefer redheads.

    • Mikey

      Nothing wrong with either. I know the sXe guys probably don’t like beer though.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        *proudly makes X sign with his arms *

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        Some of you guys just hate everything that’s awesome though… I can’t stand the negativity. Kate Upton could probably take over a small country just by showing up and some people are like… Eh, too blonde.

    • Pass on the first, the second is a maybe. Dumb bimbos do not interest me, no matter how hot.

  • Wild Wing

    I’m really excited to see what the next era of WWE is after WM33.

    I think it’s going to be the “NXT Super Indie” Era. They’ve already started signing guys specifically to be main eventers.

    • Ioan Morris

      Who do envisage as the main eventers?

      • They’re probably going to split Chris Hero up in 5 Smaller Heroes to troll the mid-to-low-card…except one that’s main event. Each one would still be hilariously fat but not as fat.

        In all seriousness, Nakamura and Roode are the best bets.

        • Wild Wing

          Good call on Roode too.

      • Wild Wing

        I think Cena and Orton will finally fade, but Balor, Joe, KO & maybe Shinsuke will be all over the next three years along with the Shield guys.

        • Ioan Morris

          Those guys aren’t all that young though.

          • Wild Wing

            True. But in three years we’ll be someplace different again.

            There’s a more impressive amount of uppercard churn then you’d think.

            Like look at the 32, 29 and 26 Wrestlemania cards and they’re almost unrecognizable except for four or five stalwarts.

  • Matt_Indeed.

    I’m assuming most of you are uggos (except for Kenny, TatR and myself), I don’t know how you can be so judgy of someone who has been a supermodel for nearly decade. But we are talking about wrestling fans, so I guess that explains it.
    Nevermind. Proceed.

    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      lmao, chill out. You don’t even have to be judgy to notice that. You can go to instagram and find a million hotter everyday chicks than Kate Upton

      • Matt_Indeed.

        There are a million hot chicks. This is true.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        I’m not basing Kate Upton’s hotness when compared to other girls. I’m just saying in general, she is an attractive girl. I didn’t say she was the hottest or in the top 50. I said she was hot.

    • Wild Wing

      I always enjoy how dismissive you tend to be towards differing opinions lol

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Dismissive? You must be an uggo.

    • Biscuit!
      • Matt_Indeed.

        Amen.

    • Night

      My favourite was when Bonzai talks about the various uggos that he thinks are hot like Bea Arthur or some wrinkly old lady but then went on a laundry list of why Maryse is unattractive (her boobs are uneven, he doesn’t like her hair, her nose appears crooked, etc).

      • Matt_Indeed.

        This is exactly my point.

        • Roronoa FunkDoc

          Not everybody’s into refrigerators with tits.

          • Night

            How big are the tits?

        • Night

          Everyone has different tastes. I think Stephanie McMahon is the most unattractive woman in wrestling today but some find that she’s a goddess. I don’t see it but I’m not gonna smash a guy who thinks she’s hot.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      Hundreds of unused penises on the BoD.

      • Night

        Thousands when it’s a PPV thread.

    • Dwayne

      Kate Upton could get it.

    • Bobby

      I don’t think it’s fair to lump us all into Bonzai’s weirdness.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        We lump all the time here, and I never get to do it! This is my shot, man!

    • DAJackson7

      Kate Upton is super hot, that cover she did for the swimsuit issue three years ago reminded me of being 15 again with the Kathy Ireland cover.

    • TatR!

      Upvote for the bit about TatR

      • TatR!

        And also Kate Upton, despite apparently being a bit terrible, is highly attractive. Even though I’ll never not find the description of her here once as looking like a “squishy brick” hilarious.

  • wnyxmcneal

    Colt Cabana was on Chicago PD last night. It was pretty great.

    • Night

      Peyton Manning was on Modern Family.

  • Bobby

    I’ll especially enjoy when Cena comes back and does his “You gotta go
    through me/nobody loves this business more than me” shtick to someone
    who’s busted their asses in gyms and shit for most of their careers to get where they are.

    And then he gets to pin that guy.

    • Night

      And everyone will cream their pants about how Cena is so good even though all his matches are the fucking same.

      • Mikey

        Most WWE wrestlers have the same match or very similar. John is just better than the rest.

    • They’re going to have to embrace the “Hollywood Cena” aspect of his character sooner rather than later. He can’t keep leaving for months at a time and coming back to be self-righteous about his love for the business for much longer without everybody booing him out of the arenas. But I guess that hasn’t stopped them the past 12 years so…

    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      And then not actually treat them as somebody to be respected until he gets his win back.

  • Oh look, Disqus is fucked again.

  • Bruce Chung

    Part-timer John
    Part-timer John

  • Brian_Bayless
    • 3 different chicks last year is better than 3 upton’s

    • Decker’s is pretty great

    • 1984… yeah, that one would be parodied to hell and back now.

    • Night

      Whatever happened to Vendela? She was on the cover and then disappeared.

    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      Early-Mid-00s Beyonce>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      • Thebraziliankid

        Back when she wasn’t Che Guevarra II.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      BoD: Meh.

      • Roronoa FunkDoc

        My standards aren’t that high. I’m just saying that Kate Upton, specifically, isn’t that hot.

        • Thebraziliankid

          She’s a solid 8/10.

    • Man…I remember Brooklyn Decker being the next IT Girl, then she did that Sandler movie and that was it.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Sandler movies are career killers now. That’s My Boy murdered Samberg’s movie career and he is lucky he even got Brooklyn 99

        • Diddly

          Now that you mention it you don’t see Leighton Meester around anywhere either

          • I think the last thing I remember her doing was in that lame RDJ movie The Judge

  • Wild Wing

    I’m pretty excited for Cena vs Shinsuke down the road!

    • Brian_Bayless

      Joe vs. Zayn should be good, actually. I dont they have ever wrestled and Zayn can sell like a motherfucker.

      • johntcole

        They had a “conflicting” match in NXT a year ago.

      • Ioan Morris

        Didn’t they have a 55 minute match in NXT? I never watched it.

        • It was like 40 minutes….but they did. It was an OK match but I don’t need to revisit this

          • zahidf

            Yeah, they had a one on one match which went to a draw, and then a best of three falls match which went on for the whole NXT show.

      • Wild Wing

        That match was 20 minutes too long in NXT.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      I’m excited for Cena to kick out of Kinsasha 3 times!

      • Night

        “That’s Iron Chin John for ya, Maggle!” – JBL

    • Thebraziliankid

      Nak jobbing to Cena will be awful.

      • johntcole

        Eh, that’s far from a sure thing nowadays.

  • johntcole

    Looking at this surreal photo again

    https://twitter.com/dhm/status/831859686269976576

    I ask, how the fuck did we end up here?

    • Just think of the fun fact

      • johntcole

        Vince Fucking McMahon is in the White House inches away from the POTUS, no that is not all I can think of.

    • Biscuit!

      Austin hurt his neck, so he didn’t catch the other 54%

      • Night

        There’s still time.

    • Because Vince didn’t let them come in as the Sheepherders.

      • johntcole

        Of course the Bushwhackers are responsible for the entire US political system being upheaved.

    • Brian_Bayless

      You too can donate millions to the president and get your wife a spot in his cabinet.

      • johntcole

        If I’m Mike Pence I’m making sure my record is completely clean when the inevitable impeachment hearings come for Donald.

  • Thebraziliankid

    Cena is doing a war movie with Kickass/Quicksilver, let’s if he has real acting talent.

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      If they ever do an X-Factor movie I can see Cena playing Havok if they ever brought the character back

  • Matt_Indeed.

    TIL I’m a BoD Tag Champion.
    How unfortunate I have to share it with Mar.

    • Dwayne

      Is he an uggo?

      • Matt_Indeed.

        *sprays aquanet*
        I didn’t say that. You said it.

    • Biscuit!

      Yeesh, it’s like the Soul Patrol except with negative soul.

    • We can get those off your hands if it’s too much trouble for you

      • Matt_Indeed.

        No thanks!

    PWG has a really good lineup this weekend:

    Lio Rush vs. Ricochet
    Jay White vs. Marty Scurll
    Rey Fenix vs. Trent
    Matt Riddle & Jeff Cobb vs. Michael Elgin & Brian Cage
    Cody R. vs. Trevor Lee
    Jake Crist & Dave Crist & Sami Callihan vs. Young Bucks & Adam Cole
    Chuck Taylor vs. Zack Sabre Jr. for the PWG Title.

    • Thebraziliankid

      I’m kinda done with Ricochet to be honest, he’s just doing the same schtick over and over.

    • Ioan Morris

      Cobb vs. Elgin would be fun. Has that happened?

      • Not to my knowledge

        • Ioan Morris

          Elgin’s starting his own promotion soon. He talked about getting some of the BJW hosses over.

          • Biscuit!

            First show Sunday. I’ll be there.

          • Ioan Morris

            Niiice. Where’s it based and what’s on the show?

          • Biscuit!

            It’s in the St. Louis area. Elgin married MsChif, who is from here. The event is a tourney with some local indy guys and the main is Elgin vs. Riddle.

          • Ioan Morris

            Woah, hell of a main event.

          • Biscuit!

            The show in May looks to have some good guys also – Pentagon is coming. Tyson Dux will be at the show Sunday as well.

          • Brian_Bayless

            That’s a pretty great main event

          • DAJackson7

            Were in the area, i think i’m heading that way Saturday and i might try and go!

    • Diddly

      And then Wrestlecircus is copying the entire card the next night!

  • Thebraziliankid

    Continuing my chronicles with the SJW from college, some people are now saying that a black man cannot date a non black chick, this will not make black communities enpowered.

    • TatR!

      segregation is progressive to some people these days

      • Thebraziliankid

        If you’re a black man that dates a white chick, you’re a traitor! This all started because a white chick was using a turbant.

      • Biscuit!

        Stay over there, whitey.

        • TatR!

          hey man look i don’t want any trouble okay

    • Dwayne

      What about banging and not dating?

      • Thebraziliankid

        Any type of relation.

    • Robert

      I’ve dated/married white women since I was 19. Oops.

      • Matt Johnson

        Same here. Married to a white woman. Guess I won’t be welcome at the next black community meeting. Do I have to turn in my membership card and send back the free t-shirt?

        • TatR!

          NO JUST SEND US BACK OUR WOMEN BOTH OF YOU

  • Wild Wing

    I mean pretty excited for Jeffrey Loria to be ambassador to France!

    • Biscuit!

      Also to sell the Marlins to Jared Kushner’s brother!

      • DAJackson7

        They said they won’t buy if he gets that Ambassadorship

        • Biscuit!

          Well that’s good. Their word is gold.

  • Mikey

    I think that it’s okay to judge the looks of celebs here. I just think a select few take it too far.

    • Dwayne

      Uggo

    • Matt_Indeed.

      It’s pretty funny.

    • Ioan Morris

      Frankly, I find it cringeworthy for anyone here to knock the looks of a woman.

      • Lita IS a skanky whore… sorry, I call them as I see them.

        • Napoleon Blownapart

          I actually haven’t heard too many stories from wrestlers regarding that. Most say she’s a pretty cool chick.

          • Thebraziliankid

            Lita is beloved in Mexico for her head skills.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Be careful, douchebags will say you’re white knighting.

        • Ioan Morris

          Not much I can do about that.

      • Biscuit!

        Sounds like something an uggo would say.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        “I believe in taking care of myself. With a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine.”

        • Biscuit!

          NEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD

    • Wild Wing

      I think it goes to far sometimes but it’s not out of bound to point out when a “normal hot” actress is miscast or portrayed weirdly above her attraction station.

      i.e. Sally Field in Smokey & the Bandit

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Sally Field was adorable.

      • Are you suggesting Sally Field didn’t look awesome in Smokey and the Bandit?

        • Wild Wing

          I’m saying the world of the movie portrayed it like she was Christie Brinkley and that was weird.

          • Oh, I don’t know. But I remember thinking “wow, Sally Field is fucking HOT” when I first watched that movie. Before that I only knew her as Mrs. Doubtfire’s angry old wife.

      • Matt Johnson

        Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Dark Knight is another one. She’s an attractive chick in my opinion but I wouldn’t say she’s as hot as the characters in the movie act like her character is.

    • Mordecai Jones

      I think this board has its share of sexless, doughy, hypocritical feebs who say shit far and above what angered so many of the same people coming from Mr. Trump. I see it on a daily basis, disguised as “macho locker room talk” (much like the excuse Trump’s team made). And I think it’s absolutely hilarious and amazing. To those few, keep it up. You’re great at your life job of being absolute clowns. Best joke of all, that an adult woman with a brain would go anywhere near the bloated sack some of these boys call a body.

  • johntcole

    Scott says Hero has no chance on the main roster now but I’m not too sure about that if he can lose enough weight.

    • He probably won’t. If anything, he just punched his retirement ticket in a couple years as a PC coach

      • johntcole

        I really want the NXT team of Hunter, Joe, and Owens vs the updated Kings of Wrestling stable of Hero, Cesaro, and Sheamus.

    • Wild Wing

      If they didn’t want him they wouldn’t have resigned him.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        “That’s debatable.” – Alberto Del Rio

        • johntcole

          Well Hero isn’t a complete flacky asshole.

        • Wild Wing

          They put him over Cena in his first match back. That’s more on ADR being a lazy druggy than anything.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            I know. I’m just bored.

          • Thebraziliankid

            ADR did managed to snatch a lot of money from Vince, AGAIN!

      • johntcole

        I mean he could stay in NXT and the PC but I think he could contribute something on Raw or SDL.

        • Wild Wing

          He will be.

    • Brian_Bayless

      There’s definitely a chance. He had one of the best years in wrestling last year. Plus, he would be a great trainer

      • johntcole

        He’s absolutely got a better chance as a trainer of course.

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    I mean, when the blog is dedicated to wrestling, and there’s a SHIT TON of opinions that are just flat out wrong on wrestling… I guess I shouldn’t be surprised when Kate Upton doesn’t get their pencil moving.

    • I don’t see anybody here claiming that she’s ugly or unfuckable. It’s just, when she gets pushed as the hottest woman alive, that’s pretty subjective. As someone said earlier, you can find hotter girls on Instagram.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Nobody here said that she was the hottest woman alive.

        • Dwayne

          There’s a lot of she’s hot, but….

          If a chick is hot, she’s hot. End of story. Would you bang or not? Yes. ok.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            THIS.

        • No but that is sort of the unspoken implication when you get the SI swimsuit cover. I think that’s where people take issue, perhaps. I don’t know, I don’t have a horse in this race. She isn’t my favorite in the world but I’d also bang her until my dick fell off, so… it’s a push for me.

        • Roronoa FunkDoc

          I’m mostly just taking offense by how ridiculous you acted about it.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            I didn’t act ridiculous. I just said that Kate Upton is hot, she’s been a supermodel for years, and it’s hilarious to me that you would insult her looks. That’s it.

          • Roronoa FunkDoc

            Do we have to go back down the thread again?

          • Matt_Indeed.

            I would, if you hadn’t deleted your comment in which I replied, “That’s insane.”

          • Roronoa FunkDoc

            …?

    • Robert

      I’m just not attracted to blondes and never have been. Simple as that, really.

    • Bruce Chung

      I don’t really like blonds, but Upton is really hot.

  • Dwayne

    I saw the hidden gem match with Ohno and Rollins from FCW. It was alrite.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Ohno was mentally defeated by that point.

      • Dwayne

        I noticed the difference between how he worked then and now.

  • Brian_Bayless
    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      And she said some horseshit about Kaepernick’s protests.

      • Robert

        Why does she think anyone cares what she has to say?

    • Bruce Chung

      She’ll be in enough photos even if she’s a diva.

    • HartKiller_09

      First they don’t let her vote for the Cy Young winner and now this?

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    Watching The People vs. OJ Simpson. Any time “Rob kardashian” talks I just think, “Shut up, Ross”

    • Thebraziliankid

      Travolta’s Shapiro is the best thing in that show.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      No wonder that whole family is so fucked up.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “You can always be thinner, look…..better “

  • ..I’m assuming the reason my phone has not rang from ABC with their offer to give me a Modern Family spinoff is they are trying to decide just how big of an offer to make me

    • Brian_Bayless

      Yes

      • I’ll work BoD wrestling into every episode

        • Brian_Bayless

          Lots of carefully placed NationWide and Papa John’s product placements

          Every episode starts and ends with you reading my shoot interview recaps

        • Maybe we can work in a Heartbreak Hotel interview segment hosted by your *best friend*, the two time Million Dollar Champion Shawn Micskills!

  • TatR!

    Today I learned, rather too quickly after submitting my application, that I will not be returning to my previous school of employment to manage a team there

    • Ioan Morris

      Didn’t you recently get a promotion?

      • TatR!

        Yeah but it was a maternity cover, ending in July. So I’m already starting the job search

        • Ioan Morris

          Ah right. How is the newish job?

          • TatR!

            Alright. Tough. It was a big step up. Feel like I’m doing my old job and an entire extra job on top of it.

          • Ioan Morris

            Worth the extra money?

          • TatR!

            Yeah. Gotta be done, gotta advance. Just a steep learning curve, need to be better organized. It’s a transitional job, I’ll be much better prepared for whatevers next as a result

  • So I’m watching this Modern Family from last night JESUS those kids grew up

    • Ioan Morris

      I’m half-watching the latest season because it’s on a free streaming service trial and, good lord, it’s just noise these days. They’re running on air.

      • its gonna happen after that many years plus they had a great dynamic of characters and ages so when everyone is an adult it kinda fucks things up.

        • Ioan Morris

          End of season 7, I believe, they had Hayley and her boyfriend break up even though that relationship had been teased for years. At that point it was like, yep, there’s nowhere to go now.

  • Biscuit!

    Wow, Elgin just booked his third card and Cody Rhodes is coming. He’s not going cheap.

    • Wild Wing

      What BJW guys is he getting?

      • Ioan Morris

        I don’t know that he’s getting them, but he mentioned on twitter that he’d like to book himself and War Machine vs. Jeff Cobb (I think) and Strong BJ.

      • Biscuit!

        So far the only Japanese guy I’ve seen advertised is Shigehiro Irie.

        • Wild Wing

          He’s a funny guy. His Twitter just put up a bunch of funny photoshops.

  • Hottest female wrestler to never get a real chance in the “big leagues*” ?

    (*WWE, WCW, and I’ll allow TNA while they were on Spike.)

    • Was Allison Danger even in those companies? If not, that’s my pick

      • … ooh, this one will bring out some assholes.

    • Mikey

      Veda Scott ever in TNA?

      • Not while on Spike, IIRC.

        • Mikey

          I’ll go with her.

      • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

        Only in the past year, and that was on like on loan. She was my answer too.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Beulah

      • She did the first two One Night Stands…so that covers WWE.

      • Oops, I forgot ECW on TNN. But I’m not even sure if she’d gone away before then or not, memory’s hazy on that one.

        • Pretty sure she was gone by then

          • I remember the Duds put her out, I just don’t remember when.

  • JDW

    I’m shocked that they’re going to let Angle wrestle since they still won’t let Bryan. But if Goldberg’s return is any indication, we can expect Angle to be champ headed into next year’s Mania.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Bryan’s stuff I get as its neurological and he was reporting seizures.

      • JDW

        I do understand them not letting Bryan wrestle. I just thought them benching him was also signaling in a new era where they don’t let these guys who are so beat up and have a history of broken necks, concussions, etc. wrestle anymore. I think I overestimated how much they care about the health of their performers!

        • But Goldberg never had broken necks on diagnosed concussions. All his injuries were slashing his arm and damaging his heel

          • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

            But Angle did. And is a pill-popper with multiple concussions. I have 0 interest in seeing him in the ring again.

  • I had to share my episode of Modern Family with Martin Stein?

  • Brian_Bayless

    Meltzer gave Charlotte vs. Bayley ****1/4, same as my rating.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Ratings Twinsies!

    • was really good.. it I think has suffered from being over shadowed by their best segment in years

    • Ioan Morris

      What did he give Naito/Elgin?

      • Mikey

        *****

        • Ioan Morris

          Good old Dave, dependably a 1/4* above my ratings.

          • Mikey

            Same. He gave the Elimination Chamber match ****1/2, I had it a quarter star lower. All semantics at that point, anyhow.

          • Ioan Morris

            It’s pretty cool to see him really enjoy his wrestling at the moment.

  • Devin Harris

    I hate when this woman complains about me not calling and then carry on 30 other conversations when I do call. Let. Me. Go.

    • Brian_Bayless

      My wife calls me at work then proceeds to talk to other people in the background and I sit their like an asshole. Drives me shithouse.

        • DAJackson7

          Wait, should i enter my info and get a background check on there?

      • yea Blanche who can’t even carry her phone on her at her job for some reason thinks it is ok to call me at work bring up one thing and then just sit on the phone with me till I’m like……..anything else……
        her: no
        Me: ok…cause….you called me
        her:… oh right

      • Night

        My cousin wil text his wife and ask how her day is and she’ll call him right back to have a phone conversation.

        It drives him crazy.

        • Philippe Tca

          Simple solution there

  • Wild Wing

    Is Cage done with AAA? He was on The Crash when the Hardys and La Rebellion showed up.

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    I guess I’m just weirded out by here because Kate Upton gets roasted by black twitter and hip-hop message boards lol

    • Brian_Bayless

      She’s hot but until she was brought up here today I forgot she even existed.

    • She’s not fat enough for them.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Exposing America’s cultural divide.

    • Wild Wing

      Attraction is a subjective thing. It’s always silly when people get angry or judgey when opinions don’t match up.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        The most attractive women are the ones I fuck.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        So judging women on their attractiveness is okay, but judging you on your opinions of said attractiveness is silly? Got it. Needed to know the line.

        • Wild Wing

          I feel like you are the sort of gent who doesn’t understand why someone else wouldn’t like a song as much as you.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            Untrue. You like Wild Wild West. I don’t care for it. Me saying it’s a silly, dorky rap song and I’m unsure why you would care for it doesn’t negate your opinion of it. It just states mine.

          • Wild Wing

            So we can like things to various degrees and it’s okay?

          • Matt_Indeed.

            YES, what a shock, I know.

          • Wild Wing

            So it’s fine to not find Kate Upton attractive?

          • Matt_Indeed.

            Absolutely. Whateverhisname is clearly doesn’t. If I think he’s wrong, that’s my opinion.

    • Dwayne

      I do like girls with more hips and butt. At the same time, Kate could get it.

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    Alright, I had to turn the People vs. OJ Simpson off. This show is terrible. You need the twitter experience for it to be watchable.

  • Miko363

    So was the whole Rumble thing to give John Cena title #16 as a thank you in case he decides he’s gonna stay in Hollywood forever?

    • Brian_Bayless

      Isnt it so they can hurry up and have him break Flair’s record

      • Wild Wing

        Summerslam!

    • I think Vince has legit concerns that Cena isn’t going to stick around much longer, so if anybody should tie/break the record, it’s Cena.

    • I mean look at Rock. He was supposed to go on “hiatus” to do Hollywood stuff and next thing you know he’s g-o-n-e-gone. Vince doesn’t want to get played again.

    • johntcole

      He’s stated he’s not retiring anytime soon. We’ll see I guess.

    • zahidf

      Well yeah. No more house shows for Cena, just the occasional Mania or Summerslam

  • Roronoa FunkDoc

    Nice, Netlfix has Heathers. Now I have something to watch.

  • Fat, Ugly Inner-City Sweathog

    Kurt Angle would be a big boost for Smackdown’s roster, even temporarily, so I’m sure he’ll be on Raw

  • Something I was thinking about with Festival of Friendship is it was one time where a 3 hour show helped. I doubt if raw was 2 hours you would have got like 5 minutes of antics before Jericho even made it into the ring

  • Stranger In the Alps

    Isn’t it amazing that a place as diverse as this one doesn’t just have one opinion, no matter how wrong they all are?

    • Robert

      I still hate Miz

    • TatR!

      so many different types of people here. Uggos, non-uggos….

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Well, the uggos are always wrong by default.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        You are telling me, my also-attractive friend.

    • Biscuit!

      Like all those wrong people who think base ball is good…

      • Stranger In the Alps

        Just like all those uggos who yell “MURICA” when watching foot ball.

  • DAJackson7

    TIL that Abigail Spencer has some nice videos on the internet…………….

    • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

      That she does. I still have no idea who she is outside of those, but who cares.

    I’m not a fashion guy at all but even I find 80s fashion to be cringeworthy. All these damn blazers with super broad shoulders!

  • In today’s edition of “Well, Ryback’s not totally wrong on this”

    ….he says that the RKO is the most over move in the WWE today.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      Pretty much true. No other move has a million memes made out of it.

    • Wild Wing

      I love how Randy can immediately pull the entire crowd on the setup to it, even if it never hits.

      He’s a seriously underrated crowd psychologist.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        If Randy didn’t have the RKO, he would never be over.

    • Roronoa FunkDoc

      The Diamond Cutter/Stunner and all of its variants will always be over. I’d dare say it’s the best move in wrestling history.

    • Robert

      There’s something about that move. DDP had the WCW fans rabid for the Diamond Cutter too.

      • Bruce Chung

        It’s fast, and it can hit from just about anywhere.

  • JosephM

    Cena: I am back! I aint a part timer!

    Proceeds to be gone 3/4 of the year. Lol.

    • Bruce Chung

      Part-timer John and brand traitor Undertaker are both shit.

        Don’t forget Hunter Hearst Fellatio, always needing his ego sucked!

      • Ripner Cabbit

        Taker is jut doing what’s asked of him, but Cena to make that promo and not mean it at all (He had to of already started making these plans by then) is shit.

  • Also with Festival of Friendship I will give Bucky some credit. holding on the long shot for when Jericho brought out KO and he just shuffles into view way in the background was brilliant

    • DAJackson7

      They have really great moments of camera brilliance, then really stupefying ones, it drives me nuts, just stay with the excellent stuff

      • That went so well I really wonder if Jericho and KO pretty much did it all himself

        • The “List of KO” reveal was done perfectly.

          • JosephM

            On a rewatch I did notice it said List of KO briefly in the wide shot before cutting to a medium shot of Jericho. But it was brief and you only notice it because now you’re aware of what it says. Just great work all around.

          • chicagodem79

            You can really only judge these things in real time, and I didn’t notice anything at all, so call it a win for them.

          • It was nice to give us that tease, because you immediately knew where it was all headed and you felt terrible for Jericho once he figures it out himself.

        • Daniel O’Reilly

          Much higher quality than the normal writer’s room drivel, so it seems pretty likely.

        • Ioan Morris

          They’ve been giving Jimmy Jacobs a lot of credit for his role in the angle.

    Puroreso Spirit has been putting up little write ups of various AJPW, NOAH and now BJW guys up on their Facebook. It’s a nice little resource for anybody interested in the extended Japanese scene.

  • Thebraziliankid

    Imagine if KO said Jericho’s name was on the list because it was The list of Friendship!

    • Biscuit!

      That would have been the best.

      • Thebraziliankid

        I’m gonna miss those two together.

  • JosephM

    Sign to bring to Smackdown post-WrestleMania: Where’s Cena? I really can’t see him!

    • DAJackson7

      I just bought post-WM SD house show tickets and him not being there makes it even better!

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      They’d take it anyway

      • chicagodem79

        Nicki Marvnaj is just wrong on so many levels…..kudos! LOL

  • I don’t understand why Cagematch has removed the year by year pictures for all the wrestlers. That was one of the best features.

    • Wild Wing

      They say they are worried about being possibly sued. It’s kind of sad.

      • 🙁

      • Biscuit!

        Is Cagematch even a commercial site? It would be a shame for a fansite to be sued over pictures.

        • Wild Wing

          It isn’t.

          There’s an explanation in the news section of the front page.

  • Biscuit!

    Oh, and one more thing: you must find the jade monkey before the next full moon.

    • JosephM

      We found the jade monkey sir.

      • Biscuit!

        And the road maps and ice scraper?

  • Matt_Indeed.

    Randy Orton is the most boring, slow-moving. WWE-homogenized-to-the-max wrestler of the modern era. If he didn’t have the RKO and was 3 inches shorter, he would be a middling dayplayer like 95% of the roster.
    There’s an opinion.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      He has tons of potential, but has never delivered on it.

      • He had fleeting moments of brilliance.

      • The Duck

        He suffered from coming in at the same time as Cena.

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      If he didn’t have the RKO and was 3 inches shorter he’d be Shinsuke Nakamura.

      • Robert

        Uh oh.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        You say that like I care about Shinsuke Nakamura.

        • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

          Exactly, that’s the point. Nakamura is a lazier Randy Orton

      • The Duck

        Ironically, Okada is the peak Randy Orton.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          Absolutely he is!

        • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

          I don’t know who that is but ok

          • The Duck

            The puro smark darling above all puro smark darlings.

        • Biscuit!

          *Evolutionary Bockwinkel

          • The Duck

            That’s also Orton.

          • Biscuit!

            It’s hard to ignore all the Cowboy Bob in there.

      • If you were 3 inches shorter, you’d be a butt plug.

        You’re already a pain in the ass.

        Jerk.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I really enjoyed him in 2004, before the face turn.

    • Stan Ford

      I think most people share that opinion. People pop for the start of his music, the RKO and any time he returns after a layoff. Otherwise, no one cares.

    • Randy was going to get smashed over no matter what because he was handsome in his youth. Like, A-List Hollywood handsome. Vince loves that. Over the years he has morphed more and more into Cowboy Bob.

      • Biscuit!

        He’s got Cowboy Bob’s motor too. If he cares, classic. If not, woof.

    • chicagodem79

      He’s a perfectly acceptable WWE style pro wrestler who happens to have one of the most over moves in wrestling history.

      • TatR!

        HE STOLE IT FROM DDP

  • Stranger In the Alps

    So after the Starship Troopers discussion last week, I went with DEATH WISH this week for review. A pro-gun, pro-vigilantism message and Charles Bronson giving a solid performance for about 3/4 of the film before slipping into RoboBronson mode.

    http://www.retromovienerd.com/2017/02/death-wish-1974.html?m=1

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I’m still mad at you over the Straship Troopers rating. Meanie!

      • Stranger In the Alps

        I liked it, didn’t love it. Just for you, Kenny, Black Christmas is next.

        • Starship Troopers is a film I feel the need to revisit every few years. Too bad the sequels are complete fucking dogshit.

    • Mordecai Jones

      Then follow-up with DWII and III and enjoy!

    • “You still want my bat?”

      “No.”

    • chicagodem79

      “This guy has a good curveball” lol, that was awesome.

  • Bruce Chung

    Bray Wyatt is only 29? Wow.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    Kento Miyahara is just 27.

    • Ioan Morris

      Tyler Bate being 19 is remarkable.

      • Mordecai Jones

        From the looks of him, wrestling is 1 of a dozen athletic routes he could take. Kid could be a damn powerlifter.

  • oh I forgot to mention did you guys hear TNA is going to have to blur out the Ref for the Hardy match tonight because he’s under contact to Lucha?

    • Robert

      Seems a bit petty on LU’s part. He’s a freaking referee.

      • The Duck

        LU is just AAA in a nicer costume.

      • I’m guessing after the Hernandez fiasco Lucha has very little lead way for TNA

  • The Duck

    Quack

    • Biscuit!

      Hoo boy.

      • The Duck

        : D

      • Matt_Indeed.

        What? I don’t see the problem. This all looks correct.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Might as well. Ain’t nobody calling you anything else.

      Duck died and this is Ducks brother 🙁

  • Funkadactyl Cameron is apparently at the Daily News office right now.

    • Dwayne

      Why

      • Who the fuck knows. Just got a Facebook Live notification. I don’t even know who the girl interviewing her is.

      • Probably wants to retract her favourite match. After 6 years, she finally realizes how stupid Melina vs Alicia is.

  • Matt_Indeed.

    They should give Tyler Bate a “Lord of the Manor” sort of gimmick.
    …..
    ….Call him Master Bate.

    • Biscuit!

      Look at this jerk, they’d say.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        His finisher is the chokeslam.

        • Diddly

          During the match he rubs his opponents out on the mat

          • “No Way Jose” Gomez

            His german suplex can be called The Reach Around

          • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

            After the finish of every match he immediately falls asleep in the ring

        • JDW

          The five knuckle shuffle always finishes him.

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      Yeah! Or have him be a shit disturber from Greece named Exacer.

    • Eric Von Erich

      How about giving him a manager that he refers to as his “chum”? They could be Bate and Chum.

    • Stranger In the Alps

      He should come to the ring with baby oil and a box of tissues.

    • . . .

      stahp.

    • I expect this low-level of quality humor from Duck!

          • Same here.

    • You didn’t even try.

    • TatR!

      The Marv avatar vote will be split 365 ways and you’ll win with 2 votes for this pile of garbage

    Time for lunch, or as the Uggos call it, 3rd breakfast.

  • The Great One

    I’m a big fan of Randy Orton. I understand some may disagree, and that’s fine. It’s that variety of viewpoints that free speech allows and having equal weight allotted to that truly makes America great!

      Why Duck, WHY?

      • The Great One

        I just think he’s a very talented wrestler.

  • Ioan Morris

    Went to my old flat, found a Christmas card with a £20 gift voucher, so got myself a few DVDs. Curb season 8, Stop Making Sense, and a couple of Doctor Who stories (Inferno and Mind of Evil). Merry Christmas to me!

      And you still had a farthing left to buy the biggest Christmas goose in all of London!

          God Bless Us, Everyone!

  • Anyone here ever had a colonic irrigation? And if so, did you notice any tangible benefits?

    • Ioan Morris

      My old housemate used to have them occasionally. It was almost like he was coked up afterwards.

      • I feel like it’s not something you should do regularly, but could be good if you did it once a year or so. The whole shoving a tube up your arse is a big hurdle to overcome though.

        • Ioan Morris

          Are you saying you want one or have had one?

          • I don’t know. That’s why I’m keen to hear if there’s any appreciable gain from having it done.

          • PATRICKisLEGEND

            There is shit in your colon. When you shit, the shit comes out, but some shit is left behind. The next time you shit, that old shit will come out. Shit doesn’t stay there for years, but shit is continuously there… because there’s shit in your colon, and your colon holds shit.

    • TatR!

      tube up the ass, what more benefit do you want

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      This Wiffle needs an enema!

      Absolutely zero benefit to this unless you like the feeling.

  • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

    Ugh, Angle wrestling. They have learned absolute nothing, or have forgotten why Angle left in the first place. They’ll probably have him wrestle Unsafe Seth, too.

    • TatR!

      Looking forward to the renewal of the Angle/Joe feud

      • radtke

        No I know a lot of people didn’t watch TNA but I haven’t waited 11 years for Angle to return just to keep wrestling Styles, Joe, Roode, Perkins, Aries and Young

    • “No Way Jose” Gomez

      I’ll fix his broken neck
      – Seth

      • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

        Can you imagine if they match up Angle and Seth? Hell, Joe has injured two guys on the main roster. Angle’s crazy enough to request the muscle buster, too.

    • Biscuit!

      It’s important for someone to die in the ring.

      • johntcole

        Is it safe to say though that if Angle were to die in the ring it would have happened ages ago?

        • Robert

          Probably. I think he’s lived with his injuries and limitations long enough to know what he can and can’t do in the ring anymore.

          • johntcole

            If he can pass their medical tests I see nothing wrong with him doing a few matches that DON’T involve doing moonsaults off the tops of cages.

          • radtke

            What would be the point?

        • SMOAKAMANIA IV by Jawas

          No it’s not. If his neck is fucked it’s not getting better over time. He could end up like Misawa, where a routine move does it. I just don’t see that the risk is worth the reward on this one for WWE.

          Except for paying their employees, and such.

          • radtke

            That was emulated from ECW

      🙁

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        It’s hurriedly cramming food into your face anytime you get 10 seconds alone.

    • Robert

      I try to avoid eating lunch at my desk because we need that hour break. But some days, it’s just not possible, unless I want to work in the evening at home.

      • Matt Johnson

        I usually just take a half hour so I can leave early. I live across town and while traffic isn’t bad where I live (Charlottesville, VA), it’s a pain in the ass from 4:30-5. Sometimes I do go out just to get away from people though.

    Facebook has announced that businesses in the United States and Canada will soon be able to post job listings on their pages, and potential hires will be able to easily browse local openings through a new “Jobs” bookmark. The update is rolling out over the next few weeks for both the Facebook iOS and Android apps, and on the web.

    The company said that the update is aimed at small business owners who may find it more difficult than expected to hire talent for specific positions. After a job is posted, employers can review applicants, contact them on Facebook Messenger, and set up an interview date for the best candidates. The update has already begun as a small test in parts of the U.S.

    • Diddly

      FUUUUUUUCK THAT

    • Biscuit!

      That’s a convenient way for potential employers to search profiles.

      • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

        That’s a really positive thing. That way employers can avoid hiring people for what they say on the internet instead of having to fire people for what they say on the internet.

    As I was reading the discussion of how Adam Sandler movies kill careers, one magically popped on the TV, Anger Management. I’m not sure I’ve ever even seen that one, but it begins like all of the other Happy Madison atrocities- Sandler as an afro’ed kid in the late-70s, early-80s. Cheap site gag of a person with a disability. That’s as far I got.

    ” House GOP undoes Obama regulation that made it harder for states to drug test welfare recipients ”

    Wow.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Drug testing welfare recipients is a complete waste of money.

      The testing itself is expensive.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        It’s all about punishment,and feeling morally superior.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        Yes, but it drags down someone’s self-worth and makes republicans feel better because they live off the poor’s tears.

        • Brian_Bayless

          Well, the dummies in favor of this probably think the testing is free.

          • Matt_Indeed.

            Probably. They don’t know that the ACA and Obama care are the same thing.

          • Eric Von Erich

            The testing will be contracted out to a company that returns only positive results. That way, no one receives welfare any more.

          • Biscuit!

            The hardliners on this issue also have a certain, er, image of people who receive public aid and are okay with their harassment.

          • chicagodem79

            These are the same people who probably say there’s too much government, get the government out of my business!….then support more government control and bureaucracy when it comes to stuff like this.

          • Biscuit!

            They also think “welfare” is some massive boondoggle riddled with fraud and multi-generation “queens” (WINK WINK). I can tell you from my own childhood, it wasn’t a treat.

          • Brian_Bayless

            The fact people believe welfare recipients are living in some sort of fantasy world due to it is just insane.

          • Biscuit!

            Mom and I got a sweet $200 a month for the half a year she qualified, but no food stamps because we lived with my granddad, whose meager pension put us over the household income limit. It’s a joke. People want to have someone to kick.

          • chicagodem79

            And I’ll give them this, there is a small segment of people who are happy with welfare and don’t want to do better, that’s absolutely true, but it’s not a vast majority like some would lead you to believe.

          • Biscuit!

            Sure, and I’m absolutely in favor of vetting public aid recipients and being sure they need the help. It’s good stewardship of public resources.

      • Biscuit!

        Prisons are also expensive, because dollars to donuts these people won’t be referred to medical treatment programs.

          So is Maher though, so it should be great. A lot of compromise will happen on that show I think.

          • chicagodem79

            I think Maher is a definitely troll on religion (despite the sometimes decent points he makes on it), but at least he tries to bring up facts in his arguments lol.

          • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

            Dude called terrorists brave on Sept 14th, there’s no bigger troll. Milo dreams of that level of incitement.

          • chicagodem79

            Yeah that too lol, no arguments there lol

          • It’s good to get the important thinkers in a room together and just have them calmly hear each other out

          • Brian_Bayless

            Maher calmed down after his religion documentary bombed.

            He seems to just smoke pot 24/7 now but is at least calling out the oversensitive movement from liberals, which is costing them elections.

      • Matt_Indeed.

        I hope you mean both of them.

        • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

          Definitely.

    • Night

      I wish Milo was on the panel. When it’s a top of the show interview, Bill is more respectful. When it’s panel time, things are a bit more heated.

      • Brian_Bayless

        Tomi Lahren was on two weeks ago and got exposed as a lightweight. She added nothing

        • chicagodem79

          She’s a young, blonde, and bad version of Keith Olbermann on the right lol.

          • That’s pretty unfair to Olbermann.

          • chicagodem79

            Yeah, on second thought I’d agree with that….I was more referring to how hyperbolic Keith is sometimes…not necessarily the content of his words.

          • Sure, but Keith is at least grounded in fact. Lahren is in full “ignorant of reality” troll mode.

        • Bruce Chung

          She’s pretty useless other than mildly attractive.

    • Ioan Morris

      Because, as we know, allowing these people a public forum only serves to undermine them and never legitimises their views.

      • Biscuit!

        Don’t worry, it’s not like we’d elect some batshit racist conspiracy loon who has a gold toilet.

    • Death Rollins

      Does the show take place on a gallows? I’d pay for that. For both of them.

    Activision has announced that the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be released for PlayStation 4 on June 30.

    The set will be available for $39.99 and includes Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. According to Activision, the remaster offers redone lighting and animations, newly-recreated cinematics, and support for PlayStation 4 Pro.

    The N. Sane Trilogy also adds new save and checkpoint systems, and “improved” bonus levels and time trials. The soundtrack has also been remastered.

    • chicagodem79

      This is how old school I am, every time I see Activision, I still think of the Atari game Pole Position lol.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Also, the quake series.

    I wonder if Trump will address Russia in this press conference, or if he’ll just take questions from Fox News complimenting his tie or whatever.

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      Nah he’ll probably wear asuit

      • TatR!

        oh jesus marv

    • Matt_Indeed.

      He’ll mention his electoral college victory again.

      • HartKiller_09

        That’s basically his answer for everything. Although he’s onto blaming leaks for everything now. 50/50 chance he says “snitches get stitches” at some point.

  • TatR!

    Reagan’s talk about welfare queens was as awful as anything Donald Trump has said publically. He was a piece of garbage, that man.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      You keep getting sexier.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Thatcher was even worse.

    • Biscuit!

      The person on whom the speech is supposedly based was a pretty interesting con artist. It’s still a total dog whistle. The guy gave a speech on states’ rights just up the road from a town where civil rights workers were famously murdered. He wasn’t secretive.

    • Remember when we did that?

    • riraho

      OK, what did he say about welfare queens? Cause it’s going to have to be pretty bad.

      • Daniel Swinney

        “If you are a welfare queen I will kick you in the pussy.”

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          We had that quote in Social Studies books for years.

    • Daniel Swinney

      Yup

    • Death Rollins

      I wouldn’t say it’s as on-the-surface awful as what Trump has said, but it’s been damaging the national discourse about social programs for like 30 years now.

    Pablo Sandoval says he wants to play eight more years, long enough for his 9-month-old son to see him play.

    So his son will develop eyesight at age 8?

    • Death Rollins

      He intends to blindfold his son for his first eight years while teaching him the ancient martial arts.

    The only thing I remember about FF8 is that CID looks like Robin Williams.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      The only ones I’ve played were FF X, X-2 and XII

      • The Great One

        If you have the time, 6 and 7 are excellent with novel quality stories. Both blow X away in that regard.

    • Death Rollins

      8 had the card game, the gun sword, and the hot teacher.

      • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

        Seriously the gunblade is all I remember from that game

    • I had 2 PS1 copies of FF8 and both of them froze up very quickly….I took it as a sign that it sucked

    • Dr. Bob (Rowlf)

      I played VII, but that’s it.

        Yeah, I played a lot of sports games back in the day.

  • The Great One

    FF9 was fairly unmemorable in hindsight.

    • Death Rollins

      I don’t know, I remember thinking it was a nice throwback to the earlier FFs. But people wanted stuff that reminded them of 7 at that point.

      • The Great One

        There’s nothing about it I really remember. Like less than even 8.

    • Bones

      I think it’s the most underrated, I really enjoyed it

      • Top Three along with IV and VI, usually in 9-6-4 order.

    • I generally enjoy my duck with orange glaze, but this is too much.

    • I really enjoyed getting abilities from leveling up weapons. The rest, well it was fine

  • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

    Man I wanted FF15 to be good so bad, what a terrible game that turned out to be.

    • Bones

      It was that bad?

      I don’t think there’s been a decent one since what X?

      • The Great One

        12 was really fun I think?

      • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

        Yeah that was the last game that wasn’t completely shit on.

        And yeah 15 is bad bad, like GTAV but with grenades that make water spells

    • WWF1987

      I’m only a few hours in. I think they overwhelmed themselves focusing on a giant open world instead of focusing on the story and characters.

      • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

        Apparently there’s a movie they did that explains the story for the game because the game itself makes no effort to do that

        • WWF1987

          The movie is a prequel. It would’ve made more sense to sprinkle the whole movie throughout the game instead of 2 minute cut scenes.

          • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

            It just felt way too GTAV for me in a lot of ways. And GTAV is a stupendous game but…that’s not what I want from Final Fantasy at all

          • WWF1987

            I have a strong dislike for open world games. It makes me feel like it’ll take me 100 hours to play through because I get lost a lot lol.

    • chicagodem79

      It’s unnaturally huge, and given the rest of her shape, I wouldn’t be surprised if it is fake, but who knows lol.

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      Nothing that perfectly shaped like a hat could be real.

    • Death Rollins

      Well how often do you have to push a car that’s out of gas? That’s right, pretty much never. World of fantasy right there.

    Nikki Minaj singing Victoria’s theme was one of the stranger LiveWatch discoveries.

      • DAJackson7

        “{All the things she said
        All the things she said
        Running through my head, running through my head”

      • I loved that theme (and that song in general). I think every CAW I made in Smackdown HCTP had that t.A.T.u. theme haha

        • Death Rollins

          Perfect theme for Bruiser Brody!

          Actually, I could see Chris Colt making that work.

        • Death Rollins

          One of my favorite themes ever, actually. And in an era of pretty weak themes, even the licensed ones.

    • Wasn’t it Trish that she did?

      • The Great One

        I think it was Victoria’s Face theme.

        • You’re right, I just looked it up.

      • Mikey

        Lil Kim was Trish.

        • The Kim-Il Sung to Nicki’s Kim-Jong Il.

      • I think Lil Kim did Trish’s.

    • Mikey

      Yep, it was the musical group she was in with her old dude Safaree Samuels. It wasn’t like this was a year or two before getting big either. That song was from 04 and she didn’t become famous til 09.

    • chicagodem79

      I think it will be interesting (and funny) to watch as time moves out how more and more of the media will start drifting into DGAF territory with him. His believers will never believe the lamestream media anyway, so why bother lol.

      • HartKiller_09

        Ignoring him would bother him more.

        • chicagodem79

          Well, it’s kind of hard to ignore the President when you’re in the business of news lol, but I feel like we’re going to start seeing more and more news people just straight calling him out now, and it will be hilarious lol.

      • Death Rollins

        I wonder if the ratings are ever gonna start dipping for Trump stories. They’re gonna need to keep up the scandals consistently to keep people engaged now that his talking points are getting repetitive.

        • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

          I guess it was the greatest Raw segment in years or something. I don’t know I’m not really sure what The List is, maybe it’s cooler if you’ve got all the back story.

          • OH.. no yeah that … it was absolutely.
            I thought you meant the remix thing I put up

          • Death Rollins

            Agreed. I think it helps to at least know the specifics of their current deal, but even on its own the damn segment’s so well acted and even directed.

          • It bummed Blanche out..

        And there’s probably a whole world of foreign war films I haven’t really seen. But I’d probably throw Battle of Algiers on the list. And though it’s not technically a war film, shout-out to A Man Escaped.

    It’s really not hurting Trump’s screaming about the media being awful when you’ve got Keith Olbermann screaming about American concentration camps.

    • Biscuit!

      One is on GQ’s website, the other is the President.

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      If he’d stick to just bashing the shitty media that created him he’d be my favorite president of all time.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Nobody pays attention to Olbermann.

      • Biscuit!

        He’s the new Saul Alinsky.

      • The Great One

        He’s a hilarious twitter follow lately.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Keith Olbermann is not “the media “. No one gives a fuck about him anymore.

    • That’s like pissing on all of the effective peaceful protests because two anarchists break a bank window. You’re purposefully missing the forest for the trees. Even if you don’t like Olbermann’s take, he doesn’t represent all of the unbiased, informed journalists who are levying valid, factual-based arguments against Trump and his administration.

      • The Great One

        I’m not saying that at all.

        I’m saying that he’s not helping.

        • My mistake. Although I don’t get the hate for Olbermann. Sure, he can be dramatic, but he isn’t telling outright lies and promoting misinformation like Tomi Lahren and his other conservative counterparts.

          • The Great One

            I think he’s turned into exactly that guy.

            He’s been screaming that Trump will start camps for like a week now. He’s Blue Anne Coulter.

          • I guess I just haven’t heard him say anything I disagree with or feel is outside the realm of possibility.

          • The Rabid One

            LOL, he’s becoming the Alex Jones of the Left

          • I actually used to enjoy Alex Jones’ journalism during the Bush administration. He has really gone off the deep end though in recent years with the gay shrimp nonsense and the juiceboxes that are turning our children gay lol.

          The thing Obamacare has going for it is it actually exists, so it’s somewhat better than “the best plan, believe me, it’ll be great”.

            It might actually be better if it didn’t exist.

  • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

    While you can’t “ignore” the President of the United States, you CAN change the way he’s covered. Why interrupt programming for THIS? Just say “the President made remarks” on the evening news tonight and move on, because this is clearly some ego-stroking shit here.

      • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

        True, but they don’t trust the media anyway so why do they care if it covers him? They just assume it’s all lies anyway, right?

        • chicagodem79

          You’re absolutely right, in theory that would be the case, but a lot of his supporters have a unique ability to totally discount what the “lamestream” media says, but still complain he’s not getting the right coverage. It’s truly amazing.

    I honestly can’t remember the last time they did have enough profit to pay out those dividends

    Still, the profits could not cover the annual dividend payment of $37,218,720, roughly 46.5 percent, or $17,306,700, of which went to Vince McMahon. The profits not covering the dividend, meaning the company has had to eat into its cash reserves, has been the case since 2011. Before that, the business, as long as it didn’t collapse creatively, pretty much was lock to cover the dividend once it had been dropped. The change came due to two factors, a formerly heavily money losing movie division, and start-up costs for the network.

    Solaris

    The Thing

    The Empire Strikes Back

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Excellent list.

    • Death Rollins

      Original Solaris?

      And I’d put in Aliens and the first Terminator, as well.

      Also, there’s no movie I love to hate more than 2001, but I get it.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        Both versions of Solaris are great!

        • Death Rollins

          I still gotta see the original. Remake was pretty good, although I don’t have a point of comparison yet.

          • Kenny_Reigns

            They’re very similar.

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        Yep the 1972 one

    • Matt_Indeed.

      Metropolis? Give me a break.

      • Death Rollins

        What’s wrong with Metropolis? (Also, an underrated film: the anime Metropolis based on Tezuka’s comics.)

        • Kenny_Reigns

          The anime Metropolis is GREAT!!!

          • Death Rollins

            Right? Love that movie. Once got really lucky way back when I was working at Dollar Tree: we got in a ton of $1 DVDs and there were some copies of Metropolis. Bought all of them and gave them out to friends.

        • Matt_Indeed.

          The 1927 film is on the best of lists because it makes people look artsy and smart. It’s a cool film, especially for how old it is, but it feels disingenious on a best-of list.
          (That’s just my opinion, Duck, don’t quarter me).

          • Death Rollins

            I mean, that was a sci-fi list, and it’s one of the most influential sci-fi films of all time. It’d be kind of weird not to have it on.

            Also, to add to the list: Death Race 2000, Logan’s Run, and the original Rollerball.

            And wait. I’m not Duck. Do people think I’m Duck?

      OF RETARDATION

  • jobber123

    The WWE paid 36.4 percent tax on profits in 2016. If the tax is dropped to 20 percent, as Trump has proposed, that would have been $8,726,932 in additional profits just by tax savings.

    • Let’s allow large businesses to pay less taxes. That’ll bring the coal jobs back, yep.

      • Biscuit!

        STOP. HATING. MIDDLE. AMERICA.

  • jobber123

    The surprise was hinting of yet another touring promotion with the cruiserweights having their own house shows. Obviously they’d have to run smaller buildings like NXT does, but if that’s the case, on Saturday nights, with a Raw show, a Smackdown show, a 205 Live show and two NXT shows, the WWE could be doing as many as six house shows a night.

    • GoodOldBoz

      How many road agents do they have? I suspect they are going to need many more!!

    • Where is the market for all of this? WWE has never been colder. They are going to completely burn out whatever remaining fan base they have.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        What are you talking about? They just had their highest revenue ever!

        • Death Rollins

          Isn’t that because of their many revenue streams? They’re self-sustaining as a corporate entity, but house show attendance isn’t particularly strong, is it?

          • Kenny_Reigns

            Doesn’t really matter. They have more money coming in than ever.

        • I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. This might work in the short term, but their audience is eroding year after year, and they are gaining exactly 0 new fans along the way. Unless they plan to charge $1,000,000 per ticket for WM43, so the last remaining “Full Sail 6” can chant Aurora Helmsley’s theme during the Volcano Battle Royal, I don’t see how this is sustainable.

          • Volcano Battle Royal? Man, they’re reduced to stealing Matt Hardy’s ideas

      • jobber123

        They are going the other way and will super serve the remaining fans. WWE still has millions of die hard fans who they milk for lots of cash. I can’t stand current wwe and even I sub to the network. They have lots of folks to milk left for now.

        • For now… that’s the key phrase. For now.

          • Death Rollins

            Yeah, oversaturation of a cold product seems risky. Even if they’re purposely trying to compartmentalize their product to make people loyal to specific things, which I’m assuming is to provide more product but prevent burnout among the diehards.

  • Facts

    Whenever Donald Trump is on the tv this is what I hear:

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      What I hear

  • jobber123

    The 2015 “Mania season” gained 511,000 net new subscribers, on 795,000 new subscribers and 284,000 canceled subscribers. In 2016, that gain was only 140,000, with 495,000 new subscribers and 358,000 canceled subscribers. That’s actually worse than it sounds worse in one way and better in another. Worse is that a number of new countries got the network for the first time in early 2016, so that should have inflated those numbers, so they are even worse in comparison. But better is that WWE also offered the network free for WrestleMania, with the idea of getting a ton of people to order for free and then they’d either like it and become regular subscribers or simply forget to cancel. In other words, a lot of the Mania gain actually came roughly a month after Mania.

  • HartKiller_09

      I saw a clip the other day of John Oliver on Colbert’s show, and he actually made a great point. I honestly think a strategy of Trump is to throw SO much stuff out there, it overwhelms everybody and they’ll tire of it, and Oliver made the point of staying vigilant and not getting tired. 4 years of this? It’s gonna be hard….

      • Kenny_Reigns

        John Oliver is THE worst. His show is SO smug and SO condescending…

        • chicagodem79

          I don’t particularly care for his show that much, but he made good points here.

        • Death Rollins

          Oh, I hate that douche. I don’t think he’s wrong on this score, though. Granted, I don’t think it’s Trump’s strategy, but obviously someone like Bannon sees the potential to do that.

        • GoodOldBoz

          Trust me, us Brits don’t like him much either. Well, THIS one doesn’t anyway.

        • His style can be grating at times, but I don’t think it’s smug to make fun of idiots. That’s part of the issue nowadays. People who simply make sense are labeled pretentious elitists.

          • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

            You can’t mock idiots away, though. This election cycle taught us that. So you need a new strategy.

          • Yeah but John Oliver isn’t running for office. He’s producing a comedy show to make liberals laugh. he’s not presenting himself as an unbiased credible journalist. That said, he actually IS more credible than a lot of ‘news sources’ these days.

    On December 31, 2016, the WWE Network had 1,403,000 paying subscribers and 70,000 people who were getting it free. That was 1,032,600 U.S. subscribers and 370,400 outside the U.S. For those wondering how social media correlates with network numbers, roughly 73.6 percent of network subscribers are in the U.S., and 75 to 80 percent of the social media followers are from places outside the U.S.

  • jobber123

    Even though Goldberg seemed to stop terribly declining Raw numbers and they stayed steady the rest of football season at well above the prior record lows that they were hitting much of 2016, the adding PPV shows and the stronger Survivor Series still resulted in a decline of 41,000 subscribers over the three months, as compared to a decline of 16,000 over the same period the prior year. Because of that, even with more subscribers, the network profits dropped, also because of another drop in actual PPV, which fell 39 percent for the year.

    • Vintage

      So how do they fix the sinking profit problem? GIVE AWAY 3 MONTHS FOR FREE, INCLUDING WRESTLEMANIA!

        North American attendance for the year averaged 5,800 for 280 shows, down from 6,000 on 273 events last year.

    NXT events in 2016 generated $6.98 million in revenue. It’s impossible from the material put out to figure out the cost of touring for NXT events but Performance Center expenses, which are believed to include the contracts for NXT talent, was less than $20.4 million (that figure includes all NXT costs plus costs of talent appearances), up from $17.8 million in 2015 and $17.9 million in 2014.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      So, HHH only lost $13 million! He’s a genius! Vince can’t die fast enough!

      • Death Rollins

        Eh, development is presumably always gonna be a loss-leader. I’m impressed they managed to find a way to monetize it. I have no doubt a lot of subscriptions were spurred by NXT’s hot period.

        • Night

          That’s a good point regarding NXT’s hot period.

          • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

            I generally stay away during a hot period…

          • Kenny_Reigns

            I highly doubt NXT’s hot period lead to a single sub when the numbers point to it all being WM based.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          They’re not development anymore. They signed Nakamura to a main eventer main roster contract. That’s not developmental.

          • Death Rollins

            It’s developmental run as a distinct brand (and I’m not trying to use WWE lingo here, NXT is genuinely a brand). I guess the closest comparison would be imprint record labels or film distributors under the umbrella of larger companies. The kind of entity that absorbs losses in order to build smaller acts or introduce the larger audience to up-and-coming acts or foreign films. Signing Nakamura for that money is like when Miramax would buy the rights to a popular foreign film in order to get a decent theatrical/DVD/award show/streaming run out of it. Except in this case, individual acts aren’t money anymore, so they’re signing a guy like that to make the brand more viable (and I really think that the value of NXT is most heavily in getting people to subscribe to the Network or watch on Hulu, which improves their chances of decent streaming contracts. Ticket sales and merch are supplemental), and then eventually use him to refresh the main product. So they intend to get value out of him on different levels, because the difference is everything NXT does is meant to feed into the larger program rather than be an independently profitable entity.

            It’s not traditional developmental. But many of their traditional developmental programs were independent promotions that were just financed in part by the WWF/E. The difference is that NXT is operating on a larger scale, so it can’t be profitable in the minor way that something OVW was on its own. The tradeoff to spending more is getting more control and having your rookies in front of larger crowds and in the ring with veterans, so they run it as a brand to mitigate the costs. Whether that actually costs them more, I’m not sure, but since the Network is at the core of their strategy, I think there’s value there unaccounted for in the revenue/cost reports.

        To be honest in 08 and 09, Obama kept pointing back at W for the economy and economy. But he did have to. But by 11, it got tiresome and he clamped it down quite a bit.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          W was also a former president. Hillary was Sec of State 4 years ago…

        • I actually don’t think he went at Bush enough. That actually would have been completely justified. He inherited a dumpster fire.

  • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

    Now he’s saying Montreal was definitely a work.

    • Night

      FINALLY, something I can agree with him on!

  • Brian_Bayless

    Look, I’ve worked in psychology for 12 years and studied abnormal human behavior daily and trump is the most narcissistic person I’ve ever seen.

    • Bones

      Even worse than the Narcissist Lex Luger?

      • Brian_Bayless

        Yes

        • cultstatus

          But Lex is the bigger patriot.

          • The Rabid One

            And a forearm of steel

    • The Rabid One

      Even more narcissistic than selfie obsessed Russian models hanging on to a building for dear life.

    • Night

      The thing is, people knew that about him FOREVER. I remember journalists talking about his megalomania in the 80s!

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I honestly don’t think there’s been enough serious discussion on his mental health.

      • Kenny_Reigns

        There shouldn’t be. It would all be speculation.

        • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

          Not if you’re watching TV right now!

          Sane people don’t do this shit.

        • chicagodem79

          I’m kind of torn on that because you are right, it’s all speculation, but damn it’s showing all the signs…..I think it’s fair to bring up the question.

        • Biscuit!

          The discussion should be with government-assigned doctors.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Did you see where the guy who wrote the DSM entry on narcissism said he’s a narcissist?? It’s pretty awesome.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    “Tell me, Future Boy, who’s the President of the United States in 2017?”
    “Donald Trump”
    “DONALD TRUMP?! THE BUSINESSMAN?!”

  • Mr. Money On The Table

    This is amazing

  • Brian_Bayless

    This press conference is an universal embarrassment.

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      And the American Universe is tuning in apparently

    • Biscuit!

      For you because you watched it lol cuck.

        I have never watched a man fuck my country so vigorously.

        • Biscuit!

          Don’t watch soccer.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    It’s funny that the makers of Back to the Future 2 based Alt-1985 Biff on Donald Trump, and that;s basically Trump now.

    I just want to say one thing…..God Bless America.

    • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

      So this is Doc Brown’s fault?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        Marty’s. He took the almanac.

        • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

          But if Doc hadn’t built the damn thing in the first place, none of this would be happening.

  • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

    This is what coke addicts do, you know.

    Just saying.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Like her mother Padme, she lost the will to live.

  • Jackson Smith

    President Snowflake is at full ramble mode, I can’t even follow this anymore.

    You’ll all laugh when he gets the hook and Pence gets the job.

    • Brian_Bayless

      No matter what, the GOP will get their way.

      Trump with the code for the nukes is a recipe for disaster

    • Biscuit!

      At this point, yes. One the GOP will have a riotous Trump faction to deal with and Pence for all his faults isn’t in bed with Russia. Plus he knows how bills become law.

      • Bones

        I wouldn’t want to be one of “the gays” if that happens. I’m tired of these regressive bible thumping idiots.

        • Biscuit!

          He’d be the leader of a crippled Party. Curtailing gay rights wouldn’t be on the docket.

  • jobber123

    Meltzer gave Orton vs Harper 3.75 stars and the EC match 4.5 stars

    • Darren Jowalsen

      I really liked the Orton-Harper match, a lot of people were dumping on it in the live thread for some reason.

      • Vintage

        I loved Harper’s work a lot in this match. He’s got serious potential.

    • Biff Thanks You, Nick Demola

      Smudge high on Orton/Harper IMO, but it’s OK.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      I still haven’t seen the show, so I’ll take his word for it

    • The Great One

      Orton dragged the best match out of Harper I’ve seen. He didn’t have to kill himself for snowflakes like the Dolph match either.

      • Vintage

        You weren’t here for the live thread. The consensus here was that Orton was horrible.

        • The Great One

          Shocking.

          And yet Harper has never had a better match in WWE lol

  • HartKiller_09

    YOU TWEETED YOURSELF IT HAD TO BE DONE QUICKLY!

  • Biff Thanks You, Nick Demola

    Donald Trump says dumb shit, News at 11.

    It would be more newsworthy if he’d been coherent.

    • Brian_Bayless

      Oh, he’s cracking here. Just in full attack and tangent mode

  • What’s in the box?!

    Trump is on drugs, right? Either that, or he’s a psychotic

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Coke. I bet he has a Tony Montana mountain of coke on the Oval Office desk every night.

        Mojo – Hawkins was fine. Nothing special, but an opener that gave Mojo a win.

    I’m still not sure what people intend to get by seeing Trump’s tax returns.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      That he’s a millionaire who pretends to be a billionaire. For me, it’s just to put another dent in his facade.

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        … and what will that *do* ? That’s always my main thing… what happens after that? No-one’s mind is changed.

        • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

          Just to rile him up more. The screws need to be put to him every which way; what I don’t want is for the climate to get complacent that he can feel like he’s being hero-worship. He should be on the defense every fucking day, whatever it is.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Don’t you want your leaders to be as open and transparent as possible?

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        I care about his tax returns exactly the same amount as I care about any tax returns that aren’t mine… zero.

        • chicagodem79

          Just the mere fact that he continues to evade this shows me he has something to hide, that’s troubling to me.

      • Because past administrations have been SO OPEN AND TRANSPARENT.

        Short of turning the White House into the proverbial glass house, that does not exist, nor should it in quite a few circumstances.

        The problems happen when stuff that needs to be transparent gets hidden away, whether it be unrelated amendments to bills, executive privilege, or random regulations.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      Not voting for Clinton doesn’t mean you supported Trump. Maybe if Hillary and the press didn’t act like she had it in the bag, more people would have voted for her.

    • YES. This is fun.

      • … not Trump’s actual Presidency so far, that’s been mostly boring. I’m referring to the absolute “WE ALL GONNA FUCKIN’ DIE!”-level of sheer terror and panic that’s infected so many usually sane people.

  • Bones

    Hey I know! Instead of proposing ideas and policies and articulating them to the public/people who could or would vote for Trump, let’s call them all retards, racists, dipshits and low lives.

    That surely won’t get under anyone’s skin.

    • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

      It worked so well, let’s double down!

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Holy strawman, dude

    • Obviously that was not a smart strategy. I would like to think the Democrats will actually learn from this and rethink not only their approach, but who their “base” actually is. But I know we’re just getting Cory Booker in 2020 to appease Big Pharma/Wall Street and suburban soccer moms.

    • chicagodem79

      So here’s my deal,

      I get frustrated with this very topic because who are we talking to here? I try to be as open and listen as much as possible to people who disagree with me, but if someone just blatantly believes lies and things that aren’t true, how do you get to someone like that? When do you call out someone like that who doesn’t want to bother in constructive dialog?

      • Spread lies about him

      • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

        I don’t know, but unless you take away their vote they get a voice, too. So you either try and reason with them OR get enough sane folks to come out and counteract their vote.

        • And this doesn’t do it, this gets even more sane voters to either go third party or not vote at all.

      • Bones

        Oh there’s no way you can influence and get through to everyone.

        But they could have gotten through to more in places like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin.

        • chicagodem79

          And that’s the rub, Trump ran on a campaign promising things he knows he can’t deliver, but it sounds good…and it worked. That’s where I think things will eventually turn, but we’re going to have to go through pain to get to it.

          • Bones

            Oh if rust belt folks think their manufacturing jobs are coming back I have ocean front property in Nebraska to sell you.

            Him railing against NAFTA and whatnot did score a lot of points for him.

          • Hell, he promised things! Hilary never promised anything except it was her destiny to win!

          • chicagodem79

            We could have a whole other 2,000 comment discussion on the Hillary campaign’s failures, but that’s water under the bridge now lol.

          What I’m saying is that they don’t listen regardless, they didn’t listen to Obama when he tried to be measured and reason with people, so what makes anybody think they would be receptive to that strategy?

          • Devin Harris

            I’m saying the object of the game is to find something that works like Trump did. Dems try the same two things and then get frustrated. Then double down on those same two things and we just keep repeating

  • GoodOldBoz

    I’m running my first marathon this year. I will probably complete it in less time than Wrestlemania will last.

    • TatR!

      This is a good target

      • TatR!

        running a marathon definitely less exhausting than watching mania 32

        • GoodOldBoz

          This year’s pre-show will probably be longer still…

  • How long has this press conference been going on?

    • Kenny_Reigns

      2 hours?

    • Jackson Smith

      An hour

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      It’s always been this. It’s Trump press conferences all the way down.

  • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

    I think Trump just told that lady to cash him outside

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Square Saltine here…..Um…..What?

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        How bow dah?

        • Mr. Money On The Table

          Werd.

      • Diddly

        Teenager goes on Dr Phil a few weeks ago and tells people to “catch me outside, how about that.” However, her “thug accent” caused the Internet to interpret it as “Cash Me Ousside, How Bow Dah.” It’s a meme running on about a week left to live.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    The President appears to have exposed his genitals, and is now singing about The Camptown Ladies…

    • That would probably have been more enlightening than anything in the actual press conference.

      Not to mention entertaining.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    “I was elected to LEAD, not to READ”

    • Bones

      Dexter Manley’s campaign slogan?

    • Did he say that or is that a pure Simpsons quote?

      • Diddly

        Arnold Schwarzenegger said it in the Simpsons Movie

        • I know that, but the way this press conference has been going I wouldn’t put it past Trump to say that

        • GoodOldBoz

          Funny gag – and there sure weren’t many of those in the film- but I really wish he had been Rainier Wolfcastle. Still, gotta explain The Funny to those casuals I guess.

          “That’s the joke”

      • The Rabid One

        Nancy Pelosi said that before passing ACA

    • Napoleon Blownapart

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      Don’t let hogan see that.

  • Devin Harris

    Has Trump said, “he’s spent more money on spilled booze” yet?

    • Brian_Bayless

      He called himself the least anti Semitic person we will ever meet

      • Which implies that he is still on some level anti Semitic lol.

        • chicagodem79

          Which, I don’t know if he actually is, but he literally did not comprehend the words he was spitting out….truly amazing.

  • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

    AWWW SHIT IT’S TIME FOR A SITUATION WOLF

  • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

    Anyway, that little window into the end of the world was fun. What do you guys think of Bayley’s tits?

    • Mr. Money On The Table

      Meh.

    • Diddly

      She’s 9

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      Natural 36D, so ******

      • Diddly

        Aaron Solo goin’ in solo on that

      • Matt_Indeed.

        How do you know her cup size?

        • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

          I 100% believe him too lol

          • Matt_Indeed.

            What a weirdo. lol

        • It is Bonzai….

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      BoD: Much hotter than Kate Upton.

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        I will be the first to sign on that. Crazy body + cute face.

      • Bones

        Just no

    • chicagodem79

      ****1/4

    • Miko363

      That random Friday where a discussion about Bayley devolved into legitimate accusations of pedophilia was a great day on the BoD.

      • PATRICKisLEGEND

        That’s like every Friday around this hole.

  • Daniel Swinney

    Cena should have cut a promo decrying the “you deserve it” chants for Naomi.

    • Miko363

      Last time I checked she hasn’t beaten me, so she hasn’t proven anything!

  • I’ve heard Macho Man promos that made more sense than this press conference.

    • mike

      Hopefully he’ll only be president for cuppa coffee, cuppa coffee, yeah…

    • GoodOldBoz

      And even he spent at least *some* time “thinkin’, thinkin’ “…

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    YOU DETEST THE FACT THAT I HAVE MORE GOLD BUILDINGS THAN MOST OF YOU HAVE FRIENDS! I GOT THE WHITE HOUSE ON THE BIG SIDE OF TOWN!

  • jobber123

    So it sounds like IRL Andre was 6’9″ 370. There are some NFL linemen about that size.

    • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

      FAKE NEWS, PAL!

  • HartKiller_09

    If we keep ragging on Trump he might call out the Blog on twitter.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust bring it, BITCH

    • Diddly

      Blog of Doom is a sad website! 3000 comments a day and all made by losers! NPP posters are better! Sad!

      • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

        TNAMecca is a great site, tremendous, a real bigly site.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    Let me say it yeah letmesayitoutloud AND LET ME POINT TO THE COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR DECISION, YEAH

  • The Great One

    I’m glad I live in Bernieland where everybody’s less screamy.

    • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

      I live in SF so I’m pretty well bunkered in a diverse area. I feel for my friend in Missouri.

      • The Rabid One

        You Richer!!!!

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      Everyone’s already forgotten about this around here, we’re back to hating loggers because of rare owls or something

      • The Great One

        We aren’t allowed to dam rivers anymore because of the danger to fish. The town of Waterbury Vt floods every year because of this.

    • Matt_Indeed.

      My favorite part is where you believe you’re immune and it won’t soon grow towards you.

      • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

        The thing is, even if it does, I’m still white so…

        • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

          The most honest thing said here today.

          • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

            I mean really, oh my god what if crazy white people take everything over?

            I’ll just be quiet…and white lol

        • Devin Harris

          Marv’s gonna make me his personal gardner. WOOOOOOOOOO!

          • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

            I have Mexicans for that, thanks.

        • Kenny_Reigns

          And a man! And straight! You have it made!

        • Matt_Indeed.

          And male!

      • The Great One

        We are very upset up here as we were planning on integrating the Syrian refugees into the economy like we did the Bosnians in the 90s.

        We just handle it in a more orderly manner then randomly screaming while running in circles.

  • Napoleon Blownapart

    “A team of scientists has proposed building 10 million machines to help refreeze the Arctic ”

    Great infrastructure program to create jobs.

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    But Donald, should something happen, you run out of gas, and all those Trumpamaniacs runs out of gas….JUST HANG ON TO THE LARGEST BACK IN THE WORLD, AND I’LL DOGPADDLE, BACKSTROKE, ALL OF YOU TO SAFETY

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      Fuck. I have to make that gif now.

  • jobber123

    The NJPW axs show did 300k viewers for the bosj part 1 show last Friday (Volador Jr vs Ospreay was the big match) and TNA did 252k. Pop TV is in 78 million homes. AXS is in 44 million.

    • Biscuit!

      Also NJPW is on Friday. Impressive.

  • Mick

    Well guys, since we’ll have a nuclear war before next year, its been fun.

    • Napoleon Blownapart

      If I survive a nuclear war, at least I’ll be able to live out my Fallout fantasies.

      • jobber123

        Good point. That game should have prepared some of us for the near future!

    • Biscuit!

      Thanks, MSNBC

      • Napoleon Blownapart

        I’m really pissed at their rightward shift. Stopped watching ages ago because of it.

    • PATRICKisLEGEND

      Or, you know… nothing.

  • jobber123

    Corey Graves kid brother is doing a pro Trump gimmick in cmll now

    • The Rabid One

      Can’t do that in the big time, you may end up scaring the soccer moms who will send nasty notes to Vince for you actually being a heel.

      • Vintage

        Might also take off with the south.

      • Biscuit!

        Also Vince does it

      • Comdukakis

        they have soccer moms in Mexico like the way we think of soccer moms?

        • In Mexico, they just call them “moms.”

          • Comdukakis

            do they have AJ styles haircuts?

        • The Rabid One

          You haven’t seen Soccer moms until you get to Mexico.

    • The Great One

      Sam Adonis kind of sucks.

      • jobber123

        I haven’t seen him really, but it sounds like a massive rip off of Brian Cages gimmick in aaa

        • The Great One

          A half assed one too.

          He doesn’t make Super Viernes very often.

    • Diddly

      I remember when that one guy in the failed MTV Lucha promotion was the son of Jan Brewer

  • Diddly

    Dammit now I’m imagining Donald Trump on Twitter challenging Matt Maynard Adams to a “kitana” fight

    • Nicki Marvnaj – #47

      Definitely has that Black Eyed Peas song playing in the background

    • Uncle Lovematic Grampa X

      Newest member of the Cabinet?

      • Diddly

        In house catering for meetings!

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    In Kentucky, the voters call me ‘cool’! In Ohio, the voters call me ‘The Donald’! And everyone else in America just say, “Aw, there goes The Man!”

  • Bonzai <3 Felicity S&Moak

    AND ON THE SUBJECT OF THOSE RUSSIAN CONTACTS — don’t wrap me up!

  • GoodOldBoz

    Today in Callers To The PwTorch Livecast Are Fucking Idiots: WWE should put an audio-only feed on the Network for people travelling during PPVs, so as to save their mobile data.

    • jobber123

      • GoodOldBoz

        Precisely

    • jobber123

      Who are the people that call these shows!??! The WOL ones make me crazy too.

      • Diddly

        “This is Jim from Virginia!”

        • jobber123

          That guy is the world’s biggest women’s wrestling fan. I want to know how he makes every show???

      • GoodOldBoz

        95% of them are utter batshit. Their calls are usually one of four things:

        1) why don’t WWE sign [Evolve midcarder]?!
        2) when will [anybody] turn face/heel (sadly, Keller himself seems to encourage this one)
        3) do you think [x/y/z] will be in The Hall Of Fame
        4)ludicrous booking idea which magically somehow culminates in their favourite wrestler winning the world title

    • Vintage

      You could depend on the detailed play-by-play calls from Michael C…BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

      • GoodOldBoz

        It’s just like being there !

    • chicagodem79

      I miss Radio WWF lol.

      • GoodOldBoz

        Yep I thought of this too

  • jobber123

    I still think RoHs cabinet is worse than Trump’s.

    • JBL’s Cabinet was even worse.

    • Kenny_Reigns

      I still like Kenny King.

  • The G*d D*mn John Petrie

    Utterly surreal to watch the panel on CNN discuss the mental instability of the President…

    • HartKiller_09

      They seem at a loss for words. Like just shocked at what they just saw.

  • PATRICKisLEGEND

    When Obama got elected, my friend’s mother in law was furious. Continuously saying, “He’s a socialist. He’s going to take away our choices! We’ll no longer have the option to pick what we want on anything!”

    You all sound like her. She can’t even pump her own gas. Congrats. You’re her now.

    • Comdukakis

      little bit different
