The SmarK Rant for WWF Sunday Night Heat–04.04.99

The SmarK Rant for WWF Sunday Night Heat – 04.04.99

I know. This show and myself have a complex and heated relationship. I hate watching it, and it doesn’t even do particularly impressive numbers on the blog. But it’s quick and easy to recap and now that I’ve started, I only have to make it to July and then it’s DONE! At least as far as the Network is concerned.

Strong Style Saturday Thread – 03.16.19

ROH had a PPV last night, featuring Jay Lethal retaining his title against Matt Taven in a 60 minute draw, and Brody King & PCO winning the tag titles from the Briscoes in an ECW-style brawl to set up a title v. title match against the Guerrillas of Destiny at the MSG show.

I guess that since today is 3/16 you should go give someone a Stunner?

Enjoy your Saturday, and here’s a list from WWE…

The SmarK Rant for Clash of the Champions XXX (January 1995)

Oh god, THIS show.

The People Vs. Adam Curry (aka Save the Drama for Your Llama)

Look, I’m not one to deny someone the pleasure of posting on my blog and increasing my ad revenue, but I had other complaints about the behavior and language used by Matthew Maynard Adams / Adam Curry besides the people directly involved in the banning incident.  I didn’t even ban him, I don’t particularly care about the stuff in the night threads, which we all know.  So I leave his fate in the hands of people who are actually invested in it.  Namely, not me.

We all gonna act like Shannon Moore isn’t a child abuser?

 

Look, you know that kid is gonna be bragging about it at school the next day.  Plus he no-sold it anyway and popped right back up like Hawk.  He’s got NO future in THIS BUSINESS.
