Saturday Night Fight Thread

TONIGHT!  It’s Impact Wrestling’s Hard to Kill PPV, featuring Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers teaming up against Rich Swann, Moose and Chris Sabin.  Alex Shelley has to miss the show for mysterious reasons that he assures us is not because of Covid.  Should you wish to order the show on Fite.TV, I always appreciate it if you do it through my affiliate link so I get a piece of the action:

UFC had a show on ABC earlier today, although I didn’t watch it.

Tomorrow and the next day, it’s time to finally do THE CROCKETT CUP 86 after putting it off for a year and a half now.  Tomorrow morning is the first two rounds, totaling half of the runtime on the Network version, and then Monday morning will be the remaining two hours with the quarterfinals through finals.

WandaVision was…interesting.  I’m really intrigued to find out what the hell’s going on and I’ll continue watching.

Have a great night!

Daily News Update – January 16, 2021

Oh man, payday yesterday.  Went to Costco and bought ALL OF THE THINGS.  Do I NEED a giant bag of breakfast burritos?  I dunno.  But better to have it.  You know, just in case.

My new favorite thread from Twitter:  Taking whatever your favorite quote from the Star Wars movies is, and adding “…you piece of shit” at the end.  IT WORKS EVERY TIME.

WWE Talent Frustrated by Piped In Crowd Noise

Yeah, well, I’m frustrated by the shitty pandemic that means we can’t have fans, but it is what it is.

The Fiend v. Randy Orton May Still Take Place at Royal Rumble!

I guess Orton forgot to stub him out like a cigarette afterwards so he’s still alive.

The Wednesday Night IMPEACHMENT Thread

Well kiss another week of ratings goodbye probably.  Unless people are tired of watching CNN for the next few hours.

I got my 10 year old kid her own cell phone plan today.  THAT didn’t make me feel incredibly old or anything.

TONIGHT!  Dynamite will hopefully not see Chris Jericho infect anyone with his stupidity, plus Darby Allin defends the TNT title against Brian Cage.

NXT is advertising Shotzi Blackheart v. Candice LaRae and more on the Dusty Classic tournament.

One of my Patrons requested more classic JCP episodes of World Championship Wrestling, so let’s pick things up again in 1987 where we left off last time.

Hopefully I can carry on after having the illusion of the stunt granny shattered earlier in the day.

Good evening!

Tonight we have another batch of match with AEW Dark:

As well TNA has Impact which I’m kinda over now.  But here’s a commercial for their PPV this Saturday, which features Kenny Omega in the main event!

RAW was down pretty hard against college football, and a bunch of people besides Drew McIntyre are out with the ‘rona as well.

Have a tremendous and beautiful evening.


Daily News Update – January 12, 2021

Watched Death to 2020 on Netflix last night. That one really summed up everything. Also the History of Swear Words is a short and fun watch as well.

Saturday Night Fight Thread

Um, well, there’s not actually a UFC going on this weekend, so I guess it’s not really a fight thread.

There’s also not any notable pro wrestling events that I’m aware of.  So really it’s a nice relaxing weekend off, I guess.

I’m making fried leftover spaghetti for supper.  That’s something I guess?  How’s YOUR supper?

I believe tonight’s rant will be Saturday Night’s Main Event 18 with Andre v. Savage.

Man Twitter is a lot more boring without all the ring wing extremist morons on there now.  What’s even the point anymore?

Have a great night.
