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.

The SmarK Rant for WWF Royal Rumble 2000–01.23.00

The SmarK Rant for WWF Royal Rumble 2000 – 01.23.00

[Originally written 03.05.19]

Live from Madison Square Garden, drawing a sellout of 19,000 and a gate of $1.1 million, which made it one of the highest drawing shows in wrestling history. Oddly, the buyrate was down from 1999, with 590K buys instead of 620K from the year before.

Your hosts are Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler

Tuesday Night Thread

It’s Tuesday night!

It occurs to me that I might be putting this up early because Daylight Savings Time isn’t a thing in Saskatchewan and my times are all messed up again, as they are twice a year.  Probably why I was getting worried about Brian missing the Daily News Update this morning, too.  Damn farmers!

Hopefully WWE does a tribute to King Kong Bundy tonight on Smackdown and maybe even puts him in the Hall of Fame, since there’s still plenty of time to do so.

For the moment, enjoy two of his greatest memories for me:  Injuring Hulk Hogan before WM2 and then elbowdropping a midget at WM3.

Strong Style Saturday Thread

It’s a quiet Saturday in the wrestling world, and I’m going couch shopping today!  Grown up life!

Madison Rayne is going back to Impact for whatever reason.

Apparently Dana Warrior and Brother Love will be more like consultants than full creative team members.

The main event of Fastlane, which is next week mind you, will be some form of the Shield v.  Baron Corbin’s team of goobers but we don’t really know what exact combination or how they’ll get there.  But, you know, the show is next week in case you’re really excited about it.

UFC tonight with Jon Jones squashing the everloving fuck out of Anthony Smith as the main event.  That should be fun.

Have a great day!

The SmarK Rant for WCW Monday Nitro–08.25.97

The SmarK Rant for WCW Monday Nitro – 08.25.97

Here’s another one I’ve been waiting for a while to roll around!

Live from Columbia, SC, drawing yet another record-breaking gate of 8058, an all-time record for the city. It just goes to show how inept the promotion for the Clash was, because that show only did about 4000 people during this hot streak where they were selling out arenas with ease week after week.
