Yesterday, I looked at five comics that I enjoyed during 2015. Click on the link here if you’re interested. I wanted to throw in a few more recommendations of books I enjoyed before we close out the year tonight.
Hopefully you or some of the great commenters this board brings together can answer my question: Why were Ken Shamrock and Goldberg mostly booed by Canadian fans whenever WWF & WCW would tour?
Maybe I'm mis-remembering things but it always seemed like the Canucks strongly disliked both guys.
So I was playing Alter Ego today. It’s a free, crazy, text-adventure life simulator thing that has a TON of cool little details packed into it and is festively written. It was actually made by a team of psychologists and is pretty damn nuts. I essentially did all the things I normally wouldn’t and ended up geting kidnapped and murdered around the age of 13.
Shit’s fucked up.
So – lets talk about alternate timelines and extended universes.
What are your favorite non-canonical stories in comic books, film, and TV? Have a special fondness for the Firefly Comics even though they came out after the show? Read Shadows of The Empire? Tackle Alter Ego and have a life altering experience? Share below!
Oh! And speaking of Bizarro worlds, 9 Innings: Pro Baseball 2014 is finally updated! Huzzah! It’s pretty much the best baseball game out there if you don’t own a PS4 or Vita. Quick games, deep strategy, real players, collectable cards – it’s awesome! It even has a Franchise mode!
Immediate plans were winning the ECW title at that PPV, and then he was going to be phased into a role as a trainer and agent. Obviously with the years of surgeries and injuries, WWE and Benoit himself had to know that his time was coming to an end one way or another. You could make a pretty strong argument, and I recall doing so at the time, that he should have been moved into that part-timer role long before that even for his own good. That being said, given what we know about his personality, I don't feel like he'd make that kind of transition as gracefully as someone like William Regal has done, because he was such a hyper-competitive guy. But especially with the Wellness Policy weeding out medical problems like it was, I think his in-ring WWE career would have come to an end, whether or not by his own choice, very soon after that last title win. I don't know whether they would have put him in the Hall, but he would have been as good a choice as anyone.
