Happy Friday Everyone!

I’ve given up on FIFA 22 for the time being. They seemed to have put as much thought into Career Mode as WWE has with this Queen of the Ring tournament. Back to Rocket League for my footy fix I guess.

Belt The Hangman! (I’ll be saying this a lot within the next few weeks I think)

Happy Thursday Everyone!

No Dynamite on Wednesday makes Mike go something, something

But yeah, the weekend can’t come soon enough when it comes to the Rampage/Dynamite combo for me. Danielson Vs Suzuki!!!

I recently wrote an article for Gaming Respawn where I looked at five wrestlers you wouldn’t want to play as in wrestling games. Please find the link below if you fancy giving it a read

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Writing this one on Monday night. Been playing a bit of the new FIFA game, and I have to ask whether anyone else on PS4 keeps experiencing periods of slowdown when they play the game offline? On more than one occasion it’s happened in Career Mode and it almost led to me conceding a goal at one stage. Shout out if this is a common thing or not.

Happy Monday Everyone!

I’m unsure how to feel about the new Bond movie to be honest. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t especially like it either. What struck me actually was just how much it felt like a Video Game when it game to the way it was structured, with cut scenes piecing together all of the action/gameplay sections. I don’t know if that’s a comment on the movie itself or a comment on how much AAA Video Games try to copy movies these days.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I’m thinking of giving SkateBIRD a go on the Switch, if only because my sister recently got me a Nintendo voucher and it looks wacky enough that I might actually enjoy it. I know it’s received mixed reviews for the most part. If you’ve played it then please comment below.

Konami’s most recent footy game is apparently an absolute disaster. It’s so Konami that the one game series that they hadn’t yet run into the ground in PES has now been ruined too, because Konami is the worst.

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Everton got a very creditable point away at Man United yesterday and I’m starting to feel ever so slightly better, so thus far the weekend has been a mild success.

Not been able to catch any G1 this year but I hear some of the matches have been excellent, so I might go back and watch some of them down the line.

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I’m bunged up with a bit of a cold at the moment, so I’ll be taking it easy this weekend. I’ve done a test and it came back negative, so I don’t think I’ve bought a ticket to the Backstreet Boys Reunion Tour, but I’ll stay in for the next couple of days anyway just as a precaution.

I managed to catch Rampage and I enjoyed it. What I like about it as a show is that they don’t try and cram too much into it. They have an hour to work with and they produce and hours’ worth of content. It’s very different from when TNA only had an hour for Impact and yet still tried to book two hours’ worth of stuff anyway.

Pinch, Punch, First of the Month!

I’ve just recently realised that a new Baki is up on UK Netflix. No idea how long it’s been there (I’m thinking a month or so) but I’ll probably binge it over the next few days. It’s not like I watch a tonne of anime or anything like that, but Baki is always something I’ll go out of my way to see because it’s just so darn nutty

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Writing this Wednesday night whilst Barcelona are potentially going to lose to Benfica for only the second time in their history. My heart aches for Ronald Koeman, the moon faced plum.

Up early for work tomorrow but I’ll try and get up a bit earlier than usual so that I can catch some of Dynamite before I have to head out.

RIP Ryan Sakoda

https://cultaholic.com/posts/former-wwe-wrestler-ryan-sakoda-passes-away

I remember being really interested by that Tajiri, Sakoda and Akio stable on Smackdown and was disappointed when Tajiri got moved to Raw and it never really went anywhere.

Thoughts with Sakoda’s friends and family at this sad time

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

I’m writing this Monday night, so if Bobby Lashley is WWE Champion again by the time you read this just know that we were still living in the era of Big E when this was written, and it was an era I fully approved of. Lashley was pretty darn good as Champion, but I’m thinking it’s too soon for Big E to lose so hopefully he doesn’t.

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I had pizza last night and it was a magical experience. Can’t beat The ‘Za!!

I’m off to Villa Park today to see if Everton can keep their good start to season going. Aston Villa is always one of my favourite away days as it’s pretty easy to get to, there’s free parking in walking distance from the ground, and Villa Park itself is one of the nicer and more historic stadiums in all of English football. I just hope The Toffees leave Birmingham with the 3 points.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Caught some of the Dark Side of the Ring “Plane Ride From Hell” episode, and all I can say is that I feel terrible for the poor flight crew that had to deal with all of that stuff going on. I know some like to romanticise the old days of how wrestlers were all wild men who got up to craziness (and indeed it does still go on today to a certain extent) but I think the Plane Ride is a great example of what happens when stuff like that is allowed to get way too out of hand. Wrestlers going to their hotel rooms to play Xbox is infinitely preferable to them getting smashed and then running around naked in my opinion, even it is more “boring” than what wrestlers used to get up to with more regularity in the “good old days”

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Found out today that I’ll finally be heading back to the office after a LONG time of working at home, so these updates might not be quite as detailed from next week regards news and whatnot, but I’ll still make sure to get a thread up every day. I’m quite relieved to be honest as the lack of human interaction was becoming a genuine bummer recently.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Pretty rubbish game last night for the most part, although I personally enjoyed the 10 minutes where Everton were good. That Townsend goal was something else and should really be in the conversation for Goal of the Month. Absolute blammo!

Won’t spoil Raw, and to be fair I haven’t watched it, but it sounds like you might want to check out Thomas’ review.
