Rays-Red Sox tonight, then I'm gonna check out some British sci-fi flick called Attack the Block.Also, sushi is over-rated.
Hell there's a UFC even tonight? I was a big MMA fan, but it all seems too watered down now.
I think it's fine but nothing special.
Anyone watching a PPV on the Network tonight?
Spurs wrap it up tonight! C'mon guys!
I might in lieu of somehow jinxing my team by watching them live.I'm one of those guys sometimes.
I'm probably going to go out and get shitplowed...doing that where I live is a double negative.
Double-header. There was an afternoon card from Germany I think (Mousasi vs. Munoz). Card was dreadful but I hit all my bets so I'm in a good mood.Night show is the TUF Brazil finale, on Fox Sports 1 in half an hour.It's free MMA, can't complain.
Just got back from the Tribe game. Sweet victory.
I want to do WM19. Just throwing that out there.
I'm going to try to watch Summerslam 99', the network was down on everything except my phone last night.
I can't either...but way too many events and no idea when in the hell they are. I have a feeling Gegard got wrestlefucked.
You in Pittsburgh?
Why didn't the fans rally behind Chavo Guerrero when Kane destroyed him in eight seconds for the title at Wrestlemania?
Hmm I may try that. Don't remember anything outside of the main event and Rock-Billy Gunn
Jobber was raving about it.
Went the other way. Munoz got trashed in the 1st. It was the real Mousasi this afternoon.
Aviles was a miracle worker today. 3 hits, one the game winner.
Fans =/= Chavo
About an hour and 15 north
Yeah, I'll do one.
Lol good...I've always liked Mousasi
Watching last year's Payback before I start making dinner. I did absolutely nothing today after I got home from the gym.
Chavo had some sweet attire though at that Mania.
Gotcha. I'm at Cleveland but have some buddies there.
Absolutely no one cared about Chavo, since no one ever gave us any reason to care about Chavo.
Tessmacher and Robbie E are going to be on Amazing Race.
I didn't do much either. Went to the gym, destroyed a bird's nest, then went to the Indians game.You worried about your Yanks?
Alright we got Cumpton against Ryu from Street Fighter in LA
Tessmacher's ass may be the only reason to ever watch the Amazing Race.
I want to see Duncan get another ring, but I think it's going seven.
TEW13 booking success continues, as now I am about to steal the SWF's version of the Young Bucks, except with less attitude and more psychology. And the SWF let them go without even a reup contract offer. Who says the CVerse ain't realistic?
I have never seen a good Chavo match that didn't include Eddie.
I've seen it too many times.
His matches with Punk were passable.
You ever had the Catch-22 of a pretty decent job but shitty area?
He was average. Very average.
TWO UFC shows today? LOL wow they are really oversaturating.
So what's the PPV?
I like sushi quite a bit, which surprised the hell out of me the first time I tried it. I definitely wouldn't strike most people as the sushi type.
Mania 19, Summerslam '99 were the two suggested. I'd watch either though to be honest....
It makes zero sense and looking at the schedule they're going to do it several more times this year.WHY?
Beach Blast 92.
Eh. It's still early in the season. The continued injury attack is frustrating, but I'll give it another month or so before I get really concerned. There's no way the Jays don't cycle down a bit in the next few weeks. Plus, the entirety of the AL East has been horrendous. I didn't think the Yanks would win the Series this year, so I'm not as invested as I was a few seasons ago. I just want them to finish ahead of the Red Sox.
Can on can violence?
Wonder if they'll hype TNA? Or at least show footage if they're billed as pro wrestlers at least?
Just curious since I've been out of touch: Is Ronda Rousey a proven draw at this point?
Incredibly average, he's a Villano with a last name.
Somehow, going to TNA made me loathe him. I went from not giving a shit about him to absolutely hating him in a handful of appearances.
Every team in the East has been inconsistent. I agree with you 100% that the Jays aren't going to last. Shocked at how bad the Rays have been doing. I'm going to see the Red Sox play the Indians on Tuesday. Want me to shout any obscenities?
It's good, but relative to price
Think is the first Saturday in a while I just get to stay home and do not a damn thing. Thank God. I'm just not much of a fan of large crowds.
Not really. They are minor shows on free TV.
Ditto. How about a Clash of the Champions? Or maybe SummerSlam 1989?
I didn't mind him until he completely copied Eddie once he passed away. Finishers, movesets, attire, poses, everything stolen.
He thinks he is way better than he is.
When Ortiz comes to bat, try to get a Big Porky chant going. I like calling him that.
Sure, she's no Lesnar,GSP or Silva though.
Yeah, that's a big part of it. Like, carve out your own identity instead of leeching off of your dead uncle. Even doing that, he couldn't draw a dime.
Yep. They are billed as "dating pro wrestlers".
No one ever hypes TNA.
Cumdumpston has the Pirates in a 2-0 hole in the 1st
Will try lol
Ooh, I can get behind this. Sting-Cactus? Yes, please.
Clash 91!I kid, I kid.
What was the reason for Rick Rude's US Title not being on the line in a damn Iron Man match?
So Beach Blast 1992? Sting/Cactus, Rude/Steamboat, Miracle Violence Connection/Steiners?
Looks like this one is winning.
Sure, that works. At 7?
I can't believe it because http://po.st/JHE9ud
40+ shows a year not including the 27 different variations of The Ultimate Fighter seem like oversaturation to me.But hell even if he wants a card a week, why schedule 2 on the same day?
8 EST? I'm gonna grab a bath real fast.
Dodgers on the telly, Spurs coming up in a bit...if I didn't order pizza the other day, this would be a pizza kinda day. Sadly, I've had it with boxing; I used to watch HBO Boxing reguarly (and ESPN FNF), but the Bradley/Pacman fight hit my threshold of corrupt judging. Done with the sport.
Doing a Super J cup on FPW X premium now.
Absolutely. I think he had a reputation online for being really good for a while quite a long time ago, but I never cared for him.
I'll join in around nine or so.
I heard him on Jericho's show where he describes him and Rey having an incredible match on a Raw from Mexico City and then guys coming up to him after calling it one of the best matches they've ever seen.I have no memory of it whatsoever.
Rule ALL the markets!
Again but why on the same day?Saturday night card,sunday afternoon or what have you?People are already growing tired of C-List shows, why water it down more?
I'm off to start dinner, but I'll join in once I put things in the oven.
I've never been into boxing. I got pretty interested in UFC for a while several years ago, but I lost interest there, as well. I guess I like my fighting scripted.
I got Fire Pro Returns on my PS2 emulator, and remember one of that game's biggest flaws: The anti-matter double leg takedown. You gotta avoid those MMA guise in FPW, they make fights look tarded.
Sting's title wasn't on the line in his match against Cactus, either. It was an almost total throw away show.
First card wasn't even on TV it was on the fightpass only. UFC treats overseas events like they don't "count". They're not even run as gate draws, they're run as loss leaders trying to build an audience overseas. Business wise it makes sense from a certain point of view. I don't agree with it, I would stack cards and try to consolidate in America but that's why I'm a 9-to-5 shlub and not a guy running a media corporation.
Funny thing about this game,it has Rickson Gracie.
Chavo has always been, for me, an adequate worker but zero charisma. If you expect **1/2, usually you'll get it.
The 196 different "World Champions" helped me lose complete interest.Plus do you really need 18 different weight classes?
This'll be my first time seeing BB92. Seems like a stacked show.
Powers of Pain? That should be interesting.
Yeah, I used to be into MMA as well, but the diluted cards and endless events have taken the shine off it, esp. once FOX picked it up. Just a few years ago, I was still a big fight fan, now I couldn't really give a shit about either. And even my WWE-dom is apathetic at the moment, I basically just watch old stuff on the network and NXT.
I do. "You fucking suck, Michael Brantley!!"
The UFC considers her one. I'm inclined to agree. The last card she headlined had literally nothing else of value on it and it still exceeded expectations. That signals that the only people buying were buying for her.As of now I would imagine she's #3 on the depth chart for the promotion behind Jones and Cain. She'd naturally fall if GSP came back, if a charismatic WW like Lawler or Brown won the belt or if Weidman turns into a real star. It's more a sign of how weak their main event roster is that she's one of their horses right now.
That's one kick ass card for being a throw away show.
I haven't seen it in a long time, but I remember it being really good.
BOO! I say Yanks fans and Red Sox fans unite against the Rays. Also, Rays will win NOTHING with Joe Maddon leading the way.
Accordling to MLB.com, Cumpton is in the hole. No, really?
And another future jobber pops up! This one oesn't even need a name change.
Down with the RAYS!
It's pretty easy to counter, once you're on the ground.I say easy in a Fire Pro sense, of course.
That's the worst of it, the alphabet titles made titles as meaningless as the WWE ones. One of the big reasons I got into UFC during its boom was the lure of one company being the alpha in the sport, so you had one legit champion per division, knew who the contenders were, and from there, they could build on that anticipation. But with events seemingly weekly now, there's no special-ness to anything there anymore.
Geez, dude. He's no Benji Molina.
Uh huh huh. Uh huh huh.
No, I'm saying when the CPU does a double leg on a CPU sometimes they go right through the guy or miss him because the opponent is in an animation. It looks like a Botchamania worthy moment every time it happens.
Ohh, I gotcha. Yeah, clipping is one of the biggest issues, I shouldn't have to learn to incorporate it into the gameplay.
Because of my work schedule, I can't really watch Raw or Smackdown, so I keep up with the current stuff through here and various videos online. And of course, I watch the hell out of old stuff on the network.I think once some of the bigger names in UFC from the last several years got older and stuff, I really lost interest.
Benoit is out,Guerrero advances to the next round.
Flagged you, you spamming WHORE!
Benoit/Guerrero in a first-round match? Shenanigans.
Yeah she is, her gates have been good; people can take confidence that there's a high probability of her snapping someone's arm at a right angle.
Am I the only one who doesn't see it? Victoria's was better, esp in her 2004 good-guy booty shorts.
When i was growing up, boxing had the WBA,WBC & IBF now they've added the WBO and who knows how many more?If boxing could consolidate into one giant world recognized A+ promotion with only one true world champion in their weight class it would gain greatly.Their would still be minor league cards of course, but that's my dream. But i'll NEVER EVER happen of course.
Five minutes remaining
Hayabusa wins by Orange crush.
Is that where he grabs a drink from a ringside fan, shakes it up, and sprays it in the opponents eyes, temporarily blinding him enough for the three count?
The whole sport got hurt by never making that Manny/Floyd fight to happen. No matter who was at fault, someone had to put that fight together. I respect Mayweather's skill, but his record is mostly a paper record and you can't call yourself a GOAT when you haven't beaten all the best guys in your era. Boxing is all about who you beat, not your record; no one gives a shit about Ali's record, because they knew who he beat.
I'll take Stacy Keibler any day.
Ok guise, any idea what my Velocity/Heat-esque show in TEW13 should be called? I'm getting it fairly soon from the looks of it.
Ric Flair had to have won like two matches that way.
Rave. I'm not sure. Just popped in my head.
I wonder how many WWE fans in Chicago are trying to sell their tickets. I mean it's one thing to go to a show when the hometown guy isn't there, but the fact that arguably the city's most popular team is playing a Game 7 is probably more can't miss than a mediocre B-PPV.
It wasn't that long ago being Heavyweight Champion of the world was THE top of the mountain in all of sports pretty much, hell it was like that for 80 years.Now it's just another title, most people couldn't even name a Klitchko brother.
I should have gone on a beer run. ._.
Kinda strange to see Bill Watts and Eric Bischoff on screen together, knowing what happens soon after.
Can we postpone to 7:15ish?
And not only will they not fight each other, there's no heavyweight who can even make them break a sweat. Them fighting a guy like Chris Arreola would be like Dredrick Tatum vs. Homer.
It's awesome. 1992 was a great year for both companies.
Found this on Youtube. Who is the mystery man? Beefcake? I vaguely remember this and it seemed to go nowhere. Wonder what was up? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lplY3s_h2Nc
Man, what a long day.
You think THAT'S bad? Watch the Friends Thanksgiving episode with Brad Pitt in the I Hate Rachel Green Club.*yanked off-stage by cane*
There's a live RAW coming to Austin on 8/4. If I happen to make it there, I'm going to blow up my avatar on some paperboard and try to get it on TV. Kinda like a BoD shout out.
I'm gonna be throwing a few back tonight so I might be up for that later.
I want to do that on a show one day as well.
You might be.
My UFC fandom generally depends on who's fighting. Like if Silva or GSP was fighting that night, I'd plan my day around that. But since they're both gone and I'm pretty meh on Bones Jones, I haven't watched in a while. Although I will say, if even I'm apathetic toward it, I'll jump on the chance to go see it live any day. Best 5-6 hours spent on random Saturday.
Then the BoD can say "Is that Stranger??"
Raws gonna be here June 16th. I'll be going but not behind the ring.
We have a Raw coming here in December. I'm actually looking forward to it; I haven't been to a live show in a long time.
Like the hero in The Lego Movie, I'm too generic to have any good BoD shout-out that would point me out. And I'm not putting this ugly mug on a posterboard!
Then why didn't Kerwin White get a bigger push?
I'm ok with that, although I just fast forwarded to 5 minutes in when I hit play
I've done a TV taping back in the 90's, but I haven't been to a live TV or PPV.
Gedo is out.
I want to go, but I'm coming back from a trip on that day.
Andrew McCutchen has as many homers as Carl Crawford. Serves me right for overpaying the fuck out of him in the BoD fantasy baseball auction draft.
I've been to the two Raws they had in Brooklyn. Had a lot of fun. I won't waste my time on a live event, though.
It was a house show.
You probably won't miss anything. Going anywhere good?
What are you doing in FPW?
Scotty Flamingo was so much fun. Raven was such a complete 180 from what he was doing before.
Yeah, I have been to two house shows. Bleh
Florida, an annual trip.
Great episode! Might be my favorite Thanksgiving episode they did.
Super J cup
Cialis ads always amuse me. Uh huh huh...those old people are gonna fuck.
Jesse: Isn't Miami of Ohio the junior college you go to before you get to go to Miami of Florida?Awesome
He got better.
I've gone to the last two MSG Christmas shows. The first one was fun, but the last one felt like such a waste of time. I wish they would go back to MSG for a Raw.
Gonna celebrate my top 5 spot at Disney World!
Pretty terrific how they presented Raven as what Scott Levy was really feeling at the time.
Eh. angsty teenaged/early-20s me loved Raven, too. But as I get older, I can appreciate Scotty Flamingo/Johnny Polo a lot more.
Oh yeah, it's great. Brad Pitt corpsing when Joey comes in with the maternity pants is the cherry on top.
I feel that my sign should just be one big question mark.
Oh, it was a brilliant character turnaround, and I give Scott Levy a lot of credit for being a great character on both ends of the spectrum, but someone maybe should have treated him for manic-depression.
It was Brutus Beefcake,angle never went anywhere.
Oh and how did you do?
Semi finals Lyger vs Guerrero,place your bets.
CO against Jado.
I watched this show on a satellite in my aunt and uncle's house in Mexico on a vacation. The channel didn't pick up any sound. I don't think I minded during the bikini contest...
What the hell with Sterling Marte dropping the ball? Even Puig would say that was dumb as hell.Good to see Ethier drive the ball with authority as of late.
Same here. When I was younger, I didn't care for either the WCW or WWF incarnations of the guy. But now, I like both a lot more.
How far into BB are we?
I watching Summerslam 99', sign in the crowd: My Balls itch
Baseball? About a third of the way now.
One of all time underrated wrestlers.
I'm about 15 minutes in.
I have zero recollection of that.
Where are we at in the ppv?
!!!According to F4WOnline.com, TNA star MVP suffered a knee injury during a Preston City Wrestling event in The UK last night.The injury took place during a tag team match, and MVP later said it was a "popping of the knee." He reportedly limped to the back immediately following the injury.MVP was scheduled to work tonight's Preston City event, but is unable to as the injury put him on crutches. MVP cut a promo at the event saying X-Rays proved inconclusive and he will have to undergo an MRI.MVP is scheduled to face Eric Young at TNA Slammiversary for the TNA Title, and it's unknown at this time whether or not MVP's injury will put the bout in jeopardy.
So I've been completely hosed by my game, as now I'm locked into a crappy TV deal and can't get a "B" show for all my talent to be properly used until winter. So I'm gonna have to have a big-time non-PPV or TV "house show" with an awesome main event every single week just so I can avoid having to constantly put my guise into 10 man tags on my pre-show. FUCK!
Hey Kid, if you want a fun hour of tournaments FPWR style, watch this.http://youtu.be/tJU52VcYEW8
Check the time on your clock, start there.
