  1. WWE: Don't Care.
    TNA: So I guess Havok's the next champ? Unless they resign, that'll be two less reasons for me to watch TNA...
    Devitt: Okay...
    Bunny: Don't Care.

    You'll be surprised at how many times the KO title will change over the next few months.

    If only Angle was allowed to come on WWE programming tonight, he'd pull a Rick Rude if that happened.

    ReplyDelete
  4. ... all three of them, until TNA goes bye bye. Well, they might as well burn it all out in one last run.

    ReplyDelete
  5. So the bunny thing is officially a non-news item. Cause now it's clear it's just random people filling the suit until they're ready to reveal who they want.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm not sure I'm even going to watch Raw tonight. That new Gotham show is on tonight. The only thing that interests me is them announcing the HIAC between Lesnar and Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I read the spoilers and was incredibly, incredibly confused.

    ReplyDelete
  8. "IT WAS ME ADAM...IT WAS ME ALL ALONG!'

    ReplyDelete
  9. Where's TNA at on the taping schedule. Did they show that other spoiler yet?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I've thought about looking for them, but know if I spoil past BfG, I'll never get that PPV. Unless TNA seems to completely lose the plot between now and then, I can wait.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Didn't they film to the end of the year by now?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Um, if you're gonna put Zayn or Steen in a tag team, why not......put them together??

    ReplyDelete
  13. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 22, 2014 at 9:33 AM

    Once the shows air, it should all make sense.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I wonder if Kurt is drunk dialing HHH right now, begging him to let him come back.

    ReplyDelete
  15. He's trying to drunk dial Steph and getting Triple H. Awkward.

    ReplyDelete
  16. That could actually work in your favor though if BfG sucks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Does this mean they're finally going to finish that angle (no pun intended)? AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You mean his phone would have gotten hacked! He never does anything drunk on social media!

    ReplyDelete
  19. They did finish it in September 2000. Steph chose to stay with HHH. HHH won the match.

    ReplyDelete
  20. TNA should really just get rid of everybody and start fresh at this point. IF they survive.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Kurt probably had a pretty big salary, and he moved the needle exactly once, in his first PPV, and that's about it? If that's the case, good riddance, less money lost for TNA in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Meltzer said that the plan was for the reveal to be Darren Young so makes sense having anyone fill the suit for now.
    Just threw it in the Update because some people are into keeping track of that sort of stuff.
    Plus, slow newz day

    ReplyDelete
  23. Watching random network stuff to get the bad memories of last night's PPV out of my head.

    I decided on World War 3 1995.

    Solid opener with 15+ min Page/Badd match. Good chemistry here, although Page was still very sloppy, he was over with the crowd and he definitely had something charisma wise.

    Japanese women's match was INSANE for 1995. Tons of great near falls and super high-impact stuff. Excellent Benoit/Sasaki match on the previous Nitro (Benoit won with rolling germans into Dragon suplex) that led to a hard-hitting rematch here. Sting/Flair is literally always fun, Savage/Luger was interesting at least, and the WW3 itself was a fun concept (if severely limited and stretched based on the roster in 1995). Very weird period leading up to this show with Hogan wearing all black, being super paranoid, and acting sort of heelish. He was back in the
    red and yellow for this show. Giant could really move at this point in his career, and as others have said, doing the falling chokeslam looked great.

    1995 WCW might have had some garbage (Duggan/Bubba taped fist match?), but every promotion and year does. Overall, the level of entertainment is extremely high. Also, Kimberly Page 1995 is up there with best looking woman in wrestling history (ymmv, of course, but 14 year old sirplss was a huge fan - 33 year old sirplss is still a pretty huge fan)

    ReplyDelete
  24. trying to get bad memories out of your head? Was that WWE PPV your own Vietnam War or something?

    ReplyDelete
  25. The PPV wasn't that bad.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really like WCW 1995; or at least from the point they started airing Nitros. The Hogan shit was incredibly stupid but I really liked the Horsemen and the Luger-Sting friendship angle was interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  27. They pretty much are getting rid of everybody by letting their contracts expire and offering them new ones with major pay cuts, which they don't take.

    Styles said his new contract was for 40% less money. I assume Daniels and Kazarian had similar shit offers.

    TNA won't have Spike to help shoulder the cost of some of these contracts. I think Angle was one of the guys who Spike was helping paying for.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Good for them. If they've had somebody more than years at this point it's just not going to happen for them. Might as well just reset the whole thing.

    ReplyDelete
  29. It is really too bad that Kurt Angle is such a liability.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's funny what he's become given his initial gimmick.

    ReplyDelete
  31. No, just didn't enjoy it but wanted to watch some wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It was a bit rushed. Creatively unfulfilling. Needs a real ending.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Even Eric the Midget realized that being dead was better than working for TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You just made it sound very over-dramatic, like it gave you PTSD and you were waking up in cold sweats and screaming 3 times a night.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I guess I could have said "get the bad taste of the PPV out of my mouth," but I didn't, so here we are.

    ReplyDelete
  36. See... every time you get close to being something other than a troll, you have to drop a turd like this.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was fine with it, mostly since Kurt won the world title the following month, so it ended up hurting nobody. And if anything, the real swerve here was that there was no swerve. Steph joining Kurt would have actually been incredibly predictable.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I wonder it the bunny is going to get a push. It would be something different at least.

    ReplyDelete
  39. TNA: Bye for Now

    ReplyDelete
  40. That is much better. If only we had Daniel Bryan's time machine... All of this could have been avoided... But ALAS.....

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yes, if we didn't know better, who wouldn't mark out if, after Rusev pretty much has destroyed every other "American hero", and Lana is putting out another challenge, and then "Medal" hits?

    ReplyDelete
  42. The bunny will get a push until Vince decides he's bored with the gimmick.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Bring in C.P. Munk to feud with it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Wasn't the bunny Damien Darling at least once?

    ReplyDelete
  45. It's a money idea, but we all know Rusev will be crushed by John Cena, who is an American Hero because he played a Marine in a movie eight years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Seriously, I dunno, as Cena loses a lot more than people think. He is more vulnerable than Hogan ever was.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes, he certainly looked vulnerable against Bray.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonSeptember 22, 2014 at 9:55 AM

    McMahon: HA HA HAAA!!! Look at that bunny do a moonsault.
    HHH: Vince, that's Justin Gabriel...you've seen him and the other smaller wrestlers do that before.
    Vince: That's IT!! Put all of those tiny bastards in animal costumes! Someone call up Party City and get some SpongeBob costumes, and Ninja Turtles outfits..that's still a thing right?
    HHH: *facepalms*

    ReplyDelete
  49. Soooo...after tonight's RAW?

    ReplyDelete
  50. The PPV was pretty bad. Nothing about the current product means anything outside of Cena/Lesnar (and I actually enjoyed the Diva's match because it had some build). I try and stay positive and let the ring work keep me entertained, but there was just way too much BS last night (Florida Georgia Line,

    Cena/Lesnar had a terrible finish because they booked themselves into a corner and didn't want to make Cena look weak again (which I understand), but also need Brock to stay champ. The problem is this is a PPV, not a Raw. It just felt extremely weak.

    The rest of the show was fine, but again, I just don't feel like there are any stakes to anything. Personally, I am just not invested in most of the roster. Most of that has to do with booking. The in-ring product is still ok to good most of the time. I still like the WWE for the most part, but this particular show left a lot to be desired.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't think today's fans remember who Angle is.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hogan was more entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  53. They just remember what they want to remember.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonSeptember 22, 2014 at 9:56 AM

    They should know. He's been wrestling on Spik...
    ...oh, maybe they don't.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The funny thing is, given this generation has no art and just regurgitates creativity from previous generations, Vince is just about right where he should be culturally despite being twenty years behind at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  56. For maximum stupidity, have the bunny carry swords along with the Turtles and introduce him as The Samarai Rabbit.

    ReplyDelete
  57. That's Sunny's ex correct?

    ReplyDelete
  58. That's actually true, thinking of those people asking RVD and Christian why they had "retired", while under TNA contract. So Kurt has basically "retired" since 2006-2007.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yet Sting is a super big deal...

    ReplyDelete
  60. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonSeptember 22, 2014 at 9:58 AM

    Well I was going to say Hong Kong Phooey, Blue Flacon and Dynomutt but that might have gone over the young'uns heads.

    ReplyDelete
  61. But it won't go over the thirty-something's heads. Look at GotG or Ted or McFarlance's whole career, mention something 80's = HILARIOUS.


    And Vince is right about in the 80's now, should be a no brainer.

    ReplyDelete
  62. a DQ during a PPV main event that sets up a rematch has happened a ton of times, even back in 1995 to 1999. It's really not that big of a deal.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'll happily take multiple three star matches on PPV. But I lived through WCW 1990 and WWF 1995.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That's the real reason they liquidated punk's merchandise; to avoid marketplace confusion.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I kind of wish Devitt and Kenta came in together as a cocky tag team.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I don't think Vince knows what a moonsault is. He knows the move but probably not the name for it.

    ReplyDelete
  67. He knows it as WHATTAMANEUVER.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Is it because Sting is still widely remembered from being on the other side of the Attitude Era, while Angle ruled during the wake of it?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Goddamnit, you beat me to it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. This is Vince's job, you see....telling people what they said was wrong, except not wrong. In fact, completely and utterly subjective.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Vince will find out what a Spongebob Squarepants is in 2016 and you best believe Hornswoggle will appear on Raw dressed as him.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think it's because people around here are bored as shit and are looking for anything to make them feel like a part of this business again, so they've mistakenly placed this hope in Sting, who hasn't been good in the ring or an interesting character in seventeen years.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonSeptember 22, 2014 at 10:06 AM

    Why no one used that as the name of a finisher is beyond me.

    ReplyDelete
  74. But he's inspired wounded soldiers to carry on!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonSeptember 22, 2014 at 10:07 AM

    Swagger Soaring Eagle or GTFO.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I still say they missed a big opportunity to bring Corey Graves up, change his name and sell all their Punk merch at market value after putting some tape over one of the letters.

    CM Junk is money.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Any day now Vince is going to discover the WWF and something either amazing or catacylsmic will happen.

    ReplyDelete
  78. This is an overblown idea. Anybody who's a wrestling fan knows who Kurt Angle is. If you don't, then you are at BEST a casual.


    Doesn't matter where he's been for 8 years, people still know him.

    ReplyDelete
  79. You are wrong. (see what i did there? lulz)

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sting was Mr. WCW. He was THE face of that company and a major star during wrestling's hottest period. Angle was just... there in the first half of the 2000s. Big difference.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Well, the Impact Zone was in Florida, and we all know people tend to move to Florida when they retire... so they're not far off.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Brodus Clay could have been an oversized Patrick!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Seriously, they remembered who Warrior was and he hadn't been on WWE television in like nineteen years.

    ReplyDelete
  84. WWE's trotting out of old stars has nothing to do with "today's fans", it has to do with getting lapsed fans to tune in and hopefully get hooked on wrestling again... including spending $9.99 on the Network.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Sure he knows the name! It's clearly called WHATAMANUEVER.


    Come on, man.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I meant in terms of an arena surprise. If Medal hits, I don't know if the crowd would know who exactly is coming out.

    ReplyDelete
  87. "OMG IT'S DEL WILKES THE PATRIOT!"

    ReplyDelete
  88. Start fresh how? With who? A lot of TNA talent would never go back and those that would are there already.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Tonight: Lana brags about Rusev crushing all of the inferior Americans that have tried and failed to topple him, and that Russia will-

    DA DA-DA-DA DA-DA-DA DA DUM-DUM-DUM

    ReplyDelete
  90. Do it in Pittsburgh, let people know in advance, blow the roof off the joint.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Since they split, Sunny is also now wrestling with a giant Rabbit every night.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I never understood why they would use a real name like "Del Wilkes" and have him wear a mask.

    ReplyDelete
  93. The little drummer boy?

    ReplyDelete
  94. That would be a good move.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Sting did absolutely nothing during the company's hottest period. And then when he came back he didn't even change a move and immediately lost a year's worth of interest in five minutes.


    Angle was around for an even hotter period than WCW's (when Sting wasn't doing anything) and was involved in the main event scene for about four years straight.


    When you do the video package to bring Kurt in you can show him wrestling Austin and Rock and Cena and Lesnar and Jericho and Orton and Batista and Edge and Mysterio and a litany of people the fans already know. When you bring Sting in for his package you can show him wrestling...........................Hogan...I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  96. The package for Angle wouldn't work. You'd have to show him beating John Cena in his very first match, and the crowd would turn on him, knowing that if he crippled Cena then, none of this would've happened.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm convinced that TNA could sign John Cena, CM Punk and The Undertaker, have them do a three-way dance with Steve Austin as special ref and maybe, maybe, get a 1.3 rating for that episode of Impact. That company just has a disease at the core that dooms anyone who signs on to be just another wrestler.

    ReplyDelete
  98. But John OVERCAME THE ODDS and eventually beat him...I think...? I don't remember this period very well I was in college and mostly drunk.

    ReplyDelete
  99. It's the kayfabe equivalent of hiring Ted Dibiase or Harvey Whippleman as a manager.

    ReplyDelete
  100. That would be the shit.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Not sure if you've watched NXT recently, but Zayn is in the middle of a world title storyline.

    ReplyDelete
  102. It was actually a pretty cool 4 year story. Seemed like they had 1 match every year, where John got closer and closer, and he finally beat him in 2005.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Aries is one of the few TNA guys who could do some work in WWE if he would play nice just a little.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Lesnar-style where EVERYONE knew Brock was coming back WWE didn't officially announce it.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Precisely. Don't announce it, but announce it.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Not a chance. He's tiny, even compared to the majority of the NXT roster and he's toxic in terms of his social media presence

    ReplyDelete
  107. I think it's because each were seen as the flag bearer for each company during the wars. With all the movement going on they were the ones providing the stability for each fanbase. I guess

    ReplyDelete
  108. Na, 95 was fine. To me Flair didn't start to really dip until after he got hurt in 96.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I was actually disappointed in this. I'm not too keen on the idea but there is a certain level of expectation with a Jesse Baker post

    ReplyDelete
  110. Wait a minute! Non-RR-WM-SS-SS PPVs are $55?? Are you freaking kidding me?

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is where you have to suspend your disbelief. Of COURSE it makes more sense. But from a story telling standpoint, the fans get the thrill of seeing Rollins get screwed over while still allowing Rollins to hold the briefcase. They get to have their cake and eat it too.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Jesse calling Daniel Bryan "Bryan Danials" reminds me of the video where Iron Sheik goes nuts about Brian Blair, he calls Dan Mirade "Dan Maloney"

    ReplyDelete
  113. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 22, 2014 at 11:02 AM

    I'm kind of glad it isn't shown anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  114. You still believe that huh?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Random Notes:

    WWE tag team titles: The Usos v. Goldust & Stardust: Really good tag team contest, anchored by Goldust, the absolute pro’s pro, looking better now than he ever has before (and I’ve been watching him since his debut – a 45 year old man doing somersault sentons off the ring
    apron?). Agree with Scott that ignoring the Uso knee for the entire match after all that build was ridiculous and sloppy. ***1/2

    US title: Sheamus v. Cesaro: Great match. Cesaro can do no wrong and Sheamus is *far* better when he works a deliberate, hard hitting style. They totally got me with the alpamare waterslide; completely thought that was ending the match. ***1/2

    Intercontinental title: Dolph Ziggler v. The Miz: Don’t get the booking, don’t get making a couple of country singers look good over your “stars”, don’t get sticking Truth and Sandow with Ziggler/Miz, respectively. *1/2

    Mark Henry v. Rusev: The monster push for Rusev is working, but this was disappointing in that they totally traded Henry’s legit athleticism with very little build for a small step with Rusev. *1/2

    Chris Jericho v. Randy Orton: If you want to know why they keep dragging Jericho back and paying him tons of money to lose to everyone in sight, this is why. This was a match that we’ve seen hundreds of times before and one that, if you’d seen ANY of the prior matches, you pretty much knew how it was going to end. They were also dealing with a dead crowd that was ambivalent at best as to the workers.

    Yet.

    Jericho, by sheer force of will and dint of understanding EXACTLY how to involve the crowd, got them into the match and chanting by the time the hugely obvious finish came about. Just remarkable work. Side note: anyone else think that Orton was fucking with the announcers by doing the table spot and breaking their iPads and whatnot? Cole seemed legit pissy about it and, knowing Orton’s general personality, I wouldn’t put it past him. ***

    Divas title: Paige v. AJ Lee v. Nikki Bella: I liked this far better than Scott, primarily due to AJ’s solid work and Nikki seemingly not giving a shit if she hurts anyone (there’s working stiff and there’s working sloppy). I don’t get why they set up Paige for this ludicrous storyline, when a cockney punk angle/persona would seem to work a lot better. She also had virtually no offense the entire match, which baffles me if you’re attempting to build her up. **

    WWE World title: Brock Lesnar v. John Cena: Totally disagree with the booking, this really didn’t move the feud forward other than to show how tough Cena is (which we already knew). Hopefully, HITC is the answer for this. I’d have just had Brock level him again and gone with Rocky and Cena doing the Apollo/Rocky jive from Rocky III. Match itself was fine. **1/2

  116. Damn, if Heath Slater is a 7 on the hick-o-meter, that guy from Floridageorgialine is an 11. He actually looks like Heath's obnoxious brother.

  117. At what point wasn't country about the bros? Sure, outlaw country has always been a little darker, and the Townes Van Zandt alt-country stuff was more "intellectual," but country generally has always been about bros swigging beer and being dumb, at least since the '70s.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Isn't "baby kittens" pretty much redundant?

    ReplyDelete
  123. The way I understand it, Bro country is dudes telling chicks wearing super short cutoff jeans and bikini tops to get them a drink and fix them a sandwich. That sort of overt objectification, not so much of "me and my boys are getting wasted and hitting the road" type music.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Isn't the WWE main event style really similar to the WCW

    ReplyDelete
  125. It's really just about age and timing. I mean, I remember talking to friends in 96 saying that if Sting jumped to the WWF then it would be bigger than the NWO. But in 2014? I just don't see it. But moreover I just don't see why everyone thinks the Taker is some sort of dream match made in heaven? There is no connection between them and Sting doing some sort of WCW representation ceased to be relevant years ago. Just my opinion though, if it's entertaining then I hope it works out.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Dean Ambrose is okay as far as professional wrestlers go, but what would really put him over the top would be if they dropped the Dean part of his name and henceforth simply referred to him as Ambrose. Agreed?

    ReplyDelete
  127. I know it goes against conventional booking, but I think Rollins-Cena and Ambrose-HHH programs would be hot right now. Definitely something fresh.

  133. Why not? You have Sting win by DQ due to Flair interference, Orton & Flair start double-teaming Sting, then a bunch of WCW guys (Booker, a returning Jericho, Malenko, maybe throw some cash at Scott Steiner for a one-time appearance) run out for the save and the WM mark-out moment. Classic old-school wrestling 101.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Just have a Hall of Fame battle royal. Because some of the guys can't take the over-the-top bump, take off the ropes. Then put everyone in bubble soccer balls and have them try to bounce the others off the apron into foam pits. Tell me that wouldn't be fun as hell to see.

    ReplyDelete

    Triple H latches onto the hottest act and gets himself on Mania every year, so expect Sting vs HHH after HHH "changes his mind" and won't let Sting in the Hall of Fame because he's a "WCW guy.. and let's face it, that place was a joke."

    This is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard. A DQ, he says! Malenko!

    Waid's run is good. Bendis' run (art had alot to do with it, too) is legendary,

  148. He's just so so terrible

  149. Except you forget that since this is a tag match and Sting is involved, that means Bryan has to turn heel and join Flair/HHH by the end of it

  150. I'm still waiting for a retraction from him. In an issue of Villains United, Lex Luthor allowed Vandal Savage to leave the Society. Baker gave that issue a poor review because Lex would never do that. Turned out it was a doppelganger and not the actual Lex Luthor, which renders Baker's review null and void.
    I DEMAND A RETRACTION, JESSE BAKER.
    (Also, seriously, I used to do occasional reviews for Pulse, and knowing that Jesse Baker was also good enough for them is...humbling. Not in the Iron Sheik sense.)

  151. Bendis' run was a great one but the positive tone Matt having FUN is great although different still very in character. Plus ....


    STILT-MAN~!

  152. I can totally envision you saying that in the voice of Comic Book Guy.

    Because Orton is fucking awful and he'd be a waste for Sting's first WWE match.

  154. Yeah, when they asked who his stunt double would be, I said "Heath Slater, dumbass."

  155. I am in the small minority, but I dug the Daniel Wyatt angle. He atleast looked cool in that jumpsuit

  156. Being repetitive is my job! My job! Repetition is my job!

  157. I would go one step further and shorten his name to simply Brose.

    Then his opponents could say, "You mad, Brose?"

  158. Wow that's bad.

  159. What is that saying about the current roster? 2001, the part timers which were stars 10 years ago were in the Gimmick Battle Royal, 2014 the part timers which were stars 10 years ago are world champions and Wrestlemania main eventer. ;)

  160. Glove Slap, baby, that's where it's at.

  161. For real, though, Orton-Jericho was my match of the night. ***1/2 or so. Maybe even **** for me. Good, crisp, clever work.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Someone else had my same ide: Sting vs. Wyatt, the lights go out and when they come back on Sting is pointing a bat at Wyatt.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Then Triple H pedigrees all of them because WWE must always be on top!

    ReplyDelete
  164. Blame TNA for that UT video ripoff they made for Sting. Blaming TNA is always easier.

  165. Bees already jobbed to Triple H in the YJ Stinger commercial.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Can anyone find some connection between "bees" or the letter "B" and Randy Savage? And make it into a witty joke?

    ReplyDelete
  167. i respect Tana's opinion on Shibata (leaving NJPW high and dry etc), but i'd watch Shibata every day of the week over Tana. Shibata's style is truly unique
