  1. ....the cbs woman reporter's a little haggard looking

  2. That main event has real potential.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Evening. I a had rough day.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Tyson Kidd is like a luchador version of Dean Malenko.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Two News Itens:
    Ric Flair will not be here as he had a scheduling conflict.
    CJ Parker as a match against a mystery opponent. According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, the opponent is not someone new to NXT.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yeah NXT baby!

    ReplyDelete
  7. School, women, or family?

    ReplyDelete
  8. What happened?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Nothing stressful to the point of snap, just tired. I've been studying since 8AM to now.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Just College stuff, I'm tired. I was studying from 8 am to now.

    ReplyDelete
  11. OK, so we all know Ray Rice is not the 1st or even the most famous athlete to be involved in a domestic violence incident. So why has this case been the one that has become the cultural tipping point for sports and domestic violence? Is it simply because there's video? Is it just a product of the social media age we live in?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Winter is coming to a end, hello Spring AKA prelude to Summer, AKA prelude to Hell on Rio.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ouch, those days do wear on you.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Energy here is amazing, can't wait. Dark match was Becky Lynch vs Paige. Was a great quick kick off. Also hyping that Rene is the first woman to announce a WWE PPV even though it's just a special

    ReplyDelete
  15. "scheduling" or should Chavo stay away from his cell phone this evening

    ReplyDelete
  16. Seeing it is way different, but it's a little bit of both. We live in a different time. Hyper focused for a minute, then the attention burns off almost as quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  17. A product of the social media age. Jim Brown threw a woman off his balcony.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm excited to see how they handle the debut of KENTA, I'll probably switch over to the NFL after that though. I might switch back to see the main event, and possibly the women's match if it hasn't happened yet.

    Prediction: The 4-way stip is a way to get the title off Neville without jobbing him so they can call him up ASAP, especially after he got a good reaction on monday.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have to wake up every thruday 5am to be in college 8am, it takes a hour and a half to get there.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Goddell's soft suspension and the fact everyone knows he saw the tape and lied about it in order to keep the false image he has created for the NFL is why it is big.
    Christ, I am rooting for Pittsburgh to destroy this team tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree with that, but then why isn't the Greg Hardy or Ray McDonald case getting as much attention?

    ReplyDelete
  22. The video is pretty graphic and really proves he did it, other times in the past it's been word against word which for fans of celebrities usually doesn't change their allegiance.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sociology of education (great teacher and class, 8am to noon) Medieval II( awful teacher but the period is cool, 13pm to 17 pm).

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sasha Banks came off pretty darn confident in her character. Otherwise, this pre-show was a waste of time. Renee works best with Heyman.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The tag match could be good as well

    ReplyDelete
  26. Think I just saw Jason Whitlock outside the NXT arena with Tensai.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Agree. Banks carried herself well on the mic and more so than just about any other diva on the roster can too,

    ReplyDelete
  28. What type of shoot do you want for next week:

    70's Stars
    80's Stars
    90's Stars
    Women
    WWF/WWE Guys
    WCW/NWA Guys
    ECW Guys
    AWA Guys
    Territory Guys
    80's Tag Teams
    90's Tag Teams
    Face Off
    YouShoot
    Behind Closed Doors Series

    ReplyDelete
  29. Why are they promoting the network? Was this being simulcasted on youtube or something?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I hope they let Kalisto actually showcase his moves, unlike the last NXT special

    ReplyDelete
  31. A big part of the problem is the NFL has gotten too big for it's own good. Marketing to females was a huge mistake.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think it was free

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want to see a Ziggler/Breeze student vs master type of feud

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is the 4 way one fall or elimination?

    ReplyDelete
  35. One fall, boooo!

    ReplyDelete
  36. As much as I love Renee Young, she's really awful when she's calling the in-ring action. She speaks in cliches and doesn't really add anything.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Which is amazingly stupid in my mind. She was just as ktfo in April or whenever as she was this week on video.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Might I direct you to the entire Raw announce team?

    ReplyDelete
  39. cowardwhotriedtoquitSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:03 PM

    Twitter (easy for everyone to "take stand"/"be outraged") + video (the first video was bad enough, dragging her out and looking rather unconcerned - not seemingly due to shock).

    ReplyDelete
  40. I know we have a ton of Orlando posters here. Any of you at the show?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Awesome you're their live. The 4 way should be killer

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ripner is as usual

    ReplyDelete
  43. (today's "No shit?" of the day) Microsoft has horrible tech support, 3 hours, multiple days and techs into trying to get a fucking dying One power supply replaced

    ReplyDelete
  44. Just me probably and yea it's live

    ReplyDelete
  45. You shut your whore mouth

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm checking NXT later, Have to read a 100 page essay about Feudalism in America soil, crazy shit. Then there's the other works.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Was Bram still part of the Ascension when they won the titles?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I agree. She needs some work. Cliches are a big crutch for her. I'm hoping she improves or just gets smarter co-workers with her.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh, I won't argue with that. I prefer Sexton, Phillips, and Regal together.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So when are these guys going to make their Ascension... to the main roster?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Probably soon.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't...really...care about them. They're just...dudes.

    ReplyDelete
  53. In the future please do not no sell my jokes. I have a fragile ego.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I thought they have come up like 9 months ago. At this point I don't question the time table because Ambrose felt like he was there for like 3 years.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Unless Neville is getting called up, I think he retains and they build to Neville/Zayn. I could also see them putting the title on Breeze to build to Breeze/Zayn

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'd prefer Fran Drescher, Bobcat Goldwaithe (sp?), and Shannon Sharpe over the current RAW team

    ReplyDelete
  57. Speaking of sorta...I'm curious, are there actually pay differences between NXT and WWE? Like minors and MLB? Otherwise, why wouldn't they just give people try outs and change things up more often instead of having people rotting for so long?

    ReplyDelete
  58. 25k for non big name borderline prospects

    ReplyDelete
  59. It looked like they were showcasing him in that RAW match so I think he loses to Zayn tonight

    ReplyDelete
  60. You'd think John Morrison would have at least tried to go to Mexico by now. His olympic gymnastics routine stuff would get over huge down there.

    ReplyDelete
  61. So I've managed to make Seth Rollins the most over guy on the entire roster on EWR, at a 100 "Over Rating."

    ReplyDelete
  62. For just their NXT contract? Or just an overall WWE deal?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Guys who are a lock to make the roster like zayn, Steen, devitt, kenta have better deals

    ReplyDelete
  64. See their name is the ascension... and I asked when they were going to make their ascension... THAT'S what I did there

    ReplyDelete
  65. Or Japan, he has the foreingner heel look.

    ReplyDelete
  66. This is almost non watchable for me, keeps freezing.

    ReplyDelete

  69. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:09 PM

    Watching on my android tablet, it's running fine.

    ReplyDelete
  70. working good on my 360 so far. was iffy during summerslam.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Nxt deal. That's just for the majority of them. The big guys have wwe deals that kick in after x amount of time plus get way more weekly cash. Shhhhhh...I think was a recent pwinsider story so don't get my fucked up by Scherer

    ReplyDelete
  72. Backed out and entered back it and it's been okay.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Sin Cara is a doofus, Chapter 379: Standing there reaching for a tag when he's LOOKING at his partner lying injured on the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Soon you will be able to watch on your Roku 3!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think they may want to make Zayn's win a big one on one type deal. Plus, Zayn is better chasing.

    I say Zayn is about to win, Breeze comes out of nowhere and low blows Zayn or whatever and steals the pin and the title.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Konor is in his mid 30s

    ReplyDelete
  77. Another reason why I love the Network
    Can watch on my iPhone at work as my company does not trust us with Adobe Flash on our computers for some reason

    ReplyDelete
  78. I had the same scenario with a girl I once knew!

    ReplyDelete

    *cheap pop*

    ReplyDelete
  80. I can't be the only one who sees nothing special in the Ascension

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm on your side.

    ReplyDelete
  82. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 11, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    I don't see anything special with them either.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hahahhaha. Glad to have you back!

    ReplyDelete
  84. He was in developmental before during the Deep South days.

    ReplyDelete
  85. You're not. I cost parallax a hilarious joke trying to make my feelings known.

    ReplyDelete
  86. That would be a good story. I'd like that

    ReplyDelete
  87. Their finisher has a cool name also

    ReplyDelete
  88. cowardwhotriedtoquitSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:12 PM

    They have an especially crappy finisher: does that count?

    ReplyDelete
  89. How fucking bad was he? That's going back to what 06-07?

    ReplyDelete
  90. They look good, have a good name/angle, but once they're in the ring it's just "meh."

    ReplyDelete
  91. This time of year? He's probably too busy winterizing TWO houses. Huh, that makes more sense then, similar to an MLB structure where the call up escalates salary

    ReplyDelete
  92. Viktor can wrestle decently but Konnor is a stiff.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:12 PM

    New NXT tag champs.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Well I guess that can Connor and Victor can finally make their... Ascension... to the main roster!

    ReplyDelete
  95. So that means the Ascension goes to the WWE?

    ReplyDelete
  96. There is a YouTube video wwe put up of NXT guys doing moves in bullet time. You get to see KENTA and Devitt in their gear and hitting their shit for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Los Mexicanos, because Mexicans wear masks.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I did that once with Rhyno and was getting regular 5 star matches out of him, depending on the opponent.

    ReplyDelete
  99. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 11, 2014 at 6:14 PM

    Yeah, looked cool too.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Anyone see this pic yet

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BxRxU8yCMAASLvn.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  101. That's a good analogy. And the big time guys get a little cash up front even if they don't make it.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Stranger in the AlpsSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:14 PM

    That can't be a highly original Halloween costume there.

    ReplyDelete
  103. That Lu-Cha chant could get over on the big show if they let them loose. Fans always love high flying tag teams.

    ReplyDelete
  104. LOL! It's even funnier the second time.


    (don't accuse me of no selling)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Is there a chance they change all the titles here so they can call up all the current champs?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:14 PM

    I haven't turned the show on yet. Is it worth it? I'm off to do some dishes, so I'll join back in after that.


    Yes, I realize no one cares. No, I will not stop.

    ReplyDelete
  107. How can it be the nXt universe? Does WWE Physics allow for multiple universes?

    ReplyDelete
  108. Apparently, HHH was "trolling" smarks!

    ReplyDelete
  109. That's what I didn't get. Whether he saw the video or not, Goodell knew Rice had done. So whatever punishment he levied then should've been made with the same indignation he's mustering now. I don't think the video made it worse for Goodell, I think the public's reaction when they saw the video is why it suddenly deserved a bigger punishment.

    ReplyDelete
  110. For $9.99, anything can happen

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hey I am not Canadian born comic sensation Dave Coulier... I am doing my best!

    ReplyDelete
  112. take dat, take dat

    ReplyDelete
  113. The big botch got a groin from the crowd but the rest of the match was pretty entertaining, Kalisto finally got to really show off.

    ReplyDelete
  114. So, NXT= Marvel's Ultimate universe.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Kalisto can speak English. That bodes well for his future.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Probably a one match show. Just turn it on in like an hour

    ReplyDelete
  117. WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH....WOAH...........WOAH....


    Sin Cara talks now?

    ReplyDelete
  118. Extant1979 - Ghetto SuperstarSeptember 11, 2014 at 6:16 PM

    Apparently, the Mets have a better shot at making the playoffs than the Yankees. The METS. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  119. He was in the indy for some time, he was Samuray Del Sol. It's not like he never worked in the US like Sin Cara 1.0

    ReplyDelete
  120. That guy is great...........from what I gather on his Wikipedia page.
    Tony Garea's legacy was good too but it went away

    ReplyDelete
  121. I was watching an old episode of WWF Superstars earlier. The episode was from 1992. I had to stifle a laugh while Vince announced that the WBF would be a "drug free competition" while Kerry Von Erich was making his way down to the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  122. It's...ahem...also the 20th anniversary of when the government terrorized the McMahon family. But they overcame it. Murica.

    ReplyDelete
  123. It's only a matter time before he's rapping in Spanglish and smacking pinatas with El Torito.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Neville should change his finisher name to the High Sparrow. And I say that as a GoT fan, not because he literally looks like an elf.

    ReplyDelete
  125. The good and bad of the 2nd wildcard is that damn near everyone is still alive. The Braves, for all their suckitude, are only 1.5 GB

    ReplyDelete
  126. Wonder how they'll debut the Ascension. I'm assuming they'll be heels. Wonder if they'll associate them with Paige since both acts are kind of goth.

    ReplyDelete
  127. HHH really needs to lose a match that blows off the Authority stuff, and just turn face. Would make everything about the company make more sense.

    ReplyDelete
  128. This was the most solemn 9/11 tribute today.

    https://twitter.com/Fleshlight/status/510063889011073024

    ReplyDelete
  129. By do some dishes you mean order your girlfriend to do her womanly duties right? RIGHT?!

    ReplyDelete
  130. If I had any idea how to add a citation to wikipedia I would confirm his birthplace with my Youtube video.

    ReplyDelete
  131. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 11, 2014 at 6:17 PM

    The picture Bayless posted reminded me of this.
    http://botchedspot.com/comic/future-wwe/

    ReplyDelete
  132. An Uncle Sam heel turn would draw millions overseas.

    ReplyDelete
  133. MAKE HER SCRUB, FERRARI, MAKE HER SCRUB

    ReplyDelete
  134. I can't believe his fucking name is CJ Parker.

    ReplyDelete
  135. In a few days it will be the 13th anniversary of them single handedly healing the nation.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I was just thinking the exact same thing. Isn't that Lana's real name?

    ReplyDelete
  137. A lot of people say this and I believe with them that HHH will make the product better when he takes over. He's bringing bunch of great talent and NXT so far is a success.

    ReplyDelete
  138. EYE GIT IT. IT IS B-CUZ U FUK MARRYED WOMANS

    ReplyDelete
  139. He's from Chicago

    ReplyDelete
  140. Baron Corbin is the mystery opponent. My money was on Sting. Or Curtis Axel.

    ReplyDelete
  141. He is terrible as a face

    ReplyDelete
  142. That's what make this whole situation so stupid

    ReplyDelete
  143. I can't believe HIS name is Barry fucking Corbin.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Never seen Corbin.....nice finisher.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Impressive win.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Lucha Dragons is such a cool name.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Maybe it's like, "Whenever he comes to, I want him to see me right there ready to help"?

    ReplyDelete
  148. http://mustacheonfriday.pl/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/CJ_PARKER_2-770x638.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  149. Oh, it's Baron.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Triple H must have a thing for long haired tattooed guys.

    ReplyDelete
  151. "Decimating CJ Parker"... he reduced him by a tenth?

    ReplyDelete
  152. Nothing about that gimmick debut wasn't great.

    ReplyDelete
  153. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 11, 2014 at 6:20 PM

    :laughs out loud:
    That just made me think of the recent Karate Kid remake.
    "Dude, I'm from Detroit."

    ReplyDelete
  154. Great way to debut Corbin in NXT. Looks like an instant threat.
    Hopefully he continues to improve

    ReplyDelete
  155. Would they let him keep it on the main roster? Looks a lot like Sister Abigail.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Good finisher, and I gotta admit, Baron is a good wrestling name at least.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Barry Corbin sounds like a nervous court-appointed public defender.

    ReplyDelete
  158. If the makers of fleshlights can't remember our fallen, I don't want anyone to

    ReplyDelete
  159. He looks like someone straight out of GoT.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Tyson Kidd is really doing a great job with his prick character.

    ReplyDelete
  161. I live Kidds "Fact" such a douchey catch phrase

    ReplyDelete
  162. He might just be trying to draw in art school chicks.

    ReplyDelete
  163. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 11, 2014 at 6:23 PM

    He seems like he fits one in real life anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Something about his face...I just wanna hit it. Repeatedly.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Or History/ Sociology/Political Science/Philosophy chicks.

    ReplyDelete
  166. He should go back to the devil horns haircut too

    ReplyDelete
  167. I was going to say 13th anniversary of Stephanie McMahon's OUTSTANDING(ly bad) promo celebrating daddy's wins over so many others.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Big Cass is a good character.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Or a rip on Billy Corgan, for the Resistance Pro stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Enzo kinda sounds like DDP.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Are you going to the NXT Tapings tomorrow night too? KENTA is supposed to debut there in the ring

    ReplyDelete
  172. Enzo Amore is just terrible IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Agree.
    Sounds like a bad Dice Clay impersonator

    ReplyDelete
  174. I'd pay someone to cut off Amore's mic right now

    ReplyDelete
  175. These guys are basically New Age Outlaws 2k14. I can dig it.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Crap... gonna watch football instead.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Cass reminds me a little of Test with better skills.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Is this a good "smoke break" match?

    ReplyDelete
  179. "Yep Mode" ABeyAnce1©September 11, 2014 at 6:28 PM

    Wouldn't CJ Parker be a better guy to put in a hair vs hair match?

    ReplyDelete
  180. Yep yep, wouldn't miss an NXT show

    ReplyDelete
  181. Saaaaaaaaaaawft! Love those two.

    ReplyDelete
  182. I found Road Dogg a lot more tolerable than Amore.
    Cass has more charisma than Gunn though

    ReplyDelete
  183. Test wasn't awful.

    ReplyDelete
