    I'm at work for 2 more hours. I'm not even pretending to try at this point. I just amused myself by encouraging War Machine to try suicide again,

  3. If Hudson can go at least 6, I don't see why the Giants can't take this one.

    I'll say this for the Royals...they have really nice home uniforms. I just never noticed because...seriously...who ever bothered to watch them before this?

  11. Why are there college football games on a Friday night? I can't imagine too many people outside of Oregon fans caring. Cal doesn't have fans

    Random question, (then again isn't this what the tread is for) Watched Goodfellas, again, the other day. What do you think is the better insult? "Now go get your fucking shinebox" or "What are you still doing here? I thought I told you to go fuck your mother"

    ReplyDelete
  15. Shinebox, because it was so personal and it caused Billy Batts to get killed.

    Welcome to the Network Era, where RAW is now on Sunday every month.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The PPV match is gonna be 2 out of 3 falls, I read.

    ReplyDelete
  27. They wrestled Monday, tonight, and possibly 3 times on Sunday. That's 5 matches on TV in less than a week.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sunday Night Raw! only 15 minutes shorter than Monday Night's show.

    ReplyDelete
  29. And $9.99-$49.99 more.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is Eden Stiles now the Smackdown ring announcer?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Anybody been watching the Amazing Race? I'd never watched it before but tuned in this season because of Team TNA. The husband-wife dentist team is annoying. I want them to lose, but at the same time, he seems like one of those dudes that would murder his whole family if that happened.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Let's bitch and complain about seeing a solid match with 2 well liked wrestlers several times!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Why bring race into this?

    ReplyDelete
  34. WELL GOOD THEN!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yeah i've been watching the show for years, Brooke & Robbie E are even dumber in real life then i expected.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Whoa, tomorrow's classic SNL is Tom Hanks/Aerosmith

    ReplyDelete
  37. Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena has happened less times overall than Cesaro vs. Ziggler has happened this week.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I asked out of confusion. How does that qualify as complaining?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I haven't really been paying attention and didn't notice.

  40. Pretending everyone is in their prime and you can mix and match however you want, what's your ideal 3-person wrestling announce team?

  46. I can't wait for Total Divas to be cancelled just so the recaps won't be on the blog anymore. terrible stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and JBL #troll

    ReplyDelete
  48. I liked Heel Lawler; he and JR has great chemistry. Babyface Lawler is hard to listen to (when he's not being shouted down by JBL).

    ReplyDelete
  49. As we've come to learn

    ReplyDelete
  50. #rollupoutofnowhere

    ReplyDelete
  51. Earlier he said he doesn't like you because he is a racist!!!

  53. Sit down interview, haven't seen one of these in awhile.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, they're doubling down on the retarded with this Rusev/troop shit....Somber Big Show requested this interview

    ReplyDelete
  55. Not that I want to actually see them return, but I miss after-the-match interviews.

    ReplyDelete
  56. LOL I honestly like Vince about 80% of the time.

  63. I turned on Smackdown just in time to see crying Big Show! Hooray for WWE!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Stranger in the AlpsOctober 24, 2014 at 6:42 PM

    Big Show crying? That must mean it's almost Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  65. "Exclusively on App" (shows clip on Smackdown)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh btw you guys get shit wrong about Meltzer all the time. It's like you guys don't even go straight to the source and just assume everything that is attributed to him is correct when a lot of times he is misquoted or taken out of context.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Anyone else check out the Rolling Stone article on Ambrose? Neat.

    ReplyDelete
  68. He was crying because he met a 2 star general who cried when he met the big show, and he was moved to tears by this.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Lance Russell, Jesse Ventura and a fern. I prefer two-person booths.

    ReplyDelete
  70. i'm not sure what to think of her. for one thing, pale, dark haired women can be hot... for another thing, sometimes she looks like a creepy ghost. i cannot make up my mind.

    You see Vince, mainstream attention, push him to the moon.

  75. Hey Stranger, we've got a troll down below revealing TNA spoilers.

    ReplyDelete
  76. And years later, he'd recount this incident in a pre-tape, and he'd be moved to tears by the memory of it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Also Havok loses the title in another week or two because TNA didn't think she was getting over in front of 250 people.

    ReplyDelete
  78. You'd think. But then what is there to complain about?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Too late you read them already

    ReplyDelete
  80. You can't make your mind up as to whether you're hetero or not?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Heyman ,Ross, and Vetura/Heenan. Can't decide between the two...maybe some crime against god-style fusion?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Nikki dresses like a porn skunk would in a 'sports' scene.

  94. :: Stranger bans literally every commenter and just spends hours talking to himself like Jobber does. ::

    ReplyDelete
  95. I loved when Shawn/HHH lost the tag titles to Show/MIZ when Taker's music hit. That was the one time it made perfect sense, cause Shawn was so obsessed with Taker.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Stranger in the AlpsOctober 24, 2014 at 6:53 PM

    I would spare Jobber so that he can talk to himself when I'm asleep.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Posted this the other day but how about in order to freshen up the dead zone that's fall in the WWE, they run a 32-man tournament across the shows leading to the final four at Survivor Series. Winner gets a shot at the title at the Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  98. It would be good if they haven't already discredited a lot of guys. Not the worse Idea but Vince seems to hate tournaments. It would be something to promote on a RAW every week. Until they want to present wrestling as a sport then I can't see this happening.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Spoiler alert: The company dies

    ReplyDelete
  100. I have a business associate who is a Facebook friend... he just posted complaining about how his cleaning lady used some of his hand sanitizer and it bothers him... am I wrong for wanting to punch him in the cunt for being such a snob... am I over reacting?

    ReplyDelete
  101. They are a black eye on the blog and should be relegated to their own personal blog.

    Today's hug goes to: Koko b. Flair for just saying to ignore the shitty recaps.

    Today's punch goes to Danielle and Matt for writing those shitty recaps.

    ER, that's it.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I know the general consensus is that "tournaments are awesome", but I find them to be lazy booking. meh.

    ReplyDelete
  103. ThebrazilianpsychoOctober 24, 2014 at 6:59 PM

    You're not wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  104. WCW1987 and the other 3 people that watch TNA are grateful.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I've always thought a good way to get a guy over would be to have him make an underdog run in a long tournament to really get the crowd behind them. Even if he loses in the final four/finals, the crowd would still be really into him.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Tournaments are good in order to book challengers for titles. It's something that when done right they can instantly create feuds and challengers.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Sounds like an entitled prick. You're correct in your violent urges.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Tournaments are usually booked horribly but there's room for creativity in them with the right people involved. I've always felt if they did a big one that emulates the NCAA March Madness tournament with a lot of upsets, it could get some new guys over.

    ReplyDelete
  109. um... she's a cleaning lady. shouldn't her being clean be a GOOD THING??

    ReplyDelete
  110. To have been in the room when JR and Gorilla Monsoon were shown their costumes for WrestleMania 9...

    ReplyDelete
  111. He is wrong! His white businessman acquaintance employs a filthy South American woman to clean his mansion, and she steals his cleaning products! Bomb the entire continent, I say!

    ReplyDelete
  112. No he's a prick. If he's so worried about preserving his precious hand sanitiser he should clean his own fucking house like 99% of people do.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I think his problem was that she used HIS hand sanitizer.

    ReplyDelete
  114. That was my thought. I can see if she took the bottle home or something... but this just bewildered me.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I think his problem is that he is a moronic dick.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Actually he is Latino his last name is Valderama for fucks sake.

    Constantine is on tonight, right? Hulu tomorrow, baby. Read a great article on Slate today about the history of the character. A little bare bones on some of Alan Moore's comments about John Constantine, but it was still pretty cool.


    Has the show aired already? Stupid lack of cable.

  118. Stranger in the AlpsOctober 24, 2014 at 7:06 PM

  124. No he would have been busy banging a celebrity that should by all rights be out of his league (seriously how does that guy pull the ass he does? Is it a Latino thing?)

    ReplyDelete
  125. Extant1979 Most Must-See BoDerOctober 24, 2014 at 7:09 PM

    Yes, but the story he's told about running into John Constantine and talking to him was always kind of awesome.


    Otherwise, I think Moore is a bit of an overprotected prick.

  134. I've been looking forward to this tv show. Hopefully its a good adaption.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Man, WM9 is not the show you want playing when a non-wrestling fan walks into the room. In the first 10 minutes you've got the announcers in Roman costumes, then Shawn Michaels' typical ridiculous outfit, then Luna, then Tatanka, then Sherri Martel. What a freak show.

    ReplyDelete

    Undertaker always kept one on hand in the event that IRS wanted to lecture them about W-2's and 1099's.


    He would use it on himself.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Just to show I am well balanced in the type of asshole friends I have... another friend has a job offer in the same line of work he is in for a boos he knows, and more money... when asked if he was going to take it he said "What I would really like to do is ride out my current job until it goes under (which it is likely to do) then live off unemployment until it runs out THEN take the other job."

He is 37 lives with his mom, has only ever not lived with his mom for like a year, is a virgin, and is perfectly content to keep living at home until his mom dies and he inherits her house and considerable money and sees nothing wrong with any of this (except the virgin thing I guess).
