  1. Impact really doesn't look that bad, but I just can't get myself to care about that company anymore.

  4. No Cena = ratings!

  5. I'm waiting for there to be a news item about a change in creative. Raw has certainly felt a lot different the past two weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Orton=Ratingz!!!




    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    ReplyDelete
  7. See..Without Cena raitings go up!!!!.or you know..there isn't any real rhyme or reason to one weeks rating trend

    ReplyDelete
  8. Definitely not. One week people care, the next they don't.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Apparently Rock vs. Triple H at Mania is going to do the avatar thing.

  13. Watching this Warrior/DiBiase match from Tokyo. Crowd sounds super weird. I'm guessing Vince dubbed in crowd noise after the fact.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just ordered the Bischoff, Ricardo, Hawkins, and Long shoots from RF Video

    ReplyDelete
  15. I saw a YouTube version of it where the crowd was decidedly pro-DiBiase.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mine as well take another vacation because the BoD is going to want you to review the Bischoff shoot.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I heard it is good but he did not talk about TNA at all. Might have been due to a legal reason but I am not sure about that.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's the weird unison Yay! noise. They do it for Warrior too. Sounds fishy.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What could he say about TNA that hasn't been said from other shoots/interviews?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well well well, look who finally showed up!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Been watching random shit on the network all morning. Watched Flair vs Piper from Survivor Series 90. It's a good match but it's so frustrating because it was headed towards being an all time classic until they DQ'd everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've been a metal guy most of my life but even I have to admit that first Weezer album was a classic. One of the best all around albums ever made.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So is this the 2nd to last impact?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Quick! Someone is criticizing WWE in the 411 comments section! If you hurry, you can catch him before they go to Wrestlezone!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Third, there's two weeks left after this one.

    ReplyDelete
  26. They do that one big spoiler yet?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I wonder how low of an offer TNA can take from Spike or another network.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think he mentioned something on the Austin podcast to that effect.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hey, remember when everyone pretended the WHOLE WORLD was watching Breaking Bad?

    A randow Raw in November gets 2/3 the ratings, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I usually dig your shit Marv, but no one ever said that.

    ReplyDelete
  31. You have been horrible in the past few days, even by your standards.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Um, everyone said it for months last year.

    You've got to watch it, EVERYONE is watching it! That's all I ever heard during the final season.

    Everyone meaning less than 2% of the country I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  33. It ain't Walking Dead, that's for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Just reading the news. I guess the democrats did about as well last night as Stasiak and Pulombo did in their late 2000 with DDP and Nash.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Was that....was that AN OPINION?!?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't follow politics at all, but... That bad, eh??

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nah. Stasiak and Palumbo fought.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Gonna suck for Obama he's gonna have an obstructionist congres.....hahahahaha, oh who fucking cares

    ReplyDelete
  39. No, it was "you've got to watch it, it's soooo good!" Not "everyone is watching it".

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lol buried hard like RVD in 2001

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Democrats did pretty shitty. Somehow people who voted Republican also voted for minimum wage hikes and weed in red states. We should just stop trying to figure this country out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Umm... I have tons of opinions. They just happen to differ from the general consensus. So... HUH??

    ReplyDelete
  43. So is Obama still president and all?

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's easy. 50% of the country are morons. A larger percentage of those 50% voted this time, as opposed to the other 50%. This is math.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I remember the final episode being sold as some communal experience that if you missed you'd never be able to recapture.

    Regardless I find it interesting that a show with literally the entire media machine behind it trying to promote it barely cracked 2 million more viewers than a random Cena-less Raw in November.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Well you might as well discount everyone under 17 years old, and everyone over 65. The target audience % would no doubt be way more impressive

    ReplyDelete
  47. I watched the first ten minutes of the first episode and wasn't entertained. I know that's a terrible reason to stop watching but I just don't think I would be interested in the show.

    ReplyDelete
  48. That's surprising. I always said that if you watch the first 2 episodes, you're hooked. Guess it's not unanimous.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yeah I didn't bother checking out if the dumb minimum wage hike passed here, can't wait for those people to feel super rich! And to have to buy $9 gallons of milk cuz....super rich!

    ReplyDelete
  50. The first few episodes are a little dry, but trust - it really fucking picks up

    ReplyDelete
  51. But they are so effing dumb. South Dakota, Arkansas, Nebraska and Alaska. Four bloody red states who voted for a bunch of repugnant assholes and those voters said RAISE OUR MINIMUM WAGE, something that Republicans think is evil. It's so, so stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm not sure why milk is going to be $9.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The final episode of Breaking Bad was watched by over 10 million viewers.

    The only way that the final episode of Raw gets 10 million viewers is if Vince McMahon dreams about it.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Buried like the WWE Network.

    ReplyDelete
  55. If Bryan Cranston hadn't decided to act his ass off that show would've been over by the end of the first season.

    The writing couldn't be worse, well ok it wasn't LOST but it was bad.

    ReplyDelete
  56. You pretty much hit it on the head.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I heard a old woman who was VERY pissed off because the Presidential election was left off her ballot

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm talking about the average over the last season, the final episode isn't easy to quantify since every media outlet in the country spent two weeks screaming about how everyone should watch it, no sporting event but the superbowl will ever get that treatment.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Because the minimum wage is going to $16.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Serious? What was so bad about the writing?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I don't think milk is price indexed into the minimum wage.

    ReplyDelete
  62. the milk comes from Scarlett Johansson's tits

    ReplyDelete
  63. Kudos to OR and AK. Cali needs to go full out and totally legalize weed now too.

    ReplyDelete
  64. You can tell from episode 1 they have no direction, they're just sort of writing and figuring it out as they go (hence that awesome season 2 teaser with the floating bear that eventually meant NOTHING, they wrote themselves into a corner)

    Gilligan was on lots of shows at the end of the series basically patting himself on the back for "taking the adventure with the viewer because he had no idea what was going to happen either!" That's not the hallmark of a good writer. Aaron Sorkin shits in Vince Gilligan's gym bags on the regular.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Well at least I voted for the 90's songs over at PTBN!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Which were...

    ReplyDelete
  67. No but the guy milking the cows and producing the milk in the factories....he now gets a $7 raise, that has to be reflected in the price.

    What I mean is that, just because the wage increased won't make anyone more well off, everything will stay exactly the same because all the overhead to produce products just raised as well.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Adam "Colorado" CurryNovember 5, 2014 at 10:20 AM

    D.C.legalized it too, though Congress can (and almost certainly will) overturn it.

    ReplyDelete
  69. You can't say he's a bad writer because his methods were unconventional - the writing and especially dialogue itself was awesome. Same with LOST - the show got a lot of grief despite its massive success but the actual characters and dialogue was fantastic

    ReplyDelete
  70. Conservative folklore about what happens when minimum wage goes up.

    ReplyDelete
  71. first 3 seasons of lost, yes.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Biff Kensington IIINovember 5, 2014 at 10:21 AM

    Not to piss in anyone's breakfast cereal around here, but watching the reactions to last night's (this morning's?) election returns was comedic gold. Both here and elsewhere, the competing jubilation and butthurt have been cathartic.


    Also, reports that Alaska's senate race will go to the Republicans is now out, VA still undecided.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ace of Base of GTFO

    ReplyDelete
  74. Yeah, get that strawman good!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Brandy, weezer, snoop, Radiohead, ace of base.
    I forgot who I voted for yesteday for it though.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Or just, math. If the guy making the help just got an insane wage raise for no reason, how would that NOT affect the price of the milk he has to sell to pay himself?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sounds like this blog after a Raw or PPV that was deemed horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  78. After Jobber mentioned Place to Be Nation, you guys gotta listen to the Summerslam 03 review Scott and Justin did. Justin's usually a really calm guy but when they went over the finish to the main event he got VERY heated. I was about to fall asleep but that really entertained me.

    ReplyDelete
  79. The election that matters! Your vote really counts here!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Lol, same, will be easier once they really cut the field down to remember though.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Let's go D Rose Let's.....oh, damn.....again lol

    ReplyDelete
  82. Heck yeah... they were in my five votes for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm a 90's kid. I definitely remember how big they were. I'll vote for them for a few rounds.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I don't have the energy to get into it this time. Maybe some other time. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. It's Austrian economics and it doesn't always work, and it certainly doesn't work over night like that or on a one for one basis.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Flash-sideways, they can seriously fuck themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  87. That's the Goldberg Elimination Chamber match, right?

    My blood is slightly rising just mentioning it.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Correct.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Biff Kensington IIINovember 5, 2014 at 10:23 AM

    It's always glorious to see a poster go for the proverbial streaking reaction in unbridled excitement, while the very next poster bemoans the enslavement of the human race thanks to the election results. Kind of like sneezing and farting at the same time, you don't know what to think.

    ReplyDelete
  90. You know I have been watching BB on Netflix... I really don't see what all the fuss was about.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Eh, not a bad reason. I didn't watch The Wire for the same reason. If it doesn't grab you right away, who the hell has time to sit around and wait for a show to be good? I think Breaking Bad was awesome and some people are always gonna be contrarians for the sake of contrarianism, but no, not being compelled within the first episode of a show is a perfectly good reason to not watch it.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Translation: I don't want to look like an idiot again.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I'm averse to watching a lot of PPVs otherwise good because of terrible endings.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Goldberg winning there makes the whole outlook of that show much different IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Personally I'm all for totally unskilled garbage people making as much as people with a degree, let's even the playing field out to the lowest possible level, lol.

    I don't think it would be instant, but people acting like an insane $5 increase in their hourly wages is somehow going to make them better off is hilarious. A lot of people probably just voted themselves off the welfare rolls.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I don't like how Brandy's song is in last place. That was a huge song when I was in like 8th grade. Even Kobe Bryant had her go to the prom with him because Brandy was so huge. Plus she was in 90's movies. Come on!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I never watched the show when it first aired. My wife and I started watching it this weekend on Netflix. I agree that the first episode was a little slow at first, but we stuck it out and now we are hooked. I like the fact that the story is always moving. Always going somewhere. I haven't watched an episode yet that I would classify as "filler".

    ReplyDelete
  98. ....wrestling is also pretty popular and nothing really grabs the nation's attention at large in an age of fragmented media/entertainment? That seems like the most reasonable answer to me.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yeah the plot and where they decide to take the story is one thing, but as far as developing complex, interesting characters and actual dialogue between characters covering themes etc - both shows were A+

    ReplyDelete
  100. I lived through Brandy. I thought she was as likable as a Gucci bag full of dirty diapers.

    ReplyDelete
  101. The Sign> All That She Wants

    ReplyDelete
  102. I think it's funny that you're so convinced this bothers me.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I am just going to move on from this conversation, your points are all over the place and since you don't vote your opinion doesn't matter on these issues anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Biff Kensington IIINovember 5, 2014 at 10:26 AM

    Legit lol for that one.

    ReplyDelete
  105. They only legalized being able to grow your own at home. Stores can't sell it yet

    ReplyDelete
  106. Damn right. Sort of like if you don't watch Raw, then your opinion doesn't.... NEVERMIND!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  107. But see, we as a nation have to look at things from the "me" perspective. What affects ME now? They're gonna take MY money? They're gonna take MY guns? They're gonna let illegals in the country to take MY job? MEEEEE!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. That's a good thing. I hate Walking Dead. Way too many filler episodes for me. That, plus I have already seen the show. It was called LOST.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I am impartial, but Even Rey Mysterio is laughing at how fragile D Rose is.

    ReplyDelete
  110. You went apeshit the first time I said he'd be useless to your team.

    Complete, vaginal secretion, ape shit.

    So say whatever you want, your behavior says different.

    Also since I wasn't straw manning at all, nor even making an argument about Breaking Bad's quality, I figured we'd go ahead and spin off the rails.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I voted for:
    Murder Was The Case
    Say It Ain't So
    Creep
    Rosa Parks
    Sittin Up in My Room

    ReplyDelete
  112. Who said I didn't vote?

    My point is totally on track, a minimum wage increase is silly and does nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yup, I am hoping the Sign makes a big run in this thing.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I voted for that song.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I am hoping Rosa Parks pushes into the top five... it was really low early on

    ReplyDelete
  116. But, but I love my knockoff WWE/WWF shirts!

    How can they do this?!?!?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Yah me too, tough pool for her though for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Same here. I really liked the first album a lot in high school. I can't really stand Weezer anymore but I enjoyed the Blue Album and Pinkerton back then.

    ReplyDelete
  119. People on minimum wage are still poor despite the minimum wage increasing pretty regularly in my life time. Ta-da.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've been watching waaaaay too much 2000 wcw recently and the feud between the insiders and the perfect event is fascinating to me. I really want to see the Nitros to really get the full glory of it all. This is a feud that DX vs The Spirit Squad would say went too far as a burial of new talent.

  121. Gunther the Nasty LoserNovember 5, 2014 at 10:32 AM

    For all the Breaking Bad finale talk (or any finale for that matter), M*A*S*H says hi.

    Actually, it says Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen

    ReplyDelete
  122. ok, ok, i'll summon up the energy for just ONE post.


    I understand the Booker T outrage. I understand the RVD outrage. They lost their title matches relatively clean, then got shunted down to the midcard. I don't think they even got rematches. So it DID hurt them very badly.


    The Goldberg thing is just a NON FACTOR, because HE WON THE TITLE ON HIS FIRST REMATCH. So really, it had ZERO impact on the long run. ZERO. He was still very over as champ, and he was still leaving at WM 20 no matter what. How this is still an issue over a decade later, because they decide to stretch the chase one simple month, is mind boggling to me.


    Ok, end rant. Just saying, it didn't matter. :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Fair enough. I mean, that's still an untrue argument, for whatever it's worth. Just from the first two games of this year it's obvious he's physically back pretty much all the way. Even 50-60 games of the DRose we've seen so far this year will make the Bulls 8-10 wins better, easily. But while I love the kid, he has zero pain tolerance and zero ability to play at less than 100 percent because his cumstain brother coddled him his entire life.

    I have no recollection of said argument, but going apeshit doesn't sound like something I'd do unless we're defining that term in wildly different manners. I think it's far more likely I was bored at work (much like now) and responded with something really long-winded.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Shoot, if you look at the booking after all that, you could still keep it the same way (Goldberg getting rolled on by Evolution) and it doesn't change the overall dynamic; not jobbing in the cage just hurt what it could've been.

    ReplyDelete
  125. That isn't data. And the point of minimum wage isn't to make people not be poor. Again give me some data, not some anecdotes.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Gunther the Nasty LoserNovember 5, 2014 at 10:33 AM

    Asking for best 90's song is like asking for Jesse Baker's best booking idea

    ReplyDelete
  127. This is how I know for sure you're just working people. That was terrible booking. Terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Haha, ok well that last part may be true. And in fairness I think it might have even been the very day after ACL2 so I'm sure your nerves were pretty exposed at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Are you Dr. Facts? If so, did you lose your license to practice facts because of malpractice?

    ReplyDelete
  130. I was fine with Steiner, Booker and Nash all failing.

    But just watch that damn match. Watch it again... that would have been an all time moment and would have made Goldberg look like a monster for the first time in that run. He should have squashed Triple H like he did the rest.

    Then you have H say the injury slowed him down and that is why he gets a one-on-one rematch at Unforgiven, where Goldberg beats him clean again.

    You can't recreate THAT moment.

    Like if Austin would have won Unforgiven 98 instead of WM14, or Bryan this year.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Mostly because they stretched it past the "event" PPV.

    If that rematch was at Summerslam no complaints.

    ReplyDelete
  132. This is fucking brilliant.

    http://lolhub.com/search-id-657693-.html

    ReplyDelete
  133. I wonder how many run-ins you've seen in the last week or so.

    ReplyDelete
  134. 100% correct. Goldberg can still beat Triple H one-on-one, just as champion instead of challenger.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Why? This isn't a political forum, lol.

    People should get paid $16 an hour to work at McDonalds, I'm not even arguing with you. They totally deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Rock failed at WM 16 due to shady circumstances, then got his big rematch win at Backlash. Basically the exact same thing. And yet, his career didn't get killed.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Biff Kensington IIINovember 5, 2014 at 10:35 AM

    Brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  138. It'd be easier to figure out the average run in per match. Its over 1.0 for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Fair enough, I will give you that. I will also say that it was not his first run with the title and he was already a made man in WWE. Goldberg wasn't. That moment would have been pretty iconic for a time when they needed a big top face.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Different circumstances. Everyone knew Rock was going to be around for a while. Goldberg's shelf life (both on and off camera) was limited.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Gunther the Nasty LoserNovember 5, 2014 at 10:36 AM

    Who puts a cat in the backyard?

    ReplyDelete
  142. He did that at Survivor Series. I felt like the chase, where Goldberg claims he got screwed, and put his career on the line for 1 more title match was perfectly logical. Then as mentioned, he did the successful defense thing at Survivor Series.


    Will just say one more time, I just don't think it made a long run difference at all.

    ReplyDelete
  143. You said raising it was silly.

    And I prefer data because we (meaning anyone) can hurl our opinions all day and not have any chance at changing them. When there are facts there is a chance for a meaningful dialogue.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I'm amazed about the immigration issue. We have people from countries known for harboring terrorists freely coming into the US with student visas. They then proceed to take an elite high paying job away from a US citizen while often times sending money back to their family in their home county. Yet was get worked up about the guy taking a shit landscaping job? Student Visas are a huge drain on our economy and no one is paying attention.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Long run, no. Short term it removed what should have been one of the feel good moments of a depressing era. He got the win back, but the air was out of the balloon.

    ReplyDelete
  146. It is silly. No one is voting for it because it's a good idea, they vote for it because they want to see more money on their check, that's it. That it may or may not be a good idea is totally unrelated.

    And that last part is extra silly, I've been to political forums, no amount of figures changes shit.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I actually don't disagree in that certain aspect (Goldberg being champ, feuding with HHH/Evolution, Kane's involvement) won't change.

    But it took what could've been an epic, all-time moment and made it into a "crud" moment simply because HHH didn't want to job. You can't look at the end result and say that the decision was justified; it was dumb masturbatory booking then, it's the same now.

    And yes, this is with knowing HHH jobbed in 2 consecutive PPVs.

    ReplyDelete
  148. As far as this most recent injury...I'm glad he sat out Saturday night because NBA teams could learn from the Spurs and rest even their healthy stars on the second night of back-to-backs. I was pretty annoyed he didn't play last night, but there's no need to risk anything this early in the year, especially with the string of chumps the Bulls are playing this month. Might as well sit out the rest of the week and make sure it's 100 percent, with Milwaukee and Philly coming up.

    ReplyDelete
  149. It made absolute zero sense not to have him win at that moment, especially since Triple H was really banged up and out of shape. That is exactly when he should be vulnerable and get run over. WWE is about moments and they blew a layup with a super over face and a red hot crowd that was begging for him to win.

    Then you have him win in front of a dead Hershey crowd.

    "According to WrestleZone, John Cena likely missed Monday’s Raw due to film commitments."


    The Rock who?

    ReplyDelete
  151. He got a pretty damn good pop during his title win. So the "air out of the balloon" thing is not really a fact, I don't think. Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Regarding the last paragraph it is the only worthwhile way to discuss this sort of thing for the reasons I have already laid out.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Cena, Orton, Ambrose: three of the WWE's top babyfaces all missing time due to film commitments.

  156. And that's how Vince has always liked it.

  157. Not like the pop that was building in Phoenix. Booking him to have won like that was what made him in WCW.

    Him losing like he did is what ruined him in WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  158. WWE should try and find WCW's old "Hell in a Cell" type cage they used at Mayhem 2000 to replace their current mega giant plastic looking current Hell in a Cell.

  159. I'd have probably given up on it if I hadn't binge-watched it. The first season is decent but not amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Yeah, he did. But it was a forget it in a month moment instead of an all time great. It doesn't really matter in hindsight, but it's mindboggling to reason out why that choice was made.

  161. RF Video Announces Sale... 24% Off Young Man's Pants!

  162. I am Dr. Facts and no I did not lose my license to practice facts.

    I have created my alter ego The Facts like The Boz had for Brian Bosworth:

    Actually, young man's pants would be 100% off if he had his way

    24% off is only when the camera crew reveals itself

  164. I work for a living and have never been piss tested.

  165. I think this is the first time in the dozens of debates about this topic that anyone (let alone, 2 people ) have actually agreed to at least meet me 1/4 of the way. I am very happy about that. I'm not even saying "They 100% did the right thing", more like "It wasn't *THAT* big of a deal to still be enraged about it 10 years later".



    So I'll take that as a small victory. :)

    I voted for Kodos

  167. Right, but I'm not going to bother, I'll just use basic logic instead.

    If guy now gets paid $16 per hour to make burgers, those burgers aren't going to stay at a dollar a piece because his payroll across the store just went up almost 45%.

    Someone has to pay that guy to make those burgers now and the owner of McDonald's is not going to just write off the extra payroll because he's such a hip dude.



    The extra pay has to come from SOMEWHERE.

  168. Calm down, ZEB!

    ReplyDelete
  169. I hated Silverchair

    ReplyDelete
  170. More incredibly frustrating than apolacyptic business wise. The injury makes it worse because fate pretty much forced them to do the right thing and they STILL didn't do it.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Right, they really had zero reason not to do it.

    No announcement of the birthday of the MOST MUST SEE poster on SCOTT KEITH'S BLOG of DOOM - Mr. Cable Access!?! ME!


    Brian Bayless, you have failed this blog!

  173. I guess in my opinion, I saw it as the opposite. Winning the title in a 6 way gimmick match just isn't as meaningful as winning it man to man, in a straight up 1 on 1 match. So I felt they wanted to save the passing of the torch for when HHH was 100%.

    BOOOOO!

    ReplyDelete
  175. I don't give 1/2 a fuck how many people were watching BB. _I_ was watching the greatest show in the history of TV, and I was loving it. Hell, it's fucking RUINED most TV for me because it was so good.

    ReplyDelete
  176. I get that. But he still would have beaten him one on one... they were the last two left and Hunter basically hid in his pod the whole time after the early superkick. It isn't like Goldberg pinned someone else to win.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Also, the only reason I think I even remember that minor meltdown at all was because it was totally out of character.

    ReplyDelete
  178. If I ever run for political office my campaign slogan is definitely gonna be DON'T PISS ME OFF SLAPNUTS

    ReplyDelete
  179. Jesse Baker could never come up with Back That Azz Up.

    ReplyDelete
  180. *that's* what you get from that story?

    ReplyDelete
  181. Happy birthday buddy

    ReplyDelete
  182. Eh, I get you, but Goldberg ran through 3 of the 6 competitors in impressive fasion. This wasn't like winning the title in a battle royal. And HHH not being 100% was the perfect out for doing the job - that way, he gets his title matches, the beatdown still happens, and nothing else changes, other than it becomes an epic moment instead of a "meh" one.

    ReplyDelete
  183. The thing I do wonder is, I clearly remember that the 1 on 1 match was officially advertised for SummerSlam, they showed it on Raw and all. So had the injury not happened, I'm guessing Goldberg would have simply won straight up at Summer Slam? Damn injury.

    ReplyDelete
  184. WWE should take the super cage with the 3 tiers in Ready to Rumble.


    And have somebody take the DDP bump.


    That'd be insane.

  185. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 5, 2014 at 10:49 AM

    We might have to coordinate campaigns. That's EXACTLY what I want my slogan to be!

    ReplyDelete
  186. That was the same cage, wasn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  187. Yep, I think you are accurate there. It was a one on one and the next week Austin changed it to the Chamber.

    ReplyDelete
  188. The first part is true, too. MVP DRose finished 5th in the league with 19.0 EWA (estimated wins added) over 81 games, so I think it's fair to say that, say, 55ish games of the DRose we've seen so far is worth 8 or 10 wins.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Maybe we should just start a 3rd party with that as our core principal?

    ReplyDelete
  190. Quite possibly. Who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  191. Anyone around DC or Oregon? Loading right now, figured I'd offer to share with any of my new legal brethren. Welcome all.

    ReplyDelete
  192. Brandy should be in last place for everything by default due to her brother making Kim K famous

    ReplyDelete
  193. The Nitros from that period are glorious. You had Nash is all his glory killing it on the mic every night until he quit, Above Average Mike Sanders also would deliver amazing promos, there was a Yung Dragons/Ernest Miller fued that was legitimately funny and interesting, the New Blood was doing all sorts of cool stuff, and then there was 2 and a half hours of pure insanity and every idea being thrown against the wall to see what stuck.


    It was so weird and insane and I couldn't stop watching it. It's the single thing I most want on the Network...late-era Nitros.
