Got done reading the Ricardo Shoot interview and the thread below. So depressing.
After nine straight days of work, finally looking forward to my weekend off...
I'm at work not and trying to block out the face that I have 4 hours tomorrow.
Yes but it led to lots of ice pack jokes this week so there's that.
Watching a movie called "The Guest". This film is surprisingly dope!
Just finished reading Bill Simmons, NFL column. I just want to take the time to say that fucking hate Bill Simmons.
I didn't even get halfway through.
The weekend can not get here soon enough. ugggghhhh
My boss' last day was today, so the crew is taking him out for a few drinks. Totally cuts into Far Cry 4 time.
The only saving grace is that most of his NFL columns are mailbags, and his readers are better then he is.
I saw it in theaters. It was...disturbing
That is true. He's completely mailed these in. Not even sure why he still does it. Even some of the responses were mailed-in. He just posted links to old mailbags or videos he's used at least 20 times already
I've seen disturbing-er.
So don't go. It's not like he can fire you.
I want to give a big FUCK YOU to Arthur Chu as he FAILS to win the Tournament of Champions on Jeopardy.I hate that guy.
He's a really good dude and treated us really well. I can't be a dick ALL of the time.
Did he win too many times on jeopardy and refuse to put younger talent over, or lay around on the set to long before giving his final answer?
Tomorrow's SNL Classic is Paul Simon/George Harrison. Holy shit
Just his strategy and arrogance, dude; but I like your response.
Nowhere to go, nothing to watch.
Also, the radio market I live in has three Top 40 radio stations, and they all seem to play the same song within 5 minutes of each other. Whenever I'm giving the step-kid a ride somewhere, he listens to that garbage.If I hear Jeremih's "Don't Tell 'Em" one more time, I'm tearing the antenna out of my car.
I'm at work...have 4 more hours tomorrow morning and the only new show I have saved on my DVR is Red Band but I want to wait until tomorrow night so I can watch it drunk....it's one of those shows that's pretty good sober but REALLY good drunk.
Womp. Womp. Womp.
If The Authority loses power at Survivor Series? Who do they lose it to exactly?I know the angles terrible with Vince adding the stip for no reason,John Cena actually being a model employee and HHH not bothering to wrestle with so much on the line for him personally but man did any of those soap opera reject writers think any of this through?
I assumed they lose it to Grumpy Cat.
You cannot even blame the writers. Look at NXT; it's filled with writers, and the product is very good. I blame the people who are in charge.
They should go with total nonstop anarchy.
I'll be watching the new Hunger Games flick. *Actual* entertainment, for once. What a concept!
I may make it a double feature and watch Birdman after that.
Bootleg Birdman and send it to me.
If you use ice packs, we'll all use ice packs...it's be anarchy.
Like, I saw this movie about these toys, right? And when no one is around, they come to life! There's a cowboy and a spaceman and a dinosaur and a slinky dog...it's unreal and loads of fun!But here's where the disturbing part comes...the boy who owns them, who the toys adore, doesn't want to play with them anymore...it's like he doesn't even care about the noble toys that gave him such happiness as a child.Sniff.
LOL at another HHH 17 minute and counting promo to open Smackdown!
Blah is right.
I hope the Authority losing arcs the company in a bigger and better direction.....even though them losing this match is by far the most anticlimactic way to disband the Authority.
I like how Honky just says F it and gets counted out when he's by himself vs. Savage, Steamboat, and Jake.
Back to playing Fire Pro returns.
Or maybe do that move when you're going to shake someone's hand but then wave it over your slicked-back hair instead.
The Detroit Pistons would adopt a similar stragety years later against the bulls. Although I approved cause fuck Jordan and Pippin.
Top 5 WWE in-ring workers: Rollins, Cesaro, Zayn, Ambrose Harper
Top 5 mic workers?
I think I'd probably put Itami and Balor above Ambrose. Maybe even Harper, too.
Other than Ambrose, I don't think anyone is really exceptional.
Not that it matters at all, but I want to see Wall/Beal destroy Irving/Waiters for "best backcourt".Waiter's ego is something else. Never heard that much talk for a player who hasn't figured it out yet.
Still don't believe they are losing.
Balor is catching on. Itami is not there yet.
Wait a minute. We had this whole kerfuffle this afternoon about you putting Harper as one of the best big men of all-time based on what he accomplished outside of WWE on the independents. And you're saying KENTA, a Japanese superstar who has won multiple titles in Japan's biggest feds, is "not there yet"?
Well, allow me to retort. Hulk Hogan must be a better worker than most people because he has won multiple titles.
Orton, Rollins, Ambrose, Cena, Lesnar.
Probably Wyatt, Ambrose, Cena, Triple H and Steph sadly.
You're unbelievable if you think Luke Harper is a better worker than KENTA.
And I said this when?
Sigh...by saying he's "not there yet" and putting Harper in your top five in-ring workers over KENTA.
He isn't there yet in terms of adapting to WWE's is what I was saying. But let's jump to conclusions, shall we?
Kenta's kind of flubbing on WWE style, Harper adapted awesomely.
So with the Survivor Series coming up here are my thoughts on Montreal....After watching the tape I am CONVINCED that the DOA/Truth Comission match was a work.
To be fair, KENTA hasn't really had a chance to go all-out. And Harper hasn't really had a notable singles match yet although his tag matches were pretty good. I think I'd put Ziggler on the list, too or at least an honourable mention. When was the last time he had a bad match?
Heyman definitely wins the best in promos award of WON.
Well, maybe you should have said it.
"Top 5 WWE in-ring workers: Rollins, Cesaro, Zayn, Ambrose, Harper"Balor is catching on. Itami is not there yet."....
I like KENTA. But, let's face it, he went to the Teddy Hart school of psychology. The more movez you do and the harder you hit people, the best the match is.
I don't mind him hunting for Daiky Doubles, that's a pretty common top tier tactic for ages, it's his frequent talking over Alex that bugs me. I thought part of the screening process was weeding out people who don't know the give and take flow of interacting with the host.
Cena, Zayn, Cesaro, Rollins, Itami/Balor tied.
WOMB THERE IT IS
The guy's had like two matches? Let's write him off completely!
Curse of les Boulez might finally be lifted...
Life begins at conception.
BTW, got back to simulating FPR.
What are you simulating tonight?
I'm only picking main roster so...Rollins, Ambrose, Cesaro, Orton, Bryan
Clearly, I was talking about his ROH and NOAH work. I've seen KENTA's work for almost a decade now. And, I'm glad he's in WWE, where he'll learn more about storytelling, less is more, psychology - and more importantly - selling.
Not writing him off per se, but you can't put him there yet.
BOOM! SHOCKALAKA SHOCKALAKA SCHOCKALAKA
Going and seeing the new Hunger Games with the wife, and then later probably finishing watching the 1989 Survivor Series.
Are you playing NBA Jam? If so....cool!
nah. Just playing off the womb there it is.
The CNW world title is now hostage, Mirko Cro Cop squashed KENTA. Cro Cop wants to destroy professional wrestling forever.Ishii continues to defend the TV, he had his last defense against Shiro Koshinaka in MOTYC.The tag titles are now in the hands of Junior Stars (Koji Kanemoto and Minoru Tanaka), right now they're making a title defense against CIMA and "Speed Star" Masato Yoshino.
Hogan and Katniss survive...Ventura and Snow get mad about it....sorry to spoil it for you.
I was specifically talking about WWE wrestlers.
Have Toru Yano challenge Cro Cop!
Love that game.
Selling is a concept that Japanese wrestling is not very tolerant.
Sixers down 90-58 with 4 minutes left the third quarter at home against the Suns. LOL
Mostly, I didn't put them up there because they've wrestled a whole two matches.
Ziggler gets #6 tho
I read the article on almost SurSer teams today and I'm still trying to figure out what The Berzerker was all about. I don't recall him ever doing anything heelish or babyfaceish. She just said huss and called it a day.
The CEO and former tag team champ(me) is planning to call Vader to get Cro Cop's head, and I'm challenging the winners of the tag match.The hiatus is due college.
AJPW had some of the best pure sellers in the world. I watch some NJPW matches, where the brunt of the match is working on the leg, and then the dude who makes his comeback brushes it off like it never happened. I feel like screaming, "What the fuck are you doing?"
He was about hussing and knocking people over the top rope. What's to get?
Wasn't Vader champ before?
Tried to impale The Undertaker with his sord once.
Has Ambrose really shown that much yet? I'm not trying to start an argument but all his matches have been gimmicks. Hmm...Ziggler or Ambrose...who's the better worker?
Now that you put it that way.....
If WWE wants to change things up a bit, they can use an on-air kayfabe booking committee.Mick Foley, Fit Finlay, and Dean Malenko, or other combos.
You're off your damn rocker! It was the shootiest shoot that ever shot!
Didn't he carry a big honkin' sword to ringside? And tried to stab Taker with it once?Oh, and he chunked opponents over the top rope. And was with Mr. Fuji.
That pisses me off every time, as much I'm Ishii mark. I hate his no-selling spots.
I don't remember the UT thing. When was this?
Those are my five and six. We've got a distinct bar everybody on the roster seems to be at. It's higher than it used to be, but now nobody has promo skills.
He would beat up dudes and win by count-out.
Well ESPN is screwed up on thanks to those dildos at Time Warner...sigh...so Smackdown it is...ugh
Yes, he lost the title to Takao Omori. Then Omori lost to Kenta.
A Saturday Night Main Event...I think...not sure.
Wrestling Challenge maybe. Bayless should be up to that review in a few years.
Love the avatar
It would mean so much if he did it less. He overkills the no-selling, and it's the main reason I never considered him an elite wrestler.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAjGhWl1EoABerserker actually HITS Taker with the sword. But misses the stab.
Mark Henry is pretty good when he's inspired.
Foley and Hogan...Come on TELL me that wouldn't produce some fun moments?
Dude is all like "yeah yeah, shut up and give me Things in My Anus for $1200".
It's sad that we have to get far enough in the thought process to get to Henry. I also gave Bug Shiw consideration.
Him no selling yujiro's low blow made me cut some stars in my match rating. But I still consider him to be the best wrestler of 2014.
That would be pretty funny, actually. The Hoke N' Sock Connection!
Bryan is number 1 on any list when he's active.
Junior Stars retain the tag belts after a knee bar of Tanaka to Yoshino.
I'm going out to find me some STEALS on BLACK Friday
Do Cro Cop vs. Vader in a cage.
Flair needs a paycheck, can he come too?
Steal from Walmart. They deserve it.
The best wrestling game EVAH!
Yes but he has to show up drunk.
The local Walmart made the news when two meth heads just waltzed out the front doors with two shopping carts full of electronics. Just walked right out, without anyone stopping them.
First I have to negotiate with Vader, a CEO's life is not easy. ahahaha.
At what point does Adam Silver call the owner? 0-20?
What's the record for worst start to a season for the Big 4 leagues?
I...I have new respect for meth heads.
Nets were 0-18. Never forgive, never forget.
The Orioles started out 0-23.
Everyone knew this was coming
Never underestimate the ingenuity of meth/crack heads looking to get their fix
Offer him some chinese food
StarDust is cracking me up on commentary with his cackling.
Dean Ambrose's survival tips? Does this mean more Prop Comedy?
For sure, but Goddamn. Shit is disgraceful already, haha.
Have Cena leech your heat, avoid holograms and hop back on the midcard treadmill?
He's great at facial expressions, storytelling and psychology. Ambrose is better than Ziggler because he makes you care more about his matches.
Don't you come at the king like that!
At this point, would you be more worried that Ambrose is the best they can do creatively or just them Reigns-otaging him?
For those who have beaten Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD, I got to Hyrule Castle today. Am I about halfway through?
Good Christ...in baseball, you should catch a break by then.
Calm down....he's not going to steal black people. Wait..that's not what your doing Stranger, right?
Let me check the calendar.Oh snap! I thought it said 1814!
But... but I came hard!
You haven't changed your calendar in 200 years?I've got a Far Side one.
The All-American GM - HoganThe Extreme GM - FoleyThe Drunk GM - Flair
My roommate did that at grocery stores for years. He'd walk out with $400 in food and nobody stopped him.
If I was going to play video games again, Ocarina of Time would be one I'd go back to.
0-21 in 1988, but that's little consolation.That start actually got Cal Ripken's dad fired as manager.
I know it's partially because I am at work and my brain is fried but I literally have tears coming out of my eyes from holding in laughter right now.
I don't think they'll win a single game this season.
Why are they saying that Ryback/Slow could get fired?
Mine is sepia-toned ladies showing a little leg.
Top TNA wrestlers: Aries, Roode, Low Ki, James Storm, and Lashley I guess.
He'd just book himself vs Ricky Steamboat 50 times.
And those women were arrested for lewd, pornographic secular behaviour.
Never played that. Waiting to see if they ever drop it on the Wii U shop. Probably won't though because they haven't put any 64 games on there.
When Lashley's in your top five....
Because HHH added a stip that if Team Cena loses on Sunday they all get fired...except for John Cena.
200 years after they would have been burned at the stake!History is AWESOME!
The roster sucks.
They're saying everyone but Cena on his team could be fired. This angle is just stupid.
What and what!?Get yourself an emulator or an original N64 console immediately.
Hey, you got nude pics bb?
Roode, Aries, Jeff Hardy, Angle, Edwards
Oh good God....CENAWINSLOL
Ambrose cuts a good promo. And his jacket is fantastic.
Walmart fires their employees if they try to stop em, so fuck em.
You know what's great about history? I, as a white man, would've been treated decently in almost any era.U-S-A! U-S-A!
Yes, I have topless photo. Vwould you like to see?
Can he even wrestle anymore, nevermind good?
How does this happen?
Yes, one with tits please!
i prefer reading those than most of his nba is great columns
If you have a 3ds, get if for that. It is significantly better looking and has the master quest.
He's returning in January. Had some fine matches with Roode earlier this year.
I was not aware of this. It must be a safety/liability thing.
Does he still whore out his finishers?
You know that got me to thinking. Sort of sums up WWF/WCW/ECW from the late 90's.Austin-Fun DrunkSandman-Angry DrunkHall-Sad pathetic drunk.
Not so much anymore.
Most "big box" stores have that policy. And it's exactly what you think it is.
I like Angle when he doesn't whore out his finishers to add cheap, fabricated drama into it. I never understood why people thought a match was so great when it has no build and instead is just a bunch of finishers with no transitions. I
Replace Storm with Sanada.
Stick Sanada up your asshole.
Stop being a cunt to the guy.
I don't have a problem with Angle's' psychology because the "finisher whoring" doesn't go on for entire matches or 10 minutes. You'll usually get the last 5-7 minutes of the match with finisher trading or guys kicking out of finishers with him, but how much different really is that from the WWE and TNA main event scene nowadays?
Eh, I tried.
