Me @ Survivor Series


So I'm going to be on camera and plan on bringing a few Tell 'Em Steve Dave signs, getting sloppy drunk, and yelling TELL EM STEVE DAVE as much as possible... Bad idea?

My IQ dropped 4 points just reading that e-mail and I feel like you literally owe me money for making me waste the 30 seconds that it took to read it, post this response, and come up with the insult required to sum up my feelings on it.

So, you know, whatever.

  1. While I appreciate this guys dedication to Kevin Smith movies of the past, the sell-by date for that reference has LONG since passed.

  2. never too old for a Kevin Smith reference. I still find Clerks the funniest movie of all time (probably helps that I spent 8 months working in a small grocery store in a working class town called Eureka, CA)

    ReplyDelete
  3. If you are are going to make Kevin Smith references, Might I suggest Huge black cocks with pearly white cum 4" or "You're not allowed to wrestle here anymore!" with a sign next to you saying "Yeaaaaahhhhh!!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  4. I like Chasing Amy and Clerks as much as the next guy, but Kevin Smith is a joke in 2014.

    His 2011 movie, Red State, made $1.1 million from only 5 theaters. That's pretty impressive, especially compared to his 2014 movie, Tusk. That has made $1.8 million so far... in 602 theaters.

    If he didn't prove to be so unprofessional to work with on COP OUT, or if his fanbase actually went to see his movies, more studios would be lining up to work with him.

    So his solution to his stagnant career is to do two more horror movies that probably won't break $2 million and then go back and do Clerks III.

    ReplyDelete
  5. That's because Red State has a special roadshow releasing with inflated ticket prices.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Which makes the gross look even worse. The only way it broke $1 million is because Kevin Smith fans paid $50 to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm thinking about doing this for Raw on Monday. I really am. I just need to figure out if I have much of a chance to get on camera.

    ReplyDelete
  8. agreed, but I dont think that's how Vince is using it. He is using it as a putdown to belittle the posters for taking it too seriously and to insinuate he's somehow better than them for being "above that." Or atleast that is how he comes across.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hey! I live in Eureka now!

  10. oh yeah? I went to Humboldt St. for a year. Lived on campus in Arcata but worked at C&V market part time in Eureka. Wonder if still exists. This was back in 92/93

  13. I think the one two punch of Zach and Miri being a box office bomb and Cop Out being a critical flop pushed him over the edge

    ReplyDelete
  14. Good God Kevin Smith is a bunch of crap.

    ReplyDelete
  15. that is awesome. I doubt the owner are still Gary and Janice Albee though. They were in their 60s when I was there. Gary was good people.

  16. funny thing was back then it was located next to a home brewing store and (here's the kicker) a place that ran AA meetings. Here we are offering 22 ounces of Magnum Malt Liquor for 99 cents and here is a home brewing place right next to the AA meetings. I guess you really had to want sobreity. Also had a weird group home for mentally unstable folks across the street, although they never gave me any problems other than occasionally wanting to talk to much to me.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Might as well go for the gold and create a sign that says "HOPE YOU DON'T USE 37 ICE PACKS ON YOUR WAY OUT!!!" For whenever someone from Cena's team gets eliminated

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not uh, not real proud of my region right now.

    I love the fact that the women are treated as serious competitors instead of fragile blow up dolls. It's nice to see at least one televized promotion that understands the value of female wrestlers.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's when Smith threatened to charge critics to preview his movies, which led to Roger Ebert to brilliantly tweet: "Kevin Smith thinks critics should have had to pay to see Cop Out. But Kev, then they would REALLY have hated it."

    ReplyDelete
  23. "That joke fell flatter than Walt Flanagan's dog!!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  24. Interesting that in his old age, Vince is more and more like his dad. Sr rode the Bruno and Backlund trains as long as he could...now Cena is Vince Jr's Sammatino/Backlund.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Virgil's Gimmick TableNovember 21, 2014 at 12:52 PM

    Yeah, they need to fix that booking immediately. Those are major plot holes for such a story driven show.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It wasn't intended to be a wide release. It was a small personal project that he only did the public screenings so it would eligible for awards.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Makes me wonder how old this cat is.


    I mean maturity wise I'd go with eleven, but... that's not really someone who fits into Smith's demographic. Shit, I'm 30 and I only discovered his stuff in 2002. So we're dealing with a 30 something at least who types that drivel?


    Terrifying.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why isn't anybody marveling about the fact that somehow Scott's e-mail inbox is somehow able to receive messages from 1995?! Respond to this guy and have him tell an 11-year-old me to buy Apple stock

    Tell Rollins to go to Buffalo. He can get all the ice he wants there.

    But I do see the joke and I apologize for killing it.

    By "here" you mean the BoD

    ReplyDelete
  41. Here's the thing, though. It's a fun meme for the blog, but no one in the WWE is likely to give a flying fuck or even get it. Does anyone think the backstage conversations these days revolve around Ricardo friggin' Rodriguez's shoot interview? At this point, it's possible/likely that neither Rollins nor Cena even remember the "incident."

    ReplyDelete
  42. Is this bruce Willis? This is Bruce Willis isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I don't get it. Does this somehow relate to Kevin Smith?

  47. It's ok. Sharing is caring

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm sure winning "Best Film" at the Catalonian International Film Festival made it worth it (Yes, Red State actually won that award).

    If I recall correctly, Smith said he was self-distributing to show how effective self-distribution can be, citing Passion of the Christ. Turns out Smith completely and totally underestimated his audience.


    But for argument's sake, if Red State was only meant to be a "personal project", is that the same excuse that Smith is using for Tusk bombing?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Make a sign with Bill Cosby's face with "I got two words for ya" on it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. He was great for his size. His "big matches" are often a little limited given that 90% of his offense is Powerbombs (I've seen a bunch of FMW matches where it's basically JUST that one move), but he was definitely a high-end guy. Of course, nobody in WCW or the WWF was going to be taking that many Powerbombs a night (and that's not really a bad thing).

    ReplyDelete
  51. TJ: I was just thinking...it's likely Lucha Underground will get about the same, if not better, ratings than TNA despite El Rey being less available than Destination America. So, I thought I would throw this hypothetical out there...just for the sake of discussion (I'm looking at you, WWE1987), TNA folds...who would Lucha Underground benefit from signing?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Or when a babyface gets the hot tag, yell "KICK HIS ASS, SEA BASS!!!"

    ReplyDelete
  53. No offense, but the ratings won't even be similar at all. Not even close. At least for a long time if not ever.

    ReplyDelete
  54. A better sign wouldve been IM NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE HERE TODAY

    ReplyDelete
  55. Bravo; you nailed it.

  56. Who wrote that e-mail, Special Ed Zack And Slater?

    ReplyDelete
  57. I don't even know what that means?

    ReplyDelete
  58. I guess its some kind of smodcast?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh, plenty of great movies don't do well at the box office. I agree it's not the end-all, be-all.

    But when you have a guy like Smith who has dud after dud even though he's supposedly has a HUGE fanbaset. And if critics hate your movies enough that even your diehard fanbase doesn't want to see them, well, something isn't right.

    And Jersey Girl was awful. But yeah, it's kind of been overshadowed by his even worse more recent films.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh and it was line from mall rats? Love the movie but I guess I haven't seen it enough to catch all the references.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Malenko vs. Guerrero = violent crap. Right.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Things the casual viewing audience will understand on a sign:

    #1: Austin 3:16



    #64: Pray for Scherer's dog



    #680: Blog Otters

    #5,901: TELL EM STEVE DAVE

    ReplyDelete
  63. One match I NEVER get see pimped (probably due to lack of exposure) that I remember being great = Eddie Guerrero & The Steiner Brothers vs. Dean Malenko, Cactus Jack & Too Cold Scorpio. Also Psicosis vs. Yoshihiro Tajiri from 2000 was fantastic. I went out of my way to see it after people raved about it and it totally lived up to it (at least at the time, haven't seen since.)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Sleep.
    Til

    ReplyDelete
  65. But... but Smith hit on one great formula and used it endlessly until it no longer really held the appeal it once diOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yeah, then he "voluntarily retired" from filmmaking or whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  67. And by puddin pop he means his penis.

  68. Make a bunch of signs with Arnold's ice puns from Batman and Robin.

  69. This email is totally Chasing Lame-y, amirite?

  70. I once said Mick Foley was the Kevin SMith of wrestling, but that assessment is far more accurate.

  71. That got a legitimate "LOL" from me. Bravo sir.

  72. why don't you believe it? There's been enough stories from a variety of folks about the insanity that is the WWE locker room and the strange written and unwritten rules that exist.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I was always amused by the idea of making signs featuring totally useless pieces of quotes from famous people, like:

    "Light, Enter"
    -Metallica

    "There Was, The"
    -Bret Hart

    ReplyDelete
  74. Jeez, Lodi. I know WCW was a long time ago but you could at least TRY to stay in game shape.

    ReplyDelete
  75. BTW when did scott switch from simpsons to scott pilgrim jokes?

  76. Yes, and Bret's still refusing to job.

  79. Tell Em Steve Dave is the best podcast ever. And, thankfully at this point, Kevin Smith pretty much has nothing to do with it. All he ever talks about anymore is weed. So I, for one apparently, hope to see your sign on camera. Big thumbs up!

    ReplyDelete
  80. You save all the good emails for the podcast (at placetobenation.com) now, don't you?

    ReplyDelete
  81. But its not, because the podcast by that name comes out every week, which is what I would guess he is referring to.

    They gotta get the viewers in somehow.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Tajiri/Psicosis was great, doesn't get a lot of love because it was aired after the TNN show, if i recall correctly. And the 6 man tag was clipped for years. They aired it on TV but only like 4 minutes of it. It's tough to get a cult following when you don't see the while match, like the Double Dog Collar Match.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I think Ambrose would be the better choice, although he feels still more like Austin 97 and not Austin 98. Just a little step away from the top.

    ReplyDelete
  86. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 21, 2014 at 4:04 PM

  87. If I ever get on camera at a ppv again (I'm very briefly on camera during the UT/Mabel casket match at IYH 5) it will be holding a RSPWFAQ.NET sign.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Not only are promos and commentary done in English, the commentators are Matt "I'm marking out bro" Stryker as the straight man and Vampiro ( apparently a kayfabe vampire) as the "cool" guy ex-wrestler

  91. I used to love both, but haven't listened in ages. I mean, I still loved Red State, don't hate the guy or anything, just don't find him that funny anymore. I think Ralph Garman and Scott Mosier carries him on both shows at this point. Well, at the point I stopped listening.

    A quick list of some good ones. I'm not good with dates, so I'll just put what month they were:

    Malenko vs Guerrero: Any matches they had between like April 95 to August 95

    Rey vs Psicosis: October and November 95

    Rey vs Juvi: February/March 96

    Raven and Richards vs The Pitbulls: September 95 (might be on an October episode though)

    Sabu vs Scorpio from Cyber Slam 95.

    That's just a few off the top of my head.

    And I'm not sure if it was ever in any of the episodes, but Benoit vs Al Snow from February 95 rules and I can't recommend it enough. If you can find it, check it out.

  111. I hate the "Cena Sucks" half of the dueling chants. It's completely counterproductive. All you're doing is reiterating that Cena is all that matters and whoever his opponent is can be safely ignored. That's fine when Cena is facing some random guy nobody cares about, but when he's facing guys like Bryan, Ambrose, Punk in the past, cheer for his opponent and show that you are supporting an alternative, at least with chants. "Cena Sucks" just proves everything revolves around him.

  115. Raven didn't get chubby until his second go round with ECW. He was broodingly handsome in 1996. But, yes, they had great chemistry, Raven could work the crowd and the Sandman was an extremely identifiable character.

  131. I have to disagree. They both beat him clean, one main evented WM30 and the other had the longest title reign in three decades. I think they were absolutely presented as Cena's equals.

    What separates Cena is the longevity. But at their peaks, Bryan and Punk were absolutely his peers, same as part-timers Rock and Lesnar. It's just that Cena's peak has been 10 years.
