Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O'Doomers!

It is rainy and nasty here, perfect night to make some chili and watch some TV.

Not a whole lot going on that I wanted to talk about. I listened to the JR podcast with J.J. Dillon and it's a really good one because...no one is going to out talk J.J. Dillon and he was great. Basically said the original Horseman were the best because they were organically put together by the fans as he was just managing Tully at the time. And he said the Hall of Fame version was the unquestioned best in the ring because Windham was such a great talent.

I can get with that.

Anyway TV for tonight

RAW

Steelers-Oilers Titans on Monday night football

One NHL Game but Lightning-Rangers is a pretty one to have

Nine Games from the Association as the Sixers will try to break 50 against the Spurs.

ESPN starts it's 24-hour tip-off of college basketball tonight on most of its networks. Not a CBK fan but I like a 7 a.m. basketball game as much as the next gal.

New Gotham, Castle, Blacklist, Dancing With the Stars, etc.

Enjoy and keep it clean!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Time for your twitter feeds to start filling up with selfies with Grumpy Cat!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm glad November is the new January

    ReplyDelete
  6. I think I might try to gut out tonight's episode. Excited to see what Grumpy Cat brings to the table. Hoping for a Hogan appearance. Hope they can go 3 hours without making AMBROSE look like an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ever since NBC bought Sunday, MNF has been Smackdown

    What does that make TNF? Impact?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Being a Steeler fan, I'm going to be watching more of the game...

    However, I'm intrigued to who will job to Grumpy Cat.

    A. Ryder
    B. Slater
    C. Titus
    D. Ryder

  10. I hate Thursdays, so what's lower on the hierarchy than TNA, Does ROH still fuck up their PPV feeds every time they try?

    ReplyDelete
  11. No SSW review this week. I don't review clip shows.

    ReplyDelete
  12. TNF was a terrible, terrible idea. Usually get terrible football.

    Hypocrisy by ol Roger Dodger...playing on Thursdays isn't good for safety.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It's harder than it's ever been to find a decent VCR.

    ReplyDelete
  14. E. All of the above

    ReplyDelete
  15. I will sell you one for $10000.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Tuesday Night Football was pretty sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That's the only sort of deals you can find anymore. Either insanely over priced or buyer beware, it doesn't work.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I strive for both.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'll save the small fortune and just keep hoping for a brighter tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Isn't good for cornerback either.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anyone get pounded with snow?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Not really pounded but it's been light and steady for almost 2 days here.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We got somewhat lucky here...just south of the snow belt and only got about 6 inches.

    ReplyDelete
  24. The whole every team gets on MNF at least once is killing them.

    Looks solid to me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I might actually watch RAW tonight. NO FOR REALZ.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Adam "Colorado" CurryNovember 17, 2014 at 5:33 PM

    That's Thursday, not Monday.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Right place, right time!!! I hope Grumpy Cat mentions lots of smark complaints, that would be incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I hope that he somehow wins the intercontinental championship!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah, I know, they switched it when NBC got SNF. For some reason, this game seemed particularly bleh to me.

    ReplyDelete
  31. My wife used to work in a pet store many moons ago, and at one point they had this big fat goldfish who was solid gold coloured but with 2 perfectly placed black marks above his eyes that looked like angry eyebrows. The employees called him "Angry" and were sad when he sold.


    If I'd been forward thinking enough to meme him, we could have hosted Raw!


    The fish is almost certainly dead though.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good Luck.
    Fair Enough.
    Maybe?
    No Chance In Hell?

    ReplyDelete
  33. That fish and my interest in tonight's Raw

    ReplyDelete
  34. You're the wind beneath my wings.

    ReplyDelete
  35. 100 bucks??? I'd rather be DEAD!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Watching Hardcore Heaven 95 for the first time ever. I don't know who these Dudley brothers are and I don't know why they are from the hills of Pennsylvania.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Grumpy Cat is PISSED about Bryan getting buried.

    ReplyDelete
  38. What are the BoD betting odds that Grumpy Cat scratches Steph?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I could of sworn that was Monday. Well in that case, what the fuck ESPN?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Grumpy cat wants CM Punk back.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I can't believe WCW didn't try and snag the pitbulls in 1995.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 5:43 PM

    Girlfriend has some L&CO:SVU on the Hulu, so I'm finishing up with SurSer 1995 on my tablet. Here comes the Undertaker!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ryder just had surgery and will be out for months, so it won't be him. Lucky guy.

    ReplyDelete
  44. But they did sic them on Sting circa 1999-2000

    ReplyDelete
  45. ECW shows like the worst gay bar in the history of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just wait till he tells his fantasy booking about the Invasion!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 5:45 PM

    Jesus, it's like I'm trying to watch the live feed during a PPV with all these skip backs tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 5:46 PM

    Would they be, like, the ONLY worthwhile ECW talent that didn't get picked off during the early years of the Monday Night Wars?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Grumpy Cat wanted Goldberg to go over in Elimination Chamber.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Please tell me the ppv is this Sunday. This seems like the longest build ever. Don't get me wrong, I like the fact the booking as been focused on selling the ppv match but it's just been looooooonnnnngggggg

    ReplyDelete
  51. Taz v Scorpio should be fun but I wonder if I should find some better wrestling to watch in place of raw. There is just so much shit on the network to pick from but I've ever seen this show, or N2R95 or Cyberslam 96 so I just figured I'd watch them in a row but I have big time mixed feelings on ecw. Still it holds up better than I thought it would pre network but this fucking 1995 mutant crowd is already on my fucking nerves.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Isn't there one partner left for each team to be determined?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Don't bother, it will suck.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Nope. Ryback for Cena and Harper for Authority is assumed.

    ReplyDelete
  55. So no Orton anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think Joey Styles announcing is one of the most overrated things in iwc history but he was great as an in ring interviewer.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Odds on pussy jokes?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    He's off filming a movie.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sigh...he gets a little bit of heat again and he's off TV.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Broad street bully and a bunch of other jobbers wrestling a match while the crowd boos them all...hmmm I wonder if someone will be calling an emergency rescue # or something?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Joey Styles trashing wcw slamboree while they were running a gangstas vs TPE main event is kind of funny to me.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 5:55 PM

    He needed someone to play off of, I always thought Joey Styles was better when he had a broadcast partner.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I see RG III has taken a page out of Peyton's playbook on burying teammates.

    ReplyDelete
  64. 911 was a fucking great gimmick.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Gertner was obnoxious

    ReplyDelete
  66. He's heading to Oakland.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I thought the cyrus gimmick was awesome and that guy was great at color and then styles became a good straight man for him and it worked well, but when he was by himself I never really have a shit even though from like 1995-99 he was the patron saint of iwc wrestling announcers. I strongly prefer Ross or even Vince to be honest,

    ReplyDelete
  68. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    And my tablet just flipped out before the wild card match. Guess I'm stuck with SVU.

  69. Just listened to the Curt Hawkins shoot. Great stuff.

    It's cold and snowy here, so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Big Val. Wow I didn't know they ever let that slob work a match. Against Hack Meyers huh...well the 911 was stuff was fun I guess/

    ReplyDelete
  73. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 17, 2014 at 5:59 PM

    So, I take it that Grumpy Cat is going to be here to tell her side of the story?

    ReplyDelete
  74. Chili?

    She does know about the danger of Hoss-sized holes in her wall, right?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Eva Marie got implants again.

    ReplyDelete
  76. And the YouTube comments for the car show I co-write are pretty much ripping us apart because we did another S2000.


    I always feel awful when people hate something I've done. But I try not to let it get to me, under the argument that it's far easier for people to tear something down than create something themselves.


    But then that pretty much invalidates every wrestling argument I've ever made. Blech.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I don't see why they wouldn't tailor an offense to him instead of hiring a coach who will an offense that isn't suited to him.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ok Grumpy Cat, show me what you got... cuz I got "Live And Let Die" cued up in the bluray player and I will bail on your ass.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessNovember 17, 2014 at 6:00 PM

    It's only because ECW was the be-all-end-all for the IWC at the time. I always liked Joey, but there were a lot better announcers out there.

    ReplyDelete
  80. *Another* S2000?! That well has run dry my friend.

    ReplyDelete
  81. UFC announced their full 2015 schedule today. Only 45 shows.

    ReplyDelete
  82. It's called a college offense. You gotta grow up sometime.

    Thanks for making 27 degrees nots sound so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Bitch still looks like VKM i drag to me.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Boy, Luke Harper looks like a sore thumb.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Does WWE have the guts to follow through with the stipulation and get rid of these damn Authority figures and try something fresh?

    ReplyDelete
  91. They *really* shouldn't have Rusev line up with guys that tower over him like that.

    ReplyDelete
  92. They gave up a bunch of draft picks to specifically get RG3 though. Plus he had a ton of success in the NFL running that offense. They went all in to get him so why not run the O he likes to play?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Well. I can say this with all sincerity.


    Fuck you.

  94. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 17, 2014 at 6:03 PM

  96. They're going to win, though. So, they won't duck any stips.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Biff Kensington IIINovember 17, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    Remember when wrestlers got to be badasses on their own, without having to kowtow to the boss?

    ReplyDelete
  98. That wave that Steph is doing isn't the good kind of heel heat. It's the oh this again time to change the channel sort of heat. We're well past needing the evil authority trope and this presentation of that is the saddest yet. Horrible stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Wearing headphones while watching on my laptop....fucking announcers are WAAAAAY too far in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Authority Figures have become an institution in WWE now. They are too entrenched in the idea. I doubt it's going away.

    ReplyDelete
  101. BOW DOWN TO THE KING!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Grumpy Cat don't do no jobs in front of 10,000 people

    ReplyDelete
  103. It has been officially proclaimed as Steph Heat.

    ReplyDelete
  104. *eyes bluray remote* I hear what you're saying...

    ReplyDelete
  105. Biff Kensington IIINovember 17, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    The authority trope is worn out like a $2 hoooker, but Steph is pretty good at the little nuances of gaining heel heat. She's lightyears ahead of the screeching banshee she used to be.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'm already bored.

    ReplyDelete
  107. No, 45 shows in January.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I dunno. I like it. Prefer this Steph than 2000-ERA Steph

    ReplyDelete
  109. Who would you bet on to win a foot race, Big Val from ECW or Paul Meekin from the BoD?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Unlike 14 years ago, we can't get Mick or Rock to interrupt him, though

    ReplyDelete
  111. They have been working on subtley burying him since The Rock pinked him for no apparent reason.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hey Trips....

    Come on Hunter, shoot on some people!

    ReplyDelete
  114. Masked Man to write 5,000 approving words on how Hunter acknowledging this is the same storyline as 15 years ago is actually brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Are Rusev, Henry, and Harper in The Authority now?

    ReplyDelete
  116. Meekin will never win at anything in life.

    ReplyDelete
  117. This one might work out, the pop he gets should be huge when he returns.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I would love to imagine that SS would be a reboot of WWE TV, that a evil figure head would be no more, and that Raw would be fresh again. But I know better than that.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I see Hunter is just as petty as his father-in-law

    ReplyDelete
  120. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©November 17, 2014 at 6:06 PM

    And hey, how ironic, you're WCW now.

    The WWE Model of Business.

    1. Call your fans sheep.

    2. Profit!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Yeah, you ARE WCW now, Hunter, good one.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Take THAT, all you current WCW fans out there.

    ReplyDelete
  125. HHH completely misses the irony in mentioning WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  126. WWE nearing black hole implosion from the irony of that statement...

    ReplyDelete
  127. I think it's be nice if Harper was wearing a suit...or at least a necktie with a wife beater

    ReplyDelete
  128. You know, honestly, this isn't that impressive of a team even in Kayfabe.

  133. Biff Kensington IIINovember 17, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    Shill alert! Shill alert! Pandering dickbag alert!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I would say Kane and Mark Henry are the weak links but having Rollins, Harper, and Rusev are nice pick ups

    ReplyDelete
  135. "We can't lose!... By the way the network is free for Novber!"

    Hunter with all sorts of unintentional comedy in that promo.

    ReplyDelete
  136. CruelConnectionNumber2November 17, 2014 at 6:08 PM

    If Team Cena wins, the WWE will have inmates running the asylum and WWE will turn into WCW which WWE once bought cheap on an auction block.

    ReplyDelete
  137. The beginning of BOOBGAP has reappeared.

    ReplyDelete
  138. As far as bad finishes goes, how to feel about a fat guy missing an elbow drop and then the dude he tried to drop it on pins him?

    ReplyDelete
  139. I like how HHH specifically mentioned "John Cena and Dolph Ziggler". I'm naive, but I really think Ziggler is out of the dog house. I have hope.

  143. Biggest Main Event Contract Singing EVAR

    ReplyDelete
  144. Even Stephanie is taller than him.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Survivor Series is seriously lacking in star power.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Oh god! A contract signing. I just can't. I really can't.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Stranger in the AlpsNovember 17, 2014 at 6:09 PM

    Cena has been a malcontent for years! Do you think he enjoys being the top guy?? I have it on good authority that he hates itBWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

    ReplyDelete
  148. They're bigger? Yes!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I can tell the WWE is red hot right now because there are so many people in this thread watching Raw!

    ReplyDelete
  150. OMG steph...you are just so, so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  151. CruelConnectionNumber2November 17, 2014 at 6:09 PM

    Seth Rollins looks like 1980's jobber he needs a new look.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Alright! My first show in a couple of months and I get Grumpy Cat AND a main event contract signing?


    What luck!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Red dress...

    ReplyDelete
  154. This is horrendous.

  155. Has Jamie Noble really been that small this whole time? Holy shit

    ReplyDelete
  156. It's a very nippy 59 degrees.


    It needs to be warmer.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Most twisted and sadistic monster WWE has ever seen, and he's modeling the $79.99 collection from JCPenneys.

    ReplyDelete

  160. The word of the day is...Decimate

    ReplyDelete
  161. After tonight, no more cable or TV for 8 days. Guess I will not be seeing this on DVR

    ReplyDelete
  162. Not in kayfabe though. I mean Rusev and Rollins are but Harper has never done anything on his own and as a tag team he couldn't beat the Uso's. So 2 out 5 are proven winners.

    ReplyDelete
  163. ... and Rollins and Stephanie and...

    ReplyDelete
  164. Stranger in the AlpsNovember 17, 2014 at 6:10 PM

    Brock Lesnar should defend the title against an Uso on the show or something.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Someone tell Harper not to sound like that.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I don't have anything against Kane personally, but how many main event matches--Raw and PPV--does he have to be in this year?

    ReplyDelete
  167. Well I'm only asking you lift a shoulder before the count of 3!

    ReplyDelete
  168. Biff Kensington IIINovember 17, 2014 at 6:10 PM

    Luke Harper could be awesome in a Bruiser Brody-style face role.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Ew, so crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Harper.... ey Harper...

    Don't sound like that.

    ReplyDelete
  171. ARRRRGH THE BARBARIANNovember 17, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    Well, if they shoehorn Orton into this, he'll get massively over on the virtue of being "not Cena"

  172. Damn, I was hoping Steph and Triple H was like


    "The person who delivered Ziggler to our door step...THIS MAN!"

    ReplyDelete
  175. Where are they tonight? Is it possible Grumpy Cat gets booed?

    ReplyDelete
  176. Stranger in the AlpsNovember 17, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    Just trying to recreate Bunkhouse Stampede '88 with Flair vs Hawk.


    I just watched it on the Network for only $9.99.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Harper has a good attitude by being a team player so it works in their favor

    ReplyDelete
  178. Stephanie looks bored of her own promo.

    ReplyDelete
  179. He's shrunk since his wrestling days.

    ReplyDelete
  180. I would say that it's possible no matter where they are.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Don't worry folks, the road to BoD Survivor Series will be paved tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  182. That's a great way of describing him. He's very well-rounded.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Ryback got the mini version of Hogan's weightbelt

    ReplyDelete
  184. He's a team player.
