  1. Way to phone it in Bayless. This is why you have only 1 home.

  2. I hear Ric Flair is celebrating the new year by watching a Bret Hart match http://i.minus.com/iVjpkLfVHmKiD.gif

    ReplyDelete
  3. As well as Big Show http://gifrific.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Sad-Big-Show-WWE.gif

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh please. That dude doesn't need a Bret match to cry. He probably just got finished tying his shoes and was overwhelmed by it.

    ReplyDelete
  5. What is the best intro song to Raw? I'm personally in favor of the late 1997 one.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wait.. Edge & Christian file a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the WWE and that's not news??

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm pretty sure that has more to do with a list of his creditors.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The little dog clearly went to the Hoss school of sharing.

    Wait What? Why?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Is that the one that sounds like a Biohazard jam? If so, I agree.

    ReplyDelete
  11. 'Thorn In Your Eye".. I had no idea what they were saying, but it sounded like all Hell was breaking loose.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is that the one where Bret, Austin, Ahmed and others fight in a warehouse?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh wow I should start watching ROH again https://38.media.tumblr.com/2c4ec0bfeb7f5e182adc126010038561/tumblr_ng4mx67OBR1rt59e8o2_250.gif

    ReplyDelete
  14. All the Raw intros: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EeMFxBp_Q4

    ReplyDelete
  15. Then I agree. It really fit the time period.

    ReplyDelete
  16. ...because it's an angle they'll probably drop by the Rumble?

    ReplyDelete
  17. There is an unsubstantiated rumor floating around that this is what happened to VJ. I can neither confirm nor deny.

    https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/8406392832/h5D4746F7/

    ReplyDelete
  18. Idea the WWE should do but won't: Commissioners Edge and Christian.

    Extra points if Foley appears to tell them he's proud of them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. If it's on 411Mania then it has to be true:

  20. Sodas rule!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Real smooth Seth http://i.imgflip.com/furb6.gif

    ReplyDelete
  22. He's not an A+ player like a certain dog lover we know.

    ReplyDelete
  23. "Across The Nation"

    ReplyDelete
  24. There is no way Jamiroquai should lose to the fucking Spice Girls.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Veda Scott is beautiful as well. I like how ROH and DGUSA treat the women as actual people and not just eye candy. I mean, they still show cleavage and are attractive, but they're also allowed to be people. Except for the girls in the House of Truth, but that's the point of HoT.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This can lead to Edge and Christian dropping the lawsuit only if the Authority leave and a debut of Edge's new favorite wrestler: Sami Zayn!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I know that would be... wait for it... virtual insanity!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great idea. Not just cause E&C are cool, but it'd be nice to have babyface authority figures to counteract HHH and Steph. And even though I think this joke is

    ReplyDelete
  29. A buddy of mine is a huge fan of Jamiroquai. Like, he used to go see them? him? Whatever...anyway, he has all the albums and gets upset about them being a one hit wonder. It's a lot of fun to give him grief about. I used to have Virtual Insanity as my ringtone for him just so he'd get pissed off when he found out. Good times.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Same here. 1997 fit the Raw Is War mantra perfectly

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just for that really cool video with the sliding floor, that dude deserves at least a couple wins.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My GED is holding me back.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ah. I thought maybe that is when the Dave "The Canadian" Coulier "2014: Cut It Out" New Year's Eve "program" aired.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love when people shit talk GEDs. I have a GED... I also have a MA and had a 4.0 in grad school... and while I don't spend my days doing blow off of hookers asses I am doing all right for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Same... but honestly it is just going to change the location I do nothing at as I am not being the least bit productive today... which is good for the BoD because you get ALL THE PARALLAX YOU CAN HANDLE!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've had to be a little productive, but other than one jackass it's been a fine morning.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It's a Scherer insult. Scherer is as insecure as it gets. Its pathetic. He is even insanely jealous about Meltzer to the point he censors out any mention of him or the Observer on his website.

    ReplyDelete
  38. With guests Rocky and Bullwinkle.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am aware of the origin... but I've heard other people make similar comments over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  40. As terrible as WWE was in 2014, doesn't it almost feels like WWF/WWE exists only because of 3 runs in their history?


    Hogan
    Austin
    Cena

    ReplyDelete
  41. That was a chick!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ndomakung Suh is a bitch and the league is full of pussies.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Yeah, it seems like they have one guy at any given point in time that can reliably draw, and everything else is almost filler on one level or another.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Again with the Coulier jokes!

    You guys gave the world Carrot Top! Larry The Cable Guy! Kathy Griffin! Dane Cook!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I trust you'd have no problem addressing a room full of them, informing them of your opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Last day of vacation. Been nice for sure

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think the ideal Authority figure is a semi-retired babyface who can still take bumps from a monster heel and occasional get in the ring to draw some major sympathy heat.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't get people who insult the education of others. People who had difficulty in high school can grow up to have a steady job and those who did well in school can not translate that into the work force. School and the workplace are a lot different.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Gorilla Moonsoon was perfect as president

    ReplyDelete
  50. What do you mean "you guys"!?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I ate insanely hot chicken wings last night. I like hot but this was ridiculous. I was shaking and sore after 10 minutes. Anyway, I'm on the toilet now and I suspect I'll be here for awhile.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Updates as things develop or GTFO

    ReplyDelete
  53. I actually liked the idea of HHH as the wide-eyed babyface authority figure who was in over his head back in 2011. The execution was just all wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Then it is back to doing nothing at work as opposed to home?

    ReplyDelete
  55. The 97-98 version of Thorn In Your Eye is the PERFECT wrestling song. Every time I hear it I want to powerbomb somebody through a table.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Totally agree. I just got mine because I was home schooled and had already done everything you need to do in high school and didn't want to wait.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I learned my lesson from that. I actually had to get some cream for relief. That's between me and you though. Nothing like sneaking into the drug store in the middle of the night and hoping no one catches you buying something for your burning butt hole

    ReplyDelete
  58. Night81, the Anti-American Canadian

    ReplyDelete
  59. What kind of cream does one get for a sore shit shooter? I'm asking for a friend.

    ReplyDelete
  60. That's why I volunteered to work tomorrow. Time and a half to watch movies all day

    ReplyDelete
  61. Coulier is about to start a several evening engagement in Cleveland, OH.


    He finds it more convenient to take work on the American side of the border. Where he was born.

    ReplyDelete
  62. He was the brains behind Lance Storm, Test, and Christian!

    ReplyDelete
  63. HE HATES US FOR OUR FREEDOM!

    ReplyDelete
  64. HHH wasn't ready for the role then. He was still trying to get himself over. I think he could handle it now

    ReplyDelete
  65. Try and light the gas as it escapes you.


    It'll be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  66. You know his schedule because he discussed it on the conference call all Canadians must participate in each day.

    I assume the on hold music for it is Alan Thicke singing the Growing Pains theme.

    ReplyDelete
  67. A possible heel turn on their end?

    ReplyDelete
  68. DC Comics needs a new all-powerful bad guy. Everything is Darkseid, Darkseid, Darkseid...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Reading the obscure wrestling facts on the Wrestlecrap board and this took my eye: "Highlights from Bret Hart and Chris Benoit at Mayhem 1999 are in the opening intro for Malcolm in the Middle, which premiered on January 9 2000. By the third episode on January 23rd, Hart's career was over with an injury and Benoit left for the WWF. That's only two months and two days after the event from which the match was taken."

    ReplyDelete
  70. Please tell me it said Ass Cream on the jar.

    ReplyDelete
  71. We do have an annual comedy thing here in Toronto on New Year's Eve. Tom Green is hosting this year, and he's Canadian born, but you guys can have him.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I have friends who barely graduated high school, fucked around, then got jobs after graduation and are both master electricians who make great money and have no student loan debt. Education is overrated in that aspect. Why put yourself in major debt for a degree that pays a median salary?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Bray Wyatt, Eater of Worlds, Which Explains Why He's So Goddamn Fat

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hot ass or sour ass? Hot ass is self-explanatory. Sour ass is Buffalo sauce.


    I hate both.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Life is unfaaaaaiiiir....

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hmm...he can be like DC's Galactus!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Dude, when Vader hit the Vaderbomb on him back in 1996, I was legit freaked out. That made Vader an instant player. Too bad he screwed it up by being too stiff and never washing his outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  78. You're not the boss of me now!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I was actually looking for that in the store. Wasn't bold enough to ask the cashier if they were out

    ReplyDelete
  80. Agreed. Unlike Tunney, he never would allow a miscarriage of justice. Stripping Austin of his '97 Royal Rumble title shot for instance

    ReplyDelete
  81. With 35% MORE ASS

    ReplyDelete
  82. Kind of don't.


    DC creates lot of event baddies that never get used again, or just looks much worse every time.


    I love DC, but it's very much like WWE. Push the top aging guys only. Except in comics, they either don't age, or they reboot everything back to younger.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Especially annoying is people that major in shit like "Psychology" or "Sociology" or "Philosophy" because they have tons of student loan debt, no job skills... but still act like super obnoxious intellectual hipsters.

    ReplyDelete
  84. You guys nailed it. I have a Master's in Business, emphasis in Sport Management...and it's been five years since I've worked with a Pro Team. I didn't even get a degree in Social Work, but that's the field I ended up in.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Just to start some discussion, lets look back at my 2014 NFL Mock Draft and see how that looked today. It would have looked good for Browns fans today, that's for sure.

    http://www.rspwfaq.net/2014/05/nfl-draft-live-thread.html

    ReplyDelete
  86. I never really bought Darkseid as a threat either. I know he is CRAY powerful but he just doesn't come off as that big a threat in most stories.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Those are degrees for kids who come from money.

    ReplyDelete
  88. The reason I hated babyface 2011 HHH is because he put himself over CM Punk, and made Punk the heel in their brief feud. Punk was the hottest thing in the company, and HHH squashed him like a bug.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Anti-Monitor

    ReplyDelete
  90. You also have Mort Sahl, but few people under 60 remember him

    ReplyDelete
  91. This is the closest thing I know of; not really close though.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Yeah. Then there are the "Too wishy washy or dumb" majors like Business, Criminal Justice, or Early Childhood Development.

    Happy New Year from Western Australia :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. In the thread I said that Kelvin Benjamin has bust written all over him. Shows how much I know.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Don't tell us what happens, we want it to be a surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Happy New Year

    ReplyDelete
  98. I'll probably will not be online when the times come. So, Happy new year to everyone, I really like you guys.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Anyone doing anything interesting for NYE? I always stay in on this night. Wasn't even planning on drinking, but that may change.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Past your bedtime?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Same to you. Have a Fosters for me.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I'll be with my family.

    ReplyDelete
  103. All of his really awesome things happened before the Bronze age, like before Crisis on Infinite Earths.


    The other problem is that in all of DC's media, Superman has been matching up against Darkseid quite successfully, so he's not the threat he was. He should be more Thanos level, or Doom level, or at worse, Kang/Ultron-level, but in recent years, he's been more like Wrecker-level.


    After Flashpoint, DC rebuilt him as Doom-level, but there hasn't been many appearances.

    ReplyDelete
  104. You don't think of us as family? #ThatHurts

    ReplyDelete
  105. Staying in with the girlfriend, watching Woody Allen and Hitchcock films, eating cheese, drinking nice beer and cider. Easing in to 2015.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Stop crying.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Wishing you all a Happy New Year/Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.


    2014's had some great wrestling (NJPW and NXT particularly), but it'd be nice if WWE got it together in the new year.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Harvey's is bringing back the double bacon burger - back bacon AND side bacon!

    #GOCANADA

    ReplyDelete
  109. That is exactly my problem with him. He is supposed to be a nearly all powerful god type... but Superman has pedigreed him so many times he is hard to take seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Darkseid is better when he's behind the curtain as the mastermind, like in Legends.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Chinese food, shrimp, light drinking, and probably Captain America 2.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Why? I AM NOT ASHAMED OF HOW I FEEL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  113. In Jericho's autobiography his compares his legacy to that of George Harrison.
    Harrison was one of the very best songwriters of his era but because he was in a band with the two best songwriters, he ends up very underrated. He compared this to being in the WWF alongside Rock/Austin.
    You could make the same statement about Savage

    ReplyDelete
  114. Someone, I forget who, said "A drunk is someone who drinks 364 days every year, except New Years - which is amateur night"

    ReplyDelete
  115. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 31, 2014 at 9:29 AM

    Picking up a friend and staying in to drink beer and watch wrestling.
    I could do that or go downtown where it's going to be a negative temperature with wind chill while MGK performs an outdoor concert.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Your bacon looks like ham, it doesn't even count.

    ReplyDelete
  117. YEAH BITCH CALL HIM STEVE O!

    ReplyDelete
  118. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 31, 2014 at 9:30 AM

    I liked MGK until that song came out.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Dave Coulier will be performing from Jan 8-13.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Chinese food AND shrimp? That is an odd combo.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I could do without Allen. Other than that, sounds solid.

    ReplyDelete
  122. The lyrics make so little sense "Cobains back got these crazy white boys yelling Cobains back" WTF?

    ReplyDelete
  123. MikeyMike, JuggernautDecember 31, 2014 at 9:32 AM

    You did say Nik Stauskas was going to suck in the NBA so kudos there

    ReplyDelete
  124. There are 2 things that my wife insists on for pretty much any special occasion. Brie cheese, and shrimp.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Sounds good.



    I'm working my way through season one of SHIELD...may finish that tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I do like the Wakka Flaka Flame part though "Suck my dragon balls bitch call me Goku"

    ReplyDelete
  127. What does that make Triple H? That guy who got replaced by Ringo?

    ReplyDelete
  128. Which illustrates one of the reasons I stay home.

    ReplyDelete
  129. LeBron can actually opt out after this year. Even if things don't work out this year, he does not have the balls to leave again

    ReplyDelete
  130. SupermanWinsLOL.

    ReplyDelete
  131. a ton of Chinese food has shrimp in it. The buffet here has some of the best fried shrimp I've had

    ReplyDelete
  132. LMK how it is. The lead female in the show is like how I viewed X-Pac in the 00s.

    ReplyDelete
  133. No. That makes him Ringo.

    He's even got the nose!

    ReplyDelete
  134. http://cheezburger.com/8405993728



    Holy shit.

    ReplyDelete
  135. And that Ebron would be overdrafted.

    ReplyDelete
  136. It's like a soft 'th' sound (the, these, there, etc). You're luck there were no L's.

    ReplyDelete
  137. And Noah Vonleh too.

    ReplyDelete
  138. took a tour of a cider mill in school once, I don't think anyone who took that tour would ever drink cider again.


    a "cider apple" is code for "too rotten and worm infested to sell whole"

    ReplyDelete
  139. "Take The Money and Run" is in my top ten movie list

    ReplyDelete
  140. So the mass murder/suicide thing in Edmonton looks like it may be an Asian family. On a civilian level, I thought only white people killed on that scale.

    ReplyDelete
  141. And it's not just Superman. It's Batman rigging all of the armories of Apokolips with hellfire bombs. In JLU, Batman dodging the Omega Effect. In Final Crisis, using the Omega Sanction to transport Batman into the past (so he was accelerate forward in time like a temporal rail gun and destroy the present when he got back, it's a goofy idea). In some random other comic when Darkseid tripped on stairs. In Final Crisis when he's on Mary Marvel's couch (he actually does the couch thing a lot).

    Bad writing has hurt the character a lot. I don't know if the rebuild from post-Flashpoint has taken yet or not.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Was the kid doing poorly in school?

    ReplyDelete
  143. Speaking about Darkseid, as much as Final Crisis is mess. Morrison did a damn good job on making Darkseid a threat again.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I wonder if he has the balls to talk to his son about the proper way to treat women?

    ReplyDelete
  145. I've frequently heard that Aussies don't actually drink Fosters. Confirm our deny, Mr. Crikey!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Pete Best? That's too much for Triple H.


    Pete Best was supposedly the most handsome Beatle and a better drummer as well.

  147. Dr Facts HallenbeckDecember 31, 2014 at 9:42 AM

    Name some of your favorite wrestling tournaments.

    King of the Ring 93 is up there with tears in my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  148. The dude that killed all those people at Virginia Tech was Asian. Also, I now know that there are Asians in Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Smackdown Tag Tourney from 2002 and New Japan G1 Climax from this year.

    ReplyDelete
  151. So is the correct term for the HBK/HHH/Hall/Nash/Waltman group Kliq or Clique? I've heard and read both over the years and on the Monday Night Wars doc they use both spellings & pronunciations.

    ReplyDelete
  152. This year's BOLA was phenomenal.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Morrison stuff are hit or miss, but his DC stuff tends to be hits.


    Final Crisis came way too soon after Infinite Crisis. I vaguely remember the problem was Final Crisis was planned, but somehow Infinite Crisis got created and thrown in before Final Crisis could be released. So Morrison had to redo Final Crisis.

    ReplyDelete
  154. But which wrestler is Stu Sutcliffe?

    ReplyDelete
  155. King of the Ring 95.



    Because of the absurdity.

    ReplyDelete
  156. I get the feeling Edge doesn't really like the WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Allen Klein maybe.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Kliq. WWE doesn't know their own history? Shocking.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Survivor Series 98.

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'm going to ask this, knowing I may not want to know, but: "Why?"

    ReplyDelete
  161. Remember the Vietnamese guy who took on all the Wisconsin deer hunters 10 years or so ago.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Jimmie Nicol, the guy who filled in for ringo when he had his tonsils out

    ReplyDelete
  163. Where do you get that feeling from? As far as I can tell he's a huge fanboy.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Eating shitty food and gonna try to convince the girlfriend to watch some wrestling with me.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Based off comments he makes here and there. Also his DVD.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I mean like the politics side of it.

    ReplyDelete
  167. And in further episodes of "Casual Racism", do the Canadian and Asian levels of politeness cancel out, or did the shooter point the gun at the relatives, tell them he/she was dreadfully sorry, then pull the trigger, bowing after each shot?

    ReplyDelete
  168. Final Crisis was supposed to be that seven part series and that's it, but DC made that countdown thing. Morrison had to fix everything around that to make FC.

    ReplyDelete
  169. *gives hugs* Happy now?

    ReplyDelete
  170. King of the Ring '93, 1994 and '95 Super J Cups

    ReplyDelete
  171. The more I think about it, the more I kind of feel like Triple H is more like Paul. He's good by himself, but Lennon is always put in front. Which brings up how he tried to put himself over Lennon after Lennon died, but everybody, including Yoko, destroyed him for that.


    The problem with this is admitting Triple H is on the level of Austin.

    ReplyDelete
  172. They way he talked about the higher ups in WWE makes me think he gives zero fucks about them and also he isn't afraid to speak his mind on WWE in interviews and on twitter.
