  1. I'll take Bama over Mizzou, FSU over Georgia Tech and Wisconsin over Ohio State

  2. I give the Punk fighting thing a zero per cent chance of actually occurring.


    Kevin Owens looks good.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I'd like to see Punk give it a shot, but I don't know how successful he'd be. Different from Brock (who was also younger). Just don't see him making that transition. He's 36 now, so he wouldn't have his first fight until he was at least 37.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Got Dang, I'm glad that I don't live anywhere near where crocodiles live.

    ReplyDelete
  5. And Brock had a lifetime of training in a discipline that has a proven success rate in MMA. Brock had a base in wrestling that covered his late start. Punk doesn't have near that base in anything nor is he near the physically gifted athlete Brock is.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Very disappointed that the Steen video wasn't a remake of this. Would be PERFECT! (note: took me forever to finally find a video of it. )

  7. Or octopi, or sharks, or spiders, or scorpions.


    Warm climates, and the ocean, and their attendant nightmare animals can just go right ahead and blow me.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'd pay for Punk to climb up top of the octagon and deliver a flying elbow.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'd pay twice whatever you're paying to ensure Punk never does his awful elbow drop again.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wisconsin over Ohio State? You monster!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Punk walks away from a job because of the physical toll it was taking and then signs up for another job that exacts an ungodly amount of physical toll. Makes all the sense. So much sense that there isn't much left for the rest of us.

    ReplyDelete
  12. ESPN is on here talking up GT like they aren't glorified jobbers. WWE should take notes. This is how you build up an inept challenger.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think the physical toll he was complaining about was more that he was working every day/being made to work injured. This UFC thing will be one fight and out

    ReplyDelete
  14. Makes more sense then.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My guaranteed lock of the week is Oregon over Arizona in the Pac-12 Championship game.

    ReplyDelete
  16. depends on the point spread.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yep, even the reduced schedule must be a ridiculous grind.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You really need to change your avatar to a giant novelty lock if you want to be taken seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ducks were a 13.5 favorite

    ReplyDelete
  20. You're nuts. Zona is dropping those Rubber Duckeys.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ducks by 3!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's be funny if all the UFC veterans start complaining about part time Punk taking their spots.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Punk/UFC is a complete joke. This is not Brock, Punk is just keeping his name in the news (as is Dana). No chance you see this, ever.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It would cringe-worthy watching him get beat down so badly

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yep, I seriously doubt he could beat a pro. Maybe some "ham & egger", and it would make great publicity, but... he can't make a career out of it I don't think.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Kevin does look good. Hate the name, but whatever, not that big of a deal.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If this was wwe then gt would win when the refs are distracted on a pi call which would put gt in the hunt for the title

    ReplyDelete
  28. Teddy Hart beat Punk up. Says it all.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Dana wouldn't put him in there if he didn't think he could go. I'm sure they'll talk and nothing will come of it, but he's not going to fight if he's going to get smashed. At least not in UFC. If he thought for a much smaller promotion just to see if he could do it like Batista did, then that'd be cool.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Is there a "Skinny-fat" weight division?

    ReplyDelete
  31. "Get What You Give" is such a great song, and perfectly 90s.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Buckeyes all day! Gordon might run for 300, but the Bucks can get the job done.

    ReplyDelete
  33. How much does this guy weigh? Is he like 220 range? Hey, if he bulks up a little he could always fight Lesnar.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It's just talk for the sake of drumming up internet chatter.

    ReplyDelete
  35. So can Punk legit fight or is he going to get his ass kicked at every turn?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I guess this is the point where bored Punk is rumored to do everything. Using his celebrity to be a part-timer and tuk der jerrbs

    ReplyDelete
  37. If ESPN were like WWE then Alabama would be their John Cena. Oh wait...

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is not getting nearly enough love!! So I will upvote it myself. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Phil Brooks vs. Mark Calloway in the octagon. Book it!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I wonder how bad it is. Obviously, I've never done it myself. And I'm sure that it's strenuous physical activity, but I wonder if it's any tougher than what other athletes go through. Is a wrestling match more physically taxing than a basketball game? And the matches hardly even go much longer than a half hour anymore.


    And I'm sure the travel must get old, but a lot of people do that. And flying around in a plane is a lot easier than working in a factory or a lot of other physical jobs people have to do for 8 hours everyday

    ReplyDelete
  41. Duncan had a triple-double last night? That's fucking awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I hope Ohio State never wins another game

    ReplyDelete
  43. He's on my fantasy team, so it's REALLY awesome

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah, but in cold climates you can die just from being outside.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yep. Punk went all locker room leader because Teddy Hart started doing dangerous leaps off a cage without telling the other wrestlers in ROH. Hart, "allegedly"

    ,beat Punk like a jobber.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think because pro athletes actually have team buses and planes, plus team hotels, they can basically just sleep through it. Plus of course, 3 month off seasons. I think WWE wrestlers need to book all of those things themselves, and often drive rental cars. Plus, yep, no offseason.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Basketball players don't have to take bumps.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would think Punk would make enough to hire someone to make travel arrangements for him if he didn't want to do it himself

    ReplyDelete
  49. Well, if you wanna downplay the insane travel schedule of Rasslers, I guess we can agree to disagree. I personally think it must be hell, even if they would just wrestle 30 second squashes every night.

    ReplyDelete
  50. If none of us think that Punk stands a chance in legit fighting, then why would any pro wrestling organization ever want him as one of their top stars? You could argue that they can overcome such a bias with better booking, but better booking gets you only so far. For example, no one would ever buy Hornswaggle as a main eventer even if they had him squash everyone Goldberg-style.


    Certainly guys like Cena, HHH, etc. would also lose in MMA, but at least I don't look at them and immediately think it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. One thing I really like about Steen (and I've only seen him wrestle a couple of times) is that he looks like a professional wrestler. He doesn't look like he could be a model or a lifeguard or whatever...he looks like a professional wrestler.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I didn't even watch it and upvoted it b/c I'm sure it's awesome. You're welcome.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Does he pass the Airport test?

    ReplyDelete
  54. .... GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I used to have to travel a lot - for over a year I didn't even keep in apartment, just went from hotel to hotel - usually not more than three days in any one town, sometimes only one.


    It wasn't fun, but it wasn't torture either

    ReplyDelete
  56. That's because Cena and HHH don't use MMA style holds in their matches or MMA strikes. Punk does. Hence we judge him by how well he does those. He does them fine wrestling wise, but his strikes are weak as Hell for MMA. And he doesn't have a Lesnar style build where we think if he got hold of an opponent, it's over in MMA.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love cm punk to death but I really wish he wouldnt join ufc. I really dont have faith in him at his age to start training for that

    ReplyDelete
  58. Punk in a UFC fight? Surely there are laws against televised murder?

    ReplyDelete
  59. "If none of us think that Punk stands a chance in legit fighting, then why would any pro wrestling organization ever want him as one of their top stars?"



    I think it's a very different skill set

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm lucky, I only have to worry about the occasional bear snorting around in my backyard.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Punk travels on a swell looking bus. It's basically a house on wheels. He still has to ride from town to town but it's not like he isn't enjoying some luxuries in the process.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'd imagine you weren't travelling with the same amount of aches and pains, and also got to go home more often

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wow you're comparing hornswaggle and punk lol. I may be wrong but I dont think that matters as much today since EVERYONE knows its fake anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't think most people think the majority of wrestlers have a shot in UFC.

    ReplyDelete
  65. you're right about the aches and pains, wrong about going home more often. For a while there was no home to be at. I lived in hotels.

    ReplyDelete
  66. What is it about wrestling that makes one so insecure? I'm settled into life as your typical suburban dad and I have no desire to get punched in the face. Of course, I've never felt the need to go overboard proving my manhood either. Does wrestling make one question his manhood more than any other profession? It's starting to seem like it.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 6, 2014 at 9:26 AM

    I think if you GO INTO wrestling, you're already a little insecure about your manhood.

    ReplyDelete
  68. If onlookers like Petey Williams are to be believed, it wasn't the one-sided mauling that Ian Austin's portraying it as, but Hart did apparently get the better of Punk.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hmm I don't know, Dana may enjoy having his fighters assert their dominance over pro wrestlers

    ReplyDelete
  70. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessDecember 6, 2014 at 9:27 AM

    He'd be a great color guy.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Was just thinking that. He'd get CREAMED.

    Unless it's just as fixed as boxing.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think this is about the long and short of it.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Just about all wrestlers work out, and in my experience most body builders tend to be pretty insecure (and I say that as a "lifter" myself).

    ReplyDelete
  74. Maybe it's an athlete's mindset. They want to test themselves and look for new challenges. Sometimes it's not a money thing. Look at all those athletes who hang along too long even though they've made millions.

    You can't compare it to a typical nine to five existence.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think he's been training for years, just never had an official fight

    ReplyDelete
  76. Nah, Punk and Dana have been friendly for ages.

    ReplyDelete
  77. You don't? I do.

    Pro wrestlers have show muscles. MMA fighters have performance muscles.

    That's not to say that pro wrestlers aren't tough or couldn't kick my ass in a brawl, but in an MMA bout against a trained fighter? Not a chance in hell.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Someone will reply to this with "he's fat!" any second now...

    ReplyDelete
  79. He's been sparring and rolling for years, not training. That's an entirely different thing.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Everyone is assuming Punk couldn't compete with the lower end MMA fighters. is that an assumption because he's a pro wrestler or is it known for a fact that he hasn't trained extensively in real fighting?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yeah, if he went to the UFC, he'd have to compete at either HW or LHW (maybe, maybe, maybe WW). I cannot think of a single fighter worth mentioning he could beat in either weight class.

    ReplyDelete
  82. May be man. I like to push myself also but there are ways to do it without getting punched in the face. Train for a triathlon or take up rock climbing. A whole lot better than having another man break my bones.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Unless you wear a parka.


    Good luck with your crocodile jacket!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Punk would be 10 minutes into the cardio training for his first fight:

    Punk: "... and I looked over at my beautiful wife, smiling, and asked myself 'why am I doing this? Busting my ass for a fight I don't even want; for a fight that fans won't appreciate; for a fight Dana was gonna screw me over moneywise. Because if he offered me a million you know I'm worth two...'"

    ---

    Dave Meltzer: "Well, I'm not sure that's true..."

    Bryan Alvarez: "Well... it's what Punk said."

    Meltzer: "Ok, but here's the the thing... that million, you know, I mean, it's not as if... and I'm sure maybe he thinks... but c'mon, really... Dana... I mean I'm sure... probably. I dunno. You know what I mean? I guess it is what it is. Go on..."

    Alvarez: "So that's it everybody. Let's play a song..."

    ReplyDelete
  85. He'll get demolished. I think he just trains BJJ and boxing for fun.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I hear ya.

    I think a lot of people are jumping to conclusions that Punk may fight in UFC. They could be just sending feelers to see if Punk wants to work for the company. Like a host for one of their shows like Ultimate Fighter or something.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Can't speak for anyone else, but it's the latter for me. He's been rolling and sparring for a few years, but training for an actual fight is an entirely different and more intensive thing, with weight cuts, actual weeks-long camps, etc. Dude's been doing podcasts and YouTube videos, not getting ready for a fight and I don't see him having much success debuting at an age where many fighters start getting shuffled out.

    I bet Dana WOULD give him a fight, but this is just Dana trying to make noise.

    ReplyDelete
  88. doing promo stuff would work

    ReplyDelete
  89. I enjoyed this.

    ReplyDelete
  90. It's almost certainly just saber-rattling, but I bet Dana would give him a fight for the publicity.

    ReplyDelete
  91. His colleague Chael would be a great role model/comparison. Run your big mouth and talk a big game, then get beaten. :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. He's fat, and he looks like a common neckbeard slob.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Training and actually doing it in front of an audience with an opponent who wants to rip your face off are two different things. If Punk wants to make the transition to MMA, he should fight on smaller shows to see if he can hang with UFC fighters. Even Brock fought in Japan first, although he had a top-end amateur wrestling base to begin with, which Punk does not.

    At the same time, I think UFC would court Punk to work for the company and not fight as they don't really do circus fights, other than that one where that boxer fought Randy Couture. That was more to send a message, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Lower level UFC fighters are REALLY good now. It isn't 1997 anymore where the lower level guys were random dudes off the street who had a black belt from a taekwondo mcdojo. Most of the random white dudes with shaved heads who all look alike have been doing amateur wrestling since high school, BJJ for 8 years under great trainers, etc.


    Size/conditioning is another factor. What weight class would he compete at? His billed weight is 218, his real weight is probably 190, if that. He'd probably have to compete at 170 if he wanted to actually fight. HHH's "skinny fat" insult is true, Punk has never been in great shape, after a lifetime of pro wrestling, he'd easily be the guy in the worst physical shape on the UFC roster, and yes, that includes Roy Nelson.



    This isn't a Brock situation or even a Bobby Lashley situation. Punk has some actual fight training but he dabbled. Brock was truly elite, the best of the best. Lashley won some lower level competitions and wasn't on the top level of the game but he proved himself in real athletic competition and he struggled. Punk has never done anything on that level. He's never won any BJJ competitions, he's claimed to be a "white belt for life" but based on time in training he would be no better than a purple belt by now, BJ Penn he is not.



    If Punk wanted to do MMA he'd be best served to do it like Batista and test the waters with a guy pre-selected to be easy pickings (and Batista was still almost knocked out by the hand-picked tomato can--him getting out at 1-0 and going back to movies was the best decision he ever made). Stepping into the UFC is a disaster waiting to happen.

    ReplyDelete
  95. you haven't earned the right!

    ReplyDelete
  96. haha...right on time.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Who gets the post-fight ice packs?

    ReplyDelete
  98. I did my contribution a bit earlier, with a video link. :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Dana White: Hey Punk, we have a deal for you in the UFC. 2 fight deal and will start you off at Middleweight 185 lbs. We are going to have you fight CB Dolloway at a UFC show in January. All we need is your signature.


    CM Punk: Will he try and hurt me like the Ryback did? Can you tell him to work safer with me?


    Dana White: Well that's not exactly how it works, but if you do get injured our UFC medical staff is top notch. We have everything from cut men, to guys with ice packs for the bruises.


    CM Punk: Ice packs you say? SOLD!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I dunno. He's a bit too babyfaced for the old-school wrestler look you seem to be referring to. As LeeLeePhoenix puts it, he still looks like a "common neckbeard slob".

    ReplyDelete
  101. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonDecember 6, 2014 at 9:52 AM

    Not saying that Punk would win a UFC match, but are we forgetting that he does have some formal training:

  102. ThebrazilianpsychoDecember 6, 2014 at 9:52 AM

    Punk would definitely take a beatdown.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonDecember 6, 2014 at 9:53 AM

    He's trained, but where I think he'd struggle is with his stand-up game.

    ReplyDelete
  104. ThebrazilianpsychoDecember 6, 2014 at 9:54 AM

    For every Brock or Sakuraba there's 10 failed wrestlers that tried MMA.

    ReplyDelete
  105. What belt does he have in BJJ?

    For a one-off match he'll be OK. I wouldn't consider a career though.

    ReplyDelete
  108. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 6, 2014 at 9:57 AM

    Yeah, he can give it the old Batista try.

    ReplyDelete
  109. So he's a white belt? I Google'd it and it said he just got his white belt last year and said he is a "white belt for life" this year as he's refusing belt promotions because apparently he's a rebel even for fun.


    I still think he doesn't last 1 round in a UFC fight.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonDecember 6, 2014 at 9:59 AM

    So that doesn't mean he doesn't have the skillset but he's refusing titles.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I can't see Phil having much success in UFC. Sorry guys figured I would use real names like the emailers lately.

    ReplyDelete
  112. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©December 6, 2014 at 10:02 AM

    CM Punk a UFC fighter, yeah, I'd watched just to see if he can go, but I do t think he needs to make a second career off of it.

    ReplyDelete
  113. With this talk about MMA, I might watch the Sakuraba/Gracies feud again.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Yeah and if he fought at 170, those guys are cardio MACHINES and most of that division are top-level wrestlers, too.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonDecember 6, 2014 at 10:03 AM

    Yep. Baseball, hockey, UFC, Walking Dead...

    ReplyDelete
  116. And Batista nearly got knocked out. He fought a schlub, too.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I love typing Meltzer word salad.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Holy shit, Dolloway would wreck him so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  119. He almost got KO'd by a freakin' tomato can.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Mcmahon's first impression will be "who is this slob!" Mcmahon always has to be pushed into something he's not comfortable with and I'm not sure a Ross or Dillion exists there anymore to assist.

    ReplyDelete
  121. If they were smart they would offer him a job as a commentator or have him do interviews with the talent.

    ReplyDelete
  122. That's another stealth advantage that Brock and Lashley had. HW has been the worst MMA division without question except for a brief period surrounding 2004 (Fedor/CroCop/Nog era) and the 1 division in MMA that always seemed to resist consolidation. The top 5 guys almost never were all in the same org. at the same time.


    Brock never stepped into the cage against anyone stronger than him OR faster than him. He probably outweighed Couture by 50 lbs, if not more on the day he won the title and could still run circles around him. That's just not fair.


    By contrast, Punk would never have a physical advantage over anyone he fought. Ever. I doubt he would even be physically capable of cutting significant weight, that's kind of something you have to grow up doing.

    ReplyDelete
  123. He's given AJ quite a few "white belts".

    ReplyDelete
  124. Maybe if Punk went submission-only he'd be less embarrassed

    ReplyDelete
  125. With all the physical problems Punk was complaining about in his podcast, I doubt he'd survive a fight.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Yep, that's pretty much the main reason why Yuji Nagata never got another strong push in New Japan after 2003.

    ReplyDelete
  127. It would be fun to see him get his face beaten in just to see who he blames it on.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I thought Punk hates part timers!

    ReplyDelete
  129. Wouldn't Punk have to go by his real name in a UFC fight seeing as how no one in the UFC has a stage name?

    ReplyDelete
  130. You're right. He'd literally be doing the exact same thing that he hated only this time in the UFC.

    ReplyDelete
  131. So I'm listening to Austin's latest podcast and he's just shooting the shit with his buddy. They come to a lull in the conversation where they can't figure out what to talk about. Austin's friend suggests politics but Steve isn't too into it since it's a divisive topic and he doesn't want his podcast to be about that.

    Then Austin says abruptly, "We can talk about pussy instead."

    And that my friends is why wrestling fans love Steve Austin.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Everyone in UFC is a part-timer these days. Two titles haven't been defended since 2013 with all the injuries as well.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Especially if he's on a PPV or televised card because he's taking a spot from a real full-time fighter.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Good lord though. UFC runs a show every single week. They literally have 500 people on the roster.

    ReplyDelete
  135. And you know that would happen because Dana isn't signing him to fight on Fight Pass in a prelim.

    ReplyDelete
  136. WWE runs like 5 shows a week.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Why would CM Punk be interested in being publicly humiliated? Simple. Because he doesn't care about money, duh.

    ReplyDelete
  138. UFC tends not run with the same matches and fighters every night.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Only one them is good, NXT.

    ReplyDelete
  140. For the Actor Slammy, I went with Batista.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Why not go 100% with the Punk/UFC crazy talk and have AJ quit WWE then bulk for a year and then challenge Rousey next year for the UFC belt?

    ReplyDelete
  142. Version I heard was Sabu had to pull Hart off of Punk. If that's contrary to what actually happened, I'll concede the point.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Unfortunately for Punk, there's no backstage politicking going on in the UFC so he would have no one to blame but himself for that predicament. Plus his knees are shot so there's no way he would be able to withstand a heel hook.

    James Toney couldn't even last five minutes in the Octagon and he was a better striker and not nearly as banged up as Punk.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Rousey/AJ hmmm, I would like them to lic....


    *PLEASE STAND BY*

    ReplyDelete
  145. Didn't see that on the page and I'm too lazy to go through the app. I'd go HHH and Bryan though.

    ReplyDelete
  146. If Cena and Rollins main event TLCS, will it be the first tables match main event in PPV history?

    ReplyDelete
  147. Yeah but so many of those guys get cut after a fight or two. Fighters have less of a shelf-life than WWE wrestlers and big money spots are limited despite the size of the roster. So for Punk to swoop in and take one...yikes, that's going to ruffle some feathers.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Well hey, maybe that's what he wants. If he's the best in wrestling, he feels he's not gonna get the respect he feels he deserves. In UFC,if he's the best, he'll be at the top. Simple. I'm sure he'd like that.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Me too, no match this year had the drama of Bryan/HHH. It was the perfect formula, you have the bully (HHH) taking a injured but valiant face(Bryan). Those near falls were fantastic, it showed how much Bryan would go to survive. This was something that Ziggler did in SurSer, he just refused to die.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I think sherdog would throw a fit, but they'd be drowned out. And any fighter would love to be on the same card as one getting more mainstream attention like a Punk one would.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Punk would still get schooled. He'd be against guys who had been doing BJJ and amateur wrestling for most of their lives.

  152. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY LINKS TO SOME FAN FICTION ALONG THESE LINES

  153. Man if they went into north/south position I think the MMA/Wrestling world would faint.

  154. Agreed. And with Ziggler, he is so awesome wrestling as a babyface. He kinda has the same problem as HBK did in 95-96 where he his character was better suited as a heel but his style is so much better babyface.

  156. Were most ECW main events basically table matches?

    ReplyDelete
  157. Just replace the Zig zag for the perfect-plex, trust me Dolph. It's a way better finisher.

  158. Punk almost had a heart attack when he saw AJ kissing Brie.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I believe it would be. Kinda puzzling that TNA never let Bully Ray have at least one table match during his main event run last year.

    ReplyDelete
  160. The TLC match is almost always the main event.

  161. I love Dana to bits, but he is a mini-Vince. He loves to write people out of history for the slightest thing.

  162. I think it's probably the type of people who are attracted to wrestling: Love performing, but a bit insecure. I think Raven used to talk about this a lot.

  163. *The CENA match is almost always the main event


    Fixed that for you.

  164. I heard that too, but it didn't sound like Punk got beat up "like a jobber" exactly, although from the sounds of it he was losing the fight. What I heard was that Punk slapped Hart and then tripped or something, Hart started punching him and pulling his hair, and then Sabu pulled him off of Punk. I think we both agree that if there was a winner, it was Hart.

  165. You realize that if they did, people would just criticize them of "ripping off WWE", right?


    TNA gets a lot of deserved, fair criticism (they've done a LOT of stupid crap), but they're also always put in "can't win situations", where people will criticize them no matter what they do.

  166. Is it telling of the current product that the only reason I'm considering re-signing up for the network is for Steen's debut in NXT? NOT the $50 PPV I can get for only $9.99 a month, but their "training show".

    ReplyDelete
  167. Well TLC(s) looks like a solid show, but to each their own, I guess!

    I have been a wrestling fan for as long as I can remember. Every one of us had wrestled with our friends or brothers once in a while. We knew how to pull off moves without hurting the other guy.


    I once got into a real fight. I kneed the guy in the stomach, but I pulled my punch so to speak, just out of force of habit. The other guy looked at me and said "What was that?". Then we got separated and didn't get another chance.


    I can't help but think that's going to happen to CM Punk in the cage.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Yeah I'm aware of that but it's also pretty stupid to base a guy's gimmick around putting people through tables and yet that guy never got one PPV main event during the biggest push of his career that would perfectly capitalize on the gimmick.

    It would be like Jerry Lawler in his prime going an entire year without having at least one cage match or Dusty Rhodes going an entire year without having at least one bullrope match.

    Certain matches are meant to fit certain people's gimmicks and the table match should have been that speciality match for Bully Ray.

  172. TLC looks really fucking good. From a work rate stand point, Ziggler-Harper, Rollins-Cena, and Ambrose-Bray can all be ****.

  176. I chased a guy down a hall and threw a bunch of kicks a this thighs when I was in college. Fucking pussy that guy was.

  177. My wrestling experience was putting a poor lad in the Texas Cloverleaf and bruising his back during a class. Teacher yelled at me. Fuck her.

    My fighting experience is scratching and throwing punches like Lita.

    Does anyone else recognize the irony that the New Day stable debuted on the November 28th edition of SmackDown? Aka 'Black Friday'? Comic lols.

  181. On the first TLC Cena was in a tables match and the TCL match went on last.

    Two months ago at hell in the cell Cena's match did not go on last either.

    I see what you did there! Now we just need a wrestler named Jimmy Doolittle who creates a Doolittle Raiders stable. After that, the sky's the limit.
