  1. They really thought they could get Edge? Eeesh that's silly.

    With New Japan debuting on AXS (is that what's it called) and Bellator on Spike this Friday, will anyone bother watching a canned (and not particularly interesting sounding) Impact?

    ReplyDelete
  2. It's absolutely hilarious to think TNA actually thought Edge would cut ties with relatively cushy role with WWE to act as an authority figure for TNA tapings every 2 months.

    Edge obviously knows TNA too well.

    ReplyDelete
  4. In all fairness, good on them for trying. If Edge says no, then you're in the same spot you were before.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'll DVR it and watch it at some point. Maybe once a year I'll decide to watch Impact and it's fun to watch for an episode or two just because it's something different. Then the novelty wears off and I remember that it's exponentially, near-objectively worse than WWE in every conceivable way, and I stop after maybe three episodes.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh of course. No harm, no foul. It's still hilarious though.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I shan't let them off lightly for this! They wanted to pay huge bucks presumably for an authority figure who can't wrestle. An Authority Figure Who Can't Wrestle. Bad TNA! Bad bad bad TNA!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Because the Hogan deal worked out so well for them, right?

    You know, TNA, you don't need an on air authority role.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This news is a positive just because we are all talking about TNA. This is how they need to get their name out there while they continue to promote their all new show on an all new channel. It's a win-win-win. It costs nothing to have Edge turn you down.

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's a shame Rick Rude is no longer with us. He would have made the ULTIMATE Authority figure.

    ReplyDelete
  13. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©January 13, 2015 at 9:39 AM

    Or it'll cause people to checkout the show to see why it was turned down.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Being rejected doesn’t matter, it’s how you
    handle rejection and bounce back that shows true character. #positivelydanimal

  15. The casual fan will ask themselves, "Why can't Edge run with these bad boys?" It works. It works on a lot of levels.

  31. Did they advertise Bryan and Lesnar for this week's Raw?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Matt_INDEED!! (Back from the DJanuary 13, 2015 at 9:47 AM

  33. And Always Sunny tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  34. From what I've heard, she's really old-school, focusing on strong angles, giving titles prestige and character development.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Semi-aside, but do things like that (or MNF, obviously) really have that much of an effect on the ratings? I haven't paid attention to the ratings since Raw and Nitro were actually close in them, so in other worse, shortly after I started watching. So I really have no idea.

    ReplyDelete
  36. How much do the guys on legends contracts get? (I assume that's what Edge has, but I don't really know)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Moved to tuesdays and they're burning off the entire season in 6 weeks.


    Damn it NBC i don't watch anything on Thursday nights, wish they had left it there.

  38. Wrestling without an authority figure? What's next, a college football championship where we let the best teams determine the champion head to head?

  42. At least 40 minutes will be his stories about how he can suck his own dick. Seriously, he brings that up in interviews

    ReplyDelete
  43. She is REALLY old school. She believes in keeping Big Show strong and she thinks Kane has one more title run in him.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah, aside from Archer I really don't have anything on Thursdays anymore. I could've lived with it staying there. Though I don't mind them burning it off with the back-to-backs; this season, I think, is mostly going to feel like a postscript with the way the last season ended.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Didn't Shawn and Bret score 2.8s and whatever when they were champion?

  46. [Live on WWE TV, Christian approaches Edge backstage]
    Christian: "Now, I've heard you've been offered the authority figure role in TNA - I mean, are you sure you want to do
    that? I mean, I know quite a lot about that place, and it's a bloody
    awful place, the nonsense that goes on there is unbelievable - I mean, I
    don't want to second guess you but are you really sure? I mean, there
    is rather a stench in the air and I wouldn't want to cause, you know, as
    much as I think of you, I wouldn't want you to get in any trouble above
    yourself or anything..."

    [On simulcast, Taz responds]

    Taz: "I
    don't want to sit here and, and as a person who's been on Impact for many
    years, take issue with anything anyone's said - Mr. Edge...it's his
    money, he can do whatever he wants, he can...I don't know what he's
    gonna do tonight, but...let me say this: to sit here and listen to them *rip* TNA? Come on. I mean, we've had to do some crazy

  57. I never found Amy Pohler's character likable. And the fat guy that everyone hates for no reason seems too much like a new version of Toby from the office.


    It's a decent enough show, but it still feels like a watered down version of The Office to me.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have to point out that ratings change over the years.


    A 2.0 rating in 1995 and the same in 2005 or 2015 are completley different in terms of the actual amount of people watching.

  60. What's Sharp doing in the Impact Zone, Taz?

    ReplyDelete

  65. Edge wasn't interested in TNA. In other news, Russel Wilson isn't interested in the CFL.

  70. If you count Jakks and Karate Fighters legit advertising.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Bruno in the Hall, and now Savage? If Trips can get Martha Hart to let Owen in next, I think this will essentially make HHH's career behind the curtain more successful than his career in front of it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I wasn't even gonna watch until my buddy who I normally watch with just showed up. Which was fine, but I told him I was more interested in the national title game. Still watched a good chunk of Raw and just made fun of it.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Martha is going to be a tough one. She's always hated wrestling and she's a philanthropist now so being associated with WWE might not be in her foundation's best interest.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yeah, because football is the biggest draw on TV (SNF is the highest rated show on TV and the CFP semifinals last week drew the highest cable ratings ever), so against a MNF or something even bigger like CFB semifinals or finals, that's probably drawing a huge chunk of 18-49 males like myself away from RAW.

    ReplyDelete
  80. You say tomato.

    ReplyDelete
  81. In fairness, ratings-wise, nothing is as highly rated as it was 20 years ago because there's exponentially more ways to consume entertainment.

    ReplyDelete
  82. How is it not legit advertising?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yup it's easy to mend fences with someone who never wronged you in any real way.


    I mean i'm sure the Warrior was probably dismissive of him back in 1996 and didn't shake his hand and thank him for putting him over but that's hardly the same as mending Vince & Bruno's relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  84. As mad as Punk is, he didn't spit on Vince, punch him or publicly accuse him of murder, steroid usage or any of the other things that Vince forgave others for.

    ReplyDelete
  85. "Be...different from WWE? But...but we already have James Storm doing Bray Wyatt, and we had that whole business last year where we were doing the CM Punk MITB angle from 2011, but vowed to do it better than WWE (yet almost did it worse).

  89. TV ratings are a fucking dumpster fire compared to 20 years ago.


    Part of that is due to other forms of entertainment but a lot of it is a doomed and outdated Nielsen ratings system.

  94. When your organization is called the Owen Hart Foundation, it's kind of hard to divorce yourself from the context associated with the name. It'd be like naming your organization the Joe Namath Foundation but not wanting anyone to mention that he played football.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Punk will come around eventually. There's too much money on the table for either party to turn it down.

    In 10 years or so they'll be running low on headliners anyway. Unless you want to see a Hall of Fame class headlined by Chris Masters.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Wow. Hope it all works out! Sure you'll find something more fulfilling.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I find the abuse of Jerry funnier than the abuse of Toby, because it's weirdly hilarious how every character (instead of just one, like Michael to Toby) not only hates Jerry, but they do for no reason and don't question it. The lack of justification really sells it.

    The Office wishes it was as strong post-S3 as Parks has been; it didn't fall off a cliff like that show did in its back half.

    ReplyDelete
  98. If he gets Nailz, then that pretty much tells me Hunter gives the best head in the business.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yeah, but last season would've been such a perfect series finale that I'm just looking at it like a postscript, and just enjoying that we have more to finish everyone's stories.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I hope to see some BoD representation in the Lanny Poffo YouShoot

  101. Wait. Why the fuck would Nailz be in the HoF to begin with?

  103. Hulk is in one of the sure to be biggest movies of the year,the Thing is in a FOX joint that they haven't even bothered to release a teaser for yet...or a promo poster,picture etc.


    Hulk wins this round.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Yeah, but Martha seems damned committed to separating the man Owen Hart from the wrestler Owen Hart.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Weren't those also considered shitty ratings back then?

    ReplyDelete
  106. He pulled that tree out of the ground that one time.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Well, yes, that too. If I had to take a barely-educated guess, I'd say today's 2.8 at least translates to a 4.0 or so 20 years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  108. He was a good worker by the end! And he saved his mother's life!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Honestly, from what I gathered, Hunter and Owen were really good friends backstage despite what was going on between Shawn and Bret. Look no further than his video testimony for Raw is Owen, the guy is breaking down just as bad as Jarrett was and seriously needed Chyna there for support.


    If anyone could, it's him.

    Does anyone has any valid argument as to why Lanny Poffo would go into the Hall of Fame? He says in the shoot that he wants Randy, Angelo, and himself inducted together. Randy is a given and I get the argument for Angelo, but how the fuck would the Genius rate induction?

  118. He wore a suit of armor to the ring for a Bunkhouse Stampede match one time. He popularized the Moonsault in North America. The Genius is one of the most well known characters of the early 90's. He has great hair. He comes from a wrestling family.

  123. "Matt_NOTDEED!!! asks, 'So I just heard you can suck your own dick. Sup wit dat?!'"

    ReplyDelete
  124. He doesn't. But it was Randy's stipulation for going in the Hall. It wasn't that Vince didn't want to induct him, it's that Randy wouldn't allow himself to be inducted unless his family went in with him, since he still felt Vince disrespected his father by not putting him in an MSG legends battle royal in the mid-80s because he didn't think anyone would know who Angelo Poffo was.

    ReplyDelete
  125. What argument for Angelo? Guy ran an outlaw indy promotion for like 7 years and spawned the Macho Man.


    Aside from that he was just a journeyman who no one would remember. Hell even Gordon Solie got pissed at his WCW induction.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogJanuary 13, 2015 at 10:06 AM

    Most well-known characters of the early 90s? Dude's biggest achievement was getting a major wrestling company to pay him for years without even appearing. I'll give him kudos for that.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I dunno. I read that HHH's tears were crocodile in nature and lots of wrestlers were pissed at him for it. Mostly because when Bret left, HHH and Shawn took continued shots at Owen, who just kept on being as professional as he could.

  128. I don't know. If Macho Man Randy Savage springs forth from your loins, you deserve some kind of recognition.

    Can Hogan make it through this induction speech without making it all about him?

    ReplyDelete
  141. The argument for The Genius is the argument for Koko B. Ware. It's basically a Hall of Recognition.


    Except you could kind of make the case for Koko from his territory days and his (arguable) innovation in bringing a certain style to wider audiences. But even then...


    Basically, it's the James Dudley Clause (which many basically consider the Koko B. Ware Clause now): if James Dudley -- Vince's limo driver -- can get in, there's no real bar for who can't.

  150. Plus RAW was against Nitro then, meaning like 6+ million people were watching wrestling Monday nights. Now it's a third of that.

  151. There's something almost endearing about the abuse of Jerry. I think it's because they've shown us how fucking spectacular his home life is: awesome house, gorgeous wife, etc. Plus, eventually they feel bad about it at some point or get their comeuppance for it (like when Tom, Donna and Ann...I think that's who, at least, realized they did get an invite to Jerry's awesome Christmas party, they just never saw it because it was an e-mail from Jerry).

    Meanwhile, Toby has a sad, miserable life and Michael never really gets any comeuppance for torturing him. We're just asked to continually laugh along at his abuse of him.

  152. He'll make it all of 12 seconds

    LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT THE MACHO MAN DUDE!...HE KNEW HOW TO LIFT THE SPIRIT OF THE CROWD ALL THE WAY TO THE HEAVENS, BROTHER...JUST LIKE HOW I LIFTED ANDRE THE GIANT OVER MY HEAD IN FRONT OF 100,000 HULKAMANIACS AT THE SILVERDOME, DUDE!

  153. Well, it sounds as significant as anything Koko did, so alright.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Yup. It was really good for a Hall of Fame. Normally, every Hall has a handful of guys you could argue against, but WCW's was pretty rock solid.

  157. Hulk. Why would a disembodied hand give him trouble?

  158. Saw the new Age of Ultron trailer, and I find myself wondering if they're going to just have the Avengers fight each other in every movie.

  160. These ads on the site ae a joke. The ads on the site for me today are the HHH work out program on top. I will NEVER use HHH's work out program. The one on the bottom says I should donate my car to breast Cancer. I will NEVER donate my car to breast cancer.

  161. Just a thought: Remember how Rey Mysterio was all about winning belts as a tribute to Eddie after he inducted Eddie in the Hall of Fame? Another good way for WWE to set up Hulk Hogan's final match(es) would be for him to do it as a tribute to Randy Savage and Ultimate Warrior. How moving would that be?

    ReplyDelete
  162. I know people have a problem with it but who else could it be? I've heard Flair (he'll make it about himself), DDP (he'll talk about the same boring story when Randy let him go over), Bret (would probably do a good job but they aren't tied together professionally that well), Steamboat (ugh, Mr. Charisma himself who, despite being in an all-time classic, criticizes the match as being too formulaic) and Lanny (who will probably receive the induction and do a GREAT speech).



    It makes sense that Hulk inducts Savage. I'm not a Hulk mark but Hogan does talk glowingly about Savage as a wrestler.

    "Moving" might be problematic at his age

  166. I know, right? He'll be doing a final run for all his fellow wrestlers who went to the Big Hulkster in the Sky.

  167. I donated a car to NPR once. I think I made the right call.

    ReplyDelete
  168. What will happen to this gimmick when the Hulkster dies? My god, think of the children!

    ReplyDelete
  169. I'd be OK with that

    ReplyDelete
  170. Well, in the first one it made sense since Thor was basically just going after Loki on his own while Iron Man and Cap were bringing him in. And Hulk losing control on the Helicarrier.


    In this, apparently Scarlet Witch shows each of them some vision that causes them to go at it. Including Hulk going off.

  171. It didn't really seem any different from the first trailer, which I'm totally ok with because I don't want anything more to be spoiled.

  172. The advertisers they had at the name were completely legit advertisers in every aspect and in line with the demographics they were attempting to appeal to.

  173. I'm skeptical. Other than Winter Soldier, Marvel sequels aren't really that great.

  174. He's IMMORTAL, brother.

    Also, he's not going to need to do the Flying Elbow Drop as a tribute.

  179. Well, there will be a Hogan match this year so it's already happening. I'm just trying to suggest some additional context.

    ReplyDelete
  180. I just meant it was crummy in the sense that they never really made anything of it or did anything with it. I think it was dropped after 2 years.

    ReplyDelete
  181. What's this about NJPW and AXS?

    ReplyDelete
  182. Actually, I think Hulk should do that. Just so I can see a hip explosion live on TV.

    Even if all of the above have small reasons why they wouldn't be a perfect fit, that still puts them ahead of Hogan for me. I would go with Steamboat (assuming Lanny is being inducted).
