    Hope that they move Summerslam to somewhere in between NYC and Cleveland. Say, Baltimore.

  2. For the morning crowd: I start a new data entry job on Tuesday. NOT a call center. :-)

    Quit with the TNA bullshit Bully Ray. Or at least go back for one quick stint as the Dudleys.

    That was a fast turnaround.

  5. Baltimore?! Have you seen The Wire?!

    I'm boys with Marlo. I'm good.

    ReplyDelete
  7. There were rumours that backstage people in the WWE thought Bully was an arsehole but they would've taken Devon back because everyone liked him.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yay! Nice work Hoss!

    ReplyDelete
  9. God, the relief you'll feel from not being on the phone all day. I was SO happy to start the job after my call centre job.

    ReplyDelete
  10. NXT was great. Well worth your time.

    ReplyDelete
  11. There were also rumours that Bully never took a shower at the arena because guys kept on making fun of his bitch tits.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why are Cesaro and Kidd bothering? It's not like any of the higher ups are even paying attention their tag team, never mind any extra work training.

    ReplyDelete
  13. MikeyMike, JuggernautJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:10 AM

    Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What should they do then? Just languish and be lazy and job to bunnies and Fandango?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Because they may notice that they aren't moping and bitching and are running with what they are given. May pay off and beats being lazy and a complainer.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh good, more Bully Ray.

    ReplyDelete
  17. They love pro wrestling, I guess. MARKS!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The arena chosen for SS being demolished kinda feels like a delicious metaphor for where this company is.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haven't you heard?! He's lost a ton of weight! And he's amazing on promos! He's an ECW original!!!

  20. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:13 AM

    I'm good with it. Man did a good job reinventing himself and I enjoy his work now.

    ReplyDelete
  21. *Points to the calves*

    ReplyDelete
  22. I picture the arena watching Raw and choosing to demolish itself before Summerslam. Like Russell Crowe's tugboat.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So Hogan was actually Lanny's idea? That's...interesting. Maybe it's not the ratings ploy Scott thinks it is.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think my response would be something like, "well then. Why don't you come suck on my bitch tits?"

    ReplyDelete
  25. They also wanted the Silverdome for Wrestlemania 23.

    Demolition would be more dignified than what happened to that place.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hogan is a great idea. The Hulkster has always been a humble guy who puts other over, and never tries to hog the spotlight for himself.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would have chosen George Steele.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would have chosen The Mountie!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lanny could also just be saying that per WWE's wishes and/or to impress them.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Like destroying a building will stop cena. RISE ABOVE DEMOLITION

    ReplyDelete
  31. What if it was a guy like HHH and Taker leading the teasing and they could torpedo the anemic push Bully Ray was getting?

    ReplyDelete
  32. 1. This reminds me of what I heard on KFAN out of Minneapolis, the new Viking's stadium manager was recently hired from the WWE. He use to be in charge of event bookings and venues. Maybe this change will force WWE to come up with a creative, out of the box solution. But I'm not holding my breath.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bill Eadie gets the last laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:18 AM

    The manner in which he put TNA firmly on the wrestling map is the stuff of legend.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love how he would go on the media circuit and never once mention he was working for TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm sure he once plugged a PPV main event by saying that Jeff Hardy would be facing "some guy"

    ReplyDelete
  37. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:22 AM

    I'm happy Cesaro & Kidd (which does have a ring to it, I must admit) are doing what they can, they make a good team actually. Still, fuck you Vince for completely ruining Cesaro's breakthrough year, all because YOU don't get it, you senile piece of shit.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hope it all works out for you man.

    ReplyDelete
  39. He also once did an interview and said he was going to the WWE Hall Of Fame ceremony to induct "some announcer" (Mean Gene).

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks man. I appreciate it. It's hard to find an outlook to post the story to without it getting deleted. I posted it to Reddit so hopefully they keep it up.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Good luck buddy. It is going to be tough sledding, but keep taking hacks.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Columbus is a couple hours from me, I just might go to that show!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Well, Some Guy did discover Bonerland in 1942, so I think he would have been able to put up a good fight against Jeff.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The guy picked Big Show up body-slam style, walked him over to the ropes and dumped him out. You can't make a fucking star out of an all-time Wrestlemania moment?!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm not saying their attitude is not to be admired, but how many double team moves can you fit in a three minute match?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks. I'm trying man lol

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just call the police (non emergency of course) and ask them. Ripping someone off like that is bad enough, but worse when the mail is involved.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:26 AM

    Not if Vince can't imagine him as THE MARINE. Vince is the epitome of modern day carny folk. He never shook the trailer off his ass at all.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Kidd and Caesaro should have a run in nxt. Over two tv tapings, have them beat the luchadores for the tag team titles, and then lose them to balor and itami. And have awesome matches in the interim!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I want you to beat that guy just because I hate his punchable, Milhouse-esque face.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Not sure I could stop myself. Except for Taker. He's one of the few people I've seen in person whom I genuinely found to be intimidating.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:28 AM

    Balor/Kidd on last nights show was a pretty kick-ass match

    ReplyDelete
  53. If it is not here or I don't have a tracking number by tomorrow at noon, I am notifying his local police department. I'll send them the copy and pasted post I made on Reddit as well as I will call them.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Didn't you hear? No one understands the common man like Vince does. He said so in that Steve Austin podcast!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:29 AM

    Hopefully you've scared him a bit and he relents. Good move posting this in detail everywhere you can...keep going.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Dude! That sucks! Do you have an Amazon wish list? Maybe a few of us could buy you gift cards and they could help towards a new PS4?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:30 AM

    Fucking Greenwich snobs!!

  58. Also check out this link:

    ReplyDelete
  59. Aye, he sounds like a total dick and obviously a fraud. This “roommate”
    if he was a real person would clearly understand your concern about being
    ripped off and being suspicious and wouldn’t play that awful “Poor me stuck in
    the middle” card. Bah. Hope it all works out. You’re lucky you do have so much
    personal information on him (didn’t he have a Facebook link in his profile as
    well?) so hopefully something can be done.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Might e-mail it to the local news around his town as well. They might have some "investigative journalist" that could look into it. I know here they have some guys on the news that do this kind of stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  61. That's actually some really good advice by Mike. Mail fraud is serious business. You should also let your Post Master know and see if he/she can do anything.

    ReplyDelete
  62. The worst part is : they book it, it work and somehow they decide to forget all about it, smh.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I don't wanna be a dick, and I hope it works out. But, learn the lesson here sir.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yeah he has a Facebook link, but I clicked it and nothing pops up. It is http://www.facebook.com/jamio88

    ReplyDelete
  65. Last night I saw a guy who was 6'11" tall. I told him that if he was a wrestler he could be 7'9" easy. He didn't understand and I think he thought I was drunk

    ReplyDelete
  66. Theberzerker Von HUSSingtonJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:32 AM

    Yup. Anything and everything man, expose him however you can.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hmm. I get a full profile popping up, but the privacy settings are set up so you can't comment on anything. Shame that.

    ReplyDelete
  68. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:33 AM

    As a native of Jersey, I can tell you that the IZod Center was a dump, but you have to admit, that place does hold a lot of good wrestling memories

    ReplyDelete
  69. Cesaro & Kidd sounds like they should have a cowboy gimmick

    ReplyDelete
  70. Early contender for comment of the day.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Nice! He has until tomorrow or I'm sending the full thing that link and calling them up! Thanks guys!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Anyone else see the Oscar moms? I'm hoping Birdman and Grand Budapest win big. I don't understand Ralph Fienes not being nominated for Grand Budapest, though. I'm not surprised by Selma's director getting snubbed...that movie was only good because of the acting. I have a bad feeling Theory of Everything or Boyhood is winning all the awards, though.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Boyhood is gonna clean up. Theory of Everything, probably not.

    ReplyDelete
  74. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:35 AM

    If I Stay Wins or I riot.

    ReplyDelete
  75. if you had to pick would your rather be five feet tall, or seven?

    ReplyDelete
  76. I don't have Facebook so that might be why I get nothing on my end.

    ReplyDelete
  77. And the last image of him leaving, is Dixie on the flour begging him to stay.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I've not seen Boyhood yet. I keep hearing people either love it or hate it. I'm going to try seeing it this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Make sure you've blocked off a good chunk out of your schedule. It's a long one.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Ah okay. It gives the ability to send messages to people,
    but for a non-friend they’d go into his “Other” folder which he may not check.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Boyhood is awesome. No bad feelings there. Theory of Everything is good, but a total whitewash.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I am thrilled to see how well Whiplash did.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yeah...that's the big surprise for me. I would not be upset with it getting some Oscar love.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I'm sure he'd love to do just that, but I'm also pretty sure that WWE isn't offering.


    The one thing in their favor is that the Rumble is coming up, and Vince likes surprises.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Night, you're a fan, too? I'm definitely watching it, then.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I just went to wikipedia and if turn out the last best picture winner I saw in a theater was Forrest Gump

    ReplyDelete
  87. JK is a lock, but to see it get stuff for film editing is awesome

    ReplyDelete
  88. Surprised Oyelowo didn't get a nom. I thought he and Keaton would duke it out for Best Actor.

    No best animated nomination for The Lego Movie?! Fuck that shit.

    I wonder why Rosamund Pike doesn't get enough praise for her Gone Girl performance.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Go see Big Hero Six instead.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Boyhood is great. My favourite film of last year, not that I saw that many.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm actually NOT a fan of the movie. I think it was good...but I dunno...the latter half just didn't resonate with me.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Best Actor has been Keaton v. Redmayne for months

    ReplyDelete
  93. I know we disagreed on Seth Rogen's comedic acting, but you seem like a little reason who gives movies a lot of consideration, so a good word from you is worth seeing a movie.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Thank you, I appreciate that.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I saw Big Hero 6 twice. Great stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Agreed. But knowing how political the Oscars have been, I thought Oyelowo would have been a bigger contender.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Good to hear, my friend

    ReplyDelete
  98. I thought he'd at least get a nom due to how good he was and, as you said, how political the Oscars are.

    ReplyDelete
  99. They just closed your thread on GBA. What jerks! I wouldn't bother with that place again.

    ReplyDelete
  100. How come when I click "new" on Reddit under the Gaming thing,my thread doesn't pop up? The shortlink still works so I know it hasn't been deleted.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hmm. Probably 5, if I'm being practical. Easier to buy clothes and exist in the world. But, the Hoss in me says "7 feet?? FUCK YEAH!!"

    #HOSSZILLA

    ReplyDelete
  102. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:43 AM

    Birdman would be my pick for best picture.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I miss Cesaro's "Miracle" theme.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm in the love it camp. We got it from red box over the weekend. Watched it in two sittings (it's 2 hours 45 minutes) but I really enjoyed it.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Is it me or is this year's crop of Best Pictures not especially strong? I feel like it's similar to Slumdog Millionaire's year and most of these movies will be forgotten.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I didn't really think about the editing for it. I'm going to have to watch it again. I have an editor friend who points a lot of stuff out. I'll see if she wants to watch it with me.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Me too! I loved that movie!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Yeah I saw that. No outlet seems to want to help. Maybe Reddit is my best choice so far. I will be e-mailing the post master for mail fraud tomorrow if I get no confirmation numbers. Maybe he can get arrested or something out of this.

    ReplyDelete
  109. It's still so funny to me, as someone who watched the reality show version of NXT up to the never-ending version with Conor from the Ascension, to hear people express their love for that show. Complete, necessary overhaul. We did at least get D-Bry, BNB and AJ from the old version.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I think I'd hate being short worse. I'm 6'4" now, so I'm already used to being taller than most people. I'd hate getting the attention that a seven foot tall guy would would get, but it would be the lesser (and greater) of two evils

    ReplyDelete
  111. no, I don't like being drunk.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I wouldn't say it's that bad. The Slumdog Millionaire year was dire. I really, really liked Birdman and Grand Budapest. I'd be ok with those two being nominated any year, but I'm also a fanboy when it comes to Keaton and Wes Anderson. The Imitation Game was better than it had any reason to be, too. But yeah...best picture stuff? Hmm....if I remove my bias, I'm still a huge fan of Birdman, but other than that it kinda was a down year.

    ReplyDelete
  113. They shot the movie in 18 days which is absurd. I asked a director about that on facebook (Wayne Kramer who did The Cooler) and he explained to me that involves and yea, it's nut.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Good for Kidd and Cesaro. They just need to make sure they practice promo skills while they're down there.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'm at the other end of the spectrum (5'5"). Flying is more comfortable which is nice, but there are so few funny short jokes.

    ReplyDelete
  116. The Cooler! That was a good movie! It was really well done. 18 days for Whiplash??? Wow...now I'm even more impressed by it.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I've seen 3 Oscar nominated films.


    Guardians Of The Galaxy
    Captain America : The Winter Soldier
    X-Men : Days Of Future Past


    I need to watch more movies i suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  118. You need to take a breath, man. I know you're angry and frustrated and you have a right to be, but over-analyzing and freaking out isn't going to help.

    Take a walk, clear your head and try to work this out in a less emotional way.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I have to run out soon, but I'll come back and post my thoughts on the categories.

    Not quite my tempo. It's all good, no worries.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Possibly a little diversity might help

    ReplyDelete
  121. That's what I've heard from the "hate it" camp. I'll still check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Have they even given Kidd a real promo since he's become an asshole brat character? I think he would be pretty funny.

    ReplyDelete
  123. This is what he said:

    I directed The Cooler in 21 days and it's an insane high wire act dependent completely on how good your actors and crew are. You can be assured that Chazelle was super prepared and knew what he wanted for every setup... and had a great team behind him. He must have consolidated locations to avoid company moves (which eat up your days) and prelit his major sets because lighting takes a huge amount of time, assuming you want your film (and actors) to look good. That's what you do to just make your days, but to end up with the exceptional coverage that he gets in the film, he really has to know his shit and it shows. Huge props to his director of photography as well. There are some pretty complicated shots in there and they probably had zero time to pull them off. And, man, JJ Simmons had to have his dialogue down because that kind of constant verbal assault takes a lot of memorizing. They did a great job in editing as well. He also had the extra challenge of filming live music which has to be every bit as challenging as shooting gambling, especially craps where the entire table has to be reset with the right continuity after every take. With budgets getting more and more squeezed and filmmakers getting less and less shooting days, it becomes a near miracle that Chazelle can pull something like this off.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Hope wrestling fans in Ohio turn out for NXT to sell that arena out. Sadly, I have a feeling that if it doesn't, Vince will use that as "proof" that real wrestling booking (as opposed to sportz entertainment) doesn't sell.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Cena vs Orton,one more timeJanuary 15, 2015 at 7:50 AM

    Bergman,Kurosawa,Fellini,Billy Wilder,David Lean,....they're all good.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Wow! Nice! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  127. If we get a new Midnight Express out of the deal, I'm happy.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I do too. He's really the main beneficiary of NXT and Total Divas so far.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Yeah I'm headed to the gym in about 10.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Seems like 80% of nominated films come out in the years final quarter and none of them scream big screen 13 dollar ticket to me i suppose.


    There's lots of good films but more of the kind that i enjoy watching at home i guess.

    ReplyDelete
  131. All fun movies, to be sure, but I recommend at least watching Grand Budapest. It's funny and every scene looks interesting, plus you get to sound like a film snob afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I don't want that It's not anyone else's responsibility but mine.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Apparently JK was the nicest guy when the camera wasn't rolling. I understand it's all pretend, but that stuff just blows my mind

    ReplyDelete
  134. MSG, Barclays, and Nassau Coliseum all are open for August 23 if WWE wants to keep SummerSlam in the NYC area.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Cannot stand Wes Anderson post Rushmore. You'd have to tie me up Clockwork Orange style.
