  2. Rumblethon bitches! HBK/Sid at 97 currently on the big screen

    ReplyDelete
  3. You guys see Ziggler, Rowan, and Ryback's WWE.com profiles were moved to the Alumni section? I guess they're REALLY FIRED!! OMG!

    Ziggler put out a funny tweet calling the Authority a 4/10. https://twitter.com/HEELZiggler/status/552525857668222977/photo/1

    I should have the 9/15/86 episode of Primetime posted shortly.

    Bookmark it: http://www.dailymotion.com/strangerinthealps

    Also, I find it odd that Part 1 of the 9/8/86 Primetime has more views than the second part, 17 views to 9 views. I guess it wasn't that great of an episode.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Huh, Sid/Shawn only goes like 12 minutes, maybe he really did have the flu

    On to 98!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Shit. Maybe he actually is fired.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Part one of every video on the internet has more views than it's part two.

    ReplyDelete
  9. If he is, there's your Rumble chant.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Jon Jones tested positive for coke and went into rehab? WHAT THE FFFFF

    ReplyDelete
  11. Stranger in the AlpsJanuary 6, 2015 at 5:29 PM

    This is true.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Poor Dana, that guy cannot catch a break

    ReplyDelete
  13. 98 Rumble. The only Shawn/Taker match that doesn't hit ****!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Gonna try to squeeze it in before the girl gets home and we start watching Friends, gave the fuck up on Arrow

    ReplyDelete
  15. So does the fight vs. Cormier become a No Decision then?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ahhh yeah, Mike Tyson back in his social pariah days.

    I.e., when I really really really liked Tyson.

    ReplyDelete
  17. At least they got ahead of the story. It didn't break with "Jon Jones fails drug test" and then he checks into rehab two weeks later. He checked into rehab first before the test failure broke.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Jones didn't take any enhancements.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I wonder if they'll bother keeping him off the house show tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Cocaine isn't an enhancement, but weed is?

    ReplyDelete
  21. No. I heard that cocaine isn't against the rules or wont cause a no contest. They knew about the drug test before the fight even went down.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Cormier should've worn a Coca-Cola shirt to the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What happened with Arrow?

    And fucking weird because I just took a break from Arrow by starting Friends.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wonder if they told him. the people who run the testing obviously know but I wonder if Cormier was privy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. We were all in, having a really good time, then the super archer Black Arrow showed up and he was revealed as...the corporate guy behind The List.

    As soon as his face was revealed we just looked at each other and started audibly groaning, then laughing, to be fair that show walked a real fine line for us the whole time anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  26. All this Arrow talk is chafing me since we're still two weeks away from it coming back (ditto Flash)

    FACK DA TOMORROW

    ReplyDelete
  27. Feeling a Rumble tonight. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh yeah. i didn't love that at first but it actually develops into something pretty interesting.

    Season 2 had a moment like that for me where I groaned and had to take a break.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's some topen notch kayfabing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Was there ever a time Sherri and Luna hooked up outside of WWE? I've seen their stuff on Superstars and that was of course very cheesy, wondering if those two ever beat the living shit out of each other in JCP or AWA or something.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just started 98

    ReplyDelete
  32. NFL admits to fucking up in the Lions/Cowboys game

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-football/24939620/report-nfl-admits-to-lions-that-refs-made-second-costly-error

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm in. Where you at in it?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah who knows, we may come back to it anything's possible, but we're definitely kind of meh about it right now

    ReplyDelete
  35. I thought of something else when you said hooked up. Bow chicka wow wow

    ReplyDelete
  36. 10:07, about halfway through GOldie/Vader

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good call, ref

    (Sarcastic JR)

    ReplyDelete
  38. At the end of the day, Jim Caldwell lost that game for the Lions.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I do love when leagues admit to being completely rigged...and then the fan base instantly forgets and the next time this happens gets all outraged again...

    ReplyDelete
  40. ThebrazilianpsychoJanuary 6, 2015 at 5:39 PM

    Dana is now in rage mode.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh shit Artist Formerly Known as Goldust.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah this was a really weird period for him, well....an even stranger period I guess

    ReplyDelete
  43. For me it's a battle to compartmentalize the stuff on the show that irks me for the sake of the aspects of it that I really enjoy. I stick around for the fun Oliver/Diggle/Felicity trio, the island flashbacks, and the superhero arrow shooting and have to accept some other things I don't quite love as much.

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's funny because that's the part that the show picked up for me, because now the story had a true focus and direction rather than List Criminal Of The Week

    ReplyDelete
  45. Bah, Bones wasn't going to fight until July anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Before Preacher Dustin Runnels I'm assuming.

    ReplyDelete
  47. It's the perfect system.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I was going to review Wrestle Kingdom 9 but then laziness took over.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Now that Marv stopped, I can ask which part

    ReplyDelete
  50. Watching the celebrity impersonator episode of community. The weirder this show gets, the better it is.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Kinda sad watching Vader at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  52. At the very least, I liked that they got the hint about everyone hating Laurel and demoted her from female lead and love interest. THANK GOD

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sexy Flexy Biff KensingtonJanuary 6, 2015 at 5:41 PM

    Sometimes, not often, things go right for Biff. And it is those sparse moments, however rare, where I feel like I'm fucking good at what I do.

    ReplyDelete
  54. The initial reveal of the Black Archer I didn't like it but it grew on me as it went on and by the Season 1 finale I liked the character.

    On the other side, I hated the reveal in Season 2 of the masked woman.

    ReplyDelete
  55. He doesn't give even a little bit of a fuck at this point, although the Vader Bomb with Luna on his back is pretty fucking awesome

    ReplyDelete
  56. How wasn't coke against the rules? I'd think that could potentially help with pain tolerance.

    ReplyDelete
  57. ThebrazilianpsychoJanuary 6, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Rehab is not easy.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Canary. Didn't like the reveal of who it was and the actress is worse than Huntress.

    But I'm also reaching an awesome point in Season 2 so fuck that hoe.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love hating football, football itself gives me a new reason every week or so

    ReplyDelete
  60. The way I understood it was it was far enough away from the fight and he tested clean before or at the fight.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Evil Godwinns hunting Austin, I'm sure that will end well for them.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Beautiful show. I actually wish I listened to the regular New Japan commentators instead of JR and Striker. It felt like they were recording for a video game.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have no idea why it's not and weed is. But they said it wasn't against the rules out of competition. Idk.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Goddamn, why couldn't Sunny keep her shit together through the Attitude era?

    ReplyDelete
  65. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QreWzaa4Tis



    Best moment in a James Bond film. Ever. No question.

    ReplyDelete
  66. But I say no, no, no.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Quite possibly the best version of Goldust.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The year before this started with a vignette with her in a hot tub...she was totally at her peak in January 1997

    ReplyDelete
  69. Eh I knew it was coming, esp with the heavy S1 hints and Laurel being a non combat character. Plus she really became a breakout character for me, although I still can't decide if she's hot or not. The only time it made me shake my head is when she threatened Diggle to step aside and get out down, and even in that universe, that was hard to swallow.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Fucking hell, the refs admitting they fucked up is always THEE worst thing if you're a losing team. What will admitting you bungled a game changing call do other than add an extra drill to those screws? They say it like it will magically reverse the decision in the fans' minds, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  71. And feeling up the midgets.

    She DOES like short guys!

    ReplyDelete
  72. At times, they felt like outsiders, but overall, I enjoyed the American commentating. It filled me in on details I would have never known listening to the Japanese commentating.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I smell a big PR move by the UFC and Jones.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Yeah, as bad as the call was, punting it on a fucking 4th & 1 immediately afterwards buried them.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Could have gone so much longer. Crack has a lot to answer for.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Se7en or GTFO

    ReplyDelete
  77. Totally on the Sara wagon for me, even with the weird pouty thing she does with her face

    ReplyDelete
  78. JR was great when he was really into it. He nailed it during the Ishii match and the Nakamura match

    ReplyDelete
  79. Midget match means smoke break/order dinner, Sunny be damned.

    ReplyDelete
  80. It's hilarious when you consider they thought THIS was counter-programming to Rey and Eddie going out and burning houses to the ground.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yuck that was the worst. And the fucking CHIN. I wish Diggle woulda decked em right there. Hate it.

    And it makes it even angrier because she makes me wanna hate the show but then awesome shit keeps happening with Oliver so I cant. Dammit.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Started breaking up my weed as soon as I realized midgets were coming down the ramp haha

    ReplyDelete
  83. It's always bad when midgets come out.

    See also: Snackdown 06 and Super Porky.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I was watching some '96 Raws the other day and those porny viewer advisory vignettes were the BEST.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Because life sucks and then we die. Her entire life makes me sad.

    ReplyDelete
  86. That wasn't Tanya Roberts being snuck up on by a zeppelin

    YOU LIE

    ReplyDelete
  87. I'm almost done with Friends Season 1 and I enjoyed it much more than I anticipated. Never seen it outside of random moments changing the channel and didn't like it. But it's been solid.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hmm....I still go with the tank chase in Goldeneye, but I have a serious soft-spot for that movie

    ReplyDelete
  89. And yet Candido's life was sadder.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Ok, I will concede this about her chin: it is fucking absurd that no one who knew her previously can't tell who she is, because that chin is, uh, distinct.

    But other than that, the only thing I'll slag Canary for is getting in the way of Ollie and Felicity. Those two need to fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  91. A lot of those older shows get funnier by virtue of broadcast TV now not being allowed to make any jokes at all.

    In Seinfeld S1 they start doing tranny and Arab jokes and I was floored that such a milquetoast comedy would have to be on FXX today

    ReplyDelete
  92. I become so frustrated with teams who try to "establish the run" even though they're picking up 1 or 2 yards a carry every time. It just seems like a total waste of a play, and when you add up all those plays, it makes a difference between winning and losing.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Seasons 3-5 are the peak. Season 7's the low point but it gets better again in Season 8.

    ReplyDelete
  94. What's worse than midget wrestling?

    Sloppy midget wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  95. ThebrazilianpsychoJanuary 6, 2015 at 5:50 PM

    Bond introducing himself in Dr.No.

    ReplyDelete
  96. The fucking chin man.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Ursula Andress out of the water or Casino Royale parkour chase

    ReplyDelete
  98. I always get a kick out of how whenever someone is kayfabe fired the profiles are moved to the Alumni section IMMEDIATELY. Then whenever someone is endeavored for real, it takes weeks, sometimes months for them to be deleted.

    ReplyDelete
  99. "Triple H reportedly told talents a decision has yet to be made regarding who will win this year’s Rumble match, and he challenged talents to step up in the coming weeks as they will be evaluated before the big PPV on January 25th, and a final winner decision will then be made."


    So does that mean that it'll be re-written 500 times the day of the show, too?

    ReplyDelete
  100. The Polaski Academy story is my favorite in all of football, "You know what's really a waste of a play? Giving the ball back 25% of the time."

    ReplyDelete
  101. Sunny enforcing the "no closed fist" rule.

    ReplyDelete
  102. So many Lesbian jokes. Cutting edge television!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I totally agree about compartment with the show, because every time Thea or Laurel show up, I'm like BOOOOO then when Team Arrow do their thing, I'm like YAY

    ReplyDelete
  104. Yeah the Casino chase is pretty damn baller, frankly if we're going new-school for me nothing beats the moment in Skyfall when he gets into the train via a backhoe and just as the entire train is ripped to shreds behind him he stops and subtly fixes his cuff links, lol, fucking classic Bond

    ReplyDelete
  105. Seriously, how hard is it to round up talented midgets?

    ReplyDelete
  106. My shit is stopping and stalling every 3 seconds, hurray

    ReplyDelete
  107. To be rewritten first something must be written.

    ReplyDelete
  108. That's just the spot-rest-bitch-rest format.

    ReplyDelete
  109. 5-8 more inches of snow tonight. Yahoo..........

    ReplyDelete
  110. I have a hard time buying into midgets not dressed like cloven hooved animals really.

    ReplyDelete
  111. That dude was so whipped.

    "But Percy, I love her..."

    ReplyDelete
  112. Personally speaking, it's going to be amazing when Roman Reigns wins.

    ReplyDelete
  113. But on the other hand, she fucked an Al Ghul, so mad props from me

    ReplyDelete
  114. "Yes, Mark Henry, you should be the first one through Austin's dressing room door."

    ReplyDelete
  115. Should be a good thread to put in the HOF next to Extreme Rules and Bryan not winning last years Rumble

    ReplyDelete
  116. I'm predicting silence when he wins. No cares will be given by the crowd. No boos. No cheers. Nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  117. That's just scary. This should be the easiest time of year for those idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Where are you now my feed kept skipping and uh...I wouldn't be sad to FF through these midgets

    ReplyDelete
  119. And all the talents know he's lying, because he doesn't make the call on the show

    ReplyDelete
  120. Right before Rock-Shamrock. Highlight package.

    ReplyDelete
  121. What I read from that reddit guy isn that they've narrowed it down to Reigns and Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  122. It's going to be Reigns. They just can't tell everyone that because would you work hard if you knew the guy next to you everyone hates is guaranteed the big promotion?

    ReplyDelete
  123. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    ReplyDelete
  124. When Roman Reigns wins the Rumble (which I will buy for 9.99), I will stand up, stretch and then say alright, I'm done. They finally killed all my interest.

    ReplyDelete
  125. PWG, my brother! You will love wrestling again!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Are you kidding? That's when shit will finally get interesting around here.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I'm pretty hooked to NJPW and NXT at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Why haven't they taken the hint with her like they did with Laurel? Shit, I'll take Laurel over Thea all day. I'm convinced she's the worst person in existence.

    i have to do the same with Shield whenever Skye speaks.

    ReplyDelete
  129. By interesting, you mean people saying they're never watching again and then discussing Raw in the Raw thread?

    ReplyDelete
  130. You'd love PWG then.

    ReplyDelete
  131. LOL....I bet more than half this blog has no fucking clue who Paula Jones is

    ReplyDelete
  132. Business is about to pick up!

    ReplyDelete
  133. JR knew his history, that's for sure. I was bummed at no (unless I missed it) references to Tiger Hattori.

    ReplyDelete
  134. So... Jon Jones checked into rehab after he tested positive for cocaine.

    ReplyDelete
  135. It's fun in spurts.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Happy Heidenreich is finally getting props. Kudos, John.

    ReplyDelete
  137. This was fun for the time but even though it worked, this was a pretty crappy plan devised by McMahon. Why didn't they let Shamrock know the fix was in? The Bossman roll up was awesome though.
    You left out the best part: "TRIPLE H CAN'T RASSLE"

    ReplyDelete
  138. Because WWF Road Warriors never happened!

    ReplyDelete
  139. The correct answer to this poll is "Steiner Bros".

    You people should be ashamed of yourselves

    ReplyDelete
  140. Because Vince knew that Shamrock was emotionally vulnerable and manipulable. I don't want to spoil the next night on Raw since Logan will cover that soon, but Vince had a contingency plan for Ken.

    ReplyDelete
  141. It did happen! Good match too.

    ReplyDelete
  142. So, Scott, since it's a fictional tournament, how about doing a fictional rant for the winning match as if it were between both teams in their primes? Personally, I'd see it working best as heel Harts cheating like crazy against the face Road Warriors, but do what works for you.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Steiners aren't in the finals but the O.L.D. is?!?!?! Come on now

    ReplyDelete
  144. Steiners got a really good match out of the Nasty Boys!!!!!! Rick & Scott should win just for that!

    ReplyDelete
  145. Just a thought: it would be cool to do this concept with announcing teams come March Madness time. (Our own little March Madness bit). Same thing, where Gorilla and Bobby are one team and Bobby and Tony Schiavone can be another. There would have to be some pruning to get the teams down to the right number, but it would be easy enough to pick out some top ones from the last thirty years.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Have to pick the LOD.. They put butts in the seats, could main event and sold tons of merchandise. Really a no brainer in my view

    ReplyDelete
  147. Steiners got screwed.

    Anyway, after a back and forth match, the crowd breaks into a "USA!!" chant. Neidhart starts to laugh then realizes that the chants are for Hawk and Animal. Neidhart then proceeds to walk away rubbing his beard while Bret gets hit with the Doomsday Device (2nd attempt as Bret ducked the clothesline and got a nearfall with a victory roll on the 1st try) and The Road Warriors win.

    Or Hawk and Animal can't quite keep the HF down so they decide to beat them bloody with the spikes from their shoulder pads.
    OR Jimmy Harts other tag teams show up and beat the shit out of the HF. DiBiase pays off the ref so the match continues and the RW get the easy win.

    ReplyDelete
  148. HE'S GONNA PUKE!! HE'S GONNA PUKE!! HE'S GONN.. no he didn't

    ReplyDelete
  149. Although I agree that the Quebecers' entrance deserved to be seen, that HBK-Burt Reynolds segment is pure gold. A half-drunk Burt putting the Showstopper in his place, with chest hair running wild (from both guys)? Now that can't be passed up! :D

    ReplyDelete
  150. I agree. It wasn't really "lame" like I said. But cut off Alundra Blaze's entrance or something! Or Doink and Dink!

    ReplyDelete
  151. So what's the over/under on how many "tears in somebody's eyes" comments will we get on the announcement of the winner, whoever that might be?

    ReplyDelete
  152. I'm voting for Buff & Judy Bagwell

    ReplyDelete
  153. Don't forget "The Anvil's" pharmaceutical issues.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Hahahahaha....no.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Why did Shane McMahon sign Austin to a five year deal and give him a title shot if they wanted him out.. This was never explained. I just remember Shane saying I had to do it (give the title shot) to get him to sign the deal. But again why did he have to sign him in the first place ?

    ReplyDelete
  156. "I can use a man like you!"

    ReplyDelete
  157. Jim Ross was in top of his game that night. I remember laughing out loud when McMahon and the stooges skipped off after mankind best Austin and Ross goes "oh there they go again, skipping gayly away!"

    ReplyDelete
  158. The Rock/Mankind finale is even more impressive when you factor in they pretty much called most match on the fly.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I'm all about those finals, but I vote Steiners for the win.

    ReplyDelete
  160. AverageJoeEverymanJanuary 6, 2015 at 9:22 PM

    This final pairing makes me think about what could have been. Demolition vs Steiners. Would that have been awesome or a train wreck?

    ReplyDelete
  161. That Rock/Mankind series from late 98-Early 99 was pretty damn good
    SurSeries 98
    Rock Bottom 98
    Rumble 99
    St Valentines Day Massacre 99
    Empty Arena Match 99
    Raw title change for Mankind 99
    RAW ladder match 99

    Am I missing anything else?

    ReplyDelete
  162. CruelConnectionNumber2January 6, 2015 at 9:41 PM

    Twice as many votes for the final 4 matches as the opening rounds matches. 1 vote per IP address, plz.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Think they wrestled on raw after title change "for old times sake"

    ReplyDelete
  164. This was shit then (in an era of gold) and is the template for now.

    ReplyDelete
  165. I'm not disclosing who I voted for, but OH WHAT A RUSH this tournament turned out to be. A LEGION OF tag teams faced DOOM and gloom, but they all held their heads up high. They had a long ROAD ahead of them, but in the end they were all true WARRIORS.

    ReplyDelete
  166. To be fair, some of those opening (and 2nd) round matches didn't deserve voting.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Awesome. I don't think anyone could say Bill Eadie, for his era, was a bad worker, and Darsow was solid. Would've been a heck of a brawl... if the Steiners sell anything.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I voted for the Hart Foundation as well.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Don't forget Kenny Kaos. I'd go Kaos / Judy.

    ReplyDelete
  170. The Road Warriors had a much bigger impact on wrestling but I've always preferred watching the Hart Foundation so they got my vote.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Scott, the next tournament should be for the greatest IC champ.

    ReplyDelete
  172. So in the end, the dream tournament comes down to a match I do believe we actually saw (Harts and LOD faced each other at least once in WWF, right?)

    ReplyDelete
  173. WWF version Road Warriors? Really? Really? Really?

    ReplyDelete
  174. Taped for Coliseum Video, a week or two before 'Mania VII. I think it's on the Road Warriors DVD. It's good, but unspectacular (tops around 3-stars, if I had to give a rating without having seen it in probably 5 years).

    ReplyDelete
  175. What we have is two hearts beating as one... Bret Hart having the balls to quote a Phil Collins song deserves undying support for the Hart Foundation.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Man I remember this show so well and I think a lot of people actually called The Rock turn as there was no obvious top heel at the time and Austin was still white hot. Genius in hindsight as it gave the fans another 5 months or so of just begging The Rock to go face and when he did they had their second mega star.

    Nowadays, there is no way a new star who looks like Rock doesn't win this and is shoehorned in as top face and Austin would most certainly get "Daniel Bryaned" into a secondary role for not having the same look.

    A lot of people did also suspect the in ring return of Shawn Michaels at this show. Amazingly they would have to wait nearly 4 more years for that.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Man, that bit where Shane flips the bird at Austin... SUCH a great swerve. Of course Russo would over-do that over the years, but right here it was brilliant. It fucks over Austin SO BAD (one of my friends was PISSED watching this live on PPV), makes The Rock look like this giant unfair loser for winning the Title this way, and basically turns Foley into a massive sympathetic babyface overnight.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Hart Foundation got a good match out of the Road Warriors despite Hawk falling asleep in the match.
