BoD Daily Thread

Come here to talk about anything going on today.

80 comments:

  1. MonsoonClassic on youtube has like 9 million awsome looking WCWSN/Pro/WW matches from the early 90's. Since it's still fucking 40 below here, I know what I'm doing for the day.

    One of the best YT accounts.

    Up there with MuttonAndHam for the old-school Japanese Garbage.

  3. Sami Zayn is on the Abu Dhabi tour cutting promos in Arabic. This is probably the first Vince has heard of him.


    I anxiously await the debut of Sheik Muhammad Zayn on the Main Roster.

  4. ClassicsWWC is another great one I've been watching latley. So many blood filled 80's brawls.

  5. I'll never watch Raw again if they don't make a Garfield reference tomorrow night and put one of the midgets in a box labelled "Abu Dhabi"

  6. Bobby Eaton vs Cactus Jack

    -From the Oct 5/1991 edition of Worldwide.

    Eaton charges Cactus in the aisle, and suplexes him on the floor to a big pop. They brawl in the ring, and the bell goes to start the match. Eaton with some STIFF rights, but Cactus knocks him outside and hits a clothesline from the apron.

    Old school southern style crowd here, as packets of fans are just screaming at the top of their lungs for the entire match.

    -As you can probably tell, a hot crowd is very high on the list of factors I look for to enjoy a match. An good crowd can make a bad match great, but a dead or obnoxious one can also easily make a good match boring and/or irritating as all fuck. (See HHH/Jericho WM x-8, or the main event at GAB 91 for the former, and most ROH/Post 2002 WWE for the latter)

    -Back to the match as Cactus drops Eaton throat first across the guardrail and throws him back in. The announcers are really putting Cactus over as a monster.

    Cactus with more punches and an earlier, cooler-looking version of the Stroke for 2.

    Back to the outside, as Eaton bumps around some more. Cactus pulls back the mats, but Eaton hits a back suplex on the concrete and Foley's head just BOUNCES of the concrete.

    I have no idea how the fuck he wasn't brain-dead by the late 90's. Some of these bumps are hard to watch now. Eaasier than a DK or Benoit match at least.

    -Eaton continues the comeback in the ring to a very loud "Bobby" chant. Neckbreaker for 2. Bobby goes to the top, but Abdullah the Butcher comes right the fuck out of left field to push him off to give Cactus the 3 at around 6:00

    -I guess Eaton would turn heel shortly after this? I didn't watch WCW originaly until 1993, and haven't to this point seen much of their TV from 1990-92.

    Anyways I loved this. Great heat throughout, insane bumping from Cactus. Eatons work as a face is excellent. His selling and mannerisims are just great here.

    This plus Mick Foley being his usual crazy self makes for a really intense, fun but short TV match. Another 15 minutes makes it an all time classic, as it stands just a small hidden gem ***1/4

    So since I never get sick...and I don't have work or gym scheduled today I have decided to stage a sick day. Which means I spend the day in sweatpants and my NY Giants hoodie and amuse myself by watching wrestling and fighting with my cat.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I looked at his page and there's two videos there?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Eaton was awesome. It's too bad he couldn't talk b/c he was one of the smoothest in-ring guys ever. I loved his little mini-singles push when he got the tv title.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm doing a re-watch of Oz. Weird mix of great storylines but kinda crappy acting at times.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I always liked him as a heel, never saw much of his TV title run. I'm digging it so far though, His babyface expressions are gold.

  12. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:21 AM

    I have no interest in reading your post but Bobby Eaton vs Cactus Jack must have been awesome....On that note..Am I the only one perplexed as to why Stunning Steve didn't take Bobby Eaton on as his partner against the Anderson and Roma at the 93 Clash? I mean it was maybe the greatest tag team wrestler of all time. Dammit

    ReplyDelete
  13. Plus they had the Dangerous alliance background too. That match would have ruled

    ReplyDelete
  14. You should wait a few weeks and then watch. Then you can watch Academy Award winner JK Simmons raping dudes left and right!

  15. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:29 AM

    The problem with the DA was this...they never had a legit main event guy. Rude was great and all but no one ever saw him above IC/US title level. At the time Luger was Champion, then Sting was, then Vader was and the DA never quite got there shot at the main event. Until War Games when they self destructed. (Fuck I am 35. How do I remember this shit from when I was 12?)

    O'Rielly was the man. Sad he was reduced to insurance commercialls

  17. Buongiorno! Hope everyone had a fine Valentines Day.

  18. It's cold and there is nothing on tv. Still amazed that XFL was such a colossal failure. I'd watch it right now if it was on. Cold Sunday afternoons was the perfect slot for that crap.

    ReplyDelete
  19. About to restart the WWF rewatch. KotR97 here I come!

  20. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:37 AM

    Your cold? Must be in the NC my man.

    ReplyDelete
  21. South Carolina. It's like 32 here which is death levels to us.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh shit. Taker vs Faarooq. Ahmed always seemed to get hurt at the worst possible times.

    ReplyDelete
  23. He was my favorite character. I wouldn't feel too bad about him in the insurance commercials. He probably makes a ton of money from them.

    ReplyDelete
  24. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:39 AM

    Throwing it out there...Triple H's entrances are better then the Undertakers. Sure Undertaker wins for pure spectacle but Hunter wins for creativity and being more diverse.

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's really weird to see him in those insurance commercials playing kindly old Professor Burke.

    ReplyDelete
  26. About to get flamed, but, I think Cena's won as far as WM goes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I seriously haven't looked at the Network in over a week. Im definitely cancelling. Access to classic matches is something I thought i'd love but has mostly lost my interes, and I can watch all the new stuff on Hulu. And I watch Mania with friends so I can dont need it there.Dunzo

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ahmed was going to job at Canadian Stampede and then what? The belt was always going to Bret so he didn't really lose out on anything.

    ReplyDelete
  29. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:40 AM

    Fuck dude. Sorry. It's 32 in NC. This is why I left NJ. to avoid days like today

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm fucking 30, I have no idea how I remember the late 90s better than the late 2010s. Always wondered about the DA not having a world title guy too. We didn't get WCW where I lived til 1993, so I only saw all that stuff after the fact. Luger would have fit, but I think he was gone by mid-92? Too bad Flair wasn't there at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, we're supposed to get snow tomorrow afternoon. I'm assuming you're getting it too

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yeah. I was thinking more about Slam 96 where they made a huge deal about him fighting the winner the next night. Looked like a one day Vader reign.

    ReplyDelete
  33. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:41 AM

    Beecher should avoid the academy awards.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just made a bag of popcorn that only had about 20 unpopped kernels in it. I'm not sure if it's possible to get a higher success rate than that.

    ReplyDelete
  35. MaffewOfBotchamaniaFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:42 AM

    Oz. The only TV series where the first season is the best.

    Well, that and Twin Peaks.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The second half of Twin Peaks S2 picked up again.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Take away the injuries and I'm wondering how far Vince was going to go with him. Does anyone see Ahmed main eventing WM 13 if Vince thought he could count on him?

    ReplyDelete
  38. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:43 AM

    Still...I wish he would have led one of those commercials with...I got with Dr. Nathan. Buy insurance.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Things are really starting to get hot and heavy over at www.danimalcrossing.com.

    This weekend we had a Fastlane preview written by Devin Harris go up. In addition to that the first Meekin column was posted which dealt with a mobile game review. It's still early, but we're all having a lot of fun with it.

    I heard tuesday...but still

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think Sid still wins the title at Survivor Series but Ahmed's definitely a made main eventer they desperately needed.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fuck you guys it's -31c here.

    ReplyDelete
  43. What is that in American?

    ReplyDelete
  44. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:45 AM

    Yeah your right. fuck us, (I'm not being sarcastic)

    ReplyDelete
  45. JR talking about Ahmed being a blood. Foreshadowing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I still don't think Vader was ever going to win at SS. They were getting that belt off Shawn over his dead body. Shawn vs Ahmed on Raw would have been weird to say the least.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Not you both in particular, just anyone above 0 degrees right now.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Are you Santa Claus? move to Florida

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh no way Shawn's giving it up.

    ReplyDelete
  50. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:48 AM

    Hunters and Takers were badass. Cena's were good. Not great.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Free health care and gorgeous 80-90f summers keep me here during this dry dildo of a season.

    ReplyDelete
  52. It's rare, but it still happens. I bought a bunch of the first issue of Saga when it first came out intending to give it to people. I never got around to it and then the trade came out and it was easier to give that out. I ended up selling the floppies for around $100/each on eBay. That was total dumb luck, though. I wouldn't recommend doing that hoping to make money on it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hear ya. Keep warm man.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's easy and convenient to make steroid jokes but he still has to lift the weight. He may be chemically enhanced but he still put the work in. I give dude his props.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Cena's best for me, was Wrestlemania 25.

    ReplyDelete
  56. disagree. piledrivers should always be done with the camera NOT facing front because most of them are horribly business exposing when you can see 18 inches of space between the head and the mat.

    ReplyDelete
  57. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 9:56 AM

    I told someone at the Gym yesterday that I take my training philosophies from, Macho, Man Randy Savage, Chris Beniot, The Dymamite Kid, and Triple H. One is dead. One is dead via a murder suicide, one is a sociopath in a wheelchair, and one will run the WWE one day. Take that for what you will

    ReplyDelete
  58. Shooting roids and watching porn. He talks about the porn on his first major dvd.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I thought Oz didn't really start going downhill until they killed off Adibisi. It was basically a very violent live action cartoon after that. Aging pills and all that shit.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I like how you used cold first before breakup sand death

    ReplyDelete
  61. I don't think we fight all that match.

    ReplyDelete
  62. King being in the 97 KotR is depressing.

    ReplyDelete
  63. YankeesHoganTripleHFanFebruary 15, 2015 at 10:00 AM

    That's my point...Always intense all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Ok fuck this youtube VHSrip shit, I'm putting KOTR 97 on, b/c you guys are talking about it and I haven't seen it in probably 15 years.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 15, 2015 at 10:02 AM

    It's a trap! Do a barrel roll!

    ReplyDelete
  66. There was a real lack of midcard depth. Who else could they have used, Rockabilly?

    ReplyDelete
  67. This is how I spent my Valentines http://i.imgur.com/wSlvt0m.gif

    we live to fight bro. Daniel Bryan could beat brock at maina and we would still fight.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Helpful hint that paid off today: if you have a neighbor with a snowblower and he helps you out the first time it snows, bring him a 12 pack as thanks. He'll definitely come back.

    ReplyDelete
  70. King being in anything since the mid 90's is depressing.

    ReplyDelete
  71. He was huge when he came back after a knee injury in 1999.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Ah okay. I'd take the WM27 match over the WM28 match in that case.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'm more about story telling too... But for me the story there was that Shawn was a little bitch, all three were old and boring, and the most entertainment for me came from Jim Ross. The WM27 match was nothing special but I would still take it over the WM28 match.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Yup. I can see people liking the WM28 match because they were on the same menstruation cycle as HHH, Shawn and Taker. End of an era. Due to menopause. Same with the Flair retirement match.

    Love has no place in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  75. See I liked Shawn being a bitch. He was the guy that clearly didn't understand where it was going. Despite both guys telling him this was going to dirtier and uglier than he was expecting.

    ReplyDelete
  76. It just reminded me of the old "bad days" Shawn, whom I disliked personality wise.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Honestly with all of these tv shows/ movies being made based off of comics the market is huge. Just like Kenny said below books like Saga, Y the last man, etc. fetch 100-200 for first issues.

    ReplyDelete
  78. And I'll take the WM17 match over both of them.
