BoD Daily Update

Original Plans for the Fast Lane PPV

Before the Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan match was announced, the original plans were for Reigns to beat a "top heel" and for Bryan to put over Bray Wyatt at the show. The company wanted to keep Wyatt looking strong for his potential match at WrestleMania against the Undertaker.

Who Put Together the Royal Rumble Match?

Jamie Noble was the producer for the match with Joey Matthews as his assistant. Also involved in the process were Michael Hayes, Brian James (Road Dogg), and Pat Patterson.

Ring of Honor Facing Financial Difficulties?

It has been reported that Sinclair Broadcasting rejected a pitch from Joe Koff of RoH to expand the company as it appears that they want the company for consistent programming but are not looking to invest strongly or even take chances to build it up. Also, Sinclair has told the company to "tighten" it's spending as their December PPV had less buys (8,000) than expected and their will be much less wrestlers brought into the company going forward. Some talent like Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett, and Maria are not currently under contract as a result.

Comments

  1. Stick to being stooges for Rollins, J & J. Cause you don't deserve another shot at booking a Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Same here, but my ass is in the office.

    ReplyDelete
  3. That sucks about ROH. I'm not sure what their next move would be even with more money, but halting expansion sounds bad.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I had to come in because everyone else is either on vacation or in meetings. They're "making it up to me" by buying me lunch. I can barely talk and I've been vomiting with a headache since 4 AM. 90% of my job is one the phone...these people.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Aside from Bryan the Rumble match was fine. Kudos to Jamie Noble and his wife Nidia.

    ReplyDelete
  6. "You're a bigger fool than me"

    FTFY

    ReplyDelete
  7. I watched Mania 1 last week. I'm going through the SNME and PPV from 85-96. I just finished The Big Event.


    WM 1 is a weird show because they hadn't really figured out all the bells and whistles in the presentation department so it comes off like an MSG show.

    ReplyDelete
  8. What "top heel"? Orton? Big Show? Kane?

    ReplyDelete
  9. WrestleMania is in 40 or so days right? Just shoot for one a day. Or two on weekends!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yeah it really does. It's weird watching this. I don't know who any of these refs are, the show is painfully awkward, and the lack of music is different.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Funny thing is Noble was in charge of last year's Rumble too. I remember over 10 years ago Malenko got a lot of heat because there was a bad match between Rhyno and Tajiri at a houseshow yet Noble seems to fly under Vince's radar.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Because if Vince crosses him, Vince will have to deal with Jamie Noble BOY!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Rollins would of been my guess

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think I'm still going to watch 2 because it's probably been 10-15 years since I watched that show start to finish

    ReplyDelete
  15. First three matches of Mania have one living competitor and one dead competitor

    ReplyDelete
  16. In other news Curtis Axel has been demoted after winning the Rumble https://38.media.tumblr.com/347d1d1971a1ba431bc4920e5467e763/tumblr_nj9z54JVEz1s8dwjeo1_400.gif

    ReplyDelete
  17. Meltzer doesn't seem to realize that whatever WWE does was always the plan all along.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Really? That's weird because I've actually enjoyed every single one I've watched so far haha. A breezy hour. Not every one has been a homerun but they've been solid entertainment.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I forgot it was that long. I was going to watch it but I saw it was 3 hours and decided to skip around. I ended up just watching the Bulldogs/Dream Team tag, Funks/Tito&JYD tag, and the main event.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dean Malenko wasn't a part of the Stooges 2k14-15. Key difference there.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes, let us job one of the most popular superstars in our company to a guy that will lose to a guy who is 50, looks 900 and wrestlers once a year.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I breezed through last nights evening thread and your comments about the SNME's kinda put me off watching them. They sound pretty shite.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I had the edited VHS version of Mania 2 when I was a kid. It was one of only about 10 videos I had and I still barely ever watched it. I don't know if I could bear the full 3 hour version.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're a better man than me!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Beefcake looks so different from how I typically remember him. And why exactly is he from parts unknown?!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well they should never book a Rumble again.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I bet they put special emphasis on that Titus O'Neil elimination.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's better than WrestleMania 2 at least. That show is long and disjointed as hell.


    They'd get it right on the 3rd try.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That sucks. I felt like hell yesterday as well but decided to work. Couldn't do it today

    ReplyDelete
  30. After that Punk podcast, I wanted to make a video with clips of HHH and Punk with that best friend song playing in the background.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sick as a dog. Just started up WrestleMania 1

    ReplyDelete
  32. So, either way, Bryan was gonna job at Fast Lane.


    This company, I swear.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well they sure won't be booking next year's Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Not really. It was heavily front loaded with a lot of low and midcarders.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Is that a random show you picked or are you doing all the WM?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm sure the Bray/Reigns match was one of the 500 ideas they had that day.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Like the avatar. Court Bauer made mention of it on his podcast and how just the year before HHH and Michaels were trashing Punk in a tryout match.

    ReplyDelete
  38. You're a man's man Magic Mike. I'm not sure why that show slides under the radar for worst WrestleMania while other shows like 9, 11, and 13 get all the hype. 13 has a GOAT contender, 11 has two good matches. 2 is a dawg.

    ReplyDelete
  39. What top heel is there? Rollins? Or a Kane/big show handicap match?

    I bet the fans would have loved for Bryan to job again...

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm going to attempt them but I know I don't have time to finish all of these lol

    ReplyDelete
  41. Pray tell, what top heel? Jobbing Rollins to Reigns would be fucking stupid...and who do you have left? Big Show or Kane? That's just asking for a disaster.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yeah, that FastLane card would have gone over like a fart in church.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Kinda bet Noble was given some specific instructions of things Vince and HHH wanted to occur at the Rumble.

    ReplyDelete
  44. They're going to buy you lunch when you're puking and that's "making it up to you?"


    What assholes.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Maybe I'll check that stuff out but I just remember there being so much utterly worthless junk. Orndorff doing racist taunts at Mr Fuji, Corporal Kirchener, who the fuck is George Wells, Piper pretending to box, all those NFL players I couldn't possibly care about. UNCLE ELMER. An awful awful show. Maybe one of the worst sequels ever.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm sure they're expecting the crowd to rally behind Bryan, but the hope is that Bryan/Reigns tear the house down to get the smart fans back on Reigns' side and more receptive to Roman being the face of the company.

    If Daniel Bryan can't carry Reigns to a great match, then his title reign after Wrestlemania will be DOA.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Top heel is code for either Big Show or KANE.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Fandango...

    ReplyDelete
  49. You're dead on. What I listed was the only worthwhile stuff stuff on the whole card.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Well Jamie Noble can't be faulted with the talent he's given. He only writes the match, doesn't pick the talent.

    ReplyDelete
  51. It was a boring, badly booked mess.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Burnt Biscuit! Biff KensingtonFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:30 AM

    I really wish that some of the top talent from the WWE would migrate to New Japan, if only to get a fair shake. While I'm sure guys like Daniel Bryan are content to ride out their contracts, people like Cesaro could use a fresh start overseas.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Burnt Biscuit! Biff KensingtonFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:30 AM

    If Daniel Bryan can't carry Reigns to a great match, then Reigns is DOA.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yup, and also I have to stay the whole work day 7-5, so going home early isn't even a reward.

    ReplyDelete
  55. June 23rd Prime Time Wrestling...fast forward about 3/4 thru and watch Harley Race give Lanny Poffo A BRAINBUSTER ON THE FUCKING CONCRETE FLOOR! And it's nothing more than a transition move!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The winner spent the majority of the match laying around and KANE and Big Show were prominently featured eliminating everyone like they were chumps. Especially egregious is the way they just tossed Wyatt like nothing when WWE wants to keep him strong for Taker. That entire portion is completely inexcusable and terrible booking.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Gotta keep building up Bray Wyatt and putting him over existing talent so that he can do a job to Undertaker for his one match a year. That's not at all crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I can't wait until Undertaker returns to his American Badass gimmick this year http://dalesdesigns.net/oldguyonmoped.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  59. Two polls of the Round of 32 went up today, two more tomorrow; voting open through the weekend and Sweet 16 kicks off early next week

    ReplyDelete
  60. The best part is they are showing they know HOW to actually book someone strong. It is absurd it's for this stupid reason.

    ReplyDelete
  61. You don't think Bray's going over?

    This is the start of Taker's epic Wrestlemania losing streak.

    By Wrestlemania 50, he'll be almost .500.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Burnt Biscuit! Biff KensingtonFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:37 AM

    I've quit letting stuff like this bother me. In all honesty, they're going to do what they want in the end and still make money doing it. I'll watch NXT like a lemming and call it square.

    ReplyDelete
  65. WWF was a northeastern company...it took them awhile to realize that San Francisco actually existed.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Kid ROCK BawitdabadadangadangdFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:37 AM

    I agree.

    Deport Cesaro!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I also expect Vince was very specific about D-Von being number 2 and Bubba being number 3

    ReplyDelete
  68. Burnt Biscuit! Biff KensingtonFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:37 AM

    Ha, jokes on you! It was in Richfield, Ohio a half hour away. Nyuk

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ziggler got two minutes. Ambrose, Ziggler, Wyatt and Bryan were all eliminated like they were nothing. Kane and Show were in the final 4, and the Rusev ending was just messy. That's bad booking.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Goddammit, I really thought ROH was turning things around. I know Sinclair has never invested heavily in them and has always left them to fend for themselves, but I thought they were making more and doing better. Oh well, hopefully they'll be ok....

    ReplyDelete
  71. According to ewrestlingnews, it was Big Show.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh damn this SNME takes place in Cleveland Ohio! Word up Blog of Doom!

    ReplyDelete
  73. And Bray has already defeated Ambrose decisively and then Ziggler. I wouldnt mind if it was just to build up Bray. Sigh....

    ReplyDelete
  74. AverageJoeEverymanFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:37 AM

    Vince = "ISNT SAN FRANCISCO THAT FAG TOWN?! YOU'RE FROM PARTS UNKNOWN CHAMP!"

    ReplyDelete
  75. Jokes on Richfield because they billed it as Cleveland! Guess Richfield ain't Hollywood enough. Nyuk.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hogan cuts a hell of a promo here. Some definite heel edge to it.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Why can't this company remember how to book people strongly in the 80's? This is why I pretty much stick to the 80's-2002 cause at least there wasn't any 50/50 bullshit.



    I remember on Prime Time before Wrestlemania III Hogan jobbed to Hercules by being distracted by Andre The Giant with a roll up full nelson. Then Gorilla kept hyping some futuristic wrestling network that was 9.99 a month.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Why the fuck did they give David Sammartino and Brutus Beefcake so much time?

    ReplyDelete
  79. For a shitty finish too! Give that time to Steamboat.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh except Lord Alfred Hayes. Who is the worst, most awkward buffoon I've ever seen in front of a camera. The fuck did this guy ever have ajob?

    ReplyDelete
  81. AverageJoeEverymanFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:41 AM

    For serious though watch the AWA Super Sunday card on Youtube (if it is still there). Beefcake is billed as Eddie Boulder and is bigger than Hulk Hogan in the gunshow department. Also it has one of Hulks fake title wins on it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Kid ROCK BawitdabadadangadangdFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:41 AM

    Goddammit Tito is such a bitch on that show.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hogan's buddy vs Sammartino's kid?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Is there much footage out there of Hogan as WWF champion between January 1984 and Wrestlemania I? I think I literally know nothing about his run as champion up until that point.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I was really enjoying Mania I up until that point. It's really the only truly terrible thing on the show.

    ReplyDelete
  86. It's sort of a suburb of Cleveland.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I saw a house show match he had with John Studd in the meadowlands sometime in 84. Notable for using Eye of the Tiger and a crazy hot crowd.


    I'm sure WWF may have some MSG or Boston Garden shows on the network from that time. The big arena shows they'd run but I haven't checked.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Why does Dunn keep cutting to the crowd during a big move? https://i.imgur.com/iXBXYs1.gif

    ReplyDelete
  89. Kid ROCK BawitdabadadangadangdFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:43 AM

    Vince Sr. made keeping Alfred on one of his conditions of sale.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Well Big Show won the feud Monday so no further matches needed.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Hmm yeah I'll search for house shows. I don't think he ever defended the title on weekly TV.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'll be doing my best to make sure Smells Like Teen Spirit doesn't win! Hate that song.

    ReplyDelete
  93. If I believed that Bryan coming back and taking a series of losses was part of a comeback arc which culminated in a momentous title win (as it appears New Japan are doing with Okada) then it'd be fine. But we all know it isn't and that the booking is done week-to-week and seemingly always in a panic.

    ReplyDelete
  94. That's just bad direction.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Yeah it sucks. I wish Sinclair would put a bit more money into them. Their TV looks like ass visually. It seems like they are funding them with peanuts.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Kid ROCK BawitdabadadangadangdFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:45 AM

    I think all the original employees. Gorilla had the same deal.

  99. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogFebruary 5, 2015 at 7:47 AM

    Now is the time to swerve everyone and build to Cena-Taker. Let everyone think that Taker's TV return (we will know before it happens, because Interwebz) is to kick off his feud with Bray. And while we all eye-roll and bemoan the prospects of Taker beating Bray at Mania.....it's Cena who gets interrupted by UT (during a RAW promo where John is apologizing for his loss to Rusev at Fast Lane). Taker's role has reversed: rather than everyone else challenging the Streak, now he is challenging the biggest star around in order to prove he can still win the big one. Rusev can move on without returning the token job to Cena. We get an actual "dream match" draw out of Taker's appearance instead of a mid-card win over Wyatt. Bray can face a returning Orton. Rusev can beat Ryback or take his first loss against Bryan or something.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Sorry about that. Just added it about fifteen minutes ago to the main page.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Ah cool. Look at that crappy little home-made Hulkamania shirt he's wearing! Aww.

    ReplyDelete
  102. So have I. We're at the same spot. I think. m thinking about boycotting though because they keep jobbing out the hot new indy darling Corporal Kirchner to big lugs that cant wrestle.

    ReplyDelete
  103. And Bryan hasn't been losing matches.

    ReplyDelete
  104. New Japan aren't just going to sign every disgruntled North American wrestler though. Their priority is always going to be their own talent.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm trying to run through them too. I'm in the middle of WM4. Those early WM cards are pretty brutal.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh I'm sure they'll put the blame squarely on Bryan

    ReplyDelete
  107. By bitch you mean hero to everyone right?

    ReplyDelete
  108. If the IWC existed in 1986 the WM2 meltdown would have been epic.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Is it me? Am I one of those 5? OH GOD, AM I ONE OF THOSE FIVE PEOPLE YOU NEED TO PUNCH?


    Or did I just make it six?

  111. Damn Am I Good is still the greatest of those.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Did you book the Rumble?

    ReplyDelete
  113. Those poor TBS viewers. Jerry Valiant, really?

    ReplyDelete
  114. Masked Superstar and Jerry Valiant. Maybe
    Bryan’s first feud as champion being with Kane wasn’t so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  115. The way they pretty much bypassed everything to put Roman in the main event at Wrestlemania is like putting in a cheat code to get to the final boss without obtaining power ups and upgrades along the way

    ReplyDelete
  116. Ricky Steamboat is committing a crime of fashion here. UGLY ensemble.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I'm still campaigning for Bray Wyatt to be WWE Champion.


    The moment this happens will be a joyous day in which I pay to watch again, and actually watch a RAW for the first time since August.


    In a perfect world, he beats Taker at Mania, and the next night on RAW, he beats Roman Reigns for the title. The year of the buzzard begins.


    FIREFLIES EVERYWHERE, and SISTER ABIGAIL OUT OF NOWHERE!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I'm hoping him taking on UT is a "passing of the torch".

    ReplyDelete
  121. Exactly dude.

    ReplyDelete
  122. DB can. I doubt Brock can.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I'm telling you, that would be awesome. The music, the lights, the title around his waist underneath the Hawaiian shirt. The coked out promos about being on a mountain of dead bodies. It would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I bought that PPV and my cable company only charged me $3.99. Happened to other friends of mine. Might have something to do with their money woes.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Not that I'm anti-Wyatt, but it's typical that this sudden need to keep him strong is to ultimately benefit the Undertaker.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Yeah, it's ridiculous but so clearly WWE-like.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Crowd is going to get ugly is Bray Wyatt goes over Undertaker.

    ReplyDelete
  128. It's Bray Wyatt putting a legend out of his misery. Taker can't Rest in Peace until he passes the torch well have Bray snatch that torch and finally Undertaker can Rest. In. Peeeeeace.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Maybe the Rumble would have been better if they put people in charge of it who could spend the whole night preparing and finalizing it instead of getting thrown all over the building by Cena and Lesnar.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Aye. Those early vignettes showed something seriously fucked up. Not just some ramblin' man with a couple of goofs behind him.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Every wrestler? How about every human being? Making a homemade T-Shirt was their form of social media back then.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I'd fake a collapse on the way to the store.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I'm listening to a podcast called We Hate Movies and the hosts are tearing down Schwarzenegger's Sabotage. HILARIOUS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  134. I may spray diarrhea all over the walls to spite them at this point. Little chocolate waterfall action.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Caliber would not be pleased.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Just like Golden Corral.

    ReplyDelete
  137. It would be pretty embarrassing if young, agile and big Bray Wyatt loses to a 50-year old man who looks 70 and can barely move around.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Ole was the king of those shirts. I loved the one that just said PRO WRESTLING on the back.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I guess it makes sense to keep Bray strong to make the match seem interesting... but there is no way Bayou Billy should be beating the Undertaker at Wrestlemania.

    ReplyDelete
  140. It would be great. He and Reigns don't seem to have much chemistry so I hope they don't feud over the title. I'm hoping they treat Wyatt like Taker in the 90's where he's still the same scary guy but they let the fans cheer him.


    Bray vs. Rollins(post cash in) I am there!

    ReplyDelete
  141. No way Taker is jobbing in two Wrestlemanias in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Would that not just be sad to watch though? Then it’s just Wyatt beating up an old man.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I'm down for Wyatt to be World Champ and I think it'll happen at some point.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Hogan/Orndorff ends in super lame DQ finish. But Piper and Hogan staring down is pretty epic.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Masked Superstar was fine, had some credibility. Jerry Valiant was trash of the lowest order.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I watched that yesterday he was all over her haha. Talking about getting her in a Rolls Royce.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Rarely. There are matches out there as I remember seeing them as a kid on video tape but is imagine they're very hard to find now. The msg shows might be the best bet to find but that's purely a guess

    ReplyDelete
  148. Had it happened last year, it would've helped Bray immensely because he wasn't as hot as he'd been before Cena crushed him. Now, you can only hope it's a passing of the torch.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Use this link instead, two seperate posts went up

    ReplyDelete
  152. Cough/sneeze on their food.

    ReplyDelete
  153. The TV show is hard to watch, even for me. They're kinda stuck in this weird limbo where they need a huge investment to look better to make more money. They're kinda stuck at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Have you seen it? I was considering checking it out. But if it's just a bunch of young guys throwing themselves around while an old guy just stands there, I'll watch Bray job to Taker instead.

    ReplyDelete
  155. So there's at least 5 people I need to punch.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Update on my sick day at work: They just sent me to the store to get food and drinks for the meeting. I am sick and HAD to come in so someone could answer phones. So they send me to the store. For an hour.

    ReplyDelete
  157. And then get it so very wrong on the 4th try.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I don't think so, Hayes debuted either around or at the same show where Backlund lost the title, which was almost a year after Vince Jr. bought the company, and had never worked in New York before that.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I just want Bray to be an even darker character, the kind that frightens little children so that when a hero finally bests him, it means something. He's supposedly so evil and villainous but he doesn't do any such thing. Even in the 90s, when Undertaker was just coming up, he was doing more dastardly things than Bray. Even Papa Shango seemed more vile.

    And why the fuck did they spin Rowan and Harper off anyway if they weren't going to change their gimmicks at all? Harper jobbed to fucking Ryback this past Monday. Harper and Rowan's presence helped Bray's persona.

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'm the biggest Taker fan around but I will be disappointed if it's anything but Bray getting passed the torch and winning the match.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Why? It's not like Undertaker losing at WrestleMania is unprecedented.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Shoot, even Nikita Koloff sold that ish for weeks against Dick Murdoch.

  163. OOOLEY OLE OLE OLE.... OOOOOOLE... OOOOOOLE!

    ReplyDelete
  165. Oh god, "Gentleman" Jerry Valiant was awful.

    ReplyDelete
  166. My favorite lord Alfred hayes was him creeping on that bimbo through all of The Wrestling Classic.

  167. Yeah, turn him face, keep him weird, let him feud with Rollins for a solid 3-4 months -- great idea.

  168. Bray just needs to beat Taker in 10 minutes or less. No sell the situp, Demon Crab walk, Sister Abigail, Rest in Peace Taker style pin.

  169. He had a great match against Masked Superstar you can find on Daily Motion.

  170. I remember Bill Mercer being very informative in the independent World Class DVD... and the other behind the scenes guy too... Mickey?


    Seemed like a nice gay couple.

  171. He had debuted by coming out and strutting around the ring on TV, with the announcers having no idea who he was. I guess he was supposed to be a sort of mystery man at first.

  172. Seriously. Just have Bray shrug off the mind games and have Undertaker realize he's in over his head and have Undertaker be greeted by the sweet embrace of Sister Abigail.

  173. I wish you were right, but I feel like Hart Killer is probably correct. Building him up to feed him to the old fart.

    ReplyDelete
  174. I agree. Why break up the Wyatts? They still never really gave an explanation.

  175. He liked that movie?!

    ReplyDelete
  176. He WORSHIPS Arnold. Doesn't just think he isn't a bad actor... he thinks he is the GOAT. Seriously.

  177. The movie is a piece of garbage.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Ah really? Hayes must have had some dirt on Snr. He was bloody awful.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Nor should he.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Huh...actually, I'm not surprised. This is Caliber we're talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  181. That's shocking. He can't really act at all. I figured an esteemed movie buff would at least know that much.

    ReplyDelete
  182. I mean everyone is entitled to their opinion... but he won't even acknowledge that his opinion is a pretty... well unconventional one. He also thinks Blink 182 is a revolutionary band and the GOAT.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Agreed, but there's no real benefit for Wyatt. If he wins, "yay, we beat up an old man!" (thanks Johnny Storm!) If he loses, he jobs to Ben Gay Taker. The only hope is that the torch is passed SOMEhow.

  184. Watched T2 last night. I sure do love that movie.

    ReplyDelete
  185. Ah, Bayou Billy...the comic book ads made you seem so cool...but your game was not so cool...

    ReplyDelete
  186. I think you are underestimating the benefit of beating the Undertaker.

    ReplyDelete
  187. I'd be fine with him beating Undertaker somewhere other than Wrestlemania... but the Brock loss needs to be the only one. Honestly he shouldn't wrestle at Wrestlemania again.

    ReplyDelete
  188. He's had a proper run of duds now hasn't he?

    ReplyDelete
  189. That's the lasting legacy of that game.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I feel these Bulldogs/Dream Team matches should be better than they are.

    ReplyDelete
  191. Dammit Caliber. I love blink 182 and think they are ONE OF the most influential bands of the passed 20 years. GOAT, no no not even close. But Arnold's best acting job was playing a robot, with no feelings. Even Cartman did a good job as Awesome-O.

    ReplyDelete
  192. Locking Warrior in the casket. Seems cartoony then and now, but a little kid would probably find that terrifying. Now? Holograms.

    ReplyDelete
  193. Indeed. The Last Stand wasn't too bad as it was a fun little movie. If Terminator Genisys sucks/bombs, I can't see studios giving Arnold that many more chances to turn it around.

    ReplyDelete
  194. WHATEVARH!

  195. Maybe you should stop being a little girl?

    ReplyDelete
  196. Last Stand was decent fun. Didn't expect to enjoy it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  197. I remember the opening of that game had a voice that said "The Adventures of #$%#%$illy$#@#" because 'Bayou Billy was totally distorted for some reason.
