  5. Jim Duggan is 23-1 against Steve Austin lifetime.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I like how Billy was a heel and Bart wasn't. Interesting dynamic neither guy could pull off.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Vince is gloriously patronizing right now. They're having so much fun with this.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Barbarian was 0-33 against Big Boss Man.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I really, really dislike Owen's little yellow circles.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The Gunns look like they're wearing Uggs.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This is a match that happened in 2014: Steiner Brothers vs Faces of Fear vs Rock N Roll Express vs George South and Tom Prichard

    ReplyDelete
  12. "I am the 1 in 23 and 1!"

    ReplyDelete
  13. Stacked Southern States Wrestling card!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Owen and Davey are two guys whose looks were improved with short hair.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It was WrestleCade 2014. Actually not that bad of a looking card. http://www.cagematch.net/?id=1&nr=117887

    ReplyDelete
  16. It was actually an eight man tag, not a four-way tag.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lol @ Sunny winking at the camera after Kings comment. They do have sound back there dammit!

    ReplyDelete
  18. One two three I gotta go pee

    ReplyDelete
  19. Four five six remember to shake out yo dick

    ReplyDelete
  20. The long hair fit obnoxious troll Owen while short hair fit the more serious minded Owen.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yeah, obnoxious troll Owen looked jobberrific but it fit his character.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm thinking Bulldog badly mistimed that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Seven eight nine wear undies under your Calvin Kleins.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Pretty shrewd teamwork by them. And I love Owen's music.

    ReplyDelete
  25. ThebrazilianpsychoFebruary 7, 2015 at 5:16 PM

    Seven eight nine, don't forget the close the ziper.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Way underrated tag team.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It looked a lot better on the replay, at least.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They cut out the first thirty second of him hiding lol.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I guess that rhymes in Portuguese?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just finished listening to Whoomp There It Is. It still bangs, but I never want to see it mentioned on Raw ever again

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, Jacques worked with Bret A LOT. Cagematch says 152 times. I'm sure the real number is bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  32. An easy way to improve RAW: more Cabbage Patching.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Only if Salt N Pepa guest host

    ReplyDelete
  34. Mentioning Vince as owner!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. "Good catch, Vince!" Dude has been fucking glorious tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The good old days when they kept it simple

    ReplyDelete
  37. I think Diesel did it first.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Al Bundy, if he were a cat:

    ReplyDelete
  39. Man those Ahmed/Farooq exchanges must've needed subtitles.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I goof on Ahmed speaking a lot, but I legit have no idea what he just said.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't think Wrestlemania XI was that big a hit.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Post-sex Perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Just did some shaved sirloin steak sandwiches on some bakery knots. Heaven.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Marc Mero still looks too much like Johnny B. Badd right now.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Which one are we doing now, and how far in?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Holy crap! We need bickering face interviewee/heel interviewer segments again!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Buried Alive 44:53

    ReplyDelete
  48. Mero's pyro is a patio door with sparklers attached.

    ReplyDelete
  49. ThebrazilianpsychoFebruary 7, 2015 at 5:26 PM

    Got Saints Row: The Third, any good?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Does this includes Hart Foundation v. Rougeau Brothers tags?-

    ReplyDelete
  51. Goddammit I hate Goldust's outfit. I thought he'd fix it after a month like he did his stupid black ears!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Just got my first actual commercial on the WWE Network... and it was for Hulu.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Whoa, early sighting of the bald dude and his wife that are always at the front trow of PPVs

    ReplyDelete
  54. Mr. Perfect said ass like a dozen times.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Not only is Goldust's attire design incredibly bad looking, it looks it's made out of a painters tarp.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Vintage SNL is the Patrick Swayze episode

    ReplyDelete
  57. Well that makes me sad. Both Chippendale auditioners are dead.

    ReplyDelete
  58. We just had spaghetti with brown butter and mizathra cheese.

    ReplyDelete
  59. In neon windbreakers? If so, those are BJ Whitmer's parents.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I know Perfect turns on Mero and sides with Triple H... but is that the next night on RAW?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Waiting for the lady to feed and put away her chickens and horses. Then, it's sushi time! Until then, Dying Light.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Like wrestling, the death toll is far too high in the male stripper industry

    ReplyDelete
  63. No idea. I completely missed late 95-mid 98.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Sable certainly has a broad spectrum. As far as wrestlers go... could there be any two further apart than Johnny B Badd and Brock Lesnar?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Yeah, fun game. I always think of it as the Always Sunny to GTA's Seinfeld: same kinda premise but way more off the fucking rails

    ReplyDelete
  66. Perfect was doing this thing were he'd come out and steal Triple H's valet.

    ReplyDelete
  67. "His microphone works fine!"

    ReplyDelete
  68. Goldust stopping to troll the fans in the middle of matches was always great.

    ReplyDelete
  69. "I am gonna personally stick my tongue down each and everyone of your throats!"

    That's some quality heeling!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Never played it, but I did buy Saints Row 4. GTA on some REALLY GOOD shit is my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  71. '96 GOLDDUST!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Possibly the worst outfit ever.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Those two dudes in the front row are jackasses. They seem like every loser odd couple you see in a generic comedy.

    ReplyDelete
  74. One of these things is NOT like the others.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Also, that promotion name is glorious.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Didn't Mr. Perfect leave shortly after this?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Between Arrow, Flash, and being unable to put down Injustice since I've started really getting into it, DC has become like pro wrestling. As long as I cherry-pick the good stuff and avoid the rest, I don't feel as burned on the bad shit from the companies as everyone else.


    But goddamn, I feel bad for letting Injustice rot on my shelf for a year while clearing out some of my gaming backlog, it's so much fun, just so much to do even in single-player and I enjoy all the little touches in battle like the matchup-specific mid-match quotes.


    Superman: "Arrows?! Against ME?!"
    Green Arrow: "Arrows! Against you!"


    Sinestro: "You fight with a toy!"
    Green Arrow: "You fight with jewelry!"

    ReplyDelete
  78. The mic work in the middle of the match... loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Everybody giving Ollie shit.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Looking forward to Bayless' ROH review. I was at DBD and loved it

    ReplyDelete
  81. I swear Mr. Perfect is the only guy who could get away with those blue suits.

    ReplyDelete
  82. fake Diesel! where's Daniel Bryan to fight him?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Fake Razor looks like some dude they picked up off the street and tossed some purple garments at.

    ReplyDelete
  84. That unfortunately doesn't translate to brown ones.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love playing as the TV Arrow version where they didn't give any new lines, so everyone still treats Serious TV Arrow as the swashbuckling one and he has to give those quips in his Batmanish voice.


    Opponent: "Don't you ever shut up?!"
    Arrow: "Every other Tuesday!"

    ReplyDelete
  86. YES... Sid vs Vader!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Yes. Vince blew his deal with Lloyds of London and he got poised and went to WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love this "who has the best powerbomb" promo. Even if the match sucks, great way to set up a feud. Take note, WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I always thought Vader's powerbomb was shit.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Sid's too popular! Turn him heel!!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Junior High...

    ReplyDelete
  92. Crowd's just nuts for Sid... constant noise.

    ReplyDelete
  93. For all the shit Triple H gets... he really is, objectively, the greatest of all time. I dare you, name a wrestler better than him.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I'm watching independence day on SyFy at my parents house.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 7, 2015 at 5:44 PM

    Shawn Michaels.
    Ric Flair.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 7, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    El Dandy!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I don't think I've ever hated a superheroes personality as much as Ollie. He's a cross between the guy who just learned politics in college and the condescending hippie guidance counselor.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Nuh-uh.
    Impossible.
    Ain't no way.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Burt Lancaster.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Vader's music is awesome. That Boy Meets World episode happened around this time, too!

    ReplyDelete
  103. This is a good bit!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Close, but no cigar.

    ReplyDelete
  105. sorry Rock, Shawn is not winning the best look tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  106. This is what us folk call a "hit".

    ReplyDelete
  107. Finishing off 1990 with Starrcade. One more show and no more Black Scorpion.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Ben from Parks on Boy Meets World always makes me double take.

    ReplyDelete
  109. High school. (He would have been 15)

    ReplyDelete
  110. http://media.giphy.com/media/cUENbkNb804U0/giphy.gif

    ReplyDelete
  111. But nobody is better than as El Dandy!

    ReplyDelete
  112. The Injustice story is actually pretty good. You can watch the cutscenes and it comes off as an animated movie.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Corny' looking pretty fly tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I really wish Sid wasn't such a headcase... he could have been one of the all time greats.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Scientists have proven that Triple H as El Dandy is better than El Dandy.

    ReplyDelete
  116. http://media.giphy.com/media/yr2qSstSRwTug/giphy.gif

    ReplyDelete
  117. He just works better as a big mean heel!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 7, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    I honestly believe that we will look back on 2014 as being worse than 1995. At least by the end of 1995, there was some modicum of hope for the future with Bret Hart's title win. If anything, 2014 did more to extinguish hope than any other year I've seen in the WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Seriously... just LOOK at Sid.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Sid was such a believable character.

    ReplyDelete
  121. You have to let a year that's just ended to kind of sit there for a while. 1995 WWF is like taking Nyquil... and then eating laxatives.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  123. Nope. Things always seem worse when they're happening. In a couple years we'll think it was but not the worst ever.

    ReplyDelete

  125. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 7, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    1995 has some hidden gems in it that lessen the blow of the booking decisions (not that it helps all that much). There was some good work to be found in spots, which I think supplants 2014 because the repetition killed interest for much of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  126. ain't he a sight to see?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Mid-90s Goldust had no idea about carbs.

    ReplyDelete
  128. There's a lot of hidden gems in 14 we'll appreciate later.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Why in God's name did they think it was a good idea to turn Sid heel?

    ReplyDelete
  130. JIMMY NAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW

    ReplyDelete
  132. At least for the past year, there was at least an average of one match per week that was worth watching. 1995 stunk to high heaven.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yeah, I'm a couple of chapters in but I'm always a fan of Netherrealm's story modes and single-player content. It's hard to stick with it because I keep going back to the STAR Labs Missions and trying to three-star them all.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Because that's the story Vince wanted to tell?

    ReplyDelete
  135. 2014 started off great and the Survivor Series match was a glimmer of hope, too. 1995 was bad the whole way through.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Or cutting down on the booze.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Here's Canek slamming Yokozuna.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRAzaYB5eoU

    ReplyDelete
  138. Shawn looks like he's going to a coffee shop for a poetry slam after the show.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Here's Canek slamming Andre the Giant.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awjRZFzeJw4

    ReplyDelete
  140. Hancock. What a dick.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Yeah. Even WrestleMania sucked dick.

    ReplyDelete
  142. And some terrifying wardrobe choices.

    ReplyDelete
  143. So... the Battle of the Powerbombs... ends in a chokeslam...

    ReplyDelete
  144. And it did give us one of the best Manias ever.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I just finished Snowpiercer. It's a blast.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Hall of Fame...in November?

    ReplyDelete
  147. ... and pretty easy to tell that Shawn is outclassed in this matchup.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Felt like watching it tonight myself

    ReplyDelete
  149. Paul Heyman's take on the Brian Williams controversy is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  150. I'm confused as to at what point Rock had anything to do with Shawn and Sid? The fuck are y'all watching?

    ReplyDelete
  151. If a Mexican could do it, then Triple H could. Hell, I could.

    ReplyDelete
  152. They didn't renew it until 2004 to be a part of WM weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I'm going to guess an In Your House.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I'm counting just past WM. My wrestling calender starts at the day after.

    Top of my head I've got:

    Survivir Series main event
    Shield vs Evolution
    Cena vs Brock
    Lumberjack match

    ReplyDelete
  155. "GO ASK YOUR QUESTION, LITTLE MAN!"

    ReplyDelete
  156. Also, I loved the Shield vs. Evolution matches.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Time stamp please

    ReplyDelete
  158. Shawn was paranoid... and Vince was delusional. He couldn't fathom how anyone could hate Shawn Michaels...

    ReplyDelete
  159. Danny Johnson and Troy Montour is apparently the best WCW could do for Canadian wrestlers.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Vince cutting off Dok for no reason...

    ReplyDelete
  161. I think I'm ROCK!

    ReplyDelete
  162. Link dat shit nigguh

    ReplyDelete
  163. The Breaking News section of WWE Network.

    ReplyDelete
  164. WHAT IS YOUR QUESTION LITTLE MAN!?

    ReplyDelete
  165. Oh, Sid... we're live, pal.

    ReplyDelete
  166. The Alison Pill scene is batshit insane and awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Calling him Shelton was the really weird part.

    ReplyDelete
  168. It's my theory that Vince wanted to be Shawn Michaels... so it goes far beyond his love of another man... it's his own narcissism.

    ReplyDelete
  169. "Deny the lie to the bitter end!" - Paul Heyman

    ReplyDelete
  170. The WWF used some cool music scores for their big builds in 96 and 97.

    ReplyDelete
  171. http://widescreen.mobi/wp-content/uploads/burt-lancaster-pictures-3.jpg

    ReplyDelete
  172. These video package team need raises.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Even today they're great.

    ReplyDelete
  174. All the narrated stuff with stock music seems fantastic. They used to do so much with so little. Now they have everything and can't do shit.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Not doubting you on this one

    ReplyDelete
  176. For all the things lacking quality today, the video packages aren't one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  177. HHH's big nose > Lancaster's

    ReplyDelete
  178. 2014 had some great PPV events if nothing else.
