Another UFC show. I recognize 7 outta the 22 fighters which is actually above average for Uncle Dana's weekly tomato-cage scuffles.
I just don't get dogs. They're loud, they can't shit indoors... I'm sorry, I just don't get it.
Cat Zingano will KO Ronda Rousey tonight.
I don't get owning animals period. Like, at least a baby will grow up and eventually become something that can fend for itself and go out into the world. A dog will need as much human assistance at 1 year old as it will at 15 years old.
Had no idea Alfred Hayes was still doing stuff for WWE as late as 94.
Rewatched Nakamura/Ibushi from Wrestle Kingdom 9. Such a great match, they have insane chemistry with each other. If AXS gets another season of NJPW matches, I'd love to see Mauro and Josh call that one.
I can see that. I don't see why in hell anyone would want kids either, but I get the point.Fish are the dumbest pet to me. At least with any other pet you can interact with them, but fish are totally useless
Believe me, I'm not advocating for kids either. The world is a freaking mess and the stress of having to be responsible for another human being besides myself is nightmare inducing.
On the Saturday night after I get let go, I'm sitting at home, waiting for my fiancee to make dinner while watching Buffy. I think I'm officially old and lame.
When did signs become a big thing...was it the Attitude Era? I'm watching my way through Wrestlemania, and I'm up to 3. You maybe see a sign here and there, but it's mostly none.
Sounds pretty good to me.
Yeah the attitude era. Wrestlemania 14 everyone has a sign.
Watching Smackdown via Hulu.We repackaged Fandango! Once a ballroom dancer, now a...tango dancer?...goddammit...
Once dinner is ready, I'll be switching over to House of Cards.
Shit. I once made signs for a house show.
Yeah, 14 is crazy...it's just a sea of signs.
And they took away the best part about him, too, with his theme music. The only thing the guy had going for him. They may as well release him now.
Watched Luger's 93 Timeline earlier. It was actually pretty good.
Started to watch that. They killed a dog like, 5 mins into the first episode. I was out.
I should have a 8 year old, fortunately it didn't happen (I guess, I don't want to say that a woman having is miscarriage is a good thing but it's really for the better), and I couldn't imagine having a child. My niece is already the most smartass little kid you've ever seen. Then again, my kid would have much better parents. Still, it wouldn't be good.
WWE should steal the timeline idea for the Network.
LOL Kinda liking Curtis Axel's Rumble schtick.
I brought a sign to Summer Slam 1990 even though I was in the nosebleed section.
This would have been at the LA Sports Arena, say...1988?
They really needed to let you know that Frank Underwood was a heel.
Yeah, I've said that for awhile. Have Renee host it and you could actually play relevant clips and shit since that have all the footage.
Anything that adds more Renee screen time is right up my alley.
That Spacey's character?
lol at this Razor Ramon PSA about smoking.
Any coach who doesn't start or at least play his seniors on Senior Night is a giant douche.
and, they never named his top rope leg drop. #BallroomBlitz
Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. A bearded Murray incredibly resembles a bearded Michael Stipe.
They just really didn't want to do anything that could get the guy over.
Really feels like it.
Yeah, I know the guy is genius. It was just one of those things that happened and immediately turned me off.
The douche quotient is already at 100% as soon soon as you mentioned Seniors Night.
This Vince/Johnny Polo announcing combo is hilarious with hindsight.
Oh, I totally get that. Not trying to convince you to change your mind. If it turns you off, it turns you off.
Lately it feels like "getting guys over" isn't what they're about anymore. They just want a rotating cast of sitcom type characters to trade wins for the enjoyment of the "WWE Universe". In the old days guys like Ambrose and Wyatt would have had insane blood bath matches...now they just have wacky shenanigans and Ambrose squirts guys with mustard.
Yeah, I made the comment more than once that Wyatt/Ambrose felt like it belonged in midsouth cage matches.
Yeah, I know. I gotcha. :-)
Pretty sure if Sting had gone by THE VIGILANTE in TNA, they would have kicked WWE's ass.
MMMMM.... corn chowder.
Oh, God, yeah. Imagine Ambrose tearing it up with Terry Funk in the mid-80s. Or like Wyatt versus Dusty Rhodes.
uh...yeah...I'm going to avoid the temptation to be gross.
Based on recent emails I fear that the rise of the Roman Empire might put the final nail in the coffin for Scott's wrestling fandom.
WOrks for me.
Sir Horatio Abercrombie Polo was Johnny Polo's great great great great great grandfather who sailed over on the Mayflower. The more the you know.
Can you blame him? My wrestling fandom is pretty much dead, imagine how he feels.
so, just wondering. Where do y'all come down on the quality of the match between Reigns/DBry? I dug it, and hated the fucking ending, though we knew it would happen. MOTY candidate? I kinda think not. Reigns put on a good showing, but I can't shake the feeling that DBry carried/called/choreographed the whole thing.
BE A ROSEBUD!Uh...be a clit?
"DBry carried/called/choreographed the whole thing."Why is this a bad thing? Or why is this seen as negative against Reigns?
I think it's a sled
Not really. having to type his Smark Rant and ending it with Reigns beating Brock with a shitty spear is going to have to be awful.
I thought **** very very good match. Just hated the ending
I know, I know. Not Hoss approved.
I'm not saying it's a negative against Reigns. I said he put on a good showing. But, it just still bugs me that a guy who has main evented exactly one PPV is going to win it all at WM. It falls under the category of not paying his dues. This match certainly helps, but he just ain't there yet to me. Of course, I admit to being a DBry mark.
So wait....now he's....Fann.......Tannnn.......Gooooooooooo?
Decent match, don't have an issue with the ending. If Roman is going to be the guy, as much as I should think he's not, than make him the guy and have him win. This will totally bomb, but if that's the plan than just do it.
What season? I'm on 6 right now?
Wow - Rangers/Flyers on NBC.
It was entertaining. I don't really do ratings, but 4 feels just a bit high somehow.
Did you feel the same way about Batista?
Not paying his dues and being carried by Bryan to a great match are not the same things.
Was there ever a face or heel that was less over than reigns who main evented wm?
Not quite. That was more of a matter of "fuck that guy and his movie."
I hope they both fucking lose.
So my Wrestlemania Marathon continues into today, where I am watching the end of Wrestlemania XVI. This ending leaves such a sour taste in my mouth that I'm going to take a break after this and order the damn UFC Show. Triple H winning was not best for business here.
I never believed in paying your dues anyways. If you are over, you're going to get pushed.
Watched S3E1 just now. Switched to a House of Cards rewatch.
I'm talking about WM 21.
But it was great business for backlash
Eh. The real problem is that the match with him and Lesnar will be iffy at best, and watching DBry/Lesnar gets me al marky.
Was typing the same thing lol
I don't see him quitting. Him shitting on it is what brings him hits, it will take a lot more to make him give up.
Backlash is a fantastic show. It would've been a fantastic show if Rock went into it Champion, too.
Yeah, but he's not really over. NOt to that degree. He's being forced upon us.
Got the Coyotes/Bruins game on. Boston up 4-1 3:30 left in the game.
wasn't watchign at the time.
Tacos are going on tonight. That's about it to be honest. It's been a slooowww Saturday.
See, that's logical. And, when it tanks, what then?
He can just take an extended break and let everyone else do the heavy lifting for him. Certain threads will do gangbuster numbers with or without Scott.
Nah...not that so much as I had a really ugly first thought when I read your comment.
Slow Saturdays are the best Saturdays.
You let it play out and see where it goes.
Main event of extreme rules: reigns vs who? And I don't mean neidhart
Agreed. Yesterday it felt like I blinked at 8am and it was 3:30pm. Today just dragged ass.
Big Show of course.
Big show and kane?
I'm only 4 episodes into The Flash and I already like it better than Arrow.
Fuck all Metro teams.
Just started Bret Hart: The Dungeon Collection because I always need some Stampede.
Color me shocked that WWE got this thing with Stewart and Rollins right.
So, let's say you were creating a Hunger Games/Battle Royale type of TV show, where you throw ten wrestlers onto an island with weapons and while er is left alive at the end wins. You of course want it to be the best show possible, so which ten wrestlers do you choose to put on your island?
I will never understand how the most random of injuries always happens to baseball players.
Poor Mike Smith got pulled.
Like Chris Sale breaking his fucking foot unloading his truck?
First Raw anniversary show!
Jesus. How has no one else said this?
I was there when he beat Backlund for title and the crowd went completely apeshit. Don't know what happened after that.
Seems like they're in a legit arena for it too.
Or Clint Barmes with the deer meat or Sammy Sosa sneezing and so on and so forth.
Stewart seems to be a huge wrestling fan who really wants to help Rollins get over. Its not gonna be a repeat of Hogan vs Leno.
Played a bit of Civ. Looked at a project I'm working on, literally viewed it, for 10 mins or so.That's it.
You know what? I don't blame Leno for that. Dude was trying. Didn't really work, but he gave it an effort. But, your point is well made.
Well, weapons....I think Torrie Wilson is a fine shot (if 1999 Nitros taught me anything)....But seriously, throw in Savage, Hawk, Rude, Brock, Foley, Terry Funk, Brody, both Steiners (although I'm told family feuds don't draw)...and then throw in a pretty boy for your tenth (first victim)....Jeff Jarrett.
Yeah Leno did try. But he had no business having any offense on Hogan. I think they have made it clear so far that Stewart is no threat at all to Rollins. But its giving him tons of publicity (and not the bad dick showing kind.)
Can they use a red high heel shoe?
Watching the Leafs play right now is just kinda sad.
"A WRISTLOCK ON HULK HOGAN! JAY LENO HAS CLEARLY BEEN TAUGHT BY THE BEST!"
Steroids plus a sport that doesn't reward flexibility plus half the "athletes" being fat pigs.
Reigns vs. Chicago, no matter who the fuck the other guy is.
http://youtu.be/YXqp71q25y0Stewart on taker v Lesnar
Oh, it will tank, there's no question.Honestly, I would have have Rollins win at the Rumble, pinning Cena while Brock was being carried off. Then you do Rollins/Reigns at WM, with Brock/Bryan as the undercard match. Gives us Brock/Bryan and makes the main event title match make sense. Have Reigns winning clean, then have Rollins lose at Extreme Rules or whatever. Clean, they're 1-1. Do the Sheild 3 way with Rollins using the stupid fucking briefcase to do the Shield 3 way we want at the next PPV and get the title. Again, clean.
I would like to see fewer strikers in UFC.
That killed WCW lonnnnnnnnnnnng before any Fingerpoke of Doom.
It wasn't best in terms of storyline, but it was absolutely the right business decision, given they made a killing off two PPVs instead of one
YES! BREAK HIS FUCKING LEG!!!
One person I'm surprised never wrestled for wcw: Oliver platt from ready to rumble
Okay. 3 stars. Which is a problem, considering the other guy in the ring was friggin' Bryan.
People don't pay for submissions.
It's been sad since the lockout ended. The Clarkson trade is the best thing ever
As a Sox lifer, I was crushed reading about this.
Rickey Henderson once got frostbite after leaving an icepack on his foot overnight. David Cone went on the DL when his mother in law's dog bit his finger. I forgot the player but one punctured his eardrum with a Q-Tip. So yes, bizarre injuries.
Diesel got better pops than Samoan Diesel going into XI, I'd say, yeah.
$100 BET ON ROUSEY EARNS $14.81, ZINGANO PAYS $600Hmm.............
Michaels, Austin, and brock are all avid hunters so they're pretty good with ranged weapons. Road Dogg, Slaughter, Gunner, Cesaro, and Jesse Ventura are all veterans and presumably could handle some firearms. And i'll add in New Jack and MVP for the gang banger x-factor.
I get the idea, but I'd like more groundwork. Striking is better in boxing.
I like a good mix of both. I miss the days where fighters have specialties and they all weren't just mixed martial artists.
Favorite ever injury in any sport, as much as the player in question denies it - Smoltz ironing a shirt while wearing it.
John Smoltz said it was Gregg Olsen who did it. He has a whole passage in his book about how it wasn't him
Orton is a former vet and he could hit the rko from out of nowhere
Is this guy seriously saying he's finished? He's got actual skill and is fighting some dipshit KO artist.
I love submissions. It's what made me watch MMA instead of Boxing.
Jimmy King was less believable as World Champion than David Arquette.
I have the Doom entrance music stuck in my head.
Damn good tune.
Bet $100 on each.
One that is great about watching all these Raws in order is that they get me pumped for the PPVs instead of just mainlining them without context.
Why doesn't wwe put up the shitty wwe movies on the network?Do they have the rights to ready to rumble?
Likewise. Luckily the prognosis is pretty good and he'll only miss about 3 weeks.
I know he denies it, and it sucks that it got attached to him if he didn't do it, but fuck is that funny.
If not, I'm sure whoever has the streaming rights isn't desperately holding on to them. Ditto the producers of every Hogan movie.
Way to fuck us again, Potts. Let another worthless puncher eat up airtime.
THE CUT OUT "JIVE SOUL BRO!!!!!" FUCK THIS SHIT.
Nice. Only an $85 loss.
Right around this time in 94, The Steiners and Harts had a ***** classic. Or course it is nowhere on the network.
Joe Dimaggio missed 16 games after leaving a foot in a heating pad for WAY too long. Two lanced blisters, and first degree burns are no laughing matter... except to everyone else.
Also I never get tired of hearing Vince say "What A Maneuver" every 2 minutes on Raw.
DiCaprio announces he's going to star in a biopic on the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder in court. If he can't get more than a nomination on that one, it may be time to fuck models full time.
Bro, parlay the upsets. It worked last week.
I get them not springing the extra cash for the Dungeon Collection. Nobody bought that to hear "Jive Soul Bro."I'm stunned that match made the shortened Network cut, to be honest.
Of course, now I'm going to have Jive Soul Bro stuck in my head.
Have they uploaded any Coliseum Videos at all?
He got em; no he didn't
Orton would just find a way to escape the show, like say he has to use the bathroom and then never come back
Hey jerk, why do you cry about missing five-star matches when you can be watching Total Divas. WWE knows what you really want.
Irony: In the older days, athleticism was valued much more than muscles and size. Yet freak injuries happened even then.
No. I wish they would. Some hidden gems on those tapes.
What's he talkin' about laddddiessss.....? Maannnnnnnnnnnnnn.....
I've forgotten his name. Some jobber who let some unskilled jagoff beat him up without trying.
Dez Bryant to get franchise tagged.
Iris gets really annoying, IMO.Cisco keeps getting awesome.The relationship b/w Joe and Barry is nice.
It's really tough being him.
Now this is a fucking title belt: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B-7y3ltWoAAy7dT.jpg
I don't want to have most of them die, though.Kennedy's a must, the other nine are flexible. And whoever kills Kennedy gets an extra weapon.
What the fuck is this hick saying?
Even if they just released supercuts of matches involving Bret or Shawn would be stellar.
Under further review, it was determined that it wasn't a proper tag.
He should just go the Denzel/Will Smith route and play nothing but asshole villains from now on.
Love the IWGP title. It has the names of all the previous champions on the side plates.
I'm hoping Arrow picks back up when it comes back in March. Flash is fantastic and much better than S3 of Arrow, but I still prefer Arrow.
I was disappointed with my party's research people that all they dug up on old WWE broadcasts to use against Linda was "bark like a dog, Trish." I mean, I definitely see why, it's terrible, but there was so much more that got ignored - the "Jive Soul Bro" music video, Saba Simba, the Mexicools, Mr. Yamagouchi, the birth of Akeem...putting various comments Heenan and Ventura made during commentary on a loop...
I've always thought it was the anal ring.
New Japan Pro Wrestling: Great matches, great title belts.
Meanwhile, this is Lucha Underground's belt: https://40.media.tumblr.com/fc1c5b44256c991111d14b2c69f2e7a2/tumblr_ngs03ul0Tj1snhdpvo1_500.png
I think it was designed by Dave Millican.
Hey, better than losing $100 on Zingano alone.
The Aztec Coin belt.
But enough about AJ Styles
Needs more gay slaves dying of Aids.
I loved TNA's rip off of it. No idea why they got rid of that design.
