    Ah, a fresh topic!

  2. I hope we get a special Balor entrance tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  3. We better or I want a refund for my free Network month!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I was thinking the same thing.

    ReplyDelete
  5. NXT! "The Americans"! "Sunny," "Workaholics," "Man Seeking Woman," AND "SVU" doing an episode on Gamergate! Dontcha dare miss it!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Enjoy NXT live, you lucky bastards. I'll catch up tomorrow. I sincerely hope it is awesome and that Kevin Dunn has nothing to do with it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. "Mean" Dean AndrewsFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:25 PM

    Lucha, underground, is very high risk. So many ceilings to crack your head open during a high risk top rope move.

    ReplyDelete
  8. So is Neville jobbing on his way out?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Aren't they making him a pirate or something?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I hope it's carnage..he looks awesone

    ReplyDelete
  11. Not even the worst idea I've heard recently. I heard they were possibly going to make Kalisto a gay hair stylist. How long will they go before including Darren Young in that somehow?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Extant1979 - Mr. Cable AccessFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:30 PM

    Huh?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Just watching royal rumble 01. What the hell was the chyna neck injury angle about? Did it lead anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Is it perhaps that at this juncture, the TV deal and the revenue from tickets to the bigger Raw arenas, is the only thing really keeping them even approaching liquid? Could they afford to go from 17,000 tickets for Raw to 3,000? I think they could swing it for a few nights a year, but that might be part of the thought.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Mighty Mouse character, Vince sabotaging HHH.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hmmm, Cena's Greatest Rivalries. Could be interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  17. ORTON! EDGE! And nobody else, stop asking!

    ReplyDelete
  18. The most interesting thing BG said about steroids. That he would do it all again because it gives you such a leg up in THIS BUSINESS.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Man, look at all those giant Daniel Bryan-loving nerds lined up outside.

    ReplyDelete
  20. FREE RILEY sign

    ReplyDelete
  21. Byron is FIRED UP tonight! They must have upgraded his programming.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like how the WWE is trying to make the feds trying to nail Vince for steroid distribution just a bullshit law suit Billy Graham filed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Orton, Edge, Brock, HHH/Authority, JBL, Rock...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:34 PM

    I read part of his book and he said the same thing. One of these days I have to get a hold of a copy and read the whole thing, the little bit I saw was pretty good. He absolutely buries Mil Mascaras.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Renee and Corey Graves...is there something going on there?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ugh. Still can't believe they jobbed Corbin to Mighty Mouse.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If you're going to have Albert / Tensai be a supposed professional commentator, shouldn't he at least drop the idiotic facial studs?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my god is there anything more disgusting than watching Vince play the victim card? This is why I have a tough time with these docs. I really thought the ones about the old school guys would have a minimal amount of this self serving crap but I guess not.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Shitty woman-hating assholes getting their death threat on because girls play games too. There's some cheap explanation about ethics in gaming journalism, but it's nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Half of the world buries Mil Mascaras.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Balor looks vaguely like Tom Hardy in those sit down interview clips.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wanna see Devitt/Bálor doing the Bloody Sunday.

    ReplyDelete
  33. He's a good looking guy. Looks a star.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wonder if Neville is wearing an authentic Baracuta Harrington jacket uh I mean those guys sure can fight!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like how both guys in the #1 contender's match have satellite dish ears.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Really good looking, #nohomo.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The whole thing is stupid on both sides. If you care about your mental capacity and time, you'll avoid this subject altogether.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:39 PM

    On a related note, why do people get those things that stretch out their earlobes? Don't they realize that shit is permanent? What if you want to get a decent job one day? See also: tats you can't cover with a collared shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  39. So weird that El Generico and Kevin Steen are main eventing a WWE show that also has PAC, KENTA, and Prince Devitt.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Something I noticed: the NXT guys dress better out of the ring than the WWE guys.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I mean, isn't Daniel Bryan essentially a Mighty Mouse character? Without the obviousness, of course, but maybe that's what they're going for. Just a small guy with a big heart.

    ReplyDelete
  42. They're not living out of a suitcase.

    ReplyDelete
  43. They act like nortmal people. Women are treated nicely also.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:40 PM

    And the other half don't know who he is. NO ONE likes that guy.

    ReplyDelete
  45. HHH's fault.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've never understood facial piercings in general. What are you trying to prove?

    ReplyDelete
  47. A friend of mine has neck tattoos and she has gotten a couple of jobs as a marketer and social media manager.

    ReplyDelete
  48. HAHA you've been stuck with that tat-removal commercial too, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Or that Neville is short and has big ears.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Good point, but I've seen the cut of Cena's suits.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Calling them by their indy names, what a smark.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Don't let the Titty Master find out!

    ReplyDelete
  53. The preshows with the MMA-style interviews with the wrestlers are cool. I love the video packages at the WWE level, but the guys don't talk enough during them.


    Kevin Owens looks like a blackjack dealer in that suit.

    ReplyDelete
  54. So guys are making death threats to girls who play just because they're playing? That's insane.

    ReplyDelete
  55. My video froze but I get the audio. ALL FOR $9.99!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Itami needs to bust a GTS soon, and some of his crazy japanese moves.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Show of hands: who's way more excited for tonight's NXT special than they are for Wrestlemania? For me it's not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Wait, Itami/Breeze is new news?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Nice, Breeze and Itami. Cool, never seen Itami wrestle, should be good!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Graves works way better announcing.

    ReplyDelete
  61. WWE style holds Itami back so far.

    ReplyDelete
  62. This is probably why there's no Magnum biopic - nothing to do with Vince!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Right now, yeah, though it's tempered by being all excited for the Rumble, and look how THAT turned out.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:43 PM

    I had a spike below my lower lip when I was like 19 or so, damned if I can remember why. But at least that heals.

    The septum piercing on a chick is the most unattractive thing I've ever seen, reminds me of a cow.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Don't know about Mania, but definitely more excited for NXT than Fast Lane.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Albert might actually be a decent broadcaster.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:44 PM

    Really? Are they at least nice looking tats?

    ReplyDelete
  68. Too soon to tell about Mania. But this card is way more exciting than Fastlane

    ReplyDelete
  69. So who is he anyway? His debut was the last takeover, right?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Huh, so the announcers are explaining why the stips favor Bull. This is dumb. Where are the catchphrases?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Byron reminds me of Coach-lite. I'd legit LOL if he did the Charleston though.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Graves is the tattoed guy, he retired.


    Kevin Owens is the former ROH star Kevin Steen, one of the best heels of the indy circuit.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Vince watching NXT with Dunn


    -Where are the dancing negroes? Who had the idea of giving women 10 to 15 minute matches


    Hideo Itami-midget
    Sami Zayn- Midget
    Kevin Owens- HE'S FAT
    Baron Corbin- Kevin... I think I'm in love.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:46 PM

    Haven't seen it, but I just think the whole idea of tattoos is dumb.

    716 representing, motherfuckers!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Unless they go with a straight Brock/Bryan match at 'Mania I can't imagine any match on that card coming close to Balor/Neville and Zayn/Owens. There's certainly no possible match-ups where I'll be as emotionally invested in the outcome.

    ReplyDelete
  76. People might disagree, but I would bang Charlotte with no hesitation.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yeah, I knew which one he is, but was he an in ring talent? Just curious, been out of the loop for a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  78. He had a run in NXT as a competitor but kept getting concussions so had to retire.

    ReplyDelete
  79. No disagreement here.

    ReplyDelete
  80. People complain about her physique.

    ReplyDelete
  81. New site is up and running. My first 3 Lucha Underground posts are up. Disqus commenting is enabled. Tune in tomorrow for Danimal's Dangerous Daily Update and a review of tonight's NXT show. Thanks for all your support.

    DANIMALCROSSING.com

    ReplyDelete
  82. Dark match going on, Enzo & Cass vs The Vaudvillains

    ReplyDelete
  83. Shit, I've thought of a cow. I have a friend that has a septum piercing, I'm probably gonna moo at her next time I see her.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Albert is not bad, actually. He could be a decent replacement for JBL MAGGLE!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Charlotte is seriously a top ten, maybe top five worker in WWE/NXT right now.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I'm not attracted to her face but she could arch her back in such a way that I didn't have to see it. #sex #objectification

    ReplyDelete
  87. Why they don't push Enzo & Cass for the tag belts.

    ReplyDelete
  88. She's definitely attractive, but #4 in that ring tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Top Ten definitely.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Cool for you, bummer for us, LOVE the Vaudvillians.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    I think she's cute, I mean, I see the resemblance, but it's not like she looks like a man or anything. We're not talking about Janet Jackson here. And the gymnastics shit is an instant turn on.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Charlotte has extremely white teeth.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I just hope she doesn't ask me for money.

    ReplyDelete
  94. IT'S NOT A RANDOM DRAW 25% HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT NERD RAAAGE, lol

    ReplyDelete
  95. Yeah, factoring in NXT guys drops her out of top 5. She's still only a couple years into her career, which is incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:50 PM

    Who's the one next to her in the promo photo?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Bayley is hotter than Charlotte.....come on now.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:50 PM

    I just tuned into the Pre-Show; already, they're treating this shit as being important.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Charlotte is nervous, but it feels like she is speaking. I'll take nervous and not picture-perfect but real over stilted and rehearsed.

    ReplyDelete
  100. The only flaw NXT has so far is the tag division.

    ReplyDelete
  101. They are both good on the mic but not quite there in the ring yet.

    ReplyDelete
  102. It boggles my mind that on Raw, they thought it was a good idea to job Charlotte in her first match on that show. IN Charlotte, of all places.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:51 PM

    They were focused more on the wrestling than they were characters or gimmicks, so it felt real and meaningful. A big improvement over whatever dumpstersluts they trod out on Monday night to waste five minutes of our time.

    ReplyDelete
  104. It's a bit more than that, but that's the root of it.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Not the smoothest interview time for Charlotte, but hey. Better than anything David ever did.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I was about to get to get into that point. She has a weird looking face, but that ass makes up for it. I guess it's a wash?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Is she the Kurt Angle of the women's division in terms of how quick she "got it"? (Maybe Orton, since Kurt gets extra credit for not having grown up in wrestling.)

    ReplyDelete
  108. My friend is appearing at the NXT show tonight. His wrestling name is ERA. No clue what he's doing tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Booking Flairs horribly in Flair Country is a time honored tradition!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I think Angle is a fair comparison.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Byron out talking to the people, I like this. Also NXT fans are better-spoken than the average WWE mutant.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Ended up pretty much a squash, but Enzo and Cass sure got the crowd pumped and the best they've looked in the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  113. So who wins the Title match tonight? And who do you WANT to win? I'm tipping Owens and after his awesome promo, I kind of want to see him take it. Harsh for Sami to have such a short run but he's great in chase mode so it shouldn't hurt him too much.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    I like her, would totally bang.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I think Kevin Owens squashes Sami in the same vein as Lesnar/Cena at Summerslam.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I hope he's not Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz's son.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    Prediction: Sami Zayn retains by the skin of his teeth, leading to a brutal climax at the next special with Owens tormenting him for the next eight weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  118. So I should be the bearded geek in the lower left of your screens this row back, front row of bleachers in a bright blue lightning hat.

    ReplyDelete
  119. YOU CAME BACK FOR ME! YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I sense a Double DQ finish, sets up a street fight at the next event.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    I just watched Sami chase the title for months. Now I want to see him overcome the odds, albeit in such a way as to make a rematch needed.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Doubt it. He's cuban

    ReplyDelete
  123. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    I hate cop-out non-finishes, but if it gives us great storytelling I can abide.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Cubans tend to be 2 seam and curve pitchers.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Or Zayn pins Owens, but his foot was on the rope. The ref didn't saw, so he asks for another match.

    ReplyDelete
  126. That's fair. No matter the result, I trust the booking to be good enough to have both guys not be hurt and to continue the feud (even though Balor will likely be in line for the next title shot).

    ReplyDelete
  127. NWA style promo, good job NXT.

    ReplyDelete
  128. What's up Gents and Gents? Should be a fun show.

    ReplyDelete
  129. So how do you blow off the #1 contenders match? Lame DQ?

    ReplyDelete
  130. He got WEAK! He bred his wife and he got WEAK!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:56 PM

    Yeah, I'm betting on some kind of non-finish, maybe even a Broadway, which is of the few times I'd support that finish. I wouldn't expect a classic though, just because they need to save some for the rematch.

    ReplyDelete
  132. DANIMALCROSSING.com

    ReplyDelete
  133. Weird to see a feud focused around the belt. I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  134. They are, actually. All of her stuff is well done.

    ReplyDelete
  135. "I want the title because it means more money and a better life for my family."



    What is this shit.

    ReplyDelete
  136. The WWE as a whole is getting smaller, triple h knows a majority of big men can't work.

    ReplyDelete
  137. It's just weird to see monster booking on him.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I know, right? He should have laughed at the belt and then done a fart sound with his armpit.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Hey WWE made news twice this week. Dong shots and stifling what a gay employee believes.


    #MAINSTREAM

    ReplyDelete
  140. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:58 PM

    This shit is a mindfuck compared to the main roster.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:58 PM

    General rule is subtract 3" from whatever he's listed as.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Wait, who would disagree? She has the benefit of not looking a single loving thing like her father.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Corey Graves looks like a rejected Calvin Klein model.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Is that a threat?

    ReplyDelete
  145. No such thing as bad press ...

    ReplyDelete
  146. I can't recall seeing a Sayn/Owens match on the indies that wasn't damn good.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Corey Graves looks like he's in Killswitch Engage and he just won enough money on the Price Is Right to buy a snazzy suit.

    ReplyDelete
  148. LAME. Why would the heel have a motivation?

    ReplyDelete
  149. "Is that gonna put food on Kevin Owens's table?"


    BETTER BE A LOT OF FOOD!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Ask? If Ric taught her anything, it's to wait until you're passed out and rifle through your wallet and belongings.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Vince may not know the difference between Steve Lombardi and a Cuban.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Not digging Renee's haircut

    ReplyDelete
  153. Why are the announcers talking about the match and not making lame jokes?

    ReplyDelete
  154. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    Tats are definitely not my thing, but I can appreciate ones that are well done.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Corey Graves looks like Vanilla Ice after a bad acid trip.

    ReplyDelete
  156. I'd still hit it.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Like I said - I thought he was the drummer from blink 182

    ReplyDelete
  158. Can't find a stream :(


    Damn Euros!

    ReplyDelete
  159. Tensai looks ridiculous with the studs under his lip.

    ReplyDelete
  160. 2-1 heel isn't a good makeup for the talkers.

    ReplyDelete
  161. They're not having fun, Maggle!

    ReplyDelete
  162. Oh no, I still find her attractive. Just not digging the hair.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Was just about to post this. She still looks good but her hair looks poverty.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Also, apropos of nothing, I hate that 90% of commercials on TV these days are ads for cancer hospitals.


    I'm enough of a hypochondriac as it is without people bringing up how they went in to get a cough looked at and found they had "little seeds of cancer" all over their body.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Holy shit, that video package sold me on Zayn and Owens and I'll barely watched NXT.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I bet Kevin Dunn took one look around the locker room and put in an emergency call to Mason Ryan.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Why are the fans still outside?

    ReplyDelete
  168. I really wish she would stop talking.

    ReplyDelete
  169. "SOMEBODY GET ME FAUX-TISTA!"

    ReplyDelete
  170. Adam "Colorado" CurryFebruary 11, 2015 at 6:01 PM

    Oh, it will be good. But it's like the first time you bang a broad, you don't pull out all your tricks right away.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Future of wrestling is in good hands....until that future winds up in Vince and Dunn's capable hands.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Those aren't allowed in

    ReplyDelete
  173. It's good to know that WWE can still do good video packages.


    Speaking of which, even with all the stupid Higher Power shit, the video package for the Austin/McMahons ladder match got me so hyped to watch that match.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Why do only the minority divas get last names?

    ReplyDelete
  175. Masked Man's got a single tear running down his cheek not being a pull quote in that package.

    ReplyDelete
  176. God, Sami's voice breaking in that promo was fucking MONEY. Best babyface in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  177. "Hey John, we need you down at NXT, those guys don't know how to work. Bring Orton and Reigns with you."

    ReplyDelete
  178. Affirmative Action.

    ReplyDelete
  179. *COF COF* Daniel Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  180. Been watching a lot of Kenta's stuff online lately. Kind of bummed he's being kinda sorta wasted on NXT, though that match with Balor the other night was great.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I think he finally hits the GTS tonight...

    ReplyDelete
  182. Can Hideo break his streak of disappointing matches tonight? We shall find out.

    ReplyDelete
  183. I think Zayn's better. Bryan is great thouugh, obviously.

    ReplyDelete
  184. Biff Kensington Has a PosseFebruary 11, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    Itami's theme is badass. I hope he can put it together in the ring.

    ReplyDelete
  185. Love Hideo's Scorpion gear.
