That's a big ass crowd
sunlight outside is throwin me off. Didn't think it was time to throw this up yet.
Root is so void of stuff to show they restarted the Mariners game, <3
What's weird is that I loved Bret/Shawn as I kid and was never bored by it. Now the older I get the less I like it. I feel like it should be the opposite.
Join me in WrestleMania X7, biyatches. 4 minutes in.
You start learning too much about how they were being dicks to each other in the ring and the match suffers mightily.
You been STOPPED and DROPPED by the Walls of Jericho!
It's not even that because that would probably enhance my enjoyment. I think as a kid I always bought into the idea of two legends WrestleMania one hour and loved it.
Wow the top shelf stuff, I would but I think I'm outtie in like 30 minutes max. Dude I'd potentially advise when you get to the main event, scrap it on the network and go to daily motion and watch the Austin commentary version of the main event. It's amazing (unless you've already seen it).
I'm just the opposite. First time I watched it I was bored to tears. Watched it again a few weeks ago and was into it like it was live.
"I can't belive they made Jericho Doink" - pilled up HBK
Where the fuck are the downvotes when you need them???
I can't explain. I would watch it every month or so for years and sit there glued. Now I can't watch it. Maybe I burned myself out on it by watching it so much...
I wish he'd do that with every match. Wish he could have been this way on tough enough instead of having to work a gimmick.
I swear if we were friends in real life I'd be beer bonging Taco Bell guac during this conversation just to infuriate you more.
I don't think I've ever gotten tired of a match I like. I still watch Goldberg/Raven about once a week. I have the commentary memorized which is something you don't want when it's Tony and Larry
If wrestling was food I like to eat Bret vs Shawn at WM12 would be carnitas.
Up by 8 points heading into tonight's games for the last spot in the BoD Fantasy Hockey League playoffs. But dude I'm up against has 7 guys in his starting lineup tonight plus 2 goalies against only 5 guys in mine and only 1 goalie. As long as I don't get crushed tonight, I should be able to sneak into the playoffs.
Damnit, I have to go soon but this could be funBret/Shawn12: Really good cheeseburgerKurt/ChrisRumble: SushiBret/Steve13: Faux gras
I'd love to see he and Bret break down SS96
Rock/Austin at WM17 is that really dope cut of steak you grilled yourself on the first day of spring.
The Rumble would be Thanksgiving Turkey if it was reliably delicious these days.
Watching some MST3K
Got my mom to give the 2003 Hulk movie a shot on HBO. Hope she likes it as much as I do
Just in time for me to have my revenge!
Reigns vs Lesnar is the weird fatty shit that drips off cold spam out of the can.
La la la!
Ok, checkin out for about 6 hours, you boys have a good FridayBe back tonight for some drunk luchas
A few things I noted from watching the first half of WMXX, for the first time in ages:Cena was OVER. So over, with man woman and child. I'd forgotten just how over he was.Fatal Four Way tag matches suckFellow divas ripping off Jackie's clothes when she didn't want to undress made me very uncomfortable.Flair had forgotten how to wrestle by this point. Entertain, yes. Wrestle, no.
Parks and Recreation while having dinner of pizza and wings. You know, I usually find Aziz Ansari REALLY obnoxious, but he is just perfect on this show.
RTC's music is a total assault to the ears.
I see WWE has begged Shawn Michaels and Hall to tweet about the IC title ladder match at 31. GOTTA RAISE THAT BRAND AWARENESS YO.
I feel the same way about Amy Poehler
Would be welcome. I always learn when either of them talk which makes listening to them such a pleasure. It seems like people would like when the audience wants to understand what they are watching but most wrestlers want the exact opposite.
She should've just let it happen, as Jameis would've wanted
See, good character continuity for Paul Heyman to not like RTC even as a heel commentator.
Boss just texted me to enjoy my weekend off. CENA'S FREE!
-so...you think you're untouchable-*cenas better theme song kick in*
Attempt #3 to get Buchanan over.
The Network is missing a batch of ECW 94 TV so I gotta whole block of 94 Raw in front of me tonight. Yay?
Parks and Rec feels like live-action Simpsons not just with its giant city of characters, but in its humor too. I was watching the Fairway Frank ep last night, and the bit where April lets the possum loose in Ann's house, then adds "And he did that too!" and points to the water ring on Ann's table felt straight out of the Simpsons playbook.
Had he stuck around, they might have tried pushing him instead of Cena.
I got to hold onto my first truck for 11 years; put 170,000 miles on her and drove her as far north as Boston and as far south as Fort Myers, Florida. But she won't pass inspection in her present state, and with the truck needing $3,500 just to pass inspection (Not counting $700 for new ball joints and another $1,000 on the brakes)...11 years and 170,000 miles is a good ride, but I think she's ready to be put out to pasture. My wife is absolutely gleeful about taking it to get junked, so I wiped snot on her door handle and spit on her headlight when she wasn't looking. Those who've heard stories about my wife understand my glee at having done this.
I grew up watching that shit as a kid so for me early to mid 90's wwf and wcw holds a huge amount of nostalgia. I'd say Yay.
I think this is how Huey Lewis came up with that truck song
"How can a guy from Oklahoma be so generous about a Texan?!"
All you're missing is either a potato in the tailpipe, pissing in the gas tank, or leaving a little dead rat in a hard-to-reach spot.
"ANN WE LET A POSSUM LOOSE IN YOUR HOUSE AND IT TOUCHED ALL YOUR BRAS! LOVE YOU BYE! RUN APRIL!!!!"
So did I but aside from Backlund, Fall of 94 is absolute death. The main TV feud involves multiple midgets.
Damn, that was a glorified squash. I just noticed how all of the hometown buys (Bradshaw, Taker, Austin) actually won tonight!
Also i don't get how spitting on your car teaches your wife a lesson?
Razor vs Yoko for the IC title should be interesting.
That 6 man is actually pretty fun. Even the quick, get everyone on the card matches on that show are elite.
Stephanie's nearing peak hotness here. Just get those cans done in a few months and we're set.
this year's Royal Rumble is an off-brand Hungry Man Thanksgiving Dinner with a frozen spot in the middle of the turkey
One thing I liked about the New Generation were the babyfaces having unique in ring fireworks displays.
you were with HBK at wrestlemania 17?
Ah yes, the awesome enhanced version of Kane's first theme.
2000 Ford F-150. When she totaled it in January I took the $2800 and salvage title, put $500 into making it driveable for the time being and put the rest down on a car for her. But she got her car totaled when a drunk piece of shit hit her head on, and my company shut down, so I'm up the creek.
Reading about the French military pre-WW1, and them fuckers DESERVED to be the (proverbial) college frau being misused by the German military (proverbial) drunken frat boy.Randy Orton would go hoarse calling them STUPID! STUPID! STUPID!.On the other hand, nobody deserves what happened to France (and pretty much all of Central Europe) in WWII.
I spit on her car, big difference. Small victories.
Did we talk about the Type O Negative song produced for Kane?http://www.metalinjection.net/today-i-learned/til-type-o-negative-recorded-an-entrance-theme-for-wwes-kane-that-was-never-used
Years ago I rubbed my now exes tooth brush on my balls and ass one time because I was so fucking mad at her so I understand that passive aggressive stuff.
Whats the general consensus on the best ever Bob Orton match?
I would love it if there was a legends section at WrestleMania... no interviews, just random shots of them enjoying the show and being a part of the crowd.
I really want to watch survivor series 92 over the weekend. That show was so great and I haven't seen it in awhile. I actually have it on DVD somewhere even.
Um... maybe one of the ones with Hogan... SNME maybe?
Technology changed between Crimea and World War I but tactics didn't. Hence the insanely high cost of life. What blows my mind is that they DID evolve tactics in WW2... and MORE people died.
Also, I always thought it was hilarious how Piper to this day gushes over the technical prowess of Bob Orton for being able to, "lift a 250lb guy up and turn him over."In other words... a fucking body slam.
If you're around and I'm free I might watch with you. I've never seen it before.
Oooo, Sevendust was my favorite for a very long time.
Prop glass or not that must've HURT
KENTA looks like he's finally grasping the NXT style.
IIRC, he has an EXCELLENT match against Adrian Adonis (pre-flab) on one of the Wrestling Gold DVDs from the early 80s, pre-WWE.
WrestleMania III opener was very good. Probably his best WWE match at least.
Bob Orton Jr. v. Adrian Adonis. Okay, this was SCW’s tournament final for their version of the “World” title, which ended up being about as viable as Fritz Von Erich’s version. Lou Thesz (spelled “Thez” in the pre-match graphics inserted by the Wrestling Gold folk) is there to present the belt, plus a REALLY old NWA World title from the 30s, back when it was about as big as a standard belt-buckle. Adrian works the arm to start, Bob responds in kind. They fight over a wristlock. Adrian hiptosses him and gets a FLYING HEADSCISSORS??? Holy crap. Bob reverses the headscissors, but gets hammerlocked. They exchange snapmares, and Adrian backslides him for two. Bob regroups and grabs an armbar. Adrian goes for the headscissors again, but Orton catches him, and Adrian rolls him up for two. Adrian goes back to the hammerlock. Bob gets overpowered, but monkeyflips Adonis off a criss-cross and grabs the armbar again. Adonis rams him into the corner, but Bob holds on like a bulldog. He turns it into a vicious pinning combo for two, and works the arm. Criss-cross again and Adonis hits an atomic drop for two. He goes up, but the splash hits knee. Orton drops an elbow and gets two. An Adonis rollup gets two, but Orton posts him, reopening a cut from earlier in the night. Orton methodically drops a knee for two. Bulldog is blocked by Adrian, but Orton sends him into the corner upside-down and takes over again. Superplex is blocked by Adonis, and they collide for the double-KO. Adonis hooks Good Night Irene, but Bob hotshots out of it. Back to the sleeper, reversed by Orton, and Adrian whips him to the ropes to escape. Bob cradles, and Adrian reverses for the pin at 14:47. Dave notes that they were on their best behavior to impress Thesz, and it shows with a technical masterpiece that you wouldn’t expect given how Adonis turned out later. **** Scott's review.
I loved that.
Lord Business was the best character of any movie this year. Totally watching Lego Movie again.
Southwest Championship Wrestling, run by Joe Blanchard. You may have heard of his son, Tully. They're most famous for being on USA before the WWE, and getting kicked off after an infamous angle involving... dog shit, IIRC.
Was 94 the first year they expanded the Survivor Series teams to 5 a side?
Stupid, hardcore fun.
Also, Kayfabe Memories basically being a dead site saddens me...
Her hate of my truck is nonsensical is what gets me. My parents helped me make a down payment on it as my Christmas gift in 2004, and they didn't kiss her ass enough so she hates them years after they kicked. Now the truck is somehow "mommy and daddy's truck" and she wants the junkyard to smash it.
You mean other than the first couple of years?
And the thing about Kane winning the Hardcore title is nobody will DARE try to run up on him haha
a dog shit angle? pre-kennel from hell in a cell? Wow!So this is the San Antonio territory, right? I only see that referred to as Blanchard's territory lol, never an official name
I didn't remember it started out as 5v5 and I was too lazy to look it up.
'95-97 still had mostly 4-on-4 matches.
Everything is awesome....
It mildly perturbed me to realize there is an 'NXT Style'.
Correct. Blanchard "broke off" from Texas/Fritz (Gary Hart gives an excellent explanation of Texas and the three major promoters in his Guest Booker), tried to go national, and failed miserably.
I was always disappointed when they dropped it from 5-on-5 to 4-on-4. Seemed less epic to me.
Were Edge & Christian still heels heading into WrestleMania X7? Of were they good cops to Angle's crazy bad cop?
The graphic for the Million Dollar Team is hysterical. Vince made it seem like Bundy was some 8 foot giant.
Anybody enter their address into the Survey Monkey WWE Network survey?
Pretty big ovation for Rock's arrival followed by a cascade of boos
so Paul Boesch's Houston territory would be number 3? What was his promotion called?And didn't the Funks have a territory in West TX?
My buddy surprised us and got floor tickets for nxt in San Jose. I'm so fucking pumped for mania weekend now.
I'm kind of scared to. Not sure who will end up getting it.
I'll admit, I always liked Test's theme.
You just have to write the street and address number. Good luck to them trying to do something without a zipcode, city, or state.
Leslie knope is a grown up Lisa Simpson
Oh nice. I didn't read that part. I just entered mine. Thanks for the heads up.
I'm watching Sacramento-Philly and the Philly announcers are just as bad as JR and Cole. They have a replay official in the booth to explain certain foul calls. The conversation is as bad as you would expect. They haven't called any sort of action in the past five minutes.
If you win I get half.
I'm so confident that I'm not going to win that I'd give you 75%.
Test, test, this is a test...
This is a legally binding deal.
Oh hey, let's push IRS has a legit threat to the Undertaker in 1994!
Eddie wins too, giving us another hometown win
Big pop just for Austin arriving in the building
They were still heels
"I saw your flag, and it's missing 49 other stars!" YA THINK
Paul Heyman is just artfully getting under JR's skin lol
I'm hyped to see Benoit and Angle face off! This is as excited as a man can get with his clothes on!"
I have the rest of 1986 for Superstars and Wrestling Challenge ready to be uploaded. I should be able to upload one or two a day, in order to hurry and get to 1987 so we can get some NWA WORLD WIDE!!!Check it out here: http://www.dailymotion.com/strangerinthealps
Yeah, this isn't going to be a good fantasy night for me. Already down 9 to 2.2
North Carolina up by 11 with 15 to play against Virginia. I can't figure this team out.
Which team lol
Well, UNC in this case; I don't follow Virginia enough to understand them.
James, can I get a time stamp?
I think kevin owens could make the rings of saturn look devastating
Angles tights at 17 are awesome. He really doesn't have many misses though
I'd bet money on that movie being phased out because a guy can't tap.
Sorry, I had to close up.Boesch only had Houston, and was mainly well-known for his high payoffs to the talent.The Funks did run Amarillo, but after Dory Sr's death it slowly faded away, being bought out and closed in 1980.Short version of Texas in the early 1980s: Dallas controlled the state of Texas by virtue of having the lone booking office in the state. Joe Blanchard and Paul Boesch, without that office, could not have run full cards in the state. Eventually, Joe broke loose with Southwest, had a short little run on USA, and collapsed by 1985. Boesch never really tried to break free, but eventually gave up promoting full time by the end of the 1980s. Fritz and WCCW were the survivors, but that promotion was all but dead by the end of the 80s.
Roy Williams can't coach. Mystery solved. He's the Mark Richt of basketball. Gets the least out of the most.
True.I wish owens would have used it on the indy circuit.
Oh come on! That was getting God-tier until the anticlimactic finish.
Where is Angle-Benoit on best rivalries?!?
Aw fuck, the gimmick battle royal
God forbid Kessell does anything. Last 10 games: a goal and 3 assists.
Heenan is at least fun,
The military kicks ass, Maggle!
James, up until this show which Mania have you liked the best?
Either 10 or 14.
He topped them at 18.
in my Russian history class we just got to WW2The loss of life on the Eastern front is staggering.
Benoit wasn't really a face yet right?
Nope, still a heel until he steals the Medals
His TNA gear sucked.
Took a break from my friday the 13th the series marathon to watch 96 ecw.Heyman was very good keeping his top guys interacting with each other, yet continue to keep them strong.
Nearly 15 years later, Chyna is an absolute disaster but Ivory can still get it at 50
If this women is so awful, why are you still we'd?
Recent pic of Ivory?
Zack Ryder v Adam Rose on the Network. I love it when enhancement talent battle each other.
Upcoming 2001 shoot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pSPzrmBj8Y
She hasn't aged at all.
It's not like he had a weak finish The package Piled river is great.
Chynas outfit is ridiculous.
Well my Reimer pick up has been a disaster. And of course the one Flame player I have starting has zero points.
Not sure if it's been reported on here yet, but the Rock is hosting SNL on March 28th.
In the interest of fairness, that's from early 2011. But I can't find anything more recent...
Lisa is such an underrated MILF
Two sides with no scruples, no sense of empathy or humanity...
Damn, total squash.
McMahon street fight! Entertaining crap
Mike Wallace has been traded to the Vikings, but Miami have picked up Kenny Stills. If Jarvis LAndry continues to improve (he will, he's awesome) I think that's a net gain.
I thought the Piled River was Ahmed's finish?
My brother has only seen a handful of Sunny episodes so we're starting from the beginning.
I like Season 1
The Bills signed Percy Harvin. Still no QB though.
Autocorrect. Edit fixed it
"I wll never forgive your mother for giving birth to you!" Cold.
They're certainly trying their best to win without a QB. It's so sad.
Forgot Shane was still using No Chance in hell
Oh cool, they just advertised the Kid/Razor vs HBK/Diesel Action Zone match on this ep of Raw. So cool that I can't watch that on the network.
Man, the Niners have had a pretty shitty off-season. Lost Wills, Gore, Iupati, Crabtree, and Stevie Johnson, though the last 2 won't really be missed. That offense is going to be a disaster.
They were mostly civilian casualties. The mass deaths were more from Soviet incompetence than Soviet cruelty (their demeanor in Germany is another story)Also never knew Finland allied with the Nazis in WW2 against the USSR. In retrospect I feel like that's something I really should have known
I've never even heard of the guy they just signed. Already forgot his name.
The 11/29/86 edition of Wrestling Challenge is currently uploading and then encoding. When it's done, you'll see George "the Animal" Steele and The Junkyard Dog in tag action; Sivi Afi & The Islanders take on Dino Bravo & The Dream Team in six man action; Moondog Spot plays the babyface against Kamala; The Rougeau Brothers are in the ring; and check out a young Mick Foley (billed as Jack Foley) face off with Hercules. Also, Hillbilly Jim is on The Snake Pit; a Blackjack Mulligan vignette; a Superstar Billy Graham vignette airs, as he thought he was returning from a hip injury, before he went down again before he even got back in the ring; and a recap of the Steamboat-Savage IC title match from the 11/22/86 Superstars.
"WHAT IF JESUS WAS ABORTED?"
Apparently you can actually see a 20-something pre-ESPN Bill Simmons at the WrestleMania XIV press conference.
Why in christ's name would you pick any Maple Leaf right now.--signed, a Leafs dan
Could be worse, the Sabres are putting an AHL team out there. He'll, even in the AHL they'd be at the bottom end of the standings.
Random network glitch I hate: clicking on a show and getting "We're sorry, but the selected content is unavailable. Please make another selection."Such a pain in the ass.
Steph looked great. Bounce bounce bounce even before the boob job.
What a pop!
That match had more heat than this years main event will.
I rarely like random Internet people posting swerve fantasy bookings that don't follow internal logic--but nothing about WWE's booking of WM makes sense so I'd take basically anything for a cool ending to wrestlemania. Via a comment on reddit. "Roman was never supposed to beat Brock, just hurt him. He spends 30 minutes doing everything possible to beat Brock, and can't do it alone. Brock finally overcomes Roman, but before he can celebrate...Rollins comes down, but before he even gets to the ring...Ambrose comes running after him, then throws him into the ring like he's feeding him to Roman, then all three face off...then BOOM! They attack Brock. Triple Power Bomb, Seth cashes in. Shield is back, and they control the WWE Championship.It'll never happen, but hey, to dream."
Holy shit, the Rams signed Nick Fairley! Did that winning season give everyone in Detroit nosebleeds or something?
Nobody wants to watch Angle wrestle an invisible man over and over again, even in 4-5 star matches.
I'm sure no one else is subjecting themselves to this Kings-Sixers game, but the extent of the Sacramento offense is "throw the ball into DeMarcus Cousins and pray for a foul." There is absolutely no semblance of a functioning half-court set. So hard to watch.
Yep, one-year deal with $5 million guaranteed.
Eating a lot of Crunch Berries always makes me take pure green shits.
Got chills for the start of TLC 2.
buckdiddy plays Super Mario World:http://www.twitch.tv/sethbling
OK, so which season of Parks and Rec should I most be looking forward to?
