  5. You'll never see another actor have the same run of classic movies and iconic roles like Ford had.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Harrison Ford was my childhood hero growing up, so this plane crash has me worried.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Harrison Ford fan? I never would have imagined that Mar Solo.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hope Solo is my crazy ass sister.

    ReplyDelete
  9. So is there any more info on Ford? first I heard walked away. Then I heard cuts on face, then I've heard fractures and pretty bad condition

    ReplyDelete
  10. Jack Ryan, Indiana Jones, Han Solo, plays the grumpy old man in real life.

    ReplyDelete
  11. New update just went out. He has moderate injuries and was alert after the crash.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Better Harrison Ford role:

    Martin Riggs or William Wallace?

    ReplyDelete
  13. It doesn't feel like Thursday. Is Ryback and Kane the main event? It can't be

    ReplyDelete
  14. Roger Murtaugh.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Craig Sager's back!

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's Danny Glover, DUH.

    Ah, had a short drive today at only 7.5 hours to Ohio. Gonna hang out with some friends and family for a couple days and relax before making the final trek to Albany. Can't wait to watch some Network later.

    ReplyDelete
  18. With the Palin talk earlier, the best thing about Sarah Palin's run was the revelation she hooked up with Glen Rice in college

    ReplyDelete
  19. It's crazy we went the whole year without him. Good to see him suit up again

    ReplyDelete
  20. 1977-1993 was some kind of amazing run.

    ReplyDelete
  21. You totally can access tabs you had open on google chrome in different devices. That is awesome. I just had never signed into the google thing on my laptop. Just saved myself a trip back to the office and I am one fucking happy camper.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Seriously, she was the final straw in me voting for Obama over McCain. I was totally in on McCain thinking we'd get strict negotiations like a scene out of Deer Hunter.


    Instead, I was half expecting Palin to switch his pills with rat poison.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The story about fans attacking Usos/Reigns rental car with a chair after the Rumble is pretty crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Burt Macklin, FBIMarch 5, 2015 at 5:33 PM

    You seem to be confusing Harrison Ford for Mel Gibson.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Had a great cameo in Bruno.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Philly fans are nuts. Especially when they're drunk.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah, the Philly area is pretty much the most classless part of America.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Is it me or does she keep getting hotter? Not hot hot but cougar hot

    Can I just say take some stuff out of my chest?

  30. What match will be the best at WM? I predict the IC ladder match at ****1/4, then the show will be all downhill from there.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thaddeus MountainMarch 5, 2015 at 5:40 PM

    Downhill ice skating races. Holy fucking awesome!

    Good evening everyone.

  33. Thaddeus MountainMarch 5, 2015 at 5:41 PM

    Howdy kid.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My vote is Orton/Rollins if that's where they are going. Matter of fact, my money is on Rollins period.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Agreed.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yeah that can be a good match as well. I chose the IC title match, because I have a feeling several of them will be pissed off at being so low on the card, and feel the need to upstage the show, similiar to CM punk when he was against Taker.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Close enough to know what it's like, far enough to escape the mentality.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Just read a transcript of Nikki Bella's interview with Madden. Jesus fucking Christ she is clueless.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Burt Macklin, FBIMarch 5, 2015 at 5:43 PM

    I think Orton and Rollins could be crazy good.

    ReplyDelete
  40. If they ever did a movie on McMahon, Harrison Ford would be a shoe in for the part. Just don't ask him to try and replicate McMahon's physique.


    Imagine him yelling "YOU'RE FIRED!"

    ReplyDelete
  41. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 5:44 PM

    I see Michael Shannon in thar role.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh, so you're Delco trash?


    Make sense!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Which isn't always a good thing when ladders are involved. Here's hoping they keep the craziness to a minimum, but I'm rooting for them.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Nikki Bella is trying to claim the 30 second match that led to the #GiveDivasAChance deal was intentional and she is taking credit for it. All the lolz. She also says everyone has the same cut of merch.

    ReplyDelete
  45. cabspaintedyellowMarch 5, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    I don't know Nikki Bella personally, but she needs to shut the fuck up.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wrong again battery chucker.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My favorite part is that she says she is trying to change the culture of how divas are perceived. Never mind that she is one of the divas that set it back 20 years after Trish and Lita.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It doesn't matter where you're from, you're still trash.

  49. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 5:47 PM

    John.

  50. cabspaintedyellowMarch 5, 2015 at 5:47 PM

    Meltzer proclaimed today that Roman Reigns is officially the least over guy to ever main event Wrestlemania. He also added that it "was never previously possible for a guy who's as not-over as Reigns to main event WM, because the 'old Vince' would have changed the card and removed them."


    But how true is this statement? I feel like there had to have been guys less over than Reigns who main evented Mania.

    ReplyDelete
  51. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 5:48 PM

    Bad shit today.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hey she's earned that push. Fucking Cena has NOTHING to do with it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Mitch, The GodfatherMarch 5, 2015 at 5:48 PM

    Going to give American Crime a shot tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Meltzer is right. Even LT and Bam Bam were more over. Like I said when he won, this is truly unprecedented in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    Like what?

    ReplyDelete
  56. As the face? Maybe Nash?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lawrence Taylor maybe? That's about all I got.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Nash never main evented.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Good point.

    ReplyDelete
  60. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    It sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Why so mad bro?

    ReplyDelete
  62. also, to me it seems that in spring of 1995 Nash was a lot more over than Reigns is now.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was thinking the same.

    ReplyDelete
  64. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 5:51 PM

    Me and my mom got to a argument, alright I'm a hot head guy but I was trying to calm her down, I put my hand on her shoulder and she just grabs it and says "I'm break your fingers".

    ReplyDelete
  65. That's not fair. It was like that before she arrived. It's Kelly, Torrie and Stacy's fault.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Mitch, The GodfatherMarch 5, 2015 at 5:51 PM

    I really don't blame Reigns for much of it though. I can't blame it much on the breakup of the Shield because I don't know how farther they could have went as faces after their feud with Evolution. His injury came at a bad time.


    After Orton, they could have Reigns do what Ambrose couldn't and defeat Rollins. That could have gave him more momentum heading into this year.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Christopher McDonald (Shooter from Happy Gilmore)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ted Turner was the best thing to ever happen to WWF. We need another crazy billionaire to give Vince competition again. That could only improve things.

    ReplyDelete
  69. This show ell be Wrestlemania 27 level bad

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'd Hulk Smash as long as she kept her views to herself

    ReplyDelete
  71. You saw the pilot?

    ReplyDelete
  72. She certainly picked the right boyfriend though, so she's not too clueless.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    I can see where you get being a hot head from.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I always wondered why FOX never got into the wrestling business.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Bold prediction:

    One of Brock/Reigns, Taker/Wyatt or Sting/HHH will be unexpectedly great.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Torrie and Stacy were managers. Kelly actually turned into a decent worker.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The most classless part of America is wherever you're from.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Real quick: Why does EA suck many, many donkey dicks?

    http://kotaku.com/an-updated-list-of-studios-ea-has-bought-and-then-shut-1689498614

    ReplyDelete
  79. Only problem with Orton/Rollins is that it will be heatless depending on how far WWE wants to drag out this overwraught fake friends nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Are any news outlets covering the Aaron Hernandez trial? This is one of the craziest stories ever and it just keeps getting crazier. Instead of it being all over the tv, it's nowhere. Can the NFL really be powerful enough to make a murder trial disappear?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Zeb Coulter would become the #1 face in a fox run wrestling show.

    ReplyDelete
  82. cabspaintedyellowMarch 5, 2015 at 5:55 PM

    If we lose Spock and Han Solo in the same week, I'm going to lose my fucking mind.

    ReplyDelete
  83. They were the beginning and apex of the "only hot matters/modelization" era.

    Torrie wrestled a lot.

    Nikki has gotten way better this year so I'll cut her some slack

    ReplyDelete
  84. seems taylor made for Rupert Murdoch.

    ReplyDelete
  85. That sucks. Most of those games on that list were really fun.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Brazilian, please NO New Japan Cup spoilers!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Robert Kraft demands an apology for you bringing this up.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Crikey Mate Down Under AussieMarch 5, 2015 at 5:56 PM

    Good morning! Was wondering, have any of you been to Australia before? And if so, please tell me something about your experience.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I don't blame him either. If you got a job offer you really wanted would you tell them "No thank you person X is more qualified." Of course you take the job, and that's what Reigns did.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Kangaroo rapes. Everywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I can imagine the last being much better than expected. I too believe that they are doing Sting vs. HHH instead of Sting vs. Taker because both of the former are too broken down at this point. and I also believe Trips will at least TRY everything possible to make this watchable.

    ReplyDelete
  92. actually, when Hernandez pleads this out he'll be apologizing to the Patriot Nation instead of the family of the victim.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I liked Wrestlemania 27

    ReplyDelete
  94. Sounds like he's killed many times before.

    ReplyDelete
  95. You know its bad when WWE can't even do a ready made Orton face turn.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Crikey Mate Down Under AussieMarch 5, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    That'll happen if you don't maintain eye contact :/

    ReplyDelete
  97. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    No matter what happens with this trial he's got another one for double murder coming up next.

    ReplyDelete
  98. doesn't that mean the news should be all over this? I don't even think Nancy Grace's senile self is covering it and it's right up her alley

    ReplyDelete
  99. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    Isn't this a movie with Ellen Page.

    ReplyDelete
  100. certainly not Brock/ Reigns though, because the audience will boo the entire match. I cant think of a single good match in history the audience completely pissed over. Its suck the wind out of the wrestler's sails.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Here's a not so bold prediction : Cena will start banging Lana. Rusev and the Bellas will then leave WWE. Cena will then dump Lana, and she'll be doing infomercials or D-List shit like that. Over/under for all this is 3 years

    ReplyDelete
  102. Seriously, guy gets fucked up, is out for 4 months, and comes back on a rampage? How much more do you need to build that shit up?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Something tells me they'd do it right, like they way they made the NFL better when they got it back in the 90s

    ReplyDelete
  104. We're talking about the TV show debuting tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  105. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:00 PM

    I'm sorry man, it's all my fault.

    ReplyDelete
  106. it's amazing how they managed to "cool off" something that was so obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I guess not enough "story" for their tastes nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  108. There were more stories to be told I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Burt Macklin, FBIMarch 5, 2015 at 6:01 PM

    I really have enjoyed Better Call Saul but I can't get gung-ho about watching it and usually don't watch it live but wait til in the week.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Yeah, it's a crazy case that media outlets should be jumping all over if they want ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Yeah, I dont remember Nash ever getting boo'd out of building as a face.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Benoit/Malenko got pissed on at Hog Wild.

    I honestly think Reigns/Brock could go between ** and ***3/4 stealthily.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    Closest I can think of is Styels/Daniles from Destination X 2012, though the crowd didn't boo, they were just dead silent because that match had already been done a hundred titles in that building.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Vince was probably worried about feeding Big Show & Kane to Randy Orton for a few weeks.


    Gotta keep those Hoss's strong for Roman in the spring.

    ReplyDelete
  115. How many reality based shows FOX has had over the years? Wrestling is TV's first reality show. Why wouldn't any network take a shot?

    ReplyDelete
  116. Jeez Andre was HUGE...think I might live blog TNT

    ReplyDelete
  117. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    Didn't say it was.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Gotta take a piss.
    But the wife's using the john.
    So outside I go.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Alfred sucks as a side kick, Vince is an asshole

    ReplyDelete
  120. I never saw that match. Did the audience piss over it or were just being silent? Its possible to have a good match with an uninterested crowd. I dont think its possible with 20 minutes of boring, Daniel Bryan, refund, this match sucks, chants and constant boos though.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Could totally see Vince freaking out and botching a Cena heel turn to feed to Reigns to try to get him over.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Big difference between silence and the audience aggressively assualting the match. Look at how Lesnar reacted at WM XX for example.

    ReplyDelete
  123. But you really can't appreciate his size yadda yadda.

    ReplyDelete
  124. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:04 PM

    Oh, I thought it was the movie, sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Booing. Because no one was nWo. Loudly.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Yeah, say what you will about Miz now, but at the time, he was molten hot. Lawrence Taylor had celebrity appeal, people liked Nash and hated Shawn at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Ok, well maybe Im wrong, but Lesnar and Reigns aren't Malenko and Benoit.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Watching Andre v Patera now. They should go back to the camera angles they used back then. Makes it seem more real

    ReplyDelete
  129. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 6:05 PM

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that one. Fucking idiot bikers.

    ReplyDelete
  130. He'll give Cena the cool persona he should've always had and get him unanimously cheered while Reigns becomes the maligned Cena character.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Rusev hits Cena in the head so much that he causes brain damage, leading to the turn.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I love how wrestlers stealing the real champions title belts is now something babyfaces do.

    ReplyDelete
  133. They don't want real. The want seizure-inducing Larger Than Life.

    ReplyDelete
  134. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:07 PM

    I'm looking forward to Kanye Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Adam "Colorado" CurryMarch 5, 2015 at 6:08 PM

    "You sold out! You sold out!"

    One guy was retiring, the other was attempting to get a job that would have paid 1/20 of what WWE was paying.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Listening to Bryan and Vinny eviscerate RAW and the current booking last hiliarious and valid

    ReplyDelete
  137. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:08 PM

    I just can take anymore any of her bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  138. ..Which makes it look completely fake. NXT does it right, imo. They don't force it, and it still looks great

    ReplyDelete
  139. You can thank TNT Asst Director Dunn for fixing that camera angle problem.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Or worse, try to fully turn Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Never let reason get in the way of a good crowd grandstanding.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Somebody got lariato'ed.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Nash had momentum. They fucked up Reigns badly since his return from injury and they more they force him to the fans the more they are revolting.

    ReplyDelete
  144. What year? 1980 or 1985?

    ReplyDelete
  145. Bryan as a heel, clean cut and pulling out his American Dragon persona would be a nice, refreshing change.

    ReplyDelete
  146. People always compare a potential Cena heel turn to Hogan's. What is the modern equivalent to that? I'd say it would be Balor and Owens coming and running roughshod over everyone and Cena joins up with them.


    Cena would look just as out of place with them as Hogan did with Hall and Nash.

    ReplyDelete
  147. The Cartoon Storyline. I like it actually. The IC title hasn't been in this much demend in decades.

    ReplyDelete
  148. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:13 PM

    Alright.

    ReplyDelete
  149. There is no modern equivalent. Nothing comes even close.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Its one of the dumbest angles of all time. And it will get no one over because in the match, the only one who will benefit is whoever takes the craziest bump that night. Winning the title has nothing to do with it.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Its amazing how much better (and better booked) WM XXXI would be if Bryan and Reigns merely traded their spots on the card. Infact, Reigns would be the perfect guy to bring prestige back to the IC title while he prepares himself for a Heavyweight run next year.

    ReplyDelete
  152. ...And coming to the ring to the Final Countdown? Yeah. I can get on board with that.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Shelton BenjaminMarch 5, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    With the Palin talk earlier, the best thing about Sarah Palin's run was Who's Nailin' Palin

    You betcha

    ReplyDelete
  154. There is no storyline equivalent, but you could definitely echo that angle in the booking.

    ReplyDelete
  155. They'll have a good match and the crowd will be into it, but it'll mean nothing a week later.


    I mean we just saw Ziggler & Harper killing it at TLC and what did that mean?

    ReplyDelete
  156. I think it will be Sting vs HHH. The expecations are crazy low but it's not impossible that if Sting tries really hard it could be a three star type match. I don't think Wyatt can work and Taker is not the guy to get a match out of him and Brock vs Reigns is going to be shit.

    ReplyDelete
  157. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    Lisa Ann retired, Officer Farva is crying in Heaven.

    ReplyDelete
  158. People would just see it as Cena trying to hog in on another latest hot trend to steal some of the heat away.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Too bad Lisa Ann didn't do anal in that one though.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Calling it a storyline is generous. An 11 year old could come with it.

    ReplyDelete
  161. With Punk gone there's a definitely need for a smug, dick heel that could outwrestle guys.


    He and Brie would probably make a great, obnoxious heel tandem.

    ReplyDelete
  162. All her great work is saved for ever for us all to enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  163. NXT Invasion, i mean it'll happen eventually i'm sure. Same goes for a John Cena heel turn.

    ReplyDelete
  164. That's kinda the point.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Mitch, The GodfatherMarch 5, 2015 at 6:16 PM

    That title hasn't had prestige in over 15 years. I don't think Reigns would have been the guy to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  166. I...would actually be okay with this. Have him get rid of the beard and cut his hair like Foley did to "clean his image up."


    And really, crowd reactions have cooled to him. Why not pulled the trigger on a heel turn now?

    ReplyDelete
  167. I think that's the intent.

    ReplyDelete
  168. ThebrazilianpsychoMarch 5, 2015 at 6:17 PM
