Because it needs repeating:"God, let's face it. I don't like you and you don't like me. I've defied every law you've ever had and have been TREMENDOUSLY successful. And I'm sure you never intended for a 60 year-old man to have a Herculean physique like I do. And I know that you and I aren't close, but I know you and Shawn Michaels are very, very close. So tonight, God, I'm gonna tell you what I'm gonna do to your favorite wrestler. I'm gonna send him straight down to the fiery depths of HELL! Amen!"

Scott Darling is an INFINITELY better option over Ben Scrivens. Thanks, Blackhawks.
Roman doesn't like Daniel Bryan chants when he's talking. I'm sure his plea for fans to shut the hell up will be respected.
Mia Khalifa has taken the brass ring from Lisa Ann.
"If you’re a Daniel Bryan fan, I’m all for that. The more people Daniel Bryan will bring into arenas, the better. The more people I bring in, the better. But when I’m talkin’, shut the hell up and let me talk.”Roman, sorry buddy but I don't think you are bringing anybody in.
I remember this casket match not being terrible.
Finish him, Brock!
this WWE management vs the fans feud is never going to end, is it?
Is CM Punk ever going to fight or is this like when Hogan said he was running for president?
This is gold for when Reigns goes Rocky like heel.
He said later in the year
He's gonna have a lot of real anger and ammunition, that's for sure. Kevin Kelly said Rock basically HATED the WWF fanbase until 2000.
to his credit he never really showed it. Everyone that met him during that time said he was a nice as could be.
Watching Mania 22 on the Network, at one point in Trish vs Mickie, close to the end of the match, it cuts to the crowd for a pretty long time. Did something happen there that WWE cut out?
Thing is, does Reigns have the verbal ability to turn the anger into promos that will make me want to see him get his ass kicked?
His coaches say he needs a year of training.
When he starts cutting promos that sound like a teenage girls twitter timeline then you will hate him....wait, he does that now.
Vaginal claw then Mickie licking her finger
AKA The Spot Of The Night.
that may be a good sign to know this really isn't for you.
Anyone excited about Simmons guesting on Monday? I wonder if Vince will scream in his ear, too
I think they also edited out Trish's botched StratusfactionIt's amazing how rabid the crowd was for Mickie. One of the best angles ever, and not just b/c it involved two attractive women (though of course it helped)
JR and Lawler rolling with the crowd was hilarious. "Sounds like the Chicago mental hospital all got day passes!"
Ah OK, thanks, they show the vaginal claw I believe but not the finger licking.
So those comments from Reigns, we're being worked right? This is all leading to a Reigns heel turn?
Mickie was fantastic, and played her character as being just damaged enough to garner sympathy, but crazy/violent enough to be booed by most
does it even matter? the mania main event will still suck. Bryan still won't be main-eventing.
I honestly thought it was going to result in Trish turning heel on Mickie, b/c they did such a good job of building Mickie as the misunderstood fragile one that Trish was losing patience with
I read he had his first amateur fight in his training camp against a 4-0 prospect with an amateur wresting pedigree. He went three rounds but would have list the decision.
Ah thanks, on the Network they show Trish backing away holding her crotch a bit and that's it.
Not a good sign. I can see them going the Kimbo Slice route and throwing him in there with tomato cans to puff up the record before feeding him to the killers in a money match.
Too bad Mickie's last proper TNA run was cut short. She was doing a fine job with her heel turn
then at the same time Mickie tries to force herself on Trish sexually, and that's not ok.
So the Mesa gunman was cuffed and stuffed after shooting 6 people, including 1 that died. A pic was released and his face and neck are heavily tatted. On the side of his left eye, there is a '88'. Does anyone know what that means?
I wish they'd hurry up and turn Kalisto into a gay hairdresser.
I liked when they swapped characters to play mind gamesTrish-as-Mickie~
He's not there to win titles. He'll have one big fight and that's it.
Back to the Future?No clue
"Vincent Kennedy McMahon, business icon, creative genius, and one handsome, virile, son of a bitch."
And a cocaine addict.
sounds about right. Then he'll be main eventing wwe shows while working 5 times a year.
You're going down
I'll watch Mania b/c hey, I like WWE. But in terms of how it all goes, it's like... whatevs.When was the last time you actually *cared* about the outcome?I'd say WM XXX with the Bryan stuff.
"I still remember the Rumble, Shelton!"
Is he a NASCAR driver?
While somehow being offended when some blue chipper doesn't want to work with him b/c he's a part timer
Damn, I said I was sorry, yo
Somebody earlier mentioned the scumfucker might have been involved with white supremacy groups based on the tattoos.

Quit stealing my catchphrase, son
I have an emotional pull towards Bryan, so whenever he's in a big match I really want to see him win.Ditto for Sami Zayn and his chase to the nxt title. And I REALLY wanted Sasha to win that 4way
Beautiful 450 splash. Hmmm...
Does anyone mind if I drop the link to my Dailymotion page?No? *boom* http://www.dailymotion.com/strangerinthealps12/13/86 Wrestling Challenge just upped. IC champ Randy Savage is in action; The US Express are in tag action; Paul Roma vs. Harley Race; Lanny Poffo vs. Butch Reed; SD Jones vs. Adrian Adonis, with a very interested ringside viewer; Sika is also in the ring on this episode; The Snake Pit has Roddy Piper as a guest; revisiting The Honky Tonk Man going to Jimmy Hart as his new manager; and some intrigue regarding Andre the Giant's reinstatement, and...why was Bobby Heenan there? Two more "weeks" and we're into 1987, and that brings out....NWA World Wide.
Why the hell am I not in the HoF, playa?Seriously, great career dating back to the JCP days
Fucking huge game tonight. Got to get the receipt back in the O. I can't wait until 730
You're probably confused for Butch Reed.
Simmons won't give a fuck.
Paul Roma v Harley Race - Is that the match where Roma put on Race's crown to a big pop before Race beat the crap out of him?
Well, I am a natural with a hacksaw
Moonraker on one of the encore channels...I'll jump in.
Anyone see the post-Convergence Superman costume? Kinda neat. That T-shirt is rad.http://nerdist.com/exclusive-dc-comics-unveils-week-one-of-their-post-convergence-titles/
Never been able to get into Bond
I'd laugh if he says something that gets him suspended from ESPN again.
That was me - it wasn't confirmed at that point but it's all coming out now.
Also known as the Dbag Fight Club wannabe
I think it looks stupid. What is the point of having super heroes if you just dress them up in a shirt and jeans? So boring.
"Who was that James?" "That was Jaws. He kills people"Or something like that...
OK I got a question figure you guys are the only ones that can help. I saw a match 10 years ago between 2 Japanese dude. Don't know the promotion, don't know their names. One guy had short black hair and wore white vinyl-esque pants like Tajiri, but they were white with I think red flames or dragon or whatever. The other guy I think had black trunks and was much bigger. Also Japanese. Dude in white pants had a sweet slingshot people's elbow looking move and most of the match was him doing enzuigiri variations on the bigger guy, trying to cave his skull in.Does this sound familiar to ANYONE? Can you tell me the names and the match? Thanks.
I'm not wrong
tv guy for espn
Lisa Ann does NOTHING for me. The comically large fake tits and the Pam Anderson on steroids lips ruin her.
If this was 2003 then I'd agree. He's not the same guy
The one and the same.
You can say that about 75% of entertainers across the board.
Duke Droese: I know you are, but what am I?Kid from Shelbyville: A garbageman.
That was Yokamamu Hordushi vs. Wakalacki
Old man Tenryu was awesome.
before last year? 2000
No not it. The smaller guy was young and I think the other guy was younger too
Eh. I still dig the T-shirt. I'm cool with a different look for a while. I don't know any fight club douchbags. Couldn't speak to that.
Hmm so in the same sphere of influence to me.
Well, of course you don'tThey don't talk about it
Takes one to know one.
Barry Windham looks 85 years old in that picture
YouTube came back with nothing. Google too.
They guy you want to address this question to would be Dock Muraco.
That's something they probably won't tell him about until it happens and it's too late to do anything about it.
That Thaddeus is one bad mammajamma.Hey you're right!
I'm addressing EVERYONE
I hope they drop that. The Lucha Dragons are very over with live crowds.
Comment of the night. Well done, Kofi!
thanks for clarifying.
JR's commentary was so awesome for this match
For main events in the last ten years I've cared about 30, 28, 26, 25, and 23.
Yeah, they were totally real wrestlers I named...*whistles*
It sure was.
Ha, Shawn curses at the dorks in the front row chanting "You Screwed Bret" at him
http://www.wrestlezone.com/editorials/562321-a-four-point-plan-for-wweI usually disagree with Mark Madden's idiotic opinions, but he's spot on with this one. Except for the "separate Brock Lesnar from Heyman" part. Brock can't talk live. He needs a mouthpiece.
Riley's new serious character is kind of undercut by the dorky backwards hat.
“For a year, I had this vision of me wrestling (former UFC champion) Brock Lesnar in the main event for the WWE Championship. But sometimes, when you don’t get what you want, you end up getting something better — like this ladder match. I think with the guys we have in that match and the excitement we can generate, we have a real chance of stealing the show.”lol
Fortunately Brock has such a presence about him that he doesn't need to talk. And Heyman delivers the goods on every promo.
There was a blurb for Sting's Raw appearance at the end of the Madden article, and it reminded me of how stupid JBl sounded when he called it "the Stinger drop"
I enjoy listening to Cornette's podcast but he needs to cool it with the "kayfabe is dead so that's why business is bad" stuff. The only thing that has changed is the way fans consume it. Everyone still wants to believe what they are watching is real, at least while they are watching it.
This'd be the weirdest heel turn if he can ever convince people he's happy with this bullshit
Misawa always had this skinny fat look.
And I refuse to beleive even back in the early 80's that people fully believed wrestling. You watch stuff from back then, it's so much more obvious that it's fake than now.
The thing is, Brock is pretty gold when he talks in video packages. But WWE insists on this 20 minute promo shit for every performer.What's funny is that there's no way Reigns can hold his own in a 20 minute promo either.
Exactly! People just wanted to believe and went with it. It could be the same way now if they didn't go out of their way to remind everyone it's not real.
He couldn't work out in his final years because he was so badly injured. Also he smoked and drank heavily. That's why he had that big gut near the end. He was in shape in his prime though.
Wrestling has always been popular in the special ed set, but unless that was the entire fanbase then there were loads of people willingly suspending their disbelief.
Ha, I think Shawn pulled the ol' "Ask your sisters and your mama's how gay Shawn Michaels is!" on the Bret fanboys in the front row.
Everyone knew it was horseshit. The only difference between my uncles and me re: wrestling is I'm the one who was enough of a dork to figure out *how* it's bullshit. I'll assume Cornette is keying on the presentation of wrestling on-screen, but god knows with him.
Cornette is delusional if he honestly thinks that most believed pro wrestling was real in the 1980s.
I started watching in 1991, and there were always plenty of non fans around to make sure to let me know it was fake every chance they got.
I get the impression he means the death of kayfabe but other than us, who paid any of that stuff much attention?
The Amore/Cassady opening spiel goes on too long. Not even the New Age Outlaws went on that long.
Well, you can't teach that.
My loving and caring mom was always a room away to do the honors for my brother and I.
They definitely need to tighten it up, but it's over, so no reason to rock the boat, yet.
Do japanese companies still use Budokan Hall for events?
That's why when it's mentioned about a Reigns' heel turn - can he actually deliver an effective heel promo? If they believe in the guy that much, can't send him for promo classes or something to improve his delivery?
I think Jaws from james bond has a worse record than Kane.
I'm always hesitant to listen to a podcast from an old-timer, because it inevitably descends into an echo chamber of "Well, if things were done like they were done in MY day, the business wouldn't be like it is," failing to realize that the genie is out of the bottle. You can't put it back in.
My granddad was always there for that.
Mrs. Stranger met Jaws when she was a kid. Her family were travelling to Colorado, and bumped into him at a truck stop in West Texas.She said he was a nice guy.
All those guys that came home from Europe, Korea, and Vietnam had no idea what a real fight looked like you see. It was a different time.
He's not like that all the time but it's annoying when he does it. He's at his best when talking about the history of mainly the Kentucky/Tennessee area. If you into wrestling history then I would highly recommend those podcasts
What did he do between Bond movies and Happy Gilmore I wonder? He's pretty funny I guess, I wonder why he didn't get into wrestling.
Yeah, "Game of Thrones" is going to lose a lot of popularity once its fans realize it's not real.
Ha, "YOU KILLED VINCE! YOU KILLED VINCE!" chant! Never noticed that before!
Yeah but he looked awesome jobbing to Bond.
I remember seeing him in Cannonball Run II.
Active WWE or TNA wrestlers who need a heel turn ASAP?
And he was in this awful Ryan ONeill flick called 'So Fine'. He was the only highlight in that train wreck.
Damn you guys were surrounded by jerks! My dad always played along and never once said it was fake haha.
There were rumors that he was taking acting classes. You can see how well THAT has worked out, if true.
Oh yeah, and there was Pale Rider also.
Some guys have it - some guys don't.
Big Show.No, wait.....Kane.Big Show.
My dad played along too. Mom? not so much. She was mean about it too. I'm like why do you care so much? You watch Young and the Restless so shut up
I think my router finally kicked the bucket. All the lights on it just blink and it won't connect. Resetting does nothing.
This guy gets it.
Right. Like I love Dolph Lundgren, but the guy could take a dozen years of acting classes but he'll never be Daniel Day-Lewis. But that doesn't he mean he can't be kick-ass and put out good movies in his role.KNOW YOUR ROLE applies to Roman Reigns so well
But that Victor is so dreamy yet slimy
and dat Ridge...he is what Roman Reigns wishes he could be.
"Eddie's down there, IN HELL!"
Donatello does machines.
Raphael is cool but rude, Michelangelo's a party dude.
Ironically 14 year old me was a huge proponent of the HE'S TOO SMALL argument against Rey Mysterio. It was mostly a shitty way of conveying that I didn't think he was believable as champ and his push was forced and shoehorned, but still.
My mom never really commented. She supported my watching and would take me to buy DVDS and such but I don't think she ever said "cool!" Or "why do you watch that crap?" She was a neautral presence.
Rusev - Cena looks like a fool going after this tough, proud patriot.
that's better than being negative.
My Mom haaaaaaated it. Dad was supportive.
Never had a problem with this. It's all about how you book the match. If he uses his speed and quickness to wear down bigger guys then it makes since. If he's knocking guys out in 2 minutes then not so much.
Dolph Lungren is the most underrated actor of all time because of his spiky hair, his ice cold demeanor and his big muscles.
Michaelangelo is a lemon party dude.
To be fair, there's a pretty significant difference between Mysterio and Bryan.Mysterio's billed height/weight: 5'6", 175 lbs.Bryan's: 5'10", 210 lbs.
Feminists are all up in arms over a cover featuring Joker preying on a distraught Batwoman claiming they would never show Batman or Superman being as weak and vulnerable on a cover despite people showing them several examples of the opposite.
HEY! NOTHING YOU CAN SAY! NOTHING'S GONNA CHANGE WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME!
Feminists are all up in arms You could have stopped there
Just got back from taking an employee out for wings... he's 64 and could outwork all you fucks!
5'10" GUFFAW. I'm 5'5" and D Bry has MAYBE 1.5" on me. Rey on the other hand is maybe 5'3".
Robert Morris advances to face Duke, and are now of course America's Team in that matchup.
Oh, Alexa Bliss...
I laughed whenever anti-Bryan guys on Facebook complained that Bryan facing Lesnar wasn't believable, but if you told them that Bryan was an inch taller than Eddie, they'd say, "well, Goldberg interfered in the match to help Eddie win."Technically, Goldberg didn't factor into the ending of the title match, Eddie DDTing Lesnar onto the belt is what did Lesnar in before the Frog Splash.
Is there something to get upset about? Yes. Feminists will be upset.Is there something to get upset about? No. Feminists will be upset.There's seriously no better time to be a woman in the United States than today.
Has anyone ever built their own fence or had a fence built for them before? I need to out a fence in at my house (wooden) and am wondering what I should plan on spending. I really don't want to have to put it in myself.
Kickass WRESTLING MACHINE 2006 Kurt Angle with the remixed music. Love it.
I take people outworking me as a compliment. Let's me know I'm doing something right in this world
"I come in peace"."And you go in pieces".
Only downside is Kurt is frighteningly thin here.
You've met both in person?Okay, so they're both exaggerated, like every wrestler. That still means that Bryan is much bigger than Mysterio.
I haven't had any pizza since the Rumble. Something has to change.
Up Next on WWE Network: Another Legend's House replay!
Leprechaun in Space and Leprechaun: Back in da Hood are coming to Netflix in April.At last, our long national nightmare is over.
I had some homemade calzones the other day and they were to die for.
"The second round." SHUT UP WITH YOUR FAKE SECOND ROUND SHIT
Yeah, he can have that victory.
I always said it would make sense for Rey Mysterio to be world champ because he was insanely popular, has a legitimate life long story in wrestling, and was a superb enough wrestler that he could make it work. There is literally no-one else that small who could have pulled it off.Then they just fucking jobbed Mysterio for months until he lost the title anyway.
and you're going to die with them!
I've been close to both - Rey at a WCW house show and stood near Bryan at an ROH show. These are obviously estimates, but yeah D Bry is definitely much bigger than Rey.
I'd gladly die for them!
