    White Sox are about to be 0-4 to start the season. Fucking hell.

  3. Jesus fuck, not even a week into the season and there's already a Yankees-Red Sox series.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Looking at all of those empty seats in Yankee Stadium, I sort of miss the venom of the Sox-Yankees games from 10-ish years ago.

  5. Clash 18 is pretty great show if you haven't watched it. Except for a few short terrible matches everything else is very strong. Also I mean Rude/Austin vs Sting/Steamboat

  6. I'm spying on you, Newo....

  7. Good eye, sniper

    You shoot, I'll run

  8. Apparently, if the Spurs beat Houston tonight, they can jump from the 6th seed to the 2nd seed.
    Only fucking San Antonio......

    After weeks of partying in college is time for the paperwork.

    What Vince was taking at the time?


    How he came up with this awful idea of HBK/Jose?

    ReplyDelete
  14. So that marks the second time Vader's beaten HBK clean in a tag match. And yet, no title!

    ReplyDelete
  15. David Stern is probably sitting at home, furious and red-faced, trying to determine how he could fine the Spurs for this if he were still commissioner.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This thread is dead

    ReplyDelete
  17. The worst part about the heyman promos was Cesaro standing by him the whole time smiling and nodding looking like a dork waiting to get Heyman to start talking about him and that moment never really came.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If he can't have hair, no one can.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Obviously this brings up Beefcake. Did he EVER get to cut the hair of ANY major star aside from Adonis when he kicked off the gimmick?

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's the same advantage as Taker vs Cena in that you know Cena would have no problem doing the job.

    ReplyDelete
  21. In a draw?

    Way too piss off the fans.

    No Cena losing is the only option and wouldn't hurt him one bit since he's so established anyhow.

    It's why Cena's the perfect opponent outside of Triple H (but we've seen it before) losing doesn't hurt him one bit and Austin in Texas has to win.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Card lacks Big Show

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wouldn't happen for reasons stated below, but since when would Lesnar care about losing? Dude only cares about making enough money to live a life full of hunting and Sable banging.

    ReplyDelete
  24. But since when was it the main event of wrestlemania 19, WWE.com writer?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't know, sometimes a well fought draw can get the fans to like both guys more. If someone had to take a fall, though, it should be Cena, obviously.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Because Austin>Everyone else

    ReplyDelete
  27. Rock/Cena I was good, not mindblowingly great, but good. A better mania main event than many others and felt like one too.

    Triple H vs Taker was good .

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sure in Japan or ROH. in the WWE?

    No so much.

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's a good point...it's not booking that WWE's audience would go along with.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yeah that's one of two Austin falsities perpetrated by the WWE machine: 1) That all three Austin/Rock matches at WM were main-events (the one at WM19 wasn't as hyped or as important as Vince/Hogan if you ask me) and 2) That Austin is somehow a bigger star than Hogan was. Fucking laughable.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hypothetically, if Rousey loses in the next year, does she still do Mania?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 10, 2015 at 7:23 PM

    "Battle of the Billionaires 2" sounds terrible. Nobody gives a fuck about Jerry Jones outside of that stadium. Donald Trump at least brought some level of celebrity and the sort of caricature that wrestling is built on. The Donald also had history with WWE, having hosted a couple Wrestlemanias in the 1980s. Jerry Jones is just some old guy who owns a football team that hasn't won anything in two decades. Even hardcore sports fans aren't going to care about him. I have no doubt Jerry is going to get featured in some capacity, but anything more than just "Hey, there's the guy that owns this place!" during the opening fireworks is excessive.

    Ronda Rousey competing in a WWE ring is a great idea from WWE's perspective, but it has to be something more than Ronda vs. Stephanie. That one-on-one match would only be worthwhile if it was a complete squash where Steph finally gets what's coming to her after all these years. Basically, where she finally gets her Vince vs. Austin moment and takes a hellacious beating. Personally, I think it's a better idea to do Team Rousey vs. Team Stephanie, so you can showcase the actual talented Divas and keep Steph's involvement minimal and more believable.

    Shield triple threat for the title would be cool. Just have Rollins the champ going in, have Dean Ambrose win the MITB Briefcase this year, with Roman Reigns winning another Rumble (this time as a heel?). Rollins (champ) vs. Reigns (RR winner) vs. Ambrose (MITB Cash-in, in advance).

    I have zero interest in seeing Sting or Undertaker wrestle again, but if they must, then it may as well be against each other.

    If Stone Cold wrestles one more match, it absolutely has to be against John Cena. There is no reason for him to end his 12 year retirement just to face Rock and/or HHH again. A Lesnar match would draw, but Brock seems poised to be a mega-face for a while. They need all they can get to sell out a 100k seat stadium: Austin vs. Cena, Rock vs. HHH, Taker vs. Sting, Rousey vs. Steph (in some capacity), Rollins vs. Reigns vs. Ambrose, Lesnar vs. someone, etc. probably gives them as good a chance as you can ask for.

    They don't have enough tag teams to do a decent match, let alone a one-night tournament.

  33. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 10, 2015 at 7:28 PM

    A lot of things would have to happen to get there, but I think they have to go all-in to fill a 100k stadium. One scenario:


    - Stone Cold vs. John Cena
    - The Rock vs. Triple H
    - The Undertaker vs. Sting
    - Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reigns
    - Brock Lesnar vs. Rusev
    - Team Rousey vs. Team Stephanie, '4-on-4' Divas Match


    Part of me almost thinks they should hold off on a Shield triple threat, if only because it is going to be buried under all the "Legends" dream matches. Maybe hold off a year and do singles matches to boost the Shield guys even more:


    - Stone Cold vs. John Cena
    - The Undertaker vs. Sting
    - The Rock vs. Roman Reigns (heel)
    - Triple H & Stephanie vs. Brock & Ronda (end the Authority once and for all)
    - Seth Rollins vs. Shawn Michaels
    - Dean Ambrose vs. Daniel Bryan

  34. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 10, 2015 at 7:29 PM

    Yeah, if they had any intentions of making Cesaro a big deal, those promos could have actually built to it too. Do a slow burn where Cesaro gets tired of Paul hyping himself and Brock more than him, then finally snapping and challenging Lesnar.

    Even if they were able to magically patch things up with CM Punk in the next year, I think he's smart enough not to come back for WM32. That card is going to be loaded with part-time "Legends" and he would be Just Another Guy, even if they did a super-heated Punk vs. HHH match or something. That dude is ONLY ever coming back to headline Wrestlemania, I think. He is smart enough to wait until they "need" him more and can finally get that top billing

    ReplyDelete
  36. Shield Triple Threat would be awesome, and a rehash of the fatal fourway between the NXT girls would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The Man Without Fear and Born Again by Frank Miller are awesome stories. I haven't read much other Daredevil.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 10, 2015 at 7:49 PM

    If Dana & Vince are willing to play nice for a legit WWE vs. UFC crossover one-off, I think it would be amazing if they did HHH & Stephanie vs. Punk & Ronda. The promos, the legit real life heat, the crossover of the two companies, etc. The problem is, the storyline calls for Punk/Ronda to kick the shit out of Steph/Hunter and that just isn't happening on a WWE show.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The Frank Miller/Klaus Janson Ultimate Collections, the Bendis era, the Brubaker era and the Waid era are all A+ stuff. "Daredevil" has had some sickeningly good creative runs.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sad part is, if this was Vince and Shane instead, we KNOW, what would happen instead.

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's not that Lesnar cares, it's that they have so much invested in Lesnar (he hasn't been pinned since Mania 29) that when he finally loses it needs to be to someone who can use the rub moving forward. Giving that big victory to Austin wouldn't be smart from that standpoint.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "We find there have been a rash of falling deaths of late, which police chalk up to the recently concluded “Spider-Island” arc: the theory is people who got spider-powers in that story are web slinging when their powers cut out and they die."

    Well, that sure starts the story on the darkest fucking note possible. Holy shit, Slott.

    Also, for as much as I dislike a lot of Slott's ideas, he deserves credit for making the Sinister Six into big-time players in the Marvel U. They were fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  43. It is weird that in a matter of like 3 weeks they gave up on him with Heyman. And the reason from meltzer was they were pushing Reigns and couldnt push more than one guy. ( for some weird reason). Then it was revealed with the ausrin podcast with vince he didnt have "it" and didnt reach for the brass ring. How can they decide that from the time he won the Armbar to a month later when he was separated from heyman?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yup Daredevil probably has the most consistent quality out of all comic book series

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'll always say the same about Hogan that Kobe said about Jordan. He's thought of as the best (superstar, not wrestler for anyone about to get on my shit) because he did all the big things first. Got the big crowds, had the cross over appeal, sold the merch, and popped the buyrates. It is nothing against Austin, whom I love, but the wrestling we know today is because of one man. And please everyone save your "Oh but Vince could have put anyone in that spot and they would have succeeded". No, no, and no.

    Mania 19 certainly has to be the one mania where the actual main event was treated like a red headed step child.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You act like being in NXT is a bad thing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. No, because she isn't doing Mania unless she retires AND gets the go-ahead from Zuffa to pursue other physical sport ventures.

    ReplyDelete
  48. austin vs cena after cena turns heel would work. not gonna happen though

    ReplyDelete
  49. Which is why most of the dream cards on WWE.com are usually much better than the real deal - like the card for last years Wrestlemania, for example.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogApril 11, 2015 at 11:31 AM

    Yeah. Conversely, how did they decide that Roman Reigns DID have "it" during that same timeframe?
