Good evening everyone.
Huh, so Duke - Kensucky for the national title is likely. It's nice to see two teams that epitomizr everything wrong with this country face off. Maybe after Calipari has yet another accomplishment pulled the NCAA will finally look into Duke and how they're just as bad as everyone else.
Kuroko's Basketball is what basketball would be like if it were treated like professional wrestling.
Wisconsin is the 1 in 38-1.
Ever saw Slam Dunk?
Slam Dunk is a 3. Kuroko's Basketball is a 10.
God I hope. Then we'd have a nice, clean narrative: Fuck Duke.
How about if they took the concept of the cruiserweight open at XX and did a NXT open at Wrestlemania. Let the champion enter last. They would put on an amazing show.
Never saw.I don't think anything can compare with 16 year old female coaches, players with finishing moves, backstories to everything, and players so good and so dickish that they deliberately manipulate a final score to be 111-11 just to challenge themselves.
MSU ain't done yet.
Dear boys is a more realistic basketball anime, no finishers or magic.
Decided to double back to GameStop. Picked up South Park Stick of Truth, Assassin's Creed 1 and MGS HD Collection for $35!
Holy low price, Macklin!Son of a bitch!
Realistic is as boring as real basketball. There's a reason why you don't see any professional amateur style wrestling. Kuroko's Basketball is like the Harlem Globetrotters on steroids.
Ever saw Kinnikuman and Ultimate Muscle?Better booking than Raw today.
Add that to the fact that I got all 3 Mass Effect games yesterday for $9! I bought 6 games for $43. Acclaimed games at that.
Those Duke employees in the stripes may disagree.
I am only even aware of less than 1% of the anime/manga universe. I see Naruto, Kuroko's Basketball, Gintama, and may or may not watch Attack on Titan. That's about it.
Watch the Iron Sheik doc on Netflix--pretty damn good. Also, the Atari is Dead one is great.
Check it out, every wrestling fan should see. Kinnikuman and the sequel.
10 one minute matches with guys that are supposed to be the future of the company? Pass.
Goddamn, Sheamus took a beating in the '13 MITB match
Is Dick Vitale a ref now?
If that tired ass Hell in a Cell match wasn't already planned for Wrestlemania 28. . .Night of Champions: Punk & Cena def. HHH & NashHell in a Cell: Punk def. HHH in 'Hell in a Cell'; ADR def. Cena to retainVengeance: Punk def. Cena for '#1 contender' in a marathonSurvivor Series: Punk def. ADR for WWE Title; Cena & Rock def. HHH & Nash (HHH turns on Nash)TLC: Punk def. ADR to retain in TLC; HHH def. Nash
That's the one that injured him right?
To stack the odds in his favor, Rollins accepts a rematch with Brock with 2 conditions:-Steve Mazzagatti will be the referee-It's gonna be a stairs match
I was sitting around today and said to myself, "man, I really miss 'Coach'". You know what? NBC heard me and decided to bring the show back. Just playing about the missing the show part. Not joking about it coming back. Hopefully, it shows money transfers and banging co-ed/recruiting whores. I'd watch that.
Yeah. He takes like three absolutely ugly falls.
"They have to make three point shots to make a comeback."Stunning insight on this halftime show.
Was Victoria a heel at Mania 20?
I wish they had called an audible in the fall of 2011 and gone full-bore with HHH-Punk in the Cell, instead of Taker. Have Jericho's trolling gimmick be a ploy to get him a Streak match. Taker destroys Y2J at Mania 28, while Hunter lays down for Punk instead. Plus, Cena vs. Rock of course.
Ottawa Sentors uses Adam Rose's music for their goal scoring song. lol

"I love chubby chicks. They always go down on your, and they always have food in the fridge" lol
If everybody is doing it, then they're not the only ones wrong.
WRESTLEMANIA 28 RETCON:1. Sheamus def. Daniel Bryan to win WHT2. Kane def. Randy Orton3. Zack Ryder def. Cody Rhodes to win IC Title4. Team Johnny (Henry, Miz, Swagger, Ziggler, McIntyre, Otunga) def. Team Teddy (Big Show, R-Truth, Santino, Khali, Kofi, Booker)5. The Undertaker def. Chris Jericho6. CM Punk def. Triple H to retain WWE Title in 'Hell in a Cell' Match7. Divas Nonsense8. The Rock def. John Cena
I prefer what we got. Just have HHH lay down for Punk at NOC. That's the only change I want.
List of the most unusual matches in WWE history:Undertaker vs Mankind (Hell in a Cell)Edge vs Matt Hardy (Summerslam)Brock Lesnar vs John Cena (Extreme Rules)...
I'm sure a few of you have seen this. I still lolhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9YiTIYO-2A
Charge? Refs are just rubbing it in now.
ET TU, PAUL E?
My Dukies putting the boots to my ex-gf's Michigan St? I can masturbate to this.
I took a break from WM28, stopped after Taker/HHHMatch went a little too long, but it told a good story.Decent show up to that point. Sheamus/Bryan memorable for whateverOrton/Kane was a nothing match which only is memorable IMO for Kane going overCody/Big Show was a nice little match where Cody showed he is more than capable of leading the matchK2/Poop Stain Menudo vs. Beth/Eve was whatever. Celebrity WM moment. Inoffensive.Taker/HHH as mentioned aboveWill catch the rest later. 1st time seeing the show since it aired
In all seriousness, they say no to very few things in bed, so I love me some BBW
My girlfriend is starting to work out, she's turning into a smaller Gianna Michaels. YAY
Cody totally carried that feud with Big Show. He did some great heel work on the microphone. Thought Show going over was dumb because Cody could have use a win more and keeping him IC Champ was smart.
Not really, she was beginning to turn around that point. I think a month or so after that, she got her party mix face theme by Nicki Minaj
Today is his b'day I think.Some 80's FB page told me
At least he left some sort of legacy.
Unpopular opinion: I prefer the Edge/Taker feud in 2008 rather than Jericho/HBK.
Not at all. I also want players paid; the problem is everyone treats Coach K like he's Jesus Christ and Paypal Cal is lauded for his "refreshing" admitting the game. Both are hucksters selling an image on the backs of kids who have a lot more to lose.
He might as well be.
Edge - Taker was the only good TEH STREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! feud because Edge was the only one who wasn't an idiot.
Edge/Taker was an awesome feud. Big part of 08.
As of Mania 21Faces: 136Heels: 87Draws: 9
They had 3 classics, the WM match, TLC and HITC.I know Jericho/HBK also had 3 classics.
We need to see more time limit draws.
I also thought Cody should have gone over at 27 in the Legacy triple threat. Orton didn't need it, Dibiase was getting the focus, so a Cody win would have been a nice IMO... not telegraphed but ultimately believable
I don't think we're gonna get anymore.
Seventeen points... nothing good happening today.
Or 26, whenever it was
I love the run from MITB 2011-Extreme Rules 2012. Easily my favorite recent run of WWE programming. Had 4 shows I was legitimately and almost child-like enthused about: MITB 2011, Summerslam 2011, WrestleMania 28 and Extreme Rules 2012. I was more excited for those PPVS than I had been for any show before. Wasn't perfect but I loved that run and was honestly excited everytime a PPV came around.
Their Backlash match was also great. Don't forget that one.
YOBRUCE CHUNGWe need an update
Edge was at his slimest. I loved when Taker came back to finish him at HITC, the build was perfect. Nowhere to hide, you're in Taker's yard now.
Wisconsin better fucking win, i really don't want duke-kentucky.
This Siri girl is yummy.
There was this Edge promo where he was in the ring shit-talking Taker and the arena did the whole "darkness, spooky music deal" and the lights came back to Edge laughing at it. Anything that pulled the rug out from that Pink Floyd laser light show nonsense was great.
Tori Wilson was a face at Mania 22 right?
HBK did that in 97 when he dressed up as Taker.
Hey MSU alums - up Izzo's budget for players!
As of Mania 22Faces: 145Heels: 90Draws: 9
And then again in 05, with a goofy smile.
So would the Powers That Be prefer a Duke/Kentucky final for the ratings or a Michigan/Wisconsin final to prove a point?
Good lord, they booked Darren Young to pin DBry clean. Holy fuck.
Just wait for season 3, Cole & Co. bury the show.
Definitely Duke - Kentucky. The NCAA likes money. Also, guarangoddamnedfuckingtee that's the game we'll see.
Michaels was great at being a troll.
On this past smackdown?! I missed it...
How things have changed.
Amazing. Best TV ever.
As of Mania 23Faces: 151Heels: 93Draws: 9
I watched the season finale of Total Divas last night, and they showed Nikki heading to the ring to face AJ for the Divas title.And they actually had her say to the other cast members, "Well, I'm off to win the title, fingers crossed."...REALLY?!Or is this a case where maybe the other Divas didn't know and Nikki was 'fabbing them.But I'm betting the former, b/c WWE likes to insult our intelligence
Have there ever been any more blatantly biased officials, ever?These guys make Danny Davis look good.
I may have to check that out, I think they may have full NXT episodes on YouTube somewhere.
On Netflix. Cool! Imma check that out.
Maybe she was that confident in her ability she knew she was going to win.
Every Steelers Super Bowl appearance.
to you dammit, nerd
MSU is playing a handicap match against Blue Devils and Zebras.
Easy there, bobo Brazil.
How can DiCaprio not get an Oscar after Wolf of Wall Street, it was the best film I've seen in years.
Who won that year?
There's one aspect in particular I want to bring up but I don't want to spoil it b/c when it happens it's like the best thing ever
What had you so excited for Mania 28? Just curious
Duke men's baskeball gets the benefit of more calls than any other team I've ever seen.
Can't disagree. He was good in Dallas buyers club. It was a strong year as Phoenix was very good in Her as well.
Sure, but Leo as the Reincarnation of Caligula was perfect.
Who improved the most -- in the ring and/or on the mic -- between their major-company debut and when they reached main-event / world title level?
The RockKazuchika Okada.
Randy Orton should have beaten Kane at "Extreme Rules" 2012 in spectacularly violent fashion. Becoming the asshole, punt-your-head-off heel Viper version so he could be Punk's next challenger after the Jericho feud. They could have easily done Punk-Orton at 'Over the Limit' and 'No Way Out', especially if Cena had actually taken some fucking time off.
As of Mania 24Faces: 158Heels: 96Draws: 9
The whole card. I was loving Cody's IC title reign and he brought the goods in his feud with Big Show. Fantastic midcard feud. Punk was on fire and him vs. Jericho on a big stage was exciting. I loved the Undertaker/HHH match from the previous year and throwing in HIAC had my excitement at a fever pitch. And Rock/Cena explains itself. Not a huge Cena fan but Rock vs. Cena I was huge.
Punk on commentary?
Oh I should also add Survivor Series 2011 to shows I was excited for from 2011-2012. Rock's return match, MSG, Punk getting that strap back...HELL YES.
Punk: When I banged Kaytlin she said her favori...*PLEASE STAND BY*
As of Mania 25Faces: 164Heels: 99Draws: 9
I still maintain that they should have done Rock & Cena vs. HHH & Nash. More star power for an MSG show, plus it doesn't make Awesome Truth look like total jobbers. They got no "rub" or anything from that match. They could have gotten mileage out of Miz/Truth leading a crazy heel team against the WWE "lockerroom" during that whole "walkout" angle. - Rock/Cena vs. HHH/Nash (heels job to set up the HHH-Nash garbage for TLC...gotta have that Hunter strong for Taker! smh)- Team Awesome Truth vs. Team WWE- Punk vs. ADR, WWE Title
Seth Rollins at least mic wise.
Jeff Hardy ring-wise.
Honestly? Batista. Because I thought he was the next Brakkus. Flair worked a miracle.
As of Mania 26Faces: 171Heels: 103Draws: 9
Well we ended up getting Punk/Bryan and Orton got suspended shortly after Over the Limit.
Shame Vince's insanity scared Foley off from doing commentary again.
As of Mania 27Faces: 177Heels: 106Draws: 10!!!
Undertaker climbing the ladder with one leg is pretty cool.
FUCK, Undertaker's 43 goddamn years old taking a 20 foot fall through four tables. Jesus.
As of Mania 28Faces: 183Heels: 109Draws: 10
So according to Abey, 61 percent of the faces have gone over at Mania so far
We need more heel victories, they closest was a 4 match gap at Mania 3.
Classic/popular sitcoms I never got into/hated:AliceOne Day At A TimeThe Drew Carey ShowMake Room For Daddy/The Danny Thomas ShowFamily TiesFriends (*ducks tomatoes*)FuturamaGrowing PainsGeorge LopezMaudeKate & AllieThe King Of QueensThe OfficeWill & Grace
Futurama and The Office need to be removed immediately.
Since when was George Lopez classic or popular?
Don't worry about Friends. It's tough to stomach today.
I remember hearing how awesome Okada had gotten, and all I thought at first was "That Geek from TNA?"
You must forget.....:high pitch voice:HE GOT THIS!!!....
I just never got into them, and believe me I tried.
Ryback looking like a dollar store Stone Cold complete with vest and everything.
Who's a comedian that's popular that you've never been a fan of or understood? You can't say Dane Cook or Carlos Mencia.
How can you not get into the Drew Carey Show? For shame.
– According to a PWInsider reader, Daniel Bryan’s speech at the Hall of Fame on the WWE Network was edited. Specifically the bit in which he said “what we do is fictional” was removed.So Vince will go on the Network and do a podcast literally revealing match decisions and bookings, but they edit that out of Bryan's speech?
Woody Allen. He counts, right?If not...Roseanne. Not the show, but her stand-up.
Bret got control of the editing room.
Never thought it was funny outside a few Oswald and Lewis moments. The show should have been about them, not Dilbert-wannabe Drew.
Watching Cody Hall wrestle for the first time. Needs more seasoning, but the dude is a beast!
As of Mania 29Faces: 189Heels: 112Draws: 10
DBry and Barrett just stand out completely compared to the rest of these goofs.
Did he edit it with tears in his eyes?
Looks like I will win the bet!
With a tear in his eye?
Low-hanging fruit: all those Redneck Comedy Tour guys.Also: Robin Williams, Louis CK. PPS: FUCK. BOB'S. BURGERS.
And what bet is this?
"PPS: FUCK. BOB'S. BURGERS."Dem's fightin' words.
Well, she was considered new and innovative in 1985. Then again, so was New Coke.
The poster Howmuchdoesthisguyweigh predicted there would be 15 draws. HE LOOOOOOOSES!
Mimi makes the show to me.And don't you dare slag Dilbert.
I've never understood the Louis CK love. Brb, let me go get my pitchfork for that Bob's Burgers comment.
Sports Illustrated and The Sporting News picked the Tribe to win the World Series. I'm optimistic about this season but WORLD SERIES?
Don't misunderstand, I LIKED Dilbert. Which is why I thought Drew's attempt at aping that character was so lame.
Yeah, if I hadn't seen her shtick done countless times before being exposed to her, it would probably resonate more. I do love her show though.
DIlbert...now there's a show that didn't last long enough.
I tried out the British Office but didn't really like it. Best part was Gervais' Hot Love Highway song.
SI better hope the Tribe don't run into the Giants. They're 1/1 in destroying dreams of middle-America teams with long-title droughts.
Ryback killing it in London.
As of Mania 30Faces: 194Heels: 115Draws: 10
One of the best parts of Seinfeld was the other characters constantly pointing out the lameness of Jerry's stand-up act.
I wish WWE would make up their mind on the Kliq. Are HBK, Hall, and Nash in the fold or not? One minute they are bff's with HHH then another minute they attack him out of the blue. The next minute they are texting themselves from his phone and sticking someone. I need a resolution on this.
Aren't you an A's fan?
You ever try to give your opinion on a wrestling website and someone boos you? What is the deal??/every Seinfield joke ever
Going back and watching his standup is awful. The tv show is another matter. Don't be hatin' on the tv show. That's where we fight.
Is anyone watching a PPV tonight?
I'm actually a much bigger fan of George Costanza / Larry David.
Cocaine is a hell of a drug.
Considering it was a taped Raw, that Cena/HBK match was probably actually a 37-40 minute match stretched to an hour with commercials.
Remember when he was wearing a trash bag in 90 degree weather running through traffic waving a gun? Good times.
I think it was 55 minutes without commercials included.
That's still a pretty fucking long match.
Let me finish this episode of nxt and I'd be down for one.
As of Mania 31Faces: 199Heels: 119Draws: 10In short( or long since it took me several nights to do this) the heels are getting murdered at Mania.
I stand up and yell "OVER-RATED" every time someone talks about it.
And how he disappeared for several years and re-emerged 20 pounds heavier and with the energy level of a sick panda? But yeah, no drugs here, nope. All that constant sweating and wild eyes? Glandular condition.
The total that was broadcast to us and shown on HBK's DVD was around 40 minutes
Odd year = No Giants
.607 win percentage
And the majority of their 119 wins is HHH!
Ugh. Cena doesn't even pull back on the stf. His version is so fucking shitty.
Dean Ambrose put a better STF on Cena.
The winning culture is established and I'm sure they're a little fired up about what Pablo said. So I could see us sneaking in again as a WC. But since it is an odd year and I was talking in fantasy, I could see us winning 80 games and I would be completely fine with that.
No you might be thinking of Jobber. I don't care much about baseball but there are too many Giants haters here.
I read the comic every day. Wally is awesome.
It looked like they pulled within 30 wins at one point didn't they?An interesting, but impossible task to count all matches on all televised events since a specific time.From WM to WM might actually be possible, since Raw and SD are easily DVRed.
What makes no sense is I was brought up by East Coast smartass types, and Louis CK enrages me. Pitchfork? Thanks for the offer to help, but I don't have a garden.
