Starting 1995 on the network tonight. Going to try to get up through the Royal Rumble tonight, then try and check out a few eps of Daredevil when it launches tonight.
I completely disagree. Her bumping is awful. I think she "gets it" and knows HOW to work, but she just hasn't picked up the Rick Rude up-and-down feeding bumps yet. Watching her take moves from AJ and Paige is/was so awkward, because she seems to take forever to fall to the mat.She tries hard, though, and is a very good heel in other areas. That's just a killer-important area in my eyes.
...fuck. That's going to be a problem for me, because I have a hard enough time sleeping as it is with Netflix on.
When I can really step back and look at a match... I still find it amazing that these beautiful women really go out there and take bumps. Think of the hot chicks you know in life and just how incredibly un-involved they may be in most activities. Then you have Brie Bella taking a bump off the apron to the floor for no real reason.
When does she really get that chance, though? Natty has the same problems and she can definitely work. I don't think it's really on them. I think if you put her in 10-12 minute NXT matches with Charlotte, Sasha, etc, she'd acquit herself just fine.
The ultimate troll. I love it.
The comparison could still be apt. Usually the eye candy Divas don't actually improve into good workers.
Trish would be the first exception. No-one thought she was going to be anything upon winning the belt. But other ladies followed suit. Candace Michelle became pretty damn good in the ring right before she decided to end her run. Of course, Marise couldn't do a whole lot, but she was an AMAZING heel in the very short time she had a chance.
I'm really sick of hearing about Mumia Abu-Jamal. I'm not on either side of the fence in regards to it, mostly because while I do have a few friends in the police force, I do know that cops can be corrupt.I'm just sick and tired and tired of hearing about people getting their panties in a bunch every time the news reports on one of his bowel movements. He's in jail, get over it.
Based off of NXT last night, looks like they're positioning Itami to carry the brand when Owens, Zayn, and Balor leave. I'm guessing the TV core will be something like Itami, Breeze, Crowe, Joe, Uhaa, Corbin.
You and me both.
You really think they're going to be bringing up Owens, Zayn, and Balor that soon?
Just more of Idiot Tits Branding at work.Try not to think about it too much.
Imma tear that shit up! I may be able to get through 3 or 4 tonight.
Balor? Definitely. Zayn? Probably. Owens? Not sure. I'd bet money all three are up by SummerSlam.
I say let Owens win the rematch with Zayn. Zayn can go to the main roster. Then do Itami/Owens and see if Itami can actually be a main guy.
http://i.imgur.com/MH4UFRb.gifI feel like Bayley has the potential to be a huge star diva-wise when she gets called up.
I'm on PST so midnight it is baby!
About time Generico gets called up, he was ready the day he signed and he's been there for 2 years. The name still sucks though.
Which...is sort of the opposite of Beast Mode. presumably, Marshawn Lynch has two modes (Like a Transformer, or those wonderful M.A.S.K toys). Regular Mode and Beast Mode. Wouldn't Brie Mode just be Brie?
Hidden video game gems round 4: the N64! Whadda y'all got?
Harvest Moon 64
Is WaveRace 64 a hidden gem?
Not pretty enough for Vince & Dunn.She'll settle into a Naomi level role.
Sami Zayn sucks? I think it's a cool name.
Maybe... I forgot about it so I guess so, I'll download it.
>Brock restored his own aura by doing crazy stuff like throwing couches at the Miz, not beating Undertaker.No, Brock's aura was cemented when he became the guy to do something no one had ever done. The Streak had become the biggest ticket in the WWE and he was the guy who ended it, clean in the ring. That made him look like a God and helped launch him to Summerslam.> The Undertaker match itself was nothing special and Brock hardly looked like a dominant killer, with everyone just remembering the ending.Missing the point. No one needs to remember the match. Brock absolutely looked like a dominant killer. He survived everything Undertaker gave him and beat him at his own game. I don't think you get how built up The Streak was and what ending it meant.>Cena-Rock 2 was nothing the world wanted to seeDisagree with this, a lot. I know a lot of people smarter fans didn't want to see the match, but Cena v. Rock is still a big drawing match and Cena had to get his hand raised in the end. I do think they should've done Cena v. Rock and Punk v. Taker, streak v. title.For a match that was "nothing the world wanted to see," 29 still did over 1 million buys.
I guess? Is that limited to those games where you take turns hitting each other in fights? Technically it's a farming simulator but it's way more fun than that would suggest with the social aspects of the whole town. You get sucked into it pretty quick.
Okay, seriously, has anyone tried Mario 64 on the Virtual Console and is it worth rebuying?
I think Owens will be down there a bit. He'll need to find a big league gimmick because he won't be able to steamroll guys on RAW and Smackdown like he does in NXT.
Sami Sane? Or is it pronounced "zwan"?
Isn't Brie Mode their way of saying she's drunk and out of control? That explains why she misses or botches a move any time she screams it out.
Army Men Sarge's Heroes might be a forgotten classic.
Huh. I'll check it out.
Never even heard of it. What kind of game?
That could literally happen tomorrow. Creative/Vince could think up a gimmick that Owens is perfect for at any time.
You get to pick which one of the 5 girls you want to pursue to marry and have a family with. And with a gameshark you can marry all five!
Whew...I read your comment too fast and thought Malcolm Jamal-Warner was in jail.I'm a big mark for Theo.
Now it sounds like Fable.
How did that happen?
I dunno. I love Owens and think he's doing some great work in NXT. I hope you're right.
When she turns on Brie Mode, she's an even WORSE wrestler.
When he kept spamming the stomp gif, it was glorious. He's an awesome heel.
As someone who has played Mario 64 on an emulator, it doesn't really work without the original controller. But I think it's really overrated to begin with.
Los Angeles Kings lose tonight and they miss the playoffs. From champs to chumps in 10 months.I'm cheering for em cause fuck the Flames.
Zayn like Billy Zane.It doesn't look that hard to pronounce.
I'm keen to the idea of introducing Owens as Bray Wyatt's muscle for an IC title feud or something, only Owens actually doesn't give a fuck about Bray at all, was just using him to get his foot in the door, and then he turns on him fairly quickly.
I feel like you've talked about him before...
Runnin' from the cops!!!
I can say from experience that if you think you tore it you didn't.
International Track and Field 2000
AV Club reviewed the first five episodes and gave it a B-. Lots of hype on this show. I hope it rocks.
Disagree with the "really overrated", agree with the controller.
Rush 2, stunt mode on practice.
And San Jose's gonna miss the playoffs for the first time in a decade.
He's still relevant? RATM was making a big deal about him when I was in middle school. I'm 33.
I think they should just transfer the Owens/Zayn feud to WWE TV. They would have an instant hot midcard feud without doing any of the work.
Man, if they let Owens roll on the mic, he's going to turn himself into a big star.I just hope he's healthy because he had some hard years on the indies.
Okay, I thought it was Sami Sane, like he's insane. That's not too bad then.
I was running to catch the train and jumped off the steps. I landed very poorly apparently.
The green screen on this ep of Raw with Gorilla and HBK announcing is hilariously bad.
Damn. Are you able to walk right now?
What I did in TEW was introduce Zayn around Royal Rumble time, had him beat Bray for the IC title at WrestleMania, and then Bray talks about some vague "guy" coming in to destroy Sami for him. So Owens debuts at Extreme Rules, kicks Sami's ass, destroys some jobbers, and then when Bray's cutting one of his goofy promos, Ownes just drops him with a powerbomb and then beats Zayn for the title at the May PPV.
It's a million times better than Bull Dempsey. Finn Balor is growing on me but I still think it's lame too.
I got X-Rays today and the doctor said bad sprain or partial ACL. I buggered it end of March and I'm still having a lot of issues, which is the concern. I get an MRI Tuesday!Who knew going to the orthopedist was better than going to the poor people clinic?
Finn Balor is god awful.
I'm not surprised the Kings are faltering. They've played a lot of hockey in the past few years, going far in the playoffs if not winning it and the Stanley Cup Playoffs are fucking grueling. And pretty much all their core players played in the Olympics, too. That's a lot of hockey and missing out might be best for them. Next year they could be monsters with proper rest and training.
That's their own fault. They blew that 3-0 lead last year and didn't make any moves to fix things when everyone could see the players they had weren't working well together.
I'm still shocked they even signed him.
"If you're hair is NAPPY, AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY!"I missed the Prime Time Players.
Oh yeah, '94 and '95 were loaded with these egregious green screen intros. In 1996 they just had Vince and Jerry quickly change in the back and do the intros live.
Doing my annual "Give Fallout 3 Another Chance" Tour. Bought this game the day it came out and have never made it more than 3 hours in.
I'm curious as to how it works with the Wii U controller. I would think the layout is almost similar?
Truly, a man without fear.
Yes, but I limp and it sucks. If I walk for too long, then I feel it. I can't bend it at all. I want to sue Metro North but I think the fact that I refused medical attention at the time to watch Wrestlemania kills my case. Damn you Sting!
So misused. They get put back together randomly, I don't recall a storyline reason for Darron to just suddenly trust Titus again, then they go like 3 weeks without even being used again.
IIRC he picked that himself. Prince Devitt, or ever Fergal Devitt isn't really any better though.
Those guys should have been tag champs. Sure, they aren't the best workers but damn if they don't have fun charisma.
Tonight's Kings/Flames is huge. Probably will decide who gets that 8 spot.
It's an amazing game, really.
I love those Bethesda games. However, I think I got more play out of New Vegas.
Nice! I like that.
So....people were talking about Trish's ass last night. http://i.imgur.com/4W3o3ZO.gifMMMM-HMMM.
They call me a Man Without Hope. Verily I say I am a Man Without Fear.
Did you get an MRI? X-rays are useless for ligament issues.
Loved Fallout 3 and put in more than 100 hours.Got bored of New Vegas within 2 hours and never played it again.
No Hope Macklin?
Yeah, that probably does kill your case.
What about just Balor? He'll probably lose the Finn soon.
I'm looking at the positive: NO KINGS, BABAY!!!! HUSS! HUSS! HUSS!
MRI is next Tuesday. I've only had an X-Ray.
I play it on a knockoff PS2 controller, and it doesn't quite work.
I feel like, although it's become a cult phenomenon, Conker's Bad Fur Day was a hidden gem when it came out.
But Vancouver is back :(
We missed you
Vince - What about Bator!Get it pal?
From there I stretched it out to SummerSlam, where Zayn faced Owens in a match where if he lost, he could no longer challenge Kevin for the title. Sami fights hard, but Owens wins with some slight shenanigans. Enter El Generico.
Kids love us and the dance
He's my bro, so it's good
I wasn't buying Titus as a heel. It didn't work.
Not a bad mix there. I'd leave Owens down there for a bit longer, but then again, I am utterly terrified of what Vince/Dunn will do to ANY of these guys who get called up, after The Ascension debacle.
I just hate Metro North and want to collect money from them. I'm fine otherwise.
By Day: Andy Dwyer Possum TacklerBy Different Time of Day: Burt Macklin, FBIBy Night: Man Without FearBy Later Time of Night: #1 Blog Poster No Hope Macklin.
The 4 Stages of Macklin
The Roadie was such a perfect gimmick. Genius.
Well, I only does what Vince tells me
Yeah, Candace was actually developing into something interesting, and I still wish she'd have stuck around a bit longer.
I think they win tonight and saturday vs the Shorks, but Winnipeg wins tonight and clinches and Calgary beats Winnipeg saturday and that's that for the Kings.
I watched a review of it on IGN, they said that the controller actually mimics the old controller perfectly.
These nappy headed hoes...
I should love this game. Liked Oblivion, loved Skyrim. I just never could latch onto this one. Giving it another go.
lol Gorilla just named checked Kevin Dunn. So weird to hear his name said out loud on WWE TV.
Isn't a WiiU controller basically a PS2 controller with a screen in the middle?
But how established are they outside of geeks like us? People who don't watch NXT won't care about Zayn out of the gate
You're just too darn likable!
Surprised Vince hired him back after both he and Double J walked out in mid-1995.
His match with Waltman at IYH2 is one of those forgotten classics.
Three Live Kru in TNA were entertaining for a while.
I'll have to take your word for it, because fuck TNA.
I wonder if it is worse than the MBTA in Boston. The MBTA is horrid.
It was R-Truth, Road Dogg, and Konnan fucking around. They did some funny vignettes.
However long it took you to type that sentence is too much time to spend thinking about it.
For the most part, but the second analog mimics the c-button camera perfectly according to the video review.
I live in one of the few places where the public transportation is actually pretty good.
Dunn was on screen a few times during the "Event Center" portions of Superstars/Challenge. He looked even odder than he does currently.
Okay, that makes sense. The camera was my main problem with that game to begin with though.
Alright, I am hungry and want some shitty fast food to eat and my only options are Wendy's and Burger King. Where do I go and what do I get?
Wendy's. Double Cheeseburger. Chicken Nuggets. Heaven.
Wendy's, Bacanator. Burger King sucks.
You can never go wrong with the classic Whopper. Just tell them to go easy on the mayo.
Why is Johnny Ace on this 1995 ep of Raw dressed in red, white and blue? Oh wait, nevermind. It's just Super Dave Osbourne.
Whatever happened to Michael Cole being on Raw monday night? Did they come to their senses that he should sell for more than a week? Or are they booking on a napkin again?
Dude, a napkin would be WAY too permanent!It's a dry erase board.
I always ask to do something, that way they make it fresh
Push Zubaz sign on SD. Okay, that's pretty funny.
I watched Brock beat an old man who was gassed two minutes into the matchDestroying Cena had something to do with credibility, but ending the streak really didn't do much for me.
Can't go wrong with chili or the baked potato.
order a pizza.
I'd go face deep in the Wendy's Girl's baconator, ifyaknowhatimean
How do they establish anything? By using videos, promos, and the announcers.
The pizza places around me suck. One of them got shut down for a week by the board of health fairly recently.
That game had a lot of hype before it came out.
HHH name dropped him on the show where Jericho "beat" him for the title. He yells, "KEVIN DUNN, SHOW THE REPLAY ON THE TRON!!!"
Same here. I HATE onions, so that's always my excuse.
They'd get bigger responses than guys like StarDust, Barrett, Harper, etc.
Everyone thought Brock was losing. When he ended the streak, it just shocked me.
Onions do not belong on a burger, IMO
...I miss fast food. But I feel like my body would just betray me if I even tried Wendy's.
I'd like to put my dick in her ass.Sorry, subtlety isn't my thing...
Just posted on R/SquaredCircle: You gotta admit, the coincidence is...unsettling to say the least. https://youtu.be/YjvNTT87OCk
And no shoot interview poll this week. The Cooler won the BoD March Madness Pool and gets to pick the next four shoots. Next Week is the 1986 WWE Timeline as told by George Steele
I rarely eat it but tonight I have no other options.
I've been on a nostalgia kick lately, and now that I'm thinking about, I cannot remember a single thing about Twilight Princess, so I'm debating on throwing that in again.
Every one of them is owned by a complete scumbag anyway, don't give them your money.
I asked them to put extra mayo on a chicken sandwich once and it looked like they just bukkaked all over it.
That day the first train I was going to take ended up being 10 minutes late so I came back later.They said this train was running late so I sat in my car. Then the train inexplicably showed up. And now I walk with a limp
Barrett and Sheamus as Euro bullies is awesome.
Neither does mayo.
But that where the burgers come from in the commercials.....
Oh it shocked the helll out of me.It just seemed DUMB. Neither guy looked like he had ever wrestled a match before in that train wreck. Not to mention, even though he won, he was super lukewarm going in--I figured he'd lose in one or two more matches because that's what Lesnar had been doing for 2 years.Destroying Cena like a jobber made it clear they meant it.
Well it's the Big Show...and that's it for me.
I hate all the 3D Zelda games.
The worst thing is how HUGE Eddie is when the video starts. Jesus christ.
In SvR '06 one storyline specifically ends with Undertaker chokeslamming Eddie Guerrero in a casket (somethign where he steals the urn and pins it on your player). The game came out 2 days before he died.
Was just about to post the exact same thing.
Has Scott Keith's archives on Inside Pulse disappeared for anyone else?
Sounds about right.
Just got a random Miz/Draft Kings ad on the network.
Went to Burger King in Argentina and they gave me packets of mayo...for my fries.
Argentinians are weird.
Good by comparison to Summer Rae, Cameron, and Alicia Fox.
Insert Pulp Fiction quote...
Yes. Just tried and every page comes up "not found. "
I never even bother with IP, the formatting is totally fucked.
So 2 weeks in a row they change the Smackdown main event?Bah!
I can no longer tell which is Xavier and which is Kofi when I'm not wearing my glasses.
Big E is AWESOME
It's the hair I swear!
And matching outfits.
Those meaty thighs!Seriously the poor bastard can't even walk without them rubbing together constantly.
There should be some wrestling rule book, the worse the gimmick, the more they at least try to let you get over in the ring. Meanwhile these poor goofs have a lousy gimmick and short, choppy matches all the time
I can't tell who is who either. Not because all black people look alike, I just don't give a fuck.
15 points back in the BoD Fantasy Hockey League Finals. Gotta do it tonight.
It's something to put on a T-Shirt.
I use it because it is easier to find his Raw recaps there instead of here.
