Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O'Doomers!

Wanted to hit on a bunch but don't have time.

Watched the Savage doc. I didn't feel the need to get too much into his wrestling so I enjoyed more of the total life aspect they went with. Even though Lanny is probably covering for him a bit in terms of the Elizabeth stuff I appreciate that younger brother had his back.

It was good stuff but a lot of it hit home because I've driven down the road in Seminole he had his fateful accident hundreds of times. I knew the complex on Sunset Beach where he had his condo. I've been to the Ferg's sports bar referenced many times. I know some of the people that wrote the stories in the newspaper clips so it was kind of nice to hear all these local people in my community speak so highly of him. And the fact that he was, at least by the accounts in the documentary, happy and committed to spending his days with his family and wife makes the sudden death all that much more sad.

Anyway also watched WM a second time, this time on the big screen and the Orton-Rollins was much better than I thought. Really good stuff. Still a great main event that told a pretty good little story. Good stuff.

I wonder where they are going to go with some guys. What do you do with Rusev if you want Cena to have a good title reign? There's not a lot of money in a heel chasing a face for a title. And with Rollins holding the World strap that won't be a possible route.

What do you do with Bray? He's completely directionless. I think they need to get the Wyatt Family back in another form. Obviously Harper is fine without him but Rowan could come back. Or I suggested in a thread to form a new family with real-life brother Bo Dallas and a third guy like Rhyno, who can be used as enforcing veteran to back the young guys and help them get over while taking some falls for them. Or go the full Raven route and give him a Flock. Throw Zach Ryder and Heath Slater and other guys that aren't doing anything. His gimmick is one that he needs to be leading a stable of some sort.

    Why was there a rain delay in Miami today? They have a retractable roof!?

    I'm more excited for Podcast Is Jericho with John Cena, since I'm expecting a total glad-handing shitshow.

    I figured they'd have that shit closed already if they expect rain in the forecast. Though I guess it's south Florida so it rains all the time.

    The BoD Fantasy Baseball League is in full swing, and after a hot start thanks to Troy Tulowitzki, Stranger's Dangers have come down to earth. My opponent, thankfully, has a shittier offense than I do. Now if only somebody would use a closer.

  15. I just started listening to him again lately and he seems quite insufferable. Plus Fozzy sucks.

    Astros game black out here. I thought MLB.tv was lifting the blackout restrictions. I guess that didn't play out.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I concur with your Bray idea. Finally give him a cult, and have him be evil, manipulating scum while doing so. Bayley remains available for this.



    And I'm watching Dook be champs of your world again, screw Raw.

  54. Danielle said that like a year ago and everyone on the blog shit on her for "fantasy booking". Beware. :(

    ReplyDelete
  55. The Bray character is dead! He's a complete loser than never did anything in WWE. Time for a repackage.

  56. Wisconsin wins, I win the BOD March Madness Pool.

    Only watches NXT and the PPV's crew checking in.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Character had so much potential and they flushed it all away. IMO, he was dead before WM though.

    ReplyDelete
  62. And now ESPN is stealing Kimmel's mean tweets bit. They didn't even acknowledge it.

  70. But sexton :/

    ReplyDelete
  71. Speaking of Bayley she just reminds you of the type of girl who is a freak in private i.e. standing reverse anal, but could also get a bit obsessed with you i.e. bunny rabbit boil.

    ReplyDelete
  72. They went years without crediting outside sources for scoops/stories, so it's just another day at The World Wide Leader.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I vote for Vince to do commentary. At least you will finally understand what he's trying to say with this stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  74. and I doubt Kimmel will call them out on it like Daniel Tosh did.

    ReplyDelete
  75. cabspaintedyellowApril 6, 2015 at 5:50 PM

    He'd probably leave a script with Hayes in Gorilla of stuff to shout in his headset.

  87. Sexton with someone else to talk to's still better than Cole.

    ReplyDelete
  88. If Aoki hits 4 HR's, maybe... :(

    ReplyDelete
  89. so his name is what al pacino said 5000 times in "scent of a woman"

    ReplyDelete
  90. A ton a singles and doubles is how I see us doing our scoring and MAYBE a homer.

    ReplyDelete
  91. He's not as tough as Bray and White.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm tapping out on RAW tonight if it starts with the Authority.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I really liked the mid 90s heel Lawler. After "puppies" he became unbearable. Then in the PG era and face turn, he just became lame.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Me, my wife and a couple of buddies are having a couple of pre show drinks before the Testament/Exodus show. You Doomies have an awesome night

    ReplyDelete
  95. Yeah, that's how it's gotta be done. Pence out is a huge loss.

    ReplyDelete
  96. cabspaintedyellowApril 6, 2015 at 5:55 PM

  103. I'd actually like it if Rollins Honky Tonked his way to next year's WM remaining champ. I doubt he will make it past Summerslam though.

    Byron Saxton is terrible. But it's the brand of terrible that tastes more palatable than the the shit sandwich we were getting before last week. And why the fuck are they still rehashing WrestleMania results? It's been more than a week, people know by now. Let's get a move on.

    Seth Rollins can out-douche the bastard spawn of Kim Kardashian and Kanye.

  180. Thaddeus MountainApril 6, 2015 at 6:07 PM

    For some reason I read this as Otunga, Ryback, and Reigns.

  182. I think Willie Mays would object to Show being labelled as the Greatest Giant of All Time.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Kane was there!
