T-minus 3 hours until NXT live!
Good news all around today. Ric Flair is in town for a big comic convention and "SoggyBootyHole" just reblogged something I posted on twitter!
Soggy booty hole got way too much laughter out of me
Marvel should cast Brock Lesnar as one of the gods in the next Thor
The internet is boring today.
It was a symbolism! He was mad!
Get him to come to your house and host a meet and greet. Put a bottle of Ten High under a net and wait.
That SI piece about the Collision in Korea was awesome
http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sm7sdfI like Batista.
That's only good for a minute or two.
Going to finally have an old RoH review up tonight as I review Bitter Friends, Stiffer Enemies
Batista vs Brock is still a thing that should happen on ppv
I was there
Meh. 10 years too late.
Corino/Homicide was an awesome match. Total bloodbath.
I got some of Corino's blood on my ticket
Even working from home these 60 hour weeks suck. This upcoming California excursion is going to be great.
Not a bad show. Some of the undercard stuff was underwhelming but the 1st Joe vs. Punk match was decent as was Xavier/Daniels. The scramble match stuff just doesnt hold up well at all.
It was always fun live. The Lo Ki Maff ending was awkward especially since it was my last live ROH show for four months
Yeah, that wasnt all that great. Even the 20 replays from a few different angles watching on DVD didnt sell me much. Not much of a Maff fan anyway but at least he improved at that point.
where are you going in california?
Going to see Rise Against in a couple hours. Pumped.
I'm doing a circuit from Fresno to SF to LA to see family and friends, a couple ballparks, etc.
Hulu is getting worse with ads. In one 45 minute show they had five ad breaks, some of which had 2 and even 3 ads consecutively.
I gave up my subscription with them. Was not impressed with the service.
Off for my small Treat Yo Self day, Ex Machina then dinner at this nice Mexican place near the theater, then back to it for Mad Max
Off to my small Treat Yo Self day, Ex Machina then dinner at this nice Mexican place near the theater, then back to it for Mad Max
Main villain has a guy under his employ whose sole job is to ride around in his caravan and play a flame throwing guitar.
I glimpsed that dude in the trailer and for a lack of a better word, fuckin bitchin
I'm not one to complain about it normally when it's usually a couple of 15 second ads... But I'm paying for this...
This sliders episode has them in a world where dinosaurs are still alive so do we get any action packed scenes if them running around avoiding t-rexs or raptors ala jurassic park? Nope. 90% of this episode is spent with the gang sitting inside an empty cave.
I think it depends on the show and the contract negotiated. For example, Blacklist regularly has 4-5 ads at a time, but Flash normally has two. I also look at it as paying for the streaming service and all its content, not ad free programs.
Just finished the HBO documentary on the Cannibal Cop. Ewwww.
TV budgets are not the same as film budgets. Especially in the 90's.
Uh...are we sure that title isn't attached to a porn film?
Dinos cost money.
They obviously spared an expense.
So...he was a cop who ate people? Nuthin gets by me.
Giancarlo Stanton hit one over that HR celebration thingy in Marlins Park, days after going over and out at Dodger Stadium. Unreal
Hammond was a fucking liar. Spared no expense...except on security, door locks, fail safe systems, staffing...
Actually he spent money on all those things, it was Nedry fucking shit up, not the security failing.
That's because in the book, he was the villain.
I'm sure if those people had cooperated fully and minded their P's & Q's he wouldn't have eaten them.
Did he like dark meat or white meat?
But even then there were only like five people in the server room watching the whole park. And like three wardens on the field.
I wished they kept it that way (I've read it) as opposed to the misguided fool in the movie
Because 1. the park wasn't open. 2. most of the personal left the island because of the storm.
Was a really cool book. Dude had some great stuff.
The amount of people that actually give a shit what led to the downfall of WCW is so miniscule that it doesn't really matter. He also says it in things like shoot interviews and legends of the round table where like 1 percent of the audience hear it.
Nice! Enjoy your jaunt here.
If anyone's up for a beatdown, GGG is fighting some guy tonight on HBO in a few hours. He should end the show in about 5 or 6 rounds.
Only 41 million for Mad Max this weekend.
Just came across some '87 World Championship Wrestling episodes. Does anyone remember the angle where Jim Cornette lit a fireball in Ronnie Garvin's face, which led to Jimmy Garvin turning babyface?
Wikipedia puts the budget at $150 million. I suppose it may still make that in theaters; should actually turn a profit when it hits home video.
Pitch perfect 2 is destroying them
Vaguely. I remember Jimmy running into the locker room and going nuts.
So... In honor of tomorrow's ppv, should we do a May ppv tonight? I nominate Judgment Day 2000.
...damn.Yet, oddly enough, if I had to choose between those two films, I would go with Pitch Perfect 2. I thought the first one was ok, and I'm not exactly a fan of the Max Max films. Haven't seen them, actually.
HA! One of the girls has a weight problem! I haven't laughed this much since Paul Blart 2! People suck at liking comedy.
I don't think we should be honoring that stink pile called a PPV tomorrow. But I like where your head is at nonetheless.
That's a bummer.
That's the Iron Man Match, right?That's a really damn good show.
WWE is really lucky I work from home and need background noise.
Yes sir. Plus the Radicalz in a triple threat and Benoit/Jericho submission match.
Problem is you need to double the budget to be profitable. So just making $150 ain't gonna cut it.
That submission match is crazy underrated. Or maybe it's properly rated, idk how it's rated but it's really awesome.
Honoring is a bad choice of words, but you know what I meant.
In order to besmirch that PPV tomorrow.
Watching through some Attitude Era stuff, two matches or feuds I really wish we had gotten but the timing didn't work out are Ken Shamrock vs. Kurt Angle and Owen Hart vs. Kurt Angle. Both would have been tremendous.
I know, I got upset seeing those numbers.
I also have come across the episode of World Wide where Garvin beats Flair for the title.
Does that include today's numbers?
I've read and heard a few times that plenty of films hope to break even in theaters, and then make money in the home video market. I doubt that's what these folks had in mind, but I'd say there's still hope.
He'll be one of the all time best to never win the big one.
Jimmy Garvin wasn't so gorgeous, looking back.
So...it's either underrated or properly rated. Well said. :-P
American Pharoah just dominated. Damn.
You like my meltzer impression?
Was just about to make a Meltzer joke, fuck you.
The outrage when cops shoot people. Imagine cannibalism?
Damn as in, damn that was impressive. Not damn I just bet the house and lost.
Just don't mess with a dog and everything will be fine.
I was in the grocery store today and I saw two girls, probably no older than 12 or 13, pick up and analyze the Fifty Shades of Grey DVD.Is this really something that pre-teens are interested in? Or this like when us guys would check out Skinemax when everyone was gone to bed?
exactly the same.
S'okay Bobby. Someday you'll get on my level.
The latter, like when I used to swipe my mom's Harlequin porno books
Should do well overseas and can hopefully make up some ground
That movie isn't bad because of what's in it.It's bad because it's a horrible film.
Ahh, nothing like a good supermarket bodice-ripper. Those $10 words like "undulating", the silly plots....
That's a pretty good turnout for a franchise that's been dead for three decades; it's just a really hard sell as a hard-R action movie. There's only so much ceiling for that.
I have utterly no desire to see it, and I'm a kinky man.
It's incredibly tame. You'll see harder stuff on Game of Thrones
I forgot how big the AWA rings were.
Even before the storm, there's no one there. There's like two other people in the room when Sam Jackson tells everyone to haul ass
Not surprising. Also out on that show, btw.But, fucking 50 Shades started out as Twilight fan fiction. I'd rather read WWE Creative scripts.
Kurt and Owen did some work together. The Lion's Den match and Dungeon match stick out.
Hey...did you guys hear something? :: looks around ::Thought I heard a Brazillian accent.:: looks down ::Oh, there you are. Hey kid.
Isn't that Shamrock and Owen?
The major league of professional wrestling.
Blow a load in your gf's mouth yet?
From border to border and coast to coast, part of the reason I'm a mat wrestling dork!
Well Hoss... I've had some beers today...
A gentleman doesn't kiss and tell.
Does anyone know if they censored any fan signs on the 1998 RAW episodes they posted to the Network? It seems like every show had a "[Insert name of friend] IS GAY!" poster.
The only thing I remember about AWA was watching just a bit on ESPN. I can recall The Midnight Rockers and The Destruction Crew. Larry. I think that's about it.
Keep it down, I'm undercover.
I wasn't asking about a kiss.
God I miss the late 90's.
Apter mags were the access I had to the AWA when I was kid. Living in the Northeast, Verne's show wasn't making it there.
Quick, another recent comedy. You guys are 3/3 so far with Pain & Gain and the two Jump Street movies.
I've seen some blurred out signs.
uh. Then you may want to change your screen name.
And he ain't no gentleman! HEYO!
http://i.ytimg.com/vi/PnCmM7A46yU/hqdefault.jpgHere's your avatar when you lose out bet.
I was sold on most of those NWA guys by their music. So if I watched them for the first time on the Network, I would probably think they all suck.
Well, that removes any reason for me to answer. I couldn't get through the first and had no desire to see the other two.
Nope. You put way too much pressure on this recommendation with the 3/3 claim. Not gonna do it.
What are your thoughts on Pain & Gain?I thought it was great.
Ah, that's probably it. Someone had a "Clinton 3:16" sign on the last RAW I watched (which I'll post a recap for on Tuesday) and I found that really funny because that's not something I expected to see.
Low expectations rock.
LOL I like it. Straight to the point.
That was what I saw as a kid. It was so different from the WWF at the time. I loved the Crew, Badd Co. and Midnight Rockers. There's also a kickass hour-long Bockwinkel - Hennig I still watch from time to time.
:: high five ::
Utterly absurd and hilarious. Rock stole the show.
There are definitely more people. You see a quick scene and there is a line of dialogue about people going to the docks. Plus, remember all the scientists in the lab?
So judgment day 2000 at say... 7?
I do.Do you remember when Ric Flair got to third base with a mannequin?
Oh, yeah. Badd Co. They were fun.
Prepare to use that for a whole month.
If he would have said "anyone got a comedy recommendation" I'd be in there like swimwear. But he said we're on a roll. I don't wanna break that streak.
The hell...you two have a bet? Details, please.
I lived in a pretty sweet spot for wrestling. Since St. Louis was the "capital" of the NWA Vince, Crockett and Verne went hard as SLWC was dying. On a good weather day I even got Memphis.
I love Bob Carpenter's baseball scorebook, but it takes me about 30-40 minutes to setup a game in it before I proceed to watch it (but part of that's due to me wanting to note all kinds of small things). Looking forward to Yanks-Royals tonight
7 PST 7 EST or 7 CST?
So, you're saying you're not much of one for pressure shots, so to speak.
I wonder what happened to that loudmouth manager.
I love how they used Gangstas Paradise in the end credits.
That's not very clutch, Macklin
I must have totally missed the point of the film. I just didn't get it on any level.
Macklin, Man Without Clutch.
Hey, another successful Catfish. Only reason the guy was being secretive was because he was ashamed he lived in a trailer.
I can't remember the last time a PPV felt as irrelevant as tommorrow's.HeavyWeight Title 4-way match - Rollins will almost certainly win after Authority Run in, just like last PPVRusev vs Cena - Cena isn't quitingNew Day vs Team brass wing - New day is gonna to win of courseSheamus vs Ziggler - Sheamus is probably winningKing Barrett vs Nevile - Barett's probably winning continuing his KOTR pushWyatt vs Ryabck - Who cares?No IC title matchEssentially nothing feels important at this PPV and it seems like almost certainly no issue will be settled and everything will be the same on Monday as it is today. Several of these matches are rehashes. A few of these matches could certainly be good, but why is this worthy of a PPV?
I guess it went over your head. Which means you are no Drax.
So, you don't drive a stick much? (innuendo intended)
So it would seem.I seriously just wasn't entertained by the first half or so. Turned that shit off.
We didn't have Cinemax, but I discovered that when I tuned the VCR just right, I could sort of record a viewable dub.
In the network era? Absolutely. There is a lot of good shit on that card.
Whatever time zone is normally used for these things.
Thanks to the NYC spanish channels (of all places), I was able to get Championship Wrestling from Florida, Mid Atlantic and Los Angeles. Since I was a UHF safecracker as a kid, if I got an out of state channel that had wrestling, it was always WWF.
The company has just become so incompetent building anything except WrestleMania (and they are even showing signs of cracks doing that now - look at this years mediocre build for some matches). As someone noted earlier today, even if you want to do "showcase" matches on RAW, let those things only run for 5-6 mins or bait and switch people.
That's why they gave us Elimination Chamber, too. Even WWE knows how worthless tomorrow's show is.
I've been known to make a stick shift once or twice. I don't know what I'm saying!
Good on ya.
You might try... I don't know... Due Date?
Let's see if anyone else trickles in before we set a time but I'm in.
Trained by a snake, ended up pitching yoga.
Sells yoga now. I saw an infomercial for it with Jake Roberts singing its praises.
...and...I'm just gonna let that one die.
Bockwinkel was 52 years old for that Hennig match. Amazing. If he was younger, the Million Dollar Man gimmick would have been perfect for him. Wrong place, wrong time.
Hoss... you gotta check out The Road Warrior. You basically get the whole 1st movie in the first 1:30 of it. I liked watching Mad Max almost as a prequel, I think it works better.
That has me on guard. You never know when a PPV is gonna be awesome out of nowhere. Going in, WM31 looked like it was gonna be in the bottom 25% percentile for WMs but it ended up being one of the greatest of all time. Who would have guessed it. Maybe we will get 3 **** at this PPV. It seems really random anymore when things like that happen.
Barrett/Neville and Sheamus/Ziggler seem like they could be very fun. But this one is a skip for me.
On the plus side most of those matches should be pretty good. I hope they start using some of these B PPVs for angles.
Schindler's List? Oh, wait, you said recent....(I'm so sorry.....)
The last time a PPV was as irrelevant? Post WM PPV, and every other PPV outside of Summerslam, Royal Rumble, and WM.
Greatest of all time? Can't say I'm with you on that. The main event delivered, and there was the moment with Rousey; aside from that, it was largely average to forgettable for me.
Best case scenario I think the 4 Way, Ziggler/Sheamus and Neville/Barrett could max out at **** but that would have to be a hell of a night.
Isn't this just copied and pasted from every ppv the last 15 years? I could have sworn last month was the most irrelevant ppv. And I also thought that this exact same thing was said about mania and everyone left that show with lots of praise.
Eh. I may netflix it or something at some point.
Preteens are on the internet. Fifty Shades is all over the internet. Yeah, preteens will be curious.
Vince is that you?
You got ice water flowing through those veins.
Can't be; no mention of BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK body drops.
One of the greatest, not the greatest which is of course 17, with 19 close behind. I'd probably rank it about 7th or 8th of all time. Its not just the match quality. The booking felt perfect from beginning to end. And it had one of my favorite endings of any WM ever. There simply wasn't anything about it, and few things really great, which makes for a fantastic show.
Judgment Day 2000 sound nice to anyone else? Already me and Bobby in. We're two pretty cool cats.
I thought I'd take that joke for a spin, but I actually do feel bad...
I meant Vince Jordan.
Yardwork, man. I never thought I'd be spending so much of my hard earned money on dirt, grass, and water.
Cena Rusev can be **** as well, but you're right, that would take one hell of a night. But its always possible, even on a show that looks like complete shit going in.
What streaming service?
I used to find something fulfilling in mowing my lawn. Now it's just a fucking chore.
I remember Eyes Wide Shut was suppose to be some kind of kinkfest.Too long, too boring; one of the worst movies I've ever dropped money on.
:: shrug :: Glad you enjoyed it.
John Cena poop jokes...https://www.facebook.com/34835977009/videos/10153294860837010/
I'm not being a dick and calling you out on a typo but "Team Brass Wing" made me laugh like an idiot.
Nope, every PPV from 2000 to 2001 was pretty relevant. Especially Wrestlemania 17.
wait..."in there like swimwear"?:: bitchslap ::
