  4. Pacquiao looks like a nameless henchman from a Bruce Lee movie

    ReplyDelete
  5. US PPV prices are insane. It's £19.95 in the UK.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I have one that is somewhat working at the moment but does anyone else have a totally legal TV channel the fight is on?

    ReplyDelete
  7. This week's New Generation Podcast covers King of the Ring 1996, and they're listing off the suggested names for the Mankind gimmick. Ohhhhh dear.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hard to believe that boxing is so out of the loop that they aren't putting the fight on a $9.99 per month network channel.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sadly no.

    ReplyDelete
  10. It's listed on most of them, whether or not they'll actually work won't be certain until nearer the time.

    ReplyDelete
  11. For some reason that Royal Rumble he was in really stood out for me.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Doesn't it start at 8?

    For the record, I've had a thing for Elizabeth Olsen since Martha Marcy May Marlene, a movie that's as creepy as it is boring, although it has the saving grace of her tasteful nudity.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Most places I can see it have it starting at 9.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What you are doing here is saying the opposite of what has been happening in order to express the extent to which it has been happening. Have I analyzed this correctly?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your name is Toby.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The exception that proves the rule, as Russo was doing things just to be different.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok this one got a legit LOL. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  19. How in the hell has nobody mentioned Hall and Nash?

    ReplyDelete
  20. They did down below.

    But hey, WHAT ABOUT RAVEN?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anyway to see the fight for less than $99.99?

    ReplyDelete

    Wait, so . . Dustin Rhodes AND Dustin Runnels? Crazy man.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Russo was long gone when that happened.

    Also, Rick Steiner won his post-break up feud with Scott

    ReplyDelete
  25. My official prediction... Floyd Mayweather has Manny Pacquiao beaten until Big Show music plays causing Mayweather to get distracted giving Pacquiao the opportunity to roll him up for the 3 count and the pin by the referee who forgets that this is a boxing match. The next night boxing commissioner says the decision doesn't count and sets up a rematch "belt on a pole" match for the next PPV.

    You heard it here first.

    ReplyDelete
  26. AverageJoeEverymanMay 2, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    Seems legit. Freebirds very shot 80s WWF run and his Executioner stint. Of course he was in NWA/WCW a bunch of times.

    ReplyDelete
  27. How many WCW stints did Fred Ottoman have? He had two distinct WWF runs (91-93 and briefly in 94) and one WCW run in late 93. Was there another?

    ReplyDelete
  28. He feuded with Austin for a while, he was a decent performer

    ReplyDelete
  29. happy birthday to me

  30. Dedicated UnderachieverMay 2, 2015 at 6:00 PM

    Martel did an RF shoot about 12 years ago, he said there was a lot of resistance to him as a heel and that Pat and Vince were against the idea for a long time saying he was someone the fans just didn't want to boo. Martel said he wasn't coming back and Vince changed his mind and gave him "The Model" gimmick. Martel hated it but his wife said it could be worse, he could be a rooster!

    The reason the push didn't go further was that he was developing a real estate business as his exit strategy and would take time off to do that for a while and then come back for a run when he needed more business capital.

  31. Is Gotham picked up for next year? Because, watching the most recent episode, it really needs to be cancelled

    ReplyDelete
  32. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    He could take helluva bumps for his age.

    ReplyDelete
  33. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    My tv channel is gonna show Manny/Floyd free.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'll be ordering as long as it's not EY/Angle in the main event.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No. They have a live Impact coming up on Friday then they tape the rest of May on the 9th, 10th, and 11th. They are also rumored to get another live Impact in June a couple of weeks before the PPV.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I remember seeing that show for the first time in the mid-90's, seeing Shane Douglas come out and being all "LOLWUT?"

    ReplyDelete
  38. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:05 PM

    ECIII takes the title at the PPV.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That channel must have paid a mint to get exclusive rights. Even if they'd just rebroadcast a Portuguese feed, that's a lot of cash.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think it would be great if he won the title then Aries cashed in right after and got a surprise victory. Aries/ECIII feud for the title through the rest of summer would be nice.

    ReplyDelete
  41. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:06 PM

    They only show MMA, but they're making a exception tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It's free here, too. You just have to pay $100.

    ReplyDelete
  43. He was also a commentator for a bit. He'd say "whattamaneuvar" a lot.

    It was renewed for a second season before it even premiered for a first.

    ReplyDelete
  45. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:07 PM

    Killing his undeafeated streak, no.

    ReplyDelete
  46. i wonder if game 7 will hurt the buy rate.....WWE Logic

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why not? It isn't going to last forever. Who would you have end it? Galloway?

    ReplyDelete
  48. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:08 PM

    Galloway in a long title chase.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ah, that's fair enough. I'm totally out of the loop at the moment, so wasn't sure how TNA's taping schedule was working out.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Was Big Show using the KO before the Mayweather fight? If not they should have claimed he learned it from Mayweather after the Wrestlemania match.

    ReplyDelete
  51. They better pay there production staff, by then

    ReplyDelete
  52. cabspaintedyellowMay 2, 2015 at 6:09 PM

    Gave up on the show at around midseason, but saw a trailer for the finale in which Barbara comes across as a low-rent Harley Quinn. I just find Barbara and her actress (Erin Richards) so deeply obnoxious.


    But yeah, I have nothing else to add, except Morena Baccarin is blindingly attractive.

    ReplyDelete
  53. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:09 PM

    The tv channel I'm watching is showing the HBO feed, are they gonna show the undercard or go straight for the fight?

    ReplyDelete
  54. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:10 PM

    They're doing a countdown video, I'm already hating Mayweather. What a fucking douche.

    ReplyDelete
  55. go to a bar for anywhere from $20 to $35. Torrent sites right after fir free,

    ReplyDelete
  56. "I fight for legacy" DOES THIS MEAN AN ALLIANCE BETWEEN ORTON AND MAYWEATHER?????

    ReplyDelete
  57. Shane Douglas; WWF jobber in the 80s, WCW, ECW, WWF, ECW, WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Vince McMahon: We should've done Mayweather v. Pacquiao on the Network for 10% of that price (after having them face off on RAW and Smackdown! first of course)!


    When is the fight happening this evening, any scheduled time?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Nope, no scheduled time... everyone is just supposed to guess.

    ReplyDelete
  60. In 2 hours and 42 minutes time I believe

    ReplyDelete
  61. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    Alright Manny, knock this douche out.

    ReplyDelete
  62. What is this!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I'd laugh if this Manny-Mayweather fight ended in round 1.

    ReplyDelete
  64. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:19 PM

    I'm already hating Mayweather after the promos.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I heard his camp banned Nichols and Beadle from being at the event because they have been critical of his domestic violence incidents.

    ReplyDelete
  66. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Asshole.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yeah, I'm excited about the fight, but I prefer sleep to boxing.

    ReplyDelete
  68. They monitor the pace of the PPV buys. When the pace slows to a trickle the fight starts. Gotta squeeze every dollar out,

    ReplyDelete
  69. AverageJoeEverymanMay 2, 2015 at 6:22 PM

    He had a career ending injury when he lost the TV title, that's why it was an abrupt end.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't know anything about boxing. Is this actually true?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Good question. Can't think of anyone not already mentioned in the comments or above. Did kamala have a wcw run in the early 90s? Don't think so but maybe him.

    ReplyDelete
  72. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:23 PM

    Manny seems like a nice guy in the promos, has he ever done any shit?

    Well, just got back from seeing the Avengers, and while it did have fun action sequences, laughs, good character development, and the fact that I did enjoy it, it wasn't as good as the first and probably won't be in my top 3 MCU films.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Man retired boxers sound awful... both of these guys sound brain dead

    ReplyDelete
  75. According to Colin Cowherd it is.

    ReplyDelete
  82. How about from someone who isn't a smarmy retard?

    ReplyDelete
  83. I don't think he's put that much thought into it to pick a side.

    ReplyDelete
  84. "I don't want to go" why does it need to be more complicated than that?

    ReplyDelete
  85. I'd laugh if Pacquiao won and refused to give Mayweather a rematch.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Never mind. His party is moderate, leaning conservative.

    ReplyDelete
  87. That would be cool actually

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think it's in the contract that he has to. It's part of Mayweather's contracts for all his fights.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Hogan. Wwwf, awa, wwf, wcw, wwf

    ReplyDelete

  91. I support Floyd because he is one the one insisting on drug testing and because he is much more of a showman.

    ReplyDelete
  92. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 6:30 PM

    C'mon Manny, I thought you were nice.

    ReplyDelete
  93. i would have thought Kamala also, but wikipedia says he went back and forth between the WWF and USWA and only jumped to WCW in 1994

  97. Bankruptcy. Followed by TNA's stuff being bought for a dollar by GFW/someone NOT WWE, followed by Jarrett/Joe/Styles squashing him for the title, and retiring it on the spot.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Dana White should send Conor McGregor in to interfere in the fight to cause a no decision.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I think its clear that his next fight will be THE DEMON KANE

    A storyline I wouldn't mind seeing the WWE do again is the London/Kidman one from 2004. Kidman was the heel but you can sympathize with him being scared to do the SSP.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Was there a particular reason while LOD didn't wrestle at WM 8? They dropped the titles to the Water Buddies then weren't in the title match at Mania. They just had some dumb promo with Ellering.

  151. If the rumors were true, Hall and Nash were actively trying to get out of their WCW contracts when it became evident that the company was doomed.

    Yeah, I don't think Waltman would have jumped to back to WCW.

  153. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 2, 2015 at 7:00 PM

  154. ME2 is my favorite story wise, but ME3 has the best combat controls and weapons.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Cool. I got the 3rd one with the 360 deal I got last week. I figured I should probably play 1 and 2 first.

    ReplyDelete
  156. There will be a ref or judges screw-job causing a 2nd fight

    ReplyDelete
  157. Just skip 3.

  162. I think he pulled his hamstring.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Yeah he pulled up earlier in the game, but he doesn't look right currently still. Not sure if he's holding back, or it's not right.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Should be about time for Hack a Shaq.

    ReplyDelete
  165. I always thought he looked like a brown Charles Bronson

    ReplyDelete
  166. Good idea. I played 2 and 3 first and went back to 1. ME1 took some getting used to, but it was fun after I git used to the combat controls. It's fun to play through and learn about characters that will pop up later in the series.


    Make sure you save it often just in case you make a decision that will affect the rest of the game and you want to see what would have happened had you picked another option.


    But be warned.. you have to play the second one.. SO much better than number 1.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Jim Ross:

    Nope. He doesn't fit the discussion.

  177. Nope I have the money but if I'm not willing to pay 9.99 for wwe, I ain't spending $100 for what could be a 2 minute fight. Besides I don't want any of my money going to those two assholes

  183. Christ there is an undercard? I HAVE SHIT TO DO PEOPLE

    ReplyDelete
  184. The first 11 rounds wii be a tense, tactical battle, with almost nothing between them on the cards. Then both fighters will come out for the 12th and just start passionately kissing and not stop until the bell rings. The fight will be declared a no contest, but both men will leave hand in hand as lovers.

    ReplyDelete
  185. I hear you.. I'm a PC guy so I get them at a steep discount..


    Citadel, Omega and From Ashes are the BEST ones to get if you can. Citadel is a nice long story and you get a lot of extras, Omega is fun to play, From Ashes gives my favorite new character: Javvik.
