    So Meltzer is teasing something HUGE for tonight.

    https://twitter.com/davemeltzerWON/status/601118122075037697



    I wonder if it's even NXT related, or if it's some random MMA nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Greatest Book of The Old Testament?

    After Ecclesiastes, nothing even deserves second place.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  12. You can't really call anything nonsense in comparison to Sportz Entertainment.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I still feel we missed out by not casting Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wonder if he was in full makeup at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Shelton BenjaminMay 20, 2015 at 5:31 PM

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha, Ryan Murphy killed his account

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  24. So I've decided that if I'm still around to get that $2000 bonus, I'm going to buy a new laptop, and if not, then I'm moving to Plano, TX.

    ReplyDelete
  25. How long until Vince makes Renee Young upgrade to Double Ds

  31. Whoa, that was super cheesy.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Um... that shit just writes itself. Would have been incredible.

    ReplyDelete

  42. Art Macklin, Man Without FearMay 20, 2015 at 5:34 PM

    Good news there. That was dreadful. Won't miss that noise.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He went "No Real Scotsman" on me before he jumped, too.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. Was the implication there that Kevin Owens beat up Itami?

    ReplyDelete
  47. cabspaintedyellowMay 20, 2015 at 5:35 PM

    Just the pre-cum.

    ReplyDelete

    The peach color with the black pocket square is what's gathering my ire.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The tip-off show.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I once saw them converse about if safe sex was "really" necessary or if you were fine to go "raw dog".

    ReplyDelete
  55. The only guy that could make that work is Mark Henry.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:36 PM

    The hard sell.

    ReplyDelete
  57. It has begun https://twitter.com/TheReal_Virgil

    ReplyDelete
  58. Vince is scared of finger guns. Fact.

    ReplyDelete
  59. He was because he met him right before he went out for his match.

    ReplyDelete
  60. So, HHH said Itami would be 'represented' in the 3 way. And the very first thing on the show is announcing it is a singles match now.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Or old school heel Vince. He loved a nice salmon sport coat.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:38 PM

    Really, would any of us tell Marl otherwise. Wigs would be split.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'll leave it to your imagination what they decided was the answer.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wait, he's not homeless?

    ReplyDelete
  66. NXT warrants a pre show?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Leviticus.

    Only because if I see people quoting Leviticus as a primer on morality, it helps me determine that they are a total fucking nut job,

    ReplyDelete

  69. The dude who said Joe is going to be there tonight hasn't been wrong yet so I'm still holding out hope.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Would have been sweet as hell if it were Joe.

    ReplyDelete
  71. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:39 PM

    Six people apparently paid him.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Was it the Reddit guy?

    ReplyDelete
  73. It wouldn't be hard to hide Joe before the event if they didn't want to tip their hand, so I'd buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  74. http://deadspin.com/jamie-foxxs-doc-rivers-impression-is-perfect-1705879008

    His national anthem at Mayweather/Pacquiao was horrible, but Jamie Foxx's John Legend and Doc Rivers impressions are SPOT on.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Nice video package for the women's match. I approve.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Mets was thrown out, but where one falls...another will rise

    I eagerly await this new guys eventual meltdown

    ReplyDelete
  77. There appears to be a ghost behind Saxton.

    ReplyDelete
  78. ....is it safe?

    ReplyDelete
  79. This video package is better than most on the main show for the men.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Minor point and likely means nothing, but I'm curious what Joe's music would be.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I like how we've woven the dancing jigging crap into Becky's story. Plus she is ridiculously hot.

    ReplyDelete
  82. It's Tazz. The mood is about to change for old Byron.

    ReplyDelete
  83. When we say Us, you say O

  84. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:43 PM

    Why are we getting a stat box on a pre-show announcer?

    ReplyDelete
  85. If it's Taz he's standing on about 3 apple boxes.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Damn did Dusty decide to lose a lot of weight or is he really sick... https://twitter.com/RealKingRegal/status/601170566029123585

    ReplyDelete
  87. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:43 PM

    I love Maffew's Oompa Loompa intro for Taz on Botchamania.

    ReplyDelete
  88. We are only a couple shows away from Renee Young just being topless.

    ReplyDelete
  89. It's like Corey Graves sees all the Suicide Squad Joker pics and then acts accordingly.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Didn't he get a gastric band recently?

    ReplyDelete
  91. I approve of Renee's attire.

    ReplyDelete
  92. And Twitter deletes his account after 2 hours. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  93. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:44 PM

    They probably hid him under that ghost behind Byron.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I just got an email with the subject line "Legit free money 4 u"... I'm glad it added the word legit otherwise I would've been concerned this wasn't on the up and up.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I really hope you're right about this.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I remember his last appearance on Raw, the live thread INSTANTLY went to "Show 75 New Comments" and all of them were "Does Dusty have something? Is he dying?"

    ReplyDelete
  97. Decent looking chick next to this dude.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Blod of Doom.Assemble!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Surprised they spelled everything somewhat correctly.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Probably just lost weight. He's like 70. At a certain point, I think you just start to decline.

    ReplyDelete
  101. This has the feel of a In Your House preshow from 95. I like it.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    The 4 would be my selling point.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Also - Shocked Undertaker Guy, you have been replaced by Stereotypical Neckbeard Guy booing at Owens' victory in that promo package.

    ReplyDelete
  104. And keep in mind Dusty is a WRESTLER at 70.


    That's like 120 in normal person years.

    ReplyDelete
  105. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    Did anybody else catch that Virgil's twitter pic is a picture of himself holding a sign that says
    "REAL VIRGIL! FOLLOW ME BITCH!"

    ReplyDelete
  106. "At Your College VI: Unstoppable"

    ReplyDelete

    ITS TAZZ!

  108. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:46 PM

  109. Art Macklin, Man Without FearMay 20, 2015 at 5:46 PM

    ReplyDelete
  112. Oh snap I just wrote this at the top. Touche!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Rhyno is in NXT?

    ReplyDelete
  114. Not only is Saxton being haunted by a ghost, but there's also a bald Bray Wyatt on his other shoulder.

    ReplyDelete
  115. That is a large large man in a large large Balor Club shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I hope they call him SoJo because that's terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  117. That guy has Kevin Kelly's voice almost down pat.

    ReplyDelete
  118. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:48 PM

    MARV! You missed a day!

    WHAT A LOVELY DAY!

    ReplyDelete
  124. So why can't he go by Samoa Joe again?

    ReplyDelete
  125. I feel like Stereotypical Neckbeard Guy might be about 70% of the NXT crowd.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Art Macklin, Man Without FearMay 20, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    Sounds so right.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Did I ask what you were doing motherfucker!?!?!?!?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  130. Thaddeus MountainMay 20, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    My source says he's staying Samoa Joe.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Shouldn't you be in Seattle by now?

    ReplyDelete
  139. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:50 PM

    ReplyDelete
  141. "Me too! Look at meeeeeee!"

    ReplyDelete
  142. Eric Bischoff, Garret Bischoff, and Jason Hervey are suing TNA for $114,000. If TNA loses this lawsuit, do they officially file bankruptcy?

    ReplyDelete
  147. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:51 PM

    Joey Joe Joe Shabbado

    ReplyDelete
  148. Jesus. They won't be able to pay anyone until 2023!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Of course you'll have to kill him afterwards to protect your identity.

    ReplyDelete
  150. Is TNA even worth that much?

    I'm kind of hoping not, because it would be awesome to see TNA end up on Judge Judy.

    ReplyDelete
  151. There are a few I'd trust, he and you included

    ReplyDelete
  152. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    I vote Kenndey Vincent!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  155. cabspaintedyellowMay 20, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    ReplyDelete
  156. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    Or, on Family Feud. Playing for the boys payouts.

    ReplyDelete
  157. It must be the mics or something because everyone of these guys sounds like Daffy Duck out there.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I like that Vince legitimate hates juniors.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Groucho Dr. Facts MarxMay 20, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    So does TNA fold by the summer and everyone migrates to GFW sans Dixie?

    ReplyDelete
  160. Art Macklin, Man Without FearMay 20, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    If your trust list involves Jobber then you're doing it wrong motherfucker.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Why are they suing? Breach of contract.

    http://411mania.com/wrestling/eric-bischoff-sues-tna-for-breach-of-contract/

    ReplyDelete
  162. That's the worst name I ever heard.

    ReplyDelete
  163. And the lawsuit could also delay pay as well.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I bet Art complains that you didn't mention him.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    *runs out crying*

    "Hey! It's Joey Joe Joe!"

    ReplyDelete
  166. From the sound of things, TNA might fold by the time the next Observer goes to press

    ReplyDelete
  167. Why would I complain about something I said?

    ReplyDelete
  168. cabspaintedyellowMay 20, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    There are few things on TV more infuriating when someone gets an obvious puzzle on Wheel of Fortune wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  169. The flurry episode of Entourage is one of the best episodes of all time.

    ReplyDelete
  170. I think WWE will take a couple.


    I could see them take another look at Bram and ECIII

    ReplyDelete
  171. Jonathan MeisnerMay 20, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    NAGGERS!

    ReplyDelete
  177. Oh me and Art are the same person, apparently.

    Like...as though I could physically post more

    ReplyDelete
  178. Cena's half of that promo was awesome as well.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Cavs are gonna do it

    ReplyDelete
  180. There's a disconnect between their characters on RAW and whenever Hunter or Steph show up on NXT

    ReplyDelete
  181. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!

    ReplyDelete
  182. That needs a better name than "pop up powerbomb." Hmm.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Why is TNA going out of business this time?

    ReplyDelete
  184. R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.May 20, 2015 at 5:57 PM

    "Poppin Fresh Powerbomb"

    ReplyDelete
