Monday Night Open Mic

Howdy Blog O'Doomers!

Not to bother you guys enjoying the music chat but he's the nightly thread.

I liked the Network Special. Good opener. Very good tag match as New Day and Tyson/Cesaro are meshing to the point of where you can give them 15 minutes and get the hell out of the way. And that's pretty incredible given the short period of time both teams have competed against each other.

Couldn't explain why Rusev and Cena had such a horrible, plodding match. But I didn't this format for them because both guys are supposed to be superhero/supervillian types and someone's not going to look good in an I Quit match. But what I like about the few I Quit matches that have worked is they have relatively kept it in the 20 x 20. Try to have a wrestling, work on a body part, throw in some submissions and sell the drama of trying to escape or survive the submissions rather than use every bell and whistle in the book. Both guys can wrestle strong style so they should have done a lot better.

Very good main event and man Orton is just eating these pinfalls. The Shield spot was great as was the aftermath with Rollins holding out the fist and getting pummeled for it. That's called a double payoff right there.

Anyway TV:

RAW is Live

ECF Game 2: Go Lightning!

Mets-Cardinals on ESPN

NCIS has a season finale

New Episodes of The Voice, Dancing With the Stars, The Bachelorette, American Dad, etc. etc.

Keep it clean!

  2. First World Problems:

    My Walmart credit card sent me a code for a free Redbox rental and I can't think of a movie to get.

    ReplyDelete
  3. So, is the World Heavyweight Title match going to be in the Chamber?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh Jesus Christ, we humiliated this poor dude in the office by bringing this Carmen Miranda type of chick to embarrass him and sing to him. This is the best.

  5. Check out this awesome Pampero Firpo promo.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Is there going to be one? I could see a Rollins/Kane vs. Reigns/Ambrose match, taking place before they drop the Chamber.

    ReplyDelete
  7. They have a pretty good storyline reason to with all the JandJ interference.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The funniest internet subplot is Beyonce's crush on LeBron

    ReplyDelete
  9. The past month has been pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Of the three titles up, you think WWE's gonna have two of them change hands?

    ReplyDelete
  11. So at what date will WWE break up the Neville/Barrett/Ziggler/Sheamus combo? My bet is September 27th.

  16. Diva's title. They shouldn't change the others yet.

  17. Actually that wasn't bad...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Try The Babadook if you like horror.

    ReplyDelete
  19. A Kevin Owens appearance to hype Takeover would be welcomed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Watching a SNME on the network; Uncle Elmer and King Kong Bundy weigh in. Elmer refuses to give up a giant bucket of fried pig parts before getting on the scale.


    Well, duh. He wasn't done eating it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  21. That's cool, just saying it was well done and more interesting than I thought it would be. For the record, I'm fairly indifferent to Reigns myself.

    ReplyDelete
  22. They can put together great stuff; we know this. i can just think of about 500 things I'd rather watch first.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Bah. I'm going to start lobbying for El Torito to feud with Cena.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Like Jerry Springer!

    ReplyDelete
  25. yup.


    I'm looking forward to the event. Yet, I can't quite bring myself to watch NXT every week. Not exactly sure why.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Watching old footage and seeing how FUCKING HUGE Adrian Adonis got is kind of depressing.

    ReplyDelete
  34. No. Just tag and IC.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Would Screech give him a Dirty Sanchez?

    ReplyDelete
  36. They'll debut Balor tonight, have him job to Cena, then cough up the title to Jeremy Piven next week.

    ReplyDelete
  37. seriously?


    Lame.


    You know what? Fuck it. Each match should be in the chamber.

  41. First World Problems:

    I bought a 7" RoboCop figure (as well as a 7" Terminator endoskeleton fig). Went on eBay to find a matching in-scale ED-209 figure to go with the RoboCop. Found one, but it costs $82. At the same time found a 7" Predator figure for $26. Want to get it now but have to wait til I get paid on Wednesday. Dammit!

    ReplyDelete
  42. all at once. Like a Royal Rumble, but in the chamber.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm still surprised they haven't done a 3 on 3 Elimination Chamber. Wyatts vs. Shield would've been epic.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yup.


    Which is why we didn't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Art Macklin, Man Without FearMay 18, 2015 at 5:29 PM

    So sad we didn't get that. Their match happened AT Elimination Chamber for God's sake!

  48. I hear good things about Marine 4.. they say it's the cure for insomnia, and a great way to have sex if you're watching it with a date.

    ReplyDelete
  49. There's a Mad About You/Seinfeld paradox. Kramer exists in Mad About You and one event from a Seinfeld episode carried into a Mad About You episode. Yet Mad About You the show exists in Seinfeld...and the real Jerry Seinfeld makes a cameo in the last season of Mad About You. WUT.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Kramer was playing himself on the Mad About You episode, like Abed on Cougar Town.

    ReplyDelete
  51. No really sure why people are surprised by New Day/BRC. They had a match on Smackdown a few weeks ago that may be better than the one last night ( I have not watched last night's match)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I can't bring myself to watch Smackdown anymore.

    Well it's Monday Night
    Which means it's time for Raw
    We'll see our superstars Fight
    ....on Monday Night Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yeah considering all the talent involved is very talented, it shouldn't; be a shock as to why the matches have been so good.

    ReplyDelete
  56. That's the only good match this month. Totally worth it for me. 4 weeks of crap for that one gem. It's what I'm been reduced to

    ReplyDelete
  57. That tilt-a-whirl backbreaker/elbowdrop combo by Cesaro & Kidd last night was swank.

    Do the kids still say swank?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yeah, right.


    Like those fuckers have anything in my size.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Nah, that was Murphy Brown that Kramer "acted" in. Mad About You had an episode where they actually went to Jerry and Kramer's building.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Also, the fact that programs like The Bachelor are still on the air fucks with me. Couple of bitches from my last job lived and died by that shit.

  102. Watching Raw preshow on the network.


    I'm never going to be able to hear Rusev blurt out shit in fake Bulgarian without hearing Raiden from Mortal Kombat.

  103. The gym I go to has no air conditioning because it's one of the many things that needs fixed. No heat either. Also, there are buckets scattered all over the facility to catch leaking water.

  123. I was doing triceps pushdowns and was slamming the weights or so they say

    ReplyDelete
  124. No way man. I'd need dumbbells, flat bench, incline bench, a barbell, plates, squat rack, back hyperextension, pull up bar, lat pulldown, seated cable row, etc. Way too expensive.. I'd rather just pay my $30 a month.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Don't the cables there only go up to like 120? I know the DB's at most of them only go up to 65's-80's or so.

    You really should start, Hoss. Grab some ice cream, perhaps some Moose Tracks, and enjoy the best hour of wrestling on TV. Plus, you get Alexa Bliss' ass and thighs.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Just kind of suffering from Lawler overkill right now. But, I am always fascinated by the stuff he did with Kaufman.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Not as much. Telling you; the Raiden thing is a dead ringer.

    ReplyDelete
  143. It'd be cool if one day WWE streamed RAW live on the Network.

  144. He's resigned to the periodic one-liner on Smackdown but they do a good job of ignoring him and so do I.

    To anyone who was around Saturday: turns out the girl from Saturday actually WAS single, so I didn't unknowingly induce someone to cheat. Rather, she gave me a line afterwards so she wouldn't have to see me again! Which...is arguably much worse.


    But no harm, no foul!

    I'd probably be willing to go as high as $20 for what we get now, especially if they add in live Raw.
