    I love that Murdock is a cool customer, but not just another Bruce Wayne. He's an "everyman" but not a bumbling idiot. He can kick ass, but he's not some generic tough guy. He's a bit of a dark soul, but not some brooding douche. Brilliant character.

    John Morrison would be great to get a Samoa Joe type deal to work a bunch of NXT cycles and house shows while still doing indies. That dude could tear shit up with Balor/Owens/Breeze/Joe.

    Fuck, Morrison would be great coming into Raw and sliding in as a top tier babyface, but that's another story.

    They need to come up with some original ideas that don't suck then. I agree that it could border on oversaturation, but every time I think they took too much risk (Guardians of the Galaxy), it ends up delivering.


    Rebooting 40-year old franchises is a different issue and not the comic movie industry's fault.

    And Cody Rhodes tops my list of guys who need to get sent down to NXT and rehabbed ASAP.

    He needs to show up on NXT and shit all over the Stardust gimmick, and figure out how to either get over as just himself. Worked really well for Tyson Kidd.

    Cody could absolutely use 6-12 months having kickass matches/feuds in NXT and helping headline their house shows. I'd say the same would go for a few other main roster acts: Paige, Fandango complete with a brand new gimmick, and Damien Sandow.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, we'll show them! Especially for that FlagShare4LikeReply remark!

  23. Are there really people that think Daniel Bryan sold out by wrestling in the WWE? I read comments on a lot of boards over the years and I think ive only heard that once or twice by obvious trolls . Nothing ever serious though. I never thought the IWC was THAT bad where they would want a guy to destroy their body for almost no money. Maybe im just naive.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think Morrison is doing pretty well for himself doing indies and C-list movies. I think the door has always been open for him to return to WWE, so I guess he doesn't need the money (or the grief, or both)

    ReplyDelete
  25. The note about how Brock is awesome by doing something different is the killer.

    Everyone in the WWE is pushed to be exactly the same. For all the ribbing the indys get for pushing a roster of boring and samey vanilla midgets, WWE does jack shit to differentiate its midcard.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Corned Biff HashMay 26, 2015 at 12:29 PM

    One of these days, when the WWE does an overseas tour or something, it would be BOSS if NXT 'took over' Raw. You could obscure the smaller roster size by running a one-night tournament, or giving the main event plenty of time (NXT Title Match/Women's Title Match perhaps). You could have the weekly NXT episodes build up to it for weeks, maybe have a few WWE v. NXT challenge matches built up as well. Run a bigger venue than Full Sail, but a smaller, more intimate setting than your usual RAW to differentiate it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 26, 2015 at 12:30 PM

    Also, how completely dead in the water is Sandow? What a shame. They really had a chance to make an upper midcard babyface if they'd had him decisively win the Miz feud and then followed through with him changing out of a comedy gimmick.


    Now he's probably worse off in his career than he's maybe ever been.

    Cody Rhodes is even more depressing to me than Rusev or Bray Wyatt; whereas the other two had their shot with top guys before the WWE crippled their pushes, Rhodes is far more talented, just as charismatic, and has been around far longer. But no matter how much heat the guy draws (glorious heel run as IC Champ, uber-heat with the return to face the Shield/Authority in 2013), he's always cast aside.

  33. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 26, 2015 at 12:32 PM

    True, which is why a Samoa Joe NXT deal might work really well.

    WWE gets to freshen up NXT TV for 6 months and have someone else who can help headline the NXT house shows, while Morrison can just have some good matches and make extra dough and not get caught up in typical WWE booking nonsense.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Corned Biff HashMay 26, 2015 at 12:33 PM

    That's why you gimmick it and treat it like a Takeover special. The 2-hr. specials fly by on the Network; if you gave the main event 30 minutes, gave the women 20 minutes (all very doable) then ran a one-night #1 Contender's Tournament for the NXT Championship, plus maybe a special WWE v. NXT challenge match with one big star from the main roster? I'd wager that would make the 3-hour Raw broadcast far more palatable than it usually is.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Worst_in_the_WorldMay 26, 2015 at 12:33 PM

    Yeah, Cody seems stuck in a "generation" of wrestlers that WWE has sort of passed over. Cody, Wade, Ziggler, Morrison--- talented guys who got stuck in between the Cena/Orton Era and the Shield Era.

  36. Here's how you know ISIS, despite all their and the Republicans claims of being dangerous, aren't really that much of a threat to America:


    Our country is filled with idiots who honestly believe that Obama is the leader of ISIS. All they have to do in one of their beheading videos is say that Obama is their ALLAH or something and watch people lose their minds.

  39. It's funny - to me, Mizdow's treatment and the failing of the end of that angle is what drove me away from the product.

    Not CENAWINSLOL
    Not Roman Reigns
    Not the Authority
    Not the nonsensical Bella angle
    Not boring 3 hour RAWS
    Not booking Wyatt to lose to a guy who almost never shows up

    I'm not ready to cast Kofi Kingston out of that group yet, either: just because he's found success in a tag team as cool as the New Day has become means little over all, because he's been in tag teams often over the last eight years. If the New Day spins him out into a big threat for a major championship, then we'll talk.

    I thought Cody was in that role, too, since he was always really good, but never great (bridesmaid, rather than the bride sorta thing). But that promo he cut during his mini-run with the Authority in the Fall of 2013, then the comeback with Goldust against the Shield sold me on the guy as a possible future main eventer.

  51. I can't help but think that the fast, hard-hitting, stiff Indie Style that brought up guys like Bryan & Punk is a huge part of the reason why they got so burned out physically once they hit the big leagues and were big stars there.

    I dunno, along with those two and Kendrick, it's the third of those deals they've done in just the last few months.

    It might become the norm since HHH needs to keep NXT-TV hot and draw with his house shows, neither of which he'd be able to do easily without bringing in new (and name) talent every few months.

    It'd be interesting to see when TNA shuts down in September if HHH brings in any of those guys (Aries, Bobby Roode, and maybe James Storm seem to fit the mold) for NXT runs.

    the press that like a gang banger, will get shot, or a truckload of

The only thing I'm pissed about is the movie making the execs tell the Arrow show runners they can't use the Suicide Squad, Deathstroke, and ARGUS any more. Which really sucks because according to the actress who plays Thea, they were eventually going to bring in Harley Quinn.

    This is stupid because WB is adamant about the movies and shows being different, so why would it fucking matter if they're using the same characters

  101. Well that was my thought, but it seems weird they'd just pick and choose and do whatever they wanted. Is no one in control of the DCU as an entirety? Seems like someone should be saying "Um...none of these characters are Arrow's, leave them for if we want to use them for Batman."

    Batman vs. Superman is going to do big enough money to make it a "success" in financial terms, no matter what. But if people end up being lukewarm about the product itself, does that mean Justice League is dead in the water?

  125. Not the season when Vince was canoodling with Sasha Grey, and got arrested for his coke rampage. But that was all easily fixed at the start of the next season I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I may have been wrong about Owens. Cena putting 'fight Owens fight' out there was small but significant.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I took that a bit differently. I took it like if there was a handfull of guys post attitude era that are huge. Punk and Bryan would be in there along with Orton, Cena, Brock, Otunga, Edge, Batista and Angle. Which I would think is fair.

  128. Great show. Scorpio and Holly should have been a permanent team.

  129. If it looks good and the soundtrack is at least similar, I'll be in. Fucking love the original film.

  130. Urich had front pages that cover the climaxes of Avengers and Hulk in his office

    ReplyDelete
  131. And in the scene when all the bad guys meet up (sans Fisk) the Owl basically says "Every time these guys knock something over, it's more money for us."


    It's riddled with great references. As Art calls it, this whole MCU is just a fucking "embarrassment of riches"

    Would be a cop out to recycle Poledouris score (even if it is my favorite score ever), but for sure something similar.

  133. Oh yeah! When, um, the chick that Shitbrick liked in American Reunion got Avion hooked up with Mark Cuban, Vinnie bought shares for Turtle, or something.

  134. It's blowing up huge for Netflix right now. I can't wait for Defenders once they introduce the other three MCU Netflix shows

  135. Only score I like better is Braveheart.

    In this world, there has been an alien invasion (Avengers), crazy technological advances (Stark), gods (Thor), crazy government developments (Shield rise and fall), and people with generally incredible abilities.....but it still plays great as one dude deciding to try and help his little sliver of the world (Hell's Kitchen) against a very mortal enemy

  142. That's what makes it so great, it's so close to street level compared to everything else.


    And the fighting...the fighting is just too good. I'd like to beat Nolan over the head with a DVD set of Daredevil screaming "THIS IS HOW BATMAN FIGHTS!!!!"

  155. It would be silly for anyone to think that. The goal of anyone's career should be to monetize their efforts to the max. Never understood the "so and so sold out" philosophy under most circumstances.

    There's a site dedicated to easter eggs in the show and they mention if you look closely at the snipers bag, there's a playing card in it.

  167. But how hard is it to subscribe with a new email address each time?

  168. You mean Ryback?
    Or Henry?
    Or Gork-only-knows how many other "monsters of the week" Cena has defeated in the last few years?


    It's hard to trust WWE in these situations now because LOLCENAWINS. I would have preferred they kept Owens away from Cena for as long as possible. (Don't get me wrong -- I've been a huge fan of Owensteen since he and Zaynerico were fighting against the Briscoes, and I hope that WWE does the right thing with him. Unfortunately, we only have history to go on, and it ain't good for people to face Cena, especially so early).

  169. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMay 26, 2015 at 1:23 PM

    I love that Vince McMahon refuses to acknowledge or placate his audience: which is not entirely difficult to "get." Yet you have Marvel, with its decades of storylines and characters, and filmmakers who "get" the fanbase (easter eggs, special effects, dead-on character development, perfect casting, etc) and produce something even better than the fanboys could "book" themselves

  170. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!May 26, 2015 at 1:23 PM

    So....the Punk vs. Joe series back in the ROH days....


    ....would that be Skinny Fat vs. Fat Fat?


    I somehow feel like I've said this before. It's entirely possible.

  171. Yeah we staved off spoilers for weeks, but we're coming up on two months release so most of us have lifted that embargo

  175. Has there ever been a Fat Fat vs. Fat Fat marquee feud before? Joe vs. Owens might be treading down rare territory.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Yeah I was marking out when they brought out the kid, then the appearance of Stone at the end. It was glimpsing Thor's hammer at the end of I think Hulk, and knowing were close to supernatural going ons in our previously Earthbound series

    ReplyDelete
  177. What's that famous punk v joe match? I've never seen an roh match before oddly enough.

    ReplyDelete
  178. No problem at all. It's my fault not yours.

  179. TNA going to Destination America was like when CBS picked up Family Matters and Step by Step from ABC for one last season.


    None of those shows deserved to exist in the first place, let alone be picked up for one final running-on-fumes season.

    They need to have Murdock keep to his "no killing" thing for a while, if only because it will provide the perfect context for the eventual feud with Punisher

  190. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMay 26, 2015 at 1:29 PM

    Yes. And it works against the WWE Network for me. It's not that I can't afford the $10/month. It's that I can't justify the difference when Netflix (and ALL you get with that) is actually cheaper.

  192. I remember a few years ago when they bumped it from $7.99 or something to $10.99 or whatever it is and people online were losing their minds.

    Yeah, you guys haven't spoiled anything. I'm on Ep. 9 now and nothing has been ruined

  194. I'm interested to see how long the Marvel train lasts. I've seen all the movies and even I was a bit put off by Avengers 2 bringing up things I didn't have a clue about (didn't Tony give up being Iron Man at the end of Iron Man 3? Why did Thor leave to go take a bath halfway through the film? When did Black Widow fall for Bruce Banner?)

    At some point the franchise is going to become so bloated and self-referential it's going to turn off new fans.... just like comic books themselves, in fact.

    Plus, the actors aren't going to want to do them forever, and there's always the danger that the replacements don't win over audiences.

  195. Was the skinny fat ass line a slip up? I hope so bc if not it was just really stupid
