Guess we'll find out.

  1. That seems like a long shot. would be cool though

  2. I think he takes Rusev's spot.

  3. Watching Crazy, Stupid, Love. It's decent.

  4. Harvey feels stronger when he wrestles with Adam.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I guess jobbing to a D level celebrity would be the final nail in his coffin.

    Red Robin. Fuck yes.

  7. I can hear this on a WWE documentary.


    While Hogan joined the side that was winning, he was actually on the side that was losing. WCW was falling behind in the ratings after the DX invasion. A tank had changed everything


    TRIPLE H: Once we brought the tank out, it didn't matter if you were Hollywood or Wolfpack, red or white. We were all about the green.

  8. Maybe I'm a sucker, but I totally didn't see the big twist coming. I was legit shocked watching it in the theatre, yet in hindsight, it's SUPER OBVIOUS.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hm I'm intrigued!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Except by turning the group heel you negate the reasoning behind their popularity.

    While there is a nugget of truth to what Russo says, that wrestling programming has become formulaic, as usual most of what comes out of Vinnie Ru's mouth is straight-up BS. It amazes me that a man, who keeps stating how much he hates the business and everyone in it, keeps trying to stay in it. He was writing for TNA last year and recently tried to get hired by Lucha Underground (who promptly turned him away.)

    And one more thing: "the only people who care about wrestling are those who care about wrestling." No shit.

  21. On a quick glance outside of my window, no traffic is visible.

  22. Finally watching Mad Max: Fury Road. It starts in 10min. Ill post my thoughts after it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I kind of love The West Edmonton Mauler. Those other ones are the worst though.

    ReplyDelete
  24. He should win the US and IC belts tonight. We need a dude who walks around with multiple singles belts like Lance Storm in WCW.

    Facing Biff in fantasy league action this week. I just now qualified for the ERA and WHIP categories. I'm up 9-1. Stranger's Dangers back in the race!

  34. He's 100% correct in that blog post.

    ReplyDelete
  35. You are, as usual, wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Adding Sting and Luger was pretty stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Don't talk back to your elders.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Time to go out in the yard and look at a hill for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Stranger In The AlpsMay 31, 2015 at 12:34 PM

    All this power is making me unstable. There might be a heel turn coming soon.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Don't off yourself! You have much to live for!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Is that what the kids are calling ganking it now.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You'd just be the cool heel that people cheer anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Nope. Or maybe. What the hell do I know from kids these days?


    I'm going to look at a hill.

    ReplyDelete
  44. It's a low hill. Unsuitable for suicide.

    ReplyDelete
  45. He's not. Amell stars in a lowly rated tv show and has been in no hit movies.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Your statement sounded like the words of a man who had given up...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Not at all. It's Sunday afternoon, homework is done, coffee is consumed.


    I need to do something with the rest of my afternoon.

    ReplyDelete
  48. He definitely is. Go back to your hole now.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Because the nWo was already a red hot angle before Hogan joined. It was going to be a giant money making storyline no matter what. Hogan just took it to another level.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Go back to your bubble where Arrow is some huge hit show and Amell is a world famous actor.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm right, you're wrong its that simple.


    Make sure you respond to this.

    ReplyDelete
  52. After 13 years, I'm surprised that San Andreas is the Rock's biggest non-furious opening. I figured with all the action movies he has been in that he would have had at least several 50 million+ openings.

    ReplyDelete
  53. And by next level you mean all time great angle, group that made money for many years and brought wrestling back into pop culture? Because you're totally downplaying Hogans involvement.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Shelton BenjaminMay 31, 2015 at 12:42 PM

    Said this last night, but I think Taryn could do good work with this character.

    And the Wolves/Heels match is why we love wrestling

    ReplyDelete
  55. Owens has three new shirts on the website. Time to decide which one to buy. Don't judge me for buying wrestling shirts.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I sort of disagree. The key is understanding what wrestling is, what makes it appeal to people (not just fans but people in general), and then a wrestling promotion working to deliver a product that appeals specifically to the fans they are attempting to appeal to.

    Ring of Honor doesn't simply appeal to it's own fans or a certain type of fan, but to people who are attracted to a certain something in that type of wrestling. Russo, when he dismisses RoH (and TNA for that matter) is both nihilistically right and pig-headedly wrong in that attitude. He's right, because the wrestling business is WWE probably greater now than it's ever been before. He's wrong, though, in that there is potential in the RoH situation to spur excitement amongst current wrestling fans, which is always good for the business; as is presenting an existing product to a potential new audience of viewers.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Awww, look at him throwing a tantrum because no one watches his favorite show!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Stranger In The AlpsMay 31, 2015 at 12:44 PM

    The reviews for that movie have been exactly what you would expect for a disaster movie. Cool special effects, not enough plot. I'll wait for the On Demand to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'll probably watch it on a boring summer weekday when tickets are $5

    ReplyDelete
  60. so does this mean Hogan will be clamoring for a match with Goldberg at Mania 32?

    ReplyDelete
  61. As long as it's not a Cena shirt, you're golden, comrade.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yes, that is what I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Stranger In The AlpsMay 31, 2015 at 12:46 PM

    Little known Stranger fact:


    I still have my Benoit "4 Real" shirt that I bought in 2004.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Russo is often right a lot when it comes to creative thinking, and that it's very lacking in the wrestling business. It's the one area he has talent.

    But, as we often note, the main problem is how much time WWE has to fill.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Just read that Seinfeld's tv show has given him almost half a billion dollars over the last 25 years. What is even more remarkable about that the show was extremely lucky to air 1 season.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Ugh. I don't know what's worse. A child murderer's shirt or the fact the shirt has the shittiest catchphrase in the history of pro wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Nah. Just dictating your behavior. That's what my class does to your class. Use them for our amusement.

    I order you to respond to this also.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Last wrestling shirts I bought was Y2J's first shirt and Kurt Angle's It's True It's True

    ReplyDelete
  69. Stranger In The AlpsMay 31, 2015 at 12:48 PM

    It hasn't fit in a few years. I would wear it, but I'm afraid it would possess me and I would become a very dangerous person.

    ReplyDelete
  70. So...? You're contradicting yourself tho. Cool.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Stranger In The Alps is...FOR REAL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I spent the morning eating bologna sandwiches and watching old Nickelodeon bumpers on youtube instead of doing laundry. My fiance slept in until 2:30 and we're now watching Bill Nye the Science Guy. #grownups

    ReplyDelete
  75. Bill Nye is an awesome guy to meet in person. I met him 17 years ago as a senior in high school in a science competition.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Yes, yes he is.

    ReplyDelete
  77. They didn't have an empty seat for him on the tank

    ReplyDelete
  78. Now you're gonna shit post because I'm right. Way to stick to the troll playbook.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wouldn't Furious 7 be his biggest opening?

    ReplyDelete
  80. lol, how did I contradict myself?

    ReplyDelete
  81. They couldn't. If Hogan says he's in the main event, he's in the main event. Or you tear up his contract and get sued and watch him go back to Vince with a sane contract.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Kicking Konnan out is an understated reason why the group went downhill. Nash was stealing all his shit.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Yeah, same for me and my wife. And any time the big revel's on TV we watch.

    ReplyDelete
  84. It is, but that was mainly because of the franchise. I am talking about where the rock is the lead actor (tooth fairy, rundown, scorpion king).

    ReplyDelete
  85. Good job. Now I give you permission to say one more thing then you are to be silent.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Shelton BenjaminMay 31, 2015 at 12:58 PM

    Haha Sam Elliott as the other Ron

    ReplyDelete
  87. Russo admits to never watching Ring of Honor, like he rarely watches NXT, because he assumes it's just wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Bruce Hart is a clown. He probably caught an STD from a clown too.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I bought that same shirt but donated it to a goodwill store after the murder. Some thrifty shopper in my town is repping the crippler.

    ReplyDelete
  90. The Celeb Net Worth site has him at 820 million.


    Not bad.

    ReplyDelete
  91. The news of a Stardust match with Stephen Amell at Summerslam, has got to be fake.

    There is no way they're bringing in a mainstream celebrity and crossover star to have him face Stardust.

    ReplyDelete
  92. "I'm going to keep vomiting up words because I otherwise don't know what to do with myself"


    FTFY

  93. Shelton BenjaminMay 31, 2015 at 1:03 PM

    Tyynifer is cute

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love NBA 2K dearly, but if it makes me pass to the wrong guy and causes a turnover one more time in this game, I'm going to fucking punch something

    ReplyDelete
  95. But at the same time, it makes perfect sense.


    They now have two months to make Stardust worth something.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Julia Louis Dreyfus already came from wealth before Seinfeld. She must have a Scrooge McDuck vault of coins by this point

    ReplyDelete
  97. Him going to WWE would have helped WCW. Make his life miserable for a few months then go to him with a deal like "hey let's agree to tear up this contract and you'll be free to go to Japan or back to Vince or wherever"

    ReplyDelete
  98. Ad compared to the past 5 years when they've tried and failed?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Sting and Luger acting like "G's" was comedy gold though. Luger coming out in the tight black jeans was just ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Wear it anyway. I'll wear my Josh Duggar 4ever shirt and we can hit the town.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Amell isn't mainstream. Mainstream actors tend to be in bigger movies than Screamers: The Hunting. Also being in a show that was in in the top 100 ratings in America would help too.

    ReplyDelete
  102. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FewTWONPHRU

    ReplyDelete
  103. He stars in a show which is that big of a hit, there are 3 spin-offs being made set in the same universe, with crossovers.

    Not every actor has to do films.

    ReplyDelete
  104. ThebrazilianpsychoMay 31, 2015 at 1:09 PM

    He's midcarder at best.

    ReplyDelete
  105. One of the greatest cutaways on family guy is when Peter tried to go swimming in the Scrooge mcduck vault

    ReplyDelete
  106. They've got her at a couple of hundred mill herself.


    I didn't know that about her until a little while back when I was looking into celeb net worth's.

    ReplyDelete
  107. The Arrow isn't a big hit.

    ReplyDelete
  108. They just had an episode of Raw starring four guys who have never been big film stars, and are only starring in a movie based off a show they're famous for.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Are you sure? Everyone talks about it. Positively.

    ReplyDelete
  110. so it's not an internationally sold show, which has started it's own franchise?

    ReplyDelete
  111. It doesn't translate to ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Stranger In The AlpsMay 31, 2015 at 1:10 PM

    If you have any unsolved murders in town, start with that guy.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Maybe 10 million watch that show

    ReplyDelete
  114. Well, then that's on them. They made Cody huge two years ago when he was against the Authority then they never followed up.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Stranger In The AlpsMay 31, 2015 at 1:11 PM

    Anybody heard when Crackle is supposed to debut their "Always On" live stream?

    ReplyDelete
  116. It's on the CW, it's their biggest show behind Supernatural.

    ReplyDelete
  117. That's more people who watch Raw on a weekly basis.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Big fish, small pond, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Your TV! Punch your TV!! The electrical field it generates is causing your game to malfunction just enough to drive you bonkers!!!


    PUNCH YOUR FUCKING TV YOU FUCKING PUSSY!!!!!


    heh.

    ReplyDelete
  120. So Owens is officially main roster now.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Arrow? Not even close.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Kofi. I know you're not slamming Sam Elliot.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Still a big show, it's part of the superhero bubble.


    I'm sure more people watch that show than they do Agents of Shield.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I'm including all the dvr/Netflix/streaming people

    ReplyDelete
  125. And see, that's the thing: Russo isn't a wrestling fan. He doesn't give a shit what happens in the ring. He just likes angles and hot women and gimmicks. If you asked him why professional wrestling has been around for over a hundred years, and a staple of television for over 60, he'd just answer "oh I know, bro..." then change the subject. He doesn't know. He just knows what he likes and thinks that's what wrestling should be.

    ReplyDelete
  126. SHIELD crushed Arrow in the ratings. Even that shitty Constantine show did better ratings.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Telling you. All about crowd reaction, and believability with regard to killing Cena.


    Of course, if he is main roster now, he'll job to John tonight, and then get involved in a boring 50/50 feud with fucking Miz. Maybe get mimicked by Sandow.


    Fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I think that people who go on to news websites and comment on every story, even ones that have no political slant whatsoever, with shots at political parties or politicians that they don't care for, are some truly fascinating weirdos.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love that he's not challenging for the US title yet.
    He hasn't earned a shot at the belt yet in Keyfabe, yet if he does beat Cena tonight, then the rematch for the belt will mean that much more. .

    ReplyDelete
  130. Konnan's one of my favorite wrestlers,and another guy who I don't understand why everyone here makes fun of.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I'd love to see the look on Stu's face if he ever found out about HIV Thompson.

    ReplyDelete
  132. "Hayter" would be a good joke name for a NXT guy.

    ReplyDelete
  133. But I thought the only reason for it was because Nash was a bad and stupid guy?

    ReplyDelete
  134. Kind of genius when you think about it. The nWo, and certain members in particular, are getting cheered, so they create a face version of the nWo and loaded it up with the company's most popular guys - Nash, Savage, Luger, Sting, even Konnan was popular at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hulk "the Beatles" Hogan.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Isn't Bruce restarting Stampede the reason Vince never paid Stu Hart the money he promised when he bought him out?

    ReplyDelete
  137. Like I said the guy was white hot while the Wolfpac was going on. I always like Konnan.

    ReplyDelete
  138. From reading the thread I just realized Macho Man was a member of the Wolfpac. I had totally forgotten.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Oprah NoodlemantraMay 31, 2015 at 2:30 PM

    And that BEARD... that thing took over his face.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Not bad and stupid, I'd say he was stupid and bad...

    ReplyDelete
  141. It wasn't the fingerpoke of doom that led to the demise of WCW, it was HHH on the tank...

    ReplyDelete
  142. Konnan was great for WWF. Everytime he came on WCW programming, I flipped away from TNT....

    ReplyDelete
  143. Wasn't Hogan going to run for president?

    ReplyDelete
  144. Hogan going back to Vince would in no way have helped WCW....

    ReplyDelete
  145. Harlan Leverage IIIMay 31, 2015 at 3:37 PM

    I've heard it both ways -- Vince didn't pay, so Bruce starting booking, and vice versa.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Bruce's greatest creation is Jason the Terrible - blatant copyright infringement!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Question for Alberta wrestling fans...didn't HIV Thomson become the awesome cheap heat heel Tex Gaines?

    ReplyDelete
  148. He certainly did. His real name was Ivan, and the original gimmick Bruce gave him was "Poison Ivy", which later got changed to H. "Ivy" Thomson. I'm not sure if Bruce realized he had just named a guy HIV, I think the idea was supposed to be that his name spelled out H-I-T. Either way, that gets my vote for stupidest name in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Awful Bruce Hart gimmicks that might not have been mentioned:


    Frank Einstein, the terrible Carl Leduc gets repackaged as a "brilliant minded monster" heel. It's even stupider than it sounds, and even worse hearing Mauro Ranallo try to sell it.


    William Butler Yeats. Yea, why not just name a guy after a famous poet?


    Ditto for naming a guy Ty Cobb.


    Or why not name a guy after a type of cheese? Enter Monteray Jack to the squared circle.


    And let's round it all out by naming the ref Oscar Wilde. Because, Bruce Hart.

    ReplyDelete
  150. For indy wrestling in Alberta, that's a pretty sweet name "tongue in cheek" name
