  1. Probably passing on the PPV live watch tonight and gut through Orange is the New Black.

  2. I'd probably watch a modern day version of the late 90's Slammy Award shows hosted by Rene Young and Todd Pettingill

  3. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!June 12, 2015 at 7:32 AM

    I would only watch that if Todd brought back his mullet.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Hmm. Not sure what I prefer out of those house show choices. I'm going to one in November here which I presume will still have the same matchups

    ReplyDelete
  5. Uh oh the Big O got eliminated

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd watch if Renee stuck that mullet down his throat and watched him choke on it. I'd watch that for 3 hours

  7. Who is this Abby Dark-Star lady?

    Here is a pic:

  8. So are they doing Reigns vs Rollins at Summerslam? Instead of Brock vs Rollins?

    ReplyDelete
  9. It makes sense to have Slammys on the network..now lets hope they put out a new WWE album to pad the show with songs ala 1987

    ReplyDelete
  10. He did a match for TNA when they did the Gut Check stuff and he was a shitty wrestler.

    ReplyDelete
  11. They did a Where are They Now with Todd a while back and his hair looked even worse than when he had the mullet

    ReplyDelete
  12. O+A used to rip on his radio show. It really was the most dreadful thing I've ever heard. That guy should not ever be in WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  13. TripleS or Triple S - one of them, anyway - got the bionic elbow from Scott last night.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!June 12, 2015 at 7:41 AM

    I 'm on board with your idea.

    ReplyDelete
  15. He was trying to be nice to me in the comments yesterday. Maybe he sensed the end was nigh.

    ReplyDelete
  16. SHIELD reunion! Oh, wait.......

    ReplyDelete
  17. Check out the Sporting News post yesterday. He came at the king and missed.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!June 12, 2015 at 7:43 AM

    So Mikey....you think we're done? They looked gassed last night. I just don't see winning 2 of 3 in Cali.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just checked and it was TripleS (who was the actual poster and not the troll... right?).

    ReplyDelete
  20. It looked like all of the minutes the Cavs have logged caught up with them all at once. I also don't think they have a counter to the small lineup Golden State threw at them last night.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Definitely the actual poster

    ReplyDelete
  22. Awesome. Scott gives people a lot of leeway. I would have banned him a long time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Though I imagine the fake TripleS will probably arrive any minute now

    ReplyDelete
  24. Roku has a Classic Horror Movie channel available - I've always had a soft spot for cheesy, campy horror flicks, so I sat down and watched the original Manos: The Hands of Fate. I don't even know what to say about it - it's truly awful and technically horrid in every way, but I kind of enjoyed it for the train wreck it was. Kind of like a Brie Bella promo.


    Anyway, I've decided that WWE Films should absolutely remake this, with Damien Sandow playing the role of The Master and Bull Dempsey playing the role of Torgo.

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's ok, I liked the fake one better anyhow.

    ReplyDelete
  26. - Simon Edwards and Eric Tompkins, two longtime TNA production workers
    have reportedly given their notices to the company. Tompkins worked as a
    video editor and was considered one of the better editors TNA had.
    Edwards worked as a video producer and had been with TNA for nearly ten
    years.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd ban half the people here, especially those in the top 37. I guess Scott just doesn't want the site to have that kind of rep.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No, you start banning that many and one morning you wake up and you run TNAMecca.

    ReplyDelete
  29. He used to be Steve Stennick. He was a troll. Triple S was a troll.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm going my first show in 7 years later this month. It was supposed to be headlined by Cena/Rusev, which was aok with me, but if this is true I'll get to see Kevin Owens instead. Add in Dean Ambrose and I'm a happy SodiePop.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Me too. I haven't been posting here long, but that dude got to the point where seeing his avatar irritated me.

    I was determined to not feed the trolls, but I couldn't resist yesterday and called him a raging asshole.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How about something like a WCW Slam Jam CD?


    We need a new version of Don't Step to Ron.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Fun fact - the guy who played Torgo was wearing the leg prosthetics for the movie backwards, which is why his knees were so huge. It apparently messed his knees u and caused a lot of pain.


    Not fun fact: He ended up later killing himself.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah I think we're done, man. It didn't look good and the fact that Delly can't play more than five minutes without looking like Steiner during his Rumble 03 match isn't promising. I think Mayyyyyybe we can go seven.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That's Hard Times, Daddy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Did Triple S stand for Studly Steve Stennick?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVVX3_rfHVg

    ReplyDelete
  37. Actually I just want Vince to sing Stand Back again

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been here 8 months and had the same philosophy but they do get seriously annoying after a while

    ReplyDelete
  39. I didn't realize he was Steve Stennick. His new persona was awful but I don't think as terrible as his Stennick persona.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Anybody following the Rachel Dolezal story? Weirdest thing I've ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  41. HARD TIMES IS WHEN YOU EDIT VIDEO ALL DAY, DADDY, AND YO COMPANY CAN'T SEND YO PAYCHECKS AWN TIME! DAT'S HARD TIMES!

  42. HE'S SIMPLY RAVISHING AOOOOO

    ReplyDelete
  43. Is that the lady who is in the NAACP but had parents come out and say she's actually white?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Someone was talking this promo the other day. 2 Cold Scorpio and some kids go to school:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hml0Nu3X0s

    ReplyDelete
  45. That's some strange stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know that moment in the Simpsons where Grampa Simpson walks into the burlesque house, sees Bart, and just walks right out without breaking stride? That was me when I saw that story.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Had to Google that name. I'm ignorant.

    ReplyDelete
  48. When you only have 6 guys who can play, there's not many counters.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Strange. But if gender and race are just constructs, as they like to say, what's the beef

    ReplyDelete
  50. Better Known as Mr. Bang Bang

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yup. And it was convincing, too! Gun to my head, I'd say she was just a light skinned black woman.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Six has been pushing it. Last night it was LeBron and Moz and that's it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yeah, unless you want to play Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, and Joe Harris to throw at a three guard lineup, which would make matters worst.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think it will come down to the lying if true

    ReplyDelete
  55. What is interesting is she has evidently done a lot of good in her position.

    ReplyDelete
  56. There's a difference between transitioning to something and plain ol' deception.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yeah seriously! She had the vibe from the lead on Girlfriends that is on that show with Anthony Anderson show. Totally pulled it off!

    ReplyDelete
  58. People are saying she might have Displaced Identity Disorder. She had abusive parents and adopted black siblings whom the parents paid more attention to. Maybe she thinks making herself "black" will get her more acceptance

    ReplyDelete
  59. not gonna lie. This was a hot take based on 5 seconds of skimming an article.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Seriously, how does one spend that much time and energy communicating with a group of people without contributing anything worthwhile? Don't these people have jobs?

    I'm not a pillar of the community, but I at least figured out that Mick Foley was John Cazale. All that dick did was disagree with someone else's opinion, then dare them to prove him wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  61. You came back, asked if his father knew about this and ordered a whiskey sour?

    ReplyDelete
  62. One guy on Twitter said she looked like every inner-city school principle.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Yeah, but that's my response to everything.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Looks like Sideshow Bob's sister.

    ReplyDelete
  65. THEY STEAL YOUR WATCH, KICK YOU IN THE BUTT AND SAY HEY! A COMMUNITY COLLEGE INTERN, TOOK YOUR PLACE DADDEH!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Yeah I'm just saying if she gets kicked out...obviously there is the she lied angle but also...you could look at it as..."so did she do a really good job? well...yeah...but" "But what" "well....she lied...and" "and isn't black?" "I didn't say..."

    ReplyDelete
  67. Shumpert, Thompson, Delladova are functional role players/backups. The problem is the guys they backup are out. Smith is streaky, but when he's on he makes a difference. But Miller, Marion, Perkins and to some extent Jones are dead weight.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Modern remix/update of Slick's theme or GTFO.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Overall I thought that guy wasn't awful (even though I routinely called him an idiot). He had some fine points, but he just went about it like a total douchebag. Which again would be fine, but then when he's called out on it, he'd always do the "what me, what did I say that was so insulting" routine. But basically, he was a jerkoff with too much time on his hands that had a heightened sense of himself b/c he argues with strangers on the internet

    ReplyDelete
  70. I just wanted to know what's going on in Spokane that makes white folks wanna be black. And whether they had any apartments for rent. She wants to be black, tell her to come down to Mississippi.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Just saw that and read your comment below. She probably is doing that to get acceptance and attention from her parents.

    ReplyDelete
  72. His body's chiseled, abs all in a row
    You'd think he was sculptured (sic) by Michaelangelo

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's very confusing. Most of the black community has been amused by this rather than angry because it's so asburd. And it's not like an iggy Azalea or what have you "acting black" to be cool. This chick was dedicated to this shit and didn't even want people thinking she was white.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!June 12, 2015 at 8:02 AM

    I would kind of be shocked if we won another game. They looked like their legs were gone. Even Lebron dragged some butt last night.


    And like you said, Delly was tapped out by the time Usher was done singing.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Whiskey sours are good.

  76. His opinion were occasionally reasonable, his manner was always objectionable.

    ReplyDelete
  77. That was Steve Stennick? I thought the theory was Vince Jordan... or did that change since last night?

    ReplyDelete
  78. That story about the escaped convicts in New York is just strange. How the hell do you cut through a steel-reinforced concrete wall in the middle of the night with power tools and nobody hears shit? And now the search area is supposed to be within 5 miles of the prison? You bust out of the pen, have a 5-6 hour head start before they notice you're gone, and you may stick within 5 miles of the prison? What the fuck?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Reigns/Rollins: Ok sure
    Owens/Cena: Ok cool
    Slammys: Good
    Tough Enough: Whatever
    Tapout: Whatever-er.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Biscuit cracked the code. His IP address was also from Missouri, were Stennick is from. Same confrontational crap as Stennick too.

  88. So the guys who murdered that rich family in their own mansion and took like 40 grand in cash got caught because they ordered pizza, refused to eat the crust and LEFT THE UNEATEN CRUST AND BOX THERE.

    Sometimes I think I'm dumb, and then I hear about the shit other people do....

    ReplyDelete
  89. You know, I can't say Dusty had the effect on my childhood that Macho or Warrior did, but this death has hit me harder than either of those. I think it's because it seems everyone liked him. That's basically impossible in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Yeah, Caliber probably gets top spot.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Who is left now? Chris Fothergill-Brown seems to be gone. Besides Scott, its Logan, Matt, Tommy, and myself as weekly contributors.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I liked Logan's recaps of old WWF magazines. He seems to have abandoned that project though.

    ReplyDelete
  98. So I wasn't really around much for the Caliber stuff..is that archived somewhere? what did he do? I mean I've seen the facebook posts and the youtube videos so I can imagine but how bad was it?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Bold prediction - Cavs go into game 5 and lose by like 15, never really close. Then, you get one of those vintage LBJ performances (42,16,12) and even that doesn't tell how great he is in game 6. Then, he carries them by himself on to a game 7 win, cements his legacy as the second best player to ever play basketball, comes home to a massive celebration. Then he signs with the Knicks in July and saves NYC basketball finally...

    ReplyDelete
  100. No idea. He was writing a lot then stopped.

  108. That was awesome. He could have just kept the headline without the rest, and I could have given him a VERY simple answer: because every piece you write makes me cringe hard at least once.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I remember Scott praising the guy on one of the PTBN podcasts

    ReplyDelete
  110. Yesterday's Sporting News thread.

  111. I swear that the vast majority of people in prison are there because they do something incredibly stupid that leads to them being identified and caught.

    ReplyDelete
  114. What was he covering? WCW?

  115. Down Under Aussie (in Japan)June 12, 2015 at 8:11 AM

    Couldn't accept that Scott was critical of Dusty but also wanted to do a tribute to his contribution to wrestling. Guy had some serious problems.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I really didn't know the guy until WWF so I always saw him as mainly a WWF guy. One difference between him and the other 2 you mentioned is that he is always around and mentioned like on podcasts (see the austin/heyman one), on commentary, or in skits.

    I'm not saying anyone deserves to die, but if I were rich, I would NEVER buy a mansion. I would NEVER buy a super pricey car. I wouldn't flaunt my shit AT ALL. There are too many fucked up people in this world who have no problem killing other people. I'd buy everything as a normal, middle class guy. I'd rather have money in the bank and feel comfortable than live with Tony Montana and feel paranoid like Tony Montana.

    I agree. What LeBron has done with this cast is pretty amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  122. They really just lived in a nice house in a nice suburb though right? I don't think it was necessarily flaunting. This was some sort of inside job wasn't it - haven't followed the story really

    ReplyDelete
  123. It's Spokane. There's people out there who think Napoleon Dynamite is a documentary about the area. Having lived there from five years I can say that sadly it kind of is.

    The ol' conference call pucker.


    Been there.

    ReplyDelete
  125. One thing I liked about Dusty is that he was progressive in his thinking when working with younger talent (after he retired). What I mean by that is that he wasn't an old-timer, like some of them, who CONSTANTLY talk about how things were better in their day, territory, etc. A lot of NXT guys have talked about working on their gimmicks in Florida with Dusty and that's kind of cool.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Belee_Matt!_INDEED!!!June 12, 2015 at 8:16 AM

    Oh, I don't know anything about the story. Bobby just used the word "mansion" and that's what I thought about it.

  127. My aunt and uncle are well-off. Their home is in the million dollar range. They buy nice cars but not super nice (Lexus/Infiniti). They go on several nice trips a year. However, they are super down to earth enjoyable people who never let money affect them in any way. He could have been a $10 million/year CFO for a major company. However, making 500k to a million is just enjoyable enough for them.

  129. How do people have meltdowns on an internet forum, that's one thing I can't understand. Do they realize they can just click out of the page and not post any more? It's a simple solution. I also never got why people who clearly don't like the page come and argue constantly - who wastes time going to webpages they don't like? Seems like a total waste of time/effort

  132. My parents have done pretty well for themselves and paid off their nice house in the suburbs early enough and my cousin, a very materialistic guy who's all about possessions, was telling them how they should upgrade to a better house. And my dad just kind of looked at him and said, "What's the point in buying a bigger house when you're happy in the one you're in?"

    ReplyDelete
  133. Precisely. Guys like Macho and Warrior, important as they were, used the business for their own gain. Dusty loved it enough to give back.

    ReplyDelete

  145. I don't think I would lump Macho in with Warrior, though. As eccentric as he was, Macho genuinely loved the business and was okay with jobbing and putting dudes over. It was only when he got older and WCW-ified that he turned selfish. And even after he retired, it was more that the business had spat him out because there was no longer a place for him.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Oh, Eddie absolutely hurt, but that was different, he was an active wrestler. I'm talking older guys - legends. Plus, of course, the proliferation of memories and eulogies is far more widespread now with social media. Grief feels more communal in these situations now.

  156. I think Macho's really hurt me because even though he was never my favourite, he was like a fucking superhero to me growing up.

    Benoit's death really rattled me, too. Again, not my favourite and I certainly have no sympathy for him since he died because of what he did, but I really, like a lot of smark fans, latched on to how hard he had worked and how he was the best wrestler in the world but couldn't get his kudos for such a long time. So for him to go out as he did shook me up.

  162. Yeah, the order of bitterness is definitely Dusty, Macho, Warrior. With Warrior is was pleasing to see that final weekend happen, if he'd died without that it would been awful for everyone.

  163. I think it was actually Dusty who told Macho to go home while he was in TNA because he just couldn't go out there and be the Macho Man anymore.

  164. We have that here in Louisiana on the interstates only, it's raised a few bucks.

  165. I've done the conf call on the toilet. Have had to check to see if I had mute on after I flushed. I've been fortune so far

  166. The one wrestler's death who would affect me the most would probably be DDP thanks to his yoga system, meeting him a few times, and hanging out with him last year at the yoga retreat.

  167. Why does my wife feel the need to ask me important questions right as I am about to fall asleep? You can't ask this shit any other time during the day?

  168. There was a time that I would have done that but now I think I'd probably die.

  169. Warrior' death really didn't hit me at all. I was too disgusted by the type of guy he turned out to be. Macho's death sucked, though. He was crazy, and had faults, but everyone seemed to think he was a good guy at heart.


    Same with Dusty. Zayn's tribute to him is great.

  170. The Benoit thing was a lot for a 13 year old Kyle to deal with.

  172. Warrior had the best send off ever.
    I remember reading that he had died and thinking that he looked great just last night.

  173. Sleep brings you happiness. Allowing this against the wife code.

  174. Warrior's messed with me because of the timing... it was mind blowing. He makes his big return... is at HOF, Mania and Raw... and then dies the next day? WTF

  175. You went to that? Nice. Did you get to ask Arthur why he has to make the rest of us feel like slobs? That's still a really crazy story.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Arthur, he does as he pleases.

  177. What's weird is that when Eddie died, I wasn't even surprised. He was looking rough in the time after he lost the world title.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Eddie's death was when wrestling stopped being "must-see" TV for me.

    My favorite lately has been, "Can you do this for me?" As tip-off goes up.

  180. I'm about to hit sleep heaven then I get a nudge and a "Hey Honey.................are you asleep?"

  181. Without trying to get to naval-gazey about the "IWC", the Benoit situation was a real kick up the arse with regards to reputation. People ragged on Scott yesterday for posting the old Dusty shoot with all his snide remarks in it. And, true, Scott was wrong about those things. But as commenters pointed out, before Benoit's death there was some fucked up correlation between a wrestler's skill as a worker and their value as a human being.

  182. I had to know that was coming. Now I'm going to watch Arthur and send death threats to Russell Brand.

  183. Yah Eddie shook me up... I was 25 and kind of going through a quarter life crisis anyway and that bugged me for a while.

  184. Last night I got:
    "So are you enjoying your dinner?"
    "Yeah, it's really good, thanks."
    "Ok....so I guess it's a good time to tell you that I did something..."
