BoD Tuesday Night Thread

Game 6 of the NBA Finals is on ABC and WatchESPN tonight. Warriors up 3-2 and look to put it away tonight.

There is also MLB action highlighted by Dodgers/Rangers, Blue Jays/Mets, and Nationals/Rays.

There is also a PPV watch going on. I believe it's Backlash 2000. Here's a link to it, you lazy bastards:

  7. I'm watching the latest OSW Review about the final Nitro (https://vimeo.com/130631155). People hail Mcmahon as a genius, but I swear he lost half the available wrestling audience *before* the Invasion angle even began just because of his manner on that show.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Last week, Woman turns on Sandman and joins Shane Douglas to set up a title match next week. During the match, it was a swerve and she helps Sandman beat Dougals for the title. Then Shane puts on a Monday Night Raw shirt and officially leaves the promotion.


    1995 ECW was on fire.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'm bizarrely proud that the chrono-watch has now made it into the Night Thread headline.


    *sniff* We've come so far since In Your House 4: Everybody's Wearing Purple

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hey, me too!


    It's also my unbirthday!

    Fucking hell that show was awful.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I not only watch the PPVs in chronological order, but the TV shows as well. Step it up the fucking casual.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:41 PM

    And who the fuck was watching that dumpster fire with you?

    ReplyDelete
  14. And yes: Backlash 2000 starting at 8 PM Eastern Time!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:42 PM

    Batman day is next Tuesday! ARKHAM KNIIIIIIIIGHT!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Night of Too Much Purple! Though Mabel-Yoko was hilarious.


    We've made it Art!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. The beating Shane took was classic

    ReplyDelete
  18. It was really, really bad.

    ReplyDelete
  19. This is the greatest night in the history of our sport!

    ReplyDelete
  20. It all started with me and Art angrily and confusedly sitting through IYH4.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm going to pretend it started with Rumble-Thon and you'll never convince me otherwise lol

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sandman/Woman/Shane, Cactus/Funk, Raven/Dreamer, plus the midcard of Guerrero/Taz/Benoit/Malenko/Scorpio. No promotion could touch ECW in 95.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    Downvote. This is where the power lies brother.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm working E3 this week and I encountered the game reviewer for 411 Mania. What a giant prick. Just rude to everyone. I'll be shocked if he isn't blacklisted by the end of this show.

    ReplyDelete
  25. It really did.


    You pioneered the livewatch, as a group we mastered it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. 411 can afford to send someone to E3?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:45 PM

    Both bad and totally unremarkable. At least some shows are so bad they come back around to being entertaining. That was bad and boring as all hell.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't think they'll have that to worry about by the time this week is over.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Local guy, wanted to go anyway, through 411 he gets in free probably

    ReplyDelete
  30. Who's the wrestler you were most wrong about? For me it's Paul London. I honestly thought he was going to be this generation's Shawn Michaels.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm doing a 1989 chronological watch for NWA and WWF and today I watched the NWA World Championship Wrestling episode from 1/28/1989 that featured Flair and Windham attacking Eddie Gilbert with Steamboat making the save. Can't wait until I get to Chi-Town Rumble to watch Flair/Steamboat again.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:46 PM

    At least it was only 2 hours.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pleasantly, it's Kevin Owens.

    I thought for sure he was pure garbage until he dropped Zayn on his head.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I thought Shelton Benjamin was going to be a main eventer for life when he got all those DQ wins over HHH.

    ReplyDelete
  35. When running for president, Trump should mention that he is the only WWE Hall of Famer to run for president

    ReplyDelete
  36. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:48 PM

    MVP. I thought he was going to be a megastar.

    ReplyDelete
  37. And who's the opposite of that - guaranteed superstar turned jobless bum?

    ReplyDelete
  38. He said he'd want Oprah as VP and based on where this country is today that seems fitting.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:49 PM

    Does Kevin Steen count? I always knew he would be great, but if you told me that WWE would ever consider signing him much less strap a rocket to his ass I would have laughed in your face and called you a moron.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yeah this whole "no skip policy" has gotten awkward.


    Over the Edge 99 was really uncomfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  41. By most accounts I remain wrong on Orton, just highly dislike him and refuse to acknowledge reasons he's been basically the 2nd guy in the company for 10-whatever years

    ReplyDelete
  42. Mabel-Yoko was oddly hilarious to watch. The big hug of heel mutual respect and celebration while the crowd threw drinks at them was fucking awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm willing to bet if Oprah ran, she would get a huge chunk of the vote.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I just saw an indie poster that featured Vader and Samoa Joe and was so disappointed that they weren't running Joe vs Vader.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Ahh, I guess I didn't pay much attention to the original question did? lol

    Dolph probably, I thought he had all the tools to me a monster babyface and his talen would be undeniable. So wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ted Dibiase Jr. I can't believe he flamed out that badly.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Not unlike Bryan or Punk, although obviously neither of those guys have had the impact Owens has in their first few months.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Daniel Bryan. I thought he was a short generic indy darling that would amount to nothing in WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wade Bad News King Barrett

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just realized except for a couple shows I haven't rewatched 2000 in a long time. I'm really hoping this holds up instead of Benoit ruining everything with his stupid headbutts.

    ReplyDelete
  51. So this is the Backlash basically famous for finally having all the results they should have done at Mania right?

    I missed the end of WM2000 was the main event as weird and disjointed as I remember?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:52 PM

    I thought Nigel would be much bigger in TNA than Bryan in WWE. Nigel got a stronger initial push but then shit happened.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That's going to be his only hope.

    ReplyDelete
  54. No, I meant it either way. Dolph was headed in the right direction, but never improved his in-ring work or promos enough, IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    He still has the ability and he's certainly over enough, but creative just won't let it happen.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'll finish No Way Out tonight and jump on Backlash with you guys since I've seen Wrestlemania 2000 a bunch of times.


    After I get back from Avengers.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The end of WM2000 was really good once Show and Foley were out of it.


    This is acknowledged as what the 1999-00 season WM should have been.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:53 PM

    The Main Event is a mediocre 15 minute 4 way and ends with a ****1/2 Rock/HHH 15 minute singles match.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sony is officially funding Shenmue 3 100%.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Speaking of shit I can't believe is actually happening....

    ReplyDelete
  61. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    And backlash is pretty much known for having the funnest main event ever.

    ReplyDelete
  62. It's amazing to think the amount of times the booking that he got would've broken other guys. He always was a better wrestler than almost everybody, but a lot of guys understandably get worn down by shitty WWE booking.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 5:54 PM

    I was gonna make a Benoit joke but I'm on my phone and it's too much effort

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm still shocked that Barrett is not a former World Champ. He should have beaten Orton for the title in 2010 and go on a 6 month reign of terror only to be beaten by Cena at WM. Also if Miz tried to cash-in against him, the Nexus comes out to kick Miz's ass.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm still mad Triple H went over at WM 2000. The Rock deserved to get his "WrestleMania moment" there.

    ReplyDelete
  66. He's also a guy that's been around for 6 or 7 years off and on and feels like he's at the end of his run. Like Jake in 92.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:55 PM

    I never thought Austin was going to amount to anything. Man was I ever wrong there.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Barrett gets buried again and again and he literally was at the end of his Cena feud at TLC

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have a Vizio and the fucker has this Yahoo this at the bottom at says "Searching for Available Updates"

    Anyone with an idea how to get rid of it?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Is it me or is the Rollins/Brock babyface-heel dynamic completely backwards? Remember when Bret said Shawn stole his heel heat in Fall '97? This reminded me a bit of that. Meaning Steph and HHH completely fucked the guy over.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 5:55 PM

    I'm not one?!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:56 PM

    I feel the same way about Orton and Sheamus.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 5:56 PM

    I'm still holding out hope for a comeback

    ReplyDelete
  74. That's the shitty part of Nexus. Aside from Bryan, none of them were ready. Even Barrett had the "You're Doing It Wrong Slam" as a finisher.


    It's a concept that just wouldn't have worked with any group of rookies outside of the NXT 5/

    ReplyDelete
  75. Are you sure? That doesn't sound like HHH/Steph to me

    ReplyDelete
  76. Well, rumor is they want to turn Rollins and run Triple H-Rollins at SummerSlam, so there ya go

    ReplyDelete
  77. It seems like he got out before he got burned. No bad thing.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I laughed out loud on this one. Take a bow, you earned it.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm waiting for the WWE version of the David Arquette moment when Steph wins the title

    ReplyDelete
  80. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 5:57 PM

    That's what she said

    Till I bought the weekend

    ReplyDelete
  81. Then what they did makes sense even if it really doesn't.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I made a giant post about this is in the daily thread.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Too English. Can't connect with the audience.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I've honestly never played the first two. I'm hoping they are re-released before they release the 3rd one.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Been sick all day and just got around to watching Raw. I'm always late anyway. Guess it comes with the skin color. Not trying to steal your thunder.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I liked how you included an abstract for it at the beginning of the post.

    ReplyDelete
  87. That's going to be for Aurora Rose

    ReplyDelete
  88. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 5:58 PM

    Thought you would reach greater heights.

    ReplyDelete
  89. It's infuriating, at least HHH will take his lumps, Steph just keeps on swinging what I'm sure is her ginormous, workout fueled clit around like a battering ram and everyone has to grin and take it

    ReplyDelete
  90. Whew...just in time for Backlash!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Just found out that it's an issue with all Vizios. Evil.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I just meant to say, you're not alone in thinking that.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Stick an eggbeater in your rectum.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    Brock is going to be a face no matter what, people love him (and Heyman) because he's just that good, and nearly killing Cole sealed it. Owens is starting to get he same reaction. But the new Brock/Authority alignment makes NO sense at all.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 5:59 PM

    Which I didn't even fully read

    ReplyDelete
  96. My favorite PPV of all time!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Starting Backlash 2000 now!

    ReplyDelete
  98. First one is awesome. Second one is a step down from awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 6:00 PM

    The whale?!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Gotta tap out before the Main, but I watched it last week for GWE, so it works out well anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I turned off pretty soon after Owens first segment last night, they do anything to explain what changed the Authority's mind on the suspension?

    ReplyDelete
  102. Even this promo package is way more Mania like

    ReplyDelete
  103. but what's heelish about Rollins now? I kinda felt sorry for him with the way the story was written

    ReplyDelete
  104. Gentleman, welcome to the best season of WWF ever! We've sat through unimaginable shit to get here (except It's Time, where everybody left but Petuka) so let's enjoy this!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Basically, they made a deal with Heyman to teach Rollins a lesson

    ReplyDelete
  106. https://disqus.com/home/discussion/rspwfaq2/scotts_blog_of_doom_bod_daily_update_9178/#comment-2082707239



    This is it if you want to read it.

    ReplyDelete
  107. This old open still gets me pumped

    ReplyDelete
  108. Ohhhhhh, yeah. Timestamp?

    ReplyDelete
  109. It's the same thing they did to Orton's authority reign, that was the closest I came to tolerating Orton because I felt sorry for him by the end

    ReplyDelete
  110. I miss that Backlash logo, too. Loved it in the video games.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I'm jacked for this show. The Cavs might lose tonight and I don't really know if I care lol.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Shelton BenjaminJune 16, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    Now taking bets on when you pass out

    ReplyDelete
  113. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    There's a button only Vizio where if I accidentally hit it an annoying bar pops up I have to turn the TV off to get rid of it. Annoying. Smart TV right?

    ReplyDelete
  114. Shouldn't Rollins just purposely get DQ'ed like 1 minute into the match against Lesnar?

    ReplyDelete
  115. It's why I hate doing the second PPV per night lol.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 6:02 PM

    True. I figured they were going to turn him face, and that's what they seem to be doing, but somehow not. Like I said, it makes no sense.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Seriously, worst live watch leader ever, get on a superior coast if you're going to do this.

    ReplyDelete
  118. JEFF JARRETT'S BACK! I'm marking out bro! Oh...it's her.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Drunk ring announcer Debra?

    ReplyDelete
  120. I know it's a small solace, but knowing that "The Greatest Team Ever" barely eeked by one guy playing basically by himself and all of sports media wanting that guy to be the MVP even in a loss has to be pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  121. The Pebbles Flintstone do is pretty awful.

    ReplyDelete
  122. It is. Next year if we don't get injuries it's another story.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 6:04 PM

    Instead of having Brock just come out and say that Rollins never beat him and he's entitled to a rematch, so now Seth, you're fucked. But that wouldn't have been stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Debra ring announcing: just slightly worse than early Lillian Garcia.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Jesus, who thought Debra being an announcer was a good idea?

    ReplyDelete
  126. cabspaintedyellowJune 16, 2015 at 6:05 PM

    I'm not even watching Backlash, but I can still hear how drunk Debra is.

    ReplyDelete
  127. same guy who thinks she should be the rock's manager

    ReplyDelete
  128. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 6:05 PM

    You say that like Garcia ever got better.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I agree with everything except for Heyman. He's a businessman so it's not his job to take his dealings with The Authority personal. His job is to do what's in the best interest of Brock and that's what he did.

    ReplyDelete
  130. But what else is gonna fill the PPV time, PAL?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Stranger In The AlpsJune 16, 2015 at 6:06 PM

    Busy barring the door for Tropical Storm Bill. Tornado watch until tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Even Sunny had the dignity to show up sober-ish for her ring announcing.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Even if she was sober, Debra just doesn't have a strong enough voice to do this.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Just remember, Lebron will never be Jordan.

    Jordan needed 3 HOF's on his team to win titles, not 2 lol

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hellooooooo Bill

    ReplyDelete
  136. X-Pac and Road Dogg: 0-1 on PPV, "Best Tag Team in WWF history" according to JR and the King.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Talk about the least intimidating name for a Tropical Storm ever.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Brock was suspended so that got them around that. They addressed it in one of the dumbest ways possible but you take what you can get

    ReplyDelete
  139. Pippen/Rodman/Kerr

    ReplyDelete
  140. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 16, 2015 at 6:07 PM

    Supposedly that's going to dump a healthy bit of rain on us too.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Stranger In The AlpsJune 16, 2015 at 6:08 PM

    I was just about to say that. You may as well name it Bruce or Marvin.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Well, isn't William just to formal?

    ReplyDelete
  143. Kerr's nowhere near that class. Like there have been literally a thousand Kerrs in the league. This one was just in the right place at the right time.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Where is Debra, anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  145. MLB looking into All-Star voting changes. How about this change? Just don't let fans vote, pick 25 dudes like a regular roster, and play a freakin' game.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Drinking at the timekeepers station I think.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Or only allow fans to vote 3 times per IP address instead of 35.

    ReplyDelete
  148. This is the one all-star game that's actually salvageable

    ReplyDelete
  149. I like it the way that it is but get rid of making it count

    ReplyDelete
  150. Local weather forecasters are getting desperate in CT for ratings I guess, not only already pounding the drum on this storm, but yesterday put out a "looks like a busy winter" push on the local news weather site

    ReplyDelete
  151. Why can't each person just get 1 vote? Who the hell needs 3? This isn't a NYC election circa 1870

    ReplyDelete
  152. Yeah that needs to change too.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Heel Sheamus feels like he's got a couple more years in him. Not fresh or new by any means but not completely used up.


    Orton feels like he should have been one of those guys that constantly jumps territories. He's really fun for like three months and than just gets stale as shit.

    ReplyDelete
  154. The game itself is so goddamn pointless (as they all are)

    Just do a home run derby and be done with it, that's all anyone gives a shit to watch anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  155. Since Chris Bermann does that I haven't watch the HR derby in over a decade

    ReplyDelete
  156. Stranger In The AlpsJune 16, 2015 at 6:11 PM

    Tropical Storm Bill Braske could snort a line of coke while fighting off invisible ninjas.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I could see letting kinds or members of a family vote on one IP address.


    35 is ludicrous though.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I'd go with corked bats, spit balls, and nail files

    ReplyDelete
  159. "They all hate each other but Paul shake hands with them because he has what he wants."



    This line I included is basically that.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Instead of the most famous players, why not just get 25 guys who want to be there and will take it seriously? I'd actually watch then

    ReplyDelete
  161. That's hilarious, dude listening to him go into palpitations is half the reason I even care.

    ReplyDelete
  162. I think it would be better to do more than one because if there was only 1 ballot per person, they'd just vote for all their favorite team's players. At least with 3, you might get people doing 1 ballot with their favorite team's players and then another ballot or two with players that really deserve it.

    ReplyDelete
  163. It sucks that Billy Gunn's hurt. This would be an awesome passing of the torch match if its him and Road Dogg.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I remember when you had to vote at ballparks on scantrons. My mom just voted for all the Reds players, even one dude who had a .174 batting average. I cracked up.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Shouldn't storms be given like super hero names or villain names? Wouldn't Hurricane Lex Luther be better than Hurricane Bill?

    ReplyDelete
  166. I think it is hilarious. If Omar Infante makes the ASG, he gets like a 2 million dollar bonus. Vote for him and screw over the Royals!

    ReplyDelete
  167. Woah, shrapnel

    ReplyDelete
  168. I'm just repeating shit my idiot brother say lol, I don't fucking know

    ReplyDelete
  169. That'd be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  170. At least Waltman brings the workrate up a little.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 6:13 PM

    So annoying having JR pitch Road Dogg and X-PAC as "arguably the greatest tag team ever" after Billy got hurt.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Bill was an awesome little known superhero from the 50s.

    ReplyDelete
  173. This was his moment, he deserved it after working hurt basically all year.

    What did they even do at Mania? Pac and Dogg?

    ReplyDelete
  174. I'd cut it back further from 25 to like a Fantasy squad of like 12 batters and 7 or so pitchers. Forget cheap substitutions and all that garbage. If it's for home field, it needs to be contested like an actual game and not guys getting subbed out after 2 innings.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I was looking forward to the Dudley's powerbombing them out of the company.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Billy was maybe the only tag guy of that era that could keep up with E&C. They're not exactly technicians yet. Billy was definitely fast enough to have some fun match time with them.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Little Bill was a pretty cool show a few years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    Vs Kane and Rikishi

    ReplyDelete
  179. Pac & Dogg vs Rikishi & Kane

    ReplyDelete
  180. Bill can be a fairly horrifying name in the right context

    ReplyDelete
  181. With that Boston incident, I don't think the MLB wants more shattered cork bats at the game. I do hope they don't drape the whole ballpark with netting, though.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Battered women's shelter?

    ReplyDelete
  183. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 16, 2015 at 6:14 PM
