Talk about whatever.

    Curry didn't win Finals MVP but he's sure got my vote for BOD MVP!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 5:57 PM

    I didn't deserve Finals MVP.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I always love that look on Orton's face when Miz cashed in on him. Like "What the fuck are you doing? I'm not that beat up."

    ReplyDelete
  5. 6-0 Cubs bottom 2 :(

    ReplyDelete
  6. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 17, 2015 at 5:57 PM

    That farm system.

    How's the AAA team playing?


    (Like shit because all the good prospects have been called up)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I was very unhappy when that happened. In hindsight, they needed to pull the trigger.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm a little bit giddy for Owens/Joe. I'm probably going to be let down.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Even as someone who severely dislikes Miz, it was nice/amusing to see him struggling to hold back the tears during his celebration and remember he was a heel.

    ReplyDelete

    I love Kevin Nash.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm a huge fan of heels celebrating like they won the super bowl and crying tears of joy as people are freaking out in anger about it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:01 PM

    There's a car auction on NBCSN, if anyone is into that sort of thing. Too many muscle cars and not enough euro\Japanese and exotics. I liked Barrett-Jackson better.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Anybody else gonna watch the Ironman match?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I was a bit..why are they showing this again but oh yea he is a NXT guy

    ReplyDelete
  17. Looks like the rain let up a bit. Might need a canoe to get to the store

  18. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    So, is Briscoe a face in ROH now or what?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    I would if I had the network, I haven't seen that match in about 10 years. Only ironman match I like.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:03 PM

    Jay? He's been a face in ROH for at least 4 years now.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Judgement Day 2000 after NXT tonight. Rock-Triple H Iron Man match, baybee!

    ReplyDelete
  22. There's one tonight (starting now) on Lucha Underground for their top title.

    ReplyDelete
  23. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:04 PM

    Really? Huh, thought he was a heel.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Same, recording LU though for right after.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Watched the main earlier, since I work at 10:30, and it still held up for me. ****1/4.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:05 PM

    Ricochet vs. Morrison, right? Pass, those guys shouldn't be going an hour.

    ReplyDelete
  27. If there's a Sunbeam Tiger I'm in

    ReplyDelete
  28. Better workrate than Backlash but a worse show.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:06 PM

    I started watching ROH when Sinclair bought ROH and he's always been a face.

    ReplyDelete
  30. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:06 PM

    Lucha Underground has been on a role.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm such a Enzo and Cass fan boy...lets just get them awesome in the ring and make millions

    ReplyDelete
  32. Join us after the NXT


    Always room for a Hoss!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Giving Lucha pole position for the Iron Man stip.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Random thought: If WCW had lived, they probably would have made it a fight again when Austin/Rock left. Then Brock leaves like a year later and who knows what happens.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I haven't seen Alexa with Blurphy yet on the show. I look forward.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I know, really solid stuff week in and week out. The story telling is a bit different than wwe but that's fine.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't get it...

    ReplyDelete
  38. I don't want to ever hear Carmella talk again...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Her new outfit makes something else point forward

    ReplyDelete
  40. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:07 PM

    It's a TV show that happens to be about wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:08 PM

    I have to wonder if WCW would have offered Brock more money for less dates, like he has right now.

    ReplyDelete
  42. No Booker, Nash, Steiner or Goldberg in 2003 either.


    Plus who knows where RVD ends up.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That outfit on the other hand.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thanks. :-) have stuff to do though.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Jeez. Their entrance rivals NAO.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:09 PM

    He had a no-complete cause after he left WWE, no way he could have gone to WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Had that same thought. He didn't hate wrestling, he hated the travel. WCW would have been perfect for him.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Last week cass's don't take this the wrong way has a 0% success rate is still the funniest thing I've heard in awhile

    ReplyDelete
  49. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:09 PM

    So like WWE, but good?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Possibly. The contracts are interesting. Where does Hogan end up? Did he have to wait for his Turner deal to expire like the rest of them? Plus maybe they stop playing stupid and push Mike Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm more interested in Owens vs Joe so that won out to watch first but I'll watch the Ironman match right afterwards. Should be a good night of rassli .

    ReplyDelete
  52. She is sexually attractive in the fur and not much else.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Her head is weird shaped.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:10 PM

    Then who does Brock face at a show like Starrcade? Steiner? Booker?

    ReplyDelete
  55. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:10 PM

    Yeah, except they treat it like a drama, and characters can technically die in story.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:10 PM

    Brock wouldn't have mattered due to legal issues. But picking up all the guys that eventually became the conerstones of TNA and ROH might have helped them.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the you look stupid chant is directed at someone other than Enzo

    ReplyDelete
  58. Only if could channel his '92 self

    ReplyDelete
  59. They already had AJ and Daniels in 2001.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Beau James tribute to Dusty Rhodes

    ReplyDelete
  61. I wonder if Billy Gunn gave Blake that hairstyle idea...

    ReplyDelete
  62. Also, no guarantee John Cena signs with WWE if WCW is still around.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Yeah you could say that. Some of the storytelling can get a little far fetched and soap operaish even compared to WWE but it's still good and fun. You still haven't tried LU?

  65. Surely, he was in developmental before WCW went under though.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:12 PM

    True. IIRC they signed Cornio and a couple other ECW guys just before they went under too.

    ReplyDelete
  67. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:12 PM

    He needs to look up the Angelico spot.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Carmella with the best Thesz press I've seen in a while. Looked more like Lou's than like Austin's.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I thought he went from UPW to OVW.

    ReplyDelete
  70. ...and the feed craps out. Fucking Network.

    ReplyDelete
  71. So wait, there are three solid wrestling shows going against each other right now? That's pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  72. He was signed in early 2001 wasn't he?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Jesus. Someone teach Enzo how to throw a realistic jab.

    ReplyDelete
  74. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    He was in Ready To Rumble as well.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I thought he was already on their radar in late 2000 and was signed in 2001.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    I've checked it out a bit, but I don't like the lucha style in general. It's just not my thing as far as the actual wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Is that why he had the extra role in Ready to Rumble?

    ReplyDelete
  78. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:14 PM

    And then in an hour, just TNA......

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wiki said he signed in July of 2001. So WCW could have still scooped him up.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:15 PM

    And then one joke of a wrestling show in 45 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Had my time frame wrong. My bad.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Welp, Indians game is over.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:16 PM

    They win?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Also, WCW stealing some underused talent like Edge and Christian and giving them jump would have been a possibility too.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I pretty much have to like Carmella since I was born and raised in Staten Island.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Damn. Should've seen that coming.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Didn't see it because the feed crapped out, but it can't be worse than Sid's worked punches, can it?

    ReplyDelete
  88. Losing 10-0 Top of the 3rd

    ReplyDelete
  89. Down 10-0 in the third!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Cass is looking less flabby lately.

    ReplyDelete
  91. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:17 PM

    So I wasn't on the open Mic when it happened, so I'll say it now. Owens power bombing MGK was one of the greatest things he's ever done.

    ReplyDelete
  92. They are getting better every week which is great because they are entertaining

    ReplyDelete
  93. I like looking at her, but Alexa is my girl #midbest

    ReplyDelete
  94. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:17 PM

    Meng would have remained WCW Hardcore Champion forever.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 17, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    Lol that's brutal. My eulogies.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:18 PM

    Not surprising. Here's a hot sports take: most teams have better players than they do.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm also enjoying Blurphy's jerk heel act.

    ReplyDelete
  98. That's when you switch to one of the other shows you missed.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I like to see a well executed O'Connor roll now and then.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I don't see anyone could have beat him.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Jesus. Someone get Road Dogg down to the Performance Center STAT!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I'm surprised MGK's management allowed that.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:19 PM

    Too bad MGK didn't even really sell it.

    ReplyDelete
  104. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:19 PM

    Best part was that I was watching it with someone who only cared about seeing MGK.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Actually, I literally thought he should watch some RD tape.

    ReplyDelete
  106. "Places that were ready to take over..." Uhhh, you were in TNA for like 8 years, Joe.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Didn't he sign with WWE before WCW closed. I seem to remember him being Hardcore Champ, leaving and it never being mentioned by either company

    ReplyDelete
  108. It was. He kind of spoiled it the next day by laughing about it on twitter.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Good promo by Joe

    ReplyDelete
  110. Or to quote Owens: "You should've stayed in oblivion"

    ReplyDelete
  111. Certainly looks a little more WWE than he did a few months ago, when he looked reeeeal ECW.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love straightforward promos.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Yeah, he jumped while he was still Hardcore champ. Then the title was just dropped by WCW.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Yep.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Dayum, quite the promo there

    ReplyDelete
  116. And they teamed him with Rikishi because...big islanders?

    ReplyDelete
  117. I wonder if we'll get a Survivor Series match with an all NXT team this year.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Three jabs, the Enzo shuffle, then a big right hand would get over as fuck.

    ReplyDelete
  119. So I'm picking Joe to win tonight...

    ReplyDelete
  120. This whole Owens - Joe thing is such a throwback, like Anderson - Valentine.

    ReplyDelete
  121. When he said that, I literally thought "Except for TNA"

    ReplyDelete
  122. It's almost like this joe guy has been underused for a decade

    ReplyDelete
  123. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:22 PM

    Or just tell him to throw chops instead. It's actually really hard to hit someone in the the face and make it look good without hurting them.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:22 PM

    I was actually looking forward to The Undertaker/Kane vs. Haku/Rikishi matches, mainly because I was a mark for big dudes back then.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Okay, so we all know Donald Trump is only half-seriously running for president (if that), but anyone think that Linda has already called him to try to get a cabinet position?

    Hey, if you can't get voted into office...

    ReplyDelete
  126. If he does, does that mean KO's been doing everything in the last few weeks as a Freebird style non-champ?

    ReplyDelete
  127. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 17, 2015 at 6:23 PM

    I'm thinking about buzzing all my hair off. Hair is too damn long.

    ReplyDelete
  128. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:24 PM

    TNA wanted to use a more bigger up and comer in Kurt Angle.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Credit card number got stolen last night. Fucking digital age...

    ReplyDelete
  130. Oh, I loved the team, especially invulnerable heel Rikishi. If they'd still had shows like Heat and Superstars then (or maybe they did and I never watched them), watching Meng/Rikishi kill skinny jobbers would've been awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Kids growing up emulating trash wrestlers like the Warrior. smh

    ReplyDelete
  132. Oh i was too, i was big on Haku/Meng then for no real reason

    ReplyDelete
  133. Destination America approved of this....

    ReplyDelete
  134. Got my Legend Killer haircut today!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  136. Chops seem to be falling out of favor. I can't recall too many people throwing them nowadays.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 17, 2015 at 6:25 PM

    Man Without Follicle.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I've always been fond of Haku.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Samoa Joe is proof once most people form an opinion they never change it.

    ReplyDelete
  140. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:25 PM

    And they should. He is an American you know, and he won a gold medal with a broken freak'n neck.

    ReplyDelete
  141. So for my vacation in Ireland this fall I'm assuming everyone looks like Baylor and Lynch

    ReplyDelete
  142. That blown-out Afro he sported during that run just looked bad-ass. The Faces of Fear were the shit back in WCW, too.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Actually acknowledging his previous name, too

    ReplyDelete
  144. Adam "Colorado" CurryJune 17, 2015 at 6:26 PM

    That's not a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  145. I loved getting buzzcuts but I feel like I want to grow it back to normal length it's always really awkward looking getting to that stage

  146. Could Hulk Hogan's greatest contribution to society by wiping Gawker off the map?

  147. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:26 PM

    Run away if you see anyone that looks like Sheamus.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I like Fergal's Tazz shirt in the old pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Match is non-title I think.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I know, right? Nothing gets the room's attention like a a nice, crisp chop. The declline of chops might have something to do with WWE legalizing closed fists, for whatever reason.

    ReplyDelete
  151. So...he's getting the belt..clearly

    ReplyDelete
  152. Macklin, Man Without MillionsJune 17, 2015 at 6:29 PM

    Calling him by his shoot name. Ur so kewl~!

    ReplyDelete
  153. If there was any doubt before, this is the clincher.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:29 PM

    Fantasy team is going south in a hurry. 0 for 10 so far tonight, while my opponent is 5 for 9. This guy even has gaps in his lineup because he hasn't adjusted for the injured players. I'm winning the week so far, but it looks horribly bad tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  155. He has to get it. Owens is too good for the smaller promotion.

    ReplyDelete
  156. This is how you build the next big guy right here.

    ReplyDelete
  157. He;s too good too but...they can hold off on him awhile

    ReplyDelete
  158. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:30 PM

    What's Evan Bourne doing in the ROH zone Taz?

    ReplyDelete
  163. Stranger In The AlpsJune 17, 2015 at 6:31 PM

    So I see Joe following Owens to the main roster to continue stalking him there. We could see Joe-Owens at SummerSlam, hoping that the Cena feud is done at Battleground.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Meanwhile on ROH, Japanese Cena!

    ReplyDelete
  165. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:31 PM

    Tanahashi? ROH just beat TNA with one guy tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  166. She is amazing in the ring...that is attractive enough for me

    ReplyDelete
  167. Deadspin is the only place that goes after ESPN. We need them. That philandering clown Hogan can take the heat.

    ReplyDelete
  168. She's what you'd call TV ugly, but she's fine.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Teaming with Japanese Ziggler.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Fuck...I forgot how they did the big profile on Roman and then aired it AFTER Wrestlemania. NXT would've booked him to run through their midcard like Corbin, while still putting him in with guys who could help him get his sea legs.

    ReplyDelete
  171. Macklin, Man Without FameJune 17, 2015 at 6:33 PM

    In honor of Judgment Day 2000 I am Macklin, Man Without Fame(until my avatar makes me famous)

  172. From what little I've seen, the other two that had the title match are better.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Not a bad idea it just keeps NXT so thin with Itami being out..It will be interesting how much they went to push NXT or strike while the iron is hot with guys in the big league

    ReplyDelete
  174. "Yep Mode" Abeyance Brown ©June 17, 2015 at 6:33 PM

    Even though the commentary made fun of ACH's outfit a bit, it's still more tolerable then Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  175. She's been working with worse wrestlers lately. Her matches with Sasha and Natalya are up there with Becky/Sasha.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Who would that be?

    ReplyDelete
  177. In fairness, those Lawrence/Upton pics were known to be illegally obtained.
