ah whaaah ahhhh... fighter of the day thread...
Curry didn't win Finals MVP but he's sure got my vote for BOD MVP!
I didn't deserve Finals MVP.
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."
6-0 Cubs bottom 2 :(
That farm system.
He said it again!
How's the AAA team playing?(Like shit because all the good prospects have been called up)
I was very unhappy when that happened. In hindsight, they needed to pull the trigger.
I'm a little bit giddy for Owens/Joe. I'm probably going to be let down.
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.
http://i.imgur.com/ekaoz2P.jpgI love Kevin Nash.
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.
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.
Anybody else gonna watch the Ironman match?
I was a bit..why are they showing this again but oh yea he is a NXT guy
Looks like the rain let up a bit. Might need a canoe to get to the store
So, is Briscoe a face in ROH now or what?
I would if I had the network, I haven't seen that match in about 10 years. Only ironman match I like.
Jay? He's been a face in ROH for at least 4 years now.
Judgement Day 2000 after NXT tonight. Rock-Triple H Iron Man match, baybee!
There's one tonight (starting now) on Lucha Underground for their top title.
Really? Huh, thought he was a heel.
Haven't seen that in years.
Same, recording LU though for right after.
Watched the main earlier, since I work at 10:30, and it still held up for me. ****1/4.
Ricochet vs. Morrison, right? Pass, those guys shouldn't be going an hour.
If there's a Sunbeam Tiger I'm in
Better workrate than Backlash but a worse show.
I started watching ROH when Sinclair bought ROH and he's always been a face.
Lucha Underground has been on a role.
I'm such a Enzo and Cass fan boy...lets just get them awesome in the ring and make millions
Good GOD Carmella.
Join us after the NXTAlways room for a Hoss!
Giving Lucha pole position for the Iron Man stip.
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.
I haven't seen Alexa with Blurphy yet on the show. I look forward.
I know, really solid stuff week in and week out. The story telling is a bit different than wwe but that's fine.
I don't get it...
I don't want to ever hear Carmella talk again...
Her new outfit makes something else point forward
It's a TV show that happens to be about wrestling.
I have to wonder if WCW would have offered Brock more money for less dates, like he has right now.
No Booker, Nash, Steiner or Goldberg in 2003 either.Plus who knows where RVD ends up.
That outfit on the other hand.
Thanks. :-) have stuff to do though.
Alexa > Bliss
OH no they didn't interrupt SAWFT
Jeez. Their entrance rivals NAO.
He had a no-complete cause after he left WWE, no way he could have gone to WCW.
Had that same thought. He didn't hate wrestling, he hated the travel. WCW would have been perfect for him.
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
So like WWE, but good?
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.
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 .
She is sexually attractive in the fur and not much else.
Her head is weird shaped.
Then who does Brock face at a show like Starrcade? Steiner? Booker?
Yeah, except they treat it like a drama, and characters can technically die in story.
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.
I love the you look stupid chant is directed at someone other than Enzo
Only if could channel his '92 self
They already had AJ and Daniels in 2001.
Beau James tribute to Dusty Rhodes http://www.kingofkingsport.com/2015/06/wrestle-in-peace-dream.html?m=1
I wonder if Billy Gunn gave Blake that hairstyle idea...
Also, no guarantee John Cena signs with WWE if WCW is still around.
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?
Surely, he was in developmental before WCW went under though.
True. IIRC they signed Cornio and a couple other ECW guys just before they went under too.
AND YOU CAN'T TEACH THAT
All 3 had something to say.
A Carmella chant?
He needs to look up the Angelico spot.
Carmella with the best Thesz press I've seen in a while. Looked more like Lou's than like Austin's.
I thought he went from UPW to OVW.
...and the feed craps out. Fucking Network.
So wait, there are three solid wrestling shows going against each other right now? That's pretty cool.
He was signed in early 2001 wasn't he?
Jesus. Someone teach Enzo how to throw a realistic jab.
He was in Ready To Rumble as well.
I thought he was already on their radar in late 2000 and was signed in 2001.
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.
Is that why he had the extra role in Ready to Rumble?
And then in an hour, just TNA......
Wiki said he signed in July of 2001. So WCW could have still scooped him up.
And then one joke of a wrestling show in 45 minutes.
Had my time frame wrong. My bad.
Welp, Indians game is over.
and you can't teach that?
Also, WCW stealing some underused talent like Edge and Christian and giving them jump would have been a possibility too.
I pretty much have to like Carmella since I was born and raised in Staten Island.
Damn. Should've seen that coming.
Didn't see it because the feed crapped out, but it can't be worse than Sid's worked punches, can it?
Losing 10-0 Top of the 3rd
Down 10-0 in the third!
Cass is looking less flabby lately.
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.
They are getting better every week which is great because they are entertaining
I like looking at her, but Alexa is my girl #midbest
Meng would have remained WCW Hardcore Champion forever.
Lol that's brutal. My eulogies.
Not surprising. Here's a hot sports take: most teams have better players than they do.
Yes. Yes, it was.
I'm also enjoying Blurphy's jerk heel act.
That's when you switch to one of the other shows you missed.
I like to see a well executed O'Connor roll now and then.
I don't see anyone could have beat him.
Jesus. Someone get Road Dogg down to the Performance Center STAT!
I'm surprised MGK's management allowed that.
Too bad MGK didn't even really sell it.
Best part was that I was watching it with someone who only cared about seeing MGK.
Actually, I literally thought he should watch some RD tape.
"Places that were ready to take over..." Uhhh, you were in TNA for like 8 years, Joe.
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
It was. He kind of spoiled it the next day by laughing about it on twitter.
Oh, nice. So jealous.
Good promo by Joe
Damn, Joe. Cut that promo.
Or to quote Owens: "You should've stayed in oblivion"
Certainly looks a little more WWE than he did a few months ago, when he looked reeeeal ECW.
I love straightforward promos.
Yeah, he jumped while he was still Hardcore champ. Then the title was just dropped by WCW.
Dayum, quite the promo there
And they teamed him with Rikishi because...big islanders?
I wonder if we'll get a Survivor Series match with an all NXT team this year.
Three jabs, the Enzo shuffle, then a big right hand would get over as fuck.
So I'm picking Joe to win tonight...
This whole Owens - Joe thing is such a throwback, like Anderson - Valentine.
When he said that, I literally thought "Except for TNA"
It's almost like this joe guy has been underused for a decade
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.
I was actually looking forward to The Undertaker/Kane vs. Haku/Rikishi matches, mainly because I was a mark for big dudes back then.
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...
Man is Bray a nice place.
If he does, does that mean KO's been doing everything in the last few weeks as a Freebird style non-champ?
I'm thinking about buzzing all my hair off. Hair is too damn long.
TNA wanted to use a more bigger up and comer in Kurt Angle.
Credit card number got stolen last night. Fucking digital age...
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.
Man without....Nah. To easy.
Kids growing up emulating trash wrestlers like the Warrior. smh
Oh i was too, i was big on Haku/Meng then for no real reason
Destination America approved of this....
Got my Legend Killer haircut today!
Chops seem to be falling out of favor. I can't recall too many people throwing them nowadays.
Man Without Follicle.
I've always been fond of Haku.
Samoa Joe is proof once most people form an opinion they never change it.
And they should. He is an American you know, and he won a gold medal with a broken freak'n neck.
So for my vacation in Ireland this fall I'm assuming everyone looks like Baylor and Lynch
That blown-out Afro he sported during that run just looked bad-ass. The Faces of Fear were the shit back in WCW, too.
Actually acknowledging his previous name, too
That's not a good thing.
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
Could Hulk Hogan's greatest contribution to society by wiping Gawker off the map?http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/hulk-hogan-gawker-sex-tape-802999Fuck 'em for "We won't post those nude photos of Jennifer Lawerence and Kate Upton because that's morally wrong! Oh, by the way, here's photos of Seth Rollin's and Bret Favre's cocks."
Run away if you see anyone that looks like Sheamus.
I like Fergal's Tazz shirt in the old pictures.
Match is non-title I think.
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.
So...he's getting the belt..clearly
Calling him by his shoot name. Ur so kewl~!
If there was any doubt before, this is the clincher.
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.
He has to get it. Owens is too good for the smaller promotion.
This is how you build the next big guy right here.
He;s too good too but...they can hold off on him awhile
What's Evan Bourne doing in the ROH zone Taz?
Baseball is still on? I thought the Blue Jays won the World Series on the weekend?
Man, I just do not find Charlotte attractive.
Nope...copying the rock and cocking your fist before super punching guys is how you do it
Reborn Matt Sydal! Ya get it? Huh? Do ya?
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.
Meanwhile on ROH, Japanese Cena!
Tanahashi? ROH just beat TNA with one guy tonight.
She is amazing in the ring...that is attractive enough for me
Deadspin is the only place that goes after ESPN. We need them. That philandering clown Hogan can take the heat.
She's what you'd call TV ugly, but she's fine.
Teaming with Japanese Ziggler.
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.
In honor of Judgment Day 2000 I am Macklin, Man Without Fame(until my avatar makes me famous)
From what little I've seen, the other two that had the title match are better.
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
Even though the commentary made fun of ACH's outfit a bit, it's still more tolerable then Raw.
She's been working with worse wrestlers lately. Her matches with Sasha and Natalya are up there with Becky/Sasha.
Who would that be?
In fairness, those Lawrence/Upton pics were known to be illegally obtained.
