  1. Christ...I'm watching WWC when the US isn't even playing....

  2. The whole Angle/EC3 has got me wondering that if there's one match a promotion was so gung ho in doing, but unforeseen circumstances always stopped it from happening. Only ones I can think of are HHH vs Orton for WM and HBK vs Bret after WM12.

  3. I went to this bar/restaurant to pick up a to-go order yesterday. Everyone was watching women's soccer. What happened to this country?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I was catching up on all the Matt Perri nonsense I missed. One question: If THEFELINE Randy Orton is Perri, then who is Matt_INDEED!!!?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Move to Canada! You can enjoy your 24 hour curling coverage.

    ReplyDelete
  6. At least curling is a real sport.

    ReplyDelete
  7. A real Blue's Clues that's for sure

    ReplyDelete
  8. Trump defends his comments by saying "someone's doing the raping," which leads to the hilarious banner at the bottom of CNN - TRUMP: "SOMEONE'S DOING THE RAPING"

    ReplyDelete
  9. what did he say originally?

    ReplyDelete
  10. So someone doesn't like Matt Perri and every unflattering thing he posts is from this hacker, who also hacked into his bank account? I don't get it

    ReplyDelete
  11. There is no rape, only Zuul.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Any "sport" where my out of shape former roommate almost made the US National team in the first tryout isn't a real "sport".

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't either. The whole thing is playing out like a bad movie written by Russo

    ReplyDelete
  14. Japan is a way more entertaining squad. I hope they upset us again.

    ReplyDelete
  15. They look really good so far. Ball control and moving it at will.

    ReplyDelete
  16. One of the best subplots of this baseball season is how most of the trendy picks all suck. The Padres suck, the Marviners suck, the Marlins suck, the White Sox suck, the Indians suck, and so forth.

    This pic of the sharpshooter is iconic.

  18. So what is Lucha Underground. I skimmed that guys tl;dr post and I didn't come away with an understanding of what the show is. Is it wrestling with adult storylines or a tv show that just has wrestlers in it? U'm confrused.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love watching them put on an attack, great ball movement

    ReplyDelete
  20. ROH was very gung ho in putting the belt back on Cole last year, but his injury lead to them keeping it on Briscoe and now Lethal has it.

    It's hard to describe really. You just need to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Think wrestling crossed with WMAC Masters, a story staged like a show rather than like a wrestling sports-esque program

    ReplyDelete
  23. It's a very wrestling based show with Mortal Kombat like stories.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hmmm...the cavs just gave shumpert 40 mil. Lebron might be more Isiah than magic for a pg comparison

    ReplyDelete
  25. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best… They’re
    sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those
    problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime.
    They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”


    Of course, the "some, I assume, are good people" lip service tagged jussssssssst onto the end makes me laugh like crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Pirates were a trendy pick and they are doing pretty well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. do you know if any full eps are posted online? I'll try to catch a few this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That's why I edited it to trendy picks of mediocre teams. Pittsburgh looked like a good squad coming in off of last year

    ReplyDelete
  29. That's actually a pretty good heel promo. For a presidential candidate? eh...not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  30. And what a beautiful raping voice you have

    ReplyDelete
  31. LeBron seems more about getting his boys signed. So yeah, he's pretty much Isaiah.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I noticed that happens a lot in baseball. Teams spend all this money and go nowhere. Same shit with the Marlins the first year in the new park.

    ReplyDelete
  33. "You're the real MVP, Llax!"

    ReplyDelete
  34. Deadliest catch.

    I'm a day late on this. But they made a big Freddy not going back out on the wizard, and then they never, ever bring it up again. Does anyone else find that odd.

    ReplyDelete
  35. What the fuck are you talking about?

  37. A one or two month reign would have been fine so long it's Jarrett putting the next big babyface over.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Don't be a smart ass. lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. Eh, I just couldn't buy him as anything more than a mid-carder. Why give him the belt when Steiner was there?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Steiner is a guy who should be a long term heel monster champion. Jarrett is a guy who should be a quick transitional champion.


    Sure you might not like Jarrett personally, but Jarrett didn't tank business when he was champion in TNA. Jarrett/AJ Jarrett/Raven Jarrett/Monty Brown did pretty good business, but the problem was that Jarrett didn't put those guys over, but that's another discussion.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Jarrett going over Monty was beyond stupid.

    Keep the belt on Sid until SuperBrawl, have Steiner win it and build to Steiner/Goldberg at Starrcade.

    ReplyDelete
  42. lulz, this bot is using the picture of a girl I know from IGN.

    ReplyDelete
  43. It's amazing how many old washed up guys WCW pushed on top then. Even WWE today's believes in pushing young talent.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I was surprised when the real James Brown did show up on PPV later on this year or next year. I can't remember if this was before his infamous doped up CNN interview or afterwards. Dude died in 2006 (I think) and wasn't buried for like five years due to people suing for the body. So he won't feeling so good anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I still loved hearing Hogan challenge the Wall on the last Sullivan Nitro.

    ReplyDelete
  46. They sit Hogan out, but Russdo books Mark Madden vs. Mene Gene. Enough said.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think he robbed a Wendy's and escape capture by doing the spin-a-ronni.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Noting that he burnt his bridges - he created his own promotion.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I didn't miss Russo. No Russo meant more Hogan.

    ReplyDelete
  50. With the awesome ending of Kane returning to destroy all the heels.

    ReplyDelete
  51. kbwrestlingreviewsJuly 1, 2015 at 11:23 PM

    That's where I get annoyed with people who say WWE today is as bad as WCW was back then. If this was 1999/2000 WCW, Kane and Big Show would be feuding over the World Title with reigning champion HHH, who would never try. There would be no Cena, Bryan, Owens, Shield or Wyatt anywhere near the top of the promotion, save for maybe a few token appearances by one of them.

    ReplyDelete
  52. If not for reading these recaps, I wouldn't believe a wrestling company could willingly and consistently be as bad as WCW was during their final years. WWE can be as stale as old bread, but hardly puts on programming that reaches embarrassing levels of awfulness.

    ReplyDelete
  53. kbwrestlingreviewsJuly 1, 2015 at 11:47 PM

    Indeed. Also, you get good to excellent matches in WWE to make up for some of their boring TV. If nothing else look at the Cena open challenges. Those things would NEVER be allowed on Nitro but they're a huge treat on Raw.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I don't like all the faults of the company at this time being put down on the promotion. All the faults of the company should fall on the head of one man during this time and that's Sullivan. He chose to push all the old fossils around this time. At least Russo somewhat attempted to push some of the new guard more.

    ReplyDelete
  55. The numbers don't lie.

    ReplyDelete
  56. WWE never let Jarrett near the main. WCW put like 4 world titles on him.


    Which company is still in business?

    ReplyDelete
  57. I remember Steiner defending against Nash, and it took like a half-hour and every trick in the damn book for him to retain. That match should've been 10 minutes max and should've been Steiner beating Nash until he bleeds, then beating Nash just for bleeding.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Despite his personal demons, Scott Hall was over like hell here and throughout most of 2000 when Nash would constantly name drop him. Not that he wasn't ever over like hell but it just seemed the fans were really going to buy him as a World Champion contender just at the same time his personal life hit a brick wall.

    Also how WCW thought Jarrett World Champion was a better bet than Steiner World Champion nobody will ever know.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Damn, I read this and was all "this can't be right" but there it is: February 28th 2000. How about that.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Indeed. Yes, stupid decisions are made and the wrong people get pushed and there are shitty angles, but on the other hand you do have people rising above all that and making it a product which is occasionally worth watching. I'd argue that the in-ring product from the past few years has been among WWE's best ever, even though it's been impossible be emotionally invested in most of it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The baby would have turned out Japanese, at which point Mae would leave Mark Henry for Taka Michinoku. Then the feud would get dropped a month later and both would get repackaged.

    ReplyDelete
  62. kbwrestlingreviewsJuly 2, 2015 at 5:00 AM

    It's not that simple though. So much of WCW's issues are taking place because the company has been put in such a state that Sullivan was the only realistic stop gap option. He hasn't helped things, but he didn't have much left. When you lose the four young guys in one night, you don't have much to pick from.

    ReplyDelete
  63. He wasn't in the wrong when he left the WWF

    ReplyDelete
  64. Doesn't mean he was right either.

    ReplyDelete
  65. His contact had expired, so he should get paid.

    ReplyDelete
  66. If only WCW hired the right Madden... or even Frank Caliendo.

    ReplyDelete
  67. From what I heard, he was asking for up front kickbacks for money he would have eventually received in theory. Besides, it is God's money - it belonged to Him first. I'm only a steward of God's money. I know Jarret isn't s believer, so I can't used the Christian Worldview on him, but seriously he was asking for his cut on money he would have eventually gotten in theory. He blackballed the company to pay him "his" money up front. Even Jesse had to go to court to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  68. He was walking that fine line with Standards and Practices by this point in time.

    ReplyDelete
  69. They should have had him drop the belt at Unforgiven the month before

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't buy the whole Radicalz destroyed WCW theory. It hurt them sure, but WCW still had a fairly talented roster and new guys to groom and push. I'm sure Heyman would have killed to have worked with the young guys in WCW during this period.

    ReplyDelete
  71. kbwrestlingreviewsJuly 2, 2015 at 10:47 PM

    I don't think it killed them but I do think it was what finished WCW for good. You can't lose that much talent all at once and then just throw together a bunch of new stars. There were some pieces there, but that's too big of a hit all at once.
