Comments

  1. Stephanie sent thugs to break into his house as retaliation for being arrested on Raw.


    That bitch!

  2. I heard Shawn Michaels once stopped six burglars in Syracuse.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Now that's an episode of Total Divas I want to see.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Never cross a McMahon!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Well I guess Bryan is a legit tough guy now.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Which is more impressive with a broken freakin neck: winning an Olympic gold medal or stopping a burglar?

    Hey, this might save his push!

    I'm kidding, nothing will, the momentum is gone, like that burglar from the general population.

  8. Pro wrestling, in fact, is very strong.

    He doesn't need a push. He's permanently over now. I don't know why everyone thinks that he has to be the second coming of Stone Cold to be considered over. It's not like he's Zack Ryder or something.

    ReplyDelete
  10. After he tackled the guy, did the people break into a spontaneous "YES!" chant?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Bill Watts would give Bryan a year-long title run after this news!

  13. I thought they were "thugs"?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Haha, well played. I didn't even think of that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Was Brie still in the car waiting for Kane to pop up?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Unfortunately Bryan choked one of the burglars with his necktie and was subsequently fired from the WWE.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That's the only time Justin Roberts has EVER been entertaining.

    That'll teach New Jack to rob the house of a fellow wrestler.

    JJJJAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWNNNN CEEEEEEEEEEENNNNNNNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I guess people should not underestimate some guys' look.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm pretty sure it was one of Los Boricuas.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't really understand why, in a time of budget cuts, the WWE has 2 announcers. Figure out if you want Roberts or Lillian and send the other one packing...but keep Lillian because I like looking at her.

    ReplyDelete
  23. TM CooltrainerBretJuly 25, 2014 at 4:33 PM

    Because it loses the big show feel if you only have the same announcer! Just look at the UFC! Oh........

    ReplyDelete
  24. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:33 PM

    Vince sending burglers to Bryan's house to see if he's defrauding the insurance company by faking injury.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I still can't believe WCW paid a ton of money for Michael Buffer over and over again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Phoenix Police Department were so proud of Daniel Bryan that they rewarded him with a Medal of Valor.


    Daniel wore it proudly for a few hours until HHH stripped him of the medal and gave it to Randy Orton claiming that was best for business.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Or maybe he thinks he has Rey Mysterio's uncashed checks......

    ReplyDelete
  28. No, hugs. They *gave* him hugs. With their fists.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Rey Mysterio really shouldn't have to resort to this... RELEASE HIM WWE!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Virgil's Gimmick TableJuly 25, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    And they squeezed every cent out they could to put him to use. Apparently TV title matches between Johnny B. Badd and Steven Regal were as big as Tyson vs Holyfield.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:38 PM

    I think we have our new MitB match. House scramble, where you send a bunch of wrestlers to try and break in and the first one to succeed gets the briefcase.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well, they do have the old IYH sets.......

    ReplyDelete
  33. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:39 PM

    Is Pillman's old house available?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I still laugh when I see that segment. Austin drowning a guy in a kiddie pool, which for some reason is filled with water in Northern Kentucky in OCTOBER, and smashing another guy with kids vehicles.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Welcome to the DoB!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Zeb Cotler will have a lot to say about this.

    ReplyDelete
  37. TM CooltrainerBretJuly 25, 2014 at 4:40 PM

    Can you imagine Bray Wyatt with Sister Abigail and a Glock pistol?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Meanwhile, Brie was in the car screaming in a highly unconvincing manner.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    Pillman pulling out the gun is still the most shocking thing I've ever seen in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It would explain why one of the burglars didn't get away.....

    ReplyDelete
  41. TM CooltrainerBretJuly 25, 2014 at 4:41 PM

    The slamming on the car door would\'ve gotten so much critique, had it not been for the gun at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well, Bryan only caught one burglar.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Unfortunately, Kevin Kelly ruined it all by screaming.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I won't anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  45. The faces he made in that segment.

    ReplyDelete
  46. In all seriousness, I'm just glad Bryan wasn't hurt running after those guys. If one of them had a weapon it could've had an awful ending.

    ReplyDelete
  47. He would have had the most respected deaths ever in wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:45 PM

    The authority will do anything to try and keep Daniel Bryan down. Not even Hulk Hogan would go this far.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Kurt's got nothing on Bryan now.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just had a funny mental image of a burglar hitting Hulk Hogan with the butt of a gun and Hogan just shaking it off, hulking up, slamming the guy, and giving him a leg drop before the cops arrive.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:47 PM

    I have this mental image of Hulk Hogan in the Mr. America disguise robbing a house.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I broke into a spontaneous mental "Yes!" chant!

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is nothing. I just saw a documentary about The Rock today at the local IMAX and he took on entire armies of bad guys.

    For what it's worth, Hercules is a decent movie. About a 6.5/10, somewhere in that general area. Just a little too serious at times.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's with 65% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:53 PM

    The only way I'm seeing that movie is if The Hurricane pops up out of nowhere and gives Rock a verbal beatdown and then flies off.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 4:54 PM

    "It was a special effect for the movie"

    ReplyDelete
  57. If he can tackle burglars, then why isn't he wrestling?

    ReplyDelete
  58. 49 at meta. About what I expected. I was surprised it was in the 50s for so long

    ReplyDelete
  59. Maricopa County? Yikes, those poor criminals

    ReplyDelete
  60. Yeah for real. That Sheriff Joe cunt is probably dancing in his pants right now. There's a guy whose necktie needs so
    e tight adjustment by Bryan.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Uncrusimatic_Buck_NastyJuly 25, 2014 at 5:32 PM

    that wasn't a burglar, it was his douchebag brother in law

    ReplyDelete
  62. He still hasn't learned to lay off the Grey Goose?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Poor JTG can't catch a break.

    He had been waiting for so long to reform Cryme Tyme with Shad Gaspard. Too bad Shad left him for dead in what should have been an easy 2-on-1 Handicap Match victory against a less than 100% D-Bry. I guess he has a built in feud waiting for him...

    ReplyDelete
  64. Guardians of the Galaxy, meanwhile, holds at 100%.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Given the angle he was involved in just before his injury, I'm almost convinced WWE thinks he's Ryder.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 5:43 PM

    Police reports state that Bryan had to fight Triple H first before he was allowed to tackle the burgler.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Imagine if Hogan had on the Mr. America mask when he was banging Bubba's wife.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Benjamin LeathermanJuly 25, 2014 at 5:49 PM

    I'm a journalist in Phoenix who attended the press conference. I asked Daniel that since he was able to catch and tackle the thief did he consider him to be a "B-Plus robber." He laughed. Swear to god.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 5:52 PM

    I once stopped a stray cat from entering my house without permission. #IAMDanielBryan

    ReplyDelete
  70. I just imagine the burglar running and looking behind him, only to be cut off from out of nowhere by Bryan with the flying knee; Bryan then leads bystanders in a yes chant.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Not as good as Pillman fighting off a crazed assailant with a broken leg.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    I can't wait to see it, and it's getting great reviews, but I have a bad feeling this thing is going to disappoint at the box office. Gonzo sci fi has historically underperformed at the box office. There are exceptions though.

    ReplyDelete
  73. To be fair, the guy's already reached the level of robber to the stars.

    ReplyDelete
  74. In all seriousness, this story makes me more convinced than ever that Daniel Bryan will come back strong and healthy, and still be goddamned huge (metaphorically speaking).

    ReplyDelete
  75. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJuly 25, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    Well, Kurt Angle...you no longer have the best "I did something with a broken neck" story in WWE history.

    ReplyDelete
  76. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJuly 25, 2014 at 6:11 PM

    Whats that? He's going to come back looking huge? Is he on the HHH rehab plan?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Will TNA send someone to break into Eric Young's condo?

    ReplyDelete
  78. You mean studio apartment he shares with 2 other wrestlers.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Daniel Bryan returning to such a monstrous pop that he gets a two or three year "Reign of Terror" dominating WWE despite carrying an extra fifty pounds of HGH in his gut would make me laugh so hard.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Just tell the TNA locker room that Eric Young's place is where management accidentally sent all their checks.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Live from the studio...
    Apartment!

    ReplyDelete
  82. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJuly 25, 2014 at 6:37 PM

    Yes but he had a gun

    ReplyDelete
  83. Imagine if footage if him lifting the mask and winking at the camera had been used in court after banging Bubba's wife.

    ReplyDelete
  84. A DQ would definitely have sucked.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Well, it had a good 15 year run. Was time for something new.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Watched the New Apes film last week and there was a terrible "serious" trailer for GotG. They were so close to sticking to their guns, now they fucked it.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I'd pay a burglar to break into Brock Lesnar's house...so long as I could watch the result.

    ReplyDelete
  88. And if he made the lie detector buzz when he had an orgasm.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Introducing, from Aberdeen, Washington, Daniel "The Burglar Beating Badass" Bryan!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Still the best with a broken *freakin* neck.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I legit laughed.

    ReplyDelete
  92. The medal had been placed into abeyance

    ReplyDelete
  93. Bryan didn't tear his quad, as well. I doubt he'd be jumpin' around like Your Olympic Hero.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 7:01 PM

    I think the racoon is going to be a tough sell. And Groot. Anthropomorphic animals work great in animated films, but in live action it just confuses mainstream audiences as to who the film is aimed at.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Virgil's Gimmick TableJuly 25, 2014 at 7:02 PM

    I've begun thinking, with the writers expecting people to believe Kane is a serious threat to people like Roman Reigns, that it's not that WWE uses Kane to bury people. It's that they really honestly believe he's a hot commodity and a realistic title contender.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonJuly 25, 2014 at 7:03 PM

    If Brie wasn't planning on giving him any ass before, I'll bet she's changed her mind now.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Charismatic eNegro Jef VinsonJuly 25, 2014 at 7:03 PM

    Brock's house has fences around it like Jurassic Park.

    ReplyDelete
  98. I felt they were doing a fine job with irreverent trailer. This one was the same footage spliced between serious announcement and dramatic music. Totally killed the jokes. It might have been a tough sell anyhow, but an inconsistent marketing campaign like that is gonna kill it.


    I think you're right, and I have a feeling it's going to be the first Marvel film to bomb. I'd love to know what happened with Ant-Man, because Edgar Wright/Joe Cornish were the main reason I wanted to see it (and it seems why Rudd/Douglas were on board), so I'm interested to see how that turns out.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Still only a B+.

    Cena would have shame the burglar with a rap, and then AAed him through a table.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Welcome to the Doom of Blog!July 25, 2014 at 7:09 PM

    Marvel didn't like the tone in their script for Ant-Man and their take on it apparently.

    ReplyDelete
  101. It's a work! (just kidding)

    ReplyDelete
  102. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJuly 25, 2014 at 7:13 PM

    I tear my quad all the time. I tore my quad this morning and I'm fine.

    ReplyDelete
  103. You can't believe WCW paid a ton of money to someone?

    ReplyDelete
  104. I do that during sex.

    ReplyDelete
  105. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJuly 25, 2014 at 7:23 PM

    Yeah...that made laugh out loud...at work no less.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Except those guys have been working on it for around 7 years. Besides, did they not realise who they'd hired?

    ReplyDelete
  107. I came here for the jokes. You guys have not disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Realistically, he was never built big but if you go back and watg during his crazy heel run with AJ, he was shredded as fuck. i think that's when he was still vegan.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Bret Hart once caught a burglar who tried to steal his WWF Championship belt. He carried him to classic scuffle and afterwards, at the police station, with tears in his eyes, the burglar confessed not only to the crime but that after defending his belt Bret truly deserved to be WWF Champion.

    ReplyDelete
  110. It must be a refreshing change of pace for Bryan to hold someone else down.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Triple: "You know, Vince, if it was me and Steph in that situation, I would've caught 'em both."

    ReplyDelete
  112. Cena would have taken a beating, then pop up and no-sell the burglar's offense

    ReplyDelete
  113. davidbonzaisaldanamontgomeryJuly 25, 2014 at 9:37 PM

    I do too; Lillian fits nicely now that no one airs Mr. Ed anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  114. How crazy would this all be if this was just a long-term booking decision?

    ReplyDelete
  115. Nahh, Val Venis' character having to sell he was interested in Nicole Bass was more shocking.

    ReplyDelete
  116. It was even more baffling that they were using him right to the very end, even after they had lost over 60 million dollars.

    "We might not be able to afford to keep Curt Hennig anymore but goddamnit we're still going to pay Michael Buffer his $5,000 per night fee to announce one fucking match".

    Nevermind that they had David Penzer on the payroll for roughly $500 a night and he always did a better job than Buffer.

    ReplyDelete
  117. At least they weren't in Bayley's house.

    ReplyDelete
  118. if they didn't, they should be ashamed.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Penzer is criminally under-rated. One of my favorites.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Abeyance, how's that medal treating you?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Kevin Nash is a member of the Blog of Doom crew?

    ReplyDelete
  122. oh, that's a cash in whenever card…


    "Remember when I stopped that burglary?" *panties drop*

    ReplyDelete
  123. that is easily the best comment I've seen on this situation yet.

    ReplyDelete
  124. its even funnier when you notice he tries to drown the only black guy there

    ReplyDelete
  125. Interestingly, I hear the feedings go down somewhat similarly.

    ReplyDelete
  126. What a weird way to shoehorn some non-sequitur cliche about marriage into a post about a wrestler stopping a burglary.

    ReplyDelete
  127. YankeesHoganTripleHFanJuly 26, 2014 at 6:34 AM

    Angle made that crack during the "Triple H Returns" episode of Raw. Always thought it was funny.
