Quick Note

The spambots are getting completely out of hand lately, so I changed the Disqus settings to "verified e-mail only" which should hopefully curtail it.  This also means that you need be a verified user and not a joke poster with a fake address, but then that's no big loss either.  We'll see how this goes.

    What about those of us with real addresses but nothing of substance to contribute?

    Are we still good in this new, future ready BoD?

  6. So here I am with my thoughts of you

    And this world I've left for me

    Stoic faces when I think of you

    And how I once believed

    So now you call me, but you know I won't let you through

    I've myself to deceive



    So leave the memories alone

    I don't want to see

    The way it is, as to how it used to be

    Leave the memories alone, don't change a thing

    And I'll hold you here in my memory



    So I find me in your garden now

    A sad smile for the scene

    And all the flowers that we planted now

    Taken by the weeds

    But in my minds eye, you know they still bloom for me

    They stand tall there, in that summer breeze



    Leave the memories alone

    I don't want to see

    The way it is, as to how it used to be

    Leave the memories alone, don't change a thing

    And I'll just hold you here in my memory



    In my memory, yeah



    So leave the memories alone

    I don't want to see

    The way it is, as to how it used to be

    Leave the memories alone, don't change a thing

    And I'll hold you in my memory



    You'll never change

    You'll never change

    You'll never change

    You will never change

  7. Has anyone noticed the rise in spam boys coincided with the loss of WWE's profitability? I'm not entirely certain the spam bots aren't some plan from Vince to make lost money back?

    Of maybe Scherer unleashed them to get back at Bayless for stealing his rumors?

  12. I just watch the rematch on Raw recently where Blayze wins back the title. It was good. But I think Blayze was tremendously overrated.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Trish and Steph at no way out was insane. They must have been working that match out for weeks ahead of time and practicing like Savage/Steamboat. Trish was nowhere near the worker she would become.

  14. Mister_E_KindaBuzzedAllBecauseJuly 26, 2014 at 12:36 PM

    No, he was hoping to learn of a successful online moneymaking scheme, but now Scott has shat all over that dream.

  16. The best Divas match ever hasn't happened yet because AJ hasn't wrestled Charlotte yet. Given time, that could be the Flar/Steamboat of Women's matches.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Anytime someone nearly kills themselves in the match, it takes it down a notch for me.

    Lita/Trish in trish's retirement match was better.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't seen an Abeyance comment in this thread yet...

  19. Pretty eye opening stuff. Really make you think.

  34. Seriously. How/why can anyone post so god damned much?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Watching promos like that are why I can't understand people who think results and titles don't matter anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  36. See No Evil 2, starring Kane, is a thing that's happening. So that explains the push.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So I guess even still some stuff is gonna slip through the cracks.

    As with any spam, SOMEBODY must or else it wouldn't exist.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm a real dead-ender when it comes to caring about results and titles being the most important thing, so I agree with you. At the same time, it helps having the best promo of all-time out there. Heck, even Magnum, who is nobody's idea of a primo talker, is able to sell a match and a title better than 90 percent of WWE's roster.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Best women's match period would be Akira Hokuto & Shinobu Kandori vs. Aja Kong & Bull Nakano, from the spring of '94.


    Not counting Japanese women...I'm honestly hard-pressed to think of anything better than Charlotte vs. Natalya.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yep. People seem to only remember Nitro-era Tony, but back when he gave a damn, there were few better than him. I think the passage of time and having to suffer through Cole/Lawler/JBL has given people a better appreciation of Tony's 80s to mid-90s mic work.

    ReplyDelete
  56. You better start sharing that money on the table then. Those posts were trying to make us all rich.

    Scott's Starrcade '95 review. The triangle match, Sting and Luger gets in the ring, and Tony effortlessly rattles off the last time they faced each other. SuperBrawl II, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Scott likened him to "Mike Tenay on steroids".

  61. Hold that 10 for Johnny B. BadJuly 26, 2014 at 1:38 PM

    Payback last year. Kaitlyn vs AJ -phenomenal, and they followed it up
    with a good outing at MITB as well. Trish vs Stephanie from No Way Out in 2001 was very good. AJ vs Natty Neidhart from Main Event this year was really good. And the woman's match on each of the NXT specials have been fantastic as well.

    ReplyDelete
  62. What I don't get is whenever I get a spam e-mail, it's always a HUGE amount of money (like $16.4 million). I don't know how anyone could fall for that. Maybe if it was like "You inherited $20,000 from an overseas relative," it would be more believable.

  66. We all agreed at work one day that if we hit the lottery, one of our purcahses would be one of those coke machines in our home.


    If McDonalds had them I'd probably never eat anywhere else. Around here I can get them at Moe's, Qdoba, BK, Five Guys, Wawa and if I drive an hour... FUDRUCKERS.


    Actually, if Fudruckers were closer, I'd never eat anywhere but THERE.

  69. The spam on this blog must be the Komen Scam's latest attempt to raise money for "breast cancer research" (also known as the CEO's bank account).

    ReplyDelete
  70. Things are starting to get TNA in here. CROSS THE LINE!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Watching the first ever Raw/Smackdown draft. So many things make me sad here: First, Curt Hennig in obviously fucked up on something, and he's still doing some crazy athletic stuff.


    Secondly, Vince gets to pick first because he "won a coin toss." Seriously? They couldn't have booked a match to win the #1 pick? A Flair representative v. a Vince representative?


    Third, they pick the Rock for Smackdown and he's gone a week later to promote movies, and soon to be gone forever.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Damnit, now I want to go to Fuddruckers.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I love how ESPN has had a proliferation of them since they required people to post via Facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I actually got an e-mail from the fuckers who created the fake FBI virus a year ago. It was listed in my inbox as "From The FBI - Watch Video To Avoid Arrest".

    I just laughed at it and said "fuck you" before deleting it without a second thought.

    Gmail inboxes are the best when it comes to being able to get rid of that shit.

    ReplyDelete
  75. It's funny that that was what they were going for yet both shows were equally awful until the end of the summer when Benoit and Eddie went to Smackdown and we got the Smackdown Six matches.

    ReplyDelete
  76. The first WCW title match on WWF TV should have been Booker T v. DDP, not Booker T v. Buff Bagwell. And it should have happened the following week in Atlanta, not in Tacoma.


    Just saying that.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Everything was pretty awful because they lost Rock and Austin right away, then the headline World title feuds were Hunter v. Hogan, Hogan v. Undertaker, and Undertaker v. Hunter.


    FUCKZING TERRIBLE.

  78. The Love-Matic Grampa!July 26, 2014 at 2:06 PM

    On the first "Old School RAW", Cowboy Bob Orton did a simple, no-frills interview with Mean Gene Okerlund that put the then-current roster to shame. Worse, the segment was clearly positioned to be a quaint "nostalgia moment", but Bob did a better job putting over his son AND the main event than all the video packages and 20-minute gabfests in the world. If you can get someone like me excited about a Randy Orton match, then you must be doing something right.

    Sometimes, simple is best. Not all the time, of course, but still.

  89. I believe it's a former name for Thailand, aye.

  90. Magnum vs. Flair wasn't planned for Starrcade '86. The original main events were:

    World title: Ric Flair vs. Ron Garvin
    U.S. title Steel Cage "I Quit": Nikita Koloff vs. Magnum TA
    Night of the Sky-Walkers: Road Warriors vs. Midnight Express
    World TV Title First Blood: Dusty Rhodes vs. Tully Blanchard
    World Tag Team Title Steel Cage: Rock & Roll Express vs. Arn & Ole Anderson

    I assume Magnum wins the title during the 1987 Great American Bash tour and drops it to Flair as Starrcade '87. Magnum feuds with Barry Windham over the U.S. title in 1988 and Lex Luger in 1989. By 1991, Magnum winds up in the WWF.

    Meh, I thought they could've done better too.

    ReplyDelete
  93. They show the packages they use to sell the PPV ON THE ACTUAL PPV. It makes zero sense.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Maybe Flair's, not Hogan's. But that's more on the NWA than Magnum.

    ReplyDelete
  95. How do you know this? If Magnum wasn't supposed to be in the main event, why did they change the main event?

    ReplyDelete
  96. Another in the "not necessarily the best, but certainly different" department: the Ivory/Tori hardcore match from a late-night Raw (due to the U.S. Open coverage pushing Raw back):


    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xa6r2_wwe-ivory-vs-tori-hardcore-match_tech


    This match had a little fire and hatred to it, which is something that has always generally been lacking in the women's division. Sadly, the feud didn't go anywhere.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Trish/Mickie from WM22 is probably my favourite, with Mickie/Melina from Backlash and Kim/Terrell just behind. Kaitlyn/AJ from Payback and Melina/McCool from NOC are two good ones I haven't seen mentioned yet.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Before the accident, Jim Crockett announced Dusty Rhodes or Ron Garvin would challenge Flair for the title at Starrcade. Leading up to Starrcade, Magnum had been feuding with Jim Garvin on tv. It was used to give him a house show opponent until the steel cage "I Quit" match.

    Anyway, the match listing is stuff I've heard over the years.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I really don't know. My inclination is to say that whoever it was is not currently on the roster, but I'm not sure at all.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Stop the presses. Scott rated a midget match.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Maybe if you stopped swallowing all that jizz.


    heh.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Only high-heel shoes can blind the Hulkster, brother!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Since there are rarely any feuds, today's wrestlers rarely have a chance to cut any promos to push their feuds.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Hold that 10 for Johnny B. BadJuly 26, 2014 at 4:43 PM

    Title vs career? Does that mean that they finish a Starrcade with Ronnie Garvin celebrating with the title?

    ReplyDelete
  105. MikeyMike, WitnessJuly 26, 2014 at 4:51 PM

    Wait, why Ron Garvin? If Magnum wasn't the plan, there'd be no reason it wouldn't still be Flair-Nikita.

    ReplyDelete
  108. AverageJoeEverymanJuly 26, 2014 at 5:19 PM

    It's good though when watching old shows. Reminds you of the reasons and lead up to the matches.

    ReplyDelete
  109. it feels "worthless" if they are just gonna ignore everything that happens in it for the movies.

    why be "emotionally invested" in something that is being portrayed as really not relevant?

    ReplyDelete
  110. They soooo need to bring back stadium shows..... watching the NWA at old Veterans Stadium was the best!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I still maintain, he wins the title at Starrcade '86, Crockett remains in business at least another decade.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Nah. Starrcade '86 comes and Flair retains in a Dusty finish and then retains again in their rematch.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Before Magnum's accident, Jim Crockett announced either Garvin or Dusty would challenge Flair at Starrcade. JCP wasn't going with Flair vs. Dusty for the 3rd straight year, plus Dusty had been feuding with Tully most of the year. With Magnum-Nikita getting blown off at Starrcade, that left Garvin, who was over in JCP's main cities.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Oh, you mean the people in charge of WWE? Because it seems like they're the main ones who simply cannot let go of that idea. The fans are willing to believe in the belts and in results, if only WWE would LET them.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Dear lord, WWE stole the idea for Night of Champions from the AWA. This show proves it.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Love the story on the AWA DVD of how during the show, David Crockett is trying to sign AWA guys over to WCW, pure balls there.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I always love the explanation that the only reason Greg was never AWA World Champion was that whenever Verne announced plans to do it, every promoter under him (who knew what a disaster Greg as champion would be) threatened to quit if he went through with it.

    Signs certainly pointed to Magnum going Up North at some point. I wonder just what his gimmick or character would have been. I suppose in that timeframe guys still got to keep their ringnames for the most part.

  121. But that was always been the case -- the Star Wars movies have been ignoring the EU as far back as the original Marvel Comics Star Wars series. Millions of people watch the Star Wars movies. Thousands read the EU stuff. The movies will always be the priority.

    Do you think it would be fair to the screenwriters of the new movies to force them to write new movies that fit within the context of hundreds of books, comics, and video games that a majority of the movie audience has no knowledge of? Who would want that job?

    You can personally invest yourself in anything you want as "canon." Like Shadows of the Empire? Well, you can count that. Don't like the Jedi Academy books? Ignore them. Make your own personal canon with whatever you're happy with.
