Smackdown – June 2, 2006

Smackdown Date: June 2, 2006 Location: Rose Garden, Portland, Oregon Commentators: Michael Cole, Tazz Things are certainly happening around here but I don’t know if I would call them interesting.

Upcoming reviews

Hope you enjoyed the assorted animation, film and wrestling reviews this past week. As I head back to work, my reviewing regularity will reduce, but I have a few things in mind to review.

Question

Hello again, I hope all is well with you. Which storyline are you more intrigued with? Reigns or the Jericho/MJF storyline? I'm kinda divided, but, I feel Reigns has really hit it out of the park. Reigns has turned into the best heel in years and made Uso a top heel in the process. I ... Read more from Scotts Blog of Doom! https://ift.tt/35PnQXf via IFTTT

Cody

I saw a commercial for the crappy game show Cody is hosting and they refer to him as Cody Rhodes several times. How are they able to do that but AEW is not? Is this something WWE could go after them for? Cody got the name back a while ago apparently, but just chooses not ... Read more from Scotts Blog of Doom! https://ift.tt/323zTiG via IFTTT

RIP Sean Connery

And what other way could I pay tribute to him… Apparently Burt Reynolds thought Norm’s impression of him was hilarious and actually wanted to do the show himself but never got the chance. from Scotts Blog of Doom! https://ift.tt/3mD4knC via IFTTT

Mike Reviews Shows Considered To Be Stinkers – WCW Halloween Havoc 1995 (29/10/1995)

Hello You! Back again with another Stinker Review, with today’s request coming courtesy of Adam Gray.

Great North Wrestling Shoot Interview with Raymond Rougeau

Getting towards the end of my week off, this is an interview from 2016 by Hannibal, who isn’t really a good interviewer, but Ray is an excellent and detailed speaker, so he more than makes up for it.

Daily News Update – October 31, 2020

Happy Halloween!  We are actually opting out of sending our daughter trick or treating tonight, and we’re not giving out candy either because Covid sucks and there’s just no point in taking unnecessary risks towards spreading it.  2020 is just a non-stop kick in the nuts every day.

Match Review Compilations

Hey Scott Just piggybacking off of the guy who recommended WALTER vs Ilja (it's great) and also wondering if you've ever considered doing rants on a few individual matches in lieu of a whole show.

Friday Night Party Thread: October 30, 2020

Feuds about the better man

Hey Scott, What's your favourite example of a feud that was purely and simply about two guys determined to prove (with or without the title) that they were the better wrestler?

My favorite thing about AEW

The company doesn’t treat us, or its characters like morons. With regard to the MJF/Jericho build.

Raven leading ECW Invasion in 1997?

Raven was actually treated like a fairly big deal for his WCW debut.
