New Year’s Eve Party Thread: December 31, 2020

You know what I say every Friday to celebrate that we’ve survived life and earned our weekend?  Well, never has it applied more than tonight, the last night of 2020. WE FUCKING MADE IT!

Hogan/Sting Starrcade 97….Poetic Justice?

Now obviously we all know how shitty Starrcade 97 was and especially the tragedy that was the long anticipated Hogan/Sting match. It was clearly just a case of Hogan being an ego maniac, management not having the balls to reign him in and Sting probably being TOO much of a company man perhaps. No way ...

We Brodie lee tribute

This may come off as rude, but do you think wwe is quickly planning a better Brodie lee tribute after seeing AEW have a much bigger tribute planned (not to mention the good being the elite tribute)? They said they’re doing their own, yeah.  I don’t see the point now to be honest.   from Scotts Blog of Doom! https://ift.tt/38U1qFG via IFTTT

Baby Doll, Brain & JJ

Hi Scott, 1. Why was JJ in the 4 Horsemen? You literally have 4 of the best talkers in wrestling in one group. He didn't seem to serve any purpose & seemed better suited for a mid-card manager slot ala Slick. 2. Similarly, do you feel Brain was best served as the manager of guys ...

Daily News Update – December 31, 2020

Time to HIT THE BRICKS, 2020. For as horrible as this year has been for me personally and the human race in general, last night’s AEW show was a wonderful catharsis for a fan base that needed one.

Hello You! Before we go any further, I’d like to send my sincere condolences to the friends and family of John Huber. 41 is no age and by all accounts he was a smashing bloke and loving family man.
