Hey Socko!!!!  How are you doing?

Not bad!  :D  Just got married not too long ago. Had to make sure it was the right girl before I did so!

How about yourself?

Wrestling & MMA / Do you think WWE is serious with Braun?
« on: May 06, 2017, 10:26:58 PM »
Meaning that after Braun loses to Roman in the eventual rematch, they'll continue to push Braun as a major force in WWE and not just relegate him to a lesser role like they've done to so many big hosses in the past, the most recent being Rusev?

Wrestling & MMA / Can the "list" gimmick still work for Jericho as a face?
« on: February 24, 2017, 11:36:44 PM »

I'm torn on this. On one hand it seems like something that'd only work for a heel, but would be really cheesy and cringeworthy as a face (like the Doink The Clown gimmick). Because how is a heel supposed to be intimidated or insulted by Jericho putting them on the list? Wouldn't that just be like a face saying to a heel "You're a stupidhead!"? Cause as a heel doing that gimmick, it's dumb. But it works, since that's what a heel would do.

But if anyone could make it work as a face, it'd be Jericho, since he can pretty much make something out of nothing.

What do you think?

My opinion, is that I think it would've died (and so would WCW), and then Vince would've attempted a revival sometime in the late 00's when people were nostalgic for wrestling again (I assume he would have served his sentence by then).

If he had been found guilty in the steroids trial, I mean. I often wonder this.

Wrestling & MMA / How do you think the future of WWE will play out?

Do you think ratings will steadily go down little by little over the years and then WWE will be forced to close up shop eventually? Or do you think there will be some another big wrestling boom eventually?

I can't believe I was ever a Punk fan. What was I thinking?

Wrestling & MMA / Has Vince given up on making Roman the next John Cena?
« on: August 27, 2016, 04:27:07 AM »
You think he's still gonna try to make him the next face of the company? Or has he just relegated Roman to one of the top guys, but not THE top guy?

Interestingly enough, TNA has lasted longer than WCW did (from 1998 to 2001). Of course, TNA never went mainstream like WCW did, so it really means nothing.


TNA is reportedly flat out of cash. Dave Meltzer offered another update on TNA’s financial woes on Tuesday morning’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, saying “it’s really bad. You wouldn’t believe how bad it is. When I say they’re out of money – they’re out of money.”

It was added that Aroluxe is the only company seriously looking at buying TNA, and they’re probably funding the next set of TV tapings even though TNA hasn’t paid them for the previous set. TNA has reportedly made presentations to other people to get funding, but haven’t garnered any interest. Since the news broke of a possible takeover by Aroluxe, which Ron & Don Harris are employees of, fans have been tweeting Pop TV executives with pictures of The Harris Brothers in a shirt with the Nazi SS bolt logo on it, in addition to their SS tattoos they got covered up.

TNA talent has been told that this week’s TV tapings in Orlando are still on, and not to believe things on the internet. There’s also concern that TNA’s brand may be damaged beyond repair, as their ratings are down 31% despite Pop TV being in many more households than their previous cable home on Destination America. TNA could be considered a bad fit with Pop TV, because their programming is generally geared toward the female demographic.

Meltzer commented on the story by PWI claiming if TNA doesn’t repay Aroluxe the company will take over majority ownership, saying it’s inconsistent with things he’s heard.

Wrestling & MMA / How do you think the ending of WM 32 will go down?
« on: March 15, 2016, 11:12:51 PM »
Last year the reason Vince had Rollins cash in his MITB is because Vince panicked at the last minute and didn't want the crowd to boo the ending of the show.

Do you think Vince will let honestly let Reigns get booed out of the stadium at the end of the night after he wins the Belt? Or do you think he has some kind of plan in place to stop that from happening? And if so, what do you think will happen?

Wrestling & MMA / Re: Is RAW mostly background noise for you these days?
« on: October 23, 2015, 04:10:03 AM »
The sad thing is, guys, is that I don't think WWE is ever truly going to get better until Vince passes. All we'll get are brief periods of brilliance, but that's about it.

Nice article, Freebird!

Wrestling & MMA / Is RAW mostly background noise for you these days?
« on: October 18, 2015, 12:32:15 AM »

When you watch RAW nowadays, do you actually sit and look at the TV the entire time it's on? Or is it mostly just background noise for you, where you only turn your head to look if something sounds interesting?

For me, it's mostly background noise. RAW is rarely "must-see TV" most of the time these days. I only watch it out of habit.

As for SmackDown? Well, that has become PURE background noise for me.

What do you think WWE would do? Would they fire him and pretend like he didn't exist?

Wrestling & MMA / Re: Hogan Fired By WWE

Always knew Hogan was a phony. Even when he became a "born-again Christian" I never bought it one bit.

Wrestling & MMA / Re: RIP Dusty Rhodes
« on: June 12, 2015, 04:08:52 AM »

I am truly shocked. I had never heard any reports of him being in bad health or anything. In fact, he had actually lost a lot of weight. This is just so sad.

He was someone, one of the very few, who transcended the old territory systems. That is, (pre WWE, of course) even if he never once wrestled in your area, if you were a wrestling fan, you knew who Dusty was. One of the most charismatic guys ever. RIP to a legend. Will miss his sense of humor the most.

I just keep thinking back to the match with the Rhodes brothers vs. The Shield and it's literally making me tear up.

Wrestling & MMA / Re: Should WWE have a MITB match for the IC Title?

Good points, ya'll.

Wrestling & MMA / Should WWE have a MITB match for the IC Title?
« on: June 01, 2015, 08:59:45 PM »
Since WWE is trying really hard to make the IC Title mean something again, I wonder if an MITB match for the IC Title would be a good idea. What say you?

Rusev's winning streak (as far as never being pinned) is the biggest part of his gimmick. If Cena pins him at WM, is there any other place for Rusev's gimmick to go but down? Cause once he gets pinned, there's no edge to him anymore. He becomes just another regular heel.

It's as if everyone beats him these days. He just seems like a borderline jobber to me.

Which brings me to another point.

As a Kane fan, it pains to me say that I think he should retire. Do you think he should?

Let's say that WCW had won the Monday Night Wars and WWE was forced to go out of business (and in 1995 and 1996, there was actually a real danger of WWE going out of business believe it or not according to Vince McMahon himself).

Would WCW still be in business today if that had happened?

Or would they themselves have folded sometime in the mid 00's? What do you think would've happened?

King of the Ring 1998. I can't imagine seeing HIAC in person. It would have been insane.

Oh shit, good answer. I would've loved to have been at that one too.

25 would it be?

Me, I wish I could go back and experience Starrcade '84 (yeah, I know this wasn't a WWE event lol), WM III, and WM X-Seven live.
