Wrestling & MMA / RAW 11/27

Paige, Sonya, and Mandy are called Absolution.
You're either with them, or you're against them.

Sonya and Mandy pledged their undying loyalty to Paige, because as Paige will tell you, she was the woman who started all of this.

Hmmm... why couldn't this have been Emma's story instead of the whining and the social media b.s. about the EXACT SAME THING...

Wrestling & MMA / SDL 6/7: Women's Division ... WTF
« on: June 06, 2017, 11:41:51 PM »
So.... Shane unveils a briefcase. Lana interrupted and wanted to be added to the match. Everyone laughs her off. Naomi basically says Lana has done nothing to warrant being in the MITB match (this is true).

And now because of light interference, she gets a title match at said PPV.

Huh?  :dash_mini:

Wrestling & MMA / Talking Smack: Interesting DB Tidbit
« on: March 08, 2017, 12:32:09 AM »
On tonight's episode of Talking Smack, there was another good segment with The Miz.

What I found odd was, Miz told Daniel Bryan that he "can't wrestle because of his head". Daniel responded "I can't or they won't let me? We'll see in a year and a half, and see what happens."

What could that mean?

Wrestling & MMA / WWE UK Tournament
« on: January 15, 2017, 07:36:57 PM »
How is no one posting about this event?

This was some of the best wrestling I've seen - and I enjoyed the hell out of it.
Not much "sports entertainment" and mostly old-school wrestling.
Cole on the call w/o Vince in his ear was great.

Wrestling & MMA / Pabst Blue Ribbon d. WWE
« on: May 28, 2016, 04:30:08 PM »
For those of you who haven't paid attention this week, WWE Shop released new merchandise for John Cena's return. The shirt design was a direct rip of the Pabst Blue Ribbon logo.

Here is the shirt in question:

PBR on Twitter called out WWE and John Cena...

After the tweet, WWE has since pulled the original shirt and replaced it with a new design:

Wrestling & MMA / Emma to have Surgery

Ruptured Disc in her back from Live Event on Sunday.

Wrestling & MMA / Black Friday (WWE) May 6 2016
« on: May 06, 2016, 11:17:48 AM »
No, not the post-Thanksgiving Shopping Spree... today could be a mass-release day for WWE.

We can keep the names and discussion in this thread. I'll update, as I know/see more from Twitter.

  • Hornswoggle
  • Alex Riley
  • Zeb Colter
  • El Torito
  • Cameron
  • Santino Marella
  • Damien Sandow
  • Wade Barrett*
* He was leaving in June, but reached an agreement with management to have his contract dissolved a few weeks early; that being today.

This sounds more like cleaning out the cabinets of things you forgot were in there. Not that anyone deserves to lose their job/income, but these (as of this edit) are not major players.

I love these in the small settings. I can usually make most of them out. However, the recent chant for Emma to match her theme song has me stumped. Anyone who watches regularly have an idea?

I'm taking my 6 y.o. Godson to his first wrestling show tonight. I hope he enjoys it, because it's bound to be middle-of-the-road for the adults.
It's not like next week in Dallas, that's for sure.

Sheamus will defend the U.S. Title against Rusev.

How much you want to bet Rusev wins, and they'll use it as a marketing ploy as to why you need to have the Network?
