Wrestling & MMA / Hell in a Cell

They teased another Hype Bros split as they lost to Gable and Benjamin.  It was a pretty good match. 


The graphics for the PPV are awesome!

Wrestling & MMA / Raw Thoughts 10/2/17
« on: October 03, 2017, 11:24:50 AM »
Enzo is money!  Of all the things that happened that night, letting him throw heelish insults at the crowd and the wrestlers was gold.  I hope they don't screw up and take the belt off of him too soon.  I am more tempted to watch 205 Live than ever.  Promise me Enzo on the mic and I might watch.


Good job with Sheamus and Cesaro working with the Miz.  However, a PPV main that consists of the Tag champs and IC champ together doesn't sound too tempting.


Mickie James still has it.  I credit Nya for working better than normal.


Strowman devours another top tier wrestler.  I haven't read the sheets on what's next but I am curious.


So Balor and Wyatt aren't done.  Bray says she wouldn't lie and he has more to show Wyatt.  New character intro coming soon?


The SHIELD shot at the end was good for a buildup.  My guess is we will have some tags with Roman and 1/2 Tag Champs in the next few weeks.


Not the best show, not the worst.   I miss Joe!!!!!!!

Wrestling & MMA / Smackdown Nakamura
« on: September 07, 2017, 06:09:56 PM »
If there's ever been someone in WWE that's lightning hot their first year, it's him. I cannot figure out why he's had several amazing Smackdown wins that deserved to be on PPVs.  If he's hot in the US and Japan, wouldn't that be a win for the WWE? 


The man who beat Orton and Cena is predicted to lose against the current Champ.  It's like McMahon is trying to prove something to himself.  I understand it's a business but this will be remembered as a low spot in Smackdown history.


Does it feel like the product has been damaged?  If so, can a Nakamura title run fix it?

Wrestling & MMA / Raw 8/29/17
« on: August 29, 2017, 11:16:30 AM »
First, this was a good show.  Raw is having a better build to No Mercy than any other PPV this year.   Why did it take Summerslam for them to get there.


The IC Battle Royal was a little predictable but very fun to watch.  This one match created and continued a few angles, as it should. I credit Dallas and Axel for looking like they might make it to the last 3.  Hardy and Miz should putt on a good match next week.


Heyman is on fire with his promos again.  He did a great job at putting over Strowman.  Brock handled his own well.


The tag team title match single matches are a little redundant but that's too be expected. 


Putting Cena and Reigns against each other is brilliant to get the fans to pick a side.  It seemed like Roman was holding his own in the promos but Cena sealed the deal at the end.   This could be interesting jaw-jacking until the show.


Please dear God in Heaven, let this be a face turn for Bliss.  Watching her match with Sasha was reminiscent of the Raw ME of Trish and Lita.  Bliss is a natural champ and I think the fans will allow her to be the top face.  That being said, it's time to turn the Boss.

I think the only matches I want to see are the tag titles and the World title.

I just finished the first episode. So far so good. Sigourney Weaver has such a presence.  The first scene felt like The Highlander.

Wrestling & MMA / Raw 8/7
« on: August 08, 2017, 06:14:50 PM »
This show seemed a little misguided. 


Lesnar going after Miz and co. seemed wrong, even with Paul's explanation.


Poor Bailey.  This really screwed with the Women's title.


The highlight seemed to be Rollins blowing off Ambrose.

General Discussion / Disney replaced Kermit
« on: July 14, 2017, 09:44:43 AM »

The gist, Disney called him, explained there were issues and told him bye.  Replacing Henson was rough. Kermit was a huge part of my childhood.

Wrestling & MMA / Hardys referring to brokenness
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:06:07 AM »
On Raw, several catchphrases from the Broken era were spoken from the Hardys' mouths.  Is there any word on what is happening?

Wrestling & MMA / Impacts ratings are improving
« on: May 14, 2017, 10:37:41 AM »
Ugggggggghhhhhhh...


So Jarrett goods to look like an ace for combining GWF and Impact matches.


I think it's more the talent on the show.


I try to watch but turn it off as soon as Karen Jarrett shows up on the TV.


Is Jarrett really going to help save this show?

Wrestling & MMA / Billy Corgan reported buys NWA
« on: May 02, 2017, 02:16:09 PM »
According to the sheets.


He's buying a company that was licensing only without a TV contract.  It's almost like starting over.  Did he lose a bet or take a dare?


Is there a way to revive the Old NWA method of one big Company governing others at this point?  Would anyone want to see that?

Alexa Blyss has taken the baton and ran with it.  I expect Vince to keep her in the Women's forefront as long as she stays uninjured.


They teased the Hardy's being broken.  Smart move on paper but horrible in execution.


Bray Wyatt and Balor are money.  This could be an incredible Summerslam match.


Now we get to the slow burn of Braun and Brock.


This show was better than the Raw after WM.

Wrestling & MMA / WWE Payback
« on: April 30, 2017, 08:00:23 PM »
The pre-show had Enzio pinning Gallows. I thought that ended on a stupid note.


They also had Miz TV with Balor. Looks like Miz will be fed to him soon. 


Matt is teasing the Broken bit a little more.

General Discussion / 13 Reasons Why
« on: April 20, 2017, 07:13:58 PM »
Netflix new series is about a girl who commits suicide and finds a unique way to communicate with those she felt played a part.  I've had friends who read the book and felt that it attacks the issues of bullying, sexual harassment and even assault.  It also examines all sides of an occurrence.  I'm on episode 7. It reminds me of the hell I went through in school.

Wrestling & MMA / Layfield's bullyisms makes the news again.

The writer was smart enough to say it was WWE to garner attention.


I've heard JBL insult wrestler's abilities on live radio.  I've heard the many rumors.


I doubt anything comes out of this for him but I think maybe it should.

Wrestling & MMA / Smackdown 4/5
« on: April 05, 2017, 09:32:10 AM »
This night was one of the biggest payoffs for NXT.  We saw the debut of the Perfect 10, which the audience bit on immediately.  Then Nakamura had one of the best main roster debuts ever!!  It helped the audience knew his music and reacted once they showed the violinist on the ramp.  He didn't even have to wrestle or say a word, he just had to show up.


AJ claiming he didn't want to leave Smackdown seems like a foreshadowing.  I liked it when he pretended to hit Shane and laughed.  He really has the ability to steal shows and ppvs.


No word from the tag teams?


I find it funny that Korbin won the match that Dean is a specialist in.  Perhaps he is moving to Raw?


Miz and Maryse came out to rebuild their heat.  I wonder if Nakamura and Miz will start a program. 


I think Alyssa may be moving, she can help with the promos on Raw and someone like The Boss can help elevate the ring work on Smackdown. 


Nice to see Rowan back, that apocalyptic sheep mask was awesome.  I hope Harper turns on Orton but I think he's about to start a solo run again.

Wrestling & MMA / MaWM Raw 4/3/17
« on: April 04, 2017, 02:02:38 PM »
We had a nice surprise with the revival being revealed.  I think it would be awesome to see them wrestle the Hardyz.  Maybe it will happen someday.  The New Day has officially been bucked as the Top Dog of tag teams.


I really believe Vince loves pissing people off.  First he has Roman come out after a Taker montage, then he swerves Teddy Long being the GM. 



It was nice to see Emma back but the Raw women's division looks a little lost right now.  I think it was too soon to try to make Brook a face. Was Bayley overselling after the match?  It looked legit.


Heyman knows how to talk, what a promo!  It's a shame that Strowman has been defeated.  He comes off as a place-holder for Reigns and nothing more.


The tag match at the end was bland.  It seemed like a filler match.  With all of the stories, they could have progressed these a little further I thought.


Swapping some of the roster next week should be interesting.  Perhaps, they are losing Balor?  He doesn't have a place to fit and he could have some great matches with AJ.

Wrestling & MMA / NXT Takeover Orlando
« on: March 30, 2017, 01:09:13 PM »
I am pretty sure that Vince told HHH to play it safe this time.  The last Takeover took the wind out of the Royal Rumble.  It was that good!  The card seems to bring the talent but I expect the matches to be toned down a bit especially with a 7 hour show the next day. 

This card also tells how badly their talent has been depleted in the last year.

SAnitY vs. Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose, Roderick Strong & Ruby Riot
Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Aleister Black
The Authors of Pain (c) vs. DIY vs. The Revival
Asuka (c) vs. Ember Moon
Bobby Roode (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Geekville / Doomed:... Fantastic 4. (2015).
« on: March 27, 2017, 07:22:35 PM »
It's currently on Hulu.

This was the biopic about the film that never happened back in 1992.  They interview the crew and staff. It's very sad to see how Hollywood works sometimes. I'd still like to see a non-pirated copy.  Without this film, I don't think the others would have happened.  Supposedly the script was very close to the comics.
