Wrestling & MMA / Re: WWE Hall of Fame 2018 Class
« on: January 16, 2018, 08:07:29 PM »
I would imagine cornette being involved with impact wrestling might make that something that is not doable for this year. Besides midnight express are not hof worthy for wwe.  I think a better tag team to induct into the wwe hof would be dudley boyz.

They inducted Flair as a Horseman while he was still under contract to TNA, so anything is possible.

I just figured since Corny inducted R&Rs last year, that turnabout would be a logical step for this year.

Ember Moon (formerly Athena on the indies)



Holy crap, I never put 2 and 2 together. I think she worked some Resistance Pro shows.

I'm pretty positive The Midnight Express (w/ Cornette) will get inducted by Ricky and Robert.

Kenny Omega signs another year with New Japan. Smart. No need to go to WWE right now when he’s still a big deal outside of it and his value keeps increasing.


Plus until Vince leaves to fail at the XFL 2, they’ll ruin him and make him ordinary.
I've seen Kenny do comedy. My hunch is they'd see Kenny say something silly backstage and it would be beaten into the ground onscreen.

Wrestling & MMA / Why aren't Rusev Day babyfaces?
« on: January 13, 2018, 01:40:07 PM »
They're one of the most entertaining acts in wrestling right now, including Japan.

Rusev, English, and Lana as a babyface stable would print money. I'm pretty sure Lana wouldn't have trouble leading Rusev Day chants.

The Bryan/Shane story is the most interesting thing in WWE right now.


I think SCB is right that it might be difficult for Bryan to get booed, unless they truly let him do things that a dastardly heel would do (See Jericho, Chris). They'd still try to overscript him.


That said, turning somebody heel so they can be humiliated on their way out is common in the traditional wrestling business.

Radioland Murders, 1994. George Lucas screwball comedy that also pays tribute to old radio plays

As I said in tonight's Wrestling Brethren podcast. Jericho is not afraid to pee on people's shoes when he's a heel.

It was more than random. That was the son of the guy refereeing the match.

Wrestling & MMA / 10 years ago, TNA did one of their best TV shows

Seriously, this is how I've been saying wrestling should be depicted for 10 years

I worked at a movie theater at the time. I have no recollection of a theater release. But good gravy Lori Petty looks like she's having fun with this role

Geekville / Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi
« on: December 15, 2017, 11:20:21 PM »
Short spoiler-free review: Really liked it. Unlike Force Awakens it didn't feel like a remake. Mark Hamill really brings it in his performance, and the story is quite simple in a good way. If I had any complaints, it's that the movie is almost TOO dark at times.

I think we need to be honest. That was not good. Whatever creative license Matt has, Monday night he was handed a script to do exactly what he did last week, but scripted.

Exactly right. Way too scripted. All you need for evidence is several seconds of nothing but laughing.

Tom Selleck, who had to turn the role down because shooting conflicted with Magnum, P.I.'s shooting schedule.

Yep.

I find it difficult to see how a non-speedster can catch a speedster in mid-action.

Let me try my hand at this

Who was considered before Harrison Ford for the role of Indiana Jones? Video proof exists.

Allegedly TNA/Impact/GFW/WhateverTheFuckTheyAreThisWeek are allowing any alumni to use their gimmicks. Whether they're just trying to be good people, or they just have no money to sue is anybody's guess. But in the end this is a good thing.

Bryan Alvarez compered it to Popeye. As a life long Popeye fan I can say he's not wrong.

Two more shows to go (Decided to see Designated Survivor instead of hour three.)

Yeah, space nazi's are a fun concept.. But this being the CW and all, the cynic in me can't help but wonder if there's a dig at the "alt right" burried in there somewhere.

Not that they've ever been shy about just being in your face about it, e.g. every time Cat Grant says something.


They did have a "Make America Aryan Again" line which was pretty ridiculous, but I've just accepted that's what they do.

Diggle was incapacitated at the end of last week's Arrow, if memory serves. He was taking a drug to counteract his nerve/muscle reactions.

The lack of Palmer bothered me. Maybe it was a budget thing. Same reason why I'm disappointed there was no Martian Manhunter.

That said I really liked it. Sci-Fi nazis will never get old. The fight scenes, while not graphic, were pretty brutal. Alex capped people point blank in the head. Even Ollie had sub-machinegun bursts to the gut.
