Re: BREAKING NEWS: Eric Bischoff to run SmackDown, Paul Heyman to run Raw (in real life, not storyline)

I agree that NXT has lost something. The weekly show doesn't sound very interesting these days and while the Takeovers are still consistently good, they don't have the spark they once did. I used to be dragged in by the characters and emotional storylines, but nowadays it seems to be good wrestling ...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Eric Bischoff to run SmackDown, Paul Heyman to run Raw (in real life, not storyline)

Vince finally responding to people who think he's out of touch by hiring two guys who ran wrestling companies that went out of business 20 years ago. Fuck, that's funny. I mean, Vince is the worst so if they have any real creative power, the show will have to get at least a little better. But they p...

Re: Goldberg vs. Undertaker?!

I don't like WWE in general, but their Saudi Arabian shows seem the bottom of the barrel for me. Both out of principle, and based on the cards themselves. Big clusterfucks and has-beens facing off? No thanks. WWE battle royales always suck, I can't imagine doubling the body count is going to make th...

Oh god, can you imagine the 25 minute crawl-fest he'd drag out of Ciampa?

Re: Double or Nothing

Yeah, Ted Dibiase seemed like exactly the kind of guy they would push to be fair. But he didn't seem the kind of guy who would make it. There are all sorts of guys that you know will be pushed as soon as Vince gets one look at them. But if they're not good enough to get over, they'll flop hard after...

Re: Double or Nothing

I remember when Rhodes was partnered with Ted Dibiase years ago, and everyone told me that Dibiase was going to be a major star one day and Cody was just a guy. Back in the days where there were plenty of people on WWE-Club, I think me and you were the only people who insisted that Cody was the one ...

Re: How would you book Triple H's retirement?

At this stage I'd just quietly take him off television. Can't think of a Wrestlemania match I'd be remotely interested to see him in.

Re: Jon Moxley headed to NJPW on June 5th

This is interesting. He doesn't seem like an ideal fit for New Japan, but I'm hopeful that he'll do well. Juice is probably a good person to pair him with, because he wrestles more of an American style that Moxley would be used to. Plus if Moxley doesn't end up working that well in New Japan, at lea...

Re: Double or Nothing

Also, I felt the same way about Jim Ross. I hated that they brought him in. He's a voice from a previous generation, and I wasn't enthusiastic about them relying on him now. Plus he sucked at doing commentary for New Japan. Kevin Kelly blows him away. I have to admit I was wrong after watching the s...

Re: Double or Nothing

It was a really good show. Worth going out of your way to see if you get a chance. One of the best American pay per views of the decade, I'd say. Particularly if you don't include Takeovers. There were a couple of teething problems with production, and the Battle Royale was a bit of a clusterfuck. B...

Double or Nothing

Anybody watching this tonight? Are people here following AEW at all? It seems like just what the American wrestling market needs at the moment. WWE product sounds just awful these days, and it would be nice if there was a weekly wrestling television show that was watchable. New Japan World tends to ...

Re: Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It's not just that the film wasn't what I wanted to be. I wouldn't hate a film just for that. I don't consider this a disappointing film; I consider it a bad film. The tone of the airport scene didn't fit the content. That didn't matter to a lot of people because they just wanted the usual mindless ...

Re: Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

How do the character interactions make no sense? And they weren't trying to kill each other until the very last fight scene, when it was only Iron Man trying to kill Winter Solider. Forgot to respond to this. Apologies in advance for what is (believe me) the short version of this rant. I could writ...

Re: Sonic the Hedgehog

I'm a massive Sonic the Hedgehog fan. I love all the old 2D games, I play Mania regularly. I watched all the cartoons when I was a kid, and read the Comic. But despite all that, I can't remember the last time I went from so completely uninterested in a film to actually kind of wanting to see it beca...

Re: Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The Dark World isn't even the one I have the biggest problem with. How are there multiple people here that don't think that Iron Man 2 was a bad film? I don't watch that many of these anymore, so I can't give a complete ranking. I've watched 14 of the 22, and found them quite samey for the most part...

Re: Can SmackDown help Roman Reigns character?

I don't think the Smackdown move will do much. It might freshen up the shows a bit, but I don't think it'll do anything for the Reigns character specifically. I do think they should be considering a heel turn later this year. People might say the timing is wrong after his cancer recovery, but if the...

Re: Sami Zayn is a GOAT-level heel

He's a great performer, but I just don't understand what they're doing with him. WWE has had a babyface problem for years. You can count the amount of naturally likable performers they have on one hand. Sami is one of those people, as you can see from the reaction he got here (being in Canada helped...
