  1. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    I'm only current through February, but I'll be caught up by next week.
  2. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    Adam's Pipe Bomb on WhatCulture has a great video saying the same about the great PG vs TV-MA debate - specifically that you shouldn't need blood and gimmicks to make wrestling fun (I say having just talked up Lucha Underground, whose first season Mania equivalent featured a straight up ECW match, a falls count anywhere match, and a match where fans at ringside got leather straps and were invited to kick the shit out of either wrestler who fell out of the ring).
  3. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    Fuck raw. Fuck smackdown. Fuck the brand split, and fuck WWE. I just finished season 1 of Lucha Underground, and that show reminds me why I fell in love with wrestling as a kid. Basic, consistent stories that are easy to follow and super relatable, and some of the best technical wrestling I've ever seen. Season 1 has a handful of old WWE guys who Vince never figured out how to use well and a handful of indie darlings. It's like NXT but with a bit more edge. Cannot recommend highly enough.
  4. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    I'm guessing separate rosters midcard and below, with main eventers/champs on both. That's my guess anyway. And as much as the split is getting the attention, let's not forget that they've also announced that Smackdown will move to Tuesdays and be live. A huge blow to TNA; not only are they head-to-head, but a pre-taped Impact up against live WWE is going to kill the Impact audience.

    We should strap magnets to their backs and put them inside a copper tube. The infinite loop of spear-kickout-AA-kickout could power a small continent.
  6. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    I would agree with you, but the Cena/Ruru match for the US belt is too perfectly set up. Cena will restore the US title to what it was before Kalisto took a big ol' mask-wearing deuce on it, while Cena doesn't quite fit with the other guys in MITB. That being said, what I've explained makes any damn sense, so it won't happen, and @The Real McCoy is probably right. BUT WAIT! What happens when Cenawinslol faces Reignswinslol?!?! THEY CAN'T BOTH BE THE CHAMP! Guess the heavyweight title is coming back with a brand split at summer slam
  7. I'd accept a picture of Axl's cock n' balls as the cover art to get those albums...
  8. The Story of Christine Chubbuck's suicide

    "I used to love her but I had to kill her" Chubbuck didn't commit suicide. Axl killed her when she refused his romantic advances. #CSIGNR
  9. Wrestling Thread Vol. 3

    I'm torn, and I do understand WWE's position to an extent. AJ is a legend, a sure-fire hall of famer, crazy over, and in his late 30s. Usually at that point, you book the guy to put over your up and comers. AJ is a weird case in that he is so over and such a legend but not for serving in WWE. I don't see any harm in letting him try to put Roman over, then have an epic feud with Balor when he comes up. That feud will put both guys over, and you can get the big strap on AJ once Vinnie's infatuation with Reigns has run its course.

    Adam Rose is officially unemployed. I thought that was a solid PPV. Every match went more or less as I'd have expected. Nice to see the Good Brothers get a win and look strong in the end to rehab their image after the shite booking they've gotten. The IC title match topped KO-SZ for match of the year in my mind, and Ambrose-Jericho was perfect (those tacks...ouch). I'd have preferred to see AJ with the belt, but nfw Vince is giving TNA's golden boy a strap on his first feud for it. Just not happening. Sorry. And that match was way better than Payback. Both kicked out of each other's finishers, both come out looking good. I'm for it. Only finish I couldn't get behind was Charlotte/Natty. That was awful. I know Emma getting hurt threw it off, but Dana's booking is nonsense. I was hoping it would be Lil' Naitch when the music hit.
  12. Aerosmith Considering Touring Without Steven Tyler

    I think there's more going on behind the scenes here. Most likely the band wanted to Aersosmith stuff this year but Steven nixed it to do his solo thing. Or it could be an image thing, not wanting to be associated with country or be forced into playing Steven songs on tour. Or, perhaps most likely of all, they can't stand him but putup with him for the Aero$mith.
  13. Skid Row mini-reunion! Sebastian Bach and Rob Affuso

    Here's the best picture of them playing that I managed to snag
  14. 05/19/16 - Vienna, Austra - Happel Stadium

    Axl is on his feet and still sounds just as great, so we can dispense with the "he just sounds better because he's sitting" theory. Is it July yet?!
