Totally fake but kinda neat. This would never fly in WWE.

I'm a huge HBK fan, and I have been slowly buying some of the Attitude-era figures (I only have Bret Hart, Diesel and HBK). Plus I absolutely love how great of a job Mattel did on the HBK tights.

Miss Elizabeth is only in case set B, which is apparently only available in Target stores as of right now -- if they even got their cases yet. Walmart is getting case set A for right now, which has everyone in it except for Liz.


Wish they had just left Elizabeth as a Matty exclusive if they weren't going to put her in every case. The rest of that set is pretty great all around at least. Saw the new basics set in Target today and was pretty amused that Eve sold before any of the Brock Lesnars in the case.

And I thought the Impact Zone -IS- where they used to tape WCW Saturday Night? If true it was funny to hear Mean Gene say to the Macho Man once "Welcome to atlanta" in a debut interview I believe.

Heck Impact used the old WCW introduce wrestlers announcer for a while too.

Bischoff talked about moving the tapings to Orlando in his book, but I don't remember the exact time.

His book is actually a decent read. Sure, there's some revisionist history, but it's not the worst wrestling bio that I've read.

I don't know if Saturday Night ever moved to the studios in Orlando looking over the stuff on historyofwwe.com. I know they used to tape in Atlanta and Pro and Worldwide were taped in Orlando.

Haha, yeah, I notice a trend that the female figures tend to sell faster than their popular male counterparts. Technically, Liz is in every case (b), but not the cases they ship to Walmart (case a) .. sadness.

I think they used them for the WCW Worldwide syndicated show.

If competition really matters to you, keep your money in your pocket and don't go when WWE comes to town. Go see TNA when they do.

there are enough venues in the US, TNA will be fine. Still makes WWE pigdogs for shying away from direct market competition.



Indeed, sir.

More people need to realize this. A lot of people complain about WWE yet still buy their merchandise and watch the shows live. In that regard, WWE is like an abusive relationship.

At most, I contribute one view to some of their weekly YouTube clips of their shows. And if they didn't upload them so quickly, I wouldn't even watch. In terms of money, the most I have given WWE in the last five years is $30 for WWE 13—which I regret because it's terrible.

In light of recently watching Cornette's interviews, I want to support ROH but they are not like TNA or WWE and don't upload clips of their shows to YouTube. I did just buy Final Battle 2012, tho, which I guess helps. We'll see how long I remember to check their shop. (Over 2 months +150, Under 2 months -110).

Yea Universal studios did Worldwide tapings. They used to tape Sat night at center stage in Atlanta in the early 90s but then they took it on the road to towns that were too small for Nitro.

I've used that analogy more than once in the past. It's a good one because it's accurate.

In the Kassius OH NO! department, he lost two teeth in a match with Xavier Woods. Link to the pics here - http://www.wrestlezo...urtesy-of-match

I like how Kassius is mugging like he's going to be getting some quarters under his pillow while Xavier's got a sad puppy dog look. Best is the med staffer's uncomfortable stance holding some guy's teeth as these three goofs get a pic of it like it's some sort of tourist attraction.

Is Xavier Woods FKA Consequences Creed?

You all should have seen when Adam Cole had his teeth knocked out by Kyle O'Reilly. At one point he literally had a pressurized stream of blood shooting out of his mouth. Here's a clip that shows what he looked like after it happened (I couldn't find a clip with the moment I described).

Yes, Xavier Woods is/was Consequences Creed. I actually watched that Adam Cole/O'Reilly match not too long ago when I made a post about wanting to watch more ROH events. I had my friend over watching and our jaws were dropped for that entire match.

I actually got to see Xavier Woods in the indys once. He was doing a straight up Rocky 4 Apollo Creed gimmick. Dancing to the ring and all. Was so so good. Really wish I would have got this on video too. I think it was around 4 years ago? Wasn't too long before he got signed to
TNA.

'Tis a most apt comparison, sir.

I think Creed/Woods is the guy who either has a PhD or is in process of completing his PhD. Solid back-up plan in a business where most people seem to not have one. Hats off to any of them who are content working the indies as a career choice. I think it's depressing.

Also Cobb County Civic Center which ECW did some shows in. I went to an ECW show in Rome like pimpster mentioned and an indy show in Rome and they both did well. Both are north of the metro area but still accessible. Rome in particular is a good small-medium venue for wrestling.


Looks like TNA will be running the Gwinnett Center (sp?) in Duluth. Not sure how close Duluth is (I initially misread it as Decatur). Anyway, there you go.

Just my luck. I already have tickets for a concert the same night Impact will be in town. :censored: That really sucks.

myke, the full name is The Arena at Gwinnett Center but everyone just calls it Gwinnett Arena. TNA held Bound for Glory 2007 there and it was a great show. I also saw a SD there years ago (the Lesner/TBS/Matt Morgan/Nathan Jones faction era) but it was only OK. TV tapings definitely don't have the same feel as a live show. Duluth is a straight shot up I-85 N from Atlanta, heading NE. I-85 rush hour traffic is horrid so getting to a show there on time requires leaving extra early. To get there I actually would drive east on state highways with a lot of lights so it's extra slow.

Read a house show report from last night. Miz botched a stalling suplex on Punk and it sounds like Punk got a concussion out of it.

I saw a Bud Light commercial the other day and it oddly helped me contextualize Miz's face turn.

It was a commercial for Bud Light featuring the DJ/rapper (?) Pitbull. I reacted by thinking "wait, there are people who like this shit?!?!?!?" - "this shit" being either Bud Light *or* Pitbull. I can't wrap my head around people making their way through life thinking either of those things are a good idea.

But I couldn't deny that they are both, despite my best wishes, terribly popular things.

So that's how I rationalize Miz being pushed as a face. I don't get it, I can't even imagine it being a good idea. But like Bud Light, and like Pitbull - some people will get into the dumbest shit imaginable - and in large numbers, too.

So I guess one of the things Bruno had a hang-up about was the lack of a physical HoF building...

"The other thing I asked and they are planning on doing it down the road is a building. A building that people can visit. It’s down the road like I said but it’s in the works," Sammartino said.


Not that I have any inside track or anything, but I get a feeling HHH or whoever was really working Bruno pretty hard - not to sound all smarky with my terminology, but that is the best way I can put it. "Oh, we've cleaned up our product, there is no vulgarity" (unless Cena or Rock or Vince decide otherwise) "Oh, we're going to do a Hall of Fame building" (someday).

Exactly, this won't happen anytime in Bruno's lifetime.

They're actually leaving money on the table on a daily basis by *not* having a physical HoF building by now. It's not like one of those WWF New York or Niagra Falls bullshit things... as long as it's got a decent admission price (say, $10 per adult, $5 per child under 12), without a tacky restaurant attached to it, you know tons of people would check that place out.

WWE can't do "not tacky."

I challenge you to convince me otherwise.
