I remember a few years ago it went as high as 16 in some years. I guess that didn't work out. Maybe with the Network they'll try it again.

I finally watched the Ultimate Warrior tribute on the Network. A lot of fluff but I was moved by how absolutely heartbroken some of the people from wrestling families were during the salute. Cody was losing his shit despite the WWF being an insignificant part of his dad's career.

 

Also, why the hell is Jushin Liger still wrestling? I guess it's because he's not even 50 but he's been wrestling literally for decades.

Liger wrestles largely to scout for talent around the world. He's still got a name and can go despite his age and injuries.

 

As for Impact...

 

TNA took a show there was no reason to care about beforehand, and didn't really move that needle much after - despite this being the go-home show. Lashley had by far his best match in many years with Kenny King - this thing was a blast to watch and worth going out of your way to see. Taz and Tenay followed that up with a glorious discussion of business cards in 2014 or 2013 - whichever year Taz lives in. The Anderson-Shaw skits were Claire Lynch-level bad. RAY GUNNER vs. Beer Money was a blast, but made me sad that Storm's losing on PPV and Roode-Bully will be hurt by the table stip. The Knux angle of whatever it was, ended with as little hype as it began with or maintained. The Shaw character also became officially career-killing. Bobby's been invading Bully's world, but what will happen if BULLY INVADES BOBBY'S WORLD!? Abyss got his career back thanks to Magnus hitting him in the balls. Abyss doesn't just win world titles by DQ, he also regains his career thanks to them.

Small question Jay. Why do you post so many more screens here than on the thread on Giant Bomb? In that thread you have like 2 screens, here you have like 6. It's weird considering how much heat you have here for your reviews.

As much as it pains me to say this I must admit that I am starting to like Rybaxel. Ryback sounds like a somewhat intelligent guy when he is allowed to talk. He pulls off the smart-ass attitude really well and it's rubbing off on Curtis Axel. He's starting to open up a bit and actually show a little depth to his character.

Your mission is to go on WWEN and watch Mr T vs Kevin Sullivan at Starrcade 94. I don't think I've ever literally laughed outloud at a match before, but I did at least 3 times here. The most glorious of trainwrecks, and a match that just keeps on giving from the moment it starts.

Going to have to say, without being too specific, my two favorite moments were the fan ruining everything, followed by the unintentional de-pantsing. Five fucking stars.

What the hell did I just watch. Cameraman down, teabag shot, and Mr. T pinned someone with both hands tied in front of him. I love it when a plan comes together.

I think this is interesting enough to warrant a post.

 

 

Who would have guessed that the gravedigger himself would be good for WWE.

If it makes you feel any better, I'm usually entertained by your posts and I don't get the hate.

Though I'm almost positive you're Zen Davis.

As a former teacher, I find it hilarious that Triple H still holds a mic while speaking in a lecture hall.

 

Trust me, I get it - but the visual of dudes holding microphones while screaming at each other has always struck me as "off," which is, in my head, one reason why I preferred old-style backstage wrestling promos (besides the fact that it allows for more body movement and different gestures if you aren't anchored by a microphone in one hand).

 

But it looks silly to me on wrestling TV (two men who ostensibly HAAAATE each other, standing and talking shit to each other, making sure to only use the microphone to talk), it looks silly in a classroom - and I can't help but picture them taking this everywhere. McMahon family sitting at the dinner table in CT, speaking into the microphone to ask Shane to pass the brussels sprouts.

Thanks for that, my coworkers are looking at me like I'm insane now because for some reason that visual is just too much and I lost it.

The booking of the company as a whole is doomed, but I'm glad EY won and Gunner and Storm had a classic. Shame neither guy will go as far as they could've in wrestling thanks to TNA being TNA. Storm just two and a half years ago felt like someone they could take to the moon as a mainstream crossover guy. Now, they've kind of got one on paper as their world champion. He's a great worker, solid talker, and will never quite be what he could've been due to being a comedy guy - although I honestly can't say I'd see him being as big a team in WWE as he's been in TNA, so kudos to him for getting everything he's gotten. He seems like a fantastic person and definitely deserves whatever success he's able to wrangle out of this push.

Apparently there was a TNA ppv last night and from reading the results, kinda glad no one mentioned it. I thought they were doing decent like 6 months ago or so but now, man they're probably right up there with 2000-2001 WCW. They only do 4 or 5 ppvs a year and this is the best they could put out?
