Anytime I need to see your face I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola

I think over the course of several years, and numerous video games, several moves done by the Brood would end up being called the Impaler.

Let your word be "Yes, Yes" or "No, No"; anything more than this comes from the evil one.

Though ironically, Gangrel's lifting DDT was the best move ever done by anyone in The Brood.

I liked Edge, but gently caress, his spear was terrible.

I really like the animation for the flatliner he had in the AKI games, which I think came from Revenge and specifically from Kanyon, but Edge's version never looked good in real life.

Early in Edge's WWF career, half his move set was ripped off from Kanyon. He used the Flatliner, used the Electric Chair Drop, and a few others.

Bad day, bad day, BAD DAY!

Did the WWF use piped in crowd noise for taped shows during the Attitude Era? I was watching the May 25 2000 Smackdown, and there seemed to be an awful lot of noise during an Al Snow vs Bull Buchanan match that I couldn't imagine anyone giving a gently caress about. I mostly focused on the crowd during the match, and even though there were audible pops for a lot of spots, I couldn't see a single fan reacting in the background. People usually claim that there wasn't any crowd sweetening during the Attitude Era, but that wasn't my impression here.

Band-aids don't fix arrow wounds


Without knowing the dates, smackdown was always most notorious for having the "Smackdown Pop" which was basically a vacuum noise because it was on a tape delay and Vince & Production could edit things to make it look and sound exactly how they wanted it to.

during the 2000s everyone was just that stupidly over. they most likely did doctor in more cheering though.

That man has the largest penis I have ever seen. I actually don't even know if he has mumps, forgot to look. I was distracted - by the largest penis I have ever seen


It always throws me off when I watch that era because the crowd is so crazy into it. I just forget what that's like.

Around what time did TV broadcast/PPV overtake gate as the WWF and WCW's primary source of revenue? The earliest 10-K available on WWE's website says that TV/PPV had already overtaken live revenues by 2000, so it must have happened sometimes in the 80s or 90s but I can't track the answer down.

Do you think that the type of multiweek "deep" character study interviews like they did back in the day with Foley and Dustin would work today? Would todays crowd have the patience for it? Would it help a character get over?

I don't think the writing is good enough to not have it come off super hokey if they tried

I really wanted them to do that with Woken Matt Hardy. Hardy was once on Jericho's podcast and spent an hour completely in character and it was amazing. I thought him having a multi episode interview with Cole would have done wonders for the character.
