It's not obscure, but 'Taker's Ministry of Darkness theme was by far his best theme.

What is your fave Undertaker look. By far my favorite is the 96-97 look, before starting the Ministry. Probably with the teardrop painted on his face.

I always enjoyed the story of Undertaker standing at the entryway double dog daring Shawn to try anything funny as far as the finish went

What was 'Taker's quote? Something like "I let him know if he didn't go out there and drop it, he was going to have a long night."

They have to have their passing of the torch thing from Cena to Reigns.
You'd think they'd just do it face/face. But there is currently no hope of Reigns getting cheered in that situation.
So turn Cena heel so Reigns will get cheered as the face.
This might actually turn out to be worse for them.
(Gods I hope so. The only pleasure I can derive from that company anymore is watching them fall on their faces from the sidelines)


How lovely are we talking here?
Somehow this makes perfect sense to me. Take care of a fallen wrestler's widow. Pay her peanuts. Sincerely pat yourself of the back for a good deed done.
I'm not completely convinced that McMahon and Trump weren't actually separated at birth by a voodoo ritual to split their soul into a good and evil body except their body had no good in it to begin with so we just wound up with this.

Face Reigns would get booed out of the building against a newly turned Cena, I bet.

So uh I'm watching the July 5, 93 Raw and the curtain-jerker was X-Pac (as 123 Kid) vs Blake Beverly

And it was actually loving great, like X-Pac genuinely impressed the living hell out of me with his moveset and sold Beverly's offense incredibly well. He honestly pretty much stole the show on this card and that's loving shocking for who I'm talking about. He was over as hell, too, with the crowd basically losing their poo poo for him, which kind of astounded me.

What happened to him? Did he just peak really early?

Huh? Waltman has always been really, really good, people just hate on him. I've always enjoyed his work. He's also pretty good on the Stone Cold podcast.

This is exactly it.

At the height of the Carolinas one of the newspapers in the area did a poll on whether or not fans thought wrestling was real. 97% responded it was fake. People were leery of works in the 1850s and 60s and knew drat well it was fake in the 20s and 30s.

The best part was Ole Anderson predicted like 99 percent would say it was real.

Do you buy Jake's story though? I mean, Grizzly is enough of an rear end in a top hat to keep his family in the dark from everything I've heard about the guy, but it almost seems too much.

The one about Grizzly not smartening up his family, I mean. Not the ref story, that's nonsense.

Nah, there's a lot of stories about wrestlers not smartening up their families. Terry said Dory, Sr. didn't smarten him and Dory Jr until real late.

This is fun because everyone is clearly getting a kick out of it, including Miz who has to kind of take a moment to hide his smile and turn it into his usual good heeling. But the second those chants are audible Stephanie has the look of pure disgust and contempt on her face for the voice and will of the people. Truly a McMahon.

So, I'm watching Ivory's induction into the Hall of Fame. Two quick questions for y'all.

1) Obviously she's had the best career of anyone from the promotion, but did anyone else from GLOW have a career of note or worth talking about?

2) What would y'all consider Ivory's best/standout matches to be?

Didn't she have a really good match with Molly Holly on some random Raw? In like 2000, I believe.

I wish Roman would just go away at this point.

Since that's not likely, he needs a heel turn. (also not likely)

My guess is the WWE's locker room leaders are a mixture of whoever is actually respected by the people in back and people who Vince likes and wont punish when they make arbitrary decisions and bully people.

Probably also people who stand up for themselves. (to a certain extent)

Venomous posted:

I thought we went over this, the vest is necessary to hide his shameful back.

Anyway, Roman is a good top (de facto) heel and Strowman is a good top (de facto) babyface and both of them draw money and both of them are good now. Roman in particular has been involved in multiple MOTY candidates over the past five and a half years, and hes easily the best solo wrestler out of the Shield. Hes a genuinely good wrestler and he doesnt deserve half the poo poo that gets said about him, and frankly he has every right to deliver heel promos and act like a top heel when the crowds are that poo poo to him. He doesnt need to turn heel if he already is one.

Strowman took a while to find his edge, but I do agree that his matches against Roman made him look like a star. Since then hes been good at his role as Big Guy Whos Not Finished With You, and hes a face with the crowd by the sheer virtue of not being Roman Reigns. I dont see him being Universal Champion for a while now, definitely not before Reigns and (hopefully) Ambrose, but if he can keep doing what hes doing and doing it well, hell be absolutely fine.

He's the worst in-ring worker out of the Shield, and it's not even loving close.

Legit question, what do you get out of Roman? Like, I don't hate the dude but I don't get the appeal. Like, he was cool in the shield and has been a big meh to me for years. What is it that a Roman fan loves about him?

All four moves he can do? His poor selling and facials?

I know a lot of people don't like Dean's weird flailing offense and that's fair but lmao my dude Roman Reigns still only has two to four moves and isn't even good at doing them.
