Elgin is a great wrestler and a skeevy dude who may not be quite as bad as we thought a few months ago.

Also imagine thinking masturbation is anything other than good and healthy. You know a match is good when someone calls it masturbatory.

I do hope Elgin ends up with 2 points, tied with Yoshi Hashi.

Taking a poo poo feels good and is healthy too but I don't want to watch someone do that in a wrestling ring.

Actually no, if some dude dropped his pants and took a poo poo in the middle of the ring it would be hilarious and more interesting than watching Michael Elgin transition from a top rope splash mountain to a buckle bomb to a burning hammer.

Jeremy Corbyn has been made the subject of an official complaint to the Labour party over his suggestion in 2013 that some British Zionists do not understand 'English irony'.

Are you offended?

Why not put in a complaint?

ATTENTION HOTLINE FANS!

There is hot news circulating about your favorite or most hated promotion or wrestler, but because of the sensitivity of these scoops I can't talk about them here on Something Awful.

To get the low down exclusive, call my hotline now!


There's a lot of retweets on offer if you state on Twitter that the man who is actually morally very bad is actually morally very bad to your followers who already know that the man is actually morally very bad.

Whatever you do don't ask why they are still supporting the promotion that continues to book a man who is actually morally very bad.

Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA


My hope is Tanahashi makes it to the finals.

My assumption is the final is Okada vs Naito.

My hope is Adam and Mike are right and Switchblade loses to Yoshi Hashi and loses his mind.

My assumption is the tournament MVP is YTR.

I have Yoshi-Hashi beating White. White neats Okada and is all cocky then Yoshi-Hashi gets a win over hin and he delves into madness.

It'll be fun.

Yes, we have feathers--but the muscles of men.

I think Tanahashi takes it for one last ride in the main event and he and Kenny main event the Tokyo Dome.

Re: Elgin

I try to watch his matches with suspension of disbelief because, I don’t know, I want to like wrestling and so many of them seem like trash people and I don’t feel like getting caught up in that cycle most of the time. That said, I do a bad job of separating the performance from the performer, and I dislike him and want to see him lose. He seems like trash.

Here’s a small anecdote: the promotion he used to run, Glory Pro, runs in the STL area where I live. Before this whole mess with him surfaced, I went to one show and it was pretty good; Marafuji had a cool match against some giant and there was a really great tag match. Anyway, I paid for tickets ahead of time and the guy emails me to PayPal him money, but to do it by selecting the “sending cash to friends” option because “it helps when tax season comes around.”

My wife and I joked about how Elgin really needed to get a better business manager. Once all the stories about him broke, I realized it was Elgin who had emailed me via his normal Aaron Frobel (or whatever) account. I didn’t think anyone would make up the name Michael Elgin.

He probably also will end up getting hosed for tax evasion is what I’m saying so he is pretty deeply invested in skeevitude.

Yoshi Hashi is so ugly it's honestly kinda impressive. Give the poor lad a mask or something.

Juice turning up to the press conference with a bow tie and a giant shiteating grin only confirms him as the biggest face going right now.

Glad I'm not the only idiot who got up earlier than I needed to because I didn't notice it said GMT instead of BST on the website (I'm pretty sure they have been good at having times up in BST before now so I'm just going to assume that they did and therefore it's not my fault I missed something so staggeringly obvious)

Running with Japanese commentary for now. It's on a hype level unmatched by the English commentary most of the time and the last couple of shows I've gone with English. I did enjoy Chase's commentary, though.
