Written by Sheridan The world has been quite surreal in recent times, reflecting something of an apocalyptic movie rather than the usual routine we are all used to. With a global pandemic putting an abrupt stop to life as we know it, people have been left in uncertain times, wondering when the peak of these troubling times will emerge, before washing into the past, letting us all return from the indefinite holidays, minus the sun hat and beachfront views, currently being undertaken. However, a glimpse of hope, a return to reality. In a corner of the sporting world things seemed to return to normal, if only for a second, as UFC Light Heavyweight champion and arguably the greatest mixed martial artist on the face of the planet, Jon Jones, once again succame to his only weakness, what some would call his Achilles heel, his unrivalled ability for getting himself in trouble resulting in violence, scandal and many, many arrests. The morning hours of New Mexico, more specifically Albuquerque, home to the Jackson Wink Mixed Martial Arts team, played witness to Jones' arrest. Charged with negligent use of a firearm and driving under the influence, this was the latest stump, mark, in a long list of legal infractions and regulatory issues dating back to almost eight years ago. In a time where people should be staying at home, amidst a virus sweeping the planet, this news was big enough to put a pause to all the noise of that, drown out the worries. People wondered how in a time where people should be grounded and taking no risks, one of the biggest names in the sport could f*ck up with splendour and ease. In turn, Jones was eviscerated for his actions, people who are stuck inside venting their frustrations, towards a man who has it all, has the talent, but seems ever so willing to piss it all away for the sake of alcohol and gun crime. Let's not get the narrative twisted, here. Jon Jones is a man in his prime, before we go further I'd like to stress that he is an adult, responsible for his own actions. From the management within the UFC to the drug testing agency they employ, all the way to police and judges in an array of collective states, he has found a way into trouble, and has been warned. Think about some of televisions greatest villains, warned that their evil plans will not work. Run it back to burning yourself with hot water as a child, after being warned not to go near it. Jon Jones has been warned more than those villains, more than your childish memories. But I think it is important to note that, Jon Jones doesn't exist in his own world. He does countless of good things in comparison to the crimes he commits. He is an elite athlete arguably on his own in terms of legacy, in terms of pure, raw skill. He is marketable to the black demographic and he makes the UFC a lot of money. He makes management and his training camp and his opposition a lot of money. He makes charities which he puts his name upon and donates some of his winnings to, a lot of money. I do not believe that Jon Jones will be punished for another misdemeanour in his collection, people seem to be ever so willing to turn a blind eye to that dark side of him, as the good is so profitable. ๐–ณ๐—๐–พ ๐—‹๐–บ๐—‰ ๐—Œ๐—๐–พ๐–พ๐— Jon Jones' first run-in with the law, one which would be the header and inaugural mark on a long and notorious list, would be when he was arrested in upstate New York, eight years ago for driving under the influence. He crashed his Bentley sports car into a lamppost and was lot off with a slap on the wrist, a first time misdemeanour for the then twenty-four year old. At this time is was so easy to give Jon Jones the benefit of the doubt, a young superstar recently finding fame and a bucket load of cash. On the other hand, celebrities tend to get off without a hitch in these sort of situations, where a common folk and normal person perhaps might of faced a bigger challenge, in terms of the police and the law behind them. Without much trouble, the news sinking into the background. He fought Swede Alexander Gustaffson at UFC 165 defending his Light Heavyweight Championship. A fight recently inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame, perhaps the greatest bout in that weight class of all time in the near twenty-five year history of the UFC. Jones had managed to put his problems behind him and came back to show why he is noted as a gifted athlete, one with absolute raw talent for the mixed martial arts game. Post-match Jones' took ahold of a red flag, waved it in the air and declared that he had spent the last two weeks or so partying. Nobody seemed to bat their eyes towards his direction, his comments. Managing to stay out of trouble for two and a bit years, the second strike came when he tested positive for cocaine metabolites in late 2014. This was in the lead up to his first fight with Daniel Cormier who is Jones' greatest rival to date. The scheduled bout went on because the commission of the state the bout was taking place in, ruled it an out-of-competition misdemeanour and slated that while he would be flagged down under old-testing rules this was not a violation anymore. The fight went on as proposed, Jon Jones won and his 'punishment' for snorting cocaine whilst being one of the faces of the promotion was rehab. Jon Jones was put into rehab and that was the end of it. He was in rehab for less than twenty-four hours. I believe from a personal perspective that, if Jon Jones had been in rehab for longer and if the management of UFC decided to be serious about treating their ill champion that the list of scandals and problems Jones' was yet to have, would be non-existent. He would of had time to recover and get his act together. Instead, his issues were swept beneath the mat and he was put into another title fight three months later. Scheduled to face Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson in May of 2015 the biggest and most infamous scandal to cross Jon Jones came in the form of a hit and run incident which ended with a pregnant woman breaking her arm. I am going to stress that at this point Jon Jones was a nationally recognised and well-known competitor in the world of mixed martial arts, with drug and alcohol issues, at fault for a car crash and driving off before police could arrive on the scene. At this point, either the UFC or the police should have stepped in. Told Jon Jones that he needed to spend a long time in rehab, or send him, a repeat offender at this point, to prison. Instead he got community service, let off with probation. At UFC 232, jumping forward some time now, his issues would revolve around drug related incidents and inconsistencies with testing. The Nevada Athletics Commission refused to allow Jon Jones to fight in late 2018, due to this. Slating that they couldn't permit Jones to fight as his results came back with high inconsistencies and a likelihood that he had taken performance enhancing drugs. The UFC employs over five hundred fighters at the time of writing this and I am stressing that out of those numbers, four hundred and ninety nine would have their championships stripped for something like this, their fight would be cancelled and they would be served with a suspension, either from the UFC or from USADA. Dana White, president of the UFC instead moved the entire show to a different state, to California. A state where Jon Jones could fight as the commission there could not test Jones in time before the fight. This is something that screwed over countless fans, out of hotel room bookings or airline tickets. It also screwed over Jon Jones' training camp and his oppositions, as well as the UFC staff and security who would be getting a pay cheque from the event. All for Jon Jones, a man with clear signs of addiction. The UFC moved an entire event and screwed thousands of people, sending a message to their drug-riddled and alcoholic champion that is was okay to succumb to these things. Along with putting him in rehab for less than a day and giving him probation, when other people would be jailed for such. It is no wonder that to this day Jon Jones struggles with addiction, and struggles to be the face of the UFC without finding himself under scrutiny, from fans at home to fighters in his weight class. ๐–ณ๐—๐–พ ๐—Œ๐—Ž๐—†๐—†๐–บ๐—‹๐—’ If you are Jon Jones in the modern world, one fuelled by Corona virus and the prospect of self isolating then it is no wonder that he'd find himself getting into trouble. Over the past decade he has been told by those who employ him and those who work with him most days of the year that it is alright to do so, alright to drink however much and get behind the wheel. He no longer has that structure or that regularity within his life. He doesn't have to train for a fight as most have been cancelled and gymnasiums across the globe are being shut down to decrease the risk of infection and passing along the virus. Even if Jon Jones tried to do the correct thing it is no wonder that trouble came knocking to his door, and he answered. I would suggest to those who have read this far, who have a genuine interest in Jon Jones, to search up the police body cam footage released alongside his arrest details. It is disturbing. But, this is on Jon Jones, who again, is an adult. This is a man with a gift and he chooses to self sabotage his legacy for addiction. However, Jon Jones does not carry this burden alone and he could have been stopped countless times in his career, from a young and impressionable athlete growing to a dominant champion. It is on management for not strapping down and getting a handle on him, it is on the media for playing up his innocence and sucking up to Jon Jones portraying him as something he is not. From the police force of New Mexico, to Dana White and to the others in charge of the UFC, it is on them, for sending a message to a man in dire need of help that is okay to screw up, that the rules do not apply to people who make as much money for the organisation as he does. There is a clear line between the rich and the rest, between Jones and the others and this applies to the UFC and to day to day life in New Mexico. It is easy to poke fun at Jon Jones, but he was around my age when he knocked Mauricio Rua out to capture the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship. Since then he has been sent a message from the world that addiction is alright. I am not going to poke fun at him or take any pleasure from watching another misdemeanour fall into the lap of a stupidly talented martial artists career spiralling into troubling times. Jon Jones needs help, and it is on himself but on those leeching off him to give him that before something bad happens, be it Jones getting behind the wheel drunk, or overdosing from funnelling his system with alcohol and cocaine.
  2. I actually like this idea, but I'm going to put my own interpretation on it. Instead of having a Kayfabe channel in the chat I think we could have a "locker-room" section on the Forums, for things like pre-show comments and other little things. Posts that are too short or unrelated to be considered promos, but things that help with character development or can be posted to tease feuds and what-not. People could run with new ideas which wouldn't count toward any active votings they're in, or about to be in, and it could be fun to see characters interact with 2-3 lines of engagement, rather than having to write out a promo every single time you want two characters to interact.

Tributes from the twelve districts of Australia were selected at random to compete to the death for the sake of entertainment. The twenty-four participants are placed on faint podiums, slightly raised off ground level, all equally spaced out and all at a similar distance to the weapons and treasures of the Cornucopia, the middle of the large, rural map selected to host the games. As commentator reminds the viewing audience and those within the games of the rules and preparations taken for these games, cameras zoom into the traumatised faces of the young fighters. Some look confident while others look unsure of their game plan heading into the event. A brief reminder of the reasoning for these games is read out, being heard on the televised version, as well as to the participants through a large speaker, hovering above the Cornucopia which is rich with supplies and weapons. A message of luck is read out, before speaker fades out, silence being replaced with the loud blaring of a holographic clock counting down from ten appearing before the tributes. It is settling in that this is real, the regime has placed these tributes into open warfare, to fight to the death for the entertainment of those blessed and fortunate to have escaped the districts and formed the metropolitan, for the horror of those, the poor, watching the children of their districts about to battle it out. Clock hits five and then four and then three, dread setting in, before one final blare is heard, horn sounding out, clock disappearing and tributes running. Arius makes a u-turn, not approaching the Cornucopia and running for the large shadow of trees in the distance. Necce manages to grab a satchel of supplies before turning and doing the same while Flynn runs past him, proceeding in grabbing a Bowie knife off of the floor close to the supplies that Necce grabbed. He turns, seeing that nobody is close to him and decides against heading to the middle of the Cornucopia, sprinting off in a different direction to that of Arius and Necce. Alex of District Four and Mikey of District Ten are the first to reach the middle of the Cornucopia. They begin rooting through the supplies whilst pushing and kicking at one another. Alex withdraws an arrow, without bow, stabbing Mikey in the shoulder before Mikey kicks him off. Mikey then pushes Alex to the floor before turning, taking two hands and grabbing a trident. Alex meanwhile recovers and finds a bow but as he turns the bow is snapped in half by the spikes of Mikey's trident. Reluctance settles in, Alex backs off before turning and running away. As other tributes run in all directions, be it to the Cornucopia or to the trees and forests to disappear and disperse, Bob of District One and Slim, of District Eleven, have brawled from the middle of the map to lakeside. Slim, having height and weight advantage over Bob, is on top, laying in some ground and pound which is defended well from Bob before he kicks Slim off of him and the two trade blows on the ground. Slim manages to roll atop of Bob once more, hands shooting to his throat, in an attempt to choke him. Bob outreaches his hands but is unable to fight Slim off, Slim is choking the life out of Bob here, until we hear a loud crack and Slim's body slumps onto the side. Toxik hit Slim in the head with a rock! Toxik hit Slim on the skull and blood is dripping out of Slim's cranium! Toxik and Bob exchange a weary glance, as Slim holds a hand to his head, beginning to get up once more. Bob and Toxik nod at one another before tripping Slim up, pushing him into the lake and watching together as Slim struggles to stay afloat, before drowning to the bottom of the lake. Slim is the first tribute to die within the BrendenPlayz Hunger Games, losing his life to a fellow District Eleven member and training partner in Toxik, as well as Bob. Meanwhile in the Cornucopia, supplies are being looted and weapons are being collected. Smith, of District Five, grabs a backpack and tries to leave only for Mikey to stab at it with his new found friend, the trident. Smith and Mikey exchange glares, before Smith grabs a tin of tuna from a close shelf and launches it at Mikey! That tin of tuna hit Mikey upside the head and his forehead is beginning to swell. Mikey takes a deep breath and stabs at Smith with his trident, before chasing after him. Smith manages to grab at a close by box and throws it towards the feet of Mikey, tripping him up! Mikey, deciding that the trident's weight isn't worth it, leaves the weapon at the Cornucopia, chasing after Smith. Bart sneaks into the Cornucopia and takes a look at the trident, before setting eyes out to Mikey chasing Smith down, waving hands frantically in the air. A cool shrug of the shoulders emits and Bart rushes through the Cornucopia, picking up food supplies and darting out of the other side. His running finds him almost crash into a battle, between Sameer and Gunner, who are vying over an ancient looking katana, encased in a sheath. Gunner looks to have the edge until Sameer kicks his legs out from beneath him, struggling over towards the sheath, only to pull at it and find that nothing was within it all along! Gunner chuckles at the realisation, and the two go back to brawling. Gunner manages to tackle Sameer to the floor, the pair reaching out for the disposed of trident left by Mikey. Sameer manages to grasp it first, twisting his form and pushing the spikes of the trident into Gunner's neck, throwing Gunner off to the side of him before taking the trident, leaving Gunner to bleed out. Raven of District Two reaches the first outpost, boarded up alongside the outskirts of the Cornucopia. Inside he finds him binoculars and some chocolate milkshake. Opening up the beverage he takes a sip, picking binoculars up and witnessing Sameer stab Gunner in the throat with a trident, albeit from a long distance. Raven hears footsteps behind him and turns just in time to see Brad enter the outpost. Excluding Raven's half-empty chocolate milkshake, either men are unarmed and Raven takes a step forward before Brad invites him to settle down and outstretches a hand, gesturing for them to team. Brad: Hey hey hey, woah. Relax, man. I come in peace, I'm not looking to fight, I have nothing, and from the looks of it you don't either. Raven: Dude you're getting too close. Ease off. I'm not looking to fight either. Brad gestures towards the chocolate milk and binoculars in Raven's hand. Raven shrugs, handing over one of the bottles as well as the binoculars, taking a back seat in the outpost before gesturing that he'll watch the back door. Brad brings the binoculars to his eyeline before looking toward the Cornucopia. Bashka and Arrow, of District Three and District Six respectively are fighting over a pistol. Due to Bashka being much older and taller, he easily manages to out muscle Arrow before reaching for the gun, only for Kenji to run in and tackle Bashka to the ground. Kenji has a Bowie knife in hand, and begins thrusting the knife towards Bashka's throat. Bashka deflects and grips Kenji's wrist. The two wrestle and trade punches before Bashka gets atop of Kenji, reigning down fists onto Kenji's throat. Arrow, having recovered at this point, handles the gun. He aims the pistol and fires off two shots, hitting Bashka in the lower and upper back. Bashka, weakened, wriggles and rolls around in immense pain, blood streaming out from his back, spine and muscles exposed. Kenji, blood soaking his lower half at this point, begins to crawl away from Arrow, who is welling up with tears. Kenji turns and begs for mercy, Arrow mouths something to the other, before firing off a single shot which hits Kenji between the eyes, Bashka and Kenji dead at the hands of a now weeping Arrow. As Brad settles down the binoculars, Raven returns and asks him what's going on. Brad says nothing and takes a sip of his chocolate milk. The action returns to the Cornucopia where we see Eric wavering through the leftover supplies. He manages to find some water bottles and pasta mix, as well as other essentials and survival kit necessaries which he begins storing into a large rucksack. FDS of District Seven bursts through the other side, jumping over the table and beginning to brawl with Eric on the floor. Eric and FDS trade punches with one another while scrapping, rolling around on the flooring of the Cornucopia. FDS pries open a water battle, dumping water over Eric temporarily blinding him. FDS and Eric separate and FDS turns to grasp at a wooden spear, tucked beneath one of the isles of the Cornucopia. He charges at Eric, who is off-screen, but stops in his tracks. Eric has removed his lower garments and is flashing himself at FDS! FDS and Eric exchange inaudible words, Eric grasping his genitalia and gesturing for FDS to suck his dick. FDS and Eric are locked in a very weird stalemate before FDS waves off Eric's challenge, running off with wooden spear in hand. The Cornucopia has cleared out, bodies of Bashka, Kenji and Gunner in close proximity, with Slim's sunken carcass a hundred or so metres out. Julius emerges from the roof of the Cornucopia having climbed up there in the early proceedings. He jumps off of the roof, onto the floor, before turning his attention to the bodies scattered at his feet. Realising that his District training partner Kenji has passed, he frowns. Julius kicks Bashka's body to the side, lifting the fallen Kenji over his shoulder. Whilst the Cornucopia is bare at this point Julius manages to find some food storage as well as a shovel. After finishing a sandwich he heads out close to the lake where Bob, Toxik and Slim fought. With Kenji at his side he begins to dig a grave for his fallen comrade. Hunger Games cameras settle on the image of Julius digging a shallow grave, throwing dirt over his shoulder as the feed begins to pan out and the inaugural episode of the BrendenPlayz Hunger Games comes to a reflective, dark ending.

  5. I don't watch AEW highlights often, but this popped up on my feed and I ended up watching the whole show. I liked this promo a lot. It made me go back and watch a few segments from the MJF and Cody feud. Jake Roberts was awesome here and, as someone who has watched a lot of his promos from the mid 80's it's awesome to see that he hasn't lost much ability and he has that factor which captivates an audience. I don't know what it is, I just admire that he has struggled with addiction and personal problems for so long but hasn't lost his touch whatsoever on the microphone. I think this genuinely might be the beginning of me watching the AEW product a lot more, this was the 'turning' point if it were. It's wild how Cody has lost quite a lot but I'm invested in his struggles and I really REALLY want Jake Roberts to become an on air manager for some of the talent in AEW. As for his client? Brodie Lee. BRODIE LEE. PLEASE.

Over the past month The Capitol rulers, Brenden and KeeleyPlayz have been visiting each District individually, drawing names from a lottery system to reveal which children of each District will be competing in the inaugural BrendenPlayz Hunger Games. These competitors, picked at random, will have allotted time to work on their combat knowledge and skills, as well as overall strategy and tactics leading into the event. The inaugural Hunger Games will take place in a large, rural and forest area of dystopian Australia. The following names were drawn at random, to compete in the inaugural Hunger Games. District One Bailey - 18 years old. Bob - 13 years old. District Two Raven - 14 years old. Sameer - 17 years old. District Three Bashka - 18 years old. Gunner - 14 years old. District Four Alex - 14 years old. Isaiah - 16 years old. District Five Flynn - 18 years old. Smith - 17 years old. District Six Arrow - 12 years old. Hans - 14 years old. District Seven CJ - 13 years old. FDS - 16 years old. District Eight Julius - 17 years old. Kenji - 14 years old. District Nine Brad - 15 years old. Necce - 18 years old. District Ten Arius - 14 years old. Mikey - 13 years old. District Eleven Slim - 18 years old. Toxik - 14 years old. District Twelve Bart - 17 years old. Eric - 15 years old. The BrendenPlayz Hunger Games are set to last five days, with a feast of restocking being hosted at the cornucopia to encourage aggressiveness. The Playz Regime have set out limited rules for the competitors of the games. They make it clear that twenty-three of the twenty-four competitors will leave the arena dead and that only one individual can win. While Districts are supposed to team up it is not within the laws that they cannot combat and kill one another. They also make clear that going on the front foot is encouraged, and killings will be rewarded with weapons and supplies from the unknown sponsors of the game. While only one competitor can win, whoever ends the games in second place, and whoever has the most kills, will be set for life and be given riches for their district from The Capitol. May the odds be ever in your favour.

  8. The Hunger Games is a 2020 dystopian forums diary written by Junior Moderator Sheridan, with assistance from CJ Sellers and Eric Shun. The above graphic was made by Hans. It is written from the perspective of Sheridan, who lives in the future, post-apocalyptic nation of Australia in Oceania. The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, exercises political control over the rest of the nation, with Brenden Playz and Keeley Playz at the helm. The Hunger Games is an annual event in which two boys aged 12โ€“18 from each of the twelve districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle royale to the death, devised by the Playz regime to get back at rebellions and anarchy within the districts aimed at the Capitol and their way of life. [OOC Note: Hello! This is an idea I got from CJ Sellers posting a Hunger Games simulation game within the Discord, yesterday. It got me thinking what if someone presented that simulation, in a diary format similar to BobdaBomb's BrendenPlayz Pizza Place? There seemed to be a genuine interest for something like this in the Discord. I will be using the Hunger Games simulator on BrantSteele.net to simulate however will be adding detailing and descriptions to the minimalistic simulations to make them more diary-friendly. Some of the posts on this diary will be graphic and have strong language so if that isn't your scene I would not read past this post. Happy Hunger Games!]

  11. Bart. - Bart would most likely fit into a co-owner or CEO role of the promotion. From my experiences with Bart, as friend and as fellow mod, he is extremely rational and fair. Bart is a likeable and pleasant person and has some experience with managing other people and has a good grip on finances and economy, if I understand his studies correctly. Overall I believe Bart would suit an ownership position, or something of similar stature. Arius. - Arius is someone who I get along with well. He would probably fit into a scouting or creative role within my promotion. Arius pitches interesting and usually great concepts in the booking room on a regular occurrence, I also have the knowledge of seeing Arius from a creative standpoint from running a diary with him for half a year. Similarly to Bart he is a nice and decent person and I don't think I'd have problems with him being a head booker or an executive director in my promotion. Smith. - I had a difficult time picking between Smith and Slim for this one. I think they're two of the most passionate people on the forums when it comes to putting stories together but in the end I went with Smith. I think Smith is a jack-of-all-trades figure on the forums. He does graphics, he writes diaries, he puts together YouTube videos and he has a great understanding of kayfabe as a whole. I think Smith would fit as a good road agent in my promotion, a true visionary. Hans. - Hans would be the main graphics person of the promotion. I'd put him in charge of the social media accounts or make him the head of the media department. I think in terms of advertisements and overall aesthetic Hans would do a great job of that department. His graphics are dope and he is another person I consider a friend here. I think he'd be capable of pitching in on the creative side of things also. Nathan Sawyer. - Nathan, to my knowledge, is the only person on the forums who has ACTUAL wrestling experience, someone who has wrestled but has also experienced the backstage atmosphere of promotions and how things work. So, I'd bring him on in an adviser role. Maybe the head of talent relations or something. Or as a member of the overall board to get his perspective on things. Maybe he could wrestle in my promotion too.

Nothing much of note happened in terms of major signings or championship changes. Genichiro Tenryu and Jumbo Tsuruta continue to dominate AJPW while Tatsumi Fujinami does so in NJPW. Ric Flair and Kerry Von Erich are the biggest stars outside of the WWF. While Mexico is still a snooze-fest. The only unexpected news is some young lion called Keiji Mutoh is the NWA Heavyweight Championship holder. I wonder how his career will shape out. The Mega Powers Form and Implode: The WWF Heavyweight Championship and those vying for it has unsurprisingly taken centre stage within the WWF. The formation and rise of The Heenan Family culminated in Andrรฉ The Giant capturing the biggest belt in the business, in a steel cage match against Hulk Hogan. To combat this stable and those associated with it, namely one Ted DiBiase, the two most popular wrestlers in the promotion formed an alliance, dominating the promotion for the latter half of 1987. Randy Savage captured the belt in the closing month of the year and that is where tensions began to settle in. Hulk Hogan had gotten especially close to Miss Elizabeth, wife of Randy Savage during the run of 'The Mega Powers.' A relationship which only grew stronger when Hulk Hogan won the inaugural Royal Rumble match in January of 1988. This lead to an implosion between Hogan and Savage. A seismic shift at the summit of the WWF mountain, leading to Miss Elizabeth donning the referee shirt, her incapable of choosing between her husband and new found friend, in a match pitting one Hulk Hogan against the WWF Heavyweight champion, Randy Savage. Which Stable Rules the Roost: The downfall of The Heenan Family collided with the rise of The Institute in the latter half of 1987. It seems that WWF only has room for one group controlling the narrative and the upper half of the card. The WWF Tag Team Championships fell into the hands of Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper in the final months of the year while Bob Orton had been on a winning streak of his own, while The Heenan Family was mourning the loss of the WWF Heavyweight Championship, Big John Studd and associate Ted DiBiase in their own personal slumps. Piper, still incensed at his loss to Andrรฉ The Giant at WrestleMania II, made the challenge. He claimed that The Institute were the superior stable of the WWF and that he, alongside Orton and Orndorff, could put Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and his "Brain-dead monkeys" out of commission. Will the fall of The Heenan Family continue when WrestleMania IV comes around? Or will The Institute be sent packing, tails between their legs. Best in the World: With the WWF Tag Team Championships becoming property of The Institute, The Hart Foundation and The British Bulldogs continued their lengthy issues with one another pointing fingers at who was to blame. The inaugural Royal Rumble event saw an emphatic bout between the two teams, and Orndorff and Piper, with The Institute leaving with the gold and the other two teams brawling, security being brutalised in the process. It was later revealed that Davey Boy Smith of The British Bulldogs was medically suspended due to injuries suffered at the hands of The Hart Foundation. Bret Hart soaked this in, calling himself and Jim Neidhart the best tag team on the planet, himself the toughest and best wrestler in the world. Nobody in the WWF seemed to take his claims seriously, but, none other than Antonio Inoki would appear to challenge his claims, challenging the Canadian wrestler to a match on the biggest state on the world, under the most intense spotlight, at the Georgia Dome for WrestleMania IV. ๐‘พ๐‘พ๐‘ญ ๐‘ช๐’‰๐’‚๐’Ž๐’‘๐’Š๐’๐’๐’”๐’‰๐’Š๐’‘ ๐‘ฏ๐’Š๐’”๐’•๐’๐’“๐’š WWF Heavyweight Championship Roddy Piper | Three Defences | March 1985 - September 1985 Hulk Hogan | Thirteen Defences | September 1985 - June 1987 Andrรฉ The Giant | Three Defences | June 1987 - December 1987 Randy Savage | One Defence | December 1987 - Present WWF Intercontinental Championship Ricky Steamboat | Four Defences | March 1985 - October 1985 Big John Studd Two Defences | October 1985 - March 1986 Jimmy Snuka | Two Defences | March 1986 - July 1986 Randy Savage | Eight Defences | July 1986 - July 1987 Jake Roberts | Four Defences | July 1987 - Present WWF Royal Rumble Hulk Hogan | 1988 WWF Tag Team Championships Bruno Sammartino and David Sammartino | Two Defences | March 1985 - August 1985 Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Sheik | Four Defences | August 1985 - March 1986 Davey Boy Smith and Dynamite Kid | Four Defences | March 1986 - September 1986 Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart | Six Defences | September 1986 - July 1987 Davey Boy Smith (2) and Dynamite Kid (2) | Two Defences | July 1987 - October 1987 Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper | Two Defences | October 1987 - Present WWF Women's Championship Wendi Richter | Eleven Defences | March 1985 - June 1987 Sensational Sherri | Four Defences | June 1987 - Present ๐‘พ๐‘พ๐‘ญ ๐‘ช๐’“๐’†๐’‚๐’•๐’Š๐’—๐’† ๐‘ด๐’†๐’†๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ WWF Franchise Players 1.

  13. I share the same sentiments as a lot of people on this thread, great match-up, the hype around it will be electric but the in-ring portion will not deliver. As others have pointed out this feels like it is coming a few years too late. Undertaker has been on a slippery slope for a long while now and, while he looked good in his tag team bout last year the mechanics of that match are different to that of a singles match-up. AJ Styles for me has also declined a little over the past year or two. Odd said something which I agree with. I don't think 'Taker retires here, so I'd be fine with a ten or so minute match-up with interference from the O.C. which leads to a good but not great match which leaves 'Taker with a little more fuel in the tank for 2/3 more matches before the next WrestleMania.
  14. I couldn't care less for Brodie going to AEW, to be frank. I know he has friends both on the roster and in management over there but personally I just do not think there's enough differences between WWE and AEW for it to be interesting to me. Brodie Lee in NJPW would be a dream scenario. He has a very physical and hard-hitting style which would suit NJPW, furthermore NJPW work less dates than WWE so he'd be able to prolong his career over in Japan. I'd love to see him against the likes of Ishii, Okada, Goto, names which have been listed before. I genuinely believe he could be in a similar vein to Bruiser Brody over there in terms of popularity. Stylistically it just fits and I'd be upset if Brodie didn't have a run with a NJPW singles belt or compete at a WrestleKingdom before his career comes to a close.
  15. You are not the only one. Great episode, Bob. The amount of time you must put into finding GIFs and formatting this is insane. I still maintain this is one of the best diaries on the Forums.
