  2. This seems to happen when he is injured or not actively competing. I have wondered what will happen once Jeff decides to retire if he ever does completely from the business. Seems like he can't get over that need for an adrenaline rush which might go hand in hand with this issue. I still remember when he mentioned on a radio show that he wanted to top Shane's spot on the cage against The Undertaker. It might seem he doesn't know what to do if he isn't wrestling. Hopefully this turns out to be an instance of him walking home from a night with friends and being stopped being too loud but even then it's a worry. Definitely not something you want in the headlines.
  3. Excalibur: Dark Order is from Parts Unknown Marvez: Apparently Dark Order is from Canada Excalibur: Apparently Parts Unknown is from Canada. That got a laugh from me but Alex Marvez again needs to go. He was a tiny bit better but that was only from detrimental to bland. Apparently he is friends with Cody but he isn't suited for the table. He's just super low energy, there's no one to compare him to in wrestling. I think he would be perfectly fitted backstage if they just occasionally threw to him for a segment where he could give storyline updates, interview or whatever, but he's contributing nothing in the booth compared to Goldenboy. I'm really hyped and excited to see what AEW does on TV soon, and I think it'll be a great product given what I've seen from events so far but man, they have some links to work out. The ending moment during their speech where they were cut off felt so unprofessional. Surely there was someone in the back that could tell a camera man and let them know. Something. It felt like an indy company move. It kind of makes you appreciate just how well oiled WWE is even if you find yourself not enjoying the product it mostly runs smooth and it's a standard AEW are going to at least try and match. Allie had a better showing tonight but Brandi Rhodes has got to get out of the ring. She's hurting the women's division. The real news is Kong vs Kong which is what i'm waiting to see. You could argue it would've been better 10 years ago and you're right but i'm looking for a short simple brawl between them. All over the arena even. A lot of fun in the six-man tag team match. The character work when you combine the personalities of Guevara, MJF and Shawn Spears was excellent and entertaining. Loved the "you failed noob" clap Guevara and Spears did to MJF after the first offence failure, and all their blind tags that caused tension in the team. All 3 of those men can play great heels and their dysfunctional dynamic worked. Spears' expressions also were great especially his dead stares and egotistical attitude playing off MJF. I also liked Spears' shirt reveal and new ring name of "The CHAIRman". I just hope that the company starts actually capitalising on his heel actions instead of making it awkward by pretending it had no consequences on BTE or elsewhere. AEW's tag team division is out of this world. This tag team title tournament is going to be a ton of fun if these first round bye matches have been any indication. Right now i'd be happy to see Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy becoming the first AEW Tag Team champions but at the same time i know i'd enjoy the chase a lot if they came up short. The Dark Order though...didn't feel like they clicked? I mean Stu Grayson looked great but whenever Evil Uno was involved the match came to a halt. I like the idea of their gimmick but as commentary themselves said they might have some rust. Speaking of Luchasaurus. Am i crazy to say he was one of the most over people that night? Maybe more than Adam Page. I wonder if he has potential of being a singles star for them down the line. I dont know if his gimmick will really even hold him back? I mean...it's obviously tongue-in-cheek and all his talent and personality shines past the Dinosaur look. I saw someone say their prediction was he would become AEW's Kane which is high praise and maybe too early. He could definitely fill the role though. Didn't really care that much about Page vs Sabian. It was fine but following the tag team match it didn't stand up. Weird moment with Sabian attempting to kiss that fan? Interesting offence. Chris Jericho emerged afterward to bloody up Page which made the match worth it. AEW have put themselves in a tough spot. Either an unready Hangman Page is their first champion, or Chris Jericho is creeping past his prime. I kinda think they have to go with Jericho just based on the reactions he is getting. Just going off his promo after the Omega vs Cima match says it all. Minor note but i enjoy him talking about the participants in the battle royal. Just mentioning the names makes them feel like "possible contenders" if that makes sense. Love seeing The Lucha Brothers whenever i can and their match with SoCal Uncensored was a lot of fun. Pentagon Jr. and Fenix challenged The Young Bucks to a Ladder match for the AAA World Tag Team Championship at All Out after the match and going by their last matches has the makings of an instant classic to seeingly blow off their feud for now leading into the tag team tournament. Brutal spot during the Omega/Cima match. Nothing to say here. Just enjoyed the match. I think The Brotherhood hands DOWN should've won their match against the Young Bucks. Coming off their great singles match, the emotion of coming together, this was their moment and i guess the only reason i see it didn't go that way is because the Bucks are facing for the AAA Tag Team Championships. Also i know it's a small thing but having both teams standing in the ring together talking to the crowd after building up the match was a "You mocked us ect" feud felt odd. Anyway the match itself i think will be better on rewatch but my initial reaction was that i enjoy it. Over 30 minutes getting to see the Rhodes brothers work together against a great tag team. AEW were really banking on themselves deciding to nearly go 4 hours. Can't exactly give WWE shit for it if AEW are going to follow. Regardless most of the matches were fun and even if not much of story progression happened i was glad to have watched.
  4. Kane, Eugene, & Doink the Clown vs. Umaga, Viscera, & Kevin Thorn [Saturday Night’s Main Event, June 2007]
  5. A breather this week since it was nothing but highlights and interviews from Slammiversary which is great if you're interested in that sort of content. Since they won't be taping new episodes until this coming week. That being said after the highlight that was Slammiversary i'm okay with that, especially with a week with both Fight for the Fallen & Extreme Rules it was a breather. I did watch the triple threat between Jordynne Grace, Kiera Hogan & Madison Rayne though which was a fun match but nothing you need to see if you had to choose. I'm really enjoying all the interactions between Jordynne & Steiner on Twitter and in the wrestling world lately. Actually she posted on Twitter a while ago showing her promos from participating in an E-Fed so you never know who you might be promoing against i suppose?
  6. Tamina Snuka Suffers Possible Concussion At WWE Live Event
  7. Officially announced the release date for Space Jam 2 featuring LeBron James. The movie is looking to release on July 16, 2021—25 years after the release of the original 1996 film that starred Michael Jordan. With James starring and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler producing, people who grew up with the movie are sitting wondering how it might turn out, taking 90s nostalgia and bringing it today. So far confirmed are Klay Thompson, Nneka Ogwumike, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard and Chiney Ogwumike but lets say, who do you want to mix it up with the Looney Tunes in the sequel alongside Lebron?
  8. WWE 24: Batista Next to the Daniel Bryan one, this was my favourite. I've never felt like i related as much to a wrestler outside of the ring as much as it did Batista through this documentary. I think every WWE as left me thinking "Jesus, I give them a lot more respect now." Though i already knew Batista was by all accounts very humble just hearing his struggles, that it all started because Dave wanted to put food on his family table. There was a moment in the documentary that show Batista & John Cena working a pratcitce match for a room of others looking for a chance...it's crazy to think that you were looking at two future Wrestlemania headliners in that moment. The amount of training and effort Batista put in his 2019 return compared to the lack of training in his 2014 return is amazing. The hard work paid off in the match at WrestleMania 35 and I'm glad he got to have his perfect ending.
  9. (Night 2) Juice vs Shingo was a bit of a good start to the B Block matches. Started off a bit slow, then picked up in the middle of it, and then had the hot finishing sequence. I could watch the two of them batter each other forever. A bit weird still that Shingo is trying to "prove" he can hang with the heavyweights even with the size he is (then again next to Juice he did look shorter) while Juice is still having some issues and trying to find himself after the loss (along with losing the US Championship) to Jon Moxley and attempting to get back on the winning track. I did NOT see Juice pinning him coming at all but i'm happy to see him succeed. Just means whoever faces Shingo next is in for an angry man. I love that Shota is making his entrance with Moxley, merchandise and all. I want this partnership to last as long as it can. This was honestly the match I was most looking forward to because they are both characters which i'm drawn to who can also wrestling really well. Taichi with his matches with Ishii has shown he can go when he needs to and i feel he did with Moxley. It's about a guarantee at this point that you're going to get a table or a chair with Moxley. It will be interesting who pins him first. Yano did it! The mad man! That's all. I have to give a shout out to Kevin Kelly for his commentary during the Goto vs White match, and to Goto and White themselves for the story they told. Going into depth about the success Goto had earlier in his career compared to the struggles he's had lately, his "rebirth" courtesy of Shibata and the LA Dojo and the lack of respect from White (shocker, really). Kevin Kelly called the hell out of that match, and both wrestlers played their parts well. I'm finding myself on the Jay White train more and more.

  11. The Flash has lost me but i'll never not think he is a great hero with the sacrifices he has had to make and growth along the way. Compared to Deadshot i feel he has the upper hand

  14. Mortal Kombat movie is R-Rated and features fatalities Mortal Kombat and Annihilation managed to be fun even though they were both PG-13. When I watched the as a kid, and even when I re-watch them now, I didn't / don't think, "This would be so much better with extreme violence." because they were able to accomplish the fun through fantasy. Now that being said the franchise is famous for its fatalities so to see the creativity needed to bring that to the screen will be fun. Downside though is that if they're killing off characters you're going to reach a wall at some point. That being said, I'd really like to see this new Mortal Kombat done in a Raid: Redemption-like style. They already got Joe Taslim and I hope the folks choreographing the fights are of the same calibre as those who worked on the other Taslim films I've seen, namely the Raid: Redemption and The Night Comes for Us.

    NXT UK Discussion

    I saw someone comment the other week that Toni Storm as champion has made more appearances for other promotions than she has NXT UK but that's the nature of the one hour format. Good to see her back and it was a good match between Candy Floss and her. Candy Floss was giving it all she got throughout the match and I liked the story, the dynamic there. At one point Toni was like 'stuff this' and knocked her around. Not the biggest Kay Lee Ray fan but her attack was cool. I was surprised to see Trent Seven enter on his own but his promo was really great there. The more I watch him the more I am sold about him as an individual rather than just a part of the larger group i was introduced to with him. He really brings you emotionally into what he does. Imagine one day him fighting to become NXT UK champion and the amazing release of emotion it would bring for so many after a gripping crawl to the top? He has underdog babyface writen all over him.
  16. Zack Snyder sets Norse mythology anime series at Netflix From what I've read from the articles concerning this it wont really be "Anime" but an animated series drawn in a style outside the more regular Japanese style. So more Avatar: The Last Air Bender (?). This sounds interesting. I actually think Snyder is a talented visual director with how Watchmen & 300 for example turned out visually just when it comes to the other aspects of the position he can slip. So being a showrunner instead, that in itself has me at least cautiously curious in how this will turn out and seems more his speed. I'm glad he's even got the spirit to keep working after what happened to his daughter. Also if anyone is interested in a Viking set anime, Vinland Saga is currently releasing and is set around the time they came to Canada. I've only watched the first episode and it's pretty good. So far they're still in Iceland but Leif Erikson is a character and has told the local kids about his journey.
  17. Do you think WWE would try to have a double 10 count? I think it's possible since they are trying to make both of them look good in the process. If these two can turn that brawl through the entrance set into a fun monster war we could be in for something great. It’s really hard to screw up a Last Man Standing match involving two brutes who want to kill each other but that will depend on the finish.
  18. This year is turning into a showcase of talent which is great to see compared to independent highlight reel than it has been in previous years. Good for Caveman Ugg. Representing Australia once again. I remember enjoying his team with Syd Parker as Prehistoric Death Cult (rolls off the tongue). Hopefully busts out his Phoenix Splash. He is one of the most athletic big men in pro wrestling and apparently has been training hard with Fale.
