  1. This week's NXT UK is the best I've seen Chris Hero in a while. Nice to see.
  2. For whatever reason I clicked on the WWE watch along. Matt Riddle is on the stream for the Goldberg match. Fun times.

    With the seemingly endless hate some people have for pineapple on pizza (I am not one of them), why is it universally accepted that black olives go on pizza? Because they don't.
  4. So, is Kofi a double champ? Thought never entered my mind until I watched Kofi & Truth rewatch their SummerSlam match. where he says a much. As someone who doesn't watch the weekly shows, has this ever been mentioned?
  5. Finished up the Vice documentary series The Wrestlers. Host by Damian Abraham, the show goes around the globe exploring the non-WWE world of wrestling. I quite enjoyed this. I generally have a problem with documentaries on subjects I know. And three of the first four episodes (Indy talent, MVP & Death Match) fall into this: I gained very little new information. Yet, I understand why they went with these first for a wide audience. Easing them in with something familiar to a WWE. But when they leave the United States, this series shines. 2 in Mexico (Indy Lucha & Exóticos) & 2 in Japan (Stardom & DDT) went into topics that I knew on a surface level, but went deeper. The three best episodes (Fighting Cholitas of Bolivia, Canada's Reserves & Voodoo Witchcatch in Congo) show wrestling in ways that I had no idea existed and was fantastic. Seriously, if you only watch one episode, the Congo episode in a must.
  6. Bipolar Rock 'N' Roller - A documentary on Mauro Ranallo and mental illness. I cannot say there is any new (to me) information here. I heard quite a few interviews Mauro did on the promotional tour. That said, in this case seeing has a bigger impact that hearing. Showtime uploaded it to their YouTube so worth the 70 minutes.
  7. I fell hopelessly behind on JR's podcast when he relaunched last year. Since I have a bunch of mindless work around the house, I figured I would try and run thru these quickly. One thing: He started in 4/18. Or, right before the Greatest Royal Rumble. I know this might be a bit of hindsight, but he does not come off well. At all.
  8. Took the weekend to run thru season 2 of Cloak and Dagger. Overall a better season than the first. A lot of the series takes place in a 'psychic realm' so to speak. About halfway thru I had a thought of "this is getting like Legion, but good". Meaning while Legion became an exercise in pretentious 'look at how smart and weird we are', I always knew and understand what was going on, even in fantasy land. Also, I think it is in the 7th episode, the Streets of Rage fight made the show.
  9. If you haven't already, watch Takeover: Chicago for the finals rematch which I think was even better. Also, the 2018 UK Championship Tournament shows, while not as great, have some good action, Zack Gibson being hated and Mustache Mountain vs. Strong/O'Reilly.
  10. Perpetually behind on NXT UK. I mostly enjoy the shows, but every time I hear that damn Gallus theme I get so damn sleepy.
  11. Go in blind. Everything you need is in the video before the 'match' starts. Also, Delete or Decay (the follow up) is really fun.

    The Music Thread

    Randomly heard today that Steven Tyler is 71. And that kinda shocked me. The punchline for old rock band has been The Rolling Stones for so long that Aerosmith has just kinda flown under the radar.
  13. Still going thru my VHS collection. Finally found a keeper. Even had the typed out match listings. Thanks Mike.
