  1. Past hour
  2. Best part was Xavier Woods' exper timing popping his jacket open to reveal his THE MAN shirt. Also Becky's happy go lucky steampunk theme doesn't fit with her new gimmick. It's like having Stone Cold come out to pop music.

    If TNA/ROH/WWE is off limits. Lots of joshi, too many to name, but there is 15-30 people they could snatch up just from there that would be great. Mercedes Martinez, Kimber Lee, Kay Lee Ray (maybe she went to NXT, I forget), Jordyanne Grace, Tessa Blanchard, Santana Garrett, Karen Q, Shotzi Blackheart, Deliah Doom, Penelope Ford, Solo Darling, Team Sea Stars, Willow Nightingale, Twisted Sisters, Kris Statlander, Kylie Rae, Viper (if not in NXT, I forgot if they got Alpha Female or Viper, but whichever if you can), Shazza McKenzie, Faye Jackson, Jessika Havok, Allysin Kay/Sienna, Cheerleader Melissa, Kris Wolf, Kikyo, Madison Rayne, Kaitlyn, Vanessa Kraven I'm sure there is a ton more if I really put some work into thinking about it. There is a lot of great talent out there.

    OK. So if you were the head of talent relations for AEW, who would you try to sign?

    They'd need JR and Schiavone calling it in the booth or no buys though.

    Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

    Yeah. I'm right there with you. I've kept up with the show for the most part, but it's been Attitude Era overkill for what feels like six months straight. I know that's not actually the case, but it sure feels like it. The funny thing is - Bruce talked up his excitement over discussing the 99 Rumble for a few weeks. He hinted that he had some fun stories to share about Vince and the decision-making that went into the Rumble that year. We got none of that though. Zilch. Unless, I guess, you count his brief mention about Vince getting upset with the chicken for not cooperating in those segments. That would've been funny, but he barely spoke about it, wasn't there in person for it, and really only referenced it by way of answering a listener's question. I was there in Beaumont for the lead-in Raw, and wrestling was red hot at my school around this time. But I remember mostly regretting the experience. There was way too much Undertaker/Ministry bullshit, and the Mark Henry stuff felt embarrassing even at the time. The only other thing I really committed to memory was seeing Road Dogg outside the building, and a BUNCH of those stupid laser pointers. Like, laser pointers for fucking days. There just wasn't much to discuss here. I guess someone should seek this episode out if they care to hear Ryan Shamrock's origin story, or maybe why Mabel was brought back. But other than that? Yawn. It's a bore. Looking forward to the 2004 Rumble one though. I've been calling for them to explore more of that 03-08 territory, as it still feels fresh and relatively ripe with potential stories from Bruce. Conrad sounds thirsty as fuck to talk about anything Benoit (no surprise there), and Bruce is always down to discuss his time around Eddie. Plus there's a noticeable change in the air around this period, with the vanilla midgets getting their shots on top & whatnot. Plus Bob Holly! Fuck yeah! GIVE 'IM THE BELT!!
  11. Don't worry about the "hillbilly " line. That was Graves calling on the fly.

    ECW (PROJECT19)

    January 15th, 2019 The Return of Extreme Championship Wrestling - Live Report With little fanfare and out of nowhere, professional wrestler and former face of ECW, Tommy Dreamer sent out 3 tweets Tuesday morning, urging fans to show up to the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA to "witness something special." 300 people were told they would get in to the venue that can fit many more. Upon entering the 2300 Arena fans were greeted with a familiar sight, though lost long ago... One by one, you heard the gasps. And then the chants. E C DUB E C DUB E C DUB When 300 individuals had entered, the doors to the arena were shut. The lights went out to more gasps and applause. A familiar, distorted synth filled the arena, followed by a few simple guitar shots and... EXXXXXXXTTRRRRREEEEEMMMEEEEE The applause and chanting reached a fever pitch, before the lights turned back on - in the middle of the ring, Tommy Dreamer. Tommy Dreamer: "They say the classics never go out of style.... I dare you to show me you mother fuckers." E C DUB E C DUB E C DUB Dreamer: "As of January 1st, World Wrestling Entertainment has relinquished the rights to the name of Extreme Championship Wrestling. They keep the old shit. The footage, the history. Their own fucking narrative. Today? Today we start new. ECW is now owned, in full, by Tommy Dreamer. ECW now belongs back where it belongs - with you. Are you READY? Tonight is just a preview of what will become. The names that I have signed to be here, to wrestle for YOU, they will be revealed soon. And to the 85,000 of you watching right now on YouTube... I hope you're ready to get hardcore. Enough of me fuckin' yapping. E-C-W IS BACK. The crowd roared with applause and screams as Tommy left the ring, slapping hands with just about everyone he could. Before heading behind the curtain to the back, he reached behind and pulled out a Singapore Cane to loud applause. Hoisting it in the air, Dreamer headed to the back. January 15th, 2019 ECW Results: LAX (Santana & Ortiz) def. The Workhorsemen (James Drake & Anthony Henry) In a match worked with high intensity, but little in the way of weapons, the first ECW match in its rebirth had that familiar feel of tag team chaos. All 4 men took dives to the outside at one point, Ortiz and Drake battled it out with big strikes, while Santana and Henry paired off in a battle of two of the most athletic men in wrestling today. LAX secured the victory with a huge Powerbomb/Blockbuster combo on Henry. Jeff Cobb def. Darby Allin Always the underdog, Darby fought valiantly against the power Cobb, but after about a dozen suplexes, including an overhead toss over the top rope to the floor, the Tour of the Islands put Darby to rest. Chris Dickinson Vs. Demus 3:16 went to a no contest These two insane dudes brawled through the crowd, broke about a half dozen tables, used glass bottles on one another and drew blood, but the match ended after The Dirty Daddy completely brutalized Demus with 3 consecutive Pazuzu Bombs on the stairs, before walking away from the match. Demus was helped to the back. Trevor Lee came out, flipping off the crowd and to massive applause turned to boos quickly. He cut a promo about how embarrassing Philadelphia is, how any title that comes out of this shitty revival promotion belongs to him and proceeded to challenge anyone in the back to a match. After leaving the crowd hanging for a few moments, before "Ultimate Flow" by Clipse & The Re-Up Gang blasts over the speakers. The crowd remains silent, when out from behind the curtain an unexpected face pops out. Clad in a blue and green singlet, with blue wrestling jacket on top - it's Big E Langston! The crowd roars with exciting at Big E being out of the WWE and in ECW. Trevor is terrified, but plays it cool and attacks as Big E enters the ring. Big E eventually shrugs him off, before dominating Trevor for a few minutes. When Big E sets up Trevor for the Big Ending, Pierre Carl Oullete aka PCO rushes out and attacks Big E with a chair! Trevor and PCO lay waste to Big E, bloodying him, before they are run off by Jeff Cobb, who clears the ring and helps Big E to the back. The familiar sounds of punks talking to one another for 20 seconds fills the speakers before: "To all my friends present, past and beyond Especially those who weren't with us too long Life is the most precious thing you can lose While you were here the fun was never ending Laugh a minute was only beginning Canton, Colvin, Nichols, this one's for you" OOOOO OOOOOOOOO OOOOOOO With his signature index finger in the air, Biff Busick storms out from behind the curtain in his familiar black and yellow trunks, while the crowd sings along to his iconic theme. The crowd applauds and screams, breaking out into BIFF chants as his theme comes to an end. But then the lights go out, while "For Whom the Bell Tolls" creeps over the loudspeakers. NICK FUCKIN GAGE NICK FUCKIN GAGE NICK FUCKIN GAGE NICK FUCKIN GAGE NICK FUCKIN GAGE As if summoned from the desires of 300 bloodthirsty fans, Nick Gage appears on the entrance, before making his way to the ring. He doesn't enter, but reaches under, pulls out a garbage can, a cane, crutches, metal pans, tables, and Biff has had enough and hits a over the top dive onto Gage, knocking him down. It doesn't take long though for Gage to use the weapons laying around the ring and turn the tide of the match. He bloodies Biff up repeatedly with the cookie sheet and Singapore Cane before hitting a Frog Splash through a table for the win. Gage stands tall in the ring, while a bloody Biff stands up, extending his hand. Gage daps him, and cuts a promo as Tommy Dreamer comes to the ring applauding. The YouTube feed is cut there, sending the wrestling world buzzing with all the exciting moves happening in 2019. Stay tuned this week as Dreamer officially announces his plans for ECW to the press.
  13. Hell yeah, dude. I actually watched Raw tonight when I got home when I saw Heavy Machinery was on. First WWE TV I have watched in months and I mostly enjoyed it. Unfortuntately, Nikki Cross got cut from the Hulu version, though.

    Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard

    I must value the fact that Bruce was so closely involved with the inner workings of the company more than I realize, because when I stop and think about it, so much about the podcast in general bothers me. Yet, with few exceptions, I listen each week. That's been challenged at periods over the last year, because I've long since had my fill on Attitude Era content. Obviously that's the stuff that gets them the most downloads, and they've got the built-in excuse that the podcast has been concurrent with the 20-year anniversary for a lot of the shows they've covered. As a lot of people have pointed out, though, it's such well-covered ground at this point that it feels like we've already heard most of the anecdotes from Bruce surrounding this time. I can look past a lot of that, though, but what has really challenged my desire to tune in each week is the anti-Meltzer stuff. I'm not even a reader of Meltzer, but the "FUCK DAVE MELTZER" gimmick is so tedious that it's almost gotten me to stop listening mid-show. Bruce's black and white view of Dave, I think, ends up hurting his credibility when it comes to shooting down legitimate complaints about Dave. Why should someone take Bruce's dismissal of something Meltzer wrote at face value when he's shown again and again a near-total unwillingness to concede anything if it means aligning with Dave's opinion? Or, instead of laying out a cohesive rebuttal to something he disagrees with, he just dives into his "Oh if it had been in Japan, he would've given in 11 stars" shtick. Anyway, I'm not even much a fan of the mid-2000s WWF, but I'm glad we're getting a non-AE show this week. It'll be a nice palette cleanser from the seemingly endless Monday Night Wars-related stuff we've gotten so much of.

  16. Well given that Corey Graves was calling him a hillbilly on RAW, I don't have a good feeling on it. Hopefully Otis's charisma will overcome whatever shit they think of So he is now Andrade not Andrade 'Cien" Almas. Sure why not An incredible match against Rey and hopefully building to many more matches
  17. Why did Mandy need a photographer to jump out of the bathroom and take photos of her and Jimmy when a cameraman was in the room with them? I guess when they're not in the arena, the camera isn't there? Or something.
  18. This SD has been batshit insane. Awesome week for WWE TV.

    Interesting roster.
  21. God bless Rey and his synthetic knees for still doing shit like that when he's like 45
  22. Stop doing 30 minute title matches. It's just not necessary. I get they wanted to make Coffey look as strong as possible in losing, but this was just overkill at its very core which has become a theme for Pete Dunne recently for whatever reason. There was some really great stuff from like the 10 to 25 minute mark. And then they just kept going and going and going.. 3 Bitter End kick outs? Really? For this literal nobody? And then the botches at the end were just the icing on the cake of this awkward mess. At least they had WALTER at the end there to save this disappointment, ***3/4.
  23. Even though I'll say it's a good match, this was highly disappointing to me. The workrate was obviously good, but everything just felt super sanitized. It was your generic WWE structure where one team works a guy for a really long time only for the hot tag to be made which was to Tyler who did his usual stuff. It's hard for me to give a shit about Gibson and Drake when the latter contributes absolutely nothing to the match. Trent's FIP segment was the same stuff you've seen him do a thousand times before, ***3/4.
  24. REY MYSTERIO IS THE BEST WRESTLER EVER HOLY FUCKING SHIT
