    Grilling JR

    I know I've noticed it at other points. He's quick to agree with things that sound reasonable even if he doesn't remember or it might not be true. One thing I find funny so far is Conrad trying to manage JR on the ads. He was trying to do the railroad crossing one and JR just went on and on about something else. Then there are moments where the ads are obviously pre-tapes and they seem to come right in the middle of a sentence.

    WWE TV 5/13 - 5/19: Raw is Megaman

    This was quite the gem from the daily WO update:

    I haven't noticed this enough for it to strike me as an observation or anything yet, but I'll be paying attention to see if I notice it more going forward. Any other notable examples? I definitely thought JR was referring to Neidhart at first - but didn't want to go there due to the timing with his recent passing and all. But then Conrad threw the Lex curveball and JR went along with it from there. JR speaks in generalities, well, in general though. A lot. As long as we continue to get good stories and shows of this caliber, I'm good with it.

    Have Adam Page issue an open challenge to any top-tier cruiserweight as a replacement, Jack Evans answers, he bends his ass back over to put Page over in a squash. Page takes the mic, bullshits somewhat, issues another challenge that is answered by John Moxley. The "match" is a total washout as Page takes a powder while Moxley stands tall in the ring but it means you retain the Hangman Page match as a major moment on the card, you retain Page going over and, with Moxley debuting in his orbit, you ensure Hangman Page is a serious contender going forward and you have another hook for the first TV show with a former WWE star showing up where the big boys play.

    I have a Houston program from 1982 and a Detroit one and a few more WWWF ones heading my way. I will get those scanned when I get a chance.

    Money In The Bank 2019

    My prediction for Game of Thrones is that the show fades to black, and then fades back in on Tony Soprano and his family sitting in the restaurant and Tony says "Sorry, I was just had a daydream about swords and dragons for a minute there."

    There's so much fat on the shows now. I go through and watch just the matches and fast forward through the rest. I can usually get through a 4 hour PPV in less than 2 hours.

    The mystery continues to unfold as the Briscos admit their involvement. Man I cant wait to find out who's behind all this. I like the Boomer/Rufus storyline. Looks like Rufus was set up. Kevin Kelly better be careful now that he's getting involved in the House of Humperdink's business. Solid TV main event as Dusty puts "The best" down with the bionic elbow. WOW! A couple of title changes as Purple Haze wins the TV title and Gino wastes no time and wins the Florida championship! Also, how about Mike Davis with that huge upset over Dory Funk. Cuban Assassin is on a roll in Florida.

    Sansa wins MITB. She cashes in immediately on Dany, who does the job on her way out. The end.

    And then basically admits it was a complete cop out and a way to cover their ass, which is refreshing. Yeah, this show is a clear cut winner thus far. Really curious about next week's edition, it's really an heavy topic.

    Money In The Bank 2019

    Yeah, Sami has to have the briefcase since it seems like the natural progression of his character and the promos he's been cutting. As for the women, I can see Becky beating Lacey in the opening match but succumbing to Charlotte later on in the evening. You would hope that Lacey Evans would cost Becky the title in order to keep her strong but I'll bet pounds to pennies that Charlotte gets a visual pinfall. Other than those two matches, the card seems as haphazard and slapdash as usual.

    Grilling JR

    I never have any time to really write about either this or Bischoff's show. It's very enjoyable so far. The part I find most amusing with JR is when he just sort of guesses, or he goes along with Conrad's guess, when it's obviously he doesn't remember. Like with the whole "Davey was hanging out with the wrong people." shtick, and JR was really just speaking of generalities, but when Conrad mentions Luger, he sort of makes it seem he was obviously talking about Luger, when he obviously wasn't talking about Luger at all. That sort of thing happens a few times an episode.

    Alright. I'm fully on board with this show for now. The latest episode reviewing the events surrounding Beware of Dog was a sleeper hit. Plenty of entertaining stories and little gems. It was a topic I honestly wasn't expecting much from (especially since Prichard already covered it a few years back), but I really dug it. Buck Johnson. Bearcat Johnson. Bobo Johnson. Porkchop Johnson. Junkyard Johnson. Thunderbolt Johnson. Whateverthefuck Johnson. The story of coming up with a name for Ahmed Johnson was tremendous and should be heard by all. Enjoyed the story about having lunch with Rocky at the diner. Rock expressing how he'd like to pay for both meals but doesn't have the money is pitch perfect. Even if you told me it was embellished or exaggerated (and I'm not saying that it is or anything), it sums up everything about the Rock's personality that you've heard from countless people before. Good stuff. Loved hearing JR go into detail about Yoko's weight gain and health issues. We've heard some of this stuff from Bruce before, but JR tackles it with a more personalized approach. He recalls explaining to Yoko that he is going to literally eat his way out of a job if he doesn't change his lifestyle. Also, apparently among Yoko's favorite foods were fried turkey tails slathered & dipped in mayonnaise. Yikes, Yokes. It's good to hear so many people (Austin, Corny, JR, even Bruce) sound off on Savio Vega's skills and put him over as a great worker these past several years. I hope it resonates and reaches more & more people, because I still hear/see some folks talking about Savio as if he's just the punchline for how disappointing or underwhelming a "mystery partner" reveal can turn out. Apparently, an early idea pitched for the Goldust character included having Marlena wear a PROSTHETIC PENIS. That's right. So that the outline of a dick could be visible through her gowns and dresses. Incredible. I cracked up at Conrad calling bullshit whenever JR tried defending the Goldust premise. Conrad outright asks JR if he even knew what "androgynous" meant before hearing it used to describe the Goldust character. "Naw. I can't even spell it now!" At least Ross sort of relents and admits that he just heard it repeated so many times in those meetings. Next week is Over The Edge '99. That should be interesting. I give The Lapsed Fan a lot of shit (and rightfully so), but their coverage of that show was among their very best ever. I'm curious to see which angles or approaches Conrad chooses to employ, because there's just SO MUCH ground to cover. And with Jim being right there at ground zero as the tragedy happened, oof. It's a delicate deal, for sure. I didn't give JR's old podcast any time whatsoever, but this new format absolutely works for me. JR as the host with rotating guests was meh. But JR as storyteller, answering questions while Conrad hosts and serves as a steady tour guide is much better.

    WWE TV 5/13 - 5/19: Raw is Megaman

    Dasha Fuentes explained why she was released from WWE. Even though she was positive and upbeat about the whole thing, working there sounds like a living hell. https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2019/05/dasha-fuentes-talks-how-roman-reigns-segment-led-to-her-654285/

    Money In The Bank 2019

    I don't watch GoT, so I'll be here from the beginning. The pre-show match is seriously odd, not only because it's Raw vs. SD for no reason, but also because it definitely belongs on the main show. I am rooting for a Dana Brooke victory. I don't care if she's not the "best worker" or whatever the "movez" crowd thinks. She's someone new and fresh to push, which can't be said about Bayley, who is still IMO running on her goodwill from NXT for the most part (even though the move to SDL and "split" with Sasha has given her somewhat of a boost). Dana won't win though, so it doesn't matter. I'd also settle for a Nikki Cross victory, but that won't happen either.

    Seriously did they explain why a Raw team is challenging for the SD titles? "Wild Card Rule" I guess?

    Money In The Bank 2019

    I haven't seen so much as a millisecond of Game of Thrones and I still probably won't watch this live. The Network makes it too easy to cherry-pick after the fact, which is a necessity with these interminable 4-hour PPVs.

    Angel de Oro & Niebla Roja vs Adam Brooks & Mecha Wolf 450 (from The Crash) at Arena Mexico from May 3rd is an easy MOTYC.
  21. Strong BJ 6 man tag at Korakuen, of course this is fucking piff it's basically a preview/buildup of the Daisuke vs Yuji title match in Yokohama, and it has 10 times the intensity and urgency that match had. Both Sekimoto and specially Okabayashi are awesome as the "captains" of their teams, Kamitani did his thing, Nomura was of course dope and vicious when needed, Daichi was seemed more motivated than usual and Hyodo is the newest young lion out of their dojo, and he gets some pretty nice spots as a human wrecking ball. I guess most people would only see this as a "recommendation", but whatever, I dare y'all to not have fun watching it!!

    This is the only footage I know about...one match from the Cornette tapes https://forums.prowrestlingonly.com/topic/43471-1979-01-07-macw-charlotte-nc-jimmy-snuka-paul-orndorff-vs-ric-flair-big-john-studd/
  23. Mid-South was the place where TA really learned. They paired him with Wrestling 2. He wrestled Ladd,Reed, Dibiase, Eaton, Condrey, Wrestling 2 and others. When Dusty brought him to Crockett he was ready to be the guy. His feud with Ladd has been a really solid one, and one that doesn't get mentioned enough in the history of wrestling. I believe we have around 6 of their matches on tape. I was lucky to see one live in Htown. This was TA's feud that cemented him as being ready. This is a cage match and it really wasn't great, but it told a story. TA gets an early shine by working the arm. Ladd uses his size to take control. He beats on him for a bit. TA mounts a comeback. He uses the cage as a weapon. Ladd teases the foreign object, but uses the cage to stun TA. Ladd then finishes him off with the foreign object. 2 1/2*

    Is there much footage of Studd and Flair as a tag team?

    Hansen and Brody are together and all is right with the world. I mean, it's horrible news if you're Ivan Koloff or the Iron Sheik, but it's great for the rest of us.

    When's the last time Daniel Bryan was on the pre-show? That's a weird call. Pulling for Bayley to win MITB. She's been looking really good this year.

    Lord, Randy Savage murdering Bobby Heenan and Patera, Blackwell, Williams, and Fernandez brawling around them would be a show I watched over and over again until the tape broke.
