    Comic books and Manga Thread

    I enjoyed that run when I read it 20 + years ago. I was on a pretty big Bryne kick at the time. Man of Steel was a great modernization of the origin imo. It was interesting in that it was clearly influenced by the 1978 Superman movie, but would end up itself influencing the eventual Lois & Clark TV show in the 90s. The main Superman title was good, although I remember it petering out at the end. Action Comics, which became a team up book, had some highlights as well, depending on the guest

    AEW Dynamite - July 28, 2021 - Fight for the Fallen

    Not a bad idea at all, and it leaves Hangman still needing a win over Omega as a continuing quest

    Yeah, no point half assing Hangman's ascent. When he wins, he needs to then be presented as the unquestioned number 1 guy. I think you can stretch it out a bit and have Omega have his dream matches with Danielson and Punk, because the fans do want that. Maybe have Hangman win the strap on a year ending show to go into 2022 with a fresh start, although I guess you may want to do that match on PPV

    As far as vs Backlund goes, there are five matches at MSG over a 5 year stretch: *2/19/79 3/26/79 10/19/81 *11/23/81 *4/23/84 The starred ones are must see. There are also two Spectrum matches, 12/12/81 and 1/16/82 (cage) worth watching if you can find them

    Sometimes you have to work with people you don't like. Once a week, where you don't really have to be in contact with each other, isn't a dealbreaker

    Money in the Bank 2021

    Well, they could push that Cena is going for #17 and breaking the tie with Flair. Look, I dont watch WWE, and haven't outside of a few big shows for many years, so maybe I'm wrong and Sexton Hardcastle is winning the strap tonight

    Reigns is facing Cena at Summerslam? No point beating him for the first time in forever before that

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Totally agree. I got into Astro City around 98-99 and it's been one of my all-time fave series since completing the first volume. Back then, and through the 00s, the publishing schedule was often pretty spotty, but I always came back to it, even when I wasn't otherwise reading comics. I've finally found the last few volumes and am in the process of completing the series (almost done vol 13). Love how characters introduced in passing back in the first few volumes eventually get their stories fleshed out 10-15-20 years later. This comic is the ultimate in rewarding patience

    The Rock

    Aw come on, Bruno broke his neck against Hansen in 76 and that match was still a banger... I kid. I know Rock was injured and I do feel a bit bad for shitting on the match. Still, I think the point stands on that run being lackluster

    The Rock

    I remember that comeback promo being like a hard slap to the face, reminding me how fun and exciting WWE used to be. Early 2011 WWE was comatose from what I remember. But yeah, it was pretty much downhill from there for Rocky. I wasn't even that high on the first Cena match at the time. 2nd one outright stunk. This run would also be the template for the future: a neverending succession of returning stars as Vince's preferred booking crutch for slapped together main events and short-term gains. I hear Goldberg's coming back again. Oh boy

    Is this footage that's been around for a while? I'm always interested in anything that showcases why Johnny Valentine was an all time great

    I started watching WWF regularly in the summer of 1986, literally a week or two after his heel turn on Hogan (did get to see it shortly after it happened at a friend's house, his brothers taped all the shows). That was basically the first big feud that I followed in real time. Must've watched the SNME cage dozens of times. That was one of the biggest drawing feuds of Hogan's WWF run, if not the biggest. A great asshole heel who could go with the best of them in that 84-87 period RIP
