    WWE TV 09/16 - 09/22 Stop pushing Seth down our throats!

    Luckiest fan ever, and future comedy hall of famer for sure. There are also tons of great comments comparing J.R. and Mauro, as well as fans correctly identifying that Mauro makes Takeover feel even more special. As for Cobin, I think people forget how "young" he is in the business. He hasn't quite put the package together yet, but he's inching closer every year. Mauro calling his matches would make the difference, I feel. (Okay, lol, I'm sorry...I couldn't resist!)
  2. Well, that doesn't really mean anything IMO. Women stay in abusive relationships for years - decades even. I'm not saying that Rich Swann is abusive. But I'm also not saying that he isn't.
  3. Reading the Twitter thread, it seems both Moose and Sami Callihan have a history of domestic violence. Fucking scumbags.

    Had a moment of weakness and considered changing my forum avatar to Mauro... ...but that moment has passed. However, imagine how much better the biggest hits of the year - Kofimania, etc. - would've been if Mauro had been the one providing the soundtrack.

    In case I've killed this thread... (Psst, I wasn't being serious in my last post to @The Thread Killer.)

    Mauro's neighbors say he's a polite, well-behaved boy who's a pleasure to be around. Perhaps it is you who is the problem and not Mauro.

    I mean, it's certainly possible. But the degree of shittiness is what's in question. We've all heard things about J.R. (drunk, grouchy), Solie (drunk), Heenan (drunk), etc., so this would hardly be a phenomenon unique to Mauro. But there's a difference between "not being the easiest to work with" and (to random women) "you're a f***king c***" (or whatever that weird Cage Dog piece said).

    Didn't say all-time. J.R. in his prime still holds that crown (I am too young to have lived through Gordon Solie's heyday, though I've heard him after the fact), and I admittedly have a soft spot for all of my childhood commentators (even the lousy ones). But I do think Mauro is the best currently. You can name your Ian Riccabonis and Vic Josephs all you want, but to me, they're interchangeable and indecipherable voices. When Mauro's making the call, I know it.

    No one's ever going to go broke betting on the scumminess of rasslin' personalities, so anything's possible. With that said, I am bit skeptical about an unsourced (and now defunct) gossip blog called "Cage Potato." If there was anything to this, wouldn't someone - anyone - more credible have picked up on it? Again, doesn't mean it's not true, but I am not going to believe it blindly. Then again, rasslin' fans will believe TMZ types who post unverified crap about wrestlers throwing tantrums on floors, so no one's ever going to go broke either betting on the general naivety and stupidity of the so-called "smart" rasslin' audience - especially those on Twitter and website comment sections. As for the Mauro doc, while I certainly liked it a lot, found it eye-opening, and reviewed it positively, I'm sure I was one of many who took his cannabis claims at face value because he said it helped him (and while I have no reason to disbelieve him on that, it's clearly not a one size fits all solution). The fact is, most people watching the doc - thankfully - will never truly be able to comprehend the full extent of his mental illness. I do think he was a lot more open and raw than most people would be, so I give him and the doc a lot of credit for that. He's the best in the business, bar none. No one brings the excitement, creativity, and "big game feel" to wrestling the way he does. No one!

    I have no idea if any of those are real, but I love them all. In a company so devoid of distinctive personalities at the commentary table, Mauro Ranallo stands head and shoulders above the rest of the industry as a true original. The fact that he's so easily parodied is proof that he has a memorable style.
  11. Kenny Omega embarrassed himself thoroughly in a recent interview: It's one thing to criticize NXT - that's fair game - but going after fellow wrestlers is petty, shitty, and a bad look for both him and AEW. Part of me feels bad for Kenny though. Whatever "cool" he had in Japan has completely evaporated in AEW. He's a geek now, and it's not because of a worked won-loss record that's obviously setting up some kind of angle. I dunno what it is exactly, but something is definitely missing... Video:
