  2. I like the structure of this match. It's not rocket science and it feels kind of rushed, but you probably don't want these guys going very long. Jeff going over early let Matt get the MVP of the match, because he looks great being thrown into the cage. Jeff was at his best when he was on the outside of the cage not being able to help his brother. E&C playing border control on Jeff was a good way to make this match stand-out. I think his Whisper in the Wind from the top really didn't look great, but the spots where he tried to climb the cage only to splat on the floor all did. That Whisper in the Wind was probably the worse thing in this match other than Michael Cole. With these two teams in a gimmick match on a PPV, you know they are also going to give you a handful of nutty bumps. I already mentioned Jeff's leap off the top, and while it didn't look good, it's certainly a nutty bump that pleased the crowd. Personally I prefer Matt getting superplexed, Christian's bump off the ladder from Lita's rana, and Edge taking the con-chair-to. The camera missed the set-up, but Christian flying into Matt while he was between the cage and the ropes looked really cool too. The cage setting made Edge look better than his usual shitty self too. A lot of the offense was centered around throwing Matt into the cage and the cage obstructed the view of Edge's shitty punches a little bit.

    Wrestlemania 35: The KawadaSmile tribute thread

    That pinfall definitely broke kayfabe. Ronda shouldn't have a problem with that.

    Brock losing means he's definitely going to fight D.C. or Jon Jones, right?
  5. TV ratings are a terrible indicator of popularity in today's world. And I would think the audience for SNL is probably too "cool" to want to watch WWE to see those two dudes. I highly doubt they are pushing any kind of numbers.
  6. What was the point of the beat the clock challenge? Was there any reward for winning? The Riot Squad didn't have anything going for them before, but it's just burying them a little deeper. Ronda had a good line when she was at the top of the stage "you didn't win anything." Exactly my thoughts. Gimmicks like beat the clock make no sense when there are no stakes.
  7. A Kofi blade job would have put this thing over the top. It was already good, but Kofi bleeding would have just made this thing feel that much more important.
  8. I didn't see the show, what did he say?

    Interest in a Puerto Rico watch project?

    I'd be interested in popping in whenever a cage matches are up. I'm doing my own little cage match project soon, so Puerto Rican cage matches sound interesting to me.

  11. Maybe this is too off-topic, if so, I apologize. I am just curious about this thought, because I don't know if I agree with it or not. I just want to know how much money can a "good" person make? At what point do you become bad when you chase money? For instance, what would you do for X amount of money? I'm just curious, because it's always people underneath the people who are making the money that are throwing pebbles at them. And I don't know if it is right or wrong to do so, or if the people throwing those pebbles would take "shut-up and stop complaining" money if it was offered. I think there are a lot of things wrong with how the WWE handled the Saudi Arabia thing, but I can't honestly say I would have done anything any differently if I stood to make that much money from it. But I'll never be in that situation, so I don't know.

    Wrestling in unusual contexts

    Weirdo arthouse director Guy Maddin made a short film called Sombra dolorosa which features a woman wrestling death to save her daughter from suicide after the patriarch of the family died. It's kind of like the arthouse version of Nacho Libre or something. Guy Maddin is hard to describe. It's only four minutes and if you like weird/surreal cinema, check it out. I'm a big fan.

    General Chat topic

    Narrowing down to ten is tough. - The Wire - The Sopranos - True Detective (Season 1) - I, Claudius - Fawlty Towers - King of the Hill - Frasier - The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson - Parks and Recreation - Bob's Burgers EDIT: I forgot Breaking Bad and Planet Earth. I feel like both of those are in my top ten, but I don't know what to take out. Also, shouts outs to Aaahhh!!! Real Monsters. DOUBLE EDIT: I am really into all sorts of music. Right now, I am mainly into hip hop and country music. Not the radio country music that is absolutely deplorable. Modern country artists I am into are Sturgill Simpson, Cody Jinks, Hellbound Glory, Chris Stapleton, Angaleena Presley, Karen Jonas, and Kacey Musgraves (didn't dig her last album though.) As far as hip hop goes, I am a huge Kanye fan. I dig Run the Jewels, Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, and OutKast. TRIPLE EDIT: I mainly follow American football and the NBA, but I am interested in all sorts of sports and will check up on football (soccer), MMA, boxing and others. I am a huge Texas Longhorns fan for college football, Dallas Cowboys fan, and OKC Thunder fan.
