Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

Ruby Soho released the third of her series of videos and I cannot fucking believe they did NOTHING with her - not just on the main roster, but even on NXT.

She's like the coolest fucking person on the planet. Bless her soul, man.

Y'know, Adam Cole might be the most professional guy in the biz right now. He could have really fucked the company over since they were stupid and didn't realize his deal was up prior to the show he as main eventing, he could have gone full Jeff Jarrett and asked for a huge payday to show up...hell he could have just said FU and really pantsed them by showing up on Dynamite while NXT was still promoting the match, but he signed a month extension so the show would be covered and did his job (literally and figuratively) like a pro.

Eric Fields, left, and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on the right

I've looked like Keanu Reeves, Anthony La Paglia and a young Richard Gere according to various women at various times. This fucker gets to look like Dwayne...
*That's Eric Fields, Morgan County Police Officer on either the left or the right.

In  rare case of social media being good, Daffney was live on Instagram looking in bad shape and talking about suicide and Wrestling Twitter mobilized to alert the local PD. She apparently moved recently so no one seems to know her exact location but seeing everyone working together to try to get her help was a great thing to see. Hopefully it has a positive ending.

are you taking the piss right now lol

It was 1990-ish, so I was being compared to softcock prettyboy Keanu. I looked up to not-so-prettyboys like Ax and Smash.

To be fair, I did bear an uncanny resemblance to Theodore "Ted" Logan Esq. Don't know where my girlfriend pulled La Paglia from - she must have been squinting.

Apparently not. This is gutting.

I've come to the first MSG show of 1984, the one where Hogan takes the title. 

 

Besides the absolute dogshit opener with Tony Garea, it's really night and day from 1983's MSG shows. The lighting is completely different, the mat color changed to the standard WWE canvas, camera work is about 50/50 between hard cam and handheld (I don't think hand helds were used at ALL in the past couple of MSG shows I had seen from 1981-83 despite there being camera men on the floor filming, they never cut to those shots". 

 

Not to mention the talent influx: Guys like Hogan, Orndorff, Tiger Chung Lee (aka "The Chunger"), Piper, Masked Superstar. Not to say there isn't a lot of hold overs: Tony Garea, Jose Luis Rivera, Sal Bellomo, Strongbow, Fuji, and what seems to be a never ending feud of Andre/Rocky Johnson + rotating partner vs The Samoans that had been going on for over a year at this point.

Is it okay to basically pre-emptively ban David Benoit from major league wrestling because his face looks so so much like his dad and well, you know. I ask cuz I see he has joined some indy promotion or something and I genuinely don't know which side I lean towards. A couple of years back, he said he wanted to wrestle as Chris Benoit Jr. and like, that is obviously not happening.

Japan would probably insist on him being Wild Pegasus Jr, which actually would probably be better for him. 

I feel bad for David since he clearly has the passion and wants to do this, and in a different timeline he would probably be a big star just off his name alone. Instead he's the most radioactive person possible for reasons he had nothing to do with. Dude went from having the best genetic luck possible for wrestling to having the worst.

Only 7 entrants of the 2015 Royal Rumble still wrestle for WWE.

Wow.  Even more amazing than it reads because it feels like we've been watching the same roster for closer to 15 years given how they book and present the product.

I just wanted to make sure everyone on PWO saw this. Spreading some good news.

 

That’s great. West and Tenay really jelled as a team and were a fun part of early era TNA wrestling.

I checked out the 1989 Rumble (first with 30) and seven years later only four were still with WWF: Shawn Michaels as champion, Jake Roberts returning for a brief run and the Bushwhackers (who at this point in 1996 were 10 days away from their last match.)

You missed Marty Jannetty; and technically DiBiase and Hennig were with the company as well in January 96.

Yeah...his dad was a monster. Why should his son pay for his sins? So we can feel more "comfortable"?

Folks a Bryan Danielson-Negro Casas Arena Mexico apuestas match is not impossible at this point. Bryan figures to work indies and international just as much as Mox and my brain can't comprehend him with that level of artistic freedom and having the star power to be able to do whatever he wants.

I could see them wanting to bring in Bryan since he would certainly be a draw for the tourist audience they go for. Especially if Casas pushed for it since he's someone politically connected enough that they would at least hear him out if he asked.

I think you're giving them too much credit. It wouldn't surprise me if the people in charge of CMLL don't know who Bryan Danielson is as he wasn't a big star in the 90s.

I question whether Bryan would be much of a draw to the tourist audience. I figure someone going to a CMLL show as a tourist attraction wants to see pure lucha libre. To a typical American, that means guys in masks doing flips and dives.
