TLC was better than expected thanks to meningitis but yet in the modern world of a million hours of wrestling a week, was still forgotten a few days later even with Angle and Styles. But that’s always going to happen when you make the PPVs DREAM MATCH FACTORIES with nothing affecting the weekly shows.
No idea what the point of Kalisto’s CWC title reign was. Ditto Tozawa, but at least Kalisto gives better promos.
Cuphead was a great game but fuck playing it again for A+ ranks.
Avalanche is a nice guy so he did his best to play a dick. Bad Bones was more convincing as a dick because he did his video the day of the table not-breaking, whereas Avalanche had to be interupted playing Gears of War.
Christi Jaynes’ dive off the top is being discussed on Twitter because people can’t believe she was trying to go corner-to-corner off the top rope, which is something not even King Ricochet could pull off. But it also doesn’t make sense for Saraya Knight to walk towards her and even less sense for Jaynes to see Saraya hasn’t walked out the corner and not come down off the top rope or…ah whatever. Get Jesse Ventura on it.
NJPW was weird in 2002, Kendo Kashin took on Daijiro Matsui (?!) and Great Khali was in a main event tag match.
The cameras don’t show (as the editing team did their job) but Julian Nero missed the knee-drop on Da Mack, which is why he was trying to kick out. Ref must not have noticed it which is why he counted the pin despite Mack kicking out so Nero could presumably do it again and hit. When he’s shrugging at 6:14 he’s looking right at me in the crowd, unsure if it was deliberate but we had a moment. I shrugged back, couldn’t think what else to do.
If you don’t watch Raw every week, Corey & Cole have been prodding Booker T during every Jason Jordan match mostly because there’s not much to talk about him other than his deadbeat dad Kurt Angle. So they get bored and turn on Booker who has been doing his best to fill in the blanks. The clip in this video is the best bit by far, with Booker’s exasperated YOU’VE NEVER BEEN IN THE RING.
The Mr. Perfect clip is from the WWE Unreleased DVD set so I don’t know who the announcer is.
Couldn’t think of a good enough intro lever pull for the CZW section, so I skipped it. Sorry folks.
First time a Rock HONK HONK video has been in the endings for a while, mostly because the ones I was getting sent were either BAD or EAR-RAPE BAD. This one is slightly better than most but it’s definitely not returning to be a regular thing, some of these recurring jokes/memes have shelf-lives. Botchamania expired years ago but no-one noticed.
List Of Companies And Where To Find Them…
WWE Network is still there and you can watch Story Time because it’s great
PROGRESS’ On Demand Pivotshare is a lot more secure than their ropes, which break easier than dry spaghetti. Chapter 55 had that one bad moment plus Riddle vs. Thatcher vs. WALTER in my current favourite PROG match of the year
