  1. They need a Kayfabe University. I'd like to see proof of Tom Pritchard's Doctorate of Desire or Seth Rollins' architecture degree.
  2. Nope. Two different Jeff Farmers, actually. Edit: Whoops. 2damcrazey beat me to it, and somehow I missed it. Edit 2: Apparently the women's tournament this year is being called the Mae Young Classic. I guess they realized how much of a piece of garbage Moolah was, so they opted for Mae's namesake instead. Now, let's just hope the trophy isn't a hand. Edit 3: Today's the day Owen Hart died. May 23rd will always stand out to me specifically for this reason.
  3. It seems like some of the ones that do work today involve [Nationality] + [noun]. Surprisingly, this formula wasn't used for "Gentleman" Jack Gallagher, which is an awesome name. "Scottish Supernova" "Bulgarian Brute" "Swiss Superman" "Celtic Warrior" "Ravishing Russian" Also, maybe don't call the guy who's always injured "Mr. No Days Off".
  4. Disagree. He's a Kingslayer. He's an Architect. He's The Man (wait, was he?). He's a Plan B. He's a Freakin'. He's a Rebuild, Redesign...uhh...Re...claim? I'm all for nicknames, but it was better when they were actually part of the guy's name. Greg "The Hammer" Valentine and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan are awesome. Roman Reigns, but sometimes we'll call him "The Big Dog" is not. Using Austin as an example, I feel like most, if not all, of today's nicknames are on par with the short-lived "Bionic Redneck" than they are to "Stone Cold".
  5. Kinda-sorta off topic, but I recently picked up a pair of the Stance On-Field socks for softball, and I have to say, they're really nice. The past few years, I've worn the TCK socks...the same as the stripey ones Andrew McCutchen and the like wore, but mine kept falling down when I ran after a few years of use. I couldn't find the same style in my size, so I ended up buying the Stance striped mother's day socks (my team wears pink), and they're significantly more comfortable than the ones I used to wear.
  6. Unfortunately, one of them is probably for the world title.
  7. I'm obviously in the minority here, but I'm rooting for Jinder. "This wasn't our moment. This is my moment." Good stuff.
  8. DIY was fantastic, but heel Ciampa is what made me a fan of his a few years ago. This is going to be awesome.
  9. Definitely. I know eventually D.I.Y. has to split up, but I don't see that as a show closing moment, honestly. Maybe that match is just going to be nuts.
  10. They should keep that title on Dunne for at least until next Wrestlemania, if not longer.
  11. It's Nigel McGuinness, for what it's worth. He's a solid commentator, but, yeah, having two play-by-play guys is taking away from having JR there. Side note: Nigel and Cole were great together at the UK Tournament. Other side note, speaking of Cole: I really hope that other guy named Cole is there tonight. Edit: Good lord. That UK title match was incredible.
  12. I'd prefer he stays on Raw, and we get the tag team we've all been clamoring for. Strowdust.
  13. I missed Raw last night, but I was shocked to find out that not only was Golden Truth on the show, but they have a storyline* now? *By storyline, I mean something that might last into next week, and, if it's lucky, "main events" the Mtn Dew Georgia Gold Snickers Milton Bradley Karate Fighters Pre-Show, Maggle
  14. I got a sweet Steak-umm drawstring backpack at work today. It's the little things.
  15. It usually takes a few weeks into every season, but football. I should know better, but I'm always optimistic about the Lions.
  16. With that video and the fact that a certain someone's ROH contract is expiring, I'm hoping someone's gonna be sitting in the front row of NXT Takeover next weekend.
  17. Getting Ingram certainly wouldn't hurt the Eagles. He ran for over 1,000 yards this past season, if I'm not mistaken. More of a power back but would compliment Sproles really well.
  18. I had to look up why you'd be hesitant to wear a Darryl Hamilton jersey....and now I know. How'd I miss that?
  19. Word on the street is Braun's out 1-2 months. Balls.
  20. MLB - I don't remember much other than I saw Nolan Ryan pitch at Memorial Stadium. I'd guess sometime around 1991-92. MiLB - My little league team went to a Reading Phillies game (I think against Harrisburg) in 1998. My neighbor pitched in that game. NHL - 2006 - Flyers vs. Devils NFL - 2010 - Eagles at Lions at Ford Field. It was the Lions home opener, and I left the game positive that Jahvid Best was going to be a superstar. NBA - Never been to one MLS - I'll be going to my first Philadelphia Union game next month. My only "pro" soccer game was a Hershey Wildcats game when I was a kid. AHL - 2004 - Hershey Bears - I don't remember who they played, but I had a partial season ticket plan during the lockout year. NCAA Football - 1994 - Penn State vs. Rutgers at Beaver Stadium NCAA Hockey - I went to the Frozen Four in Detroit (Ford Field) in 2010. The first game was Wisconsin vs. RIT.
  21. Elbow pads, taped fists, no shirt and dress slacks. Wrestler street fight attire should be a trend.
  22. I also feel like Fall Brawl should be a ppv again, mostly because War Games, but also because it's better than...uhh....Hell in a Cell? I have no idea what event is in September.
  23. Columbus doesn't make much sense, but Minnesota's wrestling history and new Vikings' stadium seem to be a decent fit. Indianapolis hosted Wrestlemania 8 and also has a large, domed stadium, so I guess there's some sense there.
  24. The important question: did you have a Natty Boh with it? I just purchased some O's tickets for this season...I might have to give the crabcakes a whirl.
  25. As someone who is surrounded by Eagles fans and generally dislikes said franchise, I thoroughly enjoyed Drew Pearson's trolling. Absolutely fantastic.
