The Only Place to Be in Your Pop Culture World
Cool off on a hot summer day and relax with our daily discussion thread AND some hot new audio on the PTBN feeds:
Busy day at work today. Would love any thoughts on JLW #4 once you have them!
Only 11 min in but dying at the “do you see old guys jump on stone walls often?”
Hey – there’s a new Seinfeld for you to check out also. Please leave any comments here -as those pieces were created long before disqus and don’t allow comments.
Meltzer reporting Enzo has big backstage heat on him for something he did on the talent bus a few weeks back that apparently was so bad, Roman Reigns had him kicked off the bus. It’s a reason why the Enzo and Cass split happened bc the storyline started on TV soon after the incident took place.
Wow. Early Miz treatment.
Sounds like this may be BS.
New Go Home in a Box! Talking about movies that either copied or were inspired by Mad Max and Escape from New York.
Chris – are you on Twitter? I’ll tag you when i share around if so.
Thank you, Brad.
Follow me, Nation! New retro movie review every week.
Umaga was pretty great.
Does he make your GWWE?
He should have a legitimate argument for it.
You should make the legitimate argument and I’ll run it here!
Do we’ve have an official form for this? I completely forgot how to submit it lol.
My Top 10 is set in stone, but I need to parse the rest.
No, no – not yet. We haven’t released directions yet (look for closer to end of year).
Agreed, he was awesome
Brand Split War V.2
Week 51 Winner: RAW
Smackdown 26 RAW 25
MOTW: Seth Rollins vs Bray Wyatt
i’m checking out CWF’s Absolute Justice today. Full show is online. Really recommend our buddy John Philapavage’s 35 minute preview video he made around the main event.
Steep price for Quintana, but he’s under contract for three years. He hasn’t had a good year either. good for the Sox.
He’s had a couple outstanding starts this year and some stinkers, too. And Wrigley is a bit harder to play at this time of year than Comiskey.
Holy crap. A big-time trade between the Cubs and Sox.
Sox are desperately trying to rebuild, and they’re starting to get a solid minor league system going after being at the bottom for so long.
They had all the advantages in this deal since they’re really weren’t many starters available.
Jimenez #5 prospect overall. Happ made him expendable. They would love to see Schwarber get it together to raise his value as he is destined for the AL as a perfect DH
Just caught up with NXT this week, glad to see Bobby Fish make his debut. I hear his partner from ROH is not far behind.
Yeah, adds some nice depth back to NXT, Seems like they are back on track after a dip early in the year.
I think the NXT Roster has reloaded pretty nicely after some were called up in the past year or so.
A friend of McGinn’s that sat with us at the wedding told me about this concept album… every song is wrestling themed:
Some of this shit is haunting, especially the Bruiser Brody one.
I listened to it every day for a month for my gym music. Foreign Object is my jam
Jersey Shore reunion show set for August.
Can’t wait… we already have a pod planned.
I want in on this!
Cabs are confirmed as heah
Did anybody work harder than Bobby Walker?
He did work pretty hard.
For that matter, was there ever a harder body than Harrison?
Was anyone more of a pitbull than Sgt. Craig Pittman?
I like to think that BLOOD ICE persists forever somewhere in the id of PTBN.
Watching NXT, caught the video game ad again and paid more attention this time. Did Seth Rollins straight-up murder that security guard by leaving him in a burning building, or will the guard live on in a future iteration of the ad campaign?
Bobby Fish looks like Gargano’s weird brother.
Add another injury to Seth’s list!
Yes! The man is a menace.
In a related note, I hear Jameson’s offering a reward for photos of Seth Rollins.
Liking the size dynamic in the tag title match–ie there’s just a bunch of beefy beefy boys. Otis is too beefy for Rezar to knock over! Simple yet effective.
These guys are working hard but not a single person buys any of the nearfalls. Sad.
Fake falls. Sad.
(On a serious note, I haven’t watched NXT lately due to time constraints, but it sure seems like Full Sail has gone downhill. Thoughts?)
Full Sail has gotten a little Impact Zoney, except it has people. (Hiyo.) I haven’t noticed it quite as much in the last couple of months–if they’re still Too-Sweeting themselves for every two count I’ve tuned it out–but it was pretty bad earlier this year.
Man, that is the most annoying chant right now.
Who started that 1-2-Sweet shit anyway?
This is a good year to jump in. They finally allow 8 wrestlers on screen since they ditched last gen hardware
Who’s pumped for the new NIN EP? The first song is a bit of a return to form compared to Not the Actual Events.
I do like this new format for the chats. Seems less chaotic than the previous way we did this.
It’s all about Hair Nation Baby!!!!!!
“War for the Planet of the Apes” is the best of the new series and second only to the original. A powerful, menacing performance from Woody Harrelson and the effects work blows my mind again. These three “Apes” films have by far the best intergrated visual effects of any films in the last 15 years.
FanDuel terminated the Draft Kings merger
I’m really not sure what it’s going to be, which is a good thing nowadays. The rumors about something with Stephanie setting up a triple h summerslam match make sense but it could be something totally different.
What do you think of X games?
I remember the very first one because it was in Providence and was a huge deal locally.
Went to xgames in 96 down in Newport, got about 50 free packs of cinnaburst, mintaburst, and the brand new fruitaburst gum.
Not sure if any of you watch Beat Shazam on Fox but my cousin and her husband are on the episode on right now
I would not watch this show if not for my cousin. Kind of obnoxious.
I tried it but it was so bad.
Still can’t believe Tony Gonzalez’s wife is named October.
Remember those two sweet survivor series sets that didn’t sell? Finally get a follow up
Finally finishing up on daredevil season 2. Then Luke cage and Iron fist before the defenders.
How was that? I put it off and put it off until Luke Cage came out and I decided to go ahead and watch that.
Almost done. Two episodes left haha. I am enjoying it though.
I found it a little uneven. The Punisher stuff, yes please. Some of the …other, not so much. May give it a rewatch before Defenders.
Luke Cage kinda fell apart in the back half. I couldn’t make it through Iron Fist. All of these shows would be better served by 10-episode seasons.
Onto Shameless S4 E4… Fiona getting naughty…
A lot of naughty Fiona in that show but I looked up what episode that was and yeah she’s pretty frisky on that train.
Has anyone else seen Tour de Pharmacy on HBO? I can’t recommend this enough.
Free G1 finals on NJPW World. Ioan’s preview will be up soon.
Did we decide on the live watch for tomorrow? Fully loaded 2000 works for me wasn’t sure what else was suggested.
Ya Fully Loaded 2000 it is.
Nice! Always dug that show. Will be in and out as I continue fucking up Watchmen with the comics staff.
New Letters From Center Stage!
Ronda Rousey is at the Mae Young Classic.
This Red Sox special on MLB Network is pretty good.
I assume Yaz is in his late 70’s but he looks better than I thought.
Huh, watching the 3/12/90 Prime Time Wrestling show and Hercules & Roma are teaming together with matching attire as babyfaces against Brawler & Black Bart.
Wow random, must have been a test run.
Seems like it. The crowd is digging them too.
They used the Rocket Launcher for their finisher here.
Glad they upgraded to the PowerPlex
Yeah, the Power Plex was a great finisher. Surprised no one has ripped that off today.
