The Only Place to Be in Your Pop Culture World
We are strutting into the weekend so join us today and talk about whatever’s on your mind. TONIGHT our live watch will be Fully Loaded 2000.
Fresh audio from PTBN:
What’s the good word everyone? Baseball is back tonight!
Braves to make a second half surge!
They going to keep Adams or flip him?
I think keep him, since they went through having Freddie play third. I think they will trade Brandon Phillips.
Ozzie Albies is slated to be called up from Gwinnett I’ve heard.
Ozzie will be getting the call up sooner rather than later. Also, Acuna has absolutely been shredding and I hope the momentum continues with his promotion to Gwinett.
Are Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins still employed by the Mets? I refuse to buy any apparel or watch any games until both are gone. I’ll never forgive them for Game 5 of the ’15 World Series. NEVER!
Best and youngest pitching staff in history, possibly more potential than the 1991 Braves staff and cant keep one pitcher healthy. They all want to leave because the organization is so toxic.
This God-forsaken organization is fragile at best and it needs some harsh reality and whipping into shape. These two glad-handing, gutless, “yes” men need a pickslip and directions to the soup kitchen.
Officially love my Roku stick…deleted all the streaming apps on my PS4 so I can use it for just gaming now and save up on power use.
And other than some weird issue with Summerslam 93, Network runs super smooth on Roku. Very pleased.
Yeah it is a great device and I very rarely ever have any issues with it.
Both the Roku and Amazon Fire TV work flawlessly with the Network (and pretty much all apps)
Amazon fire even has a NJPW World app now – the only service (outside of an app for chromecast)
What’s the issue with Summerslam 93?
Throw me in on the Roku love, I have two full devices and got my Mom on board, she has three Express sticks on her TVs.
Red sox DFA Pablo Sandoval. Talk about the worst signing in the history of baseball
Yes the sox, dont seem to hit on the big free agency deals. Carl Crawford was a bad one too.
Brutal, what a waste. Good idea to cut their losses though, why bother carrying his fat ass around. He will be back in SF.
The worst signing in Red Sox history.
Tonight’s the CMLL Universal Championship tournament final! It’s a set of two King of the Ring tournaments in two weeks between all recognized title holders in the company. On the third week (tonight), the 2 bracket winners face off in the final. The match is usually really awesome. The show is broadcast live on clarosports.com every Friday night for free.
In case anyone is interested in catching up, or wants brief intros to the competitors,
Here is the first 8 man block:
And here’s the 2nd block:
The anti-RJ Brewer. Brillant.
Watching the 8/29/77 MSG House Show on the Network, and there’s a rare Verne Gagne MSG match on here!
Sigh. Tommy John for Pineda.
Bird out also now (for good) – come get Tommy Joseph and Neshak.
They are gonna give Garrett Cooper a spin first it seems.
“Cashman said surgery still possible for Greg Bird. If Bird has surgery, could take as long as 8 weeks to get back, Cashman said.”
Looks like you need Teheren
Game I thought of yesterday.
Pick 5 opponents for Undertaker to feud with at WM 25 through 29. All feuds will be unique and unseen (so if you pick HBK, you’re not getting the WM25 & 26 feud, you get something new). All feuds will have roughly the same level of overall quality of feud/match that Taker-Batista had, regardless of your choices. You can pick people to jump from other promotions to be one of your choices.
What five guys do you select for those spots?
Nice, I am thinking this one over…
I’ve got Jericho, Lashley, Cena, Joe & Punk as my 5. In that order.
25 – Michaels still makes the most sense
26 – Chris Jericho, Title
27 – John Cena, Streak v. Title, sets up Rock/Cena the next year
28 – CM Punk, Title
29 – Sheamus
HBK – still have to pay off the 07 & 08 Rumbles
2010 Big Show
2013 Rocky II
Ive got a question harder than that one. Outside of Andre, Piper and Bundy, who would you book with Hogan at WM2? I’ve got Bruno in a pseudo heel role.
If we keep Hogan/Bundy I really like the Savage/Bruno idea I tossed out on the pod.
My only issue with Hogan/Savage is that big of a stage changes the dynamic of their WM4 and 5 story.
True but if you are in the moment at the time it was red hot and is probably the next best option.
Terry Funk is my choice.
Yeah that is a good one too.
When we did the WM Rebook project I posited a Mr. T heel turn.
Taya vs. Jeremiah Crane from this week’s Lucha Underground is a really good, brutal-feeling match. Crane’s been having those surprisingly often lately.
Talking Smack now only being done after the Smackdown only PPVs.
They should find away to integrate the interviews into Smackdown proper.
Boo that sucks.
eh so be it i guess. At least it’s being kept after the SD PPVs.
Guessing they wanted to mirror the Raw version , which is PPV only to keep things streamlined (plus no one watched it).
Talking Smack airing after 205 Live vs right after Smackdown hurt as well.
Ioan’s preview for the G1 Climax 27 is live:
Starting this fall, adults in Texas can openly carry knives with blades longer than 5.5 inches.
Who brings a knife to a gun fight in Texas? .45 ACP is much sharper than a knife.
Halfway through For Your Consideration #4 (which is great) … Johnny mentions that in 98 they were doing a losing streak gimmick with Faarooq that was going to end with Jackyl managing him and Vader to turn their luck around. Is that true? I know Faarooq and Bradshaw end up as Jackyl’s Acolytes late in the year but never heard that other angle idea. Pretty interesting.
On a NWA/WCW stroll through time, currently up to Starrcade ’88. Huge pop for Rick Steiner when he won the TV Title against Rotunda. Probably the biggest pop so far in the NWA from 1985-on.
“War for the Planet of the Apes” is the best film in this current series. And “Spiderman: Homecoming” was a lot of fun.
Now looking forward to “Dunkirk” and “Atomic Blonde”.
When is the Live Watch for Fully Loaded 2000 tonight?
Dude Love debuted 20 years ago today.
