LOL, what the hell does “He fell awkwardly on what could be his left leg” mean? Either it was his left leg or it wasn’t.
It could be his left leg…or it could be a useless hunk of meat connected to his flesh prison by fraying, decaying tendons. Team doctors aren’t sure.
Rollins dropped the first screenshot for 2K18 on his Twitter.
In the words of Borat, very niiice.
20 years ago today is Summerslam 1997. Gonna fire it up tonight.
What’s up everyone? I’m headed to the monster factory on Saturday and chilling on Sunday
At a work volunteer event today and have a wedding tomorrow.
Awesome I’m at my grandmother’s house rn
*Heyman reportedly pushing hard for Joe to win the Universal title at SS.
*Talk of having Enzo go to either 205 or NXT.
*Tickets for Summerslam and Takeover haven’t sold out yet with takeover tickets being noticeably slower to sell compared to two years ago.
I live in Brooklyn about a 15-20 minute drive away from Barclays and I still don’t think it’s worth going to Summerslam.
I went 2 years ago and it wasn’t bad, but last year with the crowd being all annoying shitting over the Universal title the whole match was ridiculous.
NXT, on the other hand, I would do if not for scheduling.
It’s amazing how their 1 hour show a week sells their PPV way better than a bloated 3-hour RAW does.
Both i think will sellout by the time it gets closer. Last year was annoying with the booing of the Universal Title but it didn’t ruin the whole Show.
General interest in the product seems lower then it was compared to last year. A lot of that is on them since they’ve basically been spinning the wheels since Mania with all the muti man tags and such. Plus the superstar shakeup really fucked up SD and it’s been diminished ever since.
I agree with everything except the last sentence.
SD was damn good this past week and is usually way easier to sit through than RAW 9 times out of 10.
SD has been awesome the last two weeks. Probably the best back-to-back SD shows of the year.
Not sure about diminished. I think SD uses everyone as best they can and the last two weeks since Battleground have been really good.
That’s just straight-up farm wisdom.
8/2 Watch List:

Wow Bulldogs v R&R Express!
Punk’s try out match.

Sounds like an Angle collection is dropping Monday too.
This is a few months old, but interesting discussion from Lance Storm, Cyrus and Kevin Kelly. Not just about Shibata’s style, but Lance even bringing up Misawa/Kawada and concerns he had back in the ’90s. Worth a listen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEYyqgHqjU4
Sounds like an Angle collection will drop on Monday too.
Anyone watching the Hall of Fame game tonight?
I’ll prob pop it on for a few. What channel?
Observer saying Miz/Jordan IC match for SS has been scrapped…Jordan hasn’t gotten over the way the company wanted him to.
In two weeks?
Absurd… nobody gives shit time, the company or the fans.
It was a terrible idea that only had a chance to work if it was absurd but they put in a guy whose void of charisma. The company put him in a position to fail.
Wish i could like this twice.
They wrote the drek he has to wallow in!
He’s heating up
House shows from Boston Garden on 3/8/86 and 12/17/88 from LA have been added to the Network.
Also, 8/13/88 from LA and 8/9/86 from Boston.
What channel were the LA shows on? Obviously Boston garden was nesn, spectrum were on prism, msg on msg I just wasn’t sure if the LA shows were on a local LA channel or just taped for prime time and coliseum videos.
Z Channel and SportsChannel LA
Yeah just looked at grahams site, didn’t know Tom Zenk had his own channel
8/9/86 has a really good Tito/Orton match.
That 12/88 LA show may be the one with the awesome Santana vs Valentine match
Looks like it is. Also has Hogan/ Bossman as the main.
Yeah I reviewed that show on the message board back in the day… fun one, especially Hammer/Tito.
March ’86 has the Crush Girls and a Bret/Steamboat match
The Bret/Steamboat match is really good.
Awesome that ’86 in Boston is completely covered. They must have skipped July because that dumpy crackhouse of an arena didn’t have air conditioning.
Jerry Jones has a bowl cut, but only on one side of his head. Your argument is invalid.
Wednesday Walk header?

Anybody else enjoying this Indians game as much as I am?
Too bad. It was entertaining.
The brawl Mongo and Kama have on Raw is pretty great.
