@shonenjump86 What did you think of Balls bro? I only saw Joe vs. Brock. I didn't like what I saw. It was okay I just have a problem with the end. They need to take the belt off Brock. No more part timer champions!

@Fooligan I thought the ppv was just ok. I had a feeling Joe wasn't going to win. I say Brock will hold the belt till SummerSlam. But I hear ya on the part timer champions.

Battleground was this past Sunday. The New Day became the new Smackdown Tag Team Champions. I would have written this earlier, but my phone was acting screwy about giving me address for this picture.

Do any of you guys watch Xavier Woods (pictured above with his trombone, Francesca 2) YouTube channel UpUpDwnDwn? He plays video games with other WWE superstars. I thought I'd bring it up since we are on a video game site on a wrestling thread.

I've watched some of UpUpDownDown, and it's always enjoyable. It's just great seeing the wrestlers out-of-character and having a good time rather than being forced to read scripted lines fed to them by the mediocre WWE "writing team".

Meanwhile, after having watched him for years in New Japan, it's kind of depressing to see how lackluster the fed has been handling Nakamura. Sure, he's getting a push and is towards the top of the card which is as it should be, but he's been so neutered to fit in with the generic WWE style and booking.

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

R.I.P. Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. Truly one of the greats. Prayers go out to the family.

The greatest manager of all time, and one of the best color men in the business ever. R.I.P.

i was going to try out for the wwf back in my younger days.
i was going to be a two man team like demolition but instead of two people i was strong enough to play both roles of two men by myself.
my costume was solid clear.
they didnt like my idea thus i was not recruited.
im not convinced no one wanted to wrestle me due to my costume design.
that was used as an excuse.
pretty sure they didnt want me to embarrass all the tag teams and beat them up all by myself.

I was pretty underwhelmed by Survivor Series. Could be my own fault as I had pretty decent expectations. It was my favorite of the big four shows last year, and it seemed poised to have some big moments this year; but it felt a little flat. I think my favorite match was the women’s traditional survivor match.

However, I thought Takeover War Games was superb top to bottom. Aleister Black is an absolute superstar, and Velveteen Dream could be as well. My least favorite match was the War Games match, but it was still pretty good. Tough match to pull off really. I’ve never been a big fan of the concept or execution in the past.

I’m real late to the game here, just thought to search for this thread, but I’d like to say that I think Heenan was one of the most important figures in the history of pro wrestling and the greatest at whatever he did.

One of my favorite wrestlers of all time passed today King Kong Bundy. I don't know why but I always preferred his and Hogan's WM2 match over Hogan and Andre's match at WM3. One of my favorite heels growing up.

My thoughts go out to his family. May he rest in peace.

So it appears that WWE had hired Eric Bischoff again. His new role with the company will be excutive director of Smackdown, while Paul Haymen will be the excutive director for Raw. These will be behind the scenes jobs basic they will be in charge with the storylines and such. I would say this is a good thing but with them having to report to Vinny Mac I feel like itnjust will be the same old stuff. I can't help but feel like this was a move by Vince to keep either of them talking with AEW.

I also find it funny that the got two of the biggest players in the Monday Night Wars running his shows now 😄

@Tasuki - I completely agree on that reasoning. They’ll probably give Bischoff a title and pay him to stay home. Maybe video conference him into the occasional creative meeting. The man should be on camera. So hatable. WWE needs a Dangerous Alliance or NWO so bad right now. I’m completely burned out on their product. I would drop the network if AEW figures out a way to stream their shows this fall, as much as I would miss NXT. I’m glad you resurrected this thread.

Edit - And RIP Bundy. Great match with Hogan at WM2. Great monster heel. He almost killed Haiti Kid.

It wont make a difference, they hired Pritchard back a few months ago and nothing changed. Both Heyman and Bischoff are products of 90s wrestling who ran their companies into the ground in the 00s. They need the modern day equivalents of promoters who have their finger on the pulse, basically they should have hired The Elite instead.

@jump - The problem is that they’re trying to have a finger on the pulse. Good wrestling and storylines now are the same as 20-30 years ago. The hippest promotions going right now are NXT and AEW, and both are old school pro rasslin. Wrestling is at its best when it’s at its simplest, it’s always been that way, and it always will be.

@bimmy-lee I believe AEWs shows will be streamed on the BR LIve app ( Bleacher Report). This Saturday they are going to be streaming Fyter Fest for free all you have to do is download the app.

@jump Agree. Funny thing is WWE had meetings with The Young Bucks a few months ago to get them to sign with WWE but as they said they wouldn't have the creative controll that other places like RoH, New Japan and such give them which is why they created AEW. Basically the Jacksonville Jaguars owner asked them if I give you the money do you really think you can run it.

@Tasuki - Thanks, yeah, I knew about the event this Saturday, but I didn’t know they had something worked out to stream the shows when they’re on Turner this fall. Seems weird to stream a cable show on the BR Live app, but I hope it happens.
