I forgot all about those cruiserweight people. Do they still show their matches occasionally on RAW? I usually 60x DVR speed my way through the shows now and maybe I just don't see them or something. I usually only stop to watch Rollins/Reigns or the lady matches these days.

Yeah he needs new music and ring attire for sure, hell I wish he'd cut his hair too but I know that's something he's not likely to do any time soon lol.
Not sure if this is true or not, but I remember hearing that he once wore black and white shoes. White being on the bottom. Supposedly, management put a stop to this. WWE has sort of become famous for being ultra controlling of main roster talent.

Yeah they got pissed at Rusev when he first cut his hair, something he had been needing to do since he debuted on the main roster. The guy looks way better with short hair, I don't know why they keep wanting their talent to have 80's metal band hair but they need to get over it lol.

Slammiversary was soooo f***ing good. Hot crowd, insane matches (Pentagon vs Sami f***ing delivered), and a class main event following two brutal hardcore matches.

Just turn off the network before the match? Either way the boos are going to be so loud at Barclay's that it'll almost be worth watching.

Just get the title off Brock please, let's move on. Reigns is a good wrestler and it'll be interesting to see where they go with this at least.

Its a couple years of Roman can't wrestle Reigns being pushed that led to this.

Rather the barely around Brock but it should be the more qualified Bobby.

I'll stop paying and watch it for free.

Really disagree that he can't wrestle, but okay. It's his character that sucks, the fact that he can't lose (Samoa Joe match for example if you want the worst of it), and the fact that Vince won't give up until he's over (and he never will be).

Bobby Lashley is alright, not great, but I was interested in seeing a match between him and Brock. His moveset isn't as varied though so it'd probably just be a match of suplexes against each other. Honestly wasn't interested in either of these options as I thought Seth Rollins is so on fire right now that he should get a chance. I mean hell he's like the only one who can consistently beat Roman anyway, keep that trope going.

Bobby moveset is better than Romans.
Before the boos i been pointing out how bad he is.. Every time they give it 2 him it shows how outa touch Vinny Mac is.

Brian Christopher's was tragic. Hung himself in jail after another DUI arrest. Didn't die at the scene, went to the hospital and was alive long enough for Jerry Lawler to say goodbye.

I haven't watched wrestling since WCW folded. But I've been watching videos of the old school guys talking about the business and all the dirt.

All the guys you thought would be dicks pretty much are or were.

Always loved Hakushi (Jinsei Shinzaki) that move at the :52 second mark is so much better than the crap suicide dives that Rollins and Ambrose do today.

The cruiserweights will continue to be wasted sadly until HHH takes over.... which is actually weird saying that.

Same will all the guys who have come from nxt sadly.

Was thinking about going to a New Japan event on September 30th that's only about 15-20 minutes from me but the cheapest tickets are $50 and they go up to $300, I'll stick with watching it on TV lol.

I've only been to a WWF event 1 time when I was a puppy back in 87 or 88 and it was like $6 per person. All I can remember was there being an IC match between Steamboat and Savage in a cage.

My first WWF event was way back in the mid 80's when Hogan was champion and he faced Terry Funk, also saw Steamboat vs Magnificent Muraco, Roddy Piper vs JYD, Adrian Adonis was there and got a coke thrown in his face so security made an entire aisle of people leave lol.

I remember another time going to the Anaheim convention center and seeing Hogan vs Bossman in a cage, a few of us went up to the guard rail after the show and Slick who was Bossman's manager at the time said "get those white boy MF'ers back" lol. Those events were when I was in middle school and high school.

I used to go to WWE events quite often, saw matches like Undertaker vs Yokozuna in a casket match, which was cool because that was the first live event I had been to where they actually upped the production values and had the lighting rig over the ring making it look like lightning flashing when taker was coming out. One thing that was really sad about that night is they had a Paul Bearer "look-alike" contest and this little kid who had to be under 10 came to the ring in the black suit and carrying an urn and once he started trying to talk like Paul everyone booed the s*** out of him, I'm sure the kid cried because he had a full arena basically telling him he sucked lol.

Later in my 20's I had a friend who worked at Jakks Pacific who made WWE action figures at the time and he got me comp tickets to the Pond in Anaheim every time WWE was there. One of those events was a RAW taping which was pretty cool, they were pretty bad seats that night and we were up in the top level, you could still feel the heat from Kane's pyro all the way up at the top of the arena.

I also went to a live WCW event at the LA forum, it was a "non televised Nitro" event so they brought the Monday Nitro stage and everything but the show wasn't televised.

I've been watching New Japan lately and I'm enjoying it, I like how the crowds don't try to hijack the show the way American crowds do these days and the performers really seem to go all in.

I don't even remember the faces to most of those people unless they were in the WWF where you're constantly reminded of them throughout the years. I can hear it in my head where that Slick guy would be saying that racist stuff... :laugh:

I wish I could've gone to more shows, but it's an 80 mile round trip to see anything. I could go now of course, but I don't like humans anymore. I only watched NJPW when AJ was on there, so idk much about that anymore.

I don't care what anyone says he is a great performer in the ring, for a brawler/power house kind of guy he's as good as anyone else in the WWE. Yeah he's a bit dry on the mic but that's the writers fault not his, they weren't letting him be himself. I hope he's able to beat it again and make it back to WWE at some point or at least lead a healthy life with his wife and kid.

As much as I wasn't a fan...I cant help but to feel for him.
Hopefully he beats this and this isn't a work....
