  1. Santino Morella needs to be a manager. Let him get heat by running his mouth and then have him hide behind a Mike Knox, or a Charlie Hass.

     

    From a quick scan, this stands out as true (sans spelling mistake). Santino is wasted in comedy crap as a wrestler when he could be drawing big heat for a proper wrestler...or wrestlers..."Santino's Stable" would be great.


  2. Why not bring WCW back for Wednesday Night Nitro!

    Well, because it'd be a stupid idea, obviously. But it'd be an entertaining disaster.

     

    If they wanted to do something slightly different, they could have a show featuring developmental workers who are all fighting to get a shot on one of the main shows. Call it WWE Academy, or something.


  3. I'm puzzled also as to why Facebook feels the need to create groups to attack our newspapers.

     

    I was going to become a fan of the the 'Daily Mail' but unfortunately, it's littered with groups such as 'FUCK THE DAILY MAIL' and 'THE DAILY MAIL LOSES LOL'.

     

    I hate this Country sometimes.

     

    Why on earth would you become a fan of the Daily Mail? Its the paper that tells lazy right wing people who and what to hate and fear. That's its entire function. It contains less proper journalism that the side of a can of soup.


  4. I quite like the idea of Punk losing the MITB shot and turning heel...but I don't have faith in WWE letting him have an interesting heel character. If they let him do his straight edge "I'm better than you" routine and not make him into a typical chickenshit heel it could be really good. But I'd fully expect to see him needing to cheat to beat Super Crazy, or something.

     

    Edit - and I just realised they probably won't do the straight edge heel character because of the new child friendly direction. Be hard to tell the kids to boo this man because he doesn't do drugs! So generic heel Punk it would be.


  5. Hard to argue with anything Cornette says. The "but he works for TNA!" argument is irrelevant. At worse it makes him a hypocrite, presuming he's involved with the nonsense that goes on there, it doesn't make him wrong.

     

    If stars of the past like Dick Murdoch, the Sheik, Abdullah the Butcher, or even Dusty Rhodes, were to come along today, they couldn't even get jobs in developmental because they don't fit the cookie-cutter mold of what "stars" are supposed to look like. They would sound the same as everyone else because they wouldn't have the power to "go into business for themselves" and get themselves over with their unique personalities.

     

    This is the really sad thing. Look at a guy like Colt Cabana. Unlikely to have ever been a main eventer, but lots of charisma and potential, and he lasts less than a year (I think it was as little as that?), gets about 3 TV matches and some internet skits.


  6. Just got round to seeing the show...enjoyed seeing Steamboat in action again most of all. Snuka and Piper embarassed themselves in contrast.

     

    Taker-HBK was clearly match of the night and they put in a huge amount of effort...but I wasn't as impressed as some people seem to be. We've seen the "opponent kicks out of a bunch of Taker's finishers" routine before, and it was so obvious who was winning going into the match that it sucked any tension out of HBK's near falls.

    That said I'm probably only talking about giving it **** rather than ****1/2, or something.

     

    Can anyone explain why Kid Rock went on so long?


  7. London fucking sucks by the way. Its the most unenglish place in England, followed by Birmingham and Manchester.

     

    What makes other places more "English"? Less brown people?

     

    London has great places to go and awful places to go. Don't be put off by someone condemning a whole massive city as universally terrible. It is a very Northern thing to say London is shit.

     

    Yes its expensive, but so are a lot of major European cities. I had to spend far more in a weekend in Barcelona recently than I would have done visiting London.

     

    There's lots of history to see, and plenty of great museums, galleries and pubs (with perfectly drinkable non-warm beer) to visit.

     


  8. Liverpool definitely deserved the win today...as a neutral though, there's still something stopping me from wanting them to dethrone United.

     

    But speaking of diving, how about Gamst Pederson's effort today...comedy!


  9. Indeed, Lois and Clark have much more chemistry. For a "turn back the clock" episode, this was pretty good.

     

    The only thing I didn't like was how quickly everyone turned on Clark...a trashy gossip column writer slings some accusations and suddenly cops are trying to shoot him? I guess there wasn't time for a lengthy attack on his reputation, but it was a bit silly.


  10. Not to be all negative, but I saw the original version and hated it. Totally predictable and without any appealing characters. I really think the US should stop remaking UK stuff. You do fine coming up with great shows of your own, why the need to adapt our crap? I mean, both versions of The Office are great, and thats pretty much it.


  11. Well, its not quite about noble blood, but that's not far off. There's always been a big divide between the middle class and the working class in the UK.

     

    Jade Goody isn't particularly bright, interesting or appealing, but the fact that some people are actually taking pleasure in the fact she's dying is more distasteful than anything she ever did.

     

    (That's not referring to anyone in this thread, I have heard people opine that the sooner she's dead the better because of her being in the headlines all the time, being stupid, etc)


  12. Ever since then she's been in the papers and the news channels every other hour with an update. I don't overly blame Jade Goody for this, I blame Media Mincer Max Clifford, who's a scandalous twatbags. However, her constant media whoring - or should I say Max Clifford appearing releasing updates - is starting to get on my tits. You'd think she was the only person in the world with cancer. Fair play she wants to increase awareness about Cervical Cancer, and has done so to some degree, but the constant attention around her is distracting from the message.

     

    The thing is, it's not Jade's fault, and it's not Max Cliffords fault. If you're annoyed by all this then blame all the people who buy the gossip mags and watch Big Brother who create "celebrities" like her in the first place. There's no point getting cross at individuals who exploit this, if it wasn't Clifford it'd be someone else.

     

     


  13. I really hope there's no curse. For some reason I can accept time travel, smoke monsters etc etc but an ancient egyptian curse would be a step too far for me.

     

    I really feel sorry for Juliette...not that I care about her character that much, but getting involved with 2 different guys who are both more into Kate than her? Ouch.


  14. I think there should probably be a law against calling your kids anything too stupid.

     

    There is in New Zealand.

     

    Allowed: Violence; Number 16 Bus Shelter; Midnight Chardonnay; Benson and Hedges (twins)

    Blocked: Yeah Detroit; Stallion; Twisty Poi; Keenan Got Lucy; Sex Fruit; Fat Boy; Cinderella Beauty Blossom; Fish and Chips (twins)

     

    Fat Boy :lol:

     


  15. The fourth season really needs to have something different to it. There's too much time travel/seeing the future and then wandering around vaguely trying to prevent something from happening. How about some more action, some battles? They hardly ever use their powers to do anything exciting.
