    King of the Ring: The Middle Years

    It was indeed 10. They ran an angle where Austin attacked Bret right as Raw went off the air and the next week Bret came out and said he was unable to compete at KOTR because of it. HBK got upset at Austin for taking away his match and Pillman, knowing that there was bad blood between HBK and Austin, offered to relinquish his match with Austin at KOTR in favor for HBK/Austin which both men agreed to.

    What Killed "SNICK" for You?

    The coolest/most random thing about Pete & Pete was Iggy Pop playing Ellen's father. I didn't realize this when I was younger when my older brother said "holy shit, it's Iggy Pop from The Stooges!".

    What Killed "SNICK" for You?

    Are You Afraid of the Dark? is one of my favorite shows ever. I remember watching it as a kid and being scared shitless (it was the last show to air on Snick that evening with a 9:30 timeslot) and thanks to Youtube, I've seen most of the episodes again recently and some hold up incredibly well. I remember Roundhouse but I also remember not understanding it well, I always just thought "Why are these people randomly singing and dancing all the time?". Clarissa wasn't bad but looking at old clips of it, it's aged pretty badly. Ren & Stimpy (the original cartoon, not that shitty remake they did for Spike TV a few years ago) is one of the best cartoons ever, the humor was so sublte. As for me, I stopped watching after they took Keenan and Kel off. I loved K&K and I was pissed when they gave "Action League Now!" it's own spin-off. The sketch was funny on Kablaam because it was like 3 minutes long. It certainly did not warrant it's own half hour show.

    WWE General Discussion - January 2009

    They had a lumberjack match on Raw the week before Survivor Series which Orton won after interference from William Regal. It's a shame that the Orton/Punk fued never really took off, it would have been huge.

    Aronofsky's "The Wrestler"

    Rourke getting involved with the WWE is pretty dumb and will definatley cost him the Oscar if he doesn't keep quiet about it. Doing a worked angle with the WWE cheapens the integrity of the movie and the role Rourke played. How is someone who helped depict the scummy world of pro wrestling actually going to embrace the very thing that was portrayed as life threatening? This is a foolish move on Rourke's part but hey, maybe the awards don't mean much to him. Jericho was actually pretty spot on with his comments Monday where he said "there's a big difference between playing a wrestling in a movie and actually being one."

    WWE The Music - Vol 9

    I actually like Maryse's music.
  9. Crash is way overrated. Alright movie with huge flaws (forced message, bad casting). I liked Brokeback Mountain better myself.

    Royal Rumble 2009

    The Rumble match made me realize one thing: Too many guys wear short black trunks.

    Jesus, so many guys in the ring right now with short black trunks. It's hard to tell who's who.

    Oscar Nominations Thread

    You know, Malcolm X has aged terribly in my opinion. It was amazing when I first saw it years ago but now I can barely sit through it. Scent of a Woman, along with Dog Day Afternoon, is my favorite Pacino performance. Way better than The Godfather and the very overrated Scarface.

    Oscar Nominations Thread

    I haven't seen "The Visitor" but it's weird to see two Oscar favorites like DiCaprio and Eastwood get snubbed for Richard Jenkins. I'm pretty sure Downey only got nominated because he's red hot at the moment being in two summer blockbusters and finally made a comeback to the A-list. Since they obviously couldn't nominate him for Iron Man, they figured Tropic Thunder was the next best thing. And yea, Springsteen being snubbed for best song is total bullshit.

    Tough Talk with TSM: David Flair

    I always had a soft spot for his Psycho gimmick with Daffney and Crowbar but yea, the guy absolutley sucked in the ring.

    Finish Him!

    Why is it Sweet Chin Music is more "deadly" than a regular Superkick, or Jake Roberts' DDT/Raven's Evenflow/Dreamer's DDT more effective than a regular DDT? This point can be made about any move that is used as a finisher. What if someone were to use a punch as a finisher?

    Victoria Retires

    I was a huge fan of Victoria in 2003 with her Psycho gimmick and with Stevie Richards as her sidekick. She was also very good looking in this era and I thoroughly enjoyed both her woman's title reigns. Past 2004 though, the company just gave up on her and turned her into a directionless jobber. Age was starting to catch up with her as well so it's good to see her bow out gracefully.

    No love for Chris Farley, Lushus?
  21. I've been wanting to discuss this on this board for awhile now. Randy Orton's terribly booked WWE face run from August 2004 to March 2005. A little backstory: Randy Orton gains steam as an upper mid-card heel fresh off the heels of his hot fued with Mick Foley. Foley puts him over and goes on to become the longest reigning intercontinental champion in years (at that time). Orton finally loses the title to Edge but is protected when he was knocked out by an exposed turnbuckle at the end of the match which was the deciding factor in Edge winning. The rematch wields a similar result as Edge (who was still a face at the time)cheated to win by putting his feet on the ropes retaining the title. Orton moves past the IC title and wins a battle royal on Raw to determine the #1 contender for the world title. After a memorable sequence at the end of the match between Orton and runner-up Chris Jericho, Orton wins the match and goes on to Summerslam. Orton walks into Summerslam and in a very surprising result, cleanly becomes the youngest world champion in WWE history at the age of 24. The next night after defeating Benoit in a rematch with some help of his cohorts, Evolution (Ric Flair, Batista, HHH), to retain his title, Evolution turns on Orton turning him face and sets up a program between Orton and Evolution. A month later at the Unforgiven PPV, HHH destroys Orton and takes back the world title which sets up another program which sees Orton try to go through the members of Evolution to get his hands on HHH and regain the world title. After a fine series of matches with Batista on Raw, Orton starts up a mini-fued with Ric Flair and defeats him in a cage match at the first ever Taboo Tuesday (which eventually became Cyber Sunday). Still pursuing HHH, Orton loses a rematch with Flair with help from HHH himself with a stipulation that if Orton lost then he would never receive anymore title shots as long as HHH is champion. Knowing the odds are against him, Orton recruits some of Raw's top stars in Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho and Maven (two out of three ain't bad) to battle a team captained by HHH at Survivor Series. Orton comes out of the match as the sole survivor of his team, last eliminating HHH. Orton, while not winning back the world title, finally exacted an amount of revenge on HHH. HHH loses the heavyweight championship in a wierd double pin/submission finish at the end of a triple threat match involving Benoit and Edge. Mr. McMahon then holds the title up and Eric Bischoff then makes an Elimination chamber match for the title at New Year's Revolution including HHH, Benoit, Jericho, Edge, Batista and since HHH is no longer the champ, Orton is allowed into the match. At around this time, Batista blows up and teases turning on HHH to go after the world championship himself and Orton after months of chasing starts to gradually lose his heat with the fans. During the chamber match, more seeds are planted for the future HHH/Batista program and Orton comes up short once again, being the last to be pinned by HHH who wins the match and the title. The next night, Bischoff then makes a #1 contender's match for HHH's title for the Royal Rumble pitting Orton against Batista. Due to a miscalculation, Orton pins Batista and sets to face HHH at the Rumble. With the original planned main event for Wrestlemania 21 happening at the Rumble, fans start to wonder what will actually happen at the biggest event of the year. Orton comes up short once again at the Rumble. Batista takes advantage, wins the Rumble match, turns on HHH and defeats him at Mania for the title all to much fanfare. Orton on the other hand, wallows in a pointless fued with Christian following the Rumble before turning heel again to set up his match with the Undertaker at Wrestlemania and the rest is history. ---------------- So, what do you all think of Orton's 6 month face run? Liked it? Hated it? Killed by bad booking? Is Orton just not cut out to be a "good guy"? Could WWE booking have stretched out the Orton/HHH program all the way to Wrestlemania? Me personally, I was very into Orton at this point and thought he was over nicely as a face at first before booking killed him and had to turn back heel.

    Attitude Era Timeline in your opinion?

    I guess I'm the only one here who thought the Attitude era ended the night of Survivor Series 2001. That was the first time where I felt like the state of WWE was changing and hasn't been the same since. With the acquisition of WCW officially dead and the separation of the brands a few months afterwards, the aftermath of that PPV was the first time watching wrestling felt differently to me. Even after Austin's turn at WMX7, I felt the attitude era was still in full effect with Russo-esque crap like stalker DDP.

    Let's Talk About: Hair Metal

    I like hair metal just as much as the next guy but a lot of it was really, REALLY ridiculous. I won't lie and say that I didn't enjoy a lot of bands from that era but shit like Poison, Warrant, Ratt, Whitesnake, Winger and Cinderella is what makes the genre overall garbage to music fans. Stuff like Motley Crue, Scorpions, Twisted Sister (yes, screw you), Def Leppard, and borderline bands that can or can't be considered hair metal like GNR and Skid Row (Bach era only), is what I enjoy.

    How I Met Your Mother

    I really liked last night's episode and really like where the Barney/Robing thing is going. Barney's character has really developed throughout the series from a heartless womanizer to a man falling in love for the first time.
