MITB was interesting . Short as well which was nice .
The Undertaker/Mark Callaway documentary started last night too. Been looking forward to seeing it since I heard about it. He allowed the cameras to follow him around for basically 3 years and as well as highlights and the story of his career from a WWE standpoint, he speaks "out of character" through most of it and we get to see the man behind the legend. Its a 4 parter as far as I know, part one available on the network and the usual other sites.
It’s getting excellent reviews . I’ll wait till it all up on the network and binge watch it in one go. I prefer that instead of having to wait a week for the next episode.
Yeah I know what you mean, but since its an hour per episode I'll watch it at snails pace. If its as good as the reviews are saying, a binge watch when all episodes are out is probably on the cards regardless
Undertaker documentary has been brilliant so far. He’s really is the GOAT.
You get the feeling he’s addicted to it and can’t walk away.
I’d love to see him have one last run as The American badass. 1 or 2 more documentaries & I think he’s contracted for a couple of the Saudi shows.
It would also be cool to see him lead a ministry again when he finishes & give some of the younger guys a push in that type of faction.
Or some sort of faction that he can lead to give some guys a push. He’s always wanted to help get guys over so that could be his parting gift to the industry.
Does anyone watch much of New Japan?
Nice deal here. Free for people.
See the whole "Thunderdome" idea hit a few hiccups for WWE.
For those unfamiliar - theyve basically surrounded the arena with (they claim) 3000 LED monitors, which fans can live stream their "presence" to for the live events.
Seemed like a good idea right?
Until some dope dressed up in KKK gear for his stream, and was in the "front row"
Another guy had a cardboard cutout of Chris Benoit in attendance (again for the unfamiliar - Benoit is about as persona non grata as it gets in WWE or anywhere for that matter after the double murder and suicide of his family)
Another monitor seems to show a beheading - staged or not is unclear
And Super Mario - why exactly he is offensive I dont know, but hes mentioned too.
Bet as we speak they have the IT dept, cutting together "3000" loops to play on each monitor next week because after the "press" these muppets got theres sure as shit going to be wanna be media whores on every screen next week doing GOD knows what, but you can be sure the majority of it wont be either PC or PG13
I seen one at Summerslam on Sunday saying Baley is going to be raped “ didn’t say by who. But I was kinda shocked it was shown on the screen.
I actually seen the Klu Klux Clan one live and was thinking what the hell is going on there.
It’s a great idea, and it’s better than looking at a empty stadium, but there is a few hiccups and also the crowd reactions are behind the the live actions by a few minutes.
I thought SummerSlam was brilliant.
Best PPV in the last while
RIP Road Warrior Animal dead at 60.
He and Hawk were my introduction to wrestling really. Back ahem a few years ago when I was in ANCO in waterford staying in digs, used to arrive down late Sunday night and in the wee hours AWA was on Supersport (maybe Screensport?) and you got to watch them knock the holy bejesus out of two unfortunates.
Gordon Solie was the commentator and always remember his pronunciation of the word suplex - for some reason he always Frenched it up and it became "Sooplaaa"
Interesting to see how Taker signs off tonight at Suviver Series.
It theres no crowd for him
He is done a second session with Stone Cold on the broken skull podcasts too so that should be good.
The Network had a show up called “The Mortician “ about Paul Bearer. It’s about a hour long but it’s bloody brilliant if you haven’t seen it.
I've watched "The last ride" all week on BT. Was very good
