@fallen189: I would say give Casshern: Sins a try. A fascinating take on the robot/a.i. apocalypse with some great looking visuals. Pretty awesome musical score as well. It's one of my personal favorites of the past few years.

I want Fast Lane to be just a bunch of wrestlers in a street race. Just turn it into the Cannonball Run of wrestling pay per views. If they want they could start production of a Crush Hour 2 phone game to cross promote.

@defaultprophet: Shhhhhhh. Chikara is on and it's already better than that single match in a bad pay per view. Well maybe not on the stable streaming side of things. I'll take Mr. Touchdown over Brock Lesnar any day of the week. Welcome everyone to Monday Night Chikara.

For the people creaming the pants over that triple threat I'm perfectly fine explaining how it wasn't a flawless marble statue of a match. Not saying it was a bad match but I would not call it a five star showing. I don't plan on rewatching it so for all I know this stuff wasn't a big deal..

-Seth's big phoenix splash spot was more of a phoenix face plant into Cena's abs

-The barricade spot looked like shit. Brock wanders over, stands around, gets tackled through the barrier by Cena. Boring.

-Brock Lesnar a dude who is getting a huge pay check as part time talent was given like a ten minute break after his big table spot in one of the only matches he has to wrestle this year. Maybe he was really hurt but it's yet another thing to make the rest of the roster look like shit.

-More German Suplexes. I was sick of them at Summerslam and that has not changed. Unless he's dedicating each one to Chris Benoit it's a waste of a wrestling move.

Phoenix Splash - Come on that's looking for something to complain about

Barricade - Brock had just taken 3 AAs and a curb stomp. It makes sense he was groggy and out on his feet.

Lesnar out of the match - Oh come on

Germans - I'm giving you side eyes

i love Seth Rollins but you can't fuck up a spot like that when you have a guy like Ibushi out there who can nail that move flawlessly.

He also no sold a bunch of briefcase shots. Was the oxygen outside of the ring thinner or something?

i hope they let whoever their next top guy is take ten minute breaks during title defenses.

Boooooooring.

On the bright side of things the PWG show next month is booked and looking pretty entertaining despite them not having a lot of their top guys available. No Adam Cole, Red Dragon, Candice LeRae. Hell there are a couple of mid card guys I'll be sad not to see there like ACH and Rich Swan. I really wanted to see Young Bucks vs Brian Cage and Uhaa Nation but it looks like Uhaa's NXT deal came through. At least I can always count on the booking there to be reliable when it comes to a fun wrestling show. They're premiering a few CZW guys who I'm not familiar with so that should be interesting. A lot of great singles matches are set but I always come to PWG for the awesome tag team wrestling so having two tag matches, both with newish guys makes me anxious to say the least. No one's doing tag teams as well as that promotion other than Chikara maybe.

Brass Ring Club is reeeeeeal! I wonder what Chris Hero thought about the giant swing/ drop kick combo spot that Cesaro did with Tyson Kidd. Clearly an homage to the Kings of Wrestling.

So is Jared Rea the unofficial Wizard Champion for very specifically predicting Kofi's crowdsurfing spot?

Nah fuck that shit because I predicted the same thing in a room full of people who will corroborate. Only proof I have is agreeing with Jared in the comments of the Powerbombcast before the Rumble started. I would have posted it here days in advance if we were doing Krazy predictions instead of this LoC nonsense.

Anyone who cares about Daniel Bryan's long term health should not want him anywhere near Brock Lesnar. Look at what the guy did to Rollins on multiple German suplexes last night. I could easily see Bryan landing on his neck.

Yeah I'm kind of with you there. And I wasn't necessarily rooting for Daniel Bryan either but I do think he was one of the more believable prospects for a winner who got short shrift. Seth landed on his side a few times which is one reason why I probably didn't like the title match as much as other people. Rollins is too good to be subjecting to bumps like that and Brock Lesnar is a legit dangerous performer to book with one of your actual best full time wrestlers on the active roster.

I'm trying to squeeze any sort of positivity out of that Rumble match. I think the only thing I enjoyed was hearing pops for the REAL fan favorites in the roster: D-Bry (obviously), Ziggler, Ambrose, Mizdow, Cesaro (fuck yes). And I'm consistently entertained by Miz's ability to draw heat. When I think about who Miz has tagged with in previous years I realize he's the master of getting dudes he's partners with way over even though they typically get stamped out immediately. Just look at R-Truth and John Morrison. JR has said this but the Miz could be the next great manager when you think about how integral he has been to making Sandow a star.
