Why do I get the feeling that all this fantasy booking belongs in a comicvine battle thread? I shouldn't get points for guessing that Lex Luthor saves the world. It's definitely one part of the hobby I'll never understand.

I'll just state my straight up predictions of the stuff I care about. Bray is having Jericho fed to him because he deserves it. Wyatts get the tag belts. Cesaro gets Intercontinental belt. Either Ambrose or Rollins could win and I'd be fine with it. That's it... those are the only things that interest me. I'm expecting a bad show, that way I can be pleasantly surprised no matter what. But if I start talking Krazy™...

  • Bray Wyatt gnaws on Jericho's jacket and breaks his teeth on the bulbs.
  • Roman Reigns double chokeslams Kane and Orton through the canvas by channeling the Undertaker's power, then gets surprise pinned by Cena.
  • There won't be a proper match in the ring between Ambrose and Rollins. They're just going to start fighting and then the cameras cut in and out of their brawl backstage all throughout the show. When their match starts they fight their way out to the ring, both get thrown out immediately, double count-out and the fight continues for the rest of the PPV. Hardcore Title returns in the next RAW.

Well I watched that Impact show in New York. I remember when TNA first started and thinking that the six-sided ring was a cool idea. In retrospect it didn't seem worth changing to four sides just to accommodate Hogan, Bischoff, and the rest of those old school chuckleheads. Despite reverting the ring my opinion of TNA has not changed. I think they have some dudes that can do decent to good work in the ring but the creative side of things is totally bankrupt. There's just nothing interesting about the inner workings of that product. It sucks to think some of the good in-ring workers I'm familiar with are going nowhere prestige wise simply by staying with that company. I realize it's good to have competition in the market but man...

So hey that NXT is still pretty good. I would almost want it to be longer and more consistent if it wasn't such experimental territory. So much potential I don't want to see wasted in the main roster.

Time for my heel turn.

You asked for it. You suck for posting that! Fuck rising above hate, get out of here you punk ass bitch! Snoogins. But seriously that shit's hilarious.

@professording: It has to be right? The cavalcade manga cliches and the repeated use of Kun and Chan are unlike for a self serious manga.

Of course it's a joke. It's pulled straight out of Naruto almost verbatim. I know because I was still reading it back then, and of course because of the tell tale background of their ninja village. I would hope they base a wrestling anime on something a lot cooler than that.

I work the graveyard shift in the stock room of a big box deparment store. That whole job annoys me. I often feel like I'm the only one who can keep things straight, accurate, and organized. It's like I'm playing battle Tetris for a living and I'm constantly losing to people with really shitty Tetris skills and infinite magic orbs. Basically I stack shit like a game of Tetris using only straight and square pieces where as everyone else is stacking like Jenga and we all know how a game of Jenga ends. I sometimes wouldn't mind being fired and moving on to something else but everyone I work with sets such a low bar of quality that I'm made to look good without even trying.

I'm morally against eating mushrooms. I just think they're conceptually a very disgusting food for humans to eat. They're cultivated in the dankest darkest corners of the earth. They're from the same kingdom classification as mold. Who would want to stick that shit in their mouth willingly? Mind you I'm not above eating them if I have to. I won't pick them off of a salad or pizza like a child, I'll just eat em. I just try to avoid them if I can.

I hate cilantro on anything and find it overpowering any time it's introduced into my food. I don't like tomato slices in my sandwiches or burgers because I think it waters down the meat flavor. I'm mostly fine with pretty much all other fruits and veggies.

I don't like soup. I like to eat food, not drink it. Again I can drink soup and usually it's fine, but I'm a solid foods guy.

In the end it's like, whatever humans are at the top of the food chain right? I'll try anything once and I'm not nearly as picky as I use to be as a kid. There are children starving somewhere so I may as well stuff my face even if I end up with something I don't like. I'm of the mind set that food should not be worshiped nor given the pomp and circumstance that fancy pants restaurants give it at times.

Do they have a comic based on Valkyrie? I don't read comics but I think instead of lady thor alt, maybe that would be a better story to explore.....

Valkyrie was in the short lived Marvel Now volume of Fearless Defenders, an all female hero book. I never read it so I can't speak to the quality. The most recent run of Journey into Mystery (646-655) starred Sif as the main character and she kicked major ass. Unfortunately it did not sell very well so they canceled the book. If they ever bring that series back it most likely won't be starring Sif.

Jeff's tastes in food are in line with my own. Meat baby, lots of it. Cheese optional. Fuck cilantro. Of course I'm probably a bit more open to experiment with sauces and spreads than he is at this point. I like to get veggies when I can just to keep my body from going to complete shit but secretly I'd rather have more meat.

I have a bit in common with Alex. I like wrestling, movies, cats, and zombie stuff. You know, happy things that give me the warm fuzzies (did I mention zombies?). I'll probably never see the appeal of having that many tattoos and I can't even compare to his musical knowledge or Jeff's for that matter.

I would strive to be more like Vinny but that's a high bar for any human being.

Video game wise it's kind of a wash. I know these guy's tastes well enough to differ to their individual judgements based on the style of game play and story. If I had a proper beefy PC I'd likely play a lot more of the games they're into these days.

I don't read Thor comics at the moment. This isn't really going to change that. I've heard good things about Jason Aaron's run so far so I may go back and read some of the Marvel Now volumes. It's just not a character that interests me generally speaking.

RAW was kind of meh but I can tell they're saving up the energy of the main roster for the upcoming PPV.

Ambrose is so good. One of the few baby faces I give a damn about at the moment. He's totally the Moon Knight of the WWE universe.

Even though I think they're messing up with Cesaro I'm hoping they make him win the Intercontinental title and start hyping him up as a dude who rules at battle royals. Seeing his multilingual promos makes me think they should make him a face for international venues going forward and a heel at all the shows in the U.S. thus playing into the intercontinental symbolism. I'm not sure how many languages he's fluent in but they might as well capitalize on it.

They should really give the Tag belts to the Wyatts come Battleground. The beauty of doing that is that they can continue to let Bray do all the talking for them after they win and still remain faithful to the gimmick. I don't really care what they do with the WHC. I hope the match is good but I'm finding the chase for that title wholly uninteresting right now.

Guys, I have a new dream to hope for.

Damien Sandust.

I'm of the mind that they should split up RybAxel so we can get Rydust. Then you can stick Curtis Axel with the Wyatts and we can get those factions to feud. I've got to say fantasy booking is pretty fun.

This is nearly impossible on account of Vinny cracking up on a regular basis. I'd probably go with the Random PC Game video with Dave playing Outcast.

Speaking as an actual islander, I have to say I don't think I like the Uso's. They do good work in the ring but they should keep them far away from the mic. I'm really counting on them to fast track giving those belts to the Wyatts as soon as possible. I'm also beginning to like the bronze finish on the tag belts. Seems like an appropriate color instead of having every single title belt look generically gold. Speaking of gold I've got high hopes for the Super Dust Bros at the moment. It may be my imagination but I'm hoping they capitalize on Ryback's corpsing on camera. Maybe let him join the Dust faction then you can give a nice feud between the Super Dust Force and the Wyatts once you start giving them titles to fight for.

Other than my pontifications on the future of the Tag Team division I think Smackdown kind of sucked. It's painful to even look at Jericho perform The Walls of Jericho a Boston Crab. It's probably not a popular opinion but I think JBL's probably my favorite commentator in the main WWE shows. I mean he's by no means great but it's so hard to listen to Cole and Lawler is not as good as in his prime. And if I'm being honest he's one of the reasons I'm totally buying into the Bo Dallas gimmick. I pretty much only care about heels now in the main roster with the exception of the Dust Bros and former Shield members.
