I didn't grow up with Mean Gene but going back and seeing all that he did these past couple of years since I got back into wrestling was a really cool thing. I got bummed out when I heard it but watching all of the old clips was a nice way to deal with the sadness I felt. I'd crack open a cold one for him but I'm on a cleanse from booze after I overdid it on NYE.

"Black's bells just got jingled!" is my favorite Mauro line from NXT last night. So far anyway.

@dizzyhippos: I wonder what the taped Smackdown next week will be like. The crowd most likely won't be dead but who knows.

@dizzyhippos: I read the spoilers as well and they are definitely phoning it in next week. I'm not sure how they'll fill three hours with that stuff.

I hadn't watched a WWE PPV in a while but I did watch TLC last night. I really enjoyed the show overall but I missed Buddy/Cedric. I didn't think any of the main show matches were terrible but I didn't care about Seth/Dean at all. I'd give the show a B overall.

@cmblasko: This guy is super insane and I can't wait for him to hand over the show to HHH.

I've been listening to a lot of Something to Wrestle since I've been home sick the past few days. It's a great podcast but I do know that people either don't like Bruce or Conrad.

@dizzyhippos: I'm being sad with Sporting KC losing right now. I don't want to be any more sad.

  • Planet Hulk and World War Hulk are good if you're looking for pulpy goofiness
  • Rick Remender anything since he's just so good. If you want just one then his Uncanny X-Force run is terrific.
  • JMS's run on Thor is terrific.
  • The Infinity storyline by Hickman is terrific
  • Secret Wars by Hickman as well
  • A lot of the Secrets Wars supplementary series were great. My favorites are MODOK, Thors and Old Man Logan.
  • The cosmic run by Abnett and Lanning which begins with Annihilation and goes through The Thanos Imperative.
  • Ed Brubaker's Captain America run is one of my favorite character runs of all time.
  • Jason Aaron's runs on Wolverine, Thor and Ghost Rider are all really good.
