Blood, and urine, and vomit.

I like the idea that Dolph Ziggler’s shtick and character can’t be a how a main eventer acts. If Randy Orton can be how a main eventer acts, anything can be how a main eventer acts.

This Day in WCW History: One night after departing Raven’s Flock and setting out on his own, Billy Kidman replaces an injured Kaz Hayashi and pulls off the upset against Juventud Guerrera by landing the Shooting Star Press to win his first World’s Cruiserweight Championship on the September 14, 1998 edition of Monday Nitro.

Maybe my favorite match in Nitro history. Definitely my favorite Kidman match. Also arguably the best Nitro in history (this was the night Flair returned, too).

you know, TV-PG.

they’re giving MARK HENRY RALLIES AMERICA the main event slot?

as they should!

Man part of the dream I had last night is that Triple H was wrestling Marty Jannetty on house shows. I just remembered that.

Merch: Looking like an explosion at dafont.com, the newest Dolph Ziggler shirt is proof that maybe somebody is trying to prevent the Show Off from becoming legitimate, main event talent. Folks, if somebody approaches you while wearing one of these, run in the opposite direction. Even if they have ripped abs, Ramen-noodle hair, and are named “Dolph Ziggler.”

Bull Dempsey or Bull Buchanon?

Probably Dempsey. Buchanan was mechanical, one of those guys who did a few things that were kind of impressive, but didn’t actually know how to have a good match or put things together. Dempsey can have matches.

vader-bomb reblogged your post You people are all wrong, Bull Dempsey… and added:

What is the justification of WWE announcing they've signed Kenta, mentioned him as Kenta, debut Kenta, have him come to the ring and then tell us his new name of "Hideo Itami"? I don't get this at all.

It’s about trademarking. They can’t trademark KENTA. They can trademark Hideo Itami. Jim Cornette claims Vince wanted to call Vader “The Mastodon.” Cornette added, “I said, ‘it’s fuckin’ Vader!’”

I don’t think that’s what people are having a problem with. Everybody gets that WWE changes names for trademark purposes. People have a problem with him being billed as Kenta, on WWE tv, and then changing his name. I don’t have this problem, I didn’t even think about it until I got on tumblr. However, I do think they could have just announced it as “the NXT introduction of Hideo Itami”.

I’m guessing the reason they announced that they signed KENTA, called him KENTA first, and then changed his name is as simple as it doesn’t hurt that they acknowledged his pre-WWE (or NXT anyway) career and then had him take a new name. They’ve never done it that way before — like, they didn’t announce Mistico and then change him to Sin Cara on TV — but NXT is such a niche audience within their niche audience that I think they’re acknowledging that people watching NXT largely know he’s KENTA, know something about his career, and hey, they signed KENTA, aren’t you excited? and now he’s got a new name because that’s just the way it’s going to be. At least he had an explanation for doing it, I suppose.

So I just got WWE Network and I'm freaking out. Skinny Mikey Whipwreck! Mr. Hughes is a shitty wrestler! How did Sabu not die every match! WCCW just in general!

Everyone’s first week with WWE Network:

Rank the fatal four way participants in the order in which you'd prefer to make out with them.
  1. Sami Zayn, I guess.
  2. Tyler Breeze. I’m not that into him, but
  3. Tyson Kidd seems really weird, and
  4. Adrian Neville looks like an orc
