Getting around to feedback. I’m gonna tinker around till I find the best way to do this – well, the best color, at least.
Having watched most of the FLCL eps, I can safely say it makes little to no sense…your average episode of Family Guy holds together better plotwise. It’s still damn funny, if not very drug-influenced. I’d imagine drugs make it more coherant, too. The South Park scene out of nowhere was…interesting. I’d rather have more of that and less of Inuyasha.
I heard to watch it two times, and it makes sense the second time. Or maybe it doesn’t, and that’s why it’s so great.
Having successfully avoided most WWE programming (last SD I saw was…Benoit/Brock? That was good though), I have little to say on that, although I’m sad I missed Spank Calling/WGTT last week. Maybe we’ll get London vs. Charlie or Shelton before he gets cut, which I’d go out of my way to watch.
From the sounds of it, they would’ve done Spanky/London vs Kyo Dai (don’t look at me – that’s what the website says in Akio and Sakoda bios – note Sakoda’s name is spelled different on the profile and they’re not consisnent whether Kyo Dai is the goon tag team or the three person unit) which would’ve been equally fun. They haven’t seemed to want to use Haas and Benjamin at all in singles matches of late unless one guy is hurt or they’re doing the “teams feuding over the tag titles face off in singles matches” bit, so I don’t like the chances there.
Random question- they ever let London do his neckbreaker variation? Looks vaguely like a Side Effect. Used it in one of his matches vs. Danielson, if you’ve seen any of those.
I haven’t seen ROH (yet?) but I don’t recall seeing London use a move like that. But he’s only had a couple singles matches since he’s come in; I suspect that he’ll try to break out more moves (in the hopes that one catches someone’s eye) if he’s back to singles now.
So what’s the over/under on Morgan’s finisher getting renamed the Blueprint Thunder Bomb?
Someone getting the name to Josh. That’s just goofy enough for him to use.
Spanky’s the new Van Gogh [underappreciated, yet great] so he’s taking his paintbrush and easel elsewhere. Good for him.
Yep. He’s got a ton of options, so he might as well try a few different ones.
Of course, Shannon’s evil act currently involves a lot of pointing and smiling cockily.
The sneer SO needs to be worked on. Maybe he needs the Mandy Moore makeover and to dye his hair brown.
I’d be good, if he’d stick that way. Probably not worth to invest in evil hair dye if you might be good next week.
I never noticed it being a tattoo. I’ve read an interview where Shannon says he’s considering getting more tattoos.
Josh likes pointing it out for whatever reason. I think the joke started “Shannon has a very large…….dragon (tattoo)” and spiraled out of control from there.
“Asai DDT one two three”
Arrgh, another really fake looking finisher. Is it really a DDT? I thought it was an inverted DDT.
Asai DDT is the “Offical Name” of it, though truly he’s only used on Velocity so it may be one of those pseudo-authetnic Josh names. It looked sharper a while ago but now the whole pose thing he’s doing is making it look even less-believable. He completely and totally should’ve just used the Dragon Sleeper.
“Orlando Jordan (Miami, FL, 240 pounds)”
Is absolutely horrible and wears horrible yellow tights with a BEAR [???] on his ass. I’ll bring up why I think he’s horrible very soon.
I think they decided it was a tiger. He’s actually better than when he started around here, in that he can get through a token 4-5 minute match without totally embarassing himself.
Well, Matt had the half-crab for like a good minute. And Orlando did limp around for like a minute and then all of the sudden, he’s kicking and FEELING IT. God damnit, sell.
That’s about normal. You’ve got to agree with me that it’s not quite a painful looking hold itself. I think they want to do push the hanging action more; maybe Morgan should find someway of holding the leg above his shoulder rather than below the shoulder? I don’t know if that’s even anatomically correct.
Maybe he should try to maybe wrestle a good match instead of trying to get over his character…
He should, but it’s what Arch does every time he’s on – figure out the zaniest thing he can do to get a reaction from the crowd or the announcers.
I believe he said “two and NINE TENTHS”
“Josh: “White Russian Legsweep!” “I don’t get it.””
I believe he initially called it a russian legsweep, but then said “I probably woulda called it a white russian legsweep.” Then after Bill didn’t get it, Josh went into detail of what’s in a white russian – vodka, milk and a little bit of Kahlua. And Bill was like “yeah, you’d drink something with milk” like he was implying that Josh was not a real man’s drinker. I dunno.
I heard the explanation, but thought for some reason it might be an old ECW/Sandman reference. Which was about the drink too, sure.
Oh that ruled. I started getting visions of those 1-minute match clips of Barry Darsow wrestling and locking in the EVIL FUJIWARA ARMBAR and Tenay would go nuts and say OH MY GOD HIS ARM ISN’T SUPPOSED TO TURN THAT WAY!!! and the guy would have to tap immediately. Lovely stuff.
They need to make a tag team of guys with killer Fujiwara armbar and cross armbreaker finishers.
I thought if he’d have to hit the clothesline, he’d do it with the other arm because if he did hit it, it would hurt more. I think I recall Bradshaw actually doing that one time…but I dunno. I’m growin’ old.
I think Bradshaw is growing dumber in his old age; that would’ve been cooler Or if there’s a near fall based off the left handed clothesline
Or if the body part injury actually cost a match. I’m almost willing to start charting that…
