Re: All Elite Wrestling

Legitimate question: do you think AEW would benefit from a buck stops here person? I know they want to be a bastion of creative freedom, but maybe having Tony Khan step in when an idea isn't working wouldn't be the worst of ideas. Obviously, guys like Moxley, Jericho, and Cody are flourishing under ...

Re: All Elite Wrestling

Honestly, the whole thing feels like a champion boxer who picks the guy with a less than stellar record in hopes of an easy bout, only to be pushed to the limit.

My goodness, this angle is Rocky, isn't it?

Re: All Elite Wrestling

It doesn't bother me if only because the whole point of the segment was that Jericho gets to choose his opponent and he chose the guy with the worst record in the company.

Re: Last movie or TV show you watched

Silence There's a slew of films being released these days about Christianity and the persecution they perceive to face. As a non-believer, I find most of them to be propaganda pieces with very little basis in reality and dime-store actors giving poor performances. This film is the exact opposite of ...

Re: Random thoughts from deep in the mind

I wouldn't even know what to say to a 20-year-old at this point. In my head I sound like a creepier version of Butthead: "Hey baby, so I was your age when you were born."

Re: Technology Talk

The biggest weaknesses of my set is noticeable blooming when you get any credits sequence on a black screen and anything below 1080p doesn't upscale very well on the built-in upscaling (I get around that by letting my Blu-ray player or external chromecast do the heavy lifting on upscaling on lower r...

Re: All Elite Wrestling

I think their problem is no structure. They don't need a show to be perfectly planned like WWE but we don't even know when the next PPV is. What are we building to? Things just feel a bit all over the place and I think they still need to work on introducing talent properly. There is some good stuff...

Re: All Elite Wrestling

Hikaru Shida vs Kris Statlander was fantastic, I hope we get more stuff like this from the women's division on Dynamite.

Re: Technology Talk

I basically don't turn on the lights in my living room (unless I have guests over, and that's rare) and keep blackout curtains up throughout the house. My set has Full-array local dimming with like 130 zones so it gives really great, deep black levels without ever crushing the image. I actually pref...

Re: Random Movie/TV Comments



New Bond trailer and I can't help but wonder if they're pulling another Spekter and having Rami Malik's character secretly turn out to be Dr No.

Re: Technology Talk

I just got a 43" Class RU7100 Smart 4K UHD TV (2019) for $99 thanks to a combo of a black friday sale/a credit for signing up with Verizon recently. Reviews seem good on it. This is my first new TV in over 10 years so I'm excited to set it up and hope it works smoothly enough. What system(s) you go...

Re: NWA Powerrrr

I’m a big fan of The Butcher & The Blade. Great addition to the roster. Wait are they in the NWA too? Yeah, I think I started this, sorry. NWA talk in AEW, AEW in NWA, etc. I didnt watch this week. Is it back to "normal"? It's mostly back to normal, they did cut Cornette out of the intros of the ma...

Re: Last movie or TV show you watched

That's not where I would expect it goes. I'm not sure I see sci-fi so much as the remainder being an epilogue dealing with Elliot's shattered psyche and the fallout from this past episodes events.

Ah, the joys of owning a smart tv: spending an hour readjusting my calibration settings because a firmware update makes the picture look off when watching stuff.

Re: Last movie or TV show you watched

Mr. Robot this week could be considered a satisfactory conclusion to the series but there are still 2 episodes left. I'm still optimistic they stick the landing here, this season has been fantastic.

Re: NWA Powerrrr

I'm not blocked but I greatly reduced my time on social media so I haven't posted anything about it to them. I did let AEW know that that Butcher and the Blade segment was a dud though and haven't gained any ire for that. Am I the only one that thought the segment was tremendous? I mean you have a ...

Re: Random thoughts from deep in the mind

Our manager is so terrible at her job that the entire staff is still waiting on a schedule that begins today for this week. She's basically texting out who should come to work on a day by day basis. All of the staff is looking to turn her in to corporate tomorrow over this as the schedule is suppose...

Re: NWA Powerrrr

I just hope they go back to the regular presentation on Tuesday. That clip show was depressing to watch last week.
