Watched Impact's replay last night and I HATED everything from the moment Mr. Overrated...I mean, Anderson came out. The Abyss/Ric Flair stuff was complete garbage and the Mr. Anderson interview was the only thing on the whole show that made me want to change the channel. I did however like the Matt Morgan/Team Mohawk storyline where the two mohawked wrestlers formed an alliance against him, Shannon Moore vs Kaz was good as was the post-match Samoa Joe beat down, and I also liked the AJ Styles/Sting tag team win over Jeff Jarrett/Jeff Hardy. However the show overall was just okay, nothing too special. The ending really killed the show. The tag match really should've been the main event, not two guys fighting over rings that were given to Flair and Hulk Hogan by the WWE.
South Park was really funny this week. They made fun of Intervention, the television show about interventions. Towelie, who is working at a summer camp for handicapped children. A lot of the kids at the camp where Jimmy and Timmy go to camp are modeled after Looney Toons characters. The storyline also pokes fun at Looney Toons as Nathan and his minion Mimzy keep trying to defeat the Blue Team so their Red Team wins the camp sports competition. The plan always backfires due to Mimzy screwing up every plan Nathan has. In the other storyline, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, and Butters get the drug addicted Towelie to stop doing drugs. The best part is when Towelie is revealed to have a girlfriend who he got pregnant. She gave birth to a washcloth. The fact that they spoofed the movie Meatballs makes it even funnier. Here are some highlights:
The season finale of the first season. Callie is stuck going with . Meanwhile Mark is stuck dealing with all of the creatures they help off the clock due to budget cuts. Callie keeps having nightmares about Twayn but when he pussies out of his speech at the demon convention, she is immediately turned off. Mark then ends up saving the day by showing up at the convention and she uses him to show that even a goodie goodie human like Mark can approve of their plans. This gets a great response from the demons and Mark also gets the giant ape his cleaning job back. Funny moment when Mechagodzilla is revealed to be Kong's next door neighbor. Good stuff this week.
NHL Playoffs, Round 2 Predictions:
My round one predictions didn't exactly pan out. Here are mine for round 2.
Western Conference -
Vancouver Canucks over Chicago Blackhawks 4-2
San Jose Sharks over Detroit Red Wings 4-2
Eastern Conference -
Montreal Canadiens over Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3
Boston Bruins over Philadelphia Flyers 4-3
Good playoffs so far. Glad the Suns made it to round 2. Hope they beat those horrible Spurs. Not surprised the Eastern Conference playoffs have been one sided in all but one series. Some of those Eastern playoff teams are garbage. Surprised I'm actually rooting for the Utah Jazz but they are playing the other team I despise, the Denver Thuggets. For my Suns fans out there, here's the greatest moment in NBA Playoff history.
My pick to win - Ice Box. How can I resist a horse that makes me think of that old monster truck the Michigan Ice Monster?
Wrestling Gone Stupid, Part 4:
I've found something really horrible today. I give to you the craptitude that is Sting going to Vader's White Castle of Fear back in early '90's WCW. Horrible, horrible stuff.
Ummm....yeah. WCW really was horrible back then, weren't they? Yeah. I've got more horrible videos saved on my Youtube from them. This will not be the last of the Wrestling Gone Stupid segment ont the blog.
That's all for now. Hopefully will have another update on here by the end of the weekend.

First things first. WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY THINKING?! These challenges have turned the best wrestling show on TV from a great show with excellent wrestling and great storylines into a crap show dominated by pointless, lame ass challenges and rushed wrestling in most of the matches but the ones that are good are really good. Really liked how Josh Matthews called Michael Cole a "tool" on NXT last night.
As of now, here are my NXT ratings:
1. Wade Barrett
2. Daniel Bryan
3. Darren Young (biggest improvement on the show)
4. Heath Slater
5. Justin Gabriel
6. David Otunga
7. Skip Sheffield
8. Michael Tarver
VOTE DESMOND WOLFE! That is all. He's only 2% higher than Jeff Hardy (who is literally HIGH) and he needs our help to win. Also glad Abyss is in dead last. That makes me happy.
This show is one of my personal favorites on television. Really liked last night's episode especially the McGee storyline and the Gibbs polygraph test part. I'm still waiting for Tony and Ziva to hook up. That will be awesome when it happens.
Boy were my predictions WAY off. Picked the Coyotes over the Sabres in the Stanley Cup Finals and both are out already. I did pick 3 of the 4 Western Conference winners though but only one of the Eastern Conference (defending champs Pittsburgh). I'll do round 2 predictions tomorrow.
The Jazz are beating the Thuggets which makes me happy. Cavs, Magic, and Celtics are already in round two in the absurdly lopsided Eastern Conference. Western Conference is wild, as usual. Every series is close sans the Jazz and Thuggets. Surprised Utah is doing so great but it makes me happy since I don't like Denver at all.
Star Wars: Battlefront II:
Started playing this again and I'm addicted to it again. Playing Capture the Flag on the Instant Action mode is the funnest thing ever. The Jabba's Palace level is a nightmare because of the Gomorrians but the others were pretty cool. However the Palace wasn't bad either. Just the Gomorrians killing me more than the Rebel Alliance got annoying after awhile though. Mos Eisley was fun. When the Jawas took both the Imperial (my team) flag and the Rebel flag, it turned into a prolonged shootout. Naturally I turned into John Rambo and took on an entire Rebel spawn point by myself. Good times.
And finally I have to do my civic duty and warn everyone about the crap that is the Hollywood Undead. They're like a fake Slipknot, Linkin Park, Bloodhound Gang, Insane Clown Posse, and Mushroomhead all at the same time. They have one good song followed by a whole album of crappy songs afterward. They opening track "Undead" is good but it's all downhill from there. I highly don't recommend this album. It's complete garbage.

Did you know you can vote for TNA's wrestler rankings? Here's the news story and video about it.
Desmond Wolfe is the rankings leader now. I HOPE him or The Pope get 1st place. Anything else is just the "same old shit" which is what WWE is always accused of doing. And how in the hell does Rob Terry have 6% of the vote: SIX PERCENT?! That's a little high. And Mr. Anderson has 12%?! TWELVE?! THAT'S A TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE! He's shit in the ring 90% of the time and is Mr. Overrated/Mr. Injury. He should be dead last along with Terry and Abyss. Everyone else, even the vets, should be above him. Sorry but it's the truth. In other words, VOTE WOLFE, VOTE POPE. Rant over.
WWE Hall of Fame Ring Match on TNA:
TNA is DESPERATE right now, so much so that they had the stupidity of a match with the Hall of Fame rings of their competition on the line. It had Rid Flair, who should've retired ten years ago, taking on Abyss who basically is like a fake Makind/Kane type guy who's turned into Dave Sullivan meets the Castle Freak. I can't wait to see the replay on Thursday to see how stupid this lame ass crap is.
And now to the draft show itself. The matches on the show made up for the lackluster draft that honestly wasn't too surprising. I wanted Taker and Kane on RAW but oh well.
-Hart Dynasty won the Tag Titles to start which started with Miz and Bret Hart talking. Hart said "Mountie was the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time" in a mocking reference. Bret LOST the Intercontinental Title to the Mountie so that joke makes no sense. Good match with ShowMiz though and the Miz getting punched out by Show was great.
-Good women's tag match followed by Kelly Kelly being the first draft pick.
-CM Punk beat Superboy...I mean, Evan Bourne in the second match which was EXCELLENT. Big Show was sent to Smackdown.
-Sheamus, Randy Orton, and John Cena then had a confrontation that led to Orton vs Sheamus later in the show since Cena apparently is both obnoxious and in charge. Oh well. He did better than most of the guest hosts. Sheamus saying "fella" I think will get him over as a face eventually. I can hear it now.
Sheamus: "I'm going to kick your arse back to wherever it is you come from, fella."
Sheamus is a champion that kids can be proud of, not scum like John Cena or Edge. The heel came across as the face to me in this segment.
-RAW then won an excellent 5 on 5 battle royal match with Santino (who was hilarious) and Ted DiBiase winning it for RAW. John Morrison, R. turth, and Edge then went to RAW. I HATE this Edge pick. Seriously, this guy is SO stale to me it's not even funny. Cena is more exciting than this guy. This guy's an R Rated sneak attack artist. How can these idiot marks and fanboy smarks cheer for this guy or Cena, an obnoxious Vanilla Ice wanna-be who had to cheat to beat Batista the night before? Sheamus, Punk, Swagger, and Jericho are heroes that kids can be proud of, not these guys.
-Jericho then ranted on the mic and to Heath Slater before Jericho beat Christian in the match of the night. Kofi Kingston then was drafted to Smackdown. Like this move.
-Jack Swagger beat John Morrison in ANOTHER great match. Not one bad match tonight. Christian was then drafted to Smackdown. They'd better have him, Kofi, Punk, and Swagger feuding over the belt sometime in the near future.
-Backstage Ted DiBiase got dissed by Carlito and slapped by R. Truth in a segment wrought with racial overtones in its content.
-Hornswaggle beat Dolph Ziggler by countout in the most pointless match possible. Then Ziggler CHOKED OUT THAT STUPID LEPRECHAUN! THAT MADE ME SOOOO HAPPY! I'm glad he destroyed that little creature. Made my night and made up for the night. Your hero and mine Chris Jericho was then drafted to RAW. Like this move too. Wish Punk was moved over too. Him and Jericho are on another planet compared to the rest of these guys as far as mic skills go.
-Batista then won a triple threat main event over Sheamus and Randy Orton. This was really good. Orton RKO'd Sheamus but Edge ran in and Speared Orton. Batista put his arm over Orton and won the match. Looks like Edge is a heel again. His face run was shit in my opinion and I've said that before. It's sad that the heels STILL seem more like faces than the actual faces. Batista got screwed, Sheamus got mocked, and Jericho had to survive outside intereference to win. The heels are the guys who are the real good guys on RAW tonight.
TNA Impact and WWE RAW Ratings:
RAW - 3.1-3.3
TNA - 0.5
TNA is on the verge of epic fail under Hogan's leadership or lack-thereof. This is hilarious to me. RVD wins the title one week and the rating dips in half. Yeah that's a good sign. TNA needs an overhaul and it's clear that they're on the verge of going to 0.3 a week.
Wrestling Gone Stupid, Part 3:
This is one of the greatest stupid gimmicks of all time. Abe "Knuckleball" Schwartz is a wrestler who had a baseball gimmick. This guy was hilarious to me for some reason. Check this out.
Stupid yet funny at the same time especially if you're a baseball fan.
Wrestling Gone Awesome, Part 1:
Here is something that is awesome. Jim Cornette ranting and shooting on the wrestling business. This is a man that the children of the world and the wrestling fans can be proud of and look up to. Check this stuff out.
Yeah, I know. This stuff is great. Tomorrow is about everything else minus NXT of course.
Monday, April 26, 2010
Cena over Batista (Cena won) 1-0
Edge over Jericho (Edge won) 2-0
Sheamus over Triple-H (Sheamus won) 3-0
Swagger over Orton (Swagger won) 4-0
Beth Phoenix over Michelle McCool (Phoenix won) 5-0
CM Punk over Rey Mysterio (Punk won) 6-0
Shad Gaspard over JTG (JTG won) 6-1
Hart Dynasty also won a tag team gauntlet match that wasn't advertised
Yeah, did pretty good other than the strap match. They booked that one to clearly set up a rematch but other than that I was dead on with my predictions.
WWE Draft Predictions:
That's right, folks. The WWE Draft is tonight. Here are my predictions:
To RAW - Drew McIntyre, Hart Dynasty, CM Punk, Serena, Luke Gallows, Matt Hardy, R-Truth, Undertaker, Team LayCool
To Smackdown - Sheamus, Evan Bourne, Mark Henry, Melina, Chavo Guerrero, Chris Masters, Christian, Alicia Fox, Randy Orton, The Miz, Triple-H, Kelly Kelly, Rosa Mendes, Zack Ryder
Those are my predictions. Tried to shake them up as much.
I would cross the line...IF THEY DID TWO GOOD SHOWS IN A ROW!!! That said, I liked last week's show. This weeks should be garbage going by their trend of one really good show followed by one crap show.
WCW Great American Bash 2000 and WCW New Blood Rising 2000:
Watch both of these pay-per-views in their entirety (sans Awesome vs Storm at NBR 2000) and they both basically show why WCW failed. At one point during the Bash Shane Douglas beat the Wall in a match where you had to put your opponent through 5 tables. He only put him through three. Yeah, that makes no sense whatsoever. What pointless garbage. The best match was Hogan vs. Kidman on there. They even did a Human Torch Match where Sting was switched with a stunt double and was thrown off the stage. It was so hokey and fake it ruined it. They had so many handicapped matches it was sad and ruined the concept. As far as New Blood Rising goes, the first match (3 Count vs Jung Dragons in a 3-on-3 ladder match) started it off with a bang. Then it slowly went downhill from there. The low point was the Judy Bagwell on a Forklift match and even went lower with the Mud Rip off the Clothes match with Major Gunns defeating Stacy Keibler to lead off the fake pregnancy storyline. Those two matches and the lacklusterness of every match around them sans the Kidman/Douglas strap match and the Great Muta appearing was horrible. Most of the matches were lackluster and that slow pacing killed the crowd and the show in general.
WCW Slamboree '96:
Watched this last night with my best friend. This show was GREAT. A lot of little used midcard WCW wrestlers were on this show in the Lethal Lottery Competition. These stars include Earl Robert Eaton, Blue Bloods, Fire and Ice, Dirty Dick Slater, Faces of Fear, Public Enemy, Big Bubba, VK Wallstreet, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Hugh Morrus, Alex Wright, Booty Man, Sgt. Craig Pittman, and Disco Inferno. Some more major WCW stars were in it too such as "Diamond" Dallas Page, Steiners, Kevin Sullivan, Chris Benoit, Harlem Heat, Road Warriors, Lex Luger, Eddie Guerrero, Randy Savage, Ric Flair, and Arn Anderson. There also was a Konnan vs Jushin Thunder Liger match, the Battle Bowl Final (which was great and Page won it in an upset to set up his rise to stardom), Dean Malenko vs Brad Armstrong in another good match, and main evented by Sting vs The Giant with Luger handcuffed to Jimmy Hart at ringside. Overall I really liked this show in the fact that a lot of guys who weren't normally put over got put over big time. Most notable of these were Dallas Page, Earl Robert Eaton, Dirty Dick Slater, the Barbarian, Brad Armstrong, Konnan, and Public Enemy. Good show. WAY better than the 2000 pay-per-views I watched.
Well I almost went hiking but something else came up and nixed that. Was going to go with a female friend of mine. I hope we can go this weekend to Mt. Charleston or Red Rock. Haven't been to either place in ages. And I know what all of my guy friends are going to ask.
Them: "James, do you have a woman?"
Me: "I dunno."
Them: "How do you not know?"
Me: "I don't know. I'm not good with that stuff. I usually end up like one of those bad luck movies or television show guys."
Them: "Oh, ok."
Yeah, something like that. Rambling a bit. Hope we can go hiking this weekend. Moving on.
Really enjoyed this movie a lot. Lots of action, comedy, and some great heelage by the bad guys. Great visuals throughout and it was pretty good overall storywise. I recommend it since it's probably the best movie out right now.
And that's all for now.

World Champion Jack Swagger to retain over Randy Orton in an Extreme Rules Match.
Prediction: DiBiase and Rhodes or one of them will interfere thus distracting Orton and helping Swagger win. Swagger needs a big one to get credibility as a champion and this will be a good win for him in my opinion.
WWE Champion John Cena over Batista in a Last Man Standing Match.
Prediction: Batista is leaving WWE soon so this is a no brainer. The moment they switched him with Triple-H for the movie role I knew he was gone and also who the winner of this match would be.
Sheamus over Triple-H in a Street Fight
Prediction: Sheamus will brutally beat Triple-H in this match so that Trips' can take a hiatus and that they can explain him not being on TV while he goes to film the movie. Plus he's having neck and back issues so this one also a no brainer.
Edge over Chris Jericho in a Steel Cage Match
Prediction: Edge will win this one and it will be an awesome match. However it will set up an Edge/Swagger match but will also put over Jericho as a legit threat who almost had it won.
CM Punk over Rey Mysterio in a match that if Punk loses, his head gets shaved
Prediction: Punk's Straight Edge Society will interfere and cost Rey the match. If Punk loses, however, I think it will be a surprise, at least to me it will be.
Beth Phoenix over Women's Champion Michelle McCool in an Extreme Makeover Match
Prediction: Phoenix will win the title and McCool will get overpowered. Plus I expect a Layla and Vickie Guerrero run in that will backfire.
Shad Gaspard over JTG in a Strap Match
Prediction: Shad will win by brutalizing JTG near the end to get him over as a ruthless heel that show no pity, even on his former best friend. This match holds particular interest to me since I saw Shad turn on JTG here in Vegas a few weeks back.
Those are my predictions. RUSSO BE DAMNED, I hope it's not any worse than what I just typed up.
Friday, April 23, 2010
Watched Impact last night and it was only SLIGHTLY better than a lackluster Smackdown invasion RAW. SLIGHTLY better and it was their best one all year. That is seriously sad. From all the markage over what happened it really wasn't that intriguing. The Pope should be the champ, not RVD. It still seems to me like Hogan giving the belt to a buddy. What garbage.
Arizona Immigration Reform:
OMGZ~! ARIZONA R A POLICE STATE~! My response: SO WHAT?! There are police states all over the world and nobody says crap about that unless they attack a member of NATO. Come on, people. The real culprit here are all the drug addicts in the US who are fueling the drug trade and the cartel wars south of the border. The war and drug trade is what led to this. All of the screaming, hollering drug addicts who are pissed about this and all of those crying foul over race have no one to blame but drug abusing Americans for all of this. The drug trade is what caused this. Also, there are illegal immigrants here from other countries besides Mexico and other countries in Latin America. They're here from Russia, China, England, Poland, Thailand, and the list can go on so don't give me this race crap. Put a clamp down on illegal drug abusers and this will probably fade away quicker than Howard Dean's presidential campaign after the primal screaming incident.
Being Single in Vegas:
Being single in this town sucks. And women who complain about being single are the worst. You want to know why you are single? For one you're spending too much time complaining about men so your men friends think your standards are too high which they probably are. Then, from a guy's perspective (in this case mine), on dates the women in my age range all have the SAME EXACT PERSONALITY only slightly different. They like the same crappy television shows, the same crappy musical artists, the same crappy movies that are complete shit, and they all want these macho, hunky, jock douchebag guys (especially if they have tattoos and will treat them like shit) that are just like them. Mindless, zombie clones that can't think for themselves and follow the various pointless fads. Oh, and all they seem to care about is drinking, partying, and dressing up for yet another stupid, overrated nightclub that just opened up. I want someone who has a personality, has a sense of humor, can think for themselves, and is different because seeing the same thing OVER AND OVER again is just stale. I've only gone out with one woman who fits that description and we only went out once. Found one here recently who is an old friend and likes Tool, A Perfect Circle, Rock Music, AND the Lakers. That's a keeper. Plus she has an actual personality. Yes, that is a MAJOR PLUS.
Wrestling Gone Stupid, Part 2:
After the horror that was P.N. News, I now give to you the horror that is the Ding Dongs. I don't EVER want any e-wrestling people to trash on my characters again because no character I have ever created is more pointless than the Ding Dongs. At least they had a purpose. The Ding Dongs had no purpose in WCW other than to look like walking condoms that ring bells. Don't believe me? Watch and see that I'm telling the truth just like Jericho does every week.
See? Told you so. With that, I leave you for the weekend.
Thursday, April 22, 2010
HOLY CRAP. WWE today released Slam Master J, Kung Fu Naki, Katie Lea Burchill, Jimmy Wayne Yang, Shelton Benjamin, and Mickie James. Yes, you read that right. MICKIE JAMES AND SHELTON BENJAMIN. I'm in shock over those two. The other four, not so surprising since they were little used but those two are major releases. However it was because of her actions on the European Tour that led to travel delays on the tour. For more on that, check out this link:
Yeah, that explains a lot. However the pro-TNA propaganda from some of the fan boys on Wrestlinginc.com annoys the crap out of me. I know TNA is good but come on. It's getting a bit too fanatical as far as the fanboys go for my taste.
Going to watch the full replay tonight and do a report on the next blog. In other news, Vince Russo stepped down as TNA's head writer. THANK GOD! In a related story, Goldberg called him a moron on Twitter today. Goldberg is right More on this:
As I suspected, he doesn't have the final say, it's Hogan and Bischoff. Been saying that for awhile. Now everyone knows who to REALLY blame for TNA's stupidity.
One comment...SUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Lions will be a dark horse team not this season but in 2011. NFL, watch out.
NHL and NBA Playoffs:
Anybody else notice that the playoffs in both the NBA and NHL are either really close or blowouts? There is seemingly no in-between. I hope some of these games get better. So far the most exciting thing was that thug Kevin Garnett throwing some elbows.
Wrestling Goes Stupid, Part 1:
Well this is going to be the first of a series I like to call Wrestling Goes Stupid. First on my list is the horror known simply as P.N. News. I don't want to hear any more complaints about Cena after you watch this.
See? Told ya it was that bad. That's all for now. More Wrestling Goes Stupid as well as Impact review on the next blog.
Wednesday, April 21, 2010
What the fuck is going on with this show? It starts off great, the first five shows are the best wrestling on television. Now, four weeks later, it's more of a joke than TNA is. What the hell are they thinking? First off they dropped most of the storylines that made the show work. Second is the contests. The contests are the stupidest crap I've ever seen in my life. Talking about flowers on the mic? Please. I'd rather see Roseanne Barr in Playboy than listen to that crap for twenty minutes. Yeah, it's that bad. The nadir of the show took place this week with this American Gladiators-Joust type competition that literally made me start laughing over how pointless and stupid it was. It was like watching live action Wii Sports Resort or something along those lines. NXT is really becoming the TNA of the WWE universe. Hopefully they turn it around and end the pointless, stupid, wanna-be Survivor competitions on there. I wonder what's next. Maybe Hidden Immunity Idols perhaps? Hmmm....
Oh, and I have a video of this stupidity too. Watch, then follow this up by pointing at your screen and laughing.
My tweets about it from last night -
What the fuck is this shit? Is NXT turning into American Gladiators now?
What's next? The NXT Rookies rolling in giant balls around an obstacle course against guys named Blaze and Storm?
At least the NXT Pros agree with me about Slater and also about Barrett.
Jericho yelling "You're stupid!" at the ref after losing to Slater had me laughing. That was hilarious to me about something.
Just watched the TNA videos on Youtube and they weren't bad...wait, I lied. Other than the RVD one, it didn't look so great. The Beautiful People match and the pre-Samoa Joe portion of the Team Hogan/Team Flair match were horrible. However I did see one video that made me literally despise the RVD title change. Watch this crap.
Yeah, that made it literally seem like Hogan had them book one of his buddies to win the title. Hogan and RVD, buddies? RVD title win? Coincidence? I think not. "The Pope" DeAngelo Dinero had better be throwing a fit. He, in my opinion, should be the champion right now and I hope they make him turn heel over not getting his chance to be the champ due to "politics" which would make for a great heel turn. I also read what they had in store for next week. Yeah, don't expect a show this caliber next week. Read it over and one word came to mind: GARBAGE.
Arizona Immigration Law:
I'm glad FINALLY someone is enforcing this. It should've happened years ago. You know why? Because there's a difference between the words legal and illegal. Legal means you have a right to do something or, in this case, the legal citizen has a right to be here. Illegal means you don't have a right to do something or, in this case, the illegal citizen doesn't have the right to be here because they are ILLEGALLY in this country. Now there is a provision in this law that prevents race or ethnicity from being a determining factor in this so all of these idiots who haven't read the law and are crying foul over the law have no grounds to because of this provision. It's all a matter of having the proper paperwork or finding suspicious paperwork when they make a stop. Between this and Roman Polanski, I'm happy that laws are FINALLY being enforced in this country.
Phoebe Prince Bullying Suicide Case/Bullying:
These teenagers involved with this case are scum, plain and simple. They all plead not guilty but, judging by what I've read, they're guilty as hell. Aren't these stupid fucktard teens and tweens going to learn anything? Columbine ring a bell? Apparently the two murderers were bullied and this, in part, influenced them into doing that heinous act. Hopefully history doesn't repeat itself in the future because of bullying. Here's two good articles about it including one with a video:
Yeah, I weep for the future if the teens who do this stuff are in charge.
Okay, next blog with feature something I like to call Wrestling Gone Stupid. Yeah, that says it all. Expect to laugh...A LOT.
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Okay, now get a load of this. Academy Award winning director Roman Polanski is begging Obama for mercy. I HOPE that Obama has none. This bastard sodomized a thirteen year old girl. He's nothing but, let's face it, a borderline pedophile who deserves no leniency. I don't care who you are, you can't do that and get away with it. I say make an example of this guy to show these celebrities, sports stars, and other public figures that NO ONE is above the law.
RAW Report -
RAW this week was a mixed bag. I liked half of the stuff, the other half was pointless and stupid crap. This was the first week that TNA Impact was actually better than RAW for the first time all year.
The show started with Triple-H in the ring talking about the volcano/travel situation with the RAW roster and making some sarcastic comments that, for once, were funny. He also said that the Smackdown eoster would be wrestling on this week's show. Then Punk came out and showed why he (along with Jericho) are in another dimension in comparison to everyone else as far as mic work goes. Then came Trips rambling on and on before Punk and his minions tried to shave his head. Rey made the save and cut off a piece of Punk's hair with Trips' help.
Drew McIntyre then beat Matt Hardy in a short crappy match that looked like something you would normally see on Impact.
Vladimir Kozlov then came out and threatened to destroy MacGruber. MacGruber then came out and made fun of Kozlov's mom. He then brought out R-Truth whom he accidentally blew up with his explosives and only his smoking shoes were left which led to him having to face Kozlov later in the show. The mic work was good but the moment R-Truth got blow'd up, I thought to myself "OH MY GOD! THEY KILLED R-TRUTH! YOU BASTARDS!" It also came across like something back from 1993 when WWE was really horrible. This was followed by a pointless Trips/Kane/MacGruber "comedy" segment that was worse than the horror movie Ice Queen.
Undertaker beat Jack Swagger in the best match of the night. This was long and was good but the wrong guy won. Swagger is the World Champion and him losing every week makes him look like a chump. Swagger needs wins to gain credibility. However, on the flip side, it is Undertaker so I'll let this one slide.
Jericho then gave MacGruber advice for his match. The chick with MacGruber is pretty cute. This led to MacGruber against Kozlov. Kozlov headbutted the horrible acting MacGruber a few times before MacGruber was saved by Ryan Phillipe (his co-star) who brought out his brother Khaluber, which was Great Khali in MacGruber costume and wig to make it a handicapped 2-on-1 match. Khaluber hit the big chop and Khaluber chased Kozlov out. MacGruber then said some stupid things and sadly wasn't blown up by Val Kilmer to end the show.
HHH, Edge, and Rey Mysterio beat CM Punk, Luke Gallows, and Chris Jericho. Jericho should've gotten more air time on this show to show the rest of these guys (sans Punk) how to talk on a microphone without sounding like an idiot with the shitty material they are given by the idiots on the creative team. This match was really good and it ended the show on a good note.
Speaking of the writing crew, if WWE had a Creative Team that knew what it was doing, then TNA would be dead right now. However their creative team is the CLEAR weakness of the company. WWE needs to get a creative overhaul ASAP.
Apparently Rob Van Dam won the TNA World Championship this week on Impact, Team Hogan won a pay-per-view rematch, and Jeff Hardy lost to Rob Van Dam. If all this happened and no one watched, did it really happen? Probably so but my point is, when you do a show with this much happening on it, YOU ADVERTISE IT RELENTLESSLY WEEKS IN ADVANCE LIKE WWE IS DOING FOR NEXT WEEK'S DRAFT SHOW! *ahem* I mean, TNA screwed themselves by not advertising the Hardy/RVD match before the show as well as putting on, YET AGAIN, another shitty pay-per-view the night before. TNA is CLEARLY trying too hard to be the new ECW. I mean, think about it. Rob Van Dam as champion, blood in most of the matches (at the pay-per-view), weapons all over the place, and trying to cater to the extreme wrestling audience. This to me is like WCW circa 2000 but with more blood. The booking is mostly WCW style which makes it seem like how WCW Thunder used to be. TNA sounded good and read good on the reviews, but they still have a LONG ways to go.
And lastly, I must share this movie trailer with you. It's called the Expendables. Until next time, enjoy.

Tea Party and Coffee Party:
Ok, I'm sure everyone knows about the Tea Party Movement and the smaller Coffee Party movement. Here's make take on them: they're both propaganda wings of the DNC and the RNP. It's that simple. They're formed by activists that have worked for both political parties so therefore they're essentially fake political parties and all they're doing is stirring up shit and making the party they represent look desperate for votes. Actual politicians aren't much better especially with Nevada's democratic representatives turning the UNLV protests into a political propaganda piece just to get more votes.
My take on this is simple and easy to remember: Let's worry about the LEGAL citizens and their economic woes first before worrying about the ILLEGAL citizens. That would make sense except it's an election year and both parties need more pointless crap to argue endlessly about.
Political stuff done. Now to everything else.
This is a relatively new phenomenon relating to TNA's insane, crazy, delusional fans on Twitter. I have never seen so many obsessed, delusional people since the Manson Family in the late '60's. Dear lord. The moment you tell them anything bad about TNA they flip out and start calling you a 'WWE mark' or a 'Cena lover' or something even worse. I mean, for example, they tell people to slit their wrists and things of that nature if you even rip into TNA in the slightest. Reality check, idiots. TNA is garbage, TotalNonAction under the Hogan/Bischoff regime. An improving product has inched closer to death at a much faster rate than it was before they took over. TNA needs a major overhaul right now and anybody who doesn't see that is either delusional or needs to be brought back into this reality with the rest of us sane people.
Iceland Volcano and Earthquakes:
Anybody notice how that right after Hollywood releases some supposidely 'unrealistic' weather related movie that something like this volcano happens? Earthquakes have been happening worldwide and now there is this volcano disrupting air traffic in Europe. The same thing happened after the Day After Tomorrow when Hurricane Katrina happened about 2 months later. The earthquakes started 2 months after 2012 was in wide release. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not but I think there might be something to my 2 month theory.
WCW World War 3 1995 Review:
I watched this with my best friend Art the other day and I honestly believe that other than Wrestle War '92 this is the best WCW pre-nWo show before Hall/Nash arrived in 1996. Slamboree '96 is the third best one and it took place literally less than 10 days before the Hall arrival and that's only for the brilliant Flair/Savage stuff.
Johnny B. Badd beat Diamond Dallas Page in a really good opening match for the TV Title. Lots of action, great moves by both men, and the storyline about Kimberly leaning toward Badd over Page made this a good one.
Big Bubba Rogers beat Hacksaw Jim Duggan in a Taped Fist Challenge after VK Wallstreet interefered and threw a chain into Bubba. Bobby Heenan's "Irish Setter" comment was hilarious in regards to Duggan. Typical brawling but it was pretty good for WCW at that time.
Bull Nakano and Akira Hokuto beat Mayumi Ozaki and Cutie Suzuki. Sonny Onoo was at ringside. Nakano/Hokuto dominated about 80% of this and the crowd was behind Ozaki/Suzuki after the beginning of the match beatdown. This was just okay.
Kensuke Sasaki beat Chris Benoit in the US Title match. Good wrestling but slow paced at times especially when Sasaki was in control. Good but nowhere near the DDP/Badd title match earlier on the show.
Lex Luger beat Randy Savage by submission. Savage had a heavily taped arm. Savage dominated almost the entire match until Luger lured him into a trap on the floor and put him in the Torture Rack on the floor before winning via armbar submission in a five minute match. Quick, but it set up the ending where Sting talked Luger into letting go of the hold after he kept it on after the bell.
Sting beat Ric Flair by submission. Typical Sting/Flair action but at a faster pace than usual. This was the only match on the undercard on par with Badd/Page. Great stuff here.
Randy Savage won the 60 man, 3 ring World War 3 battle royal to win the vacated WCW World Heavyweight Championship. This was really good. It was like complete chaos in all three rings. Ring 3 didn't have anyone get eliminated in over 10 mintues. Luger had the best strategy. He was just wandering around on the floor taking potshots at people. Now that's a champion that kids can be proud of. After it ended up with 10 men each in rings 2 and 3, they all went to ring 1. The only real surprises making it that far were Disco Inferno and Jumping Joey Maggs. How the hell did Joey Maggs last twenty minutes in there? Anyway it ended up going down to ten men. The finalists were Eddie Guerrero, Sting, Lex Luger, Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, One Man Gang, Paul Orndorff (which was a real surprise), and the Giant. Ended up with Hogan eliminating Luger, Sting, and Giant all at once and while Savage eliminated the Gang, Giant pulled Hogan to the floor. The distracted ref turned around, saw Hogan on the floor, and awarded the match to Savage. Hogan then came in and whined like a little kindergartener trying to get his way thus ruining Savage's celebration interview. Other than Hogan's whining and crying, this was really good stuff.
Saw Kick-Ass over the weekend and thought it was good but not as great as everyone is making it out to be. I thought that the action scenes were like something out of Ultraviolet and the characters were like teenage versions of the Watchmen. Some of the stuff in this movie I really liked but others I thought were just meh. I'm waiting for a bunch of teenage or tween mentally incompetant idiots to start dressing up in costumes and doing this shit on the news. The action scenes were good but some of the characters just annoyed me especially that kid who turned into Red Mist. Luckily the action and some of the one liners saved it from even more rippage from me.
TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze
I also watched the DVD of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze. How the hell did I like this when I was a kid? Seriously, the turtles spent the entire first scene was them fighting a gang of masked robbers while making intermittent sarcastic comments and using toys as weapons. Also, apparently according to the TMNT universe, apparently 70% of New Yorkers eat pizza and most of them also know how to do the martial arts. Then after that came an Ooze canister football fight which led to two evil mutants being created. However then came the horror of the Ninja Rap by Vanilla Ice.
Yeah, I think this scene says it all even though the opening fight scene is much worse than this one. In conclusion, only drink about ten beers before watching this just so you keep your sanity.
Ok, that's all for now.

Heel Out Rant about Wrestling:
All right, it's time to rant about wrestling. Firstly, I must say, that WWE has succeded in turning my favorite show, NXT, into basically Survivor in a wrestling ring. Last week they do the keg run and now this week they do the Microphone Talk contest. They even have a pros poll as well as eliminations which basically are modified tribal councils. What's next? An immunity idol? Wait, I've got it. A hidden immunity idol. I hope TNA doesn't get any ideas reading this after their key box unlocking crap match a few weeks back. Speaking of TNA, I'd like to thank the Hogan regime for months of hilarity. I swear, the only company that has been run in a worse direction over the past few years is Toyota. Hogan probably used to be an Enron CEO the way he's destroying the product. Let's not forget about Bischoff and Russo. They were the main reason WCW fell apart and most likely, along with the "genius" of Bulkamania and Dixie "Needs to see the Wizard to get a Brain" Carter, are going to be the main reasons TNA ceases to exist as a "sports entertainment company." I've said it for months on end and I'll say it again. Just because TNA isn't WWE doesn't mean it's good either. TNA is SHIT. You want a wrestling? Look to CHIKARA, ROH, DragonGateUSA, and countless others, not TNA. TNA has been turned into a joke in my opinion.
NBA Playoff Predictions:
Western Conference -
Thunder over LA Lakers 4-3, I'm predicting a massive upset here. I think Kobe's injuries are going to catch up with them and it'll lead to a collosal upset.
Mavericks over Spurs 4-2, I think that Dallas is going to demolish the Spurs. Spurs will win one or two at home tops but will get overmatched by the Mavs.
Suns over Trailblazers 4-1, From what I've seen Phoenix is like the Rams back in 1999. It's like a track meet in Phoenix and I think they'll wear out the Blazers pretty quick.
Jazz over Nuggets 4-3, This will be a close series but I have a feeling that the Jazz will pull it off in 7 games.
Suns over Thunder 4-2, Suns are going to wear out the Thunder with their fast paced style. Durant will make it interesting but it won't be enough.
Mavs over Jazz 4-3, This will be an extremely good series with Dallas winning it in seven games.
Suns over Mavs 4-2, Suns will make their 3rd NBA Finals after wearing out
Cavs over Bulls 4-1, Chicago has so much drama going on and Cleveland is so good that this is a no brainer.
Magic over Bobcats 4-1, I think the Bobcats will win one for the home crowd but that will be it.
Hawks over Bucks 4-1, This is becoming redundant. As you can tell, I don't think these will be as good as the Western Conference Tournament of Death that is going on.
Celtics over Heat 4-2, Boston is not as good as before but I think they're good enough to handle the Heat in 6 games.
Magic over Hawks 4-3, This is going to be the best series out East and I see it going 7 games. Winner of this is the team I think will make the Finals.
Cavs over Celtics 4-2, Celtics are going to be tired and the Cavs are a really good team so I predict Cavs in 6 games.
Magic over Cavs 4-3, I see history repeating itself as the Cavs implode in the Conference Finals yet again with the Magic making their 3rd NBA Finals Appearance to face the Suns who also will be in their 3rd Finals. Neither team has ever won the NBA Championship.
NBA Finals -
Suns over Magic 4-3, Yes, I'm going with the Suns for this. Biased, I know, but I've got a feeling that they're just going to turn the Playoffs into a track meet and wear everyone out until they FINALLY win the NBA Championship.
Great Moments in Wrestling History:
This one is one of my all time favorite wrestling moments. The first moment I'm going to cover on here is the Big Boss Man and Big Show Funeral incident that took place after Big Show's daddy died and Boss Man was tormenting Show about it. When I first saw this back in 1999, instead of booing and being mad over the angle, I was laughing my ass off over the Bluesmobile and the "drag queen" line by the Boss Man. CLASSIC wrestling at its finest.
South Park's 200th episode was a joke. It wasn't funny, the characters were all rehashed from previous episodes, and the only cool part was Mecha Streisand's upgrade at the end of the episode. THAT WAS IT. This was by far the worst episode this season. Totally unfunny complete garbage.
This made up for South Park. For those who don't know, Ugly Americans is set in an alternate reality where the residents of Hell and other strange creatures roam the world. Here's the synopsis. The world is enthralled by the Treegasm that is going to happen in Central Park so naturally the protaganist Mark is stuck handling it when his boss Twayne puts him in charge. Meanwhile his half-human, half-demon girlfriend Callie is shedding her demon skin and is on a sex binge to cool off the pain of her shedding. When Mark tells the male tree about how people interact sexually, he becomes a player and wants to sleep around. Mark then recruits his zombie roommate, Randal (who's penis has ran away), to tell him about his sexual experience. Seeing the dangers of this lifestyle, the male tree finally decides to stay monogamous. The ritual then ends badly with the male tree ejaculating prematurely due to the pressure and Callie melting a port-o-potty after sex with Mark to finally shed her skin. The ending was funny with the talk of the dangers of promiscious sex after all the chaos that went down the entire episode. Really made up for South Park which was a letdown after last week's brilliance.
Now for the movie reviews which is now just going to be a Movie Review. First on the list of movies that will be reviewed on here is the Sylvester Stallone movie entitled Cobra. Here is a clip from said movie. Try to watch this and not laugh whenever Stallone talks.
The moment the police chief said "Call the Cobra" four minutes into the movie I knew this was going to be full of laughs. First off the main character is a sociopath named Cobra who always wears sunglasses, has no personality other than funny catchphrases, lives like a Terminator robot, and only takes his sunglasses off to watch violent news stories. Don't believe me? Watch this. It's utterly hilarious. If you don't laugh watching this, then you need a personality transplant.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=401K11ux_TI&feature=related
I just realized that he puts his newspaper on the grill after only skimming over the first page and that he never takes his gloves off at all for half the movie, lol. When the news reporter says "mutilated" he takes notice by taking off his sunglasses. That was funny to me for some reason. His girlfriend at the start appears to be his handgun. When the sociopath Cobra finally is let in on the case, then comes this weird music video sequence with a modeling shoot using robots, a gang of psychopaths armed with big hunting knives, and Cobra wandering around the scummiest parts of town all at the same time. For some reason, every time I saw the robots I started laughing.
After this pointless crap it got good with an attempted murder scene by this wanna-be Terminator looking psychopath. Then it got stupid again with this Halloween 2 Hospital rip-off scene where the fake Terminator psychopath guy now turns into Michael Myers without the mask. He leaves bodies on beds and then attacks a nurse from under the bed before chasing down Laurie Strode...I mean, the model until she pulls the fire alarm and is safe. Then it got stupid again after Cobretti the Cobra unleashes his "army of psychopaths" theory on his idiot supervisors. This leads to the most overdramatic car chase scene in the history of cinema. They slow-mo'd EVERY jump the car did. EVERY JUMP. At this point instead of being like "Wow, that was awesome" I was staring at the television laughing my ass off over this stuff. Then, of course, the idiot police higher command people reprimand Cobretti the Cobra for turning the town into a "battlefield." Then, of course, they continue to let him do whatever he wants since he's a sociopath and won't listen to then anyway.
All of this leads to the final scene after, of course, Cobra and the model fall in love after she sees him pulling out various weapons and putting a scope onto one of his guns. That then leads to Stallone fighting about fifty people by himself after his partner gets shot. He then takes on the entire "New World" gang in a final battle including lots of explosions, some corny action movie dialogue, and minimal ammunition changes. At the end it...well, has the corniest ending song of all time. I thought Commando was bad but this ending is WORSE.
Overall: 2 out of 5 stars
This is seriously one of the most pointless action movies ever made. The only thing that saves it is that it's so funny. Anytime Stallone talks it's easy to make fun of it. Most notable of scenes to make fun of is the scene where he rips some Hispanic guy's shirt because he was double parked onto Cobra's parking spot, lol. But nothing tops the hilarity of the Cobra Lifestyle scene (the video of him in his apartment I posted earlier) and the Music Video scene. Those two scenes alone along with the over-dramatic car chase and the Cobra one-liners make this a cult classic just for the sheer hilarity of it all.
That's all for now. The chaos will resume again in a few days on here when I talk about the Tea Party and the Coffee Party, review TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze and maybe more movies, talk NHL/NBA Playoffs, and review the movie I go see this weekend at the theater.
First on my list is Ben Rapeslisberger. This guy is a piece of work. TWICE now he has been accused of sexually molesting a woman in the past two years. Looks like Big Ben can't keep it in his pants since he's a big, not very handsome looking sports star who thinks that he's above the law. I believe he did something this time around especially considering he had to read a prepared statement at his little press conference about it. What a phony this guy is.
Next is "The Sexy Lawman" Steven Seagal (yeah, that nickname is a play on the "Sexy Boy, Boy Toy" nickname that Shawn Michaels had in the early nineties) who apparently had sex slaves that he used for his pleasure. Honestly this story I think is a load of crap in comparison to the Big Ben one considering that she decided to use a "wait and see" approach in regards to it the incidents. That sent up a red flag to me. According to Seagal's people, she was fired for using drugs and is doing this as payback for that. If that is true, then this is sort of like that incident with the Duke Lacrosse team and the stripper a few years back that turned out to be a bunch of lies. I have a feeling that this will be the same type of deal. I think that this lady's full of crap. If Seagal was doing this for awhile then it would've come out a long time ago. He's no Tiger Woods if you catch my drift.
Now for my Hockey Playoff predictions for the NHL Playoffs that are starting today. Going to go with my gut on all of these. Ready? ... No? Well, I am and here's the predictions.
Round 1 -
Capitals over Canadiens 4-1, Capitals are going to roll in this series.
Penguins over Senators 4-3, This is going to be a close series but I think the Penguins are going to make another playoff run.
Sabres over Bruins 4-2, Sabres I think may be a dark horse team to win it all along with Phoenix out West.
Devils over Flyers 4-2, I think the Flyers may pull off two wins but Devils will prevent them from winning any more than that.
Round 2 -
Penguins over Capitals 4-3, The Penguins are going to pull out a 7 game upset over the top seed.
Sabres over Devils 4-3, Sabres in another close series pulling it out in 7 games.
Conference Finals -
Sabres over Penguins 4-2, The Penguins fail to make the NHL Stanley Cup Finals after the Sabres beat the defending champs in 6 games much to the shock of one Sidney Crosby.
Round 1 -
Sharks over Avalanche 4-1, I think the Sharks are going to win this series pretty easily. Colorado doesn't have the firepower to compete with them.
Coyotes over the Red Wings 4-2, Coyotes are going to win this and I think they'll make a run in round 2
Canucks over LA Kings 4-2, Going with the Canucks here in what I think will be a close series.
Blackhawks over Predators 4-3, For some reason I think this will be a closer series than it appears but still think Chicago will pull out the win.
Round 2 -
Coyotes over Sharks 4-3, I have a feeling about Phoenix and Buffalo. Let's see if I'm right or I'm way off.
Canucks over Blackhawks 4-2. Vancouver is another team I like but I also have a feeling that Chicago will be worn out from the Predators series and the Canucks will take advantage of it to make the Conference Finals.
Conference Finals -
Coyotes over Canucks 4-3, Phoenix wins another close series to make their first Stanley Cup finals. I'm really pulling for them because of what happened with them almost being moved to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada this past off-season.
Stanley Cup Finals -
Coyotes over Sabres 4-3, This may not seem like a great Stanley Cup Finals but I think it'll end up being one of the best of all time especially considering neither are really getting any press as being championship contenders.
NBA season ends tonight too. I'm hoping for a Suns win tonight over Utah so they'll be the number 3 team out west. NBA Predictions later in the week.
Wrestling is getting a little better here lately but I honestly miss WCW since TNA is complete garbage and CHIKARA/ROH don't get any television time out here so I have to Youtube vids of them. And honestly, is anyone else sick of Bulk Blogan and Eric Pissoff ruining TNA? You can't blame this on Russo. He's been there for YEARS and it NEVER EVER got this bad.
Saw Clash of the Titans and I really, really liked it. Might go see it again this weekend. I heard it is crap in 3-D though. Also the actress that plays Io is SUPER HOT and the action scenes/humanoid monstrosities/special effects are awesome in this movie.
Date Night was surprisingly good. I don't normally like Steve Carrell movies but I liked this one. It had just enough comedy and action to keep it going which is a good thing. Tina Fey is as funny as she is pretty which is a plus since she gets a lot of screen time.
200th South Park is on tonight. There's NO CHANCE IN HELL of me missing this after the brilliance that was last week's Facebook episode. That was the greatest episode in South Park History last week. Kip Drordy, Tron spoofage, and general rippage of Facebook was the greatest thing I've ever seen on television.
Lost was awesome last night. Best episode all season in my opinion. Any episode about Hurley is always good. Apparently, according to Lost, I need to get kissed by a mysterious female psychiatric patient who apparently knows me to see the alternative timeline that I never knew about until then. I wonder if that's true? Hmmmm....
That's all for now. Going to watch The Terminator and Cobra this week for my DVD reviews. Plus I need some material to rip into on here. This is Heel Heat after all...
