Sigh

Anyone else want to remember when TNA didn't suck so much?

Anyone here play Fire Pro Wrestling?

I spent three hours last night on my GBA game (the first one) updating all the rosters, moving wrestlers to whatever promotions they were in now, or if they were deceased or fully-retired from the wrestling biz to the Legends section, which involved a LOT of looking up on Wikipedia for info.


By the end of it, I got pretty sad at just how many performers I had to move to the Legends section. We lost a lot of guys in those ten years....

(also, if anyone has a full formula for Ted Dibiase?)

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

I wonder if it's a coincidence that as Joe has gotten fatter TNA has gotten worse.
Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

STRONGLY urge you, If you have a PS2, to invest in Fire Pro Wrestling Returns. With the exception of having no WWE characters, it's everything the GBA version is and more. Deepest wrestling video game avalible. Almost a sim, in fact. I love No Mercy, but it's a totally different experience.

STAY AWAY FROM THE XBOX 360 GAME. It has more in common with the POJ that Hogan has coming out than real Fire Pro.

Joe is Samoan. Thats a common problem with Samoan wrestlers.

I had the same exact reaction. and if id neen paying attention to Raw over the past month instead of just reading result I would have been there live.
Touch passion when it comes your way, it's rare enough has it is. Don't walk away by when it calls you by name. Love isn't a committment, or a burden, or whatever you think it is... It's a feeling you have for someone. A feeling that words can never explain. Whenever you would put your life on the line to protect that person, that's love. Whenever you stay awake all night thinking about that person, that's love. When you're with that person, and the minutes seem like hours, that's love. It's never love when you have to think about it.


Look Up!

I imported the Japanese version a long time ago, but I rarely use it anymore because I'm never sure what leads where anymore.

Derrick Bateman, Percy Watson and Darren Young have been added to the SD roster.

Reunite the South Beach Boys and add Brodus to the pack and we're GOLDEN.

What WWE really needs to do is give Percy Watson the glasses, so that he can have the VISION baby. You know what I'm sayin? If you do then gimme a oh yeah. uh uH UH.... OH YEAH!!!

BTW
The company need to drop the "game show competition" gimmick on NXT and call it what it is. A try out for new talent and un-used establish talent. Or FCW 2.0.

If you've been watching NXT lately, they did.

Regal's the GM but they don't call him as such. Striker remains host.

Reks & Hawkins, Kaitlyn, Johnny Curtis and plenty of other underutilized talent are on NXT, actually having storylines.

Regal's promised a new direction for NXT under his leadership, so NXT is unofficially the third brand.

Which works for me just fine; I'm just glad they seem to be admitting that the competition aspect is a farce...

...though they didn't outright dismiss it, did they?

Nope, but adding two of its contestants to the SD roster recently points to the end of that competition.

Ugh. Goddammit. Cena's actually no-selling Rocky's promos. THAT IS NOT HOW WRESTLING WORKS, CENA.

The much-advertised Teddy Long-run Raw was run of the mill. I'm guessing the Ace-run SD will actually matter.

Next week, THE ROCK CONCERT.

And Cena raps, I guess.
