It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

In Taker’s case, I think him tweaking his style to eliminate the dives and any top rope stuff and he’d be fine. In Goldberg’s case, he needs to hang up the boots, then either burn them or bronze them.

 

I am going to have to disagree. He just hugged up the Tombstone. The Tombstone. A move that is the centerpiece of his repertoire which he has done literally over a thousand times. A move that is usually very easy to do in an incredibly safe way. He is done.

So far, Jon Moxley, Shingo Takagi and Shibata's new client KENTA have announced their entries into this year's G1 Tournament.

 

This is gonna be a good year for wrestling just from the G1 alone. Cole/Gargano and the just concluded Naito/Ibushi match better hold on to their butts.

Don't forget Jericho could surprise us by entering G1.  Damn.  Who'd a thunk that we'd be talking about Chris Jericho like he's the king of wrestling right now.

A potential Moxley/Suzuki match is going to have a high body count of Young Lions, and potentially kill the wrestling internet.

OK, this is pretty big:

 

https://twitter.com/...7878455301?s=20

 

Apparently, Gedo quit as NJPW's booker right before Dominion.

 

If that night was indicative of Gedo no longer being the booker, the ending with the booing and calling for refunds is a big red flag.

More like they didn't like the Western nature of the ending. They like the traditional Face-gives-a-speech-at-the-end and they felt ripped off not getting a word out of either Tana or Okada.

Remember Vince can do anything he want to you.  From hugging up your push to playing mean spirited pranks on you.  But lord help you if you try and get him.

 

In other news, Impact let Scarlett Bordeaux go.  Which is a shame because she helped give us back the intergender matches.  Also on his way out is probably her boyfriend Killer Kross who's becoming something of a name in Impact.

Sooooooo, during a Main Event taping Sarah Logan accidentally cracked Dana Brooke wide open by smashing her head against the turnbuckle. Looks like the two are improvising and trying to squeeze an angle out of it, but I feel like maybe Dana should try to take a break for a bit, because I have a hard time believing this wasn't a concussion.

 

Also, as a footnote to this, Sarah posted footage on her instagram with the caption "if I had to do it over, I would of done it slower." In character, that reads as "I want her to suffer more" and out-of-character, it reads "Whoops, I totally overshot this, I am sorry and it won't happen again". Clever.

They let a talent go who wanted to leave and that's a bad thing? It's not like they're burying her on air like the TNA of old would have, or adding 6 months to her deal out of unadulterated spite like the WWE.

Considering the hype they put up for her debut, I'd consider it a bad thing.  Especially seeing as how she was complaining about how there's no direction for certain people backstage.
