  1. From being in my megafan mode as a kid, and going to Summerslam 92, I stopped watching around, I want to say 95/96 time when I discovered that being a wrestling fan was detrimental to the chances of me fingering Sally Tunnicliffe, who was the best looking lass at our school. Then, early in 2000, I notice that Channel 4 were showing the Rumble. After getting in from the pub at about half 11(remember when they were only allowed to open until 10:30 on a Sunday?) I decided to order a couple of Kebabs and watch some of that "Crap Wrestling" while I ate them. I still weren't won over until the Triple H/Cactus Jack match came on. Firstly, I couldnt believe that these two guys were main eventers, as last time I watched, Triple H was a VERY midcard snob, and Mankind was, well, i'm not sure what he was supposed to be. By the end of that match however, it was safe to say that I was hooked once again. Being older, and now not giving a fuck what people would think if I was a fan(Sally Tunnicliffe had got fat and had 2 kids by now anyway) I've watched regularly ever since.
  2. What's folks opinions on the "Snatch" tv series? I'm half way through it and loved it at the beginning, but started to lose interest half way through. Is it worth sticking with?
  3. How did I forget that Shaq was in the Battle Royal last year? I watched the bastard hing live and have totally forgot about him being there...
  4. It really was a gift from the gods that this site went down for the Knights, considering some of the comments made previously in this thread. I feel so sorry for them though. I can't imagine what it feels like to have your daughter life choices so closely scrutinised like this...
  5. Thanks for the advice on the wrestling add ons all! I'm not holding my breath, but does anyone know an add on that shows the t'old Video Nasties? I own the majority of them, but im looking to try and watch them all over a few weeks, and need to way to fill in the ones I don't and can't get hold of...
  6. What was the story behind this? I was a lapsed fan at the time so missed it. Was it done to generate that kind of a reaction, or did they expect the crowd pop? I don’t know that this has ever been made public to be honest, despite watching the event 50 times and listening to about 10 hours worth of podcast content about it I’m none the wiser. JR gives it the old “only in America and the WWF will you find this kind of freedom of expression!” after the song finishes and the boos erupt, so maybe that was an attempt at damage limitation suggesting they weren't expecting it. It just feels so surreal to me. If there is two things the American's hold sacred it's their flag and national anthem. So for such a patriotic company to blatantly murder said anthem is just, well, random...

  8. That devil/demon thing in Spawn was shocking. its mouth didn't even move to the words...
  9. Rick Steiner having an argument with Chucky off Childs Play... Wrestlecrap at its finest, and a real "what the fuck have I just watched" moment, for me anyway.
  10. Ive signed just signed up again, as I saw there was a network add on. But when ive gone on it, the live stream doesnt work. Will have to just play it using a web browser. I prefer using kodi as I can use a remote to control it, but never mind...
  11. Ive asked in the on topic questions thread, but thought it would be better here... Is there any add ons for Wrestling? Ive got the network, but the add on doesnt work for me and fancy watching the PPV tonight. All I can get work on the add on is some of the on demand stuff...
  12. Is there any decent Kodi add ons that show the PPV's live and have the back catalogues? I used to have the network but let the subscription laps due to not watching it, but really fancy giving Fast Lane a go...
  13. I had my little career change forced on me due to disability. I was an I.T. tech and had a nice secure job and although it wasn't what i really wanted to do, I had a Mrs and kids to support. When I developed a disability that reduced my mobility down to virtually nothing, I asked the company for support and requested that I were moved to a desk job. Turns out the company were wankers, who whilst appearing on the surface to be helping me adapt to what was a life changing situation, were actually plotting to get rid of me as I were now too much hassle for them. They went as far as logging into my system and removed random call backs I had set so they could discipline me to get me to quit. They also "lost the key for the lift in the building to make it more difficult for me to get in. Eventually things came to a head I was asked to leave. Luckily, I had a colleague who I really got on with and wanted to leave anyway, so he gave evidence at my tribunal and I got a big payout for constructive dismissal and discrimination. Despite the lump sum I had received, I still needed a new career. I decided that as I've always loved the horror genre, I'd start to write about it and review the films. Started as just something to keep me occupied and while away the many spare hours I now had and try and fend off depression. I ended up going freelance as a copywriter, and met some top lads who ran a horror site that I now help run. It was through helping run this site that I met a lot of genre film makers and distribution companies. It took time, but after collaborating with them on numerous projects, I was offered a job with one of the distributers and have worked with them ever since. I have to say, its now my dream job. I get to meet and work with some big names in the genre, as well as contribute to keeping an industry I'm passionate about ticking over.
  14. I'm from Barnsley, and as such we have a very distinctive accent. For example, instead of hole, we pronounce it "oil". Like "I've dropped my keys in that 'oil" instead of "Ive dropped my keys in that hole"... One day, my mam decided to give me a talk on contraception. Her conversation started with... "Have you learn't about 'coil at school", asking about the contraceptive thing that women have fitted. My answer, was "We have learn about industry and mining"... I thought she was on about Coal, which we have always pronounced "coil", and she still takes the piss out of me to this day!
  15. I always thought the tab just stopped a tape being taped over?
