    That's my KofiMania dreams dashed, then. My new hope is for New Day vs Evolution.

    The Official UKFF RAW Thread...

    The Shield was definitely a good one, but I was meaning callups from NXT in the Network era - before that, there wasn't the expectation that we should already know the developmental talent. Becky and Charlotte's introductions were crap, there was just a speech about the women's revolution and then they were assigned to awkward stables.

    The Official UKFF RAW Thread...

    Which NXT call-ups have been any good? I feel like they're almost always rubbish, especially with the mainstays whose gimmick is "wrestler." Elias and Enzo & Cass were alright, because the acts were one-note enough that you could 'get' them straight away. Owens and Zayn had a good platform with the John Cena open challenges as well. But what others were decent? Balor?

    But he created his own gimmick and got it over, that's why WWE buried him.

    Just watched Fighting with my Family. Enjoyed it a lot! Florence Pugh is lovely, as is Nick Frost - the whole family are super charming. I’ve never liked Lena Headey in anything before, but loved her in this. Zak’s story is great.

    The (mostly bad) films of Kevin Smith

    I loved the script when I was 20, but not a big fan of the film. I've lost interest in Kevin Smith's work in general over the last ten years.

    Elimination Chamber is tomorrow

    That's the only possible outcome that would be consistent with her character. If only they still knew how to promote wrestling, she'd do this on every Raw and SmackDown until the end of time.

    I mostly agree because Bray Wyatt is undeniably an utter turd, but one of the few times he has been good was against Daniel Bryan. Different dynamic now, of course, but I'd still like to see him have a proper go as a singles babyface. If they're not going with Cena or Kofi, I would still rather see Bryan defend against Wyatt than against any of the other EC guys. There's a natural feud there with Bryan stealing his lackeys, but they both seem to have the same philosophy of hating corporations and loving farms.

    I find it hard to suspend disbelief. The performances are quite theatrical, as are the sets. And the writing. I've just no appreciation for the style of the era. I like stuff with naturalistic dialogue and/or grand spectacle, and I don't find much of either in the black and white times. There may well be lots of black and white films I'd like, but I've found no sign of them yet. I also hate all Wes Anderson films that I've seen.

    Don't hate just because Kofi's got great conditioning. He stays ready!

    The likelihood is that they say the "PURE SPORTS BUILD" stuff for no reason other than that's what you're supposed to say when you're coming out with a new wrestling promotion. Any start-up is a bit hamstrung as far as expectations, because the sentiment online since for years has been "WWE NEEDS TO BRING BACK THE ATTITUDE ERA RING OF HONOR JAPANESE WORKRATE" despite that not being a coherent thing. It's all just confused between people's memories of when they enjoyed wrestling (attitude era) and the stuff Dave Meltzer promotes as excellent. But WWE has spent the last five to ten years morphing more into ROH-style workrate wrestling, and it's boring as fuck for a weekly TV show. And TNA has spent a decade now rehashing attitude era type trash, and nobody cares for that either. And the stuff that really entertains jaded fans is the silly stuff that laughs at kayfabe, like New Day (for a while) or Santino or the BTE comedy. But as you've said, the different philosophies can't really co-exist in the same show. They might not do the wacky comedy on the actual shows, but if they don't have any of that, it'll be a letdown for a lot of their fanbase, me included. They've got some job ahead of them.

    There's no way Cody would've said that in person. At best, he'd have said "Do your rethearch fuckfaith."

    I'm such a philistine, I can't watch black and white films. The only one I can tolerate at all is Night of the Living Dead, and even then only if it's playing on a TV for a few seconds in another film.

    Hasn't he done non-WWE bookings over the last several years anyway? His "you know, Jesus, you know" interview doesn't look like something WWE would sanction, and there was a spell (maybe after the Bray Wyatt or Roman Reigns match) where he did a few adverts or bike shows or something as Mark Calaway.

    Regional Dialect Quiz

    Mine's pretty similar to Accident Prone's, just slightly wider, and just below the word Wolverhampton. I also have a similar little bump in the northwest, where I lived for about eight years.
