    Disney and Other Theme Parks aka PB's fairgrounds for young girls

    Going to Disneyland next month. I went last year, but that was on my own and I'm going with people this time, so I expect it'll be more fun, but take longer to get on rides. We've got a four day non-hopper pass for the parks... I'd have preferred a two or three day hopper pass, I reckon. I'm not sure that there's four days worth of stuff in there for me. Last time I just went on Guardians Mission Breakout loads of times and didn't go on much of anything in Disneyland, is the Matterhorn any good? Also at the moment, we've no plans to go to Universal but I quite liked it last time. Mind, I got free tickets then - if I'd paid, I think I might've been disappointed that it's basically a weaker version of the Orlando Universal. Saying that, the tour ride is great. I'm staying at the King's Inn, a couple of blocks away from Disneyland. Any recommendations around there for stuff to do/places to eat?

    The Why Don't You Get a Job Thread

    After spending most of my adult life freelancing and temping, I've had the same 9-5 job for over three years. And I'm leaving for a new one, not got start date yet because it's all pending reference and background checks. But I'm a bit scared. My current job is very familiar and I'm quite confident at it, although the place has gone to shit this year (hence leaving). The new one is something I've never done before, and it's sciencey. I don't even have a C grade in GCSE science. I'm also sad to be leaving my friends at my current job, but again, because it's gone to shit, a lot of them have left already. And I'll have a couple of friends at the new job, one of whom is starting the same day as me and in the same team. In general, though, how do y'all deal with starting a new job? I know that I can't just go in and be an absolute knob straight away, so I'll just not talk for the first year.

    Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    To be fair, WWE don't often do the "HISTORIC ANNOUNCEMENT COMING ON RAW" teaser, do they? When I saw this one, it just made me think it is a very TNA move.

    Best things to watch on the network?

    Mad really that they only ever show shitty quality fancam footage of the MSG Curtain Call when they had the Raw cameramen covering it all, isn't it? And that they usually only ever show photographs of house show title changes rather than the TV-quality footage they've definitely got of them all? You'd think Bret Hart would've noticed all the cameras recording his house show matches he had with the Bulldogs that were definitely the best matches ever and Hulk Hogan couldn't follow them but nobody would ever see, or that Shawn and Razor would've noticed the cameras when they were having their house show matches every night that were definitely better than their WrestleMania match. For matches that good, it's mad that WWE are just sitting on them. The odd bits of footage that exist from sources other than TV tapings are sporadic and usually of poor quality, hence your example being one they happened across almost by chance in a tub of poorly-marked shit from WCW. The lack of cameras at events where there weren't cameras certainly limits their suitability for finding gems to put on the WWE Network. Which is why the majority of stuff in the Hidden Gems section is developmental matches, a current star's tryout match as a young jobber, or a WWF star being sent to wrestle for an ECW/SMW/UPW group. There's maybe around a handful of clips in there that aren't from TV tapings of some kind. The cost of recording for TV means that even Raw tapings aren't profitable as live events. If WWE brought the production crew to every event, it would've financially crippled them years and years ago.

    Fucking hell, they found some old WCW footage two years ago and put it on the network? You're bang on, they must have a million secret classic matches then - they're only uploading shitty dark matches as 'gems' because of a conspiracy against Real Fans who want to see Real Wrestling.

    Which is what you're doing now with James Gunn.

    Are you one of the ones who thinks that they have the TV cameras running at the live events?

    And it's nonsense. Millions of Americans moan about Trump constantly.

    The lack of cameras is a bit of a stumbling block.

    Paying for your own flights to get exposure - Where do you stand.

    Only a fraction of the talent on a card are going to bring in punters. The rest are there to make up the numbers, and hopefully put on a performance that impresses those punters enough to remember their name. Promoters aren't flying lads from the second group across oceans, so the only way they're getting that shot is to book their own travel.

    It was definitely reported at the time as him being removed from the Hall of Fame, and he's talked about it as such interviews since then.

    Twenty Years Ago: King of the Ring 1998

    From Meltzer: The top ten most-watched shows on the WWE Network for the past week were: 1. Ride Along with Rusev, English and Lana; 2. 2018 Money in the Bank; 3. NXT on 6/27; 4. UK from London second show; 5. UK from London first show; 6. Something Else to Wrestle with from 6/27 on Big Evil Undertaker; 7. The Hardys: Woken; 8. NXT Takeover Chicago; 9. 205 Live from 6/26; 10. WrestleMania 2018. I’m not sure why, if there was a podcast about it or a story, but the 1998 King of the Ring PPV cracked the top 20 and it’s rare for something in that era ever to do that.
