  1. That sounds awful, but thinking about it... how many wrestlers were made stars by a Rumble win over the years? There's Batista in 2005 and Benoit in 2004... but most Rumble winners over the last 20+ years had already been main eventers, with the Rumble win just adding to their resume. 2003- Brock Lesnar- already a former WWE Champion, 2002- Triple H- multi-time WWE Champion, 2001- Stone Cold- winning his 3rd Rumble, 2000- The Rock- former WWE Champion, hottest star in the company, 1999- Mr McMahon- I mean... his biggest wrestling accolade, for sure., 1998- Stone Cold- already well on the rise, with the big main event level feud with Bret Hart, the main focus of weekly Raws, 1997- Stone Cold- yeah, maybe?, 1995/1996- Shawn Michaels- pre-Boyhood Dream, plus he pioneered the "two feet touching the floor" rule. So in 25 years we've got maybe 2 or 3 people made a star with a Rumble victory.
  2. Would be the most sensible, logical way to go. So watch them chuck Mandy Rose vs. Alexa Bliss and Viking Raiders vs. OC on the pre-show and the rest happens on the main card.
  3. I'm pretty sure that's what JR is doing with Jungle Boy, essentially. The first couple of times he called Jungle Boy matches, he was calling him "Jack Perry" and "Jungle Jack", and most of wrestling Twitter shouted him down for cocking up an AEW star's name. Then, as the weeks have gone, he's kept calling him "Jungle Jack Perry" and "Jungle Boy Jack Perry". He's most certainly read the criticism of him getting the name wrong, he's made comments here and there referencing it, but he keeps doing it. So I think JR is coming from the angle of, "hey, we've got a talented kid with a well-known Hollywood name for a dad, why aren't we using it more?" They've started talking about Luke Perry more in Jungle Boy features as well. Seems strange that he's managed to get a handle on everyone's name by now except Jungle Boy. Besides Emi Sakura, anyway.
  4. I feel like he's always been pretty crap. Joe Rogan did a decent job over the years keeping him in check. He's had some shockers though. One that sticks out for me is the Rousey/Holm fight, Holly is destroying Ronda, and Goldberg says something like "It takes a lot of energy being a rockstar", and Rogan shoots him down with "It's nothing to do with being a rockstar, she's getting punched in the face!" Not the exact quotes but it's along those lines. This is a great thread, Wand, some fights I remembered, others I didn't, but I'm using them all in my Favourites list on Fight Pass so I can have one hell of a binging session. Keep it up man!
  5. I expected Conor to beat Cowboy, but I didn't think it would be that quick and easy. One thing I haven't seen mentioned much is that Conor's power seems to be there now at 170. He looks much more muscular now than he did for the Diaz fights, and came in at 170 exact for this fight, when he was underweight for both Diaz fights. I know Cowboy seems to lose the big ones and that's what happened here again (the cries of a fixed fight in some circles are laughable though), but Cerrone has taken big shots from Robbie Lawler and Matt Brown without going down. And Conor has gone from throwing everything he could at Diaz to shutting Cowboy down with head strikes immediately. If anything, I thought the old "glass body" of Cerrone would come into play, but it wasn't needed. I actually like Conor's chances more against Masvidal after that performance. I think Usman would kinda ragdoll him around though.
  6. The one with "Wanted Dead Or Alive" behind it? It's the PPV opening video leaked early, awesome stuff. https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/01/ufc-246-video-opening-dana-white-bon-jovi-conor-mcgregor-donald-cerrone Would love Cowboy to win, spent the last few days watching all his fights, from WEC to today on Fight Pass, but the pattern is undeniable- Cerrone gets to a certain level, looking like a world beater... then he gets sparked in the first. Happened in his last fight with Gaethje and Conor carries similiar power. Conor via "Nobody can take dat left" in the first.
  7. Love that one-two punch at the top of the card. JDS is one of my favourite heavyweights ever, and Blaydes is one of my least favourite, so there's a nice heel/face dynamic there. It's not just because of Blaydes' style either. It's more the reaction he gives on social media to anyone that dares criticise him. Instead of taking it in his stride, he chucks his toys out of the pram anytime he's called "boring". I get that he's focused on winning and that's all he cares about, fair play. But a lot of the top guys, especially now, understand that there is an entertainment component to all of this. It is a spectator sport, after all. If Conor McGregor is at one end of the spectrum, Curtis Blaydes is at the other. Besides, how can anyone root against JDS? He comes across like the nicest man on the planet. What a guy. I like Rafael dos Anjos too, and would like to see him get on track against Chiesa. Fully backing the Brazilians this time out. Chiesa is no joke though, been a beast since going up to 170.
