    The Soaps Thread

    The new Eastenders set has cost them £87 million to build. Where are they spending that?! Have they created a gold plated statue of Felix the Jew outside the barbers. There should be mass outrage really. Its fucking Eastenders? How can anyone justify spending that much on a shite soap opera set where all people do is look at their shoes and dont move. You could have cardboard up behind the actors and nobody would notice. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-46521700

    Paul Hardcastle's Domestic Football 18/nuh nuh nuh 19

    I like how Dave Watson is basically fisting Joe Royle.

    Swear to God, this is the best shirt I've ever seen.
  4. Welcome back to Walford Mary. Maybe just for a one off, but what an icon. Best character in it when it started. 30 years between appearances might be some kind of record surely? I'll be selling these for 4 quid cheaper than Ralphy, if anyone wants to PM me.

    Dynamite Kid Passed Away

    Probably more to do with not wanting to overly promote the death of someone who was on CNN talking about putting a gun to his wifes chin than anything to do with Vince. But Dynamite Kid did make fun of Vince to his face in front of the New Japan locker room in the late 80s. No idea if McMahon remembers that or not, but apparently Vince said "when you coming back to work for us, Tom?", trying to be nice and Dynamite replied "how 'boot fookin' never." Or something like that. Dynamite will probably get in the legacy wing of the Hall of Fame eventually. Where they mention him in passing along with loads of other people they dont want to devote TV time to.

    Dynamite Kid Passed Away

    He was still in the game in 93/94. That was post WWF boom, where he was trading on posters as "from the British Bulldog's the Dynamite Kid." in an attempt to get the punters in. So he was still working out and trying to look the part. The 1996 appearance was probably straight from the pub, a good offer during a time he needed a few quid and hadnt worked out since his last match. Shave his head and get him off the steroids in 1986 and he'd probably look like he did in his last match.

    Dynamite Kid Passed Away

    Those tights he was wearing are a cheaper version of Davey Boy's SummerSlam 92 ones aren't they? Harry Smith did an interview with Sean Mooney recently and mentioned two incidents that rarely get brought up. That time Dynamite gave Davey Boy's brother a good kicking after their breakup. And the other was Dynamite getting a proper good kicking off some cowboys in a pub in Calgary. Proper kicked the shit out of him badly. Which considering how bad his back was, its a surprise that never put him in a wheelchair earlier than he did.

    Dave Meltzer

    Hogan has before. So has Vince. When they are at their lowest, they reach out to the wrestling "media." That's how wrestling works. When you are flying, you dont need anyone. When you're on your arse, you need help. Everyone knows a lot of Meltzer's sources anyway. You can tell in his reporting. Jim Ross, Konnan, Court Bauer, Dave Lagana, Chris Jericho, Paul Heyman, Jim Cornette are all Meltzer stooges and known for it. You dont think that Jericho match would have gotten 5 stars if he wasn't Meltzers mate do you? Oh, as for mid-90s, Zane Bresloff was Meltzers top source in WCW.

    In defence of Gareth Hale, and to a lesser extent - Pace

    They went on for a good 10 years, so pretty much ran out of ideas after a few series. But the first 2 series were fucking good. Much funnier than a lot of comics who give them shit. A lot of their ideas were original, too. Harry Enfield copied that dubbed movies sketch, and was lauded for it, but Hale and Pace's version is much funnier. They were class. Good physical comics, when they needed to be. Hilarious song parodies. I'll happily add a story to the physically altercations thread if anyone disagrees.

    Dave Meltzer

    I do think Bischoff is unfairly shit on because of how useless he became late 98 onwards. To me, he was always like an old footy manager who won the league by bringing in new ideas from La Liga and Serie A and spent a load of money on experienced players. From about 93 to 97, he was very much on the ball. Hiring Zane Bresloff, who was WWF's live events promoter, bringing in Hogan, flying to Japan every other week to take with their promoters, signing all those Luchadors, agreesively going at Big Balls Vince. Once his motivation had dried up, and other people lapped him, he was pretty much spent. Post 99, he was like Ron Atkinson or someone. Pretty knackered, well out of touch with modern times and if Celebrity Big Brother ran him up he'd go in for a few quid. But he really did put the graft in for a few years. You just have to look at the state of him in 99. He looked like he hadnt slept for months during that Flair angle.
