Just watched the Kane/Undertaker HIAC match for the World Heavyweight Championship (it appeared on YouTube's recommendations) and haven't stopped laughing since hearing Michael Cole describe Paul Bearer as "The Father of Destruction." 

My only other observation being "LOL The Deadman got beaten by a torch." What a horrible finish.

March 26 "I'm pleased to announce the expansion of my pub empire. After years of war, I've taken over the Rovers Return and tonight, you'll see me on BBC and ITV." "''old on, mum.

I heard they tore the house down so much, Will Ospreay set up a GoFundMe for it.

One of Earthquake's children posted a picture on Reddit, and this great story about him was the top reply.

I've somehow ended up watching a bunch of 2004/2005 clips of RAW as this one Youtube channel is constantly in my recommendations, why is everyone near the top in a suit and looking like shit in one? Except Batista who's been looking awesome.

Also, sweat shows up so badly in those shirts, it's pretty gross.

Was this not around the time they first brought in a dress code for the wrestlers, where they had to wear suits all the time?

I've always had a disliking of guys wearing suits if it doesn't suit the gimmick, Horsemen, Evolution, MJF etc suit it cause you can imagine that's how they would dress, bragging about the cost etc

Faces shouldn't wear them with few exceptions like Batista.

This suit Davey Boy Smith wore a few years earlier was hilarious. Made him look 3 foot 4.

Also makes him look like a shite mafia member, looks like he's going to shoot Lee Strasberg in an airport

Just watched Goldberg vs Steiner vs Nash from New Blood Rising.

What was Goldberg "shooting" all about, he refuses to take Jackknife from Nash, walks out the ring and meets Russo who he tells to "fuck off"

Commentary is talking about Bill going into Buisness for himself, and asking what Nash n Steiner will do as it's now "off script", but are both pro's so should be able to wing it.

I know it's just standard Russo but this is so bizarre to watch, really can't see what it was to achieve

Wasn’t it the first PPV after the Hogan/Jarrett incident? Probably playing up to that at a guess

Was that a shoot? I always just assumed it was classic Russo "worked shoot" bullshit...

I was dead into WCW at the time as they showed Nitro on Bravo, I remember reading about the match in Power Slam and thinking it sounded shite, given it was barely mentioned in the weeks afterwards I imagine a fair few backstage thought the same 

The commentary was the worst thing about it, anyone watching who actually believed it was real would've realised it was bollocks when Schiavone started going on about improvising and the design of the match

I always took it as being a Russo worked shoot bit of nonsense. Wasn’t there an interview in the build with Nash (I want to say that he was talking to Hudson) which was part kayfabe, part shoot (which was the style at the time) and Nash basically said “I’m winning that match, and Goldbergs taking a powerbomb”

Just seen Jericho's tweet in the election thread and it got me thinking, is there any wrestler who was popular twenty years ago who hasn't turned out to be a knob in some way? (Yes I know Rock is the obvious answer but I thought that Ballers was, ironically, a bag of wank) 

Austin twatted Debra and said 'see you down the road' loads on that programme he did, Foley went pervy as fuck, Jericho's just an embarrassment, Hogan's racist, Benoit goes without saying plus him and Malenko looked like the Time Bandits when they were running after Austin backstage at Survivor Series 2000
