It's scary how you and I think alike sometimes.

A friend of mine posted that Paul Bearer died on his FB account and I responded with "Kane did it."  :lol:

I listened to the F4W podcast while shoveling, they mentioned that not only was a he a real-life mortician before he got into wrestling, but that after his WWE run ended, he went "back" to mortuary.  He said he felt that it was his calling in life, and that he took joy by doing what he could to make people happy when going through trying times.  He said that when he was recognized at a funeral, he felt that it took people's minds off of their sorrow for at least a little while.

He sounds like he was a mighty fine human being.

I can't believe he was so young. I thought he had to be at least 65.

they said he's had a lot of health problems over the years.  Even managers die young in this business (Gary Hart, Oliver Humperdink come to mind).

i'm guessing that Cena beats Rock and moves into another program with Punk.  And Alberto beats Swagger, with Ziggler cashing in and winning the title at WM.  Thus setting up ADR vs. Dolph, or a 3 way.

the only other match I'm guessing they add to WM is Shield vs. Show/Shamus/Orton, which leads to some sort of battle between the SSO trio.

supposedly Ryback is turning heel after WM and feuding with Cena. I don't like the sound of it.

Ryback is a generic nothing without the crowd chanting Feed Me More.

And I see the blind Cena love continues strong. Enjoy Once in a Lifetime II.

huh...I don't see any blind Cena love anywhere.

maybe your generic hate is blinding you.

this isn't a "with us or against us" situation.

mark my words.

6 months from now, Jack Swagger turns on Zeb Colter and embarks on a 10 year career as the new Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

super-extra-over Patriotic Face, a title here and there, but no real significant title reigns.

i think he'd take that.

i am just going on what i've seen and what i've heard ... in that his in-ring work as a grappler is solid, but obviously needs to improve on his mic work.  but i think this is a good step.

I think it will be longer than six months.  It should be able to work as long as a Democrat is President.

I think Lesnar has proven that a guy doesn't need good mic skills as long as he can kick ass.  Lesnar works as long as Heyman works and Swagger can work as long as Coulter works (as long as Coulter WORKS).

The 'Attitude Era' mode is fun and it definitely sparks some nostalgia.

The gameplay isn't too bad. I love the roster depth. Definitely one of the best as of recent times. Still no Smackdown games though. I also wish it had a story mode like the Smackdown games too.

Bubba Ray is the new TNA World Champion, no complaints.  He's really improved over the last few years.  Now hopefully he's a transition back to Roode.

I know I shouldn't have laughed but Punk stealing the urn and interrupting the memorial twice in one night was such a dick move. In a good heel way.

It was AWESOME. Just hearing Punk's music rip into the ceremony was excellent.

yeah, but having Punk job to Kane was terrible terrible booking.  They're going with "tune it to watch Taker get his revenge" instead of "tune in to see if Punk can beat UT."  Apparently the writers are convinced nobody will buy Punk as a serious threat to defeat UT.

like i said, he really improved, and the slow build they did to turn him was actually pretty impressive.  The sad part is that they appear to be building to Hogan vs. Ray.
