Me: Man, I'd love to have that new The Fiend title he had in the Firefly Funhouse.

WWE Shop: We have it for sale! Handmade by Tom Savini! Buy it now!

Me: Oh man, it's probably 150-200 dollars. But it would be so cool. Well, let's go buy it.

WWE Shop: $6,499.99, please. US only.

Me: Oh not shipping to Canada. Oh well.

It's "meticulously hand crafted" and "no two will be alike". I can't imagine the materials are worth this much, so maybe it's because it comes from Tom Savini? I would think $500 would be steep but reasonable all factors considered, but it feels like they pulled $6499.99 out of thin air.

On the plus side, I assumed they would do a "shave Daniel Bryan" storyline, which I felt would be ridiculous for The Fiend to do... until he started tearing the hair out. Works for me.

Adds a whole new layer to Bray Wyatt if they have him wrestle The Miz at TLC as his Firefly Funhouse character. I like that decision.

Meanwhile, if there was ever a doubt that Vince McMahon is still heavily involved in the creative process, look at what he's doing to Roman Reigns. His never-ending quest to make him the top face of the company continues by having those dastardly villains pour dog food on him to close Smackdown. Believe me, people already hate King Corbin. The dog food is just a ridiculous touch. It just brings me back to Jon Moxley's Jericho podcast. "It's such good shit!"

They basically admitted Roman is WWE Jesus this week

Even though she hasn't been appearing, you get the sense Becky is cold. They seem more interested in making Charlotte the focus again. If Ronda comes back, Becky should be the heel like her boyfriend.

Becky needs to be in the hunt now. Only a select few babyfaces can hold the title for an extended period of time without it getting old. And honestly there's no one right now that could pull it off. Audiences are too fickle to stay behind one person for months and months. Look at how fast Kofi Kingston's run fizzled out. Seth Rollins did everything right to get people behind him against Brock Lesnar, but he sunk hard and fast.

The last one to pull it off was John Cena, and even his run is rife with divided audiences.

The Kabuki Warriors have been great since their heel turn. The women’s tag should main event TLC

I think Becky will hold the title until Mania to face Bazler.

TLC is one weird PPV. Only three title matches scheduled, and all three are the tag title matches.

The only other TLC match is Roman vs. Corbin. Please for the love of God, don't make that the main event. I don't even hate Corbin that much but he can't main-event another PPV in 2019.

It's smart to have Bray wrestle as himself this Sunday. It could add something new. But I really hope they don't have The Fiend show up in the match. It would obviously be someone dressed as The Fiend, unless they could pull off a quick change under the ring, and I don't want there to be some supernatural element to the character. I didn't like Bray appearing on screen and then seconds later, The Fiend is in the ring. They should not pretend in any way that they are two separate characters.

Post Re: Wrestling (WWE, IMPACT, NXT, AEW)
I enjoyed the Bray/Miz segments last night for the most part, but I wish WWE had a tad more attention to detail. Miz and Maryse stood staring at the iPad for an eternity while creepy puppets show up in their daughter's bed? Then they run upstairs and the camera man is in the room already. How hard is it to stop for ten minutes and plan a more realistic encounter? And the puppets should have been stationary, the movement suggests a supernatural element that's been integrated into the character that I don't necessarily like.

But the Firefly Funhouse worked. I want a replica of that creepy doll.

So what's the biggest moment of the decade for you guys?
Is it AEW launching? Is it DB returning from career ending concussions? Women's WM main event?

Nah, my moment of the year is Brock Lesnar ending the Streak. And it will be the moment of my life as a wrestling fan.

Match of the decade: Shawn vs Taker WM XXVI.
Whenw as the last time the two same wrestlers had the match of the decade back to back?

Mania 30 as a whole. The opening with Hogan, Austin and the Rock, Bryan beating HHH then winning the title later on, Taker’s streak going down- and this was all after the best performer in the company infamously quit out of nowhere. Amazing show. #2 would be summerslam from the year before with Bryan upsetting Cena and Punk v Lesnar.

Match of the decade:
WWE: CM Punk v Brock Lesnar
NXT: Johnny Gargano v Andrade Cien Almas
AEW: Jericho v Darby Allin (i didn’t watch the first few ppvs though)
Everyone else: Pick an Okada match

And obviously the Pipe Bomb is the best promo of the decade, maybe best ever.

Did they just build up the return of Liv Morgan to be Lana's secret lesbian girlfriend? What?

I'll post my top moments and matches of the decade later or tomorrow. It's been a wild decade of ups and downs.

Yeah. This isn't going to go over well with anyone. (Except it got the biggest audience reaction of the overlong segment...).

What ridiculousness.

The audiences reaction when they figured it out was so funny. :funny:

Plus it’s not like Liv Morgan was doing much with her Harley Quinn gimmick, that is Alexa’s look.

Hey! If WWE wants the trashy tv fans to get into wrestling, this Lana/Rusev/Lashley and now Liv is the way to go.

I'm old enough to remember that this storyline started as "Who is the father of Maria Kanellis's baby?"

Brock Lesnar being in the Royal Rumble at Number 1 pretty much shits on potentially one of the most exciting matches of the year. And why isn't he defending the WWE Championship in the Royal Rumble? Wouldn't that be unprecedented? Is he going to win the Royal Rumble and face The Fiend at Wrestlemania?

It should be interesting to see how they have the Royal Rumble match only last 10 minutes.

The fact Nxt is comfortable as fuck putting their women's division on the main event week in and week out speaks volumes on their confidence! Best division in the world
