    I didn't think hogan was physically capable of wrestling anymore since his last back surgery, or is it just another delay because as we all know wrestlers work hurt and take stronger pain meds instead of retiring.

    Also, what is up with Bischoff's stretch armstrong arms?

    So the Cody Rhodes promo on Smackdown this week is really good. Just saying.

    Ok, I want to hear everyone's ideas for an APPLE shirt. I would like a vintage looking Tee, with the guys in Silhouette like Charlie's Angels. Santino would be sideways with the Cobra up.

    Hmm...

    Artistic represenation of Santino with the Cobra ready, offering the viewer an apple.

    ...too allegorical?

    Okay. So I know we're nearing the end of the thread. I'm working on writing up a new-ish one for the next thread, and get the respective champions up to date. I'll try and have that done either tonight or tomorrow evening as my weekend is gonna be packed.

    Unless anyone else wants to be the OP?

    I am going to be honest, I giggle like a little girl at the "Shocking Debuts" pun EVERY DAMN TIME.

    Smackdown is pretty good this week. Nice video package of Edge's career, and the battle Royal is pretty good too.

    I heard the same things.

    Also anyone remember when Vince was a nice guy commentator and you had no idea he actually owned the damn company.

    I remember learning that shortly before the whole Bret incident and it blew my mind.

    Ah my early days online....

    I remember that...

    He also called matches better than what we see these days, too.
    It was a line of bodybuilding supplements that probably caused more kidney damage than Ahmed Johnson.

    I thought Ahmed suffered from kidney damage, rather than caused it.
    What the hell is ICOPRO?

    Another failed Vince-venutre. It was a nutritional supplement company he founded shortly after the WBF debacle.

    You could also see banners for it in the background of a lot of their shows around the early to mid-90s.

    So much good stuff can be on there.

    Not that I have much hope for them to pick the really good stuff.

    DDP: "Toasty!!!"


    On another note, I had a fun idea for something to do, but I wish I had posted earlier...

    The idea was basically figuring out new terms to sub for old terms, a la the new guide for WWE people...

    ...and I had ideas, but I completely forgot them. x_X

    Considering moves these days seem to be limited to mostly punches and kicks I think it's shrunk in move set.

    Everything seems banned or hey that's wrestling, can't have that.

    I mean...a punt.....a punt, really.

    So, I just read a blog post on screened.com that One Life to Live and All My Children have been canceled and are getting replaced with a Top Chef knockoff and Biggest Loser knockoff respectively.

    Still want to be an "action soap opera" Vince?

    TNA could always respond with The Bold & The Beautiful People.

    Though that's not everyone's cup of tea, so maybe something offbeat, quirky is your choice. What about Married with CHIKARA? Is it bad that my first thought was Delirious sitting on a couch with his hand down his pants rambling about something?

    You can buy Cody Rhodes' "Dashing" theme on iTunes, his old one, not his new sad one.

    The Rock's new theme is up too. I guess WWE might be going this route instead of releasing compilations every so often. If so I approve, saves me the trouble of owning crappy themes mixed in with the awesome ones.
