    I love Enzo/Cass/and Hot as Hella so much. But they'd totally have Cass eventually betray Enzo on the main roster.

    Also the only time Pick Ems champion Dex Dynamo is going to be best for business, is when he's dropping the belt to Mr. Money in the Bank Dyvim Tvar.

    I haven't had a chance to go through the last thread, how did the king of the ring turn out and can I see it in its entirety on the network?

    I got nothing for you now. Try again later.

    Also I can't believe a hundred plus pages went by in the last thread without anybody calling out Wirehead for stealing the Cewsh reviews intro line for hatewatch.


    I'm kidding, I can believe that because who the fuck reads cewsh reviews anymore?

    lol making network prices higher during key PPV months is really going to go over well, sure, try it!

    Prices are starting to get higher in general for sports, and I'm wondering if it's because of the absolutely ridiculous Mayweather/Pacquiao stuff

    The cute girl who sits behind me in my invertebrates lecture was wearing a Dean Ambrose hoodie today

    Told her I was more of a Seth Rollins guy, which made her laugh

    Cue schoolboy crushing

    I can say with confidence right now, and not in a petulant or angry way, that I will VERY likely cancel my network subscription if it goes over $9.99. Without the main shows available it is not worth the price point any higher. I think if the WWE thinks a general rise in sports costs means they could get away with increasing their costs and maintaining their customer base, they are sorely mistaken. But obviously nobody knows, maybe it'd work out great.

    I sort of feel like an idiot for even paying them the 9.99 since they seem intent on giving it away for free every month.

    Also I'm aware this is a thing Vince mentioned and is not even close to being a reality. I'm not trying to draw ire about it in the thread, I just think its a strange thing for them to even consider.

    I'm one of those suckers that pays the 9.99 for Wrestlemania and forgot to cancel it (as much of the direction of WWE doesn't interest me right now).

    I don't mind too much because it's nice to have if I decide that the month's ppv looks good or I want to watch NXT, but higher than 10 bucks and I would cancel immediately.

    Does 2k15 have a story/career mode?

    I have tried twice now to play a WWE game on the 360 and all there is is that Universe mode and then the mini-story modes with pre-existing characters (WM/NXT).

    All I want is to make a dude and have him pin John Cena for the title at Wrestlemania.

    Yeah I have watched some random chikara stuff that has been posted in past threads and it has not really done much for me.

    @Nirya what about these PWG Best of Compilations? If I was going to buy one of those to try which would you reccomend?

    The Best Ofs are usually all really solid matches, but the way PWG does them, you're usually not getting anything from the last 3 years or so on them. Of the three.....I'm not sure. Volume 2 has a pretty good mix of guys you wanted, while Volume 3 has a bunch of positives and one huge glaring negative (an RVD match).

    Yeah, you go all the way from NXT to eventually headlining Wrestlemania.

    You even get trained by former head coach Bill Demott!

    I'm really, REALLY hoping they recognize the backlash and fix a ton of the mistakes with the next version.

    I'm not really optimistic it happens, though.

    I think a lot of the problems, the lack of create a diva being chief among them, weren't really things they wanted to have cut. It seems like they ran out of time to finish what they wanted to finish.

    It's kind of 2K's thing though.

    Like they did the same thing with NBA2K14 for PC just being a slightly upscaled PS3 version, while the PS4 version was barebones as heck.

    I think 2K15 was better? The PC version at least had the PS4 graphics engine.

    Apparently they've said that 2k16 is going to have the biggest roster in the series, so I hope they put all of NXT in.

    It's mainly a Yuke's thing.

    Next gen transitions are always rough.

    But mainly I feel like people have had the same complaints about the game for years now. I really wish they got a new developer, just to see how they could shake it up.

    I went to two WCW shows as a small child. Both non-televised I believe. All I remember from one is Sting pulling Rick Rude back to him by his tights, and his ass hanging out. They did this spot over and over, and the crowd loved it.

    The other I was at ringside for a Sting/Luger vs Sid/? match. My little sister and I wearing Sting shirts, holding up a huge (to us) Luger cloth/poster thing. We started crying like mad when Sid started beating Sting up by the metal barricade right next to us. My grandmother claimed that Sting spotted us completely losing it and started his comeback, got Sid back into the ring and wrapped up the match.

    In a completely insane coincidence, look what my grandmother found while cleaning up today. I didn't mention this to her at all.

    I was mostly right. We've got a Sting/Flair match.

    And there they are at the barricade, presumably making me cry.

    Michael "P.S." Hayes and Jimmy "Jam" Garvin! These are the Freebirds I remember.

    This is Texas, so of course these guys got cheered, I know they were some of the biggest babyfaces in WCW.

    And finally...

    Zubaz_zpslu3vcihy.jpg

    I believe that is Barry Horowitz being beaten up by a hillbilly of some sort.

    But who cares, I posted it to show off the awesome Zubaz on that guy.

    I'm hoping that more will go on sale tomorrow when the regular sale is supposed to begin, but I don't think that's how it actually works. But I guess we'll find out.

    And have fun in Michigan. It's much flatter than around here. Drive's not too bad either.

    I believe the OP clearly lays out that Kansas > Iowa, even if the distinction between the two is largely pointless.
