Mattel's WWE Epic Moments Featuring The Hardy Boyz

Ringside Collectibles just shared new promo pics of the Hardy Boyz Epic Moments two-pack. You can actually preorder the pack here.

This series has a lot of promise if people are willing to pull the trigger on them at this price point. The Festival of Friendship one is a hoot as well. My thoughts on KO aside, I actually like that one even better than this one.

Anyhow, here's the pics of the Epic Moments two-pack.

Bill Belichick Gives The Best Answers

I don't like the Patriots at all, but I absolutely love watching Bill Belichick answer questions at his pressers.  He's like a less charming Nick Saban and I love it.

The best ones are when people ask him really inane or sports talk questions such as this one.  His reaction and answer here is absolutely priceless.

Breaking Asuka's Streak

The Ronda Rousey to WWE news has generated the idea that Ronda may be the one to break Asuka's streak.

Some are fine with this, while other feel it's wrong that an outsider gets that rub as opposed to a regular roster member.

There are merits to both sides of this argument, and I'm sure they'll be debated to death on Wrestling Twitter.

I actually look at it a different way....
There's no satisfying way to end Asuka's streak. 
They've let this thing go on too long, and they really botched it by not having her drop the strap on the way out of NXT.

Matt Hardy's Awakening

As I'm sitting here watching Monday Night Raw, they showed a tease for Matt Hardy's awakening or transformation he's undergoing after his loss to Bray Wyatt last week.

There are a ton of people who are excited about the return of Broken Matt Hardy or whatever exactly this ends up being.  While I enjoyed the Broken Universe in Impact/TNA, I can't say I'm that fired up about this.

I am confident that Matt can make it work if they go about it the right way, but the process of "breaking" him is kind of annoying (for lack of a better term).

In no way am I saying it's the wrong thing to do, it just kind of falls flat for me.  I saw a video on Twitter this weekend of him showing signs of his transformation and I really couldn't sit and watch the whole thing.

My Show Schedule For December

Don't have anything on the wrestling front for December unfortunately.

AWE's Show Of The Year 4 is on December 27th, but I don't think I will be able to attend. It will be a good one though, I believe Norko is going to try to be there, and if things worked out a bit different I would be there as well.

The BIG news for that one is it is the AWE farewell to Martin Stone (Danny Burch in NXT). He's been a tremendous performer for AWE and deserves a fantastic farewell.

This event will be held at the Marietta Event Hall in Marietta, GA.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

Great trailer, if you're a fan of these films or even these types of films I'd imagine you're hyped for this.

Also I'd like to let you in on a secret. The reason I post trailers like this isn't to try to drive traffic to this site. I typically don't even share these posts on Twitter or Facebook. I primarily do it with films Dad might like. Then I call him and say, "Check my site out, the new Avengers trailer is there." It's an easy way for me to share these with him so that he doesn't have to go hunting down the right one. That's the deal if you ever wondered.

It is also a nice opportunity to make the site look more up to date even if the posting has dropped off. That's really the only benefit to the site itself, new content on the main page.

AJ Styles Destroys The Singh Brothers With A Second-Rope Styles Clash

This move on SmackDown blew me away.  I thought it was really cool before I even noticed that the other Singh was on the mat.


Jinder being furious with The Singh Brothers after the match and punishing them for their failure was a nice touch too.

Lastly, Jinder's suit was incredible.

Elias Is The Real Deal

It's official, I want to walk with Elias. That dude has been interesting since he joined the main roster, but I believe last night was a real star-making situation for him even in defeat.

What worked so well about last night? There were a couple of things.

It was nice getting Roman's IC Open Challenge off to a hot start.

Another interesting aspect was Elias taking in The Miztourage while Miz heels up from his Shield beatdown (and films The Marine 6).

Elias also hit a homer with the segment just before the match. Knoxville, Tennessee was as pro-Roman crowd as we've seen in a while. He sat out there performing long enough that we got a LOUD "WE WANT ROMAN!" chant.

At that point, the stage was set and all he needed to do was deliver in the match itself, and he absolutely did.  In general, Elias is able to work the crowd in a way that few others do.  He's got a great look, and he's solid enough in the ring.

SI Article On 2009 BAMA Players Being Paid For Autographs

Reposting this from Twitter because I figure some may expect me to have a take on the subject so here goes. I should add that I would obviously prefer that stories like this never crop up related to Alabama, but here we are.

"These kids" refers to college football players, not just BAMA ones. I've said a million times that I am all for bringing paying players out in the open, and I hope BAMA hires the best ones.

The Thing About Kane

Seeing a lot of chatter about Kane "burying" young talent/the entire roster on Raw this week.  I am conflicted on the whole thing because there's actually a lot of different angles you need to consider here.

Let's take a look...

  • It is important to remember that no Raw is a self-contained story, and in this case they clearly seem to be building towards either Roman or BRAUN taking out Kane.

    There's also the issue here that Kane could be very well starting his final run.  I think in that case you've got to give them a little leeway as well. 

    Either way, let things play out a bit.
