Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I think with Lance and Todd both gone the "critical analysis" aspect of a lot of the audio is gone. Tom Lawlor ranking fat guys isn't going to do that. I think Les Thatcher and Karl Stern in their own ways are exhausted. Karl wants to do his own pop culture thing, and while I like Vic, Les seems to...

Martel is a really interesting one. There's a lot more there than most people realize.

Re: 2016 WON HOF: 4 New Inductees

I just noticed, in reading the Observer intro to the HOF article, that longevity is one of four criteria for induction. Is this new? I don't recall that being part of the equation prior to this year officially (although it has been used for purposes of arguing against wrestlers with short runs). It...

Slaughter is a bubble guy for me, but you can have a pretty fun and productive debate over his candidacy. Compare that to Sting, which had just devolved into two sides yelling at each other and me not caring either way.

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

The "dave is a raging sexist" stuff is utter nonsense, I agree. But we live in times where terms like that are tossed around very irresponsibly, black & white with little room for gray, especially on social media. If you misspeak, are misunderstood, or simply don't toe the line on a certain issue, ...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

"A Boston Globe article reported that former WWE female star Ashley Massaro, 37, has claimed that in 2006, she was sent by WWE to Kuwait to visit American troops, and she claims she was sexually assaulted at a U.S. military base. Massaro made the claim as being one of the seven new plaintiffs inn wh...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I know that Dave is the paper of record and a arbiter of wrestling culture, but I believe it's a slippery slope to expect him to be some sort of Christ-like figure that must atone for all the sins of the graps community. No one's expecting this, only for rationality and decency. I must be reading a...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I'm a 'normal' guy with a family, a job, and a few different hobbies. I also regularly post in the MPI and New Pics GTFO sections of the board. A number of other members who i've met through the site and become shoot friends with fall into that category as well. It's not all shut-ins and weirdos. Ju...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Forgive me if this has been covered, but why hasn't WWE signed Deonna Purrazo, Tessa Blanchard, or Rachael Ellering to work NXT full time? WWE turned down Deonna and told her to get more experience and indie exposure essentially. They do like her a lot though. Written at length about Tessa in this ...

The number of blade jobs on those JCP Starrcade shows is staggering. It was at least every other match in 85 alone.

Re: YOUR favorite Survivor Series/Starrcade Matches and Moments

Having rewatched the first Survivor Series this week, it is a remarkably good and consistent show. Of the early WWF ppvs, it's easily the best booked and wrestled shows. Definitely doesn't have any huge high peaks, but it's overall a great show. One of the best start to finish WWF PPV's of the 80s....
