    Slam Dunk 2019

    I wasn't even old enough to go to their last UK tour I know how you feel tho as there's a guy at work who is 19, we were talking and I mentioned I was going to see The Prodigy that night, he then asks "who are The Prodigy". It then occurred to me I'm like my uncle when I was a teenager who would name some 70/80s dinosaur bands and expected me to know what he was on about.

    Slam Dunk 2019

    Rarity is a bit of a non-issue if the band isn't a big draw in the first place for the spot. For example Save Ferris were low on the Fireball stage despite doing a very rare (about 20 years I believe) UK show last year yet Zebrahead are seemingly almost there yearly were a lot higher on the bill.

    My solution is to now watch Blade Runner 2 when she's not about and just not tell her.

    Actually according to Steph 40% of the WWE audience is female now which she believes the women's revolutions has contributed to you also can't ignore Ronda's star power and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Bella are consistently good merch sellers. Also a female friend of mine who knows I follow wrestlers come up to me a few weeks to ask me about Becky Lynch and has started following it now because of her.

    I thought you were always complaining about how it's meant to be a PG/family show?

    He matches against the other big guys have largely been duds tho, like I said I'd rather see a worker get a decent match out of him rather than another match the same quality of Reigns, Kane and Braun were doing all of last year with him. Saying that Samoa Joe got a something decent out of him.

    Films

    I do find watching films on the best ever lists can be a mixed bag as seeing the likes of Citizen Kane or The Shining when they have been so heavily parodied you know the big scenes already it and ends being like when you get the punchline of a joke the day after you heard it. Speaking of those best ever films I've been wanting to watch the new Blade Runner film for months but my girlfriend insists on watching it with me and watching the first beforehand as she can't remember the original. So last night we watched the 1st one after months of her going it's too long/not in the mood/must watch it with me she ends up spending most of the time playing about on her phone. After it finished I asked what she thought and basically she wants to watch it again and she missed most of it and we can't watch the new one yet. I never gonna be able to watch the new Blade Runner!

    It's not realistic to expect anyone to beat Lesnar tho, at least with Balor you are getting another worker like AJ and Bryan who will get a decent match out of him. He'll probably be super-demon Balor too which will explain why he's not on par with him all of a sudden. TBH apart from the odd match here and there he's not done much of note in WWE, I wasn't hugely fussed over his NXT run. The smiley cool guy routine doesn't suit him compared to the strong style Buller Club leader he was in New Japan. I'd like to see New Day win the Rumble for a feud with Bryan. Their antics would complement heel Bryan and considering how big they are it's a shame they are stuck in the tag division where there's not much left for them to do apart from break the most tag title reigns of all time.

    I do find it funny the scandalous towel she is wearing actually covers her more than her normal ring kit. So is Balor facing Brock because Braun is still injured or they want Balor to think the company believes in him so he wont run off to AEW?

    If the Impericon and Punk In Drublic stage posters are in the right order it looks like Glassjaw-NoFx will and Turnstile-Millencloin might.

    I'm happy Milk Teeth are there (although it makes another potential clash) otherwise not fussed.

    I'd probably go with Zelda Ocarina of Time, Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi 2 but I'd really need to give them another go incase I'm keeping my nostalgia glasses on. I could easily throw in Time Splitters 2, Soul Calibur, Resident Evil 4, Mario Kart 8, Batman Arkham Asylum, Marvel vs Capcom 2 and Smash Bros with them too.

    Camden Rocks 2019

    Looks decent already, but it really depends on how the line up/splits come together. Milk Teeth, Raging Speedhorn, Ash and Ginger are hooking me and I'd recommend Funeral Shakes, Riskee & The Ridicule and Hands Off Gretel from the lesser known acts. I wonder if they will ever get the Roundhouse added too like how the old Camden Crawl did.

    Slam Dunk 2019

    I can only echo what others have said, with the NoFX stage so solid clashes are gonna hurt. The only band I'm not fussed about playing on the Punk In Drublic stage is Lagwagon but I doubt I can catch all of The Bronx, Cancer Bats, Get Up Kids and BFMV whilst they are on. I'd be surprised if Random Hand aren't added since they have come back from their semi-retirement last year.

    WWE

    I enjoyed Smackdown, it's not on the Smackdown Six level but then nothing ever will be. I reckon it still suffers from being the "B" show of WWE. The opening and main event were really good, Rusev showed character development which is so rare and there were a couple of solid tag matches. The only iffy part to me was Mandy Rose being used like a diva rather than a women wrestler but even then I'd rather it was her than the likes of Becky or Asuka.

    I wouldn't be shocked if was true or false but it seemed to have started with a comment Lanny made rather than it being an urban legend. My understanding of the situation (from the those Monday Night Wars shows) was Savage was made to work on commentary even tho he wanted to wrestle with Vince's plan to build new stars which is why he left.

    WWE

    I find Savage suffers coming at a time where Hulk dominated WWE so a spotlight wasn't allowed to shine away from him, a lot of guys from that time like Jake The Snake, Mr Perfect and Piper also had the same issue despite being massive. Even Savages Hall of Fame induction was taken over by Hogan. I'd also chuck in his Jake The Snake and DDP feuds as underrated ones that get lost as people normally go to his Hogan or Steamboat rivalries first. I take it people know of the rumours of the fallout between Savage and Vince? Allegedly Vince already pissed at Randy for leaving to go to WCW later finds out that when Stephanie was a teenager she and Savage slept together which is why he was shunned more so than others who pissed him off in the past. The Hall of Fame only really came about as he was being pushed publicly about Savage not being included.

    I still don't like this criteria of only the toppest of top guys can be thought of as great . You can make the same argument about The Undertaker who you named earlier as he's never really carried a company as it's top star. It also limits it an weird way as someone like Foley, Piper or Mysterio can't be thought of as a great that but it can include the likes of Kevin Nash, Roman Reigns or Lex Luger.

    Well he did manage to launch a successful Wrestling Cruise in America based on his name, has more followers on Twitter than Hulk Hogan as well as doing things like the Jay Leno show.

    I disagree Jericho doesn't have any "significant drawing power". New Japan saw a massive spike on their streaming service and live shows with Jericho, I think (if I remember correctly) the numbers touted at the time where 35% increase on their streaming service and an extra 2k seats literally the day after he showed up. Of course he was never the face of the company the same way Rock or Austin were if that is what you're talking about though.

    C'mon you're knick-picking. He has an impressive resume and is an all round great performer. I'd certainly would call him an all time great.

    WWE

    It wasn't meant to be goth, it was more of Metal/Clockwork Orange thing. The only thing I didn't like about his run in New Japan was they kept trying to make out it was WWE vs New Japan. It did work to an extent but I'd much prefer the narrative being about what a vicious prick Jericho is and trying to be relevant still. Also after 'mania AJ Styles, Nakamura, Gallows and Anderson contracts expire. New Japan are chasing them to make up for losing The Elite but I could see a move to AEW also working for them. Plus there's Omega, Scrull and Pentagon Jnr they could grab. Also CM Punk, they are probably the most able to get him if he does come back to wrestling slim as it maybe. Not fussed about Goldberg and never was. I get the appeal but the squash matches are over too quick for me to enjoy.

    I normally jump between Link (his air down is really useful!), Corrin and Bayonetta as my mains. I really wanted to like Inklings and Ryu but they just don't gel with me, Ryu is too complex when the action is more frantic and Inklings seem a bit weak. The quickest way to unlock people is through the classic mode, if you keep it to the lower settings you should be able to lean and unlock as you go. I'd stay clear of online for the time being tho, it's fucking hard and I've been playing Smash since the original 64 version.

    I find more of the "cool" people talk about Randy Savage more than Flair or Hogan.

    I'm playing it at the moment too, fantastic game. I'm finding the World of Light campaign a bit of slog and I'd prefer the Trophies to the Spirits otherwise it's probably the best version of Smash Bros going. Unlocking the entire roster has taken me a solid week, it was a good thing I had days off the holidays otherwise I'd still be trying to unlock them.
