    I need less of this video and more of this weed...

    Seriously, though, that's the pinkest human I've ever seen (and I live in New England!)

    BTW what do you guys think Sting's WWE theme song should be? I was thinking something that really encompasses his legendary career. Something thrashy like Iced Earth but more modern metalcore-ish like Avenged Sevenfold.

    Went to see WWE Live in Stockton, CA last night. It was a good show for a non-televised show.

    Sheamus def. Cesaro in a US Title match
    Sin Cara def. Fandango
    R-Truth def. Bo Dallas
    The Usos def. Harper/Rowan and Big E/Kofi Kingston in a triple threat for tag team titles.

    Intermission

    Emma/Nikki Bella def. Alicia Fox/Layla (with rosa Mendez as guest referee). Then Nikki Bella turned on Emma and beat her up.

    Dolph Ziggler def. The Miz for IC Title

    John Cena def. Kane in a no holds barred street fight after delivering an AA through a table.

    This was the first live showing I've been to in about 25 years. It was fun. The action was good, the crowd was into it.

    I thought the street fight wasn't a great idea for an event with no cameras. Without the jumbotrons, it was hard to see the out of ring action.

    Had a good time though.

    I'm laughing just thinking about those opening scenes. Thanks for remembering some lines. Too bad the effects of steroid use did him in.

    Not sure, I was just google searching pictures. CM Punk was purposefully channeling Macho Man though. Those are the exact shades of pink and yellow Starburst :lol:

    Randy hasn't been booked well in too long, I wouldn't believe him as a credible threat at all. Really no one is right now but Cena.

    Yeah, Orton could put on a great match, he just has to look good, I'd Feud him with Wyatt maybe, or have him turn on the Authority.

    Punk just wore that get up the Raw after Macho died to pay his respects. At least that's all I ever saw him wear it. Although he did start using the elbow drop.

    Never did the move where he grabbed the guy by the head and jumped over the top rope and slamed his neck into the top rope though. That was one my favorite things Macho did.

    Yeah, just paying respect to Macho Man

    The Punk elbow did suck. No grace whatsoever.

    Amen.

    Although I wouldn't mind Lesnar vs Orton.

    He's pretty dead at the minute. Needs to do something.

    Yeah I really like them, Bray needs a push soon, or else he's going to just stagnate and go nowhere, great character though.

    Saw MM v Ricky Steamboat live. End was remarkable, 93,000 on their feet. Only the Pope drew a larger crowd.

    Yeah, that was 8. Great storyline around it too, even if it wasn't the 'main event' ''She was mine before she was yours. WOOOOOOOOO''

    Steve Austin vs Bret Hart wm13 is my favorite match.

    HBK/Taker 1 was insane. When Shawn kicked out of the second tombstone I could have died. I thought he might do it! :)

    You were there in person? BOSS!

    Line to get in was a mile and a half. Took 2 1/2 hrs to get into the Silverdome.

    I popped for the Ambrose return.

    Pretty average show tonight.

    Hell in a cell to be the end of Brock vs Cena.

    There was a rumor going around about Rollins and Brock practicing the curb stomp, I didn't really believe it. Now this can start something with Brock and the authority, maybe. We could get that Brock vs Orton match.

    It was cool to see Rollins give Brock the curb stomp, but I knew something was going to get in the way. Cena got screwed, so I reckon he gets another rematch. At least Cena gave Brock a fight this time.

    I wonder if they will do Rollins vs Ambrose in the cell. I hope they do because it is the best feud they have going on.

    Part of me was wondering why Rollins didn't wait for Cena to win, then cash in with a briefcase to Cena's head, but then Brock kicked out at 2 on the replay anyway.

    Sold the Curbstomp very well though, it's a great finisher.

    The 5 minute brawl they had was almost one of the best parts of the night, HIAC between the two would be incredible.

    The curb stomp was perfect :) I was just hoping Cena didn't lose, so I'm really happy with the finish. He'd look TOO weak losing, but he also does NOT need the title, so everything worked out for me.

    Usually fights that go into the crowd look AWFUL. Seth and Dean tonight were one of the very few times that came out right. Credit to both guys for selling it so well. Great brawl.

    When he was going to cash in, looked and saw Lesnar starting to get up. Lesnar sold it so well.

    Seth and Dean have brawled through the crowd in all three matches and always pull it off. Sheamus vs Cesaro was the highlight for me tonight though :)

    Even the Diva's match was good.

    Don't forget when Angle chucked him through the glass the first time the glass didn't break and he fell right on his head and got concussion. Looked at angle and said do it again. Vince said almost walked right out and stopped the match right then.

    Yes, Cesaro and Sheamus felt like a fight. I imagine Bret Hart watching that match and giving it a thumbs up. Shame in a way because both of them are not getting used properly. Last night they just had a fight. Awesome.

    That is one of Brock's most valuable attributes, his selling. For such a monster, he sells so well. I remember when he was taking on Triple H in the cage last year, he whacked his knee on the cage and for the rest of the match was screaming ''my knee, my knee'' he made it believable that he was just just about to quit. Paul Heyman was shouting at him to just hang on. It was great.

    On the other hand, we have John Cena, if he loses a championship, he shrugs his shoulders and is like ''I'll win it back next week''. I like confidence, but I like selling better. But whatever.

    I'd give last night show a slight thumbs up :)

    That's right.

    Vince is not the only McMahon with big grapefruits. I guess he thought twice in the end because of the father/son relationship. My son wants to prove how tough he is. I don't know. Glad he didn't stop it.

    That's one thing with Shane, he always or usually entertained. Stephanie does the old evil villain well now, I can't lie, but I still don't like her much ( breasts aside lol) She doesn't 'show her rear end' like Vince and Shane did. Hard to get one up on her. :/ Ok, she was 'arrested' but still came out smelling of roses. Have her spend a month or months in jail.

    Oops

    [​IMG]

    Bit of info if you're not tuned in. The Sting in the middle is not Sting, it is the NWO Sting (Jeff Farmer) I believe this picture is from Japan because WCW had their thing with Japan going on back in the day. You would think they put somebody with a clue in charge of pictures.

    lol at this. You've given up, WWE! :p

    Never a big enough Sting fan to know the difference from looking at the pics.

    But thats a terrible mistake for the company to make.
