    I guess we'll see. We don't count the hour network specials so that wouldn't be so bad. I just know they'll announce a bunch of matches over the weekend if it's a standard PPV and that's hard for everybody to stay updated.

    I still think The Simpsons are funny. They're just not cutting edge anymore. They can be broadly humorous at times, but they're too "big" to make fun of "the big guys".

    And they'll probably be neutered even further, because they're owned by Disney.

    They hit their big peak in the 90s and a lot of the newer stuff is as you say neutered. Also a lot of the newer stuff I’ve seen is recycled and also Simpson’s with mobile phones and internet now to keep an eye on Bart just isn’t the same. They’re still a monster franchise though and as much as I’d wish they’d stop, they probably won’t any time soon barring a catastrophe.

    I'm just looking forward to the eventual point where Homer Simpson shows up in the MCU.

    Forgive me if I’m wrong on this but Simpsons and Raw may be the two of the most long-running episodic series on US network television. It’d be interesting to see who folds first.

    Actually there’s talk shows and other stuff that have them beat.

    Its something like

    1. RAW
    2. The Simpsons
    3. American Bandstand
    4. Gunsmoke

    As the 4 longest running programs on TV.

    I don't think RAW's ever going away. Disney would buy WWE and keep it going before that happened.

    Googled and the Tonight Show came up and been going since 1954 technically despite change in hosts. Maybe not as consistent though.

    If Disney bought WWE, I would officially stop watching and they’d have to water it down even more. Fuck it they ruined Doug lol.

    I found these a few weeks back. I have a fair few recorded now. Only seen the Bret one, so far. Decent, but we've heard it all before.

    Oh, and I saw the first part of the Benoit one.

    That case is almost 40 years old and that cop was probably what, 30 when it happened? So we're talking about an old ass cop who's probably forgotten more than his share of crime he's had to try and solve over the years.

    A Snuka episode was about 20 years too late. It would've been much better in the 90's when people's memories weren't shit and the story wasn't such an afterthought.

    It would've been better if Snuka was alive.

    When you've got a profile on a murder case where both the principles are dead, its not exactly exciting.

    "Yeah, he did it. We all know he did it. And, uhh, if he wasn't already dead, we'd do something about it. Yeah!"

    Snuka had been losing it the better part of the last decade, too. I doubt his memory was reliable, either.

    Yikes. Marty was always a favorite of mine but he does not do himself any favors with these FB posts he makes.

    If the rumour of Summerslam being on a boat comes to fruition, this should be the theme song if itís allowed:

    Found this and laughed pretty good. Especially at Mean Gene trying to cover his laughter at Ken.

    Mean Gene was notorious for trying to hold in his laughter keep character, but also what else I loved him for? He had balls to stand up to the wrestlers. Announcers these days and most past tbhcower if wrestlers came at them but he was up in Hogan’s face threatening to sue when Hogan grabbed him during his NWO heel turn at ‘96 Bash at the Beach.

    Announcers fighting back, Gene was great and less if not any announcers don’t do that.

    Exactly. WWE are so fucking tone deaf it's absurd. They only care about trying to get heat on people. It doesn't matter who it is. Top babyface? Better get a 50/50 response or you're getting buried.

    When Roman comes back, most fans will be happy for his return, and I bet he will get a huge pop.

    Is Retribution going to debut on the Payback PPV? Its one week after Summerslam apparently.

    The name Retribution and Payback are pretty much the same thing.

    They could do a Named Wrestler Vs ??? Card where someone like Kevin Owens is annoyed so he challenges one of them but he doesn't know who it is until they come out and unmask.

    Most likely its a cinematic PPV where they follow Retribution smashing plates and taking a bat to the ferns in the performance centre.

    Summerslam is tentatively slated to be held at the Amway Arena in Orlando, Florida, per multiple reports. The reports indicate, as of now, there will be no actual fans in attendance and will still their regular extras for the crowd. Don't see a lot of negatives to the idea.

    They must be planning to hold it at the Amway arena because the Retribution gang is causing too many problems at the Performance Center.

    WWE needs to take a page out of the UFC's book and make Wrestling Island.


    Also, it will be the best Reality Series on the Network.
