Showcase of the Immortals / Re: Saddest moments in wrestling.

that's not really sad though


Not like Prop's example, which IS sad, but only because all the ladies involved in that deserve better
He says tearjerkers, though, so does it mean sad, or emotionally charged?

Showcase of the Immortals / Re: Wrestlemania 35 / Wrestlemania 2019

It was the first wrestling-anything that I’ve watched in years and I enjoyed it. The only thing I can say that was a real negative was that it went on a little too long. I don’t know what you could have cut from it, though; all of the belts were defended (as they should be at WM); the “grudge” matches were settled (enough, for now); it was well paced in terms if segments/moments versus matches; and each match was surprisingly good. Really, the worst matches of the night IMO were Corbin/Angle and Lashley/Balor, with each being at least a 3* affair.

Corbin/Angle suffered from Angle CLEARLY barely able to move and just not up to the Angle standard, and the fact that it was Corbin. He’s big, he can move and he has a pretty cool finisher, but his gimmick is weak (the outfit is WHACK) and his connection with the fans isn’t there. I don’t think Cena in that spot would have been better, necessarily. A better match, yes, because John is a better worker and it would have been a nice call-back to his leap into the upper echelon way-back-when (the Ruthless Aggression slap), but John doesn’t need the rub and Cena haters would have still bitched...unless he’d come out as Thuggin’ Cena. THAT would have gone over huge for Angle’s last match, but also over shadowed Angle’s last hurrah. Corbin worked; not perfect as far as prestige goes, but Angle pulled out all of his moves and Corbin kept him safe.

ICT / Re: Samus VS Alucard

SotN Alucard has access to a shit ton of magic items and weapons that Samus would have trouble with. Alucard's Sword allows him to perform teleport strikes that, when timed properly (in gameplay), renders him unhittable while dealing a lot of damage. His Poison Cloud form renders him invulnerable and capable of dealing damage, as well. Alucard can also cast several spells (like Blood Magic? Forget the name) that he doesn't need to aim, just cast, that will damage Samus. Gameplay-wise, double arming Alucard with Crissaegrim (rare, but I've done it) and alternating attack buttons turns you into a moving, whirling cloud of death. Alucard's familiars would also prove to be a nuisance, distracting Samus left and right.

Samus might have "superior technology", but that doesn't dictate an auto win, particularly when magic doens't give a fuck about any of that, allowing Alucard to hit from anywhere without any real defense or reprisal from Samus.
two crissaegrams is the peak of redundancy. You're going to be a whirlwind of death regardless, and only as fast as you can press one button anyways

But I do like to see a pro Alucard comment
I recall it being slightly faster by pianoing your attack buttons (square and circle, iirc), rather than pressing a single one over and over. When I did it, there was a noticeable difference. Had to hold my hand in a weird claw position so I could jump, but I made it work.

Of course, this was 20+ years ago, so I my memory could be off a smidge.

In any event, Alucard would fucking wreck Samus.

1) Russo wins IMO. Pilgrim was a capable shot but not on the level of Frank and Billy. I see Russo taking that more often than not.

2) I think Pilgrim would surprise Russo while he looked down and out, doing enough damage to take the lead and win the fight in a hand to hand battle.

Sonny could take all of The Defenders on his own, let alone Daredevil by himself.

Sonny, Eleventybajillion/10.

Balrog would beat the absolute shit out of Johnny Cage, 8-9/10. The win or two Cage gets is when his "ancient pantheon" DNA or whatever the fuck manifests and allows him to Mary-Sue his way through to a win.

DocFallout22, although the chances of you playing an actual game with ME are slim, since my kids use it far more than I do (re: once since we bought it). Be fun to listen to you suffer through a game of Fortnite with them, though LOL. "OMG...he's hax! You're trash, bro!"

He has a few things on him that would help delay enough to make a getaway or even pull a win or two sans prep (flashbang, explosives, gas, sonics), but off the cuff for the majority? Nah.

First thing the Tyson that lost to Douglas was not a good Tyson. He was barely training being wild and getting dropped in sparring. His chin is also something really is never mentioned when talking about his attributes.

Tyson didn't get an chance to truly prove himself back to where he went to prison.

I do like Bandido write up though.
Tyson also ostensibly KO’ed Douglas early in the fight. Buster benefited from a long 10 count (like 12-13 seconds), and Mike going into the later rounds with his shit training camp, wilding out in Japan and the problems in his marriage (Robin was seeing Brad Pitt on the sly around the same time or soon after) took its toll. Buster won, according to the records, but there was a whole lot of shit going on in Tyson’s life that took his focus off the fight.

That said, Ali would “fight tall”, keep his jab in Tyson’s face all night and take the decision, more often than not.

Yes...because his speed is vastly greater than theirs. He can move far faster than anyone listed can think. It’s not rocket science, it’s simple math, guy.
