Showcase of the Immortals / Re: UPW 13 Rd. 8 :BAH GAWD NO COIN TOSSES!

1: Bret 'The Hitman' Hart
2: The Rock
3: The Ultimate Warrior

There haven't been any truly great ones since Summer of Punk.

Honestly the last one that got me excited might be Kurt Angle's first back in '00-'01. Edge may have qualified if he had held the title longer. But much of his best stuff was as a challenger to John Cena.

1: Bret 'The Hitman' Hart vs The Great Muta : The matches would be great viewing, but I just don't think Muta would typically be expected to win more often than not.

2: Booker T vs The Big Show

3: CM Punk vs The Rock : I am going with Rock. Yes he lost a fair amount of high profile matches. But he also beat just about everyone of note in the deepest era ever. 

4: AJ Styles vs 'Big Poppa Pump' Scott Steiner : I don't know that I would have taken AJ before his E run. But adding that seals it.

5: 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair vs Yokozuna

6: The Ultimate Warrior vs Bruno Sammartino : There aren't many guys I would take over Bruno, given the length of his dominance. Which was essentially most of the 60's and much of the 70's. But I think prime Warrior is one of them.

1: Bret 'The Hitman' Hart : Bret is hurting afterward, but makes it through.

2: The Great Muta

3: Booker T

4: The Big Show : Show just spent too much time as a dominant force.

5: CM Punk vs Mitsuharu Misawa : Probably the toughest call of the round. Looking back, I went with Misawa when these two met before. So I'll take Punk this time.

6: The Rock

7: AJ Styles

8: 'Big Poppa Pump' Scott Steiner : Real in your face type matchup, though the eventual result is not in doubt.

9: 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair

10: Yokozuna

11: The Ultimate Warrior : Funny to see a squash this late.

12: The Iron Sheik

13: Bruno Sammartino : Bruno was too dominant. Atlas is not a factor, and Sid is not quite there.

I'm going Holmes, by either decision or a late round stoppage.

I see it going somewhat like Larry's victory vs Earnie Shavers. (Which I want to watch again when I get the time. It's been a while.)

How about this guy? ( PC Omega )

The consensus years ago seemed to be that PC Validus was rival to/within reach of some of Marvel's top bricks. But this guy, not so much. IIRC he gave Mon-El a concussion with that single blow.
PC Validus vaporized a skyfather level Daxamite with one shot. He was out of reach for any Marvel Top tier. And Omega was out of reach to Validus.

To clarify, I was not referring to Marvel's top tiers. But rather to their megas. Mangog, Klaatu, Modt, The Devourer, and so on.

Well, Imp?

1: Bret 'The Hitman' Hart ( Awesome match. Bret wins out in the end. )

2: Batista ( I would love to say otherwise, but can't. )

3: Kenta Kobashi ( "Buffalo Bills" Braun can't win the big one! )

4: The Great Muta  ( Green mist ftw. )

5: Nigel McGuinness

6: Booker T ( Booker had success against Scott Steiner. Who is >> Ryback. )

7: The Big Show ( Giant/Show was a top guy. Umaga was basically a more ferocious Rikishi. )

8: Chris Jericho ( Jake never did anything like beating Austin & Rock on the same night. )

9: CM Punk

10: Mitsuharu Misawa ( Good stuff. Think Misawa tames The Game.)

11: The Rock ( Modern legend over classic one. Would loves Rocky's mic work here. )

12: Roman Reigns ( Don't think Dusty would get to "retire" 'Taker at Mania. )

13: Shinsuke Nakamura

14: AJ Styles ( If Styles beats Savage, he wins here too. )

15: 'The Enforcer' Arn Anderson ( Vamp had a nice run, but it's over. )

16: 'Big Poppa Pump' Scott Steiner  ( I fucking hate this tourney sometimes. But yeah, Steiner was a formidable foe, even for Goldberg. )

17: Sgt. Slaughter ( Upset special, driven by Sarge's Warrior win. The guy was also basically the #2 person in the fed for a time. )

18: 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair

19: Ricky 'the Drag....er.....no, wait, ..... The Miz. The guy will probably go down as having more IC Titles, and title time, than anyone else. He's also won a 'Mania main event, is a Grand Champion, bangs Maryse, blah, blah, blah.

20: Yokozuna

22: Eddie Edwards

23: The Ultimate Warrior

24: Nikita Koloff

25: The Iron Sheik ( Dethroning Backlund after nearly half a decade >> beating 'Taker in a random Smackdown match. )

26: Sid Vicious

27: Bruno Sammartino  ( Bruno was too dominant for too long. As HJ says, Jeff would get props for his showing though. )

28: Kofi Kingston  ( Collector of midcard titles > loser of midcard matches.)

There must be a curse on the CW division. Neville and AA were the best people they had, and both are done. Enzo may not be a crack ring performer, but there are like two guys that have much distinctive about them beyond him. Otherwise it is mostly flippity people that risk their health for audiences that don't care. Remember that four way from a month or two ago? The crowd was dead for it. Like Tamina vs Natalya levels of dead.

Save for needing to take up time on a three hour show, I fail to see much of a point in the Raw cruisers at this juncture. If Enzo is not coming back, they better get it in gear with Gulak, and stop wasting Jack Gallagher. Otherwise, they are done.

I might have voted by now, but I want to see how Braun does tomorrow.

Kobashi is pretty formidable. Pinning or submitting Brawk would go a long way in convincing me he wins there.

Widow 6/7ish out of 10

Pretty much this. Perhaps another digit toward her imo, but basically agree.

The XFL is going to fail, again. Stars drive interest. They aren't going to be able to compete in that regard. Even if star power in the NFL is waning.

Speaking of the NFL, I don't think I have ever been through a less exciting season. Granted pretty much all of the teams I am interested in sucked. And when I finally took to rooting for the Vikings again, they layed out one of the biggest wet farts in recent memory.

Debate / Re: Should dems try to force a Daca vote
« on: January 26, 2018, 12:41:35 AM »
seriously thus should be a slam dunk for the dems

You got a something that like by 70 to 80 percent of the people
It seem clear by the polls their blaming the republicans

It's not as if this is the first time, or issue, that such is the case either.

Dems can have 70, 80, even 90 percent of the public on their side on various issues. From reasonable gun laws to real healthcare reform to a higher minimum wage to......... and they still fail.

Honestly the real driver is behind the scenes money. Corporate Dems are paid to be weak and feckless. To be political jobbers. Otoh the oligarchs that run America's political system want the hardest ass GOP they can get.

If Democrats are done, it would be due largely to being spineless and pointless. Not because of anything in the OP's post.

Best wishes, Thanos. Sorry for your loss and hope things turn out alright for your girlfriend's Dad. Stay strong.
