All out fight.  Who wins?


West African migrants smuggled into Libya are being traded and sold at what witnesses have described as modern-day slave markets.

Survivors who were able to either escape or buy their freedom told the U.N.’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM) that the trade was so commonplace it took place in open public spaces.


Tell me this doesn't wash that TERRIBLE Iron Fist taste out your mouth!  I'm as ready as Bonesaw for this ish!

I've thusfar only seen the first special, but if it's any indication of where the collection is going he's definitely earning his $60M.  He's so honest and so edifying while doing​ some real edgy material at times.  He's now officially an old-school/throwback comedian and he's not afraid to occupy that cultural space.  Nobody does it better than King Dave.

Well... that was the second best movie of the year so far.  Gritty, intensely violent thriller that delivers exactly what the audience came for.  How would you react if this scenario played out at your office?

Article: Report: Director Tim Miller Quits Deadpool 2 Over Issues With Ryan Reynolds (Update)

Deadline is reporting that Deadpool director Tim Miller is leaving the sequel over a series of creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Variety confirmed the news with its own source. Miller hadn’t signed a formal deal for the next film in Fox’s franchise, based on the Marvel comic, but he was reportedly working on the script and getting things moving for the planned 2018 release.

Update: According to The Wrap, the pair parted ways because Miller wanted the second film to be more stylized, while Reynolds (a producer on both films) wanted to keep the raunchy, fourth-wall-breaking comedy approach that made the first film such a success. Their conflict reportedly came to a head with the rumored casting of Kyle Chandler as Cable. Chandler was Miller’s choice, but Reynolds didn’t want him for the part, and the studio ended up siding with the star- partially because his renegotiated contract includes casting approval.

Chandler would've been PERFECT!!!  I'm officially calling for a boycott of this movie and any property Reynolds is associated with from here on.  He's officially gone full retard!


This guy makes some interesting points.  Crossfitters can do the OP Man's work out, but they're juiced up like Jack Lalanne.  Do you guys think the OP Man's workout is realistic/effective?  Can you do it?

Yes, he quite obviously is!  Now let's work backwards from the answer.  The point of a match is tell a compelling and entertaining story of conflict and triumph.  "But what's your motivation?" That's the standard refrain of anyone watching your standard WWE shitshow match.  Why are these two people fighting?  What are the stakes, and why should I care?  Occasionally you'll have a Ric Flair retirement match which provides a sufficiently effective hook, but the vast majority of matches are literally time-fillers.

Now when you're dealing with worked fights, the story is everything; therefore, if you can't construct some semblance of a narrative requiring this fight to take place it runs the risk of falling flat.  The Cruiserweight Classic had compelling stakes which is why the emotional investment was so real, and the payoff when Hunter comes out is so significant.

Pro wrestling promotions are required to either create the perception of these stakes or entertain you with some unique attraction.  Unfortunately WWE lacks the creativity or the vision to give you anything that really builds up a match and develops the ongoing saga taken place between the combatants.  Bayley/Sasha Banks in Brooklyn isn't walking through that door!

Fortunately for all of us I knew Matt Hardy would come.  Matt Hardy is single-handedly masterminding the most creative and involved productions in the history of the business, PERIOD!!!  Now I knew he was an evil genius when he literally forced Vince to feature him when he committed to attacking Edge at every opportunity, but now he's literally constructed, not a kayfabe persona, but in fact a whole kayfabe parallel universe in which he can bring other workers and craft compelling storylines.  Broken Matt is almost out of place in the arena, because his Broken brilliance can't flourish in the confines of the ring.

This reminds me of when Undertaker fought Mankind in a dungeon.  Mankind was able to get his character over so well that the ridiculous idea actually turned out to be the more plausible alternative.  That was a more compelling match than their steel cage match wherein Mick tried to commit suicide on PPV just to get the match over.  The match wasn't as compelling as it was when the kayfabe was used to manifest an alternate reality in which the persona became real and kayfabe no longer existed.  THAT'S the sweet spot! 

That brings me to Broken Matt's recent production: DELETE or DECAY.  I basically ignore TNA (and pro wrestling in general for that matter), but when I watched the epic that was DoD the direction was so good that it sold the menace and threat of Rosemary's intentions, and got her motivations over extremely well. 

Furthermore, Matt Hardy is the single funniest pro wrestler going right now.  He's doing training camps with a Kangaroo and getting advice from Giraffes.  Brilliant!  He's so committed to getting his storyline over and never shortchanges on the selling and embodying the Broken brilliance.

The result is a production that created a legit conflict with  well-earned tension and credibility.  Prior in-ring promos were irrelevant, because the "keep it simple stupid" plot is clearly spelled out in ominous terms from the outset via Señor Benjamin.  So many different cool horror elements combined with the callbacks from Final Deletion made this the best thing in pro wrestling in the last few years.  I challenge you to provide evidence to the contrary.
