Oh she’s Lance storm trained??.. Color me intrigued


#4344

I hope Vince fucks off once the new XFL gets off the ground.


#4345

Wanting him to loosen up or let go of the reigns is one thing and completely acceptable as a thing to want.

To wish death though? Naw.


#4346

Wizkids and WWE team up to make a WWE themed Heroclix set.

If this was like 6 years ago when I heavily played clix I’d be going fucking bonkers right now. Even so I may still pick these up for being a fans sake.

I still have all the street fighter clix and tmnt clix.


#4347

I mean…is heroclix still a thing amongst the youngsters?


#4348

Uh, I don’t think so? It’s not a game intended for kids. Never has been. It’s a fairly complicated game.


#4349

Brock Lesnar should have been at the top. He’s kinda like Shao Kahn…


#4350

No. He shouldn’t. It’s in reference to Kofi’s gauntlet match next week.

Fucking A. It’s like you don’t even exist in this reality.


#4351

Interesting.

I used to see them when I was regularly going to the comic book shop…I thought it was simply figure collecting.


#4352

Naw. It’s a pretty intense grid based strategy game. But due to all the popular IP’s that have teamed with Wizkids over the years a lot of people like buying them just for collectors sake. IE why I never sold or gave away my Judge Dredd, Hell Boy, TMNT or Street Fighter clix

My old manager when I worked at the comic book shop; her husband was a actually a digital sculptor for wizkids and worked on about 12 sets. And those sets are regarded as some of the best sculpts the game has produced.


#4353

It is fox

They want an edgier more sports based show

And they want to take over production

I am ready


#4354

Considering how much fox paid for broadcasting rights I think they’re well within their rights to suggest how their potential network flagship show should be ran.

On the other side, it’s corperate meddling which I find very off putting and shady.

But I think slowly creeping out of the PG era is a good thing and Fox is the catalyst to help that happen.


#4355

WCW 2.0 then, just you watch…


#4356

I hope it’s not a large amount of corporate meddling. From an optimistic view, maybe it’ll make things more interesting. On the other hand, it could be real bad if Fox has ideas that WWE/Vince/HHH/wrestlers are totally against.


#4357

Stop


#4358

Really fox is trying to maximize their investment.

WWE knows the reach of terrestrial tv.

I mean Eddie, Rey, Cena, and Batista got minted on smackdown.

Most of the young people on roster grew up watching sd

I think wwe has a major opportunity. Bigger than upn, bigger than the usa deal

If they get solid ratings and fox also wants to get nxt and 205 and they want to bring back talking smack

That fox executive specifically refrenced wanting to bring talking smack to fs1

I so want that to happen

Current bryan ranting on talking smack


#4359

Y’all. I was kidding. Chill.


#4360


#4361

GUFFAW…GUFFAW!!!


#4362

I had to google what this means.

Today I learned. :+1:
