Saturday is Before Sunday

First off, what did you guys think of Smackdown on Friday night? I loved CM Punk's promo!

I went for my usual run this morning, but I already miss the gym at EA. I'll have to get a membership to a gym in LA -- I doubt I can just roll up on muscle beach and hit the weights...

"WWE Vintage Collection" was on today, and they dedicated the entire show to WrestleMania XII's 60 minute Iron Man Match between Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. I remember when I was younger and watching this, I was amazed by HBK's entrance. The funny thing though is that I don't know whether that image is something I remember experiencing, or the WWE showing that video so much, that I just took the thought from that...

I'm writing late because we just got back from our going away party, I'll definitely miss the folks here in Vancouver, but I know I'll still see them -- this industry is smaller than one would think.

All for tonight (it's 1:09 AM)

  1. Congrats on your move to THQ. That WWE Vintage Collection always brings back the memories. Talking about ''Vintage Wrestling'' I and many others would absolutely love for THQ to make another legends game. The roster of the last game was good but the game seemed very rushed with many guys omitted :

    Randy Savage, Demolition,Paul Orndorff, Ricky Steamboat, Sid Justice, Tully Blanchard, Powers of Pain, Owen Hart, Tito Santana, Razor Ramon, Lex Luger, Natural Disasters, Nasty Boys, Vader, Diesel, Harley Race, Adorable Adrian Adonis, Dynamite Kid, IRS, Steiner Brothers, The Funk Brothers, Rick Martel, Miss Elizabeth, Marty Jannetty, Sensational Sherri, Smoking Gunns, Doink, Virgil, Tully Blanchard, George "The Animal" Steele, Power & Glory, Bad News Brown,Tatanka, Akeem, Jerry Lawler, Skinner, Papa Shango, Slick, Cowboy Bob Orton, Freddie Blassie, Barry Windham, Harvey Wippleman, 'Kona' Crush, Bob Backlund, Don Muraco, Texas Tornado, Mr. T, Goldust, Giant Gonzalez, Haku, Boris Zhukov, Dino Bravo, The Mountie, Captain Lou Albano, Hillbilly Jim, Killer Bees, Bushwhackers, Men on a Mission, APA, Adam Bomb, Ludvig Borga, Headshrinkers, Butch Reed, The Berzerker, Bruno Sammartino, Danny Davis, Ken Patera, Billy Graham, Godwinns, Beverly Brothers, Ahmed Johnson, Jeff Jarrett, Marc Mero, Mankind, Ken Shamrock, Brooklyn Brawler, Red Rooster, Brian Pillman, Ronnie Garvin, Goldberg, Brock Lesnar...As you can see alot of useful guys left out.

    Why no Mean Gene Okerlund? Why nothing like the Brother Love Show, Piper's Pit, Snake Pit, The Barber Shop, Flower Shop either? No Jesse Ventura and Gorilla Monsoon on commentary? Why so many moves left out? Put a referee in the game, Put in weight detection, make the wrestlers look how we REALLY remember them etc. etc.

    The point is that this franchise could have endless potential. Here's hoping you make another improved version very soon. OK rant oveer.
