  1. The Wrasslin' thread

    I'm probably gonna give it two weeks after WrestleMania then cancel my BTSports subscription. The stuff i'm seeing on RAW and Smackdown isn't as great as the stuff I used to watch as a kid. They got rid of all the wepons and chairs. I've only seen one woman go through a table since I started watching again and it wasn't really a good bump, just ran right into it. The storylines arn't really exciting me like they used to. I'm kinda excited about the resurection of the beast thing with Randy Ortan and Alexa Bliss but if it comes to nothing before WrestleMania or a few weeks after then I'm done. Can just catch up on the network if i ever wanna watch the modern stuff again.
  2. N-Europe turns 16!

    Yeay? I joined when this place was called revo-europe. Around the time the Gamecube was winding down and the Wii was yet to be revealed at E3. around mid 2006 i think
  3. The Wrasslin' thread

    So i'm around late April '98 in my nostalgia trip. Ken Shamrock and the Rock are fighting over the IC title and Owen Heart is fighting for the Euro title with HHH. After Shawn left after Wrestle Mania 14 HHH has taken over DX and added in X-Pac. At the time I guess X-Pac was just released from his WCW contract because he was cutting a promo in the ring about how Scott Hall and Kevin Nash couldn't be there because of World Championship Wrestling and Eric Bishoff. Then HHH starts talking about how he has a big dick and the promo ends. They later recruit the new age outlaws to DX during a tag team cage match between the outlaws and Cactus Jack and chainsaw Charlie. Undertaker had alot of promo stuff but not alot of wrestling between WM14 and Unforgiven. He was appearing during some minor card matches and chokeslamming the guys in the ring and calling out Kane. There was this part where Paul Bearer was calling him out to wrestle at his parents grave site before Kane and Paul pull up in a herse with his parents coffins and set them at the top of the ramp before Paul Bear goes inot a promo where he had a dream of Kane standing in a ring of fire and they start to set up the inferno mach at Unforgiven before Paul sets one of the coffins on fire and Kane chokeslams Undertaker into the other coffin. Another minor storyline is between Sable and Luna. At this point Sable was getting sick of Marc Merro's shit and started slapping him around a bit. Guy had alot of matches with Goldust to set up the Sable / Luna stuff which resulted in Luna challenging Sable to an "evening gown" match at Unforgiven which would later become the bra and panties match a year or so later. Main storyline is about Steve Austin wining the WWF Championship at WrestleMania 14 from Shaun and Vince McMahon is pissed about how hes not the kind of champion he wants him to be so Austin challenged McMahon to wrestle for the championship himself and everyone looses their shit before McMahon agrees and they get in the ring only for Dude Love to interrupt the match before the bell rings which starts this rivelry between Dude Love and Austin for the title. At Unforgiven '98 during the inferno match Kane walks out of the ring half way through before walking up the ramp and Vader comes out and starts beating on him. I think this is only a few months before Vader retired because I don't really see alot of him anymore. So Vader beats Kane back to the ring before the Undertaker jumps over the top rope and just dives into both of them, then Undertaker starts beating on Vader up the walkway again to pull the cameras away so Kane can put on his little fire sleve before he loses the match when the Undertaker sticks his arm in the flames and he runs off down the walkway with his arm on fire. Main event was Dude Love and Austin for the title and McMahon was sitting at ringside. Foley takes a few hard looking bumbs onto the concreat floor and the ringside steps. There was this stage in the back for Jeff Jerred's little country music concert which i'm surprised was left in, ususally the network edits out all the copywrighted song stuff. Austin suplexes Foley off the stage onto the concreat and JR is going nuts as usual. They fight back to the ring before the referee takes a bump so theres nobody to count, they start fighting outside the ring again and Foley tries to hit Austin with a chair before having it taken from him and hitting McMahon over the head with it. Gets back in the ring, hits the stunner. Ends up pinning Dude Love and doing the count himself before winning and retaining the title. Few minor points the Rock has taken over the nation of domination allowing Farooq to do singles stuff and have a small rivelry going. Also it's nice seeing Brian Christopher who would later go on to be part of the Too Cool tag team. Was one of my favourite tag teams as a kid. They also are trying to introduce these new Japanese guys that would run in from the crowd and interrupt Taka Michinoku's matches before jumping back inot the crowd and running away. I liked seeing how the Japanese photographers at the side of the ring would get relly excited and start snapping alot of pictures when they ran in. I think they became a team called Kai&Tai? or something? They are also starting to introduce Val Venus. I remember watching those wierd promo ads with my brother and feeling really awkward. They're putting him over as an ex-porn star turned wrestler? He would moan alot and make alot of porn jokes while surrounded by half naked girls or naked women in bath robes. Sorry if it's too long TL:DR: I like late 90's and early 2000's WWF.
  4. The Wrasslin' thread

    Started watching Raw from 1998 on the network. Just finished the No Way Out '98 PPV so far and they have this Mike Tyson / Steve Austin angle gonig. Before that at the Royal Rumble '98 there was this nice casket match between Undertaker and Shawn Michaels where Kane comes out near the end and screws over Undertaker before he takes an axe to the casket and sets it on fire while Paul Bearer eggs him on and JR is screaming bloody murder like "The Undertaker is inside gawd damn it!!" After that Undertaker was gone. Haven't seen him since on Raw or the No Way Out PPV after the rumble. They'll probably bring the guy back at WrestleMania 14 or something. Should get a nice loud pop if it does happen. I still have six episodes of Raw to watch before that though.
  5. Haven't touched Bowser's Fury yet. I need to 100% 3D World first!! Currently near the end of the Bowser carnival world. Got every green star stamp and flag pole so far. If I remember correctly there are only two other worlds after that? I think Then the bonus world after you beat the game the first time.
  6. Mario Golf! for sure getting that. Wasn't really impressed with Skyward Sword HD. Was hoping for Wind Waker myself.
  7. Pets are funnies

    Photo was taken a while ago. My dog is the one in the red collar
  8. "Too much water" 7/10
  9. The Wrasslin' thread

    Seems they don't show Smackdown or Raw live on the network. So I had to sign up for BT Sports and i'll use the network account for the pay per views.
  10. What Have You Bought?

    Why is the keyboard wet? did they dunk it in the sink before taking the photo?
  11. Mass Effect Legendary Edition (14th May 2021)

    I hear they're repositioning the camera in a particular cutscene to not focus so much on Miranda's butt. This is an outrage and i'm not buying the game because of it.
  12. Drunken thread ftw!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm dssapoined. You guys din;t drink like you used to...big sad martins
  13. Your 2021 Gaming Diary

    Started playing Bulletstorm: Full Clip this afternoon after having it sit in my library for a year or so. Not too far in but it teaches the mechanics of the game pretty well from the start. The whole leash and kicking mechanics are pretty fun too. Still trying to get 120 stars in mario Galaxy, i think i'm around 75-80 so far, shouldn't be too long. Then I do it all again with Luigi.
  14. Was she in Super Hornio Brothers?
  15. The Wrasslin' thread

    So I finally gave in and got a WWE Network account since I wanted to watch the Royal Rumble. It's kinda wierd having the arena so quiet that you can hear what they're saying in the ring. I've only watched half so far since hell if i'm sitting on my ass for four hours. Finished watching the women's rumble atleast, i'll watch the rest later. I have no idea of what storylines they're pushing or even who anyone is since the last time I watched wrestling was in 2004 Once I watch a few episodes of Raw and Smackdown then I might get into the swing of things and start making sence of what they're trying to do and who everyone is. Is Vince still running things or has he retired?
  16. CONTROL (XB1, PS4, PC)

  17. Dragon Quest XI

    I spent way too much time in the casino getting that longsword that ultimatly became useless way later in the game. The Bunny Suit recepie however was a staying point on Jade for the majority of my playthrough. By which I mean as soon as I got Jade into the party. It's like a semi-serious Final Fantasy but everyone looks like a Dragon Ball character and all the enemies have wildly punny names.
  18. The GameStop....swizzle?

    I'm not really into buying stock at all. I considered buying Nintendo stock about a year ago since I like the company but I have no real idea on how to make money traiding. I've just been sitting here watching old rich men lose their shit on Fox Business and MSNBC while I laugh my ass off. It's nice to see some day traider actually make alot of money off of this and it's kind of making me want to get into traiding small stocks.
  19. Been working my way through Tokyo Ghoul on Netflix. Pretty good show so far but i'm only abot 6 episodes in. Gonna be a while untill i can work my way through all three seasons.
  20. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    SO SHopTo got restocked and I was never informed. You'd think they'd e-mail the guys that had their pre-orders cancelled first but no...I guess not, they make it a free for all.
  21. N-E Book Club (or just a chat about books)

    Currently working my way through Childhood's End. Only one chapter in but it looks prommising.
  22. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    Surely you are already thinking about playing it or you wouldn't have posted in this thread? I have horrible self-control
  23. Cyberpunk 2077 (10th December 2020)

    Is this game fixed yet? I'll wait untill the Febuary update before I even think about playing this again.
  24. My Console Modding Experiment

    You're going to tare appart an orange spice Gamecube?! But it's the spiciest of the cubes!
