Idk if it's because I missed the last week or two of 205 Live, but why are most of the heel cruiserweights suddenly cool with Enzo now aside from just being, well, heels? I'm not necessarily against this alliance because I see it as being a benefit for all heels involved (except maybe Gulak, I'd prefer him sticking to his morals in the case of 'Zo since he already has a character that can stick out on its own [a character that makes him stick out like a sore thumb compared to the others, mind you]), but was there any build or interaction leading up this? I know Daivari's been kissing up to Enzo by saying he was just giving into the peer pressure or whatever, but what about the other three? It just seems like typical WWE to quickly turn this into a straight face vs heel cruiserweights thing. It kinda cheapens that epic confrontation from a couple weeks ago seeing how quickly all these guys have changed their tune about Enzo. They should've kept the shades of grey going for a bit more, take some actual time having Enzo gradually winning over some of the heels on the 205 Live roster like how he's been doing with Daivari. Just paint a goddamn picture here, WWE! and dear JBL, please don't use them hokey ass "special effects" for Finn's demon ever agayn. Unless they start pouring some major money into their production budget (which they're doing the exact opposite), keep that shit out of a live product. It works for Lucha Underground because they tape shit well in advance and have time to make it not come out looking so cut-rate. It's saying something that an underground wrestling promotion has a better presentation than the top wrestling company. How awkward that shit must've been for the live crowd.
Kinda weird that they aren't actually Reptar-shaped like in the show (I'm sure they could wing it), but as long as they kept the same substance I guess. Looking up that store chain on google reminded me that it was apparently Sam Goody and Suncoast down here and I fucking loved those stores before they got closed down, mang
Gengar changed their profile photo
So not only is Jimmy Jacobs gone from his producing gig over the Bullet Club invasion, but now Neville has legit walked out on the company and will probably go the same way as Aries did. Goddamn mang
Episode Dos: "Validation" Ayatollah cautiously opened up the door to his loft to see a rather savage, Hawaiian-looking user on the other side of it. He had an avatar that came right out of the og Beyblade series to represent himself. This user's sheer presence was more than enough to make Ayatollah want to double back a bit in intimidation. Ayatollah thought to himself that this user, while not the most active or well-liked, was still a veteran, who brings with him four years of SBM experience and technical know-how of his surroundings. But will this user actually choose to help him with his plight, unlike the others? Or will the natural pecking order of things take precedence on this user's mind? His username is "Old Man Jenkins". Perhaps willfully choosing to be named after a character of the show this fansite was built around mean't that this user dealt in the business of seriousness, but the thing that really caught Ayatollah's eye was the hazard symbol situated at the very end of his username. "What the hell is that supposed to mean", Ayatollah pondered to himself. Is this Old Man Jenkins toxic to both him as well everything and everyone else around them? Ayatollah held his breath before choosing his next words carefully Ayatollah: Wh-Who are you supposed to be? OMJ: Isn't it obvious enough already? Ayatollah: I don't follow, hell, I can't follow you even if I tried. This site won't allow me to do so. OMJ: I am The Best, that's the biggest takeaway you really need to burn into that common sense of yours. Ayatollah: You don't exactly have the most posts or likes around here. Don't you think that's a bit of a stretch? OMJ: Trust me, I have far more validation to make such a stretch in my first ten posts than most everybody here have in their entire post counts. It's a well known, widely publicized fact that quality gets put on the back burner here in the SBMpire. The sheer lack of quality may as well be seen as law at the rate it steadily sinks lower and lower into its unmarked and well-deserved grave. The scene cuts to The Dump, where a recently returning member of the SBMpire has decided to choose that as their place to check in and give an update as to why they're not as active as they used to be. An egregious crime to some. Spongie33: You probably wondering why I'm been less active lately. I have been busy and I had not the time to get online. The users that frequent The Dump for high quality wares and treasures took great exception to this, in their eyes, "piece of garbage", and so they flocked together to defend their turf. OMJ: People around here, you'll quickly find that they are only good for cutting others down. WhoBob: Can an admin/mod lock this topic? WhoBob snidely blurts out, perhaps referencing to something that's sure to go over some people's heads, like mine. ACS, The Tide and Seeker and President Squidward each liked it, either in agreement or that they got the reference. Hard to tell given the players involved. The likes boosted WhoBob's standing in the topic, making his post most credible, at least for the moment. BobCarrotte: Well, another "this could have been a status" topic. BobCarrotte brings up, calmly lashing out at Spongie33 with a punch for each pointless word he wasted when creating this topic. OMJ: Taking cheap shots at each other. A recently patched in moderator-in-training, Trophy, intervenes by standing on neutral ground and instantly takes some issue with WhoBob's snide comment/reference, either in disagreement or the reference going over his head. Trophy: I could but there's no reason to. So, with the most powerful member to show up in the topic taking no course of action that suits their needs, The Dump connoisseurs take it upon themselves to take matters into their own hands. KarateSponge performs a dynamic entry on Spongie, drop kicking Spongie away with great force and into the farthest wall. KarateSponge: When you forget what a status is. OMJ: You just give them an angle to go from, and they'll happily jump at the chance to try and put themselves over any way they can. KarateSponge trades jabs with Spongie, who is proving capable of holding more than his own against the karate chopper. Spongie checks each blow Karate tries laying into him and punishes Karate with double the damage. Karate takes the air for an aerial assault, hoping to gain more ground, but Spongie effortlessly dodges his spin kicks and proceeds to knock Karate out of the air with a well placed good excuse that he calls his "Explanation". Despite his recent inactivity, Spongie is holding no visible rust against somebody who's been pretty active in his stead. Spongie is suddenly blown back by a large gust of wind. kite man: This is the most unneeded topic I've seen in a while. kite man declares, which is hard to take seriously since he more or less says that in almost every topic like this. A familiar member steps in now with a post that's even more unneeded. SOF: ofc it's pointless topic, where else you could post it? kite man joins up with KarateSponge in a joint effort to make Spongie33 pay for wasting valuable space in The Dump while SOF just watches. Karate attacks from down low as kite man levitates himself to attack from up high. Spongie is able to match their combined attacks until KarateSponge surprises him with a leg sweep before kicking Spongie into the air for kite man to have his way with Spongie by throwing him around with some Gust. KarateSponge jumps in and karate chops Spongie down to the ground, causing the ground beneath them to crack under the force of the blow. kite man charges up an Aeroblast and fires it, but Spongie uses the word of his friend irl to cancel out the Aeroblast and save his skin long enough to mount a counter attack, but they're all suddenly interrupted by a far greater force than Trophy. A user who's really grinding Prez's gears. Spongedude: What's more pointless than a "pointless" topic? Posting replies pointing out just how "pointless" it is. And why is it usually the fellas who harp on these silly, little things? Gents, I think the ladies of the forum have us beat by a mile when it comes to manners. Spongedude gets himself four likes for saying that, which allows him to overthrow WhoBob as the most credible user in the topic, further angering Prez. spongebob pokemonpants: poor spongie i hear you hard work wastes time spongebob pokemonpants chimes in, nobody else having the slightest fucking idea what he just said. Vuvuzela Smasher sarcastically comes at Spongedude with an attempt at humor. Vuvuzela Smasher: Pointless reply with pointless emoticons and pointless sexism WhoBob gives Vuvuzela a like, so it was all not for naught. Cream: ...to be fair, there are more active males than females on the site, from what i noticed. Cream, herself, gets a like for living up to her gender as being reasonable. Spongedude effortlessly smashes Vuvuzela's attempt at humor before shifting his attention towards Cream and her retort. Spongedude: This is true. Spongedude then proceeds to slap his wrist until it breaks and bleeds for taking such a cheap dig earlier, saving Prez the trouble and embarrassment of trying to do it himself. Prez then takes this free opportunity to dig into Spongie some more. Prez: hey I hope sponge forum is almost done ACS proceeds to split off a pound of his own flesh in private. He literally breathes life into it and that pound of flesh begins to take on a life of its own, becoming its own sentient user. This being, this repressed female part of ACS, takes Cream's post and bends it to her own whim to make it now read, "...to be fair, there are more active males than females on the entire internet, from what i noticed." Omnilectric: Sadly, this FTFY is more accurate. Growlie enters the fray now and looks to one-up pokemonpants on the baffle meter by saying Growlie: Well, as you all know, I haven't changed mine in forEver. WhoBob approaches Trophy now. WhoBob: you should know what I'm refering to lel. WhoBob says playfully, referring to the joke he made that flew over Trophy's head earlier. Not wanting anyone to challenge his authoritah, and with Spongedude still busy with punishing himself, Trophy proceeds to wails on WhoBob and makes him bow to his fist. Trophy: I'll take you under my wing, if you know what I'm referring to! With the members in power both distracted with problems of their own, kite man and KarateSponge circle around Spongie33 to resume their attack, but they both get called off. BobCarotte: Hold it! Bob pulls them both back in an effort to calm them both down. BobCarotte: Leave him to me. kite man and KarateSponge both oblige and leave Bob to get the job done, himself. Bob kicks things off with some heavy championship kickboxing kicks and knees, which Spongie has a tough time defending against. Spongie gets knocked down with a Focus Blast, Bob knowing that Spongie lacked the basic focus to even comprehend it. BobCarotte: We're about due for a topic truly worthy of being posted in The Dump. With Spongie down, BobCarotte prepares to finish him off with another one of his SpongeBob SBM episode parodies. ACS, in particular, takes special note of this. ACS: He's readying himself for another one of those "parody" fanfics. But how? What makes his so GOOD, yet so scathing? I WILL unlock the secret of parody, and I will come to understand their intricacies far more than anyone else! And once I do, everyone will be knocked dead. Or my name isn't AlphaWarhawk. The scene shifts back Ayatollah and OMJ in Rodriguez's loft. OMJ: People are willing to do all sorts of things to feel validated. What lengths are you willing to go to feel the same? Ayatollah: What is it to you? OMJ: I fancy myself as somebody who can bring the best out of people. And I'm probably the most help you're ever gonna get. Ayatollah: Then what do you suggest? OMJ: I propose a test. Ayatollah: A test on what? OMJ: Your will to live. OMJ assumes his stance. OMJ: So I ask again, what lengths are you willing to go in order to feel validated? Ayatollah: Your guess is as good as mine. Narrator: Ayatollah Rodriguez seeks validation, next time on Post Fiction V12!
I really miss the days when Bray Wyatt was just a neo-Waylon Mercy, Cape Fear-inspired (and actually creepy) cult leader. Remember how they built him and his Family up with those awesomely eerie packages when they first hit the scene? I'm more than willing to suspend my disbelief when it comes to Wrasslin but what they have him doing now is just too damn hokey for even me.
Now THAT'S a swerve. And THAT was a hell of a way to raise anxiety. Nice to see Corbin rebounding from his date with Cena too. Usos and New Day were top notch as always, Big E and that fucking diving spear mang. Well deserved fifth title reign for the Uces. Poor Nak, looking like Booker T after his Mania 19 loss to Haitch, not overcoming racism and shit.
