    Am I the only one here to have never heard of her before? Joan Lunden I mean


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,850 ✭✭✭Pentecost


    I have Monday and Tuesday off, but I'm unable to do 5 am finishes any more. Especially after two nights on the beer already. Too old.

    Joan Lunden seems like a nice person and fair play to her.

    But as soon as you hear her talk about "Superstars and Divas" you know this whole speech was written by some WWE marketing/PR person. The main purpose was to put WWE over. The whole thing is so self serving from WWE's point of view. Will they even donate some of the network proceeds for this month to a cancer charity? I think it's really tacky to be honest.

    How come the creator of the crow movies/character didn't sue for ripping off the character???

    Whole award is a marketing gimmick.

    Is ric locked ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,933 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Stephanie is looking well btw.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,549 ✭✭✭The White Feather


    Maybe its just me but it felt like Ric was almost saying goodbye to the fans. Felt very strange.Dunno. Maybe im delirious from being up so late!

    Becky needs someone to give her a shout out! Hope she wins tomorrow but thats a different topic!

    As always a great HOF ceremony. But I'm sure like all of ye I need to go to bed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Classy and great speech from sting


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,390 ✭✭✭✭martyos121


    Ok, now I think Sting is lying about retirement.

    Maybe that's just the sleep deprivation talking though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,933 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Right lads back here at 1pm or so after a good few hours sleep ? And becky lynch you're gorgeous.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,553 ✭✭✭Blue_Dabadee


    A reoccurring issue with HOF this year is that it is a family show.

    Slick looks so young these days.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,455 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Any thing in particular worth watching?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,689 ✭✭✭sky88


    Sting speech is great. Stan Hansen was really as was snoop. Godfather was a nice and humble speech, jbl and Simmons were really good inducting him.

    The free birds first half of the speech was really good great stories.


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭Palo Alto


    Flair's speech was a disgrace, he must have thought he was getting his third HOF induction. He talked about his match with Michaels about as much as he mentioned Sting.

    Flair in being Flair shocker.

    The most important thing to take from last night, is that John Cena apparently got high with Snoop Dogg years ago! The thought of that is just brilliant.


  • Registered Users Posts: 599 ✭✭✭DepecheHead101


    Though it came off fun in the end my heart did genuinely skip a beat when Hayes referenced nearly pissing on Linda McMahon. Wow, like. APA are a great comedy duo too. Bradshaw's goofy deadpan face is the best around. Godfather seems like a lovely, sound bloke. Everyone said "I'd love to tell you a story but it's a family show!" way too much. Becky Lynch was hot property sitting there behind Bruno.
    Didn't mind Flair to be honest. It was a bit grating but compared to genuine scuzzbags like Hogan and Warrior he's just a loveable old dog doing his senile bit in front of a business he loves and still needs as an emotional support group.

    Regarding Ambrose he always brings that wobbly bit of his gimmick around with him. He could have been drunk but you'll never really be able to tell


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭Palo Alto


    Hayes was amazing. I was welling up a bit when Freebird came on. Such a mark.

    RIP Terry Gordy!

    I'd totally recommend watching the WCCW stuff on Network, it's surprisingly modern still, really the birth of Sports Entertainment (for better or worse).
