    This has to be the worst named event ever. Here's hoping they don't try to play up to the name, and have Lesnar flamethrow Joe's testicles

    Brock vs Joe has potential to either be one of the greatest matches of the year, or one of the most crushing disappointments of all time.

    I wanna see Bray work this into a promo:

    "FIRE SAVES US FROM THE DARKNESS.... CARRIES US INTO THE LIGHT... BUT YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL THESE GIANT BALLS OF FIRE... AND ONLY I KNOW HOW TO CUP THEM IN MY HAND..."

    I'm surprised Paul Heyman managed to keep a straight face while saying it last night.

    So looks like they changed the logo again

    Its no improvement on the original flying flaming testicles.

    Jesus, I've never heard of a worst name PPV.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,126 ✭✭✭✭Neil3030


    The principle ppv sponsor is this Rocket League game, which is like a futuristic football demolition derby looking thing. I'd imagine that's why they called it what they did?

    The game is amazing, It's soccer with rocket cars.

    Fair enough I only saw a few clips. I'm not a gamer these days.

    Brock was ufc heavyweight champion until he fought a decent fighter who proceeded to kick the living crap out of lesner and take his belt. CM punk went to the ufc also and got the lard beaten out of him. These guys are big softies it appears

    Jesus this **** is embarrassing.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,648 ✭✭✭Autochange


    I know but i would say they make a great living out it all the same. We all grew up watching the wrestling. Kane when he wore the mask was my favorite

    Can confirm Rocket League is a fun game, downloaded it for the PS4, played a bit of it after Batman Arkham Knight.

    When are you going to tell us its all fake?


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 1,648 ✭✭✭Autochange


    We all know its fake. Its no different to watching easterners or coronation street. Its entertainment. They are great athletes who go through pain and risk of serious injury to put on an entertaining show . Im just saying when some of them tried the fight game in real life they got whipped. Lesner was champ for a bit to be fair but was found out.

    Whilst you're not wrong really, what are you telling us that we don't already know?

    Ken Shamrock,Josh barnett,Lesnar,Dan Severn,Sakuraba,Nakanmura,Bobby Lashley,Funaki and Del Rio have all fought in mma with winning records, you sound like an armchair fan that has neither competed in any sport and thinks they know it all


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 12,717 Mod ✭✭✭✭riffmongous


    Getting found out after beating the likes of Mir, Couture and Carwin ain't all that bad


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,655 ✭✭✭✭briany


    I like the name as it feels like a throwback to the days when early IYH PPVs had different unique titles of varying naffness, e.g. In Your House: Beware of Dog. With a name like Great Balls of Fire, it's not likely to be used again, so would be of the same ilk.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,517 ✭✭✭IncognitoMan


    I've seen a few people saying "in your house" was a bad title. Am I the only one who doesn't think it's bad? I've always liked the sound of "WWE/F in your house".

    Surely it's at least not on the same level as "great balls of fire".


  • Registered Users Posts: 838 ✭✭✭A Rogue Hobo


    Completely agree, someone above mentioned Beware of Dog being naff but I disagree personally. British Bulldog challenging the ultimate face at the time in HBK therefore: Beware of (Bull)dog. Makes sense to me anyways! I always liked how the subtitles related to what storylines were occurring at the time in comparison to Great Balls of Fire which has nothing to do with anyone or anything.


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,516 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Any chance the will bring in Honky Tonk Man for a one shot deal to sing Great Balls Of Fire.


    Or maybe give Rockabilly one last run.
