1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    What really annoyed me about Sandow was how they used him after he won MITB about two years ago (or maybe it was only a year ago). He basically pissed away the title shot. I think it was because the backstage staff realized after he'd won that they'd rushed him along too fast and he wasn't ready to win the belt.


    I do laugh when he says stuff like "John Cheena".

    How the hell is it fair that Roman Reigns gets to wear that vest when he wrestles. It reminds me of when Cowboy Bob Orton used to wear that cast, even though his arm was obviously not broken. He used it to unfair advantage.

    my buddy keeps wrestling indies and doing dark matches for wwe. i think he may have missed his shot but i have a ton of respect for him, works as an accountant, helps take care of his mom, drives hours to indie shows and has 3 kids at home to deal with. trains as hard as anyone I have ever seen.

    ^ welcome back kunk.

    yeah, I'm probably talking from my ass but from all those stories about wrestlers starting out, trying to make a name in the indy scene, performing in some high school gym for a few dollars- that's a shitty way to do what you love and I have a ton of respect for them.

    Haven't listened to it lately because I haven't the time. They still do their power rankings? Who is no. 1? Reigns?

    No, that was just a one time thing to play off of a column that Shoemaker had written for Grantland earlier in the week.

    I really want to read the Vince Russo article about VKM. Supposedly it's not a hatchet job, but it just honestly details some of VKM's weird idiosyncrasies.

    I listen to Jericho's podcast. Austin's too. JR's is so so but still very listenable
