Such a frustrating ending. Makes me believe the show-runners don't even know themselves who Negan killed yet, like they just shot that to buy some time. The better ending would be having the camera on Rick, screaming or just the expression on his face as you hear Lucille (the bat) coming down over one of his groups skull.
And I came up with that in one thought. Surely that would have been a better ending, right?

It was probably just to fuck with the betting and maybe to distract from A.J. being booked to lose clean again to Jericho for no apparent reason.
On the otherhand though Owens will probably get a title program against Reigns later in the year. So he would had to have dropped the title at some point and Zayn's only really just been introduced to the main audience. They like to have a chase/build-up to the big moment when a baby-face wins the title and unfortunately they probably see him winning the IC Title one day as his peak.
A4L did you watch NXT Takeover and see the Nakamura match? Easily the highlight of the weekend.
AJ losing to Jericho didn't bother me, because as the match was going on, I realised that Jericho hasn't won a Wrestlemania match in a long time so he was due a win. Besides, this was rectified the next night on Raw, as he pinned Jericho clean in the fatal four way and Styles standing tall was the last thing you saw going off the air.
As for Reigns, I sense a heel turn coming. He showed some heelish mannerisms on Raw last night. With Styles being his first title defense, I can't see AJ winning, so my theory is Reigns (on the verge of turning heel) will feud with babyface Styles for the next month or two until babyface Rollins returns and begins that inevitable feud.
No, admittedly I don't watch much of NXT. They've just announced a tour of the UK for June and Balor is on all the posters for it, so I'm guessing he isn't gonna get called up to the main roster anytime soon. I'll try check out Nakamura's match when I get the time.

Zack Ryder gets his Wrestlemania moment, and even after all this time, the crowd are right behind him, then he loses the title the next night on Raw to The Miz of all people. Was the point of Ryder winning at Mania simply for the shock factor? If so, this is a case of the powers that be cutting off their nose to spite their face. Absolutely baffling.
#5 Re: Guns N' Roses » AXL In ACDC??? » 399 weeks ago
I know this may have been said earlier in this thread but I hope that even if it's just for 10 shows that he doesn't destroy his voice on these dates. It's okay doing "Whole Lotta' Rosie" every now and again with GNR, but I could see Axl really struggling with songs like "Back In Black" and "You Shook Me All Night Long" and those are just the hits that fans would expect to be played.
If only someone got him a personal trainer maybe we'd get something close to 2006 Axl, but even at that, I think he'd still struggle. I'm not bashing the guy, but it's just typical that this comes up now at the same time as one of the biggest musical reunions in history. At least stuff is happening I guess, so we'll see how it all plays out.

This is amazing to see so many from 'The Golden Era' of GNR Forums making a return! I don't think anyone particularly wanted to leave in the first place, it was just obviously down to the lack of activity on the bands part that forced some forum-members hands.
Now we just need Hammy and Evolution and get the wrestling thread going again!

I didn't know about The Seeker either. That was interesting.
Being away from the boards for so long, I was unaware and googled this as soon as I read your post. I thought this was amazing at first but the more I watched, the more the massive grin dropped from my face. I'm convinced he's miming this. But why?

I don't like him either. Main reason I don't bother with any of Slash's recent material.
I always thought of Kennedy as the DJ Ashba of vocals. He hits the notes, but without any passion or feeling; substituting showboating and clichéd attempts to gee-up the audience for any actual charisma.
It always baffles me why some people say that they don't like Myles and these always seem to be the same people who worship Chris Cornell. I think they're two similar styles of front-men so I can never understand why one is held in such high regard over the other.
As for playing without passion and feeling? What? I can't even understand why someone would say that. He's one of the most passionate soulful rock singers out there today, but I will actually agree with you that he's not a traditional front man. I don't think he showboats in the slightest, I think he's actually uncomfortable with that side of the gig more than anything. If he's lacking anything as a frontman I think it would be the onstage persona and Myles would even admit himself that he's not the most charismatic performer out there, but in regards to the vocal side of things, he's one of the best. Obviously people in the business agree, such as Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and Warren Haynes amongst many others. Not only that, but he's proven time and time again that he's the most consummate professional, who carries himself well and is great to fans, and I've always felt he's never been given enough credit for that. I've met him several times and the guy is just a class act.
And regarding not singing with passion you can't watch this and say there's no soul in this: (this was from a few years ago before every singer and their cousin began singing this classic)
