    Lucha Underground, is now on Netflix! Seasons one and two, however. But still, this is excellent news for this without the El Ray Network!

    Definitely an interesting design, the ring on top though seems kind of tacky.

    Funny thing is I respect her saying that, but on the list of awful chants, that ain't even in the top 100. You haven't seen the level of hatred for wrestling crowds that hijack the show completely and put the attention on themselves instead of the talent by chanting "WE ARE AWESOME! WE ARE AWESOME!"

    Oh trust me, I think she likely knows. Just that, well, shouting Botchamania like monkeys is still disrespectful no matter what.

    Oh well sure, Val's been doing this forever, she knows all about bad chants. It's just, ya know, by now as a wrestling fan you've seen so many bad chants that "Botchamania" or "You screwed up!" is at least talking about what you're watching and to me feels like a good natured rib depending on the audience. It's far less irritating than fans who hijack a wrestling match to get THEMSELVES over which is the dirt worst and is usually the modus operandi of RAW after mania crowds.

    Of course, it also says a lot about where we are in 2017 (and for many years now) that there are so many annoying fan chants that you might as well have a tier system for them. You should have seen RAW this past Monday, the go-home show for Mania. Bayley and Charlotte were trying to cut a promo on each other at the start of the show to hype the women's championship 4 way and literally only talked for about 2 minutes before the Crowd started chanting "CM PUNK!" for no reason just to rib the McMahons. I'm all about fans having fun at wrestling shows, it's cool to riff on what you're seeing....if it's called for. But now that Post-Mania crowds made literally hijacking the show cool, like I said, it's not really about the act anymore.

    That's why I always use the cardinal rule about chants, and I'd say most fans that get it use the same golden principle: Is this about what you're watching, or is this about YOU?

    Well clearly what they're doing is make it about them since why else would they shout "Botchamania" of all things?

    Smackdown! Live is actually coming to Rochester June 6th. Thinking about seeing but I want to see the ticket prices first, since I've spent a considerable amount of money already.

    I have secured tickets for Smackdown! Live this June 6th with me and my "way more into wrestling" older brother. This will actually be the first time I'll be seeing a televised WWE show, for my brother it will be his third.

    Yeah. 2AM is still considered night time. Like, if someone goes out and plans to come back at 2AM, they don't say that they'll be home the next day.

    If one of the wrestlers, when they're in the 8th round, accidentally sets fire to the wrestling floor, go easy on him.
