Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Nov 16-22)

The story of main roster WWE this week is the story of Survivor Series, and the story of Survivor Series is the story of the tournament.

Main Roster

The tournament was great on Raw, with three great matches between Owens and Neville, Reigns and Cesaro, and Ambrose and Ziggler. Only Del Rio vs. Kalisto was a mess.

@midnight Power Rankings (Nov 16-19)

Right, Bryan. It's important not just to watch the episodes and rank the players capriciously and arbitrarily, but actually write up the results and post them. Arden Myrin won last week by about half a mile with her gleeful run of utter filth. Ron Funches and Heather Anne Campbell turned in their usual strong performances, and bonus points to mostly regular actor guy Michael Shannon for doing pretty good. Seth Rogen was a pretty impressive "get" as a guest, and did fine. Another strong week overall, so the bottom of the list isn't that bad.

1. Arden Myrin (M)
2. Ron Funches (Th)

Oh, The Metahumanity! (Nov 17-20)

Woo, new Netflix show time! I'm going to try to work through Jessica Jones one or two episodes every week, both because I don't quite have the time to blow through it, and also because if it keeps up like the premiere, I think breaks between episodes will be in order.

The Flash: "Gorilla Warfare"

Gorilla City! Well, proto-Gorilla City. On Earth-2. That I can't imagine we'll see again for another season, if at all. But still.

#BringBackMST3K, New Hosts, and Me

Until about an hour ago, I didn't know how I felt about the Kickstarter to bring back Mystery Science Theater 3000. Which is weird.

@midnight Power Rankings (Nov 8-11)

The theme for the week is first-timers I like from other things getting the red light. David Rees, Open Mike Eagle, and Diedrich Bader all went out swinging during a very solid week. Janet Varney cemented her status as an @midnight all-star with another first-rate performance, and I've loved Guy Branum since Totally Biased. The rankings are even more arbitrary and misleading than usual this week, because all twelve of this week's participants could have been top six in a crappier week.

1. Janet Varney (Th)
2. Guy Branum (Th)
3. Jen Kirkman (M)
4. Eugene MIrman (T)
5. David Rees (T)

As I suspected, the World Heavyweight Tournament has essentially sucked all the air out of the WWE right now, and with one exception, everything else is being ignored.

Main Roster

Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens advanced in the tournament, and will likely beat Neville this week to advance again. United States of Mexamerica champion Alberto Del Rio advanced in the tourney, and will definitely advance past Kalisto this week. Neither of them will win the tournament. But until they don't, nobody can talk about their next challengers. So those title pictures are stalled out.

Oh, The Metahumanity! (Nov 9-10)

Plot plot plot plot plotty pot plot.

The Flash: "Enter Zoom"

Any big showdown with the main villain of your season that happens six episodes in is going to go badly. But this goes really badly. So badly it helps make up for some weird, uncomfortable awkward scenes where Cisco tries to vibe off Harrison-2 and Park-1 tries to pretend to be Dr. Light-2.

Basically, it's an hour of clsterfuck, but it's supposed to be, so it mitigated the parts of the clusterfuck that were clusterfucked, if that makes sense.

Agents of SHIELD: "Chaos Theory"


Tonight, the second season of Going Deep with David Rees appears on the Esquire network, and this is the most important thing you will hear all day.

I won't embed the trailer, because YouTube are fucks who won't give me an embed link from the mobile version of their site, but here's a link:

Oof. Survivor Series is right around the corner, and things became a mess very quickly. Le's get to it.

Main Roster

Stuff happened this week, but a lot of it became very irrelevant very quickly after Seth Rollins landed badly wrestling Kane in Ireland and tore every single thing you can tear in a human knee and possibly some things nobody's ever torn before. He'll be out 6-9 months, stripped of the title, and Survivor Series is being turned into a tournament to crown a new champion, most likely Rollins' original opponent, Roman Reigns.
