Jeremy : (11 October 2017 - 04:46 AM) Lol good call, slightly ghastly here. Hope some of you hockey lot take a bit and watch the pregame ceremonies from the home opener for VGK. Wonderful stuff. Also, UNLV football had an outstanding tribute on Saturday... ended up getting crushed on the field, but the ceremony was great. Do yourselves a favor and check em - ESPN probably has them on dot com :)
Turn_The_Page : (10 October 2017 - 01:56 AM) glad to hear you're ok!
KingOfMyWorld : (06 October 2017 - 09:20 PM) Are you sure you aren't a ghost... I mean this is a ghost town...
Jeremy : (06 October 2017 - 02:02 AM) I'm alive guys :) Still wonderful to be in Las Vegas
KingOfMyWorld : (06 September 2017 - 08:28 PM) Anthem already wants out of wrestling according to Sports Illustrated and PWInsider confirms... dun dun dun...
KingOfMyWorld : (06 September 2017 - 02:44 AM) The more things change at TNA... the more they stay the same...
Jeremy : (26 August 2017 - 08:20 PM) We had about a 70% eclipse in Vegas, but it was storming so it was dark anyway and we didn't see the sun that day :(
KingOfMyWorld : (23 August 2017 - 12:18 AM) I fight the spam as I can... so... anybody else in the Eclipse area? I was up in the national forest and it was something else to see, it was more the color it turned and the bugs going crazy thinking it was night that was the neat part.
Jeremy : (13 August 2017 - 08:56 PM) :(
Philip C. : (12 August 2017 - 05:43 PM) We need to get busy here agin for Summerslam haha. There's more spam bots than real people posting at the minute :(
Jeremy : (31 July 2017 - 12:57 AM) Anybody ever play HuniePop? This game is hilariously awesome
Jeremy : (30 July 2017 - 09:23 PM) :shifty:
KingOfMyWorld : (15 July 2017 - 04:02 PM) :bye:
Jeremy : (15 July 2017 - 03:20 PM) Hey!
KingOfMyWorld : (07 June 2017 - 08:55 AM) They made a variation this week with Big Cass getting attacked, I think it's a swerve though...
Jeremy : (06 June 2017 - 02:34 AM) That 2002 program (I think?) was when I first started getting back into wrestling after like '97-'98. I missed the good parts of the Attitude Era <_<
KingOfMyWorld : (01 June 2017 - 07:32 AM) The Enzo and Cass storyline mimics the HBK and HHH storyline from when HHH smashed HBK into the car window.
KingOfMyWorld : (01 June 2017 - 07:06 AM) I'm only keeping up with the weekly shows through youtube at this point, still watch the network ppv's but usually not live.
Jeremy : (01 June 2017 - 02:16 AM) I haven't watched Raw in a while and I wondered when they'd turn Cass on Enzo and begin the push. Guess it's going now?
KingOfMyWorld : (30 May 2017 - 10:40 PM) Does anybody not believe Big Cass is the one who attacked Enzo... I mean come on...

Mike Goldberg leaving UFC...

Longtime UFC play-by-play announcer Mike Goldberg will be leaving the promotion after UFC 207.
 
It was originally announced by Entimports and later confirmed by Luke Thomas that Mike Goldberg and the UFC will be parting ways following Friday’s event. The UFC has yet to make an official announcement on the matter. We will update as soon as we have more information.
 
Goldberg began working for the UFC in 1997. His skills were so desired that the WWE tried to get sign him up to work for their RAW television program. He has done play-by-play for the Detroit Red Wings, Minnesota Wild, and ESPN2.
 
Goldberg’s NFL debut was October 12, 2014. His error-filled NFL stint lasted exactly one game. He was also a Chicago Bulls sideline reporter during the Jordan years. He also has extensive collegiate basketball and football experience.
 
Given his resume, it’s safe to assume that Goldberg will land somewhere rather quickly. He’s probably negotiating several offers right now.
 
As for what the UFC will do without their staple commentator, it can be assumed that Goldberg will be replaced in the interim by Jon Anik, who handles FOX Sports 1 cards. Rumors have been circulating that the new ownership is looking for a more vanilla commentator like Jim Rome or Mario Lopez, but that is not confirmed.
 
One of the most experienced MMA play-by-play announcers, Mauro Ranallo, is currently serving as an announcer for WWE and will likely not be considered a candidate. Michael Schiavello also has loads of experience in the play-by-play role and has that seat in many promotions at the moment. Having “The Voice” become the voice of the UFC would please many hardcore fans.
 
For now, let’s all enjoy the classic “Here we go!” and “It is all over!” calls on Friday, because it is the last time we’ll hear them.
 
 

 

 

Anybody think WWE will make a play for him again? I remember way back when WWE tried to hire him and asked him to no-show the UFC event and show up unannounced on Monday.

Job did go to a former WWE announcer, but not JR...

 

Former WWE announcer turned ESPN broadcaster Todd Grisham will debut for The Ultimate Fighting Championship with the next UFC Fight Night broadcast on FOX Sports 1.
 
Grisham's name has been bouncing around as a potential broadcaster for the MMA flagship since Mike Goldberg departed the company last weekend (and on a side note, it was a pretty sad move that UFC didn't allow Goldberg to give any farewell comments).
 
Grisham, 40, worked for WWE from 2004-2011 in different roles, including being the lead announcer for the WWE Smackdown, WWE NXT, Sunday Night Heat and the WWE version of ECW.  He left the company for ESPN in 2011, where he has hosted Friday Night Fights and worked as a Sportcenter anchor.
 
Grisham changed his Twitter handle today to @GrishamMMA.
