Why I Boycott Jack TV


It’s summer again.

You might be wondering where I’ve been.

I graduated. From high school. That suck of an institution, in reality. Been on a Stephen King frenzy. I’ve only really read him last summer, but it seems that all I want to do now is buy all his works. I just finished Different Seasons, and I’m just starting in on Blaze. I’d probably proceed to Dolores Claiborne. I don’t know what’s up with me. Don’t know what’s up with this blog. Or with music. Or with today’s literature. Or even with wrestling.

That last one strikes such a bad chord. Two months ago, Jack TV removed WWE from their network. At first, it was just a “satellite-thing”. But then weeks piled up and everyone lost all hope. You should see their Facebook page – it is completely littered with WWE fans ranting about the loss of the program and the establishment of seemingly suckish shows that could never get Jack ratings. 

I don’t think Jack TV will bring back WWE. With Walking Dead, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Family Guy on their team, I’m rooting for FOX now. They already released a teaser for WWE. I’ve been rather hopeful. But it’s taking too long. Yesterday, out of sentimental reasons, I actually turned the pages of my December 2010 copy of the WWE Magazine to the Body Shop and worked out like Dolph Ziggler, thinking, I just want to watch wrestling on my goddamn cable, goddamnit.

Anyway, I’m keeping track of the events that I have missed since WWE was unjustly torn off my cable. Lots of props to Jack TV for this.


Whatever happened to Eve and Zack Ryder?

Eve’s heel turn, of course

Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny



Lord Tensai?


That’s about it. Fuck Jack TV.






First thing Monday morning – I turned on the television to Jack TV’s live telecast of WWE TLC. I have to wonder why Dre would want to pass up on it. I thought the lineup was good. John Cena wasn’t on the show, which was odd because before, a lot of people – and I mean A LOT – paid good money to see him in the main events. Anyway, with that quick verity in check, I put the telly on display like I would a radio, heard the Philippines mentioned by Michael Cole, and in a span of three hours, we had our CHAMPIONS crowned.

Very likely.

1. United States Champion (Woo-nited States Champion): Zack Ryder

Dolph Ziggler vs. Zack Ryder. This match. Zack’s kewl and Dolph’s sexy. I like both guys, so I found the match rather interesting. Not to mention, the fans in Baltimore were totally hyped the entire night. I remember retweeting Zack’s “@DolphZiggler Tonight at TLC I will #fistpumpyourface” before the show began. There would have been a riot had Zack lost. So who better come out victorious but the Long Island Iced Z himself, Zack Ryder? WOO WOO WOO YOU KNOW IT BRO!!! It takes sheer hardwork and one social media revolution to make this well-deserved Crimmus miracle happen. Here’s Zack’s dad telling the whole world of how proud he is of our favorite new US champion. So are we, Papa Broski.

2. WWE Tag Team Champions: Air Boom

I did appreciate Michael Cole dictating a rundown of why Air Boom was bound to face Primo and Epico at TLC because I really have no clue how this happened. Did this all set in motion in SmackDown! (because I’m not much of a SmackDown!-guy)? I’m guessing that I just haven’t been paying much attention to the tag team division these days. We need more, please. Anyway, heard Air Boom’s great. Hooray, Kofi and Evan!

3. Divas Champion: Beth Phoenix

THAT’S RIGHT, YOU GO SISTAH! And was it just me or were Kelly Kelly fans completely dead during this match? Whatever. We all love Beth, and Beth’s fans are solid, yo. Hope she stays champion for the longest time because she’s amazing and because I wouldn’t want any of Kelly’s cohorts as champions. Eve better turn on the dark side because I like her as well, and WE JUST CAN’T HAVE HER NEXT TO KELLYasdfghjkl;

4. World Heavyweight Champion: Daniel Bryan

I really like Bryan Danielson and his massive Internet fanbase. Shame on you Michael Cole because here is your Heavyweight Champion!!!111! That’s right! And just so you know, I never paid attention to the Big Show vs. Mark Henry match until Bryan Danielson’s entrance song came up, and I found him running to the ring with his MITB briefcase. And just like that, SHOW’S OVER – even though he never really cashed in the briefcase at Wrestlemania like he said he would. But hey, plans change, it happens all the time. Hooray for Daniel Bryan and ha-ha on those who thought he could never make it as far. I smell a giant under loose for the title though.

5. Intercontinental Champion: Cody Rhodes

What the hell. He had a match?! I’M KEPT IN THE DARK!

6. WWE Champion: CM Punk

Well la-di-da. Of course, here is your WWE Champion, CM PUNK. Best match of the night, in my opinion. I mean, he was handcuffed twice – and one of those was to a turnbuckle – and he escaped BOTH times! It was a brutal match. And Punk survived it all. And he’s STILL our WWE Champion, so ha-ha on you and your dethronement attempts, Funkman. And with this, CM Punk leads a revolution with his friends.

So what’s going to happen when you’ve got two so-called “indy schmucks” on top of the WWE food chain? Seeing the main event picture on last night’s RAW made me guffaw just a bit. On one side, we had CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and Zack Ryder, and on another were Miz, Del Rio, and Dolph Ziggler. So… this is what had become of the WWE. Very nice. I have a feeling that we’re not going to see much of the Cena’s and Triple H’s and Rock’s in the season.

Kudos to independent wrestling. NYWC. ROH. GLORY. Take over.

One Lucky Penny


I have a lot of bruises right now. One on my right bicep from a kick (courtesy if Taekwondo), one on my knew from a blocked kick (Taekwondo again), and recently, on my hips – from carrying the keyboard slung over my shoulder and letting it swing hard on my sides. They’re all dang painful.

Today, after eight long years, I attended keyboard classes again. It’s funny how I wait too long to go back to the things that I’ve always liked. I had always thought that doing all those things as a child, as a beginner was just okay. But growing up made me realize how wasted my capabilities had been for not working on them and for leaving them not on my terms. I was a kid, and now I have grown. I’m coming back, with my own money to pay the enrollment fees, there are new faces, and I am different as well. I’m thankful I did this. I’m proud of myself, in fact for thinking things over, for discovering what I have, for trying.

Anyway, keyboard was great. Our instructor, Kuya O, is amazing. He used to play for Black Jack – and for those of you who don’t know, Black Jack is a singer here in the Philippines. Kuya O gave me a music notebook. It’s a relief that I didn’t bother to buy one. I like the efforts made so far. There are only two of us in the keyboard class. The other one’s an eight-year-old – Marell, I think. While she’s a complete novice, I am a bit more complex, so Kuya O had to instruct us in a different way. I am presently captivated with playing the keyboard again. We already have assignments so we can polish our fingering. I’m looking forward for more keyboard classes. I hope that I can play Chasing Cars soon. I’m very much fond of that song. I even had the PDF file printed before the sitting started. Nine pages of Snow Patrol.

Taekwondo was rather interesting today. A new trainer from Ateneo came in to teach us forms. I can’t seem to memorize mine. I heard we’ll be doing more forms come Friday, but I won’t be there since that’s my birthday (woo woo woo you know it bro!!111!!!).

I joined the competition at Laguna. I don’t know why. I’m not trying to put myself down, but this is the truth: I know I won’t win because the players there are vicious. I’d probably get hurt pretty bad. But I’m still going to try. I sparred against Jayson today. I got to do a head kick, twice – one of which made his headgear come off of his head. Even I was taken aback. Coach E then told him, “Don’t underestimate her”. It was a good day over all.

Slammy’s, Tumblr and Preoccupation


Edge and Christian make me extremely happy. Their meet at the Slammy’s was highly amusing. Edge didn’t like his award. Christian thought del Rio should have received it. This photo is too beautiful to just keep on my Tumblr account. D’oh, yes, I have a Tumblr account now. For months, I’ve been haunted with the decision of creating an account as such. Bet seems to get the hang of it. I, on the other hand, didn’t seem to know what I’d put in it once I do get an account. But soon enough, I found the light. My motive for that one is to post photos of past and current WWE heels, just for the heck of it. It’s sort of fascinating actually. I gained around twenty-five followers on the first two days that I started. I like my first days in Tumblr.

But I love this blog.

And I wrote that with a straight face. Can you imagine saying/writing the word ‘love’ with a straight face? That’s badass.

Here is the list of winners for the 2010 Slammy Awards (it’s ages late, I know):

  • Superstar of the Year: John Cena (wow, *big surprise* there, buddy – considering that it’s been a hellacious year for you. Have I mentioned that he got fired?)
  • Diva of the Year: Michelle McCool (what happened to the “Lay” part? >_>)
  • WWE Moment of the Year: The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXVI
  • WWE “Oh Snap” Meltdown of the Year: Edge destroys the anonymous GM’s computer
  • Shocker of the Year: The Nexus debuts
  • Despicable Me Award: CM Punk sings Happy Birthday to Rey Mysterio’s daughter
  • Holy %&^*%& of the Year: John Cena’s Attitude Adjustment on Batista through the stage
  • Guest Star Shining Moment: Pee-wee Herman vs. The Miz (REALLY INFINITY, ftw!!!!!1111!!!11!!!1!)
  • Knucklehead Moment of the Year: Lay-Cool gets beat by Mae Young
  • WWE Universe Fan Reaction: “Angry Miz Girl” Cayley (lucky kid. She’s already appeared on RAW TWICE)
  • “And I Quote…” Line of the Year: Michael Cole (I’m sure)

And here are the supplementary awards that I think you should also know of:

  • Best Performance by a Winged Specimen: Monday Night Raw chicken
  • Most Menacing Haircut: Tyler Reks
  • Best Family Values: Kane destroys Jack Swagger Sr. as his son looks on
  • Superstar/Diva Most in Need of Makeup: Sheamus (hey, now Sheamus has an award!)
  • The “Cole in Your Stocking” Award: Daniel Bryan attacks Michael Cole on WWE NXT (I love that. We had a blog entry for that. c:)
  • Outstanding Achievement in Baby Oil Application: “Dashing” Cody Rhodes (not Randy Orton?! D:)
  • Frequent Tweeter Award: Goldust
  • Best WWE.com Exclusive TV Show: WWE NXT (What?! RAW was robbed!)
  • Most Annoying Catchphrase: Zack Ryder for “Woo, woo, woo, you know it.” (which is NOT really annoying)

It’s a Shame for Fame


Since RAW‘s mystery GM gave Sheamus, the ever so foolish option of choosing his opponent for Night of Champions, The Celtic Warrior was all eyes on the matches that his possible opponents contested in that night. Simultaneously, I was also placing bets on my favorites. I assume you were doing the same thing. But who did Sheamus pick as the number one contender for his WWE gold? Is it:

  1. Edge
  2. Chris Jericho
  3. Randy Orton
  4. John Cena
  5. Wade Barrett

Tick-tock. Tick-tock. Tick-tock.

Okay, pencil’s up! The correct answer is…

None of the above! It was actually The Long Island Loudmouth, Zack-Attack, Zack Ryder! Woo, woo woo! You know it.

Anyway, this event only led to Chris Jericho, Edge, John Cena, Randy Orton, and Sheamus beating up Wade Barrett, which really wasn’t half as worse as what The Nexus had done in the past month. Not really very entertaining.

Season 2 Pros-Rookies List


Ah yes, NXT. It seems like it was only last week when Season One ended… oh, wait. That was last week! Well, time does go quickly! We now have a new set of pros and rookies! And because I was too clapped-out from editing the Marrella-Kozlov dance-off photos, I won’t be posting any pictures here. But if you really want to be familiarized with these guys and all that stuff, I suggest you click on the links that I decided to put up. WWE was “kind” enough to air their Twitter pages on live TV. 😀

The Miz – Alex Riley
John Morrison – Eli Cottonwood
Cody Rhodes – Husky Harris
Layla and Michelle McCool – Kaval
Mark Henry – LuckyCannon
Kofi Kingston – Michael McGillicutty
MVP – Percy Watson
Zack Ryder – Titus O’ Neil

And due to the Season One rookies’ ambush on RAW this past Monday (which, I really missed – thank goodness, WWE decided to air the whole thing on NXT), this season ended with the pros taking their revenge on the newcomers. This only means that Season Two will be a Pros vs. Rookies battle rather than an actual rookies competition. Amazing, isn’t it? Well, we all know that Kaval’s pretty “okay” with this whole mess. We did see him carrying LayCool’s golds to the ring on Friday night. Very professional, Kaval! Grudges came separately when you were bought. 😀
