I don't get on reddit for the weekend, and SquaredCircle goes and does this.

Bravo, boys and girls. Bravo.

I don't get it, this is literally indistinguishable from how this stuff is discussed everywhere on the internet.

This is great. They might be putting WWE over for the Things I Like To Read About Without Enjoying The Actual Thing Belt. Pushing right past jobbers like EVE Online and soccer.

Thanks for the World War II spoiler alert. It's been in my Netflix queue forever.

Really? It's pretty specific pro wrestling jargon. "My professor will never go over" "turning face" "relegated to jobber status" "that Judas heel turn was nothing but a desperate grab for ratings" "the booking has gotten so stale" etc etc

I don't even watch wrestling, but these are hilarious.

You guys, they didn’t even really kill Sean Bean on Game of Thrones! I can’t believe you suckers all watch this fake TV show!
