Lets Play WWE 2K16 - Balor The Belt

Image
It's WrestleMania weekend, and boy, some people over on YouTube can't understand that not every wrestling fan is gonna have the same opinions as them...anyway, it's time for the weekly adventures of Frankie 'Big Ham' Franco via the 'My Career' mode feature

We open with apparently a showdown on NXT between myself and Baron Corbin (who really should not have lost the way he did last night)... but no, on my way to the ring I am jumped by Finn Balor... and this is why I called this entry 'Balor The Belt'.. as in below the belt. Manage to fight off the former NXT Champion (because in the game, Kalisto is the champ) and then get interviewed by Renee Young where I declare I want a match now. Yeah I'm basically going the baby face route with the Big Ham.

However, the night isn't done yet, Finn has a match against Bo Dallas... and I happened to get involved with... I figured I'd try and get Bo DQ'ed by attacking Finn... which just got me ej…

 Hello and Welcome to the Basement and this week's Tale From The TARDIS

First off, so it was indeed an epic prank that Bruce Campbell pulled yesterday with that very convincing looking promotional image... but hey, it got people excited.

Peter Capaldi had this to say about what the next companion for the Doctor : "I think the companion has to be someone who’s not so impressed by the Doctor – she’s not an assistant, she’s not a servant, she can’t be that – she has to be someone who really says ‘are you sure that’s the right thing to do? What are you doing?’ and also doesn’t take him seriously,"

So in other words: she's going to start out pretty much like every single companion, and since we've been going over classic Doctor Who, I can tell you that Barbara and Ian started out that very same way.

Anyway, let's get to this week's episode The Wall of Lies, which is part 4 of the Marco Polo story.
We open with Marco, Ian and Tegana arriving at th…

Hello and Welcome to the Basement...

NXT Takeover Revival finished airing about an hour ago, and like everyone else on the net, I'm going to give my thoughts and opinions on tonight's show. And let me remind you that these are my opinions. My point of view on certain things will obviously be different than others.Also I am trying to remember everything I said in the video above.

First a reminder of my predictions

I picked Samoa Joe to defeated Finn Balor, Asuka to defeat Bayley via ref stoppage, The Revival to defeat American Alpha, Shinsuke Nakamura to defeat the Quebecer (Sami Zayn), Baron Corbin to defeat Austin Aries and Elias Sampson to defeat Apollo Crews.

First match of the night was The Revival defending the NXT Tag Titles against American Alpha... and Gable and Jordan got the win, some I'm 0-1 right off the bat with my predictions. It was a hot 'opener' as it was constant motion with very little slow down, which wasn't the best way to show…
