Never has a town been more intersted in footwear. Still, Sosa's Shoes are still no Sosa's Boombox in the canon of inanimate objects weighing greatly on the fate of this Chicago National League baseball club.

Oh yes Guest Columns. I'm doing this for ME because I like lists - most of these are old enough that you don't care. It'd probably work better if I put links to some of that latter stuff on my webpage, but whatever



I'm 3 matches into a GdI comp and may finish some more if I don't get a call back soon. All these Cubs night games are messing around with my recapping time.

I shall go back to painting my room black now

For Borock Lesnar you describe his finisher as a "spinning fireman's carry into a Diamond Cutter". Wouldn't a more accurate discription be a "Spinning firemans carry into a DDT"?

lately I've noticed Lesnar spinning his opponents onto their backs before the impact. I've only seen this with Angle at Wrestlemania and on Big Show. So it might have been due to angle's neck/Big Show's size. So is the F-5 now a "Spinning firemans carry into a reverse spike DDT"? Or is this just a sometimes thing?

BRAIN CRAMP. I knew Diamond Cutter couldn't be right but I couldn't remember why.

I haven't made it past the opening of Tajiri/Eddie vs Team Angle yet from this week, so when I get back to it, if there's an F5 as you're talking about, I'll check it out and see if I can help figure out if he's doing something different. I wouldn't be surprised if it's something like Cena's DVD, where they appear to be going through so much effort to protect people that it doesn't look much like we're used to seeing it.

Thanks for the correction.

To pick a nit, isn't it really more of a spinning fireman's carry into Kanyon's Flatliner or Edge's Downward Spiral?

When you watch the end of the move (well, before he started this "flipping them onto their backs" business), the conclusion is Brock falling to his back while the victim tends to fall flat to Brock's left side, with Brock's arm just barely holding onto them, if at all.

It WAS when Goldust first returned, but they seem to have dropped to the electroshock gimmick and the name again.

RAW's just out there to screw with me. Darn them! They called it "powerslam" on Heat and RAW, so they're undecided/completely forgot.

Re: F5. As most of the free world already knows, there was no F5 on SmackDown!, but via still shot I did see what Brock was doing at Backlash. I *think* it was a neck protection variation of the move (Show's fat so you take extra precautions rather than lose control, and the reasons with Angle are obvious).

I think I'd still call it a DDT, because that's the way the WWE has tried to make them safer - instead of taking the (45 degree) angled bump [which guys like RVD and Val Venis will still do for the exgarrated headstand sell], the vic usually ends up going down flat on their face (like it's some sort of reverse bulldog).
