Let’s get the main story out-of-the-way first. Okay; this past weekend at Paradise City Comic Con (in Miami, FL), WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley saved two people cosplaying as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters Casey Jones and April O’Neil from being attacked by someone cosplaying as The Walking Dead‘s Negan by performing his Mandible Claw submission hold on him during a cosplay wrestling event. Let that sink in for a bit, and I’ll be back with you after the break. Continue reading “OF COURSE, WWE Legend Mick Foley Fought The Walking Dead’s Negan At A Comic Con Last Weekend…”
First off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN from The PractitioNERD! I hope that you have fun, stay safe, and enjoy the costume parties and trick-or-treating! Now, the common route people take when deciding a Halloween costume is selecting one that aligns with their interests. Some people point toward their professions, so in the case of architects and those in the design-build profession, this often results in elaborate contructions of elaborate costume pieces resembling buildings and other structures. Thanks to a recent poll by the folks over at ArchDaily, their readers from around the world submitted their architecture-themed costumes.

Blizzard’s hit online multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch is fun and awesome. I know it. You know it. Mechanical cosplayer Mike Carambat knows it, as well as his daughter (who is also a cosplayer). Carambat, who goes by retroresource on Reddit, has built a walking D.Va mech. This mech even comes with four thrusters that blow smoke and strobe, that arms move up and down via the controllers, a steering mechanism within the torso, an old electric wheelchair forming the base, and rotating guns rotate that light up in different colors. The mech even features a sound system with D.Va voice-overs, a rear exit hatch and even a fan to keep the pilot cool.

Performing acrobatic moves in the course of a professional wrestling match is risky and — in some cases — dangerous, but to some wrestlers it’s a second-nature thing. Now, think about performing a move like the moonsault, which involves flipping backwards from the top rope onto your grounded opponent while landing chest first. Now, think about doing a moonsault while dressed in a full mascot costume; those things make everyday tasks like walking and running difficult, and you’ll do/see these tasks in EVERY wrestling match. Well, nobody told that to this guy dressed as Pikachu… Continue reading “Who Wants to See A Pro Wrestler Dressed as Pikachu do a Perfect Moonsault? (It Should be EVERYONE…)”
Honestly though, the more that’s forgotten about RoboCop’s short stint in WCW, the better…
Anyway, the prime takeaway of professional wrestling is that it can be really weird. One can also say that a prime takeaway from Japan is that it TOO can be really weird. Over at reddit, a video that has been making its rounds — by which its existence is proof of a loving God — came from an All Japan Pro Wrestling show in the summer of 1979 when Anakin Skywalker’s droids R2-D2 and C-3PO stopped by to have themselves a tag-team match.
