Being the Elite thread... (Spoiler Warning)


#202

I don’t know how much ha ha you could expect with the very busy week they had, from them having to go to Target to make sure there was enough bottles of water. I saw it more as riding along for an important experience, and if you want to read too much into something “More like All in Poo” would make it sound like this was a 1 off


#203

10 pounds of gold was excellent if you’re looking for more serious


#204

Great episode. The Joey Ryan rehab segment was hilarious. Everything that guy does, is money.


#205

Kota Ibushi hugging Pharoh in 10lbs of Gold was priceless


#206

I have a confession:
I just Matt Jackson’d my signature while picking up chicken fingers at the pizza place next door.
The guy who knows me there couldn’t keep a straight face


#207

and what does that mean? says the person late to the party


#208

Something like this.


#209

Finally a new episode and it was a great one. Glad to see Arthur & Trevor back, after I thought they were written out at All In. They’re always a highlight for me. I liked the note from HHH to Hangman with the boots and the stuff with the clock/countdown. A lot of stuff about their contracts. It should be an interesting few months.


#210

I like how Arthur and Trevor showed up with SCU as many feel it’s them who play them.


#211

I think this episode made it obvious that SCU is Arthur & Trevor. There was some audio editing done whenever the 2 spoke.


#212

In less than 48 hours the most recent episode has about 127k views. Question:
Do we think that the majority of the audience for BTE is agnostic as to which company the group wrestles for?

I ask because I can’t help be feel I’m rooting 100% for these guys to stay out of WWE. This is for various reasons and not because I hate WWE. I’m curious where others fall, and whether these guys are taking into account (I’m sure they are) where their current support wants to see them. If they went to ‘E, would half the viewership groan? More than half? (Obviously an impossible question, just curious others sentiment on it).

It is obvious they will play up the whole decision and contract situation in this season of BTE (I’m dubbing this season 4 - which the others being everything up to Cole leaving, ep 100, All In). It’ll be fascinating to me to see whether the pay off is something that turns fans off. I don’t think they’ve run into this dilemma before.


#213

Kota staring at Arthur at the open is sooo good. I love how Kota is part of this show and pretty much looks like he hasn’t a clue what’s going on


#214

The last few episodes have been fine/below average. I liked episode 123,Cody telling the scary story of the independent contractor, and Jericho dressed as a Buck to recreate the thrill seekers also funny. It went a little long but you have to appreciate these guys still working while on a cruise.


#215

Mostly impressed with the effects they used. But Hardy’s Halloween special won this contest. They should have skipped a Halloween effort since the Hardy crew knocked it out of the park


#216

Holy shit!! Today’s BTE episode was hilarious!! The Shark Boy cameo was awesome. And all the stuff with Cody had me rolling!!:joy::joy:


#217

This was one of the better episodes in a while. Shark Boy cameo was nice and the Cody stuff was great. I always love Arthur & Trevor. I’m getting a little bored of the SCU skits though.


#218

Yeah. I feel you on the SCU skits. And TBH, I had to take a break after “All-In”. I was just on Squared-Circle and someone pointed out the “Jumping the Shark” reference and the similarities between “Black Mirror” and the scene between Hangman and Flip Gordon. I seriously appreciate the little subtleties and innuendos.


#219

Jumping the shark was great
Cody doing the Smackdown “Did You Knows” was hilarious


#220

Super messed up, but I take it we won’t be seeing James Ellsworth on BTE for awhile.


#221

He made one brief, meaningless, pre-intro appearance on a single episode because he happened to be performing at the same show. We wouldn’t be seeing him again for a while anyway, if ever, and as far as i’m aware we’d never seen him before this appearance either.
