Re: 2 Cents: The Meltzer Driver

Something I've never understood. Why does the Buck doing the Tombstone just.... tombstone the guy if the Buck doing the 450 is held up? And it's never like the Buck doing the 450 ever tumbles off the rope when the move is blocked. They always weeble wobble. Don't wait to do your move! Just tombston...

Re: XIV Reviews AEW Revolution 2021

Adam Page vs Matt Hardy gets match of the night for me. I see you're a man of culture as well. Proof that working the body part will never go out of style. Absolutely, they did the best job of using a match and told a story within it, Matt Hardy, the guy the announcers built up has been wrestling a...

XIV Reviews AEW Revolution 2021

AEW World Tag Team Championship MJF & Chris Jericho w/ Wardlow vs Young Bucks (C) Pre Match Notes: The Young Bucks are so mad at MJF & Jericho that they have to pose while toilet paper explodes around them. Justin Roberts is a horrible ring announcer. Straight away the wrestling match is in...

Re: WWE NXT planning to introduce new championship

I think Tegan Nox had found a tag partner before her latest injury, plus you have Team KC and the Robert Stone Brand to make up the undercard. If they put effort into it and create teams, they can make it work. But they’re still doing it backwards. Have some great women’s tag teams first, then brin...

Re: Rules for exploding barbed wire deathmatch at AEW Revolution set

Oh look, another world title match with stupid bullshit rules that don’t fit the feud. You know what would have made sense in this feud? A cage to keep Good Brothers and Callis out seeing as we all know how Moxley lost the title. ] And the cage also ostensibly keeps weapons out, so Moxley would hav...

Re: WWE NXT planning to introduce new championship

Agreed. I think this is more of a "Hunter trying to show up Vince" kind of thing like we saw with the Cruiserweight Title, or with people who have come back down to NXT like Ember Moon and Breezango. Probably! Becase is a at this point Kai/Gonzalez, Moon/Blackheart and LaRae/Hartwell are ...

Re: WWE NXT planning to introduce new championship

This is a mistake, just because you could do something, doesn’t mean you should do something. There is no need and not enough established women’s teams in NXT to warrant this. Build the division, bring in the titles. Agreed. I think this is more of a "Hunter trying to show up Vince" kind ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 3/3/2021 Dynamite: The Crossroads

Shaq / Jade vs Cody / Velvet, was not as bad as I thought, they didn't do anything with Shaq that he couldn't obviously do and the match was okay, it shouldn't have been first but clearly building to something in the future with Shaq not being in the ambulance. I thought Jade Cargill was okay, but d...

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

I hear you, there’s probably a thing about it behind the scenes and in the advertising, but it’s just not something discussed here, so it’s not something I’ve really ever understood, but the overall point is, who cares about the “key demo” if it’s for advertising revenue only? Like, business wise, ...

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

[ “Key Demos” are such an Americanism that I’ll never fully understand it. It may be a case for America only, I wouldn't be surprise, but it's 100% a thing and it's how they sell advertising, both in terms of product selection, and money invested in such spots. I hear you, there’s probably a thing ...

Maybe he should give Joey Ryan a call. See if they can pitch up a charity show.

Re: Charitable wrestling show canceled due to Joey Ryan involvement

I mean... looking at it from a purely PR point of view, doing an event for a women's charity is the logical route to take (and yes, the thing you say in your last sentence is certainly a factor in that). it's a good step to take, but is should most definitely be preceded by an apology which he neve...

Booker of the year this year? Probably for me? Hunter Johnston / Delirious. I don’t think ROH TV is the best most watchable show out there BUT, find me reasons why he’s not Booker of the year. Most stories have made sense, he hasn’t booked any murder mysteries, he hasn’t booked a guy fighting himse...

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

I think in some of the earlier days sure, it was competition. But it's not like AEW are going after Raw or Smackdown, they're after the C show. I wouldn't count that as a huge loss. But in this circumstance, they have the "get out" of not admitting any defeats or anything and it was just ...

Re: NXT close on finalizing move to Tuesday starting after WrestleMania

This is the real problem, WWE won't really care too much about "losing" because there is no losing. They've made $2billion in TV and streaming deals over the last couple of years. They're lightyears ahead of AEW, but this will be about protecting the amount of eyes on their product live o...

Re: Charitable wrestling show canceled due to Joey Ryan involvement

the nerve on this fucker to try and hide his return behind a women's charity event. From what I heard, there was a proxy 'booker' calling people saying "joey and sonny will be there" or something of the like, thinking it was Janela for sure, and that's how they got a bunch of people that ...
