Did You Know: Adam Page...

Was a high school journalism teacher before he went to New Japan and became a full time wrestler?

The 5 'Ws' and journalistic formatting were apparently, for a time, cowboy s*it.

Re: Cero Reviews NJPW World Tag League 2020/BOSJ 27 Day 1

Re: WWE Raw viewership up for Randy Orton-Drew McIntyre title match

And, of course, if they keep finding themselves in situations where they're having to change the world title because they don't want to give away a certain match at Survivor Series, you'd think the solution would be obvious: STOP DOING THE STUPID, POINTLESS CHAMPION VS.

Re: WWE Raw viewership up for Randy Orton-Drew McIntyre title match

Isn't this like, the third year in a row where they've done a TV world title change for Survivor Series, and it's the only world title change on TV all year Yeap, they keep booking on the spot and find themselves with matches they don't want to do at SS. I personally didn't think this was worth cha...

NWK Reviews WWE No Way Out 2004 (EDDIE VS BROCK)

2/14/2004, San Francisco California Intro [/b] As we paid remembrance to Eddie Guerrero last week, it really dawned on me how Eddie and Chris' near simultaneous title wins really sold me as a casual fan on the wonders of wrestling storytelling, that any babyface can overcome the odds and win the big...

Re: BRM Reviews the 11/11/2020 NXT

NXT NORTH AMERICAN TITLE MATCH: Johnny Gargano(c) vs. Leon Ruff- no rating, very interesting statement, and VERY mixed feelings. This was mostly a squash, thought it went longer than you’d expect. Gargano kept getting distracted by Damian Priest in the crowd… and eventually one of these distraction...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Full Gear 2020

I will agree with this, but a wrestler also needs to be careful to not be Ric Flair and ALWAYS get thrown off when you go to the top rope, because after a certain point, you look like an idiot for repeatedly failing to learn this lesson. I agree, and that'll be something to keep an eye out for, but...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Full Gear 2020

The finish, which I guess was great for people that have followed the FTR since their corporation days, the whole No Flips shit, was that at the very end, Wilder, having the match won, decided to go for flips, a Springboard 450 of all things, and he crashed and burned and Matt Jackson took advantag...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/29/2020 NXT UK (ILJA VS. WALTER!)

NXT UK TITLE MATCH: WALTER(c) vs. Ilja Dragunov- a PERFECT 10/10! Are absolutely sure this one was worked? These two jut bea the living sh*t out of each other. This undersells it. There are plenty of wrestling matches in which the guys beat the shit out of each other for real. But there was hatred ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/28/2020 NXT: Halloween Havoc (WHY?!)

I was expecting NXT to fix it. You say "given what Halloween Havoc has been as a wrestling show," but in the show's history, only 91 and 95 really had too much goofiness that was out of step with the general tone of the promotion, and even in 95 that's arguable, as the goofiness was limited to the ...

Re: BRM Reviews WWE Hell in a Cell 2020 (bad)

The second scenario is a good one, but I don't quite know the right way to fit it into the shows. It seems a weird to do for a TV show. Maybe you do it on YouTube and then have the announcers pitch to it on the next week's show because of all of the kayfabe criticism of Roman from these regular-Joe...

Despite a lot of great stuff on it, this was a very frustrating show for me to watch because of the stupid, campy, Halloween bullsh*t.

Re: Matt Riddle gets name adjustment, now going by 'Riddle' in WWE

I can actually emphasize with this. As someone with a very common first name, but a very memorable last name, depending on the person I just have them refer to me by my last name. that's ok, but along with Red's response, you don't need to remove the name, it can still be there, just don't say it i...
