Re: AEW Releases Official Rankings

The bigger issue is that it's not clear which matches are counting for this thing. It took me a while to find out that they counted the 4-way at FF in Page's record for example. Also Spears was 2-2, so you'd think he would be above Moxley since it's a bigger sample than just two matches. The sample ...

Re: NWK posts the results of AEW Dark 11/5

Absolutely incorrect. You're right, that would imply that he's funny, which he isn't. One-note jobber is a more apt description. I get why people sleep on Shawn, but I LOVE his presentation in AEW. I love his entrance, I love the chemistry between him and Tully. He has potential to be a great heel,...

Re: NWK posts the results of AEW Dark 11/5

Basically the only things of interest on this show were Janela and Havoc as a team, and MJF on commentary. 95 percent of the show was Full Gear hype, which, understandable, and I really hope Shawn gets a post Full Gear push, as he's way better than wrestling a comedy jobber. Like being a comedy job...

Re: BRM Reviews wXw World Tag Team Festival 2019: Night 3

1/2. none of those Joshi promotions use gaijins, the only other than Stardom is Sendai Girls, which has also been at the same level since before the UK got dried up, they haven't grown at all. You can't blame Joshi on this. The female talent is still out there, wXw is just not using them, and from ...

Re: BRM Reviews wXw World Tag Team Festival 2019: Night 3

wXw WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH: Amale Winchester(c) vs. LuFisto- 5.75/10 LuFisto did the best she could with Amale. I’m sorry, but Amale is just SOOOOO sub-par when you compare her with the other women in this company that the decision to put the belt on her was baffling and the decision to keep it on her...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/30/2019 Dynamite (one POTYC and a whole bunch of sh*t)

One could say they're making a huge mistake letting him cool down, but he's also simmering in a spot where he could step in to the position very easily. I feel like they've got their fingers on the pulse and know their smarky fanbase would turn on them quickly if the company turned into a circle je...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/30/2019 Dynamite (one POTYC and a whole bunch of sh*t)

This was the worst episode of Dynamite yet, with the majority of it being indyriffic spots-fests, dumb comedy, and self-indulgent, barely-logical Cody bullsh*t. Unfortunately, this is pretty much what I've been saying all along. I also think that the show is incredibly top-heavy so far and I keep r...

I wasn't going to comment because... well, I don't particularly care about ACH's crazy tantrum over a crappy t-shirt and THE WORLD, but his little quip about Lethal there reminded me of that match he was supposed to have against him for the TV title at ASE in 2014 and missed because of nebulous reas...

It's the go-home show for Superfight . We start with a video about Contra attacking Hijo de LA Park last week, then a promo with Samael and Fatu who say that they'll destroy Park at the PPV.

Re: AEW Dynamite and NXT on USA viewership continues its week to week decline

But AEW set out from the beginning to have a more sports-related product, and if that's their goal, then non-wrestling segments ARE the plague! You care, or don't care, about Britt Baker or Riho or Adam Page because you like their matches, want to see them win (or lose), and move closer to a title ...

It's the Havoc show... We start with the whole "Dynasty got out of their title defense with legal bullshit" angle, then here are the Von Erichs who say that Dynasty are afraid and should start acting like champions. They announce that they'll get their match at Superfight in a Texas Tornado match. H...

Re: AEW Dynamite and NXT on USA viewership continues its week to week decline

It's more that a wrestling-heavy wrestling show isn't going to attract much more than the hardcore fans. The in-ring (as in the MOVEZ) really isn't an issue in today's pro wrestling, but storytelling/character building very much are major ones. AEW is acting like non-wrestling segments are the plagu...

Re: Maria Manic's ROH contract expires, receives WWE tryout

Even when I think they can't get any lower, ROH still manages to surprise me. Like, I thought she was injured or recuperating and that was why she wasn't wrestling, but of course not, they just had nothing for her for six months besides endlessly beating up security and a few wrestlers.

Re: Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 79

It's probably just another full week with the Havoc show, then whatever they have left from Dallas and Tijuana, then a one-hour live pre-show on BeIN before the PPV. It's still not particularly interesting and next week's show sounds like a dumpster fire, but at least this cycle will be kinda short.

We start outside "friday" with Salina who bumps into the Dynasty making fun of Mexico. They argued a bit, then SDR told them that if they're so great, why not face the Parks? MJF and Holliday are trying to get out of it, but Hammerstone (who was with them for the first time in a long while) accepts ...

Eh, I don't have that much of an opinion about Thatcher (same with Lawlor really, but that was a fairly entertaining reaction at least). I remember seeing his first round match live at Carat 2015 and thought it was a good match, but was bored to death at the same time. To be fair, it was at the heig...
