Re: AEW viewership down 12 percent this week, NXT narrows ratings gap

AEW uses the same 20 guys to fill their shows each week. Depth will always win. The thing is that they do have depth, they just choose to use it on their Youtube B-show instead of mixing it up for Dynamite so it doesn't become stale, which is what has been happening lately. The show this week will ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/12/2020 Dynamite

If Kong shooting GLOW was the reason they dropped the angle, then that's all on them because how the f*ck could they have possibly not know that this would be an issue. For once, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and say that the storyline being ass and not over in the slightest is why they p...

MJF vs. JUNGLE BOY- 6.75/10 Brandi is on commentary and is a total babyface now. Her leaving/being kicked out of the Nightmare Collective has still not been mentioned to those of us who only watch Dynamite (which is exactly what Cody told us was the only thing we needed to watch to keep up with the...

Re: Taynara Conti leaves NXT following disagreement

The exclusivity is just so silly though. I can understand saying "hey, here's a list of promotions you CAN'T work for", but I think moral would be so much better if they got to work even just one date a month somewhere else if they're not being used. Some wrestlers want to actually wrestle... I don...

Re: Taynara Conti leaves NXT following disagreement

Wasn't she teased to be in UE when they formed, and it went nowhere? Again, the roster is so ridiculously overbloated that they just don't have time to feature everyone on a regular basis, which is crazy considering they tape at least almost TEN HOURS of content every week. Hell, there's barely enou...

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/5/2020 Dynamite (meh)

Alright, I looked it up and there were the three matches before Dynamite, then you have : 1) Fenix vs. Nick Jackson on November 29th 2) LB vs. Omega and Page on December 18th 3) Elite vs. LB and PAC on January 1st 3.2) Cody and Dustin vs. LB on January 8th (I guess this one is debatable) 4) This wee...

ADAM PAGE & THE ELITE (Kenny Omega & the Young Bucks) vs. LUCHA BROS. & THE BUTCHER & THE BLADE (w/the Bunny)- 7/10 Much action happened. The important thing you need to know is that Page could have tagged out but didn’t, resulting in him getting pinned by Pentagon Jr. Is it just me, or do we have ...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

Did they mostly "revolve around the babyfaces' story?" Yes. But to jot see the stories in their matches is utterly baffling to me. They ALWAYS worked a limb. I actually think the complete opposite of that. Outside of that random jobber match, the only big match I can recall where they work a body p...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

I don't understand how any one can watch their NXT work and not see their brilliance. They're a solid, consistent midcard tag team. I get what they're going for, but I never bought it because they aren't pulling it off. The Revival always came up to me as a barely improved version of Blake and Murp...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

#3 seems a bit premature, but that could definitely bite them in the ass soon enough. By signing random low level wrestlers to those "500k a year for 5 years™" deals, WWE is basically saying that this is the base pay on the main roster now. I didn't want to comment on the Revival thread because I wa...

Re: Butterfly Effects In Wrestling

Alright, let's try. Itami/KENTA getting injured in 2015 lead to NXT signing more and more indy names and to what they (and everything else) are now. *incoming long, rambling mess* So, KENTA was clearly meant to win the 3-way at Unstoppable and beat Owens at Beast in the East in Japan. He most likely...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

Overall, the PC suffers from the same issues as WWE : it's overbloated, they can't seem to drop the dead weight because "but what if", and the recruiting process is all over the place. Let's take Ruas for example : the guy seems to be doing some good work in Evolve, but he's also 38 and in developme...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

I have and will forever say that NXT took off because it was the only original wrestling show on the network. The indy stars helped, it doesn't hurt that it's been a GOOD show fairly consistently, but NXT and 205 were the only original in-ring shows on The Network. It was my biggest gripe about The...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

i've been saying it for years, NXT exists for the sole reason that they buy 'hottest free agents' . They wouldn't even survive with lesser known names of the indies. The thing is, they got noticed in the first place when they had a lot less indy stars. The issue really is that NXT didn't find the b...

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

It's almost like they never gave a shit about this division or something.

Like really, they're not going to bring back Klein even to be squashed in five seconds by Manic, just phase the damn thing out at this point.

Re: Let's have fun with this. Complete this sentence. "I may be the only person in the world who thinks this but..."

Of all the people in that roster, Omega and The Bucks are the three guys that I think are bulletproof , that they can spend sometime building up people to their level, and then make a comeback to the top. They really aren't, and it's becoming obvious as time goes by. A year ago, very few people wou...
