Re: Cero Reviews NJPW 49th Anniversary Show

I did not expect Naito to lose to O-Khan. They really do seem to be trying to push O-Khan. Naito also just lost his title rematch, there's no point in having him go long. Just eliminate him early, let him rest for the big Yokohama/Tokyo Dome shows coming, and meanwhile push O-Khan with a big win. I...

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 bans slapping the leg/thigh when throwing kicks

Hopefully this is them doing what Lance Storm wants and banning it so that it can be brought back for selected big spots to make for more convincing nearfalls (because those nearfalls with have a better sound on the kick). It's one of those things that some people just see through, but really bugs o...

Re: WWE NXT planning to introduce new championship

Probably! Becase is a at this point Kai/Gonzalez, Moon/Blackheart and LaRae/Hartwell are your only options. They’re not exactly Hardyz, Dudleyz and E&C, it won’t keep the interest. I think Tegan Nox had found a tag partner before her latest injury, plus you have Team KC and the Robert Stone Bra...

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: Rules for exploding barbed wire deathmatch at AEW Revolution set

I don't understand why I as a fan am supposed to want to see matches where the main gimmick is designed to kill or maim someone. you answered your own question. Violence! But there is a difference between light tubes (blood! See who is tougher!) and "if you step on the wrong part of the ring, ...

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

I listened to Dave daily from 2014 to 2020 and never remember hearing the term "the demo" or any concern about how WWE was doing in it until AEW came along and did better than NXT in it. (1) why would it matter if there isn't competition? (2) didn't you say that USA wasn't looking at demo...
