BRM Reviews the 5/16 2018 NXT

OPENING SEGMENT- Tommaso Ciampa comes out to brag about injuring Johnny Gargano and say he has ended his career. Candice LeRae came out and recited the grand speech that was written for her. It wasn’t, like, terrible or anything, but it was pretty clear that this was not Candice speaking off the top...

PROGRESS Chapter 68: Super Strong Style 16 2018, Day 3 (5/7/2018)- Haringey, UK TYLER BATE ANNOUNCES HE IS INJURED AND MUST PULL OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT- They found the most awkward way possible to announce this. The way Bate was talking (he has a “slight twinge” in his shoulder) gave me the feeling t...

Re: Honor United and WOTW UK Hype

More mostly meh and likely inconsequential matches, just like last week's join ROH/NJPW shows were Doing these so close together was really stupid. Martinez vs. Tanahashi vs. Silas vs. Sanada, Briscoes vs. EVIL & Sanada, Kenny King vs. Martinez, and Briscoes vs. Page & Cody have potential, with Cody...

Re: WON: British promotions with streaming services (excluding ICW & Progress) no longer allowed to use talent with WWE

I also fear that NJPW will pull Sabre/Ospreay/Scurll from PROGRESS and push them towards RevPro only Scurll already gave a goodbye speech back at Chapter 55, so he's not really a loss, and Ospreay hasn't been around too much, either. Zack has started working more frequently for PROGRESS, but with h...

Re: BRM Reviews the 5/15/2018 Smackdown

I think the reason Paige is being mean to Mandy and Sonya is because they both assumed they’d get special treatment with her being in a position of authority, and when Paige told them that wasn’t going to be the case they started copping an attitude like spoiled children. She even said to them that...

Re: Impact Wrestling viewership down for third straight week

I don't think it was only two weeks, though. You said yourself that ratings have been up for the past six months, which would roughly go back to when the announcement that Callis & D'Amore were taking over was made. This was their first PPV. It's a reasonable amount of time to try a product out and...

Re: Backlash Was A Bad Show, But It Exposed A Much Deeper Issue For WWE

I'm all for one PPV a month. I went to Money in the Bank last year, and had paid for my tickets in advance of the Superstar Shakeup. The main reason why I wanted to go was to see Nakamura wrestle. Now, I pose to you, what if for some reason, they'd traded Nakamura to Raw? I would have essentially p...

Re: Impact Wrestling viewership down for third straight week

I agree with you that people will stick around out of habit even if they don't like the show, but I don't understand why you think there is a difference between "giving up" on the show and allowing it to slip out of being part of their routine. If the show is good enough, you will alter your routin...

OPENING SEGMENT- decent Renee Young is in the ring for an interview with Daniel Bryan. Renee brought Bryan out and he got a huge pop. The fans would rather just chant for Bryan than let Renee speak. She powered through them, which made it hard to hear her, but I totally understand why she didn’t sto...

Re: Impact Wrestling viewership down for third straight week

it's all in the wording of your first post, I don't think people are 'giving up', if numbers are going down, and let's assume that there's really no outside factor, it's not because Impact was bad that they 'gave up' or anything, it's people just going back to their usual life before they started w...

RONDA-NIA ANGLE- This happened at the NBC Universal up-fronts. Ronda was hanging out with Charlotte (most certainly not a coincidence) and WOOOOing when Nia just walked up to her and said “you can woooooo but can you do this” and held up her title belt. Renee Young tells us that apparently there was...

Re: Impact Wrestling viewership down for third straight week

Follow up: Even with a World title match (Pentagon Jr. vs. Eli Drake) on the show and there being no NBA playoffs on Thursday night, Impact ratings dropped very slightly this week. The show averaged 295,000 viewers, down from 299,000. Ratings have been on a bit of a downward trend since the hit tha...
