Re: Seth Rollins Talks The New Version Of His Character

The problem with Rollins at the minute is that he feels stale. He isn't really going through any metamorphosis, his whole "Monday Night Messiah" character feels much like everything else he's done this last couple of years. He's just "Seth Rollins" at this point. He's going to w...

Re: Sammy Guevara & Andrade El Idolo Backstage Fight at AEW Dynamite

How does Sammy keep getting away with bits? Get involved in an altercation, appear in the main event. Joke. Not saying Andrade doesn't carry some blame here, because he does. But this is repeat situations that Sammy seems to find himself in. This. Sammy is the one who made it physical first. It wil...

I'm going to disagree. He's a great wrestler, but not much else, and AEW already has more than enough of that.

MJF vs. WHEELER YUTA- 8/10 The announcers (in this case, Taz, William Regal, Excalibur, and Tony Schiavone) are talking about what a major line MJF crossed by putting his hands on Tony Schiavone… and we still haven’t heard even a peep about MJF being punished for doing this horrible, terrible thing....

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

On this week's between the sheets, Kris Zellner made an interesting comparison between Vince's outlook in his final years and Giant Baba's ("my way is the best," not changing with the times, especially in regards to pushing smaller wrestlers, unwillingness to acknowledge other promotions).

Re: BRM Reviews the 9/30/2022 Rampage (bad)

What have the Butcher and The Blade ever done to earn a tag team title shot? They haven't been relevant in a very long time. This is what irks me. Why is AEW booking teams like this for tag team title matches and yet FTR get nothing. You cannot avoid that obvious forever. It's madness. Exactly. The...

Re: BRM Reviews the 9/21/2022 Dynamite (Grand Slam 2022)

Garcia as a viewpoint character is a good idea, but if you want to tel the story in a way that will bring in new people, the baseline of what ROH is supposed to be needs to best established before you introduce the existential threat. I feel the trick is to present it in a way that the old ROH fans...

I don't buy that the Elite were the only ones who didn't like him, simply because I could see how grandiose and self-serving the sh*t he was doing on-screen was, so I can only imagine that people who had some inkling of whatever machnications he pulled to get them, or who knew what he wanted to do ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 9/21/2022 Dynamite (Grand Slam 2022)

I think they need to establish what ROH is supposed to be before they do that sort of thing, though. You have to show that ROH isn't just any other promotion, but a place where interference and DQs are an abomination that will get someone shunned in the locker room and maybe never booked again. You...
