Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

Ian Riccaboni (responding to yours truly over at ROHWorld), shedding some light on his own process of preparation for commentary and commentary during the show. To peel back the onion on this, these are always ad libbed. On this one, I made the call to stay with it. In our last taping, we have a mom...

Re: BRM Reviews the 1/10/2019 ROH

not trying to excuse Delirious at all. I think these tapings were the ones between Final Battle and WK13, so at this point Daddy NJPW hasn't told Delirious he can't play with AEW, so he may have tried to leave that SCU door open. I don't think that call was something NJPW dictated to ROH. I think i...

Re: BRM Reviews the 1/15/2019 Smackdown (REY VS. ALMAS...and a whole bunch of stupid sh*t)

So, having not watched NXT because I’m terrible, what am I supposed to think about Nikki Cross and Heavy Machinery? Because so far Cross doesn’t look to me like she’s capable of much in the ring and if they can’t handle her character, she’s gonna go the Bray Wyatt route in a blink, and I don’t even...

Re: BRM Reviews the 1/10/2019 ROH

booking, if it does get better, should take a bit more time, you still have the AEW people all over these set of tapings. I think we need to wait until Anniversary show months to properly asses if there was any good change. There was zero reason for the Briscoes to not win clean here. What were the...

Re: When injuries work out for the best...

One for debate: Shawn Michaels taking off because of his back. He took off when he may have likely been overshadowed by Austin and Rock running wild over WWE, he would had likely become overexposed and overdone if he kept wrestling all that time and then the time after his return. I'm not sure hw o...

In other release-requesting related news/rumors, Ivelisse says she is being "held hostage" by LU, who had promised anyone who stuck around for season four that they could have their release at the end if they wanted it but now won't give her the promised release. Joey Ryan has backed her story up. ...

Re: When injuries work out for the best...

I’m going to add in post quad tear Triple H in 2002. He was well on the way by that point anyway, but time away made all the difference and he went to the next level for a long while after that. Controversially maybe, I’d argue about the Undertaker when he came back from injury as the American Bad ...

ZACK SABRE JR. vs. TRACY WILLIAMS- 7/10 One little thing that I usually find cliché that I actually liked the way it was executed here was Ian Riccaboni begging for them to hold off on going to a commercial break to the action in progress. For whatever reason I felt that the combination of exactly w...

Re: When injuries work out for the best...

I'm going to push back on your Edge example. You're forgetting that Edge was a major player on Smackdown in 2002 (he was one of the Smackdown Six) and when he got injured, he was scheduled to main event a PPV teaming with Brock & Benoit against Team Angle. The injury merely delayed his push. The thi...

Re: WOR: Tons of News and Notes on AEW, NJPW, WWE, and More

Regarding the debuts, Vince is of the mentality right now he just wants people to see their faces on television. So the writers have to write stuff where they are in the background. They haven’t decided how to use them or on what show, but he wants people seeing them and feels what matters is when ...
