Re: BRM Reviews the 5/22/2018 205 Live

Even that one Raw appearance I'm pretty sure was just to build hype to Crusierweight tourney. I know they haven't been on Raw since Mania, so it's safe to say they're making it its own brand They were originally announced as being on Raw. As far as I'm concerned it is never safe to assume that this...

Re: WWE Monopoly News: PROGRESS and ICW set to join WWE Network. MLW News

Zack leaving EVOLVE isn't a "you can't work for our friends competitors" issue. I thought it was an issue of the full-time NJPW deal meaning that he is moving back to either England or Japan, and thus EVOLVE really doesn't want to pay to fly him in that often. PROGRESS if he is moving to Japan, PRO...

Re: WWE Monopoly News: PROGRESS and ICW set to join WWE Network. MLW News

Zack was leaving anyway due to NJPW. The rest of this is wild speculation. There is nothing confirming that, he left EVOLVE and that's it, if he was going full time with NJPW, he had to be able to support the US NJPW partners, thus not evolve. Now that's gonna be the case with PROGRESS unfortunatel...

Re: BRM Reviews the 5/22/2018 205 Live

Apparently TJP is in an angle where he feels he is underutilized so he wants to go to Smackdown. Aren’t the Cruiserweights Raw wrestlers?. I think 205 got made its own brand once Maverick got introduced. Could be completely off base about that though. I know they've been on Raw at least once since ...

BRM Reviews the 5/23/2018 NXT

HEAVY MACHINERY vs. TM61- 6.25/10 Coach is in the crowd. I really hope this doesn’t mean he’s coming to NXT. A good tag team match with TM61 once again using illegal leverage via feet on the ropes to pick up a win. BIANCA BELAIR VIDEO PACKAGE- bad. This was them producing a video to tell us that we’...

HIDEO ITAMI VIDEO PACKAGE- A good run-down of his history in WWE and how it has led to his current mental state and tonight’s match with former partner Akira Tozawa. DREW GULAK PROMO- good, but I really hate this “anti-high-flyer” character. There is just something about it that feels both cliché an...

Re: BRM Reviews NJPW Best of the Super Juniors XXV: Day 2 (awesome)

1 The belt ACH has is the AAW Heavyweight Championship 2 I'm shocked Hiromu isn't in worse shape than Ospreay given that he makes Ospreay look sane in my opinion People bringing non-NJPW partner promotion belts to NJPW has been relatively uncommon recently. Props to ACH for doing that. And yeah, Hi...

If being in bed with WWE was all it took for you to stop watching a promotion you'd have dumped PROGRESS a long time ago. yes and no, for the longest time being in bed with WWE hadn't really changed PROGRESS that much other than the music, but now it means that certain talent that I enjoy a lot may...

Nothing more Punkrock than getting big and selling out.

It was. Paige tweeted exactly what Bob said.
