Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

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...

Re: AEW's Saraya not yet cleared to wrestle

So they brought her in and had her scare off all the heels without knowing if she'll ever be able to have a match. Good job, Tony.

NO DISQUALIFICATIONS MATCH: Sting & Darby Allin vs. House of Black (Brody King & Buddy Matthews) (w/Julia Hart)- 2/10 (and that’s being generous) I didn’t like Sting and Darby jumping them from behind. This feud… well… feels like it ended already, and the heat just isn’t there for the babyfa...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

What is your sourcing for this? Everything I've heard said that Cody and Brandi were very divisive. I do remember the articles about "the Rhodes being bad" to be rather broad and vague while when you were talking to the wrestlers directly, pretty much all of them lauded the Rhodes. I thin...

I also really hope they’re going to be announcing an ROH TV show soon, because this Jericho/Garcia/Danielson story is probably the best thing you could put on it to try to bring in AEW viewers.

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

But on the Hobbs exclusion, I’d have Hobbs do something really heinous to Starks like attack him backstage and then have Starks cost Hobbs that match somehow even just a distraction. Starks is visibly smaller, he’d have been wronged and therefore more underdog and fans will enjoy it and accept it. ...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

I'm willing to excuse the title tournament entrants due to the combination of the circumstances around it and the fact that there is a theme with the entrants which makes sense, and everyone involved is the best fit with that theme. Tony did a good job with that. Otherwise, you wind up in a position...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

It is becoming crystal clear why Rhodes left since he was the only serious adult trying to do something constructive, and most likely quickly put on the side by the other Elite guys and Tiny himself, hence why we ended up with the Codyverse that barely had any relations with the rest of the show.

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

Agree with all sentiments. But here’s the thing… The difference in Cody and Punk is clear. Cody is political, and chose to not put up with the idiotic grown up children, so he just picked up his ball and quietly went to the WWE with barely a word spoken. Punk isn’t going to do that, and he doesn’t ...

Ross has the experience managing these situations, he wouldn't be required to talk wrestling to them, but rather finding solutions and finding ways to work with and around guys that have issues. If wrestlers aren't prepared to listen to JR, then the problem isn't with JR, it's with the wrestler. Ad...

Re: All Out Post-Show Discussion Thread

My opinion is that Tony Khan needs Jim Ross. JR is someone who has been head of talent relations in the biggest wrestling company in the world, in the biggest boom period at a time with the biggest egos and he helped made it work. If I was TK, I would be getting my chequebook out and saying to JR, ...
