BRM Reviews WWE WrestleMania XXXVII: Night 1

WWE WrestleMania XXXVII: Night 1 (4/10/2021)- Tampa, FL VINCE GIVES A SPEECH- I’d normally be fine with something nice like this, but from a guy who has constantly ignored the fans over the past decade (and especially the past six years or so), it comes off as completely phony. WE PAUSE FOR A WEATHE...

Re: Cero Reviews NJPW Sakura Genesis 2021

He's actually saying it the other way. He's saying that he doesn't think non-European fans realize just how grating Ospreay's character is to European fans. Well, in that case, I'd also say, who cares? I'm sorry to European fans, but they're not exactly the priority to a Japanese company with a foc...

Re: BRM Reviews the 3/31/2021 Dynamite (a microcosm of AEW)

1. It's an exhibition match, those go to time limit draws, you never go for the kill in an exhibition match. That makes sense. I just don't see what Cody thought would happen out of making this an exhibition and doing it the way he did other than Q.T. feeling humiliated. That type of thinking seems...

They really didn't like the "succeed, just to fail early on so you can succeed again" aspect. They also didn't like him saying he wanted to win both titles and then not wanting to defend both of them. They also didn't like him losing the briefcase but getting to challenge at the Dome anyw...

Re: Cero Reviews NJPW Sakura Genesis 2021

They were also REALLY negative on the title change here, and very unhappy with Ibushi's whole run- both the booking and Ibuhi's promos and performance. what was the argument against the title change? I thought it was spot on with Gedo's booking style. They really didn't like the "succeed, just...

Re: Cero Reviews NJPW Sakura Genesis 2021

Rich Fann and Alan Counihan both had an intensely negative reaction to most of this show (Radican a little less so) in their PWTorch Round Table (mostly having to do with the booking). It very much reminded me of the point I hit with ROH after Global Wars 2016 . It was a pretty interesting listen, i...

Re: Cero Reviews STARDOM Yokohama Dream Cinderella In Spring

By hype I mean Meltzer (or whoever wrote that daily update that day calling it the best women's match in forever or something like that. And I seem to have a lot more faith in Io vs. Gonzalez than you do. oh, don't trust Meltzer when it comes to Joshi, he's watched about 5 matches in the last 2-3 y...

Re: Cero Reviews STARDOM Yokohama Dream Cinderella In Spring

So Bea vs. Hayashishita doesn't live up to the hype? depends on the hype, I don't think Bea is this amazing wrestler or anything, she's just good, but not close to being the best in stardom. Nakano vs Natsupoi was the one I was mostly hyped for. The match is definitely better than your usual televi...

AOIFE VALKYRIE vs. STEVIE TURNER- 3/10 Turner cut an extremely stupid in-set promo that made no sense. Valkyrie won cleanly, but the jobber got WAY too much offense in. Also, if Valkyrie is undefeated, why has she not gotten a title shot yet? She’s been on the show for a good year at this point. A-K...

Re: DARK Elevation 3.29

this is the promo I think you're talking about. I think it's ok, it's not Jay White at WK, but it's not that bad. This is actually closer to the Miro that I think most people want to watch rather than the videogamer https://youtu.be/d2hjXKRuHVY?t=626 I didn't think this was anywhere near that bad. ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 3/24/2021 Dynamite (THIS is the Kenny Omega that AEW needs!)

This was an awesome episode of Dynamite. Omega in particular had his best show… ever, maybe? I get the point you're trying to make here is "Manic Omega is better than Kenny Omega who just stands around in garish suits and lets Don do most of the talking for him", which is a completely val...
