Re: BRM Reviews the 4/7/2021 Dynamite (bad, with a terrible ending)

ADAM PAGE vs. MAX CASTER (w/Anthony Bowens)- I mean, just look at something like the Addiction being on some hot streak (on the B and C shows) and planning to break up if/when they lose a match. I think they've mentioned it once on Dynamite and done fuck all since then. Hell, no one seems to care t...

BRM Reviews the 4/12/2021 Raw (getting better)

EARLIER TODAY, LASHLEY ARRIVES AT THE ARENA- He is greeted by clapping, and a babyface Gran Metalik shows him respect. Am I in some sort of alternate universe? Matt Riddle shows up to bother him with his very ugly outfit. You’re not being patriotic if the way you wear our national symbols looks ridi...

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...
