Re: Did You Know: Johnny Gargano...

it's the indies, it's not really surprising to be honest. I mean, two weeks ago Kenny Omega worked in the same card as Glacier, a man with no legs, Aja Kong, and was narrated by Jim Ross. Can I just say on the subject of the guy with no legs in that god awful AEW battle royal... Shawn Spears probab...

Re: Dean Malenko signs with AEW as senior producer/coach

I'm starting to get uncomfortable with all the ex-WWE guys they're bringing in. they're agents, there's really not a lot if any, agents that aren't ex-wwe guys. technically everyone old is an ex-wwe guy I know, and you're right. I just read this after hearing Jim Ross talking about recruiting Jerry...

Yes. I did know this. It was part of all of the peculation that he was going to leave when his contract was up last September.
And that finally clearing him was the only way to keep hold of him.

Oh, this is a shame. Because you missed the treat that is the Iiconics on commentary for a women’s tag match.

Re: 2 Cents: The Viking Experience

Now they’ve called their finishing move the Viking Experience just so Cole can shout it out in his annoying tone.

Viking Raiders is dry. Are they Vikings who raid? Are they guys who raid Vikings? It’s just a bit shit.

Re: Dustin Rhodes posts statement on departure from WWE

A shrewd move by WWE. A Cody vs. Dustin match will suck and drag the AEW card down, and Cody took the bait because he can't help himself. Literally the most underwhelming announcement of a match possible. Cody is on the up another match be Dustin does nothing. Should’ve signed Dustin to be his mana...

Re: All Time: Best "King" gimmick?

Lawyer gets it on longevity, without forcing it and with everyone accepting it both heel and face (as well as something like 137 world championship reigns during his run as The King 😂)

Honourable mention for me goes to King Booker. It drew a lot of heat, gave his wife a job and it got really over.

Re: Update on CassXL & nZo and ROH

The fact that Enzo and Cass were together blew it for me. Cass actively disavowed Enzo after the allegations hit, and while I think Cass has some potential (not with the name 'CassXL' though, fucking Christ) I never want to see Enzo again i always felt that as soon as Cass got fired, they both got ...

Re: Update on CassXL & nZo and ROH

It got no buzz, because everyone realised straight off that it was a work.
Security did nothing which means they were briefed on it... and nobody wants to see them. They're not a draw. Best to pull the plug!

Re: Your 5 star matches

Yeah. I seem to be lower on it than most people. No match is going to get five stars if it's on the same card as Dunne/WALTER. That was far and away the best match all night. I like Dunne well enough but honestly, I'm just not a fan of the way bigger guys wrestle generally. Besides that, I can't he...

That's not a safe thing to do. You might fall into the abyss and never be able to come back. Your mind will be permanently broken. But at least you'll never mistake the kind of belt that holds your pants up for a championship. Which takes me to a Cornette Podcast rant on the belts where he basicall...

Exactly.

Re: Sasha Banks Update

Then maybe they should get some Australians on their show who are good wrestlers and not horrendously annoying characters. As our own Earth Child wonderfully pointed out, they're not even Australian enough to appeal to real Aussies: http://www.thewrestlingrevolution.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=2...

And you could even use it to turn Sheamus and Cesaro (or even just one of them if you split them up in the draft) babyface, which would be the first babyface run for either of them in a damn long time. As it currently stands, this is the only way to save this from a kayfabe POV, anyway, so they mig...
