Re: The Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship: A Rant

Credited champions of this title include: Chopsticks, a camera crane, a can of beer, the belt itself and some wrestlers underwear. Notable title changes include an entire audience "tapping out" by clapping, being traded for toilet paper, being drunk and in a dream. I don't get it. I don't want to ge...

Re: The Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship: A Rant

I can never buy in to an inanimate object being a champion! I get your point that it requires a "buy-in" to the universe like CHIKARA etc. but it's difficult to then take any competitors seriously once they move from DDT to any other promotion where a level of seriousness is expected. i'm sad you'l...

Re: The Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship: A Rant

DDT is an acquired taste. I enjoy some of their stuff (though I was a lot more into stuff like having a Royal Rumble on train where the gimmick was the a new competitor would get on at each station, or having a match at a campground). Personally, I thought the stuff was funny when it was actually c...

"Who would actually pay to watch this shit?"

people who like this type of comedy wrestling. And judging by their success a whole lot of people.

If it aint for you, that's ok, keep walking and let those that like it enjoy it.

The Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship: A Rant

You’ve all heard of DDT Wrestling right? That god awful company that has had like invisible men and blow up dolls in matches and helped spawn the likes of Joey Ryan etc… But have you heard of DDT’s Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship? According to Wikipedia... The Ironman Heavymetalweight Champion...

Re: BRM Reviews the 4/8/2020 Dyamite (some great video packages, but mostly sh*t)

Jake got the memo and his promo was a lot more about Lance Archer. To steal a quote from Bad Boys... "NOW THAT'S HOW YOU CUT A MANAGER PROMO, FROM NOW ON THAT'S HOW YOU CUT PROMOS". They're doing better than WWE at the empty shows. Just having a smattering of people making noise makes all the differ...

Damn. Post Wrestlemania chopping block is HARSH this year.

Gallows and Anderson will be just fine, Japan or AEW.

Rowan can go and join the Dark Order in AEW

EC3 would be a good investment for AEW too.

Re: BRM Reviews the 4/2/2020 NXT UK (best battle royale ever?)

I don't see him getting the belt, either. But there isn't anyone else I see getting it at the moment, either, so in that case, I think they're right to go with the guy who can give us the fresh match-up with a guaranteed high level of quality while really building someone else up on the undercard (...

Re: BRM Reviews the 4/1/2020 Dynamite (bad)

I have a general issue with Jake Roberts' promos. He's a great promo, one of the best historically. But he hasn't quite learned how to be a manager yet. He is still saying "I'm" going to do this and "I" did that. He needs to think a little more Heymanesque and speak about what Lance Archer is going...

May I ask why? And whether you've seen any of their matches in wXw? Yes and Yes. My Problem is that I don't feel he's the guy who should be facing WALTER right now. It's tricky, because he's taken the big guys in recent months Dunne / Bate / J Coffey... I guess it's a personal thing. I just don't s...

there is no way that AEW or NWA or even ROH would go for him, but Cornette needs to be their mouthpiece

I'd like them to do a little work with the NWA. I think it would just be amazing to have them there. But the logical choice is AEW or a period in Japan.

Re: BRM Reivews WWE WrestleMania XXXVI: Night 2 (f*ck this company)

There are occasional matches where no crowd works (Superbowl half time, Piper vs Goldust etc) but doing entire shows for me is not okay. It is a great time to try new things, but without a crowd reaction, it is tough to know if those new things are getting over or not. I think I fall more in the "I...
