Re: BRM Reviews AEW Fyter Fest 2020: Week 1

Part of the fun of wrestling is watching wrestlers do the moves and the nonsense/chaos therein , and AEW scratches my itch for nonsense and chaos, just like ECW or TNA from 2006-2009 did. If everyone did it, I understand how it could be annoying, but similarly, you can only watch the babyface/heel ...

Re: Rollins-Mysterio Extreme Rules match to end with an eye pulled out

You know, good ol' PG, family friendly fun for everyone!!!

They sure are pushing this silly "Rollins is an actual messiah", huh? What's next? Will he lose a crucifixion match on PPV and come back three days later on NXT like nothing happened?

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Fyter Fest 2020: Week 1

I'm so happy you used the word "supposedly" here, because I don't see it happening one bit, and if it does, I'm certain it won't have been the original plan. I think Cody is just so tone-deaf that he doesn't realize how much of an asshole he comes off as , and the speculation that a heel ...

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Fyter Fest 2020: Week 1

Oh Red, you and your silly, antiquated concept of babyfaces and heels. Don't you know it's the "Get your shit in" era, no matter how nonsensical and stupid it might be most of the time? Cody's gotta have an entourage around who's interfering in his matches whether he's a face or (supposedl...

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/24/2020 AEW (bad)

Everyone's opinion prior to this was that Britt's wrestling was shit and now we want to clamor for it? Doing her comedy right now, which is not even that far away from what she was doing after turning heel, doesn't need to affect the way she wrestles anyway. I don't understand why comedy is such a ...

Re: Impact terminates relationship with Tessa Blanchard, title vacated

WWE is probably a bit desperate at this point with both Becky and Charlotte out + Rousey unlikely to come back in front of no one (if that was even a possibility in the first place), and yet is in a position of power as well because Tessa has almost no alternative to fall back on (AEW would be hypoc...

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/24/2020 AEW (bad)

They've been overdoing it (I'm pretty sure she didn't miss a single show since she got injured) and is veering towards complete comedy, because Kenny l'artiste doesn't get the difference between a good quip once in a while and constant goofball shit like being pelted with garbage.

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/24/2020 AEW (bad)

Moxley has been a complete afterthought since he won the belt, only facing "flavor of the month" since then. The guy is at best the third most important thing on the show behind the Cody wankfest and whatever Jericho/Bucks/Omega are doing on a particular week. I might even put the Dark Ord...

Re: BRM Reviews the 6/24/2020 AEW (bad)

Ratings took a pretty big hit, so looks like people don't wanna see Cody the pseudo top star, goofy Jericho slumming it down with a lower midcarder, seemingly hotshotting everything with the """best""" team in the world, pummeling this Baker thing into the ground, and t...

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

They've been on life-support for a long time, mostly held up by Quack finding Danny Davis-like ways to save cash on everything from the production side, and Quack finding Quack-like ways to save money on the wrestlers side. I mean yeah, but just because you're a cheap-ass and a carny doesn't mean t...

CHIKARA is next in line for a burial it looks like, which I can't say is too surprising.

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

I think it started because CZW/WSU sold their library to some content provider who repackaged the women's matches as comps with basically porn names while the men's content has generic names like Best of the Extreme/Most Dangerous/whatever. Some women took offense (LuFisto and Kimber Lee were the ma...

Re: Report: Bar Wrestling closed amid Joey Ryan sexual assault allegations

It's really no different than the US, except it's on a smaller scale. You can also count on one hand how many CA/US promotions can draw 1k on a consistant basis.

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

I really can't imagine NXT UK surviving this. At this point, they'll either close the whole thing down and try to keep the few worthwhile names who aren't tainted (Dragunov, WALTER although it's clear he doesn't want to relocate, some of the women like Storm, KLR, Brookside and maybe a couple more) ...

Gallagher is the first one to be dumped out. I imagine this is the end for NXT UK as well with so many guys accused.

Re: A definitive list of everyone who's been accused of sexual assault so far.

Probably should have been clearer : I'm way more likely to believe someone who actually comes out and say "X did [Insert horrible thing] to me months ago" than some random third/46567th party.
