BRM Reviews the 1/18/2021 Raw (HORRIBLE! And this time, there might actually be consequences)

RANDY ORTON PROMO- GREAT! To try to sell the burns, they had him in a dark area with makeup on his burnt parts and a Lucha mask hiding the rest. It worked pretty well. Randy cut a LONG promo, but it built very well. The key point here was that he enjoys the pain, and if getting his face burned off c...

Re: Cero Reviews Impact Wrestling Hard To Kill 2021

I’m not saying it was perfect, I don’t particularly like cinematic matches, they don’t have their place in WWE or any company that offers tickets to a show (I’d be furious if I bought a ticket to a show to then watch the big match on a screen). But it wasn’t the worst example out there. How did you...

Re: BRM Reviews NJPW Wrestle Kingdom XV in Tokyo Dome: Day 2

This was another good show from New Japan, but there was definitely a big split between the Wrestle Kingdom-quality stuff and the other stuff, which would have been bad on any random “Road to…” show, never mind the biggest show of the year. I’ve hit the point where I just don’t find New Japan very ...

Re: Tony Khan explains origins of AEW-Impact relationship

I don't buy that it keeps the storyline strong because it doesn't mesh. In AEW, Omega, Callis, & pals are invaders/traitors working for impact. In Impact, Omegs is the arrogant heel pooping on Impact. It makes sense with AEW's story, but it airs on Impact, where the story being presented is tota...

Well I mean...most of her cohorts have had pretty well success, except the way main roster handled Asuka...and even still she's seen lots of gold.

Re: Cero Reviews Impact Wrestling Hard To Kill 2021

AJ vs Taker showed how it could be done without shitting on the show. Everyone keeps saying this, but I don't get it. Druids appearing in a random old barn and fighting The Undertaker for no explained reason isn't sh*ting on the business? Sure, it's not as egregious as some of the other stuff doesn...

OPENING BIT WITH PAUL HEYMAN & ROMAN REIGNS- dumb Heyman tells Roman that this match “needs a stipulation” that will allow Roman to “teach Adam Pearce about fear and respect.” DUDE! Last week Roman intimidated Pearce into doing what he wanted, and that was in a situation where Roman wasn’t allow...

Re: Cero Reviews Impact Wrestling Hard To Kill 2021

So wait, Ethan Page fought himself? I wish people wouldn’t do that. At this point it’s not cinematic, it’s just dumb. But this is company that recently did a murder storyline. So. And not even their first attempted murder. I've said it before and I'll say it again: It doesn't matter who is in charg...

JOE COFFEY vs. ED HARVEY- 4.5/10 Ed Harvey is the former Sha Samuels, who is old and hasn’t either had a great match or cut a great promo in years.

Re: Impact reveals new commentary team, Josh Mathews promoted

I think with the right guy, Striker can be great. Him and Vampiro were pretty good, and I can't imagine D'Lo would be much worse a partner. Hyperboles aside, the one thing that is really bad from Striker is when he breaks kayfabe in order to sound legit. Comments like "These guys don't slap th...
