Re: BRM Reviews the 2/26/2021 Smackdown

My main issue with how the built the tag match vs title match thing is I was waiting for Edge to make the save at the end, which he didn’t. Now, if they’re using that as a subtle build to Bryan v Edge in the future, I’m down with that. I think we all want to see that happen. But if it’s not, then Ed...

Re: 2021 Wrestling Observer Awards

There is no way I believe that you're into the whole Dave is in AEW's pocket conspiracy theory. I'm not one of those who thinks he's on AEW payroll, I don't think that's the case at all but the "hard time" he gives AEW is very different to the "hard time" he's given WWE, WCW, EC...

Re: 2021 Wrestling Observer Awards

I don't think that's a fair definition of charisma. If you take base definition, “compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others” then yes. Maybe so. Let me rephrase. It's a good definition of charisma, but if you're using ratings numbers to judge it, then it also doesn't ap...

Re: Kelly Klein files discrimination lawsuit against ROH, Sinclair

Like, if she’s got proof that she made the complaint to ROH and they never investigated, that’s not ideal. Equal pay just isn’t a discussion for now. Will ROH throw her some money to keep her quiet, she isn’t asking for Joey Ryan sums of money, so she could be easily paid to be silenced on the matte...

Re: 2021 Wrestling Observer Awards

They have proved that they have their crowd of AEW hardcores, and that's about it. This is my point earlier about Orange Cassidy and the Charisma comment. AEW has their audience. The same people watching every week. Orange Cassidy isn’t getting you new fans, he’s not a ratings mover with his “chari...

Re: 2021 Wrestling Observer Awards

There are some things up there that absolutely deserve to be in there. There are things that do not. Tony Khan and Orange Cassidy are two of those things. I don't think Moxley is the best worker or wrestler by any stretch BUT he has had a massive impact in the last 12 months, so there's an argument...

The whole thing is levied to be AEW heavy because he's everyone's friend at AEW. It's a complete joke. Best Gimmick Orange Cassidy?...

Re: BRM Reviews WWE Elimination Chamber 2021 (WHY?!)

I don't disagree, but I think that Priest's true top potential lies in being a cocky heel rockstar douchebag, and I just don't see WWE being willing to take the necessary steps to make that work (having women throw themselves at him, etc.) With the other guys you've mentioned, it's just a matter of...

Re: BRM Reviews WWE Elimination Chamber 2021 (WHY?!)

Exactly. You could easily have Damian Priest and Drew team with BB in the corner in a Raw main event between now and mania to keep things ticking. this just made me want Drew vs Priest to main event Summerslam. WWE has their hands on true potential top guys with Drew, Lash Lee and Priest. $5 they f...

I just don’t know why they had to go through this mess to get to where they want. They should have just had Bad Bunny ruin the cash-in or Miz lose the cash-in somehow (like, Lasey comes back and destroys him too), next night on Raw, Bad Bunny makes fun of Miz for losing his briefcase.

Re: BRM Reviews WWE Elimination Chamber 2021 (WHY?!)

I worry. Vince loves to swerve fans and cause confusion. He’s admitted as much. Everybody expects Lashley to beat The Miz... I just don’t see it being that simple. at this point, they may as well let Miz keep the title til WM and have Drew pin him to 'protect' Lashley. If they were still forced to ...
