Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Jay White is only 24. My ceiling on him is still as high as ever. He'll be a major player by the time he is in his late twenties.

Re: VOW Flagship: Jinder Mahal, Headbutts, EVOLVE, Impact Wrestling

Whether it's football, basketball, hockey, boxing, mixed martial arts, or pro wrestling, everyone knows the score. Compete for long enough and you're going to end up in a bad way physically and/or mentally. Legacy doesn't mean shit if you can barely walk at 40 or start showing signs of early onset d...

Re: Official WWE Thread

I'll never understand the people labeling him a hypocrite or a sellout. Ranallo was smart to take the money and move on with his life. One man isn't taking down Vince McMahon, Kevin Dunn, or Paul Levesque.

Don't undersell yourself here Joe, going two hours by yourself on short notice will never not be impressive.

Re: VOW Flagship: Mike Sempervive talks Sakura Genesis

Always nice getting Mike in a more longform format, that's where he really excels.
Really enjoyed this one. Thanks Joe.

Re: Official WWE Thread

Hopefully they can just keep Balor on ice for the weekend. He can't afford stumble out of the gate again.

Hyped for Smackdown Live here in June. Absolutely loaded roster now.

Not being within walking distance the French Quarter 100% guarantees that i'm not seeing your show.

Re: Official WWE Thread

I soured on Simmons as a personality a couple years ago, but the Andre doc should be pretty solid.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

At this point, the "Gedo only cares about Okada" argument is really just the "I don't like Okada" argument. Anyone looking at NJPW objectively knows how untrue it is. I don't always agree with the booking, but it's impossible to knock Okada as a wrestler. The man is very good to great at everything...

Re: Official WWE Thread

There's no way of saying this without it seeming petty, but here goes. I don't like the new Chamber. I get why they changed it but it's a little too neat now. I'm sure it still hurts real bad bumping on it, but sitting there thinking "are those actually gym mats?" does take a bit of the aura away. ...

Re: Official WWE Thread

I'm not a fan of the Elimination Chamber gimmick one bit, so i'll skip giving my thoughts on that beyond saying everyone worked hard. Orton and Harper had a solid match. Women's stuff was there. Tag match was crap, but the tag division beyond AA is crap so what are you going to do. Not a bad show, b...

Re: WWE WrestleMania 33 - April 2, 2017

If Dave's lineup holds, Lesnar v. Goldberg for the Universal Championship is the only match I have any interest in. Still can't believe they dropped the ball on Cena v. Taker.

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Audio quality on the shows is very good, but when every other major league wrestling/MMA podcast is good enough, that becomes a moot point to hang your hat on. Complaining about the content outside of WOR and WON is a very beaten and dead horse. You either pay for the sub and stomach floating other ...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

I'm the furthest thing from a Bryan Alvarez defender, but having HHH on the show to plug a DVD and answer one or two questions is a lose/lose scenario. Zero chance of him saying anything interesting no matter what is asked.
