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

Bix, I like you, but man, your continued attempts to defend an obvious troll, racist, homophobe, Islamophobe, misogynist prick in Jim Cornette are very sad.

Re: Daniel Bryan/Bryan Danielson Announces Retirement

Those reaction vids, man, if ever there were a scathing indictment of how awful WWE overproduces their promos, there you have it. Each and every person, with the possible exception of Charlotte and Ziggler, sound natural and like they are real humans. Just step back WWE, let your talent fucking talk...

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

The problem with Cornette being on any Observer related show is that Dave thinks of him as a friend and still views him as a valuable resource. Dave's complete silence over Cornette's repeated instances of homophobia, racism, misogyny, and Islamophobia have nailed that point home. Dave doesn't view ...

Re: The 90's NJPW heavyweight scene

The 90s New Japan scene gave us Hashimoto, and he's better than anything All Japan produced in the 90s. For that reason alone it's an era that is far too looked over, though the 90s All Japan scene is worthy of the praise it receives.

Re: NJPW/CMLL FantasticaMania 2016

He's said, in an interview the day after the Lee match, that he's going back to Mexico. Won't be working in Japan anytime soon by all accounts.

Re: wXw - Germany's biggest promotion

Does the five slot mean those guys are all in some multiman match to decide who gets the spot? They're in a mini tournament over February and early March to get a spot http://i.imgur.com/iRF5Zx6.png Ah okay, it just seems every time I watch WXW they're putting on some huge multiman match that is in...

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

I brought this up on twitter to no response (my game in wrestling twitter is weak). But should AJPW look at an alternate Tokyo venue for their lesser shows? Say Shinjuku Face. Face takes roughly 700 people, so the typical number of people AJPW draws in Tokyo wouldn't look too bad in there. And they...

Re: Evolve 2015

I don't really think it's anything like that. All indicators are that the WWN/WWE deal is a two way street and this is WWE's side of the deal at this point. Eventually I'm pretty sure we'll see NXT talent actually wrestling on EVOLVE shows, but for now it's just appearances which is WWE honoring the...

I'd second the Yearbooks, they are a treasure trove of content and really help frame the years in question.

Re: Most Overrated

While I STILL don't get the hype about Finn Balor he did have a great 2015 so I'm gonna go with Roman. I've heard far too much praise for him this year as a worker. He's improved by leaps and bounds than he was at the start of the year but I wouldn't even call him a top 10 worker in that company an...
