Re: WWE (Discussion)

That Hell in a Cell ending is one of the dumbest endings in recent wrestling history. These guys were hitting each other with all kinds of stuff, then the referee has to get involved and give Seth this moral dilemma and call for the bell. It made absolutely zero sense from how the match was wrestled...

Re: WWE (Discussion)

The character would be far more interesting if he had this Funhouse persona and switched between that and The Fiend. There would be an actual character with something interesting behind him. I can see this guy being completely boring by Mania when he presumably gets destroyed by Demon Balor. Um, th...

Re: WWE (Discussion)

So what are people making of The Fiend at this point? Everything around him is so well-produced but the character is starting to fall flat for me. The Funhouse Bray segments have been fun, but we really don't ever see that Bray in arena. The Fiend is just his default for basically zero reason or exp...

Re: WWE NXT 2019 (USA Network debut on 9/18)

I don't think this is like ECW financially, but you could make the argument creatively. I do think the network getting involved + Vince are going to really ruin some of the very things that made NXT a unique brand within WWE. A one hour show that involves a lot of angles + squash matches is not goin...

Re: WWE NXT 2019 (USA Network debut on 9/18)

Think this is pretty bad news for NXT all things considered. Sure, they're going to make more money, but getting national TV demands for a developmental brand/company has a very good chance to ruin this brand. All the good will WWE has built with NXT by keeping it as its own separate thing could eas...

Re: Official WWE Thread

Seth is now coming out and roasting Moxley for what he has said on podcasts after leaving WWE. Rollins is being an absolute bellend at the minute. I'm not quite sure what has spurred on these tweets and comments. Saying things like he loves Moxley for what they've done together but that he took his ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm also just going to add that I don't think Will Ospreay is winning the A Block. They have given him a very tough start, and I think he's going to be really struggling for most of the tournament. The match against Tanahashi on the final day seems more to me like he will play a spoiler and get the ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I know criticizing NJPW is kind of taboo, but how do you not put Jon Moxley as the main event on the Dallas show when they still have tickets available?

Dragon Gate is a fine promotion, let's not try to compare Dragon Gate to the IWGP here.

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

I don't get why they can't just have Hangman lose a competitive match to Pac. Hangman never really got past the midcard of ROH or New Japan, so it would seem to me that building him up steadily and getting the audience invested in his climb to the top would be a better strategy than having him imme...

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

I generally think Dave gets a bad rep from a lot of people who just don't read/listen to his stuff, but the idea that he is a victim of some lynch mob when he did what he did is amazing to me.

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

We certainly can. It's disappointing that AEW and NJPW won't be working together, at least for now, but NJPW's American expansion is going to take a massive hit.

Re: Pro Wrestling hot stove

I have next to no interest in watching KENTA right now. He has gotten out of shape and looks like he doesn't care. Maybe he'll look much different outside of WWE, but I would far prefer he goes back to Japan.

Re: Pro Wrestling hot stove

I mean WWE should use the wrestlers they have under contract, I get that Erick Rowan being used for another main act is annoying, but why not use him if he's under contract? WWE has a ton of talent that giving Rowan a supporting role with a main act is completely not a big deal.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

It's wild to think that Jay White may be main eventing Madison Square Garden.
