Re: PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla)

A psychologist would have a wonderful time reading this thread. I'm in the group of people who would NEVER pay for a DVD; but I'm also in the group who is unlikely to buy an mp4 as well, though that's the more likely of the two options to occur. Sounds PWG is more than smart enough to realize that t...

Re: Potential WWE Network Changes & FloSports Speculation

Do you think EVOLVE would sell its back catalogue to a WWE 'competitor' if it meant severing ties with WWE? Or even w/o WWE permission? Of course, when you consider WWE owns a part Flo means they're not really a competitor. The idea that WWE invests in a company which then just happens to develop a ...

Re: VOW big picture feedback

1. I found the podcast through interest in New Japan, so that's always my preference to listen to. I enjoy all other wrestling topics discussed as I have a feel for your tastes, so I can filter that and figure if there's something I should check out. The only interviews I've ever enjoyed were with B...

You'll never get this far down, but - Best and/or favourite wrestler under 25 in a) Japan, b) Europe and c) North America.

Re: The End of TNA? Or the beginning of CFW (Clusterf*ck Wrestling)?

Well, looks like she either borrowed the money personally from Corgan or guaranteed it.


Why she let it get to this point rather than face reality and sell it, who knows.

Re: The End of TNA? Or the beginning of CFW (Clusterf*ck Wrestling)?

Aaron would be better to hit on specifics of us corporate law, but I can hit some generalities. So, girst off, we don't know a) what capacity Corgan is suing in (as shareholder, aggrieved attempted purchaser, etc) or b) specifically WHY he is suing (can make educated guesse, but still guesses). The ...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The dream that is Yohei might not be impossible......Sho was in the US last week, no Yohei in tow. Neither has been on CMLL shows this month (according to Cagematch at least, I stand to be corrected).

If he could wrestle, this would be a bit intriguing, but I'd rather someone new.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Well, Japan is used to accepting wrestlers who got beat up badly in MMA fights, so he'd have that going for him at least.

Re: Being Punked by Punk

UFC stopped being about just putting elite fighters in the cage a loooooooooooong time ago. They've put on more than their fair share of freak show fights. They got what they likely expected out of Punk - a good number of ppv buys, a reminder that not just anyone can hope in the cage and fight, and ...

Re: VOW Flagship: Kevin Owens Title Win, DDT Peter Pan & Bouncing Around Japan

If I can be a total nerd for a moment: You guys forgot how Mike Rotunda ended up in the teal windbreaker, captain's hat and the tiny anchor on his trunks. Think back to the Varsity Club days - Rotunda was the 'captain' of the team. After the Varsity Club dissolved, he came back as a literal Captain,...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Owens win was used as a device to kick off whatever Trips/Steph story they have cooking. Owens winning the title was secondary. You can'r re-do that moment, and it's a shame. I like him and i'm happy for him, but I'm highly skeptical of all of this, and with good reason. Again, we'll expand on the ...

"The Female [redacted]" regarding the final sentence in Texas circles. A classy bunch running in those Texas circles. You are going down the wrong road here.

Re: Wild SummerSlam Weekend, Talking Smack, Super J-Cup & more!

Speaking of songs. Cody's indie theme is so weak and dated isn't it? That and the leglock didn't really "sing" his first weekend on the indies. I don't think Joe should feel bad about Ember Moon and coming in skittish about her in NXT after seeing a lot of her indie career. As she has owned up to h...
