Re: VOW Flagship: The Fiend, New TV Landscape, NJPW, ROH

The Fiend is that perfect "they got something here" which arouses people that there will be a tonal shift in some way. Promos that toe the line of "real life commentary" while not completely tearing down the 4th wall, a bit of menace in there, etc. But it's Bray in a mask. Doing the mandible claw. T...

Re: STR: general feedback, comments, etc.

Our show with Garrett Kidney seems to be getting good response. Consider this a plug.

We'll be moving our tapings to Saturday to be able to watch all this "product"

Re: VOW Flagship: WrestleMania Weekend Review, G1 Supercard & WrestleMania 35

The WM newbie thing is no excuse for Rich's busted state. As his chauffeur we went to all the same places, and even though I've got a decade on him and it was my first WM weekend I was at work bright and early Monday morning, none the worse for wear. Obviously the answer is that old dudes like Lanz...

It's spelled Stuy. I've never once in my life encountered that word. How the fuck would I know it's supposed to be pronounced Sty (Stye)? You're a rap fan Correction, he's a wavering rap fan. Okay, but even if Rich is Captain White Bread, he's heard Billy Joel's "You May Be Right" I've been strande...

Re: VOW Flagship: Young Bucks & AAA, AJPW, Mania Weekend & more!

This whole indy celebration really hit peak in Dallas in my opinion. Wrestlecon and WWN were within walking distance of each other, every show was talent under the radar trying to knock it out of the park etc. Now it's 40 shows, many with just a gimmick to it, talent tries to book as many as they ca...

Re: VOW Flagship: Fastlane, NJ Cup, Wally Yamaguchi & more!

This right here is what irks me about WWE storytelling and what I tried to put across on the show. I don't care the path, the result, whatever. The fact that stories for the last two decades have relied on a perform having to walk up to a McMahon hat in hand and ask for a chance/opportunity/shot ha...

Kofi/Bryan isn't even as important as Shane/Miz

they may be curtain jerking for the hot opener.

Re: VOW Flagship: Elimination Chamber, Kofi Kingston, Giant Baba Memorial, RevPro & more!

Disagree with Joes Kofi take massively. I don't think anyone sees him as the future face of the company or someone who needs to be the top guy on a brand for 6-8 months but when was the last title match at Mania that had a face go over that was beloved. For me Kofi should have faced Bryan at Mania ...

Re: VOW Flagship: Elimination Chamber, Kofi Kingston, Giant Baba Memorial, RevPro & more!

Eh. I came in through WWE so maybe I'm part of the problem and the brainwashing, but I just dig bigger dudes more. It's not even height, just having mass gives you an aura of menace. And it's very much highlighted when you see openweight matches. Watching Gresham vs. Thatcher was a different experi...

Re: VOW Flagship: Elimination Chamber, Kofi Kingston, Giant Baba Memorial, RevPro & more!

Tend to think Vince is so "youth culture obsessed" that he's fascinated by a guy who can carry the aura like Aleister Black whereas a guy who just goes to get some ink (for example, if he were to look at TJP's new ink and think he's trying to convey something he's not). I'm not positive we can rever...
