Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

i enjoyed Mox v Naito. It's sort of a better, higher paced version of Naito v brawler jericho. I dug Mox getting pissed at Naitos tranquilo antics and naito fighting back against mox's physicality ishii v juice was fire the booking is nuts Putting Taichi, White and Yano in the same block is now hurt...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

yeah, losing despy is rough. I was even looking forward to see how much Flip improved Narita is fine - he won't win any matches, but the dude is looking like a future star so this will be tremendous experience for him Ospreay is gonna waltz to the Finals now, no one can sniff him in the A block he'l...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Juice added some stakes with the whole "i will slam fale", so it cracked 3 stars (which many had as the ceiling). 3.5 Ibushi / ZSj was excellent. Magnificent exchanges. This is striker v grappler done very, very well. The ONLY thing holding it back was that ZSJ pretty much couldn't win, given Ibushi...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

This was extremely well done. Double or Nothing's story telling really shows how compelling pro wrestling can be when done with focus on characters, handling their backstories with care and building up feuds to feel real.

I dont have high expectations for the match in-ring, but i want to see it

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

Just saw this as well. Paying for, instead of getting paid for, TV time is a massive, dynamic changing piece of news. AEW is shelling out contracts for alot of talent, all of which could be handwaved if there was "TV money" coming in Meltzer himself reported multiple big money offers on the table fr...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

This seems fairly significant, although not specifically to AEW From FIGHTFUL El Rey Network and Baba-G Productions which are the television company and network that host Lucha Underground were hit with multiple lawsuits including a class-action lawsuit filed by Lucha Underground talents El Hijo del...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Okada vs. Ospreay was really good, although not quite the barn burner I was expecting. I really have no complaints about the wrestling, which was very high level throughout. But there was just a lack of drama with Okada's win never really being in doubt, and with these two being on friendly terms. ...

Re: VOW Flagship: XFL, Prichard, Kofi,Honor Rising, AJPW

Realized we spent a bunch of time talking about Goto pinning Cobb in the tag, but it was Will. Not that Will beating Cobb is any less puzzling with Castle right there begging to take the fall. Lastly, I think it's another giant flashing sign that Will Ospreay is approaching official heavyweight sta...

Re: VOW Flagship: XFL, Prichard, Kofi,Honor Rising, AJPW

Isn't Ospreay pinning Cobb a fairly obvious setup to Ospreay/Cobb at MSG?

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I have Ishii/Ibushi in the finals with Ibushi going to MSG

No one's gonna complain about that match as a finals matchup, it'll be a 5 star candidate

It saves Ibushi or Naito from burning a matchup with Okada

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

This NJ Cup field is awesome! There are so many neat matchups possible once you start digging into the bracket. I am all about Colt v Yano in a comedy WAR We could get a ZSJ/Suzuki grapplefest Ospreay/Okada Ultimately I'd take the safe pick of Ibushi but when i do the bracket i see that his path is ...

On 1/18/19 i got a ship notice, but according to the tracking, no package was received and no updates since then. Has anyone else used their website and...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Kushida's comment about wanting to wrestling around the world pretty much seals that he's going to WWE.

He's over in the US and UK, can work any style, crowd friendly character. Should be able to slot anywhere on a card across NXT, NXT UK, and 205. They should exploit this versatility
