Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

a non-discussed point with Kenny is that he is definitely past his peak from last year The guy has only had 7 matches total this year, per Cagematch. That includes the incredible main event he had against Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom in January. And two of the four singles matches were against dude...

Re: VOW Flagship: Kobe World 2019, WWE vs. AEW & more!

As someone who just moved away from the DC area after living there for 6 years, I think AEW will do just fine having the first TV date in Capital One Arena. There's 6 million people in the metro area (one of the reasons I moved away!). The Caps fill up the arena in the middle of week on the regular,...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

I also don't agree that "everyone knows who he is." He's never appeared on national tv before. His work on Evolve and PWG shows are the most visibility he's had and the stage of AEW is clearly much bigger than either of those. They could have easily taken a few moments to have Cody show Darby some ...

Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2019 - January 27, 2019

My only issue with how the women's matches turned out...you have Becky lose clean as a sheet to Asuka. Great for Asuka. Becky now gets to challenge anyone...and...instead of getting the rematch against the person that just beat her clean as a sheet...she is going to challenge Rousey instead. I get ...

Re: Music of the Mat #50: Triple H

On the unused version of "The Game" with the rock/rap feel, I've always thought they uitilized the same vocalist they used for Jericho's theme. I have no proof, it's just the timeframe both themes were introduced and the inflection of both vocals that makes me think it's the same person.

Re: Official WWE Thread

I think Bryan has always been a bit underrated on the mic, but he really delivered in his Smackdown promo. While Bryan has always been excellent as a heel during various points of his career, I'll withhold judgment until I see how it plays out this time. The pieces are there for a really great run, ...

Re: VOW Flagship: Becky, BJW Sumo Hall & Bouncin' Around the Indies

I tend to think that the overall age of the roster, coupled with the relentless touring schedule has a much bigger impact on the output we see on TV than we might think. Beyond the wear & tear aspect on guys who have been doing this half their adult lives, what's the thing you always hear vets say? ...

Re: NWA Thread - The Relic, The Remnant

If anybody would know stuff about that era of the NWA, it might be someone like Kris Zellner or Dylan Hales. Coming back to present day NWA, it will be extremely interesting to see how they capitalize on all the attention Cody & All In has brought. You'd think with the way that Cody won the title, A...

Re: VOW Flagship: ALL IN, Hogewood, Bouncin' Around Japan

Another thing about the discussion regarding Bryan's contract... I think someone needs to do a thorough investigative report about the fuckery around those contract freeze deals that happened with Mysterio & Bryan. I know WWE isn't like a normal sport, but can you imagine the shitstorm that would oc...

Re: Neville/Pac released from WWE

As far as people on 205 Live go, I think back to stories after Rich Swann got fired. He was said to be down about losing his WWE job. That tells not everyone on the 205 Live roster shares the same opinions as Neville. I always think to how people keep talking about how indies and other promotions a...

Re: Neville/Pac released from WWE

I'll be very interested to see where PAC ends up. And let's be honest, every promoter in the world is calling him at this point. He may not be as media-savvy as Cody, but he's so talented I think he can have as big an impact on the independent scene. I'd be shocked if he doesn't end up affiliated wi...

Re: Official WWE Thread

Kinda makes all those years of doomsaying reporting on ratings by Bryan and Dave look pretty fucking stupid. Not like some of us weren't saying they were wrong all along.... To be fair to them, the television landscape has drastically changed even in the last 6 months. With FOX shifting away from t...

So people and PWG are finally doing/saying things I said years ago and when RobViper had a meltdown over. Ok. Just as a casual observer who hasn't been following the indy scene very closely over the past year or so, it seems more that PWG has been forced to do things this way for several reasons, r...

Re: All In: September 1

I thought the same regarding the WNBA schedule, but apparently it has not been announced yet. There's nothing for 2018 dates on their official website as of today. I think Wintrust Arena would actually be a really good venue for the show. I have no clue how much of a production they want to make All...

Re: All In: September 1

I was wondering why Wintrust Arena hasn't been mentioned much, as I thought that would be a great venue if they can snag it. It's certainly more easily accessed by mass transit than either of the other venues. Perhaps the WNBA franchise (Chicago Sky) already has a home game locked in that day. The o...
