Re: All Elite Wrestling (Discussion)

Really liked the first episode. Also liked the fact that I could buy it on Fite, stream it on my phone and the price didn't break the bank. A couple of euros for four episodes per month. Back in the olden day when I watched WWE I had to go looking for it on sketchy torrent and streaming sites. I thi...

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

Yeah, I suppose you never know what kind of wrestlers these guys make without that structure, especially guys who have only ever been in that structure. I believe Bray is one of those guys, Dolph Ziggler, too. Damien Sandow was one I really thought would be able to put the work in on the indies to m...

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

I said on Twitter I think the Fiend is just enough of out-there, something unusual, clearly thought up by somebody-not-named-Vince-McMahon and fans are so deprived of that kind of thing, they are willing to give it a shot. I personally was a fan of Bray back when it seemed like there was a shot of h...

Re: VOW Flagship: Anthem Buys AXS, Impact/NJPW Fallout, NJPW Destruction & RevPro Incident

The Bucks are so divisive I almost can't see a future where people will be able to balance personal opinion and overall impact/influence and judge them on somewhat of an even keel. Bias is inevitable in subjective discussions but to me, the Young Bucks are unquestionably influential but worthy of di...

Re: VOW Flagship: VOW vs Impact, Wednesday Night Wars, Bouncin' x2

"PAC is from" discussion made me chuckle. I'm sure to some British listeners that was like saying "Punk is from Pittsburgh.. No, Baltimore? No, he's definitely from Charlotte." But I don't blame you guys. I think there is a level of defensiveness in some Impact fans that is understandable and other ...

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Finals, KENTA/Shibata & WWE SummerSlam Review

The Naito thing feels like another example of people approaching booking from different angles. I think NJPW business will pretty much keep booming no matter what, but I think the Naito story has just been a major fumble from a storytelling quality perspective. It’s like if Thanos just killed all t...

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Finals, KENTA/Shibata & WWE SummerSlam Review

Real saddened not to hear a breakdown of the legendary BONE SOLDIER turn on Yoshitatsu, one of the best developed angles in history, resulting in a legendarily bad match between the two. BONER was 1000% right to turn on that dollar store HHH. The vote that Yoshi had on Twitter. Mwah, *chef's kiss* s...

Re: VOW Flagship: TripleMania, G1 Climax Final Stretch, SummerSlam Weekend

I don't do star ratings, largely because I don't have to. I will reference them conceptually ("Shibata vs Okada is a five star match" or "that match was close but not quite five stars for me"). It is very context-dependent. I think a promotion like PROGRESS was a place for matches that weren't alway...

Re: VOW Flagship: Fight for the Fallen, Extreme Rules, EVOLVE & more!

I am so fucking over JR burying any company he works for. Happened with NJPW, it's happening with AEW. Doesn't matter how much you pay him. Doesn't matter how good and logical the matches are. You can't teach an old dog new tricks, and apparently this guy cannot call modern matches in a way that acc...

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Opening Night, Extreme Rules, Fight for the Fallen & more!

I've only seen a few Riptide matches but I love their production as well. I think the last one I watched was Jinny vs Jimmy Havoc, not normally an intergender type of gal myself but I love both of them and the story was great, so I did enjoy the match a lot, and the production added to the story. I'...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

That card is awful. Progress is a joke currently Lmao. I came to this thread to ask if you guys thought I might be able to jump back into PROGRESS, as a fan of its heyday, with the heavy focus on storytelling and characters (with some great in-ring but not necessarily my main focus these days - I w...

Re: VOW Flagship: Fyter Fest, G1 Climax Preview, ROH BITW & more!

Cannot believe you guys became the Bladejobs and Chairshots podcast. You either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain. No, but seriously, I think the creative direction tensions in AEW is so interesting and I love that you guys touched on that. I think it won't be perfect simply one, no...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

The chairshot got the intended reaction, which was visceral anger at Shawn Spears and sympathy for Cody, out of me. I can't blame them. Chairshots obviously shouldn't be as frequent as armdrags, but I wasn't one of the people getting angry. It kind of sucks they're under such a microscope. Fans will...

Re: Official All Elite Wrestling (AEW) Thread

Frank - I agree about to commentary. A lotta people on Twitter and Reddit praised Goldenboy and fair play, for a total newbie (he's an e-sports commentator I think?) he was decent but he had this tendency to say something that Excalibur or JR said, only in different words. Excalibur would say someth...
