Re: VOW Flagship: Fastlane, New Japan Cup, WrestleMania Card

Listening to the show now. Usually I type essays but this'll be quick(er). Huge fan of you both. Y'all smartened me up about the Japanese graps like no one else and now it's favorite form of pro wrestling. Anyway, after a recent pretty shitty life changing event I've been trying to be a little less ...

Re: VOW Subscriber Tier - Tell Us What You Want

The reason you don't see more of this: we're all just normal people with normal lives, normal jobs. This is our hobby. There are some weeks (like last) where Joe and I couldn't even find the same time to both be available. It's one of the reasons we stopped doing wrestler guest shows, it's hard eno...

Re: VOW Subscriber Tier - Tell Us What You Want

I've always wanted to see more crossover/spirited debates between shows as I listen to most on the Network. Get Lucha of the Hidden Temple guys on there to have a friendly debate maybe. It's no secret The Flagship duo doesn't care much for Lucha Underground, so it could be fun. Not saying put it beh...

I use it because I'm always on my phone instead of laptop or PC. But it kinda sucks tbh.

Re: Underrated/Unheralded Matches

Morrison vs Mysterio from a SD in 2009 where Morrison won the IC title stands out to me right away. Feel it's an all time great IC title match from a bell to bell standpoint. It was this and a title match on TV with Jeff Hardy for the WHC that really stand out this year. Wrong thread my dude. This ...

Re: VOW Flagship: SummerSlam & TakeOver Reviews, NJPW Lineups & more!

Rich hit every fucking nail on the head with that "Why WWE is a chore" rant. He's completely dead on. A company that employs so many great wrestlers (among my favorites I the world and arguably have the best in AJ Styles signed) yet it's still a company I dread watching and dread consuming on all fa...

Re: VOW Flagship: Nakamura/Cena, G1 Scenarios & more!

Sonya Deville's gimmick is A1...its the serious side of Sienna's gimmick or a knockoff Ronda gimmick, idk, man...I think the MMA gimmick can work pretty often. She's just so far away from being ready in-ring, I don't think she's a viable candidate to beat Asuka. I think it should be as simple as ha...

Re: VOW Flagship: Nakamura/Cena, G1 Scenarios & more!

I usually am pretty in sync with both Rich and Joe but I have never felt more of a disconnect than during the NXT discussion. I agree O'Reilly didn't come off as a star but here's the thing, he never does. Kyle O' Reilly is never gonna be THAT guy who just commands attention the second he walks thro...

Re: G1 Climax 27

Been checking out this G1 sporadically (skipping the tags) and holy shit I love this company. Seriously how could you need anything more than NJPW is July. You're gonna get a shit ton of great matches in a short period every single year and we know it. Oh man, it's just what I needed for a small pic...

Re: The Lucha Underground Thread

Holy shit I absolutely loved Mundo vs Mack. Not the best match of the year so far, but hands down my favorite. I love how creative they get with these matches. They know they're gonna go long so rather than rely on starting slow/rest holds etc. They incorporate things like the band, and the side cha...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Also here's the translation of Dragon Lee's promo: "Thank you, seriously though I want to learn Japanese for all of you. I'm feeling pretty emotional right now, overly happy in fact. To be in this tournament. I'm gonna prove to all of you exactly why I'm here. And what I especially want is to earn y...

Re: VOW Flagship: Your Questions!

I see Japan as the place that still retains that star aura for me. Via them being the other, and distance and lack of access. So i can have my cake and eat it too. Access and humanize guys on US indies while star power and intrigue remains in Japan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Okada wouldn't...

Re: VOW Flagship: Your Questions!

This is really good insight and I largely agree. I have participated in chats with wrestlers before and after shows, during intermission, etc. and its great. Some guys are awesome to talk to and have a lot to bring to the table (sometimes literally :lol: ) but I'm all for main eventers and those in...
