A fair point.

Re: The BritWres thread (Big Daddy for HoF)

Yeah they’re very much PCW booked shows with ROH talent on. I don’t think those booking PCW have too much ROH product knowledge - the shows last year never really felt like ROH vs PCW shows at any point, especially with some of the weird matches like Brodus Clay vs Mike Elgin. We’ll probably never ...

Re: Insane Championship Wrestling

Went to one of their shows last year - it was okay, nothing great or anything. The wrestling isn't as good as Progress, PCW, Rev Pro, so tbh I don't think I'll be going to see any further ICW shows in future. But they have done really well to sell out their big show in a few weeks. Fair play. $150,0...

Re: The Official All Encompassing Johnny Gargano Thread

I like Johnny - think he is a solid worker, and would be a good fit for NXT full-time.

I saw him live in the UK earlier this year, and I was impressed. Worked hard, got a good reaction from the crowd.

Re: WWE NXT 2015

Got tickets for NXT Newcastle with my brother - looking forward to that.

Surely they'll use some UK talent on that tour.

Re: The BritWres thread (Big Daddy for HoF)

Pretty excited about the PCW/ROH shows. Joey Hayes/Jay Lethal could be the match of the weekend. Mastiff/Cole should a barn-burner too.

Got the Saturday off work, so think I'll get a hotel for the weekend and go all out.

Re: The BritWres thread (Big Daddy for HoF)

What's the goss on Ospreay no longer working for PCW? He mentioned it on twitter some time back, saying it was a shame, but that's the way things go. Anyone know? Apparently he asked for a pay rise because he was moving house, and said he justified it with the buzz he's generated elsewhere, and Flu...

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

Been at the site for just over 4 years. I know some people didn't like the Todd shows, but I really did, and the whole episode was poorly handled by the site. Lack of communication of the subject, threads and posts being deleted if you mentioned Todd. It was way over the top. I tried out the Torch f...
