Re: Most Improved

Just talking in-ring, it has to be Roman but agree it feels weird voting for him when he's such a lock for overrated. My new found appreciation for Marty Scurll since he's revamped his look, character and just general ring presence puts him top of the list for me. His work is so much better now, and...

Re: Best Technical Wrestler

Never sure which way to go on this award. If it's not strictly a style thing I could easily go AJ Styles or Tanahashi or somebody, but if it is a pure style thing, what exactly is that style, do mat based/grapplefuck/mountevans and faux MMA all fit the bill equally here? For faux MMA I could see goi...

Re: Feud of the Year

Yeah if you really wanna go MMA, it's gotta be Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier as that happened in this year's window.

Re: Seth Rollins injured - Survivor Series Title Tournament!

It's just not in line with their thinking to have TV built around anything but the Authority, so somebody has to turn and be their new golden boy. It's also not in line with their thinking to turn Roman though, so it has to be Ambrose I think.

Or they'll go with Sheamus. Probably Sheamus.

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

This is the best outcome for anyone who genuinely wants to see the Bucks do what they do. A couple of shots in NXT would have been cool but I think that's just a pipe dream.

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

It's worth saying the Torch site was probably even worse than F4W for just as long as F4W was bad, but yeah it's very good now. The Dave factor really is a no contest though. Wade just isn't for me as a podcast host and both times I've given the site a try I'd struggle to give any examples of real n...

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

Less repetitive Raw recaps isn't a negative as long as he's still watching it for the Monday Dave show.

Re: Revolution Pro Wrestling

It's a British Wrestling thing. There's a few things to it, but generally there's a bit of an inferiority complex concerning British talent and "import" wrestlers. Part of it is the low wages the British wrestlers work for compared to what an American indy star would get. And there's plenty of examp...

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

For all the valid complaints, I think $10.99 for the Observer and the radio shows is definitely still worth it. It’s frustrating that Bryan will skip out on a big NJPW show like last week (with English language commentary no less) and be left with his only talking points being relating everything ba...

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 g...
