Re: The Joe Lanza Is Right Wrestling Is Pretty Awesome Thread

FYI If the internet was as available in the 80's as it is now there'd have been fans from the 50's-70's telling everyone how awful wrestling has become with all these guys who can't really wrestle because they're not going to 1 hour draws every week or how in their day everything was more serious a...

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

The whole talk about "how much money we made back in the day" drives me nuts. I always find this point ironic since so many of his peers spend their free time traveling to po-dunk towns across the country to sign pieces of paper for scraps of money. I always find people trying to say he's wrong abo...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Although it was blatant as hell that they were going broadway (save the Regal deal at the beginning), they paced the match really well, and really put over Joe as a killer, despite him tapping for Zayn's fall (though they covered it by saying he was tapping to preserve energy for the third fall). I...

Re: Ring Of Honor

So they didn't fix the head sculpt and Elgin still looks like Bobby Roode. Contemplating buying the ROH ring regardless but that price point is rough. I could order one of the new WWE rings that's the same size with a WCW ring mat/ring skirt for probably around what it would cost after shipping from...

Re: Tier 1 Wrestling: March to Victory (March 20) iPPV

Just announced: https://twitter.com/Tier1Wrestling/status/703782420282269696 Yeah that's not what I'd consider a great replacement. I'd have to disagree. I think it has the potential to be great match. Ciampa's had some very good matches with Drew Gulak (a guy with a similar style to Thatcher) in t...

Re: ECW on the Network (Hardcore TV/TNN) thread

I don't have the emotional connection that others do to 94/95 ECW, so I've always preferred the TNN era. Loving these TNN episodes so far. Episode 3 has a really fun Lynn/RVD match in NYC and then as Mike mentioned, they have that great match in the Arena on the next episode. Need more Tajiri on th...

Re: Ring Of Honor

I thought the show was fine. I did nod off and miss basically the entire main event live (woke up for the finish) but I rewatched it on DVR this morning and it wasn't bad or anything. Lethal's finisher is the worst, though.

He doesn't. He says he's going to. But as far as I can tell he still lives in the UK
Ah, alright. I thought I'd read he relocated to California. Guess I read wrong!

Nope, but he met them in a tag match in the main event of Zero-1's first show with Nagata as his tag partner.

Re: NJPW/ROH Honor Rising:Japan 2016

To be awesome and fun? They're defended constantly and have been super fun to follow. They add depth & meaning to what can sometimes be depressingly long and meaningless undercards loaded with trios filler. They've been an absolute hit so far. Turned out to be a home run idea. We're going to have t...

Re: Ring Of Honor

Has there been any word on if there's going to be a ROH TV Title match on this Friday's PPV?
