Re: Daniel Bryan Announces Retirement

Will probably take a while to set in but this is kind of an end to a certain era and an era that was most formative to me as a smart fan. Sinclair buying ROH, CM Punk retiring from Pro Wrestling and now this. Also this has been such a slowly evolving story that it isn't as much of a shock as Edge's...

Re: PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla)

HOLY SHIT 2012 is legendary. I thought the absence of guys like Hero, Castagnoli and Tozawa from 2011 would leave a void but not one bit.

Where next from here? 2010 or 2013? Been through 2011 and almost done 2012 so far.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Damn, AJ/Nak isn't as good on multiple viewings as it is the first time. Still a kick ass match though. Interesting as I rewatched it for the first time today and enjoyed it more. I bumped it up in rating actually. That is very interesting. Might be just me. Hopefully they get another crack at it i...

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

https://twitter.com/reasonjp/status/695165956520177664 Could there be DRAMA? Also Nakamura is signed for 3 years according to Euhito I've always wondered this cause Shibata and KENTA are good friends. Shibata and Nakamura had heat for a while. So Nakamura was gonna have heat with KENTA by proxy. Hi...

Re: The 90's NJPW heavyweight scene

Inoki's vision of wrestling was heavily influenced by the catch-as-catch-can grappling he learned from Gotch. Even as early as the 70s, you can look at something like Inoki/Brisco as an attempt to present a legitimate-looking product to an audience with a 70s understanding of what legitimate grappl...

Hell yes. Didn't know what to call it, but fight aura sounds just about right. No idea how they managed to make it feel like that, maybe the colors of the arena? Could be the wrestlers themselves, very larger than life.

Re: Ricochet to WWE imminent?

Peep the question mark in the title. It's all speculation, every bit of it....Its not rumors from an official source that they're bashing over our heads with like the AJ Styles situation. There's absolutely no concrete proof that he's going, or any spoilers in this thread. Wtf? Don't feed him. The ...

Re: Ricochet to WWE imminent?

I didn't read any posts in this thread, just wanted to stop by and say the very thread itself and especially its name are highly suggestive and kind of an asshole move towards all of us who want to stay spoiler-free for Season 2. As if the wastelands of Twitter aren't enough, you had to bring the f...

Re: Ricochet to WWE imminent?

If you judge the season 2 spoilers, especially Ultima Lucha, you definitely can be lead to believe some things about Ricochet based on them. My prediction on late 2016 - 2017 is that NXT will be headlined by Cole, Ricochet, and Sabre Jr as Finn/Zayn/Joe all move up. That prediction doesn't feel tha...

Re: Ricochet to WWE imminent?

The second Twitter message probably has to do with a match he had on the Lucha Underground tapings. Pro Wrestling Sheet said he's signed thru 3 seasons. If it's the same deal as Hernandez - who wasn't legally allowed to go to TNA until after his season aired and then he got a release - Ricochet pro...

Ricochet to WWE imminent?

Ricochet followed Triple H on Twitter, then came out with this tweet: https://twitter.com/KingRicochet/status/691118662426714112 Went on to repost an NXT related tweet, and also the picture of HHH and Gabe. These don't amount to anything concrete, but check this out from an hour ago: https://twitter...

Re: Let's bury the World Wrestling Federation....

I don't know why people get pissed that Ziggler beat Owens in a good match, it isn't like Dolph squashed/buried him Nonsense win on a RAW. Why have Owens lose in inconsequential matches? That is the definition of the mid-card hamster wheel. It was fine. Owens has been beating Zig every time they wr...
