Re: VOW Flagship: BOSJ Finals, Dominion, TakeOver XXV & Aoki

I'll be prepared to take an L on this if I have to but I think y'all are nuts to give Jericho more than a, like, 5% chance of winning. And even that feels generous. If you think Jericho showing up and getting a title match for no reason looks bad, think of the optics of a G1 loser (presumably Naito,...

Re: VOW Flagship: Moxley on Talk is Jericho & AEW Double or Nothing

If I'd sat down for a week straight and tried to come up with all the takes I'd hear on this show, I'm not sure I ever would've thought of "I couldn't tell Excalibur and Alex Marvez apart." Anyway, here's my question about something much more important, although I'm sure y'all will cover it in more ...

Re: VOW Flagship (2/7): Call for Questions

As a sports fan, what's your opinion on Cody talking about how AEW's kicked around the idea of having win-loss records? Do you like the idea in theory? Do you think Tony Khan being a stats guy gives it a better chance of succeeding than with the promotions that have tried it in the past or do you th...

Re: VOW Flagship: AEW Rally, Wrestle Kingdom 13 & more!

I'm late to this discussion but I spent ten minutes looking at the women's independent scene right now outside of the names mentioned by armsofsleep and honestly, when you see them all laid out together, the talent pool actually looks fairly solid. They can rely on the brilliance of Eagles or Savoy ...

Re: VOW Flagship: Gabe Sapolsky Interview, Power Struggle & more!

Haven't had a chance to listen to the full show yet, but I just finished the interview portion and wanted to throw in my quick two cents. Really awesome work. I wasn't around when y'all were doing interviews regularly so this was my first experience with a VOW interview and I was impressed with the ...

Re: VOW Flagship: TakeOver, Royal Rumble, New Beginning & more

Great show, few things I want to comment on so apologies for the long post. - Rich, when talking about Velveteen Dream, briefly mentioned the match rehearsal thing that some of the greener NXT workers do. That doesn't matter to me one bit when talking about match quality, but would it be a stretch t...

Re: VOW Flagship: EVOLVE Weekend, 205 Live, NWA Empty Arena & more!

Kyle the Beast looks like he hopped right out of an E-fed from 2004, and he's got the name to match. I can't believe a promotion as high profile as EVOLVE is actually using a guy like that on their shows. Anyway, I agree that they seem to be heading in a WALTER/Lee and ZSJ/Riddle direction for WM we...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Won't go match-by-match but wanted to get some quick hit thoughts in. I think I'm the high man at ****1/2 for the opener. That might be the best straight 2v2 Bucks match ever (only ones I can think of that might beat it are a couple they had with the Time Splitters). Words can't express how much I l...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Been watching the Okada/Naito title matches from prior years over the past couple days in the interest of preparing for the Dome and, man, I forgot how good the first one at the 40th Anniversary Show in 2012 was. I think Dominion 2016 is still their best, but it's close. Highly recommend going back ...

Re: VOW Subscriber Tier - Tell Us What You Want

Here's an idea that's maybe a little more gimmicky, and might involve too much thought/research to be done with regularity, but how about an occasional ~30 minute "Top 5" show where y'all can both run down some favorites in different categories? Could be simple or general stuff like Top 5 Tag Teams,...

Re: VOW Subscriber Tier - Tell Us What You Want

Second the recommending matches to each other thing. Really, I'd enjoy anything with more match reviews. Bring back "Lanza Reviews Random Matches" in audio form, or even make an occasional Match Mailbag of sorts where the listeners throw in random recs for y'all to watch.

Re: VOW Flagship: Destruction in Kobe, EVOLVE Leak, No Mercy

I came in to give my thoughts on Daryl, but it looks like everyone's pretty much said most of what I was going to. I'll run through it quickly anyway, though. I think Rich hit the nail on the head when talking about how the problem wasn't so much Daryl itself, but how it was handled. Hiromu's always...

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

I agree with Joe that Jinder is an actively offensive wrestler. It offends me that WWE has a roster that's overflowing with incredible talent and yet Mahal is their champion. The only place we differ is that I've always thought he was awful and not just average before, so if he's actually gotten wor...

Re: VOW G1 Climax 27 Pick'Em (Standings & Discussion)

Pretty sure I went 5/5 on the first night of 2015 and 2016.

2/5 this time around. Doesn't bode very well.
