I either want him out of NXT, or to have some matches that arent hour long epic struggles of survival.

I cant take another program like Ciampa or Cole.
Thursday was the anniversary of the seminal show:

Scope the match times.

Re: VOW Flagship: Dominion, KENTA, Dragon Gate & more!

Only listened to the last two shows yesterday. I thought both were two of your best. Re: the Youtube channels. Come October 1st I was told all the new contracts kick in and all the guys merch money goes to AEW and they own “everything”. So consolidation will happen. The Bucks have already stated the...

Re: VOW Flagship: Bouncin' Around Titan, Rush, ROH roster & more!

I think the way he approaches matches is just always going to be antithetical to the way modern workrate fans look at matches. Not that he can't do great workrate stuff, because he can. But he's always worried first about getting heat, playing to the crowd, getting his storyline over, cutting promo...

Re: VOW Flagship: Bouncin' Around Titan, Rush, ROH roster & more!

The "still waiting on Rush to crack ***1/4" thing is just a gentle reminder of how people can approach and appreciate wrestling in completely different ways. Some people love the greatest brawler in the world who can get heat with any crowd despite being a mega star to the level where he gets pops ...

DJZ has been damn good for a long time. Hope he gets a real shot and can avoid bad luck.
He has at least minor WWE and AEW interest. I believe he ends up in AEW.

If you know his life story him and his mother are dirt poor. I really rooting for him.

Re: Monday/Thursday TV Reviews thread

Strickland is definitely missing something. Like with Devitt/Balor in-ring wise he has a ceiling that tops out at ****. Balor has other things going for him on top of that though. When Stickland goes to NXT I wonder if management will put him and ACH together as a tag team as they will be in NXT at ...

Re: Pro Wrestling hot stove

Leon St Giovanni is another ROH wrestler who is coming due. He tweeted that he will become a free agent on January 1. Not a big news or anything. But Leon is known as a "good kid" by all accounts. Fits under the key NXT buzzword "coachable" very well. Personally never have closely watched his work....

So the path of a wrestler is now a circle:

Get trained at small school
Work crap shows
Move to bigger area, bigger school, work better indies
You are forgetting co-opting influential fans and journalists around this time.

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

Since a lot of people are popping in to say these changes have made them more interested in EVOVLE, I feel obliged to say that these changes have made me much less interested. Granted, to Joe's point I wasn't exactly a regular viewer before so you could argue they're not losing much, but had these ...
