Re: The End of TNA? Or the beginning of CFW (Clusterf*ck Wrestling)?

I feel bad for anyone who has worked for this company except for the management, Dixie Carter is legit one of the worst human beings to be involved in the wrestling business Is Dixie Carter a worse human being than Paul Heyman? I don't know if she's worse, but she's shockingly similar in some respe...

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

Dave's hugely influential on Hall of Fame voting, but to a degree voters are going to ignore what he says. When he writes: "The other is drawing power. That’s meant as someone who pulled in big numbers at the arenas, or later, as the business changed, on PPV, based on consistent main event spots. A ...

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

I really don't see the comparison between Goldberg and Mistico, as Goldberg's hot drawing run lasted about 12 months before WCW's business fell off a cliff, plus Goldberg wasn't the catalyst for sparking the boom in WCW business (that was Hogan's heel turn and the nWo). Mistico's big push started in...

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

Dave is against the Von Erichs being treated as a group on the Hall of Fame ballot because they worked more singles matches than tag matches together as a group. I asked him about it last year via email.

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

BAHU responded to my Hayabusa drawing post on TwitLonger ( see: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1sp49qk ) so I'm pasting here, so people can see an alternative viewpoint and judge for themselves: "I'm not sure anyone could have followed Onita as a draw, but Hayabusa was really a worse failure in th...

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

I would be much more likely to take a "wait and see" approach with Mistico if voters had shown similar restraint on other candidates. But we had Lesnar going in last year for runs that combined were shorter than Mistico's run as the top star of CMLL and weren't as successful. If I was 100% confident...

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

He was absolutely a draw, considering FMW had no TV. FMW were still doing big houses, with him on top after Onita's retirement in 1995. I'm not sure anyone could have followed Onita as a draw, but Hayabusa was really a worse failure in that regard than Jun Akiyama in following Misawa/Kobashi. He di...

Re: VOW - G1, SummerSlam build, listener questions

Personally if you really don't give a shit about somebody, then you don't bring that person up on your podcast and talk about how "you love that he's obsessed with you". You really seem unaware Joe how you came across with that phrase.

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Climax 26, Super J Cup WWE Draft & more!

That's it! I found it very interesting. Seems like honest work using a pre-existing skill set to me. When the Summerslam main event has two people in Balor and Rollins that have done it what can anyone do? The World has completely changed from Ultimate Warrior being embarrassed or "shook" about Nat...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

I watched the match to see what the fuss was about and I didn't see it as this transcendentally great match, whilst also not thinking the viral GIF sequence was that bad in context, but it still elicited a LOL from me. It was definitely a fun match to watch, but left me thinking they had a better on...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

Regal publicly praising a match between two wrestlers he's courting for WWE shouldn't be too surprising.

I do think part of modern wrestling is coming up with spectacular sequences or memorable moments to create GIFs that go viral. Selling to allow time for a replay rather than being organic.

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

One of the things that really turned me away from F4W was Dave's coverage of DG in one of his newsletters. I don't remember exactly when it was, but he proclaimed that DG was "not a major company" and when you're that off the pulse, I can't pay for your product. He'll watch World always, and he see...

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

That's just not me and I know it's not the majority of wrestling fans whether @prowrestling wants to admit it or not. The majority of wrestling fans don't have time to read a 35,000 word essay each and every week. Let's not try and pretend we're the average fan nor shame someone for being a wee bit...
