Re: NJPW G1 Climax 25 (Discussion)

I really liked Tanahashi/Tenzan. I'm a sucker for "veteran getting his last shot/last run" type storylines, and this may be Tenzan's last G1 so him in the main event vs Tanahashi was really fun. Got behind him, crowd was great also.

Re: NJPW on AXS TV: New multi-year deal!

Really good news, from what I recall this show is pretty great. I've only watched the first season, but I'll try to catch up some time.

Re: As NJPW looks to expand globally, will their name hold them back?

Well, that sounds really silly to me but if someone told me others really think like that I wouldn't be surprised. I think the lack of english commentary is something that really turns people off though.

Re: TNA 2015: It still exists, kind of!

They did air that battle royal Galloway won, although Hernandez was never mentioned and was barely on screen at all. The match seemed heavily edited also, so they probably did have to take his stuff off.

Re: The Lucha Underground Thread

I think they were 'forced' to make Texano/Blue Demon because Chavo got hurt. Granted it still doesn't make it any less Russo-esque, but that's probably why.

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Women of Honor is almost a running joke in terms of it's off and on nature. But expect this to be pretty decent relative to their experience levels. Deonna will likely end doing fairly big things in Wrestling. Has the absolute right attitude: http://i.imgur.com/QjcCnAK.png Sorry 7/25 in Baltimore. ...

Re: WWE Battleground 2015

Brock's match should be fun, Cena/Owens also. Only two matches I'm really looking forward to although as much as WWE's booking sucks, PPVs are normally much better than TV due to match quality alone.

Re: The Language of WWE

Great article, a good read. Also agree that most of this language limitations are completely useless. And I love how internet trolls redirects to the F4W boards.

Re: Has Brock Lesnar really been worth it to the WWE?

As you said, I particularly really enjoy watching him and Heyman and he's one of the most entertaining acts (probably the most entertaining), but that is as much a result of his awesomeness as it is a result of the mediocrity of the rest of the program (wouldn't put the blame on the roster but mostl...

Re: WWE NXT 2015

Charlotte/Sasha was a very fun main event. I also really liked Corbin's newfound hatred for indy darlings HHH marks for.

Re: Does Ryusuke Taguchi have go away heat?

I started watching NJPW last year, so far I gotta say he's just been there. I'm not particularly a fan of the comedy but it doesn't enrage me either. I do agree that his ideal position is on multi man tag openers also.

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

WWE is pretty bad. I quit watching Raw soon after WM, couldn't take it anymore. Discontinued storylines/pushes all over, if something it not discontinued it is probably repetitive, same matches every week, very little interesting in the midcard, etc. etc.
