Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2016

Good 8/10 Rumble, it was solid, most of the ring work was fine, I'm happy for Kalisto and Styles (and maybe Zayn) for their respective opportunities) but I wouldn't call it one of my favorites. They didn't need to squash Henry and Swagger after winning those spots, it just makes two legit athletes a...

Re: The Divas Revolution Has Died

Fox is now the most underrated Diva in the company (The "Revolution" Divas, Paige, and Naomi who is the leader of the stable, are right where they need to be). She is a pretty good wrestler when given a chance, but those chances are for her to act as a jobber. Just once (in present day) I'd like WWE...

Re: NJPW/CMLL FantasticaMania 2016

For my first Fantasticamania, I have to say it was pretty good. The ring work overall was amazing and the stories told (Lee vs. Kamaitatchi, Tanaka and Kohmatsu leaving etc.) were great. It took me all three New Japan World show to figure out what was going on though as I don't watch CMLL. I loved h...

Re: TNA: It still exists, kind of!

I'll actually give them credit for calling those guys out for their shrewd business move after things didn't break TNA's way. It was not a great move and it may end up making any relationship they had with New Japan worse, but I respect that they even had the guts to put out that statement knowing t...

Re: VOW Flagship: Wrestling Observer Awards & Royal Rumble 2016

The thing about Chyna is despite all that, she started to get popular with mainstream media. I remember her doing 3rd Rock from the Sun for a few episode and Whose Line is it Anyway. With a couple acting lessons, she could have successfully moved on from the company. But nope, her man left her and s...

Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2016

WWE.com announce earlier this afternoon that there will be a fatal four-way tag team match to decide two vacant spots in the Rumble. Facing off are The Dudleyz, The Ascension, Mark Henry and Jack Swagger and Darren Young and Damien Sandow. Yeah, that last pair is an odd one. They must want Titus in ...

WWE Royal Rumble 2016

I don't know how many of you are excited for the Royal Rumble, but seeing how close it is I felt a separate thread of discussion would be appropriate.

Re: TNA: It still exists, kind of!

Hey, I'm happy, there is no such thing as bad publicity (ok there is, but not in this case. I know a little about Ospreay but I have never seen any of these guys work, so it will be interesting.

Re: TNA: It still exists, kind of!

Two weeks into their new home and Comcast has decided to make it harder for people to find PoP TV. I short they moved it to a more expensive cable package. http://my.xfinity.com/channelhelp/ That's a shame, I actually wanted to see Impact and I had it after a year, now it's off my TV again.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'll be honest, the schedules for both shows look pretty light right now. Hopefully, we can get some more story relevant/anticipated match ups, but we'll probably get three or four 8-man tags between the two shows.

They should still use all three for the tour regardless and give them some exposure.

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

Considering Nakamura is allegedly going to the main roster immediately, he may have to use his swag and skill to do his talking for him. https://facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1025944207448633&id=258637127512682 The Underboss - Bad Luck Fale There has been a lot of speculation around my future.

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

I know Nakamura speaks English, but how well? If he's good enough to cut sick promos like he seems to do in New Japan, he's money.

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

Does it bother anyone else for as little they use their roster at full capacity and the 50/50 booking that WWE/NXT's roster is going to get even bigger? Unlike current New Japan who does well giving all their talent a moment in the sun or WCW who at least gave even their jobbers regular screen time,...
