Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Special in USA, Intermissions, Great Balls of Fire & more!

Summerslam 90 had an intermission. That's legit the last show I remember having an intermission from WWE. Kind of scared how much I agreed with Joe this week. Thank you! I knew it was a SummerSlam but I kept thinking of '89 for some reason. Every single WWE house show has intermissions. Maybe the l...

Re: Wrestle Circus - The Texas SuperIndie

oooooof, Dive Hard was like five and a half hours of mostly garbage. The last three matches were pretty decent but not so good that I'd sit through six hours of that shit again

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I think there's a shitload of casual NJPW fans who's only exposure is AXS and ROH. I know a couple and they are definitely fed up WWE fans who can't wait to see what Cody or Gunn can do in NJPW. These people have zero interest in going through the trouble of signing up for an NJPW World subscription...

Re: WWE NXT 2017 (A-show schedule in OP)

Yeah it really doesn't make any sense to just throw it out there without a build but I assume there will be Itami shenanigans involved

Re: Kazuchika Okada is the greatest singles wrestler in the history of wrestling.

I don't think any of that has anything to do with what's being discussed though and that's the matches themselves. I think worrying about those thing is irrelevant when considering the actual wrestling, but people watch wrestling for different things. You might need investment into characters or sto...

Re: Kazuchika Okada is the greatest singles wrestler in the history of wrestling.

You're taking a guy whose critical analysis of his HIGHEST RATED MATCH EVER amounted to "there was a lot of drama and great moves" as a leading authority. I like Dave but he's a bad critic and always has been. But Dave's reviews have always been more reports than analysis, so that's hardly a slight...

Re: Kazuchika Okada is the greatest singles wrestler in the history of wrestling.

I think a lot of people are looking at this too literally and getting caught up in arguing over minutiae rather than big picture. I think the point here is not star ratings or one man's opinion, but rather a justifed way to generally look at whether or not something is good. Like, nobody is going to...

Re: Kazuchika Okada is the greatest singles wrestler in the history of wrestling.

Even for funsies, if you just doubled Danielson's score in the OP, it wouldn't matter because for all intents and purposes his career is over, while Okada has presumably a long way to go. This is basically how I talked myself out of countering OP with an argument for Tanahashi. He's certainly got ti...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm pretty pumped about Tanahashi vs Gunn. It's super weird and out there and a match I never thought would happen and that excites me. I think it'll be an interesting match at worst, and pretty fun. Gunn is a whacky character and I'm always amused when Tanahashi gets to do anything a little differe...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Did the last NJPW World site update get rid of the tag list for navigation or am I just not able to find it? If you scroll down a bit on the main page the tag section is still there. It's in an annoyingly inconspicuous spot in between the NJPW Free Match videos and Backstage Comment videos, so it's...

Re: Glory Pro - STL's killer new promotion

Do they have an ondemand service like Defy? I'm not familiar with Defy's setup, but they do have VOD on smartmarkvideo Speaking of which, the third show is up now. I can't recommend Kyle O'Reilly vs Curt Stallion and Fenix vs Myron Reed enough. The tag tournament was also a lot of fun and I really ...
