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

They went from maybe the best crowd in wrestling to one of the worst. Being able to see who some of those dickheads are on TV and then recognizing them in person sucks. Overheard lots of "this dude is terrible" pointing at Mania this weekend.

Who has time to go to six or seven shows per month?

Re: *NEW* ROH Thread. Keep it clean.

Interesting to note that before this show starts, Myron Reed, The Champion of Michael Elgin's promotion, is wrestling Curt Stallion https://twitter.com/MichaelElgin25/status/869643766910603268 Daniels as champ and a gauntlet match to determine his challenger at that show is a total non draw for me,...

Re: Glory Pro - STL's killer new promotion

The second show is up on SMV http://smartmarkvideo.com/glory-pro-may-7-2017-long-may-we-reign-alton-il-download?search=Glory%20pro There's a review on the main VOW site that pretty much reflects my feelings. These are really fun shows and Elgin is booking logical show-to-show angles and I couldn't b...

Re: Next wave indie stars

I wasn't really sold at first, but after three great Glory Pro shows, I'm totally sold on Myron Reed, Mat Fitchet, and Davey Vega. Reed's match with Fenix last Friday was a total banger and I wish I could see this Sunday's match against Curt Stallion at ROH. That is sure to be great. He's only 19 an...

What I saw of that show live before I had to leave was a lot of fun

Re: VOW Flagship: Your Questions!

I see a ton of old hardcore kids at New England indies. It's like a hell fest reunion! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk When I used to go to fests, I knew I was close to the venue because I'd start to see people that looked like hardcore kids. Three years of going to Mania and it's the same thing...

Re: VOW Flagship: Your Questions!

Before getting real deep into wrestling, I was deep into the hardcore punk scene, and instantly the thing I loved was all the similarities between the two: the hustle, the DIY approach, and often the lack of division between performer and viewer. People slapping the mat at a PWG or Beyond show feels...

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

Asuka seems to be a big deal still for a lot of people. I've been to five nxt tour shows and people always react huge.

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

Yeah, Ember was advertised for that last tour (which I think they didn't even add until after the injury) and wasn't there.

They also advertised Sawyer Fulton, who also wasn't there but returned in Orlando that same night. Weird.

What's wrong with that? Sometimes I prefer it. Kinda gives it the feel of being there live.

Re: Next wave indie stars

My girlfriend recently said the same thing. Other than the Io/Mayu draw from Stardom 12/2015, she's never seen anything she didn't think was subpar. "It's just not as good."

She's not a wrestling fan at all outside of live indie shows though.

Glory Pro - Naito vs AR Fox - 2/18/18

Sunday, May 7th is Glory Pro's second show, "Long May We Reign." This is a pretty big deal for the St Louis area. While there's been promotions around the area for awhile, none of them have been able to heat up as fast as Glory Pro has so far after their debut in February. Michael Elgin has packed t...
