Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Adelaide was always likely to have the weakest attendance due to it's lower population. I think NJPW would be happy with that number, even if there were a number of empty seats. I was in attendance & it was a fun experience. The crowd was really into it & the action was solid. The Australian guys (J...

Re: PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla)



This has me intrigued as I've only seen Brody King in EVOLVE prelim matches. What are people's thoughts on King?

Re: Australian Indy Wrestling - Home of TMDK

If anyone is curious, UCW in New Zealand are streaming their show for free in about 15 minutes. They're also running an invasion angle angle and bringing over a bunch of Aussie wrestlers. If you're an MCW fan you'll recognise them; Caveman Ugg, Syd Parker, Alan Payne, Avary and Kellyanne. https://y...

Re: Dragon Gate

There's been something that has been bugging me about the ANTIAS unit formation. Have we had any explanation why Shingo has become so disposed to not only let T-Hawk take over, but to even sacrifice the unit he formed in his own image in order to highlight the younger guys taking the spotlight? It ...

Re: For those that have been in a ring - Does it change the way you evaluate wrestling?

My involvement in promoting/creative stuff in wrestling over the last couple of years has very much changed the way I analyze and think about wrestling and also how I interact with wrestling media/critics. I always probably cared about matches fitting for their spot on the card, but I care more abo...

Re: Australian Indy Wrestling - Home of TMDK

Spoiler from MCW Vendetta. Just watched Prehistoric Death Cult vs Brat Pack MCW Vendetta, wow, there is a lot to unpack here. To me this was one of the most frustrating and bizarrely worked matches I've seen in a while. Brat Pack and Syd Parker have been feuding for about a year. This matchup was a...

Re: For those that have been in a ring - Does it change the way you evaluate wrestling?

I nitpick a lot of little things that most wrestling reviewers don't notice. Stuff like feeding correctly, rushing through spots, sloppy Irish whips. Knowing what moves suck to take, and what moves look brutal but are actually pretty clean changes my reaction to things too. Like the big chair bump ...

Re: Wrestlers that "Had It" but never made it/retired...

I got one. Frightmare. Seriously, what the fuck happened with Frightmare??? I thought for sure he would have been a much bigger star. Indeed, he was the WON rookie of the year in 2009. To me, Mark 'Mr Touchdown' Angelosetti is a guy that I always thought was destined for bigger things. He has the l...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Apparently, there is a rumour about Drone being drunk on a Fantasticamania show. Is there any truth to this?

Re: PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla)

Just been reading the reviews for PWG Mystery Vortex & Starr vs Yehi got terrible reviews from Meltzer & others. Surely a match with those guys can't be that bad.

Re: Australian Indy Wrestling - Home of TMDK

Since I was thinking about this a week ago (interested in Scorpio and AJR's take): Is there any promotion that's truly worthwhile in Queensland? Is it Venom Pro Wrestling by default now? (I do take personal brownie points off any promotion that books Bullet Kliq). Man, I would have no clue to the b...
