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

Galloway/Ki got some great love at the time, from a wide body of people. Not something I thought transcended beyond quite good, but that's a minority opinion, it seemed.

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

How much of that is due to weather warnings, though? Fan interest is clearly in the shitter, but I don't think by that much.

Re: Tomohiro Ishii vs. Tomoaki Honma (NJPW 02/14/15)

I enjoy both men, and they had a great match before, but this just feels recycled and too long. This was there first match I thought? They've had a couple. The better match, I thought, was their outing from Dontaku 2014. Again, it starts off with the typical exchanges that I'm far from a fan of, an...

Re: Is Dolph Ziggler overrated?

Ziggler's an annoying case. He's a guy that can be a terrific bumper, if an ineffective long-term seller, but he doesn't layer his style to emphasise the spots he's bumping for. It's fun seeing him ragdoll for a monster powerhouse, but moments like that lose their specialty when he corkscrews his bo...

Re: Tomohiro Ishii vs. Tomoaki Honma (NJPW 02/14/15)

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I don't get any of the praise, here. I've read that it gets better once they get past the obligatory Ishii shtick, but I just cannot justify sticking it out in hopes that it does, especially in a project where there are so many matches with better starts. I enjoy both ...

Re: Cesaro vs. William Regal (WWE 11/21/2013)

Out of curiosity, has anyone seen (or have) their house show match from Geneva? Cesaro's obviously massively over (I've only ever found their entrances), so it would be nice to see them go at it in that environ.

Re: CM Punk vs. John Cena (WWE 02/25/13)

Definitely on the list. Right from the get go you could feel the nerves from Cena (not casually kissing his dog chains as he usually does but, rather, adding a prayer to his routine) and the newfound levels of cockiness oozing off the usually brass Punk. Everything leading up to this point, everythi...

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

Yeah, just being facetious on my part. I stupidly had some hope they'd do something against the grain for once. Alas. Prediction

Reigns (via Show/Sheamus/Del Rio) vs Ambrose (via Breeze/Ziggler/Owens)... most likely with a heel turn out of nowhere.

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

Unsurprisingly, there doesn't even appear to be a match up that feels fresh/exciting. Fray''s got dem insider scoopz. :roll:

Re: Cesaro vs. William Regal (WWE 11/21/2013)

Stand to be corrected but he was scheduled to get a bit of a push after his KotR win, and I believe a "thank you" world title run, but he violated wellness policy and received a 60 day suspension. That killed his push, and he alludes to it in his promo. Pity, as the house show run he got with Punk (...

Re: CMLL, the home of Cavernario

AH NUTS. I downloaded that video today, hoping to see some more Faraon. I've seen that match a couple times, and gif'd a few moments. Egipcio takes a HELLUVA beating there, and anyone who thinks lucha rings are jumping castles needs to see Egipcio's head come up short when hitting it. Chismo's not l...

Re: Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli & Dave Taylor vs. Mike Quackenbush, Jorge Rivera & Johnny Saint (Chikara 03/28/0

This match is some good stuff and I've watched it a couple times since finally finding it. Cesaro/Skayde has interesting ideas but you're mainly here for Danielson/Saint. It's not exactly up to say a Jushin Liger traveling act, but the old man's game and puts on a HOOT. Another match for the rewatch...

Re: CMLL, the home of Cavernario

That gif reminds me... biggest athletic/talent gaps between wrestlers and their minis? I'd guess Mascara Sagrada has that one wrapped, though.

Re: Cesaro vs. William Regal (WWE 11/21/2013)

This may possibly be the closest you'll find to maestro matwork within a WWE ring. Both men gel unbelievably well and waste almost no motion in creating a setting that showcases just how much this match means to both of them. It's seemingly a running gag throughout Regal's developmental matches that...
