Re: WWE Royal Rumble 2016

Really did not enjoy the Rumble match and that was all I saw from this show.

Re: Revolution Pro Wrestling

Scurll/Ospreay from High Stakes was absolutely outstanding. I liked ZSJ/AJ as well.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Isn't it an open secret that Ospreay is pretty much confirmed for Best of Super Juniors? I remember Kenny Omega saying he is recommending technical juniors for NJPW rather than traditional high-flyers in that interview, possibly last week, like Sam Callahan/Solomon Crowe. Marty Scrull certainly fit...

Re: Ring Of Honor

I like the daily match announcements. I think ROH made a huge mistake back in 2014 when they announced the cards from Global Wars & War of the Worlds all at once, as it caused a big uproar. Last year, when they made match announcements for the joint shows with NJPW one at a time, it worked out MUCH...

I'm almost certain Tanaka wasn't working NOAH while he was in New Japan.

Re: Let's talk about 1970s All Japan

I love 70s All Japan. Billy vs. Jumbo from 3/5/77 might be my favorite match of all time. I remember when Ditch uploaded that match (must have been freshman year, early 2007 I wanna say) and I watched it and was totally blown away to the point I sent the link to that match to everyone I knew, wrestl...

Re: Most Overrated

Nah, he's worse. He's such a by-the-numbers worker, there's no wit to his game, no depth, no charm. Honest to fuck, I feel like watching a robot wrestle. Also that stupid paint. But he IS smart, I'll give him that, you'll struggle to find a wrestler milking his reputation this effectively. Chris Je...

Re: WWE raids NJPW talent

With Nakamura, his contract is up as of 1/31/2016, as is all the "one year" New Japan deals. He offered to stay longer, as Devitt did, in order to make the transition smoother and to properly drop the IC title. Kidani told him to fuck off. So, he's working the CMLL shows and then doing the send off...

Re: TEW 2016 Announced

Haven't bought a TEW game since 2008 or 2010. Has he added anything to make playing as a Japanese promotion better? I requested the ability to set up tours (I know there's a 'tour' feature but you still have to manually book each TV show PPV) to where you could lay out which matches would air on whi...

Re: Favorite Year Of Wrestling For Different Promotions

For me it'd probably be something like this: WWF: 2001 - With ECW and WCW gone I was basically forced to go back to the Fed (10-year-old me didn't know how to find Japanese tapes) and I know the Invasion angle sucked but this particular year was so damn reliable and consistent when it came to ****+ ...

I'd say so. The Death Vegas match was great and the March 2012 Sumo Hall one was even better. I miss Takumi Soya.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

What's the logic here exactly? That the Misawa/Omega comparison is off because the All Japan tag title was a main event title and the IWGP Jr. Title means nothing? But that's a completely irrelevant side issue to the main argument that it's a mistake to elevate Omega because he lost to Kushida. Wel...
