Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

I can see why if they want to make TJP their ace of the divison by having a guy that works really great as a heel being the first challenger Kendrick isn't an established heel to this audience, though. He's the only guy they know with prior WWE credibility, and I think using him to establish a guy ...

Most Improved

This is a pretty strong category this year, but it's always hard trying to decide who really qualifies. I've got some names on general radar but no real definitive list yet. YOSHI-HASHI Big R Shimizu Eita Shane Strickland Donovan Dijak Zeus Mistico I can see EVIL making a lot of ballots but he hasn'...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

The presentation of wrestling on the main roster is such a disaster right now, it only took one segment for me to wish the cruiserweight division was still being kept separate on its own network show.

Cesaro has already basically been Zigglered at this point. I really hope he leaves before it's too late.

Re: WWE Cruiserweight Classic

I like the idea of WWE agents trying to tell Kota Ibushi not to take any bumps on his neck.

Re: 2016 WON HOF Ballot & Discussion

The Japan category is tough, a lot of guys who feel like they're right there on the border of the Hall of Fame.

Re: VOW Flagship: Cruiserweight Classic, Backlash, Shibata Injury & more!

Mauro's pop culture references (and some of his puro references, like when he compared Swann-Lince to Frye-Takayama) can come off as cringy and trying too hard, but in between those moments his commentary is really good, and he has credibility as a commentator unlike a guy like Striker. He works way...

If Mistico doesn't go in it makes the drawing criteria of the HOF look like a joke.

Re: Dragon Gate

The 8/14 show was pretty damn good. Dragon Kid/Eita vs. Tozawa/Big R was awesome, and the Shingo/Cyber Kong vs. Hulk/YAMATO match was also good. I wish more of the tag league made tape.

I'll also nominate the Gran Metalik vs. Zack Sabre Jr. match, as well as the TJ Perkins vs. Gran Metalik match.

Hopefully in the next year Mark Andrews will complain about still being called Mandrews and Josh Matthews can tell him to quit.

Re: WWE Cruiserweight Classic

Ibushi said that WWE was a great experience, but he is going back to Japan after CWC ends. Which means that he is not winning. Or he is working us all and he is winning the whole thing. But that's very, very unlikely. Obvious pick would be Metalik/Dorada, since he is an excellent wrestler and he's ...
