Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Damn, that main event went 40+? I didn't even notice. I really enjoyed Okada vs. Suzuki. An absolute masterclass in selling from Okada, particularly in how he presented the damage progressively as the match went on. Dude just looked like he was dying throughout, and the onslaught was so strong that ...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

Chapter 43 was bags of fun as usual, but it had it's fair share of low points for me. Riots vs. Kings was pretty decent, but there were a few bum moments that keep me from calling it any better than that. I like everything the Riots do but I felt there were some oddly coordinated spots, particularly...

Re: Revolution Pro Wrestling

https://twitter.com/RevProUK/status/826040936178278400 Holy fucking shit. I'm so glad I'm gonna be front row for this. The Bucks, Kenny Omega, Goto, Hiromu, KUSHIDA vs. Sabre. To say I'm excited is a pretty enormous understatement. Yaaaaaas! I'm coming down from Aberdeen for this show (and the Figh...

Re: wXw - Germany's biggest promotion

That's tremendous, lads - thanks. Looking forward to getting stuck into some German graps next week then.

Re: wXw - Germany's biggest promotion

Super interested in getting into wXw this year. How long does it usually take from their shows to hit VOD?

Re: WWE NXT 2017

Thought it was a pretty good show, though a step or two behind what I'd consider the norm for TakeOver. My favourite match was probably Almas vs. Roddy - was so good to see Almas come through with a great match at long last. Maybe he's figuring it out after all? DIY vs. AoP was bags of fun too, and ...

Re: VOW Flagship: WWE UK Tourney, NJPW Expansion & Chappin Chappin

If shin splints are an old guy thing, I'm absolutely screwed. Had them on and off since I was 20 years old, and I'm 29 now. Wolfgang really shocked me in the UK tournament. I've seen plenty ICW in my time (enough to know that the product isn't for me), and the guy never stood out in any way at all. ...

Re: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 11

The only thing that comes close is night four of the 2013 G1 Climax. Every match was at least "very good" (apart from Yano vs. Yujiro, obviously) but the closing run was particularly impressive:- Ishii vs. Shibata Goto vs. Archer Naito vs. Suzuki Devitt vs. Tanahashi Makabe vs. Okada Nakamura vs. Ib...

Re: The BritWres thread (Big Daddy for HoF)

Tonight's show was pretty much everything I hoped it'd be. No match was anything worse than "good," most were borderline great, and I went ****+ on Dunne vs. Andrews and Dunne vs. Bate. A couple of nice surprises with Wolfgang beating Trent and Bate winning outright too. Just a really enjoyable 2 ho...

Re: The BritWres thread (Big Daddy for HoF)

The show was decent enough, but held together by a tremendous crowd and a bunch of great individual performances. Tonight's should be a solid improvement -- looking forward to it. T-Bone was one "d'ya like dags?" away from turning into Brad Pitt's Snatch character though. Such a weird direction to t...

Re: How you got into Puroresu?

It was around about the time I discovered VoW. I was a tad disenfranchised with what I was seeing from WWE and the US indies I used to sporadically keep up with, and everyone was talking about this cool little NJPW thing. I figured I'd check out a show and see what all the fuss was about, so I watch...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

The Suzuki-gun return legitimately had me air-punching. I love Minoru: he's been one of my favourite wrestlers since I got into puroresu. I'm absolutely psyched to see him back in the company, and I'm looking forward to seeing KES tear it up in the tag division too. It was one of those things that I...
