Re: Wrestling Kingdom 11

The highlight my wresting calendar, but I'm working through it this year. I'm sure it'll be a slow day at work too so staying off social media and avoiding spoilers is going to be tough, but I reckon I can pull it off. There's not a single match I'm not looking forward to. If you'd told me a year or...

Re: Chris Hero heading back to WWE

Might he be Tweeting about the apparently erroneous story of him returning as Kassius Ohno rather than F4W's original post?

I certainly hope so. I'm gonna punch something if he doesn't come back now.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

My only real disappointment is that there's no Ishii singles match, but I guess it's tough to fit absolutely everybody in. A stacked card regardless -- looking forward to pretty much everything on it.

Re: Chris Hero heading back to WWE

Delighted for him, whichever roster he ends up on. He gets to work on (potentially) the biggest stage in America for a few years, then he'll surely have the opportunity to transition into a trainer/agent/whatever role when he eventually retires. My selfish side is gonna miss the hell out of his week...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Jesus, that GBH/GOD match. I woke up this morning thinking "I can totally skip the WTL finals, y'know." Glad I didn't. What a pace they worked.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Love Hiromu in LIJ. He's such a sleazy little prick himself -- fits right in. Gives his Dome match a little extra juice, too.

Re: Dragon Gate

Tried to get into DG earlier this year but it didn't stick, for whatever reason. After this week's flagship I thought I'd check-out the 10/11 and 1/12 shows, and maaaaaan, I wish I'd made an effort earlier. That 5 on 5 was something else. Aside from the younger guys, the "grumpy Japanese dad" charac...

Re: Absolute Intense Wrestling thread

I'm quite surprised it took so long for him to pull something like this in wrestling, actually. He was always getting himself into some pretty weird situations in the UFC, and obvious had a couple of wins overturned for being caught with marijuana in his system. Riddle obviously pulled the "it's jus...

Re: 205 Live, TLC, AJPW Sumo Hall, WON HOF & more!

Noam's plight makes me kinda sad. As a Scot, I really wanted to see my countryman do well, particularly given the last man to represent us in WWE was a bloody 3MB by member by the time he left. I've seen Dar put on decent-to-good matches in PROGRESS, but they eventually stopped using him. I was alwa...

Re: VOW Flagship: Goldberg, AJPW Sumo Hall, TakeOver & more!

If it sounds like I'm cutting off Rich repeatedly here, it is because there are audio sync issues as we struggle to find alternative recording methods with the downfall of Pamela. I'm annoyed because I thought this was a very good show, but it comes off like we are constantly talking over each othe...

Re: WWE Survivor Series 2016 - November 20, 2016

I enjoyed the hell out of this show. Going into it, I figured there was a pretty high chance that it was going to absolutely stink. I think this helped me watch with lowered expectations and anticipate nothing but 3+ hours of dumb fun, which is pretty much exactly what I got. The women's match was a...

Re: VOW Flagship: TNA Sale, Bound for Glory, King of Pro-Wrestling & more!

I thought this was a tremendous episode, and it was the first one that I've listened to twice in a couple of months. Got a particular kick-out of the early BritWres talk (particularly WCPW, as an employee of theirs), PROGRESS is my favourite thing at the moment, though. I binge-watched everything fr...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Ha. I wrote said list, and now it's being discussed on my favourite wrestling site (VOW, obviously). That's cool, thanks guys. I love Zayn/Cesaro, it's one of my favourite NXT matches. The only reason it was left-out was because it didn't appear on a TakeOver. Omitted on a technicality, and in hinds...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Aye, that was another super-enjoyable show. They've done a decent job of rehabilitating somewhat, and putting the focus back on stories and personalities. Gonna be super interesting to see what happens if the draft scoops up half the roster.
