Re: VOW Flagship: Gabe Sapolsky Interview, Power Struggle & more!

Between the interview and Gabe's Twitter, there wasn't a detail I've heard privately in the run-up to all this that he hasn't put out there. He was as honest as any promoter is going to be. Still can't believe he put out the brutal advances recent shows have had. I feel like recommending talent woul...

Re: Most Improved

Becky Lynch is the flavour of the month obviously. And her status could change in a few weeks. I said in jest on Twitter in July that Becky would have the belt already if she dropped the tea time and Becky Balboa stuff. But it actually came to pass. Becky in the last year has been through a lot of p...

Re: Most Improved

Kyle Fletcher, Harlow and Holidead need a mention too. Lio Rush on 205 Live impressed me a lot this week in particular. Both as a wrestler - not an indie spot guy anymore and the pressure cooker of Raw and being micromanaged by Vince has improved his promo skills a lot. In January I thought he was o...

Re: Most Improved

*Waves fist at Jordan* I like this award and will think about it a bit more than others. But I say offhand Carmella, Tony Nese, Xia Li, Karen Q, Liv Morgan, Buddy Murphy, Juice Robinson, Momo Watanabe, Lucky Kid, Allie Kat, Sho Tanaka, MJF and Deonna Purrazzo. Austin Theory was a stone cold flop in ...

Re: VOW Flagship: Gabe Sapolsky Interview, Power Struggle & more!

The only question I really would've wanted asked that wasn't was how is Gabe planning on changing his booking. He promised that here and has promised it before, and has lived up to that to varying degrees over the years. It was really interesting to hear Gabe say his philosophies have changed a lot...

Would love Stokely here.

I think if we've soured on Heyman, Regal deserves some love for this year. "Overwhelmed principal at a school for the entitled" is a good role for him
Regal spent most of the year mysteriously absent.

Re: Most Outstanding

You've comprehensively covered everything but I hope Jordynne Grace or Tessa Blanchard at some level of minor/niche consideration.

Will be an interesting gauge of how much of "Wrestling Twitter" subs or votes.

Re: Most Disgusting Promotional Tactic

Pushing the ethics of the matter aside if I possibly can. They could have made up the money they are making from the Saudis by making their product something people want to watch or pay to attend on a weekly basis.

Re: Tag Team of the Year

The Bucks could be "smeared" by it being tagged as reputational than an actual pick. But would have to interrogate each voter to see if they've watched ROH TV consistently this year.

Personally Strong/O'Reilly still have the edge.

Re: Best Brawler/Brody Foley Award

A weird award in the modern context.

Janela and Callihan should be considered too.

Is Takeda on the Meltzer or Observer reader radar at all?

It is Zack. But this year is the first year that I've experienced people not first mention Gresham's height first or for it not to matter.

Re: Evolve (WWNLive)

As we laid out on the podcast, he's providing a niche above the Largo Loop and below NXT. The AA. Guys who aren't totally lost causes can to go AA to refine their main event level skills for their eventual move up to NXT. The AA is what DVDR board has relabeled the EVOLVE thread over there. I think...
