I recommended it in the Japan 2000's nominations. It is the last nomination in the thread along with some others.

Re: Your 2016 new best friends

Tetsuya Naito: I always thought this guy was a good wrestler but he really never clicked with me until this year. It seems like he finally got the character work at the same level as his in ring work. Hell, I think it may have even elevated his in ring work. "Progress" wrestlers: I started watching ...

Re: How you got into Puroresu?

My first exposure to anything Puro related was in 1989 when I saw the Great Muta for the first time in NWA. I was so young that I did not do any digging on where he came from nor did I have the wherewithal to think there was wrestling in Japan. I thought he was so cool and whenever NWA TV came on I ...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

It has probably been covered already but can someone tell me a little bit about the names that are on the ring? It seems like the names change show to show and I even saw the name "Mike Hunt" on the ring.

It appears he wrestles a lot in east Tennessee whether it be NWA Smoky Mountain or a local indy. I live in Knoxville and have seen him advertised quite a bit around this area.

Re: Ring Of Honor

After last night , I feel that at this point the Bullet Club has jumped the shark, overstayed their welcome or what ever cliché you want to use. From the Bucks superkicking their own father to the cheesy camera guy saying " that's a $10,000 camera!" before getting superkicked, the whole angle fell f...

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

To think in this day and age that getting yourself over does't mean squat. I was under the impression that in entertainment getting crowd reactions and having others be invested in what you do was very valuable. Besides the Macho Man gimmick, which I don't remember at all, Sandow has gotten over wit...

Re: PROGRESS Thread: The Fake Taxi of Wrestling

I just started watching Progress from Chapter 13 on and I am really enjoying it so far. Should I go out of my way and watch Chapters 1 to 12 or am I at a good starting point? Any suggestions would be appreciated. check out Rob's thread on here, "how to progress through progress", super helpful with...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I find the BOSJ very interesting this year with the lack of Young Lions. The fact there is not that guaranteed loss makes thing a little harder to predict. Ospreay seems to be the favorite but I feel this lineup is stacked enough where you could have 5 or 6 potential winners.
