Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Finals, KENTA/Shibata & WWE SummerSlam Review

Yes, Kashin got murked in pride but he'd still beat the common man's ass. Are we sure about that though? All he did was get his shit pushed in during any legitimate fight. I mean, I wouldn't have lasted nearly long enough with a Gracie for said Gracie to get hurt in the process of beating my ass. T...

Re: VOW Flagship: G1 Finals, KENTA/Shibata & WWE SummerSlam Review

I've been reading some of the archived Observers from the early 2000s and according to Dave Kashin's win over Ryan Gracie pretty much saved his wrestling career. When he got destroyed by Gracie in the first match he was dead in the water in NJPW because the fans stopped believing in his shooter gim...

Re: Wrestling Omakase #107: NJPW G1 Climax 29 Wrap-Up (Nights 15-19) w/ Sean & Andy

Have to agree with the bulk of your Naito argument. Like, I'm not super-crazy about LIJ like some are, but the constant swerving (as in direction, not angle) away from Naito has gotten sour-tasting. Ibushi hasn't really had that great of a storyline push against Okada to justify my storytelling sens...

Re: VOW Flagship: TripleMania, G1 Climax Final Stretch, SummerSlam Weekend

And KENTA can't really just beat the shit out of Ospreay and be a dick because Ospreay is contractually obligated to hit all of his spots in every single match (and also go over 20 minutes in a match that totally doesn't require it). I can't tell you how happy it makes me to hear someone else say t...

Totally off subject question here but... Kota Ibushi is clearly on the gas no? The guy looks like a late 00s WWE guy right now
I mean, he looks huge in his post-show interview.

Re: *NEW* ROH Thread. Keep it clean.

Cheap plug alert: I wrote a big long thing about ROH's current woes and how it handed away a lot of its market share to two competitors. Hope you'll check it out! https://www.voicesofwrestling.com/2019/08/07/please-take-our-market-share-the-ballad-of-ring-of-honor/ There's something that really com...

Re: VOW Flagship: AEW TNT Debut, NJPW/ROH, TripleMania & more!

I haven't listened back, but I don't think I "shit" on NOAH. I probably shit on AJPW, and I took a massive dump on BJW. I don't think he was necessarily referring to you, more a general context. You definitely did take massive dumps on AJPW and BJW, though the AJPW stuff was a lot more in-depth in ...

Re: VOW Flagship: AEW TNT Debut, NJPW/ROH, TripleMania & more!

I have a question for puro fans: does a company doing mediocre/poorly business wise affect your fandom? Do you dig your heels in and support more? Not for me. As a follow-along fan more than a live-events fan, there isn't much that could piss me off. Maybe if the promotions were more commercially a...

Re: VOW Flagship: Kobe World 2019, WWE vs. AEW & more!

There's so much I can say about the Circus stuff but honestly why bother at this point. I mean anyone with half a brain who knew what was going on had to know the writing on the wall. There was only one way it was gonna end. They were always drawing sellouts as you guys noted & their tickets were n...

Re: *NEW* ROH Thread. Keep it clean.

As someone who doesn't hate Jinder as much as most, I still think this is a pretty bad comparison. Shelley was legitimately great during the early MCMG era and was probably underutilized by ROH and then TNA in the latter part of the last decade. He was still pretty good in New Japan, but like the B...

Re: *NEW* ROH Thread. Keep it clean.

This might be a hot take, but I genuinely think Alex Shelly peaked as an attraction in MCMG. Time Splitters was great, but Kushida was the star of the team. Shelley in 2019 for ROH is like WWE resigning Jinder Mahal at the time of the brand split in 2017. An 'okay, sure' signing, but not a main even...

The Goto-Yano match is a 5 star special. Can't convince me otherwise.

Re: VOW Flagship: Fight for the Fallen, Extreme Rules, EVOLVE & more!

Joe & Rich, when's the next time you guys are doing a Flagship Q&A? I have a Dragon Gate / NJPW question I wanted to ask and maybe get a minute or two of your thoughts on. I bet if you sub the patreon, Joe will answer on a tv review. Would love to, if only to get all the AJPW reviews. But I'm in a ...
