Yeah Noam Dar at 22 years old is really young by WWE male indie signee standards. Rich Swann was the recent youngest at 24 years old. But Noam has been wrestling on the actual indies since he was 15 and carries himself as a veteran. Personally reminds me a little bit of early to mid 90s Chris Candido.

If you don't mind hearing about Enzo & Cass, Ryback and KUSHIDA every week then maybe we can make it happen!

In regards to Petoit:

He is more commonly known as Tristan Archer. There are some good matches on YouTube you can watch vs the like of Tommy End, Chris Hero or Donovan Dijak. He's a guy that I can see winning a first round match.

The live or taped argument was pretty frustrating, especially when you start getting into the "no excuse" portion. It's a show with no official right fees, so you have to show some responsibility, especially when it's often talked about how NXT/PC loses money every year. Maybe a good compromise would be to have a two hour special every other week. But I can't blame them for following the NXT model with bulk tapings and a live special at the end of the season. I think by the end you reigned it in a bit to settle on "it sucks, but it's just the way it is", which I tend to more agree with.

The hype of MITB has been odd. MITB traditionally was the show directed at the internet. The successor from the One Night Stand PPV and things like CM Punk's post-pipebomb promo title win. WWE hasn't really done the right type of "signalling" to hardcore Wrestling fans and the top matches are better than the build given to them.

Oh yeah Kendrick is 37 btw. He's coming!:


lol

I love Enzo, Cass and Kushida! Let's make this happen.

I couldn't agree more about the doors on cages. I've thought it was dumb since I was 10 years old and started watching wrestling.

I'll be honest, far as the cruiserweight classic goes, I don't mind the matches not being live as long as the Finals are live. But that's only if the finals will in fact be Ibushi vs Sabre, where I won't know who's going to win. Any other final tips the hand and will have less juice to me for sure.

The Tama Tonga hot take was worth the price of admission alone.

So on the topic of the Cruiserweight Classic, I have not heard much on the discussion of these lesser known wrestlers trying to steal every match in this tournament. I have to got to think that the guys ,who are being told that they are losing in the first round, would go out there "balls to the wall" and would want to not only make an impression on WWE but reap the benefits that the "buzz" may give them to get bookings elsewhere.

On a side note, I randomly came across some really good tickets to this Thursday's taping and it will be my first time seeing guys Like Ibushi, Taijiri and Dorada live. To quote the one Bart Scott, "Can't wait!"

As I said in the past the weight class is a shoot:



They make you jump through all sorts of hoops at a WWE tryout anyway.

He's 4kg overweight. Also Michael Nakazawa is in Orlando.

WWE suddenly giving a shit about shoot weight classes when it means the biggest international superstar name either getting bumped out or starving himself to cut weight is just perfect.
