VOW - G1, SummerSlam build, listener questions

Post by Joe Lanza » Sat Aug 06, 2016 8:05 pm

Better late than never. VOW returns with a break down of the G1 Climax, before Joe gushes over the fantastic build to a SummerSlam show that looks like a Show of the Year on paper. After that, it’s over 100 minutes of listener questions answered, as Joe gives hot takes on everything from Hideo Itami, short IWGP title reigns, bad first dates, obsessive sub tweeters, Lucy Liu, the brand split, and his troubles with Pokemon Go.

Man, fuck that. I enjoyed that show two weeks ago and I didn't think you were noticeably out of sorts.

That being said, I'm glad you've gotten re energized a bit, Joe. Like to think I speak for everyone on VOW that IRL supersedes everything and we're all happy that you got what you needed, if only briefly.

Also, does Mack Weldin (?) deliver to the Middle East?

Joe trolling the SCI made my eyes bug out.

Also, how could you slander Lucy Liu?

She's 47 and looks like this. 47!

Haven't listened yet, but thrilled to here the answer to my subtweet question. Let me tell you I love this podcast. I love Rich playing the straight man trying to reel Joe in, and I fucking love Joe's rants. I crack up every time. That emotion you deliver these podcasts with is unmatched, Joe. This is easily my favorite podcast because of it. Please don't stop doing that. Your emotion keeps the fan in me from dying.

I didn't think that pod two weeks ago was noticeably bad, and I'm still all in on broken Matt Hardy.

Love that you put over the Summerslam build, I've really enjoyed it as well.

Haven't finished listening yet but wanted to drop a few comments already.

I think we are all our worst critic (which is to say I didn't think any pods were bad, but I understand you feeling that way, Joe), and sometimes it's more than healthy to admit you're just not feeling something you normally love, and dip out of it for a moment. I go through periods like that with pretty much everything I'm passionate about. Right now when I'm not watching the G1 on my free time, I'm reading a ton of books. Last year I could barely finish a novel, enthusiasm just kind of comes and goes. It's better to be enthusiastic and take a break when you're not, than keep watching and be unimpressed or bored because you're heart's just not in it, because you're not in the mood to fully appreciate it.

I'm so happy Marufuji is having a hell of a tournament. Disagree completely on Tenzan, but I think we're just different in that regard: I'd rather watch a 2½ star match and root for a guy to win with all my energy, than a 3½ star match and not be all that invested. I was on the edge of my seat even in the slowest Tenzan vs Fale slog. I just loved that story.

Off-topic tangent, but do you know where I can start following AJPW regularly (start of the year and going)? I wanna start getting into that company more so that by the time Suwama vs. Miyahara for the Triple Crown happens I can consider myself caught up.

And then maybe see about producing articles/reviews somewhere....

Log out of google and try again.

Did you not know about this? This has every puro show that has aired in Japan this year, plus more.
