Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

Angelico and Jack Evans are still working for AAA, they're not going to be available if LU goes under.

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

Thinking it might work and committing to the business plan are two different things, and doing the latter with not even the slightest inkling that the promotions they were banking on were interested is what makes them idiots. PWG and all the indies are awesome, but they're really not relevant as far...

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Oh right, I did see that show.

But Yano was there and he didn't have it either. But I'll let that one slide.

But no US title belt at the first title defense in the US? That's weird.

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Why didn't Kenny Omega have the IWGP US Championship belt? And why didn't Minoru Suzuki have the NEVER Openweight Championship belt? Ospreay had the IWGP Jr Heavyweight Championship belt, Killer Elite Squad had the IWGP Heavyweight Tag team Championship belts. It bugs me when champions don't have be...

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

They "thought" they were going to get these promotions for no good reason at all. They "thought" they could get ROH and then "thought" that for some reason NJPW would forget about NJPW World and join them with CMLL and the big indies falling into line behind them. The money behind promotions like R...

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

8-10 weeks is a hell of a lot shorter than it looked like it might be. I've seen that same injury when I played high school football and the kid was out a year and a half.

Re: The WWE Thread

What could possibly be gained from that?

Just to make Brock a little stronger by burying the other champ so Reigns looks better when he beats Brock?

Because we know the match will be shit, and we know Jinder isn't winning.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

wut

Freebird Rules for the Six Man Titles?

So, like, is the whole Bullet Club now recognized as an ROH Six Man Champion? Or just the ones who defend the belts?

Leo Tonga and Chase Owens may have technically just won ROH gold.

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Britt Baker had a very good showing in that match. Nice to see some forward movement on Women of Honor at least.

Still need to get some of these ladies locked up to contracts, getting into meaningful feuds on TV, and competing for a championship.

Anyone else notice ROH started using pyro right after WWE stopped using it as a cost cutting measure?

Mark Briscoe dislocated his elbow two minutes into the opening match.

Bad times.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Hopefully that's when the new website goes live, too. Main wishlist: -As much of the early stuff as they can give us on demand -flat monthly fee that lets me watch every PPV, iPPV/VOD show, and TV episode. Preferably live on all but TV -higher bitrate videos. I don't know about you guys, but I don't...

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

I never said anything about wanting shoot headbutts or unprotected chair shots. But there's thin line between eliminating stupid and unnecessary risks/spots and watering down your product. There is inherent risk in wrestling and piledrivers are perfectly safe if delivered properly. Guys like Steen a...

Maybe even Davey Richards and Low Ki. Who knows. And it looks like Lucha Underground may be done. This from Meltzer: The owners are trying now to make a television deal away from El Rey. Essentially they are shopping the show around hoping that another station will pick it up and pay enough to produ...

Funny that he's "doubling down" on the rules after the Riddle apron piledriver spot.

But seriously, a wrestling promotion that doesn't allow piledrivers is not the wrestling promotion for me.

I wonder who is leaking these.

Re: The WWE Thread

Bullet Club worked WWE masterfully for free publicity. The invasion couldn't have gone any better. All Vince had to do was ignore it but the cease and desist and the firing of Jimmy Jacobs just validates everything Bullet Club is doing. People are going to be wearing these Cease and Desist and Unpro...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I find it really odd that ROH has a TV deal in Portugal and India but not Spain, France, or Germany. Or, more obviously, English speaking countries like the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, etc. At least they can use the website and Fite TV to watch the product. I'm hoping this Sin...
