Re: The PWG Thread

Also, I have very conflicted feelings about Chucky beating ZSJ. ZSJ has been champion for over a year, and Chucky is super over and "deserves" it. But in kayfabe, I have a hard time buying Chuck at that level. Kind of hoping they do something creative with the finish if they have Chuck win.

Re: The PWG Thread

I think the Riddle controversy is just a case of him being really overzealous when it comes to bookings. He wants to work everywhere, and there's nothing wrong with that, but it seems like he takes bookings just for the sake of taking bookings, without thinking about whether it conflicts with somet...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

That's a pretty wide range imo, BitW last year was pretty terrible. And I thought the 14th AS was really good. ASE seems like a reasonable measuring stick though. I don't think anything will be as good as ladder war, but I have high hopes (and expectations) for the TV and tag title matches. Hopefull...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

So who do we think wins the TV title match? I think it's fair to say Marty could use it more (unless Cody is losing and Marty can go after CD), but it seems unlikely NJPW would be okay with Kushida losing given his current push.

Re: ROH: A Catharsis by Big Red Machine

I know a lot of people knocked it at the time, but with everything that's happened since, I think 2007 and 2008 are closer to peak ROH than it is to the current product. Late 2008 and early 2009 was arguably worse than any stretch of shows SBG has done (excluding Final Battle 08, one of the best ROH...

Re: ROH: A Catharsis by Big Red Machine

SBG really lucked out by the incredible group of talent that came in late 2010 and early 2011 right before their purchase (Cole, O'Reilly, Ciampa and Elgin). Then they lucked out that NJPW wanted to expand their presence, giving ROH regular access to AJ, the Bucks, etc. For the first couple years th...

Re: Project Rewatch - PWG: The Good Shit

2008 emo heel Perkins is my favorite version of him, it will be interesting to read if it holds up well but I remember him having a great ASW match with Generico and a great BOLA match with Danielson that were actually entertaining and had heat.

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

I'm not a big Castle fan, since it feels like we've been waiting years for a breakout match. But there's no disputing he is over so it's hard to be critical of the move. Hopefully he gets something interesting to do and can step up his in ring performances.

Re: ROH: A Catharsis by Big Red Machine

I don't think any long term fan could blame another long term fan for "tapping out". Someone once posted something that I really agreed with that helps me enjoy the current product for what it is, which is that everything post BitW 2011 is essentially "bonus" ROH that we wouldn't have gotten otherwi...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

The last Briscoe heel turn was pointless because no one wants to boo them. They were faces again in less than a year last time. Maybe it was less than six months. And that was six years ago! Can't imagine it working now with so few authentic "ROH" guys left.

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

Jay Briscoe and Dalton Castle trash talking on the ROH Twitter tonight, Castle & the Boys getting another shot at the six man belts? I'd prefer a Jay - Dalton singles match by a million percent tbh.

Re: Official WINDY CITY EXCELLENCE (TV Tapings) thread

Anyone seen a full list of results? 411 has the first episode and part of the second, which look good but doesn't really add much storyline wise other than Woods throwing some shade at Kushida.

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

Maybe it felt bigger, but War of the World's wasn't as well reviewed as the four PPV shows before it. Frankly, I think most people thought it was too busy. I think a smaller card (7 matches is ideal, but we know they'll do 8) with 3 or 4 feature matches getting 15 to 20 minutes to build could be a b...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

Last year's show was really bad. The rushed / forced / short Lethal - Briscoes match, the random BC trios match, the random KOR exhibition match, no special attractions, the best match was probably the frickin Corino - Whitmer match with the stupid finish. I'll hold out hope for this show. I'm not e...

Re: Official Gateway To Gold (Collinsville 6/4/17) Thread

Isn't Dave Crist injured? I know he's missed the last two AAW shows and isn't booked for the next PWG show (while his brother is) which is after this ROH show he is supposedly doing. Any chance it is Jake Crist and Sami Callahan? Seems unlikely, but we are living in a world now where Chucky T has wr...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

the power dynamic and / or amount of interaction between Cody and Marty and the Bucks could be real interesting. I think that's what a lot of us were hoping would eventually happen when Cole joined Bullet Club but it never materialized, so I don't have much hope on this one. I mean, that has more t...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

just a question...are you ready for a potential roh world champion cody rhodes As a glass half full optimist, I think that a) if the reign sucks, it certainly won't be due to a lack of effort on Cody's part, b) there is pretty much nothing but fresh matches to book him in and c) the power dynamic a...

Re: War Of The Worlds 2017 SuperThread

Thinking about it more, I think I want to see Scurll drop the TV title to Jay White in a triple threat or four-way where he isn't pinned and then go after Daniels for BitW. Not sure who is or isn't available, but ideally my top half of the card is Daniels v Scurll for the title, Cody v Lethal FWH, W...
