Re: Project Rewatch - PWG: The Good Shit

I like the whole show to be honest. The lack of crowd interest hurts Davey vs Devitt and Aries vs Romero, but I thought the work in both was compelling enough to make up for it, and the Young Bucks & TJP vs Dynasty trios was a lot of fun with a great finish. The Aries match in particular I thought w...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I would guess Punk in NJPW would be a special attraction working a few matches a year, I don't think there is any chance of Punk working here again. I think Danielson is way more likely, as far as unlikely longshots go.

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

If it's WWE affiliated, isn't this tampering? I guess not, but it feels weird.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Ugh. Not to date myself, but the Embassy is kind of like the wrestling version of that NBC show Heroes. They both tried so long to recapture that original magic to such boring, stupid results.

Re: The NJPW Thread - G1 Special

So how does everyone here feel about Dave Meltzer stealing the Adamle Rating Scale and giving the Okada-Omega matches 6 and 6 and a quarter stars respectively? It's stupid. Especially him pretending a) it's always been this way because he vaguely mentioned it thirty years ago and b) the idea that t...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I don't think Delirious and Aries get along. Remember, Aries was only booked once (as an injury replacement no less) during the six months between leaving TNA and his NXT debut. If he isn't retiring, I bet he ends up back in TNA.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I was inclined to agree that NJPW USA and ROH should and could coexist well to each other's benefit, although the news in the SuperCard of Honor thread about NJPW looking to run WrestleMania weekend is ... not ideal. If they run head to head instead of running SuperCard as a joint show, that would b...

The six match shows are kind of annoying, wish Kyle was free to be a replacement again. KOR vs Keith Lee would be awesome.

Re: War Of The Worlds UK SuperThread

Not knowing the particulars, I would guess it comes down to the booking and opponents. I don't see why ZSJ would sign a contract giving EVOLVE control over his UK bookings, but he won't want to make EVOLVE look bad either. I wouldn't be terribly surprised to see ZSJ on these shows against Japanese o...

Re: The PWG Thread

So... is Pushing Forward Back the anniversary show? I feel like they should / would mention if it was, and I think it is usually in late July. But if they are announcing guys for BOLA, and this show has a pretty big main event ... maybe?

Re: ROH: A Catharsis by Big Red Machine

I agree with BRM. I think it's fine and interesting to fantasy book 2007 differently, but I don't think it would make a difference. You just can't burn that bright indefinitely. Summer of Punk, Kobashi weekend, the CZW invasion etc. There was a lifetime's worth of lightning in a bottle moments in a ...

Re: Official Death Before Dishonor (Las Vegas 9/22) Thread

It wouldn't be particularly interesting, but from a storyline standpoint Cody versus Frankie would make a lot of sense. Frankie picked up a big win over BC at BitW and wants to avenge Daniels's loss. Cody wants to humble Frankie for the fake BC turn after Page couldn't. That said, I'd like them to h...

Re: Official Death Before Dishonor (Las Vegas 9/22) Thread

So before the PPV I had assumed MCMG were next for the Bucks by default. But between the PPV and TV taping there has been nothing hinting at this yet.

I guess there is another TV taping before this show? The post BitW TV taping didn't seem to give many hints about this show.

Re: ROH: A Catharsis by Big Red Machine

Nah, Cornette was the shits. I can't comment on his weekly TV since I didn't watch it but his iPPV shows were only interesting because of Steen, who he featured against his (Cornette's; pronouns, pal) will. Death Before Dishonor 2012 was one of the worst "major" ROH shows ever and he was rightly rep...

Re: Will Cody's ROH Title reign be bottom of the barrel or better?

I expect something similar to Cole's second / third. I think in a lot of ways Cody is just "playing" Adam Cole in ROH, and while I think Cole has a higher ceiling, I think both have similar strengths and weaknesses and that Cole was not super motivated (probably justifiably) the last year or so, giv...

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...
