Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I don't kill Delirious for his booking that often because I think if booking was as easy as we think it is, every wrestling show would be booked well when in reality none of them all. But boy was jobbing Best Friends to BCB & Silas at Global Wars Chicago and then putting them in (and winning) a #1 c...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

Never understood why they revived the ASE "brand" for their big fall show and then let GBH fade into a glorified house show (or TV taping at least one year). Seems like it would have been better to just keep GBH as the big fall show.

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I cannot believe people are advocating for James Ellsworth in ROH, even in a joking manner. 100% agree. I get that being a wrestling fan in 2017 involves some level of ironic appreciation of the wrestlecrap parts of the business (apparently we like screwy finishes and run ins now as long as they ar...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

I doubt anyone in Sinclair worth anything watches much ROH, I mean I'm pretty sure Dalton Castle would be a heel if they did. I find it interesting that guys like Joey Ryan and Scorpio Sky are getting booked when they haven't wrestled in PWG for years. I might be the only one, but I miss the local f...

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

Oh. Well then I hope it gets 15+ too, I hate elimination matches that feel rushed. Although if they do a double countout spot with Taylor and Martinez after a few minutes of them hitting power moves and then let Silas and Kenny have ten minutes by themselves, that would be fine, I guess.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I don't disagree, but I'd like to see King retain over Taylor and build King / Silas into a proper fued before doing the switch.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

So I started thinking about which matches I'd like to see kept short so the other matches could have more time, and kind of realized how few matches on the card would benefit. I think Lethal / Scurll and the rumored BC / Flip's Army matches are the only ones I care to see get 15+ minutes. Everything...

Re: Official 'Sunshine State Excellence' TV Tapings Thread (11.12.17)

Maybe it's just me adding two and two and getting five, but Coast 2 Coast as Flip's partners would make sense. A jobber team as two thirds of your trio champs isn't a great look. But kayfabe wise, we know the BC will defend the belts against any trio. If Flip challenges them and recruits Coast 2 Coa...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

It would actually be a really good idea to do Champions versus All Stars during a NJPW tour considering how weak the undercard usually is for that show.

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

That reminds me, we didn't have a GBH this year, did we? That sucks, should have just made the TX triple shot a Glory By Honor weekend and skipped SotF or done it this weekend.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I think the main event has been well built, but based on spoilers from the last taping the rest of the card feels very random with throwaway matches all over. Only the Cody - Castle match and the Briscoes match feel like they have the appropriate build for the supposed "top show" of your calendar, a...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

So when is the SOTF winner supposed to get their title shot? Final Battle's main event is already confirmed with Dalton...Cody vs. Ibushi is pending at WK? Nashville tapings maybe? No real consistent history to it tbh, just sometime between Final Battle and SCOH probably. Fish got his at Manhattan ...

Re: The NJPW Thread

Politics of this match are fascinating. I imagine Jericho pushed for it more than Omega because he (Jericho) didn't want to wait the 1 or 2 years until Omega maybe signs and Jericho maybe isn't in a position for high profile singles matches anymore. But I haven't seen any Omega shoots, maybe he's a ...

Re: The Dalton Castle-Watch Thread

I mentioned in the Soaring Eagle thread that I think there is a chance Cody holds onto the belt until Danielson's contract status is resolved. I think the smart money is on Castle winning, but the push does feel very forced to me and I wonder how committed to this main event push that management is....

Re: Soaring Eagle Cup 2017 Official Thread

They are building Lethal up again now too, I wouldn't be surprised to see Lethal get the Final Battle shot with Cody ducking Castle until SCOH. I hope this doesn't happen. Lethal vs. Cody feels a little too played out this year to main event Final Battle, and SCOH is WAY too long to wait to give Da...

Re: The PWG Thread

They got Brian Cage to fill in Friday night, so at least Night One had seven matches. Night Two only had the six.

Eventful weekend, in addition to the changes to the title pictures, sounds like Walter and ZSJ had a great match last night on par with Lee / Dijak from BOLA.

Re: The PWG Thread

No Travis Banks this weekend, visa issues. Hoping they'll book a replacement, but based on how they've handled similar situations this year I'm not optimistic.

Re: Soaring Eagle Cup 2017 Official Thread

If they do have Castle beat Cody here though, I think i'd prefer it be in the finals, tbh. Put it in the main event, make it feel like a big deal.

Re: Soaring Eagle Cup 2017 Official Thread

I think Castle over Silas would be better. You can do Castle over Lethal in the semis without "wasting" Cody's loss on a made guy (Lethal or Daniels) or on the guy already getting the rub from winning the tournament (Castle). Would help keep (or regain, depending on how Global Wars goes) Silas' mome...
