Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

The Smackdown booking is going to have to be on-point for this to succeed. They got the total B show treatment last night.

Re: F4W/Observer-Is it still worth paying for?

If Dave is unavailable to do an audio on Tuesday nights, that's understandable. What doesn't make sense is that the other people with a financial stake in the website get to use that as an excuse to shrug off doing post-draft coverage as well. From what I understand, Bryan didn't even watch Smackdow...

Money well spent. I was too jacked up to take a cab back to our hotel after the show, so I made my wife walk 3 miles across Rosemont to our hotel at 10PM. Thankfully, she understood.

Re: WWE NXT 2016

I don't think I've seen anyone mention this yet, but NXT Takeover in Brooklyn looks to be sold out. Already got my tickets, but if you search through ticketmaster for even a single one nothing comes up. Last year's took 3 weeks to sell out, this took about 2 days of pre sale and 1 day of official g...

Re: Best of the Super Juniors, NJPW Dominion, Slammiversary & more!

Great show, although I admittedly skipped the Slammiversery preview. Ospreay and Gajin talk at the start was spot-on. I know this is a pro wrestling podcast/site, but you forgot to mention UFC in the Promotion of the Year award debate. If I had to bet, New Japan wins and UFC is second. UFC should wi...

Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

A scenario I thought of earlier is if Ospreay beats KUSHIDA at Dominion and KUSHIDA wants to be in the G1, you could always just move him up. He beat Omega for the junior heavyweight title, so he kind of has a built in reasoning for deserving a title shot. I'm thinking/hoping this is the case if Os...

Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

You won't hear us disagree about the Jr. Tag 4-Way shitshow but I think the Jr HW, IWGP HW and NEVER all have really cool stories going in. Not sure what to think of the NEVER angle. I love Nagata, but I'm not sure he's long for the title. Going back to Shibata this soon doesn't get me excited at a...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Hard to complain because the show will be great in-ring, but the booking of Dominion is kind of a letdown. I like the IWGP HW and Jr HW matches, but the rest i'm tepid on. IWGP Jr Tag 4-way is just the laziest booking possible.

2016 Lou Thesz/Ric Flair Award (Wrestler of the Year)

AJ Styles or KUSHIDA. Could make a very strong argument for either
