Re: Is Dolph Ziggler overrated?

Not sure I'd take much of anything Ziggler says on Twitter too seriously. Could be true, wouldn't take it as gospel. He's pretty much a guy I never saw as a world champion of any sort, and I think he's a pretty woeful talker, but his work, look and popularity should have meant that he should be push...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I find it really interesting the difference in crowd reaction for Elgin between the Japanese and American audiences. His delayed suplex gets ridiculous excitement from the Japanese crowds, his buckle bomb incites gasps, his closed fist spot likewise. American audiences seem fairly ambivalent to his ...

Re: Full 2015 G1 Schedule

I'd be shocked if they replaced Shibata with Omega. Can't imagine they give away Omega's first New Japan singles matches with Styles and Ibushi without adequate planning.

Re: Voices of Wrestling (July 2) - Call for Questions

What do you see happening with the Suzuki-gun stable in the future, and Minoru Suzuki himself? Disappointed not to see him in the G1, but understandable given that he's 47 years old and doing his bit for NOAH. Think he'll feature in a big match at Wrestle Kingdom? Also, potential future of Kyle O'Re...

Re: UFC Thread 2015

Mendes is a tough fight but I see McGregor beating him. Provided he wins, the Aldo injury will only have helped the PPV number for their title fight, a further legitimized McGregor with the added drama of the withdrawal and whatever stunt McGregor pulls after this fight should spike interest for a t...

Re: WWE The Beast: Live in Tokyo

The reaction to Balor should be interesting. Will the people in attendance be fans of WWE and NJPW? Do the fans cross over or will these be viewers of WWE primarily? I do hope they treat him like a star, should be a very memorable moment if so. The paint and entrance should ensure some reaction rega...

Re: 2015 Wrestler of the Year tracker

This is a tough conversation to have before the G1.. Okada, Styles, Tanahashi, Nakamura and Ibushi all in with a shot of completely shifting the momentum over the course of the next month and a half. To this point it's Styles, Ibushi and Strong above all others from an in-ring perspective with Owens...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Briscoes vs RPG Vice is definitely one to look forward to. Lethal vs Strong will probably be a MOTYC. Pretty happy with that card.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Apparently 10'600 or so tickets sold so far for Dominion. Naito teaming with Honma for a tag on Sunday, does it seem likely that we'll see some Naito antics here? If there's anybody you want to turn on to get heat from these crowds it's surely Honma? Or will his attitude drag on for a few months bef...
