Re: Beyond Wrestling

I'd highly recommended the entirety of the Greatest Rivals Round Robin show. Outside of AR Fox being his usual awful self and trying to drag the card down with an abysmal Brian Fury match it's top to bottom a very fun card with lots of good to great wrestling.

Re: WWE NXT 2015

There's no point bringing Athena out when they seemingly still don't have any plans for Billie and Peyton. She's not like a Nia who has a use by date or Asuka who is, well, Asuka. Plus, Athena has lots of issues that make her a very mediocre wrestler. She needs time behind the scenes at the PC to w...

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

Listen, Dave focuses on what he wants to focus on. We need to know who is dating who, who may possibly show up at an event, etc. There's no need for him to report on popular wrestling figures going on racist or Islamophobic rants. Popular wrestling figures telling stories about rape and passing it o...

Has me interested in checking out New Japan shows for a change. But that's what happens when CMLL decides to send Titan, Atlantis, Virus, Hechicero, Dragon Lee, Guerrero Maya Jr., Cavernario, etc. over.

He'd fill the Umaga or Tensai foreign menace role. :)

Re: December (Nominations)

Eh, from what I've read, seen, and heard PROGRESS fans are very "We are the best promotion, we do no wrong." Which makes for hot crowds, but not exactly honest crowds.

I'll see the match at some point I'm sure, and I'm hoping it ends up being great, I just find the divergent views interesting.

Re: December (Nominations)

You guys are the first I've heard (I don't count Greenfield whose opinion holds no weight with me) be high on the ZSJ/Ciampa match. Most of the feedback I've gotten is that it was terrible for the most part, with a hot end run. Best praise I've heard is that it was okay, but incredibly flawed. And ...

Re: Best Technical Wrestler

I guess that's where we differ because of all the guys you listed I often find myself the most bored by Sabre. The Scurll BoLA match is a great example, as after about five minutes of the needless exhibition grappling from them I was bored out of my mind.

Re: Best Technical Wrestler

Sabre's sequences do look cool. And whenever I've watched him they always have logical flow. I always pay attention so I can see exactly what he's going for. And there's showmanship to what he does. That's why he's the popular choice, and why he's the best. Because this is still pro wrestling, and ...

Re: Best Technical Wrestler

I've seen Gulak do some damn good stuff with very green guys this, making them look very good in the process. This is a narrative I wish more people would latch onto. I like Jonathan Gresham a lot, but the difference in what Gulak was able to get out of Matt Riddle versus what Gresham was able to g...

Re: Best Technical Wrestler

I really don't see the case for Sabre. I like him, but so much of his technical grappling is exhibition based. He does sequences that he thinks look cool, and they do, but they lack progression or logical flow to them, which for me is a major part of being a "technical" wrestler. Virus, Thatcher, an...

Re: Let's bury the World Wrestling Federation....

Technically what they are doing is illegal, but at the same time because of the whole independent contractor thing they'll probably be allowed to get away with it.

Re: Let's bury the World Wrestling Federation....

I can't think of any reason he'd be compared to Tanahashi besides "they are both pro wrestlers who some people dislike." There really is no comparison; Reigns is a really good to great pro wrestler while Tanahashi is still pretty darn awful. Whoa, how did the Observer board leak into this place Yes...
