There really is no comparison; Reigns is a really good to great pro wrestler while Tanahashi is still pretty darn awful.

Re: Most Underrated

Kalisto is fine, we really don't need someone who botches a move every other minute being utilized more than he is already,

Don't worry, you can keep grading Tanahashi and most of New Japan on a curve, we won't mind.

Re: Evolve 2015

No, let Davey have his streak, he can sod off already. It's the end of the year, have we heard an annual retirement declaration yet? He has apparently been put on the full time hiring list for paramedics in Anchorage Alaska. So we might just see Davey wrestling polar bears in the future Doesn't mea...

Re: Evolve 2015

I've had people tell me the same thing about the wrestlers having the responsibility to engage the crowd. I agree with that to a point, but when a crowd refuses to react to anything I don't see what the wrestlers could do different. Gabe throws everything at the Ybor City crowd; Gargano doing a mill...

Re: Evolve 2015

I'm usually able to tune out the crowd and focus on the match, but I do agree that the Florida crowds are terrible. There's literally nothing they like either. They sit there quietly for brawls, high flying spotfests, #GrappleFuck, hybrid matches, strike exchange matches, stipulation matches; and an...

As far as I know, just a fan. She's been to pretty much all the big matches in their feud.

I hope he stays far, far away. Any promotion without him in it is a much better promotion.

Nominated Thatcher/Gargano, Gulak/Gargano, and Thatcher/Galloway. Three tremendous matches from probably the best weekend in EVOLVE's history.

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

You really watched all of that? Geez. You're making it sound so bad.... :? I understand the A shows and NXT, but really, if I even had inkling of getting burnt out, I'd drop Main Event and Superstars immediately. Hell, over the last few years, dropping Smackdown or at least watching selectively on ...

Re: NWA World Championship Wrestling on WWE Network

Squash matches are a forgotten art, and there's really no reason why there shouldn't be local enhancement talent used every week for a small number of squash matches. Would help keep the contracted wrestlers away from one another for longer periods of time, allow for more build to the big matches, a...

I'll be curious to see how everyone reacts to it apparently having been Charlotte's idea. lol Yeah....cause there's no chance that happened right?
