Re: Thatcher, Gulak, Busic...targeted to gay community?

It isn't deliberate at all We don't know that. So let me get this straight. You think the wrestlers working the style and the promoters putting on the matches are making a deliberate attempt to appeal to the niche of a niche of a niche to get the dollars of indie wrestling fans who also happen to b...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Pro-wrestling = selling, it's pretty damn simple. Everything about wrestling is selling, and I hate when people limit it to pretending to be injured. No, you also sell your character, your opponent, situations, adjustments, angles, etc. For example, just because Dolph Ziggler bumps around like a man...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Conor McGregor with his Kushida levels of no selling on Saturday. Did his whole camp on a torn MCL yet was throwing spin kicks all fight. Totally ruins a fight for me when a guy fights through pain. In case you never heard, pro-wrestling is not fighting. I don't understand the hate for Ishii/Makabe...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I honestly don't know how you could even value selling as a trait and not have an issue with the way Kushida worked down the stretch of the Omega match but this may just be an issue where what I identify as selling is so radically different from some people that we are talking about different thing...

Re: True Detective

I loved the episode and then the last 10 minutes happened, and blew me away! I thought nothing would top HArdhome this year, but daaayum, this was right up there. Frightening.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Dominion did have three bad matches (shitty 3-way, NEVER, Maria), but that's about it. Compared to IA, Okada/AJ was way better than Kota/AJ, Fale/Okada was slightly better than Nakamura/Goto, but IA undercard didn't have its Sakuraba/Shibata. IA's Dorada/Omega was slightly better than KUSH/Omega, bu...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Okada/Fale was way better than Ibushi/Styles.

And Nakamura/Okada at WK10 would be IV, not III, they faced off in G1 2012, that match was better than the last year's.

Susumu is easily the most underrated DG guy ever, their version of Kojima.

Re: Full 2015 G1 Schedule

Why is everyone freaking out? There's nothing official yet, and it looks they kept him off cards due to precaution.
