Re: AAA

Cage vs. Alberto in a hair match is the second match booked. Btw, when it comes to Rey-Rey, does anyone know where he stands with Commission? Is he "allowed" to have mask matches? Any truth to the rumor that AAA wants to put El Messias back under a mask and have him play the Mil Muertes character in...

Re: 2015 Wrestler of the Year tracker

But that's what Biggest Draw (or shit like that) is for, naming it Wrester of the Year takes away from the very essence of consuming it. Movies, music and theater industries sure as hell don't pick their best actors via box-office stats. Otherwise Robert Downey Jr. and Justin Bieber (?) would win ev...

Re: AAA

Your TripleMania main event is Rey Mysterio Jr. contra Myzteziz. No build, two tecnicos, just 30 days before the show. But still enough to sell out the arena.

Re: Damn you Samurai TV!

It's really sad that out of 10ish puroresu feds worth of watching, New Japan is the only one that is open minded and willing to penetrate into international markets and offer their content to the Western audiences. It's also kind of fucked up that TV corporations own the content, and not the feds th...

Re: Big Japan - The promotion of MEN

I don't really see how 300 views per video mostly coming from out of Japan hurt them financially, because it's not like we can watch it legally anyway.

Re: The JOSHI thread

I watched most of the matches from DylanZero's non-Stardom list (thanks again, btw), and yeah, they're all good at least, I especially dug Kimura vs. Satomura 20 min draw, it was such a nasty, gritty smackfest, loved it. Mizunami/Ohka ruled as well, first time watching both ladies.

Re: 2015 Wrestler of the Year tracker

I was done taking the WON route years ago, I only recognize one thing: Wrestler of the Year based on - actual wrestling, all the box-office stuff, carrying the company, who represented whom, etc. is secondary to me. It's fun to talk about it, but at the end of the day I watch wrestling for wrestling...

Re: True Detective

I like it for all the different reasons than S1, which is the entire point of anthologies, I guess.

Re: 2015 Wrestler of the Year tracker

Tony Cesaro really managed to sneak his way into my Top 10, he's had insane 2-3 weeks: two Cena goodies, three surly Harper tussles, and let's not forget that awesome Sin Cara match from months ago.

Re: King's Road - The All Japan Thread

Best part of the match is the fact Akebono turned things around by using hellish SLAPS! When's the last time we witnessed a match where SLAPS were a turning point?

Re: CMLL, the home of Cavernario

It's only July, and it's already impossible to catch Dragon Lee in the WOTY run.
