Re: VOW Flagship: Elimination Chamber, Kofi Kingston, Giant Baba Memorial, RevPro & more!

Tend to think Vince is so "youth culture obsessed" that he's fascinated by a guy who can carry the aura like Aleister Black whereas a guy who just goes to get some ink (for example, if he were to look at TJP's new ink and think he's trying to convey something he's not). I'm not positive we can rever...

Re: WWE NXT 2019 (A-show schedule in OP)

after the brawl last night, the concept of a Jessie Eleban vs. Jessamyn Duke match fascinates me

It's also possible (and this is something all of us do) is that we are trying to make it make sense in our head

Re: Monday/Thursday TV Reviews thread

she looked a bit nervous, focused, then "acted concerned" when Shayna came out

she's a bully (who's been turned face due to audience/program) who is facing a bigger bully

Re: VOW Flagship: The Wrestle Kingdom Preview

It was the smartest move Vince McMahon has ever made from a promotional standpoint. It breeds exactly what you're talking about here, plus it eventually led to THE BRAND and "WrestleMania" being the draw, which allows them a ton of slack when they muck up star creation. The downside, is we might be...

Rob came on. Mostly baseball, sandwiched by a bit of graps.

Re: VOW Flagship: WK13 Card, WWE TLC & ROH Final Battle

Where do we fall on RUTHLESS AGGRESSION Cena vs Kurt Angle in this category of matches? at the time Angle rarely lost. Part of the problem with this kind of match is the champ wrestles all the time, and every month on ppv, etc. Like if you had Brock come back, issue an open non-title challenge, and...

Re: VOW Flagship: WK13 Card, WWE TLC & ROH Final Battle

I'm talking once every 5 years with a kid you think might be "the guy." Interesting, this implies that you think you average promotion stumbles across a guy with bonafide potential, on average, every five years. You just spitballing numbers, or how did you come to that figure? It's pro wrestling, i...

Re: VOW Flagship: WK13 Card, WWE TLC & ROH Final Battle

Disagree with Lanza on "the babyface should never win" the young guy vs. top heel match. It made Barry Windham in 84 to get the sunset flip win on Harley Race when Dusty played the footage on tv. That and the sweet Camaro he got as a signing bonus (symbolized by car key, natch). I think in this day ...

Re: WWE TLC 2018 - December 16, 2018

Asuka in there to lose, obviously.

Question is whether they build her within the match. They could. But I wouldn't put much faith in it. 5 moves of doom Asuka is pretty fucking bland.

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

seems pretty obvious Khan went to dave, who gave them JR and Jericho.
