Re: WWE NXT 2018 (A-show schedule in OP)

as I'm probably going to say on STR, the weapons are now a substitute for brutality and heat. It's a distraction that could be solved with better build but that's not the WWE style I showed the person I went to the show with 87 (wargames I) and 92 and asked for an opinion. She's not a fan of blood b...

Re: Official WWE Thread

Charlotte's best match probably is on the level/slightly worse than Sasha's match with Becky (which are below the two Bayley matches). I'm going to say this was probably Charlotte's best personal performance if not match only because of the casting and style (I didn't think much of Ronda in the mat...

Re: VOW Flagship: Gabe Sapolsky Interview, Power Struggle & more!

Give me RAUL MENDOZA in longer singles matches - that dude fuckin' delivers every single time, he's absurdly talented but never gets shine. Give him a 205 live push, let him work NOAH, Progress, EVOLVE. RAUL MENDOZA vs. JORDAN DEVLIN? Thats nuts this. He's been a bright spot since the CWC and langu...

I'm curious how the 205 Live guys will do. Buddy Murphy, Mustafa Ali, Ced.
Mustafa Ali has had a sneaky great 2018.

Re: VOW Flagship: WWE Evolution, Changes in EVOLVE & Super Jr Tag Wrap-Up

There was always a "just whack someone! gimme da hits!" segment of fandom, and while I won't defend all of the dream eps, I do think some of that stuff worked. My ultimate "what if" is what direction things wouldve gone with Tony & Livia had Nancy Marchand not passed away. It a way it kind of worke...

Re: VOW Flagship: WWE Evolution, Changes in EVOLVE & Super Jr Tag Wrap-Up

The Sopranos is overrated due to its pretentiousness. Now we have to fight. Sorry it had to end this way. But you must die. You can have David Chase write it. It will be a 6 episode arc with 2 of them a dream sequence where I'm a travelling vacuum cleaner salesman looking for a good pizza joint, on...

Re: VOW Flagship: WWE Evolution, Changes in EVOLVE & Super Jr Tag Wrap-Up

The Sopranos is overrated due to its pretentiousness. Sons of Anarchy was good 1,2,5 but Kurt Sutter is the Paul E Dangerously of television. He's the weird idea guy you want in the writers room but you need another show runner (Shawn Ryan was a buffer for him on the Shield). Season 3 of SOA is drea...

Re: Best Non Wrestler

Regal spent most of the year mysteriously absent. in terms of sheer amount of product that's something in his favor, as opposed to Zelina Vega who started out special and then they killed her aura with week after week tranquilo spots and interference/becoming a player character. if that character h...

Re: Best Non Wrestler

Would love Stokely here.

I think if we've soured on Heyman, Regal deserves some love for this year. "Overwhelmed principal at a school for the entitled" is a good role for him

Re: WWE Money in the Bank 2018 - June 17, 2018

In a company that has 97% of the marketshare in this country and around the world, you'd figure at some point, they'd vanity book. But, we are now several years removed from anyone in the company outside of Triple H that gives a fuck about in-ring match quality or stories that make any sense whatso...

Re: VOW Flagship: BOSJ, MLW/ROH TV, Squirrel Meat & more!

Feeling personally attacked right now, how dare you. Seriously though, goat is not a taco meat. It needs tenderizing and slow cooking to breakdown the collagen and really bring out its flavor and texture. sounds a lot like venison, which I loathe, but my dad was an avid hunter and tried to make us ...
