Re: PWG 2015

I've been catching up on 2015 PWG, and now that I've watched every pre-BOLA show, I figured this was a good time to write an overlong PWG half year in review thing. All the shows on DVD, ranked from worst to first 5. DDT4 2015 An easy pick for the worst show. Just more "meh" matches than any PWG sho...

Re: Dragon Gate Love Fest, Bark of the Dawg, NJPW Destruction Tour & more!

I saw on twitter that you were saying you wanted to cut down on the length of the shows. I am someone who would be super disappointed if the show got shorter. When I see a podcast is long, I never go "Oh man, I have to listen to all of this at once", I go "Great, more of the thing I love". With VOW ...

Re: WWE Summerslam/Takeover: Brooklyn

It was interesting to see our Joe Lanza (Well, it was the VOW twitter account, so it could be Rich but I'm assuming it's Joe) saying that Samoa Joe looked slow and should've been in WWE in 2006. I agree, but I seem to recall mere weeks ago Joe on the podcast laying down a rant on people who said Joe...

Re: NJPW G1 Climax 25 (Discussion)

I fell behind after day two or three and only caught up in time to watch the last three shows live. Rather than throw out a lot of reviews I figured I'd just give some thoughts on every wrestler in the tournament. I apologize if this goes on way too long. Hiroshi Tanahashi: Going in we wondered if T...

Re: NJPW G1 Climax 25 (Discussion)

I feel like Nakamura/Tanahashi had a bit of padding in the front half of the match, while everything in AJ/Tanahashi felt like it fit. That said, I think the final few minutes of Nakamura/Tanahashi beat the final few minutes of AJ/Tanahashi, or any other match this year. They both sold exhaustion be...

Re: NJPW G1 Climax 25 (Discussion)

Yeah, Okada/Tanahashi again at the Dome isn't perhaps a sexy fresh matchup to a lot of people, but the way this year's Dome ended was more than just "Well, he lost, but hey, there will be other matches". New Japan went out of their way to sell it as a devastating defeat for Okada. I think this is go...

Re: NJPW G1 Climax 25 (Discussion)

AJ/Tanahashi might have been my match of the G1. They did a lot of stuff you can't do often (Countering some rarely countered signature moves, stealing each other's finishers, and is AJ the first person to kick out of the Styles Clash in New Japan? If so that's crazy.) but in doing all that stuff it...

Re: AAA

I really liked the main event. Rey had his working boots on and was taking bumps like it was...well, Triplemania.. Myzteziz has potential as a heel and it looks like they're going to try to make him the next Perro Jr. But the rest of the show, wow. This production was salting the earth bad. The audi...

Oh I know he has been on the show but I feel like there is plenty of fresh material to warrant a new episode.

Re: WWE Battleground, Kobe World, G1 Climax & more!

I've enjoyed watching the Dylan/Joe "Will they or won't they" Sam and Diane style sexual tension on twitter, but enough is enough. I feel like a lot or arguments are more likely to be solved in print, but I feel this is a rare case where both guys would be better served having a live conversation. B...
