Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

Sandow was the guy that Jeff on STR made me think of when he talked about lobbying for yourself, having an agent, saying "no" every once in a while and how that's something WWE doesn't want the guys to do but that's in many ways what you *need* to do to make yourself a commodity. Sandow was a model...

Dutch has an invaluable mind for the pro wrestling business, it's a real shame that there isn't a place for that in WWE.

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

So what's the reason for all these cuts? Anything besides having too many people on the main roster? Do they also need to do budget cutting? Is it also due to them likely continuing their signing spree? They haven't done anything like this in years. They seemed to settle down after Chris Masters an...

I like No Way Jose a lot, at least for now. I thought last nights match was much improved from the first. The man is entertaining.
Same. It's a fun gimmick and there's absolutely room for that on the roster. Appeals to more than just adult wrestling fans as well.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

They've been a really hot crowd as of late. Should be a great atmosphere for the BOSJ final.

Re: WWE NXT 2016

The Wichlinski firing is interesting to say the least. I wonder if they'll start moving towards more functional training. Kettlebells, clubs, isometrics, ropes, suspension devices, and so forth. They have a much lower incidence or injury and are much kinder on the body. I went that direction a few y...

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

As someone who enjoys seeing Ryback wrestle, I really hope he doesn't go to TNA.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

This might seem odd, but whilst reading his review I could also empathize with Joe's flaky (girl)friend experience, as incidentally enough I'm experiencing a similar situation right now with a super cute/hot girl that share's similar interests (she likes anime, wrestling and Japanese culture) but d...

Agree. Nagata doesn't want to be relegated as a prelim guy yet and can still go when he needs to. Let him run with the title for a bit and then put over one of the young guys huge at the end.

Excellent point

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Ended up watching the whole thing last night in one shot. Main event was very good. Ishii had essentially no chance of winning, but I was still really into the match, which speaks for the quality job both did. Liger and KUSHIDA had a solid **** match with the perfect finish and post-match. It's amaz...

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

You have to respect the Big Guy, he refused to break. Most people in that position just settle in and just collect the money.

I'm going to try and get at least half of Dontaku done tonight. 4.5 hours is a long one during the week
