Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

BOSJ looks great. There are few potential MOTY right there.

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

I've always been a fan of Ryback. For a guy with that build, he works way harder than he needs to. I'm sure the start/stop pushes have to get to those who take pride in their work and see no possible way to move up in their profession. Hopefully the standoff with the company leads to something good ...

Re: WWE Payback 2016

All that Bullet Club build leading to a brief, inconsequential run-in and a clean Reigns win felt...underwhelming. They were basically an afterthought. Agree, if you are going to do all that over booking, it should have an effect. Form a Bullet/Balor Club or at least have it determine the outcome o...

Re: UFC Thread 2015

This weekends Fight Night is a decent main card. Overeem v. Arlovski, Struve v. Bigfoot, Nelson v. Tumenov, and the return of Heather Jo Clark. 2PM timeslot is also a plus.

Re: WWE Payback 2016

The segment with Vince, Stephanie, and Shane was worst of the year material as well. Shockingly bad.

Re: WWE Payback 2016

Overall, the show was okay. Really happy that Enzo escaped what looked like could have been a terrible injury. The women's match was an absolute embarrassment with that booking and although AJ v. Roman was very good from a workrate perspective, it was killed by the McMahon's needing to be more impor...

That would be interesting since Brooklyn is already on the books for SummerSlam 2017.

Re: Wrestling Dontaku, WWE Payback 2016, Ospreay Signing & more!

Both my wife and I love airport terminals. Great place to get a tea or smoothie and do some people watching. Major airports like JFK actually have some decent food as well.

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

I recently resubscribed to the print Observer and am letting my digital lapse in two weeks. I just can't justify paying for the bulk of the audio at this point. Outside of Dave, Tom Lawlor, and Alan's shows, there is much better stuff being done on this site and over at the Torch. I'll always follow...

Feud of the Year

Aldo vs McGregor did almost $18,000,000 in gate sales during the voting period. All the build occurred during that timespan as well. The only thing that happened outside was the fight. Jones vs Cormier won last year, yet the fight didn't occur until January 2015. Same deal.

Re: 1990 and 1991 Watch List

Without really rolling my sleeves up, the list looks shockingly complete. I'll take a look at some notes I have later today and post if I see anything missing. When I was in my "consume everything" stage, tape trading was still the only way to get stuff not on TV. A steady supply of 4-gen All Japan ...

It's been working fine on my iOS devices and Apple TV. Is the issue just on Windows devices?

I have Harper as my #1. The guy is fantastic big man worker and has a great look. How they don't see that he's the star, not Bray Wyatt, it mind-boggling.
