Re: WWE NXT 2015

If Bliss wants to be in the public eye, she needs to grow thicker skin. It is that simple.

Re: Most Outstanding 2015

Styles only has one match in my top 10 of the year but easily has two dozen in my top 50. He's my pick at the moment.

WWE NXT 2015

Things don't look good for Zayn or Itami according to PWInsider: Sami Zayn was seen doing very light workouts in the ring at the WWE Performance Center several weeks ago, but has not been there in some time. Zayn has publicly said he would be out until early 2016, although we had originally heard h...

Re: WON Awards 15 - Promotion of the Year

I understand many people are against voting for an MMA promotion here, but I am not. UFC has had an all-time great year in terms of business, promoted a number huge and successful events, and also has a number of great fights to back up their case at Promotion of the Year. They're a much stronger ca...

Re: Let's bury the World Wrestling Federation....

Hour 3 dipped below 3 million viewers this week, and there was a major dip from Hour 1 to Hour 2. Looks like people wanted to see the bracket, saw Roman Reigns right away, and not knowing that Undertaker was on the show, decided to call it a night half an hour in. Over 600,000 viewers down from hou...

Re: Let's bury the World Wrestling Federation....

For me, the biggest takeaway from this tournament is the dire shape of the WWE roster. There aren't even 4 real legitimate World Heavyweight Championship contenders, much less 16. With all that talent, it really boggles the mind how they're in this bad a spot.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

As long as there are a couple solid matches to pick and choose from on each show, I'll be happy.

I was screaming like a madman at multiple points of the match. That doesn't happen often.

They have to pay off this Honma deal at the Dome. Just let Honmania run wild with the NEVER title.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Caught the second half of the show at work. Honma-Ishii was phenomenal. Wow. Loved the pull-apart brawl bewteen Okada and Tanahashi. That got me officially hyped for January. Main event was okay. I'm not a big fan of Karl, but he worked hard. AJ vs Nakamura at the Dome should really be something.

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

The weekly Wrestling Observer Newsletter and archive is worth the price of entry alone. I also really enjoy The Board, both for pro graps/MMA discussion and horsing around. As for the audio, Observer Radio w/Dave, Bryan's show with Tom Lawler, Nason's Punch-Out, Alan's show, and Wrestling Weekly are...

To be fair, the cameraman was basically giving the poor girl a colonoscopy. I'd be uncomfortable too.
