Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Went back and forth on posting this. I foreshadowed all by WWE talent issues a couple of weeks before the Ryback, Cody etc issues came to ahead. But the issues with the Diva division is way more acute as there's way less spots and time on TV. WWE in how they are treating Charlotte is creating a lot...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

I can't wait for the match when a 40-year-old executive and mother of three is able to dominate a champion professional athlete at their own game.

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

I'm halfway through the Rollins 24 show and I think I've finally figured out why I've never been a fan of his even during his Tyler Black days. He's basically a backyard wrestler. I know he's gone on and got the proper training but to me, I've always seen him as a guy do moves like he watched a tap...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

I really think THE END just refers to Joe/Balor, they've even both used the phrase in promos. I think it's all a coincidence. All of this could lead to the formation of a TRUE developmental again, like rovert talked about a year ago. Developmental needs a developmental territory. But I don't see th...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

AJ Style's follow up promo will be very key. He needs to explain why The Bullet Club didn't swerve Reigns at the last two PPVs and Kevin Owens last week etc. Don't get your hopes up He can just say he finally saw the light. But sounds kinda dumb given how long they dragged it out. Whether her expla...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Meltzer: Ticketron and the WWE's web site have pulled the planned SummerSlam weekend NXT show. Now, decisions and schedule changes happen all the time. If you remember, last year's show in Brooklyn was NXT's biggest success in history drawing a legit sellout and had the Bayley vs. Sasha Banks match...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

There are plenty of wrestling things that I don't get or plain don't like. Most of those things are very successful regardless of my personal tastes . Somebody not digging what the Young Bucks or Ricochet do is one thing, but not recognizing that they're some of the most successful and lucrative ind...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Goldberg coming in and killing Heath Slater in 30 seconds at SummerSlam would be fun. A 10-12 minute slog would be death.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

As long as both are presented like a big deal, I like having a separate division for the Junior and Heavyweight wrestlers. Junior's should be allowed to move up on occasion, but a 175lb Junior should rarely beat a 235lb Heavyweight. When it does happen, the intended reaction should be something alon...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

From a sheer athletic standpoint, Ricochet v. Ospreay was one of the most impressive matches i've ever seen. The strong reaction on Twitter from both sides has been really fascinating to watch unfold. Like pretty much every 'battle' on social media, the reasonable people are always somewhere in the ...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/fighting/article79539912.html A return to Miami would be welcome. The renovations at the stadium included a partial roof that shades 90% of the seats and a number of other creature comforts. I'm also going through serious Carlos & Pepe's withdrawal since moving bac...

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

One area where both Dave and Bryan have a rather large blindspot is in reporting things in context of a broader picture. Specifically, given the last year of declining ratings, a regular reader of the site would assume WWE was of a diminished value to USA and might be in trouble. The changes to Sma...
