Was that the Suzuki Gun show? I remember that being fun.

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Rib injuries are really tough to deal with. Even if there's not a break, a costal injury to the cartilage makes it hard to do pretty much anything. I had one of those in 2014 and it took weeks before it felt right while doing any sort of grappling.

Re: Best of the Super Juniors 2016 Pick'Em

This looks like a lot of fun. I'll work on the ballot this weekend.

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Re: Returning stars I really hope that WWE has the discipline to quickly not burn through a bunch of "dream matches" on Raw and Smackdown. For example, AJ Styles doing a series of random TV matches with Randy Orton, John Cena, and Seth Rollins would be such a waste. 5+ hours of weekly TV makes it to...

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Enjoyed this week's show.
American Alpha doing the Steiner Brothers throwback gimmick was fun.
Finn's return
Nakamura killing A-Ry in his final WWE mach

Rachel Ellering was very green, but there is definitely something there. All she needs is more time in the ring and in the gym.

Re: WWE NXT 2016

Never know the policy the here about spoilers. But just a note here Rachael Ellering shows up as a jobber. At the time it was taped I am not sure if she had 10 public matches yet. Not saying her name didn't help but she got the gig as she's incredibly nice and she has this early Rock or Kurt Angle ...

Re: How you got into Puroresu?

I started tape trading though newsletters and the internet when I was barely 13. We got ECW TV where I grew up, which were always a hot item. The first Japan tape that I ever received was Super J Cup 94. From there, I dove in and curated a respectable set of Japan tapes, mainly All Japan, New Japan,...

Re: Official WWE Thread: Post-WrestleMania 32

Honestly hoping that this is the bottom for Lepan. He comes across as a guy who does care deeply for his family. Substance addiction/abuse is a terrible thing.

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

The Brawler release is odd. He's been there pretty much non-stop since the early 80s. Another wrestling guy gone.

Hopefully Rose can get his life in order. He doesn't look well at all in that booking photo.

Re: WWE NXT 2016

I think the booking of Crews is fine so far. He's been touring on with the main roster for just under a month now and hasn't lost a singles match on TV. I'd much rather the guy stack up wins on Main Event and Superstars for a couple months while learning the road v. getting stuck in a 50/50 feud on ...

To be fair, the plant gimmick works live. Good heat at the live shows i've seen her on.

Grammarian wrote:In that case, I do think I'd continue the Emma pairing. Have her work some tag matches with Emma, appear in Emma's corner as her second. Occasionally work singles matches. Do promos with Emma backstage.

I'm in favor of this. They were a good pair in NXT. Stick with what works.
