Re: TNA: It still exists, kind of!

TNA is apparently taping a lot during the week I will be down in Orlando for a professional conference and I was wondering if anyone knows how to get tickets for a taping/how to find the actual schedule for tapings. Unless they have moved out of Universal studios, I think you just need to pay for e...

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

People are going to focus the the reverse racism line and bash dave, but he's shredding Bix in that debate. It basically went like this: Bix - "Butch Reed couldn't be NWA champ because of racism" dave - "Promoters would push anyone who they felt could make them money." Bix - "But a lot of promoters...

Re: Potential WWE Network Changes & FloSports Speculation

I think the WWNLive site will remain for all past VOD content and streams not covered by the WWN/Flosports contract. All WWN content going forward will be on Floslam. The announcement states the deal with WWN INCLUDES the full archive dating back to 2003. "FloSlam will host archives from all WWNLiv...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

After last night I can say with a solid degree of certainty that right now, A.J. Styles is the best in the business at internalizing that he's "competing" and never looking like he's performing. There are no holes there.

Re: WWE 2016 Cuts

The way I see it with Cody is basically this: PRO: He's a guy who clearly wanted to wrestle a workratey style that would theoretically fit in among the "modern" indies. CON: He hasn't shown close to what Galloway showed before he left with the high end C-show matches and whatnot. I could see it goin...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

Outside of the end of that opening sequence and the bailing on submissions, yes, you're right, though. The biggest problem with the match all the way through was just how little they sold or even registered a lot of big spots. Obviously the whole thing with the death valley driver on the apron was ...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

Watched 'the match' again last night and the thing that truly amazes me (and makes me a tad suspicious of the amount of critics who actually watched the whole match) is that if you continuing watching literally moments after the big sequence-and past the end of the gif-the match kicks into a highly...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

Punk-Brock is an interesting example. I was at Barclays Center when they shot the angle on Raw for that match, and it was easily the most heated thing I've ever seen as a WWE show. That includes being in attendance at SummerSlam '98 and Survivor Series '11, which had incredibly raucous crowds. But w...

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

The story in this week's back issue that Dave recounted on WOR is some tremendous "Vince being Vince" stuff. I feel bad for Dave, but no sympathy for Phil Mushnick. F that guy. Yes, that was quite a story. I am not aware of why Phil Mushnick is so hated. Please enlighten me. In the wrestling world,...

Re: Modern wrestling, and what makes wrestling modern

Is this a real question or snark being tossed out as a receipt for the comments you get? Both, actually. Well, to answer the real question, modern wrestling is typified by what you see in currently existing promotions. You can make the case that the major NA promotions have a certain style, there i...
