Re: Wrestling Omakase #63: Fantasy Draft Vol. 5 (Lucha)

I think the correct answer is Andy, but he needs to switch Taurus and Wotan. Mike would draw the best but the three way trios is a DQ. Ricky Marvin vs Zeuxis is actually happening but I don't think I've put up the poster yet. The CMLL trios is too boring. My memories of Myzteziz vs Rey Misterio make...

Re: PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla)

One of my big takeaways from being there is Bandido in PWG is a different deal than elsewhere. He's great where ever he goes, but he's the rising pure babyface just about to break thru in PWG. It's a little weird that concept is a novelty thing, that used to be the idea everywhere. It sticks positiv...

Re: 205 Live Thread

so, to summarize * the 205 GM is now also a manager of a lower midcard heel tag team * the newest addition to the roster might also be doubling a manager? * whatever's happening with Gulak showing up in the heel group at Raw (yes, I know RAW is the 205 brand but the 205s were previously separated fr...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

Am I remembering correctly that - after Kenny tried to recruit Jay White to the Bullet Club and that went badly - that there was a press room conversation between Scrull and Tama Tonga where Tama suggested the problem was the wrong person asked White? That seemed like a seed of Tama vs Omega but may...

Re: Strong Style Spirit - New Japan catch all thread

I'm sure they'll find a way to make holding the event cheaper, but flying over rookies to work shows is a bit of a vanity move. Ideas like running outside of California have been dismissed as costing too much, but it's hard to believe the primary issue is the expenses if these shows got a green ligh...

Re: WrestleMania 35 Weekend (NYC Metro Area)

Koff sure seemed to be suggesting legal action was coming in that interview with PW Insider. If nothing was set, he could still be throwing the idea of ROH @ MSG out there like a carrot on a stick they could reach later on or downplaying it happening at all as to not look like they got something tak...

Re: WWE NXT 2018 (A-show schedule in OP)

I think the Baszler style of match can eventually get over if they give it a long enough run. I just don't know if they'll have the patience to stick with it. The Kai/Belair match that'll air next week got a lot more over doing more of the NXT fans have been educated to expect out of matches.

Re: All In in Chicago - Labor Day Weekend (Travel Thread)

I know that's what people are reading out of those lines. And they could be right. But I read that.. As part of Sinclair's plans to grow Ring of Honor and take advantage of a "very passionate fanbase," Ripley said the promotion's events are starting to take place at large venues. A show set to take ...

Once you're told Ishimori is playing Bullet Club AJ Styles, it's tough to unsee it.

Re: All In: September 1

In retrospect, the question shouldn't be "is ROH secretly helping fund All In?" but really "why didn't ROH more strongly attach themselves to this project and make it ROH All In?" The bet was for a ROH show after all. Any discussion about this show drifts towards resentments towards the current ROH ...

Re: All In: September 1

I wonder (though clearly not enough to check) if those All In hotel deals came with tickets, or if there's a bunch of people who rooms in the Chicago suburbs but no way to actually go to the event.

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

My understanding had been that it wasn't "WON/'F4W" doing these group ticket sales deals, but people on their message board doing the organizing and purchasing. It'd sometimes be someone who considered themselves close to Dave & Bryan, like Ed in San Antonio, and the people working for the site were...

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

They're selling tickets to an event they plan on covering. They may not make a cent off them. They may be doing it simply to help out people who would want to sit together do just that - I'd bet every person who is buying an All In ticket thru them would've bought a ticket on their own if this wasn'...

Re: WrestleMania 34 Weekend (New Orleans, LA)

That Impact/LU is going to be a sleeper card. Airing for free on Twitch means it's going to be the most viewed non-WWE show of the week and the matches look good. Rich Swann missing Saturday's The Crash show probably means Swann/Fenix/Flamita has returned to being Fenix/Flamita but they haven't said...
