Re: Get Ready for the Wednesday Night Wars!!!

I'm somewhat struggling to understand why people are so optimistic about NXT. Vince was supposed to cede control of Raw and Smackdown over to Heyman and Bischoff and that hasn't happened yet. He has allowed Triple H to control NXT up until now because it has been a Network-only project. But there's ...

Re: Chris Jericho has his AEW World Championship stolen

I knew they shouldn't have made Jericho the first champion! :lol

This does suck, and makes the company look a little bushleague. Hopefully they can retrieve it shortly or have a new one created before television starts. It's a nice belt too, so I wouldn't want them to start from scratch.

Re: King of the Ring 2019

I won't be watching, but if it were me I'd probably pick Andrade to win. He's a great talent, and has a gimmick that could get a lot out of this kind of achievement. Plus if he's feuding with Mysterio they could use this towards that. He could call himself Rey Andrade ('Rey' is Spanish for king). Th...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Eric Bischoff to run SmackDown, Paul Heyman to run Raw (in real life, not storyline)

I'm excited to hear wrestling fans credit Paul Heyman with every half decent episode of Raw, and then blame Vince when the show sucks again the following week.

Re: How long will Kofi's reign last?

I've not been watching their television for a long time, but it seems like they're now so lacking in stars that it's almost impossible for them to get anyone new over. Kofi spent so long as a midcarder that people don't really accept him as a main event guy. And it seems like there's nobody he can b...

Re: Will you watch AEW weekly?

I'll definitely watch it every week if the show is good. Even if it's not good at first, I'll give it a month to find its feet. I'm hoping that it'll give me a weekly wrestling show to watch again, as I haven't watched WWE weekly in a decade now. I gave up on the pay per views a couple of years ago,...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Eric Bischoff to run SmackDown, Paul Heyman to run Raw (in real life, not storyline)

I agree that NXT has lost something. The weekly show doesn't sound very interesting these days and while the Takeovers are still consistently good, they don't have the spark they once did. I used to be dragged in by the characters and emotional storylines, but nowadays it seems to be good wrestling ...

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Eric Bischoff to run SmackDown, Paul Heyman to run Raw (in real life, not storyline)

Vince finally responding to people who think he's out of touch by hiring two guys who ran wrestling companies that went out of business 20 years ago. Fuck, that's funny. I mean, Vince is the worst so if they have any real creative power, the show will have to get at least a little better. But they p...

Re: Goldberg vs. Undertaker?!

I don't like WWE in general, but their Saudi Arabian shows seem the bottom of the barrel for me. Both out of principle, and based on the cards themselves. Big clusterfucks and has-beens facing off? No thanks. WWE battle royales always suck, I can't imagine doubling the body count is going to make th...

Oh god, can you imagine the 25 minute crawl-fest he'd drag out of Ciampa?

Re: Double or Nothing

Yeah, Ted Dibiase seemed like exactly the kind of guy they would push to be fair. But he didn't seem the kind of guy who would make it. There are all sorts of guys that you know will be pushed as soon as Vince gets one look at them. But if they're not good enough to get over, they'll flop hard after...

Re: Double or Nothing

I remember when Rhodes was partnered with Ted Dibiase years ago, and everyone told me that Dibiase was going to be a major star one day and Cody was just a guy. Back in the days where there were plenty of people on WWE-Club, I think me and you were the only people who insisted that Cody was the one ...

Re: How would you book Triple H's retirement?

At this stage I'd just quietly take him off television. Can't think of a Wrestlemania match I'd be remotely interested to see him in.

Re: Jon Moxley headed to NJPW on June 5th

This is interesting. He doesn't seem like an ideal fit for New Japan, but I'm hopeful that he'll do well. Juice is probably a good person to pair him with, because he wrestles more of an American style that Moxley would be used to. Plus if Moxley doesn't end up working that well in New Japan, at lea...

Re: Double or Nothing

Also, I felt the same way about Jim Ross. I hated that they brought him in. He's a voice from a previous generation, and I wasn't enthusiastic about them relying on him now. Plus he sucked at doing commentary for New Japan. Kevin Kelly blows him away. I have to admit I was wrong after watching the s...

Re: Double or Nothing

It was a really good show. Worth going out of your way to see if you get a chance. One of the best American pay per views of the decade, I'd say. Particularly if you don't include Takeovers. There were a couple of teething problems with production, and the Battle Royale was a bit of a clusterfuck. B...

Anybody watching this tonight? Are people here following AEW at all? It seems like just what the American wrestling market needs at the moment. WWE product sounds just awful these days, and it would be nice if there was a weekly wrestling television show that was watchable. New Japan World tends to ...

Re: Ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It's not just that the film wasn't what I wanted to be. I wouldn't hate a film just for that. I don't consider this a disappointing film; I consider it a bad film. The tone of the airport scene didn't fit the content. That didn't matter to a lot of people because they just wanted the usual mindless ...
