  1. When I think of missed opportunities in wrestling, WWE denying us the chance to see The Rock sell the 619 is way up there.

  5. Hi! I'm Stefanie. I've been here in some form since 2000 or so, but I also have changed a lot since then. For example, I'm a trans woman, and I certainly wasn't presenting like that from the start. I actually was posting here recently as Sasha, which was the name I first chose when I started transitioning, but it didn't fit me anymore. I changed it to Stefanie back in November, and just got around to changing it here. The moral of the story is that I am lazy. I spend my days working on stats while videos of people speedrunning old video games plays in the background. I lead a thrilling life.

  7. Something someone pointed out a while ago made me think twice about the idea of PED users being pariahs: in the 60's/70's/80's all those guys were being fuelled by pills to the point that bowls of greenies in the clubhouse became a longtime gag. Can't it be argued that they were a performance enhancer as well because they were basically drugs that allowed players to play at a high level and get through a long season? I don't know if I fully agree with it but it really made me think and at least challenged my assumptions on the issue.

  8. His piledriver in the tag match looked sick tho. Haku for G1. Haku vs. Yano! Where da fuck is Fale btw? P.S. There was an awesome fan experiencing NJPW for the first time in the row ahead of me and he was just losing his shit for everything. Added so much to the night and it was like having a personal David Crockett.

  9. That sounds rad and I'm pissed I missed that but what an experience today was between eating lunch with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Legion of Honor museum and then this perfectly paced, spectacular card that over delivered big time. I don't have a tonne to say beyond witnessing NJPW wrestlers' spots live gave me a whole new level of appreciation for their athleticism. Some of the stuff you see the juniors pull off on tv and it's just a thing is not just a thing live. And the excess is unavoidable for both the Lee and main event matches because of what's come before. I also dug Lee an

  11. What a tidy little post-fight circus. In this day and age, two terrifying, smiling 40 year olds shouting at each other with that perfect mix of corny and legit really hit the spot.

  16. I actually do subscribe to this viewpoint. I completely believe that the main reason baseball players back then were doing coke and other amphetamines was to keep them getting out of bed, and keep going through the long-ass baseball season. I don't know whether it's "better" or "worse" than more recent PED use; but I completely think that they were using illegal drugs to gain a competitive edge.

  19. I have long thought that the rampant amphetamine use in baseball should be taken into account when talking about PEDs, but writers back then were so allegiant to the team that they would turn a blind eye to anything they saw so as not to besmirch the good name of the franchise and also fuck up the gravy train they had going with covering the club. A lot of these dudes that crucify guys on the gas have no issue with Mantle ripping through a handful of greenies to pick him up off the floor after a late night of boozing. If you take issue with one, you should probably be pissed about the oth

  20. I just got back. Man that was a great show. 95% Bullet Club shirts and 5% WWE shirts and those terrible overpriced jackets. Crowd was pretty on point for everything all night; reminded me of the NXT crowd in San Jose Mania weekend. Stage, ramp, lighting wasn't overly elaborate, but what a difference it added to this experience vs. when APW ran it twice previously. Floor and risers section were full. What would be called the upper deck (its not) was probably 50% full with the empty sections being right underneath NJPW's hard cam side. Speaking of which, it was interesting to see how they had th

  28. lol, the Canadian dollar sucks. I paid $120 to buy Final Fantasy VI back when it was called Final Fantasy III, when it was the hottest new shit on the SNES. Don't think I've crossed three digits to buy a game since. I also dropped another $20 on the Nintendo Power produced FF III guide, which is actually a pretty awesome collectable in hindsight and I'm happy to say I still have it in one piece.

  36. Now it makes me wonder if things would've turned out different materially if they had run Booker vs DDP the first WCW match. Booker was solid and Page was one of the smartest workers on the planet, I'm pretty sure they could've delivered a good main event caliber match.

  38. How many people I had talked with about the show, how I talked to them (in person, social media, etc), if they had seen the show or not, stuff like that. Then a bunch of general questions about what I liked about the show and my demographics and shit. But they seemed primarily interested in figuring out how strong the word of mouth is for GLOW. I love it, so of course, I was like, I TOLD 30 PEOPLE TO WATCH IT.

  39. Hey! Some of the old (old as in CLASSIC) gang are still around! I'll admit I pretty much stopped watching wrestling entirely after the Benoit incident, though got back into it a couple of years ago with a few PWG shows, and then getting back into DDT and New Japan. Now I obsess over Hiromu Takahashi as much as is probably appropriate. To elaborate slightly on my intro, I have a podcast called "Eric Roberts is the Fucking Man" (http://www.ericrobertsistheman.com), which is a tongue-in-cheek look at the life and work of actor Eric Roberts. We're about 75 episodes in, and the whole th

  40. I'm about 2/3 of the way through a biography of John Quincy Adams in "The American Presidents" series. It's an interesting read. My main takeaways from it are that JQA was a good diplomat, an honorable man, a mediocre president (due to his being such an honorable man), and a really shitty parent.

  41. I posted this the other day on my personal FB, after watching my youngest daughter (in Grade 5), at her music recital... School music recitals are set up a lot like indie Wrestling shows: First act was the Grade Twos on the ukuleles. These greenhorns aren’t the best but they delivered a solid opener and their fans are always vocal and supportive. Up next was one of the Grade Five classes doing Green Day’s “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams,” and it stole the show. Included two amazing solos that popped the crowd, huge. Definite MOTN. Up next was the gimmick match: the ol’ Black
