  1. Give me your chop spots, your 90’s wrestler cosplay, Your huddled masses yearning to do moves of their heroes, The wretched refuse of your Indy roster. Send these, the sharpshooting, Four-Pillar-inspired to me, I lift my tentacles beside the Forbidden Door!

  3. Just here to echo all the praise for the Collision tag match. Wow. I guess the only thing I would add is that the match had a number of complicated spots that required all four guys to really hit the timing just right and they all nailed it. All it takes is for one guy to be a little late and you've got the three others standing there looking awkward. That never happened. Just such a smooth job from everyone while still making it all look like an epic struggle.

  4. I am finally watching Collision. Man, the tag match lives up to the hype. And then some. This is legit one of the best tag matches. Ever. Fantastic all around. Cash has always been great but man he has leveled up. Just a perfect performance throughout. Juice is also a revelation.

  7. Oh jeez, this was sad news to find out about after popping back in here for the first time in months. I still fondly remember Teddy Long's peanut head from the Smackdown Comix. HOLLA HOLLA Like others have said in here, it was nice to get a thanks or an encouraging comment from him on a post, and I remember when there was briefly a Euro promotions folder here, I started a thread posting updates from the Irish scene and he posted a reply saying "This right here is why I'm glad I created this folder". I never kept up with it, but that was very nice. He seemed like a great guy and I can't remember him ever getting into wars of words with other posters. He just focused on the fun aspects of wrestling. Condolences to those who knew him well.

  8. How I think of Honor Club: It's paying a $10 a month storage fee for hundreds of classic ROH show DVD's (and with easier access to boot). The new stuff is just a bonus.

  9. Also, a thing I loved about Gunther/Riddle was when they went on the floor. Gunther looked like an absolute beast with a chop and a bodyslam. He looked infinitely more vicious doing so than any number of cornballs doing things like Canadian Destroyers on the ring apron. Laying stuff in and knowing how to look dominant and Riddle selling like he is facing death itself >Spinning Super Spike Tiger Driver ‘83 Ring Apron spots.

  15. Sami is just an untouchable babyface now and forever. I love he is losing in singles because it just adds to generating sympathy in his Rocky Morton role in their tag team. KO’s doing the best work of an already sterling career and his angry man shtick equates so well to him becoming an all-time hot tag equalizer. I also love they are putting teams away with their singles moves — why wouldn’t that work? KO/Sami now and forever.

  23. I’m so fucking pumped for Justified. Nearly done with the rewatch with my wife so she’s ready too. The plot could be a turd covered in burnt hair and I wouldn’t give a shit. I think the only bummer will be not seeing Art or Tim or Rachel out probably not Duffy either. But, if they’re doing this for more than one season, it’s good that they don’t go full nostalgia right away.

  24. EDIT: I personally didn't care for the AI angle. Topical and relevant? Yes, most definitely. However, it just didn't feel like a Mission: Impossible plot to me and felt more in the realm of sci-fi. Secondly, the AI material was poorly established, and it felt derivative of both Terminator and Person of Interest. Morales seemed interesting, but they were clearly holding a lot back for Part 2. I enjoyed the movie a lot more on the second viewing. It's a great-looking movie. IMHO tremendously shot. Great action and stunts. Lorne Balfe's music is great. I think it could've been tightened up a lot more. It basically has like four prologues before the opening credits, and that's a lot. I kind of appreciate the DePalma film a lot more now, which is only 110 minutes or so. I think it's aged the best out of any of the films.

  28. I laugh when people say X quarterback isn't tough. Like, you literally can't make it to the NFL (at most positions but certainly) at quarterback without being tough. You just can't. Obviously, there's a range of toughness among quarterbacks but there's a baseline that's way higher than idiot fans give them credit for. It's like saying the guy who finishes 9th in the 100 at the Olympics isn't fast.

  31. I'm not sure if there's any purpose to the QTV/Acclaimed feud besides giving both groups something to do, but they really need to turn Harley Cameron face and have her joined the Acclaimed. She has way too much likable goofy energy and is a bit too talented to pull off the ironic pop star gimmick. Meanwhile, Taya is floundering as a face and could easily slide right in as the "real talent" QT and Johnny push Harley out for.

  33. So between the increased number of participants, the shorter match lengths, and the addition of the knockout stage like this year's BOSJ had, the G1 has been generating a lot of talk. Wrestlers discussing who should be in, and who should be out. Outside of kayfabe, I think it's really being done to hurry up and get the next generation some big match singles experience and exposure. It kind of seems like NJPW needs or wants to have guys like Narita, Tsuji, and Umino get to the point where they can start drawing and carry cards very much sooner rather than later. I think they got themselves on the path tonight. I'll co-sign all of the above as matches of the night. There were a few spots in Umino/Narita that looked like they didn't quite go as planned, but I think Umino especially was able to adapt on the fly remarkably quickly and salvage things. There are still some rough edges and questions I have about how both of them are presented (at least from my perspective, I feel like a lot of the issues that wrestlers like Tsuji have brought up with respect to their characters are valid), but as far as kicking off an Umino/Narita rivalry goes, they did a good job. Y'know what, I liked Gabe Kidd vs. Chase Owens, too. Not a classic, but it got off to a hot start, which I think was necessary (might just be my crappy old laptop speakers, but the crowd sounded really tepid to kick off the show). Nice brawl, a story was told, and it got me interested in what Gabe Kidd will get up to for the rest of the tournament. Plus, it set the stage for some prior-era BC vs. new-era BC stuff, which I know many are tired of...but, it seems like NJPW needs to do something with the old guard + House of Torture. Guess we'll see.

  40. What a really fun Raw. That main event was fantastic. There were a few near falls that I bit. Rhea is just firing at all cylinders. Is she the best all-around performer in the WWE right now? She did a fantastic Bobby Heenan tribute act tonight, making everything look important. I also loved the Viking Rules match. Great goofball fun.

  44. Speaking of IWRG - YES. OH YEAH. YUUUP. They just had their Festival De Las Mascaras (where they get old dudes to put their masks back on for one night) - I guess you gotta pay for the whole show but they uploaded the pre-show and it's got Los Mexa Boys (Noisy Boy & Spider Fly) vs. Los Lion Brothers (Leon Dorado & Mr. Leo) vs. MIKE & LEO, LOS TORTUGAS NINJAS~~~ and it's great! Two of the best young tag teams in Mexico mixing it up with two of lucha's most infamous, talented, copyright infringing goofballs. I thought there was a serious injury near the beginning (there wasn't) but nah, this is just straight up feelgood indie lucha nonsense with some real talent on display. Lord, I might not have the nerve to withstand seeing Spider Fly do his inside-to-outside Swanton ever again... https://www.youtube.com/live/XcXvB4UYZOM?feature=share&t=2004

  47. Sorry to derail this thread for a minute, but this past weekend, my son was at a neighbor's house playing Wii. He got too close to the kid who was playing and got hit hard in the eye with a controller. He came home crying and bleeding pretty good from a cut next to his eye (luckily not too close to it!). Once he settled down, I told him he did look pretty cool with the cut and blood and all. He asks me to let him see in a mirror. I hold him up, and he says, "Yeah, I look like Jon Moxley!"

  50. I finally got around to watching The Batman and overall I enjoyed it. Most of my issues with Batman in it can be explained away with him being new to the job still so I didn't let that bug me too much. Also would have liked it to be a little bit shorter but it didn't feel bloated. Easily my favorite batsuit out of all the movies, imposing but not bulky or rubbery. Pattinson did a great job too so I'm looking forward to a sequel. I just watched The Lighthouse this weekend too so I'm officially a fan of him as an actor.
