  1. So, Jake Hager's never going back to WWE: I mean, he probably neither wanted to go back, nor would have been wanted back by them anyway. But it's always nice to see someone burning their bridge.

  3. Chono was the face of Suntory's Strong Zero national ad campaign. He showed up at a wrestling event and was giving out cans for free. The cans had Chono's face on them. I was freaking out: "It's Chono! It's Chono!" but the people I was with had basically no idea who he was. They were Osaka Pro fans specifically, rather than wrestling fans generally. So, because I got so excited, my friends gave me their cans, then it got out of hand and even strangers were giving me theirs, then somebody (probably Kenji and Kae) went over to Chono and asked if I could have the cans that were left o

  6. If it were me, there is no doubt in my mind that I would have 100% gotten up limping and holding my leg like I was actually hurt. Like when someone makes a wild throw and then rubs their hand like the ball was slippery but it was really just a bad throw. Then every few plays I'd do that wresting sell where I'd ball up my fist and pound on my leg to show everyone I was trying to will it into working right.

  9. Silver is going to get monster pops when crowds come back (for real). It’s amazing what can happen when a guy unexpectedly gets himself over...and then the booking let’s him run with it, instead of fighting against it.

  15. this is true. I've known Wardlow since his first pro match. He is an awesome guy outside of wrestling, he just came back to his home promotion 2 weeks ago to work a show for free. You won't find many guys better than Wardlow. He was in a viral video working Jack Pollock in a cage match where they did a spot and both went through the ring. Outside of that and the appearance on Undercover Boss he had been Pittsburgh's best kept secret. Justin Labar was his manager for quite awhile. Interestingly Justin had worked on Chairshot Reality with Brit and both are now with AEW. Couldnt be ha

  18. Today I learned that Greg Valentine and Brian Knobbs are related. But despite greatly resembling one another, they're only Brothers in-law. Also JBL is Blackjack Lanza's nephew(?). Also I'm reading Roddy Piper's book (well technically two of his children wrote it, because Roddy died while researching his early childhood). Anyone who attended Starrcade '83 as a fan saw the Dog Collars and Chain exhibited in the lobby before the show started, because Crockett wanted people to know it wasn't gimmicked. But then Piper and Valentine did the match again, around the circuit for the next week.

  19. What a time to be alive when AEW has Cage, Wardlow, Luchasaurus and (I appreciate they're older) Lee and Archer, while NXT's big stars the past 3 years have been Cole, Gargano and Ciampa. Like, if Vince ever watched Dynamite surely he'd fire HHH on the spot.

  25. There have been lots of interesting comments so far, so I'll keep it brief: -I'm glad Ibushi won. They should go all the way with him. Not saying they will, but I can't think of any reason not to at this point. -In the end, sad to say, I'm just completely indifferent to Sanada. That's not a good thing. Some guys in wrestling just never reach that next gear. I keep waiting for Sanada to get there. Let me put it another way: a guy with such a weakly applied finisher who still hasn't realized he should just try something else at this stage doesn't quite fill me with confidenc

  26. This isn't a gif so I won't post it in that thread. Is this the new Kaz/Raven splat spot to capture our morbid fascination? "Is he... Brother." perfect.

  27. The real question is: Is SANADA vs Ibushi the most handsome pro wrestling match since Cody vs Ibushi at WK 12? I think it might be!

  30. It's tough to do a good invation angle nowadays. Not that WWE could under any circumstances. People forget that the initial appeal of the nWo was that fans really bought the idea (at least at first) that it was WWF actually invading.

  31. I think the problem with the stereotypes in GLOW were that they were done to make a point about how racist the wrestling industry can be, but then didn't spend the time to properly dispel the stereotypes. The show was basically Allison Brie and Betty Gilpin, the white women who were playing the least offensive stereotypes, getting 75% of the screen time. The rest of the cast, who were put into the most offensive characters, had to share the remaining 25% of the screen time. So instead of playing strong women dispelling stereotypes, most of their time was spent playing the stereotypes. As a

  33. Another guy you should all put eyes on is a wrestler by the name of Bulk Nasty. The guy had a classic with Wardlow and Wardlow is pushing to get him into AEW. The guy is ridiculously strong and is over huge. Wardlow was asked to pick his Dark opponent and wanted Bulk but was told it would be a squash more or less so he picked Man Dime Elijah Dean. I believe that Bulk will be in AEW within the next year.

  34. I’m pretty sure @paintedbynumbers was talking up Wardlow a lot when his first vignette aired over a year ago. I don’t think he was ever signed with WWE either.

  37. What I really want to see from a new, young, progressive wrestling company: 1. Good wrestling 2. Smart booking 3. Wrestlers getting opportunities that maybe wouldn't have gotten before 4.

  40. Kenta was telling Tanahashi that he owed him a new briefcase, since it was Tanahashi's skull that dented it. I am not kidding. @Curt McGirtoff the top of my head I think you might enjoy Cobb vs MiSu and Cobb vs Okada in addition to the matches that Natural recommended.
