  1. I enjoyed IO/Conti vs Marina/Duke just for the ref confusing Marina and Duke and Duke calling him out on it. But yeah the show was rough. Montez Ford ruled in that main event. At least there was no Bugenhagen.
  2. Went to USA Pro in Orlando tonight. The show was about four hours which is classic Frank Goodman. Highlights included: Pablo Marquez(yes the same guy from ECW and WWF) vs Manny Fernandez in a Texas Bull Rope match. Awful as expected but i was still entertained. Manny didn't sell one thing and the rope broke a minute into the match Shane Douglas cut one of his vintage promos on "Dick Flair" and Vince and HBK. Shane looks in good shape for his age and way better than he was in the early 2000s. He even bumped for Chuckles the Clown which shocked me. The best part of the night was the DVDVR offer match in Dan Maff vs Vordell Walker. The match went all over the armory throwing chairs and bumping on wooden floors. Then the match went insane when Vordell drove a car into the Amory and attempted to run Maff over like that time Eddie Gilbert ran over Lawler. I've never seen Maff live but he was great.
  3. The Sasha/Bayley return was insane. It's been years since I've heard Full Sail be that loud. The crowd was hot all night actually. I'm guessing the first women's tag title defense will be vs Marina/Duke cause they have to do one on NXT tv before getting to the Sky Pirates takeover match. I agree with Edwin about this being a great taping. Eu vs Alister and Ricochet was incredible. Eu is so good, especially Fabian. Dug the DIY stuff even though I'm not a big fan of the feud. Hope they realized how big of a mistake it was to turn Gargano heel. Also the Bugenhagen hype is real. I don't get it but the guy is over huge.
  4. So who is actually under a impact contract now? I'm guessing guys like Johnny impact, cage, lucha Bros, Willie mack and even Taya are under LU contracts and are just being loaned out?
  5. FIP once ran a trios tourney at a Crossfit Gym in Orlando. There were no seats and guys were doing spots off of the CrossFit ropes. During Mania weekend in Orlando, FIP ran the Hardy show at a bar parking lot in Downtown Orlando. That was interesting. Next Tuesday, I'm going to an all women's show that's taking place at a softball practice facility that is in the downstairs section of a bar. Went to a show there last year and people were hitting balls into the crowd over a net they had separating the ring and the ball field.
  6. Yeah the Ascension love was weird. They were featured so much around that time and people got so sick of them and started cheering ironically. I think the "yeah" chant is because konnor would always say that when he landed strikes.
  7. I'm sure Becky is going to win at mania but it would have been so much better if she beat Ronda instead of beating Charlotte. The match will be good no doubt.
  8. Went to this tonight. Haven't been to a ROH show since 2009 and haven't watched ROH tv since the POP days. Thought it sucked to be honest. They have some good talent. Marty, Juice, Bandido, RUSH stick out the most. The tapings just so minor league and without any buzz. Part of that was probably cause they were in Florida. I don't get how Lethal is the champion. So boring. They should give the title to Marty or Juice at the MSG show. Show wasn't worth the drive and I have no desire to watch ROH again.
  9. That main event was just painfully boring. The wrestling wasn't bad but I just don't care about Ciampa at all. Gargano was reaching that way for me but I loved the Black/Gargano cage match and thought his match with Ricochet was good too. Ciampa just needs to go to 205 already. Enjoyed the rest of the card. Star marking performances from Bianca and the War Raiders.
  10. The final season of Broad City started on Thursday night. I enjoyed it after last season which wasn't great. I think that had to do with the election. Hope the season ends on a high note and doesn't become Archer like.
  11. Reina/Chelsea was one of the worst matches I've seen at NXT Orlando shows in a while. Just not good. Undisputed Era were hilarious during that Gauntlet match. I also like how at every Orlando show, Gargano finds different ways to mess with Aleister.
  12. I wonder if AEW is doing to let the wrestlers wrestle in other smaller indies like in the old days of TNA? I'm guessing the big stars like Cody and the Bucks won't. I also wonder if the roster will reach 1998 WCW levels by the end of the year.
  13. So the next NWA title defense for Nick Aldis takes place on Sunday night in Puerto Rico for the CWA promotion and it's a doozy Kinda hope Billy wins it.
  14. I will be there for that. Can't wait. Pablo still rules
  15. Breeze/ricochet was awesome. Felt like an old school nxt match from 2015 with the crowd going nuts for Tyler. I'm sure this is a one off but I wish he would stick around.
  16. Do we have to spoiler tag in a spoiler thread? Anyways, I enjoyed the cage match and I'm not a big fan of the feud. Johnny was playing heel but the crowd still liked him. Dig the finish. Thought the women's match was very awkward. Bianca looked out of it after catching a io dive. Her vs Shayna should be good.
  17. Went to the IWA Florida show tonight. For those that don't know, IWA Florida is an offshoot of the former IWA Puerto Rico. Ran by Savio Vega in the Orlando area. Fun show with a lot of unknowns, some old IWA guys and Glamour Boy Shane. Great to finally see Shane live. Easily the most over guy there. Next show has Carlito. A Colon working an IWA show is just weird given the history.
  18. I would say Darby, Strickland, Priscilla, and Henry. Henry might be a little too short but he's really good. I used to think Strickland was all entrance but he impressed me vs Fabian at the last Evolve in Florida. Darby and Priscilla would make a good team in NXT. I have no idea why she's with such a boring sack like Theory. They have no chemistry. But the guy from Evolve who would work best in NXT is AR Fox. But we know that will never happen. Of course, I thought Riddle would never be in NXT but here we are.
  19. Pco is on the next show in February along with Shane Douglas. Crowd was about 150 or so. Better than wwn draws in Florida. Not sure if it's worth the drive as the wrestling isn't really good unless you like old wwr/tna guys and a MAGA heel group dominating everything.
  20. Went to the USA Pro show tonight in Orlando. I like going to Frank Goodman shows because you never know what to expect. The main event was jack swagger vs Vordell Walker in a cage. Sadly, the match wasn't very good as the crowd was pretty dead and a lot of people left after the Elijah Burke match. Weirdest match of the night was Shannon Moore vs Samuel Shaw. The ring ropes broke mid match. Two times, Shannon refused to kick out at three but the ref didn't count three. Finally, after the third time, Shannon got up and told the ref to fuck off and left from backstage. Never seen anything like that and I don't think it's an angle cause Goodman isn't that smart.
  21. Bayley was very popular with children. At least at the NXT shows. There are still little girls that dress like her to this day at the live events.
  22. The evolve show was fun live. Besides the profits, aichner and matha, also on the show were Jessie and the Brazilians. Thought all the nxt guys looked good. Especially Adrian and aichner. Only bad thing about the show is they drew really badly. I don't know why Gabe and sal continue to run the orphieum. It's such a shit building. Especially on a Sunday. Can't wait for the forgotten sons to be the new catch point of wwn.
  23. For a guy with 10 matches under his belt, he wasn't too bad. Some slip ups here and there but he has potential. The show peaked at the battle royal. Ohno wrestling in big T rex outfit was amazing. As was Matt Chicken Riddle, Drake Maverick as EC3's Robin and Otis as Mandy Rose. Rest of the show was ok but I kinda wish I went to IWA instead.
  24. I'd say it's closer to 75%. WWC only runs a few shows per month these days compared to twice a week they were running a few years ago. A lot of guys left for the Florida indies but they are slowly coming back. As for WWL vs WWC, I'll go with WWL now. WWC is dreadful to watch with the dead crowds and same guys on top. They have brought in some new guys but most of them aren't very good. WWL runs the same building as WWC but draws a much bigger crowd. I'm liking the IWA/WWL feud they are doing. Edwin is right that it could all end if the money mark leaves but I'm enjoying it while it lasts. CWA isn't too bad as they are mostly WWC castoffs and indie guys. I'm sad the Negro Casas match got canceled.
  25. Chad Knaus and Jimmie Johnson are parting ways after this year. I haven' watched NASCAR much the past couple years but this feels like an end of the Johnson era.
