  1. I think this was my favourite aew ppv to date. Flat ending to the double main events aside I thought every match was perfect or thereabouts for what it was, with maybe the women's match being fine instead of really good/great. Emotional highs of Shibata and Claudio. Damn shame about the 4 way finish. Felt like Tanahashi needed one more hope spot before being put away. And the post match definitely didn't need to happen. Aew brawls are almost always super flat and they do too many of them. Feel like the Punk/Kingston one was the only one that felt like it had the required passion. This didn't have a moty classic but so fucking ridiculously consistent. I wasn't going to spend 50 on this so I vpn'd fite to get it for 20usd. ZSJ and Claudio for motn and maybe a fringe motyc. Perfect storytelling of the freak athlete being broken down but persevering. Crowd was tiring by that point but they were there when it mattered and aside from whatever shenanigans was going down on the hardcam side in the corner during the main they were super respectful. Savvy crowd knowing not to blow their load on the first two matches like recent ppv crowds.
  2. Been watching TNA weekly PPVs while working out again the past week. Good Lord, Road Dogg looked dreadful in 2002. Truth was great, as was Jarrett. Lawler, despite being super fucked up, was so solid too.
  3. Fightful sent out an update that is 99% positive a spoiler for the mystery man. So, if you're wanting to go in untainted, maybe avoid social media until after the show. I would certainly hope nobody on here would post it. Not even in a spoiler box because most of us do not have restraint.
  4. It is so, so good to have Tully back and all over this show. He's the best.
  5. In that SRS interview, Omega said his return to backstage work last month during the tournament was not a good idea, as it threw off his rehab routine. He made it sound like he wouldn't be at Forbidden Door. Maybe that was a work (brother) maybe it was not.
  6. Kenny Omega is doing an interview w/ SRS right now and it's very silly. Worked soft burial of Will Ospreay. It would be funnier if this wasn't leading up to a match and instead just his opinion.
  7. Remember how fun the pre-Kyrie/KD/Harden Nets were with the bench mob and the pissy pamper meme? That feels like forever ago.
  8. I feel sorry for whomever is Danielson's replacement if it isn't Claudio. I don't think it'll be a Rey #30 in the 2014 Rumble type of maddening boos or anything, but the crowd will be incredibly deflated if it's not him. I'm sure they'd pop for shitbum Gargano, so there's that, but I'll be dead inside. My love for AEW extinguished for good. If it's not Claudio at least let it be somebody good like the names thrown out here in Thatcher and Biff. Gresham in Blood and Guts would not fit at all. Ain't no need for complex pinning combinations in that match.
  9. I know this story ends with Jungle beating Christian but, man, if it were me it would be a long chase for that W. Give Christian the first match and make Jungle go on a long journey and show true growth to get to Christian's level. Let Christian ride this wave and give him some real juice before he puts over Jungle. That was tremendous even if he slipped a bit in the setup to the dad line. Heel Christian is god tier.
  10. Okay, time for Omega and Ibushi to start their own promotion. I would burn bridges with NJPW in order to bring Ibushi in but that's just me.
  11. Forbidden Door will be the first AEW ppv i do not order. With it being only a month out from Double or Nothing, NJPW being ice cold, the build being trash, Punk's injury, AEW booking being relatively poor the past 3-6 months with a few exceptions, no Omega/Ibushi, I don't have much to care about. The Ospreay TV has been quality despite the fact I dislike him but I'm good. If AEW is still struggling by late July then there are serious problems to be concerned about. I don't think we can entirely put this relatively down period (and it's nothing major but there are some cracks showing) on Forbidden Door either. Some straight up bad booking decisions the past half year or so. At least with AEW, the matches will always be there to make the shows worthwhile.
  12. For 1v1 matches, I think KOCII is better than Fire Pro most of the time. For anything else, Fire Pro is better.
  13. Beterbiev is scary. I went to feed my cat after the first round and the fight was over by the time I got back. I should've known better.
  14. Had that all ready to copy n paste into here. Man, I forgot about Lee Moriarty, not going to lie. Has he been on the YouTube shows lately?
  15. But where is Tomko these days? 2v2
  16. Yeah, bringing in that piece of shit is way more egregious than any jeff hardy nonsense.
  17. Cyberfight wrestler on a NJPW cross-promoted show? No way.
  18. If you read anything about Matt Hughes' personality or life outside of fighting, it's the least the fucker deserves. I hope he rots in hell. He can rest in piss tomorrow tonight, the bozo.
  19. You think Miro is going full babyface? Force of nature above such trivial human matters? Or just a one off? Whatever direction they go with him, I hope this bullshit 4way match evolves into a 3 month feud between Miro and Pac beefing over the gold.
  20. I'm so thrilled we're going to get Jericho hanging on to the vestiges of his hair like he's Gollum. Sammy back with Jericho feels right for the time being. He's not a good babyface even if his moveset should suggest otherwise.
  21. Ospreay vs. Dax was a top 5 AEW match of the year so far I think. Ladder match was a blast, don't care about the selling. It's a ladder match. So fucking happy we finally get Jungle vs. Christian. Let's go.
  22. God damn, man. You typed Page vs. Miro and my brain instantly conjured up Hangman and I almost exploded. Whenever we finally get that match it should be a big deal, for a belt, and on PPV.
  23. Okay, looking it up, Warriors were favourites... I remember one of my students showing me a poll or something and it was like 70something percent had Boston winning, which blew my mind. I want Steph to further solidify his legacy as one of the all time greats. If he wins this trophy with a significantly less than 100% Thompson as his main sidekick that would be huge.
  24. Weren't they the heavy favourites according to advanced stats nerds and general polls too?
