  1. AEW's game will be playable at Gamescom running August 24th-28th. I'm sure the footage will be dogshit quality but hoping people enjoy it.
  2. Gotta fit more antisemitism and bonus dlc transphobia content in there.
  3. My preorder of Demon Throttle arrived today. It is incredibly unforgiving, funny, and super fun. One death and you start all over again.
  4. MJF wants more money. I don't think he has a problem with his push. But, yeah, MJF should be the one to beat Punk based on their history but they have so many world class athletes that it's not a big deal if MJF isn't the one. As others have stated, if you're going for MJF getting nuclear heat, he needs to cheat his ass off or fuck over Kingston in some way for the title. As for big money matches, I still feel like it's Punk vs. Danielson and you could do a stadium, though you may need some help filling it up with NJPW or something. Ibushi vs. Omega.
  5. I'll say it's nice to have another big title match where either guy could win and there's serious intrigue. Love it when they do that because even on PPV there are some really predictable world title matches.
  6. They're reluctant to do those finishes on a Dynamite. Can't imagine doing it in one of the bigger matches they can book headlining a PPV. It's okay if one of them loses, so long as Khan as something in mind for them. He won't ice Moxley like he has women's champions of the past.
  7. They'd eventually need to unify the titles still too.
  8. I got to see Kiki's Delivery Service in theatres for the second time last week. Jiji is da man. That cat is adorable also.
  9. Only played one match in Rumbleverse but it's so fun. I somehow eliminated 14 of the 40 players in the match but finished runner-up. I'm going to try to get my gaming group into this. It's simple to play, which is great too.
  10. Nice chopping right left (they even remind me he's a southpaw) after some very good body work.
  11. Cult of Lamb looks really neat. I'll absolutely get that eventually.
  12. Dark Order is gonna win that side tho.
  13. Real smart. Reynolds has the head injury from the Butcher and Blade attack recently to fall back on.
  14. Yeah, Omega is back. Punk is back. Danielson is back. Meltzer said the goal was to have the big dogs healthy for autumn going into tv deal negotiations. Business is about to pick up. Sure looks like we are getting Ospreay vs. Omega interactions in round 2. They really gonna have Hangmin cheerlead?
  15. No, he was definitely not this good. I am so glad he learned or somebody told him to cut the cutesy agility spots out of his repertoire. Also, Darby can make damn near any big man look great so I am gonna hold off on massive praise on king until he starts doing well with people other than Allin. I didn't like the Mox match but he's still come a long long way from one of the worst matches I've seen in PWG (bola vs PCO).
  16. Really neat fake out by announcing Danielson is in the building and he was the obvious choice to make the super save after the first round of cavalry was taken out. Saw a tweet saying Jericho is having one of his best years and whole I think the character stuff hasn't been that great he has had four of his best matches of his career in 2022. That was an incredible turning back of the clock.
  17. Definitely a strong finish but man it felt like the timing on all the sting and Malakai stuff was way off. Took me out for a minute, which is disappointing because Stinger always adds to matches.
  18. Think the Sting and HoB shenanigans brought down the coffin match and that the straight up brawl they had a couple weeks ago was better. Was awesome up to the bullshit tho. Darby is incredible. Here's hoping King can have good matches with somebody other than Darby.
  19. Holy fucking shit that post match angle was FANTASTIC. Octopus got his money's worth on that pop alone. Ross sounded sincerely enthusiastic for the first time I can remember in ages. Awesome opener and main event. Tornado was a bit sloppy but fun and effective. Thought most everything in the middle was a massive drop off and just stunk. That happens too often lately, hot opener, boring middle section, good main event.
  20. Jimmy Hart says Warner owns around 100 WCW songs, almost assuredly including Saturn and Raven's themes, some theme songs/tv show themes and a lot of unused ones.
  21. That was a pretty average match and pretty much the only disappointing one I can think of from Mox the past few months. They would need a massive match that isn't in the works yet to do the heavy lifting in selling the ppv if this is the direction they go.
  22. I feel like I'll love it but not be able to appreciate it to its fullest without the context leading up to it, same as I do Duggan/DiBiase with all the stips.
  23. Pretty much the perfect match. The psychology and selling is off the charts. I like one of the Sting/Vader matches and '91 WarGames on that level too but we're just talking Steamboat. '92 WarGames with Steamboat should be in the conversation for best Steamboat matches tho. It's not top 5, probably not even top 10 but I always dug the Tenryu/Steamboat match from AJPW in '84. Same with the Luger sprint from GAB '89. I'm ashamed (uh oh lol) to say that I've never seen the Slaughter/Kernodle vs. Steamboat/Youngblood cage match. Is it as good as the hype? I always wanted to watch it in context of the feud so I kept putting it off.
  24. I had somehow not seen the Rude/Steamboat iron man match until last year and it is one of the best WCW matches in history. Love that to bits.
  25. Feel like there are levels here. She's done well when her boundaries are pushed a bit and almost always overdelivers but she is not in the position to go 15 minutes I think.
