    NJPW G1 Special in San Francisco

    Watched the show last night after getting home, finished writing it up today. Overall, didn't really like the show, thought early performances were lazy but thought they turned it around in the final 3. Juice/Jay was my favorite of the night, though I enjoyed Cody/Omega more than I thought I would. Also liked the loud Bay Area reaction Cobb got. I hope for the best for Hiromu, and if he's able to come back it might force him to tone things down. He has enough interesting stuff and a great personality that he could pull off a toned down style. http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/07/new-japan-pro-wrestling-g1-special-in.html

    JULY 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION.

    Helms was employed by WWE for nearly the entire decade, and was given a gimmick that sold a ton of merchandise to kids. Helms got the keys to Fort Knox compared to what a WCW title would have got him.

    New Footage Fridays

    Network makes a nice recovery with a Bullet/Brad vs. Horsemen tag, Phil and Matt check out a late 80s NJ/UWF tag, and we all dive into a 1994 El Dandy/Shu El Guerrero singles from IWA-Japan: http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/06/new-footage-fridays-dandy-shu-takada.html

    I am not doing a full Paul Diamond C&A. THAT WASN'T THE DEAL.

    I could probably knock out a Max Moon request C&A in a weekend. How many times could he have even made tape, a dozen? I know he had the Michaels match on the first Raw, any other matches against name guys?

    New Japan gets TV deal in US

    It's a very good point that Sabre has never been presented as someone who can kick out of a lot of big moves, and he really didn't get caught with a ton before the rainmakers and that piledriver on his damn head.

    New Japan gets TV deal in US

    AXS is showing most of Sakura Genesis and it has a couple things I'm curious about, so figured I would do a live blog (even though I started an hour late, who cares the show is a month old) over at Segunda Caida: http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/05/njpw-sakura-genesis-4118.html I hate Marty Scurll.

    I love hearing people say that I got them to watch Berzerker matches! I had so much fun with that, and still have a couple more of his AJPW and all of his WCW matches left to do. The new one might not be AS fun as the Berzerker one, but it's someone who doesn't get written about a ton. Matt up above may have figured it out... It is not Max Moon. Or Damien Demento. Or Chris Walker.

    I'm also - similar to last year's Berzerker C&A - going to do another C&A for a guy who had a relatively short WWF term.

    2018 INDIE WRESTLING THREAD

    I did not know this until this post. Last year I started getting adult diaper ads in my margins. Every single day, every single site, men's adult diapers, women's adult diapers, almost exclusively ads for adult diapers. Especially a new kind called "Silhouettes", because they fit so comfortably under your clothing! Over a month of my margins being filled with adult diaper ads. And then one day my Pissed Jeans record - the one I pre-ordered over a month earlier - arrived in the mail, and I realized that google had taken my searches for Pissed Jeans to mean that I had a problem regular pissing my pants. As if I had googled "Dear google, how can I prevent constantly soaking my dungarees in piss?" And can we just cut to you telling me how many members of Protomartyr have been Ants?

    2018 INDIE WRESTLING THREAD

    No doubt as shocked as I was a few years ago when I got a package from Relapse that had an Ultramantis Black album in it.

    2018 INDIE WRESTLING THREAD

    We wrote up more of WM Weekend, Evolve 103 and the WWN Supershow. Evolve 103 had my favorite Jaka performance, and I really like Jaka. The Supershow had those two bonkers good matches, with Riddle/Ospreay and Sabre/Sawa being so much better than I expected. This weekend is just the gift that keeps on giving. I would have been so burned out if I had been there live. Evolve 103: http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/04/wrestlemania-weekend-cherry-picking_13.html Supershow: http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/04/wrestlemania-weekend-cherry-picking_16.html

    NXT TAKEOVER - NEW ORLEANS - 4/7/2018

    Baszler looks totally badass in that picture with HHH. Holding that title and looking like an early Fury Road character sketch.

    NXT TAKEOVER - NEW ORLEANS - 4/7/2018

    Totally over the moon for this show. Phil and I wrote it up and it's honestly one of my favorite wrestling shows I've ever seen. I can't think of too many WWE women's matches that stack up to Baszler/Moon, and Almas and Gargano are just on another level right now when it comes to big time main events. http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2018/04/nxt-takeover-new-orleans-4718.html
