  1. I'm with ya. I kept feeling like I must have missed an episode of NXT that clearly re-established him as a super honorable babyface in one week somehow.
  2. for all my shitting on ROH in the last few hours, I did realize last night that I've now been to two ROH shows, and two CMLL Aniverasarios in my life, and Dragon Lee was on the two ROH shows and not the CMLL ones
  3. Oh man, you're in for a treat. His 2017 run with the BJW Strong Heavyweight Title has a bunch of really terrific matches, including one against Okabayashi that's out of this world.
  4. I don't follow wrestling twitter thaaaat widely I guess, and I'm not surprised that people liked this match more than me but I am genuinely a little shocked that the range of opinions stretches THIS far in the positive range.

    G1 Supercard

    I'm still glad I went, and tremendously enjoyed the opener, the junior three-way, Naito/Ibushi, the finish to the main, and ZSJ/Tana (despite the fact that people were mostly trying to figure out the dumb Enzo & Cass shit during the first half of it), but, damn, ROH was such fucking garbage tonight for so many reasons.
  6. I think Riddle's vibe working slightly heel is less the silly douchebag energy of UE and more that he's such a superior athlete that he can afford to be laid back, so when things become hard for him he gets frustrated and dials up the aggression to a scary extent. His match against Darby Allin to towards the end of his Evolve run is a great example of that I think (even to a certain extent the Ospreay match from last mania weekend).
  7. I loved Dream/Riddle so much. Like how dare Matt Riddle keep improving as a wrestler?
  8. SHIMMER this morning was a very solid show, with good matches all up and down the card. Maybe nothing like a match of the weekend contender on it, but lots of high quality wrestling and a great crowd. Su Yung vs. Shazza McKenzie was probably my fav, but the Twisted Sisters vs. Mercedes/Melissa tag, and the Samantha Eagles vs. Dust main event were all quite good. WWN Supershow wasn't super well attended (I'm assuming Stardom ate up a bunch of that crowd), but still a fun show (though some people in the smaller crowd were 100% percent more annoying than anyone at SHIMMER or DDT). If you like big dudes chopping the hell out of each other to the point of noticeable chest discoloration (and I know you do), Kazusada Higuchi vs. JD Drake is absolutely a must see. Skulk vs. Damnation six man was also predictably very fun.
  9. I don't think I could have possibly been more satisfied with that live DDT experience.
  10. SHIMMER finally announced a good chunk of their card and, in addition to all the very good wrestlers I was expecting, Hiroyo Matsumoto's on it!
  11. Gabe just announced a bunch of matches on Twitter. Evolve: - Eddie Kingston & Joe Gacy vs. Konosuke Takeshita & MAO - Darby Allin vs Anthony Henry - Harlem Bravado vs Adrian Jaoude - Curt Stallion vs Kazusada Higuchi - Montez Ford vs. Shane Strickland - Austin Theory vs Kyle O'Reilly Supershow: - AR Fox, Leon Ruff & Adrian Alanis vs. Daisuke Sasaki, Tetsuya Endo & Soma Takao - Eddie Kingston, Joe Gacy & Shane Strickland vs. Team wXw (tbd) - JD Drake vs. Kazusada Higuchi - Austin Theory & Brandi Lauren vs. Darby Allin & Priscilla Kelly Skulk vs. Damnation & Drake vs. Higuchi make me very happy about having tickets for that WWN show (as does not having a big Theory singles match as the main, tbh).
  12. quick list while killing time on a Saturday. Def more Gargano than I'd imagine I'd have in the first few months and I still need to watch most of NXT UK, but here we are. 1. Johnny Gargano vs. Ricochet, 1/26 2. Sasha Banks vs. Ronda Rousey, 1/27 3. Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Andrade Cien Almas, 1/15 4. Velveteen Dream, Aleister Black, & Ricochet vs. Adam Cole, Tomasso Ciampa, & Johnny Gargano, 2/3 5. Matt Riddle vs. Drew Gulak, 2/6 6. Finn Balor vs. Brock Lesnar, 1/27 7. Velveteen Dream vs. Johnny Gargano, 2/20 8. War Machine vs. The Undisputed Era, 1/26 9. Velveteen Dream vs. Tyler Bate, 2/6 10. Men's Smackdown Title Elimination Chamber, 2/17 11. Mustache Mountain vs. the Grizzled Young Vets, 1/12 12. Women's Tag Title Elimination Chamber, 2/17
  13. Both the elimination chambers were pretty great overall in different ways, I thought. The women’s tag match had the less great finishing stretch (tho that last submission was dope) but the body of the match had a lot of good brawling, good bumps, and interesting pairings. The men’s match I thought was very blah in the first half but goddamn that Bryan/Kofi match at the end more than made up for it.
  14. I know AJ is a beloved babyface but good god, what kinda herb do you have to be in that audience to be cheering against Kofi Kingston at that point in that match.
