    NJPW WrestleKingdom 12 in Tokyo Dome 1/4/2018

    I remember SANADA's "debut" at Invasion Attack 2016. I wasn't familiar with him but he looked like a big deal. Then less than a month later, he lost clean to Okada in a lackluster match that Okada slept walk through. That's shitty booking I remember saying about New Japan for the first time since I started following closely.

    In contrast, the Goto/Suzuki match was very immersive throughout. It helped that I had English commentary on to explain the context but it would still have been visually impressive (due to Suzuki mostly) nevertheless.

    Finishing stretch of Okada/Naito was spectacular but the stuff before it was not really engaging. They did moves with no outward intent or consequence, but its ending I"ll remember so I guess it's fine.

    The entirety of the blading sequence in Omega/Jericho was funny as shit. Red shoes and Omega botched the hand off of the blade the first time (you can see the thing fly off). The ref later went back to Omega with the blade but Omega opted to try and draw blood hardway. When that didn't work, he hailed the ref over to hand him over the blade.
  5. Mark Henry fathered a hand and still became a bad ass world champ 15 years later. Jason Jordan will be fine.

    I wasn't able to get into season 3 due to workload reasons. What would be the top 10 (or however) matches that I should go seek out? Killshot vs. Dante Fox seems like it's mentioned a lot so I have that in mind.

    Raw is John Cena Is Good At His Job - 8/28/2017

    It's scripted. Cena getting the last words while Reigns looked beaten is scripted. Reigns looked beaten because it was in the script, not because he was slow witted and couldn't think of a good retort. Next week, the script will have Cena eating a spear or something. The following week they'll have another scripted segment. That's how it works.

    Raw is THAT PROMO - 7/10/2017

    Only an unreasonably close minded Roman Reigns hater will consider that. Jeez.

    Are we still referencing the awfulness of his booking from 2 years ago? When does that expire?

    Great Balls of Fire 2017

    It's because he just slapped it on without any tease or setup. And it was applied so loosely. Brock was working extra hard to make his face turn purple while Joe's hands were gently sliding down Brock's face. We rag about Cena's shitty STF, but that coquina clutch by Joe was something else. It's been that way in his other matches as well.

    It's hard to believe that there are some on this board, one of the most intelligent places on the wrestling webs, who still hate Reigns.

    MR. ROBOT

    My apologies that this is season 1 griping: for a show with a technology slant, there doesn't seem to be a lot of CCTVs in the settings: Elliot picking the lock of a door in Steel Mountain, Angela sneaking to work early to upload the malware on Ollie's work machine, or Tyrell inviting his boss' wife to the roof deck. None of those actions would be considered if they were aware of the existence of cameras.

    This show reminded me a lot of my experience with Homeland. I read great things about it so I started watching it. Loved the first few episodes and its subject matter. Then it devolved into something I was not interested in until I became apathetic and annoyed at the ridiculousness of the rest of season. I went into a wait a see attitude; monitoring the feedback for season 2. When it looked like it was more of the same; I jumped off.

    LU needs to change things up. I don't know what, but every match -- good or bad -- feels the same now.
