  1. Oh dear lord! Yus!!!! Thanks for the tags @The Natural! I’ve been pretty in and out of things with work so I’m glad I saw the email notification. For shirt sizes, they can run tight in comparison to US sizes. But I have no problem with the Four Pillars shirt. The Kawada jersey might be a tad tighter, but it’s not overly tight. I think it’s more of a form fit on me. Plus, I’m losing weight (trying to) so it’s motivation. Lol Mecha Shotei is my favorite shirt company atm. I hope they do a Misawa and Taue Jersey.
  2. Haha, so great! Thanks. —— side note: I loved reading Niko and Gordi talk about the 95 tag. That’s one of my favorites as well and I absolutely love the Kobashi crawling spot.
  3. Lol, shamefully I only know Kerry. That area is a big blind spot. Hit me up if you have some must watch David and Kevin matches. Willing and always excited to learn.
  4. Oh boy, I really am behind. Time to get liquored up and watch some wrestling. Apologies to my friends on here, didn’t mean to blow you all off. Work and Derpin. The Fabulous Freebirds vs Von Erich’s and Iceman King Parsons: recommended by the legendary @Smelly McUgly Normally I’m a more a fan of matches with commentary, but with how unbelievably pumped this crowd is, I think this is better without it. Just laying on my couch I realize I’m wiggling my legs in excitement. All that happened is the good guys got all grabby and pushy and the Freebirds fled the ring. Th
  5. Thanks @Leonidas! I’m strictly behind the scenes. I’ll occasionally have fun doing bits but my acting is terrible. I had a friend that did both behind and in front of camera and it wore him out. Directing is stressful enough, haha. For this project I wrote, directed, and edited. The crew was pretty limited and shoots were spaced out. I would have a Camera Operator for maybe half of the shoots and the others when it was just myself and the actors I’d work camera.
  6. Sorry all. Off and on busy and all over the place. Planning on enjoying your match from last week at the end of this one @El Gran Gordi! @Smelly McUgly, I’m gonna toss you this one. Let me know if you’ve already watched it and I’ll switch it: Brodie Lee vs Claudio
  7. Hey film nerds amongst Wrestling nerds. Gonna ramble, copy/paste and combine FB posts for mine, and ramble some more: Roughly five years ago I was as pacing around in a St Paul basement while waiting for my laundry. I’ve always thought best while moving. As a very kid I would run around the outside house and call it “Dreaming.” Different stories would pop into my head about silly things like wrestling, opening up a restaurant, or adventure. Eventually the dreaming left the circles around my house and became biking around the neighborhood. At a young age my dreaming began to transition fro
  8. Ohhhhhh, I’m excited for them to clubber each other. @El Gran Gordi, this deep fried calamari will give you a fun one. Dusty, Putsky, Andre vs Afa, Sika, & Samula.
  9. That made me cry, @Burgundy LaRue. He was a father and a husband. Clearly a friend to many.
  10. Ric Flair vs Ricky Steamboat: AJPW 82 This was fun. I feel the first thing that should be commented on is how beautiful both these men’s hair was. Strikingly 80’s. Steamboat had this contest on lock for the early going. Applying side headlocks to wear down Flair and with every long earned escape was able to Monkey Flip Ric back down. Even with these “rest holds” that people like to call them, you could still see the physical creativity of constantly ringing and pulling back on the head and bursts of athleticism of phenomenally high jumps by both men. When given the opportunity
  11. This is hitting me. Just tragic and completely unexpected.
  12. Hey squad! Been running around a bit. Hoping to get all caught up tonight with @Curt McGirt‘s match and this week’s match, if not tomorrow. @Six String Orchestra, ima hit you up with a unique match up. Abdullah the Butcher vs Nobuhiko Takada
  13. I’m laughing at myself so hard right now. I was in the zone typing.
  14. Jerry Blackwell vs Timothy Thatcher This was the classic tale of endearing goofball vs serious technician. You have the plaid masked with mustache come out first and get everyone laughing. The crowd was already having a good time, they seemed lively. The best part of Blackwell’s speech was it wasn’t just jokes, but actually hyping up Thatcher as being a legitimate badass. If you were unfamiliar with him, you got the gist of both characters before the match. The heart of the match is that Thatcher is a vastly superior fighter and while Blackwell did have the weight advantage that he u
