  1. I’ll be on the floor in section L. If time permits maybe we can meet for a quick cheers. Enjoy the philly show. I was debating whether or not to go, but since I got tickets for the queens show, I decided to save my bank account a few dollars.
  2. I was able to sell the ticket. Thanks for the help though. And @Nice Guy Eddie you going to the show tonight? I was underwhelmed knowing this Newark show initially was going to be blood and guts and we missed out but since I’m going to both this one and Grand Slam, I’m not as irked.
  3. Not sure if I’m allowed to put this here or not, so I’m sorry ahead of time. A buddy of mine and I were going to the Newark show tonight and he tore his Achilles yesterday and can’t make it. I’m still going. If anyone wants to go, I’m willing to sell here for face value. They are floor seats, level L for $52.45. Message me if interested. Sorry again if this isn’t allowed.
  4. I'm looking forward to that rematch too! I'm kind of hoping Impact/NJPW/AEW can expand the Elite vs BC feud so it can occur across those promotions. Each of those promotions can get a big match like Impact get Kenny vs Jay, AEW gets Kenny/Bucks vs Jay/GOD and then a blowoff in NJPW where the losing faction has to disband 5v5 elimination style match.
  5. Just a random question to throw out there, but is Jericho the modern day Terry Funk?
  6. So Tanahashi is USA bound but not for AEW. He’s challenging Archer at the New Japan show in LA on 8/14.
  7. Fun show! Disappointed Hangman lost but I guess his story continues. And Darby I planting the seeds for Chicago should add more eyes onto that show. Had to watch the main event on a slight fast forward because deathmatches aren’t really my cup of tea. MJF announcing the Juice as the third labor for Jericho was something I didn’t know I wanted to see in 2021. Jericho has definitely lost a step and I’m sure Juvi has too, but I’m sure they’ll figure out a decent match. They should also add how Jericho's the reason Juvi lost his mask into the storyline. Jericho needs a week off and lots of alcohol, neosporin and bandages after tonight.
  8. The contrast in the 2 pictures says it all. The first picture, Punk is standing tall and looks a bit arrogant. Bryan has his hand on his hip and looking at Punk like he can’t wait to stretch him. In the second pic both men are leaning into their handshake showing respect for each other. I wonder what a picture #3 might look like? ?
  9. I don’t know which theme would make me mark out more, Cult of Personality or The Final Countdown. It’s almost like 10 years ago when Punk dropped the pipebomb promo and we all thought things would change. The big difference is now is there no Vince pulling the strings and sky’s the limit.
  10. Macho takes Backlunds spot as the crazy vet and beats Bret for the title at survivor series 94. Diesel wins the 95 rumble and beats Savage at mania while Bret beats Shawn in a #1 contenders match. Diesel defends against Bret at the first IYH and it pretty ends like the rumble match with lots of interference but the biggest change is a re-debuting Sid taking Diesel out as Shawn’s new bodyguard. This sets up the summer of 95 with Diesel vs Shawn and Sid. Shawn can still turn babyface by the end of the year and get his mania win back from Bret for the title at mania 12.
  11. I was waiting on line to get into MetLife Stadium for Mania 29 and I overheard a few guys in front me saying, "That's Tanahashi over there." I looked around and a few rows parallel to mine, there he was Hiroshi Tanahashi with a baseball cap on and another Japanese fellow (could've been Liger for all I know). I knew I probably would never have the opportunity to say anything to him ever again so I walked over to him very casually, extended my hand and said "Thank you, I'm a big fan." He shook my hand, gave me a small bow and I walked back to my line. I'm pretty sure he was grateful I didn't overreact or bring attention to him. Many of the people around him seemed to be oblivious as to who he was but that's to be expected with large casual fans that show up for Mania.
  12. Bret is my all-time favorite. He was the first wrestler I saw as a kid that hooked me and I've been a fan ever since. But Kobashi holds a special place with me also. I didn't learn about the All Japan 90s matches and early NOAH ( I didn't have a computer until 03) until the early-mid 00s when I got into ROH and saw Joe vs. Kobashi. Kobashi stood out to me the most because he had Bret level selling and could take an ass whopping and a strong emotional come back that made you cheer for him until the final bell. In Feb 2006 when I was 16, I was diagnosed with cancer. It was a rough time for me. Being a high school student that played sports, I had a job, a pretty fun social life and all of that stopped in an instant. My only real outlet was wrestling and I spent countless hours, months at a time in bed watching all the wrestling I could get my hands on. Then in the summer of 2006 when I found out Kobashi was diagnosed with cancer, it hit me pretty hard. And on days when I didn't feel like being here anymore, I would think of Kobashi and it would give me inspiration because I knew like any Kobashi match, he would get his ass kicked but he'd eventually make a strong come back. I had my last chemo treatment in Dec of 2006 and I've been in remission ever since but I was still cheering on Kobashi because he was still in the midst of it. And less than a year later, he made his come back, gave the burning hammer to cancer and then came back in the ring. And when he came back to wrestle, that's when I truly felt like I beat my cancer. And that's my story for Kobashi appreciation.
  13. We can all agree the WCW cruiserweight division from 96-early 99 was probably the best junior division between the major US promotions. But the Smackdown cruiserweight division from 02-04 is sooo underrated. I’d stay up on Saturday nights to watch Velocity just to see those matches.
  14. Kenta vs Low Ki at Final Battle 05 and Taker vs Batista Mania 23 are tied for me. Two totally different matches but both kicked ass. The Shield vs Evolution at Extreme Rules, AJ Styles vs Roman Reigns at Extreme Rules, The Revival vs DIY at NXT Brooklyn 2, Jay Lethal vs Jay Briscoe at Best in the World and Bryan Danielson vs Morishima at Manhattan Mayhem are honorable mentions.
  15. I cut my paid subscription to the network a year ago but I do have Xfinity, so I guess it works out for me also.
  16. I could see Orange Cassidy adopting a version of that for a finish.
  17. It cracks me up after HHH catches Funk he claps his hands. I guess he's happy because that botch could've ended a lot worse.
  18. That's not Savio, it's the Godfather. And I believe that's Samu in between Owen and Fuji.
  19. I was thinking about that recently too and with how the commentators are putting Wardlow over it looks like he'll eventually get a babyface push. AEW has been pretty good with building storylines so they'll probably go back to MJF berating him while the Inner Circle falls a part. I could see him and possibly Sammy or Santana/Ortiz coming out it as babyfaces as well.
  20. Pay attention walking to the ring
  21. Kicking 2020 in the face and hoping everyone has a safe and healthy New Year!
