  1. Knowing NOAH’s past history, and what caused their downfall. They made the right choice on who went over.
  2. I totally forgot this existed. I remember their G1, and IWGP matches, but this was a rare non-title singles match for the two. It’s a good one, and from a time when Okada had a very strict formula. So don’t expect anything special until the very end.
  3. It works on the Firestick’s many browsers. Same with all streaming services really. I believe it works on Chromecast, but I gave up on that device after awhile because it was too buggy. It’s probably improved since. It’s just when NJWorld got an official app on the Amazon store, I immediately jumped over to the competitor.
  4. That main event was on fire. Those two were completely locked in. Kenny hasn’t looked this good since the PAC match.
  5. Jefferson Starship catalog might be tougher. Edit: Apparently going by Jefferson Airplane again.
  6. I can’t imagine that music is all that pricey. So more power to using licensed tracks if it’s affordable.
  7. So I’ve actually watched an ROH YouTube clip. I had seen this lady on these thumbnails for the videos for months without knowing who she was. I’ll say this, after seeing her work here she might be the best on screen Kayfabe personality in wrestling since Gene Okerlund. This woman is committed to being a caricature of a real life sports announcer. You don’t hear, or see wrestling announcers like this anymore so it’s kind of refreshing that this person exists. Now I don’t want announcers like this all the time, but I’m okay with this one personality. Quinn McKay is her name, and she’ll prob
  8. You know I thought TV would survive a little longer, but then I saw that Discovery, and their family of channels was starting up a Discovery+ service, with exclusive programming. That is a huge blow to cable. Outside of Sports, Wrestling, and News, a lot of those Discovery channels pull in the bulk of TV subscribers.
  9. Also to be fair being a dedicated TV channel in 2021 means nothing anymore. All the networks are putting all their eggs into the streaming service model. TV has turned into a mall that only has big department stores, and a food court. Sports, Wrestling & Cable News being the department stores, and local news being the food court. The rest is just kiosks filled with things that nobody buys. I give Vice a year before they ironically air reruns of Miami Vice, and becomes a shell channel.
  10. I kinda get a kick out of it because I hear the average person use it now too. At least “Smark” seems to have been erased from the lingo today.
  11. This isn’t much of a spoiler since people have openly talked about how dark the game is. I wish the ending was silly honestly. The setting at the end was calling for an action romp to lighten the mood.
  12. Well, Hulk, I also think people find your personality very grading, especially when you have lost so much influence in the industry that nobody has to force themselves to kiss up to you.
  13. Yes, it’s like watching George Lucas’s attempt at a Robert Rodriguez shot in his garage budget film. Somehow worse given that first film feels like an escalation of the franchise budget before the third film.
  14. One of my favorite aspects of AEW has been guys arriving by obscurity, and impressing me either on the main show, or Dark. So I’m with you. If there is talent out there, then go after it. I still would like some established stars on short term deals, in a different setting from time to time. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some guys switch bases for varieties sake. Namely the ones you mentioned.
  15. They should be getting Lee Johnson into the next phase of his career, and not worry too much about a guy who won’t move the needle like Cole. But Cole could sign just because it’s pretty obvious he isn’t in line for anything bigger in the wwe, and I’ve read a snippet from an article recently that WWE guys aren’t getting the big pay raises they were seeing prior to COVID anymore. So being paid similar, working with close friends, and booked in another potential big spot could lure him in.
  16. Yep, the worse his neck got the better he got. I’ll admit I wasn’t a fan of Suzuki the pro wrestler prior to his highly praised Tanahashi championship match. He was just too “technical” at one point, and relied on his charisma to work matches. It was probably for safety reasons, but to me that made for some of the most boring big matches in wrestling back then. He eventually figured it out, and developed a routine that fans understood well. That’s practically the New Japan in-ring style now. It’s very routine, but digestible.
  17. But maybe splitting from the Horsemen would’ve surprisingly been a good move. Could you imagine the potential of a Mongo & Joe Gomez super team?
  18. Debbie Malenko never really got her due if you think about it. I wonder what she can do now after years of being on the shelf. I could see her as a Mr. Bob Backlund of sorts for the roster, if she can still go in the ring. I say give her some Dark work, Tony. Edit: Looking at her Cagematch profile, and some other matches on a Google video search, it appears she made a brief comeback in 2017.
  19. I’m thinking more along the lines of “Oh shit, that guy can’t take a proper bump anymore, but dammit he might be even better”. I agree that Tenryu to some eyes might’ve been great already. In my eyes though, he just seems more locked in. He becomes stiffer, smarter, and while you say it’s “grumpiness”, I would say it’s more cockiness. He just comes across as more like an old, but youthful punk trying to show up both veterans, and (At the time)today’s wrestlers.
  20. I’m watching a BATT Vs. WAR six man from 2002. Seeing the brilliant early 00’s Tenryu at work, and I had a thought. I’ve always felt that Tenryu didn’t get great until he became nearly immobile. So I ask, who is the greatest past their physical prime wrestler ever?
