  1. I can give Will a pass as long as he gets back on track, and stays there. The problem with Ospreay is that he isn’t that potential “top guy” anymore. A mix of the controversy in the UK which isn’t his alone(and the fact that it crippled the UK wrestling fanbase as a whole), and his push being in the middle of a pandemic period basically made whatever rise he had moot. I mean the whole point of his push was to bring in not only interest from US fans, but also create more interest from the UK, and potentially run a bigger building over there. That ain’t happening anymore. So what he needs to do is reinvent himself yet again. Look to Pillman, or Naito, or someone else. Like he’s kinda doing the crazy person thing, but it’s the Conor McGreggor “Crazy Person on Top” thing, and clearly Will has never truly been on top. He needs to fall again, before he can rise. Honestly going to the WWE would probably do him good. I can imagine them just completely turning him into a loser, and then letting him go pretty fast. That would completely burn his ego a bit, and maybe send him a message. Which makes me feel bad to say because he’s basically killed himself the past five years going a 100mph thinking he’d set himself for life, and it’s done the opposite. Still anything that could kill his ego before he does worse, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
  2. Do you guys think the cause of this might be happening because Triple H, and Steph have gone through a personal divorce due to infidelity, and only a few close people know about it? When’s the last time we’ve seen Paul & Stephanie together in public?
  3. They’d do it if a 3rd party decided to do their own documentary.
  4. Isn’t Shawn sticking around, and possibly running it? Is Albert still head trainer?
  5. I should really get around to selling my ROH collection before a company buys the tape library, and throws it up online.
  6. I’m so disappointed that gimmick is now just Black’s. Lights out should’ve always been exclusive to debuts.
  7. If it’s Taz in character, and Regal in old character, then you might have something.
  8. I mean his motivation right now is to get a match Vs. MJF. He’s being a little insincere in his phrasing.
  9. That’s actually what they did. Punk derailed him by causing him to lose by DQ.
  10. My cable did the same thing. Probably because the show has the same exact info. On Xfinity they did change the image from Cody giving Dustin an abdominal stretch to almost the entire cast of AEW with Hangman as the big head in the middle.
  11. Ehhh… I expect it to be about the same. But they’ll still have a solid spot in the top five.
  12. I mean just mainstream wrestling promotions.
  13. Being off coke probably has changed Regal a lot. When’s the last time he’s done physical comedy bits?
  14. I’m sure they are being paid well by AEW, but think about it. They are getting a full-time deal by a major North American promotion, and are allowed to work a lucha superstar schedule. That’s a lot of money to give up. I’ve seen a lucha show that had LA Park’s kid teaming up with him, against the Wagner’s. Thing was, it obviously wasn’t LA Park, it was most likely some guy his son got so they made the same amount of money if he actually had been there, then split part of it with that dude.
  15. But it’s the Lucha Bros. They book 10 dates a week in Mexico. All Luchadors who are considered a hot commodity, barely stop. To get into a position like this takes years in that country, and as long as they can breathe, they’ll never give up being always in demand.
  16. Typical luchador… Will be back in a jiff. A small percentage of them break their necks, and die.
  17. Remember when Christian was considered the ugly one cuz he looked middle aged at 25? Now he’s middle aged, and he’s considered hansom as fuck, while Edge turned into Jimmy Valiant.
  18. I still watch Benoit Vs. Sullivan at SuperBrawl 7 with a grin from ear to ear even knowing what ultimately happened.
  19. I didn’t even notice it when it happened, and when somebody reposted it in gif format with a barf emoji. I thought they were just upset about the title change. I definitely got it on the third viewing.
  20. This hasn’t been brought up, but now because of that match, and the Britt match, the expectations of what a women’s wrestler is supposed to be able to do has changed in mainstream US wrestling. So if you’re a young women training, don’t think that promoters won’t ask you if you’re a person willing to blade for a match.
  21. Well I guess it’s good that they signed all these guys just in case something like this happened. Great world title match. But I’m kinda left wondering who is next for Hangman? Looking at the rankings you’d think Adam Cole, but it’s rumored that Cole will be involved in a multi man tag match, so I’m not certain that’s happening. Wardlow is apparently tied up in the planned ladder match. Then you have Scorpio, and Hobbs. Two guys that aren’t being pushed like contenders on TV, but I can see them getting a shot still. Why? Because it’s obvious what will be the biggest selling point of the PPV. That being Punk Vs. MJF. So giving Hangman an obvious win of a title match wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, especially if the reign itself might go a little long. Also Hangman is to me one of the best workers(if not the best) in the company. He’s got that Superman ability in the ring that always produces the best matches, and solid crowd reactions in the company no matter the show he works on. He’s the Kenta Kobashi of AEW. Of the two contenders, I prefer Scorpio. Hobbs, and Hangman already had a fun Dynamite match. Scorp Vs. Page I believe has never happened ever, and I’m sure Lambert has an interesting promo for a potential one on one PPV match if given the opportunity heading into the big show. Fuck up aside, I thought the tag title match was awesome. Sucks about the injury, but rewatching the match, it’s a surprise it didn’t happen on the tornillo where funny enough he landed awkwardly on the left arm. TBS title match was sadly messy. At this moment the right person won, but technically I think Thunder should’ve been the champion. I guess eventually that will happen. I would personally have Jade choreographer her matches at this point, but I have a feeling certain people in the company wouldn’t be happy with working matches like that.
  22. Steven Regal trending just below Rocco.
