    The rip-off is great in its own way, but the opinion that it's actually better than The Chase is so white it just booked a spa weekend.

    If that’s the case, then chop me up, and build White House II in DC.

    I love the knock off. It’s so clean, and catchy.

    Who in AEW would be the best choice to slide kick a flipping Kemonito to the floor? 

    It’s definitely Miro. 

    Who would be willing to threaten rape on KeMonito like Tarzan Boy did one time?

  3. Not just that, I also think those people are total casual marks. If you were a casual mark, and only watched wrestling in its heyday, who would you want to work with? Lance Archer, or Jericho?

    Also Jericho is crazy enough to take offense from an untrained worker to prove to these marks it can work.

    That's what Tony Khan said on Busted Open. That it's timed intervals, but it can end at any time.

    That’s how I remember it working. Two guys start, and then you get other people entering. 

    It’s my least favorite match gimmick they’ve had. I mean I already don’t like multi person ladder matches, just adding a rumble gimmick to it is worse.

    Hopefully this one being in front of a crowd gives the performers motivation, and improves it.

    I'm curious at what point it became a Chris Jericho program since it sure seemed like a Lance Archer joint at first.

    If I have to guess future booking I would assume it was done because working Jericho was the only way they get these mixed martial artist on board to work a potential match.

  6. No joking… If KeMonito became the mascot of the LB’s, they’d be over forever.

    I can see him wearing a PENTA get up.

    Speaking of lucha’s… did AAA clear up whatever is going on with their legal troubles in the states? I thought AEW was an allowed to display AAA logos on their TV until the legal troubles were resolved.

  7. I forget the Casino Ladder Match has individual entrances.

    Unless the match ends before the Joker comes out, I think this gimmick match might be a little too out there.

    I'm maintaining optimism for a ZSJ push on the basis that NJPW are starting to realise the value of a talented foreigner who isn't only wrestling for them because there wasn't an English speaking alternative offering their pay grade when their contract was negotiated.

    Well it’s no secret that New Japan’s popularity is because they’ve cultivated a foreign roster of talent. Even native fans have always been into that part of the company. The pandemic exposed that further, and covering for it has created a weakness. If you look at the “Popular Video” rankings, the B-Block videos tend to pack that list, more than A-Block. Without question ZSJ is the only foreigner with name recognition, and credibility currently working in this tournament. I mean it’s probably less than years past, but you’d have to take advantage of whatever you got if you’re New Japan. 

    I think what will hurt New Japan again is what they’ll do after this G1. I’m reminded of the 00’s where they ran packed G1 houses, and interest had gone up, but fans disappeared again when they started running regular tours because the cards, and actual matches got worse. We’ve seen how they’ve run these shows before the G1. Running two Dome shows again doesn’t strike me as a good idea. They better pray things improve with travel to Japan.

    All of you complaining about the vertebreaker not being the finish: LOOK AT THE STATE OF IT! 

     

    There is a debate about the vertebreaker? If it looks like that, you can’t win with it.

  10. To be fair, the Midnight’s rip-off is actually way better than the original. They should’ve just completely re-did the rip-off. But then who owns it? I’ve never heard a version of it that wasn’t pulled from TV.

    TK, for the love of all that is good, please let it be you that swayed Jungle Kyona away from Stardom. 🙏

    I honestly don’t think he even knows who that is.

    good for her by the way. She is probably the best worker they’ve ever had, but I also can see why they never pushed her ultimately. It also didn’t help that while she went down with both the injuries and depression, they ended up finding about 20 other attractive women with superstar potential to sign. So her chances of being in the top 5 pushed stars of the company completely fell apart.

  12. Stern was pretty good at throwing out machismo to his male guests to brag about shit, and open themselves up to things they wouldn’t say in an ABC interview. Go watch his Phil Hartman interviews. That’s the most Phil is open about his rocky relationship history, and threw up red flags about what would ultimately be his last. Hartman comes off as very unlikable in them, and you realize he might’ve bit off more than he could chew in that marriage.

    Not saying he was this tactful interviewer, or that the interviewee was completely on the level. Just that his personality, and his desire to push boundaries made him stumble onto weirdly honest interviews about a subjects twisted psyche. 

    I don’t know how good he still is, but I’d be surprised if he still gets into dark places with these guests anymore. Just because Stern isn’t that same person he was in the 90’s.

  13. It was the right move to give it to Sammy. Everytime they’ve switched the TNT belt it always feels like it comes out of nowhere, and that’s how it should be.

    Miro had been coming off a little too unstoppable, and you sort of felt it here. It wasn’t until he hit the GTH that I thought he had a chance because that’s his killshot. They wouldn’t have him miss his 630 after hitting the killshot, would they? They didn’t… A very great Dynamite tonight.
