  1. Someone mentioned Jinsei Shinzaki earlier. I was such a fan of Hakushi, in particular his matches with Bret, that when I first started tape trading he was one of the first guys I sought out. That led me to Michinokou Pro then Osaka Pro and onwards. In hindsight most of the modern junior heavyweight style was kind of born in those mid-late 1990s promotions. I feel like Marufuji & Kenta then evolved a lot of that for Noah. God I loved the early 2000s trading scene.
  2. [Rowdy Roddy Piper has just pulled Jake "The Snake" Roberts off of Ric Flair] Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan, Announcer : I never thought I'd say this, but thank you Piper. It's a kilt. It's not a skirt, it's a kilt. [Piper then nails Flair] Bobby 'The Brain' Heenan, Announcer : You no good creep! You skirt-wearing freak! It's not a kilt, it's a skirt. - Listed on Bobby Heenan’s IMDB. To be fair you could quote that whole match.
  3. William Regal on Jericho just dropped. They were not lying about his health issues. My word! He’s come through some dark times.
  4. Janela essentially got replaced with Eddie Kingston. Both guys with hardcore indie fanbases coming in, both deserved a shot on a big TV show. Eddie can do everything Joey does but much better and then some. That said Janela / Sonny Kiss will always be a highlight of lower card / Dark AEW for me.
  5. https://www.si.com/.amp/mma/2022/03/15/-ufc-fighter-kevin-holland-stops-houston-restaurant-shooting Kevin Holland takes down a shooter of a different kind!
  6. “Hey Heaven, you know who I am, but you don’t know why I’m here” RIP Scott Hall.
  7. My current pick is Penta. I get he spams his taunt and his performances fluctuate in the ring, but there is something so goofy, loveable and sinister about him all in one. He puts a smile on my face every time I see him.
  8. So the race to become the first AEW triple crown winner just got a new contender with Scorpio winning the belt. Omega, Page, Scorpio all have 2/3. Will be interesting to see who does it. A title v title between Page and Scorp, and with that a triple crown win, would be interesting!
  9. I’d agree about Jarrett being far from the worst, from his early days through USWA, initial WWF and WCW he was largely very good and enjoyable. Although I suppose it’s dependent on how much you like Memphis wrestling as that was always more his style. It’s 1999 WCW onwards that sours it. The decision to make him a main event guy, because Russo, seemed to unite wrestling fans against him in a way I don’t think I’ve ever seen since. It generally carried on from then right through to his current GCW run (MMA Jeff excepted as everyone knows how great that was!) As Conrad always reminds him, Jeff also has the unique position of being a member of the worst iterations of all time classic stables. Horsemen (debatable), Bullet Club, nwo. My answers would be Tom Zenk or Paul Roma. Very similar in some respects, both great looking guys, always on TV & PPV’s over WCW and WWF through the 80’s and 90’s. Neither were truly the worst wrestler in the world but they never done anything other than just kinda “be there”, often standing next to much better tag partners. I must have seen every match they had during that period and can’t tell you one memorable thing.
  10. On a rewatch, Wardlow really came off like a huge star. He looked incredible in his match and his involvement in Punk / MJF.
  11. Jade’s outfit was great but reminded me so much of WCW’s Blood Runs Cold. With Glacier previously being “all elite” during one of the battle Royale’s, and Jim Mitchell having made a brief appearance, we only need two new guys in the Mortis and Wrath gimmicks and we are good to go!
  12. I worked with a dude who strolled in late constantly, when Vince was telling that story it reminded me of him. He never once apologised, would login at his desk and it never seemed to get brought up. Then one day he got caught selling coke and pills and got removed from the premises. I suspect our team manager might also have been a customer of his. Vince was much cooler than that guy.
  13. We did find out that Michael Cole is a horrible human being ?
  14. AEWROH debut show has to have a Zombie out first.
  15. Great now I’ve got an image of a cinema where every single employee is William Regal. ”Popcorn and a Mountain Dew? You’ll have some bloody boiled sweets and a cup of tea, you ruffian!”
  16. “Hey pal, it’s breakfast time, Get me a steak” “Uh sorry vince, our budget doesn’t cover steak” ”ugh, get me a double cheeseburger, but hold the bun, and the cheese”
  17. Post <media conglomerate> buy out Vince merch on PWT is going to be epic.
  18. I don’t think they have been Boys for a while, I’d take umbrage with that one. Hardy Men it is.
  19. He looks like Jarrett! “I’m the greatest country singer that ever lived, B-R-O haha C-K-L haha E-S-N-A-R”
  20. TK.s HUGE announcement is going to be that he has signed the hottest free agent in the businesss…. Cody!
  21. Keith Lee in a promotion where Mark Henry and Big Show have active roles behind the scenes can only be a good thing. I’ve got a good feeling about this. Give me Miro v Lee to determine King of The Modern Day Hosses please TK
