  1. We're not going to lockdowns unless Delta hits a 5% lethality rate or something. Mask mandates will likely return for a bit (and already have in safe blue areas), but we're reopened, even if it's a new normal, I don't see us closing down again, especially since the vaccine is widely avaliable and makes COVID about as risky as the flu to vaccinated folks. (The flu can still kill you too) I could see attendance taking a hit if people get scared, while Delta is raging I don't want to travel to any big events/shows , and I am looking at cancelling the thing I was planning in November, which saddens me, but I get a few more months to work on myself which is good. BTW- please get vaccinated if you haven't! Japan might shutdown briefly, but I think they'll reopen once they get a good amount of vaccinations- vaxxing has picked up in Japan, and I think all the NJPW and DDT/TJPW folks have gotten their first doses at least.
  2. Just saw AEW got a TV deal with India just now. https://lockerroom.in/blog/view/AEW-India-Eurosport
  3. How about Miro/Hangman, perhaps as a trilogy. I kinda think Hangman holding the TNT belt for a good while, then challenging Kenny again as he rebuilds confidence would work.
  4. I do think there would be a real risk if Page beat Omega at all out that his reign would be overshadowed by Punk/Bryan, ironically CM Punking page where Punk's WWE reign was treated as midcard even though he held the belt for a year.
  5. It has to be. Looks just like her.
  6. I'd be fine with Omega losing to someone else, then Page beats that someone, but has impostor syndrome because he didn't beat Omega.
  7. I'd want that Freya woman they used on Dark once. She'd be a good bodyguard type.
  8. Right now AEW has a lot of younger acts who could do more with Jericho's spot than what Jericho is doing with it. Jericho's next act needs to be getting Sammy over. MJF doesn't have a good history with loser leaves matches- though his MLW one was killer and convinced me MJF could put the working boots on when needed.
  9. We're going to get a top rope Judas effect.
  10. Tana is coming. Loved Archer sporting his old SZKG shirt tonight.
  11. Just saw Ryo Mizunami over in Japan has been hospitalized due to COVID+pneumonia. (apparently a wave of it hit joshi independents over there)
  12. Jay was legitimized back during his first G1 with the wins over Tana and Okada to open it up. Pandemic-era NJPW is just not good outside of SZKG stuff. I'd even take DOUKI over EVIL right now.
  13. I went to that same event! Was able to knock Tana off my bucket list. All that's left now is SZKG.
  14. Phillipines was I think first in 97 years, they did get one before they were even a country.
  15. She's the cute psychopath!
  16. THe DDT/NOAH family definitely won't, there's bad blood there, and a lot of other promotions see working with NJPW as not being in their long-term interest due to some of the tactics NJPW used in the past.
  17. It's too bad it couldn't be LA Park doing this instead, while telling us how to make some awesome carnitas.
  18. It's not like AEW is afraid to do this. They've run face vs face a lot. Shida vs Tay, Darby vs Silver, Cody vs a lot of folks, Mox vs Darby. Morality in AEW works a lot like NJPW to me, it's sliding scale. I would have cheered Nyla over Britt though.
  19. Having Archer to lose to Hikuleo when Hikuleo has a bunch of BC homies around (Jay, Chris Bey will likely be there, maybe GOD, and no SZKG around for Archer) makes sense.
  20. He hasn't had too many opportunities to shine yet- but he's big and has potential. He was a YL in BC for a bit, then worked RevPro some, and NJPW and ROH a little. As for Baker - I suspect Yuka is her next feud, and we'll see how fan reaction is for that. Britt's reaction is going to depend on opponent. I guarantee Tay would get cheered over Britt (Tay is probably the 3rd biggest pure babyface in the company after Hangman and Jungle Boy). Stat probably as well.
  21. Archer winning is good for AEW- because it was just the type of upset win AEW needs to do a bit more. Mox can take this loss easily, Archer gets a lot scarier. and yeah Nyla/Baker was meh, not terrible, but meh, and I think it's both of them not being in the top tier of AEW women when it comes to in-ring. Charlotte crowd isn't going to turn on Jericho. I kinda wish for TDM's the 10 count would be as fast as the refs counted in World of Sport. Might make it less of a spectacle, but it would keep things moving.
  22. To me, Nyla's good in short matches, but will gas (most big wrestlers will gas) Great promo, good squasher. She's definitely someone I'd want to be friends with IRL if she was like, a local at something I went to. She seems legit cool.
  23. Archer and Nyla are gatekeepers more than JTTS. The guys Archer loses to are main eventers. The actual JTTS's like Janela get eaten up in 2 minutes by Archer.
