  1. Tyson looks like he just came out of a fast, ol' chicken legs
  2. Eddie's loose style was nice but I also like the classic crisp interview promo style with Dave by the podium, Aldis gave an amazing Flair promo hyping EVERYTHING and I liked Eli Drake's Tommy Rich promo
  3. how wild to have Claudio Castagnoli vs. Tommy End as one of the top things in Vinceland right now, wXw thangs

    Yo I only just finished night 4 and Taichi/Naito just literally recreated the ganso bomb, how cool was that. I popped like a little kid when Naito busted out the Emerald Flowsion too, it was such a nice deep little reference in response to the Dangerous T subplot

    He knows a lot but his voice always is a bit underwhelming next to Kelly and Rocky. The shows where he did seem to be allowed to talk, it just kind of stood out that you had these two natural-sounding announcers and one -no offense- smarky indy commentator softly interjecting the occasional comment I can see why a TV company would prefer a totally polished product But I don't know shit about him, how did he get on the team?

    NJPW G1 2019

    Almost done watching day 4 and it's been so nice, I haven't watched this much wrestling in ages. I'm kind of feeling the G-1 fatigue and find myself looking at my phone more and more, but that's part of the grind of the tournament. I'm loving all the fresh match-ups like KENTA vs everyone (looking so good after all that time basically gone, I popped for the first time he did that fake kneedrop into a heelish face kick) and Mox has been really putting in the work, showing he can hang with all sorts of different people/styles. How sweet was Mox/Cobb? Yano is awesome for the comic relief between all the long, grueling beef on beef violence, I wish he was in both blocks I'm feeling Goto more than ever, and I'm especially into Sanada and his stoic charisma. The English announce team can get a little giggly (ohh the turnbuckle is called Mary today hihi) but their storytelling and pbp is generally super on point and I like how a lot of workers interact with them. Lance Archer is looking fucking amazing, he's so agile and explosively quick for a what, 9 foot guy, and he is such a perfect fit for Suzukigun. I'm really amazed New Japan has a million stables, and each of them is just a perfect unit with their own unique character and totally fitting rosters.This booking is so deep and solid, maybe it's not necessarily the best individual workers ever assembled on a roster but as a whole I feel like this is the zenith of what pro-wrestling can be. One sad thing is that I wanted to take a little break from the G-1 and I put on Fight for the Fallen, and MAN that more choreographed stuff really does not hold up after watching so much amazing, dynamic, interesting work. It just doesn't do it for me. And the commentary, yeesh.
  7. lol I just wrote an entire G-1 post and put it in this very not G-1 thread plsdelete
  8. just sharing this blessed Hase image from backstage at Choshu's retirement

    I loved his bump where he dropped his arms like a for real knockout, but in the replay the impact looked pretty bad..

    Oh actually the only thing I really didn't like was the GTS to the armpit that was really too bad after that near perfect match and a little blemish on KENTA's return to non-cartoon wrestling

    I marked out so hard during this show, especially for Tana/Okada. What a huge response from the US crowd, the hair on my arms just stood up straight from the goosebumps. I don't mind the arena, they set it up great and the place was still super packed for a Japanese promotion going to the other side of the world. You just had this huge crowd of people who all seemed totally in the know about NJPW and were having a big fat party sitting there in their New Japan merch and waving their Ingobernables beach towels Of course a fully sold out arena show in the US would be super cool but I really enjoyed the more intimate feel of the semicircle and that big stage and entrance ramp. What a dope card and what a ridiculous main event
  12. Charlotte looks a bit fazed because of the fans' heckling sometimes. I remember that from announcing. Sometimes it can really throw you off.
  13. loved the little footnote about the "bygone era" not being so kind to black people "the club" reminded me of when TNA had "the band", and not in a good way
  14. You don't have a guy come into your organisation and let him go over at THE SHOW. He came out of that feud looking super strong, without actually really damaging Jericho. Sometimes it's like some fans just want their dude to win like every big match they're in, which is not how wrestling has ever worked. I am actually really surprised AJ is getting the push he is, right out of the gate.
