  1. Haven't checked in here in a while but man I really should have! Loads of things I've picked out to add to my watch list.
  2. Incredible, memorable show. This is the only time in wrestling history that we’ve had two five star matches back to back. It may never happen again. These two matches were beyond special and the fact that they happened one after another was amazing. As Tanahashi got the pin, I felt it was the wrong call but I didn’t want to piss & moan about it because the match was so incredible. Then I saw OKada in the aisle with Gedo – it was the most powerful imagery I’ve seen in a long long time, and then the story clicked with me and I realised that Tana winning was 100% the way to go.

  5. Bryan was a hugely impactful performer while he was around and created some really special moments which are easy to forget with how bad the company has become (I myself am a cluprit of this). He was admittedly a very hard candidate to evaluate, as were Devitt and Steen for similar reasons, but we felt top 30 was a fair representation of what he achieved in a short window.
  6. as far as I know. My ballot is nearly ready!
  7. So the latest Fighting Spirit Magazine is out and with it comes the release of the first annual FSM 50. Yes, we're continuing the tradition of the PS 50, and I'm honestly curious to see if the list evokes as much scorn as the PS 50 always did. I was always a huge mark for the list (especially during the 1998-2005 period) and I was excited to be included in the process for this. One thing that I think the PS 50 failed on was actually providing a basis and criteria for the rankings. So here's an idea of the thought process behind these rankings: The main criteria can be described as bell to be

  10. Naito vs. Tanahashi 10/10/2011 Naito had become a serious player due to his impressive showings against Tanahashi (2 wins and a draw out of 5 bouts), and this was his biggest match to date - Sumo Hall main event with the gold on the line. He knows he can beat Tanahashi so he's not shy about going right at the champ. Meanwhile Tanahashi himself knows he can be beaten by this guy so he needs to unload the heavy artillery. For fans of limbwork that pays off, you get a nice little moment towards the end. For fans of big finishes with two wrestlers throwing all they have at one another, you most
  11. just watched this. It was actually a WAR show, and man was that crowd MOLTEN!
