    Oh calm down, it's only like 24 out of 53 or something, that's not even 50 %. Unless you apply Steiner math, then it's probably 127 % or something.
  2. I second this sentiment. I really didn't like both War Games Matches until Baszler walked in and everything she did looked believeable and had meaning. After that, I found at least the Women's Wargames to be okay. Edit for elaboration: My general mindset for Wrestling psychology is, that a match and the things done in it should build sympathy for at least one of the two competitors. It shouldn't just be to get your shit in. If your audience has Classic heel v babyface structures imprinted on them, the heel should work as such. Both Wargames failed miserably as such imo. The instances that saved the Women's Match for me were (first and foremost) Baszler knowing what she was doing and the turn (which came across legitimately great). Athletic wrestling can also create sympathy for one and often even both wrestlers, but to me it feels as if it often fails to do so by everyone going all out all the time without taking the proper time to emphasize meaning of the crazily impressive stuff they did. That's why I see most of today's so called MOTYCs as great Athletic Contests with often mediocre to bad psychology.
  3. I'm not really sure if Cornette had trouble with womens main eventing. Intergender stuff might be a different beast.

    Quite the group..Homefield advantage might help us out. Iceland would be cool, albeit very tough.
  5. Hakuho managed to extend his record of top division Bashos won to 43, capturing the very last tournament of (t)his decade with a 14-1 scoreline. Mitakeumi will very likely fall out of sanyaku for the first time in almost 3 years, ending a run of 18 Basho in the upper echolon of the banzuke after a 6-9. We will very likely loose Hokutofuji and Endo aswell. Asanoyama and Abi make good cases for Sekiwake promotions, Abi should get the nod should they only be willing to promote one of the two. Enho made Kachikoshi with an 8-7 score, securing his needed 8th win on senshuraku, the final day. He will face top tier guys in his next campaign, although he'll be lucky enough. Asanoyama with another Double digit win while beating top competition, yet not on an official Ozeki run. A huge return to salaried ranks awaits us aswell: Terunofuji, former Ozeki and Makuuchi Yusho winner, also known as the heel who prevented Kotoshogiku from getting back to Ozeki with a blatant henka, won the Makushita Yusho with a clean 7-0 from Makushita #10. He had dropped as far down the rankings as the second lowest division after bad injury luck. It is not likely that he will reach former heights, but as the first ever Ozeki to even try to get back into the paid ranks after dropping out I felt praise is in order. It will be interesting to see how he will deal with fighting every day.

  7. I think it looks atrocious in the promo shot that was also posted in the November Wrestling Thread, where I reacted accordingly. It comes off way better in the photo where Zayn is holding it and doesn't look bad compared to other designs.
  8. For Real?! Oh wow... The only way I'll begrudgingly accept this is if a little child won a contest or something. Edit: I saw an in ring photo in the belts thrwad where this looked way better than in the promo shot above, so I take my statement back. A little at least.
  9. I really like that move. Simple and effective imo.
  10. Day 11 had come and gone, Hakuho remains the sole leader with a 10-1 score followed by Asanoyama with 9-2. Both man are performing quite well, Hakuho seems determined to get his first title in the Reiwa era. Mitakeumis Ozeki hopes are dashed. He picked up a sixth loss today and with Asanoyama and Hakuho left to fight, there is a distinct possibility for him to drop out of sanyaku for the first time in 17 or so basho. It would be a shame, but he simply doesn't sèem to be at his best. Takakeisho picked up win number 8 today, putting him out of risk regarding a possible kadoban status in January. He seems to have shaken off the rust and is looking good. Maybe he can spoil Hakuho's party a little? We had the ultra rare mitokorozeme a few days ago. Not as rare but still not an everyday occurance was Shodai's utchari he used today to get his eight's win over a game Sadanoumi. See below: https://youtu.be/OcyS7bdDsr0
  11. Can he really win this, though. If he stops tweeting, everyone is going to say he stopped because Punk told him to. If he doesn't stop, he will still tweet. Well, okay, first possibility will make us winners, I assume.
  12. Thank you, simply for the Information, but also very much for helping me putting my uneasy mind in regards to whether I overinterprete stuff or not to rest. And while I never get racism in first place, it gets even more absurd when the reasoning is "This dude would have killed my parents or grandparents, but he also hates Jews/Communists/Homosexuals, so I kind of like his concepts!" That being said, as somebody who does know very little about Lucha, there is always the chance, outside of the memoribilia collecting, that it is first and foremost a gimmick á la Fritz von Erich or Baron von Raschke, I'd assume.
  13. That police Uniform looks an awful lot like a Nazi-Uniform, although this may be my German-school-System history lessons pulling mind tricks on me. Doesn't Stan Hansen have a Japanese wife? I seem to recall this being mentioned during that Network Show with JBL. She was not big and fat, and they didn't have nine kids.
  14. Konishiki, how cool is that! Sounds like you had a blast, happy to hear that. Quick look around Sumo DB indicates that the wrestlers you saw in action had their career highs in Makushita, which is pretty respectable. Konishiki as a former Ozeki at the Event is amazing of course.
