  1. I'm pretty bummed that it's on a channel that somehow isn't available in north Scotland. (well, I assume it's on Sky but not on Freeview) As for whether you can watch it overseas? Well, I dunno. Try this link and if it works you can watch the show live (which would be Friday nights, 9pm GMT, so 5pm EST (until the clocks change in America and the time difference goes back to 5 hours, whenever that is). If the first 2 episodes are up online I certainly don't know where though.
  2. Huh, that's surprising. The reaction I've seen around Gage since his return has been overwhelmingly positive.
  3. It's so weird. Shit, even if you happen to like Russo's godawful vision of pro wrestling which features little to no actual wrestling, he doesn't seem worth fawning over. I like current NJPW but I'm not searching Twitter for anyone saying Gedo sucks.
  4. Because they'd have to a modicum of editing to remove or dub the music which Sinclair have probably decided isn't worth the time involved because why would anyone want to watch pre-Bullet Club ROH? I dunno how it wouldn't pop a few hundred subs at least but I have no idea what their margins are.
  5. This wouldn't be so dumb if most (all?) of the DVDs for the Gabe era weren't out of print. There are so many fucking hours of Bryan Danielson matches you can sell this service on. We're talking about one of the biggest names in wrestling this decade. Never mind all the other names who are big enough to sell this service on the back off. CM Punk. AJ Styles. Samoa Joe. Kevin Steen. El Generico. Claudio Castagnoli. Tyler Black. Nigel McGuinness even. It seems like it should be criminal that it's easier to watch IWA Mid South or Chikara or CZW from 2002-2006 than it is to watch Ring of Honor, the superindy. Yeah, some matches are on the Youtube, yeah, some work would have to be done to dub licensed music out which would suck in its own way, but there's no way they don't sell more subs off the back of that part of the archive where ROH had so much more buzz. Give me a legal way to watch these shows that doesn't involve scouring Ebay.
  6. I really loved that Ultramantis Black EP. Really hope there is some sort of follow up to it, it was just good solid fun. In fact I think Mr Zero was one of the guys who played on that record with UMB.
  7. Eh, speaking as someone with politics similar to Zack, he's hardly unique in having to make compromises to get along in life.We live in a capitalist society, many employers are at best amoral but you have to put food on the table and a roof over your head. And he's in his 30s now, the additional security of an extended contract with one of the biggest employers in his field is presumably good to have. Life as a freelancer is going to have to be pretty stressful.
  8. It's what you get for returning Piers Morgan to us instead of blasting him into space.
  9. The embarassing "I can't believe I didn't recognise him" for me was Samoa Joe. I could recognise almost everyone there except Massaro, Frantz & him. Oh, and Donovan Morgan but that surely doesn't count because you can't see half his face. But with Joe...I dunno, have I just never seen him smile? Now I see it it's really obvious & I can't work out how I never saw it.
  10. I've always thought he was a giant unflushable turd, but the actual moment I realised I despised him was the first time I heard that song he did which was basically a mashup of Werewolves of London & Sweet Home Alabama. God that was rancid. It's staggering just how utterly insipid it is. All Summer Long. Look it up, I don't want to go on Youtube and accidentally hear a bit of it.
  11. Presumably whoever breaks the rules could get fined, and the guy who is acting in the Rockin' Rebel role of being the guy with the promoters license in Louisiana could certainly face repercussions. Which I believe is Luke Hawx? Theoretically if you do get fined and refuse to pay it then you might find it hard to work in any state with an AC which is a member of the ABC who regulates wrestling. But I'm just spitballing, could be nothing.
  12. It's getting late and I'm getting old, there's absolutely a reason not to get rowdy.
  13. I assure you, as someone who was deep into following MMA at the time Fallon Fox was fighting that there was plenty of outrage at Mitrione at the time. And also a lot of people challenged Tate & Rogan for their takes as not being scientific.
  14. So happy to get to see EVIL again. Hope Taichi pins Okada in the main even though the odds of that happening must be about 20000/1
  15. Shrug. Watching wrestling in a vacuum has never been my thing. I find it incredibly hard to give a crap about the best match ever without some reason to have an emotional connection to what I'm watching. That's really hard with old stuff that is usually presented out of context on Youtube or wherever. Meanwhile ZSJ is working now, in places where I can actually see him perform live (which is a bit of a knock on the old WoS chaps), doing things which aren't really done all that much these days, is easy to watch and fun. No, he's not doing much new but that hardly makes him unique in professional wrestling. He does what he does well, that's enough for me. I don't need to know the guy who influenced the guy who influenced ZSJ to enjoy him. There's only so many hours in a week I'm going to watch wrestling.
