  1. Found this while searching for old indy stuff on YouTube. It's from the old HWA in Cincinnati in 2006: Chad Allegra (Karl Anderson) & Rocky Romero vs. Nigel McGuinness & Chad Collyer
  2. Takeshita vs Claudio was just awesome! Definitely the best match on any of the Battle of the Belts specials so far. I’d say last night was probably the best overall BotB episode they’ve done.
  3. I think Drew will win at the UK PPV. No reason for him not too. However, I don’t think he’ll have it for long and they’ll switch it back to Roman at either Extreme Rules or the Saudi show. That way, we still get Roman vs Cody at Mania (presuming Cody wins the Rumble). Or, alternatively, Drew could hold it until Mania and we get Drew vs Cody at Mania (again, presuming Cody wins the Rumble) if they’re still going for the Roman vs Rock match.
  4. At least they acquired someone. From the few games I’ve watched this summer and based on what I’ve heard about on the local news, they were in need of a catcher since it sounds like Tyler Stephenson has been hit with one injury after another.
  5. Been watching a bunch of old SMASH Wrestling shows that are free on their YouTube channel (including the last show they did before the pandemic put them on hiatus) along with stuff that's on Impact Plus and I've really been enjoying it. They've got their comeback show coming up this weekend with Speedball vs. Alex Shelley as the main event and also Veda Scott and Matt Cross on the card. They've got a lot of good homegrown talent too with Kevin Bennett, John Greed and my favorite Psycho Mike (who's just freakin' awesome!). With that being said, does anyone know if their show on Saturday will be shown anywhere? From watching their old shows, it sounded like they were being taped and then shown on Fight Network (I think) in Canada. If so, is there any way in the states to watch it?
  6. That Nats/Padres trade is just insane!
  7. Really hope Jose Siri gets a chance to shine in Tampa Bay. I’ve liked him ever since he lit up the Midwest League with Dayton in 2017 with that nearly 40-game hitting streak. While I know that success in the minors doesn’t always translate to the majors, hopefully he’ll get some playing time in Tampa and be able to replicate some of that success.
  8. And now this from WrestleVotes on Twitter. First hour commercial free? That’s interesting. Hmmm …
  9. For the first time in a while, I’m genuinely curious about WWE and I actually want to watch Raw. Has anything even been announced for the show tonight though?
  10. I got a message from my mom that some of our cousins near Whitesburg, KY lost everything in the floods down there. I used to go visit with my grandparents when I was a kid as they were from that area. We would drive down for a week or so each summer I was off school and we'd stay with my grandma's brother who lived in a holler called Spring Branch up the side of a mountain near Jeremiah, KY. There were also big family reunions where we'd grill hot dogs, hamburgers, skip rocks and my great uncle would make his famous corn fritters. I remember the little towns down there like Isom, Blackey, Fleming-Neon and Jenkins. Those were some fun times as a kid. It's horrible to see what's happened down there with all the flooding. I don't know if anyone has seen pictures of the flooding from there but it's terrifying.
  11. The Reds traded Tyler Naquin and Phillip Diehl to the Mets for some prospects last night. I’m guessing their sell-off has begun? Guessing Castillo is probably next, but from what I’ve been reading, it sounds like pretty much most everyone (except for Votto) is available and they’re heading for 100 or more losses. Like I’ve said previously, I haven’t kept up with baseball at all this year so besides Castillo, Mahle, Drury, and Moustakas, who else would be on the trade block for them?
  12. Really liked Sammy Guevara vs Dante Martin. But to be honest … I liked Skye Blue even more. She looked smokin’ hot (at least in my opinion she did)! (EDIT: Didn’t know about the rule of posting during live shows. Sorry y’all!)
  13. My posting around here has really dropped off the past few weeks, probably because work has just been kicking my one-legged butt recently. The beverage merchandising team I’m on is very small (like seven people) and we have one person who got promoted and is moving to a different role. With them training in their new role, me and the other admin have picked up extra duties plus we’re training someone on the basics to help fill in when we get overwhelmed. Yeah, it’s stressful right now but we’ll be fine! Anyway, I said that to say that kinda been checked out on here recently. Because of work, just been tired and just haven’t really been motivated to jump on and check the board. I’ll still add some thoughts when I can but most of my time I have to check out the board or watch wrestling is on the weekends.
  14. I’m excited for tonight’s episode! Should be fun with a lot of cool matchups!
  15. The Boys are aka the Tate Twins, Brandon and Brent. They’re also known as the Bad News Boyz and wrestled for mostly for New South Wrestling and OVW. They’ve also had a few spots on Dark and were part of the Crockett Cup this year.
  16. Only thing I could think of it might morph into would be Rush & Andrade vs Dragon Lee & Dralistico. Speaking of Andrade, anyone think there will be any shenanigans with him in the Jay Lethal match to tie in the fact that their on opposing teams for the Flair retirement match next weekend? Also, what closes the show? Gresham vs Claudio because it’s the world title match? Or Joe vs Lethal because it’s had the most build? Or FTR vs Briscoes II?
  17. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before but … I have a Theory that might happen!
  18. Like Vince or not … this is absolutely huge news. Does this mean he gives up creative too? And do his cronies (Prichard, Kevin Dunn, etc.) go too?
  19. I've been really busy this week and haven't had time to watch much wrestling aside from Dynamite. But I did pre-order the PPV for tomorrow night and I am EXCITED!! I did manage to squeeze in the preview show on my lunch break yesterday since it was a work from home day and that got me really hyped. I'm gonna order a giant pizza (or make one if I find a good one at the store tomorrow), get me a 2 Liter of strawberry soda and enjoy the hell out of this show tomorrow!
  20. Dale Torborg probably. I think his wrestling career was longer that his baseball career! I assume by “The Mayor”, you’re talking about former Reds first baseman Sean Casey, right? He’s not to be confused with the other Sean Casey who wrestled for HWA and teamed with BJ Whitmer for a while (I think? That was a long time ago). Baseball Sean Casey did make an appearance at one or two of the Pillman Shows though. I know he was at 2000 because I have a program from that show with his autograph on it. Don’t remember if he was at the 2001 show.
  21. Good on them for revamping Honor Club. It wasn’t very user friendly and was missing a good bit of the archives from 2007-09 plus the HDNet episodes (which I’m not ever sure they own). ROH should follow Impact’s lead and run monthly “Honor Club Exclusive” specials on the months where they’re not having a PPV. Is it possible that TK uses Honor Club for the AEW archives as well? I’d say yes if he can’t work out a deal with Warner/Discovery. That plus ROH specials would definitely make it worth the $9.99 a month.
  22. The only thing I really was interested in was from Rampage this week was the ROH Title match. I thought it was fine and I'm all for Claudio vs. Gresham at the PPV. Otherwise, the rest of the show bored me.
  23. I signed up for an account on New Japan World since the first two nights are free to watch. Finished the prelim tags on Night 1 so far and they were fun. My favorite of those was the Bushi/Naito/Shingo vs Yoshi-Hashi/Ishii/Goto match. I’m going to pick up at the Tanahashi vs Henare match later on. I’m enjoying this so far!
  24. Update: I won two bucks! Lol So I cashed out and bought myself two bottles of Sunkist orange since the liquor store had them at a buck each.
