  1. Seeing them both for the first time, I bought ZSJ as an opponent for Ishii, despite the size difference. Honestly, the only issue is I didn't really but into him being able to submit Ishii, but that's not a knock on him, and more a credit to Ishii. Also really loved GoD, but I don't necessarily agree that Tama was dancing and singing like the Usos. He was gangster as fuck. Those two have a great look and should go far. Honestly, the biggest thing I noticed about New Japan is that everyone either looks like a serious wrestler, or looks cool as fuck, which is important to me. Cool as fuck is what I want from my wrestling. They almost lost me with that, but I think it ended up working due to the excellent work by RPG Vice. I thought Tanahashi/Gunn was perfectly acceptable wrestling (I admittedly have low standards, though). A little disappointed I didn't get to see Tanahashi against a better opponent because of his hype, but they had a fine match and Gunn was fun playing with the crowd.
  2. Tonight was my first exposure to New Japan, and I was definitely impressed. I never knew I needed Ishii in my life, but I'll fix that shortly. Bucks/RPG was amazing in that it got me to buy into a Bucks match. I enjoy their schtick, but, overkill is not my cup of tea. Having it explained as them killing off RPG made it make sense, though. Probably enjoyed the 8-Man most, that was just tons of fun. Tags forever. Saw Liger live, so I've got that going for me. Great show, I'll have to check out more.
  3. The Oakland Raiders. Vince is Al Davis. Al is Vince. Big back in the day, slow, steady decline. It's like poetry.
  4. Bobski/Jericho mentions something like 'should be jumpin' too' when he introduced Johnson, so I think that was intentional.
  5. Hahahahahaha, fuck you Frank Reich!

    2016 NFL Draft

    A lot of people are hating on the Raiders' draft, but it mostly seems to be because people still think they're absolute dirt. The Connor Cook selection especially should show you were they believe themselves to be, that's a staple of good teams like Green Bay and New England. Really happy with the draft. Probably would have taken Perkins over Washington, but they're different style backs so I can see why they went the direction they did. Super excited about the possibilities on defense next season, they're going to get after people.
  7. N...N...W...W...A...A... West coast invasion! Man, a wrestling promotion consisting of rappers would be the coolest thing ever.
  8. This is the first round I've felt comfortable really voting, since I feel like I have a good grasp of both competitors, and I voted for Sasha Banks because I live in Long Beach and I'm pretty sure I couldn't show my face in the streets if I didn't. Then again, it's also because she's the GOD DAMN BOSS.
  9. The Rams have zero chance of selling out the Coliseum. Not that it's really on them, because it's a massive (93,607, that's over 10,000 more seats than Metlife) stadium that any team in almost any market would have trouble selling out. Honestly, the only way I could see it selling out is if/when they play the Raiders.
  10. I didn't think that Ryan Leaf could fall farther than his time in prison, but, there you go... (aware it's unlikely to actually be him.) I have a ton of wrestling move stories, up to current day, and I'm 33. Part of it is because my brother and I are fans, but I'm pretty much a nerd, so... Anyway, the best one is probably the time some friends and I were drunk, at a party, in a hotel room, and start having a battle royale. I went up top (a ledge next to a bed) for a frog splash, only to jump right into the edge of the ceiling where it changed heights. Just add it to my list of concussions, I think I get something free when I get to a dozen!
  11. Raiders have re-signed Donald Penn, so it looks like they're gearing up to make a run at an AFC West that's ripe for the taking.
  12. At the time of posting this, Rusev vs Cesaro has 91 total votes, and Shirai vs Naito has 57. So 34 people voted on one but not the other... really not an indy board. Well it is hard to get a lot of stuff that you would not have access to or even bother loooking. Like, I am probably the only guy on this board that followed Cedric Alexander because I feel like he is black AJ Styles. I assumed because every winner of these tournaments have been indy dudes and Rey Mysterio(which is awesome because 2009 Rey Mysterio was fucking golden). Every winner, with the exception of Nak, and, in fact, every runner up, has been in WWE at the time of their win. I'd hardly consider D-Bryan and Cesaro to be 'indy guys' at this point.
  13. Sean Smith is an Oakland Raider, and the hype train might just become pants-free.
  14. Man, I'm already having premonitions of the Raiders winning the West, losing in like, the second round, and then leaving for San Antonio just when they're getting good.
  15. Bruce Irvin is going to be an Oakland Raider, so Brock Lobster might want to consider signing with Houston so he doesn't get killed.
