  1. Good fights tonight. Valentina looked like the baddest woman on the planet again. Murphy is a good fighter, but it looked like she had no idea what to do against Valentina. Alexander Volkanovski's submission defense was on point tonight. Took everything Ortega had and just kept coming.
  2. A match of this caliber and a match this momentous, no they didn't. They didn't put on Omega vs. Moxley first.
  3. I think conceptually, a five star system is fine. Breaking it is stupider. Then Meltzer proceeds to shit on matches and then later rate them 4 1/2 snowflakes because the crowd loved it when he rated The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 3 snowflakes. I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous.
  4. This is why I don't like the snowflake system. Danielson has never had a five star match before this? How is that even possible?
  5. They didn't know it was going to kick off the show. Secondly, why not always put the main event or biggest match on first then for the weekly TV events?
  6. Same for me. I had such a bad taste in my mouth after they made Lewis vs. Gane an interim title fight. I needed a bit of a break. But I do really like this card.
  7. https://www.espn.com/mma/story/_/id/32260904/miesha-tate-tests-positive-covid-19-ufc-main-event-ketlen-vieira-off Miesha Tate out of Ketlen Vieira fight after testing positive for COVID-19. Hope she get swell soon.
  8. The ratings and numbers peaked during these segments. The audience didn't know this match was opening the show. When you have a match like this you are not conditioned for it to go on first. So by basically putting your main event on first you are subliminally telling your audience there is no reason to keep tuning in after the match is over.
  9. What I recall about the Undertaker thing is they were doing those mystery present angles, and it just seemed like they needed a somewhat familiar for Undertaker to destroy. I recall Kanyon was briefly involved with the DDP/Undertaker/Sara feud in 2001. Didn't Brother Love make a cameo appearance around this time during this storyline and also get beat up by Undertaker? What I also recall is that about Kanyon's WWE tenure was that Kanyon was another guy from WCW that WWE just didn't know or understand how to use. Also in 2003, it seemed like WWE was mostly using Kanyon in jobber slot roles before getting phased out. Found this match he had with Ultimo Dragon on Sunday Night Heat the night of WWE Vengeance 2003. It's available on WWE's official YouTube channel.
  10. Danielson vs. Omega should've gone on last. That's my one big amateur booker complaint.
  11. Production values for AEW tonight looked and sounded the best they've ever been. Arthur Ashe Stadium looked tremendous on TV. I remember the early days of Dynamite there were a lot production nitpicks I had, especially in terms of the sound and ring mic'ing. I feel they cleared those up tonight. This is a personal pet peeve, but I hate it when the ring action is so mic'ed up you hear this constant clip clopping in the ring. Drives me nuts.
  12. Cody Rhodes thinks he's Captain America when he's really US Agent.
  13. There are some pretty terrible allegations, and I do mean terrible, that have been made regarding the training dojos for NJPW.
  14. Anthony Smith looked really good on Saturday night, but I don't know I like the idea of a rematch with him and Rakic. Seems more like he should be angling for a fight with Jiri Prochazka. I kind of feel like Smith should take Reyes' spot in the top 5 now.
  15. Yes. It's a brand-new reboot, totally from scratch. Think of it similar to the 2012 TMNT animated series. It's also totally its own thing instead of like a vague continuation of past versions, ie say the 2007 animated TMNT movie or Superman Returns.
  16. I actually like the new CG He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series. Aimed more at younger audiences, but I find it very genuine and charming. I don't like all the redesigns, but the animation is fairly good at least, and all the voice acting is topnotch. IE you have David "Megatron in Beast Wars/Clank in Ratchet & Clank" Kaye as Cringer/Battlecat. Ben Diskin is fantastic as Skeletor and clearly having a good time.
  17. Maybe this is the real reason he's not in WWE anymore either.
  18. Glad they finally made it to Jersey. Honestly, I would've spread a couple of those matchups out, but Grand Slam is meant to be a big show. I personally can't stand the repetitive Dan Lambert stuff, but at least his Cornette ramblings led to a match this week. I hope FTR aren't simply serving as sacrificial lambs to Sting and Darby. All the Suzuki Incident stuff was really overblown, but I guess credit to AEW for making an angle and stretching this angle out a bit. I've been a bit hot and cold on Pillman Jr., but he did cut a good promo with JR tonight. This has been a decent build for his Dynamite match with MJF.
  19. Bron Breakker needs a mouthpiece as he learns his way around promos.
  20. Show felt very haphazard and too slapdash for me to call it good. Felt like Vince Russo was booking. Why would you have LA Knight come out and job to Bron Breakker the same night he's wrestling in the main event for the world title? Also, Kyle O'Reilly gets taken out and replaced by a random nobody? Makes no sense. Vince Russo comes out to see an incredulous Triple H, "The consortium was me, bro."
  21. Maybe he can go crazy and become Joker Balor? Worked for Sting for a little bit.
