    We all know that HBK/Undertaker is the correct answer. But we'll never get the SC crew to admit it, so I'll throw Danielson's last indy classic into the nomination pool. The Holy Demon Army reuniting to pay tribute to Misawa is also worthy of consideration.

    Wait, dropkicks are MOVEZ now? Seriously?

    OCTOBER 2018 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    I think Kenny Omega does more right than wrong from a purely in-ring standpoint, but he's threatening to give Edge a run for his money as the king of overwrought facial expressions. And that Rise of the Terminator shit needs to go away forever. He and Marty Scurll are probably the only two guys who I would enjoy more if they dropped the character work and concentrated on being wrestling machines.

    It would depend on the matchups. But all other things being equal, a NOAH show headlined by Kobashi vs. a replacement-level opponent would most likely do better business than a New Japan show headlined by Okada or Omega vs. a replacement-level opponent.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by "more popular." I'm sure current New Japan generates more revenue than NOAH ever did, but the top NOAH guys like Misawa, Kobashi, and Takayama were much bigger stars than the current New Japan crew. Speaking of current New Japan, I had a dream the other night that I had a 60 minute 2/3 falls match with Kazuchika Okada in a junkyard. I made him cry when I worked on his arm.

    I'm pretty sure Meltzer has said that both of NOAH's Dome shows were heavily papered.

    I recently rewatched Liger/Pillman at Superbrawl, and it really is amazing how much things have changed. Before that match, JR notes that the light heavyweight division has a weight limit of 235 pounds. These days, 235 practically makes you a super heavyweight.

    The WWF powers that be thought that Santo didn't know how to work but was a good-looking guy so they might be able to do something with him if he dropped the mask.

    The 'Johnny Kickpads' thread

    This thread got me thinking about what the Platonic ideal would look like. To me, the archetypal Johnny Kickpads: Wears kickpads (obviously) Is shorter than the average American male Has a low body fat percentage Works recklessly stiff Has cut at least one "I'm not a sports entertainer" promo Uses 90s All Japan finishers as mid-match transition moves Has wrestled for NOAH Competes in MMA and has a losing record Off the top of my head, I can't think of anyone who checks all the boxes. I consider kickpads and lack of height to be the only absolutely essential elements.

    Raw Is Coming Up On Total Bellas - 10/8/2018

    The difference is that everybody who turned on Hogan was completely justified.

    Raw Is Coming Up On Total Bellas - 10/8/2018

    I find it interesting that WWE is basically booking Ronda the way Bill Watts booked Junkyard Dog in New Orleans-that is, someone who can't be taken down in anything close to a fair fight. All we need now is for the Bellas to blind her with hair cream before Evolution.

    1974

    I think Inoki vs. Kintaro Oki on 10/10 would be right up the collective alleys of the SC crew. It begins with Inoki sucker punching Oki as he removes his robe, so you know it's only a matter of time before things explode. The rough uncooperative grappling in the beginning mainly serves to build up the tension. Sure enough, it eventually escalates to the point where Oki is obliterating Inoki with headbutts, even busting him open hardway. The finish is kind of anticlimactic, but what can you do. https://njpwworld.com/p/s_series_00005_1_1

    My pick for a dark horse challenger: You've got a number of things going on here. It's the main event of All Japan's first post-split Budokan show. It's the return of the prodigal son Tenryu after a decade. It's an almost-rematch of the 1988 RWTL final. It's Stan Hansen's last great match. It's by far the best thing Taiyo Kea has ever been involved with. Check it out.
