  1. Not adding anything that hasn't been said, but I really enjoyed Cash's vulnerable-but-determined energy in that match, and how difficult he made surviving in the ring with Cobb look, just a pure exhausting struggle
  2. I think that while The Chase is obviously a slicker, more professional piece of music, it has a kind of hazy, laid back vibe that doesn't make it that a good fit as a wrestling entrance theme, while the (tag team) Midnight Express version liberally borrows every melodic element of it and turns into something cruder but way more in your face and exciting for the purpose it's being used for The FTR version being a knockoff of the knockoff while adding a chorus back in makes it sort of, you know, fine from my pov
  3. Then...Now...Forever...Together...and always twirling...twirling towards freedom
  4. Damn, you lot weren't kidding about Statlander, she was a fuckin megastar out there Ospreay's prematch promo sounded like someone trying to do an impersonation of David Bowie with a mouth completely stuffed full of teabags
  5. MJF will probably have other grievances than the contract situation, it just depends on whether he ever publicly elaborates on them. There have already been conflicting reports on whether or not he expected to be able to add money without adding years, nobody seems to have that strong a grasp of the finer details of the main beef
  6. Archer got up like a champ for those Wardlow powerbombs, damn
  7. I stand to be corrected but I think Ishii is pronounced "Ishi-e" but the ii is more like one elongated syllable, doesn't really make sense to segment it to the point of saying two separate sounds eesh-YEAHHH
  8. God I'd forgotten about that already. There'll be a Dark Side of the Ring about Cody's last year in AEW one day. Ominous electronic music playing over a vignette of a bleached blonde guy gesturing towards his neck while a weeping tattoo artist pleads with him
  9. Is it bad that he was allowed to say he built the forbidden door? (beyond the fact that it became very annoying as a thing to constantly reference very quickly) I'm not unsympathetic to the idea that Tony Khan needs to impose a bit more message discipline and consistency on his product, but is Rhodes referring to a nebulous concept that got invoked on TV nearly every week, in a rambling promo about nothing much where he came across as a bit of an idiot, that big a deal? If anything it seems that Cody being allowed to have his own little sandbox was just the cost of doing business to keep a guy who was to some degree a draw and liked by the network etc, but as we've seen that all became too much of a pain in the ass for everyone involved and it's been resolved in a way that's probably best for everyone. The alternative would have been either not working with Cody in the first place, or changing everyone's name, insisting on giving them music you own, and having bullshit 90 day no competes, which would just be pushing AEW into being a company nobody particularly wants them to be
  10. That entire shoot is on youtube on the channel "best of the KC archive" or similar (it's their own channel not a reup), but as with a lot of of their stuff there is a ton of grim misogyny as well https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2022/03/news-on-scott-halls-health-before-his-passing-sean-waltman-on-hall-suffering-during-the-pandemic/ Unfortunately it sounds like Hall's final years were not good, Waltman seems to imply he basically fell off the wagon and became isolated because of the pandemic, and when he fell and broke his hip he was lying around for days before DDP checked in on him because nobody had heard from him, pretty miserable stuff
  11. Jericho should rush out some Parker/Menard merch, then have them work occasional indie shows where they have to go back to being called Matt Lee and Jeff Parker 2.0 because Jericho owns their AEW gimmick
  12. Is there still a way to do manual rope breaks? I have auto rope breaks turned off and saw a website guide that said manual rope breaks are now available to all wrestlers, but have never seen the prompt or had an opponent do one when right next to the ropes Also how do you do the takedown defensive ability? I know the flash pin is right stick and down on d pad but not sure how to do the one that just trips them up
  13. People are posting some pretty cool reversal sequences leading to match finishes and stuff on the wwe games reddit, much like fire Pro I guess the closing stages of the matches are handled better then the early stages The PSN store says the Undertaker Immortal pack is included with the standard edition as of now (it was meant to be part of the pre-order bonus I think), but it isn't actually turning up for anyone from what I hear. Currently trying to get them to send it to me but suspect the answer is "looks like Sony fucked up, have a nice day" I wouldn't care but I'm currently unable to download a reasonably good Luchasaurus caw because it uses moves from it
  14. By default, you press x rapidly to fill a circle. That's it. You can change it back to the stop-the-moving-bar-in-the-green-line version in the options but I won't be doing that. The submissions minigame requires tapping the correct button according to the prompt, but can be changed to just holding it instead. All of the semi-realistic chain grappling/working holds and reversal limits have been removed, so the matches are kind of annoyingly go-go-go from the start. There's no stamina bar but there are still slider settings related to stamina effects and recovery; haven't heard anybody saying they've seen any groggy finishers or crawling pins, which has to be one of the best features they ever put in and then immediately dumbly scaled back and removed for no reason. On the other hand, the controls are smoother and more responsive, and there seem to be a lot of contextual animations linking things together. The overall feel of playing a match is definitely improved on e.g 2k16-19 where it was possible to have frequent good matches but too dogged by this kind of jankiness to ever really say it was fun doing it I don't know what all the sliders do to tweak yet but it doesn't seem very good for simming so far, feels like one AI wrestler (Cody lol) tends to get the advantage and steam almost uninterrupted to a finish.
