  1. Can someone explain to me how a perfectly done angle continuation from some of the brightest minds in the business indicates Regal is leaving? Hang on, answered my own question. In other news, Punk is soooo coming back
  2. I mean I’m not wrong am I, there was an actual small window there where people were starting to give a shit about the NWA title right?
  3. A Sunday morning stroll and a great coffee in, this debate popped into my head; choose a year to go back to and travel around watching the graps. I’ve been blessed to be able to travel to Japan and the US many times for runs of live shows, but if I had the time machine, 1994 is where I would land. The Super J Cup, prime AJPW title matches, AJW gearing up towards the dome, W*ING, the birth of IWA Japan, the rise of Michinoku, the height of FMW, ECW hitting its stride, WCW’s best shows before Hogan killed the vibe. Dammit, take me there now!
  4. I think you need to actually listen to Punk document the whole affair on Cabana’s pod and get the actual facts. Everything was documented, backed up and indisputable given WWE caved in, paid Punk everything he was owed and backed down from a court case they were going to get slaughtered in. He had every right to be bitter and broken when he quit that company.
  5. Correct sir. Holy shit, BIx put 2 and 2 together and got 5, well I never. Try listening to the facts and doing some real journalism. Punk has always been honest to a fault and I’ve never seen fit to doubt what’s he’s saying or believes in. Given the timing it’s hardly surprising he finally spoke his mind. Professional or not, it’s probably high time all this stuff was laid bare so we can all move the fuck along.
  6. So good. Love both guys. Man is next weeks match going to rock. Do need Omega and Ospreay to now recreate the ‘Human Traffic’ bruv-off scene for BTE
  7. How the hell is Ospreay still functioning after this week? Amazing
  8. The amount of people buying Punk is still injured given the first thing he did was jump off the top rope into the ring is amazing. Bravo, very clever storyline progression.
  9. Having re-watched the finals a couple of times I’m still captivated by how good it was. Just amazing storytelling and selling from both guys. Everything meant something, built to a climax and was followed up by a perfect sell. Something as small as Okada on his knees telling Will ‘you will beat me soon’ was just the chefs kiss. Ospreay leaving in tears should also be noted as it mirrors Okada when he fell short against Tanahashi. Nobody can touch NJPW for these memorable matches.
  10. That. Fucking. Match. The drama, the selling, the ebb and flow. Both guys laid it in and delivered. But, the wrong guy won and I think everyone in Budokan knew that. To be positive, almost magical to hear the crowd find it’s voice. WK back to one night, just the way it should be.
  11. Whilst both G1 semi’s were terrific, Naito and Ospreay was an absolute war and MOTYC. Absolutely stellar hour of live pro-wrestling.
  12. Nice to see the ‘kiss my ass’ club has a full blown Twitter subsidiary. Looking forward to the inevitable 2hr tv tribute to all of Vince’s sexual deviancies
  13. No way around it, the parking lot angle for Flair’s last match was just tremendous work from all involved
  14. https://www.instagram.com/reel/CgHL8y4hqpl/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= This joke has legs
  15. Look, you’ve had a good run Gordlow… Rough delivery but a great gag from Cobb Sure takes a long time to get a flight out of Tokyo these days. Good luck with the ‘re-evaluating my life’s path’ for a few weeks before re-surfacing on some Canadian shit shows
  16. As soon as results stated he wasn’t there, first thoughts were immediately ‘what’s he done this time?’. Tame by current standards but not within the culture he should be respecting and appreciating his opportunities.
  17. So Chicago is officially the pro-wrestling capital of the world right? Only had time for two matches. Loved the shit out of Claudio and ZSJ. Zack’s stuff looks so good the crowd was biting on everything and Claudio looked a million bucks with the cuffs off. Just two great pro-wrestlers doing pro-wrestling stuff. Oh look, it’s the flippy guy having another MOTY candidate. I finally think people are beginning to realise what an incredible worker Will Ospreay has become. He just knows how to mix the ingredients. The way the match switched into another level was masterful. Never enough to be hokey and edited perfectly to hit the climax.
  18. He’s a helluva talent. That was a terrific match, the kind Ospreay delivers time after time with whoever he’s in the ring with. If they could get Wayne into Dragon Gate for a year he would benefit immeasurably. But with his youth he’s a licence to print merch money. They could totally do a 123 kid thing all over again with him.
  19. More Miyahara magic tonight. 25 minutes gone in the blink of an eye. Nothing flashy, all impact, both guys laying it all out and in for the duration. Matches like that deserve sold out arenas going batshit down the stretch.
  20. And there was I thinking the easy go to was ‘Dax carried the flippy guy’.
  21. My god Dax and Will was a vintage TV match. Absolutely flawless execution, heat and back and forth. Dax continually gets his deserved respect, but people are still seriously going to tell me Ospreay isn’t as good as there is? Please.
  22. Out of the box suggestion; how about destroying it and pretending this shit never happened?
  23. To be fair I don’t think the blood was planned although probably inevitable. Mox’s stitches opened up and as soon as he realised he just said fuck it, throw me into the ring steps.
  24. In terms of what he does and how he works, Punk’s perfect opponent is Tanahashi. Those two will kill it.
  25. ‘Look, we’ve only got ten so let’s just cut out all the basics and drop each other on our heads ok?’ Entertaining? Sure. Any good? Meh. On the upside the truncation meant it was probably less dangerous than my past experiences of watching Brooks nearly cripple himself or his opponent.
