  1. They totally need to shoot Omega v Mox at korakuen with the storyline of Kenny wanting the match on his terms in his back yard. Then they can stick around for the US title match at the dome and Kenny can begin the year build for next years dome with Ibushi.
  2. Both guys really came to play. The selling was top shelf and the home stretch Miyahara vintage. Great match is a great match but the vested interest would have certainly popped the blood pressure!
  3. Belting final match, Miyahara really is a master a work. Another one that would have totally torn the roof off with a full, vocal crowd
  4. I’m curious as to why the talk of fake laughing? It wasn’t Fallon. Seemed pretty clear that Schiavone and Excalibur were having a great time. If it wasn’t for you that’s fine. But if you wanted something genuinely creative and not at all taking itself seriously, job done. I’ve been laughing about it ever since. Now someone strap Corney to gimmick and alert the local facilities.
  5. That main event was DDT-tastic. Bonkers, creative and genuinely laugh out loud funny. Exactly what we needed after the last few days, and none of the cinematic trappings of the WWE or Hardy compound efforts. I like my wrasslin’ played straight but it’s pointless right now and I could watch that over and over. A billion stars. Genuine respect also for AEW taking the time to talk about Hana. Total class.
  6. Incredibly classy of AEW to take time out of their PPV to talk about Hana. Tony Khan doesn’t put many feet wrong.
  7. Her suicide tweet is literally one of the saddest things I’ve ever read. People just need to be better than this.
  8. I’m not sure the rights and wrongs of running shows right now, but Kento v Suwama was fkn tremendous
  9. I must confess, a rousing chorus of who gives a shit about Matt Hardy’ does my heart good. A bit of mid-card shtick with Chris Daniels is fine for what it will be. I guess we can pad time until Jeff is free for the match with the Bucks and then we can all move on to our jobs at the performance Center.
  10. Let’s not fool ourselves, there’s no smoke without fire. i think I just died inside, i hadn’t even contemplated it.
  11. I think we need to take into account Mox opened himself up hardway and likely had a concussion by all things said
  12. At this point Cornette has no option than to either get over his dislike of modern wrestling or quit working the gimmick. That tag match was an easy 5*. Comparing it to a past classic such as a Midnights match is redundant as wrestling has moved on so much since then. For modern style, that was near perfect. There’s an element of emotion and it’s expression that Omega is responsible for that’s never been injected the way it is in his big matches. That match had pacing, layout, story and build that totally took the viewer along. Big near falls, but nothing excessive and all adding to the
  13. Those shows are pretty fun, if long. Always builds to an excellent main. Bring some snacks and a few beers and you’ll have a good night
  14. I like Uncle Dave. I’ve always found him interesting and fairly on the money. That said, listening to him is like pulling teeth. I can’t fathom spending $30 to hear him go ‘umm, err, let me check my notes’ for 2 hours. The 1/1 Z1 is always the New Years hangover show especially as it’s usually at lunchtime. That said, Hino and Okabayashi are guaranteed to leather the piss out of each other so that would probably make your trip to Korakuen there. I’d try and go to the AJPW on 1/2. AJPW shows are almost always my favourite shows when I go to Tokyo due to the great wrestling and clean f
  15. Mox and Omega suffered hardway cuts that quickly stopped. Dustin gigged deeply and hit an artery. Big difference. AEW is going to be a little more giving but they have sponsors and rules. They are not intentionally going to have a total bloodbath.
  16. Precisely. These guys spent weeks promising barbed wire carnage and violence and that’s exactly what the paying punter expected. The hell are you complaining about? Cody and Aldis are the best storytellers in the game right now. The stip telegraphed the finish but creates the chase and more possibilities going forward in an interesting and embellishing fashion. This company is delivering on all promise and value for buck.
  17. It’s left field for them. What they do is push genres, messages and speak out. ‘The kids’ need bands that use their platforms and that’s why they are important right now. But hey, getting off track; great show! Shibata’s surely doing a tag at wk right?
  18. Also rocking a 1975 ‘People’ t in honour of the years best single and pop’s most important band. Legend.
  19. Can we talk about how good the set up in the Aldis- Storm match was, how nonchalant Camille was and how she took that lariat like an absolute boss. A million
  20. They need to buddy up with roh again. The idea of the briscoes raising merry hell in the studio is pant changing material
  21. I was watching ten minutes of it during a break and immediately enjoyed it more than anything since ECW went off air. It felt and looked awesome, classic studio fair but not the least dated. Count me down for weekly viewing.

    NJPW G1 2019

    It’s also live on tv asahi so I guess that plays into it also. Bitterness over, that’s another great show on paper

    NJPW G1 2019

    So about that card for Royal Quest. Bloody hell, if Melbourne got a show like that Festival Hall would easily do the numbers they were hoping for. That’s how you put on an overseas show to make a statement.
  24. You guys make good points but it’s not really what I was getting at. This show had the skirts, the refs and ring announcers. It was very much a NJPW show. The issue was it was lazy. In conception, promotion and work. As nice as it would be, I can’t expect the whole roster. So fine, use locals, but use them, create draws from guys that already have a local following. A string of matches built on wrestling and not just lazy sequences immediately makes a decent show. I’m not saying everyone has to work like Ospreay, but it’s that attitude that needs to be promoted in the roster. You can’t t
  25. And yes, schedule and expenses are issues. We know the rules of the business. But just look at Will’s workrate. I’m not saying it’s smart long term for him, but I’ve never seen him give less than 100%.
