  1. I'm the idiot grinning in the background when Luke Jacobs gets a rope break with his teeth. I'm going to have to watch this show properly and not just watch out for myself and my idiot mate in the crowd. Novelty hasn't worn off yet though.
  2. I'm a little too short to be in that picture, but for the first half I was just behind the the cameraman standing in the corner on the right. If that picture was taken again for the second half, I probably would be in the middle somewhere. EDIT: My associate wishes it to be known that he is actually a Duck Dynasty reject.
  3. Jeez, not sure if I saw you there then. I had a plain blue hoodie for the first half and a Joe Coffey Last Man Standing shirt for the second half, and I was hanging round with a My Name Is Earl extra. (Here's where I find out that we were the ones blocking your view.) Gotta agree with your assessment of the show; the Young Guns colliding was worth a t-shirt from me. I think there are a few from that first half who fit that UWF/Pancrase style that Tetsujin was going for than in the second half, which could also have played into it. Main Event was hella fun though.
  4. I wonder how much of a difference not being demotable has made to Hakuho's longevity. He can pull out of tournaments that he's not going to win, he can not enter tournaments if he's banged up a bit, and then he comes back. As you say, he's not quite at his all-conquering best, but even then he's still so damn good. Compare and contrast with Tochinoshin, Takakeisho and Takayasu who probably should have taken far more time off recently than they have done in order to protect/regain their ranks, to varying degrees of success. I wonder if Mitakeumi even could have used a few days off after splitting his head open.
  5. Hakuho vs. Okinoumi was ludicrous. I don't know if you've heard, but Hakuho is pretty good at Sumo. That twist on the end of the throw was a thing of beauty.
  6. Got a soft spot for Mark (can't imagine why,) and I really think that he found his calling being thrown around by Wolfie. Someone told me that Nina Samuels needs to be managing Pretty Deadly and the more I think about it, the righter that is. Loved the Trent vs. Dar feud apart from that one DQ finish. The idea behind it was solid, but the actual DQ they went with was weird because that's just not what referees usually seem to do in that situation. One minor gripe though, the rest of it was great stuff.
  7. I mean, ideally at least Abi would be Sekiwake this time, but I suppose this is pretty good, too.
  8. Totally a work. They took way too long to take the tag ropes out of that particular corner after the tag title match.
  9. Vic Joseph is a daftie, pass it on. Me, too. I'm still gutted that Trent isn't getting the headline spot against WALTER, but this match fills the "two big bastards battering each other," gap.
  10. Trent Seven's going from fired up, to desperate to dead was a thing of beauty, that match was everything I hoped it would be. If someone could slap Marcel Barthel for that smirk as the show went off air, I'd really appreciate that. Dar vs. Williams was pretty fun, too. Good choice for the finish, I thought. I hope they're building to Mastiff vs. Coffey at Takeover, I just want to see two big nasty bastards batter each other somewhere on that card; and since Seven vs. WALTER has already been, that's my next, best hope.
  11. Takayasu should drop out, but I doubt he's that clever. I really hope he is, he's one of my favourites. Enho is so much fun to watch. No wonder he's "over as shit."
  12. Someone has big plans for Josh Briggs, huh? He seems to me like he would benefit from not having one eye so clearly on a WWE spot. Opener was a bit much for an opener. Second match, the four way was certainly a four way. I loved the Henry vs. Ruas match; but then I'm an unabashed Shoot Style fan. I particularly liked how Henry couldn't keep up with the shoot-stylings of Ruas but when it turned into 2019 wrestling match, he was flying. Then Ruas throws the kind of Kneel Kick I haven't seen since the glory days of Shin'ya Hashimoto. Good stuff. More, please. Everyone else has pretty much covered the Riddle vs. Gulak match and No DQ Women's match. I dug them both. The Babatunde squash was everything it needed to be. Went straight into Kingston with a live microphone, who I thought had a better promo than Heyman; and then the Tag Title match. Kingston is great; everyone else was okay. I wasn't into JD Drake's babyface schtick. Love me some big boys (Trent Seven is my favourite thing in the 'E right now,) but something about him just rang false to me. "You can't hit me harder than life has" was dokey as all hell. There's just something about him that just isn't that likeable; despite what should be a very sympathetic story he's got there. Overall, I guess I'd watch it if it was on the Network, but nothing here really made me want to see more EVOLVE, although there was some good stuff in there.
  13. Toni vs. Candy Floss was my favourite Toni Storm match so far. I'm amazed Nina Samuels managed to find someone to say that she was their favourite wrestler. Has no-one told Dragunov that he's not built like Joe Coffey? He's still a load of fun though. WALTER vs. Trent in Cardiff, please and thank you.
  14. Last time out he got off to a good start, 7-2 through 9, but then hurt his thigh and lost his last five for a makekoshi. In Nagoya, he's got a strapped up shoulder, but he's won his first three in typically Enho fashion.
  15. Hakuho pancaked Hokutofuji today. Hokutofuji gave him a good go, but what are you going to do against Hakuho? He just sees the Matrix. Has anyone ever had three Mono-i in two days before like Takayasu? I thought he was robbed in the second Ryuden bout and the first one today; although if we're being reasonable, Ryuden should have been given the win first time up yesterday. Tochinoshin is not looking any better today. Gutted for him.
