  1. It wasn't. They just got burnt out and had to re-energize. Like an ROH show circa 2005 which was what they were going for . And succeeded.
  2. Maybe I'm just high, but that crowd was pretty hot and just had low points. They were quiet during the beginning of the main event cause they knew they had to save it based on the stip.
  3. Ah, Caprice said that during the main event towards the beginning cause the crowd was tired. That show was hot from the pre show on. Eventually any crowd is going to get burnt out for a bit. It was a shame that it was the Women's title match where they had to work their assess off to get ALL THOSE DUDES in the crowd back alive, was put in the death slot. But who cares? That show fucking ruled!
  4. That show fucking ruled. The EMBASSY IS BACK, motherfuckers!
  5. Shit, gimmick an actual baseball to be crushed by a claw and we have Veer's finish that'll make him. He's pretty good so far, and I really like him a lot. And that would work perfectly with his character.
  6. Right? It's all based on, "Well I wouldn't pay that, so why would someone else?", when that is irrelevant. Get that money while you can.
  7. I really liked the first ep of the Nash pod.
  8. Main Event was awesome, but the only thing I'd have edited out was the " Is Swerve gonna swerve Lee?" spot in the middle of the match. We've moved on, and it killed the crowd for a second or two. Is Daddy Magic's Cokehead gimmick his impersonation of Tony Khan on Adderal , like he's Mike Myers or Mark McInney doing Lorne? I also would have turned off TK's live mic a lot faster than they did as he was jacking it during the main. I can't be the only person who heard that?
  9. I'm halfway through this show and it's been awesome in all the best ways and bad ways. Hook dressed up like Kid Unabomber about to shoot up a school was a choice. Followed by a breaking kayfabe "sandbag" gimmick that no one cares about.
  10. I really enjoyed the Eddie match, but some of the Classic Puroesu cosplay going on in that match took me out of it. It felt like a performance to me. OC vs Nese felt like a match with stakes.
  11. I just saw the Rescue Rangers movie and I'm shocked at how much I liked it. It was a ton of fun.
  12. I thought Nese vs Cassidy smoked Eddie vs Takeshita, and I loved that match. But the evolution of Cassidy is my favorite thing in wrestling right now.
  13. As a prodigious enthusiast of scromiting, don't knock it til ya try it.
  14. Will bring a giant grown man with that haircut was insane.
  15. I'm so happy I decided to get this show. I'm getting over covid so I figured, "Fuck it. I'll order the show and watch some wrestling here sitting in my recliner." That show blew me away. Off the recliner! Out of nowhere that became one of my favorite shows in a long time.
  16. They did release a dvd with some of them.
  17. The best way to ID the racists and misogynists in online Trek Fandom on Twitter is the Sybok test. If someone is fine with Sybok as a shocking new sibling of Spock but hates that Burnham is a shocking new sibling of Spock is a bit of a tell.
  18. Dead and Co this weekend in Boulder were awesome, especially Saturday night.
  19. It wasn't exactly a hero's welcome. The crowd shots showed a lot of folks who weren't popping for the old leaf crushing maniac, and I heard a lot of boos amongst the cheers. I'm also pretty sure a lot of those folks have no idea about what's been happening and were just popping for " No Chance" as a living version of Waylon Flowers' Madam puppet croaked some shit into a mic.
  20. I asked Dory about this on an old Observer call in show back around 2005. He told me that "Hoss" was his actual nickname and that's why he didn't mind it.
  21. You have to actually leave to be fired. Lou just showed up every time he was fired and they didn't care. Until Vince Sr. died. Then It stuck more often than not.
  22. I'm a fan of O'Riley who hated him in ROH. He put it together in NXT and became one of my favs. The only thing I think he sucks at are strike exchanges. You know, The bullshit spots where two guys just take turns hitting each other in the ring or on the apron like a bad Popeye cartoon from the early 60's. His forearms there look soft which just adds to how dumb and contrived the spot is. Besides that, and the dumb rebound lariat, KOR is great AFAIK.
  23. Statlander vs. Red Velvet was fucking fire. Statlander dropping the stupid alien gimmick is the right call. She came off as a STAR on Rampage. And so did Velvet and The Baddies. The main event women's division stuff has been kinda boring while Jade, the Baddies, Stokely, and Statlander are stealing the show.
  24. As a fanatical DS9 fan, I loved the Section 31 stuff and I love MU Phillippa. She's fun.
  25. Today is my birthday and we had over some friends and the kids across the street over for the show and some grilling. The boys, my nephew included were in and out of the show. They loved the Women's title match, but when Cody revealed that bruise? All three of these 11-12 year old boys were transfixed. They know what wrestling is. I've taken them to house shows and a RAW. This was the first time they were captivated by the idea that " Oh shit. That guy is hurt for real and is still doing this crazy shit, and WON!" They were wincing every time Cody took a shot. And by the end Cody became one of their new favs. edit: Oh, when I explained to the kids what the polka dots were about, they started talking about how Cody is fighting through the injury because it's messed up to make fun of his Dad.
