  1. OCT 2017 WRESTLING JIBBER JABBER

    In terms of young babyfaces, who could be THE guy, I think you need to consider Mojo. He's the right size, he's ever improving, he's not got too much mileage on the clock, he's got a legit sports background and he's a surprisingly likable face promo. At some point, they'll run with him and you won't be able to stop it
  2. OCT 2017 WRESTLING JIBBER JABBER

    Does anyone know what happened to Joe Thurman, the jobber who was injured fighting Vader in 92? WCW portrayed that Vader broke his back, but was that real or a wrestling exaggeration? If it was true, did he fully recover? Hadn't thought about him in years and he suddenly popped into my head
  3. OCT 2017 WRESTLING PHOTO THREAD

    I'm not a huge Marty fan, but he's definitely very popular. I've never been to a show where he hasn't gotten a huge reaction
  4. Happy Rusev Day!!! - SDL - 9/26/2017

    It seems that quite a few NXT debuts get stuck with Ziggler - Corbin/Nakamura/Roode - feels like they're being tested. "Right, if you're that good then try getting something decent out of THAT"
  5. Raw is Worth Zero Dimes - 9/25/2017

    I think basing 205 Live around heel Enzo isn't going to make anyone tune in who doesn't already watch, but it might well drive away those who do. Enzo is a channel changer of s character
  6. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    The Bullet Club "invasion of Raw" is one of the lamest things I've seen in a long time. You can't put out a tweet saying "We aren't playing" if your invasion is just you dicking around outside Raw.
  7. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    He's someone who was on UK Big Brother around a decade ago, tried to use his brief fame to work indies as Billi Lightning, then disappeared from the public view. He's the worst kind of Twitter know-it-all in that he's always wrong. Finest example was him telling Jimmy Havoc he'd never wrestle a match for WWE...the day after Havoc wrestled for WWE at WrestleMania Access In this case, he seemed to think it was ok for people to chant "get your tits out" at a 17yr old girl wrestling because wrestling has historically used women for eye candy, and "no one actually cares about women's wrestling". He's either a troll or an idiot, probably both.
  8. SEPTEMBER 2017 WRESTLING DISCUSSION

    By Brandi's logic, I'm looking forward to my favourite PPV "Pat Patterson's Royal Rumble" in January
  9. R.I.P., Bobby Heenan

    Bought the 2004 Hall of Fame DVD primarily to hear the Brain's speech, and it didn't disappoint. No matter how many times I watch it, I never fail to well up at "I wish Monsoon was here". The greatest manager of all time. No idea who is booking the wrestling in heaven, but he's just inherited the one man who could do it all
  10. MAE YOUNG CLASSIC FINAL DISCUSSION

    Thought the match was a lot of fun, and a good end to what has been a really enjoyable tournament. Both women have matches in my top 5 MotY list (Baszler/Shirai and Kairi/Kyona from the same Stardom show earlier this year), so I knew they could deliver a solid final. That said, I did find Sane's selling of the elbow a bit problematic. It's one thing to stop selling the pain, it's another thing to then use the arm in a lot of her offence - even using the arm to hold her entire bodyweight up on the body scissors. It was especially notable given that it was the second successive match in the tournament that her arm had been worked by an opponent. Still, enjoyed the match, Kairi is a really likable face and Baszler came across as a badass even in defeat.
  11. NXT SEPTEMBER 2017 DISCUSSION

    At first glance, it looks like a Shane Douglas t-shirt. But yeah, that's a terrible stable name
  12. MAE YOUNG CLASSIC - EPISODE 8 (SEMIS)

    One of my favourite things about the MYC is how Baszler had turned her rear naked choke into her version of the Diamond Cutter - she can lock you into it from any position. Never thought of Candice as being particularly good, but this was a really fun match. Baszler took that DDT like a boss too - between that and the Yim match she's been really good as a base for dives. I've no fears the final will be great - Io/Baszler is one of my matches of the year so far and, whilst Sane isn't as good as Io, both can go in big match situations
  13. MAE YOUNG CLASSIC - EPISODE 5 (2nd Round 1/2)

    Laith/Evers was probably the weakest 2nd round match (that or LeRae/Savoy), and there's a lot of people who went out in the first round who'd have been better opponents for Abbey. Evers still seems pretty green, hitting a cutter as "just a move" to minimal reaction only a minute or two into the match feels like an odd decision.
  14. I maintain Mason Ryan wasn't bad, just incredibly green when they debuted him on the main roster. He was definitely putting it all together in NXT by the time he was released, and I've seen him work decent bouts in one of m local indies against less than impressive opposition. Absolutely dying at being reminded of Alex Riley's Rumble fuckup. What an idiot
  15. MAE YOUNG CLASSIC - EPISODE 2

    Seen people on Twitter complaining about Marti - who WAS terrible - but Evers was utterly dreadful. Her bumping was all over the place, her strikes were shit and she looked barely trained. Embarrassing. The fact that Xia Li looked vastly superior to both Belle and Evers doesn't reflect well on them either. Li had a better, more unique look than either, her offence looked good and she moved around like she knew what she was doing. Lot of potential there.
