  1. Past hour
  2. It totally fits with how much he got repeatedly chumped by Doink, too.
  3. I wouldn't call it a great match, but it is enjoyable and fun and Crush's best match by far. Plus, Savage being like, "Fuck it, I'll just hang this dude upside down" to win was fantastic. It was yet another finish in a line of them where Crush got outsmarted by a far more intelligent opponent, so it fit right in with the narrative (or at least the narrative that I'd built in my head) that what was holding Crush back was that he was too dumb to beat smarter competition in big matches.
  4. I know. Still just a bit wild that the only woman in the original six missed the big team up.
  5. Apparently you can add Scarlett Bourdeux to the list of people trying to get out of TNA/Impact as she asked for her release. I assume this has something to do with Killer Kross who they are currently dating. But the idea that they have spent almost 5 months pushing her to the moon and the best you get out of her is a team with Fallah Baah and a match against Disco can't be good for them
  6. I will defend Crush/Savage Falls Count Anywhere with my dying breath James
  7. Classic rudo style right there. Stevie wasn't even the worst member of Harlem Heat. Never forget Big T and Kash.
  8. I don't think there's much of anything to disagree with what you said. That's a pretty even keeled take on matters.
  9. Might have been a timed upload they finished editing weeks ago.
  10. I don't think Stevie really needs rehabilitating. Booker being as good as he is doesn't make Stevie bad. Until today I hadn't heard that take in years. There are plenty of great Harlem Heat matches, one great Virgil match (DiBiase at SummerSlam 91), and zero great matches involving Crush or Horace.
  11. Very odd of AEW to tweet this out right now. Another minor mistake.
  12. Today
  13. For what it's worth, AEW just tweeted a hype video for DoN that still features Page/PAC right up front.
  14. DG is more of a very strong niche product, versus RoH (and I guess AJPW)'s status as "de facto best indie that people only care so much about". DG doesn't really do a lot of crossover work, fans of the promotion are numerous and dedicated but they don't get out of the DG bubble much (they have a LOT of female + gay fans, for example). That we-do-our-own-thing attitude is reflected in their booking and is being reflected here.
  15. Not that MORELOCK is even remotely trying to do this, but I am enthusiastic about any tiny rehabilitation of Stevie Ray solely on the grounds that Harlem Heat was my grandma's favorite tag team (and therefore my favorite tag team) and we'd watch them squash dudes on WCWSN together when I was a kid and thoroughly enjoy it. I will always swear up and down that Booker T and Stevie Ray deserve more love for that reason.
  16. Page going over Savio Vega is going to help him more in the long run.
  17. Yeah, DG seems to draw more than the others but to me it's like Japan's ROH. It exists and people watch it but it doesn't resonate. I end up reading more about AJPW.
  18. I just wrote 1200 words on a movie starring a guy I thought I'd never write about.
  19. You are correct. DG has unofficially been the second biggest promotion in Japan since NOAH started deteriorating after Misawa's death and Kobashi's retirement.
  20. I'm sure people will disagree with me but this PAC situation shows that AEW can't be fucking around with guys who are free lancers and place them in key matches. I still think this has to rest at least partially on AEW because this should have been worked out weeks ago.. PAC should have been approached and it should have been agreed upon then and if it was and PAC just now said "I'm not doing it, brother" then there should have been no compromise. They should have said fuck you and moved away from him entirely. They will have to learn that in this business sometimes you have to rule with an iron fist. You don't have to be Vince McMahon but taking a wrestler's "word" on anything means shit. I'd trust a used car salesmen over a professional wrestler.
  21. That seems to be everyone from the Girl Power scene, which would be why no ScarJo.
  22. I feel like your missing the point, especially with the idealistic talk. AEW is not the greater good. Its just another wrestling company. Whats good for them isn't going to be good for everyone. They didn't do their due diligence in this case. DG may be a smaller company, but they are still pretty decent sized in Japan and have earned far more of PAC's respect from his time with them than a startup he isn't signed to has. Its ridiculous to expect him to be loyal to AEW first, especially if no contract is in place. Whats more PAC's position has been long known so its again AEW's fault thinking it would either somehow changed or be ignored when the time came. Who knows, it could be that a deal was struck and people tried to back track, but with the information given so far it seems more like AEW just screwed up. Blaming PAC based on whats been said so far is kind of ridiculous.
  23. Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Dragon Gate been the number 2 promotion in Japan for a long time now? They draw a lot more consistently than NOAH, AJPW, W-1, BJPW, whoever, and the only non-NJPW shows that I've seen outdraw their big Kobe shows are the DDT Peter Pan shows + the KENTA/Marufuji match last year.
  24. With no track record, it’s easy to assign AEW all or none of the blame as you see fit to reinforce your preferred narrative. Choose your own adventure!
