  1. in this month of giving thanks, i want to appreciate all of the posters here at DVDVR. the depth of pro wrestling knowledge here is unparalleled. You can pick any promotion in the world, at any time in history, and somebody here can relate stories of being there, or watching it on tv, or recall backstage stories they've heard, or talk about 'this wrestler's run' or 'that wrestler's promos'. Truly an unprecedented opportunity for learning and understanding. And all while the discourse is kept to a (mostly) reasonable, rational level. Thank you all for contributing. i've seen probably thousands and thousands of hours of wrestling, and feel inadequate compared to some of you. that's a compliment. Much love.

  3. I lurk here and want to say that @twiztor has echoed my thoughts exactly. I’ve wanted to post something similar but couldn’t find the words. Well said and Happy November everyone.

  14. I like Rhett Titus’s weird offense. It’s unique and it’s primarily impactful rather than flashy. Kiera and Sky is an example of good work between two wrestlers who still need some reps. They don’t look lost, it’s more like they haven’t totally developed the muscle memory and dexterity to totally hide the strings. Dante/Cutler is permanent tape material for me. I don’t usually recognize the enhancement talent, but I’ve seen Kai before so this Athena match is pretty neat. Good stuff. Athena’s recent matches may have created more internet engagement around the Dark shows than any have before, so I’m under the impression we’ll keep seeing her throwing bombs every week for a while. I’ve heard pity in the voices of the booth before, but I don’t think it’s ever been over footing and rope running. Poor kilt man. Eddie’s looking lean and mean. We’re in for a fun winter with wherever he’s heading. Adora is capable of a lot more than making Jade look good, but I think she gets plenty of opportunities to show that so her getting steamrolled isn’t the worst. QT is a phenomenal player/coach for the younger wrestlers because he utilizes the fundamentals in a way that shows how far you can get just by having strong instincts and a prowess for the basic mechanics. Danhausen is Danhausen. So we have two minimalist geniuses wrestling accordingly. I think Dean called Rampage this week Elevation on steroids, and this has the vibe of a Rampage that people would say was a bit weak on star power but rules. What a fun hour.

  15. My favorite thing about Menard is how excited he gets about things we take for granted. Like when Jade was doing a foot choke in the corner. It comes off as really earnest.

  20. I didn't want to be a hypocrite. You can't critique something you haven't experienced for yourself. ? I've seen them all so now I can honestly say that they all have no redeeming or endearing qualities. ?

  22. I mentioned this in the Indy thread, the cast of Riverdale showed up at the BOOM Pro Wrestling show in Vancouver Saturday night where I was the ring announcer and timekeeper. Here's Cole Sprause and I think Casey Cott with the new Vancouver City Champion Brady Malibu after the show. KJ Apa and a bunch of other from the show were there as well.

  23. So this commercial really DOES work if you replace it with that "not-so-Ucey feeling?"

  27. I love @J.T. saying "I don't like splatter films" and then pretty much "but I have seen all of them" ? Of course watching Terrifier 2 came up at work and I had to explain it to everyone, and my manager says she is halfway through Barbarian and loved Tusk and The Green Inferno, at which point I had to explain Cannibal Holocaust. Nobody liked the turtle story.

  28. I missed the show because of Halloween and being drained beyond all belief for the Phillies even though they got rained out last night. Earth was simply not ready for a Phillies World Series home game on Halloween. But I did see this floating around on Twitter. Rhea Ripley is the best.

  29. Athena heelin' and a squashin' on Dark/Elevation is amongst my favorite things going on in AEDub right now. I really wish they'd run back Athena-Jody Threat for TV.

  30. It looks like the Hollywood stunt man version. Ben Kinglsey is reprising his role as Travis Slattery for Wonder Man. Most likely the show will have Travis looking to make his comeback as an actor and cash in on his fame and goodwill following the events of Shang-Chi / Ten Rings. I await the rage and sadness of internet incels over the woke casting of a black man as Simon Williams. Their tears will taste delicious.

  31. They missed a great opportunity to have Gentleman Ben team up with Danny Little Bear as the OG Bear Country. Can you imagine what type of hot tag Gentleman Ben would have been?

  32. Yeah, I am not a big fan of splatter horror. More often than not, those movies end up being unintentionally hilarious rather than scary. I think that Savini's work in The Prowler is the only gorehound materiel that has really freaked me out. I have seen the Mordum films for the expressed purpose of being able to say that I have. They were stupid. I hate horror movies that are endured rather than enjoyed. The truly scary thing about Terrifier 2 is that fucking two-and-a-half-hour runtime. You are my hero for suffering through that for me, Curt.

  37. It’s charming that nearly 100 years after Chaney’s Phantom of The Opera a movie can still get good word of mouth based on stories about it making people sick.

  38. Yeah, no, Cavill *is* Geralt. I can't see anyone else working there. They weren't following the books anymore so you could just stop after Season 3 (which would be on par for Netflix anyway).
