  1. Haven’t seen this posted. Looks like as restrictions are listed we’ll start seeing more excursions again.

  2. Bahu posted a translation of Jun Kasai's book. It's a rough translation but it's all pretty comprehensible and very interesting http://fmwwrestling.us/Kasai1.html Read it in like an hour, easy read despite the choppy language, some of my favorite little bits -Seeing Cannibal Holocaust in theaters as a young kid with his mom -First impression of Ryuji Ito "A serious bean sprout wearing glasses" -The only two guys he's seen to have an "alien" like deathwish like him - Masashi Takeda and Toshiyuki Sakuda -Not really knowing anything going into the Un F'n Believable match, after the match he's getting cleaned up and some girl is dancing around topless. Then Justice Pain drives him home and gives him painkillers and he has to pull over to puke -I thought he had stopped the balcony dives due to injuries, but apparently Shin-kiba and Korakuen Hall banned them. Says Shin-kiba is a crazier dive than Korakuen. -I honestly have zero recollection of his scaffold match with Miyamoto, and he apparently loved it and doesn't like that it's not well remembered either. -Kayfabe is mostly kept here, so I can't fully tell, but it almost sounds like he went into business for himself to call out Ito and get the match booked that he had been trying for 7 years. Pretty insane. Big Japan seemingly hates making money and pushing stars. BJW in general comes off bad here, and as he conveys there's a lot of wrestlers there who are held back from wrestling the deathmatches they want. He saw how Sakuda was being discouraged from going all out and managed to influence him to become a freelancer. You can tell guys like Sakuda love doing cutting edge crazy matches like they can in Freedoms and GCW. BJW is almost like CZW now. -Sounds like he didn't make a reliable living till maybe after the Ito match, which is crazy when you see how over he was in the years leading up to that. Has to work a lot of part time jobs when he's injured, and has opted out of many knee surgeries. -Memory is getting worse, doesn't feel comfortable doing more acting work since he can't remember lines well. -Doesn't remember anything after getting powerbombed through the ring in his finals match against Masada (2015?), the only time he can think of he lost significant memory -Toru Sugiura panic quit deathmatches around 2013, got back into them in 2018 and is now one of the best in the world at them

  3. I know that MCU Loki did not birth Slepnir and we all know that Hela was MCU-conned to be Odin's daughter and Thor's older sister. Just saying that there is enough real life inspiration to support MCU Loki's gender fluidity.

  4. People should really check out the NEVER 6 man, a lot of fun, EVIL finally looked like he had some spark back and Togo still has the goods! Really looking forward to the Chaos vs 3rd Gen match (and the Ishii v Nagata and Goto v Kojima set up matches on the first) as well as what looked like the seeds to a Ishii v EVIL match down the line. The young lion vs vet matches from the last two shows were great too. Definitely recommend Ibushi v Uemura, Taichi v Uemura and Zack v Tsuji.

  5. Finished the episode a little bit ago. Was nice getting a somewhat slower episode and getting to know Sylvie. With the big reveal on the TVA agents I'm pretty curious to see what else we will find out the group is hiding.

  6. There's a few ways they could do it that I would definitely get behind. They could have Aoyagi score an upset early over Miyahara in match 1, leading to Miyahara being thrown off his game and losing again to Jake in match 2, then Jake proves he is the strongest by narrowly beating a still-game Aoyagi in match 3. Another option could be Jake pinning Miyahara in match 1 at like the 29 minute mark but teasing a draw, leading to Aoyagi scoring a fairly easy win over Miyahara in match 2, with Jake soldiering forth and winning match 3 for the belts., Or, since we just had a long Miyahara/Jake CC final, maybe Jake destroys Miyahara quickly in match 1, Aoyagi seizes the chance to get a win over a winded Miyahara in match 2, then Jake proves his dominance by beating Aoyagi in the final. Basically any equation that ends with a Jake vs Aoyagi tiebreaker final match makes the most sense to me, with Miyahara dropping falls clean to both guys. It's too early for an Aoyagi title reign, and as mentioned earlier if Jake loses again he's in Hirooki Goto territory in terms of blowing his chance one too many times. Miyahara can afford to lose to both guys and take some time away from the TC picture.to "rebuild", and Aoyagi will look stronger as a potential future challenger for Jake if he gets a singles win over Miyahara out of the deal. One very goofy option I suppose they could consider but I'm almost positive they won't is having a draw in the final of the three matches (rather than in the first match like in the 97 Carny final). This would lead to a situation where one guy collected two belts and the other guy still has his one belt (and the third guy is the big loser with no belt). For instance, say Miyahara beats Aoyagi in match 1 to collect his belt, Jake beats Aoyagi (who now has no belt to collect, after having already dropped it to Miyahara) in match 2, and Miyahara and Jake go 30:00 in match 3...you could set up a big rematch a month from now where both guys have to fight again to decisively unify the three titles. Convoluted but it would allow them to build some intrigue with fans waiting for the big payoff unification match after only partially teasing it the first time.

  7. I never thought I'd see the day when NZ became test champions. Makes up for my childhood devastation of the 1992 World Cup semi.

  11. Then who gets the win? Someone has to get two Ws. The set up of the last one is really hard to beat: a draw that tires out the first two entrants, and then easy wins for entrant 3.

  13. It's the "Goatfucker" theory of comedy. Someone fucks a goat. When someone says, "hey that's disgusting", they respond, "LOL I'm just joking!" But at the end of the day, they're still fucking a goat. Someone needs to tell Joey what a fucking stupid, stupid, stupid idea it is to do something like this.

  14. I’m also torn between thinking that the destroyed TemPad was just an illusion and that most of the episode was happening in Loki’s mind after Sylvie enchanted him.

  15. It's interesting how every wrestler who worked Kanemoto in the 90s seems to absolutely hate him. Even before you get into the spousal abuse he's accused (and iirc convicted) of.

  16. Ultimately, they only do that for Conor shows, and he's clearly on the downside of his career already. If he stops being the draw he once was, BT Sport will be forced to give up on PPV for a bit. Unless Darren Till catches fire or Paddy Pimblett (and his stupid hair) turns into a world beater, or something

  24. Makes sense given his penchant for changing his shape so how rigid can his sexuality really be? I mean the dude gave birth to Odin's eight legged horse in classical Norse mythology.

  25. Glad you're well, @Greggulator. You remind me again how grateful I am for the National Health Service and how they've helped me ever since I was a kid with the Cerebral Palsy and still do. The doctors and the appliances I require.

  26. Darby Allin is one of their main stars. Sending him to the BoSJ tournament, a tournament that hasn't amounted to jack shit since the '90s, is absurd.

  27. Y’know, Jericho hasn’t done a big musical number in a long time. A big Sharks vs Jets rumble with dancing and alternating verses between The IC and The Pinnacle. Yes, Tully will dance…and Santana will rule as always by surprising everyone with his beautiful voice. I seriously have the lowest of the low expectations for anything Jericho does. He can’t possibly ruin my opinion of him anymore than he already has. Just shut up and wrestle some matches. Maybe just get him to not share whatever creative ideas he has with the wrestling world for now.

  28. Without cable for the monthly NYC WWF shows on the pre-USA MSG Network, if the scalpers weren't selling MSG or Felt Forum tix at a loss after the opening bell, Crazy Bob and I (14 y.o.) would go to The Blarney Stone on 33td St & 8th Ave, buy a beer, nurse it the whole time and watch the card (commentary barely audible over the chatter and singing of Irish folk songs) on the TV over the bar. The ever-attendant gentlemen of leisure philosophizing upon the grappling action taught me all I needed to know about life, love and thee squared circle. Marine Drill Sgt. Robert Slaughter, Lou Albano and Don Muraco could really rile up these barflies, so they were my faves. Crazy Bob could befriend anyone, as well as start an argument on a dime by kay fabe supporting any of our boys. "I've been a wild rover for many a year..." - RAF

  31. Assuming it does have links to the past (which seems likely since when the trailer came out they basically confirmed it would have links to the trilogy and Andromeda) it is going to be interesting to see how they handle developing a "canon" story And that isn't even talking about the ending For example - of the characters you mentioned - Liara is the only one guaranteed to be alive universally (since she wasn't a squad mate in the main ME2 story). Everyone else has to come from the ME3 squad so the list grows to... James. (Javik is technically DLC so there are people who might never have recruited him) Now it could be they introduce some sort of thing that allows you to input your choices from previous games (they did this is Dragon Age... I wanna say between DA2 and Inquisition since it was across generations and you couldn't import saves) but... hoo boy... that is coding a whole lotta extra people.
