  1. the tape of the main event should be buried in a time capsule and shown to little Timmy and Vicky in 200 years to tell them how kings lived
  2. despite all his rage the main event will feature Brodus Clay
  3. was always surprised Vince never came up with a corporate term for Gorilla like Backstage Executive Vantage Point.
  4. I reckon this could be the slow roll to no wrestling on television at all. All wells poisoned, back to the carnival with you.
  5. An extremely close family member who lives in another town and you won't have heard of him or her
  6. I would argue that Naito, if he can sustain, really needs a period of being over huge as a champ. He's an awesome worker and a great character, but keeps getting held down under whichever one of Okada or Ibushu or Ospreay or Tanahashi gets the ticket.
  7. Tuned in a little this morning and caught a bit Ospreay and Phantasmo in a deathless dirge of flips and attacks starting just after being critically weakened, attacks meaning nothing, just two guys getting their shit in boringly. Didn't carry on.
  8. I saw there was some chatter about Wrestlemania IV in here recently and a question occurred to me: Hogan main events III and V but at IV he's in a QF against Andre that ends in a shite DDQ. What was going on with Hognosh around this time? Contract beef? Doing a film? I'm sure I could listen to another 4 hours of Lapsed Fan to find out but not got the mental energy to wade through all the ass-fucking jokes.
  9. general AEW naysayer here (and lapsed NJPW fan) who watched Tanahashi-Moxley, the four way, and CC-Sabre. Enjoyed them all! Main event was the best. Didn't go too long either, didn't go prog rock, just a good battle with some blood and a decisive finish that didn't bury the loser.
  10. I'll wait for the blocks to decide whether I'm in. I am glad they're spreading the load out a bit though. Might make for more chore matches, but maybe keeps more interesting people in the running. By round six of a 9/10 match block you can tell who is toast.
  11. CC final was fine. Good crowd helped but I wasn't mega into it. They should just let Jake Lee kill the kid.
  12. about to sit and watch the final so will return with thoughts. looking at the final night card I see some 22 year old beats Yoshitatsu in 5 mins? what's that about?
  13. enjoyed reading it. how is All Japan these days?
  14. sad I missed this annual beano, Lamp. I'd have said the last Tomaga record but too late!
  15. yeah it was the first song that drew me in, but most people I've played this to prefer the last track. glad you got round to it, lamp!
  16. I read that this deal covers the UK as well (or is a separately-negotiated deal) and we don't have HBO Max.
  17. i love this thread every year so i hope things are all in order for your return. best wishes to your sister. i even like it when you don't like records i like! the Cindy Lee album was top 10 for me. really gorgeous songwriting. would have gone higher but noise interludes wear thin on me. my #1 is All Hands Around The Moment by Richard Youngs and Raül Refree
  18. someone does need to lose the briefcase but it will be such a blow to anyone who does, a perceptible loss of confidence in someone who wins a gruelling tournament. they've painted themselves into a corner with the G1 winner = Dome main event. There's less time between now and then so might not seem like as much of the year is pointless.
  19. I think Ibushi goes over there. Ibushi beat him in the G1 final but Jay has two (admittedly lesser) wins since on night 2 of the Dome and in the G1 blocks this year. I hope Jay tries to outwrestle him, ie. no interference.
  20. They should look to move forward with Ibushi-Naito-Okada as their three pillars, Sanada, Shingo, Tanahashi, EVIL, and White are top class heaters and gatekeepers.
  21. That's possible, @Teflon Turtle. To be honest, I don't need to see every match be this crazy all-out war. I still recall how absolutely brilliant AJ-Suzuki was with maybe 3 bumps and a whole lot of character work and classic pro wrestling dynamics. Yes, some of the guys do need to get wild for me to get into them because they're not as smart as Tanahashi or able to do what Sabre or Suzuki can with matwork, but I reckon you could have a thoroughly-entertaining night of G1 with PG rated violence. I believe some of the diktats surrounding violence came from Meij, who is now gone. Whether this changes will be interesting.
  22. What frustrates me about Sanada beyond the two atrocious moves that he does is that I feel that, piecing bits of his career together, be it the babyface we saw in TNA, the wrestling we saw in Wrestle-1 and AJPW, and the persona we see through his social media, there is a megastar there. He is handsome, he was trained by Muta, and he can really work. I still have hope for nearly anyone in NJPW because they've shown they can heat people back up. As for EVIL - he's not a main-eventer yet. I have hopes for him beyond being a bruiser, but I am fairly bored of interefering cheaty shit, and I don't think Bullet Club signifies anything now. What I took to be an interesting and slightly post-modern gimmick is actually, in hindsight, the beginning of a conveyor belt of fairly goofy shit that leads to O Khan and Master Wato.
