  1. This is pretty cool. As far as I'm aware, only two matches have been announced for Dynamite and both are top AEW guys vs "outside" wrestlers in matches that appeal pretty specifically to hard core pro wrestling fans. Mox vs Juice Jericho vs Bandido I'm not into "Attitude Era offence" Juice Robinson but I am really into "slugfest" Juice. I'm guessing Mox might drag him into slugfest mode. Bandido in AEW is even more exciting, to me, than Juice in AEW. I keep hoping we'll get Vikingo in AEW some day. Just putting that out there. Of course, Mox and Jericho are both big names. But their opponents are maybe unfamiliar to """" casual"""" fans? I often get the sneaking suspicion that AEW are running a heat check. Following up a loaded card and a million -plus same-day US viewers with something that appeals more specifically to their core fanbase. Usually I don't give the slightest bit of any kind of shit about the ratings, but it will be interesting to see what happens this week. Particularly if they don't announce more matches. Also Saraya and MJF are gonna speak. And JAS are reportedly gonna celebrate again. I am stoked for the two announced matches. I like when my obsessive wrestling nerd friends and I are clearly the target audience.
  2. I wonder if he'll sneak in Space Lone Wolf and Super Ninja retirement matches before the actually final Keiji Mutoh Final Bye Bye in Tokyo Dome extravaganza.
  3. I am kinda tired from marking out nonstop for two hours Thursday morning, then again today. That's me. Basically. For two straight hours. Excepting the referee angle after the Kingston match. I want AEW to bring in Tay Melo's sweet, fluffy sister Marsha. I can't help but wonder how New Japan feels about Muta showing up in AEW. i don't care, I just wonder. Glad I avoided spoilers! I popped for that. Not too sure I'll pop as hard for him in the ring, but we'll see soon enough I suppose. I was kind of hoping that Chono would do a leisurely stroll-in to save Jungle Lad. Was Hobbs doing a Glacier tribute? Brody King! You did a Sting fling! A LOT of crazy, scary bumps today! Sting, Julia,Darby, Brody King, Kingston, Starks... Awesome show. Hope everyone is OK.
  4. Have you been ingesting tetrahydrocannabinol? Who could possibly have the wherewithall to overhaul such a free-for-all?
  5. I think Sammy Guevara is a way better heel than MJF. Cuz people are, like, "Man! MJF is such a good heel!" but " Fuck Sammy! I hope Eddie beats the hell out of him!" and in my opinion the latter is a much better reaction.
  6. His site also, angrily, reported that Brodie Lee died of COVID and AEW covered it up. Motherfucker has ZERO credibility remaining. Speculationn from Keller has no actual value. It's safe to re-lock this thread (for now).
  7. It's actually a really wide sign that says: Legendary professional wrestling television announcer Good Ole JIM ROSS Has a favourite tag team, which is none other than the YOUNG BUCKS
  8. I'm not trying to be controversial, but in my opinion that was a pretty darned good professional wrestling television show. Really looking forward to reading our boy Natural's reaction to the main event over and over and over again for the next several years! (I was hoping for a Danielson win, too). (I don't feel like a Mox win is the end of the world, though). If MJF's fans are Devil Worshippers, does that make PAC's fans Oh boy was it cool to hear so many people erupting with joy for the good guy team winning the tag titles. Pro wrestling at its best.I Really curious what, if anything, the hater-by-nature crowd (here and elsewhere) are going to come up with to complain about for this show. I tend to enjoy almost everything that AEW does... But I really enjoyed everything on this show. That was a pretty much perfect pro wrestling crowd, too. And we have an awesome Rampage to look forward to.
  9. I work early (for me) on Wednesdays, and I have to catch the train to Kyoto not long after Dark finishes, (and by the time I get home it's late and I'm shifting into "get geared up for Dynamite" mode) so I don't generally have time to do a write-up for Dark. And I don't have time for a full write-up today. But. I have to say: I was really pleased when Ex came up with "Wardjoe" as the name for the Wardlow & Samoa Joe team-up. As we all know, making portmanteau puns on Wardlow's name is the highest form of humour and the zenith of wit and good taste. Also, KiLynn's finisher looked awesome. But, mainly, we get JD Drake back in trunks and a focus on The Workhorsemen, and my spell check accepts that "Workhorsemen" is a word now, and while My Favourite Pro Wrestler JD Drake is still a JTTS, he is at least now a YouTube Main Event level JTTS who gets his heat back after a loss, and that's not nothing. Really enjoyable Dark, leading into a week of professional wrestling that just might kill me. Off to get ready for work! See ya later! EDIT: Sonny Kiss' new ring gear absolutely deserves a mention as well. Yowza!
  10. I think HHH just really likes the idea that "One pill makes you larger."
  11. Yep. For whatever reason Ohsho's menus in my area have it as "mabo" in English. Which is why I said it's not a spelling mistake. i think Kyoto Ohsho now spells it "mapo" on their menus. The Osho/Ohsho version has different, milder, spices compared to the "authentic" mapo, and the sauce is a bit thicker. It is indeed pretty great.
  12. That's the whole point, though, right? If Japanese people want to eat "authentic" Chinese food they can go to Yokohama or Kobe or Nagasaki's Chinatown areas. Or they can go to China. In America, they are straight up looking for deep-fried, sauce-smothered American style Chinese food. That's something they can't easily get in Japan. Also, everyone who visits Japan should try Japanese style Chinese food, particularly Osho's gyoza, chili shrimp, and mabo tofu (not a spelling error). It's fantastic.
  13. Typhoon Nanmadol, featuring winds of 180 km/h and gusts over 250 is expected to tear through our area some time between tonight and the day after tomorrow, dumping 40+cm of rain on its way through. Best of luck to lostinube and all our fellow gaijin, wrestling nerds and otherwise, and native Japanese and anyone else in the path of this monster. It looks like it's gonna be a bad one!
