  1. Hi all, with the rise of AEW and the month long delay of putting Raw and Smackdown on the Network in the UK, I've got massively out of touch with any decent matches on these shows over the past few years. I recently caught AJ Styles vs Rey Mysterio from Raw at the end of January and thought it was a great little match and that's made me think about finding some more to go back through. Looking at the WWE moty thread from last year, they are 90% ppv and Nxt, would anyone mind naming some of the better Raw and Smsckdown matches from the last few years that it would be worth while hunting back through the Network to find? Thanks in advance!
  2. Regarding Last Airbender, being British and watching it with my children at the time, it does have an unfortunate title, which is then used over and over again to make the less mature of us crack up into coughing fits of laughter... 'he is a very talented bender' for example. Seriously, I think this review puts it far better than I ever could: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2010/aug/12/the-last-airbender
  3. Agreed, what an emotional listen! I guess that put paid as to whether he will ever have a comeback, although with his skills I'm sure he could easily adapt to a no bump low impact style aka Johnny Saint if he so chose. Interesting also to hear that he has another last match out there, against Sami Zayn in 2014. I wonder if that was filmed? Edit - am now watching the UK Superstars match vs Bryan that he mentions and cringing at the German suplex bump he took on his 'neck that was held together by jelly' as he put it!
  4. After watching Bryan Danielson's first match for AEW it's really got me thinking about what a vast and varied body of work he's had going back over 20 years now. I used to have all the ROH DVD's including his stuff right from the beginning of the promotion, matches against Chad Collyer and Donovan Morgan as well as the more highlighted stuff like the first main event with Daniels and Low-KI the 2005-2006 title run which included loads of fun stuff we don't see talked about too much any more - like the match vs Rocky Romero from Steel Cage Warfare or vs SUWA from Anarchy in the UK (which I was at), and right up until he left in 2009 with matches against Morishima, KENTA and new talent like Tyler Black, and I'm gutted a lot of that no longer seems to be readily available. And there's tons of other material as well including his early Japan stuff, visits to England wearing a mask as American Dragon, NOAH, DG-USA, PWG, WXW, Chikara, FIP and Evolve. And that's not even taking into account his WWE stuff. While I don't think they are really the thing now, I would love to see an excellent, in-depth compilation of his career so far, like the sort of dozens of DVD sets we used to get from Goodhelmet for Regal/Finlay etc - I would certainly buy it!
  5. I would really appreciate a copy of the Gary Hart book should one become available!
  6. Not sure if this is the best place to post this so please move if it isn't. I have got out of the habit of watching RAW and Smackdown this year and haven't watched. Any of them. I want to catch up on the Network over Christmas and was wondering if some could provide me with recommendations or a list of good matches worth finding from RAW and Smackdown only from the last year. I am up to date with NXT stuff so don't need those. Thanks in advance!
  7. The KOW match is on the NXT blu Ray along with Regal/Cesaro from 2012. Ambrose/Regal is on the Shield blu Ray.
  8. Some good stuff with Finlay and a really good Cena match once. I liked his match with JBL at No Way Out 2006, also vs Benoit on the draft 2007 RAW. Really loved the Finlay series, Finlay's comeback and run in 2006 was amazing, he was the best thing on WWE TV that year.
  9. It is a pity that TNA don't seem to want to release 3 disc compilations for some of their people. I loved the Styles/Angle/Joe sets they put out in 2008ish and the big Jarrett one also, but don't watch their stuff normally as I don't have the time. Would certainly buy big sets on Sting/Angle/Styles if released as they must have had a few good matches since then...
  10. From the WWE website:HOW TO WATCH ON SONY INTERNET-CONNECTED TVS AND STREAMING BLU-RAY PLAYERS In order to experience WWE Network on Sony Internet-connected TVs and Streaming Blu-ray players, you must be a WWE Network subscriber. To use your Sony Internet-connected TVs and Streaming Blu-ray player with your WWE Network subscription: Scroll to the Applications row a. Note: On Sony Blu-ray players the WWE Network app will appear under the Video category Find and select the WWE Network App Select Member Sign In Sign in using your WWE account email and password Once your account has been verified, you will be taken to the home screen and can select programming from WWE Network that you want to watch. Click here for a list of supported Sony Internet connected TVs and Streaming Blu-ray players. Hope this helps! Thanks, have seen this, the problem seems to be that wwe network does not come up under the video category, there are 31 various icons on there including YouTube, dailymotion, Amazon, Netflix, BBC iPlayer but there does not seem to be a way to search for or to add new icons. The player is a bdp s1200 which is compatible according to the wwe website...
  11. I'm looking at subscribing to the network in the UK, trying to access via my Sony smart blu ray player but can't find the app anywhere. I am a bit of a novice as far as these things go, any guidance would be most appreciated.
  12. I think the whole of the Generico/Steen feud from 2010 should be up for inclusion, one of the best long term storylines ROH has done encompassing a range of matches and also including Cabana and Corino.
  13. I was lucky enough to see GO tag with Kenta Kobashi against Jun Akiyamna and Doug Williams in 2005 and again in 2008 tagging against Marifuiji and Misawa. He was a heck of a talent from what I saw. Great dropkick!
  14. The only Ki/Aries match in ROH that I recall was at The Future is Now in 2005 where Ki beat Aries with a top rope Ki-Krusher in a non-title match - giving Aries a story line neck injury going into his match against Punk. Ki left ROH for the last time in early 2006 - I think his last match was against Jack Evans, which is a shame as they were building to a Ki/Daniels/Danielson rematch at the Anniversary Show...
  15. I loved KENTA's various runs in ROH, particularly his 2 matches with Danielson from GBH 2006 and the second PPV in 2007, and the match against Hero on Hdnet in 2009. Special mention also to his threeway vs Joe and Danielson from 2006 where they all seemed like they were trying to legitimately hurt each other, is there a reason Joe vs Kenya never took place one on one?
