  1. i enjoyed Nick Aldis' reign for the first year plus, and his feud with Tim Storm. Minus a single month reign by Cody, Aldis has had the title for THREE AND A HALF YEARS. that is crazy and way past its sell-by date. the problem is that current NWA is full of third raters. i don't know what Corgan has planned, but i hope it's big. i would love to follow this promotion, but a subscription model with the current roster just ain't gonna cut it. i hope they can thrive by possibly picking up some of the talent WWE cut loose. Or coming up with interesting matches, stipulations, and storylines. Team Challenge Series 2021 is definitely not what i'm looking for.
  2. for anybody hesitating to watch the MOTU stuff because of Kevin Smith's attachment, i think it's very much a non-issue. This doesn't feel, sound, or look like his standard projects. If you're interested in the premise (or the discussion), i'd say check it out.
  3. i miss watching Samoa Joe and wish he never re-signed with WWE.
  4. count me out going forward. this last week was a brutal one and next week isn't shaping ip to be any better. it's been fun, and i'll get @Casey's pick watched sooner or later, but i gotta bow out. edit: @Caseythe SuperClash match is definitely better, but i assumed you had seen that. it's also on youtube if you want to check it out. yeah, this is very early in Madusa's career. Sheri's in-ring career is very spotty as she bounces between territories and roles a lot. they actually teased this match as happening in very early ECW (didn't happen) which is another weird novelty.
  5. i grew up a Bulls fan (like everyone else my age), but my first trip to United Center was for UFC 225 a couple years back. to me, All Out is their WrestleMania, but i'm probably biased because i was at All In and i'm only a couple hours from Chicago. They really do set Revolution up as top-tier each year.
  6. That opening video + the ramp/light entrance + ring apron introduction for Hangman & Dark Order is arguably my favorite moment in wrestling from 2021 so far. I didn't know just how invested i was in this story until that moment. When Page fully goes over the roof will blow off whatever arena they're running. same for me. I was really looking forward to FTR/S&O, but felt very deflated after the elimination tag and never got back into the show fully. @S.K.o.S.is right that based on the story they're telling, Page SHOULD fail and the Dark Order should stick by him, but man, it really did take a lot of the energy out of the crowd. my stupid pneumonic device for FTR: Bald may be beautiful, but Hair is CASH money.
  7. @Casey sorry about being late with this, it's been a rough few days. will watch your selection as soon as i can. i love me some bloody brawls! this isn't WWF, this isn't Joshi, this. is. AWA! in a rematch from their SuperClash II match, Sherri Martel defends her Women's Title against Madusa Micelli.
  8. big fan of the He-Man cartoons, both the 80s version and the 2002 reboot. Thought this series was awesome so far and am very much looking forward to the 2nd half. i think a big problem is that they leaned heavily into this being a direct sequel to the 80s series. it didn't match that in story, in tone, in animation, or really any other way. it is an awesome story, but it is not the same. IMO that's why there's a lot of resentment (well, that and misogny). i marked out for:
  9. take care, @Gordberg. i've enjoyed your AEW posts in particular.
  10. i'm not sure on your question, but the ad for the TJ episode of UFC Chronicle really pisses me off. It frames the whole thing as an inconvenience for TJ and that he is the victim of the whole thing. Like, it's a minor setback that he'll have to work hard but can overcome it. NO MOTHERFUCKER, YOU CHEATED. Your punishment was a 2 year suspension and the stigma you earned of not playing fair. that being said, i don't really get upset over bad/questionable decisions anymore. They'd have to be especially heinous before it would upset me. If you're fighting and it's close, then anything can happen. I do believe UFC and whoever else should better educate judges and commissions, but you can only do so much. If you, as a fighter, have multiple fights where you lost a close decision you feel you should have won, i would advise you to do more to prove that you won. more output, more pressing the action, more varied output, do whatever you can to solidify the win. don't just coast because you feel like you're winning. Some of this can also go back on the coaches and corner people.
  11. i scored the fight for Sandhagen and feel like the judges were overvaluing TJ's takedowns and holding him against the cage. But i'm fine with the decision. It was close either way. Sterling's getting some surgery done. Best case scenario, he will be available to fight late in the year. I expect it'll be longer than that and UFC will crown in interim champ.
  12. ha, i just watched that whole broadcast a few weeks ago. i forgot how long Piper's fight scene in They Live was. also, the second part of the double feature, Immortal Combat, is not good at all. also timely because they're making a Roddy Piper They Live action figure (see the merch thread)
  13. just saw an article that Vince, HHH, Steph, Nick Khan, and others just cashed out a portion of their stock. to my financial peeps, is this a common occurrence? does it play into the larger "WWE is for sale" narrative? does WWE have any big negotiations coming up that we know about? https://amp.wrestlinginc.com/news/2021/07/vince-mcmahon-and-top-wwe-executives-cash-in-on-company-stock/
  14. and can't feel the ring bouncing like crazy when someone interferes behind their back and hits their finish.
  15. i understand where he's coming from, but i feel like that's a false equivalence. WWE can make plenty of money off of performers, whether they "improve their game" or not. Dave's just too deep in the wrestling bubble.
