  1. Yeah, I want to see El Hijo del Vikingo in every promotion I watch, to be honest.
  2. I agree with this 100%. During the lockdown, I wasn't really into wrestling. I kept up with results but that's it, for the most part. This past week I've been watching shows and getting into it again. Live crowds really make such a difference. I have no desire to watch anything WWE except for NXT and possibly the ppvs but there's so much else to enjoy that it doesn't even matter. I put this in the Discord but there's like 3 of us there so I'll add it here. Are the Briscoe Brothers the best tag team to not make it to WWE? I know some people still have a problem with them due to the homophobia and, yeah, that's a big stumbling block. Luckily, as far as I know, it hasn't been a reoccuring issue like with other public figures I once was interested in (or in the case of *coughMORRISSEYcough* was an obsessive depressed nerd over) so I can hope that things have evolved on that front and not know any different (unless something was said that I missed in which case, damn.) I will admit I haven't seen anything they've done in Japan, outside of some NJPW stuff. Is their NOAH stuff worth seeking out?
  3. As a 10/11 year old, I LOVED Glacier, Wrath and Mortis. Glacier's entrance was one of my favorites and I loved the gear that Wrath and Mortis had. I am sure some of my nostalgia for that era is rose colored glasses since it was when I first got seriously into wrestling but my ideal wrestling shows are C-shows. I loved Saturday Night and Worldwide. As a result, I love when AEW skews close to that type of show. WWE doesn't do it. NXT is as close as they get and it's no coincidence that it's the only WWE related thing I watch, outside of PPVs. Miller always made me laugh and I popped big for that Rumble dance spot he had. Seeing @Gordberg's post, what should I check out for Alexander Otsuka? I am a shoot style novice. Heck, an MMA novice really (outside of a few early UFC videos I rented as a kid because I'd heard they were "the most violent things ever. People DIE!!!~~!~~!") so if hes's not a good person to lure me into the world of shoot-style, where do I start? (Maybe I should spin this off into a thread, if one doesn't exist. If someone else doesn't in the next day, I will.)
  4. That was my biggest issue with the first episode. I for sure had a few moments where I asked myself "This is supposed to be 1994, right?" just from the way they acted and other asthethic choices. The kills were fun though, especially the meat cutter. My sister and I were watching it on Skype together and both popped big for that. I also liked that they had an epi-pen/adrenaline shot sequence in a story set the same year "Pulp Fiction" came out. I will admit that this is the type of stuff aimed directly at me. Goosebumps was my intro to horror in 1st grade but with my "advanced reading level" I was reading Fear Street novels in 2nd grade so I have a lot of nostalgia for it as a series. ETA: I will 100% admit that these are pure "rip-offs" (or homages if you want to be charitable) to other, bigger and better horror films but that's kind of R.L. Stine's thing. I didn't know any different when I was first reading this stuff so I might be more forgiving than people who didn't have their formative horror upbringing shaped by Mr. Stine. Plus, I always have to rep for an Ohio boy.
  5. Where can I watch the FMW-E show? Is there a streaming site it's on? I'm morbidly curious/want to see what kind of shape Onita may be in for the possible Moxley match.
  6. @Stefanie the Human I've never said this but you're a poster that I really enjoy having here. I needed a solid laugh today and this did the trick. Thank you!
  7. Is that Drake in the pic with him? He looks like he's aged 30 years in the last few weeks, if so. Before I enlarged the pic, I thought it was but looking at it in full size it appears to be an old man who looks like Drake. I donno though, tbh. Of course, JC is railing on about it as proof that Joey and AEW are Q-anons.
  8. Had that same dude and he was also a mega star in my figure federation. Even managed to put down Apocalypse and Bane. My intro to wrestling was being home alone not long before Wrestlemania 14 and flipping through the channels and seeing The Giant on an episode of Saturday Night. Right away, I was hooked. I talked to a kid at school who liked wrestling and, testing the waters, watched Livewire, Worldwide and Saturday Night the next week. Eventually, I taped RAW and would borrow a friend's Nitro tape. Austin was my favorite from that first week on. La Parka came next. After a month of talking about wrestling non-stop, my grandma got me a tape she found at Goodwill or something. The "High Flyers" Colliseum tape. I watched that thing daily and, oddly enough, was obsessed with the Jumping Bomb Angels. I still love their series with the Glamour Girls. Weirdly, I'm just now getting into joshi.
  9. I'm sad the video cuts out just before what appears to be that girl busting out the robot. Her Cena-esque "Can't See Me" into a making it rain was a good transition spot. The robot as the finish would have pushed it to 5*. In clipped form, let's call it 3 1/2*
  10. Over the last few days, I've been trying to remember what Comando Negro vs el Pollo was. I remembered at some point Black Terry pulled the video and made handheld IWRG matches as a pay per download service. Does he still do this?
  11. Having visions of a Deathmatch Stations of the Cross gimmick match. The guards are smashing tubes over Jesus' head, he's crucified on a barbed wire cross....I think I'm going to have to get out my copy of "Passion of the Christ," the best exploitation film of the 2000s.
  12. I hate to say it but by that time with NIN, I kind of was going for nostalgia reasons. I loved them for a while and they kind of lost me after "With Teeth" so really, the show wasn't for me. I will say finally getting to be in a pit for "March of the Pigs" was worth it, along with APTBS opening. I feel like I'd probably like Year Zero more if I went back to it, I just haven't tried it yet.
  13. I saw that NIN tour as well. A Place To Bury Strangers opened and they were mindblowing. NIN was great, up until they decided to play most of Year Zero to end the show. I was not a fan of that record and a solid 45-60 minutes of it bummed me out hardcore. Smile was a good record but the Japanese release was mixed differently and is way more enjoyable, to me. They did a live album shortly after that is honestly my prefered way to listen to that record. After that they were hit or miss for a while as they seemed to just be over making music and it showed on their albums.
  14. I have a softspot for Homeless Jimmy myself. That extends to hobo characters in general, in all forms of media. I think that comes from a childhood fascination with Emmet Kelly. In college I was friendly with a guy who wrestled for PWO in Cleveland whose gimmick was Hobo Joe. And of course I'm a big backer of Vince's hobo army. EDIT: In fact, I almost wonder if he posts here. @hobo joeare you a former Falcon?
  15. Fun barbed wire bat match in which the competitors solve the "I know I'm slower than my oponnent and will not get the bat before him" problem by HIDING ANOTHER BARBED WIRE BAT UNDER THE RING! Little kids screaming for blood like it's Puerto Rico and not New Jersey. Pretty hard shots with the bat, too. The channel it's on also has wome W*ING shows. It also has XPW which leads to my mini-rant: I knew XPW was bad. I had a lot of it on tape as a young tape trader. I had forgotten just how bad it actually is. I'm off work because I had symptoms and work with food so I've been staying up way late and watching wrestling. I picked XPW last night because I was in the mood for bloody stuff. They weren't even able to do that right. The shows were like Vince Russo booked IWA: MS so the deathmatches were at hyper-speed (the match times, not the work. Supreme and Pogo couldn't work any faster) and the weapons looked like they had the highest budget of anything. The barbed wire boards looked like they came out of some rich pervert's sex dungeon, not a meth-heads backyard. As a result, there wasn't much blood and nothing looked any more painful than normal wrestling (except the insane falls, mind you.) It honestly is the absolute dirt worst and I still somehow ended up watching everything on this guy's channel. I'm ashamed of myself. Really the only saving grace is when the lucha guys would show up or the SoCal guys who wanted to be lucha guys. The Juicy One was the sole highlight of a lot of shows. Of course, as I type this, I'm currently seeking out every episode of XPW TV because I am a glutton for punishment.
