Re: BRM Reviews the 1/22/2020 Dynamite

TONY SCHIAVONE INTERVIEWS BRITT BAKER- bad I know she’s being mean… but Tony was being mean to her by hypocritically questioning her character while letting so many other people cheat without comment (especially when what Britt did really doesn’t seem like cheating). From there, this went downhill,...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

Overall, the PC suffers from the same issues as WWE : it's overbloated, they can't seem to drop the dead weight because "but what if", and the recruiting process is all over the place. Let's take Ruas for example : the guy seems to be doing some good work in Evolve, but he's also 38 and in developme...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

I have and will forever say that NXT took off because it was the only original wrestling show on the network. The indy stars helped, it doesn't hurt that it's been a GOOD show fairly consistently, but NXT and 205 were the only original in-ring shows on The Network. It was my biggest gripe about The...

Re: 2 Cents: WWE Performance Center

i've been saying it for years, NXT exists for the sole reason that they buy 'hottest free agents' . They wouldn't even survive with lesser known names of the indies. The thing is, they got noticed in the first place when they had a lot less indy stars. The issue really is that NXT didn't find the b...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

Not trying to defend Blanchard who clearly has attitude/temper issues, but after some very basic digging (as in I just checked Cagematch to see when that could have happened), I've noticed that a certain someone WASN'T on that Stardom tour : Allysin Kay. You know who was on that tour though? Jessick...

Re: Maria Manic's ROH contract expires, receives WWE tryout

It's almost like they never gave a shit about this division or something.

Like really, they're not going to bring back Klein even to be squashed in five seconds by Manic, just phase the damn thing out at this point.

Of all the people in that roster, Omega and The Bucks are the three guys that I think are bulletproof , that they can spend sometime building up people to their level, and then make a comeback to the top. They really aren't, and it's becoming obvious as time goes by. A year ago, very few people wou...

Re: Jim Cornette Resigns From NWA Following Racist Commentary

I've read three reviews of the show before this all blew up (Csonka, Hall and cero's here), and not a single one mentionned that line. Yes, it was a very stupid line and Cornette should know better judging by the amount of trolls he has to deal with every day on Twitter. Yes, he should also notice t...

Re: Oney Lorcan Requests WWE Release

In the sense that you're thinking, in the current landscape you're absolutely right. The days of the huge WWF/WCW talent jumps are never going to happen again. Barring one-off situations like Moxley, WWE has done such a shitty job that nobody would care unless it were an Orton/Rollins/Reigns/Lesnar...

Re: Oney Lorcan Requests WWE Release

I'm not saying that those guys would be worthless elsewhere, just that they wouldn't be major acquisitions and change a thing in the overall current wrestling landscape. Sure, they could reinvent themselves somewhere else and become more important, but no one would be like "OMG, IT'S JOE HENNIG/BO R...

Re: Oney Lorcan Requests WWE Release

At some point, they'll have to grant some releases. AEW isn't going to sign everyone like they're WWE or something, and I kinda doubt people like Hunico, Mike Bennett, B-Team, Ascension, other jobbers/lower midcarders are gonna move the needle in any capacity, even for the lower tier of promotions l...

Re: AEW Releases Official Rankings

The bigger issue is that it's not clear which matches are counting for this thing. It took me a while to find out that they counted the 4-way at FF in Page's record for example. Also Spears was 2-2, so you'd think he would be above Moxley since it's a bigger sample than just two matches. The sample ...

Re: NWK posts the results of AEW Dark 11/5

Absolutely incorrect. You're right, that would imply that he's funny, which he isn't. One-note jobber is a more apt description. I get why people sleep on Shawn, but I LOVE his presentation in AEW. I love his entrance, I love the chemistry between him and Tully. He has potential to be a great heel,...

Re: NWK posts the results of AEW Dark 11/5

Basically the only things of interest on this show were Janela and Havoc as a team, and MJF on commentary. 95 percent of the show was Full Gear hype, which, understandable, and I really hope Shawn gets a post Full Gear push, as he's way better than wrestling a comedy jobber. Like being a comedy job...

1/2. none of those Joshi promotions use gaijins, the only other than Stardom is Sendai Girls, which has also been at the same level since before the UK got dried up, they haven't grown at all. You can't blame Joshi on this. The female talent is still out there, wXw is just not using them, and from ...

wXw WOMEN’S TITLE MATCH: Amale Winchester(c) vs. LuFisto- 5.75/10 LuFisto did the best she could with Amale. I’m sorry, but Amale is just SOOOOO sub-par when you compare her with the other women in this company that the decision to put the belt on her was baffling and the decision to keep it on her...

One could say they're making a huge mistake letting him cool down, but he's also simmering in a spot where he could step in to the position very easily. I feel like they've got their fingers on the pulse and know their smarky fanbase would turn on them quickly if the company turned into a circle je...

Re: BRM Reviews the 10/30/2019 Dynamite (one POTYC and a whole bunch of sh*t)

This was the worst episode of Dynamite yet, with the majority of it being indyriffic spots-fests, dumb comedy, and self-indulgent, barely-logical Cody bullsh*t. Unfortunately, this is pretty much what I've been saying all along. I also think that the show is incredibly top-heavy so far and I keep r...
