Re: Your 5 star matches

I feel like if you're going to use that logic, then you should be giving 10/10 to great squashes, too, or a chicken-sh*t heel getting DQed to keep the title, or a perfect heel trap like Ole Anderson turning on Dusty in the cage in 1982. Squashes are different, there's a reason we rate them by 'Squa...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Double or Nothing 2020

Correct. But you have to get in touch with a person who knows the frequency, and know that it's a good thing to cut to. Did Matt Hardy pull out his phone (which I guess must be waterproof) and call up the production truck and say "hey, my drone is about to fly in. Here's the link. Put it on the scr...

Re: Your 5 star matches

And I'm saying I think there is a huge difference between a match that is "a lot of fun" and something I'd consider a perfect match. Sure, but like i said in the other topic, a match that is not fun or entertaining is not a perfect match either. 10/10s don't all have to be comparable to each other,...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Double or Nothing 2020

It's not about "exposing the business" to me in the traditional sense so much as it that it breaks my suspension of disbelief, and I don't understand how you can watch something like this and not ask questions when the basic rules of the fictional universe are being broken. Where Cero and I differ ...

You can't "ask for the footage" of something we are told is happening live. or course you can, you ask for access to the live cam. You can probably do it with Bluetooth There were absolutely not "tons of nearfalls" in this match, especially given its length. - Matt Jackson gives Sammy Guevara at le...

Re: Your 5 star matches

I think there is a difference between "fun" and "great storytelling." They're not mutually exclusive, but they're not inherently connected, either, and people seem to have forgotten that over the past few years. I'll disagree with you about the Page and Omega thing because they already established ...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Double or Nothing 2020

10/10 for the main event? No. Surely not. But I am always fascinated when you and BRM do the same show review. I do find myself coming down on BRM’s side a lot more in terms of review. BRM watches everything with a ring, and these days I am far more of a casual. But while we tune in to AEW, we’re n...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW Double or Nothing 2020

I agree that it wasn't a cinematic, but to say it wasn't magic is more than a little silly when you had Matt Hardy transofrming underwater and drone-vision and so forth. Also, I disagree that it was a fight. It was an extended comedy sketch. If it was a fight, they would have been trying to win, no...

Re: Your 5 star matches

I loved the Stadium Stampede HOW? It was just a bunch of goofball sh*t with no story. cuz it was fun. It was the big climatic ending fight of a superhero movie. Tons of references to their previous matches, the action itself was really good executed, and while it may not had a story of 'wrestling p...

Re: 2 Cents: VICE"s Dark Side of Wrestling

I've been thinking about this a bit. Is the criticism for "not stopping the show" not stopping it after the fall or after they knew Owen was dead? And, if it's the former, shouldn't the same criticism be applied to similar incidents that didn't result in death (Droz, Orndorff, Whitmer, Jesse Sorens...

Re: 2 Cents: VICE"s Dark Side of Wrestling

I've been watching season two weekly. The Owen episode was the frist one to make me well up. It was just so heart breaking! Personally I didn't know the Hart family didn't support Martha Hart afterwards and some actively worked against her. The strength of that woman to keep it together for her kid...

I haven't watched it. What did Dunn do to become a target here? The usual targets for this one are McMahon and Russo. it's during the JR interview, he was completely no-chill. Here's the exchange somewhat JR: Kevin, we don't know what's going on Dunn: He's dead, and you're back in 10, 9, 8, 7 It's ...

Re: 'Impact in 60' premiering on AXS TV next month

My guess is that the hook is going to be AJ Styles, Low Ki, etc. Any word on if they're getting paid for this? Even if it's a barter deal it's good for them, but if they're getting paid, it's possible that this is not what they really want the show to be but rather just something they can fill time...

Re: 'Impact in 60' premiering on AXS TV next month

Maybe this is a market-specific issue, but here in the NYC market "X in 60" is what they call the abbreviated version of the Rangers/Knicks/Islanders/Devils games that they air about an hour after the game ends, so when I first read "Impact in 60," my first thought was that it was going to be a hig...
