Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 74

Because this cycle just won't stop, here's another week of it! We start with a camera man trying to interview Konnan in a parking lot, but the Parks and Bestia attack him. Here's Salina who just pick up her phone back while Konnan was lying on the ground. So much for this storyline... Jordan Oliver ...

Re: Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 73

I would think so too, except Ki said a few weeks ago that he was going to be in the middleweight division from now on. Now granted, the middleweight match at the PPV is most likely going to be Hart vs. Aries so they can keep Ki busy elsewhere for a little while, but that'd be odd to cut this promo a...

Re: Cero Reviews AEW ALL OUT

The one when he caught his legs in the ropes and almost fell head first on the outside looked awful and really could have ended horribly, the next one was nothing compared to it.

Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 73

Final show before War Chamber next week. We start with a Contra video, telling us they will destroy Lawlor for good tonight. Injustice (Kotto Brazil, Jordan Oliver and Myron Reed) vs. Gringo Loco, Air Wolf and Zenshi – *** They finally gave the Painfully Thin Trio an actual name. This was a spotfest...

Re: NWK reviews AEW All Out

The Cody match was the most obvious smoke and mirrors match in quite a while. To this day, I still remember this Roode vs. Dillinger match from whatever Takeover a few years ago where the crowd was crazy hot at the beginning because it was Glorious vs. Ten... and then they had to wrestle and the cro...

Thelone Reviews AEW All Out

Casino Battle Royale - ** So the Youtube video starts in the middle of this match with Rose already in the ring and the second group coming out and I'm like "What happened?". Much later, I learn that she was in the first group and eliminated everyone in short order. Anyway, this was slightly better...

Re: Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 72

Well yeah, but I'm very much done with the Lawlor vs. Fatu/Contra feud for the time being. I hope they both move on to something else after War Chamber. It's not like Fatu doesn't have credible challengers besides Lawlor (DBSJ, LA Park with his not-MITB guaranteed title match, Hammerstone even altho...

We start immediately with Warner being arrested "earlier today" after what happened last week. Quick rundown, then... El Hijo de LA Park vs. Zenshi - ** Match had its moments, but that was a disjointed and sloppy affair otherwise with a finish that came out of nowhere. Zenshi won with a weird spinni...

Re: In Regard To The Upcoming "Ratings War"

Except social media buzz/trending on Twitter/social "interaction" are pretty worthless metrics, because they don't mean anything financially, can be positive as well as negative, and can easily be meddled with via sockpuppet accounts for example. I think it was Kevin Owens who once said, after he wa...

Re: Fenix suffers leg injury at Big Time Wrestling show

It won't take long before they only let their roster work with select partners (AAA, OWE although I don't understand what this promotion is supposed to be, PWG? and NJPW?) and not just anywhere that isn't on TV. That's basically two of their three big matches in the toilet (and the third is not much...

Re: Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 71

The misting angle has been fine and frankly, the only noteworthy thing Contra has done since Kings of Colosseum , which is the issue unfortunately. They were running wild before Fatu won the belt, the announcers sold the title change big like it was the beginning of the end, and then... Contra didn'...

TV is still where the big bucks are today, so Nielsen ratings are very important for the time being.

Re: In Regard To The Upcoming "Ratings War"

I do think that the ratings war is almost a non-issue all things considered. I've read a few tweets from Dutch Mantell (I think in the middle of the Cornette drama the other day) where he said that it was four more hours of TV wrestling to add to the 3-hour RAW, 2-hour Smackdown, 2-hour Impact, 1-ho...

Re: In Regard To The Upcoming "Ratings War"

Despite how archaïc it sounds, it's most likely more reliable than whatever online metrics people tend to use. Also aren't there other rating systems, but they aren't used because they would expose how few people really are watching TV nowadays?

We're with Warner to start the show and he goes crazy with his chainsaw talking about SDR and Martinez. Short rundown with Aries vs. Austin being the only new match. SDR is in the ring to introduce Martinez, which leads to... Ricky Martinez (w/ Salina de la Renta) vs. Mance Warner - **1/2 Match went...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

ROH had enough talent and between now and them, they've had some good names come and go, but their execution has been terrible since day one. Nothing against Sakai, she has history with some top level Joshis, but she wasn't the right one to go with. They used Mayu to put over Klein, and they've all...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

It's the same problem as ROH. There isn't enough talent or time to so it well, but if you dont have one people look down on you as being sexist. At least ROH was trying to ride the #womensrevolution™ wave and WOH probably would have ended the same way the fifty other failed attempts did, but the ma...
