Thelone Reviews MLW Fusion Episode 70

Short rundown of the show to start, then... Bestia 666 (w/ Salina de la Renta) vs. Rey Horus – *** Good little brawler vs. high-flyer match. Post-match, SDR throws herself some flowers for this great match and claims to be the best female promoter in the history of pro-wrestling, then she starts bit...

Re: Orange Cassidy Signs With AEW

The UK scene is very much the same issue ROH had with NJPW/BC/Elite. Instead of just moving on or at least using the newly-signed WWE UK talent (and ZSJ) in a way that doesn't hurt their promotions/current talent, they just kept booking them on top and made what is supposed to be the next wave look ...

Re: Orange Cassidy Signs With AEW

You guys are missing one crucial point. Wrestling traditionalists already don't care for AEW. I think they'd rather have all of the goofs concentrated in one place (well... two places, but WWE's goofs are a different kind of goofs) so that they can only ruin one promotion at a time. Pretty much thi...

Re: Marko Stunt Officially Signs With AEW

If basic things like that take you out of the 'reality', then maybe AEW is not for you, nor is WWE, or CMLL, or AAA, or NJPW, or many other promotions. Well I'm not watching any of those (except AEW right now obviously), so at least I'm consistant. we are only 3 shows in, what are you expecting wit...

Re: Marko Stunt Officially Signs With AEW

Of course it works together, that's technically what New Japan is. Being 'sports-like' doesn't mean you emulate the NFL and that we all pretend this one is actually 'real' pro wrestling, hell, sports are more entertainment than entertainment itself. It's 2019, not a single person above the age of 1...

Alright, let's see. This It's wrestling, it's fake anyway. and this Tournaments don't need faces and heels, especially when you tell your fans you're preparing a more sports-like product. just don't work together. If you want to be sports-like, you can't have hadoken spots/horrendous comedy/libraria...

Re: Bob-O Reviews MLW Fusion #69 (Nice!)

I'm nit-picking, but this was bad. I missed the point of the Harts losing their rematch clause because I was so hung-up on them being across the street from the dealership. You want to make these guys look rich, so much so that they hyped up this segment, do something else if you can't get them clo...

Re: Marko Stunt Officially Signs With AEW

you say all those things like they're bad things. Not everyone needs to be having 5 star matches, and tons of wrestlers have made HOF careers out of being 'hardcore guy' with terrible bodies. Janela still has tons of charisma and not all his matches rely on things that would get censored on TV. Sam...

Might as well put mine I guess. Jimmy Yuta vs. Low Ki – Squash Just another Ki squash, I think we got the point now. Backstage, Ki says that he has unfinished business. Well, work on it instead of KO-ing jobbers then. Contra accept Lawlor's challenge, but make it a 4vs4. They explain the War Chamber...

Re: Marko Stunt Officially Signs With AEW

like who? When you remove "hardcore guy" and "taking stupid bumps" from Janela's "arsenal", he's a below average worker who looks like shit. Apparently TNT won't let them do hardcore matches and Allin has more upside as a guy who can take a ridiculous bump from time to time, so Janela is kinda usel...

Re: Bob-O Reviews MLW Fusion #68

So I take it that Matt Striker is no longer on commentary? I think they alternate between Schiavone and Cornette depending on their availability (and Striker when both of them aren't available I guess). It should be Tony for the remainder of 2019 and maybe Jim for the PPV in november. Not this week...

Re: Bob-O Reviews MLW Fusion #68

It took me two or three weeks to understand what was happening. The only thing I still don't understand fully is the Myron Reed/Jordan Oliver/(now) Kotto Brazil angle. From what I got so far, they were babyfaces that got foiled by heel tactics in the past, are bitching about MLW for not doing anythi...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

NXT UK contracts killed the British scene. Not unlike ROH's MSG show, the Wembley show exposed Progress' issues to the world : relying too much on talent that are contracted elsewhere and can't use however they want (WALTER is still the champion and obviously won't job or even appear), and not real...

What did I miss about Tyler Breeze the last time he was in NXT? I started watching right at the end of his run... Breeze, Tyson Kidd, Neville... I never felt like Breeze "ran" anything.

Re: ROH announces Global Wars Espectacular tour with CMLL

Am I really? It's been a slow but steady retreat with Okada and Tanahashi barely coming back since 2017 and NJPW sending lesser and lesser stars for the ROH tours despite being treated like gods since day 1 (the biggest star they had this year was NAGATA and yes, I get that the G1 Supercard was a me...

Well it bombed horribly if that was the point, but I'm also one of the few who thought that the Cody/Allin match didn't work because it felt like Allin survived his own blown spots more than anything Cody did. ... because the moment Page beats Jericho...

That would work... if you make him a heel. I mean, he would basically become what he despised the most in WWE : a part-timer. That could have some legs, but it's the same promotion that can't even do basic booking right, like don't have one of your top stars go twenty minutes against a lower midcard...
