Re: BRM Reviews the 2/5/2020 Dynamite (meh)

ADAM PAGE & THE ELITE (Kenny Omega & the Young Bucks) vs. LUCHA BROS. & THE BUTCHER & THE BLADE (w/the Bunny)- 7/10 Much action happened. The important thing you need to know is that Page could have tagged out but didn’t, resulting in him getting pinned by Pentagon Jr. Is it just me, or do we have ...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

Did they mostly "revolve around the babyfaces' story?" Yes. But to jot see the stories in their matches is utterly baffling to me. They ALWAYS worked a limb. I actually think the complete opposite of that. Outside of that random jobber match, the only big match I can recall where they work a body p...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

I don't understand how any one can watch their NXT work and not see their brilliance. They're a solid, consistent midcard tag team. I get what they're going for, but I never bought it because they aren't pulling it off. The Revival always came up to me as a barely improved version of Blake and Murp...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

#3 seems a bit premature, but that could definitely bite them in the ass soon enough. By signing random low level wrestlers to those "500k a year for 5 years™" deals, WWE is basically saying that this is the base pay on the main roster now. I didn't want to comment on the Revival thread because I wa...

Re: Butterfly Effects In Wrestling

Alright, let's try. Itami/KENTA getting injured in 2015 lead to NXT signing more and more indy names and to what they (and everything else) are now. *incoming long, rambling mess* So, KENTA was clearly meant to win the 3-way at Unstoppable and beat Owens at Beast in the East in Japan. He most likely...

And I also may or may not have said it here before, but...in all the irony of all the endless stuff with Reigns....take a look at what I'm about to say: Corbin has now effectively and fully become the new Roman Reigns, except as a heel. No matter what they just won't stop with him and this great bi...

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...

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.

Re: Let's have fun with this. Complete this sentence. "I may be the only person in the world who thinks this but..."

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...

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...

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 ...
