Re: Lita, Gail Kim & Christy Hemme raising money for 'Kayfabe' pilot

Source: f4wonline.com Three former wrestlers launched a Kickstarter Monday in hopes of producing a pilot. Amy "Lita" Dumas, Gail Kim, and Christy Hemme are the trio pushing Kayfabe, a one hour show they say is half story, half in-ring action. From the Kickstarter: "It is an edgy, racy, cinematic te...

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/26/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

Swole didn't even occur to me as cosplaying. Why? Because she comes across as someone who has an actual personality. You say that the cosplaying isn't their personalities, but then what are their personalities? The rest of them are just "I'm a wrestler" wrestlers. All we know about most of them are...

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/26/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

I do want to like it. I want to like all wrestling. But if it's not good, I'm going to call it out. I didn't say my problem was the cosplaying. I said my problem was too many cosplayers in one place, and the fact their affinity for cosplaying is pretty much the only thing we know about most of them...

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/26/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

The one who Excalibur flat out said was wearing Anime-inspired gear. "Magic Girl" or whatever. Magic Girl is not an anime, it's a genre of anime, it's Yuka's gimmick to be a magic girl. Which means... what, exactly? The fact that the rest of us didn't know that is evidence that they're not doing a ...

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/26/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

Not finding excuses to shit on a show. This presentation of wrestling isn’t for everyone. It’s part of the reason why the industry is not as popular as it once was. And it’s definitely not for me and many others who value good wrestling, a serious presentation and a good story. implying that this i...

Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

Incorrect. Keeping them in the box is dumb (unless the box is REALLY cool). The correct way to use them is to set up elaborate displays in cases, which you can change every six months or so if you get tired of admiring your own artistic greatness. touchee, i've been out of the action figure game fo...

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Revolution (frustrating, bordering on bad)

AEW are in the position where they have to sign what they can in order to bulk out their roster , they do have a lot of relative unknowns and younger talent, so a smattering of over 40's is okay. If Bischoff, Nash, Hall and Hogan sign, then we'll start worrying. Yes and no. Their roster is already ...

Re: BRM Reviews AEW Revolution (frustrating, bordering on bad)

It's interesting to see that Cero's review has this down as an amazing show, whilst yours has it down as borderline bad. It just goes to show, that for people who like this kind of wrestling, this is the kind of wrestling those people like. On JR's commentary. It's become clear that he doesn't give...

On a different note, am I the only one who's concerned about the fact that the only people AEW is signing lately (or rumored to anyway) are a bunch of older guys in their 40s?
I think they have a good enough young talent base that it doesn't bother me.

Re: BRM Reviews the 2/26/2020 Dynamite (very bad)

posing can work with certain characters (Ilja Dragunov, Cara Noir). My problem with Pentagon Jr. is that when he does it during a match, it feels like he's doing it just to get a pop. Exactly. Instead of doing a flip, he'll do his (overly long) glove throwing and/or yell cero miedo in his opponent'...
