Re: Day-to-Day Quote Topic

this show will have a full card, i don't know where they're wrestling, maybe their living room? https://twitter.com/WillOspreay/status/1238526782929883137 Maybe they're trying to one-up RVD, Katie Forbes, and Jen Barlow getting TNA kicked off of Twitch?

Re: March 12. Wrestling reacting to Corona Virus Report

Yes, but the Pure Title return puts ROH in a position where it would be effective to use some of its library. Ever since NJPW cancelled the NJCup, and now with both ROH tournaments, assuming you can still fly in everyone, I don't know why the opening rounds couldn't be taped with no crowds, it's ju...

My fear is that they'll have him do a Kane and interfere in Blood & Guts.
Maybe, there are many people that could end up running in on that match.

And the problem, of course, is that is that NOBODY should be running in on that match. That's half the reason the cage is there!

Re: BRM Reviews the 3/11/2020 Dynamite

I also kinda feel that it was lackluster, I take it they didn't want to wait to debut Archer, but maybe targeting Cody while he's building a B&Gs match wasn't the best idea, because now they can't go full contact until afterwards. My fear is that they'll have him do a Kane and interfere in Blood & ...

Also, ROH has cancelled this weekend's shows, WWE has cancelled their house shows, and moved SD to the Performance Center.

RTIZ (w/Santana) vs. CODY RHODES (w/Brandi Rhodes & Arn Anderson)- 6.5/10 Jake Roberts and Lance Archer showed up in the crowd. This was a shockingly anticlimactic way to reveal Jake’s client. I disagree. I feel like Jake Roberts wouldn't be the kind of guy to say "Ladies and gentleman please welco...

Re: BRM Reviews the 3/9/2020 Raw (DREW MCINTYRE IS A HORRIBLE PERSON!)

Oh I just remembered...I meant to say before...why did they overhype and overpush the RKO on Beth Phoenix? It's an every day finisher that never keeps guys down more than 3 seconds and they're fine the next week. Plus, Woman or not, it's Beth Phoenix. Not Maria from 2005. I get it was a great huge ...

And if you look and listen other places (a lot of Keller's people, Jason Powell and his people, people like me... and, yes, people more in the Jim Cornette mindset) he's a huge turn-off. You are making this assumption that everyone who dislikes these things "hates AEW because it's AEW" and is thus ...

Re: BRM Reviews WWE Elimination Chamber 2020

You rated the tag team chamber match way higher than I would have. It felt like a botch fest the whole time. I have a different threshold for botches than other people. To me, slipping and mis-timing are natural occurrences and would happen if this were real. I'm more bothered by people selling pha...

He's the Arliss principle in reverse. Arliss was one of HBO's lowest-rated shows, but HBO kept it going because enough of Arliss' viewers were subscribing only for Arliss.
