BRM Reviews the 10/2/2020 ROH

FRED YEHI PROMO AFTER LAST WEEK’S VICTORY- fine JOSH WOODS PROMO AFTER LAST WEEK’S VICTORY- This was fine for what it was. Hopefully this actually leads to Silas getting annoyed at Woods for thinking he’s getting uppity and us getting a turn. RUST TAYLOR VIDEO PACKAGE/PROMO- fine TRACY WILLIAMS VIDE...

BRM Reviews the 10/1/2020 NXT UK

HERITAGE CUP TOURNAMENT QUALIFYING MATCH: Kenny Williams vs. Ashton Smith vs. Amir Jordan- 7/10 None of these three feel like they’re at the level of the other people in the tournament, so turning in a strong performance here to elevate the winner was going to be key, and they definitely did that.

BRM Reviews the 9/24/2020 NXT UK (disappointing)

SID SCALA IS IGNORED BY THE HERITAGE CUP COMETITORS BACKSTAGE- Yeah, Sid doesn’t feel like he really has much respect from the locker room. Alexander Wolfe didn’t like Noam Dar futzing around on his phone during this so he slapped the phone out of Dar’s hands. This kind of felt like it made Wolfe a ...

Re: BRM's Thoughts on the 2020 WWE Draft, and What the Future of the WWE Draft Should Be

I didn't see it in what I read, so sorry if I'm just parroting but.... Champions should be exempt from the draft, no exceptions The switcheroo of the Raw and Smackdown tag titles was so, so pointless. Like, sure, you could get a month out of a heel going "Ah, you didn't earn those belts" but then w...

UNDISPUTED ERA PROMO- very interesting Cole isn’t with them because he’s injured, so Kyle did all of the talking, vowing to find out who paid Ridge Holland off to attack Adam Cole and saying that if Holland hadn’t gotten injured, they would have injured him themselves. He also declared that the seco...

NJPW G1 Climax XXX: Day 13 (10/10/2020)- Osaka, Japan YUYA UEMURA vs. YOTA TSUJI- 5.5/10 Solid, as always. Yuya worked the arm. He’s going to be so damn good one day.

Re: BRM's Thoughts on the 2020 WWE Draft, and What the Future of the WWE Draft Should Be

Which is really a shame because I think it would have been a lot more interesting to leave Murphy on Raw, and have it revealed that either Rey, Dominik, or Seth (depending on how the story wants to go) lobbied Smackdown to not pick Murphy and later lobbied for Raw to take him (you probably need to ...

6. Seth Rollins moving to Smackdown is weird as well. to me it came across as FOX wanted Rey Mysterio on Smackdown and since WWE is not done with whatever that feud is, they just moved the whole feud over. Which is really a shame because I think it would have been a lot more interesting to leave Mu...

1. Retribution Let’s just get this one out of the way first. As many others have pointed out, the idea that the rebellious group that hates WWE and wants to destroy it would dutifully listen and go to whichever brand they were assigned to is ridiculous and is yet another thing that kills the gimmic...

Damn. I kind of figured that this was inevitable, but had no idea that it would be so soon.

BRM's Thoughts on the 2020 WWE Draft, and What the Future of the WWE Draft Should Be

As you all might have guessed by now, I stayed away from the draft for the sake of my own sanity. Now that it’s over, I do have some comments. The first part of this will be me musing about the various personnel moves and similar things, while the second part will deal with structure, logic, and pre...

Someone has moved an arcade down to ringside so that Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford can play video games instead of pay attention to the wrestling. Yes, really.

Re: Joey Ryan files $10 million breach of contract lawsuit against Impact

I'm pretty shocked that Anthem didn't have some "automatic dismissal for bad behavior" clause, as those are pretty standard most places (in the US at least). If this is accurate, than Anthem really f*cked up here by being sloppy in their rush to get the good PR. They could have achieved the same th...
