Re: The Wrestling Thread

The G1 so far has had plenty of outstanding matches, really good cards each day. I've got day 3 to watch tonight.

Suffered through Extreme Rules yesterday and the Raw highlights on youtube this morning. Totally predictable trash.

BtE was pretty good this week, wishing I was on Y2J's cruise now.

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Ciampa is my favorite heel right now, he could have a match with most of the faces on the NXT roster and make it a fantastic match for me. NXT is just so packed with guys I actually want to watch who will likely be buried when they go to the main roster I don't want them to leave.

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Kenny and the Young Bucks take the piss out of the 5*+++ myth in the latest Being Elite episode, quite funny.

Re: The Wrestling Thread

I watched the Cow Palace show, crap commentary, JR just knows next to nothing about NJPW. Great post Cody/Omega twist followed by another twist at the end. Cody/Omega was pretty brutal, 5*? Not so sure. Big botched powerbomb from Omega to Cody to the outside, meant to put Cody through the table but ...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Hope you managed to off load the tickets to recoup the money?

The full shows are on NJPW World as of last night, started watching Night 2.

Re: The Wrestling Thread

I saw the complaints before the show (and I'd still agree Manchester had the better card), but not many people seemed to be complaining afterwards when they had watched the show ;) With the CEO x NJPW and RoH shows on the same weekend NJPW were spread pretty thin. A bigger pair of venues and the top...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Saw the NJPW event @ MK last Saturday. https://i.imgur.com/SyqBbFm.jpg?1 Felt like a proper NJPW event, some fun matches, some really good matches, but still only "house show" level. The final match between Okada * Ishii vs. Suzuki & Zak was nuts though, Ishii vs. Suzuki's upcoming war...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Carmella gets so many nasty comments directed at her I hope she goes on for a long rein with the title for nothing more than her responses to the people being upset with her approach to just about everything as she is really good at dealing with the heckles and it really winds up a section of the wr...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Yeah I've seen that Meltzer is indeed calling it the greatest match ever and as good as it was it isn't a match I'm itching to immediately watch again unlike some other matches I've seen this year or even like with previous Okada vs. Omega matches. I'm sure Meltzer will further break the 5 star syst...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

I'm lucky I never saw that. Great weekend of wrestling for me, did NXT @ Download over the three days and watched Dominion in the mornings before ending up to Donington. Dominion was really good, Jericho was the surprise performance for me (I knew Okada vs. Omega would be top draw) as he wasn't taki...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

I'm sure they did that in part because of the ITV wrestling show that is starting soon. Will be interesting what that ITV show is actually going to be like.

Is Regal moving across to run the UK arm now as well?

Re: The Wrestling Thread

Has it been announced if Smackdown is moving to a three hour show with its move to Fox later in the year? Only reason I'd want that to happen is to force WWE to move 205 to its own circuit for tapings and get a longer show to boot. I enjoyed the Alexander/Murphy match but I think NXT has had better ...

Re: The Wrestling Thread

I hear you with the PPV length, we tend to watch it over two nights most of the time. Only one I've seen live recently is the Greatest Royal Rumble and that was hard work in places. I really don't know where they are going with 205 as it needs a longer show to make the most of the talent they have a...

Re: The Voting Age

I'd be for lowering the voting age, but only if the ballot paper was changed to a small number of multiple choice questions that confirmed you understood your party's political polices.

Re: The Wrestling Thread

WWE's booking for Smackdown and Raw still makes my head hurt, especially for the "top" guys like Roman and Mahal. I only watch the short segments on youtube for those two shows now and I'd say I'm happier than I have been in a long time about WWE because of this. I do watch every PPV thoug...
