    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    I felt like his ringwork had been getting progressively worse before the allegations first hit. I know I had started to sour on him leading up to that. He had that really good match with Riddle and it's been kind of downhill since then.

    Yeah, I get the positives of it but he has a history of being a real bitch about anything remotely negative so it really just comes across as him being overly sensitive to anything.

    I remember reading that interview and going "of course he likes no fans".
  4. I would say yes because the stigma of that is something you can really never shake off even if you prove it wasn't true.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I avoid Twitter and most social media like the plague. I only bounce in to message people privately. I find all of Twitter to just be a garbage pile. Both sides are usually intolerable. I find the talent to typically be thin skinned babies about even the mildest of critique or something they find on a vanity search and I don't even know what the hell people calling themselves fans are doing on there.
  6. It lets her get on screen and not wrestle. Which I think for her is good because of her injury history. I hate the gimmick though.

    The Thread Killer Talks Too Much: The Recaps

    Yeah. I was going to PM you. I want to contribute to the new laptop fund.
  8. I just don't get this. You have a giant archive of footage. Throw that guy in a booth with Corey and Byron and then break down what he does well and needs to work on. It feels like it's a fixable problem.
  9. For my money. Low Ki vs. Samoa Joe Fight Without Honor is still the best match in RoH history and I've never quite seen a match like it since.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Early Thor is a tough read. I think Spider-Man is far and away the best title of that early Marvel stuff. Iron Man and Doctor Strange are probably the next best stories.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    That first 6 issue run of Hulk really stood out to me when I read all of the 60s Marvel output. It was the one series that IMO completely fell on it's face and you could tell by issue 3 that they were just flailing around trying to find some setup for the character that worked. You wouldn't even know it's the same character when he shows up in the Avengers a year or so later.

    It's probably the cheapest option. IVP finally starting selling their shows again but I think it's newer stuff and there just aren't any torrents out there because Gabe was sending C&Ds.

    Current New Japan

    Yeah. I would like to know too. I really fell off when they made it next to impossible to get their shows when DGUSA was a thing.

    Master List of All Pre-70s Footage

    Yes! That women's match is really solid and shows how much of a joke women's wrestling eventually became.

    It's funny you mention that. My mom used to mention stuff that my grandfather watched wrestling wise in the 50s. One that always stuck with her was the Iron Russian. I didn't know what the fuck she was talking about until I finally found results from Al Haft's MWA posted somewhere. Literally first match I saw, tag team called the Iron Russians. Literally I couldn't figure this out for 15 years.

    It took them 8ish years to finally do something I truly haven't liked with the World Title introduction. Having a stable direction that takes you somewhere, makes you want to see it and then gives it to you isn't lazy or bad. Most of the best angles in wrestling were simple concepts executed well.

    The Thread Killer Talks Too Much: The Recaps

    I hope you get feeling better. It was awesome getting to bullshit with you and do a podcast. We need to do another one when you're feeling better so we can bitch more about e-fedding. You can probably pull your drive even if the laptop is dead. I had that happen once and just got an external drive case for it. It's actually fairly easy to do. If you get a new computer shoot me a message and I'll help you through it.

    NWA Powerrr

    Aside from that angle the rest of the show was pretty meh. It feels like they're just spinning their wheels in a lot of areas.

    The Tag Title angle this week and was really fucking good. Tim Storm is such a great talent.

    Low Ki doesn't seem so much a cancer backstage as he just quits on you after 6 months.

    I think that speaks to how good Low Ki is that companies know they'll get burned eventually and still use him. Usually it's guys like ACH or David Starr where you just see them slowly burn bridges across a variety of promotions.

    Impact was kind of rebounding around that era. They were doing better houses than RoH was before the pandemic hit.

    I looked at results and I can't remember who that was with. I had forgotten about the Britt Baker concussion.

    I don't think so but there might have been follow up with details. Her deal was almost expired at the time or possible expired.
