    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Chikara was the best show I ever went to. 3 pm on a Sunday after and I was done by 5:30. Good variety of matches and the main was the only thing that went longer than 12 minutes. I went to one RoH show that started at 6:30 and it's fucking 11:30 and they do a 40 minute main that went until past midnight. This was in Dayton so I had about an hour drive home. I couldn't get out of that show quick enough. Edit: I was also sitting next to a guy that had to weigh at least 500 lbs. because he was sitting in a chair but he was practically sitting on me too because his fat was just laying on me. I'm questioning my life decisions right now...

    Honestly, any show that goes over 3.5 hours starts to become boring to me especially live. Some of those RoH shows I went to live went 4-5 hours and I was just done by the last hour each and every time.

    Wrestlemania IV is a total slog of a show.

    The Lapsed Fan goes over their TV really well. They got backed by the Christian Broadcasting Network around 1981 and got syndicated and some absurd amount of money for production like 20k an episode.

    Minoru Suzuki. He might not check the size box though.

    WWE TV 05/03 - 05/09 Big Roman made little Bryan humble.

    It's a super messy situation and I think it's impossible to say who's telling the truth or lying there. But that's the jist of it as far as I remember it.

    Wow. I didn't realize it had only been 2 regular episodes before another recap. That's just ridiculous. I am probably going to give them to the next PPV and then dropping.

    She had a really good match with Awesome Kong about a year before getting signed and then had a solid stretch where just doing basic stuff competently made you look like a genius. Then good workers started coming up to the main roster and she got exposed as not being that great and she's just needed a break for a long time.

    Comic books and Manga Thread

    Spider-Man stands out even all these decades later. All of the books in that era have some degree of merit but it's obvious from the first page of Amazing Fantasy #15 that Ditko and Lee had something special on their hands. I like how fearless they were in changing the status quo early on too. It's funny people want to always take him back to high school and he graduated by about issue 24. Great cast of villains as well. I have been reading a lot of the new Marvel Conan comics. Those have all been fairly fun most months.

    I think her general lack of talent has something to do with it.

    They could really use his mind right now. It kind of feels like they don't know what the fuck they're doing. I know they lost a lot of their roster but the Nick Aldis act is just kind of tired and the Murdoch feud feels like filler to me. They also have had the heels win almost all of the major matches. The heels winning last week was just kind of fucking stupid because they already don't have good faces on TV and you've made Trevor Murdoch look like a dumbass at almost every turn.

    If they keep it up I am just going to drop my subscription. That is really lazy when people are paying for the TV now.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    That would explain a lot because he has gotten increasingly awkward in that period of time.

    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.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    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".
  17. 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.

    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.
  19. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.

    Current New Japan

    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.
