    NXT talk

    Holy Shit, the camera cuts in the opening match of the NXT UK show are enough to give you vertigo. I counted 6 during one somewhat lengthy move.

    WWE Crown Jewel: No Girlz ALLOWED~!

    If this show does get cancelled, just wait until he headlines the first ever all female PPV, since we can't have all this build up for nothing!

    Fire Pro World X New Japan

    Not into creating, no problem. Not into downloading.....I'd probably stay away. You can pretty much download any wrestler ever. From George Hackenschmidt to Lazer Tron to Adrian Street to Adam Cole, they are out there. But the game itself just comes with about 30 made up wrestlers, and the New Japan guys that were just released.

    They won't even let him take his fucking shirt off, they certainly aren't gonna put him on the main roster. Sorry, long time Hero fan, hate his NXT run.

    Fire Pro World X New Japan

    I'll be picking that up this afternoon! Though be warned it apparently only works if you are online. Not that you have to play online against other people, but your computer must be connected or the stuff that came in the DLC will not work.

    Under-the-radar wrestling book recommendations

    I will go ahead and second this one. I am about half way into the book and enjoying it quite a bit. Very fun and interesting read. Wasn't sure I would like it since I can't stand Double J, but his grandmother and father are quite alright!!

    WWE Hidden Gems

    I never would have thought to associate the words Hidden Gem and Super Calo, but the rest of those are pretty sweet!

    At least his English is a little better this time.

    Goodhelmet's Wrestling Weekend

    Sorry the Impact show sucked, but I have to figure the CMLL show will be amazing even if it's just for the atmosphere. Looking forward to your report! If you have time, maybe you can solve a mystery for me! Every time a lucha guy comes to an indy show in the States, they never have t-shirts bigger than XL. I've often wondered if that's because they don't have them, or they don't bring them!
  12. To answer your base question. I don't know that "nothing matters anymore" is the best phrasing for what it is that so many of us feel. Certainly there are things they could do creatively that would turn off large portions of their audience, get themselves kicked off of television, etc. Of course they won't do those things, they will continue chugging along, pumping out the same vanilla PG content that they have been week after week, month after month, year after year. For me at least, the feeling that I sum up as "nothing matters anymore" is what used to be versus what is. It has become quite obvious that the current product they are comfortable putting out has passed me by, and I just need to accept that fact. Getting mad about it, or bitching about it isn't going to change anything, because it's currently making them millions, so they have no reason to change a damn thing. I think back to when I started watching, sometime around 1986 and what things meant then. The titles meant something. The matches meant something. The stories and the build meant something. Feuds had pay offs. Guys had motivations. Now the belts don't mean shit. They run the pay per view main events six times before the pay per view. Feuds last a month, stories have no cohesiveness, and while guys used to feud because they wanted to be champion or they wanted to make more money, now they fight because of Twitter or because they threw coffee at each other. But where "nothing matters anymore" really comes into play, at least for me, is that feeling I used to get. That feeling that wrestling was worth my investment. When Ricky Steamboat finally won the Intercontinental Title, 8 year old me didn't give a fuck how many stars the match would get, or how well it would hold up 30 years later. I was just stoked as hell that The Dragon got revenge for his crushed larynx! I think back to when Flair won the 92 Royal Rumble, and how 13 year old me was amazed that the NWA guy just went an hour from number 3 to become the WWF Champion. Nobody had ever done that! I think back to watching ECW as a teenager and thinking I was cool as fuck because I was watching some shit no one around here knew about. That's all gone now. For all of their talk of Wrestlemania "Moments" and trending worldwide on Twitter, they have turned my 32 year hobby into a chore. Whether it is lack of competition, Vince hates wrestling, or whatever the reason. They have homogenized the main programming into a rinse and repeat show where each week they try to make it seem exciting, and they give away everything, all the while, nothing actually happens. Thank god for comps and the occasional good indy show.

    WWE Super Show-Down

    You are thinking too small! Forget about little old Wrestlemania. Why would Shawn Michaels return there. When instead he could return at.... The Greatest Wrestlemania (Live from The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia $$$$$$)
  14. This really seems to be the perfect description of the company these days. They've made all of the titles meaningless, they run the same shit over and over again and build to nothing, and when something does manage to catch fire, they either immediately squash it because it wasn't what they wanted to get over, they mismanage it so badly that no one cares anymore, or they repeat it so fast and so often that no one ever wants to see it again.
  15. I can't believe Jay Saldi stayed employed for as long as he did. His constant references to other promotions, putting over talent that didn't work for World Class, and just random rambling absolutely didn't seem like something that Fritz would put up with. I have been slowly making my way through the World Class on the Network, and I can't wait for him to be gone.
