    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    I thought Gage was perfect in his role in that match. He is a Tank Abbott style streetfighter, an archetype which has a long storied history in MMA. He basically got squashed, but both of his hope spots were great, Kross working a traditional MMA striker only to get smashed with a barfight headbutt was awesome, and the outclassed tough guy refusing to tap and throwing up gang signs as he passed out ruled too. He didn't do anything to remove himself from narrative world of Bloodsport (it wasn't like Kross had to lay in the corner while he did his bootscrapes, or like he grabbed a light tube or anything) which is different then say Hammer and Kratos throwing in a terrible New Japan forearm exchange. I was at the Mania weekend Bloodsport and thought it was a slightly better card, but overall this was a heck of a show, and I thought Barnett vs. Dickinson was a top 10 MOTY, and the Makowski vs. Gulak match on the pre-show was also excellent I think Lawlor has been his best in AIW, he had a great series with Dom Garrini and a couple of really cool matches with Eddie Kingston. Whatever you think of GCW, they tend to be pretty professional in delivering what they tease and have built that kind of reputation with their fans. It would be very out of character for them to tease something like Batista coming in with no plan to make it happen. Both Batista and Rocky worked wrestling matches while they were acting in movies, I don't see why a GCW match would be an insurance issue, but working a garbage brawl with Helmsley wouldn't be. We reviewed the whole thing here http://segundacaida.blogspot.com/2019/09/tuesday-shoot-indies-gcw-josh-barnetts.html

    I wouldn't say Bloodsport had no hype, the hashtag was actually trending on Twitter during the show which is pretty big for an indy show. Also there is no way that Kross cuts that promo unless they already worked out the Batista match.

    Yeah it really doesn’t matter who is in it, you could have 1983 Sangra Chicana, 1997 Santo, 1989 Dandy, 2009 Rush, 2013 Black Terry and 1987 Satanico and it would still suck

    The obvious one is the Houston footage which was used from NWA On Demand, and is sitting unused with Billy Corgan. I also think they should make a deal with PWG, they have a pretty big back catalog with lots of Young Bucks matches

    Apparently Brodus Clay was working as a Fox Nation talk show host and just got axed for sexual harassing his co-anchor https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-nation-star-tyrus-accused-of-sexual-harassment-by-co-host-britt-mchenry

    Is this the only Flair vs. Rich match on tape?

    I went to a show where the main event was Rambo vs. Disco Inferno in a cage, I don't remember it being good. Northern Indies in the 90s were rough

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    Come on man, if someone can't comment on AEW unless they watch a bunch guys dicking around on web series, certainly someone shouldn't make some giant pronouncement on Rush without watching CMLL.
