    Wrestlemania 37

    Leading up to Mania, a lot of people, myself included, were convinced that the WWE audience was rejecting Edge and Bryan had to be added to salvage the match and that Tribal Chief Head of the Table Roman was too badass for fans to boo. As it turns out, Edge got a huge reaction-even bigger than Bryan-and Roman was roundly booed. It just goes to show how hard it is to get a read on fan sentiment without actual live feedback. On that note, my favorite development of the weekend was the Fiend horseshit dying a horrible death as soon as it took place in front of a crowd whose reactions couldn't be controlled. That should put an end to arguments that there's a silent majority of Fiend superfans who need to be catered to.

    WWE has become a heel-run promotion

    Beyond that, the heels are the ones who form factions and look out for each other while the babyfaces are only in it for themselves. I don't know if it's Ayn Rand Kool-Aid seeping into the booking or what, but it surely plays a role in WWE's inability to get babyfaces over.
  3. I was legitimately impressed that Roman made sure Edge's shoulders were on the mat and didn't just stack him on top of Bryan. Nice attention to detail. Beyond that, it's nice to see that WWE remains a crapsack world where evil always triumphs because good is dumb. Of WWE's 14 championships, only three are currently held by full-fledged babyfaces. And one of them is the 24/7 title, which doesn't even really count.

    Hiroshi Tanahashi

    I'm pretty sure Tanahashi has the strongest combined resume of high-end singles and tags of any 21st century worker. The match with Okada at Invasion Attack is my pick for greatest IWGP title match, and the match with Nakamura vs. Suzuki/Sasaki that brother Clayton mentioned is my pick for greatest IWGP tag title match. How many other wrestlers can credibly claim to have been involved in both the best world title match and the best tag title match of a major promotion?

    Matches enhanced by their endings

    Bret/Piper at WM8 wouldn't be nearly as well-regarded without the finish. It's a great finish in its own right that stands out even more by virtue of being one of the few clean jobs Piper did in the WWF.

    Tetsuya Naito

    The Naito/Tanahashi vs. Okada/Nakamura tag right before WK8 is really good as well. Nailing Okada with a missile dropkick during the Rainmaker pose is probably the coolest thing Naito did pre-LIJ.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    We have some footage of Flair as a fat jobber in the AWA.

    2026 Nomination Thread

    Darby Allin The best underdog of this generation. Amazing seller and lunatic bumper. One of the few guys working today who can make high-flying offense look dangerous, like he's flinging his body at opponents like a missile. Excels at spots that are creative without feeling contrived. Also excels at making it look like he's genuinely catching his opponents off-guard with his dives. Spectacular, violent, and logical-he's the total package. Matches: vs. WALTER (EVOLVE, 6/23/2018) vs. PAC (AEW, 1/15/2020) vs. Brian Cage (AEW, 1/13/2021)

    Doesn't Hikaru Shida use the falcon arrow as a finisher?

    Manami Toyota

    For someone completely new to Toyota, I'd go with Big Egg Universe. It's the first joshi match I ever saw, and it remains one of my favorite matches of all time. For Toyota skeptics, I'd recommend watching her match against Kaoru Ito on 2/24/02. I wouldn't call it a great match, but she does turn in a legitimately great selling performance, both in general and of an injured body part (her back).

    Rick Martel

    I think the best Jumbo/Martel match was on 9/29/85 in the AWA.

    Manami Toyota

    The thing with Toyota is that she'd largely blow off long-term selling during the matches but would sell her ass off after the match. The idea is that she was pushing herself to her limits to win and give the fans all she had and felt the effects afterward. It's not my preferred psychology, but there's a clear logic behind it.
