    Money In The Bank 2019

    I'm pretty sure they did it so that challengers like Hansen and Brody could lose without being pinned. The idea was that Bruno or Backlund would win by kicking their asses and then calmly strolling out the cage door. I don't know of any WWWF cage match that wasn't a feud ender.

    Money In The Bank 2019

    I haven't seen so much as a millisecond of Game of Thrones and I still probably won't watch this live. The Network makes it too easy to cherry-pick after the fact, which is a necessity with these interminable 4-hour PPVs.

    Ric Flair (sigh)

    I have no real opinion on Satin's reporting one way or the other, but Sasha walking out on the company would seem to lend credence to the idea that she and Bayley were pissed about losing the tag belts.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    According to Dave's Geeto obit, the Mongols idea came when he came across a book on Genghis Khan in a library. And as Ricky said, the success of the Mongols tag team led to legions of imitators the same way the success of the Road Warriors led to legions of juiced-up muscleheads in face paint.

    Greatest Match Ever Project

    It's not just the bell-to-bell in Omega/Okada, it's the way it progressed the rivalry while leaving the door open for another match between the two. It was Omega's first win over Okada after losing at Wrestle Kingdom and going to a time-limit draw at Dominion. And he did it in under 30 minutes after their previous two matches had gone 47 and then 60. But Okada came in with an injured neck, so the win had an asterisk next to it. And it marked only the second time Omega had hit Okada with the One Winged Angel (he hit it at Dominion, but Okada's foot was on the ropes), so the question of whether Okada could survive the move remained unanswered.

    Here's something that tempers my enthusiasm somewhat:

    The Wajima match really is that bad. You can literally hear the crowd laughing at Magee's offense at the 1:51 mark.

    WWE TV 5/13 - 5/19: Raw is Megaman

    It looks like they're trying to give Bray a split personality. It kind of reminds me of Abyss and Joseph Park. Is Chris Parks part of the creative team? Also, Rambling Rabbit completely no-sold being eaten. That's worse than Hogan popping up from Vader's powerbomb.

    Magee was clearly a hell of an athlete, but he was also nowhere near ready for prime time. He couldn't even take an inverted atomic drop properly, and he kept moving out of position for Bret's offense. With that said, it really is astounding that with his look, size, and physical gifts, nobody could figure out how to draw money with him. I guess the issue was that he needed someone who had experience working with guys like Tiger Mask and knew how to really accentuate his strengths. Off the top of my head, I can't think of anyone from that period other than Bret who fit that bill. Looking at the house show results on thehistoryofwwe.com, Magee spent 1987 working with the likes of Terry Gibbs and Frenchy Martin. No wonder he never progressed as a worker.

    Aja had a MOTYC with Hikaru Shida last year, so she can still go, although probably not on a nightly basis. With that said, it's a midcard trios match in front of a foreign audience, so she'll most likely just serve up her greatest hits. Do some crowd brawling, hit an uraken or two, maybe whack some people with her garbage can.
  11. WWE is in London for the Money in the Bank go-home shows. This should tell you everything you need to know: But who cares about any of the geeks on Raw and Smackdown when the legendary Bret Hart/Tom Magee match is finally set to see the light of day? I have no idea what's going on in Brazil right now, but Arizona recently legalized nunchucks, so there's your topical item for this week.
  12. I've heard from a few places that Taker really does need the money. I don't know the specifics, but I can only imagine what kind of alimony he has to pay after two divorces. That would explain why he's started hustling for outside bookings (and charging ridiculous money from what I hear) as his in-ring career winds down.
  13. They also announced HHH/Orton for the Saudi show. LMAO.
  14. If 90s WCW was the unauthorized fanfic of 80s WWF, does that make the Saudi shows the unauthorized fanfic of 90s WWF?
  15. Two years before the beginning of the Jumbo/Misawa feud, this is the first high-end All Japan six-man. It should come as no surprise that a match with Kawada and three guys who would end up in WAR would have plenty of hate and violence, although most of it comes from Jumbo's team. Kabuki provides the match's highlight when he unloads on Fuyuki with a punch combination that would leave Bill Dundee green with envy. Overall, though, Jumbo is the star of the show, as he plays the ace role to perfection. He shows enough vulnerability against his lower-ranked opponents to make them look credible, but he's always a chop or a big boot away from reasserting dominance and showing that he's The Man. Jumbo shooting an icy glare at Hara after bodyslamming Fuyuki is such a badass spot. This really is the predecessor to the Jumbo/Misawa and NJPW/WAR multi-mans.
