    2019 Match of the Year

    Fatu Vs Park is my MOTY, probably followed by Cody/Dustin.

    Thanks for the write-up, Coffey. I don't give a shit about Scurll and he makes me less interested in watching the show, but he's a good pick-up for them. I was hoping Luke Harper would show up.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    No, they didn't even reference it.

    So bummed they changed the advertised Davey Boy Vs Ohtani match to Davey Vs Ki. This latest show definitely had a last match of the tapings feel to it.

    AEW Dynamite Week 10 - Dec 4, 2019

    It's really unforgivable to start running this Brandi recruiting people angle when they just started doing something similar with the Dark Order (and doing so in a cool way with those commercials). I'd be pissed if I was the Dark Order. I enjoy this show, but I wish they had better wrestling, or at least more variety in the way people work. That Trent/Fenix match made me want to rip my eyes out. Utter dogshit. Even Dustin Rhodes is doing Canadian Destroyers for fuck's sake.

    AEW Full Gear

    I thought the broom with the barbed wire was dumb too. I got the cleaner reference, but it's still a guy carrying a broom. Maybe he should wear a pair of those slippers that have dusters on the bottom of them, wrap them in barbed wire, and then he can superkick Moxley in the face.
  7. Why is it all on Nattie? Charlotte put her in a no-win situation really.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    I watched the ppv and thoroughly enjoyed it. Probably my favourite show of the year, actually. I think all the matches delivered to some degree, with Hart/Aries, Thatcher/Lawlor and especially Park/Fatu being really strong. The main event had everything I wanted it to have, except for a new champion. Definitely worth the money.

    People say it all the time about all sorts of guys in all sorts of promotions. Yes, I've seen it said about Rey too.

    To be fair, she invited the comparisons on herself by giving herself the same job title as Steph, and playing something of a mother hen to the women's division.
  11. I've had this one too. It was at a WWE show, and they were trying to find obscure guys to shout, but it was just guys like Rikishi they were coming up with. And yeah, they all thought it was the funniest thing ever. At an indie show I had a bunch of guys in front of me being super obnoxious. They were shouting out jokes about Zach Gowen, who was wrestling, and they called one of the wrestlers a faggot. My wife had to stop me from saying something at that point, and I'm the most non-confrontational guy ever. I mean, apart from anything else, there's kids in the crowd. We ended up moving.

    WWE TV 08/19 - 08/25 The Return of the King of the Ring

    It's fucking garbage booking. Let's just call it what it is. They did the same thing with Becky having to apologise to Stephanie in the lead-up to Mania. They make the whole roster look like a bunch of pussies working paycheck to paycheck, just grateful to be there.

    Guy with false bravado who caves in when someone with more power threatens him is not exactly the sort of character I would think fans would want to get behind.

    Greatest Career Rehabs

    Yeah, some of these are just gimmick tweaks, or management deciding to push someone, which doesn't really count as a rehab unless the circumstances are extraordinary. Like, Mahal was just the company giving him the world title for whatever stupid reason. And it didn't really rehab him, since it actually just shone a light even more on how much he sucked. JBL was a bit different because he changed up his whole gimmick, did really well in the role (character-wise at least), and got a several year run as a top act out of it. I'd put Mark Henry in this category too, just for the way he knocked it out of the park during his Hall of Pain run and completely rehabbed his image to where people who always thought he was a waste of space were admitting that he was actually pretty good. Matt Hardy becoming broken is a good shout, as the guy had become a bit of a punchline in the years before that. CJ Parker I think was too early in his career to really need rehabbing. It's certainly surprising and to his credit the amount of success he's had in Japan though.

    Cody did pretty well after leaving WWE.
