    Which Kevin Sullivan is this?
  4. I thought this was an excellent 10 minute match between Kobashi and the more established at the time Kawada. The crowd really got in to this in the final stretch as did I, not knowing the outcome going in. Both wrestlers worked super hard, with some excellent Suplex's sprinkled in. ***3/4
  5. Meltzer comparing Ospreay with Hana was bullshit. Hana did nothing wrong at all, she was co-opted in to bullshit by the reality company and the fans went for her. Ospreay is people holding him to account. He badmouthed Pollyanna when promotions tried to book her, at the time he was a promoter, that went out of business owing talent, venues and fans a ton of money. Thousands. He booked the guy who Pollyanna accused of raping her. What Dave did is compare someone who did nothing wrong with some who blacklisted a sexual assault victim. He compared reality fans of a TV show telling someone to kill themselves to wrestling fans, to Ospreay who has adulation. He said the people who make the most noise care the least. There are a ton of fans who want promotions to do well and spend a ton of money complaining. You don't have to believe Scotty Wainwright sexual assaulted her or will Ospreay blackballed her, but you can't just dismiss those allegations like Dave did. There is so much circumstancual available, and this wasn't years ago either. It's so frustrating from a journalistic perspective. If we say you're good enough and you don't face consequences that encourages bad behaviour. The media shouldn't make exceptions. It's very enabling from people who should know better should t make exceptions for your friends. That's the issue here.
  6. Really been enjoying this series, especially the John Short tales.

    I think it's pointless adding anyone else. Dave's not going to put Jim Breaks back on either, rightly or wrongly.

    WON HOF 2018

    I've had US voters reach me out to me privately who wanted me to convince them to vote Daddy, so it's more than "the lulz".

    WON HOF 2018

    I couldn't vote for anyone else really until either Pallo or Daddy got it. Rocco really doesn't have an actual HoF case, he's a level down in my eyes.

    WON HOF 2018

    I had him on the first draft of my ballot this year, then after more thought, felt he should go on the ballot with David and Kevin rather than as singularly.
  12. GREAT Episode! Especially the Other USA and WCW sections with Scott Bowden.
