    Post-Mania TV 2019

    This has been a really awesome episode of RAW but that was a very flat wrench thrown into the main event..

    That was the funniest chokeslam ever. Reminiscent of Kane with his mask at the Saudi show.

    Barbaro Cavernario vs Titan (CMLL 2/22/19) Fantastic, fantastic match. Great use of dynamic flippy offense at just the right times for maximum effect. Titan's brief but spirited comeback in the second fall was excellent, using a cascade of big moves to even the match. Cavernario is great and his beatdown in the second fall was more vicious and thorough than I would have expected, good stuff. Final fall has lots of worthy fireworks and big spots. Probably my match of the year at this moment.

    Darby Allin vs Austin Theory (EVOLVE 2/15/19) Really good match with Darby using nasty work on Theory's fingers and making it work as an underdog babyface. Stretches of this were more solid than great, including a lot of the body of the match, but it really kicks into something special in the last few minutes. Great Darby performance especially.

    I love that 4 way match too. Couldn't remember when it took place.

    WWE/NXT 2010s MOTD List

    I just remembered Strowman vs Joe vs Lesnar vs Reigns from SummerSlam 2017. That might sneak into my top 20.

    I might throw the Usos vs New Day hell in a cell on the list somewhere

    All solid picks that line up with my thinking. I would have to throw Gargano vs Almas from last year NXT as well.

    Matt Riddle vs. Drew Gulax (NXT 2/6/19) Great grapple battle. The mat wrestling takes up most of the runtime and both guys really got to shine in this. Gulak looks great but it all builds to Riddle's big deadlift powerbomb and knee strike combo. Really good concise match and it got over too. PAC vs. Kzy (Dragon Gate 2/10/19) World-class performance from PAC. He doesn't always do a ton for me but he was great here. Great sense of pacing, ferocious strikes, showed enough weakness to make Kzy look great, really in control of the match. Kzy had his moments and an especially great dive to the outside to jumpstart his comeback but this was PAC's performance that led the way. Really good match.
  10. That should be really good, I'm glad they are fitting that in.

    Ben-K vs Shun Skywalker (Dragon Gate 2/5/19) There were details about this I didn't love (rope-running tropes, some strike exchanges that went on too long, bits of overplayed fighting spirit stuff), but it hit the mark big-picture. I have been pretty impressed by Skywalker. He has a lanky body so he reminds me of a sort of young El Generico, and he was pretty good here with his bumping and flying. Ben-K brought good personality and his offensive attack had a nice focus, he was a good bully here. This also ended at just the right time. Sasha Banks vs Ronda Rousey (1/27/19) Maybe my match of the year so far. I thought this was awesome. Everything was a real struggle. Great submission back and forth. I loved Ronda's body shots and her desperation throws. Great match.

    Interest in a Puerto Rico watch project?

    Cool. Group created and invites sent out. I would love for more people to join in.

    Interest in a Puerto Rico watch project?

    Cool. If you two could send me your emails I can send you invites to the group.
  14. I was wondering if anyone would like to join in and do a watch project for the Puerto Rico 80s set. What I was thinking was keeping it real simple, like one match a week. We could set up a Snack and even try to set a time when a majority of us could watch and live chat during the match. Of course discussion would stay open beyond that as well. My thinking is that it would make a fun community project that would be relatively low stress to join. I want to watch through the set but I think some varied discussion will help it not get old after awhile. If anyone is interested just let me know and I'll set it up!
