  1. Man, I had a set for CotG back in the day, right alongside my IWA gazettes from the two leagues I was in. Then efeds happened and they were free. Is that Filsinger Online thing worthwhile?

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    The fans' backlash against Roman can be summarized in two key moments. 1. Rumble '15. Bryan was the obvious fan favorite, we've all said this, blah blah blah. But, more egregiously... 2. "Sufferin' succotash." That one moment became such a meme that exemplified to the fanbase that Roman wouldn't be the conquering bad MF that they wanted but just another goody two-shoes like Cena.

    Better in ring decade 80s WWF or 90s WWF

    90s had peak Bret, peak Austin, peak HBK, and peak Foley. It has the greatest Rumble ever. It has two of the earliest widespread examples of the Ladder match, and both are great. That's my answer.
  4. Piper as a face and Hogan as a heel is what made me watch WCW in the first place, since they were early childhood favorites. Even though I can rewatch that stuff and agree that it's bad? Piper is still a top 5 for me.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    That's on par with most efed graphics circa 2005. Which means it's funny in multiple ways.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    Probably "if something is horrible then why accept a settlement," which is a very common mentality. It's an ignorant take, agreed, but it's not "you shouldn't have a job anymore" ignorant.
  7. I was going to share this in the DSOTR thread, because XPW, but it doesn't fit the current serious talks about the Flair incident. Somebody at another board shared that Jon Barber's XPW book, Bleeding Was Only Half the Job, has been released posthumously. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B099TL5Z3Z

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    Aren't the worst stories about RVD basically just "somebody was mouthing off and RVD punched them"? He never really came across as anything grander than an opinionated ass, and I think calling out people for this kind of thing makes him seem that much better. I won't condemn Dreamer, but holy shit he needs to learn how to shut his fucking mouth. Even a simple "I only saw him doing the helicopter" would've allowed him to save some face instead of just digging himself deeper and deeper the more he tries to defend somebody's shitty assault.
  9. It's also a wise career move, because there's literally nothing about his look, presence, or in-ring work that would make him anything but a job guy on the main roster. He at least gets to show he can "go" in NXT, in the event that he isn't offered a new deal when his current one expires, while a main show run would result in a lot of travel for nothing, and that helps future bookings elsewhere.

    Well, Spike's one of the most underrated workers of that era, so...

    AEW Dynamite - September 1, 2021

    That's the one thing I'll give DBZ, really. Their heels were built up amazingly...but it all required the audience to buy into the faces (Goku et al). "The chase" should be the hero overcoming obstacles, not just the villains constantly besting them. It's like people just think Austin/McMahon drawing all the money in the world, or how Sting and DDP were the most over faces against the nWo, barely happened. The heels create the obstacles and the heroes fight back. Gotta give the good guy a win now and then, even if it's just them fighting off the bad guys for a night.
  12. Empire Records era LaPaglia is pretty close to late 80s Keanu.

    AEW Rampage - 20th August 2021

    He'll avoid any possibility of getting sued, so he'll be Page's new buddy, Hangman Rotunda.

    AEW Rampage - 20th August 2021

    I would make it a point to watch every single week if they could guarantee a shoot headbutt into Omega's face.

    Deathmatch Wrestling: How much is Too Much?

    I'm with Rah on this one. At least Mr. Pogo would use his sickle to gash because he was a sadistic fuck, really working it while letting the "victim" gig between slashes. This was just sorta business exposing and further proves that the only GCW deathmatch workers who really have a clue have been Nick Gage and...well, anybody else that was big in CZW ~20 years ago.
