    AEW Rampage - January 21, 2022

    I really think AEW should try to work out a TV deal in Canada for Rampage. I think I checked out the TSN app to watch AEW like once and didnt really like it. And I'm sure they would get more viewers if it was on actual TV.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    I would enjoy seeing Dixie Carter show up managing EC3.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    I thought with WarGames, NXT was just dropping the tag "Takeover" from their Specials, but I wanted to look up when their next one was, and couldn't find anything. Did NXT cancel having specials completely?

    Men on a Mission did the "Whoop There it is" thing earlier in the 90s.

    WWE TV 01/17 - 01/23 Estoy en Uruguay amigos

    I really liked the Creed brothers match. I'm happy they are continuing in the tournament, although the end of the show seemed like it too obviously hinted at them being the winners, which means they probably aren't going to win. I was hoping to see more of the big Creed brawling with Walter during the last couple minutes, so I hope that's a match we see coming out of this.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Maybe they will bring in Colonel Klink as his manager.

    I really liked seeing the ROH invasion segments on this weeks show. That was a lot of fun. And when they showed that backstage segment setting up Ziggy Dice vs Moose later in the show, I was excited that one of the arcade games in the background looked to be WWF Wrestlefest, which was my personal favorite wrestling game I have ever played. And that giant pizza looked awesome. And then they brought in Ian Riccaboni in to call the main event, that was awesome. It was funny though, right before the main event the announcers were on camera talking about Mickie Jame, and they dubbed in audio of Tom talking about the Royal Rumble. The problem was because the announcers were on camera, the audio didnt match their lips, and when the audio stopped the announcers kept talking with no audio on screen. You think the could have also showed shots of the crowd or imposed a Mickie James graphic on top of the screen instead. I am excited to watch Jonathan Gresham wrestle a Pure Rules match next week.

    AEW Dynamite - December 22, 2021

    As long as they bring Mauro Ranallo in to do commentary they'll be fine
  9. I tend to fast forward squash matches. I usually DVR wrestling so I can skip the commercials, as nothing too surprising seems to happen any more. I don't watch Dark, and if all wrestling tv was just squash matches I would probably stop watching. Even today with WWE when I had the Network, it felt like the tv except for maybe the week after a PPV was filler and only the PPVs felt worth watching. I can imagine a future where wrestling moves more towards a Lucha Underground style where there are no PPVs and the tv just builds to itself. I do think there should be more short promos from the underneath guys. That is one thing I do miss from old wrestling.

    Vince is totally Mr Burns, and Bruce Prichard is Mr Smithers. I can totally imagine Vince saying something like "Bruce, remember that fat man I used to ride to work?" Or singing a Disney song about wearing a gorilla chest.

    NXT War Games: TakeOver Has Been Taken Over

    They showed this on Sportsnet 360 in Canada, the same channel that shows Raw and Smackdown, and I still wasnt interested in watching it. The old vs new thing really didnt seem that interesting.

    AEW Dynamite - December 1, 2021

    I liked Andrade's brawling. I'd like to see some more of his out of the ring brawling. Maybe against Moxley or against Proud and Powerful. The weird finish aside, I really enjoyed the main event.

    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    Whenever I hear "Bear Country" the first thing that I think of is the Berenstain Bears children's books. That's where the Berenstain Bears live. I can't be the only guy here for whom that doesn't come immediately to mind.

    The Best and the Worst or most overrated

    Where does CM Punk and Eddie Kingston fit on your list? Both are great promos.
