    WWE TV 11/11 - 11/17 Dark days indeed

    It worked for Brock vs. Cena ER12. Otherwise, I strongly agree. I don't think Mauro is bad (or good for that matter) but why is he constantly yelling?

    The Official Seth Rollins is Terrible Thread

    I'm not Seth fan but he is right in this case. Meltzer did a terrible job reporting the incident. Whether it was just a mechanical issue or something more, he was deceptively vague and exaggerated the gravity of the situation. It was essentially fearmongering.
  3. So did they really have Cain job to Brock to setup Brock vs. Rey? I mean, don't get me wrong, that's an awesome matchup but the booking seems backwards.

    WWE Presents Crown Jewel: Halloween Pumpkin Spice Edition

    I feel people are dismissing Cain based on almost nothing.

    Is WWE redeemable?

    I think this description fits reddit's scjerk better. They are a shitpost subreddit that makes fun of the hivemind discussions of square circle (e.g. non-stop pro-AEW threads). A lot of it is accurate and funny but they go overboard and dismiss any legitimate criticism against WWE while mocking AEW constantly.

    [2019-10-06-WWE-Hell in a Cell] Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks

    The lack of transitions hurts this badly as they just move from one spot to another way too easily and do it too frequently. Also the finish is too sudden and doesn't really fit the buildup. Otherwise, I can't fault the violence, aggression and creativity. All in all, a well done spotfest. ***1/4

    Is WWE redeemable?

    This place is starting to sound like reddit's squaredcircle. WWE bad, AEW good

    Hell in a Cell 2019 - Card is not only subject to change, but is bound to

    Based on that main event, if kayfabe rules applied, the Fiend should squash Brock Lesnar in 5 seconds flat. Not exactly the ideal finish but they did make him look indestructible in a way.

    Wrestlers who are a Blessing and a Curse

    This is well said and I agree with the points made (though I'd change some great to many great). I guess I've become the resident Shawn Michaels defender but I'll say this is hardly his fault. I'm sure the wrestlers who idolized and modelled themselves after him don't remember him almost ripping Randy Orton's head off with a cravat or desperately punching Mr. Kennedy in the knee. He was able to balance that "I'm here to steal the show and entertain" mindset (which I admittedly hate) with a gritty, aggressive, urgent style in his post-comeback so the whole thing worked well usually. Others focus only on the former. Same case with Kobashi, not his fault others built their style around his worst aspects (endless chops, fighting sprit and no selling) rather than the things that arguably make him the GOAT.

    WWE TV 09/30 - 10/6 Posting quickly to avoid politics-inspired subtitles

    No Graves or Young and commentary is magically a lot better. Brock vs. Rey in 2019 is interesting. Their 2003 match is awesome and they probably would have knocked it out of the park in 2014/2015. Should be good though.

    Tetsuya Naito - Where he stands as a wrestler?

    Easily the best of the modern New Japan crowd. Most great matches, works well as heel or face, most consistent seller, easily the most charismatic. Can do minimalist character stuff but also work effective bombfests. Not perfect and can be inconsistent but the positives easily outweigh the flaws.

    NJPW G1 Climax 2019

    The Bullet Club/Shibata angle was gold. From KENTA refusing a tag and Ishii correctly anticipating an attack as he re-entered the ring to KENTA's motivation ("By rejecting me, you did this, not me") to the Shibata's vengeance to the final beatdown/posing. They pretty much nailed it.

    NXT Takeover: Toronto 2019

    Was Cole/Gargano III really that much more excessive? In fact, the excess made more sense considering the stipulation and escalation compared to the endless finisher kickouts of their first two matches.

    WWE Summerslam 2019

    Seth's rib selling wasn't necessarily bad but it wasn't good either. In his defense, midsection selling is not that easy but nothing he did truly stood out. The decisiveness of the finish was odd considering how Brock was been booked since 2012. So Rollins is the ace now? Nothing else could really explain that finish.
