  1. If you haven't heard about this yet, here are some of the details as I understand them. Brett Dibiase was indicted for embezzling from his father Ted Dibiase's faith based non government organization. At the same time, Brett Dibiase ran the Mississippi Department of Human Services during which time that government agency awarded $2.1 million in welfare funds to Ted Dibiase's non profit some of which ended up in Brett Dibiase's pocket. Anybody down in Mississippi know more than this or know more accurate details than whats being said online?

    Best In The World 2025?

    As if Nomura will still be wrestling in 5 years with the bumps he takes.

    Wasn't average attendance for the Flair vs Steamboat matches in 89 only like 6,000? Those matches happened at a low point for NWA/WCW so its not fair to compare to Omega's NJPW run. I've said it before here, but I feel as though if you gave any half way decent gaijin in that spot where a big 2 year long push was followed by main event programs with Okada, Jericho, and Tanahashi and they would have drawn the same. Jay White and AJ Styles attendance number as champs and as top gaijins are slightly better that Omega in that same spot. If there's to be an arguement about Omega as a draw, its not that his run didn't draw well, but rather it drew well because of who he was working with and he drew comparably to other people who were in that same spot.

    "Triple H shoots himself in the foot" thread

    @Laz Nope. I didn't think it was funny but I didn't find it offensive at all. Yeah exactly, that's the joke. Its not a good joke or a funny joke but that is the joke.
  7. Thought I just had in the shower, Mick Foley's run as a top guy in WWF normalized what I consider the two biggest problems I see in modern wrestling- career threatening dangerous bumps and bad skit comedy. Sure there were other people during my childhood who got over risking their well being with dangerous bumps and sure there were guys who got over doing stupid comedy sketches, but there was nobody who drew as much money or had the same level of success doing those two things as Mick Foley. So my question is, if Mick Foley hadn't had the level of success he had, would we now have the dangerous bumps and excessive violence that seems to plauge modern wrestling? And if Mick hadn't had the level of success he did, would we have the horrible terrible comedy we see every Monday night in bad sketches and on the indies with dick flips and the Invisible Man, etc?

    2020 Wrestlemania Weekend

    Jay White, Rush, Dragon Lee, PCO, and Marty Scurll all anounced for Super Card of Honor
  9. Nakamaki retired in the early 2000s after spending most of the 90s bouncing from one sleazaresu/ garbage indy to another. He was sort of suposed to be like a poor man's Onita. Hiroshi Ono only worked IWA Japan for a few years and never popped up anywhere else.

    Does Kota Ibushi have the best punches in wrestling?

    Wrestle Kingdom 14

    Loved the opening 8 man tag. It was just chalked full of nostalgic moments and really was a great way to kick off the show. The two filler tags were perfectly fine with some nice little moments sprinkled in. I really enjoyed the tag title match. I've been high on both Finley and Robinson since they debuted in New Japan so it was a feel good moment to see them win. Archer vs Moxley was my match of the night, just absolutely brutal. I fell asleep during the junior title match. I know a lot of people here loved it, but i have a hard time staying awake during Will Ospreay matches. I don't know if its the same reason I fall asleep every time I'm dragged to the ballet or if its just his matches are usually in the middle of a card and after two to three hours of watching anything while on the sofa I doze off. I dunno. Thought Naito vs Jay White was ok nothing great nothing bad. Loved Okada vs Ibushi. Typical Okada main event, started out dreadfully slow, picked up in the middle with some dangerous bumps and stiff dangerous shots and finished red hot.

    No. Dolph Ziggler is a bad motherfucker who set NCAA records for pins and sleeps with famous actresses. On paper he is everything you want from a top guy.

    26,000, 35,000, and 38,000 are not sell outs in a 65,000 seat building. And continuing to claim otherwise discredits any point you make.

    Current New Japan

    Oh absolutely with the MSG show. People assumed that the main event would be Omega vs Okada not Jay White vs Okada. As for the Dallas and Long Beach shows, they did fine without the Elite, not great but fine.

    Current New Japan

    I think we may be jumping the gun saying NJPW wasn't successful in the US. I mean They did sell out MSG and have had a number of shows that sold between 5000 and 7000 tickets. Its far from an abject failure just because they don't want to be in bed with AXS's new ownership.
