  1. Yeah was just gonna say that about the lack of blood. It spoils immersion a bit that these huge strong guys are brawling all over the place and not a drop of blood is spilt. Still, this was a great match. My favourite moments were Braun getting speared into the announce table, which doesn't break, so Bobby just tips the table on top of him. Then soon after Bobby runs at the barricade and attempts to jump and leap off it, but loses his footing so Braun catches him and throws him across the floor. I'm not sure if these were planned or fantastic improvisations from botches, but either way they felt an authentic part of the chaos. Braun breaking through that wall to emerge victorious was badass. ****

    So I got round to seeing that guy and making some subtitles for 1993-94 Joshi. I've uploaded the result here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5K9W_SQvmc 00:00 - Pre-Match interviews for Aja Kong & Bull Nakano vs. Eagle Sawai & Harley Saito - Dreamslam 1 04/02/93 01:55 - Pre-Match interviews for Akira Hokuto vs. Shinobu Kandori - Dreamslam 1 03:19 - Akira Hokuto's in-match promo - Dreamslam 1 03:36 - Akira Hokuto's post-match promo & interview -Dreamslam 1 05:37 - Pre-Match interviews for Aja Kong vs. Yumiko Hotta - 01/24/94 07:26 - Post-Match promos between Aja Kong & Akira Hokuto - 01/24/94 09:43 - Post-Match promo & interview from Bull Nakano from Bull Nakano vs. Shinobu Kandori - LLPW 07/14/94 11:55 - Pre-Match Interviews for Akira Hokuto & Shinobu Kandori vs. Aja Kong & Bull Nakano - Queendom 03/27/94 13:37 - Post-Match promos from Akira Hokuto & Shinobu Kandori vs. Aja Kong & Bull Nakano - Queendom 03/27/94
  3. Taker also spiked Aiden English at least year's Saudi show in the same way. Seems a big coincidence for the same fuck-up to happen twice with the same wrestler but be the other guy's fault.

     Basically the story is when she was a teenager Mayu rejected a guy's advances, and the police having to get involved tells you how well he took it.

    Remember Bryan vs. Kofi was originally going to happen at Fastlane, but got pulled the week before for Bryan vs. Owens. My guess is Bryan vs. Ali was only meant to be a Fastlane match anyway, Kofi took Ali's spot, then he got really hot so that match was moved to Mania.

    He wasn't making a joke about the tubemen. His comment was that Kylie was "a ball of emotion and passionate... she's not wacky inflatable tubemen pretending to be nice she's actually..." [he then doesn't finish the sentence as he notices the audience reacting badly]. The reference to the tubemen was just identifying who he was negatively comparing Kylie's character to, it wasn't the subject of the remark. Also see on the Observer Board Bryan Alvarez is doubling down claiming he's heard stories of Bayley not being a nice person.

    I thought AJ vs. Seth was really good. Pulled off some really cool spots and Seth didn't do the injuring his knee then ignoring it thing.

    BEST PPV EVER. Bayley's Champion.

    When's the last time Daniel Bryan was on the pre-show? That's a weird call. Pulling for Bayley to win MITB. She's been looking really good this year.

    It may not have much of a Western fanbase but Dragon Gate has been the 2nd or 3rd biggest promotion in Japan for the last decade, it's not some little indie company. PAC has been their undefeated champion for the last six months. it is not sensible to expect him to take a loss to Adam Page of all people on this show. Forget about him personally, why would Dragon Gate agree to have their champ lose? If you book another promotion's champion you really should know what the politics of that are.
  11. The Saudi leadership works with Israeli intelligence regularly and doesn't even hide it nowadays... trying not to go on a political tangent, just this idea they might not let Goldberg into the country out of hatred of Jewish people isn't based on reality. It's all geopolitical games, they couldn't care less about the religious background of some wrestler. But to the topic, thing is I think the cause of WWE's decline is so structural the only way I see it reversing is if AEW is really successful and suddenly Vince (assuming he's just gonna run the company forever) feels he needs to loosen the grip for WWE to stay profitable. The product is dire because they have no stars. They stopped trying to create them post-Cena when they realised they can now make money with WWE The Brand as the draw (or at least that was the idea) and not have to deal with wrestlers getting leverage over the company, which means pulling the rug under the feet of anyone who evers gets any serious momentum lest they get too big. There's no incentive to change that system so long as it still makes money, it's a safer bet than empowering their workers.

    John Cena had more matches on it than Manami Toyota. Don't think many people would have predicted that.

    Thanks OJ. I've actually found a friend-of-a-friend who said he'd have a go, although he knows nothing about wrestling. I'll make a subtitle video if that goes anywhere.

    Anyone who's seen Stardom's streaming service knows they have English subtitles for the talking segments, which really helps following the storylines for those of us who don't speak Japanese. I've had this idea of asking someone to translate promos from famous matches and saving them somewhere, like I've always wondered what Misawa is saying in the post-RWTL interview that gets such a big response from the crowd, or what exactly is being said in the Queendom tag post-match. 1. Has this already been done, does anyone know? 2. Does anyone know an English/Japanese speaker who might do it? What fees they'd want? 3. If anyone else is interested I was thinking people could contribute to a paypal account or something, and then could vote on what they'd like to see a translation of. Thoughts?
  15. This is a really good stiff battle. There's a funny moment on commentary where they're extolling Dolph's technical skill in contrast to Sheamus' brute brawling style, meanwhile Dolph is unloading a flurry of punches at Sheamus. I really liked how they did the transitions, Sheamus lariating Dolph while he's sitting on the top turnbuckle looked cool and the finish got a cheer out of me. ***3/4
