    Comments that don't warrant a thread - Part 4

    An even bigger WTF was that Tyler Breeze got the gig. Did I read somewhere that Liger asked for him?

    My bad...it stems from my belief that the fighting arts aren't "sports", because you don't "play" "brain damage".

    Cole called him a "Karate player".

    Does Vince dare job Mansoor in his hometown?

    Couldn't find a bookie taking bets on Ibushi. I can get $1.06 for the Liberal Democratic Party to form Japan's next government, though.
  7. Watching AEW makes me feel like I'm a part of something. I'm pretty sure that's Tony's intention. Watching WWE makes me feel like a dickhead a lot of the time. I'm pretty sure that's Vince's intention. So it's a dead cert that I'd rather watch Bunny.
  8. I beat the fuck out of Jeff Jarrett in a dream recently, which was odd because a) I'm non-violent and b) I don't mind Jeff Jarrett.

    The Shield

    Seth Rollins absolutely has all the tools needed to be an all-timer, except between the ears. He's been the most disappointing. Moxley has found himself and whilst the worst worker of the three, as the most charismatic he will probably be remembered most fondly. Roman's the hardest to finger (ahem). He's at his most memorable with others around him (Shield, Bloodline/Heyman) but he's got the matches the other two don't. I'm curious as to how often they switch him between face and heel over the coming years. I'm going Mox, for getting as far as he has without the natural abilities Seth and Roman were born with. He's made more out of less.

    AEW Rampage (and The Buy In) - October 15 2021

    Bryan/Mi-Su was a gift horse. It doesn't occur to me to check its teeth.

    I nearly disowned myself after watching this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC0TBtkccCU. It's a magician/wrestler called The Shocker on the latest Penn & Teller and forget dying a little inside, my heart poured kerosene on itself and lit a match. I think what hurts the most is that it's pro-wrestling on an international stage and it only strengthens preconceived disdain and mockery towards our sport. This is not what I want non-fans to see. It's worse than the theme song of Heels (ymmv).

    Agree fully with your reasoning, but it should hold that Okada is stepping up too, and if Okada - a real-life and kayfabe GOAT contender - was stepping up, we'd be writing, "Chase Owens was 31 and is survived by his wife and kids". I don't think anything is lost in making it a 12/14/16 man tourney, but it's a moot point.

    You'd think a Chase Owens or a YOSHI-HASHI or a Tanga Loa only exists in the G1 to give the other guys an easy night, but nah. It reminds me of Flair being criticised for needing 10-20 minutes to beat a Gilbert or an Eaton or a South. Owens should never be anything other than a squashed fool in a squashing fools equation. And fuck capitalising YOSHI-HASHI; it should be minimalised, as in yoshi-hashi.

    I don't think Kota Ibushi is demonstrably the lesser of his contemporaries D-Bry and Kenny, and may even have a deeper toolkit. Not that anyone is expressing that sentiment, but he's absent from the conversation, it seems. I enjoyed tonight's show, first I've caught in a while. Nothing you'd sell your firstborn to see, but nothing you'd take a corkscrew to your eyeballs over, either. Young Lions looked good, I swear they'll still be doing Boston Crabs in little black boots in the year 2121. Tanga Loa shouldn't be going more than eight minutes versus Shingo but I get it and he didn't offend. I picked the winner of the perfectly fine KENTA/ZSJ match (DM me if you want to send me a trophy). No predictions for the final, but Sabre versus Cobb would be an interesting match-up. Of all of New Japan's problems, perceived or otherwise, does the lack of an "ace" hurt them? I may be wrong but they feel "aceless" with Tana winding down, Okada just....floating around, Naito never made it, nor has Kota, EVIL was insipid rather than evil, and Shingo's the Champ/Man.... Am I reading it wrong? Is it Takagi? Still Okada? Or is the brand more important now than any of the independent contractors wink emoji?
