  1. King of Debt

    All Elite Wrestling

    Maybe I should actually watch the product before I scramble in my wallet for cents but the vibes I've been getting from it all so far has been of a company who looks at all the studies showing that the average age of wrestling watchers is about 30-50+, says "Great! We know how to work those guys!", and forgot to ask the reason why, in a post-kayfabe MMA-era world, an adult of such an age would want the best for an art about two people pretending to hit each other and go ouch. I appreciate wrestling as a world-weary chap but if I didn't have that youngin's belief to trace it back to I wouldn't even know how to start admiring it in a fully unironic light. You can survive off the IWC but you won't be beating anybody with just the IWC. When we find a kid who gets excited for some guy smashing a prop chair with a sledgehammer, that's when we can have the discussion about AEW becoming #1

    Your 2019 Midyear Awards

    I don't watch enough promotions to throw my hat into a discussion like this but if there's a major show better than Spring Break 3 Night 1 it's probably in Show of the Decade territory

    Anybody have a spare, preferably combustible limousine lying around?

    Sorta off-topic but did I miss something or did about 80% of the SlamBamJam catalogue just...disappear into the nether?

    Interest in a Puerto Rico watch project?

    If you're able to wait until July for this I'd love to participate. I would still need to get my hands on the set somehow if it isn't floating through Youtube in bits and bobs but PR sounds like exactly my cup of tea. I just have to take a break for this wrestling malarkey while I move these boxes around in my own life

    Greatest Match Ever Project

    Man, you guys really need to get into deathmatch feds. It's not even as if there isn't a bloodlust in this place given the performance of Kandori/Hokuto and Chicana/MS-1 so it's crazy how out of 487 matches submitted there's absolutely no BJW, FREEDOMS, CZW or GCW in there (and even the general hardcore promotions didn't do so great outside of FMW). That probably sounds crazy from the outside and I can't exactly complain given I didn't send a ballot but I legit got tears of emotion in my eyes watching Takeda v Kodaka 6/20 the first time so I'll make that argument all day. The best parts of deathmatch wrestling are downright transcendental in their interpolation of violence as a creative and emotive force. Can't knock the hustle for getting this project together in the first place, though. Hopefully it grows throughout the years.

    Mania Week Insanity 2019

    It took a week but MurderMania Nights 1 & 2 are on Title Match Network. I don't know if it's clipped to high hell or not but if it isn't and you all made your Best of the Weekend lists before considering Casanova Valentine and the new Leatherface in a no-ring deathmatch, shame on you. Tut tut.

    Something something subjectivity something something something opinions something the great outdoors something. It's like Schnitzel once said - radda radda RADDA radda.

    Rock 'n' Roll Express, in their sixties, have still got it. God gave GCW too much power.
  11. I don't think people know that it was STYLE-E that Takeda got his start in, the training promotion of sorts (or at least the rung below U-STYLE) for the youngsters of the U-FILE CAMP run by Kiyoshi Goddamn Tamura. When Takeda wants to go, he can go - and he absolutely went. A very different beast to Thatcher/H Suzuki and Barnett/M Suzuki, short and sweet, quick-flicks between silk-smooth matwork and sickening schlaps. Every sparring sequence in this had me hopping out of my chair. MOTN on a ridiculously stacked card.

    Mania Week Insanity 2019

    Honestly Barnett vs Suzuki was exhausting to me, still great but so far from my cup of tea that it could never justify going as long as it did. Good for you if you get it but it's too slow and methodical. Gresham/Takeda was exactly my jam, though, just two men striking each other into comas. The whole thing besides the first match was really solid and it'd be my show of the weekend (assuming I won't bother to watch Takeover) if Spring Break Night 1 hadn't delivered both probably the best deathmatch-as-spectacle you could ask for in the main and a very, very possible contender for the greatest comedy match of all time in the Invisible Brothers match

    Watching BLP. Wasn't expecting Manny Fernandez and Swoggle to go over in the year of our lord 2019 but I'm strangely OK with it

    Mania Week Insanity 2019

    The IDTV Reunion Jay v Parnell was the first match of that feud I've seen and now I want to binge through the whole damn thing. Brutal in the best way.
