  1. This. The Roddy Strong from Orlando Live earlier this year is his second favorite match.

    The Classic Arenas

    Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan maybe the best (or at least my favorite) Japanese venue. Tons of classic matches from a ton of promotions in Japan have happened in that venue.

    American Indies running shows overseas

    @clintthecrippler pretty much summarized the GCW shows. It's basically a FREEDOMS shows with some GCW talent. When ROH first ran their shows in Japan years back, they had a partnership with Noah and Dragon Gate. The ring wasn't an ROH ring and it was more so a regular Noah ring they used with the ROH mat. Also, not everyone from ROH was on those shows and they had a lot of Noah and Dragon Gate talent to fill out the card. So it wasn't entirely a ROH show, but it was marketed as such. When CZW and CHIKARA ran shows in Germany some years ago, the same as ROH applies. These were pretty much co-promoted shows with wXw in Germany, but were sold as CZW and CHIKARA shows. A lot of talent on those shows had been booked for wXw, so I'm guessing they may chip in for the flights, so it doesn't fall solely on CZW or CHIKARA. I remember when New Japan ran shows back in 2011 in New Jersey. Those were co-promoted shows with JAPW and had a lot of guys JAPW would book regularly and they also had the JAPW setup, but they were promoted as New Japan shows solely even though they weren't.

    WWE Summerslam 2019

    Say what you will about Rollins, but that dude was way over tonight and the match was fantastic. I enjoyed it more than anything from last night. I love these wild Lesnar main events.

    That was one of those ECW finishes that would make Cornette lose his mind.

    Given there has been no title changes tonight, I will laugh out loud if Gargano wins the title back.

    Was Austin Theory being shown in the crowd as quiet live as it came across on video? First indy guy they show in the crowd who gets little to no reaction.

    It feels like they have overdone this (I know they haven't), but they should just have folks drop titles before moving up.

    Tegan Nox? She just came back from injury.
  13. I loved the sense of urgency from both guys, namely from Kakihara, namely when he got locked in that kneebar by Tamura and he quickly scrambled for to grab onto Tamura's ankle with an ankle lock and Tamura not even bothering to strike with Kakihara in some instances and just throwing him to the ground and going for submissions. Also loved him continuously going for the flying spin wheel kick as he knew it would hurt Tamura if he was able to land it and when he did indeed land it Tamura was rocked and had to rely by going to the ropes to have the ref. count as a down. That flash back take by Tamura into the rear naked choke was great and Kakihara did a fantastic job of trying to scramble to the ropes to break the hold as quick as possible. Also loved how both guys were packing heat in this and not holding back one bit. The palm strike exchanges were somewhat sloppy, but these guys were slapping the taste out of each others mouths regardless and those corner knee strikes from Tamura were brutal. Tamura also threw a Superman palm strike which maybe the oldest footage I have ever seen someone throw one in. I wouldn't have minded the final big Death Valley Driver if Kakihara at least tried fighting it off, but he just let Tamura lift him up and them dump him without trying to fight it off. The crowd was really into this as well constantly cheering on Kakihara. This was on its way to being a classic in my opinion, but both guys were visibly gassed near the finishing stretch and they had to drop the intensity and go for the finish. Really good match though regardless of that.

    The mOveZ Appreciation Thread

    I was Google searching for them, but I couldn't find them quickly, but: M2K vs. Italian Connection vs. Do FIXER vs. Crazy MAX - 4/1/2003 Crazy MAX vs. M2K vs. Do FIXER - 7/7/2002 Do FIXER vs. M2K vs. Crazy MAX - 7/14/2002 Those 3 would be a good starting point.
