    Pro Wrestling Love Is Now A PTBN Podcast Series

    99.99% sure that the 4/22/97 Tamura vs. Kohsaka is a shoot. It doesn't have the holes that you can see in the 6/27/98 match, as good as that match is to try to be as realistic as possible. RINGS was doing undercard shoots since 1992 (mixed with some kickboxing, etc.). No more than 1 match per show until 1998.

    Pro Wrestling Love Is Now A PTBN Podcast Series

    Have binged the first three weeks of the Shoot Style top 25 and am currently listening to the most recent episode. Highly enjoyable. I wouldn't do this right after you're done with the Shoot Style list so you don't burn out, but I think you can get a lot of extra context watching how UWF style transitioned into MMA. My recommendations would be: * Rumina Sato (watch all of his fights from 1994-2000 in chronological order and then also watch his 11/15/02 and 03/11/05 fights. * Kazushi Sakuraba (watch all of this fights in chronological order through the end of 2003) * Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira: his RINGS shoots in order and then his PRIDE fights in order through December 2004. And then watch the two Josh Barnett classics from 2006. * Kiyoshi Tamura non-worked RINGS fights: 04/22/97 vs Kohsaka, 4/23/99 vs. Frank Shamrock, 4/20/00 vs. Gilbert Yvel * Tsuyoshi Kohsaka: 9/26/97 vs. Frank Shamrock; 9/7/02 vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (DEEP) Let me know if I can help out in any way as I have almost all of these matches digitally.

    Greatest Rookie Year Ever

    Ronda would be my pick, especially since she did it in a horrible WWE environment and pulled good to great matches out of average to slightly above average wrestlers.

    G1 Climax 30

    Naito vs. ZSJ from Night 2 is probably tied with Ishikawa vs. Ikeda from wXw as 1-2 in my MOTY's.

    Greatest Match Ever Project

    "Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Kenta Kobashi ­ 26th Anniversary Show (Triple Crown - 10/31/98) Great match. But little things like half nelson suplexes on the floor that lead to nothing are auto deductions in my book. Not at the level of the 6/98 Kawada vs. Kobashi... and far behind the Misawa vs. Kobashi from 1997. Off my Top 20." So I assume this would have landed in his top 30-35.

    My New Year's Revolution: The Rewatchening

    Hadn't watched this in years. Did after your review and very glad I did.

    Consensus Greatest Lucha Trios Ever?

    Other candidates (more to come): 09/21/83 MS-1/Espanto/Satanico vs La Fiera/Sangre Chicana/Mocho Cota (CMLL) - A week after the famous MS1 vs. Sangre Chicana hair vs. hair match. Brawling, heat, and just a great match that you wouldn't necessarily think would happen a week after the anniversary show. 03/16/95 Rey/Santo/Octagon vs. Panther/Fuerza/Psicosis (AAA) - This and their 7/31/94 are basically the same. I like the 3/95 match a little more because of Rey's dive of the century being done for only the second time and being done to perfection here. 11/29/96 Santo/Salvaje/Scorpio Jr. vs. Casas/Dandy/Garza (CMLL) - Amazing heat worked very simply. Lots of brawling, blood, and build to the three way mask vs. hair vs hair match at the year end Arena Mexico show
  9. Been watching a lot of wrestling during the pandemic and don't remember anyone coming up with a "best trios match in lucha" nonetheless a list of the top 10 trios matches of all time. I have thoughts that I will add later but wanted to get the conversation started. What's the best lucha trios match that you've seen? What's your favorite lucha trios match?

    AJPW video quality

    Thank you! Had no clue about this.

    AJPW video quality

    Who has this? Would kill to see Hansen vs Kobashi in better quality than TV.

    Desert Island Graps: PWO Edition

    1. Wargames 1992 The best Wargames and the best gimmick match ever in Pro Wrestling for my money. 2. Misawa vs. Kawada 6/3/94 I've probably watched this 50+ times since 2002. Always holds up and always quenches my thirst for a good wrestling match. 3. Rey Jr. vs. Eddy Halloween Havoc 1997 See #2, increase to 100. This would also help tide over not having a true lucha match from Mexico on the island.

    Is Impact the best promotion in wrestling history?

    Enjoyed this but Vikingo has been in much better and TJP is much better as well. Didn't click as well as it should of.
