    Well, I guess it's here ! Enough of the silly bullshit, time to get serious now !

    Can't work a lick, as showed in the NWA. Which looks more and more like a non-existent entity as each day passes and its talent is being signed here and there.

    AEW Dynamite - September16, 2020

    Please no. No MMA match on pro-wrestling shows. As far as Tay Conti, she has terrific potential, and I like her game already with all the funky submissions, but at this time she's still green as fuck. Let's not act like she's Mariko Yoshida already. Which is why AEW should bring girls like Serena Deeb, Sarita or Cheerleader Melissa. Need some more veterans.

    The good news is that the shows will only have one pre-G1 match and then the 5 G1 bouts. Much easier to digest. That being said, still a crazy time to not get behind, not get spoiled and not burn yourself out with pro-wrestling. Anyone got a cool grid like last year ?

    AEW Dynamite - September16, 2020

    I have seen the whole match (well, what was showed of it). Of course there was some awkwardness because Ivelisse absolutely did fuck with Rosa at times. And I don't make my opinion from a stupid gif posted on Twitter (especially from *that* Twitter account, thank you very much. ).

    AEW Dynamite - September16, 2020

    Yeah, "shooting"... Funny how there are people talking about how Ivelisse was so unprofessional and how she should be gone and making Gifs on Twitter because of my god this was sooo bad, but there are also a bunch of people who are like "Really good match there", basically, not making anything more out of it. Why I mentioned tight slapping, in a bit of a jest because I have talked about that before, is that watching the match, to me it just seemed rough around the edge and a wee bit heated, but that actually gave it an interesting edge and realism to it, which was *fun* to watch. People complain all the time that matches don't look like a struggle and too much like cooperation. Well, this looked more like a struggle. It had an old-school kinda japanese feel to it. So yeah, I think some people are way overreacting. Give me Ivelisse trying her opponent a little bit any day, it makes for fun stuff.

    The overreacting is amazing. People act like Ivelisse injured someone or something. Yeah, match got stiff (and was no less fun because of it). Big fucking deal. It's not like she carelessly threw a chair into someone's head or something. Or threw a helpless opponent straight into metal steps...

    NWA Weekly PPV

    So, Mike Benett totally looks like a younger, jacked-up Eric Young. Hey, he's actually quite a good worker too ! Total sprint. 10 minutes or so match with a ref bump ten seconds in. Kamille (who looks even more impressive than on Powerr) back at ringside to prevent Maria to protect her husband, I guess, although she did nothing when Maria gave Mike the belt (which he did not use in a very bad drama spot, as he would have been DQed if he did since the ref was right there). Awful announcing totally overselling the drama and emotion. Match itself was quite a good TV match, kinda like a Cody TNT title defense. Maria really good as a valet still. These two could be used pretty well somewhere. But, PPV ? Weekly PPVs ? Come on now.

    AEW Dynamite - September16, 2020

    Yeah, she will always and forever remain a highlight of the show that brought me back into current pro-wrestling. She did not have it easy at all. Damn, and now I realize I do miss Dario Cueto sitting in his office, planning some evil stuff... As much as I really enjoy AEW a lot, LU was the future.

    AEW Dynamite - September16, 2020

    People complain about too much tigh slapping and whatnot, then this happens and they complain again. I guess that was the AEW drama spot of the week. Gotta have one. Twitter People are bored. And boring, mostly.

    He's not doing that right now. Nothing clearly indicates he's gonna do it again in a near future either (the weekly PPV are not his deal apparently and definitely aren't done under the NWA umbrella). Hey, I'm an Ivy fan, I don't care. I'm also a Thunder Rosa fan. So, if I get Rosa on my AEW TV every week anyway, I'm fine with it. I'd rather have both, of course.

    Ring of Honor Wrestling

    The whole "UWF-I" approach kinda makes me want to give it a try, but I wonder if it isn't gonna get dry after a few weeks. Also, I think this stuff can work only with a certain kind of quality workers.

    MLW Fusion, anyone watching it?

    So the current promotion is coming back in November. If they go back on Youtube, I will probably give them another try, I was totally down on them during the last few months of activity, but maybe they can come up with something fresh again.

    That's kinda the beauty of it, actually. (for personal reasons, I will always kinda have a soft spot for anyone not giving a flying fuck) Although, burning bridges with the NWA is basically burning a bridge to nowhere (hey, I enjoyed the second season of Powerr, but let's be realistic for a second, those weekly "PPV" aren't even really NWA stuff).

    In the 90's, that would make for good little pro-wrestling folklore. In 2020, people make whining tweets and call for people to lose their jobs and win Internet points. Whatever happens with Ivelisse it's too bad, because she's better than 90% of the AEW roster (Diamanté is not even close to Ivy in term of in-ring talent, let's not be silly here). She may be difficult to deal with, but her stuff is not difficult to watch like, say, Swole. Oh anyway, it was fun while it lasted. IMPACT, wanna grab one more to piss off the usual Twitter crowd ? How long is Thunder Rosa gonna stay within the NWA btw ? I mean, really, she's the best catch AEW can do right now (straight at the very top of their female roster in term of both in-ring talent and charisma) and it seems she's becoming more and more of a regular... Yeah, really good stuff this week, nothing much to add to what's been said already. Main event was ridiculous

    I'd go for Ibushi too. My one issue with these blocks is that Block A final really looks like the final. There's absolutely no one this year on Block B that should win this (Sabre would be cool, be he ain't winning). Hopefully Gedo works his magic and we don't get too much Bullet Club Bullshit matches...

    AEW Dark Megathread

    And so Avalon vs Cutler ends up as a double count out. Of course it does. I hope they work the 20 minute draw eventually. Poor Leva, she looked in such a need of a hug at the end.

    Dave Meltzer stuff

    Very cool interview with Debbie Malenko. At 47 she now wants to get back into wrestling now that her children got older, that would be a terrific story. People talk about how women wrestling is kinda rated on a curve, sometime with good reason, but in Debbie's case, she was right in the middle of the most insane roster ever near its peak basically, and she was not just hanging on with them, she was actively on the level of the Hasegawa's and Yoshida's in 1992 (not quite elite level, but top-tier midcard level, which by this time's standard is awfully good already). Transfer 1992 Debbie Malenko in today's wrestling realm, she's right at the very top. Some really cool stories told, the old Mariko Yoshida fan in me loved how she credits her for helping her out a lot. Would absolutely love to see her make a comeback. AEW, IMPACT, make it happen (yeah, WWE is out of question when they make Mickie James out to be "old", which is such a disgrace) !

    One of the funniest thing in the last two seasons is how the whole universe just shrunk. Either that or a raven basically invented teleportation !

    Bro, they would never expect it bro. At least John Snow did not say to Danae "Come on Emilia, you don't follow the script ! What am I supposed to do now, improvise ?"

    Come on, she was obviously fucked up in the head from the start. It's not like the heel turn came from nowhere, she had the messiah syndrome since day 1. But she sure turned batshit insane in no time though, not exactly playing subtle of anything. All because John did not want to exchange body fluids with his aunty anymore... (well yeah, ok, that's Russo too )

    I had no idea what you were referring to since I don't know the name of pretty much anyone apart from Emilia Clarke. Oh, ok, you mean *that* scene. I'm not that easily offended by violence in movies, but I was repulsed and appalled by this shit and it is exactly one reason why I always thought GoT was a completely ridiculous show, very poorly written, using gratuitous, complacent violence, torture and rape scenes to get a buzz (not to mention swerves, bro, that Vince Russo or M. Night Shyamalan would be proud of). Completely unecessary gory shit and psychological violence that I really did not want to watch. Game of Thrones is the most overrated show ever. Good for hate watching indeed (from the very start), while fast-forwarding the most repulsive torture/rape scenes. Gotta love how every woman was naked and flashing tits and ass all the time in the first few seasons then got dressed up like nuns in the later ones because, ya know... I do laugh my ass off at all the young couples who named their daughter Dany or Danae because she was such an inspiring empowering and whatnot female figure... and then... wooops, didn't see that ending coming.

    NWA Weekly PPV

    Probably because it's less an NWA show than several indies working together. With Mike Bennett in the main event... Nothing against the guy, but really now. Free on Youtube, I'd probably bat an eye at the main event, just for the sake of it. By sheer virtue of working All Out and Dynamite, Thunder Rosa is a much bigger name than anyone there.

    The guy is young, good looking, engaged to Penelope Ford... Yeah, basically jealousy.

    AEW Dynamite - September 9, 2020

    He's a kinda fun character, needs to develop his game, pretty good worker but nothing special shown thus far. Considering the ridiculous amount of hatred he gets here, he's safely in the "underrated" category. It's not like he has got any kind of serious push thus far either.
