Maybe it is him?

I reckon he listens to Cornette reviews, and then writes up essays to tweet to him about how Cornette is wrong, out of touch, etc.

Am I the only one who doesnt rate the undertaker? If you look at his entire body of work, there are far far FAR more shitty matches than exceptional ones, and then we have years of him being trotted out once a year to put on another shit show, and now you cant watch anything on the network without seeing a trailer for his retirement at survivor series, cant come soon enough for me.

I thought his best stuff was probably 2001-2010. He had great stuff with Angle, Brock, HBK, Jeff Hardy. Not just matches but good build / stories etc.

I decided to seek out this promo and I'm sorry it was awful. The funny thing is it felt like a WWE promo from 10 years ago, like a promo challenge on the old NXT show. Where she. pauses after. every two. words that. she says. It was very 'wrestling' in a bad way.

Clearly that's only because you and @Shane88 share the same WWE brain

You missed the subtlety of how her background makes her stand out and how she has a leap that's better than Jordan
It's things like that which only wrestling intellects can understand hence why you will never understand why ratings matter

Yeah

Slightly disappointed Jade Cargill hasn't made her AEW "in-ring" debut by murdering Austin Gunn.

Poor girl's been on that front row next to him, and the man just does not shut up. I've not seen Dynamite yet, but I was watching Full Gear with some friends in a Discord chat, and us yelling "SHUT UP AUSTIN" became a running bit.

Zelina gone from WWE...


Probably an acrimonious split...


Guess she knew this was coming since she set up an Onlyfans a few weeks ago.

That would have been an interesting debut too :lol:

He did well in the ring a couple of weeks ago, looks good. But yeah he's trying to be an entire crowd when hes one man

Didnt expect Zelina to be released. She's a good talker, okay in the ring but shes very small if thats a factor for you. They had a good thing with her talking for Andrade, now I cant imagine much happens for him without her.

Shes also one of the people in The Rock's movie about Paige, doubt hes too impressed with her being gone. In a talking role she'd certainly bring something to AEW but the roster is so big already that they really need a 2nd proper show before adding people.

Women's roster needs all the help it can get. An absolute after thought in AEW which doesn't get spoken about enough.

They seem to be going big on pushing Drew vs Randy. When they advertised it while Roman was coming down, I thought that Drew was going to win the title. Now they’ve built to him vs Roman, I’m convinced he will.

They have plenty of people better than Zelina, we arent talking about Sasha or Io here. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

They do however continue to push people like Big Swole for unknown reasons which leads to more sloppy matches than is needed. And Riho is stuck in Japan

The women's division is terrible. It's not about their workrate, it's about how they're being used. Which is terrible.

"Stardom announced this morning that they will be running their 10th anniversary show at Budokan Hall in March.

During intermission of the Sendai Cinderella show that ran on Sunday morning, Stardom announced that their 10th anniversary show will run on March 3 at Budokan Hall. This will be a big change of venue compared to last year’s show, when they ran at Korakuen Hall. This will be their first time running Budokan Hall.
No matches or names were announced for the event.

Last night’s show featured Utami Hayashishita defeat Mayu Iwatami to win the World of Stardom title, Giulia defeating Konami to retain the Wonder of Stardom title, Syuri defeating Bea Priestley to win the SWA Undisputed World Women’s title, Momo Watananabe defeating Himeka, ZAM defeating Gokigen Death to retain the High Speed title, Cosmic Angels defeating Oedo Tai in a six-person tag team match, Starlight Kid defeating Hanan, Hina, Riho, and Saya Kamtani, and Maika defeating Saya Iida to retain the Future of Stardom title.
Stardom also held a match earlier this year at the Tokyo Dome, prior to the first night of Wrestle Kingdom 14. In that match, Mayu Iwatani and Arisa Hoshiki defeated Hana Kimura and Giulia."

Heres a picture of Budokan from Omega Vs. Ibushi to show what kind of capacity it has



Will be the biggest live womens wrestling show in many years

And heres their most recent free tv show put up a while after its shown on tv in Japan for anyone interested to see what they are like

She set up a OnlyFans account. I can't say I'm surprised she's gone.

I doubt The Rock cares remotely.

OnlyFans isnt a porn site. Its a way to share content for a subscription.
Im sure she does it based on her cosplay.
(Not that im saying thats what you think but a lot of people seem to think that)

I assume its because WWE wasnt getting any money from it and she refused to back down. I guess its based on contractual wording, but I really hope the 'independent contractor' part is looked at esp with Vinces buddy out of office (and Yang being against it)

It may not technically be marketed as a porn site, but it's a porn site.

Patreon would be a better platform to use for creatives I imagine. More variety on there.

Its not a porn site, its a way women exploit their simps for money. Just the idea that there are going to be slightly more exclusive and sexual photos is enough to part some idiots with their money. Most barely do anything they werent already putting up on tinder or instagram and they still rake in the cash.

I can’t stand Nia at all. What is she meant to be good at? I’d rather read a copy paste post about some Joshi wrestling than watch anything to do with her.

what a waste of Mitb it has been. Otis should never have won it at the first place and then having won should not have lost to Miz. Wwe are in a spot not. Miz should no way be a wwe champion in 2020 especially when drew and randy are doing a fine job. The only way to save it is have miz fail to cash his MITB due to Morrison and have them feud each other.

2016/2017 they should have pulled the trigger on miz (again). Since then, he's not been given much and just making the best of it really. He's not as hot/over as he was back then, that's for sure.

Drew vs. Reigns should be great.

Hopefully the WWE will realise that a screwy finish isn't the only way that we'll want to see a rematch.

Making people dislike her as shes a big heel? This is the basics of wrestling here. Amazing you still dont get it
