An appropriate finish as that match did to each of us what Corbin just did to Nakamura.

Really you have to protect Corbin?   :rolleyes:

 

By the way  Nakamura really didn't get a great reaction from a Philly crowd that should go apeshit for him.  Not sure if that speaks to how average he has been on Smackdown or how dull Corbin is in the ring

I made it about this far through the Nak match and while I think a bearhug is a good heat-generating move for Corbin, I decided I'm going to go back and watch that Dunne/Bate takeover match that people really liked instead. I'm just not good at modern WWE PPVs I guess. There's no urgency anymore and as much as I like you guys, without that, the shared live experience is good for Mania and little else. Nothing feels like it matters anymore.


I mean, when you get the opportunity, I know some other matches you couls watch...

 

At this rate, with NWAonDemand down, i'm going to have to lose bets just to figure out what to watch. I'll have both of yours watched/written up by the end of this week barring disaster. I'm running casual and noteless tonight. (which means I'm not writing up this Bate/Dunne one either, though I will say that I love how into everything Dunne is. Surly teenager isn't necessarily a hard character, but the commitment is charming).

Try the Stardom streaming service. Lots of content and it's broken up into matches.

Yes and yes.  And yes.

Nakamura is coasting ever since his Dallas match against Zayn. After that lackluster NXT run it shouldn't come off as a surprise that he's putting almost minimal effort in his matches.

Let's go Becky. Yes I'm biased but she's the best wrestler in the match.

I agree Nakamura is coasting but Corbin is just awful. I don't get what they see in the guy at all.

Cosign.  Take DDT for a spin -- they have a women's group on their service as well so plenty to mix it up, although DDT is very hit or miss for me.  The comedy stuff just doesn't do it for me but they've got some really great, young wrestlers as well.  

 

G1 is an obvious go-to.  A few fun workers in Sendai Girls which is easily accessible in the archive.

I'm doing a Battleground live blog at Segunda Caida. I'm already loving it because Aiden English got a clean pinfall win. This is truly a momentous night.

You've got to be kidding me. Natalya ? Only for total divas she'd be even more irrelevant than she is now.

Jesus that's put me in a bad mood. Natalya is living off her family's name and couldn't hold her uncles, cousin, and fathers coat in terms of character and in ring ability.

Nattie has the most realistic character in the company I don't know what you're talking about.
