In Topic: Shoots Review and Preview thread

KC's Back to the Territories with Bill Eadie is a major winner. Eadie is truly a charming guy, tells a lot of stories and holy shit does he look like he refuses to age. 69 years old ? Really ?

 

Apparently they're gonna do Puerto Rico with Savio Vega, that's pretty cool. Can't think of anyone more suited. I'd love them to get Raymond Rougeau to do Montreal. This series has easily been the best and most consistent one they have released.

 

The consistency is probably attributed to Cornette. He clearly does an insane amount of research to prepare for these shoots, the last coupe of cold openings have been especially great. This series has shown how good of an interviewer he is, with his ability to keeps things moving along, and knowing the right questions to ask. And, now it seems like they're trying to cover some of the areas that aren't really remembered all that well, like Detroit and Houston (NWA Classics notwithstanding).

Savage got wins over Warrior during his first title run in 1989 after his heel turn. I don't know if it was specifically pins, however.

Was he perhaps tired of playing second fiddle to Misawa and saw this as his chance to be THE MAN finally? 

It was more the former than the latter. He and Misawa weren't getting along at all by that point. Kawada had already been cast aside in favor of Kobashi, and then Misawa was trying to make Kobashi and Akiyama the new top guys, while phasing himself out. So, it wasn't so much that he was sick of being in Misawa's shadow, as it was that he was just sick of Misawa. 


In Topic: Finishers as a concept

I'd like to see an O'Connor roll or even the Indy pin reversal sequence end a big match once in awhile. 

 

Punk and Cabana did that once, when they had an iron man match, and both lost track of the falls. So, they did the pin reversal sequence with Punk getting two counts, and Cabana getting three counts, since he was supposed to go over.


In Topic: Schiavone and Cornette's blind spots as fans

Jim's never been a fan of the WWF going back to the 70's, so I don't see why he would waste his time with it.

This. Cactus Jack got into WCW off the strength of his work in Continental, which almost nobody (save for Cornette) was watching at the time.
