In Topic: Blue Wolf vs. Minoru Suzuki (NJPW 8/8)

Damn, Asashoryu's brother used to be a pro-wrestler in NJPW. Reminds me of Zach Arnold's neverending rumours of Asashoryu is gonna do MMA in the same time frame.

That injury angle was amazing.

 

Yeah amazing. And not only that, but the Henka of Doom on Kotoshigiku ! HEEL HEAT !! Is Riki Choshu circa 93 booking sumo now ? (I've been watching too much pro-wrestling)

 

The issue with Mania is that it reached the point of being a self-conscious epic event as a whole. From a bunch of Mania Moments ™ by the mid-00's (which was already annoying as fuck) to ManiaMoment ™.

WresleMania feels like a chore or at least an obligation rather than a treat or an anticipated event these days.

 

Obligation is right. It's like "well, it's Mania, I kinda "need" to watch it". When in fact, I really don't. I'm perfectly happy going through TNA 2006 now D'Amore is still booking so it's quite the fine product. Until VR gets hired in the Fall or something.

 

I wish I was. It's nice to have things to look forward to. 

 

I look forward Destination X 2006 myself.

 

And the next basho. That Kisenosato win this month was fucking legendary. Perfect booking.


In Topic: NXT talk

Today, 03:00 AM

NXT has adopted too many main roster quirks and tropes that I just 100% do not like. The shaky camera, the over-hammy and corporate directive entrances, and being too inside baseball in the continued build of the overall brand are just some of the turn-offs.

 

Agreed. I noticed that too. The first Takeover I watched seemed quite different from the main stuff. Last Takeovers I saw mostly looked like the main stuff. And since I can't stand WWE overproduction, well...

I'm really excited about going to the Arnaud Rebotini "30 years of techno" all-night DJ set this week-end. Plus I'm gonna see Monarch! & Birushanah tonight. So yeah, probably gonna be a terrific few days.

 

Oh, you meant ? Nah, gonna watch bits & pieces on Monday. Mania has become a real chore. Too bad it can't be as idiotic as last year, at least that gave us a fun thread.
